Ohio coal miners support Romney

This will bring tears to your eyes and joy to your heart.  This is was last Tuesday – just now seeping out.  This would make a nice news story, wouldn’t it?  I would have been interested in hearing about it, but it’s not something the corrupt obama media would want anyone to know about.

This is from Gateway Pundit.

Ohio miners turn on Obama. Hundreds of coal miners and their families stand in line while waiting to attend a rally at the Century Mine near Beallsville, Ohio, for Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2012. (I’m 41)

Seniors like Paul Ryan, what’s not to like? “Good luck and kick ass”

Seniors like and trust Paul Ryan.  He’s as lovable as your son or grandson.

It’s the democrats who are ending medicare as we know it.  Whatever obama says, just turn it around to the exact opposite and you will get the true picture.  In other words, what they accuse others of is what they themselves are doing.  Rule of Thumb.

In Warren, Ohio yesterday:

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan stopped by the Original Hot Dog Shoppe here this afternoon to chat with voters and grab some lunch. The Wisconsin congressman and fitness nut chowed down on two hot dogs with onion, extra kraut and mustard, a side of small chili-cheese fries, and an unsweetened iced tea. The total bill came to $8.78, including a chili-cheese dog Ryan purchased for a reporter celebrating his twenty-seventh birthday.

 “Hey Paul!” yelled an elderly woman while Ryan was placing his order with the cashier. “Good luck! Kick ass!”

The well-wisher, Erma from Howland, Ohio, told me later that she’s not worried that Ryan and Romney would end Medicare. “I don’t believe it,” she said. “Because Obama has a bigger plan to rob Medicare of $617 billion.”

“We better worry about Obamacare before we worry about Ryan,” added Erma, a self-described conservative. Erma wasn’t the only conservative senior citizen at the Original Hot Dog Shoppe to demonstrate that the party faithful have absorbed the Medicare message being pushed by the Romney-Ryan campaign this week.

“Oh, don’t believe none of that stuff,” Eleanor Costantino, a senior citizen from Warren, told me when I asked her if she was worried about Romney-Ryan taking away Medicare. “It’s all nothing but a bunch of lies!”

“He’s going to save Medicare,” chimed in Eleanor’s friend Karen Combs from Cortland, Ohio. “There’s $700 billion under Obamacare coming out of Medicare, and seniors should be more frightened over that.”

From under a bridge somewhere near Cincinnati: “I, I, I, I’m a warrior for the middle class”

Is he on something…..

…..or is his speech-writer trying to make him look like a fool?

Transcript of the speech:  http://fatlip.leoweekly.com/2011/09/22/full-text-of-obamas-speech-in-nkycincinnati/

There is one thing I am really glad about and that is he has”put politics aside”, as he requested in the speech before the joint session of congress.

It’s always all about the children, yes, all about the children and the middle class.  He sounds a whole lot like what he promised to do when pushing the 2009 stiumlus bill.  He was going to repair roads and bridges, repair schools, and provide all those shovel ready jobs.  (tee hee funny funny not quite as shovel ready as he thought.)

And there’s still 35,000, that’s 35,000 schools that need repair?  Here he is in 2009:

” To give our children the chance to live out their dreams in a world that’s never been more competitive, we will equip tens of thousands of schools, community colleges, and public universities with 21st century classrooms, labs, and libraries. We’ll provide new computers, new technology, and new training for teachers so that students in Chicago and Boston can compete with kids in Beijing for the high-tech, high-wage jobs of the future.”

Transcript of 2009 $800 billion stimulus speech:  http://www.zimbio.com/2008+Bush+Tax+Rebate/articles/244/Obama+Economic+Stimulus+Package+Proposal+Speech

I thought local property and other taxes paid for the schools anyway.  What happened to all that tax money collected on gasoline sales that was to pay for roads and bridges?  But if you could fake manufacturing a few solar panels that nobody wanted, one might could have gotten, no not might could have but did get, a few hundred million dollars of stimulus money.

Here he is.  The smartest man in the world.  But it has been alleged that he made C’s and D’s in college and he has produced no evidence to the contrary.  But still so intelligent and so articulate.

FLOTUS unveils MyPlate icon, Obama downs hot dog(s), chili & fries in Toledo

Obama Foodorama details the unveiling of Michelle Obama’s new food group icon, MyPlate.org.

It just got a little bit easier for kids and their families to follow the Let’s Move! campaign and try to eat like First Lady Michelle Obama. In Washington today, Mrs. Obama unveiled “MyPlate,” the federal government’s new primary food group icon, designed to be an easy-to-understand visual cue to encourage people to adopt eating habits consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

I can see Mark Levin’s head exploding from here.

It comes with a little booklet, (very high end color printing job and probably very expensive) that devotes a page to dire warnings not to change this MyPlate icon in any way.

Listen up, children, this is important.  Below is the page dedicated to the improper use of MyPlate.  Watch for the Obama MyPlate Food Police.

Oh, here we go:  “The icon cost about $2 million and months of work to design and to create, according to USDA sources.”  That’s enough to pay a salary of $40,000 per year for 50 years.  Outrageous.  Cut. their. funds.  Wasting money like this is outrageous any time, especially with so many out of work.

And the MyPlate is so, so much better than the MyPryamid currently in use.  Right!

There is major worry that:

“the food industry in general will use the icon to market foods, but USDA has issued a ten-page “MyPlate Style Guide and Conditions of Use” booklet to attempt to control its messaging tool. The booklet warns ALL users against altering the image in any way–no changes in typeface, color, or position of the food groups on the plate are allowed, for instance. and use of the icon doesn’t imply that USDA endorses the food, according to the booklet.”

“No matter what USDA does, the food industry will figure out a way to use it [MyPlate] to sell more food.  A bottom-line focus always trumps public health, alas.”

Horror of horrors.  Imagine the food industry trying to sell more food.  Can we get these people out of the White House?

I see where POTUS escaped to Toledo yesterday and grabbed a hot dog with mustard, onion, chili sauce and cheese, with a bowl of chili and fries on the side.

Quote of the Day:

“By the way, as an afficionado of hot dogs, you shouldn’t put ketchup on your hot dog… I’m trying to teach my girls.”

President Obama, as he stopped for a bite at Rudy’s Hot Dogs in Toledo, Ohio.

Some say it was TWO chili dogs…..

Obama having fun in Cleveland while the world burns

Where was our alleged president yesterday?  The country is in turmoil, four Americans shot and killed by Somali pirates, and Kadhafi threatening to blow up gas lines in Libya.  Nothing much happening here that would require a president of the United States to address or focus on or provide some leadership on.  Nah.  Nothing at all.

He and “members of the Cabinet” are “having fun” at some break out session in Cleveland, Ohio.  They had so much fun they are going to do it again.

Obama:  “Now, for those who just joined us, we’ve spent the day in breakout sessions

We had a terrific discussion.  The groups that I participated in were remarkable and had great ideas.  I know the members of the Cabinet had fun, which is why we’re going to do it again.  And over the next several months, what we’re going to be doing is teaming up with mayors and governors and small business owners to host a series of these jobs forums across the country.”

The “Cabinet” mentioned above consists of:

The unusual show of political muscle includes Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, Energy Secretary Steven Chu and Austan Goolsbee, chairman of the council of economic advisers, who is not a Cabinet member but has equal rank. Karen Mills, head of the U.S. Small Business Administration and Gene Sperling, Director of the National Economic Council, will also participate.

This is funny.  The white house announced the forum on Monday as follows:

Obama opens the Cleveland forum, titled “Winning the Future,” [WTF Forum] and then will send the invitation-only participants into small groups. Mills will lead a discussion on entrepreneurship; Geithner will lead a meeting on how small businesses can access capital; Solis will convene a discussion on workforce development; Locke will oversee a meeting on how to improve exports for small businesses; and Chu will lead a discussion on clean energy.

And, of course, they had to fire up Air Force One for the trip at a cost of at least $68,000 an hour.

Picture, if you can, the president of the United States AND key members of his cabinet in break out sessions in Cleveland, Ohio,  while, Not Rome, but the world burns.

What. A. Nightmare.

This is what we get for electing a community organizer for president.

Here’s the whole speech, but it’s not worth the trouble to read.

Then and Now: Decline of Barack Obama

The First one is a Joke – these Next two are for Real

Yesterday, the president and the vice-president appeared together in Cleveland.

CLEVELAND — The arena where President Obama and Vice President Biden are making their final appeal to Democrats to get out and vote in Tuesday’s midterm elections was far from capacity Sunday afternoon.

The crowd estimate stands at 8,000 in the arena that seats just over 13,000 and a couple thousand empty seats are visible above the stage where Obama and Biden rallied supporters.

Obama also had to stop to lecture some of his supporters who were heckling and interrupting his speech as he was in Connecticut for “Dick” (not really a Viet Nam Vet) Blumenthal yesterday.

I heard yesterday the protesters were removed from the arena, but I can’t find anything further about that, so maybe not.

Two props with hard hats

The prez in Ohio again, wasting fuel, babbling on.

Two guys in hard hats staged in the background.  Pathetic.

The rest of the crew was laid off for the day for his appearance.  They’re not real happy.  What’s the matter?  Are they afraid somebody might blurt out the truth?
