Bruce Braley Slaps Michelle Obama

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”.

“Bruce Bailey” is so terrific that you must vote for Bruce Bailey” mooed MOO. “Bruce Bailey” is just what Iowa needs” MOO mooed. Not until a shout from the fields that the name is “Bruce Braley” did MOO use the right name. It was a very damaging moment. How do we know it was a damaging moment? Because the Washington Post ordered up a long, tedious, article to defend MOO and explain to us all how we form words and why MOO is really just so wonderful and just ignore her stupidity and blame cognitive processes for the fact that she did not even know the name of the candidate she shilled for. MOO also said he was a Marine when Braley has never been a Marine.

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.

To repay MOO after he milked her publicity value Bruce Bailey, er, Braley, paid her back with a sour note:



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.

EBOLA OBAMA 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.

Then it got even worse for MOO: she’s gonna have to campaign again for Bailey, er, Braley.

If Moo wants to continue to swallow those smooth Wagyu steaks and suck down that Champagne she must do the unthinkable: work.

Why? For one thing the Whine House Obamas do not want a Republican controlled Senate uncorking their thus far hidden scandals. Additionally, the Whine House Ebola Obamas have lost political support. Let’s face it, Obama is probably going to impose travel restrictions on West Africa. It’s just a matter of time and one more infection.

Already, in one high profile race, an Ebola flip-flop:

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?

Not only is Senator Kay Hagen a weasel. Senator Kay Hagen is a RACIST!:



While we’re speaking “truth to power” the “liberals” at New Republic are racists too:

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.

There do seem to be reasons to PANIC say some. Others are busy in full Ebola Obama protection mode and in disregard for what is best for the United States. Here’s Sam Stein in full American Horror Story clown costume:

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.

Ebola Obama’s response to this and every crisis is the same: SEND IN THE SPIN DOCTORS! You might as well send in the clowns.

Instead of a leader to coordinate the American response against Ebola. Instead of medical expert Obama hired a SPIN DOCTOR to fight EBOLA. It’s always a “communications” problem with this clown.


Ebola Obama

An Ebola Spin Doctor will not alter the political landscape. Obama Dimocrats will not be saved by a last minute change in the polls. It’s a much too late to stop the Republicans from a takeover of the Senate and a likely powerful wave election in the House. The Macaca Dimocrats are on their way out.

There’s not much MOO and her bovine husband can do at this point. All they can do is take the insults. Take the slaps in the face. Take all the slaps in the face that are so richly deserved.

The big slap in the face will hit in November.

  1. Ebola Obama on another front:

    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/10/colorado-health-care-cancellation-111991.html?hp=l1

    Health cancellations ripple in Colorado

    More than 22,000 Coloradans were informed in the past month that their health coverage will be canceled at the end of the year, state insurance authorities disclosed this week, a spike in cancellations already roiling the state’s fierce campaigns for the Senate and governor’s seat.

    Republican Rep. Cory Gardner, who’s running to unseat Democratic Sen. Mark Udall, pounced on the news as evidence that Obamacare is disrupting coverage for Coloradans and that Udall, who voted for the law, shares in the blame. [snip]

    The sudden surge, however, comes at an inopportune time for Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper and Democratic Sen. Mark Udall, both of whom are fighting for their political lives and have been staunch defenders of the health law. Hickenlooper was one of just more than a dozen governors to build a state-run Obamacare exchange last year.

    If you’re explaining, you’re losing.

  4. Another Ferguson account to add to the one we posted yesterday:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/18/us/ferguson-case-officer-is-said-to-cite-struggle.html?_r=0

    WASHINGTON — The police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., two months ago has told investigators that he was pinned in his vehicle and in fear for his life as he struggled over his gun with Mr. Brown, according to government officials briefed on the federal civil rights investigation into the matter.

    The officer, Darren Wilson, has told the authorities that during the scuffle, Mr. Brown reached for the gun. It was fired twice in the car, according to forensics tests performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The first bullet struck Mr. Brown in the arm; the second bullet missed.

    The forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform. Officer Wilson told the authorities that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck.

    This is the first public account of Officer Wilson’s testimony to investigators, but it does not explain why, after he emerged from his vehicle, he fired at Mr. Brown multiple times. [snip]

    In September, Officer Wilson appeared for four hours before a St. Louis County grand jury, which was convened to determine whether there is probable cause that he committed a crime. Legal experts have said that his decision to testify was surprising, given that it was not required by law. But the struggle in the car may prove to be a more influential piece of information for the grand jury, one that speaks to Officer Wilson’s state of mind, his feeling of vulnerability and his sense of heightened alert when he killed Mr. Brown.

    Police officers typically have wide latitude to use lethal force if they reasonably believe that they are in imminent danger.

    The officials said that while the federal investigation was continuing, the evidence so far did not support civil rights charges against Officer Wilson. To press charges, the Justice Department would need to clear a high bar, proving that Officer Wilson willfully violated Mr. Brown’s civil rights when he shot him.

    The account of Officer Wilson’s version of events did not come from the Ferguson Police Department or from officials whose activities are being investigated as part of the civil rights inquiry. [snip]

    Few witnesses had perfect vantage points for the fight in the car, which occurred just after noon on Aug. 9. [snip]

    The officials briefed on the case said the forensic evidence gathered in the car lent credence to Officer Wilson’s version of events.
    According to his account, he was trying to leave his vehicle when Mr. Brown pushed him back in. Once inside the S.U.V., the two began to fight, Officer Wilson told investigators, and he removed his gun from the holster on his right hip.

    Chief Jon Belmar of the St. Louis County Police Department has said in interviews that Officer Wilson was “pushed back into the car” by Mr. Brown and “physically assaulted.” The department is conducting the local investigation into Mr. Brown’s death.

  5. …not to beat a dead horse…but guess where MO was relegated to MOO today…

    …that’s right…Miss MO was here in South Florida (after a stop in Orlando) to sing the praises of…(drumbeat) Charlie Crist, the “Democrat” running for Governor…she loves her Charlie Crist here in South Florida…

    …hope she gets his ‘party affiliation’ right…

    I think i saw him wearing a shocking pink polo type shirt….

  6. Braley’s reaction to Michelle’s sarcastic and nasty “acting out” episode was fair. Payback is a female dog. Since her dancing turnip video there has been some question about her level of maturity, intelligence, and emotional stability. Watching her passive aggressive shenanigans you can see she is thinking “you ain’t the boss of me!” or some other childish rationalization for her behavior. If she is obnoxious enough no one will ask her to do anything. This is the mentality of a tween.

    “What does the new czar know about Ebola?” CNN’s Jim Acosta asked White House Press Sec. Josh Earnest.

    “The president again, wanted somebody who could serve in a coordinating function to manage the implementation of our whole government approach to our Ebola situation,” Earnest replied, answering Acosta’s question indirectly.

    http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/390577/dems-west-virginia-senate-candidate-wont-mention-obama-name-when-asked-whom-she-voted

    Citing Grimes’s mishaps, the Charleston Daily Mail editorial board asked during a candidates’ forum whether the candidates would be willing to say whom they last supported for president. Republican Shelley Moore Capito and the Libertarian, Constitution, and Mountain party candidates volunteered the information, responding with their respective party’s presidential nominee.

    Tennant would only say she “voted for the Democratic party” before immediately citing her objections to the president and Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy. She then launched in to a long explanation that evolved in to a stump speech about how she will stand up for West Virginians regardless of party.

  12. Tragic. The perils of Ebola ObamaCare via the New York Times:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/18/us/unable-to-meet-the-deductible-or-the-doctor.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&_r=1

    Unable to Meet the Deductible or the Doctor

    Patricia Wanderlich got insurance through the Affordable Care Act this year, and with good reason: She suffered a brain hemorrhage in 2011, spending weeks in a hospital intensive care unit, and has a second, smaller aneurysm that needs monitoring.

    But her new plan has a $6,000 annual deductible, meaning that Ms. Wanderlich, who works part time at a landscaping company outside Chicago, has to pay for most of her medical services up to that amount. She is skipping this year’s brain scan and hoping for the best.

    “To spend thousands of dollars just making sure it hasn’t grown?” said Ms. Wanderlich, 61. “I don’t have that money.

    About 7.3 million Americans are enrolled in private coverage through the Affordable Care Act marketplaces, and more than 80 percent qualified for federal subsidies to help with the cost of their monthly premiums. But many are still on the hook for deductibles that can top $5,000 for individuals and $10,000 for families — the trade-off, insurers say, for keeping premiums for the marketplace plans relatively low. The result is that some people — no firm data exists on how many — say they hesitate to use their new insurance because of the high out-of-pocket costs.

    Insurers must cover certain preventive services, like immunizations, cholesterol checks and screening for breast and colon cancer, at no cost to the consumer if the provider is in their network. But for other services and items, like prescription drugs, marketplace customers often have to meet their deductible before insurance starts to help.

    While high-deductible plans cover most of the costs of severe illnesses and lengthy hospital stays, protecting against catastrophic debt, those plans may compel people to forgo routine care that could prevent bigger, longer-term health issues, according to experts and research.

    They will cause some people to not get care they should get,” Katherine Hempstead, who directs research on health insurance coverage at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, said of high-deductible marketplace plans. “Unfortunately, the people who are attracted to the lower premiums tend to be the ones who are going to have the most trouble coming up with all the cost-sharing if in fact they want to use their health insurance.”

    Deductibles for the most popular health plans sold through the new marketplaces are higher than those commonly found in employer-sponsored health plans, according to Margaret A. Nowak, the research director of Breakaway Policy Strategies, a health care consulting company. A survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that the average deductible for individual coverage in employer-sponsored plans was $1,217 this year.

    In comparison, the average deductible for a bronze plan on the exchange — the least expensive coverage — was $5,081 for an individual and $10,386 for a family, according to HealthPocket, a consulting firm. Silver plans, which were the most popular option this year, had average deductibles of $2,907 for an individual and $6,078 for a family. [snip]

    The website for the federal insurance marketplace serving 36 states, HealthCare.gov, strongly encourages consumers to focus on premiums: When consumers search for a plan online, the results are ranked by premium price, with plans offering the lowest premiums listed first.

    But insurance plans with lower premiums generally have higher deductibles. [snip]

    Mark Yuschak, 57, of Jackson, N.J., said he had a silver plan with an annual deductible of $3,000. He discovered its limits in March.

    “My wife had an incident, a digestive disorder, and we had to go to the emergency room of a hospital in Freehold, N.J.,” Mr. Yuschak said. “We presented our insurance card and filled out all the forms. They told us, ‘You don’t have a co-payment, you’re free to go.’ ”

    Later, though, they received a bill “that could choke a horse,” Mr. Yuschak said — for more than $1,000. “Our insurance wouldn’t cover any of it because we had not met our deductible.”

    Carol Payne, a respiratory therapist in Gilbert, Ariz., signed up through HealthCare.gov for a Blue Cross Blue Shield plan with a $6,000 deductible. She pays $91 toward her monthly premium and gets a subsidy of $353 to cover the rest. [snip]

    “I’m just doing what I can to keep myself healthy,” she added. “I mean, $6,000 — do they think I’ve just got that under my mattress?”

    People with low incomes may qualify for subsidies that reduce their deductibles, co-payments and other out-of-pocket costs. The assistance is available to people with incomes from 100 percent to 250 percent of the poverty level (from $23,550 to $58,875 for a family of four), but only if they choose a silver plan. [snip]

    Dr. Rebecca Love, of Moab, Utah, is well on her way to passing that limit. Dr. Love, 63, who has degenerative arthritis and a host of other health problems, pays $422 a month in premiums for a plan that has a deductible of $6,000. But she has already paid more than $6,000 in medical costs this year that did not count toward her deductible because the doctors and hospitals — more than 100 miles away in Grand Junction, Colo. — were not in her network.

    To see certain specialists in her network, Dr. Love said, she would have had to travel to Salt Lake City, which is much farther away and requires driving through a treacherous mountain pass.[snip]

    “A $6,000 deductible — that’s just staggering,” she said. “I never thought I’d say this, but how many minutes until I get Medicare?”

    The New York Times discovers what we wrote about in 2009.

  13. I found an article which contradicts everything I have assumed about Ed Klein. It is from a progressive rag called Business Insider whose name is deceptively similar to a legitimate publication. This rag which founded by a Wall Street progressive of the usual kind–son of a Manhattan banker, Exner Academy, Yale. Blogett no relation to the British line that gave us Richard the Lionhearted and his ilk. Or if he is, then somewhere in his pedigree past a bitch jumped over the wall. In any event, this prick has all the elitist credentials which comprise the golden handshake to be a player of any kind in big media and its many offshoots. All the boxes are checked–only they are the wrong boxes. The ones that that give us unscrupulous lawyers, amoral apparatchiks and political hacks whose only area of expertise is manipulating the electoral and governmental systems and getting rich by doing so–as Michael Walsh pointed out. Nevertheless, his view on Ed Klein is the opposite of mine, and in line with some of you who do not share my assessment. This means that I could be wrong and where Blodgett is concerned the blind pig may have managed to find an acorn, in spite of old Eli Yale.

    Glad to see them unwilling to killed, raped and enslaved. The pictures of the slaughters over there give me nightmares. Women will go to war to defend the homeland. Men will go to war to go to war. Like ISIS.

    I guess they all know by now, it is kill or be killed. Ofuctard will not send in the troops over there. I so loathe that scumball.

    Who cares whether the ISIS and Ebola are intent or incompetence, it is on him.

    I wonder if it occurs to African Americans that his Ebola/ISIS legacy will reflect on them?

  15. I just received my health care renewal. A 35% increase! I called up and the rep said it was the increased costs under the ACA . I don’t know how people without money can afford good health care.

    They call him “No Drama Obama”, and fall to their knees

    Unflappable to a fault.

    They think this is because he is brilliant, has got the situation in hand, and his cool hand luke.

    They are seldom right about anything—but never in doubt.

    The reason he does not sweat is because he does not give a rat’t ass about anyone but himself.

    His appointment of this Klain as the Ebola Czar is a perfect example.

    Klain is a party hack of the lowest order–an enabler of the Soldanya scandal.

    He has no experience dealing with Ebola. Others do, like Dr. Bob Arnot whom I mentioned.

    He has no medical background. Many other do, but not this apartnecik.

    The only reason he is there is to protect Obama, by providing an additional layer of protection from accountability, and to spin the facts.

    For Obama, it is not about controlling the epidemic. It is about controlling the political message.

    Exactly!! It’s probably better for this country that O isn’t all that into governing, work, America, the presidency, etc., If he did give enough of a damn about anything to educate himself about it, expend energy on it, work for it, care about it, America would likely not be the target of his efforts. His focus would be elsewhere, or they would be directed at teaching America a lesson and/or even more radically “transforming” the country.

    He probably has those goals in mind as he pretends to govern, but lacking the drive and the propensity for hard work, and unable to muster up one damn to give his efforts and initiatives are week and poorly thought out and executed. I guess that’s one thing for which we should grateful.

  19. The big media beloved messiah is always stealing lines from others without attribution. At one time the was pilfering quotations from little Deval Patrick the cute cuddly client of Axelgrease before he took on Obama. At other times, young punks like Sam Stein and that little drunk Faber have taken on the role of supplying throw away lines to hump at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. So why not me. Frankly, I have been struggling to find the words to defend his insane refusal to institute a travel ban. The best I have been able to come up with, and it must be said with the right fire and brimstone which Obama is fully capable of–his flashing eyes his floating hair weave a circle round him thrice for he on honeydew has fed and drunk the milk of paradise. So why not the words of Gunnery Sargent Major Dan Daley USMC, who was twice awarded the Medal of Honor, at the Battle of Belleau Woods in World War I, which is one of the three most important battles in Marine Corp history. Daley to his marines then and Obama to the American People now, who believe he is putting their lives at risk by his insane policy:

    “Come on you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?” Hours later, the corps sustained heavy casualties–31 officers and 1056 marines. However they earned the respect of the Germans who called them devil dogs. Is Obama a devil dog–or just a bitch? Is a cat’s ass punched or bored. Some questions are imponderable.

    GOP donor behind Americans for Shared Prosperity pitches ‘Bold Agenda’ for Republicans. By Jackie Kucinich October 19 (with video)
    Frustrated with Republicans’ lack of a comprehensive policy agenda, a multimillionaire GOP donor is pitching his own, using a political action committee to publicize a platform based on several Republican positions. “Since Republicans are on the precipice of possible winning a Senate majority there has not been an articulated governing vision of specific steps to meet Americans needs,” John Jordan, a California-based winery owner and sometimes political operation starter, said in an interview with The Washington Post. “I was waiting for Republican leadership to do it.” Jordan’s 11-point policy prescription for the GOP doesn’t break new ground, but focuses on what Jordan describes as a legislative agenda that could potentially make it through Congress with bipartisan support. To promote the agenda, Jordan will begin running ads based on it through his new super PAC, Bold Agenda PAC. The ad features a women in her kitchen, talking directly to the camera about the importance of Republicans promoting ideas, such as corporate tax breaks for companies who bring jobs back from overseas, ending Common Core, securing the border and making birth control available over-the-counter. Jordan estimated the buy would be “just under” seven figures.
    The ad will begin running nationally on television and online Sunday and will continue through the week. Snip

    President Obama is hitting the links on Saturday, joined by ESPN commentator Tony Kornheiser after a hectic week for the White House in response to the Ebola outbreak.

    The president and Kornheiser are golfing at Fort Belvoir in Virginia, according to a White House pool report.

    The duo, who have golfed together atleast four times in the past five months, are joined by staffers Joe Paulsen and Marvin Nicholson.

  24. WE SAW IT WITH WORTHLESS DANNY WURTHEL–

    THAT IVY LEAGUE OBAMA LOON

    WHO HEADED THE IRS FOR ONE BRIEF

    AND NOT SO SHINING MOMENT.

    WHEN HE DENIED IRS CORRUPTION

    KRAUTHAMMER CALLED IT WORD SALAD

    I CALL IT DOUBLETALK

    AND SOPHISTRY

    RIGHT OUT OF GEORGE ORWELL

    BUT DANNY WORTHLESS WAS NOT ALONE

    WE SAW IT WITH HIS SUCCESSOR

    THAT BALD HEADED EXTRA TERRESTIAL

    WHO NOW HOLDS THAT SAME POSITION

    AND TESTIFIES EVASIVELY BEFOR CONGRESS

    ON THE MISSING EMAILS

    PURE SOPHISTRY

    WE SAW IT WITH HARF AND PATKI AT STATE IN RE. ISIS

    MORE DOUBLESPEAK

    WE SAW IT WITH HOLDER ON FAST AND FURIOUS AND OTHER SCANDALS

    DOUBLESPEAK WITH EARNED HIM A CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS CITATION

    AND WE SEE IT WITH THE LIAR IN CHIEF

    EVERYTHING THAT COMES OUT OF HIS MOUTH IS JUST THAT

    WHICH IS WHY HE IS NOT WORTH LISTENING TO

    IT SHOWS HOW MUCH THIS ADMINISTRATION HOLDS

    THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HOLD DEGREES FROM HARVARD

    IN UTTER CONTEMPT

    EVEN AS THEY THEMSELVES DESTROY THE COUNTRY

    PARTLY THROUGH NEGLIGENCE AND PARTLY BE DESIGN

    NOONAN GETS IT HALF RIGHT

    THE QUESTION SHE ASKS IS

    WHO DO THEY THINK WE ARE?

    CHILDREN?

    BUT SHE NEGLECTS TO MENTION

    THE EVEN MORE PRESSING QUESTION

    WHO THE FUCK DO THE THINK THEY ARE

    “ON WHAT MEAT HATH CAESAR FED THAT HE HAS GROWN SO GREAT?’—JULIUS CAESAR

    SORRY, A HARVARD DEGREE IS NOT AN AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE TO INCOMPETENCE

    NOR A LICENSE TO DESTROY THIS NATION UNDER THE PRETEXT OF TRANSFORMING IT

    YOU WOULD HAVE BETTER LUCK CHANGING THE ENGINE OF A 747 IN MID FLIGHT

    THAN DOING THAT SUCCESSFULLY

    AND NO AMOUNT OF MANCHURIAN DOUBLETALK CAN CHANGE THAT.

    (AND FUCK WAXMAN–THAT LITTLE COCKSUCKER IS RIGHT OUT OF A BAD MARX BROTHERS SKIT)

    ———————-

    In testimony before Congress Thursday, Dr. Frieden was not much more straightforward. His answers often sound like filibusters: long, rolling paragraphs of benign assertion, advertising slogans—“We know how to stop Ebola,” “Our focus is protecting people”—occasionally extraneous data, and testimony to the excellence of our health-care professionals.

    It is my impression that everyone who speaks for the government on this issue has been instructed to imagine his audience as anxious children. It feels like how the pediatrician talks to the child, not the parents. It’s as if they’ve been told: “Talk, talk, talk, but don’t say anything. Clarity is the enemy.”

    The language of government now is word-spew.

    Dr. Frieden did not explain his or the government’s thinking on the reasons for opposition to a travel ban. On the other hand, he noted that the government will consider all options in stopping the virus from spreading here, so perhaps that marks the beginning of a possible concession.

    It is one thing that Dr. Frieden, and those who are presumably making the big decisions, have been so far incapable of making a believable and compelling case for not instituting a ban. A separate issue is how poor a decision it is. To call it childish would be unfair to children. In fact, if you had a group of 11-year-olds, they would surely have a superior answer to the question: “Sick people are coming through the door of the house, and we are not sure how to make them well. Meanwhile they are starting to make us sick, too. What is the first thing to do?”

    The children would reply: “Close the door.” One would add: “Just for a while, while you figure out how to treat everyone getting sick.” Another might say: “And keep going outside the door in protective clothing with medical help.” Eleven-year-olds would get this one right without a lot of struggle.

    If we don’t momentarily close the door to citizens of the affected nations, it is certain that more cases will come into the U.S. It is hard to see how that helps anyone. Closing the door would be no guarantee of safety—nothing is guaranteed, and the world is porous. But it would reduce risk and likelihood, which itself is worthwhile.

    Africa, by the way, seems to understand this. The Associated Press on Thursday reported the continent’s health-care officials had limited the threat to only five countries with the help of border controls, travel restrictions, and aggressive and sophisticated tracking.

    All of which returns me to my thoughts the past few weeks. Back then I’d hear the official wordage that doesn’t amount to a logical thought, and the unspoken air of “We don’t want to panic you savages,” and I’d look at various public officials and muse: “Who do you think you are?”

    Now I think, “Who do they think we are?”

    Does the government think if America is made to feel safer, she will forget the needs of the Ebola nations? But Americans, more than anyone else, are the volunteers, altruists and in a few cases saints who go to the Ebola nations to help. And they were doing it long before the Western media was talking about the disease, and long before America was experiencing it.

    At the Ebola hearings Thursday, Rep. Henry Waxman (D., Calif.) said, I guess to the American people: “Don’t panic.” No one’s panicking—except perhaps the administration, which might explain its decisions.

    Is it always the most frightened people who run around telling others to calm down?

  25. One of the many fine points made by the estimable Tom Sowell is that the complexities of the world today, and our understanding of it, make it necessary to rely on the advice of experts, and when doing so, the advice of specialists is preferable to that of generalists, in many instances. Obama is a self proclaimed expert on every subject. How do we know? He tells us this, and so does big media. He is, in short, the Delphic Oracle. Proof of the same is elusive, so we have to take this as revealed truth rather than empirical truth. But he is not a specialist, and that is the problem with a Harvard degree. Those who have one are inclined to believe that they are smarter than anyone else on every subject. When Obama puts these kind of people in positions of power, they must learn to confine themselves to their area of supposed expertise and not assume that it extends beyond the scope of their discipline. And then, they must rely on more than a Harvard degree to prove that they are marginally competent in the role they occupy. Too often that is not the case.

  26. A little over two weeks until the election. After that, America will get to meet the REAL Barack Hussein Obama. I, for one will vote straight Republican as a protest vote against the poisonous POTUS, with the exception of Charlie Crist. That is because Rick Scott is more evil than Obama. He just has less authority over the nation, but too much over me.

  27. I did not read the article.

    Why would I?

    Its in the NYT.

    All THEY say is fit to print

    Is just left wind polemics.

    Black turn out is seen as critical to retaining the senate.

    So they say.

    No doubt they got this directly from the DNC.

    Its why Bo said this election was about his policies.

    I suppose it is too much to expect the people he hopes to turn out to determine for themselves

    Whether those policies are good for them.

    But is the statement true on its face.

    Is black turnout really the key in those red states with democratic senators?

    Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, etc.

    Is it?

    Or is this just more NYT tripe channeling the DNC.

    I think it is the latter.

  28. Rick Perry had better listen and heed this advice. It is all true.

    One Last Hurrah for Texas Voter ID

    Overnight the Supreme Court refused to reverse the stay imposed by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and thus allowed voter ID to be required in the midterm election in Texas. This is procedural delay based on the idea that election rules shouldn’t change at the last second.

    So voter ID gets one last hurrah in Texas.

    But election integrity advocates shouldn’t celebrate too much. Texas Voter ID is doomed. After this next election, it is prohibited from being used.

    Nor should much faith be placed in any appeal. The plaintiffs won on two separate theories under the Voting Rights Act, and both are fatal to the law. First, the court ruled that Texas voter ID was enacted with a discriminatory intent. That finding alone dooms the law. And here’s the bad news: the chances of that finding being overturned are next to zero. Proving discriminatory intent isn’t easy, but the court said the plaintiffs did it. That’s a fact-based determination and will not be overturned unless it is clearly erroneous. Appeals courts are deferential to lower courts on fact findings. Why? Because lower courts conduct the trial. Lower courts see the witnesses, even if they sweat and squirm. Appeals judges sitting in New Orleans can’t size up the witnesses like the lower court judge in Corpus Christi.

    Second, Texas also lost on the results prong under the Voting Rights Act. The plaintiffs pushed an outlandish theory for sure, and one that might get overturned on appeal. They pressed the novel idea that any statistical disparity of the impact of voter ID dooms the law. If blacks have ID less often than whites, game over. The problem is that the courts have so far rejected that idea. You can be sure the Supreme Court will also.

    But so what? The intent finding stands and that means that the Texas law likely gets one last hurrah in two weeks.

    What’s the solution? For Texas to pass a new ID law lickety split. A new law can be in place within a few days of the Texas legislature convening in January. Pass something identical to the law approved in South Carolina or Georgia, and it’s lights out for the foes of election integrity.

  29. I do not know why AA’s have supported Obola as long as they have, except that they do experience discrimination and are sure that is a factor in BO’s problems. But he has so abused them, that their continued support would only demonstrate that they cannot choose good leaders. Are they willing to appear like battered women returning to their spouse? The only demographic Obola has promoted are the Muslims. And he has now shown them as ISIS.

    The wishes Obola has granted have all turned out like something from The Monkey’s Paw.

    He is a Poisonous POTUS.

  30. Unable to Meet the Deductible or the Doctor

    What Obamacare looks like: Expensive insurance and no care.

    No Surprise…..

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/18/us/unable-to-meet-the-deductible-or-the-doctor.html?smid=tw-share&_r=0

    Patricia Wanderlich got insurance through the Affordable Care Act this year, and with good reason: She suffered a brain hemorrhage in 2011, spending weeks in a hospital intensive care unit, and has a second, smaller aneurysm that needs monitoring.

    But her new plan has a $6,000 annual deductible, meaning that Ms. Wanderlich, who works part time at a landscaping company outside Chicago, has to pay for most of her medical services up to that amount. She is skipping this year’s brain scan and hoping for the best.

    “To spend thousands of dollars just making sure it hasn’t grown?” said Ms. Wanderlich, 61. “I don’t have that money.”

    About 7.3 million Americans are enrolled in private coverage through the Affordable Care Act marketplaces, and more than 80 percent qualified for federal subsidies to help with the cost of their monthly premiums. But many are still on the hook for deductibles that can top $5,000 for individuals and $10,000 for families — the trade-off, insurers say, for keeping premiums for the marketplace plans relatively low. The result is that some people — no firm data exists on how many — say they hesitate to use their new insurance because of the high out-of-pocket costs.

    Insurers must cover certain preventive services, like immunizations, cholesterol checks and screening for breast and colon cancer, at no cost to the consumer if the provider is in their network. But for other services and items, like prescription drugs, marketplace customers often have to meet their deductible before insurance starts to help.

    While high-deductible plans cover most of the costs of severe illnesses and lengthy hospital stays, protecting against catastrophic debt, those plans may compel people to forgo routine care that could prevent bigger, longer-term health issues, according to experts and research.

    “They will cause some people to not get care they should get,” Katherine Hempstead, who directs research on health insurance coverage at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, said of high-deductible marketplace plans. “Unfortunately, the people who are attracted to the lower premiums tend to be the ones who are going to have the most trouble coming up with all the cost-sharing if in fact they want to use their health insurance.”

    Obamacare is screwing everybody.

    New name for Ebola Obama: King Putt. Here’s why:
    _________________________

    His entire tenure as PoTUS has been one lousy putt after another one. 👿

  32. After that disgusting performance by that case of arrested development oh you are so handsome Gwenneth etc.

    I tried to think of a more respectable way to pay homage to the big media beloved messiah

    Enter Irving Berlin

    He had a long and illustrious career

    Which began on Tin Pan Alley

    And ended on Fifth Avenue

    Many of us remember him for the song Easter Parade

    Which was made into a movie starring Judy Garland and Fred Astaire

    But few of us know that the melody was a re tread of an earlier composition

    Which he did during World War I

    When George Cohan and Vaudville were all the rage–Over There, Yankee Doodle Dandy, You’re A Grand Old Flag

    The name of that original song by Berlin was not Easter Parade

    It was Smile and Show Your Dimple—for a young lady who beau is shipping out to the trenches of World War I

    The Spanish Flu, mustard gas, and all the other things you might expect from Obama when he says don’t panic

    When that rum ridden debut tramp Gwen sobers up perhaps she should serenade the big media beloved messiah with this tune

    But in his case it would not be a dimple, not even a pimple, but a big ugly wart.

    It would help him keep his dauber up–whatever that means

    Far better she do that than make a complete ass of herself telling Him a lie–that he is handsome

    Here’s that great Vaudvillian Sam Ash doing the honors

    So play it again Sam, for the benefit of that ditzy broad and her fellow 1 percenters

  33. How would you like to be Gwenneth’s press agent right now?

    I wouldn’t–not for all the tea in china

    Correction: not for all the US jobs Obama has shipped out to China

    I knew if I tried long enough I would get that right

    I read in one of those Hollywood magazines which set next to the c-mode in public restrooms

    Except the ones Larry Craig honors with his presence

    That to give her greater cache, her agent is quietly circulating the rumor that she is not well liked

    Her servants would gladly confirm this

    But this was supposed to be subtle and controlled

    Not this inane explosion of manure about Obama

    Which belongs in a Marx Brothers skit

    And will surely cement her image as not well liked

    More so than her agent would like

    If he had known she would say that

    I expect he would have kept his mouth shut.

  34. Lawrence Welk was another great patriot, and the one who informed me of Berlin’s incredible gift to America. Wish I could find the show clip of that, but will settle for a CNN piece:
    …In 1938, the vocalist Kate Smith was looking for a song to sing on her coast-to-coast CBS radio program to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Armistice Day. She asked Berlin if he would write something for her. He remembered a song he had begun years before, and had discarded. He brought it out and went back to work on it. Thus it was that, on the CBS radio network one November night, Kate Smith delivered the first public performance of Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America.”
    The acclaim was immediate and electrifying. The world was on the verge of a terrible new war; all over the United States, people heard Berlin’s song and took it to their hearts.
    He understood what a valuable property he had on his hands.
    And he quietly made a firm decision. He never wanted to make a penny from it. snip
    http://www.cnn.com/2011/12/11/opinion/greene-berlin/

  35. How is that even possible…

    Madrid hospital says a blood test has indicated the Spanish nurse who was infected with ebola has been cleared of all traces of the virus

  36. Busy week ahead for Hillary Clinton:

    Mon: CA for fundraisers;
    Tues: CO for Udall;
    Fri: MA for Coakley, RI for Raimondo;
    Sat: NC for Hagan

  37. Apparently people are just walking out on Obama as soon as he started to speak in Maryland and not just a few, streaming out.

    People just walking out and people shouting at him about immigration……

    Also missing is the deliberate absence of his “seal” on the podium.

  38. Unfortunately no matter what, I don’t think even the great Clintons can save Dems this cycle…Obama and “his” dem party are toxic.

  39. LOL….Obamacult is dead……..

    Maryland : Saw O, don’t want to hear speech: “by the time he was about 10 mins in there was a traffic jam next to pool’s tables as folks tried to exit”

  40. This was the director of CDC in his prior job. . . .

    Dr. Thomas Frieden

    Commissioner, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene

    If you’re searching for a powerful public official driven by unbridled activist zealotry, look no further than the Big Apple’s health czar Thomas R. Frieden. In January 2002, Frieden took the helm of New York City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOH), which has an annual budget of over $1.6 billion and more than 6,000 staff. In the intervening years he’s taken previously inconceivable steps towards tracking and controlling what New Yorkers — and, by extension, all Americans — get to do with their bodies. (The absurdly Orwellian undertones of the term “Mental Hygiene” haven’t been lost on us; we eagerly await city-sponsored distributions of mind floss and “Thought Purity” kits.)

    Frieden doesn’t simply blur the line between public and private health; he barely recognizes its existence. He famously told the Financial Times that “when anyone dies at an early age from a preventable cause in New York City, it’s my fault.” What constitutes a “preventable cause” for Frieden? Essentially any behavior that he personally disapproves of, including: eating fatty foods, smoking (anywhere), “insufficient” breast-feeding, and using birth control that isn’t city-approved.

    Super Czar

    Traditionally, public health has been confined to the containment and eradication of communicable diseases. But Frieden has publicly and perhaps permanently expanded that purview to cover any potentially risky behavior, even when an individual choice has no effect on the well-being of others. That has led to, as the New York Post puts it, “a nanny state on steroids.”

    Frieden spearheaded the creation of an intrusive surveillance program for the city’s 530,000 diabetics. The results from routine medical examinations for all diabetics are now automatically forwarded to the DOH, and, along with name, date of birth and address, permanently recorded in a registry open to city bureaucrats. For diabetics who are found to have “elevated” glucose levels, the DOH floods their homes with (unwanted) medical materials and warning letters, and notifies their physicians of their test results.

    In early 2007, Frieden launched a campaign to encourage people to drink tap water; city employees were disbursed throughout the city to hand out empty water bottles. (The fact that residents need to be assured of the safety of basic public works is, in and of itself, probably an indicator of more pertinent problems.)

    Frieden seems to take a salacious delight in pushing public policy into people’s bedrooms. The reception room of his office sports a bowl of free condoms — unique among the city’s health officials. He’s commissioned — with taxpayer dollars — New York-themed prophylaxes that, per his suggestion, feature a map of the Manhattan subway system. And, under his tenure, the DOH has spent over $2 million dollars to harangue new moms into breast-feeding their children for at least 6 months — a city-established “health limit” that essentially ignores the unique needs of individual women and their children.

    Frieden spawned a publicity bonanza in January 2007 when he announced that DOH scientists had uncovered a HIV “supervirus” — a drug-resistant strain of the deadly disease that can lead to full-blown AIDS in less than three months. But Frieden’s proclamation — and the ensuring media hysteria — turned out to be premature. Upon further testing, the strain did respond to treatments and was confined to a single person.

    In December 2006, the DOH approved a requirement that restaurants print calorie-counts on menus and menu boards. In a cruel twist of irony, though, the law only covers restaurants that already provide the information in another format; so, in effect, it punishes the very behavior it’s aimed at encouraging. Unsurprisingly, a number of restaurants have stopped offering calorie information entirely since the requisite menu notifications are too expensive or cumbersome.

    Of course, the piece-de-resistance of Frieden’s reign is his successful campaign to ban the use of trans fat — an artificial food ingredient found mostly in margarine, pastries, and fried foods — in all of the city’s restaurants. In the months leading up to the ban’s December 2006 approval by the city council, Frieden took every opportunity to brand trans fats as a “dangerous” and “unnecessary” part of the city’s food supply.

    Unsurprisingly, the reality of the situation is a bit more complex. Some businesses — especially smaller outfits — have struggled to find a replacement that’s just as cheap as trans fat without sacrificing food quality. Case in point: O’Neil Whyte, a baker in Harlem, told The New York Times in December 2006 that “things without trans fat are harder to get and more expensive.”

    What’s more, a widely-touted justification for the ban — fighting obesity — is specious at best. Trans fat bears almost no relationship with rising obesity rates, and isn’t acutely dangerous like, say, arsenic or lead. Plus, trans fat’s natural substitutes aren’t any healthier, according to not only the National Academy of Sciences, but also the federal Department of Health and Human Services and the Food and Drug Administration. The American Heart Association has warned that the trans fat ban has the “potential for unintended and adverse consequences, such as restaurants returning to the use of oils high in saturated or animal-based fat if healthier oils are in short supply.”

    Unfortunately, health activists nationwide took inspiration from Frieden’s trans fat crusade. As of August 2007, over two dozen state and city legislatures are considering copycat bans of their own.

    Considering the national embarrassment brought on New York City in early 2007 by a widely publicized video of rats scurrying around fast food restaurants just a few days after a city health inspection, you’d think that Frieden might have more pressing priorities than themed condoms and culinary witch hunts. But he goes where the headlines are, and more often that not that means shirking sound science for the sake of a news hook.

    This is a hail Mary for all of those (former) senators/candidates.

    Just going through the motions.

  42. Frieden is an expert on transfats, themed condums, culinary witch hunts, and talking down to the American People.

    Frieden is not an expert on Ebola however.

  43. His rare appearance is in a place where the Democrat is 11 points ahead, and the reactions he got was priceless. Last one too leave gets the check!!

    Obama makes rare campaign trail appearance, people leave early

    (Reuters) – President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity.

    With approval levels hovering around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year raising money for struggling Democrats, who risk losing control of the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 4 midterm election.

    Most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because of his sagging popularity.

    Not so Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown of Maryland, who is running for governor, and Governor Pat Quinn of Illinois, who is running for re-election. Obama plans to appear at an event for Quinn later in the evening.

    “You’ve got to vote,” Obama repeated over and over at a rally for Brown in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington.

    Democrats have a history of not turning up to vote in midterm elections.

    “There are no excuses. The future is up to us,” Obama said.

    A steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium while he spoke, however, and a heckler interrupted his remarks.

    Obama’s help, or lack thereof, may not matter much to Brown, who is 11 points ahead of Republican opponent Larry Hogan, according to an average of polls by RealClearPolitics.

    Quinn’s race is tighter. He is ahead of Republican opponent Bruce Rauner by 1.8 points, according to the RealClearPolitics average.

    Obama is scheduled to spend the night at his Chicago home after the campaign event for Quinn.

    ———–
    You know Rock, he told Hillary at the 2008 convention:

    I. Can. Make. Them. Believe. Anything. I. Want. Them. To. Believe.!!!!!!

    Seems that is no longer true.

    And more is the pity for that.

    Earnst has already opined they were not leaving.

    They were simply moving to the door to fill his campaign chest.

    While big media was fainting in the aisles.

    On a related note.

    Luntz says that trust in government is at a historic low.

    Same is true of those lying cocksuckers at big media.

    Anyone who has not figured the second part out by now is a rube.

    If we had a legitimate media that held democrats responsible and did not do hatchet jobs on the other party, all the other problems might fall in line.

    But that is a fond hope, no more likely than wishing on a star.

    Big media is the most corrupt organization in the country.

    And most people who are paying attention see it.

  45. They keep Obama in a cocoon as much as possible.

    A sociopath like him cannot imagine, much less handle rejection.

    It brings forth in him, the angry ossified child, and act out behavior.

    I suspect that walk out by democrats during his speech had some impact on his fragile ego.

    Perhaps, some day, he will realize just how much he is hated, for reasons which have nothing to do with race.

I have seen to many disappointments since 2008 so I am not as confident as the pollsters that the republicans will do as well as anticipated. We shall see.

    A Toxic President
    By Michael Goodwin

    Chalk it up to karma, fate or bad luck. Whatever you call it, the Ebola scare is proof that Bad Things Happen to Bad Presidents.

    The morphing of what is a single case into near panic is, according to medical experts, unwarranted. They point out that, so far, one person from Liberia died in a Texas hospital and two nurses who treated him got sick. Period, end of panic.

    In rational and medical terms, they may be right. But their calculations omit another factor. It’s the X factor.

    In this case, X stands for trust.

    President Obama has spent six years squandering it, and the administration’s confusion, contradictions and mistakes on Ebola fit the pattern. This is how he rolls.

    Don’t worry, there’s no chance of an outbreak, they said. Then it was, Oops, we must rethink all procedures for handling cases. Then there was no worry about a “wide” outbreak, yet quarantines for lots of people.

    The irrational fear of an alien pathogen is fueled by rational suspicion of an incompetent and dishonest government. How did the so-called experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention give Nurse No. 2 permission to travel by air, even
    though she had a mild fever?

    That’s a great question — if only the CDC would answer it. “I have not seen the transcript of the conversation,” was Director Thomas Frieden’s lame answer.

    Meanwhile, the most obvious move, a travel ban from affected countries, is rejected with unpersuasive claims about the need to get aid workers to Africa. It looks and smells like political correctness searching for logic.

    There isn’t any logic, so bet your hazmat suit a ban will happen soon. It’ll be one way for the new Ebola czar to make a mark.

    But it will take a miracle worker to restore Barack Obama’s credibility. While there are many things to say about his tenure, the one thing you cannot say is that the nation trusts him.

    Poll after poll, on subject after subject, show a collapse. Consistently now, a majority of Americans say Obama is not trustworthy. Most think he’s a failure, many say he is incompetent and the vast bulk — 70 percent in some cases — says his key policies are wrong for America.

    He is so unpopular that members of his own party don’t want to be seen with him, lest his failures spawn a political plague.

    Against that backdrop, any emergency will cause the national yips. The rise of the Islamic State and its beheadings of two Americans did it, and now Ebola is doing it.

    As “Ghostbusters” asked, who you gonna call? Certainly not this White House.

    Credibility is like a reservoir or a bank account. You make deposits in good times so you can make withdrawals when you need them.

    Obama never made the deposits. It’s been all downhill since Day One. He blames others for failures, and when cornered or ambitious, reaches for a lie. Routinely.

    The claim that “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” is a defining example, but hardly the only one. Don’t forget “shovel-ready jobs” to justify a trillion-dollar boondoggle. Or there’s “not a smidgen” of corruption at the IRS. And Benghazi was caused by an anti-Muslim video.

    His lies are legion and now he’s like the boy who cried wolf. When he makes a national appeal on Ebola, the trust tank is empty.

    If there’s one encouraging sign, it’s that Obama may sense he’s walking on thin ice. When Ebola started to dominate the news, he canceled two fund-raising trips.

    Talk about miracles.

    people walking out on him because no one believes O anymore and are sick of hearing him with his usual pontificating…it has grown old and stale…what a joke, O is said to be angry at how Ebola was handled…insiders must be saying ‘where does he get off being angry, every time there is a crisis he runs for the golf course’

    …further, I do not why repubs are not making a bigger deal of all that O is putting off until AFTER the elections – why?…more lies, DECEPTION and tangled webs…they and the Dims, if they are smart, need to expose him

    I sincerely hope that the voters in Kentucky wise up about McConnell and vote for Grimes.

    ……………………..

    Can’t see that happening, am afraid her goose is cooked.

  51. The media is rolling out the new White House plan to manage Obola: Hectoring the public for being scared. This should work about as well as Obola’s speech in Maryland. The public really needs an ass chewing for being afraid of the catastrophe that the Dunning-Kruger http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect fools in the White House can come up with. This may have been the final tipping point some have been looking out for all year. The robotic Dr Frieden, along with the Dallas county executive (called a judge) now known locally as Jackass Jenkins, both of whom are politically correct hacks, have not inspired confidence. Condescending, illogical, hectoring, bitching out of the public who are terrified (for good reason) not only of a hideous disease but a the bizarre confidence displayed by a bunch of really stupid functionaries. The WaPo has TWO articles up on how dumb the public is. Shaming the public for his own screw-ups is a Obola specialty. The public is very concerned with Ebola but terrified of Obola.

  52. It is exactly 2 weeks until election Eve 2014……..

    What can we gather from the polls exactly 2 weeks out……..

    I expect this week to see the start of consolidation of pollsters on where the layout is happening and how big of a swing is going to happen,

    Dems seems to be expecting a black AA voter turnout to save them…….good luck with that, with a weakened useless Obama not even on the ticket or even visible, i reckon they sit this one out on a “can’t be bothered basis” and i think the win for the GOP is going to be bigger than expected.

    I read this weekend from a pollster saying “with low info voters, Dems have a 10 point lead”,but, “with voters intending to vote, GOP has a 12 point lead”……which one do you expect to turn out?.

    Certainly not the low info voter who frankly will probably not even realize there is an election happening.

    I expect to see movement and consolidation of voters to one side of the other, more paying attention now.

    Kentucky : Grimes is off the air in Kentucky…..she’s dead in the water……

    Georgia : Nunn needs a heavy Dem AA voter turnout…is that going to happen? Nope, don’t think so.

    Louisiana : Landrieu needs to cross the 50% line straight away…if not, she is dead in the water, no way she wins a 2 way run off.

    North Carolina is the same – Hagan is relying on the AA vote in NC to keep her afloat, they may just not bother.

    Alaska – I would say this seat is gone to GOP full stop.

    Montana – This one is gone to GOP too.

    Arkasas – Pryor is running not as bad as i thought, however, we all saw what happened with Blanche……..

    Colorado – Does UDall pull it out for a win, hard to say, could be a squeaker. If this is in any way a wave GOP vote, Udall is gone.

    Iowa – This is the one race that can tip either way really, nothing I can say about that.

    NH – Another one that can go either way but typically if this is a wave, Brown will win it …just.

    WV – Gone to GOP— Capito will win it handily.

    The push in certain races will be how does the house change, if you get push from the GOP in the house, this may well help push certain Sen cands over the line in states. Pollsters are expecting GOP gains in the house of up to 9 seats……does that help GOP, oh yes, yes it does.

  54. I’m guessing we can call this serial killer now…..

    http://abc7chicago.com/news/police-3-more-bodies-found-in-gary/357605/

    GARY, Ind. (WLS) —
    Police found three more bodies in Gary overnight. A total of seven bodies, all female, were discovered in northwest Indiana over the weekend, according to the Lake County Ind. coroner’s office.

    One body was found in the 4300-block of Massachusetts Street and two bodies were found in the 400-block of East 43rd Avenue Sunday night.

    Authorities identified one of the seven victims as Afrika Hardy, 19. Hardy was found unresponsive at a Motel 6 in the 3800-block of 179th Street in Hammond around 9:30 p.m. Friday. An autopsy found on Sunday that she died as a result of strangulation.

    Police said a 43-year-old man from Gary confessed to Hardy’s death. They are calling him a person of interest. A source told ABC7 Eyewitness News he may be linked to other murders.

  55. Ooooh get your popcorn……

    Donna Brazile: ‘Voter fraud is a big ass lie’……. James O’Keefe: You’re ‘going to regret saying this’

    http://twitchy.com/2014/10/19/donna-brazile-voter-fraud-is-a-big-ass-lie-james-okeefe-youre-going-to-regret-saying-this/

    Is James O’Keefe’s next undercover video about to expose Democratic voter fraud? Could be.

    O’Keefe just tweeted this tease of his next project, writing that hacks like Donna Brazille and others who claim voter fraud isn’t happening will come to “regret” their words. Get the popcorn:

    Will O’Keefe deliver? If so, they’ll be a ton of regret to go around:

    Stay tuned…

  56. Why Do Democrats Oppose Voter ID?

    It isn’t simply because they want to cheat and such laws interfere with their plans.

    by
    J. CHRISTIAN ADAMS
    Lots of folks think Democrats oppose voter ID laws because they want to cheat and such laws interfere with their plans. That’s an attractive explanation, but it ignores the far more complex architecture of voter ID opposition. Here’s the real reasons Democrats oppose voter ID. Understanding these three reasons will help you decode the whole narrative behind voter ID.

    1. Opposition to Voter ID Is a Base-Mobilization Tool.

    Simply, Democrats and civil rights groups spend millions of dollars opposing voter ID because they are trying to scare minority voters into thinking that Jim Crow is back. If Jim Crow is back, then they better go vote in November. This was made starkly clear to me when I learned that a 3rd grade teacher in a government-run school was telling her students that Republicans were trying to take away the right to vote for black people, so they better get their parents to vote against Republicans. (Yes, that’s another story for another day, and yes I know her name and the school where she still teaches.)

    Fear mobilizes people to vote better than does logic. If you can scare minorities falsely into thinking that they may lose their right to vote if they don’t vote for Democrats, they will vote for Democrats.

    2. Voter ID Opponents Have the Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations.

    Leftist opponents of voter ID truly think minorities are less able to function in American life. I learned this when a Department of Justice Voting Section lawyer opposed to voter ID told me he thought blacks were more likely to forget their photo identification than whites were. Their lives “were more disorganized,” he said. This is a lawyer currently still working in the Civil Rights Division at the Justice Department. This is a perfect example of the “soft bigotry of low expectations.”

    And it isn’t just one crank lawyer at DOJ. The plaintiffs challenging voter ID and election integrity laws actually hired an expert to testify in federal court in voter ID cases that blacks were less capable of functioning efficiently in a daily routine and photo ID laws have a disparate impact on them. The expert called this idea the “calculus of voting.” For example, they have to take the bus more. Taking the bus, naturally, makes it harder to get photo ID.

    The plaintiffs argue that voting “is largely a product of habit,” and blacks, well, their habits just don’t brook any interruptions to their habits, so they argue.

    This is another perfect example of the “soft bigotry of low expectations.” Opponents of voter ID are genuinely afraid that forcing blacks to get photo ID will impose a burden on them they just can’t handle.

    3. They Need Money.

    Groups like the NAACP and ACLU are looking to justify their continued existence, decades after they won the fight. Opposition to voter ID helps them fundraise, and pay salaries.

    So next time you wonder why Democrats oppose photo ID, don’t fall for the easy answer. Don’t think it’s because Democrats have organized cheating operations. The real answer is much more sophisticated, and much more sinister.

    Good one, Foxy!

    Donna Brazille is a Big-Ass liar.

    wbb, your assertion about the reason for ID opposition makes sense.. If the IDs are easy to obtain and free, as the states requiring them allege that they are, then what’s the problem? I’m not saying that racial prejudice no longer exists. It’s worse than it was pre-Obama – on both sides – both blacks and whites, but it’s not the 60s anymore. Regardless, as the Obama Dims so clearly demonstrated in the 2008 primary, there are a lot of other ways, other than voter ID, in which to commit voter fraud and suppression. Look at the caucus fraud that occurred – people locked out of polling places, sent to the wrong place, denied the opportunity to vote, and that only scratches the surface of the crap the Obama Dims pulled in 2008 to steal that nomination for him.

    But, even with all of their underhanded, criminal behavior they still had to bribe and threaten super delegates at the convention. Nano and Screamin’ Dean were said to have had private chats with some of the SDs who were voting for Hillary. If they failed to switch, they had better be prepared to fight their next reelection battle with no money from the party coffers. They could also look to have a primary opponent, one chosen by the party, with party backing.

    That sanctimonious shit of the Dims, claiming to be so worried about voter fraud and oppression is so transparent. After 2008, when the New Black Panther party members stood at the door of the polling places with billy clubs, intimidating white voters (with impunity – because Holder ordered that they not be prosecuted. Payback to whites), I didn’t hear the Dims expressing outrage or concern about voter discrimination.
