MSM Antics: ‘Where Did Obama Go Wrong?’

Yes, put your beverages down before you start this video of Katie Couric asking, “Where did Obama go wrong to really have this happen to him during the midterm elections?” I am wondering if I start taking whatever Katie happens to be on, will I be able to sleep better at night?

More entertainment from the crew over at MSNBC making fun of Michele Bachmann as a person with a sign asking “How’s the tingle Chris?” goes by in the background.

And now for the topper; a Washington Post op-ed.  All emphasis from this point on is to highlight comments.

And now for the next battle

President Obama allowed Republicans to define the terms of the nation’s political argument for the past two years and permitted them to draw battle lines the way they wanted. Neither he nor his party can let that happen again.

Yes, the millions of tea party patriots had absolutely nothing to do with the political argument.

Democrats would be foolish to turn in on themselves in a fruitless battle over whether their troubles owe to a failure to mobilize and excite their base or to win support from the political center. In fact, Democrats held onto moderate voters while losing independents. What hurt them most was this brute fact: Voters younger than 30 made up 18 percent of the electorate in 2008 but only about half that on Tuesday, according to network exit polls. This verdict was rendered by a much older and much more conservative electorate. Yes, there was an enthusiasm gap.

Given this argument, the dems progressives will continue down their progressive yellow brick road while we womp them again in 2 years.

This only underscored that Tuesday’s results mark the beginning of the next round, not the end of the contest. Before the next election – which will be decided by a broader electorate – progressives, including Obama, have to be wiser about the fights they pick, more focused on the country’s economic pain, and as shrewd as their adversaries have been in promoting debates that rally their troops and advance their goals.

I agree that this is by no means the end of the contest; sane, thinking human beings now have to make sure the republicans do the job they were sent to the District of Criminals to do.

Obama was not wrong to fight for health care, to stimulate the economy when it was in deep peril, or to push for financial reform. But by failing to defend these achievements, the president and his allies opened the way for partisan critics, who shifted the conversation to airy language about “big government” and “bailouts.” One result: Only a third of Tuesday’s electorate, exit polls indicated, thought the stimulus had made the economy better.

Only a third think the stimulus made the economy better because they happen to be in the bottom third of the class.  The rest of us unemployed and homeless moos know better.  THE NUMBERS DON’T LIE!

Now Obama needs to offer proposals that advance the common interest and progressive ideals in ways that force Republicans to pay a price for opposing them. The economy still needs far more support, and Obama should take up the old Republican idea of revenue-sharing by offering states large-scale assistance to prevent layoffs and tax increases. This would be welcomed by the many new Republican governors. Will congressional Republicans really want to pick a fight with them?

Ah, there is the strategy; make the Republicans pay the price by using their own party against them and laying traps. More divisive tactics.

Obama should also push forward with an infrastructure bank, which has bipartisan support. There is no better time to rebuild our nation’s crumbling public facilities than when borrowing is cheap. And he should address the decline of American manufacturing, a prime cause of the discontent that roils the Midwest.

Paul Ryan Takes Chris Matthews To The Mat On Deficit Reduction

Paul Ryan Takes Chris Matthews To The Mat On Deficit Reduction

You gotta love it when Saul Alinsky sycophant Chris (the tingle has reached his brain) Matthews tries to verbally spar with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-MI) about tax increases, numbers, math, red ink, black ink, plans, maps, etc.  Chris was so mentally outgunned that I almost felt sorry for him while he was trying his damnedest to make the republicans look bad, twist answers, and blame Bush.

Chris either hasn’t seen this chart or he is lying about everything being Bush’s fault.  Make no mistake, Bush 43 ranks very near the top of my least favorite presidents’ list, but let’s give Obama the credit he is due when it comes to flushing our money down the toilet and selling our descendants into financial slavery.  Let’s also give the Democrats a massive portion of the blame when they took control of the Congress in 2006 and wrote massive spending bills.

Rep. Paul Ryan speaking at the American Enterprise Institute about the American Roadmap (7.21.2010):

Arthur’s book talks about a “new culture war,” initiated by the Progressivist elite, but there’s something in it to be thankful for.  Our current leaders with their ideological agenda have awakened America! They have reminded us of all we have to be grateful for.  We relish the opportunity to take back America’s heritage of freedom!

And here’s my final point: the case for our founding principles and for free market democracy has always been based on a moral proposition—the equal dignity of every person—the capacity to control or guide our own lives and to grow in self-responsibility to our families, our country, and our Maker.  Progressivist plans for a social welfare state are rooted in materialism.  They misunderstand human happiness and suppose it can be purchased with redistributed dollars.  We seek fulfillment in achievement and work… or earned success… our flourishing in self-government under a limited constitution.

Those who wish to replace the principles that made America exceptional have posed their challenge on several fronts at once—economic, social, international, and even philosophical.  All are interconnected, because the moral foundation that supports freedom in one area supports freedom in all.  This is a mighty trial over the very meaning and dignity of the human person.  In the political domain, the issue comes down to this: Is government to be master or servant?

My message is sober but my confidence in America is boundless.  Once Americans understand that this is the great question of the day, they will, as always, take their stand upon the rock of our foundation of freedom.

A Roadmap For America’s Future Version 2.0

Chris Matthews Worships Obama

I don’t usually give Chris too much air time, but considering how badly he is prostrating himself before the Idol of Obama, I couldn’t pass the chance up to tell him, “Chris…man – he ain’t gonna go for you.” (Yes, trying to keep it clean here.)

Hell Has Almost Frozen Over; Chris Matthews: “I’m Worried”

Hell will definitely have frozen over if a republican takes Abercrombie’s place in the House in February’s special election in Hawaii.  The difference here is the majority of the population thinks someone owes them something, and the Dems foster that delusion.

Until then, we have Chris Matthews stating that he is worried about this government, and Rachel Maddow downing the koolaid by the bucket.

Obama And Post-Racial America (New Poll)

Obama And Post-Racial America (New Poll)

I wonder how Chris Matthew’s of Obama’s America is going to react to this new Washington Post-ABC poll.

U.S. poll: fewer see Obama advancing racial ties

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Fewer Americans believe the presidency of Barack Obama, the first African American elected to the White House, has helped advance race relations compared with a year ago, a Washington Post-ABC News poll suggests.

Imagine that; considering the race card is pulled and thrown shuriken style every time the left does not like something or someone.

The poll, published on the U.S. holiday commemorating civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., found 41 percent now say Obama’s presidency has helped race relations, compared with 58 percent on the eve of Obama’s inauguration a year ago who said his presidency would help race relations.

The decline was the sharpest among African Americans, with 51 percent now saying Obama has helped advance race relations, compared with 75 percent who, last January, said they expected Obama’s presidency to help.

A bit more than a little buyer’s remorse? I wonder what Peggy Joseph thinks now?

Chris Matthews: Every Single Teabagger Is White

Chris Matthews: Every Single Teabagger Is White

AYFKM?  Enough Already!  I had to stop watching MSNBC when they went over to the dark side during the primaries, but the imbecility and bias of Chris Matthews continues to amaze me. Has this guy never heard of Lloyd Marcus, Ken Gladney, or Katrina Pierson, and when is he going to drop the campaign to incite a race war?

From Media Research Center:

Matthews: Every ‘Teabagger’ is White, ‘What’s That About?’

Chris Matthews just can’t stop implying some sort of racist motives behind tea-partiers as on Tuesday’s Hardball, the MSNBC host – in a segment about which candidate they would gravitate towards – asked his guests why the protestors were all “monochromatic,” and to add insult to injury repeatedly called them “teabaggers.”

The following exchanges were aired on the January 5 edition of Hardball:

CHRIS MATTHEWS: So who will lead the tea-baggers? Will it be Rick Perry down in Texas? Will it be Michele Bachman out in Minnesota? Will it be Sarah Palin? You first Mark [McKinnon] it’s your idea. The tea-baggers are an interesting group to watch. They’re not far right. They’re probably center-right, in fact some centrists. But they’re generally, I think, Republican voters. Right? Is that fair to say? They vote Republican?

MATTHEWS: And they’re monochromatic right?

MARK MCKINNON, THE DAILY BEAST: Well I don’t know that they’re monochromatic?

MATTHEWS: They’re not? Every picture I see shows them to be.

MCKINNON: Well there’s a lot of people out there that cuts across a lot of demographics who feel disenfranchised.

MATTHEWS: But not that other demographic.

MCKINNON: The other demographic?

MATTHEWS: Meaning they’re all white. All of them, every single one of them is white.

MCKINNON: I think that’s, I think that’s a fair characterization, predominately.

MATTHEWS: Yeah well what’s that  about?

So I dragged this video, from Katrina Pierson at the Dallas Tea Party on 4.15.09, out of the vault as a reminder to one and all what we are all about.  I do believe we should stuff Mr. Matthews email box with this video, and start boycotting his sponsors because of the above mentioned campaign.  What say you?

The Saul Alinsky Nightmare Continues (Now Out In The Open)

The Saul Alinsky Nightmare Continues (Now Out In The Open)

It is the day after the Christmas where we received cyanide capsules in our stockings compliments of the Senate and their un-Constitutionally mandated health care system that is causing the stock prices of health insurance companies to climb, and the raising of the debt ceiling.  We also found out that the Bambi Tour Entourage will be spending $56,000 for a christmas vacation estate in Hawaii for two weeks, on our dime, when some 7 million people are out of work, and that amount is more than they make in a year.  AYFKM?  Wow, Bambi and Mishy are looking more like Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos every day to the dismay of the left and the “I Frakkin’ Told You So!” of just about everybody else.

I applaud the heroics of the passengers on Delta flight 253 who took out another muslim terrorist hell bent on killing innocent people.  Everbody may want to applaud Barry Soetoro for that additional Christmas present that keeps on giving, and expect more such gifts on a daily basis now due to his lilly-livered policy toward anything anti-American.  Who knows, he may actually be laying a trap for our adversaries by effectively making America look weak. (snark).

All of that being said, I may not be posting as much this week due to the preparations for the roll out of the new theme on Friday, and because Clyde over at the Patriot Room has it spot on today.

But…

I could not let another disciple of Saul Alinsky go by.  Anybody surprised that Chris Matthews is a disciple of Alinsky?  Didn’t think so.   I wonder how many more of the media that put Barack in the White House are followers of the ’60’s radical that is the godfather of the fundamental transformation that Bambi and Company are wreaking on our nation?

From WND:

Chris Matthews: Alinsky ‘our hero’
MSNBC host hails radical community organizer

Just five days after affirming on air that he is a liberal, MSNBC host Chris Matthews exclaimed that radical community organizer Saul Alinsky is one of his heroes.

Stated Matthews: “Well, to reach back to one of our heroes from the past, from the ’60s, Saul Alinsky once said that even though both sides have flaws in their arguments and you can always find something nuanced about your own side you don’t like and it’s never perfect, you have to act in the end like there’s simple black and white clarity between your side and the other side or you don’t get anything done.

“I always try to remind myself of Saul Alinsky when I get confused,” Matthews said on his “Hardball” show, speaking to guest Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, on the topic of President Obama’s health care plan.

There are some interesting tidbits in this article from David Horowitz which I highly recommend, so do a flyby and read the rest.   Other than that, get out of the house and take a day off because the fight for our nation is about to begin and we all need to be level.

Today’s AYFKM? Award Goes To Chris Matthews….

…for thinking Alan Grayson (3 time AYFKM? Award Winner) is comparable to…wait for it….MARTIN LUTHER KING!

ARE YOU FREAKIN’ KIDDING ME?

Please be advised that Grayson has raised $150,000 for his reelection campaign after this stunt vs. Wilson who raised $2 MILLION for telling the truth. Numbers, once again, do not lie!
