Is that all? Sigh – it seems like this has been going on forever. Maybe it’s just the MSM’s continued fawning over Obama, like yelling to the rafters what a HIGH poll number he has. Okay, it is more than half, but they are going this nuts over 56%? Seriously??? Wow, I guess it is all about how to spin the outcome.

And that is why I took particular delight in Andy Borowitz’s most recent piece, “Obama Quits While Ahead; Prez Resigns After Hundred Days: “It’s All Downhill From Here.” Oh, if only:

In a move that stunned both political allies and foes alike, President Barack Obama resigned today after serving 100 days in office, telling the White House press corps, “It’s all downhill from here.”

The reporters seemed stunned by the President’s decision in light of the fawning media coverage he received during his first 100 days, but the hyperbolic nature of that reportage, ironically, may have been the prime motivator behind Mr. Obama’s shocking move.

“Let’s face it, I’m not going to get better coverage than I have to date,” he said. “The only guy with a higher approval rating is that dude who landed the plane on the Hudson – or maybe that other dude who escaped from those pirates.”


Click HERE to read the rest – it is pretty funny, especially to see who has higher poll numbers than Obama!

Sigh. I guess it is easy for him to have slightly better than half approval ratings when liberals and progressives ignore: expanded faith-based initiatives, a program we detested under Bush; keeping No Child Left Behind intact, a program we have all widely decried, especially teachers; and Obama’s EXPANSION of warrantless wire-tapping on American citizens. For added irony, here is a video from Keith Olbermann, of all people, on this very thing:

Then there is the attempt to nationalize our banks, firing the CEO of a private company, and the list goes on and on. These are just off the top of my head. I am sure there are more – feel free to add them!

The point is, someone who was inexperienced and unqualified was elected president as the result of the best marketing ploy I have ever seen. His connections to: Tony Rezko; Jeremiah Wright; Bill Ayers; Khalid Rashidi; Kwame Kilpatrick; Louis Farrakhan; and James Meeks, to mention a few, all ignored. Also ignored was his massive contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as was his his dearth of a record, both as an IL state senator and a US senator (or how he got to either one of those positions – getting the qualified people kicked off with the very thinnest of reasons). His sexist behavior, and his homophobic associates, all ignored by the MSM and his followers, people who ordinarily would never give quarter to such a person (and about which I have written extensively here. To find those posts, and other related articles by fellow No Quarter writers on those issues, and Obama’s associates, feel free to do a Search at No Quarter.).

Oh, what might have been. Below are a few very good videos on Hillary Clinton, the one who received the most votes in a Primary EVER, despite being outspent at every turn, and having the MSM expose its Clinton Derangement Syndrome at every turn. Still, STILL, she received the most votes of anyone EVER. That says something, both about her, and about the DNC’s choice to pick Obama over her, for all of their concocted reasons and unethical machinations to make it so. In recognition, then, of Obama’s 100 Days in the White House, I hope these will bring a smile to your face (though they also brought tears to my eyes):

  • b mathews

    i read on another website (forgot which)that mechele left the european apology tour early and cancelled going to south america at the last minute. not a word about it from the msm (NO BIG SURPRISE THERE). they also said there is trouble in the duos marriage. anyone else hear anything about this?

  • It’s impossible to not watch those videos, and get all teary eyed. It was an emotional primary. It was so exciting to see Hillary, a woman, do what she did. She is so witty and fast on her feet too. I love that line she said in the debate that Bill was not standing there now.

    This is what Obama said about his firt 100 days “That wasn’t me.”

    “That wasn’t me,” President Barack Obama said on his 100th day in office, disclaiming responsibility for the huge budget deficit waiting for him on Day One.

    It actually was partly him — and the other Democrats controlling Congress the previous two years — who shaped the latest in a string of precipitously out-of-balance budgets.

    And as a presidential candidate and president-elect, he backed the twilight Bush-era stimulus plan that made the deficit deeper, all before he took over and promoted spending plans that have made it much deeper still.

    100 days in, and he is still blaming Bush….

    Oh, what could have been.

    (great post! thanks for the memories!)

    • Thanks, Sara!

      And what did we learn abt that Tim Russert question? He COMPLETELY misrepresented what Pres. Clinton said. And he did that solely to try and embarrass Hillary.

      Indeed, what should have been.

      I’m going to go watch the videos Eastan and JustMe put up, and think of a good prayer we could use… 😀

  • CG

    I kind of liked this part of Borowitz

    As the press corps reeled from the news of Mr. Obama’s resignation, one White House source suggested that the First Lady may have been behind the decision: “Around Day 95 or so, Michelle was running out of wardrobe changes.”

    At the Supreme Court, Chief Justice John Roberts said that he stood ready to swear in the nation’s new chief executive, whom he called “President Biden R. Joseph.”

    Mr. Biden is scheduled to deliver his Inaugural address on Friday at noon and wrap it up sometime late Sunday.

    Now that’s some long speech for a guy that likes to talk.

    Thanks RRRAmy for the always appreciated reminders of the brilliant Hillary. She would have been a better president by far. There wouldn’t be a TOTUS website either.

    Chris Matthews and Jack Cafferty may think Michelle is hot and knows her place, but she (and Barack) will never measure up to Hillary, ever. Imagine, if you will, Michelle being grilled by members of Congress as Hillary was recently — lawdy, my, my…

    i forced myself to watch the video’s. So many good memories that feel so wasted. I don’t hear anyone saying ‘obama is going to bring these jobs back.’ i really feel that all these jobs wouldn’t be so large each week had hillary been given her rightful title. no business men had faith in obama and they started cutting jobs at the same time the world was getting hit with oil prices.

    I am so sick of Obama! Are you sure it hasn’t been something like 100,000,000 days? It kind of seems like it. I’m so weary. He’s really over stayed his welcome (not that I ever welcomed him).

    • Yes! Good God. Every day he pops up. I swear the only reason for that must be to keep subliminal hypnosis current for his bots. Each day when I hear he’s coming on, I keep the remote by my side…at the ready to switch to the home channel. A sense of dread takes over followed by revulsion. Click. Just like W.

    I hear that in his typical arrogant self, especiallly when feeling pressure, he slipped the truth out again and declared he was “Remaking America”.

    Are the voters going to reply, WHO TOLD YOU TO? Didn’t he campaign on America’s values? Why does it always seem like he is the outsider that maneuvered his way in to “America’s Government to remake it”?

  • bone

    Is that all you got to complain about. All complete BS and meaningless given what Obama has accomplished in only the first three months.

    You harp on the same old stuff. Very boring.

    Your argument is very weak.

    What Obama has done in terms of turning this country in a different direction is stunning and quite remarkable.

    It is unfortnuate that you and your NQbots complain about everything and see nothing good about where the country is now heading, but too bad, you represent a very small minority. You are basically just sore losers.

    What Obama has done for women alone in only a few months is stunning. I am sure you thinkk you know better than one of the pioneers of fighting for woman in the country, but again you would be wrong.

    “Obama’s First 100 Days: Giant Strides for Women” by
    Eleanor Smeal

    (President of The Feminist Majority Foundation and Publisher of Ms. magazine)
    By any measure, the work President Obama and his team have accomplished for women and girls in the first 100 days is impressive. They not only have reversed some of the most egregious Bush policies, but also have taken some powerful actions to advance and empower women.

    I’ve been working for women’s rights in Washington, D.C. since the Carter days and I have never seen anything like these first days. The pace is fast, and the outreach is inclusive. It started during the transition: The Obama/Biden team reached out to women’s leaders and met with us on a whole host of issues frequently and at high levels. And it has continued.

    In the current issue of Ms., which will hit newsstands next week, the editors have compiled a list of the major Obama achievements thus far vis-à-vis women’s issues, and it bears repeating–see below. In reviewing this list, it’s amazing how fast we are checking off as done major goals we have been working toward for several years. We still have a long to-do list–the damage of the Bush years was massive, and we have to remedy it while moving forward. But we are going in the right direction with all deliberative speed.

    One area of concern that should be noted, however, is the percentage of women in top jobs. We must keep pushing. According to the Washington Post’s appointment tracking database, women thus far number only 30% of appointments to positions needing Senate confirmation. But very encouragingly, appointments include a high percentage of people of color and include many outstanding feminists.

    Savor the beginning of what promises to be a long list of Obama achievements for women:

    JAN 23: President Obama overturns the “global gag rule,” a move that will literally save countless women’s lives in developing nations and will lead to the U.S. re-funding many international family-planning programs

    JAN 29: Obama signs the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, restoring women’s ability to sue for pay discrimination

    FEB 4: Obama signs act to expand the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) to cover 11 million children–Bush had vetoed this act twice

    FEB 17: Obama’s economic stimulus package saves and creates jobs not only in construction, where men dominate, but in fields where women workers are the substantial majority–health care, child care and education; also increases Medicaid, food stamps and unemployment benefits

    FEB 27: Obama moves to rescind the Bush administration’s “conscience” clause, which could have let health-care workers deny patients abortion, contraception or any other procedure they objected to

    MAR 2: With the choice of Kathleen Sebelius as Health and Human Services secretary, Obama appoints a total of seven women to Cabinet-level positions

    MAR 6 : Obama institutes a new ambassador-at-large for global women’s issues and names Melanne Verveer to the post

    MAR 9: Obama lifts restrictions on stem-cell research

    MAR 11: Obama establishes the White House Council on Women and Girls and names senior adviser Valerie Jarrett as chair and director of public liaison Tina Tchen as executive director

    Omnibus Spending Act restarts U.S. contributions to the United Nations Population Fund (which the Bush administration had blocked for eight years) and reinstates low-cost birth control availability at college health centers and at some 400 clinics serving low-income women

    MAR 19: Obama pledges to sign a U.N. declaration to decriminalize homosexuality, which Bush had refused to sign

    MAR 20: Obama appointee Elena Kagan is confirmed as the first woman Solicitor General
    APR 3: Obama calls Afghanistan’s proposed Shia Family Law–which would permit marital rape–“abhorrent,” helping to lead Afghan President Hamid Karzai to review the law

    APR 23 The FDA extends Plan B availability to 17-year-olds–something highly unlikely to have happened under Bush

      You know, I think it is great that the President has done these things, truly, but surely you also must recognize that these were part of the Dems agenda for quite some time. It would be very hard to believe that any Dem. President would not have pushed through things that Pr. Bush vetoed in the past. Are you really trying to tell us that Hillary would not have done all this and possibly more in her first 100 days.

      Why is it that women always have to bow down and thank everyone for rights they should have in the damned first place. Surely Dems were chafing at the bit to do this stuff. No?

    Only 7 swine flu deaths around world, not 152, says WHO

    April 29, 2009
    The Sydney Morning Herald

    A member of the World Health Organisation (WHO) has dismissed claims that more than 150 people have died from swine flu, saying it has officially recorded only seven deaths around the world.

    Vivienne Allan, from WHO’s patient safety program, said the body had confirmed that worldwide there had been just seven deaths – all in Mexico – and 79 confirmed cases of the disease.

    “Unfortunately that [150-plus deaths] is incorrect information and it does happen, but that’s not information that’s come from the World Health Organisation,” Ms Allan told ABC Radio today.

    “That figure is not a figure that’s come from the World Health Organisation and, I repeat, the death toll is seven and they are all from Mexico.”

    Ms Allan said WHO had confirmed 40 cases of swine flu in the Americas, 26 in Mexico, six in Canada, two in Spain, two in Britain and three in New Zealand.

    Ms Allan said it was difficult to measure how fast the virus was spreading.

    She said a real concern would be if the flu virus manifested in a country where a person had had no contact with Mexico, and authorities were watching all countries for signs of that.

    “There is no pattern that has emerged at this stage to be able to say that it is spreading in a particular way or it is spreading into a particular country … the situation is continuing to evolve,” she said.

    She said the WHO was not recommending against overseas travel, but urged those who felt sick to stay home and others to ensure they kept their hands clean.

    No decision had yet been made about vaccinations.

    “This virus is not airborne, it’s caused by droplets … so it’s not a time for worry. It’s a time to be prepared,” Ms Allan said.

  • bayareavoter

    From Borowitz’s lips to God’s ears, as the saying goes. We should be so lucky.

    As a lifelong Dem I it makes me crazy that I can’t celebrate the Dem majority with a Dem in the WH–instead I worry about how we’re getting royally shafted. And robbed. I am no longer a Democrat. And I do wonder sometimes where we’d be with Hillary in the WH.

    You list all of the things that ticked me off about this empty suit getting nominated and elected. And all the programs the so-called left like to ignore like that faith-based initiative on steroids led by a 26 yr old know-nothing (like the guys Bush sent to the Green Zone).

    Thank goodness for NQ and the sanity of the writers! Hear, hear!

    We may well be better off if we simply subcontract the operation of the Executive Branch to Aaron Sorkin. Let him script it and fill the West Wing with actors.

    Jimmy Smits and the late John SPencer wouldn’t have screwed the pooch this thoroughly.

    • b mathews

      i’ve been watching reruns of the West Wing and im amazed at how much it parallels (right down to the spoken word)things said and done by 0bama and his cronies. its almost like they copied much of what was said and done on the show. then again this whole farce of an administration is like a bad reality show that needs to be cancelled..and soon.

    Hillary always brings a smile — the smartest work horse out there, not a show horse. Thanks for this, Amy.

    I am so thankful that I kicked the TV habit — so I don’t have to watch that 0zero — nor listen to him.

    • Oh – least I forget — WELCOME back Rev! You were missed.

      • Thanks so much, NW Rain – I appreciate that! I missed reading the posts by my fellow writers, and your comments, too!

        Oh, wow – can you imagine if Aaron Sorkin wrote the WH scripts? Could we PLEASE have Allison Janney reprise her role as WH Press Secretary???

        And thanks, Ani – you are absolutely right. Hillary just does the work. When she says we are not invisible to her, I believe her. Yet another reason her NOT being in the WH is so painful. She really cares about us.

        Along those lines, an old friend from my seminary days was visiting recently. She has a family member who went to church with Hillary Clinton. She said that she really is as thoughtful, kind, gracious, warm, intelligent, and FUNNY, as she seems to be. That warmed my heart…

        • Ani

          Amy, how great to hear that about your friend’s experience wih Hill.

        • FranSC

          Thanks, Rev Amy for the videos altho they still cause me excrusiating pain – pain that we absolutely should not be having. Instead, we should by all rights be celebrating Hillary’s first 100 days as POTUS and not this illigitimate, fraud that was forced upon us by none other than the dem party leadership.

          Their job historically has been to stay neutral, protect the system and voters to preserve our fundamental right of one person, one vote. We could always count on these leaders for fairness, honesty, integrity and neutrality. Instead, a group of Charlatons invaded the process who were willing to shoot to kill if necessary to win and win THEIR way. They might as well have been using asault weapons. The results were the same.

          • Well said, Fran. And you are absolutely right, too. Many of us suspected this was a done deal from the beginning, and Reid has pretty much confirmed that…

            Ani, my pleasure! Another close friend of mine in NY had the opportunity to meet Hillary as a result of her job (art, not politics), and said she is every bit as wonderful as she seems to be. She was present, asked lots of good questions, and was very nice.

            Dang, I wish she was my prez. And Fran, no doubt she SHOULD have been
