The 'Obamaphone Lady'
Wall Street Jounal, by James Taranto

Original Article

Posted By:BamaMan, 10/1/2012 4:19:03 PM

This columnist both laughed and cringed at the "Obamaphone Lady" video that last week got wide play on YouTube, with boosts from Matt Drudge and Rush Limbaugh. It's one of a series of interviews someone using the handle RealFreedom1776 shot outside a Mitt Romney appearance in Bedford, Ohio, a Cleveland suburb. The Service Employees International Union was staging a protest against the Romney rally. The Obamaphone Lady, who as far as we know hasn't been otherwise identified, is a middle-aged black woman with a loud, gravelly voice.

Phones for votes. Thanks Mr. Pimp President for redistributing my money. Keep it up and I'll be on food stamps and unemployment soon.

I might have to give up my Romneyphone-- yes I worked fro the money that paid for it!

I suspect the disgust the public has for this woman and the Obamaphone policy is wide and deep, but mostly silent. May their voices be heard on Nov. 6th.

Mr. Tarantino points out the program began under Bush but what he fails to mention that it total a billion phones plus..all expanded under obama. So nice try slick. Also he brought up the documentary done by Piglosi's daughter pointing out the racist comments made by John McCain supporters. He forgets that several of those (more than half) were later vetted and found to be paid by the DNC party. Oops. Bet if some vetting was done on the PhoneLady and some intense digging into her background you would find, she is getting paid by the SEIU to protest, she is making money on the side well above the limit for receiving benefits.

FTA: she neglects to mention that the 1988 Horton ad was made by a political action committee, not the Bush campaign itself.

Even that isn't completely true. The first use of Willie Horton's release was by Al Gore against Mike Dukakis in the primaries.

I was very disappointed this weekend, when a blog I read said it was racist of Rush to play this, and independent voters like her found it disturbing, and linked to Romney. This person is supposedly a learned person, a law prof. Yet I don't recall this blogger bemoaning MSNBC's blatant near constant race baiting. And another thing, I'm sorry, but how is it not racism that 95% of blacks will vote for this man? Near 25% unemployment, record levels of food stamp use, and poverty.

The bottom line is, those who are the "makers" are darned sick of the "takers". Working hard to provide free phones and so much more free stuff for those who do not work, and who do not want to work (ever). Not fair, and the Left is all about fair.

The question then arises ???
Did SEIU just pick her up from the ghetto, pay her to picket, and then bus her to the event ?

OR, is she a working member of SEIU, and has a steady job ??

If she is the latter, than she may have given FALSE pretenses to receive her "Obama" phone !!!

Is she a "Professional Picket" ??? And not reporting that income to IRS ?

Unfortunately, the toothless woman represents many obama supporters.
And as to the cell phones, they are called obamaphones by blacks. They are convinced that barack is responsible for them having the phones.
The program was initially intended to provide poor people with landlines so they could call 911. Cell phones were not in common use back then. But the program has been distorted and expanded by obama, without question. Only one phone per family is allowed, but that requirement is routinely ignord.
The cell companies have no incentive to check on eligibility.

More proof that the Obamboozler has zero intentions of doing anything but spend this country into the ground. He is letting the air out of the financial tires of our country to make it weaker any way he can and in the process making more and more people dependent on the government for everything. It suits his political ambitions to make the government the central focus of everyone's needs.

No doubt that the Obama campaign has her secreted away in a five star resort until after the election. They can't afford to have her out in public or subject to interviews.

Reading the New Republic piece by Tom Donnelly of the Constitutional Accountability Center (a self-described organization of "constitutional progressives"), you´d think you´d gone back in time two years. "It´s the blockbuster case of the term," Donnelly says, referring to a dispute over ObamaCare now before the Supreme Court. "It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts´s leadership. . . . The stakes for his reputation--and that of his Court--couldn´t be higher." "Chief Justice Roberts has often spoken about how important it is for the justices to maintain the legitimacy of the Court--by limiting divisive rulings, moving the law

Here´s the rest of the paragraph: ". . . a new glitch has come to light: Incorrect poverty-level guidelines are automatically telling what could be tens of thousands of eligible people they do not qualify for subsidized insurance."

WASHINGTON — Ronald Reagan used to say the nine most terrifying words in the English language were: "I´m from the government and I´m here to help." Barack Obama is offering Americans his own twist on that message: He´s from the government and he needs your help. Frustrated by the inability of Congress and the White House to reach agreement on much of anything, the president is increasingly relying on his powers of persuasion to cajole people and organizations to help tackle some of the country´s big problems —voluntarily. Lots of presidents promote volunteerism, of course. This is something different. The president this year

With just 250 shopping days until Election Day, a New York Times/CBS News has good news for Republicans. Asked how they plan to vote for the House, "42 percent say they will back Republicans in November, and 39 percent indicate that they will back Democrats." Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Megan Thee-Brenan note that´s "a difference within the poll´s margin of sampling error." More pertinent, however, is that this "generic ballot" question tends to overstate Democratic support. In October 2010, just before the Republicans picked up 63 seats and a majority, the Democrats had a one-point edge, 43% to 42%, in

Sometimes it´s wise to resist the temptation to form an opinion on every event related to culture and politics. The guys at MediaMutters.org note one such case under the headline "Fox Freaks Out Over CVS Ending Sales of Tobacco": On February 5, CVS Caremark announced that it would stop selling cigarettes and other tobacco products at its pharmacy stores by the beginning of October. . . . On Fox´s The Real Story, host Gretchen Carlson approached the CVS decision with suspicion and a remarkably uninformed premise, asking, "Is it OK legally . . . to restrict tobacco availability in a private store

Whether or not legalizing marijuana is a good idea, as a purely descriptive matter it is an idea whose time has come. In 1996 California voters approved Proposition 215, a ballot measure immunizing from prosecution those who use marijuana under a physician´s recommendation. A 2003 state law, drolly titled Senate Bill 420, established a regulatory regime designed to "facilitate the prompt identification of qualified patients . . . in order to avoid unnecessary arrest"--i.e., to make medical marijuana easier to obtain. Since 1996, 19 more states and the District of Columbia have enacted laws to permit medical marijuana, according to ProCon.org.

Ezra Klein is back in line. The Journolist founder, who now runs Wonkblog for the Washington Post, took some flak from other left-liberal journalists last year when he acknowledged that the ObamaCare exchanges had serious technical flaws. But now, as we move into Phase 3 of the ObamaCare failure--the unraveling of its economic assumptions--Klein and his wonkblogger staff are full denial. One result has been an entertaining and informative set of rebuttals from the heterodox liberal blogger Mickey Kaus. It began with a Dec. 17 post by Wonkblog´s Sarah Kliff with the less-reassuring-than-intended title "Why Obamacare Won´t Spiral Into Fiery, Actuarial

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
