The 'Obamaphone Lady'
Wall Street Jounal, by James Taranto

Original Article

Posted By:BamaMan, 10/1/2012 4:19:03 PM

This columnist both laughed and cringed at the "Obamaphone Lady" video that last week got wide play on YouTube, with boosts from Matt Drudge and Rush Limbaugh. It's one of a series of interviews someone using the handle RealFreedom1776 shot outside a Mitt Romney appearance in Bedford, Ohio, a Cleveland suburb. The Service Employees International Union was staging a protest against the Romney rally. The Obamaphone Lady, who as far as we know hasn't been otherwise identified, is a middle-aged black woman with a loud, gravelly voice.

Phones for votes. Thanks Mr. Pimp President for redistributing my money. Keep it up and I'll be on food stamps and unemployment soon.

I might have to give up my Romneyphone-- yes I worked fro the money that paid for it!

I suspect the disgust the public has for this woman and the Obamaphone policy is wide and deep, but mostly silent. May their voices be heard on Nov. 6th.

Mr. Tarantino points out the program began under Bush but what he fails to mention that it total a billion phones plus..all expanded under obama. So nice try slick. Also he brought up the documentary done by Piglosi's daughter pointing out the racist comments made by John McCain supporters. He forgets that several of those (more than half) were later vetted and found to be paid by the DNC party. Oops. Bet if some vetting was done on the PhoneLady and some intense digging into her background you would find, she is getting paid by the SEIU to protest, she is making money on the side well above the limit for receiving benefits.

FTA: she neglects to mention that the 1988 Horton ad was made by a political action committee, not the Bush campaign itself.

Even that isn't completely true. The first use of Willie Horton's release was by Al Gore against Mike Dukakis in the primaries.

I was very disappointed this weekend, when a blog I read said it was racist of Rush to play this, and independent voters like her found it disturbing, and linked to Romney. This person is supposedly a learned person, a law prof. Yet I don't recall this blogger bemoaning MSNBC's blatant near constant race baiting. And another thing, I'm sorry, but how is it not racism that 95% of blacks will vote for this man? Near 25% unemployment, record levels of food stamp use, and poverty.

The bottom line is, those who are the "makers" are darned sick of the "takers". Working hard to provide free phones and so much more free stuff for those who do not work, and who do not want to work (ever). Not fair, and the Left is all about fair.

The question then arises ???
Did SEIU just pick her up from the ghetto, pay her to picket, and then bus her to the event ?

OR, is she a working member of SEIU, and has a steady job ??

If she is the latter, than she may have given FALSE pretenses to receive her "Obama" phone !!!

Is she a "Professional Picket" ??? And not reporting that income to IRS ?

Unfortunately, the toothless woman represents many obama supporters.
And as to the cell phones, they are called obamaphones by blacks. They are convinced that barack is responsible for them having the phones.
The program was initially intended to provide poor people with landlines so they could call 911. Cell phones were not in common use back then. But the program has been distorted and expanded by obama, without question. Only one phone per family is allowed, but that requirement is routinely ignord.
The cell companies have no incentive to check on eligibility.

More proof that the Obamboozler has zero intentions of doing anything but spend this country into the ground. He is letting the air out of the financial tires of our country to make it weaker any way he can and in the process making more and more people dependent on the government for everything. It suits his political ambitions to make the government the central focus of everyone's needs.

Reading the New Republic piece by Tom Donnelly of the Constitutional Accountability Center (a self-described organization of "constitutional progressives"), you´d think you´d gone back in time two years. "It´s the blockbuster case of the term," Donnelly says, referring to a dispute over ObamaCare now before the Supreme Court. "It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts´s leadership. . . . The stakes for his reputation--and that of his Court--couldn´t be higher." "Chief Justice Roberts has often spoken about how important it is for the justices to maintain the legitimacy of the Court--by limiting divisive rulings, moving the law

WASHINGTON — Ronald Reagan used to say the nine most terrifying words in the English language were: "I´m from the government and I´m here to help." Barack Obama is offering Americans his own twist on that message: He´s from the government and he needs your help. Frustrated by the inability of Congress and the White House to reach agreement on much of anything, the president is increasingly relying on his powers of persuasion to cajole people and organizations to help tackle some of the country´s big problems —voluntarily. Lots of presidents promote volunteerism, of course. This is something different. The president this year

With just 250 shopping days until Election Day, a New York Times/CBS News has good news for Republicans. Asked how they plan to vote for the House, "42 percent say they will back Republicans in November, and 39 percent indicate that they will back Democrats." Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Megan Thee-Brenan note that´s "a difference within the poll´s margin of sampling error." More pertinent, however, is that this "generic ballot" question tends to overstate Democratic support. In October 2010, just before the Republicans picked up 63 seats and a majority, the Democrats had a one-point edge, 43% to 42%, in

Whether or not legalizing marijuana is a good idea, as a purely descriptive matter it is an idea whose time has come. In 1996 California voters approved Proposition 215, a ballot measure immunizing from prosecution those who use marijuana under a physician´s recommendation. A 2003 state law, drolly titled Senate Bill 420, established a regulatory regime designed to "facilitate the prompt identification of qualified patients . . . in order to avoid unnecessary arrest"--i.e., to make medical marijuana easier to obtain. Since 1996, 19 more states and the District of Columbia have enacted laws to permit medical marijuana, according to ProCon.org.

Ezra Klein is back in line. The Journolist founder, who now runs Wonkblog for the Washington Post, took some flak from other left-liberal journalists last year when he acknowledged that the ObamaCare exchanges had serious technical flaws. But now, as we move into Phase 3 of the ObamaCare failure--the unraveling of its economic assumptions--Klein and his wonkblogger staff are full denial. One result has been an entertaining and informative set of rebuttals from the heterodox liberal blogger Mickey Kaus. It began with a Dec. 17 post by Wonkblog´s Sarah Kliff with the less-reassuring-than-intended title "Why Obamacare Won´t Spiral Into Fiery, Actuarial

"Expect the unexpected" has been good advice for anyone following American economic news since 2009. That news has usually been bad, and almost always "unexpectedly" so. The surprise is a product of ideological bias: With a kindred spirit in the White House, liberal reporters expect (or at least hope for) good things to happen. A cynical observer might suggest that there is an element of deliberate spin involved, with reporters hoping to keep readers´ expectations afloat until next month´s report. This Reuters dispatch applies the practice to a new subject: Health insurer Humana Inc said on Thursday that it projected its enrollment

"He has a crush on a girl at school, who likes him back," reports Colorado Springs´ KRDO-TV. "It may sound innocent enough," the station intones. But in Barack Obama´s America, even a small boy can become a sexual suspect. "It was during class yeah," Hunter tells the station. "We were doing reading group and I leaned over and kissed her on the hand. That´s what happened." His mother continues explaining: "[The girl] was fine with it, they are ´boyfriend and

Who Sabotaged ObamaCare?

One of the excuses for the technical incompetence of ObamaCare is that the president and his team were the victims of "sabotage" by congressional Republicans. Todd Purdum, a leftist longtime New York Times reporter, put forward this claim in a Politico op-ed last week, and yesterday the Washington Post´s Jonathan Capehart, perhaps Obama´s most effusive male admirer, echoed it, citing a deeply reported story by his Post colleagues Amy Goldstein and Juliet Eilperin. The idea that Republicans have "sabotaged" ObamaCare is ludicrous on its face. Sabotage entails destroying or damaging something by subverting it--by stealthily undermining it from within.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms.
