L. Donald played Dumbo like a cheap fiddle. How is that the Messiah, with the world class intellect and temperament got played like a cheap fiddle at a hoe down? From Jim Kunhhenn:
WASHINGTON (AP ) – Confronting doubters who harbor questions about his place of birth, President Barack Obama chose to defy one of his White House’s own rules: Don’t get dragged into the news skirmish of the day.
This time, he decided he had to. In an extraordinary step, the White House produced a copy of his detailed Hawaii birth certificate Wednesday after obtaining a special waiver from the state to make it public.
For his allies and even many of his political critics, it was about time.
We got fiddlers and we got the fiddled. Dumbo, b/k/a Barack Obama is clearly the latter. Dumbo got elected because he controlled the narrative. Dumbo flummoxed himself when he simply blew off Mrs. Clinton who first raised the birth certificate question.
What can Dumbo do about gasoline prices? from Bradford Plumer, New Republic :
Oil is up around $110 per barrel; the price of gas at the pump is approaching $4 per gallon. It’s clear the White House is nervous about this: Barack Obama has started mentioning gas prices everywhere he goes. There are two big questions here: Are rising gas prices going to sink Obama’s presidency? And, either way, is there anything that can actually be done about them?
What the president can do to help lower the cost of global crude:
“My fellow Americans, it with a heavy heart that accept the resignation of Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar.”
Ok, I am old and listen to too much Lyndon B. Johnson Sue me. Granted, Salazar is not the entire problem, but is no part of the solution.
Dumbo’s economics, or lack thereof. I contend that Barack Obama is the most uneducated president in American history. The only lesson Obama ever seems to have learned is create a villain for every problem. Is Obama economic theory working for you? Meanwhile back in Boston, from the Boston Herald :
So he’s in a panic at rising gasoline prices â€” because there’s nothing worse than angry voters furious at what it costs to fill up the tank, especially at the start of the summer driving season. In a letter sent to congressional leaders Tuesday Obama put part of the blame for the sharp spike in gas prices on “increased global demand” compounded by “unrest and supply disruptions in the Middle East.” Well, China’s demand didn’t spike overnight and any disruptions from the serial crises in the Middle East have far more impact in Europe than here.
If Dumbo survives politically, he may well be the most mocked president ever to get re-elected. Don Hewitt has no nice piece to officially open the season of the mocking, video:
Hat tip: [not so] Nice Deb .
Truth, Justice and Sharia Law, Superman, b/k/a mild mannered reporter Clark Kent, to renounce US citizenship, reax from a clearly less than heart broken Fausta :
I didn’t realize he was a citizen. Mr. & Mrs. Kent must have gotten him legally adopted and naturalized, since he was an undocumented alien to begin with
Now if Superman would just take all the rest of the illegals with him. Clearly Clark Kent ts no Don Draper.
