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

And this little Donkey Went “Wee wee wee” all the way home… January 22, 2010

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:

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!!!



I am so jealous. The lucky people of Massachusetts get this:

Meanwhile back in Crook County, unfortunately poor Afrocity has to deal with this:

Please watch this laughable clip of the  January 14, 2010  debate of Republican candidates running for the U.S. Senate seat once held by President Obama in Illinois. One candidate actually gets accused of being a racist by a moderator.

Boston Calling:Kennedys Don’t Die August 28, 2009

It should come as no surprise that if Democrats use the race card to push their health care reform bill down citizens throats, they should have no problem using the “death card”. Even if the late Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy had done nothing in life, the liberals will certainly make sure he works his ass off in death.

From ABC News:

Key Question Is Whether Kennedy’s Death Can Rally Fellow Democrats

BY TEDDY DAVIS

Aug. 26, 2009

Democrats are hoping that the memory of Sen. Ted Kennedy will revive the Democratic Party’s flagging push for health care reform.

“You’ve heard of ‘win one for the Gipper’? There is going to be an atmosphere of ‘win one for Teddy,’” Ralph G. Neas, the CEO of the liberal National Coalition on Health Care, told ABC News.

Democrats are hoping that Kennedy’s influence in death may be even stronger than it was when he was alive as they push for President Obama’s top domestic priority. Democratic officials hope that invoking Kennedy’s passion for the issue will counter slippage in support for heatlh care reform.

“Ted Kennedy’s dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made real this year because of his leadership and his inspiration,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a statement.

Pelosi’s sentiment was echoed by former vice president Al Gore who served with Kennedy in the Senate.

“Ted would want nothing more than for his colleagues to continue his life’s work and to make real his dream of quality health care for all Americans,” said Gore.

To infuse Kennedy into the health-care debate, Democrats are planning to affix the former senator’s name to the health-care legislation that emerges from Congress.

The idea of naming the legislation for Kennedy has been quietly circulating for months but was given a new push today by Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., the only person who served with Kennedy for all his 47 years in the Senate.

“In his honor and as a tribute to his commitment to his ideals, let us stop the shouting and name calling and have a civilized debate on health care reform which I hope, when legislation has been signed into law, will bear his name for his commitment to insuring the health of every American,” Byrd said.

Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., a member of the Senate Health, Education and Labor Pensions Committee chaired by Kennedy, has been the panel’s point person on health-care reform in Kennedy’s absence. Today Dodd said that he hopes Kennedy’s death will revive a spirit of bipartisanship.

I also wanted to share a clip of the O’Reilly Factor in which Laura Ingram faces offers a debate on the use of the death card:


All of this activity on the Part of the Democrats to invoke sympathy for the health care bill using Ted Kennedy’s has also obscured the fact that the state of Massachusetts is attempting to overturn a law which would determined how Kennedy’s vacant senate seat is filled.

Reversal on Senate Succession Stirs Political Storm

Democrats’ Push to Let Governor Fill Kennedy’s Seat, After Demanding Special Vote in 2004, Draws Accusations of Hypocrisy

By JOHN HECHINGER and PHILIP SHISHKIN

BOSTON -- A Democratic push to appoint a successor to the late Sen. Edward Kennedy is sparking a political tempest in Massachusetts, infuriating Republicans and dividing Democrats who only five years ago passed a law requiring that voters decide on Senate vacancies.

On a day when members of both parties paid their respects to Mr. Kennedy, a Democratic icon who died this week of brain cancer, Republicans accused Democrats of hypocrisy. In 2004, the state’s Democrat-controlled legislature changed the law to prevent the governor from appointing an interim successor after a U.S. Senate seat becomes vacant. Instead, the new law requires that a special election be held between 145 and 165 days after the position becomes vacant.

At the time, Democratic Sen. John Kerry was running for president and Massachusetts had a Republican governor, Mitt Romney. Proponents of changing the law argued that a gubernatorial appointment was undemocratic and that only voters should decide on a replacement. Democrats also feared Mr. Romney would appoint a Republican.

Now, with Mr. Kennedy dying three years before his term was up, some Massachusetts Democrats are reversing course, calling for Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick to appoint an interim replacement to hold office until the special election can be held. They now argue the state shouldn’t be without full Senate representation for months, especially with pressing issues such as health care before Congress.

The Massachusetts situation is the latest to erupt over filling vacant U.S. Senate seats, following particularly messy appointments in New York and Illinois.

Dear people of Massachusetts, I am begging you to not allow the reversal of your law governing how a vacant senate seat should be filled. Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, you should be genuinely troubled by this move to take the decision out of the hands of the people. Remember what happened with Rod Blagojevich, the former governor of Illinois who was impeached for attempting to sell Barack Obama’s senate seat. Remember the Caroline Kennedy situation in New York state. Caroline was clearly not up to the task (uh, uh, uh) however her inepitude did not stop her from becoming dangerously close to being appointed by Gov. David Paterson.

Please put your political beliefs aside for a moment and challenge any move by the Massachusetts legislators to take power from your hands. America is a democracy. If the citizens of Massachusetts chose a democrat to succeed Ted Kennedy in the senate, then so be it. At least the voice of the people will be heard. The Illinois and New York examples should serve as a painful reminder that politicians have a penchant for probing beneath the surface of ethics in order to satiate their need for campaign funds. Contact your legislators and say no, storm the capital. Just do it!
