That's the only explanation for these numbers that I can think of - not only have 49 out of 50 states lost jobs since the February stimulus job creation estimate was put out, but eight states have lost more jobs than they're supposed to gain by the end of next year! If we accept the premise that we all know is true, that Obama is infallible, then we're going to have OVER! SIX! MILLION! NEW! JOBS! within the next 14 months! WOOHOO!!!!!1!!!ELEVENTYONE!!!

I really wish Mary Katharine Ham had followed the lead of some other blogs and posted a picture of, say, herself, instead of Helen Thomas, so as not to require the eyebleach. In other words, there's a picture over there that is gonna make you double over in pain.

Is it legal for an employer to ask who someone voted for in the last presidential election, and make a decision based on that? I wouldn't write off a liberal just for being liberal, but having voted for Obama shows such an utter lack of judgment and foresight that I don't think hiring someone who voted for him would be choosing someone with good long-term planning skills.

You mean Obama's efforts to diminish the United States on the World Stage have not worked with the Russians? Color me shocked!
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said today that the threat of sanctions against Iran would be counterproductive, resisting U.S. efforts to win agreement for measures if Iran fails to prove that its nuclear program is peaceful.
Lavrov spoke following talks with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is trying to gauge Moscow's willingness to join the U.S. in imposing sanctions if Iran fails to come clean on its nuclear activities.
Lavrov said Russia's position is that under current conditions even the threat of sanctions against Iran would be counterproductive.
Yup. Looks like the Nobel Magic has worn off.

“Mr. Obama’s English is easy to understand because he pronounces words clearly and speaks at a relatively slow clip,” said Professor Tadaharu Nikaido, a communication specialist here.It would probably be too easy a shot to point out that a teleprompter only moves words so fast. Or the dangers of trying to learn the geography of 57 states from our president. Or trying to learn how to communicate that you're having an asthma flareup.
It's possible the gay community has paraded so much, it's become ineffective.
Vowing not to back down from urging Obama to follow up on his campaign promises to gays, many gay activists view Sunday's March for Equality as just the beginning.They want President Barack Obama to follow his words with actions and end the discriminatory "don't ask, don't tell" policy of homosexuals in military service, and to take a stance on the Defense of Marriage Act.
The White House responds by telling a reporter that the demonstrators aren't being taken seriously.
So we move from "I Won" to "governing a closely divided country is complicated and difficult" (h/t) in a mere 260 days. But a lot can happen in 260 days, that's almost as long as it took Obama to win a Nobel.
I could see Obama doing away with DADT - it's largely a failed policy as soldiers have continued to be asked indirectly (i.e. do you have a girlfriend back home?) and thus forced to lie, and I'm sure Obama would take whatever chance he had to take a potshot at the military. But Teh Won has already taken a stance on DOMA - I'm guessing we're going to see a whole lot more of "I really want to, but I just can't" thrown at the gay community.
So does "We will not back down" mean the gay community will actually vote against a candidate who pretends to have their backs while stabbing them in it next election season? At what point will the gay community realize that they will be collectively thrown under the bus each and every time they let it happen to themselves? Or are they only fooling themselves in the same way we fool ourselves every time we cast a vote for a RINO, telling ourselves the alternative would be worse?
Under a two-year-old agreement with the federal department of homeland security, Arpaio and his deputies had been authorised to enforce federal immigration law by arresting suspected illegal immigrants in the field and by checking the immigration status of people arrested on other offences.
But after drawing thousands of complaints and a civil rights investigation from the justice department, Arpaio was this week stripped of his federal authority to make immigration arrests. County attorney Andrew Thomas, one of Arpaio's supporters, condemned the "setback in the fight against illegal immigration".

I suppose since Clinton usurped the title of America's first black president, Obama has to be first at something.

Two quick points:
First of all, I don't give a shit what two consenting adults do, so long as no laws are broken, but praising a man who advocated the shit NAMBLA endorses, well, that has no place in our discourse.
And secondly, yeah, I am going there regarding the guilt by association thing, considering that if the left wants to try to link a blogger or talking head on our side to some shady character, I believe that tying a man entrusted by the President of the United States, and beyond the normal oversight that Congress has over Cabinet officials, to do anything more than sweep the floors should be held to the highest degree of scrutiny (see: Jones, Van).
And let me conclude with this snippet from Zombie:
October 02, 2009
I had a feeling something like this was going to come up - there's a bizarre relationship between the gay community and NAMBLA that seems to result in the gay community not squishing those creepy pedophiles like the cockroaches they are.
What is surprising is that no one is mentioning reports that [Safe Schools Czar Kevin]Jennings publicly stated that he was inspired by one of the biggest promoters of pedophilia in the country — Harry Hay. Hay actively promoted sex between men and boys and supported the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). Transcripts of a GLSEN conference in NYC on October 25, 1997 indicate that Jennings said, “one of the people that always inspired me is Harry Hay.”Besides being one of the people who lobbied for NAMBLA to be included in gay rights activities, Harry Hay was also a member of the Communist Party, the Gay Liberation Front, and cofounded the Radical Faeries and the Mattachines. Harry Hay considered the exclusion of NAMBLA from gay rights activities as part of a dangerous exclusionist trend.
There's a serious cognitive disconnect on the left regarding admiring activists and actually looking at their activist enterprises. The fact that the person now appointed to keep our schools safe isn't able to recognize that someone can do some good things but still be fundamentally sick and harmful to others is way beyond concerning.
So President Obama, can we please fire this asshat now? Or are you writing his extremist alliances off the same way you wrote off Bill Ayers' past actions?

ICANN is becoming an "International Body" and the US gov't is no longer in charge of the Internet.
Yay! I hope the wonderful, impartial, totally not-dominated-by-dictators, UN will be in charge. That way, China can protect all of us from bad stuff.
Well, Obama has his Panama Canal. I have a sinking feeling Georgia is going to be his Afghanistan.
I figure Putin will wait until spring so Obama won't have the opportunity to boycott the Olympics.
This really deserves a witty comment here but I got nothing.
Insert your own for me. Make it good, I have a reputation to uphold.
H/T Totally not Drudge like everybody else.
They say he showed a blatant disregard for the truth when he said that Vancouver lost $1 billion when they had the Olympics.
So Beck starts off his program with the correction. (The clip will be on Hot Air in an hour or so).
Paraphrasing from memory
Yes, I meant "Calgary" not Vancouver. But while we're on the subject of Vancouver, let's discuss how they've spent 97 or 98% (I forget what he said V) of the billions they had budgeted and how they were a billion over budget on this and 4 billion over on that (I forget the 4 billion overbudget one, but he said that number V) and it's still months until they actually happen.
Bwa and a hahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahaha.
As I watch this show it appears since he's so obviously getting under Obama's skin, he's going after him harder and harder. With a funny ass comment "... and the mob....Ooooh, did I say that out loud?..."
How funny is it that the POTUS is getting punked by Beck?
At least it's funnier than his being punked by the Mad Mullahs and their little troll puppet.
Obama is doing what I thought could not be possible. He's lowering the presidency even lower than Clinton ever dreamed. At least Clinton knew who to mess with and who to ignore. He had thick skin.
For a man who's President of the United Fucking States he's a goddam whiny little punk.
Hell, for a 10 year old girl who got kicked off the teeter-totter he's a whiny goddam little punk.
H/T Nobody. Screw em.
