Barack Obamapatra, Queen of Denial

B1qOY-dIEAA7ei3


The general consensus even on the Obama News Network was that last night’s electoral ass-whoopin’ was a repudiation of Barack Obama. Just a few weeks ago Obama said that his policies were on the ballot:

President Obama insisted that his economic policies are “on the ballot” this fall, thwarting Democratic attempts to distance themselves from the president ahead of November 4.

Delivering a speech on the economy at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management in Evanston, Ill., Obama said although he is not on the ballot, his policies are.

“I’m not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that,” Obama said. “But make no mistake: These policies are on the ballot, every single one of them.”


That’s really no surprise, midterm election are often seen as a referendum on the occupant of the White House.

Then last night we got this:

Two things were clear long before the votes were counted on Tuesday night: President Obama would face a Congress with more Republicans for his final two years in office, and the results would be seen as a repudiation of his leadership.

But that was not the way Mr. Obama saw it. The electoral map was stacked against him, he argued, making Democrats underdogs from the start. And his own party kept him off the trail, meaning he never really got the chance to make his case. “You’re in the Final Four,” as one aide put it, “and you’re on the bench with a walking boot and you don’t get to play.”

The Republican capture of the Senate culminated a season of discontent for the president — and may yet open a period of even deeper frustration. Sagging in the polls and unwelcome in most competitive races across the country, Mr. Obama bristled as the last campaign that would influence his presidency played out while he sat largely on the sidelines. He privately complained that it should not be a judgment on him. “He doesn’t feel repudiated,” the aide said Tuesday night.

But the Republican tide was stronger than projected, sweeping away Democrats even in some of those few blue states where the president did campaign. Mr. Obama now faces a daunting challenge in reasserting his relevance in a capital where he will be perceived as a lame duck. If the hope-and-change phase of his presidency is long over, he wants at least to produce a period of progress and consolidation to complete his time in the White House.

After making congratulatory telephone calls from the White House on Tuesday night, Mr. Obama will kick off that final phase on Wednesday with a news conference seeking bipartisan accommodation on issues of mutual interest, and he invited Republican and Democratic leaders at the White House on Friday. At the same time, aides said, Mr. Obama is eager to throw off the constraints of a campaign that he did not direct and begin to defend his record in a more robust way again.

“He’s going to be aggressive. He’s ready to go,” said another senior official, who like others did not want to be identified discussing plans before the election results were tabulated. “We’ve got a lot of important stuff to get done in the lame duck. He’ll talk about that tomorrow. We’ve got a lot of important stuff to get done in the last two years. He’s anxious to get going on that.”


Lolwut?

Seriously, has the man gone completely off his rocker?

Here was the scene at OFA headquarters:

      Here’s a good one –

      Another delicious moment was watching MSNBC’s “Special Ed” Shultz going f*cking haywire after Scott Walker and Rick Scott won. I thought he was going to explode lol

  2. Ann says:

    I wish I could be confident that the Republicans saw these results as a complete repudiation of the “workings” in Washington, but I have a feeling everything will go on as business as usual. I doubt Mitch McConnell is a big upgrade on Harry Reid.

    And I sincerely (and desperately) hope I am wrong and the Republicans actually got a clue from yesterday’s election results.

    • abc says:

      So true. It isn’t that far from 2008, when the Dems were saying they had a permanent majority. Chuckle.

      My advice: Listen to constituents and don’t get cocky.

    • The Klown says:

      What happened last night was not an endorsement of GOP policies or candidates. It was a message from the voters to Barack Obama. If the GOP thinks it’s now business as usual they won’t control Congress for long.

      • Lulu says:

        It is also a message to the remaining Dems to stop voting in lock step with Obola. Harry Reid was the Senate Dems ass cover to avoid consequences in voting against Obola. It didn’t work. They voted for Dirty Harry and went along with his tactics and it blew up on them. The remaining Senate Dems are NOT going to vote with Obola reflexively any longer if it will not go over with their constituents. So Obola lost the automatic Dem votes too. This is a catastrophe. If Obola goes too cray-cray with the cocky defiance he will be removed (pushed by his own party) from office.

        • The Klown says:

          It will be interesting to see what the Democrats do during the lameduck session. Will they try to jam thru some appointments like a new AG?

          • The Klown says:

            I can guarantee that if Mitch McConnell keeps Harry Reid’s new rules in place the Democrats will scream bloody murder.

          • Lulu says:

            The ones that are up for re-election in 2016 will have to have second thoughts. The ones that lost (that don’t want to be governor or something) can be spiteful. The old saw that the electorate is stupid and doesn’t remember anything has been proven wrong with Obolacare. Little stuff the voters forget. Big stuff (like shit insurance with huge premiums) they don’t forget. The Senate Dems are already blaming Obola so I don’t expect them to be very cooperative to the WH behind the scenes. The fear of him is gone.

          • Remember that the biggest hit is yet to come. The Obamacare Employer mandate is set to strike soon. The Republicans sued the president for the delay. Are they now gonna force it to begin or will there be a play to reform it. They don’t actually take office until the new year

  3. The Klown says:

    I guess he read a newspaper this morning.

  4. Lulu says:

    Look at this map. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dre/politics/election-results-2014?office=house The under-reported story is in the House. The Dems lost about 23 seats. Many Dem incumbents just barely won re-election. The map shows all Repub except for the extreme east and west coasts, minority districts, and old prog/college town/union districts. Democrats are now basically a minority (in both senses) regional party. Historically 2008 will be viewed as the year the Dems committed suicide.

  5. Falstaff says:

    As everybody knows, the hard part will be actually governing. I hope the adults are in charge and we don’t have to witness impeachment proceedings in the style of Gingrich. We do have a golden opportunity to really stick it to the Dems: with control of key state legislatures and governorships, the Rs can get down to the business of countering their “demographic advantage” by requiring proof of citizenship for all voters and weeding out the voter registrations. Time will tell…

    • The Klown says:

      I am working on a post that is tentatively titled “What the GOP should do now (but probably won’t)”

      • DeniseVB says:

        Great title, do it ! That’s most important, the GOP doesn’t get a free ride from me either. Would like to see commonsense prevail with the remaining Dems too. Another third of the Senate comes up for re-election in 2 years.

    • Constance says:

      Call me silly but I think the Republicans will act in the interests of the Citizens of this country. Because if they don’t this election should be a lesson to them too, the Citizens will toss their arrogant asses out in the street like they did to Dems last night.

    Guess who is hearing CRICKETS!!!!!! on her Facebook?

    Except for one “We still LOVE you, Wendy Davis! picture with her backlit like a freaking angel. And another post, which made me happy, by a friend who used to practice law with Tom Cotton.

    Votermom
    WEare screwed with Wolf. Taxes are going to go up. He is so frigging typical when it comes to education. Throw more money at it without a plan. For fucks sake kids became doctors attending one room school houses.
    I spoke with a woman that thinks homework is racist. Her view is that it punishes black kids.
    Huh?
    I attempted to discuss cognitive structure and how the brain works. New concepts have to be tied to old for them to be effective.Everything is math. I do not see why the frigging geniuses running schools do not get that math is everything. I eould have two math classes everydsy one in the morning and then one in the afternoon. Then a to of homework. Remember the old. Adage if you use a word three times it becomes yours. Introduce re-enforce review. How does dumping money alter basic truths
    Not enough homework in my book. 7 to 8 everynight is education. Weekends are not a pass. Have loads of common core books and math gamrs. She gets ten minutes of assigned work I create 50 more.
    You also cannot win with Common Core. I bought everything I coulf find but every test has 2 or 3 questions that come out of no where. An A is not an option. Seems to me that it is set up that noone fails and no one excels. Apply the same standard to the football field and basketball court and we can talk.

    • votermom says:

      On the bright side the GOP still holds the PA legislature, I think the senate actually picked up 3 seats.
      So Wolf won’t have a carte blanche, I hope.
      Damn Penn Staters…

    • DandyTIger says:

      Education is a disaster. Like with failed cities and states that have been Dem run for decades, education is another example of Dem control. The answer to education and Detroit is more money of course. SMH

  8. WMCB says:

    If the GOP has a brain in their head, they will start with some housecleaning and SIMPLE bills to get people and businesses some relief and hope.

    Get the Keystone pipeline going, FFS. Stop the Obamacare fines from happening. Do some kind of major tax break/incentives for small business.

    They need to come out guns blazing with small, widely supported, TARGETED legislation to get jobs moving, not get bogged down with massive legislation. I don’t want to hear the word “comprehensive” leave their damn mouth.

    On a minor and selfish note, I WANT MY FUCKING LIGHTBULBS BACK!!!!

    • Constance says:

      To hell with “comprehensive” That concept is Bullshit. The whole goal of anything “comprehensive” is to puke out 2000 page lawyer blabber to confuse everyone so the the multinational corporations can profit from screwing the citizens.

      • WMCB says:

        Some European country ( I think Switzerland?) actually passed a law that ANY legislation has to be written to be understandable to the average (educated) citizen. I think that’s a wonderful law.

      • Somebody says:

        I’d like to see a return to smaller agency by agency budgets. It’s too easy to hide pork in the huge omnibus bills.

    • elliesmom says:

      I want mine back, too. The stash is dwindling.

      Stealing the lightbulbs thing:

  11. mothy67 says:

    I want to know where my money is going. Allegheney County passed a 7% alcohol tax. I was eriting a 7 hundred dollar check once a week(kept a separate account for it) That is 2800 a month. Nine bars in the area. Guess how many busses run. ZERO NOT One. Millions have to be collected but the transit system is still in the red. They cut service and increased fare. So where is the money going. Millions of a tax infused tax result in reduced service? WTF. They cry oh my god do they cry that it is only fair that a community that has no bus service pay. Huh? PA has in place transit through medicare/medicaid for the disabled.
    Also bike racks piss me off. They add ten minutes to a commute.

  12. WMCB says:

    • Constance says:

      The Reid Rule was dictated by Obots. It was cynical and it desecrated one of The Peoples houses, the Senate. So Dems, you can now thank the Obots for where they led your party and our country.

      • WMCB says:

        The Senate rules were set up *deliberately* to give the minority party more power/say. Dems, once they had power, wanted the minority to sit down and shut up. I don’t like all the things republicans do when they get power. But the modern prog Dems? They just go uncontrolled hog wild when THEY get it. Like, no brakes at all.

        Unless things change drastically, I will never, ever vote to put power in those greedy authoritarian hands again. Ever.

    Obama’s inability to forge relationships beyond his incestuous inner circle contributed to this debacle. I think it’s pretty obvious by now this is not a self-aware man so of course he doesn’t see the lesson in this massive loss. Oh no – they lost because we didn’t see MORE of him! Stick a fork in him.

    Not far from where I live they are fracking. Hard to get a liquor liscence I had one with an old unsellable building. Guy bought the building to get the liscense. Paid absurd amount and gave the building away. Frirnd bought a an RV on craigs list for a few hundred and sold water coffe and sammies. She made so much she now has ten food trucks. She bought an old RV and parlayed it into an industry. NO HIllary she did not build that.

  22. elliesmom says:

    If we could take minute here to congratulate the ladies for last night – For the first time there will be 100 women in the House of Representatives. One of them will be Mia Love, the first black Republican congresswoman. Some states will sending their first woman to the Senate ever, including Jodi Ernst, who will be the first female combat vet there. A woman became the youngest woman ever elected to the House in NY last night. Saira Blair, college freshman, campaigned from her dorm room and won a seat in the WV state house. Yesterday was the first time she was eligible to vote. While I may not see a woman elected president, I at least know the field of available candidates is growing.

  24. swanspirit says:

    If anything was a direct repudiation of Obola and his policies, it was the defeat of Anthony Brown here in Maryland . Brown was even being called Obama’s ” mini me ” , and both Barack and Michelle Obama , and Hillary campaigned for him here . He was Obama’s lapdog O’Malley’s Lieutenant Governor , and supported every tax hike here in Maryland , and was directly responsible for the debacle that was the rollout of Obamacare here in Maryland .

    Larry Hogan is a newcomer as a candidate , and although he had been a member of former republican governor Bob Ehrlich’s cabinet ; he was not serving in any office when he ran .

    From Wikipedia In 2011, Hogan founded Change Maryland.[5] The purpose of the anti-tax organization[6] is to advocate for lower taxes and less government spending in Maryland. As the chairman of Change Maryland, Hogan has conducted numerous studies on the economic impact of the O’Malley-Brown Administration[7] and its passage of 40 consecutive tax and fee hikes,[8] and has emerged as one of the leading voices of opposition to the Annapolis establishment.

    His wife Yumi , is Korean- American , and is an adjunct instructor at the super, bohemian, ne plus ultra ,avante garde Maryland Institute College of Art. ( I love that School )
    Larry Hogan 53.83% Republican 924,605 Anthony Brown 44.79% Democrat 769,409
    These results are just stunning !!

    I voted for him , thinking at least he might get enough votes to send a message , but I really had no expectation that he would win . I think the message was sent !!!!!. I don’t think President Barack Delusional Obama is getting that message , but it could not be more loud or more clear , and pretty close to home, here in the bedroom state .

    • DeniseVB says:

      Is Dan Bongino’s race still too close to call ? Love that guy!

      • swanspirit says:

        Yes, he is wating for the absentee ballot count, as the difference is only 1500 votes !! I SO want him to win , and if by some chance he doesn’t , I hope Hogan gives a good job in his administration !

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I voted for Hogan as well. I am still in shock – especially at the numbers. I know Brown is not well liked but I figured a lot of people would vote straight D tickets.

      I have not looked at any results by area and am wondering if the expected support did not turn out to vote. It was a nice day so I figured they would be busing people all over the place to get the votes for Brown.

      My condolences to PA. Wolf is a jerk of the first order.

      Maybe they assumed Maryland would vote for Brown and sent all the buses across the Mason-Dixon to PA?

    A really great article on modern “professional ” feminism http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/dgreenfield/this-is-what-a-feminist-looks-like/#disqus_thread

    In Nigeria and Iraq, Muslim armies are selling women as slaves. Iran hanged a woman for fighting off a rapist. ISIS was more direct about it and beheaded a woman who resisted one of its fighters.

    But we don’t have to travel to the Middle East to see real horrors. The sex grooming scandal in the UK involved the rape of thousands of girls. The rapists were Muslim men so instead of talking about it, the UK’s feminists bought $75 shirts reading, “This is what a feminist looks like” which were actually being made by Third World women living sixteen to a room.

    This was what a feminist looked like and it wasn’t a pretty picture.

    A feminist looks like a professional activist wearing a $75 t-shirt made by slave labor while proclaiming that she is a feminist. It isn’t fighting for the rights of women that makes her a feminist. It’s the pricey fashion statement of someone who toots their own horn while exploiting less fortunate women.

    The world changed when drudge called out Monica. This is my favorite blog and I would love to see a sister site that culls the world. Absurd amount of info swept under the rug. Billions spent on obola but 300 hundred girls become sex slaves under islamic pigs. A 12/13/14 year old gitl being sold at auction.World is silent. Harsh but imagine a young girl being fucked by filth.
    An aggregate aite that reports .
    If I had the money I hire all of you to opine.
    Drudge fueled but it has become almost a parody. Why not funnel the intelligence of you peeps into more?
    I am blown away by the perspective of the members here. I think there are a ton of smarty pantaznts here. Drudge is what it is. How about an aggregate site with opinions posted by the site. I am interested in how an actual nurse in Texas feels about obola and a suburban asian american grappling with Common Core than anderson pooper
