Premature judgification is rampant these days. Please note: If it persists for more than four hours, see your doctor. Or something. But enough about spoofs of epidemic GOP medical issues and, erm, shortcomings. We have gratuitous criticisms to address!
Or maybe they’re not gratuitous, but can we at least give the president time to, you know, complete his Cabinet picks before we all jump on his choices?
(CNN) – “His Cabinet when he’s finished – and he’s far from finished – will have diversity including women, including people of color,” Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett told CNN’s chief national correspondent John King and chief political analyst Gloria Borger from the White House shortly before Obama took the Oath of Office.
See? Valerie Jarrett’s leg isn’t the only female representation that we should expect to almost, barely, kind of see in the coming months. We’ll likely see all kinds of legs. Patience.
However, I do hope they’ll be more prominent in the next group photo. Maybe both legs will even be visible next time. And if the photographer is feeling particularly generous, perhaps a glimpse of an arm would be in order.
“One picture does not speak a thousand words.“
“He believes he makes his best decisions when he is surrounded by people who have different perspectives and give him their best ideas,” she said. “I spent a lot of time in the Oval Office and I’m in there with a great number of women who he listens to and whose council and advice he trusts greatly.“
So to all you critics out there, you don’t have a leg to stand on. (Bygones.)
There’s a “rule” that says taking our domestic disputes to an international level is a no-no. But that didn’t stop Team Willard, whose senior economic adviser, in an op-ed in a German newspaper, didn’t hesitate to criticize the president over his positions on the European economic crisis.
Austerity kills jobs, and by blocking the president’s jobs plan and stimulus ideas, so do Republicans.
By the way, if President Obama had done even half of what Romney has, we’d be hearing about it 24/7 on every “librul media” outlet there is.
[T]he Romney campaign is breaking unwritten rules by attacking the U.S. president in a foreign media forum.
… the Romney campaign knows Europe’s crises are hurting the American economy, but it’s nevertheless going to a European outlet to push for more austerity, which is already failing miserably on a continental level.
If Eurozone policymakers take the Romney campaign’s advice, they lose and we lose…
And if Americans take the Romney campaign’s advice and give him their vote, we all lose.
Yeah, we don’t expect much from Brown, but Booker really screwed the pooch. Via Mediaite whose politics we don’t alway agree with…
Yep, Cory does the Twitter, it was on fire this afternoon over his b.s. Not sure if this is going to do the trick. Via.
MMMM, tasty. Via.
