Smells Like Buyers’ Remorse

Smells Like Buyers’ Remorse

This is one of those situations where I will never get over saying “We Told You So!”.  I know, it’s cold and manner-less, but considering the devastation that has been wrought on our economy, society, and our childrens’ future – it’s the only comfort most of us have right now.  The political class in this country has to be reined in because their judgment leaves quite a bit to be desired.

Gergen: Mr. President, take command

(CNN) — Enough is enough! After the latest failure by BP to plug the gaping hole, it is time for President Obama to take full command of this growing national catastrophe. Immediately!

The president in his press conference this past Thursday assured the nation that he and his administration were already in charge and he has manfully taken personal responsibility — “the buck stops here,” he said, echoing Harry Truman. Well, it may be true that BP has been acting all along under the oversight of the federal government, but that supervision has been loose and ineffective.

To the world, it has been apparent that the government has been riding shotgun and BP has been at the wheel. It’s time for the White House to get in the driver’s seat and get us to safety — fast.

Meanwhile, no longer is the Exalted One seeing dead servicemen in the audience, he wants to commemorate our fallen soldiers through ‘deeds’. Time to put the pipe down, Mr. pResident.

Do you think Mr. Gergen over at CNN is feeling better or worse now?

Obama urges nation to honor Memorial Day through ‘deeds’

(Editor’s Note: “Or How To Really Upset The Military By Not Visiting Arlington Cemetery.  This must be more of that hopey-changey sh**.)

President Obama called Saturday for Americans to honor their countrymen who have died in war, saying that Memorial Day should be marked by “doing our part for the loved ones our fallen heroes have left behind and looking after our military families.”

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama said, “We are called to honor their ultimate sacrifice with more than words. We are called to honor them with deeds.”

“By making sure the men and women serving this country around the world have the support they need to achieve their missions and come home safely,” he said. “By making sure veterans have the care and assistance they need. In short, by serving all those who have ever worn the uniform of this country – and their families – as well as they have served us.”

Obama is spending the holiday weekend in Chicago, his home town, and will visit the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery on Memorial Day.

But some critics, most of them politically conservative, have complained that he is not visiting Arlington National Cemetery, the traditional focal point for Memorial Day events. He did so last year.

Here’s a question; are they moving the Capitol to Chicago?

A Rebuttal To The Apology Tour, 2.0

A Rebuttal To The Apology Tour, 2.0

I have been asked by more than a couple of readers to re-post this article from last year on this day when we honor our fallen heroes. The inspiration for the article was the apology tour that Barry continues with his bowing and scraping to just about everybody but Americans.

I have another article that I have been working on that will be published today which (in my humble opinion) states the reason why we see so many of these white crosses all over the world.  Look for it later today.

20 Examples of American Arrogance

In alphabetical order

Just Europe

2289 Americans

We Apologize.

aisne-marne-cemetary

The 42.5-acre Aisne-Marne Cemetery and Memorial in France, its headstones lying in a sweeping curve, sits at the foot of the hill where stands Belleau Wood. The cemetery contains the graves of 2,289 war dead, most of whom fought in the vicinity and in the Marne valley in the summer of 1918. The memorial chapel sits on a hillside, decorated with sculptured and stained-glass details of wartime personnel, equipment and insignia. Inscribed on its interior wall are 1,060 names of the missing. Rosettes mark the names of those since recovered and identified. During World War II, the chapel was damaged slightly by an enemy shell.

2. The American Cemetery at Ardennes, Belgium

5329 Americans

We are arrogant.

ardennes-cemetary

The 90-acre cemetery contains the graves of 5,329 of our military dead, many of whom died in the 1944 Ardennes winter offensive (Battle of the Bulge). The headstones are aligned in straight rows that form a Greek cross on the lawns and are framed by tree masses. The cemetery served as the location of the Central Identification Point for the American Graves Registration Service of the War Department during much of the life of the Service.
