  • Obama's Budget: 'Go Ahead, GOP, Make My Day'

    02/17/2011 4:10:43 AM PST · by Kaslin · 12 replies ^ | February 17, 2011 | Larry Elder
    Learning nothing from his party's November "shellacking," President Barack Obama offers a 2012 budget that proves, yet again, he believes in government as fervently as President Ronald Reagan believed in the individual. Obama ignores the recommendations of his own bipartisan deficit-reduction commission, as well as polls showing voters want smaller government, and smugly proposes more spending, higher taxes and even bigger government. Obama then holds a press conference and, with a straight face that would have shamed Baghdad Bob, claims his budget "will not be adding more to the national debt." The Obama-loving leftist media won't be critical. After all,...
  • Obama calling for more infrastructure spending

    Obama calling for more infrastructure spending WASHINGTON (AP) - Vowing to find new ways to stimulate the sputtering economy, President Barack Obama will call for long-term investments in the nation's roads, railways and runways that would cost at least $50 billion. The infrastructure investments are one part of a package of targeted proposals the White House is expected to announce in hopes of jump-starting the economy ahead of the November election. Obama will outline the infrastructure proposal Monday at a Labor Day event in Milwaukee. While the proposal calls for investments over six years, the White House said spending would...
  • $700 billion stimulus, nope, more like $12.8 trillion.

    The $700 billion stimulus plan that was supposed to keep unemployment below 8% was just the tip of the iceberg. The actual amount of money leveraged to prop up the failing economy was closer to $12.8 trillion with a “t” ($12,800,000,000,000). This story is coming from that well know bastion of right wing conspiracy theorists known as P.B.S. It seems that our government, and by proxy each and every one of us, was on the hook for a great deal of more money than taxpayers were lead to believe. This video clip is an eye opener. You have to watch...

    WASHINGTON - President Obama's Oval Office has had a face-lift with a New York accent. The office has undergone a top-to-bottom makeover, highlighted by handmade striped wallpaper from Amagansett in the Hamptons. The President's brown leather desk chair, coffee table made of American walnut and mica, custom-made couches and two new table lamps with blue ceramic bases were all crafted by New York manufacturers. The White House treated the identities of the Empire State companies who produced the furnishings like state secrets, declining to further identify them. The price tag for the redo also was not disclosed, but interior design...

    A conservative activist and former presidential candidate says it's an absolute outrage that in the height of a recession and huge government deficits, U.S. taxpayers will soon be footing the bill for rebuilding Islamic mosques in foreign countries. According to The Associated Press, the Obama administration plans to spend nearly $6 million in American tax dollars to restore 63 historic and cultural sites around the world, including mosques and minarets in 55 countries. The projects include $76,000 for a 16th century mosque in communist China, $67,000 for a mosque in Pakistan, and numerous others. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton calls...

    PRESIDENT Barack Obama and his glamorous wife Michelle are living a life of luxury at the taxpayers’ expense, according to a bombshell new report. American tabloid the National Enquirer says Barack has spent a fortune on parties, vacations and expensive designer clothes. “It’s outrageous Obama and his family are spending money like water when the rest of America is frantically tightening their belts in a desperate bid not to drown in their financial woes,” said one political insider. “How can he pull this kind of stunt during what amounts to a modern day depression? “Obama and his wife are acting...

    After turning NYC over to the Islamists and leftist sympathizers, via endorsing their 9/11 Victory Mosque (any Muslim project called “The Cordoba Initiative” has to be just that), Dictator-in-Chief Obama believes that he has found the way to both destroy opposition to his Orwellian plans for the former United States of America and introduce OUR country’s final demise.

    EDGARTOWN - Another Sunday, another missed opportunity for President Obama to prove to America he’s not a Muslim. But instead of attending church services at one of the dozens and dozens of quaint, island Christian churches yesterday morning, the commander in chief hit Our Lady of the Fairways, aka the Vineyard Golf Club, yet again, to play 18. -snip- The president’s handlers have said Obama doesn’t attend services regularly because he doesn’t want to be “hugely disruptive to congregations.” This is apparently not an issue on the golf course.

But instead of attending church services at one of the dozens and dozens of quaint, island Christian churches yesterday morning, the commander in chief hit Our Lady of the Fairways, aka the Vineyard Golf Club, yet again, to play 18. Obama again teed off with Chicago pal Eric Whitaker and aide Marvin Nicholson . Rounding out the foursome was Bill Lewis, a regular Vineyard vacationer who played with Obama and Whitaker last year. Once again, the press corps was kept far, far...

    A new Time poll finds that one quarter of Americans believe Barack Obama is a Muslim. What’s most interesting about that fraction is that more Americans now believe Obama is a Muslim than believed it when he was running for President two years ago. As Americans have gotten to know their President better, more have apparently come to believe he prays to Allah. Big media predictably is interpreting the poll as exposing Americans’ ignorance and xenophobia. But it is actually the best evidence yet that, whatever his faith, the first new President since 9/11 has exposed himself as the Islamophile-in-Chief....

    For the second straight year, the first family has landed on this island of quaint seaside towns, second homes and working farms for a late-summer getaway. But this year, more so than last, political opponents are trying to hang a question over the visit: Does President Obama deserve a vacation? The Republican National Committee has taken to calling Obama "the Clark Griswold president," a mocking reference to the Chevy Chase character in National Lampoon's "Vacation" movies. With unemployment claims climbing again, the GOP was hoping its criticism would have a certain national resonance. And maybe it will. One potential complication:...

    In his weekly radio and internet address, President Barack Obama once again lashed out at corporate America, foreign corporations, Wall Street banks, Republicans; virtually anyone who dare speak out against him. Instead of changing course from the failed policies that have pushed unemployment high and economic indicators low, Mr. Obama is seeking to stem the tidal wave of rejection heading his way in November by blunting the impact of his critics.

    Interior Department officials knew beforehand that President Obama's six-month moratorium on drilling in the Gulf of Mexico would cost more than 23,000 jobs and inflict devastating economic damage throughout the region.Even so, the administration was not deferred from defying a federal judge and doing it anyway.Federal court documents examined by The Wall Street Journal reveal a July 10 memo to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar from Michael Bromwich in which he estimated that "a six-month deepwater-drilling halt would result in 'lost direct employment' affecting approximately 9,450 workers and 'lost jobs from indirect and induced effects' affecting about 13,797 more.'"The Journal also...

    NEW YORK -- President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi were voted the most stylish politicians, according to Weatherproof's Substance vs. Style poll. Close to 18,000 people voted on the Style vs. Substance poll which was published on Huffington Post's Style section from August 2nd through August 8th. "I am not totally surprised by the results of this survey," said Eliot Peyser, CEO of Weatherproof. "We knew that President Barack Obama would top the most stylish list, because he is fan of Weatherproof jackets, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has undoubtedly become a style icon...

    According to the Washington Post, the latest Congressional band-aid, in the form of a $26 billion check to the states, has finally put us at the $1 trillion mark in approved "stimulus" spending. If you divide that trillion bucks by the number of households in the United States, roughly 114 million of them, you come to a figure of about $8700 in fiscal stimulus expenditures per household. "Wha-wha-what?" you ask, "I didn't get any $8700 worth of stimulus..." That's correct, you did not. Why, you may ask? It's because, apparently, you and me and all of our friends and neighbors...
  • White House aghast over 'secret Muslim' poll

    The White House was forced yesterday to reaffirm President Obama's Christian faith after shocking polls found that 1 out of every 4 or 5 Americans falsely believe he's a Muslim -- a considerable increase from last year. "The president is obviously a Christian. He prays every day," White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters. "He communicates with his religious adviser every single day. There's a group of pastors that he takes counsel from on a regular basis. And his faith is very important to him, but it's not something that is a topic of conversation every single day." A separate...

    Let’s Make a Deal. A radical Muslim cleric can build his mosque two blocks from Ground Zero as soon as town officials in Mecca approve plans for a synagogue in the center of the holy city. Maybe President Barack Obama could broker the deal — he gets his mosque and Jews get their synagogue. On the other hand, we may not have a deal after all. It baffles me how Obama can see a mosque near Ground Zero as a symbol of religious freedom and tolerance. By its very nature, the structure would be a monument to religious intolerance, hatred,...

    I thought he’d only been at it for two weeks but apparently it’s a longstanding thing. See, “D” stands for “Democrats” but it also stands for “drive,” and that’s what you want to be doing when you’re in a car. Whereas “R” stands for both “Republican” and “reverse,” and no one wants to be doing that. So there you go. You’re now set for the midterms. Remember: Crushing deficits and near-double-digit unemployment = drive. Wingnut = reverse. It has since become the Mr. Potato Head of campaign stump speech metaphors. The president keeps expanding on it. This week, as he...

    Obama’s in trouble. Whether it’s the economy or the oil spill or the Ground Zero Caring Sharing Togetherness Mosque or whatever else that’s gone wrong for him, his approval ratings are drooping like a 49-year-old man’s pecs. More and more Americans are wondering why they voted for this guy. More and more Americans are getting fed up with the way things are going. More and more Americans are flipping their calendars to November 2010 and 2012 and marking the dates. You’ll never guess whose fault that is!
