Democrats Applaud Lustily
I used to think BJ Clinton was the worst president in American history because of his open criminality and blatant dishonesty. Last night, listening to Our Barry spin his web of mendacities and crowing his shocking economic ignorance I realized that BJ was a walk in the park compared to what we have inflicted upon ourselves in a new century. After all, when BJ said the era of big government was over, that he never even met the Chicom arms dealers who spent so much time in the White House and that he had never slept with Monica or Jennifer or Paula or Jaunita we all knew he was lying and he knew we knew, he was just daring us to do something about it. He clobbered everyone who tried. Put some ice on that Newt! But BJ was on one level a lovable rogue. You could catch the gleam in his eye as he evaded another inconvenient question or launched an air strike against some hapless savages to blow the latest scandal below the fold that day.
With BJ you knew he was lying but with The Friend of the ACORNs you sometimes wonder whether he actually believes the hogwash he spouts. He can control the economy and the weather? Thats nice. It turns out that all of us Teabaggers are so blinded by ideology and hatred that we have missed this roaring economy, so much better than the one in the Horrible Bush Years when unemployment was 4%. But we all know that. The feeble 'freeze' that he has proposed after last year's huge increase in discretionary spending is about as likely to be enacted by Nutsy Pelosi and the shopaholics in Congress as Barry is likely to nominate Mark Levin for the next open Supreme Court seat. Hey, and those clowns on the Court better wise up too, Barry's not amused! You can take that First Amendment stuff a little too far.
I did feel bad about ignoring all that overwhelming science about Global Warming, oops I mean Climate Change. The overwhelming science that predicted that the Arctic ice cap will have melted by now and that the glaciers would be gone from the slopes of the Himalayas. The rising seas which arent rising...but when they do...! Well we still need Cap and Trade to tax that bad old carbon because, even if the Deniers might have a point, the tax has its heart in the right place and is much needed.
But policy isnt the main point of this little blurb. I'm in the entertainment industry and so I watch these things with a Deaverish eye. How did the speech work on TV? It was awful. A disaster. Applause lines that were so lamely delivered that no one applauded. A ham-handed and very inaccurate attack on the Supreme Court. Two thirds into it he started with a whole new way of telling us simpletons how mad he was. I thought at that point that the teleprompter guy had gotten the pages mixed up. I used to marvel at how many speechmakers looked down at their cue cards while they were on TV. Obama is worse; he looks from prompter screen to prompter screen, right to left, always a three quarter shot, never into the camera. You wouldnt have ever caught Reagan ( an excellent speaker, one of the best) doing something like that, or even BJ Clinton (who I never thought was a very good speaker).
When Harry Reid was happily chortling about a black guy who had dumped the 'Negro Dialect' he never would have thought that the day would come when we'd all be yearning for a little more 'Negro' and a little less Princeton from President Mush Mouth. Once I went to see Nelson Mandela at the LA Colosseum. The warm-up speakers were Maxine Waters and Jesse Jackson. That's Negro Dialect I can enjoy. They had 80,000 people on their feet jumping up and down, myself included. We laughed, we cried, we yelled along. Mandela was better than both of them, of course, but that was because of what he was saying, not how he delivered it. You could have heard a pin drop.
Not so with Barry. No style and no substance. This was a lecture, not a call to the barricades. A part-time professor at a junior college who arrived late and found someone had parked in his space. This is the tired and desperate con-man trying to sell us clueless Eskimos another refrigerator. The Dems cant be happy about this. Old Dawg liberals like Barbara Boxer and Russ Feingold are watching their 'safe' seats turn into very iffy propositions. They know what the screamin' millions think about our 'expanding economy' and they're scared about November. If they think this is an Obama problem then they are as delusional as he is. The big disadvantage they have is the liberal media whose uncritical optimism gives them the impression that the current revolution is just the usual fringe crackpots. A photo in Time or Newsweek of the nutball who showed up at the Tea Party with an 'Obama is Hitler' sign keeps them from having to show the thousand people with signs about taxes or the constitution.
But its not just the Right. Its regular people who dont care that much about politics. There isnt anything that has appalled non-Right Wingers more than the way they treated that creep Abdulmuttallib, the Islamic Panty Bomber. He was going to murder three hundred people plus however many were on the ground when the plane hit. He knows the names of others who want to do the same thing and he knows who is running the operation and where they live. Those are things we dont know because that dope was read his Miranda Rights and given a taxpayer funded lawyer. They should have been pouring chili powder on his burns until he gave every word up and then they should have taken him in a helicopter up to 10,000 feet and tossed him out. Live on TV, Al Jeezera included. As soon as he hit the ground the cruise missiles should start raining down on Yemen with as much consideration shown for innocent civilians as was shown on that airplane Christmas Day.
The smarmy lies of Gibbs and Obama about this and the Ft. Hood massacre reflect on all these libs. Every eye can see what a bunch of traitors they are. Our enemies are murdering our brothers and sisters. Anyone who ever flies on an airplane has a little more fear in their brains as we board because we know not only are there crazy fanatical whackos trying to murder us but the incompetent buffoons who are supposed to be stopping them are so PC they cant even mention whats going on. There is no reset button for that, is there? There is, its called an election.
What this speech showed was a Democratic Party up on their feet applauding the ongoing disaster. They are exposed in front of the nation as bald-faced naked liars who have no intention of modifying their destructive, greedy behavior. This is Bush's fault, is it? What have you clowns done about it? People elected them because they bought the eight years of fervent anti-Bush propaganda. Things were supposed to get better and they most certainly have not. They've gotten progressively worse. The unheard-of trillion-dollar deficits and the Fed printing money by the trainload are causing a stampede to gold and offshore investments and panicking people about the future. You dont need an Ivy League degree to understand a two trillion dollar deficit. A Democratic deficit. No fiery rhetoric or soothing promises can lie that away.
Maybe the Dems will attempt to throw Obama under the bus. They did it with Carter. It wont do them any good. People hate Nutsy Pelosi and Harry 'Uriah Heep' Reid as much as they hate Obama. The libs are leaderless and paralyzed by the realization that their fondest dreams being unveiled has touched off a wave of rage and hatred unparalleled in American politics. The round of primaries this spring will bring them opponents who are riding a surge and the Dems will have to face this assault with an increasingly unpopular President Obama weighing them down. If the unemployment rate isnt significantly lower by November than there are NO safe Democratic seats.
