ALOHA, ALL!! Remember how Barry claimed in his SOTU speech that he was on target to reach his goal of doubling exports? (I know….who was paying attention?) Anyhow, when I heard it I thought to myself, “export what?” He never explained what those exports were, hoping we’d all think it was cars or clothing or widgets. But guess what’s propelling Barry’s export success? Oil. Our own oil that we could be using for ourselves is going to other countries at a record pace. Check this out: Export growth on track to meet Obama goal – Economy – NewsObserver.com ”Sales of petroleum products also hit a record of about $90 billion in 2011, making fuel the country’s single-biggest export, and the United States a net exporter of fuel for the first time in six decades.” Are you kidding me????? Just one more example of how 0bama wants energy prices to “necessarily skyrocket.” (Shaka to Rose Marie for the link.)
To wit: Harper Builds Oil Link With China After Obama Keystone ‘Slap’ – Common American Journal “The Keystone decision was a slap in the face to Canada and it’s making Canadians rethink the relationship,” said Jack Mintz, head of the School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary. “Harper probably wants to put out a sign that we’re open for business for Asia.”
And have you heard how we’re “helping” Brazil? Obama’s $2 billion to Brazil ends up helping send oil to China « Hot Air ”We apparently can subsidize government controlled oil companies in foreign countries, but not here.”
CBO report not rosy. CBO: Taxes Will ‘Shoot Up by More Than 30 Percent’ Over Next 2 Years | CNSnews.com ”The U.S. economy, CBO projects, will perform “below its potential” for another six years and unemployment will remain above 7 percent for another three.”
But it’s rosy if you work for the government. CBO: Federal workers better compensated than in private sector – The Hill’s On The Money ”The Congressional Budget Office found Monday that federal workers are compensated 16 percent more than comparable private-sector workers on average.” More from The Heritage Foundation: Federal Workers Overpaid, and CBO Agrees ” Salaries and benefits–for identical jobs–are 30 percent to 40 percent higher in the federal government than in the private sector.”
BTW…headed to a Heritage Foundation dinner tonight with Dinesh D’Souza speaking!
That’s it….the CBO must be racist! Racist Congressional Budget Office Declares Obamanomics a Flop | All American Blogger ”I know I’m at risk of being called a racist, but since I am a white man and therefore racist, I don’t really hesitate in saying that the fault lies at the feet of the president and his far left economic philosophy.” LOVE the sarcasm in this piece!!!
Did I say….it’s getting interesting? How Obama’s Eligibility Fiasco Poses Trouble For Dems | Western Journalism.com ”If Georgia’s Secretary of State says Obama is off the ballot, it will set in motion a scary domino effect that will devastate down ballot Democrats.” Then there’s this: Obama eligibility challenges spread to 6 states ”Whatever the outcome in Georgia, the issue is gaining traction in other states, too, including Alabama, Tennessee, Arizona, New Hampshire, and even Illinois, Obama’s home political base.
Romney wins Florida, Newt & Santorum vow to fight on. Let’s hope they listen to Dick Morris.
TMI! TMI! FLOTUS $50k shopping spree shuts down Madison Avenue. Update: WH says nonsense – Common American Journal ”First Lady Michelle Obama has apparently given British lingerie label Agent Provocateur a boost after a lavish spending spree last year.” YIKES! This story may or may not be true…but I don’t like the visual.
Some good news. House GOP closer to vote on making English the official language – TheHill.com ”Republicans believe a vote on the bipartisan measure would put the Obama administration on the defensive. President Obama voted against the effort when he served in the Senate.”
Yeah….they’re just like the Tea Party. Obama Supported Occupy Thugs Throw Condoms on Catholic School Girls | All American Blogger ”Demonstrators from the Occupy Wall Street movement threw condoms on Catholic schoolgirls, refused to allow a Catholic priest to give a closing prayer, and shouted down a pro-life speaker at a Rhode Island right to life rally on Thursday, according to its organizer.”
Final Thought: ”We have run out of places in the US to drill for oil.” Obama’s oval office speech in June 2010
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!!
ALOHA, ALL! As you get ready for the weekend, I thought you might want to know what the new Congress has been up to:
Marsha Blackburn & 46 co-sponsors introduce legislation to rein in the EPA: Nearly 50 House Republicans offer bill to block EPA climate rules – The Hill’s E2-Wire.
No more czars???? Republicans introduce bill to eliminate presidential ‘czars’ – The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room. The legislation, which was introduced in the last Congress but was not allowed to advance under Democratic control, would do away with the 39 czars Obama has employed during his administration. Here’s a czar list from Glen Beck.
Investigations starting into DOJ & the New Black Panther case: Right Turn – EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Lamar Smith issues first DOJ oversight letter.
Oh yeah….now that the CBO is getting the right numbers, it turns out repealing 0bamacare would actually reduce spending: The American Spectator : AmSpecBlog : BREAKING: CBO Says Repealing ObamaCare Would Reduce Net Spending by $540 Billion. But didn’t Nancy Nitwit say that reduced spending & deficit reduction was her “mantra”???? (Maybe she doesn’t know what mantra means, poor dear.) Here’s a GREAT look into the left-wing loony brain that may give some insight on how they think: Inside The Lefty Brain (Thanks to Rob – a definite non-lefty – for the link!)
Check out Paul Ryan’s graph of the REAL costs of 0bamacare: Costly Consequences of Healthcare Overhaul
UPDATE: THERE’S EVEN MORE! This link was just sent to me by the Sam Adams Alliance. There were actually 21 new bills introduced by the new GOP leadership dealing with taxes, spending & 0bamacare: Yesterday in Congress (BTW, note the lame bills introduced by Dems.)
And finally – this screen shot from John Boehner’s Facebook page:
