Dumbo’s Economics, how bad are Barack Obama’s economic policies? So bad that his own chief of staff, Bill Daley has trouble defending them, from Matthew Boyle, Daily Caller :
White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley took heat from business executives Thursday for the Obama administration’s regulatory expansions. Daley also said he didn’t have any good answers for some of what President Obama is doing and expressed frustration about the “bureaucratic stuff that’s hard to defend.”
“Sometimes you can’t defend the indefensible,” Daley said at a National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) meeting.
Daley couldn’t answer basic questions and continually faced criticism from the executives in the room
Hat tip: Nice Deb .
Geraghty’s Law- 1, Libtards – 0, Netroots runs smack into Geraghty’s Law, from Jim Geraghty, National Review :.
All Barack Obama statements come with an expiration date. All of them.
From John Aravosis, America Blog :
White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer told the Netroots Nation blog conference this morning that the Barack Obama never filled out the 1996 questionnaire, when he was running for the Illinois legislature, in which he averred that he supports gay marriage. The questionnaire – two questionnaires in fact – have been out there for years – 15 years in fact – and it has caused the President, who now claims to oppose marriage equality for gay couples, a good amount of heartburn as reporters, such as the Blade’s Chris Johnson, keep asking the White House it
B.J. Clinton was called a particularly adept liar. In contrast, Obama is just a liar.
Where will the Weiner go? Anthony Weiner, late of the House of Representatives, has no job and no job skills, from Michelle :
But make no mistake: Weiner has no plans on toiling among the masses. This week’s resignation speech sounded like a future campaign kick-off: “I’ll be looking for other ways to contribute my talents,” he signaled, “so that we live up to that most New York and American of ideals. The ideal that a family, a community, and ultimately a country is the one thing that unites us. The one thing that we’re all focused on. With God’s help and with hard work we will all be successful.”
How, exactly, is a serial liar who antagonized his own liberal media allies by calling them “jackasses,” who countenanced libelous attacks on conservative bloggers, and who threw his own family under the bus to save his political hide in a position to “unite” us all? And what, pray tell, are these “talents” of which he speaks?
Is that CNN I hear beckoning the Weiner?
A postmortem on Weinergate:
Weiner is a victim of web-driven macho partisan cocooning. That is, it was the fight-back partisanship of the Daily Kos community that gave him a group of linked-up followers he could make himself a hero of. This included dozens or more women (real or virtual) who idolized him whom he could contact in the space of a coffee break. Weiner was arrogant enough to think he could get away with recklessly exploiting his fame and status in this Web niche in part because he figured his pack would always defend him in a pinch. He was too essential to the fight. The ingenious instant wisdom of the Kos crowd would be too powerful in a clinch. He was almost right about that, though in the end it proved a delusion-a delusion encouraged and enabled by the cocooning phenomenon itself, by the always-on flock of “Weiner, yes” netizens giving him positive feedback for whatever he thought or did
Sounds a lot like Rush. Is it?
