Liberal Media

Isn’t it strange that the same reporters who refuse to provide life-saving information to American troops under the banner of objectivity are willing to endorse and ordain a candidate for president?

Seems hypocritical to me.

We Win!

Congratulations and thank you to every member of the U. S. armed forces, their wives, husbands, children, parents, boyfriends, girlfriends, best friends, aunts and uncles, grandparents, sisters and brothers, teachers, coaches, and civilian employers.   You won the war in Iraq.

In the process, you may well have defeated Al Qaeda worldwide.  You suffered abuse at the hands of anti-American liberals, you overcame Donald Rumsfeld’s incompetent leadership, you left limbs and lives on the battlefield.  Yet you never relented.  You pushed on and fought on.  You were our inspiration and motivation when we should have been yours.  You became our heroes.

While the war is not over, the outcome is decided.  You won.  We win.  You defeated our enemy with poise, skill, and dignity.  You will hold your heads up high and accept the accolades of grateful nation.  You return to civilian life heroes and role models.

In the darkness of battle, soldiers carry out tasks that, later, some question. Don’t you.  Your actions were noble and necessary.  You performed brilliantly despite the New York Times’ hopes you’d all die in battle.   America is not the New York Times.  America is hope, achievement, and greatness.  You are America.

You represent what General Patton spoke of when he said:

“Men, this stuff that some sources sling around about America wanting out of this war, not wanting to fight, is a crock of bullshit. Americans love to fight, traditionally. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle. You are here today for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your homes and your loved ones. Second, you are here for your own self respect, because you would not want to be anywhere else. Third, you are here because you are real men and all real men like to fight. When you, here, everyone of you, were kids, you all admired the champion marble player, the fastest runner, the toughest boxer, the big league ball players, and the All-American football players. Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn’t give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That’s why Americans have never lost nor will ever lose a war; for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.”

Yes.  There were cowards in America during World War II.  Even in that great battle, liberal cowards wanted to make peace with Hitler.  (Most liberals are Jew haters, you know.)  But Patton and the 3rd Army didn’t listen to them, and neither did you. 

God bless you.  Welcome home.  Congratulations.  Thank you.

Pro-Choice Veep? Simmer down

Many on the right claim they’ll vote Democrat if McCain chooses a pro-choice veep.

I’m as anti-abortion as anyone on the planet. I think my perseverating brethren need to learn their conservative roots.

George H. W. Bush was pro-choice when Regan chose him as veep.

Settle down, Michelle. McCain’s White House would be more pro-life than Obama’s. Take what you can get.

McCain Might Just Win This Thing

Do you remember the summer of 2007?  Reporters found John McCain carrying his own baggage through an airport and looking defeated and dissheveled.  In debt, at the bottom of the polls, and old, the MSM declared his campaign over.

They were wrong.  So was I.

Somehow, McCain staged a masterful comeback, and I use the word “masterful” advisedly.  His comeback was not spectacular or flamboyant or even memorable.  It was quiet, consistent, and strong.  Powerful, even.  He beat my man, Fred Thompson, America’s mayor, and the slickest of slick politicians, Mitt Romney.
Immediately, though, he was behind. May and June 2008 might as well have been August 2007. The media declared Obama the next POTUS; McCain the happless loser. 

Going to the the party conventions, McCain is the in front among likely voters in all polls.  Moreover, he is outplaying Obama in the media. 

McCain’s negative ads are tasteful, truthful, and effective.  McCain’s war room response instantly to almost every word Obama utters.  Today’s response was a thing of legend.

Obama, on the stump mocked McCain’s resonse to a reporters question about how many houses McCain owns:  “I don’t know.”   Barack’s rambling, semi-coherent stump speech isn’t worth repeating.  But the McCain response is:

“Does a man who made more than $4 million last year, just returned from a vacation on a private beach in Hawaii, and financed his million dollar mansion with the help of a convicted felon really want to debate houses?”

Brilliant.

McCain is demonstrating the campaign skills of Bill Clinton’s 1992 team.  He’s on message, he’s targeted in his attacks, and he’s winning every issue.  A major believes McCain is more capable of handling the economy than Obama, for instance.  That’s huge.

Moreover, the right has finally started attacking Obama’s same-skin relationship with the murderer Ayers.

A few months ago, I thought Obama would win a squeaker. Now I’m starting to think we’ve got a chance. 

Fight on, John, fight on!

If the election were held today, McCain would win the Electoral Vote 274 to 264. That’s masterful.

The Absolution Candidate

Rush Limbaugh came close, today, to a telling insight into the left’s love of Obama.  He finished short. Let me complete Rush’s thought:  The left worship Obama hoping for absolution and salvation.

Absolution is a big thing to a Catholic.  It’s the difference between Heaven and Hell.  Absolution comes only from God through His son Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection.  The Messiah paved the way.

The left’s deification of Obama stands on its own.  They worship him, they give him thanks, they praise him for his glory.  They view his election as the resurrection, the toil of the campaign as his passion, the hard-fought primaries as the agony in the garden. 

Assuaged with a bizarre guilt that afflicts liberalism, the guilt of being born white in America with great privilege and great prosperity, the left cries out for absolution from that original sin–the sin of Americanism.

In this trek toward secular salvation, the left’s history is even more moving than the Jews.  Israel has I Am who promised a Messiah and delivered Him to those with eyes to see and ears to hear.  The Jews were chosen — called by God to share the bounty of His heavenly feast.

Liberals, on the other hand, were called only by each other.  Their sins are self-invented, their guilt self-inflicted.  They’ve sought a god among dying things:  Franklin Roosevelt, the Supreme Court, George McGovern, and even the earth itself.  None sent a messiah, and from the struck rock flowed only sand.

messiah In their desperation, they have created their own messiah, whose name is Obama.  They have made him in their own image and likeness and declared that he is good.  Believing his election a moral responsibility, they have forsaken all past vows and broken all encumbering oaths to help him win.  They will ignore his opponent if they can, lie about him if they must.  It is the command of their god to elect Obama, and neither man’s law nor journalistic ethics will keep them from their duties.

In exchange, Obama promises to forgive them their sins–the sin of slavery, of racism, of prosperity, happiness, peace, and even of life.  Obama, in their minds, will drive the money changers like Exxon-Mobil from the temple of good and universal government.  Obama will grant them salvation and admission to their earthly heaven.  So they believe.

William F. Buckley’s 1965 campaign for mayor of New York popularized the phrase, “Don’t immanentize the eschaton,” meaning, don’t try to draw the end time near, or don’t expect heaven on earth.  Well, if heaven is earth, as it is to liberals, then there’s nothing wrong with taking such actions as necessary to enjoy that gift–before we die.

Alas, Barack Obama is simply their latest attempt at immanentizing the eschaton.  Like all their other false gods, this one, too, will die.  Not literally, perhaps, but figuratively.  Either Obama will win and disappoint, or he will lose and crush the liberals.  So it goes when you seek on earth what is only in heaven.  Why do they look for the living among the dead?

Looked at this way, it’s difficult to feel for liberals anything but the pity we feel for the ignorance of animals (Buckley, ~1968):  both look at men as gods guaranteeing futility and disappointment.

Russia Vows Pullout as Troops Dig In – washingtonpost.com

Maybe I didn’t overreact last week

According to the Washington Post on the scene in Gori, Republic of Georgia, Soviet Russian troops are “digging” for a long offensive or occupation:

Russia pledged Sunday to begin removing its troops from Georgia on Monday, but the streets of this occupied city reflected a broadening, not a waning, of Russia’s military incursion.

. . .

During a reporter’s 24-hour stay in the city this weekend, Russian soldiers roamed the streets in armored personnel carriers and waved Kalashnikov rifles to prevent entry to a captured Georgian military base that is now the Russian headquarters. Russian soldiers dug fortified positions for tanks along highways east and west of Gori and trucked in television and radio equipment to begin broadcasting in their own language.

“We have stopped firing — be glad about that,” a young Russian captain said when asked whether troops would soon withdraw.

Russia Vows Pullout as Troops Dig In – washingtonpost.com

 

I wonder which of his 248 positions the Idiot from Indonesia will trot out tomorrow?

And there’s more bad news.  It appears Russia is re-nuking its Navy fleet, likely in preparation for additional expansionist wars in the region.  According to the Times of London (not a bad source):

Russia is considering arming its Baltic fleet with nuclear warheads for the first time since the cold war, senior military sources warned last night.

The move, in response to American plans for a missile defence shield in Europe, would heighten tensions raised by the advance of Russian forces to within 20 miles of Tbilisi, the Georgian capital, yesterday.

This ratcheting up of tensions, now including nuclear threats, are signs of an aggressor.  This is likely the start of a new Cold War and one that could turn hot quickly.

If you care about freedom and prosperity, you better get on the GOP bandwagon and fast; Barack Obama opposes both.

Hey, Obama: Take Your Ass-Kicking Like a Man!

The day after John McCain handed Barack Obama his ass on a platter at the Saddleback Forum, Obama’s paid mouthpiece, Andrea Mitchell, accused McCain of cheating (see Newsbusters).  I guess going mano-a-mano with a real man is above Obama’s paygrade, too.

How pathetically consistent.  Barack Obama’s childishness, immaturity, and lack of accountability grow to new legendary heights every passing day. 

I really don’t know how people can take this brat seriously.  He lies like a rug, he cries like a baby when things don’t go his way, he cannot form a coherent English sentence unless it’s written, rehearsed, and printed on a teleprompter.  He has accomplished nothing except for carefully following the scripts of his handlers his entire life.  You can bet he was the recipient of grade inflation for minorities throughout college. 

A few months ago, I found myself sort of liking Obama.  That was when I first started looking at him as a possible nominee for the Democrats.  Day by day, though, I have come to loathe this childish bastard.  His smarminess, his conceit, his phoniness.  He’s as fake a porno movie orgasm and half as orginal.

Barack Obama might well be the worst candidate every nominated by a major party–George McGovern and Walter Mondale included.

UPDATE:  McCain campaign calls out NBC’s Andrea Mitchell as an Obama hack, NBC News as a partisan ad agency for the DNC.  Get ’em John!

UPDATE II:  Michelle Malkin’s mocking of The Obama is a classic.  Wizbang’s Kim Priestap is flabbergasted that Andrea Mitchell and Obama can be this childish.

Russia v. Georgia: McCain Was Right, Obama Was Everywhere

We’ve had a week to look at our two presidential candidates’ handling of the largest foreign policy incident posterblog_winso far this campaign.  In this crisis, we saw the  difference between a strong man and an insecure boy.

John McCain, who warned us a long time ago that President Bush’s evaluation of Putin was naive, called the matter right from the start, according Jim Wooten in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  McCain, who once said that he looked into Putin’s eyes and saw “a ‘K’, a ‘G’, and a ‘B’,”  held one, single, defining position throughout the crisis:

The implications of Russian actions go beyond their threat to the territorial integrity and independence of a democratic Georgia. Russia is using violence against Georgia, in part, to intimidate other neighbors – such as Ukraine – for choosing to associate with the West and adhering to Western political and economic values. As such, the fate of Georgia should be of grave concern to Americans and all people who welcomed the end of a divided of Europe, and the independence of former Soviet republics. The international response to this crisis will determine how Russia manages its relationships with other neighbors. We have other important strategic interests at stake in Georgia, especially the continued flow of oil through the Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan pipeline, which Russia attempted to bomb in recent days; the operation of a critical communication and trade route from Georgia through Azerbaijan and Central Asia; and the integrity and influence of NATO, whose members reaffirmed last April the territorial integrity, independence, and sovereignty of Georgia.

As I said, McCain was firm, consistent, and correct throughout the crisis. 

Obama, on the other hand, was a like fifth grader who failed to study for an oral geography quiz.

 

First, Obama endorsed Russia’s invesion.  Next, Obama said he would have no position until a clear winner emerged and some polling data could be analyzed.  Finally, Obama repeated what McCain said.

When picking a president, let’s pick the one who doesn’t have to wait for a poll or a grown up to tell him what’s right and what’s wrong.  Obama can’t seem to figure out much on his own.  Without McCain feeding him lines, he’d still be clapping to Rev. Wright’s diatribes against America.  Without a fawning media, he’d still be rigging elections on Chicago’s south side.  Without grown ups to tell him what to say, he’d still be editing articles for a college magazine.

When you have a choice between a man and child for president, choose the man. Choose McCain.
