Hugo To Fidel: “Careful Or We’ll Be On Obama’s Right!”

3 06 2009

(POST UPDATED BELOW) Many a truth is said in jest via Al-Reuters:

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday that he and Cuban ally Fidel Castro risk being more conservative than U.S. President Barack Obama as Washington prepares to take control of General Motors Corp.

“Comrade Obama! Fidel, careful or we are going to end up to his right,” Chavez joked on a live television broadcast.

Holy $#*^ he called him “comrade.”  If Rush Limbaugh did that, MSNBC would start talking about oxycontons within the hour.

UPDATE: From the incredibly liberal Pravda, a scary view from the outside, that we should all take into account because we need to pay attention to the rest of the world:

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”.  Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes.  Should we congratulate them?

I’m wondering if the American left will ever allow conservatives to call them “socialists” without smearing their character and marginalizing their reputations in some sort of reverso-witch-hunt maneuver, which ends up typecasting the accuser.

All these international lefties made me realize; ripping liberals for being Marxists is kind of like me talking about your mom.  I really can’t get away with it unless we go legit she’s my mom.

Obama: “The Fundamentals Of The Economy Are Sound, Not Strong.”

17 03 2009

Yesterday an old-style reporter asked Robert Gibbs about John McCain’s the White House’s new stance that, “the fundamentals of the economy are strong sound.”

Gibbs tried out his Obama-impression, but fell flat in the semantics game, when he insisted “strong” and “sound” are fundamentally different.

Someday, a wise-ass reporter might ask if Obama inherited a sound economy.

Recall, McCain was ahead of Obama at the time of the Lehman Brothers collapse and his untimely comments were used by smear merchants in the corporate media to show him as, “out of touch.”

How many houses does that guy have anyways?

This, along with his hasty support for the bailout (TARP), when Obama was merely, “there if we need him” proved to be the most pivotal moment of the campaign.

By the way, Obama is now fear-mongering on behalf of bailouts, and McCain’s pathetic ass is against them.

And shocker…BO’s numbers are stinking up the joint.

“Did somebody say joint?”

Flashback vids are here to bring you there.

Chris Matthews lampooned McCain for saying “the fundamentals of the economy are strong” 22 times.

The epitome of a politician, Barack Obama, ridiculed McCain for the statement and made this campaign ad during his adorable class warfare faze.

Flip to 57 seconds of MSNBC’s McCain bash to see Obama on 9/15/08 say, “we just woke up to financial disaster and this morning he (McCain) said, ‘the fundamentals of the economy are strong.’  Senator McCain, what economy are you talking about?”  Then, liar-in-chief says, “you all remember Phil Gramm, he’s the guy who said, ‘we’re just going through a mental recession’ and called the United States of America, a ‘nation of whiners.’ You can’t make this stuff up. It’s like a Saturday Night Live routine”

I always get a kick out of the crowd whining when Obama tells them they’ve been called whiners but hey, at least Gramm didn’t call us a “nation of cowards.”

Here’s Glenn Beck with a round-up.

Tigerhawk compliments Instapundit.

Glenn Reynolds makes a nifty, if somewhat lawyerly, point: If the economy is still fundamentally strong, what are the actual problems inherited by the Obama administration? That said, I much prefer the president talking it up than talking it down, and if it takes a little hypocrisy to make that happen I’m all for giving him a pass. The outrage, of course, is that so many in the media credulously parroted the Obama campaign’s talking points last fall. But even that is only the “usual” outrage.

Thanks Tigerhawk, back to Adam at OutOfTheBlu,

“Hawaiian born or not, this guy is a freaking fraud and the people who haven’t figured that out, are even worse.”





Obama Hires Another “Brilliant” Mortgage Criminal

26 11 2008

Robert Rubin is knee deep in Citibank junk loans.  Surprising they’d get together since Obama once sued CItibank to get more entrenched in the subprime market. Still we think he’ll fit right in.





Cherry-Picking Evidence Of The Financial Crisis

25 11 2008

We’ve all heard about Bush “cherry-picking” evidence so he could attack Iraq, be called a lying war-monger, and ultimately obliterate his own legacy.  I’d be thrilled to see the mainstream press publish some articles on politicians who are a little too excited to impose socialist stimulus plans.  I know.  Fat chance.

Is it wrong to think Obama, given his Alinsky training of “rubbing raw resentments of the people,” isn’t exactly devastated at the current state of economic collapse?  Come to think of it, is there a politician who could be more thrilled with the opportunity it provides?

Ok, so trying to be fair…If Bush was excited about 9/11 because he could line the pockets of his military-industrial buddies, and smash Hussein (Saddam) in the face.  Then what is Obama excited about?





Perfect Storm To Secure Socialist Agenda. Reshape America.

24 11 2008

“What we are talking about is a golden political opportunity for politicians to use the current financial crisis to fundamentally change an economy that has been successful for more than two centuries, so that politicians can henceforth micro-manage all sorts of businesses and play Robin Hood, taking from those who are not likely to vote for them and transferring part of their earnings to those who will vote for them.”

Man, Thomas Sowell is smart! Why don’t more people know him? Oh yeah, he’s a black conservative.
