Quit Whining!

Both the President and the Vice President have told those who voted for the President to buck up and quit whining.  Not surprisingly, many to whom this message is directed have whined about it.  They say they were promised a magic unicorn that farted glitter, and are pissed the President hasn’t delivered (credit goes to Stephanie Miller for this characterization).

It seems we have a nation of children in the back seat screaming “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” while they are fighting with each other.  I for one am glad the President has kept one hand on the wheel while he turned around and told these spoiled brats: “Don’t make me stop this car!”

This is precisely the message to get out when the Democrats are saying this is an election about choices rather than a referendum on where we’re at.

    The dems have been whiners. If they can’t get over it and get to the polls then they deserve what they get and have no justification to complain about it.

    Personally, I wish I could pound those “principled” voters who voted for Nader in Florida in 2000.

    I think the mood is turning, and voters are aware how extreme the Tea Party.

    Saw “Wall Street — Money Never Sleeps” and liked it very much.

    Hoping Michael Douglas is around for many more movies. Even a sequel.

  3. Morning peeps,
    Long time no see! Just to let you know what’s going on, I’ve been job hunting, think I have one.

    Emanuel to Depart White House for Chicago Mayoral Bid

    President Obama will give his chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, a
    send-off at the White House on Friday as Mr. Emanuel
    officially announces his departure from the West Wing to run
    for mayor of Chicago, officials familiar with the decision
    said.

    The event will take place in the Rose Garden, weather
    permitting, and is tentatively scheduled for late morning,
    said the officials, who declined to be named in advance of an
    official announcement.

    Mr. Obama plans to name Pete Rouse, a senior adviser, to
    replace Mr. Emanuel, two officials confirmed. Mr. Rouse has
    been at Mr. Obama’s side since the moment he arrived in
    Washington nearly six years ago, serving as his chief of
    staff in his United States Senate office.

    and didn’t these clowns also vote note to extend the unemployment benefits to those out of work people because it would add to much to the debt? jerks!

    dnd,

    good guess D Rick Sanchez has been fired from CNN.

  9. The Craig Crawford curse, hang out with Craig long enough and you’re bound to end up saying some racist or bigoted. First there was Imus, then Helen, now Rick. Coincidence? I think not.

    I enjoyed reading Stephen J. Cannell’s books.

    Bye, bye Rick – Jon will rule long after most of you are gone.

      Sanchez is out on a book tour promoting his new book, Conventional Idiocy. How appropriately titled 😉
      I wonder how his publisher feels about all of this. My guess is that you’ll find his book on the bargain table by next week. What a maroon.

    Good morning all.

    Why did I know that Ed Quillen would have beat me to backchannel?

    The Quiet Surge: Boxer Staying One Step Ahead In California

    It’s beginning to look like a polls are starting to shift to the Dems.

    If I had a wish granted, it would be that opposing candidates talked about themselves and what they have done or would do to make the country or their state better than their opponent. Instead, we have anti, negative campaigning telling us what’s bad about the other person instead.

    I agree sometimes it’s time to replace a long-standing office holder, but this year we really have some weirdo’s who campaign on how bad their opponent is and not much about themselves – Ben Quayle, Christine O, Sharon A, R. Paul etc.
