Harry Reid, democrat senate leader, blocks vote on “jobs bill”

That’s right, Reid won’t allow the senate to vote on this bogus jobs bill because he does not have enough democrat votes to pass it – while Obama continues to blame republicans.  What a small, small man he is.

Talk about poor timing.

Moments after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, blocked a Republican motion in the Senate to vote on President Obama’s jobs bill, the president’s re-election campaign sent out an e-mail blasting House Republicans for not voting on the proposal.

So here he is in Texas yesterday at some community college continuing to lie and mislead..  The most unpresidential president in history.   What an embarrassment.  Notice the blank looks on the props behind him.

Liberal media is trying to project onto Cantor Obama’s childish behavior

Eric Cantor is really the adult in the room.  But the media is once again engaging in projection and protecting their hero Obama. 

Just made a quick surf to MSNBC and it is very amusing to watch.  The Child in Chief has been acting like, well, a child actually storming out of the meeting yesterday and having some words with Eric Cantor.  Obama is throwing little tantrums because HE is not getting his way.

Well, wouldn’t you know it, the Obama network has chosen Eric Cantor to project all of Obama’s actions onto.  They show the fine Harry Reid saying something about Eric being childish and quoting somebody as saying, “It’s all about Eric.”  This is exactly Obama to the “t”.  Then somebody else says that Eric is upset because he is not getting his way.  Again, they are going all out to project onto Eric Obama’s childish and unpresidential behavior.  They are in their usual frenzy.  You can always tell when the memo has gone out and all have gotten together on what particular lie they will be pushing for the day.  Today it’s “childish.”

You’re looking silly, media.  Harry Reid, you are silly and that goes without saying.

And from what I am hearing, Mitch McConnell, et al, are basing everything they do on their fear of the media and how they will be protrayed there.  Well, we know it won’t be good no matter what they do so why do they care?  Now the reports will glow if the republicans are licking the dem’s boots and doing exactly what they want them to do.   So when I hear Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi praise Boehner and McConnell and go batty over Cantor that tells me that Cantor is the guy who is fighting the good fight. 

My question is, and I would love for somebody to answer this: 

Since the debt has gone up from 8 trillion dollars when Obama took office to 14 trillion right now, if he gets the 2 trillion he is requesting, how long will it be before there has to be another one, six months, a year? 

So just how high do they plan to go with this?  What IS the limit.  $14 trillion is not the limit.  $16 trillion won’t be the limit.  Exactly how high is this ceiling?

UPDATE:  I log on this morning and the first thing I see is Yahoo pushing this theme.  So here you have a video of Harry Reid in all his glory on the floor of the Senate.  I would be ashamed.  No integrity whatsoever. 

It’s right out of Comedy Central, Dems.  You look foolish.

This video has disappeared “no longer available” so here’s Reid on the Senate floor talking about Cantor being “childish.”  This is just gross projection.

Obama’s Big Reveal to reduce the deficit (Don’t laugh)

President Obama finally gets up from his nap.

Obama reveals his plan to reduce the deficit, in part by scaling back programs for seniors and the poor. Across the dial on Sunday, messengers from both parties framed the series of spending fights as debates over cuts — a thematic victory for House Republicans swept to power by a populist mandate for smaller, more austere government.

“We’ve had to bring this president kicking and screaming to the table to cut spending,” said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., on “Fox News Sunday.”

Presidential adviser David Plouffe said Obama has long been committed to finding ways for the nation to spend within its means.   [Don’t laugh too hard.] He confirmed that the president would unveil more specifics for deficit reduction with a speech Wednesday that would reveal plans to reduce the government’s chief health programs for seniors and the poor.

“You’re going to have to look at Medicare and Medicaid and see what kind of savings you can get,” Obama adviser David Plouffe said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Obama to the rescue.  He is always, always dragging up the rear.  This man could not run a grocery store.  He’d wait until the store was empty before he’d put in an order.  I noticed how he did wake up long enough to jump in a photo  trying to take credit for averting a government shutdown.  I find it hard to imagine his staunchest supporters would really want to impose him on the country for another four years.

So his plan is to cut funding for the elderly and the poor.  Now, really.  And don’t forget the military.   I’m sure that slipped his mind for a minute.  But then I think it’s funny that Plouffe and company has been busy little bees drawing up something, anything to try and make their guy look like a leader, then bring up something sure to go nowhere.    Their contempt for the American people is profound.

This last week should put the radical democrats in congress on record as being totally irrational in the face of a real financial crisis in this country.  Now, on to the debt ceiling.

Here are Obama’s thoughts on the debt limit in 2006, when he voted against increasing the ceiling:

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

He actually sounded like he had a little sense in 2006.  But he ain’t partisan.  I actually wanted to believe him when he said he would bring the country together.

Barney Frank challenger, Sean Bielat, gains momentum, funds

With the respected, nonpartisan Cook Political Report shifting Barney Frank’s Massachusetts district from “solid” Democratic to “likely” Democratic and what appears to be the increasing momentum of his Republican challenger Sean Bielat, the National Republican Congressional Committee may be putting its money into the race. Bielat had lunch with Whip Eric Cantor Tuesday, and a spokeswoman for Bielat said “we expect some resources” from the NRCC “going into the home stretch.”

NRCC spokesman Tory Mazzola said the NRCC is “keeping an eye” on the race “because over the last few weeks it’s become very competitive.”

Privately, a Republican operative said Cantor’s lunch with Bielat was illustrative. “That would certainly be an indication this is winnable,” the source said. A major Tea Party group has also vowed to pour money into the race.

If ever there was a man who deserved to be defeated,  it is the arrogant, rude, corrupt Barney Frank.

REWIND: Obama’s first message to Republicans was, “I won”

This is just a clip of President Obama as he addressed the Republican retreat in Baltimore yesterday, or I should say as he lectured the Republicans.  As usual, this is being protrayed by the MSM with clips here and there in order to prove whatever point they are trying to make.  For anyone who did not see it live, please go to CSPAN and listen to the whole thing in order to judge it all in context.  The facial expressions are worth the price of admission.

“We have to think about tone.”

You mean kinda like this?  First message to Republicans  (Eric Cantor) was “I won.”  Emplied:  Get used to it.

Watch this video to recapture the tone that was set by the administration from the word go.

“President Obama listened to Republican gripes about his stimulus package during a meeting with congressional leaders Friday morning – but he also left no doubt about who’s in charge of these negotiations. “I won,” Obama noted matter-of-factly, according to sources familiar with the conversation.”

Prez Zings GOP Foe in a Stimulating Talk/New York Post, January 26, 2009.

So let’s tell the truth here.  It was the president’s responsibility to set the “tone,” to provide leadership. And he did.  It was not one of bi-partanship.  The democrats have the Senate and the House and the Presidency, and the tone was to get out of our way, “I won.”” Quote from Politico, January 23, 2009.

And now that the tide is turning, they want to mislead and rewrite the facts.  And that’s what the little summit was all about, to try to shift blame to the Republicans for this horrible failure of 2009, delivered by a complete democrat controlled Washington, D. C.

Not going to work.  We have a good memories.

And probably also to divert attention away from the backtrack on the Manhattan terrorist trials, which is good news, but also highlights the fact, once again, that the first reactions and instincts of the administration are flawed.

Is he giving the GOP the middle finger? Watch. Probably. He did the same to Hillary and McCain during the campaign. That’s the kind of guy he is, real classy.

If you can take it, here’s how MSNBC is playing this.

MSNBC Obama Love Fest.

Note:  Take a look at the Neilsen ratings and these three, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, and Chris Matthews are at the dead bottom of the ratings.   But they are in love and as has long been known, “love is blind.” That’s how it is, one will go to the ends of the earth to defend the object of true love.  Too bad nobody is watching.

Arlen Specter’s parting words for the republicans (Funny)

Well, as far as I’m concerned, Arlen Specter belongs in the democrat party and I’m glad he finally recognized it. He was a RINO anyway. I wasn’t even going to write about it, but this is just too funny to pass up.

Andy Borowitz on Huffington Post is reporting that Specter had some choice words for his former republican colleagues today.

As in:

“Now I can say it: what a bunch of f*cking a..holes!”

And:

“This is something I’ve wanted to say for years: is there a bigger d.ck on this planet than Mitch McConnell?” he said. “I know he thinks he’s doing his job, but please, what a f*cking t.rd.”

And as to Minority whip Eric Cantor:

“Eric f*cking Cantor? Please. That douche can kiss my g.dd.mn stimulus package.”

Well!  🙂

This is a joke, right?  I don’t know.
