“I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message.”

Mitt Romney Looks For Way to Attack Obama on Healthcare Ruling

NEWS

Republicans: “Et tu John Roberts?”

“I thought he [Roberts] was the champion of limited government.” –  Rep. Joe Wilson (R-TX)

Could Republicans Really Repeal Obamacare?

“Attention white people of America! Fear not yesterday’s Supreme Court decision upholding ‘Obamacare’. Once we get the wire transfer from our corporate masters, we will repeal not only this law, but the Supreme Court, Eric Holder and Kim and Kanye too. Sieg Heil!” 

GOP Governors Refuse to Enact Affordable Care Law

Eric Holder Contempt of Congress Vote

Holder: “Hey arsonist and auto thief, excuse me, alleged arsonist and auto thief, what’s your problem?” Issa: “I don’t like you or your boss because you’re black, good-looking and smart.” Holder: “Yo mama likes me.”

“Mmmm. Which team do I screw over this year?”

RANDOM THOUGHTS

Well, at least we know what every morning news show and panel will be talking about this Sunday. That’s right, the inevitable break-up of Katie Holmes and her dwarf husband, Tom Cruise.

Passing Civil Rights legislation in the 1960s wasn’t viewed as the “popular” thing to do either, but thank God that for whatever his reasons, Lyndon Baines Johnson, a Southerner himself, knew it was the RIGHT and JUST thing to do and he pushed for its passage and subsequent signing into law. And thank God for Barack Obama having the conviction and moral standing to do what he knows is the RIGHT and JUST thing to do.

Hardcore Truth: Even if Mitt Romney is elected president and Republicans retain the House and retake the Senate, they won’t have the 60 votes in the Senate to repeal the Affordable Care Law that was upheld by the Supreme Court on Thursday. But that’s no excuse for not getting out the vote this November!

This was the stupidest thing I heard while flipping through right-wing talk radio Thursday – a caller said, very seriously I might add, that the reason for Chief Justice Roberts’ vote was that it was a payback for his having screwed up the oath of office during President Obama’s swearing-in 3 years ago. The sad thing is that the host, I don’t know his name, said, “Friend, you might be on to something.”

Barack Obama was president the first time the country’s credit rating was downgraded. Eric Holder is the first Attorney General to be held in contempt of Congress. Both men are African-American. Coincidence? I think not.

Let me see if I’ve got this right: Republicans nominated for president, Mitt Romney, who as governor of Massachusetts campaigned for, crafted and signed into law a healthcare reform bill that the person who drafted the bulk of it used as a template for the Affordable Healthcare Act that Romney today repudiated and promised to “repeal and replace” if elected president, the same law that was found to be found constitutional by the US Supreme Court – a court headed by the conservative movement’s favorite justice John Roberts, who by the way, just happened to write the majority opinion – Thursday in a 5-4 ruling, and who, if given the chance, promises to appoint more justices like Roberts. Did I miss anything in this litany of “Ironically Speaking”?

Here is the list of things that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney agree on: The sun rises in the East and sets in the West.

Try wrapping your mind around this one for a minute: Mitt Romney is pledging to repeal EXACTLY what he campaigned for and signed into law when he was governor of Massachusetts if he’s elected president.

Something to remember when deciding who to vote for on November 6: the first bill President Obama signed into law was the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Meanwhile, earlier today, Republican nominee Mitt Romney said, “On my first day if elected president of the United States…I will act to repeal Obamacare.”

It’s going to be very interesting to see where Tyler Perry’s latest Madea film ranks when this weekend’s box-office totals are announced on Sunday.

You are Michael “Air” Jordan, arguably the greatest basketball player of all-time. You should be concerned that your stock as an NBA owner/executive has fallen so far that your team taking the second-best player in the draft with the second pick was viewed as stunning by most media observers and fans.

Lamar Odom back to the Clippers is either an inspired move or the stupidest thing in team history and considering this is the team that once drafted Michael Olawakandi – described by his former coach Alvin Gentry as a “pussy” – that’s saying something.

With last night’s loss to the Mets – the 8th in their last 9 games – the Dodgers officially entered the “Hurry Back Matt Kemp” phase of the season.

I still saying signing Albert Pujols at 32 or 35 or whatever his real age is (I lean to 35), to a 10-year contract was a stupid thing for the Angels to do and I’ll believe that even if they win the World Series this year or next.

I wonder if Kim Kardashian’s p***y has a lobby with a sign-in sheet or you just take a number.

CLOSING THOUGHT

While Thursday was a great day for the Affordable Care Act aka “Obamacare”, the president & White House and whether they realize it or not, the American people, there’s no way Democrats and other supporters of President Obama can rest easy or take it anything for granted. Because, if anything, the forces of evil that have already massed and continue massing against the president’s re-election are more energized and determined than before yesterday’s Supreme Court decision. So, if you support President Obama and want to see him win on November 6, along with as many Democratic incumbents and candidates for both the House and Senate, get up off your butts and do something to make sure it happens.

be constitutional by the US Supreme Court – a court headed by the conservative movement’s favorite chief justice John Roberts who by the way just happened to write the majority opinion – today in a 5-4 ruling, and who, if given the chance, promises to appoint more justices like Roberts.
