I can’t let it go.

RINOs piss me off more than liberals. With a liberal, you know where they stand.

RINOs on the other hand, were elected for the very reason that they espoused conservative points of view and promised to uphold those views in Congress.

There are currently three RINOs that I consider traitors to the American people.

Snowe, Spectre, and Collins are traitors to the Republican Party and to every conservative that voted for them along with the rest of us that have to suffer because they don’t have the balls to stand on Conservative fiscal principles.

All three deserve to lose in the next election. At least with a Democrat, you already know you’re getting screwed.

Listen to this douche-nozzle:

I’m from the gubmint and I’m here to help!

Yeah, right.

Obama: ‘Only government can break the vicious cycle’

Posted By Bobby Eberle

Remember the old joke? A guy walks up to you and says, “Hello, I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.” People would chuckle because we all know what happens when government tries to “fix” things. Well, it looks like the joke’s on us… except no one is laughing.

On Monday night, President Obama held his first prime time press conference. As usual, when not in a majestic setting and delivering a grand speech, he stumbled with “ums” and “ers”, but was able to get out one sentence in particular that should open the eyes of all Americans. When talking about our current economic situation, Obama said, “It is only government that can break the vicious cycle.”

That’s right… even though the government got us into this mess with the sub-prime lending fiasco (to name only one), Obama tells us that it is time to throw capitalism and the business cycle out the window. Only government can solve the problem. Doesn’t that statement send shivers down your spine? It does for me!

Ethics? What ethics? I haven’t seen any yet. Obama is a liar of the first order. Typical Chicago politician, eh?

‘The Most Sweeping Ethics Reform in History’?

by Chuck Norris

First, there was Bill Richardson for commerce secretary. Second, there was William J. Lynn III, slated for the No. 2 spot at the Defense Department. Third, there was Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s appointment. Fourth, there was Nancy Killefer’s nomination as the government’s first chief performance officer. Fifth, there was former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, who would have led the Department of Health and Human Services. Sixth, there was the nomination of Rep. Hilda Solis for labor secretary.

Obama’s Picks Don’t Change the Culture in Washington

by Phyllis Schlafly

President Barack Obama has indeed made history. His selections for his Cabinet and other top government offices make a mockery of his much publicized campaign promises to give us “the most sweeping ethics reform in history” and to “close the revolving door” to lobbyists.

Some historians confer the ignominious appellation of most corrupt on President U.S. Grant of the 1870s, some on President Warren G. Harding’s Teapot Dome scandal of the 1920s, some even on President Bill Clinton. We’ll leave it to historians to judge where Obama ranks after evaluating his appointments.

Obama Voters’ Remorse

by Lorie Byrd

Three months ago Barack Obama was elected on a promise of hope and change.  After less than a month in office his message has turned to one of gloom and doom.  His approval ratings have dropped significantly, and many voters must surely wonder why the reality of the Obama presidency has not matched the promise of the Obama campaign.  Some may even be experiencing a bit of buyers’ (or voters’) remorse.

Problems began with a string of failed nominees, several with tax issues.  Add to that a confirmed Treasury Secretary with a tax problem.  These were especially embarrassing considering Vice Presidential candidate Joe Biden told voters it was “patriotic” to pay taxes.  Should voters be surprised?  Not if they were paying attention.  All voters had to do was look at the questions surrounding some of Obama’s associates, from Bill Ayers to Rev. Wright to Jim Johnson, to know there would likely be some problems with those he chose to be part of his administration.

Give him credit where it is due?

Yeah, I suppose I can do that. I will harp on every misstep that I can, but must in all fairness, and to not sound like the left for the past eight years, give the Obama his due.

It may not fit into your idea of a good thing if you reside in the town known as Mental Illnessville of the liberal left.

In that light, I give you this story:

Obama Stiffs the Left

by William Rusher

The American left had every reason to think that, in Barack Obama, it had finally succeeded in putting one of its devout disciples in the Oval Office. In the run-up to the presidential election, Obama made no secret of his disapproval of the Iraq war, or of his intention to pull American troops out of that venture. During the campaign, he at first pledged that he would end our involvement in 2009. Then he backed off a bit and has recently been talking about 16 months as an appropriate deadline.

More recently still, even that date has begun to wobble. Obama chagrined his supporters and delighted his critics by announcing that our ground commander in Iraq, Gen. Ray Odierno, will stay on in that position. Odierno is opposed to withdraw in 16 months. Furthermore, America’s security pact with Iraq envisions our departure in about three years, and Obama recently told the press that the pact “points us in the right direction.”
