REAL CLEAR POLITICS


December 29, 2010
No Clintonian Comeback for Obama
By Tony Blankley

Don't believe all the Washington talk that President Obama had a great lame duck session and goes into the new year and the new 112th congress with the whip hand. Utter nonsense.

Let's review the lame duck session as it happened -- not as it has been instantly revised by the ever-obliging Washington press corps.
In the first week or so, the president capitulated to Ronald Reagan's supply side theory that tax cuts expand the economy, and tax increases contract it. The central policy was to not let expire the Bush tax cuts, not only because it would be tough on middle-class taxpayers, but also, the White House argued,because keeping tax rates down would be good for the economy.

Even the great triangulator, Bill Clinton, never conceded this point. In 1993, he raised taxes by about $400 billion to manage the deficit. And, while the economy slowed down briefly to a mere 1.9 percent GDP growth, the new dot-com technology business brought us the great economic expansion of the later 1990s -- so Clinton never conceded to supply side theory.

And don't think Obama merely took a week of embarrassment for that concession in December. We economic conservatives are still cheerfully reminding the public half a century later that President John Kennedy endorsed supply side marginal tax cuts. You can bet that Republicans will be reminding the public decades from now that "even Barack Obama" agreed to supply side tax-cut theory "way back in 2010."

This is a historical intellectual capitulation of the first order by the Democratic Party president.

After that political defeat, the president had to endure another weak week when his party leaders in the Senate tried to jam through a trillion-dollar spending bill with more than 6,000 earmarks. Republican leader Sen. Mitch McConnell held firm, tea partiers across the country began to roar and the president's allies quickly capitulated, with the White House agreeing to a short-term extension of spending -- importantly leaving most of the 2011 spending in the hands of the incoming 112th Congress, not the infamous spendthrift 111th.

This was a second defeat for the president and his party -- which, please remember, continued to hold its huge majorities in both the House and the Senate.

The final week of the lame duck is the thin reed on which the president's alleged lame duck success is constructed. He lost on his goal of passing the Dream Act -- which was designed to appeal to Hispanic votes. He passed -- on a bipartisan basis -- "don't ask, don't tell" and the confirmation of the Start Treaty.

The DADT passage was a legislative victory. But if -- as most of our non-politicized senior military officers and about 60 percent of our combat troop rank and file believe -- this new policy will reduce recruitment at a time when combat troop shortages are already hampering field success, there may be a long-term price for this short-term legislative success.

If, on the other hand, no serious problems emerge, I don't believe the DADT passage gives the president any special political advantage in the out years.

Finally, the Start Treaty was confirmed in the Senate with most Democratic senators and a large handful of Republicans. This is hardly a partisan triumph. Almost the entire Republican foreign policy establishment supported it. Even the Republican Senators who opposed its December passage were only holding out for some minor amendments on nuclear modernization and missile defense authorization.

They got a promise from the president of $80 billion for nuclear modernization -- which six months ago would have been called a GOP triumph -- and still is.

And they got a letter from the White House that the treaty does not conflict with our right to develop missile defense -- another triumph for the GOP from a White House that has shown little enthusiasm for our defensive technologies.

Only because the Republican Senate leaders unshrewdly did not take yes for an answer -- and continued to oppose Start -- did the president get the appearance of a victory.

In fact, despite the president believing it is historically consequential, the confirmation of the Start Treaty is a minor foreign policy matter today (30 years ago, during the Cold War, it would have been a central accomplishment). The real nuclear threats today are from Iran and North Korea -- on both fronts of which President Obama is an utter failure, as was his predecessor President George W. Bush.

Despite the sobriquet "The Comeback Kid" given to Obama by the brilliant, normally politically spot-on conservative gentleman and columnist Charles Krauthammer, Obama has not come back.

Clinton gave himself that compliment after he came in second in the New Hampshire Democratic Party presidential primary just days after he and Hillary had appeared on "60 Minutes" to admit -- in the face of the Gennifer Flowers illicit sex scandal -- that their marriage had been rocky, but would survive (which it famously has). In Clinton's case, he had come back politically.

In Obama's case, he enters 2011 facing more than 80 new Republican congressmen and senators, most of whom would make Barry Goldwater look soft on limited government and deficit spending.

On those central issues of 2011, the president either capitulates or storms in defiance and gridlock. He has not come back from political crisis; he has only inflamed his formidable opposition across the country.

He has a challenger in the way of a commie pinko homo named alan greyson that will likely challenge the nappy-headed one. Looks like Huckabee is the front runner right now for the Pubs. I'm hoping Palin stays out of it. she is a good cheerleader, but that is about as far as it goes.

Don't believe they will ever replace Nobamadingalingdoing on the Dem ticket for 2012. I have been wrong before but I just don't see it! I don't see him getting elected again either but hell I didn't see him getting elected in the very beginning. Where is this Greyson coming from? Never heard of him and that does not mean anything other than I just don't know anything about him!

WSJ Blogs
Washington Wire
Political Insight and Analysis From The Wall Street Journal's Capital Bureau Rep. Grayson Apologizes, But Not to RepublicansGOP Sees Silver Lining in Grayson’s Remarks: Fodder for a 2010 Challenge October 1, 2009, 11:53 AM ET.Who Is Alan Grayson, Anyway?.Article Naftali Bendavid and Louise Radnofsky report on Congress.

Rep. Alan Grayson has been making waves since he came to Congress in January, just nine short months ago – a tack opposite to most freshmen who tend to keep their heads down.

The biggest came this week when the Florida Democrat declared on the House floor, that the Republicans’ health-care plan amounted to “Don’t get sick,” and “If you do get sick, die quickly.”

That comment made Grayson an object of vilification and admiration. That was enhanced Wednesday when he apologized. Sort of. He said he wanted to apologize “to the dead and their families that we haven’t voted sooner to end this holocaust in America.”

Grayson describes himself as having been a sick child who grew up “in the tenements” in the Bronx. He attended Harvard Law School, and was the first president of IDT Corp., a telecommunications company, before returning to the practice of law. Recently he has specialized in whistleblower cases targeting companies that allegedly profited from the war in Iraq. He worked from a home office in pink Orlando mansion, driving an aging Cadillac with anti-administration bumper stickers such as “Bush Lied, People Died.”

Along the way, he has become wealthy. Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper, ranked him 12th among all members of Congress based on financial disclosure forms, with a minimum net worth of $31.12 million. Apparently a fan of the Sarah Palin school of baby-naming; Grayson and his wife are parents of Skye, Star, Sage, Storm and Stone.

Republicans say it was an aberration that Grayson knocked off four-term GOP incumbent Ric Keller with 52% of the vote in his suburban Orlando district. Barack Obama’s coattails pushed him over the top, they say, and Keller had incurred public wrath by violating a term-limits pledge.

Shortly after his election, the 51-year-old responded to radio host Rush Limbaugh’s remark that he hoped President Obama would fail by calling Limbaugh a “has-been hypocrite loser,” adding for good measure that “Limbaugh actually was more lucid when he was a drug addict.” Mocking Republicans who apologized after criticizing Limbaugh, Grayson issued an “apology” of his own: “I’m sorry that Limbaugh is one sorry excuse for a human being.”

Grayson has used his perch on the House Financial Services Committee to skewer Federal Reserve officials, pressing them on how their money is being spent and forming an unlikely alliance with Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul to demand an audit of the Fed. Some of his interrogations have become YouTube favorites. Check them out here, here, and here.

Fashioning a colorful, populist persona, Grayson was among those pushing hard to restrict bonuses of companies that take bailout money. He’s become a vocal member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. He raised eyebrows by hiring Matt Stoller, a former political consultant and firebrand liberal blogger, as his senior policy adviser.

In February, Grayson issued a statement demanding that Bernard Madoff go to jail, rather than staying in his penthouse while awaiting trail, and he quoted Bob Dylan, that noted legal analyst, to make his point. “As Bob Dylan once sang, Madoff is ‘free to drink martini, and watch the sun rise,’ while his victims are ‘innocent men in a living hell,’ ” Grayson said.

Now Grayson is the latest focus of the impassioned, often-ugly national debate over health care. Republicans are comparing him to Rep. Joe Wilson (R., S.C.), who yelled, “You lie!” during Obama’s address to a joint session of Congress. Democrats say the two incidents are entirely different.

After Grayson’s comments on the House floor, Rep. Jimmy Duncan (R., Tenn.) said, “That is about the most mean-spirited partisan statement that I’ve ever heard made on this floor.” Still, Republicans have repeatedly accused Democrats of planning “death panels” as part of their health overhaul. Rep. Virginia Foxx (R., N.C.) on the House floor on July 28, suggested that that the Democrats’ plan would “put seniors in the position of being put to death by their government.”

Grayson seems to be relishing the moment; at the least, he is not backing away. In an interview Wednesday with CBS News, Grayson said the response to his comments has been “overwhelmingly positive.” He added, “People are calling us from all over the country to congratulate us for telling the truth. People are happy to see a Democrat with guts.”

WOW! Talk about gutsy! If nothing else he has a mouth and is not afraid to spout off! Whether he is right or not does not seem to matter much to him! We could do worse, just how I am not sure but we could do a whole lot better than this nut! Don't know whether people would warm up to him so quickly after Nobamadingalingadingdong!!

While they all fiddle around accusing each other of lacking a bi-partisan bone in their bodies, this is what's happening to all of us.
