The Weekly Standard had a post stating that somebody wrote a book on Sarah Palin being persecuted by the mainstream media. My opinion is that Sarah Palin has not been persecuted but rather fairly criticized on character defects within her personality and a worldview that does not properly address the massive problems of that America has today such as the consequences of American imperialism, climate change, and massive inequity in society.
If the Republicans use her as a cheerleader or spokesperson for conservative causes, I conclude that is proper role for her. However, I do not respect her for being an expert on foreign and domestic policy and I think that she has very limited credentials in the areas of foreign and domestic policy. When she opens her mouth on policy matters, it just seems to be fodder for late-night TV shows and Olbermann’s “Worst Person in the World”. But I am a progressive liberal and so my comments on Palin would be probably considered to be biased.
“Cheney, who has emerged as a vocal defender of Bush administration policies since leaving the White House, said the intelligence obtained from harsh interrogation techniques had saved lives”
Will Dick Cheney ever learned that his methods never resulted in any real information? Will ever admit that the interrogation was done so it would justify the views of Bush Administration?
My opinion is that 09/11 made Bush and Cheney excessively paranoid about the real level of threats. Therefore, out of their fears, they resorted to torture because they needed their paranoid fears confirmed.
And Dick Cheney is very afraid to be brutally honest what happened there in 2001 and 2002. And I doubt that Cheney will never tell the truth because he is not capable telling the truth.
For him to tell the truth would be a miracle indeed.
One guy thinks so. From America’s Right Blog (http://www.americasright.com/2009/07/exploding-2008-election-myth.html),
“Barack Obama didn’t win because of the voters he attracted to the polls. He won because of the voters who stayed home. Specifically older, white voters who saw nothing they liked in either Barack Obama or John McCain.
This undercuts some of Obama’s political mandate, but even more importantly it proves that the conservatives have been right all along. The GOP didn’t lose because they were too far to the right. They lost because they were too far to the left. This is a simple fact that the MSM either can’t grasp or won’t admit, but I have little doubt that the Obama administration is well aware of it”
So this is the case. That grumpy, old white man stayed home to vote.
Why does the Republican Party feel that it has to defend the white male? Personally, I am a white male and do not need the Republican party to defend my race. I personally want more diversity and more tolerance in this country.
And when do I need the Republican party to preserve American traditional values? Even if I were a conservative Christian, I still do not need these guys to practice my faith.
I think that the free market has gone over line and these guys have no case anymore.
No wonder why my friend is having problems with her custody battle. The judge is elected by the same creeps who elected Darrell Issa.
From the Huffington Post,
“Dan Choi, a West Point graduate and officer in the Army National Guard who is fluent in Arabic and who returned recently from Iraq, received notice today that the military is about to fire him. Why? Because he came out of the closet as a gay man on national television
I met my fair share of angry conservatives on the web. They have rage
and disgust at Obama for doing such things as trying to regulate the economy and pushing the economic stimulus. I found this guy on Topix that was over the top
“Read Glenn Beck’s “An inconvienent book”
pg 200 the UN passes a resolution UN resolution 1267 that tells the Taliban to hand over Osma bin Laden Oct.1999 during the weak, impotent Bill Clinton administration. Gee, I guess they didn’t listen and look what happened less than two years later. Sept 11th 2001. Clinton also had ten chances to kill Osama bin Laden between May 1998 and May 1999, but chose to do NOTHING! Sandy Berger stole those articles from our national archives and shoved them down hs pants and wasn’t prosicuted for doing so.
You liberals are stupid Obama Kool-aid drinkers that’s for sure. You morons have been hoodwinked and bambozled by the liberal media and by the (TIC) teleprompter in Chief who is a lying hoax of a liberal fool.
Tripling our debt in just 60 days is way worse than Bush doubling it in 8 years. What has Obama got to show for it? NOTHING~! Any money in your pockets? NO!
6 billion dollars wasted down the pisser on Chrysler. For what? Your kids and grandkids will be stuck with Obama’s massive debt in the tens of trillions of dollars and they won’t let you forget it, you immoral, Godless socialist liberal bastards.
You liberals think you know it all, but you don’t know SHIT!
You’d like to lock up Americans instead of the radical Muslims, who killed 3,000 innocent Americans and almost sank a US navy destroyer that killed 17 sailors, you sick, sick liberal SOB’s.
They even had to tell Muslim terrorists Abu Zubaydah that the caterpillar they put in his cell wasn’t poisonous. Oh brother. We did that kind of things as kids and as fraternity pranks and the liberals call it torture and want American HEROES to stand trial and go to jail for it? You evil, nasty liberal scum.
Not Obama’s 787 BILLION dollar ‘porklus’ bill with 8,100 EARMARKS in it.
That’s now excuse for Obama spending 3.6 trillion dolar in just 60 ays and wasted billion more on big auto the banks and other bailouts.
At least we got a stimlus check for $60o per person and Obama has given me shit.
By 2019 Obama deficit will be 23.5 TRILLION dollars, way more than our entie GDP, you senile socialist fool.
Like the Swine flu pandemic, you old goat. Like the proof about shots NOT causing autism and flu shots not causing everyone to DIE like you said. You moron.
Bush left us with 5 MILLION course of tamifu ad Relunza, ths helping out the (TOPUS)Telepromter of the United States again. The lousy bum.
Gov Paterson the liberal socialist is making you pay more for your wine and beer, you drunken dirty bastard. You must love that. lol You sad, moronic loser. Pay for those malt liquor drinking porch monkeys and start ‘spreading the wealth’ you cheap socialist prick. Didn’t Hans get VP Joe Biden’s memo not to fly. lol What an asswipe.
Liberals are all dumbasses.
Jack Kemp RIP”
Reminds me of somebody. It is called an angry, resentful Archie Bunker. And the US is still has lots and lots of those folks aroud
The dogfight in the Republican party has began over Arlen Specter. The Politico reports
Faced with a high-profile defection and the prospect of political irrelevance in the Senate, Republicans took off the gloves Wednesday for a ferocious game of finger-pointing.
Republican Sens. Orrin Hatch and George Voinovich blamed the Club for Growth for imposing a right-wing litmus test that chased Arlen Specter out of the Republican Party. The Club for Growth blamed Specter — first for helping to ruin the GOP and then for leaving it. A leading Republican strategist blamed the party for turning its back on moderates. Sen. Lindsey Graham sniped at Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele. Specter’s pollster blamed the stimulus bill. Karl Rove blamed Specter himself.
And the National Republican Senatorial Committee set about trying to taint Specter among Pennsylvania Democrats by reminding them that he was once aligned with Republican President George W. Bush.
In the nasty game of Who Lost Specter, only Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell seemed to go unscathed — although his pain
will come as he tries to lead a caucus that is likely to be too small to stand in the way of anything the Democrats want to do.
Specter decided to switch parties after concluding that there was no way he could beat former Rep. Pat Toomey in next year’s Republican primary. That made the Club for Growth — the free-market group Toomey once led — a fat target for Republican ire Wednesday, and both Hatch and Voinovich took aim”
The further implosion of the Republican continues. The party has became a shell of when it was a real party in 1994. Now, I watching and waiting as other destroy itself.
“North Carolina Republican Rep. Virginia Foxx is questioning whether the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old gay University of Wyoming student, was a bias attack motivated by his sexual orientation.
Shepard’s mother Judy was in the gallery at the time, according to a senior Democratic aide.
The socially conservative Foxx, arguing against a new Democratic hate crimes bill that includes new protections for gays and lesbians, described the description of Shepard’s murder as a anti-homosexual attack a “hoax” — and questioned whether prior bias crime legislation should have been named after him”
Do these people ever get it? Why do they resort to making statements based on faulty conclusions. This guy is fodder for Olbermann’s Worst Person in the World.
