Jennifer Rubin Opens Yap

Does Barack Obama understand capitalism? This is a legitimate question that Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post would like answered, given that Obama is a Socialist bully who uses intemperate language and who is NEVER EVER THERE for America’s bff Israel and MIGHT take powers granted to him by Obamacare to legislate “new and previously unimaginable infringements on individual liberty and decimating the federal structure of our government.“ His recent attacks on poor, defenseless Bain Capital can only mean one thing: Obama does not understand Capitalism, because duh. …[Bain’s] “brand” of capitalism is capitalism, and in its undiluted state does create hardship, but nothing in comparison to the amount of suffering inherent in other, less successful economic models. Two points should be kept in mind. First, we don’t have undiluted capitalism precisely because, while capitalism is the greatest wealth-creator the world has ever known (I think Obama even said this), we don’t as a compassionate society want undue suffering in the short term. Hence, we have unemployment insurance and an array of social safety-net programs. Look, do you want to live in “other, less successful economic models” — like the kind of social democracy they have in Sweden, where everyone has free health care and education and paid maternity leave? DO YOU? Do you EVEN KNOW what kind of freedom and liberty you’d lose? And the suffering, my god, the suffering. Because nothing compares to the amount of suffering you see amongst those Swedish commie socialist pinkos, not even the minimal amount of suffering you might see in undiluted capitalism, which we don’t even HAVE.

Obama Just Cold Trolling Conservatives With Obama-Centric Reagan Bio

We at Your Wonkette found it kind of tacky and ridiculous when we read everywhere that some tone-deaf deciderer on Obama’s communications staff had decidered to update each former president’s biography with references to Bamz himself. A little hubristic, fellows, no? But that was before we saw that this included even St. Ronald Reagan! And oh, everyone is just spitting mad! What is in Reagan’s White House bio now? Simply that he joins Obama from beyond the grave in calling for the Buffett Rule. FUCK YEAH GHOST RONALD REAGAN! All is forgiven, Obama communications staff. Have fun trolling all the Breitards!

Boehner: How Is Obama Diminishing The Presidency Today? By Picking ‘Fake Fights’

Another day, another attempt by that punk Barack Hussein Nobama to diminish the presidency! What’d he do now? Did he put his feet up on his desk? Did he sing Young Jeezy in public? Did he fly in his plane? Did he act “cool”? (Yes. Burn him.) “You know, we had the Buffett Rule,” [House Speaker John] Boehner said. “You know, it went on for months. Even the president admitted it was a gimmick. And then we have the Rose Garden ceremony talking about manipulation in the oil markets, without one shred of evidence. And he has an entire administration to go after speculation or manipulation in the oil markets. And then they picked this student loan fight where there is no fight.” Remember the Buffett Rule? It was a total gimmick because it would only have raised $43 billion in revenues, and $43 billion does not even count unless it is $100 million from PBS and the NEA instead, because $100 million > $43 billion. (It is called MATH and why don’t you LEARN IT.) Read more on Boehner: How Is Obama Diminishing The Presidency Today? By Picking ‘Fake Fights’…

The Refuterer: Margaret Thatcher Was Not Actually Ronald Reagan’s Secretary

ConservativeOutcry.net has our number, along with a new feature, “Wonkette Refuted,” responding to a “randomly chosen” article from Your Wonkette! The first victim? GOP To Ronald Reagan’s Secretary: Pay Those Taxes Harder! Unfortunately, this self-described “group of old men lamenting the destruction of the nation” seems to be unfamiliar with how the actual process of refuting is done. Since there are so many refutes in this very excellent and soundly argued article (2.5), we will simply never be able to address them all, and will have to mostly limit ourselves to their primary “refute” from Old Man Rooster, concerning the picture accompanying the article, as well as the “hover tag” (fancy internet speak, don’t worry about it): First, I think it should be noted that picture accompanying the piece is of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, not Reagan and his secretary as one is led to believe when hovering over it with a mouse. Can’t even get the picture right? Read more on The Refuterer: Margaret Thatcher Was Not Actually Ronald Reagan’s Secretary…

GOP To Ronald Reagan’s Secretary: Pay Those Taxes Harder!

Hey girl. You probably already heard that the GOP blocked the Buffett Rule, the “political” “gimmick” that says millionaires have to pay as much in taxes as Ronald Reagan’s secretary. Everyone knows that making millionaires pay the same rate as losers like you means punishing them for their success. ONLY YOU ARE TO BE PUNISHED, because we know you like it. Pay those taxes! Yeah, yeah, pay ’em harder! Read more on GOP To Ronald Reagan’s Secretary: Pay Those Taxes Harder!…

Here Is Your Weekend Video Of Ronald Reagan Being A Total Communist

Why is Ronald Reagan always trying to wage class warfare on executives paying less than their secretaries? Why does he want to punish people for success, by making them pay the same tax rate as a bunch of unemployed losers, like you? Why does Ronald Reagan hate Mitt Romney, and America? Maybe when he was naming names to Joseph McCarthy and HUAC he should have named HIMSELF! Watch Ronald Reagan gay-marry Barack Obama and Warren Buffett (Mormon-style!) after the jump!
