Halfway Point

Look at the bright side. As of tomorrow we are half-way through the Age of Obama.

I hope nobody was expecting some deep and pithy thoughts this morning.

This is an open thread.

    New Newsweek cover has a picture of Obama and the words “The Second Coming.”

    I find that deeply offensive. But that’s just me.

    Well, this new group will be benefitting Obama, not Democrats. Wonder how the DNC’s going to react? Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm …..


    • cj says:

      Just look at who’s behind it; Messina, Axelrod & Cutter. The whole thing is designed to benefit Obama by bullying the Dems into compliance. What will the DNC do? Roll over & smile, what the hell else have they done since 08?

      • DeniseVB says:

        Just like the Republicans do. Gads, if there was ever a good time to kick start a viable new political party….it’s today ! Surely we’re not the only ones sick and tired of ineffective, Obama bullying government ?

        Where are the voices of all those third parties from 2012 ? I’m looking at you Rocky, Gary, Jill, et al. Hope they’re happy now.

      And notice as a lobbying group. Most of the cash would stay within their coffers or circle of friends within the Machine. While Clinton’s organization wants results on their projects to benefit actual people.

      Even that attempted dog murderer, Carter, benefits people with housing.

      These last years in office Obama will be setting up his retirement account.

      The story gets worse, though. In a little-noticed provision of Obama’s recent executive order on gun control, Obama actually creates incentives for the government to funnel cash to “sympathetic gun-control groups,” according to the Washington Times. Writes the Times:

      Hey Obots, he doesn’t care about you, he never did! And if you had researched his record in Chicago you would have known this in 2007.

      • leslie says:

        Lemme just say this: There were 506 murders in Chicago in 2012. Murders – not accidents or suicide or deaths. MURDERS.
        Where was Obama?? Where were his minions ??? They are such parasites. They are utterly shameless. And can all go to hell.

        I ran a group (of mental health patients) yesterday and one of the usually silent members said “Gun control is virtually impossible. .. I could make a gun from internet instructions if I wanted to. Anyone can. This will open up the black market like never before.” I was blown away by their thoughts about Bronco’s proposal. These folks support him for the most part (even though very few of them voted). they feel his proposals are a joke. And they, too are incensed at the perversity of this entire show.

      • DeniseVB says:

        The Obamas had no history of helping people, unless it was themselves for a big fat paycheck for doing as little work as possible. I knew in 2007, they had no accomplishments, and those they attempted, they failed at.

        Their first home was a small condo they kept taking out lines of credit to pay their bills. I think they owed twice as much on it when they sold it.

        Then his books began selling …… the media still hasn’t vetted this guy, but they’ve gone through Sarah Palin’s trash.

    Are we there yet??

  4. DeniseVB says:

    Hey, where are our OWS friends ? Still “waiting for it” because it looks like the only ones benefitting from “economic justice” are the Obamas.


  5. cj says:

    “What all this bibble-babble from Obama reveals is a presidency afflicted with Tom Thumb Syndrome — a small man, with little or no imagination, pushing small ideas and trying to pass them off as transformational changes.”

    The sad thing, however, even at the supposed halfway point, is that not only are they still winning, they are gaining. There will be more voters coming soon in the immigrant population and the administration will continue to divide and alienate the black population against mainstreet Americans. When hatred is the driving force, the engine revs even louder. If you live in an overwhelmingly progressive community, as I do, you see an increase in anger and hatred toward conservatives and moderates (or just differing opinions for that matter), not a lessening. There is no leadership or agenda on the “other” side, the conservative and moderate side, and until that occurs, the slide will continue. Sorry, not feeling very positive today.

  7. Myiq- Your thoughts on this? The Second Amendment was put in to keep slavery?
    Gee, I always thought that the Second Amendment was to keep the govt in check?

    Agree with all above, this in nothing more than a new super pac to redistribute wealth, gather personal info, create some jobs we pay for, and ‘create the world as it should be”..
    What would moron Mo know about the world, she hasn’t lived in the real one since high school ? Her ‘prince’ has never set foot in it.
    This is a new power base and income source for the O’s and Jarrett,.

    Orwell was right..

    • driguana says:

      As I was reading this article again, I was struck by the faces of the people in picture #18 and those in pic #20….a world of difference.

      • votermom says:

        I’m sure it’s racist to notice that.

        • driguana says:

          Funny you should say that…..I was looking at the expressions on their faces not the color of their skin….but a point well taken and for not having noticed it that way, I confess to the deep seated racism that must be lurking heinously in my soul!!!

  9. DeniseVB says:

    Whoops. I think Romney should sue for defamation, not only did Politi-facts call him a liar, but liar of the year. But it wasn’t …..


  10. driguana says:

    wow…just saw this…might have to take back everything I said earlier…or maybe it just bolsters my poin…

    Don’t eat your organic veggies

    Any shopper can tell that organic fruits and vegetables are expensive. Now a peer-reviewed academic study tells us that they’re no more healthful than conventional products.

    Researchers at Stanford University’s Center for Health Policy analyzed 237 studies in the scientific literature for evidence that organic foods are safer or healthier. They found that fruits and vegetables that met the criteria for “organic” are on average neither more nutritious than their far cheaper conventional counterparts nor less likely to be contaminated by pathogenic bacteria like E. coli or Salmonella.

    Many folks buy organic to avoid exposure to harmful levels of pesticides. Bad idea: Yes, nonorganic fruits and vegetables had more pesticide residue, but more than 99 percent of the time the levels are below the permissible, very conservative safety limits set by regulators.

    • votermom says:

      my comment over at ace on this:
      The advantage of organic produce over conventionial is lower pesticide exposure.
      But eating conventional produce is still much better for one’s health than not eating any produce.
      In other words, organic might be marginally better, but it’s unhealthy to avoid fruits/veggies just because they are not organic.

      Addendum: grass fed beef does seem to taste better. And logically the higher up the food chain, the more concentrated pesticides are, so it may make more sense to buy grass-fed mammals than organic produce.

  12. driguana says:

    Regardless of the connections or lack of them between media violence and gun assaults, there is NO doubt that the entertainment industry is a key cog in Obama’s propaganda machine…without it, he is nothing….well, he’s still nothing but the machine rages on…

  14. HELENK says:
