O B A M A to a "T"! I wonder if he even realizes how his "terrorist buddy's" are laughing at him!? They've already dampened him.

President Obama and his loose-cannon sidekick Joe Biden seem to forget that the rest of the world was watching during the campaign, too.

The entire strategy was to go out and "engage" and "open a dialog" and "negotiate" with Iran, Russia, North Korea, Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, et al. Obama and Biden are too naïve to understand that they were tipping their hand, and that much of the world sees this strategy as one of weakness, not strength.

In fact, it is even worse than that - our enemies are not stupid, and are starting to react very negatively to being “played”.

What a bunch of amateurs....

Haha this reminds me of the Canadian woman who sympathized with the Taliban after September 11th, went to Afghanistan to "aide in their just cause", and was promply kidnapped and held for ransom and beaten. Still is being held I believe.

Obama least popular new leader in 40 years - except for Bill Clinton

It's official: Barack Obama is the second most reviled newbie president of the last forty years. A gallup survey today published in the Washington Times shows Obama to have an approval rating of just 56 per cent. The only president to have performed worse than that at the end of his first 100 days in office was Bill Clinton - and only then because it happened to coincide with the spectacular mishandling of the Waco siege, which might reasonably be laid at the door of ATF and FBI incompetence rather than presidential negligence.

Gun Salesman in Chief sparks 3-month guns and ammo shopping spree that is enough to supply entire Chinese and Indian armies

In just 3 months Americans bought enough guns to outfit the entire Chinese and Indian army’s combined.

You also bought 1,529,635,000 rounds of ammunition in just the month of December 2008. Yeah that is right, that is Billion with a “B”.

This is an evaluation of overall firearms and ammunition purchases based on low end numbers per Federal NIC instacheck data base Statistics. The numbers presented are only PART of the overall numbers of arms and ammunition that have been sold. The actual numbers are much higher.

Veils on Muslim customers banned... By Muslim store owners

ATAA Jewellers in Glasgow now demands that customers show their faces. It is owned by Muslims.

It is not reverse multicultural diversity.

It is not assimilation.

It is safety.

Men in veils have robbed the store.

“The store owners decided to act after two Asian men wearing traditional Muslim women’s clothes – including niqab veils – made away with thousands of pounds worth of jewelery earlier this month,” the London Telegraph reported.

Who the Hell Is This George Soros?

“The war on terror cannot be won.” The U.S. “is the main obstacle to a stable and just world.” American troops are “perpetrators” and “oppressors.” “The war on drugs is doing more harm to our society than drug abuse itself.”

Words spoken by bin Laden or Harry Reid? No. By Vlad Putin or John Murtha? Nope. By Hugo Chavez or Fidel? Nah. By a Mexican drug lord or Robert Downey? Wrong again. They are just some of the collected words of leftist wisdom spewed by a defeatist, America-hating, bizarre individual who goes by the name of George Soros

Whose society he means by “our society” is as difficult to determine as is where his allegiance lies. It can’t be in America.

According to one of his websites, “A global financier and philanthropist, George Soros is the founder and chairman of a network of foundations that promote, among other things, the creation of open, democratic societies based upon the rule of law, market economies, transparent and accountable governance, freedom of the press, and respect for human rights.”

That self-aggrandizing site fails miserably in explaining who and what this “financier and philanthropist” really is, how and where he got his money, and how and to whom he extends his generous helping hand.

Hint: It’s not to the Republican Party and it’s not to conservative causes.

Born in Budapest to Jewish parents in 1930, Soros, (original name György Schwartz), emigrated to England in 1947 and then to America in 1956. Since then, he has become one of the richest men on the planet, a position he evidently feels grants him the authority not only to make pronouncements on America’s leaders and America’s values but to manipulate our government and our people.

This week, Soros was in the news for saying that, “Former Vice President Dick Cheney’s role in approving enhanced interrogation techniques used by the CIA should be examined by a presidential commission:”

Translation: Cheney, along with former President George W. Bush, against whom Soros declared a vendetta in 2003, should be indicted, tried, convicted, hung by their thumbs or some other body part in the Mojave Desert, eaten alive by coyotes, and their remains devoured by ravenous vultures. Don Rumsfeld and Condi Rice would no doubt be third and fourth in line for the Soros gallows.

Their crime(s)? Doing all in their power to protect, defend, and preserve the United States of America, all of which are capital offenses in Soros’ book. So, too, are America’s freedoms and our free enterprise and capitalist systems, the bases of America’s amazing strength, wealth and unsurpassed standard of living.

So, what’s his problem? He has many obvious problems, among which is that George Soros has this undeniable skill and penchant for making billions as millions of others go broke and destitute.

Problem? What problem, he would say.

As millions of Americans and Western Europeans have lost their jobs, homes, and mental well-being in the worst economic downturn since the 1930’s, Soros was scoring big time. “George Soros said the current economic crisis has been the culmination of his life’s work.” This long-anticipated crisis earned him over a billion dollars last year via his unregulated Quantum hedge fund for the super rich:

In brief, Soros strove for this mess we are in and he is benefitting mightily from it as he continues his manipulations to effect a total financial and societal meltdown in the Western World. Then, the unadvertised plan is, he and his fellow thinkers and fellow travelers will step in and establish a brave new world predicated on their socialistic, communistic precepts.

He’s quite familiar with economic and political crises and has long been a master manipulator of shady schemes to utilize them to his financial advantage: . . .

God damn! You people sure have your own moonbat problems... certainly in the form of the horse faced, space cadet Michelle Bachman who implied that the Democrats are somehow responsible for flue epidemics.

Good to see Rachel Mad-Cow sliding in the ratings.

"The 9pm Rachel Maddow Show premiered on MSNBC in October, 2008. After peaking in October, its April average in the adults 25-54 demographic prized by cable news advertisers is less than half the levels in its first month and has been on a fairly steady decline during all of 2009."

Some might think its odd that ultra liberal hacks like Maddow and Olbermann are blown away by Hannity and O'Reilly in this Age of The Messian, but its clear to thinking people why this is so.

Good news! The NY flyover thing wasn't incompetence.

It was apathy.

Isn't the Hope'N'Change Administration great? You're offered a choice between stupidity and malice as an explanation for their actions, and when you're done pondering, you're left with the philosophical question as to which is the worse of those two options. They give you both choice and intellectual stimulus. Great, aren't they?

Need a 1/2 million dollars? Apply for a job, then explain you're about to get a sex-change operation. When the employer says "Um, not a good fit," sue and collect.

CNN softballs Obama's top ten gaffes

Nothing about the tragicomic Gordon Brown DVD fiasco or on getting the Queen an iPod, both of which kept getting better and better as the DVDs turned out to be the wrong format and the iPod gift was megalomanical even by this President's standards.

Nothing about insisting to Austrians that they speak a language that exists only in Obama's mind. Nothing about visibly demonstrating to Iraqi troops that he has no idea what the different units in Iraq are. They might even have included the Freeman nomination and the Durban II trainwreck, though I can see how those were less "amateur hour gaffes" and more "shots across the neoconservative bow."

Oh - and then there was that $328,000 Manhattan photo op that the White House signed off on after being told it "might set off nightmarish fears of a 9/11 replay?" It happened a day before this list came out yet somehow never came up.

But tender clips of the First Daughters? Check. A montage of the the White House puppy? Check. 10 seconds of shamelessly goofing on Bush before delivering the list in a skeptical "these are what count as gaffes now" tone?

Obama is gutting the CIA too

Politics and moral arguments aside, the end effect of the memos’ release is that people who have put their lives on the line in U.S. counterterrorism efforts are now uncertain of whether they should be making that sacrifice. Many of these people are now questioning whether the administration that happens to be in power at any given time will recognize the fact that they were carrying out lawful orders under a previous administration. It is hard to retain officers and attract quality recruits in this kind of environment. It has become safer to work in programs other than counterterrorism.
