If Not Now, When?

Morgan Griffith takes Obama's words and gives them meaning:

"All of the above."  Let's make Mr. Environmentalist eat those words. November 6.

Why God Gave New Yorkers Two Hands

So citizens there can ignore Mayor Bloomberg's silly ban on large drinking cups.

Memo to Nanny Bloomberg:

Got any other great ideas?

Only Himself To Blame

George Bush isn't Obama's only (worn out) scapegoat for our president's failings.  That darned Republican-led House of Representatives gets its share of hand grenades too.  If only it hadn't blocked all of our dear leader's initiatives, our economy would be in high cotton by now.

But really?

The Wall Street Journal provides a little ... ahem:
On Friday the White House blamed the third slowdown of its four-year term on Republicans for blocking the President's policies, but what policies are they talking about? In his first two years in office, Democrats gave Mr. Obama everything he wanted, save for cap and trade and union card-check, which would have done even more harm to job creation. They passed stimulus, ObamaCare, multiple housing bailouts, Dodd-Frank and more.

Even after Republicans took the House, they gave Mr. Obama the payroll tax holiday he demanded first for 2011 and again for 2012. Far from some new fiscal "austerity," overall federal spending hasn't declined. Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve has delivered monetary stimulus after stimulus—QE I, QE II, Operation Twist, and 42 months of near-zero interest rates with the promise of 30 months more.

Mr. Obama has had the freest run of policy of any President since LBJ. So maybe the problem is the policies.
Maybe the problem is the policies.

All of which Obama wants to continue.

How does that song go about "The Big Muddy"?

The big fool says to push on ...

Let's say otherwise.

Yeah, Let's Talk About Romney's Past

"Apparently I'm supposed to be more upset with what Mitt Romney does with his own money than I am with what Obama does with mine."
-- A quote making the rounds -- 

This is how a presidential opponent punches back:

"At the NATO Summit, President Obama said his opponent's private equity success vs. the administration's failed industrial policy was what this election was all about. Speaking at the bankrupt Solyndra headquarters, his GOP opponent agreed."

Bain Capital vs. Solyndra and Abound Solar and Beacon Power and SunPower and Ecotality and A123 Solar and Evergreen Solar and Unisolar and Azure Dynamics and Ener1 (and on and on), all of which were companies that failed, and took my hard earned income down with them?

Yeah.  Let's make this election about that.

Food For Thought

Getting a little tired of this headline?

Obama (Again) Blames Bush For Bad Job News

Consider: We're going on four years since Bush left office.  Had he been able to run again, and had Obama decided to go back to doing something he was good at - writing novels - and had Bush been reelected - we'd be right where we are today.  As Obama himself frequently implies.

So why did we need Obama?

Why do we need Obama?

Headline of the Day

Incredible: In Wake of Jobs Disaster, Obama Departs for Six Fundraisers

Setting The Record Straight

This is the way the press would have it:

Obama nostalgic for a GOP opponent like McCain

In truth?  John McCain was never Obama's opponent.  George W. Bush was.

So this time around, he's facing a challenger who can - and will - actually punch back.

Not quite as much fun, is it, Barry?
