Biggest sign that White House deficit panel is a joke: O wants to appoint Andy Stern

Ow. Ow. Ow. I am laughing so hard I can’t breathe. Can. Hardly. Type.

WaPo brings us the beyond-satire news that the White House wants to put SEIU president Andy Stern on the federal deficit panel. Now, it’s not just a dog-and-pony show. It’s a dog-pony-and-thug show. I love how WaPo uses the word “eclectic” to describe the choice. “Eclectic” is the new synonym for corruptocrat:

Eclectic trio of candidates considered for Obama deficit panel:

Republican David M. Cote, the chief executive of Honeywell International, has emerged as a top contender for a slot on President Obama’s commission to bring the nation’s soaring debt under control, a senior administration official said Saturday.

The White House is also considering appointing two Democrats: Andrew Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union, and Alice M. Rivlin, a budget expert and former vice chairman of the Federal Reserve who recently launched a separate, independent effort to draft a bipartisan plan to stabilize government borrowing…

…Stern and Rivlin are well-known in Washington. Stern is president of the 2.2 million-member SEIU and an ardent supporter of Obama’s health initiative..


Reminder: The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, D.C. is probing the SEIU for possible violations of the Lobbying Disclosure Act for Stern’s frequent visits to the White House and with members of Congress in 2009.

“O Wants to Appoint Andy Stern”

Mr. Obama, his administration, his associates and all of his appointees are brilliant!!! Absolutely brilliant!!!

They are all well-suited for telling us ignorant dolts how to live, what to do, and how to bow.
/Sarc/

IMHO

He placed a Fister and Pedophile at the head of School Safety and no one cared.

Hope so!

So should Rush, Sean, Mark, and Fox news later.

Heck it might even keep Greta from talking about what’s his name who killed/sold the young lady in Aruba!

Obama’s fake concern for controlling deficeit spending now goes beyond “closing the barn door after the horses are gone”.

He now wants to appoint one of the horse thiefs to the panel to investigate who stole the horses.

Those stupid idiots who voted for Obama because of some wimpish, dreamy-eyed longing for Hopey-Changey are seeing their dreams come true.

Nothing will ever be the same when Obama finishes destroying the country.

Why even get worked up about it? The entire group of Congresscritters and the MSM are going to stand aside as Jamie Gorelick, creator of the infamous wall between law enforcement and intelligence is put on the 9/11 Commission....

I mean, ..."when Andy Stern, is placed on the Deficit Commission."

NO ONE who has any power to do squat is going to stop Obambi from putting a fox in the henhouse. They didn't stop Bush from doing it, they ain't stoppin' Obambi.

I hear Charles Manson is angling for a top position in the Justice Dept, too.

While they are in dream land, the majority, and sane citizens are experiencing their WORST nightmare.

All deficit panels are themselves unneeded and add to the expense of government. Will the people ever learn? NO

I don’t think that the die-hards will ever give up on what Edward M. Kennedy kept calling “the dream”, meaning, of course socialism.

...and Alice M. Rivlin, a budget expert...

What's so hard about balancing a checkbook, that we need an 'expert' to do it ?

...and what I find most interesting is the dreamers have no clue at all that the fulfillment of the dream for them will also be their death sentence. They will stand naked so to speak as the point men and women for the destruction of the Republic. There are those in every generation with sufficient understanding that such people need to exit stage right at the earliest opportunity for restoration to begin.

All these gubmint panels, i.e., deficit panels, blue ribbon commissions, etc., are nothing more than a way for politicians to side step the responsibility of their elected office. Passing the buck is the second biggest scam in gubmint. Stealing bucks from tax paying citizens is the first. The former ALWAYS leads to the latter, too.

They should name these commissions and panels appropriately. Every one of them should be called B.O.H.I.C.A. Commissions, not "blue ribbon" commissions.....
