Obama freeloads on Buehrle's Perfect Game bandwagon


   Any port in a storm

Obama freeloads on Buehrle's Perfect Game bandwagon - six months in and Obama’s bad week gets worse – a lot worse.

Just a couple of days after NBC ran a piece on the controversy over Obama’s missing birth certificate, the Associated Press has now written on this subject as well. After spending millions, of leftover campaign dollars, to derail a multitude of legal challenges, the issue of Obama’s constitutional legitimacy, to serve as president, is gaining momentum.

Two days after Obama said that the Cambridge Police “acted stupidly”, area police unions voiced their support for Sgt. James Crowley and called for an apology from Obama. The Union spokesman said that they deeply resent Obama’s racial implications and reject any suggestion, in this case or any other case, that they've allowed a person's race to direct their activities.

Senate Democrat leader Reid has now abandoned plans for a vote on health care before Congress' August recess, dealing a blow to Obama's goal of jamming a $24 trillion government takeover of the country’s medical system into law before his plan’s details become known.

Today marks the first time Obama’s overall approval rating has ever fallen below 50% among Likely Voters nationwide, according to the Rasmussen Report’s daily Presidential Tracking Poll. Fifty-one percent (51%) now disapprove of Obama’s job performance.

Gov. Rick Perry, raising the specter of a showdown with the Obama administration, suggested that he would consider invoking states’ rights protections under the 10th Amendment, to resist the president’s nationalization of healthcare, which he said would be "disastrous" for Texas should (it), arrive on Obama’s desk. Interviewed on WBAP/820 AM, Perry said his first hope is that Congress will defeat ObamaCare, but should it pass, he predicted that a number of states might resist the federal health mandate.

This has been such a disastrous week, for Obama, that he jumped at the chance to call Chicago pitcher Mark Buehrle, to congratulate him on accomplishing one of the rarest feats in all of sports: a perfect game. Obama came to Washington from Chicago which is why he wore a White Sox jacket while throwing out the first pitch at the All-Star Game last week.

1 out of 6, that’s a batting average of just .166 – the kind of performance that gets most ball players sent back down to the Minor League. Some Obama supporters are now quietly wondering, if its time for the American people to begin thinking about sending him back to the Illinois State Legislature?
