If you want to find true spookiness during this spookiest of seasons, check out these latest quotes from prominent Democrats recently seen haunting the halls and walls of the White House and Congress. First, President Barack Obama (my italics):

“I guarantee it’s going to be a close election [in 2012] because the economy is not where it wants to be and, even though I believe all the choices we’ve made have been the right ones, we’re still going through difficult circumstances.”

This is from his recent interview with ABC’s Jake Tapper. If Barack Obama truly believes he’s never made a mistake while in office, he is delusional on a scale unprecedented since Richard Nixon’s “I am not a crook”. After all, how can you say you’ve never made a single mistake in office, Mr. Obama, when under your Presidency the American people are enjoying the following fruits of your labors:

• The ”misery index” today is at its highest level in 28 years.
• The unemployment rate has been above 9 percent for 27 of the last 29 months.
• Long-term unemployment is at its highest level in more than 70 years.
• The national debt is $14.8 trillion — nearly $5 trillion more than four years ago.
• The federal deficit is $1.3 trillion — more than eight times higher than four years ago.
• Federal spending is $3.57 trillion — nearly $1 trillion more than four years ago.
• The United States’ credit rating has been downgraded for the first time in history.
• You spent $814 billion on a stimulus program so unemployment wouldn’t rise above 8 percent and would drop to 6.5 percent by today. Since then, unemployment has never dropped below 8 percent and is 9.1 percent today.
• A record 45 million Americans (nearly one in seven) use the food-stamp program — 20 million more than four years ago.
• A record 3.8 million foreclosures were filed last year.
• Seventy-seven percent of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track.

Hat tip: NRO’s Peter Kirsanow. If that’s perfection, I sure would like to see what a picture of failure would look like.

“It’s very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine; it’s the public-sector jobs where we’ve lost huge numbers, and that’s what this legislation is all about.”

That’s Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, speaking from the Senate floor in defense of S. 1723, the called “teachers and first responders bill”, unlimately rejected by both Senate Democrats (although you’ll never hear that from the mainstream dino-media) and those mean, nasty Republicans. This from the five-term senator from Nevada, where, BTW, the current unemployment is 13.4% and where the nation’s highest foreclosure rate ain’t goin’ down any time soon.

As Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey writes, “Anyone with a functioning conscience would blush while claiming that private-sector job growth has been “just fine” while shilling for funding of bureaucrats.” But I gave up on ol’ senile Harry a long time ago saying anything that would make sense. Hopefully, the GOP in 2012 will not make the same kind of mistakes that over-sealous Tea Partiers in Nevada made that resulted in Reid being elected for another six-year term.

“Let’s get it straight, guy. Don’t screw around with me.”

That’s Vice President Joe Biden responding to a journalist’s question about his repeated statements that the number of rapes nationwide would increase if Republicans don’t sign on to President Obama’s latest “jobs” proposal.

Never mind the fact that Biden’s assertions are the most outrageous lies – so much so that no less than the Washington Post – the Washington Post! – had to knock him down a few notches. Once again we see the occupants of this White House – the house of every American, liberal and conservative alike – being used as a non-stop election central run amok where large sections of Americans. In this case Republicans (as usual), but in the past bankers, corporations, corporate jet owners, ATM developers, the Cambridge, Mass. police, etc. have been demonized. Not criticized. DEMONIZED.

Biden’s comments are breathtakingly both stupid and ignorant, demeaning to the office he holds. But I’m not sure between him and Barack Obama their offices can be demeaned any more than what they have been. It’s almost as if these guys are doing the political form of the Limbo Rock, seeing just how low they can go.

What’s truly frightening about these comments is how blatant their lies are, and there’s no one – not a one – in the mainstream dino-media interested in performing the slightest amount of journalism to call them on it. Journalism is dead in this country – unless, of course, the target is a Republican. When people believe, and I mean truly believe, their own lies they are capable of anything, weaving an alternative universe around them in order to achieve their political goals. Washington right now is a dangerous place, and this country needs to be rescued from these pathetic liars and their bullying socialist agenda as soon as November 2012 comes around.
