A year after claiming the economy as his own, Obama points finger

leave a comment »

President Obama this summer has repeatedly blamed George W. Bush for the nation’s economic woes, a year after he took ownership of the economy and criticized those who “carp and gripe.”

During a July 14, 2009, address in Warren, Mich., Obama said, “Now, my administration has a job to do, as well, and that job is to get this economy back on its feet. That’s my job.

And it’s a job I gladly accept. I love these folks who helped get us in this mess and then suddenly say, ‘Well, this is Obama’s economy.’ That’s fine. Give it to me. My job is to solve problems, not to stand on the sidelines and carp and gripe.”

Obama Job Approval continues to drop

leave a comment »

More Americans disapprove (37%) than approve (20%) of Barack Obama’s recent comments concerning the planned construction of a mosque near the World Trade Center site in New York City, but 4 in 10 do not have an opinion.

Republicans are paying closer attention to the matter than are Democrats or independents.

Obama’s New Politics of Fear

with one comment

The president hit the campaign trail, abandoning his pledge of a post-partisan politics and trashing the GOP. Mark McKinnon on why it’s not working.

“It is a little odd getting lectures on sobriety from folks that spent like drunken sailors,” President Barack Obama said of Republicans Thursday while campaigning for Senate candidate Robin Carnahan (D-MO).

An interesting choice of words for a president whose current budget is expected to add an astounding $10 trillion to the national debt in the next decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

First Lady’s Trip to Spain Draws Criticism

leave a comment »

A quiet holiday in a lavish Mediterranean retreat for the first lady and her daughter has turned into a bit of a headache for a White House trying to battle bad economic news at home.

Michelle Obama took her younger daughter, Sasha, to southern Spain this week for a mother-daughter getaway. But when you are married to the president, it has a way of becoming a mother-daughter-Secret-Service getaway that invariably sweeps into town, takes over much of a pricey hotel and leaves the taxpayers with a hefty bill.

Obama must break his tax promise

leave a comment »

Between now and the November elections, the biggest political fight in the US is likely to be about taxes. Unless Congress acts, big tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003 during George Bush’s presidency will expire at the end of the year.

With the recovery faltering, Republicans and Democrats understand that reversing all of the cuts so soon is a bad idea, but this is where their agreement stops.

In reality Obama has already broken his tax promise. Federal taxes have doubled on many items and services already.

That “Not one penny” of tax promise was broken within his first year as President.

Republicans are running against Obama, Democrats are running from him

leave a comment »

Roy Blunt, Republican candidate for Senator in Missouri, has officially produced the season’s first campaign commercial that links his opponent to Obama.

“Missourians have a clear choice in this election,” it says. “If they want a
rubberstamp for the liberal policies of Nancy Pelosi, Harry
Reid and Barack Obama, they should support Robin Carnahan. But if
they want someone who will fight for Missouri families and jobs, they 
ought to support Roy Blunt.”
