Obama is not the definition of hope. We are.

with one comment



Isn’t that what Adolph Hitler, Mao & Saddam Hussein did? Had their pictures painted up on walls as propaganda?

If you want to paint a mural about hope, fine. But putting his face on it gives it a whole new connotation that frankly I’m not comfortable with.

If Bush or McCain was doing this it would be called Fascist. Obama is not the definition of hope.

We are.

Obama is not the definition of hope. We are.


Sex, Drug Use & Graft in Interior Department–Obama Supporters!

with one comment

The Interior Department, the agency that collects oil and gas royalties has been caught up in a wide-ranging ethics scandal — including allegations of financial self-dealing, accepting gifts from energy companies, cocaine use and sexual misconduct.

This blog has learned exclusively that the majority of offenders, working for the Interior Department,  the biggest ones at least, were registered Democrats, supporters and in some cases financial contributors to Barack Obama.  Anyone surprised?

In three reports delivered to Congress on Wednesday, the department’s inspector general, Earl E. Devaney, found wrongdoing by a dozen current and former employees of the Minerals Management Service, which collects about $10 billion in royalties annually and is one of the government’s largest sources of revenue other than taxes.

“A culture of ethical failure” pervades the agency, Mr. Devaney wrote in a cover memo.

The other high-ranking official the Justice Department has declined to prosecute is Gregory W. Smith, the former program director of the royalty-in-kind program. Mr. Smith worked in Colorado and reported to Ms. Denett. He retired in 2007.

The report said that Mr. Smith improperly used his position with the royalty program to get an outside consulting job helping a technical services firm seek deals with oil and gas companies with which he was also conducting official business.

The report accused Mr. Smith of improperly accepting gifts from the oil and gas industry, of engaging in sex with two subordinates and of using cocaine that he purchased from his secretary or her boyfriend several times a year between 2002 and 2005. He sometimes asked for the drugs and received them in his office during work hours, the report said. Smith is a well-known Obama supporter.

Biden’s Daughter Ashley Arrested in “Altercation”

Ashley Biden With Sen. Biden & Brothers

According to the Los Angeles Times, the daughter of Sen. Joe Biden ( yes, that Biden, Barack Obama’s running mate) was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing a police officer outside one of “those” Chicago bars.

Ashley Blazer Biden, 21, of Wilmington, Del., was with a group of “friends” on a North Side Chicago street where several bars are located when someone else threw a bottle at an officer, police said.

When police tried to arrest that other person,  Ashley blocked the officer’s path and made intimidating statements, about who she was, who her father was, and the like, and generally tried to block the officer from arresting Ashley’s “friend”/”acquaintance”,  the police officer said.

Miss Biden was later released and is scheduled for court on September 20th.

Sen. Biden’s spokeswoman, Margaret Aitken, declined to comment, calling it a “private, family matter”.

Well, yes, one can understand their wish to keep this a “private, family matter, given the humilating and demeaning rumors and false accusations the Obama/Biden camp have spread for three days now about Governor Sarah Palin. I really, really do understand that.  But don’t you think that what you encourage your supporters to do to others, should also be good enough treatment for you?

But I won’t go there. I’ll just use the facts, and people will assume what they will.  Fair enough? I just know you will understand, after all, politics is politics, right?  I will say, however, in the spirit of Barack’s statement about Governor Palin’s family, that it would be wrong for anyone to speculate about Ashley Biden’s friends or lifestyle.  I firmly believe kids should be off limits.  And if I ever run for office, I will do my best to keep it that way. Too bad Ashley isn’t a kid anymore.

Michael Moore: ‘Gustav Is Proof Of God’ Sent To Pay-Back Bush/McCain

with one comment

Radical-leftist filmmaker (and Obama confidante) Michael Moore has his own take about the divine aspects of Hurricane Gustav’s scheduled landfall just as Republicans open their convention in St. Paul. Says Moore: “Gustav is proof that there is a God in Heaven.” He made the comment on Keith Olbermann’s show Countdown on MSNBC. Of course, Moore was quick to add that he hopes nobody gets hurt and that people will take cover from the storm, which is set to hit the Gulf Coast on Monday.

The despicably dishonest Olbermann dragged in President Bush presenting a birthday cake to John McCain three years ago during Katrina, in his role as a journalist with integrity, to show that President Bush and Senator McCain partied while people died in New Orleans.  What both of these slugs didn’t mention that the cake was presented on a airport apron, between the President’s and McCain’s flights and meetings coordinating Katrina relief.

Listen as these two feed each other lines and cues, it’s a love-fest.

‘Chosen One’s’ Stage Resembles His Dwelling In The Heavens!

Barack Obama’s big speech on Thursday night will be delivered from an elaborate white-columned Greek Temple. As befits a huge celebrity, Barack will stride out to a podium that can be magically raised from beneath the floor. It is unknown if Obama will materialize from billowing clouds as a huge chorus and orchestra announce the presence of “The One” There will, however, be a giant fireworks display, perhaps with lasers!

Obama really is a presumptuous celebrity who believes he has a lock on the Presidency.  His managers have deliberately created a cult of celebrity geared to the youngest members of the voting public, who are caught up in the MySpace/Facebook online celebrity worship game.

“Tonight, Americans witnessed a misleading speech that was so fundamentally at odds with the meager record of Barack Obama,” spokesman Tucker Bounds said. “When the temple comes down, the fireworks end, and the words are over, the facts remain: Senator Obama still has no record of bipartisanship, still opposes offshore drilling, still voted to raise taxes on those making just $42,000 per year, and still voted against funds for American troops in harm’s way. The fact remains: Barack Obama is still not ready to be President.”
