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

Media Come Lately: The Cult of Personality Vs. The Cult of Constitutionality August 24, 2010

During a recent Fox News report, I noticed Juan Williams aka FOX NEWS LIBERAL IN CHIEF  warning the Republicans that the American people have no faith in them despite the tanking support for Democrats.

It should go without saying that the blame merchants that are the DNC, have again stuck their donkey heads in the sand when it comes to knowing what the American people want.

Welcome to the new mainstream media liberal spin on their impending ass kicking in November.   We are going to lose but we will a) let you conservatives know that the American public hates you while being unsure of us and b) try to offer you advice on how to win in November so it can look like you won because you actually listened to us hence we do not look as in the tank for Obama as we really are.

Some liberal commentators avoid the trap by admitting that the Democrats are screwed.  I respect this.  If the GOP was doing things that I disagreed with, I would say so.   According to Dr. Phil, in his bestseller  Life Strategies: Doing What Works, Doing What Matters

Life Law #4

” YOU CANNOT CHANGE WHAT YOU DON’T ACKNOWLEDGE”.

Regardless of your opinion of Dr. Phil,  the Texan is right.   The Democrats should look themselves in the face and say “We suck. The people do not like our policies. They want moderation. We need to change.”

But instead they look in the mirror and see greatness. They see poor Americans who do know what they need so the Democrats know what is best for these aimless citizens.  Green propaganda is shoved down our throats. We are over-stimulated and under paid.

Unchallenged by the media and his supporters, Obama and his liberal marinated Congress continue to drive the Democratic Party into a ditch that gets deeper and deeper by the month.  The party of free speech and open protest located the Tea Party as the crazy racist in this piece.  What happened to “get in their faces” ?   What happened to “get angry”?  It did not apply to the Tea Party movement.

As the anti-tax party moved forward, they were mocked by the mainstream media and President Obama.  The protesters were misguided Americans who were resistant to the “hope” that Obama offered.

In the world according to the media, Democrats are never at fault.


YOU are the problem and the Republicans cannot offer YOU anything better but since YOU may vote for them anyway lets say some stuff to make US feel better about our predicament.

From CNN:

10 things Republicans must do in 10 weeks

By Ed Hornick, CNN

August 24, 2010 9:04 a.m.

Washington (CNN) — With the midterm elections just 10 weeks away, analysts expect big wins for Republicans.

But strategists and analysts say there are some key things the GOP must do to win over the American people and have a chance of taking back control of Congress.

1. Focus on jobs, jobs, jobs

Ron Christie, a Republican strategist who worked for former President George W. Bush, said that Republicans must play up how Democrats have focused too much energy on issues other than jobs.

“I think Republicans are poised to make significant gains in the House, if not outright control, and bolster their significant minority status in the Senate by talking about one thing, and that’s jobs,” he added. “And within the jobs mantra, it’s how they would strengthen the economy.”

Christie said that it’s incumbent upon Republicans to make the case why they should be trusted with the “keys to the car” and why they should be “given the chance to drive the cars of government once again.”

2. Become the party of solutions, not “no”

Democrats have argued throughout policy debates in Congress that Republicans are the “party of no” and the “party of obstruction” — standing firm against important legislation simply to undermine Democrats. Republicans argue they are trying to stop the Democrats’ radical agenda from becoming law.

“One of the biggest challenges for Republicans heading into November is that they need to be the party of ideas,” said Mark Preston, CNN senior political editor. “They just can’t be the party of obstruction … but to also offer solutions to some of the problems that are facing the nation.”

Christie added that in order to win over voters, his party needs to “rebuild the breach of trust” they’ve lost in articulating their vision and ideas to fix kitchen table issues.

3. Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow

Kevin Madden, a GOP strategist, noted it’s important for Republicans to look forward as they campaign.

“Fundamentally, every midterm election is a contest about the future, what you’re going to do, what the next day’s going to look like,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.” “And whether or not the voters want to see a relitigation of the past at a time where they are obviously very angry about the present and not too hopeful about the future is a very big mistake.”

Christie said that health care policy is a case in point:

“Just saying no to health insurance is not the way forward for Republicans in this election,” he said.

4. Offense is the best defense

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is the first to admit his party is on the offense this election cycle and is confident his party will prevail in November.

“The American public has taken a look at this administration,” he said on NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday. “They think it’s spending too much, borrowing too much, taking over too much of the private sector and now raising taxes on top of it. … There are 70 some odd days between now and the election. I’m optimistic.”

The Republican Party by most accounts was left for dead in 2009, with no real leader and a party apparatus in disarray, Preston said. But things quickly changed.

House Republicans, he said, were the “first glue to try to pull the party back together and that was their opposition to the stimulus. And from there, they were able to build upon that.”

5. Offer a “Contract with a America” Part II

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has been credited with Republicans taking back control of Congress in the 1994 midterm elections. His “Contract with America” — a set of party principles and policy solutions — resonated with voters.

It’s something Republicans should use once again to drive home their message to the electorate, Christie said.

“Republicans need to articulate why they should be given the trust and the responsibility to drive the course of the nation,” he said. “I think if there are five or 10 specific areas that, if given the trust, the Republicans would do and would enact within an amount of time, I think that would be very strong because people could look very clearly and delineate what the Republican message and what the Republicans platform is expressed to be.”

6) Embrace tea party support with caution

While the tea party is not an official political party, it is a visible and vocal movement. It’s concerned about government spending and a growing deficit, which are traditional conservative issues.

McConnell noted on Sunday that the movement has been “extremely helpful” and has “produced a lot of energy in our primaries and I think it’s going to produce victories in November.”

But Preston warned that Republicans should proceed with caution, because the tea party movement “really prides itself on being very independent and not tied to Washington.”

“While Republicans need to embrace them, they can’t try to pull them in into their wings and have them be their soldiers heading into November,” he added.

7. Avoid social issues

In a year when the economy is issue No. 1, observers argue Republicans don’t need to bring up hot-button issues such as same-sex marriage, which normally revs up the base. This year, they say, the base is energized and ready to take back control.

R. Clarke Cooper, executive director of the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay and lesbian group, said that Republicans should be “consistently maintaining a general drumbeat of messaging on core conservative principles of individual liberty, individual responsibility, free-market economy, tax reform, strong national defense and a confident foreign policy” rather than weighing in on same-sex marriage.

8. Appeal to independents

Independents are widely credited for helping Barack Obama win office in 2008. But a lot has changed since then. Polls show that independents have drifted away from the president and his party.

Courting independents, then, is vital.

“The Republicans know that independents were an absolutely critical partner to Obama in the presidential election in 2008,” said Jacqueline Salit, president of independentvoting.org, a national strategy and organizing center for independents. “So there’s a lot of energy going into trying to peel independents away and turn them back to center-right.”

9. Channel Bill Clinton (yes, Bill Clinton)

Perhaps surprisingly, Christie said Republicans should channel former President Bill Clinton’s optimism and love of country when on the campaign trail.

“President Clinton was very much a strong supporter of this country. He loved this country. He clearly connected with the constituents that elected him,” he said. “You contrast that with a president who seems self-pitying; who seems to loathe political opposition; who seems to be in a position that ‘I’m somehow above the fray and that these are my policies, take ’em or leave ’em.’ “

10. Turn the Bush blame game around

Obama has recently begun to blast Bush and his administration for causing the country’s current economic conditions. Republicans jumped on that criticism, saying it shows a party that is afraid to run on its legislative record.

While polls show that Bush is still unpopular with most Americans, Republicans may be able use the Bush blame game against Democrats.

“I think rather than Republicans playing defense or speaking about President Bush or President Bush’s record, they need to say that Democrats aren’t willing to talk about moving forward. And we are,” Christie said. “And the longer that they dwell on the past, it shows that they are not up to the task of leading us forward in these difficult times.”

At risk of sounding like a panderer I will admit that there may be some truth to the “voters do not trust Republicans either”  theory.   However as I have stated in other posts, when it comes to food on the table, people don’t care if the food comes from the jackass or the elephant as long as there is food.

Juan Williams can blame Bush all he likes.  He can even call the Republicans racist.  If the Democrats continue to practice the persistence of stupidity and spending, they will lose.  As the liberal voice of Fox News, you would think Juan would get a clue when he can no longer come up with plausible rebuttals to the arguments and insights of his conservative colleagues.

It was sad to see Juan argue that blaming Bush is a reasonable campaign strategy for Democrats in November 2010.   Any fifth grader can see that it is not working.  Is confronting the real problem in your party really that terrifying? Can anyone fully articulate why the Democrats do not own the current situation or at least why working solutions are not being executed?

Hmmm tea or Kool-aid?

How about a tall glass of  truth?

More and more voters  are becoming “independent”  at the ballot box.   While the skeptic in me will always believe that you are more so inclined towards one party or the other, I believe that party loyalty will fly out the window if the party in majority is not competent of doing its job.

We saw this with the number of Democrats who voted for Ronald Reagan many elections ago.  This trend was also witnessed during the 2008 elections when some Republicans actually voted for Obama over McCain ala Colin Powell.

Also, beware of the “protest voter”.   Here the mindset is “I am voting for the other party which is against you because I love what you once were and hope to see you return”  and/or “stop taking my support for granted”.

2008 was the year of the candidate.

Faces, names, rhetoric- the cult of personality. But not so fast this time Democrats.

2010 will be the year of the voter.

Feelings, anger, American values , protest- the cult of constitutionality.

We want our country back.

We want to restore our economy.

We want to feel safe from terrorism.

We want energy independence.

We want our government to look like a body of sane individuals and not like a space ship full of spend psycho aliens landed.

We want America.

We the people got the memo long before the mainstream media.

So take your Monday morning quarterback advice and shove it.

We are taking our country back one voter at a time.

Saturday Toons: I Just Love Michele…Bachmann That Is November 14, 2009

 

obama-real-500x625Liberal Jon Stewart lovers are not letting up on their only hope that conservative media (aka Fox News) and the most hated conservative politician besides Sarah Palin, – Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) are immoral scumbags like most of the mainstream media and Democratic politicians he fails to cover.

Several times this week, I have been met with ” Hey Afrocity, did you hear how Jon Stewart busted Sean Hannity and Michelle Bachman?”

If you have not already heard about it, then allow me to fill you in on what the firestorm of controversy is all about.

From this article in the San Francisco Chronicle:

Hannity & Bachmann lie about rally numbers | Hannity apologizes to Jon Stewart

By Yobie Benjamin

November 11, 2009

On his Fox News show, Sean Hannity misleadingly aired video from the 9-12 March on Washington while discussing Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN) much smaller November 5 anti-health care reform rally to claim that 20,000 – 45,000 plus people showed up to Bachmann’s protest.

Ha!!!  “Reliable sources like MSNBC..” ? Is he kidding?

Olbermann_Dolly

From "I Own The World.com"

I will say again if you have not heard about this then consider yourself lucky to have escaped the desperate gloating of a liberal who clings to the notion that Keith Olberman is actually a good journalist. Afrocity just smiles and acknowledges that it was wrong. The liberal goes skipping down the hallway. Poor thing, it must feel good. Every squirrel needs a nut. The sun must shine on a donkey’s ass sometime.

To be fair, what Sean Hannity and Fox News did was wrong. Do you hear that gloating liberals waiting for bone?  Afrocity agrees with you that it was unethical for Sean to use video footage from another rally in order to mislead the viewers. Personally,  attendance numbers do not matter to me. What does matter is that Rep. Bachmann was doing her part to make sure that Obamacare was not passed.

kill_bill-11

Unlike Keith Olberman who continues to lie and exaggerate on the daily basis,  at least Sean Hannity apologized:


exorcist Bachman

From I Own The World, Hat Tip- Cowgirl Conservative

Should I be angry about this? Sorry but I am not.

Will I switch back to MSNBC, CNN…read the Washington Post?  No.

I will continue to watch FOX News. I really do not care about the videotape. I still love Michele Bachmann.  My only criticism of her is that she not care about the number of people who show up to see her. Leave that to the Obama worshiping Kool Aid gang such as Robert Gibbs and David Axelrod. Numbers do not equate substance.  How many people attended Obama rallies during the presidential campaign, yet left just as clueless about his agenda as they were before they attended? Sadly, they did not care about the words flowing from Obama’s mouth. Michele, I am sure your attendees were present because they actually gave a damn about the future of health care in America. They were angry and wanted to be heard.

Michele keep doing what you do best. Who cares about the perception? Who cares about the popularity contests?

Moonbat Monday: The FOX Hunters October 26, 2009

4035223198_4a730b787c_o

For little more than a year I have been in a wonderful relationship…with FOX News.

Other’s seem to agree as FOX news makes a killing every night in the ratings.  Yes, I love Bill-O, Sean, Shep, Greta, Glenn, Megyn, Charles Krauthhammer, Tammy Bruce, and even Juan.  Am I fair and balanced in my choice of news sources?  Hell no! Frankly, I do not care.

3596619837_b090aab6ceDuring a frustrating August day in 2008, I became increasingly dissatisfied with the media coverage surrounding then presidential candidate Barack Obama, especially on cable networks CNN and MSNBC.

To be fair, my mind was already made up against Obama.   He could not have given me 1 million dollars for my vote.  All that I needed to see of him and his lack of presidential qualities I admired had been locked in since his bid for the Democratic nomination against Hillary Clinton.

However, it seemed clear to me that the good folks of CNN and MSNBC also were firm in their decision about the upcoming election. Campbell Brown -all bull…so biased. Keith Olberman (blech). It was all about Barry. Barry could do no wrong.  GOP VP-nominee Sarah Palin was an idiot. John McCain was a racist and so were his gun toting supporters.

Distanced logic and a commitment to telling the truth seemed to be the last thing on the minds of reporters getting tingles up their legs over THE CHOSEN ONE. That is when I chose FOX.

At first, I delighted in the absence of Obama worship. That is what brought me to FOX.   With time, it was the network’s no frills commentators, tenacity for getting at the heart of the matter and commitment  to balanced reporting that kept me with Fox.  I also appreciate the feminine aspect of the network. Beauty and brains rule, every woman with a law degree, sweet smile and the bite of a pit bull.

Remember this little tiff between Megyn Kelly and Obama Campaign guy Bill Burton?

Homer_FoxHunt

Okay, so FOX News and Obama seem to have a bit of history. However, now that the 2008 presidential campaign is in the history books and Obama is our president, some feuds never die.

White House: Fox Pushed Team Obama Over the Brink

A senior Obama adviser says White House staffers realized they’d never get a fair shake from Fox

Posted October 23, 2009

The White House’s feud with Fox News has caused an irresistible buzz in Washington, but many are wondering precisely what prompted President Obama and his advisers to go ballistic against the network.

Here’s the answer: Team Obama was pushed over the brink by a growing list of what it considered outrageous anti-Obama conduct by Fox that showed no sign of stopping. Obama’s advisers say that they seethed while Fox commentators used their shows to encourage protests against Obama’s healthcare proposals last summer. Team Obama fumed as Fox personalities tried to pressure some controversial Obama advisers to resign. White House officials

say that Fox has continued to stir the pot against Obama in a regular pattern—raising a criticism, having Republican congressional leaders comment on it, and then using those comments to keep the criticism alive.

A break point came when Fox tried to create the impression that angry anti-Obama protesters at congressional town hall meetings last summer signaled that Obama’s healthcare proposals were dying, a story line that other news organization picked up. White House officials say this was untrue, that those proposals were not dying at all.

Another break point came when Fox commentator Chris Wallace called White House officials “crybabies.” A senior Obama adviser tells U.S. News that White House staffers developed “a growing realization” that the president would never get a fair shake from Fox.

White House insiders say that, at some point, White House officials will appear again on Fox, but they will do so expecting an antagonistic atmosphere, as if they were appearing on conservative talk radio. Asked what White House insiders hope to accomplish with the feud, the adviser says, “We are not spending much time here at the White House thinking about Fox” but are focusing instead on the president’s agenda, including health care legislation, the economy, regulatory reform, Afghanistan

, and Iran. “Fox is using this to promote themselves,” the adviser says. “Our hope is simply that responsible journalists will not go chasing after Fox stories” as if these stories were legitimate.

Hmmm, if the Obama administration is so “not worried about FOX news can someone explain why they are trying so hard to lock out the news station that they claim is “not a legitimate news source”?

Again the Obamabots seek to crush and destroy rather than lead by example thus giving the world precious pearls of beer sud wisdom and “teachable moments”

Desperate to stay in the game weasel Democrats who normally shy away from FOX have been cropping up on the network. This morning Florida congress woman Deb Wasserman Schultz popped up on the morning show –cheery and full of liberal bias as always.

Sunday Lanny Davis got his ass handed to him on a platter by Mike Huckabee.

I do not agree with everything Mike Huckabee stands for but I love the way he handles himself with liberals.

I love it. Mike was honest. Yes we are fair and balanced but that does not mean we drink the Kool Aid and it certainly does not mean we hide what we believe in.

Moonbat Monday: “Wee-Weed” and Other Great Speeches of Our Time August 24, 2009

DNC Brain“There’s something about August going into September — (hee ha ha lol) — where everybody in Washington gets all wee-weed up.

-President Barack Obama, August 20, 2009

Can moonbats (family liberalis) develop the dreaded donkey hoof in mouth disease?You betcha.

Have you ever been to a library and thumbed through a copy of The Public Papers of the Presidents?  Most libraries own a complete set.

The Public Papers of the Presidents series is published by the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) and is the official publication of United States Presidents’ public writings, addresses, and remarks. The series has been in existence since the Hoover administration.

Most presidents such as Dwight Eisenhower have eight volumes , while others like John F. Kennedy have only three due to his untimely demise.  Usually there is a volume for each year of a president’s term. The longer the presidency, the more volumes he and hopefully someday she will have.

The exterior of each volume is cloth bound and rather stately. The name of each president is printed in gold leaf.

Ronald Reagan having a good solid eight year presidency 1981-1989 has many volumes which should contain every speech and address he ever made.  The same goes for Richard Milhous Nixon. His resignation speech is contained in the final volume of his published papers:

Published Presidential Papers of Harry S. Truman. 8 volumes.

Published Presidential Papers of Harry S. Truman. 8 volumes.

…I shall leave this office with regret at not completing my term, but with gratitude for the privilege of serving as your President for the past 51/2 years. These years have been a momentous time in the history of our Nation and the world. They have been a time of achievement in which we can all be proud, achievements that represent the shared efforts of the Administration, the Congress, and the people.But the challenges ahead are equally great, and they, too, will require the support and the efforts of the Congress and the people working in cooperation with the new Administration.

We have ended America’s longest war, but in the work of securing a lasting peace in the world, the goals ahead are even more far-reaching and more difficult. We must complete a structure of peace so that it will be said of this generation, our generation of Americans, by the people of all nations, not only that we ended one war but that we prevented future wars…

-President Richard Milhous Nixon ( August 8, 1974)

As an object in itself, each volume tells a story. In the photograph of the Truman papers above, notice how some volumes are larger than others. What does that mean? It is as if each volume is haunted by the events. Was Truman too busy plotting the destruction of Japan to speak that year? Did he have a tonsillectomy? What was going on? Could be nothing at all. Perhaps one during one year a president was a more prolific speaker than others.

Now fast forward to the year 2009 and President Barack H. Obama. I cannot wait to see this particular gem in volume one of his official papers:

“I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry. Number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home. And number three – what I think we know separate and apart from this incident – is that there is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that’s just a fact.”  –President Barack Obama (July 2009)

Scientific Proof That MoonbatsHave Suffered From Foot in Mouth Disease Since Ancient Times

Scientific Proof That Moonbats Have Suffered From Foot in Mouth Disease Since Ancient Times.

Many Obamabots claim to have admired Barack Obama because he was an eloquent speaker. He was consistently praised as  an “articulate and gifted orator”.  His election to POTUS meant that Americans would not be subjected to the embarrassment we suffered as country under the obvious illiteracy of President George W.Bush. Bush II was born in New Haven, Connecticut at Yale University Hospital but make no mistake- he was a Texan through and through. The problem for many liberals was that he sounded like one. Obama being more polished and armed with an arsenal of teleprompters should not have the same problem right? Wrong. The words may uh, uh, uh, sound pretty but whether or not they actually offer Americans the intellectual stimulation they crave is highly debatable.

teleprompterThe White House press secretary is responsible for providing the materials contained in the “public papers” for his administration. For President Obama that would be the blundering Robert Gibbs who in my opinion will without question go down in history as the worse press secretary EVER. I say this not as a Republican but as an American. Why President Obama hired and continues to retain Gibbs in his administration is beyond me. Gibbs makes a mockery out of the office of press secretary. Makes one wonder if Gibbs has something over Obama’s head and that is why he has the job. If the Obama administration’s goal is to make the White House appear glaringly inexperienced but also as transparent as a barrel of crude oil, they have succeeded.

“The thrill is gone for Obama and the media”

By: Chris Stirewalt
August 24, 2009

There’s nothing like a summer vacation to rekindle a romance. So maybe a week on Martha’s Vineyard can bring back some of the magic between the Obama administration and the media.

Before White House press secretary Robert Gibbs left town, he tried to clarify President Barack Obama’s comment that “everybody in Washington gets all wee-weed up.” Gibbs explained to reporters that what the president meant was that they were a bunch of bed wetters who made too much out of the implosion of the White House health care strategy.

Gibbs has grown more sardonic and patronizing as the summer wears on and Obama’s poll numbers wilt.

The press secretary has lectured reporters on the nature of their jobs — apparently to defend the administration against “misinformation” rather than asking impertinent questions like “How will you pay for it?”

When asked recently about the administration’s endless evasions on the public option, Gibbs instead opted to define a monopoly.
“If you had one place to eat lunch before you came to the briefing, do you think it would be cheap?” Gibbs demanded of CNN’s Ed Henry.

Henry should have asked Gibbs to define monopsony: a market in which one buyer is so large that it can control suppliers and ruin competitors. Henry could then explain he’d rather pay too much for the sandwich he wanted than have to eat at a government chow line opened across the street to encourage “competition.”

Gibbs is so crabby because, incredibly, the administration blames the media for the president’s problems.

It tried blaming Republicans, but the GOP is too far out of power. When the leader of the free world is complaining about a posting on the former governor of Alaska’s Facebook page, he’s got problems.

Now listen to Press Secretary Robert Gibbs explanation of what President Obama meant by “wee weed up”

Yes, indeed I cannot wait to include those 4 volumes of the Presidential Papers of Barack H. Obama in my personal library. I will shelve them lovingly next to my moonbat taxonomy resources.

Postcards from the Political Edge: Greetings from the Sea of “Change” May 15, 2009

Vintage linen postcard--Same Old Moon

Vintage linen postcard--Same Old Moon

As I was watching the news this morning, I could not help but wonder if Washington D.C. or the American presidency will ever be quite the same again. Usually I am not one that is given to making sweeping generalizations. I am also not saying that everything should remain the same in Washington. Of course every president brings “change”. Change is a good thing. Disaster is not. There are some disturbing conditions emerging from Obama’s sea of change. With no able seamen on deck, I am not sure that America can stay afloat much longer. Washington’s most socially progressive experiment is going down fast and the result may be the liquidation of American values.

Washington Postcard

For those who believed that Obama would be a refreshing change from the previous 8 years, I would hope that the “blame it on Bush” approach is wearing thin. With his usual flair for self-aggrandizement, all paths lead back to Barack Obama and he is politically overplaying his hand.  What was most interesting to me as  I flipped between Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC (ick) is the media agenda, especially from the left and the persistent sense of tampered memory that will shape Obama’s narrative. This media weathering is downright painful to watch. Concerning the Nancy Pelosi debacle, Rachel Maddow had a guest speaker on last night spewing connotations of political warfare. Of course everything is the fault of the Republicans. They made Nancy lie.  Of all the networks, MSMBC is by far one of America’s most ardent liberal revivalists. Keith  Blabberman and his lapdogs attempt to recapture the magic of Kennedy’s Camelot by restoring fashion, pulchritude and misogyny in their coverage of anything Obama.

During the past decade we have witnessed the decaying of political integrity. Yes 10 years –“I did not have sexual relations with that woman” .  Remember that?  We have also witnessed the decaying of journalistic integrity. Just take a look at any “Sideshow Rob” Gibbs press conference. Every briefing is a farce. A grammar school debate team could fair better than that guy.   Nancy Pelosi’s Monday press conference “I did not lie” blah, blah blah, was far from convincing. Forget Camelot. It is gone forever. You can cling to that first edition of Profiles in Courage all you want. Camelot will never return. At the present moment there are things that should be much more paramount than our desire to return to the glorious days of Kennedy land.

This goes for you too my fellow Republicans. Reagan is dead. What was is was and we need to move the fuck on. There is much work to be done. Get my drift?

Townhall.com

by George Will
WASHINGTON — Anyone, said T.S. Eliot, could carve a goose, were it not for the bones. And anyone could govern as boldly as their whims decreed, were it not for the skeletal structure that keeps civil society civil — the rule of law. The Obama administration is bold. It also is careless regarding constitutional values and is acquiring a tincture of lawlessness…

Such a federal ukase (the word derives from czarist Russia; how appropriate) to a state legislature is a sign of the administration’s dependency agenda — maximizing the number of people and institutions dependent on the federal government. For the first time, neither sales nor property nor income taxes are the largest source of money for state and local governments. The federal government is.

The SEIU says the cuts violate contracts negotiated with counties. California officials say the state required the contracts to contain clauses allowing pay to be reduced if state funding is.

Anyway, the Obama administration, judging by its cavalier disregard of contracts between Chrysler and some of the lenders it sought money from, thinks contracts are written on water. The administration proposes that Chrysler’s secured creditors get 28 cents per dollar on the $7 billion owed to them, but that the United Auto Workers union get 43 cents per dollar on its $11 billion in claims — and 55 percent of the company. This, even though the secured creditors’ contracts supposedly guaranteed them better standing than the union.

This is not gross, unambiguous lawlessness of the Nixonian sort — burglaries, abuse of the IRS and FBI, etc. — but it is uncomfortably close to an abuse of power that perhaps gave Nixon ideas: When in 1962 the steel industry raised prices, President Kennedy had a tantrum and his administration leaked rumors that the IRS would conduct audits of steel executives, and sent FBI agents on pre-dawn visits to the homes of journalists who covered the steel industry, ostensibly to further a legitimate investigation.

Baroque Obama-Our New Founding Father

Baroque Obama-Our New Founding Father

Will is correct, the outright socialization of America can be glimpsed in several recent examples: the auto industry;the banking and finance industry; and soon the health care industry. Are any eyebrows raised?  As Americans, these examples should make it clear to us that by the second half of Obama’s first term, the freedoms and values of our country will sink gently into the sea of change. When I say values, I am not speaking of gay marriage which I am for, or pro-choice legislation which I support. I am not speaking about religious values but rather our American values and traditions that are more secular in nature. I am speaking about traditions which do not include our being distantly cooler towards allies such as Great Britain and Israel, while cowering to historical enemies and threats to our safety.

When we hear President Obama lecture us about the true intentions of our founding fathers, does he know that they were actually all strong advocates of republican values?

Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, George Washington, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Alexander Hamilton. Even Abraham Lincoln held Republican values. Values that when applied correctly (Not the Bush/Cheney way) foster liberty and the rejection of government interference.

Forget about the historic moment and the images of two little black girls see sawing on the White House lawn. We have to clean up the poop deck.

Will continues:

The Obama administration’s agenda of maximizing dependency involves political favoritism cloaked in the raiment of “economic planning” and “social justice” that somehow produce results superior to what markets produce when freedom allows merit to manifest itself, and incompetence to fail. The administration’s central activity — the political allocation of wealth and opportunity — is not merely susceptible to corruption, it is corruption.

As has been mentioned the “blame it on Bush” defense is wearing thin. During the Pelosi press conference, the media was not focusing attention on her obvious stammering and untruths. The story became “Oh I hate to see poor Nancy go through this”. Remember that these were the same journalists that called Hillary Clinton names throughout the Democratic Primary. How dare Hillary cry tears of frustration in New Hampshire? But poor Nancy is being attacked by the big bad Republicans. Nancy Pelosi, the pariah of botox bipartisanship. The reality is that “poor Nancy” complicates things for herself even more by calling the CIA a liar. I am sure they will offer negation and she will be challenged. Get ready Nancy and I hope you’ve got back up because Barack Obama is not really known for throwing out life preservers to Obamabots gone overboard.

Charles Krauthammer agrees:

Obamacrat Liberals and Phony Claims of Tea Party Racism April 17, 2009

black-man-tea-party

Uh-oh !Someone should tell this African American tea party participant that the liberals can’t see him.

Not the race card again. Didn’t we have enough of that during the Democratic primaries? For the love of Tin Tin you got Obama in office. When will it ever end????

If the Obama presidency was supposed to put an end to liberals claiming that America is a racist country then so far it has been a spectacular failure.

While perusing the internet I found this lovely question:

Ok, I’m not a racist or anything, but, Atlanta is 90% black people, I’ve been there alot, so how come I don’t see no black people at the tea parties there?.. I’m looking at the news and there’s zero.. I’ve been to Atlanta, and there’s alot of black folks there, but in the news you can’t see them. Try not to say I’m a racist because I’m truly not, I’m just wondering… The tea parties aren’t just for democrats, it’s for everyone.. So, where did all the white people come from? The suburbs?


If you think that sounds stupid then take a look at several answers to the poster’s question:

1. As already stated, the Teabagging thing is very much a GOP/right wing thing, and intended as such.It would get much support from the black community under most circumstances. Given the current president… yeah, not going to happen.

2. The tea bagging parties were ESPECIALLY for Republicans… with Republican ideals. Failed ones. Don’t blame black people for having some sense to stay home.

3. So, your saying that.. that there aren’t black republicans? Wish I was black so I can get some free stuff.

Is it just me or do you any of you notice that since Obama came onto the scene there has been more racial and class division than in other time in recent decades? The Obamacrats call Republicans racist but my ears must deceive me because I have heard more racist remarks from the Democrats than I have ever…EVER heard from Republicans. The tea parties are about calling out big government. Unfortunately I was looking at the tea party footage for the wrong reasons according to the Obamabots, I should have been looking for the black people that weren’t there, and Fox News correspondents that set this tea party stuff on on their own (yeah right).

Here is a photo that an Obamabot described as “a racist tea bagger”

Yep, he looks like a racist to me.

Yep, he looks like a racist to me.

So what exactly is racist about this protester?

Let’s be clear about what racism really is:

This is Racism

This is Racism

Do you understand Obamacrats? Please stop it with your phony claims of racism and race baiting. It is getting so old.

And if you need more proof that people of color were at the tea party – because we do pay our taxes you know Michael Savage (rolls eyes), the take a look at this video of Dallas activist Katrina Pierson at guess what THE DALLAS TEA PARTY. OOOW I SEE PEOPLE OF COLOR. SOMEONE TELL THE OBAMACRATS TO KIDNAP HER.

Seriously though, this is a great speech and as a former child on welfare I applaud Katrina. She is a patriot.

More Media Hypocrisy: Sarah Palin Sells Out…A Fundraiser!!!

Sarah Palin sold out.

No, no not in that way but I am ecstatic that Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) spoke at a Right To Life event in Indiana Thursday. The tickets sold out quickly.
This was Palin’s first fundraising/speaking event in the “lower 48” since the election.
Didn’t you hear about it? Afterall Huff Po reported on it. I am sure we all got that twitter message.
Huff Po reported that Palin went to Indiana to speak at the event and the rest of the article was predictably more Huff Po Liberal Sunshine and Acid Kool Aid about how Sarah is in trouble blah, blah, blah…

From The Huffington Post
Palin To Indiana For Right To Life Dinner As Alaskans Scratch Heads
AP: ANNE SUTTON | April 16, 2009 at 08:42 AM

This week, lawmakers in Alaska are slashing Gov. Sarah Palin’s budget ahead of a Sunday adjournment. Instead of staying in Juneau, Palin plans to attend a partisan fundraiser: a Thursday night county right-to-life dinner in Indiana.

Close to 5,000 people are expected to show up for the event. “We are probably going to be 5 or 6 fold the number we would normally have for a banquet this size,” Vanderburgh County Right To Life Director Mary Ellen Van Dyke said. Palin’s husband Todd and son Trig are traveling with her.

It’s not getting any easier for Palin, who is becoming a more polarizing figure at home while she tries to maintain a national profile from one of the most remote states in the union.

She exasperated Alaska Republican legislative leaders…

Like I said, blah, blah, Huffpo Obamabot liberal filtered news blah, blah… The reader comments are also of the usual Sarah sucks meme.

Huffpo commenter:

I wouldn’t call it obsession, I would call it transfixed; in much the same way as people slow down for a traffic accident. In much the same way we are mostly amazed that some bad driver are given a license; we are completely baffled that Palin could have graduated from incompetent mayor to one of the worst governors in the US and still have enough Chutzpah to continue her tenure.

Oh HuffPo forget to mention that not only was Palin speaking at the Vanderburgh County Right to Life dinner in Evansville, IN, she will also speak Friday morning at a breakfast for S.M.I.L.E., a nonprofit organization for people with family members who have Down syndrome. Did Huff Po mention that Palin’s spokeswoman, Meg Stapleton, said Palin will be taking a “36-hour vacation” to attend the events in Indiana. Palin’s political action committee, SARAH PAC will pay for the travel.

Here is a clip of Gov. Palin’s speech in Indiana where she discussed her response to the news that Trig would have Downs Syndrome:

This fundraiser was a big snazzy dinner where the 2,180 tickets were soooooooooo exorbitantly priced at $34.90!!!!
The 500 overflow tickets that sold out were a cash muncher too at $16.

Now take a look at the story HuffPo ran in March on President Barack Obama’s upcoming fundraiser:

From The Hill:
Tickets for the first fundraiser featuring President Obama are making hotcake sales look slow by comparison.

A source at the Democratic National Committee tells The Hill that $100 tickets for the March 25 event at the Warner Theater in Washington sold out in just 30 minutes, a pace so fast that the DNC is considering boosting the number of $1,000 tickets available to the public.

Hmmm, so the Democratic National Committee (DNC) self-professed “party of the people” wants to raise the price of Obama tickets now that they are nearly broke and need cash. Somehow when Obama and his Kool Aid crack addicted minions made history by breaking campaign fundraising records in 2008, they forgot to share the wealth with the DNC .

So many words come to mind…

hypocrite
