  • Obama on the World

    I cannot even get my head around the way he “thinks”. His high poll numbers are preventing him from “doing the right thing”! It’s like everything is upside down and inside out with Obama

    Maybe his (Netanyahu’s) poll numbers are high because his people see him doing the right thing.

    Typical backwards liberal thinking. Like when a state passes a concealed carry law and crime goes down, it confounds liberals ... they can’t explain it!

    I went in to one a few years ago and ordered a sandwich. I treated it like Subway, said load it down with tomatoes, lettuce, the works. They gave it to me, I got in my car and took it out to eat it. Nothing but meat and cheese.

    I went back in to complain. The answer ... that’s the way we make it. Well, I said, why didn’t you tell me when I ordered that way? Dead silence.

    Haven’t been back.

    News from the DNC and President-for-Life Obama!

    With the great success of the Obamacare program, our Dear Leader has looked out at the fly-over country ... and He sees a right for all Americans that needs to be provided. The inalienable right to transportation!

    That’s right! With the passage of the new law, your right to cheap, dependable transportation can no longer be denied. There are currently 43 million Americans without transportation, but not after the enactment of ..... Obama-CAR!

    Under Obama-CAR, if you like your current car, YOU CAN KEEP IT! ... as long as it gets 40 mpg city, 55 mpg on the highway. Otherwise, the new Obama-CAR! program will trade your old inefficient clunker for a new Obama-CAR. You will be able to choose any car from the vast array of Obama-CAR! choices ... including white, black or yellow GM (Government Motors) Metro!

    Think of it ... a shiny new Metro in your driveway. You will be the envy of your neighbors, at least until they are forced to trade their old inefficient truck or SUV in for their Metro!

    The advantages of the Obama-CAR! program are almost too numerous to mention. For instance:

    No one can be denied cheap trusty transportation after the rollout of Obama-CAR!

    Highways will be more roomy without over-sized trucks and SUV’s crowding everyone out.
    No one will be envious of other drivers more expensive, impractical SUV’s or sports cars ... because there won’t be any!

    Contact your Senator or Representative today! Let him/her know ... you want your Obama-CAR!

    Man do I agree. It is amazing that the idea that 634 million and more can be spent over three years ... leading to a non-working “web-site” is unbefrickenlievable. I’m concerned when I go to commercial site to give my credit card no., yet this site wants way more info than that and so far appears to treat that data with no respect at all.

    One of the president’s subtler promises was he would not sign legislation that did not live up to his promises. Yet when the dems pulled the carcass known as obamacare over the finish line with lies, bribes and subterfuge, he did not hesitate to sign it without the slightest idea whether it met any of his (now voided) promises. When not a single pub signed it and millions said this is not gonna work, he never took a second to think, do they possibly have a point? He didn’t even listen to people supporting him who said this will be a “train wreck”. I looked up “totally clueless” in the dictionary, Obama’s picture was there!

  • 12 Unspoken Rules For Being A Liberal

    08/31/2013 5:04:20 AM PDT · 20 of 42
    JohnEBoy to Kaslin

    No. 10 is key. Questioning the conservative’s motives and not his arguments. This leads to ... Conservative says “I question the validity of Affirmative Action Programs” Liberal says, “You’re a racist!” Conservative says “I question the validity, morality and practicality of Gay Marriage.” Liberal says, “You’re a homophobe!” and so on. The beauty of this for the Liberal is, with the name calling, the Liberal has moved the discussion away from whether the liberal program is good, effective and accomplishing anything. Instead there is a back and forth about whether the Conservative is racist or not and the liberal avoids any discussion of the ineffective liberal program.

  • CNN Analyst: Many Companies Using Obamacare as 'Excuse' to Cut Employee Health Insurance

    08/22/2013 2:29:18 PM PDT · 10 of 18
    JohnEBoy to Sub-Driver

    Let me understand... companies have been providing health care insurance to employees and their families, basically since WWii. Originally as a benefit to attract good candidates to work. So 70 or more years. But now, just by coincidence, Obamacare has provided a convenient excuse to stop providing insurance and these companies have been waiting for this opportunity all this time. Brilliant!

    With these people whatever the issue is, it’s never the issue. So if people say they don’t like Obamacare, that’s not the problem, the problem is they are racist or greedy or prejudiced. Same thing with global warming or Amnesty or affirmative action or any other issue. Anytime a conservative tells what his objection is to the plan, the liberals always read his mind and declare there is a much more sinister motive for his objection.

  • A Double-Trouble Scandal for Obama

    JohnEBoy to MasterGunner01

    The MSM have been too totally invested in Obama to make a switch. Remember, 90% of MSM vote dem, so the peer pressure is enormous ... if you as a lap-dog presser begin to express any doubts about his highness, others will call you down. It’s a self-perpetuating support.

    It leads to preposterous excuses by the press for Obama. Just a few:

    1. He sat in a pew in Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years. Wright was a mentor to him ... but as soon as Wright’s bigotry became news, the press excused Obama because he never really listened to the sermons!
    2. Brochures were distributed for 16 years by the publishing house for Obama’s books. For Obama’s descriptive bio, the brochure said he was born in Kenya. But the press said this was an inadvertent error, and anyone who believes Obama was born in Kenya is a “birther”! So since Obama signed off on the brochure, he must be the original birther.
    3. The head of the IRS, Doug Schulman, has visited the WH 160 or more times. Something like once a week for the entire Obama term. Obama is his boss, but he is supposed to carry out the law with regard to taxes, laws created by Congress. So what is there for them to talk about, so much? Yet we are told they never talked about targeting conservative opponents of Obama’s using the IRS as a weapon. Right! He was there just for the Easter Eggs.

  • [UnSkewed Polls] Final Projection: Romney 275 electoral votes to Obama 263 electoral votes

    JohnEBoy to RightWingNilla

    I looked at the data below the map and here’s what I noticed. The numbers for the states that they show going to Romney are pretty solid, mostly 51-48 or more. But on the Obozo side, there are at least 4 states where the margin for O is barely a few thousand votes. Pa, Iowa, Wi, NH are the examples I saw, there might be a few more. So if this data is close to correct, only a few extra Romney voters in those places take it from a 275-263 win to a 300+ Romney landslide.

    I see no one mentioning this. NY is a “lock” for democrats every election. 33 electoral votes locked up. Why? Because the entire state of NY votes across the board for democrat president candidates? No. It’s because NY City votes heavily democrat and carries the rest of the (conservative Catholic) state with it. So what happens when a big storm knocks out power in the NYC area and suppresses voter turnout? What kind of a surprise would it be on election night if 33 “locked” electoral votes went to Romney? That’s a 66 EV swing!

    New Jersey will also be affected, just not sure how that will shake out.

    The numbers have clearly been cooked and will be “adjusted” next month, after the election. But this is so obviously a book-cooking exercise, that I wonder if the president benefits more from the number of people who believe these numbers or less from the larger number of people who are skeptical of the so-called improvement? I don’t think these bogus unemployment numbers will convince many undecideds to vote for O, and may convince others he really is a fraud.

    I have made this point on numerous occasions with people and they all agree. Compare the present to Ronald Reagan’s re-election. It is clear many people who didn’t vote for Reagan in 1980, were impressed with him after 4 years in office and voted for him on their second chance. This describes millions of people, resulting in a landslide (49 out of 57 states).

    Who is even that single person who voted McCain, but is so impressed with OBlameBush’s great accomplishments that they are anxious to vote for him this time? I know they exist but they are certainly not millions ... more likely only a few.

    It is very telling that Obama did not come to the state, especially when he was next door doing multiple campaign parties. In Nov, the local dems will be so happy for him to show up asking for their vote.

    The point is, a strong GOP local support system is now in place. They believe they can turn the state for Romney in Nov and the Romney campaign believes it, so they will spend time and money in Wisconsin. There will be an overflow effect, either result will be a positive. Either Obama will have to spend money and campaign in a state that was “in the democrat column” but no longer is, or better yet the GOP actually wins the state, a net 20 electoral vote gain. (i.e., 10 ev out of democrat column, 10 ev up for GOP)

    JohnEBoy to SpaceBar

    My theory: There are only two realistic possibilities

    1. Obama was born elsewhere (maybe Hawaii)
    2. Obama was born in Kenya.
    3. Unrealistic- his literary agent mistakenly typed “Kenya” in his brochure.

    As Sherlock Holmes says, eliminate all the possibilities, what remains is the answer. Therefore, start with 1. Really born in Hawaii. If so, why present a fake BC on the White House web site? Even if he lied about Kenya to get an African scholarship, faking his real Hawaiian BC doesn’t help.

    That leaves: 2. Really born in Kenya. Matches what his grandmother and wife said. Confirms the brochure. And if he got an African scholarship to Harvard, someone must have confirmed it, at the time, before they would provide him the support.

    Therefore the records in Hawaii and the contemporaneous newspaper announcements must have been the family announcing his birth, in order to get him American citizenship. It happened all the time, especially in Hawaii, when it had become a state only a year or so before.
    This would explain all the odd-ball actions, court fights and records destroyed and the reason for saying he was from Kenya right up to 2007 when he decided to run for president. No, his mother didn’t know in 1961 he would run for president, she only wanted him to have American citizenship. But in 2007 his handlers knew about the Hawaiian BC, so they used it for their own purposes.

    I’m pretty convinced O-Blame-Bush made a big-time mistake. His campaign is in their own echo chamber and they hear from everyone that gay marriage is a winner! It is clear from all the White House gay paraphenalia that this announcement was pending sooner or later. But I don’t believe the 50-50 polls on this issue. Way to many real polls have said no way.

    North Carolina must have been a shock this week! Especially since this is where their convention will be. Dems,please decide to move it out of NC. That should be a total logistical nightmare.

    And ... with his numbers dropping like a rock, maybe Hillary will take the plunge. Not likely, but possible, especially with Bill encouraging her. (He really, really, wants to be co-president.) She wants to run in 2016, but not after, hopefully a successful Romney admin. Now might look more tempting if they all start to figure he’s totally lost it.

    Oh, yes, total democrat disarry. Smells nice.

    I agree it is worse for Republicans because, as you say there is a lap-dog, slobbery press, building up dem presidents. Especially with the current Occupant ... everything he does is “historical!” and “unprecedented”.

    Also, polling is biased, the pollsters usually attribute more democrats to the polling sample than are really in the population.

    Which is all the more reason to be surprised at O-Blame-Bush’s negative numbers. He has taken a true 5-10% hit with his gay marriage stance. He’s getting Hollyweird money for it but I believe he’s lost a lot of votes.

DOMA was passed by a huge majority in the Senate and House and signed by President Clinton in ‘95. So a position taken 15 years ago about a social requirement of the last 8000 years is a problem because some people have decided in the last 5 years that if you don’t agree with their new sophisticated position, you are a bigot.

    By the way, more Obama hypocrisy. He complained that if the Supreme Court overturned obamacare, it would be an “unprecedented” action by a few judges on legislation passed by a majority. Yet, his DOJ wants to take DOMA to the SC to overturn it, even though it really was passed with a huge bipartisan majority and signed by a democrat president.

    I have a broader objection to the whole issue of bringing up Bush’s military career from the early ‘70’s. This was 2003, Bush had been president for 4 years. Any voter who wanted to consider his ability as Commander in Chief merely needed to review what they knew from the prior 4 years. His time in the TANG was mostly irrelevent by this time for the average voter.

    Meanwhile, Kerry, had not been CIC and it was therefore relevent to look at his 70’s military career and those men who knew him, for voters to assess him as CIC.

    But the liberal lapdog democrat press ignored the “Swiftboat” guys or discounted their testimony, but when highly dubious memos showed up questioning Bush’s service, these were presented as “Holy Grails” of inside scoop.

    The issue is not just about winning Georgia in an election. The point is, if he was forced off the ballot in Georgia, then other states would have to consider why and even the lapdog media would have to pay attention. “Birthers” would be vindicated and the media would have to explain what happened.

    The other issue in item 5, is the unemployment rate. Another article I read analyzed why it is that high when there are so many jobs being created. The answer, unemployed people are moving to Texas, seeking a job. The other state’s unemployment goes down, Texas’ rate goes up. Even with that, enough jobs are found to keep Texas below the national average.

    Your point about the minimum wage jobs is right on. Go to Illinois or Michigan’s legislature and say, “my franchised restaurant will move to your state and bring in 50,000 minimum wage jobs”. Would they turn you down?

    One thing I read, to me puts his re-election prospects in perspective. Try to imagine or describe that voter who thinks, “I didn’t vote for Obama in 2008, but now that I’ve seen him in action, he’s sure got my vote this time, around”. It’s hard to picture anyone saying this. If it’s true his population of new voters is small, then he will need all of his first time voters to vote for him again. Doesn’t seem likely.

  • Pro-Obama Media Always Shocked by Bad Economic News

    He says Obama can’t blame Bush for the economy, forever. Maybe not, but it doesn’t ever seem to stop. He never takes responsibility for his own bad policies. What I hate is the phrase “this economy we inherited”. How do you inherit something you campaigned full time for, for 2-3 years? Clinton did the same thing. He ran on a “middle class tax cut”, then got in office and said “boy, this economy is worse than I thought”. Meaning for all the time spent campaigning, no time was spent learning the actual facts of the economy.

    I’ve never heard of this take on the whole thing, but if this story is on the up and up (not sure), then the point is Baby Herbert had an official birth certificate on Aug 4th because that’s what his death certificate said on Aug 5th. If you were going to Photoshop a Barrack Hussein OBama Hawaiian BC on Aug 4th, then a good starting point would be to use a Herbert Harrison O’Brien Aug 4th BC as a template to work from. Interesting theory.

    It always amazes me. If the KKK in the 50’s or 60’s had laid out a plan to kill 60% of black babies, there would have been an outrage and an outcry. Yet, here they are, doing it to themselves.

    Serious primary challenges to incumbent presidents lead to the incumbent losing. Consider Johnson, Carter, George HW Bush and I believe Gerald Ford was challenged. Note Reagan, Clinton and Bush did not have primary challengers and they did not lose.

    Right, the place where you see this is the ObamaCare waivers. They are now up to about 700. This was so-called “universal-affordable” health care. Yet somehow, 700+(so far) organizations can’t afford it and waiving them makes it non-universal. Republicans need to highlight this. Who knew, at the time of town hall meetings about ObamaCare that there would be waivers? If there are waivers in 2011, there will certainly be waivers in ‘12,’13 and so on. Again, this is just big-government choosing winners and losers.
