The Blower’s Week in Review
- OUR NUMBER ONE STORY THIS WEEK was the way the national media mostly ignored Monday’s Just Another Crappy Obama Campaign Event in Cincinnati, and totally ignored that Weak Tea Party excuse for a protest on Fountain Square.
The only thing special was when the Obama met Jerry Springer. Imagine that— the worst president in American history shaking hands with the most embarrassing elected official in Southwest Ohio history. The national media seemed much more interested in the Romney Campaign’s latest tease about his Vice Presidential Pick, and most people hereabouts on Monday were much more concerned about Joey Votto’s knee surgery.
Still, to our local Obama Supporters in the Press, Obama’s visit was like the Second Coming of Christ, especially The Fishwrap. Do you think they were laying it on a little thick with that MacArthur-esque “I will return!” headline?
- OUR NUMBER TWO STORY THIS WEEK was at the City Hall Circus, when everybody was wondering who was picking up the tab for Cincinnati’s so-called Police Chief James Craig’s “I Don’t Wanna Take No Stinkin’ non-Phoenix On-line Test” Legal Team of David A. Pepper, Nathaniel Jones and Jason Groppe plus two law clerk flunkies who showed up at Thursday’s hearing.
Cincinnati police chief James Craig finally made the trip Thursday for the hearing he requested to exempt himself from taking the basic Ohio peace officer certification test. Craig had cancelled two previous hearings.
The peace officer certification board said they had no authority to change the law just for Craig. Craig’s lawyer has seven days to rebut this decision and then there are thirty days for the board to respond.
Craig hasn’t taken the required test, despite having seven full time police tutors. He seeks to be the first person in Ohio history to be exempted.
Did Craig really say it wasn’t in his job description to take the test? Didn’t his on-line college teach him anything? Also at yesterday’s hearing, the attorney for the Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission pointed out to the commission that she didn’t think the waiver Craig is requesting is even legal. No wonder Chief Craig’s attorneys requested time to respond to that. Should Craig’s attorneys have addressed that to begin with? No wonder we’ve never heard about David Pepper’s legal expertise as an attorney before.
- AND OUR NUMBER THREE STORY THIS WEEK was the reaction to Friday’s Colorado Movie Massacre Story by some Obama Supporters in the Press:
On “Good Morning America,” ABC News’ Brian Ross and George Stephanopoulos tried to tie the Colorado Movie Shooter to the Tea Party, just like Obama Supporters in the Press attempted to blame the Tea Party for the Tucson shootings in January 2011, shortly after Republicans swept the midterm elections. Now, with only “107” more days until the in the Presidential Elections, the mainstream media seems poised to do the same.
Later, ABC News was forced to retract its claim and apologize for saying the Colorado Movie Shooter was linked to the Tea Party, just because a guy more than twice the age of the shooter had the misfortune to have the same name, and now he has to disconnect his phone before one of those Liberal, peace-loving loons actually follows through on his threat to take out the Tea Party Patriot with the same name as the shooter. Political Photo-Shopper Edward Cropper shows us Brian Ross’ Emily Litella Apology.
- MONDAY in our Special “Obama Campaign Update” E-dition, The Blower said if it’s Monday, Obama must be in Cincinnati.
Yesterday at the Conservative Agenda, Political Insiders were asking Charles Foster Kane why Obama was coming to Cincinnati for just another campaign event today. “He has to be someplace,” our Beloved Whistleblower Publisher explained, “and Obama’s been campaigning for re-election every day since his Inauguration and with over-taxed payers picking up the $179,750-per-hour tab for Air Force One (which is so convenient for making illegal fund-raising calls), it was just probably our turn again. At least there’s no pretense that Monday’s over-taxed payer funded trip is anything more than a campaign event. And maybe just a little fund-raiser!
Kane said, “It will be interesting to see if John Boehner blasts Obama for misusing over-taxed payers’ fund one more time.”
Not to worry, says Obama’s White House Spokes Dweeb Jay Cardboard, “Over-taxed payers don’t pay for Obama’s campaign travel. No kidding!”
- TUESDAY in our Official “Obama’s Visit Was No BFD” E-dition, The Blower explained Monday was just another crappy Obama campaign event and our “Real E-Mails from Real Subscribers” included:
Obama’s been campaigning for re-election every day since his Inauguration, so showing up in Cincinnati for Monday’s Just Another Obama Crappy Campaign Event with “111” more days until the November Elections is no big deal. —National News Media
The Obama Campaign has always felt welcome in Cincinnati ever since RINO Party Boss Alex T. helped me turn Hamilton County “Blue” in 2008. —Hamilton County Demo-Labor Party Boss Tim Burka
Was publishing Cincinnati Girly Mayor Mark Mallory’s “Love Letter to Obama” on Monday timely enough? —Feckless Fishwrappers
Would it do any good for Republicans to complain about Obama misusing over-taxed payers’ funds one more time? —GOP House Speaker John Boehner
Does anybody remember when Obama was in Cincinnati to deliver his Historic “Bridge Too Far” Campaign Speech last September? He promised all those shovel ready jobs and there were no jobs? —Gary Girder, a Still Unemployed Member of the Amalgamated Union of Bridge Builders
The Obama Campaign chose Music Hall for Monday’s Just Another Obama Crappy Campaign Event so we wouldn’t have so far to walk when the doors opened at 11:30 A.M. and the event didn’t actually start until three hours later. —City Hall Slackers, Taking a Really Long Lunch
No matter how long the wait, we could easily find time to attend Monday’s Just Another Obama Crappy Campaign Event because over-taxed payers are all working. —Political Parasites Looking for More Free Stuff from the Government
- WEDNESDAY in our Special “Post Obama Visit Analysis” E-dition, The Blower asked, “So how much did he make at the fund-raiser?”
Monday was more much ado about nothing during Just Obama’s Crappy Campaign Event in Cincinnati. Obama’s been campaigning for re-election at over-taxed payers’ expense every day since his Inauguration, and Monday it was our turn. It won’t be Obama’s last visit during the then next “111” more days before the November Elections. Somebody will have to speak to the Union Goons on Labor Day at Coney Island.
Obama’s Tuesday schedule showed another busy day for POTUS, as the Obama Campaign raised at least $5.9-million dollars from four fundraisers Obama did in Texas.

- THURSDAY, in our Special “Historic Headlines” E-dition, The Blower was getting ready to celebrate the 43rd anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s walk on the moon and bemoan Obama’s ending of America’s Manned Space Program:
This morning, Hurley the Historian told us to move over because tomorrow’s e-dition belongs to him. After all, won’t it be 43 years ago (July 20, 1969) since we were all watching Neil Armstrong walking on the moon? From 1971 to 1979 Neil Armstrong was professor of Aerospace engineering at the University of Cincinnati. And no doubt, today everybody will be echoing our Quote for Today Committee choice of Armstrong’s immortal: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
- FRIDAY in our Just Another “Conservative Counterpunch” E-dition, The Blower asked if Romney had finally taken the gloves off:
Whistleblower Senior National Political Affairs Analyst Britt Humus said with then only “108” more days until the Presidential Elections, Conservatives were really enjoying Romney going more on the attack these days, especially in Bowling Green, Ohio on Wednesday, when Mitt the Viking accused Obama yesterday of caring more about his own job security than about creating jobs for millions of unemployed Americans.
Meanwhile, the Onion reported Romney came clean and admitted he made $32 Trillion in 2006. [READ THAT STORY HERE]
- SATURDAY in our Special “Political Exploitation” E-dition, The Blower asked, What good is a tragedy if you don’t use it?
As if all that hype about the opening of the “The Dark Knight Rises” weren’t enough, some nut job dressed in black and killed as many people as he could in Colorado at the midnight movie screening. Who says there’s no such thing as bad publicity? What was that movie’s rating anyway—“AK-47?” Some people even suggest the Batman movie shooting imitated a scene in a 1986 comic. [READ MORE ABOUT THAT HERE]
Liberals immediately identified the shooter as a “White Caucasian” and began to blame Rush Limbaugh.
TIME Magazine says there’s nothing wrong with politicizing the Colorado Movie Tragedy.
On CNN, Piers Morgan blamed U.S. Gun Laws. NYC Mayor Bloomberg wanted to know the size of the soft drinks being served in that Colorado movie theater and if Obama and Romney would crackdown on Second Amendment Rights in wake of the movie massacre, as our Photo-Shop Editorial Spoofer Edward Cropper puts it all into perspective.
THE SEEDIEST KIDS OF ALL
Although our campaign is not associated with the Failed United Way, your liberal guilt giving throughout the year still makes it all possible.
SEEDIEST KIDS OF ALL HOT LINE
e-mail your stories about worthy waifs today.
- PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS 2012: The killings in Colorado stunned the political world and led to a momentary pause in campaigning on the presidential trail.
The Romney campaign immediately announced it would be pulling all ads in Colorado until further notice and that Governor Romney would be addressing the Colorado shootings at his New Hampshire event later in the day.
In Fort Myers, Florida, Obama supporters hooted and hollered through Obama’s so-called “remembrance speech for the victims of the Colorado movie shooting,” chanting “Four More Years!” at what was supposed to be a “non-political event.” Obama even said, “But what if Malia and Sasha had been at the theater?” Then the entire audience would’ve had Secret Service protection. You can’t get much more non-political than that.
Aboard Air Force One at over-taxed payers’ expense, Obama Campaign spokesman Jen Psaki said Obama’s reelection campaign has asked affiliates to pull down negative ads in the wake of the movie theater shooting in Colorado. It was not clear whether Obama’s negative ads were being pulled across the country, or just in Colorado.
Obama’s White House Spoke Dweeb Jay Cardboard said “I would say as you know the president believes we need to take common sense measures that protect the Second Amendment rights of Americans while ensuring that those who should not have guns under existing laws do not get them.” What a load of crap that was!
NYC Mayor Bloomberg wanted to know the size of the soft drinks being served in that Colorado movie theater and if Obama and Romney would crackdown on Second Amendment Rights in wake of the movie massacre.
Obviously, with then only “107” more days until the Presidential Elections, politicians will be following Obama’s good friend Rahm Emmanuel’s advice by not letting this crisis goes to waste.
- OHIO RINO PARTY: In Columbus, Buckeye Bureau Chef Gerry Manders reported Ohio Republican Party Chairman Boob Bennett issued the following statement upon Vice President Biden’s Just Another Campaign visit to Columbus: “Neither the latest campaign report released nor Biden’s visit will save the President from the reality that he hasn’t stood up to China for American manufacturing jobs. The fact remains that under Obama, our country’s manufacturing sector has lost half a million jobs and just last month U.S. manufacturing declined for the first time in three years.”
- THE LATEST POLLS: Whistleblower Pollster Ron Rasmussen says Voters strongly believe that it’s important for the government to create an environment that encourages economic growth and ensures economic fairness, but growth is seen as the higher priority.
- OUR LATE NIGHT JOKEWATCHER liked Jay Leno’s “Jobless claims rose again by 35,000 last week. Not good. But it does show that if you’re unsuccessful in this country, you didn’t do it on your own. You had help. Thank you, President Obama.”
- HURLEY THE HISTORIAN says on this date in 1934 Public Enemy Number One John Dillinger was gunned down outside the Biograph Theatre in Chicago. Johnny Depp says, “See, there was violence in America even then.”
- OUR QUOTE FOR TODAY COMMITTEE: chose that famous anti-gun control slogan: “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” But The Blower liked Eddie Izzard’s “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people, and monkeys do too (if they have a gun).”
- VOTER FRAUD UPDATE: In Columbus, Buckeye Bureau Chief Gerry Manders says Ohio Republicans are now questioning the validity of signatures gathered by Voters First, a coalition pushing a ballot issue to change how Ohio legislative and congressional districts are drawn.
- THUGS ‘R US: AFL-CIO Boss Richard Trumka asks Unionists to fight excessive CEO salaries, but he fails to mention he makes eight times as much as the Average American.
- HAMILTON COUNTY RINO PARTY: Did Hamilton County Demo-Labor Party Boss Tim Burka really say the Obama Campaign has always felt welcome in Cincinnati ever since RINO Party Boss Alex T. helped him turn Hamilton County “Blue” in 2008?
- MEDIA MENDACITY: Conservative Columnists have noted how the Obama Administration gutted the historic Welfare Reform Bill, but so far all those Obama Loving networks newscasts have totally ignored the story.
- LIBERAL LUNACY: In Human Events’ “365 Ways to Drive a Liberal Crazy,” #198 says never speak of “Affirmative Action” —only of “Reverse Discrimination.” Elaborate by saying how angry it makes you that talented blacks, Mexican-Americans, and others who secured their jobs and their college places purely on their own merit will forever be looked on with suspicion and resentment as having gotten there purely because of the color of their skin (or other minority-qualifying attributes).
- DELUSIONAL DEMOCRATS: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi the ObamaTax as an “act of fiscal stability” that will save the government money in the long term.
- REPUBLICANS FOR HIGHER TAXES: applaud the Northwest School Board for their 4-1 vote to increase property taxes on the undertaxed citizens of the school district. They condemn fiscal conservative Dan Unger, the one no vote, for saying that the taxpayers should be given as much concern as the tax receivers.
- MORE FECKLESS FISHWRAPPERY: Metro Mole wonders if Skaggie Maggie really sent a letter to those all loyal folks who’d been forced to retire from The Fishwrap, saying in order for her to get her bonus this year, they would no longer be able to buy their newspapers (that were supposed to be free) at discount prices, and they would have to pay the same prices as everyone else, who by the way, just got a letter saying their prices were going up too.
- RACIAL HEALING UPDATE: We’re still waiting to see a list of those Colorado Movie Shooting Victims by race, so our Racial Racketeers won’t fell left out on this story.
- LEGAL BRIEFS: Bluegrass Bureau Chief Ken CamBoo really misses Lovely Lady Lawyer Lisa Wells on WLW Hate Radio. Where did she go?? As many of you know, 700 WLW replaced “Crazy Eric” Deters with Lisa Wells a year and half ago and while she was firing up the airwaves weekend after weekend, during the past month she has only co-hosted shows? Is it that Lisa openly criticized “Crazy Eric” and the all-powerful Bill Cunningham, Eric’s “close and personal friend?” Or were the Greedy Weasels just using her to demonstrate the appearance of diversify on their staff prior to re-licensing? And if they weren’t just being sexist, why’d Cunningham only post the top half of a photo of bikini-clad Lisa on his blog demanding she release the complete photo, for the entertainment of baloney boppers in his audience.
- HOW ABOUT DEM REDS: Typical Reds’ Rooter Farley Fairweather couldn’t stop wondering how many home runs Bronson Arroyo would be giving up in Saturday night’s game.
- THE CINCINNATI MESS (You’ll only read about in The Blower): Outraged Over-Taxed Payer Tino Delgato wonders who had more body guards, Obama or Mallory? Thank goodness that $48 million was spent on Washington Park. They had to have Monday’s Obama Event in the afternoon, since park benches are filled with sleepers at night and in the morning. Go Figure!!!
- CH SNITCH AT 1000 MAIN STREET: says the reason not many courthouse cronies bothered to show up at Monday’s Tea Party’s Rally on Fountain Square was because RINO Party Boss Alex T., Mall Cop GOP forgot to ask them.
- IN ANDERSON: Thursday’s Township Trustees Meeting was cut short so Disgraced Trustee Kevin “Spanky” O’Brien could dash out the back door before reporters from Channels 12 and 19 could ask him about all those Angry Andersonians demanding his resignation, before he goes to trial for masturbating in a woman’s car.
- SOREHEADS IN THE SUBURBS: wonder if Kevin O’Brien would explain a “sorehead” is what you get when you run out of Vaseline.
- OHIO’S SECOND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT: This week, everybody who wonders why you don’t see directions to “Bronze Star Brad” Wenstrup’s campaign office on his web page, e-mailed entries to the Whistleblower Limerick Contest.
- CLERMONT CRONIES: The story-behind-the-story of the Clermont GOP publicly begging for donations to pay for the party headquarters is that the HQ is in a building owned by the Masonic Lodge, and a lot of the old guard (Tim Rudd and company) are Masons. So, in essence, they want over-taxed payers to support their secretive little club and an organization that is historically anti-Catholic. The Blower is not sure which/ if any members of the local Tea Party are members of the Masons, but, at least publicly, the Tea Party claims to be in favor of openness and transparency. So will the Tea Party show its hypocrisy by supporting the funneling of funds to support a secretive organization?
- THIS WEEK IN NORTHERN KENTUCKY: Bluegrass Bureau Chief Ken CamBoo says when Mayor Diane “Blondie” Whalen spotted Anderson Township Dis-Trustee Kevin “Spanky” O’Brien at JD Byrider used car sales in Florence, she immediately started making calls to area communities trying to determine which village was missing its idiot.
- READING THE TEA LEAVES: Who says our local Tea Partiers are asleep in 2012? Twice as many Patriots as expected laced up their boots and joined the cavalry at Tuesday night’s Anderson Tea Party Meeting.
- NOW HERE’S THE LATEST FROM BUNKY TADWELL, THE BARD OF CLEVES: Summer is well under way and we have another timely poem from Bunky Tadwell, the Bard of Cleves.
Seeing is Believing
Ah the wondrous days of summer
The cricket’s cheerful song.
The see-thru clothes the girlies wear
And the break-a-way lacy thong.
- THIS WEEK AT A MEETING OF THE CONSERVATIVE AGENDA: Political Insiders were asking Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane about Obama’s ridiculous claim that successful businessmen didn’t succeed on their own. “Obama might have something there,” Kane admitted. “The Blower certainly couldn’t accomplish as much as we have without all our wonderful snitches.
- AND COMING UP IN “THE WEEK THAT WILL BE”: The Blower’s Campaign Countdowns to will continue. Speaking of which, the 2012 Elections are only “106” days away.
Monday if the Obama and Romney campaigns are still exploiting the Colorado Movie Massacre, and we’ll take our shot at it too.
Tuesday is “Cousins Day” in Kentucky, and a really special time for family fun, if you know what we mean.
Wednesday is “Culinarians Day” which most cooks would enjoy most be eating out.
Thursday is “All or Nothing Day.” Extremists will like that.
The first line of next Friday’s limerick is: “Here’s to thank when you succeed” and some of you limerick writers might see who you might find you give you some help.
And Saturday we’ll probably be reviewing Friday night’s opening of the London Olympics, so we’ll all have to get in shape for that.
