Overnight Open Thread


Watch this clip from last night’s ABC News. The money quote starts around the 1:40 mark – “President Obama seemed to have initially thought all went well that night.

Apparently his aides had to tell him he screwed the pooch. (The look on Michelle’s face should have done it.)

Best part – they are counting on Hairplug Joe to save them!

See you in the morning!

    They must be going through Depends at a rapid rate at Obama HQ

    Oh, to be a fly on the wall.

    • DM says:

      I think the Democrats are going through Depends, not Obama. He’s a loser who expects others to save his ass all the time.

  2. DM says:

    Biden is supposed to save Obama’s ass with a big win. I don’t believe that big win is there. I think Ryan will hold his own and may very well win it too.

    It’s about time the Democrats told Obama he’s on his own and nobody is going to save his ass anymore.

    veterans’ ad about the national security leaks:

    “Gabby” Biden is ripe for ridicule. Hope Ryan has the guts to challenge this stupid braggart and pin the “loose lips” tag smack dab on his butt.

    Another great tidbit. The night after the debate on NBC NIghtly News reported the pilot announcing the Denver Airport Tower congratulations to Mitt on his debate performance when the plane was released for takeoff.

    At the :40 second mark after a commercial.

    And Peter Alexander’s tweet about the remark.

    Now Mrs Obama is saying essentially “Don’t look at me”.

    “Michelle Obama says she rarely ventures into the West Wing to dispense policy advice to her husband — and sometimes holds back from talking shop when the president has finished work for the day.

    In an ABC “Nightline” interview airing in part Monday night, the first lady said her attention is focused on her own projects. She has taken the lead on issues such as reducing childhood obesity and supporting military families.” http://thehill.com/video/in-the-news/260761-first-lady-rarely-ventures-into-the-west-wing

    Yeah, right. As one of the Weird Sisters (I adore the MacBeth witches comparison) composed of herself, Jarrett and various other interchangeable incompetent lackeys such as Rice, Powers, Rosen and Cutter (all know for their bile and hatefulness) it is interesting that she is trying to distance herself from her own husband’s mess which she has helped to orchestrate with her BFF Jarrett.

    • myiq2xu says:

      I don’t have a problem with the idea of a FLOTUS being a member of her husbands inner circle. Nancy Reagan and Hillary Clinton were both fiercely protective of their husbands and kept a close eye on their top advisors.

      But when your wife is half Lady Macbeth and half Marie Antoinette . . .

      • Lulu says:

        I don’t have a problem with it either. But that also means you can’t distance yourself when the going gets tough. She is in cahoots with Jarrett up to her eyeballs and to claim she never goes to the west wing is silly. She doesn’t have to. She has her own frigging wing and more federally paid flunkies than any other first lady. She has thoroughly enjoyed the perks and the power but she doesn’t want to take any of the heat. She sees her post-presidency ex-first lady gig as author, pundit, high paid speaker, professional corporate board member going up in smoke. She has the career prospects of Marilyn Quayle which means not so hot.

        • cj says:

          MO & BO might be in for a rude awakening post presidency. You can’t use & burn powerful people like Oprah, for instance, without consequences.

    Sandusky runs risk of sexual assault in prison

    Because of who he is and what he’s done, Jerry Sandusky could be in particular danger of sexual assault when he is sent off to prison this week.

    With thousands of inmates raped behind bars in the U.S. each year, statistics compiled by the federal government show that sex offenders are roughly two to four times more likely than other inmates to fall victim.

    Sandusky, the 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach, will be sentenced Tuesday for sexually abusing 10 boys in a scandal that rocked the university and brought down coach Joe Paterno. Sandusky is likely to spend the rest of his life in prison.

    Let the punishment fit the crime.

    Joe Klein: “Bigoted” If You Don’t Think Obama’s Intelligent

    • myiq2xu says:

      It’s really funny to watch the Vile Progs’ reaction when they play the race card and it doesn’t work anymore.

      • wmcb says:

        I know. It’s freaking sad and hilarious at the same time, because they throw that card down with such a sense of “Ah ha! Trump card! I win! You have to back off and cower now!”

        They have yet to admit to themselves that No one cares anymore.. It’s kind of like the kid who’s been running around with a “magic wand” turning people into frogs and bunnies. It only works so long as the adults buy into the illusion, and croak or hop on cue. As soon as they tire of the game, the wand stops working.

        • Lulu says:

          They don’t like the obvious that their idol is a dope. The other explanation which is being seen much more frequently is that he was (is) drugged. A NYT blog post referred to Obama as president Xanax 5mg. Which is worse?

    • gxm17 says:

      Bigoted against white people? Intelligence is believed to be an x-chromosome trait. Obama inherited his intelligence from his mother’s side of the family, not his father’s.

    • lyn5 says:

      Yeah, but it’s OK for Obama et al. to call Romney a murderer and a felon. I’d rather be called lazy.

    ‘Austrian to attempt first jump from space – If the wind blowing across the New Mexico desert drops, a 43 year old Austrian man will step out of a small silver capsule on Tuesday and attemp to make history. Felix Baumgartner is to jump from the largest helium-filled balloon ever built for manned flight and hurtle towards the Earth from near the edge of space, 23 miles up. He will reach a speed of 690mph, becoming the first man to break the sound barrier in freefall, before deploying his parachute. If it goes wrong, the project’s medical director, Jonathan Clark, says Baumgartner’s skin will boil. Baumgartner explained in a recent interview that he “loves a challenge”. He made his first parachute jump at 16, the earliest Austria would permit it, and joined the army to continue his training. Both Baumgartner and Red Bull Stratos, which has spent five years and undisclosed millions preparing the stunt, say the purpose is “to advance scientific discoveries in aerospace for the benefit of mankind”.

    OMFG — this is a *real* TeamObama ad to run on TV — really — it’s not from The Onion. $16 trillion in debt, 23 million unemployment or under-employed; gas prices skyrocketing; 4 dead in Libya & the ME up in flames & this is what Obama is focused on –they deserve an epic beat down on 11/6/12 — I’m talking worse than 1984 Reagan v. Mondale:

    • angienc says:

      GOP responds with graphic — Since debate Obama has mentioned Big Bird 8x; Elmo 5x; Libya 0x & his plans to fix the economy 0x.

      • indigogrrl1 says:

        I want all the whiny eeyores to take it back. Mitt has timed all of this perfectly. And it should come as no surprise that the he was pretty sure he was going to win that debate.

        Kept his powder dry..and now BOOM. And he hasn’t even had to play on the really really negative stuff that could turn people off…. he is only using Obama and his record and behavior and that IS working. It lets the idiots that fell for BO’s schtick feel better about themselves and move along without a guilty conscience. Genius.

        • angienc says:

          I’ve been saying it & saying — the man didn’t make millions in private equity being a moron, being inpatient & failing to see red flags.

          Watch the whole (well, whole except for some obvious missing minutes when he’s talking about 47%) “secret tape” — he laid it out, including needing to do well at the debate — back in May. The man knows how to make a plan & execute a plan despite whatever hysteria is going on around him. As I’ve said, that isn’t a guarantee the plan will *work* but it is certainly just as good or better than any plan anyone else could have come up with.

        • indigogrrl1 says:

          A. I’m feeling cautiously optimistic that this national nightmare may really finally end and

          B would have no problem voting for this man and

          C would feel good about it.

        • myiq2xu says:

          The rabid partisans on both sides give crappy advice to their candidates. The goal is to win the election, not score points off the other side.

    • britgirls says:

      Christ on a bike! I’m embarrassed for them now. o.o They need to get serious.

    • lyn5 says:

      I’m confident that Paul Ryan will address this major issue that paralyzes the country on Thursday. I hope he brings his bow and arrows.

    • myiq2xu says:

      More than a dozen American diplomatic missions have been put to the torch over the last month, one of which resulted in the first US Ambassador killed in the line of duty in 33 years. The labor force is near its lowest level in more than 30 years. Gas prices have skyrocketed, and we’re at war in Afghanistan. We are exactly four weeks from the national election. Today, however, Barack Obama will release a new 30-second spot focusing on the true issue that faces our nation …. Big Bird?
