Turkeys In The Straw


“Perhaps John Kerry believes that Iran only wants ballistic missiles for peaceful purposes.” Michael Rubin (Iran Announces Development of Ballistic Missile Technology)

Hanoi Johnny’s not the only turkey at this table — and what the gobblers currently running this country are stuffed with ain’t cornbread:

Report: Obama Admin In Secret Talks With Hezbollah, Willing To “Warm Up To A Direct Relationship In The Future” (Weasel Zippers)

I thought the U.S. never negotiated with terrorists.  That, of course, was before we had one sitting in the Oval Office. Obama claims all his policies are based on kindness.  He just doesn’t say to who.

“Kindness covers all of my political beliefs,” Obama told his audience of wealthy investors, high-tech donors, journalists and fellow Democrats Tuesday, only two months after he slashed at GOP legislators, calling them arsonists, nuclear blackmailers, economic wreckers, hostage-takers, obsessives and irresponsible extremists.

This most kindest of men also modestly considers himself to be the best of all American presidents:

In spite of a record number of Americans receiving food stamps, a 7.3 percent unemployment rate, and an embarrassing launch of his signature healthcare program, President Barack Obama says his administration has been the most productive in history.

 At a private Democratic fundraiser in Beverly Hills, Calif., Obama touted himself and Democratic leaders for surpassing the likes of Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt, who respectively ended slavery and led the country through the Great Depression and World War II.

It is an opinion fortunately not shared by the rest of us:

Obama was rated the biggest failure by a sizable margin over George W. Bush, Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter, according to a new poll.

The diehards that still support Obama despite his 5 years of unnatural disaster seem to be clustered in San Francisco, at the Washington Post, and inside Communist Party headquarters, where the strategy is to castigate anybody who doesn’t like Red Barry as an evil racist troglodyte.  At the WaPo, Jonathan Zimmerman wants to repeal presidential term limits, and the delirious denizens of the Barbary Coast bath houses are calling for an Obama dictatorship.  But …

When Obama’s motorcade rocketed around San Francisco on Monday, very few locals even noticed his presence, and fewer still cared. The crowds awaiting him at each presidential fundraiser were by far the smallest I’d seen in over five years of covering his visits here. Ticket sales to at least one of the events were so sluggish that prices had to be lowered to fill the empty seats. Out in the street, rubberneckers and protesters had dwindled to the bare minimum. This is what happens when a hero disappoints: you don’t turn on him in anger, but rather just tune him out and move on to other interests.

Obamabots. There just ain’t that many of ’em anymore.

  3. In sporadic fundraisers earlier in the year, when Obama was actively seeking better relations with Republicans, he avoided overt partisanship in his pitch to donors. His message was: I’ll work with fair-minded lawmakers from either party, but the more power Democrats have in Congress, the better my chances for success.
