Man in Obama mask and hazmat suit hangs ‘Obola’ posters across Chicago
For once it’s Barack Obama frightened by horrible news, not the usual Obama horrifies America.
Barack Obama woke up this morning and had two big scares. First he read that a judge had issued a restricted movement order against a nurse in Maine who has dealt with Ebola patients. Video: Maine judge orders Hickox to restrict her movements). Barack was not so scared that this was yet another repudiation of his policies. Something else haunted him.
The judge banned the churlish nurse from public places which scared the bats out of Obama’s belfry. Barack figured, “If they quarantine this nurse, am I next? After all people are calling me “Ebola Obama” because I am political death. No more of the public rallies I crave.” This kept Barack awake and thanking his volcano gods that at least he did not have to look at Michelle now that they have separate beds.
What happens when your friend’s smartphone can tell that you’re lying [snip]
Moodies, an app developed by Beyond Verbal, is able to detect a speaker’s mood based on nothing more than a voice. Worldwide call centers are testing the technology to help operators determine whether callers are upset and likely to switch their business to a competitor. [snip]
One thing is for sure: politics is in for a major overhaul. With every smartphone possessing a virtual lie-detector test, elected officials will need to be creative in the ways they talk to us. In fact, my fear is the most insecure and most powerful politicians will resist, and quickly seek to regulate or restrict these technologies — ignoring their obvious good — in a hidden but discoverable attempt to preserve their own power and half-truths.
A Barack Obama that is unable to lie is a Barack Obama that cannot breathe. A smartphone lie detector would be very much as if everyone had a Big Pink website about to detect every Obama lie. That is a real Obama Halloween Horror.
President Barack Obama is about to do what no president has done in the past 50 years: Have two horrible, terrible, awful midterm elections in a row.
In fact, Obama is likely to have the worst midterm numbers of any two-term president going back to Democrat Harry S. Truman. [snip]
Obama had one midterm where his party lost 63 House seats, and Democrats are expected to lose another 5 to possibly 12 House seats (or more), taking the sitting president’s total midterm House loses to the 68 seat to 75 seat range.
Most recent presidents have one disastrous midterm and another midterm that was not terrible. [snip]
Democrats lost 6 Senate seats in 2010 and seem likely to lose from 5 to as many as 10 seats next week. That would add up to Obama midterm Senate losses of from 11 seats to as many as 16 seats.
Yesterday Barack Obama wobbled over to Wisconsin to campaign against Scott Walker. For days Obama Dimocrats touted the great visit. The race for governor in Wisconsin was usually a tie or one candidate would be a few points ahead of the other candidate. It was all within the margin of error. Obama Dimocrats knew that a visit by Barack Obama would be decisive. Obama Dimocrats publicized the visit for maximum effect. This was the game changer claimed Obama Dimocrats. Barack Obama himself would enter the gates of Madison to bestow his glory upon the Obama Dimocrat and assure a great victory.
Should Walker prevail, he will have, in the space of four years, outlasted the occupation of the state legislature by union and other left-wing activists, survived a recall election—the first governor in U.S. history to do so—and earned a second term in his own right, all while governing as a conservative in one of the bluest states in the nation. Liberal organizations have dedicated more time and money to beating Walker than any other Republican, and yet Walker has taken everything these liberal groups have thrown his way and still come out on top.
If Walker wins on November 4, Republicans should nominate him by acclamation, right then and there, to be their 2016 presidential candidate. The GOP needs a fighter who can step into the ring and dish out as much as he can take, not another man with a glass jaw.
Ebola Obama struck again.
Ebola Obama is a contagion that makes the ears as well as the eyes bleed blood. SSSttttttttttoooooooooooooppppppp!
One week ago, Nunn led Republican David Perdue by 2 points, 46% to 44%. Today, in a dramatic reversal, Perdue is on top, 48% to 45%, a 5-point right turn in one of the nation’s most high-visibility contests.
Ebola Obama cannot be quarantined and no travel ban will deter him from his destructive path. Well… maybe a golf course….
This number jumped out at me from the new Washington Post/ABC News poll: It showed that, among Latinos, 50 percent say it doesn’t matter who wins the Senate come November. And among those who do think it will matter, twice as many say it would be a good thing (30 percent) if the GOP took over as say it would be a bad thing (15 percent).
This is a demographic, we will remind you, that voted 71-27 for President Obama just two years ago. And only 15 percent are concerned about a GOP-controlled Senate.
How big of a year is this going to be for Republicans? It’s still hard to tell, one week before voters go to the polls for the midterm elections.
But it could be bigger than you think.
Stu Rothenberg wrote the above before today’s polls emerged like crocuses heralding spring. A bit dated but still informative, Rothenberg continues:
While two races are likely to go to a runoff (Louisiana in December and Georgia in early January), Republicans now appear well-positioned to take over six Democratic seats: Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Montana, South Dakota and West Virginia.
Colorado and Iowa continue to be more difficult to call.
Republican Rep. Cory Gardner seems to have a slight edge in Colorado, and Republican Joni Ernst is no worse than even money in Iowa. If both win, a Republican takeover of the Senate is virtually guaranteed. Even if only one wins, GOP control will be likely.
Democrats now seem to have only two opportunities: Kansas and Georgia.
Republican Sen. Pat Roberts is drawing a very dangerous 45 percent in hypothetical ballot tests in Kansas and running even with independent Greg Orman. But Republicans have a strong advantage in TV advertising in the final week, and the state’s GOP bent presents a challenge for Orman. [snip]
As Election Day approaches, both South Dakota and Kentucky look more like mirages rather than realistic Democratic opportunities.[snip]
New Hampshire GOP challenger Scott P. Brown trails Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen by only a couple of points, roughly the same situation facing North Carolina Republican challenger Thom Tillis, who trails Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan.[snip]
The fight for the House doesn’t involve control, but it still looks increasingly dangerous for Democrats.
Recent polls have Scott Brown leading in New Hampshire. Recent polls have Tillis ahead in North Carolina. Just about every poll has Cory Gardner ahead in Colorado. With crazed ads like this one from NARAL on the attack, Cory Garnder has nothing to fear:
NARAL must not have heard that Gardner believes in over-the-counter sales of contraceptives. Good thing that it’s a man lecturing that woman about the great condom shortage in the ad. A Condom shortage caused by Cory Gardner? Are they nuts? Yup. What a campaign! It’s as if the Ebola Obama campaign has gone to Obama Dimocrats heads and bled the brain out.
Netanyahu considered attacking Iran, we pressured him not to do it, and now we’re mocking him as a “chickensh*t” for taking our advice? Logically, doesn’t that make The One “King Chickensh*t”? I’ve re-read that boldfaced part five times now and I still can’t quite process it. Not only are they sneering at Bibi for adopting the White House’s own policy, they’re flatly admitting — boasting even — that they made Iran’s nuclear program attack-proof. A bombing run might have worked three years ago but it won’t work now, thanks to … Uncle Sam’s delay tactics on behalf of Tehran. Iran might as well name its first ICBM the “Barack.” You’re welcome, A-holes.
This latest attack and reasoning against Netanyahu informs the world that Ebola Obama is in the last stage of infection. It’s the stage when the brain needs a condom and the mouth needs a sock.
Racists everywhere! Here, there, everywhere a racist! It’s Old McDonalds Farm on Chicago Way.
Since 2008, that year of so much relevance even unto today, Obama Dimocrats have smeared anyone who does not worship that clod who currently occupies the White House. If you dared speak the truth: you’re a racist!
We wrote about these race issues, Charles Barkley, and the “RACIST” epithet in our last article. Now the racist hordes are everywhere. The new RACISM is a black on black crime. It’s African-Americans on the attack against the precious.
Sing it brothers! Sing it loud, sing it proud.
We have often noted that the big mainline women’s organizations no longer care about women (never forget NARAL’s endorsements in 2008. Never forget this year’s Planned Parenthood protection of its profits by forced clinic appointments instead of cheap over-the-counter contraception for women. It’s Planned Profithood.) but about protection of the Obama Dimocrat party.
We’ve noted that labor organization have forsaken the workers and sworn allegiance to the Obama Dimocrat Party. Always we lament that black mainline organization have abandoned the black community and black people as individuals in order to serve the Obama Dimocrat Party.
These mainline organizations are liars and have failed to protect their constituencies. The organizations have failed. POWER TO THE PEOPLE. POWER TO THE INDIVIDUAL.
The overseers on the plantation are finally under attack.
The overseers will shout “RACIST!” regardless of the skin color of the individual that attacks them. Black, or white, or whatever shade of skin, you too can be a “RACIST” if you attack the overseers and their plantation Simon Legree foreman Barack Obama.
But, but, but Republicans are evil and always have been, right? We must fear and hate them because well, we must fear and hate them and run away, right? Well the Republicans were the good guys at the time of their founding and the Democrats were the bad guys. Then the leadership of the party changed and the bad guys are the good guys and the good guys are the bad guys. Every cop a criminal. The saints are sinners and all the sinners saints. Tails is heads. Heads is tails. The party you once knew is the party you never knew.
Martin Luther King was a Republicans because it was Democrats that oppressed blacks. It was Democrats, yup, like Lyndon Johnson who stopped civil rights legislation. Then came Kennedy and heads switched.
Side with the side that is best for you not the side that whispers sweet words but robs you blind. Organizations change. Principles shouldn’t.
Countries change. Governments change. Sometimes the change does not come willingly. The great Declaration:
Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
Ditto political parties.
Some will hold on to political party as if was an object holy. But political parties are born to serve not to be served. Whenever a political party usurps the power of those it is bound to serve it must be decapitated and entombed. If a political party becomes destructive to your ends, abolish it.
Elbert Guillory is an individual. For many years he was a faithful elected Democrat. Then came 2008 and his eyes opened. Guillory left the plantation.
By 2014 Elbert Guillory’s eyes are wide open.
Elbert Guillory knows something that even the savviest of politicians often stupidly forget: Political parties are like toilet paper – you keep them around only as long as they are useful then you discard them.
The Democratic Party died in 2008 and now the replacement Obama Dimocrat Party is soiled. But soiled or not some politicians and voters won’t let go of the stinky. And so they stink too.
The Republican Party these past few years has changed. It is because the Republican Party has found itself quite inadvertently, by sheer circumstance, in opposition to the totalitarian impulses and policies of Barack Obama – as well as the corruptions and incompetence of Barack Obama himself – that the Republican Party find itself in this position alongside the American people. Whether it is on Ebola related issues or ObamaCare, , the economy, waste and abuse of the taxpayer dollars, freedom and constitutional issues, abuse of processes and government and much more the Obama Dimocrat Party is the party of totalitarianism, authoritarianism, corruption and abuse.
Many Democrats became what they once opposed.
Does the Republican Party deserve your vote this November? That’s for every individual to decide. But does the Obama Dimocrat Party deserve your vote this November? Absolutely not. The Obama Dimocrat Party, like Barack Obama only deserves contempt and abuse. We will happily provide both.
What to do in November? What is our advice? First, as we have explained we do not think any Obama Dimocrat deserves a vote. A vote for any Obama Dimocrat will only serve to encourage, individually and collectively, the Obama corruptions we are all so tired of. The Obama Dimocrat Party is soiled.
Second, do Republicans merit a vote? Maybe, maybe not. But we don’t think that is the issue.
To us the Republican Party this November is like toilet paper. We will use it to wipe away the Obama, er, stink. The majority of likely voters agree with us that Obama Dimocrats deserve punishment. That is proper and just.
This November we hope American voters will use the Republican Party to wipe away what needs to be wiped away.
Jeez, here we go again. The recycled argument from Obama defenders is “forget what happened in 2008” and vote for Obama Dimocrats. We thought we had dispensed with that stupidity in our article Is It Still 2007? This latest ploy to get votes for Obama Dimocrats demands ignorance. This latest flim-flam insists we not learn from the past.
We believe voters/people do and should learn from the past.
The lessons of 2008 are exactly as we described back in 2008. We declared Obama was the death of the Democratic Party. We knew that Obama’s rise meant the birth of an Obama Dimocrat Party based on race-baiting. The race-baiting by duplicitous blacks and wannabee totalitarian youngsters (along with their gentry white liberal parents) relied on tactics used by European fascists and leftists.
Hey we said the ones that would be most hurt by Obama and the Obama Dimocrat Party would be the foolish blacks who allowed themselves to be persuaded by the duplicitous blacks to vote for a black man because of skin color. We said that the young’uns would live to regret their votes and support for the cult of Barack Obama once they became victims of the Obama regime’s policies.
Yes, 2008 matters. The “Mistake in ’08” teaches us what to avoid and what not to do. The lessons of 2008 are a guide to the future.
Yet, Obama cult leaders (under the thinly veiled pretense they deplore the cult leader and are wise to him even as they do everything they can to make sure he is not made irrelevant by a resounding Republican victory in 2014) persist with “forget 2008” and “lean forward”.
You cannot lean or go forward without an analysis of what went wrong in 2008. In 2008 the Democratic Party ceased to exist. In 2008 the Obama Dimocrat Party was born. In 2016 the Obama Dimocrat Party must be destroyed in order to “lean forward” and resurrect a Democratic Party stripped of the indecencies of past decades.
So ask yourselves before you vote and prepare to “lean forward”: how did all those 2008 Obama promises work out?
For Hillary’s birthday we thought we would unwrap as gifts several articles which provide answers (We provided those answers back in 2007/2008 only to be scoffed at by the Obama cult. Now a little more than a week before the 2014 elections some unlikely voices echo us.)
Remember that “coalition of the ascendant” which to us sounded eerily like “the thousand year Reich”? Cult leader Barack Obama was the “lean forward” “turn the page” from the past Goliath to shape the future. But Goliath he lieth then laid down and dieth.
Will Obama Leave the Democratic Party Better Than He Found It?
Barack Obama was elected on a swell of energy and enthusiasm, but he might leave the Democratic Party worse off than when he took office. [snip]
When Obama became the Democratic presidential nominee in late August 2008, his party held 236 seats in the House, 51 seats in the Senate, and 28 governorships. In the 2008 elections, Obama won the White House, and Democrats grew to 257 House seats, 59 Senate seats (including independents) and 29 governorships.
After these midterm elections, Democrats could hold roughly 195 House seats, 48 Senate seats and no more than half of the governorships.
After a historic presidential candidacy, unprecedented fundraising and a vaunted get-out-the-vote operation, it’s very possible that the Democratic Party will fall below below the levels it was at before Obama took office.
Democratic Party is dead, dude. Barack Obama killed it and now it is a faded cult. Only Tommy Vietor at the Hillary Clinton 2016 operation thinks otherwise.
From patron saint to pariah: how Barack Obama became toxic for Democrats
With midterm elections only two weeks away, Democrat candidates are doing something they never would have dreamed of in 2008: distancing themselves from President Barack Obama [snip]
Pollsters have noted that Mr Obama’s popularity has declined even with those key demographics like women and minorities that twice propelled him to the White House.
A poll last month found that women now disapprove of the president by a 50pc to 44pc margin, a near reversal of Mr Obama’s 55-44pc advantage among women in the 2012 race, according to the Washington Post/ABC News survey.
Having ducked the chance to push immigration reform, the same poll found his support among Hispanics had fallen nearly 20 points since the summer of 2013.
The African-American electorate is more dependable – 87pc still approve of the president – but the difficulty is motivating black voters to turn out in a non-presidential election year.
A recently leaked memo by a former Obama pollster predicted “crushing losses” if Democrats failed to mobilise the black vote – but also found that half of black Americans did not even know when elections were taking place.
Hey, you live by the cult, you die by the cult. You vote only based on color of skin and you die based on color of skin. A cult of personality and skin color, we argued in 2008, is not a good foundation for a political party.
Hey, were you offended a few paragraphs above when we spoke of “duplicitous blacks”? That’s racist right? You can’t say any black person is evil, lazy, duplicitous, nasty, arrogant/uppity, stupid, etc. without the “RACIST!” brand seared onto you. When we spoke the truth about Barack Obama flim-flam man in 2008/2007 we got called “RACIST!”
The real racists of course are those that don’t see black people as “people” at all. The real racists who controlled the dialog in 2008 see black people as their little organ grinder monkeys – so cute and sweet – all they want is a pat on the head. The real racists don’t see that black people can be noble but they can also be swine. The real racists don’t see that black people can be competitive flim-flam con-men and con-women in any flim-flam Olympics. The real racist don’t see that some black people will attack black people who see the truth and tell the truth.
In 2008 we saw Hillary Clinton supporters who happened to be black called “race-traitors” and worse. John Lewis at first endorsed Hillary. Then John Lewis shamed himself forever when he chained himself to the slavery of the Obama cult because he was race-baited by fellow blacks.
”Unfortunately, as I tell my white friends, we as black people, we’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you’re black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people. It’s a dirty, dark secret; I’m glad it’s coming out.”
Barkley said that young black men who do well in school are accused of “acting white” by their peers. “One of the reasons we’re never going to be successful as a whole, because of other black people. And for some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not black enough. If you go to school, make good grades, speak intelligent, and don’t break the law, you’re not a good black person. And it’s a dirty, dark secret.”
“There are a lot of black people who are unintelligent, who don’t have success,” he continued. “It’s best to knock a successful black person down because they’re intelligent, they speak well, they do well in school, and they’re successful…”
“We’re the only ethnic group who say, ‘Hey, if you go to jail, it gives you street cred.’ It’s just typical BS that goes on when you’re black, man.”
Yeah, you have to vote for the black man if you are black otherwise you are a race traitor – as black Hillary Clinton supporters found out – in 2008.
Black disappointment with Obama threatens Democrats
Black voters’ disappointment with President Barack Obama, who they so eagerly embraced for so many years, could be costly on Election Day to Democrats, who badly need a big African-American turnout to win Senate and gubernatorial races in key states.
Instead, many African-Americans see an unemployment rate well above the national average, continuing problems with crime in many neighborhoods, and a president more interested in trying to help other voting blocs that didn’t give him such unwavering support.
He talks about same-sex marriage in a nod to the gay and lesbian community. He discusses immigration and its benefits, an issue particularly important to the Latino community. He fights for equal pay, a vital issue to the women Democrats so avidly court.
The black community, which gave Obama support like no other group, too often doesn’t see the investment paying off.
Hey, you live by the cult, you die by the cult. Race-baiting got Barack Obama where he is. Now even the stupid blacks that voted based on skin color are getting what they deserve. The black middle class is decimated while Obama golfs.
Keep on voting for Barack Obama black people. Stupidity is as stupidity does.
“We had this idea that once we got the first black president, all our problems would be solved,” said Aaron McKinney, a Miami community organizer. He walked around the Jackson Soul Food restaurant in Overtown one day recently urging people to vote.
Stupidity. Get votes for the flim-flam man who is flim-flamming – you. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
Historically, the use of race in this manner is a sign of worried campaign, who have access to internal polling the general public does not. We’ve seen it this cycle in North Carolina, where parishioners at a black church received fliers using images of a lynching and warning if Democrat Kay Hagan loses President Obama will be impeached, and Georgia, where Democrats told voters to vote for Democrats “to prevent another Ferguson.” Now we see it in the very, very blue Maryland.
Black hustlers profit by race-baiting. But the big race-bait hustlers are the white liberals who use black people like organ grinder monkeys in need of a pat on the head and a race-baiting treat:
Churchgoers in Fayetteville returned to their cars Sunday to find a political flyer on their windshield — which is to be expected 16 days before an election. But this flyer was different from the normal “Vote for candidate X” or “Oppose ballot question Y” fliers people are used to. This flyer was a picture of the lynching of a black man by a white crowd with the words “Kay Hagan Doesn’t WIN! Obama’s IMPEACHMENT Will Begin! Vote in 2014.”
The church is Kingdom Impact Global Ministries, a predominantly African-American congregation. Dawn McNair’s daughter found one of the fliers on her mother’s car and noticed the picture. “My daughter said, ‘Mom, look in the background. They’re lynching somebody.’ It’s the lynching of an African-American man,” Dawn told the Fayetteville Observer.
The message to the black parishioners was clear: Vote for the Democrat to protect the black president.
The Obama Dimocrat Party race-baits for fun and profit. Other than malicious black leaders the biggest exploiters of the race-bait lies are white liberals grinding on that organ.
Democratic appeals to racial division are worse than ever. [snip]
Mr. Obama’s approval ratings are so bad that Democrats will need to drive a huge turnout to drag many incumbents over the victory line. The core of their political base are African-Americans, more than 90% of whom still register high approval of the President, and many of whom reside in battleground Senate states like Georgia, Louisiana and North Carolina. The party’s problem is that black turnout often drops sharply in midterms.
Hope and change are long gone, so Democrats are now playing the race card to scare black Americans to the ballot box. At the milder end of this spectrum is the Democratic National Committee’s appeal that the midterms should be a gesture in racial solidarity. “GET HIS BACK,” reads an ad the party committee is running in black newspapers. “Republicans have made it clear that they want our President—Barack Obama—to fail. If you don’t vote this November 4, they win.”
The harder, nasty edge is playing out in individual campaigns. The Democratic Party of Georgia is distributing a flyer that shows two young black children holding signs that say “Don’t Shoot.” The flyer reads: “If You Want To Prevent Another Ferguson In Their Future . . . VOTE.”[snip]
What Ferguson has to do with pressing the Senate candidacy of white Georgia Democrat Michelle Nunn isn’t clear, other than that Ms. Nunn can’t win without a resounding black vote.
In North Carolina, black residents have received flyers that show a lynching scene, with the superimposed words: “ Kay Hagan doesn’t win! Obama’s impeachment will begin! Vote in 2014.” [snip]
In Maryland, where Democrat Anthony Brown is running to become the state’s first black Governor, the state Democratic Party has released a flyer showing pictures of a civil-rights march, a “colored waiting room” sign, and Donald Trump alongside the words: “Where’s the birth certificate?” The flyer ends: “In Maryland, it’s our turn to take an important step in the journey . . . Vote for Anthony Brown.”
Democrats are also building on the fears stoked by Eric Holder ’s Justice Department about voter ID laws. Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Grimes is running a radio ad in urban areas in which a male narrator claims she is a “champion” for civil rights. The ad goes on to say that Republican Senator Mitch McConnell “has been leading the Republican effort to take away our voting rights. Just like he blocked everything from getting done in Washington, he’s blocking the ballot box and trying to silence our voices.”
That’s the Obama Dimocrat Party. Race baiter Alison Grimes. Race-baiter Anthony Brown. Race baiter Kay Hagen. Race-baiter Michelle Nunn. That’s the Obama Dimocrat Party Obama supporters want you to support with your votes.
Barack Obama race-baited in 2008. “They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. ‘He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?’” Obama thugs branded Hillary, then McCain, then Romney “racists”. That’s the party Obama supporters want you to endorse with votes.
What does a vote for the race-baiting Obama Dimocrat Party get you? More race-baiting.
Recently Obama supporter Clarence Page wondered “where is Obama’s political movement?” Well Clarence, there never was a “political movement”. It was always a cult of personality gift wrapped in race-baiting.
Obama’s youth votes mutinies, ‘disaster’ election predicted for Dems
A prominent Democratic pollster is warning that the election looks to be “a disaster” for Democrats because younger, so-called millennial voters, are abandoning President Obama’s party.
“Millennials could have the definitive impact on the election, and that impact could be from them not showing up,” warned Celinda Lake.
“They look to have the lowest turnout rates right now which would be a disaster for progressive candidates,” she added in an online interview for Harvard University’s Institute of Politics.
Lake, one of the Washington’s top pollsters, said that younger voters are frustrated with the Democrats and feel abandoned by politics.
“That’s the biggest concern right now for Democrats and progressives in particular, is that millennial voters look very, very discouraged. They don’t think that anyone has particularly spoken to them, anyone has been doing anything for them, it’s a bad economy, it’s expensive education, and all the kinds of concerns that millennials have,” said Lake.
So has Hillary Clinton learned from 2008 as much as the young and stupid learned? Is this smart or stupid?:
A Clinton aide said she is relying on the recommendations of the Democratic national and state committees and on the White House when choosing where to campaign. Much of her effort thus far has been on behalf of Senate candidates, as Democrats face the likelihood that they will lose their slim Senate majority in the Nov. 4 vote.
Rely on the White House???? That “dude” Tommy Veitor thinks this is real smart. Or at least he likes Hillary’s sabotage of herself because it profits his lord and master Barack Obama whom he serves so well.
How can anyone but Obama defenders think this is at all smart? The arguments Hillary Clinton made in 2008 have won the day. Barack Obama is a proven failure for the very reason Hillary stated back then. But now recycled Obama cultists under a disguise of being Hillary supporters whisper, then shout, in Hillary’s ear that she should use her talents and abilities to prop up the Obama Dimocrat Party in 2014 and 2016.
Any support for the Obama Dimocrat Party in 2014 by Hillary Clinton will be paid for in full in 2016. The voters will not forget.
On Sunday, NBC News released new data from a variety of races. NBC News/Marist surveyed the electoral landscape in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Arkansas, South Dakota, and North Carolina and they found, universally, that the political winds are at the Republicans’ backs.
Yet it’s not clear that sticking her neck out to save Sen. Mary Landrieu and/or Michelle Nunn will help Clinton much. Should Democrats hold on to a one- or two-seat majority, the former secretary of State would have to spend the next two years defending Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. It would be far better for her campaign to run against a crazy, obstructionist, overreaching GOP Congress.
Now there’s a “smart” gift. The Hill is suggesting, as we have much more vividly, that a cost/benefit analysis advocates for a sit back and watch the Obama Dimocrat Party implode.
Will Hillary sit back and enjoy this birthday gift? We hope so.
Someone thought of as “smart” that is stupid in every sense of the word. It’s not just that something stupid has been done. The “smart” person crossed the line and is now the very definition of “stupid”.
We have someone who presumably graduated from the arduous training and scholastic hurdles of many years to become a medical doctor. This wonderful person then has a wonderful idea: go to West Africa to help people and fight Ebola. So far so good.
This truly stupid person goes to West Africa to fight Ebola and cure people from the dreadful disease only to then turn around and become a petri dish of Ebola and potentially infect Americans:
New York Ebola doctor’s fiancee and TWO friends quarantined amid fears he gave them deadly virus: Potential victims in isolation – and there could be more after medic spent SEVEN days riding the subway, bowling and traveling in Uber taxis
Think about that. A doctor crosses the ocean goes to help people with Ebola then brings Ebola home. Home is Harlem. This is the very Harlem filled with people who voted for Barack Obama because of his skin color.
We do not have sympathy for stupid.
But don’t worry New Yorkers. The Obama “protocols” to contain Ebola are in place and ready to protect the populace so no damn quarantine nor travel ban is needed. Don’t worry wherever you are in the country as Ebola comes to your community. Don’t worry as you watch the protocol ready New York City police dump their protective gear after a visit to the Ebola doctor’s apartment not in a disinfecting fire but in the local garbage bin.
Who is to blame for this situation? First, Barack Obama is to blame. Second, those that endorsed Barack Obama and urged the citizenry to vote for Barack Obama. Third, the voters that voted for Barack Obama. And let’s not leave out the Obama protection squads with ready made excuses and pleas for votes to elect Obama Dimocrats and to buttress the perfidious Barack Obama.
The stupid doctor that went to West Africa to fight Ebola then unwittingly (“stupidly” is the better word) smuggled Ebola into Harlem is responsible for the potential danger posed to millions of New York City residents. But the stupid doctor is not solely to blame.
Barack Obama policies are to blame. The very same Obama policies that are on the ballot this November. Barack Obama did not institute a travel ban from West African countries to the United States. Barack Obama did not institute required quarantines of those who travel from West Africa to the United States.
The voters are also to blame. Last night Obama Dimocrat Governor Andrew Cuomo screwed the citizens of New York in order to protect Barack Obama.
Obama Dimocrat Governor Andrew Cuomo did not denounce Barack Obama’s policies which allowed this stupid doctor to meander through the city’s streets and transportation network unimpeded. Obama Dimocrat Governor Andrew Cuomo is up for election this November and will likely be easily reelected.
Last night as Obama Dimocrat Governor Andrew Cuomo protected Barack Obama and Barack Obama policies many New Yorkers prepared to vote for him. Even those that are not happy with Barack Obama will vote for Obama Dimocrat Governor Andrew Cuomo. After all, they reason, it’s a local election and the Obama Dimocrat is better than the Republican guy, whatever his name is.
But a vote for the Republican guy, whatever his name is, whatever his policies are, is a vote against an Obama Dimocrat and a vote against Barack Obama and against Barack Obama’s policies. That is the issue this election.
Barack Obama has said his policies are on the ballot this November. Any victory will be a salve for the wounds about to be inflicted on the corruption called Barack Obama.
Every victory for an Obama Dimocrat this November is a victory for Barack Obama. Barack Obama will say that those that supported him won. Barack Obama will say that those that ran away from him lost. Soon every Obama Dimocrat that wins will garner a visit from Barack Obama with a wide grin.
“I think Obama being so unpopular is the biggest factor in this election,” said Tom Jensen, a Democratic pollster with the firm Public Policy Polling. “And I think at the end of the day, it may be too much for a lot of the Democratic Senate candidates to overcome.”
In national legislature elections the issue is Barack Obama and Barack Obama’s policies. But the same is true of every election even though many wish to not think it so. An Obama Dimocrat candidate for dogcatcher in Podunk that wins is a victory for Barack Obama.
Obama Dimocrats up for election or reelection in November will use any distraction. Minimum wage increases, war on women, race-baiting, environmentalism, abortion, all are distractions. The issue this November is Barack Obama.
Obama Dimocrat Governor Andrew Cuomo will continue to protect Barack Obama. Yesterday, in New York City, a Muslim with deep hatred of the West and anything that is non-Muslim took an ax and smashed it into the head of a 25 year old cop. The Muslim with an ax then slashed at another copy.
It was a terrorist attack. But Barack Obama won’t call it an Islamic terrorist attack. Obama Dimocrat Governor Andrew Cuomo won’t demand that Barack Obama and his thugs call the Muslim terrorist attack a Muslim terrorist attack.
It’s not a national election? It’s just a local election? Tell that to Obama’s grin as his crony governor in New York romps to victory. Tell that to Barack Obama as Obama Dimocrat Governor Andrew Cuomo protects Barack Obama on Ebola and a Muslim terrorist attack – all in one day.
Think we are wrong? Think we are the ones that are “stupid”? Picture the reaction if even safe Obama Dimocrats in “local” elections like Andrew Cuomo lose reelection. It would be a blow to Barack Obama beyond dispute. Then picture the reaction if even “red state” Republicans for congress lose. That would be a boon to Barack Obama beyond dispute.
It’s not a matter of whom we like more or what distraction is employed to fool the voter. It’s not about excuse making to vote for an Obama Dimocrat. The election in 2014 is about Barack Obama. That is the sole issue. Nothing else matters.
Update II: The Masque of the Red Death continues to play a dirge. It’s now confirmed. The news is Breaking: New Ebola case in NYC Ebola Obama policies are to blame. Also in New York City, an ax murderer attacks police in broad daylight. Ebola Obama policies are to blame. Any vote for an Obama Dimocrat this November, no matter how well intentioned or “tactical”, is a vote in support for Ebola Obama. That’s the undeniable “hard choice” that has to be made.
A terrible disease called the Red Death has struck the country. It’s incredibly fatal, horribly gruesome, and it’s already killed off half the kingdom. But the ruler of these parts, Prince Prospero, doesn’t seem to care about his poor, dying subjects. Instead, he decides to let the kingdom take care of itself while he and a thousand of his favorite knights and ladies shut themselves up in a fabulous castle to have one never-ending party. Wine, women, music, dancing, fools – Prospero’s castle has it all. After the last guest enters, no one else can get in – the Prince has welded the doors shut. That means no one can get out, either…
It’s Ebola Obama and the trapped courtiers. Prince Ebola Prospero Obama doesn’t care about his poor, dying subjects. His favorites are trapped by welded doors inside the asylum. No one can get out. The doors are welded shut by Ebola Obama.
Obama giftwraps another sound bite for Republicans
A couple weeks ago, President Obama declared that, while he wasn’t on the Nov. 4 ballot, his policies were. And just about every GOP candidate in a red or swing state soon launched an ad using that comment to tie his or her Democratic opponent to Obama.
Well, Obama appears to have just handed Republicans some more ammunition.
In an interview with Rev. Al Sharpton on Monday, Obama defended his support for candidates in top races who haven’t welcomed Obama to campaign with them.
“The bottom line is, though, these are are all folks who vote with me; they have supported my agenda in Congress,” Obama said.
He continued: “So this isn’t about my feelings being hurt. These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. I tell them — I said, you do what you need to do to win.”
The doors are welded shut by Ebola Obama:
While it’s the second time Obama has gone down this road, this comment probably stings more than the last one for Democrats running in key Senate races — almost all of which are in red or swing states where Obama is quite unpopular.
While Obama’s previous comment suggested the election was indeed something of a referendum on him, these comments suggest not only that, but that Democratic candidates are actually on-board with him — something most of them have made pains to argue is not the case.
Obama’s comments are the kind of thing Democrats might privately say to assure donors and the party base, but wouldn’t really say in public. [snip]
At the same time, he’s really only saying something that most political observers already believe to be true — that however much distance these Democrats are seeking from the president, they will generally be on-board with his agenda. [snip]
It’s just that two weeks before an election in states in which Obama isn’t all that popular, Democratic candidates probably don’t want voters to be reminded of that fact.
The doors are welded shut. One month before the November 2014 elections we wrote about when Obama first began to weld the doors. We posted some of the GOP ads which mocked those trapped with Ebola Obama. Allison Grimes, Michelle Nunn, Mark Pryor, Mark Udall, Jeanne Shaheen, Mary Landrieu, and all the rest of those who dance with Ebola Obama were shocked when they heard Obama give the game away. They whispered the famous line from The Godfather III.
Pulled back in. These rubber stamp Obama supporters wanted to deceive the public. But they are trapped. Trapped behind welded doors. Ebola Obama himself calls them his “supporters”.
Evil money and its innocent twin, the enthusiasm factor, are what count in the homestretch, and shadows have fallen across Democratic races everywhere. They’re dusting off the panic button at the White House. It doesn’t quite feel like 2010, not yet, but the Republicans are fired up, and the Democrats aren’t. It’s just about time to light candles to the ghost of Harry Truman, the patron saint of candidates on the ropes.
Old guys who aren’t yet ghosts are trotted out to reprise the triumphs of yesteryear. Bubba spent the weekend in Arkansas with Democratic candidates, but it was more like visiting the hospital bed of a gravely ill friend than to deliver a full-throated battle cry to rally the troops. [snip]
The news for Democrats is dour in unexpected places. Mark Udall, practicing the cowboy two-step on a cakewalk only a month ago, has fallen into a lake, or a drainage ditch or someone’s swimming pool, because his nose is bobbing under water in Colorado. The tightening polls are beginning to feel like a noose around Kay Hagen’s neck in North Carolina. She was cruising to a coronation only a fortnight ago.
Threatened Democratic nominees in Kentucky and Georgia and the Democratic candidate in West Virginia insist they don’t remember or won’t say who they voted for in either 2008 or 2012. (Barack Who?) Mark Begich in Alaska is the latest to suffer an amnesia attack and has joined the ladies on the fainting couch.
The stormy night gets darker by the hour. More dark, stormy nights and days are ahead. After a few sunny quarters of flush cash and drunken sprees on television ads Obama Dimocrats face the hoard of cash stashed for use two weeks before the election by the GOP. “Republican candidates reported outraising Democratic senators by margins of millions, and most of them have more cash on hand to buy television time over the next crucial fortnight.”
Tom Cotton has more cash on hand than does Arkansas racist Mark Pryor. In Colorado Cory Gardner has twice the cash on hand than rival Mark Udall. Scott Brown also outraised Jeanne Shaheen in the third quarter which should help him as the race is now tied in polls.
Running Against Obama, Republicans Positioned for Midterm Sweep
Most of the battleground Senate races are trending in the GOP’s direction, while Democrats are playing defense in the House. [snip]
In July, I wrote that the odds of a nationalized election were growing because of that worsening environment for Democrats. Back then, there were clear signs that the red-state races were tilting in the GOP’s direction, while Republicans were running surprisingly strong campaigns in swing states. Those trends have only solidified since then. [snip]
Now, it’s becoming likely that Republicans will win more than the six seats necessary to retake control of the Senate.
Throughout this election cycle, the Democrats have been dogged by the president’s health care law. [snip] Indeed, despite conventional wisdom that health care has diminished as a top issue in the midterms, it’s still (by far) the dominant theme in Republican congressional campaign ads, according to The Cook Political Report’s Elizabeth Wilner. Not only does it mobilize angry Republican voters, but it persuades disaffected independents as well. [snip]
Over the summer, worsening foreign policy was also an issue that looked bound to get worse for Democrats, not better. [snip]
All told, the cascading number of controversies and scandals in the president’s second term has fed into the perception that this administration is out of its depth in doing its primary job: managing government. And that’s not good for Democrats, both the party in power and the party associated with an activist federal government. The dominant theme in the campaign’s final month is Democratic Senate candidates struggling to distance themselves from the president, from Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor’s awkward assessment of the president’s handling of the Ebola crisis to Kentucky Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes’s refusal to discuss whom she voted for in the 2012 election.
They can run for office but they cannot hide their rubber stamp votes to support Ebola Obama. Now they’re in the fetid crumbling fortress with welded doors. The Red Death dances in the halls:
Republicans now are positioned to net between six and nine Senate seats in the upcoming midterms, with the higher end looking more likely. Most of the battleground Senate contests are now either trending in a Republican direction or remaining stable with a GOP advantage. Trailing in the North Carolina Senate race throughout much of the fall, Republican Thom Tillis has lately put Sen. Kay Hagan on the defensive by connecting her to the president’s management of the ISIS threat and the outbreak of Ebola. In Colorado, GOP Rep. Cory Gardner has led in all of the six public polls released in October, with leads ranging from 2 to 6 points. Early voting data out of Iowa is looking favorable for Republican Joni Ernst, consistent with public polls showing her with a small advantage. The Cook Political Reportrecently moved the New Hampshire race between Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Republican Scott Brown into toss-up status, indicative of polling showing Shaheen still ahead but with a rapidly narrowing lead. Outside of Kansas, political analyst Stuart Rothenberg now has Republicans holding an edge in all the red-state races, reflecting a nationalized environment against the party in power. [snip]
In a neutral environment, Democrats would hold a good shot at an upset or two. But in a nationalized midterm, Republicans should catch breaks in states where the fundamentals favor them.
All the trend lines in the House favor Republicans, as well.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is yanking advertising in many races. The fights are now in blue districts to protect office holders. Districts Obama won by double digits in California, Hawaii, and New York are now battlegrounds that might elect Republicans due to disgust with Ebola Obama.
With anxiety over Ebola running high, renewed fears of terrorism, and most Americans not feeling secure economically, it doesn’t take much imagination to see how voters could decisively punish the governing party
“They’ve got themselves a little better disciplined. But, you know, the fact is that Obama’s down with everybody, let’s face it, there’s a reason,” Brown said. “And I think that particularly for women. I don’t think it makes them feel safe. I think they’re feeling unsafe. Economically, they’re feeling unsafe. With regard to ISIS, they’re feeling unsafe. They feel unsafe about Ebola. What they’re feeling unsafe about is the government response to different crises. And I think they’re beginning to feel a bit that Obama’s like that guy in the corner office, you know, who’s too cool for school, calls a meeting, says this has to change, doesn’t put anything in place to make sure it does change, then it goes wrong and he’s blaming everybody. So there’s a slight sense of that.”
This has been an election full of magic. White Magic that only the black man from everywhere and nowhere could perform. Even his adored grandmother dying on the eve of the victory had a mythic feeling of completion to it in a candidacy full of signs and symbols. Remember the three-point basketball shot when he played with the soldiers in Kuwait? It’s as if Obama is the prince who lifts the curse in a fairy story, a curse that began eight years ago with an election wrenched away from the rightful winner and begetting as a consequence the wrathful visitation of tragedy and wars and hurricanes and economic collapse.
In two short weeks the voters will shout loud enough to be heard through welded doors. The voters will borrow from Edgar Allen Poe. The voters will answer Ebola Obama and his stealth supporters’ plea for votes with “Nevermore!”
After President Clinton emailed you this morning to ask for help, we really thought we would be in a better place. But we aren’t. The Koch Brothers, Karl Rove, and the other Republican outside groups are spending millions against us. It’s the biggest spending spree of any midterm election EVER. So big — it doesn’t even look like President Clinton’s email can dig us out of this hole. There is still time, though. Things are rough, but we’re not ready to accept defeat. If we can bring in 5O,OOO donations before tomorrow’s ad buy deadline, we can get back on track. Will you answer President Clinton’s call-to-action today?
Obama’s losses will be blamed on old and useless Bill and Hillary by Obama Dimocrats. Any defense of the stupidity of Hillary and Bill’s grab for Obama stink is hollow and not very well thought out. No one can provide a cost-benefit analysis that justifies this level of stupidity in which nothing is gained but much is put at risk.
Hill and Bill are being set up and are either too stupid to realize it, too out of practice for this new era, or have surrounded themselves with Obama lackey advisers. Maybe they have not learned one damn thing from 2008. Or maybe this is all part of a farewell tour because with a stupid strategy like we have seen thus far Hillary Clinton 2016 is not going anywhere if this stupidity continues.
Can someone explain to us how in blazes Hillary helps Hillary Clinton 2016 with the few, yet one too many, campaign appearances in 2014? Will someone please explain the strategy? This situation reminds us more than anything of fear and loathing on the campaign trail 2007-2008.
However, as we have noted Bill and Hillary Clinton are determined to grab some of the stink of failure for November 2014. We continue to warn them against what they are doing. The warnings come in some very tough language from us. Our warnings will get tougher.
There is nothing in the current stupid Hillary strategy to campaign for Obama rubber stamps under the guise of “Clinton Democrat” that benefits Hillary Clinton 2016. Nothing. There are however plenty of downsides.
The stories on election night 2014 should all be about the rejection of Barack Obama. But the Hillary and Bill stupid strategy is already the subject of political prognostication and extrapolation. This is a headline we should never have seen if not for a stupid strategy from Bill and Hill: 2014’s ‘Clinton Democrats’ crashing and burning:
For all the analysis which correctly notes that associating with President Barack Obama is no relief for Democrats running in 2014, particularly those in red states, it is those Democratic politicians running as “Clinton Democrats” who are watching their campaigns implode.
“Self-proclaimed Clinton Democrats are struggling this election cycle, and not even their powerful namesakes may be enough to save them,” The Hill reported on Sunday. “Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have tried to turn on their charms to help centrist Democrats in Kentucky and Arkansas. But as candidates in both states are slipping, help from the party’s preeminent power couple is falling short.”
The articles note that Kentucky Secretary of State Allion Grimes and Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor are emblazoning themselves with the Clinton crest in order to save themselves. When they lose, and they will, the election night articles will be about Hillary’s failure (and Bill’s failure) to move the needle and get votes.
How does this help Hillary Clinton 2016? What Hillary should do is stay home with the grandchild and keep her mouth shut. Let the party sink under its own corruptions. Then after the loss every party official will realize Obama is Ebola and they will seek the cure: Hillary Clinton 2016. Hillary then would be a way to escape the bad headlines and the bad memories of a disaster of an election night.
On election night 2014 Bill Clinton will be the headline loser in Arkansas. This won’t help Hillary Clinton 2016 either.
Some might mistakenly believe this excerpt is positive news for Hillary Clinton 2016:
It’s not pro-Clinton moderates, but Obama-backing progressives who are most likely to head to the polls despite anti-Democratic headwinds.
That analysis is based on some excellent PEW polls about the probable 2014 electorate. So why then are Hillary and Bill campaigning to get out sane “Clinton voters” when the only voters headed to the polls in 2014 are those that want to save their precious Barack Obama? Does any of this “strategy” make sense?
Maybe Bill Clinton thought if he campaigned in Arkansas Republican Tom Cotton would go nuts and attack him. But Tom Cotton has been entirely smart and responded to Bill Clinton in a really smart way which makes Bill appear like a dunce. Tom Cottom respected Bill Clinton and used Bill Clinton, like a foil, to attack:
To some of those voters, there’s a certain continuity between supporting the moderate Democrat Bill Clinton, beginning when he was first elected governor in 1978, and supporting Cotton today. In a state that has rapidly switched from blue to red, they believe they have stayed the same, while the Democratic Party has changed. So for a young, ambitious Republican politician, it might not be a good idea to attack the man so many Republican voters once supported. And indeed, in an interview on his campaign RV as it bounced along the bumpy roads of rural Arkansas, Cotton not only refrained from attacking Clinton, he went out of his way to compare Clinton’s legacy favorably to the record of President Obama. [snip]
“The facts and the Clinton legacy look a lot better in contrast to the Obama legacy,” Cotton replied. “I’m not concerned about Bill Clinton’s support for Mark Pryor. I’m worried about Mark Pryor’s support for Barack Obama.“
See, no Monica, no attacks. Tom Cotton used Bill Clinton like a cigar against Mark Pryor.
Instead of a focus on Barack Obama and his many failures which lead to electoral defeat, Bill and Hillary Clinton are stealing some of the stink. Lot at the headline at The Hill:
‘Clinton Democrats’ falling flat [snip]
Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have tried to turn on their charms to help centrist Democrats in Kentucky and Arkansas. But as candidates in both states are slipping, help from the party’s preeminent power couple is falling short. [snip]
That raises questions not only for Hillary Clinton as she ponders a 2016 White House bid, but also for the Democratic Party as it finds itself increasingly unsuccessful in the Deep South and Appalachia.
Steal some more of that Ebola Obama stink Bill and Hill. That’s some real smart politicking.
Clinton allies and longtime observers of the 42nd president and his wife say that if anyone can make Southern states a battleground in 2016 – and at least force the GOP to use valuable resources to keep the South red – it’s Hillary Clinton.
There’s plenty of reason to believe the Clintons view the situation the same way. [snip]
“These appearances are really the beginning of their campaign to redefine the Democratic Party in their own image, [to] a party that can carry states like this,” said Al Cross, a veteran journalist and University of Kentucky professor.
“I think the Clintons believe they can carry Kentucky and I think that’s one reason why we’ll see them here again,” Cross added, also pointing to the Clintons’ longstanding friendship with Grimes’ father, Jerry Lundergan.
Clinton allies also insist that both Bill and Hillary have the sort of innate understanding of Southerners that has become increasingly rare within the Democratic Party. While more of the party’s base increasingly lives urban areas, they are among the few surrogates who can reach blue-collar and rural voters. [snip]
“You put a Democrat with 20 percent of the white vote in Mississippi and it becomes in play,” said Skip Rutherford, dean of the Clinton School of Public Service at the University of Arkansas and a longtime friend of the Clintons. [snip]
“I think she’s a good test case for how competitive the Democrats can be in the South, because she can pair her husband’s appeal in the more rural South and presumably draw support in the places where Obama did well,” Schaller said. “If she can’t start flipping states, then who is?“
Does any of that make sense? Prove how strong a candidate you will be in 2016 (against so far no opponent) by placing a losing bet on losers? That’s not very smart is it?
Like Sasquatch in a swamp, Michelle Obama is fur-ious. The White House dogs get a swift kick in the underbelly. Sleeves on dresses get viciously yanked. Sasquatch fear roams the halls. Angry.
It’s bound to get worse. Outside of the Whine House walls Michelle has to pretend to be OK. Publicly Michelle Obama has to smile. But this volcano is smouldering. It’s about to blow!
But the eruption will have to stifle itself until after the elections. Here’s what happened to set off Sasquatchian Micheelle:
Last week Michelle Obama campaigned for Bruce Braley in his race against that strong woman Joni Ernst. Michelle Obama was not happy. First she had to leave the Whine House for something other than a luxury vacation. Second, well, she had to work without pay which goes against her convictions as a Chicago native who thinks anytime she does something cash should cross her palms.
Michelle could barely unstick her eyelashes for this unwanted task. MOO continued to ostentatiously elevate Bruce Braley as a super terrific guy with super terrific credentials. But MOO knew so much about Braley she repeatedly called him “Bruce Bailey”.
MOO had to be roused from her comfy bed and expensive meals to campaign for Bruce Braley. That’s because Barack Obama is poison to campaigns. So MOO had to be herded out to the fields of Iowa to pretend and mispronounce.
Iowa Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley, who is currently locked in a tight Senate race, used a Congressional hearing about Ebola on Thursday to critique the Obama administration’s response to the outbreak.
“I am greatly concerned…that the administration did not act fast enough in responding in Texas,” Braley said.
“Is that the thanks I get?” screamed MOO. “I go campaign where there’s no arugula and Wagyu steaks then Bailey turns around to attack us???” MOO said as she kicked Barack.
“Reggie please”, er, “Honey please” replied Barack, “ya gotta understand, ya gotta help. Ya gotta calm down and just hang on for a few more weeks, please. Then you can take an extra long, extra luxurious vacation for the next two years. We just gotta get through this because a Republican senate might begin to investigate and then vacations are off.” “OK” MOO gritted out as she applied yet another kick to her Whine House dog.
Then it got worse.
Instead of MOO protection and Ebola Barack protection, Whine House spokesclown Josh defended Bailey, er Braley. Said spokesclown Josh:
“Well, Mr. Braley is somebody that has a reputation for being willing to speak truth to power whether they are in the same party as him or not,” Earnest replied, when asked by reporters about his comments. “I think that this is another indication that he is willing to do that.”
We gather the Whine House now agrees with the critics who denounce Ebola Barack for the Ebola response mess.
Democratic senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina was emphatic earlier this week that instituting a travel ban on those attempting to enter the United States from West African nations ravaged by the Ebola virus was “not going to help solve the problem.” Hagan’s Republican opponent, Thom Tillis, had been one of the first candidates for office to suggest the ban.
“That’s not going to help solve this problem,” said Hagan Wednesday when asked about Tillis’s position. “That’s not going to contain the epidemic that we see happening in Africa.”
But in a statement released Friday afternoon by her official Senate office, Hagan appears to have changed her mind.
“I have said for weeks that travel restrictions should be one part of a broad strategy to prevent Ebola from spreading in the U.S. and fighting it in Africa,” said Hagan in her statement. “I am calling on the Administration to temporarily ban the travel of non-U.S. citizens from the affected countries in West Africa. Although stopping the spread of this virus overseas will require a large, coordinated effort with the international community, a temporary travel ban is a prudent step the President can take to protect the American people, and I believe he should do so immediately.”
Hagen did not dig herself out of her freshly dug Ebola hole. Hagen followed her statement on the travel ban with praise for the CDC. Talk about stupid.
In defense of Ebola Obama and his Ebola policies Kay Hagen is in the process of political suicide. Why defend the bumblers at the CDC? And why call for a travel ban with such insincerity?
We Should Quarantine Everyone Coming From Countries With Ebola Outbreaks
An infectious-disease specialist says the time for half-measures is over [[snip]
Medicine can be a very humbling profession, and after more than 30 years of practicing infectious-disease medicine, I have learned that the “unanticipated” happens all too often, especially where microbes are involved. Over the last two weeks, the rosy scenarios painted by the Centers for Disease Control have lost their glow and started to unravel.
The fact that Ebola is transmitted by bodily fluids and not by the respiratory route provides no guarantee that there won’t be an outbreak in the U.S. or Europe. [snip]
There is a real possibility that the numbers will proliferate more rapidly than expected. Here are four problems that could contribute to this: [snip]
Quarantine is one tool that has been successfully employed in the past; currently, it is being underutilized. I would maintain that every individual traveling here from a country with an active outbreak—currently Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Nigeria—should be quarantined. [snip]
If the quarantine could be established prior to travel, then virtually no cases would be imported from West Africa.
Well, they’re not advocates for a “travel ban”. They just say let’s have concentration quarantine camps or something. That’s the ticket. That’s so much more politically correct.
Sam Stein’s Awful Argument Against Travel Ban: Helps America But Hurts West Africa
The last time we looked, Barack Obama was President of the United States, not of some other country. So if a ban on travel into the United States by people from Ebola-ravaged countries in West Africa would help America, isn’t it President Obama’s obligation to impose it, even if it might hurt those African countries?
On today’s Morning Joe, HuffPo’s Sam Stein twice acknowledged that the ban might “help America.” Yet he argued against the ban on the grounds that it would hurt West Africa and make it harder to track people fleeing those countries. You sensed Sam’s heart wasn’t entirely in it, and when he finished Joe Scarborough thanked him, saying he was going to hit Stein’s weak offering out of the park, as that SF Giants batter did last night in the ninth.
Scarborough’s counter was that there needs to be a two-pronged approach: a travel ban coupled with greatly-increased American efforts to help stop the epidemic in Africa, thus getting the disease under control and quelling panic that could send people fleeing abroad.
STEIN: The nexus of the problem with Ebola is not in America it’s in West Africa. And until you get the situation in West Africa under control we will never be actually out of the woods with respect to Ebola. So when you look at a travel ban you have to look at it holistically. What does it mean not just for America but for West Africa? Basically every health official–maybe with a few exceptions–has said that if you do a travel ban it may, in fact, help America but it will make the situation in West Africa a whole lot more complex and a whole lot worse. People will panic — [snip]
So yes, you might help the situation in America but the situation in West Africa is exacerbated and made worse. That’s the point.
SCARBOROUGH: Sam, I want to thank you —
STEIN: I tried my best.
It’s all a joke to Sammy. Why not tell the truth? Stop the apologies for Barack Obama. We can quarantine travel from West Africa and provide assistance to West Africa. Panic in this country will not help West Africa. Panic in this country will have adverse effects, such as anger, against West Africa.
Update: What should Ebola Obama have done? First impose a quarantine on travelers from West Africa to prevent the infected from travel to the United States. Second, coordinate with African nations to provide assistance to the stricken countries and individuals. Third, with the quarantine in place establish “protocols” and procedures to deal with any potential infection here. Fourth, secure the southern border to prevent other diseases from hitchhiking on random illegal aliens. Fourth, consider slowly lifting the quarantine once procedures against Ebola are in place and safety is assured. Put a total quarantine in place again if any breach occurs.
Ebola Obama shat on everything and everyone. This country is in trouble. We can see the explosive diarrhea of “Yes We Can” Midas-in-reverse Barack Obama everywhere these days.
Today we were going to apply some very “tough love” and some very tough language to Hillary Clinton and mercilessly mock Hillary Clinton 2016 because both are in need of corrective measures as only we can apply. But by now Hill and Bill must realize we are entirely correct and they are making some dumb moves. We’ve made our case clear for years now and yesterday’s comments section has a good discussion on our point of view.
After yesterday’s very clear confirmation of our view that Alison Grimes was and is a loser (the DSCC has given up on her and will not air ads on Grimy’s behalf) the news became worse for Grimes and today’s campaigner for Grimes – Hillary Clinton.
Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes is in deep water with progressives and immigration advocates after her campaign ran an ad calling undocumented immigrants “illegal aliens” and bizarrely accusing her opponent, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), of being soft on immigration.
So let’s tally the damage: (1) two days before Hillary campaigns with Alison Grimes this loser doubles down on the ridiculous claim that she is protecting the sanctity of the ballot forcing Hillary to join in on the charade or attack the silly claim; (2) the week before Alison Grimes dubbed herself a “Clinton Democrat” thereby dragging Hill and Bill further into the morass; (3) on the day before Hillary campaigns with Alison Grimes the DSCC announces the death of the Grimes campaign with the news that no more money is forthcoming from them thereby putting Hillary in a tougher spot; (4) on the day Hillary will campaign with Alison Grimes the crackpot left attacks Alison Grimes and Hillary is put in an even tougher set of spots having to denounce or not denounce the use of “illegal aliens” and or defend Mitch McConnell and attack the Grimes ad. Brilliant work Hillary and Hillary Clinton 2016!
We had also considered, now that we are three weeks out from the election, that today would be a good day to publish a poll analysis because we believe from here on out the polls do matter. But events once again find us in Hazmat suits looking at Ebola Obama’s explosive diarrhea everywhere.
Today’s news had the effect that made both our discussion of Hillary’s foolishness and a poll analysis moot.
For Hillary the good news is that so much bad news will relegate her disastrous visit to the back pages of discussion.
As to the polls and and analysis of same we think that the tide of bad news today will possibly make the bad news for Obama Dimocrats even worse and the good news for Republicans even better.
On the day that Duncan was admitted to the hospital with possible Ebola symptoms, he was “left for several hours, not in isolation, in an area where other patients were present,” union co-president Deborah Burger said.
Up to seven other patients were present in that area, the nurses said, according to the union.
A nursing supervisor faced resistance from hospital authorities when the supervisor demanded that Duncan be moved to an isolation unit, the nurses said, according to the union.
After expressing concerns that their necks were exposed even as they wore protective gear, the nurses were told to wrap their necks with medical tape, the union says.
As if he were Barack Obama, the Ebola Patient Zero had explosive diarrhea. The “experts” are in control and the nurses are in danger:
“The protocols that should have been in place in Dallas were not in place, and that those protocols are not in place anywhere in the United States as far as we can tell,” National Nurses United Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro said Tuesday night. “We’re deeply alarmed.” [snip]
“There was no one to pick up hazardous waste as it piled to the ceiling,” Burger said. [snip]
“This nurse was being blamed for not following protocols that did not exist. … The nurses in that hospital were very angry, and they decided to contact us,” DeMoro said.
The World Heath Organization says Ebola can incubate for more than 21 days not the lesser number of day as is widely presumed. There are now about 120 people being monitored to see if they have caught Ebola. This is the same Ebola that Ebola Obama said would not make a home in the United States.
Ebola has become the October surprise of this year’s midterm elections, with Democrats and Republicans doing battle over everything from restrictions on travel to the disposal of a victim’s remains. [snip]
The issue is particularly fraught for Democrats, given signs that President Obama’s dragging poll numbers could help Republicans take control of the Senate. Though Ebola is unlikely to move the needle in specific races, political strategists say it adds to the darkening public mood.
“The situation with Ebola and what’s going on in Syria and Iraq — all of this is creating a high level of anxiety among voters and a sense of uncertainty about the future,” said Democratic strategist Doug Thornell.
Ebola Obama’s explosive diarrhea is evident on Wall Street today. After years of free money for Wall Street and a market bloated with empty financial calories today we once again witness drops at times of more than 250 points. The rise in the markets can no longer hide the Ebola Obama Economy and the results is that the economy is dragging down the markets and the markets will further drag down the economy. Midas-in-reverse.
Lizzie Warren is not Cherokee as she has claimed in order to garner affirmative action benefits. Lizzie Warren is more Lizzie Borden. Or did she join ISIS? Here’s the American Horror Story: Lizzie Warren tale:
There we were on Sunday on our pink fainting couch. Our toes were separated by those soft foamy things whilst our toe nails were painted pink to match the decor and the tint on our fashion forward fashion statement spectacles. While thusly tended to we amused ourselves by devouring the comments on our favorite pink website. Then it was almost as if someone slapped us and pushed us down a flight of cocktails.
Lizzie Warren came out of her wigwam to decapitate Barack Obama. Oh dear. What will the children say?
This is what set us off:
EXCLUSIVE: Elizabeth Warren on Barack Obama: “They protected Wall Street. Not families who were losing their homes. Not people who lost their jobs. And it happened over and over and over”
“There has not been nearly enough change,” she tells Salon, taking on Obama failures, lobbyists, tuition. So 2016?
Say what??? Come again. Lizzie Warren took her ax and gave Obama forty whacks!
Lizzie??? Is that you? Did you really say such mean things about mess-iah? Have you too turned on Ebola Obama, a.k.a. OBOLA???
But President Obama had a golden opportunity when he came in to change the system and I just don’t feel like it has changed, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau aside. I mean, are the regulators now referring things to the Justice Department? Are the wheels turning again?
There has not been nearly enough change. Not nearly enough.[snip]
Let’s get back to the mindset of a lot of people. They look at you and they say, Elizabeth Warren, she’s part of the elite too. She was a professor at Harvard. [snip]
And I say this — it’s like I talk about in the book — this is personal for me. I graduated from a commuter college that cost $50 a semester in Texas.
Here’s the penultimate question: everything you’re saying are issues that have been important to me most of my adult life. In 2008, I thought I had a candidate who was going to address these things. Right? Barack Obama. Today, my friends and I are pretty disappointed with what he’s done. I wonder if you feel he has been forthright enough on these subjects. And I also wonder if you think that someone can take any of this stuff on without being president. You know, there are a lot of good politicians in America who have their heart in the right place. But they’re not the president. Well anyhow. You understand my frustration…
I understand your frustration, Tom and, actually, I talk about this in the book. When I think about the president, for me, it’s about both halves. If Barack Obama had not been president of the United States we would not have a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Period. [snip] At the same time, he picked his economic team and when the going got tough, his economic team picked Wall Street.
You might say, “always.” Just about every time they had to compromise, they compromised in the direction of Wall Street.
That’s right. They protected Wall Street. Not families who were losing their homes. Not people who lost their jobs. Not young people who were struggling to get an education. And it happened over and over and over. So I see both of those things and they both matter. [snip]
Look, there are two ways you can look at that. You can look at that and say, “Well, obviously, democracy doesn’t work.” Or the other way you can look at that is to say, “We have the opportunity. The moment is upon us.” We push back hard enough, we’re pushing for America’s agenda. Not an agenda to help a small group of people, an agenda to build a future for this country. And I believe we win. I believe it.
Looks like Lizzie Warren is about to run for something as the third Stalin term but with a five year plan. Such lovely words about high tuition and investment and all that but really…. Obama failed because he wasn’t crackpot enough??? That’s some campaign message.
We don’t want to use that word that starts with an “R” and ends with a “T” but what other word is there? Lizzie Borden, er, Warren, the great tribune fighting for the little people? Um… We don’t want to get serious or nutin’ but the Export-Import Bank gets a “yes” from populist Lizzie? Corporate Welfare Lizzie?
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren—a leading progressive populist, possible Democratic presidential candidate, self-proclaimed champion of the poor, and enemy of greedy corporations (not really, as you will see)—supports the Export-Import Bank.
That’s right: The woman best known for demonizing big businesses nevertheless wants to maintain an outlandishly generous subsidy package for them.
Warren’s support for Ex-Im was revealed Friday after the Heritage Foundation reached out to her regarding a possible partnership on the issue. Libertarians and Tea Party conservatives are noted opponents of the subsidy, which they see as crony capitalism that helps politically-connected businesses cheat the free market. Liberty-inclined Republicans are working with the left on a host of issues, including NSA spying and marijuana legalization—why not make common cause with Warren on corporatism as well?
Did we miss something? Did Lizzie Borden, er, Lizzie Warren chop off her head or sumting’? We’re confused. Why here is the great black HOPE denouncing the Export-Import Bank in 2008:
Obama in 2008 said the Export-Import Bank is “little more than a fund for corporate welfare.” Yet Lizzie B…Warren will fund this corporate welfare crony capitalism crap???????????????????????????
What will Barack say? Surely he will denounce this corrupt corporate welfare crony capitalism crone!
“But for some reason, right now the House Republicans have decided that we shouldn’t do this, which means that when American companies go overseas and they’re trying to close a sale on selling Boeing planes, for example, or a GE turbine or some other American product that has all kinds of subcontractors behind it and is creating all kinds of jobs and all of sorts of small businesses depend on that sale, and that American company’s going up against a German company or a Chinese company, and the Chinese and the American — the German company are providing financing and the American company isn’t, we may lose that sale,” Obama argued.
“Why — when did that become something that Republicans opposed? It’d be like me having a car dealership for Ford, and the Toyota dealership offers somebody financing and I don’t. We will lose business, and we’ll lose jobs if we don’t pass it,” Obama continued.
Consider the Export-Import Bank. This little-known relic of New Deal-style command-and-control economics represents cronyism at its worst. Ex-Im, which is up for congressional reauthorization this fall, provides a select few corporations with taxpayer-funded handouts meant to buoy their exports. As Veronique de Rugy, a senior research fellow with the Mercatus Center, explains, “Economists have long known that these kinds of export credit subsidies will never raise the overall level of trade; rather, they redistribute wealth away from unsubsidized American firms, employees, and consumers and direct it toward a tiny number of subsidy beneficiaries.” [snip]
A marketplace distorted by politicians doling out favors to select corporate interests creates all the wrong incentives. Instead of innovating to earn the business of average people, companies will focus on turning a profit through the acquisition of government subsidies. [snip]
Those concerned with issues of income inequality and the plight of the “99 percent” ought to be extremely disturbed by the transgressions of politicians who campaign on these issues and do the exact opposite in practice. When Barack Obama embraced a grassroots shtick in an effort to out-maneuver Hillary Clinton in 2008, he described the Ex-Im Bank as “little more than a fund for corporate welfare.” The president was right, of course, but now his rhetoric echoes those who act as if government-subsidized job creation doesn’t have a net negative impact on the small businesses trying to compete under the weight of an unjust corporatist system.
The same goes for the allegedly populist senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, who is known for railing against the excesses of corporate America. Her spokesperson recently stated, “Senator Warren believes that the Export-Import Bank helps create American jobs and spur economic growth.” So much for protecting the little guy, who’s trying to compete without a guaranteed taxpayer bailout and can’t afford the K Street lobbyists needed to acquire one.
Be prepared. Soon, Lizzie Warren will ax her words and say whatever is opposite Hillary Clinton about the Export Import Bank.
No doubt Lizzie is disappointed in the failed tin calf. Lots of the “yes we can” crowd now feign surprise at the notion that Obama was the “game-changer”. Lizzie is not alone in the doldrums:
“Now, there are some who question the scale of our ambitions, who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans,” the new president declared in his 2009 inaugural address to a 1.8 million-strong crowd on the Mall. “. . . What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them, that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long no longer apply.”
From pledging an Earth-moving transformation, Obama has been reduced to hitting singles and getting his lonely paragraph right . After drawing early comparisons to Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy all rolled into one, Obama has fallen so low that journalists wonder whether Jimmy Carter is not a more appropriate parallel. [snip]
But however historians and the public ultimately rate Obama, the greatness that he sought — and that was expected of him — will probably not be his. As early as 2011, in an extraordinary commentto “60 Minutes,” Obama believed otherwise: “I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, FDR and Lincoln — just in terms of what we’ve gotten done in modern history.” [snip]
But that kind of ambition requires a leader to see the world clearly as it is before trying to refashion it the way he wants it to be. Not reading the terrain accurately, failing to assess whether his administration had the muscle to negotiate it, and missing what the public expected and wanted can lead to unhappy consequences.
Whatever your judgment of Obama’s policies, there is a vast gap between the expectations he set for himself and his supporters and the realities of his presidency. Obama reached for greatness but has disappointed many of those who voted for him once or even twice because they so badly wanted to believe; those who thought he would end partisanship and change Washington when he could not; those who believed he could transform the country and America’s foreign policy, too, when he did not; and those who believed he would somehow become the Kennedy-like president of their dreams.
It’s cruel of us we know to remind the “yes we can” clods that “no you can’t” not with a treacherous boob. That same “yes we can” crowd now drools for the lady with the tomahawk or is it an ax or a machete to save them. Forget it girlfriends. We need to export this import.
President Obama went to the bank to cash a check and he didn’t have his ID. And the teller said you’ve got to prove who you are.
He said, “How should I do that?” She said the other day Phil Mickelson came in, he didn’t have his ID but he set up a little cup on the ground, took a golf ball, putted it right into that cup so they knew it was Phil Mickelson. They cashed his check.
And then Andre Agassi came in. And Andre Agassi didn’t have his ID either. He put a little target on the wall, took a tennis ball and racquet– hit it onto that target time. We knew that was Andre Agassi so we cashed his check.
And she said to him, “Is there anything you can do to prove who you are?” And Obama said, “I don’t have a clue.”
And she said, “Well, Mr. President, do you want your money in small bills or large bills.”
You can say the same about Lizzie Borden, er Lizzie Warren.
