A Tale of Two Joes

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher better known by the nickname "Joe the Plumber", is an American conservative activist, commentator and politician. He gained national attention during the 2008 U.S. presidential election when, during a videotaped campaign stop in Ohio by then-Democratic candidate Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya, Wurzelbacher asked Obama about his small business tax policy, and Obama gave a response that included the statement, "when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody."

Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. better known by the nickname "Joe the Dope" is the 47th and current Vice President of the United States, serving under President Barack Obama, D-Kenya. An Ultra Liberal Democrat, he was a United States Senator from Delaware from January 3, 1973 until his resignation on January 15, 2009, following his election to the Vice Presidency.  Joe Biden had two unsuccessful bid for the White House ( in 1988 and 2008) in both years he was literally laughed out of the race. Many analysts feel Obama selected Biden as his running mate because it would drastically reduce the odds of any assassination attempt.

Ironically, while both men are bald, Joe the Plumber prefers to shave his head, while Joe the Dumber, who is incredibly vain, spent $146,000 on hair transplant plugs.

Who is the biggest primary spender in the 2012 election?

If you believe what Newt Gingrich told you, then Mitt Romney has purchased the GOP nomination by outspending his rivals. And on the surface, this might be true because he has spent more money on his primary campaign than any of them.

Some people make it sound like spending money in an election campaign is a bad thing, even though they know that President Obama will outspend the Republican challenger by a wide margin. Clearly, the easiest way to lose an election is to have a campaign that is "underfunded."

The question really should be whether a candidate is spending money wisely, not how much they spend. If you look at what was achieved for that spending, then Romney becomes a pretty prudent spender. Ron Paul has by far spent the most money and gotten the worst results of any candidate. Rick Santorum has spent the least... per delegate won, per vote won and per state won.

We all know that our elected leaders spend a lot of money. And we usually judge them by "what they get for the money they spent" rather than "the absolute amount of money they spent." So far, Ron Paul has spent a lot of money, and gotten very little in return.

Newt Gingrich has spent almost three times as much as Romney did for every state he won. And since we have an Electoral College, you can only win the White House by winning states, one by one. Ron Paul has won no states, and Newt Gingrich has won exactly two. This cannot be called using money efficiently.

But the all time biggest spender in this election so far isn't a Republican, it is President Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya. President Obama is running virtually unopposed in the Democrat primary race and has still somehow managed to spend $40 million, which is more than twice as much as Mitt Romney spent, and Romney had to run against seven other candidates... while Barack Obama was unopposed!

It is important to remember that "spending less" during an election campaign could guarentee defeat, because the Democrats are well funded by their close ties with Wall Street brokerages and banks, their strong support from corrupt corporations who want more taxpayer bailouts, their campaign donations from big powerful unions, and their strong backing by billionaires who want the middle class to pay all the taxes.

Here is a breakdown of campaign money collected so far by all the candidates...

Barack Obama.....$196 million
Mitt Romney................$88 million
Ron Paul.....................$36 million
Newt Gingrich.............$23 million
Rick Santorum............$21 million
Rick Perry...................$20 million
Herman Cain..............$16 million
Michelle Bachmnan.....$7 million
Tim Pawlenty...............$6 million
John Huntsman............$4 million

That's how much they collected. Now lets look at how much they have spent. The most recent figure I could find is through the end of last year. Without a doubt President Obama has spent even more in the last three months...

According to the Washington Post, as of Jan 1, the president running unopposed has spent over $120 million so far, which is more than TWICE as much as all his Republican challengers combined. And he has plenty more to spend, and still has lots of wealthy donors, corporate friends and special interest groups that want to keep him in power for four more years.

President Obama Loves Dogs; Especially When Grilled

"Young dogs are the most tender and tasty"
Washington DC, Apr 19, 2012. The Obama campaign has made a big fuss about Mitt Romney driving from Boston to Canada with his dog Seamus in a travel crate on the roof of his car.

The Obama campaign is suggesting that dog lovers should object to this, and vote for President Obama instead.

But it now seems that President Obama really is a genuine dog lover. In fact, in his autobiography he claims to have eaten dog meat!

In President Barack Hussein Obama’s, D-Kenya, best-selling memoir, “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance,” the president recalls eating dog meat as a young boy in Indonesia with his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro.

“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy),” the president wrote.

“Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”

Taking Bo out for dinner?
After his mother married Soetoro, Obama lived in Indonesia from 1967 until 1971, from roughly the age of 6 through 10. 

The discovery that the president had eaten dog meat prompted wise-cracks on twitter and this tweet from Romney strategist Eric Fehrstrom, who re-tweeted Axelrod’s original message with a different take on the picture of the president and Bo.

“@EricFehrn: In hindsight, a chilling photo,” he wrote. (photo at right).

Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt tweeted in response: “@BenLaBolt What’s the next attack @EricFerhn and the RNC will surface on a 6-10 year old?”

Democrats and supporters of the president’s forcefully took to twitter Tuesday night and Wednesday morning to challenge the notion that Obama as a boy eating food given to him by his stepfather could be compared to actions Romney took as an adult.

Republicans pushed back, saying that the dog-eating tale underlines how any discussion of dogs at a time of massive unemployment, with troops in harm’s way, is silly.

The Seamus story was discussed again Monday when Ann Romney told Diane Sawyer that “the dog loved” traveling that way.

“He would see that crate and, you know, he would, like, go crazy because he was going with us on vacation. It was to me a kinder thing to bring him along than to leave him in the kennel for two weeks.”

Former President Shocked by Secret Service Sex Scandal

"I can't believe Obama allowed this to happen"
NYC, Apr 18, 2012. Former President Bill Clinton expressed his shock and outrage over the current Secret Service sex scandal plaguing the Obama Administration today.

"Look, I enjoy prostitutes as much as the next guy, but Obama should have used better judgement in this case," the former two term president told us in an exclusive interview.

"When I was President the Secret Service knew it was their job to stay on the ball. The only one fooling around was me. Obama has the whole thing backwards. He works, and they play. That's the wrong way to do it."

"This just shows you what happens when you put an amateur in an important job," Mr. Clinton continued. "He just lacks the command ability and control over his boys. But this is what you get when you elect a community organizer rather than a real governor like I was. Hillary was right. He just wasn't ready."

"That Mitt Romney guy is no player... just like Barack, but I doubt he would let things get out of hand like this. He was a governor so he knows how to exercise authority over his subordinates. Things will be pretty dull when he wins the election, but at least you won't see scandals like this one."

"The worst part of this whole shameful episode is that Barack is the only one who didn't get any. And believe me, those Colombian prostitutes are pretty hot. I know this from my own personal experience during my state visit to Bogata in 1995. You really have to give those Latina women credit."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the former President's estranged wife, had no comment on the sordid affair, saying "This isn't within the scope of my job duties."

Still no budget!: Democrat Senate Laziest in 20 Years.

Harry Reid: "It would be foolish to pass a budget."
Washington DC, Apr 16, 2012. It has been almost 1000 days since Sen. Harry Reid, D-NV, and the Democrat Majority in Congress have passed a Federal budget.

Instead, the Democrat Senate is enacting continuing resolutions, to keep the government running, and piling on the national debt. They are ignoring their responsibility, all to the detriment of the American people.

The budget process forces Congress to set spending priorities to protect the people’s money and put it to its appropriate use. 

The result of this is that the deficit is soaring, causing a massive tax burden on future generations, and causing economic uncertainty, hindering job creation. It’s no wonder the U.S. economy’s growth has stagnated.

As the 1,000th day nears, here are some facts about America’s budget and why the Senate must take action to be stewards of the people’s money as the Constitution requires. The last time the Senate passed a budget was on April 29, 2009. Since that date, the federal government has spent $9.4 trillion, adding $4.1 trillion in debt.

The Democrat controlled Senate has failed to execute the most basic, fundamental function of governance at the worst possible time.
President Obama sets the tone by golfing and vacationing
The country’s fiscal house is in disarray, the U.S. credit rating is in continual jeopardy, entitlement spending is ballooning, defense spending is on the chopping block, and the economy is in shambles.

One thousand days without a budget is an embarrassing number, but the level of spending, deficits, and taxation that results from the Senate’s failure to exact even a modicum of fiscal discipline is terrifying. 

Senator Reid has said it would be “foolish” to pass a budget, but failing to pass it is proving to be beyond irresponsible. The middle class will be left holding the bag, paying for the Senate’s reckless negligence with soaring deficits, higher taxes, and a weak economy as far as the eye can see.

For those who need proof that the Senate was a do-nothing chamber in 2011 beyond the constant partisan bickering and failure to pass a federal budget, there is now hard evidence that it was among the laziest in 20 years.

In her latest report, Secretary of the Senate Nancy Erickson revealed a slew of data that put the first session of the 112th Senate at the bottom of Senates since 1992 in legislative productivity, an especially damning finding considering that it wasn’t an election year when congressional action is usually lower.

For example, while the Democratically-controlled Senate was in session for 170 days, it spent an average of just 6.5 hours in session on those days, the second lowest since 1992. Only 2008 logged a lower average of 5.4 hours a day, and that’s when action was put off because several senators were running for president, among them Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain.
Some of the laziest Democrats
On the passage of public laws, which is its most important job, the Senate passed just 90 bills, the second lowest in 20 years, and it passed a total of 402 measures, also the second lowest.
And as the president has been complaining about, the chamber confirmed a 20-year low of 19,815 judicial and other nominations.

Gore/Olberman Trial: Huge Payday for Cable TV

Two progressive goofballs will square off in court
Los Angeles, Apr 7, 2012.  The pending lawsuits and counter suits between Keith Olbermann and Al Gore are shaping up to be a ratings bonanza for cable television broadcasters that could eventually dwarf the revenues they earned from the OJ Simpson trial in 1995.

Current TV on Friday counter-sued former host Keith Olbermann, claiming he failed to perform his duties for the progressive television network and saying it does not owe him "a dime" of the millions Olbermann claims he is owed.

Current claims that Olbermann "had failed to infiltrate the OWS movement, as he had promised he would."  The network was hoping for an insider view of the whacky protest group that could boost their ratings.

Both Current and Olbermann, who hosted his program "Countdown" on the network, have been locked in a war of words and legal filings since last week, when Current fired the commentator claiming he had breached his contract.

Current even alleges that Olbermann actually refused to ride on Current's float that the San Francisco Gay Parade unless he was paid extra to do so. "We paid him hansomly to represent us at all important progressive functions, and now he wanted more money just to do his job," Al Gore told us.

The liberal firebrand sued the network on Thursday seeking as much as $70 million he says he is owed for compensation and an equity stake he was given in the fledgling network.

Janet Reno
A bidding war has broken out between tru-TV (formerly Court-TV), CNBC, and CNN's own HLN station for the broadcasting rights. The bidding could escalate into the hundreds of millions based on the huge ratings potential some experts are forecasting for these trials.

CNBC projects that if they can secure the rights to broadcast the trial, their ratings could climb into "the hundreds, if not thousands of viewers."

Both Gore and Olbermann are colorful and entertaining leftwing ideologues who could provide a strong ratings boost for any cable station that secures the broadcast rights.

 "The broadcast rights to these trials could make or break a cable station," one cable executive told us on the condition of anonymity. 
Alan Dershowitz
Celebrity attorneys are already being planned by both sides. Former VP Al Gore has secured high powered legal expert former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno to represent him. "I'm hoping that Reno can really shake things up for our side," Mr. Gore told us.

Keith Olbermann has retained constitutional scholar and expert Alan Dershowitz to head his legal team. The Olbermann legal team will be calling both Ed Schultz and Rachel Madcow as character wittnesses for the beleagured and often fired Keith Olbermann.

In a bizarre twist, Olbermann's legal team is planning to call Gore's former wife Tipper to the stand as a character wittness against Gore. Former President Bill Clinton has also hinted that he "will be available to testify for either side, if the price is right."

Available for right price
Current TV says that they are no longer obligated to pay a dime to Mr. Olbermann who, having already been paid handsomely for showing up sporadically and utterly failing to keep his end of the bargain.

Among the key allegations Current cites is that Olbermann took unauthorized vacation time - the network said he worked only 19 of 41 business days in January and February - and refused to work on Current's U.S. presidential caucus and primary election coverage as he was asked to do.

Current claims it first notified Olbermann he was in breach of contract back in October of 2011, but problems persisted.
Olbermann was appointed chief news officer at Current, took an equity stake in the channel that was originally launched in 2005, and became its biggest celebrity draw. But his nightly show attracted only an average 177,000 viewers - a fraction of the audience who watched him previously on MSNBC.

Judge Andrew Napolitano
FoxNews is planning to launch a special new show devoted to doing in depth analysis of these trials hosted by former Judge Andrew Napolitano and legal expert Greta Van Susteren called "Clash of the Progressive Titans."

No matter who wins the broadcast rights, Keith Olbermann is demanding a "7.5% royalty share" for the use of his "name, testimony, and images." 

This could evolve into a separate lawsuit between Olbermann and the eventual winner of the bidding war.

Fake Nigerian Banker Funds Obama Reelection Effort

Obama, Assongba and Tony Z
Washington DC, Apr 2, 2012.  One of the major donors to President Barack Obama has been accused of defrauding a businessman and impersonating a bank official, creating new problems for Obama's reelection campaign as it deals with the questionable history of another top supporter.

A New York donor, Abake Assongba, and her husband Anthony "Tony Z Tiger" DeRosa, have contributed more than $50,000 to President Obama's reelection effort this year, according to Federal campaign records. But Assongba is also fending off a civil court case in Florida, where she's accused of thieving more than $650,000 to help build a multimillion-dollar home in the state – a charge her husband denies.

Assongba and her husband, Anthony J.W. DeRosa, who goes by the name "Tony Z Tiger" on Myspace,  run a charity called Abake's Foundation that distributes school supplies and food in Benin, Africa. A photo posted on Assongba's Facebook page shows the couple standing next to Obama at a May 2010 fundraiser. Assongba was listed on President Obama's campaign website as one of his volunteer fundraisers. This is an elite group of just 440 very wealthy individuals.

Obama has released his list of his campaign donation "bundlers," the financiers who raise campaign money by soliciting high-dollar contributions from friends and associates. But that disclosure has not come without snags; his campaign returned $200,000 last month to Carlos and Alberto Cardona, the brothers of a Mexican fugitive wanted on federal drug charges.

Tony Z Tiger and Assonga
Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt declined comment to The Associated Press. He instead referred the Associated Press to previous statements he made to The Washington Post, which first reported the allegations against Assongba in its Sunday editions.

LaBolt told the paper 1.3 million Americans have donated to the campaign, and that it addresses issues with contributions promptly.

In one Florida case, which is still ongoing, Swiss businessman Klaus-Werner Pusch accused Assongba in 2009 of engaging him in an email scam involving a large inheritance. After all the necessary bank fees were paid, Pusch was supposed to recieve $125 million inheritance from a distant relative who had died in a plane crash. No money was ever received.

The suit alleges Assongba impersonated a bank official to do it. Pusch referred the Associated Press' questions to his attorney, who did not immediately return requests seeking comment Sunday.

The President has many problems with shady campaign donors
Abake Assongba has left a trail of debts, with a former landlord demanding in court more than $10,000 in back rent and damages for a previous apartment. She was also evicted in 2004 after owing $5,000 in rent, records show.

In an interview with the AP on Sunday, DeRosa said the allegations against his wife were untrue, although he couldn't discuss specifics because of pending litigation.

He said he and his wife were "very perturbed" by the charges.

Deja Vu: Al Gore Kicks Keith Olbermann to the Curb

"Gore is 100% wrong about this"
NYC, Apr 1, 2012. For the second time in two years radical leftwing news commentator Keith Olbermann has been fired by a leftwing TV station.

Olbermann, who was fired by MSNBC in 2011 for making undisclosed political donations in November 2010, has now been fired by Current-TV's managing directer Al Gore.

Former Vice President Al Gore’s Current TV dismissed Keith Olbermann after a year, saying "he no longer represented the channel’s values."

Current TV was “founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers,” Gore and co-founder Joel Hyatt said in a letter yesterday to viewers on the company’s website today. “Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.”

Gore to Olbermann: "You're fired!"
The progressive political outlet replaced Olbermann with former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer on a new show, “Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer.” Olbermann clashed with producers at Current TV earlier this year, refusing to anchor election segments and taking himself off the air.

Olbermann, 53, said on his Twitter account that he plans to take legal action against the channel, saying that Gore's claims “are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently.”

“For more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I’ve been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff.” But Gore insists that these problems were 100% Olbermann's fault.

But Olbermann sees it another way, and claims this dispute had nothing to do with any alleged friction between him and the TV station. "This is strictly about my ratings being a little down," Olbermann told us.

Olbermann had better ratings than Rosie
And there might be a lot of truth in that version, since Al Gore was initially thrilled when Olbermann brought his 28 loyal viewers to Current TV, effectively doubling their ratings.

Mr. Olbermann elaborated: "I realize my rating numbers have slipped from the high twenties to the low teens, but this just couldn't be helped. Two of my viewers died of natural causes, one was executed by the state of Texas, and three more were deported back to Mexico."

"If Gore had just been a little more patient I could have built my viewership back up to 30, or even 40 people per night. But he didn't give me a chance. I had better ratings than Rosie O'Donnel had on Oprah's TV station."

"Gore just wanted the ratings up so he could sell more of his fake carbon credits to the suckers."
