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

Political Weight Watchers: The GOP’s Liquid Detox Diet September 15, 2010

Through numerous observations, I am continually reminded of the Democratic Party’s resistance to self-examination.  So it was not surprising to see the liberal media outlets ignoring the obviously anemic future of their own party and pressing their noses against the window of the Republican Party during last night’s mega primary races.

With overzealous  determination, liberals were all over Christine O’Donnell’s victory in the Delaware Republican Primary over 40 year GOP veteran Mike Castle.  Steeped in controversy and an impetus for debate within the GOP, O’Donnell is a Tea Party candidate, – a “real conservative” so to speak –backed by Sarah Palin.   Worthy of eliciting overload in any Republican demise lover’s salivary glands,  O’Donnell’s win was comprehensible to liberals as a serious rupture in the GOP.  You should have seen how many anti-Republican sites ran this clip of Karl Rove and Sean Hannity debating the O’Donnell win.

(Afrocity with a whip and lion tamer’s chair) Down, jackasses, down…  But yo know,  in this case who could blame the Democrats?  If my political party sucked and our president was as ineffective as Barack Obama,  I would watch someone else on TV too.   Currently, I am sure that if you are a Democrat the GOP is more exciting than watching a slow sinking ship full of Obamabots in denial- particularly if you are actually on the ship.

So go ahead Democrats! Enjoy the show liberals, pull up a beanbag and take a load off.  Such drama is good for the political thought lovers soul and should teach our liberal audience a few lessons about Republicans.  Our history that Democrats and possibly many Republicans have seemed to forgotten.

Lessons that invalidates any stereotypes which demonizes Republicans as religiously fanatical homophobic racists who hate helping the impoverished.  When it comes the party diversity, the Democrats claims lie in race, ethnicity, gender or  sexual orientation.  Republicans on the other hand seek to find an appropriate balance of diversity within levels of conservatism.  We are all Americans regardless of our underlying identities.   We are not colors or sexual preferences.

Liberals wrongly view conservatives as a monolith.

We all must sleep with Bibles under our pillows and when the linen cases come off, they double as headgear for our KKK meetings.   Not so.  The logic of this meme is not intuitive or apparent except that it serves as a tool for the left to marginalize conservatives much like they marginalize identity groups within their own party.  You are black therefore you must need us.  While looking at the video above,  I laughed at some of the comments from liberals such as this one:

If teabaggers are so pro-minority, why aren’t they going into the inner-cities and making a push to register minority voters? Short answer, they’re scared to death of minority voters and are doing all they can to re-energize white, christian, conservative voters. If a couple minority voters (who may or not be plants) happen to wonder into their camp, of course they’ll welcome them, as long as they don’t move in next door or marry their daughters.

Now who is the cloistered racist one?  My father resides in Chicago’s “inner-city”  ummm, somehow he managed to register himself to vote like many “minorities”  without the help of ACORN. But here again is prevailing liberal thought that Republicans are all anti-minority.  We are all  for the rich, sheltered in our timeshares and far, far, far right with no middle class.  The liberal media perpetuates such myths and President Obama loves to demonstrate that “B” is for bashing and blaming and Boehner:

Ah, class warfare… the staple diet of liberals.  But this is all changing as things heats up in the countdown to November.   The Republican Party is struggling to get the right brew and  has been on a serious liquid detox diet.

Now everyone hates to diets especially detox diets.  I am on one myself.   No sugar, no salt…green tea, soy milk,  flax seed, omega 3, – all stuff that is good for me….and I hate it but I have to do what’s best for my body and not my taste buds. The Republican Party is going through the same thing — a change for the better.

Why do we diet?  because we want to see our old, younger selves again whether we were skinnier, or more active, more mentally alert.  The Republican Party had become weighted down with  junk in it’s  collective truck. Time to purge some floaters.

No question, the Delaware primary race was ugly.  One could point out occasional traces of sexism against Christine O’Donnell but I would say that this race was not about man against woman.  It was about the establishment versus grassroots true conservationism or the politician versus the common man- correction common woman.  In addition to campaign bludgeoning which is considered standard fare for any political competition this race harbored a nastier element not normally witnessed in Republican primaries.   One candidate was accused of being gay while another‘s finances were trotted out to reveal an IRS tax lien and pending mortgage foreclosure.  In defense of O’Donnell, there are a lot of people facing home foreclosure nowadays so perhaps it was not too smart of Mike Castle to expose O’Donnell’s financial situation as  a weakness.  Nevertheless, it was elephant eat elephant, or should I say elephant eat RINO in Delaware.

Much of the advice from Tea Partiers went unheard by the GOP establishment- especially the RINO virus carriers. Payback is not tea and sympathy…It’s a bitch.

Tea Party Claims Big Win

Upstart Candidate Beats GOP-Backed Congressman in Delaware Senate Primary

By PETER WALLSTEN And NEIL KING JR.

September 15, 2010

Long-shot U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell of Delaware rode tea-party momentum Tuesday to the most unexpected upset of a tumultuous political year, soundly defeating Republican Party fixture Mike Castle in a bruising primary.

The results showed again that conservative voters, many of them angry at federal spending by both parties and energized by the tea-party movement, have become mobilized even in one of the nation’s most Democratic-leaning states…

The Delaware results were widely viewed as the most meaningful of the day. With all precincts reporting, Ms. O’Donnell had 53.1% of the vote to Mr. Castle’s 46.9%.

Mr. Castle, a sitting congressman, is one of the most liberal Republicans in the House.

So keep on rubber necking Democrats. My cautionary note to you involves the dangers of not keeping your eyes on the road especially when your vision is impaired with campaign politics and your ears are deaf to public opinion.  watch where you are going—I think you passed up the town of “victory”  about 18 months back.

Thursday Stitch n’ Bitch: The Declaration of Independents January 14, 2010

Official Tea Party Movement Symbol

The year 2010 is an anxious time for all, especially Republicans and conservatives. Obama is breaking promises, and there will be plenty of angry folks this year seeking “hopenchange” again but not in the form of a light skinned guy named Barry.   Like many Republicans I am looking forward to kicking some donkey butt in the 2010 elections.  Or at least I thought I was like many Republicans or conservatives or independents…Which is it?  Anyway after a long exchange on my Facebook page with some Tea Party Patriots, I was told that I am an uninformed Republican voter. Who was duped by the Democrats once and now I am being duped by Republicans.  “Third Party is the only way to go”, they said.

And it’s not going to happen either! The elites and the radicals have highjacked our country and they WILL NOT give it back by us dumb ass SHEOPLE voting in a bunch of corrupt REPUBLICANS!”…But if a good candidate were to decide to run on a 3rd party ticket, I would vote for him or her over the other two even if he/she lost and all of you gave me shit over it. I voted for Perot 2x, but not a 3rd party since because there was no strong runner. WE NEED NEW BLOOD! A WASHINGTON OUTSIDER! THAT ISN’T BOUGHT OR FINANCED BY ANYONE BUT THE PEOPLE!”

“I’m going to be the odd man out here. We have a Marxist because of the 2 party system as it currently operates. Nobody can deny it. The GOP is ‘almost ‘ as corrupt as the Democrats.And if the polls hold on the question of a “Tea Party” having a candidate in a three way race, the TP is smoking the GOP. So just who is splitting the vote. AS for… See More me I am not voting for Republicans. I may vote for a conservative who is a Republican- maybe.”

I just lost all respect for Palin. F*ck the two party system! It sucks major ass! Parties are un-American. We’re not supposed to have them. Parties are for democracies. We’re not a democracy. We’re a republic. Parties have no place in republics. In a republic, politicians are supposed to be non-partisan aka independent. Republicans and Democrats are BOTH taking us down the wrong path. I only align myself with the Constitution!”

Afrocity is not so sure about a third party movement...even if it were a Tea Party

Yes, Obama failed many particularly those who voted for him.

Bush failed many as well. Let’s not lie about that granted it is not fair for the liberals to continue to use “Bush’s fault” as an excuse for everything under the sun.

But does this all mean that we adopt a third party?Because for the last 9 years we have elected flawed leaders  to our nation’s highest office?

The independents seem to think so.

First let’s take a look at what Obama promised and did not deliver. Does it have more to do with him and his character than the Democratic Party in itself? The answer is yes and no. The Democrats chose the wrong nominee as the Republicans did in 2000.  Every party is capable of the bait and switch described by Karl Rove in this article in the Wall Street Journal:

JANUARY 13, 2010,

The President’s Bait-and-Switch Operation

Which campaign promises has he kept?

By Karl Rove

“Americans learned last year that President Obama discards campaign promises like most people discard used Kleenex. Among the pledges he cast aside were reducing the deficit, reining in federal spending, not allowing lobbyists to work in his administration, increasing taxes only on those who make more than $250,000, and opposing “government-run health care” because it is “extreme.”
This year, Mr. Obama is picking up where he left off.
Consider presidential signing statements. Since Andrew Jackson, presidents of both parties have told Congress that while they are signing a bill into law, they intend to ignore specific provisions because they involve unconstitutional restrictions on the executive branch or are otherwise problematic.

A president’s power to do this springs from his oath of office, through which each new chief executive promises to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.”
Because of Washington’s hyperpartisan atmosphere, President George W. Bush drew heated criticism from Democrats for his signing statements. Among his toughest critics was Barack Obama, who in a questionnaire for the Boston Globe in 2007 accused Mr. Bush of “clear abuse” in using signing statements “to avoid enforcing certain provisions . . . the President does not like.” He promised not to use signing statements to “nullify or undermine congressional instructions as enacted into law.”
Yet Mr. Obama started issuing signing statements shortly after taking office. Democratic Reps. Barney Frank and David Obey called him out on it in a letter to the White House complaining that they were “chagrined” that Mr. Obama was issuing signing statements.
Recently, the Obama administration admitted that after receiving the letter from Messrs. Frank and Obey, it stopped the practice. But the president still has aides examine each bill to identify provisions the administration will disregard. It’s just that Team Obama isn’t telling Congress which provisions it is ignoring. It’s right for him to defend the office of the presidency. The problem is that he is doing it in a way that violates his own standards of transparency and accountability.

It was always puzzling to me as to why any logical person would believe anything that oozed from Barack Obama’s mouth.  His previous record and experience never proved anything beyond his reputation for securing one position and shortly thereafter  running for another position of higher profile before accomplishing anything of real importance. Liberals often love to brand Sarah Palin as a quitter because she resigned as Alaska’s governor before her term was finished.  No one recalls that Obama was only the Senator of Illinois for a short time before he ran for POTUS.  While a valid argument could be waged that Obama’s actions do not exactly constitute quitting , still closer attention should be paid to the motives behind his leaving his Illinois senate seat after accomplishing nothing.  Sarah left office to unburden the people of Alaska with a lame duck and ever growing law suits against the state by greedy mean-spirits and opportunists.  Obama ran for president because…. Oh I forgot, Michelle Obama supplied us with that answer:

“Barack is one of the smartest people you will ever encounter who will deign to enter this messy thing called politics.”

According to Webster, the definition of deign is: condescend: do something that one considers to be below one’s dignity.  Oh gee thanks Barry.  You see we should be thankful that  God sent Barack Obama to us. Now we can be delivered unto the Promised Land. That was Obama’s motive, to give us the gift of his wisdom. To get in our faces.

"Back of Bus" cartoon by Erin Bonsteel from "American Thinker"

Karl Rove continues:

“This hypocrisy has not gotten much attention. But another act of duplicity has. During his campaign, Mr. Obama pledged that any negotiations on health-care legislation would be broadcast on C-SPAN, “so the American people can see what the choices are,” and not conducted behind closed doors. “Such public negotiations,” he said, were “the antidote” to “overcoming the special interests and the lobbyists who . . . will resist anything that we try to do.”

Internet publisher Andrew Breitbart collected videotape of Mr. Obama making the same promise eight different times in 2007 and 2008—evidence that this was not a hasty or ill-considered pledge. It was supposed to epitomize the “change” that was at the core of the Obama campaign.

Now, however, the final negotiations on health-care reform are being conducted behind closed doors and there’s no formal legislative conference between the House and Senate, which would guarantee Republicans at least a few seats at the table. This bill is not only being written in secrecy, it is being written by an anonymous group of Democrats. We can therefore throw Mr. Obama’s commitment to bipartisanship onto his mountain of broken promises…”

Here is the video by Breitbart that Karl Rove alludes to:

I am less surprised by the die hard liberals who fell for Obama’s crap than I am by voters who characterize themselves as “independents”.

In 2008,  I helplessly watched as my independent voter friends emerged one by one from Obamabot pods covered in a Kool Aid purple slimy substance.  There are some pretty intelligent thinkers among the independent voting block. Their modes of inquiry into the lives of and motives of presidential candidates are legendary.

So why did they fall for Barack Obama?

And why exactly should Afrocity follow them to the promised tea party land?

I want no misunderstanding here. I admire those who actively participate in the Tea Party Movement. Voices need to be heard. I am amused by it. I love the patriotism that Americans are displaying. Am I politically or emotionally committed to the movement…No.  I am not exactly sure if we need a third party.  I saw what Ralph Nader did for the 2000 presidential election.  In theory,  a multi-party system is very American. George Washington hated political parties. In reality, they can also screw up some really great elections and in 2012, I do not want our country to end up with a second term for Barack Obama. Thus I do not quite understand why some anti-Obama voters would want to support third party candidates during the 2010 and 2012 elections. Aren’t we playing right into the liberals hands?

Conservatives Gather in Capital

Critics of Obama Policies, Energized by Town-Hall Meetings, Will March Saturday

By
MICHAEL M. PHILLIPS and NAFTALI BENDAVID

Conservative activists from around the country are gathering in Washington on Saturday, seeking to continue their momentum in shaping the national debate on everything from health care to White House staffing.

The demonstrators, who plan to march up Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol, are drawing their passion not from Bush-era fights over terrorism or gay marriage, but rather from Reagan-era debates over big government programs. The event comes on the heels of antitax events, dubbed tea parties, in April, and a series of congressional town-hall meetings nationwide last month that elicited angry criticism of health-care proposals favored by President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies.

“I can’t figure out to save me what [Mr. Obama and the Democrats] are trying to accomplish, unless they want socialism,” said

From American Thinker

From American Thinker

73-year-old Joseph Wright, a retired paper-mill worker. Mr. Wright rode from Tallahassee, Fla., to Washington this week on one of the many chartered buses bringing in demonstrators from states as far-flung as Massachusetts and Arkansas.

Saturday’s rally comes just a few months after Mr. Obama’s victory seemed to have left the conservative movement in disarray. But in recent weeks, critics of the administration’s programs and spending have succeeded in putting Mr. Obama on the defensive, threatening his health-care drive, prompting parents to boycott a routine presidential speech to schoolchildren and forcing the resignation of a White House adviser with a left-leaning past.

While the movement has gotten considerable attention, it is unclear just how broad it is. Both conservatives and liberals Friday tried to manage expectations, hoping to claim a surprisingly high or low turnout after the event.

White House officials on Friday professed to know nothing of the planned demonstrations. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs queried reporters about the planners and their issues. “I don’t know who the group is,” he said with a shrug.

Other Democrats suggested the protesters are embittered, fringe conservatives fueled by radio and TV talk-show hosts. “There’s a lot of energy, but it’s negative energy,” said Democratic strategist John Lapp. “At the end of the day, Republicans are left with bomb-throwing, screaming, frothing and a lot of opposition.”

suessWe will see how long after the conservative demonstrations today it will take before the mainstream media points out all of the racist signage that says things like “Read the Bill”, ‘Don’t Thread On Me” , “Just Say No To Obamacare”. Who will get called a tea bagger this time around? How many guns will they find?

If any of my readers are lucky enough to attend the rally, please share your stories with us.

Meanwhile in case anyone missed it last night, Glenn Beck gave an awesome testimony about the aftermath of 9/11. He cried.

The “Black Tea Parties” April 15, 2009

We have a New King George!!!

We have a New King George!!!

The big day is finally here TEA PARTY DAY!!!!! I love tea because I can’t have coffee due to the caffeine (you don’t want to see me after a can of cola, chocolate, coffee flavored ice cream. I won’t shut up). I also love tea parties and would have them as a child with my cat “Taco”. I would dress her up in doll clothes. Taco was not declawed but she was very patient with child Afrocity putting those frilly dresses on over her paws. I would serve milk in the teacup and a dollop of tuna fish on the saucer. I certainly knew how to keep my guests happy.

Herbal teas like chamomile, or white tea are my favorites but when it comes to tea parties we have seen green tea parties.
