He is after all, the most Interesting Man in The World. Stay thirsty my friends.
Here’s what I find fascinating.
VP Biden makes his “chains” comment and almost immediately every liberal and liberal biased media person comes screaming out of the wood work to “contextualize” it to minimize it, to “explain” it away.
But a Republican makes a gaffe and nearly week later those same people are still having a field blaming every Republican that has ever lived for it.
Well, count veteran Congressman Charlie Rangel among Mr. Biden’s critics on the Democratic side of the aisle.
“The Vice President said he’s going to put “y’all in chains,’” Mr. Rangel told The Perez Notes in a recent free-wheeling interview. “Was he talking about slavery? You bet your ass he was. Was he using the vernacular? Yes, he was. Did he think it was cute? Yes, he did. Was it something stupid to say? You bet your life it was stupid.”
“It was something that if a black had said it, we would have been laughing, because we would know deep down, they may be beating the hell out of us but they ain’t thinking about putting us into any chains,” he added.
But will that change anything? No. The extreme partisan bias and un-“fair” treatment will continue.
As I have said before, Liberals believe they can say anything, but you can’t. They can do anything, but you can’t.
You didn’t “build it” but they did.
The level of hubris and sheer balls is fascinating. And the fact that it’s also utter shameless is truly fascinating.
Mr. Biden raised eyebrows this afternoon with a speech in Minneapolis likening Mr. Romney and his fellow Republicans to “squealing pigs.”
Congressman Charlie Rangel blamed gridlock in Washington on an “extreme, conservative new element” in the Republican party that’s “willing to bring down the United States of America”
It sure a hell can’t be them!! The facts that the US Senate controlled by Democrats hasn’t passed a Budget in over 1200 days and continuously stonewalls anything the Republicans pass is the Republicans fault after all.
“When the Democrats had the majority, we liberals who thought we were the heart of the party had to yield to conservative Democrats, because without them we would not have had the majority,”
Virtually every “conservative” Democrat was exterminated in the 2010 elections, by the extremists on the Left. But we won’t talk about that. They were a “centrist” majority. 🙂
California’s Barbara Boxer opened the bidding this week in her familiar low-key style.
“There is a war against women, and Romney and Ryan — if they are elected — would become its top generals,” Boxer told a Planned Parenthood meeting. “There is a sickness out there in the Republican Party, and I’m not kidding. Maybe they don’t like their moms or their first wives.”
Reichsmarschall Romney and Generalissimo Ryan are both still married to their first wives, so it must be the moms. No wonder Ryan wants to throw his off a cliff.
To win the “war on women,” the Democratic Party’s general staff is planning its own Normandy invasion, adding to their convention line-up a host of stellar “pro-choice” speakers, including Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria, Planned Parenthood’s head honchette Cecile Richards, NARAL Pro-Choice America abortion supremo Nancy Keenan, and Georgetown Law’s contraceptive coed Sandra Fluke.
President Obama’s lavishly remunerated strategists have presumably run the focus groups and crunched the numbers. But if I were a moderate, centrist, eternally indecisive swing-voter in a critical state, and I switched on the Democrat convention to find a bunch of speakers warning about the threat to your abortion rights, I would find it a very curious priority in the summer of 2012.
None of us can know what the world will be like in four years, but one thing can be said for certain: an American woman will still enjoy her “right to choose.” Whether one supports or opposes abortion, the practical reality is that the biggest “threat” to your “right” to one is that you might have to drive a little bit farther for it.
Still, one should never underestimate the peculiar lens through which “progressives” view reality: The “war” on women boils down to Sandra Fluke, a 30-year old schoolgirl, demanding Georgetown Law should pay for its students’ contraceptives — notwithstanding that the entire cost of that four-year contraceptive bill works out to less than the first week’s paycheck of a Georgetown Law graduate’s first job (average starting salary: $160,000 per year). War is hell.
If you think Boxer’s right about Gen. Romney’s war on woman, feel free to waste your vote. But what else is likely to happen between now and the next time you cast a presidential ballot?
We’ve rehearsed the fiscal stuff in this space before: China becoming the world’s biggest economy, another American downgrade, total U.S. liabilities equivalent to about three times the entire planet’s GDP.
A “non-partisan” Pew Research study says the American middle class faces its “worst decade in modern history” — and the first bump down starts on Jan. 1. The equally “non-partisan” Congressional Budget Office now says that the tax and budget changes due to take effect at the beginning of 2013 will put the country back in recession and increase unemployment. This is a revision of their prediction earlier this year that in 2013 the economy would contract by 1.3%. Now they say 2.9%.
These days, CBO revisions only go one way — down. They’re gonna need steeper graph paper. In a global economy, atrophy goes around like syphilis in the Gay Nineties: A moribund U.S. economy further mires Europe, and both slow growth in China, which means fewer orders for resource-rich nations . . . Four wheels spinning in the mud, and none with a firm enough grip to pull the vehicle back on to solid ground.
Oh, well, it was like that in the 1930s and then, as the ever-optimistic Paul Krugman likes to trill, the Second World War came along to stimulate the economy. Given that in Afghanistan the U.S. and its allies have just taken 11 years to lose to goatherders with fertilizer, I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the global-conflagration chips falling our way next time round.
But don’t worry, ObamaCare will “lower costs.” Since passage of the bill in 2010, the CBO has revised its estimate of ObamaCare’s gross costs over 10 years. Can you guess in which direction, boys and girls? Yes, up from $944 billion to $1.856 trillion.
That’s some “revision.” I wonder where it’ll be in another two years.
Well, I’m not the CBO, but I’ll take a wild guess: ObamaCare is going to be expensive on a scale unknown to European health systems.(Mark Steyn)
Or human history, but that will be someone else on the right’s fault, after all. It can’t possibly be a Liberals fault, that never happens in their universe and shouldn’t happen in yours, you ignorant bigot.
Here’s Stephanie Cutter’s quote in full — uttered Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” — just so no one can accuse us of taking anything out of context:
“Well, I think that worker probably has a good understanding of what’s happened over the past four years in terms of the president coming in and seeing 800,000 jobs lost on the day that the president was being sworn in, and seeing the president moving pretty quickly to stem the losses, to turn the economy around. And over the past, you know, 27 months we’ve created 4.5 million private-sector jobs. That’s more jobs than in the Bush recovery (or) in the Reagan recovery.”
You’d think that if the Obama campaign wanted to peddle outright fabrications, they’d at least do it so they weren’t so easily debunked.
Not that the mainstream press, so deep in the tank for Obama, will bother. (IBD)
What’s more, after 29 months of allegedly stellar job growth under Obama, the jobless rate is still 8.3% (Over 8% since February 2009). By this point in the Reagan and Bush jobs recoveries, the unemployment rate was 7.2% and 4.9%, respectively.
If we were one of those fact-checking organizations, we’d give Stephanie Cutter the “Lying Liar from Liersburg” award. (IBD)
But she wouldn’t accept. After all, you’re just a partisan extremist if you don’t agree with a liberal.
To quote the 20th century American philosopher Mel Brooks, “It’s good to be king!”
Obama: “It is very rare I come to an event where I’m like the fifth or sixth most interesting person. Usually the folks want to take a picture with me, sit next to me, talk to me. That has not been the case at this event and I completely understand.” (ibd)

Anyway, the new Rasmussen poll reports that this time 51% of likely voters now fully expect reporters to help the incumbent Democrat keep his office, while only 9% expect reporters to help the Republican ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Nine percent? Really that much?
Other Rasmussen findings: 18% of likely voters, presumably deaf, blind and living in closets, can’t make up their minds, while 22% absolutely expect unbiased coverage throughout the remaining national agony and bonanza for commercial TV stations. Obviously, they only watch C-SPAN. (IBD)
A choice between a career pol from the crooked Chicago machine with his aged crony who’s clearly off his meds, who want to insert government into every conceivable crevice of American life because they know best how to over-spend other people’s money; and on the other side, two handsome Republican men with clean records, lovely families and long lists of impressive achievements in both politics and business, who honor their countrymen by trusting that every American knows best how to build their own lives within a safe, prosperous and free society.
Once you remove the bias, see, the choice is really pretty simple.(IBD)
