Okay, it’s a Scott Brown ad (squishy RINO, but preferable to the faux-Pocahontas). The first two minutes of the video, however, are positively brilliant….and use the actual words of many democrat heroes, as well as the great Ronald Reagan.
Enjoy! And a h/t to the unknown NewsBuster who first posted this video.
Excuse me, Mr. Obama, your inner Marxist is showing. Bloody Hell!!!!
I’ve read a couple of great rebuttals, and my friend Kev wrote a fabulous one, where he fisked Obama’s off-prompter, pro-government whine:
“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me... [No there is not] ..— because they want to give something back...[I give back in my own way and in my own time] …They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. [LIAR, no loans from no one, EVER]You didn’t get there on your own...[YES I DID].. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart [YEA MAYBE HOW ABOUT TAKING CHANCES AND RISK?!!.]There are a lot of smart people out there. [SMART DON'T EQUAL MONEY]It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help [LIAR]. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life, [ALL MY PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS SUCKED, EVERY SINGLE ONE] Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. [YOU ARE KILLING IT]Somebody invested in roads and bridges. [YEA ME WITH MY TAXES] If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that...[LIAR].. Somebody else made that happen….” [LIAR]
His comments seem to derive from a naive vision of a government-centered society and a government-directed economy. It stems from an idea that the nucleus of society and the economy is government not the people. … It is antithetical to the American idea. We believe in free communities, and this is a statist attack on free communities. … As all of his big government spending programs fail to restore jobs and growth, he seems to be retreating into a statist vision of government direction and control of a free society that looks backward to the failed ideologies of the 20th century.
Go read the whole thing, I assure you, it’s well worth your time. I ♥ Paul Ryan.
As I was pondering Obama’s idiotic and clueless rant, I came across a great photo-essay at the UK Daily Mail, of New York City in the early 1900′s. In looking at the photos, one can just see the hustle and bustle of entrepreneurship going on. Compare and contrast to Obama’s basic sentiment that nothing is possible without government involvement.
I suppose Barack Obama is just too busy working on jobs campaigning (4 days this week) to convene his very own Council on Jobs again. It’s been six months since Mr. Jobs, Jobs, Jobs (O’Bite-Me’s 3 letter word) and this bi-partisan group of business leaders has met. But hey, at least Obama has his priorities straight, getting re-elected, so that he can have four more years of squashing the private sector whilst growing the oh-so-efficient government.
Now, if we could just have a few more attacks on Anne Romney’s horse, my life would be complete.
Hmmm. I ran across this very interesting piece on Ulsterman’s White House Insider. It seems that The Won’s little “Al Green moment” at a fundraiser a few weeks ago wasn’t the spontaneous act of the hippest, coolest dude on the planet. Rather, it was a pre-planned, heavily voice-coached, practiced-for-weeks routine, which was choreographed down to the overly exuberant crowd reaction, and pre-placed “fans” in the blogosphere to ensure the video went viral, down the the omnipresent use of the word “cool” in blog comments.
Go read the article, which dishes dirt on the whole thing, including the stage make-up and dye job. Then watch the video.
I know “some say” Ulsterman’s White House Insider is a figment of his imagination. But watch that video and tell me it’s not true, because you can’t do it! Obama may be a consummate liar, but he’s a very, very bad actor (oh how I wish you could hear “very, very bad actor” in my head, with a distinct Bawney Fwank wisp). Now watch that video a second time. The tell is there, before his little stunt, and his self-satisfied grin, and “come on” gesture with his hand (“ain’t I the coolest?”) is proof positive.
Coolest man on the planet? Hardly. Biggest phoney evah!
Politico’s Jonathan Martin recently mocked conservatives in Florida, by calling the northern Florida counties on the border “cracker counties”. When confronted about the slur, he tried to walk it back, stating “In the Florida political-cultural parlance, it refers to a Florida native. It is as anybody down there who knows Florida culture knows politics well a term of endearment, and widely used.”
Now I am an “anybody down there” native Floridian, and I know for a fact the actual derivation of the term “cracker”. Furthermore, it absolutely is not a term used to refer to all native Floridians. The comments on those two blog posts ran the gamut, and of course, we got around to the carpetbagging snowbirds, etc. And my fellow NB’er, GW, posted a fabulous Florida joke, which needs sharing:
A Greyhound bus was driving cross-country with a guy each from Idaho, Iowa, New York, and Florida. After a ways, the guy from Idaho opens the window and throws out a bag of potatoes, explaining that he’s going back home where there are plenty of potatoes, so he doesn’t have to lug that heavy bag around any more. After another ways, the guy from Iowa throws out his heavy bag of corn. After another ways, the guy from Florida opens his window and throws out the New Yorker.
That covers my basic sentiment about the Carpetbaggers (including Jonathan Martin).
A teacher asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Obama fans.
Not really knowing what an Obama fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny.
The teacher asked Little Johnny why he has decided to be different..again.
Little Johnny said, “Because I’m not an Obama fan.”
The teacher asked, “Why aren’t you a fan of Obama?” Johnny said, “Because I’m a Republican.”
The teacher asked him why he’s a Republican. Little Johnny answered, “Well, my Mom’s a Republican and my Dad’s a Republican, so I’m a Republican.”
Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, “If your mom was a moron and your dad was an idiot, what would that make you?”
With a big smile, Little Johnny replied, “That would make me an Obama fan.”

Our lazy President just killed the Keystone Pipeline project. Color me disgusted. Every single thing this President does further destroys this economy. Thank you ever so much, Barack, for sending these 20,000 immediate jobs to China, and the estimated 250,000 jobs by 2015 overseas as well. Idiot.
