Obama making Bush mistakes


Who would have thought that one of Obama’s biggest missteps as president would be repeating some of
the bad habits of George W. Bush? No single factor was more instrumental in Obama’s 2008 victory than
his pledge to completely reverse the nation’s course once in the White House.

Whoa, back the truck up.
I'd say the media helping him was a bigger fractor than any pledge he took.
And the economic crash in October is what sealed the deal for victory.

Instead, over the past year, Obama has mimicked some of Bush’s most egregious blunders,
leading to much of the political predicament in which the present decider finds himself today.
Other blunders:

No Chief Economic Spokesperson.
Failure to Integrate Policy, Politics and Communication
Tying his Fate to His Party's Congressional Leadership.

The good news for Obama is that each one of these errors is fixable...

People keep saying that, but Obama continues to fail to change his off-the-cliff course.
Sure he can turns things around - but when's he going to start?

Rumsfeld's Torture Lawsuit 


On Friday, a federal judge refused to dismiss a civil lawsuit accusing Donald Rumsfeld of responsibility
for the alleged torture by U.S. forces of two Americans who worked for an Iraqi contracting firm.

U.S. District Judge Wayne Andersen's ruling did not say the two contractors had proven their claims,
including that they were tortured after reporting alleged illegal activities by their company. But it did say
they had alleged enough specific mistreatment to warrant hearing evidence of exactly what happened.

Andersen said his decision "represents a recognition that federal officials may not strip citizens of well settled
constitutional protections against mistreatment simply because they are located in a tumultuous foreign setting."

Andersen did throw out two of the lawsuit's three counts but gave the torturees the green light to go forward
with a third count alleging they were unconstitutionally tortured under procedures personally approved by Rumsfeld..

Are they going to have Rummy's deposition under oath and on TV like they did Clinton?

Oh, that's right - this isn't about sex so we have no right to know the truth.

Mike Malloy Live

I'm gay and I hate myself
 another Rethug admits the truth


K Roy Ashburn, the California state senator pulled over last week on DUI charges after leaving a gay bar, sets the record gay: he's family.
Ashburn has acknowledged he is gay, saying the public deserved to know what happened that night when he was pulled over.

But one thing he's not flinching on: his voting record.
While voting to affirm Prop 8 and refuse to recognize gay marriages from outside the state, Ashburn says he was only voting
the will of his constituents. Which is the most reasonable excuse he has — but it's still not a rationalization. Because voting for
discrimination (or against its removal) is never okay, no matter what you think voters believe.

This is, however, a very curious situation. Other anti-gay lawmakers exposed as gay have continued to deny they are anything
but straight (see: Larry Craig), which allows them to, hilariously, stand by their anti-gay voting record. But here we have a
state senator saying very clearly that he's one of us, and yet he voted against his own people.

Why can't the closeted Rethugs just leave the issue alone?
The queerest dues are always the ones who denounce gays the loudest.

Palin went to Canada for health care


Sarah Palin (R-Publicity Whore) who has gone to great lengths to hype the supposed dangers of a
big government takeover of American health care -- admitted over the weekend that she used to get
her treatment in Canada's single-payer system.

"We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada," Palin said in her first
Canadian appearance since stepping down as governor of Alaska. "Isn't that ironic?"

The irony, one guesses, is that Palin now views Canada's health care system as revolting: with its
government-run administration and 'death-panel'-like rationing. Clearly, however, she and her family
once found it more alluring than, at the very least, the coverage available in rural Alaska

I guess there was no room to write,
"America has the best health care system  in the whole world,"
on the palm of her hand

"I am disheartened with the lack of audacity of the Obama Administration. I am sickened by the
  Democrats in Congress who vote against their constituents’ wishes. Yes, the Dems are probably
  better than the GOP, but not by much. At least I could complain about the GOP while they were in
  power. But with the Dems having 59 votes in the Senate, who do I complain to now?"

Subject: Whore ABC News faked runaway Toyota footage



ABC felt they could pull a fast one on the audience and used some B-roll in the report showing
the tachometer needle sweeping rapidly from near idle to over 6,000 rpm. That clip was injected at
the precise moment when David Gilbert triggered his simulated sudden acceleration. As you can see
from the screen cap above, the shot of the tachometer shows the warning lights for the parking brake on,
the doors open and the transmission indicator in park.

ha ha

It's another runaway Toyota, in park, with the doors wide open.

America's whore media has chosen to bring down Toyota.

Little girl beat up Rove


According to his new memoir, a 9-year-old Rove affixed a Nixon sticker to his bicycle,
prompting a leftist girl to give him a bloody nose. We must find this girl and make her into a folk hero.

Fascinating that Rove connects his political bloodlust to this event, in the manner of a Freudian analyst
picking apart a grown man's first sexual experience. Because in the same Deseret article, Rove explains how
he became president of his high school class: He recruited "an incredibly attractive senior girl" to chair his campaign
and "made my entrance into the auditorium in a Volkswagen Bug filled with incredibly attractive girls. Two girls on
each arm delivered me to the podium." Is it possible that a generation of dirty GOP tactics and George W. Bush's
entire catastrophic career are all compensation for The Little Girl Who Got Away?...

The little girl knew not what she did, that her fists would launch a thousand campaigns and a war in Iraq.
All she knew was that Karl Rove was a snot-nosed punk and she could take him down with one hand tied
behind her pigtails. And for that, we salute her.

Rove was always a little punk but he was never challenged.
I don't know much about Texas politics, but McCain failed to challenge Rove in 2000,
then Gore went to sleep in the general election and Kerry slept thru 2004.

How about Glenn Beck raping that woman in 1990?

According to a recently discovered Durham County Police report, Glenn Beck raped a woman in 1990.
Calm down!!
Chances are the suspect in the case is just someone who shares the same name as the FoxNews show host.

Despite the great likelihood of this being a simple mix up of names -  there are some eerie coincidences.
For starters, the crime remains unsolved.  During the manhunt reports were leaked stating that the rapist,
not the victim, cried throughout the encounter. This led to the local Durham media giving the wanted
suspect the nickname – “Crying Rapist.”

VA. A.G. hates queer folk


Virginia's gay-bashing Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II has urged the state's public colleges and universities
to rescind policies that ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, arguing in a letter sent to each school
that their boards of visitors had no legal authority to adopt such statements.

In his most aggressive initiative on conservative social issues since taking office in January, Cuccinelli (R-Pig) wrote in
the letter sent Thursday that only the General Assembly can extend legal protections to gay state employees, students
and others -- a move the legislature has repeatedly declined to take as recently as this week...

"It is my advice that the law and public policy of the Commonwealth of Virginia prohibit a college or university from
including 'sexual orientation,' 'gender identity,' 'gender expression,' or like classification as a protected class within its
non-discrimination policy absent specific authorization from the General Assembly," he wrote in the letter.

Colleges that have included such language in policies that govern university hiring and admissions -- which include all
of Virginia's largest schools -- have done so "without proper authority" and should "take appropriate actions to bring
their policies in conformance with the law and public policy of Virginia," Cuccinelli wrote.

Wouldn't Thomas Jefferson be proud that his home state, in 2010, was turning into the Salem witch hunts of 1692?

Subject: what Arianna said

"The teabaggers and Michael Moore
  are both angry about the same thing."
   -- Arianna

Uh, no.  Michael Moore isn't upset that the president is BLACK.  He doesn't want to see Obama's birth certificate.
He doesn't think Obama is a communist, a socialist, a fascist, the Joker, the Antichrist, or a Kenyan.  He doesn't
believe that Obama's singular goal in life is to kill as many unborn babies as he possibly can, or to let the 'terrorist' win.

Michael Moore doesn't empathize with the guy who flew a plane into to a building to bag an IRS agent.  He didn't go out
and buy a closet full of guns ahead of Obama's confiscation edict.  He doesn't believe that concentration camps are being
erected out--as we speak-- to detain all conservatives.  He doesn't claim that ALL taxes are EVIL.

Arianna, you ignorant slut!

Democrats Unwilling To Fight
 That's not news - if they fought - that would be news


Advocates of legal services for the poor are up in arms over the nomination of Sharon Browne to the board
of directors of the Legal Services Corporation, the federal agency that oversees federal aid to such programs

A Senate panel will likely approve the Republican-chosen nominee on Wednesday as part of a package that
includes five other nominees supported by Democrats. Outside groups say Democrats are unwilling to try to
separate Browne from the package for an up-or-down vote.

Citing her track record as a principal at the conservative Pacific Legal Foundation, Browne's critics say she's
unfit for the job because she has directly opposed funding for legal services agencies.

"Ms. Browne should not be placed in a position to help determine the future of legal services for poor Americans,"
says a letter sent by the Alliance for Justice, a coalition of liberal groups, to members of the Senate committee that
will vote on Browne's nomination Wednesday. The letter was signed by more than 70 fair-housing and civil rights advocates.

"She and the Pacific Legal Foundation ("PLF"), her employer, have engaged in litigation aimed at defunding
those very services and legal efforts opposing the principle of equal justice -- the core of LSC's mission. "

And the American Bar Association says Browne is not qualified for the job.

Anyone else tired of the GOP having the veto power over every appointment Obama makes
and every hire Obama makes, but the Democrats are always powerless when the reverse happens?

Hell, f-ing Glenn Beck has veto power over Obama's hires
but we're forced to accept a Hitlerette when we control everything?

Subject: confusing Palin quote

Hi Bart,

Here's a quote from our good friend Sarah Failin Palin from her visit to Ohio
(ashamed of my state...we have Boehner to repent for) about some Right to Life speech crap.

"What I scribbled on the palm of my hand tonight too -- it was the dollar sign, and I'm -- we're going to
talk about the practical needs too for this cause, and this will remind me to -- because I didn't write it in
my speech, I have to ad lib that part, so to remind me," she said.

I'll give you a million dollars if you can decipher that shit!!

Your fan,

p.s.  The latest explanation as to why Failin Palin had to write her core beliefs in her hands
        to remind her of them is quoted in the article below.  She says it's because God use to
        write notes in His hands, too; so she does it. can't make this crap up.

Oceans are losing oxygen
 Inhofe says, "Not a problem."


Lower levels of oxygen in the Earth's oceans, particularly off our Pacific Northwest coast,
could be another sign of fundamental changes linked to global climate change, scientists say.

They warn that the oceans' complex undersea ecosystems and fragile food chains could be disrupted.

In some spots off Washington state and Oregon , the almost complete absence of oxygen has left piles
of Dungeness crab carcasses littering the ocean floor, killed off 25-year-old sea stars, crippled colonies
of sea anemones and produced mats of potentially noxious bacteria that thrive in such conditions.

Areas low oxygen, have long existed in the deep ocean  but these areas appear to be spreading,
covering more square miles, creeping toward the surface and in some places, such as the Pacific Northwest,
encroaching on the continental shelf within sight of the coastline.

"The depletion of oxygen levels in all three oceans is striking," said Gregory Johnson , a pointy-headed
elisist oceanographer with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Seattle .
