HDR 159: Obama IS The Food Stamp President!
ALOHA, ALL! So here’s something that grew during 0bama’s tenure: THE FOOD STAMP PROGRAM. Under Barry, the number of food stamp recipients has risen 39%. The number is about 61% higher than it was four years ago. And about 67% of the USDA’s budget is spent on the food stamp program. Ah, but those nasty Republicans want to do this: The Republicans’ 2012 budget plan proposes changing SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) from an entitlement to a block-grant program that would be tailored for each individual state, much like their proposal for Medicaid. States would no longer receive open-ended subsidies and the aid would be contingent on work or job training. It would also limit funding for the program. Wanna bet that the Dems use this as another weapon in their class warfare approach? So along with ads showing granny thrown over a cliff, we’ll see ads with a Paul Ryan look-alike taking food out of a kid’s mouth. They are shameless, after all. Congress Mulls Cuts to Food Stamps Program Amid Record Number of Recipients – The Note Oh yeah – you might recall that Newt Gingrich was accused of being racist when he referred to Barry as “The Food Stamp President” recently. Well….looks like Newt was right about this one.
Earth to Wasserman-Schultz: Attn: Wasserman Schultz – Is an Illegal Alien’s Murder of a Houston Cop a crime? – Updated | All American Blogger “So I have to ask Debbie, if an illegal immigrant kills a Houston police officer, are they guilty of that crime? Or do they get a pass on it also? The reason I ask is because one just did. It was the sixth straight officer killed in Houston to be killed by an “undocumented American.”
Another lefty named by Barry. Obama Commerce pick sets up showdown on trade with Senate GOP – The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room “With gas prices at nearly $4 a gallon, it’s certainly eye-catching that President Obama has nominated a founder of an organization that opposes efforts to increase domestic oil production to serve as the nation’s key advocate for our economic interests,” Darrell Issa said in a statement. “The nomination of John Bryson to lead the Department of Commerce seems deeply out of touch with our current energy challenge.” Oh yeah – Bryson wants Cap and Trade legislation because it’s a good way to “hide” a carbon tax from the public.

I always wondered who would hire anyone with lobe-expanding earrings. Check out the new CTO to head the 0bama 2012 campaign: Former Threadless CTO Is Now Obama Campaign CTO On his blog, he declares himself “probably the coolest guy ever.”
LOVE this guy! GOP Lawmaker Turns Down White House Meeting: “I Won’t Be Lectured to” By Failed President | The Gateway Pundit “I have respectfully declined the president’s invitation to the White House today,” Rep. Jeff Landry (La.) said in a statement. “I don’t intend to spend my morning being lectured to by a president whose failed policies have put our children and grandchildren in a huge burden of debt.” WOO HOO!! Paul Ryan also told Barry on Wednesday that “Leadership comes from the top” and that he didn’t appreciate all the Democrat “Mediscare” tactics. Ryan got a standing ovation from all the Republicans (I have a feeling Barry stayed seated.) One freshman lawmaker is a quick learner “I could tell the president was nervous, because when he’s nervous, he talks on and on. Everybody else he gave about a three- or four-minute answer to. To Paul Ryan it was about 20 minutes,” freshman Rep. James Lankford (R-Okla.) said. LOL!! Ryan to Obama: ‘Leadership should come from the top’ – TheHill.com
“I WILL NOT YIELD MY TIME” Why is Paul Ryan the only one going after the Dems’ lies? Great video of him from the House floor Wednesday:
Piper for President! One of my favorite people to see is Piper Palin with her Mom. Even during the 2008 election season, she was front and center. Watch this video and see how she has become a real pro at handling the media: Our favorite ‘grizzly cub’ is the gutsy Piper Palin – Common American Journal
Doofus of the Week Award goes to Martin Bashir: MSNBC Anchor: Palin‘s Use of American Flag Could be ’Breach of Federal Law’ | The Blaze Bashir said: “In fact, the whole thing could be in breach of a federal law because the United States Flag Code establishes important rules for the use and display of the stars and stripes, the flag of the United States. Under standards of respect and etiquette, it’s made clear that the flag of the United States should never be used for any advertising purpose whatsoever.” But it’s OK for your comrade Bill Ayers to stand on it? Just shut yer pie hole!
Good stuff: “Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is launching a $500 million program to teach kids how to ‘sit still’ in Kindergarten. Maybe they should take the money from Michelle Obama’s ‘Let’s Move’ initiative.” –former Senator Fred Thompson
“President Obama arrived in France for the G8 summit, a meeting of the world’s top economic powers. To give you an idea of how bad our economy is doing, when the president arrived, the other countries were like, ‘What are you doing here?'” –comedian Jay Leno
Final Thought: “The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions.” –American statesman Daniel Webster (1782-1852)
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
