Hey Jorge, Obama Cannot Be Trusted

Bless their pointy, empty heads. Big Media outlets, in worship of Obama, continue to butt their heads against the cemented brick wall of reality. After last night’s primaries Politico writers dressed in their Harlequin finery to proclaim “Primary night yields good news for Obama, Dems.” The dervishes whirling at the New York Times toasted with Hopium filled chalices and celebrated “A primary victory boosts White House – For now.”

But the afternoon Hopium hangover hit hard. Rasmussen’s new presidential approval poll came out and it was sobering on all issues. Directly beneath the dubious headline of last night’s “triumphs” was a much more ominous and honest headline: “Stocks retreat as gloom descends on several fronts.” By the end of the day the Dow Jones industrial average was down by 265.

[And as a sidelight, today the Blagojevich jury is deadlocked; deadlocked as in they don’t have a verdict on “any given count”; job openings fell in June; the “leave Michelle Obama alone” youtube is up; and the Mosque of Doom just won’t go away.]

The Colorado results were hailed today as good news for Obama Dimocrats. But did any of these Hopium guzzlers notice the vote totals? For instance, in the Colorado Senate race the Republican loser got 197,143 votes. The Dimocratic winner received 183,521 votes. Both races were contested. The Republicans won on turnout.

The desperate Hopium guzzlers also faced a buzz kill this morning when the Obama backed Dimocratic winner effectively stated that Obama would not be welcome as a campaigner this fall. Another buzz kill was a widely ignored article in the New York Times, with this headline: “Obama’s Youthful Voters More Likely to Skip Midterms.”

But the biggest buzz kill of all came from the mouth of Harry Reid. Harry Reid said “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican.Harry Reid pulled out a race card then tried to put it back in the deck. The race card is Barack Obama’s and Harry Reid’s favorite card and they pull it out repeatedly.

Latino Republican and Florida Senate candidate Marco Rubio hit back at Harry Reid.



But Marco Rubio, for all his popularity nationwide and in Florida, is not the Latino story today. Harry Reid, for all the damage he might have caused in Latino populated states like Nevada and Colorado, is not the Latino story today. The story today is Jorge. Jorge Ramos.

“President Barack Obama has lost the most trusted man in the Hispanic media.

Univision’s Jorge Ramos, an anchor on the nation’s largest Spanish-language television network, says Obama broke his promise to produce an immigration reform bill within a year of taking office. And Latinos are tired of the speeches, disillusioned by the lack of White House leadership and distrustful of the president, Ramos told POLITICO.”

Dear Jorge, perhaps you have heard the Big Pink mantra. Memorize it. Repeat it as a daily affirmation. Say it with us Jorge:

Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.

Obama cannot be trusted by friend nor foe:

He has a credibility problem right now with Latinos,” Ramos said. “We’ll see what the political circumstances are in a couple of years, but there is a serious credibility problem.”

Ramos has been called the Walter Cronkite of Spanish-language media, an unparalleled nationwide voice for Hispanics. And just like the famed CBS newsman’s commentary helped turn the country against the Vietnam War, Ramos may be on the leading edge of a movement within the Hispanic media to challenge the president on immigration — a shift that some observers believe is contributing to Obama’s eroding poll numbers among Latino voters.

“When you have a Univision and a Telemundo taking an aggressive and active role pointing to the White House inaction, it calls attention,” said Jose Cancela, president of the media consulting firm Hispanics USA. “It is not helping the administration at this point in time.”

Obama does not seem to realize that you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.

“The editorials and commentary from the Spanish-language media have been brutal since April, when Arizona passed its controversial immigration enforcement law — a moment that crystallized a sense of urgency among Latinos but also underscored how little progress the White House had made on reform.

“Words matter,” Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balart said in April on NBC’s “Meet the Press” — adding that Obama’s campaign promise, known as “La Promesa de Obama,” has gone unfulfilled. “We haven’t seen it.”

Words matter? Who knew? The endless rain of Obama words never had any meaning followed up with action. Words matter – interesting concept.

“The president’s major immigration speech last month only created more discontent.

La Opinion, the country’s largest Spanish-language daily newspaper, titled its editorial, “Words are not enough.”[snip]

Cheap and easy rhetoric,” La Opinion contributor Jorge Delgado concluded.”

Spanish Big Media (and if you do not know the world-wide reach of Univision and Telemundo – you better start watching the hours long extravaganza which is “Sabado Gigante”) is really Big Media. Spanish language Big Media will not be bought off with Michelle Obama publicity stunts in Spain. Spanish language Big Media refuses to be Obama’s lap dog:

“It is unprecedented what Spanish-language media has been doing over the past several months,” Cancela said in an interview. “Many in the administration thought there was a cozy relationship and the Spanish-language media would play the role of quiet cooperator. It has been a wake-up call.”

The shift in tone among Hispanic opinion makers is helping solidify a narrative about Obama among Latino voters. They held great hopes for the president — given his promise in a May 2008 interview with Ramos to draft an immigration reform bill during his first year in office — but he has deeply disappointed them so far.

“Latinos voted overwhelmingly for President Obama, and they expected him to keep his promise and he broke his promise,” said Ramos, author of the recently released book “A Country for All: An Immigrant Manifesto.”

American Big Media better get the rewrite desk. Maybe Colorado last night was not such a good night. If Jorge is gone a lot of Latinos will go with him.

“The swing in opinion couldn’t come at a worse time for Democrats, who need a strong Latino turnout in November if they hope to maintain control of Congress. That voting bloc could be decisive in dozens of competitive House, Senate and gubernatorial races across the West, according to a report by America’s Voice, an immigration reform advocacy group.

But polls show signs of trouble. Obama’s approval rating among Hispanics dropped from 69 percent in January to 57 percent in May, even as his support among black and white voters remained stable, according to the Gallup Poll.

In a Univision/Associated Press poll released last month, only 43 percent of 1,521 Hispanics surveyed from March 11 to June 3 said Obama is adequately addressing their needs. [snip]

The president heavily courted Hispanic voters with La Promesa, and Democrats control both chambers of Congress. Latinos may acknowledge that it takes 60 votes to do anything in the Senate, but they’re not accepting it as an excuse.

“It was lukewarm,” said Ruben Funes, editorial page editor for La Prensa newspaper in Orlando, Fla. “It is not really strong support from him.”

Obama Dimocrats have so hocked themselves to a patchwork of racial and ethnic groups that now they are in trouble. Obama and his thugs dumped the winning FDR and Hillary Clinton coalition and the new Obama Dimocrat coalition is not worth a warm bucket of spit.

Latinos via Jorge might be the first group (beating Gays, Jews, Women) to detox from the Hopium:

“Editorial page editors and Spanish-language journalists told POLITICO that their coverage reflects rising frustration in their community. For years, they said, Democratic leaders told Hispanics to be patient; now, their patience has run out.[snip]

“There is a disappointment of a promise that has not been fulfilled,” said Henrik Rehbinder, La Opinion’s editorial page editor. “More than disappointment is some anger, some resentment, over the fact that this administration was going to be sensitive to family separations, and they really are not.” The critique from Ramos could prove particularly damaging to the White House.

A Mexican immigrant and Univision anchor for more than 20 years, Ramos carries such weight with Hispanic-Americans that his commentary is viewed as the definitive take on an issue — “kind of the final word on it,” said America’s Voice Executive Director Frank Sharry.

Ramos turned critical after the first anniversary of Obama’s Inauguration, when it became clear the promise would not be met, and he hasn’t let up on the administration since.

“They know they are in trouble with the Hispanic community, and the problem in November is the Hispanic vote may be up for grabs again,” Ramos said. “My fear is they might not vote. They don’t feel protected or supported by either party.”

Jorge baby, Obama can’t be trusted. Get that simple fact into your head. Get that simple fact to your viewers. Whatever side of the illegal immigration issue you are on, Obama can’t be trusted. Whatever side of the legal immigration issue you are on, Obama can’t be trusted. Whatever side of whatever issue you are on, Obama can’t be trusted.

Get it now Jorge?

[Note: Tomorrow we introduce another must-be-memorized mantra to supplement the current mantra. Don't miss it Jorge.]

    This is one of the most powerful columns you have written so far. The Hispanic vote is crtical to his re-election. I live in this part of the country, and although the polls are telling them one thing, the Dems are monopolizing the media with thir opinions. It reminds me of the primary in this state, when HRC won and the party acted like and behaved like she had not.

    I would like the party leadership really through out of office here. It might happen if people get made enough. Many of the inclumbents are in trouble or neck and neck in the polling. November will be interesting to say the least.

    I was raised around Latinos here in Texas, once they dump you, you stay dumped. They will be looking for someone to deliver this next time, you betcha!

    Admin: Great article! The left led by Jane Hamsher is giving Obama hell each and everyday, the hispanics lead by Jorge is doing the same and of coarse we Hillary supporters have been doing it since day one. How can he survive? The AA vote is only 14% of the US population. The dims better smarten up or it will be curtains.

    If I am a latino voter, I’m thinking at least George Bush tried. The worst mistake the Repubs made was to back stab GW on immigration, and now Obama has blown that advantage too. Amazing.

    Jonathan Cohn puts down the Hopium Hookah for a few minutes:

    http://www.tnr.com/blog/jonathan-cohn/76931/dems-happy-about-primaries-me-not-so-much

    The early spin on last night’s primaries is that it was a good night for the Democrats, largely because Republican voters in four states rallied behind candidates who, in the words of Politico, are “tarnished by scandal, gaffes or some other significant vulnerability.” And when you think about the likes of Linda McMahon, the World Wrestling tycoon, running for the Senate from Connecticut, the spin makes a lot of sense. [snip]

    But something else on the GMA broadcast got my attention–and not in a good way.

    Stephanopoulos’ other guest was Michael Bennet, the Democratic senator from Colorado, who’d just beaten insurgent Democrat Andrew Romanoff. Stephanopoulos put to Bennet the questions Republicans are already asking–namely, how does he defend his votes for health care reform, the stimulus, and other items on the Obama agenda? Bennet responded by dodging the question every bit as brazenly as McMahaon had hers, instead talking about the Republicans and their lack of a positive agenda.

    Now, this was a brief interview, apparently taped last night not long after the results came in. Given time, perhaps Bennet would have made a more explicit and direct defense of those votes. And maybe this isn’t so indicative of the way he’s run, or will run, his campaign. Honestly, I haven’t followed the Colorado race very closely.

    But Bennet’s answer seems to be of a piece with what I understand to be the basic Democratic strategy for the midterms: Make this about the Republicans and their lack of fitness for office.

    And that worries me for two reasons. First, it’s a sign of how weak Democrats seem to be politically right now. It’s just not a good sign when candidates have to run, as far and as fast as they can, from their party’s agenda. And while I’d expect Democrats to do that in the deep South, Colorado is a swing state that’s been trending Democratic and voted for Obama in 2008.

    Second, I just don’t have a lot of faith in this strategy. When a candidate’s argument is all about why the other guy is worse, it doesn’t exactly build up voter confidence. And if the candidate is an incumbent, I fear, a lot of voters will eventually decide some kind of change is better than the status quo.[snip]

    The bottom line is that Democrats are still in a lot of trouble, notwithstanding last night’s results.

    Mj, Obama’s Gallup numbers on Immigration:

    29% approve

    62% disapprove.

    http://hotair.com/archives/2010/08/11/gallup-obama-finds-majorities-elusive-on-issues/

    Bear in mind that it was just a few months ago that Obama thought he could split the GOP on immigration and pick up some midterm seats in the resulting collapse. He grandstanded incessantly on Arizona’s immigration enforcement law to that end, only to have it blow up in his face when polls showed it to be widely popular in just about every state in the US. Activist groups favoring open-borders policies are furious that Obama hasn’t done more to push comprehensive immigration reform, but even Obama knows he can’t move anything with those numbers.

    Going into the midterms, the two issues voters care about most are the economy and the deficit, both of which Obama flunks among the general population. The one accomplishment of his term has been ObamaCare — which the electorate hates. Obama has little choice but to keep invoking George W. Bush, but at this rate, he may start to envy Bush’s approval numbers.

    President Bill Clinton Receives a World Leadership Award from Usher

    The Obama supporters have awakened a sleeping giant, and this quote says it all:

    “If the upcoming election results fail for any reason (including GOP campaign incompetence) to empower the public’s overwhelming desire to stop and reverse the “fundamental transformation” of the United States, I suspect the country will be rocked to its core within the following months and few years.

    A foul and dangerous brew is heating up that is composed of (1) the economic collapse that started in 2008; (2) the radical, “fundamentally transforming” left-wing agenda of the government; and, (3) the thwarting of the public will — with glee — by the entrenched, non-elected powers (in the courts, media, colleges and government bureaucracies) as they get into the face and under the skin of the cultural and political majority.

    It is insufferable (and will not long be suffered) to be lectured to and imposed upon by a ruling class that loathes our nation’s history, values, and accomplishments by those who are not, in fact, our genuine betters. They are neither better educated nor more profoundly morally versed.

    In fact, they are our intellectual and moral inferiors.

    Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan didn’t think the Declaration of Independence’s proclamation that human beings “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” should in any way affect her understanding of our constitutional rights, presumably, if any.

    Part of the building danger derives from the fact that Americans now tend to self-select our news, opinion and entertainment sources based on our political beliefs and cultural and religious preferences. As a result, the nation no longer shares a common database of civic reality.

    Many liberals have no sense of how deep and roiling this no-longer-just-conservative passion is. Or they assume it involves some small, mendacious, ideological faction rather than a broad-based, nonideological, building national majority, which it does.”

    Can not tell you how many times I heard during the 2008 election; “How can you as a gay man ever vote for a Republican”
    I am not just a gay man I am a gay American. I am also a brother, an uncle, a friend. Religious tolerance is a two way street. The thought of sharia law is sickening to me. The travesty planned at or near ground zero should not be able to have a tax exempt status as in my opinion islam itself denegrates a select group of people(women).

    I still am confounded by the fact that the sleeveless wonder posing as first lady declined to attend ground zero on the anniversary. And the press said nothing.

    Democrats count on women, gays, blacks and to an extent latinos. Seems to me they have taken far to advantage.

    Hope and Change, already obsolete for 2012!

    The Obsolescence of Barack Obama
    The magic of 2008 can’t be recreated, and good riddance to it.

    Fouad Azami in WSJ OpEd
    —————–
    I always overestimated the intellect (big word) of American electorate but was tremendously disappointed in 2000 and then again in 2008. I guess people who come from other parts of the world and make this country their home see the chicanery more easily as does Fouad Azami. The price quote from the article is this:

    The magic of 2008 can’t be recreated, and good riddance to it. Slowly, the nation has recovered its poise. There is a widespread sense of unstated embarrassment that a political majority, if only for a moment, fell for the promise of an untested redeemer—a belief alien to the temperament of this so practical and sober a nation.

  • wbboei

    Obama never learned the first rule of governing which is– under-promise and over-deliver. The reverse does not work so well. It makes you look incompetent or deceitful and sooner or later everybody gets pissed off. If you are in a tough negotiation, as he has been from the beginning, although I am quite sure he never realized it, you have to measure your words carefully because it isn’t just what you say, but what the people who sign on to your agenda think you said. So when you blather on about hope and change, everyone interprets those words to mean what they want them to mean and believes you have made a promise. And then of course when you are elected and do not fulfill that promise, you are in deep trouble like he is now.

  • nomobama

    I logged in tonight to see if there was an article on this site devoted to the Blago trial. I am hoping to see one here once the verdict is given.

    Concerning the hispanic population and their support for obama, I like that they are disenchanted with him, but I do not support their reasons as to why. They are on the opposite side of the immigration issue, than I am, specifically illegal immigration. They want amnesty which is what many in positions of power within the Democratic party support. Sorry, but I don’t/can’t feel sorry for them. I don’t support their agenda of amnesty. I support what most Americans seem to support. Protected borders closed to illegal immigration, and immediate repatriation of illegals back to from where they came. The supporters of amnesty will keep forcing the issue of amnesty for illegal aliens over, and over, and over again. Amnesty given today will be the reason they use for amnesty given on any future date. It is wrong. They complain about “split families”. Maybe if they stayed within their own country, they wouldn’t have that problem to worry about.

  • wbboei

    Question: why do you think the elites who supported Obama are keen to have Hillary become his vp?

    a. They know he is in trouble and thinks she can save him.

    b. They want to give her the respect she is due.

    c. They want to say we were not wrong to support Obama because Hillary cannot solve the problems either.

    Knowing those people as we do, I guarantee you that the correct answer is c.

    Thus, if we need another reason why she should not accept the vp position, there you have it.

    Well said nomobama. You either have a sovereign nation or you don’t. A nation that lacks the will and capacity to protect its borders is not a sovereign nation. It is an open system and it will be a lawless society–especially in an era of high unemployment. If you cannot protect borders then the justification for all forms of private property loses its sanctity. But this was another Obama constituency who he over promised and under delivered to and they are pissed about it. But it is their own doing as well. Whatever they thought he would do for them was not realistic. They are a single issue constituency and there are other interests to be weighed as well.

    Let’s face it, he thought the economy was cyclical, and all he had to do was pretend a little (after all his party had the majority), and he would be a hero. Then he could be back to the basketball, vacations, running all over the country, and of course incumbents always win. What did he have to worry about.

    Maybe he thought his 8 years would not face a challenge like 9/11 or Katrina. That could happen, but a good administrations run drills on it happening just in case, to make sure they are ready. With the media at his back, should that happen, they could just ignore it, and the voting public would be no wiser for it.

    However, someone invented the internet, and it is very hard in today’s world to get away with not doing your job at his level for long. He finally had to perform, and the guardian angels that got him there realized that he knows so little, and promised so much, it is impossible to make this fantasy work.

    I have begun to laugh when the dims tell me he has really accomplished a lot, and people just don’t have the information. How could that be. The media would move heaven and earth to make sure that we understood the Messiah the way they did. But then, did they really understand him?

    There are some great bible passages about worshipping false idols.

    What intrigues me about the illegal flow of immigrants is that I keep hearing people say no one else will do the job.

    I grew up on the out skirts of Pittsburgh and I remember very well when the mills shut down or went to a very low capacity. I had an uncle and an aunt she had never worked and he had only ever worked in a mill. They had two kids and both went to work as dishwashers in a restaurant. They did what they had to do. Extending unemployment in my opinion is only creating a bigger problem. It just makes no sense to me that if we have high unemployment how any person not entering the country legally can hold claim to a job that others won’t do.

    Thanks. I agree completely with your comments on illegal immigration. The one thinkg missing from an otherwise briliant as usual post is who is going to represent Americans and American law.

    I certainly don’t want to see both parties tripping overthemselves to overturn our laws and give citizenship to people who broke our laws to come here.

    After the Arizona law suit decision, a reporter was interviewing some of the latino protesters….and one said…there is no difference between documented and undocumented…we have a right to be here.

    The reporter made no follow up comments but if a person enters the country illegally or stays in the country illegaly, they do not have a right to be here.

    It is unbelievable that no one is disabusing them of this notion.

  • basement angel

    I don’t know if you guys caught John Aravosis’ comments yesterday, but you’ll find it interesting:

    Gibbs is now claiming, on behalf of the White House, that anyone who is upset with the way President Obama is handling his job clearly did not organize, campaign, or raise money for candidate Obama back in 2008.

    Really? That’s the latest White House response to Obama voters [not, one notes, D voters] who are sincerely concerned about the direction this White House is taking on so many issues. To smear everyone and suggest that they didn’t lift a finger to get the President elected? Seriously?

    Then there’s all that work we did for the campaign, all the dirty work they asked us to do — and we did it, gladly, and quietly [Cross your ankles, please. We've only got one nail.] – none of that counted either, apparently.

    Now what dirty work could he be referring to the netroots having performed for Obama? Hmmmmmm….

  • henry

    Carol
    In this whole discussion of how to deal with those that have been here I feel the need to bring up an issue i brought up her before.
    In 2004 I worked in a restaurant in Manhattan. The restaurant was audited by the IRS. My employer had claimed a certain income for me, The IRS disagreed with the amount and gave me a bill for almost 5 grand. Well the only people that got chased down by the IRS were actual Americans. The goes who were working illegally claimed 5 dependents. So they never owed any money. These guys did not have five dependents at least not in America. You do not have to supply an ssn until you file the taxes. So if you are illegally you claim as many dependents to minimize with holdings. I had to pay almost 5 grand in penalties and interest and back payments. Someone that was illegal not only did not pay but got a paycheck every week. Mine were non=negotiable. This other person got paid.

  • henry

    What i do not understand is if you give amnesty to illegal immigrants who worked and committed fraud how can you then penalize american citizens?

  • admin

    Basement Angel, we featured the Aravosis quote in the previous article. As to dirty work we can speculate.

    Aravosis and Andrew Sullivan and the rest of that hideous crew wrote twisted articles repeatedly about DOMA and DADT. That bunch of evil propagandized how Bill Clinton signed legislation in the 90s that was anti-Gay. What these corrupt creeps left out was the context of that legislation and the fact that Bill Clinton was pro-Gay before it was cool to be pro-Gay.

    They never mentioned that it was Obama supporting Democrats (like Sam Nunn) that opposed Bill Clinton and his pro-Gay agenda in the 90s. They never mentioned the frail Democratic majorities in the 90s, the surging Republican Party, and the hostility of a strong majority of the electorate towards Gay people.

    Those with limited historical knowledge or who were simply too young believed these dirty lies against Bill Clinton. That Hillary Clinton marched in Gay Pride parades when it was politically difficult and Obama has to this day never marched in a pride parade these dirty people did not discuss.

    There was a lot of dirty work performed by all these people.

I know I probably sound silly but I think most of the lawyers, activists, freaky progressives got exactly what they wanted by losing Ohio. Unbridled anger,

    As economic recovery wavers in the United States, evidence is mounting that growth abroad is also slowing and may be unable to sustain the fragile rebound here.

    Concerns about flagging global growth weighed heavily on stocks Thursday, as Japan’s Nikkei index dropped more than 2 percent before recovering some of those losses, which came off steeper declines Wednesday in American equities.

    Those market drops followed a spate of developments signaling a slowing economy both in the United States and abroad. On Tuesday, Federal Reserve officials warned that the pace of recovery in the United States had slowed. Then on Wednesday came news from China suggesting its fast-growing economy was cooling. And later that day, the Bank of England reduced its already diminished forecast for the British economy.

    Finally, new trade figures from Washington showed that American exports were faltering, a sign that hard-pressed domestic manufacturers could not rely on overseas markets to ease their pain at home.

    Those reports sent the Dow Jones industrial average tumbling in a 265-point decline, moving it back into the red for the year. The broad market fell 2.8 percent. And those declines carried into Asia on Thursday morning.

    The optimism that had pervaded Wall Street only weeks ago has faded quickly. In its place is a growing realization of what many Americans have been feeling in their bones: this is not the economic recovery the nation had hoped for. While the economy is growing again, it is growing too slowly to create many jobs or to increase household incomes.

    Given the uneven rebound in the United States, and now signs that the world’s other economic engines are slowing, economists say Americans may confront high unemployment and lackluster growth for some time to come.

    “This is going to be a long slog,” said David H. Resler, the chief United States economist at Nomura Securities International.

    The trade report from the Commerce Department, which showed exports fell in June, prompted economists to sharply reduce their estimates of how fast the economy had been growing this year.

    With the Chinese economy slowing, and European governments tightening their belts to bring down worrisome budget deficits, the fear is that the United States economy will get far less help from overseas than many people had expected.

    Without that lift from abroad, and with domestic spending moribund, the American economy is gradually losing steam. Growth is slowing quarter by quarter. In the final three months of 2009, the economy grew at an annual rate of 5 percent. Growth then slowed to a 3.7 percent pace in the first quarter of 2010, then 2.4 percent in the second quarter.

    But after downward revisions to other economic data like inventories and the export figures, even that 2.4 percent annual rate is now looking too rosy — and may even be as low as 1 percent, some economists say.

  • wbboei

    The comments by Harry Reid come as no surprise. They were preceded by similar comments by Howard Dean in 2008 that the Republican Party is “the white people’s party”. And of course you have the official policy of the DNC under Kaine to racialize this primary. Thus, it is readily apparent that the goal of the Democratic Party under Obama is to shatter this nation along racial lines so they can control it and impose an agenda which is hostile to American values. The question as to what Obama meant by the word “change” is now answered with finality. Consequently, it would be a mistake for Hillary to accept the vice presidency. It would not position her to succeed Obama. It would position her to go down with the ship, plus it would get the people who supported him over her off the hook. When they come calling she will need some good excuse. Meanwhile. the hispanic lobby needs to sit out the 2010 election for Obama. Otherwise they will be taken for granted the same way the takes his African American basis for granted. I still believe the 2012 election will be between Hillary and Gingrich.

    ————————————–
    According to the late White House Budget Director Peter Orzag the rate this year was supposed to have been 3.6%. According to Obama, he has been seeing signs of recovery wherever he looks. According to that logic there should not be a thousand merchant ships at anchor in Singapore harbor–but there are. Could it possibly be the case that the man who the DNC tells us saved us from a depression is and has always been clueless on the economy. Perhaps. But you will be glad to know his handicap went down from 28 to 24 last month, so as they say behind every dark cloud there is always a silver lining. Nevertheless, it is hard to see how that silver lining benefits anyone but Obama, and if we can assume that he cheats in golf like he cheats in politics he does not need the lower handicap to win.

  • Betty

    I just read somewhere else that obama’s approval rating has dropped lower because of fears for the economy. And I couldn’t help but wonder how different things would have been (for the country and for him) if he had waited 8 years and ran after Hillary repaired the mess and had a chance to train him in true community service. It boggles the mind.

  • NewMexicoFan

    When young people ignore experience and rush into leadership positons too soon, they rarely take advice from the experienced. As the job becomes obviously beyond them, they blame everyone else. That is one of the problems with youth, especially when they have been groomed for nothing but success, and have heard nothing but compliments for a long time. They have finally hit the wall of reality, and they don’t know how to react.

    They have not been groomed to sit, wait, and watch. I now doubt that if he had taken VP, he would have learned very much. He would have been too busy campaigning for 8 years.

    Our society has gone from respecting and learning from the last generation, to get the hell out of the way, as I know so much more than you do, and really need no ones help but the young staff around me.

  • Mrs. Smith

    wbb..

    I do not agree with your “C” prediction. Heres why:
    ________________________________

    Obama was chosen by the elites as the next president because he agreed with the elites on their plan to “break” the middle class. The state of our economy is not accidental. It was man-made, anyone thinking otherwise needs to read more and familiarize themselves with incontrovertible facts. Granted, the media did their part in the coverup initially blaming the mortgage brokers and homeowners for the foreclosures but the fact of the matter is… if you don’t have a job, you can’t pay yor mortgage. It is and always was the unholy union and gamesmanship between the Banks and Hedgefunds where derivatives were born and what blew up the economy and began the slide of America’s dream of home ownership.

    It should be apparent by now, the Primary reason Hillary was not the Dem nominee is because she wouldn’t go along with this plan and the reason they want her now is because she can fix the mess made out of the world economy by Soros, Obama and the elites who went along with Soros’ scheme. Soros promised to en-yoke (word?) the public (Americans) forever and a day with an ever invasive increasing Carbon Tax. (a dog and cat tax because they exhale carbons? How about taxing your son’s guinea pig?) He failed, they both failed and made fools of the elites who lost billions of dollars trying to get richer by finding the elusive, forever giving, golden fleece Soros promised was within reach if he was allowed to do his thing.

    Now it all belongs to Hillary because she CAN FIX IT!. Admin has the blessed job of educating the public how this all came about. And how they fell for the goods of epic proportions sold by the bamboozler in chief to get elected. It’s up to us to spread the word and recommend this site… http://www.hillaryis44.org to everyone and pay it forward. People will need the TRUTH to understand how we arrived at where we are today… The only thing that may need a little TLC is their PRIDE… but then again, they should have no fear… they are not alone…

    The Ohio Dem was on this morning criticizing O, mildly. He was talking about jobs being the most important, and that we needed leadership. He did not say he has not been leading. Kuchins (I cannot spell that name) said he has time to turn it around.

    It Will be tough if they don’t have a majority.

  • Mrs. Smith

    To my knowledge, Hillary has not been officially offered a VP position replacing Biden in 2016. Why the argument contains the option “she cannot fix it either” doesn’t compute because the only position that can fix everything that is wrong with America is the #1 position, the presidency.

    The only question I have is… how will Obama be removed before 2016?

  • lil ole grape

    White couple face discrimination probe after ‘refusing to sell Chicago home to black family’

    A white couple are facing a discrimination probe after they allegedly refused to sell their house to a black family because of their race.

    Daniel and Adrienne Sabbia are said to have taken their home off the market even though the £1.1million offer from George Willborn and wife Peytyn was the highest they had received.

    When an investigation began they claimed they changed their mind and wanted to keep their children in their current schools.

    But their estate agent Jeffrey Lowe blew their cover when he told officials that Mr Sabbia had expressed a preference not to sell his home to an African-American, it is said.

    Two months after the row erupted the house in Chicago was quietly relisted by Mr Lowe, with all its furniture, for £1.1million.

    The Willborns have now made a complaint to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Sabbias and Mr Lowe face federal discrimination charges.

    Why are letting that Monica Crowley get away with what she said about Hillary? She says “Clinton’s personal ambition trumps everything including keeping the party together and healing the party? What are Monica Crowley’s credentials that she feels qualified to sit in judgment on our two national treasures, Bill and Hillary? I trust the Clinton’s person ambition and I am grateful for it – their personal ambition – I don’t even know what to say, Lets make a list.
    1. she is ambitious to raise the living conditions of women world wide. As a young woman she stuck her neck out and made a speech is China – didn’t have to but did
    2. She is ambitious to give equal rights to GLBT people everywhere. Marched in gay right parades – didn’t have to but did.

    Does this Monica Crowley have any idea of the heart break 18 million Americans suffered when, through cheating and lawbreaking, obama stole the our right as democrats to the nominee of our choice from us? And in doing so stole true health care reform from us, stole financial reform from us, stole our children’s future, and possible even our republic from us?

    I do not agree with your “C” prediction. Heres why:
    —————————————————
    Mrs. Smith, I was not making a prediction, now was I trying to understand why they chose Obama over Hillary before. I agree with your analysis as to why they chose Hillary, as you know. Likewise she and Bill are the only ones on the current political stage who have the world reputation for leadership, and it will take leadership–years of it to work our way out of this mess. The problem is global, and that means we cannot rely on China to pull our chestnuts out of the fire, which is what Obama was hoping to do. They will have their own domestic problems if the factories shut down.

    The question I was addressing was different: why are those elites reaching out for Hillary now, as the consequences of their improvident decision become manifest to the world. Of all possible times, why now. I make an assumption about these people which may or not be valid, but there is plenty of current evidence to support it. I assume they are avaricious people who do not care about the country or its traditions, they are pushing their toxic agenda at the worst possible time in the worst possible way, and now it is backfiring. In those circumstances, they may want somebody who can solve the problem, but just as much they do not want to be blamed for selecting a president who is making the cure worse than the disease.

  • Mrs. Smith

    ———————————————————————-
    You are right. That was a ridiculous statement. Evidently, she did not see Hillary’s speech at the Convention or travel with her on the campaign trail during the general election. I think she subordinated personal ambition to keeping the party together. But it could never have succeeded because the Clinton coalition and the Obama coalition are like oil and water. Furthermore, the Obama agenda cannot be reconciled with the agenda of traditional democrats. Now interestingly, the Clinton coalition is aging but remains an army in winter, and the Obama coalition is fraying at the edges, The Kennedy coalition is gone pretty much for lack of a credible successor, and Kennedy’s dream that Obama would be its new leader has proven to be a fantasy. Crowley is simply repeating the old line that Hillary was ambitious. Name me one successful politician who is not.

    Love Hillbuzz although don’t always agree. Fact is they are a voice in the wilderness. Dems thought they owned gays. Bambi has done nothing and even cuddles up to individuals who openly profess hate.
    I am a gay man I have 5 siblings two parents 15 aunts and uncles tens of cousins, Many friends and co-workers. If the tea party would announce something about not giving a shit about what happened in a bedroom I would jump on the band wagon. Oddly I perceive the tea party movement as being anti gay rights.

    My next door neighbor is an office assistant her husband is a boilermaker. We rarely talk unless it is buying pizzas or cookies that her children sell. I had HRC yard signs and then McPalin after the travesty in Denver.
    Two days ago I was out in the backyard taking pictures of the junk accumulated in the basement to sell on craigslist. We never ever speak except concern about the rugrats, but she went all kinds of crazy bout the mosque. She knows I lived there for twenty years but didn’t seem to recognize that. She was just furious and took time out of her day to let someone else know. uncharacteristically i kept my mouth shut. She is part of a union household but I’d lay money on her voting republican.

    Revenge is a dish best served cold and what I like best about all this is the same elites who spent vast sums of money telling the public that Hillary was too ambitious, to divisive, and too polarizing to lead the is country, and that Barack was brilliant, inspirational and who needs experience when you have got style is the right man at the right moment with the right message, are now crawling back to the Clintons and begging her to bail out their shlimil. It is bad. How bad. Bad enough that it could imperil the book deal that Hummel and Howe (four flushers of the last diamond jim brady era), I mean Halperin and Halprin have riding on a successful Obama bad enough. And, bad enough that Joe Klein has taken to writing about things he knows nothing about like Pakistan, to burnish his dubious credentials at the Council. How do they let him in the door?

    From Telegraph

    http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/nilegardiner/100050412/the-stunning-decline-of-barack-obama-10-key-reasons-why-the-obama-presidency-is-in-meltdown/

    10. Obama doesn’t believe in American greatness

    Barack Obama has made it clear that he doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, and has made apologising for his country into an art form. In a speech to the United Nations last September he stated that “no one nation can or should try to dominate another nation. No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed. No balance of power among nations will hold.” It is difficult to see how a US president who holds these views and does not even accept America’s greatness in history can actually lead the world’s only superpower with force and conviction.

    There is a distinctly Titanic-like feel to the Obama presidency and it’s not hard to see why. The most left-wing president in modern American history has tried to force a highly interventionist, government-driven agenda that runs counter to the principles of free enterprise, individual freedom, and limited government that have made the United States the greatest power in the world, and the freest nation on earth.

    This, combined with weak leadership both at home and abroad against the backdrop of tremendous economic uncertainty in an increasingly dangerous world, has contributed to a spectacular political collapse for a president once thought to be invincible. America at its core remains a deeply conservative nation, which cherishes its traditions and founding principles. President Obama is increasingly out of step with the American people, by advancing policies that undermine the United States as a global power, while undercutting America’s deep-seated love for freedom.

    Tunku generally writes with republican pov but this article is largely positive for Hillary and shows why (from purely a strategy pov) Hillary is in a position to save Obama’s ass. We know Hillary could save a lot of losers not just Obama. But as his VP, no thanks.

    Good points about the Colorado voting. I live in Colorado and really wonder who it was who voted for Obama. The newscasts were telling people you can declare your Party affiliation at the polls. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Republicans, not only outnumbered the Democrats at the polls, but maybe sent significant crossover voters to vote for the weaker Democratic candidate, Bennet. I changed my affiliation from independent to Democrat so I could vote for Romanoff and the area where I live, which is about 40% HIspanic, had Romanoff lawn posters outnumbering Bennet about 10 to 1. I don’t think Hispanics buy into BS very readily, quite the contrary,…and Bennet is full of it.

    As it was once explained to me, the prerequisite to successful campaigning is identifying some devil to rally your troops against so they will support you. That is a dreary formulation perhaps, since the proper objective of campaigning is or at least should be to present a substantive agenda which people can buy into rather than herding them like cattle through cynical appeals to primitive instinct.

    There was once a time, when liberal elites made this argument against Republicans. For example, they railed against the Willie Horton ad which they claimed had alot to do with sinking Dukakis. They claimed that the successors to Lee Atwater created a racial devil to rally white people against. The Republicans argued that it was not race that they were decrying but crime and the democratic candidates ACLU credentials. To my mind the connection between race and crime was purposeful, not accidental. But I also believe Dukakis was his own worst enemy and that little Patton in a tank routine was did at least as much damage to his candidacy. I like Susan Estrich but selling him to Jacksonian America was a bridge too far.

    Today, the Democratic Party under Obama is playing the same game. Their devil is the Republican Party and no less white people. Those who contend otherwise do not understand the logical and probable consequences of their statements. Frankly, it is far less subtle than what the Republicans were doing. For example, when they say, as Dean did, that the Republican Party is the party of white people; when they say as a leader of the South Carolina party did that blacks should never vote for a white democrat; when they say, as Harry Reid did, that he could not understand how any hispanic could be a republican; and when tell a black audience in Texas that their opponent is a “master” like democrat Bill White did; and when you call the Tea Party movement which stands for the constitution and fiscal responsibility white racist to the core, like Chris Van Hollen does, then I say the game is obvious. We have met the devil and he is white.

    The Republican explanation for this is that the Democrats have nothing else to campaign on. Hence they are forced to engage in ad hominum attack and play the race card. Lawyers have an old saying which goes like this. When the law is on your side argue the law. When the facts are on your side argue the facts. When neither the law or the facts are on your side, pound the table. Ergo, they are simply using the race card to pound the table. At a tactical level that explanation makes some sense perhaps. But at a strategic level it misses the boat entirely.

    If I were to blame anyone for this descent into racism which is fracturing this country. I would put 90% of the blame on Donna Brazile. The reason I say that is because she is a prominent voice in the media and in the black community. She was heavily involved in playing the race card against the Clintons. But above all, she was the one who decried that the FDR coalition was kaput and the new coalitiion would consist of blacks youth and wealthy liberals. That formulation puts white people either in the back of the bus or on the street. And the problem with that racist formulation is it sets you on a track where you are forced to play the race card to hold your constituency together. I suspect Bartel Bulls would agree with me. This is not equal justice under the law. And it widens and deepens the fault lines in our society.

    Time was when democrats made this argument against Republicans for the Willie Horton ad which they claimed tanked Dukakasis, but his little Patton routine in the tank did not help him much either. The point I guess is that

    is best for the country. But experience has shown that negative campaigning is done because it works, the same way collective hysteria trumps collective wisdom.

    Polling Round up

    ……………………………………….

    The first Rasmussen Reports post-primary telephone survey of Likely Voters in Colorado shows a close U.S. Senate race between Republican challenger Ken Buck and incumbent Democratic Senator Michael Bennet.

    Buck attracts 46% support, while Bennet picks up 41% of the vote. Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and seven percent (7%) remain undecided.

    ……………………………………….

    Quinn plummets.

    Republican Bill Brady remains ahead of embattled Democratic Governor Pat Quinn in Illinois’ gubernatorial race.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Brady picking up 48% support, his best showing to date, while Quinn earns 35% of the vote. Six percent (6%) favor some other candidate, but 12% are undecided at this point.

    ……………………………………………………….

    The race between Republican Congressman Roy Blunt and Democrat Robin Carnahan in Missouri’s U.S. Senate race is little changed after both candidates easily won their party primaries last week.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Missouri Voters shows Blunt with 50% support, while Carnahan earns 43% of the vote.

    Two weeks ago, Blunt posted a 49% to 43% lead over Carnahan, Missouri’s current secretary of state. Blunt has run slightly ahead of Carnahan in surveys all year, with support ranging from 45% to 50%. She, in turn, has picked up 41% to 45% of the vote in those same surveys.

    …………………………………………………….

    Incumbent Democrat Russ Feingold and his top Republican challenger, Ron Johnson, are essentially tied again this month in Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Wisconsin Voters shows Johnson with 47% support and Feingold picking up 46% of the vote. Two percent (2%) prefer another candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

    He’s not the most left wing. That’s ridiculous. If he was so left wing, why the hell is it you think the left wing is so angry at him? Don’t blame a left leaning philosophy for Obama. It makes no sense. Why the hell are the ranks of millionaires swelling along with the ranks of the poor, if he is left wing? That doesn’t make any sense. You all were so worried about Obama redistributing wealth toward the poor, well, that hasn’t happened at all. The opposite is true. Explain to me how that is left wing. He passed a republican health plan, a republican “stimulus”, a republican financial reform plan, that’s it! Where is the left wing in that? The bank bailouts were not even initiated by him. That was Bush. Again, where is the left wing part? He choose to listen to Larry Summers over Christine Romer, again where is the left wing? He won’t even send down immigration legislation that George W Bush presented to Congress? Where’s the left wing? He stacked his deficit commission with guys who want to get rid of social security. Where’s the left wing? He cut Medicare for crissakes, where’s the left wing? He is an INCOMPETENT! That’s not a left leaning trait.

    —————————————————————–
    There was definitely cross over in 2008. You say it may have happened again today. That is an intriguing theory. Did they do any hypothetical match ups between the two candidates against the Republican opponent? If so and if those polls showed Bennet as losing and his opponent as winning then that would provide a clear motive for cross over. And even if there are no public polls you can be sure the Republicans have internals–or perhaps something on Bennett. Or perhaps they simply are confident in their ability to tar him as an Obama democrat, which ties in with their national campaign. Short of that, your antecdotal evidence of sineage is interesting and should be followed up on.

    There is a distinctly Titanic-like feel to the Obama presidency and it’s not hard to see why. The most left-wing president in modern American history has tried to force a highly interventionist, government-driven agenda that runs counter to the principles of free enterprise, individual freedom, and limited government that have made the United States the greatest power in the world, and the freest nation on earth.

    The Republicans won’t last either. They actually are less popular now than they have been in 16 years. The Dems will be discharged because they failed to fix the economy. Then the Republicans will be discharged because they will continue more of the same. Neither of these Parties is working for regular Americans anymore. The country is not going to turn hard right. That’s a luxury most Americans can no longer afford. They are more apt to turn to the streets eventually.

    Guess that Spanish trip was worth it, Mo. lowest approval rating for a first lady ever, i believe.

    The number of Americans who have a positive opinion of First Lady Michelle Obama has fallen in the last 16 months, according to the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. In April, 2009, 64 percent of those surveyed by the Journal/NBC said they had a positive impression of Mrs. Obama; today, the number is 50 percent. That 50 percent personal approval is just slightly above President Obama’s personal approval figure, which stands at 46 percent in the new poll.

    The specific survey question asked respondents to rate their feelings about Mrs. Obama “as very positive, somewhat positive, neutral, somewhat negative, or very negative.” The first lady’s rating, a combination of the very positive and somewhat positive answers, has fallen from 64 percent in April ’09 to 55 percent in January 2010 to 50 percent today.

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/blogs/beltway-confidential/Michelle-Obama-popularity-falls-100520134.html
    …………………………….

    i think its actually the lowest of all time

    http://www.gallup.com/poll/21370/laura-bush-approval-ratings-among-best-first-ladies.aspx

    For example, Hillary Rodham Clinton averaged a 64% approval rating while she was first lady, ranging from a low of 54% in January 1995, to a high of 80% in February 1999.

    Other first ladies’ approval ratings tended to be in the 50% range; these lower ratings were due in part to the fact that many Americans did not have opinions of first ladies when asked to rate them. Nancy Reagan had a 53% approval rating in May 1988, with 31% disapproving and 16% having no opinion. In April 1987, and December 1981, her approval ratings were 58% and 57%, respectively. Rosalynn Carter had a 59% approval rating the one time she was rated in August 1979. Pat Nixon had a 54% approval rating in a June 1969, poll. Gallup also asked about Eleanor Roosevelt twice during Franklin Roosevelt’s administration. She received a 67% approval rating in 1938, and a 68% rating in 1940.

    It is not uncommon for first ladies to have higher approval ratings than those of their husbands, likely because the husbands’ roles are more political and controversial in nature versus a more ceremonial role for the first ladies. Hillary Clinton’s 64% approval average compares with Bill Clinton’s 55% average rating while in office. When Rosalynn Carter had a 59% approval rating in 1979, her husband Jimmy Carter was at 32%. The current president’s 43% rating compares with his wife’s 82%.

    How Will Obama Reshuffle His National-Security Team?

    By Michael Crowley Thursday, Aug. 12, 2010

    As the White House gears up for the midterm elections, talk is turning to which key players may look to depart after Nov. 2. One of the earliest to exit could be the National Security Adviser, Jim Jones. Obama’s pick of a retired Marine general with Republican ties for the job was hailed as a shrewd choice. But from the start, Jones has been an awkward fit — laconic in style and less close to the President personally than some more junior aides. With much of the sleeves-rolled coordinating work handled by his deputy, Tom Donilon, Jones has become a kind of foreign policy adviser and emissary for the President, making frequent trips abroad to consult with allies.

    Who might succeed Jones? Donilon would be a natural choice, though his background is as much in politics as foreign policy. Hillary Clinton’s State Department deputy, James Steinberg, was an original candidate for the job and already served as National Security Council deputy under Bill Clinton. Recently, another candidate has surfaced: General James Cartwright, the well-regarded vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who, like Jones, is also a Marine. (Known to friends as “Hoss,” Cartwright has reportedly impressed Obama in face-to-face meetings.)

    A Jones departure might be just part of a shake-up for Obama’s national-security team this fall. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has made no secret of his longing to leave Washington and has already accepted at least one Obama entreaty to stick around. A Gates exit would raise even more interesting casting questions — including the real possibility that Obama might have a splashy replacement in mind: Hillary Clinton.

    Oh, and obama is to the right of Ronald Reagan. You cannot serve corporate America and be a lefty. Anyone who says something as stupid as identifying Obama as anything but a guy probably in the same political arena as Limbaugh is not worth listening.

    Obama is a right winger and he is following very conservative, authoritarian, rightwing policies. A lefty would have given us health care similar to what they have in Canada. Obama served up healthcare whose only mandate is on the American people to turn over a slice of their monthly income to PRIVATE insurance – nothin’ liberal about that. He bailed out banks, rather than homeowners – nothin’ liberal about that. He is continuing Bush’s constitution shredding policies as it relates to anti-terrorist activities and he has actually moved right of Cheney by claiming the right to decide that American citizens can be assassinated, and denied even legal recourse – got that? Obama can sign your death warrant, with no trial whatsoever, and deny you the right to political representation – that’s as far from liberal as it gets. His administration compared gay marriage to child molesting and incest – farther right than any claim Bush made. And he has assaulted women’s right to abortion care with a success that no Republican has seen. That’s just off the top of my head.

    Obama is the most right wing president we’ve seen in over 100 years.

    Carly Fiorina Moves to a 5 pt. Lead over Dem. Barbara Boxer in California (CBS5/SurveyUSA)

    A new CBS5/SurveyUSA Poll shows Republican Carly Fiorina now with a 5-point lead over incumbent Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer in the California Senate Race.

    California Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina has increased her lead over Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer to five percentage points according to a new CBS 5 KPIX-TV poll released Thursday, which also shows gubernatorial candidates Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman in a dead heat.

    The CBS 5 poll, conducted by the research firm SurveyUSA, showed Fiorina edging Boxer 47 percent to 42 percent, compared to a CBS 5 poll one month ago showing Fiorina over Boxer 47 to 45 percent.

    The poll results indicated Fiorina’s support was essentially unchanged among men and women, young and old, white and Hispanic while Boxer had lost small ground among men, younger voters, and independents.

    Well, as a conservative independent, I’m not really surprised. Anybody with any real common sense could smell the dreck Obeyme was selling a mile away. The only reason Latinos are the least bit attracted to Dims is because of their big Amnesty propaganda. I find it insulting how many Latinos think breaking another country’s laws somehow entitles them to suck onto the larger American social welfare tit. Dims are okay with that. The only problem is that Dims who support amnesty and “immigrant rights” don’t quite understand that Americans are losing their jobs to illegals which only drives the economy further into the ditch.

    Then there’s this tidbit of wisdom:

    “Oh, and obama is to the right of Ronald Reagan. You cannot serve corporate America and be a lefty. Anyone who says something as stupid as identifying Obama as anything but a guy probably in the same political arena as Limbaugh is not worth listening. ”

    Really… reality can be your friend, basement angel, if you just embrace it. Do you really think someone who forcing national health care mandates down the throats of Americans is the “right of Ronald Reagan?” Somebody is living in denial.

    “Obama is a right winger and he is following very conservative, authoritarian, rightwing policies. A lefty would have given us health care similar to what they have in Canada.

    Please… more excuse making. More pathetic attempts to equate two completely DIFFERENT presidents. Obeyme and Bush the same? Uh huh. I guess maybe when it comes to bailing out Big Business and overspending us into debt we can never overcome. You don’t know what you’re talking about. So, we should really be like Canada? Really? Are you for real?

    There are a ton of loop holes to abortion in the health care monstrosity posing as health care reform. Then, again, there is no such thing as abortion “rights.” Then againt, leftists have no respect for anybody but themselves. Killing the helpless, the old, and the unborn is what makes people like you so much more “evolved” than the rest of us.

    I’m sorry, but I don’t approve of gay marriage and never will. There are some standards that this country should uphold and the idea of man-woman marriage should be preserved, not undermine by the likes of you or the Dem-Socialists in power. Furthermore, you don’t have any clue what the military faces. If it were up to you and the other leftists you’d shut down the Pentagon in a heartbeat and take away the pensions of military retirees so that you can give more kickbacks to the unions, sorta what Obeyme is doing now with the teacher and public employee unions. I guess you don’t read the papers that the DOD is gutting people in the military, kicking them out because they had the audacity to serve less than 14 years or were in the wrong career field. You, my dear, have no idea the true extent of the damage that Obeyme is doing, not only to the country, but our military.

    “Obama is the most right wing president we’ve seen in over 100 years.”

    You wish. That way, you can console yourself that that’s why he’s so awful. No, he’s awful because he’s a poser. Somebody who’s never had a real job or real trackable life. He’s been propped up his entire life by rich, radical benefactors who’ve protected him and used him for a larger agenda.

    You’re just not happy we’re not a socialist paradise like Canada. Healthcare will never be “free.” It’s a commodity like everything else. I’m sorry he isn’t left enough for you, but being as left as Obeyme is now… he’s done enough damage.

    Wise up.

    “Where do they come up with ‘hillary fans want her to run with Obama’??????”

    They want to neutralize her: to keep her from challenging him and to weaken and discredit her by forcing her to support his policies (the VP’s job).

    Mrs. Smith: You said, “It should be apparent by now, the Primary reason Hillary was not the Dem nominee is because she wouldn’t go along with this plan and the reason they want her now is because she can fix the mess made out of the world economy by Soros, Obama and the elites who went along with Soros’ scheme.” I disagree. The plan, to wring out the middle class, is proceeding splendidly. Big corporations and the top 1% have never done better. Why would they want her to “fix” it?

    No, they want her sidelined.

    Thank you. I couldn’t say it better myself. Many Americans are not only historically illiterate (BA) but also politically illiterate (BA). It’s really sad. As a former teacher, I’ve seen how this destructive process starts. We’ve been denying as a country for years that we’re a constitutional republic, not a democracy. We’ve stopped teaching about political beliefs such as Communism, Socialism (which we’re pretty much resemble as a country now), and Fascism.

    I don’t understand how the seemingly most educated in this country, educated liberals, seem to confuse political philosophies. I will agree that both political parties really are beginning to merge into Socialism and Socialism Lite. Or, Dim and Dim Lite. I no longer trust either.

    If we’re going to take this country back, learn from the mess that’s happened to our country over the past 30 years, we need to teach our kids history, politics, and basic financial skills. Or we’re doomed.

    Then again, when you’ve people like BA saying that Obeyme is a Bush clone I want to laugh. This is the same creep (Obeyme) who doesn’t give a shit about our military. Just ask military people what it’s like to serve under him.

    If we don’t wise up to what both parties are doing… we’re headed for another Civil War. And it will be a lot worse than the first one.

    I completely agree!
    The working class isn’t stupid like the rich, positions think.
    You have to have lots of money to run and win a big election, which most of us don’t have.
    That being said, the American revolution was common folk getting pist at too much tax and no representation…it is in our blood to know when enough is enough!
    That time is already here.

    Blowme,

    You’re still hallucinating. Obama is serving corporate power. That’s the right wing. The left serves ordinary people and nothing Obama does benefits the middle class.

    Obama is rightwing – whether you can deal with it or not. When he starts taking power and money away from the financial elite and begins to distributing it to the middle and lower class, then you can talk about him as a lefty. But his policies consistently funnel money upward.

    The Dems own him because he ran on their party. The liberals own him, god help us, because they elected him. But the conservatives own him as well because he is enacting their policies, whether they oppose him or not.

    There isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between Bush and Obama.

    OH Brother, Limbaugh is saying there’s no oil left from the spill. Thousands of dead fish hit New Jersey and Rush is lying for the oil companies. This is not going to make the masses like the republicans any better.

    Yup, for any disenfranchised Dem that thinks the Rethugs are the saviors longterm, they have to remember that tigers do not change their stripes. Attacking Iraq wasn’t about WMD, and hardly about Saddam, it was more about Oil in the region. (Saddam is no worse than the leaders or Iran nor N. Korea, but American didn’t attack them.)

    basement angel,

    Leftists serve corporate America all of the time. There are plenty of rich, white, elitist leftists that live a opulant lifestyle, and parrot leftist dogma while doing so. Why is that any way? Live as I say, not as I do is hypocrisy, but it happens all of the time. Doesn’t someone like Mr. Soros, an arguably leftist man, help prove your comment false? He might not be in government, but he is heavily involved in what happens in government.

    sirmrks: thanks for posting the link. I saw an interview with Zogby yesterday, and he suggest that the Republican nominee will be none of the people you currently see on the stage. One of the names he threw up was Governor Christie, who I really like just because he is a New York type (from New Jersey) with an irreverent sense of humor and wonderful ability to make our intellectual betters in big media wish they had never asked the question. Executive experience may not be a dirty word to them as it was to so many dims in 2008 who had visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads.

    Amen.
    We were discussing General Pershing today at home; we wondered how General Pershing would handle the situation today. I do know that his mantra was… in order to defeat the enemy, you must think like the enemy.

    BA makes me dizzy and nauseous about left wing is right wing, and up is down. I am beginning to think that it is a combination of:
    -frame the language; define the words
    -make the enemies strengths into weakness; define up as down, left as right
    -get in the face of those who disagree
    -make it personal and call them names or demean them
