Delusional DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Says President Obama is in “Remarkably Good Shape” Politically … Compares GOP Candidates to Legos
SHE SAID WHAT?
DNC Chair and US Rep (FL-D) Debbie Wasserman Schultz made the unbelievable comment this morning on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ that President Barack Obama was in “remarkably good shape” politically. Really Debbie, really? How can these individuals make such comments and keep a straight face? She then went on to make the disparaging comment regarding the GOP candidates that they were like interchangeable “Legos’. The delusional DNC Chair must have missed the most recent Gallup poll that had Obama at 39% job approval rating. It would also appear that Debbie missed the CNN poll that indicates that Barack Obama is down 11% with Democrats support for Obama’s re-nomination. This is how the DNC Chair defines in good shape politically? Incumbent Presidents are usually a sure fire lock for renomination, except if you are, hold, hold … Jimmy Carter. With 15 months to go before the 2012 election Barack Obama’s numbers are trending downward with Democrats. GOOD SHAPE INDEED.
DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., said on Sunday that President Obama is in “remarkably good shape” politically — and that if anyone has a political problem, it’s Republicans. The GOP presidential field, she contended, is full of candidates so interchangeable they might as well be “Legos.”
Wasserman Schultz, in an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” argued that despite what appears to be a significant drop in approval ratings, Mr. Obama is doing well.
A note to Debbie Wasserman Schultz, I would rather be “Legos” than “Silly Puddy”. She also went on to play the lack of responsibility card and reference the economy that Obama inherited. Wasn’t it Wasserman Schultz who said in the past that the Democrats own the economy? I guess the Democrats have changed that talking point.
“The president is in actually remarkably good shape, given that he is still struggling to help pull our economy out of the Republican — the Republican recession that he inherited. His numbers are still strong. He still has widespread support. If anyone is in trouble, it’s the Republican Party,” she said.
President Barack Obama is a joke … Lost in Smallness, Part 102.
Barack Obama, the serious President once again shows the only thing that he is good at … being the “Clown Prince” in chief and attacking his rivals by making jokes. Isn’t it just amazing that the individual who said he wanted to put an end to the “birth certificate” story, is the only one still talking about it. How appropriate though that Obama play as his official birth video footage of the ‘Lion King’ because we all know that Barack Hussein Obama is the LYING KING!
As Obama made jokes and attacked Donald Trump, who was in the audience, Fox News and any rival, he went on to say the following. Isn’t it interesting that Obama just can’t let the birther story go.
“Donald Trump is here tonight,” said Obama. “Now, I know that he’s taken some flak lately but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald. And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter, like, ‘Did we fake the moon landing?’ ‘What really happened in Roswell?’ And ‘Where are Biggie and Tupac?’”
Not to be out done, LEFTY Seth Meyers of SNL went after Trump in what might not be considered humor. One question, I wonder how the thin skinned Barack Obama would have handled these attacks?
But Obama was downright polite compared with Meyers, who zeroed in on The Donald.
Trump “said he’s running as a Republican,” said Meyers. “Which is surprising: I just assumed he was running as a joke.”
It didn’t stop there. Trump “often appears on Fox,” said Meyers, which is funny “because a fox often appears on Donald Trump’s head.”
Barack Obama: The Lying King
It is simply unbelievable that Barack Obama has reduced the Presidency to a stand up comedy act. This President is so small, so thin skinned, that he refreshes the opportunity to go after his political adversaries as his like the Left Coast Rebel states, he was in high school. I agree 100% with the LCR’s analysis that Obama is so insecure and such a complete and total failure as President that he must attack other to make himself feel better.
Obama’s petulance highlights a man not comfortable in his own skin; someone that has never had to face criticism of any kind; a petulant man that tripped and stumbled into the presidency and has no clue what the hell he is doing.
Seriously, I’m no Trump fan but addressing him directly like this? So weird and Dear Leader-esque.
Seriously, how sad is it that Obama is only comfortable when he is cracking jokes at other expense? Mr. President, no one is laughing in the South where there are 300+ dead after the deadly tornadoes swept through this week, no one is laughing at the $5 – $6 a gallon cost of gas, no one is laughing at the continued loss in value of the US dollar, no one is laughing at the continued out of control government spending and national debt. No one is laughing at the rising cost of goods and inflation.
To make matters even more puzzling for “The Chosen One”, who provides Trump with more PR as a form of punishing them? As stated at InstaPundit, why would anyone make a rival bigger who obviously made serious inroads and dented the armor of Obama. The One would never have provided his long form birth certificate had it not been damaging Obama in the polls. And like a complete novice, Obama fell for the bait.
No one is laughing that Americans think that the United States is in a recession!
WHAT A JOKE THIS PRESIDENT IS … 2012 CANNOT COME FAST ENOUGH.
More Lack of Presidential Sacrifice: Barack Obama Takes 20 Man, 10 Car Motorcade to visit childhood friend in Hawaii
President Barack Obama once again shows Americans what it means to sacrifice, NOT! How is any one supposed to follow this president when he does not sacrifice himself? If one cannot lead by example, they cannot lead.
I wonder what the little people are doing
Once again Barack Obama shows a lack of leadership and failure to set an example for the American people. The do as I say, not as I do president thought it perfectly ok to spend “The People’s money” and have a 10 vehicle, 20 man motorcade, across highways cleared of traffic to reach his childhood friend Bobby Titcomb’sbeachfront house. What? Who does this? How does a president in the midst of a terrible economy who tells others to sacrifice continue to fail to set an example and just tell the people to “eat cake”. Then again, who spends $1.4 million on a vacation in a recession? Obama learned so much from last year. Face it America, he just does not care.
Obama tells Stephanopoulos everyone must sacrifice … “everyone is going to have to sacrifice and have skin in the game”
Far be it from this president to sacrifice and think about not spending the tax payers money and just have invited his friend to where Obama was staying. Because that would just make too much sense. If that occurred Obama could not inconvenience every one with his motorcade and waste tax payers dollars, After all, he’s not spending his money.
President Obama provoked fresh outrage today after taking a 20-man motorcade to visit a childhood friend during his lavish Christmas holiday in Hawaii.
As Americans Struggle with 9.8% Unemployment, Obama & Family on Multi-Million Dollar Christmas Vacation in Hawaii
While Americans struggle, Obama and the first family are living La Vita Loca on vacation in Hawaii spending millions … Its good to be King.
Everybody must sacrifice and have skin in the games, except Barack Hussein Obama
Nobody questions a president’s right or need to take take away from the White House, but there is something just inherently wrong with a president spending millions on an extended vacation while millions of individuals are unemployed, people continue to lose their homes, record number of individuals and families are on food stamps and “We the People” are faced with 9.8% unemployment. How is it that no WH aide says to Obama … “dude, this just ain’t right”.
There is something just not quite right with the look and the example that this displays to the country. The fact that President Obama sees no issue with spending millions on an over the top vacation while so many struggle to provide common necessities to their families is disturbing. This president is out of touch with the American plight and seems to just not care. Obama can claim he is for the working man by extending unemployment to the 99′ers, he can claim he is for the middle class by extending the Bush era tax cuts; however, the perception of this president vacationing in the lap of luxury while the lapdog MSM are more concerned with shirtless Obama pics than the “just plain wrong”vision of living life and vacationing to the utmost as America suffers.
A president should set an example and have a clue as to what the mood of a country is. How is it that our government tells us to sacrifice and that because of the spending of politicians that all citizens will have to suffer with debt reduction … why does Obama not have to limit himself and have some pain as well? Obama acts as if every one else owes him a living, a vacation and golf. Where is his sacrifice? How is it that this president who claims he is for the people, has never done one thing to show Americans that he “feels their pain?” Instead, time after time, he is out playing golf or his wife is off on gala lavish vacations.
9.6% Unemployment & Democrat Party in Shambles Before the 2010 Midterms … Obama Plays Golf for the 52nd Time
NERO OBMAMA plays his fiddle again …
The unemployment national rate is at 9.6%, 95,000 people lost jobs last month, 41.8 million Americans are on food stamps, the US has record federal debt like never before, jobless rate above 9.5% for the 14th straight month, no confidence in the economy, Democrats stand to most likely lose the US House of Representatives, a majority of Governorships and could likely lose control of the US Senate.
Nero Obama goes golfing for the 52nd time since he became President.
President Obama hit the golf course Saturday for what, by CBS News’ Mark Knoller’s calculation, was his 52nd such outing since taking office.
According to the White House pool report, Obama went golfing Saturday with his usual partners: trip director Marvin Nicholson, press aide Ben Finkenbinder and the Department of Energy’s David Katz.
Don’t fret though, the Barack has got it all covered. Stating that the economy is headed in the right direction, under his method of creating jobs all the lost jobs won’t be recovered until 2020. Relax America, the Obama has got it covered. If he can play the fiddle golf like Nero, why should you worry America?
It is rather telling that with 24 days to go before an election and with the 100′s of Senate, House and Governor races up for reelection this year that the President has time to play golf. One would think that he would be wanted for political campaign appearances every day from now until the 2010 election on November 2. Looks like due to his toxicity, he has more time for golf than ever before.
Democrats cannot help themselves, they think American voters are ignorant and say it.
John Kerry, the liberal, blue blood US Senator from Massachusetts proves exactly why the American voters have had it with Democrats and are about to throw them out of office this November. Democrats with overwhelming majorities in the US House of Representatives and the US Senate have listened little to the American voters and have crammed unpopular legislation down the throats of the American people. Now, with the voters angered, John Kerry calls them uniformed. Nice job Senator Kerry, calling the voters stupid. Way to ingratiate yourself to an already upset electorate.
Kerry says … The Little People are just to uninformed to understand
A testy U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle beleaguered Democrats are facing against Republicans across the nation.
“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday.
More bad economic news from Obama’s minions and then would not even commit to an answer …
More non-encouraging news from the Obama Administration, Austan Goolsbee, the new chairman of the Council of Economic Affairs (CEA) said on FNS that the unemployment rate would not be coming down any time soon. To make matters even worse, on ABC’s ‘This Week’ broadcast Sept. 12, 2010, Goolsbee would not say how many jobs would be created by the $50 billion second stimulus plan.
President Obama’s new chairman of the Council of Economic Affairs (CEA) said Sunday that the national unemployment rate will not decrease significantly anytime soon.
Austan Goolsbee, who Obama announced on Friday will replace Christina Romer as head of the CEA, told “Fox News Sunday” that the president is doing all he can to help the economy, but the recession was so deep, it will take some time for employment numbers to recover.
“I don’t think the unemployment rate will be coming down significantly at any time in the near future,” Goolsbee said.
Unemployment for the nation reached 9.6 percent in August, and Goolsbee and other White House officials regularly concede they expect it to get worse before it gets better.
Is it any wonder why in the most recent Rasmussen poll, 48% of American voters gave Barack Obama poor marks on the economy. Just the other day an AP poll showed that Obama was at an all time low at 41% in handling the economy. Thus the reason why Obama’s job approval rating is like most people’s mortgages …. underwater.
But 48% of voters still say the president is doing a poor job when it comes to handling the economy, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Thirty-six percent (36%) rate the president’s performance on the economic front as good or excellent.
With unemployment not coming down anytime soon, look for Democrats to get hammered in the 2010 midterm elections. It’s pretty bad when ahead of the election the WH feels the need to put out there that there is no job relief coming any time soon in the foreseeable future. Imagine just how bad the job numbers really are?
The Liberal Left MSM Race-Baiters Just Cant Help Themself … Cynthia Tucker, “Voter Anger is About Racism, Fear of a White Minority”
Welcome to racial tolerance in the Barack Obama Presidency … How many times will the LEFT play the same, tired race card? Desperate acts from a desperate party who have nothing else than to call Americans racists.
So many people thought that by electing the first black President of the United States, race relations would move in the right directions. Not when you have the liberal MSM race-baitors throwing gas on the fire at every opportunity. Shame on these people for creating further friction and a racial divide in the United States.
Cynthia Tucker on The Chris Matthews Show stated that it was racism that threatened the Democrat majority in the House and the Senate. Unreal. This is the type of rhetoric that the LEFT uses when Americans reject their socialist failing agenda.
“We haven’t talked about the elephant in the room, and I don’t mean the Republicans: race. Changing demographics. Fear of a white minority.”
Face it America, the moonbat LEFT thinks you are a racist if you are against President Barack Hussein Obama’s extreme socialist policies. You are a racist if you are against fiscal responsibility. You are a racist if you are against Obamacare and the government take over of health care from crib to coffin. You are a racist if you are against the rule of law, protecting our borders and illegal immigration. You are a racist if you are for the compassion of 9-11 families, the questioning of wherehundreds of millions of dollars are coming from and the building of a mosque mere blocks from where nearly 3000 innocent people lost their lives.
Voter Anger Is About Racism – ‘Fear of a White Minority’
Transcript from NewsBusters:
CYNTHIA TUCKER, ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION: Well I think it may help the Democrats in some races this time, Chris, because some of the Tea Party candidates are so extreme. But there is another issue. There is, as Norah said, a whole lot of voter anger, discontent out there. We haven’t talked about the elephant in the room, and I don’t mean the Republicans: race. Changing demographics. Fear of a white minority.
CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: That’s so interesting.
TUCKER: Obama’s election has suddenly made many white Americans aware of the loss of a white majority.
MATTHEWS: That’s so interesting.
TUCKER: That’s what this crazy summer has been all about. Anti-mosque construction. Anti-immigrant ravings. It, that fear is very difficult for Obama to overcome.
Ms Tucker, was it not ‘white” America who elected Barack Obama and the Democrats? According to CNN 2008 Presidential election polls 43% of whites voted for Barack Obama as opposed to the 41% of whites who voted for Democrat John Kerry in 2004. Better yet, following Obama’s election all polls showed that his popularity was through the roof. Rasmussen had Obama job approval the day “The One” took office on January 20, 2009 at 67% and a +25 Presidential Index rating. Gallup had Obama at 68% – 21% job approval on January 21, 2009.
But some how in 19 short months white America became racist. That’s it, you brilliant race baiter on the LEFT. The fact that Democrats are scrambling for their political lives could not be because President Obama promised that his $787 billion stimulus package would hold unemployment at 8% and we are presently at 9.6% and rising, while underemployment is at 18.6%?It couldn’t be that Obama and the Democrats focused on Obamacare and the government take over of health care in the US for months and montHs against the will of the people? Instead of focusing on creating a positive job environment for business, Democrats rammed Obama care down the throats of Americans. To the point where a 58% to 36% margin are in favor of repealing Obamacare.
Americans saw a lack of urgency and leadership from Obama in handling the BP oil spill. So much so that Americans actually view former President GWB as doing a better job with Hurricane Katrina than Obama did in handling the aftermath of the oil spill in the Gulf.
Racism is not the root cause as to what has caused the Democrats plight and their fear of losing both the House and Senate in 2010 and the Presidency in 2012. Americans have discovered what the real meaning of Obama’s “Hope & Change” is and they do not like it. On every major issue of the day, Obama and Democrats have taken the side against the majority of the American people. What did they think was going to happen?
However, for race-baiting and desperate liberals all they have left on the LEFT is to call you racists. Hardly a winning strategy. Get ready for the new bumper stickers … “YOU ARE RACIST UNLESS YOU SUPPORT OBAMA”
Let’s just make one thing perfectly clear …. BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, YOU ARE NO RONALD WILSON REAGAN!
The MSM just will not stop making excuses, comparisons or carrying the water for Barack Hussein Obama. Their constant reference that Obama is Lincolnesque or comparable to Ronald Reagan is laughable. Obama is neither the “Great Communicator” nor is he the fantastic orator that the MSM makes him out to be. However, the WAPO once again feels the need to justify and make excuses for Barack Obama, ‘Reagan’s first term offers measuring stick for Obama’.
“Government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem”. (Ronald Reagan)
Obama’s presidency has looked like Reagan’s in some broad ways. Both men succeeded unpopular presidents of the opposite party. Both offered big and bold plans — Reagan with massive tax cuts, Obama with a massive stimulus package and national health care — that set the country in a new direction. Reagan’s goal was to shrink government. Obama’s efforts have enlarged government.
Both presidents were forced by events that preceded their elections to contend with economies in serious trouble. Both saw the unemployment rate rise sharply during their first two years in office — under Reagan, the rate hit 10.8 percent by November 1982 — and both saw their approval ratings decline as the numbers of jobless grew.
For much of this year, Obama and his team have taken some solace from the fact that Reagan’s approval ratings were even lower at comparable points in his presidency. That is no longer the case. In the past week, Obama has hit a new low in his approval rating, according to Gallup’s daily tracking. It now stands at 42 percent, virtually identical to Reagan’s in August 1982. (Both Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter dipped below 40 percent during their second year in office.)
Let’s get a couple thing straight that the MSM refuses to acknowledge. One, Reagan became President following Jimmy Carter with double digit, unemployment, inflation and interest rates. Two, gas prices were through the roof as odd-even rationing existed. Three, the Soviet Union was in Afghanistan and the hostages were just released from Iran. Four and most importantly, Democrats controlled the House of Representatives during Reagan’s first term in office. Also do not forget what happened when Reagan was sworn into office, the US hostages being held captive in Iran were formally released into United States custody the following day, just minutes after the new American president Ronald Reagan was sworn in.
However, here are the biggest differences between the two Presidents where Obama should never be referenced in the same sentence as Ronald Wilson Reagan. Just because a President is a disaster in the polls does not make them Reagan-like.
- Ronald Reagan was trusted by the American people, Barack Hussein Obama is not.
- Ronald Reagan spoke of promise and a brighter future and that America was a “shining city on the hill”. Obama does nothing but makes apologies for America.
- Reagan empowered people, Obama provides them record food stamps.
- Reagan did what he said and said what he did, Obama through a lack of promised transparency shoved unpopular policies and programs like the stimulus and Obamacare down the throats of Americans.
- Reagan spoke directly and connected with the American people, Obama lectures the American people.
- Reagan brought people together and created the coalition of the “Reagan Democrats”, Obama has become the most polarizing President in history.
- Reagan was a capitalist, Obama is a big government socialist.
How can you compare two President like Obama and Reagan when they are polar-opposites? Obama is in fact the anti-Reagan. Reagan believed in cutting taxes which lead to one of the greatest economic prosperous periods ever. Obama believe in government spending, raising taxes and being anti-business. We are comparing the two how again?
Also and most importantly, Ronald Regan believed that government was the problem, not the solution. Obama believes that “big government” and the nanny state is the answer to all of societies ills.
Make no mistake about it, Obama, you are no Ronald Reagan, you are not even close. Obama’s Presidency will go down as one of the worst in US history, rivaling Carter’s. We can only hope that we have a country left to fix and that we can undo the damage that Obama and his extremist Democrats have brought upon the USA.
America, are you feeling stimulated yet?
As President Barack Hussein Obama parades out across the United States touting that the economy is headed in the right direction and his stimulus plan has been a success, We the People know the truth. As reported in The Hill, since the Obama stimulus was passed 48 out of 50 states have lost jobs. Of course the unemployment rate is also as 9.5%, a much different amount than the “dumb” 8% that was predicted and promised by the Obama Administration. Obama’s “Summer of job Recovery” has been a microcosm of his Presidency … all talk and no productive results for America.
Hat Tip – Vanderbilt ’10
A cigarette break is very relaxing for
a gentleman that is working so hard
around the clock spending our money
(and our grand children’s future) for us.
House Ways and Means ranking member Dave Camp (R-Mich.) on Friday released data complied by his office that shows 48 out of 50 states have lost jobs since the February 2009 enactment of the economic stimulus bill.
“While Democrats promised their 2009 stimulus would create 3.7 million jobs, the reality is far different,” stated a release from Camp’s office. “To date, 2.6 million jobs, including 2.5 million private sector jobs, have been lost.”
According to the report, only Alaska and North Dakota have experienced positive job growth since early 2009. The District of Columbia also saw an increase in hiring during that period.
The report from Camp came on the heels of a Labor Department report on Thursday that showed jobless claims increased last week to 500,000, up 12,000 from the week’s prior total of 488,000.
This graph will come back to bite Obama & Democrats in 2010 & 2012 elections
With the economy being the #1 issue for Americans prior to the 2010 midterm elections and Obama and his Democrat minions failing miserably, look for the voters to voice their disapproval at the ballot boxes with their 41% approval – 56% disapproval with the economy.
