CBS This Morning was on the screen (I almost said “tube”) this morning and I watched an exchange between Charlie Rose and John Dickerson. Rose introduced the topic as Marco Rubio being the latest GOP candidate to “run into trouble” this morning over his comments about the Iraq war. There clearly is a herd mentality out… Read more »

Barack Obama’s 2012 Presidential campaign was described succinctly in this term: “Destroy Mitt Romney” Never mind ideas or themes. Just destroy him. Thanks to the left’s intellectual deficit, it worked. Thing is, it’s not over. There’s always someone new in the GOP to destroy and today it’s Marco Rubio, despite the pleadings of David Ignatius… Read more »
Obama Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter: “The goal of Romney economics has always been about wealth creation, but job creation. It’s wealth creation for a handful of investors like Mitt Romney, not about the creation of jobs for everybody else.”
Chris Wallace: “Mr. Goolsby, can you name a single CEO who does not see their job as creating wealth for their investors rather than creating jobs?” [quoted from memory]
Austin Goolsbey, an Obama adviser: “Uh, I don’t know the answer to that.”
Michelle Obama: of her husband: “…we are blessed to have him.”
Rush Limbaugh: “I saw a great little poster: ‘Reaganomics: Start a business, become a gazillionaire in your garage. Obamanomics: Live in your parents’ garage.’ “
President Obama: “I hear folks running around calling this class warfare, this is not class warfare—let me tell you something: asking a billionaire to pay at least as much as his secretary, that’s just common sense.”
Joe Biden to Nancy Pelosi: “There’s not a single, solitary thing on our agenda that would have gotten done without your leadership. Those decisions you made, the risk you took, the losses we incurred, really did save this country.”
President Barack Obama, for about the 100th time: “This jobs bill is fully paid for. This jobs bill contains the kinds of proposals that Democrats and Republicans have supported in the past. And now, I want it back. It is time for Congress to get its act together and pass this jobs bill so I can sign it into law.”
Al Gore: “We need to have an American spring, you know, the Arab spring. The non-violent part of it isn’t finished yet, but we need to have an American spring. A kind of an American Tahrir Square. Non-violent change where people from the grassroots get involved again. Not the, you know, not in the Tea Party style.” Just not real grass roots; just not grass roots movements that disagree with him.
Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) statement: “The current, so-called `debt crisis’ has been completely manufactured by House Republicans attempting to advance an extremist agenda. This should be a simple vote to allow the US Treasury to fund all of the programs and obligations of the entire federal government that are already in the law.”
Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi statement: “It is clear we must enter an era of austerity; to reduce the deficit through shared sacrifice.”
President Obama on a Balanced Budget Amendment: “We don’t need a constitutional amendment to do that. What we need to do is do our jobs.”
Senate Leader Harry Reid: “I think this piece of legislation [Cap, Cut and Balance] is about as weak and senseless as anything that has ever come on this Senate floor, and I’m not going to waste the Senate’s time day after day on this piece of legislation which I think is anathema to what our country is all about. I feel confident that this legislation will be disposed of one way or the other. The American people should understand that this is a bad piece of legislation, perhaps some of the worst legislation in the history of this country.” In case you don’t get this, he is telling all of the Democrat Senators to shelve Cut, Cap and Balance without giving it a hearing.
Every single week, liberals and conservatives say a lot of things. When a liberal says a particularly dumb thing, it is all but ignored by the Obama Media Complex; when conservative says an intelligent thing, it is all but ignored by the OMC. For this reason, I recommend that you send these columns to your moderate friends (and to liberals who seem to simply be unlearned). Week after week, I believe that what people actually say will eventually sink in.
