Obama Dislocates Both Shoulders Patting Himself On The Back

In an extraordinary display of unmitigated stupidity a room full of blithering idiots, in lock step with their hero Barack Obama who struts around like he won 93% of the vote instead of the pedestrian 53% of the goofs he managed to completely fool, cheer, whoop it up and applaud every time he mentions how much taxpayer money he has blown since slithering into our White House.

It’s rather comical how he claims he took over in the midst of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression when it fact this whole financial mess was brought about in large part, by Democrats going all the way back to the previous worst president Americans were forced to endure, one termer Jimmy Carter.

Hoooo boy did he ever manage to get the largest economic stimulus package this country has ever had to choke on passed and the result has been exactly what? Skyrocketing unemployment, businesses closing their doors all over the country, deserted shopping malls and an economy that shrunk 5.7% in the first quarter of the year. The number of home foreclosures due to job loss and people simply walking from upside down mortgages is staggering despite Obama’s claims that his administration has put into place policies to stabilize the housing market. In reality the Obama administration has dumped, wasted and pissed away billions in a stupid and failed effort to keep people, who had no prayer of paying their mortgages even after receiving taxpayer assistance, in their homes.

GM stock is trading at 77 cents a share at this particular moment now that it’s pretty clear the government will be running the company long into the foreseeable future which means the auto manufacturer will be forced to churn out crappy little cars that nobody wants driving GM further down that rabbit hole to oblivion. Health care stocks are tanking out of fear the government will soon begin imposing new mandates and price controls. The huge taxing scheme, obscurely referred to as cap and trade, is hanging over the heads of every single person living within the U.S. not to mention an across the board tax hike we will all be getting hammered with soon enough necessitated by Obama’s unprecedented and out of control spending spree. Obama’s never ending assault on and hostility toward our free market system has the very risk-taking capitalists and entrepreneurs necessary and essential to a sustainable economic recovery unwilling to stick their necks out in fear they will lose, or have taken away, everything they have worked so hard for their entire adult lives.

Had the knuckleheads sitting in that room rolled their tongues up off the floor and opened their ears they may have caught Obama saying this country will be paying the health insurance costs for the children of people in this country illegally!

Sure thing there Obama after all we have plenty of money to throw around don’t we?

Taxpayers are on the hook for an extra $55,000 a household to cover rising federal commitments made just in the past year for retirement benefits, the national debt and other government promises, a USA TODAY analysis shows.

The 12% rise in red ink in 2008 stems from an explosion of federal borrowing during the recession, plus an aging population driving up the costs of Medicare and Social Security.

That’s the biggest leap in the long-term burden on taxpayers since a Medicare prescription drug benefit was added in 2003.

The latest increase raises federal obligations to a record $546,668 per household in 2008, according to the USA TODAY analysis. That’s quadruple what the average U.S. household owes for all mortgages, car loans, credit cards and other debt combined.

“We have a huge implicit mortgage on every household in America — except, unlike a real mortgage, it’s not backed up by a house,” says David Walker, former U.S. comptroller general, the government’s top auditor.

[It seems the author took great pains to avoid pinning an ounce of responsibility for the country’s financial morass on the Obama administration by CONSTANTLY reminding us the figures quoted are for the year 2008. Again, it’s all Bush’s fault folks…ed]

Well he was just about done slapping himself on the back when he spit out this little gem about his SCOTUS nominee Sonia Sotomayor,

This woman is brilliant–she is qualified–I want her confirmed–I want her walking up those marble steps and start to provide some justice!

What the hell is he talking about “provide some justice?” The Supreme Court hasn’t been providing any justice all these years without Sotomayor sitting on the bench? Or is it more like she embodies the same views Obama has about how unjust this country has been to the poor, the weak…the minorities and it’s time for some serious payback to those who have rode roughshod over these groups since the founding of our country? Hmmm, I wonder if Clarence Thomas is merely chopped liver in Obama’s eyes?

Well, I guess he is!

As far as Obama wanting, actually demanding she be confirmed, well hot dang what president doesn’t want their nominee to sail right through their Senate confirmation hearing? But then again when Obama was a U.S. Senator he had a little different take on this whole confirmation process especially when a Republican president and conservative nominee were involved.

As we all know, there’s been a lot of discussion in the country about how the Senate should approach this confirmation process. There are some who believe that the President, having won the election, should have the complete authority to appoint his nominee, and the Senate should only examine whether or not the Justice is intellectually capable and an all-around nice guy. That once you get beyond intellect and personal character, there should be no further question whether the judge should be confirmed.

I disagree with this view. I believe firmly that the Constitution calls for the Senate to advise and consent. I believe that it calls for meaningful advice and consent that includes an examination of a judge’s philosophy, ideology, and record. And when I examine the philosophy, ideology, and record of Samuel Alito, I’m deeply troubled.

I have no doubt that Judge Alito has the training and qualifications necessary to serve. He’s an intelligent man and an accomplished jurist. And there’s no indication he’s not a man of great character.

But when you look at his record – when it comes to his understanding of the Constitution, I have found that in almost every case, he consistently sides on behalf of the powerful against the powerless; on behalf of a strong government or corporation against upholding American’s individual rights.

If there is a case involving an employer and an employee and the Supreme Court has not given clear direction, he’ll rule in favor of the employer. If there’s a claim between prosecutors and defendants, if the Supreme Court has not provided a clear rule of decision, then he’ll rule in favor of the state. He’s rejected countless claims of employer discrimination, even refusing to give some plaintiffs a hearing for their case. He’s refused to hold corporations accountable numerous times for dumping toxic chemicals into water supplies, even against the decisions of the EPA. He’s overturned a jury verdict that found a company liable for being a monopoly when it had over 90% of the market share at the time.

It’s not just his decisions in these individual cases that give me pause – it’s that decisions like these are the rule for Samuel Alito, not the exception.

When it comes to how checks and balances in our system are supposed to operate – the balance of power between the Executive Branch, Congress, and the Judiciary, Judge Alito consistently sides with the notion that a President should not be constrained by either Congressional acts or the check of the Judiciary. He believes in the overarching power of the President to engage in whatever the President deems to be appropriate policy. As a consequence of this, I’m extraordinarily worried about how Judge Alito might approach issues like wiretapping, monitoring of emails, or other privacy concerns that we’ve seen surface over the last several months.

In sum, I’ve seen an extraordinarily consistent attitude on the part of Judge Alito that does not uphold the traditional role of the Supreme Court as a bastion of equality and justice for United States citizens.

Should he be confirmed, I hope that he proves me wrong. I hope that he shows the independence that I think is absolutely necessary in order for us to preserve our liberties and protect our citizens.

Yes that was a pretty rousing crowd that was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to listen to Obama brag about his phantom accomplishments. I just hope there was a doctor in the house who was qualified enough to reset his dislocated shoulders after the gig was over.
