Obama’s Lowlights (6/18/12)

Bill Press – The liberal radio host had this to say about our national anthem "It's an abomination." "Are we the only ones who are brave on the planet? I mean all the brave people live here. I mean it’s just stupid I think." "I’m embarrassed, I’m embarrassed every time I hear it."

Bill Clinton – The former president believes the Bush Tax Cuts should be extended and increasing taxes on the wealthy should not be implemented.

California – San Diego and San Jose residents overwhelmingly approved labor union pension cuts.

Suicide Bombers – Al Qaeda is advertising online for suicide bombers “the advertisements ask for volunteers to get in touch via e-mail with details about their own experience and proposed targets, and were posted on a variety of jihadist forums, including Al-Fidaa, Shmoukh al-Islam and Honein”.

Wisconsin – The Left attributes the Scott Walker victory to a decisive 7:1 cash advantage and the Supreme Court Citizens United decision. However, some media stories claim that the Walker cash advantage was 30 million to 25 million and all of the contributions to the Walker campaign would have been legal prior to Citizens United decision.

Security Leaks – Detailed articles by the NY Times and other liberal papers about the use of the Stunext computer virus and the Bin Laden killing have brought about bipartisan concerns about national security leaks within the administration to politicize Obama’s national security record.

Digital Divide – From Michael Medved “During the 1990s, liberal politicians led by Al Gore warned about the so-called “digital divide” which left minorities and the poor with less access to the Internet. New figures show that the situation is now reversed, with children in the nation’s poorest households devoting ten hours more each week to the internet and TV than middle class kids, wasting time primarily on social networks and video games.”

Campaign Finance - The Romney campaign and the RNC raised 78 million last month and also reported ending the month with $107 million cash on hand. That massive haul tops what the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee raised in May by more than $16 million, according to figures released last week.

DOJ – Eric Holder has been asked to investigate SWATing crimes against conservative bloggers.

Unions - Mayor of Chicago and President Obama's former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel is gearing up for a battle with the Chicago Teachers' Union. I wonder if the Left will try to recall him?

IRS – The IRS is looking to do away with the tax exempt status for political non-profit organizations.

Nevada – Seven teachers awarded as the “Best New Teachers of the Year” were laid off because of teacher union seniority requirements.

Obama Press Conference – Obama told reporters the “private sector is doing fine” and attributed the nation’s high unemployment to a lack of state and local government jobs.

Planned Parenthood - A high school in Los Angeles has opened a Planned Parenthood clinic on its campus with the goal of reducing teen pregnancy rates.


  1. I wanted to have a party when Scott Walker won in Wisconsin. Funny how the Left was never bothered by the undue influence of money when Obama won.

    I think people greatly exaggerate the power of the big campaign war chest. Yes, it certainly helps. But there are a lot of examples of candidates who won after being largely out-spent. When people ask if Walker won because he raised so much more money, I want counter that by asking, “Did he raise so much more money because he had so much more support, and is that the real reason he won?”

  2. I actually read some materials that the media and Left have lied about the amount of money that Walker outspent Barrett on - 30 million to 25 million. That is not 8 to 1 or 7 to 1. I hope this is a good sign for Romney, I hate to say this, but I think he has to steal a state like Wisconsin to have a chance. It is early, but Obama's electoral path looks much more doable.

  3. I agree with you, Patrick. I don’t think Romney has an easy road ahead of him by any means, which is amazing considering Obama’s track record. It just goes to show what we’re really up against.
