It seems there’s quite a bit of new Barack Obama news, and I might fill up WordPress’ servers if I did a new post for each one. Where to start? Lessee…
First, He warns us that Republicans have been scaring people since 1968 in order to win elections, then he of course goes right out and…scares the olderly folks by telling them John McCain is going to steal their Social Security and make them eat dog food. (Okay, I made the last part up, but that exact scare line has been used against Republicans before)
“Let me be clear, privatizing Social Security was a bad idea when George W. Bush proposed it, it’s a bad idea today,” Obama said. “That’s why I stood up against this plan in the Senate and that’s why I won’t stand for it as president.”
Okay, that is the same Social Security that is already long ago bankrupt, right? The one that just last year alone added $900 bln in new unfunded liabilities? The one that went from 16 people paying in for every one drawing out when I was born, to about 4 to one now, projected to head for about two to one before I even retire? Yeah, we don’t need any reform or anything, let’s just scare old folks so their children and grandchildren can eat the dog food so they don’t have to!
Next, He gets a bit testy about an ad that the Tennessee Republican Party ran, featuring the lovely Mrs Obama, telling them it was ‘unacceptable’, ‘low class’, and that we should ‘lay off my wife’.
Now, Barry, your Lovely Wife Loretta is putting herself out there on the stump, probably as much as you are. What she says on your behalf is fair game. If you don’t want her being brought into the campaign, then don’t bring her into the campaign. Besides, exactly what is in this ad that she didn’t say? Are those not her words, from her own mouth?
Last week, President Bush spoke in front of the Knesset in Israel, saying
“Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along,” the President said to the country’s legislative body, “We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is –- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”
Barack rather quickly took offense, and went on the offensive, even sending out the great international negotiator Jon Cary to lie for him, among others, despite Bush never mentioning Obama’s name, or even implying it was him. One member of the dinosaur media even went so far as to say that What Hitler was demanding was not unreasonable, regarding Czechoslovakia. Indeed, the White House denied Bush was speaking of Obama. Speculation from the gitgo was that Bush was actually referring to Jimmy Carter, who has been playing kissy-face with Hamas recently. Or, he could have been referring to Speaker Pelosi, who made a pilgrimage to Syria last year, to assure President Assad that we meant them no harm. While at the same time, they were busy building a rogue nukular facility in the desert with the Nork’s assistance. Which the Israelis promptly destroyed. Bush could have been speaking in fact, of the Fwench, who seem to be reaching out to Hamas.
Which leads us to his statement that he of course would never negotiate with terrorists, unless of course they are the terrorists leading the leading terrorist group in the world, Iran. Of course, he wanted “all those who have influence with Hezbollah” to “press them to stand down.” That Hezbollah in Lebanon, taking them down into a new civil war. The same Hezbollah who is a proxy for…Iran. The Iranians who are ordering them to cause war on Lebanon, ordered them to make war on Israel, are going to ‘press them to stand down.’ Um hmmmm…and you’re going to go negotiate with Iran, unconditionally, right?
Which leads to the next lil’ fib, in which He claims that we “on the right have distorted and reframed” his views.” and that “…nobody said he would initiate contacts at the presidential level; that requires due preparation and advance work.”
Well, Barack, I think you, among many other politicians, seem to think that there is no such thing as this here Intrawebs Thingy. You know, where things exist forever? First, He said very clearly in last July’s debate, that he would, the NYT confirms this last November, it’s even on His own website!
Speaking of our enemies, he seems to think that nations like Iran, Cuba, North Korea, and Venezuela aren’t ‘serious threats’. So…nations that repeatedly threaten us openly, are rather known for their training of insurrectionist forces in Columbia, Angola, El Salvador, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, and Egypt aren’t a real threat? Let’s ask Israel if they would agree with that assessment. Or the Columbians, et al.
Of course, we can’t forget Sweetiegate, in which he told a Detroit female reporter who couldn’t get an answer to her question from him “Hold on one second, sweetie. We’ll do a press avail, thanks,”.
Which of course, His Followers in the MSM promptly absolved him of any guilt in the matter. Now, do you really think that they would have been quite so forgiving if it were, say, a Republican calling a woman Sweetie?
Then, He seemed to get the facts wrong about Afghanistan, Iraq, and the respective languages spoken while bashing the Iraq war.
You certainly can’t forget the ‘Hamas Hearts Obama’ story, in which the terrorist organization in the Middle East has set up a phone bank to cold call people in America, to urge them to vote for Him. Yes, that’s right. Terrorists are hoping for Obama to win. Now, He claims that He wouldn’t negotiate with Hamas, but they sure do see something in Him they like.
Obama managed to kiss up to the mob, promising them He would call the dogs off the Teamsters, ending years’ worth of scrutiny. The payback for their endorsement of Him, I guess. I guess it’s okay though, since the Teamsters have no problems with corruption, right?
The Planet Is In Peril, and we must all sacrifice, right? I mean, it is for the children you know. Why, just yesterday, He was in Seattle, and told us that
“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.”
This is the Obama who drove a Hemi V8 and a GMC Envoy until charged with hypocrisy, all the while claiming even back in 2006 “the blame for the world’s higher temperature rests on gas guzzling vehicles.” In addition, he seems to be a Learjet Liberal, flitting to fundraisers in a private jet, getting whisked away from the airport in…you got it, eeevillle SUVs. Typical for the Learjet Liberals, reduction of lifestyles is only for me, but not for thee.
There’s the Obama version of the Tuzla Dash, in which He kind of fibs about His reception at a speech on the automobile industry. He claims he was laying down the law to automakers, and they were so offended at this, that ‘nobody clapped’. Just one problem…they did. Repeatedly. Some enterprising soul put a little video together. A compare and contrast, you might say.
How powerful is Obama? He’s ‘been to all 57 states’! He must have done the Time Warp Again and been to the future, in which Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico, and some others are all added on! Now, I’m actually guessing He meant to say 47 or something, except that that doesn’t constitute ‘all’ the states either. But hey, I’m feeling charitable, so let’s do much more for Him than the Left would do for McCain, and write it off to the wear and tear of campaigning ever since he took office in 2005!
I can’t let this go without mentioning the real problem with all these pesky little attacks. It’s….pssstttt…Fox News. And nameless, faceless goons!
“Part of it is because there have been these e-mails that have been sent out very systematically, presumably by various political opponents, although I don’t know who,” he said. “And there are a lot of voters who get their news from Fox News.
Yeah, that’s the ticket! That’s why those bitter, clinging to their guns and religion, typical white folks in places like West Virginia and Kentucky aren’t voting for you! Hey, it might even be the Joooooosss!
Of course, these things are all just ‘distractions’ and off limits just like we can’t call him a liberal, can’t question his toughness on the ‘WoT’, nor mention his far left views on social issues, can’t mention his background in Chicago, either. These things have been laid down to us, and we are not to trespass. The meme that any questioning at all is racism is already going around, and be prepared for it to really ramp up after the convention.
Well, Diary, I guess I’ll close for now. How’s about leaving you with a bit of levity, regarding Him before we go?
