In Case You Missed It Dept.:
In Virginia, a local baker refused to allow his store to be used as a campaign stop by Vice President Biden because he was offended by Obama’s “you didn’t build that” remark. Apparently he has a “no respect, no class, no service” policy.
The liberal organization Media Matters condemned Navy Seals as “gutless” for criticizing President Obama’s security leaks. Probably think bin Laden was stabbed to death with a reporter’s pen.
A caterer at an Obama event took a dig at the President by wearing an “I built this” t-shirt. Not sure what he was serving, but I think Obama had crow.
A new report shows that the price of ground beef in the US has hit a record high. However, bologna should be pretty cheap considering how much the White House is distributing.
Mitt Romney took a shot at Obama, saying the President’s desperately trying “to hang on to power.” So how come he’s not letting coal-fired plants make any?
At a campaign event in New Hampshire, Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen said Obama “led the mission that brought Osama bin Laden to justice”. Sure, just like the people in the street lead the bulls in Pamplona.
Researchers announced that they may have discovered the remains of Amelia Earhart’s airplane. Meanwhile, the search continues unsuccessfully for any trace of a Democrat budget.

The White House saw a new poll Friday showing two-thirds of Americans believe the country is going in the wrong direction. It’s not all bad. Waiting for Joe Biden to say something really stupid every day has replaced baseball as America’s National Pastime.
Mitt Romney took the lead in polls after a week of personal attacks. The strategy backfired on the Democrats. They labeled Mitt Romney as a tax cheat, a slave-trader and a wife-murderer and it made him look like a man who’s not afraid to make the tough decisions.
The U.S. soccer team beat Mexico’s soccer team in Mexico City Wednesday for the first time in seventy-five years. It’s a good thing this happened in Mexico City and not Los Angeles. If this had happened where there are a lot of Mexicans, there might have been a riot.
The Washington Examiner reports that Hillary Clinton rebuffed White House feelers last week to be Obama’s running mate. Happy days were here again for comedians. The Clintons aren’t even back in the White House yet and already someone’s getting felt up.
Newsweek startled its readers Sunday by putting a photo of President Obama on the cover and calling for the American people to vote him out. It’s the news magazine equivalent of making a sex tape. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get your own TV show.
President Obama disclosed he is working on a plan to release oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to lower gas prices before the election. It’s his last option. They tried releasing the Strategic Wind Reserve, but every time Joe Biden gives a speech things just get worse.
Mitt Romney reported one hundred eighty-five million in cash on hand Sunday while Obama spent ten million more than he made. The GOP is nervous. If Obama’s numbers get any worse Mitt Romney could take over his campaign, fire everyone and turn it around.
Leading from Behind is a new book which says Hillary Clinton talked Barack Obama into killing Osama bin Laden after the president cancelled three previous SEAL kill missions in three months. It was excruciating. President Obama couldn’t pull the trigger until he met with a sports psychologist who told him to pretend it was Winston Churchill.
Joe Biden plans to crash the GOP Convention in Tampa Monday by making campaign speeches there. The trip was timed with carefully charted precision. President Obama can pick Hillary Clinton to be his running mate but only if Joe Biden is killed in a hurricane.
President Obama met students at the Ohio State student union Wednesday where he signed autographs and repeatedly misspelled the word Ohio. The president spelled the state’s name O-I-H-O. Nevertheless the voters gave him an A, it’s been that way all his life.
Hillary Clinton said she’s made plans to step down as Secretary of State at the end of the term. It’s not easy for her to do. Hillary Clinton once tried to resign from the Obama Administration and the Capitol Police arrested her for leaving the scene of an accident.
President Obama spoke at a star-studded New York fundraiser Thursday. He said he is rarely at an event where he’s the fifth or sixth most interesting person in the room. At the last three events the line to talk to Andy Dick was longer than the line to talk to him.
CBS announced it will broadcast a re-run of Hawaii Five-O Monday rather than carry Ann Romney’s speech to the GOP Convention. It’s an outrage. Republicans were upset till they realized this is the episode where McGarrett finds out there is no birth certificate.

Mitt Romney is predicting that as president, he will create 12 million jobs in his first term. Well, President Obama says a Romney presidency would result in lost jobs. Yeah, his and Biden’s.
President Obama said today he’s working on a plan to release oil before November to lower gas prices. It will be released from our strategic election reserves.
President Obama said today he is sticking with Joe Biden. Which means one of two things — either he thinks Biden is doing a good job or Hillary said no.
Fellow Republicans are calling for Todd Akin to step down. But Democrats are going, “Stay in! Don’t be a quitter. Hang in there.”
At a campaign stop in Virginia, Joe Biden said he is such a NASCAR fan, he said, “I’d trade being vice president in a heartbeat for winning Daytona.” To which President Obama said, “Deal!”
They’re now worried that Tropical Storm Isaac could hit Florida during next week’s Republican convention. But Florida is ready for it. Thanks to President Obama’s economic policies, many businesses down there are already boarded up.
It’s now being reported that Joe Biden will go to the Republican convention to try to cause problems for Mitt Romney. Then after that, he will go to the Democratic convention where he will definitely cause problems for President Obama.
This rather brilliantly cuts thru all the political doublespeak we get. It puts it into a much better perspective.

* New debt on the credit card: $16,500

OK now Lesson # 2: Here’s another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:
Let’s say you come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood….and your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.
What do you think you should do …
Raise the ceilings, or pump out the crap?
