  1. I’m making my list of grievances and checking it twice.

    From the Obama campaign. Oh my. đŸ˜›

      ‘It’s Bush’s fault.’

      ‘Bush did it too.’

      ‘Bush’s withdrawal agreement is my promise kept.’

      Without Bush to blame or follow would the Obama Admin even know what to do?

    A pretty good Koffler explanation about the payroll taxcut kerfluffle.

    a snip….

    The Senate last week passed a bill extending the payroll tax cuts for two months. The House today passed a bill doing it for a year. The House now wants to have a conference committee to iron out the differences.

    THIS IS WHAT IS KNOWN AS REGULAR ORDER. That is, it’s the normal way of doing business. But the Senate left town after passing its version and ain’t coming back

    But didn’t Obama tell everybody not to leave til it was done? Though Reid claims, we did our part and passed what Dear Leader wanted…..

    Given the number of men I have helped pick out a gift for their wife at 6pm on Christmas Eve, I’d say there are 4 days left. When my kids were little I did gift wrapping at a local gift shop between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and after 3 pm on the 24th, all of the shoppers were guys. The Friday after Thanksgiving only women came into the shop.

    Rick Perry won the Texas Monthly Bum Steer of the year in this month’s issue. It has many of his best quotes including “I’m not a talker.” One I had never seen was on September 22 explaining who he would choose as a running mate said “I don’t know how you would do this, but if could take Herman Cain and mate him up with Newt Gingrinch…”

    I’m getting disturbed–keep seeing on Real Clear Politics how Obama is going up in the polls. What in the hell is wrong with people??

  8. kc says:

    Probably true–not seeing him is a gift.

    The official White House tweet page started a new #hashtag

    • yttik says:

      If you are lucky enough to be employed and to be making 50 grand, you don’t really need an extra 40 bucks to help you survive. If you’re working making 25 grand, the extra 8 bucks you’ll get is not big enough to do much good. This payroll tax just robs social security, makes extra paperwork for employers, and doesn’t put enough money in people’s hands to make much difference.

    Wonder how OWSies fight-for-the-right-to-camp would look next to these events?
