Fresh off a masterful dicing-and-slicing of the Obamapologist yentas on The View, Michelle told Hannity why the DNC/Team Obama's bizarre allegation -that the RNC was deploying "K-Street funded mobs" to disrupt town hall meetings and other events- is the epitome of hypocrisy... and why there is likely soon to be a huge public backlash against this mother-of-all-smear-campaigns.
And it seems as though the hypocrites of the Democratic Party are merely projecting: you'd have to have been living in a cave in North Korea for the last year to have not noticed where the real paid-mobs are coming from... both on the ground, and on the internet. Team Obama's appalling Soros-seeded astroturf programs are a lot of things... but subtle isn't one of them. These faux-grassroots efforts -such as door-to-door Obamacare canvassing and battalions of internet trolls- have been largely ineffective in the face of growing popular resentment of The One's taking a sledgehammer to this society.
Hope-n-Change brownshirts of ACORN are now getting close to actual physical confrontation [h/t: Moonbattery] with what are just normal American citizens involved in healthy participatory democracy. You have to wonder how anyone could still believe Barack Obama as he purports to be "post-partisan", "bi-partisan", and "interested in listening to opposing views" -please. Rather, he's here to ram a heavily-seasoned crap sandwich down our throats as fast as we can swallow... while lying about most anything that suits his purposes and aggressively attacking opponents Chicago hardball style. Many are figuring this out as the ether finally wears off- and they come to realize that it's un-American the way the Obama-Pelosi-Reid triumvirate operates.
Ultra-liberal pedal-to-the-metal Obama has unecessarily aroused a largely silent opposition with his power grabs... betraying poor judgement and political instinct. We've got our new Patrick Henry's in Mark Levin, Michelle Malkin, et. al.- and they're bringing the truth The Left try so hard to depress, deflect, and obsfucate. Those who felt resigned to their fate under an Obama Administration are starting to speak up- and as we see now, exposing themselves to the wrath of the disingenuous Obama machine. It wasn't enough apparently, simply attacking and painting with a broad brush right-leaning Obama critics in the media such as Hannity and Limbaugh- Obama has now turned the DNC character-assasination guns on the American electorate.... and it's not going to win him any new friends in this country.
This shameful episode should make clear to anyone still giving Obama the benefit of the doubt just what this far-left elitist thinks of your opinion. Note that whenever Obama, Emanuel, or Gibbs are asked about why polls show so many people oppose the Cap-n-Trade and Obamacare proposals, they always segue right-into "we need to educate the public...".
LOL- sorry Barack, Constitutionally-aware
patriots don't take lectures from Marxists.
And just keep digging- Americans have had just about enough of your wack-pack cabinet, dubious tactics, and habitual dishonesty... and after the failure of the Porkulus bill to stimulate anything but inflation, IMO the Democrats will be decimated in midterms 15 mos. from now. In short, you blew it... and are only making things worse by smearing good-faith opposition. Even Bill Clinton had the sense to hire Dick Morris and moderate his policies in 1994, working the the GOP in a way that got him re-elected easily... but not this crew- apparently it's Revolution-or-Death this time.
Barack and Rahm like to think of themselves as sharp-elbowed, street-smart operators always on the offensive- but this hubristic pair of Chi-Town hustlers don't handle the pressure so well now that they're on the other-end-of-the-hose. With the unprecedented goodwill he came to DC with, all Obama had to do was be mediocre really, smile alot, and play to the narrative that he's doing his best to fix "Bush's" mess. Instead, he has stepped-in-it big-time, his political momentum promptly evaporating... a monumental wasted opportunity for this myopic would-be revolutionary.

Congratulations Michelle- keep up the good fight!

Following reports that White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has been orchestrating an effort to intimidate members of Congress and Governors who raise legitimate concerns regarding the effectiveness of the stimulus, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member Darrell Issa (R-CA) sent a heated letter to Emanuel saying:
“While this type of scare tactic may work In Chicago, it will not work to intimidate me or other Members of the United States Congress.”
“I and others have dared to bring these facts to the attention of President Obama, the Congress and the American people,” Issa wrote. “You’ve unfortunately reacted by once again resorting to the playbook of the Chicago political machine.”
The hectoring ways of ruthless Chicago thuglet Rahm Emanuel surely work better from a position of strength; he and Barack have no problem reminding you that they're "keeping score", either. But when Blue Dogs and other Democratic moderates sense a presidency in rapid decline -one that seems reckless, radical, and self-preserving above all- they start to think again about just what they're hooking their wagon up-to here... as they ride into mid-terms a mere 15 mos from now.
What a shame for the Bolshevik charlatans of Team Obama that they didn't get that planned civilian militia's boots on the ground before the country started to turn on them, eh?
With the habitual dishonesty, appalling Alinskyite tactics, and towering arrogance of Barack Obama -coupled to his complete inability to handle criticism of any sort- it was only a matter of time before the wheels came off this demented road-trip. The trouble is that Obama appears to lack any sense of self awareness, living in a world of delusion enabled by a fawning press and compliant party machine, while surrounding himself with obsequious bootlicks. Barack really seemed to believe that he was the new Elvis... and now seems genuinely bewildered as he faces opposition to his misguided leftist policies for the first time in his hollow career.
Anyone who's attended a town-hall meeting or read a presidential poll lately can tell you that the country is finally coming out of the ether. And the Dear Leader's default setting -blaming George W. Bush for everything- has surely jumped the shark at this point.
Great job, Congressman Issa- so proud to have the GOP stand up to this outrageous administration. It's about time we all called-out Team Obama on their lies, tactics, and hidden agenda- as this crew is way, way out-of-control.
-h/t: Drudge Report-
Spotted: Emanuel was just seen backing-up a U-haul at the Chicago fish market... then off to OfficeMax for 435 manilla envelopes...
Van Jones is Barack Obama's Green Jobs Czar.
Maybe we shouldn't be surprised by this comprehensive lack of results, as Mr Jones seems to have no idea whatsoever what a "green job" even is, nor does the Obama Administration... even though he has been tasked with creating them, and paid well to do so.
And as reported in The Examiner:
Jones told Newsweek that the real problem is that no one in authority can agree about just what a “green job” actually is:
"Well, we still don’t have a unified definition, and that’s not unusual in a democracy. It takes a while for all the states and the federal government to come to some agreement. But the Department of Labor is working on it very diligently. Fundamentally, it’s getting there, but we haven’t crossed the finish line yet."
The 41-year-old Yale Law School graduate and civil rights lawyer is also the founder of California's Ella Baker Center for Human Rights- "a non-profit agency for justice, opportunities and peace." Sounds idyllic, but Jones' past isn't so pastoral-
The Ella Baker Center was connected to STORM (Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement), a "multi-racial activist collective with Marxist influences" with which Jones was involved.
In 1992, Van Jones founded another STORM project, Bay Area PoliceWatch, a "hotline and lawyer-referral service for victims and survivors of police abuse." This is fitting, perhaps, since Jones was himself arrested and detained briefly during a protest after the Rodney King verdict that same year. Jones told the East Bay Express in 2005:
"I was a rowdy (black seperatist) nationalist on April 28th , and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist...
"I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.' I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary."
Like a character out of The Big Chill, Van Jones seems to have evolved from radical activist to Establishment insider. Perhaps only a left-wing administration incapable of recognizing irony would put a self-described communist in charge of creating jobs.
Luckily for Jones and Obama's many other "Czars" with dubious credentials and troubling backgrounds, his new job was not dependent upon making it through Congressional hearings.
