White House in panic mode with SCOTUS ruling on Obamacare
^^^ Juan Williams spinapalooza.
I don't see how striking down that unpopular law based on its lack of constitutionality, especially considering that it was railroaded through by democrats, can be a political plus for Obambi.
This is similar to the meme being peddled today over at the Washington Post. This quote was from 1980, when Jimmy Carter was trying to talk about anything but the economy."In the same years when presidential politics changed so greatly, governing did, too," writes the Times's Tom Wicker: "It got harder. . . . The rise of single-interest politics and independent legislators has made it more difficult to put together a governing coalition; sophisticated new lobbying techniques wielded on behalf of virtually every interest group further complicate the task. And a strong argument could be made that the major issues--energy and the economy, for instance--are more complex than they were."

The People Obama Invites to the White House, Part XXXII; Updated
From our “The people Obama invites into the White House” file, we find this:
Nuthin’ but class:Last Friday, an attaché of important gay people from Philadelphia made a trip to Washington D.C. as invited guests of President Barack Obama for the White House’s first-ever gay pride reception. There, they danced to the sounds of a Marine Corps band; they dined on crab cakes and canapés; they hand-delivered letters from concerned citizens like this 18-year old who has had four people close to him gunned down, and noted rhyming raconteur CA Conrad; and some of them took advantage of photo opportunities to give the late President Ronald Reagan the middle finger.
I’d remind these misguided, anger-filled buffoons about Reagan’s opposition to the Briggs Amendment, but I have a feeling the truth would make little difference to them.Hart posted his photo on Facebook with the caption, “•••• Reagan.” Strauss simply posted hers without commentary. After all, the murderous facial expression and double-barreled bird-flipping seem to speak for themselves. Comments ranged from “you forgot to add with a chainsaw” on Hart’s “•••• Reagan” note, to my personal favorite, “star wars … up yours,” on Strauss’s. …
“Yeah, •••• Reagan,” reiterates Hart one week after the reception. “Ronald Reagan has blood on his hands. The man was in the WhiteHouse as AIDS exploded, and he was happy to see plenty of gay men and queer people die. He was a murderous fool, and I have no problem saying so. Don’t invite me back. I don’t care.”
But it wasn’t all middle fingers to The Gipper… the White House also that day played host to a wedding proposal between a female-to-male transgender and a biological woman (which I believe hasn’t happened since 1994 when Janet Reno got drunk, wandered over to the East Wing and asked Dee Dee Myers to marry her):
"The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us...
Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."
^^were they allowed to use knives and forks? Or were they told to leave dogs outside?
Why yes Mr Obama. Fascism is so much faster...

Yeppers I’ll bet they really regret cancelling their event at the home of NASCAR. All of those knuckle dragging, bible thumping, gun toting NASCAR fans just aren’t their cup of tea.
Hey Dutch what do you think about the Obama-spin-meister after 3 1/2 years of Chicago politics?

Mr President. You go on and on about Romney and outsourcing. Yet what happened at NASA? How is that different?
And what did you mean here?
