It’s here! Obama’s plan has FINALLY arrived.

24 10 2012

He was waving around a bright blue brochure on the campaign trail today, this day, 14 days to go until Election day, days into early voting for some states. Obama’s Blueprint for America’s Future brochure, fresh with wet ink, has finally been unveiled.

It’s a 20 page plan about 20 months too late.

Nice try, but I think the Romney campaign has really made inroads into the argument that Obama does not have a plan for a second term. Proof of that was in the fact that Obama himself was waving the brochure around like a school kid at show and tell. An incumbant President 14 days before an election really, really wouldn’t be waving around their plan now had they had one all along.

I’m happy that Obama has found his plan. It will give him something to read when he is retired on January 21, 2013.

Binders of Bullshit

18 10 2012

Really?

The liberals have grabbed onto the meme “binders of women” like they found honey dripping off trees.

Binders of women? No, actually this is the petition Notre Dame students signed to keep Obama from speaking at their Commencement. I couldn’t resist using the image!

The battle cry against Romney stems from his comment in the debate Tuesday when he was describing the binders of women his team brought him at his request as he was filling his cabinet as Governor of Massachussetts.

So instead of applauding the Governor for recognizing that applicants were not diverse enough (too many men) and instead of recognizing his extra effort to speak to women’s groups to seek out more women applicants, they instead seize on his comment as if it was some type of slander against estrogen bearing individuals.

Obama and Biden have refered to the binders of women on the campaign trail. It really has gotten that bad.

By making fun of the term, they are actually highlighting the good that Romney did. How refreshing the Romney identified that women were not represented in his applicant pool. How wonderful that he took action to get more to apply. What is wrong with this story? That he didn’t put the word “resumes” behind “binders of women”

If we are going to get into parsing words, let’s talk about the President’s tip toe use of the word terror in that Rose Garden speech on Sept 12. The mispeaking of THAT is far more pressing than the fact that Romney didn’t say the word “resumes” .

This is a binders of bullshit story.  And it will backfire.





Words of the second presidential debate

17 10 2012

What a contentious debate! Reviews are mixed, and not suprisingly most in Obama’s favor, but I think Romney did a very good job looking Presidential, answering each question (when Obama skipped two), and catching Obama in several lies.

Here are the word clouds from last night.

Romney: People Get Going – were the three most used words

Obama: Governor Make Going – were Obama’s

Again, he talks about his opponent more than his plan.

The whopper lie of the night was:

Obama: The day after the attack, governor, I stood in the Rose Garden and I told the American people in the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened. That this was an act of terror and I also said that we’re going to hunt down those who committed this crime.

But what he said on Sept 12 in the Rose Garden was:

“No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation

He did not say the attack the night before was an act of terrorism.

What is important here is that if there is an attack of terrorism – we need to know. We don’t need a President who thinks about it for weeks on end, takes his time and studies the matter and it’s political implications. We now know the intelligence was there and the attack was observed in real time.

It was a stunning mis-use of words, and a flat out lie for Obama to say he called it terrorism within 24 hours.





Yeah, someone was killed – but buy a sweatshirt!!

16 09 2012

Winter is coming and these sweatshirts are perfect for Fall!

That is the message Obama’s staff tweeted from his official Twitter account on Friday, as the coffins were being unloaded in Andrews Air Force Base of those killed in the Libyan consulate attack.

A formal ceremony followed this somber moment and was broadcast on most channels, while Obama tried to look Presidential and Hillary tried to look “next in line”. Meanwhile, Axelrod was tweeting campaign messages.

So what would happen had Romney’s staff tweeted about buying sweatshirts during such a moment?





Too busy to lead

12 09 2012

On September 11 President  Obama declined a request to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later this month.The White House statement  rejecting the request said that at this time Obama’s schedule does not allow for a meeting.

So, what’s on his schedule?

On September 11 a pre-recorded interview of him with “Pimp With a Limp” hit the radio; David Letterman announced Obama will be on his show next week; Beyonce and JayZ announced they will host a fundraiser for Obama next week.

But he’s too busy to sit down with Israel’s Prime Minister.

Something else missing? His attendance at his daily national security briefings. He has not attended one in the past 5 days, mind you, these are the 5 days leading up to the anniversary of a terrorist attack.

And what happened on September 11, 2012? We were attacked.





The Faux War On Women

3 09 2012

The party that brought us ELECTED officials like Anthony Weiner, John Edwards, Eliot Spitzer and Bill Clinton is about to begin a convention where they lecture us on how horrible Republicans are to women.

The candidate that brought us a faceless, cartoon-character woman whose life is dependent on government programs for her and her out-of-wedlock son, using this an an example of an ideal situation, will be nominated to be the head of this party.

I think there is a war on women all right; it’s a war to educate liberals that they have no room to lecture, mock, insult or degrade women. The war is among themselves.





On Sale: Dinner with Barack

5 07 2011

Epic fail: a fundraiser announced on June 16 promised donors-to-be that for a $5 donation, you could be entered into a drawing for dinner with Barack. Clever way to get more email addresses…but evidently…it didn’t work. As of July 5 – the night before the “deadline” to give – the price was cut to $3 for the chance dinner. AND Joe was added to the meal ticket.

They shouldn’t have lowered the price. They should have removed Barack from the chance meal.
