Quid Pro Quo … Detroit City Council Woman JoAnn Watson Tells Obama, We Voted for you, Now Bail us Out with Government Bacon
Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You“. Ask what you can do for your country.
Ask not what you can do for your country, but what you can take from your country. Welcome to the Obama “Quid pro quo” BACON BAILOUT.
The Left demands government pork for votes … Detroit Council woman Joann Watson wants some “bacon” from Barack Obama after blacks voted for him. Elections do have consequences and now it appears time for Obama to payback for all of his class warfare political rhetoric. Watson literally said its time for some “quid pro quo”. Since blacks in Detroit, Michigan overwhelmingly voted for Obama, they deserve a bailout. Thus, as stated at Michelle Malkin, a city that has been consistently mismanaged and run into the ground now expects and demands a bailout. It is the same old story as usual. Provide no fiscal responsibility and expect that some one else will bail you out. All that is accomplished is the same vicious, idiotic cycle continues. Look for Illinois and California to be asking Obama to bail out their failed states as well. It is obvious that people voted for Obama for what he could take from others to give to them.
Our people voted for Obama and now we expect pork from him. How morally bankrupt has this country become?
The city of Detroit faces a major financial crisis and one member of city council thinks President Barack Obama should step in and help.
City Council member JoAnn Watson said Tuesday the citizens support of Obama in last month’s election was enough reason for the president to bailout the struggling the city. (Click the video player to listen)
“Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that,” said Watson. “Of course, not just that, but why not?”
As Weasel Zippers opines, Bacon is defined as Obamaphones, EBT cards, food stamps, “stimulus” money.
One might think that the United States would learn from what happened across the Pond.
So President Barack Obama and the Left think that raising taxes n the so-called rich is the answer, eh? Take a good look what happened when the British PM raised taxes on millionaires. Two-thirds of millionaires either left the UK or reduced their taxable income in order to avoid the 50% take rate. The British naively thought they were going to increase revenues by merely increasing the tax rate on millionaires and doing simple math. However, instead of raising funds, it actually cost the UK £7 billion in lost tax revenue.
Almost two-thirds of the country’s million-pound earners disappeared from Britain after the introduction of the 50p top rate of tax, figures have disclosed.
In the 2009-10 tax year, more than 16,000 people declared an annual income of more than £1 million to HM Revenue and Customs.
This number fell to just 6,000 after Gordon Brown introduced the new 50p top rate of income tax shortly before the last general election.
The figures have been seized upon by the Conservatives to claim that increasing the highest rate of tax actually led to a loss in revenues for the Government.
It is believed that rich Britons moved abroad or took steps to avoid paying the new levy by reducing their taxable incomes.
Think Barack Obama and Democrats could learn from this? Hell no, Obama and Democrats can’t even learn from the government overspending and entitlement program fiasco going on in Greece. Instead Obama continues his class warfare and puts forward the myth that taxing the so-called rich is the answer to all of America’s fiscal ills.
Media Bias: CBS 60 Minutes Does Not Air on TV Barack Obama Admitting Mistakes in Campaign Ads … AKA Lying and Presenting Falsehoods against Romney
More Media Bias … Obama admits false ads against Romney and CBS decides not to air the comment on TV …
Could there be any greater example of MSM liberal bias than CBS’s 60 Minutes not airing during tehir TV broadcast that President Barack Obama admitted to mistakes in his campaign ads. UNREAL. CBS in their infinite wisdom and keeping up with being in the tank for Obama never allowed this to air during the TV broadcast, only posting it in line. During the interview Obama admits to … ” “Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made … “. Mistakes made, or purposeful smear campaign Mr. President? But Obama justifies his campaigns deceitful lies because there is a lot at stake. Welcome to Chicago thug style politics. The GOP and Romney best not bring a knife to a political gun fight.
Barack Obama admits false political advertizing, but that’s ok, because you know, there’s a lot at stake in this election.
From the Weekly Standard:
Look, the fact-checkers have had problems with the ads on both sides,” Kroft says to Obama in the unaired clip, “and say they’ve been misleading and in some cases just not true. Does that disturb you? I mean, some of them are your ads.”
Obama responds: “Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made, areas where there is no doubt somebody could dispute how we are presenting things? You know, that happens in politics.”
Kroft responds: “Aren’t the American entitled to the truth? Or a better version of it?”
“The truth of the matter is, most of the time we’re having a vigorous debate about a vision for the country,” Obama says. “And, you know, there’s a lot at stake in this election. So is it going to be sharp sometimes? Absolutely. But will the American people ultimately have a good sense of where I want to take the country and where Gov. Romney takes the country? I think they will.”
What, you mean that Obama and his minions knew that Romney did not help murder a cancer patient, did pay taxes and that the GOP is not out to kill old people and children, harm the air and water and kick granny off the cliff?
Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Says Medicare will help Donkeys win 2012 Majority in House, Because She was So Correct in her 2010 Prediction
Because San Fran Nan has such a great track record of predictions …
Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claimed on CNN that Democrats would take back the House in 2012. Pelosi indicated that Medicare will be the issue that gives her back the Speaker’s gavel. Or should we say Mediscare? Democrats will do everything humanly possible to demonize the Romney/Ryan position on Medicare and the false claims that they want to destroy it.
Even though it was Barack Obama who took $750 billion from Medicare and gave it to Obamacare. However, Pelosi’s claims fall rather flat when you think back and she predicted that Democrats would retain the US House of Representatives after 2010 Midterm elections. How did that work out for ya Nancy?
House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi laughed off the chances of a Mitt Romney presidency, while trumpeting the possibility that Democrats will retake the House of Representatives, during an interview aired Sunday on CNN.
Pelosi, speaking with host Candy Crowley on “State of the Union,” pointed to one issue in particular that she thinks will deliver the House to Democrats: Medicare.
“We have been saying there are three important issues in this campaign. And in alphabetical order, they are Medicare, Medicare, Medicare,” she said.
How sad that Democrats would pit the elderly against the young and frighten seniors with lies. Make no mistake about it America, Medicare/Medicaid needs to be reformed, they are going bankrupt. The Romney/Ryan plan does not affect anyone presently on Medicare or over the age of 55. That being said, Medicare needs major reforms so that it is around for present senior’s children, grand children and great grand children.
Barack Obama’s State of the Union Speech Registers an 8th Grade Reading Level on the Flesch-Kincaid Test … 3rd Lowest SOTU Score Since 1934
Barack Obama, are you smarter than a 8th grader …
Barack Obama has been touted as the smartest President ever. So then why was his 2012 State of the Union speech register an 8th grade reading level on the Flesch-Kincaid readability test? Obama’s 2012 SOTU was the third lowest score since 1934. Obama’s SOTU average grade score of his three speeches is at an amazing 8.4, as compared to the 10.7 average if the previous 67 State of the Union addresses by twelve Presidents. Coincidence, I think not.
The University of Minnesota’s Smart Politics conducted an analysis on the last 70 State of the Union addresses and found that President Obama’s three addresses have the lowest grade average of any modern president. “Obama’s average grade-level score of 8.4 is more than two grades lower than the 10.7 grade average for the other 67 addresses written by his 12 predecessors,” they conclude.
“The Flesch-Kincaid test is designed to assess the readability level of written text, with a formula that translates the score to a U.S. grade level. Longer sentences and sentences utilizing words with more syllables produce higher scores. Shorter sentences and sentences incorporating more monosyllabic words yield lower scores,” the University of Minnesota’s Eric Ostermeier explains.
Obama’s use of simple language is in part a reflection of his audience: the American voter in an election year.
Is this the continued dumbing down of America? Kinda. However, it is telling to who Barack Obama is targeting his speech to. It has to be intentional to make a speech that much more simple than previous Presidents. 2.3 grade levels!!!
Is it any wonder why then that a President that would lower the reading level of a SOTU by so much would also play class warfare? Does anyone think that the targeted Obama speech listener actually takes the time to read and fact check what Obama says, or are they just blindly believing what The One says. I think we know the answer.
Just a note to Conservatives, the Tea Party and Republicans, don’t let any Liberal or Dem tell you that you are stupid. Not when Obama is having speeches targeted to an 8th grade reading level. Those who support Barack Obama should be insulted that the Obamamessiah feels the need to talk down to them. However, instead they will follow him blindly even though though “Hope & Change” was a monumental hoax.
Barack “Wall Street” Obama … Even a broken clock tells the correct time twice a day, Michael Moore calls Obama, Wall Street’s man … “Wall Street Has Their Man And His Name Is Barack Obama”
How bad is it for President Barack Obama? Even far Left lib Michael Moore is stating that Obama is in the pocket of Wall Street. So what to the Occupy Wall Street crowd think when the very individual they should be protesting is their candidate in the White House. How do the so-called 99%’ers justify the fact that Obama is part of the 1% and takes money from the 1%?
From RCP: (VIDEO)
MICHAEL MOORE, ON CNN: Well, “The Washington post” three weeks ago had this investigation and they said that President Obama has now raised more money from Wall Street and the banks for this election cycle than all — than all eight Republicans combined. I don’t want to say that, because if that’s the truth, that Wall Street already has their man and his name is Barack Obama, then we’ve got a much bigger problem.
But I think President Obama, if he were here in the room, the question I would ask him is why are they your number one contributors? Why are you taking this money?
Interesting, even Moore is having an issue trying to justify support for Obama and The One’s actions.
So this is what it has come to from the Obama Administration … how pathetically sick!
Vice President Joe Biden said in Flint, MI that unless you pass Barack Obama’s jobs bill there will be more rapes and murders. The folks who promised you hope and change are now presenting the American people with nothing more than fear and envy. It really does not get any lower than this type of message. Obama/Biden are unelectable and they will say and do anything to remain in power. They certainly cannot run on their record.
“In 2008, when Flint had 265 sworn officers on their police force, there were 35 murders and 91 rapes in this city,” Biden said. “In 2010, when Flint had only 144 police officers, the murder rate climbed to 65 and rapes–just to pick two categories–climbed to 229. In 2011, you now only have 125 shields. God only knows what the numbers will be this year for Flint if we don’t rectify it.”
HUH? As questioned at PJ Media, “I wonder, is there a demonstrable correlation between economic plight and violent crime?” Me thinks the Democrats need to get their talking points straight. Wasn’t it Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (NV-D) who previously stated that men become abusive toward women when they are out of work? One would further suspect that unemployment and terrible economic times would cause more crime as well. Its not that police and firemen don’t have jobs, its the fact that the people don’t have jobs that is causing the crime. Especially when we have a President that participates in class warfare.
Harry Reid then went on to say the following:
“Women don’t have jobs either, but women aren’t abusive, most of the time,” he said.
“Men, when they’re out of work, tend to become abusive,” the majority leader added. “Our domestic crisis shelters in Nevada are jammed.”
One might say that because the Obama administration has preached class warfare and the rich are to blame for the ells of society that they have had a hand in the crime and violence. How about them apples Joe?
RUT-ROH, Obama even sinking in the polls among Blacks.
As President Barack Obama falls in every job approval poll, according to the most recent Gallup poll Obama is at an all time low among blacks. Only 80% of blacks said they approved of Barack Obama’s handling of his job. Yikes, this coming from the Obamamessiah who garnered 95% of the black vote in 2008. How racist, they are against Obama. Oh, wait, they are blacks who now oppose Obama. How will Obama’s minions spin this?
Overall, Gallup has Obama underwater in job approval 40%-53%. Even more concerning for Obama is that only 35% of Independents and 26% of Pure Independents approve of Obama’s job as President. As Weasel Zippers states, there is trouble in paradise.
Meanwhile, only 80 percent of blacks told Gallup in the week that ended on Oct. 9 that they approved of the way Obama was handling his job as president. Previously, Obama’s lowest approval among blacks had been the 81 percent he had received in the weeks that ended on March 6 and August 14 of this year.
Obama’s highest all-time approval among blacks was 96 percent–a level it reached during five different weeks of 2009, Obama’s first year in office.
However, the same poll that shows Obama’s freefall in pretty much every demographic has Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain surging in the polls. Is it any wonder why Democrats, the MSM and liberal blacks are attacking Cain as not being black enough? Cain represents Obama and the Democrats greatest threat. How dare a black man be a Conservative Republican. The LEFT has lost their collective minds and fear Cain as they have gone so far in recent days with Cain’s increasing popularity questioning as to attack Cain that he is not liberal or black enough. UNREAL.
In a poll of 1,064 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents conducted Oct. 3-7, 18 percent said they supported Cain for president. That put the former Godfathers Pizza CEO in a close second behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who placed first with 20 percent.
Herman Cain has become such a threat to Obama and Democrats that the liberal, white, state run media feels the need to attack a black man as not being black enough. WOW. Keep it up MSM, you are helping Cain, not hurting him. Lawrence O’Donnell actually accused Cain of dodging the draft when in fact he actually worked for the Navy. However, in typical liberal MSM fashion … Lawrence O’Donnell actually dodged the draft during Vietnam as he avoided it by attending college. How disrespectful could the MSM possibly be? Keep it up MSM … you are making Herman Cain a super star.
Occupy Wall Street Protesters Like the Tea Party, Eh … Man Deficates on NYC Police Car, Liberal Lies Part 274
So the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters are like the Tea Party, really? Not even close … Oh the hypocrisy.
President Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Democrats and the bias MSM have tried to compare the Leftist/Socialist/Anarchist “Occupy” protester crowd as being like the Tea Party”. Really? This coming after support of the anti-Wall Street crowd from President Obama and Nancy Pelosi. However, if the LEFT thinks that the “Occupy” protesters are like the Tea Party, wouldn’t that mean that the “Occupy Wall Street” folks would be “Nazi’s carrying swastikas”, “Brown Shirts”, “astro-turfers”, “Not-American” , “extremists” and “Evil Mongers”?
Pelosi: “they are independent, young, spontaneous and focused”
However, unlike the demonization that Democrats did when it came to the Tea Party, folks like Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi praised the Wall Street protesters … “God Bless them”. The LEFT claims that the “Occupy” protesters are the counter to the Tea Party, they got that right.
Pelosi said that the Wall Street protesters were young, spontaneous and focused. Huh? The protest has been co-oped by organized labor unions and as for focused, you cannot get a common answer from 5 different people, let alone if they even know why they are protesting. As aptly stated at the Jawa Report, Pelosi’s tag line should have been … “S#it Happens.”
Pic: Daily Mail - Raw sewer: An unidentified man seen defecates on a NYPD patrol car in downtown Manhattan
From the UK Mail comes the following incident and picture of a man defecating on a NYC police car amid the Occupy Wall Street protests.When was the last time you ever saw such a thing occur at a Tea Party rally? The answer, NEVER! Also being reported is the piles of trash and unsanitary conditions that are being created. Another thing you will never hear reported from a Tea Party rally.
This are the shocking scenes that have led some people to accuse the Occupy Wall Street protesters living rough in New York’s financial district of creating unsanitary and filthy conditions.
Exclusive pictures obtained by Mail Online show one demonstrator relieving himself on a police car.
Elsewhere we found piles of stinking refuse clogging Zucotti Park, despite the best efforts of many of the protesters to keep the area clean.
The shocking images demonstrate the extent to which conditions have deteriorated as demonstrations in downtown Manhattan enter their fourth week. Further pictures seen by Mail Online have been censored, as we deemed them too graphic to show.
As discussed at the Lonely Conservative via the New York Times, not all of the protesters are crapping on police cars, some of the protesters are actually using the restrooms of local businesses, after being told by organizers to “feel free to refresh yourself in the restrooms of neighboring businesses like Burger King and McDonald’s without feeling obligated to buy anything.” Huh, two questions, didn’t the LEFT say that because of one perceived racist incident at a Tea Party event, that meant all Tea Party go’ers were racist? Second, how ironic that Wall Street protesters would use bathrooms of the very evil capitalist business that they are supposedly protesting.
UPDATE I: Confirmed … at the Tea Party sponsored event yesterday in Nashville, TN to “Stand Up with Gibson Guitars, there were no reports of any deification incidents on police vehicles.
Not only are liberals like Roseanne Barr insane … its appears she is also viscous and murderous. How foolish is Roseanne Barr, she wants to show children proper morals be not letting the guilty rich get away with murder, by, you guessed it … murdering them. Watch Barr’s insane rant at Real Clear Politics. Hollywood leftists moonbats trying to teach our children about morals, priceless.
“Part of my platform is, of course, the guilty must be punished and that we no longer let our children see their guilty leaders getting away with murder. Because it teaches children, you know, that they don’t have to have any morals as long as they have guns and are bullies and I don’t think that’s a good message,” Barr told Russia Today (RT).
“I do say that I am in favor of the return of the guillotine and that is for the worst of the worst of the guilty.
“I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay, you know, the ability to pay back anything over $100 million [of] personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of $100 million. And if they are unable to live on that amount of that amount then they should, you know, go to the reeducation camps and if that doesn’t help, then being beheaded,” Barr said with a straight face.
More at Strata-Sphere and the prediction that this is just the beginning of the libs losing their minds knowing the pending political losses they face in the not too distant future.
