Groundhog Day


Chris “Mad Bitch Beer” Cillizza:

Meet President Obama’s new economic message. Same as his old economic message.

You could be forgiven if you thought you had heard President Obama’s speech on the economy today before. Because you have. For most of the 2012 campaign. (Don’t trust us, read Obama’s 2012 acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.)

It’s really great to see a journalist from the Washington Post making such an astute observation. That’s why he makes the big bucks.

Too bad nobody noticed that Obama’s speeches never accomplish anything a little sooner.

    Speaking of speeches—I didn’t watch Obama’s speech (working), but I’m reading that he spoke about “an ocean of tomorrows” and a “sky of tomorrows.”

    What the hell is that all about?

      I’m a California man and I must confess I’m baffled too.

        It is either blind ambition or she is liking the humiliation. Both suggest she has problems as he obviously does. I am not being flip when I say that both of them need psychiatrists for the sake of their child. This is bizarre.

        • jeffhas says:

          I’m willing to go with loyalty to the father of her child… But she (being in the body politic) should be able to see the ‘optics’ (as everyone likes to say these days), do not look good for her or the Mr. after that press conference (I’m surprised she didn’t see that coming BEFORE the press conference).

          Ant’ny spoke like it was all perfunctory, “nothing to see here anymore, I’ve already admitted all this, you have nothing to say on this subject, it’s time for me to talk to the voters”

          I saw Ant’ny get confronted by a guy (Hispanic/Spanish?) dressed in a super hero costume, “Hey, why are you using my name, I’m Carlos Danger”

          Ant’ny just kept walking by looking the other way…

          Too rich for words… I’ll try to find the video.

          A lot of us are saying the same thing. Serious mental issues at play here.

      • yttik says:

        I’m not baffled, Klown. I’m pissed off. She’s selling the people of NY a bill of goods, in exchange for whatever benefits she gets from that marriage. It’s nearly as sleezy as her husband’s behavior.

    • t says:

      They compare her to Hillary. IMHO for Hillary staying with Bill was a career builder. But for this woman? Yeah, I don’t get it. Maybe she’s so in love with him that she can’t help it? That’s also baffling.

  5. Klown says:

    That gives new meaning to “mom’s cooking in the kitchen”

  6. Lulu says:

    Is Obama now officially a joke? Can we make fun of him now without being called names? After every speech can we just say “That’s retarded, sirrrrrrr!” and change the subject? President Pivot will be schlepping around Martha’s Vineyard (with his horde of SS and slack jawed sycophants) in ugly too big tourist clothes licking on ice cream cones before we know it. The important question is should he wear white or black socks with his scandals.

    • 1539days says:

      You can still be called a racist, but the number of Obama supporters is spread pretty thin compared to the people who are now sick of Obama.

      • Lulu says:

        I think the racist stuff is pretty much over. It doesn’t really have power over most people anymore except in the media which fewer every year paying any attention . Two of my children were Obama supporters in 2008 much to my horror. Young, inexperienced and swept away by the bullshit. The eldest, a natural born cynic, saw him for what he was. These younger two voted for Romney in 2012 and loathe Obama now. All three have been extremely fortunate in this economy and know it. They see friends and contemporaries struggling and know that they would probably have been doing better economically without Obama policies. The loss of opportunity and time is catching up with even young people. It has all been a horrible, stupid, nasty waste.

    Obama’s speech writer must have been listening to old Billie Holiday records.

  9. fif says:

    I’m amazed anyone still listens to his blather. Do they really expect him to be someone else at this point? I also read that he commented on how many days he has left in office for the second time this week…he’s just salivating at the thought of 24/7 golf, b-ball and sitting on cushy boards so he can live like the demonized 1%.

    • DeniseVB says:

      With hopes his charges of phony scandals will come back to bite him in his royal ass.

    • Constance says:

      He can join up with the racial grievance industry and travel around stirring up racial tension and outbursts. Jackson and Sharpton are getting pretty old so the movement needs a new talker.

    Awwww, this is sweet. Evil Republicans /sarc.

    Completely OT my favorite musical is being made into a movie!!

    Tonight, BroadwayWorld has exclusively learned exciting new information and is thrilled to confirm casting for the major roles in the forthcoming Disney feature film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine’s adored and adorable fairy tale-themed musical INTO THE WOODS, directed by Rob Marshall.

    A source close to the production has confirmed casting for the majority of the roles now that official casting for the highly anticipated big screen tuner is almost complete, with the big budget production set to start shooting in the UK in a few weeks.

    Leading INTO THE WOODS will be acclaimed stage and screen superstar Meryl Streep as The Witch, James Corden as The Baker, Emily Blunt as The Baker’s Wife, Johnny Depp as The Wolf, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as Cinderella’s Prince, Billy Magnussen as Rapunzel’s Prince, Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Lucy Punch as Lucinda, Tammy Blanchard as Florinda, Christine Baranski as Cinderella’s Mother and Tracey Ullman as Jack’s Mother.

    At this time, the actors in the roles of Jack and Little Red Ridinghood are still unconfirmed.

    Streep previously sang onscreen in the 2008 mega-hit MAMMA MIA! which also incidentally co-starred Christine Baranski. Depp essayed the title role in Sondheim’s SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET to much acclaim and an Oscar nomination in 2008.

    INTO THE WOODS is directed by Rob Marshall from a screenplay by original bookwriter James Lapine and is set to premiere in December 2014.

    The original 1987 production of INTO THE WOODS starred Bernadette Peters, Joanna Gleason and Chip Zien, winning multiple Tony Awards including Best Score, Best Book and Best Actress In A Musical. More recently, a Tony Award-winning 2002 Best Revival starred Vanessa Williams, Kerry O’Malley and Stephen DeRosa.

    Sondheim’s score for INTO THE WOODS features such cherished gems as “Children Will Listen”, “No One Is Alone” and many more. Sondheim and I discussed the previous attempts at a feature film adaptation of INTO THE WOODS in both of our InDepth InterViews, as well as the themes and specific songs of the musical itself.

    I so hope Disney does it justice , I saw this on Broadway and it was wonderful!!

    • Constance says:

      That sounds hopeful, with 1000 former special forces guys pushing for a special prosecutor I don’t see how Obama can just write them off as a phony scandal.

    this is trey gowdy on Greta last night about the “phony scandals”

    Today’s latest Weiner Video:

    NEW YORK (CNN) – Critics of Anthony Weiner staged a silent protest at a New York forum Wednesday.

    Several women turned their backs on Weiner as he addressed a Housing Authority public hearing.

    Weiner is refusing to bow out of the New York mayor’s race. On Tuesday, he admitted to sending lewd messages to a woman a year after his resignation from congress in 2011 for the same behavior. The messages were posted on the gossip web site

    • lyn says:

      Zimmerman is getting away with nothing. Martin’s death will haunt him for the rest of his life, and he has to hide from the haters for the rest of his life. Sounds like prison to me.

    • gxm17 says:

      I really don’t understand the mindset of “I thought he was guilty but the law couldn’t prove it.” Of course the law couldn’t prove murder. All of the facts supported self-defense. At least she recognized that her bias wasn’t supported by law. But what do these people want… to make self-defense illegal?

      • Klown says:

        Playing devil’s advocate here: Perhaps what she means is she believes that Zimmerman is probably guilty but that reasonable doubt still exists.

        “Beyond a reasonable doubt” is a very high standard. Maybe she did her job correctly.

        • gxm17 says:

          I agree. She did her job correctly. So why did she apologize? I don’t understand equating of self-defense with “getting away with murder.” Do these folks really think self-defense should be illegal… what about war… what about drones? IMO, the person getting away with murder is President Zero. But for some reason the Traybots can’t seem to muster up the compassion and concern for innocent brown children a half a world away.

        • gxm17 says:

          Well, that shouldn’t come as a surprise. (sigh)
