Today, Boehner and Pelosi announced that they would support Obama’s plan to strike Syria following the use of chemical weapons by one of the warring factions within Syria. Pelosi was quoted as saying that we must respond to actions “outside the circle of civilized behavior.” Does that mean that it was inside “civilized behavior” when Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans were brutally slaughter in Benghazi? Is it within “civilized behavior” to kill thousands in Africa? What really constitutes “civilized behavior?”
Obama used Boehner once again as his lackey so he could have someone to blame (Congress) when this bombing of Syria results in a wider confrontation in the Middle East….and has repercussions within the United States. Boehner’s tough guy policy with Obama has been a joke! Why the Republican house elected this guy as the speaker is another question for the ages.
Obama is brilliant at manipulating Boehner! He is a lousy president, but a good manipulator!!!
Being a conservative, I must confess that I am not paying much attention to the Democratic National Convention. But, the few parts I have watched have saddened me on what is happening in America. Booker, Trumka, Pelosi, etc., parade up to the podium and repeatedly pound their message that there is a war on the “middle class” of America and that the GOP is, somehow, responsible. The vitriol, anger, and divisiveness of these politicians is impossible to ignore. They attack success and big businesses with abandon; they continuously push the message that everyone must pay their fair share (which is Democrat-speak means higher corporate and individual taxes for top earners); and each messenger is obsessed with driving a wedge between the classes of Americans. Senate Candidate from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, railed on a “rigged” economy that disenfranchises the middle class.
And, Bill “Bubba” Clinton delivered his speech to an enthusiastic audience of women delegates. No one in the convention hall seemed to care that Bubba has been rumored to be one of the biggest philanderers and womanizers ever to hold public office….much less the White House. Clinton, who was impeached by the US House of Representatives in 1998 for perjury and obstruction of justice, was cheered as a leader of the Democratic Party. Let’s ask Dolly Kyle Browning, Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, and the notorious Monica Lewinsky how they feel about Bubba and the GOP’s “War on Women.” It makes my skin crawl!
At least, voters will have a real choice in November.
P.S. As a side note, a poll was taken in a 50 student Political Science class at the University of Texas last week. Unbelievably, Obama scored 42 of the 50 student votes! This just validates how uninformed and naive the young people of America really are…..and how their developing minds are influenced by the leftist professors in the universities of our country!
Today, the “Deal” is being discussed and dissected by politicians and the media! Obama has inferred that the Joint Committee appointed in the “Deal” will consider “revenue enhancers” when it makes its recommendations before Thanksgiving! Pelosi has said “details are important” (even though she cared little about “details” when she pushed Obamacare through the House); and she pledged a “careful review” to “meet with my caucus to see how to proceed” with the proposal. Rep. Paul Tonka (D-NY) said they “we avoided a default” and “an assault on the middle class”has been averted! And the ever opinionated Shelia Jackson Lee (D-TX) pronounced the deal to be a “sugar-coated Satan sandwich” as she confessed that she had not even read the proposal! It is no wonder that Congress can’t get anything done! A house-cleaning is needed in 2012!
The House and Senate leadership (and Obama) are lobbying their members to make sure this vote passes through Congress. Meanwhile, Lindsay Graham and Michelle Bachmann, both Republicans, say they will not support the deal! And, Mitt Romney has finally “led from behind” stating that he is concerned about the bill! Will this drama ever end? I guess if everyone is pissed off, then it must be the best Congress can do!
P.S. Can anyone tell me what a “sugar-coated Satan sandwich” means?
Civility. Vitriol. These words have been thrown around with howling frequency since the horrendous shooting in Tuscon. The media, principally the mainstream left, have spewed the public with charges that “conservative-speak” is somehow responsible for the actions of a deranged psychopath. Continue reading
Today, the Pelosi-led Democratic Caucus refused to support the tax bill compromise that Obama struck with the GOP. What a bunch of cry-babies! And decided to take a 4 day week-end from the business of the country! Where the hell is going on! The Caucus has done nothing but pander to their left-wing, progressive fanatics! Continue reading
Finally, Americans have awakened from the trance that Obama, the shape-shifter, put us in during the 2008 elections! After all of his campaigning (instead of doing his job – governing for all the people), the public has voiced its discontent with the left-wing, progressive agenda that sweep Obama into office two years ago. The public-at-large does not like socialized medicine, government waste, big government, bailouts, higher taxes, huge deficits, and spiraling national debt! Continue reading
For those of you not familiar with the “vig,” it is the interest required by a bookie, loan shark, or crime syndicate to float a loan to their “customer!” The vig is also referred to as the “juice” on the loan. And, in the old days, if you failed to pay the “vig,” the mob whacked your knees….or fed you to the sharks! Continue reading
