And This, They Think Is Admirable

"What?" you ask.  Why, Rahm Emanuel's steak-knife wielding calls of "Death!" for those he deems his political enemies.  (Small wonder he's anti-gun -- G-d forbid his enemies be able to defend themselves).

     LTFO.  They're loadin' the loose cannons aboard first

     I tell you true, I was going to leave the political stuff alone for awhile but the incoming El Supremo just won't let me.  Can't he even fake that so-called "moving to the center" the pundits tell us they all do?

All serious concerns aside...

I am beginning to wonder if this might not be the most entertaining presidency of the past 100 years. It's shaping up to be a real fruit farm.

Lets face it... Obama is walking into office with half the country disliking him, and the other half waiting with hands out for the reins to their free rainbow unicorn he promised them.

I suspect his constituency will turn on him faster than Kennedy reneged on swimming lessons with Mary Joe. When their free heat/rent/house/car/check doesn't arrive 87 seconds after he's sworn in, they will be out for blood.

The media will be half a step behind, or maybe in front. They thrive on bad news, and who's left to blame anything on since they rigged the election so thoroughly?

Nope.... Obama is in for a tough road.... and on top of that he'll have to keep Biden under a rock someplace, and hope Pelosi can't get them both in her sights at once.

My secret dream is that The Chosen One name Ayers for DHS... Or maybe Justice.

I don't know, you'd have to go a long way to beat the Original Clinton appointees.

I mean, Jocelyn Elders? Lloyd Bentsen? Robert Reich? Janet Reno? It was like the Jim Rose Freak Show.

Obama doesn't know what the "center" is. All he's ever known are the uber-liberal politics of Chicago.

Carteach said...

Give the man a chance! He just got the nod. All he's done since he was twenty five years old is campaign for his next job. He's never actually had to DO something. Ever. Not once.

Don't lose hope..... I strongly suspect it's going to be a circular fornication of epic proportions.

Hey! Those freaks are perfectly nice, respectable people in an unusual profession. There is absolutely no call to be so mean spirited as to compare them to Janet Reno & co. What, did one of Rose's folks kick your cat or something?

I'd have paid good damn money to watch Lloyd Bentsen eat a lightbulb, though...

(Word Verification: "inguns". What I use money to keep myself...)

Clinton had a terrible time finding a Secretary of Defense due to the aggressively hostile anti-military feelings of many on the White House staff. Lots of Democrats turned him down; they wouldn't serve under such conditions.

As for Emanuel... crap. He (and Stephanopoulous) are the models for the Michael J. Fox character in the movie The American President, the aide who is constantly bugging the President about gun control.

When they schedule hearings I'm gonna send a check to NRA-ILA, and send a copy to the chair of the DCCC. And if it passes out of committee, ditto. And if it's scheduled for a floor vote, ditto. And if it gets a floor vote, win, lose or draw, the same. All the way to the President's desk.

I'm reminded that Bill Clinton dumped his "middle class tax cuts" a month PRIOR to being sworn in for his first term.

I'm waiting for BO to declare that everyone who makes over $15,000 is "rich" and will be raising their taxes.

Word verif: praggi
Is that like, pragmatic?

Jocelyn Elders?

She inspired a wonderful song by The Foremen: "Firing The Surgeon General".

I could hardly recommend a more uplifting tune.
