Good grief. This is the oddest football game ever. And I'm not watching it.

Danube of Thought

Sorry, Walter, but as you can now see, Ben/Dana was unaware of the level of government "interference" in the existing grid, and was lamenting its absence. And lamenting it in the only way he knows how: by avoiding the simple declarative sentence as Dracula avoids the crucifix.

We must assume that this is the same level of erudition he displayed to his third-rate sophomores (the ones who couldn't get into the UC system) at his third-rate college. We might also assume that they were dazzled, but their reviews suggest otherwise.

Dave (in MA)

When I'm gassing up the jalopy with $3.70/g for regular instead of listening to More Mush From The Wimp '11, why do I have to be subjected to PumpTopTv blasting LetsMove.gov messages at me?

Ben Franklin

I am surprised you don't evoke 'Pitzer' as some model of personal
credibility. There has been insufficient input from the Gubmint.

Hence, the irresponsible maintenance of same.

Janet

I think MO looks like she could use a few loopy pills

Yeah, more than a few maybe. FLOTUS has been MIA lately.
I looked for a pic of Hillary, but the only ones I could find weren't too bad....she did look worn out on TV though. Getty was covering for her.

Comanche Voter

Poor old Boehner. Having to sit behind Oboz whilst he spews nonsense--and keeping a straight face. Good for him.

Danube of Thought

"... the road, bridge, dam, highway and power grid potholes dotting the Nation."

I don't note them? Good God, man--they weigh on me constantly! And so it is with all my friends. One can scarcely conclude a conversation without someone exclaiming, "what is to be done about these potholes!" Or, perhaps more frequently, "By Jove, sir, did you see that bridge?" And already vox populi is loudly demanding more government interference in the power grid; many are proposing that the interfering be done bt the postal workers who are about to be laid off.

Porchlight

It's a shootout!

So much for my NO defense in my fantasy league.

As I said, "D" needs time to gel. In free market terms, the discord needs to reach sympathetic harmony, as we know it will.

It is not possible for anyone to evoke [sic] Pitzer as a model of personal credibility.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vnjagvet

Was it my lack of attention or did he skip his pet "green jobs" scheme?

I agree, Comanche Voter....Boehner did well. A nice look of boredom, but not too disrespectful.

Boehner's written statement:

“As I said last night, over this weekend Congress will forge a responsible path forward. House and Senate leaders will be working to find a bipartisan solution to significantly reduce Washington spending and preserve the full faith and credit of the United States."

He does show a breathtaking ignorance, Danube, on a whole host of issues, I assume
that means he's auditioning to write for the LA Times

Could O unionize the military with an executive order? Didn't Kennedy do something similar with the federal government and an executive order?

Here is the new Ulsterman insider:

Danube of Thought

"Ask your chauffeur.......obviously you haven't noticed...."

How could anyone not have noticed? It's the talk of the nation! Some fools say this election will turn on the economy. Dana and I know that it will actually turn on those infernal potholes that have caused the nation to rise as one and demand action!

What would we do without "political scientists?"

DrJ

It is not possible for anyone to evoke [sic] Pitzer as a model of personal credibility.

I knew Ken Pitzer, and he was the model of personal credibility. I won't blame him for his father's actions.

Ben Franklin

"He does show a breathtaking ignorance, Danube, on a whole host of issues,"


Brilliant retort.

Inane; but certainly brilliant when measured by your own demonstrated ability to communicate your research skills.

DebinNC

Herman Cain's pithy reaction:

"We waited 30 months for this?"

I hope Cain hangs in there as long as possible. He's not tearing anyone down but King Putt.

Ben Franklin

" Dana and I know that it will actually turn on those infernal potholes that have caused the nation to rise as one and demand action!"

At least I understand your white-knuckle grip on ideology
common to the wealthy. Voting in favor of your self-interest
makes some sense. Those who drive to work understand what I'm talking about. And when it does reach your insulated world....like losing electricity, you still don't get it.


henry

Gee Dana, every road I drive on in my daily commute either was rebuilt last year, or is in process this year. Potholes are no more, construction delays are the real problem.

narciso

William Jacobsen sums up the spectacle we were just witness too,

What a horrendous event. It truly was, a 40 minute attack on Republicans (sometimes explicitly, sometimes implicitly) with a series of straw man arguments. This was a stump speech by someone who abused his office by commandeering our nation’s chamber and networks to launch his campaign.

OT, I had perused Anthony Summer's '11th Day' as my earlier thread, and I gave my evaluation of it, it has some interesting
details like the Ghezzawi story, which were
not fleshed out, I didn't see the footnotes,
but from San Diego and Bassnan, Thumairy,
and Aulaqi, coincidence seems rather unlikely. The tie to El Shukrijumah, who now has graduated to AQ's No. 3. makes that
an even more curious circumstance

Danube of Thought

"Those who drive to work understand what I'm talking about."

Those of us who drive to our chic shopping malls, our country clubs, our vacations in Yosemite and to see our grandchildren up and down the state of California obviously travel on a different set of roads.

Once you turn off and head for a jerkwater college, it's a perfect third-world nightmare of potholes. And it's all because the government has interfered too much. Or hasn't interfered enough. Which is it, Dana? Can you for once screw up your courage and answer a question?

narciso

Ghezzawi is described on the note for pg 416,
as one of the Saudis with Royal family connections, whose house, the hijackers had visited, he doesn't actually show up in the index, so the McClatchy story, actually counts
as original reporting,

Former Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.), who resigned from the House in early August because of an alleged sexual encounter with the daughter of a donor, made a surprise appearance at President Obama’s Thursday address to Congress.

Oil Industry Update

Today I find this story about Congressman Ed Markey and the Democrats: House Democrats: Don’t count on oil industry for jobs.

The plan seems to be that the Dems and Markey will say that US Oil Drilling doesn't create US Oil jobs, so tax incentives to the big Oil companies should be eliminated.

"Democrats on the House Natural Resources Committee released a report today that concluded that the nation’s five biggest publicly traded oil companies have been paring their GLOBAL workforce even as they rake in big profits."

"Markey, the top Democrat on the panel, says the findings buck the argument that the oil and gas industry could generate new jobs in America if given greater access to U.S. lands and waters."

“Oil companies that make record profits and then cut American jobs strain their own credibility when they claim to be huge job creators,” Markey said."

The story concludes: "Markey is using the report to make the case that tax incentives reserved for the industry are unnecessary relics that should be repealed."

When I look at the actual report justifying the above conclusion this is the only mention they make of job losses in the US Oil Industry:

"...between 2005 and 2010, ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell and BP combined to reduce their US workforce by 11,200 employees over that time."


Gosh, thats a head-scratcher. What could have possibly caused job losses in the Oil Industry in 2010?

25 Gulf oil rigs shutting down in deepwater drilling moratorium.

Any potential Job Loss associated with that Shut Down?

"The Interior Department report revised what it originally predicted would be 23,000 jobs lost due to the moratorium to a job loss between 8,000 and 12,000."

Thats a pretty good Gawdam Catch 22!

Salazar: "Shut down 25 Oil rigs for at least 6 months."

Big Oil: "Okay."

Interior Dept: "That'll cost you between 8,000 and 23,000 jobs."

Big Oil: "Okay."

Markey and the Dems: "You lose tax incentives for Oil Drilling because you lost 11,200 jobs as a result of shutting down those Oil Rigs for 6 months, you greedy bastards!"


Pops

Remember the bad old days when the Bush adminstration would raise the alert level claiming they had intelligence about a terrorist threat.

Isn't it so much better now that Janet Napolitano tells us one day that their are no threats to the next day pulling her air out and running and sreaming for the exits
due to hundreds of terrorists with car bombs maginally appearing in New York and Washington.

Ohh, its so much better now....

SEPT 3nd: The U.S. government is not aware of any specific threat of a terrorist attack to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said in a statement Friday.

Sept 8th: RUN FOR YOUR LIVES OR YOUR ALL DEAD!!

daddy

Even better on Oil Drilling jobs.

Here's Dem Senator Mark Begich's written response after hearing the President's speech tonight:

"If the President would green-light development projects in Alaska’s Arctic, which he could do with a directive from his office, we could create thousands of jobs in Alaska and across the country. Just this week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said development in the Arctic could create more than 50,000 jobs in the coming years. That’s more jobs than the entire nation created throughout the month of August. The President should exercise more of his executive power this way to create jobs and get our economy growing."

Ha! Apparently Begich didn't get the memo from Markey:)

daddy

The inventor of this should be shot.

G'nite.

Jim Ryan

I'm listening to clips of Zero's speech. Who the hell is this guy? Do you realize that the entire country, including the Congress of the United States of America, is meant to listen to a man who is best summarily categorized as some dude for advice, guidance, and leadership on how to fix a broken national economy? It is utterly preposterous. But that's not all. This same man has had his advice followed by us for the last two and a half years, resulting in the crippling of the economy. It is utterly outrageous. He should be utterly ignored. Yet he gets prime time. Does Al down at the bar also get a prime time slot? It's a deplorable situation.

peter

I found this amusing LUN. She did call LBJ, "Uncle Pork Chop" so it is not so surprising.

DebinNC

Victor Davis Hanson is as mystified as the rest of us over why Obama would give this type of speech.

"Why all that straw-man caricaturing ad nauseam, when after three years it is well beyond old and stale and, what’s more, Obama has a desperate need now for bipartisan support? Is Obama just politically dense, or he is so inured to the Chicago us/them confrontational mentality that he knows no politics other than polarization, even when appealing for help?"

DebinNC

Dana Milbank: The Irrelevancy of the Obama Presidency. Some interesting info on what was going on in the chamber as Obama talked, including that only 26 of the usually standing room only 90 press box seats were occupied at deadline.

Porchlight

I wonder if the WH thinks this was a good speech and is pleased with the way it went, or if they have some suspicion of the truth. The level of disconnect is literally unfathomable. I have no idea what they think anymore (if I ever did).

DebinNC

I wonder too. What sense did it make for Obama to repeatedly command, "Pass the bill..right now!" when there is no bill.

Porchlight

From Milbank - so delicious:

Almost all Republicans ignored the call of some within their ranks to boycott the speech. In fact, the empty seats were on the Democratic side. Democrats lumbered to their feet to give the president several standing ovations, but they struggled at times to demonstrate enthusiasm. When Obama proposed payroll tax cuts for small businesses, three Democrats stood to applaud. Summer jobs for disadvantaged youth brought six Democrats to their feet, and a tax credit for hiring the long-term unemployed produced 11 standees.

Dana is really disturbed and confused by the response to the President's earnest and well-crafted remarks. He scolds the Repubs for not applauding wildly when Lincoln was invoked and scolds the Dems for not being enthusiastic enough. Don't they know the Emperor is speaking?

Porchlight

and one more, I can't resist - thanks DebinNC for the link:

Obama spoke quickly, urgently, even angrily. Rep. Jesse Jackson (D-Ill.) stared at the ceiling. Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) scanned the gallery. Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) was seen reading a newspaper. And Republicans, when they weren’t giggling, were mostly silent.

snort

DebinNC

The Hill notes the mostly tepid response to O among Republicans and some Democrats, except for:

"Republicans also clapped loudly in an ironically-tinged response to Obama’s simplified characterization of their ideology. Reps. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) stood to applaud heartily after Obama said: “Some of you sincerely believe that the only solution to our economic challenges is to simply cut most government spending and eliminate government regulations.”

heehee

Porchlight

Hahahaha, that is awesome, DebinNC.

narciso

Well that is Cap n Trade Markey, otherwise known as one of the stupidest Congressman back in the day, he has been superceded by other MENSA candidates.

DebinNC

The Wall Street Journal has an excellent review of the speech, including how unobstructed Obama has been and how he knows nothing about how small business owners think and act.

DebinNC

David Brooks admits Obama's old solutions failed and last night's probably will too, but Obama deserves "a second date" because a double dip recession is possible and the man who failed to correct the first one is just the guy to fail to correct another.

Captain Hate

This was defeated (45 to 52) in the Senate last night.

"Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That Congress disapproves of the President's exercise of authority to increase the debt limit, as exercised pursuant to the certification under section 3101A(a) of title 31, United States Code."

Granted it was a symbolic thing but here are some interesting votes:

Rep Nays:
Brown (R-MA)
Corker (R-TN)

Dem Ayes:
Nelson (D-NE)

Not Voting
Rockefeller (D-WV)
Rubio (R-FL)
Webb (D-VA)

Maybe Pumpkin-head Webb can call this one of his "centrist votes" on the way out the door. Scottie Centerfold with another kick in the crotch to the Tea Partiers that supported him (although Coakley unilaterally declaring a plan to make voters present a valid ID illegal certainly confirms the idiocy of voting for her).

Wow narc; that should put octopi on the endangered species list. I'm incredulous that anybody uses Joe Esterhaz for anything these days other than an object of ridicule. Mel must've been really drunk/stoned/whatever when making that executive decision, although Joe probably lubed him up with some anti-Semitic porn.

Extraneus

It looks like the msm will have their hands full pimping Obama and his speech.

Judging by the links you guys posted, such as Dana Milbank and the AP fact check, it doesn't appear that the MSM is all that enthused with the assignment.

Porchlight

I wonder why Rubio didn't vote.

Captain Hate

Porch, he gets a pass from me because his mother has had a series of strokes and he was apparently with her. I forgot to point that out in the original post.

DebinNC

Yahoo news: Rubio's mother has fallen ill after recently suffering a series of debilitating strokes, and the senator's office said that as a result, his schedule was "fluid" this week.

He was probably out of town.

Dang that governmental interference !!!!!--

It's hard not to laugh at a statist who brings as his prime examples of private free enterprise failure the nation's road system which is almost completely and wholly owned and maintained by the state and electrical utilities and their attendant distribution grid which are nearly exclusively state sponsored and regulated monopolies.
The only thing missing was blaming the other most highly regulated and interfered with industry, healthcare, in as an example of laissez faire run amok amongst the suffering and neglected proletariat.

I only clicked over to the speech twice last night and couldn't stand more than a few seconds of it. But that vid from Janet at 9:19am is telling, funny and also disturbing.

7th time Obama's been minus 24 or lower.

11th straight day being minus 20 or lower and 30 out of the last 32.

His all time low of minus 26 - set August 23rd - is easily within reach. I believe he has done enough to earn a new unprecedented grim milestone by Monday and will be justly and thusly rewarded with same.

Clarice

To answer VDH, O did it because his posse is out of ideas and figured that having the silver tongues oratorical genius speak before an impressive looking joint session with Mooch surrounded by a cast of "worthies" might work. Pheh

You can believe what you want, obviously, but his entire life has been a con and this is just another chapter. I'd be much less skeptical if this was something he was doing under the radar instead of writing a book about it. But Joe's always been good at drawing attention to himself.

Mel, pretty soon Greece will be able to get a better deal on short term financing from certain "organizations" in places such as Chicago and Providence (weakened organizations to be sure, but still having financing divisions). In addition, these organizations will impose more financial discipline on Greece than the IMF and Germany have been able to impose.

From that WSJ editorial:

"He now acts as if he believes that taxes matter to investment and hiring, at least for the next year. And he now sees the wisdom of fiscal discipline, albeit starting only in 2013."

Do I detect a little understated disgust for the sheer cynicism of Obama's proposals and their timing being so perfectly calibrated to Nov. 2012?

Also:

"We've had the biggest Keynesian stimulus in decades. The new argument that the 2009 stimulus wasn't big enough isn't what we heard then. Americans were told it would create 3.5 million new jobs and unemployment would stay below 8% and be falling by 2011. It is now 9.1%. But this stimulus we are told will make all the difference."

Of course. Because "it's different this time."

Gmax

Morning everyone! Its a beautiful day in Columbus Georgia and I am finally back to the computer. Scanning the previous thread where I waved bye, I noted a debate on OCS washout rates.

Dont know overall, but the stats for Bravo Company were announced at the ceremony, 116 enrolled day one and only 82 walked across the stage. That is about a 30% washout rate in 12 weeks. Now some of those are recycled and get to go through it again ( from the very start ) and may well pass eventually.

Anyhow I got to pin the bar on 2nd Lt T. C. Maxwell yesterday.

And if a proud papa could possibly be any prouder, I wouldn't know how to display it. The XO of his platoon came to me and said he just wanted me to know how impressed he was with him. He said his first impression was of a guy that was quiet and shy, not sure he was going to make it he confided, but he said in the field he transformed into a steady and competent leader. The best in the platoon in his opinion. He did not have to say that and I was struck that a Captain would go out of his way to seek me out to tell me that.

It was humbling to see what talent we have defending us for sure. We are all very fortunate.

A future tank command in his future. But lots of training before that happens.

PD

Congrats, Gmax, thanks for the report.

Gmax

Oh BTW, even the West Point grads speaking at the ceremony went out of their way to make a point to the OCS grads that they never went through basic training with the enlisted and that because of that, the OCS grads would have special status with the enlisted. They were able to walk in the shoes of the enlisted man and they should expect and welcome that bond.

Melinda Romanoff

GMax-

We should all try this ..

But let's credit Obama with a great idea for stimulating the economy - I am going to buy a sports car and tell my wife it is already already paid for, with savings that she and I will identify later. That will work!

... but I doubt it will help much because EPA and DOT have pretty much pushed Detroit to give up sports cars, so it will have to be an import, most likely.
