    LOL, ooops.

    Back when he was still trying to “get the car out of the ditch,” he told us to, “Pull off the bandaid and eat our peas.” Apparently it didn’t work and the car is still stuck in the ditch. I wonder what his plans for wrecking the Titanic are?

    Maybe Axelrod is thinking how successful the Titanic movie franchise became, how it ended up making billions. But the ship did sink. There is a difference between movies and reality.

  3. If Obama loses, Axelrod still wins. What does he care?

  4. yttik says:

    Speaking of disasters, to this day apparently nobody in the House would introduce Obama’s urgent jobs bill. Apparently the President finally had to call up Rep. John Larson today and ask him to introduce it in the House. There are no co-sponsers.

    Totally stole this from Hot Air too…


    ‘Splain to Lucy why this is the Republican’s fault ? Is Reid intentionally dragging his feet to help or hurt Obama?

    • DandyTiger says:

      The media is spinning it as the Republicans have been blocking this bill for two weeks. Never mind it was just finally introduced, and never mind that Reid is doing this. So if the MSM sticks with that meme, then what Reid is doing is part of the plan.

      • ralphb says:

        The media must mean the house didn’t pass Obama’s speech or something.

      • WMCB says:

        That’s par for the course, Dandy. The latest CNN poll asked whether people blamed Obama or the house republicans for a potential shutdown. Any blame for the Dem senate was not even an offered answer in the poll.

        Notice also that no media outlets ever point out that the only reason we keep needing these continuing spending resolution battles is because the Dems refuse to pass a budget.

        So yeah – they are deliberately playing politics and trying to game it so nothing gets done and the R’s get blamed. That’s the plan. And the media is playing along.

        At this point, I hope every Dem senator loses their job next November. Because while I may not like what the R house is offering, they have passed legislation all over the place, including a budget, and put forward on paper what they want to do. IOW, they did their damn jobs, whether I like their plans or not. The Senate has just abdicated all responsibility. I have more contempt for “feckless, irresponsible, avoiding and whining” than I do “adult and standing up, but mistaken”. Sucky choice, but there it is.

        • Mary says:

          There are 10-12 Senate Democrats who have already said they won’t vote for the President’s jobs bill—not in full, as Obama wants. Parts, maybe, but not as a package.

          Reid knows this, Obama knows this, the media knows this, but no one actually says it out loud. Like you said, they continue to say the Repubs are to blame and not even mention those Dems.

          You’re right. It’s all kabuki.

    HotAir: The Rick Perry lip-reading clip

    Prediction: We’re going to get a roughly 50/50 split on this in the comments. Half of you will hate it because it’s the dumbest thing ever, half of you will love it because … it’s the dumbest thing ever. Count me in the second group; I was gasping with laughter even on the second viewing.

    Save a Pretzel for the Gas Jets!

    • WMCB says:

      ROTFL!!! My son sends me those all the time, done with Star Trek and stuff, but this one is freaking funny. 😀

      • ralphb says:

        The voice is perfect. It’s amazing ROFLMFAO,

        • WMCB says:

          You know, if Perry was smart, he’d end his next debate with a huge grin and “Save a pretzel for the gas jets!”

          Seriously. It would be hilarious, cheeky, humanizing, and might give him a shot at pulling out of his slide.

        • ralphb says:

          It’d be precious and really gutsy. It might work.

        • WMCB says:

          What’s he got to lose?

        • ralphb says:

          Nothing. If his contributors can’t find a way to buy him out of this, I think he may be out of it.

          By the way, I don’t think people are calling for Christie to get in the race to take Perry out. They want him to help remove Romney.

    FDL: Obama Has an Everyone Problem

    Jon Walker attempts to tell the truth about Obama’s support problems but people just don’t want to hear it.

    It is only natural the American people are extremely dissatisfied. Even if you think the blame for the failure to provide effective government rests mostly with Congressional Republicans, in the end only Obama is the head of the government.

    Obama’s main problem isn’t that he has done a poor job addressing some subgroup’s specific concerns. His real problem is that he has failed the first order requirement of all Americans that their President provide the effective governance needed to address an immediate crisis.

    Fashionably liberal

    A Susan Sarandon sighting or limousine liberals at their cheesiest.

    Our intellectual and moral superior (not to mention better-looking) Susan Sarandon was in New York City this week and last, doing those things that our intellectual and moral superiors (not to mention richer) do: attend fashion shows and protests.

    Well, it’s obvious you threw away your democrat card and sided with the GOP! Tell me which GOP do you want to be another Bush?
