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.”

Finally John Kerry Explains His Idea Of A “Global Test”

11 03 2009

The msm continues to be outsourced as the Times of India informs us:

The United States is lining up billions of dollars in new economic and military aid to Pakistan despite reports that Islamabad is using American tax-payer money for deals with the Taliban and accounts of US arms ending up in the hands of the extremists.

Amid an ongoing review of the so-called Af-Pak policy initiated by the Obama administration, Washington, under pressure from influential Senator John Kerry among other lawmakers and lobbyists, is said to be considering a one-time $ 5 billion aid to Pakistan over and above the $ 1.5 billion annual package for ten years currently under review for passage through Congress. Releasing a report by the think-tank Atlantic Council on Wednesday, Kerry, who is also the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and is in a position to pilot the aid package, raised the prospect of a total collapse in Pakistan if it was not helped urgently.

Pakistan is indeed a scary place and the thought of John Kerry contributing to its future is down right nightmarish.







When Is A Door Not A Door?

29 01 2009

When it’s ajar the Oval Office window.

Brilliant Obama looked equally the fool as Bush when he couldn’t figure out the proper door to use to get back into the White House.

However there’s two remarkable differences in the similar cases.  Bush was duped by the existence of a door knob, however locked it was.  And Bush’s blunder will never be forgotten, whereas  Obama’s will never even be gotten.

I’ve Never Felt Like This About Someone

20 01 2009

On second thought, maybe I have.

Truth is, in 1999-2000, I hated George Bush for the motherloving President’s-son, silver-spoon, frat-boy, skull&bones, coke-blowin’,chimp-lookin’, oil-slurpin’-Texas bumpkin that I thought he was is was.

But soon thereafter, “respecting the office” meant, me caring for the man as I came to wonder how he somehow went to bed every night and believing that he actually was trying to help America, not just kill brown peoples.

Now, to review the duality and the crazy way that things work out…that if on 9/11/01 you were  told that American mainland wouldn’t be attacked again in 8 years, but that our next President would be named Barack Hussein Obama

Would you have said we won or lost?

Sorry was that ethnocentric of me?

So, Bush is now done but he’ll continue to write letters to every single family of fallen servicemen.  And supposedly bleeding heart liberals, like this A-hole Bruce Springsteen, can’t even find a single thing to thank him for.

Not a single thing.

Even in this crazy infinite world, where we can never truly know the answers to, “what if…”

They hate him like he was Saddam Hussein and it was 1998.

But it’s 2009.

Hussein (Saddam) is now a peaceful, secular victim to the crusading, genocidal war criminal and terrorist, George Bush.  Bush is so damned evil (how evil is he?) he’s so evil he inoculated the word, “Hussein” so Obama could use it as an attribute.  Bush actually opened the door for another man of perfectly opposite speaking ability, to come out of nowhere and enthrall hundreds of millions around the world with a single word.

“Change.”

See, you can’t predict anything in this madness.

Al Gore might have won Florida and gone on to invade Iraq, Saudi Arabia, AND IRAN. (Updated link here)

No?  That’s outrageous you say?

So, for a newer, wiser me and the President-I-didn’t-vote-for?

I hope and believe the office of the Presidency will sober any man right out of his partisanship.  The things that become known to him after his victory might explode normal human brains.

And so, being “blinded by my love for America,”  I already feel a bond with Obama in many respects, especially in light of recent burnt pictures of him in the Muslim world.

Importantly, 79% of Americans, meaning; over 60% of Republicans, are optimistic about an Obama Administration.  His numbers display a 20% advantage in the nation’s support over what Bush enjoyed in 2001, highlighted by this Newsbusters.org pic, taken at Bush’s inauguration.

bush-inauguration

The vast majority of Republicans are “country firsters” and realize success for Obama should mean success for America.

I’m willing to start anew and give him the benefit of the doubt until I see otherwise.  I have admonished the cognitive dissonance of liberals as they seemed to actively root for tragic milestones.  I’ll not do the same.  And, I’ll be more supportive of his domestic plans when I’m convinced he shares the belief that America is the most exceptional nation on earth, who’s culture is special and worth preserving at all costs.

Even before I’m convinced, I want to wish him well and let everyone know that I’ll be pissing liberals off by praying for President Obama and his family.

Certainly some of you are disagreeing or wondering how I can say that when I’ve been so exceptionally hard on him?

The fact is, my overt expressions on sensitive issues pertaining to Obama and my lack of trust can be directly traced to the death of the journalistic reporting.  I shouldn’t have had to dig to find a single negative story about a man who is a complete unknown, before electing him President of the United States.

Journalists nowadays are lap dogs instead of watch dogs as they have deemed it their job to transform America rather than police those who’s job that actually is.

This utter failure of the mainstream media hit Americans like a Whopper shortage and naturallycitizen amateur unlicensed non-corporate alternatives have sprung up to ask the basic questions. (Who? What? Where? When? Why? How?)

It’s big media’s fault that there weren’t professional resources allocated to investigate a lot of the crazy things that came up about Obama and for that matter, rudimentary things.  But time didn’t stop when they failed to do their job, and in the interim, a man has been elected by the majority of Americans, so I’ll be rooting for him.

Now let’s all celebrate the peaceful transfer of power and enjoy the speech written by this guy:

“Brilliant Constitutionalists” Say This Stuff All The Time

19 01 2009

The other day, the soon-to-be, Ego-In-Chief called for a, “new Declaration of Independence.” Obama is seemingly gleeful at the economic crisis and the opportunity it presents for bigger government, huge expenditures and a grand opportunity for his legacy.

Side note: Maybe I sound like liberals who say Bush relished 9/11 because he could then bludgeon every Muslim nation…heck, maybe Bush did enjoy it.  Then again, don’t we all remember Bush at the kindergarten when he learned of the 9/11 attacks, something the empathetic left has never let him live down.  That was not the look of happiness.  But I’m open to the idea that he had a bone to pick with Hussein (Saddam)…are liberals open to the idea that Obama is ecstatic over the current economic storm?

Later in his speech, Obama gave us another hint of the contempt he has for the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence saying, “documents that (are) imperfect but had within them, like our nation itself, the capacity to be made more perfect.”

This reminds us of the audio tapes that emerged from the Constitutional law professor lecturer in the final days of the 2008 election.  The corporate media didn’t dare redistribute the word because the lunacy in them could have doomed his campaign and killed their dream.

In them, Obama, even without a Russian accent, bemoans:

The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radicalIt didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change.

If nothing else, this type of information proves that we still don’t know anything about Barack Obama because the media, so integral to a free Democracy, has completely failed us.

Geez, I wonder if Saul Alinsky, Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers and Castro agree with Obama about the imperfect founding documents.





Sarah Palin Repeats ‘You Know’ 142 Times In Interview

30 12 2008

Now, she’s gonna be all over Saturday Night Live and get lambasted by every corporate media outlet.

Errr not.

In truth, it was Caroline Schlossberg Kennedy who in spite of these blunders, and no one knowing anything about her, garners at least the minimal respect of, not being labeled, “an idiot.”

It must be because she doesn’t have a Midwestern accent and she doesn’t moose hunt.

In related news; congratulations to Sarah Palin who recently graduated to GILF status with the arrival of her grandson.  Palin is the 2nd most admired woman in America behind Hillary Clinton in a new USA Today/Gallop Poll and her 2009 calendar is Amazon’s best selling office product.

sarah_calendar_cover_web_h23u1

As a side note, we’d like to tell everyone misogynist liberals to lay off Sarah Palin.  She didn’t put herself in the spotlight.  She was asked by a potential President for her service, and everyone knows she wasn’t a four year old girl living as a citizen in Jakarta when she decided the White House was her destiny (and not having a paper trail was the way to get there).

UPDATE: Palin was voted most desirable celebrity neighbor.

UPDATE: Video of Caroline Kennedy sounding like a moose-hunting, red state, bumbling idiot.





Which Came First; Childish Thinking Or Liberal Thinking?

27 12 2008

chickenegg_300

Yesterday, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette commenced a new series that will continue through inauguration day.  Throughout the month, readers will be indulged with hope as they read child-like children’s suggestions to the President-elect.

Now, when OutOfTheBlu was a youngster, he was a bit of a Marxist; thinking he could work at a Ferrari factory while his friends worked as  mansion builders and other friends cooked baseball-shaped, filet mignons.  Then, we could all share for free and really live it up!  So, while we’re certainly not surprised at the overwhelmingly liberal themes of the letters, we are concerned that the usual naive (see liberal) nature of children is being used by educators as an incubating device for the Democrats.

Unfortunately, the letters are so deranged and so smothered in liberalism, it begs the question of who is teaching who.  Fix up the grammar and vocabulary, and these 10 year-olds sound exactly like Ivy League professors.

Hey, all we ever really needed to know, we learned in kindergarten!

Here’s an up close look at tomorrow’s adorable Marxist, fascist liberals.

Dear President-Elect Obama,

I am a fifth-grade student at Liberty Elementary School. I am writing to you for a school project. These are some things I think you should do while you’re in office.

My family discusses alternative energy a lot. I think you need to look into it, such as solar panels and wind power. We need to get them at lower, less expensive prices so more people will be willing to buy it. We should also get more organizations that sell alternative energy. It would be nice to get totally electric automobiles, but that can’t happen quickly so you could start with having a law that cars, trucks and other things like that have to have a certain miles per gallon.

Another thing I think is very important is to get out of the war in Irack. Many lives would be saved and it would show that the government cares for its people. Families would be happy to be together again and they would thank you and the rest of the government. There would be a lot more money going to other things such as alternative energy, schooling and libraries.

The last thing I encourage you to do is put more money into schools. There is one school I go to on Fridays. The work there is more challenging and interesting. I think school should be fun for everyone, not just the advanced kids. These are the things I thought of to raise grades and make kids not despise school days.

You could put people into level groups. The high- and medium-graded people would work together, and the low and rest of the medium people would work together. One of my teachers told me there was research about group teaching and kids learned most this way. The medium-level kids brought their grade up to an advanced grade and the low-level kids brought their grade up to a medium level.

Teachers should be able to improvise more. They could make it more interesting. If it is interesting kids will want to go to school, not dread it. It will also make them pay closer attention.

The last way I thought of to help raise grades is having a few periods in each day when medium and advanced kids go to a different class. Then the teachers can focus on kids who take a little more time to really learn the lesson well, and not be distracted by the kids who finish their work quickly. At the same time, the other kids can be doing more challenging work so they are learning, rather than doing the same repetitive things over and over again.

I hope, even though I am just a child, you consider what I have said. It may prove helpful to you in the future.

Maya Lapp, age 10

Dear President-Elect Barack Obama,

This letter is to give you some ideas about what you can do to help our country’s economy. One thing you can do is try to stop the Iraq war. It would be a good idea to stop the war because a lot of money goes into the war, which means taxes have a 95 percent chance of going up.

Besides that, we are losing lots of people in the war, which means that a lot of children are being left behind without a parent. Also, a lot of young adults are being killed in the war.

One more thing that can help to improve our economy is to prepare children for the future by improving the school system and its technology.

Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely,
Maria Vaccarello, age 10

Dear President-Elect Barack Obama,

Here are two major problems in the U.S. that you can try to fix.

The first one is pollution. A lot of animals are dying because of pollution. Fish are dying from garbage being dumped into their habitat. People are dumping barrels of toxins into the oceans and many sea animals are losing food.

Another problem in the U.S. is global warming. In the future, all the land will be flooded with water because the icebergs are melting and the sea level is rising.
