Democrats Expose Themselves

I couldn’t sleep Wednesday night.

Normally I don’t go looking for fights, even though they often find me, but I was bored!

I decided to troll the leftwits at the Huffington Post forums.

Okay, that isn’t exactly true.  I was reading stories about the floor vote at the DNC convention to add the words “God” and “Jerusalem” back into the Democrat’s platform, and I wanted to see how the liberals were reacting to it.  It all started out as simple honest interest in how they viewed those events.  I didn’t plan to engage in any heckling, but, as I said, I was bored!

For me, the events of Wednesday’s floor vote sums up everything about the Democrats in one neat little package.  All you ever needed to know about them is encapsulated in one little video caught by C-Span:

1)      Racism is alive and well, and resides in the Democrat Party.

2)      Democrats will go to any lengths to deceive the public.

3)      The Godless do indeed make up a large contingent of the DNC.

4)      Anti-Semitism is rampant among liberals.

5)      Democrats use crass demagoguery to keep minority factions in line.

6)      Democrats will throw their own under the bus.

7)      Votes only count to Democrats if they like the results.

Racist Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (who thinks that he belongs to “the” race) was the perfect choice by the Democrats to represent them as their Convention Chairman.  He embodies the liberal notion of placing the color of one’s skin ahead of the content of their character, and, as if any further proof was needed, this event leaves no doubt that he is personally bereft of any such character.

This vote was a set up from the beginning.  It was a contrived effort to attack Mitt Romney for not being 100% in line with the Republican platform, which, in this case apparently calls for abortion to be restricted with no exceptions.  Romney would leave exceptions for rape, incest and the health of the mother.  Democrats spent a good part of last week trying to make some political hay out of that difference, but didn’t gain any traction.  Most everyone knows that a fresh political candidate has little control over their party platform.  Only incumbents, like Barack Obama, really have that power.

The Democrats concocted this political maneuver in order to try to slam Romney while portraying Barack Obama as a forceful leader.  They were deriding Romney for not having the “courage” to attack the Republican platform and force it to mirror his own views.  The original wording of the Democrats platform was written with the intent of setting the stage to allow for the “heroic” Obama to rush in and save the day by demanding that his own platform be changed to his will.

Unfortunately, for them, they let the cat out of the bag earlier in the week by letting it be known that Obama signed off on the original wording.

Also unfortunately, for them, the masquerade backfired in a spectacular and glorious fashion!

So, as Villaraigosa took the stage at the DNC, with his teleprompter already displaying the results of a vote he had not yet taken, he was met with something that he didn’t expect:

Resistance!

Everybody knows that happy little liberals are not allowed to disagree with the stated party line!  It doesn’t even matter how ridiculous the spin might be!  They’ll keep to it.  I guess they just weren’t prepared for the talking points to change, and Villaraigosa was DEFINITELY not prepared for the delegate’s reaction to those changes!

The delegate’s reaction to the notion of adding God back to the platform was very telling, as was the reaction that I saw among many liberals posting at The Huffington Post.  They railed at the notion of the “sky fairy” being mentioned in a political setting.  They revealed that they believe that anyone who believes in such “fairy tales” could not be rational or intelligent.

I pointed out to them that it was Obama himself that forced the wording changes.  So, either Obama believes in God, which, by their logic, would make him irrational, or Obama doesn’t believe in God, which makes his own platform a lie. 

By their own definition, Obama is either an idiotic lunatic, or a liar… or both.

They REALLY didn’t like to hear that much!  They weren’t able to refute the point, so many of my posts were deleted by the site moderators and deemed as “personal attacks”.  Apparently pointing out logical fallacies to a liberal equates to attacking them personally.

The Anti-Semitism among liberals and Democrats was evidenced by the people carrying “Arab-American Democrat” signs (like we really need more hyphenated “Americans”?) and shouting “NO!” to the notion of confirming Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  There is a huge contingent of Pro-Palestinian, Anti-Israel Democrats.  They may, in fact, make up the majority of that party.  Jewish people in America are finally starting to wake up to that reality, and more and more are “defecting” to the Republican Party every day.  I thought it very telling that the Democrats had to rush out to attempt damage control.

There was even the claim that conservative Christians only care about Israel because, according to Palm Beach County Democratic Chairman Mark Alan Siegel, The Christians just want us to be there so we can be slaughtered and converted and bring on the second coming of Jesus Christ”.

Disgusting.

But what I thought was the funniest part about this whole ordeal was how the vote was rigged from the beginning, and I was delighted as I watched Villaraigosa throw his own party’s delegates under the bus!  The look on his face was just pure comedy gold!

Two-thirds of the delegates would have been required to accede to the changes for the vote to have passed, but there is no way that anyone residing within a realm with the slightest connection to reality could claim there was a 2/3 vote in favor of either side.

But the fix was in.

Thanks to video taken at the event, we know now that Villaraigosa’s teleprompter was already set up for him to read the results as being in favor of making the changes.  This demonstrates beyond any doubt that the Democrats only care about votes if those votes are going their way. 

If they will ignore the votes of their own delegates to fix an election at their own convention, how can that leave any doubt about what they would do in a general election?

This one event nearly sums up the entire case against the Democrats and liberals.

Dissecting Michelle Obama

I started this article with every intention of going through Michelle Obama’s entire speech at the DNC convention.  That  didn’t work out as planned.  I got about a quarter of the way through her speech before I just could not bear even to look at the text of it anymore.  It is beyond absurd.  I will go through the rest of it at a later date, if my scheduling allows.  

But even just this first portion is incredible!!!

“Over the past few years as first lady, I have had the extraordinary privilege of travelling all across this country.”

WE KNOW!  You’ve travelled all over this country and several other countries…  ALL ON OUR DIME.

She goes on from here to talk about wounded warriors and heroes that make sacrifices for other people, often risking their lives.  I would have no quarrel with that part of it, except that it is obvious empty rhetoric and pandering to a group that does not support this president because they know full well how much (or little) he has supported them.

“Serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege.  But, back when we first came together four years ago, I still had some concerns about this journey we’d begun.”

Wait…  Serving..?  How exactly is she serving us?  By telling us what we should feed our children?  By vacationing and partying at the taxpayer’s expense?  And yes, Michelle, we are all fully aware that you had some “concerns” about the “journey we’d begun”.  We know that you first became proud of America only after your husband was elected.  We have doubts about just how proud you are of America, even today.

“While I believe it if we dig deeply in my husband’s vision for this country, and I was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, I was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance.  How would we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight?  How would they feel being uprooted from their school, their friends and the only home they’d ever known?”

“See our life before moving to Washington was filled with simple joys.  Saturdays at soccer games, Sundays at grandma’s house, and a date night for Barack and me with either dinner or a movie because as an exhausted mom, I couldn’t stay awake for both.”

(LAUGHTER)

One should EXPECT laughter after hearing this joke!  Hell, I don’t even know where to begin!  Obviously Michelle learned something about writing an auto-biography from her husband.  Her narrative here is just as fake as anything that Barack wrote (assuming he actually wrote it) in Dreams of My Father.  Where are the fact checkers now?  Michelle Obama was NOT a soccer mom!!!  Not even REMOTELY a soccer mom!  But here she claims to have been pulled from that care-free life to serve as First Lady..?

This is the type of lying that liberals are known for, and the media will allow it to pass unchecked because they support the liberal agenda.

“And the truth is, I loved the life we had built for our girls. And I deeply love the man I built that life with and I did not want that to change if he became president.”

(APPLAUSE)

“I loved Barack just the way he was.  You see, even back then, when Barack was a Senator and presidential candidate, to me, he was still the guy who picked me up for our dates in a car that was so rusted out, I could actually see the pavement going by in a hole in the passenger side door.”

(LAUGHTER)

This should read “incredulous laughter”.  Does anyone believe that Senator Barack Obama was driving around in a car that was rusted out?  Anyone..?  Liberals, do you really buy this crap?  

There are two types of liberals; those that believe the lies, and those that happily repeat them, knowing they are lies.

“He was the guy whose proudest possession was a coffee table he’d found in a dumpster.”

(APPLAUSE)

SAY WHAT?!?!?!

Senator Barack Obama was a dumpster diver?!

And PROUD OF IT?!

Michelle Obama just called the president a dumpster diver at the DNC convention, and not a single liberal media outlet even so much as cocked their head in wonder.  On the contrary, they APPLAUDED!  

This is like an episode of the Twilight Zone, folks!

The rabbit hole goes deeper from here.  Too deep for me to get into tonight, but in preview, I will say that Michelle claims that their lofty Ivy League educations were paid for with student loans, and further claims that they had to work very hard to pay them off.  Barack Obama went to Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard on Pell Grants and Stafford Loans..?

I would love to see some proof of that!

And I would love to see even one alphabet network fact check her speech.

Honestly.

A Devil’s Advocate for Todd Akin

I’ll be candid here…

Missouri Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin

In my daily life, I cuss quite a bit.  It’s a habit that I developed when I was very young, and haven’t quite been able to kick.  I purposefully try to avoid using profanities in my writing, but I am definitely going to use one here, so…  If you have virgin ears (or eyes, as the case may be) you might want to turn away now.

This is the quote that got Missouri Senate hopeful Todd Akin into so much trouble:

“It seems to me, first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” Akin said.

This isn’t just stupid; it is so far beyond fucking stupid that I can fully understand why Akin’s current opponent in the Senate race donated money to his primary campaign.

Okay, I am done cussing, and now I am going to flip the script…

If you have no desire to witness a contrived defense of Akin, skip down to the next bolded line..!

I am going to play devil’s advocate here and attempt to defend the indefensible.

It won’t be easy!

I mean, “legitimate rape”..?  That doesn’t sound very easy to defend.

But we all know that some claims of rape are untrue, or even fabricated out of thin air.  Have we already forgotten the Duke LaCrosse team and Crystal Gale Magnum?  Have we forgotten about Tawana Brawley?  More to the point, I know for a fact that some women have engaged in completely consensual sex, and then have later made the accusation that they were raped.  What their motives may have been–revenge, money, or whatever–has no real bearing to the point I am trying to make here.

As for the next part of the sentence “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down”..?

All I can say, in this case, is that a woman who is being brutally assaulted physically and is terrified, in fear for her life..?  Such a condition doesn’t sound very conductive to conception to me.

Some married couples are able to have children at the drop of a hat.  I have always envied them, in a way, because when I was younger I always wanted to have a big family, even if families like the Duggars (of 19 Children and Counting fame) kind of freak me out a little.  But some couples have an extreme amount of trouble trying to conceive even under the best of conditions, and any fertility doctor would say that there are conditions which are more conductive to conception, and conditions that are not.

That’s about the best defense I can come up with, and I am DONE defending Akin, because he really doesn’t deserve it, and I feel a little dirty.  Anyone who skipped to this line would probably feel comfortable reading freely from here.

The truth is that there is a double-standard for us, as conservatives.  It isn’t just because the media has a different standard for us than they have for the liberals that they almost universally support.  It is because we hold ourselves to a higher standard, as well.  We can not expect the double-standard in the media to ever go away if we abandon the standards we hold for ourselves.

It just doesn’t work like that.

As a conservative candidate for the Senate, Akin should have been well aware of this, and thus his gaffe just isn’t excusable, despite my attempted defense of him.  He showed an astounding lack of sense in every aspect, and his selfishness in refusing to drop out of the Senate race may very well cause that seat to go to Democrat Claire McCaskill, whom I despise.

That’s really sad.  I hate to see it.

But I would hate to see us abandon any sense of principle in favor of crass political concerns much, much more.

If we do that, we might as well just give up and join the DNC.

Reid Takes a Bullet Full of Crazy for Obama and DNC

It has been an interesting week in the world of Politics.

Again, I could do with seeing less of this guy.

“Dirty” Harry Reid, the Senate Leader from Nevada, has come out to accuse presidential contender Mitt Romney of failing to file tax returns for ten years.  Oh, the joy he brings to a political pundit and strategist like me!

Reid makes these accusations based upon an obviously solid “source”…  himself!

Nevermind that the IRS, currently under control of the Obama administration, has never found fault with Romney.  Nevermind that Romney has released more tax returns than Reid (who has released exactly zero).  I delight in the irony of such an accusation coming from someone who lives in the Ritz Carlton, has dubious connections to organized crime in Nevada, and got very rich shortly after becoming a Senator, even though a Senator’s salary really isn’t all that high.

Senate Leader Whackadoodle just keeps on giving.

But Harry Reid doesn’t care what anyone thinks about him.  Obviously, he couldn’t care less what conservatives think, but he doesn’t care what other liberals think, or what the media thinks, either…  at least not right now.

That is because Harry Reid got re-elected in 2010 and he has another four years before he has to care what anyone thinks of him.  By then, everyone is sure to have forgotten this.

But even Reid himself is highly unlikely to believe his own story.  So, why make it all up?

As I pointed out in my article yesterday, the Obama campaign is desperate to dig up some dirt on the squeaky clean (for a politician, anyway) Mitt Romney.  Everything they have tried to use against Romney has fallen flat, and they’re out of ideas.  They need more dirt, so they have turned to Romney and they’re practically begging for his help.  But that rat bastard Romney just won’t budge!  How dare he..?

So far, the Democrats have tried everything they can think of to get Romney to help them, and none of it is getting enough traction in the press to force Romney’s hand.

Enter Harry Reid.

Obama and the DNC needed someone to escalate things into the realm of crazypants, and Reid fit the bill.  He’s perfect for the job.

The only thing Reid has to lose right now is his position as Majority Leader in the Senate, and he stands a much greater chance of holding on to that job if Obama gets re-elected.  As the Senate Majority Leader, the media is obligated to give him coverage, which spreads the lie almost as well as if Obama himself were to say it.  Reid can feel safe making the accusation from the Senate floor, because doing so gives him legal immunity from being taken to court for anything that he says, and Reid is bulletproof electorally.

Perfect!

Now DNC operatives and liberal pundits are free to distance themselves from Reid publicly, while rushing to the airwaves to claim that “Romney can clear all of this up by just releasing more tax returns”, which has been their goal all along.

While it is typical of the liberal mindset that the accused must prove himself innocent rather than the accuser proving guilt (at least when it comes to Republicans), that isn’t really something upon which anyone should focus.

The real thing of interest to a pundit like me is that the liberal sharks don’t smell any blood in the waters.  They really WANT to smell it, but they don’t…

They’re being denied their feeding frenzy, and it is making them slowly go insane (well, okay… more insane).

Expect them to get crazier as we get closer to November!

Someone pass the popcorn…

Why Obama is So Desperate

Mitt Romney has released tax returns, but you wouldn’t know it by listening to Democrats and the lap-dog media.

I’m really starting to like this guy!

They constantly pretend as though he hasn’t released any at all, and this, of course, means that Mitt must have something to hide!  It is a catch-22 setup that was meant to destroy Romney’s character.  The Democrats didn’t find anything they could really use in the returns that Romney has already released, so now they are demanding more.  But it isn’t working.

Romney is smartly sticking to his guns in the face of the Democrat’s demands, lies in the media, and even some establishment Republicans saying that he should cave (which just makes me want to slap the hell out of every single last one of them).  But if he were to give in, the Democrats would only scour whatever material Romney released for as much dirt as they could find, and if they didn’t really find any, they’d misrepresent the information, much as they are doing with the returns that Romney has already released.

The problem for the Democrats is that their current misrepresentations haven’t gained any real traction, even in the media that supports them with devotion.

Why is this such a huge problem?

Well, as Ann Coulter rightly pointed out in her recent article, Barack Obama has never won an election without waging a campaign of character assassination.

Not one single time.

Unfortunately, for Democrats, they have expended their entire arsenal trying to kill Romney’s character, and now they’re begging Romney to give them more ammunition.  He is right to refuse.  Even if he released five years of returns, they would demand ten years worth and then wonder (as loudly as they could and to anyone who would listen) what Romney supposedly has to hide.

Romney has frustrated the Democrats in this so much that Senate Leader Harry Reid even took to the Senate floor with wild claims that Romney never payed his taxes at all for ten years. The DNC and Reid are so out of touch that they believed this move would spur Romney into giving in to their demands.

Instead, people are laughing and shaking their heads in bewilderment, and Romney still holds firm.  You guys, I am really starting to warm up to Mitt Romney!

Reid’s “unsourced” accusations could easily have landed him in court had he made them any other place but the floor of the Senate, where anything may be said without penalty. My friends, that is how desperate the Democrats have become.

This entire episode with Romney’s tax returns was never primarily about creating a distraction from Obama’s poor performance on the economy, although it does serve that dual purpose. David Axelrod and company have known since Obama’s earliest days in Chicago that their guy is a loser, and that their only winning strategy is to turn their opponents into even bigger losers in the eyes of the public.

It is literally the only strategy that they have ever used.

They tried the Mormon thing…  It didn’t work.
They tried dog stories…  They backfired (Obama eats dog!)
They tried Romneycare…  Not working.
They pushed the “War on Women” narrative…  One of their own operatives killed it.
They tried attacking him for his work at Bain Capital…  That didn’t work, either.
They tried lying about when Romney was actively involved in Bain…  No dice.

Mitt and Ann Romney

They have even tried attacking Ann Romney for, of all things, her horseback riding and entering a show horse in the Olympics… Now THAT is desperate.

I’ve probably missed a few things, but the point is that none of the poo the Democrats are flinging is sticking to the wall.  Their desperation has led them to make laughable accusations, but recently it has morphed into something far more sinister…

In one of their riskiest moves yet, which I believe will backfire on them, they have stooped so low as to attempt to reduce the number of days that members of the military may vote in Ohio.

Yeah, like THAT’S not going to piss anyone off!

They rightfully believe that they own most of the media, and hope that their heinous actions won’t get reported enough to matter.  But they are so smug in that belief that they have forgotten an age-old rule of politics; all politics are local.

The members of our military certainly won’t take this lying down, and they have families who will be very vocal about it, too.  The local media isn’t likely to be able to ignore the story.  You can bet that Ohio’s Republican governor, John Kasich, isn’t going to be silent.

Making this notion of theirs public was an extreme miscalculation on the part of the Obama campaign, even if they end up backing down from it.

But desperation leads to unforced errors… often in direct proportion.

And Obama is very, very desperate.

Edit:  Due to Deborah’s comment below, I have had to revisit the Ohio lawsuit.  I apologize to readers for any confusion.  Unfortunately, there seems to have been some confusion about this in the major media, as well.

After having read from several different sources,  it appears that the Democrats are suing to block a new law from going into effect.  That part in my piece is accurate.  The confusion stems from the fact that this has been reported in different ways by different news outlets, and some of the outlets even contradict themselves.  Some outlets portray the law as adding three extra days for the military to vote.  Other outlets portray the law as having reduced the number of early voting by three days for everyone except for the military.  Oddly enough, some stories I read gave BOTH impressions.

The justification for reducing the early voting by three days is said to be that it would reduce out-of-control costs and the possibility of fraud.  Knowing how Mickey Mouse and Dick Tracy registered to vote in my former home state, I would agree that fraud is an issue.  However, I do not see how such a move would reduce costs if the polls must remain open for service members, nor do I see how reducing the number of days to vote effectively reduces fraud.  In such a case, I would have to reluctantly agree with the Democrats that this law would be pointless.

Either way, it is damned dangerous to mess with the military vote.  It could be much less dangerous for Obama than how I positioned it in my story, but dangerous all the same.  They must really feel like they will be in deep trouble there to take such a risk for a mere three days.

Since the lawsuit itself was not the main focus of this article, I failed to adequately research it for this opinion piece.  For that, I deeply apologize.
