Sunday Evening Ditty – “Blame Someone Else” By Glen Shulfer (Video)

Talented singer/songwriter Glen Shulfer has penned another great political song which he is graciously allowing me to debut here at Nice Deb.  It’s a catchy little tune about taking back America from the Blamer in Chief.  See what you think:

Some supplemental reading:

Maggie’s Notebook: Barack Obama New Record: Biggest Spender in World History:

Democrats continue to “blame Bush” for debt and deficit. George W. Bush is blamed for the spending in the 2009 “Bush” budget (fiscal year October 2008 – September 2009) which Bush DID NOT SIGN after his own budget submitted to a completely Democrat Congress for that time period was reworked under the control of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Bush’s budget proposed a 3% increase in spending. By the time Pelosi, Reid and Democrats, et al were finished with it, spending increases soared to 17.9%. The budget was NEVER presented to Bush for signature and Democrats ran the government with continuing resolutions until Obama took office in January 2009. Obama then signed the Democrat budget. G. W. had nothing to do with that monster. Tuck this info away and use it when you are in the presence of your liberal in-laws.

Doug Ross: Counter Revolution:

No federal government has damaged the American free market more than this one. No federal government has stolen more employment, more freedom, more private property — from this and future generations — than this one. No government has created more regulations, more unconstitutional dictates, more — dare I say it — slavery than this one.

Now, given all of these facts: can there be any doubt what Barack Obama meant when he twice proposed, “a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as our military?

The Obama-Democrat Left has mounted the first successful counter-revolution — against the American Revolution — in our history. Using an incessant series of attacks by a fifth column, the intent of the counter-revolution is to eradicate the effects of the American Revolution. The most magnificent society ever created hangs in the balance.

Mark Steyn: Ground Control to Obama:

Obama can urge us all he wants to band together because when we dream big dreams there’s no limit to what Big Government can accomplish. But these days we can’t build a new Hoover Dam, only an attractive new corner office for the assistant deputy assistant deputy assistant secretary to the secretary of deputy assistants at the Department of Bureaucratic Sclerosis, and she’ll be happy to issue a compliance order that the Hoover Dam’s mandatory fish ladders are non-wheelchair-accessible, and so the whole joint needs to close. That we can do! If only we dare to dream Big Dreams!! Together!!!

Golfer in Chief Hits The Links For 100th Time of his Presidency (Video)

Barack Obama played his 100th game of golf as President, today in Chicago, and Granny Jan has produced another outstanding video to mark the historic event:

Keith Koffler of White House Dossier, who  has been keeping close track of Obama’s golfing since the beginning of his presidency, filed this report:

Obama has already played golf eight times this year. He actually is a little off his normal pace – perhaps campaigning is intruding on golf. The president golfed 28 times in 2009, 30 times in 2010, and an incredible 34 times in 2011.

Obama’s golfing takes about five hours, including the motorcades back and forth from the fairways. If one thinks of this as taking up  much of the day – include getting ready to go and cooling off afterward – its fair to say that Obama has spent more than three months of his presidency golfing.

Emily Miller at The Washington Times estimated that it’s even more: the equivalent of four months of time spent on the golf course.

That’s quite a milestone in just 3 1/2 years. As it takes him about six hours to drive to the greens and complete 18 holes, Mr. Obama has spent the equivalent of four months’ worth of work time golfing. Meanwhile, the U.S. economy has been stuck in a sand trap.

I don’t usually rag on the President for playing golf because, really – who cares what the guy does in his spare time? But doesn’t it seem just a tad hypocritical  that this Occupy-supporting, class-warfare promoting, hopey-changey “Man of the People”  would have such a preference for what is widely seen as a sport of the 1%?

Koffler notes:

The White House carefully downplays Obama’s golfing, rarely talking about it and releasing few pictures of the president swinging away. A search of the White House uploads on the Flickr photo-sharing website finds only a handful of shots of the president playing golf, compared to nearly two dozen of him playing basketball, which he spends far less time at.

Then there’s the media double standard…  I still remember how savagely George W. Bush was attacked for playing a few rounds of golf, early in his presidency.

George W. Bush gave up golfing in 2003, explaining his rationale five years later in an interview with POLITICO, saying it was wrong to play during wartime:

I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.

Obama clearly disagrees and has been unperturbed by criticism of his golf, maintaining a steady pace even during an election year.

Well – uh – congratulations, there, Mr. President, on your 100th round of golf.
