MSNBC DISSES OBAMA? WHAAAAT??

Forgive me for posting anything with Olbermann's face in it...really, FORGIVE ME, everybody......but I found this fascinating....when a liberal president loses MSNBC, there's a problem, Houston....

Again, forgive me for foisting this ridiculous troika on you but I figured it was worth the satisfaction to see even they're waking up to our Commander in Chief. You know what really ticks me off is when 3 liberals this partisan call anything pretty fairly....I sometimes feel like I ought to pay more attention to what they say more of the time. Then I remind myself.."naaaa".
Thanks for the tip, Impertinent.

Another empty speech from Empty Suit Obama.

Apparently, the speech wasn't well received in many quarters. LOL.

Right now, Axelrod is on FNC in an attempt to defend BHO's speech. LOL again.

Ducky's here said...

Yeah, that speech was about as bad as it gets. The Black Bush is really grating.

Duckhead, George Bush kept this country safe after 9-11! As far as I am concerned the weaknesses & shoddy leadership by Clinton were largely responsible for that. Oh, yeah, I frogot, he bombed an aspirin factory. We don't need your kind constantly trying to insult President Bush. You can't diminish him, but you certainly do yourself. Also, it didn't take President Bush a couple of weeks or more to show up at the point of the disaster.

Just in case anybody else is having that trouble, I'm looking into it. thanks

That's right, Slvrlady, a trillion+ dollars to keep us safe from box cutters and you're still wetting the bed.

What's going to keep us safe from our own arrogance?

Z said...

Silvrlady....the left is demented when it comes to Bush, you know that...Obama's just not 'left enough' for them.

I didn't watch the speech but can't help seeing it here and there on the news since last night after it was over.....he appears to be very resentful of any possible criticism to himself; Apparently, this guy thinks he's perfect and is still riding the ego train of the election. Scary times, folks, it's tough to deal with this kind of mentality running a country. Not that all presidents don't have egos, how can you not in that position, but this guy's smacks of something different, unhealthy.

Z said...

Ah, Ducky...OUR arrogance? And, how do you propose we stop box cutters? Stop being arrogant and they'll like us and go away?

BO's speech and lack of action is SOOOOO bad even the leftists in the MSM can't put a polish on it.

Another typical 0bama speech that was a total a waste of my time and of airtime.
I watched it until he got into his REAL agenda, , using another disaster to push his Cap and Trade BS
But to the average Liberal Leftist Idiots who voted for him, he was "wonderful".
For 58 days now, the (real) American People have watched in horror as a ocean of black oil has been pouring out of A-hole under our ocean and all we hear is threats and more threats!.

But no, he wants to “Kick Ass” as his new adviser Spike Lee told him to do. Talk “Street Talk” as Spike Lee suggested. I guess that he intends to make this Disaster go away as he made terrorism go away.
After about 5-8 minutes, I switched channels and watched a GOOD ballgame and the Yankees beat the Phillies and Roy Halladay.
And George Bush had nothing to do with the way Halladay pitched or why the Phillies lost.

When Chris Matthews compares Obama to Jimmah Carter, Obama becomes a "dead prez walking". This oil spill is not Obama's Katrina. It's his Waterloo.

But, as Obama says, "We're going to do everything in our power".

Except...everything in our power.

Ducky, you must be sick that some finally want to put your buddy Chavez on list of those harboring terrorists, huh?
No answer re how you'd solve the box cutter problem? Just be nice? Pay them off?

Brooke...it never ends.

midnight rider, welcome to GeeeeZ...as you saw at IBA, I love that line about the leaking feet!

malcontent, you think Spike recommends rapping presidential speeches?!!

Silvrlady....it's a nightmare only socialists could love. I keep wondering where Obama thinks we're going to ever get the money to get ourselves out of this? there aren't even enough rich people he despises to take care of that.

Ducky,

What's going to keep us safe from our own arrogance?


It would be great if this were not asked as a rhetorical question.

Generally speaking, Americans are terribly arrogant. The fact that I chafed at your comment is proof enough that I'm not truly humble.

Solzhenitsyn pegged our problem when speaking of his own people. As a society, we've forgotten God. In many ways, this is true even of those who still claim to be Christian in one or another way.

We have personal idols, cultural idols and political idols that constantly draw our attention away from the Lord and when we obtain even brief victory over our enemies, we tend to credit our President or military or ability to bounce back from financial woes before remembering to thank God for His protection and direction of our affairs.

The solution to our arrogance is not "tear down the existing failing regime and rebuild it into a full-blown oppressive socialistic system"

The primary directive is to recognize that God is in total control even now and be humbled before Him.

If I shut up the heavens, and there is no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send a plague among My people; if My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
(2 Chronicles 7:13-14)

God alone can save us from our own arrogance, Ducky. That includes you, me, Pres O and anyone else that you might have had come to mind.

More importantly, God alone can save us from the eternal punishment that we so richly deserve for BEING so unbelievably arrogant toward Him.

If fundamentalist belief can save us from our arrogance then I am absolutely baffled that the religious right still clings to a belief in American exceptionalism.

True Christian belief has no room for arrogance, Ducky. Did you not read Heather or Elbro's comments?
Arrogance needs not coincides with exceptionalism. One can be exceptional and not arrogant.
We are exceptional....I keep asking you to offer one country MORE exceptional and you run from that.
You'll be very relieved and happy to hear I will never doubt our exceptionalism but I am doubting our society these days..

I didn't say fundamentalist belief saves, Ducky.

I said God saves. Not only is He alone capable of saving us, but every believer is a work in progress and will be such until he meets Christ face to face.

To expect individual or societal perfection while dealing with flawed people is pure fantasy.




Additionally, anyone can intellectually or emotionally attach himself to a creed or movement or doctrinal statement without having truly been changed at a heart level.


Many of those on the religious right may simply be "religious" rather than have any sort of right relationship with God via the Holy Spirit.

To pass blanket judgment over an entire group when you disagree with some who claim to belong to that group is exactly the opposite attitude of what you recently explained to me is your position.

I go real easy on condemning entire groups. There are Israelis who are vulgar human garbage just as that's true of Hamas. However, condemning all Muslims as "evil" is ,to put it bluntly, stupid. I'd say ignorant but it is so over the high side that ignorant doesn't quite describe the idea.

See the inconsistency?

We are all individually responsible to repent and enter into a right relationship with God. It is pretty arrogant for any individual to reject Christ as Lord God and Savior and claim that the problems in this world are someone else's fault

Being leftist means never having to be intellectually consistent (or even intellectual, for that matter).

As you may have come to realize, Ducky is of the noisy but still marginalized 5% of the American voters that consider themselves "far leftist" yet look through a telescope backwards to ineffectually snipe at the 95% of American voters who are "far right" of him yet somehow insignificant and powerless.

What'd all the loons who voted for this knucklead head ever expect? Never worked a day in his life....never managed a business...never met a payroll ( we know he's always had his hand out though ) and was always "present" when called on. He's proved he's just Dumbo incarnate.

Not having close contact with any far leftists myself, I find his view to be fascinating.

Not logical, mind you.
But definitely intriguing.


Whatever my initial instinct suggests, it does seem only fair to form my opinion of Ducky based on personal interaction rather than the reports of others (regardless of how informed). It would be hypocritical of me to just assume he is organically incapable of rationality simply because that appears to be a common far left trait.

I'm still holding out for "spiritually dead" rather than brain dead.

Obama wants power over every industry, thereby the American people. What he fails to understand is, the top honcho takes the blame when things go wrong.

This is just another lesson in how incompetent the government is in being in charge of anything, except our military, and even that is tainted with political interference.

Compounding this bloated government chaos, is a President having missed the boat on what he could have done in the beginning of this. Purposeful, IMO.

He could have waived The Jones Act allowing help from other countries who offered their equipment and expertise.

He could have cut red tape, alleviating regulatory barriers, which left Louisiana and their Governor whistling in the wind, begging for permission needed for building sand berms to protect the coastline. No, the EPA had to do a study. Gee, weren't they watching TV?

He did neither. I think he wanted a crisis to forward his energy agenda called Cap and Trade, which was dying on the vine. Otherwise why drag his feet on this?

I think also, like most leftists, he and his army of radical PHDs didn't consider what could go wrong. In other words, unintended consequences when eveything is political, instead of problem solving.

Now, he's between a rock and a hard place. The problem is ongoing and for too long. But, it is't stopping him from his now common MO.

Demonize BP without even knowing the cause of the explosion. Assault the oil industry with a moratorium on drilling, costing thousands of jobs in the gulf area, and millions of barrels of oil. Making the entire problem worse.

Ahhhh, but never let a good crisis go to waste, right? Even if you have to compound it. He's on offense, setting up several bureaucrats along with BP, to take the fall if need be.

Then try to convince the American people we have to establish energy independence, all the while ensuring dependence on foreign oil and more of it.

And here we have the left wing talking heads of TV, wringing their hands and whining "Why?", and not mentioning once what Obama could've done right from the get-go, which was clearing the way for others to do their jobs.

These idiots believe the government is the be all and end all for eveything, and still don't get it.

They haven't a clue, that the government isn't the answer, the government is the problem.

Bimbo "Guidette" from the MTV reality show....Jersey Shore. Which features several Italian couples and their travels, smackdowns along the Seaside Heights boardwalk in NJ! Italian's love this as much as it being assumed that they're all mobbed up! Now Bravo has NJ Housewives...who are all Italian too....living lives of decadence, luxury and always paying cash! Hating each other while spending thousands on more gold necklaces and their version of bling-bling.

The husbands are all short stocky Tony Soprano ( stereo ) types without job descriptions ( IRS problems? Waste management? ) and never explain where their wealth comes from. This is in Northern Jersey....and the same stomping grounds that the Sopranos was filmed in.

For those who aren't fans of Snooki, Sarah's future running mate:

The cast of MTV's Jersey Shore may have moved out of New Jersey, but the tanned crew still seems to find trouble wherever they are.

According to Radaronline.com, star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has gotten into another bar fight, while shooting an episode in Miami. According to witnesses, Snooks and costar Jenn "JWOWW" Farley were hanging out at club Oceans 10, when they were approached by a man trying to pick them up. When the girls turned him down, he allegedly stole Snooki's drink. Soon after, a friend of the Casanova came over to the girls' table and asked for an apology -- which sent Snooki into a rage. The poof-tastic reality star allegedly lunged at the guy, slapping him numerous times, then throwing food and drinks on him. The man reciprocated by dousing Snooki with his own cocktail.

Fortunately for us, MTV cameras were there catch the whole thing, which means we'll be seeing it all for ourselves when the new season of Jersey Shore premieres this summer.

Snooki is no stranger to bar altercations, as she was infamously punched off her bar stool while filming last season. The episode never ran on MTV due to its violent nature.

On the other hand, I do not see how someone cannot see that America has far more good days than bad ones. Even with all of our problems throughout history, our standard of living and quality of life is still better than a huge majority of the other nations.

That's what makes it exceptional, that's why many feel fortunate and thankful to be here.

Maybe a bit better than Somalia....but likely on the same plane as...Venezuela? Lights out...for hours at a time...daily.

Well, I hate to nit-pick but:

condemn: v
1. to express strong disapproval of
2 to pronounce guilty, to convict.
3. to sentence
4.to destine to an unhappy fate
5. to declare unfit for use or uninhabitable

I'll concede that you have condemned no one in the sense of usages 2-5.


However, your professed confusion has led you to strongly disapprove of the right in one comment after another on this site.

I really don't understand what is exceptional about America. We've had our good days (some very good) and bad (some very bad) like any other nation.

You're right, America has had it's ups and downs.



Personally, I have to be very careful of how I view America. In my case, it's a matter of avoiding idolatry.

Have to believe that America is considered a stand in for Israel until the temple is rebuilt.

Nope. America's not "Israel". But historically, our nation's laws and unspoken code of ethics has been largely grounded in Biblical morality.

highboy said...

Just a couple of points:

1. Bush did his job, and actually performed his Constitutional duty of keeping this country safe. Libs can whine about the cost all they want, but the cost wouldn't be nearly so taxing if we weren't trying to socialise everything else at the same time.
2. Liberals are mad at Obama because he's not fulfilling any of his promises, like taking away the ban on stabbing babies in the head with scissors on their way out of the womb, not pressing through a public option in the healthcare package, etc.
3. If people haven't figured out by now what a joke this president is, they simply are lying to themselves. Its that simple. He's not done one single thing that has benefited this country in any way, there is no tangible evidence that our economy is getting anything but worse, his heathcare package is a gateway to national healthcare, a system that has failed literally everywhere, and he would rather spend money trillions on pipe dream energy research that won't pay off for at least 15 years while the country goes bankrupt and pays 20$ for a gallon of gas.
