I may not agree that John Boehner should be Speaker as my personal preference is for a true Constitutionalist like Ron Paul to be wielding the gavel, BUT he does understand that Americans are NOT the enemy and shouldn’t be punished.
Yet another open mouth/insert foot truthful moment from the Narcissist-in-Chief.
(Reuters) – President Barack Obama said on Monday he should not have used the word “enemies” to describe his political opponents as Republicans sought to make an issue of the comment a day before congressional elections.
Obama, in an interview with talk radio host Michael Baisden, said, “I probably should have used the word ‘opponents’ instead of enemies.”
He was backtracking from a comment he made a week ago in an interview with Univision radio in which he sought to persuade Hispanics to vote for Democratic candidates instead of Republicans.
“If Latinos sit out the election instead of, ‘we’re going to punish our enemies and we’re going to reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us’ — if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s going to be harder,” Obama had said.
Since when does an ‘American President’ speak about punishing other Americans? Who the Frak is this guy? Stalin, Lenin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Chavez?
…and the ‘right-wing rebellion’ of the tea parties. Mark seems to know us better than ourselves, since I did not realize that I am secretly terrified of the federal government building concentration camps that we can be herded off to by foreign soldiers. I also did not realize that the democrats and indies that come to this site were double agents for the right-wing conservative movement. My readers have totally snowed me, and I thought I had a clue about the pulse of the people.
How is it that a member of a organization that “tracks hate groups” could think it a good idea to attack the Oathkeepers. At this point, considering what we don’t know about our federal government, I’m glad the Oathkeepers are standing on the wall. How about you? Mr. Potok seems to be overly concerned that the Oathkeepers include police officers that could be laboring under paranoid ideas and then pull a weapon. I’m more concerned going to the store after dark and getting mugged. As much as I detest Bill O’Reilly, I must give him credit for offering an invitation to the Oathkeepers for an interview on tomorrow’s show. We will have to see what transpires.
On a totally different but related note, I have been background processing, and am currently working on an op-ed piece about Glenn Beck and the current media circus surrounding the tea party movement. I wanted to see if my readers think the rule below seems altogether too familiar right now.
13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’…
“…any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’ When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments…. Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target…’
My message to you – stand together, don’t scatter. There are many more of us now than ever before.
Anybody see this headline in the NY Times this evening?
“The Yankees’ Derek Jeter Surpasses Lou Gehrig’s Franchise Record for Hits”
What the MSM is not covering, and it is no surprise, is the Mother of All Tea Parties – The Patriots March on Washington D.C. At this point, Jeter’s record is of NO FREAKIN IMPORTANCE! Sorry Jeter…
Here is the opening salvo:
This full size placard with signatures was on this truck:
…and this truck was outside Walter Reed Hospital with hundreds of patriots supporting the troops.
After Walter Reed, The Dame, DrKate, myself, and 2 fellow patriots (from Atlanta and Chicago) road over to the Grand Hyatt to meet the Tea Party Express bus and found the streets lined with patriots waiting for the bus to arrive. I estimate (conservatively) 500 people milling around, and I watched Washington insiders walking down the sidewalk with their mouths hanging open.
I also found this 89 year old great-grandmother (domestic right wing extremist terrorist) waiting for the bus with her daughter and granddaughter.
We told the government that we were coming and that we wanted them to get the hell out of our way! Tomorrow, in just a few short hours we will see if the 2.5 million estimate is correct.
The quiet untelevised revolution has begun. We are now all community organizers and it is up to you to let your neighbors know that it is okay to come out of the closet. I met people from almost every state this evening, and most of the patriots have not yet arrived.
Yesterday, the demonstration outside the Cannon Building was uneventful until a suspicious bicycle saddlebag was discovered and we were asked to clear back 1/2 block from the intersection. The general consensus was that something more was happening and sure enough, a motorcade went into the capitol building a few minutes later.
No, Nancy did not stick her face out the door, but many patriots including Beverly Perlson were in attendance.
I also found out that 4500 permits have been issued for buses to unload passengers in the city tomorrow for the march…do the math.
Since it is 9.11 and the pResident has gotten the message that this day is about REMEMBRANCE even though he wants to change the face of this day also, I am going to revisit my post from one year ago today just for comparison’s sake.
As I think almost every person on the planet knows, today is the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on America by Fundamentalist Islamic Jihadists. I do not think that I am alone in trying to not think about that horrendous trauma and the subsequent rape of individual freedoms when the Patriot Act was passed by our spineless Congress, which marked the secondary attack by the terrorists. Our Founding Fathers wept.
That being said, I am writing a post, for the first time, about how this moment in history is and should be affecting our election this fall. Although Barack Obama and John McCain have decided not to be political on this day; I think it is more than fitting to be political in such a year, and years as we have seen. But first, I wanted to put up a memorial 9/11 video by onevietkid because it may help the readers understand the title of this post and what follows….
As much as I hate to agree with the current administration, somebody has been keeping America attack free for the last 7 years. Alot of someones have been putting country first, as all of us should throughout each day of our lives as we have been blessed to be born American Citizens. That being said, I must state loudly and unequivocally:
Barack Obama, How Dare You Run For President!!
How Dare You Put Your Inexperienced, Empty Chair Out In Front Of The American Public As A Choice For President!
How Dare You!!!
Do I think that a Barack Obama administration would continue to keep us from being attacked again? No.
Do I think that a junior senator from Chicago with 143 days of experience in the Senate before he started running for the presidency is going to keep us safe and move our country forward; here and internationally? No.
Do I think that a candidate that lacks foreign relations, combat, economic, executive, or war experience will make a good president in these times? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! No…
Do I think that a candidate that has never chaired one of his own committees in the Senate will be able to put a worthy cabinet together, delegate responsiblity and lead a country? No.
Do I think that a community organizer than has been endorsed by every terrorist nation in the world is going to look like a strong leader not to be f*cked with? No.
Do I think that a candidate than cannot even run a presidential campaign against the opposition without attacking the opposing vice presidential candidate every despicable way possible, has the good judgement to know which battles to fight? No.
Do I think that a candidate that stayed in an Anti-American church while race-hate was being preached has the testicular fortitude not to blink at a crucial, dangerous moment? No.
Do I think that a candidate that gamed the primaries can somehow become honest in the White House and believe in country first before individual ego? No.
Do I think that a candidate that has so many questionable associates and “mentors” who either hated on America verbally, or bombed America literally is going to keep our constitution safe? No.
Do I think that a candidate that voted to give immunity to the telecom companies so that they may continue to wiretap Americans without impunity will guard our freedoms? No.
Do I think that a “citizen of the world” who throws rock concerts, beer fests and speeches in foreign nations instead of meeting Americans that are being hardest hit by the price of oil and food, actually puts country first? No.
Do I think that a candidate who would not travel to honor/visit wounded troops will be thinking about those lives he may have to put into harm’s way with one decision? No.
Do I think that Barack Obama is in this race for himself and to trade up to a bigger house, more prestige and to make unprecedented American History as the first (half white/half) black president? Yes. Do I think he and Mishy have been all jacked up about that history fact since they met? Probably. All Ego, All The Time.
Does Michelle Obama and her very special brand of racism scare the bejesus out of me and mine? Yes. Do I think that Gumby scurries away to hide when Mishy looks at him sideways? Yes.
Do I think that many hostile, terrorist filled nations are just salivating while they wait for Americans to do something unbelievably stupid and downright moronic as electing Barack Obama? OH YEAH!
(I am sure there are more reasons that you my dear readers can add in comments…)
I would be a fool to vote for Barack Obama because he has not shown good judgement in his choice of associates or decision making abilities; his deception and allowing of gaming of the primaries in his favor, or his spineless waffling on every major issue.
I would be a fool to vote for Barack Obama because I believe he is WEAK AND SPINELESS and will allow our country to be overrun by the very same assholes that bombed us 7 years ago because he will blink when he should have stood tall.
Fundamentalist Islamic Jihadists believe that if you will not convert, you will then die. Enough Said.
