Afrocity Too Busy and Stupid for Words March 2, 2010

Folks, I am in a bit of a rush with moving and work.  I am too busy and stupid for words.

I have a lot on my mind about the ramming of this national healthcare reform initiative.  According to the Democrats, the public is not equipped to understand this “complex issue”.

"Too Stupid For Words" cartoon by Stilton Jarlsberg of Hope n' Change Cartoons.com

I understand that there is a need for improved heathcare among the uninsured as well as those of us like myself, who do have insurance.  There is nothing more I hate than going to the doctor only to receive a pat on the head and a co-pay bill for $25.   I also understand that given the current state of out economy, I would like the Obama administration to focus job creation and not healthcare.  There really are more important things going on out there.  Families are struggling and if you ask Harry Reid (D-NV) , unemployed men are killing people.


On the plus side, at least Senator Reid did not label the angry unemployed men as conservative wingnuts just aching to kill a black man because they are out of work and angry at minorities stealing their jobs.  Speaking of losing jobs, Harry may be in the political graveyard looking for work himself.  It is a little known fact that Harry is a former boxer.

From I own the world

Watch out Mrs. Reid.

So let’s get these guys some jobs before we have a national crisis on our hands. People need to afford to shop at Whole Foods, donate to the Obama 2012 campaign and buy iPhones.  We gotta get this country hoping and changing again!

Sunday Soliloquy: “Better to starve free than be a fat slave” January 10, 2010

In keeping with Senator Harry Reid’s “unfortunate comment”  concerning Barack Obama… I would like to begin my Sunday Soliloquy by saying – tis I, Afrocity, your favorite medium skin toned articulate Negro conservative blogger.

I am just keeping things real here. After all I do possess a masters degree and that qualifies me as a well spoken Negro. My conservative acquaintances say that to me all of the time you know. Not true. The only time I have been labeled as articulate has been by a liberal who was praising me for doing what all people should do–speaking well.  And it is good to know that Harry Reid believes that our president is a well spoken Negro- an articulate boy.

From this article in the Chicago Tribune:

Obama accepts Reid’s apology for ‘unfortunate comment,’ says ‘the book is closed’ on matter

Associated Press Writer

January 10, 2010

WASHINGTON (AP)Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid apologized on Saturday for saying the race of Barack Obama — whom he described as a “light skinned” African-American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one” — would help rather than hurt his eventual presidential bid.

Obama quickly accepted, saying “As far as I am concerned, the book is closed.” Reid, facing a tough re-election bid this year, spent the day telephoning civil rights leaders and fellow Democrats in hopes of mitigating the political damage.

The revelations about Reid’s 2008 comments were included in the book “Game Change” by Time Magazine’s Mark Halperin and New York magazine’s John Heilemann. The behind-the-scenes look at the 2008 campaign that elevated Obama to the White House is based on the writers’ interviews with more than 200 sources, most of whom were granted anonymity and thus much of the material could not be immediately corroborated.

The Democrats do so much for women and minorities that we decided that the male restrooms at the next DNC convention should display a suitable decor.

Of course, Obama accepted Senator Reid’s apology.  Dirty Harry could never be a racist. Harry was not “acting stupidly”.  Harry does not deserve a  Beer Summit . Harry was the only guy to call the GOP out on their slavery health care plan. Harry is a Democrat so he must love black people.

Ah, the Democratic Party. Embellished with the hues and textures of the American multi-racial landscape. Historic condemners of the institution known as slavery…NOT…That was actually the Republicans. Ah, who cares? That was then this is now.  Let’s not dwell on  the Democrats and their  past transgressions against African Americans.  So what if the Klu Klux Klan’s founding members were firmly rooted in the Democratic Party and Woodrow Wilson was one of  the most racist presidents ever. That is all erased and forgiven now.

There is a 2010 DNC special on smoked black butt. Organic and Corn Fed. No Hormones used. Killed playing classical music in the background.

The Democrats embrace such underprivileged forms as women and blacks, gays and transgendered.  A regular Mother Jones personified by introducing civil rights legislation during the 1950’s and 60’s …Well that is not exactly true.

From this post on Black and Right.com

“Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That’s why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws… On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight.”

Picturesque are the living memories of liberal acceptance. Democrats skipping hand and hand through the bohemian streets of New York’s Upper Westside, spitting obscenities at conservative Palin supporters marching through.

Peace and love and happiness for all. I thank God …ooops I mean Allah for the Democrats who transformed the slave shipwrecked lives of my people. They think so much of us.

I thank Senator Reid for challenging the standard interpretation of a token. Before learning of his comments about light-skinned Barack Obama, we African American conservatives believed that only Republicans of color would benefit from being labeled as partisan tokens and Uncle Tom’s. It is good to see that Democrats believe in equal opportunity tokenism too. I knew they would. With remarkable clarity, Democrats continue to show redneck Republican bigots how elite liberal culture can institute real “hope and change”.

What a relief that the fight against closeted tokenism is now moving more or less from the right to the left side of the political spectrum. And of course as demonstrated by this comment from a Chicago Tribune reader, most liberals agree:

I read the remarks twice and cannot understand why the apology was necessary. There was nothing untruthful or deragatory in his remarks. He was making a political assessment of the president’s description and traits in the context of image as a candidate – no ethnic slurs or slang names. “

“I am tired of having to tiptoe around black people.

There you have it. Thanks to liberals we are officially in the midst of “post-racial America”.

Ugly Betsy Does Obamalot: One Great Shill After Another May 20, 2009

The characteristic idiocracy of the the Obama White House we have come to know so well continues. I was perusing the Drudge Report and happened upon more embarrassing news from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid courtesy of this article at Beitbart.com:

Reid joins Biden, Pelosi in misstatements
May 19, 2009
By LAURIE KELLMAN
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid became the latest Democrat to stray into rhetorical trouble Tuesday, botching statements on three subjects in one news conference—including the fragile health of the chamber’s most senior members.

The Nevada Democrat reported that one of them, Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., was absent because he was receiving a new round of treatment for his brain cancer. Asked if the cancer was in remission, Reid replied, “As far as I know, it is, yes.”

Kennedy’s office refused to confirm Reid’s comments or make any statement in response, the public silence a classic Washington disavowal.

Reid was then asked about Sen. Robert C. Byrd, at 91 the longest-serving senator in history, who was hospitalized over the weekend for an infection. Reid reported that Byrd was to be released from the hospital Tuesday or perhaps later in the week.

Not exactly.

“Senator Byrd is improving,” responded his spokesman, Jesse Jacobs. “But his doctors, in consultation with his family, have not yet determined when he will be released.”

Reid also mangled his party’s position on the congressional news of the day, that Senate Democrats would join their House counterparts in withholding the money President Barack Obama needs to close the Guantanamo Bay prison until Obama comes up with a plan for relocating its prisoners.

But Reid went further than saying he wanted to see a plan for the money before Congress approves it. “We will never allow terrorists to be released into the United States,” he said.

No one, of course, was talking about releasing terrorism suspects among the American populace. Imprisoning them, perhaps, but not releasing them.

“Part of what we don’t want is them be put in prisons in the United States,” Reid clarified but digging himself into a bigger hole by departing significantly from some of his colleagues and administration officials. “We don’t want them around the United States.”

Did the administration put Democrats in an awkward position, asking for the money before setting out how it would be spent?

“Not at all,” said Reid.

“Yes,” his deputy, Dick Durbin (D-IL) replied to the same question.

Meanwhile, RINO turned DINO Senator Arlen Specter (D-PA) is now defending House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her recent accusations against the CIA. Specter paints the CIA as historical chamber of secrets when it comes to their relationship with Congress.

The Hill
Specter defends Pelosi, questions CIA’s honesty
By Reid Wilson
Posted: 05/20/09

Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) took the opportunity Wednesday to defend House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who has come under fire in recent weeks over a controversy surrounding when she was told of the use of enhanced interrogation techniques being used by the CIA.

“The CIA has a very bad record when it comes to — I was about to say ‘candid’; that’s too mild — to honesty,” Specter, a former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a lunch address to the American Law Institute. He cited misleading information about the agency’s involvement in mining harbors in Nicaragua and the Iran-Contra affair.

“Director [Leon] Panetta says the agency does not make it a habit to misinform Congress. I believe that is true. It is not the policy of the Central Intelligence Agency to misinform Congress,” Specter said. “But that doesn’t mean that they’re all giving out the information.”

Because of leaks that have come from Congress, Specter said, he understands the agency’s hesitancy to disclose all its information.

“The current controversy involving Speaker Pelosi and the CIA is very unfortunate, in my opinion, because it politicizes the issue and it takes away attention from … how does the Congress get accurate information from the CIA?” Specter said. “For political gain, people are making headlines.”

Notice Specter’s last sentence there: “For political gain, people are making headlines.” Interesting how people can’t look in the mirror and see their own reflection. I know many Republicans who are upset with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for being a “maverick” or RINO. However, McCain has never switched political parties two times. He has always been a Republican. Someone should tell Arlen Specter that politicians who live in glass White Houses should not throw stones at the CIA.

These news stories tell us much that is sadly pathetic and uncomfortably comical about Obamalot. There are dimensions of a farce in the making as revealed in recent domestic gaffes and international blow backs which make me feel more than a tad uneasy and fearful. While it is clear that President Obama aspires to rehabilitate the image of the US in foreign eyes by giving “ugly Betsy Ross” an extreme makeover, one cannot help but wonder if the last 100-plus days of cumulative mishaps on Obama’s watch may subject America’s “vulnerable” reputation to additional damage rather than repair it. Apart from its obvious lack of leadership, all signs point to more difficulties facing the Obama White House. Moreover, President Obama neglects to articulate his vision for our country beyond tired 2008 campaign rhetoric. Obama is well liked, people want him to do well. He shows a great deal of mass appeal and has the ability to inspire. My issue with Obama is that there is nothing much underneath it all. Really, I could not care less about the man. I want my country to do well and succeed. Great, he can pack a frigid football stadium full of people in a matter of moments. But there is something intangible about the man which translates into a lack of critical engagement with the issues facing our nation.

My liberal acquaintances argue that it is too soon to judge Obama and I am not giving him a chance. I argue that they are not giving America a chance. We really deserved better than this. On this point, Sean Hannity interviewed British Parliament member Daniel Hannan last night. Watch Hannan’s reluctance to criticize President Obama but you can tell he wants to. During the course of the interview, it seems that the two countries not only share a common past but an uncertain future as well.
