Via Memeorandum, the Hill posts: “Obama targets GOP for fall offensive“, emphasis mine:

Kill the body, and the head will die.” — Joe Frazier

President Obama is preparing to fight a political war this fall on two fronts — the first against Republicans who want his job and the second against Republicans who want to make his job more difficult.

Obama is taking dead-aim at the latter group, targeting Congress in a fall offensive that the president’s reelection campaign hopes will bruise the overall GOP image beyond repair.

Not that I’m in the GOP, but I live close enough to DC that collateral damage from all of this anti-New Tone rhetoric is a concern.

Would that the young man who is whipping himself into a bureucratic frenzy with all this pugilistic talk could come over to someplace ending in -stan and walk around a while in some body armor. I daresay that might help him burn off a little bit of blood sugar. Read the whole thing.

The country needs a calm, serious, honest look at the problems caused by federal overreach, not this silly attempt at a high-school halftime pep talk. Read the whole thing, and then point and laugh. After the chuckle, get back on task brushing these Lefty nitwits aside, in that exceptional American fashion.

That is all.

    ….and thus he can campaign on the taxpayer’s dime!

    Obama is a bona fide H8R.  As are nearly all of the Dhimmicrats.

    “The country needs a calm, serious, honest look at the problems caused by federal overreach, not this silly attempt at a high-school halftime pep talk.”

    Define calm, serious, honest. Name the problems caused by federal overreach.

    This peptalk to a rabid-but-leashed base is calm, serious, and honest.

    Obama only knows one trick.  He’s limited, because he isn’t terribly bright – as the letter he wrote WHILE President of Harvard Law Review proves. 

    1.  Give a speech.
    2.  Propose failed socialist schemes again in some slightly modified form.
    3.  Hit the links.
    4.  Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Smitty…if you get a chance go to Tashkent for R&R. Stay at the Poytant hotel. Tell them you’re from AFCAP for best rates.
    Its a truely safe city. But try to get to Bukhara & Samakhan too. Check the tour agency on the way to Amir Tamir park from the Poytant…tell’em Lee sent you.

    The obvious conclusion here is that Obama, Reid and Pelosi are all dead bodies.

    No, Smitty, you need to come home.  Who else is going to lead the guerrilla war effort?

    The “New Tone” just called.  It’s telling me to make sure I have a CCW permit.
