After all night listening to the media blame the Republicans, this is a pretty shabby return on the electricity used.
Issuing shrill cries to try and blame #ObamaReidShutdown on GOP
Not unexpected, but surprisingly lame. Everyone knows a man whose starting negotiating position is that he will not negotiate is responsible not only for any shutdown that occurs but also perpetuating a dysfunctional government.
From the Communist Party USA.
Neither party is anti-capitalist, but they aren’t identical either. Differences exist at the levels of policy and social composition. And despite the many frustrations of the past two years, the election of Barack Obama was historic and gave space to struggle for a people’s agenda.
If, on the other hand, the Republicans had been victorious in 2008 the character of class and democratic struggles would have unfolded very differently. Our movement would have been on the defensive from Day One, the Democrats would be running for cover, and the Republicans would have an unfettered hand in their efforts to liquidate the welfare state, roll back the rights revolution of the 1930s and 1960s, and crush the people’s movement – labor in the first place.
As for the wisdom of a third party, we have always advocated the formation of an independent people’s party at the core of which are the working class and labor, racially and nationally oppressed people, women, youth, immigrants, seniors, gay and straight, etc. It is essential for any deep-going social change. But its realization depends on more than our desire, more than our political-ideological attitude. Millions who have to be at the core of this party still operate under the umbrella of the Democratic Party, albeit increasingly in an independent fashion.
Moreover, to separate ourselves at this moment from these forces would be contrary to our strategic policy of building maximum unity against right-wing extremism now and in next year’s elections.
So, if you’ve ever wondered if there were real, bona fide Communists working within the Democratic Party, there it is. Yes, there are. The Commie said so.
Some 80+ Democrat House members are registered commies with CPUSA…
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as “bad luck.”
“We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again,” Obama told a crowd in Decorah, Iowa. “But over the last six months we’ve had a run of bad luck.”
Fan, instantiation, whatever.
Enemies domestic and foreign.
OblameO has that Hugo Chavez streak in him. When Hugo has a problem he needs to find, identify, target and place on stage the culprit. Same thing with OblameO, there is always someone at fault BUT HIM … It’s how tyrants manipulate the useful idiots.
He easily impresses crowds and onlookers so long as the questions don’t get too detailed. But he can’t turn any of this into action. Everything he touches, without exception, falls to pieces.
American Thinker’s J. R Dunn:
Which brings us back to Barack Obama, Columbia and Harvard grad, president of the Harvard Law Review, and Nobel laureate.
Events of recent days have called even the(Obama’s) “average” rating into question. Consider the “debt crisis,” so-called. It was actually no such thing. In Obama’s own words, it was an “unnecessary crisis” — that is to say, not a crisis at all. He should know, having triggered and shepherded it every step of the way.
What kind of mentality deliberately arranges a brawl over government finances in the midst of a sensitive and fragile recovery? Obama was obviously out to steal an issue from the GOP and wreck their 2012 campaign plans. But at what cost? Wrecking the national economy? This isn’t thinking of any description — it’s the mentality of a street punk who spots somebody in another gang and decides to take him down at no matter what happens to passersby or himself.
The S&P downgrade was something he was warned about, which he knew was coming, and which was not all that difficult to avoid. But he did nothing to avoid it. His response was that of a dull-normal — it never happened before, so it can’t happen now. Quite apart from the economic cost, it’s embarrassing and humiliating. From here on in, Obama is and always will be the president who wrecked America’s credit rating. He can put that right next to his Nobel citation.
Manage the decline of the USA. That’s not dumb, that’s OblameO’s reality.
Watch this PBS Documentary the Hugo Chavez Show. Are we watching the lame attempt at “The OblameO Show”?
