Indeed it is.

Jon Huntsman mentioned as possible secretary of state

Officials…are pointing to Jon Huntsman, the former Utah governor, Obama’s ambassador to China and Republican presidential candidate…

Huntsman is still widely respected by the administration even if he’d hoped to unseat Obama. Choosing Huntsman would allow the president to claim bipartisanship while putting an Asia expert in the job at a time when the U.S. is focusing more attention on the world’s most populous continent.

Yes, please! I realize this is speculative and unlikely to happen but a man can dream.

Can I just say that as a non-American, I really thought that maybe Americans would have enough sense this time. You elected the same leader that promised unemployment would be dropped, jobs would be created and national debt would be decreased. You had a new candidate, who had success as a governor, got more people working, has economic knowledge. WHY?! You basically threw away economic freedom for free handouts. Well, enjoy your socialism America, it worked so well for Nazi Germany hahahaha.

Let’s talk about how awesome that election was

Washington and Colorado voted to legalize marijuana, Maine and Maryland voted for same sex marriage, Elizabeth Warren won, and of course POTUS won.

We did this together, America.

The Obama Effect - Theatrical Trailer

I thought nothing could be worse than the trailer for Atlas Shrugged and then I saw this.

Disguised as deficit reduction plan, it’s really an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country. It’s nothing but thinly veiled Social Darwinism.

President Obama

What kind of rhetoric is this? Tossing around terms like “radical” is what Republicans do….or so I thought.

Can even the most devoted Obama admirer plausibly claim that a new day of harmony and cooperation actually dawned in Washington?

Young Obama Supporters Becoming Apathetic

Obama enjoyed a wave of youth support in his run to the presidency, winning 66 percent of voters aged 18-to-29 in the race against Republican Senator John McCain. Twenty-two million young voters cast ballots, making up about 18 percent of the electorate — two million more than in 2004, according to exit polls and the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement. Today that passion has cooled amid gridlock and partisanship in Washington and a surge in unemployment that is souring young voters.

The turnout will not be great,” Curtis Gans, director of the Center for the Study of the American Electorate in Washington, said in a phone interview. The war in Afghanistan, a lack of progress on closing Guantanamo Bay and a dismal job picture taint Obama’s prospects, he said. The unemployment rate among 18- to 24-year-olds was 16.3 percent at the end of last year, the highest since record-keeping began in 1948, according to a February Pew Research Center report.

“There’s not the sense that four more years of Obama will change the world for the better,” Gans said. Still, Obama stands a “reasonably good chance” of winning, he said.

No one’s announced a war, young lady. You’re jumping the gun a little bit there.

Sen. Orrin Hatch: “Obama has traded in the hard hat and lunch  bucket category of the Democratic Party for a hipster fedora and a double skim latte.”

Mr. Hatch, say what you will about the President and his nonexistent hats, but I will be god damned if I sit here and listen to you disparage lattes.
