We’re dredging from our comments section for this article. Dorothy Parker is today’s inspiration – “If you don’t have anything nice to say… sit by me.”
This coming week is going to be very busy so consider this a break before the storm. Today is gossip, gossip, gossip, with just a touch of news. Extra credit for those who figure out how these gossip items are linked. Hint: misogyny and fear and depression are a terrible thing to witness. Now the dish:
Let’s start by trashing our own. FoxNews reports Hillary had a facelift:
“Did she or didn’t she? The former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was looking awfully “rested” during her meeting with Libyan Transitional Council chairman Mustafa Abdel Jalil earlier this month. This got us wondering, did she have her eyes done? Maybe a little lift? While we doubt she’s had the time, her skin looks much smoother in the photo on the right taken September 1, 2011, as opposed to the photo on the left from 2006. We want to know what you think!”
Having trashed our own, it’s only fair to pick the lint from our favorite Star Wars action figure:
“Michelle’s Insults Drive Hillary to Collapse
Hillary Clinton suffered an alarming secret breakdown after a bitter clash with First Lady Michelle Obama, and now Bill’s wife is threatening to quit her Secretary of State post. You can read all about Michelle’s bitter insults that have touched off a firestorm behind White House walls. It’s all in this week’s GLOBE.”
What very famous Hollywood actor said this about the Boob?: “He might be just a little bit too regular to be the president of the United States ’cause he’s a young guy, he likes to play basketball, and I’ve noticed that he has a Chicago walk.”
Sarah Palin shares a major trait with Barack Obama’s mother????? (Which reminds us of another Dorothy Parker quote “That woman speaks eight languages and can’t say “no” in any of them.” But we digress.) As reported by the New York Times, in a new book it is reported that Sarah Palin has a “fetish for black men”. The same book reports Sarah Palin is a racist.
Who is the person who hurts Obama the most when he goes on TV?
Who, according to those that hate this website, is buying “six pantsuits”?
And this final but rather extensive report of a Boob in decline:
“Is President Obama Depressed?
According to Gawker, the New York Times is putting together a piece that suggests President Obama may have depression and no longer finds pleasure in his job. The New York Times is not commenting on the report, but The Five tackled the subject on today’s show.
Greg Gutfeld says that if this story is real, the president’s depression is due to the fact that he was shielded for so long by an adoring media and he didn’t build up an immunity to hard knocks.
Bob Beckel argues the opposite, saying that if depression is the result of being dumped on, then Obama should be in an insane asylum after all of the criticism he’s received.
Finally, Dana Perino acknowledges that while the presidency is a tough job, the press may be presenting this kind of story so that they can later build Obama back up.
Here is the original Gawker story:
“Is Barack Obama Depressed?
Wouldn’t you be? Barack Obama is at the nadir of his political popularity and effectiveness. He has been maneuvered into an economic corner of 9%-plus unemployment by a relentlessly nihilistic Congress. His achievements—killing bin Laden, saving the auto industry at negligible cost—are written off as flukes. Plus all this 9/11 anniversary stuff! We hear the New York Times is looking into whether it’s all starting to get to him—like, clinically.
We’re told by a source inside the Times that the paper is preparing a story arguing that Obama no longer finds joy in the political back-and-forth, has seemed increasingly listless to associates, and is generally exhibiting the litany of signs that late-night cable commercials will tell you add up to depression. Or maybe Low T.
Either way, the investigation was described to us as taking seriously the notion that Obama may be suffering from a depressive episode. Of course, absent a telltale Wellbutrin prescription or testimony from the man himself, it’s really impossible to achieve a reliable diagnosis. And a story like “Obama Appears to Suffer From Depression” can be easily downgraded to “Political Travails Begin to Take Personal Toll on Obama.” So the story in question, if it ever comes out, may not end up supporting the depression thesis. But rest assured: There are people at the Times who, based on the paper’s reporting, believe Obama is depressed—the kind of depression where, if he weren’t the president of the United States, he wouldn’t be getting out of bed in the morning.“
Let’s start with the silly. The answer to the Hollywood question is Morgan Freeman. Morgan Freeman is not aware that even Barack Obama’s walk is fake. When Obama ran against former Black Panther now Congressman Bobby Rush, Rush mocked Obama’s blackness and ever since then Obama has been pulling an okie doke looking for his inner stereotype of being black and a man. Freeman intuits that Obama is simply not a good fit for a job that requires experience and ability. Freeman loves Obama but even Shawshank won’t redeem the Boob from Chicago.
The Hollywood Reporter, clues us in that Freeman is not alone. A lot of Hollywood realizes Obama is a corrupt treacherous Boob:
“Disappointed Hollywood Giving Obama Cold Shoulder
As the 2012 election fund-raising cycle heats up, the onetime darling is finding far less enthusiasm from the showbiz donors who tell THR what went wrong.
At this point in the previous presidential election cycle, Barack Obama was a Hollywood heartthrob. The entertainment industry’s ardent Democratic activists couldn’t dig deep enough into their wallets to finance his ambitious run for the Oval Office.
Today, the industry remains with the president, but the disenchantment is increasingly palpable, and even devoted Democrats are approaching his re-election campaign with all the enthusiasm of a studio contractually obligated to finance a dubious sequel.”
Obama 2012 = Ishtar II
Black man chasing, racist, Sarah Palin? Even the New York Times review of the Joe McGinniss trash bin book is denouncing this filth. McGinniss is a creep and no one should defend him. Left Talk losers will enjoy trashing Palin but those are the people who will scream if anything bad is written about evil mass killer Tim McVeigh. Did you hear Sarah Palin is not pretty?
The trash bin political reporter at the Miami Herald was forced to defend himself to beat reporter Armando Salguero over the Palin story:
“Miami Herald Dolphins beat reporter Armando Salguero is unhappy with his paper’s decision to post a story about an alleged 1987 fling between Sarah Palin and former Miami Heat player Glen Rice when he was a college player and Palin a TV sports anchor in Alaska. Salguero told colleagues in an email:
Do we know this story to be TRUE? Are we certain it is TRUE because we’ve done the work or have a reasonable certainty that is TRUE?
Did anyone actually try to confirm this story before giving it Herald front page credibility? Did anyone call Glenn Rice to get independent confirmation? He lives in Miami, you know.
Is it now OK to repeat any “report” from the National Enquirer on the front page of the Herald’s website without actually reporting even one fact independently? The blog calls The Enquirer’s sources “solid.” …
If this Rice story, unconfirmed and unreported by us, can be published on our site, do the alien stories not meet the same standards?
Herald political reporter Marc Caputo responded a short time later:
To answer your question: I don’t think we “know” this story about Palin to be true. We do know it has been reported and it is a topic of political conversation. So we have displayed what we “know” so far. This is common in newsrooms. Even in your department, sports. …
I find it curious you didn’t raise this as a newsroom wide-issue at the time, but I digress somewhat.
I do think this is different from an alien story. Yes, it appears to be from/tied to the Enquirer, which also broke the John Edwards baby-story. I remember at the time that we posted this information as well. Edwards, as you know, is a Democrat.
I find it curious you didn’t raise this as a newsroom wide-issue at the time, but I digress somewhat.
Of course, the Edwards story was buried by Big Media when it mattered – just before the primaries began in 2008 – just like the JournoListers intentionally buried the Jeremiah Wright story during the primaries to help Obama against Hillary. It was only when photographs of Edwards running from photographers and hiding in a toilet that Big Media decided to tell readers the facts.
Maybe the Miami Herald will publish the “Michelle’s bitter insults” story on its front page too. After all, there are a lot of reasons for Michelle Obama to be furious with Hillary. For one, Hillary won’t tell Michelle who her surgeon is. Two, Hillary won’t allow Michelle to pilfer her garage looking for those fashion forward “accessories” Michelle loves to inflict on the public eye.
Speaking of Hillary Clinton, does this look like a woman who needs surgery?:
Au contraire Chewbacca. Hillary is positively glowing. Obama is depressed because his flim-flams and corruptions are catching up to him. His “racist” charges against Hillary are no longer believed. The Boob is depressed for very good reasons – he is a boob, and Hillary blossoms wherever she is planted:
“She lost the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, but over a third of Americans said the U.S. would be better off now if Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were president, according to a new poll. [snip]
A quarter of respondents held similar wishful thoughts in a July poll.” [snip]
When asked who they would vote for in 2012, 29 percent said they would definitely vote for Obama, 43 percent said they would definitely vote for another candidate and 21 percent said they would consider voting for another candidate.”
Smart Republican/conservative websites see the danger of Hillary nostalgia peaking and the popular Hillary becomes the nominee. If you want to know why all these silly surgery stories and other little carps are now being published, it is because the rise of Hillary Clinton threatens and some are already mobilizing to shut it down. As HotAir writes:
“At least, Barack Obama has to hope it’s peaking, rather than continuing to build. Bloomberg headlines the poll results with an explicit slam at Obama: “Clinton Popularity Prompts Buyer’s Remorse.” So far, the numbers aren’t overwhelming, but they are growing: [snip]
The finding in the latest Bloomberg National Poll shows a higher level of wishful thinking about a Hillary Clinton presidency than when a similar question was asked in July 2010. Then, a quarter of Americans held such a view.
How nostalgic have we gotten for the Clintons? (And doesn’t seeing that in writing seem a little … disturbing?) [snip]
However, this kind of nostalgia could prove a potent political force, especially if Democrats decide that Obama simply cannot win a second term and will do a lot of damage to down-ticket races in 2012. There is no way Hillary will run a primary campaign against Obama, and we’re rapidly running out of time for any Democrat to run a realistic campaign to knock him off of the 2012 general-election ballot. But if Obama surprises people and pulls out on his own — as John Fund speculated yesterday and I speculated last month — a Hillary run ceases being bad news for Obama and starts becoming a Republican nightmare:
But when Hillary nostalgia starts becoming a bigger cultural phenomenon and Obama’s polls keep sliding into Bush territory, those low probabilities might have to get adjusted upward.”
White House paid for polls are already indicating that the probabilities “have to get adjusted upward.” In “Obama must-win Nevada:
“One Nevada Democratic Party insider offered this tip for candidates running for public office in 2012: “Don’t get your picture taken with President Obama,” he said.”
In Chicago, the advice to Obama is “Get Out”:
“For Barack Obama, it’s more like midnight in a coal mine. [snip]
The vultures are starting to circle. Former White House spokesman Bill Burton said that unless Obama can rally the Democratic base, which is disillusioned with him, “it’s going to be impossible for the president to win.” Democratic consultant James Carville had one word of advice for Obama: “Panic.”
But there is good news for the president. I checked the Constitution, and he is under no compulsion to run for re-election. He can scrap the campaign, bag the fundraising calls and never watch another Republican debate as long as he’s willing to vacate the premises by Jan. 20, 2013.
That might be the sensible thing to do. It’s hard for a president to win a second term when unemployment is painfully high. If the economy were in full rebound mode, Obama might win anyway. But it isn’t, and it may fall into a second recession — in which case voters will decide his middle name is Hoover, not Hussein. Why not leave of his own volition instead of waiting to get the ax? [snip]
In the event he wins, Obama could find himself with Republicans in control of both houses of Congress. Then he will long for the good old days of 2011. [snip]
He could slake this thirst by stepping aside and taking the blame. Then someone less reviled could replace him at the top of the ticket.
The ideal candidate would be a figure of stature and ability who can’t be blamed for the economy. That person should not be a member of Congress, since it has an even lower approval rating than the president’s.
It would also help to be conspicuously associated with prosperity. Given Obama’s reputation for being too quick to compromise, a reputation for toughness would be an asset.
As it happens, there is someone at hand who fits this description: Hillary Clinton.“
Dump Obama or Die. Where have we heard that before? Consider, this is not Fox News, this is not HotAir, this is not Michelle Malkin, this is not Free Republic and it’s not midnight at the oasis. It’s Steve Chapman of the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board who says it is time for Obama to withdraw from 2012. Cue HotAir:
“I’ve said repeatedly that I think a withdrawal by Obama is a low-probability event at best, and I still believe it to be a long shot. However, when the home-town papers are starting to make the call for retirement, it’s maybe not quite as much of a long shot as before.”
Ya think??? Consider the tsunami of Hillary Clinton stories recently. From still shilling and lovin’ Obama, Politico:
“As Obama dips, Clinton nostalgia rises
Just as Barack Obama’s approval ratings crater, here come the Clintons: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was just voted the most popular political figure in the country, and Bill Clinton, the never-reticent ex-president, will reclaim the world stage this weekend and dominate the Sunday talk shows. [snip]
Some Democrats believe that Clinton’s emergence makes Obama look even worse at the end of a week in which a Bloomberg News poll found his approval rating on the economy has dropped to 33 percent.
CNN ran the headline “Obama regrets and Clinton fantasies,” during a Friday afternoon segment that covered another Bloomberg poll showing that 81 percent of those surveyed believe the country would be in the same shape or better off if the secretary of state were president. Only 13 percent said the country would be worse off with Hillary Clinton at the helm.”
Consider, all our articles detailing that Obama’s miserable job approval ratings would eventually coincide with his personal approval ratings:
“For the first time, more Americans have an unfavorable opinion of President Obama than have a favorable opinion of him, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll released late Friday, an indication that dissatisfaction with the president’s job performance and the direction of the country is dragging down how Americans view Obama personally.
Just 39 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of Obama, while 42 percent view him unfavorably. In January of this year, 40 percent had a favorable image of Obama, and 34 percent had an unfavorable opinion. In January 2009, as he was inaugurated, 60 percent of Americans had a favorable opinion of him.
While the president’s approval rating — which is down to 43 percent in the new poll, an all-time low — is an important indicator of his re-election standing, the high regard Americans felt for Obama personally was a sign that Americans hadn’t yet given up on his presidency.”
So does this mean Americans have now finally given up on the Boob? You betcha!
“Looking back, I wonder if she would have been a stronger leader, knowing the games and the politics and all that goes on,” said Susan Dunlop, 50, a homemaker in New Port Richey, Florida. “I don’t think she would have bent as much.”
The poll reports that 44 percent of Tea Party supporters “say the U.S. would be better off with Hillary Clinton as president, even though 59 percent of those respondents have an unfavorable impression of her.”
“She’s a more stable person who gets results,” said Joseph Cherney, 67, a retired Republican automotive purchasing worker from Mineral Ridge, Ohio. “The president we have now isn’t much of a president because he really doesn’t do anything. He’s pompous and arrogant.”
Consider, Inspector Clouseau lookalike and most recent electoral loser David Weprin has thrown Obama under the bus:
“How bad are things for Obama? Now a hapless loser like David Weprin is taking potshots at him. We’re about to see a full-fledged insurrection in the Democratic Party. Sit back and watch them devour themselves.
Democrat David Weprin said yesterday that President Obama’s sagging popularity among Queens and Brooklyn voters cost him the election for ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner’s congressional seat.
In a stunning upset, Weprin was trounced by Republican Bob Turner, whose campaign had tied him to the president.
“The message of the campaign was ‘Send Obama a message,’ ” said Weprin, a Queens state assemblyman. “I think the problem was that he’s the president and people are frustrated, and it’s just natural to take it out on the top guy — or the top guy’s party.
“As much as I tried to make it about David Weprin or Bob Turner, I don’t think that resonated to voters. I think that voters looked at it as a referendum on the president,’’ Weprin said.”
Translation of Weprin: Dump Obama Or Die.
Consider, Who is the racist now? Well the Congressional Black Caucus says they ‘“probably would be marching on the White House” if Obama were not president. “If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House.” Racists bigots. Kick black people to the curb and protect the Boob. Way to destroy yourselves and the black community Black Caucus.
Someone needs to tell the Congressional Black Caucus that the people that love to hate Big Pink have caught Obama buying six pant suits. Cross-dressing won’t help Barack. We can spot a boob no matter what he wears.
As to who other than Barack Obama is the worst person to go on TV and say nice things about Barack Obama? Why it’s none other than Bill Clinton. We’ve written about this before every time Bill says something supposedly nice about the Boob but now it is “a source who worked on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign” quoted by Obama lovin’ Politico:
“Now, the former president is preparing for a round of Sunday talk show interviews and the start of his annual conference, and it will be hard for Obama to avoid contrasts: The current president is even scheduled to speak at the CGI conference during a three-day trip to New York.
“[Bill] Clinton all over TV hurts Obama,” said a source who worked on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. “[It] only reminds people over and over again that Bill Clinton was a master at easing the public’s fears during times of crises — plus the economy was booming under his leadership.”
So if that “source who worked on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign” knows that Bill Clinton on TV hurts Barack Obama no matter what Bill says – do you think Bill Clinton knows he hurts Barack Obama when he goes on TV even if he says nice things about the Boob? Think about it? If Bill knows that, why does he go on TV to ostensibly “help” the Boob?
It’s time to report Bill Clinton to AttackWatch and get one of those SS armbands – and we’re not talking Social Security here.
