A Taste Of Things To Come

Now that the Obamessiah is President and the Democrats own Congress, here are a few questions and observations to ponder. Draw your own conclusions.

Is dissent still patriotic? It most certainly was when Bush was President, so I’m sure it will be now, too. Right?

Moving on, how are the fundamentals of our economy? Obama just said this:

We remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on Earth. Our workers are no less productive than when this crisis began. Our minds are no less inventive, our goods and services no less needed than they were last week or last month or last year. Our capacity remains undiminished.

Patterico points out: “In other words . . . the fundamentals of our economy are strong — the exact point that John McCain was pilloried for making during the campaign.” Hmmm…

Most ethical Congress in history? Uh…no:

[The rules] change allows Democrats to vote for tax increases without having to put themselves clearly on the record for higher taxes. In the last Congress, minority Republicans forced four such votes, putting Democrats squarely on the record for tax increases that were contained in two energy bills, the farm bill, and a bill related to bailing out holders of troubled mortgages. In all four cases, the Democrats won, but at least their priorities were recorded for the record.

The report then notes that such a vote could later become the subject of a political ad. With the new rules change, Democrats are protecting themselves from the kind of accountability that Republicans faced when they were in the majority, and which majority Democrats also faced prior to their loss of Congressional control in 1994.

Still, as much as Republicans disliked Democrats’ use of the House rules against them, they never tried to take away the minority’s right to do this. Democrats are now cracking down.

Did you know that one of the first things Obama did as President was to fund foreign abortions? I guess that’s one campaign promise that he actually kept. It’s sadly ironic, then, that a majority of Catholic voters supported him.

In the next installment of Name That Party!, we have this on the game board:

Portland mayor admits to gay sex with teen intern. An intern he was mentoring in the ways of gayness and politics. I. S***. You. Not.

But it’s worse than that, he admitted to lying about having gay sex with his intern. And I always thought it wasn’t the crime, it was the coverup? At least, that’s what my betters in the media are always telling me.

The AP seems to think party affiliation doesn’t matter here. I’m sure they never reported Larry Craig’s party affiliation either, what with the fairness and all. Anyway Mayor Sam Adams (seriously, that’s his name) apologized. Time to move on folks. Time to move on

Um…I thought it was the simple act of thinking about an affair that mattered, wasn’t it? Larry Craig, Tom Foley, etc. didn’t even get to first base with their interns, and yet Bill Clinton and Sam Adams rounded home plate. Can we say…

For an astounding glimpse into the mind of someone who’s been addled by the Obamessiah Kool-Aid, listen to this phone call to a bill collector left at Citibank about a delinquent car. Listen (h/t AoS):

Remind you of anyone?


Speaking of children’s snacks, some liberal apparently thinks he’s found a cookie with the Obamessiah’s face on it:

Um…okaaaaaay… They’re selling it on eBay, and it’s currently sitting at $8.94. This pitiful price might make one think that the Obamessiah isn’t quite as holy as the Virgin Mary. Yet. I’m sure he will once he lowers the oceans.

You know, it’s going to be an extremely frustrating couple of years…but if these stories are any indication, it’ll be pretty amusing, too.

There’s my two cents.


I'm a gun-owning, Bible-thumping, bitter clinger conservative in the heartland. You can disagree with me if you want (you do, after all, have a right to be wrong)...just don't be rude or stupid and we'll get along just fine! :)
