One of my high school classmates, who is a die-hard Democrat, recently posted this cartoon from the Miami Herald on his Facebook page:
Well, reading the sign held up by the Jackass, I have to wonder: why, when the Democrats held large majorities in both Houses of Congress, including a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, didn’t they actually do any of that? The real reason, of course, is that it’s all a lie: those are the things the Democrats campaign on doing, but, once in office, they never actually try to do them. A shorter term for it would be populism.
Cut spending, the first item on the list? In FY2007, the last year that the Republicans controlled the Congress, total federal outlays were 19.7% of GDP, which was way too high, and produced a $160.7 billion deficit. Since the Democrats won control of the Congress, total federal outlays have shot up, to 20.8% of GDP in FY2008, when George Bush was still our President, to over 24% every single year since Barack Obama was inaugurated. President Obama’s proposed budget calls for total spending of 23.3% for FY2013 and in the mid 22% range for as far into the future as he can project, including years in which he projects steady economic growth and that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will be only memories.¹
Even the last item, the one the Democrats like so much, Raise Taxes for the Super Rich, the Democrats could have done, in 2009 and 2010, when they had solid majorities, but they didn’t even try! The 2001/2003 tax cuts were scheduled to expire at the end of 2010, yet the Democrats who controlled the eleventy-first Congress never even brought a bill to retain those cuts for everyone below $250,000, and let them expire for above that income — one of Mr Obama’s 2008 campaign promises — until after the 2010 elections, after they had already lost. Warren Buffett, the billionaire who says that we should raise taxes on the rich, runs a corporation, Berkshire-Hathaway, which owes the IRS a billion dollars in back taxes, dating from 2002, because he’s nothing but a hypocrite.
Cut small business taxes? The President’s FY2013 budget proposal calls for increasing taxes on above $250,000 earners, but 2/3 of those filers are actually unincorporated small businesses! The Democrats say that they want to cut taxes for small businesses, but actually propose increases on taxes which impact small businesses, and then let companies like Berkshire-Hathaway, run by an Obama supporter, withhold their legally-owed taxes for years and years.
Cut corporate welfare and big business subsidies? Most people have heard of Solyndra, because it failed so badly after Obama Administration porkulus plan loan guarantees, but it turned out that there were 11 other solar-energy firms which did the same damned thing, all failing, because the Democrats weren’t ending corporate welfare or business subsidies, but simply moved the subsidies to companies which they favored.
The people for whom good, rank-and-file working class Democrats have been voting for all of these years have been lying to them, lying to them all along. They say the things their voters want to hear, and then once they have their votes in their pockets, don’t do any of the things their constituents voted for them to do.
This is the part that Republicans just don’t understand. The Democrats treat their supporters like absolute idiots, lying to them continually, and yet their supporters keep supporting them! Republicans lied to their supporters, too, about cutting spending, but that resulted in the abandonment of the Republicans in the 2006 elections, and the rise of the TEA Party faction in 2010, something the Republican leadership never anticipated, and some Republican officeholders discovered wasn’t to their liking in the 2010 primary elections.

In debates that I had, primarily on liberal websites, about allowing same-sex couples to marry legally, my primary concern was that including same-sex relationships under the definition of marriage would open a legal hornet’s nest, in which a same-sex couple could sue a church which refused to perform a wedding ceremony for them. My friends on the left ridiculed that idea, saying that the First Amendment would prevent that. Well, the following story isn’t that, but it’s creeping closer:
Obama Administration Mandates Religious Employers Cover Contraception Cost, Catholic Bishops Furious
Posted on January 20, 2012 at 8:21pm by Tiffany Gabbay
The Catholic Bishops of the United States are reportedly furious over what they call the “literally unconscionable” decision by the Obama Administration to require that contraception be included in virtually all health plans provided by religious-affiliated institutions to their employees.
The announcement means that the mandate and its narrow exemption will not change. Rather, there will be a delay in enforcement against some employers.
“In effect, the president is saying we have a year to figure out how to violate our consciences,” said Cardinal-designate Timothy M. Dolan, archbishop of New York and president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Social-Service Agencies Say They Need Broader Exemption From Requirements on Contraceptives
By KRIS MAHER, SEPTEMBER 29, 2011
Catholic organizations have ramped up opposition to new federal health-care requirements to cover contraceptive services, saying the rules may prompt them to drop insurance or shut down.
Beginning next August, employers have to provide coverage for contraception and other preventive services for women such as screening for gestational diabetes and domestic-violence counseling under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, part of the federal health-care law passed in 2010.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services exempted religious organizations that employ and serve people of the same faith from having to provide contraception services, but this exception has been criticized as too narrow by church leaders, as well as some members of Congress.
“Jesus himself, or the Good Samaritan of his famous parable, would not qualify as ‘religious enough’ for the exemption, since they insisted on helping people who did not share their view of God,” said Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston.
Catholic social-service agencies, universities, hospitals and nursing homes wouldn’t be exempt because they frequently employ and serve non-Catholics. “The point is we’re being asked to pay for services that go against our beliefs,” said Pittsburgh Bishop David A. Zubik in an interview. “This looks like the government telling us what we can and can’t believe and what we can and can’t do.”
It’s a perfect storm: the Affordable Care Act requires employers to provide health care coverage, and the Department of Health and Human Services is trying to push regulations which would require religious organizations to include items to which they are theologically opposed. And it’s also the perfect double-cross: the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops supported President Obama’s health care reform legislation, with only the proviso that freedom of conscience exemptions be included; they were very happy with the Stupak Amendment, which specified that the ACA would not require abortion coverage. The Stupak Amendment was required to get a sufficient number of Democrats to vote to pass the legislation, but then it was stripped out in the Senate. The Bishops who had given their support to the bill as long as abortion wasn’t included. Then, in March 2010, well after the Senate cloture vote in December of 2009, they had to send a statement to parishioners, because the language prohibiting the forced coverage of abortion had been deleted:1
As long-time advocates of health care reform, the U.S. Catholic bishops continue to make the moral case that genuine health care reform must protect the life, dignity, consciences and health of all, especially the poor and vulnerable. Health care reform should provide access to affordable and quality health care for all, and not advance a pro-abortion agenda in our country. Genuine health care reform is being blocked by those who insist on reversing widely supported policies against federal funding of abortion and plans which include abortion, not by those working simply to preserve these longstanding protections.
- On November 7, the U.S. House of Representatives passed major health care reform that reaffirms the essential, longstanding and widely supported policy against using federal funds for elective abortions and includes positive measures on affordability and immigrants.
- On December 24, the U.S. Senate rejected this policy and passed health care reform that requires federal funds to help subsidize and promote health plans that cover elective abortions. All purchasers of such plans will be required to pay for other people’s abortions through a separate payment solely to pay for abortion. And the affordability credits for very low income families purchasing private plans in a Health Insurance Exchange are inadequate and would leave families financially vulnerable.
- Outside the abortion context, neither bill has adequate conscience protection for health care providers, plans or employers.
- Congressional leaders are now trying to figure out how the rules of the House and Senate could allow the final passage of a modified bill that would satisfy disagreements between House and Senate versions.
The Catholic bishops are trusting souls, and they are in the forgiveness business; perhaps they never expected that President Obama would double-cross them, but more worldly Catholics knew all along that such would happen.
And now the bishops are complaining that the Affordable Care Act will force them to abandon the Church’s position on artificial contraception, but those oh-so-compassionate and forgiving clerics brought it on themselves! By supporting increased federalization and control of health care coverage, for the good and noble motive of seeing to it that everybody had coverage, they put themselves and their Catholic institutions under the authority of people who have absolutely no qualms about abortion or paying for abortion or artificial contraception, and mandating its inclusion; the bishops gave to Democratic politicians and federal bureaucrats who believe that the Church’s position on contraception is ridiculous authority over health care insurance offered by Catholic institutions.
The bishops are pretty much left with two options: they can support the Republican presidential nominee, since every Republican candidate has promised to do away with the health care reform legislation, or they can pray that the Supreme Court, which has taken the case and will decide on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, will declare it to be unconstitutional. With five of the Justices being Catholics,2 it’s always possible that the Obama Administration’s position on this will be more encouragement for them to toss out the whole abysmal thing.

Republicans across the nation are learning quite well that one of the best tools in the shed for defeating Democrats is to tie Barack Obama to those Democrats. And Democrats are learning that as well. They are avoiding him like the plague in their election and re-election bids. Tim Kaine, former DNC head, former Virginia Governor, does not want to be seen with Obama. Claire McCaskill, Democrat Senator from Missouri who supported Obama in 2008 does not want to be seen with Obama. Many other Democrats don’t want to be seen with Obama and don’t want Obama to be tied to them. I saw an ad from a Virginia Democrat candidate talking about how Republicans are trying to compare him with Obama. The candidate himself said “That’s quite a stretch. I’m Pro-Life and Pro-Gun.”
As a matter of fact, Obama’s political campaign trips to North Carolina and Virginia had many stops planned that were subsequently dropped because the Democrat candidates in those areas didn’t want any ties at all to Obama or his “jobs” campaign trick. Because in all the “battleground” districts and states nationwide, both the Republicans and the Democrats know tying Barack Obama to the Democrat is like tying a boat anchor to Sham and still expecting Sham to win the Belmont Stakes. The idea of having a photo of Obama and these Democrats together strikes fear in the hearts of the Democrats, even this far out ahead of the election.

I previously reported on Obama’s record low polling in the NBC/Wall Street Journal and ABC/Washington Post polls, and dug into the NBC/WSJ poll to show the demographics favoring Obama and the Democrats, which meant Obama’s record underwater level was actually worse than the poll showed. Last night’s Hot Air Quotes of the Day just added to the devastating polling details.
The most recent Gallup poll, which also showed record low, underwater polling for Obama, has major bad news for the Democrats. Gallup’s month-to-month ratings showed Obama reaching new record lows in August among overall at 41 percent, Hispanics at 48 percent, and Whites at 33 percent, while tying his record low among Blacks at 84 percent.
While the Black approval rating has only dropped 8 points from its high of 92 in February 2009, the decline among Hispanics and Whites has been precipitous, with the Hispanic approval dropping 27 points from its February 2009 rating of 75 and 34 points from its high of 82 later in 2009, and White approval dropping 25 points from its February 2009 approval high of 58. What does this mean for Obama, and more importantly, for Democrats overall? In short, it means trouble and in a major way.

And it’s still true today.

Let’s talk about Hobbits, what they are and what they are not.
Hobbits are not adventure-seekers. They do not have their heads in the clouds. Hobbits do not pine for excitement or glory or any other nonsense. Hobbits prefer to stay in their community, working the ground and going about their business living in peace.
Hobbits are not powerful warriors like the dwarves. Hobbits are not ageless magical woodland folk like the elves. Hobbits do not have kingdoms and powerful armies like the humans. Hobbits do not have great magic like the wizards. Hobbits are not famous or especially superior at anything, actually.
But hobbits like Frodo, Samwise, Merry, Pippin are willing to defy the odds and stoicly trudge to what may well be their doom for the greater good. They are in very much over their heads in every measure, being far inferior in practically every measure to their non-hobbit companions.
And that’s why Hobbits and the TEA Party are so similar.
The TEA Party folk are not wealthy or famous or powerful or overly political. The TEA Party folk do not have an overwhelming military or any true structure. They would rather stay in their communities and go about their lives in peace.
And that’s why Liberals and the Republican Ruling Class have chosen to derisively call TEA Party folk Hobbits.
Oops. Big mistake. The Liberals and Ruling Class Republicans accidentally got the simile right.
Hobbits are not the best at anything. They are not elite. In fact they are among the least of the people. The same goes for the TEA Party to a great extent. All the way down the line, the Hobbits and the TEA Party align remarkably well. Even to the actions, courage, and results. Frodo, Samwise, Merry, Pippen, just as Bilbo before them, leave their comfort zones and deny themselves, striking out into dangerous and unfamiliar territory specifically for the benefit of the world around them.
And in the end, the Hobbits are the rescuers of the “elite” and the rescuers of the world. So, yeah, we accept the term “Hobbits” that the Liberals and RCRs foolishly meant as derisive. We wear that moniker as a badge of honor. And we hope to live up to the Selfless Valor of the Hobbit.

The media turned Palin’s bus tour into a celebrity chase, instead of covering it as a political event. As a political event, Palin’s travelogues show that it’s been pretty low-key. She has not made grand speeches or committed to a campaign, but instead is using the tour to raise political action committee funds — in the same way other announced and unannounced candidates have done for months, with little or no comparable national media coverage.
So why does Palin rate such a press gaggle and make headlines for her tour? Palin generates ratings and page views; she sells advertising. She puts money in the pockets of media outlets. And her bus tour has exposed the media’s craving for all things Palin, even while they treat her as a fringe character in American politics. The bus tour puts that paradox on display for all to see.
Mr Morrissey continues on to say “In fact, Palin could conceivably do more to influence the election as a kingmaker on the outside, especially with the power of her PAC, than a primary candidate on the inside.” Here’s where I will disagree. A kingmaker is a puppet master. A “made” king answers to the kingmaker. And that’s George Soros, not Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin is not the good version of the evil George Soros — the man who is working to take down the US and create a godless, socialist one-world government. Yes, SarahCuda will indeed have a major, MAJOR, impact on US elections in 2012 whether she runs or not (and as far as I’m concerned, Mama Grizzly is indeed going to run), because she articulates the position of a huge amount of the “Average Joe’s” positions and she is very clear in her stated goal for the direction of this nation: back to when this nation was its greatest, back to the vision of our Founders and Framers. And the Left and the Ruling Class Republicans cannot let that message ring out. They run the joint, they know better than you or me, they know we need someone to lead us around by the nose. But she has a servant’s heart and not a master’s heart, and therein lies the difference between a Godly activist leader and a kingmaker, and the difference between a God-fearing, well-grounded woman of the people and the Ruling Class.
Morrissey appends his Hot Air article with a Byron York article discussing another area the lamestream media is missing the boat on Sarah Palin.
One thing many viewers have probably missed in all the horse-race speculation is that Palin is perfectly willing to discuss her positions on key issues, if anyone wants to ask. In fact, in recent days, weeks, and months, we’ve seen a lot of policy commentary from the former Alaska governor.
For example, during the bus trip, Palin took a stand on an issue that is crucial for candidates considering a run in the Iowa caucuses. “I think that all of our energy subsidies need to be re-looked at today and eliminated,” Palin told RealClearPolitics. “We’ve got to allow the free market to dictate what’s most efficient and economical for our nation’s economy.”
SarahCuda has been talking issues and policy from the get-go; it’s just not covered in the mainstream media because giving it proper coverage would defeat Teh Narrative. What is the narrative? The narrative is that Sarah Palin isn’t all that bright (Ronald Reagan, the amiable dunce), doesn’t know the issues, has no grounding in policy, isn’t schooled, has no experience, is gaffe-tastic (party like it’s 1773). And it isn’t just the Liberals and the media (but I repeat myself) pushing Teh Narrative; it’s the Republican Aristocracy. Charles Krauthammer telling SarahCuda to leave the room (while the men talk about substantive issues), saying she isn’t “schooled,” saying she’s not a serious candidate, saying it’s not “her turn.”
Sarah Palin knows the issues, talks the issues, talks foreign policy, domestic policy, fiscal policy, health care policy, social policy. She speaks with historical accuracy (party like it’s 1773), geographical accuracy (you can see Russia from Alaska). She understands economics far better than any Big Government Keynesian ever will. She understands the harm of over-regulation, to our freedom as the Founders and Framers envisioned and to our economic survival. She has taken on corrupt and criminal Democrats and Republicans alike, many of whom are in prison as a result. And she handles herself very well with hard-hitting media interviews. And she has already proven — in Alaska and nationally — that she can take over a debate and come out of it as if she were the only one there. But that’s not what the lamestream media (who are in the pockets of Democrats and George Soros) or the RCRs want people to know, with their attempts at “gotcha” questioning, “jot and tittle” orgasmic rectal examination, cover-up of her statements to claim she doesn’t know anything.
If the public actually got to know who Sarah Palin is and what Sarah Palin understands and what Sarah Palin stands for, Teh Narrative would die. And so would the Leftist, the Ruling Class, the Media agenda.
Levin took issue with much of the common criticisms of Palin, particularly those concerning whether or not she can win the 2012 election and how she left her governorship post early, which is normal for presidential candidates, Levin says.
“So what is it? What’s the problem?” he said. “She’s solid on social issues. She’s solid on fiscal issues. She’s solid against these subsidies against big companies – in other words, she is not a corporatist. She’s not a crony or a believer in that. She’s solid on taxes and spending. I’m just confused. She’s solid on Israel. She’s solid on the military. She’s solid with respect to our allies. Is there some big issue that’s disqualifying? What – because the liberals don’t like her? …
“I’m getting sick and tired, as I said yesterday, last week and I’ve said over the months – I’m getting sick and tired of these smears by Krauthammer against her,” Levin said. “He’s a thoroughly decent man, I understand, but he doesn’t seem very decent in this regard and I don’t know why. He’s certainly owes us a column or a better explanation, doesn’t he? He wants to influence the outcome.”
UPDATE: Kimberly Strassel weighs in with her revisionist foolishness (via Hot Air Headlines).
Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty—all have already been through the wringer, and at the hands of conservatives focused on obtaining a competent nominee. If Mrs. Palin wants the most powerful job on the planet, she shouldn’t be averse to the same critical questioning…
Whatever you think of Mr. Romney’s health-care plan, at least he’s got one. Mr. Gingrich may not be brave on Medicare reform, but he’s willing to get into specifics. What is Mrs. Palin’s position on Social Security? What’s her idea of corporate tax reform? How would she handle Pakistan? Good leaders inspire, but they also perspire over the painful nitty-gritty of policy. If Mrs. Palin gets in, she starts from way behind.
Kimberly, seriously, why don’t you actually do something like journalist research? I mean it’d only take a few minutes of your time to answer your own questions. But that isn’t what you’re about, is it? Sarah Palin has already answered your questions… and before you asked them.
I have issues with Sarah Palin’s Tenther position in some aspects, according to the colloquial definition of the term. There are issues Sarah Palin definitely describes as wrong but will leave it up to the states to decide if they want to be wrong or right. That’s the colloquial version of Tentherism. Granted, Palin said even states shouldn’t be regulating like they do, but Palin still leaves too much in the hands of states to steal from We the People when We the People should be foremost and states a distant second (with the Feds being a rare afterthought).
But that’s not what Kimberly Strassel is talking about. She’s talking about “what is Sarah’s position and plan on issues where Sarah clearly stated her position and plan on issues that I won’t tell you about, much less look up myself?” Good luck with that, Kimberly. The dead-tree media just doesn’t have the sway it used to. Sarah Palin already destroyed your concern trolling before you tried your concern trolling. And Sarah is the ultimate “retail” campaigner. The Talking Points (Memo) approach to misinformation is falling apart with the “unwashed masses” who actually vote.

Since the radical Leftist government wants to keep track of Right Wing Extremist™ activities, I figured I’d help them out. Here are some of the things the Self-Proclaimed Right Wing Extremist™ blogs are saying:
Beers with Demo on Indiana eradicating the US Fourth Amendment:
One gets the sense that the ruling views the 4th amendment as somewhat anachronistic in that the threat of brutish red coats violating the sovereignty of our property is long past and that any apparent violations can be addressed in the refined civility of the court room. There may no longer be any red coats but we don’t see how that is justification for relaxing our guard against tyranny via the unwarranted search and seizure of our property by the government or anyone else for that matter.
Common Sense Political Thought on more of Socialist Noam Chomsky’s idiocy (this time regarding the Islamic Terrorist bin Laden):
He could have been shot in the back of the head without it being “execution-style,” if he happened to turn around in fear. But, quite frankly, if the SEALs had him down on his knees, and did shoot him in the back of the head, it was absolutely the right thing to do. Capturing him alive, and bringing him to the United States or anywhere else for trial would have led to years of outlandish legal actions and provided the impetus for God only knows how many terrorist kidnappings and attacks in “exchange” for the captured al Qaeda leader.
“The Palestinian right of return” is NOT an explanation when someone responds “right of return?”
I thought the interviewer had at least said something like “the ability for those Palestinians who use to live in the land that is now Israel to return to Israel.” Sure, the interviewer explained it a little more afterwards, and Cain reiterated that IT IS UP TO ISRAEL. Not seeing a big problem, there, if one ignores the automatic baggage. Anybody with some unbiased brain power knows that Israel, left to her own choices, is pretty good at surviving.
The Other McCain on AP’s disgraceful radically left-weighted polling:
‘That’s Not a Poll That’s Psy-Ops!’
So says Da Tech Guy about an Associated Press poll that surveyed nearly twice as many Democrats (35%) as Republicans (18%). You will perhaps not be surprised that this poll shows Obama with a 63% approval rating.
Speaking of “psy-ops” — psychological warfare — let me explain something: Nothing so sways the independent voter as bandwagon psychology.
On to those Right Wing Extremist™ blogs who are not self-proclaimed but just trying to hide it…
The Liberator Today discusses the TEA Party and Presidential Issues (and I’m not in full agreement, and that’s obvious when you read the article).
Michelle Malkin writes about consummate insider and Statist Republican Newt Gringrich trying to make like an outsider.
The Wintery Knight pushes for a Michele Bachmann Presidential candidacy.
Caffeinated Thoughts explains why same-sex marriage is not a civil rights issue.
Secondhand Smoke discusses the ObamaNation threatening to cut off Indiana’s poor from Medicaid since Indiana cut off the abortion mill Planned Parenthood.
There, I think I helped the radical Leftist government keep track of the Right Wing Extremist™ blogs enough… and helped sane people realize what’s going on with the radical Leftist, America-hating ObamaNation Administration of late.
