Obama Did Not "Short Change" Community Colleges Until Education Activists Call Him Out On It

As the NPR report above details - President Obama promised the American community college system $12 billion during his 2010 "State Of The Union Speech".

He went to the Democratic Controlled House and Senate and they provided nada.
The promised $12 billion was whittled down to $2 billion when all was said and done.

One thing that was different, however, was that there was no organized ranting about "Obama having SHORT CHANGED education, despite what he promised".

Back when "No Child Left Behind" was in full effect (it still is) I noted how it seemed that a group of Democrats had gotten into a room and figured out a set of talking points to attack the enemy president at the time. Despite the enemy president having spent more money on education than his predecessor - the new standard of FAILURE was that a president had failed to spend the amount of money that he promised. There was no reference at the time to the part that Congress plays in the appropriation game.

To be clear - this post is NOT ABOUT OBAMA!!!

This entire blog is about how certain operatives have changed "After Obama".
With careful monitoring of their antics we can see, without a doubt, that their goal is not to actually attain the "permanent interests" that they claim. Theirs is only an ideological "scorched earth" game.

That $12 billion? That assisted Obama in registering an "A" in the Essence Magazine opinion poll about Obama's education policies. It had NOTHING to do with the facts on the street regarding education though.

Regardless Of How The Economy, War, Employment, Or Debt Is In 2012 We're Voting For Obama

Those Republican Tea Party Bastard Confederates!!!


Too Liberal For Obama - But We Still Are Going To Vote For Him In 2012

Update: My favorite posting:

Update 10/29/10:

Black Agenda Report, one of the first sites to warn of Obama's conservatism, is now featuring 2L4O shirts!

I beg one of you lefties - check the tag and see if these shirts are made in America or Indonesia?

Latest update: 12/28/10 at 11:21PM ET. See below.

Note: Due to popular demand, we've added a new line of shirts that read: "2L4O: Too Left for Obama" — now in stock, and all pre-ordered shirts have shipped!

For some of us, "liberal" is a word to wear proudly (perhaps in the form of a "2L4O: Too Liberal for Obama" shirt). Others prefer to describe their politics using a "left"-oriented word (lefty, leftist, etc.). Whichever is your preferred term, we hope a 2L4O shirt will help you start a long-overdue conversation about President Obama's Bush-like agenda.

* * *

Every day, more left-of-center Americans conclude that Barack Obama doesn't represent their liberal values. Yet the mainstream media still treats President Obama's left-side critics as all-but-non-existent.

If you exist, and if you want others to recognize that Obama is mistaken to neglect the liberal base — both for our support and for the advantages of liberal policy — deck yourself out in 2L4O shirt!

When you order, be sure to specify which blog sent you here, and a portion of the proceeds will go to that blog.

Many thanks to for being the first site to promote 2L4O merchandise! If you're interested in having your site participate, please drop me a line at vastleft AT vastleft DOT com.

(Racist) Robber Wearing Obama Mask In Austria Captured On Video

"Obama robber" hits Austria banks

VIENNA – Say, isn't that the president with a gun in his hand? Actually, no, but it sure looks like it.

Austrian authorities are searching for a bank robber who uses an unusual disguise: He wears a Barack Obama mask during his holdups.

Police say the man, nicknamed the "Obama Robber" by local media, is wanted for six heists since 2008. The most recent took place Thursday in the hamlet of Handenberg, where the Obama-resembling suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of money after threatening bank employees with a gun.

Police official Markus Mitloehner said Friday that the man is thought to be a local since he speaks the regional dialect — with nary a trace of Obama's more professorial accent.

Obama's Magical Powers Extend To His Ability To Reverse His Age

On January 19 - President Barack Obama found what many European explorers had sought but failed to find - The Fountain of Youth.

He drank of it and promised to sell "Obama Coffee Cups" full of its youth giving waters just in time to raise money for his 2012 campaign.

Conservative Vice Lords Want To Inspire The Youth Again - Just As Obama Did

If we focus upon the excitement and hope rather than dispassionate analysis of the benefits that were received as a result of the "accomplished mission" - then surely the prospects of "rinse and repeat" seem attractive.

As long as there is "congregational agreement" to not look at the underlying interests and if they have been met - then the notion of "getting that old feeling back again when Obama needs us the most" seems rational.

Everything seems rational until someone someone in the future scrutinizes their hopes and promises of the future from the vantage point of the future.

Muckraking Leftist Reporter Seymour Hersh Resurfaces In The Age Of Obama

Seymour Hersh: Military Branch Being Run By 'Crusaders'

There you are, old friend.  I was looking out for you and Jonathan Kozol.  I wondered what your voice and disposition would be when you had a "favorable president' to you in power yet you needed to show consistency because little has changed.  (Wars/Foreign policy - with Hersh and Educational outcomes with respect to Kozol).

Not surprisingly Mr Hersh did what I expected him to.  Where as Bush WAS a part of the rogue forces that had hijacked this nation's policies and institutions, Mr Hersh is forced to point to how these rogue elements are still operating DESPITE President Obama being in office.  Obama needs to root them out because they are working "in his name".

Please recall that Hersh told us that the Bush military was going to invade Iran.  I wonder if these plans are still in place or does Obama give him cover to say "I was not wrong - a more sensible administration came in..........IF McCain were in office - we'd have boots in Iran - just as I had predicted". 

Sadly these are the people who are the bigots that you all need to review.  They are able to express the existence of "Organic Evil" in their ideological enemies.  When it comes to Obama executing the same war strategy - this destruction is not intrinsic to his nature.  He was HANDED a situation that he had to deal with.

Obama Inc Avoids The Same Attacks Upon His Corporate Associations That His Based Lobbed Upon Their Common Adver

Obama's Anti-Corporate Base Spews Words Of Anger Against His Association With Jeff Immelt

This move by the Obama Administration to sure up its relationship with the corporations that it has based for so long, seeking to punitively regulate them, should be seen as an affirmation in support of the position of his long time ideological adversaries.

Of course, despite the common actions that Obama has transacted akin to his immediate predecessor - Obama's base, while pissed, have no desired to attack him to the point where his poll ratings and re-election changes are dashed.

GE's Jeff Immelt - Heads Obama Economic Team / GE Scores $2B In Chinese Business Though Obama

GE Scores $2 Billion In Business In China Via Obama Administration's Efforts

Obama Chooses GE CEO Jeff Immelt To Lead Economic Recovery Panel

The Story As Reported On GE Owned "MSNBC"

Its a good thing that GE is not in the 'oil business'.  Then this relationship might be blamed for the spike in the price of gasoline.  :-/

I can only figure that the left misses the days when they had masses of "2 degrees of separation" between Bush and big corporations.   Now they can't seem to connect the dots.

Jerome Corsi Vs Bev Smith & Barack Obama

Bev Smith Show host goes off script - dares to inspect "President Barack Obama's" administration and policies as a CONTINUUM of past presidents rather than a "ray of HOPE that CHANGE" would be in order.
I wish I had recorded this episode.   Listening to it for yourself would do more justice than what I could present here.
The format was as such - Dr Jerome Corsi was to talk about China and how America is becoming increasingly indebted and dependent upon this "communist" nation.  He started out good as he bashed:

  • Corporations
  • Did not rebut Bev Smith's insertion of how President Nixon (R) had opened the door to relations with China which now has us in a situation where we "gave away the jewels"
  • Bash China for its lack of Labor Laws
All the while Bev Smith was interjecting her outrage at "those bastards".
But hold up now!!   Corsi stepped in it when he INCLUDED "President Obama" in the list of criticisms. 
  • Obama has had TWO straight years of DEFICIT budents"
  • "Obamacare" continues this ENTITLEMENT spending mentality that is bringing Europe to its knees financially

Bill O'Reilly has nothing on Bev Smith in regards to rebutting a guest in the voice of his favored politicians.  Like Pavlov's dog - each "inclusion" of Obama in the "President's Club" where he is sitting in the captains chair was RESPONDED TO with a 4 letter word:   "B.U.S.H."!!!!

I am honestly not sure if Ms Smith knows the difference between a "deficit" and "debt".   Sure the Obama Administration can coyly claim that the Oct 2008-Sept 2009 budget that Bush and the Democratic Congress had managed from Oct to Jan 20th was an "inherited" hot potato.   When it comes to the Oct 2009 - Sept 2010 budget passed by a Democratic Congress and signed by a Democratic President there is no spin that is permissible.   Add to this that the Progressive "Moses" named Paul Krugman who demanded a BIGGER government bailout - the 2 each $1 trillion+ DEFICITS that Corsi talked about would have been even larger.

As I listened to Bev Smith on this occasion I heard a:

  • Obama Press Secretary
  • An Ideologue
  • A Bigot
  • An Automaton 
all wrapped into one package.  It ultimately DIDN'T MATTER that the cliff's edge was near.  As long as a Republican Tea-Party member was to receive the blame - all was comforted.

When Dr Corsi went into details about how ENTITLEMENT SPENDING is the "Out of Control Growth" element of the budget it was as if some one had pulled the window shades up and blinded Ms Smith to REALITY.   She was at a loss to find a rebuttal

How much did BUSH spend on the wars?
How much did BUSH AND CHENEY spend on the "Interior Department"(?????)
How much did they gut the Energy Department?

Smith said "The new TEA PARTY MEMBERS of Congress just went back on their promise against EAR MARKS.......................I have my interns WATCHING THEM"

Can I ask you all a question?
Do you think that Bev Smith has anyone WATCHING Detroit or Camden?

I 'get it' that the "Tea Party members are BIGOTS".  
What do we call Bev Smith and others who doggedly invest their time into watching them, forsaking other issues that they SHOULD BE monitoring?    At minimum they are "Mall Cops".

Bev Smith NEEDED Jerome Corsi to say "Barack Obama INHERITED a mess from the REPUBLICANS and he is doing yeoman's work to fix what BUSH has destroyed".      You see when you deal with a cast of associates who know how to TAKE A QUE based on your provocative and leading questions and then you have a person who 'doesn't  get the hint'  - that wall of TALKING POINTS that your audience grew accustom to which AUTHENTICATED their world view - gets some small cracks in its window glazing. 

It was to the point of comedy when Bev Smith ran down the list of presidents that had "Harmed America and its workers".  She skipped over Carter and Clinton in her narrative. 

The stuff really hit the fan when Corsi said "Obama's lack of BUSINESS EXPERIENCE is showing through as he is not likely to sit at the negotiating table with China and pay hard ball".  Corsi used DONALD TRUMP as a key reference on how it needs to be done.  

Did you really need for me to tell you that the first thing out of Bev Smith's mouth was "GEORGE BUSH"?
"Well Bush did not have any real BUSINESS EXPERIENCE either".  
You see - this is the type of consciousness that is present among many people.  They believe that the counter-point to that which they feel "threatened" by is to find some attribute in their ENEMY that did not pass muster.  In bringing this forth they feel pacified.   In truth the counter-point to the challenge about Obama's "negotiating acumen" would have been for Bev Smith to AGREE that this nation is in a world of hurt and for her to ARTICULATE what it is our "head of state" NEEDS TO DO.  Then she could detail Obama's strengths and weaknesses in this area and suggest some administration resources that he could bring along with him.

When such a person "lives vicariously" through Obama - her effectiveness as an agent of the best interests of America is shot.

What was her solution?   Force "AMERICAN" companies to bring their production operations back to the USA using a combination of oppressive taxation and subsidy.

As a person from the Pittsburgh area it is amazing to listen to the fact that she doesn't "get it".    As we pierce the labor left talking point that CORPORATE GREED was the only reason for their movements - we should look at the force that was on the other side of the negotiating table.  They made the LABOR costs too high to justify and the companies responded to this intractable force.

What we need to do is to calculate the COSTS that have been suffered by Flint and Detroit and Camden and  East St Louis and Oakland and ask "IS the hard ball negotiating tactics and threats of a labor shut down WORTH IT now that the rank & file bear so much of the cost that their labor leaders has triggered?"

I have no confidence in many of the voices that present themselves as the "Black Press/Media".   It is so clear what their agenda is.   They merely just need to be forced to see the harm that they render upon our people WHEN THEY 'WIN'.

Note To Dr Hill - When You Call The "President Of The USA A Murderer" - Make Sure You Note That It Was Bush That Forced Obama Into Being A Murderer


Clearly Dr Marc Lamont Hill did not pay attention to what happened to Tavis Smiley after expressing the audacity to believe that "The Commander In Chief's" "murderous actions" should be carefully avoided unless it is an indictment against an adversarial occupant.

If Dr Hill had said those words and added "...................yet despite this I still plan on voting for him in 2012 because this murderer gave us health care so that some who died under Republican presidents will now live" it would have been less hurtful to the "Obama manhood protectors".

In any case someone had better revoke Dr Hill's free pass to go on Fox News and not be criticized as Juan Williams receives.

Michael Eric Dyson: "Obama Runs From Race Like Blacks Run From The Cops"

Please keep in mind that this is the same radio host named Michael Eric Dyson who announced his intention to vote for the reelection of President Obama for 2012............back in February 2009 - less than a full month into Obama's term.  Please take this with a grain of salt.  It is merely rhetoric with the goal of drawing Obama further to the left and pay them some attention.  It is not a shot across Obama's bow.

Dyson and others are INCAPABLE of defining a TRANSPARENT set of mandates in support of their PERMANENT INTERESTS for this would require that they not only put individual politicians and parties on trial.....they would have to put their beloved PROGRESSIVE THEORIES on trial, being made to prove its effectiveness.

Michael Eric Dyson: “Obama Runs From Race Like Blacks From Cops”

Senator Obama On The Federal Debt Limit

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.... Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”—- Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), March 20, 2006
