Barack, Whining For Dollars

Got an email from my President today. He sounds a little panicky to me.

Ross — {yeah, we’re on a first-name basis}

I will be the first president in modern history to be outspent in his re-election campaign, if things continue as they have so far.

I’m not just talking about the super PACs and anonymous outside groups — I’m talking about the Romney campaign itself. Those outside groups just add even more to the underlying problem.

The Romney campaign raises more than we do, and the math isn’t hard to understand: Through the primaries, we raised almost three-quarters of our money from donors giving less than $1,000, while Mitt Romney’s campaign raised more than three-quarters of its money from individuals giving $1,000 or more.

{I’m afraid you’ll be last to find out why.}

And, again, that’s not including the massive outside spending by super PACs and front groups funneling up to an additional billion dollars into ads trashing me, you, and everything we believe in.

{No, it’s just you Barack. And your idea of the relationship between the government and the people.}

We can be outspent and still win — but we can’t be outspent 10 to 1 and still win.

More than 2.2 million Americans have already chipped in for us, and I’m so grateful for it. As we face this week’s fundraising deadline, can you make a donation of $3 or more today?

Every donation you make today automatically enters you to join Michelle and me for one of the last grassroots dinners of this campaign — today is your last chance to get your name in.

{Speaking of that. What did the ‘winners’ of the dinner party in Manhattan have to say to you about their ideas to fix the economy?}

These dinners represent how we do things differently. My opponent spent this past weekend at a secretive retreat for the biggest donors to both his campaign and the super PACs that support him.

I’ve got other responsibilities I’m attending to.

{Like the illegal immigration catch and release program. Trying to find out who is leaking national defense secrets while attempting to cover up the Fast & Furious investigation by illegally applying your executive privilege.}

Donate today to stand for our kind of politics: {emphasis added}

Thank you,



Enemies Welcome!

That may as well be the sign in Arizona. Today’s Supreme Court ruling upheld Arizona’s right to verify legal status if the person is stopped for any other legal reason. Then they can call ICE to report them, who is then supposed to pick them up, decide their status, and deport if they are illegals. The rest of SB1070 was rejected as being the sole responsibility of the federal government.

True to form is the response from the executive branch over the court’s decision. Hey Arizona, don’t bother reporting any illegals you may find. We’re not interested in enforcing the law that the Supreme Court just said was our responsibility. LOL  Deal with it.

When the state can not protect itself and its sovereignty, the union of sovereign states are sovereign no more. Centralized government control and punishment on display.

And the message this sends to the world? All illegals, terrorists, and enemies we don’t even know we have,  are welcome in the United States. Just use the Arizona border with Mexico and behave yourself in public. Have a nice day.

Isn’t it amazing that, to get what he wants, undocumented democrats, he is restrained by no law, no constitution, and no oath. The Obama administration is the lawless administration.

Today In History

It was four years ago that, as a candidate, Barack Obama broke his first pledge. It was his promise to take public funds for his campaign.

Back then they were called ‘pledges.’ Today, they’re known for what they are. And anyone who trusts a liar with their vote must have something much worse to worry about. According to Obama, it’s Republicans.

Did you notice how long it took for the ‘community organizer’ in him to show?

I’ll sit down with John McCain, and make sure that we have a system that is fair for both sides.

Here’s another gem to remember.

I said early on I will not take PAC money. I will not take money from federally registered lobbyists.

One thing surrounding Barack Obama remains consistent from four years ago. With Barack Obama, there has always been a question of trust.

Falling Gas Prices, Who’s To Blame?

When we see the price of a gallon of gasoline coming down, is there anyone giving credit to those oil speculators? According to the Obama administration, they unfairly control the cost of gasoline at the pump because they unfairly control the cost of crude oil. That’s their story and they’re sticking to it. So how’s that investigation into the speculators going?

Absent the chorus of salutations to the oil speculators (part of that market), one can only assume that Obama deserves the credit, or blame, for the gas prices falling. And in this case, that would be correct.

As usual, it is the market that affects the price of crude. And in this case, and you’ve heard Obama brag about how Americans are conserving by using less gas, this decrease in demand is causing the price to come down. He apparently believes in free-market economics only when it suits him. He is only half right in his analysis. Gas prices are coming down due to the falling demand for gas. But it’s not because Americans have suddenly turned into a bunch of conservationists, as he suggests. It is due to the depressed economy, rising unemployment, and generally less business, or any, activity overall. People, and businesses in general, are hunkered down and/or out of work. That’s why the demand is down.

Depressing the economy is not the way to lower prices at the pump.

Obama Campaign Fundraising Problem

It wasn’t that long ago we were hearing about the ‘billion dollar‘ campaign that Obama was going to have this time around. Now, the Obama campaign is not even looking competitive.

In an attempt to supplement the less than stellar campaign donor performance, the campaign has turned to capitalism via merchandising. With every issue lodged against Obaselling-obama-coverma over his record, a campaign fundraising letter is generated with a desperate tone of having to ‘fight back’ the bogeyman that wants to . . .

  1. send children brought into the country by their illegal alien parents back to Mexico.
  2. The country is not fair to them.
  3. And Republicans want to take away the health care that he wants to give them.
  4. And Republicans want to take away college Pell Grants that he wants to give them, so families can no longer afford a college education for their children.
  5. And Republicans want to take away the Social Security and Medicare of millions of Hispanic seniors citizens who depend on it.

President Obama just tweeted: ¡Obama! Show your support for the President: http://OFA.BO/Zd8XBe

The Obama campaign says . . .

 Over the last four years, President Obama has been focused on restoring basic economic security to Hispanics and all Americans.

I don’t believe even they believe that now.  They are living the reality that more Hispanics are unemployed now than when President Obama began. And all the campaign can say is that he “has been focused” on bla bla bla. They know (don’t they?) that Obama concentrated first on getting Obamacare enacted. Not the economy. In fact, he said that fixing the economy depends on first getting health care ‘under control.’ That was his justification for pushing government controlled health care first, over economic recovery. It’s the hype, the lies, that isn’t flying any more. Hispanics in America hear the same words and see the same poor, and worsening, results.

And to show his compassion for poor, out-of-work Hispanics, he is asking them to chip in $5 for a stinking button. If they had their job, the Obama campaign wouldn’t be looking for money from people who can least afford to give it. Who’s helping who here?



Carter’s Second Term Is Here

That President Obama’s economic philosophy has created a failing economy as bad as the Carter years, the comparison doesn’t stop there.

In foreign relations, it was President Carter who gave Iran over to the radical Islamists. See how well that turned out? The Arab Spring in Egypt, that President Obama participated in and took credit for, has now delivered Egypt over to radical Islamists known as the Muslim Brotherhood.

So it is we have a second Carter term on the international stage. What’s next?

Sam Donaldson, CNN Throw Race Card

Sam Donaldson, renowned reporter for ABC, was interviewed yesterday by a CNN host. The subject was about people who disagree with President Obama over his lawless move to flip the bird to Congress with his ‘no deportation’ edict from the Rose Garden.

True to form, Sam says they disagree with Obama simply because he is black. That they are just a bunch of racists if they disagree with Obama. It’s not, he said, because of Obama’s policies (and extraconstitutional actions). The CNN host ended the segment there, saying how relieved he is to see that Sam and he are in agreement. They’re all just racists if they disagree with the president.

To illustrate the absurdity of the claim, CNN and the Sam Donaldson’s of the world would have you believe of these Americans now:

  1. We would be more than willing to welcome cap-and-trade with open arms, even if we paid a thousand dollars or more extra every year for our energy use, if Barack Obama were only white.
  2. We would be dancing in the streets celebrating the dawning of government control of our health care if only Barack Obama were white.
  3. It would be just dandy if government bureaucrats rationed health care for our parents, as long as the president is white.
  4. We would jump at the chance of the government owning ALL of the auto manufacturing companies .. not just General Motors … if the president just didn’t have dark skin.
  5. We would applaud those ACORN workers giving tax avoidance advice to a pimp and his prostitute if the workers hadn’t been black.
  6. Most Americans – even ones that don’t pay income taxes now – would be more than willing to give 70% of everything they earn to the federal government when asked … so long as they are asked by a white president.
  7. We would have been thrilled, I tell you … THRILLED to have all of those Islamic goons being held at Guantanamo be not only released, but sent to be school resource officers at our local government schools, if only a white president put that plan in motion.
  8. It would be OK if a white president stood back and allowed Iran to build its coveted nukes … we’re only unhappy about that because a black president is doing it.
  9. Deficits? We don’t care about deficits! Make our children and grand children and great grand children pay through the nose for our president’s spending habits … just so long as the president isn’t black.
  10. Government pork? Like we actually care? Look … you folks in Washington can spend all the money you want – how about more studies of the mating habits of Polish Zlotnika pigs? – just make sure it’s not a black president who signs the spending bill into law.
  11. We wouldn’t care if all illegal aliens were counted twice in the next Census … just so long as the president isn’t black.
  12. Those Black Panther thugs who threatened voters in Philly? The ONLY reason we’re upset that they were given a pass is because Barack Obama is black.
  13. Every single member of the president’s cabinet could be a tax cheat as far as we’re concerned … just so long as the president is white.
  14. Forced unionization? Bring it on! We love card check! We love the idea of union goons threatening and intimidating workers to sign a card saying they want to belong to a union! What we don’t like is that a black president is pushing this idea.
  15. Single-party talks with that Gargoyle that runs North Korea? It’s about time we legitimized that little pipsqueak. We’re only mildly upset here because the person who is doing that happens to be black.
  16. More regulation of the finance sector? We could care less! For all we care you can nationalize the banks and decree that only the government can make home loans .. .and you can even apportion those home loans on the basis of race if you want to … just so long as the president is white!
  17. Minimum wage? Like we care about that? Raise it to $15 an hour if you want! Just give us our white president back.

But I do weep for where this President has taken this country. He and his party using the race card against any and all opposition to advance their agenda is a disgrace. Which may explain to some extent why the media has been more a cheerleader than an inquisitor when it comes to the President and his policies. Otherwise they would have to characterize themselves as being racist.

There is nothing post-racial about Obama’s administration, Democrats in Congress, and his supporters. And every second that passes where Obama himself does not talk it down and put an end to it, is just digging their racial hole deeper.

Dropout Rate Too High?

When faced with a high dropout rate, which would you do? Would you look for weakness in the classrooms and school administrations (and Washington) and plan to improve them? Or would you raise the legal age for dropping out?

The former would solve the problem, for as much as it can be solved. The latter would reduce the rate and give the appearance of progress for a while, without actually doing anything. President Obama prefers the latter.

I know, sounds crazy. But there is a history of messaging the numbers where this administration is concerned. Most notably is how the BLS reduces (doesn’t count) the labor participation rate which, if no jobs were created, would cause the unemployment ‘rate’ to go down.

President Obama- ‘You’re the ultimate arbiter’

No! Not you. Are you serious? According to President (of the United States) Obama, the ultimate arbiters make up New York’s elite celebrities.

One thing about the Obama White House you can depend on. Under pressure, they begin to show themselves for who they really are.

And when you’re being out-raised by your opponent, something no one would have believed would be possible 15 months ago, the pitch becomes even more desperate.

Speaking in a dimly lighted, art-filled room, Obama told supporters they would play a critical role in an election that would determine a vision for the nation’s future.

 “You’re the tie-breaker,” he said. “You’re the ultimate arbiter of which direction this country goes.”

The $40,000 a plate fundraiser party in Manhattan was for 50 of Manhattan’s élite celebrities. And they are the tie-breaker, the ultimate arbiter.

This event was also the ‘prize’ for a fund-raising lottery. Two ‘regular people’ (not sure if that means unemployed) were supposed to be Obama’s guests at that dinner. And these winners were to have the opportunity to offer their advice to the President for improving the economy and creating jobs. Haven’t heard how that turned out. Have you?

Obama As Himself In RNC Ad

Very effective video featuring President Obama’s economic message from now to eternity. April 3, 2012 in remarks before the National Press Club, and June 14, 2012, at what was billed as the big “framing” speech in Cleveland on how President Obama was going to create jobs and heal the economy.

It’s pretty clear, if you want more of the same fear, uncertainty, and doubt, and high unemployment, a stagnant economy, failing schools, a no-energy energy policy, more people out of work, and an expanding ‘poor’ population, then Barack Obama is your man.
