Twenty-seven days.

Clarice

Ditto..well, I don't know about the Hillary part, I've got my fingers crossed for Biden or Kerry.

Must be racism. Haters.

The new Obama re-election ad

Dave, Rocco, TC, did you read about Mrs. Tierney? (She is the new Monica COnyers)

We tried to invite Senator Kerry to the Tea party but he doesn't do email.

If I were to pick one race as an illustration of the middle class rejection of the Obamunist Party, I'd go with West Virginia. Manchin was very popular as a Democrat and appears headed for a loss solely due to the taint of Obamunism.

It really looks like the Obamunist Party is going to be a Blue Hell Special limited edition.

He did before he didn't.

"He did before he didn't."

Must not have passed the Global Test.

Unexpected:

ADP reported a surprise decline in jobs for September. The company said that 39,000 jobs were lost, missing expectations for a 18,000 gain according to Finviz. However, the previous month's jobs decline was reported higher, from a 10,000 loss to a 10,000 gain.

The decline in private employment in September confirms a pause in the economic recovery already evident in other data. A deceleration of employment occurred in all the major sectors shown in The ADP Report and for all sizes of payroll. The September decline in employment followed seven monthly increases from February through August. However, over those seven months, the average monthly gain in employment was 34,000. There simply is no momentum in employment.

He may have trouble with the fellas, but President Smooth sure knows how to talk to the ladies:
“I’m thrilled to be here tonight with some of the most brilliant, most accomplished, most influential women in this country,” the president said. “As Michelle Obama’s husband, I feel very much at home.”

Who could fail to be flattered by that comparison?

Jane (sit on the couch or save your country)

Oh my Gawd - how many of the women there barfed?

Porchlight

Was that before or after the Presidential Seal fell off the lectern?

We cannot sustain -- oops -- was that my? (Laughter.) Oh, goodness. That’s all right. (Laughter.) All of you know who I am. (Laughter and applause.) But I’m sure there’s somebody back there that’s really nervous right now. (Laughter.) Don’t you think? They’re sweating bullets back there right now. (Laughter.)

Don't you like how he says "my" when he refers to the seal? He does the same thing with the White House.

And he doesn't even pick it up. Just jokes about the staffers in the back being nervous.

What a guy.

Jane (sit on the couch or save your country)

Porch - don't forget the "All of you know who I am" part.

Gawd he is one weenie narcissist.

bgates

Fell? Or jumped?

Porchlight

Fell? Or jumped?

Jumped! Clinging to guns and religion all the way down.

I see our Coward-in-Chief is leaving the country for 12 days - 2 days after the elections.

It saves not only him, but the MFM - they can ask all the pandering questions about his trip, instead of about the humiliating defeat of him and his party at the polls.

OH and Rasmussen has the depressing news that Blumenthal has a double digit lead over McMahon in CT.

Dave (in MA)

Jane, "how dumb?" Pretty damned dumb.

Jane (sit on the couch or save your country)

Where is he going CC? Do I need to warn my Aussie friends?

I think McMahon is gonna win.

The DSCC http://www.nationalreview.com/campaign-spot/248920/dscc-spending-nearly-2-million-connecticut>doesn't appear confident of that supposed margin.
Danube of Thought

My guess is McMahon, Fiorina and and O'Donnell lose, but Rossi, Angell and Kirk win.

Janet

Just seeing videos online...that Blumenthal is really unappealing. Kinda creepy.

MayBee

All of you know who I am. (Laughter and applause.)

Yeah, but they make sure to post that seal every time he steps foot behind a podium.

Ignatz

--My guess is McMahon, Fiorina and and O'Donnell lose, but Rossi, Angell and Kirk win.--

Unfortunately I believe you're right DoT.
I had high hopes for Fiorina but there are just too many leeches in this state apparently, so it's down the tubes CA goes.

MayBee

Isn't it condescending to get up in front of a group of female business leaders and talk about his wife?
If they loved his wife and thought she was so interesting, they would have invited her to speak to them.

"I know all about what you little ladies like. I have a wife."

Clarice

Yeah..One very late night I'll tell you about attending a congressional wives luncheon as a Senators wife thirty years ago..reminds me of this believe it or not..Then the wives were all introduced as Mrs, Senator__ or Mrs. Congressman___. It wa the most awful event I ever was forced to attend. And you do not want to hear about the food or wine. It was from something out of Lilek's book of execrable cooking.

Old Lurker

"it's down the tubes CA goes."

Iggy, I had dinner recently with the head of a department at one of the UC schools. This guy and his equally accomplished wife had been heavily recruited to move their research to said campus "in the good times". Seeing the same handwriting on the wall you cite above, they are entertaining moving their research and their people lock stock and barrel to Texas.

bgates

I know all about what you little ladies like. I have a wife.

If you gals run your publicly traded Fortune 500 corporations as efficiently as Michelle washes my socks, we'll have this recession licked in no time!

Old Lurker

Clarice & bgates...about the time Clarice was attending that dinner, the clubs in DC maintained private entrances for the wives of members, for those times when women were permitted to attend.

MayBee

Urg, I can imagine Clarice. I recently finished a biography of Julia Childs, and she was distraught by the food served at important government affairs.

MayBee

Obama last night: "So, I know what it took for all you gals to get to the top of the business world. A husband elected to the US Senate, amiright?"

DrJ

they are entertaining moving their research and their people lock stock and barrel to Texas.

This may be OT, but I'd be interested on how they would do this. The equipment they bought through grants is the property of their current University, as are the grants themselves. How can they afford to do this? A large start-up package ($2 million or so) from the putative new school?

bgates

"But through all the challenges of the economy I inherited, thanks to the stimulus money I provided you have managed to keep your business doing well, and yourselves looking good."

"...Enough."

MayBee

MayBee

"And to show how seriously I take all you chicks' concerns, I'm sending my wife to New York to appear with Sarah Jessica Parker! and Patti LaBelle!"

Old Lurker

"A large start-up package ($2 million or so) from the putative new school?"

Precisely, DrJ.

DebinNC

Jane asked about O's trip:


"..Obama will leave Washington DC on November 4 night.. He will be away from the U.S for almost 12 days, the longest tour during his presidency, touching India, Indonesia, Japan, and South Korea, before returning to Washington DC on November 14."

Trip originally planned to begin Nov. 6.

Porchlight

Trip originally planned to begin Nov. 6.

Hey Bammers, leave November 1st. You know you want to. Go for it!

Clarice

**as the GUEST OF a Senator's wife***(I never was nor would I even entertain the thought of marrying a Senator)
O.L. the wine was some bright pink swill and the meal ended with pale pink and green mints and in between there was nothing on the plate harder than a marshmallow or brighter colored than a mashed potato.

bgates

"Just remember, when your husband wants the car to go forward, he puts the gear shift in D, like Democrat, and when he puts the gear shift in R, for reverse, that's like Republican, which also starts with 'R'. And the 'D' on the gear shift actually stands for 'drive'."

"Nothing, huh? You ladies must not pay attention to the nuts and bolts of driving. Oh, well. All of you know how funny I am. (Laughter and applause.) But I’m sure there’s somebody back there that’s really nervous right now. (Laughter.) Don’t you think? They’re sweating bullets back there right now, for planting a dud line that women can't possibly relate to in my speech."

"Well, I bet they're on edge now, knowing that one phone call from me to Rahm's brother and it's good-bye post-White-House Hollywood career, hello intensive look from the IRS at whether buying kegs for a Georgetown frat party counts as a business expense."

"Yeah, I bet they're pretty God-damn nervous back at the speechwriters' table, aren't you, boys?"

MayBee

"Hey sweeties. Won't one of you go back and cheer up my speechwriters?
Sit on their laps or something."

Clarice

And people wonder why MO always looks grumpy.

bgates

"Well, you've been a great audience, but SportsCenter is coming on in a few minutes, and besides I don't want to get any of you in trouble for not getting tomorrow's suit ironed for the man of the house. So good night, and be sure to remember to ask hubby's permission to send in a donation to the party when you get home."

Porchlight

So good night, and be sure to remember to ask hubby's permission to send in a donation to the party when you get home."

"I know he's probably already giving you a hard time about the charge accounts at the department stores. Because you ladies are looking fine!"

MayBee

"Can I ask you fine looking ladies something? Just a little question from your President. Something I really need to know from the women of this country. Do a lot of you travel for pleasure on your husband's birthday?"

Deb:
Trip originally planned to begin Nov. 6.

Actually,originally planned for the spring. Then the summer. Obama's tried twice already to go to Indonesia. Had to cancel http://articles.latimes.com/2010/jun/04/nation/la-na-obama-indonesia-australia-20100605>twice so far. First time he cancelled to get ObamaCare shoved up our rectums. In June he cancelled because he had to figure out whose rectum to kick over the oil spill.

Thing is,those past trip plans included Australia. The current plans have him skipping it.

Maybe the dingo ate his baby?

Rick Ballard

Hit,

Do you suppose that he might be avoiding "Obama Receives Biggest Electoral Ass Kicking in History" headlines in English?

bgates

In English, Rick, but those Taiwanese computerized video dramatizations will follow him to the ends of the earth.

Do you suppose that he might be avoiding "Obama Receives Biggest Electoral Ass Kicking in History" headlines in English?

Nah, that can't be it. I suspect he thinks they speak Australian in Australia.
