I’d like to suggest that the Obama Administration be renamed the OBA Administration or the Obama Back-Assward Administration. When most of us have a problem we try to find and fix using logic. For instance, my car was having some trouble starting so I had the battery and alternator checked. If I were to act like the Obama Back-Assward Administration, I would probably have my key checked. It would be funny except that these folks are “running” the country or should I say “ruining” the country…

It’s not been that long since I selected Representative Paul Ryan as a True American Hero and he has done nothing since then but reinforce my decision. He’s “articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” [I admit that I stole that from Biden] Rather than retreat into the gray hole as many conservatives do, Ryan is putting rubber to the road and in turn pressure on Obama by presenting his budget proposal and pointing out the differences between his plan and Obama’s,
I am not sure whether “Demonomics” is Demon Economics or Democrat Economics. It is probably a distinction without a difference as some of the recent comments by leading Democrats defy logic. I have to wonder how these people not only got as far as they did, but stay in positions of power. Perhaps the biggest example has been how the Democrats have been hawking another extension of Unemployment Compensation payments. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi postulated that,
“It injects demand into the economy. It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”
Now that the celebrations are over since we “took back” the House of Representatives a stark new reality is taking place in Congress. Rather than cede the “Lame Duck” session the progressives (both Republicans and Democrats) have decided to try to run the table and pass all sorts of legislation. Unfortunately extending the “Bush” tax cuts seems to be pretty low on the legislative agenda.
Now that the dust has settled from the November 2 mid-term elections it is interesting how the left/progressives/liberals/Democrats are behaving. The media has grabbed the horn by the bull and proclaimed that the results were not a repudiation of Obama’s policies by the American people, was not about Obamacare (it is interesting that this label has stuck), was not a victory for the Tea Party, or the American electorate is just too stupid except where favored Democrats were re-elected. So why did the Democrats lose so badly? Some of the themes center around voter stupidity, racism, Obama being too centrist (WTF), and my favorite…Fox News. Scott Spiegel listed the “Top 10 excuses” at NewsRealBlog.
News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories and this volume is chock full of stories from an upside down political world…
Brief 1: The Keystone State (Pennsylvania) has recently announced that they are making changes to their appliance rebate program. Pennsylvania budget deficit projects are not good so you would expect that a rebate program might be on the chopping block. Not in Pennsylvania’s upside down world. It was announced that the rebates are actually INCREASING, some by more than 100%. In all fairness this is “stimulus” money (federal tax dollars versus state tax dollars).
Now with over eighteen months in the White House the Obama Regime is having to come to grips with ruling versus running. Even though he still seems to be in campaign mode, Obama has to be coming to the realization that being the President of the United States is not anything like community organizing. He can no longer say anything he wants or make conflicting promises. He is still doing it, but citizens have expectations that are not being met.
This headline from the Associated Press may qualify for the Homer Simpson “DUH” awards; “Report: Health overhaul will increase tab.” The assessment wasn’t by any “right-winged” think tank or pundit. The Health and Human Services Department provided the bad news except that it is too late as the bill is now law. The article listed more bad news regarding long-term care insurance and medicare so read at your own risk. Here are some of my predictions:
In approximately 72 hours President Barack Hussein Obama’s wish will likely come true when socialized medicine-lite is passed. Obama wishes and Pelosi crosses her arms, blinks and one sixth more of the United States economy is under federal government control. Unfortunately this is not a humorous sit-com.
Like most Americans I do not want government involved in every aspect of my life and I am against this health care bill. I can say “like most Americans” because most Americans are against the passage of this bill. Democrats in Congress and Obama don’t care what we don’t want. They obviously know what is best for us. They can spin about how much this is pared down, but we all know that this is the camel’s nose under the tent.
Perhaps the perky, Pulitzer Prize winning Katie Couric had her greatest moment when she seemed to stump Sarah Palin when she inquired about what the former Alaska governor reads. Months later Palin spun it that she was rather perturbed at Couric’s sophomoric [my description] question and not caught off balance. Only she knows for sure.
