Obama creates new national monument

 President Barack Obama is creating a new national monument. Think Progress reports that it's a Civil War fort.  Instead, how about a giant hole dedicated to the memory of all those innocent billions of dollars sunk in Obama's failed stimulus?

Who's trying to stain Herman Cain?

Herman Cain has  now specifically denied inappropriate behavior while he was with a  restaurant trade group. 
  Meanwhile, we must draw our own conclusions about  the source of the smear. Logic suggests the Dems would have kept their powder dry in case he was  confirmed as the GOP candidate.   Who could  possibly gain by  it now?  Just askin'...

The smears begin against Cain

We were warned  that the  2012 presidential race would be be the mother of all dirty campaigns. It has started already with a claim  that complaints of "inappropriate" behavior were made against Herman Cain in the 1990s.  On the bright side, it's better for the Hermanator  to deal with this now rather than later.  More here.

Obama skirts his own ban on money from lobbyists

Skirting a his own pledge not to take money from lobbyists, President Obama has  used prominent supporters active in the lobbying industry to raise millions of dollars for his re-election bid, says  this report in The New York Times.  Our  eagle-eyed  New York correspondent   alerted us last night  to  these breaking revelations which  enabled us to be beat the  Times and  most of the blogosphere with our  3.47 a.m. post here

Lobbyists 'still bankrolling Obama'

"We don't accept any money from special-interest groups or Washington lobbyists," the Obama campaign bragged in a recent email touting the $70 million raised last quarter by the campaign and the Democratic National Committee. But if you comb through the actual filings with the Federal Elections Commission, you see how misleading this claim is, says The Washington Examiner.  More here.

Some Americans put their money where Warren's mouth is

Britain 'must now exit the EU'

The hard-won agreement to avoid a European implosion has dramatic  implications for America's closest ally. Julian Lindley-French, a distinguished strategic analyst, says the agreement is a bridge too far for Britain: "For someone who has spent much of his adult life believing in the essential unifying mission of Europe it is with the most profound sadness that I now call on Britain to leave the European Union. To save Greece, Britain has been sacrificed and given the stakes there was little alternative. However, for Britain to stay now would simply heap humiliation upon cost without influence and my proud, old, badly-led country deserves better than that." Read it all.

Obama and the scrofulous hordes

AP has a report on growing disgust  and impatience with OWS protesters around country. There is an interesting exception. AP reports: "In Washington, protesters ... appear to be getting along with the police and the neighbors. One activist, Wes Kirkpatrick, said he believes the demonstration in McPherson Square is benefiting from its location just blocks from the White House, and he does not expect the federal government to crack down. "It would be hypocritical for Obama to do anything because he legitimized our grievances publicly," he said.  As we know, Obama is never hypocritical.

US begins total troop pull-out from Iraq

Mission not accomplished: President Obama has announced that all US troops will be pulled out of Iraq by the Holidays.  Political expediency going into an election year appears to be the main motivation for a total pull-out: US military officials  reportedly wanted to leave a force of 5,000 as trainers and to help deter Iran from interfering in the country. The stumbling block is said to have been refusal by Iraq to give US soldiers immunity from prosecution under Iraqi laws.
Given the extreme likelihood  of covert or overt incursions from Iran, and Iraq's need for continued US funding and  military hardware, it's hard to believe more pressure couldn't  have overcome this. But our leader is not exactly famed for tough negotiating.  ABC News has details

What Steve Jobs told Obama

"You're headed for a one-term presidency," Steve Jobs told Obama at the start of a meeting of the two men, adding that the administration needed to be more business-friendly. As an example, Jobs described the ease with which companies can build factories in China compared with the United States, where "regulations and unnecessary costs" make it difficult. These details are revealed in an official biography, by Walter Isaacson.
Jobs also criticized America's education system, saying it was "crippled by union work rules," noted Isaacson. "Until the teachers' unions were broken, there was almost no hope for education reform." Jobs proposed allowing principals to hire and fire teachers based on merit, that schools stay open until 6 p.m. and that they be open 11 months a year. The Huffington Post has more

As expected, President Obama is suggesting breaking the bill into smaller pieces. The problem is apparently that the American Jobs Act is simply too much blinding brilliance for simple-minded Republicans (and a couple of Democrats) to comprehend in a single bill. The problem for Obama is, of course, that the opponents of the bill understand it too much — not too little."

Protest perils for the Corporatist-in-Chief

Interesting insight from Dick Morris: "The fact is that Obama is less a socialist than a corporatist. His objective is not government ownership, but government management. To control the economy — and all of our lives — he needs to get rid of small banks and small business and consolidate it all in a few big banks and big corporations; hence his friendliness to Goldman-Sachs and General Motors. When wealthy tycoons go to dinners and give Obama $35,000 donations, they know what they are doing. It is not liberal Democratic masochism at work, it is a conscious investment in central planning where big labor, big government, big business and big banks meet and divvy up the pie..."
