Republicans are talking about passing legislation to shortcut the automatic spending triggers built in to the Deficit Reduction Supercommittee’s failure to come up with a plan. President Obama is having none of it. From this afternoon:
In September, I sent them a detailed plan that would have gone above and beyond that goal. It’s a plan that would reduce the deficit by an additional $3 trillion, by cutting spending, slowing the growth of Medicare and Medicaid, and asking the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share.
Only on Fox News and the pages of the Wall Street Journal are PUMA-inciters Douglas Schoen and Patrick Caddell considered “Democrats”. Nevertheless, Fox and the WSJ trot them out from time to time to show the world that there is disharmony in the ranks of liberals and Democrats. The fact is, however, despite their resumes, these two are no more Democrats than my cat Spooky (who is pretty Libertarian, just sayin’…)
The latest effluvient from these two is an editorial in the WSJ today saying that there is no way that President Barack Obama can govern when he wins in 2012 so the president should just step aside right now and let the real leader of the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton take center stage.…
Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, the dude who took a pot shot at the White House last Friday has been charged with attempted assassination of President Obama.
Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, of Idaho Falls, Idaho, made his first court appearance before a federal magistrate in Pittsburgh on Thursday, one day after he was arrested at a western Pennsylvania hotel. He will be taken back from a federal court in Pittsburgh to face the charges in Washington, D.C.
More We Can’t Wait awesomeness from the Obama White House:
Building on President Obama’s historic national program, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) today formally unveiled their joint proposal to set stronger fuel economy and greenhouse gas pollution standards for Model Year 2017-2025 passenger cars and light trucks.
In case any of us are laboring under any misconceptions about the fact that our president is basically in mortal danger just doing his job, this news from Associated Press is a wake-up call:
An additional round of ammunition was also found on the exterior of the White House. The bullets were found Tuesday.
The discovery follows reports of gunfire near the White House on Friday. Witnesses heard shots and saw two speeding vehicles in the area. An AK-47 rifle was also recovered.
Politicians always talk about “trimming waste” in government. The Obama administration shows ‘em how it’s done. Almost $18 billion-with-a-”B” in savings this year alone (and 2011 ain’t over yet.) Over $20 billion since 2010.
And more to come, thanks to a new Executive Order, part of the President’s ongoing “We Can’t Wait” initiative where he’s taking action Congress just can’t seem to get around to.
President Obama is on a tear lately. Under the banner “We Can’t Wait”, he is using Executive Orders to accomplish things that Congress is unable or unwilling to do themselves. The latest salvo is cutting government waste.
Check this out:
That single graphic conveys an enormous amount of information about President Obama’s jobs plan in comparison with the “jobs plan” of the Republicans.
This is the kind of stuff they need to be doing year-round, not just during campaign season. LOVE it.

Senate Republicans today blocked a vote on yet another one of the components of President Obama’s jobs plan today. This one would have invested $60 billon in building and repairing our nation’s crumbling infrastructure and was fully paid for by a 0.7% (!!!) surcharge on income over $1 million. A bridge too far for Republicans, apparently.
Supporters of the failed measure said it would have created tens of thousands of construction jobs and lifted the still-struggling economy.
