Are we feeling better now that Obama is in office?
On Christmas Day, Barack Obama was not notified of a terror attempt for three hours. In an attempt to prove that he could react when necessary, he brought the state of Hawaii to a hault in order to get back to the estate where he is vacatining. Earlier on Monday, Barack Obama, in what was an obvious attempt to avoid a potential lawsuit, fled his golf game (he has played more in one year than GWB did in 8 years) to check on some little kid who managed to get hurt while obviously playing with his kids. One wonders just how much money this emergency motorcade cost the be-leaguered American taxpayer, but then it is rather obvious that America’s very own POTUS version of Barney Fife doesn’t give a damn about the taxpayer.
Barney Fife and the Constitution of the United States of America. Yea, it reminds The Pink Flamingo of Barack Obama, too. Hugh Hewitt has a litany of The Barney Fife Presidency’s Failures – which are legion.
What if ….
Suppose the Obama Administration needed a diversion to take the collective conservative mind off health care ….
Is this a connect the dots or just a perfect storm for the Dems in that health care has been pushed out of the headlines?
Did a second attempt occur on the 27th? Same flight, same nationality?
The Pink Flamingo wants to know just when TSA is going to demand men remove their underwear before boarding a plane. If they really want to crack down on the latest version of getting a bomb on a plane, then they should require the removal of all underwear along with shoes when going through a security check-point. How absurd is this going to get before people do what I do and absolute refuse to fly? The good news is that Napolitano (the former AZ governor who left the state in such an abject mess) says things worked just hunky dory!
Why the heck did it take THREE hours to tell Obama that an incident had occurred? Why is he getting a pass from the media while golfing so darn much? Think about G. H. W. Bush and his vacation. Think about GWB and his time off. Obama works so hard….he needs a break!
Was there a specific reason for the timing? I don’t know about you, but The Pink Flamingo is beginning to think this is also about a spoiled brat monster who wants to stick it to his family and his people. Don’t ever discount the idea that this guy wanted to humiliate his family. The timing of the incident and the timing of the Nigerian ethnic meetings over the weekend is just too precious to deny.
The Real Barack Obama has picked up The Pink Flamingo Part One of The Smell Test and added quite a bit. It is a must read! (Thanks SV!) The Pink Flamingo would like to remind readers about an alleged plot in Kenya to assassinate Hillary Clinton, a plot yet to be confirmed or denied. It just makes a person wonder about a few things – how Obama ignored this one too.

The Far Right has a serious problem. They are out of control, over-run by abject stupidity and perhaps even more than a little “hate”. Republicans are stupid. The reason Republicans are stupid is because they are honest, trusting, and honorable. That’s Republican, not the Far Right. The Far Right is no different from the Far Left. They are extreme hate-filled, irrational losers who are determined to make everyone else as miserable and pathetic as are they.
They are becoming so pointed in their hate that they are no longer even bothering to hide their lies about our good Republican officials. When you have people like Glenn Beck calling the shots, going out of his way to destroy any Republican who dares call him to task for his lies then there is a problem.
The Pink Flamingo wishes she believed in conspiracy theories. If so, my favorite would be the possibility that the far right and the tea party freaks are funded by the DNC. How else can you explain their irrational LOSER hatred and insanity? How else can you explain their suicidal decision to go for conservative purity in the GOP, thus empowering Nancy Peolosi, Harry Reid, and Barack Obama and destroy our country?
Patriots – I think not!
Could we possibly be honest here? Nah, we’re dealing with the far, irrational Right. They dumped honesty when they dumped Reagan.
39 In those days Mary set out and went with haste to a Judean town in the hill country, 40where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. 41When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit 42and exclaimed with a loud cry, ‘Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. 43And why has this happened to me, that the mother of my Lord comes to me? 44For as soon as I heard the sound of your greeting, the child in my womb leapt for joy. 45And blessed is she who believed that there would be* a fulfilment of what was spoken to her by the Lord.’

Thanks to Lindsey and Jim DeMint’s prodding, SC AG Henry McMaster is organizing several of his colleagues to take on the unhealthy bill on a constitutional basis.
““This morning, I received a letter from South Carolina’s two United States Senators, Lindsey Graham and Jim DeMint, asking me, as Attorney General, to investigate the legality of the special funding arrangements negotiated with Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson to secure his vote for the Senate Democrat’s health care reform bill which moved forward toward eventual passage in the Senate by a vote of 60-40.”
Henry is working with Washington State AG Mark McKenna to go after the bill to see if the “deal” sets a new legal precedent. He is also discussing the possibility of AG’s from Texas, Alabama, North Dakota, Colorado, and Michigan to join in some sort of legal action.

UPDATED: Right after Parker Griffith switched parties, according to Race42012, Erick Erickson has called for someone to run against him and defeat him. Would someone please tell The Pink Flamingo what the you know what is going on here? Someone needs to explain the facts of life to idiots like Erickson! If you want to know what is wrong with conservatives, just read this.
“…No less than a few minutes had passed after word got out that Democrat Rep. Parker Griffith would be switching to the GOP before Erick Erickson of RedState.com had called on him to be defeated in a primary. This is quite simply the stupidest reaction anyone could ever have to this news. Griffith represents a district that has been held by the Democrats for 140 years. So rather than embrace the fact that Griffith is more than we should normally hope for in this particular district, Erickson has decided to target him, a move that will easily hand the seat right back to Nancy Pelosi. I can’t stress this enough: this is a district that hasn’t had a GOP representative since 1869! Rather than embrace other Blue Dogs and try to use this moment to drive a permanent wedge in the Democrat caucus, Erick would prefer to widen the wedge in our own party. Democrats like Griffith were once a strong part of the Reagan Coalition, and rather than try to build a similar coalition for the future, the confused Mr. Erickson would rather continue burning the village to the ground….”

In a sign of the pending apocalypse Lindsey was a guest on O’Reilly’s show which was being hosted by Laura Ingraham. They got along quite well.
“…Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said he’s going to request South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster take a closer look at the so-called “cornhusker kickback.” Graham said if McMaster finds the deal is not on the up and up, and he could file a lawsuit on behalf of South Carolina seeking equal rights under the Constitution…”
South Carolina still has a crusading Attorney General (for about a year) who is going to make an excellent governor – Henry McMaster. Evidently he and Lindsey have come up with a way to challenge the Senate unhealthy bill.
“…Blasting Senate Democrats for what he called “backroom deals that amount to bribes,” Graham found much to complain about in their health care bill. He was particularly irked that the senator who provided that final vote to head off a Republican filibuster, Ben Nelson of Nebraska, cut a deal in which the federal government pays his state’s share of the cost for new Medicaid recipients. Graham, a South Carolina Republican, called on state Attorney General Henry McMaster to review the constitutionality of the deal, and a McMaster spokesman said he looks forward to meeting with Graham to discuss it. “There is one state in the union where new enrollees for Medicaid will be signed up and it won’t cost anybody in that state money,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “A lot of people, Republicans and Democrats, are upset by this,” Graham said. “Is it constitutional? I want the attorney general of South Carolina to look at this.”…”
PRAYER (contemporary wording)
Almighty and everliving God, who strengthened your apostle Thomas with sure and certain faith in your Son’s resurrection: Grant us so perfectly and without doubt to believe in Jesus Christ, our Lord and our God, that our faith may never be found wanting in your sight; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
“’The Class Act’ that allows long term health care insurance to be subsidized by the government and offered by the government is a Ponzi scheme in the first order that Madoff would have been proud of. It’s still in the bill. Any democratic senator that votes for the bill is a coconspirator to one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in Washington.” Lindsey Graham
In 2006 the far extreme right welcomed the advent of the “blue dogs” as a way of getting back at the GOP. Many extreme right pundits like Laura Ingraham even encouraged their listeners to vote for the more conservative Dems. I seem to remember back in 2006 how Ingraham gloated about the defeat of the GOP. Well, now those blue dogs are all full of ticks.
It’s like this. Want to know why we’re in such a mess? Don’t blame Obama. Don’t blame Harry Reid. Don’t even blame Ben Nelson. Blame every so-called conservative who voted for a Democrat or a third party loser to teach the GOP a lesson. You know who you are – and YOU DID THIS TO OUR COUNTRY.
Want to make it worse – vote for Third Party Losers and do the Tea Party Agenda thing next November.
My soul doth magnify the Lord, *
and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.
For he hath regarded *
the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold from henceforth *
all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me, *
and holy is his Name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him *
throughout all generations.
He hath showed strength with his arm; *
he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat, *
and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things, *
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy has holpen his servant Israel, *
as he promised to our forefathers,
Abraham and his seed for ever.

Newt Gingrich has regained his voice and his passion. He is starting to sound like the Newt Gingrich of old. Pink Flamingo reader Sally Vee suggested this video. It takes about 10 minutes and is better in the HD version.
The Pink Flamingo agrees with Newt Gingrich. I don’t mind his passion about electing decent people to go to DC because he is 100% Republican. His eloquence is refreshing as is his historic take on this country. The Pink Flamingo appreciates having an educated historical perspective on things instead of empty doom and gloom rhetoric. I keep having this fantasy of Newt as POTUS with a GOP House and Senate. Golly!
Funny thing about the alleged “Tea Party Movement”, promoted and nurtured by FOX News, it is not Republican. We’re being told by Sean Hannity that it is all about a re-vitalized conservative movement. People like Jim DeMint and Ron Paul are heralded as “pure” while men like Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Bob Inglis, and Mitch McConnell are treated like dirt by conservatives as “impure”.
Well, until March and the latest ACU ratings, this is the best we can do. And – it looks like Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Bob Inglis, denigrated as “impure” may actually be “purer” conservatives than Jim DeMint and Ron Paul.
The WPost has their voting record database for the 111th Congress compiled. There are a few surprises.
“…The Post’s voting database showed that Graham voted with Republicans 91 percent of the time while the state’s junior senator stood with his party 87 percent of the time.
42for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.” 44Then they also will answer, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?” 45Then he will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.” 46And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.’
