There are none so blind…

How can anyone be so tied to an ideology? How can anyone be so into political gain they hide behind lies and obfuscation? Does the ‘D’ or the ‘R’ behind someone’s name have to mean so much? If those letters were eliminated from the political lexicon Romney would win in a landslide.

Watching the Veep debate was painful. Joey B spent most of his time doing his best to keep Ryan from finishing his statements. The left was crowing with glee over Biden’s mugging and rudeness to both his opponent and the debate moderator. Throwing red meat to the left was obvious but, there was another reason for this over arching ego trip Biden took. It’s called fear and desperation. The left resorts to this sort of tactic when they know they’re losing the argument. They become rude, obnoxious, and loud to cover their fear of losing the argument. We all know people like this, especially those of us who are former democrats.  When they have nothing left, they resort to this tactic. Reasonable people usually react by saying “fine” and dropping the subject at hand. That’s when ‘victory’ is declared by the leftist with a self satisfied smug attitude.  When the leftists run out of ideas this is the tactic they always resort to using. Reasonable people are now considered “far right extremists”, whether they be center left or center right. This will be the left’s downfall. You can’t call the majority the ‘enemy’ and win.

Buried in the Dodd-Frank Bill was a big wet kiss to the the NY banks.  In other words, bailouts in perpetuity. Richard Fisher, head of the Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas had this to say concerning the “too big to fail” in Dodd-Frank; from the Washington Post

The problems posed by “supersized and hypercomplex banks” may, Fisher says,
require anti-obesity policies equivalent to “irreversible lap-band or gastric
bypass surgery.” The land of TBTFs is “a perverse financial Lake Wobegon” where
all crises are “exceptional,” justifying “unique” solutions that are the same —
meaning bailouts. This incurs “the wrath of ordinary citizens and smaller
entities that resent this favorable treatment, and we plant the seeds of social
unrest.”

The five largest institutions now hold 61% of commercial banking assets.

“For all its bluster, Dodd-Frank leaves TBTF entrenched. . . . In fact, the financial crisis increased concentration because some TBTF institutions acquired the assets of other troubled TBTF institutions. The TBTF survivors of the financial crisis look a lot like they did in 2008. They maintain corporate cultures based on the short-term incentives of fees and bonuses derived from increased oligopoly power.”

This is why Romney wants to repeal Dodd-Frank, to save the economy from another big crash if one or more of these banks fail again. We’re on the hook for the benefit of the few, he wants to take us off the hook for the benefit of all.

Obama is back at it. He still can’t stop talking about the first debate with Romney. He still believes he won. All you have to do is read the transcripts to know it’s true. He’s still stroking his own ego which has been pretty bruised. Obama: If people read transcript, they’ll think I won last debate.  He just can’t let it go, can he?

President Obama told a Miami radio host yesterday that he never thought, during last week’s presidential debate, that Mitt Romney got the better of him.

“That’s not actually how I thought about it,” Obama said on the Michael YO! Show when asked if there was a moment when he knew he was losing last week. “I do think that on television it was clear that I was being too restrained when Mr. Romney was telling his tall tales. But the truth is, when you read the transcript, everything I said was true and a lot of what he said was not.”

Obama not only has a major problem with losing but, his campaign has become petty and smarmy. When you have nothing to run on villify your opponent and make them the ‘enemy’. Harry Truman said “The buck stops here”,  Obama says ‘The buck stops everywhere else but here’. He takes no responsibility for any of his decisions, failure, or the divisivness of his campaign. It’s time to elect a President who is willing to shoulder the responsibility of the office and who won’t blame us, like Obama does for his  failure as President. People, including Obama, make mistakes. We Americans are a forgiving lot if there are changes made once those mistakes are obvious. Obama is not willing to admit his mistakes and doubles down to keep pushing a failed agenda, both domestic and foreign. Our economy is not growing, food, gas, and energy costs are rising making Americans poorer in the long run. This has to change for the sake of our country and for all our citizens.  Obama tossed all of us under the bus, it’s time to let him go.

  1. Ex-CIA chief slams Biden for throwing U.S. spies under the bus during debate by ‘blaming those who put their lives on the line’ for Benghazi debacle

    Like I’ve said, everyone is under the bus now.

      How hard they tried to make the attack America’s fault because we have “free speech”. Remember how they tried to silence FOXnews? Rush Limbaugh? They even wanted the FCC to pull their license at one time. Remember the foo-faa about FOX reporter being allowed to sit in the front row at the WhiteHouse press briefings, too?

      When the StateDepartment talked to the press about this, they left out FOXnews. This all comes from the top, MrsClinton and MrObama. They want this to just go away, they don’t want to talk about the failures.

      They made sure that SusanRice lost all credibility and made her a pimp for the WhiteHouse.
      I almost (almost) feel sorry for her, she seems very sincere.

      One thing an administration can’t do is trash the permanent and invisible govenment employees who devote their entire lives on keeping the govenment going. To say ‘they know where all the bodies are buried” is not just a saying, the really do know and they’re not going to take the heat for what they see are nincompoops sitting int the WhiteHouse.

      • I have never seen such a government blame game in all my life. The current administration never finds fault in itself, not ever, nor will admit mistakes have been made. They just keep lying….no way can that be called good governing. The question is not who is under the bus this time but, who haven’t they tossed under the bus?….shorter list.

    Listening to Candy Crowley on CNN this morning; BobGibbs smearing MrRomney by claiming he’s lying about his agenda. She asked about the attack in Libya and got nowhere, but chuckled that she never gets an answer. And left it at that. What are these liberals afraid of, why are they afraid to do their dang job?

    The MSM will trash MrR for saying this or that about his agenda, but NO ONE asks MrO about his plan for the future other than his giving money to the unions and spending money on ‘green’ energy.

    If MrO changes his mind on gay marriage, he’s “evolved”. If MrR changes his mind on an issue, he “flip-flopped”.

    I’m just sick of the double standard and find is so distasteful. MrR isn’t a magician, isn’t a saint, and we all know who MrO is and isn’t. Be straight with us, we can handle the truth.

    • The left is sooooo embarrassing…and embarrasses themselves…
      BO plans on using public lands for his ‘green energy’ projects if elected…solar panels as far as the eye can see and loads and loads of wind turbines…how awful for us.

  3. Doubling down is an Obama hallmark…fail for subsidized wind energy..Danish company got 50 million…800 workers got pink slips with more to come.

    “yet another green energy company that received wasteful stimulus funds and does not even have anything to show for it.

    According to Reuters, Vestas, the wind turbine maker, saw its order intake go down by 24 percent during the first half of the year.

    “The U.S. wind industry has slowed, largely due to the uncertainty surrounding the Federal Production Tax Credit extension,” said Martha Wyrsch, head of Vestas-American Wind Technology, Inc.

    Vestas said without more tax credits and stimulus funds, the company will have trouble competing.

    Vestas executives, according to Reuters, told investors that “it would stop non-profitable projects,” especially in Europe and America, where demand for its products have plummeted.”

  4. ATF Whistleblower fired in Denny’s parking lot….add insult to injury…read it all

  5. Look what the Interior Dept. has planned for all those ‘pristine’ areas they own…fully 1/3 of all land surface belongs to the US Gov…squeezing us into ever tightening urban areas..
    […]
    The Interior Department set aside about 285,000 acres for commercial-scale solar in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah. The federal government will offer incentives for development, help facilitate access to existing or planned electric infrastructure and ease the permitting process in the 17 zones.

    “Energy from sources like wind and solar have doubled since the president took office, and with today’s milestone, we are laying a sustainable foundation to keep expanding our nation’s domestic energy resources,” Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said. …

    The development program approved Friday cuts some up-front costs for developers, as the federal government already has performed National Environmental Policy Act assessments for the sites.

    Did you catch those bits about “offering incentives,” “helping to facilitate,” “ease the permitting process,” and “already performed assessments”? Yes, most generous and munificent of the Interior Department to spend OUR money that way, isn’t it?[…]

      Here’s a list of the areas. The Colorado areas are all raptor breeding regions…including Bald Eagles. Also major migration route for eagles, hawks, geese, cranes, ducks, etc. Right thru the southern San Luis Valley…This so pisses me off…

      • That’s why they waited until Friday to release the news. Part of the Friday dump. Romney has got to win just to stop this!!

      • Oh and it’s also why they have gone after the cattlemen and Indians who use public lands for grazing……the left doesn’t care what it does to suit its agenda…no matter what the consequences are to the people, the land, the wildlife….hope the idiot environmentalists are happy….they helped create this monstrosity of a government.

  7. Speaking of blind….. Muslims protesting ‘age of mockery’….demand Google take down the ‘offensive’ movie-that-isn’t-a-movie from Youtube. They cause their own problems in this area with their ridiculousness.

    […]Barricades were erected in front of Google’s headquarters and a crowd bearing placards with the words “We love our prophet more than our lives” and “Prophet Muhammad is the founder of freedom of speech” had amassed by lunchtime.[…]
