    Obama needs to recover 29 million votes he lost from 2008 to 2010, which ain’t gonna happen. He might be able to get there if he can get at least 200K net new permanent jobs per month from now until October 2012. That would get the UE rate to around 7.2% to 7%, which is the breaking point for reelection (Reagan was at 7.2% and falling right before November 1984), but where the hell are those jobs going to come from? That’s a total of 4.6 Million new permanent jobs!!! It’s virtually impossible!! Shouldn’t we be serious about finding a primary opponent?

  • Paths of Glory is the Greatest War movie ever made. If you have the chance, please see it. I think it’s been downloaded to Youtube:

  • We’re in unchartered territory, probably in year four of our countries third depression (Panic of 1893, Great Depression, Great Recession). Unfortunately, will still have about 10 more years of this. By the time we get back on our feet, China will have surpassed us in GDP and our country will be looking at a dissolution similar to the old Soviet Union. The numbers don’t lie.

  • Last week I noted that Obama needed to get back the 29 million votes he lost in the midterms, which I believe is impossible to do. With this comprimise, he’s just added to that total. He is done. Everyone, please start planning now for a primary challenge in 2012. It is are last chance, we only have one more shot. We are rapidly regressing back to pre-New Deal standards of living.

    I couldn’t get to bed last night because I was obsessing over that same thought. It seems way to calculating, that this couldn’t be a conspiracy. Obama has done absolutely nothing he said he would do during the campaign (minus scotus for window dressing). That’s actually very hard to do without people noticing after 2 years.

    And Hartmann has been a guilty apologist for barry for the last year. If Hartmann’s done, that is saying something…..

    From Ian Welsh at

    People, Obama is not and never has been a left winger. Nor is he a Nixonian or Eisenhower Republican, that would put him massively to the left of where he is and to the left of the majority of the Democratic party. Instead his a Reaganite, something he told people repeatedly.

    Until folks get it through their skulls that Obama is not and never was a liberal, a progressive or left wing in any way, shape or form they are going to continue misdiagnosing the problem. That isn’t to say Obama may or may not be a wimp, but he always compromises right, never left and his compromises are minor. He always wanted tax cuts. He gave away the public option in private negotiations near the beginning of the HCR fight, not the end. He never even proposed an adequate stimulus bill. He bent arms, hard, to get TARP through.

    He’s a Reaganite. It’s what he believes in, genuinely. Moreover he despises left wingers, likes kicking gays and women whenever he gets a chance and believes deeply and truly in the security state (you did notice that Obama administration told everyone to take their objections to backscatter scanners and groping and shove them where the sun don’t shine, then told you they’re thinking of extending TSA police state activities to other public transit?)

    Let me put it even more baldly. Obama is, actually, a bad man. He didn’t do the right thing when he had a majority, and now that he has the excuse of a Republican House he’s going to let them do bad thing after bad thing. This isn’t about “compromise”, this is about doing what he wants to do anyway, like slashing social security. The Senate, you remember, voted down the catfood comission. Obama reinstituted it by executive fiat.

    If the left doesn’t stand against Obama and doesn’t primary him, it stands for nothing and for nobody.

    As I’ve said in previous posts, Obama is a goner. 29 million votes is a steep hill er’ mountain to climb. Jim, I’m sorry for your loss. On a brighter note, we’ve reached peak oil (around 2008) and will be returning to a more realistic lifestyle within the next 10 years. Yes, we will be [...]

  • #6 is probably unemployed. I don’t blame him/her.

  • I wouldn’t worry folks. I am 99.9% certain that Obama will be gone as of January 20, 2013. He needs to make up 29 million votes between now and election Day November 2012. There is no way even Jesus Christ could do that within two years. He has angered so many people, progressives and independents, and even some of my moderate republican friends. Why do you think Axe is in Chicago getting ready now!! Yes, a Republican will be in the WH in 2013. Obama is effectively in Lame duck status once the house becomes republican in January 2011.
