The highlight for me is around 01:18, when Warren over-emotes.  Hiarity!

1,000 Days

A red button with "1000 Days" on it.

1000 Days since Obama had a budget

Tonight it’s time for Obama to tell us how wonderful everything is…. but not so wonderful that he has to answer for it during the election.  Yay.

 

Santorum winning? Wow….

This is  becoming an interesting race.  Of course, last I heard, he was just up by five votes.  Dang….

 

Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator who for months languished at the bottom of Republican polls, may be hard-pressed to repeat his Iowa performance, where his solid conservative stances on social issues like abortion and gay marriage resonated with Republican voters. It’s not clear whether the message will work as well in states where the economy is a bigger issue or if he can come up with the funds or organization to sustain a national campaign.

Also, he has yet to face the intense scrutiny that has caused other conservative challengers to Romney to wither as soon as they climbed to the top of polls.

Occupy Wall Street – “You’re a bum, Jew!”

It seems like the “Occupy Wall Street” folks have taken on all of the negative characteristics that were falsely attributed to the TEA party folks.  Heck, they even lack racial diversity.    Heck, they seem so embarrassed by it that they’ve declared “LGBT” to be a color  :

Even the “unofficial” organizers of the protest events admit this is — or at least appears to be — problematic.

“That’s an interesting question, and it comes up often,” OccupyWallSt.org’s Patrick Bruner said in an email to TheDC. “Unfortunately, we have a very high turnover rate, and nobody as of yet has come up with official diversity related statistics for us. From observation, I can tell you that we’re not all white, and that we also have a huge LGBT [Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender] population.”

 

Obama vs Fact Check

Not so great, even according to the AP :

Obama did not spell out exactly how he would pay for the measures contained in his nearly $450 billion American Jobs Act but said he would send his proposed specifics in a week to the new congressional supercommittee charged with finding budget savings. White House aides suggested that new deficit spending in the near term to try to promote job creation would be paid for in the future – the “out years,” in legislative jargon – but they did not specify what would be cut or what revenues they would use.

Essentially, the jobs plan is an IOU from a president and lawmakers who may not even be in office down the road when the bills come due.

Escape Pod

Dang Where did I park these escape pod?

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…. Krug Man!

For some context, see this article at Human Events.

Awesomely enough, there is a Advice Krugman meme generator.  Here’s a sample :

 

Where does the buck stop?

Ask not for where the buck stops, it stops at thee

Ask not for where the buck stops

I found this little gem over at Ace.

I miss Presidents who said stuff like “The Buck stops here”.  Obama barely admits that he’s seen the Buck.  Heck he won’t even say for sure if the Buck exists.  But if it does exist, he’s sure someone else has the Buck. Again, if there is a Buck.

 

The Obama Presidency in Summary

Wow…

If you do a google search on “stuttering clusterfuck of a miserable failure” (in quotes), the last hit is … http://www.whitehouse.gov/.   Just noticed.

UPDATE : I think I will try a little SCOAMF experiment.

Finally – Someone in Senate Talks Sense About Debt Limit Increase


“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I, therefore, intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt. ” – Sen Barack Obama (2006)
“We either save this country or we do not. And to save it, we must seek solutions.” – Sen Marco Rubio (2011)

 

BTW, it’s worthwhile looking at the SF Examiner’s summary of the Democrat Leadership’s extremely partisan votes on increasing the debt ceiling.  They pretty much always vote on partisan lines, economy &c. be damned!

Racist racism

Krugman now a *howling* partisan hack…

… as opposed to merely being a plain old vanilla partisan hack.

It seems that he’s now taking the press for task for allowing the conservative side to be given a hearing.  Apparently,President No Plan should be the only voice heard :

No, the cult that I see as reflecting a true moral failure is the cult of balance, of centrism.

Think about what’s happening right now. We have a crisis in which the right is making insane demands ….

blah, blah, blah.

The ever-changing world of Krugman…

An amusing thing from Mickey Kaus ; Paul Krugman before the failed stimulus :

So what happened to the stimulus? Much of it consisted of tax cuts, not spending. Most of the rest consisted either of aid to distressed families or aid to hard-pressed state and local governments. This aid may have mitigated the slump, but it wasn’t the kind of job-creation program we could and should have had.

Paul Krugman after the failed stimulus :

Now the centrists have shaved off $86 billion in spending — much of it among the most effective and most needed parts of the plan. In particular, aid to state governments, which are in desperate straits, is both fast — because it prevents spending cuts rather than having to start up new projects — and effective, because it would in fact be spent; plus state and local governments are cutting back on essentials, so the social value of this spending would be high

What a surprise

It turns out, contra the clams of the Obama administration, Indiana has plenty of Medicare providers of gynecological services.  No need for Planned Parenthood at all.
