Obama: "We don't have a spending problem… I'm getting tired of hearing you say that."

He's not even funny any more.


Because his wife is also very Green and “deeply socialist.”

I don't think I can afford to be deeply socialist.


The adjective "deeply" signifies a complete surrender of critical judgment and perhaps a warning to Jeremy.


The adjective “deeply” signifies a complete surrender of critical judgment...

Well, the emphasis kind of backfires and rings a little hollow, especially from someone whose extensive property portfolio includes a peachy-pink castle.


imaginary opponents

"The thing is, [the rich] think nothing about killing us," she said. "They think nothing about putting our people in harm's way. They think nothing about lethal working conditions." She cited the fact that not all Chicago schools have air conditioning as evidence that the union's opponents want teachers to work in dangerous conditions.

With a salary reputed to be in the $450,000 per year range, the jolly Karen Lewis IS the rich, Rafi. What is truly disgusting about her is not her hypocrisy, but that someone could be that appallingly ignorant and yet be the leader of a teachers' union, let alone a school teacher. If she is the "best of the best", what chance do the children of Chicago have?


I hear she's willing to pay a big bounty for some guy named "Solo", though, so there's that...


"It does not appear that Congress and the White House will come to any consensus on how best to solve our fiscal crisis at the federal level. Conservatives and liberals simply have diametrically opposed views on how our fiscal crisis can best be resolved while preserving economic growth. But at the state level, conservative and liberal models of governance are being fully implemented. And it is becoming increasingly clear which of those visions is producing the best results."

When Leo isn't posing with cute little polar bears on magazine covers, he's living in a $2.5 million, 4,500+ square foot home. Oh, he also owns the home next door. Maybe he was explaining to the little bear why it had to die. So Leo could entertain.

“Tax revenue has been falling despite a sharp increase in the rate.” Despite?



Sanity Inspector,

Corrected, thanks.



“Plane Altitude has been falling despite a sharply pulling back on the stick.” Despite?

"I don't think I can afford to be deeply socialist."

I can't afford other people being deeply socialist. It never seems to have any negative effects on their wealth.

Spiny Norman


That's because they have supported the correct causes, and made "campaign contributions" (aka legal bribes) to the correct people, to ensure it does not negatively affect their wealth.



Hmm, I wonder whether Jeremy started walking around asking nobody in particular how many clothes a person needs after he made the mistake of asking his deeply socilaist wife how many dresses a woman needs? Much safer, no?

Lenin's nest egg

Now that the left has achieved wealth and duly lined their own nests (complete with stated justification), any calls by them for enforced poverty and restricted opportunity falls on the likes of you and me. Not on them.
