All day today, Republicans from John Boehner to Sarah Palin have gone on a prebuttal campaign with the intent of criticizing President Obama for taking credit for the end of the Iraq war. The problem is that Obama’s actual speech gave George W. Bush and the troops credit, and by doing so, he outsmarted Palin and the GOP.
Well, do you remember that crazy woman who spent all of the money on clothes during the 2008 campaign and didn’t know what job she was running for and couldn’t answer any questions so she shut down the press until they would show “deference” to her? Yeah, Sarah Palin. That’s the one. Well, my friends……….It’s looking like she’s going to run for President of our great country.
A Public Policy Polling survey done of Alaskan voters in the Republican senatorial primaries, where Joe Miller appears to be winning in a surprising upset over incumbent Lisa Murkowski reveals that 59% percent of Alaskan voters weren’t moved by Palin’s endorsement.
We all know that logic isn’t a strong suit for Glenn Beck, but on his radio show today while trying to defend Mitch McConnell’s pandering to the Obama is a Muslim movement, Beck managed to claim that Barack Obama is the biggest birther of all, “You know who the biggest birther is? Barack Obama.”
It’s that time again. House Min. Leader John Boehner (R-OH) is going to address us again. You know, preparing for the GOP take-over this fall, so listen up people. Today’s talk is what we call a preemptive strike against any possible notion that Americans might be pleased with Obama for a moment over his successful draw down in Iraq. Boehner will give us his Republican Plan (fairy tale) about foreign relations! In this story, all Democrats including your President are fools and morons.
Convinced that only conservatives have a right to rule, and that they are not a defeated political party but the victims of an unlawful usurpation, a government in exile, the Republicans have declared war on America and will go to any lengths to return to power.
Do you remember when Glenn Beck promised a miracle from God at his 8-28 rally? On his Fox News program today Beck unveiled the power of the Lord through flying geese. A flyover by some geese is what Beck is citing as his miracle. Beck called it “God’s flyover.”
It seems that Sarah Palin has enlisted some help in her war against Medicare, as yesterday on Face The Nation, her handpicked Alaska US Senate candidate Joe Miller told the nation that Medicare is unconstitutional, thus furthering Palin’s un-Mama Grizzly like jihad against Medicare, and her advocacy of a policy that killed 254 Alaskans while she was governor.
What are we to do with groups like the Westboro Baptist Church, which has been designated a hate group by both the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center, and who seem intent on testing the limits of free speech? Should we engage, mock, or ignore them?
President Obama spoke today at Xavier University in New Orleans to mark the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. While much of his speech was rightly dedicated to the rebirth rebuilding, and revival of New Orleans, Obama took a shot at the Bush administration, “I am proud that my FEMA Director, Craig Fugate, has 25 years of experience in disaster management in Florida.” Et tu, Brownie?
It is the day after Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally, guest starring Sarah Palin, in the Don Knotts, Scooby Doo guest star slot, and the spin is on. Beck claims 400,000 people attended, Palin claims 500,000 people attended, and Michele Bachmann said 1 million people were there, but independent estimates place the number at 87,000-100,000 meaning another Beck rally has flopped.
The conservative demand for heroes is more intense than ever. There can never be enough dead heroes, Reagan, McCarthy and others, and living heroes seem even more in demand to judge by the quality of those being put forward, like Joe the Plumber, Sarah Palin, and by his own reckoning, Glenn Beck.
Glenn Beck delivered a powerful symbol to America today during his Restoring Honor rally, but it had nothing to do with his words or the crowd. If you looked closely at Beck during his “I Killed a Dream” speech, you could see that he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Beck was afraid of his own fans. Check out the pics for yourself.
It’s Saturday morning and I’m tuned in to the Beck Transformation Rally so you don’t have to watch. Sarah Palin speaks and unveils her 2012 campaign slogan, which you won’t be surprised to learn, she lifted from that man who stole her office, that black man, President Obama. Is it bad to point out that I love how she’s using theft to shift stereotypes?
Glenn Beck is a Mormon in evangelical clothing who has co-opted the Christian narrative for his own purposes. He is preaching what he obviously does not, and cannot believe given his Mormonism. Are mainstream Christians aware of this disconnect between Beck and his message? This has been noticed by some on the Religious Right. Some, but not enough.
Sarah Palin Goes to Hershey To Undermine Women’s Rights (again). A “Salute to the American Family”: aka, another night with Palin talking about our freedoms to have babies. And such. Sarah Palin is speaking at a fundraiser for The Pennsylvania Family Institute, which “is a non-profit, non-partisan research and education organization that analyzes public policies and cultural trends for their impact on the family.
It’s sort of a dirty little secret that in America, an intimate partner killed approximately 33% of female murder victims and more than 600 women every day are sexually assaulted. And what about the “conservatives” who claim to oppose Islam over the way women are treated don’t seem to give a good hoot what goes on here, in their own country? Here, where women are supposed to be free.
In his column today, Bill O’Reilly did something that every other Fox News personality has refused to do. He admitted that FNC is biased, not only are they biased, but they are biased against liberals. I know. I know. Pick yourself up off the floor because O’Reilly wrote, “The anti-liberal Fox News Channel and the Wall Street Journal, whose editorial page is conservative, are both doing very well.”
A civil war among evangelical Christians has broken out over some evangelicals’ participation with Glenn Beck’s Rally conservative rally in Washington this weekend, but as evangelicals are on the defense about setting aside their spiritual conviction to join Beck on what they see as a shared political agenda.
