It’s been kinda fun to watch the Obama camp in full damage control mode over Obama’s Marxist attack on business.
“Obama was taken out of context” has been their main defense,as Obama Says He Has “No Patience” For Attacks On His “You Didn’t Build That” Comment…
SEATTLE – President Barack Obama said Tuesday that he’s losing his patience over the Republican attacks aimed at his “you didn’t build that” comment.
“I have to tell you, I generally have patience with what the other side says about me, that’s a requirement of this job,” Obama said during a $5,000-per-plate fundraiser here, according to the pool report.
“And if you don’t like folks talking about you, you probably shouldn’t run for president. The one thing I do have no patience for is this argument that somehow what I’m criticizing is success… I want to promote success,” Obama said.
Obama Claims He Didn’t Say “You Didn’t Build That,” So Why Is It Still on WH Website?
A nice point made by Conn Carroll this morning. As Obama flails wildly trying to claim he didn’t say what the entire planet knows he said, he’s apparently unaware his own press office website still has the remarks in their entirety.
Meanwhile, in a Jedi tour de force Axelrod, said Obama’s “You Didn’t Build That” remark Helps Their Campaign…
Obama personally appeared in a response ad released Tuesday pushing back against the attacks, an unusual move, and the DNC is planning a large-scale coordinated response.
“I was concerned when I saw the initial ad that it might be impactful,” Axelrod said on “Morning Joe.” “I’ve concluded that it’s not all that impactful. But the ad that we did in response got a very good response in the testing that we did. Because it pushes our message forward.”
“Everything seems to be in order…”
The message being pushed would appear to be more of the “we do everything in America, together” collectivist claptrap as repeated by Obama AGAIN on the campaign trail, Monday:
“We built this country together. That’s how we sent a man to the moon. That’s how we built medical breakthroughs that saved millions of lives. If Mr. Romney does not understand that, then he doesn’t understand what it takes to build an economy where everybody has a shot to succeed.”
You did nothing to build this country, fool. Free loaders and agitators (aka “community organizers”) do nothing to “build this country”. People of your ilk have been grinding America down for a half a century.
As Romney so eloquently stated:
This is an ideology which says hey, we’re all the same here, we ought to take from all and give to one another and that achievement, individual initiative and risk-taking and success are not to be rewarded as they have in the past. It’s a very strange and in some respects foreign to the American experience type of philosophy. We have always been a nation that has celebrated success of various kinds. The kid that gets the honor roll, the individual worker that gets a promotion, the person that gets a better job. And in fact, the person that builds a business. And by the way, if you have a business and you started it, you did build it. And you deserve credit for that. It was not built for you by government. And by the way, we pay for government. Government doesn’t come free. The people who begin enterprises, the people who work in enterprises, they’re the ones paying for government. So his whole philosophy is an upside-down philosophy that does not comport with the American experience. And if we want to get people working again–and that’s my priority–if we want to get people working again, we have to celebrate success and achievement and not demonize it and denigrate the people who have worked hard, who are smart, who have made the kinds of investments to build a brighter future.”
But oh dear dearie me…I believe there may have been a racist dog whistle in there. I’m sure you saw it, too: NBC’s Mitchell Rants: Romney Using ‘Dog Whistle’ Language Against Obama:
On her 1 p.m. et hour show on MSNBC on Tuesday, host and NBC chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell decried Mitt Romney labeling President Obama’s big-government philosophy “foreign” to American capitalism: “…he is still using the term ‘foreign’ and I’m telling you, this is happening every day, it is a dog whistle.”
Whenever you say something that’s devastatingly true about Obama – it’s a dog whistle. The truth is a dog whistle to the gatekeepers.
The Mental Recession: Obama Continually Using His Daughters to Promote Abortion:
The President continues to view childbirth as a punishment, using his daughters and possible future grandchildren as supporting arguments in the pro-abortion fight, and in reasoning for government funding of Planned Parenthood clinics.
President Barack Obama got personal with his stump speech Tuesday.
“Mr. Romney wants to get rid of funding for Planned Parenthood. I think that’s a bad idea,” Obama said to about 950 donors at the Oregon Convention Center as he highlighted differences with Mitt Romney. “I’ve got two daughters. I want them to control their own health care choices.”
Politico is acting as if this is a new tactic, but the President has been using his own daughters in the War on Children consistently, citing children as economic hindrances to a better life (h/t LifeNews).
LifeNews: Obama Responds to Abortion Death: More Planned Parenthood Funding:
President Barack Obama has responded to the recent death of a young black woman from a botched legal abortion at a Chicago, Illinois Planned Parenthood clinic. Although not directly responding, Obama’s reaction on the campaign trail is for more taxpayer funding for the abortion business.
As LifeNews reported, Tonya Reaves, 24, died late Friday night after having a second-trimester abortion at a Chicago-area Planned Parenthood clinic. She died after a hemorrhage, with a cervical dilation and evacuation, according to the medical examiner’s office following an autopsy after the abortion that claimed her life.
Obama has not officially responded to Reaves’ death, but, yesterday, Obama once again called for more taxpayer funding of the abortion business during a campaign speech in Portland.
So what’s Government Motors, *Obama’s greatest triumph*, been up to lately?
Seton Motley, Big Government: General Motors Likes ‘Being Able to Fire People’:
Recall the gi-normous Leftist kerfuffle kicked up around Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s utterly uncontroversial utterance:
“I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.”
Which is a perfectly reasonable perspective. So of course the Left went apoplectic.
We the Taxpayers handed General Motors (GM) and Chrysler $82 billion in bailout coin – on which we’re poised to lose $30+ billion – ostensibly to save gigs. But from the outset, they’ve been canning people all over the place.
2009 was not a good year if you were a Republican-donating GM or Chrysler dealer.
(M)ultiple (auto bailout recipient Chrysler and General Motors) dealers who have been closed are found to have contributed millions to Republicans and mere hundreds to Obama….
“It became clear to us that Chrysler does not see the wisdom of terminating 25 percent of its dealers. It really wasn’t Chrysler’s decision. They are under enormous pressure from the President (Obama)’s automotive task force,” said attorney Leonard Bellavia.
And then there is GM Europe. Which has for years been dismal. And President Barack Obama-appointee CEO Dan Akerson has been doing his Grim Reaper impersonation.
GM Heads Roll in Europe
GM intends to shed another 500 managers in Europe, adding to the 8,000 factory workers let go over the past three years as part of a massive though only modestly successful push to cut costs.

The House member makes the case that a conservative approach is the best hope for keeping the Internet full of win.
On the national stage, California Republican Darrell Issa has been known for a curiously colorful variety of things. As chairman of the U.S. House of Representative’s lead oversight committee, Issa, has been the thorn in the Obama Administration’s sideover the “Fast and Furious” gun-walking operation that found Attorney General Eric Holder in congressional contempt and how the Department of Energy’s billions in stimulus dollars are being spent. It was six-term, 58-year-old Issa who was the responsible for not letting Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke testify at that contraception hearing. He’s also the entrepreneur who made a fortune in car alarms and other electronics, money he used to fund the 2003 recall of Governor Gray Davis. It is, rather famously, Issa’s voice that says “Protected by Viper…Stand back!” in the ’90s TV commercials.
But in the tech world, the congressman from north of San Diego is known for something quiteparticular. Darrell Issa emerged during this winter’s debate over the Stop Online Piracy Act as a politician willing to question Washington dogma about how you go about protecting copyright online. Issa and a suddenly swelling band of allies asked tough, tech-savvy question about what the legislation would do to the Internet’s workings: the effect of website blackouts on the domain-name system, for example, and the liabilities the bill would place on sites likeYouTube and everyday blogs to patrol for infringement. Darrell Issa sounded the alarm over SOPA. The Internet came running.
Something is missing. If you look at Barack Obama’s calendar for 26th of April, 2011 you will see on his schedule at 10 AM “The President receives the Economic Daily Briefing,” after that nothing. According to the daily schedule released by the White House, Barack Obama hasn’t received his “daily” economic briefing for the past 15 months (The White House
, Accessed 7/23/12).
I want to connect a few dots for you. Additional caution: you may want to sit down.1 Headline: Record number in government anti-poverty programs
In the 1970’s, a difficult economic time under Jimmy Carter with his “misery index,” 1 in 50 Americans was on food stamps. Today that number is 1 in 7. Just since 2008 the number of people in food stamp programs has doubled — and the Democrats spin this as one of their great accomplishments.
…I would never have thought that any politician could be proud of the fact that now 45 million Americans (and many illegals) are dependent on the government with the monthly SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program).
I was an avid reader of Ben Stein’s diary in the American Spectator for many years back when I subscribed. He’s the kind of guy who tries to find some good in everything.
Europe is falling apart. Mr. Obama is doing nothing, zero, about it. NOTHING. A cratered Europe will have immense effects on the world economy. Europe’s economy, in toto, is larger than ours. Is Mr. Obama thinking of a rescue plan? Is he thinking about it at all? Does he even care if we go into another leg of recession as demand for U.S. exports to Europe corrects? What is he doing? Did he resign? Where is Mr. Geithner on this? Have we ever had a President without an international economic policy before?No. Never mind. Just go to sleep.
