MMA Rumors

Does Obama Even Want to Win?


Increasingly, senior administration officials shrug when you mention the November mid-term elections.
"We did all we could," and "it's not our fault" is the line; their point being that if jobs (miraculously at this point)
come back quickly, the Democrats have a fighting chance -- but not otherwise.

The inner team apparently thinks that 2012 will go just fine -- as long as unemployment is down around 6 percent.
And, they reason, the people who lose their seats this November won't be around to complain.


The Obama team seems to feel that their base has nowhere else to go.
Jimmy Carter had the same sort of idea.

Celebrity Teabaggers


Jon Voight 
Today, he busies himself headlining tea party rallies and accusing Obama of creating a socialist state on Fox News.

Ted Nugent
Nugent can be heard bashing everything from feminism to animal rights. 
He called for Obama to be jailed because he's a communist.

Chuck Norris 
Norris vocally advocated California's anti-gay marriage Proposition 8 
and writes regularly for the right-wing Web site WorldNetDaily

Dennis Miller 
Once cool, Miller has redefined himself as a conservative commentator. He's now a regular 
on "The O'Reilly Factor" and hosts his own right-wing radio show.

Cliff Claven (John Ratzenberger) 
Ratzenberger campaigned for John McCain in 2008, has called Obama's healthcare plan "socialism," 
and raised money for Tim Pawlenty. He claims to be considering a U.S. Senate bid from Connecticut in 2012.

Subject: Toyota recall question

Hey Bart,

My car is a 1997 so I may be unaware of features on new cars, but why
don't people whose cars are running amok just put them in neutral?

Is there some kind of "safety" device preventing this?
All cars have rev limiters now so the engine won't blow up.

I know people panic and stop thinking but I haven't heard this mentioned
in any news about the recall so I wonder if I'm fantasizing again.
Thanks again for all you do!

I think early on, before people were talking about it, it was easy to panic
but after all the publicity, who could forget to shift into Neutral if it happens?

Why can't Toyota buy a million gas pedals from GM or Honda and modify them?

How long does it take an expert to identify the cause of a crash?

Put another way, why is the government dragging their feet instead of providing answers?

Sorry Rove, Bush Lied About Iraq
 by Robert Parry


Karl Rove claims “one of the biggest mistakes” of Bush's presidency was not aggressively challenging critics who 
charged that Bush “lied” about the reasons for the Iraq War, an accusation that Rove insists was false and unfair.

But the problem with Rove’s account is that not only did Bush oversee the twisting of intelligence to justify invading
Iraq but he subsequently lied – and lied repeatedly – about how Iraq had responded to UN inspection demands.

So, while it may be impossible to say for certain what Bush believed about Iraq possessing WMDs, it can’t be 
argued that Bush didn’t know that Iraq declared that it had destroyed its WMD stockpiles and let U.N. inspectors in 
to see for themselves in the months before the invasion.

They will continue to tell lies as long as nobody refutes them.

Subject: 'Now or never' by Dick Polman

Bartcop - Count Dick Polman, a guy who has a pretty good idea of what's what, 
among the supporters of "do-something" Democrats. To wit:

It's crunch time for President Obama and the congressional Democrats. 
The political stakes are clear. If they want to ensure that they will be slaughtered 
in the November congressional elections, all they need to do, in the weeks ahead, 
is screw up their golden opportunity to pass health care reform.    Link

I remember 1993 - the Democrats had a similar choice:
Stand with your president or lose every f-ing thing.

They chose to lose everything. They could've had 
health care and their jobs, but they choose to give both up.

How did I get stuck in a party of crybaby losers?

Subject: How to Tell a Republican from a Libertarian 

Solutions in politics should be derived from answering the fundamental question:

What should the purpose of government be? 

I asked about 50 people (mostly college graduates and all Republicans) that question, 
and not a single one could answer.  Try it, it’s amazing.  You can just smell the ozone as their two wits short out.

Now, if they’re actually Libertarians, they’ll eventually say something like,
“Government ought to just provide defense and infrastructure”, which really means
“Leave business alone to loot, pollute, and steal”.

What the Constitution (supposedly sacred to the Right) says is: "We the people of the United States, 
(1) in Order to form a more perfect Union, (2) establish Justice, (3) insure domestic Tranquility, 
(4) provide for the common Defense, (5) promote the general Welfare, and (6) secure the Blessings 
of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity..."  (Numeration my addition)

That's not a big stretch from my Leftist answer to my question: 
A government ought to provide for the welfare, health, safety, and education of its citizens.
 Beat Raven

I agree.

"Government" is a set of rules to keep people safe and keep things moving.
The weak must be.protected from the GOP jackals that prey on them.

Subject: the good news about Obama and Health Care

Hi Bart, 

For over 50 years Democrats have been trying to reform health care, and have made incremental gains along the way 
with Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP and Cobra. The awesome forces against reform have succeeded in slowing down or 
stopping change for decades and President Obama's strategy has been to incorporate all grievances in order to move 
something, anything forward, thus removing those objections from the debate. It has worked and all they have left is 
"keep your socialist hands off my Medicare" and you see how that only resonates with Tea Baggers now. 

That is not weak, that is savvy and pragmatic because he knows if he went "all in" for single payer, as he has stated 
publicly by the way, it would give too much ammunition to those powers, and confuse the ignorant public ultimately 
stifling any reform. For the first time, it will be law and accepted that people are due health care and deserve assistance. 

No pre-existing conditions, no rescissions, government payment assistance, no lifetime caps, and scores of changes 
towards preventative measures. These gains should not be underestimated. Health care reform is about to pass, 
and it will continue to evolve because including the unnecessary health insurance companies cannot be sustained. 

However they exist now with tons of money and are a force to be reckoned with, like it or not, and President Obama 
understands this. When health care reform passes, which it will after improvements to the Senate bill, President Obama 
will have achieved one of the greatest political successes in our Democratic party's and nation's history . It will not be 
the end, but another step in the inevitable move towards single-payer. We need this, and President Obama and the 
Democratic controlled Congress are getting it done, warts and all. We need to keep the pressure on until the bill is 
signed into law, of course, but please give credit where it is due. President Obama is winning and it will happen. 

That is worth mighty praise and support because you of all people know what he is up against. 
This is gigantic and he deserves praise and encouragement. On this issue Bart, please get behind him 
and acknowledge this success. 
Thank you,
 Mean Mr. Mustard - 97504

I hope Obama gets something passed to avoid the crippling of his presidency.
I also hope we actually get some positive health care changes before too long,
but we just watched a year-long class on how not to negotiate.

The Republicans have many tricks but one that works great for them is their reply to 
a Democratic proposal - when a GOP senator says, "That's dead - it's a non-starter."

The proper answer to that is, "Fuck you, nothing's over until WE say so because WE're in power."

But no.  That would be impolite.

Democrats reply, "So, what ARE you willing to let us pass?" which proved to everyone watching that 
Democrats are the party of pushovers and the Rethugs have learned to weild power when they have none.

Last thing?
Mustard, my reply to you was rejected by your server.
I have something for you.

Phony indignation over Charlie Rangel
 by Joe Conason


Now that Charlie Rangel has relinquished his coveted chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee 
and may be facing worse days ahead, his humiliation stands as a mark of ethical consistency for liberals and Democrats. 
A Korean War hero and a symbol of African-American advancement, the likeable Harlem pol was brought to book not 
by the Republicans who are celebrating, but chiefly by the "liberal" New York Times and the Democrats on the House 
Ethics Committee who voted to reprimand him.

Yet as the Republicans and their media epigones celebrate Rangel’s downfall, the contrast with their own typical tolerance 
of corruption in their own ranks is instructive. To draw political comparisons between the cases of Rangel and Tom DeLay,
as some mainstream pundits and conservative commentators do, is glib and fatuous if not simply dishonest. 

None of the GOP pet media outlets, such as the Washington Times, the Weekly Standard or Fox News Channel, has ever 
initiated an ethics investigation of a Republican. Instead, these outfits habitually devote their efforts to protecting Republicans, 
no matter how crooked. Indeed, they tend scream"liberal bias" whenever the paper criticizes or investigates a Republican.

 Tulsa World Concert Review

 Danny Detroit

 Hell no, I didn't go.
 Sleepy guitar players put me to f-ing sleep.

 We saw Clapton in...maybe ..1978, and he was boredom-inducing then.

 Wiseguy saw this recent show - said Clapton's best song was "Cocaine."
 Gosh, and I missed that?

 And he did "Layla" unplugged - his best song by far  ...unplugged.
 How old is Clapton, about 85?

 The Tulsa World Review said.
“Layla” was spellbinding in its simplicity."

Clapton took the most exciting song of his entire career and reduced it to a smarmy chick-song
 that no man in his right f-ing mind would ever pay to see unless he was mega-whipped.

Big Dog backs backstabber Blanche


In a boost to backstabber Blanche Lincoln — and a blow to primary challenger Bill Halter —
Bill Clinton is throwing his support to the backstabber, his spokesman confirmed.

Halter’s entry into the race had kicked off a round of speculation about who Clinton would endorse,
given that he hails from the state and remains very popular with Dem primary voters. If Clinton had
remained neutral it would have been a big boost to Halter.

I wonder why he's doing that?

Is she an old friend who supported Bill when he didn't have many friends?
Maybe Obama asked Clinton to help the backstabber - because that's how Obama is?

You'd think Clinton would want Obama's health care initiative to pass,
so why is he backing someone who'll do anything to stop reform?

All I'm asking for is a sliver of proof before we hang them.
What if Jimmy the Marin County Shark is right?

What if all this hysteria is just the oil companies trying to discredit hybrid technology?

Did you see Nissan is selling a 100% electric car?  With ZERO emissions?

The oil bastards are going out of business.

Ten years ago, Eastman Kodak was the largest buyer of silver in the world because
silver is used to turn a film negative into a photograph - but we don't do that anymore.
We take digital pictures so Kodak no longer buys huge amounts of silver.

Same for the oil bastards that killed 5,000 of our soldiers.
This Nissan Leaf and all the cars behind it will put the oil bastards out of business.

BTW, have you heard the rumors?
The Nissan Leaf chokes babies who ride in it - so DON'T BUY THIS CAR!!!
Nissan wants to choke your babies - don't let them!!!

How dangerous is the Nissan Leaf?
Congress will hold tearful hearings next week!!

Subject: Gore chose to lay down...

I agree Gore could have and should have fought back!  But I do not agree
that by doing so he would have prevented the Bush Gang’s theft of his presidency.

First of all the Supreme Court was not about to let Gore win.
Poppy-and-Grecian Man’s own “Gang of Five” ensured they wouldn’t
(which is when I fell for ‘BartCop’ btw.  Remember the Clown pics, I never laughed so hard!)…

The majority of Governorship’s in the United States at the time were held by Republicans.
If the Supreme Court had stayed out of it and the letter of the Twelfth Amendment had been followed
we would have seen a legislative conference by the states to elect a President:

 " choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state
  having one vote…and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice”

And because the States can “prescribe the manner” in which these representatives are chosen the governors
of each state would simply appoint a like-minded rep to vote their way, which in this case woulda been for Dumb-ya.

That’s why I blame Nader and not (necessarily) Gore.
If Nader hadn’t worked so hard to split the Democratic vote in “battleground” states like Florida
that vote would have easily gone to Gore with no phony “500-vote” majority cooked up by Harris and Jebblo.

Fer Ser though, if I were Al Gore I would have stood up to my last breath instead of slinking away.
He could have won in ’04, maybe even ’08…he really was the best man for the job, but then I guess
you have to have a spine first.
 John C

The way I see it, Gore told all the Democrats to stay away from Florida
but the GOP was aggressive, as always, and they flew protesters in.


All America saw on their TVs was "the populace" revolting because Bush "got robbed."

Politics is like poker - when you fold, you can't win.

"Christians' terrorizing Amarillo


An evangelical Christian hate group called "Repent Amarillo" is reportedly terrorizing the town of Amarillo, Texas. 
Repent fashions itself as a sort of militia and targets a wide range of community members they deem offensive to their theology: 
gays, liberal Christians, Muslims, environmentalists, breast cancer events that do not highlight abortion, Halloween, 
"spring break events", and pornography shops. On its website, Repent has posted a "Warfare Map" of its enemies in town.

Calling Repent an "American Taliban", blogger Charles Johnson notes that the group's moniker "Army of God" is a rough 
translation of "Hezbollah." Led by a man named David Grisham, a security guard at a nuclear-bomb facility called Pantex, 
Repent first gained media attention in Texas following a campaign to boycott Houston for electing a gay mayor. 
The group, which is associated with Raven Ministries, collaborates with other Christian groups as well as forced
pregnancy advocacy associations like 'Bound 4 Life.'

Why don't we ever heard stopries about these handjobs 
running into someone who doesn't want to be screwed with?
