The tough choices have to be made. No matter what your political stripe. I don’t know if air strikes are the way to go here, but I’m not the one sitting in the oval orifice.
So O-bomb-a, rather than leading, follows the French and the UN. Tell me again how any of this makes America or O-bomb-a look better in the eyes of the world?
Wait. That was a rhetorical question.
R.S. McCain is also questioning the selective outrage and the outragers.
Meanwhile, The Rhetorican:
Whatâ€™s missing? The ubiquitous sense of outrage in every nook and cranny of Leftie-dom that we couldnâ€™t stop hearing back in 2003, before troops even started packing for Iraq.
True: The outrage is not â€œubiquitous,â€ but what are lefties like Michael Moore going to do? They got nowhere to go. They backed the most left-wing nominee in the Democratic Partyâ€™s history â€” yes, Obama is further left than McGovern or Dukakis â€” and actually managed to getÂ him elected. And the result is . . . ??
Weâ€™re still in Iraq and Afghanistan. Guantanamo is still in business. Bradley Manning is stripped naked in solitary confinement. Now, another military adventure. Youâ€™d think that people whoâ€™d been so blatantly screwed over, bamboozled, sold out, ripped offÂ and stabbed in the back would eventually wise up.
But then again: Theyâ€™re liberals.
Personally, I don’t think O-bomb-a would have called for air strikes on Libya unless it served his political purpose. He may just be bowing to international pressure and hoping to use this for capital later on down the road. He certainly didn’t take any great stand on the issue in the previous weeks, aside from the posturing and speeches with his adminstruation speaking from both sides of the issue thus confusing all parties as to what stance America was going to take.
I believe he wants all unrest in the middle east to continue. It serves as distraction to his radical domestic agenda and if you think he’s going to do anything that helps Israel that he isn’t forced to, then you haven’t been reading the tea leaves properly.
I swear I hadn’t read Instapundit’s article before I wrote that headline.
First, your attention please. A lawful gun owner is under attack and about to be wrongly imprisoned for seven years for lawfully transporting guns, unloaded and in his trunk with no ammunition in the vicinity. How can this happen in America?
Brian Aitken’s Mistake – A New Jersey man gets seven years for being a responsible gun owner.
Won’t you sign the petition to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie inÂ support of Brian Aitken?
And please share this story with every freaking person in America.
Next, two more blood boiling moments:
From The Daley Gator – Unfreakingbelievable
And Obi?s Sister – Whhhaaaaaaaaat?
Finally, newly added to the Prime page is this center-punched commentary and motivational manifesto from Mister Pterodactyl.
My take? When you start beat boxing your own political pet peeve or single issue voter scenario, re-read this post. You are going to read it for the first time now, aren’t you? Yes. You should. Then bookmark it. Better yet, print it out and tape it to your refrigerator. Then e-mail it to your friends. You could also have it tattooed to your inner eye lids. OK, maybe a bit much. Maybe.
Hat Tip the Troglopundit,
from where I followed this Mister Pterodactyl link.
Now, why was Mister Pterodactyl missing from the Robotic Blogroll?
I blame the leeches.
Omission happily, humbly corrected.
ps, If you haven’t done so, please be sure to stop by and wish Bob a speedy recovery from whatever bad mojo has been oppressed upon him.
then commences to whine about our supposed human rights violations, which, if there are any at all, are the direct result of progressive/socialist policies.
If we are to take this one step further we could liken Obama’s lawsuit against Arizona and the subsequent report to the UN as a drug pusher who whines to his addicted flock about not being able to stop selling them dope, all the while enjoying the lavish perks of the income.
As Peter Wehner says in his article “How Obama Sees America”
It is also evidence of a particular cast of mind, one that is eager to undermine Americaâ€™s moral standing in the world. That has been a consistent effort by the current administration. We have seen if from the president, who seems to take special delight in denigrating our country before the rest of the world, and those such as Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner, who went out of his way to assure us that in discussions with China about human rights, the Arizona law against illegal immigration was brought up â€œup early and often. It was mentioned in the first session, and as a troubling trend in our society and an indication that we have to deal with issues of discrimination or potential discrimination, and that these are issues very much being debated in our own society.â€
If the apologist in chief were to enforce the laws on the books we would have far less of a problem to deal with. But we know that’s not about to happen.
As The Heritage Foundation points out, the Universal Periodic Review is nothing more than a ham-handed praise fest for all of the human rights abusers to pat themselves on the back, and by joining the farcical circle-jerk, Obama has given the United States her first day in the barrel.Â Â ~ Umm, well, I was paraphrasing a bit there.
Again, how UN-American of you, Obummer.
