Breakfast Scramble: Thaddeus McCotter Announces

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
In order for Americans to get their jobs back, Barack Obama must lose his, from Shannon Travis:

Des Moines, Iowa (CNN [1]) – Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is getting more creative, and apparently more aggressive, in her political attacks against President Barack Obama.

On Saturday, the Minnesota congresswoman took fresh jabs at the president. In one instance, Bachmann said she hoped to oust him from his current employment, become president herself – and then help Obama find a job. Bachmann also blasted “Obamacare,” saying it would cost American jobs and questioning if Obama “was in his right mind” for championing it.

MoreĀ  from the Sharp Tack, Clarice Feldman, American Thinker: [2]

I think we’ve reached a similar turning point in this presidency where (a) Obama’s (and Michelle’s) delusions of grandeur have become objects of ridicule; b) Obama’s feet of clay are obvious. He may be the only person left in Washington who has not yet realized how inadequate he is to the tasks before him; (c) the people and the press are beginning to turn on him, and as his failures become even more obvious with each passing day, more people will feel free to attack him and his policies and their attacks will become ever more savage as the gap between the promise and reality grow ever more stark.

Obama entered office on a groundswell of a disconcerting mania, a mania in which voters imagined on this blank slate of a candidate all sorts of truly fantastic abilities and policies, none of which were warranted in his paltry, truly shabby history.

The man with no available school records, for example, was painted as a genius and his brief time as a University of Chicago adjunct (basically teaching assistant) puffed up to a professorship in constitutional law. The guy who cannot speak a logical, coherent, grammatical sentence on his own was pawned off as a literary genius to unsuspecting, foolish voters. It was inevitable that the reality of his time in office could never match the dream. It was unfortunately equally inevitable that he would prove inadequate to the difficult job of the presidency.

Obama’s Economists: Each Job ‘Saved or Created’ by the Stimulus Cost $278,000 (So Far)

As Jeffrey Anderson at the Weekly Standard [4] pointed out, the White House releasing a fiscal report on the Friday before a long holiday weekend can only mean one thing: There’s not much good news in it for the White House, and, ergo, taxpayers.

As Herm said, Dumbo could not run a pizza parlor.

Pinch Sultzberger on shit, from the New York Slimes [5]:

IT turns out that the good times are even better than we thought for American chief executives.

A preliminary examination of executive pay in 2010, based on data available as of April 1, found that the paychecks for top American executives were growing again, after shrinking during the 2008-9 recession.

If I were so stupid as to own shares in the New York Times, is would be my business how much money its publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr. made.  As do not, Pinch’s compensation is none of my business.  Way anybody at the Slimes is worried about any executive compensation other than Pinch’s is simply beyond me

Hat tip: Nice Deb [6].

I’ve seen bigger, noisier crowd.  I have heard more passion.  But I have seldom heard a candidate make more sense, nor be more willing to play with the band.
