Obama loses Babs (Streisand)- The Elite turns away from Obama!
The Daily Beast ^ | Wed Jul 7, 7:46 am ET | Lloyd Grove Lloyd Grove

Ferguson called for what he called “radical” measures. “I can’t emphasize strongly enough the need for radical fiscal reform to restore the incentives for work and remove the incentives for idleness.” He praised “really radical reform of the sort that, for example, Paul Ryan [the ranking Republican on the House Budget Committee] has outlined in his wonderful ‘Roadmap’ for radical, root-and-branch reform not only of the tax system but of the entitlement system” and “unleash entrepreneurial innovation.” Otherwise, Ferguson warned: “Do you want to be a kind of implicit part of the European Union? I’d advise you against it.” This was greeted by hearty applause from a crowd that included Barbra Streisand and her husband James Brolin. “Depressing, but fantastic,” Streisand told me afterward, rendering her verdict on the session. “So exciting. Wonderful!” Brolin’s assessment: “Mind-blowing.”

Obama - If I’ve lost BABS, I’ve lost America. (Just a fat cracker anyway.)

Only because he’s being perceived as not moving Left enough fast enough.

None of these “elite” people are pro-American Exceptionalism, neither are they pro-Constitution.

You know what *I* think Babs got out of the lecture?: "Blah blah blah, blah blahblahblahblah, radical blah blah blahblahblah..." Someone probably reccomended this guy to her, and she thought he was another loyal Leftist.

Elgibility lawyer in coma:

On July 6th, 2010, an ‘unopposed motion for extension to file opening brief’ was filed in the Keyes/Barnett v Obama lawsuit now in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in California. Appellants’ seek an extension until August 12th, 2010 to file the opening brief in the Keyes/Barnett v Obama appeal. The original schedule to file was June 28th, 2010. Previously, the Court granted Appellants’ an extension until July 12th, 2010, but due to serious complications from back surgery Attorney Gary Kreep is unable to meet that date. The motion was filed by Attorney Christopher P. Tucker. Below is an excerpt, regarding Attorney Kreep, from the motion filed yesterday, July 6th, 2010. The full motion embedded below excerpt.

Do you tan easily? If so, you are a Ritz. If you tend to burn or turn red instead of tan then you are a saltine.

Our corporate tax rate, on a worldwide competitive basis, is just not competitive. Taiwan is lowering their rate to 20 to 15 percent in order to stay competitive with Singapore. These countries have made it their job to attract industry. You don’t get that sense here in the United States.”

Of course not. This administration's top priority is to loot the treasury and fool the gullible.

Looses is often used incorrectly for the word loses, as you are aware. However, there could be a correct usage for the word "Looses" :

"battle - definition of battle from YourDictionary.com ... honors. scene: This chap was the old archer, the veteran who looses the fire arrow to signal the charge in the early battle scene. tank ..."

Looses

The president put all his trust in the wrong economic team—an economic team that didn’t understand what was happening.

His theroretical-acedemic economists have had a brief space walk at the expense of the nation and most of the world. Its now time to get the practical economists back to work. That's not what Obama wants but what Obama wants will never function realistically..

It stands to reason that a free economy will go in cycles. A command economy will go AWOL.

“If you’re asking if the United States is about to become a socialist state, I’d say it’s actually about to become a European state, with the expansiveness of the welfare system and the progressive tax system like what we’ve already experienced in Western Europe,” Harvard business and history professor Niall Ferguson declared during Monday’s kickoff session, offering a withering critique of Obama’s economic policies, which he claimed were encouraging laziness.

“The curse of longterm unemployment is that if you pay people to do nothing, they’ll find themselves doing nothing for very long periods of time,” Ferguson said

I'm hoping more and more each day that Paul Ryan will run in 2012.

I don’t get this at all.

Isn’t this what they wanted and voted for?

Did they not realize the Dem party they adored was socialist to the core, and has been ACHING to get its hands on this marvelous economic machine to change it to its liking?

Did they not vote for ‘Hope and Change’?

Corporate taxes up? What has Obama ever said that would lead them to think he was pro business?

I think I’m in the Twilight Zone.

A couple of things before I hang up my shootin' irons for the night. I still care, makes a very good observation. These people voted for the nightmare that is upon them now.

They never heard Bush talking about redistributing their wealth. He never hammered and hammered about taxing the rich. Of course, I am not convinced that there is a true awakening. If Barbara Streisand is doing a fund raiser for Barbara Boxer, then she still doesn't understand that she is helping to fund those who will eventually harm her and her friends in Hollywood.

The important thing about all of this though, is not the ability of the elite to reason. The important thing is that there is starting to be a shift in what is fashionable. Obama wasn’t elected because folks actually listened to what he said. He was elected because he was the fad of the moment.

Like all fads, his is fading fast.

It is starting to become trendy for the left to bash him. They see he has failed, and the left elites don’t like to be the last in line for anything, clinging to a sinking fad. None of them want to be caught dead wearing last years fashion, and Obama is fast becoming last years fashion.

This is telling, because many more leftist lemmings really do follow Babs and her ilk (sad to say). As the elite begin to jump ship, you will see a mass exodus. Like I said, no one wants to be caught dead wearing last years fashion, and the sooner they can get on to the next fashion, the more intelligent they feel.

Articles like this make me feel good in a sophomoric sort of way.
