A Mostly Center-Right Place For Those With Irritable Obama Syndrome and Diversity Fatigue

Sunday Soliloquy: Chicago and the Etymology of “Bottom Bitch” January 31, 2010

On a bitter cold winter day like today, it may be plausible to offer excuses for not visiting Chicago.  However if there are very important gubernatorial and senate races going on, especially a race in which the best supporters during your presidential campaign are candidates.

One would think that President Barack Obama could at least make an appearance in the Windy City rather than cast absentee ballots for his 2008 presidential campaign vote whores. Quinn, Blago, Giannoulias…these guys worked the streets hard for pimp daddy Barry O.

When he became president, many Chicagoans believed it was highly probable that Obama would follow in the steps of his predecessor George W. Bush by  visiting his hometown often.  No such luck.

A year into his presidency, there is little presence of Obama in Chicago beyond faded HOPE posters and his empty home  in the Hyde Park neighborhood guarded by several police cars.

From this article in the Chicago Tribune

It hasn’t exactly been sweet home Chicago in Obama’s first year

By Bob Secter

January 18, 2010

…Chicagoans may fancy themselves an unsentimental, nose-to-the-grindstone lot, but folks in Obama’s adoptive hometown indulged in a wave of parochial euphoria with his election. The huge, election night rally in Grant Park was electric with possibilities, not the least of which was the notion that Chicago would be transformed into the nation’s unofficial second capital and reap a big payoff in both stature and dollars.

Even the typically measured Obama appeared to get carried away when he told the Tribune that he hoped to return home every couple of months and considered the South Side his “Kennebunkport,” an allusion to the Maine family compound of President George H.W. Bush.

In hindsight, there was wishful thinking all around. As the nation marks the anniversary of the first Chicago president’s

  • Obama’s political magic hasn’t kept the state from suffering through a recession like everybody else, and the state and city governments are drowning in red ink.
  • Chicago’s high-profile bid for the 2016 Olympics went down in flames despite Obama’s personal intervention.
  • To some, the scandal-marred transfer of Obama’s U.S. Senate seat to Roland Burris may be the most lopsided Chicago trade since Lou Brock for Ernie Broglio.
  • It’s not that presidents can’t have a palpable impact on their home bases.

Springfield has built a thriving tourist industry around Abraham Lincoln. Tiny Crawford, Texas, got a huge economic shot in the arm whenever President George W. Bush showed up at his Prairie Chapel Ranch for a lengthy stay with an entourage of aides, security personnel, media and onlookers.

Hmmm, sure doesn't look like Chicago to me.

But Chicago is a far cry from Crawford; Plains, Ga., ( Jimmy Carter); or even Little Rock, Ark., ( Bill Clinton). Sizing up what it means for a modern president to hail from an already bustling commercial and cultural center is a more challenging task.

“At the very least, it will become part of the keepsake box of the city, like having Oprah in town or being home to the 1893 World’s Fair,” said Chris Mooney, a political scientist at the University of Illinois’ Springfield campus. “Every big city needs to be noticed now and then. Even if you’re already the prom queen, it’s nice to be complimented.”

Chris Mooney has it wrong. Chicago is not a prom queen at Obama’s ball.   It is a bottom bitch- nothing more, nothing less.

Others are beginning to see that this great city, which brought forth our nation’s first African American president is nothing more than one of Barack Obama’s “bottom bitches”.  Pimped out and left behind.

What is a ” bottom bitch” you may ask?  Why does Afrocity continue to use this seemingly derogatory term?

I can just feel the feminist  blogosphere (no pun intended) tense up.

What is wrong with Afrocity?  She knows that we never say “bitch”.   But this is reality and I did say the “B-word”, particularly the “double B-term” –bottom bitch.

Several years ago I first heard of a bottom bitch while watching the 2005 movie Hustle and Flow featuring actor Terrence Howard as “Djay”.  Djay was a pimp desperately striving to make something of himself by laughing a successful hit wrap song while keeping his hoes in line.  In one memorable scene Djay refers to one of his best hoes as a bottom bitch after she comes through for him during a frustrating moment when she presents him with a lava lamp to brighten his recording space.

Although the Youtube clip leaves out the bottom bitch term, I wanted you to actually see the scene to in order to create context and mood.  Here is Djay’s exact quote:

“That’s a bottom bitch for you. I mean, we got everything we need right here. And all this stuff in this… this little-bitty space, man, it just looks so much bigger now. I’m here trying to squeeze a dollar out of a dime, and I ain’t even got a cent, man.”

I was actually embarrassed at my reaction to the term.  I was almost touched when Djay uttered those words.  A bottom bitch is someone you can count on the most. Your main bitch.  He or she brings home the goods no matter what you do or say to her.  This is your main hoe who works the streets for you day and night.

Bottom bitches come in all shapes, sizes and botox enhanced forms. In this photo, it is really hard to tell who excatly the bottom bitch is.

For another take on bottom bitches, I  also will let the nice kids of South Park explain that for you. In one episode Butters decides to become a pimp and takes a bottom bitch:

Again,  here we see as with the Hustle and Flow definition,  that a bottom bitch is the Rock of Gibraltar when it comes to your hoes.

However, that does not necessarily translate into a mutually beneficial relationship for the bottom bitch.  Chicago more than any other piece of politically expedient ass in Barack Obama’s life is learning the downside when it comes to being bestowed the coveted presidential bottom bitch title.

Continuing from the Tribune article:

If anything qualifies as Obama-inspired local pork, it could be the administration’s decision to buy the empty Thomson prison in northwestern Illinois as a holding tank for terror suspects now detained at Guantanamo Bay. Obama was likely aware of the prison’s availability because he was a member of the Illinois Senate in 2002 when state officials, in a cost-cutting move, decided not to open the just completed facility.

Wow Obama!!! Thanks for those Gitmo detainees Barry! You sure know how to show the folks back in your home state some love.

In short, Chicago and the State Of Illinois, is still in the state of pre-hope and post-change.

Black on black crime is still a general trend in the city since Obama’s election.  Scandalous cell phone videos of youths beating each other to death and failure to secure the 2016 Olympics, did nothing for the image of Chicago.  Images of Michelle Obama in he red and black Narcisso Rodriguez election night dress are eclipsed by the blood of Derrion Albert’s beating last September.   The premise of Obama’s hope and change message has somehow escaped the boundaries of Chicago.  The process has somehow been retarded by a collective feeling of hopelessness and despair.

Obama has forgotten about his Windy City  bottom bitch as he is  circling the globe making the rounds of with his lesser  geographic hoes.  Feeling up the electoral vote abundant tits and ass of Ohio and Pennsylvania.  Dining in France.  Ipod trading in Great Britain. Bowing to and fro and golfing under the Hawaiian sun.

Chicago got the shaft.

The second President Bush was famous for his long, extended trips to Crawford, but Obama in his first year has been to Scandinavia (two trips to Copenhagen, one to Oslo) as often as Chicago.

Shortly after the inauguration last January, the Obama family returned to their Kenwood home for a long Valentine’s weekend. The family hasn’t been back since, though the president returned to Chicago in June to speak at a medical conference and in July for a political fundraiser. On neither occasion did he stay the night.


To be sure, there is an upside in Chicago to having Obama stay away. Presidential motorcades often create monumental traffic tie-ups. The security cordon around the Obama home for that Valentine’s weekend visit extended for a three-block radius.

Jack Cella, general manager of the Seminary Co-op Bookstores around the University of Chicago campus where Obama once taught law, said that for much of last year, the neighborhood was crawling with reporters from around the world, as well as tourists and curiosity seekers. That activity has slowed in the winter months, and it’s not clear if it will resume with warmer weather.

Not long ago, it was common to see the Obamas wandering the neighborhood, but residents are by no means put out about them now staying away, Cella said.

“We’ve still got as much enthusiasm as ever,” he said. “There is still real admiration and affection for the first family. It would be nice to see him, but people realize he’s got an awful lot to [do].”

Of course he won’t stay the night silly Chicago.  You are a bottom bitch. Was he ever home when he was the senator from Illinois?  No, he played you.   Obama will see you again in 2011, when he needs you and you will still be there waiting for him with open arms and legs raising the dead so they can re-elect him.  Stop checking. There is no text message for you today. May as well go back to dusting those Barry bobble heads and using those CHICAGO 2016 poster to keep the fireplace going until your pager blows up.

Congratulations Chicago. You are now an etymological inspirator of bottom bitches to come.

Holy Fake Greek Temple Empire!!!: From Moonbat Man to Mr. Freeze January 27, 2010

Well my dear readers, we have survived a year of President Barack Obama. There were bad times and there were …bad times. Still, we have made it.  Things are looking up for conservatives actually.

I believe and tonight’s State of the Union speech will set the tone for Democrats and Republicans alike.

A year ago, the election of Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate as Ted Kennedy’s successor would have seemed unimaginable.  The liberals seemed poised to take over the political throne and dominate for at least eight years.  With, Democratic control of the both the house and senate, the Republicans were written off as the dead “party of NO”.   Beaten down by the party of “yes we can”.

I could see why voters would think that we were gone. We looked pretty insignificant.  Sarah Palin was sent packing back to Alaska with a complimetary world globe and a pre paid postage box from the RNC for those  clothes.  Meanwhile Michelle Obama sported her $500 Lanvin tennis shoes.  Nope, no hypocrisy there.

Our president wined and dined on Kobe steaks and BoBo got organic puppy chow as unemployment rates sky rocketed well beyond the 8% he promised us.

Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, underwear bombers, Fort Hood, and Gitmo detainees all filled the holiday stockings of racists behaving stupidly.

Now fast-forward to 2010 and it appears that the Greek temples of yes we can year, are somewhere off in the distance along with everything Barack Obama promised.

Republicans gave Democrats a you-should-have-known-better head shake.  They dilemma they face gets little sympathy from me.  On one level, what the hell were you guys thinking? On another level…what the hell were you guys thinking?

Obama now acknowledging  that he may be in trouble (though he will never admit it), clearly is now reverting to his  tofu mode of being whatever the people want him to be.  That is what you get when you buy an empty suit. You can fill it with whatever you want.  You want a far left ideologue, by golly you got it. You want him to slide to the right, he will do that too.

You want a tough on spending president gosh darn-it  Kool Aid drinking kids. BAM! BIFF!!! ZOWIE!!! Your wish is Obama’s command.  Whatever you wish for children, you can have it all and tonight we will see those Greek temples transform from the far left moonbat cave to spending freeze icicle palace and all

Will the Pink Vote Give Obama the Pink Slip In 2012? January 25, 2010

As conservatives hope against hope that gay marriage is never passed in their respective states of residence, Barack Obama, who won the “pink vote”  during the 2008 presidential election has done no better than a vegetable stricken with bystander effect when it comes to supporting gay rights.

Understandably, many gay voters deplore President Obama’s slow rate of progress in establishing gay rights and equality, particularly in the arenas of marriage and the military.

As early as February 2010, U.S.  Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen will testify at a congressional hearing on the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”  policy concerning gays serving openly in the military.

Don’t Ask Don ‘t Tell, challenges conservatives to come to terms with their idea of a strong military.  Who should and should not serve? Should gays and lesbians in the military  be allowed to speak out about their personal lives?  Can they marry on base like straight soldiers?

Currently, many gays have been discharged from service who were excellent soldiers and offered valuable skills such as weapons or language capabilities which should under “normal” circumstance render them indispensable.

Despite President Obama pledging to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,  the pink vote has noticed his annoying tendency to waffle as he has done with so many  other campaign promises  he made to liberals.

From this article in the Wall Street Journal:

Ask Obama About Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Gay voters are growing impatient for equality.

JANUARY 24, 2010

By RICHARD SOCARIDES

Current law does not require the services to discharge members based on sexual orientation per se. Rather, it looks to certain conduct to create a presumption for discharge. Thus, the Department of Defense has the authority to devise regulations that determine when such prohibited conduct has occurred. Defense could also interpret the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell statute more literally (as intended) and refuse to discharge a service member unless he willfully discloses that he is gay, which almost never happens. Finally, Defense could invoke current regulations to retain gay service members in the interest of national security. All are good options.

What is especially troubling, however, is Mr. Obama’s oversensitivity to a dwindling minority of bigots on this issue. Hundreds of military careers have been destroyed on his watch for no valid reason. The country has been deprived of the talents of these service members and has wasted millions of dollars on their training.

Many wonder when their president will show the same kind of concern for the constitutional rights of gay American service members as he has for enemy combatants held at Guantanamo Bay. Many wonder what the administration’s willingness to treat gay Americans as second-class citizens says to Uganda and other countries that are considering laws that would subject gays to imprisonment and even death.

Gay Americans have been among the president’s most ardent supporters. Their enthusiasm, and that of their families and friends, could be crucial in this year’s elections. The president’s action—or inaction—on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell will be noticed.

An increasingly frustrated bloc of gay voters—angry over marriage setbacks in California, Maine, New Jersey and New York and emboldened by Ted Olson’s and David Boies’s high-profile effort to declare unconstitutional laws that prohibit gay marriage—are growing impatient for equality. As Mr. Olson said in federal district court in San Francisco recently, discriminatory laws serve only to “label gay and lesbian persons as different, inferior, unequal and disfavored.”

Afrocity wonders, who exactly is this “minority of bigots” the WSJ opinion piece is referring to?

Minority…Hmmm. That is an interesting choice of words.

From San Francisco Gay Pride Week

We all know that there is a perception gap between Obama supporters and supporters of gay rights.  African Americans have been rather consistent in their lack of open armed embrace for the gay community.  An African America vote for Obama does not not necessarily translate into a pink vote. While the gay culture within the black community as been somewhat acknowledged with the advent of “Black Gay Pride Week” and an increase in openly gay black celebrities such as Wanda Sykes, the black gay movement still seems wholly autonomous.    There is cultural tension between African Americans, gays, and religion.   I believe this is the reason for Obama’s waffling on gay rights.  The black church ain’t having that and Obama knows it. To appease one group means offending another.  As progressive as Barack Obama professes to be, he still owes much of his election to African Americans who do not support gay rights.  This dilemma will continue to haunt the pink vote which has become the battered stepchild of the Obama administration.  Like the anti-war moonbats  such as Code Pink, Obama has slept with you, now it is time for gays and lesbians to put on their clothes and take the walk of shame bus back home.  I promise that Obama is very much so ever “into you”.  He will call you in oh, say 2011.

While I am not an actively involved in supporting gay rights, I am not opposed to gay marriage.  I just find it interesting that Republican moderates and conservatives divide over whether we should support gay rights out of fear of the Obama presidency pushing pro-gay legislation through, when in reality there is not much pushing from the left.  Where is the big fight for gays from Barack Obama?



I did not hear anything about fighting for gays during Obama’s speech in Ohio last week.

Still, don’t look for the pink vote to be back on the market anytime soon…And don’t look for Obama to mention one iota about gays or lesbians during his State of the Union address on hump day.

Afrocity Presents- Friday Late Night Fright Fest: Liberals From Outer Space January 22, 2010

Oh, how I love curling up on Friday nights with a big bowl of popcorn and my favorite horror films.

When it comes to politics, you never know what pork eating ghosts and tax cheat goblins are lurking about. Vampire moonbats, liberal creatures from outer space where no one can hear you scream.


There is not much to say about this recent short clip of MSNBC’s Keith Olberman, yes chief god of planet Moonbat, calling the Tea Party activists  “poor dumb manipulated bastards” on Thursday night’s Countdown.

Poor Keith, with the news of lower than bottom feeder tank fish ratings  and the Scott Brown win, this week has been awfully hard on the “Beaver”.

Meanwhile at KoolAid Space Mountain sector Ohio,  Major Barry, is back on Main Street whining to town hall attendees about right wingers who want to “scare the bugeezus out of you”.   He claims that the White House is “confining”  and  “It is not about me”.

Oh Barry, don’t be so modest. It has always been about YOU.

Finally we end our Friday night fright fest with the subject of the fiendish Dr. Arlen Specter (D-PA)

Dr. Spector of RINO-DINO colony

…instructing Michelle Bachman (R-MN) on the way he expects his bitches to act in his commanding presence.


Shiver!!!  Sorry liberals, after tonight’s viewings, I must sleep with the lights on and my thermostat at 72 degrees.

And this little Donkey Went “Wee wee wee” all the way home…

Scott Brown’s win last Tuesday night, represents the epitome of America’s continuing on again off again relationship with the Democratic Party.  The rise and fall of the DNC.

Conservative experts in the study of the rise and fall of the jackass find that root of the problem lies with the common human error of forgetfulness …

From this article at Townhall.com by conservative columnist  Ann Coulter:

Cartoon from Divervsity Lane

That Old Obama Magic is Back

by Ann Coulter

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Democrats are trying to write off Brown’s colossal victory as the standard seesawing of public sentiment that hits both Republicans and Democrats from time to time. As MSNBC’s Chris Matthews explained, it was just the voters saying “no” generally, but not to anything in particular.

Except when Republicans win political power, they hold onto it long enough to govern. The Democrats keep being smacked down by the voters immediately after being elected and revealing their heinous agenda.

As a result, for the past four decades, American politics has consisted of Republicans controlling Washington for eight to 14 years — either from the White House or Capitol Hill — thus allowing Americans to forget what it was they didn’t like about Democrats, whom they then carelessly vote back in. The Democrats immediately remind Americans what they didn’t like about Democrats, and their power is revoked at the voters’ first possible opportunity.

Obama has cut the remembering-what-we-don’t-like-about-Democrats stage of this process down from two to four years to about 10 months. Folks, I’m convinced that if we all work really hard, we can get it down to three months.

Four years of Jimmy Carter gave us two titanic Reagan landslides, peace and prosperity for eight blessed years — and even a third term for his feckless vice president, George H.W. Bush.

Two years of Bill Clinton gave us a historic Republican sweep of Congress, which killed the entire Clinton agenda (with the exception of partial-birth abortion and felony obstruction of justice) — and also gave us two terms for George W. Bush.

And now, merely one year of Obama and a Democratic Congress has given us the first Republican senator from Massachusetts in 31 years.

In other recent news, last November, New Jersey voters, who haven’t voted for a Republican for president since 1988, threw out their incumbent Democratic governor, Jon Corzine. In Virginia, which Obama carried by 6 points a year earlier, a religious-right Republican won the governor’s office by 17 points.

Sen. Ben Nelson, Democrat of Nebraska, won his last election in 2006 by 28 points — the largest margin for a Democratic Senate candidate in that state in a quarter-century.

Since voting for the Senate health care bill last Christmas, the once-bulletproof Sen. Nelson not only gets booed out of Omaha pizzerias, but he has also seen his job approval rating fall to 42 percent and his disapproval rating soar to 48 percent. (Meanwhile, the junior senator from Nebraska, Mike Johanns, who voted against the bill, has a job approval rating of 63 percent.)

The Democrats have no natural majority because they have no fundamental principles — at least none that they are willing to state out loud. They are like a drunken vagrant who emerges from the alley to cause havoc every few years. They are the perpetual toothache of American politics.

To be sure, the fact that 52 percent of Massachusetts voters are racist, sexist tea-baggers — i.e., voted for a Republican — means only that the Democrats just went from having the largest congressional majority in a generation to the second largest. But this was “Teddy Kennedy’s seat.” And it was in Massachusetts.

Now, no Democrat is safe.

But the country just got a lot safer.


Ann is right. Things are all grave (pun intended) for the Democrats because they just can’t help themselves without alienating every sane, pragmatic and logical being on the planet.

What goes up always comes down to their inevitable  loss due to their uncanny ability to disappoint people. I know this.

I used to sleep with the party of ass.  I was the wife, mother and child of my now sworn enemy.

During my time as a liberal, I spent many nights cursing at a seemingly endless chronology of television screens which broadcast harmless electoral college maps into my home.  Maps of America all lit up in Republican red. The color of Nancy Regan’s suit and hair and lipstick.  The color of rich people and success.

“Pretenders” is the word my mother used to describe people who were Republicans that were not rich.

“They (farmers) vote for Republicans because they want to pretend they are rich like other white people,” she said visibly disappointed with the results of the 1988 election.

She wanted Michael Dukakis.

She did not care that on the inside she was a Christian that believed all gays and lesbians were sinners.   It was the outside that mattered.  Wearing skin of the donkeys was always about the government doing what they could for her family as blacks.  Though never outspoken on the issue of abortion, mother was pro-life- belittling my aunt for having three abortions in under two years.  That same aunt would later describe  my deceased mother as the most racist woman she had ever met.

“That woman (my mother) was so racist,” my aunt said while discussing her sister during a time when we were feeling a bit guilty about her untimely passing. ” She hated Mexicans and–“

“Jews,”  I inserted flatly.

“Whenever your brother got in trouble in grammar school, if a black teacher did the scolding, it was okay but if the teacher was white…oh boy your momma would raise some hell up in that school…saying how they didn’t understand or know how to teach black kids…No body wanted to say nuthin’ to your brother cause they knew your momma would be up there at the school like–“

“It was embarrassing,”  I said.  Young Afrocity had also been a  recipient of mother’s undying protection against racist teachers.  “She would do the same at my school.  One teacher treated me like I had leprosy after one of mom’s visits. She cursed him out in front of the PTA…Funny how she could do that without one moment’s thought but when it came to getting a job to feed me…well that was another story.”

“Boy she hated Mexicans when she was in Texas,” my aunt went fast forward to my mother’s last years in Houston.

“Yes, she did,” I nodded.

“She wanted America to only have real Americans, no migrants, especially Mexicans…’Whey does this country help foreigners like those Chinese and Mexicans better than they treat their own black peoples who worked as slaves.’  your momma would say…America needs to help Americans.”

We were both silent. This conversation was deep cleansing for both of us.

“Yes, she loved America,” I said. “Perhaps she would have been a Republican, had she not been a black woman,”  I laughed loudly, though it still did not shake my feeling of loss.

The loss of seeing her as a whole woman with a job and goals beyond waiting for a monthly welfare check from Uncle Sam.

I will always wonder.

Martha My Dear: Democrats Have Plenty Of Rollover Minutes January 20, 2010


Martha My Dear

by

The Beatles

Martha my dear though I spend my days in conversation
Please
Remember me Martha my love
Don’t forget me Martha my dear

Hold your head up you silly girl look what you’ve done
When you find yourself in the thick of it
Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you
Silly Girl.

Take a good look around you
Take a good look you’re bound to see
That you and me were meant to be for each other
Silly girl.

Hold your hand out you silly girl see what you’ve done
When you find yourself in the thick of it
Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you
Silly girl.

Martha my dear you have always been my inspiration
Please
Be good to me Martha my love
Don’t forget me Martha my dear.

After Martha Coakley’s loss to the Republican, Scott Brown in the Massachusetts race for Ted Kennedy’s vacant senate seat, in typical Democrat jackass fashion, the Obama bus rolls over on the poor woman and the “under the bus” body count rises.

Democrats point fingers after stunning loss

From Ed Hornick and Kristi Keck, CNN

January 20, 2010

Boston, Massachusetts (CNN) Even before the polls closed on Tuesday night, Democrats were distancing themselves from Democrat Martha Coakley and blaming her lackluster campaign for her stunning loss in the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts.

A top adviser to President Obama rejected assertions that Tuesday’s vote was a referendum on the president or Democratic policies and instead took a shot at Coakley: “Campaigns and candidates matter.”

Wow!!! Coakley is swept under the bus like a tumbleweed with not a moment to spare. Zapped up in the air like Alfre Woodard in that  2004 Julianne Moore movie The Forgotten:

I am sure the Democrats love rolling the bus over Coakley even more because she is a woman.They are good at blaming the ladies. Women are “Blame it all on George Bush” of the DNC world you know.  Obamabots are looking like Yoda yelling “bad apple she is.”

Barry is 0 for 4 when it comes to saving the day for his party and homeboys in Chicago.

The Olympics- blame it on Rio

Massachusetts- Blame it on Martha

Not everyone is falling for it:

It’s Not Just About Coakley, Stupid

By Christopher Coffey

January 19, 2010

FOXNews.com

Unfortunately for Democrats, blame for the disastrous Massachusetts Senate race does not rest entirely with candidate Martha Coakley. Responsibility also rests with her party.

Many will be inclined to blame Martha Coakley exclusively should she lose the Senate race in the Bay State. Some will rush to call the election an “aberration” caused by an inferior candidate.
Unfortunately for Democrats, blame for this Senate race does not rest entirely with Coakley. Responsibility also rests with her party.

The Democrats have developed a tin ear for politics, this coming only a year after Barack Obama ran one of the more brilliant campaigns in history. More than ever, Democrats are determined to pass a health care reform bill notwithstanding public sentiment.

According to the recent Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll, only 12% of those surveyed want President Obama to focus his attention on health care. Close to half of those questioned want him to concentrate on the economy. When it comes to Massachusetts, a Rasmussen poll revealed limited faith in the ability of tax and spend increases to improve the economy. And bear in mind that Democrat’s plans for health care reform will increase both spending and taxes.

The Democrats appear to be ignoring the polls. Of late, they are focusing almost exclusively on health care at the expense of supporting sound economic policy. Even now, people are debating the effect this election will have on health care reform. No one is discussing the effect the Massachusetts election will have on economic policy.

It won’t help Democrats to argue that this election is about local and not national issues. If Coakley loses on Tuesday, it means that the power of President Obama’s personality and agenda may not extend beyond the gates of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Voters in Massachusetts may like President Obama, but maybe not enough to put his candidate in the Senate, and not enough to save his domestic priority.”

Speaking of women, I wanted to add that I have heard a lot of untruths of late about women and Massachusetts concerning political offices.  In particular, there was a reporter, I think on MSNBC or CNN who said that Massachusetts has never had a female governor.  That is not so.

Former Gov. Jane Swift (R-MA) unveiling her official portrait at the Massachusetts State Senate Chamber

From Wikipedia:

Jane Maria Swift (born February 24, 1965) is an American politician and the former Republican Governor of Massachusetts.  She is the only woman to hold that position, serving from April 2001 to January 2003. At the time she became acting governor, Swift was the youngest person in the country to hold the position of governor or acting governor. In 1990, at the age of 25, she was the youngest woman ever elected to the Massachusetts Senate.

Get it straight liberals.

I caught the mistake because I attended graduate school in Massachusetts and during that time Jane Swift was my governor.  I believe that she was also the first governor to give birth while in office and campaign for lieutenant governor while pregnant.

Collective amnesia seems to over come our dear Democrat friends when it comes to conservative women in politics. Often I find that liberal women will say that a woman has never held a political office when in fact a woman has held the office…she was just inconveniently a Republican.  Feminist “forget” to include Republican or conservative women in their  romantic ideas of women controlling high offices in American or international government. Sarah Palin, Jane Swift, Margaret Thatcher. Need I say more?

Incidentally, had I been a Massachusetts resident, I would have voted for Scott Brown.  I vote for people, issues and values. Not gender, sexual orientation or race.  Like myself, Scott Brown is a pro-choice Republican and against Obamacare.  The choice would have been simple for me to make.

And The Winner Is …..Scott Brown!!!!!!! January 19, 2010

He won !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Massachusetts.  He won by 7 points. I suppose that Sunday visit to Boston from Barry did not help much after all. I guess the people of Massachusetts are just not that into you or your tax and spend agenda.

It also seems that the fine folks at the Boston Globe will donate 1,000,000 lbs of newspaper to a village of crazy cat hoarders. Makes for good litter material. See you didn’t need that spellchecker!!!
