What I Find Enchanting: 100-Day Surprises!

This morning I received a call from a New York Times reporter asking me what I found most enchanting about Obama's first 100 Days in office. But, enchantment aside, I will at least list a few things that I found most surprising about his initial three months or so....

1) Most surprisingly, I learned that for all of the Messianic worship cast his way, Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama is actually NOT the Messiah. Now, I did not learn this from his followers (who still seem to believe he is The Second Coming) or the press (who don't believe he is the Second Anything, but rather that he is The One), but Obama himself confessed it during his 100-Day snoozefest press conference.

Recall, if you will, that the Biblical record of the coming of The First Messiah contains this claim:

"10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.... 13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. 14 And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever. 15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. 16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses." (Matthew 8:10-17)

When The First Messiah came, he performed miracles in fulfillment of Messianic prophecies, to demonstrate that he was, indeed, the Messiah.

But while confessing that he is engaged in the process of "remaking America," The One also noted that what he has done to this point "is only the beginning of another long journey.... We've got a lot of hard decisions and tough choices and hard work ahead of us."

Then he said, to an audible gasp and the sound of a thousand rosaries being retrieved and violently clutched close to hearts, "I am not a miracle worker."

Officially, I suppose that removes The One from the Messianic sweepstakes.

Other surprises?

2) While it is not surprising that Obama blames his predecessor, George W. Bush, for every problem known to man, including the presence of mold on sliced bread, it is surprising that he is sticking with the whole "fiscal responsibility" charade.

In a meeting with citizens at a public high school in Arnold, Mo., preceding his orgy... ummmm... "enchanting" press conference with lustily-drooling reporters on Wednesday night, Obama responded to a question about the budget deficit that he inherited by saying, "That [deficit spending] wasn't me."

Really? The most liberal member of the Senate didn't spend any money during his time in office, huh? Who'da thunk it?

In an AP story on Obama's response, Calvin Woodward wrote:

"Congress [controlled] the purse strings, not [George W. Bush], and [Congress] was under Democratic control for Obama's last two years as Illinois senator. Obama supported the emergency bailout package in President George W. Bush's final months - a package Democratic leaders wanted to make bigger.

To be sure, Obama opposed the Iraq war, a drain on federal coffers for six years before he became president. But with one major exception, he voted in support of Iraq war spending."

Hmmmm. Is there something about the water fountain at the DNC that makes people liars? First Bill Clinton, now this....

So then The One keeps repeating that his spending is actually going to decrease the deficit? He says that his budget "will cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term", which even the AP calls an "eye-roller." Apparently his solution for inheriting a $1.3 trillion deficit, a criticism that he repeats frequently and with zeal, is to add $4 trillion of his own in deficit spending.

Obama's expansion of health, education, and other spending will nearly quadruple the deficit, according to the AP. Only in Obamanomics is this known as "fiscal responsibility."

3) I find enchanting that the need for photo-ops showing off Der Feuhrer, I mean, The One, and his new toys are worth $329,000 and the fear of the people of New York.

4) What I find most enchanting about Muhammad's... errrrr, Obama's first 100 days is the abject worship rendered to him by the media. "What do you find most enchanting?" Was that a serious question? And all night long not one of these lap-dogs in the White House Press Corps asks a question on the economy?

And he says he is engaged in "remaking America" and there are no questions as to whose image the country is to be remade into? Maybe it is because they already know which direction "hope and change" is taking us....

Arlen Specter, No Longer a RINO

Following an apparent recruitment in which Joe Biden, Barack Obama and other Democrats were involved, Arlen Specter today abruptly switched to the Democratic party, actualizing what Republicans have said about him all along.

"I am unwilling to have my twenty-nine year Senate record judged by the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate," said Specter in a statement.

Unfortunately, that is all that is left for you, Arlen.

Specter became well-known for his defense of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in the hearings dominated by the false allegations of Anita Hill. However, his voting record on both fiscal and social issues has always been far more Democratic than Republican.

Specter was one of the original members of Congress to earn the moniker of "RINO," a Republican In Name Only. Does his defection make him a "DIRA," a Democrat In Reality, Actually?

With Al Franken apparently leading in the Minnesota Senate race, still not decided as of this date, Specter's defection (or, admission?) would give the Democrats enough senators to overcome a filibuster.

Interestingly enough, Arlen Specter attempted to have a rule passed in Congress to prohibit inter-term party defections when Jim Jeffords had his Benedict Arnold moment in 2001.

The 100 Day Verdict: Obama Sucks!

If one listens to MSNBC or CBS, one gets the impression that, not only is Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama the greatest president in American history (and perhaps the most wonderful divine gift to mankind since fire), but that the American public is squarely behind his socialist machinations - given the exception of a few fringe lunatics and the KKK.

The evidence, as always, is completely different from what the media is telling us.

There are a half dozen ways to measure the "verdict" on Obama prior to the 100-day mark of his administration, and all of them agree: Obama Sucks!

First, Obama, we think, was largely elected on a two-pronged theory, partly subjective and partly objective. Of course, most of the votes that flew Obama's way were from those who were grossly misinformed; people who are so utterly ignorant that they ought not only be allowed to vote, but they ought not be allowed to drive! Typical of this group (certainly 70% of Obama voters) are those who voted for him because he would be the nation's first black president, those who voted for him because of Oprah's endorsement, and those, like the now-famous YouTube video of the young black lady who supported The One because now she would never have to worry about paying her mortgage or for gas again.

These people are too ignorant and morally perverted to ever come to know the truth. They won't be convinced that their subjective fantasies have the reality quotient of "Once upon a time in a land far away...." even if they someday receive orders from Obama to come to the county square for a free Kool-Aid treat.

For those few who actually had an objective reason for supporting Obama, it was likely because of the sorry shape of the economy at election time. A strange congruence of forces which came together merely months before the election coupled with the simplistic thinking of Americans (i.e., "if it happened under Bush, Bush caused it" when in fact the forces that caused the economic meltdown were entirely the brainchild of Bill Clinton and the Congressional Black Caucus) basically ensured Obama's election as Americans searched for someone to fix the economy. In a strange twist of fate, the candidate representing the Democratic party (who caused the economic meltdown) was viewed as being more capable of repairing the crashing economy than the candidate of the Republican party (who had personally warned that Democratic policies would bring this meltdown to pass).

So, what has Obama done for the economy? This will be our first objective measure of the Obama administration.

On the morning of the 2008 election the Dow Jones Industrial Average opened at 9326. On the evening of the next day, the first full day of trading with the certainty that Barack Obama would be president, the market had taken a nearly-200 point nose dive to 9139. Not bad... (sic). Between the election and the inauguration, the market continued to decline to the tune of 1100+ points.

On February 17, Obama signed his first major piece of legislation into law - the multi-trillion dollar stimulus package. The stock market on that day dropped from 7845 to 7502. On February 27, Obama announed his budget proposal. The Dow Jones responded by dropping from 7181 to 6763.

Between January 2009 and March 2009, the DJIA lost 28%, nearly a third of its value, its worst performance for the same time period for any U.S. president in history.

While it is true that capital markets are forward-looking, the Dow Jones largely reflects the so-called "Large Cap" stocks which tend to reflect the current condition of the market, especially in difficult times. It is the NASDAQ that tends to reflect stocks that are growth-oriented, and therefore that index tends to be more forward looking. Surely, if the capital markets believed that the future looked rosy with Obama, the NASDAQ would reflect that hope for growth?

Between November 3, 2008, and April 28, 2009, the NASDAQ has declined from 1726 to 1694.

Not as precipitous a drop, but the NASDAQ has been down as much as 450 points during the Obama tenure. The objective economic results thus far are decidedly mixed to negative.

Secondly, Obama has proposed spending at a level, during his first 100 days, to send the U.S. careening into bankruptcy, proposing almost $10 trillion in spending in 100 days for a country that had already amassed $11 trillion in debt in its 200+-year history! Doesn't "fiscal responsiblity" feel good?

Thirdly, the tea-parties which have met the Obama administrations proposals and performance are nearly unprecedented in America's history. Outside of the Civil War, is is hard to imagine a more negative greeting to any president upon his election. While there is a lobotomized and ignorant plurality of the nation that is easily led by Oprah's pallid imitations of papal bulls, those who are most informed and most engaged in the political process are horrified by Obama, his incompetence, and his proposals.

Finally, the polls themselves present a decidedly mixed picture of the nation's "approval" of Obama and his administration. Despite the natural tendency of Americans to support the nation's leadership and the understandable desire to give each new president a chance to enact his own agenda, Obama's strident socialism and evident incompetence has already placed him in a highly unusual position - he is one of the few presidents to have lost significant support during his first 100 days.

Obama's current "approval ratings" stand at 56%. This is a paltry figure, given that he was elected with 53% of the vote and that his approval rating in February was 65%. Even so, his 56% approval rating places him SEVENTH out of the last nine presidents for approval ratings at the 100-day mark. George W. Bush actually had a higher approval rating at the 100-day mark, exceeding Obama's by six points.

Further, as I have previously noted, a non-scientific poll conducted by MSNBC in fact had nearly forty percent of all respondents giving Obama an "F" for his performance for his first 100 days.

The orgiastic writhings (and writings) of the mainstream media notwithstanding, the objective measures of Obama's competence to this point are unencouraging to say the least. To say the most? Obama sucks!

Barack Obama: Teleprompter Whore

The Messiah was elected to office, not based on any of his accomplishments, but based on the fact that he is "hip," and "the greatest orator of our time."

Ahhhhh, but now the truth is out. Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama is actually a much better READER than a SPEAKER.

His addiction to teleprompters, and his consequent revelation that he is not a man whose words emerge from an inner, burning conviction, but rather a man whose words are inserted into him by his handlers, continues.

Yesterday, before the National Academy of Sciences, Obama started to reintroduce some luminary that he had already introduced, then realized he was ahead of his teleprompter, and had to request that the teleprompter be fast forwarded a bit....

"In addition to John.... sorry... the, uhhhhhhh, I just noticed that I jumped the gun a little bit. Go ahead and move it [the teleprompter] up. I had already introduced you guys."

This, of course, is not the first time that this has happened to The Messiah. It seems that his innate knowledge of politics doesn't extend very far beyond, "See Jane run."

And without a teleprompter to begin with, the man is positively an embarrassment.

Gaffe, thy name is Obama - with or without his trusty teleprompter.

Poll on Obama's First 100 Days is hosting an unscientific poll as to how Americans think that Obama's first 100 days have gone.

As of 8:30 a.m. on 4/24/2009, 36% give him an "A" and 39% give him an "F." That is with nearly 3 million responses thus far. Approximately 12% give him either a "B" or a "C" while 13% give him a "D."

It is interesting that a majority of Americans give him a grade of below average. Yet a story from 4/23/2009 uses such superlatives as promise-keeper, game changer, FDR, and one cool cucumber to sum up his first 100 days. This article's purpose was to survey the attitudes of the press regarding Obama, and examine the story that is being pushed by insiders in the Obama administration.

The disjuncture between the common man and the chattering class has perhaps never been wider.

See the MSNBC poll here. The MSNBC page carries a disclaimer that it is an ongoing, unscientific poll. However, even a Gallup poll found decidedly mixed results, as 43% of Americans gave Obama a rating for his first 100 days as Just OK, Poor, or Terrible.

Democrats are Fools (With Proof!)

Conservatives are often presented as being somehow less-than-brilliant. On MSNBC recently, Janeane Garofalo asserted, "The limbic brain inside a right-winger, or Republican, or Conservative, or your average white-power activist... the limbic brain is much larger in their headspace than in a reasonable person, and it's pushing against the frontal lobe, so their synapses are misfiring.... It is a neurological problem that we are dealing with."

Yet when the positions of Conservatives and Liberals in the modern world are compared, it is clearly evident that Liberalism is wholly composed of anti-intellectualism. Every single logical error known to man is duplicated continuously by liberals.

Garofalo herself is an example. She has nothing meaningful to say about any political issue whatsoever, so she simply practices the attack against the man error, called in philosophy the error of the ad hominem attack. She assumes, with no evidence other than her own prejudices, that those who disagree with her are retarded with swollen brains, racists, violent, and irrational.

Yet she offers nothing other than constant slander to prove her points.

Further, these "brilliant" liberals are known for their own personal incompetence (Carter, Clinton, and now Obama), hardly the mark of intelligence.

Liberalism constantly pleads two inconsistent sides of the same issue. This is never more clearly in evidence than in every single assertion made by feminists.

Feminists simultaneously offer that women are capable of anything that men can do. Then they demand affirmative action and governmental subsidies so that women can get busy doing what men are already doing.

Feminists simultaneously offer that women are incapable of lying about sexual violence, then demand that evidentiary standards for such allegations be lowered because, too often, when a woman makes an allegation her allegation is wholly unsubstantiated or contains volumes of contradictory testimony.

Even economically, this very week Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama demonstrated his utter comfort with inconsistency when he urged "fiscal responsibility" by demanding that his cabinet find a way to cut $100 million from its operating budget. This, after he singlehandedly has proposed enough spending in less than 100 days in office to double the entire federal budget, built from the year 1776 to the end of the Bush administration.

John McCain and George W. Bush spent much of the time period from 2001-2008 warning Congress that Democratic initiatives enacted under Bill Clinton to lend mortgage money to minorities who could not afford to buy homes had the potential to wipe out the American economy. Democrats like Barney Frank and Charles Schumer actively argued that Republicans were wrong in their warnings, and Barack Obama conveniently ignored such warnings. Today, of course, Democrats say that the meltdown was George W. Bush's fault.

Finally, Democrats are the masters of the "Big Lie" concept of Goebbels, who said, when he was a Nazi propagandist, "Tell a lie big enough, long enough, and people will believe it." Perhaps the greatest illustration of this is the continued warbling of ignorant libs that there was "no weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq." Of course, it is a long-established fact that sarin gas was found in Iraq, and sarin gas is a "weapon of mass destruction."

So given that all of the evidence and logic is on the side of Conservatives, I once thought that Democrats were merely liars - that nobody was as stupid as they constantly pretend to be. But then today I ran across this quote from one of the Godfathers of Liberalism in America. And this quote, coupled with the 100-year history of liberalism in America, simply makes me think that Liberalism/Marxism/being a Democrat/whatever is simply an intentional, morally-culpable excursion into utter stupidity.

William O. Douglas was a Supreme Court Justice for nearly 37 years (the longest-serving justice ever), retiring in 1975. He is widely regarded as the greatest liberal legal mind of his age. University of Chicago president Robert Maynard Hitchens called Douglas "the most outstanding law professor in the nation" before his appointment to the Supreme Court.

Yet, what was Douglas' view of his own "decision making" from the bench?

"At the constitutional level where we work, 90 percent of any decision is emotional. The rational part of us supplies the reasons for supporting our predilections."

Did you catch that?

Mr. Brainy, excuse me, JUSTICE BRAINY, said, "I come to my liberalism honestly. I make up my mind based on my emotions then I just use my mind to figure out some way to justify what I already want to do." One of the leading "intellectuals" of the liberal movement admits - well, he admits he isn't really an intellectual. He just "feels" things. He is led by his emotions, not his mind. Sort of like your average 17-year old girl.

Perhaps it is not the Conservatives who are the anti-intellectuals, Ms. Garofalo?

Bush, McCain Warned of Economic Crisis; Obama Ignored

Be sure to watch this video before YouTube pulls it!

As far back as the Clinton administration, Republicans, particularly John McCain, and later officials of the George W. Bush administration, warned Democrats of an impending housing market problem due to the politicalization of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Beginning in April 2001, the Bush administration complained that the size of the two quasi-governmental entities, coupled with a troublesome regulatory environment inherited from the Clinton administration (i.e., the subprime loan initiatives rammed through Congress by Clinton and the Congressional Black Caucus), portended a "potential problem" which could lead to "strong repercussions in financial markets" if not immediately addressed.

In 2003, the Bush administration upgraded its warning concerning the two housing giants to the status of "systemic risk," indicating that problems with the two would likely extend beyond the housing market itself and have a detrimental effect upon the entire American economy. That year, Treasury Secretary John Snow was pushing Congress to more actively exercise its regulatory powers over both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, asking for a regulatory agency that would focus on "the safety and soundness of their activities."

Democratic Congressman Barney Frank (MA), however, who had already placed one of his homosexual lovers, Herb Moses, in a leadership position at Fannie Mae, oddly enough as Assistant Director of Product Initiatives (a position that had direct oversight of subprime lending programs), indignantly insisted to Snow that "Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are NOT in a crisis." In fact, Frank insisted that the role of the federal government was to encourage more subprime lending to minority and low-income homebuyers.

Frank said, "The more people... exaggerate the [lack of] safety and soundness, the more people conjure up the possibility of serious financial losses to the Treasury, which I do not see... we see entities [Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac] which are fundamentally sound financially... and even if there were a problem the federal government doesn't bail them out [HUH?!?!?!?, ed.], ... then the less I think we see in terms of affordable housing." Emphasis added.

In 2005, Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan warned, "Enabling these institutions to increase in size - and they will once the crisis in their judgment passes - we are placing the total financial system of the future at a substantial risk." Greenspan specifically tied the potential insolvency of Fannie and Freddie, and consequent meltdown of the financial system, to the lack of a responsible regulatory regime.

John McCain, in a Senate speech in 2006, stated, "For years I have been concerned about the regulatory structure that governs Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac... and the sheer magnitude of these GSEs [Government-Sponsored Entities] and the role that they play in the housing market.... [Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac] need to be reformed without delay."

Once again, the incompetent Marxist social engineering of Democrats has backfired. The housing market crisis that precipitated the wider financial meltdown was wholly the product of the Maoist thinking of Bill Clinton and the Congressional Black Caucus, and was roundly defended by such liberal blunt objects as Barney Frank and Charles Schumer.

Who saw clearly what was happening? Why, of course, those whom the Democrats ignored at the time of their warnings but find the cojones to blame now! George W. Bush, John McCain, Alan Greenspan.... Note, however, that almost as an afterthought, the reporter announces that, on what could have been the most significant legislation on the issue, Obama "did not weigh in."

What are the odds that Obama and his bunkies are going to solve the problem that they were not wise enough to see in the first place, in spite of all the warnings and signs to the contrary?

Not likely.

Substance Over Style (Finally)

In a world in which such talentless morons as Oprah Winfrey and Britney Spears can be considered "stars" in any sense of the word, I look back with great longing on the days when people became famous because they actually had done something worthwhile. I remember when people could actually play the guitar, and that was the key to being a rock star (Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhodes). I remember when men built companies (Ross Perot) rather than inherited money (Donald Trump). I remember when women became famous because they were beautiful and talented actresses (Lynda Carter) rather than simply cheesy, young, rich, train wrecks (Paris Hilton). I remember when politicians built careers and showed leadership for decades (Ronald Reagan) rather than simply being a worthless empty suit, a political flavor-of-the-month (Barack Obama).

The one person that sort of functions in my own mind as the watershed for when fame was disjoined from substance, and style began to predominate, is a singer named Christopher Cross. An ugly guy, overweight, and not particularly socially adept - he wasn't the kind of musician that would likely be found on a typical teenage girl's bedroom wall. But boy could Christopher Cross sing. He had talent. Nothing to look at, mind you, but he oozed talent.

That was the 1970s. Jump ahead nearly 40 years to a time when A Messiah is anointed based on his ability to move men with his great swelling words. A Messiah is promised who has spiritual depth and a wisdom beyond his years. And of course these false hopes are only maintained during the campaign by controlling his appearances more than a person stricken with OCD controls their bathroom's tap.

And of course the style falls away and reveals the stunning lack of substance when the election is over: a bungling idiot incapable of forming an English sentence without a teleprompter, a fool incapable of forming a cabinet, a liar incapable of telling the truth, and a socialist incapable of masking his naked thirst for power.

How refreshing to find, in a world corrupted by style, that substance still lives. There may be hope for society yet....

Susan Boyle for president.

How wonderful to learn that there is still something within man - some men - that is full, genuine, and real. I'll gladly place my HOPE for CHANGE in the 48-year old virgin....

Barack Obama at Office Depot

"Petty thieves, we hang; great ones, we elect to office."

- Aesop

The current estimated future obligations for the United States in regards to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are $1.25 quadrillion.

The Obama presidency, in less than 100 days, has already spent or proposed in the neighborhood of $10 trillion. Yes, that is $10 thousand billion.

The federal deficit amassed in over 200 years from the American War for Independence in 1776 to the administration of George W. Bush in 2008 was roughly $11 trillion.

The total interest on the U.S. debt is $1.2 billion per day.

Today, Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama demanded that his cabinet find a way to save $100 million.

Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano today indicated that her executive department can save millions of dollars each year by purchasing office supplies in bulk.

"According to [Napolitano], millions of dollars can be saved by making changes in such things as how the department orders office supplies, gets computer software and uses energy."

So the answer for Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama's DOUBLING of the federal debt in less than 100 days is to, in the future, purchase paper clips from Sam's Club and Office Depot?

The AP (apparently now fully recovered from campaign-season orgasms) even reports the cuts as making hardly a "dime's worth of difference."

"Cut a latte or two out of your annual budget and you've just done as much belt-tightening as President Barack Obama asked of his Cabinet on Monday.

The thrifty measures Obama ordered for federal agencies are the equivalent of asking a family that spends $60,000 in a year to save $6."

The ship is sinking. Find a lifeboat and stand by it. You won't be waiting long....

The Number of the Beast

There are those who have become so unimpressed by the Obama administration that they are beginning to assign evil to him that he has not actually done.

My philosophy is, if you look closely enough at anyone, you will discover that there are plenty of legitimate reasons for which to despise them, so there is no need to ever enter the realms of imagination or untruth.

Some have begun to assert that Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama is the Antichrist mentioned in the New Testament. Besides the highly unlikely notion that a Muslim could be the Antichrist (!!!), I think this idea lacks evidentiary foundations.

Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys Diss Obama

The world is now officially turned on its ear. The cheese-eating, winebibbing surrender monkeys in Paris are criticizing The Dear Leader, Billy Bob Barry Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama, as ineffectual, weak, and unoriginal.

These are the same surrender monkeys, by the way, whose strategy for dealing with Nazism was "run!" Ineffectual, indeed.

But when the French are busting your chops and calling you a weakling, you very definitely have an image problem. So much for Obama, The Savior Of The World, and The Restorer Of The American Image Abroad.

Charles Bremner, in Britain's Times Online, writes of French President Sarkozy:

Mr Sarkozy is pouring cold water on President Obama's efforts to recast American leadership on the world stage, depicting them as unoriginal, unsubstantial and overrated. Behind leaks and briefings from the Elysée Palace lies Mr Sarkozy's irritation at the rock-star welcome that Europe gave Mr Obama on his Europan tour earlier this month.

The American President's call "to free the world of the menace of a nuclear nightmare" was hot air, Mr Sarkozy's diplomatic staff told him in a report.

The French said that. Hot air. Get it - the FRENCH are saying Barry is full of hot air. Please tell me I am not the only one who sees the irony here.

Bremner continues:

President Sarkozy "... is annoyed by what he sees as the naivety and the herd mentality of the media," said a journalist who is privy to Elysée thinking.

The French think Obama and the Americans he represents are naive. Good to see that the image of America is improving abroad.

Bremner also writes:

According to ... leaks, Mr Sarkozy shamed Mr Obama into intervening: "You were elected to build a new world. Tax havens are the embodiment of the old world," he is quoted as saying. He also reprimanded Mr Obama for setting US goals for climate change that were inferior to Europe's, according to his staff.

Again, according to the Sarkozy version, at the Nato summit in Strasbourg, Mr Obama was meekly yielding to Turkey's refusal to endorse Anders Fogh Rasmussen as the alliance's new Secretary-General. It took pressure from Mr Sarkozy and Chancellor Merkel of Germany to stiffen him up and change his mind, say the French.

Now, bear with me on this one. The European version of the G20 is that Barry Obama was getting pushed around by the French and Germans? I mean, Germany I understand - they probably still have a few SS uniforms in storage. But since when have the French successfully pushed around anybody?

I am thinking around the time of Napoleon?

You know, an adult male is never going to get into a scrape with a brownie scout. Even if you win, what exactly have you proven? And I expect that the pleasure of having survived mortal combat with a brownie scout is soon swallowed by a very real existential crisis in which one begins to question his own manhood.

I can imagine Sarkozy looking himself in the mirror right now and crying - thinking about the man that he once was. "So it has all come to this! Carla! Bring me some cheese and wine! And please, see if Mike Tyson is available - I am having doubts about my masculinity after having so easily abused Barack Hussein Obama."

Strange how that rock-star image doesn't, ummmm, translate well overseas, isn't it? I guess the French have their own rock stars....

See the Bremner story.

More on Bo - The Honest Obama

It is beyond doubt that we often learn the most about people in contexts in which they do not intend for us to be instructed. We learn more about the true character of a man, in other words, when he is not aware we are watching his character, than we learn when he has a chance to play the part of the person he wants us to see him as.

As I have watched and re-watched the video of Bo Obama's press conference [insert both (!) and (???) here], a couple of matters strike me about The Dear Leader.

First, Billy Bob Barry Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama is likely the most radically sanctimonious individual in human history, except for each and every one of his Democratic supporters.

Q: Whose responsibility is it to walk [the dog]?
A: It is all of our responsibility. We take turns walking the dog.

Yes, of course.

A group of important-looking men with expensive briefcases sit at a round table, with Billy Bob Barry Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama the obvious center of their attention. Exhaling strongly - partly from frustration and partly from fear - a nattily-dressed 60-year old soldier with stars on his shoulder rises and intones in a weary voice, "Mr. President, we have pirates in the Indian ocean, a Taliban counteroffensive in Afghanistan, North Korea is pointing a nuclear missle at the West Coast, and French radicals have overrun the Iraqi government."

Nervously glancing at his watch, The Dear Leader apologetically offers, "Sorry guys. I gotta step out for a few, it is time for Bo's 10:15 a.m. constitutional."

But for sheer self-righteousness, nothing beats the the faux earnestness with which Obama pronounces, as if he has just returned from Mt. Sinai, "We want to make sure that we are responsible dog owners, and we hope everyone else is too." And note the tone with which this is said. Pure Reverend Wright.

As if he had just received a new revelation from Jehovah. Or Allah. Or whomever. Way to take a controversial moral stand, Mr. President.

The second matter that I found informative in this video is the whole "tomato section." In this section (beginning at about the 3:00 mark on the below-posted video), Obama notes that Portuguese Water Dogs reportedly have a fondness for the tomato, which apparently places Michelle Obama's garden in imminent danger.

To which Michelle somewhat testily replies, "I don't think we have any tomatoes planted."

Note that, even among the highest strata of those with liberal ambitions, the pretenses of feminism are quickly shed when the actual function of family is involved. The female, no matter how "strong," "independent," and sold on the various feminist (false) dogmas, is simply desiccated and domesticated, relegated to playing second fiddle to the glorious alpha male, who is ultimately the center of the world's attention and who is far too busy with "real work" and is, after all, too important to be expected to keep up with the day-to-day goings-on at home.

All that is, of course, "women's work."

So a century of feminist agitation has changed... nothing.

Press Conference for Poochie

So the Obama family is trooped out to hold a press conference...?

To present a united front in the face of a plague of worldwide piracy? No.

To assure the American people that families can persevere through the downward spiral of Obama's economic policies? No.

To argue that Iran and North Korea should lay off the nukes, "for the children?" Nothing so mundane as all that.

No, this family press conference is about something REALLY important. This press conference is to introduce the dog. A Portuguese Water Buffalo (did I get that wrong?) named "Bo."

Ewwwwwwww. Look at all that slobbering.

Not from Bo. From the press.

He is such an attention whore.

Not the dog, I mean President Obama.

Involuntary Servitude or Pregnancy?

While we are on the subject of lying (see last post), and since I am dying to introduce the subject of weirdness (see this post), it's worth taking a look at Billy Bob Barry Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama's nominee to head the White House's Office of Legal Counsel.

Dawn Johnson, a professor of law at Indiana University and thoroughly unhinged left-wing ideologue, has compared restrictions on abortion to governmental "conscription" of a woman's body.

Further, Johnson denies that, at least vis-a-vis the question of abortion, there is no such thing as a "father" or a "child," there is only a woman's body and a "fetus."

Please don't anyone tell her that "fetus" is the Latin term for "baby."

Johnson says that restrictions on abortion are a violation of the Thirteenth Amendment of the Constitution, which states, in part, "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude... shall exist within the United States...."

Following a recent National Review article by Andrew McCarthy which blew the lid off of Johnson's outlandish theories, Johnson denied having used a Thirteenth Amendment rationale when she had argued before the Supreme Court.

Yet she stated, in that argument, "Statutes that curtail abortion choice are disturbingly suggestive of involuntary servitude, prohibited by the Thirteenth Amendment, in that forced pregnancy requires a woman to provide continuous physical service to the fetus in order to further the state's asserted interest" (emphasis added).

In 1989, Johnson told Glamour magazine, "Any move by courts to force a woman to have a child amounts to involuntary servitude" (emphasis added).

Liars, apparently, attract liars. And socialists, apparently, nominate neurotic women lawyers....

Barack Obama: Yet Another Lying Liberal

So, "The Bow" wasn't really a bow, was it? Billy Bob Barry Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama was merely reaching out to grab some short guy's hand to properly shake it, huh?

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, in a news briefing, had this exchange with reporters:

GIBBS: No, I think he bent over with both to shake -- with both hands to shake his hand, so I don't...

QUESTION: (OFF-MIKE) one hand, that he -- he was just...

GIBBS: Well I -- I -- I -- this is...

QUESTION: Did he bow or didn't he?

GIBBS: No, but I think this meeting was like a week ago, right?

And an anonymous White House told the following: "It wasn't a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he's taller than King Abdullah."


So now the White House is speaking, once again, with the forked tongue and Arkansan accent of our last great Democratic Leader. Which got me thinking about Obama's truthfulness generally.

Of course, people in the know warned that Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama was the most liberal member of the senate when he was running for office. Unfortunately, the folks who voted for him don't understand reality enough to differentiate between "tax and spend" and "rock star," so it really didn't matter. Nevertheless, the striking contrast between the "moderate" pose struck during the campaign and the reality of the first less-than-hundred days is worth noting.

* After the banks have twice been bailed out, Obama's proposed budget contains nearly $750 billion to bail them out once again ( ).

* Obama is proposing nearly $1 trillion dollars in NEW taxes beginning in 2011, with almost $650 BILLION of that falling on individuals, not the hated "corporations" that liberals aspire to destroy ( ).

*Obama ADMITS that his budget would cause a spike in the single-year deficit to unheard-of proportions, escalating the deficit nearly $2 trillion dollars to almost $4 trillion dollars ( ).

* Spending for Fiscal Year 2009 under Obama will be approximately $12,000 for EVERY AMERICAN - not every family - but EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN.

So it should come as no surprise that, like all Democrats, Obama, following in the path blazed by convicted perjurer Bill('sAFool) Clinton, is an inveterate liar.

* After "promising" to withdraw troops from Iraq, The Liar now requests almost $76 billion to extend operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan ( ).

* After flooding radio airwaves during his presidential campaign stating the absurdity that both he and McCain would equally preserve and protect the Second Amendment rights of Americans, The Liar now threatens a (so-called) "assault weapons ban" - realizing full well that "assault weapons" are not "assault weapons" at all, but rather are "scary looking" ( ).

* While admitting that his ridiculous budget proposals will produce increasing deficits for as far as the eye can see, The Liar titles his budget "A NEW ERA OF RESPONSIBILITY" ( ).

* After promising to shut down the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, upon his election, The Liar issued an executive order closing it, EXCEPT that it could be kept open for high-value prisoners "temporarily," and EXCEPT that it might be left open indefinitely ( ).

I am introducing legislation to Congress this week to deny all former Obama voters the privilege of voting until they have read at least one newspaper before the next election.

"Diversity" Is Stupid

I recently dropped by the hospital that my wife works at to have lunch with her. In the cafeteria, there was a big banner strung over the entire length of one of the walls touting the hospital's "Commitment to Diversity." Then there were several terms superimposed over black, white, asian, hispanic, east indian, etc., people which apparently are virtues that I am supposed to associate with the concept of "Diversity": opportunity, fairness, perspective... blah blah blah.

Sitting there, I tried to contain both my rage and the incomprehensible desire to spew food in 97 different directions while laughing. I tried to put myself in the place of the person who has just hacked off his left arm with a chainsaw, being wheeled into the emergency room, and being fitted with various IV drips, bandages, and being prepped to avoid shock.

I then imagine that he turns to whomever seems to be in charge and says, "Now, of course, there will be a female doctor working on me, correct? And your hospital does have the proper balance on its nursing staff between blacks, asians, caucasians, and east indians, correct? I mean, we both know that what is important here is that your hospital extend equal opportunity to the community - an impossibility without a properly diverse staff. And I wouldn't want my treatment skewed by having only those with a WASPy, Western perspective working on me...."

It's a hospital. There is only one thing that matters: technical skill in saving and preserving life.

Like the NBA, for instance, where the only issue is putting the round ball in the proper hole. I notice that nobody is agitating for affirmative action for midget Jews or Asian women in the NBA, are they?

Then I woke up this morning and got a gander at Washington Mutual's final press release, before being bought out of its insolvency by a more responsible bank:

WaMu Recognized as Top Diverse Employer—Again

Company ranks in top ten of Hispanic Business’ Diversity Elite and earns perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index

SEATTLE, WA (September 24, 2008) – Washington Mutual, Inc. (NYSE:WM), one of the nation’s leading banks for consumers and small businesses, has once again been recognized as a top employer by Hispanic Business magazine and the Human Rights Campaign.

Hispanic Business magazine recently ranked WaMu sixth in its annual Diversity Elite list, which names the top 60 companies for Hispanics. The company was honored specifically for its efforts to recruit Hispanic employees, reach out to Hispanic consumers and support Hispanic communities and organizations.

The Human Rights Campaign, the largest national gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) civil rights organization, also awarded WaMu its second consecutive 100 percent score in the organization’s 2009 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), which measures progress in attaining equal rights for GLBT employees and consumers. WaMu joins the ranks of 259 other major U.S. businesses that also received top marks in the annual survey. The CEI rated a total of 583 businesses on GLBT-related policies and practices, including non-discrimination policies and domestic partner benefits.

In both surveys, WaMu earned points for competitive diversity policies and programs, including the recently established Latino, African American and GLBT employee network groups, all of which have a corporate executive sponsor and champion.

“Diversity is an integral part of cultivating a welcoming, innovative and dynamic workplace here at WaMu. We are proud to be recognized for the opportunities and benefits we offer to all of our employees, including the specific efforts we have made to engage Hispanics and the GLBT community,” said Steve Rotella, WaMu president and COO. “We are committed to diversity at WaMu and pledge to listen to our customers and work closely with our employees to continue to make progress.”

These two recent honors build upon diversity recognitions WaMu received earlier in 2008. WaMu was named one of 25 Noteworthy Companies by Diversity Inc magazine and one of the Top 50 Corporations for Supplier Diversity by Hispanic Enterprise magazine.
Perhaps if the execs at Washington Mutual had been paying more attention to running a tight ship and balancing their books and making loans to creditworthy clients, it might continue to exist as an independent bank today.

Lesson for the Day: You can either be one of the "25 Noteworthy Companies by Diversity Inc. magazine" or you can be solvent. You choose. While WaMu was "winning points for competitive diversity policies and programs" it was bleeding red ink all over its ledgers. Perhaps if WaMu had been less "sensitive" to minorities of every kind, and more watchful of its loan recipients, it would not be a part of J.P. Morgan as we speak.

Only in America, where a nonentity such as Oprah Winfrey becomes wealthy and widely-respected, could people really believe that "a variety of perspectives" and "reaching out to the Gay, Lesbian, Transgendered, and Bisexual communities" is more important than maintaining solvency.

Welcome to George Orwell's 1984. And welcome to Axl Rose's Jungle.

Financial Fun

1) The initial PROPOSED tab for the governmental bailout of the economy, estimated at $4.6165 trillion (don't you love the four-decimal point specificity? rumor has it that the point-one-six-five trillion was to account for low-income Netflix and lunch money programs....), was a higher total than the total cost of the New Deal, the Louisiana Purchase, the Marshall Plan, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the War in Iraq, the Savings and Loan Crisis, and every NASA project in history - including research.

2) The eventual ACTUAL tab (actual meaning "the frivolous figure passed in Congressional bills which will be endlessly quoted in soundbytes," which is not to be confused with the ACTUAL ACTUAL tab, meaning "the actual amount of money spent, discoverable only after various programs for low-income Netflix financing and teapot museum-construction have been renewed innumerable times, which will likely approach $20 trillion, but that is another story for another day) for the economic bailout, estimated at $7.76 trillion, is a higher total than the total cost of the New Deal, the Louisiana Purchase, the Marshall Plan, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the War in Iraq, the Savings and Loan Crisis and every NASA project in history - including research, PLUS the entire cost of the Second World War AND the cost of dry-cleaning Monica Lewinksy's dresses.

3) Susan Collins (RINO - Maine) insisted that the stimulus bill be pared back from $838 billion dollars to a mere $780+ billion. Why? To ensure that Congress and the President were behaving in a "financially responsible" manner. Uh-huh. Shaving off that extra $50 billion sure did help, chickie! I mean, $780 billion is a lot, but $838 billion is SERIOUS money!

4) The Bailout Bill, which was supposed to rescue the homeowners of America, had it merely been applied to mortgages rather than new governmental programs, would have paid off IN THEIR ENTIRETY more than 90% of all outstanding American residential mortgages ( ).

5) The Bailout Bill, which was supposed to rescue the homeowners of America, was followed up by TODAY's announcement by Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama that we have a NEW $275 billion (as of today) plan to rescue America's homeowners (no, wait, we are serious this time. really. no joking. stop laughing. i'm serious.).

Hooray! The Bailout Worked!

"Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished, but he that gathereth by labor shall increase"
(Proverbs 13:11, King James Version).

"Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time" (Proverbs 13:11, New Living Translation).

Yet more evidence that welfare, corporate or otherwise, is a great idea that has a positive economic impact:

From CNBC reports by journalist David Faber --

American Insurance Group, the insurance giant that is 80-percent owned by the US government, is in discussions with the government to secure additional funds so it can keep operating after next Monday, when it will report the largest loss in U.S. corporate history, CNBC has learned.

Sources close to the company said the loss will be near $60 billion due to writedowns on a variety of assets including commercial real estate.

That massive loss is likely to spur downgrades in its insurance and credit ratings that will force AIG to raise collateral that it doesn't have.

In addition, if AIG's book value falls below a certain level, as it seems certain to do, it will trigger default in certain of its debt instruments, say people familiar with the situation.

All of this adds up to a huge headache for the Federal Reserve and Treasury, which have already provided over $150 billion of assistance to AIG.

Full article at .

David Faber has been on CNBC asking: "Where did we go wrong? Should we just have done nothing and accepted the pain rather than throwing good money after bad?"

Good question. Or maybe he was making a point. Good point.

Turkish Reporter Mocks Obama in Blackface

Apparently traveling overseas with one's hat in one's hand and insulting your own country in a misguided attempt to curry favor with the subjects of a foreign land, is not a very effective way of gaining respect. Appeasement has a bad historical record, according to some guy named Neville Chamberlain....

This Turkish reporter mocks Barack Obama by delivering the news in blackface.

Where are all the American Poverty Pimps and Race Whores complaining about this one?

Lesson: If you engage in principled opposition to a black liberal in America, you are a racist, though your disagreements center only on ideas and have nothing to do with skin color. But if you are a foreigner (especially a Muslim!) who paints his face in mockery of a black US president, liberals will be glad to overlook it.

After all, to criticize their actions would be so Eurocentric and would demonstrate a lack of tolerance. We need to learn to appreciate the expression of thought from other nations, don't we, O ye liberals? Multiculturalism, man!

Barack Obama: Foreign Policy Genius

On the day after Billy Bob Barry Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama was elected, I noted that the world - and the United States in particular - would be less safe because of his election.

I stated that in this blog entry: .

Obama's lack of a realistic vision of human nature, especially as such a vision translates into an effective foreign policy, guarantees that there will be more terrorist attacks on Americans and that foreign policy interests will suffer.

George H. W. Bush, and his son Dubya, while constantly criticized by the neurotic left, actually managed to secure significant cooperation from foreign governments in their foreign policy excursions. I still remember the utter surprise I felt when I learned that the Saudi Arabian government was cooperating with the U.S. in the Iraq operation. And of course, George W. managed to get nearly worldwide cooperation for both the actions in Iraq and in Afghanistan - even from the likes of the French and the Japanese.

Obama set as a core goal of his G20 trip to gain commitments from current allies to send more of their troops into Afghanistan.

As everything involving foreign policy for Obama - from his Russian "easy button" to the G20 itself - he was an utter and complete failure.

Our closest allies, the British, committed to send 700 additional troops - but only for the time surrounding upcoming elections in Afghanistan. Obama had sought in excess of 1,000 troops with a commitment to much longer involvement.

Other than that, only the Belgians and Spanish are sending troops. The Belgians will send 35 "trainers," and the Spanish will send 12. Yes, you read that right - 47 new troops combined from those two countries.

Story here: .

And every other country flatly turned Obama down.

This whole alliance-building thing is a lot harder than it appears from the ivory tower of a law school, isn't it Skippy?... errrrrr, I mean Mr. Obama?

And apparently it takes much more than petulant scolding to have an effect on the psychopaths in North Korea. After Obama smarmily reminded the Communists that North Korea's unwillingness to be properly put in their place by his "warnings" was precisely the type of behavior "that has led to North Korea's isolation in the international community for a long time" on April 3, Pyongyang launched a test missle over Japan on April 5.

Story here: .

Billy Bob Barry Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama is the proverbial dog chasing the bus. Now that he has caught the bus, he doesn't know what to do with it.

I am sure there are some foreign powers who rejoice, even as we watch these events unfold, that Americans do not have a baseline expectation of competence in their chief executives any longer....

Barack Obama: Too Much Spending for Democrats!

Now the Obama administration is stacking chits and keeping score against DEMOCRATIC opposition to his spending-free-as-water ways.

Apparently, Billy Bob Barry Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama is too radical a socialist even for DEMOCRATS at this point.

[The Obama Administration's} targets were initially Republicans, as team Obama ran ads depicting the GOP as the "party of no." But now the fire is being trained on Democrats worried about runaway spending.

Americans United is going after Democrats who are skeptical of Mr. Obama's plans to double the national debt in five years and nearly triple it in 10. The White House is taking aim at lawmakers in 12 states, including Democratic Sens. Kent Conrad, Ben Nelson, Mary Landrieu, Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor. MoveOn.Org is running ads aimed at 10 moderate Senate and House Democrats. And robocalls are urging voters in key districts to pressure their congressman to get in line.

Barack Obama: Ghetto Fabulous

There is a type of populism that is admirable. Think of Thomas Jefferson answering the door of the White House himself. And in his bathrobe.

But then there is a type of cluelessness born of being firmly rooted in the lower classes, no matter how much wealth and power one may amass.

And Barack Obama is one of the most classless individuals on the planet, for shizzle.

When the leaders of two countries meet for the first time, it is customary for them to exchange gifts with one another. Generally, the gifts are simple, classy, and unique expressions of some aspect of the home country's culture or history. Think of a bottle of wine from France, or something containing a small diamond from South Africa.

When Barack Obama met English Prime Minister Gordon Brown for the first time in the White House, Brown brought him an exquisite carved ornamental pen holder from the planks of the English anti-slavery ship, HMS Gannet. Simple. Exquisite. Unique. Meaningful. Reservedly English.

In return, Barack Obama offered to Prime Minister Brown a sack of 25 DVDs. Now wait - good DVDs. Psycho was one of them. Star Wars.

As of today, more than 2,000 letters of apology from U.S. citizens have been received by the English government.

Brown's gift? Exquisite. Meaningful. Obama's gift? Wal-Mart. Trailer park. Ghetto.

To make matters worse, Obama seems blissfully ignorant that DVDs are regionally coded, to make it impossible for new DVD releases to be mass-released overseas while the movies themselves are still in theaters in foreign countries. So the DVDs given by Obama are not even capable of being played in England.

Ghetto fabulous.

See the article in the Christian Science Monitor here: .

So this week Obama meets the Queen of England for the first time. Again, a traditional gift is presented to her. She is, after all, the Queen.

Obama's gift? An ipod.

An ipod filled with his own speeches. Yes, Barack Obama's speeches.

I'm not kidding

See it here: .

And to make matters worse, the Queen already owned an ipod.

So I think I can anticipate Billy Bob Barry Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama's re-election slogan: VOTE FOR ME. I'M GHETTO FABULOUS.

Is there any place to hide from this lower class buffoon?

Promises, Promises

That Democrats have their own, unique (read: "special") definition of what "keeping one's campaign promises" means is obvious. Who can forget George Stephanopoulis' statement that Billy Bob "Floral Oral" Clinton "kept all of his promises that he intended to keep"?

Billy Bob Barry Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama seems to be of the same philosophy on campaign promises. Let's see - I promise to close Gitmo, NOT! I promise to bring the troops home, NOT! And now, I promise to not raise taxes on the middle class., PSYCH!

From an AP wire report:

WASHINGTON (AP) - One of President Barack Obama's campaign pledges on taxes went up in puffs of smoke Wednesday.

The largest increase in tobacco taxes took effect despite Obama's promise not to raise taxes of any kind on families earning under $250,000 or individuals under $200,000.

This is one tax that disproportionately affects the poor, who are more likely to smoke than the rich.

( )

Somebody wanna start explaining to me the concept of the "Lyin' Messiah" now?

More Obamazombie Stupidity

The unthinking masses, those who believe that Oprah is a legitimate source of morality, and those that actually think that The Daily Show is a news source - in short, the Obamazombies, are now out in force defending their Messiah with their agile mental midgetry.

In the face of the foverwhelming evidence demonstrating that Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama is in fact 1) a liar and 2) incompetent, the Obamazombie Club (decoder ring in every fourth box of Ghetto Fabulous Sugar Smacks) is amassing its forces to come to the rescue of its cowardly cult leader.

Now, never expect an Obamazombie to engage you on the facts concerning The One. Of course, they never knew any facts about him when they decided to support him. They never knew any facts because there were no facts - Barack Obama holds the singular distinction of being the only man to ever have penned an autobiography without having first bothered to accomplish anything - rather, the Obamazombie supports The One because of some special spiritual insight obtained by their existence upon a higher spiritual plane than us wee commoners. Well, either that or too many anchovies after 8 pm, or maybe that peculiar diagnosis that they take the Xanex for... but why are we trying to figure out HOW the Obamazombie discovered The Truth about The One. The fact is that they DID discover it!

Now, let's take a look at the rhetorical flair of the Obamazombie when s/he is confronted with the facts about The (Other) Messiah.

1) It's all Bush's fault. This is a peculiar argument (peculiarity being a distinguishing trait of the Obamazombie), since the salient factors which have brought about the current economic melee both preceded Bush's tenure in office, and followed it.

The simplistic thinking of the simpleton liberal left is thoroughly revealed in its engagement in the philosophical error known as post hoc, propter hoc, which loosely translated means that "Since it followed, it was caused by." Since the mortgage meltdown and economic troubles (roughly) followed eight years of George W. Bush, then certainly Bush must have caused the whole mess. By this same type of meager excursion into attempted adult thinking, Obamazombies would determine that because Summer follows Winter, it is thereby caused by Winter.

However, even the surface logic of the Obamazombie reveals more than a touch of "Once upon a time, in a land far away...." Because the specific problems that led to the economic meltdown are only tangentially related to the Bush administration - i.e., such was the law when Bush came into office. But rather, the stupendous (or, in the Democrats' case, "stupindous") error which led to the meltdown was an initiative crafted at the hands of one Billy Bob Clinton, and various Democrats (particularly the Congressional Black Caucus) "empowered" by his oral fixations in the mid- and late-nineties.

It was, in fact, a Clinton intitiative (no doubt a part of his being our nation's "First Black President") to "reach out" to minorities who could not afford to own their own homes by demanding that they, in fact, be given access to mortgages. That there was a causal connection between someone not having a mortgage and their not being able to pay a mortgage was, of course, incidental to the thinking of the Clintonistas and their Fascist-Democratic friends - after all, ability or merit has never entered into the calculation when a bunch of socialists sit down and begin to plot how to redistribute wealth!

Nevertheless, as the great evangelist was known for preaching, there comes "Payday Someday," and that payday began to come due at the end of the Bush administration. Somehow, often through SECOND mortgages taken out to sustain the first, those who were unable to pay their mortgage had floated along, but when no more money could be lent to those who obtained mortgages only by the temper tantrums of the Congressional Black Caucus, the mortgage system failed and a domino effect ensued.

So the primary problem - that of the entire banking system faltering on its foundation - was not related to Bush at all, except as he inherited banking regulations authored by Democrats and Billy Bob "Floral Oral" Clinton which demanded unwise behavior by bankers.

All of this is documented here: .

What about the secondary problem?

Well, the secondary problem in all of this mess is how Dorkus Maximus, otherwise known as Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama, has decided to respond to the problem that he and his Socialist Komrades have caused, supported, and/or pushed over the years.

I have an idea, he seems to say. Let's respond to a bunch of money that has been borrowed which folks are now unable to repay by borrowing a bunch of money that there is no hope that anyone will ever repay.

As I have so eloquently stated previously (see ), the spending spree... errrrrrr, economic bailout now totals essenitally the amount of the Gross Domestic Product. As I have so eloquently additionally stated, the vast majority of all deficit spending done in all 200+ years of American history (see the same above-referenced blog entry) has occurred during the first less than 100 days of the Obama administration. These are facts that are undeniable, even to the morally and mentally challenged Obamazombies.

Now, because Obamazombies are ignorami (that is the plural of ignoramus, for those of you Obamazombies who went to public school), they do not understand that Obama is not the first U.S. president to have taken office during an economic crisis. Of course, Obamazombies do not understand ANYTHING, but that is beside the point. Both Kennedy and Reagan faced turbulent economic times and responded by cutting taxes - which forthwith produced a measure of economic health. Nixon and Carter, of course, responded with hiking taxes and spending simultaneously (the Obama plan) and turned a bad economy worse.

Even George W., inheriting an economic slowdown begun under Clinton (because of his massive spending increases) and exacerbated by 9/11, responded by cutting taxes and providing business stimulus and brought the economy back to health even after the catastrophe that could have been due to the terrorist attacks. Bush responded appropriately and wisely to a far greater potential catastrophe than Obama inherited.

So, the real problem is not what Obama inherited, it is what he has done since he inherited it - which is to say that he has (thus far) responded like Karl Marx on crack. He took a $4 trillion deficit accumulated over 200 years of American history and added nearly $5 trillion to it in his first less than 100 days.

So as those who are capable of sound logic (yes, I know Obamazombies, they don't teach that in public schools anymore do they?) can clearly see, the economic meltdown was CAUSED by Democrats and IS BEING EXACERBATED by Obama.

2) Everything anybody says that is negative about Obama is B.S. See discussion above. Note that historical facts are cited. Note that websites with voluminous amounts of information are provided. Can you produce counterevidence? Are you arguing that the facts are NOT as stated? Can you provide proof and a cogent argument to that effect?

I know, I know, the public schools don't teach the word "cogent" anymore. Look it up.

3) I choose to believe in Obama. Yes, and Obama chooses to believe in Fascism. And the six-year old next door chooses to believe in fairys.

The facts are pretty clear, though.

Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama is not up to the job. He is at best a liar and an incompetent. At worse, he intends to do damage to the United States so that he may remold it in the image of his own radicalism.

So Now We Know What Hope and Change Means!

What happens when you take a committed socialist with no experience in governance, who has never so much as held a legitimate adult job (and yes, I know he taught law, and having graduated from law school, I utterly deny that being a law professor is an adult job), who is full of style and resentment but utterly lacks substance and wisdom, and make him president?

In March, nearly 750,000 jobs were lost and the government "rescue" of the economy is almost equivalent to the yearly Gross Domestic Product at $12.8 trillion (see and ).

Welcome to the nightmare.

Barack Obama is dishonest and incompetent at best. At worst, those folks who maintain that he actually has a strategy to run the nation into the ground in order to do away with Constitutional government may actually be on to something.

During the campaign, it was a cute (though legitimate) recurring theme for those of us who knew Obama wasn't quite up to the job to ask his brain-dead cultlike following, "What does Hope and/or Change mean exactly?" One may look back in my own blogs here on thoughts and note that numerous times I referenced this question. Of course, no genuine answer ever came. Variations on this theme included asking the zombie left, between the gutteral moans accompanying their Obamagasms, "Exactly which position of Obama's do you agree with?" Well, of course, since Obama never actually took a position (other than the fifth-grade essay variety: "War bad, Peace good!"), no answers were ever forthcoming on that question either.

Well, now we know.

The Change promised by Obama includes the surrender of all fiscal responsiblity. Obama has increased the public debt of the United States by more in his first less-than-hundred-days than any other president in the history of the United States - and more than all of them combined. The cumulative federal deficit for the United States, as accumulated over more than 200 years of history, was $4.4 trillion when Obama took office. In less than 100 days in office, Obama has already proposed $4.8 trillion in deficit spending. Yet he continues to promise that the federal budget deficit will be halved by the end of his first term. Yeah, right. And Gitmo is closing and the soldiers in Iraq are coming home, right?

The Hope promised by Obama, then, certainly involves the ethereal hope that somebody, someday, may be able to pay all this fiat money back.

The Change promised by Obama includes the end of American leadership in the world economy. Again, before Obama's first 100 days had ended, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was reduced to panhandling on the streets of Beijing - showing up at an economic meeting in China and, with hat in hand and trained monkey dancing, begging the Chinese not to stop investing in American government paper. "After all," she crooned, "we really need your money, and if we go down, you guys will lose everything you have already invested!" A stunning argument, sure to go down in the annals of rhetoric as one of the great appeals in all of human history.

The Chinese responded by proposing a new worldwide currency administered by the International Monetary Fund that would relieve them of the need of the American greenback entirely.

So the Hope promised by Obama likely involves the ephemeral wish that perhaps somebody other than the Chinese will start lending us money so that we can fund Obama's federal shopping spree.

The Change promised by Obama includes the end of the private sector's freedom from governmental intervention. Yes, the federal government, the same people who brought you such marvels of efficiency and service as the Post Office, is now going to make the rules for private businesses.

Remember that the very mortgage schemes that firms such as Countrywide mastered to their own detriment were originally dreamed up by Democrats and the Clinton administration in an attempt to get people into houses who could not afford the mortgages for those houses. Who saw a mortgage problem coming when you lent mortgage money to people who could not repay it? (Hint: Democrats) Now, dressed in his Super Socialist red cape, Obama rushes in and says, "The pound of flesh that I exact from the firms who did exactly what we Democrats demanded that they do, and now need governmental rescuing because of it, is that I, Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama, the Super Socialist, will now be making decisions on how to run these private companies. I will be making decisions on wage issues (so you guys over there give back those contractual bonuses!) and I will be making hiring decisions (so the head of GM is now summarily fired without Due Process of law).

So apparently the Hope promised by Obama involves the wispy notion that the federal government, who cannot adequately deliver mail or make laws without melting down the mortgage industry, is going to be able to directly run multinational organizations like AIG and GM better than people who actually have money to make or lose based on performance.

And this is killer: because Obama has so royally screwed matters up in less than 100 days in office, now the government has a hyperfemme help-me-emote website that will, I suppose, offer governmental subsidies for facial tissues since I can't stop crying as I look at the whole world collapsing under Obama's gentle and incompetent tutelage. The essence of Obamazombie hope is crystallized in the new Nanny State website, "Getting Through Tough Economic Times" at Note to self: there is a better way to get through tough economic times, and it is a proven success - ELECT REAGAN.

Finally, the Change promised by Obama includes such a headlong, trainwreck, rush into socialism that even Eurosocialists are frightened by America's descent into Marxism. Who ever thought we would see the day when the Swedes and the French would helpfully offer advice to America: "Perhaps you need to slow down on your socialist scheming?" Who ever thought that the economy of the United States could be so poorly managed - in a mere 100 days or less at that! - that the Chinese Communists would begin to lecture us on fiscal responsibility?

The real Hope? I hope the next two years goes quickly.... Vote Republican in 2010.

And I hope that a law will soon be passed taking the privilege of voting away from the brain-dead buffoons who voted for Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama. They've done enough damage already.
