Obama To Admit Defeat (Or Apportion Blame) - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture


At 11:35ET, President Obama will address the nation over how well the sequestration discussions are going. Following this morning's rumor-driven ramp, and Boehner's very recent comments that "discussions are over", we await the President's calming tones or hell-fire conjuring warnings... the question is - how many park rangers will be standing behind the President?

"Anger"?   They're either hen-pecked pussies, or can't get organized worth a shit.  I mean, even on this site, how many ZH'ers can you get to band up on anything?  Much less DO something.  And they talk about the Muslims being fragmented and disorganized.  TPTB (bankers, oligarchs and 'Jews' to many) must be laughing their butts off.  "Anger".  LMAO. 

Like any good writer, the Tylers are putting out 10 lbs of steam, to get 1 lb of results.  Truth is, blogging alone will definitely NOT do it.  Need to take it to the next level:  Local ZH action groups.  Just like they do on some other sites (C. Martensen's Resilient Communities), ZH needs tools for local groups by geogr. proximity.  Either that, or join existing groups on other sites.

If he would just admit that everyone within the Beltway is corrupt and incompetant, it would go a long way for the American people to start believing what their government tells them again.  If he says anything else, expect it to be 110% false.

He's such a lying dickcheese. These aren't even real cuts, he knows it, and yet he stands there and pretends we'll be spending less money next year than this year. His mission in life is to grow the government as big as he possibly can so the State can wield as much power as it possibly can, and the easiest way to do that is to say women, children, and old people will be dying in the streets if we grow the government at X percent a year instead of Y percent.

We can NEVER reduce spending in Obamaland. We can only increase "revenues." Such a cunt.

Never forget--


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."


Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)

Speech Given on U.S. Senate Floor Objecting To Raising Debt Ceiling Limit

March 16, 2006

Official National Debt at that time: 8 trillion USD (Official National Debt Now? 16.2 trillion USD)

Ew, what's that smell?! Government racks up million dollar bill... on AN OUTHOUSE


Ew, what's that smell?! Government racks up million dollar bill... on an outhouse Friday, September 4, 2009, 10:56 AM

What can you get for a million dollars these days?  A yacht, a mansion, diamonds... and an outhouse?!


Yes, you read that right - an outhouse.


ABC News reports that the government spent nearly a million dollars to build a one-seater outhouse in a national park in Pennsylvania.

How did they rack up a million-dollar bill building a poo palace?


They spent $780,000 just building it, which included things like $700-per-pound flower seeds and paint that cost $78-per-gallon.  Plus, more than a dozen National Park Service engineers and architects worked on the project, which cost more than $100,000, and a supervisor lived onsite in Pennsylvania for roughly $80,000, ABC News said.

You think this is just an aberration?  Think again.  The Park Service in Montana racked up a million-dollar bill creating a four-seater outhouse.

Will military contractors no longer get an ocean of money thown at them? Will agencies tasked with 24/7 spying on Americans lose a few staff? And will food stamp leeches need to get a job or up their work hours?

God, this is breaking my heart. CUT the fucking spending! Now!

No, no, NO!  Do you ppl have ADD?  If everyone agrees that (a) we are "past the point on no return", and (b) that the system is so corrupt and broken that we need a crash & reset, then (c) we need to stop with the "Fixit* Hopium" of Austrian Economics.  We need to help this Mutha: Inflate as much and as fast as possible, till it goes kaboom. 

Mr. President, blow this sucker up if you want to tear down this Fed Wall!

The rest of you:  Stop being "just another brick in the wall".  And take those ADD pills.


* My bet is that most ZH'ers are closet Statists, because they keep wanting to "FIX" what they themselves describe in colourful expletives and articulate prose as being Broken, Corrupt, Hopeless and Unfixable.  If the house is a 'wreck', you don't keep repainting or remodelling.  You get out the wrecking ball.  So get the dam wrecking ball already!  Damn ADD-sheep.

He has absolutely no legitimacy over my life. What he has is a facade that allows him to foster coercive violence upon others, in the name of the greater good.

Obummer is NOT the true problem, but a symptom of the underlying disease, the facade of legitimate governance in the hands of third parties.

We see that as a plus, as though it exposes a flaw in Keynesian thinking, but I think this was the goal all along. The economy went to shit, the government stepped on its neck to keep it down, and with a castrated media the statists can now point to government as the only thing keeping us going.

This makes perfect sense once you realize government intervention in the economy was never meant to "save" the private sector; it was only meant to empower the public sector. The idea has been planted in people's minds that we cannot survive by reducing the size of government. Never let a crisis go to waste.

No way.  His dad, Frank Davis, died in Hawaii.  Matter of fact, here is a childhood pic of his half-brother Mark Davis, fathered by Frank Davis and his wife, whereas POTUS was fathered by Frank Davis skanking around with POTUS's teenaged mom.

Note the stunning resemblance even though Mark and Barack are only half-brothers.  I have no doubt POTUS is the son of Frank Davis, the man POTUS identified in his weird bio as a 'father-figure'.

Agreed, but those distinctions do not follow state lines.  Unless you have really lived and travelled around a LOT in the country, it's just a meme to think that the divide follows a north state/south state distribution.

I'd say urban vs. rural is a more likely divide. Rural Illinois, for instance, is the Land of Lincoln, but only to the extent that blacks not be there (see, this slavery "free" state was a racial issue). As a lawyer, the only slave case he ever argued was for the return of slaves to their owner (they escaped when he was illegally working them in his Illinois fields).

Meanwhile, unwitting blacks worship the man who wanted to send them all back to Africa.

Imagine an America where Obam is elected president. Then imagine the opposition party running Romney against him! Or imagine the state of America when Bush left office. The two unfunded wars, the 1.2 trillion dollar budget deficit, the housing bust, the banking crisis, etc. etc.

Fuck the two party system. Those who buy into this "my party will solve the problem" bullshit should think again. These parties are a dog and pony show put on for the rabble to make them think there is a democratic choice. Sure, either party delievers. "Out of control spending, obedience to the banks, war without end, a police state of spies, the trashing of the constitution, an empire, an out of control girant military, you name it and the two parties are the same. So what about a few minor social issues that are none of governments business! That debate is a fake one designed to distract average people from the elite's rape of America.

Fuck the two party system. Fuck Obama! Fuck Bush! Fuck congress on both sides!

Bestest narcissistic moment on camera, EVAR.

His tiny brain wouldn't allow him to say "shame on me."

Although watching him finally return to the WH after 9/11 was classic as well,  giving an impromptu (sans TOTUS) press conference on the lawn. In the first two minutes he had said all of his sound-bites, so was left with nothing to do but to repeat them, mixing them all up along the way.

I am a air force brat and voted for Ronald Reagan when I was 18.  It has taken me the last 10 years to realize that there is no 2 party system.  The Republican establishment is completely disconnected and in fact abhors the conservative base. I for one no longer believe that this country is salvageable. We have few statesman or patriots acting in the best interests of the nation. We have a revolving door of K Street, Wall Street and Washington that has become a plutocracy and with the complete whoring of the 4th estate, we now are movng toward a out right dictatorship (initiated through Martial Law) or a charade of an authoritaria govt. This will only end with a complete reset. The incestuousness of govt, finance, media, entertainment  has destroyed this country.

   All the bad news that's coming for the next six months is totally not my fault and has nothing to do with the fact that the global economy is collapsing. Please ignore the 85 billion a month "only the stock market matters" inflation tax on everything you need so we can continue to bailout the bankers.

The Droner in Chief is an alarmist, lying sack of turd shiners.  One of two things is going to happen:  1) nothing; or 2) tailspin recession 3 to 4 months hence.  Either way, he's going to look like the lying liar that he is.  If nothing happens, he'll be the boy who cried wolf, and further MEANINGFUL cuts will be expected/welcomed.  If everything does blow-up, he'll be held to account for lying to everyone that the recovery was underway in the SOTU.  We won't even talk about the fact that everything is so forked-up that we have to throw $1.5 trillion in borrowed/printed fiatscoes into the economy just to keep the food supply marginally available.

Miffed, I am not sure that the sheep are not in a permament state of fear today.

The only problem is, they fear the wrong things, and don't fear that which they SHOULD be fearing, which is that which most endangers them (which is exacty what is whipping up their fears against what they shouldn't be fearing in the first place).


By the way, I saw how even you were pushed to the edge in our little debate last night.  Don't feel bad about it --- I think you were fully justified, and handled it very well (your last reply was an absolute delight to read).

Sorry but I just had to up arrow that and, therefore, I have become one of your minions. I have never been a follower, minion or toady and don't like to be branded such. Yet since a sniveling worm branded me I take little offense.

Your comment on sheep is spot on. I have experience it literally. Walking up a hiking trail on our sheep ranch last week we encountered sheep and cattle grazing in the higher pasture. The cattle looked at us and grouped their young in the center of the herd and waited for us to walk by, ready to act if we made a threatening move. The sheep ran haphazardly at the sight of us hitting rocks, tripping into gullies and bleating frantically. We commented this to our host and he shook his head " damn stupid little buggers. It's such a pain in the ass keeping them out of trouble". "Sheep" is the most appropriate label to Americans today. I am sadden by that.

Thanks for the support. I really didn't feel too badly about the whole affair. Besides this is fight club and I must face with courage and grace as any warrior. I used to spar with men when I took karate long ago and yes I was fairly banged up most of the time because I refused to back up. My instructor finally near broke my arm once and I did back up. He did this to show me in every fight there is always a time to back up and I must learn this. ZH is certainly a mental venue of the same. I guess what bothered me the most is the smarmy tone of the whole exchange... I almost took a shower afterward. I was being manipulated not engaged because the barbs were chosen specifically to disturb my world. This is why I believe she won because I reacted to said barbs. I believe this was all she wanted. I'll be more careful next time.

Welcome, Miffed, to Ye Olde Minions of Akak!  They are a good-natured but rowdy bunch, who can on occasion lose their cool in the heat of battle, but who never fail to hoist the Jolly Roger and unsheath their swords whenever pirates of treachery and dishonesty sail into view!

Actually, until last night I was not aware that I had any "minions" at all.  I guess the number of my followers must be inflating.  But you, in particular, did not deserve the foul and unfair lashing that you received in that exchange, and I winced far more for your sake than I did for mine.  It was a truly bitter and damaged person who could treat you in such an unjustifiably vicious manner.

I just wanted to tell you again with what interest, and respect, I read your posts here on ZH ---- they have been among the most insightful, informative and fair-minded of any I have read here, particularly recently.  Kudos!

Ha ha my dear pirate! I can't think of a better crowd to be associated. This has been such a great vacation for me because I can relax, be more contemplative and therefore more myself. You see this in my posts. Unfortunately in real life I have only brief moments between the necessities of my day to read, let alone post here, so often I feel so rushed I can't compose my thoughts well. Generally I just read my favorite commenters as you and others and up vote in support. So, now I return to my flavorless terse life. Mr miffed is happy at this development. He has been teasing me that he has a rival for my attention! ;-) adieu for now... boarding a plane to Fiji. Hope to joust with you as we battle the forces of idiocy!
