Thanks TomM for reading and reporting on this Prog dreck. This is all so predictable-- Obummer's Progism has been a disaster for the country-- no jobs, no growth, food and fuel prices spiraling, and the Dem's will pay the price in '14 and probably '16 elections. So what's a Prog to do in light of this disaster? Blame Obummer, easy! made easier by the fact Obummer really is an incompetent liar and narcissist, so the progs can simply use the truth to blame Obama. The Prog Bus wheels go round and round, round and round... now it's Obummer's turn to be under them.

Thomas Collins

As usual, I will take on the role of Prez 404's greatest defender not only at JOM, but in the entire cosmos. Noone in 2007 and 2008 who (i) paid some attention to what was known about Obama's past pronoucements, and the critical studies/conciliatory internationalist/machine politics milieu in which he operated, (ii) was somewhat observant about the lack of responsible positions Obama held, and (iii) didn't think that writing (or having written for him) memoirs prior to any substantive accomplishment in life, reading reasonably well from a teleprompter and publicly punching a BlackBerry was a sufficient condition for being POTUS, would be at all surprised by the 404 Administration. The failure is largely one of America's media and academic oligarchy to inform the general public of the facts. Barry has just been conforming to what he is.

By the way, I give Barry some credit for being aware enough to realize that the critical studies/leftist schtick needed supplementing by a political machine. He knew he had to mix a Daley nutritional supplement into the Gramsci soup.

So, what we have is one of the most, if not the most, corrupt, leftist and (still) unprepared POTUSes in the history of the US. But one can't say anyone who paid attention wasn't warned.

Meanwhile, who is his likely successor if she is healthy? Why, someone who was one of the primary architects and supporters of the vaunted US foreign policy reset that has worked out so well in the Middle East, Russia and surrounding environs, and Asia.

Jughead's isn't the only regime hit by a Smoking Gun memo. Mini-Me's bunch has been using public funds to campaign against a ballot question that would take down the automatic gas tax hike that was put in place recently.

These bastards want the gas tax to go up automatically so they don't have to be on record as having voted to take more money out of taxpayers hands.

I am glad to see the NYT acknowledge this reality: "vast federal apparatus"

Neo

A transportation proposal sent to Congress by the Obama administration on Tuesday would remove a prohibition on tolls for existing Interstate highways, clearing the way for states to raise revenue on roads that drivers currently use at no cost. Congress banned tolls on Interstates in 1956 when it created the national highway system under President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Can we triple the toll if they have Obama stickers on their cars? ;)

Great, we will finally have Obama act as the President!! (:(

henry

Clarice, there is a new poll that shows it tied right now. I don't really know. The state is closely divided and turnout will be everything once again (esp w/o voter ID). As the Dem hopes for the senate disappear, and Wendy goes under the TX bus, it frees money to chase the closest win the left can get. That may be here -- the source of fracking sand among other Walker related evils.

Jay Carney just told reporters that the uncovered email had nothing to do with Benghazi.

Now remember the email was about prepping Susan Rice for the Sunday shows after 4 Patriots were killed in Benghazi and Hillary was too tired to go.

I'm pretty sure people are laughing at him.

Porchlight

Where Have You Gone, Joe DiMaggio?

What, no Paul Simon arrest reference? And it was in TM's backyard, too.

Great post though.

Porchlight

Rick, sorry I have no suggestions for you - hope you make it back soon.

It is so delicious watching Wendy Davis crash and burn. Too bad she couldn't have sucked more dollars away from other critical races first, though. But it turns out even the Dems aren't that dumb.

Porchlight

From Neo's link about the Obama plan to toll federal highways:

“Tolling has proven to be an inefficient mechanism for collecting transportation revenue, consuming up to 20 percent of revenue generated, and those paying the toll may not even see that road improved because the president’s plan would allow toll revenue to go to other projects in the state,” said Miles Morin, spokesman for the alliance.

"Other projects in the state" = other Dem voters and Dem cronies in the state

Just another wealth transfer. And you watch, they'll time it to kick in after January 2017, so the new Republican president will get the LIV blame.

boatbuilder

Modo seems to have forgotten about LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter and Reagan as well as Clinton--i.e, most of our presidents since 1964. Poor Barry, why didn't he get to be rich growing up? It's all so unfair.

Cap'n,

The mole doesn't actually bother me that much. I think she's an attractive woman - on the outside only, of course.

Stephanie

There was a FB post on the evil men in the republican party saying evil things about Wendy I saw posted the other day. The comments were hilarious as most of the women commenting weren't enamored of her attempt at victim casting. The nays outweighed the yeas about 4 to 1. Quite impressive really as the puff in the story was torn apart by an easy comparison to that evil wikipedia.

It was delish!

Thomas Collins

Obama's POTUSey is best looked at in contrast to James Knox Polk's. The ratio of accomplishment to recognition is infinitesimal in Obama's case, and approaching infinity in Polk's case. Obama wasted stimulus dollars, sold an administrative state behemoth prepaid health plan "reform" that is unadministrable and further threatens the US's financial integrity, and performed a "reset" in world politics that malfunctioned even more than the health plan website. Yet he has been the subject of a creepy charismatic leader type adulation. Polk accomplished needed tariff relief, restructuring of the US banking system, negotiating the Oregon deal with the Brits without going to war, and expanding the southwestern boundaries, all in one term, and is largely ignored.

Captain Hate

I think when Jennifer Granholm had her mole removed, it was linked to her cortex because she's been crazier than ever since then.

Rick's old typepad profile has been deleted. I don't know if he did it intentionally, or if there's a typepad issue with that.

But if you go back to find old Rick comments (that he made while signed in to typepad), they now say "Posted by: Deleted Account" and his nice avatar of the bald eagle has been replaced with...

That's not at all how I pictured his appearance.

He emailed last night and I responded this morning - I'm afraid there's not much I can do - I was powerless to help Mark Folkestad when he was locked out. But I'm willing to try anything and everything.

I will however check with TM to make sure Rick's IP address wasn't inadvertently put on the naughty list.

What happens in Progville as Mighty BOzo continues to strike out? Do you think the chorus of boos will increase or will the dissatisfied boot lickers who greased his way realize the danger to the Fascist Party inherent with criticism of the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT?

If he were capable of learning, then criticism might improve his performance but I am unaware of any evidence of his possession of that capability beyond that displayed by puppets or parrots.

maryrose

Carney is panicking now that his name is linked to the email as one of the {cc} people.Obama will need more than criminal lawyer representation for this outright "cover-up of a cover-up" as Ktauthammer labels it. Hillary too will feel the heat and if protesters start showing up at her talking digs -she is toast. Warren hear we come but Fauxchahontas wil die in 2016 as the economy, inflation and the flawed Aca insure fewer people than in 2009. Unemployment rate will stubbornly stay above 6.5 and fruit and meat will become luxury items

I sure hope I get into a bloody no holds barred fight with my EuroLeft in-laws on what a complete ignoramus the Champ is and how he has endangered them more than they know. Perhaps they are learning that now but we'll see. They are so naive when it comes to the Champ.

It is an established fact that Obama manages from behind because he's usually behind the 8 ball.
I am glad they voted down the wage increase that would destroy jobs. Comments on Politico mostly favor the dems. Of course Pryor can claim he would have voted against it. He's in the fight of life in Arkansas. It reminds me Of hil and Obama and the vote to fund the troops in Iraq. As I recall Bammy voted against our military troops and he still became president. Unbelievable.

Ann,

He will be in Brussels I believe but he should play Gravenstein (Royal Belgium Golf Club) if he is there and enjoys playing great courses because it will humble him to the point he may want to give the game up? Our course is Royal Antwerp but if he doesn't speak French he will probably be ignored. How do you think he'll like that?

Tolls on Interstates are not new policy recommendations. I remember back when I was there while Bush 41 was POTUS that Sam Skinner and his DoT minions were looking at it to fund high speed rail and maglev on the interestate ROWs'. Same with Clenis' first term.

Posted by: maryrose | April 30, 2014 at 04:26 PM-

suppose it is moot now, and fixating on it is unproductive. As far as pay goes, I was probably middle of the pack (but probably one of the highest paid for my time in service at the company) and researching it my salary wasn't out-of-line for the area. My guess is it comes down to 3 things: smoking, working a nonstandard work schedule because of school, and a keystroke logger on my username so they could follow along with my comments at various websites (YIKES!!).

The first two would have contributed to a sense for senior management* (and I contributed to this) that I was too self-indulgent with the job or that I wasn't the type of employee they wanted around longer term (not fitting in with the corporate culture, as it were). The last one, I made some intemperate remarks every once in a while (mostly at Ace's), but nothing that I don't think hundreds of other employees would have made at say facebook or other message boards and nothing about the company directly (mostly stuff about school and goofing off-stuff that ultimately hurts my reputation but could be construed as a violation of the firm's social media policy).

*i had recognized that senior management was walking the floor at strange times of the day (definitely strange if I saw them given my work hours) and the word I got was that some really wanted to drop the hammer-things like "convicts running the prison" and that "it was time to show who was boss".

More importantly, I wasn't surprised that a lay off was coming, but like I said before, I am just stumped as to what sort of mathematical wizardry would have put me at the bottom of the shop. I worked the holidays, weekends, small hours of the morning-efficiently, mistake free, and usually without complaint. I managed to do all that while taking a 3/4's load at school in a serious degree program and maintaining good (great!) gpa. It felt like a disciplinary action, and I wasn't once informed as to what or why I was being disciplined for.

NK(withnewsoftware)

$4/Gal regular.. yeah... tolls on interstates will go over well.

The Ct Turnpike (I-95) had tolls until 1984 or so, what was up with that?

Thomas Collins

Rick B, I think the progs are in the process of developing talking points that focus on Obama's management style as being too above the fray, on supposed GOP intransigence, and on foreign policy mistakes that happened after Hillary Clinton left the Secretary of State position. Look for prog undercutting of Kerry. The progs need to achieve the following balance: Critique the Obama Administration in a way that (i) ignores the failure of progism itself and focuses on lack of administrative skills, and (ii) distances Hillary Clinton from the current and future foreign policy disasters. Pretty soon, we'll be seeing NY Times articles on how Hillary viewed the reset in a different manner from Obama, that Hillary's was a more "trust but verify" approach in contrast to Obama's softer approach.

Although there will be progs who will speak ill of the Clintons, the center of gravity of prog strategy over the next couple of years will be to pave the way for a Hillary Clinton POTUSey.

Well, you're traveling through some of the biggest states, that's for sure. Have fun even if you don't wander into Idaho. We hit Yellowstone four years ago and Old Faithful went off precisely as we got there. Jackson Hole is gorgeous. That would be quite a haul up to Glacier, however.
