We need serious people for serious problems

Stilton Jarlsberg had a thoughtful commentary about finding the middle ground between Obama’s head in the sand policies and the exploding head diatribes of Donald Trump.

“There is room – and necessity – for our nation to find the middle ground between Barack Hussein Obama’s denials and Donald Trump’s bellicose bombast. It is time – indeed, well past time – for all of this to be dealt with seriously, by serious people.

“A personal sidebar: today, I had lunch in a McDonald’s which is very near a large mosque in our neighborhood. It wasn’t crowded inside, and I took note of the other people who were there. The staffers behind the counter were happily speaking to each other in Spanish. A woman wearing a headscarf was eating and looking at a video on her computer (I admit it – I looked to see if it was a “how to” on building “clocks,” but it appeared to be a soap opera). Nearby, two Asian men chatted in what I presume was Chinese. And the McDonald’s itself was nicely decorated for Christmas (by name) and, despite being next door to a mosque, advertising the distinctly non-Halal McRib.

“As we were leaving, I held the door for a young mother wearing a head scarf as she entered while Mrs. Jarlsberg helped guide the woman’s baby stroller through the door. The woman smiled and thanked us.

“There’s no big punchline to this story, other than that everyone was getting along just fine. At a McDonald’s. And it made me wish that we could all take a deep breath and turn down the nonsensical rhetoric a bit on both sides. Not closing our eyes to very real dangers; just remembering that keeping our eyes open should have rewards which go beyond surveillance.”

Pistol Pete posted an awesome collection of news video clips about RCOTUS’s Sunday Oval Office speech @ I grabbed this screenshot from one of them.

I caught these two on Facebook:

Leading from Behind: Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton [2:16]

CNN: ISIS will laugh at Obama’s oval office speech [2:55]

You know who they didn’t laugh at? George W. Bush. He was a serious man who handled the serious GWOT problem with prayerful leadership. He made tough decisions and dealt with the inevitable criticisms gracefully. In the end, we won the War in Iraq.  Then, President Kumbaya swanned into office, removed our troops prematurely, and handed the whole region over to ISIS.

This is what a REAL Commander in Chief looks like

MEDIA FAIL: It’s all about PARTY

Remember all those times we were accused of being dirty racists for wanting to know about Obama’s past?  Remember how the media never ever let Dan Quayle off the hook for that time he misspelled “potato”?

CARSON first black prez college

Obama was touted as the “smartest kid in the class”, “smartest man in any room”, and “smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency”, but there is absolutely no evidence that any of that is remotely true.

He has never allowed his academic transcripts and various test scores to be made public. But if reporters dig hard enough, they can often get such things leaked. The MSM didn’t bother; they just kept repeating the “smartest” meme and said voters who wanted to see documentation were being racists.

The evidence we have public access to suggests Obama is nothing special in the brains department. Yes, he graduated from Harvard, but so did both George W. Bush and Mitt Romney. Obama earned a law degree; Bush earned a business degree; Romney earned both simultaneously.

Remember when Lefties proffered as proof of Dubya’s alleged stupidity that he pronounced nuclear “nucular”? Remember when they totally ignored it when Barry O said “corpse-man” in the same speech where he got the corpsman’s name wrong?

I have a DVD in which a Ph.D. in Nuclear Science also pronounces the word “nucular” … repeatedly. It’s nothing more than a regional dialect thing. So far as I know, “corpse-man” is just absurdly, offensively wrong, particularly coming from the Commander-in-Chief who should know how to pronounce military ranks, dontchathink?

Obama reads “Corpsman” as “Corpse Man”, Gets the Man’s Name Wrong [:54]

The MSM’s faux outrage over Ben Carson suggesting he was once offered a “full scholarship” to West Point falls flat with anyone who remembers how they ignored the time Obama said that there are 57 states in the U.S., and the time he said that the leader of Canada is a “president”, and those times when he said that the language of Austria is “Austrian” and the language of Afghanistan is Arabic, and that time he said that America is “20 centuries” old, and that time when he said 10,000 people had been killed by a Kansas tornado that actually killed 12, and that time he credited 1965 Selma march for inspiring his birth in 1961.

The stinking media even yawned that time he said it would be “unprecedented” for the Supreme Court to invalidate a law passed by Congress. I mean … really? Shouldn’t a former “professor of constitutional law” know more about … you know … constitutional law?

Yes, Obama was elected president of the Harvard Law Review, but it was at a time when popularity and being black mattered more than scholarship. He had no scholarship to speak of, having published only one short, poorly written article for the HLR.

After graduation, he joined an undistinguished law firm, where he tried no cases. He was also never more than a part time instructor at the University of Chicago Law School. The tenured law professors reportedly hated him because he was “lazy, unqualified.” One said that he “had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building.”

Obama was also lauded for his elocutionary skills. But when he’s off the teleprompter, he often rambles, loses his train of thought, and says “uh uh uh” a lot. His beautifully written first autobiography was demonstrably written mostly by Bill Ayers and his second book is as ineloquent as his off-prompter speechifying.

Giving Dubya credit where credit is due

Nigerian activist and attorney, Emmanuel Ogebe, says it will be President George W. Bush who

“will really be remembered as the president who had the most impact on Africa of the last three presidents. I think there’s no doubt about it.”

“When President Bush visited Africa he launched an initiative – a presidential emergency program for AIDS relief, which was meant to help combat a major pandemic that was taking so many lives.”

“President Bush actually did something that was relevant to the crisis that was facing the continent at the time,” he said.

“It was sad for us to see President Obama go to Africa and for the second year running his primary objective was sexual imperialism, where he was calling on Africans to legalize gay marriage.”

“I had a lot of Africans say, ‘Well, when our presidents go to America we don’t say to you to legalize polygamy even though we have a lot of polygamy in Africa and we think it’s a great idea, but we don’t come to your country and tell you to do that.’”

Bush launched PEPFAR in 2004 with an initial goal of treating two million HIV-infected people in 15 hard-hit countries, 12 of them in Africa, and caring for 10 million infected people and AIDS orphans.

The program continued and was expanded under the Obama administration, but true to form, President Petty Pants and Co. have shown no interest in giving credit to anyone but themselves.

2014_09 25 Kerry takes credit for PEPFAR

From SecState Kerry’s speech to UNAIDs: “… back in the 1990s, back when Senator Bill Frist and I first began working together on this issue … thanks to the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, which grew out of our initial efforts in the Senate I am proud to say … last year, I was honored to stand with President Obama as he announced that PEPFAR had not only met but exceeded his goal.”

Major Garrett does his job

2015_07 Iran is still holding American hostage

At yesterday’s Iran deal presser, CBS’s Major Garrett asked Obama about the four Americans that Iran is still holding hostage and why their release wasn’t part of the overall agreement.  His Lordship was not pleased and snarled at Garrett, “You should know better.”

Garrett’s question and Obama’s response [3:30]

2015_07 15 Media humps WH - Iran presser

From Buck Sexton’s Facebook page:

President Obama’s response to Major Garrett today was snide, arrogant, and completely unbecoming of the Office of the President.

  • You can’t ask this President a real question without being scolded.
  • You can’t interrupt the administration’s victory dance on this calamitous Iran deal without being punished.
  • It’s preposterous to read the commentary from many on this who say the question was “disrespectful to Obama.”

First of all, the question was completely legitimate. Not everything is about how awesome Obama needs to look all the time.

But more importantly – with 5 seconds of searching, you can find the kind of questions the press used to ask of President Bush, like this undermining, loaded question tossed at him back in 2006 that accuses him of being a liar and a warmonger:

“QUESTION: I’d like to ask you, Mr. President — your decision to invade Iraq has caused the deaths of thousands of Americans and Iraqis, wounds of Americans and Iraqis for a lifetime.

Every reason given, publicly at least, has turned out not to be true. My question is: Why did you really want to go to war? From the moment you stepped into the White House, your Cabinet officers, former Cabinet officers, intelligence people and so forth — but what’s your real reason? You have said it wasn’t oil, the quest for oil. It hasn’t been Israel or anything else. What was it?”

That’s what disrespect looks like.

The FACTS about the Bush-Obama deficits

There’s a lot of crap circulating the internet about how the great and noble Barack fixed what that turrible Bushitler guy did to our national finances. Here are the real facts in one simple graphic.

Bush v Obama deficits

  • 2007: When Democrats took majority control of the House AND the Senate, the deficit was below $0.2 Trillion.
  • 2010: After four years controlling federal spending, Democrats had increased the 2007 Republican deficit by 600%.
  • 2015: Republicans are slowly bringing the deficit down, but the damage to the DEBT is cumulative. As of May, it’s $18 Trillion. Democrats are responsible for the lion’s share of it.
