Oh, those weapons you were kind enough to tell us you had? Yeah, we changed our minds, you can’t have those any more.

This dude was a plant. Little doubt in my mind.
The NBC evening news [spit!] dutifully “reported” that few hecklers get so close to the POTUS. IIRC, I think they said that he was “invited”, which from what I can gather, means that the whole crowd was invited, and presumably subject to at least minimal vetting. (Also, as I search news articles for this story, I see some outlets are scrubbing the word “invited” from the text.)
Upon hearing this, I immediately became convinced this supposed heckler was a plant.
- The heckler acts as an aesthetic foil, an angry voice countered by Obama’s calmness.
- The heckler acts as a sympathetic character, who Obama can agree with on substance.
- The heckler allows Obama to lie about following the law in a context unrelated to wanton lawlessness with Obamacare.
- The heckler acts as a distraction from Obamacare, serving as a pivot vehicle.
And he just happened to get close to the President at this event…
A little dose of reality.
Some are talking about a generational rejection of the liberal agenda. Call me unconvinced.
Latest RCP average of the generic congressional vote.
If the manifest failure of the namesake project of the liberal god-king Obama is not enough to get Republicans better than parity with Democrats, doesn’t that mean we’re still screwed?
So the leftists in Wisconsin lost and now they’re using as much of the state apparatus as they control to try to not let it happen again.
If it’s as bad as it looks, some people need to go to jail, including everyone involved with this “investigation”/intimidation campaign.
Americans learned in the IRS political targeting scandal that government enforcement power can be used to stifle political speech. Something similar may be unfolding in Wisconsin, where a special prosecutor is targeting conservative groups that participated in the battle over Governor Scott Walker’s union reforms.
RTWT if you don’t have any amphetamines to get your heart rate up.
It’s all secret subpoenas, the people being targeted have to keep their mouths shut. You know, like when any other mafioso takes an interest in your life.

There’s just so much bullshit and dishonesty out there it’s hard to keep track of it all.
I had totally forgotten about this one.
Remember Joe Soptic? No? He was the guy who Minitrue claimed lost his health insurance because of Romney. It was a lie, of course, but it was BIG NEWS!!!!!!
So now we have some tens of millions of people losing their health insurance because of Obama and nary a peep. “Just a small percentage”.
I hate the media. Previously, the only person I could really say I hated was the Arafish, but I’ve come to hate those motherfuckers with all my, black, cold, heart. They’re gleefully, proudly and smugly aiding and abetting the destruction of the American Experiment in self rule.

Democratic officials said top administration aides got a close-up view of the cancellation controversy last week, when Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., said at a closed-door meeting of the party’s rank and file that his son had received notice his coverage was being terminated.
The latest White House weasel word in defense of Obama “misspeaking” about folks keeping their insurance plans is “substandard”. As in, “You shouldn’t want to keep your substandard plan anyway.”
This is a rather slick tautology. The plans are “sub-standard” in that they are below the legal standard — the Obamacare standard. So when people complain that they were kicked off their plan because it didn’t meet the Obamacare criteria, it is a semantically null defense to say that the plan was “substandard”.
Of course it is substandard. Obamacare defined the standard, and that is the very thing about which people are complaining.
“Substandard” is particularly weaselly because in addition to having the precise meaning of being below the standard, it has a looser connotation of being of poor quality. Not all substandard plans are of poor quality, but they’d like you to think so while repeating a technically accurate word.
And regarding idea that the POTUS “misspoke” (several dozen times), I think it’s time the GOP bring back a word that was used effectively against Bush: “misled”.
Somehow this guy finds new and interesting ways to make me hate him even more, almost every single day.
Shutdown Theatre has surpassed the ridiculous and is well into the ludicrous/plaid.
The open-air Vietnam memorial is now (sorta) closed.
Private businesses in national park areas are being cordoned off despite having never been closed during previous shutdowns.
Wow. Just wow.
I’m seeing stray reports that GOP House members are talking about shifting from the continuing resolution to the debt ceiling. While I appreciate the never-say-die sentiment, this makes zero sense.
The debt ceiling is a bigger bomb than the CR. If the Vichy Republicans are unwilling to have a little ol’ government shutdown over the CR, they will absolutely shit their pants at the prospect of hitting the debt ceiling.
It ain’t happening. The CR is the only way we’re going to get any significant concessions.
