Stuffy Stephy of course the author or at least purveyor of the Republicans are against contraception "issue" which came totally out of the blue and now is touted by the hardcore left as if it were real.

And are media going to discuss: Why didn’t Congress wait to vote before a final version of the Volcker Rule? Dodd–Frank has been law since July 21, 2010, and we still don’t know what is in it.

Excellent catch. One that Rush mentions often that telephone polls are unreliable as hell on some issues,the gay stuff is certainly one of them.

FOX panel discussing Romney’s treatment of cutting the “gay” kid’s hair in high school. Calling him a prankster.

Brit Hume says it was “hazing” much ado about not very much. “What kind of news judgement do these editors have?” Story handled ridiculously....Gigot: story was 5000 words about nothing.

C’mon, nobody was “gay” in the 60s. They were hippies.

Romney was just “kickin’ hippies’ asses and raisin’ hell”

Investopedia explains ‘Volcker Rule’

Named after former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, the Volcker rule basically stops banks from doing their normal business (installment loans, residential mortgages, equity credit loans, deposit services) as well as trading on their own behalf.

The more of these red flag issues—gay marriage, the pipeline, student loan interest rates (!), Dream Act—that Comrade Obamsky takes on at this point the better off we’ll all be if he loses in November—it will translate into a referendum loss for ALL those issues as well as for his majesty.

These red flags could also drag many Demovik incumbents to defeat too.

The Republicans should spend the next 5 months just pounding the economic issues and let the Dems run increasingly wild Left over their landscape of phony baloney, trumped up “cultural” crap and the global warming idiocy.

Think football: the economic issues are the “rock” and the Republicans simply need to pound it right down their throats play after play after play.

Today’s NFL might be all flash-and-dash 5-wide passing but today’s politics calls for old time Woody Hayes up-the-gut running game.

Pound the rock, pound the rock, pound the rock.

Student loan interest rates? Students aren’t worried about the interest rates until they start to pay it back, if then, it’s just another monthly bill.

I think the key thing here is this was over 40 years ago!! Why do the drivebys casually go back that far with our guy while totally ignoring gigabites of info on zeros history which is far more important/relevant than a high school prank pulled by Romney that he does not even recall if it even happened over 40 years ago!! They went too far this time.

Morning AB, All….

Singing in choir at 8:30 mass. Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms and as always, thank you AB, for doing this thread.

Goodness this week we have gay marriage and a media, come on folks, they are the laughing stock, no?

And how about that bad, bad Romney, cutting some guy’s hair? What a find that was for some enterprising reporter, eh?


“Come on Joe, we got the story right here. Romney held down this little gay boy who was hurting nobody and cut his pride and joy, his beautiful blond hair! How bad is that?”

“I don’t know Axel. Guys up in the boardroom are getting tired of being your administration’s mouthpiece. I mean we want to keep getting the inside scoops and we’re really grateful for you cluing us in on that CIA operative story. But Axel, you gotta start being a little serious. Just because your guy’s going after the gay vote...we can’t make this week Gay week.”

“Joe, come on, who do you love here? I got a couple other CIA stories in the works for you next week and we got some real news about to break about Hillary. Work with me here”.

Loud sigh heard over the phone lines.

“Last week it was “women’s week”, week before “contraceptive week”, this week we got gay week. Axel, used to be reporters and newspaper ran stories about the real news of the day, not about the current fundraising target of the administration. We’re getting to be the laughingstock of the world.”

“Joe, you want my stories about the state department scandal and more CIA leaks or not? It’s a tradeoff Joe, and you know it. And don’t forget we got that vote coming up to give you guys an extension of your White House pass. You going with the Romney story or not?

Loud sigh hear over the phone lines.

“Sure, Axel, let me get my pen.”


They are positively the laughing stock. If that White House thinks us Americans who carry this country on our backs is going to go bonkers over some high school prank by Romney man I got a bridge to sell anyone thinks so.

But hey, it’s gay week this week, as decreed by the White House and backed up by the once honorable Washington Post. Week before last, was contraceptive week to satisfy the women on the left who get welfare but want their birth control for free. Lessee, they got Steponallofus to begin that PR run, remember he first brought it up during a Republican presidential debate? Then it was a PR run for women and lessee, they had that CNN operative start that. Now we got the WAPO printing the absurd Romney and the haircutting story, a story with absolutely no witnesses and one which the very victim’s family disavows.

The idea is to paint the administration as kind to poor women wanting birth control and make the Republicans look bad. OR maybe have Romney’s wife look wealthly and lazy as “real” women bring home the bacon AND cook it, or, well they had to kind of manufacture the Romney cutting the hair story but hey, had to make the Repubs, via Romney and his scissors, look mean and anti-gay.

And folks, it’s not so much that they’re failing miserably at every attempt to manufacture issues and set up their absurd national dialogues. IT’s how incredibly stupid the media looks carrying their absurd water.

Yeah, I know we been saying it right along, but it’s getting bad, people, it’s getting really bad.

We will see if the Dems make gay marriage part of their party platform. And we will also see how many Dems down ticket embrace it. I suspect that many will distance themselves from Obama not only on that issue but others.

Obama has now made the Dem Party officially the gay marriage party. Despite the phony polls that show the majority of Americans favoring it by a slim margin, the real poll is the ballot box. Everytime (save one in AZ that was later reversed) gay marriage is on the ballot, it loses--NC being the latest example.

Obama's support of gay marriage further isolates him as being someone who does not identify with the values of the American people. He is a radical and an outsider. That should be the narrative leading up to November. Most Americans don't want to be transformed whether thru Obamacare or gay marriage.

It went down in liberal Oregon 63-37 after it polled 55-45 for it according to the phony polls. The pro-homos called it a conspiracy the phony polls could be so wrong. If it loses in Oregon and Cal, how can it be a winner in middle America?

Agreed. Far from energizing his own base, Obama is energizing his opposition to a far greater degree. And he made a mistake doing it so early in the campaign. You can bet the MSM will try to make it a big deal during the debates. The strategy is to make it a civil rights issue that our black President can push.

Yup, and it is our job and that of every one of our candidates to create a deafening roar in response to this crap.

We need to demand answers regarding

The fraudulent SS numbers
The forged Selective Service Registration
The top secret college transcripts
His funding as a "foreign student"
His illegal alien "fathers American flag draped coffin" buried in Kenya
What happened to his and Moochelle's licenses to practice law?
What's the deal with your composite girlfriend?
Is Larry Sinclair telling the truth?
Further discussion about the communists and terrorists in his past, including the hate-group church he sat in for 20 years....

etc etc etc

It needs to start happening now!

Vulnerable Democratic senators balk at Obama's gay marriage endorsement

Sens. Jon Tester (Mont.) and Claire McCaskill (Mo.), the two most vulnerable Democratic senators, have declined to endorse Obama’s call for the legalization of gay marriage.

Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Bob Casey (Pa.) and Bill Nelson (Fla.), Democrats who have easier races but in states that could become more competitive by November, have also backed away from Obama’s stance.

They all represent states with constitutional amendments or laws banning same-sex marriage.

It’s interesting about Obama and the press. I watched the panel on Fox News Sunday and it was all about the Washinton Post’s infamous screed about how Romney committed a hate crime in high school.

Apparently the Post made this a magazine length front page story according to Brit Hume who was disgusted by the Post. He makes sense but he’s not fiery. Way too much time given to Juan Williams as always (or does it just seem that way because he’s so hard to listen to).

The Post seems to be footnoting this non-story about Obama being okay with gay marriage by implying that Romney is a mean and raging homophobe.

If you believe the story, (and I don’t) he got a little cadre of equally mean boys to hold a boy who was perceived to be gay and had long blond curls down while torture was inflicted on the boy ... the torture consisting of using scissor on him.

No, he wasn’t stabbed or otherwise mutilated but he lost his curls.

What a silly story and the family of the boy featured is furious that their family member is being used as a political ... why do they always say football? Wouldn’t some other ball work. Anyway the family made one dignified statement and said no further comments would be forthcoming.

anyway, nobody on the panel chose to wonder about the total lack of interest by the press in anything Obama has ever done from birth to the presidency. Not One Person.

Did Obama get a pass because he is black? No. Herman Cain is black. He didn’t get a pass.

I guess it has to be the perfect combination : black & liberal/socialist.

Like Reince Prebus told Gregory, already they’d spent eight minutes talking about gay marriage, and I’m glad he pointed that at.

I mean the administration needs to fundraise from the homosexuals and boom, all the media falls down as if worshipping Allah and it becomes the subject du jour.

I don’t know how these people can sleep at night.

Now they all talking about it on Meet the Press. Here’s my question....if the administration weren’t demanding that this be Sunday’s topic, would the MTP producers put it at the top of their discuss list?

Give somebody enough money and they’ll talk about what you want to talk about, I must suppose.

I’ll tell there’s very few in America what lost sleep last night worrying about gay marriage, that’s my guess.

They make such laughingstocks of themselves.

I heard some commentator yesterday who said that the Obama coming out party was a total fiasco by the democrats... that Obama had intended to hold his little gay marriage approval speech until later in the campaign but that Biden forced his hand.

Rush and others think it was all orchestrated, so I don’t know, but I would totally believe that Biden blundered. It’s what he does.

These phony issues are just more interesting to people than something hard and complicated like a financial plan to get the economy working again.

Otherwise, they’d have Paul Ryan on more frequently.

They have one sexy but absolutely inconsequential story after another that they stay focused on for a week, until they can find something else.

Did anybody see Obama talking in front of the garage yesterday? Who is advising him?

Biden did exactly as he was instructed. He went on Meet the Press and extolled his love of gay marriage to the world.

It was their way of getting their fundraiser of the week under way. They got to figure out ways to bring up the topic so it don’t look like they’re bringing up the topic.

So they got Steponallofus to mention contraceptive during the presidential debate out of nowhere, anybody think that was a coinkydink?

They got that CNN lesbian babe to lambaste Ann Romney, anybody think that was a coinkydink?

They get Biden to go on TV and bring up the subject then pretend he gaffed, he “forced” Obama into showing his hand. Coinkydink?

This administration makes the media look like idiotic puppets.

At some point everyone reaches a point of getting tired of the mockery.

I wonder when the media will flip the admin using them so easily...the bird.

It isn’t that Paul Ryan is talking about stuff too hard for people to understand. He explains it just fine.

Which is why they DON’T have him on. He’s a likeable guy who makes sense. Can’t have that!

GAY MARRIAGE! BIRTH CONTROL! SQUIRREL! LOOK OVER THERE!

It’s ridiculous.

I gag every time I hear some pundit say Biden forced Obama’s hand on gay marriage. Since when do a Pres. and VP have to agree on every single issue? After all this wasn’t some pending or proposed legislation; just an opinion. They set this up so the gay lobby would send in their checks. Any one who thinks Biden mis spoke is dumber than he is.

That had to be one of the damn dumbest shows on TV, I know I had to be hearing things that my President didn’t point that show out as some kind of lesson learned and taught upon my screen.

Thank you, cause I wouldn’t want to live in a country with a President dumb enough to say that.

I just read an hilarious post from Andrew Sullivan’s next door neighbor in Provincetown on the conservative gay website “Gay Patriot.” Seems Andy and his “husband” fight all day long, have an open “marriage,” don’t control their dogs and Andy bicycles into town stoned out of his mind!

I love the internet!

I might buy into that, but Biden came out on the issue last Sunday in response to a Gregory question that seemed similar to the way Stephanopoulos came up with his contraception question, i.e., out of the blue.

On Monday Education Secretary, Arnie Duncan, a basketball buddy of Obama, endorses gay marriage. On Tuesday we have the vote in NC that the polls showed clearly the amendment would be approved.

On Wednesday, Obama summons an ABC gay, black reporter, Robin Roberts, to the WH for an exclusive interview to announce his "momentous" decision. He has evolved. The announcement sucks all the air out of what happened on Tuesday in NC and WVA, where a convict gets 40% of the Dem vote for President in the primary. It also sets Obama up for a huge fund raiser in Hollywood at Clooney's house, a function that had been set up some time ago.

On Thursday, the WP comes out with a lengthy story about Romney's high school days, including an incident that makes Romney look like a bully and a homophobe. ABC and the WP work closely together. They sponsor joint opinion polls among other things. It might explain why Obama selected ABC for the interview including naming the reporter that would be allowed to do it.

So is the timing of all of this a coincidence? How convenient is it that the WP had an article on Romney ready to go as soon as Obama made his announcement? The article had to take weeks of research.

Perhaps the timetable was moved up, but given the fundraising event, the NC ballot/primary, and the WP story, I tend to believe that this was all planned and orchestrated to occur on schedule. Also, given the fact that one out of six of Obama's biggest fundraisers are gay, he needed to open the spigots sooner rather than later. And a compliant and cooperative MSM would help him get the message out. This all smacks of Plouffe and Axelrod.

Thank you so much for that.

And my husband over in the peanut gallery offers his running commentary making my gravitas and straight face even harder to keep.

“Aw, Andrew Sullivan thinks of Obama as a father figure, ain’t that sweet?” husband says.

“What they hey, we got Chris Matthews on TWO shows?” husband asks when ole Chris appeared on Meet the Press.

I’m thinking Chris might get Gregory post on MTP as he licks this admin’s butt better than most anybody.

She is to the left of even Chris. Notice how she managed to pin the "FAR right" tag on Mourdock, TWICE, without challenge from anyone.
