On Thanksgiving Day Americans consider and reflect on the past year and give thanks for what they have received. On New Year’s Day, Americans, after consideration and reflection, look forward and plan what they wish to accomplish in 365 days.
American Jews and Jews worldwide have an additional day of reflection called Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Yom Kippur “atones for sins between man and G_d, not for sins against another person”
Obama and Obama supporters should take a page from our Jewish brothers and sisters and atone for what they have inflicted on America and Americans.
* * * * *
We’ll get to Obama supporters shortly, but first and foremost the creature with the most to atone for is Barack Obama.
Obama should atone for his trespasses with a swift and immediate resignation along with a confession of the Gay-bashing, race-baiting and misogyny he employed to grab a position of power and prestige he is unworthy of holding and incapable of performing.
The decency of resignation is not one we expect. The Chicago Clown of Corruption is Copenhagen bound.
Afghanistan policy, where Americans die every day, which Obama ignored every day he was in the U.S. Senate -holding not a single meeting of the Subcommittee with jurisdiction over NATO issues in Afghanistan – is up for grabs and the situation getting desperate but Obama is too busy Copenhagen bound:
The military general credited with capturing Saddam Hussein and killing the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, says he has spoken with President Obama only once since taking command in Afghanistan.
“I’ve talked to the president, since I’ve been here, once on a VTC ,” Gen. Stanley McChrystal told CBS reporter David Martin in a television interview that aired Sunday.
“You’ve talked to him once in 70 days?” Mr. Martin followed up.
“That is correct,” the general replied.
The Chicago Circus of Corruption wants the Clown in Copenhagen to further fleece Chicago citizens.
In Iraq, “American insiders in Baghdad say the relationship between the top U.S. commander there, Gen. Raymond Odierno, and the top civilian official there, Amb. Christopher Hill, is deteriorating rapidly. Old hands say the chill between the two brings to the bad old days of Sanchez vs. Bremer, when those two unfortunates barely would speak to each other as the American position fell apart in early 2004, along with Iraq itself.” Iraq policy is in difficulty but the Chicago Clown is off to Copenhagen.
Restrictions on abortion funding under the health care insurance scam Obama proposes is up for crucial votes along with the issue of illegal immigrants and participation in the “program”, but Obama the Clown is Copenhagen bound.
The hapless Senate majority leader, Harry Reid says he needs Obama to “arbitrate a number of contentious issues that still threaten to divide liberal and centrist Democrats and derail a final bill” on health care but Obama the Clown is Copenhagen bound.
Why is Obama Copenhagen bound knowing the trip will at the very least distract Big Media and prevent the nation from addressing issues of importance, like Afghanistan, health care, the economy, Iraq, Iranian nuclear weapons, and job creation in the private sector? The answer is that Clowns in the circus are mostly of use to distract attendee attention between acts. Obama the Clown’s cruise to Copenhagen is a publicity stunt to once again distract from the disaster which is Obama.
Why go to Copenhagen with a Joker grin to backslap and waste time on a long fuel guzzling trans-Atlantic trip in order to speak for about 5 minutes out of a 45 minute presentation?
The White House knows that the decision to go before the International Olympic Committee is fraught with political risk: The president could be embarrassed on a world stage if he doesn’t land the games.
Plus, more than a few Americans are surely scratching their heads — with his inbox crowded with a troop request for Afghanistan, a new secret nuclear site in Iran, sky-high unemployment and a health care bill in Congress, does the president really have time for this? [snip]
Political experts also said that there are several potential side benefits to the Chicago effort that could outweigh any political risk. First, Obama will dominate the headlines with a foreign trip with a nonpolitical and popular goal. That will push the contentious health care debate and tricky decisions on how to win the war in Afghanistan, at least for a few hours, out of the news cycle.
The Chicago Clown of Corruption is Copenhagen bound to distract from unpopularity and failure and to bask in Klieg lights and to delude himself with the notion he is a celebrity worth celebrating.
Trash talking, cheap, clueless and sleeveless Michelle Obama will prove in Copenhagen she is a cheap floozy from Chicago:
“Already, the spirited competition has sparked some high-level trash talking. At the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh last week, Michelle Obama sat next to the first lady of Brazil, Marisa Letícia Rocco Casa. “I said, you know, ‘I’m going to hug you now and then I’m going after you in Copenhagen,’” the first lady said. “And she said, ‘You, too.’ So gloves are off.”
Hug first, stab in the back second, is the real Michelle from Chicago.
Michelle and Oprah are going to Copenhagen to do what they do best: back-stab. Obama the Clown is Copenhagen bound to distract, distract, distract:
He’s a man with an endless, worthy to-do list—health care, climate change, bank reform, global capital regulation, AfPak, the Middle East, you name it—but, as yet, no boxes checked “done.” This is a problem that style will not fix. Unless Obama learns to rely less on charm, rhetoric, and good intentions and more on picking his spots and winning in political combat, he’s not going to be reelected, let alone enshrined in South Dakota.
The president’s problem isn’t that he is too visible; it’s the lack of content in what he says when he keeps showing up on the tube. Obama can seem a mite too impressed with his own aura, as if his presence on the stage is the Answer. There is, at times, a self-referential (even self-reverential) tone in his big speeches. They are heavily salted with the words “I” and “my.” (He used the former 11 times in the first few paragraphs of his address to the U.N. last week.) [snip]
Members of Obama’s own party know who Obama is not; they still sometimes wonder who he really is. [snip] Never much of a legislator (and not long a -senator), Obama underestimated the complexity of enacting a major “reform” bill. Letting Congress try to write it on its own was an awful idea. [snip] It’s not like Chicago, where you call a guy who calls a guy who calls Daley, who makes the call. [snip]
Health-care legislation is still weeks, if not months, from passage, and the bill as it stands could well be a windfall for the very insurance and drug companies it was supposed to rein in. Climate-change legislation (a.k.a. cap-and-trade) is almost certainly dead for this year, which means that American negotiators will go empty-handed to the Copenhagen summit in December —pushing the goal of limiting carbon emissions even farther into the distance. In the spring Obama privately told the big banks that he was going to change the way they do business. It was going to be his way or the highway. But the complex legislation he wants to submit to Congress has little chance of passage this year. Doing Letterman again won’t help.
Howard Fineman wrote the above words. Fineman could have informed Americans of “never much of a legislator” and other Obama shortcomings last year. Fineman is far from atoning for his sins with his few critical columns on Obama.
Richard Cohen has a lot to atone for what he has written in the past in praise of Obama and in denigration of Hillary Clinton. Cohen today tries to atone with a wrist-slap:
Sooner or later it is going to occur to Barack Obama that he is the president of the United States. As of yet, though, he does not act that way, appearing promiscuously on television and granting interviews like the presidential candidate he no longer is. The election has been held, but the campaign goes on and on. The candidate has yet to become commander in chief.
Cohen and Fineman are not alone in their need to atone.

Left Talkers are in desperate need of atonement.
One website that is run by well educated lawyers trashed Sarah Palin about her daughter’s behavior and her mother-in-law’s behavior, held a perverse “lottery” to determine when Palin would withdraw, chose Obama because he was the “media darling”, and acually dared to declare Obama will be one of our greatest presidents – comparable to FDR.
The same defense lawyer Left-Talker that chortled when Sarah Palin’s mother-in-law got in trouble with the police, the same defense lawyer Left-Talker that rubbed her legs and speculated that Governor Palin’s resignation came on a Friday because Governor Palin “wouldn’t time the announcement on such a slow news day if she weren’t trying to minimize it“; the same defense lawyer Left-Talker who gossiped and convicted Sarah Palin without evidence (“The Alaska Report says a big, dirty scandal is coming. Another Alaska blog mentions an investigation into her finances and reports the money has been raised to pay for the release of the e-mails in the FOIA case, and it should only be a matter of days before they are released.”) and spends an inordinate amount of time drinking with her handsome son (see how ugly speculation can work Left-Talkers?) is now – defending convicted fugitive from justice Roman Polanski and shouting “Free Roman Polanski”. A true hypocrite in need of atoning.
We are not judging the Polanski case, we are merely pointing out the hypocrisy of a defense lawyer woman (who trashes a woman governor for the actions of a prospective mother-in-law she has no control over), while defending a convicted child rapist. Hypocrite.
The same defense lawyer Left-Talker is also busy acting high minded and “innocent until proven guilty” when it comes to Nabijullah Zazi. If only this contemptible hypocrite would give the same measure of “innocent until proven guilty” towards abused Sarah Palin.
The male Left-Talker who sold out the Democratic nomination process to Big Media and “media darling” Barack the Clown is now grousing about Big Media. Too late, it is time to atone.
And when it comes to hypocrites and those in need of atonement, the name David Sirota immediately stinks up. David Sirota rejoiced when Rahm Emanuel demanded on Meet The Press that Paul Hackett of Ohio withdraw from the Ohio Senate race in 2006. Sirota slimed and smeared and demanded that Paul Hackett get out (click HERE for some of the sordid story; warning the link is to the sulfur website.)
Now Sirota pretends he is outraged at Rahm Emanuel forcing candidates out of elections without a vote or without counting votes. Sirota worships Emanuel when Emanuel thugs out candidates Sirota does not like. Now Sirota, (like the male Left-Talker who is not so keen on Big Media now, but loved the “media darling”) is upset with Emanuel. Now Sirota is lying about his own ugly history of forcing candidates off the ballot.
I’ve made my position on the Emanuel administration’s attempts to crush Democratic primaries pretty plain: Beyond it being a disgusting effort to crush the kind of local democracy Barack Obama used to make Rahm Emanuel president, it also makes Democratic legislative unity even tougher to achieve. Additionally, the aggressiveness of the effort reveals a double-standard: The Emanuel administration that categorically refuses to twist the arms of congresspeople to pass legislation is the same Emanuel administration that is more than happy to break the arms of Democratic primary candidates.
As I said in my last column, that’s the power-worshiping, incumbent-protecting country-club etiquette at work: Just like, say, Tim Russert, would ask upstart presidential candidate Howard Dean much tougher questions than sitting Vice President Dick Cheney, President Emanuel is willing to punch those outside of D.C., but not those inside.
Now, the Denver Post gives us a sense of just how hard those punches are being thrown. The front-page Sunday story details how President Emanuel dispatched former Max Baucus aide and current Vice President Jim Messina to, as the Post says, “try to buy off” former House Speaker Andrew Romanoff (D) with a job before he announced his primary challenge to appointed Sen. Michael Bennet (D).
Sirota loved it when Rahm Emanuel knocked Paul Hackett off the ballot (with Sirota’s help and propaganda) but now Sirota is really really upset:
The recent headlines about President Obama working to crush primary campaigns against Democratic incumbents would be great fodder for a canned column looking at hypocrisy.
Yes, it would be easy to read about the president trying to clear the Empire State’s primary field for appointed Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and then pen a screed wondering how that squares with Obama promising to avoid “be(ing) the kingmaker” in local elections.
With the White House citing genteel deference to incumbents as justification for its efforts to stop a Democratic primary against Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter, it would be a cinch to write an essay noting that Obama might never have become a successful politician had he not first taken on incumbents in 1996 and 2000.
Sirota is a hypocrite who condemns hypocrisy. Sirota has much to atone for with his attacks on many candidates – like Hillary Clinton.
Elizabeth Edwards is in desperate need of atonement too. Elizabeth Edwards who trashed Hillary and proclaimed her marriage to be superior to Hillary’s marriage now has the prospect of her husband’s bastard moving on up and into the neighborhood.
As we employ the standards of Left-Talkers, it appears Elizabeth is also trashing her husband’s concubine in various websites using fake names. Elizabeth, if she indeed is “Cherubin” also trashes Obama, while hyping her “Johnny” for jobs. Elizabeth Edwards is in need of atonement.
The New York Times, trashed Bill Clinton over Whitewater and has yet to apologize. The Times trashed Bill Clinton almost daily on its front pages and in editorials. Now the Times admits it has little news value judgment and will atone by reading website blogs.
The New York Times, Elizabeth, John, Sirota, Left-Talkers, Obamas, Dimocrats and all he Hopium addled have a great deal to atone for.
It will be a shonda if they persist in their folly.
It’s time to atone for your deeds fellas.
