Ship of Fools: Obama’s Intimates and Advisors

The following thumbnails describe a very small sampling of the locust horde of Leftist bureaucrats President Barack Hussein Obama has deliberately chosen to help him grasp the helm of America’s ship of state, strip it from the American people, and steer it hard to port. The Obama Administration is plainly subverting democracy in America, wildly careening our previous 230-year history of democracy so dangerously Leftward that after a mere nine months we are in terrible danger of sinking. [Here’s a quick rundown of many of the hairballs Obama has chosen to surround himself with in this corrupt behind scenes government he’s running…ed]

A Vain President, or a Weak One?

George Will suggested last week that President Obama’s self-referential speech on behalf of Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympics may lead to his being known as the “vain” president. Maybe, but worse things have been said about a president and probably will be if Obama declines to send substantially more troops to Afghanistan and rejuvenate his counterinsurgency strategy. He’ll be called a “weak” president. And the label will stick. A weak president is vulnerable, politically and otherwise. In Jimmy Carter’s case, being seen as weak in dealing with Iran and the Soviets was a major factor in his defeat by Ronald Reagan in 1980. Americans don’t like pushovers, especially pushover presidents. Obama is at risk of becoming a pushover. [Obama, vain or weak?? I say ummmm YES!…ed]

Are white working-class blues bad for Democrats?

White working-class males have been among the biggest U.S. losers in this recession. Does that mean that President Barack Obama’s Democratic Party will be the big loser in the 2010 congressional elections? Some analysts say yes, even though blue-collar white males have been leaning Republican for decades and have been a shrinking percentage of the U.S. electorate. But they still represent as much as 15 percent of the voting age population and in industrial Midwest states their mounting economic woes could prove to be the difference in tight congressional races. [Yeah, I would say whitey is getting real f’n tired of getting kicked to the curb by the opportunist left wing politicians. The backlash is gonna be a real bitch just as soon as the liberal white guilt trip that put Obama in office wears off…ed]

Muslims in U.S. feel unfairly implicated in the war on terror

As the FBI pursues one alleged terrorist plot after another, Muslim Americans are grappling with a widespread sense that the government thinks they all could be terrorists. In dozens of interviews across the country, McClatchy has found that the government’s search for the enemy within is threatening to divide and destroy America’s Muslim communities. [Perhaps if muslims around the world would quit blowing innocent people up and cutting the heads off people that don’t see life through Islamic eyes these folks wouldn’t have anything to be concerned about…ed]

Gandhi Wuz Robbed

When he heard the Nobel Peace Prize shocker on Friday, Bill Clinton went into one of his purple rages. He picked up the phone and dialed the one person on earth who would be as steamed as he was. CLINTON: Hey, man, it’s me. This thing is plumb crazy. Can you believe it? W: No way, Jose!
CLINTON: First that prig Carter. Then that prig Gore. And now President Paris Hilton. The guy’s in office three days and he gets the peace prize? He should have gotten the Nobel in chemistry, because chemistry’s all he’s got. Talk about a fairy tale. This … is … just … wrong! It’s killing me, man. I feel like my head’s explodin’. First I had the vast right-wing conspiracy, and now I have the vast left-wing conspiracy.

W.: I hear ya, 42. As if his head wasn’t big enough. This cat is all cage, no bird. He doesn’t have a clue. [Wow, the snarky old bat Maureen Dowd actually wrote something funny!…ed]

Sen. Lindsey Graham working with Sen. John Kerry on climate bill

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina publicly announced his support for climate legislation on Sunday in an op-ed column with Democratic Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts. “Our partnership represents a fresh attempt to find consensus that adheres to our core principles and leads to both a climate change solution and energy independence,” the two senators wrote in The New York Times. “It begins now, not months from now — with a road to 60 votes in the Senate.” [Unfortunately the good people of South Carolina just reelected this clown so we’re stuck with this asshat RINO for another five years…ed]

2010 Census Still a Boondoggle for the Left

While there may have been a collective sigh of relief across America after the news that the Census Bureau severed ties with ACORN, it made me wonder who other Census partners were.
In short, ACORN or not, the 2010 census will be an organizing tool for the American Left. Here is a partial list of other census partners, according to the Census website: [With this group of yeahoos involved in assisting the Census Bureau gather personal information on us Americans it kinda makes you want to have the old 12 gauge handy when the doorbell rings starting next April…ed]

Some NFL players wouldn’t work for Rush’s Rams

Word that Rush Limbaugh is interested in buying the St. Louis Rams has some African American football players swearing off any future employment with the team. New York Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka and New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott say they would never play for the Rams if Limbaugh owned the team. [So the LA Times manages to scare up a couple of black guys who say they won’t play for the Rams if Limbaugh is the owner then claims “some”, as in more than a few blacks won’t play for the team? Sounds like a pretty lame effort at whippin’ out the old race card to me…ed]

U.S. SENATE SEAT: Two could beat Reid, poll finds

Nevadans say they’re ready to replace longtime Democratic incumbent Sen. Harry Reid with an untested Republican. Which Republican? Undecided. But of their top two picks — former GOP party official Sue Lowden and real estate developer Danny Tarkanian — either one would unseat Reid if the election were held today, according to a poll commissioned by the Review-Journal. Lowden and Tarkanian are in a statistical tie atop a list of nine primary candidates, according to the survey of Nevada registered voters. [Reid is a worthless bum but if the Democrats retain control of the Senate after the 2010 election the two jackasses most likely to succeed him, Chuck Shumer and Dick Durbin, are virulent anti gun fanatics. At least Reid has shown some reluctance to subvert the Second Amendment as Senate Majority Leader…ed]

Obama to repeal military gay ban

US President Barack Obama has promised gay and lesbian activists he will repeal a ban on gays in the US military, rebuking complaints he has not honoured his promises to fight for equal rights. “I will end ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ That’s my commitment to you,” Mr Obama said at a rousing speech before some 3000 activists today. (SNIP) But he did not provide a timeline for repealing the 1993 law, which requires gays and lesbians to keep quiet about their sexual orientation or face expulsion. [What? No timeline? So this is just more of his attempting to placate another left wing constituency without really intending to do what they want but that’s OK nobody will call him out on this just like they don’t call him out on any other of his lies…ed]

New Bill Would Raise Rates, Says Insurance Group

After months of collaboration on President Obama’s attempt to overhaul the nation’s health-care system, the insurance industry plans to strike out against the effort on Monday with a report warning that the typical family premium in 2019 could cost $4,000 more than projected. The critique, coming one day before a critical Senate committee vote on the legislation, sparked a sharp response from the Obama administration. It also signaled an end to the fragile detente between two central players in this year’s health-care reform drama. Industry officials said they intend to circulate the report prepared by PricewaterhouseCoopers on Capitol Hill and promote it in new advertisements. That could complicate Democratic hopes for action on the legislation this week. Administration officials, who spent much of the spring and summer wooing the insurers, questioned the timing and authorship of the report, which was paid for by America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), an industry trade group. [Boy this Obama administration really doesn’t like it when someone calls them out on their never ending attempts to screw the American public with their government run healthcare system do they?…ed]

U.S. Can’t Trace Foreign Visitors on Expired Visas

Eight years after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and despite repeated mandates from Congress, the United States still has no reliable system for verifying that foreign visitors have left the country. New concern was focused on that security loophole last week, when Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, a 19-year-old Jordanian who had overstayed his tourist visa, was accused in court of plotting to blow up a Dallas skyscraper. [It’s Bush’s fault…ed]

Job Creation 101

The White House is finally coming to realize that taxes affect job creation. Terrific. Its solution seems to be to bribe employers for hiring new workers, albeit only for a couple of years. Less than terrific. Alarmed by the rising jobless rate, Democrats are scrambling to “do something” to create jobs. You may have thought that was supposed to be the point of February’s $780 billion stimulus plan, and indeed it was. White House economists Christina Romer and Jared Bernstein estimated at the time that the spending blowout would keep the jobless rate below 8%.

Democrats face defeat in Virginia as Barack Obama becomes liability

Just nine months into his presidency, Mr Obama has proved more of a hindrance than a help to the Democratic candidate, Creigh Deeds. Unlike Democrats across the country in 2008, the state senator is keeping a very loose grip on the president’s coat-tails. “Frankly, a lot of what’s going on in Washington has made it very tough,” he said at a recent forum, adding that voters were “just uncomfortable with the spending, they were uncomfortable with a lot of what was going on”. [The Obama shine is starting to come off the trailer hitch and Democrats who try and hook their political trailer onto this fraud will find soon themselves back to flipping burgers or the ever expanding unemployment line…ed]

Cable News Irony Alert: CNN, Fox and The Disappearing General Audience

White House Communications Director Anita Dunn appeared Sunday morning on Howard Kurtz’s CNN show Reliable Sources to discuss her comments in my TIME magazine story this week. She continued her criticism of Fox News: But let’s be realistic here, Howie. You know, they are widely viewed as, you know, part of the Republican Party. Take their talking points, put them on the air. Take their opposition research, put them on the air and that’s fine. But let’s not pretend they’re a news network the way CNN is. [Oh boo hoo. The Obama White House whines that Fox News doesn’t toe the liberal line and they send programmed robots like this Anita Dunn out to shed some crocodile tears on friendly cable shows. However, the last paragraph of this article tells the true story about how Americans feel concerning their news sources…ed]

Quote of the day.

It makes no difference who you vote for — the two parties are really one party representing 4 percent of the people.
