He was a half hour late. His head turned from side to side as if he were attending a tennis match. He practically never looked in the camera, as if he were averting our gaze. And those were the strong parts of President Obama’s disastrous speech.

He is a bumbling fool, Sub-Driver. Yet I work daily with people who think this Kenyan Commie is a Messiah. Makes me want to throw up. They complain to the boss if I remind them how is an utter moron.

Disgusting that he is not being rejected by 80% of the electorate.

Nope, he was more like 45-50 minutes late. What was he doing? Having lunch? Finishing a cigaret? Filling out his bracket picks? Planning his next vacation? Throwing up?

From the WaPo article:

"Obama’s predicament — devoid of ideas, bitter about political opposition and completely in over his head."

As my old Navy Warrant use to say, “Leadership is not something you learn in a book Shipmate, either you have it or don’t and the first thing all leaders do is get their heads out of their a**es!”

Nothing wrong with this post, other than it is missing the author: Jennifer Rubin.

Without attribution to her, it makes it look like it’s an “official, voice of the Washington Post” editorial - which would be too much to ask for.

Anyone know which way Rubin usually runs? Is she their “house conservative”, or does she usually run more liberal? If the latter, this could be a sign of a dam breaking....

Jennifer Rubin is generally conservative.

Meanwhile, there's another WP piece covering for the Won and saying that says Obama's only fault in the speech was the timing. He should have given it Saturday.

Uh huh.

.Warren Harding figured it out in 1920...

Congress and the Executive Branch have lots to do.

So far they’re not doin’ it right..

Its been done before..

Harding cut the government’s budget nearly in half between 1920 and 1922. The rest of Harding’s approach was equally laissez-faire. Tax rates were slashed for all income groups. The national debt was reduced by one-third. The Federal Reserve’s activity, moreover, was hardly noticeable. As one economic historian puts it, “Despite the severity of the contraction, the Fed did not move to use its powers to turn the money supply around and fight the contraction.” 2 By the late summer of 1921, signs of recovery were already visible. The following year, unemployment was back down to 6.7 percent and was only 2.4 percent by 1923.

http://www.firstprinciplesjournal.com/articles.aspx?article=1319&loc=r

BTW..ole Warren ALSO fixed immigration...

Mr. Harding signed into law the Emergency Quota Act[3] which sought to control immigration following World War I and preserve the distinctive American culture by ensuring the majority of immigrants came from the historically compatible cultures of Northern Europe. This law aimed to bring wages of hard working Americans under control by limiting immigration to 3% of the 1910 census. It was followed on by a similar act in 1924, after Mr. Harding’s death.[4]

A Warren Harding prescription...if filled ...would ignite the afterburners on the US job machine and the economy. However DC would have to yield on a tremendous amount of power. Our job as We the People...is to persuade them of the “utlitity” ..shall we say..of doing so.

Any takers that ‘Bammy couldn’t even tell you that Warren Harding was one of his predecessors in office?
