“What kind of politician brings a teleprompter to a news conference?

A careful one…

‘At the same time, the rest of us can’t afford to demonize every investor or entrepreneur who seeks to make a profit. That drive is what has always fueled our prosperity, and it is what will ultimately get these banks lending and our economy moving once more,’ he said.

It was a carefully modulated statement, and Obama — relying on a familiar crutch — read it off a flat-screen monitor perched at the back of the East Room.”

“This is Ron Burgundy. Go f*** yourself San Diego.”

I would laugh soooo hard if that happened to the TOTUS

Did he read only his opening statement off the big screen or did he use it throughout the press conference?

a report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office warned the US budget deficit for fiscal year 2009, ending September 30, would swell to 13.1 percent of Gross Domestic Product.

That’s twice over Cuba’s deficit, McConnell’s quote of the day.

Mitch McConnell, Republican Minority Leader, great party spokesman, great point made!

Well taken by the wise. Obama fool will denounce reality with his own stuck on stupid “no” alternative to his own blindside coercing us all into national bankruptcy via unconstitutional legislation.

Take it to the courts! Demand our Constitutional rights restoration that Socialist Democrats have trampled to destroy, ignoring voter constituent calls made to representatives and senators, some of whom were elected via voter fraud. No government has the right to coerce its nation into bankruptcy by over taxation and over spending and federal abuse of powers limited by the Constitution.

Take it to your legislators to prepare impeachment of Obama, Pelosi and Reid now. Get the records straight before they are destroyed, revised or removed from public access.

DEFINITELY take it to the polls and voting booth. Unleash our patriotic response to Obama’s persistent corruption of our Constitution and our Constitutional Government.

There’s that, but there’s also the fact that independents, who gave Obama (and earlier gave the Congressional Dems) his margin of victory and now looking at dividing the government again, like when Clinton was in office. Ace of Spades had a link to a poll the other day showing that independents were wary of Obama and Congress spending so much. A lot will depend on how districts are configured for 2010, i.e. are they gerrymandered enough to protect basically every incumbent, though. There’s also some movement on “states rights” by the states themselves, although I don’t know how far that will or can go.

The fundamental thing to remember is that no matter how much generic support there is for Dems’ positions on issues, that support only exists because Dems lie about how it’ll all be paid for (“tax the rich”).

I didn’t watch the presser since I knew I would get sick.

Today, I’m hearing it was boring, he didn’t really answer questions, he was long winded, didn’t smile, got testy at Major Garret’s question or Jake Tapper’s and he convinced no one that his budget was so wonderful.

Pretty much what I expected. :)

“What kind of politician brings a teleprompter to a news conference?

One who’s spontaneous comments are often risible. There are at least 57 reasons why – for President Obamateur – reading is a a much better plan than thinking.

If you believe him, it took him two days to figure out that he should be outraged by the AIG bonuses.

Kick Obama in the ass for abusing the role of National Cybersecurity Chief removed from Congressional oversight converting the Department of Homeland Security into Obama’s Socialist Dictatorship feeding the NSA spy dominion over our civilian population, bloating Obama’s White House Chief Executive powers beyond Constitutional limits.

Rod Beckstrom, the DHS national cybersecurity chief resigned March 16th in protest of Obama’s tyranny of intrusive observation disregarding citizens’ rights. Those who booted him out attempted to taint his character, but in fact ennobled him for asserting Constitutional limits to the Department of Homeland Security and his job specifically, rather than asserting Washingtonian gluttony in order to avoid “personality conflicts” and just get along by going along with Obama.

Beckstrom wouldn’t conform to conducting the erosion of our Constitutional liberties. In his own way, he parallels Sir Thomas More who refused to endorse corruption of authority merely to court the King’s fleeting favor.

This week Obama proposed granting his Cybersecurity Chief authority to shut down any network (or website) that conflicts with the President’s message. No critical journalism tolerated.

Best to recognize the nature of the beast before you attempt to pet it.

Come to the tea parties prepared with information as party favors.

Per legislation, we need a sponsor and lobby to motivate awareness and response. Write your Congressmen and Senators to prepare the groundwork for impending impeachment of Socialists aborting Constitutional Government frameworks and protocols.

Per Court Case, we need a sponsor that the Court will recognize to champion the Constitution and challenge Obama’s over reach of Presidential authority as stated within the Constitution that he is obliged to protect and defend, but instead is destroying.

We need to renounce the bail-out legislation as unconstitutional, and turn on our legislators to rescind their gross error in judgment, passing unconstitutional laws without even reading them, and the President signing unconstitutional laws that he demanded immediate passage only to claim he had no idea what he asked for.

Impeach rather than permit national destruction!

We ALL voted for TAX CUTS!

No one voted for national bankruptcy.

Under Clinton’s IRS tax brackets, a family of four earning $24K paid $8K taxes.

When the tax man empties your bank account and your kitchen pantry, there isn’t support for Democrat hollow promises. The over reach of Socialists cause the public outcry and conservative response.

As if Socialists haven’t figured how to combat our legitimate Constitutional response. Cyber spy and target all conflicts that refuse to conform to Borg Obama’s assimilation.

Better to organize resistance sooner than later.

Impeach infers Soetoro-Obama is legitimate. I prefer oust; as in, oust the usurper.
