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.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

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”

Healthcare Update: Insurers Try to Cut a Deal…they propose Hillary’s Plan…

Another lesson from NO SHXT SHERLOCK FILES for Obama:

Insurers are agreeing to cease the practice of charging higher premiums to people with pre-existing conditions (you know, the sick) if Congress and Team Obama will agree to MANDATE ALL AMERICANS GET COVERAGE…

Breaking: Senate passes $410 Billion Omnibus…Amendment to save DC Vouchers fails….Sessions e-verify amendment fails…

Update; Looks like Alexander voted yes, Wicker MS, Murkowski AK, Bond MO, Cochran (R-MS),  Shelby (R-AL), and the usual suspects,
Snowe (R-ME), Specter (R-PA),

Collins,R- ME, VOTED NO!! so did Dems Baygh of Indiana (our pick for HRC VP), and Feingold WI, McCaskill MO of all people voted nay, but Reid got the MO GOP senators to vote aye to cover her axx,

The Corner has it. Also Amendment votes:

Update: Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-Ala.) amendment on e-verify also came very close — it was tabled on a 50-47 vote. By contrast, the amendment to save the District of Columbia’s Opportunity Scholarship program was soundly defeated.

The cloture vote will be available here in a few minutes.

What total hypocrites the Obamas are if they let those kids at Sidwell lose their vouchers when their own daughters attend that school and Teh One had a scholarship to an exclusive Hawaiian Prep School which just today he credited for having given him the ability to hold his office…. and I have to believe Obama could have called Durbin of all people his former co Senator of Illinois and had him table the bill…just wrong..

Tea Party Update: OH – Saturday, March 14th and AZ Tax Day Tea Party planning underway….

Via Instapundit

taxdayteaparty2

OH update from Shots on the House:

Attending the Columbus Tea Party? Join the Facebook Event and invite your friends!

I’m proud to announce that I’ve been busily organizing a “Columbus Tea Party”, a grassroots event to protest Governor Strickland’s plans with the stimulus money, with the folks from the Ohio chapter of Americans for Prosperity. I just received final word that the permit requests are in, the organizing is well underway, and we can announce the following “official details” about the event:

Who: Americans for Prosperity, College Republican Groups, ShotsontheHouse.com, and grassroots activists from across the state of Ohio
When: Saturday, March 14th, 2009 at 11 AM
Where: Capital Square (The Statehouse) in Columbus, Ohio
What: A Tea Party Protesting Governor Strickland’s Stimulus Plans and Fee Increases
Why: Because the Governor’s plan is to take one-time money and dig us into a whole of future debt. The bad bill that came out of Washington is going to lead to bad policy here in Ohio, and we want to voice our dissent

With word out that our friends in Southwest Ohio will be holding an event on Sunday the 15th, we decided we’d push forward with a Saturday event in Columbus to really give the state of Ohio a shot in the arm. We’ll be looking forward to meeting tons of concerned Ohioans, who are encouraged to bring signs protesting the Governor’s plan to dig us into a bigger hole with stimulus money, protesting his fee increases, and protesting Ohio taking money from this moronic “econonomic recovery package” which has done nothing but send the market into freefall.

If you would like more information, feel free to contact me, or just watch this page, http://www.shotsonthehouse.com/teaparty for more information on this grassroots event. Bloggers like Michelle Malkin and Glenn Reynolds have been covering tea party events across the nation, so stop by their sites, thank them, and enjoy their coverage. Also make sure to read up on what Americans for Prosperity is doing nationwide to fight this good fight. See you Saturday the 14th!

BREAKING UPDATE: Obama Budget: Capital Gains and Dividend Tax Increases go into Effect October 1 2009!!!

Kudlow breaking CNBC I have not seen or heard it anywhere else! Rise in capital gains and dividend tax as well as the changes to carried interest income, are going into effect THIS YEAR! WHA????? WTH?!?!?! IN THE MIDST OF THE DECESSION! (depression-recession)!!!! He MUST be trying to kill the market why the hell else would anyone do this? The Hill is a madhouse!!!

Kudlow reports changes go into effect OCTOBER 1, 2009, which is the beginning of our government FY10!!!!!! DAMN THEY ARE SLICK AND OUR SLEEPING MEDIA HANDMAIDENS TO TEH ONE SAY NARY A WORD!!!

This will ALSO hurt small business, since Team Obama generated their estimated ‘savings’ by pushing back the small business waiver of capital gains tax until a phase-in that does not begin until 2014!!!!!!!

WHERE ARE THE JOBS GOING TO COME FROM?!?!? Ask Congress before they pass this like TARP ONE and the Stimulus without reading it!

Spread the word! Call your Critters! This is crazy, this is GUARANTEED to kill any possible recovery in the markets, what the hell is Larry Summers doing???

Is the economic council lobotomized? Suffering from kool-aid poisoning? Cloned?! Are they Kodos and Kang in disguise? Cylons? Pod-people??

I heard SO MANY people during the primaries and later the election claiming Obama was a centrist Democrat like Big Dawg and Obama’s advisers were always touted as the evidence of that, i.e. Why would Volker and Summers and Jamie Dimon endorse him if he weren’t a capitalist?? yada yada yada

Seems the much vaunted Business Council led by Immelt and his innumerable titled economic councils chiefs advisers cooks valets whatever the hell he calls them are useless props.

Obama Budget: Suprise! That Small Business Tax Cut on capital gains doesn’t kick in until …2014!!

Good Grief. This was the centerpiece of the last Presidential debate, a broken promise by Team Obama..

Ben Smith:

Obama’s budget plan closes the deficit in part by postponing a promised tax cut well into his second term. (MiM here: getting ahead of yourself there Ben!)

The focus on tax cuts was central to Obama’s campaign against John McCain, and his surprising strength in polls on the question of taxes.

One of those promised cuts — the second bullet point in his campaign economic planwas a pledge to “eliminate all capital gains taxes on startup and small businesses to encourage innovation and job creation.”

That cut has been deferred, a Republican source notes: The elimination only begins phasing in, according to the budget overview (page 122) in 2014, well into Obama’s second term.
