Listen up, Obama: I will not pay for Suzy Creamcheese's
$212,000 George Washington University "Education"

Obama is bailing out the current student loan crowd, by executive order. Or in other words, he hopes to buy as many votes as possible in 2012 from the 33 million voters who are under 30.

Here's how it works. Sad, sad Suzy Creamcheese decided to major in Art History at George Washington University, borrowing $212,000. Evidently Suzy was not conversant with the meaning of the term "borrow." Since her Art History degree makes her virtually unemployable in her field, Suzy decides to heed Big O's call for public service where she takes a service job making $25,000 a year (recall, Suzy has a debt of $212,000, which doesn't even count the credit card debt she ran up when she was living large for four years at school).

Enter Obama with his new plan to bail out the 36 million "students" with school loans. Under his plan, based on her income, Suzy's payments will be limited to $1,411 a year after the $10,890 of poverty-level income is subtracted from her total exposure. Unlike Obama and his Team (TM), and also I'm just guessing, unlike Suzy, who voluntarily took out the $212,000 loan to attend four years at college, I can do math. Since O's plan will limit the life of the loan to 20 years, and since Suzy will be paying less than $1,500 per year on the loan, that means that taxpayers (that is, you and me) will recoup from our little Suzy a grand total of $28,220 on her $212,000 loan. HEY KIDS, FREE MONEY! How cool is that?

Can I get a deal like this? I want to buy a $212,000 second home. I want to pay about $100 a month for it, and I'd really like my obligation for paying off the loan to end after 20 years, because after all, by that time I'll be up in years and I'll want to be spending my money on other things. I'll have paid off less than $30,000 on that loan, but I think that should be plenty. So what government program can I sign up for that will cut me that deal?

Now if Suzy can also get Obama to give her a plan by executive order to forgive her credit card debt, she will be in jake shape. That shouldn't be hard, since Obama's justification for the student bailout is this: since these nitwits will now have more money to spend every month (save?--are you stupid?), that money will juice the economy. So just forgive all their debt why don't you, Barry, and then our economy will burn right along.

Obama, you fracking jerk. And yet we have no one but ourselves to blame, as he told us he was going to fundamentally change this country.

h/t to Chris Stirewait for the numbers at "Obama Taps Taxpayers for Student Loans,"

Update. It's all here at Michelle Obama's Mirror's Blog, the best blog in the blogosphere. Hi-larious, if you can stop crying.

Update #2. See the article A college-loan scam posted at the New York Post. The staggering inflation in the cost of higher education since the federal government got involved in lending money to Americans for college in 1965 beggars description. One federal study found that between 1982 and 2007, tuition costs rose 432 percent while family income rose only 147 percent.

"Who Are You With?" --Seriously?

Jason Mattera from Human Events, asking Biden if he regretted the rape language he used when defending O's "jobs" bill. Clearly Biden doesn't like isn't used to being asked the tough questions. Look at the finger-poke to the chest that he gives to Mattera: "Don't screw around with me." But the best line comes at the very end, when the screechy-voiced woman Biden-handler asks Mattera, "Who are you with?"

Hilariously, Biden's "defense" of O's bill is that "murder is up, rape is up, burglarly is up." So crime is "up" in the Obama administration, according to Joe Biden. The O administration is admitting here that their law enforcement efforts are so bad that crime is up on their watch. This stuff just writes itself for the Republicans. Uncle Joe, you're a gaffe a minute!

Delicious Irony of the Day (maybe the whole year)

I know, I said I couldn't post on these OWS maroons, but seriously, this article from the NYPost is just too good to pass up: "Thieves preying on fellow protesters." And these people who are occupying someone else's property and say they have no intention of leaving are SHOCKED that someone is stealing their stuff.

Oh, boo hoo. Who could have seen this coming? "Packs of brazen crooks" have infiltrated the WTF/OWS, robbing their "fellow demonstrators" of pricey cameras, phones, laptops, donated cash, and food. One of them was whining that she had her $5,500 Mac stolen. Another was robbed of his "special bed" that he'd brought with him because of his bad back. No, you can't make this stuff up.

Security volunteer Harry Wyman, 22, has "vowed to get tough" with the predators. What's he going to do--whine them into submission? Gee, here's an idea: CALL THE COPS. I bet they'll be happy to rush right down and help out. Your best bet might be to ask Obama to send some goons who will beat beat up these thieves so that you don't have to get your precious little hands dirty. RENDITION FOR OWS! Heh.

So here's a question: Why aren't these people thrilled about fellow demonstrators taking what they "need"? You would think that they would be happy to be "giving something back" to people who obviously don't have what they have. From each according to their ability; to each according to their need. Right? Obviously the guy who stole the $5,500 Mac didn't have one and needed the one he found on the ground, so he took it. So what's her complaint, exactly? She wants to take money out of my pocket because she "needs" it to pay for her college loans, so how is people "taking" money, cash, beds, phones, etc. from her any different? Oh, and what's the chance that she actually paid for that Mac out of money from a student loan that she never intends to repay? I'm guessing about 99%.

Update. As long as I'm posting about the P-OWS, I might as well post a link to an article at American Thinker: "OWS links." Thomas Lifson has written this article, saying that the movement is a "serious, orchestrated effort, promoted by media anxious to counter the growth of the tea parties. It bears the closest possible scrutiny."

In the article are links for these categories:

Obama's Presidency Is Imploding

Now if only the MSM would report on it--but make no mistake, with the help of the MSM or not, O is going down. And the MSM can go down right along with him, as far as I'm concerned. Reading around the internet about what's going on with the Obama administration these days, it's possible to believe he won't even last until 2012.

This morning Drudge has a picture perfect example of the difference three years makes in people's attitudes about our Affirmative Action President.

Here's an Obama rally, Pittsburgh 2008:

And here's the latest Obama rally, Pittsburgh 2011. The difference is so obvious, even oblivious, narcissistic O must be able to see it.

An article came out in the Washington Post the other day titled "Obama, the loner president." It could just as easily been titled "Obama the Loser." If you read the entire article, you get the impression that the young writer (Scott Wilson) was trying in some way to compliment, or at the very least, excuse O for his very odd style, "enduring with little joy" the people smarts that most politicians are so good at. The article begins well enough, but then it veers off onto a course where he seems to be trying to excuse O's strange behavior. The article was mainly confused and very much inside-the-beltway twaddle. However, it's interesting that any such article would appear in the WP.

A better article is one posted today at American Thinker: "The Obama Problem," by Monty Pelerin. "President Obama's political career is in free-fall. He will not be reelected. Many Democrats and media personalities now understand what appeared impossible even mere months ago. . . . To put matters in perspective, it took George Bush almost eight years to hit bottom. And Bush always had little support from the media, a force that continues to protect Obama." The article continues: "President Obama is little more than a run-of-the-mill Hollywood extra hired to play president of the United States. A brilliant marketing campaign coupled with the perfect storm put him in office. . . . the "man with no past." .... Obama's only strength was Axelrod's ability to play on the imagination of voters. That strength no longer exists. . . . Richard Nixon was never liked, but he was at least thought competent. Obama was liked but was never competent." etc.

Then recently there was a very disturbing piece about Obama becoming increasingly isolated, even within his own administration: "Aimless Obama walks alone," in the New York Post. "The reports are not good, disturbing even. I have heard basically the same story four times in the last 10 days, and the people doing the talking are in New York and Washington and are spread across the political spectrum. The gist is this: President Obama has become a lone wolf, a stranger to his own government. He talks mostly, and sommetimes only, to friend and advisor Valerie Jarrett and to David Axelrod, his political strategist." This sort of thing makes a person hope that there are people responsible for watching this guy and GETTING HIM OUT if his pathology gets out of control.

Then there's the current Ulsterman Report from White House Insider: "They Are Cumbling in Amongst Themselves." At first these reports from Ulsterman were simply amusing; however, as the things reported on were found more and more to be true, the credibility of these reports has increased along with their very troubling nature. "Regarding the dynamics of the White House at this time it is same as it ever was which is batsh-t crazy 24/7 there." He paints a portrait of Michelle Obama that is hardly flattering (no surprise): "those inside know she is as big a potential liability as anything associated with the administration. They are using her in controlled environments only. That's the word from on high." --Which goes along with yesterday's report that FLOTUS was leading a "jumping jacks" challenge out on the White House South Lawn. I mean really, I guess she can't get herself or the administration into too much trouble doing that. Just once I would like to see this woman interacting with a white child. Consistently, however, she is shown surrounded only by non-white children. It hardly matters, though, since this woman has made herself such an irrelevancy with her "fashion icon" status, her expensive trips taken at taxpayers' expense, and her refusal to engage in any meaningful way with her position as First Lady. Seriously, who would have thought that the nation's first African American First Lady would be such a nonentity?

Here she is doing her "Eleanor Roosevelt does exercise" imitation. Seriously, what's with that hair? The Black Eleanor Roosevelt is the only thing that comes to mind. Michelle, you are no Eleanor Roosevelt.

Update. The news this morning, Wednesday, is that Rep. Darrell Issa has subpoenaed Att Gen Eric Holder in the "Fast and Furious" investigation. Issa's letter to holder was nuclear. Now this: "Top Justice Department officials, including Attorney General Holder, know more about Operation Fast and Furious than they have publicly acknowledged," Issa's statement read. "The documents this subpoena demands will provide answers to questions that Justice officials have tried to avoid since this investigation began eight months ago. It's time we know the whole truth."

Then there's an article about another failed solar panel company that received government funds: "SunPower: Twice as Bad as Solyndra, Twice as Bad for Obama." This failing company received a $1.2 billion federal loan guarantee. Just how many failures and scandals does it take to remove a Democrat president? I guess we'll find out.

Radical, Out-of-control, Obscenity-slinging Tea Partiers
Inflict Their Racist Torch Parade on St. Louis /

And here's an example of one of the extremists in the crowd. h/t to Jim Hoft at GatewayPundit for the photo.

President Obama came to our town last night to raise more dough for his re-election campaign. Good thing Obama doesn't have a day job, since we know what kind of a work ethic the guy has--you wouldn't expect him to be working night and day, would you? Tom Carnahan, brother of failed Senate candidate Robin and Representative Russ Carnahan, spawn of a well-connected Missouri Democrat family (children of Mel Carnahan, former Missouri governor and the Widow Carnahan, who replaced her husband--oh, those Carnahans), hosted a $25,000-per-person fundraiser on Tuesday night at his home in St. Louis city. Tom Carnahan was awarded $107 million of stimulus dollars for his Missouri wind farm, Lost Creek Farm, so the fundraiser was a "Thank you, Obama" event--or "pay for play," if you will.

The St. Louis Tea Party was there to greet the President.

Rush Limbaugh, a Missouri native, was all over the Carnahan fundraiser, calling it a "money laundering operation. Tom Carnahan gets money from Obama for a fake solar company and then hosts a fundraiser for Obama. . . . So what Obama has done, and numerous times, is generate campaign contributions that are taxpayer dollars." You can read the entire transcript of Lindbaugh's remarks here.

Update. In a related story, discounted access to First Lady Michael Obama is being sold for an upcoming D.C. fundraiser for Barry Soetoro's re-election campaign. Originally asking $1,000, access to the self-absorbed FLOTUS has been marked down to $250. "Make a contribution of any amount today so your commitment can be represented in the financials that pundits will be dissecting in the weeks ahead." Snort.

TeaCon Midwest this Weekend

If you haven't heard about it, this is what's going on this weekend in Chicago: TeaCon Midwest, bringing together "Tea Party activists, conservatives, and like-minded citizens from around the Midwest for a unique event that will seek to educate, inspire, and activate."

Here's a link at HotAir to the kickoff by Steven Crowder. This guy is hilarious and of course politically incorrect, which evidently continues to twist up the sad sacks on the Left who have no sense of humor about themselves or anyone else, judging from what they have to say about him.

Don't even bother googling "teacon midwest 2011," since Google will take you to HuffingtonPost, which of course is exactly my go-to site for information about this event. Google sucks.
