I don’t feel like blogging, nor would I have much of anything interesting (and certainly nothing humorous) to say if I did feel like blogging. Frankly, I am still bummed out by the events of yesterday, from the fawning slobberfest on display at mainstream media outlets (which carried through to today) to the hate-filled and thoroughly hateful behavior on the part of the “progressive” left towards the outgoing President.

The fact is that the new President has never advanced a single policy with which I agree. More to the point, I vehemently disagree with every damned thing he has in mind for the country. Every Goddamned thing. Still, when it is eventually time for The One to leave office (assuming there’s anything left of the country when that happens), I wouldn’t think of behaving toward him as the animals did toward President Bush.

I’ll snap out of it; I just don’t know when.


  1. I usually listen to public radio during the day (WHYY or NJN) but yesterday was an exception.
    From the way the National Public Radio people were carrying on, you would have thought that President-Elect Obama had just found the cure for polio, or AIDS.

  2. I haven’t turned my TV on, or listened to the radio, at all since late Monday night — for the very reasons that you wrote about. I’m certainly not a fan of President Bush, but I don’t think he deserved the kind of treatment you describe.
    As for The One… I can only hope that the consequences of his (and Congress’) actions and policies finally wake people up to the kind of nonsense that too many of us have gotten used to. Until then, I’m ready and willing to respond as necessary to what happens.

  3. I respect Mr. Obama and wish him well. If he succeeds the nation succeeds. Also, the disrespect that was shown to outgoing President George W. Bush was disgraceful and showed a total lack of class. Animals would have known better.

  4. Kevin, What on Earth do you mean if he succeeds? If he succeeds then he will have implemented his agenda and i am not sure our country can withstand some of the harmful policies he has in store.
    Do not listen to his centrist talk…look at his liberal voting record and how he never bucked his party. His actions are far more telling than his supposed wonderful oratory.
    Don’t be duped by liberals who are protecting this political rookie.
    Another thing…you can’t possibly speak of racial equality as you continually hype this man’s skin color. It is hypocrisy in it’s finest.

  6. I hear you Jim – it’s beyond disheartining…

  7. Isn’t it ironic, (don’t you think?) that all the things the left accuses the right of being; hateful, mean, inhumane; is exactly how THEY actually act?

    No. Not ironic. F*cking sad and sickening.

  8. Just saw the wedding dance vid, thanks for posting it. I hope you can forward all the messages to that couple.
    And on this topic, hang in there. The honeymoon was over before it started, and reality will hit shortly.
    All those people who voted based on race will have a rude awakening when they snap their fingers and nothing happens.

  9. “One ought never to turn one’s back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!”

    Fight the sumbitch..fight him with words and with letters to MSM and letters to congress people who act like the actually believe in what the constitution stands for. And when the time comes fight the sumbitch on the streets…and I fear that time is coming…especially if he is successful

  10. buck up, my friend, we have much work to do while we are still able. there is a test of free speech happening right now in the Netherlands, which is a good example of the path we’re headed down if muslim backed suppression of free speech wins there. we all know barry is sympathetic to the muslims, he made that quite clear in his oratory on the 20th. he made it quite clear today that he has no problems throwing the horrors of 9/11 in the faces of the families and friends who suffered such tragic loss on that day by all but excusing those who would, at the first opportunity, incite such evil again and again. gotta climb back on that horse, Jimbo and join the freedom ride again. we’ve got two years to help overthrow the trolls in the big white building with the dome on it down yonder and then work on cleaning out # 1600. we needs ya, pard.

  11. “His actions are far more telling than his supposed wonderful oratory.”

    I have been thinking about that, He helped pour $150 million from the Chicago Annedburg challenge into the pockets of political activists, not one red cent was spent on programs to improve academic performance,

    He worked to pour another $150 million into the pockets of his construction/racketeer buddies and the construction was so shoddy the buildings are unlivable.

    Is he a starry eyed Liberal Ideologue?

    Or did he just say and do what needed to be said and done where he was to amass political power?

    “Do not listen to his centrist talk…look at his liberal voting record and how he never bucked his party”

    He may not need the far left wing of his party anymore he use needs the moderate centrist voters for a second term.

    Maybe he is just a pragmatic Crooked Cook County politician?

    I can deal with that better than a crusader

  12. Dan,

    Of course he still needs the far left in his party. The moderates and centrists are not in enough numbers in the Democrat party to withstand the assault from a very aggressive leftist wing of that party.
    He may not need them in as much as he needs to keep them placated. I think that’s what the whole Club Gitmo thing was about. His XO basically affirms that. It basically states that they will not be a bunch of Bush meanies…but if they have to they maintain that right.
    I think Obama is somewhere in between the liberal ideologue crusader and typical Cook County pol. He has actually shown both of those faces. That is a tough person to beat because once you corner the liberal crusader, the pragmatist pops out of nowhere and gets him out of that scrape by saying whatever needs to be said to save his bacon.
    In any regard….for the last 8 years we have been told dissent is the highest form of patriotism and I plan on keeping that rule in play.

  13. One good thing about Obama….He got Hilary Clinton the hell out of NY!! And that we New Yorkers are happy about.
    It was disgraceful how Bush was treated at the inauguration. At least he got a proper welcome home from Texas….loved all the red, white and blue “W”s they were waving. Surprised that the news actually showed that as they were always biased against Bush.

  14. I just watched the wedding video – so funny. Wish them all the best. As for these United States – I worry for our children. We are going down a very dangerous path-one that seems so obviously wrong. Very disappointing.

  15. I don’t guess it would matter to THE ONE. That the vast majority of the electorate that put him in office has been tested for Mad Cow Disease……and failed.

  16. read through some of your posts becqause your blog link was forwarded to me by a friend.

    I harbor no ill will toward Bush, but I can’t think of a single thing that he did well.

    you’re spouting respect for W, while trashing Obama – – without even giving him a chance to prove himself. that smacks of hypocrisy. something that is readily available all the way from right to left.

    this country’s political system is in need of an overhaul. i don’t think anyone’s up for the job. not w, not Obama, no one. ALL politicians make empty promises to get in office (left, right center; makes no difference) then make it their life’s mission to remain there, NOT to serve their electorate, just to disappear into a morass of bullshit and fly under the radar for 30 years. there are some starry eyed altrustic hero types who really want to do the right thing but at the end of the day the undertow of dishonesty drags them under too.

    it’s a fucking joke.

    the only benefit is that we get to write crap like this and get away with it.

    the divide between rich and poor gets bigger and the ever shrinking middle class bear a heavier burden year over year. the culture of “ME” becomes stronger and the mores that founded this country slip further off the radar.
