Sure don’t want or need another week like this last one!?! 
Now, the news………

But the dino-media just told you they were most in favor of it!
CALIFORNIA SCARY: Much of California’s funds come from Washington, D.C. Now, that’s shaky ground.“The real state budget includes an additional $79.2 billion in federal largesse, representing 38% of total state spending. This brings the grand total to $208.7 billion. So the state of California is getting a nearly $209-billion spending program while putting up less than $130 billion itself. . . . All programs are in jeopardy. It’s a good bet much of their federal funding will be trimmed or terminated in the future.”
For most, the recession started when their relatives and neighbors lost their jobs. For all, relief will come when Obama loses his.

Dem Senator: Media Has Responsibility to not Give Equal Time to Tea Party

Unbelievable! Senator John ‘f’in Kerry (rumored to have served in Vietnam) advocating the media denying a portion of American citizens their first amendment rights.

The Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto says it best,

It’s rather galling for somebody who has never apologized for kicking off his career with such extravagant slanders to be lecturing anybody about ‘who’s real, who isn’t, who’s serious, who isn’t’.”

In case any have forgotten Kerry’s infamous lies,

They had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, tape wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the country side of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.”

Thank you Swift Boat Veterans for Truth for exposing this guy in 2004 and keeping him from moving into the Oval Office.

Massachusetts, wake up!

3, 2, 1 …Obama Blames Republicans for Credit Downgrade

It’s laughable, but so expected and predicted. The point is: The GOP could have stood firmer on cuts, caps and balanced budget –standing on principle–and still would have been blamed. The GOP should have held out for deep cuts that would have helped their country–not just the next news cycle and election.
Their compromise was blamed for yesterday’s market dip and today their compromise was blamed for the credit downgrade.
Stand up for what’s right and the public opinion polls, election results and the country’s economic future will take care of themselves.
Of course as you know the ratings companies were threatening a downgrade for weeks…

The credit agencies (the same ones which claimed CDO’s were AAA) said the US had to trim $4 Trillion off its books before they’d consider keeping the AAA rating. The #debtzilla deal did not do that. The Democrats wouldn’t let it and the Republicans let them get away with it. And today Voila! we have a downgrade.
Here’s ABC’s Jake Tapper with his telltale tweet this afternoon:

And if you went to the story you found this nugget:

Two government officials tell ABC News that the federal government is expecting and preparing for bond rating agency Standard & Poor’s to downgrade the rating of U.S. debt from its current AAA value.
Official reasons given, one official says, will be the political confusion surrounding the process of raising the debt ceiling, and lack of confidence that the political system will be able to agree to more deficit reduction. A source says Republicans saying that they refuse to accept any tax increases as part of a larger deal will be part of the reason cited. The official was unsure if the bond rating would be AA+ or AA.

Don’t act like I never told ya.

Standard & Poor’s downgrades U.S. credit rating for first time

AP via The Olympian

“The agency says that it is cutting the country’s top AAA rating by one notch to AA-plus. The credit agency said late Friday that it is making the move because the deficit-reduction plan passed by Congress on Tuesday did not go far enough to stabilize the country’s debt situation.”

“A source familiar with the discussions said that the Obama administration believes S&P’s analysis contained ‘deep and fundamental flaws’.”

As I recall, credit agencies were looking for at least $4 Trillion in deficit reduction. The sell-out deal we got was claimed to be only $3 Trillion.

And what of the actual debt?

I have to wonder just how much worse it will get before we can return some decent leadership to the nation? Even Jimmy Carter did not cause our credit rating to drop.

OMG 2012

Old Rules and Old Lines Apply in CD 1 Race

See those striped portions of map there? Those are the changes in the lines in CD 1. That means CD 1 will lose part of downtown Portland and many liberals in upcoming elections. This will benefit more moderate to conservative candidates. But these new lines will not be used in the upcoming DO OVER election to replace David Wu.

Live: The President on Jobs

How will he explain 117,000 jobs were added, but we lost 193,000 job seekers.  Why isn’t that the headline? After saying he would “save or create” millions of jobs with billions of our tax dollars in a huge wealth transfer, how will he reconcile Jay Carney’s assertion yesterday –a correct one–that “The White House Doesn’t Create Jobs” with what he’s been doing to screw stuff up for years?
