Obama’s Cheney Dilemma


Dick Cheney has been widely portrayed as a creature of the dark side, a monstrous figure who trampled 
on the Constitution to wage war against all foes, real and imagined. Barack Obama was elected partly to 
cleanse the temple of the Bush-Cheney stain, and in his campaign speeches he promised to reverse 
Cheney's efforts to seize power for the White House in the war on terror...

Obama will discover, if he hasn't already, that presidents live in a gray area. They have great powers, 
but they have to be careful about how and when they use them. There is an executive order banning 
the president from assassinating political leaders abroad. But because it's an executive order - not a 
congressionally passed law - the president can change it. Indeed, Clinton approved plans and efforts 
to kill Osama bin Laden at his terror training camp in Afghanistan before 9/11.

The whore American press broadcasts that Clinton was offered bin Laden and refused.
How did a sliver of truth make it into the mainstream whore media?

I think Obama will take whatever action against terrorists he feels is necessary, including dirt naps.
The difference is he won't be masturbating to the snuff films again and again.

What I would like to see Obama do is abuse his authority like Bush & Dracula did, but he won't.
In a fair world (why bother?) he would give the GOP sons of bitches eight years of spying and
reading their mail and listening to their phone calls etc. to demonstrate why that's a bad thing.

If I was president I'd run that down their throats as long as I could but I'd sign a law up-front
that says the abuse stops the day Obama leaves the White House. 

I wish Obama had more of a mean streak.
I wish he had more of a temper, I wish he was more petty - but he's not.

Bush - a Great President


I have put together my own list of talking points, which should convince anyone why Bush 
belongs on Mount Rushmore, along with Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and the other guy.

After Katrina, President Bush kept our cities safe. In the three years and a half years since 
Katrina not a single American city has been destroyed or partially destroyed.

After Iraq and Afghanistan took a turn for the worse, Bush kept us from losing any wars.

After the recent stock market crash there have been no further crashes.

After the District Attorney firing scandal, the outing of Valerie Plame and other scandals, 
President Bush restored integrity to government.

Torture Quotes

"We’re still evaluating how we’re going to approach the whole issue of interrogations, detentions, 
  and so forth. And obviously we’re going to be looking at past practices and I don’t believe that 
  anybody is above the law. On the other hand, I also have a belief that we need to look forward 
  as opposed to looking backwards...My orientation is going to be moving foward." 
      --  Obama     Link

"Everything that is coming out of the Congress and the Obama administration is very worrisome. 
It’s not the type of stuff that would be said if you were seriously going to pursue prosecution. 
But they are insane to try to dodge this issue. Because if we don’t investigate this administration 
for war crimes and illegality - particularly war crimes - someone else might. The fact is that the 
rest of the world sees these as war crimes." 
     --  Jonathan Turley,    Link

 I'm going to say it again - we have no right to ask Obama to spend his presidency going after the Bush bastards.
 Nobody wants them held accountable more than me, but that job belonged to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid
 and Mr Rubber Stamp himself, Patrick Leahy, who showed what a coward he was by "responding like a 
 gentleman" when Cheney told him "Go fuck yourself."

 When Leahy backed down from that, he was telling Cheney that congress was his bitch
 and he could do whatever he wanted, he could break any crimes he wanted, etc.

 If Pelosi, Reid and Leahy want to go after the Bush bastards now - fine - but it's years too late.
 Pelosi, Reid and Leahy rewote the constitution to say the president and the VP are above the law.

 If the Democrats weren't such cowards they'd make Pelosi, Reid and Leahy pay a price 
 for closing their eyes while the Bush bastards raped the world.

"I think Eric Holder will have some problems. He has not been able to stand up to 
his bosses in the past, President Clinton when he wanted to do pardons that I think 
Holder must have realized were big mistakes but he facilitated. And he’s also made 
some very unfortunate statements about our interrogation of prisoners, terrorists, 
and other things that lead me to believe that he is not going to be supportive of the 
Patriot Act, the FISA law, and others. And if he can’t be supportive of those laws, 
then he shouldn’t be Attorney General."

Obama Scaling Back Promises


Obama said reviving the U.S. economy will require scaling back on his campaign promises 
and personal sacrifice from all Americans.

“I want to be realistic here, not everything that we talked about during the campaign are we going to 
be able to do on the pace we had hoped,” Obama said on ABC’s “This Whore” with Judas Maximus. 
“Everybody’s going to have to give.”

I'm sure the hard Left will rape him over the coals for that - but it's a different world now.
The Left will say "He's just like the others," but I'm going to give him a break because 
the Bush bastards stole an extra five trillion in October and now we're ten trillion dollars in debt.

Obama also said in the interview recorded yesterday that he wants stricter guidelines and 
greater transparency in spending the remaining $350 billion in the Troubled Asset Relief Program. 

I have a question:
The Bush bastards say they can't account for the missing billions from TARP, but isn't that 
an admission that they've not been able to track the terrorist's money all these years?

Doesn't that remove the excuse for why they're spying on us?

If they can't track money from the US Treasury, how can they make us believe
they can track money from the Saudis to al Qaeda?

Mere Presidents
 by Piggy Noonan


This week we saw the past four presidents standing in the Oval Office for a photo-op. 
As you looked at the pictures afterward you had to think: How flawed were they? How many were a success?

Look at Piggy Noonan - pretending all presidents fuck up like Der Fuhrer.

Did you notice how they all leaned away from Jimmy Carter, the official Cootieman of former presidents? 
It was like high-school students to the new girl: "You can't sit here, we're the Most Popular table."

Carter is seen as a loser because the Democrats piss on their heroes.
Carter inherited an economic mess from Nixon-Ford, but they talk about it like it was his doing.
The inflation mess continued until Reagan crashed the economy in 1982.

Carter's other problem was that he valued the lives of those hostages in Iran.

The Bush bastards contacted the terrorists and promised them Stinger missles if they would
keep the hostages until after the 1980 election.  Meanwhile, Reagan's two faces were promising
that we wouldn't have to put up with hostage-taking because he'd go all "John Wayne" on them.

But after promising to stand up to the terrorists, Reagan rewarded them again and again,
but history doesn't tell that story because the Democrats are afraid to list the goddamn facts.

When Reagan died, Democrats lined up around the block to talk about what a great man he was.
If he was so great, why do they have to hide his presidential papers behind locked doors?

...and how did I get stuck in a party of cowardly losers?

If you haven't heard, Obama is in the next
issue of Spiderman comics - out Wednesday.

Backstabbing Democrats


The hard sell that Obama put on last week went beyond the normal political smooth-talking that 
presidents use to promote their legislative agenda, and crossed over into something a bit more urgent.

But the main target of his blitz isn't voters or Republicans.  The problem is backstabbing Democrats, 
who with their expanded majorities were supposed to make it easy for Obama's agenda to cruise through 
Congress, started objecting to the stimulus plan as soon as details leaked into the press.

The objections were pretty basic: Obama wanted to spend too much on tax cuts, and not enough 
on infrastructure. They were mildly phrased, but there was no question that Obama and his aides would 
have some work to do to push the stimulus plan into law. (They already had to scrap their hope of having 
the bill ready for Obama to sign on Jan. 20, which turned out to be impossible, and are now aiming for 
mid-February, before the first recess of the year.

The tax cuts got the GOP on board, but leave it to the Democrats to fuck this up.

Obama came forth with a plan to run for president and he succeeded, but now that 
he's there, every punk Democrat in Congress thinks they should make the decisions.

Every Democrat who stands in the way should be put in front of a live camera crew 
to answer the question, "If you know better, why didn't you run for president 
so the voters could judge the validity of your ideas against Obama's?"

 Subject: WMDs

Having or not having WMDs is and was irrelevant.
Even a preemptive war demands an imminent threat.

You don't need to be an expert to know that Iraq,
even with a few nukes, was not a real threat to the USA.
 Don Z

Did you mean to write that?

"Iraq, even with a few nukes, was not a real threat to the USA."

IF Iraq had a "few nukes" all they've have to master is that
difficult "boat technology" and they could wipe out New York,
Baltimore, Miami, Boston, Washington DC and Philadelphia.

In 2002, the CIA said Saddam had WMDs and flying drones.
Tony Blair said we could be hit in as little as 45 minutes.

That turned out not to be the case, but aren't we all angry with Bush
for ignoring the warning that said "Osama is determined to strike?"
But the senate was supposed to ignore the warnings they were given?

I'm not willing to re-argue that whole point.
We went over it hundreds of times when it was fresh, but if you think
"a few nukes" is not a real threat, I'm glad you're not our Sec of Defense.

Bush's Better World
 by one crazy Peter Brookes


If you asked Americans to list Bush's foreign policy and national security accomplishments, 
you'd likely get some laughs - surely some snarky comments. Perhaps, at best, a short list.

But, in truth, there are a number of great successes. So as the Bush administration gets ready 
to exit the national and world stage in the coming days, it's time to give credit where credit's due.
It's not just by chance that there hasn't been another terrorist strike here at home since 9-11. 

This handjob accidentally said something intelligent - there've been no further attacks - but why?
What Bush policies prevent al Qaeda sympathizers from driving a gasoline truck into an American school?
They can't answer that question and our whore press refuses to ask it.

The truth is Al Qaeda has CHOSEN not to attack us, which makes sane people ask, "Why?"
They're willing to die to hurt Americans, yet they've CHOSEN not to hurt us? As far as we know, 
Al Qaeda had less than 100 members on 9-11, but by all accounts they have tens of thousands of 
members now and maybe hundreds of thousands of sympathizers - so what's holding them back?

Bush policies?
That's too stupid to even consider.

I say a deal was made - nothing else can explain their refusal to murder more Americans.
I think Bush promised Osama that he could remain free as long as he didn't acttack us here.

The Bush bastards have dealt with the most evil bastards in history, from Hitler to Noriega
to Hezzbollah to Ghadafy so why would they refuse to deal with Osama?

Since 2001, Bush has thwarted a number of plots, including conspiracies to blow up airplanes 
and fuel farms, assault an army base, and attack LA and Chicago skyscrapers - and surely others.

Oh please - you believe that horseshit because Bush said so? 

How much more discredited does a world-class murderer, invader, kidnapper, torturer, rapist 
have to be before you refuse to accept his every word as gospel?

 Subject: Did Bush accomplish anything good?

People are asking if Bush accomplished anything good during his presidency. 
The answer is - Yes! 
One thing he did was that he utterly destroyed the Republican Party. 

All the myths that Republicans are fiscal conservatives are gone. 
The idea that Republicans are better for the economy proved wrong. 
Trickle down economics and tax cuts for the rich completely discredited. 
Privatizing Social Security is now a joke. 

We will have to see if the price to destroy the Republicans was worth the price 
America has paid to learn the hard way. But at least we can finally say that 
Republican ideas are an utter failure and hopefully we will never go back there again.

Land mines ahead for Hillary
 by the whores at The Politico


Hillary Clinton, ever the preparation junkie, is cramming for Tuesday’s confirmation hearing — intent on 
downplaying old disagreements with Obama and parrying questions about Bill's overseas entanglements.

Pure horseshit.
Hillary has nothing to hide and neither does her husband.
The whore press (as always) is trying to create drama where there is none.

Barring a bombshell revelation, all sides expect Clinton to be speedily confirmed as secretary of state. 
But her rendezvous with the Foreign Relations Committee still offers its share of potential land mines.

Sure, in the same way a trip to the fridge contains the "potential danger" of tripping over a cat.
America's whore press earns their slimy mantle of shame everyday.

Nobody’s fonder of huddling secretly with a close-knit, tight-lipped clutch of advisers than Hillary. 

Yeah, and every other politician wants their dirty laundry on the evening news.
If I had the "credibility" of The Politico I'd stick my head in the oven.

And she’s been huddling plenty in recent days, gaming out defenses to possible attacks against 
her husband while synchronizing her policy positions with Obama to avoid embarrassing public 
disagreements on Iraq, Iran and Israel. 

Horseshit - absolutely pure.
No two people on the planet have the exact same politics, not even Barack and Michelle.
But the whores at The Politico have nothing else to write about, so they lazily fall back
into cheap shots at the Clintons because a big segment of America lives for that shit.

Dems boost wilderness protection


In a rare Sunday session, the Senate advanced legislation that would set aside more than 
2 million acres in nine states as wilderness. Majority Democrats assembled more than enough 
votes to overcome GOP stalling tactics in an early showdown for the new Congress.

Republicans complained that Democrats did not allow amendments on the massive bill, 
which calls for the largest expansion of wilderness protection in 25 years. But Harry Reid, (D-Wimp), 
and other Democrats said the bill — a holdover from last year — was carefully written 
and included measures sponsored by both Republicans and Democrats.

Bush killed 2.6M jobs just in 2008
 Tax cuts for the super-rich caused this


Bush killed 524,000 jobs in December, reflecting a pervasive fear among employers that
if they fail to shed workers quickly they may go under in the worst recession since the 1930s.

Unemployment jumped to a 16-year-high (GHW Bush) of 7.2 percent. The growing army of
the unemployed, at 11.1 million, is nearly 50 percent bigger than at the start of the recession a year ago.
The total number of jobs lost in the recession now totals 2.59 million.

Remember when Clinton created 24 million jobs?
That's the difference between Democrats and Republicans.
That's what happens when you help the middle class and not the super-rich.

If only we could get a Democrat to list the goddamn facts - but nooooooo.
The GOP stands for economic ruin but the Democrats refuse to mention it.

The Musical Broomstick
How my good friend Les Paul changed music forever


He had a breakthrough when he tried the most dense piece of material he could find, a piece of railtrack,
attaching it to a guitar string and a telephone receiver wired up to a radio. "It sounded great! I ran to my
Mum and shouted 'I've got the answer!' And she replied: 'Did you ever see a cowboy on a horse playing
a railroad track?' So that put that idea right out of the window."

It took many more years of tinkering before he made his first solid-wood guitar, in 1941; he had to wait
another 10 years before Gibson finally embraced the idea, in 1951. "The electric guitar was laughed at!
They called me the character with the broomstick with pick-ups on it. It was terrible. Before we came
along the guitar was an apologetic wimp - the weakest, most unimportant guy in the band. As soon as
we put a pick-up on him, and a volume control, he became the king."
