Who's going to pay my mortgage and buy gas for my car?

It was just a matter of time, but the Democrats are already bailing out on their campaign promises after only one day:
During their campaigns for the White House and Congress, Democrats played up their ambitious plans to cool a warming planet, revive the economy and fix a broken health care system.

But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in her first news conference since the party's big election victory, warned Wednesday that Democrats might have to scale back the size of their proposals as tax revenues slow and federal budget deficits soar because of a sluggish economy.

"I think it's important for the American people to know that many of our options have been diminished because of the downturn in the economy," Pelosi said. "We have a lot less money to draw upon."
Things must have really gotten bad overnight, eh Nancy? Still, I guess this has to be counted as an upside to the Democrat party's destruction of the mortgage market and the resulting economic tremors.

Hmm, I wonder - are banks still giving mortgages to illegal aliens and food stamp recipients?  I wouldn't want them to be accused of discrimination by the Democrats.

The MSM doesn't even pretend anymore

Obama bitch Chris Matthews
Sheesh, the mainstream media used to pretend to nonpartisan truth seeking. Now they don't even bother. Tom Shales in the WaPo:
Network anchors and reporters vied for airtime in which to express their own elation at Obama's win, and a sometimes inappropriate personal sense of victory; were reporters who said they were thrilled by Obama's winning sort of confirming charges of pro-Obama bias that had been leveled by McCain forces during the campaign?
Ya think? Ole Tom is the style columist and perhaps a little slow on spotting horse crap.

"Morning Joe" show on MSNBC had Joe Scarborough talking to Chris Mathews about "amateur hour"-the Rahm Emmanual decision to "think about" taking the chief of staff position offered by Obama. Joe felt this should have been worked out long ago and is not something to be offered and then "thought about" out in public. Chris Mathews was upset at the criticism saying “Our Job (Journalists)Is To Make This Presidency Work”.

Joe immediately went after Mathews but Mathews held his ground talking about how in the world we live in right now it is of the utmost importance that this government succeed. Even Mika and a reporter from Time magazine jumped on Mathews for the comment, talking about how the media's job was in Cronkite's words to be "skeptical so the public would not be cynical."

Mathews still would not back down so Joe ended the segment by sarcastically saying it was "so nice" that the media didn't question the government in dangerous times like during the Iraq war, not questioning Rumsfelds actions and not second guessing Bush's motives.
Actually, the amazing thing is that all the reporters haven't gotten the memo yet.

Hide your money and guns, the commies are coming

Among other things they crave, Barack and his playmates will certainly want your money and your guns. It's all for your own good, don't you know? If you don't feel like you need help from Big Brother, it is past time to start making preparations and in that regard, John Dvorak has some tips on how to Obama-proof your portfolio, based on his conversation with an anonymous wealthy investor. Read it for some specific tips, but here are the general themes:
"The main theme is not to invest in America," he says. "That means non-USA oil and gas companies. The antidrilling prejudice and windfall-profits enthusiasm will drive the United States to actually import more oil...
"Avoid financials like Charles Schwab, since Obama believes in rewarding 'work not wealth,' so people who work at investment houses and their private clients will be taxed more to demotivate investment. The government should invest and individuals should not invest. That is a constant theme from the Obama camp.

"Non-U.S. health care: New, free medical-care program will kill drug prices and kill discovery budgets as science shifts from disease (no money) back to recreation. (You will pay for Viagra.) Thus non-U.S. drug companies will benefit from the United States getting rid of the drug-discovery business.
Swell. But heck there are some bright spots:
"Also watch out for bubble in U.S. solar and wind start-ups, since government subsidies will accelerate and swindles of all kinds will thus multiply.
"One U.S. bright spot: housing rebound. Combination of no-growth politics and mortgage forgiveness will reduce supply and increase demand, ending the housing problem. Also non-U.S. wealth will buy up prime real estate in big cities. But those long commutes from Stockton to San Francisco? That's dead. Get used to eating root vegetables in winter, since only Japanese tourists can afford Latin American peaches in winter."
I can hardly wait! Whether you buy this advice or not, you have to be uncomfortably aware that the crazies who like forcing banks to give mortgages to illegal aliens and food stamp recipients are now in charge of the asylum and as evidenced by their ruminations about confiscating 401(k) personal retirement funds, they will not be deterred by any inhibitions about taking what is yours. Stay tuned for restrictions on taking money out of the country like Venezuela and other third world thugocracies.

Gosh, I missed the big party with Oprah!

Oprah and Obama
And since it is Oprah, it has to be a big party:
She was in Grant Park on Tuesday night with Stedman Graham; pal Gayle King was set to fly in and join the party.

"We want to be there that moment when Barack comes out ... and he is the new president of the United States," Winfrey said.
Her grasp of Constitutional mechanics is as thin as her grasp of most other things that are non-food related. By the way, Oprah says that now she will be "unleashed" to discuss political issues at length on her show. Sheesh, a fat flack for the boy Communist.

Today's Hoot: Castro Endorses Fresh Prince of Bill-Ayers


Hey, they recognize a fellow traveler.

Obama Civilian National Security Force spotted in Philadelphia

Heard about Barack Obama's "Civilian National Security Force"?

In Zimbabwe they call them the Green Bombers. In Haiti they called them the Tonton Macoute. No word on what Barry wants to name his thugs, but he already has the Black Panthers lined up. Hey, that would be a catchy name! Or how about the Weathermen?

I lack the part where the other thug could stay because he was a "poll watcher." Guess we know what Hussein wants the Civilian National Security Force to do.


Obama thug in Philadelphia

and a better video of this knuckle dragging Obama stormtrooper:

Dumber than a sack of hammers

This loon believes Obama is going to put gas in her car and pay for her mortgage.

And you know she doesn't think the money is coming out of his own pocket - it's going to come out of yours. Hmmm, maybe I'm uncharitable - maybe she thinks it's going to come from God:

When the going gets tough, Obama gives his opponents the finger

Obama gives McCain the finger
Things must be tough for ole Hussein what with the belated revelations of his wetback Aunt Zeituni and his plan to destroy the American coal industry. So he reacts like he did when Hillary was neck and neck with him for the Donk nomination. He gives John McCain the finger to the enjoyment of his knuckle dragging supporters:

Doesn't Barack Obama remind you of the smarmy little prat that regularly got forcibly separated from his pants when he was a school kid? You will notice that he didn't call Sarah Palin a pig again - I guess the contrast between Sarah and his harridan wife was just too much for his little passive aggressive brain.

Obama's Favorite Aunt Zeituni to Become Campaign Poster Girl

Today, the Obama campaign announced that for the closing 24 hours of the presidential campaign, Barack Obama's favorite aunt Zeituni will become the poster girl of the campaign since she embodies all the aspects of Obama's plan for America - most particularly spreading the wealth of selfish people to those less fortunate. Below is Zeituni's statement released by the Obama campaign.

America been berry, berry good to me!

Thass right. I come to America on tourist visa but with high hopes for work and experience in brewery as well as great dancer. No one could give job since I only tourist and selfish people say that illegal. (Actually, dancing bars say I too old.) Not to worry, the People's Republic of Massachusetts beg me to take free housing, free food, free medical care, and free money for doing nothing!

Have I died and gone to heaven? Kenya was nothing like this. I even get extra money for being "health care advocate." No - nothing icky. I just help other people sign up for more free benefits. Is that great or what?

Only bad thing is that four years ago judge say I have to leave country because illegal. I worry, but friends say he just selfish, ignore him - so I do. No one bother me since! I even got to attend ceremony for Barack being sworn in as Senator in 2005. Anyone know why he cross fingers?

Now Barack's friends have me in fancy hotel until campaign over. They say, "Don't worry Aunty. No one will bother you." That OK, I just eat room service lobster and watch election news on all the Barack TV channels.

My advice - ignore selfish people Barack channels tell about. Vote for Barack and you may be able to live as well as I do! Even if you aren't related!

Obama promises to bankrupt the coal industry

Good ole Hopey-Changey had the poor luck to have some of his actual words recorded and golly, the room temperature IQ lad wants to to bankrupt the US coal industry:

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted.
He's not complaining that coal is "dirty," a problem that has been taken care of by modern technology on US coal plants (if not overseas). He's complaining about the fact that coal power plants use combustion to generate power and thereby release carbon dioxide. Don't anyone tell him how oil and natural gas power plants work. Oh wait, someone told him:

Beakes noted other examples of Obama and Biden making seemingly anti-coal statements, such as in February when Obama said he'd like to tax "dirty energy" such as coal and natural gas.
Since Obama is at best ambivalent about nuclear power, what else is left? I guess he thinks living in caves wouldn't be so bad. Of course, every other country in the world (particularly China)  will be laughing their heads off at our stupidity.

Update: Hussein doesn't just have it in for people in the coal industry - he hates the little people who use electricity too:
Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.
Glad to see he is looking out for us.

Let me get this straight. A bankrupt coal plant will generate "billions of dollars" for solar and wind power?

That's math only a community organizer can understand.
