"Obusha, wake up and smell the Italian Roast: NO ONE is voting for you, despite MSNBC and Faux News
  who want you to be the Democratic candidate. Let's get an *actual* Democrat  on the ballot and Obama
  can then follow his dream and sit on the board of directors at GE, Exelon and/or TEPCO."
      --  LRP,     Link

  There's no way to prove this, but I'd bet $20 that LRP was an Obamabot in 2008.

  Those who were the most in love in 2008 are the most disappointed now.

The picture Newsweek should've used...

Another Bailout for the Banks
  by Robert Sheer


The whole thing is nuts. The economy is a shambles, saved from a free fall only by the Fed’s unprecedented
promise of free money for banks for at least two years. That’s how long a seven-member majority of the
Fed’s Open Market Committee expects it to take for significant relief to take hold for the 25 million Americans
who can’t find full-time employment.The 10-member committee’s three dissenters in Tuesday’s decision,
all unelected Fed regional board presidents, are free-market ideologues who don’t believe the government
has a role to play in reversing the nation’s economic disaster.

Funny, that promise of free money for two years gave back 3/4 of the money investors lost Monday.
Now it's Wednesday and investors have lost most of the 3/4 that was gained and it could get worse.

...gosh, I miss Clinton and his surplus.

If I can get THREE people to say they'll buy a sticker,


I'll order 100 of these today.

It’s time to give old Al another shot.    I think he can beat Ferdinand the Bull in a primary.  
Al did win the presidency.    Hillary would win too but it’s probably too late for her.   

In my dream of dreams, Ferdinand announces he will not run for a second term clearing the way for Hillary.   
That would put a bright golden haze in my meadow.

Oh what a beautiful fantasy!

Subject: What did the downgrade do?
Bart, to hear the right-wing blowhards talk, the S&P downgrade of the US debt shows that our debt
is no longer safe for investment.  They also claim the free market is always right.  So let's look at what
the free market has to say about our debt.  If S&P is right, the interest rates on 10-year treasury bonds
should be up above 4% now, as shown by the red line, not down to 2.5%, as in reality.

Likewise, the higher-rated companies (by S&P) listed in the Dow should be comparatively safer,
so the Dow should be up around 14,000, as shown by the red line, rather than down to 11,000 as in reality:

So, either the Republican talking point about free markets is pure BS or the S&P downgrade is pure BS. 
Well, if you believe the markets, investors are expecting average annual deflation of half a percent
over the next ten years…but we're worried about hyperinflation?
 Russ the Pillar

They say Wall Street hates uncertainty.

Obama said in Dec 2010, "The super-rich need more money," and he gave them a trillion dollar tax cut.

Then two weeks ago, Obama said, "The super-rich need to pay their fair share of taxes," but then he
flip-flopped and agreed to cut spending and gave the super-rich a pass on taxes at the behest of the Teabaggers.

Then Obama said yesterday, "The super-rich need to pay more taxes and we need more stimulus."

People say I'm too tough on Obama - but isn't he his own worst enemy?

Why doesn't he have any idea what he believes in?

"We've got a real problem!  This is a mathematical fact! Tens of trillions of dollars are being
  extracted from the United States. Democrats aren't doing it, Republicans aren't doing it.
  An entire integrated financial system, trading system, taxing system, that was created by
  both parties over a period of two decades is at work on our entire country right now.
  And we're sitting here arguing about whether we should do the $4 trillion plan that kicks
  the can down the road for the president for 2017, or burn the place to the ground, both of
  which are reckless, irresponsible, and stupid."

Iraq's Sadr demands U.S. forces pull out



Iraqi radical Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr Tuesday called on U.S. troops to pull out from Iraq,
blaming the Americans for the chaos and sectarian strife that engulfed the country after 2003.
"Go forth from our holy land and go back to your families who are waiting for your arrival impatiently,
so that you and we, as well, lead a peaceful life together," Sadr said in a message addressed to the
U.S. troops in Iraq, which was posted on his website in Arabic and English languages.
"Enough of this occupation, terror and abuse. We are not in need of your help.
We are able to combat and defeat terrorism and achieve unity," Sadr said.
The Iraqi people have only witnessed poverty, fear, human rights abuses, poor security conditions,
terror and sectarian militia which the Americans themselves have invented," Sadr said.

I vote we give them what they want - let's get the fuck out.

Subject: my wish for 2012

I wish Bart...to stay home on election day....like I did in 2008......because I am sooo
embarrassed by what we democrats have to put up with from this coward Obama.

Look we are in a mess as a country...why??  Because Obama has caved to the republicans
on every issue.  This whole country is currently being run on the republican agenda.

Worse - the Teabaggers are running the GOP who are running Obama.

Obama didn't close Gitmo, he watered down the health care bill and gave everything to
big pharma and the insurance companies....  Obama didn't stand with the unions when
they were under attack.....he gave the the rich more of Bush's debt-raising tax breaks.

You have just stated the facts - are you sure you're a Democrat?  Just kidding...

Obama escalated the unwinnable wars ....and now he is caving in on closing loopholes
and raising taxes on the rich while cutting programs for the poor and middle class.

This is a Democrat???

CB, I get your anger, but if you stay home, President Bachmann will appoint insane,
unqualified assholes a lot crazier than Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court.

Casey Anthony "most hated' person in America
Can you believe she beat out Paris Hilton?


Casey Anthony, the Florida woman who was found not guilty recently of murder, is the most
hated person in America, according to a new poll that tracks public perceptions of celebrities.

Anthony was more disliked than California's "Octomom," O.J. Simpson and Paris Hilton,
according to the poll released on Wednesday by E-Poll Market Research.

I find it hard to believe anyone could be more hated than Paris Hilton.

After all, she's good-looking, rich and has had several sucessful TV series
whereas Casey Anthony and OJ Simpson are only guilty of murder!

How is it even possible to hate someone more than Paris Hilton?

Wait - there's another reason to hate her - she's thin!

Subject: Hillary

Bart, why do so many liberals think Hillary Clinton is one of us? 
She is no better than Obama.  She is the queen of bluedog democrats.

She helped them get into power.

She supported the Patriot act and the Iraq war. 
She was on the board of the directors of Walmart. 
She had a campaign manager that worked with Halliburton. 
Anyone who supports her is as much a sheep as those who still support Obama.

For the sake of argument, let's assume everything you wrote was true - let me ask you this:

Is Hillary a dishrag who lets everyone walk all over her?
Is Hillary one to surrender up-front before she's even seen her opponent's demands?
Is Hillary a naive wallflower who wants to "forgive and forget" and "look forward?"
Is Hillary the type who'd waste 2.5 years trying to get wild dogs to like her?
Would Hillary join hands and sing Kumbaya while the house burns?

You can call Hillary ten thousand nasty names, but
"a mouse who's afraid to fight back" isn't one of them.

You can call Hillary twenty thousand nasty names,
but odds are her presidency would look a lot like her husband's.

Tell the truth - YOU voted for Obama and now you're real angry
so you're dragging Hillary into your Pile of Disappoinment.

"It's really incredible to take in what's happened in the last 30 years. From Reagan + $2 trillion in debt,
  to Clinton amassing a surplus, to GW/Cheney with "Deficits don't matter" and +$5 trillion in debt,
  to Obama inheriting all the debt and Great Recession and getting shat on for not fixing everything in
  two years, to most recent S&P "Tea Party" downgrade.  Is this the road to ruin we always hear about?"

Did you know that S&P is owned by McGraw-Hill publishing?
CEO Harold McGraw III is a big Romney supporter and supported W, W's daddy and Reagan.

It looks to me like this "downgrade" was just another gop scam.

So why doesn't Obama fucking MENTION that?

Oh, that's right - he's not a fighter...

This Teabagger is crazy.

If you make $50 a month and your rent is $100 a month, you can't pay your bills.
Does this mean you have an out-of-control spending problem?

No, it means you need to raise more revenue, which is what taxes do.

The Teabaggers and the Rethugs have taken a vow to Grover Norquist.
He wants to shrink government "until it's small enough to drown in a bathtub."

The Teabaggers say you need to move into a home that rents for $75 a month,
but if you only make $50, does that mean you spend too lavishly on rent?

"It’s getting harder and harder to trust Mr. Obama’s motives in the budget fight, given the way his
  economic rhetoric has veered to the right. In fact, if all you did was listen to his speeches, you might
  conclude that he basically shares the G.O.P.’s diagnosis of what ails our economy and what should
  be done to fix it. And maybe that’s not a false impression; maybe it’s the simple truth."
