Obama: Green Gobblin’

“The American people aren’t stupid.” —Barack Obama

That’s debatable—after all, 69 million of them voted for you a few years ago. From the edge of the Everglades yesterday, our green-around-the gills Chief Executive  said:

“We’re making new investments in the development of gasoline and diesel and jet fuel that’s actually made from a plant-like substance — algae. You’ve got a bunch of algae out here, right? If we can figure out how to make energy out of that, we’ll be doing all right.”

Investment, of course, in Dem-speak means “a tax dollar of yours that we’ve stolen to give to a friend of ours.”  And speaking of pond scum, Bill Maher, the smarmy host of HBO’s Real Time, plans to donate a million bucks to  help ensure four more years of Marxist misrule:

“I would like tonight to announce a donation to the Obama super PAC, which has the very unfortunate tongue-twister name Priority USA Action. I know, it was named by Borat. But tonight I would like to give that PAC … one million dollars.”

“This is the wisest investment I think I could make,” he added, urging rich liberals to follow suit.

Obama, who was against taking super-PAC money until he was for it (a change of heart fortuitously coinciding with his re-election campaign), is raking in the green from the Hollyweird crowd on the Left Coast:

A report by OpenSecrets.org, a comprehensive resource for federal campaign contributions, lobbying data and analysis, found that the TV, movie and music industry gave $48.7 million in political contributions in 2008, with 78 percent of it to Democrats.

The MRC report asserts that those are numbers the networks should be interested in, but aren’t.

“Obama’s gone to the Hollywood fundraising well at least five times since last fall, and the list of A-list donors to his campaign is endless,” Matt Philbin, report author and managing editor at the Culture and Media Institute told Fox411.com. “We have numerous examples of his administration trying to use entertainment and the arts — the biggest megaphone in America — to put out its messages on healthcare and other issues. If another industry had this kind of cozy relationship with a GOP President, the networks would have their investigative reporters working full time on it.” (Mainstream media ignores stories about Hollywood ties to Obama administration|FOX News)

 Jack Nicholson had it right: “I learned a long time ago in Hollywood that the only person I should vote for is myself.”

  1. Abe Lincoln wouldn’t have a chance in politics today, would he?

      JIM, let’s hope Barry doesn’t get a second chance. Read this in CFP today:

      Obama has already lost, and doesn’t even know it

      Despite approval rating lower than any President in recent history, the media push polls are trying to sell us that he is well liked and has a good chance to be re-elected, and ignore any and all facts that do not support their partisan message. The good news is that there has been a mass awakening of the American people who now realize that the mainstream media has a decided leftist tilt and media polls can no longer be trusted.

      Meanwhile, Democrats want us to believe that Obama has been a tremendous success. He promised to redistribute our wealth, and he has begun. He promised to transform our health care system, and he passed ObamaCare. He promised that his energy policies would dramatically increase energy cost, and they have. He promised to appoint Justices who thought like he did to the Supreme Court, and he has. He promised to pull American troops out of Iraq, regardless of the situation on the ground, and he has. He made many promises that he is trying to keep, but we just didn’t listen close enough or didn’t believe he meant what he said. Now that American voters have finally woken up, their opinion is that they don’t like what has been done and would like to repeal much of what Obama has done!

    IF it gets reelected, it will only be by fraud. Just like the first time, really. And I’m not going to mention what will probably happen at that point.

    “The American People aren’t stupid” – Barack Obama.
    No date on the statement, however, there are many that voted for him in ’08, that would never do it again.
    A sage observation Obozo. That was one of the few statements you have ever uttered that will be proven to be true.
    You and your administration have given US a shot across the bow.
    We have seen it and will respond in the next election.

  6. As energy costs continue to rise — I expect that trend all the way to Election Day — Obama’s chances for re-election diminish.

    However, so do OUR chances for remaining solvent households.

      Hope your right On Watch.
      Notice the morons ( I’m sorry, schoolchildren,) that appear to be his favorite audience aside from the Hollywood elites that have lost all concept of a work ethic.
      He does it because it’s EASY.
      Hey Barry, give a speech in front of some of the unemployed, I dare ya’ !
      Give a speech in front of a crowd of Vets, I dare ya’.
      Fly in there on your 747 and tell them that they have to buck up and pay higher energy bills,… tell them that they have to give more.
      I dare ya’.

      Never happen, he’s a puss, nothing more, possibly less.
