Quote Of The Day (With Video)

From 2421Rich, who commented HERE to my crosspost of "YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK":

Obama has done what many thought was impossible. He has brought much more than the usual share of baseness and depravity to the machinations of our Government. The corruption is many sided and far reaching but it all starts with him. The quality of the man is seen first in the little things.

It is conspicuous in his personal rapacious attitude toward the perks of the presidency. When he is not perverting and misusing those perks, he and the First Lady are grabbing all they can get regardless of what people in the rest of country are suffering.

His moral hollowness has spread with his appointments to all the government agencies.

We have a State Department that insults and attacks the victim (Israel) while upholding the enemies of the USA.

We have an unjust Justice Department that thinks it is charge of Affirmative Action and attacking political targets.

We have crony-ism, graft and corruption throughout the Federal System as Obama uses the government to reward his friends and punish his enemies.

The stench Obama has brought to Washington is spreading through out the country and rising to the heavens.

Come 2012, Washington will need many long hot showers with several cleansing enemas!


Particularly appropriate after Obama's speech to Congress last night. As Les Carpenter III, the blog master at the previous link, stated:
I guess if the President inculcates {you should pass it right away}he really thinks people will believe his words. Words that are based on flim-flam accounting and pie in the sky hope.

The POTUS is likely betting his speech will energize his progressive base and soothe concerns of moderates. Thus insuring his reelection.

Bonus quote of the day about Obama's speech last night, by Epaminondas of Infidel Bloggers Alliance:

Pass this right away so we can find out what’s in it because THIS is another of my emergencies. No time for questions.

(OR WHAT I CANNOT SEEM TO HELP ANYWAY WILL HAPPEN, BUT THEN I CAN BLAME IT ON YOU)


Once again, pass the bill without finding out what's in it:

  1. 2421Rich knows how to lay it down!

    btw, Les Carpenter and Bastiatarian are two different people.

    Bastiatarian used to have his own blog but didn't have enough time to keep it going, unfortunately. He's an intelligent man who improves the IQ of my blog by just showing up.

  2. Hi AOW.
    Half of the plan($220 billion) should be financed with money coming from savings by the 'Super committee' unless i'm wrong i don't think that was the reason why the committee was formed?

  3. Silverfiddle,
    Thanks for the correction about Les Carpenter III and Bastiatarian.

    The latter linked Carpenter's web site in his profile, so I thought they were the same person.

    I've corrected the post.

  4. Will,
    The Super Committee's commitment and capabilities have yet to be seen.

    Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised to see further downgrading of America's credit rating as a result of Obama's spend, spend, spend speech last night.

  5. I hope that the phrase "you should pass this bill right away" will fade soon from my memory bank. In other words, don't have it go through the Committee process where we can find out the cost. Just have another repeat of Obamacare.

  6. 2421Rich is FOS. And Obama's address to Congress was brilliant. He totally pwned the GOP and probably reassured his re-election in one speech.

    And the GOP couldn't even clap when he mentioned the GI Bill. Shameful.

  7. An excellent piece. I have a slightly different interpretation of this statement though:

    "The corruption is many sided and far reaching but it all starts with him."

    I think it is larger than even Obama. There is a machine composed of of Democratic Party "private" organizations , many Soros funded fronts, that made it possible for this unknown junior senator with no practical life experience and gaping holes in his life to become president. He is just the visible tip of the iceberg in my view.

    I don't mean to sound conspiratorial, I think the evidence is just there. So we must not only defeat Obama, we must defeat the machine that props him up.

  10. OUCH!

    From USA Today, about Obama's speech yesterday:

    Americans who watched President Obama's call for a new jobs bill Thursday night might have wondered whether they were stuck in a time warp. A proposal to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to put people to work: Is this 2009 all over again?

    And from Dana Milbank in today's WaPo:

    President Obama gave one of the most impassioned speeches of his presidency when he addressed a joint session of Congress Thursday night. Too bad so many in the audience thought it was a big, fat joke.

    [...]

    Obama rose to the occasion with a bold jobs proposal that delighted liberals but also had elements conservatives grudgingly endorsed. Yet long before the speech, both sides had concluded it didn’t much matter: Obama has become too weak to enact anything big enough to do much good.

    “I thought it was a great speech,” said Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) But the odds of Obama getting his plan through Congress “are probably as good as the Nationals winning the league this year.”

    Presidential addresses to Congress are often dramatic moments. This one felt like a sideshow. Usually, the press gallery is standing room only; this time only 26 of 90 seats were claimed by the deadline. Usually, some members arrive in the chamber hours early to score a center-aisle seat; 90 minutes before Thursday’s speech, only one Democrat was so situated.

    [...]

    Even a mention of Abraham Lincoln, “a Republican president who mobilized government to build the transcontinental railroad,” brought no applause from the GOP side. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) yawned. One unidentified Republican backbencher chose this moment to hold up a sign demanding “Drilling for Jobs.”

    So now even Lincoln doesn’t merit Republican applause when Obama invokes his name?...


    The above sources are not conservative ones.

    Hardly a brilliant speech.

  12. Obama last night: "We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. Founder of the Republican Party."

    Contrary to what Obama said last night, Abraham Lincoln did not found the Republican Party:

    Lincoln wasn’t even the GOP’s first Presidential nominee; the first Republican nominee was John C. Fremont in 1856. As the Independence Hall Association recalls, the actual founders of the Republican Party are “Northern leaders such as Horace Greeley, Salmon Chase and Charles Sumner.” Lincoln joined early, as did other anti-slavery Whigs whose party was unraveling at the time, and Lincoln came in second for the 1856 vice-presidential nomination, but he was not a founder of the party. By the time he became a factor in the GOP, the party had already taken a majority in the House of Representatives (1855); it also carried 11 states and 114 electoral votes in the 1856 election that sent Democrat James Buchanan to the White House.

    Next time Obama wants to lecture Republicans on their own history, maybe he should take the time to learn it first.

    Update: Even as late as 1855, Lincoln resisted the temptation to abandon the Whigs...

    Such a brilliant speech, huh? [sarcasm]

  13. Addendum: No wonder John Boehner had such a peculiar look on his face at that point in Obama's speech.

  14. WASHINGTON - The ...jobs bill includes a tax break for companies that hire unemployed workers, money for highway construction, relief for private pensions ...

    Does it sound famiiar? It should if you have been paying attention. It was said In Feb. 2010 When Obama submitted another jobs bill that would cure the county's ills.

    Guess what. It failed! Same plan, just a little change in wording and a bigger price tag, but oh of course it's all paid for.
    Yea, and if you believe that you'd believe Wimpy when he said "for a hamburger today, I will gladly repay you tomorrow."
    That is how Obama intends to pay for this latest fiasco.

    Yep.

    And some material from February 2009 as well.

    Today, Obama hit the road to push his "new" plan in Richmond, Virginia. He's in full campaign-mode now.

    I may have to go live under a rock to preserve my sanity.

  18. "We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. Founder of the Republican Party."

    Of course Lincoln was not the founder of the Republican Party. If Perry, Palin or Bachmann had made that statement, the press would have been all over it like a duck on a June bug.

  19. Obummer's focus group - "It didn't work the first time with the words 'Stimulus Package', so let's use the words 'Jobs Bill' and use it as a re-election campaign mantra! And let's leave the details to someone else so 'the One' will have plausible deniability. And if it doesn't happen, blame Bush (or the Republicans)!"

    And by the way - facts have never gotten in the way of an Obummer speech...

    Umm, don't look now but his RCP ticked down a little today. Yeah, he's golden now.

    Hell, even the AP and others in the fringe media are pointing out that his numbers didn't add up.

    Keep typing, one of these days you'll get it right.

    I think he wants it passed quickly so no one will look too closely at the details. Problem is, the Dims don't control Congress like the last time we passed a bill "so we could see what was in it".

    Exactly.

  25. Notice what part of this post gets the attention of the Duck and he wonders why people deduce he is anti semitic.

    AOW

    We can argue about bills but in truth we need to look at ourselves.
    Do we think Obama can lead us out of this like Reagan did in the 80's. I do not see him as a leader or visionary.

    The country needs a strong leader with vision and Obama is just lacking in both. Companies are hoarding cash rather than investing and they lack confidence
    in Obama.

  26. Speaking of revisionist history happening before our very eyes:

    PBS alters transcript to hide Obama gaffe

    Barack Obama has gone to Congress asking for more money to spend. The President, in a rambling and tedious exercise mixing blame with demands, made quite a few dubious statements in laying out the case for Congress to vote for the plan which as yet does not exist. Much like Obamacare, Congress must ultimately vote for the bill to know what is in it.

    At one point Mr. Obama made a major gaffe; he identified Abraham Lincoln as the founder of the Republican Party.

    Lincoln did not join the Republicans until 1856, over two years after the party was founded. The first Republican convention was held in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1854.

    Such a gaffe would have brought huge amounts of ridicule and derision on George W. Bush, but in the case of Obama the media yawned.

    Actually, they did more than yawn; government-funded PBS has altered the transcript of the President's speech, removing the offending comment.

    The New York Times transcript has the following quote:

    "We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. Founder of the Republican Party. But in the middle of a civil war, he was also a leader who looked to the future -- a Republican President who mobilized government to build the Transcontinental Railroad -- (applause) -- launch the National Academy of Sciences, set up the first land grant colleges. (Applause.) And leaders of both parties have followed the example he set."

    But how does it appear in the PBS transcript?

    "We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. But in the middle of a Civil War, he was also a leader who looked to the future - a Republican president who mobilized government to build the transcontinental railroad; launch the National Academy of Sciences; and set up the first land grant colleges. And leaders of both parties have followed the example he set."

    So PBS has purposely altered a transcript containing a major gaffe by the President.

  29. This was the speech of a man clearly out of his depth. Most realized this was a campaign speech and not a serious policy statement. Obama's chances rest solely on the efforts of Union thugs, so called educators whose best efforts have yielded the dumbest electorate since the middle ages, and the hordes of media lap dogs...
