Day 19 -- Waiting for Barry to Punish Terror

Number of days since Barack Obama said this about the Libyan terrorist attack, torture and murder of an ambassador and three US citizens:

“I want people around the world to hear me: To all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished,” he said.


Number of days this act of terror has gone unpunished:


Guess we're too busy trying to throw our national intelligence director under the bus while we cover up the fact that we KNEW this was a terror attack all along to actually PUNISH the terror attack.

Take Out the Poll Biases and Romney's Ahead

Did you hear? The 2012 election is over and Barack Obama won. At least that's the impression you would get if you landed on this planet yesterday and turned on the ObamaBot Zombie media.

The Middle East is in meltdown; maybe if the liberal's messiah ignores it long enough, it will go away. Kind of like Barry wishes Iran would just go away and stop threatening us and our greatest ally -- you know, the one whose prime minister Barry refuses to meet with.

Did you know the net increase in jobs during to Obama presidency is -1.3 million? (Yes that's MINUS.) Or that per capita household income is down 8% since Barry took office? I suspect most of you know that Barry's master plan that :"energy prices will necessarily skyrocket" is well underway. Can you imagine how the ObamaBot leftist media would be dogging GW Bush if gas prices doubled during his presidency? Oh wait, they did and it did. But do you remember all the praise they heaped on him when his policies helped slash gas prices by 200% in the waning days of his presidency? You don't because it didn't happen. But nary a word about Barry's culpability for the sky-high gas prices of today.

Yes for the last three and a half years, we've had the most pathetic presidency in modern history -- nothing has gone right except for Barack Obama's "fundamental transformation" of our country from a strong one into to a weak one.

Given all this, you would think Scott Pelley would have something more important to lead his CBS (emphasis on "BS") Friday night newscast with than the made-up story that Mitt Romney's presidential campaign needs to be "revived". But the ObamaBot Zombie media has their narrative and nothing will distract them from their duty to make everyone think our country is in the middle of a miraculous recovery and Mitt Romney's campaign is on the ropes.

Which brings us to the polls the leftist media routinely manipulate to make all of us think that there is no sense in Mitt and Paul even trying to win because it's useless -- based on the polls, Barry's popularity is skyrocketing and according to some, one party dictatorship would be fantastic -- amazingly some polls are showing that a majority of Americans think one-party rule would be just terrific. Ask Cubans what they think of one-party rule in Cuba.

The Lies Just Keep Coming ...

This time it's Joe Biden in the role of Pinocchio instead of his usual role as Bozo:
Biden: [Barry the Great]“Has done more for Israel’s physical security than any President of the eight I’ve served with.” (clapping)
I mean if this just isn't the whopper to end all whoppers. This administration IGNORES Israel even as it's prime minister begs for a meeting with the president and repeatedly asserts that in the absence of US assistance, Israel may have to act on it's own to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. Barry pussyfoots around on the issue of Iran and nukes while every other word out of the smelly Iranian president's mouth references either nuking Israel, killing all it's people or death to America or all three at the same time.

Meanwhile back at the White House, Barry's busy schedule keeps him from meeting face to face with Benjamin Netanyahu because he's to busy meeting with David Letterman, the old boobs on The View and the Pimp with a Limp. And of course, he never misses a beat out on the campaign trail flying around the country on our dime even as our ambassador is killed in Libya, his consulate is burned to the ground and one of the brave Marines trapped with him chronicles their demise on Twitter. This was "just a bump in the road". As apparently, will be the destruction of Israel. And Biden is now asserting that Barry has done more to support Israel than any of the past eight presidents! The lies are brash, bold and in your face. And if the majority of us are stupid enough to believe the thousands being told by Barry and his minions, we unfortunately deserve another Obama term

Meanwhile, a tepid response from our candidate (of course I haven't heard video of this like I have Bozo's remarks so it may have more context than is presented here):

Mitt Romney in Wayne, Pennsylvania:
Romney: “I sure as heck don’t consider Iran becoming nuclear a bump in the road. We need someone who recognizes the seriousness of what’s ahead and is willing to lead.” (cheers)

Here's a suggestion Mitt: Make sure you stress that this president is the weakest president in modern US history and all of our lives are endangered by it:

 The safest we have ever been in this country in the late-20th and early 21st centuries was in the 80s when we were strong and every rogue nation knew that we would back up our talk with action. Ironically, for most of the 80's all we had to do is talk because the fact that we were willing to back up our talk with action kept things quiet.

Our enemies know we are weak, they know this administration mirrors a third-world dictatorship in it's dishonesty and corruption and they are taking full advantage of it. If this corrupt, third-world style thug is re-elected and Iran wipes Israel off the map, will anyone remember Joe Biden's lies?

Please Mr. Obama, Can You Spare a Pill (or a Rubber)?

Seriously? Is this what we are reduced to? A bunch of commie pinko lefty women who buy the canard that Republicans want to keep them barefoot and pregnant. Meanwhile, they worship a president who defines ALL women by their vaginas and thinks all they care about is a presidential ticket that can provide freebies that cater to their reproductive organs.

I thought this was some silly joke when I first saw it. But on closer inspection, the picture above is actually a communication by a bunch of barefoot and pregnant ObamaBot Zombie women -- or barefoot and fresh from the abortion clinic where they received their "reproductive health services" -- to American women everywhere to attempt to convince them that the most important issue in their lives should be whether or not they receive overpriced birth control free of charge from the taxpayer. Apparently these idiots are counting on everyone else to be as stupid as they are and not realize that you can get a pack of birth control pills for less than ten bucks a month at the local Wal Mart.  But forget the facts and logic, these militant Zombies want women everywhere to believe that, like Julia, the heroine of their web site, the once and fallen messiah's policies will take care of them from cradle to grave.

With real unemployment at 14+%, real inflation rampant, gas prices at record highs and double what they were when Barry took office, the national debt larger than the annual cost of all goods and services produced in this country and projected to rise past $20 trillion should we re-elect Barry and Bozo, I'm willing to bet that most women will see past this shameless pandering to their vaginas and help the men in their lives vote Barry's sorry ass out of office in a little over a month.

The Voter Fraud Season Begins

Yes, today was the beginning of the cheatin' season in Iowa -- that period weeks and weeks before the election when you can walk in to various locations -- usually surrounded by Barack Obama bumper stickers and lefty loons -- and vote:

The first day of early voting in Polk County was busier than ever for election staff.
By 4 p.m., 550 people had cast ballots at the Polk County Election Office. In 2008, 100 people voted on the first day but that number had been far eclipsed by 11 a.m.
Of those, 401 were registered Democrats, 90 were Republicans, 57 had no party affiliation and two were affiliated with other parties, said Polk County Auditor Jamie Fitzgerald.
He could not say who people had actually voted for.
After an initial two-hour rush when the polls opened at 8 a.m. that led to hour-long wait times and was largely a function of Obama campaign efforts, the office saw a steady stream of people throughout the day, Fitzgerald said.
 Original story:
The first ballots are in, and judging from the myriad of Obama stickers, buttons, signs and campaign volunteers enthusiastically trawling down the line in front of the election office, in Polk County most of the ballots so far were for President Barack Obama.
Why is this primarily a Democrat phenomenon? Because early voting it the perfect set up for voter fraud. When you can vote in every imaginable building from a frat house to a Mexican restaurant, the logistics of safely and securely getting ballots from all these locations to the county auditor's office present nearly unlimited opportunities for voter fraud. And Democrats are the kings of voter fraud -- rampant voter fraud is essential to the Democrat machine if they want to win and it's been happening for decades.

Young Conservative Mayor Recieves Racist Threats

Surprise, surprise: Mia Love, the young conservative, Black mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, who is running for congress is receiving racists threats:

SARATOGA SPRINGS — A packet of information sent to Mayor Mia Love's office that city officials described as racist launched a police investigation Tuesday.
City Manager Mark Christensen described the contents of the thick envelope as "disturbing" and "pretty creepy stuff." He said it included a picture of Love and her husband, Jason, and a hooded Ku Klux Klan character. There also were pictures of aborted fetuses, he said.
"I couldn't tell if it was threatening or anything. It kind of shocked me, what I saw," he said.
Christensen said the city has received others mailings aimed at Love but nothing like the one that arrived Tuesday. He said he turned it over to the police department.
How much do you want to bet that this envelope was sent by a "tolerant" leftist partisan hack?

Funny how this story is nowhere to be found on mainstream leftist media web sites. Can you imagine if a liberal Black congressional candidate were receiving mailed-in threats? THAT might be enough to kick the bogus "Romney's bad week" stories off the front pages of papers everywhere.

Even the Liberal Media has to Admit Barry's a Damn Liar on the National Debt

Barry the Great's claim that only 10% of the $6 trillion in national debt run up on his watch is attributable to him is absurd on its face. But when liberal media "fact checkers" give him their worst rating for deception, you know he's a damn liar:

“Over the last four years, the deficit has gone up, but 90 percent of that is as a consequence of two wars that weren’t paid for, as a consequence of tax cuts that weren’t paid for, a prescription drug plan that was not paid for, and then the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Now we took some emergency actions, but that accounts for about 10 percent of this increase in the deficit, and we have actually seen the federal government grow at a slower pace than at any time since Dwight Eisenhower, in fact, substantially lower than the federal government grew under either Ronald Reagan or George Bush.”
“Taxes are lower on families than they’ve been probably in the last 50 years. So I haven’t raised taxes.”
— President Obama, interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” recorded on Sept. 12, 2012, and aired on Sept. 23

So it's the old "blame Bush" canard. And even the Washington Post admits this is a lie.

Even more telling is this: "Fact-checkers" these days are like pollsters -- you can "check" your facts to support or debunk any assertion you want. So when even Obama's "fact-checkers" can't spin their "fact-checking" in his favor, you know it's super bad.

The "fact-checker" tries to go to great lengths to convince us that he has done a torturous, meticulous analysis of the "facts" and attributes 44% of the $6 trillion to Barry. But even this falls short. Because the actual facts are that the 2007 deficit (pre-Democrat Community Reinvestment Act-induced economic collapse in 2008) was a mere $161 billion. Even the 2008 deficit with GW's ill-conceived $800 billion "stimulus" was $459 billion. Which means, all tortured analysis aside, Obama is responsible for $5.5 trillion in debt in his three and a half years in office. Any other president but the once and fallen messiah would have been stoned to death for running multi-year $1.5 trillion deficits.

The fact that the leftist media occasionally gets it right (or at least 50% right) isn't particularly surprising: The liberal media has to demonstrate some tiny semblance of impartiality by producing an occasional story critical of Barry the Great to have even the tiniest modicum of credibility. Too bad they can't find it in themselves to pair this "fact check" with a 2009 video clip of Obama's promise to "cut the deficit we inherited in half in my first term":. Now that would be a REAL fact check.

Introducing Honorary NFL Commissioner and Celebrity in Chief Barack Hussein Obama!

Move over, Roger Goodell, Barry wants your job:

"I've got to tell you, I don't like the idea of a quarterback controversy at the start of a season," Obama told WNBS in Ohio. "If I were a Jets fan, I'd be pretty nervous. Sanchez is not Tom Brady yet, but he led them to the playoffs two years in a row. I think Tim Tebow seems to be a wonderful young man and he's got just a great, winning attitude … but there's going to be a lot of tension in that situation."
Of course Barry had an opinion on the NFL replacement refs as well:

(CNN) – Even the president is ready for the replacement refs to go.
On Twitter Tuesday, President Barack Obama wrote:

NFL fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs' lockout is settled soon. -bo
Perhaps he doesn't want Goodell's job, maybe he wants a starting QB job:

When he wasn't opining about the NFL, Barry the First Celebrity was pretending to be a serious, intelligent guy on a non-serious, unintelligent show featuring a bunch of old boobs -- literally and figuratively (with one notable conservative exception):

Barry can't be bothered to meet with Benjamin Netanyahu to talk about the fact that the smelly psycho from Iran threatens Israel and the U.S. every time he opens his mouth -- he's too "busy". His spokesidiots say, he doesn't need to meet one on one with world leaders at the United Nations summit this week -- he'll see them at receptions.

He can make the call on dueling quarterbacks, replacement refs, basketball pools, etc. but he can't bring himself to call terror attacks terror attacks and all he has to say about acts of war, murder and rape committed on our sovereign territory in Libya is that he "condemns" it "in the strongest terms".

This moron is so out of touch, he can't even give David Letterman an accurate ballpark figure on the national debt.

What does this all add up to? The hard-core leftist's favorite president loves the power, prestige and accoutrements of the office; he loves the celebrity and he loves having a bully pulpit from which to preach and institute his hard-core leftist agenda. But he doesn't like doing the job and he does the job crappily. He's a non-serious jackass and we need to kick him out of office in November.

AE Teamsters Wise Up and Go Back to Work

Anderson Erickson's strategy of playing hardball with a bunch of ungrateful employees and their union thug puppet masters worked: The well-paid workers are suspending their strike:

DES MOINES, Iowa — About 300 workers at Anderson Erickson Dairy in Des Moines will return to work despite a vote by the local Teamsters Union to not accept the company's latest contract offer.

A strike began early Monday morning after workers rejected the proposal the night before, but the strike was suspended Monday night to allow negotiations to continue.

Mike Klootwyk, the vice president of Teamsters Union Local 120, said the latest proposed contract would have required workers to accept a pay freeze and to pay significantly more for health care insurance.

Several dozen picketers with "On Strike" signs walked around the dairy's building on the city's east side earlier on Monday.

The previous four-year contract expired in March.
What does this prove? This proves that the well-paid but ungrateful AE workers are smart and that the overpaid, under performing union reps like the $128,000 man cited above, are worthless.

In fact, many of these AE workers may not be ungrateful -- they may just be misguided by overpaid, under performing union thugs into thinking they are getting a raw deal for having to potentially pay $105 a month for what is most certainly pretty decent health insurance and accepting a pay freeze when they already make a pretty decent wage for the work they do.

In an national climate where the real unemployment rate is over 14%, the median household income is about $3,000 less than the average AE worker makes and most employees pay a hell of a lot more for their health insurance than $105 a month, perhaps AE workers, after some time for reflection were able to realize on their own that they weren't getting such a raw deal after all.

Now if only they were smart enough to tell the Teamster's Local 120 thugs to piss up a rope and stop paying dues that go right into the pockets these overpaid bullies that do nothing for them.. Nothing more, that is, than endanger the livelihoods of hard-working dairy employees that work for a decent employer than pays them outstanding wages and benefits.

Aren't Those Unions Wonderful?

This morning at midnight, 300 well-paid Teamster workers went on strike at a local dairy here.

Lil' ole Anderson Erickson Dairy in Des Moines, Iowa is suffering through the first strike in its 82-year history. Teamsters Local 120 is striking over a wage freeze and health insurance concessions. This is no different than other strikes being played out all over the country. And like many of those, these folks ain't exactly underpaid:

ObamaCare Implementation a Disaster

I hate to say I told you so but ... Some of us have been telling you for decades  that "free" or "affordable" government programs don't work.And Scott Gottlieb's report at proves it:

A remarkable truth about Obamacare is how many aspects of its initial programs and initiatives are already in disarray.
The Obama team is woefully behind its own schedule for implementing features of the legislation. The critical regulations outlining what the Obamacare insurance benefit will look like was supposed to be out more than six months ago. Now it looks like this regulation won't be dropped until after the election. This is just one key aspect of the program that is way behind the administration's own timeline.
These facts alone should give proponents of the law pause. But the early experience with the elements of Obamacare that have already kicked in is downright dismal.

Obama Campaign "Dishonest, Divisive" Says Zuckerman

Ya think, Mort????? Whatever gave you that idea? Bankrupt of ideas, hope vanished, "fundamental change" no one wanted well underway, what's a failed president to do but lie, cheat and steal to desperately try to win and election. When prominent libs start saying it out loud -- and Zuckerman isn't the only one -- you know the wheels are really starting to come off the bus:

Mortimer Zuckerman, the influential Democrat editior-in-chief of U.S. News & World Report called the Obama campaign “dishonest, divisive” in an article published in the online edition of the magazine.

“It is a dishonest, divisive campaign. It's discouraging of enterprise,” he penned. “It does the opposite of uniting the country to deal with the current economic crisis.”

Zuckerman, who is also the publisher and owner of the New York Daily News, said that Obama’s argument on taxes “is not just about whether the super-rich should pay more,” which he would support.

“It is about whether individuals, households, and small businesses should now be seen to cross the threshold into a plutocracy when earnings reach $250,000 a year — which buys much less in metropolitan areas than in the heartland,” according to Zuckerman. “It is outrageous to infer that aspiring to reach such a level is somehow un-American, and the Obama campaign surely must know that. Shame on them if they don't!”

Zuckerman blamed “careless remarks” on the part of GOP challenger Mitt Romney for allowing Obama to “get away with a program that pits ‘the millionaires and billionaires’ against the people.”
As far as "careless remarks" go, the Obama Administration has the market cornered on them, but Zuckerman's buddies just don't feel they are important enough to report them. Instead, they choose to report Romney's inelegantly-stated truth as a gaffe while ignoring not just the gaffes (Egypt isn't an ally but they aren't an enemy, they want to put ya'll back in chains) but the blatant, outright, in-your-face lies the Obama Administration and campaign tell seemingly on a minute by minute basis:

GM Slashes Price on Dud Volt

General Motors is slashing prices on the Solyndra of the automobile world:

General Motors is offering big discounts to boost sales of the Chevrolet Volt, a plug-in extended-range electric car that struggled to attract buyers until its price began dropping early this year.
Discounts run as high as $10,000 per Volt, according to figures from, an auto pricing website. They include low-interest financing and subsidized leases. Leases have run as cheap as $250 a month
Sales of the $39,995 car have quadrupled this year, and set a monthly record in August. They show that Americans, who have been slow to embrace electric cars, are willing to buy them if prices are low enough.
 Yes "sales of the $39,995 car have quadrupled this year and set a monthly record in August". GM sold a whole 2800 Volts in August. So many, in fact, that they decided to stop making them and re-tool the plant to make Malibus -- a car that actually sells.

The Volt is a car that nobody wanted produced by a quasi-government manufacturing operation at the behest of a government run by leftists who are enamored with impractical and non-marketable "green technology" that doesn't work.

Yes, the Volt doesn't work: The whole concept of the Volt is a lie. The truth about this ugly, overpriced and impractical piece of crap is buried at the end of the USA Today story:

The Chevrolet Volt can run about 25 miles on its batteries and electric motors before a gas engine takes over. Because it can be recharged by plugging in, owners rarely need to fill up at gas stations. But the car has been controversial because of the government bailout of General Motors and its cost.
Yes, that's correct. You drive the car 25 miles and plug it in for eight hours. This tends not to work very well for the normal driver who drives 20 miles to work and parks in a parking lot that doesn't have a place to charge their Volt. Which means that the Volt is for the most part a backwards gas-engined car that uses a gas engine not to power the wheels but to charge the battery. Kind of like peddling a bicycle to run a little generator that powers a little electric motor that turns the wheel of your bike. Positively ridiculous.

All this brings us to the reason why GM is paying $10,000 rebates to move Volt off the lot. By the way, even at $40,000, Chevy is losing $30,000 on each car sold. Which means Chevy lost $84 million on all the Volts it sold last month. Well now I understand why they what to sell MORE Volts: The more you sell, the more you lose.

9/11/12 Is Why Romney Must Win

A lot went through my mind the week of 9/11.
First, of course, was that sadness that has become so familiar over the past eleven years. And the vague unease with the coming of the day itself. It was a beautiful, blue-sky day, almost identical to that horrible Tuesday when the story of Chandra Levy and Congressman Gary Condit that had captivated us all for weeks was suddenly swept out of the public mind, which had no room for anything else once the planes had hit the World Trade Center.
As the day went on, it seemed somehow less observed than usual. I saw on Twitter that NBC’s Today show somehow managed to be talking to a Kardashian about breast implants when everyone else was in solemn observance of the exact time of the memorialized attack. Sadly, I was not surprised. For a few moments, I wondered whether it might be a good thing to return somehow to normal, to have as little notice for the day as we now have for Pearl Harbor, which rates not even a mention in my children’s school any more. I feel old just knowing that it occurred on December 7, 1941 (“a date which will live in infamy.”) No, I thought. Still too soon.
Then at some point I heard that our embassy in Egypt had been attacked, and the US flag torn down, burned, and replaced with some kind of flag of Islam. Again, not entirely surprised. I have been a pessimist about Egypt ever since our president decided to turn on our former friend Mubarak and sponsor the confused mix of anti-American, anti-imperialist, pro-Islamicist rebels to overthrow the government and take over the country. I believed only the radical Islamists had the institutional ability to create a government, and I believed that would be bad for Israel, and for America.
When I saw the Twitter feed of the embassy, I was again not surprised that those under attack, in our globally-minded new world order under Citizen of the World Barack Obama, would lead with an apology to their tormentors, blaming an obscure and nearly unseen video for what they portrayed as an understandable outburst of rage.
As a Romney partisan, I wondered what my champion would do or say about this horrific development, but I realized that he could not say anything on the anniversary of 9/11 that might be construed as political, due to the moratorium the two camps had agreed to observe in honor of those who lost their lives that day. Then, as the day moved on, the Twitterverse and the Internet lit up with reports of another embassy under siege—this one seemed more serious, and possibly deadly. Already aware that the President had turned down the plea of Benjamin Netanyahu to meet with him while both would be participating in the upcoming meetings at the UN, I was sickened to see that he was, instead, going to appear on Letterman and have a fund-raising party with Beyonce and Jay-Z. I was outraged to find that the President of the United States took time on the morning of 9/11 to spend ten minutes on the radio with someone called “the pimp with the limp” DJ Laz. On the anniversary of 9/11.
As the day’s events began to come into focus, I had never missed President Bush more. I remembered “President Bullhorn” as he climbed the debris and reassured the nation that he heard us, and that the people who were responsible for 9/11 would “hear all of us” soon. Watching our flag burn I also thought of the Democratic National Convention and how nearly every speaker screeched that “Osama bin Laden is dead” (with or without “and GM is alive”). I recalled how “President Saxophone” had spun a false narrative of the glories of his own presidency and tried to convince us that “no one” could have done a better job than Obama, and the video in which he said he hoped he would have made the same gutsy choice to go after Osama (when we know he actually made the choice not to). It made me sick to think there are people so disconnected from reality that they could believe a single word out of the mouth the man who shook his finger in our face and lied about his own behavior, who sent his Cabinet members out to defend his outrageous lie, and who to this day no longer has a law license because of his ethical violations. And I thought how very very much I cannot wait for “President DJ Jazzy Cool Dude” (or, in the words of Jimmy Fallon, the “Preezy of the United Steezy.”) to go away.
Finally, after the official day had passed, and just after midnight, Mitt Romney broke his enforced silence and denounced the policy of apology and defended the First Amendment and condemned the unconscionable violence. It was the right thing to do. It was the right thing to say. It was measured, and noble, and statesmanlike.
Until the media reported it.
The media was outraged that the Governor had the temerity to accuse the Obama Administration of apologizing, insisting that the Embassy workers in Egypt could not possibly have been speaking for the nation (though within twenty-four hours, the Secretary of State and the President of the United States would proffer multiple apologies to the Arab world, denounce a private citizen and the youtube video he put up, and call upon those involved with the creation of the video to remove it.) The media said Romney had “jumped the gun” (a phrase that quickly became the chosen term of art for this episode, until the President himself replaced it with “shoot first and aim later,” which his lapdog media immediately ran with.) The narrative of the day became (paraphrased}: “there was this video, and it is bad, and it made Arabs mad, and they attacked embassies, and our ambassador was unfortunately caught up in events. Oh, and also, Romney is an idiot, has wrecked his campaign, and has already lost. Obama rules.”
Unfortunately for the mainstream media, there are other ways of finding out information now. Soon, eyewitness reports appeared claiming that there was no way the Libya attack was spontaneous. The leaders of Libya admitted they had heard this sort of thing might be in the works and had told the State Department. And the embassy (which was not an embassy, but a mere consulate, and not an official one, either) was entirely undefended on the anniversary of 9/11 in Libya—the most recently-overthrown nation of the Arab world, where nothing should have been considered stable or safe.
As the story unfolded, we learned that the Ambassador, Chris Stevens, was known to be missing for ten hours, that the President went to bed not knowing where he was, that he might have been sodomized before being murdered and dragged through the streets by barbarians, that the Egyptian riot may have been a smokescreen that allowed the Libyan attackers through, and that the Ambassador had believed himself to be on al Qaeda’s hit list. And the President of the United States and the State Department had done nothing to protect him. On the anniversary of 9/11.
Today, more than a week later, we still have a president that can’t bring himself to have a face-to-face meeting with the leader of our key ally in a region literally on fire with anti-American hatred. We still have leaders attacking the First Amendment and apologizing to Muslims (while continuing to violate the Constitutional rights of Catholics). And we still have a media laser-focused on every word out of Mitt Romney’s mouth they can twist unrecognizably to fit their narrative of Romney as rich racist out-of-touch loose-cannon loser (despite the fact that Obama and Romney are tied in the polls). The same media that can’t find anything wrong with a President who admits he “believes in redistribution” and wants to “spread the wealth around,” who is presiding over an economy that has had unemployment over 8% for forty-two straight months, where more people go on food stamps every month than find work, in which nearly half of all Americans are receiving some form of government largesse, and where we are now less than 100 days away from the biggest tax hike in American history. Who is the same president who promised us that it would be just great when the Arab Spring brought democracy to the Middle East, who re-purposed NASA to make Muslims feel good about themselves and invited the Muslim Brotherhood into the White House, and whose Administration went into full destruction mode when Congresswoman Michele Bachmann had the temerity to ask questions about the Secretary of State’s chief aide’s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood (of which several of her family members are a part), who has said that the Muslim call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds in the world, and who plans to take the podium at the United Nations next week and apologize to Muslims for our First Amendment—in front of a body that includes nations where people have lost their lives defending freedom of speech and press and religion.
But there’s nothing to see here. The President rocks. And for three bucks you can have dinner with him. And salute him with your hands marked up with simplistic slogans, and pledge allegiance to his mutilated flag. And a 47/47 tie in the national polls means Romney’s already lost, so you might as well stay home.
For the media, that’s the end of the story. But not for me. And not for you. You need to know that the polls only get their Obama leads by including more Democrats than Republicans, by adjusting the ratios based on 2008 party identification patterns (if you believe those didn’t change radically in 2010, you haven’t been paying attention.) That if you adjust the numbers based on more realistic data, it’s a dead heat nationally and Romney leads by 1 to 3 in most of the swing states.
You should be aware that even though the media has reported that Obama has more cash on hand than Romney does (about 80K to 50K), they have NOT reported the equally true information that the Republican National Committee has ten times as much cash on hand as the Democratic National Committee does. And that if you put them together, the Republicans have about 40% more money than the Democrats, and that there is a grassroots campaign for conservatives and Tea Party adherents that is just beginning to activate, after having prepared for months for such a time as this.
Because of the money advantage, expect the Obama campaign to call in all its media chits (and they are prodigious) and appear in every free public venue possible, in order to stay solvent. However, considering how he spends his money (and ours), there is a very real possibility that if his minions don’t do well at the Obama Yard Sale and whatever other petty fund-raising tricks they’ll employ, the campaign will run out of money before the election. This is why the media has to keep telling you Romney has already lost, so that by the time the debates happen the impression will be ingrained enough to overcome whatever actual success Romney has in them.
But don’t give up just because the Obama camp is not fighting fair. Don’t forget that they are not fighting fair. Don’t forget that they’ve made fun of every personal attribute of Mitt Romney, Ann Romney, and Paul Ryan they can think of (including Ann Romney’s horse). Don’t give in when people repeat the false narratives of the media to you; respond with the truth, and make a convert.
Truth will win, and it is on
As Andrew Wilkow says on The Blaze (Dish channel 212), “We’re right. They’re wrong.” We will be victorious. And victory means one thing, as Ronald Reagan said, “We win. They lose.” That’s the plan.
We only have a few weeks left.
So get out there, and make it so.

Romney OVERPAID Taxes in 2011 -- Leftists STILL not Happy

Mitt paid nearly $500,000 more than he needed to in taxes due to not taking the full write-off for charitable donations and that pissed off Harry Reid:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid charged Mitt Romney with manipulating his 2011 taxes to “conform with his public statements,” after the Republican presidential challenger's return showed he paid nearly $500,000 more than he should have.

"Governor Romney is showing us what he does when the public is looking," Reid said. "The true test of his character would be to show what he did when everyone was not looking at his taxes."

Reid was referring to the Republican presidential candidate's decision not to take the full write-off on the huge amount he and his wife Ann gave to charity last year. The return, released Friday, show the couple donated some 30 percent of their $13.7 million income — but they did not take the full write-off, making their effective tax rate higher.

One tax expert estimated that decision cost the Romneys a little under half a million dollars.
This proves a couple of things: First the old adage that a Republican can't do anything right has never been more true. Romney should have stood firm and refused to release any more tax returns because he's damned if he did and he's damned if he didn't. Second, this is exactly as all of us conservatives predicted: The liberals only wanted more Romney's tax returns out there so they could beat him over the head with them. They aren't interested in the fact that Barry's big buddies Jay Z and Beyonce are wealthier than Romney could even imagine, as are some of his pro athlete buddies he likes to play pick up games and golf with. THEY'RE liberals.. Nobody seems the least bit interested in how Dirty Harry Reid became a multimillionaire when he's been a public servant for decades (can you say influence peddling and land deals?). And no one remembers four years ago when Shiftless Joe Biden released his income tax returns and he had paid $360 to charity on over $300,000 in income -- far less than most Americans gave to their churches on a fifth of the income.

So what did we learn with this little exercise? Romney has worked hard to earn his money, he probably paid closer to 50% on his income because this $13.7 million was already earned because most of it was investment income and had to earn it in order to invest it. He and Ann are very philanthropic people -- they gave a bigger portion of their income to charity than most rich libs did. And libs are still going to paint him as an evil bastard Republican.

Barry's "Fundemental Transformation" of Our Flag

Our Stripes: Flag Print 
Our pompous-ass  commander  in chief is selling this slanderous piece of garbage on his campaign web site for $35. This man and his sycophants have no respect for the sacred symbols of our nation. They are no better than the pieces of crap burning our flags overseas. Somebody needs to be arrested.

The Despicable Apology of Barry and the Missus

One of the lowest moments in a presidency chock full of low moments:

This apology ad buy featuring Barry and Mrs. Bill Clinton is beyond despicable. Your tax dollars and mine are going to kiss the asses of a bunch of uncivilized, Godless heathens as a way of begging them not to hate us and want to kill all of us anymore.

We have a bunch of weak, cowardly fools at the helm of the executive branch of our government while Egypt's prime minister has the audacity to lecture the greatest nation on the face of the earth about "striking a balance" between OUR First Amendment and their desire to kill us for our sacred right of free expression:

God help us if we don't throw these damn fools out of office in November.

Ex Gitmo Prisoner Linked to Libya Terror Attack

You just about knew this one was coming:

An ex-Guantanamo detainee once considered a “threat” to America is believed to have been involved in the attack against the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya — possibly orchestrating the deadly rampage, intelligence sources told Fox News.
The potential link with the militant, identified as Sufyan bin Qumu, could lead the White House to revise its claim that administration officials saw “no evidence” that last week’s attack on Sept. 11 was preplanned, and was instead a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islamist film produced in the United States.
Does this really surprise anyone? We have an US president and his administration charged with keeping the American people safe who refuse to call terrorists what they are -- terrorists, calling terror attacks "man-caused disasters" and failing to adequately protect our embassies. Finally, we're letting terrorists out of prison who then commit more acts of terror against out embassies that our president won't admit are terror attacks. Have we gone completely insane?

Just One More Symbol of a Nation in Decline?

The space shuttle Endeavor was flown off to become a museum piece today:

Another reminder of our decline as a leader in the world. The once mighty US space program -- the program that was the envy of the world -- is being shelved at the behest of the Obama Administration which has run up more debt in the last four years on wasteful crap like solar panel companies that went bankrupt without producing a thing than we ever spent on the entire 50+ years of the space program. Our greatness as a nation is being drained away and that's exactly the way Barack Hussein Obama wants it -- he's just following the dreams from his father.

Romney Said What?????

Common sense and the truth:

Conservatives rushed to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s defense Tuesday after the release of a video tape showing him characterizing supporters of President Obama as people "dependent on the government" who "believe that they are victims."

From Rep. Allen West to radio pundit Laura Ingraham and website commentators like Erik Erikson, conservatives around the blogosphere rallied to Romney's defense.

The response was notable both because of the speed and the depth of passion with which they defended Romney, who has bothered some conservatives with his flexible positions on issues like abortion over the years.

"Mitt Romney probably could have better explained himself," West, R-Fla., said Tuesday on Fox News. "I think he was a little clumsy in doing it."

Romney was right to say the US is "moving toward economic dependence instead of economic freedom." West pointed to the increase in food stamp recipients under the Obama administration as well as poverty and unemployment rates.
Which do YOU identify with more -- Obama's takers or the people who pay for his largess?
"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic"  - Alexis de Tocqueville. 
We're just about there folks. Re-elect Obama and the fundamental transformation of our country from a country of prosperity to a country of dependency will be complete.

Obama Adminstration May Finally Admit the Lie

You know the lie: That 50+ innocent protesters picked up rocket-propelled grenades and other heavy arms that were just lying around in the street and spontaneously began to attack the US consulate in Libya. Looks like they may be realizing that that dog won't hunt anymore and are looking for a way to save face:

As of late yesterday, the Obama administration was insisting that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens was not planned in advance. But this ignores what is known from sources on the ground in Libya and from the Libyan government itself. Mounting evidence will likely force the Obama administration to reverse itself and admit that the attack, which occurred on the eleventh anniversary of 9-11, was not spontaneous but was in fact a pre-planned act of terrorism and a major failure of U.S. intelligence.

25% of Social Secuirty Benefits Awarded Wrongly

Does this surprise anyone:

The Social Security Administration improperly awarded disability benefits in more than 25 percent of cases examined between 2006 and 2010, according to a new Senate report -- potentially costing taxpayers millions of dollars.
The findings conclude an 18-month investigation by the chamber’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations and show that roughly a quarter of the 300 randomly selected disability cases were awarded benefits “without properly addressing insufficient, contradictory and incomplete evidence.”
Each questionable decision can mean a big taxpayer expense. According to one estimate, the average lifetime disability award is $300,000.
The investigation was led by Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn, a medical doctor and the subcommittee’s top Republican. He said the bipartisan report shows information gathered over the past several years concludes the Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income programs are “teetering on financial bankruptcy.”
The 136-page report focuses on questionable benefits rulings made by administrative law judges, including one in Oklahoma who was found to have awarded more than $1.6 billion in lifetime benefits in just three years. Judge Howard O’Bryan, in Oklahoma City, approved roughly 90 percent of more than 5,400 cases from 2007 to 2009 -- most of them held “on-the-record” without hearings, according to the minority report.
How many times have I told you: The federal government does a lousy job of administering social welfare programs. It's time to get them out of the business of doing welfare. No accountability and fraud by the hundreds billions of dollars: That's what you get when the government tries to do "compassion".

Obama Team Lowers Expectations for Debates

They've been lowering expectations for his first term for months now. You know the routine .... "inherited the worst recession since the Great Depression" blah de frickin' blah and on and on. But I digress. Despite ample available evidence that this guy trips over his tongue almost as much as Bozo Biden the Veep Jester when he's off prompter (parents rush to the emergency room to get their kid a Breathalyzer, Egypt isn't an ally but it isn't an enemy ... you know that kind of stuff.) we've always been sold the line that he's a superb masturbater... er, debater. But really folks, how good a debater do you have to be to best John McCain in a debate? The ObamaBot Zombie campaign team realizes that Mitt Romney will probably approach the 2012 debates with slightly more zest that his previous lackluster opponent. And so they are setting about the business of lowering debate expectations for their once and fallen messiah:

"While Mitt Romney has done 20 debates in the last year, he has not done one in four years, so there certainly is a challenge in that regard," Jennifer Psaki, Obama's campaign spokeswoman, said of the president on Monday.
With Obama edging slightly ahead of Romney in public polling seven weeks from Election Day, the three October debates could be one of the Republicans' best opportunities to break through with voters. But the high-profile events are just as crucial for Obama, who was an uneven debater during the 2008 Democratic primaries.
In that way, some of the Obama campaign's tactical lowering of expectations is also rooted in the truth. Aides say the structured — and time-limited — nature of the debates isn't a natural fit for Obama, who often is long-winded when answering questions during news conferences or town hall-style meetings.
Face it, Forward losers, your candidate is a pud. As a president, he's a pud. As a candidate, he's a pud. He'd screw up the happy birthday song if it wasn't running on a TelePrompter in front of him. It's not that he's long-winded, it's just that it takes him eight years to get out a cogent point out on the rare occasions that he DOES get out a cogent point. And speaking of rare occasions, when does he EVER have a "news conference or town hall-style meeting"? More often than not, as he has done during this entire Middle East crisis, he makes idiotic pronouncements and retreats back into the safety of the White House, our plane or limo or his campaign bus. And by the way, "the polls" had Jimma Cata leading Ronaldus Magnus by a large margin at this point in the 1980 presidential race and the sorry excuse for a president lost his ass at the ballot box six weeks later.

Bottom line: Lower the expectations all you want, ObamaBot Zombies. I'm willing to bet that Mitt Romney will do so well in the debates that it will be difficult for even the sycophants in the leftist "Forward" media to spin the outcome for Obama. And I predict that the Biden/Ryan debate is going to be even uglier for Biden.

Administration Lies About Lybian Terror Attack

Don't believe your eyes or what everyone else says, folks. Those 50 terrorists that showed up with heavy armaments such as rocket propelled grenades outside the Libyan consulate on 9/11 were a "spontaneous" mob. Or so says Obama Administration hack ambassador Susan Rice:

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi last week was not premeditated, directly contradicting top Libyan officials who say the attack was planned in advance.
“Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo,” Rice told me this morning on “This Week.”
“In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated,” Rice said, referring to protests in Egypt Tuesday over a film that depicts the Prophet Muhammad as a fraud. Protesters in Cairo breached the walls of the U.S. Embassy, tearing apart an American flag.
“We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to – or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo,” Rice said. “And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons… And it then evolved from there.”

Don't believe the facts or the available evidence folks, Obama's hacks will tell you what to believe.

Cuts to Defense Budget Looming at Exactly the Wrong Time

As far as I'm concerned, there is NO good time to cut military spending. There are plenty of opportunities to to clean up bloated military expenditures and find ways to get more bang for the buck, but indiscriminately cutting military spending a la the ridiculous "sequester" agreement spineless Republicans agreed to because they didn't want to force the issue of fiscal responsibility on Democrats is inexcusable. Now the Obama Administration is ironically complaining about a situation it created through its fiscal irresponsibility:

The White House presented a detailed breakdown Friday of $109 billion in across-the-board spending cuts scheduled for January, setting off a fresh blame game between the Obama administration and Republicans over responsibility for what both say is a preventable budgetary calamity.
The itemization of the so-called "sequestration" plan showed potential pain all around: $11 billion out of the Medicare healthcare program for the elderly, a $15.3 billion cut in defense procurement accounts and hefty cuts to a Department of Agriculture program that supports farm prices.
There was also a cut of $129 million from embassy security, which would be particularly ill-timed in light of deadly attacks on U.S. diplomatic posts in the Middle East, Africa and Afghanistan by Islamic militants in recent days.
"Sequestration would be deeply destructive to national security, domestic investments and core government functions," the report says.
Don't let this feigned "alarm" from the White House fool you -- this is exactly as the Obama Administration wants it. Don't take my word for it, listen to retired Lt. Colonel and current U.S. Representative Alan West in the Republican's weekly radio address:

Social "Security" Going Down the Drain at a Faster Pace

Are you counting on "Social Security" in your retirement? Consider the biggest story no one is talking about -- not that there hasn't been a lot to talk about this week with the media apoplectic over Mitt Romney's response to the terror attacks on our embassies and busily ignoring Barry's feckless response to the same. But this week Social Security achieved an infamous milestone that puts the already-troubled program in even more jeopardy:

It was easy enough to miss the press release. Goodness knows there was a lot to pay attention to this week. If you missed it, the government announced its payouts to social security and disability payments had hit annual records, even though there was still a month left in the budget year.
Through the end of August, the federal government paid out more than $591 billion. That's $3 billion more in social security benefits and $129 billion more in disability benefits than last year.
There is more evidence of the growing claim of entitlements on our budget and while nobody begrudges retirees who've spent their lives paying into social security claiming their fair share, the numbers of Americans getting disability benefits is concerning.
Is it any wonder that Gerri Willis at Fox Business is the only one reporting on this?

"Social Security" has never been secure. From it's inception, "Social Security" has been one of the biggest lies ever perpetrated on the American people. People like Bernie Madoff get thrown in jail for life for schemes a million times less than "Social Security". Every time you bring this up, you will have some liberal screaming "liar" in your face: "Social Security" is the world's biggest ponzi scheme, promising fantastic returns on money that doesn't even exist. Consider this:

Jimmy Carter Supports Obama's "Carter Doctrine"

Yes, this doddering old fool who can't seem to keep his mouth shut is running his mouth again. But this time his diarrhea of the mouth is going to hurt the guy he wants to help. It seems that ole' Jimma' is talking about how he "handled" problems in the Middle East during his presidency. Which is bad for Barry because it highlights the similarities between the weakest two presidencies in modern history barely six weeks before the election. Of course the lefty college types lapped up Carter's message of war and conflict through weakness:

Carter got a very positive response in Des Moines Thursday when he defended his use of negotiations instead of war to solve international problems.
He said that in 1979 some of his advisers urged him to punish Iran militarily for taking the hostages, and he was told, "If you go to war, you're kind of a hero. If you stay out of war and prefer peace, you're too weak."
He did order a rescue attempt that failed. But he said a broader military strike would have killed tens of thousands of innocent Iranian civilians, so he resorted to negotiations, which were ultimately successful.
"Many people still look on that as a symbol that I was a weak president," he said. "But sometimes it takes more courage to preserve the peace than to go to war." At that point, many in the audience at Drake University gave him a sustained ovation.

This man has not gotten any smarter since he was president. "Sometimes it takes more courage to preserve the peace"? What in the hell is he talking about, "preserve the peace"? There was no "peace" Jimmy. Then, as now, we were at war -- a war we didn't ask for, a war we didn't start but a war nonetheless. And when you are attacked, you attack back harder and stronger which is something we were more than capable of doing but instead chose to stand by and wring out hands. And I hate to break it to this delusional old fool, but his "negotiations" were a hell of a lot less successful than was this absolutely certainty: That the fires of hell were going to reign down on this collection of radical nut jobs as soon at new President Ronald Reagan removed his hand from the Bible. This is perhaps why we had a split screen on that day in 1981 simultaneously showing Reagan being sworn in and the hostages returning home. This is what is called peace through strength.

Need Proof of a Liberal Media Bias? Look No Further

Americans are dead, our embassies are attacked. The Middle East is in a total meltdown. Hatred and contempt for American values is boiling over throughout the Middle East. And the press corp covering Mitt Romney is interested in one thing. Not Barry's total lack of leadership. Not the fact that Barry is totally clueless about what to do -- an amateur in wayyyyy over his head.Not the fact that Barry's policy of appeasement of radical Islam is a total failure. Not the fact that Barry's "foreign policy" such as it is, is completely coming apart at the seams. Yes, the world may be going to hell in a hand basket, politically and economically. And it may be very important that a potential president of the free world communicate what he thinks the failures of the current administration are and how he would do it differently. But all the ObamaBot Zombie liberal media is interested in is coordinating "gotcha" questions to make Romeny look bad:

Blatant liberal media bias on display. They're determined to see the worst president in modern history get re-elected and they're not about to let the real story -- Barry's total lack of leadership as the Middle East falls apart and hatred for America boils over -- get in the way of their agenda.

The DNC's Freudian Warship Backdrop

It took the organizers of the Democratic National Convention six frickin' days to apologize for using a backdrop of Russian warships in its tribute to OUR veterans:

The organizers of the Democratic National Convention apologized on Wednesday for accidentally using an image of Soviet-era Russian warships in its backdrop during a tribute to veterans at last week's convention in Charlotte, N.C.
The ships were shown on a screen behind 50 veterans assembled onstage Sept. 6 during a presentation by retired Adm. John Nathman.

"Due to vendor error, incorrect images appeared briefly on screen behind fifty-one veterans during the convention and the DNCC apologizes for this mistake," a Democratic National Convention Committee spokeswoman said in a statement to the Navy Times. "This error should not distract from the words of Admiral Nathman and others who spoke to President Obama's strong record on issues that impact those who have served our nation."
At least the Democrats have learned well from their leader -- never take responsibility for anything you can blame on someone else.  But worse than them not owning up to their mistake is the dismissive attitude their "apology" takes towards this grievous insult to everyone who has worn the uniform and fought for our great country.

With the way Democrats like to genuflect to our enemies -- and make no mistake Russia is every bit the enemy the Soviet Union was due to the abandonment of peace through strength by William Jefferson the Philanderer -- you can't help but wonder if this was just another act of genuflection towards a jealous weakened loser nation whose president would like nothing better than to dominate us. I bet Vladimir Putin got a good laugh out of this -- at the expense of the 51 military men and women standing in front of a backdrop of Russian warships.

Romney's Right: Obama Foreign Policy is a Laughingstock

The problem with Obama's foreign being a laughingstock is that Obama's foreign policy is currently US foreign policy.

Obama's joke of a foreign policy proved deadly for four American citizens today include our Libyan ambassador Christopher Stevens. But all the ObamaBot Zombie liberal media seems to be talking about is Mitt Romney's response to the US Government's first official position on the attack on our embassy in Egypt. Romney's response is not the point but it gives the Obama sympathizers in the liberal media something else to talk about besides the actual news: That the Obama Administration’s policy of genuflection, weakness and confusion puts our standing in the world in jeopardy and puts all of us in greater danger.

Romney didn't react too quickly or "overreact" to the US embassy's statement. As Romney said, the US Embassy in Egypt IS the federal government. That fact that the Obama Administration ended up denouncing the statement and issuing a new one merely indicates the total confusion and lack of coordination and leadership in Obama's foreign policy.

This type of confused foreign policy makes the world a much less safe place than it is when the US leads with the doctrine of peace through strength. Communist dictators, radical Islamists and other bad actors like Russian President Vladimir Putin see Obama listening intently as tin pan Central American dictators run down the greatest nation on the face of the earth. They see Obama whispering sweet nothings in the ears of foreign leaders, making promises that he'll be able to smooch 'em real good when he's re-elected. They see Obama making promises to eliminate OUR nuclear weapons even as radical nut job states rush headlong into developing their own. They see Obama turning his back on Israel. They see Obama reneging on missile defense agreements with former Soviet-bloc states. They see Obama slashing the size of our military. They see all of this and they know that the great United States is being transformed into a paper tiger by a president who loves himself and his father's radical ideology more than he loves America. They laugh, knowing that in the era of weak US foreign policy, they can get away with murder. And they do.

Peace through strength worked for the eight years of the Reagan Era. The only time it failed is the one time Reagan showed weakness and we lost 200+ Marine "peacekeepers" in Lebanon. We showed weakness during the Clinton Administration and the next eight years were characterized by war. What will the eight years following an Obama defeat hold for us now that his lack of foreign policy leadership and weak response to attacks on our embassies have shown radical Islamists and the rest of America's enemies that they can get away with pushing us around?

If we don’t defeat this man and his feckless foreign policy in November, the safety and sovereignty of this great nation and that of all our allies around the world will be in grave danger.

Obama Snubs Israeli PM Netanyahu -- Again

Reuters claims this is a "highly unusual" snub, but anyone who is paying attention knows that Obama doesn't like Netanyahu or Israel. What would you expect from a guy who is best friends with Yassir Arafat's former spokesman, Rashid Khalidi.

Barry's peep's claim it's just a scheduling conflict -- he just can't find the time to meet with the leader of our staunchest ally. You can check out Barry's schedule here. He usually doesn't have much on it. For the guy that is supposed to be the leader of the free world, he doesn't have much of a public schedule most days. However his private schedule -- b-ball games, rounds of golf, Wednesday parties and the all-important sports picks -- don't appear. So he may indeed be a very busy guy.

Now we are at war: We have attacks on two of our embassies by radical Islamists. And the president is AWOL -- yet to make any substantive condemnation of the attacks on our sovereign soil. But you can bet that Barry will have a full schedule of campaigning on our dime in the huge private plane WE provide for him. What a guy!

What Happened to Obama's "Arab Spring" in Egypt?

We've known it wasn't true even before Barry made his idiotic "Arab Spring" comments about "democracy" in the Middle East -- chiefly in Egypt. Now it seems, we are seeing how foolist these comments were as radical Islamists storm the U.S. Embassy in Cairo. Oh, and did you know an American was killed today when gunmen stormed the U.S. Consulate in Lybia?

Nothing is more important than our standing in the world because if we don't have a strong prescence in the world and effective foreign policy, we can't lead free nations in assuring that the world is safe for democracy. From Egypt to nuclear proliferation in Iran to tens of thousands dead in Syria, to the mess in Afghanistan what does Barry do? He sits on his hands. When he responded to the situation in Egypt, his knee jerk reaction was to genuflect and apologize.

Barry betrays our staunchest allies Israel and smootches the butts of Communists and Cold War throwbacks like the current leadership in Russia -- don't wrry Russia, he'll have more leeway to kowtow to you after he is re-elected and can go full steam ahead with the ass-kissing. At the same time, Barry is deliberately weakening our defenses by slashing military budgets while increasing our dependence on foreign oil byt chasing the "green energy" pipe dream. Meanwhile, we continue to sell our debt to a country that 30 years ago was a third-world laughingstock under Republican presidents.

How long will it take to for a President Romney to begin to undo the damage Barry and his merry band of incompetents has done? It''ll take at least two terms of President Romeny, two of President Ryan and more than that to undo the damage Obama has done. Let's hope we get started down the path out of the dark days of the Obama presidency this November.

Exactly Who is Waging a "War on Women"?

One of the ridiculous charges Democrats and the ObamaBot Zombie crowd are hurling at Romney and Ryan is that the Republican's policies somehow comprise a "war on women". As if a plan to cut everyone's taxes and stimulate economic growth to create jobs won't help everyone, including women. At any rate, Meghan Clyne in the Weekly Standard makes the superb point that Democrats are the ones who are defining "women's issues" as issues of women's genitalia. In other words, the Democrats want to drag women back to the "barefoot and pregnant" days and throw in a "by the way, we know you're too stupid to prevent pregnancy on your own so we'll allow you to abort your offspring right up until the time a doctor has to go in and kill it before it can be born alive". Klyne's excellent piece can be found here. Here are a couple of excerpts that capture the essence of the piece

National Security not a Priority for Barry

Apparently, the once and fallen messiah would rather catch a quick pick-up game or a round of golf. At least this is what we are to conclude from the fact that he hasn't attended even HALF of his daily intelligence briefings during his presidency:

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney calls a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report finding that President Obama has missed over half of his daily intelligence briefings “hilarious.”

“It’s revealing that Mr. Carney did not dispute the Government Accountability Institute’s actual numbers,” said Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer in an interview with Breitbart News. “That’s probably because our findings are drawn directly from the White House’s own calendar.”

The study found the following:

The Government Accountability Institute, a new conservative investigative research organization, examined President Obama’s schedule from the day he took office until mid-June 2012, to see how often he attended his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) — the meeting at which he is briefed on the most critical intelligence threats to the country. During his first 1,225 days in office, Obama attended his PDB just 536 times — or 43.8 percent of the time. During 2011 and the first half of 2012, his attendance became even less frequent — falling to just over 38 percent.

The last time we had a president who didn't take national security and the terrorism threat seriously was during the Clinton Administration and we are commemorating the 11th anniversary of the result of that dereliction of duty. It's no coincidence that we just "celebrated" the 14th anniversary of Clinton's lies about Monica Lewinsky so we know where his priorities were. And this guy is the best they can do for an elder statesman in the Democratic Party, but I digress.We can't afford another president who is even less engaged in what should be one of his primary duties: To keep this country safe. Add this to the long list of reasons why we need to boot this guy out of office in November.

Barack Between a Rock and a Hardcore Teacher's Union

What's Barry to do? His overpaid, underperforming buddies in the Chicago public schools are pissed at his other buddy, Rahm Emanuel because he has a budget to balance and doesn't want to pay them overpaid teachers even more money:

By NBC Chicago and news services

Updated at 8:03 a.m. For the first time in 25 years, teachers in the country's third-largest public school system hit the picket line early Monday.

After a weekend of unsuccessful 11th hour contract negotiations, the Chicago Teachers Union made good on its promise to walk out on more than 400,000 students at 675 schools.

We have failed to reach an agreement that will prevent a labor strike," Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis said.

The strike follows more than a year of slow, contentious negotiations over salary, health benefits and job security after the school board unanimously voted last year to cancel teachers' 4 percent pay hike in the final year of their contract.

CPS went into full-on strike mode Monday, enacting a plan to keep 144 schools open from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. And after a violent Chicago summer, police Supt. Garry McCarthy said he's "emptying our offices" to patrol the thousands of unsupervised kids on the streets.

"This is a difficult decision and one we hoped we could've avoided," Lewis said Sunday. "Throughout these negotiations, we've remained hopeful but determined. We must do things differently in this city if we are to provide students the education they so rightfully deserve."

Moments earlier, Chicago School Board President David Vitale said more than 20 offers had been made to teachers throughout the talks in hopes of preventing a strike.

Still, there was no deal.
This may be the one and only time I have ever agreed with Rahm Emanuel. (BTW, this Chicago mayor gig is really getting to this guy -- he looks like hell, which is saying something for a guy who isn't all that great looking in the first place.)

As usual, the lefty media -- in this case the Today Show -- isn't telling the whole story. "The strike follows more than a year of slow, contentious negotiations over salary, health benefits and job security after the school board unanimously voted last year to cancel teachers' 4 percent pay hike in the final year of their contract." is one way to put it. Here's a more accurate way:

Say it Ain't So Mitt -- Love Liberty, not Any Little Tiny Bit of ObamaCare

It's bad enough when our candidate's flunkies throw out the odd references to RomneyCare. But when our candidate endorses even teeny tiny bits of ObamaCare, it makes me want to pull my hair out:

(CNN) – Mitt Romney gave the appearance of taking a stunning new position Sunday when it seemed he was embracing parts of Obamacare, a law he's vowed – vehemently and repeatedly – to repeal if he wins the election. "So you'd keep that part of the federal plan," NBC's "Meet the Press" host David Gregory asked the candidate, referring to ObamaCare provisions about pre-existing conditions and coverage for young adults. Romney replied, "I'm not getting rid of all of health care reform. Of course, there are a number of things that I like in health care reform that I'm going to put in place."
As is always the case with the Clinton News Network, they aren't telling the whole story.

Note to Mitt: Ronald Reagan, you ain't but you ARE the Republican so that means you have 666 tattooed on the back of your head under that perfectly formed head of hair. They are going to distort everything you say anyway, so don't throw them any easily distortable quotes like "there are a number of things I like in health care reform that I am going to put into place" for God's sake! This gives them an opening to do exactly what they did which is slice off this tiny piece of the truth and throw it out there like red meat for the ObamaBot Zombies to distort even further.

The simple fact of the matter is this: There is NOTHING about ObamaCare that is worth a stinking pile of crap. It all needs to be repealed and the only thing that needs to replace it is liberty and free markets.

Here are some facts about health care:

Obama Gets Post-Convention Bump

The parade of freaks, geeks, dependents and class warfare warriors apparently was a hit with the ObamaBot Zombies:

President Barack Obama got a sizeable bump coming out of the Democratic National Convention last week, according to several major polls released over the weekend.

A weekend Gallup poll shows Obama, who took pulling ahead of GOP contender Mitt Romney by four percentage points.
For weeks, most polls have shown Obama and Romney in a dead heat. His job approval number now stands at 52 percent, a nine-point jump since late August.

This despite what many considered a middling convention speech -- overshadowed by former President Bill Clinton's stunner -- and a bad jobs number report released on Friday. Obama has now transformed a two-point deficit into a four-point advantage.

These numbers might have more credibility if it weren't for the fact that they come from the same polling groups David Axelrod was bullying last week. 

Here's my theory: Slobbering ObamaBot Zombies, oversampling of Democrats and the fact that more welfare recipients answer the phone are responsible for these numbers -- shades of Reagan/Carter and Reagan/Mondale post convention ... And we know how those turned out. If I'm wrong and this holds up at the ballot box we apparently are a nation full of morons on the dole and we deserve what we get ... And the rest of us sane folks didn't do enough to convince others that the road Obama is leading us down is turning us into the world's largest Venezuela. For the time being, I will employ the power of positive thinking and prefer to believe that there is no way better than 50% of us are stupid enough to vote us into dependence, misery and tyranny.

Liberal Lies About the Obama Economy

On the heels of the most convoluted Democratic National Convention in history (and that's saying something) with one of the worst acceptance speeches on record -- same old crap different campaign -- we have one of the main reasons why Barack Hussein Obama needs to be booted out of office on his ass: The fake, phony made up unemployment number that even Barry can't deny is piss poor:

U.S. jobs growth slowed sharply in August, setting the stage for the Federal Reserve to pump additional money into the sluggish economy next week and dealing a blow to President Barack Obama as he seeks re-election.
Nonfarm payrolls increased only 96,000 last month, the Labor Department said on Friday. While the unemployment rate dropped to 8.1 percent from 8.3 percent in July, that was because so many Americans gave up the hunt for work. The survey of households from which the jobless rate is derived actually showed a drop in employment.

Meanwhile, the labor-force participation rate, or the percentage of Americans who either have a job or are looking for one, has plunged to 63.5 percent — the lowest since September 1981. A total of 368,000 people gave up looking for work in August.
 So we have a smaller percentage of people in the workforce today with a population of 310 million than we did in 1981 with a population of 230 million -- 80 million MORE people, fewer eligible Americans in the workforce. If the labor-force participation rate were as high as it was when Barack Obama took office, unemployment would be 11.2%. Yet the claim is that unemployment DROPPED from 8.3 to 8.1%. The economy added 96,000 jobs -- a number that will no doubt be revised down when no one is looking as June and July's numbers were -- and 368,000 Americans STOPPED LOOKING FOR WORK. In real math terms this is a NET LOSS of 272,000 Americans from the labor force. And these types losses have occurred every month during the Obama Administration. Even with the unemployment number tricks, Barry's legacy is and unemployment rate that has NEVER been below 8% for his entire term.

Gas prices are double what they were when Barry took office, food prices are through the roof, yet we are told inflation is low and the number of food stamp recipients is at an all-time high. Shiftless Joe Biden tells us we've "turned the corner" and in his speech Barry asks for more time and that recovery from the "worst recession since the Great Depression" will require a little more time. How the hell long do you need Barry?????

As Charles Krauthammer pointed out on Special Report with Bret Baier tonight, this recession officially Barry whines constantly about ended in July of 2009 -- barely six months after he took office. He can't lay claim to turning the country around because he hadn't been in office long enough to have an impact. Nothing that he has done has improved economic conditions in our country for his entire presidency. All we have from him are broken promises and lies. Enough of this.There are those of us who knew this was a mistake before he was elected and there should be enough Americans who now know they made a mistake to join with us and boot Barry out of office in November. No less than our survival as a country depends on it.
