Obama Walking the Plank of His Own Making. Fellow Democrats Sawing Plank.

Schadenfreude.  It’s what’s for dinner.

Democrats are running away from Obamacare, which will likely be ruled unconstitutional in June.

Sen. Jim Webb said the law would be Obama’s “biggest downside” in the election and had cost him “a lot of credibility as a leader.”

Some of us were at your office, providing such advice to this affect during the run up to this vote, Jimmy.  I saw you walking down the hallway towards your office and once you saw us gathered outside your office you ran from us.  We were there and we were ignored.  Now you hike up your skirt and run away from a re-election bid because you know you screwed up big time.

No worries though, mate.  We’ll release the same fury against your replacement candidate, Timmy Kaine, that we would have on you.  Timmy is a big Obama guy.  Big Obama guys don’t do so well with the electorate since 2008.

And then there’s this from former Congressman Artur Davis from Alabama.

“I think the Affordable Care Act is the single least popular piece of major domestic legislation in the last 70 years,” he said. “It was not popular when it passed; it’s less popular now.”

And now Democrats are running away from President Obama’s blockage of the Keystone XL Pipeline.  Funny how constituent feedback about the pain at the pump brings new wisdom to even the most radically green Democrats.

Sharks are swirling below the plank.  Sharks of Obama’s own creation.  Shutting down and restricting coal fired power plants isn’t going to help, either.  When electricity rates ‘necessarily skyrocket’ (your words, not mine) going into the cooling season, this will add more pressure.  Coal fired power plants are shutting down because of Obama.

When GSA employees lavishly waste taxpayer money and flaunt it on You Tube, that doesn’t help either. 

When Obama uses the Justice Department to promote illegal gun running resulting in the deaths of American border and ICE agents and this Justice Department turns a blind eye to voter intimidation perpetrated by the Black Panthers while harassing states over voter ID laws and immigration enforcement laws, that doesn’t help either.

When Obama racks up $5 Trillion in debt in 3 years, tosses our money at pet projects that are massive failures like Solyndra, LightSquared, and others, that doesn’t help either.

When Obama takes an unprecedented number of vacations while the ranks of the unemployed moved from gainful employment and self esteem onto demeaning government dependency, well that don’t much help, either.

You know what, Champ?  You’re doomed.  If your cratering poll numbers don’t advise you, then your own party distancing themselves from you certainly does.

America’s got a big party planned for November 6th. 

You’re not invited.

 

 

Tiger Wood’s 924 Day PGA Tournament Drought Over. U. S. Citizen’s 1082 Day Drought without a National Budget? Not so much

Today marks the first day since Tiger Wood’s world came unravelled in scandal and shame that he’s won a PGA Tour event. He just won the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

That’s his first PGA Tour victory since September 13, 2009.
It was 157 days before Tiger’s last victory that the the Democratically controlled United States Senate, also riddled with scandal and shame, passed a budget. April 9, 2009.
Congratulations to Tiger and shame on the Democrats.

 

A Response to Tim Kaine’s Bumpersticker

Failed former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine’s Senate campaign has ripped off of Ken Cuccinelli’s KC4AG bumpersticker from 2009, when Ken was running for Attorney General.

This miserable former head of the Democrat National Committee, a man responsible for inflicting the scourge that is Barack Obama on the nation, the man who has publicly celebrated the reviled Obamacare, the man who wishes to fill the shoes of another miserable failure, Senator Jim Webb, a phony of the highest order, has offered up this as his bumpersticker.


This is my response.

Maybe I should go into production with this.

 

Democrats Gone Wild: Part 14 Trillion….. and counting

Congressman Allen West’s office receives a little love letter with a supicious white powder in it. Not anthrax. Probably just Johnson & Johnson’s powder from the writer’s diaper. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Schumer’s head is exploding over his dwindling power and is lashing out as well, calling the Tea Party contingent of the House of Represenatatives FLEAS.

It sucks to be Chuck

When either party goes to the extreme they don’t do the right thing,” said Schumer. “My experience is they lose politically, but much more importantly they do what is wrong for the country substantively.”

Yes, Chuck. That’s how we got Obamacare and that’s why you Democrats got your asses handed to you.
That was a brilliant observation. Thanks for the money quote. That will be of good use in the future.

Oh and Chuck, I AM a FLEA and I’ve got bubonic plague and I’m all over your ass.

Update: Make that 14 Trillion and ONE.
Congressman Jim Moran of Virginia goes ape shit on a disabled veteran in a Town Hall asking why he was not in Congress while the impending government shutdown is imminent and the man is concerned about getting paid.

Moran’s caring response of “Sit down or Leave” comes at about 4:10, after the veteran took umbrage at the Congressman characterizing his comments as “caustic”. The Democrats desire to maintain the high ground, accusing Republicans for the Government shutdown, keeps proving to be tenuous and they continue to provide volumes of campaign fodder at an impressive rate.

Keep giving them the microphone.

 

Will Tim Kaine leave the comfort of the DNC Cuckoo’s Nest?

The conventional wisdom up until this point led everyone to believe that the ineffectual destructive former Governor of Virginia and present Chairman of the Democratic National Committee was the natural choice to run in the place of the One and Done Senator Jim Webb’s seat.

But Timmy Kaine has been playing it cool and the anticipated announcement hasn’t come, to the surprise of many.

Is he having too much fun in the nut house?

Is he fearful of running against Republicans George Allen or Jamie Radtke who are embroiled in a primary struggle of their own? Is he playing hard to get with his party? Does he not want to give up ‘Medication Time’?

Well, this is interesting.

Former Virginia Governor Doug Wilder, the nation’s second black Governor, is saying NOT SO FAST on the coronation of Dim Kaine. In Wilder’s assessment, Congressman Bobby Scott would be a great choice as a United States Senator.

Bobby Scott and some other guy and some other women

“I think you’ve got to understand what makes up a Democratic primary,” he said. “And Congressman Scott should not be taken for granted nor should that base of vote.”

Wilder isn’t bashful about throwing down the race card in a threatening way there, is he?

I can’t agree with Wilder that Scott would be a good Senator, but he’d be an ideal candidate for either of the Republicans. In 2009 Scott enjoyed an American Conservative Union rating of 4 out of 100. 2010 was much worse, where he garnered a Zero rating.

Both men are dyed-in-the-wool liberal statists, without question. The only real difference between them is the amount of melanin in their skin, from what I can see.

It’s apparently the only thing that Doug Wilder can see.

Just when I thought this race would be boring.

Update: Thanks to Bryan Preston at the PJ Tatler for the link ‘Tim Kaine for Senate…?’

 

Senator Jim Webb: Champion of Small Business

Just received a robo-email from my underachieving Senator in which he crowed about voting for an amendment to remove the 1099 reporting requirement on transactions greater than $600 that he imposed on us when he voted for Obamacare.

Cutting Red Tape for Small Businesses

Yesterday, I voted to pass an amendment to eliminate a 1099 tax form reporting requirement that was enacted under the federal health care reform law last year. I was an original cosponsor of the amendment, which the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced it “strongly supports.”

Melonhead hits the UNDO button on the bad legislation he foisted off on us and we’re supposed to what… thank him? Incidentally, he voted AGAINST the repeal of Obamacare in its entirety on the same day.

Jim Webb. A self made man who quit work too early.

Here are your targets for 2012, Virginia. And yeah, I said TARGETS. Defeating both are top priority.

Jim Webb: Conscience of a Conformist

Jim Webb campaigned as a war hero and his own man, impervious to pressure from special interests and demands from the political machine.  Although I honor his military service and bravery, much like John McCain, heroic service during war time does not necessarily translate to heroic service in politics.

In spite of the very clear message from his constituents that they wanted no part of TARP, Stimulii, Bailouts, SCHIP, the confirmation of Eric Holder, Cash for Clunkers, Spending Freeze, School vouchers and Obamacare, Webb always surrendered his professed convictions and voted with this guy every single time on the major issues.

Birds of a Feather

But post-election Webb is seeing the handwriting on the wall and he’s doubling back, asserting that he quietly warned leadership that they were treading on thin ice with voters.

“I’ve been warning them,” Webb says, sighing, resting his chin on his hand. “I’ve been having discussions with our leadership ever since I’ve been up here. I decided to run as a Democrat because I happen to strongly believe in Jacksonian democracy. There needs to be one party that very clearly represents the interests of working people … I’m very concerned about the transactional nature of the Democratic Party. Its evolved too strongly into interest groups rather than representing working people, including small business people.”

I recall going to the Code Red Rally against Obamacare at the Senate on Dec. 15th of last year to meet with Webb’s Chief of Staff.  There were 20-30 of us in the hallway in front of his office waiting for our audience, when along ambles Jim Webb reading a document.  When he got about 50 feet away he glanced up, saw us there and did a quick exit into the nearest door.  The courageous Senator wanted no part of facing his constituents then and meekly joined his Party to vote in favor of Obamacare on Christmas Eve.

The time for hiding is over as the 2012 campaign started a week ago tomorrow.  It will do you no good to tell the voters that you were warning your leadership.  That was the time to show the courage of your convictions.  Either you don’t have any or you simply failed.

Update from Pajamas Media:

Senator Jim Webb (D-VA), a former Republican, rode a Democratic wave to a narrow victory in 2006, but PPP found Webb trailing former Senator George Allen (R-VA) in a rematch.

This sounds like a set up by the Democrat leaning PPP.  They’d love nothing more than to dance the Macaca again.  Sorry, but George Allen is my last choice to run against Webb.
