I’ve allowed Obama’s coming fiscal year budget to digest, and it’s still giving me indigestion. I am sympathetic to the need to increase spending in some areas to promote job growth, but there is no effort to try and cut costs in other non-essential programs or to hold off on spending areas that do need improvement but not instantly. I am tired of his sorry excuse repeated over and over by progressives that if it wasn’t for President Bush, we wouldn’t have to build on this deficit. I know he got dealt a shitty hand. But it didn’t force him to fold when he got his party’s nomination. Since when do two wrongs make a right? What I think, is that he’s happy to deal with the problem because it allows him to pass more spending and promote some of his socialist views under the cover of recovering the economy. I don’t think it’s some sinister plot to destroy America…but he has made no qualms about hiding that he believes government can cure-all that ails us. Someone in this country, needs to make the tough decisions and get us back on track fiscally before our dollar has no value or our debt to foreign nation’s leads to something catastrophic. (more…)
In the ever-growing series of hypocritical liberal statements that don’t get coverage in the mainstream media, add this comment from Gore Vidal on an edition of Joy Behar’s new Headline News show this week. While discussing how President Obama is “too intelligent” for Americans, Vidal railed against Americans and our “lack of education” adding that we are being laughed at by the rest of the World. Behar and Vidal wax poetic about the brilliance of Obama and how America was “shocked” in comparison to Bush and just can’t handle the beaming light radiating from Obama’s being (I added that last part for dramatic effect – but I’m not exaggerating too far). But that’s only the beginning of the idiocy. (more…)
As some commentators on the Left look to defend the Nobel Peace Prize given to Obama on Friday morning, others are not so quick to acknowledge the President deserved it…including the President.
In the above video from yesterday’s Rachel Maddow Show, Ms. Maddow tries desperately (and smugly) to explain why Obama deserved the prestigious honor. She lists a few previous winners that were given the award prior to completing their life goal of peace. However, she overlooks the fact that the award was bestowed upon the likes of Desmond Tutu and Jimmy Carter after DECADES of charitable work. Between her predictable slaps at former President Bush, she tries to explain from the year prior to the nomination what Obama did to deserve the award. All examples other than the not complete order to close Guantanamo Bay were given in debates or speeches. Nothing of achievement; no actions to follow-up on his soaring peace mission rhetoric.
Maddow and the like are shamefully trying to spin the debate into being about American pride, rather than acknowledging the extreme bias that does not allow us to fairly debate the merits of our President. I understand why, it’s much easier from her point of view to make the debate about hating America. But while Maddow wishes to call those pointing out the absurdity of the award as “deranged” – one person agrees with the sentiment this was too soon. Following the jump, read the letter e-mailed to Obama supporters after the Nobel Prize announcement: (more…)
In what some would consider an appropriate headline for The Onion, this morning the Nobel Committee awarded the Peace Prize to President Barack Obama. Journalists in the hall were stunned upon the announcement. I know this might come across as an anti-Obama opinion, but I don’t feel anything negative towards Obama for the award. I’m more shocked at how a once illustrious award has been muddied in the politics of today’s world. Obama is third Democrat given the peace prize since 2002 – Carter in ’02 and Gore in ’07 being the others. An award given to such luminaries as Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, and Nelson Mandela for a lifetime of work, was given to President Obama for 9 months of hedging his bet and giving speeches of vast rhetoric and promise without much action to date.
