Obama Flunky David Axelrod Cackles No Compromise on Jobs Bill

Welcome to compromise, Obama campaign style:

 Obama’s top political adviser David Axelrod said Tuesday that the administration was unwilling to break up the president’s $447 billion jobs plan if Republicans were only receptive to passing certain elements.  “We’re not in a negotiation to break up the package. It’s not an a la carte menu. It’s a strategy to get this country moving,” Axelrod said Tuesday on ABC’s Good Morning America.  “The president has a package; the package works together. We need to do many things to get this economy moving,” Axelrod said.

Hey David, no negotiation? President Obama does not pass legislation. Passing legislation is reserved to Congress. Congress has two chambers, the House and Senate. The Senate is divided, with the Democrats having a slight majority, but as a chamber it gives plenty of power to the minority to not be steamrolled as a matter of check and balance upon the majority. The House is overwhelmingly in control of the Republicans, and may after today be even a little more so given the special elections. The American people voted for this situation in terms of balance of power. So, if you do not want to compromise, then you will get nothing and deservedly so. Work on the areas you have common ground. If you are unwilling and unable to do so, there is no reason for the Republicans to give you an inch. They were voted in, in record numbers last fall to hamper your full tilt to the radical left. Most of your rhetoric was just bits of red meat thrown out to incite your base. You propose funneling even more money to your crony Union special interest groups after the first massive funnel of taxpayers’ money to them failed to get the economy moving (which we entirely predictable). But why should anyone in the country outside of those you seek to buy votes from back your plan? We see through your transparent corruption as pathetic attempts to purchase favor just enough to win reelection. And we see that you are willing to spend almost unlimited amounts of other people’s money to make sure you keep an iron fist on power. Sorry, most of us aren’t buying it any more. We don’t want your leftist collectivist authoritarianism.

Intelligent people know the stimulus is a disaster. Son of stimulus will fail as did the mother of all stimuli which promised to hold unemployment at 8%. Unemployment is now 9.1% and 2.3 million jobs have been lost since the Obama Democrat trillion dollar stimulus plan was enacted. In fact 3 mil jobs have been lost since Obama took over the White House. The democrats have brought misery, despair and hopelessness to Americans.

Where Obama Blew Chunks on His Second Term Chances

How Obama lost his presidency in August 2009

Andrew Breitbart

 When the history of Barack Obama’s one-term presidency is written, August 2009 will be remembered as the turning point.

It was then that thousands of ordinary citizens began to rise up against a health care bill being forced through Congress. And it was then that the Obama administration declared war, through its union proxies, against the American people.

Obama had been elected to fix the economy. But Democrats had planned for years to use the first year of the next “progressive” presidency to push universal health care, according to the plan written in federal prison by convicted fraudster and Democrat strategist Robert Creamer. That plan declared: “To win we must not just generate understanding, but emotion — fear, revulsion, anger, disgust.”

The Democrats followed that plan to the letter and vowed to pass ObamaCare — then known as H.R. 3200 — before that summer’s end. But when they dispatched members of Congress to town hall meetings to sell Obama’s policy, they met unprecedented outrage — not just protests, but the simple, searing questions of their constituents: “Why should we pay for abortions?” “Does the legislation cover illegal immigrants?” “Have you even read the bill?”

Some of the opposition was organized by Tea Party groups that had sprung up in the wake of President Obama’s massive stimulus in February 2009. But much of it was spontaneous. Then-House Speaker (now Minority Leader) Nancy Pelosi called the protests “un-American” and falsely accused Tea Party members of carrying swastikas. That made the public even more indignant.

By early August, President Obama realized he was losing public support. So he turned to the “community organizing” techniques of his Chicago days. On Aug. 6, 2009, Jim Messina, then-White House Deputy Chief of Staff (now managing Obama’s re-election campaign), told Democrats to “punch back twice as hard.” The same day, John Sweeney, then-president of the AFL-CIO, issued a memo telling union members to show up at the town hall “battleground.”

That very evening, union thugs at a town hall meeting in Tampa assaulted a man who opposed ObamaCare, ripping the shirt off his back. And that same night in St. Louis, Ken Gladney allegedly was beaten up outside a town hall meeting as he tried to distribute Gadsden (“Don’t Tread On Me”) flags by union thugs yelling, “What kind of nigger are you?” The next day, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius thanked SEIU members for their efforts at town halls.

It didn’t stop there. On Aug. 31, left-wing organizers outside a town hall meeting in suburban Chicago instructed activists to block residents’ questions. The Gladney attack was a small part of a much larger campaign of intimidation, directed from the White House. The acquittals in the Gladney case cannot erase what happened, even though the high-flying lawyers brought in by the SEIU outmatched the rookie prosecutor. But the verdict has been seized upon by the left-wing propagandists at Media Matters, which received a hefty donation from the SEIU after the Gladney attack and which set about trying to destroy Gladney’s credibility.

Local graduate student Adam Shriver has been a willing accomplice in Media Matters’ revisionism. In an Aug. 25 oped column in the Post-Dispatch, he accuses me of ‘smearing” unions — yet in this case and others, Shriver focuses obsessively on shreds that favor his ideological patrons, knowing and caring little about the facts as a whole.

Recently, when professors at the University of Missouri were caught indoctrinating their students in violent tactics in labor disputes, Shriver tried to dismiss the evidence by focusing on edits in a highlight reel created by an independent blogger. He refuses to join calls for the university to release video or transcripts of the course as a whole, thereby assisting the administration’s cover-up. Both private and public unions continue to use those thuggish tactics — most recently in the Verizon strike, where union members staged a mock funeral outside an executive’s home, and even put a little girl in front of a truck to scare replacement workers.

Ken Gladney was an innocent victim, singled out by thugs specifically because they thought he was a black conservative, for whom the Janeane Garolafos of the left reserve special contempt. Those who accuse the Tea Party of being “terrorists,” and who blamed Sarah Palin for the Tucson massacre, have yet to be held accountable for the violence they unleashed in August 2009. They “won” the Gladney case, but they are losing the nation, thanks to the extraordinary courage of ordinary people who will not be silenced.

There are only 2 reasons Obama won in 2008:

1) Obama was a blank slate that the Lame-stream press painted to match the moment
2) McCain was an old fart who didn’t know how to read is own eMail – and boasted of it

This time around everyone knows Dear Leader Obama – the golf swings and vacations.  Obama is a well known failure.

The GOP will run the Anti-Obama – someone who is young, energetic, ruthless, and 180 degrees different than Obama in EVERY way.

Obama is toast…..

 

Also Tack On this Reason Obama will be a one term President:

The Misery Index, popularized by Governor Carter to hound President Ford only to be President Carter​’s undoing, haunts Democrats again. The combined unemployment and inflation rates are at their worst level in twenty-eight years. The stock market has just spent six weeks in the red. The GDP grows at an anemic rate of 1.8 percent. The housing market has been in shambles for five years, and seems to be double dipping. Debt approaches GDP. Flat-lining and nose-diving trend lines make the president’s reelection precarious. Even a browbeaten Bill Daley, the president’s chief of staff, conceded to an incensed National Association of Manufacturers convention, “Sometimes you can’t defend the indefensible.” He said it. 

Obama is going to follow in the steps of Jimmy Carter and Bush 41 and will do the One-Termer Dance. 10 Reasons Why:

Posted in Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter, Lamestream Media, One and Done, Unions with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 20, 2011 by Ferrell Gummitt

From Human Events:

Less than two months ago, buzzing from the president’s gutsy call to eliminate Osama bin Laden, and liberal pontificators had practically sworn in Barack Obama for his second term. “For the GOP the sands are rushing through the hourglass,” Roger Simon wrote in a column whose title had wondered whether the president was “invincible.” He claimed that with Geronimo KIA, “the Republican field has been fried like an egg.” In reality, the president’s short-term popularity boost had fried the long-term judgment of his supporters.

The reasons to believe Obama a one-term president are many and well-grounded.

10. The Declaration of Independents

Candidate Obama attracted independents. President Obama repulses them. The president entered office with the approval of 62 percent of independents. The latest Gallup poll shows support of just 42 percent of independents. Similarly, the political moderate’s keys to his election have deserted the president as immoderate policies have emerged. There simply aren’t enough liberals for Democrats to lose moderates and win elections. No Democratic candidate over the last half century has won the presidency without winning moderates. 

9. A Redder America

Barack Obama faces a redder electoral map than he did in 2008. The 2012 presidential election is more than a year away, but the Electoral College has already shifted twelve votes away from blue states and toward red states. Most of the states gaining electoral votes in the census reapportionment voted for McCain. Almost all of the states losing electoral votes voted for Obama. Even the states that Obama carried that added electoral votes—Nevada and Florida, to name two—don’t seem locks to go for the president in 2012. The loss of electoral votes isn’t fatal to Obama. It is a handicap.

8. The Issues Have Changed

Gallup’s “Monthly Most Important Problem” survey is a problem for the president. What is troubling the American people? Over the first five months of 2011, Americans point to the economy (29%), unemployment (26%), the deficit (13%), and government (11%). The issues most salient to voters uniformly work to the incumbent’s disadvantage. When Iraq, health care, and Republican mishandling of the economy mattered to voters, Obama could go on the offensive. It’s difficult to see how he scores points in 2012 on the issues that resonate with voters. He will be on his heels.

7. The Blank Canvass Isn’t Anymore

Other than William Jennings Bryan and Wendell Willkie, who is the major party nominee with a skimpier record than 2008’s Barack Obama? He could vote “present” in the Illinois legislature and run away from U.S. Senate votes while running for higher office. But presidents can’t remain blank slates for long. Unpopular Obama Care, a sedative stimulus, ineptness in the face of the BP oil spill, and defiance of Congress in starting a third Middle Eastern war have all painted a presidential picture that has calcified conservative opposition, alienated moderates, and disillusioned liberal supporters.

6. Demoralized Liberals

Left-wing activist Ralph Nader encourages a primary challenge. Ohio Democrat Dennis Kucinich sues the administration over Libya. Netroots conference goers boo White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer. Rather than rejoice at a universal health-care bill that eluded predecessors or the introduction of open homosexuality in the military, liberals decry Obama for retaining Bush-era tax rates, playing warden over Guantanamo Bay, and launching a new war in Libya. Never can Democrats satiate their cannibalistic base. If you think this is an overstatement, feel free to examine the teeth marks on the political carcasses of Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, and Lyndon Johnson. Leftists may not primary this president or siphon votes through a suicidal third-party bid. But neither will they work or give at the levels they did in 2008.

5. Energized Conservatives

After eight years of big-government Bush, an underwhelming primary field, and a sclerotic general election campaign, conservatives could be given a mulligan for sleepwalking through the last presidential election. Conservatives, just 34 percent of the electorate in 2008’s election, comprised 42 percent of voters in 2010. From tea-parties to raucous town halls, the political dynamic of the country has been altered. It showed in 2010, when Republicans added 63 House seats, seven Senate seats, and six governors. Nothing invigorates a party’s base like an aggressive ideologue of the opposing party occupying the White House. The GOP clearly has the momentum heading into 2012.

4. The Political Ground has shifted Beneath the President’s Feet

a political lifetime has elapsed since Barack Obama’s election. Bailouts and big-government have yielded to tea parties and deficit angst. Gallup’s ideological identification survey registered the highest percentage of liberals in its history the year of Barack Obama’s election. Gallup’s most recent ideological identification survey registered its highest percentage of conservatives since the inaugural 1992 poll. Between the 2008 survey and last year’s, conservatives have gained seven points vis-à-vis liberals. To know liberalism isn’t to love it.

3. Historic Turnouts Aren’t Every-Four-Year Occurrences

Obama surfed to victory in 2008 on the crest of two historic waves. African Americans constituted a larger percentage of the electorate than ever recorded. And young people voted for the Democratic candidate by the greatest margin ever. Two-thirds of 18-to-29 year olds cast ballots for Obama. A staggering 19 out of every 20 African American voters pulled the lever for Obama. The precarious foundation of the Democrat’s election rested on the remarkable turnout, and the amazing one-sidedness, of two constituencies—African Americans and young people—who traditionally stay home on Election Day. That both groups have been hit especially hard by the economic slump makes it hard to envision a repeat of the amazing African American turnout and one-sided youth vote.   

2. A Low Ceiling

Roger Simon wondered if the president was “invincible” in the wake of killing bin Laden. More perceptive observers saw vulnerability. Counter intuitively, the assassination of America’s most reviled enemy revealed Barack Obama’s political weaknesses, not his strengths. The president’s weekly Gallup approval average topped out at 51 percent following the bin Laden operation. The best possible week of Obama’s presidency yielded barely half of the electorate’s support. His enemies should acknowledge the man has a floor of support. His supporters should acknowledge he has a ceiling, too.

1. It’s Still the Economy, Stupid

The Misery Index, popularized by Governor Carter to hound President Ford only to be President Carter’s undoing, haunts Democrats again. The combined unemployment and inflation rates are at their worst level in twenty-eight years. The stock market has just spent six weeks in the red. The GDP grows at an anemic rate of 1.8 percent. The housing market has been in shambles for five years, and seems to be double dipping. Debt approaches GDP. Flat-lining and nose-diving trend lines make the president’s reelection precarious. Even a browbeaten Bill Daley, the president’s chief of staff, conceded to an incensed National Association of Manufacturers convention, “Sometimes you can’t defend the indefensible.” He said it. 

Barack Obama is a formidable campaigner. His presidency is not without accomplishment (see, Osama bin Laden). And occupants of the White House have lost general elections just five times in the last hundred years. But he has governed ineffectively and stubbornly against the wishes of the American people. He could win reelection. But the preponderance of indicators suggests his defeat. This should make conservatives hopeful for change. 

Brass Tacks.  There are only 2 reasons Obama won in 2008:

1) Obama was a blank slate that the Lame-stream press painted to match the moment
2) McCain was an old fart who didn’t know how to read his own Email – and boasted of it

This time around everyone knows Dear Leader Obama – the golf swings and vacations.  Obama is a well known failure.

The GOP will run the Anti-Obama – someone who is young, energetic, ruthless, and 180 degrees different than Obama in EVERY way.

Obama is toast…..

Plus chew on these facts:

Almost all of the states have very serious debt problems.

Most of the debt problems are caused by the out of control state pensions. The Democrats strongly support the unions. Obama bailed out the pension plans of GM and Chrysler and stiffed the car company’s creditors. I believe that around 16 billion will not be paid back. Unfortunately, the unions come across as loud, obnoxious thugs that have no problem destroying public property such as the state capital in Wisconsin.

The President promised to get out of Afghanistan and Iraq. 

Not only are we still in Afghanistan and Iraq, but Obama has now started a
third war in Libya. He did not bother to inform Congress that he was going to
war. The war in Libya is not going well. The President is denying that a war
exist since NATO is conducting the war.

During Obama’s term the national debt has increased by trillions.

The bond rating agency, Standard and Poor, has changed the outlook
for the rating on US Bonds from stable to negative. During the CR negotiations,
the Democrats fought hard to not reduce spending.

The unemployment rate is still around 9 percent.

Obama has done little to help the unemployment situation. His most recent example is to
loan billions to a foreign country for off shore drilling, however, he has no
problem in shutting down drilling in the Gulf with the result of tens of
thousands people out of work. During the run up to the next election, it is
predicted that the unemployment rate will stay above 8 percent.

In the past year the cost of Regular Gas has increased from $2.89 to $3.82. The cost of the following items has also increased over the last year: Tomato 13.9%, Wheat 51.73%, Sugar 54.17%, Coffee 123.16%, Corn 103.85%, Butter 31.50%, Coca 9.24%,
Soybeans 35.17%, Cotton 144.37% and Milk 10%. We are going into stagflation;
high unemployment and high inflation. 

  
Finally, instead of drilling for oil, Obama is banking on electric cars to solve the high cost of gasoline problems.  Carter like inflation, high interest rates, and stagnant wage growth are just around the corner.

Weinergate Coverage

Posted in Dimmocrats, Insanity is a Liberal Disorder with tags , , , , , , , on June 2, 2011 by Ferrell Gummitt

Sorry, I was going to a post on Rep Michael Weiner but there is excellent coverage at Supportyourlocalgunfighter.com and Ace of Spades.

So, check out the links above.

Prediction though:

Wiener and his dong will come out of the closet and announce that he is a “Gay American”.

The picture was sent by his lover via Twitter by accident.

Wiener will then be martyred by the Gay Community.

In turn this would be a winning scenario for the Democrats by saying that the homophobes of Right Wing brought this shame on him.

They will then be able to gather all of the GLBT votes and maybe some Log Cabin Republican votes as well.

In a bit of Political Irony though, Christopher Lee (R-NY) resigned in February after he mailed a shirtless photograph of himself to a woman  on Craigslist.

Lee manned up and tendered his resignation immediately, Weiner doesn’t seem to be that type of man.

Typical Dem.
