How's that Stimulus working for you?

Some people say this isn't a stimulus bill. It's a spending bill. What do you think a stimulus is?! Seriously! That's the point.
- Barack Obama, February 2009

Anyone with a rudimentary understanding of economics and how to balance a checkbook scratched their heads on that one. If you were one of them, be careful you don't create a baldspot after watching this.

Yes, he said the stimulus is working.

As unemployment climbs toward double digits and Americans watch helplessly as their corrupt congress just keeps signing more tax bills, Obama tells everyone everything is moving in the right direction. Why not? As long as it doesn't, he blames the last administration and when it does what he claims he wants it to do, he'll take credit.

Problem is that he's squandering all of our credit and there won't be any left for him to take.

Kincaid: U.S. and U.N. Aligning with Communists

Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy In Media pulls no punches when it comes to his take on the Obama administration's stance on Honduras. Not only does he make the case that Obama has chosen the wrong side of this issue but he refers to Obama's alliance with the United Nations as a "plot" with respect to insisting on Honduras' ousted president Manuel Zelaya be reinstated.

The people of Honduras are pleading for media fairness and understanding of how they saved their democratic system of government from an international conspiracy based in Venezuela and Cuba. In desperate messages to the outside world, Hondurans want America to know they do not want former President Manuel "Mel" Zelaya returned to power through the intervention of the United States and the United Nations.

On Tuesday the leftist governments of Barack Obama and Hugo Chavez sponsored a United Nations resolution that condemned the people of Honduras for resisting the spread of communism by evicting a would-be dictator. Many people in Honduras view "Mel" as a puppet of Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, who is destroying the democratic system and the opposition in that country.

Read the entire article....

The media bias on this issue just might trump "THE THRILL" that shot up Chris Matthews' leg after hearing Obama speak. The real issue in Honduras relative to Zelaya's ouster is not even being referenced by the "MainStreamMedia".

If Kincaid is right, Obama is not just appeasing communist dictators - he's aligning with them.

Obama's Honduras Problem

For those of you who tire of seeing White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs fumble and bumble about whenever he's asked questions that don't leave any room for spin, give thanks that you are not seeing his #2 giving the daily press briefings - Deputy White House Press Secretary Bill Burton.

The key to winning a debate is to take the strongest argument / view held by the opposition and totally discredit or rebut it with facts and persuasive arguments of your own. Bill Burton doesn't even come close to that in this video exchange with Juan Williams (h/t to hot air).

Again, the Obama administration is digging in its heels over a position that doesn't even address the most fundamental issue in the ouster of Honduras' president Manuel Zelaya, which was Zelaya's blatant rejection of his country's constitution by attempting to force his forbidden re-election down the throats of his people with an illegal referendum.

Teaming up to remove Zelaya was his country's Supreme Court, its Legislative Branch, and its military. Yet all these whack job spokesmen like Bill Burton want to talk about is restoration of a democracy that would cease being such if the Obama administration has its way.

A democratically elected president who proceeds to shred his country's constitution in order to assume additional powers not granted by that constitution is no longer presiding over a democracy. Instead, he has made himself a dictator. When branches within that government remove said president in order to protect that constitution, is it really a coup, Mr. Burton?

HEY BILLY, Democracies like the ones you claim to champion necessarily include a president that abides by the law as set forth in his country's constitution!

Instead, Burton (as Obama's mouthpiece) chooses to ignore an inconvenient fact he absolutely cannot rebut and instead focuses on Zelaya being ripped from his home while wearing nothing but his pajamas (awwwww). Nor does he address the charges that Zelaya is little more than a Hugo Chavez puppet who enjoys friendly alliances with the Castro brothers and Daniel Ortega.

Bill Burton almost makes Gibbs look like a boy scout by comparison. In fact, Burton spins arguments that are so ponderous, I'll bet James Carville rolls his eyes at them. Burton is so shameless that he reminds me of that clowny spokesman for ACORN (oh, I'm sorry - Community Organizations International).

Remember this lizard?

The Nixon Insult: Helen Thomas to Robert Gibbs

For those of us who have seen right through Obama's notion of transparency for quite some time now, it's a bit interesting to watch the proverbial "light" go on in the head of a staunch longtime liberal veteran like Helen Thomas while challenging Robert Gibbs about staged questions at Obama's town hall meeting.

The video of the tag-team exchange between Thomas, Chip Reid, and Robert Gibbs is one you'll find yourself watching more than once because the apoplexy on the faces of three different people for over three minutes is palpable.

However, the real zinger came from Helen Thomas AFTER the press briefing, when she actually gave Nixon some posthumous props while talking to CNSNews by saying the 37th president met a higher standard in the field of information control (Insert Dragnet music here)...

“Nixon didn’t try to do that,” Thomas said. “They couldn’t control (the media). They didn’t try. What the hell do they think we are, puppets?”

For some reason, reading that brought back a line from Bruce Willis in the movie, "Die Hard" when he finally got the traffic cop's attention...
