5.7% Growth? Not Even! Dems Vote 1.9 Trillion Debt Increase.

January 31, 2010

While Obama sacrifices and ‘finds’ TWENTY BILLION DOLLARS in spending cuts…. I’d say “WHAT?!!!” – but my editor yells at me when I get redundant. The hutzpah of this bunch, from the President right on down, is BREATHTAKING. With Democrats under challenge in states all over the union you would think that Congressional Democrats would understand that a highly motivated and IRATE electorate is watching their every move with the intensity of a laboratory technician studying a virulent microorganism. Good simile though. With Illinois, like Massachusetts, no longer a guaranteed lead-pipe cinch Democrat playground.

States all over the nation are experiencing the same transformation. California’s Senator Barbara Boxer is being challenged by former Congressman Tom Campbell (R). Tom has a comfortable lead on the GOP pack but get this… he is running only FOUR POINTS behind Babs in this West Coast liberal wonderland.  For him to be this close early in the race does not bode well for Boxer. In the severely economically depressed Central Valley all GOP candidates are running ahead of her.

Tom Campbell

With the extreme left wing California Assembly about to fall upon Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s veto sword over the absolutely preposterous TWO HUNDRED BILLION DOLLAR California State Single Payer Health Care Bill now sitting in the Assembly, California with an almost 40 billion dollar budget shortfall  and the state about to declare itself out of money again, voters are likely to come out of their self-induced stupor long enough to remember that it is Democrats that are doing all this to them and that probably won’t do Boxer much good either.

FIVE POINT SEVEN PERCENT GROWTH in the GDP… and over half of it attributed to inventory replenishment,  most of that dependent on fiscal and monetary stimulus. Economist Nouriel Roubini, who predicted the  banking crash and recession, stated that the second half of this year will fade to just  1.5 % growth as stimulus dollars decline and fade away WITH NO JOB GROWTH. Watch for Obama to trumpet TEMPORARY CENSUS JOBS as a spectacular INCREASE in employment. But then we’ve seen that he’ll do or say just about anything.

California Patriots should be pounding out the faxes, emails, phone calls, letters and visits to State Assembly members’ offices – remind them that what happened in Massachusetts could happen  in California as well. Meanwhile Congressional Democrats WITHOUT a single Republican vote plunged this country ONE POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLARS FARTHER IN DEBT. Undoubtedly clearing the way for more Democrat drunken spending binges.
These people have to be stopped… It’s my job… it’s your job… IT’S OUR JOB!!

Illinois, The Next Massachusetts – Obama Tries To Bluff GOP.

January 30, 2010

Here we go. The primary election is February 2, 2010. The unfortunate Roland Burris’s  US Senate seat is up for grabs… appointed by the disgraced former Governor Rod Blagojevich. Burris was unable to garner support for a re-election bid and so announced his retirement.

Illinois Conservative patriot groups are backing solid Conservative Don Lowery (R), a retired circuit court judge, former County State’s Attorney and a VietNam veteran (R), and Andrew Andrzejewski, a Conservative businessman and political outsider running against the entrenched Illinois corrupt political machine. Both of these candidates are running uphill battles against well-funded political machines. Whatever you can do to to help them between now and the 2nd of February please do. Go online and plug into their websites.

Judge Don Lowery

If we can pull off another upset in Illinois it will send another unmistakable message to the Democrats who are STILL working behind closed doors to sneak a health care bill past us.

Andrew Andrzejewski

President Obama was invited to speak in front of the Republican Party Conference and went on an 82 minute diatribe, interspersed with some sharp questioning and pointed statements from Republican legislators. Obama took on the same strident tone that he used on the Supreme Court and his attempted bullying of the Republicans is probably not going to gain him many friends among the assembled Congressmen and Senators.

Obama alternated between whining complaint and petulant accusation, at one point accusing Republican opponents of portraying his stalled health care scheme as a Bolshevik plot. Uhh, Mr. Obama, that may be the truest statement you’ve ever made. He further accused them of telling their constituents that he is doing all kinds of crazy things to destroy America… right, right and right. But, President Obama, we didn’t need the Republicans or anyone else to tell us… we figured it out all by ourselves, say, back about last February.

His laughable attempt to somehow ‘hold Republicans responsible’ for not signing on to his delusional policies for entrapping the American people in his BOLSHEVIK PLOT is going to have just the exact opposite effect that he’s expecting. He’s read the opposition as poorly as he has the American people. Of course he’s no ideologue… no, not at all…..
We are not buying it, Obama… no, not even… not a bit.

Judicial Intimidation – More Obama Third World Marxist Tactics.

January 29, 2010

Scoring the President’s speech was a breeze. There was not a single word of truth in anything he said. Period. One hour, nine minutes and forty four seconds of absolute statist crap. If Mr. Obama thought that his HUGOESQUE farce impressed anyone other than himself he was deluded. Not even his own party could be moved to support him in the face of overwhelming opposition from most of the country.

When even the reliable  moderate Fred Barnes asks, “Haven’t we heard this speech before?”, you know your tune isn’t playing. But Fred, whom I seldom agree with, has a point… EVERY Obama speech sounds like every other Obama speech. That’s what happens when your ideology bumps into the nations reality. Barnes also said that it was the ‘least fresh’ State of the Union speech he had ever heard. Wow! Another point of agreement. I think Fred was speaking for most of the nation, aside from the rehashed liberal gibberish I referred to yesterday there were more assaults on the middle class, via pumping more private sector dollars into “job” programs which will only grow more government jobs and short term jobs, which will die as the money runs out. Watch for the big push for centralized government programs all over again.

Fred Barnes

What seems to be the message from President Obama is that he DIDN’T get the message that we, the people of the United States of America, have been sending him. We don’t want your massive government spending, taxes, regulation, and control of our health care system. Congress, however, HAS been getting the message in abundance. YOU ALL can take credit for that. It’s YOU, the American people, who are responsible for what happened in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts. It wasn’t the party machinery of the RNC. It was your unremitting efforts at getting the message out there that WE WILL NOT TOLERATE Obama’s back room, third world Marxist politics.

Obama urged Democrat Representatives and Senators to fall in behind him and ‘win one for the Gipper’. All the while they are scattering like a covey of frightened quail while counting the days until November. Few will be willing to commit political seppuku for Obama’s ideologically driven delusions.

Obama’s shameful third world treatment of the honorable members of the highest court in the land, and the DEMOCRATS who participated with him in it, was vintage Hugo Chavez or perhaps Mao Tse Tung. Especially given that he premised his Stalinist attack on a lie… which after all WAS pure Stalin. Few of the members of the Court will forget about about this treatment while Obama remains in office which may turn out to be a good thing for the rest of America.

Supreme Court Judges Listen To The State Of The Union Address.

The Supreme court made the correct decision overturning the portion of the unconstitutional McCain-Feingold Act that limited the freedom of individual speech, all leftist claims aside. The laws concerning foreign contribution to US election campaigns were UNTOUCHED AND REMAIN IN FORCE!
Another Obama BALD FACED LIE.
What last night taught us is that Barack Obama is far too ideologically committed to do anything like a Bill Clinton shift to the right. This is going to mean that at least for us the fight continues unabated.

Our marching orders are clear. We need to fight these people over every single item of their agenda and give no ground at all, for in fact is that not the way they have dealt with us?
Continue the Conservative march to victory in November and beyond. Shout the praises of freedom and the American way of life to your friends and your neighbors, and defeat those who would see us drown in the third world misery that would be Obama’s America.

Nowhere Man’s Address…Return To Sender. Obama’s Bomb.

January 28, 2010

I promised you the same repackaged garbage that our President has been putting out all along, with some fresh and a little recycled liberal garbage thrown in for garnish… and he delivered in spades. In the second longest speech in the history of state-of-the-union messages, Barack Obama presided over a real yawner, (ask Harry Reid) and managed to unify Republican, Independent and Conservative opposition to his extremist policies, and insult the Supreme Court, an act which he my live to regret and turn the military solidly against him. Once again the entire thrust and focus was on himself.

Noted history professor and PhD, Charlie Self, called Obama’s speech “the most self aggrandizing Presidential address in history”. Obama was hoping to quell incipient unrest and possible defections from Democrat Representatives who, given the debacles in Massachusetts and the deterioration of the UNIVERSALLY despised health care bill, are looking to November with justifiable trepidation.

Some Democrats could not withhold their anger. Representative Stephen Lynch, D-Mass, speaking to Obama Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner at hearing about the Wall Street bailout, “It just stinks to the high heaven what happened here”. Whether he knew it or not Representative Lynch hit it right on the national ‘head of the nail’ echoing American taxpayers. Democrats are also angry at the loss of stature that Obama’s failed policy initiatives have caused them.

There has been a marked reluctance amongst Democrats who have been bullied, pushed and pulled by Obama and the Congressional leadership to walk in the usual Democratic ‘lockstep’.
Obama also engendered the ire of the members of the Supreme Court. Saying that they had exposed the American body politic to “foreign influences” by their decision to return the FIRST AMENDMENT to the CONSTITUTION and the AMERICAN PEOPLE, Obama made himself no friends among the Supremes, as at one point Justice Samuel Alito mouthed to him, “YOU’RE WRONG”.

The best thing that could be said for his touted ‘boost for the middle class and small business’ is that it won’t work, will probably lead to massive inflation and a ‘double-dip recession. Business is so confident in Obama’s policies that Home Depot announced layoffs and Sam’s Club is laying off ELEVEN THOUSAND PEOPLE.

In proof of Einstein’s posit that the surest sign of insanity was repeating the same failed action over and over, Obama is seeking to add ANOTHER stimulus to the money that has been literally flushed down the toilet with little or no accountability, and no jobs other than government and temporary jobs that will go away as soon as the money is gone. It’s the exact same failed policies and assaults on the private sector and the middle class that got us here. As far as the President’s ‘freeze on discretionary spending’ goes Charles Krauthammer put it most succinctly, “it’s like using a Q-tip” on the problem.

Obama has also tripped the third rail fuse on the “don’t ask don’t tell” issue as his payoff to the gay lobby. Almost universally condemned by the military and service members, this is just plain stupid policy to inflict on a military committed to combat worldwide in a war of extermination with a fanatical foe that is sworn to the destruction of this country.

Conservative Republicans have their work cut out for them to see that Obama’s socialist agenda never comes to fruition. It is, after all, only “the end of the beginning”.

More John McCain? Remember McCain-Feingold… Shamnesty.

January 27, 2010

Does anyone out there seriously think we need six more years of John McCain’s RINO deal-making with the very people who are trying to steal our freedoms? McCain, coming off of his failed Presidential bid, has garnered the support of some fellow RINOs in the party such as Florida Governor Charlie Crist, in payment of political favors received, and Sarah Palin, I imagine for much the same reason.

I wish she’d reconsider. I’m beginning to think that she may need to go back and re-tool her political science and history credentials, given her glaring inability to field Bill O’Reilly’s questions on their recent interview. Don’t get me wrong, I like Sarah Palin and see her as a potential superstar in the Conservative political movement. But if she can’t get past O’Reilly, who after all was simply reiterating criticisms and questions that had already been posited, she’d have one hell of a time on the national political stage and in particular a 2012 presidential bid.

John McCain - CBS 'Face The Nation' Jan24, 2010

Her support for McCain may prove a liability in the eyes of Conservatives, and not a few Independents, who view John McCain as being far too liberal on critical issues facing this country. There are far too many people like myself who remember one of McCain’s more enduring political liabilities, the 2002 McCain-Feingold Act, thankfully largely overturned by a recent Supreme Court decision.
All leftist media bleating and ‘soft money’ blather aside, this bill was nothing more than a direct assault on the FIRST AMENDMENT of our Constitution.

ANY act that bridles or abridges the right of free speech, whether for an individual, a group of individuals, a club, company, corporation or union, is a direct violation of the First Amendment of our Constitution. That McCain was willing to sell the Constitution he SWORE to defend down the river for short term political gain says worlds about him.

Another McCain super liability, one which arguably may have tipped the balance in costing him the support of Conservatives and Independents, was his support for the McCain-Kennedy Comprehensive Amnesty Bill. McCain was always at the forefront of those who stated that ‘WE HAD TO’ have illegal aliens in this country to do the work that AMERICANS wouldn’t do. Voters remembered an ill-conceived statement in front of a blue-collar audience that Americans couldn’t work in the lettuce fields. He foolishly challenged, “You can’t do it my friend”.

The entire illegal alien question is the silent ‘third rail’ of American politics. The left wants illegals for a super welfare-class of guaranteed Democrat voters. Conversely, business sees them as a continuing source of low cost labor. AMERICAN CITIZENS, including most HISPANICS, see them as a drag on the economy, on social services, on the criminal justice system, on education and on the sovereignty of the nation. That’s what McCain is remembered for.

Then there was the ‘GANG OF FOURTEEN’ in which McCain supported the Democrats in sustaining judicial filibusters. Thumbing his nose and then sticking it in the eye of Conservatives to boot. His oft-touted ‘maverick’ status which brought him the attention and plaudits of the liberal press did little to endear him to us.
With a record like this one wonders why the citizens of Arizona continued to return him to the Senate term after term?

There is the propensity of all voters to return incumbents to office however illogical that may seem. In John McCain’s case there is his status as a genuine VietNam war hero. His jet fighter was shot down over North VietNam, he was captured and was severely brutalized and tortured while a POW. No one, least of all me, a Marine Veteran, would dishonor that. His politics however are a different matter.

J.D. Hayworth

McCain may be challenged by a solid conservative, former Representative J.D. Hayworth, who has not actually declared at this time. McCain’s people are in a positive sweat at this and are pulling out all the stops to try and discredit Hayworth. This alone would have a tendency to make me want to support him. With a rock-solid Conservative philosophy on all of the issues that are dear to
Americans and Arizonians, Hayworth stands a good chance of defeating McCain.
As a Conservative, if Hayworth declares I’m going to throw my support behind him. I urge you all to investigate his record and background as I have and support him as well.

Barack Obama – The Middle Class Untruth.

January 26, 2010

It’s not like, “Oh gravy!” “What’s he lying about this time?” It’s more like which SETS of multiple lies do I start with.
While Mr. Mealy Mouth was wowing the kiddies at an elementary school by standing feet above them, looking down his nose at the teleprompters again, Nancy and Harry, with Obama’s direct knowledge and approval, have concocted a complete Rube Goldberg torturing of the legislative process in order to cram that health bill down your throat, 60 votes or not.

They intend to achieve this by a bizarre bait and switch use of the reconciliation process and a total backdoor agreement between Senate and House versions to be enacted by Democrat Representatives, on a promise of signing on to it AFTER Obama signs the legislation and enacts changes agreed to beforehand to satisfy the various recalcitrant factions.

This one is so sleazy, fraudulent and most likely unconstitutional, as to be hard to absorb. It’s almost surrealistic. If the general populace learns of this one they may decide to go the tar and pitchfork route after all. Those Bluedogs? HAMMER THE HELL OUT OF THEM!! They are the Obama, Pelosi, Reid lynch pin on this. So it’s back to the mattresses for Conservatives and Independents. Call, fax, email and contact your local representative’s office. THIS HAS TO BE STOPPED.

Obama, meanwhile, is touting that his stimulus has ‘saved or created’ TWO MILLION JOBS. President Obama, YOU’RE LYING THROUGH YOUR EYE TEETH. The Obama administration has been doing everything diametrically opposite of what is required to create new jobs. His assaults on business and the MIDDLE CLASS (this is classic marxism). Assaults on the financial and banking sectors who small business is dependent on for funding and expansion. This is all a direct assault on the middle class because small businesses drive job creation in this country, and SMALL BUSINESS IS THE MIDDLE CLASS!

Now President Obama is going to pull a classic Saul Alinsky right shift and try to convince someone in the ‘middle class’ that he really cares. He is going to claim that the middle class has been under ‘assault’. Yeah Obama, by whom?
15 MILLION JOBS LOST. The worst month for housing sales in FORTY YEARS, down 17% in December. It’s the middle class that buy homes, Obama. It’s the middle class that can pay for them.
Remember all that Democratic junk paper? Those are YOUR foreclosures. Those are the poor that you and ACORN forced the banks to loan to, the ones who had not a prayer of being able to repay.

Your public debt Obama: $12,245,872,000,000 – a figure almost inconceivable in its scope, and you want to increase that debt ceiling by another ONE POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLARS, and you’re going to go in front of the country and preach about FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY?!!
You have destroyed those jobs, Obama, you have destroyed them by sucking billions upon billions of dollars out of the private sector.
You were speaking about being a one term President, Mr. Obama.
From your lips to God’s ears.

Obama – A Case Of Diminishing Returns.

January 25, 2010

David Axelrod is telling us breathlessly that his glorious leader is FEISTY. I guess from that monumental statement Conservatives should be quaking in our boots in anticipation of the drubbing to be handed out by the President during his state of the union address. Pardon us while we don’t get overly apprehensive about repackaged garbage. According to White House insiders President Obama will focus on JOBS and the DEFICIT. In other words, everything he has worked so diligently to destroy in his ideological drive to transform this nation a la Saul Alinsky.

David Axelrod

This is worth repeating. While Obama is busy revamping his message and telling us what a terrible raw deal he was handed by George Bush… remember that one? The one engineered by Democrats through Fannie and Freddie, Acorn, AIG and players like Goldman Sachs, with the willing accompaniment and active interference of people like Barack Obama, Barney Frank, Hillary Clinton and Chris Dodd, the chairman of the House Banking Committee? Good public servants all.

Our President has presided over a money glut of historic proportions, one which if allowed to run to its conclusion will cost the taxpayers of this country FOUR POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLARS by 2016. This is in addition to the 5.1 trillion Bush and Obama are already responsible for.
Now he wishes to speak of fiscal responsibility and will seek to find blame everywhere but where it belongs. During the Bush years we saw gains of THREE POINT SEVEN MILLION new jobs. Not as impressive as the Clinton years and the hysterical growth prior to the .com bubble burst, which left George Bush with a recession of his own to deal with, a fact that is conveniently discarded by the tame Democrat left-leaning press and most politicians, but still solid substantial job growth.

Now we come to Obama and the great GREEN job revolution that ain’t. Better than 15.3 million jobs lost to the recession, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The pathetically few jobs he can credit himself with are mostly government and / or temporary. Once again, GOVERNMENT PRODUCES NOTHING.

The American people know about job growth. They know where jobs come from and they also know that runaway regulation and massive tax increases are not going to create those jobs. Obama is putting out feelers for a SECOND stimulus to ‘jump start’ job growth. That seems to be the entire liberal philosophy… not accounting or taking responsibility for failed policy but taking refuge behind inanity such as “it needed more funding to do it right”, or “it needed more time”, which amounts to the same thing.

This is a mantra we’ve heard from the left consistently on one public policy issue after another for a hundred years. The definition of insanity is doing something with negative results and going back and doing it again and again expecting a different outcome.
President Obama, we await your little extravaganza with bated breath, while we observe your cronies scrambling for whatever political cover they can find.

Ohio – Obama Preaches To The Wrong Crowd.

January 24, 2010

I can’t get no satisfaction could well be President Obama’s mantra these days. Picked audiences or not it just keeps getting worse for the embattled Barack Obama, while telling us about the ‘green jobs’ that may or may not be created by research into solar power and wind generation, which most experts agree will never amount to more than 20 per cent of the power requirements of this country at best. All the while bringing the entire weight of the government and its unelected regulatory agencies to destroy our most abundant sources of energy, coal, oil and natural gas.

It is so typical of Obama to speak out of ‘both’ sides of his mouth… promoting an unproven and economically questionable technology while attacking another economic sector and its jobs.
Speaking of his administration’s recent debacles in collisions with the American people Obama said, “I’m not going to walk away just because it’s hard”. Sounds a lot like Hillary saying, “I don’t feel no way tired”.

John Boehner

The fact is he got his butt kicked good and hard. Ohio Republican Minority Whip, John Boehner, speaking of Ohio’s TEN POINT NINE PERCENT UNEMPLOYMENT rate, referred to Obama’s touting of his failed stimulus. “Tens of thousands of people have lost their jobs since the stimulus was enacted”. “Nine straight months of double digit unemployment”. The rest of the country echoes these words.

The entire machinery of Democratic governance nation wide is a runaway freight train on a collision course with the real world. Witness the State of California under a ‘liberal’ RINO (Republican In Name Only) Governor (Arnold Schwarzenegger), with a completely leftist state legislature more attuned to social engineering than action which would save this most populous state in the nation from bankruptcy and economic oblivion. With an unemployment rate at more than 10.6 percent, and some areas such as the San Joaquin Valley as high as FORTY PERCENT.

Ron Nehring

With our total state budget deficit at close to SIXTY BILLION DOLLARS and many of our Governor’s spending ‘cuts’ amounting to book-cooking budget shifts, the state legislature is proposing a universal health care system at an annual cost of some 200 billion dollars annually. I have run out of superlatives to describe this nuttiness but Ron Nehring, California State Republican Chairman, put it nicely, “California Democrats are either tone-deaf or delusional”.

This exact statement could be used just about anywhere in the country and especially at the national government level. The Democrats simply seem unable to stop or change course.
The American people will no longer tolerate BUSINESS AS USUAL, from Democrats or Republicans. That’s the message. Ignore it at your peril.

Obama: I, I, Me, Me, I’ll, I’ll….

January 23, 2010

Ohio brought out the best Barack Obama has to offer – and it isn’t much. He did a lot of speech-making about how he was doing this for us and how he was going to do that for us. The only problem, as far as the people of Ohio and the rest of the nation are concerned, is that it’s not about what he’s going to do for us, it’s about what he’s DOING TO US.

Obama had just come from telling America’s banking industry that the heavy regulatory hand of government will come crashing down on ‘the evil bankers’ who have been basking in the light of special regulatory exemptions. Saying nary a word about the Democrats, who for thirty years systematically created the environment that made Fannie and Freddie BILLIONS in very questionable sub-prime mortgages mandated by the government. Add the suicidally risky practice of the hedge and private equity funds in gambling with tons of this sub-prime paper, and bundling and reselling the same bunk paper. Democrats, meanwhile, taking huge bribes from these banking giants in the form of campaign contributions for running interference against those who sought to control and regulate what some forecast as pending disaster.

Obama In Ohio

Barack Obama, a reasonable person could argue, has not only done nothing to help America to recover from this Democrat created disaster, but everything possible to make it worse.
We can blame part of the problem on the Bush administration for allowing it to occur, not acting forcefully enough to control his own big government and not having guts enough to stand up to the Democrats. Bush did a lot of things wrong. He left us with a total deficit of 2.5 TRILLION dollars through 2008. Still, one must consider this includes the spending for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Barack Obama and George Bush can share the blame for an additional 2.6 TRILLION dollar increase for 2009.

Barack Obama, in what can only be considered to be a purposeful effort to bring this country down given the evidence at hand, is presiding over a drunken orgy of graft and pork-laden government bloat to the tune of an estimated FOUR POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLARS by 2016.
This is a figure beyond the average person’s comprehension.
Unfortunately for Mr. Obama the average people in the nation didn’t have to count the zeros to understand that we didn’t like what he was trying to do to us.
Therein, as they say, lies the rub. President Obama keeps saying what he’s going to do for ‘us’. We keep seeing what he’s doing TO us.

Massachusetts should have been a flare lit tip off, but Barack and that sorry clown Congress just don’t get it.
They are right back out there telling us what it is THAT WE WANT, while they are repackaging the same stinking pile that cost them New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts, in what has to be one of the most stunning upsets in politics for decades.
Barack just can’t spin it to where it sounds anything but empty and threatening to Americans and judging by his poll numbers, Americans aren’t buying.

Supremes Get One Right: Gut McCain Feingold.

January 22, 2010

After one of the WORST activist based decisions in history, that of April 2, 2007, which gave the EPA the power to treat auto CO2 emissions as an environmental issue, the Supreme Court seems to have finally put its robes on straight and actually READ the Constitution they are sworn to abide by. The court struck down major portions of the bill, especially those relating to the government’s regulation of free speech.

Senator John McCain’s support for this widely unpopular bill turned many Conservative and Independent voters against him, myself among them. That, and his support for amnesty among other “across the aisle” excursions, probably made him unelectable to anyone but party insiders. Frankly, I voted for him only as a vote against Barack Obama.

One hopes that the Supremes would continue their study of the Constitution for what it actually says and not in support of activist goals. It should be noted that President Obama’s choice for the Supreme Court, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, voted against the people of this country.

Supreme Court Of The United States

A number of other things have happened that should have Conservative patriots concerned since Scott Brown overturned Barack Obama’s brown, wormy apple cart. Nancy Pelosi, looking much like she had just bitten into one of those apples, admitted that they did not have the votes for the passage of Obama /Pelosi /Reid care. That’s a good thing, that’s a very good thing.
Democrats are scrambling to come up with something that doesn’t smell of defeat and absolute retreat for their boss, while in the face of an indisputable message from the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Obama announced that he would seek a ONE POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLAR increase in the debt ceiling. I’d say “WHAT?!!!” But I used that yesterday. In does point to the incredible disconnect between mainstream America and the ideologically-driven Democrat government, that in the face of a clear message to the contrary the administration would continue down this politically suicidal path.

President Obama also announced the government takeover of the school loan program, another ONE HUNDRED AND THREE BILLION DOLLAR government takeover.
There were another 36,000 jobs lost last week, bringing job losses in the ‘Obama recovery’ to some 480,000 since the beginning of the Obama Presidency. Meanwhile, the Feds are planning to give PROTECTED STATUS to 200,000 Haitians.
This begs the question, just who the heck is protecting AMERICAN CITIZENS?

Here’s a question to France and that ODIOUS blowhard in Venezuela… where are your aid convoys to Haiti? Gee, guess they must have been delayed. But then we saw the way France treated it’s colonials and how Chavez treats his citizens.

There are Conservatives lining up in challenges to the leftists all over the country and the march to defeat the attempted takeover of our country continues. Now is not a time to slack up or to rest on yesterday’s accomplishments. Now is the time for action. Action begins in your communities. Action begins with you.
