The CLOWN'S back in town, after sitting on his butt and the golf course for two week, Obama comes back to demand the networks for go a debate scheduled months ago to magnify his incompetence and arrogance to give a speech he promised a year ago again after providing himself and family with another luxury vacation at the cost of millions to the american people of whom 18% are out of work and trying to keep food on the table. Just two words describe Obama, NO CLASS.

I remember in the 70's when Carter deregulated gas. Would gas prices be better now if gas was not deregulated? Just a question to think about.

From the article:

The government contends that the acquisition of the No. 4 wireless carrier in the country by No. 2 AT&T would reduce competition and that would lead to price increases."

Wait. What?? Since when does this Obama run government care about open market competition and lower prices for consumers?

Democrats Distancing Themselves From Obama

MARK WILSON/GETTY IMAGES
Rep. Pete DeFazio, D-Ore., introduced then-presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama at a campaign event in Oregon in 2008. Now he seems to be recalculating how close is too close to be to an unpopular President Obama.
It’s been a tough summer for swing-district Democrats seeking reelection in 2012 with a president at the top of the ticket whose approval ratings are in the weeds.
As these members begin to focus on their reelection bids after Labor Day, they are increasingly calculating how close is too close to an unpopular President Obama.

Take Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., who represents a district that nearly went for Republican George W. Bush in 2004. In a recent local TV interview, DeFazio said of Obama that the word “fight” isn’t “in his vocabulary”-- and he then repeated the criticism to constituents at a town hall. Or Rep. Bill Owens, D-N.Y., who won a Republican-friendly district in a special election last year and pointedly declined to endorse the sitting president last week.

The president’s dismal poll ratings, should they continue into next year, could sink Democratic hopes for reclaiming ground in the House and retaining control of the Senate -- especially in battleground states and swing districts.
“If he is where he is now, it’s not going to work for Democrats,” said Rep. Dan Boren, D-Okla., who opted earlier this year not to seek reelection in his competitive district.
