Dumbo knee deep in his own poop, Jennifer Rubin explains that it the policies stupid. That is an lame speech, the only kind of speech Obama can deliver, can not paper over a failed economic policy, from Washington Post :
It is then not so much a lack of “message discipline,”as the punditocracy likes to obsess over, but rather the failure, complete and glaring, of the economic policies of this president that is the problem. Until the White House figures out how to fix its economic agenda it should keep the president inside and under wraps. He does himself no good by revealing that he’s got no clue what to do about the dreadful economy.
More, Peter Wehner, Commentary :
There was not a single bit of good news in the Bureau of Labor report. And watching President Obama this morning try to explain this mess and offer solutions to our predicament was painful. He was reduced to listing as one of his policy recommendations streamlining the patent process. That underscores just how intellectually exhausted the Obama presidency is. They have no more arrows left in their public policy quiver.
This is very corrosive stuff for an American president. And with every passing month, it seems, the news gets worse, our decline seems to accelerate, and the impotence and incompetence of the Obama presidency grows.
Eric rambled :
Casey Anthony, meanwhile, is a despicable excuse for a human being as well for different reasons, but the similarity is that being such does not make one in a legal sense, guilty of anything. Sorry, it just doesn’t.
Casey Anthony is one sorry excuse for a person. I suspect had her jury consisted of twelve mothers, they would have hung her, personally. She appears to have violated every sacrament of motherhood.
Anthony is about to inherit from O.J. Simpson the dubious mantle of the most detested person acquitted of murder.
If I were Hugo Chavez, and made the laws up as I go along, I’d somehow find a one jail cell for Ahthony, Nancy Grace, Janice Hahn. and one of Hahn’s gang intervention specialists.
As for DSK, yes this accuser is less credible than Miss Andrea Sullivan on pregnancy. There physical evidence of sexual activity. I’d make the jury sort this out. Even whores can be raped.
Derek Jeter does in style:
NEW YORK (AP )â€”Derek Jeter(notes) homered for his 3,000th hit and raced right past the milestone in a scintillating performance Saturday, going 5 for 5 with a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning that gave the New York Yankees a 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.
Jeter doubled and had three singles while starting a pair of Yankees rallies and finishing off their last one. He bounced a single through the left side his first time up to give him No. 2,999, then sent a no-doubt drive into the left-field seats off Rays ace David Price(notes) in the third inning.
Call it spiking the baseball.
