Would you buy a used car from this man?

The best government that money can buy!


Get your tickets for Obama Youth Summer Camp now:

Saddled with a faltering economic recovery, President Obama is rebuilding the campaign machinery that vaulted him into office, hoping it can overcome the challenges of persistently high unemployment and a fractured coalition of supporters.

[…]

The campaign is shaping up as a test of whether the much-vaunted organizing abilities of Mr. Obama and his team can offset the headwinds he faces. In battleground states, volunteers are fanning out by the thousands to reach out to neighbors who helped Mr. Obama in his first presidential campaign and persuade them to re-up.

Campaign officials said they know that in some cases, 2008 supporters will have to be coached to overcome what they see as disappointment that Mr. Obama has not achieved as much as they hoped. Several thousand times a week, still-committed volunteers knock on the doors of potential new recruits and neighbors involved four years ago to see if they will join in. The idea is to get face-to-face, neighbor-to-neighbor commitments that will have more staying power than those collected by strangers over the phone.

Yeah, I’m really looking forward to having my Obot neighbors sharing their personal conversion stories of how they “came to Obama” and discovered the peace and joy that comes from doing His will

Check out this really sly piece of political ju-jitsu:

In several interviews, aides to Mr. Obama said they were impressed with the early campaign tactics of Mr. Romney and Mr. Pawlenty.

Not only did they totally diss that skeezy beeyotch Sarah Palin by not mentioning her, by giving The GOP’s two strongest candidates the Obama seal of approval they appear to be trying to manipulate the Republicans into nominating some Tea Party nutball like Sarah Palin.

But the Obama campaign really did that because they want Republicans to THINK they are trying to manipulate the Republicans into nominating some Tea Party nutball like Sarah Palin. Then the GOP will nominate Mitt Romney instead.

Psych!

    If The President put the effort into fixing the economy that he puts into building his adoring fan base then we might have been out of this hole by now.

    • myiq2xu says:

      You sound bitter.

    • votermom says:

      ITA. Imagine if he would put even half the effort he puts into fundraising $1Billion for his next campain into bringing some money into our economy. Our economy would be growing at 5% by now.

      And welcome to the bitter clinger waycist club. 🙂

      • lisadawn82 says:

        Thank you…I’ve been knitting for the last two years and change.

        • votermom says:

          Oh me too! I thank BeerO & Rahmbo for inspiring me to learn to knit. Plus those needles make great defense weapons against unhinged obots, and circs could double as garrotes.
          Watch out for the bitter knitter underground army – we have sharp pointy sticks and we know how to use them!

    Palin’s documovie gets a glowing review from a right-leaning CBS writer (didn’t know they had any) and the commenters go ballistic.

    • catarina says:

      the comments are so rabid they’re almost funny.
      but comments are now popping up in her defense.

      prepare the (low-cal) popcorn!

    • Mr. Mike says:

      The movie won’t chance too many minds as critical thinking skills have gone the way of the Dodo here in the Big PX. With any luck what will happen is more people come to realize the vile state of American “journalism” and not let them sway their vote in upcoming elections. In a country with an honest print and broadcast media there is no way a Bush or Obama would have ever got into the White House except on the visitor’s tour.

      Perhaps someone will produce a documentary movie on the misogyny meted out by the print and broadcast media on female politicians from Geraldine Ferraro to Sarah Palin.

      • votermom says:

        Well according to this (unreliable source?) it seemed to have changed at least one mind
        http://www.salon.com/news/politics/war_room/2011/06/06/sarah_palin_movie

        “The Undefeated” was tested before focus groups of liberals who, according to the filmmaker, almost uniformly came away with a greater appreciation of Palin. This was especially true of women. Two different people told me that a liberal producer at a major television network (it was not Fox News) left the movie in tears after “realizing” how badly Palin had been treated by the media.

  3. catarina says:

    Oh, crap.

    They’re coming to the door again?

    Time to drag the life sized cardboard Johnny Mac cutout up from the basement.
    Drove the Obots nuts the last time 🙂

  4. 1539days says:

    Well, Obama told his minions to “get in their face” back in 2008.

    I would try keeping them away with a Palin/Bachmann 2012 yard sign. And if you “accidentally” connect it to a live electrical line, well those things happen.

  5. T says:

    I’m going to have to change my door sign to “no solicitors…. and no mindless Obot trolls”

  6. Three Wickets says:

    Bit OT, here’s an interesting Hollywood story in a Michael Moore meets George Soros kind of way.

  7. Three Wickets says:

    Wow, check out the number of Facebook fans for all the different Republican candidates.

  8. myiq2xu says:

    Oh goody! It looks like Weinergate is getting bigger

  9. Erica says:

    Marc Rubin has a great post up about Geraldine, Obama, and Hillary:

    http://tominpaine.blogspot.com/2011/06/what-news-media-chose-to-ignore-about.html

  10. votermom says:

    So Weiner just admitted to everything but says he won’t resign.
    Is there any job outside of elected DC pol where you can get caught sexting and having phone sex while on the job and not get fired?
    No wonder these doodoo-heads don’t care about unemployment.

  11. Erica says:

    Pelosi calling for investigation re: Weiner.

  12. Three Wickets says:

    DWS bringing race baiting back to the DNC. How original.

  13. 1539days says:

    Cannonfire is sticking to the hacking and blackmail story to the bitter end.

    • OldCoastie says:

      oh noes…!

    • Oh dear. I’m afraid he’s officially jumped the shark…. again.

      • myiq2xu says:

        Poor Joe, he went all-in defending Weiner and got the rug snatched out from under him

        • votermom says:

          He does love a good conspiracy theory.
          Here’s my thought…it is fun to think about plausible scenarios but the thing is, Weiner never looked or acted innocent.
          If you’re going to go out on a limb defending someone it would be nice if you do a reality check first.

    • Mr. Mike says:

      Joe came up with and proved a plausible scenario about the undie tweet. As a result yfrog(?) closed an exploit in their system that let outsiders upload photos into a member’s account without their consent.

      • myiq2xu says:

        Joe should have known better than to trust a Weiner

      • DeniseVB says:

        yfrog and twitter have denied there was a breach, Joe shouldn’t let those pesky facts get in the way 😀

      • DandyTiger says:

        No, they didn’t. He’s got one heck of an imagination.

        The original photo had GPS embedded, that pointed to Weiner’s office. But let’s not let facts get in the way. This was always a no brainer.

  14. insanelysane says:

    I’m hoping for the deck of cards of Congressional sex scandals…
    so I can keep them all straight.

  15. You guys are cracking me up. You know you’re all wacists and you’re all going straight to hell. Make room under the bus. 🙂

  16. myiq2xu says:

    For “Little Tony”:

    Yay, violet is back at reclusive leftist.
    It only took lil weenie to get her to break radio silence. 🙂

    • DandyTiger says:

      Nice to see. Some of us come out of hiding for the strangest things. What?

      My weenie has a first name…

  18. Mary says:

    Ruh Roh.

    New ABC/WAPO poll shows Romney beating Obama 49/46.

    The One’s approval/disapproval is now 47/49.

    It’s the economy, stupid. 🙂

    • votermom says:

      I hope he’s dumb enough to repeat that joke after she gets in the race. Paging Secret Service…

    • votermom says:

      There was an insightful comment on this on hotair:

      Try to follow the liberal logic. How many lives has Obama’s economy destroyed with chronic unemployment? How much worse off is the social safety net? How much worse are people’s lives in general after the last two years? How much damage has been done to the classic liberal ideal of freedom?

      Yet he’s going to assassinate Sarah Palin based on what? Media fabrications and caricatures? Does he even have an idea what she did in Alaska, how she governed, or how her policies might restore the vitality of the economy and people’s choices up and down the economic strata?

      A quintessential liberal. A man who considers himself an artist and an individual who thinks for himself but is in fact a total thoughtless conformist genuflecting to a tribal orthodoxy, a man who has yielded himself and his judgment over to a mob.

      rrpjr on June 7, 2011 at 6:25 PM

      I have to agree. BO has done so much damage to the Democratic brand and to the Liberal brand and yet it’s Sarah Palin that needs to die. Obot logic only makes sense in zombie brains.

  19. votermom says:

    What’s up with this freaky new comment box?

    • DandyTiger says:

      WordPress just updated their system to allow login from WP, Twitter, or Facebook, in that order. Used to only work with WP login, so some progress. Still works as guest (anonymous, mostly) as before though.

      • votermom says:

        Are you sure this is just not some sneaky way for Breitbart to hack into our accounts and send twinkie pix under our names? /squints suspiciously

        • DandyTiger says:

          Good point. I hadn’t take those dr.. er, I mean, I hadn’t thought of that. I’m sure Joe will bring that up though. 🙂

    • votermom says:

      They seem like good friends — it’s the kind of funny gift you would give someone you knew has a good sense of humor.

      • Karma says:

        They do seem like good friends…..and you can tell they were looking forward to giving it to Clinton.

        And really, if you were a world leader who would you look forward to working/spending the day/sharing a joke with? On a similar note, seeing the pictures of the world leaders she meets with both here and abroad. They all seem genuinely happy to meet with her.

        I have no idea who they are going try and replace her with…but I hope it isn’t Sen Lurch from MA.

  20. votermom says:

    This photo just cracks me up.
    Do you get the feeling Angela is not one of BeerO’s sweeties?
    http://oneclick.indiatimes.com/photo/04IL7NG5ts37T?q=White+House
    I’m calling it Merkel & Urkel.
    Merkel & Urkel

    • Karma says:

      LOL….Nope, never really got that vibe either. Urkel knows that Merkel has actual intelligence and experience….and not the “fluffer” media version he has.

      Hearing him talk in circles about the economy during their joint press conference was painful.

  21. votermom says:

    Did BO almost flub another toast?

    CNS Obama used the dinner toasts as an occasion to present Merkel with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. And after the citation was read aloud, Obama told the 200-plus dinner guests to go ahead and applaud. But then the president realized he’d forgotten something. “I’ve got to do the toast,” he reminded himself.
    And he did just that.

    ABC. After awarding the Medal of Freedom, Obama appeared to almost forget to give his toast. He reached down to the head table — where the first lady was seated in a sequined, cream-colored, sleeveless gown by designer Naeem Khan -– and grabbed his glass of champagne.
    “I’ve got to do the toast,” he said to laughter from the audience.

    Makes me wonder again if he is zoning out with some medicinal help.

    The Dept of Education is now conducting SWAT raids with their own personnel.

    http://www.news10.net/news/article/141072/2/Dept-of-Education-breaks-down-Stockton-mans-door

    They’re making the same stupid mistakes as the normal SWAT teams. The GOP had a good idea to get rid of this bureaucracy.

    • votermom says:

      W.T.F

      The U.S. Department of Education issued the search and called in the S.W.A.T for his wife’s defaulted student loans.

      You mean they send the SWAT team after you if you can’t pay back your student loan? Unflippingbelievable!
      I better make sure my kids don’t get loans for college — in this economy no way can they pay it back.

    • Karma says:

      Wow..

      It makes me wonder if this change in tactics, by utilizing the criminal courts, changes the status of the loan? In other words, a faster repayment schedule or your house, and screw those collection laws.

      Or is this tied to Obama/govt taking back the student loan programs? And now the govt collection dept has SWAT as the heavy instead of a shift manager?

  23. votermom says:

    Someone call the waahmbulance!
    Apparently congresscritters really don’t have anything productive to do in their offices – here’s what happens when they are too scared to waste time on twitter & facebook — they waste time whining that that Sarah Palin didn’t stand in line at the parks.
    Dem asks Park Service about Sarah Palin treatment

    What’s funny is that this guy is the one who put the end of life counselling into Obamacare that got attacked by SP as “death panels.” So that explains why he hates her.

  24. ralphb says:

    Running on this could be a definite game changer, if the GOP can make the narrative stick,

    The Tea Party WMD stockpile is currently stored in book form: Reckless Endangerment: How Outsized Ambition, Greed, and Corruption Led to Economic Armageddon. By Gretchen Morgenson, one of America’s best business journalists who is currently at The New York Times, and noted financial analyst Joshua Rosner, Reckless Endangerment gives the best available account of how the growing chaos in the mortgage and personal finance markets and the rampant bundling of dubious loans into exotically toxic securities plunged the world, and millions of American families, into the gravest financial crisis since World War Two.
