Do As I Do ...

... uh, no.  Make that Do as I say I do.

This is funny:
Obama’s Ironic European Lecture
Mike Brownfield, The Foundry

Europe is in bad shape, there’s no doubt about it. The sovereign debt crisis continues to roil the continent, Greece may leave the euro, Spain may have to revise its budget deficit upward for the second time because of bad loans, and France has a new socialist president pledging more spending instead of austerity. So when the G8 leaders met last week, President Obama had some words of advice to offer — “Look at me and learn from my stellar example!”

OK, that’s a paraphrase, but his actual words aren’t all that much different. No joke, the president who has presided over a downgraded credit rating, three years without a budget, an exploding deficit, an entitlement system desperately in need of reform, and an unemployment rate still over 8 percent has painted himself as a model for others to follow.

Quite remarkably, the president bragged that he has worked to “bring down our deficits and debt over the longer term” while staying “focused on growing the economy and creating jobs in the immediate term.” Though he acknowledges that “Of course, we still have a lot of work to do,” he says that now there’s “room to take a balanced approach to reducing our deficit and debt, while preserving our investments in the drivers of growth and job creation over the long term — education, innovation, and infrastructure for the 21st century.”

In other words, because of his supposed successes, America can afford to spend even more money on stimulus.

It’s hard to say whether the president’s intended audience was the leaders of the G8 or the American electorate, but regardless of who it was, there’s not much for Obama to brag about. [link]
Is he stupid? Or just delusional.

You decide. November 6.

So Obama's Cherokee Too?

Who would have thought, not that long ago, that the 2012 election would be so much about race?

In truth, I think we all did.

You think Obama's a lousy President?  You're a racist.

As the campaign was certainly to devolve.

But really.  What's with all these Democrats claiming Cherokee heritage all of a sudden?

The latest:
Like Warren, Obama Claims Cherokee Heritage - But Offers No Proof
. By Michael Patrick Leahy, Big Government

President Barack Obama and Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren have more in common than just their liberal political ideology, Harvard Law pedigree, and Democratic Party affiliation. Both claim Cherokee ancestry, and neither can prove it.

Ms. Warren's claims are current and well known, but President Obama's claims were made back in 1995, when his memoir, Dreams from My Father, was published. On pages 12 and 13 of the 2004 paperback edition, the President unequivocally asserts his Cherokee ancestry ... [link]
I don't know. Does Obama look like an Indian? I suppose as much as his partner Elizabeth Warren does.

But really?

At the risk of being labeled a racist - for the 84,343rd time - What is with these people?
