Obama, Middle Class Grave Digger

* Bumped Up *

UPDATE: THIS TIME, NEXT WEEK, GUESS WHAT WE’LL BE DOING on October 11th? That’s next Thursday. The countdown begins … Paul Ryan is watching his wife sew the kids’ Halloween costumes, and all he can think about are those tricks and treats that await him. (Sorry honey, sorry kids.) We wait and wait … Damn, but there are lots of treats for all the good boys and girls. You too, Janna Little Ryan and Miss Liza, Master Charles, and Master Sam, who nobody ever talks about or asks for their names. (Might that be because the MSM never feature Ryan’s beautiful family?) … Bronwyn, who’s hopin’ the kids get to have a Shirley Temple and a Roy Rogers after the debate, or am I dating myself?)

____________________________________

Leave it to Honest Joe Biden to portray Barack Obama as a 21st century version of an Edgar Allen Poe villain–Barack Obama burying middle class people alive:

Yes, let’s give Joe credit for at least one thing. He knows a true disaster when he sees it.

Obama cannot afford to run on his record. His economy sucks:

Tonight will be fascinating, especially if the issue of Obamacare comes up. Romney will be able to take Obama apart on this piece by piece. He is better prepared substantively to discuss the matter than Obama is.

Bring it on.

    “Shows like Sesame Street are thriving, multimillion-dollar enterprises,” DeMint wrote. “According to the 990 tax form all nonprofits are required to file, Sesame Workshop President and CEO Gary Knell received $956,513 — nearly a million dollars — in compensation in 2008. And, from 2003 to 2006, Sesame Street made more than $211 million from toy and consumer product sales. Big Bird will be just fine without his federal subsidies.” Sen. Jim Demint

  • I_cant_take_this

    I am so upset…Americans don’t seem to be moved by Romneys incredible performance. How could one not be impressed with a smart, quick witted, experienced and decent man? Since when are men like that made fun of and disparaged. How have become only inspired with bratty little boys like Obaby–with an angry, LAZY, stupid, furtive, divisive, despotic, vindictive and arrogant character? He screws up everything he touches.

    The world is burning and extremely dangerous. A nuke could land on our heads at any moment and no one cares. Again, americans have become zombies in the truest sense…Obaby could be caught on tape being an ax murderer and no one would care!! Am I in a parallel universe or something? What have we become? I’m starting to think that God has begun our punishment (and no I am not a radical nut) and I’m truly afraid.

    I think we can thank the “leftist” education systems and brainwashing institututions that almost all of us have been subjected to over the past 50 years. The plan in complete and now comes their so longed for collapse of our Country. Some of you, like Larry Johnson, have woken up a bid to what half the country has been railing about for so long and perhaps now see the errors in the beliefs you held but its too late to do anything about it. I wish you guys would have woken up earlier.
    I am so hopeless and have such a sense of doom, I can’t take it any more.

        Helen: This is a huge scandal that will unfold.

        For this kind of a drop would have required 600 or 800 thousand new jobs just in September and at a time when the actual news jobs report did not even keep up with popultion.

        This on Breitbart now:

        http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/10/05/Suspicion-Falls-on-Labor-Secretary-Solis-as-Jobs-Numbers-Questioned

        Labor Secretary Solis will be on the hot seat for this. They fudged numbers to try and get an edge thiinking that the media would help them. But numbers cannot lie.

        Once these part time numbers are adjusted correctly it will be at or after election day and will show unemployment at or highter than 8.1%

        • HELENK2

          are farm jobs counted?? it is harvest time. how about part time jobs??

          I am just trying to figure what the backtrack bunch will try to use to justify the magic numbers

          • Hokma

            It includes those farm jobs as well as parti time help like nannies. But 600 ot 800 thousand jobs?

            I was listening to Charles Payne Os Fox Business and cannot even explain how they are going to be able to rationalize even the fudging they had to do. Basically it was made up to get the unemployment rate down to 7.8%

            Now why 7.8%? Because the unemployment rate was at 7.9% when Obama came into office.

            • KenoshaMarge

              I love Charles Payne! He tells it like it is and he knows his stuff.

          • beachnan

            Apparently these false job report numbers are based on phone calls made to households and they only called 60,000 households. This is what Lou Dobbs told Megan Kelly. This is utterly ridiculous. I do like the way that Romney put it. It’s a shame
            that the number comes down because more people have given up entirely. I hope this fake, phoney, unbelievable number comes back to bite them in the ass.

        • KenoshaMarge

          Same old shell game. Trot out bogus numbers and then later “adjust” them. Solis should be tried for fraud.

  • elizabethrc

    Oh Lordy, now that the miraculous unemployment number is out, we can expect the same blather from liberals we’ve been subjected to for almost 4 years to be elevated! Anything to shift away from the debate failure of Obama.
    My son is a consultant at one of the larger financial institutions in the country and he says “just wait!” How many times have the monthly figures been modified within a week of coming out? I’m willing to wait this time until the true figures come out. How can the number drop so much in such a short span of time? Coincidence? Jack Welsh doesn’t think so and is pretty vocal about what he thinks the Chicago mafia is doing with the numbers.
    By the way, OT, but where is Debbie Wasserman-Schultz? Haven’t seen hide nor hair of her form quite a while now. Did she overstay her welcome and how does she like the view from under the bus?

    • MJP

      Saw her before the debate. The dems looked really nervous and shaky. I guess they had a feeling for what was to come. Valerie Jarrett looked concerned also. They were right to be so.

    • Hokma

      I am sure LJ is working on somethng about this, but here is the bottom line.

      There are two sets of numbers: one deals with payroll which are companies and actual employment which is the 104,000 or 116,000 jobs created number which is well below enough jobs just to keep up with populations trends and well below numbers like 250,000 – 350,000 expected by this time in a recovery.

      Then there is the household number which includes a lot of part time and temporary jobs which are fudged and adjusted down quickly.

      The issue is that the unemployment rate did not simply go down, it went down a LOT from 8.1% to 7.8%.

      At the same time the number of jobs created was well below population growth. So where the hell did the jobs come from to bring this down at all????

      It came from temporary and part time jobs which will be adjusted down. But to get it down to 7.8% requires that in the month of September the economy reated over 800,000 jobs!!!!

      These are definately made up numbers by the Obama administration because it required that 1+1=10 to believe their math.

      Jack Welsh is right as is even Joe Scarborough no matter how much the left wing economists try to mamiuulate the number.

      In the end this will not be good news for Obama and could place him in even more trouble with fraudulent government numbers for re-election purposes.

      • skep247

        The New York Times headline October 4, 2012:
        “New Jobless Claims Rise; Factory Orders Decline”
        ……………………….
        New unemployment claims ——-367,000

        5.2 percent decline in new orders for manufactured goods–biggest decline in almost 4 yrs.

        Only 114,00 new jobs added (not enough to keep up with population growth)

        And magically on October 5, 2012 we get the unbelievable news that the unemployment rate is down from 8.1% to 7.8%!
        Maybe I gave up my belief in the Tooth Fairy too soon.

    “…Wednesday night proved that Romney the candidate is far better than his

    campaign to date, which has achieved the impossible: keeping a President
    with above 8.1% unemployment still in the running. That is a true

  • beachnan

    Where have all the Obamabots gone? They all seem to have disappered after that debate. Just the other day, one of them was trying to convince the rest of us of how Obama has gotten us turned around and the economy is rebounding. Really? Rebounding? The middle class has been devastated the past four years. I had a nice little business going, and my contractor husband had started a new three house project with his brother. We pretty much put our life savings into that project. Well, the project went under when the housing market collapsed and my nice little business has gone down steadily in the past 4 years, after 8 straight years of growth, thanks to the ineptness of Obama and the Dems. I am 58 and my husband is 62 and the chances of us recovering what we lost are pretty slim. I am praying for a Romney win. Many of us are barely hanging on. Mitt gets it and Obama never will.

    • akaPatience

      Same here beachnan. At our age there’s not a lot of time to try to regain what we’ve lost these past few years. I know that even if Romney wins, things won’t change overnight since it seems we’re headed for another recession.

      • elizabethrc

        My mother had an infinite capacity to adjust her way of living based on an ever decreasing income. She did it with good grace and I hope to be able to carry that attitude with me, should Obama win, because we’re all going to be faced with the debris of his failed policies.

    • HObama HObamanana

      As absolutely batshit crazy as Juan Williams has been after the debate I’m beginning to wonder if he might be the source of the Obots.

      • KenoshaMarge

        I started watching “The Five” last night and Williams was such an ass I turned it off. He’s worse than Beckel and I can say worse of no one.

        • HObama HObamanana

          I watched that too but made it through to the end only because I like the other 4 so much. Williams is truly delusional and pretends to be unbiased while doing nothing but mouth-piecing Obama talking points. Beckel has at least the good sense to shut his mouth and let other people talk, usually.

          • KenoshaMarge

            Williams never shuts his pie hole. I like the other four, especially Dana and Greg, but when you can’t hear them because asshat Williams won’t STFU it’s not worth the aggravation.

            He does the same thing when he’s on a panel on Special Report or FOX News Sunday. He ruins the whole thing for me and I usually just turn it off. Ditto with Bill Kristol, although he does shut up.

            • HObama HObamanana

              What I would like is to hear Juan explain to the rest of us exactly why he thinks Obama is so great. Like, how his policies have actually turned things around and put us on the right path. It will be impossible for him to answer those questions without blaming Bush and the Republicans. I really do think he is on drugs and not just the Kool-Aid type.

              • KenoshaMarge

                He can’t “explain” it because Juan Williams is a giant, walking, talking point. If he told the truth or even tried to find the truth it would interfere with his preconceived notions.
                Willfully blind is still definitely blind.

      • http://twitter.com/JangoBear Sonya A. Willis

        Juan actually said on Sean Hannity’s show after the debate that he thought the debate was no worse than a draw and Obama may have even won it!

        • KenoshaMarge

          There’s partisan and then there’s delusional. Juan Williams is the latter.

          I do believe everyone there laughed when he said that.

    • Hokma

      What I was hoping would be Romney’s startegy is coming to pass.

      Voters do not start paying attention until the end of September. So I am sure until then Romney was playing rope-a-dope while Obama outspent him 2:1 in all the swing states. The result? Obama ahead by only a little or in some state by a reachable margin.

      Romney used this debate as the start of his final stretch and in 90 minyes wiped out $150 million of Obama lying advertising and dramatially hange the trajetory of the election.

      Now when Romney starts spending in those state he will finish off Obama.

      You can tell that Obama’s Pravda are on their heels and have no asnwer and no ability to counter the deveastation of last night.

      The Obots are deprerssed beyond comprehension.

      • MJP

        I seeing it and hearing it in NC, even though Rasmussen has Romney ahead.
        We’re getting robo calls from the RNC, which are nice, and there’s ads on TV.

        • Hokma

          Rasmussen now has Romney ahead in Florida and Virginia and about even in Ohio.

  • akaPatience

    I’m still waiting for the supposed Romney ad blitz. I’ve mentioned before that it seems Obama is running a lot more ads here in OH and my suspicion has been born out as the LA Times reported twice as much spending by the POTUS in the battleground states of OH, VA and FL. IT’S TIME FOR ROMNEY TO SPEND MORE MONEY. He needs to capitalize on his debate performance. NOW. And the ads need to be punchier and not so bland, like REAL people, telling their tales of hardship, There are a lot of them so it shouldn’t be hard.
    Now, I’ve been wringing my hands about this issue for quite some time, worried about early voting, etc. But it may be that only the most partisan voters cast their ballots early and the undecided fence-sitters will wait to vote until closer to election day. If so, then waiting to blow his wad may be a sound Romney strategy. But we only have a month to go and I think it’s time. I don’t trust Martha Raddatz as much as Jim Lehrer as far as being an impartial moderator. And the townhall forum is more of a question mark. Romney needs to marshall his campaign and position himself better before the next debate in case he doesn’t fare as well as last night.

    So. question…lets just say for the sake of arguement that the following is true.

    debkafile reveals one of the
    CIA’s most dramatic scoops in many years, an epic disaster for Iran. Our most exclusive Iranian and intelligence sources disclose that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s personal cameraman, Hassan Golkhanban, who defected from his UN
    entourage in New York on Oct. 1, brought with him an intelligence treasure trove of up-to-date photographs and videos of Iran’s top leaders visiting its most sensitive and secret nuclear and missile sites. He is staying at an undisclosed
    address

    • HObama HObamanana

      If I was POTUS I would take them out. That may involve enlisting a few allies to help out but I’d keep them close and quiet. If it was true Obama would probably broadcast his intentions quite vocally and right out in the open. I can see him rehearsing his endzone dance even before the first sortie leaves the ground. Axelrod would probably contact the NFL to request special permission to put Obama’s signature on footballs and then order millions of them to offer to folks that contribute $5 to his campaign. Michelle could write a nice fundraising letter. Obama’s rap supporters will create a new dance called “The Spike.”

    According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a

    donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts,
    and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election

  • TeakWoodKite

    A word of caution. While it was rare rubberneck moment of pure pleasure watching BO get “learned”, Obama is very dangerous and highly vindictive individual, who has demonstrated repeatedly he will do anything to validate his reason to exist.
    He is a coward and one should never under-estimated BO’s pension for hurting people in pursuit of his communist goals. I urge the Romney campaign to keep the heat in the kitchen real high ’cause BO can’t take it.

    • akaPatience

      Good advice. Pwesident Pwecious’ glass jaw was fractured last night so Romney and Ryan had better look out. In spite of his carefully-cultivated “likeability” ratings, given his history I think Obama’s one of the meanest, dirtiest pols of my lifetime. Of course there’s the other opponent to look out for — Big Media.

        He did look as if he wished he had a handy drone.

    • HObama HObamanana

      I fully expect Axelrod and crew to bring out their Chicago side in the next few days (if not sooner). But I think Romney has been anticipating this and is prepared. Mitt isn’t an egotist like Barry O. He doesn’t rest on his laurels and recite Stewart Smalley assurances in the mirror five times a day like that Hussein fella while all the common Muslims are down on their knees praying.

    donation scandal coming for the backtrack bunch

    The bottom line is that Romney is “the one” Obama pretended to be.
    “The quarter-billionaire investor talked about the dangers of too-big banks. The government cutter talked about how good regulations are important for citizens and corporations. The attacker of Obamacare talked about the need to protect patients.”

      Obama has been spending heavily in WA state…and that’s not a good sign for him. I mentioned this a few weeks ago and some said he might be doing it for down ticket candidates. The only problem…none of the ads are down ticket ads…they’re all just him.

      No candidate spends this kind of money for down ticket candidates without even showing the candidate with his arm around the people he’s supporting. He’s in trouble here.

      • KenoshaMarge

        Obama has never shown that he cares about down ticket candidates.
        Flying in and pretending to be supportive is as far as he goes. Showering them with his “golden” presence is all he thinks is needed. Then when many don’t want that presence he gets petulant.
        There are some “blue” collectives where his presence is still beneficial but money is always welcome. His campaign has always shown itself to be for itself.

        • HObama HObamanana

          After all, he told Dems early on that they would need to find their own money.

          • KenoshaMarge

            Chalk up one time he didn’t lie!

    Ryan will have to treat Biden with truth, but show respect. I think he has been taught how to do that. If he comes off like a smart mouth know it all he will lose a lot of respect.
    do not make Biden the victim. It does not become Ryan

    • DianaLC

      I am always most impressed with Ryan whenever I see him speak to someone while also disagreeing with them. He just plain pummels them nicely and calmly with his knowledge of the budget, of economics, and of math.

    • binky354

      Interesting that the Ryan – Biden debate will include foreign as well as domestic policy.

      • DianaLC

        Isn’t that because we’re supposed to be deciding who would best be able to take over the job as POTUS if necessary?

  • akaPatience

    Ryan’s challenge will be to avoid appearing overly wonkish while still conveying a command of facts and reality. He’s obviously intellectually superior to Biden, but Biden has gotten far in life mainly because he’s perceived as affable and folksy. Ryan needs to show a folksy side as well PLUS, given his image as being the government version of a corporate hatchet man, he’ll need to show caring and compassion. He can do it. After all, I think his willingness to tackle the big issue of spending in itself shows a tremendous compassion for younger generations who will be burdened with the bills for today’s profligate spenders.

    I saw a picture of Gore with his comment blaming high altitude air for Obama’s poor performance.
    I also found all the weight Bill Clinton lost. I hope there is a reward.

  • JohnnyTwoDog

    Biden off the Bench is not going to bail out Obama’s performance. They will really need the Mercy Rule when Biden tries to match up with Ryan.

  • Hokma

    I just cannot wait for his debate with Ryan and if Ryan starts to get under his skin. Particularly when Ryan agrees with and and then names his gaffes that he agrees with.

  • BronwynsHarbor

    So glad to see that you got that video up, Larry! It’s astonishing … and it is a huge gift to Romney and Ryan, who need one about now.

    Thing is, I almost feel sorry for him. He’s no spring chicken (aargh, an over-used phrase) … and he has had, what, one or two brain aneurysms. Which, besides all other issues, his desire to run in 2016 is a frightening prospect because if he had another aneurysm or a stroke, etc., etc., lord knows if the “ship of state, er fools” could stay afloat. And when I use the term “fools,” I include both Democrats and Republicans as well as the stuck-up conservatives who guard their little kingdom as if their edicts meant much to anyone. Democrats aren’t the only ones with their subset of ideologues.

    YES! Let’s hope that Romney can sneak that one in tonight. I am 99% certain he won’t bring up Wright … better his surrogates, no not even they — better sites like Daily Caller and Drudge spread the word — Drudge alone has a monumentally huge readership because he dances with the girl who brung him .. he doesn’t improve on what works. Meanwhile, Kos endlessly changes his site so that it is hard for an occasional visitor to figure out where to find what. I know a LOT of liberals who use Drudge’s site because of his fantastic lists of columnists and newspapers/TV – worldwide, to boot.

    Yeah, Drudge will handle Wright and Romney can get in a zinger about Joe Blow.

    • JohnnyTwoDog

      he won’t bring up Wright”
      I am 100% certain on that. Nor will he bring up anything related to that theme. It will all be about the past 4 years, and two different futures.

    report mexican federal police tried to assassinate two CIA officers when they fired on US embassy vehicle

  • Retired_from_SPOnaj

    To be honest, I don’t think I will be able to watch the VP debates. The young slaughtering the old is just too heartbreaking. Kind of like Logan’s Run and the Carousel of Fire.

    • BronwynsHarbor

      That’s really cute, Retired … but, come on now, ‘fess up. You’re gonna watch. It’s like those car chases on TV — ridiculous to air and watch, but somehow mesmerizing because it’s live drama. (Did you hear Fox’s apologies the past few days when they inadvertently didn’t delay the tape, or catch it in time, and showed a man commit suicide when he jumped out of his automobile after a car chase?) I wonder how many people were too embarrassed to admit that they kind of wished they’d watched — well, only the car chase.

      However this entire thing turns out, Joe and Paul will probably live to see another day. I don’t think they’ll blow their brains out on TeeVee or that Paul, as you intimated, might slaughter Joe. Way too gory, but the bootleg videos … the Internet traffic would probably crash the entire system worldwide. Especially considering how popular we Americans are these days, ahem.

      • JohnnyTwoDog

        I’m with SPO. I won’t watch either. I’d rather read about it tomorrow. That is what will matter anyway. What is said about it.
        I would get nightmares of the camera fixated on upturned nose Obama rudely shaking his head every moment Romney speaks as if responding to a Pavlovian bell.
        A stammering and stuttering Obama will interupt as often as humanly possible in crass attempt to shake Romney.
        I already know the theme, plot and direction. Don’t need to see it.

        • TeakWoodKite

          I admit some rubbernecking fasination with watching Obama run aground, even though it is contrary to my sense of charity.
          I wish Romney the best. He has my vote. And my empathy for having to debate a guy who has admitted in public he is clueless, when saying doing his homework is a drag.

        • binky354

          iwant to watch the debate, but I’m sure i coudn’t get a ticket to get in… Maybe Bob Beclkel could get me in has his guestl Help Bob

        Bronwyn, I was doing something that many people never do any more when that Shep Smith spot was playing out. I was ironing. I did NOT watch when it became apparent that the guy was clearly in terrible distress. That is NOT something I want burned in my memory banks. I walked away from the ironing board until everything was over and Smith was apologizing.

    Although a month old, here is a great summary description on ObamaCare:
    http://youtu.be/vdnY8r7_fLw
    From a video posted on YouTube that shows Dr. Barbara Bellar speaking at a Women for Romney/Ryan rally last month:

    “So let me get this straight. This is a long sentence.
    We are going to be gifted with a health care plan that we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t, which reportedly covers 10 million more people without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman doesn’t understand it, passed by Congress, that didn’t read it, but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that is broke.

    So what the blank could possibly go wrong?”

    • Hokma

      I saw that. She was terrific and right.

      So far the results have been even a greater rate of increase in health insurance costs because of mandated requirements by the federal government, and less options to choose from.

      My son is a doctor and we have several in the family (mix of Dems and Repubs) and what she voiced was shared by all.
