From the people who brought you styrofoam columns…

Yes, they were doctors. But yes, they were also Obama supporters.

And yes, they were in costume.

White House’s botched ‘op’
New York Post

In a heavy-handed attempt at reviving support for health-care reform, the White House orchestrated a massive photo op to buttress its claim that front-line physicians support Obama.

Media Outlets Neglect to Mention that Doctor Photo-Op Was Staged
NewsBusters

But none of these media outlets mentioned that the White House had to hand out lab coats to a number of the doctors in attendance who showed up in business attire. Apparently trying to drive home the image of medical professionals applauding the President, the White House would not start the press conference until all of the doctors were dressed in the “spiffy” outfits, in the President’s words.

Remember, this photo-op at the White House today was invitation only…
More symbolism over substance, this is how bad it is for Health Care, a bunch of Doctors in white coats in the Rose Garden who are Obama supporters…

Michelle Malkin: The Three R's in the Age of Obama

25 Sep

The Three R’s in the Age of Obama; Rappin’, Revolution and Radicalism
Michelle Malkin in TownHall

 
When the White House announced plans for the president’s nationwide address to schoolchildren two weeks ago, worried parents were dismissed as “kooks.” We pointed to the subtext of “social justice” activism rampant in American classrooms. It’s time for a big fat Told You So.

Acknowledging the historic nature of Obama’s presidency (“the first black American”) is one thing. Deifying him with creepy spiritual references (“red, yellow, black and white, all are equal in his sight” is cribbed from the famous hymn “Jesus Loves the Little Children”; cheering “you are No. 1”) is quite another.

And you thought we were overreacting about "The Speech"

24 Sep

I’ve already said, Obama’s speech to the school kids wasn’t bad. My son will be seeing it in Chesterfield schools. We signed the form saying it was okay. But, once again, it was the Department of Education lesson plan that came along with it.

But many of you tried to write it off as right-wing hysteria. View this and make that comment again.

This is disturbing. Very disturbing.

We can only hope that the President is as disturbed by this as we are.

Obama Goes to School

2 Sep

And we wonder what he plans to say.

Obama’s classroom campaign: No junior lobbyist left behind
Michelle Malkin

“ABC” stands for All Barack’s Children. On September 8, young students across the country will be watching television. Yes, they’ll be parked in front of the boob tube and computer screens watching President Obama’s address on education.

On some levels I’m thinking “This could be kinda cool” sort of a civics lesson. If that’s what it was.

But this is Barack Obama we’re talking about. This is propaganda plain and simple. He wants Dick and Jane to come home and convince Mums and Dads to support his agenda.

It’s a risky move with his numbers in the polls tanking. But it doesn’t end there, On Wednesday, the President will address a joint session of Congress to talk about health care.

More about that later. One propaganda speech at a time…

Abusing School Kids With Pro-Obama Propaganda
Michael Medved, TownHall

For those who consider this an appropriate use of classroom time at the very beginning of the school year, ask yourself the question: how would you respond had President Bush ordered teachers to get students to write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president?

Right blasts Obama speech to students
Politico

“The idea that school children across our nation will be forced to watch the President justify his plans for government-run health care, banks, and automobile companies, increasing taxes on those who create jobs, and racking up more debt than any other President, is not only infuriating, but goes against beliefs of the majority of Americans, while bypassing American parents through an invasive abuse of power,” [Florida Republican Party] Chairman Jim Greer said in a press release.

You can’t say we didn’t tell you this was coming. Flashback to the campaign:

Can this be far behind for our children?

And you know, it’s been 8 months. Anybody check up on how these people are doing?

I won’t keep my son out of school on the first day. Chesterfield is apparently meeting tomorrow to determine how to address this. If my son’s class watches this, we’ll talk about it.

Propaganda. It’s a good vocabulary word.

About that TV special…

Let us once again ascend to the Temple Barackus

29 Oct

But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed … when the roar of the crowd fades away … when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot — what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger … take more of your money … give you more orders from Washington … and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world.

McCain Mocks Obama ‘Infomercial’ for Delaying World Series Game
The Washington Post

HERSHEY, Pa. — Sen. John McCain made a direct appeal to baseball lovers Tuesday morning while mocking his rival’s decision to buy 30 minutes of television time Wednesday night for an address to the nation…”No one will delay the World Series with an infomercial when I’m president,” he said to the approval of a crowd of thousands at a stadium here.

ABC: Not Another Barack Channel
Los Angeles Times

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama’s half-hour campaign commercial is scheduled to run Wednesday night on all of the major television networks – except ABC.

Commentary: Obama breaks promise on campaign finance
Campbell Brown, CNN

One year ago, he made a promise. He pledged to accept public financing and to work with the Republican nominee to ensure that they both operated within those limits.  Then it became clear to Sen. Obama and his campaign that he was going to be able to raise on his own far more cash than he would get with public financing. So Obama went back on his word.

We won’t be watching the Barack Show tonight.  Of course, if he’d pattern it after the Saturday Night Live version, we might just rethink that.

Hawaii B.O.: What's the real truth about Obama's birth certificate?

24 Oct

Honestly, I’ve not talked about this before because I really think that if there was something to it, Hillary would have found it.  Still, the fact remains that Barack Obama hasn’t exactly been forthcoming about the whole story.  Maybe he thought if he ignored it, it would go away.

But why not just produce the birth certificate and get it over with?  That’s what John McCain did when he was questioned about his birth in Panama (to United States citizens serving in the military).

I mean, doesn’t Obama have a copy of his birth certificate?  Didn’t he need it to apply for his social security card, or his passport?  Or for his college admission?  Heck, earlier this year I had to provide my birth certificate just to get my driver’s license renewed.

Even if he didn’t have a copy, he could easily get one from the State of Hawaii.  He was there this summer for over a week.  He knew the issue was out there.

Why not end the speculation?  Why not make Philip J. Berg look like a fool?

Instead Berg announced today that Obama & DNC Admit All Allegations of Federal Court Lawsuit – Obama’s “Not” Qualified to be President

(Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania – 10/21/08) – Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States, announced today that Obama and tbe DNC “ADMITTED”, by way of failure to timely respond to Requests for Admissions, all of the numerous specific requests in the Federal lawsuit. Obama is “NOT QUALIFIED” to be President and therefore Obama must immediately withdraw his candidacy for President and the DNC shall substitute a qualified candidate. The case is Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.

I’m no lawyer, and I don’t play one on the Internet. So I don’t know if there’s substanct to Berg’s legal claim or not.

But again, why hasn’t Obama just answered the question?

Some are speculating that this is the real reason he went to Hawaii.

Earlier this week, as we all know (unless you’re living in a cave, under a rock where only Joe Biden knows your undisclosed location), Barack Obama announced that he would be traveling to Hawaii to visit his ailing grandmother. [New York Times]

In an interview with CBS Anchor Harry Smith said that he wanted to go see his grandmother because he didn’t want to repeat the mistake he made with not getting home to see his dying mother in time.

We certainly extend our best wishes to Mrs. Dunham.  Forgive me for suggesting he’s untrustworthy (instead of just saying it outright).  And forgive me for sounding callous.  I’ve had ailing relatives.  I’ve been told they’re at death’s door and if I wanted to see them, I needed to get there asap.

I didn’t wait four days to go see them.  Especially not if I’d had the experience of being too late before.

Was it that important for Obama to appear in Richmond yesterday?  After all, if we’re to believe the polls he’s some eight-hunnert and fifty-three bazillion points ahead in the Commonwealth.  Why the timing for the Hawaii trip?

Could it be that Obama needed to get to Hawaii to deal with the lawsuit filed by Andy Martin?

Or are Philip Berg and Andy Martin wingnuts who just want some attention?

But consider these “facts.”

  • Barack Obama’s paternal grandmother said she was in delivery room in Kenya with brother and sister in 1961.
  • Obama’s half-sister Maya names the Hawaii hospital in which he was born.  Barack Obama names a different hospital.
  • Obama spent four years in school in Indonesia, at a time of war when supposedly you could not attend school if you were not a citizen.  A copy of a school record lists Barry Sotero (his stepfather’s last name) as a citizen of Indonesia.
  • Obama and the DNC have tried to have Berg’s lawsuit dismissed for legal technicalities.

Is this all just a bit of wing nuttery?  Have I wasted an evening pulling this post together?

One thing continues to tell me that I have:  Hillary would have found it.  Unless, of course, I wrap myself completely in tin foil and speculate that this is her way of getting him out of her way for 2012.

Most of me thinks there’s just nothing here.  But I can’t get away from the nagging question of why doesn’t Barack Obama just produce the document and be done with it?

Then again, why haven’t we seen his medical records, or his college transcripts?  Or why don’t we know the extent of his relationships with William Ayers, with Jeremiah Wright, with Louis Farrakahn, with Tony Rezko, with ACORN, etc., etc., etc.?

There’s just too much we don’t know.  We expect the main stream media to jump right on this.

Just as soon as they find out where Sarah Palin got that stunning new jacket.

Not sure about Barack Obama?  Something just not settling in right?  Consider the following.  And remember these aren’t my words.

World Citizens Prefer Obama to McCain by Nearly 4-to-1
Gallup

Gallup Polls conducted in 70 countries from May to September 2008 reveal widespread international support for Democratic Sen. Barack Obama over Republican Sen. John McCain in the U.S. presidential election. Among these nations, representing nearly half of the world’s population, 30% of citizens say they would personally rather see Obama elected president of the United States, compared with just 8% who say the same about McCain. At the same time, 62% of world citizens surveyed did not have an opinion.

Okay, I just have to ask.  How many wars have we fought for the right for the world not to tell us how to live our lives?  And on that list of 70 countries, how many of their backsides have we pulled out the fire with our blood and money?

If the United States wants to elect Barack Obama (and for the life of me, I’ll never understand why), it should not be because the world tells us to.

Or these people either for that matter…

Fidel Castro: Obama “without doubt is, from the social and human point, the most advanced candidate” running for the U.S. presidency…”I feel no resentment towards him, for he is not responsible for the crimes perpetrated against Cuba and humanity,” [Reuters and L.A. Times]

Jeremiah Wright: “This ordinary boy [Obama] just might be the first president in the history of the United States to have a black woman sleeping at 1600 Pennsylvania legally,” Wright said, referring to Michelle Obama, in a sermon at the Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church in Houston. [New York Post]

Communist Party USA:  Eye on the Prize

If Obama’s candidacy represented nothing more than the spark for this profound initiative to unite the working class and defeat the pernicious influence of racism, it would be a transformative candidacy that would advance progressive politics for the long term. [H/T Sweetness & Light]

Louis Farrakhan: “This young man is the hope of the entire world that America will change and be made better.  This young man is capturing audiences of black and brown and red and yellow. If you look at Barack Obama’s audiences and look at the effect of his words, those people are being transformed…A black man with a white mother became a savior to us…” [H/T The Belmont Club]

Jim And Sarah Brady, Brady Campaign Endorse Barack Obama And Joe Biden

Washington, D.C. – Sarah and Jim Brady and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence with its network of Million Mom March Chapters endorsed Senator Barack Obama for President and Senator Joseph Biden for Vice President today, and urged Americans to vote for them.

Kofi Annan: When asked if the United States and the world was ready for a black US president, he said: “I think it would be a phenomenal change for the US and for the world. “It would introduce a new dynamics (sic) and a new relationship between the US and the world. Whoever wins this presidency will have to come out prepared to work in partnership with the rest of the world,” he told reporters. [AFP]

Hamas terrorists make 2008 U.S. presidential pick
“We like Mr. Obama, and we hope that he will win the elections,” Ahmed Yousuf, Hamas’ top political adviser in the Gaza Strip, said in an exclusive interview with WND and with the John Batchelor Show on WABC Radio in New York. [World Net Daily]

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: In response to a question from an American student about whether he supports Democratic nominee Barack Obama or Republican John McCain, Ahmadinejad did not explicitly name Obama but said: “The American government 28 years ago decided on its own to cut its ties with Iran . . .We do prefer to have relations, whereas one of the candidates in this election would prefer that.” [Boston Globe]

Kim Jong Il: The Chosun Sinbo, the mouthpiece of North Korea’s Japanese front organization Chongryon and often for the North Korean regime itself, has announced its preference for Obama over McCain, whom it calls “a variant of Bush” and “nothing better than a scarecrow of neoconservatives,” which is a bit odd considering that the Bush Administration’s giveaway diplomacy is better for Kim Jong Il than even Clinton’s awful performance. [H/T Michelle Malkin]

Mu’ammar Al-Qadhafi: There are elections in America now. Along came a black citizen of Kenyan African origins, a Muslim, who had studied in an Islamic school in Indonesia. His name is Obama. All the people in the Arab and Islamic world and in Africa applauded this man. They welcomed him and prayed for him and for his success, and they may have even been involved in legitimate contribution campaigns to enable him to win the American presidency. But we were taken by surprise when our African Kenyan brother, who is an American national, made statements that shocked all his supporters in the Arab world, in Africa, and in the Islamic world. We hope that this is merely an elections “clearance sale,” as they say in Egypt – in other words, merely an elections lie. As you know, this is the farce of elections – a person lies and lies to people, just so that they will vote for him, and afterwards, when they say to him: :”You promised this and that,” he says: “No, this was just elections propaganda.” This is the farce of democracy for you. He says: “This was propaganda, and you thought I was being serious. I was fooling you to get your votes.” [MEMRI]

Jessie Jackson: He promised “fundamental changes” in US foreign policy – saying America must “heal wounds” it has caused to other nations, revive its alliances and apologize for the “arrogance of the Bush administration.”  The most important change would occur in the Middle East, where “decades of putting Israel’s interests first” would end.
