Obama's Gaffe Meter Is Pegged!
This young fellow is prone to mistakes which he seems to not even know are potential problems!
From Ed Morrissey at Hot Air""How many times did Quayle misspell potato before the American media and popular culture proclaimed him an idiot? We can add this to Obama’s existing list of gaffes and blunders: * The Selma March in 1965 did not contribute to his birth in 1961. * Kansas tornadoes in May 2007 killed 12 people, not “ten thousand”. * Afghans do not speak Arabic. * Misunderstanding Memorial Day, and then claiming to see “fallen heroes” in the Memorial Day audience. * Same day: putting Auschwitz in western Germany, not Poland. * “57 states”.Again … how many times did Quayle misspell potato? (via The Corner)"
The entire story by "Capt. Ed" IS RIGHT HERE!!!
Indeed One Potato, Two Potato.....etc.
F-O-U-N-D!!! - Obama's 10 NEW States!
Right after he proclaimed he had visited 57 of our United States...apparently with only three to go.....there were a lot of Oohs & Aahs!
Now DJ Drummond at Wizbang has found the names of our added states.....JUST TAKE A LOOK & YOU'LL SEE THE TRUTH OF IT!
Guess we have to see what the leftists present!THEN WE KNOW their ideas much more clearly!
GIT YOUR A-C-O-R-N-S Together?????
Love the fact, and hate the delivery!THUS WE SEE!
Got it dude?
The Duchess and I went to an Elks State Convention this past weekend....in Orlando. I was required to attend as I am now Lodge Secretary. We did the meeting/hospitality thing, and enjoyed as much as you can in such an environment.
Then things went horribly wrong!
Saturday evening, about 5:30 pm, Duchess joined one of our friends in seeking sustenance in another hospitality suite. The friend returned, ashen-faced and said my Duchess had a problem. I moved quickly outside to find my love unable to swallow/keep anything down, etc.
After a 911 call, and a quick trip to the Disney hospital (we were at a Disney-Orlando resort) Duchess and I had to wait for hours. She had a piece of steak lodged in her valve between esophagus and stomach. A long wait produced a G. I. doc who proceeded to use a scope to remove the offending meat and do a bit of repair.
We left and got back to our resort at 4:45 am.....
Duchess was in pain in her throat and having experienced the entire thing while awake. What a horrendous thing!
She is now recovered.
I aged 10 years in the face of the happenings.
It is quite nice that Disney had such a service available at their site. (Celebration Hospital)
I can now breathe normally!
Obama Knows NO Bounds On Lying!
I GUESS NOT!!!!
My Family Freed The Jews.....ER....Or Not!!!!!
Obamamania knows no bounds!AND THEN SOME!!!!
My God, but are there any reasons to trust Obama? If so, I am bereft of those items!
I Am Republican - Therefore I Will Win, Even If My Party Loses!!!
GOP Denial!"Voters are tired of buying a GOP package and finding a big-government liberal agenda inside. What we need is not new advertising, but truth in advertising."
Thus speaks Tom Coburn.....HIS ENTIRE STORY IS HERE!
Truth sometimes escapes those in denial. This is the year of GOP Denial, and Massive LOSS!
Would Some Democrats Answer This, Please!!!!
From The American Thinker & the "I Can Say It & No One Will Notice" department:"How much have the Democrats cost you at the pump?Marc SheppardSenator Chuck Schumer claims that coercing Saudi Arabia to increase oil production by 1 million barrels a day would drop the per barrel price by $25, saving Americans 62 cent per gallon at the gas pump. Yet, somehow, that same amount of oil coming from Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge would only ease oil prices by a penny.In a Senate floor speech he gave on May 13th, the New York Democrat insisted that: "If Saudi Arabia were to increase its production by 1 million barrels per day that translates to a reduction of 20 percent to 25 percent in the world price of crude oil, and crude oil prices could fall by more than $25 dollar per barrel from its current level of $126 per barrel. In turn, that would lower the price of gasoline between 13 percent and 17 percent, or by more than 62 cents off the expected summer regular-grade price - offering much needed relief to struggling families. "Schumer repeated these words almost verbatim when grilling oil company executives during yesterday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearings.Yet Schumer's daily magic number of 1 million barrels is the exact increase experts believe we would today be pumping through the Alyeska pipeline had Bill Clinton not vetoed ANWR drilling back in 1995. And even the most rabid anti-domestic-drilling Democrats don't take issue with that figure. So then, the increase he demands of "Bush's friends," the Saudis - which he claims would reduce prices by up to 25 percent -- is the exact amount he argued earlier this month would only "reduce the price of oil by a penny" were it coming from ANWR - eco-sacred breeding ground of the Porcupine Caribou.It doesn't take a Ph.D in economics to know that both figures can't be right.Nor one in Poli-Sci to know why they're so starkly different nonetheless."
Guess the old cliche about "hurting wildlife" will be dragged out, even though past history of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, and others disprove the argument.
Democrats.....always negative....except on plans to tax your ass off! They are VERY positive about that. They honestly propose that hiking YOUR taxes will help the oil situation. Oh, you say they are going to tax the oil companies...not you????? You must be government-educated. Where-o-where do you suppose the oil companies will get the money to pay those taxes? From some secret hidey-hole? & IF they do take the new taxes from profits then oil research comes to a halt and new fields/processes suffer. YOU LOSE!HINT! - New taxes are not the solution.....NEW sources/sources known, but denied, are the answers....along with a healthy program of research to find alternatives! It is NOT voodoo magic folks! It IS supply and demand. You cannot legislate supply and demand....history has proven it.
The GOP Battlecry! - OINK, OINK, OINK!!!!!
Forever mindful of their belief that their own constituents WANT Pork, for themselves, the GOP has joined the ranks of DEM congressional folk to support the new Farm Bill.
The House, in a show of complete ignorance of the popular theory that we need to CUT taxes, has voted to override President Bush's veto.
OINK forever is the battle cry!
The GOP will lose B-I-G this fall, and they will wonder why. Try this my GOP Congressfolk......WE, the VOTERS...DO NOT WANT MORE TAXES!
WE Want constraint!
What the hell are you thinking?
You believe your idiotic votes for the bill, because you got your district a new museum, are going to bring you votes??????
My God, I hope in November MOST of you are unemployed!
No Joy In Kennedy Diagnosis!
While Senator Ted Kennedy and I are polar opposites in both politics and life, I am among those who wish he and his family only the best in the face of a just-announced brain tumor which is inoperable.
No one on the face of the Earth....with any form of human compassion....would wish him otherwise.
Winning The War? - MSM Missing In Action!
You'd be surprised what is NOT being reported in the Antique Media!
Ralph Peters asks:"DO we still have troops in Iraq? Is there still a conflict over there?If you rely on the so-called mainstream media, you may have difficulty answering those questions these days. As Iraqi and Coalition forces pile up one success after another, Iraq has magically vanished from the headlines.Want a real 'inconvenient truth?' Progress in Iraq is powerful and accelerating."
What ever happened to the stories of losing, and the absolute storyline of civil war?
Peters' complete story is in The New York Post.
What blatant dishonesty by the media. I am once-again reminded of an old friend's favorite statement...."The truth shall set you free; as long as it is YOUR truth!"
This upstart freshman Senator has indicated that engaging Iran's leader....IS JUST FINE!
He is bereft of any judgement.
Obama is without support from any political/military person!
BUT, He has supporters......The Main Stream Media. They simply L-O-V-E this guy. He can do no wrong. That, perhaps, explains the fact that when he states we have 57 states....they take a pass! He is "Allowed" to be stupid!
Guess what would have followed if McCain had stated he had visited 57 states!
There would have been a media furor of the 1st water.
Where is the MSM......In the tank for Obama.
We have not seen the entire picture yet folks! These media folks will claim ANY attack against Obama as "Racist".....Gar-un-teed! We will live with this until election Tuesday!
The question is....will the American electorate awake to this deception and vote for a President who can continue to STOP Islamic terrorists....OR, will they vote for the ghost who promises ALL things to EVERYONE!....supported by YOUR NEW TAXES!??????
One of my favorite writers is Victor Davis Hanson. He writes to the GOP over at Pajamas Media:"A Simple Conservative MessageThere is a lot of anguish among Republicans as they look at the dismal polls and the even more depressing performance of their candidates in various preliminary House races. New books and prophets forecast an end to conservatism, and a need to formulate a new sort of muscular liberalism to meet new challenges. Expect more such nostrums if Barack Obama wins in the fall.What mystifies is the paralysis of Republicans and their impotent protestations that “Bush did it”. The truth is that Congressional Republicans, responsible for turning principles into governance, deserve to lose—unless they craft clear positions that won’t be compromised and then offer them as alternative choices to the voters this fall."
His message is clear. Why-O-Why do the GOP members of Congress not see what message wins? Do they pander only to themselves, and feel secure in their own district and thus not join in the frey?
Read the complete article by Victor Davis Hanson here!
The detail in his analysis is quite awakening.
Perhaps the time is here to form a "New GOP?"
Mexican Drug Cartels to Police: "Join Us Or Die!"
The situation in Mexico is deteriorating, not improving. Law and order are breaking down.
The drug cartels, utilizing our "open border" to import drugs into the USA, are in control of most areas along the border.FOXNews has the story.
This begs the question....If we closed the border and the drug shippers could not get through do you suppose the cartels would move elsewhere and leave Mexico, particularly along the border, a good bit safer?
Just a thought.
A Praise For Bush!
I have written frequently about my problems with President Bush and his actions/beliefs. Now it is time to salute some of his work.
Speaking before athe World Economic Forum in Egypt he spoke these very, very important words which should be answered by Islamic folk:"In our democracy, we would never punish a person for owning a Koran. We would never issue a death sentence to someone for converting to Islam. Democracy does not threaten Islam or any religion. Democracy is the only system of government that guarantees their protection."
His entire speech was explored at LITTLE GREEN FOOTBALLS.
Perhaps we would be well-served to seek an answer from our local Imams about their view of the quoted paragraph. In fact, if the main stream media were unbiased, this would be a natural for them. Wanna bet on it happening?
BUSH - Officially Neutered!
The Saudis have once-again dictated to the United States what will be in OIL.....
George W. Bush is suckin the hind, you-know-what!
This President has lost any force upon the Islamic group running O-I-L!
Bush is a small sheep, running around trying to act like a force of power when he has NONE!
He lost it all when he denied his own electorate. He will fade quickly. Despite the war achievements (lessened greatly by his failure to have a follow-up plan!)
GWB.....may he rest in peace....
The Republicans Simply DO NOT Get it!
They are obtuse....they are off0base....they will L-O-S-E by a wide margin!
Michelle Malkin nails it IN THIS PIECE!
I am a GOP for many years who leans Libertarian. The GOP is not even close to finding their soul after 2006, and as a result they will be soundly drubbed by the DEMs in the November elections. They simply do not care!
What happened to the "Conservative GOP" which I supported?
Skeletons Only Matter IF You Are NOT A Media Favorite!
This is approaching the absurd........
Obama has more skeletons in his closet than any politician I ever heard of (well, excepting Al Sharpton!) but the media just do not see them.
From Little Green Footballs this list!
You really, really need to read it!
Obama: "I Never Said I'd Meet With Iranian President....Before I Said I'd Meet With Him....and I've Never Said That Since!
Obama is going to kill himself with twists before the election.....He'll make Kerry look like the ever-truthful George Washington......HOT AIR has the story.....
I personally cannot wait for the campaign to begin. McCain need do exactly what he seems to be doing.......NOTHING! Obama will foist himself on his own pitard!
Amateurs always get the job done.....just not like they'd like it to be!
Obama Knew...But He Lied!
Oh Yeah, this Illinois liar knew....He just does not TELL THE TRUTH!
Most of the time......
Can the voters tell????
I really hope so!
Obama Knew.....ALL ALONG!
Wright said; Obama Listened.....
NOW he denies............B. S.!The Facts are undeniable!
Except for the "Obamassiah" folk, of course!
He ain't GOD folks, but he'd have you B-E-L-I-E-V-E!!!!!!
I hope America is NOT that dumb! I really, really do!
Well, If You SERIOUSLY Want To Hurt Me.....I Q-U-I-T!
The troops of Al-Sadr are quiting.......Because they are under fire and might lose their entire arsenal, and all their men!
WOW.....What a choice!
Guess they would have fought on, except for the losing thing!
The fact is we are a namby-pamby society of PC idiots......
Read this and then decide if I am right!
There are African Americans,
Native Americans, etc.
.....And then there are just -
Somepass me on the street
and sneer in my direction.
TheyCall me "White boy,"
You say that whites commit a lot
of violence against you,
so why are the ghettos the most
dangerous places to live?
Theyhave the United Negro College Fund.
They have Hispanic History Month.
They have Martin Luther King Day.
They have Asian History Month.
They have Black History Month.
They have Cesar Chavez Day.
They have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.
They have Yom Hashoah.
They have Kawanza.
They have the NAACP.
If we had WET
(White Entertainment Television)
If we had a White Pride Day
....You would call us racists.
If we had the White History Month
.....We'd be racist.
If we had any organization for only whites
to "advance" OUR lives,
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,
a Black Chamber of Commerce,
and then we just have the plain
Chamber of Commerce.
Wonder who pays for that?
If we had a college fund that only gave
white students scholarships
.....You know we'd be racists.
There are over 60 openly-proclaimed
Black-only Colleges in the US,
yet if there were "White-only Colleges"
....THAT would be a racist college.
In the Million-Man March,
you believed that you were
marching for your race and rights.
If we marched for our race and rights,
.....You would call us racists
You are proud to be black,
brown, yellow and red,
and you're not afraid to announce it.
But when we announce our white pride
.....You call us racists.
You rob us,
and shoot at us.
But, when a white police officer
shoots a black gang member
or beats up a black drug-dealer
who is running from the LAW and
posing a threat to ALL of society
.....You call him a racist.
I am proud.
.....But, you call me a racist.
Why is it that only
can be racists?
Guess that explains my feelings.......tell me yours!
I Got Your Swiss Army Knife!
I have, for many years, carried an abbreviated version of the classic Swiss Army Knife. Mine has a toothpick, knife, small....fairly useless tweezers, a small flat-blade screwdriver, etc.
But THIS ONE takes the cake! How about A HARPOON & A FLAME THROWER????
Wonder what it weighs!
Do you need a "Carry Permit"?....Will it fit in your pocket?....
These are serious questions folks!
Ben Stein....Idiocy in Perspective!
The man has lost it!!!!!!!GO-READ-BE REALLY, REALLY AFRAID!
Ben is in the crowd of "Lost-IT"Boy, oh, boy is he lost!
WE NEED THESE ILLEGALS!
Just check their CARBON FOOTPRINTS!
What a help they are to our economy!
Oh, by the way, did you see where they have higher crime rates by multiples; kill people in accidents while driving etc.
Oh, right, we are NOT supposed to highlight that as these illegals are immune to exposure to the light of truth!
His "Bitter Half"?????
Like it or don't. Obama is an absolute winner after the votes of Tuesday. He picked up votes over the Hildabeast! He did so in fine fashion.
He has a cross to carry......Michelle, his wife of the many "I Hates".......
Let me see....LIABILITY, woman is thy name....
This woman could easily derail the Obamania/Messiah cult and drop him like a hot potato.
She seems to be a black "Hillary-2" in terms of hubris....
Ya Better Watch Out, Ya Better Not Pout......
Israel's gonna git cha, and your gonna shout!
The Iranians are apparently getting closer to production of things that go BOOM!
Yaakov Katz & Herb Keinon report ON The Possible Future!!!!!
Israel will NOT allow Iran to have NUKES! It is that simple. Look at the Syrian attempt.
Go You Guys!
The US lacks the nerve and fortitude under GWB or any of his three possible replacements to do the dirty work.......well, possibly McCain will do it, but I doubt it!
Multiculturalism Causes Failure In War On Terrorism
That is a big though around which to wrap one's mind.
Writing at American Thinker blog, Joseph Myers does a good job of centering upon the problem:"Submission to Multiculturalism
Dr. Bernard Lewis, speaking recently at a luncheon and conference in Washington DC, noted that the two greatest shortcomings to understanding the Middle East are the "orthodoxy" of "political correctness and multiculturalism" and the reality that in the face of those driving ideologies, too many sworn to defend have proven themselves wilting lilies.
This new "no jihad policy" is the greatest of example.
Let's dissect the government message to show not only its folly, but factual errors that point to a lack of strategic comprehension and due diligence amounting to the level of an ethical failing.
An MSNBC article discussing this policy said this on the meaning of Jihad:
"For example, while Americans may understand "jihad" to mean "holy war," it is in fact a broader Islamic concept of the struggle to do good, says the guidance prepared for diplomats and other officials tasked with explaining the war on terror to the public."
That is wrong; it is in error. It is incompetently derived information.
Recall Patton famous exclamation: "Rommel I read your damn book".
This is the book our counter-terrorism communicators need to read. This is what sacred Islamic Law says on jihad:
"o9.0 - Jihad. Jihad means to wage war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion. [italic emphasis in original]"... The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus (def: b7) is such Koranic verses as: (1) "Fighting is prescribed for you" (Koran 2:216); (2) "Slay them wherever you find them" (Koran 4:89); (3) "Fight the idolators utterly" (Koran 9:36); ... I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for rights of Islam over them. (Umdat al-Salik p.599)"
Irrespective of the polemics, this is the only definition of jihad in Islamic law, this is the only controlling and binding definition of jihad for any Muslim.
So are we now to deduce from the media reporting that the US government, expects for example, those in military service to accept that waging "war against non-Muslims ...to establish the religion" is a "struggle to do good." Does our government consider jihad a "good" thing. Am I to accept that jihad is good for America?
Is this how far we have come with multiculturalism?"
The topic is a bit convoluted, but boils down to a simple fact that you cannot placate those whose goal is your complete elimination as a nation and way-of-life. There is no middle ground on which to complete your placation of the single-minded jihadist!
Myers complete, lengthy...but interesting post CAN BE READ HERE!

Chicago! Bob Owens reports....."Fifty-four shootings in two weekends. Shot-up bodies recovered in groups of three and five. Is this Ramadi? Basra? No.Welcome to Chicago.After a recent outbreak of gun-related violence, Mayor Richard Daley is now pushed into supporting a plan by new Police Superintendent Jody Weis to arm 13,000 Chicago police officers with assault rifles. Depending on how many weapons are eventually deployed, this may develop into the largest militarization of police patrol officers in United States history. If the department arms 10,000 of their officers with M4s, the police will have 9,900 more assault rifles in Chicago than the U.S. Marines presently have in Fallujah, Iraq."

Ain't this just peachy?READ IT ALL HERE!!!
Well, I guess that answers the question of our soldiers security in Iraq!
Just DO NOT

WSJ - "Windfall Profits For Dummies"
This is one that irks me no end. People standing around the water cooler/bar/whatever, and expounding upon the "evil oil companies"....
The Wall Street Journal, in a Review & Outlook
article today, sums the situation well: "This tiff over gas and oil taxes only highlights the intellectual policy confusion – or perhaps we should say cynicism – of our politicians. They want lower prices but don't want more production to increase supply. They want oil "independence" but they've declared off limits most of the big sources of domestic oil that could replace foreign imports. They want Americans to use less oil to reduce greenhouse gases but they protest higher oil prices that reduce demand. They want more oil company investment but they want to confiscate the profits from that investment. And these folks want to be President?"
Can I get an A-MEN?
Get a clue folks. If you doubt the above, then you need desperately to read the entire article IN THE JOURNAL!
and Clinton are really scary. Given half a chance they will deliver on their rhetoric which appeals mostly to those educated in our "Government Schools", as Neal Boortz
labels them. The fact is many folks always believe higher prices are the work of evil companies. The solution; soak those bastards! Yes, and then we'll have higher prices, and even less fuel to go around.
Idiocy in the name of getting votes. That in summary is all it amounts to. Independence from overseas control....but not by drilling in ANWR
(where we already set the land aside for oil exploration), and not by drilling off our coasts....anywhere....oh, and don't even think about new refineries, or windmills located where "I" sail my yacht! Just wave a wand and become independent of the oil countries. WAIT, maybe we can subsidize corn production for ethanol...yeah, that's
the ticket....the added benefit will be our population, long obese, will lose weight because of the disappearing
food supply! WOW! are we smart, or what?
Temporary Cold Before The Hot; Yeah, That's The Ticket!
Now the excuses begin.....leave it up to a very German group to come up with the answer to the fact we're cooling, not warming as AlGore, et al have warned......
It is caused by TEMPORARY COOLING BEFORE THE WARMING...
Wouldn't you know it. The GW freaks are already working hard to insure their thesis continues unabated in the face of cooling.
This phase will last about one to two years and then the entire GW thing will be dropped like a hot potato....either that or the GW crowd will begin crowing loudly that their efforts halted the warming and they single-handedly saved Mother Earth!
From The POGO Dept. of "We Has Met The Enemy & They Is Us!"
Robert Samuelson writes at WashingtonPost.com: "It may surprise Americans to discover that the United States is the third-largest oil producer, behind Saudi Arabia and Russia. We could be producing more, but Congress has put large areas of potential supply off-limits. These include the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and parts of Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico. By government estimates, these areas may contain 25 billion to 30 billion barrels of oil (against about 30 billion barrels of proven U.S. reserves today) and 80 trillion cubic feet or more of natural gas (compared with about 200 tcf of proven reserves).What keeps these areas closed are exaggerated environmental fears, strong prejudice against oil companies and sheer stupidity. Americans favor both "energy independence" and cheap fuel. They deplore imports -- who wants to pay foreigners? -- but oppose more production in the United States. Got it? The result is a "no-pain energy agenda that sounds appealing but has no basis in reality," writes Robert Bryce in "Gusher of Lies: The Dangerous Delusions of 'Energy Independence.' "
How true. What idiocy is it to allow other countries to influence our economy by providing us items we already possess?
Here is Samuelson's full story for further enlightenment.
When will we bring common sense to Washington and our hallowed halls?
