It's the birth certificate, stupid.

Remember what smear that site was set up for.
=========================

bunky

Evan we hardly knew ye.

Charlie (Colorado)

You know, I don't think Saturday Night Live in its heyday could have made a more effective satire of an ineffective clueless President.

narciso

So, this the Plouffe response, trying toreset the last year, as if he had any credibility
left, same for Biden

Sue

The front page of Politico is all Cheney/Biden and how the WH is so ready for this fight with Cheney, because of his low poll numbers. I am reminded of another fight with another personality that had low poll numbers. How'd that work out for them? I think Limbaugh won.

Captain Hate

Toonces still thinks the problem is that people aren't understanding his message? God almighty, aren't there any adults there?

They didn't need to -- their heyday was during the Carter years.

Neo

Team Obama is still stuck in their "social cascade" that has him in the center of the universe.
Hey, keep it up. I couldn't think of a better strategy for them to complete their self-destruction.

Charlie (Colorado)

God almighty, aren't there any adults there?

That's a rhetorical question, right?

Ignatz

When your most high profile respondant is a smirking, sarcastic, unctuous dunce like Gibbs it seems to me the speed of the response is not the problem.
This is just an extension of Barry's inane, smug fantasy that his agenda is on the ropes because we poor rubes just haven't yet had it explained to us in one syllable words.

Danube of Thought

Interesting factoid about the nutball Alabama murderer:

"A family source said Bishop, a mother of four children - the youngest a third-grade boy - was a far-left political extremist who was 'obsessed' with President Obama to the point of being off-putting."

"Oh, good, a recognition that speed is of the essence in dealing with one's adversaries", is what I'd say if this concerned funding ballistic missile defense, deploying troops in Afghanistan, or interrogating captured terrorists.

Frau Rosenmontag

narciso, are you in Dayton?

Hey, I hope this stays a Good News Day. Be sure to read Chris Muir's strip about Capt. America and his faithful servant, er, sidekick Rubber Chicken.

TM's link to Jonah Goldberg:
"This is a new streamlined, retooled, cowbell 2.0 strategy. Faster, more efficient and more selective bell-ringing will turn things around for the White House. Moreover, they're telling us in advance how they're going to crank this cowbell to eleven."

When you say "bullshit" twice as fast, it's still bullshit.

E. Nigma

Now, witness the power of this fully operational Fast Response Team in action!

With Peter Griffin, er Gibbs, in the loop, what could go wrong?

Well here's the problem:

In a Q&A Saturday at the NYU Islamic center, John Brennan defended the WH estimate that 1 of 5 detainees return to terror activities:

"People sometimes use that figure, 20 percent, say 'Oh my goodness, one out of five detainees returned to some type of extremist activity,'" Brennan said. "You know, the American penal system, the recidivism rate is up to something about 50 percent or so, as far as return to crime. Twenty percent isn't that bad."

Sounds like a job for the faster fast response team.


MaryD

Captain Hate, I've been noticing your references to Toonces, and had no idea what they meant, so I just googled the name. I am rolling on the floor over "Toonces Without A Cause" and "Toonces versus Spunky".
Thanks for the really great laughs.
P.S. The Obama/Toonces analogy is perfection.

Ignatz

What does it say about Barry & Co that they will have this fast response team, to counter their domestic critics, up and running in a tiny fraction of the time they had their tough guy interrogation team ready for terrorists?
Nothing good comes to mind.

Captain Hate

MaryD, comedy will get us through this.

bgates

Twenty percent isn't that bad

What was the rate for the guys FDR locked up?

Besides the ones he executed, I mean.

fdcol63

Dead terrorists have a recidivism rate of 0%.

That should be our goal.

Jane

That should be our goal.

WEll except that we lose an awful lot of intelligence that way.

Frankly I can't see the point of waging war in Afghanistan. WE should be figuring out the terrorists plans and and thwarting them.

It's a lot smarter to concentrate on and utilize our toehold in Iraq it seems.

Old Lurker

"WEll except that we lose an awful lot of intelligence that way."

He did not say at what point they become dead.

fdcol63

Exactly, OL.

Jane, my goal included first getting all useful intelligence from them, and not releasing them before they became "dead". LOL

I'd rather not fight in Afghanistan, either, but if we leave I think we risk leaving the Taliban in a strong position to jeopardize the stability of the Pak government, which I don't think we want to do since they have nukes.

matt

so the Ministry of Propaganda didn't quite get the message across, and the first truth squad didn't work out too well, and administration apologists like Beckel have been reduced to out and out lies.

The clown and pony show is running out of tricks.....and we are seeing the Great Oz exposed behind the curtain. It has become a pitiful farce.

clarice

Let's just get thru his own term without a disaster. Please God.

Janet

I forget who said it here on JOM, but it must be terrible to wake up and find out all your ideas are stupid.
...and there sits the MSM nodding their heads and emitting oooooohs and aaaaaaahs over the nonsense pontifications of this administration. I can't even watch it any more.

daddy

If I understand this strategy correctly, it is the equivalent of suggesting 1 of our trolls S@#t in the punchbowl even quicker in order to win our hearts and minds. Is that about it?

Rob Crawford

Not quite. S@#tting in the punchbowl is an action. What they're saying is that they're going to be even quicker to deny that what you see in the punchbowl is, in fact, s@#t.

PD

Toonces still thinks the problem is that people aren't understanding his message?

When it's that or entertaining the proposition that we are dead set against him because he's WRONG, it's an easy choice.

daddy

Thank you Rob C for that insightful clarification:)

J. Peden

Toonces still thinks the problem is that people aren't understanding his message?

Yes, it's true, even "speaking in flowery tongues" doesn't really work.

WestWright

I now see the whole Dem strategy for the 2010 elections, 3rd stimulus to fund rapid response teams aka Acorn, NOI & Union thugs for each Dem candidate. Not only will this create millions of jobs, the voters will know what they must do.

srp

Minitruth will soon be funding bigger and faster memory holes.
