Bush League

Less than clever witticisms aside, having the name Bush does not make you bush league — governing like Obama does, as Peggy Noonan observes:

There is a growing air of incompetence around Mr. Obama’s White House. It was seen again this week in Supreme Court arguments over the administration’s challenge to Arizona’s attempted crackdown on illegal immigration. As Greg Stohr of Bloomberg News wrote, the court seemed to be disagreeing with the administration’s understanding of federal power: “Solicitor General Donald Verrilli … met resistance across ideological lines. … Even Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the court’s only Hispanic and an Obama appointee, told Verrilli his argument is ‘not selling very well.'” This follows last month’s embarrassing showing over the constitutionality of parts of ObamaCare.

All of this looks so bush league, so scattered. Add it to the General Services Administration, to Solyndra, to the other scandals, and you get a growing sense that no one’s in charge, that the administration is paying attention to politics but not day-to-day governance.

No wonder no one in the Obama camp — including Obama — looks all that lively lately. Hopey Change has boiled down to inept authoritarian statists attempting to crush the life out of a society that historically has had no use for them. Only the most clueless or ideologically deranged could want four more years of this.

The moonbat magic has gone flat.

On tips from J, G. Fox, and Varla. Hat tip: Hot Air.

    I have to say that it’s been rich watching the government lawyer fall flat on his face while arguing for these ridiculous positions. Kinda sticks a knife into the idea that libs are smarter than the rest of us, and into the idea that Obama is smarter than everybody. Rich. Schadenfreude.

    “Only the most clueless or ideologically deranged could want four more years of this.”

    And yet they seem to. Blacks will vote for him like they did in 2008, and for no better reason than they did last time around. Too bad they don’t seem to have a very good collective understanding of economics or current affairs. Non-whites like to complain that we’re no better off than we were before Obama took office. Blacks, despite all the favors and handouts, have gotten completely screwed by the damage Obama has perpetrated on the economy. Look at unemployment rates, home ownership, education, and overall economic opportunity for blacks, and the numbers are atrocious. Blacks are smarter that this. I don’t get it.

    You can say the same thing for Jews, who will also vote for Obama in November, mostly because their parents have never voted for a Republican their entire lives. But if you look at what Obama has done to our relationship with Israel and Obama’s cuddling up to Muslim countries, you have to shake your head in disappointment. Add to that what Obama has done to the economy, small businesses, over-regulation our taxes, and you have to ask why Jews would want Obama reelected. Jews are smarter than this. I don’t get this either.

    Hispanics, same thing. Hispanics that came through the proper channels and pay taxes, are being screwed by the millions of illegals that are taking their jobs, driving down labor rates, raising their taxes, and taking away the opportunities they came here to earn. But Hispanics will predominantly vote for Obama, just like they always have. You have to wonder why this might be the case. I don’t get this either.

    Then let me introduce you to the Democrat-Farm-Labor (DFL) party of Teh Peoples Republic of Minnesota.

  • KHarn

    Will the commies LAO and JILL come forward to explain and justify this failure? No, because they have been trained to ATTACK, MAKE DEMANDS and MOCK the facts, not to defend their beliefs.

    I almost wish GUNTHER was still around, at least he stood up and defended his beliefs like a MAN. Not once did he resort to GRADE SCHOOL whining.

  • Gunny G

    Obutthole is the sea anchor for the Demmerhoid Party and I for one hope he drags them under.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    I’ve been tacitly pointing that out to all my liberal friends…

    A historic landslide like never has been seen before…or since will emerge.
    Actually I think you’re forgetting Reagan in both 1980 and 1984. In 1980 he beat incumbent Jimmy Carter – in the electoral college the score was 489-49 and carter got only 6 states (most of them tiny eastern ones) and DC. The popular vote was 43,903,230 to 35,480,115, 50.7% to 41%.

    To add insult to injury, he did it again in 1984 against Mondale, Jimmy Carter’s VP. Mondale managed to get one state (his home state) and DC, for an electoral college score of 525-13. The popular vote was 54,455,472 to 37,577,352, or 58.8% to 40.6%.

    I’m not convinced Romney has what it takes to get numbers like that – I’ll be more than content if he simply wins the electoral college and sends our “dear leader” packing so that Michelle Obama can get her dream of walking out the White House front door and just keeping on going.

    So yeah, I hope you’re right and I’m wrong and Romney tops Reagan’s two landslides, but I’m doubting it will be quite that good.


    In 1972 Richard Nixon wiped the floor with George McGovern. McGovern managed to carry only MA and DC for an electoral total of 520 to 17. In terms of the popular vote it was 47,168,710 to 29,173,222 or 60.7% to 37.5% so, really, Nixon had the top landslide if you consider the popular vote, although Reagan edged him out if you use the electoral college to decide it.

    Meet Jill, lao and their ilk.

    Of course, if it’s true he’s a Canadian the only way he’ll have a say, other than by making illegal campaign contributions or spewing his hatred and filth in forums like this and others, is if he comes across the border to vote illegally – I wouldn’t put it past him.

  • lao

    Hey bobby, QUOTE some of my “hatred and filth”.

    Oh wait, I forgot, it’s Monday and you are IGNORING me.

  • TaterSalad

    Barack Obama is an empty shell of a human along with being a narcissistic, self centered ruler of America. He thinks he is above the law. How things have “changed” since his election days when he was telling us that war was bad, GWB was bad and destructive, didn’t have permission for this and that, transparency during the healthcare debate BS and now he is doing the exact thing. That my friends is a hypocrite, plain and simple. This self centered President and his agenda has hurt America at a time when it was “vulnerable” and he has taken us to the lowest point of possible survival as a free nation.

  • Kevin Barret

    And yet…he’s still ahead in the polls.

  • Bo Jangles

    “Only the most clueless or ideologically deranged could want four more years of this…”

    Never underestimate the weakness, gullibility, and stupidity of the voters.

  • Robert Peahl

    Kevin Barret-
    Yes, the RCP average has Obama with a 3 point edge. However, that covers the period from 11 April through 29 April. The three polls from last week show one tie, one with Romney +1, the third Romney +2.
    Polls are fun to discuss, but on a personal level I don’t pay a lot of attention to them. Polls which rely on “likely voters” tend to be more accurate than those which are random or even those of “registered voters”. Considering the turnout % for any election here in the U.S., polling registered voters is at best about a 50-50 deal.

    Well, Bob Roberts—after the trouncing that Nixon gave to McGovern the nation paid the price with Watergate. The libs/progs/commies refused to give up without a fight.

    BTW – who, exactly, was “Deep Throat?” Now it seems to be a bit questionable. Could other parts of the “Watergate” scandal have been made up or unrealistically magnified. Does anybody remember what the break-in into DNC HQ at the Watergate complex was about?—The breaker-inners were seeking documentation that Communist Fidel Castro was funding McGovern’s campaign. The whole Watergate scandal was actually a smokescreen to obsfucate that little remembered (and very inconvenient) truth.

    Sometimes it pays to be an oooooolllddd Momster (I was a young Momster during the Watergate hearings).
