• “If there is a mystery at the heart of Barack Obama’s “Dreams From My Father”, one thing is not left a mystery, the fact that Barack Obama organized his life on the ideals given to him by his Kenyan father. Obama tells us, ‘All of my life, I carried a single image of my father, one that I .. tried to take as my own.’ (p. 220) And what was that image? It was ‘the father of my dreams, the man in my mother’s stories, full of high-blown ideals ..’ (p. 278) What is more, Obama tells us that, ‘It was into my father’s image .. that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself.’ And also that, ‘I did feel that there was something to prove .. to my father’ in his efforts at political organizing. (p. 230)”

    Greg Ransom is digging up {ahem} “legacy”. Go read it all and be shocked… shocked, to discover the commies in the closet.

    Nor should you be, Billy….but you know, it does beg the question about how, for example, a Robert Mugabe would fare with an Obama foreign policy. Or, Fidel’s replacement. In the end, I suppose that the only difference between an Obama Presidency, in that regard and a Clinton one, would be the difference between advancement of communism by means of carelessness in Clinton’s case, and a willing  and indeed, vigorous prostitution in Oabama’s case. To be honest, I’d be hard pressed to tell you which would be worse, then.

  •  As I said the other day, every once in a while, the true level of vitriol, and just plain hatred, leaks out of Democrats. the most recent case involves the Petraus hearings, yesterday wherein we see West Virginia Democrat Senator Jay Rockefeller in an interview in the Charleston Gazette:

    “McCain was a fighter pilot, who dropped laser-guided missiles from 35,000 feet. He was long gone when they hit. What happened when they (the missiles) get to the ground? He doesn’t know. You have to care about the lives of people. McCain never gets into those issues.”

    Look, aside from his being clueless about the weaponry about a Vietnam-era aircraft, (Laser guided bombs?) … isn’t it interesting that a draft dodger like Jay Rockefeller would have the sheer gall to make such a statement? Says Bruce at Q&O yesterday:

    Speaking of insensitive, that has to rank up there with some of the most clueless and insensitive statements ever uttered. Talk about “Stereotypes ‘R Us”.

    Indeed. While obviously, the remark was a political one aimed at the Presidential candidate from the party opposite, what he’s managed to do is to label anyone in the military who direacts weapons fire against an enemy target as uncaring. Gee, there’s a message to be sending our uniforms, huh?

    I’ll tell you, gang, that in all of this, we are (once again) clearly shown the vitriol that Democrats harbor. Apologies or no, (And I found Rockefellers disingenuous, at least… does it extend to all pilots, or is this just Jay Rockefeller weaseling out of his own words, again?) …this vitriol, this hatred is what drives Democrats. Every once in a while, and this is one such time, their real values, their real feelings, their real motivations peek out for all to see.

  • I note that reports have Oprah Winfrey’s poularity dropping like a laser guided bomb from a Vietnam era plane…(II hadda get that one in)  Why is it falling so fast? Apparently it has to do with her endorsement of Obama.  We’ve seen the popularity of stars of both stage and screen drop like stones after endorsing a whacko position. the Baldwin Brothers. Viggo Mortensen. Mellencamp. etc. Why should Winfrey be any different?  The obvious question becomes why get into that mess in the first place? The answer is simple enough…; You either visably lean left, or you get the cold shoulder from Hollywood. The recently brought up example of ChuckHeston should show us that.
  • By now, it’s old news that Mark Penn got canned, to quell the oncoming rebellion from the Unions over a Free Trade bill, with Columbia, which Penn was in the process of trying to get passed. well, it turns out, now that a goodly number of people on her staff were doing the same thing.  Gonna fire them all, Hillary?  Mind, I supprt the free trade agreement with Columbia if for no other reason than it annoys Hugo Chavez, and the unions here in the States. Which come to think on it, now,  are pretty much the same thing.
  • So, just now the word comes that according to the governmental investigation, Joe Lieberman’s website crashed on it’s own. You know, I suppose I could accept that, if I trusted the technical ability of government hacks, particularly as regards network security. As you may have figured out by now, I most certainly do not, any more than I trust government expertise in about any area… particularly where there’s even a slight chance of political motivations involved.

  1. That Jay Rockefeller slandered John McCain was minor concern of mine. The McCain campaign is more that able to handle a nitwit like Rockefeller.

    It did bother me a lot, that Rochefeller slandered all airman, many of whom are no longer here to defend themselves.  Rochefeller slanderd every airman who ever flew a combat mission in theater.  That is not forgivable. 

    He apologized before I got a post up.

    McCain’s task was even tougher.  If he got through hostile territory, which he dddn’t that last mission, he had make a carrier landing.

  2. Well, yeah, I know that happened pretty fast. But, that the thing was hanging out or not, yet, was beside the point, to my mind.
    We’re going to continue to see this kind of hate leaking out between now and the election. We shuld be able to ID the stuff for what it is.
