lying, dishonest media
the self-aggrandizement administration
We're hearing and learning things about Obama's appearances at the United Nations and the G20 last week from the French.
Apparently, President Sarkozy wanted to present a united front against Iran last Thursday @ the UN, but was told by the White House that the goal was not to "spoil the image of success" of Obama's first appearance at the UN.
So much for 'nonproliferation.'
Sarkozy was then forced to whitewash his speech so that Obama, a day later in Pittsburgh, could deliver the blockbuster news of Iran's "secret facility to build bomb-grade fuel."
The time, if serious about containing Iran and preventing dangerous conflict between Iran and Israel, was last week at the UN, not Friday at the G20. Obama, big Liberal talker, weak, feckless leader. Fail.
"We are right to talk about the future. But the present comes before the future, and the present includes two major nuclear crises. We live in the real world, not in a virtual one.And why is our President suddenly inserting himself into the Olympics host city process? More self-aggrandizement. It's already a done deal, otherwise he wouldn't be going to Copenhagen.
"We say that we must reduce. President Obama himself has said that he dreams of a world without nuclear weapons. Before our very eyes, two countries are doing exactly the opposite at this very moment. Since 2005, Iran has violated five Security Council Resolutions . . .
"I support America's 'extended hand.' But what have these proposals for dialogue produced for the international community? Nothing but more enriched uranium and more centrifuges. And last but not least, it has resulted in a statement by Iranian leaders calling for wiping off the map a Member of the United Nations. What are we to do? What conclusions are we to draw? At a certain moment hard facts will force us to make decisions."

"The whole purpose of this exercise we are undertaking (killing missile defense) is to diminish the prospect of the Iranians destabilizing that region in the world. I am less concerned -- much less concerned -- about the Iranian potential. They have no potential at this moment, they have no capacity to launch a missile at the United States of America," he said."Biden continues his losing streak of being wrong about foreign policy.
"The crisis in relations with Iran escalated ominously yesterday after the leaders of the US, Britain and France accused the regime in Tehran of operating a secret uranium enrichment facility buried deep in a mountain bunker near the ancient religious city of Qom. Barack Obama called Iran's activity "a direct challenge" to the international community."Obama and Biden are the idiots the American people elected to deal with these difficult problems. God help us.

I don't know what sick, twisted teacher made these kids sing this ridiculous lyrics, but he/she should be hung in the public square. It appears that activist/author Charisse Carney-Nunes has been touring public schools on the East Coast, hyping her children's book "I Am Barack Obama," and this video program is an offshoot of her "work."
Carney-Nunes claims that "the kids made up the songs on their own," by the way. Uh huh.
"Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
"He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
"He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
"He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
"He said red, yellow, black or white
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
Mmm, mmm, mm
Barack Hussein Obama"
"Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say "hooray!"
"Hooray, Mr. President! You're number one!
The first black American to lead this great nation!
"Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
To make this country's economy number one again!
"Hooray Mr. President, we're really proud of you!
And we stand for all Americans under the great Red, White, and Blue!
"So continue ---- Mr. President we know you'll do the trick
So here's a hearty hip-hooray ----
"Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!"
I wish our President had the balls to speak with courage and honesty about anything.
the united nations
All of this UN stuff is a colossal waste of time, and more importantly, money. America's UN-membership dues should be used for a better purpose than membership in a blowhard, masturbatory, self-congratulating debating society.
By the way, I agreed with Obama when he spoke about other countries helping to solve the world's problems. That was his shining moment. His worst moment: (1) Claiming the illegitimacy of Israeli settlements? Not only do I disagree with that idea, but using it in rhetoric in front of a bunch of Jew haters @ the UN to get a hearty round of applause? Shameful. And (2) this business of world equality, where no nation is better than another... It might not sound as bad had Obama not already spent the better part of eight months in office on his apology tour.
American Presidents should be the biggest American cheerleaders, not critics.

obamacare, illegals, blah, blah, blah
Joe Wilson was largely correct when he accused the President of lying.
How's that for some early morning clarity?

judgment to lead?
Meanwhile, the IAEA says Iran is nuclear now.
Letting our guard down in Europe makes no sense to our Democratic allies, who now find themselves in jeopardy to the whims and wishes of Russia.
Europe is 'dismayed.'
I find Obama particularly galling and stupid today, given that his choice to kill the missile defense shield comes on the 70th anniversary of the Russian invasion of Poland.

'improper and fraudulent'
Now, the Senate just voted 83-7 to strip federal housing funds to the criminal enterprise ACORN, President Obama's former employer.
The amendment, HR 2355, introduced by GOP Senators Mike Johanns (R-NE) and David Vitter (R-LA) will prevent "direct or indirect federal funds under the FY 2010 Transportation-Department of Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill" from going to ACORN.
Said Sen. Johanns:
“Until a full investigation is launched into ACORN, no taxpayer money should be used to fund its activities. A vote in favor of my amendment is a vote in favor of the taxpayer and a vote against the status quo.”Obama owes his election to ACORN. They were the community activists that got out the vote in 2008. One of the first things Obama did as President was give billions of tax payer dollars to ACORN.
Obama + Democrats = ACORN.

An estimated 2 million concerned Americans are marching on Washington DC today, protesting all things Obama.
WaPo claims the crowd numbers only in the "tens of thousands."
The Left wing Media Matters is taking Fox News Channel and Glenn Beck to task for promoting The 9/12 Project. A news release spouts "Fox News now routinely engages in political advocacy against the Obama administration and the Democratic Congress."
So what? ABC news, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, NY Times, LA Times, USA Today, Chicago Trib, Seattle PI, AJC, Detroit Freep, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, WaPo and virtually every other big city daily newspaper in America "routinely engages in political advocacy for the Obama administration and the Democratic Congress."

"They began jumping not long after the first plane hit the North Tower, not long after the fire started. They kept jumping until the tower fell. They jumped through windows already broken and then, later, through windows they broke themselves. They jumped to escape the smoke and the fire; they jumped when the ceilings fell and the floors collapsed; they jumped just to breathe once more before they died. They jumped continually, from all four sides of the building, and from all floors above and around the building's fatal wound. They jumped from the offices of Marsh & McLennan, the insurance company; from the offices of Cantor Fitzgerald, the bond-trading company; from Windows on the World, the restaurant on the 106th and 107th floors -- the top. For more than an hour and a half, they streamed from the building, one after another, consecutively rather than en masse, as if each individual required the sight of another individual jumping before mustering the courage to jump himself or herself. One photograph, taken at a distance, shows people jumping in perfect sequence, like parachutists, forming an arc composed of three plummeting people, evenly spaced. Indeed, there were reports that some tried parachuting, before the force generated by their fall ripped the drapes, the tablecloths, the desperately gathered fabric, from their hands. They were all, obviously, very much alive on their way down, and their way down lasted an approximate count of ten seconds."

the best health care in the world
"A Turning Point for Obama," heaps praises upon the Magic Negro simply for showing up last night. (Like BO would ever miss an opportunity to give a speech.)
"What is now more obvious than ever is that Obama is not a traditional liberal. Yes, he shares a lot of liberal values -- and he expressed that more clearly and passionately last night than perhaps ever before -- but when push comes to shove, he cares more about finding common ground than pretty much anything else."I'd really like to know what evidence there is that the President 'cares' about bipartisanship. People talk about it all the time, they talked about it during the campaign, but I've never seen one thing Obama's ever done that was bipartisan.
"Obama robustly addressed what had been the biggest flaw of his [health care] strategy so far. The problem with his consensus-building, community-organizer approach to making policy -- whether you like it or not -- is that it simply doesn't work if there isn't even an agreement about basic facts, or if some of the people in the room aren't negotiating in good faith."An "agreement about basic facts"? The White House is ignoring the basic fact that the American people don't want health care reform as it is currently being proposed, as it's currently written. The majority of Americans don't want to change our health care system.
America already has the best health care system in the world, so ObamaCare isn't a priority. People are still freaked out about the economy, people are losing their jobs or they are already unemployed. We're still fighting two wars, as a country, we're focused on stuff that is way, way, way more important that something that doesn't even require fixing.
Sigh. Liberals just don't get it. I know they want to ram this thing through so they can grab power and control all of our lives, but maybe they should have been smarter about it.
"Obama most definitely did not do what many of us had called upon him to do, and that was come down firmly on one side or the other regarding the public option. As it turns out, that's just not in his DNA."I can't even believe how absurd this paragraph is. Why didn't they edit this part out? Blind partisan alert, blind partisan alert. Froomkin's got a wicked man crush on Obama. Coming down firmly on one side or the other isn't in Obama's DNA because he's a poll obsessed politician who doesn't want to commit, doesn't want to get boxed in, to one position.
But wait, but wait. I saved the best Froomkin for last. This is simply unbelievable.
"The biggest challenge for Obama at this point, however, is the press. Will his speech be a game-changer as far as the coverage is concerned? Last night's triumphant visuals, including wildly cheering Democrats, and the resulting instapolls certainly proved a change of pace from the angry town-halls and barrage of lunacy that so transfixed our elite reporters during August. But the question is actually less whether the tenor of the coverage will change than whether the media will take this occasion to engage -- even just a little bit -- in a serious examination of the issues."The press is a challenge for Obama? How? He gets softball coverage. The press never asks him probing questions. Remember Jeremiah Wright? What about Bill Ayers? Tony Rezko? Rashid Khalidi? How can a guy with smarmy associations like Obama has be elected President of the United States? Softball press coverage.
Obama supposedly was a brilliant constitutional lawyer, yet he never produced any noteworthy scholarship? Not a word about that in the press, not a single report or expose, during the entire campaign. How does a guy without a resume get elected President? How does that happen? It happened because the press LOVES Obama. They will not report any type of news that reflects badly on BO. What the hell is Froomkin talking about?
The press has been dutifully NOT reporting what government-run health care is and what it does and how it works and what happens to people solely dependent on the federal government for wellness.
This is a big part of why people are so angry about the attempt at ObamaCare. There's been no reportage on the truth about waiting lists and the rationing and the sub-standard care associated with government-run health care systems in Britain and Canada. The American press doesn't report the legions of foreigners that come to America every year seeking skilled, specialized American health care.
The press is Obama's main ally in ObamaCare. If the media was really doing it's job, reporting the true specifics of the various Congressional plans, all efforts at "Democratic health care reform" would have been dead in the water a long time ago.
Dan, Dan, Dan.
The problem? The poll oversampled Democrats by a whopping 45%-18% margin. How's that for a representative sample?
"The sample of speech-watchers in this poll was 45 percent Democratic and 18 percent Republican. Our best estimate of the number of Democrats in the voting age population as a whole indicates that the sample is about 8-10 points more Democratic than the population as a whole."In other words, CNN is admitting this poll is inaccurate, irrelevant and meaningless. It's so biased why even report the findings of the poll?
My guess about Obama's health care speech? It's not going to move the needle as they say. I think people's minds are made up. August was the death of ObamaCare. Hopefully.
On tap, debates on nuclear weapons, specifically regarding Iran, Middle East peace and climate change. Apparently Gaddafi and Obama are scheduled to address the General Assembly on the same day and they might "cross paths." Oooh.
Do you think Gaddafi will try to pitch his tent in Central Park?
hope, change, pimps and ho's
The Baltimore ACORN office has been caught on video advising an undercover couple about cheating the IRS while running a prostitution ring. One ACORN staffer told the woman to cite 'performance artist' as her occupation. ACORN also urged the couple to list underage prostitutes from El Salvador as "dependents" on their tax returns.
So far, only two ACORN employees have been fired.
Read more about this @ BigGovernment.com
*Reminder: Obama gave ACORN $5.2 billion dollars in stimulus money.
the minority party
I don't give a damn about one-sided Congressional decorum. I want the Republicans to stand up and defeat any and all plans for government run health care. I want a Party that is going to represent me in Washington and fight for what is good and right and decent and Constitutional. Instead, they are more concerned with bipartisanship and decorum and civility.
The Democrats booed and hissed at President Bush all the time, even during a State of the Union address and nobody cared about decorum. The Democrats called Bush a liar, a moron, an idiot for eight long years. And it was all just wonderful example of First Amendment free speech.
The Democrats can say whatever they want, whenever they want, regardless of the forum. They call their opponents 'Nazi's,' 'Tea Baggers,' 'Fascists,' and it's perfectly okay. But one little unknown Congressman from South Carolina questions the veracity of a frequently fact-challenged President it somehow 'demeaned the institution.'
Congressman Wilson had every right to voice his opinion last night and the fact is, Obama's health care plans don't make much sense. Insuring 40 + million new people, not raiding Medicare, increasing options & competition AND cutting costs all @ the same time? Impossible. It's all a damn lie. And the American people don't want it.

Why apologize Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC)? The President IS lying about the Democrats' health care plans.
And who was force behind Wilson's apology? None other than our esteemed nominee John McCain. You know the loser whose main priority in life is bipartisanship?
To the kids yesterday, he sounded like a President. I didn't have a problem with anything he said. But he changed the speech.
Obama was going to give a completely different speech, one that was going to challenge America's school children about specific ways that they, themselves, could 'help' the President and his agenda, but angry parents began complaining about indoctrination, and rightfully so.
Tonight, the President has promised to finally get specific about his health care plan in a joint session of Congress. (His second since taking office) But from what I've read this afternoon he says nothing new in the speech. "Americans will die if health care reform isn't passed"? Really? That's his argument?
Either way, the House Democratic Whip says the Dems don't have the votes to pass ObamaCare.

"The Obama administration has taken important steps toward repairing the grievous harm that President George W. Bush did to this nation with his lawless and morally repugnant detention policies."They're talking about Gitmo and they get it completely wrong. Gitmo is far from being "lawless."
What "grievous harm" did Bush do to the country? He protected America, he killed terrorists and he bent over backwards to get along with the turbo partisan Democrats. Yet, the Times asserts that the former President "trampled on human rights, civil liberties and judicial safeguards," a familiar complaint from the Left.
None of these claims has ever been proven, merely asserted, ad nauseam.
I disagree. Killing terrorists very much continues to be in the national security interests of the United States. Can we really afford to allow terrorists to gain strength, to plot and plan against us again?
Obama seems to get the importance of Afghanistan, speaking about 'necessity,' although he never speaks about the war effort. I support him but wish he would speak more about the challenges ahead.
Reps. Hoekstra (R-MI) and Shadegg (R-AZ) are right on the money when it comes to ideas about health care reform.
1. Give Americans more control over their health care.
2. Make insurance portable, competitive and cheap.
3. Cover pre-existing conditions.
4. Vouchers for the poor to buy their own health coverage.
Do all of the above and health care will be reformed.

My guess is that you've never heard of Van Jones. He's President Obama's un-elected, unaccountable Czar on green jobs.
I suspect you might never have heard of Jones because there's been a near media blackout on the man. But there's no media bias, right?
I only know about Jones because of Glenn Beck, who seems to be doing the job of the national press in informing and educating Americans about their government. That's not to say that I endorse Beck or everything he says. But certainly, this Jones guy is interesting.
Yes, of course, I know all presidents have Czars. Czars are fine, usually. But, Obama has named a bunch of radicals to these czar positions. People like Jones, who claim (above) that white corporations have "poisoned black communities." Jones has also compared President Bush to a drug addict.
Bottom line? Van Jones is a racist hater who should have no place working in the White House.
Obama's Science Czar John Holdren favors population control and forced abortions. He was on David Letterman this week and Letterman was ripping Bush for ignoring science. It was pathetic, but I digress...
Obama's Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein wants to ban hunting in America and believes animals should have the right to sue human beings.
And what about Harold Koh? Koh is not a Czar, per se, but he's the legal advisor to the State Department, who in the past has advocated Sharia law (or, Muslim law) being practiced in some instances in the United States. Koh also is a self-pronounced fan of the "transnational legal process," in which international law replaces American law.
Why are all of these Obama appointees so virulently anti-American? All we can do is be aware.
Vice President Joe Biden thinks he's the top dog today, for some reason.
"Every week -- with notable exceptions -- I hold a Cabinet meeting. And most of the Cabinet secretaries attend.
"I made it clear that our focus had to be, in the first 100 days, accountability, transparency and responsiveness. I wanted each of those Cabinet secretaries to set up systems where they would have a high degree of confidence that as they implemented what they were in charge of, it would be done effectively and efficiently."Where the hell is the 'real' President? In hiding because of bad poll numbers? What happened to that 'judgment to lead' crap?
