What Would Reagan Think?
March 22nd, 2010 3:13 am

I couldn’t help but think, as I watched C-SPAN throughout the day Sunday, “If Ronald Reagan were alive today, what would he say to the American people about the actions of the D-baggers on Capitol Hill?” Then I remembered I needn’t wonder… for in 1961, Reagan told America what he thought of this health insurance bill disaster:

Timeless wisdom from a great leader. America sure needs a man like him again… now, more than ever.

Obamacare’s Magic Math
March 17th, 2010 5:14 am

The Left ridiculed Bush, calling him an idiot… then they turn around and worship a man who thinks there are 57 states in the U.S., that the treatment for asthma is a breathalyzer, says he sees dead veterans in the audience during Memorial Day ceremonies, claimed tornadoes in Kansas killed 10,000 people, doesn’t know the difference between “corps” and “corpse“… and this:

Perhaps that extra 2,900% will come from the savings on breathalyzers for corpse men he sees at rallies in the additional 7 states.

“By Any Means Necessary…”
March 16th, 2010 5:12 pm

So Congress has gone from voting on legislation without even reading it

…to the threat of passing legislation without even voting on it.

What’s next? Enforcing legislation that hasn’t even been drafted…

Lucky Number Seven

Today marks the 7th anniversary of the first post on this blog. Thanks to all of you who have put up with these rants for the last 7 years.

Assuming we can survive the rest of Obama’s single term, here’s to many more…

After 16 long years, it appears the D-baggers are ready to again trade seats in Congress to try and get their disasterous and highly unpopular healthcare bill passed. The Community Organizer in Chief is set to read a teleprompter tomorrow telling the D-baggers in Congress to go forward with the nuclear option to pass the healthcare bill in the face of massive opposition.

All I have to say is… good for them. Go teach those stupid constituents a lesson or two about the way things work in Chicago Washington politics.

Oh, but a word of caution… just watch where your party is standing when you detonate the damn thing. It may be generations before they collect all the pieces.

UPDATE: Obama campaigned on change… but as expected, he’s just another politician who says one thing on the campaign trail and does just the opposite once given the keys to the office…

Couple of money quotes from the clip…

“My understanding of the Senate is that you need 60 votes to get something significant to happen…”


“The bottom line is that our healthcare plans are similar, the question once again is, ‘Who can get it done?’ Who can build a movement for change? This is an area where we’re gonna have to have a 60 percent majority in the Senate and the House in order to actually get a bill to my desk. We’re gonna have to have a majority to get a bill to my desk. That is not just a 50 plus one majority.


“You gotta break outta what I call the sort of 50 plus one pattern of presidential politics. Maybe you eke out a victory of 50 plus one, then you can’t govern.” You know, you get Airforce One, there are a lot of nice perks, but you can’t deliver on healthcare. We’re not going to pass universal healthcare with a 50 plus one strategy.


“Fixing our healthcare system… If we want to transform the country though, that requires a sizeable majority.”

There’s only one appropriate response to anything Obama says…

UPDATE 2:And so it goes…
