A Clinton-Obama difference, one of how many?

From the top-drawer Future of Capitalism site:

The “Conversations With Bill Kristol” interview this week is with Joseph Lieberman, who tells this anecdote about the difference between President Obama and President Clinton:

the last year when I was in the Senate, I was sitting at a table in the Senate. We happened to be at the Senate Democratic Caucus and one of the colleagues said, “When’s the last time any of you talked to President Obama?” So I said, he turned to me and I said, “Well, about six weeks ago, I got a call about something that was in my committee.” “Wow, six weeks ago.” So this guy who was the chairman of one of the major committees – “I haven’t seen him or talked to him in six months.” And then we started talking about Clinton and I remember saying, “Clinton, he’d call you and the problem was how do I get him off the phone,” he was just, you know, until he got your agreement to do what he wanted you to do.

One of them is wrapped up in his job, the other in himself.

Did the IRS’s Tea Party suppression get Obama reelected?

Asterisk president.

Like he took performance-enhancing drugs or something.

Making silk purse out of sow’s ear

. . . by responding to D. Wasserman Schultz, Dem spokesperson, who said:

Republicans in Congress would obstruct President Obama from having cereal for breakfast if they could.

The only chance we have to change Washington is to defeat the House Republicans standing in the way of America’s progress.

 

Etc.

To which I:

Debbie, give us time on that cereal for bkfst thing. 
signing it, Loyal  oppo.

 

Deucedly clever, I know.

Obama and Ms. Warren of Massachusetts:

President Barack Obama and Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren have more in common than just their liberal political ideology, Harvard Law pedigree, and Democratic Party affiliation. Both claim Cherokee ancestry, and neither can prove it.

Birds of a feathah!

JP Morgan Chase looking a mite tattered

This JP Morgan business is beginning to look like a case of Jamie, we hardly knew you. We meaning people on the street never did know him, but some thought they did, and it is to them I refer, including the presidential amateur who says Chase bank is so very well operated. It is?

(Jamie as in Dimon, of course, close buddy of The Amateur.)

When the president makes a list . . .

. . . bad things happen to high-profile participants in the political process.

What did Obama say in the 2008 primary campaign in Pennsylvania, To a knife fight, bring a gun? With a Pepsodent smile, too.

Civility, anyone?

North Carolina is nice, but Hollywood has more money

$15 million is not a bad night’s work, right?

Which is to say, boosting gay pseudo-marriage helps at the Clooney house, even if it hurts in NC, where they vote against it.

Clooney Heads?

And there’s more where that came from. Gosh, it seems every time you watch a movie, you contribute to Obama.

Down with Jenky!

At Notre Dame!

Notre Dame Holy Cross priest defends a brother

Rev. Wilson Miscamble CSC speaks up for Bishop Daniel Jenky CSC of Peoria in re Jenky’s vigorous, pointed analysis of Obama’s attacks on Catholic ministry:

His homily was a courageous homily which pointed to a pattern of behavior of a number of regimes to limit religious freedom and to attack religious institutions.

He was echoing rebuttal by ND law prof emeritus Charles E. Rice of letter by 49 Notre Dame faculty members who condemned Jenky’s sermon and called for his resignation from the Notre Dame board.

Bishop Jenky properly drew attention to the impending dangers to religious and personal freedom. The Obama regime . . . is substituting for the free economy and limited government a centralized command system of potentially unlimited jurisdiction and power. . . . The HHS Health Care Mandate imperils not only the mission of the Catholic Church but also the right of conscience itself.

Episcopal perps?

This Notre Dame alum blogging at The Weekly Standard says a stand-off between Obama and the Catholic bishops on the HHS mandate “may not be good for either side.”

He gives an instance, “the disastrous situation of the president sending bishops to jail for being faithful witnesses to their religious convictions.”

I’d say he’s on to something.

Later, from an informed source, an alternate scenario:

The bishops and obama go head to head — the bishops blowing steam — and Catholics (some) getting all revved up for months. Then, just before the election — a week — Obama caves on HHS and  Catholics are relieved to relax and get off their soap boxes.

They watch the bishops on TV kiss and make up profusely to Obama — photo op all’round, conciliatory quotes from Obama, and it’s practically an endorsement just before casting their ballots. You know nothing would make many of these bishops happier…to be assured they’d get the rest of Obamacare initiated.

As the poor lad legendarily told Shoeless Joe, say it ain’t so.
