    The biggest clown on Earth does it again.

    Bite me Biden does this:

    Biden congratulates accused child rapist who withdrew from Delaware state Senate race

    Vice President Joe Biden, fresh from a re-election campaign that featured gaffes and goofs galore, made what might be the more cringe-inducing blunder of the year on Nov. 19, sending a congratulatory letter to a Republican state Senate candidate who withdrew from his race in October.

    Worse, Delaware’s Eric Bodenweiser didn’t just have a change of heart: He was indicted on 113 felony counts related to accusations he raped a boy 39 times between 1987 and 1990 — beginning when the victim, now in his 30s, was 13 years old.

    Tweet of Yesterday —

    Andy Levy: Bob Costas, who’s gotten rich, thanks in part to a sport that destroys men’s bodies and brains, gives us a little civics lecture.

  • lbsles

    A great visualizing of what obumbles is doing to the countries financials.

    The Fiscal Cliff is set to reduce the 2013 US Government budget deficit by roughly half; will remove $607 Billion from economy (GDP), resulting in 4% drop, pushing it back into recession; it can NOT be avoided. It must happen to fix the budget deficit; any delay must be paid for later; it will NOT reduce the US debt, only slow down the growth. The Fiscal Cliff’s (new taxes and budget cuts) size and impact are visualized below in physical $100 bills.

    Good Morning!
    Good Luck Coffee! I am back in the office today cane in hand! Pinched nerve which means a numb thigh and shooting pain down the side of my leg…………..but other than that………….I am JUST GREAT!!
    I get a kick out of all these lefties crowing about the MSDNC ratings and how Obama and his gang of idiots are large and in charge. The reason the ratings are up is because all MSDNC talks about is the great savior Obama and his wonderful plans of gifts for all and then bash the evil right and how they are the evil force. If they started reporting what REALLY is gong on the viewers would turn it off in a heartbeat because they dont want to know what is real. But wait until we start to crumble in bigger chuncks, the left wont know what to do!
    Lets see………the election is 4 weeks ago and the great Obama has played golf 3 times already and scheduled a 20 day vacation in Hawaii not to mention a two day swing to do some more campaining (Pssssst, the election is over! You WON!). I guess the economic future isnt as big of priority as one would think!

    Good luck! Have your dentist put CNN on a monitor for you; it substitutes for sadatives. But… rest of them?? Is your dentist trying to make you look like Hillbilly? (j/k) Seriously though, it probably is no big deal these days with dental implants; still I can’t imagine how it’s done without major trauma to the mouth.

    Obama and Slick Willie played golf this weekend. When it was all in and done Slick willie had an 18 for a score and Obama said he had a 17! Clinton asked how the heck he did that and Obama said he was entitled to a free hole!!!!

    Obama Campaign Still Asking for Contributions

    In what he called “my last election,” President Barack Obama scored a hard-fought but comfortable victory over Mitt Romney last month, but that doesn’t mean his email list will no longer be hit up for campaign cash. To wit, Mr. Obama’s electoral operation, Obama for America, is asking their supporters to contribute after filling out a form backing his plan to increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans.

    “Thanks for sharing your story. The next chapter begins today. Stand with President Obama for the next four years,” a subsequent contribution form declares. Suggested donation amounts range from $15 to $1,000 and a picture of Mr. Obama is presented with the text, “Stand with me, work with me, let’s finish what we’ve started.”

    It’s not a surprise Mr. Obama’s operations are still moving forward in some form; his campaign manager, Jim Messina, had already publicly signaled that Obama for America would continue to exist.

    “The one thing I know is that people want to be involved in supporting the president’s agenda in the next four years,” he said at a POLITICO breakfast after the election. “How that looks is a discussion we have to have with our grassroots.”

    However, Mr. Messina did indicate the fundraising itself will change.

    “I think anything’s possible,” he explained. “What’s true is just from FEC law, the campaign needs to shut down. We cannot expend funds for non-presidential activities. So we have got to figure out what we do next. That’s a conversation we’re having with our supporters now.”

    Obama Aide: With These Republicans, There’d Still Be Slavery

    What party wanted slavery to continue during the Civil War?

    Chuck Todd relayed the comments of an Obama aide on Monday morning’s ‘Morning Joe’ on MSNBC:

    CHUCK TODD: You’re going to like this. So, I threw the Lincoln analogy at a close aide to the president last week, and he said, ‘You know, with this Republican, with the way politics of Washington are today, there’d still be slavery. Lincoln wouldn’t have been able to navigate the polarization between the media between this–’ It was an interesting and depressing observation from this very smart White House aide.
