    Joe Biden and Cornell Belcher, Liberal Desperados

    Desperate people have a tendency to say desperate things to conceal their desperation but don’t tell the Obamians their desperation is showing. It’s becoming increasingly difficult, though, not to get exasperated over their disregard for truth and their ruthless invective.

    Liberals are getting more anxious by the day as their hopes for four more years of Obamamania diminish with every downtick in their leader’s approval ratings, every uptick in the unemployment numbers, every news item revealing the multiple scandals and disarray enveloping their hero’s administration, and evidence the president is becoming isolated and withdrawn.

    Still, the extremes to which liberals have been going lately and the outlandish rhetoric they employ suggest a serious disconnect from reality that should be disturbing to liberals and rational people alike.

    Vice President Joe Biden and Obama adviser Cornell Belcher are two cases in point of liberals and their thought processes sliding into a dark hole of bleak desperation.

    Never at a loss for words, always at a loss for rationality, Biden let slip another doozey last week during his ongoing push for passage of Obama’s ”jobs bill,” which even his Democrat Senate refuses to consider, as he trashed about for excuses for an economy in the toilet.

    He is now blaming the Chinese.

    More specifically, during an interview with NBC’s David Gregory, America’s clown prince attributed the nation’s worsening economy at least in part to Chinese real estate. He might just as well have blamed the price of tea in the Middle Kingdom. As Biden explained, “There are roughly, depending on the estimate, 30 to 50 million apartment units in China that are vacant and people are worried about the real estate bubble there.”

    So, vacant apartments in China are hurting America’s economy? I’m no more an economist than Clueless Joe but attributing any degree of our mess to a Chinese bubble of any sort borders on madness, or Bidenness.

    Biden went on to define the cure for what ails us: passage of Obama’s American Jobs Act which would add up to 2 million new jobs to America’s work force. If true and based on previous exaggerations it isn’t, points out they would be mostly government jobs, anyway, and the cost of the legislation would probably outweigh its benefits. (

    For his part, interviewer Gregory showed a marked lack of inquisitiveness by letting Biden get away with his claims. Had the interviewee been G.W. Bush a few years ago, Gregory and his MSM coterie would have verbally beaten Bush over the head and shoulders for such outlandishness.

    Last month, Obama lackey Cornell Belcher showed an even greater disregard for common sense than Biden when he, an African-American, charged GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, an African-American, with being a racist bigot toward African-Americans. . .

    GOD I wish I’d thought of this first. WONDERFUL!

  3. Lee says:

    Overheard someone complaining that student loans should be forgiven in bankruptcy proceedings – how about studying something that society values instead so you can pay back your debt?

  4. Bob Roberts says:

    So will the liberals protect your rights? APPARENTLY NOT! Imagine the fuss had Bush done something like this.

    Hackers are trying to screw up our economy even more. Meanwhile “Clueless in [insert any “occupy” site name here] seem to think that everything should be given them for free. Like lao they live in some imaginary place where things are just the way they want them to be and nobody actually has to work to pay for or produce anything. Wow, how wonderful it must be to live there – can we all go?

    From page 9 of this link: Faith-based Czar: Joshua Dubois

    Now what in the heck is the Obama administration doing getting involved in religion? I thought there was supposed to be some sort of wall thingy between church and state. At least that’s what the loony left, Obama’s people, tell me!


    Guantanamo Closure Czar: Danny Fried

    Appointed March 12, 2009

    Hey, someone better fire this guy. Wasn’t GITMO supposed to be closed what, two years, or so, ago – if not more?

    This guy is slacking! FIRE HIM!

    Jobs Czar: Jeffrey Immelt
    Chair of the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness35
    Executive Order 13501, issued February 6, 2009
    Note: Council name changed from Economic Recovery Advisory Board when Immelt replaced Paul Volcker on January 21, 2011

    OH, wait a minute, this one I know. He’s the head of GE, one of those corporations the left hates so much. How come Obama is cozying up to him? Is it all the jobs he’s exported to China? Is that what Obama hired him to do?

    Maybe Obama owed the Chinese a big favor for all the money they used to help throw the 2008 election?

  5. Bob Roberts says:

    I’m starting a pool… pick the day Obama finally runs out of excuses. In case of a tie, also submit the day he finally admits it’s his fault – but let it be known I’ve already picked NEVER!

    Government wants to be in charge of our food. Let’s see how they’re doing so far, in one of the spheres of influence where they are already responsible for food: How one teacher went undercover to expose vile school food

    The teacher speaking out lives and works in Chicago, whose government majorly screwed up the feeding of those inmates captive in its K-12 institutions. Perhaps we shouldn’t be trusting any liberal Chicagoans with responsibility over our food.

    OK, that’s pretty freaking hilarious! Good for you, Mom and Dad, for teaching this child that it’s not someone else’s fault that life is tough. Good for you, girl in the picture, for showing these people that their rhetoric and greed (yes, that’s what they have… they’re hypocrites like 99% of all liberals) are wrong.

  18. Thom Conspicuous says:

    Dear little girl,

    Your family is a 20% reduction in workforce away from becoming sympathetic to the cause of OWS and the other protests across this nation.

    Everyone else really cares about Americans getting screwed over.

  19. StanInTexas says:

    Thom, you are an idiot.

    Read what the sign says one more time. The lives of this family is not about the Father’s job. It is about the values instilled in them and the way they live their lives.

    Most likely, a 20% reduction in workforce would not touch her father. But even if it did, he would do what it takes to care and provide for his family, even if that meant delivering pizzas in the evening while he looked for work in the day.

    There is no way he would join the scum of the earth hippies at this trash-fest you call OWS!

  20. GoY says:

    Dear little girl,

    Your family is a 20% reduction in workforce away from becoming sympathetic to the cause of OWS and the other protests across this nation.

    And now you understand why the Obama regime is hellbent on destroying the American private sector.

    Dear Entitled, Profligate Consumer,

    People raised with values such as hard work and thrift have ample savings from the good times to make it through the bad. The girl’s family lives below their means, which means they can live when their needs temporarily exceed their income. This radical concept is known as saving money, and our best archaeologists suggest that ancient people once practiced “saving” before the development of government cheese.

    Henry Kissinger?????? Is this your back-door way of blaming the JOOOOOOOOOOOOOs for your inability to hold down a job?

  29. AC says:

    I get that the Fed is a problem, but what does Kissinger have to do with this?

    Kissinger is pure foreign policy. There’s no domestic monetary angle there.

    Don’t contaminate the cause of returning to sound, constitutional money by getting mixed up with Alex Jones and the anti-Semites.

    BREAKING: Iranian sleeper terrorist busted trying to hire Los Zetas for $1.5 million to hit Saudi Ambassador

    Fortunately the fool engaged an undercover DEA agent.

    The money is obviously coming from abroad.

    If the Iranians are willing to subcontract terror to Mexican cartels then we need to shut the friggin border now.

    Los Z is the #1 threat to our national security.

    I doubt the real cartel would have accepted, because they aren’t going to heat up every plaza simultaneously for a $1.5 million pittance – what they make less than an hour.

    But if Iranian sleepers see cartels as strong enough for terror work that reinforces why we must take this border situation seriously.

  33. AC says:

    Astute observers will remember the Z was behind the plot to blow up Falcon Dam, potentially flooding four million people to flush out the Gulf Cartel.

    Obama’s Zuccotti Gamble

    Perhaps feeling they have little to lose at this stage of his failed presidency, Barack Hussein Obama and his band of merry mutilators of the American Dream have decided to risk everything and throw their lot in with the people who most closely represent the president’s political and social philosophies.

    No, it’s not the labor unions whose support is in the bag as long as this administration endorses salary and benefits in lieu of fiscal sanity. No, it’s not African-Americans who though outwardly disenchanted with the president will still cast over 70% of their ballots for him next year. And no, it’s not his other core constituencies, the homosexuals, hispanics, Jews, and the Wall Street moneybaggers.

    Obama knows that gays are still giddy over the repeal of DADT, hispanics are aware his failure to put legalizing illegals on the front burner is a ploy to be remedied in his second term, many Jews think he doesn’t really hate Israel, and that enough of the people he called “fat cats” will open their fat wallets sufficiently wide to enable him to fill his billion dollar campaign war chest.

    Still, the Dems are taking a terrific gamble.

    It may be that the dogmatic Obama and his ideologically-driven advisers are so consumed by their arrogant sense of Alinskyite superiority that they have been blinded to the folly of offering tacit approval and advocating for the nihilism of America’s nouveau hippies, the twenty-first century’s version of Woodstock, the so-called “Occupy Wall Street” crowd.

    Dems are so confused over the protestors that pols such as Vice President Biden have compared them to the conservative Tea Party movement. Such a comparison only holds water if they somehow see similarities between the slovenly, insurrectionist, nihilistic Occupiers and the clean, respectful, patriotic Tea Partiers who wave American flags while the protestors wave dirty underwear.

    Nevertheless, I hope the Obamians hang in there with their support. Their backing of the anarchic groups who have infested Zuccotti Park in New York City for weeks and their compatriots throughout the country is a virtual endorsement of next year’s Republican ticket.

    Tuesday’s march movin’ on uptown to the deluxe pads of the rich in the sky won’t get them a piece of George Jefferson’s pie but should provide further insight into the extremist motives of the protestors and another boost to GOP prospects.

    To be sure, the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators have some valid gripes; no society is perfect and any conscious human being has at least a few complaints, valid grievances over something or other. In a democratic republic, bellyaching is properly addressed at the ballot box.

    The illegitimacy of the Occupiers’ complaints is best illustrated . . .
