    now he goes after the latino vote and loses the country

    Romney wins in a landslide

  • UpAndOver

    Welcome to the USA, AKA, The Banana Republic del Norte….

    obama: I will let you stay…

    holder: I will let you vote…

    solis: I will let you work…

    usda: We give you Free Food Stamps and Cell Phone, it’s a ‘SNAP’…

    Health Care: It’s free, go to the ER you can’t be turned away….

    And be sure to vote for democrats…Enjoy


    “The regime today told the border agents: If you catch young illegals, let ’em go and grant ’em work permits. No more deportation of illegal immigrants. They are to be given work permits and they can stay in the country. So what this is is ‘Catch, Release, Vote.'” -Rush Limbaugh


    Media Pans Obama Cleveland Speech

    My friends, the Drive-By Media is in a state of shock. They’re depressed and disappointed. They’re fearful for the future. Barack Hussein Obama cannot even please them with speeches anymore. Do you realize what that does to them? The speech, speeches, that’s where he shows how smart he is! His ability to talk, it counts for so much. And I know that it does. The greater your vocabulary and the greater your ability to use it, for example, the greater the odds are you’ll convince people that you are intelligent and educated.

    No matter what you say, it’s how you say it. The right pauses, inflections. If you have the correct intonations and onomatopoeia and patterns of the elite Northeast, that’s all it takes. It doesn’t matter what you say. It’s like David Brooks. “I have never seen a sharper crease in a pant. That man’s going to be a great president!” Ah, it’s brilliant! What powers of observation Brooks must have. It doesn’t matter what you say. You have the proper, uh, pauses, uh, where you are thinking, uh, on your feet.


    RUSH: Back to the audio sound bites. Matt Lauer was on the Today show today with David Gregory, the host of Meet the Depressed. And they were having a discussion about the presidential race. And one of the points that we made yesterday is what they reflect here. You know, here’s Obama. He goes to Cleveland, but he doesn’t have do it in Cleveland. Wherever he goes, he blames Bush. What he’s really doing is saying he doesn’t have what it takes to fix the Bush mess. He’s been working at it for 3-1/2 years and it hadn’t gotten any better.

    By Obama’s own admission, his 3-1/2years have been worthless.

    Okay, so you want to lay all this off on Bush.

    He can’t, but he does.

    “Lay it all off on Bush! It’s worse than we thought it was gonna be. My predecessor made all these mistakes!” Well, you’ve been trying to fix it for 3-1/2 years. You can’t do it. Reagan got us out of a recession in two years in the ’80s. Obama’s out running around, “Well, these recoveries need ten years sometimes. Look at Europe.” So these guys at NBC, I don’t know if they were listening yesterday or not, but they’re picking up on this theme and the way we framed it yesterday: If you haven’t fixed it yet, why should you get four more years to fix it?


    LAUER: How does Barack Obama go out there on the campaign trail and say, “I can do, in the next four years, what I have failed to accomplish in the last three and a half?”

    GREGORY: I mean, if it comes down to that, Matt, it’s a bad day for him. Mitt Romney is running the campaign he wants to run, which is just a referendum. “You’re not happy about the economy? This guy’s been there for four years. Vote him out of office. You need an alternative president.” What the president’s got to do is say, “Hey, don’t forget about George W. Bush!”

    RUSH: Matt Lauer then continued…

    LAUER: The question is, 3-1/2 years into an administration, do you think that strategy works — the blame-Bush strategy — or do people want you to take ownership of this economy at this stage?

    GREGORY: They want you to take ownership. I think the argument is that they’ve gotta prevail in providing context, saying, “Look, it’s not about blaming the previous president. It’s that the — the hill was so high to climb, and we’re making some progress. But the hole is so, so deep.”

    RUSH: Oh, give me a break!

    You people are embarrassing yourselves the way you’re going out of your way to make excuses for this guy. Because the truth of the matter is in Matt Lauer’s first observation: “Oh, you want to lay it all on Bush. Okay. You’ve had 3-1/2 years, and by your own admission you can’t fix it. So why should we give you four more years?” And Gregory, who probably hadn’t heard that perspective, said, “Oh, oh! No! Matt, if it comes down to that, it’s a bad day for Obama.” It’s been a bad 3-1/2 years for America, Mr. Gregory.


    On CBS, they do the same thing. Charlie Rose has his weekly gaggle with Bob Schieffer of Slay the Nation. So Charlie Rose said to Bob Schieffer, “Bob, where are we now in terms of how you see these two competing proposals for fixing the economy? Where are we, Bob? The president, on the one hand, saying, ‘I need more time.'” Yeah, how many people in this country do you think were wandering around yesterday and last night saying, “I can’t wait for CBS tomorrow for Bob Schieffer to tell us how to fix the economy”?


    Skip the falsehoods, Mr. President, and give us a plan.

    By Dana Milbank, Published: June 14

    I had high hopes for President Obama’s speech on the economy. But instead of going to Ohio on Thursday with a compelling plan for the future, the president gave Americans a falsehood wrapped in a fallacy.

    The falsehood is that he has been serious about cutting government spending. The fallacy is that this election will be some sort of referendum that will break the logjam in Washington.



    President Obama’s Speech Gets A Thumbs Down From Political Press Corps

    Despite the hype, the speech was mainly a rehash of themes and ideas from the president’s recent stump speeches and his remarks were widely panned as overly long by the political press corps.

    Before the speech was over, MSNBC’s Mike O’Brien begged the president to stop.


    “My friends, the Drive-By Media is in a state of shock. They’re depressed and disappointed. They’re fearful for the future. Barack Hussein Obama cannot even please them with speeches anymore.” -Rush Limbaugh


    “Pelosi just tweeted, ‘Strongly support President’s decision to stop deporting DREAM Act kids. Democratic-led House passed DREAM in 2010. GOP still obstructing.’ So because the Republicans who run the place are ‘obstructing’ and didn’t pass the DREAM Act, she’s happy that Obama bypassed Congress. Shameless. They don’t care. It’s who they are.” -Rush




    What is it with Barack Obama and 27 months? Listen to the president and his aides talk, and you’ll soon hear claims that the administration has accomplished great things in the last 27 months

    The problem, of course, is that Barack Obama has been president for 40 months. So why do he and his supporters speak as if he has only been in the White House for the last 27 — that is, since March 2010? It’s as if the first third of Obama’s presidency just doesn’t count.



    The Internal Revenue Service is expected to use $881 million of taxpayers’ money to implement the first four years of Obamacare, including about $500 million that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) diverted to the agency, according to a federal audit.

    The new Government Accountability Office (GAO) audit refers to ObamaCare – the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which became law in March 2010 – as a “significant effort for IRS.”
