Michelle Obama Says, “Let Them Eat Cake!”

Bruce Springsteen, Michelle Obama and...

Well, not in so many words … but actions really do speak so much louder than words. Of course, Michelle Obama is just like her husband. Barack Obama says one thing, which his drive-by-media propaganda machine dutifully reports! And then, he proceeds to do something entirely different, which his drive-by-media propaganda machine never, ever call him on. So Michelle Obama shows up at the Oscars to present the “best movie” award in a dress costing more the two months salary for most Americans and where a bunch of narcissistic, arrogant socialites are given $45,000 (more than the average annual salary of many Americans) gift bags. As Billy Crystal so aptly stated, “Nothing can take the sting out of the world’s economic problems like watching millionaires give each other golden statues.”

Don’t you just love how the “Hollywood élite” look down their collective noses at us and arrogantly spout liberal progressive political maxims at Americans who love their country, and then ask for massive handouts from their pal Obama and his administration to subsidize their next movie? Millions and millions of dollars are given to Hollywood millionaires to help them make more movies, and thus making themselves even more wealthy. And … they want to point at Mitt Romney for being one of the “evil rich”?  Are American voters so stupid they actually buy this crap!?

Did I watch the Oscars … no, I did not! Most of those people make me sick to my stomach!

So while Michelle Obama is out schmoozing with her rich socialite liberal buddies … Barack is enlisting Janet Napolitano, Nancy Pelosi, and other major league liberal liars to run around screaming the world is coming to an end because of sequestration (which by the way, was Obama’s brain child). It is hilariously and yes, sadly, funny! Most Americans know we need to cut federal spending! But, the first time there is actually a chance that a little cutting may actually happen … the government screams doom, gloom, and the end of civilization as we know it … and the Obama’s loyal media lap-dogs gleefully spread the “official nonsense” around. And, of course, the cool aid drinkers dutifully join in Obama’s next manufactured national catastrophe and they begin their moaning, and wailing, and gnashing their teeth!

Meanwhile, back in the real world that most of us try to live in … here is the truth about the proposed sequestration numbers. It is not even a cut … it is barely a slowing of growth of federal spending!

I find it very interesting that The Tennessean, a long time supporter of Democratic candidates and former employer of Al Gore, should come out endorsing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. The headline for their endorsement reads, “Time For Another Change.”

 

Hallerin Hilton Hill, on his morning talk radio program yesterday gave a much better answer to the young man who asked the opening question at the second presidential debate:

 

Mr. President, Governor Romney, as a 20-year-old college student, all I hear from professors, neighbors and others is that when I graduate, I will have little chance to get employment. What can you say to reassure me, but more importantly my parents, that I will be able to sufficiently support myself after I graduate?

 

I loved Hallerin’s 11 – point answer to the student’s question.  A caller added a 12th point.  I can’t remember all of them, but I will try and list some of them here as best I can remember:

 

  1. First , get the heck away from the negativity of those professors, neighbors, and others.  Who the heck are they to tell you that you cannot make it?  Stand on your own two feet and decide that your future depends on your efforts … not their negative perceptions.  Surround yourself with positive, supportive professors, neighbors, and others.
  2. Learn to communicate!  Be confident, shake hands, smile, look people in the eyes. Learn to talk like a thinking, educated adult.  I have never been to a job interview were I could sit there and text back and forth with the interviewer!  (Caller)
  3. Be excellent!  Always do your best work. Never be satisfied with doing any less than your best!
  4. Study now … party later.  If 50% of colleges students cannot find jobs after graduation, be sure you are part of the 50% who do!
  5. Pick a career-orientated program.  ORNL needs engineers!  They are importing them from India and China.  Get an engineering degree.  A degree in Women’s Studies, African-American History, Music Appreciation, or Hindu Underwater Basket Weaving, while possibly quite politically correct and popular with liberals, will not provide you with much of a chance at finding a good job!
  6. Dress well!  Look like a professional.  Dave Ramsey puts it like this … “Dress your wage!”

 

These few points I can remember … sound like some pretty sage advice to me!

 

 

 

Well Michelle … Are You Proud Now?

Michelle Obama

Are you proud now?

Dear Mrs. Obama:

You must be really proud!  Your husband has added $6 trillion in new debt since taking office. Gas prices are now over $4 per gallon on average.  Unemployment has been holding steady over 8% for 4 years (higher if you use the actual numbers), with over 23 million Americans unemployed. There are 47 million are on food stamps. Our U.S. Ambassador was just raped and killed by muslims that your husband has been trying to embrace for 4 years and the middle east is in flaming  chaos.

I read some of the letter written to you by Beck Smith, where she says:

I am also ashamed that the first family sees the Presidency as a lottery they won (how many vacations do you need in a year, really?)  I have not had a job in two years, and our family would love to have a vacation in Europe, just one, someday.  Yet your family has taken over seventeen vacations, at my last count, on the taxes people like me have paid.  So, in effect, the middle class of America has been paying for you and your entourage of secretaries and secret service personnel to run around the world, shopping and sightseeing, when we cannot afford to go visit relatives who live in another state.  Your husband’s policies have not created any jobs worth talking about, but they have kept businesses from creating jobs.  Even a low-paying job would allow us the luxury of going to visit family.

She make a pretty good point … doesn’t she?  Well, I know you won’t see it that way!

Are you proud of how the left-wing media selectively edits video to make Romney look bad, then screams about it for a few days, or at least until they are  caught and forced to admit that what they were screaming about was in fact – not at all what Romney said.    Has this happened 5, 6, 7, or 8 times now?  Do we have the most corrupt media in the history of our Nation or what?

It is difficult for some to understand how your husband, a  president with the most failure-ridden foreign and domestic policy in modern history, still has 47 percent of the American vote (according to the latest polls).  But the answer is actually quite simple. Your husband does have the best propaganda machine since Adolph Hitler.  Since 2007, your husband has been building a “cult of personality,” very much like the infamous fascist leaders of recent history. That doesn’t mean he’s a fascist; it doesn’t mean that he’s Hitler,  or Mussolini, or Stalin, or Castro.  However, his semiotics and iconography are far more in line with those of a fascist dictatorship than a vibrant republic.

Cases in point:

O - merica

Ronald Reagan never hijacked the American flag for his own iconography. Neither did George W. Bush. or Bill Clinton.  Only your husband has utilized the visual methodologies of Hitler’s propaganda machine to forward his political campaign.  The same day that your husband’s campaign decided to unleash their newest Obama flag, Jessica Alba, one of your husband’s elitist Hollywood acolytes, issued a letter to his campaign followers urging them to pledge allegiance to Barack Obama.

Your husband posted this picture on his website:

Pledge Allegiance to Obama

I pledge Allegiance to Barack Obama …

Sorry folks!  This is not America!  This is not Liberty and Freedom for All!  This is simply put … creepy.

Your husband’s vision for this great nation is about as un-American as you can get.  But, despite his hatred of all things American, I am sure you and he both want him to get re-elected!  You both certainly do enjoy the lifestyle … the endless world vacations, the countless rounds golf,  the parties with Beyoncé and Jay-Z, skipping security briefings to hobnob with the who’s who in liberal elitist land!  All paid for by struggling American taxpayers!  Now .. that is a pretty sweet deal!

Your husband lamented on nationwide TV that he cannot rule by authoritative fiat and simply bypass Congress and the American people.  He actually stated that despite laws enacted by Congress and the American people, he will do whatever he wants!  Your husband has presided over an almost complete overthrow of the Constitution.  It is a clear manifestation of high treason against the United States of America, but of course your liberal lap-dog media will not point this out and instead makes excuses for what amounts to a socialist coup d’etat.  And  the cool aid drinkers are so caught up in the “free Obama money” they think they are going to get … they just don’t care.

Mitt Romney was actually  right!  Approximately 47% of American voters are so drunk on the socialist cool aid, they will not vote for Romney no matter what he does or says!  They want their entitlements whether the country can afford them or not!  So what if America goes bankrupt and is financially destroyed!  So what if our children and grandchildren are left with a crushing debt … just so they get their “free Obama money.”  I mean … who are we to expect folks to have to actually work for what they get when they can just simply vote to steal it from somebody else!  So … your husband, despite his horrible track record, treasonous activities, endless lies, and anti-American ideology … might actually get re-elected!

Obama destroys U.S. Constitution

And you, Michelle, will have helped bring down the worlds greatest nation … that shining beacon on the hill that brought hardworking LEGAL immigrants to this country following their dreams … a glorious experiment in individual independence and human freedom … a dream you, Michelle, personally helped destroy.

Then … we can all be happy,  mindless, little worker bees … pledging allegiance to One Nation Under Socialism!  We can live our boring but politically correct and equally mediocre lives; contented with whatever you, your husband, and his followers deem we should have!  Chicken McNuggets for all!

Then, Michelle, you can be oh so very proud!

A Few Random Rantings

So how many radical Muslims in Egypt and Libya actually saw this “insult to Mohammed” YouTube video? I mean … seriously … most of them don’t even have chairs … never mind internet access!  Why did the State Department apologize for America‘s Freedom of Speech before the riots and murders even occurred?  Why did Obama’s Ambassador to Egypt, Ann Patterson, forbid the U.S. Marines tasked with securing and protecting our Embassy to carry live ammo in their weapons.  Why wasn’t security beefed up at our Embassies in the Middle East on the anniversary of 9/11?  Isn’t it a strange coincidence that the riots resulting from this  video nobody even saw … until after the State Department apologized for it and radical Muslims attacked U.S. property and murdered U.S. citizens … happened on 9/11/2012?  Isn’t it really strange that Obama does not have time to attend a daily White House security briefing (according to White House records) or talk with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, but has plenty of time to party with Beyoncé’ and Jay-Z?  How many American’s would have stormed the Egyptian Embassy and murdered the Ambassador and his staff because a YouTube video was made by someone, “possibly an Egyptian,” portraying Jesus Christ in a less than flattering manner?

Mitt Romney had the only proper response to this latest assault on American property, the burning of its Flag, the replacement of it with the Al Qaeda flag, the murdering of its citizens, and the confused apologetic response of the Obama administration!  We know the liberal media will always support Obama and excoriate Romney … they are nothing but a gaggle of Obama supporters masquerading as news reporters!  But where was his support from his fellow republicans?  We know where RINO John McCain stands …   but where was John Boehner?  Is the republican elite really that afraid of Obama and his liberal media lap-dog?  Have they not even got any “collective” balls?  This is why, while I support Romney and will send him money, I cannot support the Republican party in general!  I do wish I could … but they need to man-up first!

You would think if a Cabinet-level Secretary violated federal law it would make the news, right?  Well, it sure would if she was a conservative republican!  It seems not however, … if she is a member of Obama’s cabinet.  Kathleen Sebelius did just that and the liberal media didn’t even say a peep.  The U.S. Office of Special Counsel informed President Obama yesterday that it  found his controversial Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius had  violated the federal Hatch Act back in February at a gala event for the Human Rights Campaign.  The Hatch Act forbids federal employees from engaging in partisan political  activity and Sebelius did just that in off-the-cuff remarks as the keynote  speaker in which she implored attendees to reelect Barack Obama!  Go figure!!

Michelle Says: Being President … Reveals Who You Are!”

She is so correct in that.  I could not agree more.  I just can’t believe she actually said the at the Democratic National Convention!

Just look at a few of Obama’s broken campaign promises:

  • Cut the deficit (Obama called Bush unpatriotic for running a $4 trillion deficit … what does that say about his $16 trillion?)
  • Transparent government
  • No more pork

So where are we now ….

Administration                                              Bush                                       Obama

Unemployment   Rate                                   7.8%                                      8.35

Median Income                                              54,983                                   50,964

Gas Price Per Gallon                                     1.84                                        3.82

National Debt                                                 10.6 T                                    16 T

So, let’s see … to date 16 so-called green companies like Solyndra, have gone belly up after receiving free “Obama Money;”  costing taxpayers billions of dollars.

Now that’s hope and change we can all get behind … don’t you think?

No wonder Obama cronies are fighting the proposed Voter ID laws tooth and nail … they really do need North Carolina’s 30,000+ registered  dead voters to vote for him (I understand some of these dead voters actually have voted).  I mean, they even had to dig up a dead guy to bash Romney at their convention!

The Left Aready “Hard at Work” Vilifying Paul Ryan!

Official portrait of Congressman .

You can tell when liberals are worried!  They start arrogantly pontificating about that which scares them and proceed to attack it with all the vicious smear tactics available to them.  Look at what they did to Sarah Palin!  Judging by the vicious smear campaign waged against Governor Palin, they must really be scared to death of Paul Ryan!  Obama’s liberal media lap-dogs, left-wing blogs, Bill Maher, etc; are all jumping on the “murder Paul Ryan” bandwagon!  And … we haven’t even gotten to Joy Baher, Rosanne Barr, or the View yet!

I found this great article by Charles C.W. Cook, who writes for the National Review.  I enjoyed reading it and I believe he has a very accurate grasp of the situation at hand.  I included the article here in its entirety.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

The American songwriter and comedian Tom Lehrer once wrote that he didn’t “want to satirize George Bush,” but instead “to vaporize him.” Given Lehrer’s talent for satire, this represented something of a regression. Nonetheless, he was in good company, for, in the world of politics, “vaporization” is a popular choice.

The preference for annihilation over disapprobation has rarely been so luminously on display as during this week. Since Mitt Romney announced his nomination of Paul Ryan for the vice presidency, the House Budget Committee chairman has been metamorphosed into the devil, and a phalanx of those freshly diagnosed with Ryan Derangement Syndrome has been released into the unsuspecting public.

Chief among this merry band of hysterics is Esquire’s Charles P. Pierce. Pierce has led the charge against Ryan since Saturday morning’s disclosure, christening the congressman the “zombie-eyed granny-starver,” a “murderer of opportunity,” a “political coward,” and, sarcastically, one presumes, the “Pericles of Janesville.” As Pierce breathlessly explains, Ryan is not merely a man with a differing view of the role of the federal government and a good-faith, if controversial, plan to secure the future, but

an authentically dangerous zealot. He does not want to reform entitlements. He wants to eliminate them. He wants to eliminate them because he doesn’t believe they are a legitimate function of government. He is a smiling, aw-shucks murderer of opportunity, a creator of dystopias in which he never will have to live. This now is an argument not over what kind of political commonwealth we will have, but rather whether or not we will have one at all, because Paul Ryan does not believe in the most primary institution of that commonwealth: our government.

As well there should be, there will be criticism as long as there is politics; and, certainly, one would not expect the Left to like Paul Ryan very much. For starters, Ryan has long had the gauche temerity to observe — in public, no less — that all is not rosy in America’s fiscal future. In doing so, he seems determined to play Senator Seneca to President Obama’s Nero, and it is for this, as much as anything else, that he has carved out his role as Enemy No. 1 of the progressive Left. Those who believe that entitlements run on good intentions will always hate men who come armed with spreadsheets, especially when those spreadsheets neatly explode the myth that all of America’s problems can be solved by increasing taxes on the rich. But Pierce’s hyperbole transcends mere disagreement, as does his dismissal of all those who dissent as “gobshites.” Instead, he seeks to remove Paul Ryan — and his ideas — from polite conversation.

Language such as this is not new, even if Pierce’s is saltier than usual. Descriptions of impending “dystopias” are trotted out every time that a long-term conservative plan is posited. Thanks to Joe Biden’s plagiarism, Neil Kinnock’s famous warning was played on both sides of the Atlantic:

If Margaret Thatcheris re-elected as prime minister on Thursday, I warn you. I warn you that you will have pain — when healing and relief depend upon payment. I warn you that you will have ignorance — when talents are untended and wits are wasted, when learning is a privilege and not a right. I warn you that you will have poverty — when pensions slip and benefits are whittled away by a government that won’t pay in an economy that can’t pay. I warn you that you will be cold — when fuel charges are used as a tax system that the rich don’t notice and the poor can’t afford.

As a rule, delirious warnings such as these typically represent better literature than prognostication. In reality, the tough choices made by Mrs. Thatcher in England and the Reagan/Bush administrations in the United States did not create an “economy that can’t pay,” but one that did. As a result of the tough love of conservatives in the 1980s, the very social programs that Kinnock and Biden warned were threatened with extinction were provided with the revenues on which they rely — for a time, at least. On the left, this is the truth that dare not speak its name.

For good measure, Pierce has also exploited Ryan’s lack of foreign-policy experience, deftly linking Paul Ryan to Ronald Reagan, Elliott Abrams, and other “zombie-eyed nun-killers” — all of whom, he claims, “winked at the rape and murder of American churchwomen in Central America.” Maybe, Pierce suggests,

during a break at his next foreign-policy briefing, Paul Ryan, devout Catholic, can ask his primary foreign-policy mentor whether the guy’s feelings about gunning down archbishops in the middle of mass have evolved over the years.

The not-so-subtle implication: Ryan’s Catholicism is dangerous.

Not to be outdone on the religion front, in Time, Erika Christakis spent her two cents knocking Ryan’s piety. “Jesus’ teachings regarding wealth are nowhere to be found in Ryan’s budget proposal,” she averred. Why? Because,

as near as we can tell, Jesus would advocate a tax rate somewhere between 50% (in the vein of “If you have two coats, give one to the man who has none”) and 100% (if you want to get into heaven, be poor). Mostly, he suggested giving all your money up for the benefit of others. And Jesus made no distinction between the deserving and undeserving poor; his love and generosity applied to all.

Aha! Paul Ryan believes in low taxes; ergo, Paul Ryan is not a good Christian. Theology is a complex matter, and complex matters are subject to much legitimate debate. What tax rate Jesus would have advocate eludes minds greater than Christakis’s. But it is somewhat remarkable that at no point in her piece does she cite anything Jesus said about government to back up her argument. Many Christians — Paul Ryan included — would presumably argue that they are not permitted to subcontract their personal obligations to their fellow man to the government, let alone force others to uphold such obligations. Many non-religious people would agree with this conception of virtue, too. But this is an irrelevance. The purpose of Christakis’s column is to provide a vehicle that allows her to reach her conclusion, that the Ryan plan is “not noblesse oblige,” but “cruelty.”

Over at Salon, Joan Walsh spent 1,000 words contriving an argument that, amazingly enough, concurs with her upcoming book, What’s the Matter with White People — Paul Ryan is white and hates “the other”! — and simultaneously slams Ryan for “fakery”:

The man who wants to make the world safe for swashbuckling, risk-taking capitalists hasn’t spent a day at economic risk in his entire life.

Walsh goes on to allege that Ryan is the “pampered scion of a construction empire.” To anyone familiar with Ryan’s biography, this is absurd enough on its face, but, arguendo, let’s pretend that it’s true for a moment and also take into account the corresponding complaint that Ryan has spent his entire adult life in government. Does this automatically render him incorrect on federal budgeting matters as Walsh implies? Milton Friedman used to ask members of his audiences who accused him of never having been poor whether there was anyone among them “who is going to say that you don’t want a doctor to treat you for cancer unless he himself has had cancer”? Walsh’s cheap tu quoque deserves to be dismissed to the sound of the laughter that used to greet Friedman’s rejoinder.

In fact, her whole piece does. To get an impression of how deep the derangement against Paul Ryan runs, consider that the first grievance Walsh includes is that as a young man Ryan chose to go “to Miami University of Ohio, paying twice as much tuition as an Ohio resident would have,” the problem apparently being that “the in-state University of Wisconsin system (which I attended) apparently wasn’t good enough for Ryan.” In-state tuition wasn’t good enough for President Obama either, and in-country tuition didn’t satisfy Bill Clinton, but neither of those appear to vex Walsh. Why?

At The Daily Beast, Michael Tomasky interpreted the pick as evidence that he was correct about Mitt Romney being a “wimp” all along:

Paul Ryan? Really? It’s a stunning choice. A terrible one too. By making it, Mitt Romney tells America that he is not his own man and hasn’t even the remotest fleeting desire to be his own man. He is owned by the right wing. Did I write a couple of weeks ago that Romney was insecure? Well — Q.E.D.

That’s convenient, then.

If we remain on this course, the wheelchair will reach the cliff without any need for Paul Ryan’s involvement. Sure, Ryan’s plan is not the only way of dealing with the looming crisis. But, as Timothy Geithner admitted, the administration does not have one at all. “What we do know,” he told Ryan in February, “is we don’t like yours.” With this statement, Geithner confirmed what many had long suspected: The administration is terrified of reality.

Paul Ryan has volunteered himself as the face of that reality, and he is going to suffer a bright spotlight as a result, especially having been pushed even further into national prominence. The Left has evidently concluded that if it can vaporize Paul Ryan, it can vaporize his ideas. Time will tell if they are correct, but, regardless, economic gravity — and not hyperbole — will have the last laugh.

I would just ask voters to get beyond the media hype and hate-speech delivered up in heaping helpings by the progressive liberal left.

Instead … think for yourself!  Get the facts.   Do some honest research yourself!  Check voting records!  Read ObamaCare!  Actually read Ryan’s budget proposal …  it does not “murder” medicare.  It saves it.  It changes nothing for those already on Medicare!  It just gives younger folks severl options in the future … including continuing with the plan as it stands right now!  On the contrary … Obama has already cut $750 million from Medicare to fund ObamaCare.  How is he saving it?   Maintaining the status quo will certainly cause medicare and social security to fail … with no help from anyone!   Even Tim Geithner admitted Obama’s administration does not have any plan!!  They just do not like Ryan’s plan … because it preserves individual choice.

“Hope and Change” has turned into “Attack and Blame!”   Obama and his cronies live in some sort of utopian fantasy land where they live like kings while everyone else is happily living lives of mediocrity … suckling at the teat of a bloated central government! It is time for some real change … based on common sense, sound economic principles, and the ability to make the needed tough decisions … rather than pandering to bundlers and buying votes with new unsustainable entitlement programs.

Romney v. Obama: A Comparison and Contrast!

Mitt Romney at one of his presidential campaig...

You can’t do anything without the government’s help?  Really??

Obama’s campaign team and all the cool-aid drinking, uber-loyal Obama-zombies are crying foul; claiming Romney and his campaign are taking Obama’s ridiculous comments from last Friday out of context. That’s fine!  They actually sound even worse “in context!”  They clearly show Obama’s disdain for hard working Americans, entrepreneurship, and a free society!   They reveal Obama true thoughts, his motivation, and establish his identity as the communist/socialist ideologue he truly is!  Obama’s anti-American comments were wrong, no matter how you look at them.

Let’s take a look at Obama’s words … in full context:

We’ve already made a trillion dollars’ worth of cuts. We can make some more cuts in programs that don’t work, and make government work more efficiently…We can make another trillion or trillion-two, and what we then do is ask for the wealthy to pay a little bit more …

There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me, because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t -look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something – there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business. you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.

Americans have always argued, fought, and WORKED together.  Because we wanted to … as free men and women … not by government decree!  And, we all certainly appreciate the essential services provided by the government.  Things like roads, bridges, dams, and protection from our enemies are all essential to the quality of life in America.  The questions that need to be asked and honestly answered are:

How much of that does the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT actually provide?

How well do they do it?

How is all of this paid for?

This liberal leftist mantra that business owners (aka “the rich”) aren’t paying their fair share for all this essential stuff we taxpayers pay for ( like roads, bridges, dams, <ummm … Obama seems to be eliminating the “common defense” part>, etc.) is another Obama lie designed to solidify and energize his power base – the true free-loaders in our society.  Contrary to leftist dogma, the “rich” pay a good deal more than their fair share.

(This graphic was made by the great @PoliticalMath who you should all be following on Twitter.)

According to a post on The Right Sphere, this is why we never actually hear Obama or any of his leftwing cronies put an actual number on what they think is a “fair share.” This is because to free-loaders, “fair share” simply means “more than they’re already paying”  because free-loaders like someone else paying for their stuff.

Based on the CBO’s own numbers, the people paying the lion’s share for all these things Obama claims the government did … are actually the very people Obama is blaming.  So truthfully, Mr. Obama, Americans did, in fact, “build that” too.  The real free-loaders are the folks who drive on those roads, cross those bridges, go to those schools, swim in those lakes, enjoy that air conditioning; and then demand a free check every month, free education, free health care, free food, free cell phones, and who then … do not have to even be looking for a job, receiving job training, or drug or alcohol rehab to qualify for their free “Obama” money!

Obama has, at last, revealed his government-centric view of the world.  In Obama’s world view, the government is the innovator and people simply do what the government instructs them to do. It’s profoundly un-American. This country became a great nation because of the ideals upon which it was founded: Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.  And I mean the true happiness that results from successfully fulfilling oneself as a free individual … and not the amassing of material stuff!  Obama world view sees everyone dutifully performing their assigned task and being happy with the reward distributed to them by their benevolent rulers.   THAT IS NOT MY AMERICA!!  America is free people, free thinking, and free enterprise.  I will fight to protect my America … Obama only apologizes for it!

Let’s contrast that with some “in context” quotes from Mitt Romney’s recent speech in Pennsylvania:

And so I see that entrepreneurial spirit and that innovativeness of the American people and our willingness to work hard in whatever role we have and to lift and to improve our lot and to improve the lot of the enterprises we work in—I see that as driving this economy to be the most powerful in the history of the Earth. It has already; it will again. The course we’re on right now [Obama’s course] is foreign to us. It changes America. This is a vote for what kind of America we’re going to have, and for me I vote for freedom and free people.

Let me just end with this thought: this is an important choice. This is a defining choice. This is a choice about what America’s going to be. Not just for the next few years but for a century. This is a choice which will determine what kind of future our kids are going to have. And, in fact, it also determines what kind of future the world’s going to have. America plays an unusual role in the world—I think we understand that. Some in some circles tend to brush that aside. But those that have fought in world wars and other conflicts recognize the greatness of America and our unique role in the history of the earth.

We call them heroes. I want to express appreciation to heroes proved in liberating strife; who more than self their country loved, and mercy more than life. Could our veterans please raise their hands and members of the active duty armed services? Thank you.

I was in Great Britain some months ago and met with Tony Blair, and then with David Cameron, and with other leaders of the government there, and one said this to me: he said, “You know Mitt, if you’re lucky enough to be elected President of the United States and you travel around from country to country, and to their capitals; you will undoubtedly have rehearsed for you all the things they think America is doing wrong. But please don’t ever forget this: the one thing we all fear the most is a weak America.”

American strength, strength in our values, strength in our homes, strength in our economy, strength in our military is essential to the world.  It is the best ally for peace.

And let me assure you that dividing America, and attacking success and minimizing the achievement and accomplishment of entrepreneurs of all kinds—that does not make a stronger America. Believing in America, meaning believing in those principles upon which this nation was founded; and I do. I will keep those principles aloft. We will fight for them. We will keep America the hope of the earth. Together we will bring back the strength that provides a bright future for us and for our children. Thank you so very much.

Nuff said!

Just a Few Tidbits of Truth and Wisdom

Tagged...OBAMA

Let’s start with a few Tweets that made me chuckle, think, or throw up my hands in exasperation!

Kevin Eder@keder

Why are Democrats so defensive about record food stamp participation under Obama? I thought food stamps stimulate the economy!

Kevin Eder@keder

If Dems really believed food stamps were good economic stimulus, they wouldn’t call U racist 4 pointing out that there’s record enrollment.

Daxton Brown@daxtonbrown

Democrats are the party of legal illegals, abortion, no-ID vote fraud, gay marriage, national bankruptcy (see California). A freak party.

W.J. Walker@walkew03

@Geri4Liberty How do you fight drug cartels with bean bags? Who ever made those rules R incompetent. Just like the rule if they see guns RUN?

Ξ BLACK REPUBLICAN Ξ@blackrepublican

FACT: Today, July 9, 1868, Republicans passed the 14th Amendment to confer citizenship to Blacks. Democrats opposed it. http://youtu.be/KWG8AcCty_I

Just a Quick Note:

I still am amazed at the hold the Democratic Party has on so many black Americans!  Remember when Obama stated he would hold his accomplishments so far as president against those of Lyndon B. Johnson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.  Well, if Obama wants to compare himself to LBJ  … that’s actually pretty accurate!  LBJ was one of the most corrupt (and racist) presidents America ever elected.  Here are a few quotes by the famous Democrat, LBJ (who Obama admires so much):

Austin, Texas May 22, 1948 quoted in Quotations from Chairman LBJ, Simon and Schuster, NY 1968

“This civil rights program about which you have heard so much is a farce and a sham–an effort to set up a police state in the guise of liberty. I am opposed to that program. I fought it in the Congress. It is the province of the state to run its own elections. I am opposed to the anti-lynching bill because the Federal Government has no business enacting a law against one kind of murder than another … [And] if a man can tell you who you must hire, he can tell you who not to employ. I have met this head on.”   ~Lyndon B. Johnson

A few more gems:

“These negros, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they’ve never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness”  ~ Lyndon B. Johnson

“I’ll have those n%$^#s voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”  ~ Lyndon B. Johnson

And even as LBJ was being praised by liberals for his appointment of Thurgood Marshall to the Supreme Court, behind closed doors LBJ’s cynical brand of “identity politics” became clear.  As presidential historian Robert Dallek recounts, LBJ explained his decision to a staff member by saying:

“”Son, when I appoint a nigger to the court, I want everyone to know he’s a nigger.” ~ Lyndon B. Johnson

But I digress … back to the Tweets:

Has Obama been caught in misrepresentation of the truth? 

 

Our Offshoring President

July 10, 2012 10:23 A.M.
 
 

Off-shoring jobs is wrong, right? That’s the whole theme of the Obama campaign’s attacks against Mitt Romney.

And Obama is in the clear on this, because he doesn’t run a company that uses foreign companies to provide services that American workers could provide…

Er, wait. What if we applied the same standard to the federal government?

In the print edition of the Washington Post yesterday (but not at WashingtonPost.com).

The Russian government more than doubled its U.S. contracts last year by providing helicopters for Afghanistan and rides to the International Space Station.

Companies run by the Russian government received $792 million in direct federal awards in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, compared with $342 million the year before. They were among 30 prime vendors based outside the United States ranked in a Bloomberg Government study of the largest 200 federal vendors in fiscal 2011. Those contractors — including Rome-based Finmeccanica SpA and Russian arms trader Rosoboronexport — attracted almost $29 billion in direct awards, about 8.6 percent of the top 200 total of $338 billion, according to the study.

…The United States retired its shuttle fleet last year and now relies on countries including Russia to ferry astronauts and supplies to the International Space Station. The Space Agency’s awards rose 21 percent from $341 million in 2010 to $414 million the next year.

…Other foreign companies on the top 200 list included holding company Finmeccanica, whose units received $1.3 billion in direct awards last year for products including military aircraft components; oil vendor BP, with $1.4 billion; and Amsterdam-based military food supplier Supreme Foodservice, with $2 billion.

So President Obama, head of an administration that paid foreign companies almost $29 billion for services like food, gas, and space travel last year is attacking Romney for “offshoring…” when FactCheck.org declared, ” we found no evidence to support the claim that Romney — while he was still running Bain Capital — shipped American jobs overseas.”

So, just to clarify on the amount of business contracts each candidate has sent to foreign and overseas companies:

President Obama: Almost $29 billion.

Mitt Romney: $0.

I guess the Truth Hurts

Rush: Obama Having a “Dictator’s Wet Dream!”

Rush Limbaugh Cartoon by Ian D. Marsden of mar...

We all now Rush Limbaugh is no stranger to controversy, but his statements on Monday statements have sent Media Matters readers into a crazed feeding frenzy and inspired all manner of truly enlightened commentary from the liberal media.

Rush commentated on Obama‘s bypassing Congress by “Imperial Fiat” to stop young illegal immigrants from being deported by saying, “So once again we see which side Obama comes down on, in the question of whether [we are] a country with the rule of law, or the rule of man.  With Obama, it’s not the rule of law.  He is implementing law that the Congress defeated, as in the legalization of the amnesty for 800,000 young illegals– Congress defeated that, the Dream Act.”

And, truthfully, that is exactly what Obama did.  Do you remember American Government or Social Studies in elementary school?  The Legislature (Congress) passes the laws and the Executive (the President) enforces the laws.  I guess they do not teach that anymore!  Well … at least not in Obama’s world; nor does his government follow that Constitutional principle.  Now … if the Legislature doesn’t pass a law Obama like … he creates it by “Imperial Fiat;” and if the Legislature passes a law he doesn’t like …. he simply decrees it will not be enforced!  So much for co-equal branches of government, checks and balances, and democracy!  Say hello to dictatorship! Until this point, Rush was simply stating facts ….

But … then Rush uttered the phrase that really drove the Obama lap-dog media into a lather!  Rush said, “It‘s a dictator’s wet dream to do what Obama is doing.  If he doesn’t agree with the law, voila, it’s no longer enforced.  It may as well not even exist.  That’s who he is, folks!”

Now, when you compare this phrase to some of Bill Maher’s liberal hate speech utterances about Sarah Palin and her family,

Or those of MSNBC‘s Lawrence O’Donnell (Did anyone tell O’Donnell that his buddy, Harry Reid, is a Mormon):

“Mormonism was created by a guy in upstate New York in 1830 when he got caught having sex with the maid and explained to his wife that God told him to do it. Forty-eight wives later, Joseph Smith’s lifestyle was completely sanctified in the religion he invented to go with it. Which Mitt Romney says he believes.”

Or Al Sharpton’s comments:

“White folks was [sic] in caves while we was building empires…. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it,”

Jesse Jackson’s comments on “Hymie Town” or that “conservatives are apartheid nazis,”

Keith Oberman vicious comments about Crystal Palin, Britt Hume, Michelle Malkin,

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews fantasizing about killing Rush Limbaugh (while Obama sends a chill up his leg),

Sandra Bernhard imagining her friends gang raping Sarah Palin and calling Crystal Palin a hooker on the Joy Behar Show,

Joy Behar saying “This B*tch, Sharron Angle, Is Going to Hell,”

and MSNBC’s Ed Shultz wanting to “rip out Cheney’s heart and lick it around;”

Rush’s comment seems to be pretty mild …. in comparison!  But, hey, liberals never let the facts interfere with a good story!

And, of course, the immediate response from the liberal left was perfect … and so very typical.  No facts, counter-points,  or legitimate argument contrary to the point Rush was making (because there really aren’t any … Rush is Right); just typical liberal personal attacks and name calling.  It is sad to think the future of America is in the hands of people who thing these are opposing points in an argument:

  • One Media Matters commentator asked, “If he’s such a dictator, why is he letting a d*ck like you stay on the radio, Rush?”
  • Another wrote: “See, here’s a subject Fats is an expert on. He often has wet dreams about being a dictator. A dictator on an island filled with nothing but teenaged Dominican boys…”
  • And, yet another, who likely did not listen to Limbaugh’s explanation commented, nor has ever read the Constitution of the United States quipped, “So, the Constitution of the United States is a ‘dictator’s wet dream’?”

Limbaugh clarified that he didn’t say this in a jocular manner.  That fact is that, if Obama can simply decide which laws he will enforce or obey and which he won’t;  what does prevent Obama from deciding, for example, that he doesn’t like the 22nd amendment (which limits presidents to only two terms) and simply decides it will no longer be enforced?

Liberals will snort and and gaze down at you over their up-turned noses and say:

Come on Rush, there’s no way Obama would ever dispense with elections…

There’s no way Obama would ever not enforce immigration law…

No way Obama would ignore the Constitution and just write a health care law that basically pees all over it

Of course He wouldn’t!

Rush then asked,  “What if we started obeying laws on that [basis]?  If the president of the United States can choose to enforce or not enforce law because he likes them or doesn’t like them, what about us?  What if we disagree with the speeding law?…What if we don’t like paying income tax, because frankly, I hate it.  What if I just decide, screw it!”

“But of course, we don’t have that ability,” Limbaugh concluded.

I would say we do!  That was the whole idea behind the American Revolution!!

A Flash of Stupidity in a Lifetime of Ineptitude!

Deficit and debt increases 2001–2009. Gross de...I am so relieved that the Private sector is doing so well.  I must have missed it.  Maybe because I was worring about my declining income vs. soaring expenses.  Silly me!

It seems, at least according to the Anointed One, that it is the public sector that is doing so poorly.  Obama tells us that States simply do not have the “flexibility” (translation: “the ability to print and/or borrow endless sums of money”) that the Obama regime has.  So, I guess then Obama is suggesting that all we have to do is let States print their own money and/or borrow money from the Chinese (just like Obama’s administration does) and the public sector woes will soon be over!  At least, that is, until each state is $15 trillion in debt and therefore files for bankruptcy … or request a federal bailout!  This is the positively brilliant fiscal policy espoused by our peerless leader, Emperor Obama!  I guess he figured this out between the 16th and 17th holes during his last round of golf.

In a recent speech, we hear Obama still trying to blame George W. Bush for the astronomical deficit in this country.  Of course, this is after three and a half years of his polices; two years of which he controlled both Houses of Congress.  He passed his bailouts, his “shovel ready” porkulous bill, ObamaCare, and gave billions to now bankrupt “green energy” companies run by his cronies (oops, I mean election campaign contribution bundlers), but it is still Bush’s fault.  It defies reason no matter how you look at it!!  Of course, facts don’t matter to his left-wing media machine who dutifully spew forth his rhetoric …  including Obama’s brilliant and  really cool analogy involving a restaurant tab.

President Obama went on the offense against Republicans and their nominee Mitt Romney, pushing back on the often-repeated accusation that his administration has ballooned the country’s deficit.

“I love it when these guys talk about debt and deficits,” Obama told supporters in Baltimore. “I inherited a trillion dollar deficit.” [Which is now over $15 trillion]

“We signed two trillion dollars in spending cuts into law,” Obama said. “Spending under my administration has grown more slowly than under any president in 60 years.”  [The above chart would suggest otherwise]

Obama said that the country’s budget deficits and big debt were the result of the George W. Bush’s two tax cuts, as well as the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. “They baked all this stuff into the cake with those tax cuts… and the war,” Obama said.  [maybe so, but I also remember Obama stating in his 2008 campaign that you cannot raise taxes in a recession and that he would cut spending by going over expenses "line-by-line" (Oh wait, before you can have a "line," you have to have a budget!  Oops! My bad!).  I would also point out that  ... 72 out of 100 Senators and 297 out of 435 Representatives (so that includes Republicans and Democrats if you are unsure) voted to support the war in Iraq after 9/11. Therefore, Obama's "they" includes a good many members of Obama's own party as well] 

“It’s like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, a martini and all that stuff, then just as you’re sitting down they leave and accuse you of running up the tab,” Obama said.   [Except Obama has been sitting at that table for three and a half more hours, ordering more wine, desserts, after dinner brandies, and coffee ... hoping he could simply blame the previous patron ... and knowing his Obama-zombies would never catch on ]

Can  Obama can’t really be serious?  Even more sadly, the cool aid drinkers actually do lap it up and believe!  They cling like rats to a sinking ship, blindly following, soaking up the rhetoric while ignoring all evidence to the contrary that surrounds them.  Obama’s true brilliance lies in his ability to play up the “intellectually cheap, populist, class-warfare rhetoric.”  He’s not just blaming  the Bush-era tax cuts (which he himself extended), he’s throwing in a steak-and-a-martini analogy to really show his pizzaz and bring the message home to his loyal Obama-zombies!

Oh well!  When will Obama and his cronies understand that, simply because former President George W. Bush, who was not a fiscally conservative Republican, spent too much money while in office, Obama’s regime quadrupling down on it, and then some … is not a good thing!   Blaming Bush no longer plays … but it seems to be the only card in Obama’s deck.  At least Obama is really good at sticking to his message.
