Has Obama done anything right? The White House War on Jobs, Obama: Muslim, Christian, or Marxist? Obama's Approval Hits All-Time Low, 500%” of US Black Farmers Sign Up For Obama’s USDA Reparations, Medical Care Facts and Fables, Was Hitler A Negro/Jew?

Was recently asked…. Has Obama done anything right?

No! Not a damn thing!

The White House War on Jobs - Townhall/Michelle Malkin

The "Summer of Recovery" is looking more and more like the Beltway Chainsaw Massacre for America's workers. As President Obama lolls on Martha's Vineyard with his well-heeled Chicago pals, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that 72 percent of people are very worried about joblessness and 67 percent are very concerned about massive government spending.

After a nearly $1 trillion fiscal stimulus and several multibillion-dollar corporate and union bailouts, unemployment remains stuck near 10 percent nationwide; jobless claims rose again last week. One shudders to think how many more jobs will be on the chopping block after the vacationing president finishes "recharging his batteries."

Where Are the New Jobs? - Townhall John Stossel

Why isn't the economy recovering? After previous recessions, unemployment didn't get stuck at close to 10 percent. If left alone, the economy can and does heal itself, as the mistakes of the previous inflationary boom are corrected.

The problem today is that the economy is not being left alone. Instead, it is haunted by uncertainty on a hundred fronts. When rules are unintelligible and unpredictable, when new workers are potential threats because of Labor Department regulations, businesses have little confidence to hire. President Obama's vaunted legislative record not only left entrepreneurs with the burden of bigger government, it also makes it impossible for them to accurately estimate the new burden.

Fishermen against Obama job destruction - Michelle Malkin

Leaders of the recreational and commercial fishing industry are planning a boat protest against federal policies Thursday outside the harbor of Vineyard Haven on Martha’s Vineyard, where President Obama and his family are summer vacationing.

The protest is being organized after a bipartisan, bicameral coalition of federal lawmakers — including the core of the President’s Congressional base on banking and health care issues — have given up hope of working productively with Obama’s top appointee for oceans and fisheries, Jane Lubchenco, who heads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Muslim, Christian, or Marxist? - Accuracy In Media

When questions came up during the campaign about Barack Obama’s religious affiliation, his aides flatly asserted that he was a “practicing Christian” and was “baptized” in the Trinity United Church of Christ. However, some of the same questions have come up again in the wake of opinion polls finding people confused about Obama’s religious identity. Our media cannot understand the confusion.

For most in the media, it is cut-and-dried: Obama is a Christian. People who don’t believe it are dumb or misled.

But calling yourself something is not the same thing as proving it is the case. This claim deserves to be scrutinized, even when it involves a sensitive and personal matter such as religious belief.

Unfortunately for Obama and his backers, the same Obama campaign apparatus which claimed that he is a baptized Christian asserted that the mysterious “Frank” in Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father, was just a black civil rights activist. It turned out that “Frank” was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party member under surveillance by the FBI who served as a mentor for a young Obama in Hawaii. The 600-page FBI file on Davis even suggests he was an espionage agent on behalf of the Soviet Union.

Dupes, a forthcoming book by Professor Paul Kengor, promises to take another close look at Obama’s Frank Marshall Davis connection.

So what the Obama presidential campaign says about Obama’s religious affiliation is not something to be taken at face value. They have a vested interest in making Obama look more acceptable to the American people.

As President, he has gone to church only a few times, which undermines the claim that he is a practicing Christian. People see him playing golf on Sunday; they don’t see him going to church.

Violating His Oath of Office? - The American Spectator

"I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
That is the oath of office taken by President Barack Obama, and every other President of the United States, as provided in Article II, Section I of the Constitution. The question I want to ask is can you "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States," without "preserving, protecting, and defending" the United States?

It’s Good To Be In Obama’s Government - Boortz

Take a look at these statistics from the New York Post. Considering these facts, is it any wonder that the private sector is scared to grow?
  • From January 2008 to January 2010, private-sector jobs plunged from 115.5 million to 106.8 million. But the number of federal, state and local public employees climbed up a tick, from 22.3 million to 22.4 million, as economist Veronique de Rugy recently noted. In other words, some 8.7 million private-sector jobs vanished, while the public sector gained 100,000 jobs.
     
  • Private-sector jobs began to fall almost immediately after the onset of the recession in December 2007. But state and local jobs remained steady, at least until last month, when states finally started laying off their workers, too. As for federal employment, as of July, it was nearly 10 percent higher than back then.
     
  • On Aug. 1, 2008, the portion of our national debt held by the public stood at $5.4 trillion. Now it stands at more than $8.8 trillion. As of the second quarter, GDP was growing at 2.4 percent, but many economists expect the growth rate to be revised down to 1.3 percent. So while our economy is growing at less than $19 billion per month, we are borrowing, based on the last two years, at the rate of more than $141 billion per month -- 7½ times faster.
This is exactly how Obama and the Democrats would have it. More government means more power to them. The private sector is the enemy. They will go to great lengths to demonize individual success and they will work to paint the rich as evil and greedy. The funny thing is .. at the rate we are going, the greedy rich will eventually be the very same government workers that they created. Then who will they pander to? Then whose pockets will they plunder?

Medical Care Facts and Fables - Real Clear Politics

By Thomas Sowell

There is so much political spin, and so many numbers games being played, when it comes to medical care, that we have to go back to square one and the simplest common sense, in order to get some rational idea of what government-run medical care means. In particular, we need to examine the claim that the government can "bring down the cost of medical care."

The most basic fact is that it is cheaper to remain sick than to get medical treatment. What is cheapest of all is to die instead of getting life-saving medications and treatment, which can be very expensive.

Despite these facts, most of us tend to take a somewhat more parochial view of the situation when it is we ourselves who are sick or who face a potentially fatal illness. But what if that decision is taken out of your hands under ObamaCare and is being made for you by a bureaucrat in Washington?

'1st term of Obama administration is over' - WND

Poll shows Americans aligned with states against fed intrusion

A new poll indicates that as far as accomplishments are concerned, "the first term of the Obama administration is over" because of the president's far-reaching federalization agenda that has included requirements to buy government-approved health insurance and to forbid enforcement of local laws protecting residents.

"That there is such strong opposition against the national government on a variety of issues must be alarming to those inside the Obama administration, in part because it creates a serious barrier they will have to overcome should they launch an effort to repair the image of the national government," said pollster Fritz Wenzel of Wenzel Strategies, which conducts the WND/WENZEL POLLS.

"It almost certainly eliminates any opportunity for popular support for any new national legislative initiative, such as cap and trade. To the extent that popular support is required to pass any sweeping new law, it is fair to surmise that the first term of the Obama administration is over," Wenzel said.

I swear Democrats are fucking retards!

In Touch: Deb Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) proclaims "the recession is over" - Doug Ross

Rejoice, Floridians: just below this sentence and to the left is the kind of dynamic intellect representing you in Washington.

Interviewed on Fox News by Greta Van Sustern this evening, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D) told viewers that the Great Recession is over. Those were her exact words: "the recession is over."

This should come as uplifting news for business owners and the unemployed, all of whom are suffering through one of the worst fiscal downturns in decades.

Wasser-Schultz is one of the more outrageous Democrats in Congress -- difficult though that may be to believe -- for her serial policy failures. For months now, WaSchultz has been proclaiming the success of the Obama Democrats' economic leadership. Plus health care. She really likes socialized health care.

Advice from the Ledge - The American Spectator

It's really not a great time to be a Democrat. The economy remains, for the most part, as depressed as the millions of Americans who cannot find work, while scandal has engulfed the Party, with key, ranking members under indictment. Taking fire from both friend and foe, the president is mired in trouble, primarily
of his own making. And probably most distressing of all, the latest Rasmussen Generic Congressional Ballot poll has them nine points behind their rivals. Things are so glum that they're even
begging
George W. Bush -- noted liar and warmonger -- to come to the aid of his successor and make peace. No, things are not looking good for Barack Obama and friends.

So, faced with all of this adversity, what is the donkey party to do, you ask? Well, unless you have been in a cave for the last two decades or so, you know that their game plan calls for them to go on offense. Now in the past, Friends of Bill gathered in the War Room to plot their forays; sometimes vicious character
assassination against mild-mannered targets like Henry Hyde or Ken Starr, while other events caused the bimbo eruption squad to swing into action to defame historical figures, pointing out that "everybody does it." More often than not, though, the playbook called for a few simple talking-point salvos aimed at the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy to do the trick.

Hitler DNA Tests Show He Likely Had Jewish, African Roots, Daily Mail Says

Adolf Hitler may have been descended from both Jews and Africans, DNA tests are indicating, the Daily Mail reported.

Journalist Jean-Paul Mulders and historian Marc Vermeeren used DNA to trace 39 of the Nazi leader’s relatives earlier this year, the Daily Mail said.

The relatives included an Austrian farmer, indentified only as a cousin named "Norbert H," the Daily Mail reported.

A chromosome called "Haplogroup E1b1b," or Y-DNA, in the relatives’ saliva samples is rare in Germany, as well as Western Europe, the newspaper said.

"It is most commonly found in the Berbers of Morocco, in Algeria, Libya and Tunisia as well as among Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews," Vermeeren said.

Mulders told Belgian magazine Knack that "[o]ne can from this postulate that Hitler was related to people whom he despised," the Daily Mail reported.
