Republicans continue to get rid of the dead wood in their party – the Murkowski clan is the latest sent to the dumper by Sarah Palin and Tea Party forces. What used to be the great Democratic Party continues to shrug shoulders and surrender to the corrupt forces that declared this to be “Obama’s time”. Obama? He’s having a great ol’ time vacationing while the country burns.
And the jobs? Where are the jobs? Obama promised that if his “stimulus” scam was passed unemployment would not rise beyond 8.5%. That was a lot of scams and a lot of Hope ago.
The Obama “stimulus” scam passed in 2009 and the excuse from B.O.T.s (Barack Obama Thugs) now is that ‘well, maybe we were too optimistic and should not have said that’. But the never ending Obama excuse machine has a lot of ’splaining to do. A few months ago, in April 2010 “Nobody messes with Joe” Biden promised more Hope for Change. Remember that scam? We do:
“Some time in the next couple of months we’re going to be creating between 250,000 jobs a month and 500,000 jobs a month,” Biden said at a fundraiser today in Pittsburgh.
Next month, Biden predicted, the nation’s employers will add between 100,000 to 200,000 jobs to their payrolls. [snip]
“We caught a lot of bad breaks on the way down,” Biden said. “We’re going to catch a few good breaks because of good planning on the way up.”
Good planning???? This is what they call good planning – waste of trillions of dollars, higher deficits, nation-devouring debt, and no jobs? And Joe said this recently in full knowledge of how badly the Obama scams, plans, and promises have fallen short.
Before we continue with our autopsy of the Obama Economy of Doom, a very brief discussion of our introductory paragraph is appropriate. First Sister Sarah then the original Mama Grizzly – Hillary.
This year in state after state Republican activists and disgusted Tea Party members are cleaning their barn. While we can disagree on the aims and ideology which drives Sarah Palin and the Tea Party what we admire is that they are doing what the “professional left” is incapable of doing – cleaning out their own barn of the stench in the Republican Party as they smell it.
The latest victory for Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, however it eventually turns out, is the shocking results from Alaska last night. Sarah Palin and the Tea Party activists supported a candidate without any real money, who was outspent tenfold, who was 20 to 30 points down in the polls. He is currently ahead as the few remaining votes to be counted indicate he will win the primary and eventually become a U.S. Senator from Alaska.
In contrast, at a Bill Clinton birthday party, we had this revealing comment from Jon Corzine, the recent loser to Republican Chris Christie in blue state New Jersey:
“…as former New Jersey Senator John Corzine looked on wistfully. “I just wish,” Corzine said shaking his head, “I mean I knew — she would have been able to handle this Congress… but it was just Obama’s time.”
What fatalistic bunk! Instead of fighting for what America needed the once great Democratic Party surrendered to the worse of Chicago politics and a Democratic establishment that thought they knew better than the voters. Disgusting.And in other B.O. news, Barack's stinking up the whole planet.
Iraq is Barack's big 'win', remember? He and Joe Biden have been pimping that lie like crazy.
And yet Iraq just saw the worst violence of the year today. Tons of people dead, even more wounded, in one attack after another.
That was a 'win' and a 'success' for Barry.
Just like ObamaCare, I guess and we all know how unpopular ObamaCare is.
Barack should have ended the Iraq War when he came into office. But he was a chicken and an idiot.
He thought he could lie to the people and continue the war with little mind games of renaming/rebranding.
The one lesson Barack never seems to learn is that we're not all as stupid as he is.
I think the last bits of Barack's image are crashing down.
One of my favorite movies is Dangerous Liasons starring Michelle Pfeiffer.
Last night and tonight I watched a different version, made in 2003 for French TV and starring Catherine Deneuve, Rupert Everett and Nastaja Kinski. It's six hour and it's in current times. I think it's really strong and satisfying. Deneuve is wonderful as the manipulator and Everett as the manipulatee who thinks he's in charge. Between that and his own vanity, it was like watching Barack.
