DC Asylum presents “Executive Orders Solve Everything”


(Nancy):  Your Presidency… you told us the American people didn’t care about process…

(Obama):  And they don’t…trust me.

(Nancy):  Well, it seems they are VERY interested in one part of the process

(Obama):  And what would that be?

(Nancy):  Article One, Section Four, Clause One

(Obama):  And what would that be?

(Nancy):  Your Presidency – you mock me – we both know I am refering to the mandate that federal elections occur on Tuesday after the first Monday in November…

(Obama):  November…No-vember… NO-vember….sounds like a month named after Republicans, doesn’t it.

(Nancy):  Your Presidency – what are we going to do?  We can’t afford to loose the House – we still have so much more to take over..I mean, take on..

(Obama):  Here you go Nancy… let me sign this Executive Order – your problems are solved.

(Nancy) I don’t understand…

(Obama):  It’s easy – by Executive Order, I decree all calenders to now only contain 11 months.  We just drop November.

Just remember folks – after the French Revolution, they redesigned the entire calender.  In fact, so have a number of other “Revolutions”.   So why would this be any different?

Joe Biden Correct – Too Many Democrats Were Elected


It would appear even Ol-Joe is capable of profound insight – when talking about the upcoming elections in November, he conceeds the Dems will loose seats.  But not because of the Health Care vote, not because they have completely ignored the massive outcry – but because … well…let him explain it.

“It was gigantic (Obama’s election causing the biggest turnout).  And a lot of really good Democrats got washed up on shore and all of a sudden were Congressmen, in districts that Democrats have no business having Congressmen.”

You know what Joe?  You’re absolutely right – there are districts which shouldn’t have Democrats as Congressmen.  219 districts for starts.  One in California which has the Madam Speaker, in particular.

And when the balance tips back to the Republicans, an “intellectual” explanation like the one you just gave, isn’t going to be the reason.  It’s going to be because of another profound insight you shared:

“The American people are smart,” Biden said.  “They smell a rat.”

They most certainly do sir…they most certainly do.

Warning to Democrats – November is Not Going To Go Away


I’m outside the U.S at the moment, but I do believe I will be buying me one of these T-Shirts when I get home.

I believe this message is a solid one, and I believe it sends a message the Democrats have been wanting to downplay.

November is still on the calender.

For the last few days, I’ve been writing that the battle was lost, but the final scene has yet to be written.  I also wrote that we would begin to see more and more campaigns to get people across America to support candidates outside of their state.

True – this campaign is over – but I would still recommend visiting the site.  So you can sign up for the next one.  Why miss out?  Why only participate once?  And don’t you believe your friends should know about it?

CBS asked Michael Steele if this was  “a little bit extreme”.  His answer was so right on the money –

“Nancy Pelosi is the architect of the demise of one-sixth of our economy.  She should be fired for her failure to serve the interests of the American people.”

When I looked at the site – I was tickled to see that California was one of the top 10 states contributing to her “forced retirement”.   The question today is this – was your state in top 10?  If it wasn’t, are you going to step up to the plate?

Do you know what I think the best part is?  The campaign raised 1.4 million dollars, in a one day period.  No major advertisement – just word of mouth.  Want to bet we’re going to see more such campaigns?  Want to bet they will still continue to provide substantial war-chests for those wanting to oust the incumbent?

Remember – there are 219 incumbents who voted “Yes” to the bigger question – “Am I willing to roll the dice and end my days as an incumbent?”

219 Candidates – 225 days


They say they needed 216 votes to pass…. I wonder if anyone noticed that on Sunday, there were only 225 days before they would be held accountable.

As more and more of this bill gets exposed, we’re going to see the following be the excuses used as defenses

1) I didn’t read all of the bill (so sorry, we wanted to stop cramming in through – this excuse won’t hold water).

2) I was lied to – I didn’t know it had that provision (sorry, read #1 to see how valid this is)

3) Nancy twisted my arm and I couldn’t take it any more (sorry, you were elected to represent the people, not be a servant to her insanity).

4) I thought it was good for America (and now you’re finding out it wasn’t?  Should have listened to the opposition instead of maligning them)

5) Barak promise it wasn’t going to be like this (get for real, he sacrificed you because he still has two more years to ride this one out and furhter mobilize SEIU).

6) The “special provisions” for my state were too good to pass up (yeah – the Senator from Nebraska sold out his character and integrity – and did it stay in?  One thing about integrity, it’s like virginity, once you give it up, it’s gone).

7)  I didn’t realize so many of my constituents were against it (hello?  Town Hall meetings?  Letters to the editors?  You just didn’t want to see it – its called “ostrich head”)

8) You misunderstand my position (sorry – your vote clearly explains your position)

9) I’m did it for the little man, and I’m proud of it (good – keep saying that while you’re on the lecture circuit – you’re still fired.  As for the “little man”, ask him which he would rather have: a job without health care, or health care without a job – health care doesn’t buy food, pay rent, or put clothes on the kids.)

10)  I’ve seen the error of my way, and I’m ready to go back to Washington to overtun this mistake (what, do you think you’re Tiger Woods and the American public is Elin – you messed up and now it’s time to face reality – the November Divorce lawyer is heading your way).

If you’re angry – then do something about it – find candidates who are ready to fight for you – and get behind them.

Wrong to think of Sunday as “Waterloo”


 

I wondered how long it would be before someone proclaimed the Democrat victory to be “Waterloo”.  Well, I already wrote about this a few weeks ago – the fight against Health Care is not, and can not, compare to Waterloo.  Like I said before, this last year has been more akin to “The Siege of Stalingrad”.  We’ve fought a war of attrition.

Another reason this is not “Waterloo”, is something the political cartoonist grossly fails to understand, for two reasons.  One, this was a stand against an Imperialist who was wanting to conquer all of Europe.  If there’s a comparasson between Napolean and anyone in particular – it would be SnowBama – the Imperial conquerer.

The second reason – when Napolean was defeated at Waterloo, that ended everything.  The defeat on Sunday is not the final battle.  November is still rolling closer and closer.  How many other famous generals have said something similar to “We won the Battle, but we lost the war”.  I’m pretty sure Tojo felt that way, maybe even Geronimo.

Like I said yesterday – what the Dems have accomplished is two part – created a list of candidates who won’t be able to dodge their stand on the bill – now people know who to vote against.  And second, as more days go on, you will see more and more parts of this bill exposed for what it is.  No “Distortion”, no “fear”.  The hard facts will be right there – and each one exposed will be that many more people who are going to stepping up to join the fight in November.

Let them have their “victory” – but only a fool would proclaim victory while the opposing forces still have the field, and are getting stronger each day.

What Will I Be Doing?


The lady in the cartoon asks a very good question…

No, I don’t plan on “seething”.   What I plan on doing is very simple – continue to blog, continue to raise campaign funds, and continue to work to seeing a certain 219 incumbents have to turn in their office keys.
