News analysts keep telling us Obama didn’t say what he said and, rush out to interpret for us what he actually meant. They seem to think we just can’t understand his speech or what he means by not comprehending the nuance in his many speeches.  We know BO is a big government type of guy, believing central government is the answer to all problems. But, when we look at the historical facts, we find people like BO (Progressives) have caused most of the misfortune in the country. Obama was a sub-prime pioneer while working in Chicago. With his landmark lawsuit, Obama and the Progressives pushed banks to lend to people who just couldn’t afford it.

Obama’s lawsuit was one element of a national “anti-redlining” campaign led  by Chicago’s progressive groups, who argued that banks unfairly refused to lend  money to people living within so-called “redlines” around African-American  communities. The campaign was powered by progressives’ moral claim that their  expertise could boost home ownership among the United States’ most disadvantaged  minority, African-Americans. [RELATED:  Obama’s African-American clients got coupons, not cash]

Progressive activists’ ambition instead contributed greatly to a housing  bubble that burst in 2007, crashed the nation’s economy in 2008, wiped out at  least $4 trillion in equity, kept unemployment above 8 percent for four years,  and damaged the intended beneficiaries of looser mortgage lending standards.

But, he isn’t done. The meddling in the mortgage loan industry is just beginning again. He needs four more years to cause further damage to the economy with policies that put us in this mess in the first place.

For example, Obama is pushing a proposal that would allow many homeowners to  refinance their risky mortgages at a lower interest rate. That could help the  homeowners, but it could also leave taxpayers with expensive but worthless debt,  she said, if inflation rises or the economy stalls.

Obama is also using federal financial power to pump up lending to poor areas  via the Federal Housing Administration.

“They’re making a lot of loans … to people with 640, 630, 620 [credit]  scores” who have a 25 percent chance of foreclosing, said Pinto.

Chicago is getting some of those bad federal loans, including via Latino  mortgage sellers who fraudulently portray several family members’ earnings as  income from one or two jobs, said Byas. “It is still happening today… I see  Latinos signing up loans for Latinos, and they can’t afford it.”

Additionally, Obama is using his regulatory power to boost the “regulatory  equity movement” that tries to tax the suburbs to aid poor cities, said Stanley  Kurtz, author of the new book, “Spreading the Wealth.”

“These are policies that Obama generally keeps under the radar… so they don’t  receive too much scrutiny,” said Kurtz, whose book shows how Obama is boosting  the controversial movement.

Even as he is repeating and extending the top-down policies that created the  disaster, Obama is working hard to blame the banks, Wall Street and the GOP for  the damage he and other progressives caused.

Looks as if “Empty Chair Day” was a success. Wall Street Journal, Politico and, the Hill all had articles referring to it, even if a couple were somewhat grudgingly admiring of the fun at BO’s expense. Kudos to everyone who took part.

But the Hill’s “making lemonade out of lemons” interpretation of the National Empty Chair Day was not a perspective shared by the many conservatives who enjoyed the fun of their social media victory that once again put the Obama campaign on the defensive.

 Can it get any better? How’s that for “nuance”?

open thread….


  1. MO will also be much more nuanced at the DNC opening. She will not go off teleprompter….might make her look “aggrieved”… LOL 😀

    • Carole

      As usual the dress was horrible and the hair (wig) looked greasy/oily. The dress was an odd choice because the design looked awful and cheap in photo ops.

  2. “Michelle Obama reveals President will delay arrival at DNC to take children to first day of school… and admits she has ‘no idea’ what to wear for her keynote DNC speech tonight”–admits-idea-wear-DNC-speech.html#ixzz25Vidxpbz

    • srdem65

      What a load of hooey. Really? how many fathers, Black or White or Asian, take their teenage daughters to school on the first day. I don’t know why she says these things other than she really thinks that ordinary people talk like that and she wants people to like her. Or something.

      • 😀 …mine would “die of embarrassment”…..

    • LOL, I was just going to post this link too 😀 Gee, I wonder how this makes kids feel whose Dads are in a war zone ? Doing real Daddy Duty. Michelle is such a crock of cow-pie, and they try and convince us the Romneys are out of touch.

      • Funny, BO flew into Norfolk this morning to give a speech. Bet he passed his daddy duty on to grandma.

        • Uh-oh makes MO look like a fibber….no way, the SS will accompany them both to school…bet on it…

        • Carole

          Granny was probably to busy making Romney voodoo dolls sticking pins in them. I bet it was a White House staffer that took the 2 WONS to school.

  3. Of course she knows what she is going to wear. She has had that outfit picked out since she knew she was giving a speech. UGH!!! I can’t stand it when she tries to sound like “many women” who “have no idea what to wear”. That and everything else. These two make me sick!

    • srdem65

      Me, too.

    • What are we paying her assistants for? Butt, this tells me she doesn’t let anyone give her proper attire advice for anything. Hope she wears that kids choice awards outfit 😉

    • Anon

      Probably whatever nightmare she ends up wearing was decided for her months ago.

      • Something ill-fitting, with a hint of bermuda triangle and a painted-on bosom.

    • An “incomplete”……really? ……REALLY?

  4. A warm welcome to our viewers from Croatia…. 🙂

    • Makes you feel like an international journalist, huh? Chances are that was the country of orgin of that spam ending up in your filter 😀

      • No, makes me feel a cordial welcome to anyone coming here is a good thing….
        {{guffaw}} “international journalist” {{guffaw}} 😀

        • srdem65

          Don’t belittle yourself or be too modest when you’re doing a great job.
          I always try to remember that what I write or express on the internet lives forever and travels the whole universe. Yes. It. Does.

          Sometimes it just feels like friends talking it over or sharing things, but in reality what we say is OUT THERE, (play theme from StarTrek), Hail, aliens!

          • Struck me funny! 😀

    • GMTA ! Ya beat me again. I love the Daily Mail.

      Planning an outdoor summer event on the East Coast is always prone to thunderstorms, unsettled weather and the occasional tropical storm/hurricane. 30% chance of rain is laughable to cancel an event. At least the GOP planned their party indoors.

      • Didn’t mean to scoop you again. Great minds… 😉

    • 20,000? LOL 😀 Looks like that begging thing didn’t work so well for them… 😀

  5. Keep in mind that the Duffleblog is the Onion of the military…. 😀

    “The honorary beret comes in recognition of the President’s decisive role in covert operations throughout the world during his term — including the killing of Osama bin Laden last year in Pakistan, and his combat action in Afghanistan months ago”

  6. HAH!!
    “Yesterday (August 30) Joseph Alutto, the executive vice president and provost at Ohio State University, issued a message to the whole OSU faculty yesterday saying that the University “must make absolutely certain that Ohio State does not engage in partisan political activities. This includes inviting political organizers into our classrooms.”

    • srdem65

      I always knew the people of Ohio were sensible, down to earth and most of all, fair.

      • I believe that is the case too.

  7. BO gets “misty” when MO gives a big speech…. 😉

    “Now I know that whatever I say here today is going to be at best a distant second to the speech you will hear tonight from the star of the Obama family, Michelle Obama,” he told a crowd at Norfolk State University’s Madison Hall Quad. .

    Of the convention, he said: “This is just like a relay and you start off with the fastest person. So I’m going to be at home and I’m going to be watching it with our girls. And I am going to try not to let them see their daddy cry because when Michelle starts talking, I start getting all misty. But I’m looking forward to being in Charlotte myself, I’ll go down there tomorrow.”

    • srdem65

      There is only one woman in the world who could make or break his presidency and she’s in China, thousands of miles away from the U.S. Hillary Clinton.

      If she was the one to introduce Obama, the convention would go wild.

      • Well….they haven’t vetted B Clinton’s speech…. could end up a big nightmare for BO

        • srdem65

          I just KNOW he’s going to talk about himself. He’s going to be subtle and sneaky but get a couple of digs in the speech. His goal; Obama a one term, then Romney screws up and gives Hillary a shot at the WhiteHouse.
          He knows Obama is not uup for the job and he will tarnish the Dem party more (if that’s even possible) making it hard for the Clintons to get back where he thinks they belong.

          • BO is running on Clinton’s record…soooo….

  8. Carole

    I read in the paper this morning that Obama will just go along with his agenda from his first term such as enironmental/educational issues. He will continue to implement his healthcare bill, Get the military out of Afghanistan by 2014, and raise taxes on the rich. Same old, same old. Nothing new, just the same old big government ideology.

  9. Carole

    I am posting this from MOTUS so you can see Moo’s dress up close. It amazes me that the Dems would allow her to do DNC in a dress that not only looks ill fitting, but has a slit up the front, a weird pattern and shoes that make absolutely no sense with the dress.

    • srdem65

      It looks like a wrap dress made for someone with a smaller butt. Fabric goes a certain way.
      Or she could just be dying to show off her hoo-ha to anyone who might want to take a look.

  10. Do not miss Thomas Sowell’s article today…. very nuanced
    […]As Professor Richard Epstein of the University of Chicago Law School has pointed out, Obama made no effort to take part in the marketplace of ideas with other faculty members when he was teaching a law course there. What would be the point, if he already knew the truth and knew that they were wrong?[…]

  11. Not going well for BO at the DNC….

    “On Tuesday, a group of more than 100 protesters shouting “Obama is a traitor” temporarily shut down official bus service that ferries around delegates at the Democratic National Convention. The protesters, some of whom were lying down in the street, were surrounded by Charlotte police, who used their bicycles to build a barrier around the group.”–politics.html

  12. srdem65

    Just when you think you’ve seen it all and the Dems can’t be anymore disgusting;

  13. domanii

    I’ve got my headset ready for the week. My husband who’s never cared for politics has decided he’s just gotta listen to the dems to see what kind of stupid stuff they come up with. Once he gets mad at someone he can’t stop talking, lol, so I’ve got my music ready to listen too.

  14. Pardon me, ladies, but Sheila Jackson-Lee has lost her damn mind.

    • She must have left it on Mars with the flag planted there by the US astronauts….LOL 😀

  15. Found in my junk mail… GAK!!

    Lynn —

    Tonight I’ll take the stage in Charlotte to talk about why my husband — and our president — is the right man for the job.

    Twenty-three years ago, I fell in love with Barack because of his passion, sense of purpose, and his determination to make life better for other people. It’s just who he is — and it’s who he continues to be every day in the White House.

    And for these next two months, we’ve got to give it everything we’ve got so that we have the chance to finish what we started.

    Already this week, folks have chipped in more than 120,000 grassroots donations to help build this organization. That’s just incredible.

    So let’s see how many people we can get to chip in by the end of this convention. If you think Barack’s the right man for the job, please show your support with a donation of $3 or more today:



    • srdem65

      That is not the speech she planned to give at the convention. She’s only following MrsRomney’s speech. We’re going to hear how their love and children are the best ever.

      She’ll be talking about FirstGranny too. The rest of the Obama family didn’t get their welfare check soon enough to go to the convention.

  16. Rahm said all the nice things about change…auto bailout, mortgages saved, etc;….he forgot to mention the 25 billion taxpayers will never see from the auto bailout, the fact that investors were cut out and unions were the real winners, the 42% of 800 billion stimulus that never went to roads and highways, and the problems the Progs created in the housing meltdown. He also didn’t mention the Volt production line will be shut down for a month due to lagging sales. That’s some damned change ….. 😦

  17. That was torture…all every speaker talked about was government and what it can do for you. Not one word about individual creativity or businesses. From Sebelius to Castro to MO, all about big government and spending (what they call “investing”) They want much much more spending. GRRRR

    • srdem65

      They have no power if you make it on your own, if you can take care of your own family, how can they tell you how to live?

      I think she said several times how she ‘loves’ him. Could’ve fooled me.
      If they really cared about their children, they would not have tried for four more years in the WhiteHouse, but would have taken their children back to as much private life as possible. Teenage years are not easy and those two girls are never going to be normal if he wins reelection..(gak)

  18. Carole

    Today I heard a reporter on our local KFI station tell of her experiences at the DNC. She said they have evironmental supervisorshat guard the trash bins. You know, cans, plastic bottles go in that bin, paper in another and food stuff in a mosh bin. The reporter said she deliberatly puts wrong things in the bins so that a supervisor comes running to scold her for her naughtiness. One supervisor told her she took the job because she didn’t need training or education for the position.

    Then she reported that some of the big hotels were being plagued with bed bugs and convention goers were being bitten. Then people were complaining that their silk or linen suits and outfits were being ruined by the rain.

    The funniest part was when Veragosa, the mayor of LA, who is the main chairman of the DNC tried to introduce the first person. He repeated himself, stuttered, mispronounced the person’s name and barely could say the word convention. Talk about a moron, Veragosa cannot even give a decent interview on TV or radio. Clint Eastwood makes Veragosa look like a total zero.

    I was laughing so hard, that when I got out of my SUV to mail some bills, the lady getting out of her car next tro me looked at me like I was a crazy person. The whole talk show was just hilarious.

  19. Harping on bin Laden was a little over the top. Does anyone really think that will get BO re-elected? The speakers acted as if he was in the compound with the SEALs. From what I’ve garnered, Clinton had to convince him to make the call. As for the Iraq war, that agreement to move out our troops was signed before Bush left office. BO had nothing much to do with that one. Just followed what was already signed.–election.html

  20. Brainwashing…..
    Government is the only thing that ties us together

  21. MO got teary eyed when thinking she might have to give up all her traveling perks and taxpayer parties.
    She’s such a homebody… riiiiight!

    • LOL, haven’t we heard this speech before? Of course, it’s not fair to compare it to Ann Romney’s who actually has a husband with accomplishments in his personal and professional life.

      • MO’s speech was very much the same drivel she’s said before. It was mostly I, me, mine.

  22. “In her speech, Mrs Obama attempted to move the political debate away from the economy and onto her husband’s personal qualities as Republican’s rounded on the President after he stated he would give himself a mark of ‘incomplete’ on the economy.

    ‘The First Lady is uniquely positioned to talk about the President, not just as a leader but also as a husband, a father and a friend and really talk about the values and character that motivate his choices,’ a Democratic official said.”

    And we are in the unique position of having been “ruled” by executive order since 2008. And being strangled by EPA laws and over regulation.

  23. CNN fact checks the claim of 4.5 million jobs added….results less than stellar

    “The number Castro cites is an accurate description of the growth of private-sector jobs since January 2010, when the long, steep slide in employment finally hit bottom. But while a total of 4.5 million jobs sounds great, it’s not the whole picture. [snip]
    While that is indeed a gain of 4.5 million, it’s only a net gain of 300,000 over the course of the Obama administration to date. The private jobs figure stood at 111 million in January 2009, the month Obama took office.”

  24. Nuance…the DNC Convention

  25. Remember this while the Dems speak glowingly of BO….we built that! Government bailed it out with OUR money…
    “GM is once again flirting with bankruptcy despite massive government purchases propping up its sales figures. GM stock is rock-bottom. Losses continue to be revised in the wrong direction. According to The Detroit News, “The Treasury Department says in a new report the government expects to lose more than $25 billion on the $85 billion auto bailout. That’s 15 percent higher than its previous forecast.””

  26. I agree with Krauthammer…
    “She told the story of a Gandhi. And considering the way he’s conducted himself in the presidency and particularly in the campaign, with ruthlessness and determination and drive, it’s not quite a plausible story…. I’m sure it was a great speech but I didn’t buy a line of it.”

  27. Ha, ha, ha…DNC just announced that the outdoor arena has been scratched due to the weather (snicker). BO will speak to 20,000 indoors. What will happen to the 54,000 that won’t get to see him?

    • LOL 😀 ….the unions didn’t bus them in!
      No way could he fill the “Bank of America” stadium. Besides the “optics” are really bad…. 😀

    • Looks like the DNC won the “empty chair” competition after all… ROFLMAO!!

      • srdem65

        oh, snap! good one.

        • 😀

  28. Stupak regrets….he believed the liar in the WH?

  29. “Middle Class vs. the 1%: It’s About to Get Really Ugly”

    • “Forward”….another word for class warfare in the Dem lexicon.

  30. “The Republicans had Clint Eastwood, for better or for worse. The Democrats are aiming to counterprogram with a prime-time trio of Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Kerry Washington, CNN reports.”–politics.html

    • OMG….what a triumvirate…. LOL :D…. the “real” people

      • Is Kerry Washington allowed to be at the convention when BO is there? Didn’t MO ban her from Big White because she was a bit overzealous in her support for the POTUS?

        And wasn’t it proven that Scarlett Johansen didn’t even vote in the last election? Great choice of speakers.

  31. You didn’t fill that!! LMAO
    “I have a headline. I have a headline if anybody wants to use it on Thursday night. If they move the speech, if they move Thursday night’s proceedings from outdoors to indoors, the headline is: You Didn’t Fill That! And then show a picture of Panther Stadium/Bank of America Stadium. You Didn’t Fill That!”

  32. DNC Platform gets revised….Jerusalem is once again the Capitol of Israel and ….they found GOD. TA DA!

    • srdem65

      They weren’t all in favor of this. Every time I think the Dems can’t go any lower..there it is.

      • from what I gather BO intervened to get it changed….whether the delegates liked it or not wasn’t a consideration.

        • So was he for it before he wa against it? Or was he against it before he was for it? The mind boggles.

    • In listening to the voice vote, it sure sounded like the nays were much louder than the ayes. Lots of loud boos afterward.

      • srdem65

        I watched the video of the vote on CNN, these people didn’t want to add any reference to God or to talk about Israel.
        Maybe it is a good thing to avoid meeting outdoors…lightning could strike.
        And it should. God-less, selfish, baby-killing perverts. There I said it.

        • Maybe the Bank of America stadium didn’t have the right optics…they did lay off 30,000 American workers and shipped the jobs to the Phillipines… ????

          “God-less, selfish, baby-killing perverts.”
          Hard to believe we were once part of the mess the Dems have become. I don’t recognize the Democrats anymore.

      • YEP,

  33. Uh-oh, no end run around Congress on this law…. BO and the Dems having a really bad week. Like it was planned…or sumthin
    […]The bipartisan Government Accountability Office flagged the administration’s end run around Congress in its July memo announcing changes to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) act, aka “welfare reform.”

    The GAO said that the White House needs to give Congress the chance to block its plan that permits states to tweak the work requirements that needy families must satisfy in order to receive government assistance under the program.

    The official word came in the form of a letter to lawmakers from GAO’s general counsel, Lynn H. Gibson, who wrote that the directive “must be submitted to Congress and the comptroller general before taking effect.”[…]

    • srdem65

      awww. And here BO thought he could do anything. awww.

    According to Marjorie Orr, a respected astrologer, Michelle’s chart doesn’t look too happy on election day:

    Michelle Obama – battling on  From: Marjorie. (05 Sep 2012 10:51): 
    Michelle Obama was wheeled out to breathe enthusiasm into the Democratic Convention which she seems to have done successfully. But she is not looking at all happy at the Election. Tr Saturn is conjunct her Solar Arc Pluto with both in square to her Mars which looks very blocked, stuck and aggravating. She also has tr Pluto trine her Uranus late December into January 2013 which indicates a major change of direction.
    Admittedly she does have the upbeat tr Pluto sextile Mars/Jupiter now and in November which is mildly successful but that may be rather squelched by these other very difficult influences.

  35. DLeigh

    It continues to amaze me how many unnecessary screw ups just keep adding to the pile from this administration, its worker bees to the DNC. LIttle drops of stupid made everyday by people who just do what they vision without practical sense . They can’t even do an add God back to their platform fix it without screwing it up, let alone why they thought it a good idea not to include Him in the first place. OMG!
