Read her lips – “all this for a flag?”

And his smirky response isn’t much better.

I honestly can’t see how this can be understood any other way. She’s mocking those who are folding the flag, as if this is the first time she’s ever seen this protocol. Well, maybe it is.


Forget this day at our peril

God will punish us if we ever forget the innocent people in these planes and buildings.

Two years ago, TheOne signed into law a remaking of this day into a National Day of Service.  3000 people died and we are supposed to recognize this as a day of service?  Is that some kind of sick joke?

His plan was to “erase this day from our psyche” and remake it into something that makes no sense to Americans who need to grieve, who need to remember.  It was just one of the many despicable things, but probably the most despicable, that this man has done since he took over the WH.

Now, today we have Obama’s cheerleader in chief, Paul Krugman in the NYT say that 9/11 has become “an occassion for [national] shame.”

What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. T[h]e atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.

Shame on him. Shame on his president.

This day will forever be a day of mourning for Americans, no matter what they try to do or what they say about it.

We will never forget.

It would be good to read or reread the American Spectator column by Matthew Vadum in 2009.  I linked to it above. This is a walk down memory lane from only 2 years ago and it was shades of things to come from this WH, as well.

Frank Luntz’ Words that Work at work with the Socialists in power

Recognizing the unpopularity of the 2009 [stimulus] package, however, Democratic leaders have revised their message with less loaded language–”job creation” instead of “[CENSORED]” and “Make it in America” in lieu of “Recovery Act”–in hopes of tackling the jobs crisis.  James Taranto/WSJ

The “[CENSORED]” word is stimulus.  Do read the whole column. It’s very interesting and in fact, email it to friends and family. They need to read exactly what the Obama regime and his minions in Congress are trying to do to us, because we are obviously too stupid to really know what they are up to.

Just like it is no longer TAX, it’s now REVENUE, Pelosi and company have changed the words, to hide the meaning.  Just change the word(ing) and they can pull the wool over our eyes.

uh huh.  Are you fooled? Are you still fooled?

If so, then you ARE a fool!


Quote of the day – Maureen Dowd

Obama is still suffering from the Speech Illusion, the idea that he can come down from the mountain, read from a Teleprompter, cast a magic spell with his words and climb back up the mountain, while we scurry around and do what he proclaimed.  Maureen Dowd


Quote of the day – George Clooney

Gotta love this guy:

“As for running for president, look, there’s a guy in office right now who is smarter than almost anyone you know, who’s nicer and who has more compassion than almost anyone you know. And he’s having an almost impossible time governing. Why would anybody volunteer for that job?” Mr. Clooney told a news conference.

With geniuses like this guy on his side, Obama’s a sure thing to win in ’12.


We have the same goal. Let’s focus on it.

The goal is to replace Obama next November and at this point there is not one GOP candidate who can do nearly as bad or worse than Obama has done for this nation.

There is no perfect candidate for any one of us. For me, Paul fails hugely on foreign policy; Perry’s immigration policy is hardly what I would agree with; Romney has that suitcase on his back called RomneyCare; Bachmann is just a little too strident. But I’ll take any one of them over Obama, any day. And I’m betting that most Conservatives agree with me – no matter what differences we might have with these candidates, they are head and shoulders better than the man in the Oval right now.

Right now, the democrats (now known as Marxists) are targeting the Tea party and from polling results, it appears it’s working for them.  Fewer people are viewing the Tea party in favorable terms. Fewer people agree with the Tea party message.  This is old news to most of you. But the fact is that the message is being stolen and perverted by the Marxists (once known as democrats) and we need to get that back.  The Tea party are the freedom fighters for all and we have to make that message known. Concentrating on the differences between candidates and not on the president and his Marxist party is to our peril.

I want to see the GOP candidates stop beating each other up and start showing us what they will do differently than Obama. They need to stop sniping at each other and focus on Obama’s failed administration.   We’ve got to be unified against the creeping socialism that is overtaking us or we will be doomed after November ’12.


Quote of the day – Mort Zuckerman

Many voters who supported him are no longer elated by the historic novelty of his candidacy and presidency. They hoped for a president who would be effective. Remember “Yes We Can”? Now many of his sharpest critics are his former supporters. Witness Bill Broyles, a one-time admirer who recently wrote in Newsweek that “Americans aren’t inspired by well-meaning weakness.” The president who first inspired with great speeches on red and blue America now seems to lack the ability to communicate any sense of resolve for a program, or any realization of the urgency of what might befall us. The teleprompter he almost always uses symbolizes and compounds his emotional distance from his audience.  Mort Zuckerman/WSJ

Quote of the day – Quin Hillyer

The truth is, it’s a sad day in America when Joe Biden’s blarney would be a marked improvement in Oval Office leadership.

Is your car warranty still good? Better find out.

“Let me say this as plainly as I can. If you buy a car from Chrysler or General Motors, you will be able to get your car serviced and repaired just like always,” Obama said in a speech. “Your warranty will be safe. In fact, it will be safer than it has ever been. Because starting today, the United States will stand behind your warranty.”

But now GM is saying it’s not responsible for “old GM” warranties.  A lady has file a class action lawsuit because “new GM” is refusing to honor the warranty on her Impala.

2008 Chevy Imapala

“There are no specific factual allegations that New GM — as opposed to Old GM — did anything at all in relation to her vehicle,” [Ben] Jeffers [GM attorney] wrote. “Plaintiff here is trying to saddle new GM with the alleged liability and conduct of old GM.”
And this comes as a surprise to who? Why would anyone expect that Obama would keep his word? And make no mistake, this has the face of Obama all over it. GM and Chrysler are Obama and his union’s babies.
If I owned a GM made before 2009, I’d sell it as quick as I could and get myself a Ford.
But I already own a Ford.
