Way to go Dan!!!

March 9, 2010

Dan Rather on Sunday speaking of President Obama:

“but he couldn’t sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic.”

Now, imagine Rush or Hannity saying that?  They would be crucified and you would be hearing about this every hour on the hour from all the major networks but when it’s one of their own, such as when Rather doctored those documents in 2004, they circle the wagons.  Typical.

Another great article by Neal Boortz  in the Atlanta Paper.

Remember Obama talking during the campaign how it would no longer be “business as usual” in Washington once he was elected?  Yeah, right.  Remember him talking about “transparency”?  Yeah, right.  This article points out just what a hypocrite Obama really is.  Not that Liberals really care.  All they care about is the fact he is a Democrat and not Bush. 

Read it. 

Hypocrisy

March 4, 2010

Neal Boortz posted this on his site today.  It’s awesome.  It’s because of things like this, I am fully convinced, that many Liberals, including cowardly Political Science Professors, decided to cut and run and take their discussions underground.  They knew that Obama and the Democrats would be doing the very things they ripped Bush and the GOP for.  They knew things would be headed this direction.  Here is the post:


RECONCILIATION

Back to this whole healthcare debate …

While Barack Obama didn’t explicitly say it, he opened the door for Democrats to use reconciliation to pass healthcare reform. And that is exactly what they intend to do. Obama says:

“[N]o matter which approach you favor, I believe the United States Congress owes the American people a final vote on health care reform. We have debated this issue thoroughly, not just for a year, but for decades. Reform has already passed the House with a majority. It has already passed the Senate with a supermajority of sixty votes. And now it deserves the same kind of up-or-down vote that was cast on welfare reform, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, COBRA health coverage for the unemployed, and both Bush tax cuts — all of which had to pass Congress with nothing more than a simple majority … I have therefore asked leaders in both of Houses of Congress to finish their work and schedule a vote in the next few weeks.”

Never mind the .. dare I say it .. hypocrisy surrounding this approach. Here is not one but four different examples of Obama demagoguing the use of reconciliation.

CBS Interview 11/2/04
My understanding of the Senate is that you need 60 votes to get something significant to happen, which means that Democrats and Republicans have to ask the question, do we have the will to move an American agenda forward, not a Democratic or Republican agenda forward?

Change to Win Convention 9/25/07
The bottom line is that our healthcare plans are similar, the question once again is, who can get it done? Who can build a movement for change? This is an area where we’re going to have to have a 60% majority in the Senate and the House in order to actually get a bill to my desk. We’re going to have to have a majority to get a bill to my desk. That is not just a fifty plus one majority.

Obama Interview with the Concord Monitor 10/9/07
You’ve got to break out of what I call the sort of fifty plus one pattern of presidential politics. Maybe you eke out a victory of fifty plus one. Then you can’t govern. You know, you get Air Force One, there are a lot of nice perks, but you can’t deliver on healthcare. We are not going to pass universal health care with a fifty plus one strategy.

Center for American Progress Conference 7/12/06
Those big-ticket items: fixing our health care system. You know, one of the arguments that sometimes I get with my fellow progressives, and some of these have flashed up in the blog communities on occasion, is this notion that we should function sort of like Karl Rove where we identify our core base, we throw ’em red meat, we get a fifty plus one victory. See, Karl Rove doesn’t need a broad consensus because he doesn’t believe in government. If we want to transform the country, though, that requires a sizeable majority.

And then lest we forget this from Robert Byrd in 2005. When Republicans wanted to use reconciliation to stop the Democrat filibuster of Bush judicial nominees, Robert Byrd compared the strategy to Nazi tactics. Seriously! Here’s what he had to say back then:

Many times in our history we have taken up arms to protect a minority against the tyrannical majority in other lands. We, unlike Nazi Germany or Mussolini’s Italy, have never stopped being a nation of laws, not of men.

But witness how men with motives and a majority can manipulate law to cruel and unjust ends. Historian Alan Bullock writes that Hitler’s dictatorship rested on the constitutional foundation of a single law, the Enabling Law. Hitler needed a two-thirds vote to pass that law, and he cajoled his opposition in the Reichstag to support it. Bullock writes that “Hitler was prepared to promise anything to get his bill through, with the appearances of legality preserved intact.” And he succeeded.

Hitler’s originality lay in his realization that effective revolutions, in modern conditions, are carried out with, and not against, the power of the State: the correct order of events was first to secure access to that power and then begin his revolution. Hitler never abandoned the cloak of legality; he recognized the enormous psychological value of having the law on his side. Instead, he turned the law inside out and made illegality legal.

Please, folks; if you won’t fight for your liberty, how about fighting for the future of your children and grandchildren.

Now, any Liberals out there wish to explain this obvious hypocrisy? Anyone?

Oh, you gotta know the Liberal whiners are  just loving this:

What Obama doesn’t say

October 13, 2009

From the American Thinker:

1. Not everything is a federal issue; some things are for the states to decide.
2. I hear what you’re saying and you have a good point.
3. One of the beautiful things about our constitution is the liberty given to individuals to pursue their dreams.  There is great opportunity in our country to succeed.
4. In an effort to stimulate job growth and despite the objections from my party, I am working with Congress to reduce taxes for small businesses.
5. I am saddened by the cycle of poverty that exists in our major cities, and here is a way we can empower the next generation to break the cycle and fulfill their God-given potential….
6. The folks at the town hall meetings and those who came to Washington on 9/12 were exercising one of the greatest rights we have as Americans, freedom of speech.
7. Stop already with all forms of ‘cult of personality’ behavior.  I am a public servant, just like all those who have served before and all who will come after my term is complete.  It’s not about me, it’s about the country.
8. I heard a great message Sunday morning at church.
9. History teaches us that evil exists in the world; for this reason the United States must remain strong, ready to defend itself and its allies.
10. I didn’t realize a communist was part of my administration.  It won’t happen again.
11. The billions siphoned out of health care into lawyers’ pockets never healed a single person.
12. No other country on earth offers its citizens the opportunity to pursue life, liberty, and happiness as does the United States of America.
13. The experts have looked at the proposed (fill-in-the-blank) program, and when it is extrapolated out beyond just the initial offering there is clear evidence it will cost too much money and will eventually fail.
14. I disagree 100% with the Cloward-Piven strategy of increasing the welfare rolls and overwhelming the financial system, and I am not affiliated in any way with the implementation of such an idea.
15. I don’t know the answer to your question but I will give it some thought.
16. The goal of my presidency is not to implement a political ideology, but to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
17. Every person has value regardless of age, gender, color, physical characteristics, or any other factor.
18. Any healthcare bill I sign must include a provision to exclude the rationing of care, keep the door open for competition among insurers, and promote the opportunity for our young people to pursue an education in the medical fields to ensure future supply meets future demand.
19. It is important for legislators to remember that what helps someone in the short-term may actually hurt them in the long-term, and we must avoid this kind of scenario.
20. It has become clear to me after meeting with military experts that their recommendations should be implemented in our current situation; this is not an area in which politics can be allowed to interfere.

Ignorance is bliss

October 9, 2009

Maybe these women came from the same family of the woman who, back during the campaign, said she was voting for Obama because he was going to pay her mortgage and gas money:

Of course, I think that several people who post to this site  and several popular ministers and college professors are also under the belief that more Govco is best for everyone.  They pretty much say the same thing as these women.  Sad.  Really sad.

For what?

October 9, 2009

So, Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize.  For what?  I mean, do you know when he was nominated for it?  Two weeks after he took office. TWO WEEKS.  What did he do in those two weeks time to win this award?  All this is is a repudiation on the Presidency of Bush.  That’s all. 

What this really does is taint the whole process and questions the integrity of the committee.

What a joke.

Racist

September 15, 2009

I’m so glad to see that so many of the political pundits (mostly Conservative) were right.  They all said, even during the primaries, that any real criticism of Obama would be called racist.  That’s exactly what we are seeing now.  Have you seen what the liberals are saying all over the media? It’s really sick.

You know, I am even more convinced now that many blogs went private (aka retreated to the bunker) because they knew there was no way they could defend what Obama would do and they knew that Obama would do many of the exact same things they chided the GOP for.

I knew Obama would fail and fail miserably but didn’t realize it would be so quick!

Idiot Quote of the day

August 12, 2009

Obama:

“They do it all the time … UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. … It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems.”

Ok…so he is saying that Govco run health care will have a bunch of issues and problems?  Also, the larger point is this – FedEx and UPS cannot compete with the Post Office in regards to first class mail.  In fact, no on can.  It is illegal to put something in someones mail box.  It’s a crime.   That is just how life will be under Govco…private insurance will not be able to compete.

Ya gotta wonder…

August 10, 2009

What Liberals such as Mark Elrod are saying about all these so called “mobs” at these Town halls.  Is he for or against these people exercising their free speech?  I mean, I remember his old public blog and how he laughed at Conservatives getting shouted down and literally chased off the stage.  What is he saying about Pelosi calling people who are against Govco health care as “un-American”?  Or about Obama sending out Union thugs to “hit back twice as hard” ? 

You have to wonder and wonder we shall since he retreated to his bunker a year ago…
