This comes from Rep. Allen West:

During the question and answer portion of President Obama’s NATO summit press conference today he made an interesting statement. He alluded to the fact that the Presidential election will be about who will ensure success for Americans from top to bottom, that everyone has a fair shot. It is clear that Obama is redefining the words of Thomas Jefferson who articulated that our unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness come from our Creator, not man, nor government. Benjamin Franklin stated that it is the pursuit of happiness and it is incumbent upon the American individual to make that chase and catch it. America is about individual sovereignty to pursue their happiness. It is not about government driven collective subjugation in an attempt to guarantee happiness. Sorry President Obama, we will not allow you to redefine America, nor the American Dream!

This is from Thomas Sowell. I really like this guy. He’s all over it when it comes to the economy and other issues of the day. Here’s a quote from his Random Thoughts post over at Townhall.

He has more at this post, go enjoy a smart man’s comments…

What do you call it when someone steals someone else’s money secretly? Theft. What do you call it when someone takes someone else’s money openly by force? Robbery. What do you call it when a politician takes someone else’s money in taxes and gives it to someone who is more likely to vote for him? Social Justice.

Excellent quote. This puts things into perspective in a rather simplistic way that clarifies it for the rest of us rubes.

“If the US Government was a family—they would be making $58,000 a year, spending $75,000 a year, & are $327,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year. These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a level that we can understand.” —Dave Ramsey

Stole this from Hot Air:

GQ: Your new movie is called Friends with Benefits. Ever been in one of those relationships?

Mila Kunis: Oy. I haven’t, but I can give you my stance on it: It’s like communism—good in theory, in execution it fails.

Friends of mine have done it, and it never ends well. Why do people put themselves through that torture?

I love this quote.

It hits the nail on the head and drives it through a 2×4 in one whack!

“I’ve never heard of a Soldier getting scared in those moments, only angry: A hot, ancient rage over the fact that someone they’d never met was actually trying to kill them and their friends. Patriotism on its own couldn’t take a hilltop from a troop of Boy Scouts, but that rage will win battles, change wars.”

-Sebastian Junger, Embedded with the 173rd ABCT, Korengal Valley, Afghanistan–Return to the Valley of Death, Vanity Fair, October
2008.

This hits the nail square on the head.

A word on the matter of competence: Obama is slowly being stripped of any reputation for ability he may have accrued during his political career. The Deepwater Horizon blowout, the Korea crisis, Iran, Sestak…Commandant Zero is being revealed as the most inept president on record. This is in no way hyperbole; it is a sober evaluation of the record as it exists. Fillmore, Buchanan, and even Carter are simply not in the running here. As a schlemiel, Obama stands in a class by himself, a man who not only can’t solve problems, but can’t recognize them when they appear.

Comes from American Thinker.

This has got to be the quote of the week. If not, it’s in the top three.

One day this week, there was measurable snow on the ground in 50 states. (No report yet from the other seven of the “57 states” President Obama once said he was campaigning to be the president of.) Even Hawaii reported snow on some of its mountain peaks, and several towns in northwestern Florida were lightly dusted, like the powdered sugar on a cop’s doughnut.

PRUDEN: The red-hot scam unravels
By Wesley Pruden

You can fool some of the people some of the time, as Abraham Lincoln observed, and you even can fool all the people some of the time. But you can’t fool all the people all the time. Al Gore and his friends got so excited about points one and especially point two that they forgot point three.

Not everybody is on to the global-warming scam, not yet, but all the people — or enough of them — are getting there. “Global warming,” or even “climate change” as Al’s marketing men now insist that it be called, is becoming the stuff of jests and jokes. Sen. James M. Inhofe of Oklahoma, a Republican, built an igloo of that hot stuff that buried Washington last week on the Capitol lawn and dubbed it “Al Gore’s new home.”

Quote of the day:

The payoff in budget savings would be small relative to the deficit: The estimated $250 billion in savings over 10 years would be less than 3 percent of the roughly $9 trillion in additional deficits the government is expected to accumulate over that time.

Here’s an absolute gem for the quote of the day:

“The only thing growing faster than the federal deficit and debt is Chris Matthews’ man crush on Obama.” – Tim Pawlenty

Tim Pawlenty foresees GOP surge if health plan is rejected

CHICAGO – Minnesota GOP Gov. Tim Pawlenty took an aggressive line against President Barack Obama’s proposed health care overhaul Friday and insisted that a rejection of the Democratic plan could usher in a Republican resurgence.

“It appears that President Obama is making great progress on climate change, he is changing the political climate in the country back to Republican,” Pawlenty said during a speech to the second annual GOPAC conference in Chicago.

I had a few posts today and will end with this.

Funny quote of the day:

“How do you personally feel about the President?”

Happy, plus I’m really good-looking

Unhappy, and I’ve gone all pear-shaped and I smell like funky cheese

Angry, crazed, and racist, and also my dick is the size of watch-battery and/or I’ve got chronic swamp-ass
