I found this piece that Obama would be best to read….and any other lefty “progressive”.
People want better schools, but nobody wants to rock the system, the unions, the teachers, the role of parents.
People want lower health care costs, but nobody wants to endure the changes to medicine, law and bureaucracy it’ll take to get it.
People want lower insurance, but nobody wants to adopt the changes in lifestyle and behavior that’ll drive it.
People want to be thinner, healthier and happier, but nobody wants to own actions it takes to get there.
People want lower gas prices, but nobody wants to radically shift their consumption patterns.
People want homeless brothers and sisters off the street, as long as it’s N.I.M.B.Y.
Next time a waffly left wing politician comes at you with wanting “change”, hit them with the above.
Joe Biden is a more of a danger alive than dead…according to Osama bin Laden who refused to add Biden to his hit list.
In targeting Obama for assassination, the terrorist mastermind suggested Biden should be left to take over because he would lead the U.S. ‘into a crisis.’ The Veep has been ridiculed by many, but to be so dissed by al Qaeda is cold.
You know your image management has taken a wrong turn somewhere along the way when, as vice president of the United States, you’re not even considered worth killing by al Qaeda. Such is the ongoing indignity of being Joe Biden.
“Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make Biden take over the presidency for the remainder of the term, as it is the norm over there. Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the US into a crisis.”
Yowza. It’s one thing to have the Republican opposition deriding you as a buffoon or certain members of your own party grumbling that maybe you should be bumped from the ticket. But when the world’s most famous terrorist is plotting to bring down America by putting you in charge? That’s just cold.
The left wing used to hate on George W. Bush and his propensity to war. They are strangely silent on the mounting body toll of Obama.
Just five months after a team of Navy SEALS killed Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan, President Obama’s administration claimed yet another kill Friday in its hunt for terrorists abroad. With theassassination of Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born cleric known as the “chief of external operations” for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, new debatehas arisen over whether it’s appropriate for a president to order the killing of a U.S. citizen — and how closely Obama’s policies mirror those if his predecessor, George W. Bush.
Since taking office the president has overseen the killing of a remarkable number of terrorist leaders.
The article then presents a “rogues gallery” of 8 dead terrorists.
from the LA Times
President Obama’s summer woes have dragged his approval rating to an all-time low, sinking below 40% for the first time in Gallup’s daily tracking poll.
New data posted Sunday shows that 39% of Americans approve of Obama’s job performance, while 54% disapprove. Both are the worst numbers of his presidency.
As Andrew Bolt says:
The US voted for a symbol, blindly choosing one of the least experienced people to ever become president of the United States.
Not surprisingly his approval ratings are showing this. Unfortunately though he rates the same as a generic Republican until a Republican is named and then Obama wins. If the Republican’s select Bachmann then Obama will win easily.
George W. Bush was a good president in many respects but in others he was a wasteful, free spending looter of the economy.
The graph below from the New York Times shows why. A similar graph here would look really sick for Labour. It would highlight Clark and Cullen screwing up our economy badly by locking in spending and blowing large cash amounts of white elephants that need comprehensive feeding plans like Kiwirail.
Of course harden trolls and pinko apologists will attempt to describe tax cuts as spending. They aren’t. And this post is about the validity or otherwise of tax cuts. It is about locked in spending forcing the hand of future government.
Barack Obama promised “Change”. Americans have got chump change and you know things are bad for the President once Jon Stewart starts whaling on your ass.

Good grief, who is advising Len Brown? Oh wait, its Labour apparatchik Conor Roberts.
Len Brown has a full page ad in the Herald today and it is straight out of the Obama playbook. They even stole the fricken by-line.
Len Brown is dull, boring and un-original. If that is the best his team can come up with, a rip off of Obama’s campaign then he is doomed.
I guess it could have been worse he could have
To channel Obama or Shrillary or who ever at Democratic HQ shows just how out of touch Len Brown is with Aucklanders.
The ad itself is just waffle and meaningless platitudes.
Labour have hung their hat on this chump, they will fall along with him.
