How Is Barack Obama Like A Used Condom?

Riddle me this: How is Barack Obama like a used condom? We know it’s an indecent question but we are at an indecent time. To get the answer to our question you’ll have to go to the end of this article. To understand the sludge level of indecency ushered in America by Barack Obama and his Hopium Guzzling addicts you can read on.

How low are these filthy Obama people? We’ll eventually find out:

“Joe and I are upset with Obama, and we, for example, raised nearly $43,000 for the man, According to the White House, our money now doesn’t count. Great, would they like to give it back? I for one, would love the $1000 back that I personally donated to the Obama campaign. Joe gave even more. I suspect a lot of our readers wouldn’t mind their contributions back too, since apparently they’re not appreciated.

Then there’s all that work we did for the campaign, all the dirty work they asked us to do – and we did it, gladly, and quietly – none of that counted either, apparently.”

How low in decency are the Obama Hopium guzzlers and enablers? LeftTalking garbage today declares Hillary Clinton should run for president in 2016 after Obama’s two terms. As if Obama deserves or will ever be a two term president. Just shut up idiots! You are the ones who got us into the swamp of corruption. The LeftTalking garbage that thought Obama should be elected because he was a “media darling”, the same LeftTalking garbage that thought Obama would be ‘another FDR’, that same LeftTalking garbage now presumes to say anything about what Hillary Clinton should do – that is how low we have gotten. Shut up! Just shut up!

But this type of LeftTalking garbage is much worse in other precincts. A while back in an earlier “Shut Up!” article we wrote:

“Barack Obama and his nest of cheap hoodlums and thugs called Bill Clinton a “racist” but now Barack Obama and his Dimocrats want Bill Clinton to presumably go to South Carolina and other scenes of Bill Clinton’s “racist” truth telling and tell “black folk and white folk’ something like this: “Please vote for Obama and his Dimocrats this November because I am a white racist cracker.” Barack Obama is now trying to attach himself to “racist” Bill Clinton for survival.”

Bill Clinton, racist Bill Clinton, saved Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas and kicked the Nutroots in their nuts and roots. Bill Clinton, racist Bill Clinton, is now supposed to save Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania. Bill Clinton, racist Bill Clinton, is now supposed to save the Obama Dimocrats. As if.

We remember how Barack Obama and his gang of blogging boobs, the Pixel Left, mocked Bill Clinton. Back in August of 2007, three years ago, we stated: “Barack Obama is turning into George Bush.” Obama, Gibbs, and other assorted Obama thugs did not like it when we spoke the truth three years ago, and they certainly do not like the truth today (Gibbs really needs to be subjected to a drug test).

We remember how Barack Obama and his gang of blogging boobs, the Pixel Left, mocked Hillary Clinton and the battles of the 90s and mocked Bill Clinton:

“I am in this race because I don’t want to see us spend the next year re-fighting the Washington battles of the 1990s,” he said. “I don’t want to pit blue America against red America. I want to lead a United States of America. I don’t want this election to be about the past, because if it’s about the future, we all win.”

That led to a sharp rebuke from Barney Frank at the time. Barack Obama and his gang of blogging boobs, the Pixel Left, now want to go back to the nineties. Case in point Joe Sestak’s latest campaign literature which brags about Bill Clinton and does not mention in any way Barack Obama and his Big Tent Circus of Chicago Corruption:

“On the eve of President Clinton’s visit to Pennsylvania, a close look at Congressman Toomey’s choices and the Wall Street values that have led him to support the failed policies that have devastated Pennsylvania’s economy show that his mindset would hurt Pennsylvania families all over again given the opportunity.

According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, President Clinton’s fiscally responsible budgets and focus on tax breaks for working families created 87,000 new jobs per year in Pennsylvania over eight years. [snip]

… President Clinton’s priorities produced in just one year. […]

“We created more Pennsylvania jobs in one year under President Clinton’s fiscally responsible economic leadership … [snip]

President Clinton understood that … [snip]

During the eight years of the Clinton Administration, jobs rose 11.2% in Pennsylvania. [snip]

Toomey/Bush vs. Sestak/Clinton Priorities – By the Numbers

Job Growth:

• During the Clinton Administration, the yearly job growth in Pennsylvania was more than five times…[snip]

• During the eight years of the Clinton Administration, jobs rose 11.2 percent in Pennsylvania. [snip]

• The average yearly job growth during the Clinton Administration (86,961 a year) was … [snip]

• … a unified budget surplus of $236 billion from President Clinton, the largest surplus in American history. [snip]

Fiscal Responsibility:

• “Pay as you go” (PAYGO) rules were originally established under the 1990 Budget Enforcement Act and extended in 1997 under President Clinton.

Shameless. Run on Barack Obama’s cheesy, corrupt, record – not on Bill Clinton’s Peace and Prosperity record of accomplishments for the American people. The Obama Dimocrat slogan for 2010: “We used to be good on the economy?”

“That Republicans would be worse? Somehow, that doesn’t scare me anymore.” Devastating defeat and doom is what Obama and his Hopium Guzzlers along with the Pixel Left deserve. It’s the only way to rid ourselves of Barack Obama NOW!

In 2008 Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton were, according to the vile Obama and his disgusting crowd, racists with a record not worth bothering about. Now? Now it’s too late. Death, devastating defeat, doom to the Obama Dimocratic Party.

In Colorado tonight there will be a primary. Barack Obama and his thugs along with some in the Pixel Left have endorsed the incumbent senator. Bill Clinton, has endorsed Andrew Romanoff. Romanoff is another candidate Bill Clinton is making an effort for because Romanoff endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2008. Bill Clinton is supporting Hillary Democrats not Obama Dimocrats. Bill and Hillary have their eye on the ball, as do we. Let the Pixel Left make public idiots of themselves by thinking that Bill and Hillary Clinton are helping Obama. Bill and Hillary Clinton are helping us to rid the country of Obama and Obamaism and Obama thugs.

Tonight we’ll track the results from Colorado which pits Romanoff against Bennet. The real battle will be the massed forces of Barack Obama, the DNC Obama thugs and all the forces of the Obama corruption – against Bill Clinton’s endorsement.

Andrew Romanoff was a dead duck, until Bill Clinton came on board with the Midas touch:

“After a much ballyhooed endorsement e-mail for Andrew Romanoff in June, Former President Clinton went dark in Colorado’s contested Democratic Senate primary: no more e-mails, no campaign events, no fundraisers, nada. The initial gesture was assumed to be simple reciprocity for Romanoff’s support of Hillary Clinton in ’08 and Clinton’s own spokesman said 42 wouldn’t be making any more overtures to Centennial State voters before next Tuesday’s contest. But now, in the 11th hour, Clinton is lending his voice to a get-out-the-vote robocall on Romanoff’s behalf:

Calls and endorsements don’t move the needle much, but the margin of Obama-backed incumbent Michael Bennet’s lead over Romanoff has become razor thin in recent weeks and the trend line has been moving in the challenger’s direction:

Romanoff’s campaign says the call will go out to every eligible voter who has yet to submit a ballot — as of Friday, about 245,000 of the state’s 817,000+ active registered Democrats had mailed in their votes according to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office. That leaves plenty of room for the Dems’ favorite surrogate to work with.”

Andrew Romanoff was a dead duck, until Bill Clinton came a callin’:

“Appointed Sen. Michael Bennet (D) could become the third sitting senator to go down to defeat in a party primary tomorrow if former Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff (D) manages to ride his late momentum to victory in the Colorado Democratic primary.

At the outset of the primary campaign, Romanoff struggled to gain a foothold against Bennet’s financial advantage and national support. [snip]

In the last days of the race Bennet enlisted Pres. Obama in a TV ad and a tele-townhall. It still remains to be seen whether that strategy will work out better for Bennet than it did for Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA).

But the question remains whether Romanoff caught fire soon enough to take advantage of CO’s new mail-in only primary system. Ballots reached voters on July 20th, and a record number have already been returned to the CO Sec. of State. Bennet and Romanoff are neck-and-neck in the latest polls, and it’s a real toss-up as to who will emerge the victory come Wednesday.”

All the power is on the side of Bennet. Romanoff has Bill Clinton. If Bill Clinton wins, er, Andrew Romanoff, expect a deludge of endorsement requests to President Bill Clinton. If Bill Clinton wins, er, Andrew Romanoff, expect further panic in Needle Park as the Hopium addicts fight for the last doses of Hopium.

“Tim Kaine, the Democratic National Chairman exhibited what can only be called stupidity the other day when he said about the coming election, “Democratic candidates who distance themselves from the president do so at their own peril”. He also said, “If you distance yourself from the president, you can pour cold water on the excitement about what he is doing.”

the problem with what Kaine said, is, what in the world is he talking about? What excitement? The only people excited about Obama going into the fall election are Republicans.

As for Kaine’s statement that Democrats distancing themselves from Obama do so at their own peril, the only peril facing Democrats seeking election now is Obama himself, and the fact that Democrats, liberals and independents have shown in poll after they poll that they are fed up, angry or disgusted with Obama.

And for good reason. Obama has messed up the best opportunity the Democrats have had in a century to affect real change and so far he’s blown it. And it seems, everyone but Kaine, the White House and some media sycophants know it.”

Obama Dimocrats are running away from the destruction they have unleashed. Obama Dimocrats do not want to talk about all those amazing promises and all those astounding “accomplishments.” Obama Dimocrats are braggin’ on Bill Clinton and strangely silent about the Chicago flim-flam man:

“As Democrats fan out across the country to campaign for reelection this month, many are surprisingly quiet about their hard-won accomplishments — the major bills they have passed under President Obama.[snip]

One year after many town hall meetings were upended by raucous anti-government protesters, congressional Democrats are trying to ensure that this summer’s debate sheds a more flattering light on their party as they navigate a bruising midterm election campaign.”

Shameless. They will not hold themselves accountable for the corruption in the swamp. They won’t go the people and ask for approval for the “work” they have wrought, the damage done.

Some Democrats even see the need to attack flam-flim, flim-flam man Obama.

Whether it is gay bloggers doing dirty work for Barack Obama, drag queen band members lying to and about Sarah Palin (and the ridiculous issue of eye-rolls and Palin’s teacher friendly family) or the race-baiters spawned by the Barack Obama race-baiting campaign who race-bait anyone they disagree with – Obama Dimocrats must go.

Out with Obama Dimocrats, in with Gutfeld’s tolerance based gay Mosque bar.

The answer to our question is below.

How is Barack Obama like a used condom? Using it was only fun for two people and now there is nothing left to do but throw the condom away.

Throw it away. Flush it.

  1. Polls in Georgia have closed. There was a run-off election there. Polls in Colorado and Connecticut will close soon.

    Colorado polls close at 9 p.m. Eastern.

  2. Obama is like a used condom……its been forever in your wallet until one day its past sell by date, you decide to use it rashly without thinking, its a bad fit, feels uncomfortable, you know its wrong and your just hoping it works because if it doesnt you end up with that venereal disaster that you really didnt want to fuck up your life.

    Obama in a nutshell.

  3. Great article! He is just like a used condom…just throw him away! I’ll go for that!

    Colorado is going to be a good barometer of the strengths….BC’s candidate is going to win….I can just feel it!

    Poor Gibbs, how will he explain this to the WND reporter???

  4. MoonOnPluto, whether that wallet condom works or does not work – you’re still screwed. 🙂 But with Obama not in a good way.

  5. Admin,

    I said this in an earlier thread, but congrats on nailing Obama on being the Bush 3rd term, since apparently that’s what he really hates.

    You got under his skin with that months before anyone else.

    Good work.


    great photos of Hillary…she is the hardest working woman in the USA…

  7. Well my TV went out again…we got a little rain and there goes my satelitte….pls. let me know what happens in Colorado…I’ll be staying tuned here.

  8. I still go to YouTube and watch that video “We’ll wait for you, Hillary” .. I’m still waiting for the best candidate we ever had to take her place as Madam President. We need to just always hold Bill and Hillary up in our prayers for good health and safety.

    God, how we need Hillary at the helm right now.

    And, YES Bill Clinton showed pure grace and selflessness in the way he has handled all the shit flung at him. Constrast that with scowl faced MEShelle.

  9. Admin: I certainly am glad I read those articles about Sarah you posted in your article….the lefties are just plain nuts about Sarah…they just can’t leave her alone….something tells me she knows when one of them is out there critisizing her…

  10. Connecticut results are coming in. So far no surprises with about 5% of the vote in.

    Wrestling executive Linda McMahon will win the Republican nod and Blumenthal will be Dodd’s replacement in the Senate race. The question of the night in Connecticut is whether Ned Lamont, who has turned his back on the Nutkooks, will be the nominee for governor. The Republican race is interesting too.

  11. Afghanistan is a hellhole, we aint ever going to change that mindset. I’m sick to the stomach reading this. What evil lives in their hearts.

    Taliban Execute Pregnant Woman in Afghanistan

    The Taliban publicly flogged and then executed a pregnant Afghan widow by firing three shots into her head for alleged adultery, police said on Monday.

    Bibi Sanubar, 35, was kept in captivity for three days before she was shot dead in a public trial on Sunday by a local Taliban commander in the Qadis district of the rural western province Badghis.

    The Taliban accused Sanubar of having an “illicit affair” that left her pregnant. She was first punished with 200 lashes in public before being shot, deputy provincial police chief Ghulam Mohammad Sayeedi told AFP.

    “She was shot in the head in public while she was still pregnant,” Sayeedi said.

  12. Georgia results are coming in (about 35%). Not a very interesting race for us, but there is this Sarah Palin angle:

    There’s a Gingrich/Huckabee vs. Palin proxy war happening in the GOP gubernatorial primary in Georgia. Newt and Huck backed Nathan Deal, who’s narrowly ahead with 15 percent of the precincts reporting as I write this, and Sarahcuda chose Karen Handel, not only anointing her a “mama grizzly” but turning up in the state to campaign for her. If Deal wins, expect much media navel-gazing tomorrow about What It All Means vis-a-vis Palin’s brand.

    Hotair also has this on the Colorado race:

    The other big one, and even more fun for political junkies, is the Bennet/Romanoff showdown in the Democratic senate primary in Colorado. Remember, Romanoff was the guy whom The One tried to bribe into getting out of the race; as if that’s not sweet enough, Bill Clinton turned around and endorsed him in late June, making this a glorious Obama/Clinton proxy war. Bennet, as the incumbent, is the favorite, but Romanoff’s been creeping up and it’s now too close to call. Another fun fact: Bennet was enough of an ObamaCare shill that he once told CNN he’d happily risk his job in order to pass the bill. Here’s hoping he’s finished off tonight.

  13. MOP, That is a horrible story….I think this is why Hillary wants the Taliban out of there…there will never be peace for a woman as long as this Sharia Law is installed.

  14. I loved this article. I sure hope that Romanoff wins in Colorado. That would be a spectacular win for the anti-obama dems, in my opinion. I also want to see complete and utter destruction of the Democratic party. I will then wait to see what comes of it before I decide to ever vote for another Democrat again. The way I see it right now, they are going to have a very tough sell to get me to support them in the future. Twenty Six years of solid democrat votes, and I have no desire to pull the lever for them again. I even voted for Dukakis for crap sake!

  15. From a friend of my wife’s mother:
    Although we we weren’t allowed a camera at the wedding or any events – here is my attempt at giving the full rundown.

    Astor Courts – Built between 1902-1904 and originally used as a sporting pavilion with guest bedrooms, it houses the 1st indoor swimming pool in the US, and a huge indoor Tennis Court . To get there you have to go through this long winding road, and the grounds are truly breathtaking on the Hudson . Upon arrival we had a quick glass of water, and then went to the ceremony.

    Ceremony – It was all outside and the weather was great. They had yarmulkes for men, and fans for everyone in case it got hot. The chuppah was the most amazing one I have ever seen, and it was constructed out of willow branches and decorated with white roses and hydrangeas. It was shaped like a dome, almost like a pavilion and it was lit up at night so we could see it in the evening. Chelsea told me later that she was inspired by our chuppah! The Ceremony was very jewish, about 80%. The rabbi did most of the talking and they had a nice Ketubah on display, and they had a Sheva Brachot whereby the Rabbi read each one and they had a reader repeat in english. At the end when Marc broke the glass, the Rabbi told us that they would use the broken pieces and put them back together to make a mezuzah for their apartment. I really liked that idea, and when I spoke with Chelsea she told me it was her idea, and she researched it and they bought it at the Jewish Museum. Clearly alot of thought had gone into the ceremony and it was really lovely right at sunset.

    Dresses – As has been reported Chelsea was in Vera Wang, which she really looked lovely and it had a long train. I was really blown away by Hillary, who looked great. She wore a beautiful red dress with embroidered flowers and she was so attractive. Bill looked great and lost over 20 pounds for the wedding. Both of them were really beaming throughout the whole ceremony. The bridesmaids also wore Vera Wang in light purple (which is one of a kind, because they had white dresses dyed the right color). After the ceremony Chelsea changed into another white dress (Vera Wang again). Needless to say Vera was in attendance.

    Flowers – I don’t think there is a hydrangea left in the northeast. The main house was decorated in large bouquets of white hydrangeas/roses and over the fireplaces were long displays of white lillies (like they have in the George V in Paris , where they arc across the room). As I mentioned the flowers in the Chuppah were amazing as well. In the main reception area (Tented construction in the rear), the were a variety of arrangements but the tables had a minimum of 3-4 different arrangements – this time in purple/pink roses and hydrangeas again. I mean there were a minimum of 100/150 roses per table.

    Reception – They set up a marquee in the back behind the tennis courts – and it was truly amazing. Chandeliers/air conditioning and a huge dance-floor. There were about 450 people but it didn’t feel that big. The tables were mixed arrangements – some circles, a very long dais (where Chelsea/Marc/Bridal Party/Family were). The flowers were arranged mixed, some high, some low, with a variety of candle/water arrangements. The colour palette was soft lilac/white. We were seated at each table, with a personalized printed menu for each person (instead of a name card). Of course everyone was split up – so heather and I were apart from one another. It turns out that the parents of a couple at our table are very good friends with the Waldman’s (the Berkowitz’ of St Andrews) – jewish geography (as they are not from Canada ).

    Band – The band was amazing and I think it was about 20/25 people with a full string section as well as a standard band. They could play anything and really led the crowd the entire night. The first dance was great and Marc and Chelsea did a pretty sexy tango style which was showed how much in love they were. Bill was crying when he danced with Chelsea . They did a hora, and yes, both Bill and Hillary were raised on the chairs and carried around the room. Hilarious.

    Food: I thought it was good (and now I know that Chelsea is a Vegan, there were gluten free bread and the huge wedding cake was gluten free as well. Salad/Risotto/choice of Arctic Char, Angus Steak or Vegetarian/Desert/Cake. We didn’t finish eating until 1am or so.

    After Party – The band wrapped up at 1:30, and then we went into the Tennis Court which was converted into a lounge, with different flowers (this time red hydrangeas/roses everywhere) and a dance floor with couches etc. Then came the comfort food, grilled cheese with Truffle, seared tuna, red velvet cupcakes, mini burgers etc). They had a DJ playing, as well as someone playing the electric violin. It was really great fun, and we headed back on the buses at 3am, and got back to the hotel at 4am. We started the night at 4pm, so a long night.

    Guests – The press had it all wrong, it wasn’t a hollywood event but more of a family a friend event. So the only “stars” were Mary Steenburgen and Ted Danson (who partied till 3am as well). Madeline Albright, Vernon Jordan and Terry Mcauliff. There were alot of Washington people, but mostly it was family and friends which was great as it was very comfortable and we knew people.

    Speeches – Hillary and Bill made the welcome speeches and both were excellent. Hillary welcomed everyone by saying “The press was saying – who is invited – well you are, everyone in this room has touched the lives of Chelsea and Marc either in the past or present and we hope you will be part of our lives going forward – we thank you for all that you have done for them both. Bill then said that he has been outnumbered in his house with Chelsea and Hillary and was looking forward to having an ally. The best men (brothers) made nice speeches and the matron of honor (jewish girl) made a really heartfelt speech. The highlight was Marc’s where he described the moment he went to ask for Chelsea ‘s hand in marriage with Bill (and Hillary) which was funny and surreal. He also said that Chelsea embodied the finest qualities of both her parents and he thanked them for raising such a special person (Bill had tears at this point). Marc also said that as people have been there for them, he wanted to make it clear that he and Chelsea would always be there for everyone else – good times and bad. It was very touching and meant alot to everyone in the room who knows them well. Chelsea ‘s speech was also great (off the cuff) and she radiated when she spoke of her love for Marc and again for everyone in the room.

    Whew, then we had the Brunch

    Location: The brunch (again hosted by Hillary and Bill) took place in this magnificent barn in Rhinebeck. We had to drive (ID checked again and again). and then a golf cart took us to the barn, which was just amazing. They had two 20 foot walls covered in Sunflowers and we sat a communal tables (it was informal) and had very good brunch food (again wheat/gluten free options). It was a beautiful morning and you could look out over this huge expanse of land and it was really special. Even though we were all tired, it was great. Hillary was out in force, being very Mother of the Bride and looking very summer cool. Bill showed up towards the later end of the Brunch, and Marc and Chelsea were both there ( Chelsea again in a beautiful bright blue dress). We caught up with some more friends and Marc’s family whom I know, and it was a great end to the weekend

    Hillary complimenting Heather on her earrings, Heather getting 3 compliments on the dress – people thought she was European.
    Madeline Allbright dancing with Vera Wang, and hearing Hillary say to Madeline at the Brunch ” You were one hot mamma last night”
    Bill and Hillary being lifted on chairs during the hora. Secret Service made sure there were plenty of men to do the carrying.
    The grounds of Astor Courts lit up at night framing the marquee, pool area and the Chuppah under the stars
    The relaxed elegance and beauty of the brunch – it was a special place.

    Gift Bag – Last but not least they had a great gift bag (again with the same logo/writing as the invitations/save the date) – with wine, maps, sweets, pen, stationary, all local things sourced in Rhinebeck as a tribute to the Wedding.

    …and that is all she wrote.

  16. Connecticut:

    Blumenthal wins.
    McMahon about to win.
    Lamont losing, Malloy winning in D governor race.
    Republican Foley ahead in governor race.

  17. People React to Bill Clinton’s Visit

    By Peggy Lee
    August 10, 2010

    Bill Clinton remains a popular figure in the Scranton area, which is the hometown of his father-in-law Hugh Rodham.

    A rally for Joe Sestak was held Tuesday at the Scranton High School, and dozens came out to hear the former president speak on his behalf.

    Before the rally President Clinton made a quick stop at the Glider Diner. President Clinton popped into the popular eating place just before heading to a rally.

    Kayla Buckley works at the Glider Diner and was able to snap several pictures of Clinton during his visit at the restaurant. “It’s my third time meeting President Clinton and just every time it’s exciting. I got to meet Chelsea two years back, at Bloomsburg University and he was down there as well,” said Buckley. “He lost a lot of weight, he looks a little bit older, but he looks good and in shape. He came in got a diet coke. Everybody was extremely excited about the situation and I was probably not even 10 feet away,” added Buckley.

    Over at Scranton High School former President Clinton showed that he still knows how to get a crowd going.

    Those who came to the rally said Clinton may no longer be in the White House, but he is still in their hearts.

    “Oh I just love Bill Clinton, I was a Hilary girl all the way, and I just love the fact that Bill came out. He looks great, he looks phenomenal, and it’s just so nice that he came to Scranton,” said Barb Zangre of Pittston.

    Clinton has a very busy evening Tuesday night in Pennsylvania. He has a rally in the Lehigh Valley for another congressional candidate. After that he will be at a fundraiser in Philadelphia for gubernatorial candidate Dan Onorato.,0,3965328.story

  18. Chelsea Clinton, Marc Mezvinsky Honeymooning In South Africa?


    Chelsea Clinton and her new husband pulled off a very public yet very private wedding (they did reserve the airspace above Rhinebeck, after all) a few weeks ago, so they deserve some R&R.

    Where in the world could you go to escape the possibility of paparazzi photographing your honeymoon? Sources say the newlyweds are spending some time in South Africa (where papa Bill just watched the World Cup), according to WWD.

    Bill Clinton’s camp declined to comment on Monday, but sources say that the couple is on safari there.

  19. JanH, Maybe they’ll find Obama’s birth certificate, LOL! Wonder why South Africa is the destination??

  20. Colorado 58.4%

    Bennet 54.3
    Romanoff 45.7

    Georgia 90.9%
    Deal 50.8
    Handel 49.2

    Lamont loses 42%
    Malloy 58%

    McMahon 47.9%
    Simmons 29.7%

  21. looks like newt is not going be president…

    worth reading… enough about his negatives to bury him in my opinion.

    “But there was something strange and needy about him. “He was impressed easily by position, status, money,” she says. “He grew up poor and always wanted to be somebody, to make a difference, to prove himself, you know. He has to be historic to justify his life.”

    She says she should have seen the red flags. “He asked me to marry him way too early. And he wasn’t divorced yet. I should have known there was a problem.”

    Within weeks or months?

    “Within weeks.”

    That’s flattering.

    She looks skeptical. “It’s not so much a compliment to me. It tells you a little bit about him.”

    And he did the same thing to her eighteen years later, with Callista Bisek, the young congressional aide who became his third wife. “I know. I asked him. He’d already asked her to marry him before he asked me for a divorce. Before he even asked.”

    He told you that?

    “Yeah, he wanted to — ”

    But she stops. “Hey, turn off the tape recorder for a second. This is going to go places …””

  22. Wonderful post Admin!!!

    “Bill and Hillary have their eye on the ball, as do we. Let the Pixel Left make public idiots of themselves by thinking that Bill and Hillary Clinton are helping Obama. Bill and Hillary Clinton are helping us to rid the country of Obama and Obamaism and Obama thugs. ”

    The only touch I would add to make it a good visual is a photo of Barrys head, with a used condom on his head like a dunce cap.

    Flush the Fraud in 2012, deodorize the Oval Office with Madam President Hillary Rodham Clinton.

  23. McMahon is the Republican nominee for Senate from Connecticut. Blumenthal will run against her.

    Georgia 93.3% in
    Deal 50.6%
    Handel 49.4%

    Colorado 59.4%
    Bennet 54.4
    Romanoff 45.6

  24. Hopefully Romanoff can bring it within single digits….Bill’s endorsement, which was b/c of Romanoffs loyalty to Hillary and Bennett’s endorsing Obama, does not seem to be helping all that much:(

  25. Bennet’s an incumbent, its hard to unseat incumbents as you know. I’m not surprised, Bennet will probably lose to Buck in Nov anyway

  26. Handel’s supporters are growing optimistic. While Deal still leads by roughly 9,000 votes with 80 percent of precincts reporting, Fulton County is still largely absent while Hall County has reported 99 percent of its precincts.

    In Fulton, where Handel is, and must, win big, about two-thirds of the votes actually cast today have been reported. But 0 percent of early and absentee ballots have been.

    Overall, Fulton County reports only a quarter of its total precincts as being counted.

    Handel may yet win, she’s winning this massive county by 70 to 30% and only 70% in.

    great photos of Hillary…she is the hardest working woman in the USA…
    Love these photos of our girl. So many where she smiles, laughs and when sitting ‘next’ to Barry at a table (as far away from him as possible) she keeps her distance like he has cooties and she wants to slap him at any minute.

  28. Bennet wins tonight. Loses in November. Thanks to Andrew Romanoff for making Bennet penniless tonight. Thanks Bill.

  29. BC sent a letter supporting Romanoff–Obama visited Bennet in person according to Fox. Perhaps Bill should have appeared in person?

    Also, Fox was saying that Benet won with early ballots that were sent in..

  30. jbstonesfan, All Bill did was send a fundraising letter on Romanoff’s behalf, which alone helped him get back in the race. As you say, that was a thank-you for his loyalty to Hillary.

    BTW, those wedding details are great!!! So you knew someone who attended? Cool!!! 🙂

  31. See I told you, because the numbers had Romanoff ahead and then it turned the exact opposite with the numbers staying the same…

    He cheated with the absentee ballots and the media called it early. We are so screwed, no one crosses the “ONE”. WHY???

    From a friend of my wife’s mother:
    Loved the update on the wedding, thanks for posting.
    Didn’t understand much about the Jewish wedding stuff, except lifting Hillary and Bill in chairs and the broken glass. 😉

    early ballots, filled out by acorn…………
    😆 Probably true!

  34. Damn, I’ve been too lazy to post my prediction but better hurry, before real life transpires ahead of me.

    As for the deep dark plot behind Cordoba House, my prediction:

    Who can doubt the secret hid
    Under Cheop’s pyramid
    Is that the contractor did
    Cheops out of several millions.
    — Kipling

    And here’s someone else predicting in the same direction:

  35. Greta was just talking about Colorado, Barry vs Bill…she said, the canned talk by Bill was kind of boring, he is normally so good at this, wondering why this wasn’t his typical speech.
    Santorie (SP) and Greta thought either Bill was still tired from the wedding, maybe didn’t want to make it a big deal fighting with barryboy.

    She also said, 60% of the votes were mailed in 6 weeks ago, and the battle became heated more recently.

    I didn’t think he gave a speech for him, just a letter. Is that wrong?

  37. I’m not sure what Greta’s talking about there. Bill didn’t campaign for Romanoff beyond sending a letter of endorsement. He campaigned today for Joe Sestak, but that was in PA.

  38. 60% of Colorado votes were mailed in six weeks ago…interesting.

    Has this happened in Colorado before…is that how it’s normally done in that state?

    60% of Colorado votes were mailed in six weeks ago…interesting.
    No clue, just reporting what was said. I do know there is a cut off for mail-in votes, maybe 6 weeks is the outside window?

  41. They are having a unity event in Colorado next week b/c of the huge spilt in the democratic camp over this election….sounds all too familiar.

  42. After candidates that BC supported in earlier campaigns won and recently it was reported that Clinton was more popular in the polls as a candidate supporter, I would imagine that BO and his handlers were determined to have a winning candidate by hook or crook or whatever it took…even if it took six
    weeks. 😉

  43. FOX poll: if you were a democrat running for public office who would you want to have come in and campaign for you?

    President Obama
    5.1% (125 votes)
    President Clinton
    89.4% (2,195 votes)
    Michelle Obama
    5.5% (134 votes)

  44. They are having a unity event in Colorado next week b/c of the huge spilt in the democratic camp over this election….sounds all too familiar
    Familiar yes. But also different, very different. It was alot easier to rally the troops around hope change and no more bush than it will be to rally those people now, who have seen the devastation wrought by Obama’s policies. I suspect there are some irreconcilable differences just below the surface. I believe the Republican will win, and if that is true, then we are back to the same old question, what is an Obama endorsement really worth? Nothing? Or less than nothing?

  45. admin linked this story on the previous thread. I didn’t know much about Newt other than what he did during the Clinton administration and now when I see him on Greta.. There is a lot of damning info in this article straight from the horse’s mouth as it were, his wife, mostly tidbits about being prone to mental problems. There is quite a lot for Obama to screw around with if this guy runs.

  46. Sandra Bullock gets smart:

    Levi Johnston wasted no time finding a date to the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday after breaking off his engagement to Bristol Palin. The Alaskan Romeo showed up on the red carpet at the event as the plus-one to singer Brittani Senser. However, sources tell me Levi actually had his eye on another lady in attendance: Sandra Bullock.

    “All night long Levi was trying to get close to Sandra,” an award show insider tells me. “He desperately wanted to get his picture taken with Sandra hoping it would show up on the cover of a magazine or at least be able to meet her in person and give America’s sweetheart his phone number. Sandra was having none of it, telling everyone, ‘Get him away from me.'”

    Levi, who clearly has no idea just how smart Sandra actually is, was seen making several futile attempts to catch her eye, all of which failed. Once he realized Sandra was out of his league, Levi was seen approaching at least three other female celebrities who also all refused to have their pictures taken with the fame-obsessed Alaskan.

    “Levi’s 15 minutes are definitely up but it seems no one has told him that yet,” a Hollywood manager tells me. “After what he did to Bristol recently he has gone from being a bad joke to just a bad guy. No one wants to be seen hanging out with him, and leaving everyone to scratch their heads asking how he actually got invited to Teen Choice to begin with.”

    So Brittani Senser, I’m not exactly sure I know who you are (besides being a singer who’ll star with Levi in a music video), but if you want to be known at all, you are going to have to stop inviting men like Levi to award shows with you. Even Kathy Griffin knows that this joke is played out.

    Next time invite a family member or one of those cute single guys off ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ anyone but Mr. Johnston!

  47. There is a big rift between the RNC and the grass roots. This guy is a grass roots blogger who makes infrequent appearances on mainstream media. He is bullish on the grass roots candidate, confident that he will win in November I think he is right. And he is not even counting on a rift in the democratic party which no unity rally can reasonably expect to heal.

    On December 21, 2009, I asked a very simple question:

    Why exactly must we support Jane Norton in Colorado instead of Ken Buck? I’m not saying I am or am not, but why must I? Lots of people think we must because the same guys in Washington who said Charlie Crist was our best hope in Florida say she is in Colorado.

    The blowback was tremendous. Lots of people immediately accused me of trying to hand Colorado to the Democrats.

    But like I did with Marco Rubio all the way back on March 19, 2009, and like I did with Mike Lee and Bob Bennett back in September of 2009, and Nikki Haley back in August of 2009, and like I did with Rand Paul back in March of this year, I have persevered for Ken Buck — sometimes despite more criticism than applause. RedState has persevered for Ken Buck too.

    We at RedState have beaten the bushes for Ken Buck. We have hounded third party groups to get involved for him. We have hounded organizations and people to sit on the sidelines when they leaned toward Norton.

    Jim DeMint jumped in for Ken. FreedomWorks jumped in for Ken. Gun Owners of America jumped in for Ken. The momentum built. The tide turned. And today I am very, very, very pleased to tell you Ken Buck is the Republican Senate nominee for Colorado.

    Now I have to tell you something I’ve said before, but few paid attention to. I am quite serious — this Senate primary has meant more to me than any of the others. I’ve gotten to know Ken and his wife. We’ve spent time together. I know in ways I cannot convey how desperately we need a guy like Ken Buck in the Senate with Jim DeMint.

    Looking at the trends in Colorado tonight, we’ll have him there. Ken Buck wins.

  48. One thing we need to desperately establish and make a norm in this country is to get rid of incumbency, no senator, representative or President should have a god given right to their seat, they should all be primaried and made to face a primary challenger, so the voters do have a party choice.

    I’m sick of this incumbency shit.

  49. Harry puts his foot in it again.

    Harry Reid: “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican.”

    While campaigning in Nevada Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told an audience of mostly Hispanic voters: “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, okay. Do I need to say more?” Watch the video here:(snip)

    Reid’s racially-charged comments come as the Nevada Democrat is trying to boost Hispanic turnout in his bid for reelection this November. Polls show, however, that Reid’s positions on immigration are very unpopular with Nevada voters in general. Reid supports the Obama administration’s lawsuit against Arizona over its immigration law, but 63 percent of Nevada voters oppose the lawsuit, according to a Rasmussen poll.

    Reid voted against a measure to complete a 700-mile fence along the Mexican border in May, but 68 percent of voters nationally support building a border fence, according to Rasmussen.

  50. from previous post.

    Update (11:35 p.m.): A statement from Sharron Angle’s deputy campaign manager Jordan Gehrke:

    “Reid has said he’ll do more if re-elected–apparently that means more insensitive racial comments, more gaffes, more lame attempts to distract from what he has done to destroy the Nevada economy. With that said, I suppose Nevadans should just be glad he didn’t say anything racist about Hispanic people’s skin tone or ‘dialect’ this time.”

    The last line is a reference to Reid’s comment that Barack Obama does not have a “negro dialect.” Reid apologized to Obama when his remark was published in a book in January of this year.

    Update (12:32 a.m.): Karl reminds us that Harry Reid voted for a “poison pill” amendment that killed that the 2007 immigration bill:

    Hispanic voters — and everyone else — ought to note that Harry Reid was a key vote in killing “comprehensive immigration reform” in 2007. So the answer to Reid’s question is “yes” — he does need to say a bit more, if only to explain why he put the interest of Big Labor ahead of “comprehensive immigration reform.”

  51. Mayor Bloomberg’s popularity rating has dropped to its lowest level in five years, in part because of his ardent defense of a proposed mosque several blocks from Ground Zero, according to a poll released yesterday.

    New Yorkers’ approval of their third-term mayor (pictured) dipped to 49 percent, down from 56 percent in April, as 53 percent of those surveyed said they disagree with his position on the mosque, according to the Marist survey.

    “The mosque is not doing him any good . . . He’s certainly on the wrong side of public opinion on that in the city,” said pollster Lee Miringoff, director of Marist College’s Institute for Public Opinion.

    Miringoff said the mosque was not the only driving force behind the 7-point dip in the mayor’s approval rating, noting the heaviest opposition to it comes from Republicans, who are largely still in Bloomberg’s camp.

    Of the Republicans polled, 74 percent were against building the mosque and an accompanying cultural center near Ground Zero, while half of the Democrats surveyed expressed opposition.

    President Obama and his family are scheduled to vacation on the island from Aug. 19 to Aug. 29.


    Would he actually like to do some work. Considering the amount of holidays the american worker gets annually, this guy takes the biscuit, he makes Bush look like he was on the job all the time.

    Amen to that! Well, we need term limits…and how do we get them to do that? They’re not going to legislate against their own self-interest. Besides, they spend more time working on their next campaign than working for us, as it is. If they were faced with more frequent primaries, the campaigning would be non-stop. I’m so sick of all of them, I could spit at them on sight!

  57. Here on Martha’s Vineyard many of are looking forward to the Fraud’s visit with real disgust, and we are planning to post welcome signs in the middle of the night that we haven’t the suicidal urge to post in broad daylight. Any suggestions as to content of the proposed signs are most welcome.

  58. I can’t help but think that BC was thinking about the eventual outcome. Better to lose now, amoung the party, and help HRC candidates win Generals, than to have a pixx contest with O, when in the end they would lose. With as little effort as BC gave, the candidate did really well.

  59. Does he actually do anything at all. I’m 100% sure that Obama is just the infomercial man with a nothing more than a desk in the office to make the office look legit but really the thing is run from behind the curtain.

    Like one of those sham front companies with a desk in reception and a receptionist and nothing behind the reception door but empty office space.

  60. I heard a phrase on Covert Actions last night, that show about the CIA, which was they do things in their careers to Sacrifice for the Greater Good. I believe that phrase is used to cover a multitude of sins. I know that is how many Dims justified voting for O.

    However, in my estimations, there is never a reason to stop the voter, and the democracy from working, which is what O did in the primary. Many sleep at night by thinking that phrase to themselves, I did it for the greater good. Better to have a Dem in there than a Rep.

    But people never go back and analyze whether it was for the greater good. That is exactly what the party structure is counting on. When I see how both side manipulate people, I worry about my Democracy. Obviously, party members do not.

    Does he actually do anything at all.

    Here is your answer. These are the people trying to run a country.

    It got so bad last December that President Obama and Emanuel would joke that, when it was all over, they were going to open a T-shirt stand on a beach in Hawaii. It would face the ocean and sell only one color and one size. “We didn’t want to make another decision, or choice, or judgment,” Emanuel tells Purdum. They took to beginning staff meetings with Obama smiling at Emanuel and simply saying “White,” and Emanuel nodding back and replying “Medium.”

    Well, NYTimes is touting this as a big win for Obama(gag):
    I do not need to read the article to know what is in it. Normally, I would not opine on a subject if I have not read it. That would be something Holder would do. But in this case, why read it at all. It is the same one sided tripe and censorship we have seen from them fro over two years. I am sure your conclusion says it all–a big win for Bambi. That said, what we are really dealing with here is a good old fashioned non-sequitur. It would be a “big win” for Bamai if and only if the polling for Benet shot up AFTER Bambi made his appearance, but if my information is correct, Bennett’s numbers went down ever since. Also, they have gone down since Bill Clinton campaigned for his opponent. Either way this can hardly be construed as a big win, unless you define a big win as anytime your candidate did not lose. But the real truth here can be seen in the FOX poll on the effect of an Obama campaign appearance. Why/ Because that is where the Independents and Republicans go for news. Even in the democratic party his support is fracturing. This looks to me like his Dunkirk with no rescue boats at hand.

  63. wow (rubbing my hands in glee). That T-shirt stand quote in the Vanity Fair article is going to come back and haunt them. Can’t wait. If the Obama people thought that article would generate sympathy for them, they are going to be mildly surprised. What wimps and cry babies.

    Look at the predictable comments:
    “We didn’t want to make another decision, or choice, or judgment . . .” I don’t much want them to, either. Perhaps they could go ahead and switch to the t-shirt business sooner, rather than later.

  64. and Bambi is back to freefall again………………

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 24% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-six percent (46%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -22 (see trends).

    Overall, 43% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s performance. Fifty-six percent (56%) disapprove. The Rasmussen Reports Media Meter shows that media coverage of President Obama has been 55% positive over the past week. Coverage of the president has become significantly more positive over the past week.

    Obviously, he and his staff did not know what leading from day one was all about. However, the SOS is doing just fine, and has from day one.

  66. This guy seems to have a good theory.

    Obama’s feeling sorry for himself

    I strongly suspect that Obama has led a life in which he has *always* been able to find the easy way out, and up till now this has always worked for him. Look at his biography – sure, his mother’s troubles are well documented, but at an early age he went to live with his wealthy hawaiian grandparents, one of whom was a bank vice president. Come on – even as a kid, he lived the dream that the rest of us could only fantasize about. He went to one of the best prep schools in the state. Then he partied his way through his undergrad degree at Occiental – notice how the records have never been released? (well, there’s that possible Indonesian Exchange Student thing) But he presented well, and he got someone big to clear his way to Harvard (he didn’t do it on his own, no way)

    Now I want to make a point about his Harvard career that I haven’t seen made before, because I think it is a very close parrallel to what is happening with Obama’s Presidency: At Harvard, he became editor of the Law Review through a combination of grades and a popularity contest – but although you know he didn’t produce any articles, most don’t quite realize the significance of this. The reason that Editor of the Law Review at any law school is so prestigious is that it gives that person the right to pick and author the most prestigious and significant research that may be open at the time. This in turn is used as a hiring marker for the various judicial clerkships and big Wall Street firms – the successful author of a lead article will literally have his choice of positions.

    It is Unheard of for someone to rise to this position and then to just kick back and do nothing at all but coast through a years worth of meetings with his feet on the table – but that is exactly what Obama did. He never wrote anything, and although I haven’t verified this, I suspect he is the only Harvard Law Review editor who has never written any actual research. It was an astounding failure, but not just a failure – it was a total lack of effort.

    This is why he never went on to any senior judicial clerkship, which he should have done, and why he never went to any big law firm but instead ended up with some community activist group in Chicago. Potential employers looked at his record and saw a very glib and well spoken screw-off. Well, guys like that are a dime a dozen in this world. That’s why his legal career failed.

    He still had his gift of gab and good looks, which is always useful in machine politics. Since then, he’s had a helping hand pushing him from one legislative office to another – he’s never actually had to do any work. He didn’t have to raise the money, other people did that, he didn’t come up with the strategy, Axelrod did that, he didn’t have to build the organization, other people did that for him. He has *never* had to do anything in his life besides show up and take the easy way out. Somehow he managed to ride this incredible run of good luck all the way up to the Presidency, and he has never in his life had to do anything but show up, smile, and say some vaguely reassuring words to his fans.

    And now, for the very first time in his life, he has to face the reality that there is no easy way out. He has literally never been truly responsible for *anything* in his life up to this point – Heck of a time to think about growing up!!! I suspect he’s going to do the same thing as he did at the Harvard law Review – now that something is being required of him, I think he’s going to put his feet up on the desk and just pretend that everything is going to work out. And when it doesn’t he’ll search for someone to blame rather than fixing anything, which is always the other easy way out. And when that doesn’t work, he’ll find a way to quit, if not literally, then at least in real terms. Just as he did at Harvard.

    That’s my prediction. What is Obama going to do when things get really bad? He’s going to make Herbert Hoover look like an activist, that’s what he’s going to do. Because he doesn’t have it in him to do anything else, and he never did. Oh, he’ll have plenty of underlings that will try stuff – Emmanual and Pelosi and Reid, oh my. But they’ll all be at cross purposes and will all be at each others throats while Obama is smiling and waving and pretending that Prosperity is Just Around the Corner. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if, by 2011, he doesn’t start finding ways to spend most of his time outside of the country.

    Now how we deals with his own supporters once this administration collapses into incoherent incompetence is going to be the most interesting game to watch. They’re already starting to figure out that things aren’t going well – when they finally realize they’ve been snookered by a false messiah things could get very ugly indeed.”


    I think he may be on to something.

  67. moonpluto

    At this level, you have to have a leader. With Bush it was Chaney that really kicked axx and took names. However, O really thinks he can lead, and he vassilates like a leaf in a breeze. He also, as that write up points out, takes the path of least resistance, and does the easy parts of the job, or the parts of the job he likes. He gets out of the job before people really take action. I have seen these people, and when they hit the wall, sometimes they do not get out fast enough.

    Much of this appeared before in an article entitled Obama is a Flake, in The American Thinker. I agree with it, subject to this caveat: one should never underestimate the ability of big media to reshaper reality, and his handlers to generate false crises, and his thieves to steal elections, and the inordinate stupidity to the American People who voted this prince of fools into the highest elective office in the land and made him leader of the World. Unbelievable.

    I was talking to a Wall Street guy earlier in the week who is not an Obama supporter. He said he is not disappointed at all in Obama–he is the same joke we knew he was and anyone who did their homework is not surprised. What disappointed him is that the American People–and rightly so. In my town you can still tell Obama supporters. They have not taken down their bumper stickers, which shows how impervious they are to logic, reason, facts, common sense, feedback from reality. Some of these people are older people down on their luck, some are hippies on social security and many of them are young people who think they are smart but haven’t a clue. Unmarried women are particularly susceptible to the Obama delusion.

    I also spoke to his associate who button holed me at the elevator. He told me that he and his wife are planning to start a family, but they are very worried about what the world will look like for the next generation based on what Mr. Obama and his minions are doing to our country. So much of it is invisible now–it is like a time release poison. The public will get a better feel for this after the election, when Alan Simpson and the other doctor doom tell us what needs to be cut, and a democratically controlled congress which is too cowardly to produce a budget prior to the election–which is the negation of accountability is finally forced to do so. Meanwhile several state bankruptcies are at hand.

    In 2010 Ambinder wrote about his experience with bariatric surgery, which reduced his weight from 235 to 150 pounds. [1]
    He is a very young leftist. And like many of his ilk he has infiltrated big media. This is why you get the kind of reporting you get from big media. I can also see that his real area of expertise is not politics, but weight loss by extraordinary means. I am sure he and Michelle could converse on that subject at the next White House cocktail party.

    Blame Biden for Obama’s troubles?

    Jeannie DeAngelis

    Obama’s free fall continues as the President’s hair turns gray right before America’s eyes. Now the political party famous for shunning personal responsibility is desperately searching for someone other than Barry to blame.

    It’s obvious, desperate people do desperate things and right now desperation is afoot in Democrat circles. As a result, “the most likely victim appears to be gaffe-prone Vice President Joe Biden, who has become the focus of speculation that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton just might replace him on the 2012 Democratic ticket.”

    Virginia’s first African-American former governor Doug Wilder admitted that, without a scapegoat, favored son Barack is in danger of losing the next election. Wilder suggests the “audacious change” of choosing Hillary as a running mate in 2012.

    Wilder laments,

    “Since the heady days of the 2009 Inauguration, middle-class independents have grown increasingly distant from Obama. Working-class voters – always more enamored of Clinton – have grown even more wary and distrustful of the Chicagoan. Both voting blocs pose the danger of serious defection in 2012. Without their support, Obama cannot win.”

    Doug Wilder doesn’t blame Obama’s failed policies, elitist attitude or refusal to listen to the American people. Instead hapless fall guy and faithful train rider Joe Biden is faulted. The former governor charges Biden with “undermin[ing] what little confidence the public may have had in him.” Wilder then suggests Obama jettison Joe and enlist Hillary as a 2012 running mate.

    Wilder believes that, unlike Biden, Hillary has performed her role as Secretary of State well, asserting “Clinton has been nothing but a team player who has earned good marks since being asked to serve as secretary of state.” Doug Wilder is firmly convinced having Clinton on the presidential ticket “would revive the Democratic Party and reestablish … working-class voters who found her appealing during the 2012 primaries against Mr. Obama.”

    Thus, a dismal letdown of a President will attempt to wangle another victory on the back of the woman in a salmon-colored pantsuit. Hope is grownup Hillary will answer 3:00 a.m. crisis calls, freeing up Barry to do the salsa with Thalia.

    Liberal “pundits jumped on Mr. Wilder’s comments and expressed near-universal approval.” MSNBC’s Chris “I felt this thrill go up my leg” Matthews stopped hyperventilating about Obama’s speaking ability long enough to moderate a panel discussion to bandy about the Clinton VP suggestion.

    “Howard Fineman of Newsweek said Mrs. Clinton would likely accept second place on the 2012 ticket “in a second,” better known as a New York “carpetbagger” minute.

    New York magazine reporter John Heilemann said the major obstacle would be to “figure out a way for Biden to slide aside happily.” Heilemann suggested Mr. Biden replace Mrs. Clinton as Secretary of State, which would deliver to the larger global community the folksy warmth the world presently lacks.

    Heilemann contends Obama might want “a steadier hand at his side for his re-election campaign.” Heilemann predicts Republicans are going to speak the truth and say, ‘Look, you hired this guy. He was too young for this job. He didn’t know what he was doing. He didn’t have the experience, and look what’s happened.'”

    Liberal consensus appears to be that truth telling about Obama will place Mama Hillary in an ideal position to rush in wearing a pair of sensible pumps and save the Democrat day.

    Even so, there is one key question the Hillary-for-VP supporters failed to address: If Obama/Clinton actually win the 2012 election, how well will Barry govern the nation after spending every night sleeping with his eyes open?

    Navy backs Clinton diplomacy

    William R. Hawkins

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sparked strong Chinese protests when she told last month’s meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) that America has “a national interest in freedom of navigation, open access to Asia’s maritime commons, and respect for international law in the South China Sea.” Beijing likes to claim the entire area as a “territorial sea.” Vietnamese, Philippine and Malaysian officials had voiced their concerns to the U.S. about China’s claims to places like the Paracel and Spratley islands, ownership of which confers oil and mineral rights in the adjacent seabeds. The South China Sea is also the principle trade route for the nations of the Pacific Rim.

    Global Times, a publication of the ruling Chinese Communist Party, argued Aug. 10,

    The US is returning to Southeast Asia with a clear political agenda. It is trying to expand US influence and strengthen cooperation with countries in the region, but seeds of distrust are also being planted with its attempt to contain China. Countries around the region must see these tactics for what they are.

    Yet, the editorial also noted, “Quickly after the US stated that the South China Sea is of US national interest, Vietnam began intensifying its protest against China’s legitimate activities in the disputed waters.” The party newspaper asserted, “Traditionally, China was the central power broker in the region, backed by its cultural influence and advanced productivity.” One might also add military power. The week after Clinton’s remarks in Hanoi, Beijing held a major sea and air exercise in the South China Sea. On Aug. 8, theForeign Ministry stated, “China firmly opposes any remarks and actions that violate its sovereignty over the Xisha Islands and the adjacent waters.”

    The question was whether President Barack Obama would back his Secretary of State, who is known to favor a more active policy than he does. In the face of strong Chinese protests against holding joint U.S.-South Korean naval exercises as a show of force against North Korea, the maneuvers were limited to the Sea of Japan and stayed out of the Yellow Sea which Beijing also claims are territorial waters.

    The answer came this last weekend, as the Strike Group led by the nuclear aircraft carrier George Washington sailed through the South China Sea to the waters off the Vietnamese coast. A delegation of Vietnamese military and government officials were invited aboard the carrier. The guided missile destroyer John S. McCain docked at Danang, the main U.S. Marine base during the Vietnam War. The U.S. and Vietnam navies then conducted joint drills. The message to Beijing could not have been more clear.

    And to give China something else to worry about, last Thursday the Pentagon said “the USS George Washington will exercise in the Yellow Sea” as part of a future joint exercises with South Korea. A month ago, Defense officials would not even mention the Yellow Sea by name. Beijing again protested any deployment of a carrier group off the western coast of Korea. But as an Aug. 5 Global Times editorial admitted, “China has fewer means to counter the US than the US can use against China.”

  74. wbboei, here you go, it is a classic, my all time favorite. The author predicted that Obama will lose but he underestimated the stupidity of the Dem electorate and the corruption of the media. In fairness though, we all waited for the other shoe to drop which never did.
    Yes, pm 317. His premise was fundamentally sound. What he did not anticipate was the stock market crash, which altered the election results. Would a man like Soros who engineered a Nobel Prize for doing nothing, who has crashed the British Pound and the Asian Markets during the 1990s, and who was the prime architect of Obama’s candidacy going back to the Dean Plan not crash the market not at any time but on the eve of an election when his opponent was ahead in the polls? Gee, that is a tough one. Knowing it is one thing. Proving it is something else.

    Well he would probably be doing more than he is doing now.

  76. I Am Not Going Away
    Johh Batchelor
    No Quarter

    Now we know the up-to-date answer to the question, “What’s the worst that can happen?” to the Democrats.
    Not only is Charlie Rangel convincing and clever, but he is also defiant and immovable on the floor of the House as he delivers a soliloquy for Hollywood script writers that will be celebrated in the history of the Congress.

    This is the “You want me, copper, come and get me!” defense that works for Jimmy Cagney and other famous cops and robbers leading men.

    The facts are not critical. Charlie Rangel has been doing favors for his pals and constituents for more than fifty years. Good for Charlie.

    His misbehavior under review is tax and crony problems. Shrug. The puzzlement here is why this melodrama is now in front of the cameras? Did Nancy Pelosi order this in train after the March flap over the chair of Ways and Means, when she elbowed Rangel out of a powerful position he had waited forty years to assume? Did the White House bless this mess?

    The self-destruction of the Democratic majority is a mystery. You cannot make this stuff up times ten.

    Adam Clayton Powell was driven from the same seat by an indifferent Congressional leadership in 1968. Now Charlie Rangel is shown the door by an indifferent Congressional leadership in 2010. Time for the third act curtain.

    “If I can’t get my dignity back here,” Rangel said, “then fire your best shot at getting rid of me through expulsion.”
    And then there is this, by Frank James

    Rep. Charlie Rangel, the New York Democrat currently under an ethical cloud, took to the House floor Tuesday to plead his case.

    His 37-minute floor speech has been described by some who watched the whole thing as “rambling.”

    Being accused of giving an imperfectly formed speech however is the least of Rangel’s problems. He faces 13 counts of violating House ethics rules, including using his office to raise money for a public service center at City College of New York to be named after him and not properly disclosing income or paying taxes when they were first due.

    Some fellow Democrats have wished, not too loudly but enough to be heard, that Rangel would retire and not jeopardize his party’s chances of holding onto its House majority.

    Rangel, former chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, dashed such hopes, though, saying “I am not going away.”

    He demanded an expedited hearing in order, he says, to clear his name since while he made mistakes, he publicly maintains he didn’t violate House ethics rules.

    Of some of the ethics missteps he’s been accused of, he said:

    “It may be stupid, it may be negligent, but it’s not corrupt.

    Needless to say, that’s not exactly a line many Democrats would like to run for re-election on.

  77. I have talked to some Dims on Os performance, and they think it is just a question of people not realizing how much he has accomplished. What they fail to understand is a lot of the crap he did was just window dressing, and he really had either failed at tackling the hard issues, or not done with the hard issues what he promised, such as public option in health care.

    It reminds me of the incident during the primary with Canada, in which what was coming out of his mouth and his intentions are two different things. We all saw that, so I have not sympathy for the O supporters. Just like in a failed marriage, they will continue to make excuses, until they get fed up, and decide to walk out the door. Some of them are already doing that. He has placed some women in key positions for looks only, and then not taken their advice. In fact taken the advice of men who were less knowledgeable. Yes, many women don’t even notice that, let alone get outraged.

  78. wbboei 12:17 pm

    Have the Dems finally challenged (thrown under the bus) someone that will not go quietly. In fact might down right fight thm very publically. I guess I will believe that when I see them. Most of the Dims seem like sheep, sacrificing for the greater good.

    MOP, That is a horrible story….I think this is why Hillary wants the Taliban out of there…there will never be peace for a woman as long as this Sharia Law is installed.

    I would love for Hillary to come out aganist the 9/11 mosque. Probably can’t but one can wish.

    Did Handel win?

    The campaign is over, but the election is not.

    Handel skipped GOP unity breakfast before conceding defeat
    The Georgia Republican gubernatorial runoff stretched into Wednesday and perhaps the rest of the week as Nathan Deal led Karen Handel by fewer than 3,000 votes when Tuesday ended in a race too close to call. The ultimate winner will face Democrat Roy Barnes and Libertarian John Monds in November.

    Both candidates spoke to supporters during the 11 p.m. news hour, and neither was willing to declare victory, or defeat.

    “If I’d worked a little harder, you wouldn’t have had to stay here all night,” Deal said to several hundred supporters at the Gainesville Civic Center. “We’re still waiting. We’re still ahead in the numbers. We are encouraged at the totals we’ve seen. We hope they will hold. We look forward to seeing the conclusion of it in the very near future.”

    Handel then made her way to the front of the ballroom at the W Hotel Buckhead. Sounding tired, but hopeful, Handel urged the several hundred supporters with her to do the same.

    “What an incredible, incredible night,” she said. “I came down here to say thank you. You’ve been following all the numbers. I think it’s going to be a little bit longer. There are a lot of absentee ballots still out there to be counted. [We will] keep our fingers crossed and be optimistic.”

    Handel spokesman Dan McLagan said his candidate would skip the traditional morning-after round of television interviews and will not be attending a planned Republican “unity breakfast” scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Wednesday in Buckhead. Deal said he would come to Atlanta for both.

    The two candidates were locked in a near dead heat for much of the night, although at times Deal broke out to a 10,000-vote lead. More than 575,000 votes were cast Tuesday, and Deal saw midnight strike with him leading by about 2,500 votes…

  81. Have the Dems finally challenged (thrown under the bus) someone that will not go quietly. In fact might down right fight thm very publically. I guess I will believe that when I see them. Most of the Dims seem like sheep, sacrificing for the greater good.
    Yes. And the beauty of it is they cannot play the race card in this instance, as they would definitely do if the challenger was white.

  82. Not good reading for the Dem leadership

    57% of Likely Voters Describe Democratic Congressional Agenda As Extreme

    Most U.S. voters believe the Democratic congressional agenda is extreme, while a plurality describe the Republican agenda as mainstream.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters think the agenda of Democrats in Congress is extreme. Thirty-four percent (34%) say it is more accurate to describe the Democratic agenda as mainstream.

    Voters are more narrowly divided when it comes to the agenda of congressional Republicans. Forty-five percent (45%) of voters view the GOP agenda as mainstream, but nearly as many (40%) say it’s more accurate to call it extreme. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided.

    The Political Class, however, has dramatically different views of the agendas of the two parties from what Mainstream voters think. Ninety-one percent (91%) of the Political Class say the Democratic agenda in Congress is in the mainstream, but 70% of Mainstream voters see that agenda as extreme.

    While 53% of Mainstream voters see the Republican congressional agenda as in the mainstream, 81% of Political Class voters regard it as extreme.

    Sixty-seven percent (67%) of male voters regard the Democratic congressional agenda as extreme, as do a plurality (48%) of women. While 51% of men see the GOP agenda as mainstream, women are evenly divided over whether that agenda is mainstream or extreme.

    Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 73% say the agenda of Democrats in Congress is extreme. By a 47% to 38%, these voters regard the Republican agenda as mainstream.

    Seventy-seven percent (77%) of liberals view the Democratic agenda as mainstream. Sixty-nine percent (69%) of conservatives say the same of the GOP agenda. Moderates by a narrow margin tend to view the agendas of both parties as more extreme than mainstream.

  83. on that Rassmussen poll, The Dems are going to lose big in Nov, the Men and independents seem to have had it with the Dem Agenda in Congress.

  84. Novemember will, at a minimum, end the super majority…it is 2012 that I am more concerned about. They (repubs) still do not have a mainstream candidate who can beat Obama..

  85. Good day everyone. Just watched a segment on Megyn Kelly’s show with a headline that read “Hillary Clinton Fans want her to Run with Obama 2012”

    Barf. Now, the story line (for those who did not see it) was from Monica Crowley stating that Hil would run against Obama. After the usual stabs at the ego of the Clintons, she seems to think this will be the case. All that aside….I would sure like to know who these HRC Fans ARE who want her to run with HIM (made up out of whole cloth) but more interestingly, has anyone noticed that MOST of this type of talk is coming from the right? It’s not exactly like Sharia-Lite Olberman and Matthews are out there rooting for an Obumbles-Clinton Ticket.

  86. Has anyone noticed the awful optics of obama signing the 26 billion dollar education bill which is “revenue neutral” because it takes food away from children while surrounded by those gleeful heavy women. Isn’t that a metaphor for the bloat and greed of the public sector employees at the expense of the rest of us and our children. And I have to add, and their children, and their children, as far as the eye can see.

    I am heavy myself so don’t start.

  87. jbstonesfan

    You are right. After 2010 happens, and if the Dems lose the Rep majority, the next key step is who will the Reps run. If they run the same old Dogs, the Dems will relax and run O. However, if it is a face that excites the base and the independents, the Dems are going to have a hard decision to make.

    Despite hype Hillary Clinton has no interest in Vice Presidency

    The Hillary for vice president seems to be gaining momentum with several leading pundits weighing in behind former Virginia governor Douglas Wilder who has called for Joe Biden to be replaced.

    Howard Fineman on MSNBC said Hillary would take the job in a minute and Chris Matthews eagerly agreed.

    If this isn’t silly season madness then I don’t know what is.

    Joe Biden is safe as Obama’s running mate in 2012 bar some unforeseen catastrophe.

    Equally, Hillary Clinton will step down in a second Obama term. Secretary of State is a gruelling job and it is almost unheard of to stay two terms.

    But Hillary would no more trade the State Department for the Vice President slot than she will run again in 2016.

    Hillary has made an historic contribution to American politics, a great First Lady an even better senator and even her opponents agree an excellent Secretary of State.

    But by 2016 she will be 69 and way too old to run for president.

    She knows better than anyone the incredible pressure that a presidential run entails. She knows from personal experience what eight years in the White House can do to you as well.

    She has been in public service all her life, either by her husband’s side or in her own right.She deserves to kick back and enjoy her later years, hopefully with a grandchild or two, and her husband and daughter Chelsea.

    Here on Martha’s Vineyard many of are looking forward to the Fraud’s visit with real disgust, and we are planning to post welcome signs in the middle of the night that we haven’t the suicidal urge to post in broad daylight. Any suggestions as to content of the proposed signs are most welcome.

    Here’s a few off the top of my head:

    Mr. President, you were elected as our leader to put people back to work.
    Stop spending our future tax dollars and DO YOUR JOB!

    Mr. Obama, Hillary supporters haven’t forgotten your dirty tricks of 2008!
    You haven’t won back our support.

    How does it feel Mr. Obama, to be the Democratic President that has split our party in half?

    Mr. President, without the support of Hillary supporters, you will be a –
    One Term President.

    How’s that HOPE and CHANGE workin’ for ya Mr. President? They are just empty words to most American voters.

  90. Am I being selfish in expecting/wanting Hillary to be in public service forever?

    As much as I want her to be potus, I can’t help but think the above article strikes some right notes. Whether she kicks back or retires to do good works like her husband, maybe my dream of her running for potus is just pie in the sky.

    Well he would probably be doing more than he is doing now.

    It really ticks me off when jokes are made about Hillary wanting the Presidency so much that she will somehow kill Obama to get it. After the primary, white, male a-holes on MSM would joke that Hillary would never be picked to be Barry’s VP instead of Joe, because Hillary would poison Obama’s food.

    It is disgusting and small minded. (This isn’t directed against you NMF)

  92. BS is what I say to those that claim Hillary will be too old to run for President in 2016! Bull shit!!!

    No one cares how old a man is when he runs for President. The younger people will always use age or weight or sex as an excuse for them not being ‘good’ enough. If only under 30 people voted, that would be another issue.

    These people can keep drinking the kool-aid, while the adults step up and support the candidates with EXPERIENCE and INTELLIGENCE!!

    Hillary will not get out of politics, just like Bill has NOT gotten out of politics. This is their passion, along with making life better for all.

  93. shadowfax,

    I’m not saying she will be too old. I’m just saying that just because I want her to run again doesn’t mean she will. And honestly, I have no idea if she will stay in politics or go.

  94. I like this move of Paterson offering to give land for the Mosque not so closeto ground zero…there is no reason they should not accept this offer imo…..

  95. Hillary will be younger than Ronnie Raygun if she runs in 2016′. If Obama keeps working the crap out of her she may be too worn out for the position, but she won’t be too old to run.

  96. I think Hillary has to look at the pros and cons. Her run for Presisnet was historic and has elevated her to a status greater than most world leaders. If she runs again and loses, it would diminish that imo. Also, people may be so fed up with the Dems (assuming OBie runs and wins) they may go hard right just as they went hard left after the disater that was Bush. It is a very difficult decision.

  97. I want to go on record as saying that Shepard Smith on FOX is a disgusting piece of poop!!! The fugitives “supposedly” are now in Arkansas. As he reported ARKANSAS, Mr. Smith put on a horrible hick accent. Then he reported that the two are first cousins and fiancees and said he wouldn’t go there with the jokes with it being Arkansas and all or some such.

    Bill Clinton was born and raised in Arkansas, Shepard Smith. So do you consider him a stupid hick…wrong question considering many Republicans and those “elites” at FOX used to call him Bubba and make fun of his home state.

    Sheppard, try to rise above your nasty personality and have some respect for everyone’s home state and birth place.

    I, for one, am very proud of my home state. Oh, and Shep, go visit Arkansas and see for yourself that the citizens of Arkansas do actually wear shoes, are extremely friendly, bend over backwards to help others, learned to respect their elders and love their families and home. And shockingly, Shep, there are very intelligent, highly educated, very successful people in Arkasnas. Whether you like Wal-Mart or not, it is successful and the founder was from…of all places… Arkansas?

    So back off, ol’ Shep.

    None of us really know what Hillary will do, but I can almost guarantee that Hillary will not run again, not because of her age, but because of one of two reasons:

    1- Something happens to her or her family, health reasons for example or

    2- If she thinks the DNC will pull the rug out from under her again.

    Other than those reasons, she will run again.

  99. Classy politicians…nice

    NHGOP Denounces NH Dem Candidate’s Palin Death Wish (“too bad Palin wasn’t on Steven’s plane)

    CONCORD – The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today denounced Democrat NH House candidate Keith Halloran’s public death wish for former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The Party also called on Governor John Lynch and Congressional Candidate Ann McLane Kuster to personally denounce his hateful remarks and call for him to apologize to the Palin family.

    In a Facebook post yesterday regarding the tragic plane crash that killed former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, Halloran wrote, “Just wish Sarah and Levy [sic] were on board.” Levi Johnston is the father of Governor Palin’s grandson (RedHampshire, 8/11).

    “Mr. Halloran’s outrageous comments are a new low, even by the standards of the New Hampshire Democrat Party,” said NHGOP Communications Director Ryan Williams. “His publicly stated death wish for Governor Palin and her family is abhorrent, and has no place in our public discourse. Governor Lynch and Ann McLane Kuster need to immediately denounce Mr. Halloran’s hateful remarks and demand that he personally apologize to the Palin family.”

    Mr. Halloran served on the Rindge, NH planning board. He is running as a Democrat for State Representative this year in Cheshire County House District 7. He describes himself as “an active local citizen and supporter of NH Governor John Lynch” (Jaffrey, Rindge, Dublin Democrats Committee website). Mr. Halloran is also a prominent supporter of Second Congressional District Candidate Ann McLane Kuster.

  100. In haste, haven’t caught up.

    So, some Muslim financiers who have a white elephant real estate investment are trying to get up donations to build something, anything, Ah, we’ll let people call it a ‘mosque’ and get some publicity.

    Then along comes the other guy threatening to build a gay Muslim building next to it. Pretty soon I suppose the televangeists will want to build their buildings there too.

    The real deep dark plotters — those who own adjoining white elephant properties. Great way to revitalize property values in the whole block.

  101. Assume for the sake of argument that: i) Hillary still wants to be president, ii) she knows 2016 is unrealistic, iii) Obama polling numbers are on life support, iv) the people who put him in there realize he cannot go the distance, vi) Obama is blamed for the loss of Congress, vii) Obama is blamed for the coming depression, viii) Obama tries to maneuver around Congress through executive orders, ix) an impeachment action against him is started in the House, x) the people who put him in there and have covered for him up to this point are themselves being blamed, and xii) those same people are now begging Hillary to accept the Vice Presidency. On the odds, some of that will happen, and/or is already happening.

    Now suppose you are Hillary. Suppose you have a resume second to none. Suppose the elites now say I wish I had supported you. In that case the first question could well be where is the best position for me to be in, which avoids an internal party fight and unites the party? The second question might well be not should I accept this offer or shouldn’t I. Rather, it might be knowing Obama as I do, and not trusting him any more than anyone else does, under what conditions would I consider a proposal to be his vice president, that give me the autonomy I need to address the problems of this country and pave the way for me to be president in 2012. That might well be your price to accept the job.

    As a supporter, that is the scenario that concerns me as an interested by-stander. It is the classic faustian pact. And it puts her on the wrong ship going in the wrong direction. But it is also the temptation of power. If she declines and he fails she is still viable and she cannot be blamed for his failure. That is my best argument against it.

  102. As a former teacher who went to school when this is how we were taught, I endorse this article by Jay Prager from townhalldotcom:

    If every school principal gave this speech at the beginning of the next school year, America would be a better place.

    To the students and faculty of our high school:

    I am your new principal, and honored to be so. There is no greater calling than to teach young people.

    I would like to apprise you of some important changes coming to our school. I am making these changes because I am convinced that most of the ideas that have dominated public education in America have worked against you, against your teachers and against our country.

    First, this school will no longer honor race or ethnicity. I could not care less if your racial makeup is black, brown, red, yellow or white. I could not care less if your origins are African, Latin American, Asian or European, or if your ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower or on slave ships.

    The only identity I care about, the only one this school will recognize, is your individual identity — your character, your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this school will care about is American. This is an American public school, and American public schools were created to make better Americans.

    If you wish to affirm an ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have to go elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity-, race- and non-American nationality-based celebrations. They undermine the motto of America, one of its three central values — e pluribus unum, “from many, one.” And this school will be guided by America’s values.

    This includes all after-school clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on any identities. This includes race, language, religion, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in vogue in a society divided by political correctness.

    Your clubs will be based on interests and passions, not blood, ethnic, racial or other physically defined ties. Those clubs just cultivate narcissism — an unhealthy preoccupation with the self — while the purpose of education is to get you to think beyond yourself. So we will have clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak, carpentry and more. If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being interesting in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity, that means that little outside of yourself really interests you.

    Second, I am uninterested in whether English is your native language. My only interest in terms of language is that you leave this school speaking and writing English as fluently as possible. The English language has united America’s citizens for over 200 years, and it will unite us at this school. It is one of the indispensable reasons this country of immigrants has always come to be one country. And if you leave this school without excellent English language skills, I would be remiss in my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully compete in the American job market. We will learn other languages here — it is deplorable that most Americans only speak English — but if you want classes taught in your native language rather than in English, this is not your school.

    Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor, everything in this school will reflect learning’s elevated status. This means, among other things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. Many people in our society dress more formally for Hollywood events than for church or school. These people have their priorities backward. Therefore, there will be a formal dress code at this school.

    Fourth, no obscene language will be tolerated anywhere on this school’s property — whether in class, in the hallways or at athletic events. If you can’t speak without using the f-word, you can’t speak. By obscene language I mean the words banned by the Federal Communications Commission, plus epithets such as “Nigger,” even when used by one black student to address another black, or “bitch,” even when addressed by a girl to a girlfriend. It is my intent that by the time you leave this school, you will be among the few your age to instinctively distinguish between the elevated and the degraded, the holy and the obscene.

    Fifth, we will end all self-esteem programs. In this school, self-esteem will be attained in only one way — the way people attained it until decided otherwise a generation ago — by earning it. One immediate consequence is that there will be one valedictorian, not eight.

    Sixth, and last, I am reorienting the school toward academics and away from politics and propaganda. No more time will devoted to scaring you about smoking and caffeine, or terrifying you about sexual harassment or global warming. No more semesters will be devoted to condom wearing and teaching you to regard sexual relations as only or primarily a health issue. There will be no more attempts to convince you that you are a victim because you are not white, or not male, or not heterosexual or not Christian. We will have failed if any one of you graduates this school and does not consider him or herself inordinately lucky — to be alive and to be an American.

    Now, please stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of our country. As many of you do not know the words, your teachers will hand them out to you.

  103. wbb-

    the remedy to your hypothesis is simpler. Hillary will not run WITH Obama after she resigns.. For the good of the country and with all the momentum currently behind the Clintons, she just might force a PRIMARY between herself and Obama and run AGAINST him. Dealing him a fatal blow before he’s out of the box.

  104. Southern Born, did you know that Shep Smith is a native of Mississippi as is Orca? And being from the neighboring state of MS, I love southerns and I deplore those who belittle us as such. I often tell people that being from AL that I only have one branch on my family tree….but no one else had better say it at least in my presence. If they did I would respond with…you have nEvEr had a knot jerked in your tail by a GRITS white girl, now have you?

  105. D@mned straight, Mrs. Smith, she holds an unbeatable hand imho. Force his and their hand. Be top ticket or no ticket; then watch them shake in their boots, stall and cave in.
    Did you see the Meghan Kelly show this am with another blonde, forget her name, that was about Hillary running for President again?

  106. I don’t think Michelle Obama is up for it either, i still remember her comment, “this is a one time thing” she was adamant, i think both of them are inherently lazy people, another four years, i think not, i think they will say they bow out in 2011 and say they came what they came to do and will not run again in 2012.

    It still comes back to me as to what he would run on in 2012, the Hope and change thing is dead and no-one believes it anymore, thats primarily why i think he may just give it up, re-election is harder than the first time, there is no historic run in 2012, no first black man in the WH, no hope changey thing, just a plain old record and his is not pretty.

    Now Running Hillary in 2012, we get the first woman President.

    Obama has nothing to offer in 2012.

    Yes, with the Obama Camp it’s gonna be all about voting theft. They own the Diebold voting machines. They aren’t expecting a challenge in a Primary.

    No, I didn’t ShortTermer. Maybe a replay on utube?

  108. moononpluto, I am beginning to warm to the idea that Scowley and The Won are having all their fun at the taxpayers expense that they want now, and Scowley will want to go back to Chicago and live in the lap of luxury. My take is she does not take kindly to being told what to do as she is the decider; and four years will be enough for her.

  109. Air Force Two was involved in an accident at Gabreski Airport (FOK) on Long Island this morning.

    Vice President Joe Biden was on board, but was not injured.

    News 12 reports that while Air Force Two was taking off this morning, the jetblast from the plane, a Boeing C-32A, flipped a Piper Cub parked on the airfield, causing damage to the Piper.

    Air Force Two was not damaged. The Piper Cub was empty and no one on the ground was injured.


    I’ll give them to tomorrow before someone blames Hillary for it, trying to take Biden out.

  110. Shorttermer, i get the feeling they do not like being in the WH at all, all they seem to do is want to stay out of it most of the time.

    I really don’t think they like this life one little bit.

  111. MOP, You know they probably drink to much Vodka on Biden’s plane….oops I guess that Nancy’s! Well then maybe they let Biden drive! Seriously, I glad he’s OK and no one is hurt!

  112. the remedy to your hypothesis is simpler. Hillary will not run WITH Obama after she resigns..

    I agree. That is why she should reject the main argument above. It is not a straw man argument however. It is real. But I do not see how she can run with him and not be tarred with the same brush. You do not want to be on the quarterdeck when the ship is sinking. I think she is in a very strong bargaining position at this point. It will be stronger as time goes on. Whenever that is true you never want to accept the first offer. Let them make back to back successive offers. Get them bargaining against themselves. They are the ones who have the most to lose, so let them feel the heat.

  113. To repeat what I said above, the good ship Obama is the wrong ship on the wrong course with the wrong crew. Plus, it is taking on water. Hence, it is not in Hillary’s interest to book passage.

  114. I can see Hillary running for potus if obama steps down in 2012. I can’t see her running in 2016 no matter what her age.

    I am sorry to hear this. My husband was stationed, not only in Alabama, but Virginia, and I gained a new appreciation for an aspect of American history that is often derided. My husband, who grew up in the NYC area, often derides the South, which I can’t understand. However, the South is growing in jobs which is something that the North cannot boast about. In fact, the Northeast has been declining for years. I grew up in upstate New York, on a farm, and the upstate part of New York is DEAD economically. Jobs and prosperity have been promised but never delivered on.

    I will never, repeat, NEVER, if I can help it, move back to the Northeast when my husband retires from the military. There is nothing there for us. No jobs. No hope. Just an overpopulated, polluted, noisy sliver of a coastline that has become blighted by overdevelopment, snobbery, and rudeness.

    Look, I don’t think all Northeasterners feel the way you describe. I do think that the South, while having very pleasant weather and people, needs to have more selection of well-paying jobs for educated people. I wish the schools in Alabama, especially Montgomery, were better (I’m a former teacher). I don’t blame people in the South for not trusting gov’t after Reconstruction. I can understand why people don’t believe in paying property taxes given their negative consequences in the past.

    My husband and I might retire in the South. I just wish illegals weren’t part of the picture like they are in VA. Illegals are destroying opportunity for those who sorely need it in places like SE Virginia.

    I really miss being able to drive to Fort Walton and Destin Beaches in Florida. One of the prettiest parts of the country. I live in Colorado now and it’s so dry and we get such weird weather (hail in the Summer) that living in the South can feel relaxing by comparison. I miss the time when you could leave your doors unlocked and windows open to let in a gentle breeze. We are living in not so gentle times now.

    Do not despair. The South is one of those places that people cannot relate to because they’ve either never lived there or don’t believe in old-time values that make the South a nice place to live. Atlanta is a bit crowded but there are real gems like Huntsville, Alabama that cannot be missed.
