Rove: Obama Plans to Profit Politically From a Government Shutdown

AP Graphic
In the White House Press Room on Tuesday, President Barack Obama did what comes naturally — scold others. In this case, the Congress. Mr. Obama complained that a budget agreement "could have gotten done three months ago."
What he didn't say was that the budget should have "gotten done" six months ago, before the current fiscal year started last Oct. 1. Our government's failure to have a budget in place halfway through the fiscal year is the president's responsibility. He and his party dominated Congress by wide margins when the budget was supposed to be put in place.


In the short term, it's obvious what Mr. Obama hopes to gain. Having watched his standing as "a strong and decisive leader" drop to 52% in last month's Gallup poll from 60% last year, the president is looking to profit politically from a shutdown of the federal government.

Who get's to choose what is essential? Obama, that's who. He will pick and choose based on his politics. This is another reason how a government shutdown will serve Obama and the Democratic Party. Obama has the bully pulpit and he will use it like the community agitator that he is. But it might not turn out the way Obama thinks this time around. People don't believe everything he says anymore. The problem is people don't believe the Republicans either. I guess we will see what happens in the end after both sides have played their political hands. How do you think it might turn out?

Trump: I Have Investigators in Hawaii...'They Cannot Believe What They're Finding'


DONALD TRUMP: I am saying I want to see the birth certificate. It's very simple. I want to see the birth certificate. How come his own family doesn't know which hospital he was born in? How come-- forget about birth certificates. Let's say there's no birth certificate. How come in the hospital itself, okay? This is one of the hospital itself, there's no records of his birth. In other words, it doesn't say how much they paid, where is the doctor, here's your room bill. You know, all the
MEREDITH VIEIRA: You've been privy to all of this to know this?
DONALD TRUMP: Well, I have people that actually have been studying it and they cannot believe what they're talking.
MEREDITH VIEIRA: You have people now out there searching-- I mean, in Hawaii?
DONALD TRUMP: Absolutely. And they cannot believe what they're finding. And I'm serious--

Is Trump falling for a birther trap? I'm wondering why a smart man like Trump is doing this if he didn't have a good reason. I would rather have Trump run against Obama's policies rather then the birth certificate thing. But maybe Trump knows something we don't. I just wish he would tell us what he has found out, if anything at all. I hope Trump is wrong, because if he is right this country is in big trouble.

Beck Explains His Transition

" Like Paul Revere, You Have to Get off the Horse". Many of the left-wing are moist after hearing of Beck ending his show at 5pm on Fox News. Someone else will take Becks place as "Paul Rever" letting us know what the government and their ilk are doing. There is still the demand for his kind of show. The market will not let his millions of viewers slip away. It will be interesting to see what Beck does next. I'm sure he will be playing a bigger role in politics. One thing Beck has that Olbermann didn't is millions of viewers. I wish him luck in his new venture with Fox News.
