Obama … a complete failure!

After massively increasing our country’s debt, President Barack Obama soundly scolds republicans and teaparty members for “causing” the financial crisis and the grid lock that surrounds it. It is so sad it is almost funny … that Obama has presented no plan to Congress to fix the crisis.  His administration has not even approved a budget since he was elected (which is a constitutional requirement if I am not mistaken).  Instead, Obama just points fingers of blame at Republicans and the wealthy; who, by the way, already pay about half the nation’s taxes.

This should not be a surprise to any of us. Obama’s administration is long on setting lofty, impractical goals and placing blame … but short on any real action.

Obama is really good at delegating and setting others up to  take the fall for failed policies.  Just look at the stimulus bill fiasco. Obama made an extravagant show of things, stating much he wanted to spend and how many new jobs he wanted to create. However, he then left things to Pelosi to run … and we see how well that has worked.

Obama took the same approach with the healthcare bill, letting Democrats in Congress come up with a disastrous plan that is already increasing healthcare costs and causing doctors and insurance companies to close up shop and head for the hills.

Remember Obama claiming his budgets would fundamentally shift America from an era of “borrow and spend” to “save and invest.” The truth, however has been somewhat different.  Under Obama, the federal debt has risen from 53 percent of GDP in 2009 to 72 percent this year. 

The truth is Obama is greatly responsible for continuing the very problem he is scolding republicans and teaparty members for. He presents no plan himself, yet he ridicules them for standing fast in their serious efforts at real spending cuts, hard spending caps, and a balanced budget.  It is interesting to note that the Simpson-Boles debt commission, appointed by Obama himself, recommended many of the same steps that are included in the House’s Cut, Cap & Balance plan.   Of course, Obama ignored is own commission as well!

Obama also promised an administration that would govern in a bipartisan manner. After listening to Republican approaches to stimulating the economy, he simply dismissed almost all of them and went right back to the divisiveness of the past, and is still blaming the Bush administration for all his woes three years into his own presidency.

And what a team Obama has assembled! His attorney general, Eric Holder, got real busy prosecuting the very people who, under President Bush, got Obama the information he would later use to single-handedly “get” Usama Bin Laden (it seems the Navy SEALS could never have done it without Obama’s community organizer expertise). 

Now Obama is busy helping cover up the incompetentcy of Eric Holder for such ill-conceived acts as the “fast and furious” ATF scandal, as well as the incompetency of Janet Napolitano and her homeland insecurity team for the criminal neglect of the problems along America’s border with Mexico.  This incompetency is exemplified in so many ways; by TSA agents having to grope babies or search a 93-year-old leukemia victim’s soiled diaper, allowing likely “terrorist candidates” easy access to flights with stolen and expired boarding passes, herding American sheeple through huge scanning machines that are causing cancer in the TSA agents using them, and refusing to let security experts “screen” passengers who are more likely to be terrorists … like Arabic males between the ages of 19 and 35.  When was the last time an Israeli plane was hijacked?

You know … the real and only reason Obama and his left-wing cronies want amnesty passed for illegal immigrants is for the instant huge voting block it will give his campaign in the next election.  I am just saying …

Hey Obama! President Bush is long gone. You are the chief executive officer of this country now, meaning you are responsible for devising and implementing policies. The buck stops with you! 

Hmmm! Guess he can’t hear me.

Obama has played at being a president while enjoying the perks … golf, insanely expensive vacations at tax-payer expense.  He has ignored the responsibilities of the job; no plans, no budgets, no alternatives … just finger pointing; making him a complete failure as a president.

Wow …. Come On TSA… A Nipple Ring!

Diversity: Cause we can’t call it racism anymore!

Track Town

Guess what folks … many of the citizens of Eugene, Oregon (known as Track Town) will undergo “sensitivity and diversity” training to be sure they know how to treat the visiting 1,100 black athletes with sensitivity, awareness, and kindness while hosting the Olympic trials. It seems that because there is only a 2% “African-American” population in Eugene, some folks feel the local police, hospitality workers, and event volunteers are ill-equipped to deal graciously with the influx “African-American” athletes.

Earlier this year, black high school students from Portland’s Roosevelt High School were subjected to racial slurs at a boy’s basketball tournament in Eugene.

The Blacks on Track Team committee hopes to lessen the chances of that or a much lesser offense from happening at the 2008 Olympic Trials to be held in Eugene next summer.

The goal of the 23-member panel is to make sure that hundreds of black athletes and their families feel at home when they visit a city with a black population of less than 2 percent.

The committee is charged with educating the 1,800 volunteers expected to help at the Trials about the need for cultural sensitivity. All volunteers will get some level of diversity training, along with instruction in customer service, The Register-Guard newspaper reported. Several hundred hospitality workers at area hotels, restaurants and retail stores also will be invited to receive the training.

How the Blacks on Track Team got started is not entirely clear. When local representatives pitched Eugene to be the host, USA Track & Field officials expressed concern about Eugene’s racial demographics and whether athletes would feel welcome, said Angel Jones, Eugene city manager pro tem and a member of the committee that lobbied for Eugene’s selection.

The exact nature of the diversity training is still being worked out. But examples could include alerting visiting athletes to the kinds of restaurant foods, hair care salons or religious services that they might be accustomed to frequenting.

Another element of the training, Jones said, will be about not assuming that every unfamiliar black person in Eugene must be an athlete or supporter.

The training will likely be similar to what many corporations provide, said Betty Snowden, a Eugene real estate broker and committee member. Volunteers, for example, might be reminded that certain greetings might be appropriate in some instances between two black people, but less so if made by a white person to a black person.

Snowden said she also has concerns about black people being shadowed by clerks when they visit retail stores.

The Blacks on Track Team has already met with Eugene police to discuss plans for a four-day diversity training that, among other topics, will address how to guard against racial profiling, Fincher said.

How much is this lunacy costing the taxpayers in Eugene, Oregon? This is an “overly sensitive” solution that doesn’t even have a problem to solve! Do “African-American” athletes somehow deserve a “higher or special” level of courtesy because they are black? How about simply treating them with the same courtesy and kindness you would extend any other athlete … Black, White, Chinese, Hispanic, Japanese, Slavic, Brazilian, etc. … just a thought!

Obama’s Newest Pastor Problems

James David Manning

Pastor James David Manning of Atlah Worldwide calls Barack Obama dirty names and insults his own congregation for supporting Obama.

Pastor James David Manning calls Barack Obama all types of dirty names claiming he was “born trash” and insults Obama for having a “whoring” white mother. Pastor Manning even goes as far as insulting his own congregation for supporting Barack Obama, by calling them “maggots” and “despicable”.

It is simply hilarious to hear this raging lunatic rant about Bill Clinton has “done so much” for poor blacks folks. I wonder how much the Clinton political machine is paying him to preach their message?

This racist pastor of Atlah Worldwide, James David Manning, is cut from the same cloth as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright (only in the Clinton camp) and his followers must be out of their minds to sit there in a church … and tolerate the kind of racism and bashing that he subjects them to.

Clinton and Obama Wage War

Hillary Campaigning

The number of days since Hillary Clinton promised she was not interested in attacking Democrats: 139

The number of days that Hillary Clinton has spent attacking Democrats since making that promise: 135

“I’m not interested in attacking my opponents, I’m interested in attacking the problems of America…”
Hillary Clinton, 11/10/07

Do tell!!

Hillary Clinton, in an effort to show her readiness to answer the phone at 3:00 AM, has even told one hell of a whopper, lying about her heroic combat landing in Bosnia while taking fire from snipers. I guess she unfortunately forgot about the witnesses and pictures of the event!

Hillary in Bosnia

Obama’s campaign, meanwhile, has asserted that Clinton has been untruthful about her foreign policy resume, her position on the North American Free Trade Agreement, her involvement in the 1993 passage of the Family and Medical Leave Act, and her views on the renegade primaries in Michigan and Florida.

I must say, that Barack Obama seems, at least to me, to be trying to not stoop to Hillary Clinton’s level in the nasty campaign tactics category! He questions her positions and assertions, but does not seem to resort to playing the smear tactics like Hillary Clinton does

TSA Fears Woman Will Hijack Plane With Nipple Ring!

I am not a big fan of piercings, but this is rediculous. Our Politically Correct TSA agents cannot profile Arabic males between the ages of 19 and 45, but can stop a woman from boarding a plane with nipple piercings? Lets be real clear here … this is stupid!

It seems that in Los Angeles, A Texas woman who was forced to remove a nipple ring with pliers in order to board an airplane has asked for an apology from federal security agents … and a civil rights investigation.

“I wouldn’t wish this experience upon anyone,” stated Mandi Hamlin said at a news conference. “My experience with TSA was a nightmare I had to endure. No one deserves to be treated this way.”

Mandi Hamlin, 37, stated she was preparing to board a flight from Lubbock to Dallas on February 24, when she was scanned by a Transportation Security Administration agent with a hand held scanner, after passing through a larger metal detector without problems. Hamlin stated that a female TSA agent used a hand held detector which beeped when it passed in front of Hamlin’s chest.

Mandi Hamlin

Hamlin said she told the woman she was wearing nipple piercings. The female TSA agent then called over her male colleagues, one of them told Mandi Hamlin that she would have to remove the jewelry. Hamlin said she told the agents she could not remove them and asked whether she could instead display her pierced breasts in private to the female agent. But several other male officers told her she could not board her flight until the jewelry was out.

Why? Was the pierced nipple a threat to national security, world peace, Islamic sensibilities, … or just the other passengers on the plane?

She was escorted behind a curtain and managed to remove one bar-shaped piercing but had trouble with the second, a ring.

“Still crying, she informed the TSA officer that she could not remove it without the help of pliers, and the officer gave a pair to her,” said Hamlin’s attorney, Gloria Allred, reading from a letter she sent Thursday to the director of the TSA’s Office of Civil Rights and Liberties.

Hamlin said she heard male TSA agents snickering as she took out the ring. She was scanned again and was allowed to board even though she still was wearing a belly button ring.

Those TSA agents should be fired! While they were joking and snickering about Mandi Hamlin and her dangerous nipple ring … real terrorists could have strolled right on through the gate!

When will liberals wake up!!
