This is how Freedom dies…

23 Mar

…to the sound of a potty mouth Vice President.

Biden’s not entirely wrong in his word choice. What this really is, is “A Big F-ing Mistake.”

Even a year later, it's still the scariest thing out there!

Our Daily Biden: Reunion Tour

Is the President having Biden’s remorse?

Biden’s Oath Joke Doesn’t Amuse Obama
MSNBC

Biden: Am I doing this again? Oh! For the senior staff. My memory’s not as good as Justice Roberts’ … Chief Justice Roberts.

Obama, not looking amused, gave Biden a tap on his back with his right hand in an attempt to get his VP back on track.

As one poster over at the Newsbusters Weekend Caption Contest put it: President Obama gives conservatives one big reason to pray for his health and well-being.

Change You Can Re-Live In

17 Nov

So over and over since November 4 we’ve been reminded that Barack Obama was the first Democrat to win the popular vote since Jimmy Carter.  You know, having lived through the Carter Administration, I’m not so sure the Democrats really want to make that connection.

But what was it we heard the most from Senator Obama and his legions of followers?  One word:  Change.

Let’s look at some of Obama’s agents of Change:

Joe Biden, a 30 year Senate veteran as Vice President. Rahm Emanuel as Chief of Staff. Hillary Clinton, career long political wife, former scorned First Lady and New York’s Junior Senator as Secretary of State (Drudge is saying she’ll accept).

It’s still early and the President-elect is still shaping his administration.  The meeting with Senator McCain was a positive step.

But with the way the cast of characters is taking shape, this is starting to look at like a sequel, not a major blockbuster.

Time will tell.

Opinion: Now We Know What Change Means
Digital Journal

In any case, 31 of the 47 appointees named so far have ties to the Clintons. The usual suspects include John Podesta, John White, Wendy Sherman, Sandy Berger, Robert Rubin, William Perry and Madeleine Albright. This cast of characters is right out of the Clinton playbook…And Rahm Emanuel as chief of staff? It’s like old home week.

Confirmation: Obama Voters Had No Idea What “Change” Meant
The Patriot Room

Given that Obama won the popular vote by 53-46, can we assume that the 46% in the survey that think Obama will change too much are McCain supporters? If so, then the rest are all Obama supporters. Which means that 32% of his supporters think he’s too conventional and a 22%, representing fully 40% of his supporters, have no idea whether he will change too much or too little – i.e. clueless about his proposals.

The Clinton band is back together

Here’s how you can tell the campaign is over and the transition has begun: Barack Obama’s aides now wear suits and ties, their desks are in the Federal Building on 6th Street in Washington — and Clintonites are everywhere.

Is it all over but the rioting?

3 Nov

A few weeks ago, we asked the question: Will we be safer with an Obama Presidency?

On the eve of the election, with the race too close to call, Bearing Drift describes the “Carbone Riot Scale” in which various outcomes and resulting violence are outlined.

It. Could. Happen.

Police prepare for unrest
The Hill

“We’ve seen it on the Internet and we’ve heard that there could be civil unrest depending on the outcome of [the election,]” said Lt. Mark Briede of the Cincinnati Police Department. “We are prepared to respond in the case of some sort of unrest or some sort of incident.”

Are Riots Being Planned for November 5?
New American

Are ultra-radical elements planning nationwide riots in the event that Barack Obama loses the election? It certainly appears that the fires have been stoked and the dials pre-set for rage and violence if the “Messiah” does not win in this down-to-the-wire race in which most polls and media predictions have Obama beating McCain.

Liberals Warnings About Obama Loss May Prove Self-Fulfilling
Dennis Prager, Townhall

If Obama loses, it will not be deemed plausible that Americans have again rejected a liberal candidate, indeed the one with the most liberal voting record in the U.S. Senate. Liberals will explain an Obama defeat as another nefarious Republican victory. Combining contempt for many rural and middle-class white Americans with a longstanding belief in the inevitability of a Democratic victory in 2008 (after all, everyone they talk to despises the Republicans and believes Republicans have led the country to ruin), there will be only one reason Obama did not win — white racism.

Happy Halloween!

Obama's not even President yet and already your middle class income is shrinking

28 Oct

First they came  for the people making $250,000, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t making $250,000…

For weeks (months?), Barack Obama has been saying that if you make less than $250,000, your taxes won’t go up.

Then in the last debate he said if you make less than $200,000 your taxes won’t go up.

Then yesterday, Joe Biden said that if you make less than $150,000 your taxes won’t go up.

Pretty soon they’ll be down to that $42,000 level on which they’ve already voted to raise taxes.

Obama’s Definition of Rich Keeps Going Down
Neil Cavuto

We can’t pay for all our programs taxing just the very rich, so we’ve moved to the rich, then the close-to-rich, then maybe not-so-rich at all.,,Now isn’t that rich?

Obama’s tax-cut threshold shrinking?
Confusion abounds as voters hear $250,000, $200,000, now $150,000
World Net Daily

According to the 2006 IRS statistics published by the National Taxpayers Union, “95 percent of working Americans” only includes those making less than $153,542 per year.

Obama, Biden Shift ‘Tax Break’ Threshold
NewsMax

Barack Obama’s “spread the wealth” tax plan took another hit today when a new campaign ad debuted over the weekend shifting the presidential candidate’s definition of rich from those making more than $250,000 to those making $200,000.

And let’s be clear about your taxes “not going up.”

The Bush tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003 are scheduled to expire.  Barack Obama wants them to expire. John McCain while initially opposing the tax cuts, now wants to make them permanent.

The tax code changes enacted in 2001 and 2003 are scheduled to expire at the end of 2010. If they do, statutory marginal tax rates will rise across the board, ranging from a 13 percent increase for the highest-income households to a 50 percent increase in tax rates faced by lower-income households. The marriage penalty will be reimposed, and the child credit cut by $500 per child. The long-term capital gains tax rate will rise to 20 percent from 15 percent, and the top tax rate on dividends will nearly triple, rising to 39.6 percent from 15 percent. [source]

Roughly translated, if the Bush tax cuts expire, your taxes WILL go up.

Barack says he won’t raise your taxes.  Barack says he wants the Bush tax cuts to expire.

You do the math.

Heritage Foundation to Obama Campaign: Kindly stop lying about our support of your tax plan.
Red State

…the very short version is that the Obama campaign is deliberately using misquoted material – material that they have already tried to use, and have already been called on – to misrepresent the opinion of the Heritage Foundation towards Barack Obama’s tax policies.

Freudian Slip of the Day, Part Deux

Apparently the strain of gaffe virus that Joe Biden has is contagious.

Seriously, you have to feel sorry for the guy.  This clip will be played for years.
