the ‘Second Coming’….

newsweek-cover-e1358620619433Not to worry, you won’t be assailed at the newstand with this ridiculous pronouncement. It looks as if the slobbering love affair of the media isn’t over yet. If the “Second Coming” works out as well as the first 4 years, we will have a 20 trillion dollar deficit by 2017 according to the GAO ( General Accounting Office). Isn’t that great? The poor will suffer more under this second term then they did the first. The middle class will too with all the tax and spend and accounting gimmicks. What is not to appreciate?

In case you want to celebrate rght along with the Preezy, you too can join in the celebratory luncheon. Obama’s Foodorama has the instructions and recipes to re-create the Inaugural Luncheon. That is, if you can afford the ingredients.

INAUGURATION-MO scaryMo’s new wig is taking the media fashionistas by storm. Even Brian Williams had the “breaking news” on his NBC Nightly News program.

“First Lady Michelle Obama turned 49 today. But the big news came as the  First Lady’s office inaugurated a Twitter account and sent out this picture  showing the First Lady’s new bangs. Which Vanity Fair’s website  instantly praised, calling them ‘featherly,’ and tracing their lineage in hair  terms to Brigitte Bardot.”

Bardot? Seriously?Bardot The Today show gushed and drooled as well over MO’s hair and the Preezy ipod playlist. Tamron Hall declared MO “looks hot, very Cleopatra”. If this is any indication of the media coverage for the next 4 years we are really in for a long haul.

Dana Milbank writes in the Washington Post;

Four years ago, hundreds of thousands of people flooded the capital, sleeping on floors and lining the streets so that they could be part of history: the inauguration of the first black president, who had the promise of being a transformational figure that could bring hope and change to a broken political system.

That messiah never came, and a sluggish economic recovery overshadowed his term. Obama was reelected less because he inspired the nation than because he discredited his opponent. Most Americans still think that the country is headed in the wrong direction, and just one in five trust their government to do the right thing….[snip]

On the eve of Obama’s second inaugural, it’s difficult to see anything ahead but a long and tedious slog: not a civil war, mercifully, but a political war of attrition.

Remember, BO has pledged under his “Second Coming”,  “our path is harder” and “our road is longer.”

He also told the public that they “elected me to tell you the truth” not to  “tell you what you wanted to hear,” but then proceeded to hide inconvenient  truths while filling the public’s ears with sweet nothings.

For example, he pledged government help for everyone who could possibly want  or need it, but managed to avoid any mention of the hard truth that the national  debt just topped $16 trillion and entitlements are unsustainable.

He said he’d spend money saved from ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan  on roads, bridges and schools. Even the liberal press wasn’t buying this one. As  the AP pointed out, Obama “laid claim to a peace dividend that doesn’t  exist.”

Obama promised to “take responsible steps” that would “keep the promise of  Social Security.” But he failed to mention that the only options he’s left on  the table are raising taxes or cutting benefits. That may not be what people  want to hear, but it’s the absolute truth.

Rep Marcia Fudge (D-OH is just incensed that 16.5 billion was cut from the Federal Food stamp program.

In a George Washington University panel discussion on poverty hosted by PBS’s Tavis Smiley, Fudge expressed her disappointment with colleagues who voted to cut food stamps by $16.5 billion over the next 10 years.

She declared that anyone who voted to do this is evil and mean. What Fudge refuses to say is Senate and House Democrats voted on those cuts to fund MO’s NoFatKidsBehinds initiative when they controlled both branches of Congress. That includes the Black Caucus she chairs. MO went to the Senate, gave her little speech and Senate Dems and House Dems cut the food programs for the poor.

A bill to provide healthful school lunches for low-income children — a  high-profile project of first lady Michelle Obama — has raised tensions between  the White House and President Barack Obama’s key allies in the House of  Representatives.

Despite heavy lobbying by the  first lady, more than 100 House  Democrats have balked at approving the Senate’s $4.5 billion version of the  nutrition bill because it is funded in part with $2.2 billion in cuts to SNAP,  the federal food stamp program. They want assurances from the Obama  administration that the funding cuts the Senate approved will be restored in the  near future…[snip]

As late as mid-September, House Education and Labor Committee staff had been  holding out hope that the House could find alternative ways to pay for the House  bill. But with time on the legislative calendar quickly running out — and  prospects of a Republican takeover of the House in midterm elections looming — Democrats must move quickly to pass the bill.

Emanuel and members of the president’s legislative affairs team have been  trying to broker a deal to satisfy progressives. Offsetting the cost of the  lunch program with cuts to food stamps was not an ideal approach for the White  House, either; but there are also concerns about the deficit. And the White  House has already made several funding promises to lawmakers, including  assurances to Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) that she would receive agriculture  assistance in exchange for her support for small-business legislation.

Now, in retrospect, Fudge is doing her best to lay it all on the “mean and evil” R-Words. MO gets what she wants, the poor suffer for it. But, the media doesn’t report any of this. After all, MO’s new wig is much more important than the poor and so much more newsworthy. GACK!

So, welcome the new boss….same as the old boss….

Inauguration-MO 3

open thread….


    • I don’t think it suits her, it almost resembles a wool hat pulled low down over her brows, like a hat a serf would wear at a Renaissance Festival, if there were serfs at Renaissance Festivals (all the unfortunate performers I’ve met are, of course, high born and noble.)
      It seems flat and stiff, very acrylic looking, too close to her skull.

    • Well, except for the talent part and Tina being in great shape, and being more attractive………….they could pass for twins LOL 😀

    • Waiting for 2012

      The Worst Lady is just that, and her daughters dress like refugees. And what the HELL is Jill Biden wearing? She’s too stringy and knobby to wear both the dress and the boots. She should get the hairstyle makeover herself. Her hair is too long, dry, and dyed blonde for her age.

      • and the YELLOW….no, no, no….. off the shoulder….no, no, no.
        what was she thinking? 😀

  1. Anon

    I was so hoping to be rid of these people this year.

    • I am soooo hoping the Senate gets upended in 2014….26 seats up for grabs

    • Waiting for 2012

      Tell me about it. I should change my username to “Waiting for 2016”!

  2. We have to hope for their safety, but we can still snark on their weaknesses. 😀

    • I am less worried about their safety than I am mine and my family…….heck, the 6th largest army in the world are the gangs. Just think about that horrifying thought.
      Have to counter all the ridiculous gushing and cooing ……I just don’t see the “amazing” in MO.

  3. Waiting for 2012

    I still contend that the Worst Lady resembles a Neanderthal in drag.

  4. Waiting for 2012

    While we’re at it: I’m so sick and tired of Bamster’s “National Day of Service” crap. How about HIM making it a 4-year term of “National Service” to his country? He should get off his skinny butt to work for US. BTW, as much as I admire MLK, tomorrow, I’m off work–and I am NOT helping the WONS in any shape or form. I plant to curl up with a good book and a mug of cocoa during the snow. Perhaps I’ll listen to Glenn Beck, Rush, et al., and watch Fox News all day, because that’s just the type of sick, twisted conservative Tea Party kook I am. So there!

    • Sounds like a plan…. 😀

      • Lynn I

        Hey, L2!

        • Hey! Back for real?

          • Lynn I

            Out of the country, working in Istanbul for 2 years. I was at motus laughing at you-know-who’s bangs when I found your link. Gaack. My sister-in-law has a wig like hers, although I have to say, mo’s actually looks better. Saw some pictures of the pre-inauguration freak show. Hi to AM!

            • Istanbul…sounds fascinating. And a big Hi back atcha!

            • Istanbul? What a colorful career you have going. How’s that son of yours?

              • Lynn I

                L2 & AM – i’m glad you started a new topic so this will be semi-private. I miss you both, and glad I found you again. The job, we get to take short-term assignments, sometimes you get lucky and no-one else wants to go where you want to – they all want to go to the UK or Germany. Istanbul is magnificent, and is now my favorite city in the world. 16th-century mosques and palaces beside ultramodern malls, better than anything in DC or NY. The Golden Horn at sunset, omg. Children are well and coming to visit in the summer, thank you. My son spent a semester here and in Greece when he was an undergrad. When you find the time:

    I think this cult forming for BO to be disturbing and sickening, By comparing him to OurLord, JesusChrist is ….I don’t have the words. I don’t recall any man being treated in such a way before.

    • I know that some people call him “Chicago Jesus” in jest, but I truly despise those who think he is the new Messiah. And I’m worried about a Constitutional Amendment granting him another term.

      • srdem65

        Not to worry. A constitutional amendment would take a majority of the states to approve it and it would take years to accomplish, if at all.
        Remember the ERA? the Equal Rights Amendment? Everybody was fighting over it and it never went anywhere. My goodness, imagine trying to push a “president for life, or whatever” on to the public.

  6. Lynn I

    Waiting: Ha. Agree.

    • My concern is not the poster, it is the people who would buy it.

      • srdem65

        There are people who feel that way, that Obama is their “saviour”; not from Heaven, but from the perils of lfe on earth. They think their cellphone came from Obama’s stash, their very food comes from his goodness, and he does talk like he cares about everyone. It’s sad, but true.

        What bothers me is that his supporters who are really suffering from his policies, agenda and lack of any experience, still approve of what he’s doing. We don’t have to be racists or haters to disapprove of irresponsible spending, or resent the federal government for taking over our personal health care. In this time of high unemployment, higher taxes, inflation; we’d be angry at any President who spent more time on the golf course or on a posh vacation than he did in the WhiteHouse.

      • calistressthemistress probably will…. LOL 😀
        Mindless minions who care zero for any facts laid out to support the truth….

        • Hey, now! You’re talking about my mother! Too bad you are correct in everything you say. She was brought up hand fed by FDR, dropped me on the floor when Kennedy was shot, and praises Obama to the most high. She truly believes sheep go to heaven. I cannot explain to her that she’s stolen money from her grandchildren, her answer is to pray to God and hope for the best. She has no idea that God gave us hands to do things for ourselves! She’s suffering greatly under this regime, and it is a regime, and she just accepts the heavier yoke on her shoulders, as if she deserves it.
          Believe me it’s not a race issue, it’s a character issue. I’d like to play golf all day, too, but if I don’t work, I’d lose myself and my mind.
          (Maybe this is what’s going on, someone with too much idle time swinging clubs is losing it.)

          • Correction- Cal’s not my mother, but my mother thinks that way- my mother would never comment on a blog or even debate politics. When asked why she believes the way she does, she just sighs and says, “Oh well, it’s all for the best.” and falls asleep on the couch, waiting for that “Better day” that’s never coming.

  7. After seeing an overhead shot of MO’s entrance at the inaug today I couldn’t help but notice how white the “skin” seemed in the parted hair. Surely they could have dyed it to match her natural skin tone ? My part isn’t that light and I’m a pasty Irish girl. 😀

    • srdem65

      I noticed that too. For her sake, I hope it is a wig, then she won’t have to wait 6 months for her ‘bangs’ to grow out.

    • Yep, can’t believe the sycophants and their drooling over a wig.

  8. Luncheon running late….Dems have a tendency to talk waaaay too much. One of their biggest faults….all talk, no budget, no tort reform, nothing for the last four years except crippling the economy with overreach.

    • srdem65

      I didn’t watch the whole thing, didn’t hear BO’s speech. But off and on watched the pomp and now I’m watching the parade. The parade in the dark. tsk tsk.

      I got all choked up watching the military groups, then the marching bands, then the native dancers, gee. I’m just a big softie for all that.
      I’m so proud to be an American.

      • Waiting for 2012

        I refused to wathc any of it, nor the press covergae (apart from some delicious yahoo comments, which I contributed to!). I watched JTV (Jewelry Television) all day. They’ve having their gorgeous garnet jewelry push for Valentine’s Day. 🙂

  9. Our FLOTUS is so low-class. Four years in The White House and she still hasn’t learned that there is always a camera pointed in her direction. Eye rolling, scowling, elbows on the table- no manners whatsoever.

    • Well, it opens a window on the lack of bipartisanship, and what party is responsible for the inability for compromise. If the wife does this in public, imagine what the couple do when the cameras aren’t rolling.

    • Busted!!

    • I watched a little…off and on. I saw Wee Won One tweeting from the parade review stand…as the Preezy chomped on his chewing gum while saluting the troops. Ugh….

      • Nicorette…. since he ‘quit’ he has to do something for the craving

  10. This is funny.

    “Obama supporters served unglamorous feast of Cheez-Its, peanuts and pretzels at glitzy inauguration party”

    • LOL 😀 …. did they expect lobster and bison?

      • I know! Haha! The peasants thought they were going to have the same venue as the royalty! Soon they’ll be singing quartets about not having enough bread.
        The least the organizers could have done was rig some appetizers featuring some of the foods His Highness was having, to help create a pseudo commradery.

    • Well…..I am certainly not voting for “some old white guy”. 😀
      those guys are a threat to our way of life. /

  11. Not to worry, Biden will be in ‘assisted living’ by ’16, he probably should be there now.

  12. Kirsten Powers said that the main reason that President Obama doesn’t want to call on Fox News at his press conferences is “he doesn’t want to be embarrassed.”
    He beclowns himself every single day….. LOL 😀

    MrsO’s wardrobe choices yesterday were good and bad; the coat ensemble was classic until she put on the boob belt, the dress was perfect until she topped it with Sasha’s sweater, and the gown was beautiful but her hair is a disaster. She never fails to take something good, put her own spin on it and ruin it.
    The jewels on the dress were appropriate, as were the mulitple diamond bracelets she wore on her left arm. They looked like the ‘chocolate’ diamonds.
    And ….ta da…..she actually wore matching shoes with the gown…gasp…matchy-matchy..the horrors.

    • The coat ensemble was necktie material….$10,000 silk…. not too ostentatious….

    • Perhaps she figured out just how much damage her fawning did to her career. Network dying, magazine sales way down, tv show over, adoration of millions of American women now nonexistant. O is unpopular because of BO and MO.

    • BTW, check out the older pics of MO in the article. She has come a long way in four years. Hardly recognized her. The only constant is the scowl.

    • A little proper support goes a long way. It seems the Ms. Biden has never heard of proper underthings. When one is stoop shouldered, it’s best that one not wear a gown that has a hoodie thing going on down the back. She stands as if she’s on a camping trip. It’s okay to be a little graceful.

    I think Moo looked like a passe TV sitcom character at the inaugural, The red dress just did not fit her appropriately and all the other outfits were silly for a First Lady at an important event like the swearing in and inaugural ball. She did not fail to stuff her mouth and look like a cow eating her cud. Moo is just socially and intellectually immature.
