Obama: ObamaCare Not My Fault, it’s GOP’s Fault

Folks, this is the sublime beauty of having someone like Barack Obama leading the DEM Party. His lack of taking ownership of his Flag Ship ObamaCare POS is beyond PRICELESS. It’s like it’s right out of a sermon for life long liberals who bob their heads up and down on cue.

The 110th DEM Majority Congress and Barack Obama owns ObamaCare stem to stern, soup to nuts, top to bottom, inside and out, to hell and back, for eternity.

What The One had to say…

“I made the decision to go ahead and do it. And, it proved as costly politically as we expected. Probably actually a little more costly than we had expected… Partly because I couldn’t get the kind of cooperation from Republicans that I hoped for. We thought that if we shaped a bill that wasn’t that different from previous bills that had introduced by Republicans, including the Republican governor in Massachusetts who’s now running for president, that we would be able to find some common ground there and we just couldn’t.”

“if we shaped a bill that wasn’t that different from previous bills that had introduced by Republicans.” Oh? What bills would that be? The only thing anywhere close to ObamaCare is HillaryCare and that was a rejected DEM Owned POS also.

Oh? Deval Patrick, Governor of Massachusetts who just won re-election is running for president? News to me, Barack-Breath! Ohhhh… you mean Mitt Romney? Who is neither the governor of Massachusetts nor running for president? No one has announced they are running for president in 2012 except you, Bar.

You expected “cooperation” from GOP lawmakers on ObamaCare? When pigs fly, you did. What have you been snorting in the White House to think this newest spin will help you or Pelosi/Reid going forward? Your favored dope of choice?

Every person in this country who watches politics knows full well Obama’s approach to what he calls bi-partisanship; I won, you lost — my way or the highway.

From his own lips…

It appears there are signs of clinical insanity in Obama’s behavior.
Remember Cap’t Queeg – Cain Mutiny?

    Good morning VF!

    Good morning M2!

    Did I miss anybody?

    I had fun last night and ended up doing my house work till 2:00am. I’m on vacation. But I don’t want to wack out my schedule too much.

  10. Foxwood says:

    My computer is still not seeing Youtube clips. I’m going to have to reboot sometime today. I haven’t decided what to reboot yet, but I’m sure it requires putting the boot on to get it done…

  11. Foxwood says:

    VF! Your ghost is still on the side bar! She is a cute ghost.

  12. VotingFemale says:

    Good Morning M2! Foxwood!

    Yeah ghostie girl needs to be tucked away for next Halloween.

  13. m2 says:

    VF, my daughter really likes that ghost graphic, lol…

    What are you doing on vacation fox? Going anywhere?

  14. VotingFemale says:

    And, I have some serious sidebar re-work to do.

  15. Foxwood says:

    M2, I have a big house, lots of work to do. I never have time to do it. I tried before to schedule what I was going to do on my time off, but what happened was I would get disappointed for not getting what I wanted done. So now I just pick a project and do it till it’s done or I have something else come up. Old houses are full of surprises.

  16. VotingFemale says:

    Have you thought about printing it for her? It is a cute pic.

  18. Foxwood says:

    Hmmm… The computer still doesn’t see the youtube vids after the reboot. Don’t know what happened, It was after a day of playing videos. I don’t have time to fix it now tho.

    Anyone listening to Glenn? He’s playing sound bites of people outright saying they are Socialists and Communists. Tomorrows TV show till Thursday will be about George Soros.

  19. m2 says:

    VF, I am copy/pasting this from a note on Facebook, I think it will supplement the blogpost!!

    I’m taking the Time to Write this Note on ObamaCare due to the Fact that Some Liberals I Know Who Claim to be “Moderate” or “Independent” but Voted Democrat this Mid term Elections still Believe that ObamaCare “Isn’t ALL Bad” and “Can be Fixed”. No it Can’t. I Will Prove without a Shadow of a doubt that a Bad Bill is a Bad Bill. It Needs to be Defunded, Repealed and Replaced with FREE MARKET SOLUTIONS instead of this Monster Trainwreck Disaster We have Called ObamaCare.

    First off. Congress Would’ve Exempted Themselves from ObamaCare if they Could. I Wonder why that is? I Think We ALL Know why that is. It’s Not as close as Good as What they already have now. They Didn’t Want to be Forced to have what everyone is BEING FORCED TO HAVE?

    The Coburn Amendment to HELP bill would require Congress to use Public Plan. http://www.modernhealthcare.com/article/20090714/REG/307149981#

    Second. Obama & the Democrats Couldn’t have recieved Support from the Government employees and Major Labor Unions without Exempting them from having to give up their “Cadiallac Plans” for the ObamaCare BEING FORCED ON US.


    Third. Since So Many are getting these Exemptions and waivers…Why Not give out a Few waivers to McDonalds and 29 Other Companies like Jack in the Box Inc. and the United Federation of Teachers, won’t be required to raise the minimum annual benefit included in low- cost health plans covering seasonal, part-time or low-wage employees. The Department of Health and Human Services said it granted waivers in late September so workers with minimum plans would keep coverage without major premium increases.




    But Let’s Forget about Who is Exempt and Who gets Waivers to Focus and Concentrate on the Elderly. The Elderly Must Really Love this ObamaCare Idea. Right? Not the Elderly Who Dropped AARP for Supporting ObamaCare. The Some 60,000 Elderly People Quit AARP after finding out AARP was Endorsing ObamaCare.

    I Wonder Why that is? How can that be?


    The News just gets Worse for the Elderly with this News:

    Obamacare spurs AARP to raise premiums http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/nov/4/obamacare-spurs-aarp-to-raise-premiums/

    Call Me Crazy but I Think it could be from All of the Regulations Agencies that are coming our way through ObamaCare. Watch this Video which Shows just How Many there will be!


    20 States Want to Block ObamaCare from their States. Those 20 states involved in this lawsuit are: (Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Idaho, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Washington) along with the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). A Federal Court Judge has allowed the 20-state challenge to Obamacare to go forward ruling against the Obama Justice Department challenge in a motion to dismiss. http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=39429

    Or Maybe it’s What else is Hidden inside this Monsterous Nightmare that has them & Everyone Freaking out. And Rightfully so!


    When the Federal Government Calls for 16,500 MORE IRS Agents that are Needed to Enforce ObamaCare, I Think that is a BIG Problem and a Huge RED Flag!


    ObamaCare Must be Great for Small Businesses though Right? It’s Really Not!

    The current 1099 regulations require the reporting of earnings to the IRS on workers that make more than $600 in a calendar year but aren’t considered an employee of that company. Usually, these are given to contract workers that intermittently perform small jobs for a company.

    Most small-business owners file about 10 of these 1099s a year without much fanfare or thought about the process or cost. This will change come Jan. 1, 2012 when the new ObamaCare 1099 provision comes into full force. It’s at this time that your small-business owner will be required to fill out a 1099 not just for contract laborers, but also for any person, company, or entity from whom they purchased more than $600 in goods or services in a calendar year. Experts agree that most small businesses will now be required to fill out more than 200 1099s on average each year and are required by law to send one to the vendor and the IRS.

    This will cost the small-business owner thousands of dollars in record keeping and accounting fees to ensure compliance. The real cost will be the newly increased fines this Small Business lending bill will now charge for failure to file a 1099 for each vendor or improper completion of the form.

    The Small Business Jobs and Credit Act of 2010 contains within it new penalties imposed on the small business dreamer by their elected representatives.

    If a 1099 is filed incorrectly, a fine up to $100 is assessed for each occurrence. The maximum aggregate penalty was $250,000; this bill raises it to $1.5 million. If you don’t fill out a 1099 for every vendor, then a fine of $250 per occurrence is imposed. http://www.boogai.net/economics/the-small-business-jobs-and-credit-act-will-kill-american-jobs/

    Obama & the Dems had to Protect Medicare through all of this ObamaCare Process Right? I’m afraid Not.

    They Thought it’d be a Better Idea to cut $500 Billion Dollars out of Medicare.

    The Congressional majority wants to pay for its $1 trillion to $1.6 trillion health bills with new taxes and a $500 billion cut to Medicare. This cut will come just as baby boomers turn 65 and increase Medicare enrollment by 30%. Less money and more patients will necessitate rationing. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that only 1% of Medicare cuts will come from eliminating fraud, waste and abuse.

    The assault against seniors began with the stimulus package in February. Slipped into the bill was substantial funding for comparative effectiveness research, which is generally code for limiting care based on the patient’s age.


    But what about Medicare Advantage?


    ObamaCare Doesn’t Look Very Good for ANY American. No Wonder 48% of those Registered Voters Wanted Congress to Repeal ObamaCare.

    Notice I Said Repeal it! NOT Tweak it! Or Adjust it or Fix it! It Needs to be Defunded, Repealed and Replaced with Free Market Solutions that Benefit Everyone INCLUDING TORT REFORM! Forget about the Trial Lawyers!

    How to defund Obamacare. You read it here first.

    Set forth in this article:


    which is supportive of Obamacare, is the strategy for defunding Obamcare.

    The relevant part:

    Repeal of the ACA before 2013is unlikely. Both houses of Congress would have to enact repeal legislation, which President Barack Obama would surely veto. Then,two thirds of both houses would have to vote to override that veto. After 2012, however, repeal could occur if Republicans win the White House and both houses of Congress and stick by their pledge.

  20. Foxwood says:

    Yeah, VF, still not showing.

    All of these sound bites on Glenns show are from MFNBC. He’s got this Socialist saying Obutthole needs an Oklahoma City.

    hey VF, I just posted a comment with many links so I think it is ‘awaiting moderation’….

    That happened today, Sami?

  31. VotingFemale says:

    Interesting Vid, Sami. this one is a wait and see situation in my view… which way the winds blows.

    Fox, re-installing Firefox fixed it? dang… there are problems with java I see, but never have I had to resort to a re-install. The primary OS for Mozilla was unix at the onset. perhaps they now target MS as the primary OS and cross-compile for unix/linux.

  32. Foxwood says:

    Now that I remember, yesterday there was an update and it takes no time to update. That’s when the problems started.

    My kitty cat wants me… She’s been biting me on the head.

    Robert Gibbs’ Fury With Indian Security Triggers Physical Confrontation

    Robert Gibbs has done it again. Remember when he flipped out in Copenhagen over restrictions on U.S. reporters? Look for that video at the bottom of this post. Today’s encounter takes us to India where a similar scenario had Gibbs apoplectic.

    When Indian officials refused to back down, Gibbs intervened, announcing on the steps of the Hyderabad House, the main venue at the Indian equivalent of Camp David, that he would pull Obama out of his bilateral meeting with Singh unless “the White House 8” were allowed inside.

    At one point, according to Wilson’s pool report, Gibbs had his foot lodged in the door to the meeting as Indian security officials pushed hard to shut it. In an angry shouting match, Gibbs asked the officials if they were going to break his foot as he repeated his threat to pull Obama.

    Only then did officials take him seriously and allow all eight reporters inside.

    The incident follows repeated confrontations between Indian security and the White House press corps since Obama arrived in the country on Saturday.


  35. Foxwood says:

    Please turn on Glenn Beck radio show NOW!

  36. Foxwood says:

    Glenn first read the Disney version of The Three Little Pigs. Then Pat read the Grimms Fairy Tales version. Grimms is brutal. Next Glenn read Rudyard Kiplings “Gods of the Copybook Heading”, explained it for what it is, Progressivism, and drew a parallel to Grimms Fairy Tales.

    Please get ready for bad times, if you are not already.

    More three little pigs tomorrow on Glenn Beck radio.

  37. Bob Mack says:

    Greetings to the Resistance. I see where China’s not reacting well to the latest adventure in counterfeiting by the Fed. Guess not, they’re the ones holding bagfuls of devalued bucks. LOL at the Obama quote you cited, VF:

    “it [Obamacare] proved as costly politically as we expected”

    Costly politically? They insisted Obamacare was going to be as popular as a new federal holiday. The O’s q & a video in India was also pretty funny. His knowledge of history appears somewhat sparse. Paki used to be the old Northwest Frontier in the days of the Raj. It was always volatile, because it was always filled with jihadists. I think the only college classes Obama ever passed were B.S. 101 and Freshman Community Organizing.

  38. Foxwood says:

    And I take it the Community Organizing Classes was the class they now call Communism. He was well indoctrinated before he got into that class. Passed with flying colors (or just Red) and was the head of the class.

  39. VotingFemale says:

    Bob, the Messiah is mortally wounded politically and slowly bleeding out. He was ill-prepared for the totality of rejection and scorn here and world wide.

    He falls like a bag of potatoes…

  40. Foxwood says:

    Rush: Republicans are making a move to get WV Senator Manchin to switch parties.

    Obama is at this point a used car salesman trying to sell a junker to India while you can get a new one for the same price.
    He is trying to get them to invest in America, when China is ready to put the stops on buying any more of our debt.
    Europe is telling us to stop printing money.
    2 more years of this crap, with Obama unrestrained, will devastate this nation.
    The elected GOP better show us what they got real soon, or we the people have failed to make the first step to take our country back.

    President Obama isolated ahead of 2012
    By MIKE ALLEN & JIM VANDEHEI | 11/8/10 4:30 AM EST Updated: 11/8/10 10:12 AM EST

    President Barack Obama has performed his act of contrition. Now comes the hard part, according to Democrats around the country: reckoning with the simple fact that he’s isolated himself from virtually every group that matters in American politics.

  48. Foxwood says:

    Good afternoon Arlene!

    Good afternoon AFVET!

    I thought everyone left me on Election night. That’s why I took off. I came back Wed. morning and saw everybody came back. I thought it was my bad breath. 🙂

  49. arlenearmy says:

    Afternooon Fox & everybody.

    Do y’all think Obama is trying to hurt the printer business. Good thing I bought all cartridges for my laser printer yesterday. I better stock up for rest of my printers.

    The shipment ban on receipt of ink cartridges really sucks because EVERY computer related item is made & shipped from overseas. Y’all see where I’m headed w/this?

  50. arlenearmy says:

    I wonder that if Biden takes over, does that mean Boehner becomes VP?

    And if something happens 2 Biden, whose gonna take Boehner’s place when Boehner takes the presidency?

  51. Foxwood says:

    VF, I got your email, I’ll respond shortly, I’ve got work in my garage to finish be for Beck. Gold is up for the first time to $1400 and silver is at 27.75. This worries me bad.

  52. VotingFemale says:

    I know EXACTLY what that is… it’s not just Army jargon… but also USAF… hear it from Dad many times…

    Bob Mack says

    HA! Obama’s like S.O.S, the old Army breakfast.

  53. VotingFemale says:

    Speculation on precious metals indicates fear or expectation of inflation.
    printing bogus money by the FED is capable of eating us alive.

    Obama may face impeachment if he does not cool it, Arlene, AFVET, Bob, Fox.

  54. Obama is obsessive-compulsive about trying to blame the GOP about nearly everything. This kind of whining grows tedious to most who hear him, I think.

    Did anybody hear about assclown Olbermann?? MSNBC should keep that crack head off the air. I think we can all agree on that. lol

  58. Foxwood says:

    Belle, MFNBC is a joke and so is Ogerman. I’m thinking MFNBC has to be a tax write off for NBS/GE.

    Good evening Alwalys! Pleasure to meet you! Please make your way back.

  59. ohiobelle says:

    Well over the weekend, an advocacy group called the Progressive Change Campaign Committee delivered 300,000 online signatures demanding Olbermann’s return to the network.

    I guess Barry handed over his list of dead people to help the assclown out. I don’t think assclown as 300,000 viewers.

    The Great Transmission Heist
    The latest scheme to subsidize solar and wind power to the detriment of rate payers.

    How would you like to pay higher utility bills to finance expensive electricity from solar and wind power, which you would never use? That’s the issue now before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and it deserves more public and political scrutiny before it becomes a reality.

    FERC has a draft rule that could effectively socialize the costs of paying for multi-billion dollar transmission lines to connect remote wind and solar projects to the nation’s electric power grid. If FERC rules in favor of Big Wind and Big Solar, the new policy would add billions of dollars onto the utility …

    The magnitude of the totality of the STOMPING received by DEM politicians at the local, county, state, and federal levels is almost incomprehensible for many to grasp… but you can be SURE, the DEM politicians grasp it and collectively turned white in total shock. That they were shocked tells you something… a total disconnect from the pulse of this country at all levels. Overall, DEM Blacks played a big part in this STOMP and voted with their feet, stayed away from the polls in silent potent and blistering protest against the DEMs.

    It has always been a good idea to have non-perishable food stores. Primary staples like flour, yeast, sugar, dried beans, rice, dried beef and fish, corn meal, powered milk, canned lard, and such and soap products and ample basic first aid supplies. Collapsible water containers and purification tablets, a protapotty and it’s supplies are are all good. Vegetable seeds are important and easy and small to store such as corn and other veggies.

    If circumstances permit, having chickens and a goat or two. I have raised chickens and love them… also milked goats and the milk is good.

    I can stretch these things for a very long time. Being able to make bread is simple and powerful and given a makeshift wood fired oven, easy to do.

    Mysterious missile launched off California coast?
    Nov 9, 2010 10:53am

    (NECN/KCBS/KCAL) – It wasn’t a bird or a plane, actually, officials are not sure what it was, just yet.

    In this video you can see something going into the air — a red trail of smoke — off the coast of Southern California, near Los Angeles on Monday night.

    A spokesperson for the Navy says no activities were planned in the area at that time.

    On Friday night, Vandenberg Air Force says it sent a rocket skyward, but an official says there have been no launches since then.

    Local media showed the video to former Deputy Secretary of Defense and former U.S. Ambassador to NATO Robert Ellsworth.

    He said Americans should wait for answers from the military


    What kind of lies will be hear? The time of day was 5pm, so it wasn’t secret. An advisor said it was a show of force to the east. Why would we have a show of force 30 miles off of our coast? Wouldn’t we have a show of force 30 miles off of our enemies coast?

    Obama acknowledges decline of US dominance
    TNN, Nov 8, 2010, 01.14am IST

    MUMBAI: Implicitly acknowledging the decline of American dominance, Barack Obama on Sunday said the US was no longer in a position to “meet the rest of the world economically on our terms”.

    Speaking at a town hall meeting in Mumbai, he said, “I do think that one of the challenges that we are going face in the US, at a time when we are still recovering from the financial crisis is, how do we respond to some of the challenges of globalisation? The fact of the matter is that for most of my lifetime and I’ll turn 50 next year – the US was such an enormously dominant economic power, we were such a large market, our industry, our technology, our manufacturing was so significant that we always met the rest of the world economically on our terms. And now because of the incredible rise of India and China and Brazil and other countries, the US remains the largest economy and the largest market, but there is real competition.”

    Re: the missile launch. Those were pretty substantial contrails, and it was only 35 miles off the coast. With all the sophisticated tracking devices we have, if nobody in officialdom knows anything about it, then somebody needs to be fired. But I don’t believe their disavowals for a blue second. If it was a mystery launch, unless we’ve gone completely incompetent, you can believe that area would’ve been swarmed with fighters, destroyers, and subs. Therefore, it was a military operation conducted for unknown reasons.

  140. Liberty says:

    Darlin’, it was on the resistance. here is a bit to wet your appetite. Heck you guys may have already seen this.


    Rahm Emanuel, chief of staff. Resigned effective October 1, 2010.
    Retired General James Jones, National Security Adviser. Resignation announced on October 8, 2010.
    Ellen Moran, Communications Director, left in April 2009, however, the leaks indicate the Obama “Deep Throat” had more recent access to the Oval Office. Moran is now chief of Staff to Commerce Secretary Gary Locke.
    Van Jones, special adviser for “Green Jobs.” Left in September 2009, again, too early to have been privy to later inside information.
    Mark Lippert, deputy national security adviser. Left in October 2009 and went from reserve to active status in the US Navy. Lippert was a “pick-up basketball” partner of Obama during the campaign.
    David Ogden, Deputy Attorney General. Resigned in February 2010.
    Greg Craig, White House Counsel. Craig was forced to announce his resignation in November 2009. Although November 2009 was also possibly too early for Craig to be the source, he is a consummate Washington insider who may continue to be privy to information from within the Oval Office and West Wing.
    Peter Orszag, Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Resigned in June 2010. Like Craig, a strong possibility.
    Retired Admiral Dennis Blair, Director of National Intelligence. Resigned in May 2010. Would have had classified access to White House operations although he did not work in the White House.
    Christina Romer, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. Resigned in September 2010.
    Larry Summers, Director of National Economic Council. Resignation not to take effect until after November 2 election.
    There are also reports that White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs has been told to look for another job. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has announced his decision to leave but with James Jones’s early dismissal, Gates may move up his departure from the Pentagon. David Axelrod plans to leave as early as March 2011 to work, as he has stated,
    on Obama’s re-election campaign from Chicago.

    Obama’s depression and paranoia and Hillary’s intentions

    In the case of President Obama, the senior firings are not happening during a single nght but the recent involuntary sudden departures of the White House chief of staff and national security adviser, along with what WMR can confirm from multiple sources is a president who is suffering from Nixonian levels of paranoia, depression, and Schizophrenia, has some top-level administration officials considering the first-ever invocation of Section 4 of the 25th Amendment — the involuntary removal of the president from office. The White Housemeltdown has the Washington political circuit buzzing under the surface.

    Unlike Watergate and the Iran-contra scandal, however, the corporate media is refusing to report on the breakdown of the Obama administration and the internecine political warfare within the Executive Office of the President.

New subs are pretty quiet & it’s a lot of ocean of which to keep track, but I can’t imagine that if it was anybody other than our own military, that the area wouldn’t have been wall-to-wall in no time with sub chasers, gunships, fighters, destroyers, and a partridge in a pear tree.

    I am optimistic that the DEMs have not irreparably damaged the US and that they have been severely hampered going forward.

    America put these asshats in charge, America has learned a bitter lesson.

    America short-circuited the DEMS on Nov-2 and will complete the job at the earliest opportunity, NOV-6 2012.

    A new American generation is cutting their teeth and this lesson may have saved us from real disaster.

    Obama is not the one… and now all of America knows it, including the majority of DEM voters who are not political DEM activists.

    It is a good day.

    As for that missile launch off the coast of Los Angles? My qualified view is…
    It was an intended launch, not unintended, and was done for political reasons not to damage.

    Federal Worker Salaries of $150,000+ Double on Obama’s Watch

    Federal government workers have notoriously earned more than — in many cases more than double — their private sector counterparts for a while. But a new analysis from USA Today sheds light on the shocking size and scope of pay increases for federal workers, most notably in recent years. According to USA Today, the number of federal workers earning salaries of $150,000 or more has increased tenfold over the past five years and doubled since President Obama took office in January 2009.

    While the rest of the U.S. economy remains stagnant, the fast-growing pay of federal employees has raised eyebrows among conservative Republicans. Though the GOP made significant gains during last week’s midterm elections, Republicans are wary of Democrats’ plans to approve a 1.4 percent across-the-board pay raise to 2.1 million federal workers during the upcoming lame-duck session. USA Today reports:

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, who will head the panel overseeing federal pay, says he wants a pay freeze and prefers a 10% pay cut. “It‘s stunning when you see what’s happened to federal compensation,” he says. “Every metric shows we’re heading in the wrong direction.”

    National Treasury Employees Union President Colleen Kelley counters that the proposed raise “is a modest amount and should be implemented” to help make salaries more comparable with those in the private sector.

    Federal salaries have grown robustly in recent years, according to a USA TODAY analysis of Office of Personnel Management data. Key findings:

    • Government-wide raises. Top-paid staff have increased in every department and agency. The Defense Department had nine civilians earning $170,000 or more in 2005, 214 when Obama took office and 994 in June.

    • Long-time workers thrive. The biggest pay hikes have gone to employees who have been with the government for 15 to 24 years. Since 2005, average salaries for this group climbed 25% compared with a 9% inflation rate.

    • Physicians rewarded. Medical doctors at veterans hospitals, prisons and elsewhere earn an average of $179,500, up from $111,000 in 2005.

    Federal workers earning $150,000 or more now make up 3.9% of the country’s workforce, up from just 0.4% in 2005. In addition, federal workers enjoy more robust benefits packages than their private sector counterparts.

    Since 2000, federal pay and benefits have increased 3% annually above inflation compared with 0.8% for private workers, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Members of Congress earn $174,000, up from $141,300 in 2000, an increase below the rate of inflation.

    Obama’s Islamic friends now number among the JADED.

    Bad news Democrats _ 2012 could be worse than 2010


    WASHINGTON (AP) – Last week’s election was bad for Democrats. The next one could be worse. Senate Democrats running in 2012 will be trying to hold their jobs in states where Republicans just scored major congressional and gubernatorial victories – Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, New Mexico and Virginia.

    The Democrats’ problems don’t end with senators.

    President Barack Obama carried those states in 2008, and he will need most of them to win re-election in two years. But this time they all will have Republican governors. These GOP governors can try to inhibit the president’s policies and campaign operations. They also can help steer next year’s once-a-decade House redistricting process in the GOP’s favor.

    Moreover, Democrats must defend Senate seats in hotly contested Missouri, and in four states that Obama has little chance of winning, assuming he even tries: North Dakota, Nebraska, West Virginia and Montana.

    “The 2012 Senate landscape shows a daunting picture for the Democrats,” said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, chairman of the GOP’s Senate campaign committee. “They’re not only defending twice as many seats as Republicans, but a number of them are in states where the Obama-Reid agenda is deeply unpopular.”

    Harry Reid of Nevada is the Senate majority leader.

    The 2012 Senate map is much kinder to Republicans, who must defend 10 seats to the Democrats’ 23. Except for Republican Sen. Scott Brown, who will fight an uphill re-election battle in Massachusetts, the GOP probably will be favored to keep the Senate seats it now holds.

    Of course, countless things can happen between now and the next election, and Democrats might do extremely well in 2012. Obama could bounce back from midterm setbacks just as President Bill Clinton did in 1996, when he easily won re-election after Democrats lost the House and Senate two years earlier. The slow economic recovery could quicken, with a rise in employment.

    Obama’s spot at the top of the ticket also could help Democratic candidates spur turnout among liberals, minorities and young voters. But it might hurt candidates in states where Obama appears unpopular, such as West Virginia. Democratic Gov. Joe Manchin won a tough Senate race there last week to succeed the late Robert C. Byrd, but he must seek a full six-year term in 2012.

    Democrats will try to win back some of the 60 House seats they lost to Republicans last week, but several factors will work against them. Republicans won gubernatorial and state legislative races in dozens of states. That will give them total or substantial control of the often partisan redrawing of House districts that will occur next year, following the latest U.S. Census. It’s likely to result in several new GOP-leaning districts in states such as Texas at the expense of Democratic-leaning districts in the Rust Belt.

    Democrats may find it especially hard to win back Southern seats lost last week by white Democrats, who are becoming almost extinct in much of the former Confederacy. And if Speaker Nancy Pelosi remains her party’s House leader, Republicans will tell voters that Democrats did not learn their lesson from the 2010 election and need more convincing.

    In the new Congress in January, Democrats will hold a 53-47 edge in the Senate. A mere handful of losses in the next election would put Republicans in control.

    Democratic spokesman Eric Schultz said it’s too early to count anyone out. “Republican overconfidence ran deep this cycle, too,” he said, “but we proved that strong candidates running aggressive campaigns can beat expectations.”

    Still, an early state-by-state look at 2012 races shows the magnitude of Democrats’ challenges.

    In Pennsylvania, Democratic Sen. Bob Casey will seek a second term in a state that just elected Republicans to replace Democrats for governor, senator and five House seats. Sen. Herb Kohl of Wisconsin, 74, will run or retire in a state that just ousted his Democratic colleague, Sen. Russ Feingold, and switched the governor’s office and both legislative chambers from Democratic control to Republican.

    Florida Sen. Bill Nelson will face voters who elected a Republican governor and kept the other U.S. Senate seat in GOP hands. The same thing happened in Ohio, where Sen. Sherrod Brown will seek a second term. Obama won both those states in 2008, and they will be fiercely contested again.

    Sen. Jon Tester of Montana, who narrowly won his first term in 2006, will run again in a state that has gone Republican in all but two presidential elections since 1948.

    In Nebraska, Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson likely will seek a third term in a state that Obama lost by 15 percentage points. Nelson, perhaps the Senate’s most conservative Democrat, caught a break when GOP Gov. Dave Heineman said he would not run for Senate. But another potentially strong challenger, Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning, may jump in.

    Democratic Sens. Jim Webb of Virginia and Claire McCaskill of Missouri could face rematches in their bids for a second term in 2012. Republicans scored impressive victories in both those states last week.

    Former Virginia Gov. and Sen. George Allen, whom Webb narrowly beat four years ago, might run again. The same goes for former Sen. Jim Talent of Missouri, who lost to McCaskill in a close contest.

    Other Democratic senators facing re-election in states that just gave big victories to Republicans include Debbie Stabenow of Michigan and Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico.

    Few states are more daunting for Democrats than North Dakota, which last voted for a Democratic presidential nominee in 1964. Nonetheless, Democrat Kent Conrad has won a remarkable five Senate elections there, and presumably will try again in 2012. He’s lucky that popular GOP Gov. John Hoeven just grabbed the open seat being vacated by Democratic Sen. Byron Dorgan. But another viable Republican might step up.

    Not all the problems fall on Democrats. In Maine, centrist Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe has proven a savvy campaigner. But tea party activists just elevated Paul LePage to the governor’s office, and the libertarian-leaning conservatives may try to knock off Snowe in the 2012 Republican primary.

    In Nevada, a toss-up state in recent elections, Republican Sen. John Ensign is dogged by a staff-and-sex scandal. Re-election may prove tough for him, and Republicans might seek another nominee.

    Perhaps no Senate contest will inspire Democrats more than Massachusetts, where they are burning to take back the seat long held by liberal hero Edward M. Kennedy. The state leans heavily Democratic. But Brown stunned the political establishment in the January special election, and it’s possible he has more magic up his Republican sleeve.

    Obama and Pelosi are dancing on quicksand.

    Poor poor Nancy.
    The house fell on her,
    Someone is going to take her ruby slippers, and,
    She is going to lose her big broom.

    Ding Dong the witch is dead.

    And a good afternoon to everybody.
    I see where “students” are rioting in jolly Auld England over hikes in tuition fees. Looks like it’s all over over there. A country that once civilized the world is now fit only for spoiled government dependents, and the No. #1 name for boys is now “Mohammed”.

    VF, the next WH Insider segment is out:

    “Who is the next to leave the White House? You correctly predicted Summers and Emanuel before anyone else. Can you give me another prediction on who the next administration figure who is on the way out?

    Sure – but there is going to be a whole rash of departures coming up you know. Top to bottom.

    Can you give me a big name – somebody important who is leaving?

    You testing me?

    Maybe – just seeing if you are still getting good information.

    Oh – I see. I’m only as good as my last success, is that it?

    Sure – something like that.


    Yeah – the fat -expletive- Gibbs is gone. And good riddance.”

    Seems China is not thrilled about Obama running $$ printing presses in overtime to devalue the dollar. Oh my oh my, whatever will Bar-Bar do?
    His Chinese Piggy Bank is Angwy! Gee… isn’t be Mr BigShot a swell job?
