Standard slobber 15 June 2011

Posted by marisacat in 2012 Re Election, DC Politics, Democrats, Inconvenient Voice of the Voter, Total fucking lunatics.


but still.

Via Politico’s “44”

President Obama is making himself available to four lucky supporters — for a price. Granted, that price is a minimum of $5.

Obama said in the pitch that the contest isn’t like “most campaigns” that “fill their dinner guest lists primarily with Washington lobbyists and special interests.” (An iWatch News investigation, meanwhile, found that nearly 200 of Obama’s top donors were rewarded with nice government jobs, advisory positions, contracts or invitations to elite events.) 

… and, for the come on:

“Friend —

I’ve set aside time for four supporters like you to join me for dinner.

Most campaigns fill their dinner guest lists primarily with Washington lobbyists and special interests.

We didn’t get here doing that, and we’re not going to start now. We’re running a different kind of campaign. We don’t take money from Washington lobbyists or special-interest PACs — we never have, and we never will.

We rely on everyday Americans giving whatever they can afford — and I want to spend time with a few of you.

So if you make a donation today, you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to be one of the four supporters to sit down with me for dinner. Please donate $5 or more today:


We’ll pay for your flight and the dinner — all you need to bring is your story and your ideas about how we can continue to make this a better country for all Americans.

This won’t be a formal affair. It’s the kind of casual meal among friends that I don’t get to have as often as I’d like anymore, so I hope you’ll consider joining me.

But I’m not asking you to donate today just so you’ll be entered for a chance to meet me. I’m asking you to say you believe in the kind of politics that gives people like you a seat at the table — whether it’s the dinner table with me or the table where decisions are made about what kind of country we want to be.

It starts with a gift of whatever you can afford.

Please make a donation of $5 or more today, and we’ll throw your name in the hat for the upcoming dinner:


I’ve said before that I want people like you to shape this campaign from the very beginning — and this is a chance for four people to share their ideas directly with me.

Hope to see you soon,


Hope they get a mug, too! Something tangible, ya know! Full on Barack-a-cuda…

(Bet he ducks out early.)

LOL, Drudge’s take on it was “Campaign Raffling Off Obama.”

Gotta be a saturated political collectibles market out there for Democrats, tho, what with the Daily Kos Neutered Roots Nation convention auction comin up and all….

BooHooHooMan - 16 June 2011

This won’t be a formal affair.

LOL. Yeh- No Kiddin –
the Salahi’s got their shit for FREE!

marisacat - 16 June 2011

I have a feeling there is creeping desperation in the ObamaLamaLoveBaby camp.

BooHooHooMan - 16 June 2011

Well, 😉 why should they worry?
Plenty of white guys who love golf, right?

Tho one aspect of assembling their blocs, I think they really overestimate their charms this time with the young in general, young AA too.
One, the “phenom” is old news and the Phenom wasn’t all that phenomenal.
So this “build on ~your~ historic Win” scheise is already been there done that/ moved on to serious liquor and realistic cynicism LOL for most outside of College Dem
and Law School wannabe types.

Dem and Indy Seniors is another bloc that will will be outright punitive in its flake-off rates.

I’ve felt the whole Huntsman placement to begin with was contrived to blunt Romney’s rise.
NTIM. Little Shrubs all around.

marisacat - 16 June 2011

Yeah I agree on Huntsman… tho he has, carefully placed, said some interesting things… Media declared Romny the winner out of the mini debate, fwiw….(oh and Bachman a person of interest… snicker)

diane - 16 June 2011

I think Huntsman is a serious threat for Obama, the largest weakness being face recognition …but once the Rethug electorate see that they too, can claim a candidate who has an even slimier grin than Obama (with less apparent malice! for the subtle ones out there), and doesn’t look like a crank.
I’m betting Wall Street adores him: HE’S WHITE!;…LAYED BACK! (who isn’t, with that kind of money);…..has a lovely bit about Bring the Troops Back (nothing said about recalling the drones or mercenaries); …. $$$$$$$Green$$$$$$$$ Investment, $$$$; …..Gay Rights$$$$$; ….a Rocker, Biker, …..and Hunter/Predator!.… Something for everyone feeling left out for decades (except those who’ve already totally given up on voting for the two in one ‘parties’).
Getting past his salability to the masses, to the crux of the matter: been involved with China negotiations since Poppy (at least, did work under Reagan too); …Absolutely Merciless on Fiscal Policy for the masses (The Ryan Plan, etc.).

Obama likely envies him deeply.

we’re fucked, barring a viable third party candidate.

marisacat - 16 June 2011

….barring a viable third party candidate.

No such thing.

RFK had a remarkable name, proximity to the assassination (it absolutely did not work for Ted 12 years later)… John Anderson, a life long R, I have come to believe was part of an operation mounted by T Kennedy and aligned forces to deny Carter (Jackie K voted for Andersn that year)… McCarthy ran in a wholly different anti war, youth culture… etc.

One of the problems is we don’t know yet what Huntsman is like on the schtump. (mix of Schtupp and Stump!!) Mittens is too controlled, but hell it may fly.

Speaking of Huntsman, the family biz in China shot up 57% while he was ambassador.. (not very long) Be ineresting to see how it flies…

Obster faces a daunting map.

diane - 16 June 2011

(oopsie,…almost forgot!…….and he’s a Yachtsman! …..what more could Wall Street ask for, I tell ya! … Ellison (Oracle) is probably having Wet Dreams.)

marisacat - 16 June 2011

Frtunately we are spared Elisson. Too many lawsuits for sexual whatever. IIRC More than one has gone all the way to trial. Civil trial, but trial.

diane - 16 June 2011

Speaking of Huntsman, the family biz in China shot up 57% while he was ambassador

I wasn’t surprised that he was born in Palo Alto, California. ….I’ll bet Zuckerberg would love an audience with him, ….”Master Hunter/Predator” which he would he lurve to be.

Speaking of I Kill!, …:0)…interesting (recently found out), that the day before the Gibbs Hire floating, by The [Illustrious] New York Times, …..it was hardly announced, that Facebook, (Peter Thiel (‘your’ Pay Pal fwend) , et al…..) brought on two Rethugs, one of them, involved with cementing the putrid Patriot Act:

“It’s imperative that we scale our policy team so that we have the resources in place to demonstrate to policymakers that we are industry leaders in privacy, data security and safety,” said Andrew Noyes, a Facebook spokesman in an e-mailed statement.

The two hires are Joel Kaplan (pictured at left,) President Bush’s former deputy chief of staff in the White House, and Myriah Jordan (not pictured,) who worked for Bush in the chief of staff’s office.

Facebook says that Kaplan will oversee its public policy strategy. His presence should make for some interesting conversations in Facebook’s DC offices — one of his new colleagues will be Tim Sparapani, who came to Facebook from the American Civil Liberties Union’s DC office, where he was a privacy advocate.

For his part, Kaplan, a Harvard Law School graduate and former law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, worked with Bush to enact the USA PATRIOT Act.

Most recently, he was a lobbyist at Texas utility company Energy Future Holdings.

marisacat - 16 June 2011

They ALL brought us the PATRIOT Act. Welcome to the long running, forever third term for Reagan.

diane - 16 June 2011

yup….that’s not blood and misery, Thats catch up ….and, don’t ya know?

Ketchups’s a vegetable!

(and grows profusely, right up out of the sewers)

marisacat - 16 June 2011

Organic ketchup.

BooHooHooMan - 16 June 2011

and we’ll throw your name in the hat for the upcoming dinner

A VERY nice hat, we might add!
All for FIVE BUCKS! Act NOW! 😆

2. marisacat - 16 June 2011

Our long national nightmare is OVER!

Weiner to resign.

All together now, big sigh.

(Or, whatever!)

BooHooHooMan - 16 June 2011

Sparing us the ole “Never Circumcised” gambit.
The lewd bastid. :lol:.
Buh-bye. Take your parrot tits and shlinky weinie wink wit’ ya. LOL.

marisacat - 16 June 2011

I slept thru his announce…

“I’ll be looking for other ways to contribute my talents,” Weiner says.

diane - 16 June 2011

Though I still cling to my Prude: ….a blatant misogynist, With The Power To Legislate,….not even worried (due to his allegiance with Israel and Saudi Arabia), about putting a damper on his audiovisual proclamations of the $power$, and accrued benefits, of his white dick being intimately associated with those on a lower social/age/gender/economic/political level, whether that Dick, is solicited, or not, I thought this white (high yella?), male perspective on that, now larger than life, pale throbbing organ, ….was funny:

The Debate: Is Anthony Weiner an Asshole?

We justices of the Supreme Court of Assholedom had an extraordinarily difficult time adjudicating the case of New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, ….


….In fact I always kind of imagined Weiner being a little like the chattering half-human face growing out of Richard E. Grant’s shoulder in the greatest-titled movie ever, How To Get Ahead In Advertising, with Weiner as an obnoxious talking boil on Schumer’s shoulder.

(bolding mine,……and yes, I’m going to tat an I’m a Proud Prude! ….(though I was the last one to know that that is what Prude ……. means), Badge….ya…..FOCKERS! ……..:0) ….;0)….)

diane - 16 June 2011

(oopsie, …sorry! … should have ended that last link, at: Richard E. Grant’s shoulder ….I think Matt would forfive me? ….:0) …..;0) …..)

marisacat - 16 June 2011

My favorite diversion was how he had to wait to talk to Huma.

😆 Kinda late.

Tho if the marriage is a beard situation (I have no effing clue), she will be staying. I mean, why switch camouflage horses.

One more hack. Up down, in out. Not much difference.

diane - 16 June 2011

I wouldn’t even want to be a fly on that wall between him and her… If, by chance, …it wasn’t an arranged marriage…I feel for her.

and yeah, one more hack ….sigh!


diane - 16 June 2011

(the whole white, high yella …darker skin, thing, was not a racial sling against white males. Just to say,..that: had a ‘black’ male Legislator been spreading the hump in the underwear piccies ….he’d be fried and hung, before he even began ….that is pretty much Historic; even when it was only an imagined hump, no piccies were sent, no audio ….no Political Power……Pretty easy for folks to forget that, with so much goin on, when they have no hideous, personal experience with it.)

diane - 16 June 2011

Probably the only truthful thing Obama has communicated, …. was that if it were him, …he’d resign ….well yeah, ….he would have to, ….regardless of how $$$WHITE$$$$ …. he wants to be, ….sees himself as ……

(note: I don’t believe that $$$WHITE$$$$ …..applies to the majority of White Males.)

hmm In case anyone is not scared enough, eating the morning Wheaties.

Why have alarms not been sounded about radiation exposure in the US?

Nuclear operator Exelon Corporation has been among Barack Obama’s biggest campaign donors, and is one of the largest employers in Illinois where Obama was senator. Exelon has donated more than $269,000 to his political campaigns, thus far. Obama also appointed Exelon CEO John Rowe to his Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future.

Dr Shoji Sawada is a theoretical particle physicist and Professor Emeritus at Nagoya University in Japan. He is concerned about the types of nuclear plants in his country, and the fact that most of them are of US design.

“Most of the reactors in Japan were designed by US companies who did not care for the effects of earthquakes,” Dr Sawada told Al Jazeera. “I think this problem applies to all nuclear power stations across Japan.”

Using nuclear power to produce electricity in Japan is a product of the nuclear policy of the US, something Dr Sawada feels is also a large component of the problem.

“Most of the Japanese scientists at that time, the mid-1950s, considered that the technology of nuclear energy was under development or not established enough, and that it was too early to be put to practical use,” he explained. “The Japan Scientists Council recommended the Japanese government not use this technology yet, but the government accepted to use enriched uranium to fuel nuclear power stations, and was thus subjected to US government policy.”

(bolding mine)

Exelon and Axelrod have a long association.

Here’s hopin…


He said it was critically important that the IMF delegation was met with a “sea of resistance by sections of society that were being attacked to pay off bankers and bondholders”.

He added: “Let’s hope the Greek protests continue but let’s hope even more that they begin to spread into countries like Ireland, Portugal and Spain.”

And the UK, and the US…well, let’s not get too carried away.

marisacat - 16 June 2011

Sounds good to me….

5. lucid - 16 June 2011

I’m tempted to give $5 just to see how long he would actually stay at dinner listening to my anarcho-syndicalist rantings…

6. marisacat - 16 June 2011

Mittens on the hoof. Reminds me a lot of GHWBush.

Gotta master that schtumping.

7. Madman in the Marketplace - 16 June 2011

I’m always amazed how delusional and out of touch these people are (both parties). Latest version: Multimillionaire Investor Mitt Romney To Jobless Poor: ‘I’m Also Unemployed’

TAMPA, Fla. — Mitt Romney sat at the head of the table at a coffee shop here on Thursday, listening to a group of unemployed Floridians explain the challenges of looking for work. When they finished, he weighed in with a predicament of his own.

“I should tell my story,” Mr. Romney said. “I’m also unemployed.”

He chuckled. The eight people gathered around him, who had just finished talking about strategies of finding employment in a slow-to-recover economy, joined him in laughter.

Seriously, now can people not spit in his face, or at least walk out?

Madman in the Marketplace - 16 June 2011

the stupid WordPress login won’t let me post.

marisacat - 16 June 2011

I noticed they dropped the “new” comment form format…

Did it straighten itself out ? I see you changed your particulars, did that let you get around it?

I am sorry!!

Madman in the Marketplace - 16 June 2011

No biggie! I just used “guest” instead.

Madman in the Marketplace - 16 June 2011

seems to be working normal again.

marisacat - 16 June 2011

Someone should have stuck a fork in him.
