Breakfast Scramble (Friday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble

Shut the F*ck Up Mr. President, Dumbo ia/k/a Dim Won, b/k/a Barack Obama weighs in the Reverend Terry Jones’ plan to burn a copy of the Koran, from George Stephanopoulos, ABC News [1]:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Let me ask you about Pastor Terry Jones. He gave a press conference today. Says he’s going to go through with burning the Korans. Is there anything you can say to him to convince him not to?

OBAMA: If he’s listening, I just hope he understands that what he’s proposing to do is completely contrary to our values of Americans. That this country has been built on the notions of religious freedom and religious tolerance. And as a very practical matter, as commander of chief of the Armed Forces of the United States I just want him to understand that this stunt that he is talking about pulling could greatly endanger our young men and women in uniform who are in Iraq, who are in Afghanistan. We’re already seeing protests against Americans just by the mere threat

No person who attended Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church for twenty years has any moral standing to criticize bow particular preacher wants to conduct the business of his particular church.   I realize that the Constitution of the United States is not exactly Dim Won’s strong suit, but the  job of the President of the United States is to protect the Constitution and not offer his two cent s about church services.

Fidel Castro throws Cuba under the bus, from Associated Press, via Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit [2]:

Fidel Castro told a visiting American journalist that Cuba’s communist economic model doesn’t work, a rare comment on domestic affairs from a man who has conspicuously steered clear of local issues since stepping down four years ago.

The fact that things are not working efficiently on this cash-strapped Caribbean island is hardly news. Fidel’s brother Raul, the country’s president, has said the same thing repeatedly. But the blunt assessment by the father of Cuba’s 1959 revolution is sure to raise eyebrows

Any comment from Michael Moore?    Will Dumbo, a/k/a Dim Won, b/k/a Barack Obama be honest enough to make a similar death bed confesssion?

Or does he? From Fausta [3]:

Doesn’t Jeffrey [Goldberg] understand Spanish? Is he hard of hearing? Or is being a useful idiot that hard on the auditory canals?

Meanwhile, over in Cuba, Cuban riot police quash Pakistani student protest [4].

OFA is MIA (Organizing for America is Missing in Action), from Time [5]:

What happened to Barack Obama’s once vaunted political machine? The outfit that put upwards of 8 million volunteers on the street in 2008 — known as Organizing for America — is a ghost of its former self. Its staff has shrunk from 6,000 to 300, and its donors are depressed: receipts are a fraction of what they were in 2008. Virtually no one in politics believes it will turn many contests this fall. “There’s no chance that OFA is going to have the slightest impact on the midterms,” says Charlie Cook, who tracks congressional races.

Organizing for America is ghost of its former self, much like Obama’s many campaign promises.   Captain Ed Morrissey, Hot Air [6]:

Neglect is part of it, but not a complete explanation.  The driving force behind OFA and Obama’s campaign has been the Left, and they’re no longer enthused or engaged.  Obama promised them an end to the Iraq War and Guantanamo Bay’s terrorist detention center, and instead Obama gave them Bush’s SOFA withdrawal plan and an absolute punt on Gitmo.  The Left thought they would get the public option in ObamaCare, the stalking horse for a nationalized, single-payer health care system, but instead got a watered-down version of their dream.
