    AofS:

    While what is described as financial apocalypse by Obama himself looms on the horizon of next week, he continues to sit back and invite everyone else to court him, doing nothing at all but receiving others’ entreaties.

    This is psychologically where he lives. His whole life has been nothing but other people coming to him to kiss his ass, while he does nothing but provide “hope;” why would his presidency be any different?

    He’s not a leader. He’s a cheerleader smiling for votes for Prom Queen.

    Just go to his website! (Isn’t that what he obots used to say in 2008?)

  3. Dario says:

    Obama thinks the Republicans are going to go with his smoke and mirror b.s., like the koolaid drinkers. It’s not going to happen.

    • SYD says:

      Amen to that.

      Of course we always knew that the GOP would not put on Care Bear suits and sing Barney songs with Obombya. And, of course, Hillary tried to warn the rest of the party doofuses, to no avail.

    We have a new transparent policy now. We have to pass bills in order to see what’s in them. Apparently Democrats have been fine with this idea for a while now.

    Does anybody remember when Obama went to Oregon? A couple of reporters asked him about Hanford. He said he didn’t know what that was but he’d get back to us. The thing is, as a congresscritter, Obama had actually already voted on bills about Hanford. His voting “present” was bad enough, his voting yes and not knowing what was in the bill he was voting on, was really bad.

    “Help wanted: Beggars, prostitutes and thieves”

    I guess those A-list bloggers who shoved Obama down our throats won’t have to worry about finding jobs.

    I love how Carney tries to pass it off as “Obama is not being specific because he is the great compromiser.”

    Bullshit. Obama doesn’t want to be specific, or show his “plan” to the American people because no matter WHAT crappy plan comes out of all this, he wants to remain “above it all”, and be able to point fingers and say, “Well, that wasn’t MY plan, I never wanted that.”

    He is fucking evading responsibility the same as he ever has. He wants to vote “present” his entire presidency, alternately throwing either conservatives or the dirty hippies under the bus as needed.

    I keep beating this drum to both the right who thinks he’s a communist and the left who think he’s a conservative. He’s NEITHER. Obama has no ideology – none. He’s an opportunist who is all about Obama, and nothing else.

      “Don’t get high on your own supply” applies equally well to Koolaid and cocaine

    • yttik says:

      “Obama is not being specific because he is the great compromiser.”

      Yep, WMCB. People like Hillary, people who have actually had to negotiate deals, knew right off the bat that the best way to piss of both sides is to not be specific, to be wishy washy, to not stand for something. She warned us about Obama.Rather than pleasing people, this kind of behavior will make them crazy and rather than compromise, they’ll simply refuse to agree on anything, even things they support.

      Boehner such that is, nailed it when he said, “The President is refusing to take yes for an answer.”

    I remember this:

    • SYD says:

      Hillary was prophetic. Foretold all of what is happening now…..

      But, like all prophets, she was disdained by her own villagers. For telling the truth.

    Cable news ratings for Pres address/Response……msnbc last 😀 Fox beats CNN and MSNBC combined. I swear, Obama is driving people to Fox 😉

    The most significant difference I see at this point between the Boehner plan and the Reid plan is that the former requires redebating the ceiling next year during campaign season, and Reid’s plan does not.

    OT — Dan Peek of America is dead!

    Interesting. That whitehouse insider dude says a deal is done, and that both the D’s and the R’s cut Obama out of it:

    Information has just come in – again, from our D.C. Insider that a deal forged between House and Senate leaders is “all but done”, with a bit of “political posturing and minor contextual revisions” now taking place between Democrats and Republicans. Apparently the final product will be a hybrid between the plans already put forth by Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Republican House Majority Leader John Boehner, with direct input and assurances from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that the votes for passage would prove bi-partisan.

    Notably absent from the process is President Barack Obama, who during the weeks-long negotiation process has managed to offend both Democrat and Republican members of Congress. Contrary to mainstream media reporting, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has already personally informed the president that a general consensus between Congressional leaders has already been met, and that it would be a mere matter of days before a debt ceiling agreement bill was to sent to the president’s desk, at which time, “…you and you alone will be responsible for the outcome Mr. President.” According to this same insider source, both Senator Reid and Congresswoman Pelosi were “personally offended” at the repeated rebukes the president had levelled against Congress. Reid and Pelosi were “fuming” following recent comments by President Obama that he was “ordering” Congressional leaders back to the White House for further talks. A source within Nancy Pelosi’s office apparently made it clear,

    “The president does not order Congress – ever.”

    Today, media reports are indicating the White House is once again threatening to veto the debt ceiling bill most recently proposed by House Speaker Boehner – a bill that has also been received with a rather lukewarm response from a number of conservative Republicans in Congress. This threat comes mere hours after President Obama urged compromise between both sides, once again exposing the repeatedly contradictory and inflamatory nature that has been the president’s role throughout the process – the very thing that has likely led to Democrats and Republicans deciding to negotiate directly among themselves while ignoring the president’s own amaterous efforts at legislative leadership.

    • angienc says:

      Let Reid & Pelosi fume all the want — they shouldn’t have sold their souls to that swivel stick with jug ears, stabbing Hillary in the back in the process, for the hope of sitting with the “cool kidz” at lunch.

      • ralphb says:

        I personally hope they fume all the way out of Congress. IMHO, neither of them is 2% less evil.

    • Mr. Mike says:

      Obama is Reid and Pelosi’s Frankenstein monster.

      Wish I had Joe Cannon’s talent to photoshop an Obama with an enlarged forehead and bolts in his neck. I’d photoshop Harry and Nancy’s faces onto the villagers with the torches and pitchforks. 🙂

    • OldCoastie says:

      I suspect Obama doesn’t really know about the 3 branches of government… perhaps he was present that day in school but those big ears didn’t hear a thing.

      • angienc says:

        but, but, but — he’s a CONSTITUTIONAL LAW PROFESSOR!!! {rolls eyes} Those stupid Obots. My mom is actually a (full, tenured) Professor (of Mathematics) at a university. Do you know how long it took her to even get to ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR? How many publications she had to do? How many grants she had to write (and get accepted)? How many presentations she had to travel to & make? How many inter-office politics bullshit games she had to play? Calling a “visiting lecturer” an “Professor” is a total slap in the face to her & all full professors.

        • ralphb says:

          Heh, I was a adjunct lecturer (professor in Ospeak) of math for a year once and the requirements as I recall were able to meet a minimum academic standard plus warm and willing to do it.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Congrats to your mom angienc 🙂 What a role model !

          Early in Obama’s administration, Michelle was tauted as giving up her law career to be First Lady and there was a movement to give her a salary. Uh, she gave up her law license in the early 90’s. In fact, the info is “sealed” why. Some say it was to be a mom, but Malia wasn’t born til several years later. It’s fun to read her official bios, so full of b.s. like her husband’s.

    Via c4p Wish the MSM would report that while he’s trying to scare the public, he’s telling banks another story.

    “More Debt Ceiling Follies Courtesy of the Campaigner-in-Chief; Updated: Obama to Banks: We’re Not Defaulting”

    A senior banking official told FOX Business that administration officials have provided guidance to them that even though a default is off the table, a downgrade “is a real possibility for no other reason than S&P and Moody’s have to cover (themselves) since they’ve been speaking out on the debt cap so much.”

    This guidance is a big reason why Wall Street has largely dismissed the possibility of default, and though the markets have been jittery amid the talk of default, they haven’t imploded as would be the case, many economists fear, if the nation missed a payment on its debt.

    The banking official said the administration understands that if there were to be a default, it would likely spark another financial crisis.

    “They also know they can pay the debt with cash on hand,” this official told FOX Business.

    • WMCB says:

      Of course they won’t report it. They never look too closely at Obama’s lies and hypocrisy.

    • angienc says:

      Seems like I remember the exact fact pattern regarding NAFTA & Canada during the primary. Anyone surprised he is still talking out of both sides of his ASS?

  13. WMCB says:

    Well, I guess the answer to an offensive ad showing Republicans tossing granny off a cliff is an ad showing the Dems throwing children off a cliff.

    Personally I find them both negative and needlessly offensive, but I wonder how many who cheered the granny version will hypocritically cry foul on this one?

    I got a phone call from a woman a week or so ago from a “cultural trust” organization urging me to call my elected reps. (I buy a yearly family pass to the museums as it saves me money so i guess that’s how she got my number) and urge them to stand up for arts funding. Didn’t pay her much attention as I don’t think buying something permits them to cajole me politically, but I think she was referring to state funds. The budget had already been passed and when i tried to inquire why she was calling me now she acted like waffles with a teleprompter on the fritz — I understood she was reading from a script. Not her fault, she was just doing her 9 dollar an hour job.
    Made me think about how very few if any of our elected cowards ever actually pick up the phone and conduct the poll/interview/PSA themselves.
    So glad I had a moment of clarity when i talked to the woman on the phone, else I may have screamed about artists making 250k a year getting gov’t grants or the orchestra getting millions– whilst music/theater/ art classes are dropped from every broke school. I believe money from the gov’t going to anything like a symphony where the cheapest ticket is 50 should be nixed. Let those who cherish it so much kick in a little more. Raise the 250 seats to 400. No poor kid is attending at 50 a pop anyhow.
    We are in debt and I agree with supporting arts but let’s be real– do you support the future by subsidizing elitist forms or do you create and nurture the future with basic exposure. Taking away the sick monies that major city arts groups wouldn’t hurt them a bit. The next social event of the year no one who is anyone will miss out on. And if the hollywood elites and their counterparts in every major American city think art is so important kick in a little more.

    This blog is turning me into a two cuppa morning person. Because it takes a long time to read every post and comment… then tweet half of ’em.

    It’s worth it.
