Flashback: Obama chief speechwriter gropes HRC Standee; Addition to the No Shit Sherlock FIles- SCOAMF Obama White House full of naif pig frat boys
Who could have guessed this would be the environment of an Obama WH? 20 Million HRC supporters, the GOP at large and anyone with a fxckin clue:
Yes who would think these pricks are useless pig naifs?
Update: 3:56pm EST: Oh did I say Gold was at
141522? It is now at $1529.40 SLV $48.10 Oil $113. USD down, down, down 73.30. Equities continuing to mainline from the punchbowl Bernanke is clearly not taking away. DOW up 101.15. The TBTF Bankstas are gonna ride the USD right into the ground if TPTB let them.
Update: 3:08pm EST: Foreign Presse France asking about the concerns many nations have about the results of the Fed actions on the sovereign currency..cough, cough, Now Ben spinning the Geithner STRONG DOLLAR TOTAL BS LINE.
Reagan and Clinton had strong dollar in my lifetime. No one else. Hey they had that super growth thing too didn’t they? Don’t try telling the Ivy League Economics Club that though.
Update: 3:06pm EST: An hour in and another nominal record for Goldilocks~ $1526.20. Yowsa. Ben has used the buzz words ‘transitory, moderate’ to describe inflation so many times I would have alcohol posinoning were I playing the drinking game.
Update: 11:08am AZ Time- GOLD at $1522.80, USD at 3 yr low as Ben takes stage.
ZeroHedge will be liveblogging in case ANYONE asks a REAL question.
I would ask:
Ben do you like the American Middle Class?
What purpose does the Middle Class serve in the American economy?
How has QE and ZIRP ‘helped’ or ‘harmed’ the Middle Class?
If the Middle Class is the largest % population in America, doesn’t your dual mandate for full employment/stable prices apply to this population cohort above all others?
Is it your intention to drive down wages for the Middle Class while allowing prices of food and energy to continue to spike year after year, all while claiming there is no inflation?
WHY ARE YOU KILLING THE MIDDLE CLASS?
PS- Why did the Federal Reserve bailout QADAFFI and leave the American Middle Class to twist in the wind?
Video: Paul Ryan Reacts: Obama continues to shadow dance with America, punts – gives another word fog full of fury, signifying nothing
More Updates at end of post.
Update: Paul Ryan is GREAT here, he is ‘disappointed’ ohhh that is exactly it! They got us all revved up for that dereliction of duty of a speech from a lectern this afternoon? Really, really bad.
What a whiff that was!
As always, Obama votes Present by not coming out and endorsing either Simpson-Bowles or anything else, (he gave them a shout out and a h/t at the end but endorsed none of their plan specifics). He did a word fog full of the same tired lines from ’08. Promises he has ALREADY FAILED TO FULFILL in the past 3 years.
Then he did a pivot to his Dr. No, stern Daddy routine, and laughably, he did it on his ‘trademark issue’ The Bush Tax Cuts!, which is of course the Big Issue he ALREADY CAVED ON!
Yes, audacity and bamboozlement is back for Obamapalooza Tour ’11-’12! All the Hype, None of the Hope!
They really plan to run on the same 6 yr old tired, broken-down trope of Obama being anti-Bush Tax Cut extension and Pro Middle Class American Dream. (and mebbe he is…IN HIS DREAMS!! It’s just his actual POLICIES that let him down? ie protecting TBTF fxckers who have housing on its back, making the TBTF Bigger, and refusing to allow Clinton era tax rates to come back).
Unless Team Obama thought they had pulled off some Total Recall number on all of us last night, uh, WTF are they thinking?
Don’t they know that WE know that he ALREADY CRUMPLED LIKE THE WET PAPER BAG HE IS on the extension of the Bush tax cuts? Did he think we somehow didn’t notice that?
Sure, he gave us the courtesy of a - ‘I was forced to extend them to protect the middle class tax cuts’ BS line again, but again, if he gave his big ‘Hostages could be hurt’ spiel last time, doesn’t he think that WE think that HE WILL CAVE and extend them again when the Big Bad GOP Grandma Eating Wolf at the Door takes we middle class ‘victims’ ‘hostage’ again?
I means seriously, what the fxck? He doesn’t even TRY to spin us anymore? This is the best you;ve got? Man it’s lookin like a Fred Thompson energy level for Obama this time around.
So, it’s official there is for all effects and purposes no functioning POTUS on issues of real import. Congress needs to do what Hillary does on Foreign Policy, try to carry out the job with limited power while a Holier-Than-Thou absentee boss comes in once in a blue moon to pixx and moan about the work accomplished.
Let’s Review the Record on Obama’s Time at the Helm:
Foreign Policy? Has to be pushed HARD for MONTHS to make a decision, often leading to deterioration of circumstances on the ground that would allow mission success. See Af/Pak, Libya.
Update-Bonus- Launch military action unsanctioned by Congress, (previously one of your favorite Boosh! criticisms), go to Brazil to promote their energy independence and offer to make us dependent on them, do not make speech to nation on Libyan action.
Economy in Recession? Outsource a giant spendulus to Congressional Leadership of Pelosi/Reid and ‘Apollo Alliance’. Bonus – Insert unverifiable targets like ‘saving or creating’ jobs, yet attach chart that clearly projects a UE target that goes unmet for THREE YEARS while claiming Success! Escape Velocity! Recovery Summer!.
Explosion of Entitlement Spending to Drown us in Debt? Outsource to a Commission for some mythical ‘consensus’, ignore said Commission report except to use as prop/tool when helpful. See Simpson/Bowles Commission,
Budget Presentation to Congress and the Nation? Whiff. Jack up spending then present ‘Budget Freeze’. Get Budget Do-Over Pass from Media. Nevermind, it’s just another whiff.
Tax Debate? Your biggest campaign promise: An End to the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich! Your raison d’être. Your ‘most deeply held political value’, the ‘shared sacrifice’, the ‘fairness rule’. You claim ‘hostages were taken, I couldn’t let people get hurt’ and position yourself, the President of the United States, as a hostage to the opposing party. You extend the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich!
Bonus- You continue to claim this is exactly the wrong policy, that it is hurting the nation but you sign the bill anyway.
Double Bonus- Bring out the last successful Democratic president to sell your plan to country, leave him alone at lectern with media. Added points since you called this man a ‘racist!’ during ’08 campaign.
Double Triple Toe-Loop Bonus - You run for a second term on same promise to End the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich! that you just extended, but give no explanation of how you can avoid the ‘hostage situation’ and accomplish this.
I can’t EVEN get into the National Security issues, it is frightening to consider NSC Advisers who do not know of Averted Terror Attacks on Large Scale in London,( TSA is FRISKING children and the left is quiescent~)Janet Napolitano claiming the border is more secure than ever, (170 bodies found in mass graves THIS WEEK just over the border), the incredible volte-face he has done on EVERY, SINGLE Bush anti-Terrorism policy he lectured about since 2006. It goes on and on.
Update to list: How could we forget-
Natural Disasters: BP Oil Spill in Gulf. Stern language against BP ‘boot on throat!’. Photo op- unlike Boosh! don’t do flyover, get down and pick up tiny tarballs. Then fly away home. Oil spill continues, unchecked, leave company who caused spill in charge of ending it. CONVENE PANEL! Oil continues to spill, unchecked. 40 Days+ later BP finally stops spill. Sidle up to lectern declare success!
Bonus - Set up ‘pot o’dough’ the go-to method of ‘solving problems’ for Community Organizers, see Al Sharpton.
Energy Policy: Allow Boosh! Era lax regulation( another of your campaign talking points) /certification/oversight of permits to continue under your Change!(d) DOE. This leads to worst oil spill in history. Convene panel! Stop all oil permits. Everywhere, land or sea.
Bonus- Give more grants to campaign supporter GE for ‘windmills’.
Double Bonus- Continue to snark at hard-working Americans who drive large vehicles, infer it is their fault as gas DOUBLES in your first 3 years. Propose new gas tax!
Triple Lutz Bonus: Fund off shore oil drilling IN BRAZIL. Announce to Brazilians you want America to be their customer. (Make announcement in Brazil while launching a military action that has not been sanctioned by Congress, leaving the American people to figure out what is happening without you.)
Conclusion- I don’t see how he has any chance of winning, even if Katie Couric and Brian Williams pick him up and carry him between his Arena Circuit Tour of College Campuses this time.
Unless of course, the conservatives within the GOP decide to sit the election out as they did in ’087. Really disappointing. I don’t think our economy will achieve Larry Summer’s vaunted ‘escape velocity’ if we get another 4 years of Obama.
Please vote. No matter who it is, please please vote.
Update 3: Jim DeMint calls Obama a ‘Bitter Clinger’!!!! BWAAAHAAA! (emphasis mine)~
“The President made it absolutely clear today that Democrats will cling bitterly to deficit spending until our nation is bankrupt. After offering an unserious budget just a few months ago, the President offered new platitudes but the same old policies. He’s still pushing for trillion dollar tax increases that would destroy jobs and cripple our economy. He still wants to add trillions in new spending to our $14 trillion mountain of debt without a credible plan to ever balance the budget….”
Update 2: AllahPundit at HotAir has more Ryan goodness from Levin.
“He’s basically a pyromaniac in a field of straw men”
Update 3/16/11: As we have all feared, Obama’s dithering and the vacuum of leadership in the world that results has allowed Qadaffi to launch what his troops have announced will be the ‘cleansing’ of Benghazi.
…A sample quote via the Journal from a Libyan man who had to flee Ajdabiya with his kids when Qaddafi’s goons rolled into town: “Tell Obama I’m pleading with him—launch just one airstrike here. Prove that Gadhafi was wrong when he said that America only cares about business interests, not human rights.”

Too Big to Fail Bankstas and the Financial Collapse: Bethany McLean, author of ‘All the Devil’s are Here” CSPAN Interview
cannot wait to read this book
Courtesy of CSPAN
Reminder: IT IS HAPPENING AGAIN RIGHT NOW, REGULATORS ARE IGNORING THE FORECLOSURE FRAUD AND FAILURE OF TBTF TO DELIVER THE NOTES TO THE TRUSTEE, THE MBS ARE PUTBACKS WAITING TO HAPPEN.…
For more on the imminent collapse and why, see Naked Capitalism, Yves Smith today- ‘Why MERS needs to be taken out and shot’
the idea of passing a Federal statue to solve MERS’ growing state-level problems is a huge stretch. As the latest report of the Congressional Oversight Panel noted,
In the absence of more guidance from state courts, it is difficult to ascertain the impact of the use of MERS on the foreclosure process. The uncertainty is compounded by the fact that the issue is rooted in state law and lies in the hands of 50 states judges and legislatures.
We’ve been told that Constitutional scholars have said that repeated Supreme Court decisions have found real estate transactions to be beyond the reach of Commerce clause, and hence not subject to Federal intervention. So the idea that MERS can be legitimated by Congress appears far-fetched.
But what are the problems with MERS? The focus so far has been on its questionable legal standing, but its operational failings are every bit as serious.
Although critics have provided a number of arguments against MERS, the most fundamental relate to MERS’ claim that it acts as mortgagee of record….
And see NC again for Tom Adams on why failure to transfer notes is a serious problem for the TBTF:
(…) Based on my review, Countrywide failed to comply with the terms of the agreement for the delivery of the mortgage notes. In addition, importantly, the trustee also failed to comply with the terms – it was required to certify it had the mortgage notes at closing and then certified annually that it had safeguarded the mortgage loan documents as required by the PSA.As a result, if Countrywide actually failed to deliver all of the mortgage notes to the trustee, as the judge describes in the Kemp case, then
(1) This is a problem for the trustee proving it has standing for foreclosures or bankruptcies, as in the Kemp case,
(2) It seems like investors in the certificates issued by CWABS 2006-8 would have a good case to pursue claims against both Countrywide and the Bank of New York, as trustee, for failing to perform as required under the agreement,
(3) By stating that the notes had been delivered and certifying all of the notes had been received, Countrywide and the trustee seem to have misrepresented the transaction to investors, by creating the impression that the trust had secured the collateral, and
(4) The trustee’s annual certification under Reg AB that the mortgage loan documents were safeguarded and secured may open the parties up to additional liability for misrepresentation to investors, despite the fact that three-year statute of limitations may have expired for misrepresentations made in the offering statement for the transaction.
I tracked down the pooling and servicing agreement in the Kemp case from CWABS 2006-8 to make sure it did not have any unique exceptions to delivery. It did not. Section 2.01 of the PSA requires the Depositor (CWABS) delivery of the note to the trustee with all intervening endorsements as follows:…read it all!
Thank to El Rushbo for the airtime, and thanks to the morons and moronettes at AceHQ, esp. Clyde:
RUSH: To the phones we go. Scottsdale, Arizona, this is Gina. Thanks for waiting, Gina. I appreciate it. You’re up first.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. It’s great to speak to you but you’re killing me with the Reverse Operation Chaos this morning.
RUSH: How so?
CALLER: I’m a recovering Democrat, and I was a Hillary supporter, and I’m working My Butt off trying to get the GOP elected. I’m taking part in the BetheWave2010.com, that FreedomWorks and Ace of Spades HQ did where you can adopt your local candidate and try to get –
CALLER: — people to come out and help, and I just think with the margin of cheating we need the recovering Democrats who will vote GOP. I don’t want them to stay home. I want them to come out and they’re gonna come out and utterly reject the Obama agenda. I think we’re going to have a tsunami. I don’t want them to stay home. (laughs) Please, come, vote GOP!
RUSH: Well, if you listened to the entire presentation Reverse Operation Chaos –
RUSH: — it includes both options.
CALLER: Okay. All right. So you’re just encouraging people who were supporting Hillary but you think they might still be voting Democrat to not vote?
RUSH: Or vote Republican.
CALLER: Well, that’s what’s going to happen. I mean, nobody –
RUSH: Well, vote Republican. The key here… Look, psst? I mean, don’t tell anybody this, Gina. It’s just between us here.
RUSH: But the point here is to get Democrats ticked off that Hillary got shafted.
CALLER: We’re there.
RUSH: All right. It’s to convince them the only way, the only way she has any chance is the Democrats have to go in the tank this election. Obama has said his agenda is on the ballot. It’s got to lose by landslide proportions everywhere.
CALLER: Right. Oh, it’s gotta be an epic fail so that they never, ever try this again.
RUSH: Right. Reverse Operation Chaos: Either don’t vote if you’re a Democrat — you know, be a Hillary potato.
CALLER: (bursts out laughing)
RUSH: Or vote Republican.
CALLER: But remember: In the ’08 primaries in Pennsylvania, Jimmy Hoffa, head of the Teamsters, said, “Oh, we’re going to have a big surprise for Hillary.” They could not get the rank-and-file to vote Obama then.
RUSH: Right. Well, but that was then and this is now.
All along the watchtower, voters defeat the establishment: O’Donnell win shows again the voters do not trust RINOs under an Obama WH

Update 3: NRSC decides it is NOT a smooth move to diss we the people~
Update 2: Romney endorses O’Donnell~
Wow, Mitt Romney endorses Christine O’Donnell. Bold play for a guy likely to be tagged as “establishment.” Not without risks, obviously…
Update: The DE Moneybomb for O’Donnell is underway! I just gave $ and I am unemployed..kick in if we want to send a message to establishment GOP and MSM that the PEOPLE decide..
All along the watchtower, the voters are kicking the establishments axx…
The pundits are missing the bigger theme in all these upsets of Conventional Wisdom-GOP establishment primary axx whoopins. Christine O’Donnell in DE tonight the latest and biggest shockah for those who cherish their well worn bromides about how elections work.
The voters are making it ABSOLUTELY FXCKING CLEAR that they do not TRUST any SQUISHY conventional wisdom establishment backed ‘safe’ candidate,
Wanna know why? Do ya pundit punks? Because we are so FXCKING FREAKED OUT by what OBAMA AND CONGRESS have done to the ECONOMY that we are having electoral weakness PURGED wherever it is possible.
It has happened over and over again, and in the few cases where there is an open DEM seat and a challenge in the DEM side it is happening there too.
DEM turnout is beyond depressed despite labor spending oodles and the neoprogs trying to shake down Lincoln in AR (well SHE was to the DEM voters), the BLOCK to Obama, therefore she won.
The people are frankly not pixxed anymore, many of us are frightened by what has happened and this has hardened our resolve to take back Congress, but to BLOCK the agenda that has flatlined the economy.
~Party on Patriots~
Unsolicited advice from a recovering DEM-I would put money into DE were I the GOP and if NV is to be taken from Reid GOP better POUR people in NOW. They tried really frakkin hard to steal NV from Hillary. There were HUGE shenanigans with the union workers being stopped from going to vote. Big Dawg had one of his ‘moments’ over that and the MSM made him look like Perot talking about the CIA, hmmm like they make ODonnell look too.
Anway they will fight like hexx dirty dirty rats in NV. Why not stroll to a win in DE with Christine NRSC? Look how low Dem turnout was in DE tonight. We recovering Dems are waiting to go vote GOP in a few weeks. It can be won. The people who tweeted their switch to DEM seat are really full of themselves aren’t they? After this primary season they still think they ‘get it’ and the VOTERS are the ones confused and making bad decisions. This wave is going to surpass their wildest dreams. Ride the wive Patriots!
Maybe these pundits should turn to science- for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Did you think the people wouldn’t be heard? Silly rabbits.
For insight into how it feels to be an American living out here holding on, tune into any Scotty scene in the climax of any ST episode. ‘She’s breakin apart captain, she canna take much more!’ That is how the country looks to us from out here. We are taking steps, drastic electoral shifts in preference to try to right the ship…
