    Yep this is the platform to run on!

    Mika Brzezinski: ‘I’m Hoping’ Blaming Bush Will Work

    We’ve gone from “hope and change” to hoping blaming Bush will work. As Joe Scarborough said: at least Mika Brzezinski’s honest about it. Asked whether she believed that President Obama’s attempt to continue to blame George W. Bush for the country’s economic woes will work as a campaign strategy, a seemingly dispirited Mika Brzezinski replied: “well, I’m hopin'”. Scarborough burst into laughter.

    The Morning Joe panel was responding to a clip of President Obama from yesterday in which he analogized Republicans to people who had ordered an expensive restaurant meal, left just as Obama was sitting down to dinner, and then finding himself accused of running up the tab.

    Looks like we’ve gone from “hope and change” to Dems listlessly hoping that a pass-the-buck, blame-the-other-guy strategy might work for President Obama. After playing the clip of President Obama’s restaurant analogy, Willie Geist and Mike Barnicle expressed skepticism that it would be a successful campaign strategy for PBO. Joe Scarborough then turned to Mika.

    JOE SCARBOROUGH: What do you think, Mika? Do you think, do you think it’ll work: blaming George Bush?

    MIKA BRZEZINSKI: A-h-h-h, well, I’m hopin’. But I think it’s a tough sell. And I still don’t know what the freakin’ metaphor is —

    SCARBOROUGH [bursting into laughter]: At least she’s honest about it!

  • dana

    Obama tried to run his Camelot like they do in Chicago and although it worked for the first term, his administration is starting to look like a dirty kitchen with the roaches running when the lights get turned on…

  • dana

    Yes, Mika showed her true colors this morning and the true colors of the liberal left..it really doesnt matter how good the repubs are and what they can accomplish, its about making them look bad as the bottom line….although i am a repub., when Obama won, if he did a great job for America, my country, i would sing him praises…because thats the bottom line….

  • Coffee Steve

    Even a leading Democratic Party leader in Kentucky is not impressed with still blaming Bush, he was asked on WHAS (Talk Radio) about it

    His response was refreshingly honest, “No one wants to hear the I blame them game anymore, they want to hear how are you going to fix it” And the questions I get at town halls are “Why hasn’t the policies in place now and the past few years been working?”

    Guys? They say President Obama has to veer away from the economy to have even a chance at winning agian, I say the opposite, he should announce his plans, move to the middle, stop the over the top spending, and the regulations that are destroying small businesses, and if he did that? Watch how the public would respond.

  • dana

    Coffee Steve:: Yes, if Obama did a Bill Clinton, he would be re-elected but Obama is a staunch and stubborn idiologue with alot of arrogance and feels that he knows better what America needs than the people or his advisors…because it has always worked for him in the past…Obama is no Bill Clinton….

  • Jeff

    Ron Barber wins the special election to serve out fmr. Rep. Gabby Giffords’ term.

    North Dakota voters overwhelmingly reject a ballot initiative that would have let people act or refuse to act because of religious beliefs.

    Michigan Republicans passed three bills yesterday to make voting harder. In particular, the legislation makes it harder to run a voter-registration drive.

    If its gonna be a landslide why all the obstruction efforts to block minorities and democratic voters from voting???
    Because the GOP leadership knows Romney sucks and not a effective political leader President Obama will prove it!!

  • Scroll the Troll

    Chicago politics only “worked” in Chicago. If the Chicago model had been really successful all major cities would be using this style of government. Obama trying to run the WH like Chicago has been an ultimate fail IMO.

  • dana

    By the way:: If a citizen of the US is truly a citizen, and is asked to prove it to vote in an election that millions of Americans have died to make that right a reality then that is NOT voter suppression that is voter Regulations….i thought the libs love regulations…the libs make it difficult to get a large coca cola but not to protect honest voting in the greatest democracy in history…by the way, repubs will have the same regulations as the monorities…

    I think you need to provide a wee bit mor info on this. Your MSNBC like blurb out of context may be a bit misleading.

  • Jeff

    Per your request mr Ratboy!!!

    Michigan Republicans passed three bills yesterday to make voting harder. In particular, the legislation makes it harder to run a voter-registration drive.

    As has been their custom this year, House Republicans passed the legislation under immediate effect over the objections of the minority Democrats. That means the legislation could become law this year instead of waiting until 2013. Using immediate effect, Republicans could make it harder to vote in the November election. Under the state Constitution, immediate effect requires a two-thirds super-majority — in the House, that’s 73 votes.

    Democratic Representative Jeff Irwin forwarded the cellphone video above from one of the votes, on Senate Bill 0754. As you can see from the House website, it passed with 66 votes, well shy of 73.

    In the video, Irwin says, you can see Democrats trying three different ways to get recognized for a roll call vote on the motion for immediate effect, which would make Republicans prove they have enough votes. The state Constitution requires a roll call vote, if requested by one-fifth of the members present (22 if everyone’s there). In the video, the Democratic floor leader is standing at the podium in a purple jacket with her hand raised, asking to be recognized. Several members of the Democratic caucus are standing with their hands raised. And off to the side, another Democrat — I think the woman in the rose-colored jacket — is trying to hand the Republican Speaker a letter from the caucus requesting a roll call vote.

    Seconds later, purporting to have counted 73 yes votes in a room that passed the measure with only 66, the Speaker gavels in immediate effect. The legislation now moves to the Senate for further consideration.

    Also today in Michigan, the House is expected to vote on sweeping anti-abort!ion legislation. We’ll keep you posted.

    Hey republicans!!! Where are the jobs???

  • Coffee Steve

    Anyone else gettin alittle tired of Uncle Sam’s idiocy?


    This country is on the verge of insanity anymore.

    This is hitting the wires as we speak…

    *Greeks Withdraw $1 Billion a Day Ahead of Vote…

    Greeks pulled their cash out of the banks and stocked up with food ahead of a cliffhanger election on Sunday that many fear will result in the country being forced out of the euro.

    This tells me or anyone else for that matter nothing. What are they doing to make voting harder? This looks to be from another one of your left wing sites that fail to share the REAL information but instead set up the scare.

    Good Morning Darling I do miss those I75 drives through your beautiful state

    Aren’t you the sweet talker this morning. You wouldn’t be trying to obfuscate the issue , would you ?


    I don’t watch Shep but catching glimpses of him here & there, I thought he looked sick for a long time. I’d also agree , he’s starting to look a bit better, but, he’s still the same smart alec he always was. Plus, he’s used the F word more than once on the air.


    Postal Service to ‘Look Like Greece’


    The U.S. Postal Service “will look like Greece” if Congress fails to help it cut costs, U.S. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said.

    We all hate to see further eroding of American jobs, but, with email , text messaging , Skype , etc. , there is just less mail going through USPS. For those that proclaim to be green …. less paper mail to save trees & less fuel for mail delivery would help our environment.

    About 78 percent of the service’s expenses are labor costs, including the 20 percent of the total that pays for future retiree health-care expenses and other health-care benefits, Donahoe said.

    “We need less expensive work hours, and we need more flexibility on who can do what jobs,” Donahoe said in his speech. “Nobody can operate with 1940 work rules in a 2020 environment.”


    Speaking of Greece, keep in mind, this could be us down the road.

    Seeds of Anger Sown in a Greek Soup Kitchen

    …. “Yet the 1,200 who waited for bread, rice and vegetable soup at a kitchen visited by CNBC this week are just a fraction of the many hungry people in Athens and the surrounding area, as the noose of austerity tightens around the Greek population.

    The elderly and sick are fed first. Men get their food next, and there are plenty of scuffles in the line as women and children wait patiently for their turn.

    Emotions run from quiet despair to rage.”


    Reuters) – Retail sales fell for a second straight month in May and wholesale prices dropped by the most in three years, raising prospects of additional monetary policy easing from the Federal Reserve to spur economic growth.

    A QE3 is a temporary boost , just like Q1&2 were.

    @d.d.Aren’t you the sweet talker this morning. You wouldn’t be trying to obfuscate the issue , would you ?
    Is there an issue?

    Simply, When I think of all the wonderful states people post from, I occasionally think to the most wonderful experiences while traveling to or through that state. Kentucky & Pennsylvania happen to be two of the most beautiful drives I always enjoyed.
    Ohio & Indiana the least ;)

    Holder is the Stone Waller General for the Campaigner in Chief

    Holder Refuses to Provide Testimony on Kagan’s Involvement in Obamacare

    – Attorney General Eric Holder has refused to provide written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee in response to “questions for the record” submitted to him by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R.-Ala.) that focus on Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan’s involvement in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act–AKA Obamacare–while she was President Barack Obama’s solicitor general.

    Question: “Are you aware of any instances during Justice Kagan’s tenure as Solicitor General of the United States in which information related to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and/or litigation related thereto was relayed or provided to her?”

    Question: “When did your staff begin ‘removing’ Solicitor General Kagan from meetings in this matter? On what basis did you take this action? In what other matters was such action taken?”

    Question: “Did you ever have a conversation with Justice Kagan regarding her recusal from matters before the Supreme Court related to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act? If so, please describe the circumstances and substance of those conversations.”

    These are three of the eight questions that Sessions submitted to Holder on Nov. 15, 2011 to be included as part of the official record of Holder’s testimony in an oversight hearing that the Senate Judiciary Committee held on Nov. 8, 2011. Sessions is a senior member of the committee.

    Holder did not provide the committee with a formal response to Session’s questions until June 7, 2012—seven months after Sessions submitted them.

    When he finally did officially respond, Holder did not answer any of the questions.

  • Jeff

    Dear Dana, look it up yourself!

    Beyond a shadow of a doubt I feel the same way about your empty opinion posts. No desire to deal with you and your blather today. So just scroll past and “get off” on something else.

    You just made a huge contradiction in criticizing me for details, yet you watch Fox. Lmao!

    Have a wonderful day!
