President Obama, Friday, early afternoon, when asked if he was blaming Europe for the failure of his own economic policies: “The truth of the matter is, as I’ve said, we’ve created 4.3 million jobs the last 27 months…The private sector is doing fine.”
I can’t shake the feeling that it was a trap. A set-up. An ambush.
And that Obama bought it. And Joe Biden made it all possible.
There was no end to self-adulation of Barack Obama following the raid in which Osama Bin Laden was killed. In the revelry, the brainiac that is the Vice President opened his mouth and identified those who carried out the Bin Laden raid.
Attorney General Eric Holder: “[the courts are the nation's] most effective terror-fighting weapon.”
Van Jones (to Glenn Beck and FoxNews): “We see the effects of your cynicism and your disrespect and your hate-mongering and it’s not just immoral, it’s un-American to abuse the airwaves and to abuse the ears of our children with your lies and your filth and we’re tired of it….You’re not America.”
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: “There’s no need to have a Democratic budget in my opinion. It would be foolish for us to do a budget at this stage.”
Ed Schultz: “You see, being from the south, you know what these code words are all about. To say something about food stamps is not about white folks, it’s about black folks. There’s no question about it.”
Herb Kohl: “A 401(k) savings account should not be used as a piggy bank.”
President Barack Obama concerning border safety: “Even though we’ve answered these concerns [that Republicans have raised about border security], I’ve got to say i suspect there’s still some who are trying to move the goal posts on us one more time. You know, they said ‘we needed to triple the border patrol.’ Well, now they’re going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol, or they’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied.”
Christian Dorsey: “There is nothing that puts more money into the economy than unemployment benefits.”
