Late Night Musings - Bush Was a Better Speaker Than Obama!!

I must go to sleep, but I couldn't help watching some video of Obama, which then forced me to go back and look at video of Bush. I remember everyone always ridiculing Bush because of the way he spoke, and to be honest, I frequently lamented his lack of communication skills. Yet, comparing the two men now, I stand corrected. Obama might be a better speech-reader, but at least Bush can string together more than eight words at a time before going, "Uuuhhh...uhhh...uuhhhh..uh...uhh..uuuuhhhh..." I'm actually starting to get embarrassed for Obama. Plus, Bush spoke from the heart many times. I was hugely disappointed with Bush's fiscal irresponsibility, from his involvement in the growth of government to his involvement with the bailouts. However, I believe the heart of this common man was dedicated to protecting this nation from any more terrorist attacks. I feel like he was the father of the USA, perched on her stoop, all night long, quietly watching over our safety. For this I will be eternally thankful and I do believe historians will tell the real story that the MSM hid and discarded.

I give you, Obama vs. Bush:

Republican Alternatives to CRAP

Really, it's not that hard to beat crap. Via Michelle Malkin, The Republican Road to Recovery. I read about half of it and I gotta say, it appears, at first glance, to be MUCH better than the Dem's plans for us... but I need to finish it and then mull it over. I have to get some sleep tonight though, so I'll have to finish it tomorrow. Take a look and see for yourselves.

McDermott Scared of Deep Tones and Straight Faces

Some local news about our favorite commie, Jim McDermott. Apparently he now has a blog (H/T: Steve Beren) over at the new online version of the Seattle PI.  A sample:
A few weeks ago the House Ways and Means Committee, of which I am a Member, held a hearing on climate change. One prominent witness called by the other party to testify said he didn't think climate change was real. He said it with a straight face and using deep tones meant to convey that he was the expert and we were rank amateurs.
"He said it with a straight face and using deep tones..." What a jerk, eh? Hello? McFly? Maybe he was presenting his opinions with a straight face because he REALLY BELIEVES WHAT HE IS SAYING!!! Gosh!!! And it is quite possible, bear with me now, that he was attempting to convey the seriously calamitous consequences of your own clumsily held environazi, alarmist viewpoint. Maybe, just maybe, that's why he was using those scary, scary, deep tones. Don't be scared Jim, hopefully you won't have to listen to any of those scary "willful deniers" for much longer, because hopefully you will be out a job before long. SNAP.

Well, if that scientist got ol' Jimmy's panties in a twist, then I'm sure he is going to be horrified to know that abnormally low levels of CO2 can cause sudden fainting and (now in a deep tone) even death.

On a side note: is it not some violation of campaign financing to allow an elected official to be a regular blogger on your news site? Does anyone know if this is just inappropriate or actually somewhat illegal?

Anyhow, you know what you must do, right? Keep an eye on his PI blog and make your voice heard. He won't listen, but we'd better use our right to free political speech while we still have it.

Thank God for DeMint

I'm not joking. I saw this over at Hot Air and just had to post it right away. He is so on-point about everything. Government is working hard to create a void in charitable and voluntary service so that they can swoop in, with your tax dollars, to create service groups that promote their preferred causes. It is sickening. But at least there are some jewels in Congress right now, and DeMint is one 'em.

Some good news is that the tea parties are collecting food donations for local food banks, and regardless of the presumptuous and greedy politicians, we will continue to take care of our brothers and sisters in need without any darned bill demanding that we do.

When You Just Need to Laugh

I love these guys. Seriously. Whenever you are feeling overwhelmed, so much so you can't even bear to watch or listen to the news (you know who you are... thank you for the pizza and brownies!! hee hee) go check this site out: The People's Cube. I'm sure many of you have seen it, but if you haven't yet, or just haven't seen it in a while, go there. Grab a drink, put your feet up, and laugh at their brilliance and satire. They have a second site that was a riot during the campaign season, and still satisfies today. It's akin to the "Chuck Norris Facts" that were so popular not too long ago. It's the Best Obama Facts, and they are hilarious. For anyone that is totally depressed about our move towards socialism, at least someone can make us laugh.

Rahm Emanuel Equates NRA Members to Terrorists

Isn't it funny that the guys who actually fly planes into buildings, kidnap innocent people and chop off their heads, and openly call for the destruction of our nation cannot be called terrorists, but we, the lawful citizens of the United States who are members of the NRA, are considered terrorists? Rahm "Scar" Emanuel is like a nightmare version of Jeff Foxworthy. Instead of making innocent correlations about rednecks, Emanuel makes correlations like this: if you're a member of the NRA, then you might be a terrorist.

This is even more disturbing in light of the story coming out of Missouri about the attempts to tie Ron Paul supporters, libertarians, constitutionalists, etc. to militias and terrorism. My guess is Rahm's idea is that if you decree that suspected terrorists cannot have guns, and then you label supporters of the 2nd Amendment as terrorists, you then can revoke the gun rights belonging to that suspected group.

Two things come to mind:
1. I thought we were not allowed to just bandy about the term "terrorist" so lightly. We also, according to Napolitano, cannot use "terrorism" anymore either. Those terrorist attacks are actually "man-made disasters." So a Ron Paul supporter can now be considered a suspected terrorist, while a prisoner at Guatanamo Bay who was caught trying to murder and terrorize American troops and Iraqi civiliations must not be labeled as such.
2. Someone needs to get the Thomas Moore Law Center to file a suit because I'm preeeeeeetty sure this is profiling.

I just had a very scary thought. Maybe Rahm is the one behind The One's Teleprompter!
