Mar 25: the week started with bad news about Obama trying to pay off victims of Kandahar massacre an amount of $50,000 per victim (click here for more details)
Mar 26: Obama was over-heard telling Russia, “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this can be solved, but it’s important for him [Vladimir Putin] to give me space. . . . This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility. ”—he was criticized for promising a concession to Russia after the election of course. He became, rightfully so, a target for Republicans from McCain, Boehner, Santorum to Romney. I, on the other hand, cautioned that this might be a “political promise” to the independent voters that he may be more moderate in his second term (click here)—a promise that he will have no incentive to carry out even if he wins in November.
Mar 26-28: ObamaCare was on the chopping block in the U.S. Supreme Court. Most legal “experts” believe that the individual mandate will be ruled unconstitutional (click here). The only question is whether the whole ObamaCare will be invalidated as well (click here). Ironically, ObamaCare was supposed to be Obama’s legacy—his only record that he can boast about during the election. Now, Republicans would want the U.S. Supreme Court to rule the individual mandate unconstitutional but yet leave the rest of ObamaCare—this would be a very good topic for Republicans to run on this year, repeal and fix ObamaCare mess—in place.
Mar 28-29: Newt suspended his campaign. Romney gained in WI polls—leading Santorum between 7-10% according to latest polls posted at RealClearPolitics.com. Romney remained front runner in MD—with Santorum is not on the ballot for DC. Romney picked endorsements from Rubio, George H.W. Bush, and Paul Ryan. Why are these news bad for Obama? By next Tuesday, 4/3, if Romney wins the 3 winner-take-all primaries in WI, MD, DC, the GOP race may be over. Republicans will begin to unite behind Romney. Santorum would have no chance to attack Romney for Obama (click here). The election will be then turned to Obama’s records on economy and unemployment, energy, and foreign policies—or lack of.
Mar 30: latest polls (click here) showed Obama slipped in his approval rates—going from positive to negative.
But a bad week for Obama administration can’t go without Biden’s dumb remarks, can it? Biden wanted to create a global minimum tax because American taxpayers should not subsidize for investing abroad than investing domestically (click here for details and promise me you will go and read). And at a fund raising event, Biden was quoted as saying “I never had an interest in being a mayor ’cause that’s a real job. You have to produce. That’s why I was able to be a senator for 36 years.”
Ah, it’s time that both former Senators Biden and Obama should do a real job. It’s time to take both out of Washington DC for good.
