Obama Rescues Economy!

After years of economic mismanagement by “many of the same people who are now waxing political about fiscal responsibility while opposing our efforts to reduce deficits by getting health care costs under control, ” Obama tells us in his Brookings speech, today, he has brought the economy back from the brink.

Not that there’s any reason to doubt the Messiah, at all the AP  fact-checks his speech, anyhow.

And oh…this is awkward, Rasmussen reports:

Most Americans Oppose Second Stimulus and Using Bailout Funds for States:

President Obama hopes to use money still unspent from the $787-billion economic stimulus plan to fight the nation’s 10% unemployment rate, and one of the ideas on the table is to channel money to states to keep them from laying off public employees.

But a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 22% of Americans favor providing federal bailout funds to states with serious financial problems. Fifty-eight percent (58%) oppose giving bailout money to financially troubled states.

On top of that, 56% of Americans oppose the passage of another economic stimulus package this year. While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other congressional Democrats are hoping to spend more to combat unemployment, just 33% favor another stimulus plan.

Editors note:

I’ve made a couple of additions to the photoshop since it first appeared, FYI.


Rush’s Apoplectic Response To Obama’s Jobs Speech

I’m afraid this poor man is going to have a stroke, responding to Obama’s lame speech at The Brookings Institution:

markknoller on Twitter reported: Obama closes speech: “The skies are brightening.And the horizon is beckoning once more.”

I tweeted back: Are oceans receding too?

Hat tip Pat Dollard:

Rush Nails The Mental Patient


Once again, Obama is aided and abetted by the MSM:

WaPo repeats “inherited” deficit fallacy


A Tale Of Two Poems

This pretentious work was written by a noted leftist; an attempt at art in the service of Socialism:

One thin September soon
A floating continent disappears
In midnight sun

Vapors rise as
Fever settles on an acid sea

Snow glides from the mountain
Ice fathers floods for a season
A hard rain comes quickly
Unknown creatures
Take their leave, unmourned
Horsemen ready their stirrups

Passion seeks heroes and friends
The bell of the city
On the hill is rung

Then dirt is parched
Kindling is placed in the forest
For the lightning’s celebration

The shepherd cries
The hour of choosing has arrived
Here are your tools

Who is this shepherd who will save the world from this destruction? Answer here.

(I wonder if he got an NEA grant?)

This poem is written by a conservative. It’s an honest expression of her anxiety, as she watches  the nation being steered  in a direction ruinous to all but an elite few:

It seems these days
I’m in a haze,
And I can’t concentrate on things,
Don’t eat or sleep,
Feel incomplete,
And kinda scared and creepy.

I look over my shoulder lots
And shudder when I watch TV.
I bite my nails and cuticles
And watch my words very carefully.
I bite my lip a lot
And fidget with the buttons on my blouse.

I’m jittery, my teeth I grate
I twitch, I shake, I ruminate
Lately I’m perplexed and pinched
In pain, I pout and ponder.

Why aren’t people shocked or something,
Why aren’t people up in arms?
Does anyone read history?
Or see red flags, or hear alarms?
The streets are filled with deaf and dumb
As I squeal like a mouse,

My husband really misses me.
My parents think I’ve gone crazy.
Only Glenn Beck understands me,
And, of course, Sean Hannity.
But, it seems, besides us three,
And the nice people who drink the Tea,
There’s no one else who can see

Maybe I have lost my mind,
Or have been drugged by some narcotic.
Maybe I’m watching a movie called 1984
Or maybe I am just psychotic.
If I’m in a dream, fast asleep
I guess I will just try to keep
My eyes shut ’til this goes away
And I awake to a happier day
When my ukulele does not play
This dire song of distress and dismay

Who is the actress/comedienne who wrote this cri de coeur?

Hint: She had the current resident of the White House pegged early on…

Answer here.


Latecomers to this post are in luck! Because now you can listen to the Shepherd read his poem on CNN.
