OMG! "The One" Has Become a,..a....REPUBLICAN!!

President Obama, in one of his most dramatic gestures to business, will propose that companies be allowed to write off 100 percent of their new investment in plant and equipment through 2011, a plan that White House economists say would cut business taxes by nearly $200 billion over two years.

The proposal, to be laid out Wednesday in a speech in Cleveland, tops a raft of announcements, from a proposed expansion of the research and experimentation tax credit to $50 billion in additional spending on roads, railways and runways. But unlike those two ideas, both familiar from Obama's 2008 campaign, the investment incentive would embrace a long-held wish by conservative economists that had never won support from either Republican or Democratic administrations.

"Temporary investment incentives like this can have big effects because they really pull investment forward," R. Glenn Hubbard, dean of the Columbia University School of Business and a former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under President George W. Bush. "This could have a big stimulative effect."

Forget the Birthers, Someone Call Area 51!

The deepening notes of disenchantment with Barack Obama now issuing from commentators across the political spectrum were predictable. So, too, were the charges from some of the president's earliest enthusiasts about his failure to reflect a powerful sense of urgency about the oil spill.

A great part of America now understands that this president's sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class. He is the alien in the White House, a matter having nothing to do with delusions about his birthplace cherished by the demented fringe.

All His Friends Are Leaving Now,....

'Hope' Artist No Longer an Obama Fan
The prez isn't really living up to Shepard Fairey's expectations

How quickly things change. Shepard Fairey, creator of the iconic Barack Obama ‘Hope’ poster, is no longer feeling quite so smitten with the prez, the New York Post reports. “Washington is too intertwined with corporate America,” Fairey said at a recent show opening. “I had a lot of hope for Obama, but it's not panning out. He's not pushing hard enough.”

Cantcha Take a Joke?

Obama despised, even in Australia?

THE Liberal National Party has kicked out a student member who called Barack Obama a “monkey” on Twitter, an action he defended as a “political joke”.

The tweets, from an account belonging to Griffith University medical student Nick Sowden, began just after 7.30pm (AEST) on Thursday, during Kerry O'Brien's interview with the US President on the ABC's 7.30 Report.

“I'm not sure why they paid kerry to fly to america (sic), if they wanted an interview with a monkey surely a ferry to Taronga would have sufficed,” one tweet said, referring to Taronga Zoo on Sydney Harbour.

“If I wanted to see a monkey on TV I'd watch Wildlife Rescue,” said another.

Queensland LNP state director Michael O'Dwyer told AAP the party did not tolerate such comments.

“I'm disappointed when anybody from the LNP makes comments that put the party into disrepute and of such a personal nature,” Mr O'Dwyer said.

For the record: This blog does not condone the racist statements about the President's race, merely to point out his lack of global popularity.
