A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words…..

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 24, 2008

In the spirit of Barry’s appeasement, I believe this speaks volumes.  Its tracks could be the new logo of his campaign:

The Obamas Strike Back

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 20, 2008

A long time ago in a liberal world far, far away……….

It is a dark time for the Republic.  Although the Democratic Death Star has been destroyed in the past two Presidential election cycles, liberal troops have driven the Republican forces from their base and pursued them across the country.  Evading the dreaded Liberal Starfleet, a group of freedom fighters has established a new secret base.  The evil lord B Hussein Obama, obsessed with rhetorical banter, has dispatched thousands of remote probes into the far reaches of the country……..for now…….

THE OBAMAS STRIKE BACK

Well, well, well it seems we have another thing we can’t talk about with Barry.  His wife.  Even though this pompous windbag puts Mrs. John Kerry to shame.  On Good Morning America B Hussein Obama called the GOP’s ad “low class” and unacceptable” regarding Michelle Obama’s lack of pride in her country.  The truth stings Barry.  But perhaps Michelle Malkin put it best:

Barack, sweetie, your conversation with ABC News’s Robin Roberts insisting that your wife’s public remarks on the campaign trail be exempt from public criticism doesn’t help my children.

The proud Obamas claim they want to talk about the “issues,” rather than “distractions.” But when the candidate puts his bitter half on stage and his chief public surrogate, what comes out of her mouth is an issue.

Well said Ms. Malkin, well said.  It seems Barry and Michelle get upset when held accountable to their own words.  Whether it be his appeasement or her lack of pride.

An Absolute Backhand—Redux

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 17, 2008

Earlier this morning B. Hussein Obama said in a speech shown on Fox News: “I have never said I would negotiate with terrorists.”  Yet from his very own website he says this:

Diplomacy: Obama is the only major candidate who supports tough, direct presidential diplomacy with Iran without preconditions. Now is the time to pressure Iran directly to change their troubling behavior.

Take the biggest idiot you know.  I mean the guy that is just so oblivious to common sense and reason.  You know, the guy who says we didn’t land on the moon or that the dinosaurs never existed–that guy–and even he knows it is an undeniable fact that Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism.  Barry says very clearly that he’s going to negotiate with them, and somehow convince them to “change their troubling behavior.”  And yet, he stands there and denies it with a straight face.

It seems W really rattled Barry and the Democratic Party with his speech yesterday.  But rather than ignoring Bush’s argument against appeasement, or even adopting it, B. Hussein Obama has declared that Bush intended his bashing of appeasement as an attack on his campaign, even though Bush never even mentioned the modern appeasers in his speech.  Obama lashed out in a speech calling Bush’s rhetoric “appalling.”

Frankly, Bush wasn’t even referring to American politicians in his speech, but instead politicians in Europe and elsewhere who have a clear distain for Israel.  No where in his speech did he point to any candidate or the Democratic Party, unless they identify themselves as the reference.

B. Hussein Obama claims he’s not an appeaser.  But when President Bush attacked those who “seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists,” why was the senator so sure he was talking about him?

An Absolute Backhand

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 16, 2008

You know, there is a list of things W has done that has made Conservatives mad.  Immigration, his open government checkbook, his insistance on trying to reason with liberals (silly George, liberals can’t be reasoned with), etc., etc.  But when he laid this smack down, I really felt proud:

“Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along,” Bush said at Israel’s 60th anniversary celebration in Jerusalem.

“We have heard this foolish delusion before,” Bush said in remarks to Israel’s parliament, the Knesset. “As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”

What did the five fingers say to the face??  Slaaaaaaaapppp!!

Thank you, thank you.  But seriously, since B. Hussein Obama has repeatedly stated that he would meet with leaders of terrorist supporting countries and has advisors who meet with terrorist supporting dictators, I would say old Barry should take W’s speech to heart.  In fact, he should just write it down.  But we all know  he won’t.   He is a liberal democrat, surrender and appeasment are all he knows.

A Faux Pas Of Note

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 14, 2008

I am sure by now most of you have not seen B. Hussien Obama’s faux pas here of late.  Mostly because the media doesn’t like “B Smokes A Lot” looking bad.  But apparently ol’ B thinks there are 57 states in our beloved union.

Now as much of a hater that I am of our muslim friend, even I can probably chalk this one up to the rigors of campaigning–maybe.  I mean even though he went to uber lib Harvard, surely he knows how many states this country has.  But there is a sliver of me that thinks he might really be confused.  I mean “How many states are there in America” is the kind of question they ask you at the hospital after you’ve had a seizure to see if your brain is still working.  Knee jerk reaction type stuff.

I guess he was also pretty tired when he didn’t know where he was campaigning or even what month it was.  It’s funny how all these jerk stains can make a quick buck on Bush’s gaffes and “Bushisms,” and while funny, Barry’s on the other hand goes damn near un-reported.

Just Another Thing……

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 11, 2008

As if my recent birthday didn’t remind me enough that I am getting old and have basically done nothing with my life, we have this guy pouring salt into the wound.  Are you kidding me?  I was in a bowling league for about 10 years.  Even had my own ball.  Hell, I even had my own shoes!  

With that, the best I could do was roll a 290.  Even then, my series for the night was rather dismal.  A 125 for the first game, 290 for the second and finished with a 187.  A 602 series with a 290 in it isn’t something to brag about.   

ALTA, Iowa – A 78-year-old legally blind man nicknamed “The Hammer” has bowled a perfect game. Dale Davis of Alta, Iowa, nailed 12 consecutive strikes and reached 300 on Saturday night during league play.

“It’s a great sport. It’s something the young, the old and the handicapped can do,” Davis said Thursday. “I guess I count as the old and handicapped.”

If it is something the old can do, I sure as hell don’t want to wait until I am 78 years old.

Ethanol Is Bad Mmmm’Kay??

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 4, 2008

Finally we have Republican leadership at least being proactive on something.   Republican Congressman F. James Sensenbrenner co-sponsors a bill to pull the plug on the insanity of continuing to squander tax dollars on unchecked subsidies to the ethanol industry, which after almost 27 years, still hasn’t been able to turn a profit.

Plus, you get an entire new area of the market affected by this bad idea.  Farmers switch their crops over from soybean, wheat, and other produce to government subsidized corn, thus decreasing their supply. What you see is an across the board increase in prices for all food items. This very real fact is swept under the rug because the media’s belief in global warming overrides the importance of having affordable food world-wide.  My good friend Zulubuff put this very eloquently in his post a few weeks ago.

But at the end of the day, I am just glad some one from congress is finally doing something about it.  It is at least a step in the right direction.

A Kicking Trailer

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 3, 2008

As Batman movies go, I have made it known that you can’t beat Nicholson as The Joker.  But this trailer for the new Batman flick Dark Knight looks absolutely bad ass.  The late Heath Ledger makes this character look super, super dark–hence the name of the movie.  I am actually looking forward to this one.

Trickle down…..Racism?

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 2, 2008

After listening to the Reverend Jerimiah Wright’s speech at the NAALCP (National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People) and the lively discussion afterwards, I started to ponder if he was on to something.  And after reading this article, I wondered if he was really speaking the truth.  Is America so racist that it trickles down to their pets? 

Large, black dogs often go unwanted at the nation’s animal shelters

According to animal shelter officials, big, black dogs have more trouble finding homes than do other dogs. There’s even a name for it: “Big black dog syndrome.”

Nobody tracks the problem nationally, and local shelters often keep only limited data on the sizes, breeds and colors of the dogs that are adopted or put down, according to the Humane Society and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

“But anecdotally,” said Stephen Musso, executive vice president of the ASPCA, “that’s what we hear from shelter after shelter: Big, black dogs just don’t get adopted.”

At the city animal shelter in Rogers, Ark., big, black dogs almost always make up the bulk of the animals put to sleep each month. Last month 13 of the 14 dogs killed by the city were large and black — mostly Labs, shepherd mixes, pit bull mixes and Rottweilers, said Rhonda Dibasilio, manager of the city Animal Services Department.

It’s not just that large dogs can be frightening: Animal shelters say black dogs of all sizes are difficult to photograph for online listings and are hard to spot against the shadows of their crates and cages in dimly lighted kennels.

I know, I know.  I was shocked too.

Brewster Was On To Something

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 1, 2008

So I was watching our lovely Presidential candidates on the news last night and it got me thinking.  There was this movie back in the 80’s with Richard Pryor called Brewster’s Millions.  Basically, the premise of the movie is Pryor’s character (Monty Brewster) has a rich relative who passes away and leaves a huge gob of cash monies to him.  In order to test if Brewster knows the value of a dollar, he is given the task of disposing $30 million in 30 days.  Brewster isn’t allowed to have any assets (“things” for those of you in Rio Linda) to show for the $30 million or waste the money in any way.  If successful, Brewster gets to inherit the big jackpot of $300 million.

It was actually a good movie as far as 80’s movies go.  But one of the things Brewster does in the movie to help spend his money is run for political office.  As we all know, running for any public office requires cash and a lot of it.  Even in 1985.  However getting elected would be against the rules of the agreement as this would be considered an asset.  So his campaign slogan is “None Of The Above.”  As in don’t vote for any candidate including himself.

On a side note (sort of), I googled “none of the above” and there are quite a few organizations devoted to the phrase.  Apparently, they want a provision to enact a Voter Consent law, giving voters the ballot option to reject all candidates for an office and to call for a new election, with new candidates, to fill that office.  Snicker, snicker, snicker…………….actually now that I think about it…….that might not be a bad idea.

None of the Above…..hmmmm……it does have a nice ring, doesn’t it?  Limbaugh’s Operation CHAOS has nothing on that.
