Today in Obama Betrayals . . .

Wait, what?  He did?  Yes, he did!  Obama nominated Janet Yellen to chair the U.S. Federal Reserve.  Going to be a tough job going forward but she is seemingly a tough lady. 

And speaking of tough - the Prez trash talked the Rethugs for an hour today in his presser.  I’m liking second term Obama more and more.

Holy Shit Batman! I can’t believe all that pushback not only got Lawrence Summers to decline the nomination, it got Janet Yellen nominated. Finally Obama cleaned out his fucking ears, took off his hippie-punching gloves, & decided to engage in some representational democracy, instead of kow-towing to the goddamned banksters. Ёб твою мать пизданути хучек говнук! It’s so satisfying to cuss them out in Russian.

And yet the firebaggers are yellin’ about Yellen anyway. 

As I said somewhere else today: It’s almost like these people are disappointed that Obama didn’t pick Summers, ’cause now they can’t screech “See how awful he is! Obummer! Bothsides!” with the same intensity.

I’m liking second term Obama more and more.

He needs to rekindle the energy of his supporters in the runup to the 2014 midterms.

Yellen is on record as seeing the mortgage bubble coming, Summers said it was all A-OK, no prob.  I’d rather have a Fed chair who has shown an ability to see where the economy was/is going off the rails, since we’re apparently headed for Default City so we’re going to need someone extremely competent in that position*. 


*Getting rid of the incompetents in the elected positions is going to help a lot too, and crashing the economy is going to have Rethug written ALL over it.

And Yellen supported the repeal of Glass-Steagall, so I remain mystified why she became the new two-word magpie refrain (right up there with “public option!”) for EmoProgs. I mean, I’m sure she’ll be fine. But I really don’t see why she became such a cause celebre. Other than Larry Summers being a dickwad, of course—an assessment with which I have no problem agreeing.

He needs to rekindle the energy of his supporters in the runup to the 2014 midterms.

No—his “supporters” need to fucking learn that voting in midterms is a goddamn fucking seriousy responsibility, not something you do only if the president makes you orgasm exactly how and when you like it.

Jesus H. Fucking Taint-licking Christ on a Goddamn Crutch, if alleged lefties didn’t learn that from 2010, then they are as beyond help as the Teabaggers.

Hi, O.  Glad to see you haven’t changed your style.  ;-)  Also, too, I completely agree with you on the need to vote EVERY election.

I am just fucking sick and tired of all the “what the PRESIDENT needs to do!” bullshit. He is not personally responsible for motivating and tending to the tender fee-fees of every fainting-couch denizen in Leftie-Land. Jesus, isn’t it time for people who want to be taken seriously to get their passports stamped for Grown-Up Land and learn that it’s nobody’s job to “motivate” you to act in the best interests of both yourself and other people?

@Oblomova.  In a word:  Yes. And again.  YES!!  It’s our responsibility to f’n vote the right way and quit f’n whining about the Preznut not using his bulleee pulpit enuff! or whatever.  Vote for goddam Democrats and get the asshole TeePees out of our government.  Anyone who stays home for WHATEVER reason has only themselves to blame.

I’m just so sick & tired of listening to douchebags like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Eric Cantor, Louie Gohmert, Michele Bachmann, Virginia Foxx, Paul Ryan, Paul Broun, et al, that I want to cart an oxload of rotten tomatoes down to the capitol building & just start pelting them as they come out of the doors until the Capitol Police come & haul me away.
I’m going to have to seriously restrain myself if I ever come into close contact with any of the Tea Party doucherockets like Judson Phillips, Rick Santelli, or Allen West because I’m liable to jump on them like Ralphie Parker & start wailing away on them like he did to Scut Farkus. Those assholes are guilty of seditious treason as far as I’m concerned.

It wasnt lefties and obamas old white base who stayed home. It was young people and minorities who didnt turn out in the record numbers needed. And they never do turn out at midterms. Its not obamas fault but its not “the lefts” either. People who are regular voters voted

Stentor has made my day with a Scut Farkus reference.

“He had yellow eyes! So, help me, God! Yellow eyes!”

I always though “The Scut Farkus Affair” would be a good band name.

And in the original book, Grover Dill was the bad guy and Farkus was the toady (IIRC).

Krugman is pleased with the Yellen nom:  http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/10/10/janet-joy/?_r=0
