Do The Math

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Clearly our Dear Leader is hoping you don’t.  He claims that “Chrysler has repaid every dime and more of what it owes the American taxpayer from the investment we made during my watch.”

Conn Carrol has done the math for you just in case you are one of those who think that Obamacare will actually reduced health care costs.

Total loaned to Chrysler: $14 billion

Total paid back by Chrysler: $7.56 billion

Total taxpayer loss on the Obama bail out of Chrysler: $6.44 billion

While you can argue if math is not one of our Dear Leader‘s strong points, it is pretty clear that he is betting that it isn’t one of yours.

Yet another example of why Keynesian Economics Is Wrong

Economic Growth Causes Consumer Spending, Not the Other Way

Pay attention to this video and then review the economic polices of our Dear Leader and the Congressional democrats.

A couple of Weinergate updates

Monday, June 6th, 2011

First off, the predictable response of the far left extremist spokesperson the democrat party, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

This is Wasserman-Schultz stonewalling on WeinerGate, defending her hyper-partisan college Rep. “Crotch Shot” Weiner

Avoid the question, repeat the scripted talking point, no substance, no solution.

Let’s go back not that long ago and see what she had to say when the congressman with the “personal matter” had a ‘R’ after his name.

What I’ve called for is an investigation to be completed within 10 days. And quite honestly, yes, I do think that Denny Hastert should resign . . . I‘d like to see the Republican caucus call upon their leadership, Speaker Hastert, Majority Leader Boehner, to get this resolved quickly. Do it before the election. And I haven‘t heard them say that. They‘re saying have the FBI investigate, have the House Ethics Committee investigate. They need to push their leadership to get this resolved so that they can move on, and we can make sure that we can restore the trust that they have shaken the public in Congress.

A predicable, partisan based double standard.

HT to Legal Insurrection for this one.

The second item comes via the Talk Straight blog.

File this under “Are we seeing a pattern here?”

In 2008, Rep. Weiner introduced a bill that would create 1,000 new visa slots for foreign fashion models. Specifically European fashion models for NYC’s Fashion Week. This was also known as the “increasing the number of Euro-Hotties in my district” bill.

Update: Rep. Weiner just held a press conference where he admitted to everything! The picture was of him, he sent it and this wasn’t the only case!

Of course, the leftists are still blaming Andrew Breitbart in the face of Weiner’s confession.  Rep. Weiner also says the won’t resign.  He will also get the support of the DNC leadership, who in their blatant hypocrisy, have called for anybody in a similar situation, but with a ‘R’ after his name to either resign immediately, or have their leadership remove him from office.

Kudos to Rep. Weiner for being honest when trapped and cornered by the truth.  That does put him heads and shoulders above many of his democrat congressional colleagues.

How to help balance government budgets, get liberals to pay their taxes

Monday, June 6th, 2011

In yet another example of a leftist not paying their ‘fair share’ of taxes, we have Irish pop star Bono.

Bono, who is famous for “contributing to global warming” by flying around the globe in private jets, in his never ending quest for people to give their money to causes he believes in.

Well, it seems that Bono doesn’t believe in the Irish government, because he has restructured his business to avoid paying taxes in Ireland.  Yes, Bono, and the rest of the pop band U2, are behaving just like the “greedy corporations” that their fans protest against.

Another example of the “tolerant” left

Monday, June 6th, 2011

Sydney Morning Herald columnist Richard Glover is calling for anyone who disagrees with his Luddite views on “man made” global warming to be forcibly tattooed against their will.

“Surely it’s time for climate-change deniers to have their opinions forcibly tattooed on their bodies.

Not necessarily on the forehead; I’m a reasonable man. Just something along their arm or across their chest…”

Yup, another example of how there is nothing quite so intolerant and closed-minded than a “tolerant and open minded liberal.”

Probably closer to the truth here is the maxim, “Scratch a liberal and you’ll find a fascist.”



Moving beyond “Blame Bush”

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

Now that his term in office is more than half over, our Dear Leader has finally managed to find someone else to blame for the poor economic performance the nation has been inflicted with since he and the democrats assumed power over the legislative and executive branches of government.

Not that he and his loyal minions are are going to stop blaming George W. Bush, they proved that yesterday after unemployment “unexpectedly” spiked back over 9% once again during the Obama Regime.  At least he is branching out now.

During his weekly radio address yesterday, our Dear Leader raised some trial balloons that place the blame of the dismal Obama Economy on the Europeans and the Japanese.

Yup, it’s clearly the fault of Japanese and Europeans, not his dangerous addiction to the emperically discredited Keynesian economic theories.  Yup, the American people clearly knew what they were doing when they elected a man who managed to go $300,000 in debt on an annual household income of just over $500,000 a year.  OK, I’ll give the American people a pass on that one, since I’m betting the vast majority of voters who get their “news” from MSN sources like MSNBC, the NY Times, CNN or CBS News never heard that interesting, yet highly relevant fact.

For how well a sample of potential voters are ‘educated’ by the MSM, let’s roll some video.

I’m concerned that a vast majority of those who voted for our Dear Leader appear to absolutely no clue as to what a Keynesian is. Once again, let’s check the video.

OK, say we cut them slack on Keynesian theory, most people don’t know much about economics. This video shows a sample of Obama voters and quizzes them on some basic political knowledge. What is more interesting than what they don’t know is what they do know, and what they think they know.

Six Things The Mainstream Media Would Say About Obama If He Were A Republican

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

John Hawkins wrote this list in an article at  Go there for the details on each item.  OK, sure, there are obviously more than six, but it’s  good start.

1. This guy is way too stupid to be President of the United States!

Ok, this one is going to drive the Moonbats crazy since their religion is based on our Dear Leader being a “super-genius”, but seriously, check just about anything he says without a teleprompter. Plus, why are all of his college transcripts sealed? What is he hiding?

2. Obama’s an amateurish cowboy who’s wrecking our image around the world! Obama’s an amateurish cowboy who’s wrecking our image around the world!

3. Obama’s going to bankrupt the country by giving our money to his corporate cronies!

4. He’s the job-killing, gas-price-raising, economy-wrecking President!

5. Obama’s not an authentic black man.

I can hear the left’s shouts of “Racism” already. Stop and take a look at what Leftists say about any Black conservative. Pretty consistent with what Mr. Hawkins is proposing, and that isn’t counting the vile, racist slurs the left uses.

6. He’s an arrogant jerk who cares about no one but himself!

The number of full rounds of golf since taking office are current in the mid 90s.

Unemployment numbers snark

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Andy has some prime snark going on over at AoSHQ.  Here is money quote:

I’ll limit this quickie post to that nasty 3-letter word: J-O-B-S. Today’s unemployment report showed that we, Unexpectedly™, added only 54,000 jobs in May and the unemployment rate shot back up to 9.1%. Backing out the 62,000 jobs added by McDonald’s leaves … a one-term president.

Additionally, coblogger emeritus Geoff pointed out that we’ve shed 430,000 full-time jobs in the last couple of months and are now back where we began the year. It’s as if the entire population of Reno cried out in terror and was suddenly silenced given a pink slip.

democrat spokesperson Wasserman-Schultz throws the truth to the wolves

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Ya, ya…a DNC rep not including the actual truth in a public statement is a ‘dog bites man’ story, but democrat Rep. Wasserman-Schultz takes her job above and beyond the realm of normal DNC spin.

In her statement to CBS’ Harry Smith, which he didn’t call her on, “We’re going to throw you to the wolves, and allow insurance companies to deny you coverage and drop you for pre-existing conditions,” Wasserman-Schultz manages to wrap a lie up with fear mongering.

A lie, you say? Yup, Wasserman-Schultz is a lying liar according to both and the Washington Post.  The Washington Post article went as far as to give Wasserman-Schultz “three Pinocchios” and labeled her statement “bogus.”
