Got to keep the propaganda going. It’s worked on the low-information voters for 4 years.

From WaPo:

The former Obama campaign will become a non-profit that will advocate for the president’s policies, the first such transition for a major political organization, First Lady Michelle Obama announced Friday.

Obama for America campaign manager Jim Messina will become chairman of the new group, called Organizing for Action, and White House aide Jon Carson will join as executive director. The group will disclose its donors.

The new group will accept donations form individuals and corporations but not from lobbyists or PACs, the AP reported.

When it comes to money, you know Obama will flip-flop and take money from lobbyist and PACs..just like he did during the last campaign.

“Now in terms of the specifics of what this organization will look like, a lot of that will be up to you,” the first lady said. “It will be determined by your energy and ideas and feedback — because after all, this is your movement.”

Don’t drop the soap or your chocolate highway will be sore

What else do you expect from a Democrat who ducked any blame for the mess his administration created during Katrina?

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — More than a decade ago, Ray Nagin was elected mayor of New Orleans on a vow to root out corruption in a city plagued by decades of it. On Friday, the former mayor was indicted on charges he lined his pockets with bribe money, payoffs and gratuities while the chronically poor city struggled to recover from Hurricane Katrina’s punishing blow.

The federal indictment alleges that city contractors paid Nagin more than $200,000 in bribes and subsidized his trips to Hawaii, Jamaica and other places in exchange for his help securing millions of dollars in work for the city.

Obama has done this many time yet no federal charges against him (see Obama green energy donors getting taxpayer-backed loans)

The charges against Nagin are the product of a City Hall corruption investigation that already has resulted in guilty pleas by two former city officials and two businessmen and a prison sentence for a former city vendor.

The case also punctuates the reversal of political and personal fortune for Nagin, who had what New Orleans Magazine editor Errol Laborde called “rock star status” soon after his election in 2002.

Nagin, a former cable television executive, took office with an image as a largely apolitical businessman ready to root out corruption. “The media bought into that 100 percent. They used the term ‘crackdown on corruption,’” Laborde said Friday.

But Nagin’s popularity and support waned in the years after Katrina. The federal investigation of his administration was mushrooming by the time he left office in 2010.

Goody. So when can we expect arrest warrants for him and Obama for their participation in gun trafficking weapons in Operation Fast & Furious?

Danny Glover is your typical liberal idiot using revisionist history to rewrite history. Glover claims the 2nd Amendment was created to protect whites from slave and Indian revolt and to ensure slavery. The reason for the 2nd amendment is to protect Americans from a tyrannical government and from moonbat crazy liberals.

Obama has other priorities like producing trillion dollar deficits, adding to the national debt, putting more into the unemployment lines, adding millions more to the food stamp rolls and signing executive orders to infringe on 2nd amendment rights. He’s too busy to worry about jobs. Remember this is the guy who promised not to rest until every American who wanted a job had one.

From Politico:

President Barack Obama’s Jobs Council hit a notable milestone on Thursday: one year without an official meeting. The 26-member panel is also set to expire at the end of the month, unless Obama extends its tenure.

The group, formally known as the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, last convened on Jan. 17, 2012 for a White House session where it presented formal recommendations to Obama. It was the panel’s fourth official meeting since it was created in early 2011.

A spokesman for Jobs Council chairman Jeffrey Immelt, who’s the CEO of General Electric, referred questions about the panel’s future to the White House.

A White House spokeswoman had no comment Thursday.

Wanna bet Democrats all of a sudden will be all over passing a budget after 3 years of not doing so?

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor released the following statement about the need to pass a budget that reduces spending:

“The President’s plan to simply borrow more money without any reform in Washington puts us all at risk.

“The first step to fixing this problem is to pass a budget that reduces spending. The House has done so, and will again. The Democratic Senate has not passed a budget in almost four years, which is unfair to hardworking taxpayers who expect more from their representatives. That ends this year.

“We must pay our bills and responsibly budget for our future. Next week, we will authorize a three month temporary debt limit increase to give the Senate and House time to pass a budget. Furthermore, if the Senate or House fails to pass a budget in that time, Members of Congress will not be paid by the American people for failing to do their job. No budget, no pay.

Krugman_New-articleInline-v2

Paul Krugman is an Obama-type guy. He doesn’t mind lying to trick the weak-minded into believing there is no deficit, debt or spending problems.

From the NYTimes:

It’s hard to turn on your TV or read an editorial page these days without encountering someone declaring, with an air of great seriousness, that excessive spending and the resulting budget deficit is our biggest problem. Such declarations are rarely accompanied by any argument about why we should believe this; it’s supposed to be part of what everyone knows.

Take than Hillary Clinton and Timothy Geithner. Krugman says deficits are not a national security threat and Obama’s spending is not unsustainable. We’ve had no budget since April of 2009.

This is, however, a case in which what everyone knows just ain’t so. The budget deficit isn’t our biggest problem, by a long shot. Furthermore, it’s a problem that is already, to a large degree, solved. The medium-term budget outlook isn’t great, but it’s not terrible either — and the long-term outlook gets much more attention than it should.

Try to follow this moron’s logic. Budget deficits add to the national debt but it’s not a problem because it’s already solved. We are heading towards our 5th straight year of producing a $1 trillion plus deficit. Don’t worry, the problem is solved according to Krugman.

It’s true that right now we have a large federal budget deficit. But that deficit is mainly the result of a depressed economy — and you’re actually supposed to run deficits in a depressed economy to help support overall demand. The deficit will come down as the economy recovers: Revenue will rise while some categories of spending, such as unemployment benefits, will fall. Indeed, that’s already happening. (And similar things are happening at the state and local levels — for example, California appears to be back in budget surplus.)

Spending more than you take in has nothing to do with it, according to Krugman. If there was higher demand, corporations and factories would be hiring in order to make more product. Neither is happening but Krugmas has to lie to calm down the low-information voters. Revenue isn’t the problem. Government spending is. Also, the economy, under Obama, is stagnant and experiencing a 31-year low in labor force participation which has lead to record long-term unemployment.

California is nowhere near being in a budget surplus. Guess Krugman doesn’t read the paper he works for. Krugman is going off of a prediction made by California’s moonbat Governor Jerry Brown, not actual numbers.

Still, will economic recovery be enough to stabilize the fiscal outlook? The answer is, pretty much.

Recently the nonpartisan Center on Budget and Policy Priorities took Congressional Budget Office projections for the next decade and updated them to take account of two major deficit-reduction actions: the spending cuts agreed to in 2011, amounting to almost $1.5 trillion over the next decade; and the roughly $600 billion in tax increases on the affluent agreed to at the beginning of this year. What the center finds is a budget outlook that, as I said, isn’t great but isn’t terrible: It projects that the ratio of debt to G.D.P., the standard measure of America’s debt position, will be only modestly higher in 2022 than it is now.

As most of us know, the CBO has a terrible record with their projections (See Clinton surplus and Bush surplus projections along with Social Security, Medicare and ObamaCare projections).

The center calls for another $1.4 trillion in deficit reduction, which would completely stabilize the debt ratio; President Obama has called for roughly the same amount. Even without such actions, however, the budget outlook for the next 10 years doesn’t look at all alarming.

Really? The CBO projected that Obama’s 2012 budget would push the national debt up past $20 trillion. It was so bad that Democrats in the House and Senate gave it no votes. Doubling the national debt is not “alarming” to the Keynesian fool Krugman.

Now, projections that run further into the future do suggest trouble, as an aging population and rising health care costs continue to push federal spending higher. But here’s a question you almost never see seriously addressed: Why, exactly, should we believe that it’s necessary, or even possible, to decide right now how we will eventually address the budget issues of the 2030s?

But, but, but didn’t Krugman claim that ObamaCare would stop the raise in health care costs and save money? Didn’t the CBO make the same claims? Yes and both are wrong as always. Krugman is your typical spend-and-tax, tax-and-spend liberal who wants to continue this spending spree and kick the responsibilities of paying for it down the road to 2030.

Let’s do it America. Demand term limits so we can get career politicians out of our pockets.

PRINCETON, NJ — Even after the 2012 election in which Americans re-elected most of the sitting members of the U.S. House and Senate — as is typical in national elections — three-quarters of Americans say that, given the opportunity, they would vote “for” term limits for members of both houses of Congress.

g9zuvfs2bemp-v0u6cmqzq

 

[...]Americans are nearly as open to major electoral reform when it comes to doing away with the Electoral College. Sixty-three percent would abolish this unique, but sometimes controversial, mechanism for electing presidents that was devised by the framers of the Constitution. While constitutional and statutory revisions have been made to the Electoral College since the nation’s founding, numerous efforts to abolish it over the last 200+ years have met with little success.

There is even less partisan variation in support for this proposal than there is for term limits, with between 61% and 66% of all major party groups saying they would vote to do away with the Electoral College if they could. Similarly, between 60% and 69% of all major age groups take this position.

How did this failure get reelected?

From The Hill:

President Obama is entering his second term with many of the nation’s voters still pessimistic or unsure about their economic prospects, a new poll for The Hill has found.

Due to things getting worse for everybody under Obama’s presidency and due to Obamanomics.

The president was reelected for another four years by a relatively comfortable margin, but 39 percent of likely voters say his first four years were worse than expected, compared to just 18 percent who say he exceeded expectations. Forty-one percent of those polled said his first term went as expected.

The president assumed office in the midst of one of the worst financial meltdowns in U.S. history, and those polled are still feeling the ensuing recession’s impact four years later. On the economic front, 42 percent say they are worse off now than when Obama first took office, compared to 26 percent who say they are better off.

The recession ended in July of 09 so that can’t be blamed.

Respondents are not significantly more optimistic about the next four years, either.

Sixty percent say they do not expect to make major economic strides during Obama’s second term, compared to just 38 percent who expect to be better off in 2016.

Democrats want to ban guns simply because they’re scary looking and because they know an unarmed society is easier to enslave.

From Washington Examiner:

A Richmond-area lawmaker brandished an AK-47 on the floor of the Virginia House of Delegates on Thursday in a wild stunt aimed at rallying support for tougher gun laws.

Del. Joe Morrissey, D-Highland Springs, pulled the weapon out shortly after the day’s session got underway, a time when legislators typically welcome school groups and other visitors in the chamber’s gallery.

Morrissey assured his colleagues the gun was not loaded and pointed it toward the ceiling as he pleaded for Republican House Speaker Bill Howell to help push through a subcommittee the assault weapons ban that Morrissey is proposing.

There is no such thing as an assault weapon. It’s a liberal created term used to confuse and scare idiots. The AK-47, sold in America, only shoots one bullet like every other semiautomatic weapon. It looks scary and this scares idiots.

“A lot of people don’t know that in many locations in the commonwealth, you can take this gun, you can walk in the middle of Main Street loaded and not be in violation of the law,” Morrissey said. “Even though the law right now says you can’t bring this gun into a high school or elementary or middle school, there is nothing from keeping you from walking in front of [an elementary school with a gun].”

Wonder if this idiot is licensed to carry? Did he go through the FBI background check? I’m going to guess he isn’t and if he isn’t he should be the first idiot tried by the Obama administration.
