Rushin' Dressing

When you are President Obama, you can rush an unread, un-debated 1000+ page telephone book budget through the congress, but if you are candidate Obama, talking about President Bush, it is an entirely different matter.....

Take note of the commentary on multi-pronged issue diversion, discussed in the video. This is what was attempted with the Gate's controversy. Try and saturate the news with distractions.

Good grief.

Nancy's Health Care Corner

An Insolurant. Live with it. Die eventually, probably from lack of proper medical attention.

And now.. The 'Red Skull' Nancy Pelosi
informs us that she 'has the votes' (Bloomberg)

Leaders are “making progress” with Democrats who want more cost cuts in the legislation, Pelosi told reporters in Washington today, a day after President Barack Obama met with a group of Democrats to try to convince them to back the plan.

To Democrats, cost cuts mean rationed socialism, not fiscal discipline. All bureaucrats will still get their slice of angel cake, while they keep their premium health plans. Everybody else will get an expedited appointment with, well... angels.

“I have no question we have the votes on the floor of the House to pass this legislation,” Pelosi said.

What this usually means, is that she's promised to pad another couple of hundred pages upon and between the current thousand or so. Nobody will read it prior to voting, anyway. Those pages will contain more juicy, ankle grabbing rape, in the form of treasury booty, scheduled for each American taxpayer and their collective brood of debt cursed children.

“We want to reach an agreement and go to markup in our committee,” possibly as early as tomorrow, said Waxman. “We have not resolved our issues, but we are getting close.”

The way to resolving the issue is to replace the single deadly bear trap, with a series of midnight leg-hold traps. By the time they are finished, the result will be the same. You will have to chew off a major appendage, before age 50, to escape from the waiting room.

Obama is looking for movement on Capitol Hill before holding a news conference at 8 p.m. today Washington time, where he will press lawmakers to carry out the most sweeping changes in U.S. health care in more than four decades.

Sweep the old, and infirmed and unborn right under the rug, into the acid bath. The only non-swept, un-changed health care coverage, will be covering congress.

He will say that Americans are counting on Congress and the administration to “get this done.” “They are looking to us for leadership,” Obama will say in his opening remarks, according to excerpts released by the White House. “We must not let them down.”
There is a rush to get it done, while the stimulus failure deflates. That failure, rushed to pump more expensive noble gases into the torn balloon of four decades of liberal loan guarantees. Barney's bubble is still being pumped. The dollars are still flooding out of the rip in the balloon. Hey! We got an idea! Let's do the same thing to health care coverage!

Obama again will argue that reining in rising health-care costs is central to future prosperity and economic stability.
No sir. We will not employ the proven methods of consumer feedback, tort reform and fostered competition to control costs. We will bring down the hammer of big government bureaucracy, instead.


Isn't it obvious?

Big government has such a stellar track record for controlling costs, with thousands on toilet seats, billions on crumbling tunnels and trillions on bad mortgage debt.

The overhaul effort suffered a fresh blow today in the Senate, when Republican Orrin Hatch of Utah quit bipartisan talks aimed at reaching a compromise.
So Hatch is now being partisan. Good! Tell him to loan a piece of his spine to Graham, who's now wilting into a limp douche, regarding the Sotomayor nomination.

The Blue Dogs on the panel “can’t support the bill as it stands,” Representative Mike Ross of Arkansas, one of the group’s leaders, said in an interview after the meeting.
The dog is man's best friend. Only real men work hard and pay their taxes. Remember that, Fido.

Indiana Democrat Baron Hill told reporters today that negotiators still have “a lot of work to do.” Yet Hill added he was “optimistic that maybe we can get something done sooner rather than later.”

Right. You want at least a whole twenty minutes of bitching on the floor, before you destroy twenty percent of the economy.

To help win over the Blue Dogs, Waxman agreed to a provision to create an independent commission that would set reimbursement rates for Medicare providers each year. Ross said such a body would take politics out of decisions on the federal insurance program for the elderly, giving Congress an up-or-down vote on any changes, without amendment.
And Waxman carefully left out the Obama health Czar, who will give granny a immediate-down vote on her cancer MRI. Don't worry, she will get some pills to help her pass-the-coil, instead of smothering in a hot French attic. Way to go, Barry! That's progressive!

During the White House meeting, Obama asked lawmakers to take “a favorable attitude toward his proposal” to set up the five-member commission, Waxman said.
Of course 'attitude' is not really an administration tool, used to appoint commissioners. White house chiefs of staff perform that meager function.

Today, one Blue Dog member, Tennessee Democrat Jim Cooper, called the idea “definitely better than doing nothing” because “Congress will never address these issues on its own.”
Yeah. Issues like illegal invasion of the country by health care seeking baby bombers, never get addressed by congress, thus creating a health care 'crisis'. It looks like Jim is ready to roll over for some bling.

Pelosi said the proposed commission is “appealing to a broad sector of our caucus” concerned about cutting costs. “But we want to do it in a way that respects the prerogatives of the Congress” and the president, she said.
That's the Nancy way of saying, it's our way, or the highway. That is... highway funds going to a state that is willing to go our way.

Now that's the Chicago way, right Rahm?

The current House plan, unveiled on July 14, would expand insurance coverage to 97 percent of Americans while adding $239 billion to the federal budget deficit over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
There it is in black and white. You will not get to keep your private coverage. That's just an Obamunist pipe dream.

Obama ramped up the pressure amid concern that deadlines are slipping.

"deadlines are slipping" is a code-phrase for "his adulatory media persona is slipping".

So far, two of the three House committees and one of the two Senate panels with jurisdiction over health care have completed their work [crime] . When the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the Senate Finance Committee finish debate, each chamber can bring its version [insulting crap] up for a vote.

Obama asked Congress to pass measures before summer breaks slated to start July 31 in the House and Aug. 7 in the Senate. After each votes on a version, the two chambers must still work together to fashion a compromise version for final passage.
Hey, let's face it. The guy can only delay his Seppuku budget number report, from becoming public knowlege, for only so long. Sheesh.

Asked today if the House should stay an extra week in Washington in August to pass the legislation, Pelosi said 70 percent of Americans believe it would be a “good idea.” She declined to say how she felt about delaying the recess.
See the graphic above to get an idea of Nancy's feelings about the pressure being exerted by the unanointed public.

“We are waiting to see what the Senate will do,” she said. “But we are going in a forward direction.”
Note: It takes a forward step to make sure you plumet off the edge of the cliff, on the very first try.

The Senate finance panel is drawing attention now because it’s the only committee left with a chance of bipartisan consensus. And House members are reluctant to take a vote for higher taxes that may not be part of a final version.

“The danger, pretty clearly, is you end up with a piece of legislation down the road that’s different than what the House voted for,” said Representative Richard Neal, a Massachusetts Democrat.
It really is amazing how bold these clowns have gotten, regarding their public utterances.

This is what we call, on the childhood American living room carpet, a combination of musical chairs and monopoly. The congressmen want to be sure that, when the music stops and they don't have a chair, they get one of those 'get-into-a-chair-free' cards. You do the civics math.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus of Montana has failed to reach a compromise with Republicans weeks after he initially planned a vote. Hatch said he’s worried that Democratic leaders might press for provisions Republicans oppose even if Baucus produces a bipartisan proposal.
Hey Orrin.. Duh.

“They’re going to pass two very partisan bills, and then put the crunch on Max,” Hatch said.
Yeah, dummy. They are going to pass very partisan bills, very partisan nominees, very partisan house rules, very partisan senate rules, very partisan media campaigns....

The game is called: 'We are going to chain and whip you, until you beg for pork and mercy." You either fight it like a man, or you polish your bondage leather.

Choose life fools. Choose it for yourselves and your constituents.

Obamanomic Benchmark #2

This is more hilarious than the Obama benchmark for unemployment that touts jobs created or saved.

From Politico:

Larry Summers cites Google search as progress

The number of people searching for the term “economic depression” on Google is down to normal levels, Summers said.

Searches for the term were up four-fold when the recession deepened in the earlier part of the year, and the recent shift goes to show consumer confidence is higher, Summers told Peterson Institute for International Economics.

Summers continued the administration’s push-back against critics of President Barack Obama’s handling of the recession, defending the economic stimulus package against Republicans critics who have tried to paint the program as a failure because it hasn’t stemmed the unemployment rate.

Did Larry see if the number of searches for "total economic collapse" or "bloody American taxpayer revolt" were up, instead?

The creepiest horrorshow to visit your wallet since Jimmy Carter, starring Timmy Geithner. He is not just a savant. He is not just an idiot-savant. He is just an idiot.

Washington Post-er Child for Hypocrisy

The Post has been lauded for decades, for its' expose on the Nixon administration, by the venerable Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.

What a difference a few decades can make. Now the same paper is discovered by others, selling access to another American presidential administration, through it's own staff.
It does not matter that they retracted the offer in light of criticism. What matters is, they did it in the first place, without even noticing how wrong it was.

The Post, Woodward and Bernstein spent those decades, until 2005, protecting the identity of their source, Deep Throat. Now, the paper is warmly embracing an administration, which is openly punishing and firing whistle blowers for exposing government corruption. This shameful pirouette, reversing any credible stand on ethics in journalism, is just another new outrage, in a string of new outrages.

We are all watching in horror, as the media re-shapes itself, through its staffing, into an Orwellian Ministry of Truth, serving this new celebrity dictator president. I have no idea what Woodward and Bernstein's feelings on the president and the Post are. All I know, is during these first horrendous first few months, their employer from the Nixon years, is becoming just another unctuous media adulation pariah.

This whole trend is turning the collective stomach of America. Let's look at some harvested quotes from Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.

Certain political figures think when you call them and ask them for a comment; that you are somehow doing something that you shouldn't be doing.
- Bob Woodward
Now we feel that way about the media too.
The lowest form of popular culture -- lack of information, misinformation, disinformation, and a contempt for the truth or the reality of most people's lives -- has overrun real journalism. Today, ordinary Americans are being stuffed with garbage.
- Carl Bernstein, ""Guardian" (London)", June 3, 1992
I certainly agree with Carl on that one. I wonder if the Guardian is just another one of those big smelly garbage trucks, now delivering American garbage to Europe?
I believe Watergate shows that the system did work. Particularly the Judiciary and the Congress, and ultimately an independent prosecutor working in the Executive Branch.
- Bob Woodward
Now that the 'system' knows what worked in the Watergate scandal, it is making every possible effort, in heaven and on earth, to make damn sure that is not allowed to happen to the Obama administration.

We are in the process of creating what deserves to be called the idiot culture. Not an idiot sub-culture, which every society has bubbling beneath the surface and which can provide harmless fun; but the culture itself. For the first time, the weird and the stupid and the coarse are becoming our cultural norm, even our cultural ideal.
- Carl Bernstein
This presidency is proving that that process is near completion, with a nauseating success record.

I don't think there will ever be a permanent truce, but I believe the media needs to be more careful and be willing to count to 10 before rushing on the air or into print.
- Bob Woodward

The greatest felony in the news business today is to be behind, or to miss a big story. So speed and quantity substitute for thoroughness and quality, for accuracy and context.
- Carl Bernstein, In "Guardian," (London), June 3, 1992
Unfortunately Bob and Carl, this has proven to be unprofitable. Rushing to the air and print, ensures that damaging, unpopular junk science and junk economics can be squeezed into our sausage casing, before anybody has a chance to complain about that funky smell.

I suspect there have been a number of conspiracies that never were described or leaked out. But I suspect none of the magnitude and sweep of Watergate.
- Bob Woodward
How many conspiracies, exceeding all Watergate dreams, have been either stifled by choice, or leaked and ignored by this current race baiting executive, his media counterparts and his activists in the judiciary? Acorn, AIG, census taking, voter fraud, Wall Street, et cetera, cetera, cetera....

Increasingly, the picture of our society as rendered in our media is illusionary and delusionary: disfigured, unreal, out of touch with reality, disconnected from the true context of our life. It is disfigured by celebrity, by celebrity worship, by gossip, by sensationalism, by denial of our societies real condition and a political and social discourse that we the press, the media, the politician and the people are turning into a sewer.
- Carl Bernstein
Spoken like a true conservative, Carl. Maybe you should guest host on the Limbaugh radio show?

I'm not going to name some of my colleagues who are very well-known for their television presentation, but they wouldn't know new information or how to report a story if it came up and bit them.
- Bob Woodward
I can name a few: Keith Olbermann, Chris Mathews, Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper, Bill Moyers, John Stewart.......

If information is true, if it can be verified, and if it's really important, the newspaper needs to be willing to take the risk associated with using unidentified sources.
- Bob Woodward
Unfortunately Bob, the papers have been way too willing to use unidentified sources, provided by the likes of the Huffington Post and daily Chaos. The data is untrue and thus, cannot be verified. But what does that matter, nowadays?

Lawyers didn't seriously get involved in the Watergate stories until quite late, when we realized we were on to something.
- Bob Woodward

Now we have the opposite and more dire situation. Lawyers are getting seriously involved, very early in the process. Of course these lawyers are working for the administration and his party. Of course, these lawyers are engaged in the process of destroying rivals, like the former VP candidate, Sarah Palin.

Many people have their reputations as reporters and analysts because they are on television, batting around conventional wisdom. A lot of these people have never reported a story.
Bob Woodward
I swear to never call myself a reporter or analyst. I am a blogger who analyzes what I see, for the sake of my own civics education. However, if I were an insufferable left wing ideologue, people on TV and in the government would rush to call me a reporter and an analyst.

Newspapers that are truly independent, like The Washington Post, can still aggressively investigate anyone or anything with no holds barred.
Bob Woodward
How do you feel about the Post's independence today, Bob? Yes, today, as of this writing, knowing what we all know?

Nixon's attempts to order subversion of various departments was bound to come out in some form.

- Bob Woodward
Almost ALL of Barack Obama's orders subverting departments have come out in some form. The problem is, nobody in the media is willing to pick up the ball and run with it.

Nixon's grand mistake was his failure to understand that Americans are forgiving, and if he had admitted error early and apologized to the country, he would have escaped.
- Bob Woodward
Looking at today's situation, I would say Nixon's big mistake was in actually admitting any wrongdoing whatsoever. He should have boldly lied about, denied it outright and found some way to have his political minions destroy the both of you. That's the right way. The Chicago civil activist way.

Not a season passes without new disclosures showing Nixon's numerous attempts at criminal use of his presidential powers and in fact the scorn he held for the rule of law.
Bob Woodward
Now, nary an hour passes, during a normal business day, where Obama is not writing some criminally unconstitutional executive order, or appointing a mentally deranged sycophant or toady to a critical position, holding authority over the rest of us.

I hope to God that Bob and Carl are happy with Washington and all the comissars serving them in the Obama administration.

Meanwhile, the rest of us will plan on adding the word hypocrisy to the same list of tired, overused words and phrases occupied by like, excellent, cool and yuh-know.

Strange Bedfellows

I am absolutly stunned, by the Obama cabal's frightening level of media control. Even a despicable fool like Helen Thomas, is not fooled.

It is a sure thing that the immigration laws and Acorn will be used in this same fashion, to exert control over future voting.

From Breitbart:
