Is Obama closing GOP-leaning car dealers?


By: Mark Tapscott
Examiner Columnist

There appears to be a side to the Chrysler bankruptcy that has the look of an ugly partisanship not seen in this town since Tricky Dick Nixon was in the White House composing his enemies list and checking it twice every night while watching the evening TV newscast.

Bloggers on the Right side of the Blogosphere are up in arms over data suggesting that President Obama’s White House auto industry potentates are targeting for closure Chrysler dealers with records of contributing either to Republicans like John McCain or to other Democrats in the 2008 presidential primary.

The Star Spangled Banner, like you've never heard it


Taxpayers Suffer Memorable Weekend

From the MacIver Institute for Public Policy Blog:

So, how did the Joint Finance Committee do while you were enjoying the weekend?

Let's see. They raised taxes and fees. They increased spending in this budget a whole bunch of times. How can a state with the worst structural deficit in the nation increase spending in any area? They voted to increase spending in the next budget even more. They even voted to undo a spending cut they had previously agreed to adopt.

They promised they would protect the middle class - but they voted to raise tuition for middle class families while giving illegal aliens a tuition break. They voted to increase costs for local governments by tens of millions of dollars so that these governments will be forced to raise property taxes even more.

When they got around to "cutting spending" it was usually either a reduction in a previously proposed increase or it was a reduction in one area so they could pay for spending in another area.

While the Governor talked about the need to lay off state employees, the committee actually voted to give other state employees additional benefits! While private sector employees are losing benefits, the committee decided that some state employees should get more.

In the middle of a recession, when Wisconsin businesses are struggling to reduce their costs so they can remain competitive, the committee voted to increase those costs again and again. They increased the use of the prevailing wage laws on government projects and they helped some private sector employees who provide services to state and local governments get unionized. They voted to increase the insurance costs for private businesses more than once. The result will be more business closings, greater unemployment and higher property taxes.

All in all, this was the worst weekend Wisconsin's taxpayers have seen in a long time. Here is a blow by blow account by our reporter in the street, Joe Taxpayer.

In 2003, Gov. Jim Doyle said, "My mind will be open to every solution -- except one. We should not -- we must not -- and I will not -- raise taxes."

Government Motors- Leaner and Meaner

President Barack Obama did an interview with CSPAN about his hopes for a "leaner and meaner" GM and Chrysler.

President Barack Obama says he hopes both GM and Chrysler emerge from their restructuring as "leaner, meaner" companies that are more competitive.

Leaner and Meaner?

Well, that is sure happening in Kenosha, isn't it?

Thousands of jobs will be and have been affected by the closing of the Kenosha engine plant.

Hundreds of thousands of jobs across America have been or will be lost in the next year due to the Chrysler and GM.

Is this what you mean about "leaner" companies, Mr. President?

Things are awful lean around here, Mr. President. Try finding a good paying job in Kenosha right now.


Kenosha is currently dealing with the meaner side of the President right now. Kenosha is watching their good paying jobs be sent to Mexico where they will build the engine that was promised to Kenoshans. That is pretty mean, Mr. President.

Speaking of mean, wasn't it the President who promised for months and months he would create jobs? 3,4 and 5 millions jobs he promised. The UAW backed the President 100% spending millions of workers dues to getting President Obama elected.

These very same workers who coughed up millions are now paying a heavy price for Obama's "leaner and meaner" auto companies.

The Candy Man Can!

H/T- Conservatives 4 Palin

Now that is bipartisanship!

Who says President Obama cannot unite the Congress?

He sure did yesterday.

The US Senators from both sides of the ailse, united in opposition against the President Obama's closing of Gitmo.


In a bipartisan fashion, the Congress slapped down President Obama.

Sarah Palin on Michael Steele

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin praised Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele as "bold and courageous" late Tuesday while knocking President Barack Obama as "predictable as Alaska's winter snow."

In a statement criticizing the president over General Motors' plan to sell its healthy assets to the federal government following bankruptcy, the Republican governor singled out Steele as a counterbalance to the president.

"We have another voice in Washington, D.C. — a man who understands what Alaskans believe: less centralized government control, restrained budgets, more opportunity for development and fewer taxes," Palin said.

Democrats concede on Guantanamo Bay

In a clear setback for President Barack Obama, Senate Democrats moved Tuesday to both wipe out $80 million in new funding for the closing the Guantanamo detention facility and bar the administration from moving prisoners to U.S. soil until there is a more detailed plan provided to lawmakers.

Steele: Republican Party has "turned the corner"

School Choice -- Not for you

Few national images are more shameful than those of innocent, low-income kids milling through decrepit public schools, uncared for, unsafe and barely educated. In Washington, D.C., alone, 173 schools — 67% — fail to meet federal standards of learning.

So it was curious that when President Obama recently allowed 1,716 of Washington's neediest schoolchildren to keep, until graduation, the vouchers they use to escape their failed public schools for higher-quality private ones, he also closed the program to new applicants. All this occurred as the Education Department reported that voucher participants show superior skills in reading, safety and orderliness. The news was buried in an impenetrable study released without a news conference.

Why the ambivalence? Because teacher unions, fearing loss of jobs, have pushed most Democrats to oppose vouchers and other options that invite competition for public schools. Put another way, they oppose giving poor parents the same choice that the president himself — along with his chief of staff and some 35% of Democrats in Congress — have made in sending their children to private schools.

Democrats' Beer Tax Increase

Say it isn't so! Wisconsin Democrats want to increase the beer tax. At least the beer brewers are standing up for taxpayers in this state, since the Democrats aren't.

Read more about the proposed tax increase here.

While I'm on the topic of beer, if you enjoy sampling different beers, a GREAT festival in the area to attend for beer lovers is the Great Lakes Brew Fest in Racine.

The GOP's Health-Care Alternative

Four Republicans in Congress -- Sens. Tom Coburn (Oklahoma) and Richard Burr (North Carolina) and Reps. Paul Ryan (Wisconsin) and Devin Nunes (California) -- will today introduce a bill that moves away from federal centralization. Aptly called the Patients' Choice Act, it provides a path to universal coverage by redirecting current subsidies for health insurance to individuals. It also provides a new safety net that guarantees access to insurance for those with pre-existing conditions.

Lose your job? Get free Viagra.

I am not kidding. Really lose your job and your health insurance, Pfizer is giving away free Viagra.

From the K-News:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Pfizer Inc. is unveiling a new program that will let people who have lost their jobs and health insurance keep taking some widely prescribed Pfizer medications — for free, and for up to a year.

Pfizer will provide more than 70 prescription drugs — from Lipitor to Viagra — at no cost to unemployed, uninsured Americans.

People who lost jobs since Jan. 1 and have been on Pfizer drugs for three months or more are eligible.

The announcement comes amid massive job losses caused by the recession and should bring a Pfizer some goodwill, good publicity and brand loyalty.

The program, which starts today, was requested by a committee of employees concerned about newly uninsured patients struggling to buy their medicines.

See- told ya. Free Viagra. You can now keep yourself thoroughly entertained while you are laid off.

See, things are looking up. know what I mean.

Nancy Pelosi Version 4.0? or 5.0?

It is getting difficult to keep up with Nanny Pelosi's fibs on CIA tactics. So I figured I would start numbering them:

Version 1.0: Nanny Pelosi was horrified and spoke out against the evil Bush administration and their waterboarding tactics, that was until she was exposed by the Washington Post as having been briefed on the subject and she raised no objections.

Version 2.0: Okay- Nanny finally admits she was briefed but she had no idea that the tactics were actually being used, until one of the members of Congress, Porter Goss, who also was briefed, busted her.

Version 3.0: Okay, now Nanny states that one of her aides was briefed in 2003, her aide briefed her and she raised objections in a letter with Congresswoman Jane Harman.

Version 4.0: Congresswoman Jane Harman has never heard of Nancy Pelosi. (Okay, just kidding!) Nancy Pelosi's name is not mentioned or is she a signator of the letter written by Harman.

According to the Pelosi confidant, Sheehy told Pelosi about the briefing — and later informed Pelosi, the newly elected minority leader, that Harman was drafting a protest letter. Pelosi told Sheehy to tell Harman that she agreed with the letter, the Pelosi insider said. But she did not ask to be listed as a signatory on the letter, the source said, and there is no reference to her in it.

Version 5.0: Next up. We are currently waiting for version 5.0. Hang tight.

Civil Disobedience

What a great idea! Order your stamp today! (I just did.)

H/T: Where's the Change

3,000,000 Jobs?

Obama promised his "stimulus plan" was going to save or create 3,000,000 jobs.


Not the Change Kenosha was Hoping for

From Congressman Sensenbrenner

(emphasis added)

Washington, May 11 -

The “restructuring” of jobs at the Chrysler Kenosha Engine Plant is a prime and realistic example of why I voted against the bailout funding, the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) and the other mass amounts of spending Democrats have done over the last few months in the name of “economic recovery.”

Since the spend-a-thon started, I’ve held many Town Hall Meetings. At each of these meetings I hear how the people of Wisconsin are fed-up with their hard-earned taxpayer dollars being spent on subsidizing failing corporations. In my opinion, no corporation is too big to fail.

But now, the President has added insult to injury. Despite many vocal objections, the Obama Administration approved the restructuring plan with Chrysler’s bankruptcy filing on April 30, 2009. What this means is that the 800 employees of Chrysler’s Kenosha Engine Plant will face “restructuring” (read: lose their jobs), AND they, along with their fellow Wisconsinites will be paying for their jobs to be relocated to a facility in Mexico.

Yes, you read that correctly. Chrysler is asking for an additional $8 billion from the government, on top of the $4 billion they’ve already received, to help implement their plan in Mexico, despite the proper resources already existing at the Kenosha Engine Plant.

Now, outsourcing jobs in a terrible economic market is really bad governing; but then having those workers help pay for their jobs to be outsourced through taxpayer bailout funds is a slap in the face and absolutely appalling. This is not the economic recovery Wisconsinites hoped for and expected.

Last Thursday, I sent a strongly worded letter to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner asking him to deny future bailout funds to Chrysler if it goes forward with outsourcing American jobs to Mexico. I know others in the Wisconsin delegation continue to take similar actions with the Administration to bring about a positive resolution for the people of Wisconsin. Under no circumstances, should we be rewarding these types of action with more money. Let’s hope the Administration reaches that conclusion as well, before it’s too late.

I guess when the President says that it’s time for change – he should really talk to those 800 employees who are about to experience some real life change.

Amazingly the budget deficit increases and we have not spent a penny of it yet

Amazingly the budget deficit increases and we have not spent a penny of it yet. I know this is an alarming development especially since we have been handed the promise of hope and change. So far, the dream of hope and change is only taking us further into debt.

With the economy performing worse than hoped, revised White House figures point to deepening budget deficits, with the government borrowing 50 cents for every dollar it spends this year.

The deficit for the current budget year will rise by $89 billion to above $1.8 trillion _ about four times the record set just last year. The unprecedented red ink flows from the deep recession, the Wall St. bailout, the cost of President Barack Obama's economic stimulus bill, as well as a structural imbalance between what the government spends and what it takes in.

As the economy performs worse than expected, the deficit for the 2010 budget year beginning in October will worsen by $87 billion to $1.3 trillion, the White House says. The deterioration reflects lower tax revenues and higher costs for bank failures, unemployment benefits and food stamps.

For the current year, the government would borrow almost half the money it takes to run the government under the administration's plan. In one of the few positive signs, the actual 2009 deficit is likely to be $250 billion less than predicted because Congress is unlikely to provide another $250 billion in financial bailout money.

The developments come as the White House completes the official release of its $3.6 trillion budget for 2010, adding detail to some of its tax proposals and ideas for producing health care savings. The White House budget is a recommendation to Congress that represents Obama's fiscal and policy vision for the next decade.

It is seriously difficult to keep up with the amount of money we are spending or have committed to spending these days. Even the simplist thing, such as the bottom line for the 2010 bugdet, is difficult to track.

Here Obama's budget was $3.4 trillion.

Here Obama's budget was $3.5 trillion.

Today we are being told $3.6 trillion

As everyone can clearly see, we seem to have a hard time keeping track of $200 billion.

No wonder the deficit is growning even though we have not started spending into the 2010 budget yet.

I found this on Governor Palin's Twitter Page.

Before I was a Mom

"Before I was a mom, I made and ate hot meals, wore unstained clothes and had quiet conversations on the phone.

Before I was a mom, I never worried about how late I went to bed because I could sleep in as long as I wanted.

Before I was a mom, I washed my face and brushed my teeth everyday.

Before I was a mom, I enjoyed a leisurely cup of coffee while reading the
morning newspaper on a Saturday morning.

Before I was a mom, I slept the whole night through.

Before I was a mom, my house was clean everyday and I didn't worry about whether or not my plants were poisonous.

Before I was a mom, I had never been puked on, pooped on, peed on, chewed on or pinched by little fingers.

Before I was a mom, I had complete control of my mind, thoughts and body.

Before I was a mom, I never held down a screaming child while doctors and nurses did tests or gave shots. I never felt my heart break into a million pieces because I couldn't stop the hurt.

Before I was a mom, I never looked into teary eyes and cried.

Before I was a mom, I never got gloriously happy over a toothless grin.

Before I was a mom, I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put it down. I never was up in the wee hours of the night just watching a baby while it slept. I never knew that something so small couldn't effect my life so tremendously.

Before I was a mom, I never knew I could love someone so unconditionally and completely.

Before I was a mom, I never knew how satisfying it is to feed a hungry
child. I never knew how fulfilling it is to soothe a baby's cries.

Before I was a mom, I loved my mom, but didn't understand her.

Before I was a mom, I never knew the warmth, the joy, the heartache, the
wonderment, or the fulfillment of being a mom.

Before I was a mom, I never knew I would love being a mom."

Where is President Obama? Kenosha wants to know.

After having a few people lash out at me for putting part of the blame on President Obama for losing jobs in Kenosha via Chrysler, there is finally some movement towards asking the same questions that Kenoshans have been asking for days now...

Where is President Obama when Kenosha needs him?

As I pointed out the other day, not only is Chrysler taking a beating, but so is the President. After all, he is allowing American jobs to go to Mexico.

Finally, Obama's role in this is getting some real attention.

As pointed out in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about a half hour ago:

Feingold suggested Kenosha's fate is at odds with Obama's rhetoric about ending government incentives to move jobs abroad.

Obama, he said, has emphasized "not using the tax code to outsource jobs. This whole idea of helping these companies had to do with keeping jobs in the United States."

President Obama's political rhetoric does not match his actions.

The Obama administration knew in February that Chrysler planned on closing the US factories and that US autoworker jobs would be sent to Mexico. The administration did not lift one finger or make any effort to save American jobs.

The Kenosha's current and retired auto workers may have already outlived their usefulness to President Obama, because he no longer needs their campaign donations, but they have not outlived their usefulness to those of us that love the citizens of the city of Kenosha.

Kenosha needs these jobs!

Thursday, May 07, 2009


The Obama Adminstration knew of the Kenosha Engine plant closing in February

Everyone I have spoken with about the Chrysler plant closing in Kenosha is angry. Perhaps not as angry as they were in 1989 when this last happened, but they are still furious.

Kenosha was sold out by the Obama Administration working in concert with Chrysler. According to many of those involved, including Chrysler, all now agree that the Obama administration was well aware that the Kenosha Chrysler plant was closing and jobs would be increased in Mexico.

In a statement, the company said it envisioned the closings in February in a viability plan submitted to the Obama administration's auto industry task force.

It is not just Republican Congressman Paul Ryan making this assertion, but so is Governor Doyle and Chrysler.

Congressman Paul Ryan states:

"They gave us assurances that (a Kenosha shutdown) was not the case - both the administration and the company," Ryan said.

If the plant closings were envisioned as part of the February viability plan, Ryan added, "Then they should have told us on Wednesday and Thursday that this wasn't happening. If they knew the truth, they should have told us the truth. It's just that simple."

The timeline so far seems to be this:

Chrysler submitted a plan on restructuring as required by President Obama back in February. At that time that plans were already in the works to close the Kenosha engine plant.

Wednesday, April 29th in the evening, Congressman Paul Ryan spoke with the Obama administration and Chrysler execs, he was reassured that the Kenosha Chyrsler plant was not going to close, less than 36 hours later, Congressman Ryan was informed that this was not really the case.

Thursday, April 30, Governor Jim Doyle was also assured that the Kenosha Engine Plant was fine. 24 hours later, he received the same call that Congressman Ryan received. Uh-oh, bad news.

It was not until the official bankruptcy paperwork was filed in court that the Congressman, the Governor, the UAW, the Kenosha workers and every elected official in Kenosha found out about this.

Republicans and Democrats, union and non-union workers, liberals and conservatives, our Democrat governor and our Republican congressman all agree that this notification was a despicable way to inform the city of Kenosha that the engine plant was closing.

I disagree with many things the Democrats do, but on this issue, everyone in Kenosha stands united. We needed those jobs and this will devastate Kenosha for a period of time.

Sure we will recover, but we will be smarter as we move forward.

We expected Chrysler to lie to us, they have done it before, but our new President and his staff should be ashamed of themselves. President Obama promised hope and change, this is not the person America elected.

After all the beatings that President Bush took from the unions over jobs going overseas, President Obama has proven himself to be exactly like President Bush by sending American jobs in Kenosha to Mexico.

President Obama will pander to whomever at whatever moment he chooses. With this stunt, clearly the American workers are not at the top of his list.

We have been told that the automakers would be better off if they just went into bankruptcy, they would be able come back bigger and stronger than ever before. Clearly Kenosha will not be part of the bigger and stronger auto industry. Like every other American our TARP tax dollars will be used to benefit the Mexican job market.

We got screwed.

I would like to find out exactly who knew what and when did they know it? Was Larry Summers involved in this? Who handled this for the Obama administration?

No take backs!

I just want to go ahead and declare "no take backs" or "this door is closed" or "hell, no!".

This message is intended for Senator Arlen Specter. After giving the GOP the lovely gift of departing the party, there are absolutely no take backs of this gift.

This comes in response to all of the media attention you were richly rewarded with after leaving the GOP. President Obama promised his full support and promised to campaign for you. Harry Reid promised you would keep your seniority in the committees, even hinting at chairmanships.

Apparently the Democrats in the Senate are not actually buying this garbage. From WaPo

The Senate dealt a blow tonight to Sen. Arlen Specter's hold on seniority in several key committees, a week after the Pennsylvanian's party switch placed Democrats on the precipice of a 60-seat majority.

In a unanimous voice vote, the Senate approved a resolution that added Specter to the Democratic side of the dais on the five committees on which he serves, an expected move that gives Democrats larger margins on key panels such as Judiciary and Appropriations.

But Democrats placed Specter in one of the two most junior slots on each of the five committees for the remainder of this Congress, which goes through December 2010. Democrats have suggested that they will consider revisiting Specter's seniority claim at the committee level only after the midterm elections next year.

This was not a sideways move as Specter expected to happen. Instead, Specter was demoted to rookie status.

So on behalf of conservatives elsewhere, I officially declare "no take backs". We do not want you back.

Try the Green Party- maybe they will have you.

Another day, Another $94.2 Billion

House Democrats are pushing for another $94.2 billion in excess spending.

Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives will seek passage in coming weeks of $94.2 billion in emergency money for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and other programs, including $2 billion more to prepare for an influenza pandemic.

House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, outlining the legislation for reporters, also said the legislation would include $2.2 billion to fund some C-17 airplanes for the Pentagon. But it will not address future purchases of a refueling tanker airplane sought by the Air Force.

Obey said $80 million to close the U.S. prison in Guantanamo, Cuba, would not be included in the bill because no details were provided by the administration on how that move would be carried out.

Last month, President Barack Obama asked Congress to give him $83.4 billion more to pay for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is hoping to use the money to begin phasing out combat operations in Iraq while building up U.S. forces in Afghanistan where al Qaeda and Taliban fighters are gaining strength.

I support Obama's decision for more money in Iraq and Afganistan. It is time to get the job finished. So I do not have a problem with Obama's request. I am a little curious as to why this is considered emergency funding instead of being included in the rest of the budget. This is another topic for another time.

What I do find odd is that President Obama only requested $83.4 billion and yet, Nanny Pelosi and her fellow Democrats are approving appoximately a $94.2 in emergency funds.

Where is that extra $10 billion going?

RPW Convention- Chairman Michael Steele

I had the pleasure of meeting RNC Chairman Michael Steele ever so briefly. We chatted briefly about RPW Chairman Reince Priebus.

After watching Chairman Steele's speech, I am convinced more than ever that he is the right man for the job.

If you hang around politics enough, you hear hundreds of "rah! rah! rah! aren't republicans great speeches". You really get tired of hearing them.

We did not hear that from Chairman Steele this weekend.

Steele readily acknowledges that there is a problem and has renewed his commitment for fight for conservative principles.

Steele also acknowledges that he has infuriated many of the GOP establishment.


The reason the grassroots Republicans are so high on Chairman Steele is that we know that Steele will not cave to the old ways of doing business.

As you can clearly see from their whining, the old guard in the RNC are trying desperately hard to hang onto their power:

By contrast, Steele’s team tends to be made up of more recently elected
members of the committee, who don’t necessarily approach their roles with
similar reverence for RNC custom.

“I think that Priebus is new and most of the people that were co-authors of
the resolution have been around for awhile,” another RNC member said. “A lot of
the supporters of Chairman Steele are people who haven’t been on the committee
for a very long period of time.”

To the idiotic pathetic old guard of the RNC:

You failed Americans from coast to coast. You gambled with our future in order to hang on to your power. You destroyed our principles and sold out to the Democrat Party. The grassroots have had it with the Republican elitists. The good ole boys club in the RNC have lost their backbone to stand on their principles.

If the grassroots are left to decide between Michael Steele and the good ole boys who sacrificed out principles for their own personal power, the grassroots will choose Michael Steele.

I heard someone say this weekend(I am not sure who), that all of the old guard continues to talk about the "big tent" party. The problem comes in when even a tent needs solid posts to stand. Clearly the wishy washy Republicans that have run the RNC for the last 20 years are wishy washy with no principles.

Time to get rid of these guys that are protecting the status quo.
