Facts don’t matter to Palin haters

November 18, 2009

Ask most people on the right on why they don’t like our Dear Leader and most will be able to articulate specific policy issues they disagree with. OK, often they sum it up with “He’s a Socialist,” but when pressed, they can cite actual policies and give details.

Ask a typical hater of Gov. Sarah Palin why they don’t like her, and most can, at best, deliver quotes made by Tina Fey, and try to attribute them to Gov. Palin. If you press them for details, they tend to get angry and often blame you for attempting to insert reality into their irrational hatred that makes them feel all warm and fuzzy.

Proud ignorance is sadly a common feature of Obama supporters.

It Is Alive!

Barak Obama failed to put a stake in the heart of Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday.
Despite massively outspending her in Pennsylvania ($11 million to $5 million in TV ads alone), Monica Lewinski’s ex-boyfriend’s wife kicked his narrow ass with a solid 10 point win.

With that solid win in a key general election state, money is rolling into her campaign. “The Clinton campaign claimed it raised $500,000 online in the first hour after polls closed Tuesday.” It also adds weight to HRC’s argument on why the democrat party overseers, the so-called “super delegates”, should ditch the will of the democrat voters and select her for the party nomination instead of Obama, who was actually elected by the citizens aligned with the democrat party.

With any luck, the HRC and Barry will keep clawing at each other all the way to Denver.

I called it.

I have been saying that Hillary Rodham Clinton was going to take the fight to the primary all the way to the convention floor if she had to.

…and it appears she is. OK, not a hard call given her history of destroying anyone who got in her way, sense of entitlement, and raw naked lust for power. I apologize for using the words “naked” and “lust” in a sentence about HRC.

The MSM is finally catching up to me. The Washington Post has a story about HRC vowing to stay in the race.

In her most definitive comments to date on the subject, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton sought Saturday to put to rest any notion that she will drop out of the presidential race, pledging in an interview to not only compete in all the remaining primaries but also continue until there is a resolution of the disqualified results in Florida and Michigan.

“I know there are some people who want to shut this down and I think they are wrong,” Clinton said in an interview during a campaign stop here Saturday. “I have no intention of stopping until we finish what we started and until we see what happens in the next 10 contests and until we resolve Florida and Michigan. And if we don’t resolve it, we’ll resolve it at the convention — that’s what credentials committees are for.

One of those “people” is the DNC Chairman Howard Dean. He just got a spot on Hillary’s enemies list.

My Way News also has a story on the subject

If Hillary Rodham Clinton is feeling heat from pundits and party elders to quit the race and back Barack Obama, you’d never know it from her crowds, energy level and upbeat demeanor on the campaign trail.

“There are millions of reasons to continue this race: people in Pennsylvania, Indiana and North Carolina, and all of the contests yet to come,” Clinton told reporters Friday. “This is a very close race and clearly I believe strongly that everyone should have their voices heard and their votes counted.”

I’m looking forward to a long a bloody campaign between HRC and the other unexperienced far left extremist liberal democrat with plans to destroy the US economy, Barak Obama.

Another of the left’s deliberate lies

March 29, 2008

Charles Krauthammer points out the lefts latest deliberate, dirty lie.

Asked at a New Hampshire campaign stop about possibly staying in Iraq 50 years, John McCain interrupted — “Make it a hundred” — then offered a precise analogy to what he envisioned: “We’ve been in Japan for 60 years. We’ve been in South Korea for 50 years or so.” Lest anyone think he was talking about prolonged war-fighting rather than maintaining a presence in postwar Iraq, he explained: “That would be fine with me, as long as Americans are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed.”

And lest anyone persist in thinking he was talking about war-fighting, he told his questioner: “It’s fine with me and I hope it would be fine with you if we maintained a presence in a very volatile part of the world.”

There is another analogy to the kind of benign and strategically advantageous “presence” McCain was suggesting for postwar Iraq: Kuwait. The U.S. (with allies) occupied Kuwait in 1991 and has remained there with a major military presence for 17 years. We debate dozens of foreign policy issues in this country. I’ve yet to hear any serious person of either party call for a pullout from Kuwait.

Why? Because our presence projects power and provides stability for the entire Gulf and for vulnerable U.S. allies that line its shores.

The desirability of a similar presence in Iraq was obvious as long as five years ago to retired Gen. Merrill McPeak, one of Barack Obama’s leading military advisers and his campaign co-chairman. During the first week of the Iraq War, McPeak (a war critic) suggested in an interview that “we’ll be there a century, hopefully. If it works right.” (Meaning, if we win.)

But a serious argument is not what Democrats are seeking. They want the killer sound bite, the silver bullet to take down McCain. According to the Politico, they have found it: “Dems to hammer McCain for ‘100 years.’

As Lenin is said to have said: “A lie told often enough becomes truth.” And as this lie passes into truth, the Democrats are ready to deploy it “as the linchpin of an effort to turn McCain’s national security credentials against him,” reports David Paul Kuhn of the Politico.

Hence: A Howard Dean fundraising letter charging McCain with seeking “an endless war in Iraq.” And a Democratic National Committee press release in which Dean asserts: “McCain’s strategy is a war without end. . . . Elect John McCain and get 100 years in Iraq.”

The truth doesn’t matter to democrats. This “big lie” is the same “Politics of Personal Destruction” that they are infamous for.
