Epic fail for the epic liar attempting to lie Obama back into office.

Bubba is the 2nd best gift behind Joe Biden.

With Obama’s spending, all races will go to the back of the line. Love how these liberal idiots play the race card with everything.

From Beltway Confidential:

Congress must raise taxes on the wealthy “because there just isn’t enough to go around,” Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute today.

Shaun Donovan = ACORN goon. When will Donovan speak to the Congressional Caucasian Caucus? Oops, there isn’t one.

“Latino growth has meant that often they’re at the back of the line for housing assistance or other things,” Donovan said during CHCI’s annual Public Policy Conference this morning at the Ronald Reagan Building in D.C. “And the fundamental problem here (in part) is, are we going to continue to invest in those things? And if we continue to cut the budget for Section 8 housing and public housing and a whole range of other things — if we don’t fix this fiscal cliff in a fair way that actually asks higher-income Americans to pay their fair share — Latinos are going to have to continue to wait in the back of the line, because there just isn’t enough to go around. And that’s a fundamental problem in our housing system, but it’s a much bigger problem that is a huge issue when we make a decision about what our investments are going to be in Congress.”

Just don’t ask the 49% who pay ZERO in federal taxes to pay their “fair share.” Imagine how many Hispanics could have been helped with those billions Obama gave to his bundlers in his green energy scheme.

Donovan’s remarks should play well among the Latino community if the polling data provided before he spoke holds true about how Latinos believe the deficit and economic crises should be addressed.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Christian-oriented Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday challenging a mandate in the nation’s health care overhaul law that requires employers to provide coverage for the morning-after pill and similar drugs.

The lawsuit by the Oklahoma City-based chain claims the government mandate is forcing the company’s owners “to violate their deeply held religious beliefs under threat of heavy fines, penalties and lawsuits.” Failure to provide the drugs in the company’s health insurance plan could lead to fines of up to $1.3 million a day, the company said.

“By being required to make a choice between sacrificing our faith or paying millions of dollars in fines, we essentially must choose which poison pill to swallow,” David Green, Hobby Lobby CEO and founder, said in a statement. “We simply cannot abandon our religious beliefs to comply with this mandate.”

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City, alleges the Health and Human Services mandate is unconstitutional and requests an injunction to prohibit it from being enforced. Hobby Lobby is self-insured and will be required to comply with the mandate by Jan. 1, the start of its health insurance plan year.

“We are confident that the court will act quickly,” said Kyle Duncan, general counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty in Washington, which represents Hobby Lobby. Duncan said 27 other lawsuits have been filed nationwide over the mandate, mostly by nonprofit groups.

“This mandate violates the religious liberty of millions of Americans,” Duncan said. “The government has turned a deaf ear to the rights of business owners.”

Romney should demand for the release of Biden’s psychology records. Biden is brain-dead and suffers from Alzheimer’s.

Of course there is liberal media bias and their bias continues to be exposed.

From PJTatler:

If you still harbor any doubt that mainstream media journalists are in the tank for Obama, wonder no more. Anopen mic caught several of them coordinating strategy and gaming out how to pester Mitt Romney about his statement Tuesday, in which he called the Obama administration’s response to the attacks in Egypt and Libya “disgraceful.”

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: …pointing out that the Republicans… *unintelligible* …Obama….

CBS REPORTER: That’s the question.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: *unintelligible*

CBS REPORTER: Yeah that’s the question. I would just say do you regret your question.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Your question? Your statement?

CBS REPORTER: I mean your statement. Not even the tone, because then he can go off on…

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: And then if he does, if we can just follow up and say ‘but this morning your answer is continuing to sound…’ – *becomes unintelligble*

CBS REPORTER: You can’t say that..

**Later**

CBS REPORTER: I’m just trying to make sure that we’re just talking about, no matter who he calls on we’re covered on the one question.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Do you stand by your statement or regret your statement?

Two rounds of quantitative easing did nothing for the economy or job creation, yet Fed Reserve idiots think a third round will do the trick.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — The Federal Reserve’s policymaking committee is meeting for the next two days, and it is widely expected to announce a third round of quantitative easing, known as QE3.

But even if the Fed launches that third bond-buying spree, it is unlikely to have a major positive effect on the economy.

Bernanke promised not to monetize the debt, yet this will be the third round of devaluing the dollar.

The impact would be “microscopic” at best, said Catherine Mann, a Brandeis University finance professor and former Federal Reserve economist.

“The Fed continues to want the economy to grow faster and specifically, to grow more jobs, but the ability of QE to do that is extraordinarily limited,” she said.

The Fed could buy Treasury bonds, mortgage backed securities, or both. Economists at Goldman Sachs predict QE3 could total $50 billion in purchases a month, and the end date could be left up in the air, depending on the strength of the economy.

The hope is that such a program will lower interest rates further, translating into cheap borrowing for businesses, consumers and homebuyers. In turn, more lending could lead to more hiring.

Here’s the problem though: The more easing that the Fed does, the less impact it has on the broader economy. Even the Fed admits as much.

“There may be some diminishing returns and that would be a consideration we’d have to look at as we try to analyze what our options are,” Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said in June.

I’m sure Obama and Holder will be ready to prosecute Sebelius for breaking the law. Under the Hatch Act, violators are to be removed. Think that will happen?

From Politico:

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated the Hatch Act, which prohibits certain political activity, when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity earlier this year, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel said Wednesday.

The office sent an official report and Sebelius’s response to the president on Wednesday.

The special counsel’s office said it “found no evidence that Secretary Sebelius made any other political statements in her official capacity.”

During a speech to the Human Rights Campaign Gala in North Carolina in February, Sebelius said North Carolina Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton “needs to be the next governor of North Carolina.” She also outlined the Obama administration’s accomplishments so far and said: “One of the imperatives is to make sure that we not only come together here in Charlotte to present the nomination to the president, but we make sure that in November he continues to be president for another four years.”

The Office of Special Counsel said she made the political remarks in her capacity as a federal employee and thus violated the Hatch Act. If  Sebelius had made those remarks in her personal capacity, they would have been acceptable.

Then Sebelius attempt to lie and relabel her event…

After that appearance, Sebelius had the event reclassified from official to political, and done in her personal capacity, in an attempt to avoid a Hatch Act violation. She and HHS also reimbursed the Treasury Department for all the costs associated with the trip. At least some of the cost  was picked by the Democratic National Committee, according to the OSC.

But the OSC said the reclassification doesn’t mean the violation didn’t occur, particularly because the gala was advertised using Sebelius’s HHS title.

Got to hide the truth about Obama’s pay-to-play scheme that caused a half a billion dollar loss to the taxpayers.

From PJMedia:

Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, issued a statement Wednesday afternoon regarding the testimony of Morgan Wright. Wright is the Obama administration’s Director of Strategic Initiatives in the Department of Energy. According to Issa’s statement, Wright has refused to appear for a subpoena in the investigation into Solyndra, the failed “green” tech company that lost more than half a billion taxpayer dollars in the form of a government-backed loan approved by the Obama administration.

“The decision of this key figure in the Solyndra scandal to ignore his legal obligation to appear for a deposition is unprecedented and regrettable.  This reflects poorly on not only Mr. Wright’s character, but also on Secretary of Energy Chu and other employees who worked on matters related to the loan program,’ said Chairman Issa.

“This refusal to appear as ordered by a lawful subpoena only adds to the perception of wrongdoing and attempts to hide what really happened in the loan program office.  Taxpayers will likely lose billions on the Obama Administration’s ill-conceived loan guarantee program and the appearance of cronyism only enhances the need for answers.

“Mr. Wright was given notice more than two weeks ago that he would be depositioned under rules written years ago by committee Democrats that explicitly bar agency counsel from representing him.  His excuses for not appearing were last minute and not fully credible.  I had already agreed with Ranking Member Cummings that we would discuss Mr. Wright’s concerns about representation when he arrived and before deciding whether the deposition would proceed today.  Wright’s failure to appear was an act of bad faith.

“I am reissuing a subpoena for Wright’s deposition.  This does not, however, absolve Mr. Wright from the consequences he, his current or future employers, or his associates at the Department of Energy may face as a result of his failure to meet his obligations today.”

This is a fluff piece to cover Obama’s ass for not attending half of his intelligence briefings. Next Politico will say that Team Obama simply left out Obama attending those intelligence briefings. Got to protect their investment.

From Politico:

The White House has touted the easy availability of President Barack Obama’s public schedule as part of his administration’s “commitment to open government.”

But there’s a lot the White House keeps off its regular rundown of the president’s day.

Obama has pledged to run the most transparent administration in history, yet the published schedule offers only a narrow window into his activities, a POLITICO review found.

There are tough-to-fathom omissions like leaving off a reception for AIDS activists and researchers that had already been announced on a White House blog. And seemingly deliberate ones, such as the absence of several meetings with House Speaker John Boehner at the height of debt ceiling negotiations. Others seem designed to downplay inconvenient or politically awkward events, such as meetings about the Sudan with actor George Clooney, a major contributor and fundraiser for the president.

Maybe top military officials should call on those who are killing in the name of a backwards religion instead of trying to stifle an American citizens’ rights to free speech. Stop the fucking Muslim appeasement!

(Reuters) – General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke with Pastor Terry Jones by phone on Wednesday and asked him to withdraw his support for a film whose portrayal of the Prophet Mohammad has sparked violent protests – including one that ended with the death of America’s envoy to Libya. “In the brief call, Gen. Dempsey expressed his concerns over the nature of the film, the tensions it will inflame and the violence it will cause,” Dempsey’s spokesman, Colonel Dave Lapan, told Reuters. “He asked Mr. Jones to consider withdrawing his support for the film.” U.S. military officials are concerned that the film could inflame tensions in Afghanistan, where 74,000 U.S. troops are fighting. The Taliban earlier on Wednesday called on Afghans to prepare for a fight against Americans and urged insurgents to “take revenge” on U.S. soldiers over the film.
