Obama insults his base with his ‘second term’ wish list.

He’ll get away with it, of course.

(H/T: Hot Air Headlines) Apparently the President wants to spend his extremely hypothetical second term doing the following:

  • Repealing DOMA;
  • Passing another DREAM Act;
  • ‘Reforming’ Wall Street; and
  • ‘Investing’ in schools.

Now, I’m not going to fall into the trap of getting sidelined discussing the merits of any or all of those proposals*.  Instead, I’m going to ask: just how stupid does President Obama think Democrats are, anyway?  From 2009 to 2011 the Democratic Party had between 256 to 258 votes in the House, and 57 to 60 in the Senate.  If the President was such a blithering incompetent leader that he couldn’t pass wish-list legislation then, in what alternate universe could anyone legitimately expect him to pass a similar list in any hypothetical future administration? – Because the Democrats aren’t going to enjoy that kind of lopsided majorities in Congress again any time soon.  In fact, starting next January they’re probably not going to enjoy a majority in Congress at all.

#rsrh …or, I could dip into the Strategic Bacon Reserve.

It is downright amazing how the universe improves once you are outside several pieces of bacon.

Speaking of a pork product currently being fried to a crisp in its own grease, Gallup’s reporting a 40% approval rating for President Obama.  It would seem that Peggy Noonan’s right*: nobody particularly loves the guy these days.

Mark Halperin calls Obama a dick on TV.

I was going to say ‘national TV,’ except that it was just MSNBC.

Bad Mark Halperin! BAD! No biscuit!

PS: Personally, I would have gone with ‘putz.’
