Subject: Obama & compromise

Bart, why is everybody assuming that Obama was rolled or has no negotiating skills?
Why not consider that he is delivering on promises made to Wall Street, Big Insurance
and the Military Industrial Complex for the thirty pieces of silver he got?
 Mike C.

Between "evil" and "overwhelmed by the job"
I'm hoping he's "overwhelmed by the job."

"Obama's approval ratings have sunk so low, polls show he'd lose to Mitt Romney.
  The biggest reason: a sharp drop in approval among Democrats and liberals..."

    -- Steve Thomma with McClatchy-Marist polls    Link

  So, Obama thinks he can win in 2012 without Democrats and liberals?
 Who's doing the thinking over there at the White House?

Subject: taxes - gag me

Hey Bart the only compelling argument I've heard in defense of (temporarily) extending all
of the Bush tax cuts was made by Lawrence O'Donnel about a week ago. (His show is quite good BTW)

He said that failure to pass the bill at this stage would result in the bottom tax rate
going up from 10 to 15% for America's most economically vulnerable folks.
That is a 50% kick right between the ears of the working poor.

Obama may truly be between a rock and hard place on this one, even if he may have been
able to cut a much better deal had he acted like a "leader" beforehand.

What I'm hearing, including from Obama is "This is the best deal we could get."
I say that's part of the problem.

When Bush wanted something done, he'd say, "We're f-ing doing this and I pity
the fool who tries to stop me"
and everybody fell in line, including the Democrats

Obama goes around asking, "What would you be willing to accept?"

The Tourist - good movie

Everybody hates The Tourist - I wonder why?
It's two hours of Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp playing spy games in Venice.

I remember seeing District 9 last year, which was 2 hours of the ugliest monsters ever
fighting in the biggest dump/slums in the worst/ugliest part of South Africa.

A week later, we saw A Perfect Getaway which was about supermodels
running around beautiful Maui for two hours.

Guess which one I liked better?

At USATODAY, Claudia Puig writes,

Who knew Johnny Depp could be wooden and unconvincing in a role?

He plays a math teacher from Wisconsin!   I'm sorry he wasn't sword-fighting
with ghostly pirates with a parrot on his shoulder and a Keef Richards lisp, Claudia.

Claudia writes, Dialogue is beyond stilted and unintentional humor arises from
banal lines dully delivered.
When Frank is invited to join Elise in her magnificent
Venetian palazzo suite, he remarks: "This really is a very nice hotel, isn't it?"

That's banal writing? I wonder what Claudia says when
she sees a Venetian palazzo suite for the first time?

I'm guessing there are at least two types of moviegoers.

There are those who like prison movies and watching super-ugly monsters fight in slums
and there are those who like to watch beautiful people make love in beautiful locales.

Clinton fool or liar?

Clinton backed Obama's tax cut deal quite strongly.
Is he a fool, a liar, or what, now that he's on-board this with Obama?

It might be what I said last (?) issue, that Clinton enjoys being the guy
who a president can call when he can't afford to lose on an issue.

Has any former Democratic president ever come out
against a sitting
Democratic president?

No Confidence in Obama
  by Marc Perkel


Send e-mail to Bart

Subject: Gag me

To say I am angry with Obama at this point is an understatement.

If the White House thinks that they can shit on folks like myself and what I hold to be
core Democratic values, and then count on me to turn around and vote for them in 2012,
then they are the ones who "need to have their heads examined."  Sorry, but I refuse to
enable Democrats like Obama while they plunge knife after knife into my back.

Ain't. Gonna. Happen.

At this point, I will be writing in my candidate of choice in the 2012 race -- if Obama
can't take California without my vote, he's got bigger problems then that vote could solve.

"If the Democrats believe Clinton's tax increases led to a boom economy and Bush's tax cuts
  destroyed the economy, why do they want to extend the Bush tax rates?"
    -- the vulgar Pigboy,   


 The answer is - WE DON'T.

 Obama's NOT doing what the majority of Democrats want him to do.
He's fallen in with a bad crowd who are influencing him negatively.

“Mike Palecek reminds me of Socrates the gadfly who asked unwelcome questions, Diogenes with his
lantern looking in vain for an honest man, Chekhov the man with the hammer challenging the complacent
family to share their meal, Kerouac the ever on the move, somewhat hysterical searcher, and he reminds
me of many Americans who as children were so blasted with propaganda that they’re devoting the rest of
their lives to challenging the lies and all who tell them. In this land where babies are brought by storks
and buildings collapse due to unpatriotic bricks, we need the gadfly because no leader, preacher, guru
or saint will wake us up, though the Doomsday clock is ticking close to twelve.”

“The Death of Sardanapalus and Other Poems of the Iraq Wars”

Guess the City


Subject: last issue's mystery city

Bart, last issue's mystery city is the city hall in Savannah, GA.
I’ve never been there, but I recall the gold dome and bridge from a film,
either Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil or Gingerbread Man.

Your site keeps me sane and not feeling so alone. Thank you.

Subject: last issue's history mystery

Bart, last issue's history mystery is Robert F. Williams and Mabel Williams. 

Robert F. Williams (February 26, 1925 – October 15, 1996)  was a militant civil rights leader whose
open advocacy of armed self-defense anticipated the movement for "black power" in the late 1960s
and helped inspire groups like the Student National Coordinating Committee, the Revolutionary Action
Movement, and the Black Panther Party.

In order to avoid an FBI warrant for kidnapping, in 1961, Williams fled the country eventually landing
in China. He returned to the US in 1969. He was extradited to North Carolina to face the kidnapping
charges which were dropped in 1975.

Williams' 1962 book, Negroes with Guns, details his experience with violent racism
and the pacifist Civil Rights Movement philosophies he disagreed with.
