Obama’s Hostage Crisis

8 Jun

Jimmy Carter was the worst President in American history for one reason and one reason alone. He presided over the malaise known as the disco era. But while he was in charge, there was also something about hostages going on. Barack Obama has his own hostage crisis to worry about, and unless he gets the hostages released before election day, 2012, he’ll be a one-termer too.

The Tea Party Congress doesn’t want to raise the debt ceiling unless they get massive job-killing spending cuts. For the first time in history the United States will default on our obligations unless something drastic is done, and done soon. Last month’s poor jobs numbers are the result of two factors. The total loss of one of our top markets – Japan, due to the tsunami, earthquake, and nuclear meltdown. But economically, the debt ceiling crisis is even worse. No one in their right mind is going to even think about expanding their business until America decides we’re going to pay our bills.

America is being held hostage by the Tea Party Congress, whose rallying cry is “Shut ‘er down!”

And the Winner Is…

Everyone knows I inherited the family fortune. (A distant relative of mine invented the tablespoon.) So I understand how hard it’s been for Mitt Romney, whose daddy was both rich and powerful. Recent polls show the former Governor beating Barack Obama head-to-head. Hell, I’d even consider voting for a guy who gave universal healthcare to his state and supports women’s rights.

Romney has played it perfectly so far, by not talking very much. His strategy is brilliant: Let Gingrich implode on Meet the Press, let Pawlenty screw up a softball question about abortion, and let Sarah Palin, well, be Sarah Palin.

Of course, the election is still a long way’s off, but these numbers are significant. Just like four years ago, when Hillary Clinton held an insurmountable lead over Rudy Giuliani…

Liar, Liar

As founder of the most popular hip-hop jazz fusion group in the world, I’ve always had a keen sense of what’s happening. I was the first person to predict Barack Obama would become President – way back when he was a community organizer on the South Side. As a matter of fact, I’ve never been wrong. Until now.

I believed Anthony Weiner when he said his Twitter account was hacked and that he wasn’t the one who sent that infamous crotch-shot to a hottie in Seattle. I mean, the dude went on every news show on every network and proclaimed his innocence – he was the victim!

Turns out we were the victims.

All he had to do was get out in front of the story and tell the truth; in all “certitude”. But, no. He lied. Now he joins the long list of democrats who’ve been caught up in a web of deception. John Edwards being the most evil one on that list that I can think of at the moment.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a democrat. I stand with the party on the issues. But I won’t blindly defend those who commit indefensible acts.
