Martyrdom Awaits You

I found the following people engaging because it highlighted something from the President’s very weird appearance on Comedy Central and I think reveals another truth about the man.

And that got me to thinking, always a bad thing… 🙂

Remember this from 2009: “I’d rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president,” he told ABC’s “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer.

What happens when you can’t be a “good” one-term president because you’re so hated by the public that your party is tossed out on it’s jackass.

And your Narcissistic Personality Disorder and your extreme Ideology prevents you from moderating your own hubris.

You become a martyr for the cause!!

The Progressive Far-Left Socialist Cause. The wet dream of Liberals since the 1920’s.

The analysis of the president’s much publicized, bizarre appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart continues. Mostly due to the fact it wasn’t the jovial, yuck-fest everyone anticipated. Instead the “interview” was cutting and revealing — akin to a scalping.

It may have been the toughest interview the president has endured since he was elected. Obama-friendly Stewart turned critic, asking the question about Washington we all want the answer to: what happened to that change thing Obama promised. This is not the question the president needs to be struggling to answer less than a week from the mid-term elections.

Obama’s response: Wait for it . . . no, really you have to wait for it. This evoked laughter. In fact, the intermittent periods of laughter appeared to be directed at the president and not with him. You can’t blame the audience for being disrespectful. What he was saying was laughable.

The president, rather audaciously, admitted to abandoning those lofty principles of change he expounded in 2008 to play the Washington game. He justified it as a show of martyrdom: the American people were in a time of crisis and need. This ends-justifies-the-means tactic defines Americans’ disdain for Washington.

The quintessential cynic Stewart unwittingly exposed the reason for Obama’s unpopularity — not the health-care bill or the auto bailouts — but his orphaning of hope and change. Stewart managed to highlight what Americans have discovered: we elected another politician and not a principled leader. (Jeff Sural)

So who thinks the media will turn on a dime and suddenly Obama will be made the object of sympathy and that he will be shown to be fighting the good fight and battling overwhelming evil (aka Republicans) and valiantly striving for the betterment of the American People against a mean,old,nasty Congress that wants grandma to be homeless,Social Security-less, and eating dog food with her dead sister dentures!! <<“Rocky” theme insert here>>.

So from Nov3, 2010 until Nov 2012 the media will be Burgess Meredith on the sidelines cajoling “Rocky” Barack to take down the evil enemy  Apollo Creed-Republicans (to be emblazoned by Sarah Palin and likely soon-to-be Speaker John Boehner).

He will be fighting the good fight to save you from the evil!

“David” Barack Vs. the Republican “Corporate” Goliath.

You though 2008 was a sycophantic  nightmare, just wait.

The Liberal media hasn’t even begun to suck. 🙂

The Ministry of Truth

“I’m sad to report today a death of a good friend to all of us…..Journalism, the once esteemed 4th estate of our nation and the protector of our freedoms and a watchdog of our rights has passed away after a long struggle with a crippling and debilitating disease of acute dishonesty aggravated by advanced laziness and the loss of brain function.”–Governor Mike Huckabee (2009)

Just days before the biggest election in my lifetime and you want to know where the Mainstream Media is?

Stumping for the Democrats and trying to smear the Republicans as best they can.

And The President?

He’s on Spanish Language radio telling hispanics to get to the polls to stop their “enemies” (aka non-socialist democrats).

In one recent example, on Monday President Obama urged Latinos to “punish our enemies” during a Univision broadcast.

“If Latinos sit out the election,” Obama said, “instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder . . . “

“He’s the president of the United States. The president is supposed to be the president of all the people, even those who disagree with his agenda and who disagree with him,” FOX’s Monica Crowley said.

He and the Media obviously don’t think so.

He’s only interested in his apparatchiks. Everyone else is an “enemy” of his State.

After all, the end justifies the means.

“The session of Congress now drawing to a close was the most productive in nearly half a century,” the AP’s Jim Abrams touted Monday.

On CBS’s Sunday Morning, correspondent Rita Braver applauded House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as “one of the most effective speakers in congressional history,” “a hero in some quarters,” and “the irresistible force who marshaled House Democrats to pass controversial administration policies — including the stimulus package, Wall Street reform, and health care.”

CBS’s Lesley Stahl popped up on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Monday to fret how the dreadful economy is hurting Obama’s image, as if his administration’s policies are thoroughly unrelated: ”He’s fighting an economy that just won’t give him anything….No credit. No credit at all for what he’s accomplished.”

The broadcast TV networks have systematically skewed their coverage against Republicans and the Tea Party, a new study by the Media Research Center finds. MRC analysts reviewed the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts from September 1 through October 25. Key findings:

■ Only conservative/Tea Party candidates cast as “extreme.” Congressional Democrats and President Obama are facing voters’ wrath because of their extreme agenda over the past two years: government-run health care; massive unsupportable spending; a proposed “cap-and-trade” tax on energy, higher income taxes, etc. But MRC analysts found 35 evening news stories which conveyed the Democratic spin point that conservative and Tea Party candidates are “extreme,” “fringe,” or “out of the mainstream,” vs. ZERO stories conveying the charge that left-wing Democrats are “out of the mainstream.”

■ Three times more “conservative” labels than “liberal” tags. Out of 62 ideological labels assigned by reporters, three-fourths (48, or 77%) were aimed at conservatives, vs. just 14 (23%) for liberals. Only Republicans faced extreme labels — both Joe Miller and Christine O’Donnell were tagged as “ultra-conservatives” — with no Democrat ever branded an “ultra-liberal.”

CBS called Pennsylvania Republican Pat Toomey “conservative,” but Democrat Joe Sestak was not labeled as “liberal.” All of the networks called Christine O’Donnell a “conservative,” but none said her opponent, Chris Coons, was “liberal.” Most comically, CBS would not call loud-mouthed Florida Rep. Alan Grayson a “liberal,” but tagged his opponent Daniel Webster as “conservative.”

■ Adopting Democrats’ campaign agenda. The networks elevated contests meant to show Republicans in a poor light. While it’s not on anyone’s list of closest races, the networks devoted the most coverage to Delaware’s Senate race (15 evening news stories), emphasizing O’Donnell’s perceived gaffes. Next: the California Governor’s race (11 stories), emphasizing allegations against GOP nominee Meg Whitman. Rounding out the networks’ Top 5 were Senate races in Alaska, Nevada, and West Virginia, each the focus of four stories.

The Democrats’ strategy to salvage the 2010 campaign was to distract voters from their record over the past two years and paint their opponents as wacky extremists. Win or lose, the Democrats got a lot of help from their friends in the supposedly objective “news” media. (MRC)

And mind you, many on the left have called Obama “timid”.  Now that’s scary!!

“Over and over again, we have moved forward an agenda that is making a difference in people’s lives each and every day,” Obama said on Comedy Central last night.

Delusion or something far more darkly Orwellian? You Decide.

“My hope is that those people are rewarded for taking those tough votes,” Obama said. “If they are, then I think Democrats will do fine on Election Day.”

I got my “reward” right here, Herr Obama… <<Censored>>

So I ask you to walk with me, and march with me, and join your voice with mine, and together we will sing the song that tears down the walls that divide us, and lift up an America that is truly indivisible, with liberty, and justice, for all.–Candidate Obama January 2008.

The Twilight Zone or Just an Orwellian Nightmare.

You Decide Next Tuesday,Nov. 2

But don’t expect the Mainstream Media to be  happy afterwards. 🙂

‘Twas The Night Before Christmas

WP: Vice President Biden presided over the 60-39, party-line vote, which brings Democrats closer than ever to realizing their 70-year-old goal of universal health coverage.

Notice the not-so-Freudian slip. UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE. 🙂

For the first time, most Americans would be required to obtain health insurance, either through their employer or via new, government-regulated exchanges. Those who can’t afford insurance plans would receive federal subsidies.

Subsidies paid for by?

You guessed it.

Us. Not Them.

Congrats.

It’s a Baby.

Vampire that is.

That if allowed to live will suck the life out of Everyone.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declared that: “We stand on the doorstep of history.”

Infamy more likely.

And after all, their place in “history” and it’s immortality was far more important than the will of the People.

But since the liberal control education I’m sure the Republicans will be to blame when this Frankenstein’s Monster rampages through The Village.

Republicans fought the Senate bill with every parliamentary weapon they could muster, raising a series of motions on that failed along party lines. The rhetoric grew more harsh as time ran short.

“From rationing care to infringing on the doctor-patient relationship, this government-run system will guarantee U.S. taxpayers a staggering tax burden for generations to come,” Grassley said on the Senate floor. The final bill, Grassley said, “doesn’t do any of these things that we set out to do at the beginning.”

No, Senator. It doesn’t (on the things they SAID were the goals).

A challenge to the Senate health bill’s constitutionality failed on Wednesday afternoon in a party-line vote.
Sens. John Ensign (R-Nev.) and Orrin Hatch’s (R-Utah) point of order arguing that the Senate bill is unconstitutional under the Interstate Commerce Clause and Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution failed in a 39-60 vote. (The Hill)

And even the vaunted CBO has recently admitted to an error in their calculations, the one’s Democrats have been touting (Sounds a bit Copenhaegn-y don’t it?)(FOX): The Congressional Budget Office said Sunday that the Senate health care bill would not reduce long-term federal deficits as much as previously estimated, acknowledging that it made an “error” in its original analysis.

In correcting the mistake, Elmendorf noted that projections for a bill 10-to-20 years down the road can be highly unreliable.

“The imprecision of these calculations reflects the even greater degree of uncertainty that attends to them,” he wrote.

But on getting it passed so that they could force the drugs down everyone’s throat so they can addict them and make it look like it’s for their own good, they did succeed.

So Far.

But as Yogi Berra would say, “It ain’t over ‘Till it’s over”.

The House and Senate versions are radically different.

But it’s now about pride of Ideology, and Party. Not actually helping people.

And the American People must rise up and pressure them before the final vote on whatever mutant form of Socialized Medicine comes out in the final product.

Make no mistake, all Democrats are Liberals. And all Liberals are Democrats.

It’s about Ideology.

It’s about Party.

It’s not about You.

It’s about Them.

Their egos. Their Pride. Their “historic moment”.

The ascendancy of the Socialist Liberal Nanny State. Where they control you from before birth to after death.

And they have complete contempt for you and the process as this example From The Hill shows:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) elicited perhaps the strongest reaction after he originally voted no on the health care reform bill he has crafted and ushered through the Senate for months.
Reid quickly threw up his arms in the air and bowed his head to his podium, drawing a hardy round of laughs from senators in the chamber. It’s not clear if Reid’s original vote was a mistake or a joke, but Reid said that he spent Wednesday night trying to think of ways to show some bipartisanship.

Yes, folks, bi-partisanship is a joke to Democrats.

Lest, you think the Fourth Estate, the mighty “journalist” was going to press the White House for answers, and askl tough questions, think again:

A press conference that began with White House press secretary Robert Gibbs announcing that since “last week we did a sort of happy hour briefing,” he thought “today we’d do sort of a brunch briefing,” got more trivial — and insulting by the minute.

What we got from America’s intrepid practitioners of First Amendment freedoms was a discussion about “a pink polka-dot shirt and a checkered tie.”

“What color are your socks today?” Gibbs asked one member of the press corps. Then it was on to the reporter “with the snappy blue tie and hopefully darker socks,” as Gibbs described his attire.

Not long after that came a question that must have kept C-SPAN junkies on the edge of their seats: “Does the president support Senator Akaka’s native Hawaiian government reorganization act, creating a native Hawaiian government within the state of Hawaii?”

There were jokes about cell phones going off — “Is somebody ordering a pizza?” Gibbs asked — and of equipment being noisily dropped — “Careful … this room isn’t paid for!” said Gibbs. “This is just a rental!” But there were no serious questions about what is contained in Congress’ worst-ever piece of legislation, rammed through in the middle of the night on a party-line vote.

We got touchy-feely questions like, “As the president is winding down this first year in office, as he looks back over this year, is he at the point now where he can say, this is kind of what I expected?”

Oh yes, and we learned that on the president’s upcoming vacation in Hawaii, “he will probably take the girls out for shaved ice.”

The whole thing is a joke to them.

Well, I’m not laughing, because it’s at MY EXPENSE.

When a question was asked about the president not discussing the government-run option for health reform with independent Sen. Joseph Lieberman, no answer was given because, said Gibbs, “if you’re looking back, it’s generally rehashing.”

Old News. We Won. Up yours. <<stick tongue out>>. Move on, nothing to see but a Jon Stewart Comedy Central routine. Next…

Reid during his final floor remarks said that many senators could hear (Teddy) Kennedy’s voice “ringing” in their ears.

I wonder if any of them heard Mary Jo Kopeckne?? 🙂

“This bill is a real threat to liberty because of the precedent that it sets on the federal government being able to tell individuals what to do,” said Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.).

But it’s not night fall yet.

Dusk maybe.

But not night fall.

The Dark Side hasn’t won’t quite yet, young Skywalker. 🙂

Though the Force is strong with The One.

They will ignore you, but keep it up, day after day.

Contact your local TV station news. Ask them why they don’t cover it properly.

It’s about Pressure people.

Comment early and often. 🙂

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through D.C.
Not a creature was stirring — except for sixty.
The health care bill made them wish they weren’t alive,
And they wanted Obama Claus soon to arrive.

The Dems were all anxious, they wanted to leave
For they know, in a year, six or seven will grieve.
The entire debate blew up in the Dems’ faces
And made their polls sink in all of the big races!

They don’t want to remember this nightmare existed,
Nor employ on constituents logic so twisted.
Harry Reid hid the bill, but I think this is it –
I will spell it all out with my rhyme and my wit:

There is no “public option,” progressives are crying
And distorting the CBO, Barry is lying
Mary Landrieu was bought off, but nobody cares
And Ben Nelson is pro-life — really, he swears by it

Medicare’s still insolvent, but we’re gonna slash it –
(But those evil Repukes are the ones who will smash it!)
The majority will says the bill is a clunker –
(But we’ve got cash for that, and the DNC bunker)

Pre-existing conditions? Irrelevant, now –
It’ll reduce our costs, though we can’t tell you how.
Tort reform was avoided with diligent care,
And we left state monopolies all standing there.

Now Obama Claus comes and he asks them to vote –
58, 59 — ah, at last he can gloat! –
For the ayes have it, sir, and the bill has been passed!
We have the damned health care reform here at last!

“Now Nelson! Now, Lincoln! Now, Pryor and Joe!
On, Evan! On, Landrieu! On, Baucus and Snowe!
To the top of the deficit, ceiling of debt!
We’re going to bankrupt the U.S.A. yet!”

I woke up the next morning and saw on TV
I got health care handouts — coming straight from D.C.!
Obama, I thought — you did all this for me?
“Think it costs lots right now? Just you wait ’til it’s free!”

Have a Merry Christmas. It may be your last.
