obama's katrina



Obama's slow response to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is slower than Bush's response to Katrina.  Eight days slower.

By the way, that's not a political statement. It's just a fact. And it's another great example of media bias. Imagine the headlines had Bush waited eight days to assist Hurricane ravaged New Orleans.

Just take a look at all the links when you Google "bush slow response to katrina."

Google "obama response slow oil spill gulf" and just two links mention slow response.

the anti-americans

Bush Congress
It's always rich to hear the legislation-cramming, in the dark of night-voting, demagogue Democrats accuse freedom-advocating, tax-cutting, robust national security defending, Constitution-loving Republicans of being anti-American.

Especially rich for that charge to be leveled by none other than Harry Reid, who famously called the President of the United States "a loser" while speaking to a bunch of school children and who declared the Iraq war "lost" while combat operations were still in full swing.

read his lips



Crist promised he wasn't going to run as an Independent on March 28, 2010.

Read the transcript.
WALLACE: Speaking of these questions about your political future, there have been persistent rumors in Florida that you are so far behind, at least currently, in the polls — double digits to Mr. Rubio — that you may run instead as an independent.
Here is your chance to dispel all the rumors. Are you willing to pledge right here, right now that you will run in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate and not run as an independent?
CRIST: I'm running as a Republican. I'm very proud to be from the party of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, others that really have stood up for the principles of our party, like Ronald Reagan.
This is a great party. It has a great future. We have a great opportunity to win in November. It's important that we put a candidate up that can win in November.
WALLACE: So are you ruling out that you will file as an independent by the April 30th deadline?
CRIST: That's right. That's right. I'm running as a Republican.
WALLACE: You will run not for a governor — you'll run for Senate, and you will run as a — in the Republican primary.
CRIST: Chris, I'm running for the United States Senate. I know that our country needs help. I'm running as a Republican. This man to my left is a friend but I hope to defeat him on August the 24th, and I would encourage every Florida Republican to get out and vote.
April 28, 2010, the guy is a complete lying squid. He'd be a perfect Democrat.

my two favorite words: beating democrats

The Democrats are facing something rare in 2010.  Stiff competition.

Slugs like Rep. David Obey, (D-WI) who has won 21 elections and heads the powerful Appropriations Committee, Rep. John M. Spratt Jr. (D-SC) who oversees the Budget Committee, Ike Skelton (D-MO), who runs the Armed Services Committee and Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D-ND) all are in danger of losing their seats.

Good.

The party of Obama, Biden, Pelosi and Reid is also home to the despicable Obey, 71, who has served in Congress longer than his challenger,  the 38 year old Sean Duffy, a Republican district attorney, has been alive.

"It's not a lifetime appointment. People aren't happy," Duffy says.

It does my heart good to hear that Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, has said that anything short of taking back the House this November will be viewed as a failure by Republicans.

Beating these corrupt, entrenched Democrats is the best thing we can do for the country. There is no more valiant purpose, nothing as vital, nothing as important, as beating Democrats at ballot boxes in all 50 states this fall.

reform this

The geniuses over @ the NY Times are finally getting it. At least Gretchen Morgenson is. She writes:
"The leading financial proposals [like the Dodd bill] would do little to cure the epidemic unleashed on American taxpayers by the lords of finance and their bailout partners. The central problem is that neither the Senate nor House bills would chop down big banks to a more manageable and less threatening size. The bills also don’t eliminate the prospect of future bailouts of interconnected and powerful companies."
Maybe this information begin to seep into the tiny pea-sized brains currently controlling the Federal Government.

Maybe the cooperative dopes and lap dogs running the Fourth Estate will begin trumpeting this.

Perhaps these wise words will trickle down to the brain dead Obama zombies and clueless Liberal freaks.

Here are some wise words from me: Always less regulation, never more.

molly norris is my hero

 
If people are offended, it's their problem. That goes for politics or entertainment or anything else in life.

Big love, support and a round of hearty applause for Seattle artist Molly Norris and remember May 20th is "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day."

disunity


Maine Republican Senator Olympia Snowe might vote for this financial reform crap, the Dodd bill.
"If we are to effectively regulate the derivatives market, we must start the Senate floor debate with the strongest proposal we can craft and defend against the inevitable attempts to weaken it," Snowe told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in a letter dated on Friday.
That's the point. We don' t need additional regulation.  Here we go again, a squishy Republican siding with the enemy in an effort to restrain capitalism and the American free market system.

enforcing the laws

Al Sharpton is going to 'march in the streets' to protest the new Arizona immigration bill?

Like it's a racial issue? It's a law enforcement issue.

Which political party constantly breaks laws and encourages others to follow suit?

lib dem for pm?


Nick Clegg? This guy was unheard of just a month ago outside Britain.

He has one good debate performance against the exciting-as-drying-paint Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the unbelievably phony opportunistic Tory leader David Cameron, and overnight he's Barack Obama?

Britain needs help. They need another Thatcher, just as America needs another Reagan. An empty suit like Clegg isn't hope and change. He's a guy advocating failed policies that never work.

I thought the Brits were smarter than that. If Labour has run the country into the ground what do they think the Socialist Liberal Democrats will do?

Clegg has already promised aggressive banking reform and a re-examination of Britain's relationship with America. How's that for a reason to vote for the other guys?

earth day hypocrisy

 

Earth Day 2009, President Obama did his part on Earth Day, burning 9,000 gallons of fuel, flying to Iowa to give a speech about wind turbines.

Earth Day 2010, Obama and Biden both flew separately to NYC, to appear at separate events just miles apart from each other.

Don't you just respect the hell out of these committed environmentalists?

from boehner's office

For all the Yahoos out there claiming 'Financial Reform' doesn't include additional bailouts... Ooops!!

I'm glad the GOP is blocking debate on this garbage.


• The Dodd Bill Gives Wall Street a Pre-Existing $50 Billion Bailout Slush Fund.  Sen. Dodd’s financial bailout bill would create a $50 billion ‘orderly resolution fund’ ($150 billion in Rep. Barney Frank’s bill) that could be repeatedly replenished from industry assessment.
• The Dodd Bill Gives Wall Street a Treasury-Backed Credit Line.  The FDIC would be authorized to borrow from Treasury up to the amount of cash left in the ‘resolution fund’ plus 90 percent of the value of the assets of any and all too-big-to-fail firms in its control. 
• The Dodd Bill Provides a Government-Guaranteed to Wall Street Debt.  The FDIC would be authorized to guarantee the debt of any solvent bank, bank holding company, or affiliate in any amount subject only to an aggregate debt limit set by the Treasury Department.
• The Dodd Bill Institutionalizes Unlimited Wall Street Bailouts.  The FDIC, as the resolution agency for too-big-to-fail firms, would be given wide latitude to use resources to make payments to anyone in any amounts, at their own discretion. 
• The Dodd Bill Gives Wall Street Bridge Bank Authority.  The FDIC would be authorized to create a bridge institution as part of resolving a covered institution and vest the FDIC with broad authority to use the orderly resolution fund in connection with the bridge institution.


When Obama talks about 'holding Wall Street accountable' all he really means is providing benefits to his biggest benefactors. It's the exact opposite of what he says. This charade nicely sums up the Obama presidency.

[The 2010 Victory Tour needed a logo. What do you think?]

By the way, re: that last post, I want more than victory.

I want all-out humiliation for the Democrats this November.
I want a 90-seat pickup in the House and 12 new Senate seats. 
I want Democrats reminded that America is a center-Right country.
I want Obama to be thrown into an unrecoverable tailspin.
I want the word 'Democrat' to become a pejorative.

the edge of the cliff

[wl0422]
This is only April and November is a a long way off, but...I can already smell it.

In 1994, according to Daniel Henniger in the WSJ, 62% of Americans approved of the Democratic Party while 53% approved of the Democratic-controlled Congress.  That was the year of the Contract With America and the Republican Revolution.  Democrats lost 50 House seats.

In 2010, only 38% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Democrats and just 25% view the Harry Reid-Nancy Pelosi Congress favorably.

Thanks to the world wide web and instantaneous access to information, in Henniger's words, "The veil [has been] ripped from the true cost of government." Americans of all political stripes are outraged at the insane, ridiculous, out of control spending of the federal government.

Hence, the Tea Party, the resurrection of the Republican Party and most importantly, the awakening of a nation. I smell victory.

siding with democrats?

Senator Charles Grassley
Democrats want to emulate Europe, I want the Republicans to emulate the Democrats' tenacity and unity.

Why in the hell did Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) vote for derivatives legislation coming out of the Agricultural Committee when he admits it has a 'number of flaws'?

More importantly, why support a bill that aims to, in the words if Bloomberg News, "require U.S. lenders such as JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Bank of America Corp. to spin off their swaps trading desks"?

This is more of Obama's 'fundamental change' that is going to ruin American capitalism and kill the economy.

If the Republicans are ever going to be the Majority again, we really have to grow some balls, Chuck.  And if we want the Democrats to be bipartisan we have to make them compromise with us, not the other way around.

too dumb to be happening



The Moron-in-Chief is headed to Manhattan to crush capitalism, impede Wall Street, reward all his rich banker buddies with Too Big To Fail bailout guarantees and possibly introduce America to the dreaded VAT.

May God save the Republic and help us elect a Congressional majority of Constitutional Republicans in six months.

I agree with the wise words spoken by NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg last week: "The bashing of Wall Street is something that should worry everybody."

Also worrisome? The new $100 bill. Democrats just insist upon emulating Europe.

chicagoland 'reform'

The Obama administration is on another crusade, this time to 'reform Wall Street,' presumably like they already 'reformed health care' and 'cut taxes.'  In other words, they are lying. That's all they do, is lie, lie, lie, lie, and now they've embarked on another project.

I'm glad to see nine House Republicans (led by my Congressman, Rep. Darrell Issa) demanding to see the SEC documents relating to the fraud allegations against elite Wall Street investment bank Goldman Sachs. Something fishy is going on. Not that I'm accusing the White House and the SEC of collusion or anything. (audible laughter)

Said Rep. Issa (R-CA):
“The Goldman litigation … has been widely cited by Democrats in support of the financial regulatory legislation currently before the United States Senate. The American people have a right to know whether the commission, or any of its officers or employees, may have violated federal law by using the resources of an independent regulatory agency to promote a partisan political agenda.

…“The events of the past five days have fueled legitimate suspicion on the part of the American people that the commission has attempted to assist the White House, the Democratic Party, and Congressional Democrats by timing the suit to coincide with the Senate’s consideration of financial regulatory legislation, or by providing Democrats with advance notice.”
Of course, Big Bad Bob Gibbs denied any collusion between the White House and the SEC. Which means that the White House and the SEC did, in fact, collude and this entire episode is, in fact, political.
“The SEC doesn’t notify the White House of its enforcement actions and certainly didn’t do so in this case. … It’s not as if the president began talking about financial reform sometime on Friday afternoon.”
The future of Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, even chimed in on the issue. Which means he, himself, probably orchestrated and fixed this entire thing.
“Everybody at the White House found out like everybody else, when it hit the news. … Nobody at the White House knew anything ahead of anybody else. … I think what's more important is not this particular case or what SEC did. The need for this reform has existed for over a year.”
Finally, the idea that the SEC lawsuit against Goldman isn't political is shot to hell once you learn that Organizing for America, a Liberal 527, bought search words on Google.  Interestingly enough, those same search words just happen to correspond perfectly to THE SEC LAWSUIT AGAINST GOLDMAN in a new ad about the White House's efforts at Wall Street 'reform.'

mulligan

Barack Obama and Joe Biden (background) play golf on the White House lawn (24 April 2009)
Remember how Liberals beat up Bush over Enron?

Obama got SEVEN TIMES more campaign cash from Goldman Sachs than Bush got from Enron and the entire Obama administration has received TEN TIMES the contributions from those affiliated with Goldman.

Remember how Liberals claimed Bush never worked, that he went on month long vacays and was the laziest President ever?

It turns out that Obama has played more golf in his first year than Bush played for eight years.

And, amazingly, both Barry and Biden (above) have the flexibility in their schedules (while a record number of Americans are out of work) to saunter around to the back of the White House and work on their putting.

beating boxer

I'm not happy with the range of choices in the California Senate campaign against bonehead Barbara Boxer.

First, we've got Carly Fiorina, former HP CEO. She's a competent executive with real world business experience, which I like in a candidate, but she was fired and it continues to be a politically motivated controversy today.

Next, former Congressman Tom Campbell looks like a strong contender and leads the polls, but he's a tax hiker and that's not going to fly in the June Republican primary. A mailer landed in my box yesterday, with Tom's 12 year record of supporting income, sales, gas, Internet and carbon taxes. Oops.

Then there's Chuck DeVore. In a perfect world, DeVore would be my guy. I think he'd make an awesome Senator. From what I can tell, he's the only authentic Conservative in this group, but I don't think he can win. George Will likes him, but so what? If he can't beat Boxer, what's the point?

I'm supporting Fiorina because I think the gender thing helps.

wishful thinking

President Obama will be doing some stumping this week for the troubled Dodd financial overhaul bill? How exciting!

During the snooze-fest, do you think he'll explain to his audiences that this latest stab at government expansion does nothing to correct the problems with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?

If he comes clean on that, maybe he'll go whole hog and admit that, in July 2005, he and other Democrats blocked reform on GSE's that would have prevented the entire 2008 financial meltdown.

protecting america

I sincerely hope that the new associate justice of the Supreme Court is a rational, thinking person, not just a Liberal rubber stamp of Justice Stevens.

After reading this piece from John Yoo, I've realized Stevens is even more anti-American than I thought.
"On April 14, 1943, a young Navy intelligence officer named John Paul Stevens listened in on the radio traffic of American pilots on a secret mission. President Franklin Roosevelt had sent them to intercept and shoot down the plane carrying Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, the planner of the surprise Pearl Harbor attack and the leader of Japanese naval forces in the Pacific.
"Admiral Chester Nimitz leapt at the chance to take out Yamamoto. He wired Admiral William Halsey, the Navy commander for the South Pacific: "Best of luck and happy hunting." Halsey messaged his officers: "Tallyho—let's get the bastard."
"While successful, the mission disturbed the 23-year-old future Supreme Court Justice, who said in an interview published by the Fordham Law Review in March 2006 that there wasn't "a lot of deliberation before deciding to go along with the plan. . . . They had no humanitarian concerns at all of the kind that troubled me."
"He went on to say his qualms over the killing of Yamamoto led him to question the death penalty: "The targeting of a particular individual with the intent to kill him was a lot different than killing a soldier in battle and dealing with a statistic."
What 'humanitarian concerns' would we have had about the guy who planned the attack on Pearl Harbor? The idea that this idiot, Stevens, has been an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court for 34 years is disgusting.

Obama would be wise to select a replacement for Stevens who recognizes the importance of both protecting America and allowing future presidents to do what is necessary to protect America.

25 new taxes

If Republicans can't win in 2010, they will never again win an election.  On the tax issue alone, as Karl Rove points out, Republicans OWN Democrats.

But that's not all.  Americans support Republican policies on:

- Holding down taxes 56% to 28%
- Controlling wasteful spending 44% to 32%
- Controlling the deficit 45% to 36%

Republicans are within reach on two issues Democrats dominated in '08:

- Turning the economy around 41% to 47%
- Creating jobs 38% to 46%

How many people will continue to support the Magic Negro after their insurance policies and brand name drugs are taxed annually?

Putting politics aside for a moment, this is all really bad stuff. To think that our elected officials would do such harsh things to their fellow Americans? It's hard to swallow.

'substantially narrow'



Someone needs to remind Barack Obama that he's the President of the United States. Remind him of the oath of office he took, in which he promised to 'protect and defend the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic.'

Why then would Obama, go public with his assertion that he would not retaliate with nuclear weapons if/when the US suffered a biological, chemical or cyber attack? Does he not understand how this emboldens our enemies? Does he not understand how this makes America less safe? Our allies less safe?

It seems to me that this President fundamentally misunderstands America's place in the world. He fails to grasp the role America has always played across the globe. 

With this absurd pronouncement on 'substantially narrowing' the use of America's nuclear arsenal, the Reagan philosophy of peace through strength is completely lost on him. Obama wrongly believes promising not to use nuclear weapons somehow makes nuclear weapons obsolete.

Like anyone believes a word Obama says. He is a radically stupid, dangerously naive man. Substantially narrow is how I would describe his intellectual capacity.

Profile of Tea Party Supporters -- Areas of Divergence From National Adults

The Tea Party is mainstream.  Don't let morons like Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) tell you differently.

Tea Partiers are Democrats, Republicans and Independents. They are patriotic Americans who are angry about the Leftist lurch of our politics via Obama and the dim-witted Democrats in Congress.

Just as Liberals savaged Sarah Palin because they were scared to death of her, they are savaging the Tea Party.

hasta luego

Is amnesty for eleven million Mexicans the next project for community organizer Obama and his merry band of Congressional criminals?

Ralph Peters has this to say:
"No other issue of our time matters remotely as much—not our lukewarm struggle with Islamist terror or even our metastasizing deficits.  This isn’t about tax increases or where to hold terror trials.  It’s about preserving our democratic institutions for law-abiding citizens.
"Inevitably, objections to handing immigration criminals the vote will be denounced as racist, anti-immigrant, inhumane and so on.  Unable to argue on logical grounds, the left will resort to savage name-calling.  And, of course, illegal immigrants will be compared to the legal immigrants of yesteryear, as if our laws are just burdensome annoyances that insist on silly distinctions."
Oh yeah. Here's what I think about the Democrats and their illegitimate efforts to play the race card.

Beyond that, permanent majority status must sound good to Barry, Harry and Nancy. They are salivating.

Not that they need the help, really. Democrats have always had a knack for 'finding votes' on election day. (It's also called 'cheating') Daffy Duck, Mickey Mouse and lots of dead people vote for morons like Gore, Kerry and Obama every two to four years in big cities across America.

But eleven million new Mexican Democrats? That would just make it so much easier. Let the dead people and the cartoon characters concentrate their energies elsewhere.

it's the over-spending, stupid

The outlook is bleak for Democrats this fall because of over-spending by the Democrats, says James Carville.

I don't like Carville, but I usually agree with what he says about campaigning and hot button issues.  The guy understands messaging.

He and his partner Stan Greenberg have done some polling and what they found is good news for regular, hard-working, common sense Americans.

Not surprisingly, the American people oppose taxes.

(Short rant:) People are already stretched too thin by the Obama economy.  Great compassionate government that we have, right? Many Americans are struggling to stay afloat and the blood-sucking Democrats want even more. (Whew, that felt good.)

Anyway, 51% oppose raising taxes to reduce the deficit and by a 71%-18% margin, voters 'overwhelmingly' pick spending cuts over higher taxes as the best way to reduce the deficit.

Only 9% of Americans blame the deficits on the Bush tax cuts, while 20% fault the failed Obama stimulus and 17% blame the auto and bank bailouts.

Voters prefer Republicans over Democrats on government spending 43%-32%, and they trust Republicans more than Democrats 44%-31% on the budget deficit.

Greenberg focus-grouped the State of the Union and found that people hated Obama's comment about adding another $1 trillion to the national debt in 'our efforts to prevent a second depression.'
"The dial meters went through the floor. People hate it. They think it is arrogant. It means you are not in touch with their experience.”
I've said it many times before, but it definitely bears repeating in the age of Obama: What's bad for Democrats is good for America.

everybody knows

New Gallup poll: 53% say Obamacare was "abuse of power" by the Democrats.

Americans don't like Democrats brand of health care 'reform' and believe Obama, Pelosi and Reid engaged in "controversial political maneuvers by Democratic leaders to get the votes needed to pass the health care legislation."

Hey, Democrats, nobody is fooled. Everybody in America knows what lying, anti-American, cheating, scumbags you are.

November is coming.

 2012?

obama sucks


Predictably, barely into his second year and 50% of the country say Barack Obama doesn't deserve to be re-elected.

No President has ever been so unqualified for the office.

No President has ever been so vehemently anti-American, so radically radical.

No President has ever had less real life experience.

No President has lacked such a grasp of business, the economy and the proper role of government.

No President has been so partisan, so uncaring about the will of the people, re: Obamacare.

No President has ever become so unpopular so fast. No wonder Michelle is gardening.

Obama owns the bad economy because he's made it worse.

Vote Republican.
