Obamas Weekly Radio Address 02 21 09
THE PRESIDENT: Earlier this week, I signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act the most sweeping economic recovery plan in history.
Because of this plan, 3.5 million Americans will now go to work doing the work that America needs done.
...Because of what we did, lives will be saved and health care costs will be cut with new computerized medical records.
Nelson apparently learned from Louisiana's Sen. who got the 300 million for New Orelans, saying he could't support the bill if South Floridians had any Medicaid cuts. Any buzz on that ?
I am surprised that they use the term Christmas Present. You would think that "Holiday Pleasantries" would be more appropriate.
I’m so tired of this Mara chick.
Of course the NiC would think an autographed picture of himself would be a kicka$$ gift.
Apparently he is going after bankers and bonuses. Fox is pointing out how many people in the Transportation office alone are making over $100,000, pointing out that the government is not very sensitive to the economic difficulties most Americans are facing, either.
Greenspan as Oracle was another NY/DC fairy tale, akin to the Emperor and his wardrobe.
No one dared to speak in dissent or even question his ‘wisdom’ for fear of looking foolish to their peers.
Wallace: Obama higher use of drone attacks than under Bush.
Wan concerned about conservatives praising Obama Nobel Prize speech. Seems about to say something real stupid.
I didn’t think a whole lot of Tim Russert. We use to joke about his frowny face when he interviewed conservatives.
But I must say in terms of substance, he was miles ahead of Gregory who is completely sophmoric and obvious in his biases. His questions are little more than DNC talking points and his delivery is childish.
Wow. Juan is not happy with the One.
Obama “I signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act ... Because of this plan, 3.5 million Americans will now go to work”
And Bill O’Reilly gives his performance as President a ‘B’, that’s an ‘F’, Bill
WOW! Juan Williams just went off on Obama’s Nobel Prize speech. Frothing at the mouth.
Greenspan was spot on about the bi-variant economy. Wall St is growing along with huge corporations.
The real engine of America’s economy, small business, is being devastated, taking blue collar America down.....Obama and the Dems couldn’t care less.
The porkulus has been a stunning failure, and “it would have been worse without the stimulus” is no longer an acceptable excuse.
Cramer had it right...all it stimulated was government.
Laughing at Kristol snickering as Wahn freaks out, head about to explode.
You had to really listen to the speech, or read it without the delivery.
It was Bush atmospherics with Obama history-twisting, sly digs, and shameful comments.
Foro example, people heard the part about how the US has done a lot to defend Europe and missed the part where we only go to war for "enlightened self-interest."
I am glad Liz is setting the record straight.
Q: What is the difference between a drone attack on a reputed AlQueda ‘mastermind’ and a SEAL capture of same?
A: SEALS are bad! They are accused of giving the prisoner a bloody lip.
I have no clue where Romney is.
John Thune is kicking Mark Warner’s bodingus on CNN’s State of the Union right now.
Somewhere sitting of a fence.
Yeah Girl...that's the kind of stupid I'm talkin' bout.
I would love to hear someone ask who was in charge of Congress.
Sitting ON a fence.
Obama slams ‘fat cat bankers’ (Upcoming 60 Minutes)
AFP ^ | December 12, 2009
WASHINGTON US President Barack Obama has hit out at Wall Street “fat cats”, expressing anger that banks bailed out by the government plan huge bonuses while millions of Americans battle poverty and unemployment.
“I did not run for office to be helping out a bunch of fat cat bankers on Wall Street,” Obama said Friday in excerpts of an interview with CBS television to be aired on Sunday.
With unemployment still hovering at around 10 percent, amid a recession triggered in part by the excesses of financial institutions, Obama voiced frustration that “some people on Wall Street still don’t get it.”

Obamas Big Wall Street Sellout
Rolling Stone ^ | Dec. 10, 2009
Did you hear that NPR asked Mara Liason asked her to disassociate herself from Fox News. They claim it gives Fox News legitimacy.. .....oh, where to begin ?
There was a peacenik on the C-Span morning chat show who talked about that as well, specifically a 7-year girl who had an arm blown off from a US drone attack. Barack Obama as Lyndon Johnson; I can remember some of those days in Johnson's full term.
Obama will have a tough time in 2012, with Hillary challenging him from the right and the peacers criticizing him from the left. His only hope is that the Republicans win the House back in 2010, so he has an enemy to blame. Otherwise he's one term and out, and from I have seen his personal ambition is far greater than his concern about the well-being of this country, or the realization of his agenda.
I think Juan’s faux general remark was aimed at Bill Kristol, not General McCrystal. I will check a replay to be sure.
Liz Cheney is continuing to set the record straight, this time about the health care reform bill. The public is increasingly against the proposals. She thinks the Republicans may actually be close to killing it.
O’Reilly makes me tired. I saw that interview.
Mara is a knee-jerk defender of all things Obama. I wonder if she is related to Bill O’Reilly?
Everyone who has this HOPE in him purifies himself, just as he is pure. 1 John 3:3
The EPA has decided to go it alone to enforce Global Fraud w/the full faith and strength of the gummit, so how do we fire Lisa Jackson, head of the EPA? She admitted that her decision was based mostly on the same material that has now been debunked in the e-mail dump. What kind of Bureau takes completely discredited statistics and enacts draconian law? Only a dictator would use this type of strong arm tactic which is what we have now. We have an Inner Circle that is acting like a Politburo from the old Soviet Guard. Not too surprising when your model is formed by their bought and paid for, Students for a Democratic Society leaders.
Lisa Jackson head of the EPA when grilled by congress on this brazen power grab, said she made her decision on a report that had its basis on the U of East Anglia data which was corrupted by Prof Jones. She even had time to reverse her decision after the email scandal destroyed all of his “Hide the Decline” e-bombs were exploding on the internet. Rather than doing the proper thing and hold off til these ebombs could be examined so the reports could be verified or refuted, she bulldozes the report through and declares them valid w/o one stitch of proof. She needs to destroy America too bad to let a little corrupt/missing data get in the way of her mission.
While head of the corrupt NJ Dept of Enviro Protection she was caught in the middle of a large Cleanup fund scandal. She was found w/her hand in the cookie jar letting a company ignore a cleanup area that had some heavy metals. While head of that commission she stated and made sure that there would be no Coal Powered Plants built in NJ, so now NJ is paying her price of higher electric bills. Next, she is going to strangle the entire Country w/high electric and energy bills over completely debunked Global Worship.
She has decided, since the skeptics turned out right, she needs to declare CO2 a dangerous gas and dictate every aspect of this economy. Now agreed, excess CO2 inside the District of Corruption is dangerous to the Freedom and Health of America, for the rest of us its simply...air. If that is the case, why dont they declare Oxygen a dangerous gas, wait a second, they did and are going to tax us into poverty. They are going to beat the Repubs want dirty air cliche to death, but it wont change the fact their blowing smoke.
The way the Soviet Union was organized is they developed a figurehead like Stalin who took on a messiah type persona to make his pronouncements godlike to the masses. Course this dipwad aint cutting it. He then had his Inner Circle of CommieCzars who carried out the day to day oppression. Running industry and agriculture Centrally from the Kremlin and Moscow which was completely inefficient. They were surrounded by the Party faithful who received all the extra payments to maintain their better lifestyles. The masses of course had to fight for the scraps as they lived in their gummit housing projects that you always see in the Russian movies. Normally, they would have 2-3 families per apartment w/no possibility of advancement since all the school slots and decent jobs, cars and healthcare go to the Party members or Inner Circle.
Ronald Reagan used to love to tell the story of Ivan who was buying a car at Moscow Motors. He paid the deposit and the salesman said he would deliver the car in 20 yrs on March 16th. Ivan asked him what time? The salesman said what difference does it make, its 20 yrs away. Ivan said he needed to know, he had the plumber coming in the morning. Gorby didnt like that joke so much.
Lisa Jackson is a member of the Inner Circle and Energy Czare Carol Browner another avowed communist is in the Circle of CommieCzars. This is a pure dictatorship right out of the model of Russia/China/Third Reich ass we are witnessing a bloodless coup. This fiat she ordered has no basis in science or even any reality outside of a 90 min film fraud by gore. That is the sum total of this cult, allowing them to take our lives away from us. Like Hitler and his war against the Jewish bankers, Premier Hussain has used the warming of the planet as his war to take away our economic Freedoms. Just as all Progressives like Hitler need to purge society of those who are capitalists, we are going to see this purge by starving the businesses of energy under this Snow Job of CO2 reduction. This is a purge of the skeptics which will eventually, if he can mobilize his cultists, turn into a Gulag prison/re-education program. Only then he will claim can we have enough Soviets to really make his utopia work. Funny how those utopias have to use so much force to maintain themselves while all capitalism needs is Freedom.
Jackson is either a baffoon or a liar since there is no possible way CO2 can increase to dangerous levels worldwide, its too big. There is a growing consensus that the GW scientists are frauds and their emails prove it. Not only is there a Decline in temps, now that we can measure to w/in 1/1000th degree from space, the CO2 is being gobbled up by plants. Plants like trees take in CO2 and expel O2 which animals breath, almost like it was a designed?? Around 80% of the CO2 breathing plants that transform these gasses is in the ocean and are continually making oxygen. If there is more CO2 in the atmosphere then there is going to be more ocean plankton which makes more plankton for fishies. More fishies means more yummies for us and will increase the seals, feeding the Polar Bears. Perhaps thats why were supposed to have the biggest Spring Chinook run since 1939 on the Columbia this year?? We need more CO2 for more yummy Salmon for those Blonde Bears. What do communists like Jackson have against fish and Polar Bears?
Truth is, Lisa Jackson is just another corrupt commie who is fighting to destroy America. Their goals for the past 50 yrs is to destroy the Auto, Trucking, Banking, Nuclear, Oil, Forestry, Hydroelectric, Coal, Farming, Ranching, Housing, Pipelines, Shipping, Gun and military industries and have just about completed it. They have all of them on life support and she wants to step on their hose. This economy would recover in a matter of months if we would put bounties on lawyers and politicians, barring that, voting the bums out and starting over would be a good compromise, although.... The EPA is Hiding the Decline to destroy our Country, there is no other explanation for Cap & Tax. Once that is done then the SDS America hating leadership will remake this into the models that they have worshiped since the 60s. Those are Mao/Stalinist communism where they central control all and we fight for the scraps when not imprisoned. We are at a huge crossroad which everyone needs to fight to save America before she is destroyed. Freedom always has a price, now we are paying it.
Pray for Americas Freedom
Juan is so angry this morning . . . we must be doing something right! ;-)
Juan Williams is so wrong about ‘most Americans want a public option’, Most Americans already have health insurance, Einstein!
oh, where to begin....
But let's face it Dingy Harry will do anything and say anything just to pass this abominable snow job. They know everything they don't get now "can be fixed" just like they passed cap and tax---at midnight.
Thanks! I was so looking forward to it. :)
That was such a great panel debate on “deathcare” I couldn’t bring myself to post. Just stood over by the cookstove and watched it.
Mara thinks they can trade Snowe for Liberman on the final vote. Kristol says Snowe won’t vote for it.
Wahn’s head exploding again, this time arguing with Liz about reforming MediCare. Liz trying to tell him that you can’t add enrollment and cut funding...the math just doesn’t work out.
Wahn accuses Kristol of wanting nothing done...Kristol agrees saying the status quo is much better than the current bill.
I hope I live long enough to live in New Mexico. What a great State.
I was worried Juan would have a coronary. He’s beside himself this morning.
Liz Cheney deals out the facts. Bill Kristol keeps smirking at Juan.
