You Say Off-shor-ed/I Say Out-sourc-ed/ Let's Call Your Campaign Off!


This week, etymologists and scrabble players but few others were entranced by candidate Mitt Romney’s efforts to draw a distinction between jobs he offshored while at Bain Capital versus jobs he outsourced while at Bain Capital. The biggest gaffe since President Obama declared the private sector “in good shape.” These guys DO talk for a living. and talk and talk.

OBAMA 2012 Proposes Campaign Donations In Lieu of Wedding Gifts! Change We Can Live Without!


For a campaign known for innovation and a candidate known for popularity with women, the OBAMA 2012 Campaign sounded an odd note this week by proposing as one fundraising idea, that brides and grooms-to-be suggest that wedding guests offer campaign contributions in lieu of gifts. What a great way to start wedded bliss! Our first fight!

We will gladly publish reactions of brides and grooms in this space – if printable!

We can only assume this idea was suggested by Divorce Lawyers for Obama/Biden. Or Mitt Romney.

President To Congress: Stop Acting French! Do Something!

Breaking News – President Barack Obama is delivering a statement on the economy, including the European crisis, at 10:15 a.m. ET.

According to the White House, Obama will call on Congress to “pass the bipartisan, paid-for ideas that the President proposed last year to put construction workers back to work upgrading our roads and bridges, teachers back in the classroom educating our kids and police and firefighters back on the job keeping our communities safe.”

We Fix It…

The Good News: Today Americans are paying for More Home Building, More Bridge and Transportation Repair, and More Jobs Than Ever!

The Bad News: It’s in Iraq & Afghanistan.

DC Public School's Own – Warren Buffett!

While his dad served in Congress (4 terms) Warren attended Deal Junior High (now, Deal Middle School) and graduated from Wilson High in DC – Class of ’47. Yearbook: “Likes Math, Future stock broker.” Who knew?

Buffett was back at Deal Junior High today with a CNBC crew reliving old memories and sheepishly asking if they still had his conduct records which by his account would show him to be a baaad boy! Imagine! A late bloomer! There’s hope for us all!

More later. See our olde Fabulous Baker Boyz song dedicated to Warren and Jimmy (Wasted Away in W’s Hooverville).
