Besides John McCain and Lindsey Graham and talk show hosts Michael Medved and Rush Limbaugh, how many of our leaders …Read the Rest
“…“Talk radio, MoveOn.org, the 24-hour news cycle makes it very hard to reach across the aisle,” Graham said. It gets polarized. Can you imagine doing D-Day with cable television? Can you imagine writing the Constitution — you know, O’Reilly says Ben Franklin’s giving in on something. Can you imagine having to do that in this environment?…”Do I want some of his policies to fail? You better believe it. Do I want him to fail? No, because he’s my president,” Graham said. “If he fails in Afghanistan, if he fails in Iran, my country fails.“…”
Finally, someone is unloading on Glenn Beck. Naturally it would be Lindsey, and naturally this will be a declaration of war. This is so much fun! Lindsey is saying what most of us are already thinking.

The other day The Pink Flamingo mentioned to someone (don’t remember who) that Rudy could be making a move. The discussion is all on him running for governor in NY, but from what I’ve heard, that could be an Axelrod manipulation in order to push Giuliani into running against Andrew Cuomo, which would ruin Giuliani.
I’m wondering for 2012 if it isn’t going to be the candidate who can talk national security who isn’t going to rake in the nomination. The kind of thing Giuliani pulled at the UN against Iran isn’t going to hurt.
The old fashioned, true believer Libertarians I’ve known appear to have absolutely nothing to do with the “conservative” Ron Paul version of Libertarian. Old fashioned Libertarians were left-over hippies, former stoners, and were all about the legalization of marijuana. Some were very pro gun. Then there were the anti-military former Dems who felt the Democratic party was no longer liberal enough.
It was not about culture. It was not about Ron Paul. It was not about “the Constitution”. They were not about denigrating various politician. It was all about NOT being involved, not getting one’s political act together, and tilting at wind-mills. Their cause was romantic. They had a few good ideas, but a true Libertarian is so akin to an anarchist that the very act of attending a political meeting, a national convention, or actively promoting a candidate or agenda is simply not possible.
Any resemblance to the intolerant, bigoted (politically bigoted) bunch of lying, Ron Paul loving, Glenn Beck swilling, Robert Stacy McCain holier than thou sore-heads some of whom are advocating the violent overthrow of various elected officials who don’t agree with their extremism, is purely coincidental. They are now reaching the point where some of them are advocating a second revolution, civil war, and the actual lynching of politicians who do not agree to their emotional black-mail, both Democrats and Republicans.
Republicans are well grounded. We have our problems and a little conservative civil war is brewing, but right now we’re …Read the Rest
This is one of those posts I’ve played with, edited, deleted, and rewritten over a period of two weeks, collecting material quite frequently. Perhaps the word “bully” is over-used. In the case of Democrats it has several different meanings. Democrats and their flunkies bully for two reasons – first to intimidate, harass, and discourage. Secondly, they bully because they are out of ideas. They can only win by harassment, intimidation, and discouragement.
Remember how Barack Obama promised he would go out and make the world see us as warm and cuddly after George W. Bush used that proverbial big stick to beat the you know what out of our enemies? Well, he’s sure going around appeasement of the wrong people.
The Pink Flamingo has this theory that history is cyclical. I just never thought it would repeat itself so quickly. The way it looks today, in 2012 we’re going to be repeating the 1980 election. I just hope we have someone like Sarah Palin who can take our current version of Jimmy Carter and wipe the floor with him. The way it stands today, I don’t see anyone else who can do it, and pull off a nomination. Naturally the press will crucify her. Right now we’re dealing with someone worse than Jimmy Carter.
Why would a man who prides himself on his discretion, who has been so careful not to denigrate or comment on Barack Obama, be so loose-lipped with the junior staff at the White House?
It doesn’t make sense and is totally out of character.
As a biographer, I’ve learned that one way to fact-check something written about a person is to see if that material is out of character, or rings true.
When I first started researching the life of Wyatt Earp I discovered there were two versions of his life. He was either good or evil with nothing in between. I soon learned that writing nasty and untrue things about Wyatt Earp was a cottage industry, treasured by liberal revisionists.

“…Graham says Obama was on the defensive – especially on a public health insurance option that Graham says is off the table and has been for a while. Not only does Graham think it “is dead,” but it has “probably been dead a long time.” “We just throw it in the garbage can,” he added….”
“…From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime. Our nation has been put on notice, we’re not immune from attack. We will take defensive measures against terrorism to protect Americans. Today, dozens of federal departments and agencies, as well as state and local governments, have responsibilities affecting homeland security….”
Would someone like to take a chance explaining why the Obama Administration and the State Department have YET to confirm or deny the story that Hillary Clinton was the subject to an al Qaeda plot last month in Kenya?
….If the attempt on Hillary’s life did occurr, and Obama’s Administration can be revealed as having covered up the information, and the MSM is involved in ignoring it, Hillary Clinton may have the 2012 nomination given to her on a silver platter.
Remember: It’s the cover-up that gets you.
I can’t think of any greater punishment to force upon the MSM. They could be forced (sooner than we expect) to admit that George W. Bush was right and their tin god is made of transparent plastic.
One of the more fascinating tidbits of historical trivia is the fact that the first official shot of the Civil Was fired in South Carolina, by Abner Doubleday. Yea, THAT Abner Take Me Out to The Ballgame Doubleday. Quite possibly the first official shot of a growing uncivil war between We The People and the Democrats was fired on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 by Joe Wilson.
