Sack Of Nuts Leads Obama In Latest Presidential Polling (UPDATED)

“When it comes to curbing unemployment, President Obama ‘will not rest’ until everyone looking for a job can find one, White House spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday. A couple of hours later, the White House put out an announcement that the president will soon begin a nine-day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.”

—Peter Nicholas, LA Times

Right.  Obama “will not rest” until he’s solved the unemployment problem, O.J. Simpson will never cancel his search for the real killers, and the United States will never lose its AAA credit rating.  Excuse me while I retch.  Not that I begrudge President Barry his many vacations—the country, after all, is safer when he’s on the bum—and with all our reprehensible Congress-critters out of town as well, an almost forgotten sense of well-being has temporarily settled over the hinterlands; unless, that is, the residents of said hinterlands were luckless enough to have been heavily invested in the stock market on Friday.

Times are tough for Mr. Hope ‘n Change. 51% of U.S. voters are now saying they’d rather vote for a sack of nuts, assuming they can find any that aren’t already working in his White House. 80% of American Muslims still love the guy, though.  Not bad, considering that only 43% of Catholics have a favorable opinion of the Pope.  Ah, well.  At any event, our economic troubles will soon be a thing of the past—the Senate Democrats have named Hanoi John Kerry as one of the members of the new Supreme Soviet…er, I mean the Congressional Debt Committee.  Can Barney Frank be far behind?


Well, I was wrong. Ol’ Barn didn’t make the cut. Instead, the charming Ms. Pelosi, intoxicated as always on Barbary Coast water, has named—as Carnak the Magnificent might have said—a black, a quack, and a flack; however, as John Hayward at Human Events laments:

It’s a pity we couldn’t have Pelosi herself on the Super Committee, as she’s one of the top economists in the Democrat Party. She’s the one who discovered the mystical stimulus power of unemployment benefits, which she described as “one of the biggest stimuluses to our economy,” able to “create jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”

…Pelosi also promised that ObamaCare, the greatest single job-killing predator to emerge from the beast pits of the Beltway, would give the economy a “jolt” that would create four million jobs. I don’t know how the Super Committee can be taken seriously if this economic MVP is sitting on the sidelines. Maybe she’ll text some ideas to van Hollen’s Blackberry during the meetings.

    Sack of Nuts must refer to the Republican hopefuls.

      Ah, a riposte containing a modicum of wit. My congratulations, THOR. I don’t usually see that from liberal commenters–which is why I rarely publish their remarks anymore. Alas, the nuts in question are generic ABO’s (Anybody But Obama). BTW, I found your photographs to be excellent; unfortunately, I can’t offer you the same compliment upon your politics. But thanks for stopping by.

      SARGE, how ’bout this morning’s bit of wisdom from the Chambers of O? Carney: Unemployment Benefits Could Create Up To 1 Million Jobs

      Carney says President Obama is pushing for unemployment benefits to be extended “as we continue to emerge from this recession.”

      Carney also says this is only one item of a “variety of things to grow the economy and create jobs.”

      Extrapolating, that means that if everybody was out of work & receiving UC, the economy would be in fine shape! I’m tellin’ ya, these people are geniuses.

    I was thinking a sack of SH*t would be better than obummer!
    He makes me retch too, Bob.
    I hope he goes on his umpteenth vacay, it will just piss people off more.
    His little mouth piece, carney barker, said he was going to “we can’t begrudge him
    spending time w/ his family”. RIGHT, that’s why he shipped moochelle and a kid off to
    Oregon the other day, just in time to miss his ramalama-dingdong dinner!

    • Bob Mack says:

      A sampling of Barry’s Ramadan remarks, BUNNI:

      It’s an occasion to join with family and friends in celebration of a faith known for its diversity and a commitment to justice and the dignity of all human beings. So to you and your families, Ramadan Kareem.

      This evening reminds us of both the timeless teachings of a great religion and the enduring strengths of a great nation. Like so many faiths, Islam has always been part of our American family, and Muslim Americans have long contributed to the strength and character of our country, in all walks of life.

      Yes, the Religion of Peace is certainly known for it’s diversity and it’s commitment to justice–its stoning of women, its honor killing, its amputations of the limbs of thieves–and who could forget its many contributions to America. If not for Islam, we’d have no Department of Homeland Security, and the Twin Towers would still be up.

    I guess i am going to have to watch him with that damn slurpee again? Anyone want to bet?

    • Bob Mack says:

      And don’t forget his nerd bike helmet, BUNKER, conscientiously worn as he pedals along a traffic-less bike path that’s been thoroughly cleared by the Secret Service.

  6. Bingo! see the quote from William F. Buckley in my post today. It fits perfectly with this post of yours.

    Great post Bob.
    All I can say is, a fool is as a fool does.
    We are witnessing the result of complete inexperience in the Oval Office.
    Hopefully, the Republic will still exist after this idiot is excoriated to the dust bins of history.

  9. Denny says:

    There seeems to be very many nuts at the Obama White House these days, but Americans generally do NOT like the taste of ACORNS. Nevertheless, nutty is what nutty does. Thanks for listening, 777denny

  10. Sorry haven’t read lately, Bob. Your site is chocked full of wit and insight. Cheers!

  11. Freedom, by the way says:

    The committe of 12 is, I’m afraid, a big joke–on the American people. I’m not a Newt fan, but he nailed the idiocy of this committe forming in the debate last night.
    Great post, Bob.

    • Bob Mack says:

      The Committee should be renamed the Dirty Dozen. Unless progressive Dems–and right now, there is no other kind–are shown the door in 2012, the spiral into oblivion will continue unabated.
