Ok look, admittedly, Obama played a big role in the inception of OOTB. His election, motivated me to create something instead of just reading and emailing worthy links. However, I never wanted it to become a monotonous arena which only fielded an Obama bashfest.
From comments and reader emails, it’s pretty clear a lot of different types of homies are in the OOTB audience, including Obama voters. I intend to keep it that way by continuing to point to an array of topics, my favorite being the ones which clearly display the pervasive sickness of modern liberalism, a mental disorder that often renders “Onion” spoofs believable and mundane.
So, I must explain that the lack of recent posts isn’t stemming from a dearth of relevant news stories, but rather an inundation. Simply put, I’m overwhelmed, and it’s by design. The speed and voracity of Obama’s change is not only blowing my mind, it’s depressing me. I just can’t keep up, and if a wonk can’t keep up, what is everybody else supposed to do?
It should come as no surprise, really. The man was the most liberal member of the Senate even though he didn’t do anything there but skip votes and run for president. Opponents were lambasted as McCarthyites for judging him by his friends, something every parent rightfully does with their children. And of equal importance, the philosophy of overwhelming the system to confuse the masses and institute rapid and sweeping change is undoubtedly near and dear to his heart.
Remember, “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
Bush didn’t even say that, and people explain the entire War on Terror on a similar premise, yet as we’ve said, no one will accuse Obama of cherry-picking or utilizing the sitch for personal missions.
We’ve already discussed Obama’s endless “politikol kapital.” We showed you his alarmingly aggressive 1st week in office which saw him pass more executive orders than the previous seven combined presidents. We’ve endured shocking levels of corruption, lack of vetting, poor judgment and a cabinet chock full of lobbyists. We took note that his radical nominees simply disappeared…from Socialist websites. And, we also posted his consolidation of power in rendering the census, a W.H. jurisdiction. We’ll add all that to the consideration, but omit it from the following updates.
It’s crucial to remember that we were told the worldly and intellectual Obama would restore alliances and help America in her foreign and domestic pursuits.
The opposite is happening.
Literally each one of these could become its own post.
Kyrgyzstan announced in Moscow that the U.S. air base in Manas, an absolutely crucial NATO conduit into Afghanistan, will be closed in spite of previous commitments to President Bush.
Pakistan released the AQ Khan, a scientist who helped Pakistan develop a nuclear weapon and allegedly leaked atomic secrets to North Korea, Iran and Libya.
Obama privately supports “sharia law for peace” deal with the Taliban in Pakistan.
The Norks are threatening a nuke test after recently backing away.
The Euros are threatening a trade war over, “buy American” clauses in the “Stimulus” bill.
Europe ignores Obama’s demands for more troops in Afghanistan.
Obama has infuriated many Brits by refusing to keep the bust of Winston Churchill in the White House.
Yemen, the proposed home of a new rehab center for Gitmo victims, released 170 terrorists.
Al-Qaeda’s leader in Yemen claims the organization possesses nuclear weapons.
Obama humiliated America on Arab TV, ended sanctions on Iran and subsequently Ahmadinejad said he “welcomes the kind of change U.S. President Barack Obama offered.” Strange! So do liberals!
Obama has waived sanctions on Syria.
Iran launched a satellite into space
Iran carried out computer tests on its Bushehr nuclear power plant in preparation for its launch.
Obama’s State Department said that Hugo Chavez’s president-for-life referendum, was “for the most part … a process that was fully consistent with democratic process.”
Obama’s participation would be disgusting enough, but the deliberate silence at, “Israel is racist” and holocaust denials at the rabidly anti-Semitic Durban conference planning sessions is sickening. Even Italy and Britain are threatening a boycott.
Obama quietly restored Samantha Power to his inner circle. She has questioned the Jewish Lobby and many think she has called for US troops in Israel to enforce peace with Palestinians, while subscribing to the anti-Semitic, “Walt-Mearsheimer” theory.
And his new Intel (spy) Chief, Chas Freeman Jr., blames Jews for the Jihad, and has published a “vicious anti-Israel” journal through an Arab lobbyist group which he was president of.
Obama cut military spending and directed defense officials to sign a pledge stating that they will not share the 2010 budget with individuals outside the federal government…transparently shady!
Obama has awarded Hamas another $900Mil.
On the homefront, things are equally depressing.
Fearmongering and straight up lies are being used to pressure American’s into the disastrous “stimulus” bill which unlike the War in Iraq, is hasty and unilateral.
Many are worried about the hidden Socialist health care portions of the new “stimulus” bill.
Obama was negligent to the plight of a frozen, starving, Kentucky. Failed to utilize FEMA even after the state’s entire Nat’l guard was called up. Maybe cuz it’s not a “chocolate city.”
Six federal camps are on the horizon as H.R. 645 moves forward and Obama’s “civilian nat’l security force” takes shape.
Obama plans to resettle 100k Iraqis in America and thousands of Palestinians…What could go wrong?
Obama’s race-obsessed, clearly incapable, AG called American” a nation of cowards.”
The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to act for the first time to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases…so try not to exhale.
Obama secretly shut down his Bush’s system for reviewing regulations and realigned and expanded two key White House policymaking bodies.
Obama secretly backtracked from campaign pledges to small businesses by removing quotations (without update) from his website, a trend bloggers noticed long ago.
Obama has not commented on the purported $550Bil electronic run on banks on September 11th, that was seemingly accidentally leaked by Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa., in a CSPAN interview.
Some things are reassuring for Jihad-wary conservatives like these stories:
But as I take solace in the realistic stances Obama has suddenly taken on national defense, will mainstream liberals notice that his word is completely useless?
Finally, most of these disasters have occurred in the last week or ten days. We’re a month into this thing. The trajectory is down right frightening.
There’s more, of course…and you know I’ll deliver when it’s time.
