Archive for November, 2010
Billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump said in October that he is “absolutely thinking about” running for president — and a new poll shows that he would garner strong support if he did.
Star magazine asked its readers: “Donald Trump says he may run for president in 2012. Would you vote for him?”
The result: 71 percent said yes, just 29 percent said no.
The Star poll confirms the results of a recent Newsmax/SurveyUSA poll that showed Trump within striking distance of defeating President Barack Obama in a head-to-head race for the presidency.
The entrepreneur received nearly half the vote, 47 percent. Trump polled strongly among Republicans and conservatives, and got 50 percent of the vote among independents.
Billionaire pharmaceuticals mogul Stewart Rahr, who wants to persuade his friend Trump to challenge Obama in 2012, cited the Star and Newsmax polls in an e-mail to potential supporters that was posted on a Forbes magazine blog.
Rahr wrote: “Donald as many of us know is a natural born leader with outstanding ability to inspire others and to accomplish impossible tasks.”

President Obama was urged by the few White House insiders from whom he still takes advice to leave the country on his ten-day Asian trip, his longest trip abroad since becoming president, in order to not inflict any more damage to the Democratic Party in the wake of one of the worst electoral defeats for the party of an incumbent president in recent history. According to sources close to the White House, who put themselves in great danger by even talking to members of the media, the plans to have Obama leave for a visit to India, Pakistan, Indonesia, South Korea, and Japan are an attempt to get Obama out of the country while top Democrats can sort through the political disaster created for the party by Obama’s increasingly detached-from-reality presidency.
Virtual political guerrilla warfare has broken out between Obama’s inner circle on one hand and senior Democratic officials, including outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Party strategist James Carville, former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean, and, behind-the-scenes, Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton, on the other.
Top Democrats are still reeling from Obama’s bizarre behavior at a $7500-a-plate fundraiser at a stately mansion at Brown University in Rhode Island on October 25. The fundraiser, organized by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, was supposed to highlight Democratic Party unity. However, while Obama endorsed Democratic House candidate David Cicilline for outgoing Representative Patrick Kennedy’s seat, the president failed to endorse Democratic gubernatorial candidate Frank Caprio over Republican-turned-independent former Senator Lincoln Chafee. Obama’s lack of an endorsement for a Democrat over a former Republican prompted Caprio to tell a radio show host that Obama “could take his endorsement and really shove it as far as I’m concerned.”
Later that day, Obama briefly appeared at the fundraiser at Brown University, where Democratic loyalists paid $7500 to hear Obama speak, but departed after only twenty minutes, telling the assembled guests that he had to go back to the White House to “tuck in my daughters, walk the dog, and ‘scoop the poop.'” The Democratic faithful were appalled and shocked at Obama’s quick departure and one of the three reasons he gave for it: to scoop up dog turds as if the President of the United States actually performs such tasks with a phalanx of White House staff and Secret Service agents at his disposal.
Vice President Biden knows too well about Obama’s lack of attention to his daily tasks of being president. The details of the fiasco at Brown soon were conveyed to Biden by his two old Democratic Senate colleagues from Rhode Island: Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse. Biden was not amused about Obama’s dissing of the Democrats in Rhode Island. A week later, Chafee defeated Caprio for the Rhode Island governorship, thanks largely to Obama’s less-than-neutral stance in cutting a secret deal to support Chafee against Caprio.
White House leaks about the ineffectiveness of Obama’s presidency are expandng beyond the revelations attributed to a former high-level Obama administration insider and which have been reported by a blogger named “Ulsterman.” Some White House staffers have described a “reign of terror” in the White House over continued leaks and a troika of leadership that is making decisions without any input from the president. The troika reportedly consists of First Lady Michelle Obama, presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett, and the president’s mother-in-law, Marian Robinson, who resides in the White House.
Not to be deterred, some White House staffers have sought out journalists and have arranged to meet them at nearby Starbuck’s cafes to discretely convey to them inside information about the current disarray within the Obama administration. Some staffers have personally born the brunt of Obama’s temper and witnessed his extreme narcissistic behavior. WMR has also learned from White House sources that Obama is taking presciption anxiety medication.
Vice President Biden, under intense pressure from some Democratic Party officials and Cabinet members to invoke Article 25, Section 4 of the Constitution and have Obama temporarily or permanently removed as president because of his mental incapacity to fulfill his constitutional oath as president is reluctant to take such drastic action. Biden feels that the country would “become unglued” after such action and he doesn’t want to be the one who would be responsible for “picking up the pieces,” according to a source who works within Biden’s office.
Some staffers have said on deep background that the revelations by the ex-White House official to “Ulsterman” are not even half of the story about what is actually occurring in the White House.
However, Biden and other Democratic and adminstration do believe that if Obama were to display some of the same reckless behavior publicly as many White House personnel have witnessed privately, there may be wide support for enactment of the provisions of the 25th Amendment.
Such a public display by Obama that could trigger succession action might involve a public outburst, including the use of foul language or a statement that Obama believes there is a conspiracy against him.
On October 5, Obama was addressing Fortune magazine’s “Most Powerful Women” summit in Washington, DC. During the middle of Obama’s speech, the presidential seal fell off the podium. Publicly, Obama took the incident as a joke, but WMR has learned from White House insiders that Obama went on a tirade after the incident, accusing White House staffers of purposely not anchoring the seal to the podium. The White House supplies all the podiums and seals at all presidential addresses and the seal is usually well-anchored with four screws affixed to the podium. Obama reportedly “freaked out” and accused White House staffers of engaging in a conspiracy against him. The presidential tirade over such a trivial matter was not lost on senior administration officials who have witnessed Obama’s lackadaisical behavior during the consideration of much weightier issues, for example, the war in Afghanistan.
Although some observers believe African-Americans would react negatively to the invocation of the 25th Amendment, WMR has learned that members of the Congressional Black Caucus would reluctantly go along with such a move. Many in their ranks, including outgoing House Judiciary Committee chairman John Conyers (D-MI) were outraged over Obama’s lack of interest in Haiti after that nation’s devastating earthquake. For many black caucus members, it was their first indication that there was something very wrong with Obama and his grasp of reality.
With Obama intent on running for re-election and seriously considering sending White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to replace former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine, the potential Democratic challengers to Obama in 2012 are beginning to stir. WMR has learned that former DNC chairman Howard Dean is seriously considering a challenge to Obama as is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who will reportedly depart Foggy Bottom after Defense Secretary Robert Gates leaves his position, possibly in January.
Several top Democrats consider Obama’s chances to keep the White House in 2012 as slim and they find it fanciful that White House policy adviser David Axelrod is moving back to Chicago to work on Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, an effort many Democratic officials find a “fool’s errand.”
Obama also is disengaged from the plight of his former Senate Democratic colleagues in the wake of their near loss of the Senate with a much-reduced majority. There is pressure on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to step down as Majority Leader. However, Charles Schumer (D-NY), who has been mentioned as a replacement, reportedly has let it be known that he will not carry Obama’s water as Majority Leader and may not want the job after all. The Majority Whip is Dick Durbin (D-IL) but he is seen as part of the Obama Chicago Mafia and almost every Democratic senator agrees on one thing: they do not want Durbin as their Majority Leader. Obama, the titular head of the Democratic Party, has refused to weigh in with any effective leadership as congressional Democrats pick up the pieces and lick their wounds.
Meanwhile, a team of ex-CIA officers are traveling the globe assembling a dossier of documents on Obama’s past, including his education, passport, travel, and residency records. The team has scoured Kenya, Indonesia, Pakistan, and other countries collecting documents that are not already mantained in the CIA’s own files on Obama’s past. There is a possibility, according to WMR’s sources, that any “smoking gun” documents may be released while Obama is in Asia in order to elicit a public and, perhaps, irrational enough response from the president to prompt the public to begin raising questions about Obama’s suitability for office. Such an incident would make it easier for Biden to begin the succession process that was previously considered when President Richard Nixon was drinking heavily and taking prescription medication during the final days of his administration, twice during the Ronald Reagan administration — after the attempted assassination and in 1987 when he demonstrated early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease, and during the Bill Clinton administration, when Clinton’s self-destructive sexual antics had Vice President Al Gore considering taking similar steps.

Think about it a minute…
Everyone seems to be wondering why Muslim terrorists are so quick to commit suicide.
Let’s see now…
- No messiah, no Christmas, no Easter, no Resurrection…
- No television, no nubile cheerleaders in short skirts, no nude women (their women are always covered up with camel tarps)…
- No dragster races, no football, no soccer, no BBQ’d pork spare ribs, no hot dogs, no HAMburgers…
- No chocolate chip cookies, no lobster, no nachos, no Beer nuts, no alcohol, no beer…
- No marijuana, no cocaine, no salvia, no hashish, no heroin, no dope… NO SHIT!
- Rags for clothing and towels for hats.
- Constant wailing from the ass-hole next-door because he’s sick and there aren’t any doctors.
- Constant wailing from the jackass up in the tower calling out to a false god and false prophet…
- On your knees facing east most of the day…
- More than one wife (OMG!!!)…
- Can’t ever shave…
- Your wives can’t shave either…
- Your wives can’t wear makeup, and if they could, you couldn’t see it any-frickin-way…
- You can’t shower to wash off the smell of donkey cooked over burning camel dung…
- Your bride is picked by someone else, and she smells just like your damn donkey (or your camel)…
- Then they tell you that when you die it all gets better! (Yeah right!)
- The only way it gets better is if you commit suicide then they promise you 72 virgins! (Yeah, righ! Where have I heard this crap before?)
Is there REALLY a mystery here?
While Obama is in India, and no doubt using this Sunday to reassess his way forward following this past week’s “shellackin'”…
Dear Mr. Obama,
I’ll at least give you the initial respect of calling you Mr. and by your last name. However, you will never earn my respect to call you my president as long as you remain clueless in your communist mindset.
A lot of folks think that you are still in denial about what happened to you last week.
I know you are.
You, somehow, just can’t accept the fact that this was a repudiation of your communist agenda by the voters. No, I won’t call it “socialist” or “progressive”…
It’s communist: Marxism, through and through.
Hey! I understand: your sychophantic Kool-Aid drinkers in the Great Unwashed will never understand.
Yet, you and your fellow knucklehead DemocRATS still make a big deal out of saying that it was a “communication” problem.
No… it’s not a “communication problem.” We hear you “loud and clear” and we’re just not buying into your bullshit story.
You continue to suggest that the only reason people voted against your side was because we didn’t understand what you’ve done.
I know that’s the spin you would like your ignorant followers to believe, but even they are starting to disavow themselves from your nonsense. Yes, they’re having “buyer’s remorse.” And it’s sticking like a knot in your ass.
We are not really convinced that you’re really that cavalierly writing off the train that rolled over you as a figment of the voters’ collective imagination. No… you know exactly what happened and it aches like a pole impaled up your rear end.
No one likes being “talked down to” like we were a bunch of unruly children. We don’t like being told that our ideas are not good ones.
And let’s face it: In many of the matters you’re dealing with, you really don’t know if your approach is right or wrong, and you’re too smug, proud and arrogant to admit it. Some voters think your approach is brilliant, but that’s because they’re not as brilliant as you think YOU are. And it’s also because you don’t think they’re as brilliant as you are.
Yes, you think we’re all a bunch of stupid hay-seed hicks. I know. But, listen up: if you didn’t hear us last week, we will only speak louder in 2012. And you can take that to the bank. It’s better than a bet at the lottery.
Being right — or thinking you are right — is tricky business. The leader who chooses a bold course and triumphs is hailed as a genius. The one who chooses a bold course and fails is damned as an idiot. Confidence and foolhardiness walk hand-in-hand.
In your case, you have made Jimmy Carter look like a Summa Cum Laude member of Mensa. But, we also know he’s not. He thinks so, but he’s just another one of those hay-seed idiots you so detest.
A political genius? Try Ronald Reagon, and his predecessor Barry Goldwater, were geniuses, politically and historically speaking. History has also redeemed George W. Bush.
Sorry pal… you’re tagged as “in over your head” as Hillary said you were. You’ll never recover from your ineptitude because it is at your own hand that you bring your own demise. Politically speaking, you (and your cronies) are suicidal.
Only, we’re not going to let you take us with you.
If you simply give up on your ideas because they became unpopular, absent ostensible proof that they are wrong, then you really are in denial…of yourself.
Maybe, just maybe, on November 7, 2012, you will wake up and face reality.
We damn sure hope so!
Food for thought:
Wal-Mart versus the Morons in D.C.
1. Americans spend approximately $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart, every hour of every day.
2. That works out to approximately $25,000 every minute!
3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.
4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.
5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, and is the world’s largest private employer.
6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.
7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind that they did this in only fifteen years.
8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.
9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.
10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA, of which 1,906 are Super Centers. This is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.
11. This year, 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. The earth’s population is approximately 6.5 Billion.
12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.
You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.
This should be read and understood by all Americans –
Democrats, Republicans, Independents, EVERYONE!
To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature: It is now official — you are ALL corrupt morons:
a. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 235 years to get it right, and it is broke.
b. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 75 years to get it right, and it is broke.
c. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 72 years to get it right, and it is broke.
d. “War on Poverty” started in 1964. You have had 46 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor” and they only want more.
e. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 45 years to get them right, and they are broke.
f. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 40 years to get it right, and it is broke.
g. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees, with a budget of $24 billion a year, and we import more oil than ever before. You’ve had 33 years to get it right, and it’s an abysmal failure.
You have FAILED in every government “service” you have shoved down our throats, while overspending our tax dollars.
AND NOW, YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM?
MAYBE WE OUGHT TO KICK OBAMA AND HIS CONGRESS OUT OF OFFICE, AND HIRE WAL-MART TO RUN THE GOVERNMENT (At least the Domestic side of it)! WAL MART SEEMS TO KNOW HOW TO RUN A BUSINESS. OUR GOVERNMENT SURE DOESN’T!
