On the road again! Barack's magical mystery tour has hit the highway, first stop... Iowa. And no, it was not a Field of Dreams moment where Barry suddenly heard a voice out in an Iowa cornfield. More like he was pitching his usual knuckle balls and killing worms with his delivery.
"We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again," Obama told a crowd in Decorah, Iowa. "But over the last six months we've had a run of bad luck."
What the...?! A run of bad luck?!! Oh yeah, Obama had it all going his way, and then, whoopsie, things went a little caca. But he doesn't cite the things that you or I or any reasonable thinking person would ascribe as impactful on the American economy. Nope, it was that darn tsunami in Japan, some trouble in the Middle East and then that crazy European debt crisis. We'd just be going like gang busters if it weren't for the hand of fate. Sheesh.
"All those things have been headwinds for our economy," Obama said. "Now, those are things that we can't completely control. The question is, how do we manage these challenging times and do the right things when it comes to those things that we can control?"
Oh, well simple. Step one would be get your god damn boot off our necks. Stop threatening to raise taxes, quit spending everything in sight, stop bullying businesses like BP and Boeing, and quit being such a jerk.
"The problem," Obama continued, "is that we've got the kind of partisan brinksmanship that is willing to put party ahead of country, that is more interested in seeing their political opponents lose than seeing the country win. Nowhere was that more evident than in this recent debt ceiling debacle."
Yeah, and the first name on the list of offenders is Barack Hussein Obama. Good grief, can this huckster actually believe he can get away with this nonsense? It's hard to imagine, but he keeps saying it.

This is a little closer look at what he's really trying to drive over the country:

All just part of another trip the White House claims is non-political. Yes, you see, the President's men explain the armoured bus tour as part of the president's official duties to discuss economic issues with the public.


With a hat tip to Jill over at Pundit and Pundette.


  1. I get it.
    Government is the only one that can create jobs.
    Government is helpless when it comes to creating jobs or assisting in their creation.
    What's not to understand?

  2. I get it.
    Obama is on a "listening tour," but he doesn't want to listen to anything that isn't coming from his Party/POV.

    And he's running as an outsider.

    What's not to understand?

  3. Obama's not really big on listening. Someone ought to mention that to him.

    And how does he think he can be at the heart of DC, be behind a massive expansion in the scope and power of the central government, and still think he can paint himself as an outsider?

  4. The Won: "We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again," Obama told a crowd in Decorah, Iowa. "But over the last six months we've had a run of bad luck."

    Nicholas: "What the...?! A run of bad luck?!! Oh yeah, Obama had it all going his way, and then, whoopsie, things went a little caca. ..."

    Ilíon: Quite so. But there is more -- Let's overlook, at the moment, that those good things he asserts never actually happened in reality, and focus on the meaning of what he said: "Don't judge my administration (or me!) by a consistent standard! Credit me the good results of my policies (even if they never happened), but never, never, never hold the bad results against me!"

  5. I know! It's just... made up! No, Barry, you didn't fix the economy, and no Barry, the tsunami that damaged Japan is not the reason our economy is hurting. It's crazy. I'm glad to see his approval ratings have finally tanked into the sub-40's. He should be in the twenties or teens. My only explanation is that a large group of us seem to be condemned to blindness.

  6. Barack's black bus of death needs a V-shaped blade in front to break through road blocks.
    Just saying. These people can't do anything right.

    Sarah gets a bus and Mr. Wagu beef at $120/lb who never rode a bus in his life then needs a bus, too. It would be sad if it was not so pathetic.

  7. NASA producing a "report" speculating that alien may destroy humanity to protect other civilizations in the universe? Who are these clowns? Our "global warming" is going to affect other planets? Time to clean house in government from top to bottom. Suspend all the civil service rules to fire the lot. This crap has to stop. Now.

  8. Oh dear! I guess those rich Libertarians should be thinking space statins, instead of oil-rig high-rises.

    But what's even more alarming, this means I have to rethink my reaction to the administration re-directing NASA to make nice with Muslims!

    Up is down! Black is white! It's Belvedere's buttercups all over again!

  9. Oh Cathy, I agree. Besides it's Hollywood's job to produce the Leftist propaganda for these worthless misanthropes. And they actually already pushed this same premise with that new The Day The Earth Stood Still. In the 1950s original, it was atomic weapons. And I remember thinking when I saw it as a kid that the alien "confederation of planets" must be pretty stupid even then--did they not know what an average star put out? Or did they have their eyes on our resources? Either way I identified with the American soldiers that were disintegrated by Gort. What if that was me? It should have been. Then I wouldn't have seen how far we could sink.

  10. The Penn State professor who has an affiliation with NASA and his team of Nittany Lion dreamers are not likely to be destroyed by alien babes with red ray guns, whether those babes want to eat their brains or are simply ticked off about the global climate. The only way they were able to get so close and sneak up was because of the incredibly good disguises the aliens were wearing. They were totally hot right up to the point where they pull out those ray guns. I'm thinking the professor should just invent special x-ray glasses that will allow them to see that ugly green head before they got so close with those red blasters. Simple.

  11. ...want to eat their brains...

    They're safe there. No brains in the whole bunch.

  12. Hey Ace, did you ever catch that show Prime Suspect from the 1990's with Helen Mirren? Man, that's a pretty good show!

  13. [Best Robert De Niro imprersonation]
    "You talkin' to me?"

    Yes, I have seen and I do like most of the BBC programs--even with their heavy dose of political correctness. I even like the new Sherlock Holmes series set in modern times. I'm pretty sure that you can catch that at Netflix if you are so inclined, and there are only three episodes so far so it shouldn't take much time.

  14. Sherlock Holmes, eh? That sounds good. Sadly, I don't have streaming, just dvd by mail. I'll take a look at it though.
