Obama Wants Congress to “Pass the Bill Right Now” That Won’t Give - Gateway Pundit




******
 White House dogwasher Valerie Jarrett says that Congress needs to pass Obama’s jobs bill “right now,” not one minute later.  The only problem … Obama’s bill hasn’t even been written or submitted to Congress.

How hard did the Obama administration try to sell Dear Ruler’s jobs plan to the ObamaMedia?


The former director of the Congressional Budget Office says that Obama’s jobs plan is long on promises and weak on substance.

The Cato Institute explains that the Obama jobs act is full of bad ideas.

One can’t help but think that at least part of the reason the stock market plunged 300 points on Friday was a signal of no economic confidence in Obama's plan.

Obama’s push to extend a payroll tax cut has apparently united a rare combination of conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats in opposition.

Obama and Our 9/11 Trauma - American Thinker

By Stella Paul
Where did the idea of Obama come from? Let's examine an obvious, yet overlooked source: the rubble of the Twin Towers. 9/11 was the most traumatic day in American history, and its horrors left deep gashes in our national soul. We stumbled around in pain and confusion for years, groping for a magical salve to heal our wounds -- and there, suddenly, was Barack Hussein Obama.

As we turn our gaze from our current Obama-induced agonies to remember the terror attacks ten years ago, let's do ourselves the favor of honesty and admit how tightly the two are connected.

On that fatal Tuesday, as the World Trade Center and Pentagon lay in ruins, President George Bush spoke to the American people, with simple words that pierced the heart of our new situation: "Freedom itself was attacked this morning... And freedom will be defended."

But as it turned out, millions of Americans were not ready to defend freedom. Despite the "United We Stand" posters plastered everywhere, Americans almost immediately divided into two irreconcilable camps: those willing to understand the nature of our enemy and those who wanted to deny it, at all cost.

Within days of the attacks, a friend coolly informed me, "the people in the Twin Towers deserved it." Still reeling from that shock, I almost lost it when another friend admiringly compared bin Laden to George Washington. Soon thereafter, a well-known academic in my circle complained that the sudden outpouring of patriotism made her sick.

This utter madness, which I thought would be confined to the fringe, rapidly spread to every corner of elite society. The more we learned about the savagery of the Islamist world, the more our moral and cultural superiors turned their wrath on us, instead of the enemy.

Gaffetastic. At 9-11 Tribute Obama Thinks “Bow and Spear” Means to Bend at the Waist (Video) - Gateway Pundit




Gaffetastic.
Obama is so used to assuming the position that he thinks “bow and spear” in Psalm 46 means he’s supposed to bend at the waist. As Freeper ExSabotSender noted,
“If he had been familiar with text he would have know that Bow – is a reference to a weapon of war like in bow and arrow. Two more weapons of war follow in verse 9 – the spear and chariot. Instead he pronounced the word as Bow – to been at the waist, the front of a boat, or limb of a tree.”

Are You Ready For 24 Hours Of Al Gore? - Stop The ACLU
Yes, this is the week when the Goracle (who typically makes well over $100,000 per speech, and wants $145,000 to speak to Washington University) takes to the airwaves to try and convince everyone that he isn’t a crank and that people using large amounts of energy, like TV stations broadcasting propaganda, are the reason that it gets hot/cold/wet/dry
Former US vice-president Al Gore will renew his 30-year campaign to convince skeptics of the link between climate change and extreme weather events this week in a 24-hour global multi-media event.
24 Hours of Reality will broadcast a presentation by Al Gore every hour for 24 hours across 24 different time zones from Wednesday to Thursday, with the aim of convincing climate change deniers and driving action against global warming among households, schools and businesses.

The green jobs nightmare! - Neal Boortz
Lest we forget that in 2009, Barack Obama appointed an avowed communist, Van Jones, to be his greens jobs czar.  That’s right, a communist was the president’s “special advisor” on one of the pillars of his economic plan: green jobs.  Actyually … that was pretty much what you might have expected, since so many communists went running to the environmental movement when the world communist movement collapsed.   I just want us to remember this mindset as we approach this story about how the Obama administration then went and “invested” $535 million in the now bankrupt solar company, Solyndra. 
In September of 2009, the Obama administration heralded a $535 million loan guarantee for Solyndra as a “game changer” for the green energy movement.  Vice President Biden emphasized that Solyndra would be creating thousands of permanent jobs: “Jobs you can raise a family on, green jobs, jobs that will serve as a foundation for a stronger American economy.”  Biden said, “These are the jobs that are going to define the 21st century and the jobs — going to allow America to compete and to lead like we did in the 20th century.”
So much for that.

BYRON YORK: Despite Social Security Stance, Older Voters Like Rick Perry. “In a new CNN poll that finds Perry at the front of the Republican pack, the Texas governor’s lead among GOP voters age 65 and older is actually bigger than his lead among younger voters. . . . The results seem likely to encourage Perry to stick with his ‘Ponzi scheme’ critique of Social Security.”

UPDATE: Stanley Kurtz: Perry and the Ponzis. “Until a half a minute ago, liberals called Social Security a Ponzi scheme, too. . . . Where today are the liberal and centrist Democrats who only yesterday called Social Security a Ponzi scheme and supported bold reforms? Where now are the columnists and editors at Newsweek and the New York Times willing to reward truth-tellers and to criticize reporters who cover for cowardly politicians? The fate of Rick Perry’s blunt talk may tell us more than we want to know, not only about Social Security, but also about who we are and what we have become.” For certain values of the word “we,” anyway.

Neither Perry nor Romney is helping the cause of Social Security reform



In Obama’s jobs speech, did he vindicate Rick Perry on Social Security?

Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme, according to … moonbat Chris Matthews?

Like a page out of the Democrat handbook, Mitt Romney didn’t wait long to begin his attack on Rick Perry over Social Security.



AP Removes Story on Perry Campaigning During Wildfires - AIM
According to Politico, the Associated Press has removed a story about Texas residents questioning Gov. Rick Perry’s return to the campaign trail while the wildfires continue to rage in Texas.
The AP issued a mandatory kill when they discovered that the person who asked the question about Perry’s campaigning was not an area resident.

Oops!

The story has been replaced with the following text:
BASTROP, Texas — The Associated Press has withdrawn its story about Texas residents questioning why Gov. Rick Perry has not spent more time in areas affected by wildfires. The single person who asked about Perry’s involvement was not an area resident.

That Presidential Look: The Bad, the Beautiful, and Voting-Booth Realities - The American Thinker

While there was more than one reason why John McCain was a long shot to win the 2008 general election, a big one was something almost no one talked seriously about: appearance.

That is to say, when was the last time an old-looking, white-haired, half-bald man won the presidency?

If you think this piece will be satire or fluff, think again. It rather will be very serious commentary about a very silly -- but painfully real -- phenomenon.

When people do discuss looks' impact on presidential fortunes, they usually treat the matter as a joke; we may hear, for instance, how a candidate must have "great hair" to enjoy rarefied commander-in-chief air. But if professional pundits and politics wonks think it's beneath them to wax anything but comedic on this issue, the joke is on them. After all, this is the age of American Idol.

New Book Alleges That Jackie O. Called MLK “Phony” And “Tricky” - Loop 21

A new book titled “Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy,” says that the former first lady didn’t think too highly of civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
She called him “phony” and “tricky” in a 1964 interview in which she spoke about life in the White House.
Former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy described King as “phony” and “tricky” in a 1964 interview just made public in a new book about White House life with her husband.
Kennedy, in one of seven Q&A sessions with former JFK aide Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., said King had mocked her slain husband’s funeral Mass and its celebrant, Cardinal Richard Cushing.
“He made fun of Cardinal Cushing and said he was drunk at it,” Kennedy recounted. “And things about they almost dropped the coffin. I just can’t see a picture of Martin Luther King without thinking, you know, ‘That man’s terrible.’”

100 protesters burn American flag outside U.S. embassy in London during minute's silence for 9/11

Protesters set fire to the U.S. flag outside the American embassy in London yesterday during a minute's silence to mark the moment the first hijacked airliner hit the World Trade Centre. A group of 100 Muslim radicals, including members of Muslims Against Crusades, shouted 'USA terrorists' and brandished anti-American placards. One protester in Grosvenor Square said: 'You will always face suffering, you will always face humiliation, unless you withdraw your troops from Muslim lands.

Iranian TV Loves Soros Report on Islam - AIM
As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 was approaching, a new report from the Soros-funded Center for American Progress (CAP) purported to examine a conservative network of people and groups described as “Fear Inc.” and said to be guilty of “Islamophobia” toward Muslims. The report seemed deliberately designed to take the attention away from events in the U.S. that were in progress to commemorate the deaths of almost 3,000 Americans killed by radical Muslims on 9/11.
On cue, another Soros-funded group, Media Matters, ran with excerpts from the report, emphasizing the “role played by right-wing media” such as Fox News in supposedly fanning the flames of “Islamophobia.”
But CAP has its own propaganda network, which includes foreign propaganda channels Al-Jazeera and Iranian Press TV, an official government-funded propaganda channel.

Well the Republicans have the problem that they now have subpoena power so if they started making those charges they would look like idiots when reality did not conform to their nonsense. Already Issa has had to abandon a once promising investigation when the evidence that came in showed that it was Republicans rather than Democrats who acted improperly.

But you are right that it is significant that despite controlling the House, the Republicans have not been able to support any of those claims.
