Barack Obama In Tora Bora, Hillary Clinton In Clover

Those mischievous scoundrels at HotAir have tickled our pink funny bone today. Before we state why we are giggling so, let’s examine the difference between the George W. Bush “dead-enders” and the Barack H. Obama “dead-enders”.

The Bush dead-enders agreed with their leader on a great deal of his policy proposals even if they knew he was prone to garbled syntax in his speech and gave the appearance of being non-to-bright in his demeanor. On foreign policy the Bush era dead-enders agreed with much of the neo-con vision even if some prominent voices warned against the adventure in Iraq. The 9/11 attacks further fueled the fires of loyalty. On domestic policy there was more division among the dead-enders but to some considerable degree they supported Bush because his tax cut policy was their core issue. Expansion of health care and the budgetary excesses were excused by them to a large degree because in the end they believed that somehow this would help achieve political victories for the Republican party at the ballot box.

The Obama dead-enders however have no real rationale for continued support of the boob-in-chief. Boiled down to the bone the support of the Obama dead-enders for dear leader comes down to “racism” and “Republicans are worse”. They might celebrate the massive waste of money which was the “stimulus” scam, the “cash for clunkers” debacle, and passage of the health scam, but in none of these cases were the policies viewed as a triumph of Hope versus reality. On Guantanamo, retentions, torture, civil liberties, the Patriot Act, transparency, and “heal the planet” promises Barack Obama has been a total bust for them. The only thing that keeps them going is the abiding necessity to not admit they were wrong. They were stupid when they believed anything Barack Obama said. The Obama dead-enders cannot admit to themselves they were fleeced by a major league flim-flam man. So they yell “racists” and “rotten Republicans” whenever they feel the incense is burning out.

It is on Libya however that the excuse making has reached new lows. These fools could not accept the obvious that if Obama had been in the senate during the Iraq war deliberations he likely would have voted for the authorization of force. The simpletons cradled themselves to sleep thinking that Obama was the “new politics” of openness and that he would never be a “war monger” like that hated figure Hillary Clinton. Now these deceived Hopium addicts make pretzels of themselves trying to support Barack Obama for doing what they were sure he would never do. Reality is a… um… ditch:

“At Townhall, Victor Davis Hanson writes that “In short, Obama has ensured that the exasperated antiwar movement will never be quite the same:”

“By bombing Libya, President Obama accomplished some things once thought absolutely impossible in America:

a) War-mongering liberals. Liberals are now chest-thumping about military “progress” in Libya. Even liberal television and radio cite ingenious reasons why an optional, preemptive American intervention in an oil-producing Arab country, without prior congressional approval or majority public support — and at a time of soaring deficits — is well worth supporting, in a sort of “my president, right or wrong” fashion. Apparently liberal foreign policy is returning to the pre-Vietnam days of the hawkish “best and brightest.”

Ouch. Replace “liberals” with “Hopium Addicts” and the paragraph is right on target.

The HotAir article which so tickles us today is “Gallup: Wartime president gets highest rating in years”:

“This makes complete sense. At the beginning of a military mission, the American people usually get behind a strong, decisive leader, regardless of whether they have full confidence in the mission itself. When an American can bend global efforts to our objectives — and especially if the leader can overcome high-ranking resistance to achieve those ends — it almost always plays well in the first blush of conflict and gives confidence of victory.

Too bad this isn’t Barack Obama, huh

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s favorable rating from Americans is now 66%, up from 61% in July 2010 and her highest rating to date while serving in the Obama administration. The current rating is just one percentage point below her all-time high rating of 67%, from December 1998. …

The latest results are from a March 25-27 Gallup poll conducted while the United States was actively involved in enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya, a policy Clinton reportedly advocated. The same poll finds Clinton rated more positively than other top administration officials. Obama receives a 54% favorable rating, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, 52%, and Vice President Joe Biden, 46%.

The blokes at HotAir have a warning for Hillary Clinton which is fair and prudent but when examined we are not so sure about. HotAir:

“As Gallup points out, this is Hillary’s highest rating since the impeachment scandal, but she’d better enjoy it while she can. She has gotten credit for pushing Obama to take some kind of leadership role in a military action that was going to happen with or without us (along with two other women in the administration, Samantha Power and Susan Rice). If the fallout from bungling the intelligence on the rebels that Clinton pushed Obama into helping gets too heavy to ignore — especially if it turns out that al-Qaeda is heavily invested in it — Hillary will become the sacrificial lamb, and not without justification.”

As we have repeatedly written we believe American action in Libya is the wise course (and our Egyptian policy was a mess). We also have no doubt that Barack Obama and his “blame the staff” history will attempt to make Hillary the “sacrificial lamb” if the entire enterprise blows up into a big mess.

But will the Obama attempts to make Hillary into a slaughtered lamb succeed, if things go badly and Khadaffy escapes the Libyan Tora Bora?

It is almost an undisputed fact now that the time to act in Libya was when Khadaffy was trapped in Tora Bora, er, the Tripoli barracks. The rebels, were on a roll then and (as we suggested at the time) a “well lobbed Reaganesque cruise missile aimed at the Tripoli barracks when the rebels had the upper hand was the way to go. But Obama dithered….” Hillary made a strong case to get Khadaffy at Tora Bora, er, the Tripoli barracks but Barack Obama was not thinking of barracks. Barack Obama had other things on his mind.

Imagine this conversation:

Barack Obama asks Hillary, ‘Hey, likeable enough Hillary, I’ve finally decided to stop dithering and get some missiles thrown at brother Moammar. I’m going to give the nod and while the missiles are in the air I’ll be on the air as well on my way to Rio to what I am sure will be adoring crowds unlike the bitter clinging mobs in the United States. This trip might help me with Latino voters and I might even get free tickets to the Olympics in Rio now that I bungled the possibility of getting Chicago Olympic tickets. What do you think (although you know that I am the president, commander-in-chief, maximum leader, and healer of the planet and no woman other than muscular Michelle tells me what to do)?’

Hillary Clinton: ‘Well, Barack, don’t worry. I’ll answer the phone when it rings at 3:00 a.m. I have been coordinating attempts to save the world for several years now and as exhausting as the job is, I am up to the task.

I know how stressful it is for you to be on the golf course, in a valiant attempt to become proficient at the game, and face defeat as that little white ball continues to outwit your attempts to get it to do what you want. By the way, maybe you should put Sarah Palin’s picture on the ball and you will be able to hit it with greater force, if not distance or precision. If that doesn’t work put one of those fabulous Michelle fashion icon pictures on the little ball. I also understand that you must be exhausted from the parties and the rallies and the Motown celebrations and the many publicity stunts, er events, that you require.

I know it must deplete your resources and stamina when you have to read all those words off the TelePrompTer. I fully understand how Rio humiliated your last ditch attempts, along with the increasingly hefty Oprah and sourpuss Michelle, and that you need to get closure on that damage to your ego by going to Rio and punishing them, er rewarding them with your presence.

If you want to go to Rio at a time that American women and men are in harm’s way, by all means go. You are responsible for your own actions. I’ll stay on the job.’

There is no question that Barack Obama and his thugs will attempt to blame Hillary. They have been waging war, as we have documented, against Hillary Clinton for years now. “Obama enforcer Tom Donilon” and the attacks on Hillary Clinton Czar Denis McDonough will try to blame Hillary Clinton for every Obama boobery.

The Obama thugs will try to smear Hillary Clinton, but there are all those news stories which refute that narrative. Remember these juicy news items:

“Fed up with a president “who can’t make his mind up”… “Obviously, she’s not happy with dealing with a president who can’t decide if today is Tuesday or Wednesday, who can’t make his mind up,” … “… it’s like playing sports with a bunch of amateurs. And she doesn’t have any power. She’s trying to do what she can to keep things from imploding.”

And there is this allegedly humorous remark Obama made at a Journolister meeting:

“I’ve dispatched Hillary to the Middle East to talk about how these countries can transition to new leaders — though, I’ve got to be honest, she’s gotten a little passionate about the subject,” Obama said to laughter from the audience.

“These past few weeks it’s been tough falling asleep with Hillary out there on Pennsylvania Avenue shouting, throwing rocks at the window.”

From his own lips: Obama sleeping while Hillary Clinton is on the job.

* * * * * *

Barack Obama and his thugs will try to tarnish Hillary’s golden glow but it’s going to be tougher a tougher fit than Michelle squeezing into her little daughter’s sweaters. The ‘blame Hillary for Obama boobery’ is a no fly zone.

There’s been another line of attack against Hillary, this time on Syria. Gateway Pundit leads the misguided charge:

“Hillary Clinton: Don’t Mind What I Say, I Don’t Speak For Myself or Administration

On Sunday Hillary Clinton said Syrian tyrant Bashar Assad was a “reformer.” [snip]

Yesterday Hillary Clinton tried to smooth over this ridiculous statement. She told reporters that when she’s interviewed she’s “not speaking either for myself or for the administration.”

In other words… Don’t take her seriously.

Contentions reported:

On Sunday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – when asked about why we’re involving ourselves in Libya but not Syria – said this about Bashar Assad: “Many of the Members of Congress of both parties who have gone to Syria in recent months have said they believe he’s a reformer.” For understandable reasons – more about that in a moment– those comments didn’t fly very well. So it was time for a retake.

Yesterday, when asked about her statement at a press conference, Secretary Clinton said, “Well, first, Jay [Solomon], as you rightly pointed out, I referenced opinions of others. That was not speaking either for myself or for the administration.”

As walk backs go, this one was unusually clumsy and obviously untrue. Mrs. Clinton could simply have said her previous comments were wrong and she was revising them. Instead we get a response that no one believes. Of course she was speaking for herself and for the administration; that’s what secretaries of state (as opposed to, say, MSNBC commentators) do.

But what is truly disquieting is what our secretary of state said in the first place. It raises the question: Was she even remotely familiar with Syria’s record under Assad? Just for starters, had she taken the time to read her own State Department’s most recent terrorism report? If she had, she would have found several references to Syria.”

That quote speaks for itself – Hillary was not expressing her own opinion. Hillary was accurately referencing the “opinion of others”. She knows she is surrounded by boobery. A little history via Wiki for those that think this is a smart line of attack against Hillary:

“Hafez al-Assad had been grooming Bashar’s older brother, Basil al-Assad, to be the future president. Bashar studied ophthalmology at Damascus University 1988 and arrived in London in 1992 to continue his studies. He was recalled in 1994 to join the Syrian army after Basil’s death in an automobile accident. [snip]

The accident made Bashar his father’s new heir apparent. When the elder Assad died in 2000, [snip]

Assad stands about 189 cm (6 ft 2 in). He speaks English fluently and also speaks casual conversational French, having studied at the Franco-Arab al-Hurriyah school in Damascus, before going on to medical school at the University of Damascus Faculty of Medicine. He completed his ophthalmology residency training in Tishreen Military Hospital of Damascus and subsequently went on to receive subspecialty training in ophthalmology at the Western Eye Hospital in London.[5] He could not finish his formal training due to the unexpected death of his brother.

Until he became president, Bashar al-Assad was not greatly involved in politics; his only public role was head of the Syrian Computer Society, which introduced the Internet to Syria in 2001. Al-Assad was confirmed as president by an unopposed referendum in 2000. He was expected to take a more liberal approach than his father. In an interview he stated that he saw democracy in Syria as ‘a tool to a better life’ but then argued that it would take time for democracy to come about and that it could not be rushed.[11] Politically and economically, Syrian life has changed only slightly since 2000. Immediately after he took office a reform movement made cautious advances during the Damascus Spring, which led al-Assad to shut down Mezzeh prison and release hundreds of political prisoners.”

Those very selective excerpts are not meant to portray little Assad as a nice guy. Little Assad is a creep of a man just like his father. What those very selective quotes state however is that when Little Assad replaced Old Assad there was a great deal of HOPE (there’s that durn word again) that he would be a reformer. The gullible believed that a change from father to son, particularly a son who had scientific education and lived in the West, would lead to “reforms”. These Assad apologists are as wrong as the Obama dead-enders.

Hillary Clinton is absolutely right that there are quite a few people who believe Assad is a reformer. Barack Obama is one of those fools. This is what we wrote quoting the well sourced Jim Hoagland:

“From the very beginning Obama tried to marginalize Hillary Clinton, appoint special envoys, force Obama cronies onto the State Department, and essentially run foreign policy. Obama displayed the same talent on foreign policy as in domestic policy – namely, both were driven into the ditch. [snip]

Likewise, Syria is now the dominant force in Lebanon. Obama, contrary to the U.S. Senate, an Obama Dimocratic senate at that, proceeded with a “recess appointment” of an ambassador to Damascus – a post vacant since the 2005 Syrian ordered murder of Lebanese Prime Minister al-Hariri. According to Jim Hoagland and diplomatic sources this recess appointment was an absolute surprise to the State Department.

In now Syrian controlled Lebanaon, Al-Hariri’s 2005 death was supposed to be the spark for a revolution by the Lebanese against their Syrian overloads. Now the Syrians have won, the people of Lebanon defeated. An American ambassador in Syria is a reward for the tyrannical regime.

Instead of Hillary style “preconditions” and concessions from Syria in exchange for the return of the American ambassador, Barack Obama conceded the appointment with nothing to show for it.

Foreign policy has been run from the White House by now reassigned Rahm Emanuel, Jim Messina, David Axelrod, and still active in boobery Mark Lippert (chief of staff National Security council), Hillary nemesis Susan Rice (UN Ambassador), and Denis McDonough (Director National Security Council). It is also Denis McDonough who is the sewage pipe used to attack Hillary Clinton.”

Obama is the one Hillary is talking about. Obama is the boob that believes Assad is a reformer. This is what Hillary Clinton, back in April 2010, stated about Assad:

“Clinton also took on Syria on Thursday night, speaking of “grave dangers of Syria’s transfer of weapons to [Hezbollah],” and warning that such a move by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would “have a profoundly destabilizing effect on the region” and would violate a U.N. Security Council resolution.

U.S. officials this month accused Syria of trying to supply weapons to Hezbollah, a Lebanese political party that the United States has labeled a terrorist organization.

We do not accept such provocative and destabilizing behavior — and nor should the international community,” Clinton said. “President Assad is making decisions that could mean war or peace for the region.”

“There should be no mistake, either in Damascus or anywhere else: The United States is not re-engaging with Syria as a reward or a concession,” Clinton said, referring to the Obama administration’s plan to appoint an ambassador to Syria.”

Get it guys? Here’s Hoagland:

Surprised to see the news the other day that the Obama administration is sending an ambassador back to Syria? So were officials in Hillary Clinton’s State Department. They were still hoping to win more movement from Damascus on Middle East issues when President Obama’s decision was leaked.”

Hillary Clinton has to try to save the world and do what is best for America within the confines of Obama’s massive overreaching boobery. At every point in her attempts to save the world, Hillary Clinton’s greatest obstacle is Barack Obama. Remember when Obama got rid of P.J. Crowley as spokesman at the State Department in order to appoint a henchman? We wrote, “Let’s see how Hillary reacts.”

In between saving the world, Hillary has reacted and gotten rid of an Obama thug at the State Department:

“The second-ranking official in the State Department is leaving Foggy Bottom to return to academia, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced Wednesday.

James Steinberg, the deputy secretary of state, will leave the department soon for an academic post at Syracuse University, Clinton said. Bill Burns, the under secretary for political affairs, will be nominated to take his place.

Steinberg has long been said to be unhappy at the department, and thought to be more an ally of President Barack Obama than of Clinton. In a letter announcing his departure, though, Clinton was gracious.”

Steinberg was forced on Hillary Clinton by Barack Obama from the first. Obama wanted a tool in the State Department to do his boobish bidding. Steinberg was that tool. Now that Crowley has been replaced by an Obama tool, Hillary has dispatched the original Obama tool. That’s the way the lady plays.

What do we think should be done in Libya, Syria, Iran. Easy: maximum punishment with minimum costs.” Employ air power and covert action to destabilize these theocrats and run of the mill dictators who oppress their own people and other countries and encourage terrorism. We don’t believe the United States should arm the “rebels” because we don’t need another mujaheddin blunder. Besides, Egypt is covertly arming the “rebels” already. Under no circumstances should Americans be introduced into a ground war in any of these countries.

What do we think should be done in America? Get rid of the boob!

There’s a blond plucky lady ready to answer the ringing phone.

“Clinton enjoys extraordinary popularity among women, and particularly women 50 and older. She also receives support from a solid majority of independents and 40% of Republicans.

Underscoring that views of Clinton and Obama are not one and the same, Clinton is seen in a favorable light by 45% of those who separately say they disapprove of the job Obama is doing as president. Naturally, she is also viewed favorably by 89% of those who approve of Obama’s job performance.[snip]

With a 66% favorable rating from Americans, Secretary of State Clinton is more popular than the president, more popular than the vice president, and more popular than she, herself, has been for much of her time in the national spotlight since 1993.”

Osama Bin Laden was allowed to escape in Tora Bora. Obama bin Lyin’ has not learned and quite possibly turned a sure removal of Khadaffy into his own Tora Bora.

Hillary Clinton, continues to save the world, and prove to one and all that the Democratic Party made a monumental mistake in 2008.


Big Media Lies About The Barack Obama Birth Certificate And Donald Trump

For years Big Media has pretended not to know the difference between a Birth Certificate and a Certificate of Live Birth. This pretend stupidity has been in service to the protection of Barack Obama.

For years Big Media has betrayed the journalism profession, consumers of news, and the American people by not demanding a source document – instead engaging in duplicity by saying that the source document has already been produced and smearing (Birther!) anyone who demands to see a source document. If it was Richard Nixon, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Sarah Palin, or George W. Bush Big Media would scream “Trust but Verify.” But for Obama the Big Media cry is “Preserve And Protect“.

Recently Donald Trump entered the fray and demanded, in a very high profile manner, to see the Obama Birth Certificate. Donald Trump (not one of our favorites at all) was immediately smeared.

Donald Trump said he would set an example for Barack Obama and produce his very own Donnie Trump birth certificate. Immediately Big Media decepticons mocked and sneered that the Donald had not produced a birth certificate but something else.

When Donald Trump produced a document purported to be a birth certificate Big Media became a fount of information on the difference between official and unofficial documents and between a REAL birth certificate and something less. For Barack Obama it was credibility destroying credulity but for Donald Trump it was microscopic analysis and attacks.

This is one of our very few articles which discuss the Obama/Big Media flim-flam on the birth certificate issue. In our very first article discussing the birth certificate we discussed one of the most deceptive publications and corrupt Journolisters – Politico and Ben Smith. What we wrote in that July 2009 article is as fresh today as it was then:

“Ben Smith at Politico is not a stupid man but he acts stupid in order to protect Obama. Ben Smith is not alone in acting stupid with reporting that can only be described as dishonest. Ben Smith and other Big Media Obama protectors well know, they must know because they are not stupid, that the Birth Certificate Issue is about the thus far unseen Obama Birth Certificate.

Ben Smith and the Obama Big Media protectors are not stupid and they must know that there is a difference between a Certificate of Live Birth and a Birth Certificate. But the Obama Big Media protectors act dumb in order to deceive and protect Obama by pretending they do not understand the difference between a Certificate of Live Birth and a Birth Certificate.

Ben Smith and other Big Media Obama protectors then pretend that Obama is being transparent and open by not producing the document that is at the center of the controversy – the Birth Certificate.”

In the Age of Fake, even the stupidity is fake. Ben Smith, in his coverage of Donald Trump has crossed the line (once again) from fake stupidity to outright lies. Ben Smith knows better but he is lying to his readers and Politico is complicit in Ben Smith’s lies.

This is what Ben Smith wrote about Donald Trump’s demand for the Barack Obama birth certificate (note what Ben Smith writes at the end):

” I asked longtime Donald Trump advisor Roger Stone, who is working on the unofficial “Draft Trump” effort, rather than the attempts at an official campaign, why Trump would embrace discredited theories about Obama’s birth.

Stone emails with five reasons:

1) He believes he is raising a legitimate question. If there is nothing wrong why doesn’t the Prez simply release his birth certificate?

2) Notice Trump makes no allegation— he is merely asking a question.

3) A solid plurality of Republican primary voters AGREE with Trump. In a split field with 5-6 candidates they are a significant group

4) Personally I think it is brilliant. It’s base building. It gives voice to a concern shared by many on the right.

5) The media immediately tries to marginalize any one who raises questions about the lack of proof that Obama was born in the US.

No other potential candidate hasdared to speak up on the issue—-politics abhors a vacuum. Trump’s poll ratings in the Republican primaries will go UP.

As I wrote earlier, an official copy of Obama’s birth certificate — the same thing Trump would have to prove his own birth — has been available and online for more than three years.

Ben Smith knows what he wrote is a lie. There is NO “official copy of Obama’s birth certificate… available and online for more than three years.” Ben Smith knows this is all a lie. Ben Smith knows and understand the difference between a birth certificate and a certificate of live birth. Ben Smith knows but Ben Smith lies.

Ben Smith lies to Politico readers and pretends he does not know the difference between a genuine source document Birth Certificate, the one the “Birthers” are demanding, and the Certificate of Live Birth. Ben Smith knows the distinctions and differences between the source document and others – we know this because this is how Ben Smith attacked Donald Trump and protected Barack Obama:

“Trump peddles 2007 edition of conspiracy theory

There’s really no excuse for this:

They give you a certificate of live birth which anybody can get. Just walk into the hospital. This guy either has a birth certificate or he doesn’t. I didn’t think it was such a big deal, but I will tell you, it is turning out to be a very big deal. People are calling me from all over saying please don’t give up on this issue. If you weren’t born in this country, you cannot be President. You have no doctors that remember, you have no nurses — this is the President of the United States — that remember. Why can’t he produce a birth certificate? I brought it up just routinely, and all of a sudden, a lot of facts are emerging and I’m starting to wonder myself whether he was born in this country?”

As dozens of reporters looked into, and wrote, in 2007, Hawaii (like Trump’s native New York) will give natives a copy of their birth certificates on request. Obama gave it to the press back then. Here’s a picture.

Trump isn’t even up to date on his Birther lunacy, which now revolves around tortured explanations of the totally conclusive birth announcements and demands for the original, hand-written birth certificate, which isn’t what you get from the Department of Health in New York either.

UPDATE: Trump has now released the handwritten original, not the official copy; this doesn’t change the story much, as the Hawaii Department of Health — whose rules have prevented the release of the original — has validated it any number of times.”

Ben Smith lies when he writes that it is the Hawaii Department of Health “whose rules have prevented the release of the original” – no Barack Obama can request and release his birth certificate at any time. Ben Smith knows Barack Obama has fought in court repeatedly to prevent the release of his birth certificate.

Ben Smith linked to the Certificate of Live Birth pictures and nonsense from the fake FactCheck. Both FactCheck and Ben Smith pretend they are stupid and that a Certificate of Live Birth is a Birth Certificate. They are lying to protect Barack Obama. They pretend to be stupid and not understand the difference – when it comes to Barack Obama. But as to Donald Trump the understand the distinctions and smear and slime the “Donald” (again, not a favorite of ours).

Ben Smith knows better. Ben Smith cited the Maggie Haberman article in Politico and even quoted from it. Ben Smith knows better but he is a leading liar Journolister in the propaganda ministry protecting Barack Obama.

This is what Journolister Maggie Haberman wrote, which demonstrates quite a bit of knowledge about birth certificates and their lesser cousins:

“Welcome to Donald Trump’s birth certificate, the sequel.

A day after the presidential tease released what he said was his birth certificatea document that POLITICO found was not actually official — Trump produced the real thing for ABC News. The network’s website showed an image of the actual, New York City-issued certificate, a grainy microfilm production.

Amazing that for Donald Trump Politico sees and seizes on the distinctions between a source document Birth Certificate (see baby Donnie’s birth certificate HERE) and a less comprehensive document. But hey, Donald Trump is a builder in New York who must be microscopically examined and Barack Obama is a Chicago flim-flam man with little known history who must be Journolister protected. More from Haberman:

“Trump released the initial document as part of his his spotlight-seeking effort to push the debunked “birther” argument about President Barack Obama, as he has repeatedly raised questions in recent days about where Obama was born — and gotten plenty of airtime for it.

An aide to the real estate mogul told ABC News that “a ‘birth certificate’ and a ‘certificate of live birth’ are in no way the same thing, even though in some cases they use some of the same words. … One officially confirms and records a newborn child’s identity and details of his or her birth, while the other only confirms that someone reported the birth of a child.”

Haberman lies when she says the Barack Obama Birth Certificate story has been “debunked”. Haberman and Ben Smith, the Politico Protectors, pretend to be stupid in order to deceive their readers and protect Barack Obama. Both of them know better but instead choose to attack Donald Trump instead of joining him and demanding to see the source document – the Birth Certificate.

ABC News’s Michael Falcone joined in the mock “the Donald” festivities.

“Take Two: Donald Trump Releases Official Birth Certificate

ABC News Michael Falcone reports:

Donald Trump learned the hard way this week that if you’re going to call on the president to release his official birth certificate, you’d better do the same.

Trump, who has been putting pressure on Obama lately to make public his long-form birth certificate from Hawaii, decided to set a good example and release his own on Monday. Only problem was, the document that Trump provided to the conservative Website Newsmax wasn’t his actual birth certificate, but rather a “hospital certificate of birth.

On Tuesday, Trump, who is contemplating a presidential run in 2012, sought to correct the oversight, providing a copy of his official birth certificate issued by the New York City Department of Health to ABC News.

Amazing how when it comes to Donald Trump the distinction between a birth certificate and a certificate of live birth is so easy to understand and explain.

Falcone of ABC News posted a picture of the Trump birth certificate as well as an enlarged version. Falcone included in his report the memo from the Trump staffer but it is a longer excerpt which clarifies matters even further (something Politico would rather muddy up and deceive their readers about). Too bad that Falcone did not produce a side by side comparison of Barack Obama’s Certificate of Live Birth and Donald Trump’s source document Birth Certificate. We now have much more information about Donald Trump, New York builder, than about Barack Obama, flim-flam man from Chicago:

“It shows that “Donald John Trump” was born June 14, 1946 in Jamaica Hospital in Queens.It lists his father as Fred C. Trump and his mother as Mary Mac Leod. The date of the report is listed as June 14, 1946.

The image came with an accompanying memo from a member of Trump’s staff.

A ‘birth certificate’ and a ‘certificate of live birth’ are in no way the same thing, even though in some cases they use some of the same words,” wrote Trump staffer Thuy Colayco in a message to ABC News. “One officially confirms and records a newborn child’s identity and details of his or her birth, while the other only confirms that someone reported the birth of a child. Also, a ‘certificate of live birth’ is very easy to get because the standards are much lower, while a ‘birth certificate’ is only gotten through a long and detailed process wherein identity must be proved beyond any doubt. If you had only a certificate of live birth, you would not be able to get a proper passport from the Post Office or a driver’s license from the Department of Motor Vehicles. Therefore, there is very significant difference between a ‘certificate of live birth’ and a ‘birth certificate’ and one should never be confused with the other.” [snip]

This guy either has a birth certificate or he doesn’t,” Trump said in an interview on Fox News on Monday. “I didn’t think this was such a big deal, but I will tell you, it’s turning out to be a very big deal because people now are calling me from all over saying please don’t give up on this issue.

The Obama campaign released a “certification of live birth,” which is a shorter document that carries the same legal weight as the long one, in 2008.”

Falcone is wrong and the Donald Trump staffer is right – a certificate of live birth does NOT carry the same legal weight as the long one [birth certificate].

Republicans voting for president in primaries should be aware that Tim Pawlenty (and HotAir) does not understand this issue, and prefers to vote “present”:

“Already one likely Republican contender, Tim Pawlenty, indicated that Trump’s emphasis on the issue was unwise.

“I, for one, do not believe we should be raising that issue,” the former Minnesota governor said in an interview MSNBC on Tuesday. “I think President Obama was born in the United States.”

Trump discussed his calls for Obama to release his official birth certificate on ABC’s “The View” last week:

Notice the duplicity of the video above. The ladies of the View are pretending they are stupid too. They pretend to not understand the difference between a certificate of live birth and a source document birth certificate. For the ladies on The View, like the Big Media Obama protectors, ignorance is bliss.

There are plenty of issues of great import which must be discussed. But the Birth Certificate issue is important too. Tim Pawlenty does not understand that this issue is a matter of Big Media bias too. If he has already surrendered to Big Media Pawlenty should go home and drink beer and watch hockey. Big Bird will make a better president than Tim Pawlenty:

Big Bird knows something stinks. A while back we noted that Lou Dobbs was smeared for raising the same questions Donald Trump and the fun-faux Big Bird are raising:

Barack Obama promised to be “transparent”. Big Media has forgotten that promise. Bid Media refuses to stop smearing those who want a source document not “trust me” statements from hacks.

Big Media is acting dumb to protect the Big Boob.

* * * * *

Big Media is not only protecting the Big Boob. Smaller boobs are protected as well. By that we mean Bill Maher “…from last night’s Greta lamenting that anyone, let alone a “progressive,” can get away with sexist insults without being called on it :

Big Media will pass on exposing Bill Maher for the vile sexist and misogynist he displays himself to be. The left, bereft of all rationality and decency will laugh with Maher because the targets are women on the right side of the political spectrum. The right wing will laugh when it is women like Hillary Clinton who are the targets of the attacks. The sexism and misogyny will not stop because Big Media is a corrupt institution.

Big Media must be confronted and their faces shoved into their own shi… works in the way dogs used to be toilet trained. Big Media must be forced to stop lying to those who depend on the truth – the American public.

Whether it’s the Barack Obama Birth Certificate or the unreported sexism and misogyny Big Media is a Big Fail. The American people are increasingly fed up with Barack Obama’s boobery (see today’s new flaccid poll) Increasingly the American people are borrowing a line from Donald Trump and saying “You’re fired.” Couldn’t happen to a bigger bunch of boobs.


Fibya – The Obama Speech In-Between Vacations And Golf

The clown prince of boobery is taking a break from vacations and golf tonight. Tonight (7:30) is a publicity stunt night. Call it Fibya.

It’s not going to be a fun night for someone who rather be president of China because presidentin’ the good ol’ USA be a hard job. It’s not an easy job when the Black Panthers are calling you the “N” word and telling lantern jawed Michelle Obama to kick your ass to the curb.

When you’ve lost your very own race-baiting Black Panthers

It is a kindness to say that Barack Obama did not want to talk Libya. Obama has not really consulted with anyone in congress. Ya got a lot of ‘splaining to do Barack:

“So when Obama takes the stage at the National Defense University at Fort McNair on Monday evening, there is a sense of urgency that he make an airtight case for his decision to intervene in Libya — and skeptics and supporters alike will also be looking for an endgame.”

Barack won’t be ‘splaining from the Oval Office:

“An address from the Oval Office has at least three problems for President Obama. Among other things, it implies the nation is at war — and if there is one thing the administration is rather emphatic about, it’s that we are involved in a limited military action in Libya, not a war.

The president also is not great in an Oval address — few are. Tense and alone at the Resolute desk, reading off a teleprompter into a network camera while a few staffers and TV crew stand silently by — it’s an isolating, airless moment that does not always convey confidence.

There is also an unfortunate Saturday Night Live effect, with frankly unavoidable visual references to Fred Armisen. Not a winner for the White House, although obviously of minor concern.

“The Oval Office calls to mind too many other images,” said Stephen Hess, a presidential scholar at the Brookings Institution. “When you are going to war, you do the Oval — if you claim it’s not a war, you don’t.”

Obama tonight heads to National Defense University, a facility in Southwest Washington that provides higher education for the military. It’s a good spot — presidents use it from time to time as a backdrop for military-themed addresses. But it’s also not without potential problems.”

During the 2008 campaign Obama promised he would not sign laws until after they were up for public discussion for days. That promise was never kept. But one would have thought that his happy Hopium gobblers would have been told about war before war.

Tonight’s speech comes very late. Obama was on vacation in Rio. Maybe he’ll “splain tonight:

“But until now, Obama had resisted calls to formally articulate the underlying principles, goals and endgame for his seemingly spur-of-the-moment commitment of U.S. forces to combat operations in the North African country. He agreed to make a nationally-televised speech Monday night at the National Defense University in Washington only under pressure from critics, on the left and right, and only after the U.S. officially handed off command and control responsibility to NATO.

What he has to do in the speech, according to Paul Begala, a longtime adviser to former President Bill Clinton, is clear: provide a “rationale — why we are involved…; a strategy — why burden-sharing is better than going it alone; and a path to success — what is victory? How and when do we disengage?”

What can the few viewers who tune in for tonight’s publicity stunt expect? In one word: Fibya.

Don’t expect much. Expect fibs about Libya and how brilliant he is. Fibya.

On Libya expect Fibya.

From Obama it’s always Fibya.


Race-Baiting Smears, Sexism, Misogyny – Good-Bye Gerry Ferraro And Thanks For Hillary Clinton And Sarah Palin

Gerry Ferraro died yesterday. Gerry Ferraro (and we still remember you Shirley Chisholm) helped blaze a trail while she was alive.

We wanted to write an appropriate tribute to Geraldine Ferraro, one worthy of her accomplishments. But her work is not yet done. Gerry is still trailblazing.

The filth that has taken the once great Democratic Party hostage to their lunacies and depravities did not stop the smear of Gerry Ferraro on the day of her death. The truly vile at DailyKooks wrote this in their “tribute”:

“Certainly, she was not without controversy, during the 1984 election or, more recently, in 2008, when she suggested that Barack Obama’s success in the primaries was due to his skin color. She subsequently resigned her position on Hillary Clinton’s finance committee, but the damage to her reputation among Democrats had been done, even though she later endorsed the Obama-Biden ticket.”

These people are truly disgusting.

To get decent, heartwarming, honest, tributes to Geraldine Ferraro we have to go to Republican/conservative websites. Yup. You read that right. Those we once thought of as friends are truly repulsive. Those who are still our ideological opponents on many issues displayed decency and honesty.

The Republicans/conservatives at Gateway Pundit wrote with honesty;

“Obama Releases Statement on Ferraro… The Same Woman His Team Destroyed During Election

During the 2008 presidential campaign Geraldine Ferraro was viciously attacked by the left for suggesting that Obama was winning only because he was a black male. Barack Obama later suggested that Geraldine Ferraro should be cut loose by the Clinton team after making such “racist” comments about him.”

“The American left hated her for going public with such a controversial statement.

Ferraro later said that the Obama campaign should apologize to her.

They never did.”

That object of hate and loathing (she is no longer a person to the vile Kooks, she is an object of derision based on class and misogyny), Sarah Palin, spoke of Geraldine Ferraro with respect. On the day she was introduced to the nation as a vice presidential candidate Palin spoke with respect of Hillary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro. Palin paid her respects once again yesterday:

“Sarah Palin was on FOX News today to discuss the passing of Geraldine Ferraro.

Sarah Palin remembered Geraldine Ferraro as someone who inspired her. She said they talked about the day America would have a woman as president.

Sarah Palin posted this on her Facebook page today, via Cubachi.””

“My family and I would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of Geraldine Ferraro. When I had the honor of working alongside Geraldine on election night last year, we both discussed the role of women in politics and our excited expectation that someday that final glass ceiling would be shattered by the election of a woman president. She was an amazing woman who dedicated her life to public service as a teacher, prosecutor, Congresswoman, and Vice Presidential candidate. She broke one huge barrier and then went on to break many more. The world will miss her. May she rest in peace and may her example of hard work and dedication to America continue to inspire all women.”

Thank you Sarah Palin. It was so good to know that you did not call Geraldine Ferraro a “racist” like the Kooks did:

Of course, the far left savaged her after these “racist” comments. She will be missed.

At the supposed macho men and “morons” website (their words not ours, they are taking the insult “moron”and adopting it in the same way gay people have taken to use the word “queer”) called Ace of Spades, a very affectionate surprise:

“Geraldine Ferraro Passes at 75

The first woman candidate for Vice President.

This is something that I’ve witnessed in my life, a person hanging on until all of their loved ones are close, just to say goodbye in that way.

Raje said it seemed Ferraro held out until her husband and three children arrived. They were all at her bedside when she passed, she said.

“Gerry actually waited for all of them to come, which I think was incredible,” said Raje, director of the myloma program at the hospital’s cancer center. “They were all able to say their goodbyes to Mom.”

It’s just been my anecdotal experience is all, my mom held on for 30 hours in a coma until we could all be there. I was told by her doctor, and I’ll admit perhaps it was just a kindness, that he thought she did that on purpose.

I thought I mighta still been in trouble or something. But I was cool.

RIP Geraldine.”

The Republican/conservative professor at LegalInsurrection documented the glory and the horror:

And she was not afraid to speak out, and she paid the price:

But she was a class act: Geraldine Ferraro And Sarah Palin Together On TV For First Time! – 11/02/10

Geraldine was a fighter in a world of too many cowards and clowns like… well you know who the guy is we refer to [hint: his initials can be found twice in the word “boob”].

Beth Reinhard of National Journal, the D.C. conventional wisdom bible sums up:

“In her 1985 campaign memoir, Geraldine Ferraro recalls her annoyance during an interview on “Meet the Press’’ when she was asked, “Are you strong enough to push the button?’’

She was asked a variation of that question several times, including during a nationally televised 1984 debate against George H.W. Bush. Each time, Ferraro assured her questioner that yes, she had the strength. [snip]

“By placing a woman on the ticket, the country did more than check a box. More Americans are now open to a woman as commander and chief,” said Donna Brazile, who worked on the 1984 campaign and ran Al Gore’s bid in 2000.”

Donna Brazile is a race-baiter who smeared Geraldine Ferraro in life. With the death of Ferraro, Donna Brazile proves herself a hypocrite and a fool who thinks we will ever forget her treacheries. We won’t.

A little Gerry in the night:

“The question of whether Ferraro was “strong enough’’ seems particularly silly considering her backbone of iron, the meaning of her last name in Italian. She endured her father’s death at age eight. As an assistant district attorney in Queens, she started a special bureau to prosecute sex crimes, child abuse and domestic violence. There were only only 17 women in Congress when she was elected in 1978.

For young women today, coming of age at a time when it is commonplace to turn on the television and see women engaged in national politics, it is impossible to overstate the impact of Ferraro’s achievement. That the surname on the 1984 ballot was her name, not her husband’s name, makes it all the more astonishing.

After she was on the national ticket, the possibility of a woman was always on the table,’’ said Kiki McLean, a senior adviser to Clinton during her 2008 presidential campaign. “Michael Dukakis had to think about it. Bill Clinton had to think about it. George Bush had to think about it. And John McCain did it. Now it’s just part of the conversation.’’

Ferraro started a revolution, but the battles for equal treatment are far from over. Women candidates are judged more harshly about their physical appearances, their parenting skills, and their relationships. Remember all the fuss about whether Clinton cried or not during a campaign stop in New Hampshire in 2008? “How,’’ she had been asked by another woman, “did you get out the door every day?’’

That’s the kind of unanswerable question that can bring mist to the eyes of any woman trying to juggle marriage and motherhood and career and self.

I know what she means to women candidates and women voters,’’ said Mary Beth Cahill, who ran John Kerry’s presidential campaign in 2004. “I don’t think we’re that far away from seeing a woman president.’’

To quote Dr. King, “How long? Not long.”

Thanks for the memories Gerry:

“When I covered the last presidential campaign, my young daughters would frequently hover near the television during what seemed like an endless number of Democratic primary debates. There was Clinton, a burst of color, in a lineup of a half-dozen men. I felt a debt of gratitude for Clinton’s presence, and on Saturday, she expressed her own debt to Ferraro.

“She put the first crack’s in America’s glass ceiling,’’ said Clinton, who in 2008 eloquently described the 18 million ceiling cracks made by the voters who favored her in the Democratic primary.

Generations of women can also thank Shirley Chisholm, Margaret Chase Smith, Pat Schroeder — who did indeed cry — Elizabeth Dole, Carol Moseley Braun, and Sarah Palin.

Ferraro once said, “Every time a woman runs, women win.’’ She was right as rain.”

Thanks Gerry. We’ll keep up the fight.


Does Obama Have Testicles?

This is not about lantern-jawed, muscular, scowling, automotive parts wearing, sleeveless, Michelle Obama. We’re talking about Barack Obama. Does Barack Obama have testicles – or is he smooth formed, like a Disney cartoon fawn?

We don’t ask because we dream of seeing tiny, malformed, pitted, orbs. We have no desire (ugh, quite the contrary) to see or picture in our minds the commander-in-briefs (unlike Judith Warner who while at the New York Times published cravings for Obama sex) all wee-wee’d down.

Obama on top reminds us of the nasty, but likely accurate gossip, about J.M. Barrie. Barrie of course is the author of the story of the lost boys and Peter Pan – “the boy who wouldn’t grow up”. Although Barrie was homosexual the times were sufficiently cruel that he entered into a marriage with actress Mary Ansell. The marriage was unconsummated. The joke was that Barrie was “the boy who wouldn’t go up.”

Watching Barack Obama fumble with the Libya zipper is as anti-climatic as poor Mary Ansell on her wedding night and as frustrating as Barrie must have felt knowing that he could not publicly love or wed his heart’s desire. Watching Hillary Clinton in action these past weeks brings about these bawdy ruminations. Hillary Clinton looks every inch a commander-in-chief while Obama… Could America possibly have a more flaccid leader on top?

Of course, Big Pink declaring Hillary Clinton appears presidential is not exactly breaking news. But the other night even Sean Hannity said the same thing about Hillary Clinton – at least in comparison to the Mess-iah. Perhaps the advice we have been giving is finally taking hold in Republican/conservative precincts and they are finally keeping the focus on Obama and not letting the Hillary “I over E” Hate distract them (likewise our disagreements with Republicans/conservatives should not distract us from getting rid of Obama).

Now look at this picture called “Commanderinchief”:


The picture originated with someone called “Slu” and appeared at the most-definitely-not-a-Hillary-Clinton-fansite, Ace of Spades. This is what DrewM wrote there before Hillary appeared in front of TV cameras to announce the latest developments in the “Kinetic Military Action”:

“President, er, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will brief shortly. It’s really shameless how Obama has hidden from this mess. He’s not addressed the nation as Presidents do when they send troops into battle. He’s spokesman won’t do an on-camera briefing and for the most part the military and not political officials are the face of this.”

Yup, President Who Gives A Crap? Or is it the lost boy looking for Wendy to come and save him or at least open up the door?:

Americans are aware that Obama, unlike his mother, does not know much about doorknobs. Americans increasingly know that Obama lacks the… fortitude required to lead. Reuters:

“Only 17 percent of Americans see President Barack Obama as a strong and decisive military leader, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll taken after the United States and its allies began bombing Libya.

Nearly half of those polled view Obama as a cautious and consultative commander-in-chief and more than a third see him as indecisive in military matters.

Obama was widely criticized in 2009 for his months-long consultations with senior aides and military chiefs on whether to send more troops to Afghanistan. Critics called it dithering, but he said such a big decision required careful deliberation. He eventually dispatched 30,000 more troops.”

Americans vaguely remember how during the Afghanistan dithering Obama’s many months long dithering on a selection of a dog became a point of comparison – which boobery was greater we all wondered.

The boobery, like a Japanese Tsunami, is washing over the American landscape. Even the Obama loving Hollywood bars and drugstores filled with comedians are drowning in the reality that there is a boob in charge. Jimmy Fallon made the case very well to a fawn-crotch licking Brian Williams of NBC:

The comedian made some very lucid and serious observations. The NBC News propagandist made defenses of the indefensible along with jokes about ‘tude.

Fallon noted that Obama was playing sports and that it was Hillary Clinton that was “stepping up.” Brian Williams made the irrelevant observation that Obama has phones on Air Force One and can communicate with the world. It does not occur to Brian Williams that Obama should have been at the White House when he sent women and men into harm’s way. Why didn’t Obama use those very phones to electronically visit with Brazil, Chile, and El Salvador and stay home to show what his priorities are? Sadly, Obama did show what his priorities are – speeches and crowds and publicity stunts and Who Gives A Crap? about war and peace, life and death.

Dumb White People like slimy Andrew Sullivan hated Hillary Clinton and loved Obama’s “face”. Remember? It was the gay version of Judith Warner pining for an après-midi with a fawn. Sullivan is not so out of love with Barack Obama that he cannot squirt his full hate on Hillary Clinton:

“Moreover, the fact that this is clearly the Clintons’ war – egged on by Bill, pushed through by Hillary – could exacerbate tensions between the two primary rivals. After all, why did Democrats vote for Obama over Clinton? In part because they specifically wanted less war, not more; and Clinton has never seen a war she didn’t support. Her consistency from Iraq to Libya places her closer to McCain than Obama. Things are at a very early stage as the bombing begins, and these are provisional worries. But unless something miraculous happens quickly, I see this as a lose-lose proposition for the president.

And the initial optics are terrible. A president solemnly sends America’s troops into action and then spirits off to Brazil to talk about jobs. How often does a president announce a war at 2 pm so he can catch a flight out of the country? And as public doubts and fears multiply, the president will be in a foreign country thousands of miles away. This is recklessness on a Bush-Cheney level.”

We’ve made it clear that we agree with Hillary Clinton (and we love that ovarian take charge ‘tude Brian) and the need for intervention in Libya. We do not support the intervention for doe-eyed “humanitarian” reasons. We believe it is in America’s interest to do so. Just as we explained during the Egypt crisis, American interests must be the determining factor in what America does.

In Egypt our concern was that as corrupt and bad as Mubarak was he still was an ally (a very horrible ally especially when it the topic was women – check out the “virginity checks”). We feared the Iron Veil and urged caution. Today the New York Times confirms what we feared about the Iron Veil and the Muslim Brotherhood gaining strength in Egypt.

In Libya we believe in maximum punishment with minimum costs because Quadaffy was not an ally and the situation will at worse go from bad to bad (in Egypt it could have gone from bad to worse). Our worldview holds for Syria and Iran as well – maximum punishment/minimum costs.

In our view intervention in Libya is a good idea as long as it is executed well and in full compliance with the law. Barack Obama has utterly failed on both counts. As we previously wrote Impeach away. Dissent is Patriotic and NOT RACIST. As we have frequently written “Elect a boob, expect boobery.

As bad as the Andrew Sullivan festival of Clinton Hate was, the premier PINO magazine was even worse. The Nation celebrated sexism and misogyny with “Obama’s Women Pushed War Against Libya”:

“So three or four of Obama’s advisers, all women, wanted war against Libya.

We’d like to think that women in power would somehow be less pro-war, but in the Obama administration at least it appears that the bellicosity is worst among Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Samantha Power. All three are liberal interventionists, and all three seem to believe that when the United States exercises military force it has some profound, moral, life-saving character to it. Far from it. Unless President Obama’s better instincts manage to reign in his warrior women—and happily, there’s a chance of that—the United States could find itself engaged in open war in Libya, and soon. The troika pushed Obama into accepting the demands of neoconservatives, such as Joe Lieberman, John McCain and The Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol, along with various other liberal interventionists outside the administration, such as John Kerry. The rode roughshod over the realists in the administration. [snip]

Similarly, the Washington Post reports that yet another administration woman, Gayle Smith, joined Ben Rhodes and the troika of other women to push for war:

Bros before hos, Uncle Dookie, bros before hos. It’s one of the reasons we on occasion cheer on Sarah Palin. When Bill Maher called her a “twat” Sarah Palin responded and explained why she responds to Big Media attacks on her:

“When it comes to responding to the media, the standard warning is: Don’t pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel because calling out the media and holding them accountable is a risky endeavor. Too often the first instinct is to ignore blatant media bias, crudeness, and outright lies, and just hope the media instigator will grow up and provide fairer coverage if you bite your tongue and not challenge the false reporting of an openly hostile press. But I’ve never bought into that. That’s waving the white flag. I just can’t do it because I have too much respect for the importance of a free press as a cornerstone of our democracy, and I have great respect for the men and women in uniform who sacrifice so much to defend that First Amendment right. Media, with freedom comes responsibility.”

Hate Palin’s policies all you want, but she hits back and we like that. She’s got ovaries.

Obama does not have the Ovaries needed for the job. Obama does not know what he is doing. Obama cannot explain what he is doing because the collective weight of lies would break the strongest of TelePrompTers. He does not know how to wage war because he lacks the ovaries to do so. Obama’s singular domestic scam has failed and even his most dead-ender supporters know it.

Obama not only does not know what he is doing, he does not have the testicular or ovarian fortitude to do what needs to be done in the way that it must be done. Testicles? No, he has none. Perhaps the testicles are hidden away along with the birth certificate that Donald Trump (and many Americans) wants to see.

Hillary Clinton has ovarian fortitude. Sarah Palin has ovarian fortitude. Know who else had ovarian fortitude? Guess. Hint, she just died at the age of 79. She had ovarian fortitude we did not know about. Did you know that Elizabeth Taylor offered to be a hostage in exchange for the Jewish hostages held by terrorists at Entebbe? Ovaries, baby.

Obama does not have the ovaries necessary to be president. Obama does not have the testicles necessary to be president. What Obama has is a lot of gall in ever running for president.


It Finally Happens: Obama Finds A Daddy While AWOL South American Way

There was a time when an American president at least pretended to care when he sent American women and American men in harm’s way. Not so in this new golden age of celestial choirs.

In this our Mess-iah utopia, an American plane crashes in a hostile land, crew lives in danger, but President Who Gives A Crap? is too busy playing the “grand tourist” (AP’s words) and looking out at “brilliant beaches” to, well, give a crap.

The “brilliant beaches” beckoned and Obama decided to grace them with his presence. Whatever one thinks of the Libya situation, whichever side one is on (intervention or no intervention) it would have been nice to have a president who gave enough of a crap to explain his position and goals in person to the nation and to American congressional representatives (“no king’s army” they wail). Some of the little darlings are sooo disappointed that they are even talking impeachment. Impeachment? Oh my! How little things have changed. Don’t worry former friends, we won’t stand in your way – impeach away!

The Waldo once sold as the antiwarmonger has now become a warmonger on the very day that eight years ago George W. Bush attacked Iraq, or was it Afghanistan? We weep to witness the disappointment of the Hopium addicts of 2008 as they now realize that indeed Bill Clinton was right when he warned them that the Obama narrative on Iraq was a “fairy tale.” But Hell, that’s blood under the bridge.

Again, whatever one thinks of the Libya situation (yes, that’s a euphemism) we are all agreed that Obama should take daddy-ship over the war baby and not abandon it the way he was abandoned by his sperm donor dad and dipsy-doodle mom. Barack Obama should be at home explaining what he wants his baby to grow up to be. Today we heard that the baby goal is “installing a democratic system”. It would be nice, if antique, if Obama were in D.C. explaining what he is doing, if he knows what he is doing:

“Barack Obama has launched an American military operation in Libya, but has had trouble deciding on exactly why. Several weeks ago, Obama called for Moammar Gaddafi’s ouster. When he launched military operations against Gaddafi’s regime, however, Obama insisted that he would only act within the UN mandate of protecting civilians. Yesterday, Obama tried to claim both missions simultaneously by saying that our military wouldn’t try to push Gaddafi out, but that we’d still push him out some other way. What that was, Obama didn’t really know.

According to a transcript of a call between Obama and Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, we’re back to “regime change” — and a familiar goal: [snip]

In their defense, they seem to be more confused than anyone at the moment about what Obama really wants. We can’t ask Obama, since he’s touring South America while everyone else puzzles over his intentions for the military intervention in Libya. Similarly, Robert Gates and Hillary Clinton are both out of the country as well, leaving Joe Biden running the show … presumably.”

We think the other day Hillary Clinton provided a pretty good explanation of why and what should be done in Libya. But a lot of former and recovering Hopium addicts would still like Obama to say something coherent, something to restore their shattered little hearts. Instead of a lightbringer explanation we are promised a “political steering committee” or something to handle Libya. We’re too kind this Spring day to mention what happens when you put a committee in charge of things.

Better come back to bitter and clinging America Barack… that quagmire word is starting to be heard and you better do, not just say, something – anything

Listen Waldo, we think it was a good idea to intervene in Libya for many reasons but one of them being that the world is changing and you either help mold the change or the change will mold you. You don’t know anything about how to bring about real change for the better and how much work that entails. You should have acted much earlier as we had advised, but don’t worry you have not disappointed us. We know not to expect too much from a boob. We know you don’t know what you are doing. We know that the only thing to expect from a boob is boobery and more boobery. But don’t you think you should explain the obvious contradiction between what you said when you were running for office and what you are saying, or mumbling about now?

You better get back Waldo and take care of the baby you daddied. Or maybe you should just resign.

But, we’re a sentimental lot. We’re going to restrain ourselves and not continue the discussion of Hillary Clinton and Libya today (that will likely be our next article). We’ll wait until a warmer spring day (hey, maybe tomorrow) to denounce Rush Limbaugh (kidding!) for calling Obama a “sissy”, or rather, “a leader of the [sissy] club.” We’re not going to tackle the Sarah Palin policy trip (privately paid, not taxpayer paid) to India and Israel (we might throw that in our next article as well).

What we want to celebrate on this Spring day is Obama finding a daddy at long last. Obama, the “boy raised by wolves” as Michelle Obama describes him, has been looking for a man in his life for a very long time. We’ve long tracked the Anatomy Of A Flim-Flam Man and how his sperm donor father saw him once and ran away. What we have seen is:

“…Obama’s history is more akin to a rejected and dislocated youth who turned to back-slapping and flim-flam confidence games to fill the hole in his life….”

After his sperm donor dad dumped him, Obama’s doorknob mother (“everyone gets a turn”) with a fetish for third world men hooked up with Lolo Soetoro Mangunharjo. It didn’t take long for Lolo to dump the boy. First Obama was handed over to a nanny (a gay transvestite nanny at that – not that there’s anything wrong with that). Then Obama was shipped to Hawaii to live with the Grandma that Obama, when desperate and for political profit, called a “racist”.

When in Hawaii ten year old Obama was provided by the grandparents with a black family friend. The friend, Frank Marshall Davis, was probably a member of the Communist Party and wrote an autobiographical novel (“Sex Rebel“) that suggests Davis was a pedophile. Davis was a father type for Obama who sought him out for advice. Davis advised Obama regarding college: “You’re not going to college to get educated. You’re going there to get trained.”

The warped boy became a warped man. Obama continued to search for the elusive daddy. One big daddy opportunity came from the pulpit – Jeremiah Wright. Obama fixed himself to Jeremiah Wright for more than 20 years. Obama’s second book of fictions is titled after a Wright sermon. Wright presided at the Obama wedding,”baptized his two daughters and dedicated his house”. Obama had no problem with Wright saying “God Damn America” but Obama did have a problem when Jeremiah Wright started to tell the truth about Obama. Obama lost another daddy.

Now Jeremiah Wright has something else to say about Barack Obama, something many have understood for a long time:

“WRIGHT: We determine that Israel can have nuclear weapons like we do, but Iran can’t have what we have and what Israel has. Let me tell you something — the commander-in-chief Barack Hussein Obama is not marching in the same parade, much less to the same beat, as the “drum major for peace” Martin Luther King. So no, baby. The see-lection — hear that word carefully — because our president was see-lected before you elected him. The selection and election of one black man does not change life on the ground for the millions of [inaudible] people who are still neglected, and kept out of every conversation about peace. No baby we’re not there yet.”

Selected, not elected. We hear you Rev’. Now go back to your pal Gaddaffy and sing a chorus of “God Damn America” to the back-beat of Tomahawk missiles.

Selected, not elected – that sounds like Gaddaffy too. The unelected Libyan leader is pals with his one-time guests Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan. Louis Farrakhan does not know it but his neighbor near that Rezko house might have had a hankering to call Farrakhan “daddy”. But now that potential Muslim/Moslem daddy is taking a switch to Obama’s butt:

“FARRAKHAN: “I warn my brother do you let these wicked demons move you in a direction that will absolutely ruin your future with your people in Africa and throughout the world…Why don’t you organize a group of respected Americans and ask for a meeting with Qaddafi, you can’t order him to step down and get out, who the hell do you think you are?”

Obama will have to settle for “brother” not “daddy” from Farrakhan.

Dumped by every man who wears pants, Barack Obama has found a daddy in robes:

“Colonel Qaddafi addressed President Obama as “our son,” in a letter that combined pleas with a jarring familiarity. “I have said to you before that even if Libya and the United States enter into war, God forbid, you will always remain my son and I have all the love for you as a son, and I do not want your image to change with me,” he wrote. “We are confronting Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, nothing more. What would you do if you found them controlling American cities with the power of weapons? Tell me how would you behave so that I could follow your example?

It should bring tears to every eye. Such love!

Barack Obama has found a daddy. Now he should come to America (or stay permanently away) and grab hold of the baby waiting for him to embrace. The baby is Libya and has an ugly wart on its face called Moammar.

It’s an ugly baby, but it is all yours daddy Barack.

On second thought maybe you should ignore us and stay South American away.


Hillary Clinton Saves The World; Barack Obama Goes To Rio

It’s vicious vengeance. It’s horrific punishment. It’s cruel cruising. We talk of course of Barack Obama’s latest vacation.

How do we know Obama is about to embark on yet another vacation? An Obama vacation is preceded by a series of publicity stunts calculated to feign involvement. Yesterday and today the schedule has shifted from appearances on golf courses to several appearances to make statements on something or other. But be not deceived, Obama is only dreaming of loving crowds and the beaches of Rio.

Think of it as Obama’s revenge.

Back when we played that video with regularity Barack Obama had just made a fool of himself by traveling to Copenhagen in a forlorn effort to get the Olympic games to Chicago in 2012.

Obama’s spectacular boobery failed to get the Olympic games. Rio won. On that October 2009 we questioned the priorities, common sense and judgment of Barack Obama. It was not a wise use of time to fly away from domestic unemployment and other troubles in order to bask in Nordic adulation. The results were that Obama thought there was going to be adulation and a great Olympic victory but all he came back with was his scowling wife, a ravenous Oprah, and a face smarting from the many slaps the Olympic Committee awarded to him – smack dab in the kisser.

Now Obama cruelly punishes Brazil by scheduling a vacation to that lovely country:

“The Obama family will also take in the sights in Rio. A trip to Corcovado mountain, where the Christ the Redeemer statue stands (France gave us Lady Liberty, gave Brazil Jesus) is supposedly on the itinerary. What trip to Rio would be complete without it? If they do make it to the top of the mountain, they will do so with an entourage of secret service and Brazil’s Elite Squad, known as BOPE.”

Bereft of adoring crowds at home (a new poll has 50% of registered voters prepared to vote against Obama and only 40% in support) Obama is traveling in search of a publicity stunt to kick off a still expected reelection attempt. Obama will speak at Cinelandia Square, in a cinematic moment, for cinematic effect – namely a campaign video to try to convince former Hopium addicts to again take up the needle and abandon the disastrous reality of the past three years.

[Oops, the outside Cinelandia speech has been canceled. The unions in Brazil think Obama is a creep and were prepared to protest. The speech will now be in a theater- it should be a circus tent.]

It’s not as if there is anything going on in America or the world that requires attention and demands action. Obama is taking his cue from Liza Minelli’s now dead ex.

While Obama is immobilized by his mirror, Hillary Clinton is on the job.

In the past few days there has been a great deal of chitty chatter about Hillary Clinton and her future plans and motivations. We’ve mostly ignored these stories because we have discussed them months before they occurred. Our crystal ball is to be relied on in these matters.

For those scratching heads about all the Grandma Hillary stories we suggest you acquaint yourself with “Hillary Clinton At Colombey-les-Deux-Églises, Part I.” That article written last year explains the developments of the past few days.

As to Libya and the real war Hillary is waging, we have written about that as well. Here’s what we wrote on March 11 on Libya and the war Obama is waging on Hillary and Bill Clinton:

“On Libya Obama pretended to show concern and wound up voting “present”. After today it is clear that Hillary Clinton is uncomfortable, at the very least, with what is going on. We’ve noticed that lately when Hillary speaks about Libya she either mentions the “Obama administration” as doing or saying something and in some instances Hillary states bluntly that it is Obama that is determining the inaction.

A real president, Bill Cllinton, today came out in favor of a no-fly zone. Hillary couldn’t say it. Bill did. It is a Bill and Hillary no fly zone directed at Obama. Brilliant.”

We are not going to be distracted by silly stories from silly people. We’ve explained all this before. For the uninitiated, read what we have written about the Obama war on Hillary Clinton (read “Hillary’s War – Against Obama Treachery And Boobery“. Check out the many links to the many stories we have published on these events, sometimes even before they occurred.)

Late yesterday, DrudgeReport blared a headline about “Hillary’s War” in an attempt to somehow discredit Hillary as a warmonger or something. The headline backfired as most sensible people heaved a sigh of relief that Hillary is on the job and Barack Obama is being exposed as the boob and waste of air that he is. Today the headline at Drudge has completely disappeared and no evidence is to be found at that site of the failed narrative against Hillary.

Briefly, this is the story Drudge linked to which confirms what we wrote a week ago:

“Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s revelation that she won’t be staying on if there is a second Obama term may have been news to those who don’t know her, but did not surprise her friends, who say she’s spending an increasing amount of time considering her post-government options even as challenges mount at Foggy Bottom.

Clinton has made similar “I’m not here forever” comments before – but it was the timing of her remarks to CNN on Wednesday that raised eyebrows, coming at a critical moment in her fierce internal battle to push President Barack Obama to join the fight to liberate Libya from Muammar Qadhafi.

Clinton’s position was vindicated early Thursday evening when the United Nations Security Council – at the urging of the United States – approved a resolution authorizing “all necessary measures” to protect Libyan civilians, including a no-fly zone. [snip]

Clinton’s persistence in the anti-Qadhafi cause has been such a constant in the White House in recent days that Obama, according to reports, joked about Clinton lobbing rocks through his window during his remarks at Saturday night’s Gridiron dinner.

“Stay tuned,” said one Clinton friend when asked if the secretary would ultimately prevail.”

Notice that only now does Politico bother to discuss the Obama jokes at the Big Media circle jerk called the Gridiron. Only now does a Big Media outlet discuss “Clinton’s persistence” and hard work to get the boob to move. [How does P.J. Crowley fit into all this? Try this: “JanH, Crowley was brought to the State Department by Hillary to block appointment of a shill Obama wanted to appoint and thereby exercise more control over the State Department. Hillary won that battle. Now Obama will have his guy as the spokesman for the State Department. It’s more of Obama’s war on Hillary. Let’s see how Hillary reacts.” That was written on March 13. Now we have seen that Hillary has had bigger fish to fry and how Hillary reacted – successfully so.]

Back to the too late news published at Politico:

“But they say her Sherman-esque statement reflects a growing sense of crisis fatigue that friends can read in her face, hear in her voice and recognize in her wistful talk about the future.

Moreover, her chat with Blitzer took place during an especially draining week that saw her spokesman, P.J. Crowley, forced out for publicly criticizing the Pentagon over its treatment of WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning and during week-long trip to Europe and North Africa, where her triumphant visit to Cairo’s Tahrir Square was tarnished somewhat, by a snub at the hands of some pro-democracy leaders.

She’s tired – she still likes what she’s doing – but she’s tired,” said one longtime Clinton friend, who noted that Clinton is still regarded as a relative outsider in Obama’s tight-knit inner circle.

In private, Clinton often tells friends she’s looking forward to a new, lower-stress life, which might include writing another autobiography – this one covering her epic 2008 primary campaign loss to Obama and tumultuous tenure as the nation’s top diplomat – teaching, and possibly starting her own foundation which might be focused on promoting international women’s rights.”

If you believe any of this tired Grandma crap coming from Politico and repeated by Big Blog Boys and their affiliate Hausfrauen then you are two steps away from Hopium addiction. Our remedy is to reread our “Columbey” article and come back to reality.

Only now does Politico report what has been obvious (anyone wonder why Hillary all of a sudden is so close to Sarkozy of France who has been the biggest advocate for a no-fly zone?) to anyone with eyes and ears and a functioning brain:

“The biggest strain on Clinton has been her effort, not embraced by everyone in the administration, to stave off the kind of genocide in Libya that her husband permitted to occur in Rwanda in the 1990s.

Clinton, according to sources, has been pressing Obama to take bolder action in the Middle East for weeks, especially in Libya where she has privately implored the president and his top aides to impose a no-fly-zone to aid anti-Qadhafi rebels before it’s too late.

But she’s reportedly faced opposition from National Security Adviser Tom Donilon and Defense Secretary Robert Gates who have argued for a far more cautious approach, warning against the cost, logistical complications and political blow-back of further U.S. military involvement in such a volatile part of the world.

Clinton has not publicly pressured Obama. But her husband has.

“I wouldn’t do it if they hadn’t asked, but if the (insurgent) leaders are on television pleading…I think that we should do it,” Bill Clinton told the Women in the World conference in New York a week ago.

Qadhafi has internationalized the conflict himself by hiring people from other countries who do not give a rip about the Libyans,” he said. “So that’s why (the insurgents) said, ‘Just give us the chance to have a fair fight,’ and I, for whatever it’s worth, think that’s what we should do.”

Clinton, speaking in Tunis on Thursday, pressed even harder for action against Qadhafi, warning that the dictator should be taken at his word when he promised to show “no mercy” on his enemies in Benghazi.

“A no-fly zone requires certain actions taken to protect the planes and the pilots, including bombing targets like the Libyan defense systems,” she said in Tunis, her last stop on a trip that also took her to Cairo and Paris.

The United States, she added, would support U.N. actions that gain a “broad base of participation, including from Arab nations.”

Military action might be needed, she said, but ground intervention is not being considered.

Qadhafi must go,” Clinton said, calling him “a ruthless dictator that has no conscience and will destroy anyone or anything in his way.” If he does not go, she added, “he will just make trouble – that is just his nature, there are some creatures that are like that.”

Yup, “there are some creatures that are like that” hint, hint. Read the too late article from Politico and then read what we wrote a week ago about Bill Clinton’s remarks. Also reread what we wrote about dear ol’ Tom Donilon (and the Hillary Haters in the White House such as Denis McDonough, Benjamin Rhodes and Samantha Power) on St. Valentine’s Day:Hillary Clinton then went to the Munich Security Conference without Obama enforcer Thomas Donilon.

Politico along with Hausfrauen and Big Blog Boys love to speculate about Hillary becoming a Grandma – something Hillary has no control over. They view Hillary as “tired” or wistful, or ready to go to the glue factory after being in thoroughbred races all her life. As if. The ones who are tired and should be sent to the glue factory are those that indulge in such dildo fantasies.

The Left Talkers who endorsed Obama because he was a “media darling” should be sent to the glue factory. They are the ones who are complicit in the Third Bush Term. Any Hausfrau who buys into the Hillary glue factory nonsense already has three hooves in the Elmer’s.

What motivates Hillary? As much as she wants to leave she knows she has to save the world. The Obama boobery is killing:

“Fed up with a president “who can’t make his mind up” as Libyan rebels are on the brink of defeat, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is looking to the exits.

At the tail end of her mission to bolster the Libyan opposition, which has suffered days of losses to Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s forces, Clinton announced that she’s done with Obama after 2012 — even if he wins again.

“Obviously, she’s not happy with dealing with a president who can’t decide if today is Tuesday or Wednesday, who can’t make his mind up,” a Clinton insider told The Daily.”

Hillary is tired – tired of the boobery. Who isn’t exhausted with the world situation and the Urkel in the Oval office? There is physical exhaustion that is easily remedied with a good night’s sleep. The exhaustion of watching boobery piled on boobery has only one solution – get rid of the boob:

“… it’s like playing sports with a bunch of amateurs. And she doesn’t have any power. She’s trying to do what she can to keep things from imploding.

Didn’t we write that months/years ago? The boobery is too much:

“Clinton is said to be especially peeved with the president’s waffling over how to encourage the kinds of Arab uprisings that have recently toppled regimes in Egypt and Tunisia, and in particular his refusal to back a no-fly zone over Libya.

In the past week, former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton’s former top adviser Anne-Marie Slaughter lashed out at Obama for the same reason.

The tension has even spilled over into her dealings with European diplomats, with whom she met early this week.

When French president Nicolas Sarkozy urged her to press the White House to take more aggressive action in Libya, Clinton repeatedly replied only, “There are difficulties,” according to Foreign Policy magazine.

“Frankly we are just completely puzzled,” one of the diplomats told Foreign Policy magazine. “We are wondering if this is a priority for the United States.”

Or as the insider described Obama’s foreign policy shop: “It’s amateur night.”

Understand, the “difficulties” are Obama and the team at the White House assigned to attack Hillary. Read above and get the names of the “amateur night” foreign policy shop. Nicolas Sarkozy knows Obama is a boob – yes, we wrote about that too in April of 2009. Sarkozy has long seen the dangers to the world of Obama weakness.

Hillary Clinton understands the dangers. And she is one sharp lady: “Last week, excommunicated members of Libya’s embassy to the United States set up shop in an office inside the State Department.” Obama is oblivious of the danger and does not understand passion or the fierce urgency of now:

“Obama himself made light of her strong feelings for supporting the opposition in a speech last week at the Gridiron Club Dinner, an annual gathering that traditionally features a stand-up comedy act by the president.

I’ve dispatched Hillary to the Middle East to talk about how these countries can transition to new leaders — though, I’ve got to be honest, she’s gotten a little passionate about the subject,” Obama said to laughter from the audience.

“These past few weeks it’s been tough falling asleep with Hillary out there on Pennsylvania Avenue shouting, throwing rocks at the window.”

Dispatch yourself, creep.

Obama does not care about rocks banging at the windows or the phone ringing at 3:00 a.m. Hillary knows weakness invites adventurers and danger. Hillary knows strength saves lives and already her efforts are saving lives as Gahdaffy has begun to understand not to mess with Hillary.

Obama’s dithering has made success in Libya much more difficult. We thought from the first that a well lobbed Reaganesque cruise missile aimed at the Tripoli barracks when the rebels had the upper hand was the way to go. But Obama dithered and now a much more perilous no-fly zone – led by the French – is the policy. American interests in Libya are to get rid of a menace and try to assist the forces that undermine that menace and promote other American interests.

Some of us have warned about the dangers of Obama weakness. Barack Obama is singularly weak at a moment that requires strength. Others now recognize it’s as bad as we have been saying it is:

INEFFECTUAL, invisible, unable to honour pledges and now blamed for letting Gaddafi off the hook. Why Obama’s gone from ‘Yes we can’ to ‘Er, maybe we shouldn’t’... [snip]

The world feels like a dangerous place when leaders are seen to lack certitude but the only thing President Obama seems decisive about is his indecision. What should the US do about Libya? What should the US do about the Middle East in general? What about the country’s crippling debts? What is the US going to do about Afghanistan, about Iran?

What is President Obama doing about anything? The most alarming answer – your guess is as good as mine – is also, frankly, the most accurate one. What the President is not doing is being clear, resolute and pro-active, which is surely a big part of his job description. [snip]

Yet Obama seems content to sit this one out. He has barely engaged in the debate. Such ostrich-like behaviour is not untypical of the 49-year-old President who burst through America’s colour barrier to become the first African-American to occupy the White House. [snip]

All of which means that it is starting to look as if Obama and the Democratic Party have but one aim in mind for the rest of this presidential term: to get elected for a second. That means not doing anything that might upset any number of special interest or niche groups, which in effect means not doing very much at all.”

The bags are packed and the pre-vacation publicity stunts, including a statement on Libya, are produced to convey the impression of engagement. The manufactured impression is not the reality however.

Obama is off to Rio. It’s up to Hillary to save the world.


Sukiyaki At Winters End

Less than 20 years after hatred and war between the governments, if not the peoples, of Japan and the United States the song “Sukiyaki“, in 100% Japanese, climbed to the top spot on the American pop charts.

Things change. Sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse, but things change. Enemies sometimes become friends. Friends sometimes become enemies. Things change.

Americans, who sometimes, hate/fear/love/admire the Japanese people are now horrified about how the moving earth, volcanic winds, nuclear fire, and Tsunami waters have attacked the Japanese isles and its people. We look at Japan and we are peering into a mirror. It’s about us, but not in a selfish way. We see how the majestic forces of earth, wind, fire, and water can humble the most advanced of technological societies. We see that “CHANGE” can indeed be change for the worse.

That lesson about “change” is not one we needed to learn. In 2007 we asked “change to what?” Is it change for the better, or change for the worse? In 2008 America went from bad to worse:

“The Middle East is afire with rebellion, Japan is imploding from an earthquake, and the battle of the budget is on in the United States, but none of this seems to be deterring President Obama from a heavy schedule of childish distractions.

The newly installed tandem of White House Chief of Staff William Daley and Senior Adviser David Plouffe were supposed to impart a new sense of discipline and purpose to the White House. Instead, they are permitting him to showcase himself as a poorly focused leader who has his priorities backward.

This morning, as Japan’s nuclear crisis enters a potentially catastrophic phase, we are told that Obama is videotaping his NCAA tournament picks and that we’ll be able to tune into ESPN Wednesday to find out who he likes.

Saturday, he made his 61st outing to the golf course as president, and got back to the White House with just enough time for a quick shower before heading out to party with Washington’s elite journalists at the annual Gridiron Dinner.”

After a campaign spewing misogyny and stirring up sexism, Obama on Saturday tried to bamboozle with an oddly timed “Women’s History Month” dump of words. On Friday, it was a publicity stunt with the Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks. Americans know a lot is wrong:

Confidence in the U.S. system of government has dropped to a new low in more than 35 years, with public attitudes burdened by continued economic discontent, soaring gasoline prices, record opposition to the war in Afghanistan — and a letdown in hopes for political progress after a bout of bipartisanship last fall.

Only 26 percent of Americans in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say they’re optimistic about “our system of government and how well it works,” down 7 points since October to the fewest in surveys dating to 1974. Almost as many, 23 percent, are pessimistic, the closest these measures ever have come. The rest, a record high, are “uncertain” about the system.”

False hope, like a fast car without brakes, eventually leads to kissing the brick wall of reality.

A Rasmussen poll reports that it is all over for Obama’s health scam as Americans say “no”:

“Support for repeal of the national health care law has reached its highest level since May of last year. The number of voters who believe the plan will increase the cost of care has tied its highest level since the law’s passage last March.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 62% favor repeal of the health care law, including 51% who Strongly Favor it. Only 33% of voters oppose repeal, with 24% who are Strongly Opposed. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Support for repeal is at a 10-month high, with the number that Strongly Favors repeal at its highest level to date.”

It’s not just Obama’s health scam that might get repealed:

“Barack Obama rode a wave of voter passion in 2008 fed largely by intense dislike of President George W. Bush and the Iraq war, plus excitement among young and minority voters at the notion of electing the nation’s first black president.

Now, as Obama cranks up his re-election campaign, all those factors are absent. [snip]

Last fall’s elections were a disaster not only for the hundreds of Democrats voted out of Congress, governorships and state legislatures. They raised questions about Obama, too.

Thirty-seven percent of voters told exit pollsters they cast ballots explicitly to oppose the president, while 23 percent said their votes represented support for him.”

The Obama response is more circuses, more clowns:

“Some Democrats say they may need luck to replicate the passionate turnout of Obama’s first campaign. The often-stated claim that voters would embrace the health care law once it began taking effect has proven mostly untrue. [snip]

Beyond that, Obama eventually plans large rallies similar to those in 2008. They create showy spectacles that excite young voters, but they also serve a fundraising role. People who enter the stadiums or buy Obama T-shirts are asked to provide their names and contact information, which are used later to request donations and volunteer activities.”

The Obama answer is always “showy spectacles”.

We’re sick of showy spectacles. We’re sick of video evidence of the horror the Japanese people are facing daily. We’re sick of watching narcissistic boobs.

Today we’d rather watch decades old videos of Japanese love songs and stare up at the starry sky.

Spring seems so far away.

But Spring will soon be here.

Winter’s gray flecked head will soon be chased away.


Obama Reacts With Vigor To World Meltdown

We were told the planet would begin to heal.

Instead the planetary conditions resemble a sci-fi flick.

But not to worry as disaster piled upon disaster, as political havoc heaped upon political havoc, Barack Obama once again had his priorities:

“President Barack Obama will speak at the 126th annual Gridiron Club dinner in Washington on Saturday evening.

The white-tie event is an opportunity for journalists to poke fun at public figures and political themes of the day. .”

Barack Obama knew by wolf boy instinct that he had to go speak to his Big Media base:

“According to a release from the club, attendees on Saturday (which will include CBS News’s Katie Couric, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Diane Sawyer of ABC News) can look forward to songs about: “House Speaker John Boehner and his predecessor, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi; the memoir-writing officials of the former Bush administration; an array of U.S.-backed foreign dictators; 22 potential GOP presidential candidates from Sarah Palin to pizza magnate Herman Cain; and the media.”

Once assured that his Saturday night festivities appeared on schedule, it was time for the real priority:

“President Obama just could not wait for spring weather to arrive.

For the second week in a row, the most powerful man in the world stepped away from the White House to hit the golf course.

Even as his administration and the U.S. military help Japan recover from a devastating earthquake, and as the world worries about Fukushima’s nuclear reactor, the president could not resist taking advantage of the 48-degree weather in the Washington, D.C., area. [snip]

With cloudy skies, it’s not the best weather for golf, but Obama loves to spend his Saturdays on the greens. Last fall, Obama went golfing darn near every weekend.

These are never quick “work on your swing” trips; usually the president plays 18 holes, as he did last week.”

Recently Jay Clown, er Carney, recently explained that Obama had not spoken out about Libya because his schedule was so booked, there was no time. A concerned citizen asked:

“Japan, a friend to our country, is underwater, in flames, and likely facing nuclear meltdown(s) at their power plants. Our President will be ucking it up with Washington reporters today. I wonder if President Bush did this, would the media ignore the lack of leadership and poor taste displayed?”

Dear concerned citizen, racist MSNBC’s racits Dylan Ratigan has answered your question:

This past weekend the film Battle: Los Angeles opened in movie theaters. The flick is about an invasion of Los Angeles (“we’re being colonized!”) by aliens. While we await the first egghead reviewer to declare the movie a ‘crypo-fascist’ propaganda allegory attacking illegal aliens, we can ponder this question: What would Barack Obama do if extraterrestrials attacked earth?

After a frenzied all-hands-on-deck meeting at the White House to determine if the invading ETs could, under FEC rules (assuming they had the funds and there was no way to avoid FEC scrutiny as they have before), donate to Barack Obama’s likely campaign – Barack would order an immediate survey to see what golf courses were still available for an 18 hole round of golf.

Let’s view that Dylan Ratigan video again:

The topic was Bradley Manning and a question by Jake Tapper to Obama at the last publicity stunt. The public discomfort Obama was subjected to led to the firing today of State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley. Remember Jeremiah Wright “God Damn America” controversy? Obama protected Jeremiah Wright about “God Damn America” by saying: “I can no more disown [Wright] than I can my white grandmother.”

The moment Jeremiah Wright called Obama names however, Wright was under the bus along with the “racist” grandmother. Obama did not care Jeremiah Wright said “God Damn America” but Obama was irked when his halo wasn’t polished: “And what I think particularly angered me was his suggestion somehow that my previous denunciation of his remarks was somehow political posturing.”

Obama does not care about Bradley Manning or the questions surrounding the creeps incarceration. What Obama is upset about is P.J. Crowley causing upset by inspiring an unanticipated question which Obama bungled.

The only thing narcissist “President Who Gives A Crap?” cares about is himself. “God Damn America.” God Damn Japan. God Damn The World. The only thing that matters to “President Who Gives A Crap?” is his selfish career.

Others are now writing what we wrote about starting in 2007:

John Hinderaker at Powerline hits on something I’ve been saying for quite some time about the man in the White House:

Last night Col. Ralph Peters was on Bill O’Reilly’s show, talking about Libya. Peters thinks we should act on behalf of the rebels there, but he expressed skepticism that President Obama will ever do anything. “Obama loves the idea of being President,” Peters said, “but he can’t make a decision.

I think there is a lot of truth to that, even in domestic policy, where Obama has passively deferred to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi on all legislative matters. One can debate whether action is appropriate in Libya or not, but Peters is certainly right when it comes to foreign policy–it is a safe bet that Obama will do nothing, because doing something would require a decision.

Now it just so happens that I think we ought to stay out of Libya, so this is a stopped clock moment for me. I essentially agree with Obama’s non-decision.

However, to the larger point. I agree with Peters completely when he says “Obama loves the idea of President, but he can’t make a decision”. I might have said it a little differently. Obama loves the idea of being President and the trappings and perks. What he doesn’t like is the job.

I think that should be abundantly clear to anyone who has closely observed the man and taken a look at his background. I always remember the words of the managing editor of the Harvard Law Review who said that Obama loved the title of Editor of the Law Review, but he didn’t want to do the work. The managing editor said he rarely saw him except when it was to glad hand or take credit (and praise) for what was being done. Additionally, Obama never wrote a thing for the review during his tenure, something almost unheard of.

In all cases, his problems are leadership problems. He’s simply not a leader. He has no idea how to be a leader. But that doesn’t keep him from wanting leadership roles that offer him prestige, perks and pleasure derived from simply from being in the position.

The reason Obama can’t make a decision is he can’t reason like a leader must. He has no experience. And he doesn’t understand the decision making process as practiced by a leader. He’s never really had to make leadership decisions. So he simply tries to avoid making them. One way he does it is to ignore the problem. Another way he does this is to appoint commissions and panels concerning problems the country faces in order to defer the problem (and decision). He also like to defer to the “international community” on foreign policy or the Democratic leadership in the legislature on domestic things. Again, the avoidance of decision making.

And, in the end, he lets them make the decisions for him and then he jumps on the bandwagon with a speech full of rhetoric about how they (whichever party he is deferring to on whatever issue) have listened to him and decided on a course much like he recommended. Or something like that.

Even the Democrats are noticing how poor a leader he is.”

Possibly more than 10,000 dead in Japan. We don’t know for sure if one has occurred or not but the threats are there for several nuclear power plant meltdowns – and now a volcano has erupted on the Japanese isles. If Obama does not understand or believe what is happening there is much video and photographic evidence of the devastation in Japan.

Somali pirates are still in action and selling white people for ransom. The Fogel family of Israel has been butchered by Palestinian terrorists. These are the very people who want their own state on the border of Israel. Libya’s Ghadaffy reigns and mocks his people and the United States – Obama does nothing. One of the greatest threats to American power, our currency, is coming and Obama embraces the catastrophe.

But do not worry. Obama reacts with vigor to the world meltdown – he’s gone golfing.


WTF – The Obama Press Conference Post The Battle Of Wisconsin

The Japanese isles are prone to frequent deadly earthquakes. Last night an particularly horrific earthquake struck. Tsunami waves ensued. The full horrors of the quake, aftershocks, and the tidal waves have yet to be fully revealed. Tokyo residents have long grappled “with its vulnerability” to quakes. For many “after the ground began to rattle, the concern burned into stoic Tokyoites’ faces was much bigger. What if this was the “big one?” A major quake is often seen as overdue….”

We extend to the Japanese people and government our best wishes as they work to overcome this geologic catastrophe.

* * * * * *

Without being flippant, a different kind of earthquake, an political earthquake, struck the United States this week. The earthquake was an end to the “Battle of Wisconsin” which heralds twilight for the massive power of the union gods and the influence they wield.

A lot of union supporters were shocked Wednesday night when the Wisconsin Senate voted to pass the most controversial part of the Governor Scott Walker “budget repair” or “union busting” bill, depending on your point of view. They should not have been surprised. It was politically obvious all along that the bill was going to pass – with all the geologic certainty that earthquakes will move the earth.

In our very first article on the Wisconsin law we pointed out that this was not going to end well for union supporters. We also pointed out in that article that this law was a dagger aimed at the Obama Dimocratic Party and the unions were “collateral damage”. At the time we wrote that first article the discussion in most of Big Media was about how unions would be hurt. Little mention was made that the point of the law was against the Obama Dimocratic Party. Now our view has become the conventional wisdom.

Black Agenda Report summarizes another point:

“The struggle in Wisconsin, and those to come, must shape a politics that is independent of the uniparty, the Democratic section of which is headed by Barack Obama. Significantly, “students and other protesters don’t want Obama to intervene in the fight with Gov. Walker because of the president’s cuts in Pell Grants and a whole range of social supports.” It becomes clearer by the day that “Obama-ism, rather than providing the new Democratic dispensation that delusional progressives and masses of Blacks imagined, is a straight-line path to defeat.

What was this “Battle of Wisconsin” all about? Why were so many genuinely shocked when the inevitable happened? Perhaps surprise at the speed with which the Wisconsin Senate moved the bill is warranted. But the bill was going to pass at some point and the shock and surprise of union supporters are what shocks and surprises here. Lesson: Don’t double down on a bet when you have nothing and the opponent has aces.

What was this all about? As we wrote in our first article about Wisconsin it is about the money unions in swings states such as Wisconsin wanted to spend in 2012. It’s all about the money to be extracted with fake promises of never to come victory from union supporters who were angry but not thinking. What was never explained was the end game. What was the exit strategy? The decision to heighten the issue to a national “movement” was not a concern to those that led the charge of this light brigade. It was all about the money:

“In the aftermath of Wisconsin Republicans using a procedural move to pass an anti-collective bargaining bill last night, two liberal groups reported a fundraising bump of $200,000 alone since the bill passed.

Combined with last night’s take, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Democracy for America have raised $750,000 since the standoff in Wisconsin began for a television campaign against GOP state senators facing recall elections.

“After what they pulled last night, these Republican senators are toast. The energy on the ground is higher than it’s ever been — and our ads are providing the air cover, making clear to local Wisconsinites that the Republican class warfare on behalf of big corporations against working families has got to end,” said PCCC’s Adam Green. DFA’s Charles Chamberlain said “Republicans have awoken a sleeping giant.” [snip]

PCCC and DFA are focusing their efforts against three state Senators in districts that President Obama carried in 2008 –Sen. Randy Hopper, Alberta Darling and Dan Kapanke.

UPDATE: PCCC and DFA aren’t the only groups fundraising off of the bill’s passage last night. The liberal group MoveOn raised an additional $350,000 overnight, bringing their fundraising total up to $825,000 to be put towards the recall campaigns.”

A great deal of money was raised and spent to achieve a singularly destructive defeat. The fundraising will not end with this particular trend setting defeat. The new money extraction scheme by these organizations will now turn to equally doomed “recall elections”. The same people who fooled themselves by looking at polls showing support for the unions in this fight and polls showing dropping support for Republican Governor Scott Walker will now fool themselves into buying pizzas and sending money to recall proponents. But these recall elections are doomed to failure as well.

Even if the Republican legislators could be recalled successfully the bottom line is that the Governor of Wisconsin has some truly extraordinary veto powers:

“What most people outside Wisconsin don’t know is that our governor wields a veto power on appropriations bills so strong as to be frankly comic. It’s not just a line-item veto; Walker has the power to veto individual phrases and words (PDF) — like “not” — from sentences. If the state Senate returns to session and passes a bill with time limits on Walker’s favored provisions, he can strip out the new language and sign his own decompromised version into law. If that sounds crazy, keep in mind that until 2008 governors of Wisconsin could — and did! — veto multi-page sections of bills, leaving in place only eight or nine words spelling out a law the governor wanted to enact. And that, in turn, was a much-narrowed version of the so-called “Vanna White veto” power enjoyed by Wisconsin governors prior to 1990, when they could veto individual letters out of words and individual digits out of numbers.”

As to recalls against individual senators, the ones that are legally susceptible to recall are those that won election in 2008 because the law requires that to be eligible for a recall petition you must have been in office for at least a year. A Republican in Wisconsin who survived the 2008 elections has little to fear in 2011. The Wisconsin Senators who should be worried are those Obama Dimocrats who came into office in 2008 – they are the ones whose fortunes have fallen since their election year. Shills like Greg Sargent promote today a Move-on paid for poll that shows two Republican senators as vulnerable to recall. Good luck with that money waster.

And for those who think Republicans are going to sit back and do nothing during recall elections, try this controversial ad airing on cable stations today, on for size:

As to complaints, legal and otherwise, even those in labor “are pessimistic that there will be a legal way to block what happened last night.” Ron Marchant, the chief clerk for the Wisconsin Senate has said the vote “appears to have satisfied the requirements of the rules and statutes.”

The utter foolishness of the position of the “fleebaggers” is made manifest in the quandary of Senator Bob Jauch who is returning to Madison on Saturday:

“When Jauch returns, Senate Republicans could resurface the original bill and pass it, having the three-fifths quorum necessary to open debate and vote on the measure. That bill already passed the Assembly, and Walker could enact both. That would remove any legal impediment that might exist and make the court cases moot. Even though the amended bill passed, there’s nothing to prevent the legislature from passing the same statutory changes twice. If that happens, the game is entirely over for the Democrats, except for their long-shot recall efforts.

The fleebaggers may end up in Illinois for a very long time. They have no face-saving play left, and their return will mean utter defeat on all fronts.

As we warned at the outset, there was no exit strategy and disaster was sure to follow. It has.

Millions have all ready been raised with false promises of victory. Millions more will be raised in futile attempts to depose Walker with Russ Feingold, who lost his last election, as the cat’s paw:

“But will he get a chance next year? That’s harder to see, mainly because Wisconsin appears to have one of the more onerous recall procedures when it comes to governors: Petitioners would need to gather signatures equivalent to 25 percent of the total number of votes cast in the previous statewide election, and they’d have only 60 days to do it. By contrast, California (where Gov. Gray Davis was successfully recalled in 2003) requires signatures equivalent to only 12 percent of the votes cast in the previous election, with a 160-day window.”

Some day in the eventual future the Republicans will lose control of both houses of the legislature as well as the governorship in Wisconsin. At that point perhaps some of the union “dues checkoff” deductions might once again become Wisconsin law – that is assuming Republicans don’t take a page from recent events and become “fleebaggers” themselves and thwart the will of the then majority. But that day will not come before 2012 and the next general elections.

Instead of focusing efforts on states with weak governors or even a slight chance of “success” the groups supporting the unions, the unions themselves, along with Obama Dimocrats, chose to fight a battle against impregnable Wisconsin Republicans. The foolish “stratergery”, sans exit plan, has proved to be a trendsetter and led to defeats elsewhere:

“The Idaho state legislature approved a bill on Tuesday to strip public school teachers of many of their collective bargaining rights while protesters in five states rallied against Republican efforts to curb union power.

The Idaho bill, which excludes issues like class size and workloads from negotiations for the state’s 12,000 unionized teachers, was given final approval by the Republican-led House and is expected to be signed by Republican Governor Butch Otter.

The bill also eliminates teacher tenure, limits the duration of teacher labor contracts to one year and removes seniority as a factor in determining the order of layoffs.

Idaho is one of several U.S. states to take up Republican plans for sweeping restrictions on public sector unions in what has become a growing national debate over labor union power.”

Can you spell s-t-u-p-i-d?

Most Indiana House Dimocrats are still “fleebagging” in order to block votes. In Ohio the state senate has already approved a sure to be signed into law bill to curb collective bargaining for public employees. Despite death threats and massive protests the Republicans, once committed to the fight, knew they could not turn back. They haven’t.

Those are the tsunami waves and quake aftershocks from the Wisconsin earthquake. Can you spell h-a-p-l-e-s-s?

Last night the Wisconsin Assembly passed the bill. Today Governor Walker signed the bill into law. The Battle of Wisconsin, as predicted here, did not end well.

Speaking of hapless… Barack Obama today whined about the horror of being an American president, not the president of China. We wish China would take this useless plasterboard from us and send us a useful wind-up toy.

The irrelevance called Barack Obama held a publicity stunt today. Most everyone is ignoring this publicity stunt in favor of real news. Nothing was said about the “Battle of Wisconsin” and Obama did not put on “comfy shoes” and go to Wisconsin to join a picket line. Obama mumbled something about compromise on spending by the federal government; Obama groused about “irresponsible” two-week extensions to run the government; Obama wanly issued warnings and fey threats no one believes.

The Joker from Chicago stated this gut buster joke: “Don’t try to use the budget as a way to promote a political or ideological agenda.” That is so stupid and mendacious we won’t even try to analyze it. To add to the fakery Obama stated it was time to “get serious about living within our means and managing our budget in a responsible way...”

On Libya Obama pretended to show concern and wound up voting “present”. After today it is clear that Hillary Clinton is uncomfortable, at the very least, with what is going on. We’ve noticed that lately when Hillary speaks about Libya she either mentions the “Obama administration” as doing or saying something and in some instances Hillary states bluntly that it is Obama that is determining the inaction.

A real president, Bill Cllinton, today came out in favor of a no-fly zone. Hillary couldn’t say it. Bill did. It is a Bill and Hillary no fly zone directed at Obama. Brilliant.

The useless boob, Barack Obama, had advertised today’s presser as a discussion of “rising energy prices”. About the only thing that Obama actually said on rising prices was “don’t blame me”. Obama also mouthed some nothing-burger about maybe, sometime, maybe not, on the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Who cares? He’s President Who Gives A Crap.
