California’s government spends millions to put people *on* foodstamps

May 20, 2012

Sometimes I really do think this state is hopeless. Now we have Sacramento re-branding the food-stamp program with the happy-face “CalFresh” and spending public money to convince people to become dependent on Nanny State.

That’s the last item in this video from the California branch of Americans for Prosperity. Earlier segments include Governor Brown’s admission he has no clue what he’s doing, and Obama’s insistence (1) that we get busy with our high-speed railroad boondoggle.


PS: Suggestion to the presenter, Jessica Headley. Think about dropping the “cute” hand gestures. They’re not funny and they only distract and annoy. Otherwise, nice job.

(1) Dear Mr. President: We don’t need any encouragement to spend like a drunken sailor in a brothel on payday. In fact, we wrote the book for you guys.

(Video) Our fourth-greatest president, revisited

“Tell me you love me!”

Back around Christmas, our Savior-President announced that he was the 4th-best president in our history. Some of us foolishly tweaked Obama for this, mistaking this moment of self-effacement for an act of monumental ego. American Crossroads, indeed, went so far as to make a video unfairly mocking Obama for simply expressing the humble truth.

Well, here we go again. Howling, raging right-wing fanatics have again reacted like instinct-driven haters and jeered at Obama for inserting himself into the biographies of almost every president over the last 100 years.

And Karl Rove’s American Crossroads has another video:

Oh, is there no end to the disrespect and mockery?

PS: By the way, according to a North Carolina teacher, disrespecting Obama is criminal.

Bain vs. Bane

May 20, 2012

The Obama campaign, including their allies in the media, have tried their best to make Mitt Romney’s time at turnaround investment company Bain Capital a negative for him, portraying him as a heartless, greedy capitalist. (1)

The IBD’s Michael Ramirez parries those attacks with one simple cartoon that compare Romney’s record as a CEO to Obama’s as president:

As they say, ’nuff said.

And be sure to check out Michael’s archive at IBD; he’s the best conservative political cartoonist in the business these days and one of the best, ever.

(1) Sadly, some Republicans helped give them ammunition. And let’s not speak of Obama’s corporate donors and the rewards they get; that would be racist.
