Happy Super Tuesday; Long Live the Republic!

Okay folks. I can’t take it anymore. I have not done much Obama bashing until recently, but how much can a guy take? I could blog a list of contradictions and downright lies Obama has publicly pontificated from here to….well….someplace where Socialist leaders hang out and sip their ill gotten wine. As for Joe Biden, well he is just downright ridiculous. Man, peppering your pal with shotgun pellets ain’t nothing compared to what this guy is capable of doing. Yeah….I called Obama a “Socialist.” Call me what you want. If it is accurate, I will accept it. If it is not, I will refute it and ask for examples.

My favorite Joe Biden quote as of late that you will NOT see or read more than once in the drive by media (except on FOX News) is as follows: “We are going to have a international crisis….A generated crisis…to test the mettle of this guy.” What? Are you kidding me? Okay, so let’s elect a guy that terrorist sponsoring countries know is weak and they will soon (within 6 months according to Joe) challenge him with an international crisis. I have a better idea. Let’s elect someone that the terrorist dirt bags won’t mess with in the first place and we can all sleep at night! I am only 39, but unlike most of my 11 year old counterparts on January 20th, 1981, I took a keen interest is watching the news coverage of the Iran hostages being released within minutes of Ronald Reagan taking his oath of office (yes, I know…at an early age my parents knew I wasn’t normal). I recall my Mother explaining to me about the hostages and how they had been held in captivity for so long despite the efforts of our President to negotiate their release. Quite frankly, I did not quite understand all of it, but I later learned how incredibly pathetic the entire situation truly was and that Jimmy Carter’s desire to negotiate with terrorists was way off base. I do recall specifically, however, my Mother explaining in no uncertain terms that the hostages being released was because they knew better than to challenge the man who was just sworn in as President. You might say they didn’t want to test his mettle… think?

I don’t know about you, but looking at this picture gives me a feeling of warmth and security.
Now just imagine this scene with The Chosen One. How safe do you feel now?

Basically, Joe Biden is telling us that Obama being sworn in will have the opposite effect of Ronald Reagan. Start circling the wagons all you foes of the once great United States of America. Your time has arrived!

My favorite issue to thump on Obama about is his pathetic, shady, and downright dishonest public position on the 2nd Amendment. The other day, The Washington Post published an article about the sudden spike in background checks for the purchase of firearms. Admittedly, they vaguely alluded to the possibility that it could be because of Obama’s position on gun control, but that was about it. The rest of the article went on to talk about how crime goes up during a poor economy and people just want to arm themselves against desperate victims of a recession who lose all ethical and moral judgment because they are in need. Never mind that there is absolutely no tangible or credible study that links high crime to a poor economy. Oh yes, there are lot’s of credible studies of crime in poor neighborhoods, but that is completely different than a poor economy. There will always be poor neighborhoods because “poor” is a relative term (but that is another topic for another day). Anyway, The Washington Post continued: “Obama has said he believes in an individual’s right to bear arms but that he also supports 'common-sense safety measures.’” Sure, you know, like trigger locks and gun cabinets. Who can argue with that right? Let’s make sure we protect kids….etc…. Certainly, all of this is easy to find common ground with anyone, but let’s throw out some quotes that you will not read in the liberal, left wing media.

“I’ll continue to be in favor of handgun law registration requirements and licensing requirements for training.” – Chicago Defender, July 5, 2001
Of course he is in favor, that way the Federal Government knows where to find law abiding citizens who own guns so they can take them. It has been done before folks in other countries; don’t think it can’t happen here.

Here is another Obama quote you won’t find many places: “…just because you have an individual right does not mean that the state or local government can’t constrain the exercise of that right….” – 2008 Philadelphia primary debate
Uuuuhhh, mmmmkay……uh, yes it does mean they cannot constrain that right!!! That is what the 10th Amendment is for in the Bill of Rights. The Supreme Court disagreed with him by only 1 vote earlier this year, but that will change after he appoints a few of his own liberal Justices. I am not sure if he actually believes the stuff he says, or is just lying. Either way, it’s not good folks. Regardless, it will all be over on Wednesday morning. It’s a darn shame. I really hoped that our first black president would be someone good for our country, rather than someone who is going to destroy it. Well, I guess I can always stand on my argument that he is no more black than he is white.

Okay, just a few other brief rants, and I will be done with my pre-election Obama bashing. The next 4 years will provide ample supply, but unfortunately it will be as he works together with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to dismantle our Republic (yes, this is a Republic and not a Democracy….again, for another day). Alright….enough…back to rants:

"John McCain voted with George Bush 95% of the time" – Hey moron…..George Bush doesn’t vote! Why don’t you get that? The President does NOT VOTE! And yet, millions of ignorant Americans do not understand that George Bush has not voted in 8 years (or before that either because Governors do not vote as well).

I remember in the 1980’s when George 41 was running for President. I knew these Union guys that loved to say, “the rich get richer and poor get poorer.” I have not heard this one in a while, but I haven’t been hanging out with Union guys lately either. Here is a new one I think I will start using…”the rich get busted down to middle class and the poor stay poor because that is where The Man wants you to stay!” Ha…I said “The Man”…..don’t you just love it?

Here is a funny, yet true clip you just have to watch. Thanks John for sending it to me. You made my day with this one pal!

Happy Super Tuesday! Long live the Republic!
