"Teachable Moments" Ignored

Stuck on Stupid

For someone who loves to lecture us on "teachable moments," you'd think he'd learn from one. One year into his presidency, The Chosen One's policies have been rebuked by the American public. Now, in his best "it ain't my fault" chat with Georgie Stephanopoulos, he tries to explain how even the bluest of bluest states rejected his radical left agenda. Unfortunately, it looks like he still doesn't get it. Today's NY Post has the full recap.

We were just so darn busy, we didn't effectively communicate with the public!

"If there's one thing that I regret this year, it's that we were so busy just getting stuff done and dealing with the immediate crises that were in front of us, that I think we lost some of that sense of speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are and why we have to make sure those institutions are matching up with those values," said Obama.
We should all be so busy and manage to go on 4 vacations totaling 26 days, play 29 rounds of golf, spend countless hours posing for magazine covers and host cocktail parties a few times a week.

Now, for the second part of that quote:
"I think we lost some of that sense of speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are and why we have to make sure those institutions are matching up with those values"
You see, he didn't get a chance to explain to us during his 42 news conferences, 158 interviews or his 411 speeches and remarks, including 52 addresses or statements on health-care reform efforts alone.

If only we did this faster!

But Obama maintained he was right to pursue a health-care fix. He claimed it wasn't a "personal hobby horse," and regretted only that it didn't go "faster."

"There is no doubt that that is something that we had to do," he said.
Brilliant. Ladies and Gentlemen, I bring you proof you can't fix stupid. The voters rejected this monstrosity of a healthcare bill precisely BECAUSE it was rushed through! They were trying to force this down the throats of the American public BEFORE anyone really had a chance to understand what was in this bill! Well, that and the weekend midnight votes, strong-arm tactics of his buddies in congress and that was rife with bribes and backroom dealing.

You gotta believe me!
"I do believe that we're in a stronger position now than we were in a year ago."
You have to be the only one.

Unemployment December 2008: 7.4%
Unemployment December 2009: 10.0%

Deficit Jan 2009: $6.3 Trillion
Deficit Jan 2010: $9.6 Trillion

Terrorists 2008: Face Military Tribunals in Guantanamo Bay, basic Geneva Convention rights.
Terrorists 2009: Face Civilian Trials in NYC, given full rights to an attorney reserved for American citizens.

Things are better today than they were a year ago only if you work for the government, belong to al-Qaeda, happen to be a union boss or have the Secret Service protecting you.

There's more in the interview about it was his busiest year (of course, he never had a real job before) and he uses the tired "blame the guy before me" excuse as well.

All in all, he wants us to believe he learned a lot from the loss in Massachusetts. Unfortunately, it looks like he really hasn't.

Big Dummy is Shocked(!) that al-Qaeda is Determined to Kill Us

I am convinced now. We are all going to die with these idiots in charge. First Big Sister claimed "the system worked" when the Panty-Bomber nearly blew up 300 people on Christmas. Although she backtracked the next day, she still did not instill any confidence with the American public. But, you have to give her credit, she was at least working and available to the media. Her boss was working on his golf game and enjoying the beach in Hawaii while cohorts Leon Panetta (CIA Director) and Mike Leiter (National Counterterrorism Director) couldn't be bothered to interrupt their Christmas vacations either. Panetta was enjoying Monterrey, California and Leiter hitting the slopes!

Now, this:

Question: What was the most shocking, stunning thing that you found out of the review?

Big Sister: I think, following up on that, not just the determination of al Qaeda and al Qaeda Arabian Peninsula, but the tactic of using an individual to foment an attack, as opposed to a large conspiracy or a multi-person conspiracy such as we saw in 9/11, that is something that affects intelligence. It really emphasizes now the renewed importance on how different intelligence is integrated and analyzed, and threat streams are followed through. And, again, it will impact how we continue to review the need to improve airport security around the world.

Shocked that they are determined? Wow, just wow. I know there was a lot of criticism of this administration not taking the threat of Radical Islam seriously, but this all but confirms all of it was right on the mark.

My favorite part of her response, that she's also shocked that they would use "tactic of using an individual to foment an attack, as opposed to a large conspiracy or a multi-person conspiracy such as we saw in 9/11". Seriously? She never heard of the shoe bomber, Richard Reid? I am a total loss. I have always considered this administration the worst ever, totally inept and full of themselves, but it baffles the mind of any sane, rational human being that this knucklehead is in charge of our security.

Instead of focusing on real threats to American lives when she was confirmed for this job, she hit the ground running on the imagined threat of some white supremacist group who may have a problem with a half-black president. Oh yes, and renaming "terrorism" a "man-caused disaster". It is misguided focus that has become the hallmark of this administration. Instead of concerning themselves with terrorist groups that want to murder as many Americans as possible, they were "focused like a laser" on socialized healthcare, cap and trade, the olympics, golf, basketball, vacations and dinner parties.

We're all going to die with these maroons in charge. We'll be lucky to make it to 2012.

Isolated Extremist? REALLY?

Just a bad Joke? Or evil Joker?

I am beginning to change my opinion of the President. I no longer think he's a completely inept, ill-equipped neophyte that has no idea what he's doing and am beginning to think that this man is dangerous to this country. I could go on about bankrupting the country, supporting dictators, or eliminating American freedoms by mandating government run health care, but I will address the most important threat to this nation. Terrorism, or the War on Terror has all but been ignored or denied by this administration and hundreds of Americans almost got killed due to this apathy on Christmas.

al-Qaeda is a highly sophisticated terrorist organization that has very dangerous, highly-trained lunatics hell bent on our destruction. The organization has members in dozens of countries and is constantly recruiting new members in all sorts of ways, from prayer groups to facebook. They have terrorist camps throughout the Middle East and Africa. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was one of their recruits. He left his home for an al-Qaeda training camp in Yemen to commit jihad against the United States. He, according to the Yemen government, is one of hundreds trained and committed to terrorist attacks on the United States.

Now, our idiot (or dangerous?) President decides to downplay any connection to a significant radical religious movement that has killed thousands of Americans in the past and is dedicated to killing us all by calling him an "isolated extremist". Are you F&#king Kidding Me?

It is exactly this naive (or negligent?) attitude that allows Muslim terrorists take advantage of our laws and political correctness and kill us. Does The Chosen One care and is just incompetent? Or, is he deliberately enabling them? These days, I am really beginning to wonder.

Government Flushes More Taxpayer Money Down The Detroit Toilet

In addition to the tens of billions to help pay pensions at GM and Chrysler, the Obamanation Administration announced a plan to flush another $3.8 Billion of our money into GMAC on top of the $12.5 Billion already down the toilet.

Someone please tell me where the insanity ends and we stop throwing money away on top of more money at failed companies.

Big Sister Gives The System a Solid B+

Big Sister is a Big Dummy

So, a terrorist boards a plane after his father reports him to the US embassy, he is added to a terror watchlist, buys a one way ticket with cash, does not have any luggage and comes close to blowing up the plane with explosives smuggled in his underwear, yet, SOMEHOW, "the system worked"?!?!?!?!?!

Days later, while her boss was still on vacation and hadn't gotten around to commenting on the terror attack, she backtracks and says she was taken out of context. Not sure how you take this out of context:
"What we are focused on is making sure that the air environment remains safe, that people are confident when they travel. And one thing I’d like to point out is that the system worked. Everybody played an important role here. The passengers and crew of the flight took appropriate action."
Somehow, Big Sister changes roles to become Big Spinster explains that those darn partisans took this out of context and that she was really talking about the reaction after everyone knew that there was an attempted terror attack.

Finally, she knows who is to blame for this....BUSH! These rules have been in place since 2006! Hotair's Ed Morrissey sums it up perfectly:
"The rules on the lists have been in place since 2006. The Obama administration has been in office since January. If the rules on transferring people from watch lists to no-fly lists are a problem, shouldn’t that have been a higher priority than, say, revamping the entire American health-care system or pushing cap-and-trade bills? It seems like a bigger priority than flying to Copenhagen twice and coming home empty-handed both times, once on climate change and once on the Olympics. Of course, Barack Obama doesn’t have to worry about flying with radical jihadis from Nigeria when he travels abroad."
I am guessing he wasn't more carefully watched because on Janet's Planet, A) he isn't a terrorist, but someone trying to cause a "man-caused disaster" and B) he wasn't part of some white supremacist group or returning veteran who may have a problem with a half-black president.

Thisss Bill is Freakin' Awwshum...

Drunk Senator wants to know why thoshhh Repubblicansh won't get on board with the health care monstrosity.....

Kinda reminds me of this....

What a Solid B+ Looks Like Today


Anyone who knows me knows I am a NY Post junkie. I ready cover-to-cover daily. For every Ashley Dupree stunt that damages the paper's credibility, there is a new writer that I am introduced to. So far, I am really liking the Michael Goodwin column. Yesterday's had probably one of the best summaries written on this train wreck of an administration:

Voters by a large margin have said for months they don't want the health-care overhaul he's pushing, so he pushes harder. They want less spending and debt, so he doubles down on pork, bailouts, handouts and taxes.

They thought he would deliver bipartisanship, and he gives his hard-left allies the keys to the kingdom.

They worry about terrorism, so he wants to close Gitmo and move the worst of the worst to the homeland. With Ground Zero still a mess, he gives the 9/11 plotters civilian trials in New York.

His approval ratings are speeding downhill and some 60 percent say the country is on the wrong track. He responds by giving himself a "good solid B-plus" for his first year.

And he says Wall Street bankers "don't get it."

A solid B+? Really???

Global Warming Fascist Proposes One-Child Policy for You, Not for Her

Better than you

Typical liberal hypocrite Diane Francis opines in today's Canadian National Newspaper that we should all adapt China's One-Child-Per-Family policy, but fails to mention she has two. Should she have to sacrifice one to Al Gore?

The New York Times Sells Out America Again

I would think this is a good thing, but I am not a liberal. Why not employ whoever is willing to kill terrorists?

Funny how the Times has to reach back years to come up with a scoop when they miss out on so much the top of my head here.... ACORN, Global Warming Scam, Bowing to Kings, Siding with Dictators, 12 Trillion Dollar Deficit, the 11 month decision on what to do in Afghanistan, etc. None of these stories are "fit to print" apparently.

Nazi, er, Obama Youth - Part 4

At least one of the kids has a brain in his head and knows what he's talking about. Still, he still has to sing in reverence to Dear Leader.
