Barack Obama hit the campaign trail this week to resurrect some of that hopey-changey stuff and to complain that his critics talk about him "like a dog." Turns out the president wasn't, in fact, referring to his own party.
Voters might be forgiven the confusion. It isn't as if Democrats have been showing Mr. Obama much love. Quite the opposite. Seven weeks from Election Day, the vulnerable wing of the majority has finally found itself a campaign issue: blunt opposition to Mr. Obama and his agenda.
Has it only been 20 months? Candidate Obama swelled into office with an ambitiously liberal plab. He promised his party that his legislative items would be more than policy triumphs; they'd be political triumphs. Stick with me, he said, and we'll get credit for leadership. Voters will come to love this stuff. Polls will improve. I'll campaign in your district.
To be added or removed from the
"The Wall Street Journal" Ping List,
Not a moment in too soon. In fact it may already be too late.
There was a heyday?
Funny how those plabs can cause problems in teh long run.
I know what you mean, but I think they already realize that it’s coming, big time. :-)
Baraq needs to campaign more.
I want to see him coast to coast and border to border.
Get him off the golf course and onto the stage!
Obastard can still do plenty of damage to the US with regulations and moratoriums on offshore drilling.
In general, we are a country of dumbasses, led by a cabal of egomaniacs, cushioned only by bare majority of realists held in check by a shadow of conscience.
Hay is for horses but not jackazzes! Makes for good scarecrows however and halloween is already here for the economy. Lots of tricks but no treats!
Plab? Not in my 1950 Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary.
I'm a cracker, like you." LOL
Democrats will run against Obama’s agenda and say whatever it takes to win. If they somehow win, everything changes on January 21, 2011 when they will develop amnesia and follow Madame Pelosi’s orders once again.
Plab —> typo for plan. Good editors are hard to find.
May I steal that nugget of brilliance for a tagline?
“Obastard can still do plenty of damage to the US”
And he will. Getting the reigns back is the first step, but undoing the damage is going to be a complex and difficult task.
PLAB: Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board
Sad but true.
I love your title.
Mr. Webster was a narrow-minded racist bigot and lacked the ‘Progressive’ mentality dontchyaknow. ‘Plab’ is too brilliant a word for Mr. Webster to have ever imagined nor defined! (:
And is why RINOs have to be excised from the party. So far it seems that all the GOP has done since 1995 is to manage the ever-more-socialist state that the Rats have created and have done practically nothing to reverse it.
Say it ain't so! My wife speaks 13 languages, most quite fluently... but "professional assessments" sounds like a liberal trump card uber alles.
Short term...yes...damage would prevail...long term constituents of a truly free republic would win...dive into the Twin Towers or bomb Pearl Harbor and we come together...Stupidity only votes once in favor of stupidity...remorse fights back with earnest to a point until we are overwhelmed by others...it’s fair to say we need to keep a sharp eye over our Christian shoulder...Islamic attacks on our freedom are coming and it will slap us into “next week” before the majority knows what happen...then it will be too late for those of non Christian Faith
Good grief is right! LOL.
If that were only true. Stupid people will ALWAYS act and vote stupidly.
Thanks. I had that feeling I was using the wrong spelling, but I drew a blank so I went with what I had, LOL!
Plab is a plan made up of flab and blab - a perfect 4-letter description of Obama’s oeuvre.
Harry Reid is running ads like that in rural Nevada too; "named best friend of the NRA, loves hunting, shotguns, built best gun range in the country," blah, blah, blah.
LOL, I apparently didn’t live long enough in the South to hear that one.
Barry is like a television child star. The Nation was fascinated with him for a brief time as they were with Gary Coleman, Danny Bonaduce etc., but then quickly grew tired of him. He simply does not know what he’s doing. He just keeps rubberstamping big ticket thousand page bills that he doesn’t even bother to read. He will not age well and history will look on him as a very expensive dud of a President.
That speech he gave in Ohio was disgusting.
That was nothing more than a campaign speech -
This guy is a total empty suit.
For the heck of it I watched RSO on netflix. It’s truly frightening/discouraging to see who has the power to vote in this country.
Give it up dude, I have a gub and I’m ready to use it.
Zer0 rulz, he's the teller. ;-)
Was there EVER an Obama heyday?
Must have missed it among all the socialist takeovers of businesses, the inflated rhetoric, the absurd spending, the chatter of an army of “czars,” the declining position in world affairs, the weeping of our allies, and the laughter of our enemies.
Actually, it's a different way of saying "pablum".
This ought to be good come November, watching Dems turn themselves inside out saying they didn’t vote for Obama care. None of them did, it happened by magic.
Agreed.....Both Congress and dirty diapers need changing for the same reasons...
Exactly. If the GOP candidates let them get away with this, they deserve to lose. All they need to remind their districts is that the first vote these Dems will make when they get back is for Speaker, and the Dem WILL vote for Pelosi. The only way to prevent more disastrous bills like Stimulus and Obamacare is to vote out their local Dem incumbent. The key is ousting the leftist leadership and the only way to help due this is to vote out the local Dem. Make the race national, but give the district voters that they can do their part with a single local vote.
I think it was the few weeks between the Greek columns and telling Joe the Plumber he was going to give his wealth to the parasites.
