Wow. The rant. The rant… I can’t blame him. All I can think of is: “The horror. The horror.”

I want Obama’s liberal, socialist, communistic, neo-Marxist agenda to fail too!

I think Obama’s a lying sack of shit, mostly. But I suppose I must also defer to the FACT that liberalism is a mental disorder.

I want Obama to Fail, too.

It’s been a while since I listened to the Esteemed Mr. Limbaugh regularly, and with the “I hope he fails” kerfluffle, I have taken him up again.  I agree with Rush.

I hope Barack Obama fails.

I hope he fails because despite the direction he claims to want to take this country, despite the golden paradise he claims to want for us all, there are only two possibilities given the ruinous policies he is enacting, an the path he has set us on with these proven losers:]

1) He’s mad as a hatter.

2) He’s a lying sack of shit.

And the tests keep coming. We’re only in month two! Besides the economy, Teh One continues to be tested on all fronts. So far, he’s a weak imbecile with an over-reaching socialist agenda.

China says U.S. naval ship broke the law

BEIJING (Reuters) – China said on Tuesday that a U.S. Navy ship involved in a confrontation with its fleet off the southern island of Hainan had violated international and Chinese laws.

Washington had urged China to observe international maritime rules after the Pentagon said five Chinese ships, including a naval vessel, harassed the USNS Impeccable in international waters on Sunday.

US protests ‘harassment’ by Chinese vessels

WASHINGTON (AP) – Chinese ships surrounded and harassed a Navy mapping ship in international waters off China, at one point coming within 25 feet of the American boat and strewing debris in its path, the Defense Department said Monday. The Obama administration said it would continue naval operations in the South China Sea, most of which China considers its territory, and protested to China about what it called reckless behavior that endangered lives.

Tension rises as N Korea cuts off hotline

North Korea on Monday cut its military hotline to Seoul and put its million-man army at battle stations, ratcheting up tensions as South Korean and US troops began war games that Pyongyang warned could spark open conflict.

UN forces last week tried to counter North Korean claims that the exercises were a smokescreen for an invasion by promising to keep the hotline open, giving Pyongyang advance warning of anything that could cause a misunderstanding.

NKorea puts troops on alert, warns of war danger

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – North Korea put its troops on alert and cut the last hot line to Seoul on Monday as the American and South Korean militaries began joint maneuvers. The communist regime warned that even the slightest provocation could trigger war.

The North stressed that provocation would include any attempt to interfere with its impending launch of a satellite into orbit. U.S. and Japanese officials fear the launch could be a cover for a test of a long-range attack missile and have suggested they might move to intercept the rocket.

“Shooting our satellite for peaceful purposes will precisely mean a war,” North Korea’s military threatened in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency. Any interception attempt will draw “a just, retaliatory strike,” it said.

Iran says U.S. still “warmongering”

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran’s top military commander said the new U.S. administration was just as “warmongering” as its predecessor, but that the United States could not afford to attack Iran, an Iranian news agency reported on Tuesday.

Major-General Hassan Firouzabadi’s comments came despite an offer by President Barack Obama to engage in direct talks with Tehran if it “unclenches its fist,” and may disappoint Washington.

US says ‘difficult’ to halt Iran nuclear drive

US intelligence chief Dennis Blair warned Tuesday it will be “difficult” to convince Iran to give up its suspected quest for nuclear weapons through diplomatic means.

Tehran might bow to a blend of “credible” incentives and “threats of intensified international scrutiny and pressures” but “it is difficult to specify what such a combination might be,” Blair told lawmakers.

His comments, in testimony to the Senate Armed Services Committee, came as US President Barack Obama wrestled with how to convince the Islamic republic from halting what the West views as a secret nuclear weapons drive.

Iran denies the allegations, saying it needs atomic power to generate electricity for civilian use.

“Although we do not know whether Iran currently intends to develop nuclear weapons, we assess Tehran at a minimum is keeping open the option to develop them,” said Blair.

Biden says West “not winning” in Afghanistan

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden appealed to NATO allies on Tuesday to help the United States tackle worsening security in Afghanistan, saying the alliance was struggling to deal with a threat to the West as a whole. Skip related content

“The deteriorating situation in the region poses a security threat not just to the United States but to every single nation round this table,” Biden told representatives of the 26-country military pact during a visit to Brussels.

“We are not now winning the war, but the war is far from lost,” he told a news conference after three hours of talks.

I wouldn’t trust the Brady bunch as far as I could throw them. They keep lying about guns and gun control because they want control over you. That’s the bottom line in all of this. It doesn’t have shit to do with protecting anyone other than criminals and padding the Brady bunch’s pocket books. Gun control lies:

Gun control, pro-choice women, and the Brady Campaign

Gun control laws threaten to leave millions of women importuning violent predators for their lives, and sometimes those predators are their husbands.

Awakening to the sound of a door being kicked in, 87-year-old Altha Rider arose and met the intruder at the carport door with her .38 pistol in hand, at which point he became “scared” and ran off. When police arrested him the next day, he had “in his possession several items taken from other homes in the area.” The intruder was already on parole for a previous burglary conviction.

There are three important points here:

1.     Police didn’t arrive until attacker left.

2.     How did an 87-year-old woman scare an experienced, violent felon? She had a gun.

3.     Law-abiding gun owners, being peaceable citizens, rarely fire a gun in self-defense.

Pamela Cowan had a protection order against her husband, but that didn’t stop him from targeting her for “a night of abuse…and a gunshot to the chest.” He put his gun down and “poured gasoline throughout the house and on his wife.” She grabbed the gun and shot him once in the head, killing him before he could finish his grisly murder.

More lies from Obama. There is no consensus for embryonic stem cell research. It has already been proven that adult stem cells are much better and have less risk associated with them. Plus, adult stem cells are cheaper to obtain and use. Oh, and did Obama mention the fact that embryonic stem cells cause cancer at a huge rate compared to adult stem cells, or even those from the placenta? Did he also mention that using embryonic stem cells kills babies? Whoops.

The Orwellian Presidential Bully Pulpit

by David Limbaugh

Does the following statement from Melody C. Barnes, director of President Barack Obama’s Domestic Policy Council, strike you as a) patronizing or b) Orwellian? “The president believes that it’s particularly important to sign this (presidential memorandum authorizing federal funding for human embryonic stem cell research) so that we can put science and technology back at the heart of pursuing a broad range of national goals.”

Your answer should be both a and b, especially when considered in conjunction with another presidential memorandum “aimed at insulating scientific decisions across the federal government from political influence.”

The president brazenly sermonizes against scientifically challenged conservatives while triggering federal funding of research that is scientifically controversial and preparing to impose cap and trade penalties on corporate America in deference to global warming junk science.

Here’s a nice round up of Barry’s top 10 screw ups. Yep, more screw ups in two months than most presidents do in four years. Way to go BO!

The 10 Biggest Amateur Mistakes By the Obama Administration So Far

by John Hawkins

During the 2008 presidential campaign, people speculated whether someone like Barack Obama, who has never really run anything or had any major achievements other than winning political office, could handle a three AM crisis call. Well, as it turns out, Obama has been such a bumbling incompetent that he probably couldn’t handle a trip through a Wendy’s drive-in window without a teleprompter telling him what to order and whether he wants a Coke or a Mountain Dew. Even though Obama has been in office less than two months, he has already made more boneheaded errors than most Presidents do in an entire term.

10) After doing the “We’ve got to have this stimulus package passed right this second or the economy is going to explode” routine so convincingly that not one single soul in Congress actually had time to read the entire bill before it was signed, Barack Obama then promptly went on a three day vacation to celebrate before he signed it. If the bill was so important that no one could even have time to read it before it was passed, then why wasn’t it important enough for Obama to skip dinner at Table Fifty-Two in Chicago to immediately make it a law?

It sure is tough being President

by Lorie Byrd

Being the leader of the free world is without doubt a difficult job, but no one has made it look more so than the current administration.

After less than two months in office, President Obama, the “Yes, we can” man is already “overwhelmed.”

At least that was the reason given for the shabby treatment the Obama administration gave British Prime Minister Gordon Brown when he visited last week. Not only did the President fail to provide a high profile press event for our closest ally, but he presented him with inexpensive gifts showing little thought or consideration.

Back on the economy a bit here. The moral of the story? Keep government the hell out of it and all will be well. Government interference is what got us into this mess in the first place. Government interference isn’t going to fix the problem.

Subsidizing Bad Decisions

by Thomas Sowell

Now that the federal government has decided to bail out homeowners in trouble, with mortgage loans up to $729,000, that raises some questions that ought to be asked, but are seldom being asked.

Since the average American never took out a mortgage loan as big as seven hundred grand– for the very good reason that he could not afford it– why should he be forced as a taxpayer to subsidize someone else who apparently couldn’t afford it either, but who got in over his head anyway?

Why should taxpayers who live in apartments, perhaps because they did not feel that they could afford to buy a house, be forced to subsidize other people who could not afford to buy a house, but who went ahead and bought one anyway?

The Risible Claim of “Responsibility”

by Mona Charen

Happening to scroll through old news the other day, I came across this declaration from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi: “While President Bush continues to trumpet his so-called ‘economic achievements,’ the Bush Administration confirmed today that the budget deficit for 2006 will be one of the largest in our nation’s history. President Bush’s failed economic policies have resulted in budgets that are drastically out of balance and skyrocketing debt. Budget deficits translate into higher interest rates, which means that mortgages cost more, credit-card debt grows, and student loans cost more. … Democrats know how to restore fiscal discipline with tough policies of pay-as-you-go budgeting, no new deficit spending…”

Cough cough. Daniel Casse at the Commentary Magazine blog offers additional golden oldies. He remembers the New York Times’ Paul Krugman writing in 2003, “As a drunk is to alcohol, the Bush administration is to budget deficits,” as well as Thomas Friedman lamenting just a few months ago that “Under George W. Bush, America has foisted onto future generations a huge financial burden to finance our current tax cuts, wars and now bailouts.”

Suckers.

Back then we thought it was cool

By Randy Fardal

Recent recantations by avid Obama supporters, including financial celebrity Jim Cramer, are reminiscent of the late actor, Yul Brynner.  Brynner was an avid smoker who, on learning that he was dying of lung cancer, recorded the following message to be played after his death:

Now that I’m gone, I tell you: Don’t smoke, whatever you do, just don’t smoke.  If I could take back that smoking we wouldn’t be talking about any cancer.  I’m convinced of that.

Listening to Cramer essentially link Obama to America’s economic cancer, you might notice some parallels between supporting Obama and smoking cigarettes.

To young people, supporting Obama and smoking cigarettes both look cool and both make them feel good.  And despite dire warnings from responsible adults, lots of their friends also do both and, so far, nothing bad has happened to them.
