I’m imagining a high school kid sitting in the principal’s outer office waiting for his sure to be angry parents to arrive. They were summoned by the school because of the student’s misdeed. The tiny little brain is churning, trying desperately to come up with an excuse; any reason to wiggle out of this tough spot; as if this couldn’t be helped; as if it wasn’t their fault. What kind of a whopper would they come up with?

A few days ago I posted a number of comments by Obama’s “friends“ that were less than complimentary. At the end I purposefully left off the thousands and thousands of gaffes by his running mate and the guy next in line to the presidency, Joe Biden. I shouldn’t be surprised that even Joe couldn’t find a way to force me to use him in the post. IT IS EXTREMELY SCARY THAT THIS LOOSE-TONGUED IDIOT IS THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. He is like an overdone SNL skit though all SNL skits are almost always overdone. I have to grudgingly admit that the new teeth and hair look better than the old Joe. You can put new hair and teeth on a pig, but it is still Joe Biden.
In what is the worst of all manners, President Obama has bragged thousands of times about “getting bin Laden,” but has recently taken campaign donations from the dead al Qaida leader. Say what? As his campaign did in 2008, Obama “turned off” the controls/safeguards that prevent foreign contributions to his campaign coffers. World Net Daily had the idea to see if Osama could donate from a Pakistani Internet Protocol using a throw away credit card and a fake address. So what do you think happened?
It is great having billionaires who are first conservative, second rich, third not afraid to speak out, fourth not afraid of Obama, and Fifth not afraid to use their money/position to push back at liberals…especially the one that inhabits the White House. The Koch brothers are not out in public like liberal hypocrite Warren Buffet even though the left is desperately trying to make them a symbol of their success. Until I looked for a photograph of the Koch brothers I had never even seen their faces.
The Obama campaign recently sent out a fundraising letter using the Koch brothers as the foil;
First the headline (with a link to the original story)…
…Now the story
INDIANAPOLIS – After losing their fight against right-to-work legislation, labor organizers are making a desperate bid on shop room floors and at union halls to persuade members to keep paying their union dues and avoid crippling labor’s influence in Indiana [and all across the country although that has been the trend for more than a decade with decreasing membership in the private sector].
I’ve gotten to the point that before I read a newspaper article (yes I still read the newspaper every day) I read the headline then where the news story originated. For many news sources like the Washington Post, the LA Times, and the New York Times that is where I stop because their slanted reporting is more than I can take. If the story looks interesting I’ll look for a more reliable online source. One news source that seems both prolific and particularly biased is the Adulterated Press (or “AP”).
“Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt contended that the president has not broken his promise on [taking money from] lobbyists, saying in a statement that the Times analysis “misses the forest for the trees.”
The accusation has to be particularly hurtful to Obama since it came from their long-time pubic relations firm, The New York Times. If you factor in “liberal-speak” there is a missing word in the quote from Obama’s spokesman and that would be the word “directly.” Once the money is bundled and rebundled and given by lobbyists, but from their personal accounts it’s all mixed up. Who could follow it. You would have to be as naive as a mass media journalist to believe that lobbying money doesn’t make its way into Obama’s coffers.
As the Republican presidential race heats up (a little) it has become interesting to see how the candidates fates slide up and down. There seems to be no doubt that Mitt Romney is the choice of RINOs, the left, and the main stream media. I agree with them that Romney will be a great candidate…for Obama to beat. We had the ascension of Bachman only to see her blow a tire with her position that the Gardasil somehow causes mental retardation (I know she thought she walked back the comment, but she kept repeating it. The media is off the hook and no longer have to dedicate resources to destroy her.
I was recently watching one of my favorite shows, Always Sunny In Philadelphia. In one episode the main characters were held hostage by some local bullies and one of the hostages talked about Stockholm Syndrome and even began to exhibit symptoms. Stockholm Syndrome is where hostages who have been held for a long time begin to share the values and beliefs of those who are holding them captive. I have a very healthy disrespect for the main-stream media as water-carriers for the Democrats and liberal causes, but I have begun to feel sorry for them. I do believe that they may actually have Stockholm Syndrome.
It is often interesting to look at the ease with which non-incumbent candidates can point to the incumbent’s record and critique their performance and bloviate about what they would do in similar situations. It is hard to prevent such a successful strategy and we have learned with the current resident of the White House that a blank slate can be a powerful tool when combined with a thorough lack of inspection of a candidate’s qualifications by both the main stream media and many of the voters.
