Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast ScrambleDim Won’s snide tone is getting tiresome, John Dickerson, Sltate [1]:

President Obama was feeling loose at a Democratic campaign fundraiser Thursday as he talked about the Republican Party. “We got our mops and our brooms out, we’re cleaning stuff out, and they’re sitting there saying, ‘Hold the broom better.’ ‘That’s not how you mop.’ ” He then went from the utility closet to the garage. “After [Republicans] drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want the keys back. No! You can’t drive! We don’t want to have to go back into the ditch! We just got the car out! We just got the car out!”

Let me see, in fifteen months, President Obama has crashed the economy, spiked unemployment, attempted to kill the health care industry, is driving health care cost up, has offended long time allies Britain and Israel, emboldened  Iran’s nuclear ambitions, attempted coup is Costa Rica and want to impose Cap and Tax.    Yet rather than apologizing for his long list failure, Obama deigns to lecture us of  civility.   Earth to Barry, you were not elected to lecture your collective bosses, to with the public.  You elected to achieve results.   Sadly you seem more interesting in play golf than solving the nations problems.

I hear that PIAP a coming, more Mrs. Clinton in Twelve rumblings, from Hugh S. Wizbang [2]:

But the gratuitous comment attributed to Obama in Sargent’s article about the Clintons (and school uniforms [3]) is some real raw meat. President Obama, while remaining generically popular in national polls, is getting crushed in the battleground states of the 2010 midterms. I’ve never dismissed the possibility of a Clinton challenge to Obama in 2012 for several reasons.  First, if Hillary would have simply executed a nominally effective caucus state strategy in 2008 Obama would have lost. Second, there is the still in place Clinton campaign apparatus that could be mobilized immediately. And third there is the Ego of the Clintons and their drive for power. Granted, all politicians that strive for higher office must necessarily possess large egos, but the Clintons took that requisite to a new level in the 1990’s.

If Dim Won gets primaries in Twelve, at whom will he shake his finger?   If Mrs. Clinton is serious about running, she had better start conjuring up some successes as Secretary of State.  I mean it not like Iran stopped its nuclear program or that reset button actually worked with the Russians.

Did Algore buy Heinz? From Todd Venzia and Jennifer Bain, New York Post [4]:

For the first time in 40 years, Heinz ketchup is changing its famous recipe — by lowering the salt content in an effort to appeal to more health-conscious consumers, the company said yesterday.

Company officials have taste tested the new blend and believe it will be as popular as their old recipe, which has a 60 percent share of the ketchup market.

But Heinz fans fear that the company may be messing with perfection and that the switch could wind up a flavor debacle equal to the infamous rollout of New Coke.

Fixing problems that simply do not exist.   With a sixty percent market share, Heinz has a lot more room to go down than up.
