Stale Obama Banana Nut Bread Goes Moldy

26 July 2011 @ 10:55

Yet another day, yet another royal speech from Little Lord Hemorrhoid…

-When Pat Austin gets riled-up, you best be getting out of the way. She took one for the VRWC Team and actually sat through Little Barry’s pablum puke. Brave gal. For us, though, we have been rewarded by a delightful Fisking of The Smartest Brat In The Room. A highlight:

Now, check this segment:

Understand – raising the debt ceiling does not allow Congress to spend more money. It simply gives our country the ability to pay the bills that Congress has already racked up. In the past, raising the debt ceiling was routine. Since the 1950s, Congress has always passed it, and every President has signed it. President Reagan did it 18 times. George W. Bush did it 7 times. And we have to do it by next Tuesday, August 2nd, or else we won’t be able to pay all of our bills.

He says "Congress" has racked up these bills as if he is totally blameless. Like, he didn’t sign any of them, they just slipped on through. He didn’t push anything through or orchestrate like the Wizard behind the curtain. But, we’re too stupid to catch that.

And all that business about former presidents raising the debt ceiling? Is he aware that he’s racked up more debt during his administration than all previous administrations put together? That sort of matters in this argument, I think.

Well done, Pat.

-Stacy McCain watched part of it, but, wisely, turned to more important matters.

-He also has video of Democratic Senator Pete Stark standing out in stark contrast to his fellow Corruptocrats.

-In posting about Barack The Unready’s failures in foreign policy, Stacy makes an observation that can be applied to the whole of it:

You know who’s smiling now? Jimmy Carter.

Because Jimmy’s well on his way to becoming the second-worst president in American history.

‘On his way’??? Man, he’s already arrived, checked-in, and filled the ice bucket.

-Over at The Conservatory, Dan Collin’s watched the speech this morning and offers his usual perceptive commentary here.

-Little Miss Attila has the videos of the various actors in this soap opera here.

-Over at The Corner, Andrew McCarthy has some damn good questions for Cryin’ John ‘The Cheap Suit’ Boehner about his plan [worth quoting in full]:

I’d love to believe the Boehner plan is not a joke, really I would. But I see that, right away, Obama gets a $1 trillion credit extension (our current $14.3 trillion credit line apparently not being enough) while the “real” cuts in spending — which are trumpeted because they purportedly exceed the increase in the debt ceiling — will supposedly take place over the course of a decade. You have to say “purportedly” and “supposedly” because whatever this Congress does cannot bind any future Congress. (Has this Congress seemed to you like they feel bound by anything Congress did on spending in 2001?) The only cuts that really matter are the ones made today. So, leaving aside several other misgivings about the Boehner proposal — i.e., before we ever get to the other $1.5 trillion credit expansion President Obama would get next year, and the blue-ribbon committee half-staffed by Harry Reid that is going to solve all our spending problems — I have just one question: Mr. Speaker, what are the cuts that will be made now in exchange for permitting the president to sink us another $1 trillion into the hole?

It’s definitely a joke, but, like I react after hearing Conan O’Brien tell one, I ain’t laughing.

Boehner has caved so much in his career, his tears are now turning into stalagmites.

-Keith Hennessey commented:

The president’s speech was notable only for what he did not say: “I will veto the Boehner bill.”

The rest of it was effective campaign rhetoric but has little relevance to what happens over the next week.

By not threatening a veto of the Boehner bill, the president leaves the door open to signing it.

The question now is whether 218 House Republicans can vote for and pass the Boehner bill before the president regains his footing.

First of all: the House Repubs better not vote for what I have named The Folded Like A Cheap Suit Bill. Secondly, a question: in order to regain his footing, will Little Barry need corrective shoes?

-Finally, he’s done it again [how does he do it?]: Paco has obtained a picture of our Fearless Leader giving his little speech last night that is unfiltered by the MSM Photo-Tuner.

    The clownish clod is gonna go full blown mental on tv soon, I can just feel it.

    I didn’t watch him, I don’t wanna puke and get a headache. Reading about it now….nothing new here, just more lies and calling in his thugs to go protest. He should STFU and resign and join the circus, they wouldn’t want him either! Funny pic from paco 😉

    Bunni: Can’t you just picture him stamping his feet like a little kid denied his candy?

    I’m with Bunni. He isn’t equipped for the strain, and he sure as hell isn’t accustomed to accountability.
