Posted on 08/08/2011 11:19:49 AM PDT by pabianice

Obama is talking about needing new taxes and the nasty national financial downgrading by those meanies at S&P. The NYSE -- already down 312 -- just plunged an additional 150 points as soon as he started speaking.

The market gave Mr Obama a vote of 'no confidence'! And the Congress ought to vote the same way in a joint resolution....

The guy has absolutely no competence.....

THe market dropped while he talked; it jumped back 50 points as soon as he shut up.

It’s clear he’ll be campaigning for 2012 in following weeks on blaming the Tea Party for thwarting his balanced approach (i.e., more taxes, more spending).

Dear American Citizens

I, Barak Hussein Obama, am here today to announce the resignation of Joe Biden as Vice President of the USA. In exchange from immunity from prosecution, I will immediately appoint Rush Limbaugh as my new vice President. Once he has been confirmed by the Senate, I will resign my office.

I know this will come as a shock to my many supporters in the US media but I think we all realize this is the only hope we have to avoid a complete meltdown of the US Economy.

Such a nice dream.....

53 minutes late and strategically timed to fit within a Rush Limbaugh station break, to avoid being mocked with Rush’s running commentary.

Congress voted 97-0 on Obama’s budget.

When Obama speaks of Political Discourse, he fails to recognize that the majority of producers/achievers are not participating in his ‘central planning’ scheme.
Got Galt?

Five Stages Of Credit Downgrade Grief
1. Denial and Isolation.
2. Anger.
3. Bargaining.
4. Depression.
5. Acceptance.

Hmmm... He’s obviously stuck between stages 2 and 3.

It bothered me that he never looked me in the eye and gave me assurance as the POTUS he was working in my best interest.

I know it's ping-pong teleprompter.

What a loser.

The Communist AMERICA HATER is finally EXPOSED for even the dumbest of the electorate.

I sure hope the libs are real proud of what they put in our White House and what he has done, and continues to do to Amercia — like Hitler’s attack on Europe, this is Obama’s attack on our capitalism. Tax, spend, and regulation.

He seriously screwed up. My office is pretty quite and apolitical but there are some seriously pissed off people around me today talking loudly about this disaster of a President. They are not happy with the press conference.

All he did was stand up there and say he shouldn’t have signed that deal last week. And it’s the tea party’s fault. And S&P is incompetent and not as smart as he is. And we’re going to have to raise taxes on the “rich” and thosae how own corporate jets.

And then you have the media saying everything is wonderful! But that’s the tea party’s fault, too.

As always, impeachment is what should happen, at a minimum. That idea is pie in the sky hope as long as the dems hold the senate and still unlikely considering the quality of the GOP “leadership” in the house.

FUBO & FAD

The market reaction to his inane blathering was proof of one of my favorite aphorisms:

You can fool people, but you can’t fool money.

That being said, I think the only people he is fooling now are very foolish to begin with.

I was shocked that when he mentioned the loss of our Seals he never said a word about God or Peace to their families.
He was very cold and almost used this in a polical way.

Damn the dems are just so predictable. My wife and I were discussing what he would talk about. Neither of us can stand to look at his mug. We both said he’ll talk about how the rich must “pay their fair share” and place the blame of the downgrade on S&P or somehow make a reference to the forces who are hurting our credit rating (Tea Party) and the nation. I still don’t know exactly what he said but I’ll bet I’m in the ballpark.

It’s called impeachment. There doesn’t have to be a legal reason to do so. The House has the votes to, even if the Senate won’t go for actual removal.

Didn’t you love the phrasing?

They’re going to ASK those who can afford it to pay more.

So, I guess they can say “no”?
