In his acceptance speech before the RNC last Thursday, Mitt Romney quoted Barack Obama’s 2008 promise that his election would “slow the rise of the oceans” —at which point he paused a full twelve seconds before finishing the quotation. This was a brilliant rhetorical gesture: to let the absurdity of such unmerited self-regard sink into the audience’s mind anew. Romney was asking us to consider choosing a man of deeds over a man of words. That’s what I’m doing.
Hippies, don’t let your intellectual pride compel you to make the same mistake twice. But if you don’t have the integrity to admit you were wrong the first time, you could at least have the decency to not vote this time.
Barack Hussein Obama is in town today hitting up the local Democratic ATMs for the money he needs to keep his regime alive. It’s weird that a wealthy American, to the extent that a Democrat fits that description, would reward this Lying Marxist Bastard for the great harm he’s done to my country, but we are stuck with a system where party is favored over patriotism, just as General Washington warned. These rich degenerates are investing in their party as a means to obtaining personal power. But, in Obama’s case, this is even more particularly an emotional and moral issue. These effete starfuckers (and the lesser fluffers who infest my town) see their support of the President as a validation of their self-regard as open-minded and post-racial. But they are as intolerant and bigoted as any conservative or Republican or Christian they hate on. They may have the kinds of intelligence that great success in business requires, but they have no self-awareness for the racist and classist premises they act on. They believe of themselves what the media and academic and social elites have always told them they are: progressive, right, and just.
In 2008, I told anyone who would listen that there was no way that my country would be so stupid as to elect such a lying Marxist bastard President. But I was grievously wrong; we are that stupid. And we have paid a great penalty for it. I have little confidence that there are enough Americans left among the electorate to make the right decision this time. Incumbency in the hands of men and women without conscience is very hard to dislodge. But if we are true to ourselves and to the Last Great Hope of Earth, we must make some kind of effort at defeating this regime. Our country’s life depends on it.
[...] this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth.
Even after it happened, I could not believe that the American people would elect someone like Obama: an untested and media-created Marxist ideologue posing as a centrist. Right: a Chicago Democrat as the “post-racial” (whatever that term hopes to mean) Third Way. He is indisputably the Democratic Party’s revenge on the Union —this contemptuous liar with Lincolnian pretensions— in the form of a literal embarrassment of the country’s electorate as the ignorant partisans they are. How did it ever happen? Americans who love their country must work to deny this man another term in which to show his contempt for what makes us prosperous and free.
I’m glad Romney stepped it up on Gingrich tonight with the influence-peddling charge, but he probably didn’t gain a lot of ground from it. Still, Romney needs to stay mean and on the offense even if that’s playing against type.
The President had no need of such a venue tonight as a joint session of the Congress except to provide himself with the props of authority. His narcissism is boundless, as well as a decidedly un-republican menace to our society.
What did he say tonight that he hasn’t said in dozens of other equally insipid speeches? To insist on such a setting for such an unremarkable campaign spiel verges on an abuse of the privilege. This is Son of Stimulus with the usual horseshit narration.
Our nation’s economy will begin to recover once this Marxist bastard is out of office. Just as his nomination by the DNC in the summer of 2008 precipitated the Great Recession, his departure will surely mark the beginning of real hope and change.
David Axelrod and his boss are a goddamned disgrace. Obama’s suggestion that the Republicans and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Karl Rove are stealing our democracy is based on lies and is stupid and wrong. This incredible Marxist thug that the Democrats put in the White House has some nerve to lie about where his political opponents are getting their money when it’s a virtual certainty that Obama’s own fundraising in 2008 was full of fraudulent donations from abroad.
Maybe Chairman Issa can look into how and why all of those millions of dollars in credit card donations to Obama’s campaign originated from untraced and untraceable sources. That was a deliberate choice and it’s time that the real thieves of our democracy are held to account.
The basic problem facing the Democratic Party elites with regard to torture is that they don’t know what to do with it now that it’s served its purpose in fundraising and in vilifying the former Administration. To go as far as they have with hyperbole and self-righteousness against Bush the Younger is to leave them deeply vulnerable. After all, these people have hitched their wagon to a narcissistic liar who makes Bill Clinton seem a model of partisan fidelity and personal loyalty. If they’re stupid enough to do that, then they’re stupid enough to persist with their moral preening and untenable hypocrisy.
I don’t care what happens to Pelosi or what these truth and reconciliation committees do about anything. I don’t care about so-called “torture” because I don’t believe that waterboarding or sleep deprivation or any humiliation inflicted on criminals defines American Civilization as these filthy rodents in the Democratic Party would like you to believe it does. To them, History exists to be abused and to serve self-abuse. Let’s talk about scalping Indians and lynching negroes. Let’s talk about pandemics and genocide, deliberately caused or not. Let’s live in a perpetual fog of self-loathing nonsense and never take stock of what this civilization has done to improve the lot of all mankind.
Incidentally, it’s important to remember that when Democrats talk about how evil and un-American waterboarding is, they’re actually defending mass murderers from the fear of death by drowning. They’d like to leave it as a more abstract accusation, but we’re talking about actual Islamofascist murderers, including Abu Zubaydah and Khalid Mohammed. Yes, we did make those men fear for their lives. And what of it? The moral perversity of Americans apologizing for these murderers at the expense of our national security and the dignity of those who have chosen to defend us is disgusting.
Until two months ago, it was always possible to refer to the President of the United States by the old Cold War title of the “leader of the free world.” It was something to remind us that we were different from the Soviets and Red China and all the other wretched peoples struggling under Communism. One could have even used it to refer to Jimmy Carter. Good God! Think of that! But today it sounds ridiculous when applied to someone whose greatest desire is to diminish and devalue our place in the world. Today it is a dead term.
What a great tragedy the American People have brought onto themselves. I still sometimes cannot believe it’s happening.
If you watched Steve Kroft’s interview with the President tonight on 60 Minutes, it should be clear to you that The One knows as well as anyone that the excise tax passed by the House on bonuses paid to executives with AIG or the other bail-out recipients is un-Constitutional and ridiculously unfair. He wouldn’t come right out and say it, but you know he knows it is against America’s legal principles.
Of course the bonuses are bullshit —but they are contractually obligatory. And who tried to protect those bonuses? Chris Dodd. The White House. Other hypocritical assholes who had no idea that a pittance of $165 million would even get noticed in this wholesale rush to state ownership of the financial industry. Now they know different.
Even more bullshit still is Obama’s suggestion that there should be compensation caps on Wall Street executives —and that they should be glad that they aren’t like the poor schmucks elsewhere in the country who would be glad to have a salary of even “$75,000.” You can just tell that this man has no faith in the free market —but infinite faith in the power of class warfare.
After all, he’s a Marxist.
The people who elected Barack Obama President are ignorant assholes who should apologize. That is the bottom line and I will insist on it from here on in.
President TelePrompTer’s got some nerve to say anything about AIG when he is second only to the even dirtier Senator Dodd on the list of politicians who took campaign money from that company:
AIG executives gave more than $630,000 during the 2008 political cycle even as the company was falling apart
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign finance reports, more than $120,000 of that money was donated after AIG received its first $85 billion in federal bailout funds in September. The company has since received a total of $170 billion in taxpayer cash to prevent its collapse.
Their generosity included more than $23,000 to Obama’s campaign.
Both Obama and Republican presidential candidate John McCain raked in much larger sums from AIG earlier in the year. Obama collected a total of $130,000 from AIG in 2008, while McCain accepted a total of $59,499.
These fucking dumbasses are corrupt to their very cores —and now they want to confiscate these ridiculous ”retention” bonuses that they signed off on?! How are you idiots going to do that? By trying to enact a bill of attainder against these losers (who, BTW, went mostly “unretained”)? Good luck with that! Try not to destroy several centuries of common law and contract law while you’re at it!
Miserable sacks of shit —the whole lot of them. And now they say that Freddie’s and Fannie’s executives are gonna get huge bonuses, too? For what? Destroying this country’s housing market? Good Christ!
Shit, meet fan.
Can’t wait for 2010.
