Another day another batch of evidence backing up Don Surber in the news

Can you say “Veto Proof“?

The president has put his feet in cement in opposition to the Keystone oil pipeline. But on Capitol Hill, more and more Democrats are joining Republicans to force approval of the pipeline, whether Obama wants it or not.

The latest action happened Wednesday, when the House passed a measure to move the pipeline forward. Before the vote, Obama issued a veto threat. The House approved the pipeline anyway — by a veto-proof majority, 293 to 127. Sixty-nine Democrats abandoned the president to vote with Republicans. That’s a lot of defections.

and in the senate the democrat majority they are resorting to the filibuster to keep this from getting a vote

Democrats are using the filibuster to stop the pipeline, which means 60 votes are required to pass it. (Some Democrats who bitterly opposed the filibuster when Republicans used it against Obama initiatives are notably silent these days.) In a vote last month, 11 Senate Democrats stood up against Obama to vote in favor of the pipeline. Add those 11 to the Republicans’ 47 votes, and the pro-pipeline forces are just a couple of votes away from breaking Harry Reid’s filibuster.

“We’re right around the corner from actually passing it,” says a well-informed Senate source.

and if you are thinking: Hey that’s conservative Byron York can’t trust what that guy says, here is the headline from the New York Times:

Democrats Joining G.O.P. on Pipeline

You know members of congress usually move toward a popular president, not away from him.

One second thought maybe Obamacare wasn’t such a good idea

Nearly two years after tea party members and the voters showed that Obamacare was not the best idea in the world congressional democrats are finally saying so aloud:

“I think we would all have been better off — President Obama politically, Democrats in Congress politically, and the nation would have been better off — if we had dealt first with the financial system and the other related economic issues and then come back to healthcare,” said Rep. Brad Miller (D-N.C.), who is retiring at the end of this Congress.

It’s no coincidence that Miller and the three other democrats reps quoted in this piece Reps Dennis Cardoza, Barney Frank & Norm Dicks are all retiring before election 2012. Former Dem Rep Arthur Davis puts it best:

“I think the Affordable Care Act is the single least popular piece of major domestic legislation in the last 70 years. It was not popular when it passed; it’s less popular now,”

Shhhh don’t tell they MSM, what they are still in denial.

Item: What they are seeing across the water.

The US press has done yeoman work to keep bad news and damaging stories out the MSM, however our friends across the pond have no such compunction:

If you viewed all this solely through the prism of media coverage and listened just to Washington pundits, you’d conclude that Obama has about an 80 percent chances of victory. In reality, his chances are much closer to 50:50, perhaps even with Romney holding an advantage (though many things can and will happen in six months).

This cognitive dissonance is partly because of a liberal tilt but also because most reporters and talking heads live in bubbles of comfortable affluence insulated from the economic pain most Americans are facing.

Even without factoring in the likely negative political impact of, say, Obamacare being struck down by the Supreme Court in June, Obama’s re-election bid is already in deep trouble.

Alas the poor media when Romney takes the oath of office in January (despise the Mormon business that the left will continue to use in increasing panic) my message remains the same:


Ride Right Through them, they’re demoralized as Hell!

When the mask falls away it will fall away all at once, and it will be delightful.

Big Bang Theory 2012

For the last several days on Facebook on twitter and during at least one segment on Morning Joe there has been unrestrained laughter concerning the president and his youthful culinary choices all those years ago.

We’ve seen posts, tweets on Obama dog recipes , a vast array of Photoshops, the return of the puppy blender meme and cartoons like this one:

and a return of the puppy blender meme , we’ve had dogs against Obama and the amusing spectacle of “Dogs against Romney” blogger insisting that eating your dog is no big dealI’m the dish of the day, can I interest you in parts of my body?”

Odd that I don’t see any comments questioning his defense of the president, you would think he is not allowing contrary opinions or something?

We’ve also seen some serious questions too; Why didn’t media who rushed to pick up his book Dreams of my Father know this (I think they did but team Obama counted on their silence) , How does this damage the president long term “the one thing everybody will remember is Obama ate a dog”, What does it mean for leftist comedians , and of course the media double standard:

See, when Romney puts a dog on a car roof, it’s a job for Diane Sawyer. When Obama eats one*, it’s a goofy Jeanne Moos story. And isn’t it interesting that an incident from 1983 couldn’t be more current, but quoting one of Obama’s books is “dredging” it up? Guess it all depends on which party is embarrassed about it.

which is why the MSM wants to let sleeping dogs lie (their words not mine).

All of these questions are interesting, but they are missing the only real question that matters:

Are Obama eating dog jokes still funny?

After seeing this tweet from John McCain and the outraged twitter reaction of the left to it:

Yep still funny.

Heh HEH!
