Same Old Story, Same Old Song and Dance

Can the same, tired rhetoric and false promises do it for Obama a second time?  Election day will tell the tale…

    This is a great ad, and exposes Obama as truly a one dimensional, empty suit candidate. Democrats are the most superficial, pandering, hyperbolic people there are and it’s sad that much of our poorly educated populace believe their lies.

    • freethinker September 4, 2012 / 4:56 pm

      Have you bothered to look into the mirror? You just described yourself and your fellow Republicans. The poorly educated populace, as you put it, most often votes Republican. Check the southern states and see how they lean. The more educated coasts tend to vote more Democratic. You need to do some fact checking instead of just running your mouth.

      • Mark Edward Noonan September 4, 2012 / 10:14 pm

        The more colleged-degreed coasts, you mean – having a college degree has not equaled “educated” for decades now…

    • Cluster September 4, 2012 / 6:16 pm

      Prove to me that the inner cities are more educated on the whole than rural areas and I might retract. But that doesn’t discount the empty suit claim now does it?

      • dbschmidt September 4, 2012 / 7:12 pm

        Just took a look and unless they claim the entire NE all the way to DC–it is not even close. I happen to live in the deep south (#4 on the list and next door to #10). San Jose (worked for a company there from here–do I count twice???) & Frisco on one coast and I’ll give them Boston & Bridgeport on the other.

        DC is southern location no matter what you think and the biggest problem is the money made in DC makes 9 of it’s 10 counties the richest in the nation. Too much money going into the black hole of Government.

    And possibly the saddest commentary of all, is the media’s slavish devotion to the one with dark skin. From Chrissy Matthew’s documentary on his personal love interest:

    “President Obama is the product of our turbulent history, all that came before led to him,” – Chris Matthews

    Should Michelle intervene? Of course, I think Matthews has much stronger affection for Obama than Michelle does, so if she really loved him, she would let him go.

    • Amazona September 4, 2012 / 10:05 am

      But of course we are learning that Obama is really the product of his own turbulent history, one of hatred for white people, and hatred of anything that could be linked to “colonialism”. We are learning of the emotional turmoil of being abandoned by his father and having to live with the daily realization that his father had no use for him at all, of developing a close relationship with his stepfather only to incur the wrath of his mother, who finally set herself against her husband and went so far as to ship Obama off to her parents to overcome Lolo’s influence on him—-an effort so successful that later Obama wrote of coming to despise the man who had been his only real father.

      There are the conflicts Obama himself wrote about—-the search for racial identity, the anger and hostility toward white people and authority, the years of drug use and alcohol abuse, and a new father figure so vehemently anti-American he was on an FBI watch list.

      When he found yet another father figure, it was also an angry black man, one consumed by hatred of whites, one committed as a pastor to a “religion” claiming to be Christian yet preaching hatred, violence, retribution and unrelenting resentment toward white people, and with a strong Marxist element.

      A strong man might have used these experiences to question what he had been told, to seek out his own truth and be a better man for it. But Obama clearly absorbed it all, internalized it and made it part of who he is and what he believes and his perception of his role in the world.

      So far the discussion on the origin and intent of using the phrase “natural born citizen” has been kind of abstract, but in Obama we have a portrait of what the Founders wanted to avoid, and why they were so specific. They understood the danger of having a president with divided loyalties, of one whose heritage is not of being an American, possibly a heritage of being ANTI American, and understood the importance of a history of American citizenship going back at least one full generation.

      • Retired Spook September 4, 2012 / 11:20 am

        Amazona,

        That is, perhaps, the best, most concise description of Obama’s persona that I’ve ever read. And yet we have millions of Americans (and some non-Americans) who fully support this person to lead our country. One can’t help but wonder why. Perhaps one of our regulars from the other side of the aisle can shed some light on that. Casper, Watson, Mitch, Dennis, Bozo — anyone?

        What a bunch of garbage amazona. But I am sure you believe this crap you wrote. Since when did you become a qualified, licensed psychologists? Oh that’s right, you aren’t. Just an opinionated bag of wind who thinks she knows everything. Pathetic.

      • freethinker September 4, 2012 / 5:23 pm

        Spook, why should any woman support the GOP? They don’t believe in equal pay for equal work; women are just too stupid to decide what is best for their health and family; and then you have the likes of Rush Limbaugh who put women down daily. There are so many issues with the GOP and the attitudes of those who belong to the so far right GOP – this is not the GOP I grew up with. Then you have the likes of Neo, tired and most of the posters here – nothing but hate on a daily basis. A huge turn off for those of us that are more independent and middle – neither far right nor far left. The GOP has changed so much in the past 10 years – but the last 4 years have been drastic. I don’t believe that Ronald Reagan would choose to be a part of this party.
        If someone posts something on this blog that the moderator does not like, they immediately delete and ban the person from posting. Makes me wonder what they posted that was so terrible that everything this poster writes must be immediately deleted. Especially when this Neo person is allowed to post the most vile lies with no penalties. What is the deal with that Mark?

      • Cluster September 4, 2012 / 6:13 pm

        You know freethinker, I will remind you that it was the democratic party that voted for the less experienced man over the more experienced woman in 2008, so don’t be quick to apply labels, ok? And it is Democratic representatives, namely Patti Murray who pays her women staffers a lot less than men, so maybe it’s the democrats who don’t believe in equal pay. Besides, the Lilly Ledbetter does nothing to ensure equal pay, it’s just another piece of ineffective liberal legislation.

        Lastly, you might want to ask Condi Rice, Mia Love, Susanna Martinez, Nikki Haley, Sarah Palin, etc, etc, what conservatives think of women. They are in a hell of a lot better position than you to comment on that.

      • Amazona September 4, 2012 / 8:28 pm

        Velma, instead of just stomping around in a huff and calling names, why don’t you tell me just what I said about Obama that you think is not true?

        Hint: It all came from his own books or things he has said.

        Go ahead—tell me what you think is false and I will show you the source for it.

      • Amazona September 4, 2012 / 8:33 pm

        Velma, do you believe that the blog is obligated to allow anyone at all to post here, even when those posts are nothing but vile personal attacks and even personal threats?

        You seem to think this is public space where anyone can use it a litter box. But I have seen many comments from Mark and Matt about the standards THEY think are important for THEIR blog.

        As the blog is, day in and day out, full of very nasty opposing comments from some very nasty people, including you, I don’t think your sniveling is worth much. I’ve seen some of the posts before they were removed, and they were not just opposing political opinions but vile, vicious, libels with no other content. That may appeal to you, but it’s not your blog, is it?

        I’ve also seen some posts by neo suddenly disappear, so quit your whining and your lying.

      • tiredoflibbs September 4, 2012 / 9:18 pm

        Ama: “Go ahead—tell me what you think is false and I will show you the source for it.”

        And with that challenge, Velma won’t be heard from again in this thread. Velma typically denies any and everything she personally does not like regardless of the truth – as in obAMATEUR’s own words.

        I like the way she accuses Ama of thinking she is a psychologist. Of course, velma believes she is a lawyer (who really can’t grasp the Constitution and other famous legal documents that established this country) – in name only. It is amazing that velma can’t grasp simple logical reasoning – something that a true lawyer needs.

        As I said, lawyer in name only.

        Pathetic.

      CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, headed to federal prison next week to serve a 69-month sentence on federal corruption charges, told The Daily Caller that he’s at the Democratic National Convention to lay the groundwork for what he hopes will be a future pardon from President Barack Obama.

      “I am going to try to get a commutation of sentence and eventually a pardon,” Siegelman told TheDC in a Monday interview inside the convention center.

        ‘It’s Like Raping Somebody’: DNC Delegate Says Voter ID Laws Stripping People of ‘Right to Vote’

        But she would be willing to show her ID “ten times” at the Democratic National Convention

      • Amazona September 4, 2012 / 2:15 pm

        Oh, great—first the Left redefines “racist” and now they are redefining “rape”.

        And, as usual, they are trivializing both words, words which used to have power and meaning and have become nothing but superficial catch-phrases for demagogues.

        The Left had a huge collective hissy fit when a man clumsily used the word “legitimate” about the act of rape, instead of about the legitimate or false reports of rape, and now they are tossing the word around to mean pretty much anything they don’t like.

        I wonder how legitimate rape victims—that is to say, women who really WERE raped and did not just claim they were—-feel about having this experience trivialized and turned into a political slogan.

  4. Raging Bull September 4, 2012 / 2:01 pm

    Spook there is no point in responding to anything that is posted here. This blog is an echo chamber for less than a dozen people who are extreme in their opinions and divorced from reality. The Republican party has shifted so far to the right as to be unrecognizable from what it once was and this group is on the most extreme fringes of it. Look at whom posts here. A birther, a religious zealot and an elderly woman who projects opinions as facts. I did, however, enjoy your post from a few days ago that was objective about the President. But sadly, it was only a matter of time before Neo chimed in an hallucinated that he was from Kenya.

        Neo is a birther and an embarrassment to himself and this blog which fancies itself as being so high-minded. If I were to prove that the President can walk on water, you’d accuse him of not knowing how to swim. That is how small minded, weak and ineffectual you are. You seethe with resentment and can’t formulate a coherent argument using facts, so in typical fashion you resort to defensive know-nothing tribalism.

      • All hail GMB, your benevolent Dictator! September 4, 2012 / 5:59 pm

        Maybe we should just start calling you little boy empathy? Since you have so much experience with a lot of topics here that is.

        Birther? I am in that club too. Just like Bill and Hillary. You ready for that torp in about weeks? Rumor has it on some of the more fringe pro-Hillary sites she got ahold of his true bc. Oh my, lets just wait and see.

        You know Mitch, you can ignore those who you don’t care for. The fact that Neo is gotten under your skin is more of a reflection on you than him.

        You may disagree with tiredoflibs but he always puts forth facts to support his opinions.

        And speaking of tribalism, I think you have the wrong party. Any one that strays from the Democrat plantation is quickly taken to the woodshed. Just ask Cory Booker.

        I would ask you to start presenting facts to support your opinions and we can get along swimmingly. Deal?

        I acknowledge the accomplishments of Obama, and always have.

        He told us, as clearly as he could when his minders were not hovering, trying to shut him up, what his vision for the nation was. He admitted he wanted to “fundamentally transform” it, and his own words in his books and some of his speeches outlined his radical Leftist agenda.

        And he has had great success in ramming through some of the most destructive legislation in the history of the nation, which is all directed at fulfilling his dream for the country. What he has not been able to do constitutionally, through the elected legislature, he has done through presidential fiat, simply bypassing the process and issuing executive orders.

        J.R. has outlined many of his accomplishments so I don’t need to go through them again, but please do not lie and claim I for one have not acknowledged them, because I have.

      • tiredoflibbs September 4, 2012 / 9:32 pm

        Sure velma I have acknowledged some of his accomplishments:

        – $5.4 TRILLION new debt in four years (more than Bush in EIGHT years – when obAMATEUR said this was irresponsible and unpatriotic).
        – starting a war in Libya, who were not a threat nor did they attack us.
        – raided Medicare to pay for obAMACARE.
        – unemployment above 8% for 40 straight months.
        – more people on food stamps and welfare than ever before.
        – raised taxes on all income brackets to pay for obAMACARE, while claiming to have cut taxes (with fake cuts many with qualifiers for eligibility or threatens Social Security and Medicare).
        – more people off the employment rolls (these are not counted in the final unemployment figure but they are unemployed nonetheless).
        – worst economic record since Jimmy Carter.
        – bailouts to political cronies.
        – failed stimulus
        – failed energy policy
        – massive regulation putting more burden and expense on business owners (resources that could be used to hire workers).

        The trouble is velma you won’t acknowledge the NEGATIVES of this pResident. He does not have a positive record on which to run. His campaign proves it – it is full of attacks and baseless accusations. His “accomplishments” are spin and outright lies.

        Now go wipe your chin you have kool-aid dripping from it.

        Pathetic.

      • tiredoflibbs September 4, 2012 / 9:48 pm

        Oh here are accomplishments velma:

        – Appoint a deficit reduction commission and promptly IGNORE their findings.

        – grand-stand on letting the Bush tax cuts expire, then sign a bill extending them.

        – largest sustained drop in home values

        – doesn’t know the meaning of “shovel-ready”.

        – can’t utter a complete sentence without the aid of a teleprompter.

        – preside over the lowering of the nation’s credit rating (after being told excessive debt and deficits would cause such action).

        – he takes credit for everything that could be construed as positive and shifts blame for anything negative.

        – he “got bin Laden” while taking 18 hours to decide (while giving the impression it was a no-brainer) and having a fall-guy to take the blame if things went south.

        Again, velma, once you see past the fluff, there are alot of accomplishments that obAMATEUR has had. He has such a positive record on which to run, no need for incivility or politics of personal destruction.

      • tiredoflibbs September 4, 2012 / 9:59 pm

    • Amazona September 4, 2012 / 8:18 pm

      mitche, Velma gets downright testy when you call her “elderly” so I would watch it if I were you. But you are right, she does present her odd opinions as facts, and then scoots off when they are debunked.

      Or begs to be bitten, depending on her mood of the moment.

      As for “birther” that is such a meaningless term it merely points back to anyone who uses it as a fool. It can mean someone who thinks Obama was born in Kenya, or someone who thinks he was born in Hawaii but has some other reason to hide his birth certificate, or someone who just wonders why he spent so much time and money to keep from providing any proof of where he was born. It includes people who believe he was probably born in Hawaii but does not meet the standard of “natural born” citizen. The only people it does not include are those who are convinced he was born in Hawaii, had no reason to prove it, and see no difference between “native born” and “natural born” citizen.

      You forgot about dbschmidt, Cluster, tired of libs, Spook, the Count, J.R., me, and Mark as regular commenters on the conservative side, plus a few who drop in from time to time. On the Left side, there is not one single person who indicates an understanding of the Leftist political system, or support for it, preferring to just hurl insults and spew talking points.

      In my many years on the blog, I have seen one—ONE—-discussion in which a Lib actually participated in a rational and civil discussion on any topic, offering relevant links and thoughtful opinions, and that was a woman (I think) who participated in the Natural Born Citizen thread. Not a great record for the trolls.

    As we pass 16T dollars in national debt (and both parties are responsible), the DNC opens after removing the word “God” from their platform (not sure if they replaced it with “Government” yet)–it really comes down to not the Dems and Repubs, nor the DNC and RNC, or liberals and conservatives but rather how you think this country should be run.

    If you think that Government is God and you need to look towards government for answers to all of your needs throughout your life–vote for Obama. If you believe in following the US Bill of Rights and US Constitution (fully amended) is the right direction for this country-vote for Romney. Even though I do not believe he is a fully Constitutional GOP’er–he will be the lesser of two evils in this election.

    It has taken the Progressives (in both parties) over 100 years to destroy this country and it may take longer to get it back (if at all) but we need to start now before it is too late.
