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.
This is how the Obamareich’s re-election machine is being characterized —and I have no reason to doubt it. Do his followers have a problem with their idol burning through a billion dollars of crony contributions? I don’t hear much about it, if so. I think such a figure would only be morally repugnant if it were a Republican campaign.
I think the Election of 2012 is going to burn some bridges.
Even as far back as the days when the Democratic elites held legal title on human beings as their personal property, they’ve always believed in profiting from the labors of others. Has anything changed in the last 145 years? No. Democratic bosses and their lackeys still believe in the principles of paternalism, dynasticism, and “labor management,” generally. They are identity politicians first and last —always ready to steal or cheat to keep their power.
These days, of course, Americans are not born to the condition of slavery, but the adherence of some to the Democratic Party certainly qualifies as a congenital defect that shares certain aspects of that condition. Yet, even this can be ameliorated and overcome through embracing intellectual honesty and admitting that this country has been ill-served by the current Administration of Marxist thugs and post-American liars.
That’s right: I think it’s time for Democrats to apologize to Americans for what they have done to this country.
What if the States (and let’s start occasionally capitalizing that term again if we really mean anything at all by Federalism) that are now caught up in challenging the Obamatons on the immigration question were to pass their own laws very simply making it illegal to violate Federal immigration law within their own jurisdictions?
After all, how could the Federal government sue a State for observing Federal law?
That’s what’s happening, anyway, because it is already illegal to be here —wait for it— illegally! Who knew?
You cannot bring down unemployment or fully institute Government Medicine or address Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security until you first “comprehensively” (isn’t that a favorite term of the amnesty lobby?) address immigration. There’s no getting around that.
Next topic of interest: asylum cities. Are municipalities to be condoned in their disregard for Federal immigration law while States are attacked by an idiotic President and Attorney General for essentially enforcing Federal immigration law?
I hope these miserable Democrats lose 60 seats in the House. They deserve it.
Will you please autograph my ostraka?!
As I understand it, Barack Obama used to teach Constitutional law before he began the Perpetual Campaign to Charm the World. Supposing he is, in fact, still acquainted with that quaint document, perhaps he can give his man at Justice a call and tell him that only States are permitted representation in the House and Senate. The District of Columbia is not a State. That’s why it’s called the District of Columbia. I think that was a distinction I learned at some point before high school, so I’m quite sure it counts as basic knowledge for any American.
This Attorney General we’ve got now isn’t half the radical his boss is, but that doesn’t matter if he’s every bit as much the hack.
I just watched about as much as I’m ever going to watch of Al Gore’s world-changing masterpiece An Incovenient Truth. It was something I had DVR’d off the Science Channel, so I can only hope that none of his sage insights were lost to the commercial breaks. And I stuck it out, too, for probably 90 percent of the whole sermon, so give me my propers.
The verdict? It is easily the most self-serving product I have ever seen a politician deliver. It was like a cross between Nixon’s Checkers Speech and a highly speculative episode of NOVA, like that one they did about the species of hobbit-people who once lived on the island of Flores. The Gorebot is a doctrinaire man and only superficially recognizant of systems that exist off the program. But this was the apologia he had burned to issue, so peace be upon him. What is it to me? Gore was an example to me in my early 20s, but now he is an object lesson. He doesn’t practice as he preaches, so he’s easy to ignore.
If John McCain would simply describe Barack Obama as a socialist, wouldn’t that almost compel a public discussion of what that word means? I don’t think some people know what’s involved. “Spreading the wealth around” may sound like a great idea to a teenager who’s working for minimum-wage, but to the 40 year-old businessperson who hired this kid to stock the shelves, it’s worrisome to consider that taxes and employee-related costs are going up. As they say, poor people never gave anybody a job —unless you count jobs created by the social necessity of cleaning up after these same people’s mistakes. At that sort of job creation, the social, intellectual, and economic underclasses excel.
The Obamatons are becoming ever more explicit in their grand schemes for the post-Republican, post-American paradise of Obama’s socialist state. They are beginning to bully and cheat in broad daylight. They are, like the terrorists they sympathize and associate with, becoming emboldened. And to what end? To disincentivize work? To undermine the bases of competition and self-worth? To suppress political dissent for the sake of the “common good”? Well, there’s one for you and nineteen for me. Think that’s fanciful? Did you ever think you would see the economic events of the past six weeks? Neither did I.
I think it’s time for the goddamned “press” in this country to put two and two together and start asking some tough questions about the rampant voter fraud being committed by Barack Obama’s friends in ACORN. Do the major broadcast networks and papers not see a problem with what’s going on? There have been hundreds and then thousands of fraudulently registered non-voters found on the rolls in at least a half-dozen battleround states. When is goddamned Katie Couric going to cock her head like the curious dog she is and ask Barry Obamachrist about his extensive and long-term alliance with these fucking frauds? When he was a “community organizer,” he used to train these lying shake-down artists for God’s sake! When is that going to get a fraction of the attention from the kool-aid drinkers at the Assholiated Press that Governor Palin’s HR decisions get? Where are the packs of wolves running down the facts about Obama in Chicago? They’re not there. They’re off in fucking Alaska asking about how many bonfires Palin set at the Wasilla Public Library!
If the sacks of shit who call the tune on the front pages of the morning papers and on the evening news broadcasts ever decide to question why Barack Obama coordinates his campaign’s efforts with hard Left organizations like ACORN, we may yet be able to save our Republic from the creeping anti-Americanism of these Neo-communist liars. So, get to it! Put down your pom-poms and start asking some goddamned questions about this guy.
UPDATE: Go check out this and other amazing posts at Sweetness & Light. Obama’s totally lying about his work with ACORN.
I can’t shake the feeling that Big Media has gone to a lot of trouble to give HRC the rope-a-dope comeback concoction to beat all just now. After kicking her in the nuts every day since Iowa, New Hampshire has been made into some sort of transcendent turn in the narrative that everybody can marvel at. You have people like Brokaw and Russert declaring her victory tonight one of the biggest upsets —if not the biggest upset— in American electoral history. Well, that’s fucking absurd. But it’s no surprise: they recognize that fluffing Obama may make for great political theater, but that he can’t get elected right now. Better to go with the Clinton Machine — which knows how to play at the liberals’ heartstrings, but without committing this country to the unvetted Leftism of the “Yes We Can” crowd.
The Republicans may have a problem with McCain locking horns with the Christian Right, but there are a lot of Obamists out there tonight who really hate the Clintons. I don’t know which split will be uglier in the end, but it should make for some entertaining days to come.
