Why Obama surrendered on Taxes
The short answer? Because that's who he is   by David Swerdlick

Nowadays it's popular to apply the "bad poker player" analogy to Obama and Democrats when
it comes to their failure to match wits with Republicans on expiring tax cuts. David Leonhardt has
a "Kenny Rogers Theory": Democrats can't figure out when it's time to hold 'em or fold 'em.
But that's not quite it, because they fold all the time.

A shot of Chinaco for the writer...

Obama's problem, as any good poker player will tell you, is that he hasn't figured out that in
order to win, you have to force the other guy to make a decision about his chips before he forces you.

That's two shots of Chinaco for David Swerdlick.
Instead they surrendered a deal Monday night that gave the GOP what it wanted: extending the Bush
tax rates for all brackets for two more years. It's not only a retreat from Obama's pledge to cut taxes
only for those households making under $250,000; it also means that rates will be set to expire again,
just in time for Republicans to dust off the issue and drag it back out for the 2012 presidential election.

How is it possible for an intelligent man to make the same mistakes 25 times in a row?
Obama opens every negotiation by saying, "You can have what you want - what can I have?"

Subject: Is Rick Perry retired?

It appears Texas Governor Rick Perry retired and is now drawing a retirement annuity of $7698 a month.
But wait - he's also still the governor and he still gets his regular $150,000/year salary too, all this while
he's running for president full time. So - in Texas the governor can not do his job, collect his salary,
and start collecting retirement at the same time - WOW!

Texas makes California look conservative in comparison.
And - OMG - he's a Republican!

"He’s been consistent since he changed his mind.”
     -- Christine O'Donnell, (R-Witch) on why she supports Mittens,

 I could fix Mittens flip-flopping problem in three minutes - I wonder why nobody else has?

 All he's got to say is, "Yes, I've changed my positions as I've gotten older and wiser.
 When I debate someone, sometimes I think, 'They have a point,' and then I reconsider
 my position and sometimes I realize that I was wrong, so then my position changes,
 but always towards the Right, and I'm much wiser now than I was in decades past."

 It's so f-ing easy, but Romney had no clue how to get out of this terrible trap..

 There are times when I think 10-year old Bartcop, or at least high-school Bartcop
 could whip most of today's best and brightest in a debate.  It's so f-ing easy.

 Politics is easier than taking a whiz - why are are politicians so clueless at how to play the game?

How FOX News helps Obama


Obama is mired in horrible numbers – except for the ones showing him beating all-comers.
Even though the US economy is slumped in the doldrums, some of the country's shrewdest
commentators make a serious case that Obama could be heading for a landslide victory in 2012.
How to explain such a turnaround?  Fox News.
By any normal standards, Obama should be extremely vulnerable. Not only is the economy in bad shape,
he has proved to be a much more hesitant, less commanding White House presence than his supporters
longed for. And yet, most surveys put him comfortably ahead of his would-be rivals. That's not a positive
judgment on the president but an indictment of the dire quality of a Republican field almost comically packed
with the scandal-plagued, gaffe-prone and downright flaky. And the finger of blame for this state of affairs
points squarely at the studios of Fox News.
Toe-sucking asshole Dick Morris, veteran political operative and Fox regular, noted the phenomenon himself
the other day while sitting on the Fox sofa. "This is a phenomenon of this year's election," he said. "You don't
win Iowa in Iowa. You win it on this couch. You win it on Fox News." In other words, it is Fox – with the
largest cable news audience, representing a huge chunk of the Republican base – that is, in effect, picking
the party's nominee to face Obama next November.

Great point.
Thanks to FOX News and the Teabaggers, only the loons can get traction with the Party of Insanity.

The sane Rethugs, ( yes, they exist ) didn't get in because how can you out-debate crazy?

From USA Today

Is it true what they say?
That Obama spends half of his time making
bad decisions and the other half surrendering?

Subject:  Newt will not be the GOP nominee?

Hey Bart,
I'm just e-mailing you to tell you I agree with you 100%, Newt will not be the GOP nominee. 
I know you want people to e-mail you who want to place a wager on that,
but I figure you also want to hear from people who agree with you. 

The way I see it, the GOP gets incredibly excited by any candidate that isn't Romney. 
They go through them one at a time (Bachmann, Perry, Cain, and now Gingrich) until they realize
there is nothing there.  It's just a matter of time for Gingrich, although I'm sure he'll win at least
one of the primaries.  Eventually he'll say something so crazy he'll drop like a lead balloon. 

Then, it will just be Mittens taking the fight to Obama, wearing only mittens.
Oh, as far as Obama winning the 2nd term?  I agree with you there 100% as well.
Keep Hammering!
 Nick in Seattle, WA

But isn't it funny how we're looking at a repeat of 2008?

The GOP's rallying cry back then was "Anybody but McCain because we HATE McCain
because he's not
a real conservative," so then Rudy became their beloved front-runner,
then Fred Thompson, and then Ronald McDonald and I think Trump was in the mix.

They tried to
find anybody to run for president but McCain but everyone
else seemed even worse so, in the end, they went with bad, old Sen Depends.

Conclusion: The GOP hate themselves.

Today's GOP is 'so embarrassing'
by former senator Ralston Purina

“I’ve been watching some of these Republican debates and they’re just terrible. Terrible.
It’s embarrassing for me as a Republican to watch this stuff.  What have been the big applause
lines in these debates? Well, a statement that Governor Perry is responsible for killing 234 people
on death row. Or that we favor torture. Or that we’re creating a fence on the Mexican border that
electrocutes people when they try to cross it. Or when people show up at the emergency room at
hospitals and they’re not insured don’t treat them. And that, I mean these are the big applause lines,
today's Republicans just hoop and holler when they hear all that.
It doesn’t have anything to do with the republican party that I was a part of. This is just totally different.
And all of these people who are saying this, y’know, and claiming that, y’know, they’re for all this stuff,
they also sort of ostentatiously say, “Oh, we’re very religious people. We really, we’re just very pious,
Christian people.” They were for torture, and electrocution of the people on along the border and all of that.
That doesn’t have anything to do with, is contrary to the Christianity that I understand.

MSU band plays Dixie at Lynching site
Band director claims he didn't know...

Missouri State University is apologizing after its band performed "Dixie"
at a site where three black men were lynched in 1906.

Interim President Clif Smart says the song was an "unfortunate selection"
and won't be played again in a public venue.

The Confederate anthem has come to represent the ideology of the Old South.

The band played "Dixie" at the Nov. 18 dedication of Park Central Square in Springfield,
the southwest Missouri city of Nazis and racists where the university is located. A plaque
identifies the square as the location where three black men were lynched more than a century ago.

Smart says the band director didn't understand the significance of the song.

Springfield Missouri is a very, very racist place.
It's where Missouri's "Christlike" evangelicals live and breed.

Springfield is what makes Missouri a Red state.
St. Louis and Kansas City, you'd figure, are about evenly split but when
you mix in hyper-racist, lynch-them-all Springfield, Missouri turns red - blood red.

If you're non-white and you get a flat while driving thru Springfeild,
drive on your damn rims till you get to Joplin.

Half of Americans now living in poverty


But the sons of bitches who stole those TRILLIONS of dollars aren't going to jail
because Obama is obsessed with killing poker and jailing producers of medical pot.

George, we'd all LIKE to get behind Obama but he's one screw-up after another.

If he was merely doing a bad job, we could look past his shortcomings.

But the bastards who stole our jobs, our savings and our homes?
Obama let them go free while he's out trying to find ways to kill what little joy we have left.
Why can't he get his priorities straight, George?  Or even 50% straight?

Perhaps having immense wealth, a mansion on Lake Como and every girl in the world
has blinded you to the fact that we're not complaining for no reason.

Maybe YOU could talk some sense into him?

I have a friend in Montana who might go to federal prison because he legally sold pot while
following every Montana law on the books (and he was friendly with the cops) but Obama
decided he was a danger to society and we both know that's f-ing crazy.

Talk some sense into him, George, get him to reduce his fuck-ups down to 50%,
tell him to stop surrendering even before asked to and to stop that "looking forward"
bullshit and we'll all agree to cut him more slack - do we have a deal?

The Last Soldier to Die in Iraq


As the last U.S. troops withdrew from Iraq on Sunday, friends and family of the first and last
American fighters killed in combat were cherishing their memories rather than dwelling on
whether the war and their sacrifice was worth it.

Nearly 4,500 American fighters died before the last U.S. troops crossed the border into Kuwait.
David Hickman, 23, of Greensboro was the last of those war casualties, killed in November by
the kind of improvised bomb that was a signature weapon of this war.

"David Emanuel Hickman. Doesn't that name just bring out a smile to your face?" said Logan
Trainum, one of Hickman's closest friends, at the funeral where the soldier was laid to rest
after a ceremony in a Greensboro church packed with friends and family.

Trainum says he's not spending time asking why Hickman died: "There aren't enough facts
available for me to have a defined opinion about things. I'm just sad, and pray that my best
friend didn't lay down his life for nothing."

Today's Mystery Car


Last issue's Mystery Car Revealed       

Bart, Last issue's Mystery Car  is a 1955 (maybe '56?) Buick Roadmaster 2-door "hardtop".
They called it that because there's no pillar between the front and rear windows so you could have
wide open spaces like a convertable, but with a hard top. I'd bet most Roadmasters were 4-door sedans
so this model is probably particularly rare. I learned to drive in a 54 Buick Special, a very similar model.

My dad drove it for 13 years before rust consumed it in Chicago.
I always dug the fake exhaust ports on the fenders.
That's still a signature styling element on Buicks.
