We’re on to Obama’s slight of hand tricks

Here’s an interesting parallel:

When Clinton’s popularity was waning and he was wracked with sex scandals, we went to war in Bosnia. It was a poorly veiled attempt to shift the focus from one unpleasant thing to something the nation could rally around.

Now, we have another liberal (Marxist) president who refuses to call a terrorist a terrorist or a war a war. In Orwellian fashion, we have newspeak like overseas contingency operations in place of war and man-made disasters in place of homocide bombers.

I’ve noticed that Obama’s honeymoon with the media is coming to an end, albeit slower than with any other president in my memory.  These tv guys are asking almost difficult questions of the press secretary and the president, himself. As we all know, there’s dissension in the ranks on Capitol Hill with the democrats being displeased with the president’s actions and decisions, of late.  Obamacare is less popular this year than last, states are suing in federal courts and his poll numbers aren’t stellar enough any longer.

So what did he do?

He went to war –  the third front in the Middle East.

But this is the just war. The good war. Just as Afghanistan is and Iraq was not – according to Obama and his flock. We’re doing the righteous thing by protecting and aiding the “rebels,” whoever they are (and it’s still being debated just who they are) while we leave Gadhafi alive and in power. We’ll leave him alive so that he can terrorize and brutalize his people on another day.

And at the same time, in Clinton-esque fashion, we are being distracted from Obama’s negatives.

However, after 2 years I think most of us have learned now to keep an eye on what the other hand is doing.


You know that in Obama’s recent budget, he wants to double our aide to Libya from $900,000 to $1.7million?  I wonder how much influence his friends Wright and Farrakhan had on him about that?

Call for a vote and get it over with!

If these events are true, they make no difference to me and they are nothing more than a distraction from the real issues that we will be facing after today’s vote.

How many times have tea party-ers and all patriots in fact, been called racists, angry mob, nazi’s, etc? Has everyone but the conservatives forgotten about Kenneth Gladney’s attack by SEIU members?

So, some congressmen got spit on. So, someone called Barney Frank a fag. So what? Some even called these lawmakers idiots. Imagine that!  So the f*ck what?

This behavior doesn’t reflect mine – well, maybe the idiot part.  But I’ve never spit on anyone and can’t imagine ever doing so. I’ve never called anyone a fag and know I’ll never do that. Whoever behaved this way today in DC, does not reflect the majority of Americans who are frustrated beyond belief at being wholly ignored by the people who we employ in Washington? Capitol Hill is ours, every inch of marble and wood is ours. Every person working inside it, work for us, at our pleasure. If nothing else was accomplished this weekdend with the tea party rally in DC, it was to remind those people that they are nothing more than employees of the American people.

And come November, whatever they do from today on, they will be pink slipped. I don’t see any redemption for them now.
