Obama: ‘Everybody’s Getting a Fair Share’

‘Everybody’s Getting a Fair Share’

In President Obama’s closing statement at last night’s debate, he seemed to make a remarkable slip. “All those things are designed to make sure that the American people, their genius, their grit, their determination, is — is channeled and — and they have an opportunity to succeed. And everybody’s getting a fair shot. And everybody’s getting a fair share,”

“I resent when they talk about families like mine that I grew up in. I resent the fact that they think we’re talking about envy: it’s job envy, it’s wealthy envy; that we don’t dream,”

“My mother believed and my father believed that if I wanted to be president of the United States, that I could be, I could be vice president! My mother and father believed that if my brother or sister wanted to be a millionaire, they could be a millionaire! My mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams!

“They don’t get us! They don’t get who we are!”

Really Joe? I don’t get you… You have had years of Senate high dollar checks sent your way, Sounds like you can piss away cash at a spectacular rate… Hell, I know drunken sailors that are worth more than you!

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced that White House legal counsel has concluded no White House staff engaged in any “misconduct” in Cartagena.

“The decision to conduct a review here, internally, was simply done out of due diligence,” Carney said. “There is no indication of any misconduct by any member of the White House advance team or staff.”

He added that “there have been no specific, credible allegations of misconduct by anyone on the White House advance team or White House staff.”

Carney refused to give any details on the investigation, such as whether the investigation included checking hotel records in Colombia or interviewing the White House advance team that went to Cartagena.

Ahh, yea… Isn’t this kinda like my mom saying I didn’t dump in the bidet, ‘cuz you really know that I did…

Obama campaign rolls out Square mobile fundraising platform
The Obama reelection campaign is providing headquarters staff, field organizers and volunteers the ability to take campaign donations with their mobile phones.

Campaign personnel are being issued Square mobile credit card readers, allowing them to process donations with their iPhone or Android phones, a campaign official tells POLITICO. The rollout will happen nationwide, and involve staff at all levels.

The technology is a boon for canvassers and other field staff — potentially saving the campaign hundreds of hours of time processing donations, and giving field staff enormous flexibility. Moreover, it’s another good example of the power of mobile technology to streamline and automate otherwise mundane — but nevertheless important — campaign tasks.

Square has been used by a handful of local political campaigns, but the Obama campaign’s adoption is the first national political adoption of the technology.

Taxpayers Rank Behind Solyndra Investors Under Obama’s Refinancing Deal

By William McQuillen – Sep 3, 2011 1:09 PM E

"...then we borrow $385 large from the people..."

The Obama administration let $385 million in taxpayer support for Solyndra Inc. take a back seat to funds from new investors in an unsuccessful effort to keep the solar-panel manufacturer operating.

The Energy Department decided the January refinancing represented the “highest probable net benefit” for the government, according to a government document obtained by Bloomberg News. Investors provided the company $75 million that became senior debt, ahead of all but $150 million of the federal government’s stake.

Solyndra said on Aug. 31 that it will file for bankruptcy reorganization next week in Wilmington,Delaware. The administration’s agreement to subordinate the government aid to new investment may add fuel to criticism by Republicans who have said President Barack Obama spent too much money pushing a favored company in the name of green energy.

the government had already advanced $460 million in loan guarantees and decided to continue investing in an effort to fend off threatened bankruptcy.

Here we go kiddies, it’s Obama at his campaigny-best!

Perhaps the president’s Republican critics think they are scoring a major hit when they tag Obama’s speech to the joint session of Congress as a “campaign speech”. But the White House has the consolation that the speech was just that: a rousing, bold, base-pleasing, Republican-baiting collection of mostly pleasant-sounding policy proposals that he is under little pressure to actually enact. In front of a different audience, it would have ended with cheering and chants of “Four more years!”

Of course, that different audience might be hard to find. Americans are hurting – and blaming Obama for their pain. The idea that Obama’s strongly-worded speech, full of commands and implicit challenges, would be largely just another example of politicians talking past each other would surely be galling to them – if it weren’t so common. One is tempted to surmise that the Obama administration is even counting onRepublicans‘ refusal to engage in the ideas the president outlined.

Are we to believe that it has taken 34 months for Mr. Obama to realize that we have an employment/tax/economy issue? After all, there are only 14 months until the election…

Oh yea, “Pass this Bill!”
