Obama Has Left The Building

Hey Kids!  This in an activity that invites participation from all of our blog readers and my fellow moderators. Here are the instructions:

Watch the following YouTube video of President Obama’s joint press conference with former President Bill Clinton.  The video is over 30 minutes (it involves Bill Clinton).  I’d urge you to watch all of the video because it is informative, but I’d ask, at least, that you watch the first 11 minutes to gain full context.  The critical moment is at 10:24. And then observe at least a little beyond that to watch Clinton’s interactions with the reporters.

Just check it out and let me know what hits you.  I won’t comment in the body of this post.  I’ll wait and make my observations later.  I’m interested in hearing your comments concerning how this reflects on Obama and what it has to say about Hill and Bill.  This is incredibly significant in so many ways, in my opinion.  Let’s see if you agree.

Clinton’s Glaring Hypocrisy

When he was the president, we found out that he’d smoked weed as a youngster. When faced with the prospect of an American public that largely frowned upon illegal drug use, particularly after Nancy Reagan’s spectacular “Just Say No” campaign, he had to answer the allegations. He said he’d tried it – “but I never inhaled,” came the now-infamous reply. It was then that we got a glimpse into the real Bill Clinton: the consummate lawyer, willing to bend or twist anything that was said or done so that it didn’t look so bad.

Later things got worse. His philandering ways, touted to the press by two of the very women he’d victimized, were bantered about and questioned by Democrats and Republicans alike. Then a quiet rumble started that he hadn’t grown up; his misdeeds had continued right under Hillary’s nose. Rumor had it that he’d had a sexual affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office. He stood up at a press conference and told all of America, with great conviction, “I did NOT…have…sexual relations with that woman – miss Lewinsky.” Later on it came out that she’d performed fellatio on him multiple times and he’d put a cigar in a place a cigar was never meant to go – then put it in his mouth. (What cracks me up about that are all the liberal anti-Bush protest signs that called for someone to give Bush a blow job so he could be impeached…that had almost nothing to do with it. He was impeached under accusation of perjury, not for his outrageous inability to keep it in his pants.)

During his campaign, he promised to end the military’s ban on gay and lesbian soldiers serving. Instead, once he was elected we got DADT and not so much as an apology. We just got excuses. Then Clinton, that stalwart champion of gay rights, signed the Defense of Marriage Act into law, all but guaranteeing homosexuals would never see their relationships recognized legally by the federal government. Oh, but he cared sooooo much about his gay and lesbian constituents. He was just determined to see that we were no longer second-class citizens. Good G-d, Ronald Reagan didn’t sign a single piece of anti-gay legislation into law and many of the gays I knew at the time he passed on celebrated his death with champagne!

Last year, Clinton said in an interview that if he’d still been in office the financial meltdown wouldn’t have happened. He blamed de-regulation on Republican Phil Gramm. Gramm did help write and push the legislation, but it couldn’t have been signed into law without Clinton’s approval – and he signed it on the first go. It’s been argued right here on this blog that Clinton only did it because he faced a “veto-proof majority.” I say horsehockey. Where was the protest? If that was the case, why didn’t he veto it and force the Republicans to hold an override vote? When you’re the president and you don’t believe in what Congress is giving you to sign into law (or remove from law, as it were), you don’t just give up when it looks bad. You stick to your guns so that everyone knows exactly what you think. That way, later on you can’t claim that it wasn’t clear what your stance was or what you would have done.

The repeal of Glass-Steagall has been partially blamed for the current crisis we’re in. That law would have stopped banks from taking far too many risks. The Community Reinvestment Act had already put us on the path; repealing Glass-Steagall, I think, hit the accelerator. Democrats worked alongside Republicans on the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999. Nobody gave it much opposition. In light of that, I’m curious to know what Clinton would have done with Barney Frank, who was sleeping with the head of Freddie Mac at the time and dismissed then-president Bush’s speech about the perils that were about to befall us (not that I’m giving Bush a pass, he should’ve had a better contingency plan in place than TARP).

Today, Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) was laid to rest. He passed on at age 92. Bill Clinton stood to eulogize him and said, quote, “He once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, what does that mean? I’ll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and hollows from West Virginia. He was trying to get elected.” His words bring yet more hypocrisy forth. Byrd didn’t join the KKK because he was trying to get elected; he founded the Crab Orchard chapter himself, collected dues and fees for robes, and was summarily voted the head of the chapter by the group he’d formed. THAT was when one of the new members told him that he needed to get into politics – something he himself said he’d not thought of before.

When Strom Thurmond passed away, the headline in the New York Times read, “Strom Thurmond, Foe of Integration, Dies at 100.” This week, the headline read, “Robert Byrd, Pillar of the Senate, Dies at 92.” It is a hypocrisy that we should not tolerate, yet we will. Even the NAACP gave Byrd a pass, but they never gave one to Thurmond. Byrd once wrote in a letter to a fellow senator, “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

What was Thurmond’s big controversy? Well, it wasn’t the deep-seeded racism of Byrd. At least he never called another human being a “mongrel”. He, like Byrd, voted against desegregation. Get that? BOTH OF THEM VOTED AGAINST IT. Byrd was also quite vociferously against Clinton’s desire to allow us to serve openly in the military. Of DOMA, he said, “The drive for same-sex marriage is, in effect, an effort to make a sneak attack on society by encoding this aberrant behavior in legal form before society itself has decided it should be legal…Let us defend the oldest institution, the institution of marriage between male and female as set forth in the Holy Bible.” And the gay elite still call ME a self-loathing closet case for refusing to be a liberal Democrat? You must be joking.

Yet today, Bill Clinton proved as useless and as incapable of providing honest facts as he ever has been. He, along with all other Democrats, was willing to give Byrd a pass but they were never willing to give Thurmond a pass. The uproar of Democrats who harbored deep resentment of Republicans (at least in part) cost Trent Lott the Majority Leader post not long before Thurmond passed on.

Byrd is okay, though. And Clinton will never be held to account for his lies.

The Real “Bumper Sticker Slogan”

 untitled.jpg

So, I was reading a couple of insane postings from a ranting liberal — more like a “stalker” of Kevin’s at QueerConservative — who was yapping on as most liberals do about their true anti-war position:

 “Where’s Osama?” they scream, they cry, they pretend as if they really care.  We’ll see just how many of them ask that question to Hillary Clinton next year after she wins the Democratic nomination.  After all, if her husband during his eight-year reign as President had done more to detain him when we all knew and suspected Osama to be a deranged lunatic (kind of like how we disarmed and deposed Saddam before he was out of control with power to kill us)  we wouldn’t be in this position.

Truth be told, “Where’s Osama” is the reproductive slogan that gave birth to other idiotic epithets like their constantly telling us that Iraq had nothing to do with the “war on terror.” 

Apparently, their slogans aren’t much effective anymore as Americans are finally starting to catch on to the fact that the Democratic party will never support anything having to do with the defense of this country and its citizens.

The evidence is overwhelming that the Democrats want us to flat-out lose and let terrorists hurt our country. 

If they want us to believe otherwise, they will have to stop their “bumper sticker slogan” of “Where’s Osama?” and actually support just ONE of the many measures mentioned above.

Racist Democrats Play the Race Card AGAIN

So Kathy Griffin and every other liberal who have jumped on this are finally deciding that after all of Condoleezza Rice’s service for this country that she represents how bad the white man is. 

I suppose Kathy Griffin could do a fair comparison if we could find one Democratic administration who would promote a black to a position of higher power.  Let’s see, who has Bush appointed?

  • Clarence Thomas (SCOTUS)
  • Janice Rogers-Brown (Federal Appellate Court Judge – also filibustered by Democrats)
  • Colin Powell (Secretary of State) 1st Black
  • Condoleezza Rice (Secretary of State) 1st Black-Female
  • Judge Reggie Walton (Coincidentally the same black who gave Scooter Libby 30 months in prison and a 250K fine.)

I guess we could compare how the blacks were treated in the Bush administration to such positions of high power, but the last I had heard is that the black female closest to Clinton was his secretary, Betty Curry (pointed out by Ann Coulter of 6/5/2007 H&C).

So, liberals come on!  Write Teddy Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, and Hillary Clinton (not to mention Barrack), and tell them to appoint more blacks to positions of high power.

Until liberals stop projecting so much hate and superiority to blacks by refusing to promote them, I just don’t think we could make a fair comparison.

Now we know why Edwards was offended…

…….after the MSM had characterized Ann Coulter’s wuss remark about him as an “anti-gay slur.” 

Bob Shrum’s book, No Excuses remembers and documents Edwards being uncomfortable with gay people in 1998.

And what’s more – the article above also documents Bill Clinton advocating support of local gay-marriage bans.

More reason for gays to wake up to the “phony” support and love they believe they are getting from the Democratic party.
