Isn’t an “incomplete” what you get for not showing up?

When asked what grade he would give himself, President Empty Chair said “incomplete.” That is really pathetic.

Paul Ryan: “Four Years Into A Presidency And It’s Incomplete?”

“The president is asking people just to be patient with him,” Republican Party vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan said on CBS’s “This Morning” today about Obama’s grade for himself. “Look, Charlie, the kind of recession we have, we should be bouncing out of it creating jobs. We’re not creating jobs near the pace [we] could.”

“That’s why we’re offering big solutions to the big problems we have today and I would just say, if you take a look at the president’s policies he calls them ‘investments.’ It’s borrowing money and spending money through Washington, picking winners and losers. Spending money on favorite, you know, people like Solyndra or Fisker. Picking winners and losers in the economy through spending, through tax breaks, through regulations does not work,” Ryan observed.

“If that kind of economics work, we would be entering a golden age along with Greece,” Ryan said of Obama’s spending policies. “So I think the ‘incomplete’ speaks for itself and that is why I think that we are going to win this and get this country back on the right track because we’re offering bold solutions.”

Fair or unfair, Presidents are graded on four year terms. If they perform well during the first one we give them a second. And yes, Obama did inherit a big mess. But he was the One who had to win NOW, NOW, NOW! It was “his time.” Remember how Michelle told us we would not get a second chance if he didn’t win in 2008?

When a losing team gets a new coach, that coach gets a few years to rebuild the team. But after 3 1/2 seasons if the team is still losing it’s time to try someone new.

Why should we “stay the course” if the course isn’t working?

    Why would a super genius scholar who plays eleven dimensional chess know all about “incompletes”? Is this what his transcripts are full of? Slack, screw off, take courses above your ability and then pull an “incomplete” and claim a do-over. Is this his new campaign strategy? President Do-Over needs to go.

        In the back of my mind I blame the media and the Dem party more than I blame the President. They sold us this empty suit. Eventually the media is going to turn on him and Dems are going to avoid him like the plague, but that doesn’t impress me. I think the media and the Dem party deserve to go down with their sinking ship. They own it, they delivered it, they should be held accountable.

        • wmcb says:

          Yep. He’s a grown man, not a child, so I DO hold the puppet accountable. But I want those who built the image, set him up, and served this piece of crap to the country on a silver hopenchange platter punished as well. They should not be able to walk away like they had no idea.

        • cj says:

          Damned right they should be held accountable. The Dems & the media put this country in grave danger when they advanced an incompetent fool to a position beyond his ability. I’ll never trust either of them again.

        • angienc says:

          I hold them all equally responsible –this is solidary liability as far as I’m concerned and I will *never* forget the MSM & the DNC’s aiding & abetting of Obama. That said, while it is unfair that the MSM & the other Dems get to walk away from him & pretend they had nothing to do with him (which they are doing now), I do enjoy seeing the tide turn against him. He’s not Bill or Hillary — he has no reserves to bounce back — he’ll be crushed. Must be why he’s fleeing to Hawaii.

      • cj says:

        I’ll tell you the truth, I’m amazed it’s happening at all. If they’re not even waiting till he’s out of office to spill the beans, then they know the writing’s on the wall.

        • Lulu says:

          Absolutely. This is about saving themselves. They recognize that their asses are on the line and they are trying to backtrack. I do not think it is going to work and most of them have shot their professional reputations. Pols, media, academics, hangers-on are in for a rude awakening. Even if they thought he was a mess they kept their mouths shut and gave into the pressure of propping up an idiot braggart.

    Someone mentioned we should give The Presidency one 6yr term and no more of this campaigning for re-election bullsh*t, which is all Obama has done for the past 5 years. Term limits for congress too.

    I think we may things shake up in this direction under a GOP admin by a guy who isn’t seeking the job for the money 😀

    • bluestate says:

      interesting idea

    • votermom says:

      I don’t agree – I think it’s hope for a second term that keeps most pols motivated ) Obama excepted.

      • Lulu says:

        After Obama I think a two year term might be a good idea. Then a four year on re-election. No one should be given a four year contract without a try out period.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I think federal service is 90 days before benefits kick in, not sure how long for tenure, but it’s hard to get fired from a gov. job.

          Funny, Obama created the Tea Party movement all within his first 90 days. 😉

    • lyn5 says:

      Honk! My hubby and I were discussing that the other day. I’m beginning to support term limits, because the Democratic voters aren’t doing it. The Tea Party started it with the Republicans.

  8. myiq2xu says:

    I’m surprised they didn’t say the question was racist:

    While the source is not clear, someone developed a simple way to identify incompetent news reporters. If you hear a reporter ask people in President Obama’s administration, ideally in a belligerent tone, “are the American people better off than they were four years ago?,”the reporter is trying to tell you that they are not qualified to do their job.

    The reason we know that the questioners are incompetent reporters is that this is a pointless question. Suppose your house is on fire and the firefighters race to the scene. They set up their hoses and start spraying water on the blaze as quickly as possible. After the fire is put out, the courageous news reporter on the scene asks the chief firefighter, “is the house in better shape than when you got here?”

    Yes, that would be a really ridiculous question. Hence George Stephanopoulos was being absurd when he posed this question to David Plouffe, a top political adviser to President Obama on ABC’s This Week. Bob Schieffer was being equally silly when he asked Martin O’Malley, the Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, the same question on CBS’s Face the Nation.

    A serious reporter asks the fire chief if he had brought a large enough crew, if they had enough hoses, if the water pressure was sufficient. That might require some minimal knowledge of how to put out fires.

    “Preezy Obama, why did you throw gas on the fire?”

    IMO, we (repubs, dems and indies) can’t afford to give BHO another 4 years. For once, the repubs are right. The economy at this stage should come roaring back. It isn’t. And this continued insistence for further stimulus by the dems ain’t helping either. This whining by BHO that the repubs are blocking him at every turn isn’t very presidential at all. BHO ain’t no WJC. Just assume that WJC inherited this recession. He would have worked with the repubs to turn the economy around. Yes, they would hated him, and tried to obstruct him, but knowing WJC, he would have been using his bully pulpit everyday to pressure them and been talking to the House GOP members everyday till he hammered out a deal. Yes, he would have compromised much but he would have got it through knowing that the American people are hurting. That, my friends, is presidential. Simply put, Barack Hussein Obama is just not qualified for the job.

    This kind of crap pisses me off.

    Dem chair apologizes for calling Scott Brown a ‘girl’

    • Lulu says:

      This is the misogyny of the Democratic Party. To them an insult is to call a masculine man a “girl”. What would they have called him if he was a female? Something much worse I am sure.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Called him a girl for folding laundry ? Hope he didn’t see the photo of Mitt doing dishes. 😉

      I know Mrs. Brown has a career of her own, how nice of her husband to share responsibilities. Even nicer Mitt seems to help out … especially that his wife “has never worked a day in her life” 😀

    • carol haka says:

      It just proves once again the party of “liberation, equality ….” is just a bunch of stupid old turds. A “girl” – what the fuck does that mean?

    • I am soooo pissed about this!! John Walsh is a fucking idiot. Worse than that he’s a sexist pig. “Jokes” like that reveal a hellofa lot about what the teller *really* thinks. So laundry is women’s work? And women are girls? And it’s funny to make fun of men for being like girls?

      Fuck you John Walsh and the MA Dem party. How the hell can I vote for Elizabeth Warren when shit shows like Walsh are running the god damn Dem party here?

    “Obama’s ‘Confident Ignorance’ At Root Of His Failure”
    Thomas Sowell

    … Barack Obama is one of those people who is often wrong but never in doubt. When he burst upon the national political scene as a presidential candidate in 2008, even some conservatives were impressed by his confidence.

    But confident ignorance is one of the most dangerous qualities in a leader of a nation.

    If he has the rhetorical skills to inspire the same confidence in himself by others, then you have the ingredients for national disaster.

  12. tommy says:

    And if Romney gets elected, hes gonna have the same problem. IMO, I’d rather trust Romney to work with the senate dems to spur economic growth than for Obama to work with the house repubs. Can’t take the whining about how the repubs are obstructionists and thereby waste another 4 years. The way we’re going, we’ll soon have a lost generation. Nope, my bet is on Romney.

    • DeniseVB says:

      But the repubs aren’t obstructionists, they’ve sent about 16 jobs bills to the Senate which are sitting on Reid’s desk collecting dust.

    • angienc says:

      Romney worked with a MA state congress that was 85% Dem. Obama whines about not having a 60 Dem seat Senate. SMH.

Every bit of it will be reversed in February 2013.

          Glenn Beck had the courage to expose everything he could about the gangsters in the White House.

          The Center for American Progress is crawling with it. They are the main disseminators of the propaganda. They call themselves researchers, then have Media Matters pump it out. Next up is Huffington Post and MSNBC, then it is picked up by Wapo and NYT. Half of the Dept of Energy came from CAP or the green tech venture capital scams in California with several from Harvard Law School to clean up the legalities. It is a RICO case and should be investigated and prosecuted.

  15. carol haka says:

    In order to qualify for an “incomplete” you have to have a legitimate reason for asking.

    That whole “I’m an incompetent, lying liar, lazy, traitor ………. ” reason isn’t any qualifier I am familiar with.

    this article made me think, is this what happened to the democratic party?

    • HELENK says:

      This new city, built around the needs of largely childless and often single professionals, focuses primarily on recreation, arts, culture, and restaurants; the resources valued by the newly liberated urban individual. The economy of such places focuses primarily on those jobs done by these professionals, either in the over-hyped social-media sector, traditional entertainment, or as service providers— waiters, toenail painters, dog-walkers—that cater to the gentry of the urban core.

      In this urban schema, family, long the basic unit of society, becomes peripheral. The new urban political base—not only in the Windy City but in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Boston and other parts of the core Obama archipelago—is primarily childless, notes demographer Ali Modarres. A majority of residences in Manhattan, for example, are for singles; thus Mayor Bloomberg’s push for 300 square-foot “affordable” micro units that could cost as much as $2,000 a month. Gentrifying Washington, D.C., now boasts the highest concentration of childless adult females in the nation, a mind-boggling 70 percent of all adult women.

        LOL, I feel like I’m stalking you today …. they may be moving BO’s acceptance speech to a smaller indoor venue because there’s a 30% chance of rain. (70,000 down to 20,000 seats). And still busing people in for that 😀

        • DandyTiger says:

          30% chance the poor babies will get wet. Waaaaaah. Apparently they don’t love Obama enough. But of course 70% chancel they won’t fill the seats enough.

          I think they’ll pay and bus enough in. They’re putting everything into that effort. I predict they’ll sort of pull it off. We’ll see.

    From what I remember Zogby’s not the sharpest knife in the pollster drawer. I think the GOP/Tea Party wing will outnumber libertarian Paulbots as Johnson is no Nader or Perot. I’ve only seen disaffected Dems go third party or stick with Obama. (RivDau, Amy Siskind).

    This started in 2008, and now is being reinforced again in 2012. IMO, its the democratic party that are filled with brain-dead neanderthals. The repubs have ‘evolved’ much faster and in a decade, may be the party to fight for womens rights. The democrats started de-evolving in 2008, and that process continues.

    • leslie says:

      Elizabeth Warren said that Obama

      strengthened medicare when he gutted 713 billion from the program

      after she heard it on Morning Joe this morning. The Governor of CT or another eastern state (who, ftr, Mika was fauning and giggling over like a fool) said it when the money/Medicare issue was raised before they had enough alcohol to slow them down.

    • HELENK says:

      Obama, staying away from the region while emergency officials were occupied with the height of the crisis, waited until Monday for his visit. He went ahead with a Labor Day rally with union workers in Ohio but freed up time in his campaign schedule by scrapping a second event in the battleground state.

      Romney, a wealthy former private equities executive who has struggled to show that he can connect with ordinary Americans, detoured to the disaster zone the day after his convention.

      so this is how the media is going to play it.

      he wasn’t campaigning and fund raising during the disaster, he was staying out of the way

      and that bad Mitt
      was just there for the photo op

  28. An incomplete is what happens when you showed for the first week of the semester, and then didn’t come back until the last week with some sob story about how your husband’s father’s adopted cousin died in a horrible bulldozing accident. While drunk. Both the student and the adopted cousin.

      one of the best excuses I ever got from a conductor that I was trying to get to work.
      background.. I was born, raised and worked in the Philadelphia area. a city girl. I was calling Newark Delaware rural area.
      The guy told me he could not work that day as he was taking his ass (jackass) to a show to sell it. When i stopped laughing, I had to give him the day off just because of the originality of his excuse
      peddling your ass was a new excuse
