Translation

Hilary: “Because we can’t move from crisis to crisis, we have to be willing to come together as citizens to focus on the kind of future we want,” she said. As the shouts grew louder from an upper section of bleachers, she added, “which doesn’t include yelling. It includes sitting down and talking.” (sit down and shut up I’m Talking!)

But as we know, Democrats don’t listen to anyone who disagrees with them. 🙂

During the question-and-answer session, the former first lady deflected the inevitable question about whether she’d run for president by saying she hoped whoever ran would be able to “isolate the extreme voices” and allow the majority of people to be heard.

Translation: Yes. But we have to crush the Tea Party “extremists” and crush and  win back the House first. So then the Democrats can do whatever they want, whenever they want, and because they want and no “extremist” (disagreement) will get in their way.

“I’m hoping we will — move away from the slash and burn politics, the name calling, the excessive partisanship that we’ve seen too much of lately,” she said.

Because if we control everyone and everything then it won’t matter what you think.

…lamenting as she did again in Buffalo that too many people in politics were choosing “scorched earth over common ground.” (CBS)

You can “negotiate” with a liberal politician? Since when? I’m sure Harry Reid is open to anything the Republican propose. It’s not like they have an AGENDA or anything??

Common Ground? Nuking each other IS the only common ground anyone has left thanks to the hyper-partisaned AGENDA.

You give them everything they want and they won’t nuke you with their Ministry of Truth or call you “racists”.

Simple. 🙂

Recovery Summer IV Results

Economy: After his embarrassing failure on the foreign policy front, President Obama decided to tout his success managing the U.S. economy — just as the historically weak recovery shows fresh signs of weakening further.

In a speech marking the fifth anniversary of the Lehman Bros. collapse, Obama ticked off a laundry list of alleged accomplishments since taking office: I stopped another Great Depression, saved the auto industry, put people to work, etc.

“We cleared away the rubble from the financial crisis,” he said, “and we’ve begun to lay a new foundation for economic growth and prosperity.”

Unfortunately, it’s a foundation built on quicksand.

Just last week we learned that retail sales have softened, consumer sentiment hit a five-month low, job growth in August was still tepid and the number of job losers posted its biggest jump since 2010.

All are signs the economy isn’t going to live up to expectations in the final months of the year.

This comes after 50 months of sluggish growth that has left 4.3 million out of work long-term, helped drive 10 million out of the job market, pushed the labor participation rate to 35-year lows, boosted food stamp rolls by 14 million and pushed nearly 3 million into poverty.

Just 13 states have employment rates above their pre-recession peaks (all but four of them, by the way, voted against Obama in 2008).

Thanks to Obama’s sluggish growth, real median household income remains 4.4% below where it was when his “recovery” started.

The day Obama gave his remarks, the AP reported that the unemployment rate among low-income families is at Great Depression levels of 21%, but among upper-income households it’s 3.2%. That, AP’s analysis found, is the widest gap on record.

AP also found that middle-income workers are increasingly ending up with lower-wage jobs, forcing lower-skilled workers out of the job market.

Meanwhile, a survey out of the University of Chicago finds that a record 8.4% of Americans consider themselves “lower class.”

Here’s another way to look at it: Had Obama’s recovery merely been average, there would be 7.4 million more people gainfully employed today, and the economy would be $1.3 trillion bigger.

Even the left is noticing that, despite Obama’s endless blather about building prosperity from the ground up, his recovery has had the opposite effect — concentrating whatever gains there have been at the top.

The Huffington Post called it “the most uneven recovery in at least several decades” — which would include the Reagan, Clinton and Bush recoveries.

Among the evidence presented: Workers in the bottom 20% have seen their real average hourly wages decline steadily under Obama, compared with gains at the very top. And while 60% of the jobs lost in the recession paid mid-wages, only 22% of the jobs gained in Obama’s recovery did so.

Incredibly, amid all this, Obama claims to see “progress across the board.”  Then again, Obama thinks his foreign policy adventures have been a success, too. (IBD)

“Are some of these folks really so beholden to one extreme wing of their party that they’re willing to tank the entire economy just because they can’t get their way on this issue?” Obama said in a speech at the White House. “Are they really willing to hurt people just to score political points?” (Townhall)

WELL, we know HE IS. He’s been doing it for 5 years now! 🙂

Obama conceded the problems. “As any middle class family will tell you or anybody who’s striving to get in the middle class, we are not yet where we need to be,” he said.

And never will be, with Progressives in charge because they depend on making people poor and dependent on them and making rich people less rich and demonic to keep them them there.

“After all the progress that we’ve made over these last four and a half years, the idea of reversing that progress because of an unwillingness to compromise or because of some ideological agenda is the height of irresponsibility,” Obama said.

Which is why he won’t compromise on anything that has been done or will be done. But he’s not ideologically rigid… 🙂

After all, it’s “Congress” (Read: Republicans) Fault!

He’s not partisan. 🙂

It’s all Chicken Crap!

Speaker-Designate John Boehner yesterday when the Liberal Democrats pulled a petullant and childish partisan political stunt had it right.

“I’m trying to catch my breath so I don’t refer to this maneuver going on today as chicken crap, all right?” Boehner told reporters in the Capitol Thursday. “But this is nonsense. All right? The election was one month ago. We’re 23 months from the next election, and the political games have already started, trying to set up the next election. We had an honest conversation at the White House about the challenges that we face to get out of here and to take care of what the American people expect of us. And they roll this vote out today; it really is just what you think I was going to say anyway.”

Just days after a “White House Summit” on the Bush Era Tax issue (They are not “Cuts” because if they are not renewed your taxes go UP, if they are renewed NOTHING HAPPENS to your taxes. They DON”T GO DOWN. They are not “cuts!”) Nancy Pelosi personally orchestrates a F*CK YOU maneuver very reminiscent of what happened right after the Health Care Summit where the Democrats said that was fun, now we are going to do what we want, because we want, and F*ck you!
So in show of total hyper-partisanship and a pie in the face to their own President the petulant little children in the House passed in a warp speed maneuver that would make the Picard Maneuver look like a turtle on Valium as they thumbed their collective noses at everyone and passed their “middle class tax cut” regardless.
The fact that it’s not a “cut” is perfectly ignored by Liberals in Congress and Liberals in the media.
But the petulant children did it anyways. You can almost see Pelosi just sticking her tongue and waggling her fingers at everyone.
So they passed what they want. No negotiation. No Compromise. No amendments. No discussion.
Just rammed it through and f*ck you!
Gotta preserve that core addiction that Liberals have for Class Warfare.
And, it would definitely be a great boon to job seekers everywhere if there potential bosses taxes were raised right now. That will surely make everything much better!
And you know they are cutting 2012 campaign commercials right now, “Republicans voted to not to cut taxes on the middle class”, “Republicans wanted to give tax cuts to the rich!”
The same old mantra.
And if you think Democrats are intellectually capable of understanding how childish this all was…Think again.
We Dare you to vote against a “Middle Class Tax Cut”. Go ahead we double dog Dare you! We Triple dog dare you!
We have lots of friends in the liberal media who’ll bash you for the next 2 years 24/7  if you do!!
Intellectual maturity this isn’t.
It was a political stunt, by people who lost an election big because that’s all they have done for the last 2 years is one cramdown stunt after another.
Learn anything after the election, of course not.
They are far, far too narcissistic and ideologically hell bent for that.
They know it’s Dead on Arrival in the Senate, but they don’t care. It’s all show. It’s all just a game.
A petulant child’s game.
We the People deserve better.
