Liberal Love and Tolerance

Twitchy has the latest string of liberal hated – calls for Anny Romney to die, or kill herself…and kill her husband, too. There is more to see at Instapundit where there is a thread about how people who are conservative but work in “liberal” professions are afraid to have their colleagues learn of their views…because everyone knows that if you’re surrounded by liberals and don’t toe the line, they’ll make you pay for it.

Remember that “new tone” bullsh**?  Yeah; me, neither.

      Because the Right has NOTHING BUT LOVE AND RESPECT for the office of the presidency.

      Interestingly, these are legit.

        How many of these are based upon political differences? That is, identifiable as from “the Right”?

        Or do you just assign a blanket identity of this mythical “right” to every nut case that threatens a president?

        Do you also then assert that all the myriad death threats against George W Bush represented the Left? Or just the assassination movies and talk show speculations about killing him?

    I was at a point a couple years ago, as our Lefties here like to point out, that I was sure we were spiraling toward some kind of violent revolution, largely because of the vitriol coming from the Left. I just didn’t see how it could end in anything but violence. then I began to realize that you can let stuff like this consume you, or you can concentrate on doing your part to make things better. That’s how my wife and I got involved in the Tea Party. By the time we got involved on a regular basis, the movement was nearly a year old, and the rah, rah demonstrations, rallies and nasty signs were dying out in favor of grass roots organizing and involvement in the political process. The massive political shift in 2010 would never have happened without the Tea Party, and I think the Left is going to be caught completely flat-footed in 2 months by Peaceful Revolution Part 2.

      I think the Left is going to be caught completely flat-footed in 2 months by Peaceful Revolution Part 2.

      We can only hope, Spook.

      You know, though, in my opinion, peace and revolution are two words that don’t seem right in the same sentence. When one thinks of revolution, one thinks of a war with guns a blazing, and blood being shed (American revolution). As it is derived from the word revolt – which means to rise up, rebel, and take out the opposition by force…retaliate violently. I’m not saying that I disagree with the overall meaning, or intent of a peaceful revolution, by all means let us do it, but I would think of it more as an awakening, or revival, if you will. As opposed to revolution. We could call it the Great Awakening.

        Neo, if the current trends continue, Romney will win by a comfortable enough margin that no amount of cheating will make a difference. And if Romney wins, there will be a much greater likelihood of violence. The only question will be, will it be confined to inner cities or more wide-spread. I don’t see violence by Conservatives if Obama wins; I just see more resolve and more people joining the Tea Party. Now if Obama wins and there is evidence of massive cheating and voter fraud, then all bets are off.

    The list of Leftists who frequently go off the rails is long, but one of the worst offenders is Lawrence O’Donnell.

    MARTIN BASHIR: We have seen an early draft of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s forthcoming oration. Can I quote something from you? “For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation’s problems, he hasn’t been working to earn re-election. He has been working to earn a spot on the PGA Tour.” How about that?

    LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there. He is trying to align to Tiger Woods and surely, the — lifestyle of Tiger Woods with Barack Obama. Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth. They find every way they possibly can to –

    BASHIR: Lawrence — don’t you think — don’t you think that what he’s really trying to do is to suggest that the president is not paying attention to the central issues that come with the responsibility he has? Is he really – Mitch McConnell really making a connection with Tiger Woods who, of course, has become infamous for chasing various cocktail waitresses around Las Vegas and so on?

    As Ace writes in response, “When noted race-baiter Martin Bashir finds your proposition dubious, perhaps you’ve over-stepped.”

    Anyone else here take Mitch McConnell’s analogy to the PGA tour as anything more than a dig at the number of rounds of golf the President has played?

      I just heard this exchange and just again am amazed at not only the stupidity of Bashir and O’Donnell, which I think is well established by now, but also the means to which they will go to find racism. And that of course, to any thinking person, is clearly an indictment on their own blatant racism that they have, and the irony is that they are obviously oblivious to that fact.

      It truly is unbelievable.

    Some people dropped by last night so I didn’t get to watch all of the speeches. I thought I caught most of Ryan’s, so I was surprised when I googled it and scanned the responses, seeing quote after quote about how dishonest it was. So I pulled up the transcript, read it, read it again, and thought it so powerful I copied it to my document file because I think I may be referring to it in the future.

    I found nothing mean spirited in it, and certainly nothing dishonest. I did, however, find truths the Left has to find unpleasant.

    None of us have to settle for the best this administration offers – a dull, adventureless journey from one entitlement to the next, a government-planned life, a country where everything is free but us. stood out.

    I skimmed past a headline in which Lardball was squealing that Ryan’s speech was mean spirited or vicious or some such nonsense—you know Mathews—–because it didn’t address blacks.

    Well, yeah, Chris, it did. It addressed AMERICANS. The Right does not divvy up our people into little groups and then try to set them against each other. The Right doesn’t depend on the game of “Let’s you and him fight”. The Right does not start with skin color and then base everything from that moment on on that superficial characteristic.

    We are people.
    We are Americans.
    We are Americans of many different skin colors, ethnicities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, opinions and ideas.
    But we are Americans.
    And we have the same problems and the same concerns, and we need to work together, as Americans, to solve those problems.

    We should be starting by choosing the form of government we want, the system we think will allow us to find answers and solve those problems.
    And the Mathews and such are trying to distract us from doing that by pretending that the election is not about choosing between two opposing political systems, but about focusing on skin color and imagined slights.

    Mathews is not a nice man, but he is not as stupid as he looks. He is smart enough to know that the only chance the Left has, after the disaster of the last four years, is to not just divide the nation but to splinter it, to work to create such divisiveness, such distrust, such hated, among so many small subgroups of Americans that we lose track of the real issue. He has proved himself to be quite willing to do whatever it might take to do this, and has moved beyond the giddy fan-club stage of Obama adoration into actual, blatant, overt demagoguery.

    Political differences—that is, differences in opinion about how best to govern the nation—divide us. But issues do much more than that—they splinter us into thousands of sharp shards that demagogues can then use to slash at others, not just dividing but destroying. And this is what I see the Left trying to do now—not just to divide, but to shatter, in hopes we can never put it all back together again.

      Bull, one of the great speech segments last night:

      What we have now are politicians. They won’t offer real plans, and only stand up when they want to blame someone else.

      And I don’t say that just because a Democrat is in the White House. I was a Democrat for many years. So were my parents.

      Before I ran for District Attorney, two Republicans invited my husband and me to lunch. And I knew a party-switch was exactly what they wanted.

      So, I told Chuck, we’ll be polite, enjoy a free lunch and then say goodbye.

      But we talked about issues-they never used the words Republican, or Democrat, conservative or liberal.

      We talked about many issues, like welfare – is it a way of life, or a hand-up?

      Talked about the size of government — how much should it tax families and small businesses?

      And when we left that lunch, we got in the car and I looked over at Chuck and said, “I’ll be damned, we’re Republicans.”

    OT, but the national debt clock on the wall at the RNC will likely click over $16 trillion before the end of the convention. The scary fact is that it clicked over $15 trillion just before Thanksgiving last fall — a $trillion added in a little over 9 months.

    TAMPA — The wildly anticipated Republican nudie-bar bonanza has turned out to be a double D-sized bust.

    Strippers across this mammary mecca were anticipating an orgy of business this week from the crush of conventioneers.

    Instead, three days into the RNC, Tampa’s dancing beauties were still waiting for their stimulus packages.

    “My friend told me I’d make $3,000 a night this week,” said a slinky brunette named Jordan, as she gazed dejectedly around an empty Mons Venus bar on Monday, the Isaac washout day in Tampa. “I’ve made $100 tonight and it’s already 3 a.m.”

    “I don’t even know what I’m still doing here,” she added. “This sucks.”

    I love this; I spotted this comment on a thread after the headline; Obama: I Didn’t Do Good Enough Job Selling Americans On Stimulus Plan

    Dear President Obama,

    I’d like to tell you a story. As a boy I walked into my fathers (sic) office with a book. It really isn’t a book per se it is more like a tome – in the old days the Encyclopedia Britannica would include a set of books called the “Book of the Year.” Anyway, I’ve got this book and in it are the statistics and subjects that cover the milestones in the given year. The year in question is 1979. So there I am, some time in 1995 in my old mans office with this massive book cracked open, and I pose a question: “Dad, Why didn’t you invest all your money in the Dow Jones Industrial Average in 1979?” My father looked over the nose of his bi-focal glasses, and simply said “You and your sister needed to eat.”

    Well I was not gonna take that for an answer. I mean for crying out loud, do you have any idea how much money we would have made if you had just done that! What could have been easier? Just take a little of your paycheck and invest it or live cheaper and we could have an awful lot of money now! My old man took this enthusiasm as an opportunity to give me a lesson in economics and money management, actually Mr. Obama had you been present for that lecture, hundreds of millions of Americans would have more than a fair shot at prosperity now.

    Back to the lecture. So the Oldman asked me for the book. Dad pointed to the table on interest rates for the time, and the asked me a question “Joe(my name’s not Joe, but lets (sic) just call me Joe) If I told you that the US Government would give you a guaranteed return of 10% or you could risk your entire nut in the stock market what would you do?” My answer was “No way pop. I’m not going to take that bet.” Then I pressed him further, “Why didn’t you buy those bonds and make 10% for 30 years?” Then he launched into the concepts of inflation and price controls and disposable income and all the rest. By the end of it I said simply. I get it. “We needed to eat.” Then he gave me the save for a rainy day lecture, and why that is the breeding ground for success as well as survival, he called it “insulation from poverty,” and how to save through diversification and how to use debt wisely.

    So fast forward to August of 2008. The old man calls me up “Joe, 50% chance of rain.” He was talking about you Mr. Obama, you are the rain. But, I had prepared for your socialist redistributive economic philosophy, while preparing for the usual financial setbacks. Actually I noticed that a whole lot of people began to go into a similar mode of anticipatory economic survival. Companies shed workers to protect capital, operations in Union friendly states began to diversify in “Right to Work States” or out of the country entirely. The job losses mounted and mounted and you and other Democrats took this as a golden opportunity to win an election, because Americans often work under the false assumption the government can cure what ever ails them, so they went Big Government, they went for you Mr. Obama, and they regret that choice.

    Now, if you had been in that office with my father and me, you would have known exactly what to do. Alas this was not so, you reached for the Federal Credit Card, and man you spent, and spent, and spent, and now you are a failed CEO millions of employees, trillions in debt, trillions in deficit, and all you can talk about is some poor broad who you canned on the bases of ten minute snippet taken out of context, right before you go on your one hundredth vacation or play your next golf game.

    This isn’t even funny anymore, this is a disaster.

        I’m rarely good at predicting the future but I’ve gotta believe this election will be much wider than the pundits think.

        I went to see 2016 over the weekend with my daughter. The theater was packed for the 2:00 show. Just as the movie started a couple came in and sat beside us, I looked to see one of the attorneys we know and his wife. These two were HUGE Obama supporters in 2008; big-time democrat contributors. I’ve had numerous conversations with him about “knuckle-dragging conservatives” and the “racist right-wingers” who only want to see a qualified “man of color” fail.

        He’s fed up with the class warfare, politics of low expectations, and tired of making excuses for someone whose only talent is making excuses.

    Another Failed Paul Ryan “Fact Check”

    Thursday, Aug 30, 2012 at 3:11 PM MDT

    Some guy once said “Facts are stubborn things.” Apparently, the fact checking websites out there didn’t get the memo. Sites like Politifact, the AP’s Fact Check, and Fact have been hammered lately for becoming increasingly partisan…at least against republicans. Some are worse than others undoubtedly,but I’ve been whining about this for a while.

    Let’s look at one of the supposed “lies” by the Romney campaign.

    FactCheck.Org claims that Romney’s ad stating the “Obama administration has adopted a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements” is false. (Before I deconstruct this, I just want to let Chris Matthews, Ron Fournier, Thomas Edsall, and Timothy Nolanknow that mentioning the word welfare does not mean that I’m racist.)

    Fact Check claims that the Romney ad is false—by meticulously proving it’s true.

    Here’s their reasoning:

    “Work requirements are not simply being “dropped.” States may now change the requirements — revising, adding or eliminating them — as part of a federally approved state-specific plan to increase job placement.”

    The reason this is supposedly a lie, is because the employment part of welfare wasn’t completely banned. Instead, a national requirement has just been moved back to a state option. Obviously, if the state chooses the “eliminating” option, work requirements will be dropped. But, as Fact Check points out, many states won’t do that.

    To emphasize how asinine this line is, let’s switch up the wording a little bit. What if we replaced the welfare laws with abortion:

    “Roe v. Wade is not simply being “dropped.” States may now change the abortion requirements — revising, adding or eliminating them — as part of a federally approved state-specific plan to increase family planning.”

    What Obama has done to work requirements is roughly the equivalent of overturning Roe vs Wade. If Roe vs Wade was overturned, it wouldn’t make abortion illegal, it just returns the options to the states. Add on an additional goal of “increasing family planning” (whatever that means) and it’s basically the same thing.

    • J. R. Babcock August 30, 2012 / 8:14 pm

      It looks like the fact checkers also got their facts wrong about the Janesville, WI, GM plant closing, because they based their fact check not on actual, you know, facts, but on a Stephanie Cutter tweet that the plant had closed during the Bush Administration. Even CNN says that’s not true.

      This whole “code” thing is starting to make sense to me, now that I understand that Chris Matthews is code for “unbelievably stupid”.

      And “rich” is code for “productive”.

      We ought to start to contribute to the Code Book. For example, I didn’t know that Chicago’s coded meaning had changed—-it’s been code for “corrupt” for so long, I thought that was permanently etched into the consciousness of America.

One by one, the host picked them apart. Finally, in desperation, she said, “well, at least Obama deserves credit for trying.” The host replied, “you’re right; trying is very important. As he is exiting the White House for the last time on January 29, 2013, we should hand him a participation trophy.”

        And while we are at it, if the feds are going to go after the Navy Seal for what he said in his book, I suggest that they put his name at the end of a list of those who have compromised national security by revealing classified information, and start at the top of that list.

    Speaking of codes, I think it’s obvious that “inherited” is code for “way too much for me to handle but I CAN politicize it”.
