Laugh From the Past

Anyone who blames Chairman Zero for rarely opening his mouth without guidance from the indispensible TOTUS must have forgotten this guffaw-inducing scene:

On a reminder from Atomic Lib Smasher.

What the fool was trying to say is that free preventive care is cheaper in the "long run" than emergency room care. How hard is that to say? Idiot.

Problem is, that rationale is wrong. We hear it in various forms from liberals all the time. There's an even "longer run" we have to consider. It's costlier still to institute socialism and kill the economy by making it too comfortable to be unproductive. I'm willing to pay for a margin of inefficiency, and allow the possibility of discomfort, in order to keep a free market society.

Obama americas send elected dictator since BILL CLINTON was the first

To accuse BHO of being unable to think on his feet is to suggest that his 2008 debates with Dems and with McCain were examples of him just getting lucky with his syntax for 90 minutes a pop, extemporaneously. (Apologies for the big word).

If you truly believe him to be deficient in the word-department, then you're sadly mistaken. Criticize the radical nature of his politics and plans, but at least be honest enough to admit that in a game a Scrabble with GWB, the Vegas line would favor Obama by 200 points.

don't feed it.

It's obviously been fed enough. And washed it down with Kool-Aid. I mean, c'mon, all Dear Teleprompter had to do at the "debates" was spew out soundbites he had practiced and drilled on 1,000 times in front of moderators who were invariably friendly left-wing journalists.

We don't have real political debates in this country, where anyone can ask questions and where candidates are really challenged. We get these stilted, rehearsed, carefully staged interview segments. The only one who asked Dear Teleprompter a challenging question in 2008 was Joe the Plumber... and we all know how DT handled *that*.

Score V: 1 Rando: 0

Can't resist. So by the arbitrary standards of right thinking Americans like V, the whole thing's a fixed sham. V's got a point on the moderators, however (damn him). Two PBS anchors, Brokaw and Bob Schieffer. I might debate Schieffer being pink, but I gotta say V wins the point of (at least perceived) debate bias.

But isn't that a bigger indictment of the stupid saps from the right, who had the Congress AND the White House, then lost both. If V's reasoning is extended, there's no way that they should have been in power in the first place (what with the Left's power). But there they were and they were either stupid or corrupt to let it slip away.

As a reminder: the score is 5-3 in presidential elections over the last 28 years, with Repub Presidents outnumbering Dems 3-2 since Reagan. Yeah it's all fixed by the left-wing MSM. No doubt. THAT explains how the 109th, 108th, and 107th Congresses all had Repub majorities in BOTH houses. Some conspiracy.

What I love about this country is that the people choose to change their government from time to time. BHO won this time. Fair and Square. That's what the people wanted.

To belittle and vilify that choice is to disrespect the process and the people of this country. As they said in Animal House: "And I'm not going to sit here while you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!"

Doesn't the fact that the media is in the tank for Obama count? The powers that control the media made damn sure that every negative story-- every tidbit of speculation about Obama-- was shitcanned before it could even be investigated fully. Does none of this count in your book, Fat Stanley? It's the media blank-out of anything negative that lead to so many brainwashed automatons who went in believing that Obama was worthy of sainthood. There's no way in world that the Republicans stood a chance of winning anything significant this year-- a year where we saw huge chunks of the voting public completely incapable of telling what each candidate stood for. But I know you'll deny all of this and call me a wingnut or something else delightful.

For you, Fatass Stanley to insinuate Barry represents The United States of America IS an insult to it!

Obama won, America lost.

Has anyone noticed, Barry without his teleprompter turns into Joe Biden. Could it be.......

A little insight to the reason for Obama's incompetence...

What’s behind Obama’s Teleprompter addiction?
