Worst Picture Of The Year: The Con Artist.



Sorta brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it? (Gee, I bet it hurt when the idiot banged his head on the chopper's hatch.)

Thanks, JonBerg, for putting me on to this!

Arizona’s Brewer to Skip Obama’s Black-Tie Dinner At White House. 
Sunday, 26 Feb 2012 By Newsmax Wires

She and “Sheriff Joe” (Arpaio) have more cajones than all the DC elected officials COMBINED.


Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who faced off with President Barack Obama on an airport tarmac last month, won’t attend the National Governors Association annual black-tie dinner at the White House tonight.
Brewer said in an interview Saturday that she had a scheduling conflict.
Brewer . . . laughed when asked to identify her scheduling conflict.
I can think of more than a few other govs that ought to fire back an RSVP of, "Not just No, but HELL NO!"

DAMMIT! That Was MY line!

Here’s Hillary Clinton really close to a big whale

During her stay in Mexico last weekend for the G20 Summit, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had a close encounter with a whale. Seriously, it’s as weird as it sounds.


That’s her in the green. The whale is the one in the water.

Not Only Do They Walk Among Us... They’re On Our Payroll!

Obama’s Jarrett: ‘People Who Receive that Unemployment Check Go Out and Spend It and Help Stimulate the Economy’
BY DANIEL HALPER
This evening [Feb 21, 2012,] speaking at North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina, White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said that folks getting and spending unemployment checks is a healthy thing . . . because it stimulates the economy:


“Even though we had a terrible economic crisis three years ago, throughout our country many people were suffering before the last three years, particularly in the black community,” Jarrett said. “And so we need to make sure that we continue to support that important safety net. It not only is good for the family, but it’s good for the economy. People who receive that unemployment check go out and spend it and help stimulate the economy, so that’s healthy as well.
As Jonathon M. Seidl from The Blaze said, “While the audio may sound incredible, the argument has been paraded out before. In August, Press Secretary Jay Carney said nearly the same thing:
“It is one of the most direct ways to infuse money directly into the economy because people who are unemployed and obviously aren’t running a paycheck are going to spend the money that they get. They’re not going to save it, they’re going to spend it. And with unemployment insurance, that way, the money goes directly back into the economy, dollar for dollar virtually.”



Let’s look at that a little closer. Unemployment checks -- the money you get for not having a job -- actually create jobs? Really? Money for not having a job creates jobs? Doesn’t that seem to be a bastardization of trickle-down economics, with a communist flavor? Aren’t businesses -- not the unemployed -- the job creators? And with that logic, should we just put everyone on the dole?
Seidl points out that, then just a week later, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack went on MSNBC to make the case that food stamps are job creators:
Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack told MSNBC’s Morning Joe that the Obama administration has a jobs program already in place -- and it’s food stamps. When asked about new numbers that show one in every seven Americans now receiving food stamps from the federal government, Vilsack said that’s good news. Food stamps create jobs, Vilsack insisted, and managed to even come up with a new multiplier effect number:



Back at the time, Ed Morrissey of Hot Air asked:
So here’s the question. If food stamps create jobs, like Vilsack says here, and we’re putting record numbers of Americans on food stamps, then why aren’t we seeing record job creation? If every dollar spent on food stamps creates $1.84 in production, as Vilsack argues, and the number of food stamp recipients keeps rising, then why haven’t the GDP numbers reflected that fabulous growth?
There are two answers. . . The supposed multiplier effect does not take into consideration the cost of taking capital from the private sector, where it can be put to use for actual growth and job creation, for use by the government.
The other answer? The multiplier effect is completely bogus. For one thing, much of the money gets absorbed by the government bureaucracies that manage these programs. Second, as I alluded earlier, the evidence we see all around us shows us that we can’t get economic growth through government welfare programs.  If what Vilsack said was true, we’d be better off seizing all income and handing out food stamps. 
There are good humanitarian and social reasons for safety-net programs like unemployment insurance and food stamps, but economic growth isn’t one of them. The rise in both are indicators of failing economics.
Which brings us back to, “Money for not having a job creates jobs? Doesn’t that seem to be a bastardization of trickle-down economics, with a communist flavor? Aren’t businesses -- not the unemployed -- the job creators? And with that logic, should we just put everyone on the dole?”

Yeah, I guess so... until you run out of other people’s money (thank you, Margaret Thatcher.)

How do you even talk to people who have logic(?) like this?

We’ve come to a point in time where Democrats and Republicans can’t even talk together anymore. 

I truly believe that I’ll see a civil war in my lifetime. And it won’t be too civil.

Happy Presidents' Day!

Here's To Ya, Obimbo!

AND... to some of the other great socialist pieces of crap, like: Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson (may you all rot in hell.) 

Of course, we can't forget about Little Jimmy Carter -- so stupid that he was dangerous and now he's so stupid that he's just senile. 

Oh yeah, and don't forget our FIRST real BLACK president -- Bill Clinton!

Hooray.

(Hey, AttackWatch, you gettin' all of this?!)

Makes ya proud to be an American, don't it?

What's So Hard To Understand About NO COMPROMISE?!

Ever since “Boner” became Speaker, he’s given it away. We can be so close to what we want and he can ALWAYS manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. As in the article below, there have been times when no compromise was even necessary -- when it was going our way -- yet, he’ll STILL find a way to compromise.

Just ONE example is when he didn’t stand strong on his demands for the debt ceiling with Obimbo. That’s when Obimbo was given the full deck of cards to create the “Super Committee.” That worked out really well, didn’t it?

Is this just what cry-babies do? Or, maybe, 20 years in the House with Queen Pelosi has something to do with it. Come to think of it, I’d go around crying all the time, too, if I had to think about being around Pelosi... PERIOD!



Like I've said before, I'll vote Republican. But I'm going to focus more on the House and Senate races so that, hopefully,
 we’re not completely screwed, down-ballot, later on. 


Boehner Sabotaging Fast and Furious Probe?

From The Patriot Update -- Rumors abound this week of secret negotiations, backdoor meetings and veiled threats aimed at halting Rep. Issa’s investigation of the Fast and Furious scandal. Regretfully, such rumors are all too credible given Speaker Boehner’s history of always seeking a compromise even when victory is in sight. 
What’s going on here? Every time Issa’s committee holds a public hearing, new evidence comes to light. Why should the investigation be aborted? Why would Republicans want the investigation halted? What possible “deal” could the White House offer to Boehner to persuade him to end the investigation? The only compromise Republicans in Congress should accept in the case of Attorney General Holder is his early resignation instead of impeachment and removal. 
The reported “deal” Boehner and Holder are discussing would let higher ups in the Department of Justice off the hook if they prosecute one or two individual ATF supervisors. Holder would then claim he “cleaned up the mess” and be free from any moral or political culpability. How does that sound, folks? 
Rep. Issa must persevere in his investigation and seek the truth no matter where it leads. As for Speaker Boehner, if he has a problem with this, he should go into the hospital for a backbone transplant.
Maybe “Boner” needs to spend a little less time on the tanning bed and more time at the gym trying to build up that backbone.

And, maybe, the name “Boner” doesn’t fit him after all; he sure doesn’t have one up his back.

Vote For ME!

Why the hell NOT?! (I think I'll use this as my new campaign slogan. Catchy, huh?!)

I’ve probably got about as much sense, and 
I can be just as big a grease ball, as the rest of the politicians. AND, I have a better platform... NOTHING. 


I’m not going to lie and tell you stuff that you want to hear -- THEN, when I get into office, make a killing off of you. Straight out... if I get elected, it's gonna be ALL about ME.

I've even made you up a bumper sticker (below) that you can use. Just cut it out and slap it on that 4x4 and you’re good to go! (With apologies to Rick Santorum. Sorry, Rick. 

Nothing personal, it's just politics.) 

Why reinvent the wheel? 

See... I’ve saved you money already!

While we’re talking about money, send me any cash you can. It’ll help support my Dr Pepper habit and put diesel in my truck. I take all the major cards (or, whatever else you've got) -- but, I’d rather have cash. Cash is easier to hide from the IRS.


No campaign is complete unless you diss the other guys. And Obimbo is soooo EASY to diss. AND I've already sent this to his "Attack Watch" site (joke of the Internet -- if it's still even up -- bwah-hahahahaha!) so that he and Homeland Security can keep up-to-date with what I'm doing.



While you’re at it, check out the Democrats/Obimbo new info site.

Okay. So, here’s the official disclaimer and stuff you've got to have at the bottom so that it makes it look legit:

Smile... Things Could Be Worse.


So I did. 


Sure enough, things got worse.

20% Of Republicans Leaning To Obama!
For critics of Barack Obama, 2012 has been portrayed as a do-or-die year for the country -- an election that will determine whether America stays on the road to European-style socialism or veers right to reclaim its positions as the most vibrant economy in the world and the home of individual liberty.

But the 2012 election is looking more like a replay of 2008 than a do-over.

If you really want to torture yourself, you can read the rest of it here.

I’ve gotta go lie down for awhile.

You Can Be Really Creative...

...If You Don’t Toss Your Cookies While Having To Work With The Subject Matter.

There’s a Web site that has a contest where contestants use Photoshop to build a picture on a theme that the Web site selects. One of the themes was to build a picture that says “Goodbye to Nancy Pelosi” after she was no longer Speaker of the House. 


The only thing the contestants were given was this picture to work with.


Yep, that's pretty scary, huh?!

This was the winning entry!

By the way -- since Nancy Pelosi is no longer Speaker of the House, she's had to give up her private jet. This means she’ll be flying Southwest from now on because “Bags Fly Free.”

Here’s another gross one... belcho... and I can pretty well tell you that this WAS NOT done in Photoshop; remember who we’re talking about. 

Now -- let your mind run wild. I’ve gotta go wash my eyes out with bleach.

Obimbo Loves Ya, Mitten...

Just Keep Diggin That Hole!   

On Wednesday, February 1st, Erick Erickson of Red State said it best: “It is days like today that make me thankful I think they all suck. At least I’m thankful I’m in the firmly not Romney camp.”

Erickson went on to say:
Having told us only Romney was viable (with half-nods to Huntsman and Santorum) and having trotted out Elliot Abrams to smear Newt Gingrich with out of context quotes, even National Review is having trouble defending their candidate today.
This morning Mitt Romney said he wasn’t concerned about the poor. The poor, after all, have food stamps and Medicaid. But don’t worry. If the safety net is broken, Patrician Mitt Romney will fix it so the poor can stay comfortably poor. After all, just look what he did in Massachusetts. The poor can now wait 44 days to get in to see a doctor. Excelsior!
After making sure we all understood the poor were for the Democrats to be worried about, Romney decided to keep digging his hole even bigger. By the end of the day, Jim DeMint had to rebuke him.
Romney, digging his hole deeper, said his remark needed more context. The context, according to Romney, is that we have government programs to keep the poor . . . well . . . poor but comfortable:
We do have a very ample safety net in America, with Medicaid, housing vouchers, food stamps, earned income tax credit. We have a number of ways of helping the poor. And yet my focus and the area that I think is the greatest challenge that the country faces right now is not, is not to focus our effort on how we help the poor as much as to focus our effort on how to help the middle class in America.
Oh, but that’s not all. If you misunderstood patrician Mitt Romney, he trotted out the other New England patrician, John Sununu -- the man who advised George H. W. Bush to go with David Souter -- to dig the hole even deeper. Sununu told the National Review that their candidate has no intention of changing policies to those that might actually lift the poor out of poverty into the middle class.
“He was saying that we do not need to change policies for them. Same goes for the super-rich, who are fine. It’s the middle class; they’re the ones we need to be aggressive in helping. They’re the ones who’ve taken the brunt of the bad Obama policies of the past three years.”
Note the use of “they’re” in talking about the middle class. They have been hurt most. Not the poor. Not the rich. So much for the GOP condemning class warfare. Romney’s folks are going with it too. Where Obama goes for “fair shares”, Romney wants to focus only on those hurt “most.”
But the coup de grace came late today when, to mitigate the damage, Romney reminded everyone he supports automatic hikes in the minimum wage -- a truly conservative position.
The National Review sure does know how to pick them. Glad they’ll be defending him in the general. I’m not sure I’ll waste my time.
Erickson summed it up for me:  Sure, I’ll vote for him. But I think I’ll focus on House and Senate races so when the buyers remorse sets in on those who backed Romney we’re not completely screwed down ballot.”
