Fall Elections 2010 - Barack Obama - #2113 - Obama Dumps on Boehner, Says He Supports 'Lean Government or Something" - Hot Air

Alternate headline: “Confirmed: Obama all but admits that Boehner will be Speaker next year.” This is vintage Barry O in a number of ways......... Speaking of which, go see what the DNC was up to today. Passing ObamaCare hasn’t gotten their base to turn out — despite the left’s assurance that passing ObamaCare was the only way to get them to turn out — so now it’s on to Plan B, i.e. terrifying them with stories about how Rand Paul’s going to bring about the apocalypse or whatever. But then, really, what do you want them to say at this point? They’ve messed up so badly that Republican voters now outnumber Democratic ones for the first time in 80 years. In fact, Obama couldn’t even draw a capacity crowd for this speech despite the fact that it was delivered on a college campus. They’re out of rhetorical ammo. It’s kitchen sink time.

Finding Out What's In Obamacare: Premium Hikes - Hot Air - After the polls showed that the newly-passed ObamaCare bill remained deeply unpopular with voters, the Obama administration reshuffled the rollout in order to convince Americans what a great deal they would get. By “front-loading” the most popular provisions to make them effective immediately, the White House hoped that the momentum would shift to support for the one legislative achievement of Barack Obama’s turn — or at least neutralize its negative influence. Instead, ObamaCare remains as unpopular as ever, and the bill will come due just before the midterms:  Health insurers say they plan to raise premiums for some Americans as a direct result of the health overhaul in coming weeks, complicating Democrats’ efforts to trumpet their signature achievement before the midterm elections.  Read more.....

Obama Takes Aim at Republicans - Wall Street Journal -  President Barack Obama, in a combative, campaign-like speech in Parma, Ohio, conceded that his policies have "fed the perception that Washington is still ignoring the middle class," even as he castigated Republican opponents for "riding…fear and anger all the way to Election Day." The speech, at Cuyahoga Community College, was billed as a major economic address to unveil a new round of proposals to kick-start a flagging economic recovery. The president did introduce three new policy proposals the White House has been rolling out for nearly a week: $50 billion in additional infrastructure spending, a permanent and expanded research and experimentation tax credit and a measure allowing businesses to write 100% of their investment costs off their taxes through 2011.  Read more.......
