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.

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.

Liberal Moonbats Bite The Hand That Feeds Them August 19, 2009

Ah, don't you just love the smell of mango salsa marinated fish fillets, and liberalism

Ah, don't you just love the smell of mango salsa encrusted fish fillets, and liberalism?

There is much to be wary of in the Odwalla carrot orange juice lately. Moonbats have become restless and are now attacking their most vital food orgasms. Whole Payche- I mean Whole Food’s

Whole Foods Devotees Lash Out at CEO

Customers, Angry Over His Health-Care Views, Share Feelings of Betrayal on Web

Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Whole Foods aficionados who assumed the company’s management was as crunchy as the brand are feeling betrayed.

They have stormed Twitter, Facebook and the blogosphere to vent their rage at John Mackey, the chief executive. In an op-ed column in the Wall Street Journal last week, he argued for health-care savings accounts and declared that health care is not an intrinsic right– ideas with a conservative bent, which made Whole Foods’ liberal customer base go ballistic.

They are even talking about a boycott. And who knows? Maybe some will have to rethink shopping at Wal-Mart. Unions once attacked the retailer’s labor and benefits policies, but Wal-Mart has become the nation’s largest purveyor of organic products and recently espoused a position on health-care reform that is widely considered progressive.

What’s wrong with this picture?

“A lot of people have been paying a premium for the Whole Foods brand for years,” said Mark Rosenthal, a playwright living in Massachusetts who founded the Boycott Whole Foods group a few days ago. It has nearly 14,000 members. “A lot of people are sad to look at this corporation and see that it is just like any other, if not worse.”

Whole Foods spokeswoman Libba Letton said that Mackey was expressing personal opinions in the op-ed and that the company has no official position on the issue. Whole Foods has sent letters to customers apologizing for any offense and created a forum on its Web site to discuss the issue.

The angry Whole Foods backlash has also sent a stream of video hatred directed at CEO John Mackey (Warning: you will need a shower and moonbat rabies shot after watching the following footage)

I have a tip...Don't shop there.

I have a tip...Don't shop there. Take the money you would spend there on organic paper products and pay for some poor woman's mammogram.

If they boycott, where will the moonbats shop for edamame and soy based yacht cleaning products? And what do they hope to accomplish? A message that boycotting is a way to hush up anyone such as Mr. Mackey who has an opinion that differs from your own? Perhaps at this moment in history when public dissent of health care reform is framed by liberals around a series of accusations alleging racism, anti-Semitism and any other term that makes one sound like a plain ol’ flea harboring bigot named Bubba, it is inevitable that the rabid  moonbats – would turn on one of their own.  Much slippage in the aisles is going on in the liberal camp, if you get my drift.

Oh BTW and I have used the term Obamacare, so I am officially far, far, far, far to the right.  I was just saying to my possum Wilbur that it sho’ is mighty fine weather we been havin’ up yonder in Chee-caw-go. I think in a short spell, I will take me a walk up to that thare Whole Foods an git me some sasafrass bark and hemp granola.

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.

Thursday Stitch n’ Bitch: Stars Should Be Seen And Not Heard July 16, 2009

Obama superstar Afrocity has been on the down low lately. I have to take my occasional breaks from the news and Obamatrons.  I recall my grandmother whispering that old saying in my ear, when I was being a bad girl usually because of my snarky mouth:

“Children should be seen and not heard”.

What does it mean exactly?

Children should be well behaved and not speak?

From opposite sides of the remote control, I decided on Tuesday night not to watch anything related to politics.  I would get back to my workout routine. Sweat pants on, iPod and bottled water in hand, I take the elevator to the gym.  Once in the room, there are two other men lifting weights and making guttural sounds. I hate working out in front of others but decided to stay when I saw that the MLB All Star Game was playing on two television sets.

I strapped my legs with the nylon and Velcro 2lbs weights, mounted the treadmill. If I walked through the 4th inning that shoudl be at least 200 calories burned. I would not have to feel guilty about the entire movie theatre sized box of Good & Plenty coated licorice candies I had consumed the day before, or the bowl of strawberry ice cream, or the pizza I had on Saturday.  Taking a a deep breath I set my speed to 4.0 and inclined the treadmill to a steep 4.5.   Although the benefits of working out are amazing, I HATE IT but my 40th birthday is approaching in a few weeks and I want to tone and lose about 5 lbs.  Damn my mother who gave me the thighs with cellulite that I have to  massage every night with Bliss’ “Fat Girl Slim” cream which contains caffeine and seaweed.  Okay I am depressed again, concentrate and watch the damn baseball game.  Nothing like a relaxing workout while watching a ballgame…Until I see Barack Obama’s face. What? @#&!@?  What is he doing on there? Can’t I watch a ballgame with seeing this man? Isn’t it enough that I have to see his face on every magazine in the checkout line? That his name crops into every conversation I have, even with my gynecologist? ARGH.

obama_era Obama is really not our president, he is a rock star. The Obamabots who voted for him fail to admit that his administration is faltering. They don’t care. They just LOVE Barack Obama. Who cares that America is going to hell.

Dick Morris had an interesting column the other day. I know, I know many of my readers do not like Dick Morris because of the things he said about Hillary Clinton but I have to admit that when it comes to Barack Obama, this Dick makes a lot of sense.

Obama’s shifty economics

by Dick Morris

July 14, 2009

Now President Obama says in The Washington Post that he never envisioned that his stimulus package would afford quick relief to the American economy, but would do so only after it had run its two-year course. But when it was passed, Obama sang a different tune, urgently demanding its enactment to speed relief to a sagging economy. He claimed it would “create or save” 600,000 jobs. Now, even as the economy loses 450,000 jobs each month, he pretends that it is a matter of time until the stimulus kicks in.

He now justifies the stimulus package by saying it was adopted to prevent the “collapse” of the economy and the banking systems. But it was really the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), first passed under President Bush, that stopped the banks from going under. At the time of the enactment of the stimulus package, Obama never mentioned that he was counting on it to save the banks

All these shifting justifications are designed to explain why the stimulus package has totally failed to accomplish anything. Not only has it done no good. It has done significant harm by ballooning the deficit, driving up interest rates, creating doubts about the U.S. currency and fanning inflationary fears.

But Obama has paid and will continue to pay dearly for betting on his stimulus package. Because of it, the Bush recession is becoming the Obama recession much faster than it would have had he adopted a more gradual approach to solving economic problems. By jumping in immediately, as he did, in order to increase government spending and pass eight years of Democratic dreams in one day, he made the public expect a solution…

Finally, Obama has laid a trap for himself. Just as the economy is coming out of its recession — in 2010 and 2011 — and he begins to run for reelection, he is going to face massive inflation. The money supply has more than tripled since October of 2008 and is going up each week as the Fed buys Treasury bills and other securities to “monetize the debt” (i.e., give other people money so they can lend it back to the government and charge it interest for doing so). With each new infusion of cash, the problem of avoiding inflation becomes particularly severe. Obama could well lose the elections of 2012 because of the inflation his deficit has created.

I hope that Mr. Morris is correct.  Yes, that is cruel of me to say but I want a president that actually does work.  Stars should be seen on the red carpet, not the oval office. A president should be a leader, not groveling at every opportunity. A president makes things, he does break things and speaking of breaking things Mr. President, you might want to invest in a Plexiglas teleprompter.

Obama’s Media Red-Light District June 24, 2009

Tonight is the big night for President Barack Obama and ABC who will air exclusive coverage of a town hall style meeting on the president’s health care initiative. Such coverage from the White House is unprecedented in American History. Of course there will be no Republicans present i.e. members of the opposition. ABC also refused to sale air time for advertisements of groups offering challenging viewpoints or alternative solutions to Obama’s health care plans.

GOP Criticizes ABC’s Obama “Infomercial”

Posted by Brian Montopoli

This evening President Obama will participate in a town hall forum on health care, which will air exclusively on ABC at 10 p.m. Eastern Time. And Republicans aren’t happy about it.

The Republican National Committee derides the event as an “infomercial.” And a newly-formed group called The Media Fairness Caucus, headed by Texas Republican Congressman Lamar Smith, sent a letter to ABC – one signed by 40 Republican members of Congress – complaining that the network’s decision to air the forum along with accompanying coverage “gives the American people a slanted view” on the health care debate.

“The manner in which the news programming is being presented – at the White House with the President and First Lady and without opposition – is unprofessional and contrary to the journalistic code of ethics to present the news fairly and independently,” the letter says. “This is not a Presidential news conference open to all news outlets. This is an exclusive arrangement from which the President and his viewpoints stand to gain.”

ABC News president David Westin responded with a letter of his own in which he complains that “you have found it appropriate to criticize a program that has not yet aired.”

“Contrary to your assertions, this will not be ‘slanted’ in any way – much less a ‘day-long infomercial’ or ‘in-kind free advertising’ as you allege,” writes Westin. “It will be a thoughtful, respectful, and probing discussion of some of the issues raised by the calls for health-care reform. We will include a variety of perspectives coming from private individuals asking the President questions and taking issue with him, as they see fit.”

Crazy things are beginning to happen with this White House and the media so none of this surprises me. Sounds like a snore fest. If you want to see something more thrilling tonight Bill O’reilly will do battle with Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA) tonight on the O’Reilly Factor of FOX NEWS. 8PM EST.
