Obama Whiffs

By INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY | Posted Friday, May 16, 2008 4:20 PM PT

Appeasement: In slamming President Bush and John McCain, Barack Obama seemed to follow political consultant Jim Carville’s rule: “You’ve got to be willing to fight.” But what Obama is defending is indefensible.

When the first President Bush charged in 1992 that the only way rival Bill Clinton could keep his big-spending campaign promises was by raising taxes on families earning $36,000 and up, Clinton hit back hard.

“It is a disgrace to the American people that the president of the United States would make a claim that is so baseless, so without foundation, so shameless, in an attempt to get votes under false pretenses,” he charged.

Of course, Clinton proceeded to raise taxes on families making way below $36,000. But his attack worked. Carville, the man who ran that historically successful campaign, believed in the art of counterpunch. One of his “Ten Rules for Progressives to Live By” is: “Sometimes you’ve got to be willing to fight. Period.”

Now, in a fashion nearly identical to Clinton, Sen. Obama has hit back hard at his accusers, President Bush and Sen. McCain. In this case, however, the counterpunch may end up being a wild haymaker that only makes its thrower look foolish.

In South Dakota on Friday, Obama complained that Bush, in a speech the day before to Israel’s Knesset, “accused me and other Democrats of wanting to negotiate with terrorists and said we were appeasers no different from people who appeased Adolf Hitler.” Then he said McCain “has repeated this notion that I’m prepared to negotiate with terrorists. I have never said that.”

But Obama’s Web site says he will negotiate with terrorists. “Obama is the only major candidate who supports tough, direct presidential diplomacy with Iran without preconditions,” it states.

In Friday’s speech, Obama’s proposed weapons against Iran were “deeper isolation and steeper sanctions.” Would such tactics have changed Hitler’s behavior in the 1930s? Why would it change that of another madman like Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

Iran may be blowing up U.S. troops in Iraq and sponsoring terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah, but what Obama worries about is that “Osama bin Laden is still at large sending out videotapes with impunity.” Since 9/11, how many al-Qaida videotapes have crashed into crowded buildings on U.S. soil?

That was only one of Obama’s gaffes. He also blamed the Bush administration for Hamas’ control of Gaza because the U.S. “insisted that we should have democratic elections in the Palestinian Authority.” Is Obama against freedom for Mideast Muslims?

Obama also gave the New York Times a look into his thinking on Iran. “We can encourage actors to think in practical and not ideological terms,” he said in an interview.

But practicality is ideology for Iran — whose president calls Israel a “stinking corpse” — just as the practical and the ideological merged in Hitler’s Germany.

However hard Obama fights the label of appeaser, his inability to recognize evil disqualifies him from the presidency in wartime

Went to a neighbors and branded today and will go to another tomorrow. The wind gusted up to 40 and was a pain. Rope whacking me and my horses in the face isn’t fun. I’m tired.

May 13th. MY fathers birthday. Wonder if I will ever think of this date any other way?

Another branding today. Here’s some pictures from a branding the other day on the fifth.

Me on Beaver, holding a cow’s feet so they could trim her.

Here we are sorting the cows from the calves. Only horses used.

I think this is the date of the latest blizzard we have ever had in this country. Don’t look like we will get one today.

 

Yearling got here yesterday. They sure are enjoying that green grass, even if it’s short.

 

Headed to another branding today and tomorrow. I love vacation time!

Happy Mothers day to all you wonderful mothers. If you aren’t a mother, then get in touch with yours. I can’t anymore. Wish I could.

 

Found a new blog this morning and it’s got some great stuff on it if you aren’t a liar, or liberal. Check it out.

Going to the neighbors to brand in a bit. We have the rest of the yearlings coming in today also. We got over .70 hundreds of rain and some snow yesterday, but the roads seem pretty dry. I think we are having a wet spring. Woo hoo!

Heres what it looks like this morning at about 10 am.

Fun, fun, fun!

 

Pairs are handling it fine. The new set of yearlings that came in the other day, think it really sucks!

 

6:30 pm update! Snow is all gone.

Reason’s behind global warming alarm?

Just how stupid are these people……

Go read this   http://thinking-right.com/    and then send a letter. It’s such a small thing for us to do for those who serve!

I got this from  http://www.blondesagacity.com/. You might want to check it out.

The U.K.’s Daily Mail did a piece on the biggest Hollywood Eco-hypocrites
Topping the list were Sting & wife Trudy. Apparently once she had her chef fly 100 miles to make her youngest a bowl of pasta…then there are all the mansions and Sting’s 750 person entourage.

Chris Martin (Coldplay lead singer and Gwyneth Paltrow’s husband): flies at least 100,000 miles in his private jet each year. I have to admit, that I loved seeing this pompous ass on the list… He brags about the mango trees he’s planted and flies home between shows to write songs…

Leonardo DiCaprio (Apparently known as ‘Leonardo the Lear Jet Liberal’) has yet to take up a request to make a pledge to swear off private jets–even though he has an “Environmental Documentary” coming out next month.

Brangelina: Brad Pitt drives a Prius (like Leonardo), but they used as much as 11,000 gallons of fuel in ONE DAY with their use of private planes.

Also included are John Travolta, Madonna, Babs, and Prince Charles.

The article says that the “make yourself feel better about your huge carbon footprint” charity of planting mango trees through ‘Future forests’ is a scan. most of the trees planted thus far have died and experts agree that carbon offsetting a celebrity lifestyle by planting a few trees is a huge scam.

 

And this. I’d read it before but it might be time to come around and have a little look at it again.

President Bush’s Resignation Speech;

“Normally, I start these things out by saying “My Fellow Americans”, not doing it this time. If the polls are any indication, I don’t know who more than half of you are anymore. I do know something terrible has happened, and that you’re really not fellow Americans any longer.

I’ll cut right to the chase here: I quit. Now before anyone gets all in lather about me quitting to avoid impeachment, or to avoid prosecution, let me assure you: There’s been no breaking of laws or impeachable offenses in this office.

The reason I’m quitting is simple. I’m fed up with you people. I’m fed up because you have no understanding of what’s really going on in the world. Or of what’s going on in this once-great nation of ours. And the majority of you are too damned lazy to do your homework and figure it out.

Let’s start local. You’ve been sold a bill of goods by politicians and the news media. Polls show that the majority of you think the economy is in the tank. And that’s despite record numbers of homeowners, including record numbers of MINORITY homeowners. And while we’re mentioning minorities, I’ll point out that minority business ownership is at an all-time high. Our unemployment rate is as low as it ever was during the Clinton administration. I’ve mentioned all those things before, but it doesn’t sink in.

Despite the shock to our economy of 9/11, the stock market has rebounded to record levels and more Americans than ever are participating in these markets. Meanwhile, all you can do is whine about gas prices, and most of you are too damn stupid to realize that gas prices are high because there’s increased demand in other parts of the world, and because a small handful of noisy idiots are more worried about polar bears and beachfront property than your economic security. We face real threats in the world.

Don’t give me this “blood for oil” crap. If I were trading blood for oil I would’ve already seized Iraq ‘s oil fields and let the rest of the country go to hell. And don’t give me this ‘Bush Lied; People Died’ crap either. If I were the liar you morons take me for, I could’ve easily had chemical weapons planted in Iraq so they could be ‘discovered.’ Instead, I owned up to the fact that the intelligence was faulty.

Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam had the goods, same as me. Let me also remind you that regime change in Iraq was official US policy before I came into office. Clinton established that policy. Bet you didn’t know that, did you?

You idiots need to understand that we face a unique enemy. Back during the cold war, there were two major competing political and economic models squaring off. We won that war, but we did so because fundamentally, the Communists wanted to survive, just as we do. We were simply able to out spend and out-tech them.

That’s not the case this time. The soldiers of our new enemy don’t care if they survive. In fact, they want to die. That’d be fine, as long as they weren’t also committed to taking as many of you with them as they can. But they are. They want to kill you, and the bastards are all over the globe. You should be grateful that they haven’t gotten any more of us here in the United States since September 11. But you’re not. That’s because you’ve got no idea how hard a small number of intelligence, military, law enforcement, and homeland security people have worked to make sure of that. When this whole mess started, I warned you that this would be a long and difficult fight. I’m disappointed how many of you people think a long and difficult fight amounts to a single season of ‘Survivor.’

Instead, you’ve grown impatient. You’re incapable of seeing things through the long lens of history, the way our enemies do. You think that wars should last a few months, a few years, tops.

Making matters worse, you actively support those who help the enemy. Every time you buy the New York Times, every time you send a donation to a cut-and-run Democrat’s political campaign, well, you might just as well FedEx a grenade launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the same thing.

In this day and age, it’s easy enough to find the truth. It’s all over the Internet; it just isn’t on the pages of the New York Times or on NBC News. But even if it were, I doubt you’d be any smarter. Most of you would rather watch American Idol.

I could say more about your expectations that the government will always be there to bail you out, even if you’re too stupid to leave a city that’s below sea level and has a Cat 5 hurricane approaching. 

I could say more about your idiotic belief that government, not your own wallet, is where the money comes from. But I’ve come to the conclusion that were I to do so, it would sail right over your heads.

So, I quit. I’m going back to Crawford. I’ve got an energy-efficient house down there (Al Gore could only dream of) and the capability to be fully self-sufficient. No one ever heard of Crawford before I got elected, and as soon as I’m done here pretty much no one will ever hear of it again. Maybe I’ll be lucky enough to die of old age before the last pillars of America fall.

Oh, and by the way, Cheney’s quitting too. 

That means Pelosi is your new President. You asked for it – you can have her. Watch what she does carefully, because I still have a glimmer of hope that there are just enough of you remaining who are smart enough to turn this thing around in 2008.

So that’s it. 

God bless what’s left of America . Some of you know what I mean. The rest of you – kiss my ass!”

It’s wet out there this morning! And I love it!

 

Check this out. Too bad they can’t get anything right. what amazes me is that people still listen to them and think they know what they are talking about…
