Talking points Wow, is anyone still awake after tonight’s Obamacare prime time news conference?

What the hell was that, huh?

I will speak more about the conference in Thursday’s Stitch n’ Bitch because boy do I have a lot to bitch about now that I have witnessed the absolute most awful news conference on earth.

At the moment I am somewhere between hysterical laughter and shock.

Someone pinch me, did this guy actually get elected? Has it only been six months? It feels like six years.

I need to unwind.

How does Afrocity unwind?

By watching Fox News and eating ice cream. However tonight after a lovely interview between Sean Hannity and RNC Chairman, Michael Steele, I cannot not stomach one moment of liberal sycophant Bob “please tuck your shirt tail in” Beckel.  This guy has drank the Kool Aid and now sucking air out of the cup.  He thinks that Obama is the greatest president since FDR. No matter what Obama does or says that is clearly misguided, Bob will be right there to defend him. I never thought I would say this but he is worse than  former Hannity partner, Alan Colmes. That is pretty damn bad.

Today is a day that I assume we all want to forget. I will leave you tonight with a clip of my fav conservative funny man,  ZONATION.

Live From Washington D.C. It’s Obamacare!!!

democrats6President Barack Obama will get another chance to pitch his free health care for all in a prime time news conference tonight.  I am not sure if I will watch or not.

I already  know what my position is on it and he is not going to change it.  As Obama faces looming hostilities which stem from  his inept handling of health care reform from both Republicans and blue dog Democrats, Obama has to go on TV when he is feeling “periodically down” and the Kool Aid boxer gloves come out.

While the Republicans were chanting that health care reform would be Obama’s  “Waterloo”, our president became a bit defensive during a speech this week.  “It’s not about me,” he whines.  But oh Barry it is always about you.  You are the one who ran on hopenchange with an air of persistent superiority. The voters went for you like an American Girl doll. They saw something about YOU and it is about you.  Don’t castrate yourself now by being humble, merely to garner sympathy.

Healthcare reform tops agenda for Obama’s prime-time news conference

The president will keep up the pressure for swift action from Congress despite complaints that he is moving too fast.
By Mark Silva and Christi Parsons
11:39 AM PDT, July 22, 2009

Reporting from Washington — President Obama, attempting to “keep the pressure on” Congress for swift action on healthcare reform this summer, will take his case to the public tonight with a prime-time televised news conference at the White House.

Yet, even as the president presses his case, the summer calendar could be working against the deadline that the president has set for the Democratic-run Congress. With House leaders hoping to take a plan to a vote by the end of July, the best that Senate leaders may achieve is a conceptual bipartisan agreement on their own measure before leaving for the August recess…

The president’s pitch at 5 p.m. PDT, to be carried live by broadcast and cable news networks, will serve as a crescendo of direct personal appeals to the public, with Obama also sitting for interviews this week with the major networks.

“I want to keep the pressure on, because we’re making steady progress,” Obama told Katie Couric in an interview on the ” CBS Evening News.”

A Gallup Poll released today shows that one in six Americans — 16% — say they have no health insurance. This matches official estimates of some 47 million uninsured Americans.

It’s imperative that Congress be given a deadline for action on health legislation, the president said in another interview with NBC News this week, because it will not act without one. The default position in Washington is inertia, the president suggested.
Yet, with conservative members of the president’s own party questioning the costs and taxes involved in various proposals and Republican leaders intent on blocking any bill that raises taxes and increases the government’s hand in control of healthcare, even some of Obama’s allies are voicing concern over the pace of the debate.

“No one wants to tell the speaker [ Nancy Pelosi] that she’s moving too fast and they damn sure don’t want to tell the president,” Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), a key committee chairman, told a fellow lawmaker as they headed into a closed-door meeting on Tuesday, a remark overheard by reporters.

Food for Thought While You Watch The News Conference. Swallow with Kool Aid.

In Obama’s interview with Couric, the CBS newswoman said “surely you don’t want to ram something through,” and reminded him that it took President Johnson a year and a half to get Medicare enacted.

Obama replied: “We’ve been talking about this for four years. We’ve been studying this ad infinitum.”

“Starting in November, after my election, a lot of members of Congress — including the chairman of the [Senate] Finance Committee, Max Baucus — started meeting and working through ideas,” said Obama, referring to the Democrat from Montana. “So we’ve actually been working on this for a good solid nine months now.”

Obama expressed confidence that a bill can be approved, adding that “I want the American people to understand I have no interest in creating a bad bill. That doesn’t serve me. And it certainly doesn’t serve the American people.”

The president has underscored the urgency of acting soon in a series of appearances last week and this week.

Speaking to reporters in the White House Rose Garden lefty_kool-aid_awardon Tuesday, Obama said: “I understand that some will try to delay action until the special interests can kill it, while others will simply focus on scoring political points. We’ve done that before. And we can choose to follow that playbook again, and then we’ll never get over the goal line. . . . Or we can come together and insist that this time it will be different. We can choose action over inaction.”

The remarks were part of a White House blitz to promote the president’s healthcare agenda this week, a strategy that also includes television interviews and a Thursday town hall in Cleveland.

A poll released Tuesday provided a sense of the battle Obama is facing. By 50% to 44%, Americans disapprove of how the president is handling healthcare policy, the USA Today/Gallup poll found.

It seems that I am not the only one who is tired of Obama and his prime time new conferences. My favorite CNN reporter Lou Dobbs tell Obama to SHUT UP.

They Shoot Jackasses, Don’t They?

Donkey CliffI told them that electing Barack Obama as president was not without consequences.  For most of this year, we have seen the mainstream media dancing on the freshly dug grave of the Republican Party. Imagine Chris Matthews and Nancy Pelosi happily shoveling dirt.  “Let’s make it 12 feet deep, rather than 6 – just to be certain that the elephant bastards don’t rise from the dead.”  Some Democrats were nice enough to send phony sympathy cards.

Dear GOP,

Sorry for your loss. We are really concerned about the direction you are taking. Are you OK? Do you need anything? How unfortunate that you missed that bipartisan congressional talk on unified health care.  We  invited you (cough) really we did.  Thought we heard a faint knock on the door. Was that you?

Your Pal,  the DNC

The media attempt to show concern over the Republican Party served as cover for their efforts to destroy it. The success of Barack Obama and the Democrats were pursued through rose coloring events and what I call “collective media-nesia”. Stories such as the Air Force One photo op fiasco in New York City, Obama’s sketchy firing of Inspector General Gerald Walpin, and Nancy Pelosi’s obvious lies about the CIA and torture briefings somehow got lost in the shuffle of important news about Obama’s first Easter egg roll, and Michelle Obama’s wonderful attire. Obama’s popularity soared and there was no end in sight to liberal rule.

suicideMany of these sign-offs on the Republican Party were unfortunately met with infighting. Elephant against RINO. Arlen Spector (D-PA) made an ass of himself literally. Olympia Snow (R-Maine) froze her fellow, more conservative Republicans out. Rush Limbaugh was crowned the “leader of the Republican Party, who wanted Obama to fail”.  Bobby Jindal went down in flames during a GOP response to an Obama address.  Sex scandals in Nevada, Gov. Mark Sanford’s (R-SC) adulterous involvement with an Argentine spicy tomato, Sarah Palin’s resignation. What more could happen to the Grand Old Party?

Well not much.  There is a point where the only place to go is up.  If there is one thing I learned when I was a liberal, it was never underestimate the GOP. You kick them down, they come back stronger than ever.  Liberal success is usually based on superficial victories, nothing that stands the test of time. So you elected the first African American President of the United States.

Big Whoop.

So you passed the stimulus bill.

Want a cookie?

assThese are the victories that would send Nancy Pelosi and her company of jackasses into a state of liberal euphoria.  But remember Stephen King’s novel The Shining? While the ghouls of the Overlook Hotel were dancing there was something they had forgot and the hotel blows up.

A Kodak moment rarely shows what is going on in reality.  This is one reason why I endured the many months of liberal gloating with reserve.  Any liberal victory is often short-lived because they have a way of fucking up like no one else.  Like Kennedy, Johnson,  Carter and Clinton, they usually leave office in death or shame.  They are like the alcoholic that gets it together with a three month sober chip and a relieved spouse, only to lose the job because they were caught smoking weed in boys room.

So I was never worried about the Republican Party.

Obama’s poll numbers are down. He is not a centrist and slap my black bottom, I even overheard several African Americans discussing his failure to help blacks.  It was difficult for me to resist the temptation of asking them, when did Barack Obama ever help anyone besides himself? Was he a centrist as a senator?  No.  The Democrats habits will always be associated with spending in excess, class warfare, cutting valuable defense programs  and taxing the balls off every man.  That blue state blood runs in their veins.  Obama and the liberals can buy 2,000,ooo yoga mats with stimulus money and they will never channel their inner centrist.

The only Democrat who came close was William Jefferson Clinton and that was after he was diluted by a Republican Congress and enlisted the help of Dick Morris.  Now Dick Morris is showing how that grave the Democrats were digging for the Republicans, may actually be useful for their own corpse. Death by suicide.

Are the Dems Suicidal?
by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann

If the Democrats obey Obama’s commands and pass health-care reform legislation by the August recess, they will be committing partisan suicide, akin to lemmings going over the cliff en mass. Obama’s insistence that we completely make over our health-care system — and that we do it two weeks after the first bill was marked up in the first committee — is too arrogant by half. It smacks of the same kind of overreaching as doomed FDR’s second term in 1937 after his landslide victory in 1936, when he proposed to pack the Supreme Court to reverse their anti-New Deal rulings…

The more word gets around about what the bill contemplates, the firmer opposition is going to become. That’s why Obama wants to push it through now, while he still has some popularity left.

…There are some votes that live on and on. They don’t go away. People remember. From the time Bush Sr. passed the Kuwait resolution for military action against Saddam Hussein until Bush Jr.’s Iraq War began to go south in 2004, the gold standard for an appropriate attitude on national defense and security policy was how one voted on the Kuwait war resolution.

Can’t say we didn’t warn him.
