Now is the moment the oceans were to begin to recede and the planet was to begin to heal! And now, to convince you that it’s happening as planned, it’s time to
unleash our dogs enlist our Media campaign advance team to get the word out.
NBC was first to step up to the plate, showcasing Lady M’s good wishes and best intents for the health of the little people. They found a way to also displaying her amazing athletic abilities in a “Biggest Losers” two-part special, part one of which debuted this week. It’s been hyped for over 3 weeks now, so we’re really getting our “money’s worth" out of this in-kind campaign contribution.
Lady M was on hand at the Big White to welcome America’s Biggest Losers, after their total makeovers:
something she’s done often:
And even though we taped the work out in the East Room weeks ago, it’s half time in America, people: or at least half time in America’s Biggest Loser Race. We have to wait until next week to catch NBC’s complete, spectacular footage of Lady M working it with the remaining losers in the East Room (you may remember our embargoed photos from this unprecedented workout).
Meanwhile at a luncheon across town Chairman of the Associated Press, Dean Singleton, was on assignment, introducing Big Guy. For some reason Dean felt it necessary to go beyond the customary press suck-up and essentially gave Big Guy’s whole campaign speech for him! Sans TOTUS! This guy’s good.
I think Dean just felt really bad for BO because of the historically disrespectful and unprecedented harsh treatment demonstrated by 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Jerry Smith towards BO, his Attorney General and his entire DOJ. Talk about acting stupidly!

Judge Smith even handed out a homework assignment for the dummy:
“I will not throw spitballs at the Supreme Court… Repeat this statement fifty more times, President Obama, single-spaced, on three pages, by Thursday.”
Anyway, whether it was Judge Smith’s request, or something else, Big Guy did take yesterday’s presser as an opportunity to walk his comments back a little:
And the point I was making is that the Supreme Court is the final say on our Constitution and our laws, and all of us have to respect it, but it’s precisely because of that extraordinary power that the Court has traditionally exercised significant restraint and deference to our duly elected legislature, our Congress. And so the burden is on those who would overturn a law like this. [ed. some feel that the burden is on the legislators to pass laws that conform to the Constitution, butt I reserve that discussion for another day.]
Despite the nice intro, you can tell Big Guy still wasn’t very happy to be there.
We’ve got that smile turned upside down again! Which seems to amuse IMF Managing Director, Christine Lagarde:
“The French have a word for people like you, Mon Chéri, ‘charlatan’ – I believe it means the same in English, non?”
And believe me - Ms. Lagarde knows a thing or two about charlatans.
Anyway, to shore things up on the home front, and since he had half the press corps in the room, Big Guy went on to instruct them on how to properly frame his arguments in future reportage:
"This bears on your reporting," President Obama said to journalists. "I think that there is oftentimes the impulse to suggest that if the two parties are disagreeing then they're equally at fault and the truth lies somewhere in the middle. And an equivalence is presented which I think reinforces peoples' cynicism about Washington in general. This is not one of those situations where there's an equivalency."
"As all of you are doing your reporting, I think it's important to remember that the positions that I am taking now on the budget and a host of other issues. if we had been having this discussion 20 years ago or even 15 years ago … would've been considered squarely centrist positions,"
Wow! I don’t know about in constitutional law, butt I do know that in any lower court that’s what’s known as a leading question.
According to Steven Hayward, the curriculum of Big Guy’s constitutional law course at the University of Chicago
…dealt exclusively with the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment—the favorite, all-purpose clause for liberal jurists to use to right wrongs and make us more equal by judicial fiat. There is no evidence that Obama ever taught courses that considered other aspects of constitutionalism, such as executive power, the separation of powers, the Commerce Clause, or judicial review itself.
And it appears, according to Mr. Haywood that Big Guy has always been a big proponent of leading questions, as illustrated in one of his final exam questions from his class on constitutional law:
I have a copy of one of his final exams. It is a long hypothetical involving civil rights, which begins thus:
“In part, Hardsville’s racial isolation is the result of white flight and the limited economic means at the disposal of the black community. It is also well documented, however, that Hardsville’s racial isolation arose in part due to decisions by a white-controlled city government prior to the seventies that were purposely discriminatory.”
You would have to be an ignoramus not to be able to figure out what the
wright right answer to this question from Professor Obama is.
Let’s hope the press corpse is at least as smart as his constitutional law students were.
Oh, and just for the record: Detroit got 100% on that test, butt still hasn’t figured out the right answer.
Detroit: I give it an A-
