A Little Perspective



I'm not ready to give up. Despite what the Obamedia tells us, the race is not over. Remember, they were calling the 2004 race for Kerry right up into election day and polls had Kerry up by 8 points. Now, 4 years later, I have to believe that polling is even more difficult with increased cell phone use and just about everybody having caller ID. So don't believe the hype, it's not over. Still, I know that this time is different. There is an unprecedented push from multiple fronts to get this enigma called Obama, elected. The level to which media elites, celebrities and formerly respected news sources have become volunteer PR firms for Obama, is breathtaking and completely defies logic. Thanks to an 8-year campaign of Bush hatred, both from the media and the Demoncratic party, I believe the Dems could have run a tree stump (about as qualified as Obama), and been in the same situation. Journalistic geniuses like Chris Mathews would be extolling the many virtues of the stumps bark texture, shape and weight, and then tell us how it will change the world for the better with it's fantastic "stump" speeches. Even though I acknowledge the fact that somewhere around 90% of journalists in the MSM are lefties, it still shocks me that they sacrifice a good story and their integrity to provide cover for the man and ideology they obviously worship. I can't help but wonder how this race, or the attitude of the country for that matter, would be different if we had a truly independent and objective media.

Oh well, chalk up another victory for our fine education system - Bill Ayers and Obama style, right out of the Marxist playbook. Through leftist indoctrination, schools do more social engineering than teaching fundamentals. Combine that with a few hours per day of the fine television programming provided from leftist network executives, a little sex, drugs and rock and roll and you get an army of simpletons who will vote for anything that might look good on the front of People Magazine - Obama. That explains the youth vote, but what about the millions of Americans that should know better? My theory is that many of them are sixties leftovers; trying to lay one more groovy trip on the world man. Others are misguided, guilt ridden, limousine liberals who are oppressed with their own success and seek absolution by voting for the black guy. And then of course, there's the 95% of African Americans who will vote for anyone who shares similar melanin content. Martin Luther King Jr. is spinning - his dream has become a nightmare.

So what to make of all of this? While I will hold out hope for a McCain/Palin victory, the fact is that it's quite possible, even likely, that The Twilight Zone we find ourselves in will continue and provide us with our first socialist government lead by Obama, Reid and Pelosi. And if the craziness continues into key senate races, there could be total, unchecked control by the most liberal and inexperienced president in history and followed by the lowest rated and corrupt congress in history. Wow! Before my head explodes, I have to remind myself that we had to endure 4 years of Carter before we could save the world with Reagan. So the silver lining exists. But the cultural tear continues to get worse.

So, if the unthinkable happens, I will continue the good fight until conservative ideology is shut down and deemed hate speech by Barry's thought police. Before that, I'll be a dutiful citizen, pay my increased taxes, probably cut staff in my business, sending more people to Barry's food lines and eventually, move my business to a more business friendly country. I then could send my extra cash to my friends and family in the U.S. military who's budget will be cut and will have to have bake sales to buy bullets - The lefties' favorite dream.

God Help Us!

I agree with you 100% Scud. But you forgot to include these other important warnings. The ones about the super volcano at Yellowstone erupting and the earth getting hit by a meteor.

scud said...

Oh yeah, better put on the tin foil hat! The flying saucer invasion might be starting soon too. Loon. That's OK, you go right ahead and vote for the king of nothing. You probably deserve to be unemployed.

gop victim said...

Mr. Scud, I must tell you, you're not the only one worried about the present state of political discourse in this country. I'm a tall, 6'4", black man and I was recently knocked to the ground by a small white woman upset by the Obama/Biden bumper sticker on my car. She then held me down, accused me of being with the Obama campaign and said she was going to teach me a lesson, At this point, she whipped out a tube of lipstick and proceeded to draw a backwards P, inside an outline of the state of Alaska on my face. I'm convinced this was a politically motivated attack, what do you think?

scud said...

I think you're probably a Kool-Aide gulping simpleton who believes the myth. Like I said, go ahead and vote for the guy. It proves what kind of pathetic waste you are. Yes, anyone stupid enough to vote for this joke, is a pathetic waste of a human being and I loath the fact that you're consuming oxygen that my grandchildren might someday need. Screw you.

Sorry for my anger, but the insanity, ironically makes me insane!

gop victim said...

Such anger, you're not a short white woman are you?

scud said...

Hahaha. no, but I'm dutifully carving a "B" followed by "666" in my cheek. Hey, anything to help the cause.

Jeff said...

Only the truest believer could attribute this failed presidency to "an 8-year campaign of Bush hatred" by "the media and the Demoncratic party." In late 2001, Bush enjoyed approval ratings in the 90s. The entire world extended its sympathy after the al Qaeda attack. George W. Bush had free reign to establish a new world order. He wasted it. When the president turned his attention to Iraq, both the Democrats and the media granted him the benefit of doubt. After UN weapons inspectors followed US intelligence leads through a series of dead ends, the media was willing to entertain the comical notion of mobile biological weapons labs. On the eve of the invasion, Bush was still highly regarded with approval ratings in the 70s. The war he wanted was made possible by both parties and a compliant media. That would change in the months ahead.

In July 2003, Cowboy Bush came out slingin' and dared a "few dead enders" to "bring it on." His cavalier remark prompted more violence and his job approval rating fell into the 60s. In August a bomb ripped the UN headquarters in Baghdad. Sergio Vieira de Mello was among the dead. Americans recognized what Bush could not: we marched headlong into a quagmire. Bush's approval fell to just over 50% - good enough to secure re-election but nowhere close to the mandate he claimed. After the election, Bush turned his attention to social security privatization. The public pushed back and his number continued to fall. It crashed after Katrina the following summer when Americans realized that incompetence was the defining trait of his presidency. Bush would never recover. You can point fingers at the media and the Democrats all you want. This presidency unraveled from the top. You have no one to blame but your buddy Dorkus W. Dildo.

Anonymous said...

Right Jeff. W is an idiot so lets vote in an arrogant, lying, inexperienced, socialist. Good plan. And legions of deceived cretins continue to march over the cliff by the millions. O-B-A-M-A!

Jeff said...

Anonymous: Socialism is government ownership of the means of production. You know when the Bush administration used public money to purchase equity in private banks? THAT'S socialism. By any sane definition, a restructured tax code - and, frankly, I want my cut - hardly fits the bill.

The McCain campaign is trying to paint Barack Obama as a socialist. We'll find out next Tuesday if the country accepts that notion. My gut tells me it will not. Here's the great thing about America: it has an amazing ability to fix itself. No, you shouldn't vote for Obama because he's "an arrogant, lying, inexperienced, socialist." You should vote for him because he's intelligent, steady and competent.

P.S. scud: thanks for the new post. This is my favorite blog on the Internets; it never stops giving. I have a feeling it will only improve during the Obama administration. Senator Franken will ensure that...

scud said...

Internets? are there more? maybe a secret, hidden one where lefties gather to collaborate on skewing facts and rewriting history? I would like to see that one.

Look, Bush hasn't been perfect. But his greatest problem in my view, has been his inability or unwillingness to fight back or explain his strategies and actions. His insistence on turning the other cheek and allowing his enemies to hammer him from all sides without answer, was a huge mistake. I also think he continued to try to buy appreciation and acceptance from the dems that hate him by allowing out of control spending bills and never controlling spending. Ultimately, you can't buy friends, loyalty or respect. He should have been tough, and combative when appropriate and shut down the spending. Oh well, McCain will do a better job.

gopguy said...

Yes Scud, there is another internet. It's the one that's made up of a "series of tubes". The bad new is, it can be clogged with information. The good news is, that these tubes are not limited to lefties only, but are open to everyone. They're Sen. Ted Steven's favorite tube system. A word of advice about using this service. It would be wise, if you've had any free, unclaimed work done on your personal property by government contractors to avoid putting that information in the tubes.

Jeff said...

Bush could use the Internets to explain his strategies, but that supposes he has one. The Surge(tm) was successful if the strategic plan was violence reduction, but we didn't wage war to reduce violence in Baghdad. I would love to hear Bush articulate his strategy. I suspect the military would, too. You're in tune with Republican talking points. What is Bush's strategy?

scud said...

No, that was my point. He hasn't been able to "splain hiselph" at all, or has been unwilling to because of his desire to stay above the fray. I wish he would have.

Libby said...

I'm excited. Like Jeff and my other liberal friends here, Obama promises to redistribute wealth, even by utilizing the SCOTUS if need be. I wouldn't be opposed to 100% taxation and we could all just suck on one huge government tit. That's paradise to me.

Obama '08

TK said...

You have to love some of the endorsements that Barry is getting: Iran, Hamas, Chavez, Castro, Farrakhan, etc. Couple that with his previous associations with trash like Ayers and Rev. Wright and you've got one Hell of a great candidate. Obama is garbage, pure and simple. To be sure, McCain is far from perfect but Obama will be this country's worst nightmare. Hopefully, the millions of educated, intelligent, taxpaying middle class Americans will make their collective voices heard in a week and send Obama back to obscurity where he belongs.

Top Two% said...

Like most of my conservative brethren, I wholeheartedly support John McCain in his effort to further consolidate the wealth of the country into the hands of the few.

DC said...

tk: we've seen this country's worst nightmare. His name is George W. Bush. So just relax. If Bush couldn't ruin this nation, nobody can.

scud said...

Oops. DC loses another history lesson. Apparently another victim of lefty media spin and revisionism. It's so sad to see another simple mind spit out the lunacy of the far left talking points. Pathetic. I'd wish you luck, but I'm afraid I'm beyond that. Instead, I wish you unemployment, under-bridge housing, nationalized healthcare (oxymoron), and around the block soup lines. 'Cause that's what you'll get.

spud said...

That's right DC. It's total revision on your part. Get real, just open your eyes and look around. Then you'll see that the country is at peace, the deficit's under control, housing market's booming, financial institutions are flourishing, employment's up, healthcare system's healthy, energy problem's solved and the stock market's in new territory. If you're willing to do all this, then and only then, can you accurately judge George W Bush's presidency.

Personally I think he's awesome!!

tk said...

Barry's got a lot of cash to spend. With $600,000,000 in campaign contributions, the little prick bought 30 minutes of prime air time tonight on all the major networks to talk about hisself and how sussessful he is. And the libs will have their collective noses pressed up against their plasma screens, weeping, and gulping it all down. What a crock. It's truly hard to believe how ANYONE with a functioning brain can buy into this idiot's crap.

Anonymous said...

You're right, tk, except for one thing; liberals typically don't have plasma screens because they're either unemployed or underemployed. All the same, they'll blankly stare at their cheap Magnavox TV's, hanging on every word from their New Found Reason For Living.

Wow, good one anonymous. Bet you worked on that snappy little comeback all afternoon.....

Bob said...

Twas The Night Before The Elections

'Twas the night before the elections
And all through the town
Tempers were flaring
Emotions all up and down

I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap
Had shut off the TV
Tired of all the political crap

When all of a sudden
There arose such a noise
I peered out my window
And saw Obama and his boyz

They had come for my wallet
They wanted my pay
To give to others
Who never worked a day

He snatched up my money
And quick as a wink
Jumped back on his bandwagon
As I gagged from the stink

He then rallied his henchmen
Who were pulling his cart
I could tell they were out
To tear my country apart

"On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Biden and Ayers
On Acorn, on Pelosi"
He screamed at the pairs

They took off for his cause
And as he flew out of sight
I heard him laugh at the whole nation that night
Because they wouldn't stand up and fight

So I leave you to think
On this one final note-
If you don't want socialism
Get your ass out and vote

As least as hard as you worked on your cut-&-paste Bob.

scud said...

That's pretty dang good!

I think Obamessiah might have overplayed his hand once again with his 30 minute self gratification fest. But he won't understand that because his enormous ego shadows him from being able to see the light on anything.

Jeff said...

Barry might have an enormous ego, but McCain has a sense of entitlement. Like Bob Dole before him, he thinks it's his turn to play President. That moment came and went in 2000 when Bush smeared him with Rovean delight. Eight years have passed. McCain seems so old I forget he's a Vietnam veteran. He should be at a VFW Hall reminiscing about the Normandy landing. Did you ever notice how much Presidents age in office? They enter young and spry and exit like John McCain. Well John McCain would enter like John McCain. Can you imagine the effects of age acceleration on that guy? Christ, he sleeps at State of the Union addresses and they're early in the evening. We'll find out Tuesday but I don't think Americans want to watch a nursing home reality show for the next four years...

knobgobbler said...

I don't know. A nursing home reality show might be better than the last eight years of Mr. Stupid Goes To Washington.

Norm Coleman said...

Dear Blind Loyal Supporter,

I'm sure you loath trial lawyers and frivolous lawsuits as much as me. However, there are times when the risks to matters of great importance force patriots like myself to turn to their vile assistance. I am of course referring to my floundering bid for reelection to the US Senate. Today, as my poll numbers continued to plummet, I made the decision to take up valuable court time to file a suit of defamation of character against Al Franken. This should not be viewed as an obvious desperate attempt to .... Oh fuck. Who am I kiddin'

Jeff said...

Uh-oh, Scud. Ben and Jerry are in the tank. If you vote on Election Day, you can get a free scoop in any one of their stores. But they don't have stores where Republicans live. I plugged in "Chippewa Falls" and it directed me to Minneapolis.

Chippewa Fallsers - Fallseans? How do you refer to a resident of Chippewa Falls? Anyway, Republicans out in the suburbs won't we motivated by free ice cream in the city, but a Minneapolis stoner might get off his couch for a Ben and Jerry's scoop. You ought to write an angry letter or whatever.

the proffessor said...

I believe the proper term is Chippewa Fallics.

norm coleman said...

Dear Real American,

Due to a recent development with my off-the-grid fund raising scheme, I am in need of your generosity. Apparently a wealthy Texan, who I thought was a true patriot (see Paul Kim), is welshing out on his promise of monetary support. This leaves a $75,000 gap in my campaign funds. A gap which you can help fill. Any amount you can give will be greatly appriciated. Just make the checks payable to my wife Laurie (wink wink).

Thanks again,
Your pal
Norm

P.S. I still my need a rent free place to live soon, so keep me in mind.

GOP Guy said...

Oh, no! Not you, Peggy? Say it ain't so. It is? You're in the tank? DAMN YOU, OBAMA!!!!!

Norm Coleman said...

Dear Supporter,

Seems like I may not need to crash at any of your houses after the upcoming election loss. I will be living in a federal prison instead. Who knew bribery of a Senator was against the law. Karl Rove assured me that everything was fair game with a permanent republican majority. Oh well, lesson learned.

Since I have nothing to lose now, I just want to say... Don't vote for that filthy hebe. Not unless you businessmen want Yom Kippur to be a PAYED holiday.

Keep Minnesota Christian!

Your Pal,
Norm

Jeff said...

McCain gets pawned. Try doing that to cool Barry. It won't work. He runs Linux...

Jeff said...

Seriously, do we want a president who doesn't validate his form data? I should think not.

president barack hussein obama said...

Hey Scud, don't worry. Since we're socialists now, the government will take care of everything.

Jeff said...

Scud: in 2004, your side argued that 50.1% was a mandate. It looks like Obama is around 52%. Is that a super-mandate? And remember when we argued that Bush overstepped his bounds with regard to signing statements and your side said "no, no, no." Well President-elect Obama has that authority now. And remember when we denounced the Bush administration for its extrajudicial spying inside the United States? The arguments you made in favor of that policy apply to President-elect Obama now. And remember when you argued that the vice president had congressional immunity because that office was in the legislative branch? Well Cheney's secret safe is in Biden's office now. My position remains unchanged but I look forward to watching Republicans argue against their former selves.

Jeff said...

Scud: On the way home from the Jet game we caught the end of the Vikings game on satellite radio. It was the Minnesota feed. Jesus. Talk about a bunch of homers. The play-by-play man frequently used the first person plural pronoun. "We need to do this. We need to do that..." Do you suit announcers out there in Minnesota? The game was called the Border Battle. Apparently, Minnesota borders Wisconsin. I suppose that shouldn't surprise me. They're all about cheese and you're all about butter.

Anonymous said...

Well, well, well, what a wonderful election, huh Jeff? I love what Ann Coulter wrote about Pennsylvania voters after Murtha won his congressional seat again: "It turns out they're not racists, they're retards."

Yes, indeed, 66,354,771 brain dead idiots, the Army Of The Deceived, bought it all. Lets pin all our hopes and dreams on a 47 year old, unaccomplished, inexperienced, racist, do-nothing, Marxist, Kenyan-born lawyer whom no one really knows much about. Born from trailer trash, associating with some of the worst hate-mongers around, sure, why not give him a try? Liberals always look to the government to somehow make their lives complete. And here comes Barry! The One. The king of all kings. Our future, the holy of holies. No doubt millions made their decision that he's the right choice after seeing him gyrate on the Ellen show. "He's so sexy, I love him!". American Idol goes to the White House, how nice.

No worries, the intelligent side of America, all 58,018,321 of us will be sure to extend the same decency and respect that the media and the lib dem garbage gave to W these past 8 years. Pucker-up America, here it comes. You're going to get everything you deserve and then some.

Look on the bright side anonymous. You guys have Joe Loserman in your corner now.

Dick Hurtzer said...

Hey Scud, why do you comment as anonymous sometimes?

Jeff said...

Anonymous Scud refers to McCain voters as the "intelligent side." That's a faith-based assertion. In the reality-based world facts do not support the claim. President-elect Obama won among college educated voters and did particularly well among those with graduate degrees. He won those who make over $200,000.00 by six points. These demographics comprise our professional class. John McCain's strongest support was among uneducated voters in Appalachia and the South; in other words, the hillbilly class.

Lil Abner said...

Hey watch it Jeff. I'm a Hillbilly and I didn't vote for McSame. Apology accepted.

Jeff said...

Judge for yourself: Actual disputed ballots in the Minnesota senate race.

(Hey - scud abandoned this blog in the aftermath of his party's rejection. Somebody has to provide some content...)

Jeff said...

Scud: As a result of the senate recount, I've learned all sorts of things about Minnesota. For instance, you guys aren't in the bible belt at all. You're practically Canada. That's not flyover country. We sail over those flat deserty states en route to California. They farm in circles for some reason. If you don't have circle farms, then you're not flyover country. Sorry to break that to you.

Here's another thing I learned. If you want a Minnesotan to eat something you have to offer it four times. They refuse it three times until they finally give in. That seems odd until you learn what Minnesotans eat. Apparently, they make things called "hot dishes." That sounds good, then you learn it's a whole meal thrown into a pot and bonded together by canned creamy soup. That makes me want to wretch. You also eat fish marinated in lye.The rest of the country uses that to unclog its pipes. Minnesota must be the skinniest state in the country. Personally, my fourth response is still "no."

Here's something I'm sure you didn't know: Minnesotans are nice! That's right. They try hard not to offend or cause disruptions. So where are you from originally?

Mr. Ithurtswhenipee said...

Isn't Scud originally from California? I seem to remember him mentioning something like that in a post a few years ago. I think he fled the left coast because the homos were threatening to ruin the sanctity of his marriage, or something.
