He's doing a great job of proving people who rejected the argument that Republicans were anywhere near as bad as democrats when it comes to over-spending right. Before Obama is done with us, people will be using the term "Bush" as a synonym for pennypincher:

That guy is really a Bush. Have you ever noticed how he's always conveniently visiting the restroom when the check for the bar tab comes? It practically takes a crowbar to pry open his wallet.

"I'll never stop fighting for you"

I heard an edited cut of his speech. It sounds like he is pissed off because things just aren't going his way. His fight has nothing to do with the people in the U.S., it has to do with his perception of himself and the fact that OUR perception is that he is a liar and a crook. He's beginning to make Bush look like a choir boy.

I don't think so. He had humanitarian relief which was needed immediately, held off so the military could go in first. The aid workers were staved off. Then the military had to secure it's needs first instead of providing aid. The level of violence was exaggerated.

Plus we're going to rebuild it on our dime. Do you actually think those people will take care of that? Nope it will go right back to how it was before at some point. It's just an excuse to occupy and do more nation building.

Donations from the American people could have handled this just fine along with the private aid and other relief workers. Americans gave more to the Indonesian tsunami relief on their own—more than what Europe gave taken from their taxes. I'm not saying some military shouldn't have been used but how it was done was just wrong. They're also not social workers.

People who have superior ideas, shouldn't have to resort to lies like you do. It weakens the persuasiveness your valid points will have every time you do this. I already corrected this once. The military's mission in this case WAS humanitarian relief. They weren't there for security, occupation, combat, or any other typical military mission. They didn't displace humanitarian relief, they were just a different brand of that relief.

It's a myth if you think that unarmed civilian humanitarian aid workers would set foot in Haiti if they didn't have some protection from looters, gangs, etc etc. One of the first tenents of responding to a disaster is to not get in a position where the responder needs rescuing.

On the day prior to the earthquake, "on Monday [January 11, 2010], Jean Demay, DISA's technical manager for the agency's Transnational Information Sharing Cooperation project, happened to be at the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command in Miami preparing for a test of the system in a scenario that involved providing relief to Haiti in the wake of a hurricane." (Bob Brewin, op cit, emphasis added)

The Transnational Information Sharing Cooperation project (TISC) is a communications-information tool which "links non-government organizations with the United States [government and military] and other nations for tracking, coordinating and organizing relief efforts".(Government IT Scrambles To Help Haiti, TECHWEB January 15, 2010).

The TISC is an essential component of the militarization of emergency relief.


Militarization of relief is not vital and necessary. This is NOT good. Looks like a Rham Emmanuel moment taking advantage of a crisis for more nation-building and perhaps occupation of more countries under globalism.

Hmmm...that's why private relief workers made better inroads in hurricane relief right over govt efforts in the past. Tell my have you ever been involved in hurricane relief or been in a hurricane needing help afterwards. I didn't think so. Lots of stories there including in Katrina.

Don't forget we've been intervening in Haiti for years: Clinton installed commie Aristade and the 1990 sanctions by Bush Sr. wrecked its economy. Intervention in Haiti has been going on for about 100 years. Wilson invaded for a German investment firm while rewarding US banks. We were openly in charge of Haitian government fianances until 1947. We should have a good neighbor policy for sure. Warmonger Obama looks to be taking advantage to install it as a protectorate or a colony.

My comments were in regard to acting presidential and providing relief immediately to ensure there is food, water, medicial care and security in absence of government. If you read anything from my posts in the past you would get the picture that I am against "nation building" projects and foreign aid as to most of it is given to corrupt governments. In this case I agree with his call on providing immediate assistance, anything beyond that I am not to sure of.

I think it's a great opportunity for our military to (a) generate goodwill for the US and (b) practice for inevitable future nation building activities. We need get better at these things to effectively project power without leaving failed states in our wake. We should be reluctant to fight but we should have the option to do it effectively (including post-hostilities operations) when we need to. It would have made a big difference in Iraq, for example.

I have been saying this since the Brown election...Republicans keep patting themselves on the back but they don't even know what they are going to bring to the table or who is going to play what they see as a more favorable hand.

4 of the last 5 democrat Presidents served one term or less and none of them screwed the country up as bad as Obama has in his first year. Not even Carter although I guess that's arguable. Even Clinton might have failed to get re-elected if he hadn't had the good fortune of the Republican take-over in 1994.

I'm not saying that Obama won't be re-elected, but if I were a democrat I wouldn't be real comfortable about it. IMO, Obama's chances increase if the Republicans take control of the House (even moreso if they take the Senate which seems very unlikely to me). If democrats retain control of both houses of Congress, any solid Republican candidate should have a good shot at winning, IMO.

Of course, the economy will have a big say in this. I'm not expecting it to say nice things about the incumbant power-weilders though.

I guess I don't see why this is assumed by some. A solid Republican running. What do you think that means? How many of those are out there?

I am not saying R's can't or won't put up a good solid candidate but it seems to be assumed by a lot of people and I don't know where that confidence comes from.

There are lots of potentially* solid candidates in the Republican party. Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Tim Pawlenty, and Paul Ryan (not to be confused with Ron Paul who I don't consider a solid candidate) to name just a few. By "solid" I'm not talking about "magical" or "once-in-a-generation". Hell, if John McCain were a few years younger, he might even have a chance against 2012 Obama. In 2012, Obama is going to have to run on his record not as a blank slate against Bush. With everything aligned for him in 2008, he still only managed to get 52% of the vote.

Remember that back in 2006, there was only one standout POTUS candidate in the democrat party and she didn't even manage to get the nomination.

Because as Saul Good pointed out, the election will be a referrendum on Obama, and if the democrats remain in control of both houses of Congress, on the democrats as a whole. Look at Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee's '08 campaign website to get an idea of what a Republican candidate might bring to the table. Republicans seem unfocused and leaderless now because they are out of power. The dems seemed just as "out of ideas" if not moreso when they were out of power. When the time comes, the Republican candidate will have enough talking points to sound like he's saying something (just like Obama did last time around) without saying anything too controversial and the voters will decide whether or not the like his personality enough to vote for a change from what they've had for the past 4 years.

I'm betting that Obama's "past 4 years" aren't going to be very good and unless he has a Republican Congress to share the blame with, I think it gives the Republican a strong chance. If Obama can make people feel good about an economic recovery or if he can get them to hold Republicans equally responsible for problems, he's in pretty good shape. I don't think his charm will be enough to get him by the second time around though.

RomneyCare doesn't affect me as I don't live in MA. If my guess about Obama's stature after his first four years is right, Republicans won't need a "solution" to win. They'll just need a guy who doesn't have an already discredited reputation (like Palin and possibly Gingrich) and who isn't a fringe candidate (like Paul) or a near-octogenarian (like Paul or McCain).

Either of the guys I mentioned would fit the bill, IMO, even if I don't like both of them equally. And by mentioning them, I'm not saying they are the best two possible choices.

Colin Powell is another one who could unseat Obama although I doubt he'd want to do so. If he got the Republican nomination, it might be enough to lead me to throw a protest vote Paul's way though.

Gov't buys $2.5M in Super Bowl ads to boost census


WTF?!?!?!?.........Your tax dollars at work Ladies and Gents.


WASHINGTON – Faced with record levels of red-ink into the foreseeable future, Washington is spending $2.5 million to create buzz for the census — by advertising during the Super Bowl.

The Census Bureau is hoping to exploit the strong ratings from this annual attraction, aiming to get more participation from people who now seem disinclined to mail back a government questionnaire or even answer the door.

Census officials call it a good investment, saying the front-end costs of purchasing the ads can be quickly recouped if they succeed in encouraging people to mail back their census forms.

Not everyone is happy with the taxpayer cost.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., tweeted this week that the government "shouldn't be wasting $2.5 million taxpayer dollars to compete with ads for Doritos!" Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., called on the Census Bureau to justify every dollar of its $133 million ad campaign, citing the tight economic times.

The census officially began last month in rural Alaska, and most of the U.S. will receive their forms by mail the week of March 15. A recent poll found nearly 1 in 5 residents said they may not fill them out, mostly because they were unfamiliar with the census or weren't interested.

There's no such lack of interest on the part of the governors, mayors, county commissioners, congressmen and women and state legislators — a host of public figures ranging from city hall to the U.S. Capitol — who hang on every census because the head count determines the size and shape of legislative districts and, equally critical, just how much money the various localities from some $400 billion in federal aid.

Plans for the Super Bowl commercials come after the House voted Thursday to increase America's debt by $1.9 trillion — to $14.3 trillion — or over $40,000 for every man, woman and child the Census Bureau hopes to catch in its count.

In the ads, actor Ed Begley Jr. plays a film director in the ad spots, where he announces with flourish a new project that will create a portrait of "every man, woman and child in this beautiful country of ours ... a snapshot of America." Looking quizzically, two onlookers whisper, "Isn't that what the Census is doing?"

It's an ad buy the Census Bureau believes worked well during the 2000 census, when it ran similar spots during the Super Bowl for the first time. This year's $2.5 million deal, which the agency says could reach 45 percent of all U.S. adults, includes two 30-second pregame spots, two or three on-air mentions by sportscaster James Brown and a 30-second ad during the third-quarter.

The Census Bureau says few events can match the Super Bowl's reach of 100 million TV viewers. That's because for every percentage point increase in the mail response rate, it saves an additional $85 million to find and count those people.

The government plans additional census spots during the Winter Olympics and Daytona 500, as well as road tours throughout the country, including the Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans and Chinese New Year celebrations in San Francisco.

Segments are also planned in social media, such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and YouTube.

Subsequent census ads will encourage people to mail in their form with themes such as "It's in your hands" and "We can't move forward until you mail it back." They will followed later by spots aimed at letting people know that census-takers may be visiting their homes.

(This version CORRECTS Corrects 11th graf to say gov't saves $85 million for every percentage point increase in mail response rate; INSERTS new 5th graf, lifting McCain, Isakson comments.)

A walk down memory lane...

Enjoy it Dems, you just elected the least qualified president in American history
________________________________________
You won today. You will have your Democratic Congress and President to gloat over for the next few weeks or so, your "countdown to January 20th" signatures at the ready, you'll have your revenge for 2004 when your Republican coworkers and friends busted your balls everyday over Kerry's concession speech, and you'll have your change. You will be able to somewhat disingenuously say that you were a part of history, that you made a difference, and that your candidate will make a difference for the better of this country. After all it was never about what he stood for, what he did, who he was, or why he was running after 150 unaccomplished days in the Senate; it was about winning and sticking it to an outgoing President who has been blamed for everything from the current economic crisis to the World Trade Center attacks. It wasn't about substance, it was about theatrics, looks, college degrees, styrofoam Greek columns, and calling anyone who disagreed with you an ignorant redneck. I guess this is just retribution for all of the tired insults you took over the past eight years for not supporting Bush, but then again now it's your turn so who cares about what your candidate can do or has done?

You wanted Obama? Great, you got Obama. And with Obama you got a man who has most likely accomplished less than the candidates who are running for mayor in your hometown this election, someone who used his election to the Senate as a launching pad for higher office, rather than as a mandate by his constituents to serve the community who elected him. You have a man whose sole "qualification" to be president rests on the fact that he can speak well, that he went to Harvard, and that he is black; a candidate whose knowledge of economics extends only as far as "social justice" is concerned and a candidate who was prepared to lose the war in Iraq in 2006 when it was a popular idea. But never mind that, McBush lost and you made Republicans mad, it's not about making this country better, if you wanted that you could have voted for Bill Richardson in your party's primary. It was about winning the battle to have someone with a different color of skin pigment become president before the Republicans did, regardless of qualification, ideology, or affiliation and Obama wrote two books and spoke at the DNC convention so therefore you went with him, rather than an accomplished governor with a real legacy of change.

You wanted bipartisanship? Unity among Republicans and Democrats, rich and poor, black and white, young and old? Well then congratulations, you just elected a candidate who is as partisan to the left as John Ashcroft was to the right. Someone who has never worked across the aisle for any bill with political baggage attached to it, against a candidate who is hated by his own party for siding with yours. McCain voted to confirm Ginsburg and Breyer to the Supreme Court, passed the McCain-Feingold bill with vitriolic GOP opposition, worked with Democrats on anti-smoking laws against his own party, ran against Bush in 2000 and was his main Republican critic throughout his term in office, who publicly called for Rumsfeld's resignation in the last election, who sponsored an unsuccessful bill to cap carbon emissions with Democrats, and who sponsored the McCain-Kennedy bill on immigration reform which made him the punching bag of conservative talk radio well into this election. Somehow you managed to turn this otherwise honorable and open minded senator into an old, decrepit, thoughtless stooge of the Republican Party, you valued words over actions and took Obama's claim that McCain is the same as Bush at face value. This isn't to say that McCain is a good candidate, just to remind you guys as to how full of sh*t you are when you say you are for bipartisanship and change.

But again, it wasn't about the issues, it was about winning, and what could be more important than that? Now you guys can brag about how Obama is a "breath of fresh air after eight years of hell" around the water cooler/student's lounge and how you made a difference by voting, something which ranks somewhere between spelling your name and tying your shoes in the grand list of human accomplishments. Now you have a candidate who will withdraw the troops from Iraq without so much as a second thought of the consequences, who will meet unconditionally with every tyrant hell bent on militarily or politically defeating the West, who will enact New Deal era policies in a time of economic contraction, who will tax the public for a "global poverty initiative", who will spend hundreds of billions more on failing over-funded public schools, government housing, "promise neighborhoods", "green" jobs, and in subsidies for failing corporations like GM simply to support already enriched labor unions.

Savor the victory, I know I did in 2004 when Kerry's concession speech was broadcast in the diner my liberal friend (and Kerry campaign organizer) and I were in. Just remember that this wasn't change we believed in, it is change you believed in. The ball is in your court now, and if Barack Obama cannot deliver then you won't have big bad Bush to hang the blame on.

Don't worry about Comrade Obama imposing socialism on America. It's already been imposed. That's why the economy is slumping toward collapse, as people mutter bleakly about our best days being behind us.

This won't stop Democrats from continuing to bleat about "the rich" (a.k.a. employers) being forced to "pay their fair share." Until we've been reduced to subsistence level collectivism, their work is not done.

Now even the loudest Obamacare cheerleader wants out
New York’s Rep. Anthony Weiner wants a ‘get out of jail free’ card
Becoming the most hypocritical politician in America is not an easy goal to achieve, but New York’s Rep. Anthony Weiner, a Democrat, is up to the task.
Earlier this year, the Obama administration began rewarding its union friends and others with an escape from the clutches of Obamacare. Now one of the most outspoken Obamacare supporters - the man who actually said, “I wrote the bill … the bill and I are one” wants his own “get out of jail free” card from this abominable law.
Moments of unmistakable clarity may not always find their way to the president’s teleprompter, but occasionally, the curtains are pulled back on “the most open and transparent [administration] in history” to reveal what its footsoldiers think of their own law. This conflict between politicians’ words and deeds is nothing new, of course, nor is the selective enforcement of bad laws.
In 2007, the Association for Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), the defunct leftist group with close ties to President Obama, was a vigorous proponent of the “living wage,” a euphemism for increasing the minimum wage. Long before the organization collapsed in the wake of group leaders exposing themselves as eager enablers of child prostitution and reorganized under a new name, ACORN sought an exemption - its own waiver - from the minimum-wage laws it professed to love.
Ironically, the community organizers had their own moment of clarity about the destructive nature of minimum-wage laws: “The more that ACORN must pay each individual outreach worker - whether because of minimum wage or overtime requirements - the fewer outreach workers it will be able to hire.” Finally grasping the inescapable reality that minimum-wage laws increase unemployment, these big-government types refused to abandon their pursuit of the destructive laws and instead simply wanted an exemption from them, an uneven playing field, instead of better laws that would benefit all Americans.
Fast-forward four years, and the community organizer in the White House evidently has had his own moment of clarity about the unholy health care law that bears his name. Obamacare is already leaving a trail of destruction. Despite promises to the contrary, Mr. Obama’s own Medicare chief actuary estimates that up to 20 million Americans may lose their current health insurance. Despite promises to the contrary, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates Obamacare will destroy 800,000 jobs. Despite promises to the contrary, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius recently admitted cooking the books by double-counting $500 billion toward both Medicare savings and Obamacare implementation funds and admitted that a major program within Obamacare, the CLASS Act, is - in her words - “totally unsustainable.” As a direct result of this government takeover, many insurance companies already have been forced to raise their premiums or drop out of the Medicare Advantage program, while others no longer offer policies for children, and still others have simply closed their doors.
So how does the White House respond to this unraveling? With more waivers. HHS acknowledges issuing 1,040 “get out of jail free” cards to unions and other friends. Five states have been graced with their very own Obamacare waivers, including Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, Tennessee and, newest pampered friend, Maine. Why Maine? According to the administration, Obamacare “has a reasonable likelihood of destabilizing the Maine individual health insurance market.”
If you happen to live in one of the other 45 states, don’t worry. The same administration that predicted its $787 billion so-called “stimulus” spending spree would keep unemployment below 8 percent predicts that you’ll be just fine.
Sweetheart deals for friends is nothing new when it comes to Obamacare. Just ask Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson or Louisiana Sen. Mary L. Landrieu, both Democrats, who struck their respective Cornhusker Kickback and Louisiana Purchase backroom deals. Or ask AARP. The interest organization for persons age 50 and older endorsed Obamacare - despite $500 billion in Medicare cuts - and was rewarded with a tax exemption on its highly lucrative Medigap policies. Or ask the American Medical Association. The AMA may represent just 17 percent of American doctors, but it endorsed Obamacare despite the fact that the majority of doctors oppose it, and the AMA will keep the government as a customer in its lucrative ICD-9 diagnosis-coding business.

Crossroads GPS, a conservative advocacy organization, just wanted to know about the waivers the Health and Human Services Department was issuing on health care reform. Claiming their Freedom of Information Act requests were getting stonewalled, the organization is suing. “Until President Obama is willing to grant the entire country a waiver from Obamacare, his administration needs to come clean on how they decide who wins and loses in the waiver lottery,” Steven Law, president of Crossroads GPS, said in a statement. Crossroads GPS and American Crossroads were key players in the midterm elections, raising millions for Republican congressional candidates.

Presidential candidate Barack Obama promised that his policies would cause electricity rates to “skyrocket” and “bankrupt” any company trying to build a coal-fired generating plant. This is one promise he and his über-regulators are keeping. President Obama energetically promotes wind and solar projects that require millions of acres of land and billions of dollars in subsidies, to generate expensive, intermittent electricity and create jobs that cost taxpayers upwards of $220,000 apiece – most of them in China. His Interior Department is locking up more coal and petroleum prospects, via “wild lands” and other designations, and dragging its feet on issuing...

Last Friday, the Congressional Budget Office scored President Obama’s ten-year budget plan. Their findings underscore a painful truth: The president is failing to engage in the kind of honest dialogue necessary to rally the country behind needed action. His budget — widely criticized for growing our gross debt by $13 trillion, swelling our bloated bureaucracy, and ignoring our surging entitlements — is so filled with gimmicks and manipulations that the CBO found an additional $2.3 trillion in deficits beyond what the White House projected. It is the most irresponsible spending plan put forward by a president in our time.

Bush left Obama with no choice but to bomb Libya. That much is clear. He made a decision that was open to debate in Congress. Obama was forced to tell Congress to go fuck themselves and that Libya had to be bombed.
