CUPCAKES???? I Know Obama Didn't Say That To The American People!!!

You know... I refuse to even blog on President Obama's latest insulting attempt at humor to try and justify the 'non-stimulating' stimulus bill. I will just let the picture and the words speak for themselves:

Obama says, “we helped stop a recession from becoming a depression,” and explains how the jobs programs in the stimulus are helping. Says tax cuts are helping people buy “cupcakes and other necessities of life.”

CUPCAKES???? A necessity of life?????!!???

Obama Show Your Records - PLEASE!

Way back in June 2008, I posted the following on this blog relative to Barack Obama and the birth certificate atomic bomb:

From feed-back received to this blog, the voting public want more transparency as it relates to this presumptive Democratic nominee. For instance... the blogging community wants to see any, and all, of Senator Obama's Illinois State Senate daily logs, pertinent papers, records, etc.

Because the Senator has literally come out of no where onto the national stage... a request of his State Senate diaries, logs, and records is fair. The excuses from his camp continue to mount... and still limited amount of his records have been produced, and is raising eyebrows and casting doubt. The Republicans are going to hound Obama on this issue until he produces them. So... go ahead and bring the files out now!

And, there are others who repeatedly request he produce an original, authentic, officially-signed birth certificate for the world to see. What's the big deal... and why won't he come clean and show it? All of the "it's-none-of-your-business-drama" surrounding that request is a smoke-screen.

What will the actual birth certificate reveal? That Obama was born illegitimate? So what. He is not the first... nor will he be the last illegitimate birth in the world. That his race maybe listed as 'Caucasian'? Non-issue! His skin tone reflects he's Black... Put the real birth certificate out there–– sooner rather than later–– and let the chips fall where they may.

Did Obama comply and give up the much sought-after paperwork? NO!

This blog even went a step further and wrote an open letter to the President immediately following his election in November 2008 which was picked up by and posted on several other national blogs:

I am writing this open letter to you today on behalf of both sides. Mr. President-elect, surely you know that there is a 'tempest in the teapot' brewing regarding the vault version of your birth certificate. And, only you, Sir, can bring closure to this issue.

...the issue is surfacing in main line media outlets as well, American citizens–– yes, the ones who voted for you... and the ones who did not–– are 'bewildered' that you feel the need to pay money (in the midst of a recession) to three major law firms to make sure that the American people, who you wish to serve, cannot have access to your birth records in Hawaii or your college transcripts. Speculation is running rampant that you received aid as a foreign student. So, instead of relishing in your victory, those who supported you are having to confront these allegations daily...without documentation or ammunition to counter the claims.

So, please Mr. Obama... for the sake of all the people who supported and voted for you... and, also to quiet (once, and for all) the skeptics, naysayers, and people who already deem your presidency 'illegitimate', do like Senator John McCain did, and present your birth certificate to the American people today.

Now... I know that I am no where near as smart as President Obama... but one thing I am pretty astute at: reading people and forecasting upcoming moods in the U.S. I knew back in June of last year that this issue is NOT going away, and will bog down this young president's agenda as long as he keeps stalling.

President Obama, for the last time, please just release your records so you can move on. You will not have any peace or any credibility in middle America until you do!

President Obama's Mojo Needs Reworking––Quick!

A recent Washington Post-ABC News poll has President Barack Obama’s public approval numbers dropping like a lead balloon. This poll shows Obama' disapproval rating has climbed 11 percent in the last three months and his approval ratings are down ten points.

That is a steep drop by anyone's calculation. With merely 180-days under his belt as Commander-in-Chief, Obama's inner circle of advisors most certainly are concerned about these poll numbers.

Conventional wisdom says Obama's sinking numbers are a reflection of voters now experiencing buyers remorse and also reflects the hundreds of thousands of Independents and Obamacans (Republicans who voted for Obama during the 2008 election) who are especially troubled and disenchanted with his cap and trade and health care reform bills.

"While he still has a majority of America on his side, according to the latest Washington Post/ABC News Poll, when asked specifically about the economy, health care, and unemployment, President Obama’s support is slipping, with a low of 43% approval when it comes to the deficit". ~ July 20, 2009

Another disturbing indicator to add to Obama's poll troubles is that approximately 44 percent of Americans now say they don't trust Obama to handle health care and that number may rise after his budget chief, Peter Orszag, said on a recent Sunday talk show that abortions may be included in the final package Obama signs.

The president seemingly has lost his shine. And in this instant-grits-gotta-have-it-right-now society... if he doesn't get his mojo back working before the August recess, it may be lost forever–– rendering him impotent for the remainder of his presidency!

Michael Steele: What Are You Saying?

During a recent meeting with a group of young Republicans, GOP National Committee Chairman, Michael Steele, told the crowd that he would reach out to black voters by offering them fried chicken and potato salad. His remarks were an answer to a question directed at him from the audience on how he planned to woo African Americans to the Republican party.

The exchange with Steel and participants in the audience went as follows::

"My plan is to say 'Y'all come,' because a lot of you are already here", said Steel. Someone in the audience said, "I'll bring the collard greens," and Steele replied, "I got the fried chicken and potato salad."

If this is the strategy the Republicans plan to put forward to galvanize Black voters to the tent, then it will not be successful. These remarks were not funny and can be construed, by many, as quite condescending.

The Barracuda Turns Political World Topsy Turvy

Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska has dropped one of the biggest bomb shells of the year. On a slow news day and the eve of Independence Day, the 2008 Vice Presidential candidate called, what many had thought to be a routine press conference, and instead announced to the world that she will be quitting her position as Governor effective in two weeks.

Speculations are running rampant throughout the DC beltway surrounding this unexpected announcement... and the bloggers have had a field day trying to guess what the real reason behind her move. According to Jonathan Martin at

"Two of her own GOP allies were told this week that Palin would announce that she was definitely not running for re-election, but the move to outright leave office has caught many of her supporters by surprise".

Governor Palin has suffered some of the severest and cruelest criticism of any candidate in recent political history. Verbal attacks directed toward her children and the constant and continual ethics probes she has faced since she came from obscurity last year as Senator John McCain's running mate, are rumored to have taken their toll on the Barracuda.

MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell say her sources revealed that she (Palin) has "had it" with national politics and is sick of it. Mitchell also added that Palin does not plan to pursue the Republican nomination in 2012.

Palin has definitely turned the political world upside-down. As her followers wait and see what her future plans are, those in Republican party need to come up with a strategy and a plan if they hope to stop the party's implosion!
