Can you say epic fail? And it gets even better. While the man child was losing followers, Republican Senators gained 6,500.
I guess the 37,000 didn’t appreciate the barrage of tweets throughout the day. For example:
Exit quotation from one Twitter user who got tired of being spammed: “I just unfollowed @barackobama seemed like a good #compromise.”
OK so this might be a shallow post, but it’s the weekend and I’m feeling catty and I can’t help but notice that whenever Barry is allowed to pick out his own clothes, it’s almost always a fashion fail.

First, black jeans have been out since the millennium. Second, the high waist with the tightly cinched belt screams dork. Third, tucking the golf shirt into a pair of jeans is also a foul on the play. Fourth, the offending jeans are floods. And finally, pairing jeans and sneakers should be illegal.
I’m starting to think the man has chicken legs and this is why he refuses to wear shorts in public. If that’s the case, someone needs to get the man a pair of wind pants.
Call me biased, but this is what the Commander in Chief should look like when biking:
And don’t get me started on Michelle.
Update: Mr. loppyd has scolded me for my sneakers and jeans comment. He thinks it’s generational. Since it’s Sunday and I’m feeling charitable, I hereby declare that jeans and sneakers on a man under 50 should be illegal.
15 year low…
Sales of previously owned U.S. homes dropped more steeply than expected in July to their lowest pace in 15 years, an industry group said on Tuesday, implying further loss of momentum in the economic recovery.
The National Association of Realtors said sales dropped a record 27.2% from June to an annual rate of 3.83 million units, the lowest level since May 1995. June’s sales pace was revised down to a 5.26 million-unit pace.
Try as they might, there is no way to put a shine on this.
US private employers added a paltry 13,000 jobs in June, compared to a revised gain of 57,000 in May, a report by a payrolls processor showed on Thursday.
The May figure was originally reported as a gain of 55,000.
The median of estimates from 30 economists surveyed by Reuters for the ADP Employer Services report, jointly developed with Macroeconomic Advisers, was for a rise of 60,000 private-sector jobs in June.
The ADP figures come ahead of the government’s much more comprehensive labor market report on Friday.
That report is expected to show a fall in nonfarm payrolls of 110,000 in June overall, as many temporary workers hired to complete the government’s decennial census were laid off.
So in the MSM and certain blogger’s minds that must make 50% of Americans raaaacists.
Last week’s jubilant signing of the health care overhaul, Obama’s signature domestic initiative, seems to have given the president little boost. Instead, his standing on four personal qualities has sagged, and 50% of those surveyed say he doesn’t deserve re-election.
In the survey last Friday through Sunday, the president gets tough treatment:
• Obama’s standing on four key personal qualities, including being a strong and decisive leader and understanding the problems Americans face in their lives, has dipped. For the first time since the 2008 campaign, he fails to win a majority of people saying he shares their values and can manage the government effectively.
• Twenty-six percent say he deserves “a great deal” of the blame for the nation’s economic problems, nearly double the number who felt that way last summer. In all, half say he deserves at least a moderate amount of blame.
The blame directed at his predecessor, former president George W. Bush, hasn’t eased, however: 42% now give Bush “a great deal” of blame, basically unchanged from 43% last July.
• By 50%-46%, those surveyed say Obama doesn’t deserve re-election.
Obama’s approval rating on handling the economy, foreign affairs and the federal budget deficit hasn’t significantly changed from February. It has risen a bit on health care, though he doesn’t get majority approval on any of the categories.
Can you imagine the numbers without the MSM cheerleading squad?
