Obama: King of Excuses

Obama on August 15, 2011:

“We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, got the economy moving  again. … But over the last six months, we’ve had a run of bad luck.”

George Washington:

“Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.”

Obama is full of excuses.  And empty of any self-accountability whatsoever…..As only Krauthammer can elaborate:

A troubled nation wonders: How did we get mired in 9.1 percent unemployment,  0.9 percent growth and any economic outlook so bad that the Federal Reserve  pledges to keep interest rates at zero through mid-2013 — an admission that it  sees little hope on the horizon?

Bad luck, explains our president. Out of nowhere came Japan and its supply-chain disruptions, Europe and its debt problems, the Arab Spring and  those oil spikes. Kicked off, presumably, by various acts of God (should He not  be held accountable too?): earthquake and tsunami. (Tomorrow: pestilence and  famine. Maybe frogs.)……

…A plague of bad luck and bad faith — a recalcitrant providence and an  unpatriotic opposition. Our president wrestles with angels. Monsters of mythic  proportions.

A comforting fantasy. But a sorry excuse for a failing economy and a flailing  presidency.

Obama is a miserable failure at leading this great country.  However, Obama likely considers his promotion of class warfare, socialism, government/business alliances, and record welfare state as success.

Obama’s success = America’s failure.  Gee where have I heard something like that before?

Look, what he’s talking about is the absorption of as much of the private sector by the US government as possible, from the banking business, to the mortgage industry, the automobile business, to health care.  I do not want the government in charge of all of these things. I don’t want this to work. ……

…… We want to promote failure, we want to promote incompetence, we want to stand by and not object to what he’s doing simply because of the color of his skin?  Sorry.  I got past the historical nature of this months ago.  He is the president of the United States, he’s my president, he’s a human being, and his ideas and policies are what count for me, not his skin color, not his past, not whatever ties he doesn’t have to being down with the struggle, all of that’s irrelevant to me.  We’re talking about my country, the United States of America, my nieces, my nephews, your kids, your grandkids.  Why in the world do we want to saddle them with more liberalism and socialism?  Why would I want to do that?  So I can answer it, four words, “I hope he fails.”  And that would be the most outrageous thing anybody in this climate could say.  Shows you just how far gone we are.

Obama has failed this country (perhaps purposefully, in my opinion) but has succeeded in much of his anti-American, anti-capitalist agenda.  That agenda means America fails.  It it not too late to turn back the tide but it must be done in 2012.

Obama must be ousted in 2012…..that’s all there is to it.


Quote and Video of the day

The quote:

Rush Limbaugh today on his show speaking about Barack and Michelle Obama:

…..I wouldn’t be surprised if the Obama had marital problems because—“They’re both in love with the same guy.”

A classic Rush “tweak” coupled with a little nugget of obvious truth – Obama’s narcissism. FUNNY!
Video and audio or Rush’s comment can be viewed here.

Video of the day comes to us straight from “The ‘One-Sided’ View”….where Bill O’Reilly basically laid the truth on a couple of arrogant, blowhard Leftists….

Vodpod videos no longer available.

And Babs, it is crystal clear who the pinheads are and who is the patriot.

Kudos to Bill O’ Reilly.

“You Picked a Fine Time to Lead Us, Barack”

With nuclear arms in the hands of rogue nations and Obama’s disarming of America….the healthcare takeover, the slush fund bailouts, bashing of our allies, and on and on…..Well, all I can say is, “You Picked a Fine Time to Lead Us, Barack”  🙂

So true, so true!

Rush to Obama: “I’ll tell you, you are not a leader. You are an agitator and an organizer…”

Rush Limbaugh to Obama:  “I’ll tell you, you are not a leader. You are an agitator and an organizer”

Nail —- > Head.

Rush has penned a great letter to Obama that he read on his show today.  Audio here. 

Transcript below.  Here is the transcript on Rush’s site – (H/T: Gateway Pundit).  Read it all.  Rush is not holding back and is spot-on.

I penned a message to Obama that I would like to deliver now. Because Mr. Obama, I think it’s time we had a heart to heart talk. Let me be the father that you never had or never really knew, because I think you need some guidance. It’s time to man up. It’s time to grow up. That speech last night was an embarrassment. You couldn’t focus, you lashed out in all directions, you refused to accept responsibility for your own actions, and you were angry.

And he was, folks! He was mad. Being president is a big job. It’s a big responsibility. You wanted the position, Barack. You campaigned for it. You told the public to trust you with it, and they elected you — and you’re now president of the greatest country mankind has ever known, and yet you act like this was all coming to you, like you deserve it, that you’re better than the people you are supposed to serve and that you have no tolerance for debate or dissent. That’s not the way it works as president, Barack. We have a Constitution, we have checks and balances, we have separation of powers, we have states — and most of all, we have the people. You don’t get to impose your programs and policies on the nation and the people without our consent.

This is a representative republic, not a banana republic, and let me remind you: Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky are not our Founding Fathers. This is a nation built on individuality, built on liberty, free markets, and faith. Yet you, Barack, demand fidelity to a different belief system: A system that crushes individual initiative and free will. The president does not berate Supreme Court justices who are guests of the Congress and who have no ability to respond to your attacks. You’ve made such a mess of things, Barack, and it’s time to stop deluding yourself. It’s time to stop blaming others. You are delusional. You are delirious. It’s time for you to assume the responsibilities of a president rather than pretending to be one.

You’ve driven the nation’s debt over the edge. It is your responsibility to fix it now. Otherwise, our young people will have no future. You were wrong to grant terrorists constitutional rights. Even the libs in New York don’t want the trial there now! You, Mr. President, are endangering the security of this nation. Now fix it! Reverse course, and end the terrorists — all of them — back to Guantanamo Bay, where they belong. You are wrong to nationalize one industry after another from automobiles to banks. You are destroying competition and jobs. You need to stop what you were doing before million of more families go broke from your misguided policies. It’s not too late to stop this. I know you’re not going to stop it because last night you said you don’t quit, and I know what you mean.

You’re gonna keep plugging for the same agenda, which is going to destroy this country even more — which makes me think, Barack, that’s your objective. You know, Barack, unlike most presidents you’re dealing with a Congress that has super majorities in both houses, fellow Democrats. It amazes me that with all the talk about your ability to persuade and communicate, that you can’t even hold your own party members together anymore. Is that Bush’s fault, too? Is it is fault of the banks and the insurance companies and the lobbyists that you can’t keep your own Democrat Party unified — or is it a problem with your leadership, Barack, or lack of leadership? It’s the latter, Mr. President. I’ll tell you, you are not a leader. You are an agitator and an organizer, and a process guy, but you are not a leader. It is you who are doing something wrong.

The people in Virginia don’t like it. The people in New Jersey don’t like it. The people in Massachusetts don’t like it. The people in Massachusetts and all over the country have the ability to inform themselves outside of your sycophant press corps, and they are doing so. Members of your own governing majority don’t like what you are doing. I mean, this calls for some self-reflection and some circumspection. Has it occurred to you, Mr. President, even once that you’re not as cool as you think you are? Has it occurred to you that you are screwing up? And if it has, are you happy about that? Has it occurred to you that you have a great deal to learn and that you need to take your own measure, or are you Mr. Perfect? Are you God-sent?

Are you The One that you’ve been waiting for? See, I have a little concern there may be a psychological issue at play here. I don’t say this to demean you, Barack. I say it because I’m concerned. I mean, Tom Daschle was always “concerned” and I like the word. I’m concerned. You seem to have a whole lot of enemies, at least in your own mind. A partial list would include Fox News, insurance companies, banks, oil companies, the “special interests,” the Supreme Court, Republicans, talk show hosts, executives, anyone or any business that earns over $250,000 a year, mortgage companies, credit card companies — and the list goes on and on and on. You have the longest enemies list of anybody I’ve ever known.

These people are not your enemies, though, Barack. They are Americans. They are part of this country. They are part of what makes the nation work. You are not. You have nothing to do, and have had nothing to do, with this nation’s greatness. You can’t lay claim to greatness on any scale, not even rhetorical. But you have no direct relationship to the greatness of this country. You are damaging the possibility of further greatness. Nevertheless, like a bully, you continue to threaten all of these people. The Supreme Court, Big Oil, Big Pharmaceutical, Big Retail, talk show hosts, Fox News, the list goes on. You threaten anybody who does not agree with you. You try to intimidate them. You smear them. Your sycophantic media goes right along and carries your water. But this is not what presidents do…

Now all of the libs out there will persecute Rush for conveying his opinion about Obama very pointedly. Of course, those same libs are praising Obama today for a State of the Union Speech that was low on truth and respect and high in the amount of condescenscion Obama rained down on the American People, Congress, Republicans, Banks, Private Industry and the Supreme Court.

And there are those on the right who will wring their hands in worry about the “tone” of Rush’s words. You know…we don’t want to be like the Left are when berating George W. Bush at every turn.

But it must be remembered that when a strong statement is made about Obama, it is not the same as the lies that were perpetuated (and still are) about George W. Bush. Those lies encompassed false stories about Bush’s intentions for the war, his prosecution of the war, and almost everything Bush achieved while in office.

But, the BIG difference between what the Libs have done to Bush and what Rush has clearly stated to Obama is that the Libs had to lie about Bush. And then perpetuate the lies.

What Rush has laid out about Obama is becoming more and more clear to many Americans every day. Obama’s contempt for our country, its Constitution, its tradition and people who don’t praise his Far Left agenda is clear.
GW Bush has never had contempt for America or its people.

Thanks Rush…you said what I wish I’d said.

Another great quote of the day

From Rush Limbaugh, discussing his stay in a Hawaiian hospital last week while Obama vacationed just miles away:

“I kept worrying that Obama would visit me in the hospital. I’m sure the main reason he didn’t is that he thought he would heal me.”

Barack Hussein Obama…mmm…mmmm..mmmm!

50 DAYS to rip a big fat gaping hole into Freedom and Capitalism

Wow….I’ve been meaning to make such a list as this, but Gateway Pundit has already done it.

Hard to believe we are only 3.4% of the way complete with President Obama’s term.  God forbid that this man is allowed 8 years…in that case, we are only1.7% of the way through America’s long struggle with a President who has declared war —not on our enemies — but on our freedom, our businesses, our children, babies in the womb, our military, and our allies.

Let this bit of reality soak in for a while and remember the small amount of time it took to do this much damage.  From Gateway Pundit:

50 Days That Changed the World
…It’s hard to imagine we’re only 50 days into the Barack Obama Presidency.

** Obama is on track to spend more money than any person in the history of the planet.
** Obama and Pelosi’s stimulus bill was the largest spending bill in the history of the planet.
** Obama and democrats have already saddled America’s children and grand children with massive debt. Not that this bothers them.

** He’s lost at least 3 administration nominees due to tax fraud.
** He’s promoted a tax cheat to run the IRS and Treasury.
** He’s insulted America’s greatest ally, Great Britain.
** He’s reneged on missile agreements with allies Poland and the Czech Republic.
** His administration has already met with the murderous Assad Regime from Syria.

syrian_bombing_in_beirut** Obama signed legislation to close Gitmo.
** Obama freed a dirty bomber from Gitmo to Great Britain.
** Obama told US soldiers and marines in Afghanistan, “We’re losing.”

obama_war_fatalities** Obama’s VP told US soldiers and marines that US deaths will rise in Afghanistan.
** Obama has already discussed holding peace talks with the Taliban.** The Obama stock market had its worst January in 113 years.
** The stock market had its worst February since 1933.
** The Dow has dropped faster under Obama than any other new president in 90 years.
** Obama’s budget more than doubles the national debt held by the public, and adds more to the debt than all previous presidents — from George Washington to George W. Bush — combined.
** Obama managed to spend more than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

federal-deficit-chart** Obama will quadruple the deficit this year.
** Cap & trade was introduced that will cost America 4 million jobs and cost Americans at least $700 per family per year.

** Team Obama announced easing restrictions with communist Cuba.
** Meanwhile, democrats further restricted free trade with ally Colombia.

** Obama passed legislation to fund foreign abortions.
** Obama passed legislation to fund embryonic stem cell research.

** Democrats already banned offshore drilling.
** Democrats scrapped oil and gas leases in Utah for energy development.
** Obama’s party permanently banned drilling in ANWR.

I might also add the following:

** We have experienced a very thin-skinned President who takes to attacking private citizens who dare to disagree with his Socialist policies and remaking of America…people from Joe the Plumber to Rick Santelli to Rush Limbaugh.

**North Korea and China are slinging threats America’s way aimed at seeking a response (or not) from our novice, appeasing, “overwhelmed” President:  North Korea threatening action against shooting their satellites (missiles) down and China harassing unarmed Navy ships in international waters.

**Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, called America “a nation of cowards” on race.

** Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has several embarassing faux pas while in Europe and Russia and tells the world that she seeks to “improve the United States’ image with Muslims” abroad.

**Obama ordered charges dropped against the USS Cole bombers under the guise of “Human Rights”.

233 years to build a country founded on liberty and freedom….50 DAYS to rip a  big fat, gaping hole into freedom and Capitalism.

Obama dangerously and swiftly consolidates his power while RNC’s Steele criticizes his own base

rush-silenced-picAs each day passes I think less and less about how Republicans will regain power in 2010 or 2012, but more and more about “HOW DO WE SAVE OUR COUNTRY?

I’ve said it to my family and friends many times over the course of the last month…..I don’t believe that we are in a fight to regain Republican power, but one to save America.   The Leftists in charge have  declared  war against freedom, liberty, the Constitution,  business, capitalism and more.  Each day they wreak more havoc and damage to our country, its citizens, and its traditions.

All the while, many in our party and many who don’t want to pay attention, believe that “this too shall pass” and it is “politics as usual”.  I don’t believe it…..I believe we are in a war to save this country!

And as I read the news today, my premise seems to be more and more accurate. 

We have a Marxist president hell-bent on transforming our country into something the Founding Fathers never intended….and who seems not to notice the stock market plummet  nor that 48% of us don’t want his brand of “change”!

dow-below-7000Obama is seemingly oblivious to the “Obama Administration Market Crash” since he began his “reign of fear” over America….why, one might being to wonder if this is exactly what Dr. Obama ordered.

Today, for example, the dow is at a level it hasn’t seen since 1997.  I was shaking my head in agreement at the words inThe Anchoress blog this morningin her reference to Obama and his lack of caring about what Americans are experiencing:

So, the Dow has now fallen, below 7,000 – declining to its lowest levels since 1997…..

My prediction: the Dow is going to go down to 6,000 and then gallop near to 5,000. Whether it crashes there or the markets and consumers will be able to pull the reins and prevent it is anyone’s guess.

The president seems wholly untroubled by any of this and is happily continuing on toward the creation of “one world” with a global “new deal” on his mind. The swiftness with which he is accruing and consolidating power is breathtaking, and most people don’t even realize he’s doing it.

That is one master of the game, America has elected. Bill Clinton wouldn’t be worthy to tie his sandals.

Oh. Reporters are staring to think it might be time to panic. Is this the narrative they really want? Get people panicking even more? Or maybe people will just laugh at the press and say, “now you’re figuring it out?”

Then you have the so-called party of conservatism and the Constitution (i.e. Republicans) continuing to shoot itself in the foot by offering Democrats more and more fodder against them.

michael-steeleContrast the fact that while “Rome is burning” the new face of the RNC, Michael Steele, is criticizing and demonizing one of his own party’s most beloved, most patriotic, and most Constitutional speakers, Rush Limbaugh.

Rush gave a FIERY speech at CPAC on Saturday afternoon…what a barn burner.   Rush expressed exactly what our RNC leaders should be espousing.   While Rush states the obvious, the RNC head is demeaning a leader who has millions of followers (more than Steele or the organized RNC at this point!). 

From CNN, here’s what Steele had to say about Rush’s CPAC speech:

“Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh’s whole thing is entertainment,” Steele said. “Yes, it is incendiary. Yes, it is ugly.”

Obama is on a mission to become dictator of American and all Michael Steele can do is criticize someone who has more respect and followers than he does at this point!

My husband sent a letter to the RNC regarding Steele’s comments….my husband is  ON TARGET here and the RNC had better take note:

Mr. Steele,

I initially welcomed your election as RNC Chairman, but now I’m not so sure.  Your recent comments, reported by CNN.com, regarding Rush Limbaugh demonstrate a surprising lack of sophistication and awareness.

You were quoted by CNN.com this morning as saying:

“Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh’s whole thing is entertainment,” Steele said. “Yes, it is incendiary. Yes, it is ugly.”

Well, Mr. Steel, Rush Limbaugh is certainly not the leader of the Republican Party, but he is more than just an “entertainer”.  He is a long-standing leading conservative with a far greater daily following than YOU currently enjoy.  Although I myself do not agree with everything Mr. Limbaugh says and does, his framing of the conservative argument is far more coherent than what has come out of the the RNC.  Regardless, it is unnecessary to throw public insults at him to retain your position of leadership.  However, by doing so, I guarantee you will tend to weaken that position. 

The Democrats, and even the President himself, view Mr. Limbaugh as a significant challenge to their agenda.  Why else would they expend so much effort in getting people like you to say things that can be reported by the media as criticism?  If you don’t realize that separating the current RNC leadership from the conservative base was and is their objective, then you are not the right person to lead the Republican Party.

The Republicans need leaders to UNIFY and expand the party while challenging the President and Congressional Democrats where appropriate.  The Republicans DO NOT need someone in a RNC leadership position delivering media quotes that tend to alienate MILLIONS of conservative Americans.  You don’t have to publicly identify yourself with Rush Limbaugh’s commentary, but you should adhere to the age old wisdom about keeping quiet if you don’t have something nice to say about people popular within your own group.

You’re new in the job and I still have hope, but you, sir, need to smarten up and NOT do the Democrat’s work.


(SharpRightTurn’s husband)

You know, Mr. Steele, instead of demeaning many of your supporters and their intelligence, maybe you could offer a few words of support for an effective member of the party (Rush) or even for those of us actively protesting the “war from within” against our country—-something, please!
