Making the Case


If you are feeling frustrated -- not by the Obama Administration, but by the "just say no" Republicans, the empty talking heads blowing this way and that with the political wind, the tea baggers who think there's too much government but want government to solve all of their problems and the naive lefties who thought Obama could go to Washington and change everything with the snap of his fingers -- I suggest you take the time and watch this interview with senior White House adviser David Axelrod. He perfectly and calmly lays out the remarkable accomplishments of the Obama Administration (which has only been around for a year and a half for crying out loud!). Are there blemishes on the administration? Of course. Has everything gone perfectly according to plan? Of course not. Have the Republicans offered any help for our country? Again, of course not.

Enjoy the unedited interview and buff up on your pro-Obama arguments for the next time you are confronted by an idiot:

"I know this is supposed to be Barack Obama’s summer of discontent. The oil spill is still gushing; the economy is still floundering; the Afghan war is deteriorating; Americans don’t find him so charming anymore. But have you noticed that when it comes to actual policy, he keeps racking up the wins? This week it was financial-regulatory reform. One can argue about whether the bill the Senate passed will truly change the way Wall Street operates, but off the top of your head, can you name a more significant piece of progressive legislation signed by either of the last two Democratic presidents? Neither can I. And that goes for Obama’s stimulus package and his health-care reform as well. All of which means that, legislatively at least, Obama has exceeded in 18 months what Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter achieved in a combined 12 years. By summer’s end, he’ll also have shepherded two young liberal justices on to the Supreme Court."
Read the rest here.

Say It Ain't sO


Is Oprah rigging her TV show contest against Zach Anner?
"...in the span of an hour around or just before 3pm EDT, the woman who had been trailing Anner for some time, Doctor Phyllis, took the lead. And she did so at what sounds to be an unbelievable rate. The Huffington Post reports an increase of 300,000 votes in 20 minutes. Reddit reports 600,000 in an hour."
People, you know what to do: Click and VOTE for Zach. Again and again and again.

In the meantime, check out Zach's pilot for his travel show, featuring "The Beacon of Fun, The Texas State Capitol":

The Passion of the Prez


Thanks to idiots on both the left and the right, Obama cannot win. No matter what he does, he's either a Sellout/Republican-in-disguise/Traitor (my friends on the left) or a Marxist/Socialist/Dictator (my enemies on the right).

Today, we have proof that our President is not to be messed with: BP has agreed to set aside $20 billion dollars in escrow to pay for damages from their goddamned oil spill. This is rockin' good news (remember how Exxon got away easy with the Valdez spill - I believe the BP agreement is at least 20 times more than Exxon paid and it's not capped at $20 billion). Remember: Obama said he would "make BP pay" and lookee here, BP is gonna pay. So, Obama is truly a man of his word.

However, I've yet to see anyone on the left side of the blogosphere offer any praise for our President. And, of course, over on the right, Wall Street Journal columnist Holman Jenkins has, according to Salon, attacked the President's treatment of BP:
"...according to Jenkins, by declaring a moratorium on offshore drilling and then asking BP to compensate unemployed oil workers Obama is like 'a policeman [who] kicks out your taillight and then writes you a ticket for a faulty taillight.'"
Jenkins then goes on to blame Obama for BP's collapsing share prices.

Jenkins may have a better command of the English language than Governor-Quitter Palin, but his mind is just as bent when it comes to the thought of government getting "in the way of the private sector’s progress." (see below)

 

Here's Some Passion For Ya


Oh jeez, if we're not careful, we're going to end up with this retard in the Oval Office:



This is what amounts to expert advice on how to plug up the oil leak from ex-Governor Palin: “The Dutch, they are known and the Norwegian, they are known for, um, for dikes, and for cleaning up water and for dealing with spills” - yup, she actually said that. Then she really goes nuts: After accusing Obama of not making the oil spill his number one priority, she lays out what she would do if she were the "CEO" of the country: "National security – safety of the people – needs to be the top priority, that’s where we need to be funding instead of funding these other things on the periphery that really just get in the way of the private sector’s progress, their ability to produce and to thrive and to prosper.” And of course their ability to create a disaster like our current situation in the Gulf of Mexico.

 

How Much More Fucking "Passion" Do You Need?


Forget America's dependence on oil. What about America's dependence on pundits? Everywhere you look, from the New York Times to CNN to blogs to, of course, Fox News, pretty much all you see is a whole bunch of whining on both sides of the political spectrum about our President's so-called lack of passion. Seriously folks, what do you want him to do? Jump up and down and start hurling angry invectives all over the place. Yeah, America is truly (not truly) ready for an Angry Black President (I can hear Fox News now: "See, he's a Rev. Wright in sheep's clothing"). If the pundits would take their heads out of their asses for one second (not gonna happen), they'll realize the best thing for our country is to finally have an adult in the Oval Office:



So now can we start talking about America's dependence on oil?!?!?

 

More OK Go Genius




It's a shame these guys can't trade views on YouTube for record sales. Let's hope they're at least making enough scratch to keep producing these mind-boggling videos. And they should give that goose a contract!

Vote for Zach!


Zach Anner of Austin has cerebral palsy (the "sexiest of the palsies" according to Zach). This is in no way going to stop him from winning Oprah's "Your Own Show" contest. In fact, Zach currently is in the lead with a whopping 2,587,553 votes as of this posting. When Zach wins, he wants to do a travel show to "inspire people who never thought they could travel." Here's his truly hilarious audition tape:
