Well, did I call this one or what? https://somestuffyoushouldknow.wordpress.com/2011/07/31/debt-ceiling-crisis-over-next/
Though not as highly publicized as previous Obama administration crises, in keeping with the whole Obama theme we were again threatened with government shutdown. If you listened closely, and you had to listen really close as apparently even Obama’s media is tiring of the whole “we’re all gonna die unless you give me your money” thing; you may have even heard a few of the same old disingenuous threats of SSI and military pay being interrupted. What we ended up with was another “kick it down the road” measure. Wow, whowoulddathunk?
For the most part I think the administration and their pets in the press have determined that we have crossed over the point at which manufactured doomsday scenarios cease to be effective means by which to create support amongst the people to hand over more of their money.
We’ve entered the “convince the people things are better than they seem and far better than they would have been” stretch of the campaign. A campaign that promises to be as ugly as any we’ve seen.
With one administration black eye after another popping up almost daily from Solyndra to Fast and Furious to virtually everything that comes out of Biden’s mouth and NOTHING in the way substantive, accomplishments on which to run; Obushdidit will once again rear his ugly head. He’ll act like the intellectual child he is and blame everyone else. Congress, Bush, the wealthy and the racists who value our sovereignty will all be demonized. Everyone but the leader of the free world will be expected to accept their “fair share” of the blame. All the while he’ll promise what he hopes is still an ignorant, racist base that if they only give him four more years and support his raping of the US economy of a few trillion more that THIS TIME he’ll really give the money to them.
Has this hack even commented recently on his promise of a couple of years ago that he’d not seek a second term if things were as they currently are after 3 years?
At any rate, this was a pretty easy call as Obama has become a pretty easy and monotonous read.

The following is an email I received begging me to give even MORE to our current president followed by my response. I know it was a waste of time to reply but even the most minute possibility of a computer glitch or some other event leading to my response being read by a living breathing human being working for the Obama campaign made it worthwhile.
I’ve obviously changed my personal information but everything else in the message was copied straight from Outlook which is the reason for the weird formatting.

Subject: Replace that old sticker
I love seeing 2008 bumper stickers on cars and bicycles when I travel across
the country. But as we start to see Republican gear hit the streets, what
about making sure people know you’re supporting the President in 2012?
You can do that with a 2012 campaign car magnet. Will you donate $10 or more and
we’ll send you one?
Yes, I want one.
No thanks, but I want to check out what else is in the store.
Maybe you’re wondering how putting a magnet on your car will help re-elect
When people see us out in the neighborhood showing support with our clothing,
our dog leashes, our cars, or our water bottles, it starts conversations. You
might get a chance to tell someone why you’re supporting the President, and
maybe even convince someone to sign up to volunteer.
At the very least, you’ll show everyone that you’re on the President’s team
— and you’re proud of it.
Even if a car magnet isn’t for you, the 2012 store just got stocked up with
some great new stuff. Stop by today if you haven’t in a while:
I look forward to seeing you out and about with your new gear.

Are you kidding me?
Has the entire nation not been mandated to make increased “donations”
to Obama since he took office?
What happened to his claim that he would not seek a second term if it were
clear he had failed in the first term? Well? Does someone really think this
one might go into overtime?
No one and I mean NO ONE could make conservatives in droves long for
another Clinton Whitehouse the way Obama has.
BTW, I too am currently taking donations for a worthy cause. I’m
calling my cause the Help Arrogant Poor White Americans “Inadvertently”
Victimized By Obama’s Calculated Siege On The Vile And Despicable Wealthy As
The Same Are For Some Reason No Longer Hiring Fund”. It’s the
HAPWAIVBOCSOTVADWATSAFSRNLHF for short. Every little bit helps. Even a
donation as small and insignificant as one tenth of one percent of the
Solyndra payback would help more than you could imagine.
On a personal note “Ms. Smoot”, the Euro-socialist dream is over in
America. If after all we’ve been through in the past couple of years you
STILL honestly feel that endless federal entitlements and government
intrusion into every aspect of everyday life are good things I would strongly
recommend moving to Greece. Actually, I hear the uh, … weather is currently
poor in Greece. France might be a better bet…for the time being.

America is invited to diversionary roast.
Well that was quick.
As I forecast only a couple of days ago here: https://somestuffyoushouldknow.wordpress.com/2011/06/07/democrats-plan-summer-long-weiner-roast/ , congressional Democrats are now lining up to get their name on the sacrifice Weiner petition. Of course there have been several additional and more reprehensible developments over the past couple of days but it’s interesting that lying to the nation didn’t matter. Embarrassing the party does. Some things are too easy to call.
Fear not weiner lovers, as I stated in my initial report this weiner ride promises to be with us for at least the remainder of the summer. I just heard a Democratic pundit claim that once congressional Democrats realize that “Weiner gate” is taking attention away from addressing economic issues they will suddenly wake up and demand he step down so that they can get back to work.
In a word Mr. Pundit, WRONG.
There will undoubtedly be some sincere Democrats who are truly interested in getting back to serving their constituents. However, just as Weiner will continue to use his seat to avoid confronting his issues, many like Pelosi will seek to use Weiner gate as a diversion away from their failure.

This Doesn't Sound Good
Fox news is reporting that several of Newt Gingrich’s senior campaign aides have quit.
In what’s being reported as major differences of opinion over the course of former Speaker of the House Gingrich’s presidential campaign, campaign manager Rob Johnson, press spokesman Rick Tyler and several other senior strategists and aides from early primary states have walked out on their posts. As this is breaking news little more is known at this point.
One thing is for sure, this doesn’t bode well for Gingrich’s presidential run. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Newt’s campaign is officially over.
It’s unfortunate in that I have always felt that Gingrich has the potential to be a great American president. He simply needs to commit and then interact with the American people. I haven’t seen him attempt to truly engage the American people on the level I know he’s capable of. Honestly, this whole “fashionably indecisive” routine we’re getting from the so-called Republican frontrunners is only creating more uncertainty within a public already plagued with uncertainty.
