Why isn't Obama doing more to create jobs?

Tweety had a good idea - Obama could go to Minnesota and take the press
to the worst ten bridges and suggest the state or the feds hire 500 men
to fix the damn bridges - is Bachmann going to fight that plan?

Then Obama goes to Massachusetts and find the worst ten bridges and suggest the state or feds hire 500 men to fix
the damn bridges - is Romney going to fight that plan?

Are the Thugs going to say, "We can't afford to have safe bridges," Minneapolis had a bridge fail a few years ago.

Who's going to say no to fixing the bridges?

At the very least, people would say, "Obama is trying to create jobs."

Nobody's saying that now.

Obama needs to come to work.
Pigboy, Hannity are big, fat liars
Congrats, boys - did it take long to figure that out?

Even with the economy obviously struggling, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity still feel the need
to shamelessly mislead their listeners into thinking that President Obama's stewardship of the economy
has been even worse than they realized. Last week, Pigboy claimed Obama "inherited" an unemployment
rate of 5.7 percent. Last night, Sean Hannity echoed Limbaugh, except that Hannity's figures say that
Obama inherited a slightly better 5.6 percent unemployment rate.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate in January of 2009  was 7.8 percent.

So what exactly is going on here? Did Limbaugh and Hannity really just make up a number out of whole cloth?
Of course not — they merely found a completely irrelevant number and used that.

It's hardly news that these frauds are bald-faced liars.

What's next - the sun is hot and water is wet?

Israel Pounds Gaza After Deadly Attacks Near Eilat
In 2009, there was a 2 week period where more than 985 Palestinians were killed, including more than 400 civilians. This is in comparison to 13 Israelis who were killed, including three civilians. It is estimated that 40% of all the Gaza casualties have been civilians.

F**king Israel. And they're doing it with OUR money.
Worst Person

Rush Limbaugh still owns this category. President Obama, he says, is an Oreo cookie.

I don't think they've invented a food disgusting enough to use as a metaphor for an impotent, fat, deaf, drug-warped turd.

Let's do the time warp again
Fox Nation seems to be implying Obama has been president since 2000god, did obama do the 2008 housing market collapse, too?

Jesus, does anything ever go right in this turd country anymore? Poverty lines the streets of America knee-deep with roasted turd chips everywhere you turn. Totally, totally, *head shake*, Fox Nation is with y'all there. They just read this terrible study they will post about, because the study says it found that "child poverty increased in 38 states from 2000 to 2009. As a result, 14.7 million children, 20%, were poor in 2009. That represents a 2.5 million increase from 2000, when 17% of the nation's youth lived in low-income homes" blah blah that is so terrible, is anyone at all paying attention to this societal depravity, like Fox Nation? See how bad things got from 2000 to 2009? That was a pretty tragic decade. Yeah, what the hell, Obama? READ MORE »


After Perry dismisses evolution as a "theory that's out there," Huntsman jumps on twitter and says "I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy."

The gaps in the theory of evolution are inconsequential compared to the gap between Rick Perry's ears.



Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone has an explosive look at how he says the SEC has been routinely destroying evidence of financial crimes by Wall Street.

The SEC hasn't just done this a handful of times, Taibbi finds that over 18,000 separate MUIs were destroyed


Obama is about to go on vacation, so you know what that means! Endless wankery from Republicans about Obama going on vacation, cost analysis of Secret service details, and the works. The RNC is ahead of the game with vacation postcards you can send Obama:

Meanwhile, the facts tell a different story:

There has been criticism of the president's vacation at this time. But how does the number of vacation days the president has spent compare to his predecessors? CBS Radio's Mark Knoller has kept track of presidential vacations for years and supplied the data.

So far, President Obama has taken 61 vacation days after 31 months in office. At this point in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings. And Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch.

Among recent presidents, Bill Clinton took the least time off—28 days.

To be fair, a presidential vacation away from the White House is not the same as a vacation for the average person. The president is still in contact with his advisers and on call for any emergency.

Looks like Rain Main at CBS came through for a change.

I hate Republicans. Also, too.


This is what democracy looks like. It's nice to see a President campaign for reelection and not only not bannish those who oppose him, but actually engage them, even people who call him "socialist."  We remember when the Bush team tossed teachers out of presidential rallies because they wore t-shirts that expressed loyalty to civil liberties. But at least they got another rally, in another state, three people were barred from entering a rally because the car they arrived in had an anti-war bumper sticker. Basically, during the Bush years, his rallies were "No Liberals Allowed" -- you know, because he wasn't everyone's President, and didn't even pretend he was.

Responding to GOP presidential candidates' proclaimed desire to eliminate the EPA and question global warming science, Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) said on MSNBC last night, "Rick Perry and these other guys are allergic to science. And too many of the tea party people, who basically don't believe in science, are now controlling the Republican Party."

Michele Bachmann offers to crash economy to lower gas prices

what you don't realize is that is michele bachmann under there.

Hollering pill junkie loser welfare brat Michele Bachmann promises everybody that if she is elected President, the price of gas will come down to $2. "That will happen," she says, and nothing else. Ominous! Since Michele won't specify how this will happen, we will reason through her promise: Bachmann yodels on and on in her speech that gas was $1.79 when Obama took office, which stupid, annoying experts note was the result of the economic crash forcing businesses and humans to stop shipping things or traveling anywhere. And since new domestic drilling can only produce minimal quantities compared to demand that OPEC would offset anyway by reducing output and thus have minimal to zero impact on gas prices, the only way to reduce prices again would be to just destroy the economy anew. But at least we will still have Jesus and a bargain $2 way for Americans to off themselves running the car motor in the closed garage, right Michele? READ MORE »
