Liberals take off the warrior masks and reveal hypocrite faces beneath

Posted in Politics, War with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2009 by thedoyle

Rich Lowry of NRO points out New York Times hypocrite Frank Rich’s changing stance on Afghanistan here but Rich is not alone in his hypocrisy. All of the Democrats and their Liberal supporters share that particular vice. During the Presidential Campaign the Dems and especially “The One” made quite the stink about how George W. Bush had taken his eye off the “important fight” and wasted time in Iraq. I knew at the time they were full of it, that they were willing to say anything to bash Bush but make it seem as though they themselves were not simply just a bunch of arugula-eating-surrender-monkeys.

Now, predictably, they are ready to give up the fight…again. Sure they blame it on changing circumstances such as the election, but that’s simply a pretext thinner than the Gulf of Tonkin (also used by a Dem) to do what they wanted to do earlier; give up, apologize and bend over. That is what they seem best at.

Obama’s UN Speech filled with Lies and Fantasy.

I watched the entire speech yesterday because I am a masochist. NRO posted a transcript. Obama began lying in the second sentence and it didn’t stop till the end.

“I come before you humbled by the responsibility that the American people have placed upon me, mindful of the enormous challenges of our moment in history, and determined to act boldly and collectively on behalf of justice and prosperity at home and abroad.”
HA. “Humbled” my ass, he’s one of the most arrogant, self-absorbed, self-obsessed people I have seen in the political scene in this country EVER. “Determined to act boldly” except in the case of Iran’s election where he sat back and said let’s wait and see, it’s none of our business they need to work this out on their own so that he wouldn’t wreck a chance to grovel to Achmadinnerjacket at a later date.
The only true statement in that sentence was his claim he would act “collectively.” All socialists believe in the collective, the superiority of the group over the individual. Obama’s collectivism was on full display there for sure.

“I have been in office for just nine months — though some days it seems a lot longer.”

It certainly does seem longer to me, it seems like this nitwit has been trying to screw up our country for years with his socialist view.

“I am well aware of the expectations that accompany my presidency around the world.”
WTF?? Who cares about the expectations of the rest of the world, he doesn’t work for them he works for us. This is a prime example of what is wrong with Obama and the left in general, their constant obsession with how the world sees us. They are like high school girls worried about whether the cool kids will like them. The rest of the world will never like us, they never have. The left loved to talk about how it was all George W. Bush’s fault that the world didn’t like us, which was pure bullshit. The world never liked us, no one likes the big dog, they all want to be the big dog or tear him down.

“These expectations are not about me.”
For someone who says its “not about me” the speech is filled with “me” and “I” hell, he managed to refer to himself 4 times in those last three sentences. Like I said self-absorbed and self-obsessed.

“Rather, they are rooted, I believe, in a discontent with a status quo that has allowed us to be increasingly defined by our differences, and outpaced by our problems. But they are also rooted in hope — the hope that real change is possible, and the hope that America will be a leader in bringing about such change.”
Wow he actually managed to work in his campaign slogan…twice, into a speech before the world. Bravo, he has brought self-absorption and cheap politicking to a whole new level.

“I took office at a time when many around the world had come to view America with skepticism and distrust.”
Again, see above the world had done that since George Washington not just since George W. Bush.

“Part of this was due to misperceptions and misinformation about my country.”
And who helped spread that misinformation and who helped create those “misperceptions?” Oh that’s right it was the left, people like John Kerry going overseas and badmouthing our country and badmouthing its soldiers. People like Dick Durbin who called the guards at Gitmo, Nazis. People like Obama himself who went on a world wide apology tour after taking office solidifying every bad idea ever held. I could give tons of examples of just the left’s politicians let alone leftist nitwits like Michael Moore, George Clooney, the Dixie Chicks etc.

“Part of this was due to opposition to specific policies, and a belief that on certain critical issues, America has acted unilaterally, without regard for the interests of others.”
Of course Obama thinks this horse-crap is true In his mind, and the mind of leftists, only if the interests of others is more important than our own are our actions proper. If only our own interests are at stake we must then get approval from others to act. A suicidal thought pattern that John Kerry had suggested during his failed bid for President. An intelligent person knows that if our interests are at stake and the world is content to do nothing then they can sit there while we take action. Let them grumble all they want, they weren’t willing to do anything to help us they obviously don’t have the balls to do anything to oppose us.

“And this has fed an almost reflexive anti-Americanism, which too often has served as an excuse for collective inaction.”
More fantasy belief that the anti-Americanism is new and more collectivism on display.

“Now, like all of you, my responsibility is to act in the interest of my nation and my people, and I will never apologize for defending those interests.”
He won’t apologize for defending those interests but he went around apologizing for just about everything else, what a hypocrite, what a tool. Also, he refers to himself 4 times in one sentence, a new record. But it’s not about him.

“But it is my deeply held belief that in the year 2009 — more than at any point in human history — the interests of nations and peoples are shared.”
No, the interests of nations and people are NOT shared. I do not share the interests of Islamic jihadists who wish to impose Sharia Law and Islam on everyone on the globe, they do not share my interests in living my life as I see fit. I do not share the interests of socialists who wish to denigrate the individual, crushing him in the name of the collective. Socialists do not share my interest in the freedom to make a living and keep the fruits of my labors. I can’t quite tell if he was lying or fantasizing, it may be a combination of both. “A Bridge Too Far.” Caine and Hackman in the same movie. This is my thesis man! This is my closing argument! I CAN STOP WATCHING TV!

The rest of the speech is just as bad as the beginning was and I don’t have time to go thru it line by line mocking it all, so here is a round up of others who ripped it to shreds.

Paul Mirengoff correctly calls it sophomoric. I will admit my humor is too, but then I am not the President.

Mr. Mirengoff also notes the groveling Obama did

Scott Johnson of Powerline also comments on Obama’s ignorance and arrogance.

Anne Bayefsky gave National Review online her take on President Apology.

John Bolton, disliked by the UN and the left because he actually tried to work, takes apart our “post-American President”

Rich Lowry of NRO points out the naive view of Obama.

Brett D. Schaefer of NRO also points out the naive view.

Michael Ledeen of NRO argues against the naive view.

NRO posted the transcript of Charles Krauthammer’s take on the speech. “Between embarrassing and dangerous”

I will be posting tomorrow on the “Global Warming” portion of his speech tomorrow.

Anti-Semite Jimmy Carter calls someone else a racist. No Seriously he did. UPDATED

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2009 by thedoyle

So Jimmy Carter isn’t just one of the worst Presidents ever, he is also the worst President of the last 50 years (sorry Libs its true) and if it weren’t for his time with Habitat for Humanity he could be one of the worst persons of the last 50 years. He was a liar and a scum while running for office, saying what ever the crowd wanted to hear to get elected, look at his tenuous support for decriminalization of Marijuana. Lately he has taken on the role of Anti-Semite-in-Chief, blaming the Joooooos for everything wrong with the Middle East and America.

Now he is actually pointing to the sliver in someone else’s eye and calling Joe Wilson’s outburst a racist incident. Carter actually has the nerve to say that since there is still a lot of racism down south (he’s from the south he reminds us, so he knows) the criticisms of Obama are all based on racism. The funny thing about that is assuming there is a lot of racism down south (there’s a lot up north too, oh and east and west and it includes blacks hating other races, latinos hating other races, asians hating other races, basically every race hating every other race) Carter doesn’t turn his own point on himself, or has he forgotten the Klan hates the Joooooos too?

All along Liberals have gleefully used the racist smear at every chance they can at any objection to Obama and his policies. Think Obama is a socialist? (I do) That’s racist, even though socialism has nothing to do with race. Think Obama isn’t from this country? (I don’t) That’s racist, even though different country does not mean different race. Think Obama lies through his teeth? (I absofuckinlutely do) That’s racist. Some of the nitwit Liberals have vivid imaginations, New York Times Op-Ed Hag (I’m sure I will be accused of sexism for that comment) Maureen Dowd even has audible hallucinations because she said in her latest inane screed she heard the word “boy” after Joe Wilson said “You lie” after Obama…LIED. In the words of Football legend John Madden said, “Let’s go to the videotape.” See, no “boy” there but in the minds of Liberals what they imagine is as good as reality, which is why they often don’t ever actually meet reality.

But that’s just a crazy, bitter, lonely op-ed writer I hear you say. Well GA Rep. Hank Johnson, looking and sounding like Orlando Jones in Office Space claimed that Wilson’s outburst will logically lead to people putting on white hoods and riding the countryside terrorizing, and Wilson is the face of that. That guy was elected to replace Cynthia McKinney whose insanity I don’t even have time to go into, nice replacement there, Georgia.

As children, we are taught the story of the boy who cried wolf. The point was that when someone repeats a false charge over and over their credibility is tarnished…and eaten by wolves too for some reason. Yet Liberals haven’t learned that lesson and continue to cry racism everywhere they can. What is funny to me is that often those same people are the ones to claim that the cry of Anti-Semite is over used and applied unfairly to those who have legitimate criticisms of Israel and Israeli policies. So I will admit I don’t have any real proof that Carter is “in his heart” an anti-Semite but he and others like Dowd and Johnson have no proof either about what Wilson really thinks or protesters really think or what I really think.

I will tell you what I really think, I hate everyone equally.

So if we are all going to be called racists no matter what we do then we may as well work hard to vote Obama out of office anyway. If you are damned if you do, damned if you don’t…you may as well do.

Scream, away Liberals.

UPDATES:
Victor David Hanson also writes a good column on this. Check it out.

John Hinderaker at Powerline notes the Rasmussen poll that shows that perhaps the cries of wolf…er racism are hurting the screamers

Rich Lowry teaches you how to give a speech like Obama

Thomas Sowell calls Obama Charlatan-in-Chief, Liberals will be calling this black man a racist somehow at some point for opposing Obama.

Enjoy the Veal.

Its War

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2009 by thedoyle

Yesterday was a day of remembrance and I tried to stay out of any political fights, I failed at the end of the day but ah well. I am only human. I did manage to hold off my anger at seeing some of the news articles that were on the web yesterday and I also held off commenting on Obama’s 9/11 decision to make yesterday a National Day of Service and his Proclamation that went along with it.

Obama says in his Proclamation:
“We must apprehend all those who perpetrated these heinous crimes, seek justice for those who were killed, and defend against all threats to our national security.”

As Andrew McCarthy at National Review Online correctly points out:
“No, Mr. President, these are acts of war. What’s “heinous” is not to see that. And these acts of war, we have learned, happen when we treat such atrocities as if they were mere crimes. It emboldens our enemies to know that we won’t defend ourselves vigorously. How shameful to pick today of all days to display for all to see — including our enemies — that we’ve forgotten that lesson. I shudder to think what it will take to relearn it.”

The Left of this Country has never quite gotten it. Each time we were attacked during the Clinton Administration, it was treated as a crime and each time it had no effect on our enemies planning future attacks. After 9/11, the Bush Administration realized it was a war and treated it that way, and the Left still didn’t get it. They still wanted to call it a crime, they still wanted to treat it as a crime and the few times they used the word “war” was to call Bush and Cheney “war criminals.” (See they still managed to tie-in crime)

If the Left wants to prove they are serious about National Security for a change, why not take the first step and show the rest of us you understand the difference between crime and war.
