House officials order Rep. Steve Stockman to take down ‘Obama Failometer’



Rep. Steve Stockman’s contempt for President Barack Obama knows no bounds. But House leaders have boundaries, and they say Stockman has crossed them.

House leaders today vetoed the Texas Republican’s attempt to visually display his displeasure with President Obama’s job creation efforts.

Stockman was ordered to take down his “Obama Failometer”, a 10-foot-long scoreboard, from its temporary home in a Cannon House Office Building hallway this afternoon.

The House Office Building Commission has a policy that prohibits and displays or items in the hallways, according to a spokesman for the Sergeant At Arms. The House Superintendent is in charge of making sure this policy is enforced.

3. Are all these people 12 years old? Where's the "Obama has cooties" sign?

One wonders what phenomenal success has resulted from Steve Stockman’s "job creation efforts"? Oh that's right, he's made mo effort whatsoever

Nevermind 12...these wingnuts act like they're toddlers.

19. If they had total control, Mittens would be prez right now.

The people do matter. But if you want to just give up, you can do that.

27. Preach it!

Certain Texans seem to be under the misguided notion that most of the Hispanics in Texas are illegal immigrants. Pissing them off will only make them that much more active in government. As my legal Mexican American husband says, "Bring It."

28. Yep, I lived in Houston for years, and I have seen that attitude.

I also had many Hispanic friends, some illegal and some born and bred in the good ole' USA. I even knew several US citizens, whose families were probably in Texas before it was a state, whose first language was Spanish. They were Texans and US citizens, but they were looked down on because they had an accent. Must be illegal, right?

It seems that the right has bought into the "illegal" meme to the fullest extent....and they will pay in the end. Good.

10. Steve Stupidslime Stockman.. the gift

that keeps on giving. He and nugent can whine about that tonight too. While Stockman's ilk in the House are the ones who Obstruct the President's JOB's Act in America.

This one looks like he's building his own petard at an accelerated speed.

13. I guess Mr.Failometer here never got the memo that

Obama won re-election...yeah, so much for him being such a failure.

Frankly, there should be a failometer for this GOP-led congress. Remind everyone how much their policies and obstruction of the president are slowing job growth and the recovery.

15. Is that a new rule?

I'm at Cannon fairly regularly, and I know I've seen signs outside at least one member's office talking about the national debt figure and how much that comes down to per household. I haven't seen it recently, though the members play "musical offices" before the new terms start, and I just might not be walking down the right hallways anymore.

he calls Nugent a "very articulate spokesman."

Nugent is who you use as an example of how fucking stupid a Republican can be.

24. Here is an interesting background on this guy.

He was homeless until he became a born again Christian. He worked as an accountant in the computer sales and lab researcher division of IBM.

I wonder if he was recieving those entitilement benifits- food stamps,section 8 housing,medicaid, while he was homeless- now he wants to cut- for the current homeless people that want to follow in his footsteps.

25. Anyone know what this "Failometer" says? And, 0-1000 ... what?

What's he counting?
. Republican propaganda points?

Is it just a box with what he thinks is a big number: 1000?

I'm sure the written portion is just rehashed talking points. But, is there anything new?

Is this just a big number and putting words like fail and Obama next to each other because he knows how to use a space bar?

certain of two things. It will make no sense and it will be based on rethug lies.
