From September 2008

John McCain says he's about change too, and so I guess his whole angle is, "Watch out George Bush -- except for economic policy, health care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy and Karl Rove-style politics -- we're really going to shake things up in Washington."

That's not change. That's just calling something the same thing something different. You know you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. You know you can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change, it's still going to stink after eight years. We've had enough of the same old thing.

Ugh. I guess this means we'll be going back to the old way of funding solar by borrowing money from the Chinese to buy their manufactured goods and letting them invest in new technology.

Obviously Petraeus is part of the global conspiracy's new world order ushering in Kenyan Islamo-fascist socialism.

Off and Running

There are now 196 who have filed a Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Election Commission to register as a 2012 presidential candidate. The candidates must have either:

  • received contributions aggregating in excess of $5,000 or made expenditures aggregating in excess of $5,000; or
  • given consent to another person to receive contributions or make expenditures on behalf of him or herself and that person has received contributions aggregating in excess of $5,000 or made expenditures aggregating in excess of $5,000 (11 CFR 100.3(a)).

  • President Obama is facing Democratic primary challenges from over 25 candidates who have filed with the FEC. I couldn't find websites for all of the candidates, but here are links to some of those who did have them:

    Anti-abortion activist Randall Terry, who told ABC news "I want to pummel Obama. I despise this presidency. He is the arch child killer of the Western Hemisphere, so I'm going to go head-to-head with him."

    Harry Braun is advocating direct democracy that circumvents congress, and switching to a solar-hydrogen based economy.

    Blogger Tiffany Briscoe understanding that "a left-wing economy is a theory of the past, similar to Mercantilism and Socialism."

    Leah Lax who would end Obamacare, the IRS, big government, and the "open door policy" of immigration.

    Willie Carter, a Texan who would take "the God fearing approach" and, along with a strong military and restoring virtue to government, would also add "firm reliance upon Divine Protection."

    Jeff Boss, whose website has the banner:


    Mike Moloney, has a progressive message:

    Bring the Troops Home Now and take care of social justice and financial sanity at home!

    Deonia Neveu, an ordinary citizen,who points out that
    “You don’t always have to have experience to be great.”

    John Sawyer, another conservative running as a Democrat, has the slogan "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. THROW THEM ALL OUT."

    On the Republican side there are over 90 candidates. My favorite is Jonathon Albert "The Impaler" Sharkey, a professional wrestler who has stated that President Obama "is even worse than Bush, and I never thought anyone could be worse than Bush. He has no idea how to run a country, nor should he be running a country." Sharkey would ban both abortion and the teaching of evolution in schools. He has run both as a Republican and on the ticket of his own Vampires, Witches, and Pagans Party.

    The Federator

    Rick Perry disapproves of Republican and Bush appointee Ben Bernanke trying to stimulate the economy anytime before election day. Apparently trying to ease the recession is treasonous as long as Obama is president.

    Foreign Affairs

    The birther controversy is an example of true bipartisanship. Although the brunt of the rumor-mongering was done by people on the right, the first to spread the accusations were mildly left of center Hillary reporters during the 2008 primaries. Of course the wild accusations about Barack Hussein Obama Jr.'s Kenyan birth are false since he wasn't even born on this planet! WAKE UP SHEEPLE!

    Monday, April 11, 2011


    A conservative Facebook friend recently taunted his liberal friends with a Billy Crystal/Edward G. Robinson inspired "Where's your Messiah now?" mini rant. He's correct that people left of center got swept away by the historical significance of a black man being elected President of the United States of America. A few months later, historical revolution was replaced by business as usual.

    I'm not sure if anyone else electable in 2008 would have done a better job than Barack Hussein Obama. Unfortunately, it's still time for the change that people wanted back in 2008. Candidate Obama wanted to work to fix America's problems in a rational, bipartisan manner. I doubt he really appreciated the sheer hatred and scorn that the far right has for him. It's time for a primary challenge on the left to remind our president of what got him elected in the first place: stopping the failed policies of war and corporate welfare.

    From Faux News:

    Obama Botches Bible Verse at Prayer Breakfast

    President Obama misquoted a familiar Bible verse during a faith-based address at the National Prayer Breakfast.

    "Those who wait on the Lord will soar on wings like eagles, and they will run and not be weary, and they will walk and not faint," the president said during a speech to several thousand people at the breakfast.

    But the actual passage, from Isaiah 40:31, states: "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

    Actually, Isaiah 40:31 states:

    לא וְקוֹיֵ יְהוָה יַחֲלִיפוּ כֹחַ, יַעֲלוּ אֵבֶר כַּנְּשָׁרִים; יָרוּצוּ וְלֹא יִיגָעוּ, יֵלְכוּ וְלֹא יִיעָפוּ. {ס}

    Straw Man in Chief

    Historian Victor Davis Hansen likens President Obama to the Wizard of Oz, a fraud behind a curtain in one of the most recent of his anti-Obama columns. He claims the "messianic spell" has been broken. After a round of shrill accusations like:
    no president in 78 years has done more to incite class resentment, envy, and polarization—and that fact is as shocking as the sun rising in the morning...
    he complains of others criticizing former presidents with the line "(a)nd are not we all tired of such empty superlatives?"
