Rep. Steve Stockman, friend and admirer of Ted Nugent, and truly one of the ugliest emm-effers to "grace" our already ugly House of Reps, has been ordered to take down his Obama Failometer.
Yes, the disingenuous (read:  lying) illogical poster child for Obama Derangement Syndrome (listed in the DSM-4), actually had a cutesy meter posted in the hallway at the Cannon House Office Building, where he does his good works for his constituents and his god and country

The graph was designed to show the failure of President Obama in creating jobs (I thought the Job Creators were the rich private-sector folks?  Go figya!).  But the ugly truth is that this slime Stockman and his buddies voted down every attempt by President Obama to create jobs.  Stockman also has the gall to highlight the failure of President Obama to create jobs for Black and Hispanic folks, attempting to stir up resentment from minorities, toward the president.

No other commentary from me is necessary on this point.

I will leave you only with this:
From Aldus Shrugged:

'I don’t think I’m naïve, but I’ve never seen it like this.  They’ve gone right past the lies and dog whistles and they’re just…I just…I just don’t remember it ever being…Only thing I can compare it to is what I read about the reactions in the South to Lincoln being elected.’
‘I know some naïve people were saying Obama’s election would mark the end of racism in this country,’ she said, ‘but how wrong-headed can some people be?  I mean, I appreciate the optimism, but my god…’
‘It’s gotten worse since then,’ I said.
‘I agree.  Racists are going to be racist.  Why would they change?  It’s who they are.’  She tapped the back of her hand with an index finger.  ‘I’m black, and they’re racist.  We are who we are.  I can’t change what I am, though.  Can they?  If anything, a black president will only embolden them, make them want to fight harder, fight dirtier to take back their country!’
‘Take it back from whom?’  I asked.
‘Or take it back to what?’  She responded.
That is something I gave a lot of thought to lately.  I did my schtick.  That’s when I knew I felt right at home with her.  ‘I was thinking if the GOP keeps saying NO, keeps introducing legislation against minorities and women… their tent’s gonna keep shrinking.  By 2016, they’ll be like 1000 people grousing about Obama, in one of those white backyard canopy tents.  They could rent one from a party supply store.  Lots of companies do that sort of stuff.  Then, by 2020, they’ll be down to 12 white guys, commiserating about the 1950s, zipping up a camping tent.  Then, by 2024, it’ll be four white guys, the 1850s, in a teepee.’

Let me tell you, it empowered me to write Aldus Shrugged!  I can watch Fox News and just laugh now!
Please watch for my next political/corporate/skewering novel to be released sometime in 2013.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
