Second Stimulus?

The economy continues to dwindle in these harsh economic times.  Job losses have fallen in every month since January and the unemployment rate, 9.4%, is at a twenty-six year low.  Based on these statistics, Congress has asked themselves if a second stimulus bill is needed.  Let me give you a quick answer, NO! Let’s go back to the first stimulus, named the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The enormous $787 billion bill failed according to President Barack Obama’s predictions. While campaigning for its vote, Obama stated that without this very important bill, the unemployment rate will rise to

Bitter Ex-Pastor: Obama ‘Ain’t Jesus’

Well, look whose popped back up in the news. Yup it’s mister God Damn America himself. Sounding perhaps a bit bitter and maybe even a little religion-clinging Rev. Wright had this to say on Thursday: On Thursday, Wright was addressing more than 700 people at a mass meeting that kicked off the 44th anniversary celebration of the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery voting rights march. The event was held at Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church, site of the first mass meeting that led to the watershed voting rights movement in Selma. During his address, Wright cautioned against putting too much faith in Obama. “Barack’s

Chavez: Obama has ‘Same Stench’ as Bush

Fox reports: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez apparently doesn’t appreciate Barack Obama’s classifying him as a supporter of the Colombian terror group, FARC, likening the president-elect’s odor to that of Chavez’s nemesis, President Bush. In an interview airing on Venezuelan television and reported by The Washington Post Monday, Chavez said Obama has “the same stench” as Bush. The comment harkens back to September 2006, when Chavez addressed the United Nations General Assembly after Bush and said he could still smell the “sulfur” the U.S. president left behind at the podium. I’m not worried though, once our savior descends to Venezuela to meet

Obama Aide: Don’t ask Don’t Tell Must Wait

So much for that campaign promise: In an overlooked YouTube video posted on Friday, a spokesman for Barack Obama said the president-elect is committed to ending the policy that bars openly gay men and women from serving in the U.S. armed forces. […] Gibbs on Wednesday expanded on his answer, saying, “There are many challenges facing our nation now and the president-elect is focused first and foremost on jump-starting this economy. “So not everything will get done in the beginning but he’s committed to following through” with ending the policy against being openly gay in the military. In other words,

Bobblehead Barack

Come on… will the merchandising ever end? I mean how can I be expected to take this “monumental achievement” when its being cheapened to the level of the snuggie. I mean sure this time Obama’s people weren’t the ones behind the cornyness, it was a minor league baseball team from Brooklyn or “Baraklyn“, but they’ve sponsored their own crap fests as well. I swear the genius who came up with this promotion is a political satire savant. Just check out the full package:

Obama’s Internal Investigation Will Be Used to Help… Blagojevich?

That’s what Blago’s lawyer is hoping anyway… But I think Obama’s interal investigation will do about as much to exonerate Blagojevich as it did to exonerate Obama’s staff. After all, how credible can any investigation into one’s (or the one’s) own guilt be? P.S. Hello to everybody from the Conservative Grapevine!

Obama Drops Windfall Profits Tax

In an act that further proves that Obama believes there is such a thing as too much success he decided to drop his famed windfall profits tax proposal. Now, right now you might be saying “But CP (College Politico), dropping a proposed tax is a good thing and encourages success”. To which I would reply “yes, awesome and intelligent reader, that is true but its not the fact that he dropped the tax proposal which proves he thinks a person or company can be too successful but, rather, its the reasoning behind it. You see, Obama has decided to drop

Richardson joins Obama’s Cabinet

The day after Hillary Clinton accepted the Secretary of State post the fact that New Mexican Governor Bill Richardson will be nominated as Commerce Secretary was leaked. Yup, the man widely (and rightfully) referred to as “Judas” by the Clinton camp will now be working hand in hand with Hillary herself. Brilliant! Forget the “team of rivals” label this is much closer to a “team of liberal who hate each other” shaping up. I guess we will have to wait and see how it plays out. The best we can hope for, i would think, is that they quickly implode

Associated Press Cites Cookie Success as Example of Obama’s Change

No… I couldn’t make this up if I tried: Want an example of the change Barack Obama is bringing to the country? Check out cookie sales at Baby Boomers Cafe in Des Moines. Yes… that’s right, not only is Obama our new savior but he is now our new Pillsbury Doughboy. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_I3br9m-68 Actually, judging by this comment from the owner of the cafe that Obama has shown his grace upon maybe he is a strange doughboy messiah combination, or, in other words, he is a savory savior: “I think everybody just … thought, ‘Oh, great cookie, great president _ the

Hillary One Step Closer to Secretary of State?

Barack Obama meet with Hillary Clinton Thursday in Chicago in order to talk about her about becoming his Secretary of State. Or at least that’s what some Democratic officials are telling the AP. So perhaps those original rumors were true? And maybe Hillary is now one step closer to being our nations top diplomat. Of course lots of people were saying Hillary would be Obama’s VP pick too and we all know how that turned out. UPDATE: “Her’s to turn down”?
