Occupy Atlanta gives John Lewis the Cold Shoulder

Apparently having solved all other problems in Georgia, a group of roughly 300 protesters decided to mimic the recent events in Manhattan and set up Occupy Atlanta. Unlike their brothers and sisters in arms up in the Big Apple, though, they didn’t have to wait for weeks on end to attract the attention of the political establishment. On the very first evening, member of Congress and civil rights icon John Lewis showed up to lend his support and say a few words to the assembled crowd. So… how did that work out? Continue reading

Zuckerman: America has a competency crisis in the White House

The president appears to consider himself immune from error and asserts the fault always lies elsewhere—be it in the opposition in Congress or the Japanese tsunami or in the failure of his audience to fully understand the wisdom and benefits of his proposals. But in politics, the failure of communication is invariably the fault of the communicator. Continue reading

Palin: If We Were Really Terrorists, Obama Might Want to Pal Around With Us

On August 2nd, 2011 at 11:31 pm, old goat said:

I studied terrorism back in the dark ages–maybe it was a shadow of things to come? Love American History too. Have become a lot of things this week. Hobbit, TEAorist, what next?

Thanks for posting the clip Doug. I do enjoy Sarah’s sharp and quick wit. Continue reading

Debt-Limit Deal Must Come By Mid-July to Avert Default, Officials Say [Really?]

“If we were to do a very short-term deal, we don’t know if the markets would accept that,” Schumer said. “Maybe that would send a panic into the markets that we’re all worried about.” Yet leaders of the Republican-controlled House must contend with a contingent of freshman members aligned with the Tea Party who have expressed skepticism about the urgency of lifting the debt limit.

Hastings: Obama energy policies “anti-American”

Hastings is well respected and is known for being a reasonable, level headed legislator with a lot of experience on energy issues. You probably have to put a significantly large bee under his bonnet to provoke this sort of official response. Of course, given the round drubbing that Obama has taken over this blatantly political maneuver, it’s fairly easy to understand. Continue reading

CNBC: Housing Crisis Officially Worse Than Great Depression

“The sharp fall in house prices in the first quarter provided further confirmation that this housing crash has been larger and faster than the one during the Great Depression,” says Paul Dales, senior economist at Capital Economics in Toronto, according to CNBC. Continue reading

Obama Aims to Take Reins of Debt Issue, Faces GOP Opposition to Tax Proposals

President Obama’s much-anticipated speech Wednesday aimed at taking the reins of the fierce debt debate on Capitol Hill has House Republican leaders sharpening their knives and some members of a bipartisan group of senators feeling a bit frustrated.

Members of the so-called Gang of Six, already under the gun to craft a 10-year debt-and-deficit-reduction package, are feeling more pressure with Obama planning to outline his vision for getting the nation’s fiscal house in order. Continue reading

White House: Obama Vote Against Raising Debt Limit a ‘Mistake’

AP2011

If President Obama knew then what he knows now, he would not have voted against raising the debt limit in 2006. Continue reading

Boehner: I’m a little surprised that Obama didn’t mention entitlement reform last night

That makes one of us. If you’re anticipating an excoriation of The One here based on the above headline, lower your expectations: Not only does Boehner resort to gassy platitudes about an “adult conversation” on entitlements, but when pressed by Kathleen Parker on how he’s going to chip away at our colossal deficit, he mentions reining in congressmen’s personal budgets and trimming $50-60 billion in spending. (Oh, and repealing ObamaCare, which has no chance of becoming law anytime soon.) To refresh your memory, CBO said just a few hours ago that we’ll be another $1.5 trillion in the red this year alone; $50 billion in cuts would put a dent in that of just a bit more than … three percent. It’s like trying to tear down Mt. Everest by carrying one softball-sized rock at a time off the mountain. Continue reading

Gas’n’Go Under

Add that to the fact that Democrats have opposed virtually every effort to exploit or expand domestic resources over the last 40 years (the newest refinery in the U.S. was built in 1976; while the newest nuclear power plant dates to 1996), and the picture becomes clear.

So, Senator Boxer: When are you scheduling your “President Obama isn’t doing enough to lower gas prices” press conference? Continue reading
