Welcome to Superbowl Sunday and yet another great edition of The BoBo Carnival of Politics. You will notice we have some new submitters as well as some of the regulars. Please do stop by and let these bloggers know your thoughts regarding their posts.
Kinda scary, isn’t it LSM? Spot on analysis of his speech there. But, I’m not surprised. Michelle Obama herself said it last summer when she was on The View – she said Obama wants to remake this country and to change our culture. The problem is that too many people just glossed it over and didn’t really pay attention to that statement. Likewise, other than your analysis – I really haven’t heard anybody else pointing it out as poignantly as you have. Keep up the great fight!
Wow! I didn’t realize you guys had such troubles going on down under. None of that was reported over here. Seems a shame that a group of racists have hijacked a national holiday. Seems to me that banning Australia Day would be equivalent to banning our Independence Day. Do you think that would happen?
A post I can agree with. However, don’t mistake Republicans for Conservatives – two different things. What you detailed as a plan of action are Conservative principles. Unfortunately, we have too many RINO’s in the party that are liberal or moderate-left. In addition to Republicans returning to Conservative principles – we need to get the RINO’s out of he party since they are diluting it.
Michael Haltman presents Barack Obama: The Great American Apologist [del.icio.us] posted at The Political and Financial Markets Commentator, saying, “Al-Arabiya Gets The First T.V. Interview With President Obama”
Michael – excellent analysis on that interview – a must see by all my readers in case they did not see/hear the interview themselves. When I first heard it I just hung my head. This guy just does not get the full grasp of his position and what it means in the world. The rest of the world, and especially the muslims, will interpret his words just as you and I have. America is bad and everything is our fault. This just gives those islamofascists more ammunition for recruiting more jihadists to do more damage to Americans and American interests. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – Obama is an idiot and he is too inexperienced to be our President.
Hey, Steve – welcome back. I’m glad you posted this up. I first heard about this last month, just before Christmas, and had intended on doing a post about it – but completely forgot about it. After reading the deleted words – it all came rushing back again. I think you are absolutely correct – there is a definite agenda there and you don’t need to be a rocket surgeon to recognize it.
Steve Simbeck presents 4 out of 5 experts agree that 4 out of 5 experts are experts posted at No Mato mi Pavo, saying, “Written just before the inauguration but I think it still resonates.”
Hmmm…very interesting. I guess I would have to say I’m an expert on superheroes since I watch cartoons! Silly ain’t it?
Hi MadKane – welcome back. Sure – there were concessions – but – this is a bloated spending bill and has absolutely nothing to do with stimulating the economy. It will only increase the size of government. This bill could be widdled down to $80Billion if it were truly just an economic stimulus bill. I stand firm with those who opposed it – including the smart 11 Democrats who opposed it. Not all the Dems were on “Stretch” Pelosi’s side on it either.
Hey Seth – I like the visuals. Good discussion regarding the tunnels and the bombing of them. Let’s hope Israel gets them shut down completely!
Silicon Valley Blogger presents No 2009 Economic Stimulus Check? How Obama’s Stimulus Plan Affects The Middle Class posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “Thanks!”
Nice summary of the stimulus plan – if you can actually call it that. I’ll be posting up a detailed look at it here shortly. One other thing you might point out regarding that $500 tax credit – other than you are correct – it’s not much – is that the $500 credit will be broken up incrementally over multiple paychecks – and therefore will have very little effect at all. I don’t think those boneheads up in D.C. ever took a economics class or ever ran their own businesses. If they did, they wouldn’t be putting stupid crap like what you pointed out in this plan.
A great post looking at reform in Indiana. This could possibly be a microcosmic look at how we can reshape the Federal government. Great post, Josh.
Greg presents TNMilitant.com » Blog Archive » Terror shouldn’t be treated like other crimes. posted at TNMilitant.com.
Right on, Greg! Those idiots on the left who want to treat terrorists like regular criminals just don’t get it. These guys are considered enemy combatants when captured outside of U.S. territory – so – therefore – they should have not access to our courts as our constitution does not pertain to them. The article you linked to is very eye-opening. This is exactly what happens when you treat a terrorist like a regular criminal.
Sorry, Seth – gonna have to agree with Livni on this one. No head of any state should have open dialogue with rogue and terrorist leaders without preconditions. Obama is drafting a letter in order to open up direct dialogue with Iran. This goes against decades of foreign policy. Not even past Democrat Presidents have ever dealt directly with rogue heads of states without preconditions. What Obama is doing is very dangerous, and as Livni pointed out, shows weakness in the minds of the Arab world. Your examples are incomplete. Reagan never had direct conversations with Gorbachev until all the preconditions were met and only after other delegate teams met with the Russians first. Obama needs to do the same thing. Send Shillary or some other delegates first with the preconditions that have to be met first before we open dialogue. Obama’s letter to Imanutjob will mean that Iran will surely see this as an opening to attack Israel openly.
Buck Says presents Pelosi In Charge: How can That Happen in a Sane World? posted at Buck Says, saying, “Nancy Pilosi and Harry Reed in charge?–We are in real trouble now.”
Hey Buck – I don’t know if you heard the interview with Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor – but – apparently, Obama pretty much said the same thing to him. When Cantor pointed out to Mr. Obama that the people elected him because he promised change in government and to help the economy they needed tax cuts – Obama told him “I won. I will trump you on that.” Obama and Pelosi are on the same page there. I don’t think we will see any real change in government other than to see it get bigger.
Alexander Woods presents Rod Blagojevich: Crooked Politician or Machiavellian Hero? posted at The Daily Destiny.
Howdy Alexander – I guess it depends on how one looks at Machiavelli. I personally did not see Machiavelli as a hero – I saw him as a crook who would say anything to get what he wants – a smooth talker. For me – crooked politician and Machiavellian are one and the same. But, you do justice by pointing out Blago’s absurdity. Great post!
Excellent use of scripture for backing up your points there Allen. I would just change one thing – you say “We do not need bailouts or handouts. We need repentence.” Based on what you have written, I can see why you might say we need repentence. However, I would say we need to take responsibility for our actions and to fix what we screwed up. Sure, it might be Wall Street’s fault, in concert with our Fed, for the huge economic mess – but – each and every one of us have some responsibility for that downfall as well (part of which you point out.) Rather than blame government and Wall Street – we need to accept the part we played in it and do what we need to do to fix it so that we can be responsible “parents” and not leave this burden to our children and their children.
I actually read this after I responded to your previous submission. An excellent discussion on taking responsibility rather than looking for that hand out! Yes we can! LOL.
That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of The BoBo Carnival of Politics using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
