“Told Ya So!”

Before I begin……we hear from our brethren on the Right that Obama’s is an imperial presidency, in other words he is a dictator…..and since the Ukraine thing we are hearing from those same people that Obama is a wimp, a Momma’s boy with NO guts…….Okay you guys make up our minds for us please.  I guess consistency means nothing, right?  Yet when the prez is inconsistent he is a bad prez…..if you want me to take anything you say seriously….then maybe you should start with one simple rule…..CONSISTENCY!

Since Russia has sent troops and ships to Ukraine we have a wealth of post incident back slapping…especially from the Right….they are pointing to Obama and his weak foreign policy (something I will stipulate) from past losers in elections as they were somehow privy to world affairs…….to this I say NOT A CHANCE!

Before I continue……to my GOP friends….want you remember this?

Sarah Palin is happily sticking it back to critics who mocked her comments about Russia back in the 2008 campaign, reports CNN. The reason is this quote from a speech of hers in Reno:

  • “After the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence—the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.”

Given what’s happening on the ground, Palin took to Facebook to gloat a little. “Yes, I could see this one from Alaska,” she writes, recalling the Tina Fey “I can see Russia from my house!” spoof. Her post continues: “I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did.” As Breitbart.com notes, Foreign Policy magazine called Palin’s comments “strange” at the time and dismissed the idea as “an extremely far-fetched scenario.”

Come on….there are couple of the ‘new’ foreign policy’ experts that until last week probably could not find Ukraine on a map without the help of their Google finger.

Look I predicted Chavez would die in office a year before he actually croaked and I am NOT an expert or a flipping foreign policy genius….but a couple of past voices did just what I did…..lucky guesses….you put out enough crap and something will come true…..you can say whatever you like about Obama’s foreign policy….but please do not make these self-promoting twats out as some sort of all seeing seer……….

That is my only statement on anything dealing with these ego-centric toads……we can talk about the lack of guts in foreign policy and anything else but for God’s sake leave these people out of it.

Thank you!

PS:  Just a small reminder!

I believe this is when he, Bush, looked into his, Putin, soul and saw an honorable man…..or something equally as moronic….just a thought………chuq

Humor Is Where You Find It

And friends, this is beyond humorous!

Ever read something that makes you chuckle….and then there are stories that make you laugh out loud…..

The polls show that Obama is sliding in the approval polls…….you know that worthless momentary snapshot we get everyday from the media?  Then the pundits build the story of the day around the polls….that is what they do….make up as much crap as they possibly can and use polls to justify their analysis…..this one just makes me smile with disgust…..

(Newser) – Just how bad are things for President Obama a year into his second term? So bad that if the American people got a mulligan on the 2012 election, there’s a good shot we’d be looking at a President Romney. A Washington Post-ABC News poll reveals that if the election were held today, Obama would lose the popular vote 45% to 49%. While the Post reminds us that the Electoral College, not the popular vote, is the ultimate decider, it notes that spread roughly mirrors the 4 points Obama actually won by, and reflects plummeting support from his key demographics:

  • Obama won women by 11 points; now, his edge is down to one point.
  • He won voters aged 18-39 by 18 points; that’s down to two.
  • He won voters earning less than $50,000 by 22 points; it’s down to three.
  • He’s now nine points in the hole with voters without a college degree, after winning them by four points.
  • While he’d still win 59% of liberals, that’s down from 75%—and 20% now say they’d vote for Romney.

Obama’s approval rating has fallen 13 points this year to 42%, tying its lowest mark ever in the poll. The culprit, as you might suspect, is at least in part the Affordable Care Act rollout, which 63% think has been handled poorly. The public now opposes the law itself 57%-40%, its worst numbers yet, and 71% favor delaying the individual mandate.

Mitt could not beat Obama in November of 2012…..and regardless what the mental midgets say….he could NOT beat him today…….hindsight is 20/20……wishful thinking knows NO bounds!

Anyone who uses the daily snapshots they call polls as a fact of reality is NOT playing with a full deck……not the sharpest tack in the box….not…..well you get the point.

Would You Take Advice From This Man?

If you need a good chuckle to start your week….then this is the post for you.

Okay before I go any further….would you take football advice from a coach with a 0-10 record?  Then why would anyone, including Repubs listen to anything that Mitt would have to say?  A proven loser!

But with that said he just had to stick his $10,000 worth in the Obamacare debacle…..

Newser) – Mitt Romney knows a little something about health care reform, and he threw his two cents on the pile today, saying President Obama “failed to learn the lessons” of Massachusetts. Romney took issue with Obama’s “one-size-fits-all” approach, notes Politico, adding that reform should have been left to the states. But Obama’s biggest failing, contends Romney, came when “he told the American people that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period,” which was “a fundamental dishonesty.” “The fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. I think it’s rotting it away. We’ve got to have a president that can lead, and right now he’s not able to do so.” Elsewhere on your Sunday dial:

  • Romney on Chris Christie: “Chris could easily become our nominee and save our party and help get this nation on the right track again. They don’t come better than Chris Christie. He’s a very popular governor in a very blue state. That’s the kind of popularity and the kind of track record the Republican Party needs if we’re going to take back the White House.”
  • Newt Gingrich on why Romney didn’t pick Christie for veep: “Romney would have shrunk, and Christie would have blossomed.”
  • Gingrich on why Obama didn’t put Hillary Clinton on his 2012 ticket: “If you had said to him, ‘You have to be re-elected but Bill Clinton is going to be next to you for four years,’ he would have said, ‘It ain’t worth it. I don’t need this level of pain.’”
  • Dianne Feinstein on LAX shooting: “The weapon was a .223 MP-15, where the MP stands for military and police, clearly designed not for general consumption. Same gun that was used at Aurora. Would I do a bill? Sure, I would do a bill. I mean, I believe this down deep in my soul.”
  • Mike Rogers on why HealthCare.gov should be shut down temporarily: “They’re trying to change a tire on a car going 75 miles an hour down the expressway. That’s not the way cybersecurity works.”

I threw in a little lagniappe of the Sunday talking heads…..most it was disgusting…but in case you were living your life and not paying attention to the douche bags with the biggest mouths…..

Meanwhile back to Mitt….”Mitt knows a little something about health care……” personal opinion….very little…..beyond that…who cares what he thinks any more….he lost…..now go away!

Notice anything similar?

The Poka In Boca–Prez Debate #3

The Mass-Debaters met in Boca Raton to debate for the third and final time….mercifully putting us out of misery…..well, our debate misery….there is still much money to be spent in the battleground states and those poor people should be raving lunatics by election day with all that spin thrown at them….

I learned that Mitt has the same position as the prez for getting out of Afghanistan…..well, basically, he has most of the same positions as the Prez….the one surprise for me was the lack of a drumming on Benghazi, a good choice to not focus on it, but the echo chamber is still going on and on about Benghazi….Mitt and his boyz decided not to on about it……to me Romney look off balanced almost the whole time for the exception for the first 10 minutes or so, when he looked like he was going to be in it for the haul……especially when he gave Obama his props for taking out Osama…taking one of the Prez talking points out of the debate…..good ploy!  Romney seemed a bit mild mannered from the bolster that has been  present in the campaign stops…..

Obama was calm and collected…….but his most newsworthy quote for the next several days will be his comment on the number of horses and bayonets in the military…….Obama spent a good percentage of his answers pointing to the ever changing positions the Romney campaign has held on foreign policy…

All in all, the Prez won this debate, my opinion…..but I am sure that others will see it differently……..I was expecting no different……the Prez had an advantage in a foreign policy simply because of his office…..Romney once again, in the last two weeks, has tacked to the middle….but is it enough or did he wait a bit too long, two weeks before the election, to make this course change?

Since this is the last debate of 2012 I want to add a few notes……as I have always said….these debates were about optics not substance….they are too rehearsed!  They have not been real debates but rather a short TV program….there needs to be a serious look at the formats and the whole presidential debate system…it needs to be updated.

Once again, it was the optics that made your decision on who won……..and of course they, meaning the media, has assembled “undecideds”…..and once again it was all theater….if there are any “undecideds” at this point then them are just looking for some attention….but idf they are truly “undecided” then just make sure that they have a coin in their pocket on election……. and for God sake….Do NOT ask them if they prefer paper or plastic!
