Sean Hyman: Obama’s Smoke and Mirrors Show Only Delaying the Tough Times

"What’s the story with your average Americans? They don’t save. They spend. In fact, they usually outspend what they make. So they have no real savings to tap into in order to make these big-ticket items to thrust the economy forward. But that’s okay, they can always get a loan or tap lines of credit like they always do, right? Wrong.

"You see, we still have the same problems with the banks that we had before. There’s still a credit crunch out there. The banks still are hardly lending, even to those with great credit. In fact, they are still calling in some loans from people that have even had great payment histories.

"So if average Americans hardly have any savings to make these big-ticket purchases with and they can’t get hold of the money they need through their banks, then how are consumers supposed to pick up where the government left off and support economic expansion? They can’t."

Moneynews.com: Obama: More Job Losses Coming

"U.S. President Barack Obama said on Monday that more U.S. jobs will be lost in coming weeks and months but stressed the economy has recovered a lot of ground since he took office in January.

"Speaking at a White House meeting of his Economic Recovery Advisory Board, Obama said the current pace of job losses was "distressing" and the labor market would not improve quickly.

"'We anticipate that we are going to continue to see some job losses in the weeks and months to come,' Obama said."

"Yes We Can" or "Yes We Thought We Could"?

Don Rose: Damned if He Does, Damned if He Doesn’t

"If Obama refuses to send more troops, ends the war, and continues to phase-out the Iraq war, there are those who believe it will have a devastating political effect, turning him into a one-term president, as historian Garry Wills suggests on the New York Review blog.

"Yet even that, says Wills, an Obama supporter from the earliest days, would be preferable to sending more and more young Americans into the slaughter: 'I had great hopes for the Obama presidency, even in his first term, and especially if he could have two terms to realize the exciting new things he aspires to do in the White House. But I would rather see him a one-term president than have him pass on another unwinnable war to the man who will follow him in office.'

Sher Zieve: CBO: ObamaCare will Cover Only 2% of US Citizens

"This is important because it completely contradicts what Obama and the White House have been saying for months…and months. Obama has alternately quoted figures of 47 and 46 millions and, then, 30 millions who are health care uninsured in the US. Suffice it to say, none of his figures come even remotely close to the truth—and now the Congressional Budget Office (headed and staffed by Obamaites) has confirmed what many of us have known all along. Note: As of July 2008, the US population was listed as 304,059,724. 2% of that figure is just over 6 millions—not 47 or even 30!
The CBO also stated that ObamaCare will be far more expensive to the consumer than is private health insurance—thus exposing yet another ObamaLie."

AFP: One year on, Obamamania gives way to luke warm support

"A quick look around downtown Washington confirms that the Obama trinkets are still for sale, but more than one strategically placed street hawker have found little point in displaying the T-shirts, posters, and "Yes We Can" buttons bearing the new president's image.

"'They stay in the truck,' grumbled a vendor who identified himself as 'Dick,' as he pointed to a rusty vehicle behind him. 'They don't sell anymore.'"

Yes we can get overloaded with Obama souvenirs we cannot move.

Rush Racism: The Media’s Been Punk’d, Ignorant, Intolerant, Racist Left

"'Of course, it is always good when an “Uncle Tom” Negro writes a defense to one of the most reprehensible men in recent times. The vile and borderline vulgar language that comes from Rush’s broadcasts is too much to discuss in any one posting—however, I challenge the writer of this to ACTUALLY LISTEN to him sometime. More recently, Rush attacked the President about a college thesis that the President NEVER WROTE!!!!! He reacted on false information—much like what this so-called writer has written about in his article.

John Eidsmoe and Ben DuPré: What makes a 'great' president?

"We've strayed from the founders' vision. But for whatever scraps of our Constitution remain, we should thank America's truly great leaders – not those who made drastic changes and centralized power, but rather those who have stood by the Constitution, preserved limited decentralized government, and thereby protected individual liberty."

Washington Times: A pay-to-play White House

"Finally, it is clear what President Obama meant when he said this would be the most 'transparent administration in history.' He wasn't saying that his White House would be open and accountable; he was saying that his administration didn't feel much need to come up with plausible lies, they'd be fine using the transparent kind.

"In the months since Mr. Obama took office, his administration has showered the Democratic Party's key fundraisers with insider briefings from administration staffers, access to the president and top aides and all the social perks that only the White House can bestow. The president, who ran for office saying he wanted to clean up fundraising, is perfectly happy to wallow in the cash-for-access mud pit.

"In reporting on exactly how the administration went down this corrupt path, reporters at The Washington Times asked the administration for White House visitor logs and guest lists for specific individuals such as campaign fundraisers and specific events such as cocktail parties and concerts. So far, the administration hasn't produced the information.

"That pesky little fact didn't stop the deputy White House communications director from claiming in an e-mail, 'For the first time in history, records detailing who visited the White House will be made public on a regular basis.' Translation: At the moment, we are hiding our dirty laundry just like every other crooked politician, but at some point in the future, we will stop, and that will be 'historic.' Indeed, brazen and historic."

Aaron Klein: Campaign chief: We did 'zero research' on 'the One'

"Continued Plouffe: 'We had done zero research on our own candidate beyond a small and incomplete package from the 2004 Senate race. ... We had ... failed to discuss the various options we might explore vis-à-vis Wright. We never raised with Obama the idea of leaving the church, or discussed with him any detail of how we would respond if inflammatory statements were to emerge. We were in denial.'"

Larrey Anderson: No Health Care in the Constitution

"If a particular state does not provide a government-mandated 'right' to health care, the choice to provide (or not to provide) for our own health care is up to each of us. Health care is our choice, but it is not a 'right' if it has not been made a right by an individual state."


"So let me get this right: We are going to help those who don’t have health care because they can't afford it by taxing them up the wazoo for that very health care? And, if they don’t buy health insurance, then we are going to turn the limitless power of the IRS against them, fine them outrageous amounts of money and throw them in prison?"

Fred Lucas: White House Says No ‘Veracity’ to Argument That Forcing Individuals to Buy Health Insurance Is Unconstitutional

"A Congressional Research Service report concluded that requiring individuals to purchase or have health insurance could be challenged.

"'Whether such a requirement would be constitutional under the Commerce Clause is perhaps the most challenging question posed by such a proposal, as it is a novel issue whether Congress may use this clause to require an individual to purchase a good or service,' the CRS reportedly says.

"In 1994, when the Clinton administration attempted to push a health care reform plan through a Democratic Congress that also mandated every American buy health insurance, the Congressional Budget Office determined that the government had never ordered Americans to buy anything.

"'The government has never required people to buy any good or service as a condition of lawful residence in the United States,' the CBO analysis said. 'An individual mandate would have two features that, in combination, would make it unique. First, it would impose a duty on individuals as members of society. Second, it would require people to purchase a specific service that would be heavily regulated by the federal government.'"
