As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

The Obama Morning News || June 13, 2011

President Obama will be pushing jobs in a trip today to North Carolina that also has a clear political agenda. He’ll speak at a company that is outsourcing work to China, which the RNS has notice, the Daily Caller reports. The president pleaded for patience on the economic recovery. Former Obama economic aide Larry Summers wants more stimulus.

Obama travels to Puerto Rico Tuesday as part of his campaign to round up Hispanic votes. Some Democratic donors are saying they are unhappy with Obama and may sit this one out.

Obama is beginning the internal White House debate about how many troops to take out of Afghanistan.

The Republican presidential contenders are getting set to debate. Newt Gingrich affirmed that he’s sticking with his campaign even though most of his top aides left him, saying “I will endure.”

Mitt Romney is enjoying a good ride right now, but he needs to overcome questions about his authenticity. Tim Pawlenty expressed his opposition to “Obamneycare.”

And John Boehner is crying again.

  1. MrO can raise all the money in the world, but he has nothing to offer the voting public. He can’t promote his record, his dreams of the future are impractical and the pubic is weary of our young people spilling blood to protect other countries. When he tells his donors that the Repubs want to cut corporate taxes, reduce outsourcing of jobs and want to overturn Obamacare, he’s pretty much telling them that he’s the wrong man for the job he hopes to keep.
    Barring some unforeseen event, MrO will not be re-elected, but will be replaced by one of the Repubs “boring, flawed, or retreaded” candidates. Dem Senators who must run for re-election in 2012 will distance themselves from MrO and his policies. MrO will have to run alone.

  2. A man who cries at the drop of a hat usually has some emotional or substance abuse issues. Mr. Boehner appears to cry for no reason at all. No wonder we can’t get anything done in Washington. We have a crybaby congressional leader versus the bully in the WH.

  3. Romney is a liberal (in my book) but may be our best bet. As much as I want a real conservative to run for President, I may be stuck with a (non-caffeine) tea-swilling RINO. But he has the look, the smile, the carriage of a Republican. So, being the loyal SOB I am … if Romney gets the nod, I’ll vote for him.


    Debate’s tonight! Watch for Herman Cain to get the most applause, though, after listening to him last week on FOX, I would not vote for him; he avoided almost every question Sean threw at him. Newty will attempt to resurrect his campaign (dead); the NYT excoriated him … and rightly so. He and Calista simply live off the money that is donated to him. Pawlenty (yawn) will offer nothing substantive – and his jokes are without depth. Look for Romney to come out of left field and hit hard.


    Will Obama get the donors he needs? Like Bloomberg, he will raise over a billion dollars and like Bloomberg, attempt to purchase the election; liberals decry “the rich”, yet Mr. Obama will be bleeding donors this week in Puerto Rico (as Keith’s article opine’s) for handouts. Remember: Liberals see themselves as held to completely different standards than you are me. Buying and election (or stealing it) are one in the same.


    Jobs, jobs, jobs. Where are they? What Mr. Obama fails to realize is that jobs are made by the dirty, mean, ole rich men on Wall Street investing capital in risky ventures. If the venture makes it, you’ve got a job. If it doesn’t, you look elsewhere. We vote with our dollars, so a venture can later peter out and die if it does not provide a service on properly or on time. This is called Risk. Government cannot fund risk, invest it, or develop it. Government can only make it easier or harder for risk to be invested and managed. And right now, Mr. Obama’s America is a minefield to Risk and Investment.

    • You didn’t like Pawlenty’s comment that he wasn’t running for Clown-in-Chief…at least as funny as you know who. And speaking of, the NYT says Wall Street is no longer unlimbering the checkbooks… Romney? Well, at least he isn’t cocktail-swilling, which seems to be an insult on this list.
