Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Weiner cooked

When this sordid incident first broke and gained steam, I predicted he’d resign.  Didn’t go out on a limb with that one, now did I?

San Fran tackles pressing issue of the day: banning goldfish

San Fransicko.  Nuff said:

First kittens, then puppies and hamsters and now goldfish?

San Francisco’s Animal Control and Welfare Commission is recommending that the City ban the sale of goldfish, tropical fish and guppies in its borders, according to Matier and Ross.

The recommendation to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is part of the commission’s ongoing efforts to discourage “impulse buys” of animals. …

I’m guessing there won’t be any bans on gerbils anytime soon in San Franfreakshow.  Just sayin’…

Wasserman Schultz: “We own the economy”, you know the one that has been “turned around”?

From DNC chair Debbie Whatshername Schmuck:

Democrats are ready to take responsibility for the state of the economy and they deserve credit for putting it on the right track, the party’s chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, said on Wednesday.

We own the economy. We own the beginning of the turnaround and we want to make sure that we continue that pace of recovery, not go back to the policies of the past under the Bush administration that put us in the ditch in the first place,” Wasserman Schultz told Mike Allen at POLITICO’s ‘Playbook Breakfast.’

The economy, she said, “has turned around” since President Obama took office, with steady job growth evident even if the pace leaves something to be desired.

Republicans have ridiculed Democrats’ claims of economic success in the wake of disappointing jobs numbers and an uptick in the unemployment rate.

Wasserman Schultz said Democrats aren’t in need of a new story to tell about the economy because they’ve put the right policies in place. “I don’t think it’s about what we say, it’s about what we do.

Oh, goodie!  So no more knocking Bush on the economy, since it’s yours now, right?

See, snookums, you can’t have it both ways (unless you’re Ann Heche, but I digress).  You can no longer say “it’s Bush fault” if your current argument is “the economy has turned around and we deserve recognition for it”, now can you?  But trust me, honeybritches: you and your kind WILL get the recognition for what you’ve done to this economy that you so richly deserve.

UPDATED: Obama FINALLY discovers reasons behind high unemployment: ATM’s and airport kiosks!

UPDATES BELOW.

Man, when that guy goes off of his telebinky, it ain’t pretty:

President Obama explained to NBC News that the reason companies aren’t hiring is not because of his policies, it’s because the economy is so automated. … “There are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient with a lot fewer workers. You see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM, you don’t go to a bank teller, or you go to the airport and you’re using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate.”

Oh, so THAT’S why no one is hiring!  The automation of jobs is destroying the employment sector, I see.  And here I thought it was his and his party’s left-wing, anti-business, hostile-to-capitalism, anti-growth policies that were choking off hiring!  Whatever was I thinking?

UPDATE (06/16/2011 – 07:30 AM ET): Boehner responds (full press release at link):

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) issued a mocking press release Wednesday chastising the president over remarks Obama made claiming that ATMs and airport ticket kiosks were partly to blame for persistently high unemployment.

The release, cheekily written from the point of view of an everyday ATM, poked fun at Obama for claiming that greater efficiency from automated machines like ATMs was to blame for high unemployment.

“This is a guest blog post from the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) in your favorite convenience store near the Slurpee Machine,” Boehner’s press release said.

“I didn’t do it.”

Boehner’s fake ATM further poked fun at the president, noting that kiosks, cash machines, and even teleprompters were merely devices that made things “a little easier.”

“ATMs and airport kiosks (and even teleprompters) are tools that help make life a little easier,” the release read.

Heh.
