I know a lot of people had held their breath on whether or not Obama was going to support the mosque that is going to be built at Ground Zero. I knew as clear as
day Biden's head that he would support it when poll after poll was showing the country, to put it mildly, is at a minimum 2 to 1 opposed to its construction. So I just knew he would come down on the wrong side of it because his brain is less like an organ of his body and more like a hall of broken mirrors.
Great! He wont comment on the "wisdom" of the mosque...what a wise guy! Not only does first amendment guarantee that religious organizations be allowed exist and worship, but they are also absolutely allowed to build any building anywhere at anytime! Meaning they are exempt from any and all local zoning laws that could prevent them from being erected at emotionally charged open wounds such as Ground Zero.
I mean honestly, its not like they want to build something REALLY bad...like a Walmart....
Wow, for once I have to say I totally agree that Obama can't respond to EVERY local issue that comes across his BlackBerry, presidents don't have time for that stuff. I know I know, 9-11 was an event of national significance, but Obama has to give the local government of New York City its due deference to make its own decisions on matters such as this because the federal government has WAY bigger fish to fry anyway. Laws that prohibit illegal immigration in podunk nowhere localities like Arizona aren't going to sue themselves!
The notion that this is a play to protect religious freedom is probably the greatest straw man constructed by liberals since they elevated Joe "if I only had a brain" Biden to the vice presidency. Nobody is saying they can't build the mosque at all! If that were the case then its supporters would actually have a point, which would probably prompt panic in the Obama Administration since they've never actually seen one before.
Almost everyone can agree that they have a right to build their mosque, period. Furthermore, THAT they worship is NOT the issue. The issue is WHERE they want to worship.
If the Cordoba Initiative was truly interested in seeking unity and reconciliation between Islam and the west, as they say they are, they would never fight to build their mosque steps away from Ground Zero. They certainly wouldn't dedicate it on the 10 year anniversary of 9-11 .
By the way...where were these liberal first amendment warriors, for example, when a DC cop busted school kids for praying at the steps of the Supreme Court?
This isn't about the first amendment at all! This is just another chance for liberals to have another "look at me" moment. They think those of us who oppose this mosque are a bunch of bigoted troglodytes who are just too weepy about 9-11 still to transcend its tragedy.
Remember this in a couple of months when the ACLU is on red alert and we Christians are expected to swallow "Happy Holidays" as if nobody knows which holiday is being celebrated. For liberals support for this mosque is nothing more than a public display of their own moral vanity.Add a comment
Actually not an easy task trying to come up with good ones (I'm not sure I did), but it seemed fun to at least attempt. This was inspired by the #LiberalPickupLines hastag on Twitter.

Here is another great joke (I sort of use the word loosely here...you'll see why) that was sent to me via email thats too good to not share:
One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied,'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop.
When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a thank you card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.
Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop.
The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a thank you card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.
Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Congressman was very happy and left the shop.
The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.
And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

Other than hearing rumors that around the holidays if you place a glass of milk and a plate of race cards by a constitution burning fireplace he moves in to your home, pays below market rent and doesn't tell Congress, I don't actually know all that much about Charlie Rangel.
I can say that I don't understand what motivates the 80 year old to fight for a career he should have ended a generation ago so he wouldn't have to stick around long enough to get caught with 13 counts of ethics violations.
Maybe its me, but I get such a spiritual charge out of hearing Sharpton getting all reverendy and comparing Rangel to Jesus Christ. I'm ashamed to admit that sometimes I wonder about about his credibility, and then he says something like this and all of my faith in him is restored in a manner not unlike the honor of the men he falsely accused of raping Tawana Brawley.
Unfortunately for democracy, chances are Sharpton is right. According to a source more reliable than Biden playing Jeopardy, Rangel's Wikipedia page points out how "Rangel has won re-election every two years since (his first election to Congress), often with over 90 percent of the vote."
This explains exactly why he's refusing to back down from the ethics charges he's facing right now, he NEVER has to work for the power he has been given and he feels entitled to it. I can understand how this can be when election nights for him since 1970 have been just another reason to have a party to celebrate being the least accountable congressman ever.
These are exactly the seeds with which corruption is sown and we're expected to believe Charlie has been totally impervious to all of it for the entire 40 years he has been in Congress. I don't know why he doesn't just tell the truth since his "resurrection" is inevitable anyway.
That said, I'm not really sure I want to know what resurrection looks like for a crusty 80 year old.....
Last January Harry Reid activated his racist force-field and successfully deflected what would've been career ending condescension of blacks by extolling Obama's light skin and absent "Negro dialect" Well I guess he was experiencing withdrawals of some kind:
............ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...........................I'm going to go with yes, you do!!!
I know a lot of lay people who would say something so stupid, but why does a national leader like Harry Reid continue to open that hole of his and remove all doubt about the fool that he is? How do minorities allow themselves to be spoken of in such a way? Even if they're Democrats, how can they be ok with anyone saying they basically are too dumb to have minds of their own and they should act like the herd of cattle that morons like Reid think they are?
I don't know Sharon Angle, I'm sure she's a great lady. I would happily vote for her if I was a Nevadan, but Reid should hit his knees and thank God every day that Marco Rubio isn't his opponent. By Reid's litmus test that is one "CONFUSED" Hispanic that would smoke him like a Cuban in any debate, any day of the week.
If Reid were a Republican the media would be investigating his personal tailor to find out what his hood size is, but he's a Democrat...the rules don't apply to him
Two can play at this game, by the way. How about I don't know how anyone of Zombie heritage could be a Republican....OKAY! Need I say more?
Even though zombies don't exist I'm going to go out on a limb and say I'm pretty sure my assertion is way more accurate.
The YouTube video with the remark didn't show what question, if any, led to this latest gem of brilliance from the honorable (a ha, a ha ha ha) majority leader of the Senate.

For years we've been howling about how biased the media is in favor of liberals, and we've been wrong. Bias suggests its a little accidental, and I think they know exactly what they're doing. Wherever George Orwell is right now his hand must be sore from high-fiving all the souls around him because this president vindicates his prophesies.
Today's mainstream media has totally pulled back the bias mask to reveal the full-blown propagandists that they are for all things Democrat. Their naked defense of Michelle Obama's trip to Spain has been just too much to take.
This proxy for the DNC press office is trying to act like its a bunch of right-wing bluster to criticize how the First Lady wants to take a load of in Spain on her nickel and our dime. They want to say that the cost to us is a drop in the bucket relative to, say, the average drop in the "working class's" 401K...soooooooooooooooooo, NO BIG DEAL?
(sigh) BIG FREAKIN' DEAL!. This president and first lady are acting like monarchs more than elected public servants, and they think we are either too stupid to know what they are doing, or too distracted to care.
I'll help them out...ITS NEITHER! Too many of us still remember how these sycophants eviscerated Sarah Palin in 2008 for wearing clothes paid for, and ultimately returned to the stores where they were purchased, by the RNC. Unlike the global frolics of the media's deities-in-chief, taxpayer money WAS NOT taken to pay for any of it.
Better yet, how about the days of George W. Bush not being able to take a leak without them spinning it into how "Bush once Again Seeks Escape to Relieve Himself of Life's Pressures, Sparking Speculation Dick is Actually In Charge.", let alone take a working "vacation" at his Texas ranch.
If you listen to the arrogance in the tone of Cokie "is how I form my opinions" Roberts it just sounds like she is trying to simultaneously condescend and reassure that our negative perception of Queen Michelle's excellent adventure is totally bogus, and we really should wait for trained professionals to give us our opinion about it before we make our brains bleed.
By the way Cokie, I've heard better excuses from the mouths of the idiots on Cheaters
Seriously, I'm waiting for the day when these fools start a broadcast with "you are getting veeeeeerrrrrrry sleepy..."
I don't want to parrot at great length how economically out of touch the Obamas really are, because it's oh so self evident by now anyway. I do want to point out they could've taken almost all of the wind out of their critics sails by chartering a private flight on their dime instead of using Air Force 2, so they can finally let Biden have it.
This is why they hate Fox News and the internet so much. They're the airholes in the jar the mainstream media has trapped us in.
Can anyone imagine a USA without either of those lifelines to honest discourse? Bolshevik Obama's paradigm shift would've won out before he was even done organizing communities in that utopia formerly known as Chicago.
I never thought I would say this, but the only monarchs I want to see in America are the and the only queen I want to see in politics is .
I REALLY wish there was a way to collect a refund on our crappy leadership. Talk about erasing the national debt.Add a comment

Ever since Obama' started chastising the GOP for not coming up with "new" ideas, I've been wondering what "new" ideas could be originating from his administration...
10. Point out how our trillion dollar deficits meet the goal of avoiding gazillion dollar deficits.
9. Hire the first official White House chiropractor under the code name, "Dr. Obowma."
8. Make it crystal clear that the president TOTALLY opposes gay marriage....except in cases where the participants are straight (or gay)...seriously though...yuck... ;-D
7. Muslim outreach will include NASA putting Mars on hold until the president knows the effects of zero gravity on jihad.
6. Extol the virtuous dichotomy of the First Lady being both Obesity Czar and Secretary of Let-Them-Eat-Cake.
5. The president should golf A LOT so the public can associate him with a hero like Tiger Woods.
4. The TOTUS's suggested to the FLOTUS that if its cool with the SCOTUS the POTUS should appoint Barney Frank to a newly formed office of HOMOTUS.
3. 90% employment places our economic policy at a 10% rate of success.
2. The president can NEVER be wrong....we need to find 7 more states.
1. Restore the death tax so we can collect a fortune on killing the American Dream.Add a comment
Senator Mitch McConnell gave Al Franken a piece of his mind after being mocked by him in the Senate chambers during his speech in opposition to Elena Kagan's confirmation to the Supreme Court.
I'm glad to hear Franken was apologetic to McConnell after being reminded he is no longer a writer for Saturday Night Live and doesn't have to be unfunny in the Senate too. To be fair, he absolutely did the right thing, but it came only after being taken to task for it.
What if he wasn't? Would he still have been sorry? Did it really have to take a parental scolding for him to actually become self-aware of his teenage antics this time?
Honestly, what does Minnesota have to say for themselves? They gave us a senator who talks and acts like the ventriloquist dummy that he looks like more than than the statesman he should be. He's had a year and a half of practice being an adult now and he still can't get it together when he's presiding over the United States Senate?
YEAH, NO KIDDING!
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for forgiveness, and he did apologize. So this issue is pretty much done, I guess. But now I want to know how many more apologies would it take before Minnesota realizes what many of us in the country already know....
That Al Franken really is sorry.Add a comment
Sacrifice is something that many Americans are becoming all too familiar with during this economic downturn. It was a key theme in President Obama's inaugural address to the nation, and he's referenced it numerous times when lecturing the country on how to get back on its feet.
But while most of the country is pinching pennies and downsizing summer sojourns - or forgoing them altogether - the Obamas don't seem to be heeding their own advice. While many of us are struggling, the First Lady is spending the next few days in a five-star hotel on the chic Costa del Sol in southern Spain with 40 of her "closest friends." According to CNN, the group is expected to occupy 60 to 70 rooms, more than a third of the lodgings at the 160-room resort. Not exactly what one would call cutting back in troubled times.
Reports are calling the lodgings of Obama's Spanish fiesta, the Hotel Villa Padierna in Marbella, "luxurious," "posh" and "a millionaires' playground." Estimated room rate per night? Up to a staggering $2,500. Method of transportation? Air Force Two.
To be clear, what the Obamas do with their money is one thing; what they do with ours is another. Transporting and housing the estimated 70 Secret Service agents who will flank the material girl will cost the taxpayers a pretty penny.

I don't know how these people sleep at night, I truly don't, but I do know that Michelle's official portrait needs a redo. I also know what Michelle Antoinette's portrait should look like (click the image to see a larger version)...

is apparently EVAPORATING like it's....
Does ANYONE buy this crap? Oil gushed into the ocean for MONTHS without end to the tune of 5 million barrels. Liberals begged for straight jackets when Exxon Valdez spilled, at its highest estimate, spilled about 750,000 barrels. The ecosystem there STILL hasn't totally recovered.
By the most liberal estimate the gulf oil spill is more than 5 times worse and we're supposed to believe the problem...just went away?
Something tells me the people who put this report together are going to admit they made a mistake sometime after November 2. I don't know...just a hunch.
But don't ask me, I'm a peon whose conservative brain can't comprehend how common sense is defied...

It has been said by some that Obama is the smartest president ever, and I'm still waiting for proof because last time I checked arrogance laced playground logic is not much of a factor in the calculating an intelligence quotient.
Did the GOP botch things to the point of deserving to lose power, YES! But the only reason they didn't "go out into the wilderness" because the entire country is there now after Obama dragged it KICKING AND SCREAMING out there with him. There simply wasn't any more room.
This president is on a trajectory to bring more debt to the country than every president before him combined, and he has the nerve to still pop a squat on what the GOP did? Does he think his sinking poll numbers are just dumb luck?
Nobody who hasn't erected a shrine to MSNBC believes Obama is making an honest effort to improve anything. He has made it as clear as the door to the socialist closet he hides behind that he cares more about ideology and less about having the intellectual curiosity to figure out what the right thing to do about anything would be.
This is getting to be so old now, this idiot bashes Bush so much I'm starting to wonder if his marriage to Michelle is a sham.
The recession brought on by the dot com bubble burst came under the Clinton watch. 90% of 9-11 was being planned by Al Queda while Bill Clinton was president. White House interns confused blue dresses with sponges, and you'll find Obama's real birth certificate delivered to Congress via Santa Claus riding a unicorn before you'll ever read a single instance of George W. Bush blaming Bill Clinton for ANYTHING he had to deal with.
So what "new ideas" does the GOP need to come up with anyway? What the hell has been so new about what King Dipp brings to the table?
If the world was a party where everyone was drinking beers and yucking it up to movie quotes from "The Hangover" Obama would be the goofball in the corner sipping Smirnoff Ice from a straw and shouting "AAAAOOOOOOO Buuuuuuudy" because he finally got around to renting "Encino Man" on VHS...and he wants to talk about THAT.
The "remaking" of America he promised in his 2008 victory speech has been nothing more than the jamming of European laws and values down Uncle Sam's throat. And even they are cocking their heads in bemusement at this since neither side has the money to continue the lie that socialism works anymore.
Man I would love to have a chance to debate this guy...mano y teleprompter...I know I'm just a peon, but a six year old could deconstruct his arguments, so I think I can take him.
Why.....why does the GOP need new ideas? "New" ideas are getting us into this mess.
100 years ago 8 grades would cram into one school house and armed with a chalkboard and books (information boxes that don't need to be plugged into a wall) 8th graders were passing exams that today's college student with wifi laptops and wikipedia fail....because educators are always on the look out for...new....ideas...and not focusing on what WAS working.
"New ideas" is just a buzz word ploy to dishonestly characterize systems, such as capitalism, that actually work when they aren't being abused as in need of replacement. Isn't this the kind of "either your with us or against us" stuff that made liberals wet their pants suits when Bush was president?
What the is so damn great about NEW ideas anyway? What about GOOD ideas?.......
What about...."it wasn't broke, so stop fixing it."
Here's a good idea, how about the president and congress try reading the instruction manual that came with this government? Its a little bit longer than the Arizona Immigration Law that they refuse to look at...also, unfortunately for us, its not a new idea...
...but its a damn good one, and they ought to give it a try...Add a comment
There is a small but growing debate about whether or not President Obama's age is approaching or has already passed Biden's IQ. The way things are going I'm wondering if the same argument should start to happen with the big 0 himself.
Ok, its a made up debate, but can anyone give me even one reason why it shouldn't be?
All kidding aside, I hope President Obama's birthday is as happy as the country is with his leadership.
