All Hail Barack Obama!

Obama Needs to Make Nice on All Sides

Spare me the true believers.

I don’t mean the people who support Barack Obama for president. I support Barack Obama for president. I mean the people who worship him to the point that anyone who says anything raising questions about the inevitability of his rise to sainthood, much less the perfection of him and his wife and his campaign, is deserving of damnation.

I wrote a column last week about how the Obama campaign needed to guard against the arrogance that many people tell me they have detected in dealing with them. I didn’t condemn the candidate. I didn’t say he doesn’t deserve to be president. I just made the point, which seems almost obvious to me, that he isn’t president yet….

“Heinous,” one woman wrote to me, in describing my thoughts, and me. Heinous? Oh, of course, and racist and stupid. Thanks. Such comments came not from conservatives who oppose Barack Obama but from true-believers who are ready to condemn anyone who has not joined the revival.

There are stories kicking around that the reason (or one of them) that the highly effective Hillraisers are not raising the kind of money for Obama that they raised for Clinton is because they have been told that no matter what they do, they will never be the “equal” of the Obama fundraisers.

I am happy to believe that he would be appalled if he read some of the e-mails I get when I write columns cautioning the campaing to avoid arrogance, taking on the attitude (that I am certainly not alone in perceiving) that Obama can’t lose and that anyone who so much as suggests that he might is a heretic deserving of condemnation.

As anyone who has ever polled the question of conventions will tell you, there is a widespread view among voters (as opposed to television producers) that discord is a sign of weakness; that if you can’t run (control) your convention, how can you run the country?

Obama’s thought police are hard at work, no? Say anything bad about him and you get inundated with death threats and calls of being racist. The left should be so proud!

Speaking of the extremists… check this post from takeastandagainstlibarals

Change is coming!!!!! President Barack will win by the biggest margin EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ive been having the best dream where I am Barack’s #1 operative! Im sure a device can be put into people that will detect any rascist thought. Then it can be like The Running Man (great flick even though a *spit* Republican is in it) when Richard Dawson says to his operative – “Have him killed!” Barack has these devices put into potential rascists heads and when they do rascism, I and my operative team eliminate them on the spot!

Theres no room for facist rascists in an inlightined society

Hey, a girls gotta keep busy when the Politburo is out of session!

Bonuses will be payed to those eliminating the most rascists! Dont you Repukes live for “incentive”?

Im back stronger than ever! I was layed up for awhile with horrible sunburn. I was out 15-20 hours each day screaming at Grampy McSame when he and the rest of ZOG was at the Bush compound a couple weeks ago and got really, really burned. Oh but Global Warming is a myth right? *spit*

In case you missed it, Senator Obama has just been promoted to President.

And I thought lefties were against the Death Penalty? Who knew they weren’t?

“Theres no room for facist rascists in an inlightined society”

But there’s plenty of room for murder and hate!

“I was out 15-20 hours each day …and got really, really burned. Oh but Global Warming is a myth right?”

Out in the Texas sun in the middle of the summer for 15-20 hours and you think it’s Global Warming that’s the cause? Really? Seek help. You’re obviously having a hard time processing information.

I’m not sure which is worse. Obama, or his supporters.


Obama Preys on Your Fears

McCain Camp Accuses Obama of Playing the Race Card

“Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face. So what they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me,” Obama said. “You know, ‘he’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny name,’ you know, ‘he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”‘

It’s because they’re green, right?

John McCain’s campaign on Thursday accused Barack Obama of “playing the race card” one day earlier, when the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee told voters that Republicans will try to scare them by saying he doesn’t look like “all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

McCain campaign manager Rick Davis issued a statement saying that Obama “played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck” when he told voters Wednesday that McCain will try to scare them into rejecting him. Davis called Obama’s remarks “divisive, negative, shameful and wrong.”

Get ready for the real bull:

Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs said Thursday that Obama was not referring to race.

“What Barack Obama was talking about was that he didn’t get here after spending decades in Washington,” Gibbs said. “There is nothing more to this than the fact that he was describing that he was new to the political scene. He was referring to the fact that he didn’t come into the race with the history of others. It is not about race.”

So when someone says “doesn’t look like” then they aren’t talking about visual characteristics? It’s about time. ‘Look’ refers to ‘time’. Riiiiiight.

” He was referring to the fact that he didn’t come into the race with the history of others.”

Lets take a look at that: (from Wiki)

Washington:

“Washington’s refusal to become involved in politics buttressed his reputation as a man fully committed to the military mission at hand and above the factional fray.”

Washington’s retirement to Mount Vernon was short-lived. He made an exploratory trip to the western frontier in 1784, was persuaded to attend the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in the summer of 1787, and was unanimously elected president of the Convention. He participated little in the debates involved (though he did vote for or against the various articles), but his high prestige maintained collegiality and kept the delegates at their labors. Washington was not a member of any political party, and hoped that they would not be formed out of fear of the conflict and stagnation they could cause governance.

Nope, doesn’t sound like he was a politician.

Thomas Jefferson:

A polymath, Jefferson achieved distinction as, among other things, a horticulturist, statesman, architect, archaeologist, paleontologist, author, inventor and founder of the University of Virginia. Jefferson at the end of 1793 retired to Monticello where he continued to orchestrate opposition to Hamilton and Washington. Indeed, he preferred working in the privacy of his office than the public eye.

Although he was involved in politics, it wasn’t his only passion. And from what I have read, he did most of his work from his home/home state. Not in DC.

Abraham Lincoln:

Lincoln began his political career in 1832, at age 23, with an unsuccessful campaign for the Illinois General Assembly, as a member of the Whig Party. In 1834, he won election to the state legislature, and, after coming across the Commentaries on the Laws of England, began to teach himself law. He served four successive terms in the Illinois House of Representatives as a representative from Sangamon County, and became a leader of the Illinois Whig party. Throughout the election, Lincoln did not campaign or give speeches. This was handled by the state and county Republican organizations, who used the latest techniques to sustain party enthusiasm and thus obtain high turnout.

Active in politics, but at a State level. He probably never even went to DC until after he was elected.

Alexander Hamilton:

After Yorktown, Hamilton resigned his commission. He was elected to the Congress of the Confederation as a New York representative beginning on November 1782. Hamilton resigned from Congress, and in July, 1783, was admitted to the New York Bar after several months of self-directed education. In 1787, Hamilton served as assemblyman from New York County in the New York State Legislature and was the first delegate chosen to the Constitutional Convention. President George Washington appointed Hamilton as the first Secretary of the Treasury on September 11, 1789; he left office on the last day of January 1795.

Doesn’t appear to be another Washington pol either, eh?

It’s hard to nail these guys down as lifelong politicians because they were in and out of politics and they had various activities and interests. It was quite a bit different since our country was being founded and many details needed to be refined.

So we are supposed to believe that McCain will ‘scare’ us because Obama doesn’t look like these folks? Heck, nobody running for office looks like these folks!

And Obama warning us that McCain ‘might’ do something that would ‘scare’ voters, isn’t a form of ‘scaring’ itself?

Oh the hypocrisy!

Does Obama believe in Reparations?

July 29, 2008

According to a frequent guest, Obama doesn’t support reparations. He said it’s on his web site and failed the common courtesy of providing a link to prove his statement. I went to Obama’s website and guess what I found?

Nothing about reparations.

So what’s his stance? Well, according to a recent statement, it appears that he supports it!

Obama notes ‘tragic’ US past

“I consistently believe that when it comes to whether it’s Native Americans or African-American issues or reparations, the most important thing for the U.S. government to do is not just offer words, but offer deeds.”

In other words, he won’t say he’s sorry for slavery but he’ll perform ‘deeds’ for it. But what are ‘deeds’? Is it creating programs to show the country is sorry? Or will he pay them cash?

Since he doesn’t say and our country apologized to the Japanese with words and cash, it’s reasonable to expect him to follow suit.

Cops Say Church Shooting Suspect ‘Hated’ Gays, Liberals

More than 1,000 people came “to make sense of the senseless” Monday evening at a memorial for the victims of a church shooting in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Authorities earlier in the day said the man charged with murder in the shooting left a four-page letter that detailed his frustration of being unemployed, his hatred of gays and liberals, and his expectation that he would be killed by responding authorities.

“It appears that what brought him to this horrible event was his lack of being able to obtain a job, his frustration over that, and his stated hatred for the liberal movement,” Knoxville Police Chief Sterling Owen IV said at a press conference Monday.

Authorities said they are investigating the shooting as a possible hate crime.

“Anytime someone uses force to obstruct another person in the free exercise of their religious beliefs that is a violation of the federal civil rights statutes,” FBI Agent Richard Lambert said Monday.

Police said Adkisson snuck a 12-gauge shotgun into the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in a guitar case Sunday morning and opened fire during a children’s performance of “Annie.” They recovered three spent rounds and more than 70 shotgun shells.

Where do you even begin with such senselessness?

My condolences go out to those that are suffering through this ordeal.

As for the gunslinger… Satan has reserved a special seat on the express train to hell for you. No true Christian would do something as horrible as this. The Church’s that I’ve gone to teach good values like ‘forgiveness’. Hate the sin but not hate the sinner. I’d be willing to bet his hatred has little or nothing to do with liberals and gays. Blowing up a gay bar would’ve been more believable. And for those liberals with impaired reading abilities, I’m not calling nor condoning that gay bars be blown up.

Killing innocent people is and should be roundly condemned!

Stern on XM/Sirius Merger: ‘I Will Never Vote For a Democrat Again’

Sirius Satellite Radio host Howard Stern supports the merger of his network with XM Satelitte Radio and is fuming at Democratic opposition on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) panel.

After FCC commissioners announced they have reached a deal to approve the merger of Sirius and XM , Stern ranted about Democrats’ ‘gangsterism’ and ‘communism’ and the obstacles to the merger.

Stern described a phone conversation he had with his agent, who he described as a “liberal Democrat kind of guy.”

“I go, ‘That’s it!’” Stern said. “[I] go, ‘You know what Don, I’ve voted Republican and I’ve voted Democrat. I have vowed I will never vote for a Democrat again. I don’t give a [expletive] – no matter who they are. I don’t care if God becomes a Democrat.’ I said, ‘I backed Hillary Clinton, I backed Al Gore, I backed John Kerry. I am done with them.’”

Stern took it a step even further and called Democrats on the FCC “communists” and referred to their tactics as “gangsterism.”

“The fact that these Democrats on the FCC are communists,” Stern said. “They’re for communism. They don’t want to see companies – this is gangsterism. I said, ‘This is crazy.’”

Now if we can get more people to wake up to the games the Dems play, eh? Scratch that, make that Pols instead of Dems. Democrats don’t have a monopoly on sticking it to the voters, it just seems that way.

The Problem with ‘Free’ Services

July 23, 2008

Elderly Australians Use Ambulances Responding to 911 Calls as Taxi to Shops Across From Sydney Hospital

Paramedics responding to emergency calls in Sydney are being used as de facto taxi drivers to local shops.

Older residents are the main offenders — using their pensioner entitlements to secure a free ride in an ambulance instead of paying a taxi fare to go shopping, ambulance sources have confirmed.

An ambulance ride to Mt Druitt Hospital costs $290, but the fee is waived for pensioners and other entitlement card holders.

Paramedics have watched in horror as patients miraculously recover from headaches and other feigned ailments to go shopping across the road.

“You get them to the emergency department and they walk out the door. They are the same patients, you know who is going to do it,” a source said.

“Once the ambulance (crew) has cleared paperwork, they leave and see the person crossing the road and going to the shopping center. An ambulance is an instant free taxi with a pension (entitlement) card.”

It’s funny how people abuse things that are free to them. It doesn’t matter how much it costs someone else. Nope. Not one bit. It’s all about me baby!

I was at the emergency room yesterday and one of the workers mentioned that it was quite popular for people to get drunk and claim they are suicidal. They come in and get examined and get waited on for a couple of days. Food, meds, the works. All on the taxpayers dime. Don’t you just love working to pay for these freeloaders!

This is why I’m against so much ‘free’ stuff. Let the ‘rich’ pay for it, right? That’s how it starts, but when the costs soar due to abuse, then they lower the level of ‘rich’. Eventually, you’ll be considered ‘rich’. ‘Free’ now may be nice, but it’ll catch up and it won’t be so nice.
