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

Barack Obama and his Disease NOT to Please March 18, 2010

When Bret Baier of FOX NEWS stepped into President Barack Obama’s parlor for a lengthy interview yesterday , all arrogance and subterfuge broke out from the mouths of the two-faced chosen one.

When it comes to getting to the heart of the matter with the head of our nation, there are no logical underpinnings. Only a smarmy and disturbingly dismissive air  that is and will always be the true nature of Obama.   There is no sense of openness with this guy. The house is full of glass –breakable objects with “DO NOT TOUCH” signs –such as his ego.  Look at it, admire it, but don’t you dare touch it or you may get shocked.   Because his clenched lipped, wide toothy smile is an extension of his fake demeanor, I am not quite certain how much forced effort he expends per appearance to actually endear himself to the public.

I will bet anyone a tall frothy mug of root beer that Obama ran to some back room and punched some poor unsuspecting well wallpapered White House wall  after his FOX interview.

Bravo to Bret Baier, for not falling for the ol’ Obama long drawn out response trick. Bravo to FOX NEWS for not rolling over and playing dead like nearly every other media outlet known to man.

I love the way Obama is dismissive of Bret’s email examples.  Emails from ACTUAL PEOPLE.  Not his Kool AID punch drunk adoring fans who are planted like acorns at town hall meetings.

So reminiscent of Obama’s “I HAVE A BRACELET TOO” moment during a 2008 presidential debate.

Has anyone ever told you that you are too nice?  That you are “a pleaser” ?  You care too much about what others think?   For every disease there is its evil twin.  The twin of “the disease to please” is named Barack Obama.

Obama’s lack of concern for Americans is not hidden in some deep dank, dark place beneath the surface… It is on the surface.

There is no “at first sight he seems compassionate” .    At least for smart voters like myself there wasn’t

Any intelligent, discerning voter can see that it is in Obama’s DNA not to please.  There is something more important in his life than you and that’s HIM.  Make no mistake that his inner house is full of glass. His brain has skylights and trap doors, no expression of true warmth and held together with steel and concrete beams, 40 tons of granite.

Ultimately this man is a with-holder.  While voters were douching their minds with  hope n’ change, Obama was cocooning his ego in the love bath.

Whatever originally attracted anyone to vote for Obama is beyond me.  His ego is his driving force, not the will of the people.   There is no well being center oasis in the desert.  Any attempt to reason with him will cause the “Uh, UH” responses and the dreaded “LOOK”.   Obama wants to keep things as fluidly slick and deceptive as possible.  When you touch the glass, it breaks and will cut you.

Hopefully in 2012 what felt so right to voters in 2008, will feel so wrong.  Whether any of his behavior and broken promises inspire his supporters to CHANGE and hope for something better, is entirely up to them.

People like me are just the messengers of the obvious message.

Liberal Hypocrisy Files: Even Rednecks Are Not This Creative February 26, 2010

From the screenplay The Blair Witch Project

Michael Williams: [sees dozens of stick-men hanging from trees] No redneck is this creative.

Wonderful line, except in this case those stick-men hanging from trees are Republicans

Given my fractured confidence in any bipartisan efforts initiated by the Obama administration, the results of yesterday’s “health summit” held at the Blair House, was of little surprise to me.  Carefully done, so eloquent, such a phony display of reaching across the table…to kick the Republicans in the face.

From the Wall Street Journal:

The Summit Sideshow
Democrats still face big political challenges in passing health legislation

BY Kim Strassel

The thing to know about President Obama’s health talkfest is that it had zero to do with Republicans or their ideas. The GOP came, it spiritedly debated, it left. The president never budged. He never intended to.

The Summit Show was designed by Democrats for Democrats, to give Mr. Obama an all-day stage to inspire and exhort his party to charge once more into the health fray. It’s about “altering the political atmospherics,” admitted one senior Democrat. Yet for all the talk of “jump-start,” there’s little to suggest the ugly politics of passage have changed…

But the real question still remains…Did the Democrats fool anyone?  As I was checking my email, I noticed an instant reply message from a colleague which stated that her work hours had been dropped to part-time. Ouch.  Among friends both in the flesh and virtual, I know of at least 36 that are currently unemployed.  My own argument against this push for nationalized healthcare is that it should not be a priority at the moment.  I thought after the Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts, the Democrats understood that the country wanted them to concentrate on JOBS.

Get it? JOBS?

I thought Obama promised to be the “people’s president”.

So why isn’t he listening?

Obama, open your ears.  Hear your people.

Sarah, Sarah…Storms Are Brewing In Liberal’s Eyes September 9, 2009

Pages from Sarah Palin Graphc Novel Bluewater's new Female Force series, based on influential women who are "making and shaping modern history

With former Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s op ed piece appearing in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, the Occulata palingenia haterus moonbats are out for blood.

In this article in The Atlantic by Marc Ambinder, it is posited that Sarah Palin is should not be seriously considered as a voice for the conservatives when there are other Republican’s such as Newt Gingrich who are more “serious”.

The Atlantic

Media Challenge: Will They Take The Palin Bait?

Sep 8 2009, by Marc Ambinder

Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate, has every right to submit an opinion piece on health care to the Wall Street Journal’s op-ed page, and they’ve got every right to print it.

But Palin’s existence in this debate does not (a) lend her voice any credibility and, beyond that, even if you believe that her experience as a state governor does give her at least a modicum of credibility, it does not follow that, because her voice is credible, it ought to be influential. Newt Gingrich is influential by rights; he’s done the work, come up with original ideas, and been in the trenches. (Replacing Medicare with vouchers…not new or remotely plausible, even if GOPers do well in the next two elections. Quoting Ronald Reagan talking about that type of proposal…not new. Etc.)

The media — by which I mean the cable news networks, primarily — will determine whether Palin’s view on health care becomes influential. There are many Republican, conservative health care spokespeople who have earned the right to speak for their party’s principals, and, truth be told, can recite the talking points (complete with Ronald Reagan quote) better than Palin and her writer can.  They’re the ones who should be offended if Palin’s op-ed becomes the voice of the opposition tomorrow, because Palin isn’t seen by most Americans as a particularly trenchent analyst of policy. Indeed, the reason why Palin’s team wants to get her pieces in publications like the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal is that, in this next phase of her political career, Mrs. Palin has to burnish her policy skills.  And the Journal is all too willing to lend some space to this project, because plenty of people will see the piece.

Sarah Palin novel 2

The Atlantic piece is being very presumptuous. Again the mainstream media assumes that anyone actually gives a damn about their opinion. According to them we should not listen to anything that Sarah Palin has to say or write about health care reform because she knows nothing about the issue despite being the governor of Alaska and a mother of five children. If having five children is not credited as “being in the trenches”, I don’t know what is.  And what of President Barack Obama’s times in the trenches on health care reform or any other important political issue? Ah, but this is addressed, the article continues:


Sarah Palin Novel 3…So here’s a challenge to the media: if you want to do justice to conservative ideas and find some balance in your coverage tomorrow, book serious Republicans with original ideas on your programs. If you don’t, Palin is giving herself a voice at your expense and through little effort of her own.

By implying, incidentally, that Palin gets help from a speechwriter, I mean to make an observation. Barack Obama didn’t draft his op-ed, either. But, reading Obama, it’s not a leap to believe that the ideas are truly his. Palin has no chops and no experience talking about health care and isn’t participating in this debate; the content of her op-ed piece isn’t original, and the points are points that Republicans make every day.

This is the reality. Palin has policy credibility problems. Big ones. A few op-eds aren’t going to help her. But if the media treats her as as a legitimate and influential voice today, she won’t need to do the hard work that will result in her learning more about policy and actually becoming conversant in the issues that she, as a potential presidential candidate, will deal with…

Sarah-Palin-Female-Force-001

To summarize, Sarah Palin is accused of being unlike Barack Obama because she does not have any ideas of her own about health care reform.

And what is it exactly, that makes us so sure that Barack Obama has any ideas of his own about health care? Is it because his mother and grandmother both died of disease related illnesses? Or is it because he actually authored a piece of legislation on health care during his time as an Illinois state senator?

He did not you know.Obama never authored one piece of legislation as a senator. He voted “present” during much of his term and campaigned for the rest of it.

A crucial aspect of this scathing critique on Sarah Palin ability to influence conservative masses points to her lack of experience. However the sexist revisionist historians at The Atlantic seemed to have developed a case of collective amnesia when it comes to President Barack Obama’s lack of real in the trenches experience. Anyone who can recall Obama’s last prime time press conference on health care reform may vividly remember Obama’s droll dead pan teleprompter reading expression. It was obvious that what he was reading from the screen did not originate from dear leader’s mind. I was not certain that he wanted to be there. Did he read the bill that he allowed congress to write?

Can you remember that the only time Barack Obama showed any inclination that a single thought was his own was when he race baited the Cambridge Police Department? He actually smiled because that was the most comfortable moment for him during the entire press conference. See, this guy does have ideas of his own. What the ideas are about is the troubling issue. We will see tonight if Obama gives us more insight into his time in the trenches.

As The Bus Wheel Turns: Public Option Under The Bus August 17, 2009

obama-buscrowded

While confined to the service garage for several months, the Obama “hopenchange” bus got an oil change and a new set of tires. Things can get kind of messy under there with all that road kill sticking to the tread.  For a guilty Republican pleasure, I find it plausible to find a certain satisfaction during the Obama bus kill tours.  From my perspective, I love it when some raving Obamabot gets rear ended or side swiped by the man they elected.  Usually when we think of Obama bus road kill, human beings come to mind. Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Judas – Bill Richardson, John Kerry, Caroline Kennedy, his maternal grandmother “Toot” (but she gets resurrected whenever Obama finds it convenient to use her as part of a sympathy ploy.)

This is the same woman that Obama called a “typical white person’ during a 2008 interview.

Obama uses familial anecdotes copiously whenever it suits him, after he is done the road kill gets thrown back under the bus for later use.

Thus far, we have only seen people go under the Obama bus however, now the White House has extended the invitation to policies and provisions in the health care bill.

The Public Option Goes Over

The big fight over ObamaCare is far from finished.

AUGUST 17, 2009

So it looks as if the public option has been sent to the death panel—so to speak. Over the weekend President Obama and other White House officials throttled back their demands for a new health-care entitlement program that looked like Medicare for the middle class. Liberals are in a furor and more than a few conservatives are popping champagne corks. But dumping one of the most radical and destructive features of ObamaCare is best viewed as a tactical political retreat, not a surrender.

The Administration had to toss something overboard, considering the rising swell of voter opposition and the fact that many Democrats are getting queasy in the current health-care squall, especially in the Senate. Jettisoning the public option is supposed to quiet the public’s main worry about government control of medical decision-making—not to mention neutralizing the insurance industry’s main objection. The issue now is whether Mr. Obama’s fall-back is merely to pass the public option on the installment plan.

To pose the question is to answer it. “All I’m saying is, though, that the public option, whether we have it or we don’t have it, is not the entirety of health-care reform,” Mr. Obama said Saturday in Colorado. “This is just one sliver of it, one aspect of it.”

Yet the public option wasn’t some afterthought, or merely the obsession of Congress’s leftward fringe. A new government-run program would crowd out private insurers by undercutting them on consumer prices, courtesy of an intravenous drip of taxpayer dollars and its monopsony power to force doctors and hospitals to accept sub-market rates. As millions of people gravitated toward “free” coverage, the public option would also vastly expand federal management of the practice of medicine, shaping the treatments and care patients can receive to save on costs.

Some liberals were honest, or used to be honest, about where all this would lead. Barney Frank noted the main reason Democrats were not backing a total government takeover: “We don’t have the votes for it. I wish we did. I think if we had a good public option it would lead to single payer.” Then there’s Mr. Obama’s now famous 2003 remarks: “I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health-care program. . . . But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately.”

I hear that liberal moonbat Cindy Sheehan is furious with President Obama over the possible dumping of the public option in Obamacare, among other issues such as Obama’s continuenace of the Bush war policies.

Sorry "W" looks like the Obama Bus got to her first.

Cindy Sheehan heads to the Vineyard; wants anti-war demonstrators to emulate health-care protesters; will anyone cover the story?

By: Byron York
Chief Political Correspondent
08/17/09

This morning the anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan — the woman who spent so much time leading well-publicized protests outside President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas — announced that she will demonstrate next week at Martha’s Vineyard, where President Obama will be vacationing…Will Sheehan’s stay in Massachusetts attract as much attention as her time in Texas?  Probably not.  Even the left wing of the Democratic party seems unconcerned with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan these days, compared to their bitter opposition during Bush’s time in office.  It seems unlikely that reporters who paid so much attention to one woman’s crusade against the war will find much time on their newscasts or space in their paper to cover this one.

Excuse me while I laugh hysterically. The Obamacare emergency room is filled with victims of the bus. Better bring the latest issue of Ms. magazine, they may have a long wait to see the hopenchange doctor.
