Obama: "You Can Go Ahead And Clap"

Mr Obama's quite into self-promotion these days, reveling in the violent passing of Muammar Khaddafi (one of 75 different ways of spelling his name) -- as though he had something to do with it -- and prompting applause at the end of his lackluster (Canadian-manufactured by Prevost) Bus Tour. From the Los Angeles Times:

On Wednesday afternoon, Obama stood at a lectern against a backdrop of firefighters and offered his prescription for solving the persistent jobs crisis: "A fair shot for everybody; a fair share from everybody. That's the principle that built America."

The president got a polite reception from the 100 or so people crowded into the station garage. Early in his speech he mentioned his American Jobs Act.

One or two people clapped.

"You can go ahead and clap," the president said. "Go ahead, nothing wrong with it."

In the meantime, it may appear that Nancy Pelosi won't get a Christmas card from Mr Obama this year. From The Hill:

Pelosi's silent treatment shows breaks with President Obama

By Mike Lillis - 10/20/11 05:30 AM ET

For House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), disagreement with President Obama often takes the form of silence.

While rank-and-file House Democrats have been outspoken in taking the White House to task over issues as diverse as foreclosure prevention, environmental protection and funding the federal government, Pelosi has stayed quiet or shifted her talking points to attacks on the GOP.

And all is not well between Mr Obama and the Demorats:

Rep. Dennis Cardoza, D-Calif., announced his retirement from Congress this afternoon -- and he issued a scathing parting shot at President Obama's track record on his way out.

In a statement explaining his decision, Cardoza, a leader of the centrist Blue Dog Coalition, said he was "dismayed" by the administration's "failure to understand and effectively address the current housing foreclosure crisis."

Home foreclosures are destroying communities and crushing our economy, and the Administration's inaction is infuriating," Cardoza said.

A former chairman of the moderate Blue Dog Caucus, Cardoza also bemoaned the increasing partisanship in Washington, and blamed the media for fueling the ideological divide in the country, not giving enough attention to moderates.

But wait, every bit of news isn't bad:

Cardoza is the sixth member -- all Democrats -- to announce plans to retire outright so far. He's also the third member of the Blue Dog Caucus to head for the exits -- joining fellow moderate Reps. Dan Boren, D-Okla., and Mike Ross, D-Ark.

And finally, it is with the greatest sadness that I report Minister Louis Farrakhan seems to be breaking with the First Black President of the United States:

A YouTube video of Minister Louis Farrakhan taking President Obama to task over the war in Afghanistan and the bombing of Libya is making its way around the Web. In the video, Farrakhan admonishes the president for turning into someone else. Farrakhan says, "We voted for our brother Barack, a beautiful human being with a sweet heart, and now he's an assassin. They turned him into them."

"They turned him into them." Right. It's not Mr Obama's fault. It's that nebulous "they." In Mr Farrakhan's racist world, "they" are white.

People, you couldn't write a fiction book this ridiculous and out-of-control.

Please bring all evidence.

You may also bring counsel, if desired. Free counsel, due to the charge, will not be provided.

Failure to appear will result in a bench warrant for your arrest.

You know, a Pelosi silent treatment is not something to be happy about. What that tells me is Obama isn't behaving LEFT enough. And if that's the case WE'RE SCREWED! IF Obama's actions are not left enough for Pelosi how far LEFT does someone have to be????

Farafukinklan can kiss my ass, Him and his entire nation of NWORDS should be curb stomped just like them KKK fks in the woods of Arkansas. No use for either camp. The world would be a better place if they all dropped dead.

We got serious issues here in our beloved nation. The racial differences are NOT ON TOP. The ideological differences are. And I'd stake 200+ years of American Dominance against the years of Socialist/Communism/Marxism that were successful any day.

Fact is Republicans are too stupid to understand they OWN the conversation based on HISTORY alone. Republicans are very close to giving the entire country away. IT's CONSERVATIVES that can save it if they get the FK out of the way.

It seems that, despite Obama's watch claiming credit for killing OBL and, now, Gaddafi, Obama's charisma is fading.

The fact that he had to encourage applause is interesting indeed! Think back to four years ago when Americans were knocking each other down to shower adulation on "The One."

I've watched online two raw videos of the capture and slaughter of Gaddafi. Brutal stuff. And to think that Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Hussein Obama facilitated this kill.

As for Pelosi, I wonder if she's distancing herself because she's worried about regaining her seat to Congress in 2012. Tehre a lot of anti-Obama sentiment even in California now.

Robert, you've hit on a major point. Many Demorats and Leftists believe that Mr Obama IS "insufficiently left for the Left," as I say.
