Obama’s Ego problem

Obama’s ego my have catastrophic effects on the country through decisions he or others make after he melts down due to the certainty of negativity to his agenda, think about this:

  • We know he has a huge ego or a god complex
  • He can’t stand any one questioning his policies (Joe the Plumber)
  • He doesn’t want the cartoonists to characterize his ears (Article)
  • He’s cautioned the White House Press Corps to not write negatively about him
  • He has DCCC petitioning against Rush Limbaugh for speaking out against him (See their website)
  • Editorial saying that criticizing the president is treason (unbelievable)
  • Another editorial claimed the “honeymoon” is over because Obama was slightly criticized

When you admonish the press and tell them what they can or can’t write or how they can portray him, he’s quashing the first amendment to protect his projected image. When you have the DCCC jumping on a commentator, out of context, for expressing his views you can bet Obama was behind it. Or are they so stupid they didn’t think it would backfire?

I believe all the above are signs that Obama is so self possessed that he will cave under the pressure of scrutiny and criticism, and when the inevitable end to the Obama love affair comes along he’ll have a breakdown. Either they will hide it and our “first time I’ve ever been proud of our country” or a buffoon called Biden will be calling the shots, any way you look at it we’re still screwed!

Was it said, someone liked to interview the Pope because they only had to kiss his ring!

Ugly Swirl of Accusations

So much has been said and so much has been ignored regarding the media bias in favor of the left wing, their socialist agenda and their Democratic lap dogs, that it seems hopeless the main stream media will ever mend it’s ways.

A good example is the recent article about Caroline Kennedy and the “ugly swirl of rumors” surrounding her dropping out of consideration for Hillary’s Senate seat.

The first time I saw any MSM reports of the “ugly rumors” was in the article citing them as the reason she dropped out! Like that was the reason she folded, not Governor Patterson signaling he wasn’t going to name her, forget her “qualifications you know”. I immediately thought about Sarah Palin and the MSM feeding frenzy over a maelstrom of ugly rumors about her and the daily “reporting” with the certainty they’re all true and their frantic attempts to verify them!

Day after day of Palin Bashing, and they’re still afraid of her!

Talk about bias, what crap! Impartiality is all but gone.

The collective

A modern day parable.

After Captain Picard was assimilated into the Borg collective he sent a message to the Enterprise – “I am Locutus… of Borg. Resistance… is futile. Your life as it has been… is over. From this time forward… you will service… us.” Well it didn’t come to happen and the Captain eventually returned to comand of the Enterprise. In later episodes the Borg were defeated.

You can see where this is going. A seemingly unstopable adversary with a mission to assimilate all cultures into a single minded entity, (read liberals) turning every species they encountered into Borg “drones” (liberals again) was eventually defeated by the aptly named “Enterprise” and the resourcefullness of free thinking individuals, and the Captain returned to command his ship.

 Borg=liberals –  liberals=Borg!

True words

Quote

“A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost She lowered her altitude
and spotted a man in a boat below.

She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would
meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied,

“You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation
of 2346 f eet above sea level.

You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09
minutes west longitude.”

She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a Republican.”

“I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically
correct , but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost.

Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”

The man smiled and responded, “You must be a Democrat.”

“I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”

“Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are or where you are going.

You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air.

You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to
solve your problem.

You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but, now
somehow, it’s my fault.”

The Big Three Bailout & Health Care

In a recent article by columnist David Broder, arguing in favor of national health care, he states that Barack Obama “could well argue the current plight of the Big Three automakers stems in part from from the burden (they) are carrying for the failures of our employer base health system.” And that the foreign auto makers are “operating in countries where the government and society pay the cost of health care.”

There is a serious credibility issue here; first off there is no proof that our health care system is broken. Ask any Canadian or other country’s citizen, who comes to the United States for treatment. They come here because they can’t get care or treatment in a timely fashion, or at all, in their home country. One Canadian friend of mine told me that Canada has a two tier health care system, the government paid health care and (thankfully) the care available here in the United States. Secondly a large portion of the “foreign companies” are building their cars here in the United States by American workers under our “broken” system. What he also doesn’t say is that the non-union foreign car companies labor costs are half of the Big Three’s labor cost, and the foreign car companies labor costs are still a third higher than the labor cost of the average private sector worker.

The problem is not with the health care system but the with the United Auto Workers Union leveraging the market share the Big Three once had into salaries and benefits unheard of in solvent and competitive industries. Equally to blame are the company managers who agreed to those inflated salaries and benefits while they were fat and happy, now they can no longer compete and want the taxpayer to bail them out.

Mr. Broder expects the government to relieve the Big Three of their burden by nationalizing health care. Will that solve Detroit’s problem, hardly, does anyone even believe that the UAW would give up their “gold-plated” coverage in favor of a national system? Think again.
