I beg your pardon. There's a lot of force of personality there. In fact, that's all there is.

Interesting post at HotAir on Krugman's bizarre nostalgia for the bucolic fifties of his childhood. Of course everything he and the rest of the left now champions is what destroyed that supposed Golden Age, and also of course it took the unparalleled destruction of WWII to bring about a good deal of the 'equality' he seems to cherish. But hey what's a few score million dead if it feeds Paul's nostalgia and proletarian instincts?
The article also describes the essentially reactionary nature of leftism; whatever exists is always inferior to the kingdom they seek to create which always equals some infantile fantasy of a lost golden age, usually the one where their mommy used to tuck them in and read them a story.

clarice

I grew up in the Middle West during the 1950's and in a sense it is Paradise Lost..but that "equality" and "prosperity" owed something to the fact that most of the rest of the world had been devastated in the war and the depression and then the war had made it hard for most people who didn't inherit it or steal it to have a lot of money.

The "force of personality" line reminds me of what we litigators used to say about our tax lawyers: good with numbers, but not enough people skills to be an accountant.

Black and white and red all over, ah hahahahaha.

Be sure to view the video at the end of Iggy's Hot Air link. It's Jon's Show.

But, I see Glenn's point that it wasn't Obama's force of personality that got Obamacare passed, it was those of Pelosi and Reid.

Here is DoT's Legal Insurrection link from the last thread. Obama at the correspondents dinner.

I don't have the words....just sickening.

I'm much more irritated by the idea that this has become a celebrity event. Celebrities already have plenty of events.

I hate it that journalists so crave their company. They aren't going to get that in a Republican administration, and they know it. And they aren't going to get a cool celebrity to come with them if they are too tough on Obama.

Danube of Thought

Obama and Trump take themselves far too seriously; neither man is capable of laughing at himself.

Trump may (or may not) have helped his ratings, but he has certainly established himself as a buffon, if he hadn't done so long ago.

Thomas Collins

DOT's remark about tax lawyers reminds me of a presentation I made to a state agency on a proposed bond financing structure. After the presentation, the agency head thanked me and stated: "You speak very clearly . . . for a tax lawyer."

Thomas Collins

See LUN (via Instapundit) for an article pointing out that although there are still conservatives in the legal profession, Establishment law firms now lean to the prog side of the table. The article also points out that progs really don't follow their statements that everyone deserves vigorous legal representation (for example, it is OK to defend those allegedly engaged in terrorist activities, but not OK to defend DOMA).

MayBee

I love the life my kids have had. They do, too. I know they have wonderful memories.

I loved my own childhood too, although I suspect one reason it seemed like paradise to me was that I wasn't the one paying the bills and worrying about what was on the news.

Janet

I don't see Trump as a buffoon. Not with the BC issue anyway or questioning Obama's life. Who else has taken on Obama? Who else?!? Palin, Beck, Rand Paul, Trump,....
Then there are the Christians that state the truth about Islam...Franklin Graham,Pat Robertson, Hagee,....
The pattern is that any American that is finally brave enough to state the truth is labeled a kook or buffoon.
...while the propaganda machine of the MFM continues.

Well, now, there's a good point (as usual) , MayBee.

DoT:

I don't think so. Trump is the man who did Oreo double-stuff commercials with the SNL guy who does him for skits,competing against the Manning brothers in a fictional competitve eating league -- and losing to them because he and his twin were busy effusively praising one another for their good looks and business acumen.

He does it out of self-interest,of course -- he's created a buffoonish personality that for whatever reason some number of the public eats up,and he is using it to make money.

But he's certainly willing to laugh at himself --as a bufoon-- all the way to the bank.

MarkJ

"Obama and Trump take themselves far too seriously; neither man is capable of laughing at himself."

I guess so, but it'd be refreshing to have Trump as President channeling "Les Grossman" in "Tropic Thunder." Do you think any tin-horn dictator or snot-nose prog journalist would sneer at a Prez who told him, "Now I want you to take a step back... and literally f*** your own face!I will f***ing massacre you! Got that, playa? You're f***ing F.I.R.E.D!"

Ryan's Medicare 'premium support' proposal makes sense to me, and put into effect, wouldn't competition in the insurance industry and Medicare not handling medical payments drive down costs substantially? In my household we're paying the Medicare premiums plus long-term premiums and Medi-gap premiums--not to mention regular life insurance premiums. We're insurance poor, and yet still unsure if we are covered enough for the over sixty age group.

""Nearly half of the money Miller raised in 2010 - $338,223 of $785,103 - was donated after the Oct. 13 announcement that he would be coordinating the 50-state attorneys general investigation," the National Institute on Money in State Politics reported on April 21.

"Iowans shouldn't have to wonder if the national attorneys general settlement with the big banks is being unduly influenced by campaign contributions to Miller, the investigation's top dog.

On April 21, the National Institute on Money in State Politics reported that Miller raised $785,103 in 2010, more than twice the amount he's raised in the last 10 years. Contributions from the finance, insurance and real estate industries in 2010 were 88 percent higher than in the previous decade. More than 63 percent of his 2010 total came from out-of-state donors, compared to less than one-tenth in 2002, the last time prior to 2010 that he ran a contested race."

Clarice,

Did you know that the lock workers are on strike? No worries, Caro will take over and we will get it done.

MayBee:
I love the life my kids have had.

While there is certainly some loss of individual liberty (I Blame Obama!) for kids these days in general,I really feel blessed having ended up in the neighborhood we have.

We're out in the middle of nowhere,and we're surrounded by a bunch of like-minded parents with a lot of kids near the same age.

It's a kind of "it takes a village" community in the very best sense where you know that other parents will look out for your kids without having to be asked (whether to keep them out of danger or to bring the swift force of justice if they are misbehaving).

It's not quite the hop on your bike at dawn and be home by dark days of my youth,but it's probably about as close as you'll find these days. We feel very secure in letting our kids run around with friends without needing uninterupted direct supervision/attention.

Five years ago I nearly took a job in the Dallas area. I grew up in Dallas. I love Dallas. But even though we found a great neighborhood with all sorts of wonderful qualities,we would have been giving up the kind of autonomy a kid can have here.

And then,when we were going through unemployment in 2009,we put the house on the market and told the kids that if it sold we would be moving back to Texas. You should have seen their faces drop at that prospect. And the joy the night we sat together as a family and I got to tell them I had gotten a new job here that meant we wouldn't have to move.

Blessed indeed.

Danube of Thought

Good point, Hit.

Obama is worse than Carter by a large margin. He is willfully destroying the economy and the Republic. Carter was simply incompetent and had his head up his ass. Obama is at the core anti-American.

As to Trump, he is just another oligarch playing the populist card. The man has scammed and snookered his way to fame and a very tenuous fortune. He, along with Immelt, Geithner, and the Pacific Life scammers represents the dark side of American capitalism. There is as much corruption in this administration as in Grants.

MayBee

I believe that a lot of the loss of liberty is a result of increased paranoia of parents. It has turned a lot of parents into veritable captors of their young children, and voyeurs of their older kids.

We have moved a lot, and have always managed to find just the right situation to fit the stage of life the kids were in. Which either means we are the luckiest people in the world (and we are), or that there are still a lot of great options out there in the world.

Should have prefaced my 12:05 comment with 'stuff they discussed on Fox News Sunday'. Wallace did his best to embarrass Michelle Bachmann and render her presidential campaign possibility the dreams of an idiot and ridiculed her intransigence on raising the debt ceiling. Ms Lindsey proved once again why he's McCain's special little twit. Why can't the GOP have a plan for placing intelligent well-spoken guests on the Sunday shows? If it weren't for occasional Brit sightings, I wouldn't bother. Juan has become unbearable.

I know Trump is a buffoon whose personal life and wide financial holdings disqualify him from holding office in the post-JFK days. We know little more about how he would govern than the blind did about Obama. I grant all the criticisms of him and acknowledge all the impediments to his election and, further, confirm the potential harm he could do to a legitimate (born in wedlock?) GOP candidate.

If we stop there, however restful it is to diminish and run, are we not missing something significant? He strikes a chord with the voters. I realize it takes at least 4 chords to made a rock song and his could even be a minor chord, but there is something to be learned from it. Whatever one thought of the failure to produce a BC, Trump rallied the voters and intimidated Obama. No one else had the simple courage to frame the argument, having been bullied out of something simple by the press, including ours, who found the mere asking of the question to be racist and, following along with the Obama themes, “distracting.”

While I’m not certain of what can be learned from the Trump salient, but it is worth watching and worth capturing all maneuvers that undercut the fable Obama has told. I don’t see Romney, The Younger, making this sort of headway nor anyone else among the well-mannered group that seems to be preparing their civilized concession speeches along the way. I think Palin may have slightly opened this door on Obama, but she, too, was repelled by our polite establishment.

Meanwhile, Obama vilifies, extorts, bribes and even invites folks to sit with before him while he scolds them. He’s at what today? 50%. Well then, tell Trump and Palin to tone it down.

Ann

I really enjoyed your column today, Clarice.

Does anyone else think Trump was set up? I do. His ego is so big that he couldn't fathom what they did to him.

I am sure Sarah Palin was first on their list to invite. Wonder if Trump has some sympathy for her this morning. Nah.

Thanks. It wasn't just idle curiosity: my grandson and his bride are doing research to find a place to settle and start a family. Hawaii's too blue (they're avid conservatives), too expensive and probably too confining also. I believe that NC is one of the states they've been considering.

'stuff they discussed on Fox News Sunday'.

Ms Lindsey proved once again why he's McCain's special little twit. Why can't the GOP have a plan for placing intelligent well-spoken guests on the Sunday shows?

Needless to say I agree 100% with this. This Priebis fellow really needs to tighten the reins on the usual suspects that may as well be Schumer in terms of craving camera time while doing nothing to advance any coherent concept of governing. And Chris Wallace really needs to go play with Shemp and Jerry; he obviously gets pleasure out of dinging conservatives and tongue-bathing Dems. His daddy must be so proud.

Insty:

You don’t punish Donald Trump by giving him attention. A more experienced politician would know that. Nor is building Trump up good for Obama — Trump has actually hurt him more than all the others combined. Because, you know, Trump has actually been willing to criticize him without being afraid of the Big Media retribution. The various traditional GOP candidates still have the old cringe-reflex where Big Media criticism is concerned.

My kids are growing up in an area where they can ride their bikes all over New Territory Master planned community (Sugar Land) they just carry a cell and let me know when they move from place to place. Plenty of these communities outside of Houston, planned for the lifestyle you desire. Helps that there is no Metro service to our area. We do not want it.

I hope her motivation is firm, Hit, because she'll need some large feet to land on. The house next door to me is for rent, for $3,250 per month. It would be more, except that there's an absentee owner who has let it run down, and it's not large. Nonetheless, renters will line up to grab it. A one-bedroom apt. in a decent area of Honolulu rents for a couple of grand per month, and everything else is priced accordingly. Hawaii is beautiful and I've loved living here and raising a family here, but more and more it is becoming a place for only the wealthy. I just looked at Greensboro on realtordotcom and if I weren't so long in the tooth I might go there myself. Houses for sale are priced at less than a quarter of what a similar dwelling sells for here, where you're going to be in a hovel unless you have $800k to spend. That's why our kids and nearly all of our friends' kids -- all born and raised in Hawaii -- now live on the mainland. Alas.

Because, you know, Trump has actually been willing to criticize him without being afraid of the Big Media retribution. The various traditional GOP candidates still have the old cringe-reflex where Big Media criticism is concerned.

UPDATE: More here. On the way home from the gym I heard a radio news account with sound bites. Trump had to be smirking at the attention, but it’s a pathetic commentary that the allegedly independent White House Press Corps served as a vehicle for an incumbent President to bash his most vocal challenger. I mean, I know that they’re a bunch of partisan sycophants, but do they have to be so obvious about it?

Despite the overall impression here that Trump is a buffoon, and he may well be, but he is obviously under Obama's skin and the business man's "killer instinct" will make mince meat of the real clown. Remember, none of these people are used to dealing with someone who has made it very clear that any publicity is good publicity and who doesn't give a damn what they think of him so he can say what he wants.

I just don't understand why so many of you can not appreciate Trump. You don't have to vote for him, but, by gosh, he is putting on a damn good show and I, for one, have been enjoying the hell out of it. Now I will wait to see how he "gets even" for last night. Don't get mad, get even, and be sure they spell your name right!

The Eleventh Commandment was a phrase used by former President of the United States Ronald Reagan during his 1966 campaign for Governor of California. The Commandment reads:

He knew better. Is it any wonder the consensus out there is that the Republican roster of potential candidates is called weak? When you have Mark Levin and so many others on national radio and TV spewing hate against so many, when blog comments are filled with hate directed at fellow Republicans and when, IMO, the worst occurs, fellow Republicans believe everything they read in the far left MSM.
