But yet, when an American citizen speaks his mind, Republicans are told that they can't listen to his opinions and expect to be considered 'bipartisan'. This would be the guy who has the largest radio audience in history, has had the largest radio audience for a long time and could probably be credited with single-handedly saving the AM side of the radio dial. He averages approximately 22 million listeners a day, and the Obamessiah wants to tell all 22 million that "hey, you can't play with us if you're going to listen to him". Last time I checked, bipartisan doesn't mean you have to agree with us and drop your beliefs, although that's certainly what most Republicans seem to have done, the spineless pansies that they are. Bipartisanship means: representing, characterized by, or including members from two parties or factions. How is it that bipartisanship became "you have to agree with us since we're not going to bargain"?
And by the way, anyone else notice that it's not that he wants to discuss the parts of the plan that are offensive to those of us who support limited government, or make the discussion about the $1 trillion, he'd rather make the discussion about bipartisanship and Rush Limbaugh. Funny that.
I'll be honest right here and now. One of the many problems I have with the messiah is his skin. No, not the color of it, but rather, how thin it is. God help you if you disagree with him. At least Bill Clinton acknowledged his opponents as merely folks with a different point of view. If you disagree with the Obamessiah, you're racist, obstructionist, and the target of his wrath.
I wonder what he's going to say about Pope Benedict tomorrow after this.
Too bad Obamessiah's mom didn't believe as strongly in abortion as He seems to.

However, tomorrow, after the Obamanuts have left town and the hangovers hit, I just want:
a government that is smaller, more efficient, stays out of my way as a citizen, and doesn't think it can do things better than the private market.
I'd like the arrogance of the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of our government to disappear and those people serving in those branches to remember who they work for, not who they think works for them.
I'd like to have bureaucrats remind people who are getting public handouts to be thankful for what they have and that it is a temporary assistance, not a lifestyle.
I'd like to have the people who have finally spent a couple hours volunteering over the past 48 hours to stop lecturing those of us who spent thousands of hours volunteering over the past 8 years and shut the hell up about "getting to work". Most of us have BEEN working. Not our fault you didn't bother to shoulder your share of the load.
And finally, I'd like the media to go back to actually reporting the news rather than their opinions. I don't care what Chris Matthews, Sean Hannity, Keith Olberman, Dan Rather, Andrea Mitchell, or any other of these idiotic talking heads think. I want to know the news. Shut the hell up and let me form my own opinions about what it means.
Think I'm asking for too much?
Yeah, me too.

What the hell took so long? I mean, it's not like you had to think long and hard as to whether these guys got the shaft by the judicial system. Looking at some of the others he pardoned, you have to wonder what the hell the hold-up was.
If you want more info in regards to this case, go here, as they've got the whole thing.

Barack Obama is wasting no time poking a sharp stick in the eyes of gun owners.
The incoming President's choice for U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, is an anti-gun extremist who has assailed gun owners since his days in the Bill Clinton administration.
Holder, who served as Deputy Attorney General from 1997-2001, supports a 3-day waiting period for handgun purchases, one-gun-a-month rationing, licensing and registration of all gun owners, mandatory so-called smart gun technology, a lifetime gun ban for certain juvenile offenses and regulating gun shows out of existence.
As Janet Reno's top deputy, Eric Holder was the go to guy on gun control issues. In a 1999 statement, Holder told members of Congress not to cave in to "the special interest that value the cold hard steel of guns more than the lives of children, neighbors and police officers," and urged them to pass legislation that would have destroyed the gun show industry.
Gun Owners of America members flooded the Congress with postcards and e-mails and stopped Holder's gun control plan.
In 2000, Holder was instrumental in the Clinton Administration's effort to strong arm firearms manufacturers into voluntarily accepting regulations that had stalled in the Congress.
In a brazen legislation-by-extortion plot, the federal government filed suit against gun makers but offered to drop the suit if the companies would bow to the administration's demands.
Again, GOA and its members took the lead in opposing Holder and the Clinton Administration and slowed down implementation of the agreement until it completely went away when Clinton left office.
One company went along with the deal but after intense pressure from gun owners, no others joined the unholy alliance.
After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, in an op-ed in the Washington Post, Holder pushed for more gun control and greater restrictions on gun shows, even though the terrorists were armed with box cutters that could be purchased at any hardware store.
Just last year, Holder joined Janet Reno and 11 other former Justice Department officials in an amicus brief before the Supreme Court arguing in favor of the gun ban in Washington D.C.
The Holder/Reno brief also took the position that the Second Amendment protects a collective government right, not an individual right.
GOA and its members have defeated Eric Holder and his agenda in the past, and we need to do it again. The Holder nomination is subject to Senate confirmation in a vote which is set to occur at any time.
Gun Owners of America has asked all members of the U.S. Senate to reject this anti-Second Amendment activist.
Now we're urging gun owners across the country to contact their own Senators and insist that they vote "NO" on Eric Holder.
ACTION: Please use the Take Action feature below to send your Senators a pre-written e-mail message.
To use their pre-formatted letter, go here. Want to write your own? Please do, ASAP.

"I have been very proud of my track record as a state legislator and as a U.S. senator in terms of maintaining highly ethical behavior throughout my public life" -Barack Obama
Really Obamessiah? Highly ethical? Wouldn't be able to tell it by your appointments to various cabinet positions.
Secretary of the Treasury: Andrew Geithner owed $34k in back taxes after not paying self-employment taxes until he was audited by the IRS and not paying social securty taxes on a housekeeper, who by the way became an illegal immigrant during their employment. Yep, that's the guy I want in charge of our financial system. And by the way, wasn't this a problem for several female appointees from both the Bush and Clinton administration? But because he's 'very sorry' Senator Chuckles Schumer says it's ok. Honest mistake. If you and me made this same "honest mistake" we'd be doing time for tax evasion. Guaran-frickin-tee that if this was a Republican nominee, Chuckles would be going over the edge, losing his damn mind to every camera that would focus on his ugly mug.
Secretary of Commerce: Bill Richardson is under grand jury investigation because his chief-of-staff told a state agency to hire a contributor to the Richardson president canidacy. Only cost him $100,000 for a $1.5 million contract for a bond issuance with the state agency. Not a bad investment and I'm sure he can write it off to business development.
Secretary of Labor: Hilda Solis isn't under investigation for anything but I had to write about her unwillingness to publicly state her position on 'card check' legislation in her hearing yesterday. She specifically stated that she was not willing to discuss publicly but would talk privately to the committee members. Translation: Let's not go into this in front of the children, they won't understand it. Arrogance- not just for the top of the ticket any more.
And that doesn't even begin to touch the surface of the Clinton's corruption. Putting Hillary in charge of the relations that we have with countries that have given millions of dollars to her husband is like asking Bonnie to guard the safe, while Clyde robs the place. Ridiculous. "Oh, it's all in a trust"...yeah, pull my other leg, it plays "Jingle Bells"....

We are told that it's not our money to keep, even though we earned it. (Jim Moran, VA-D, 11/4/08)
We are told that we are going to have to sacrifice for the greater good (Obamessiah, multiple times).
We are told that we are all one, and that the suffering of our neighbors who made poor choices should be felt by everyone, rather than by the person who made poor choices. (Bailouts, all over)
We are not allowed to fail, whether that be in the schools, where kids who cannot read are allowed to be promoted to the next grade to ensure their self-esteem isn't harmed or whether that be Citibank, GM, Chrysler, AIG, etc, where their general stupidity and lack of understanding the market and competition drove them to bankruptcy. I say stupidity when referring to the car companies because they knowingly agreed to the contracts with the UAW that allowed the wasteful policies and positions that have driven the companies into the oblivion. No one forced them (other than the UAW of course) to agree to those contracts. Had they taken a stand 3 years ago during their most recent collective bargaining agreements, as was recommended by many industry analysts, this latest brush with failure probably would have been merely a fantasy.
People who show true emotion and passion as well as what used to be considered common sense in public are considered 'savages' and shunned by the elites (much like John the Savage in Huxley's book). Joe the Plumber, Sarah Palin, and Ron Paul to name a few.
When will people wake up and realize that government control isn't the answer but rather the source of the majority of the problems?
Probably when the Soma runs out.

Like Stuart Smalley up on Minnesota and all the jackasses that voted for him.
Really Minnesota? This is the best you can do?
Caroline Kennedy for Senate? Really? An illiterate, snob with a chip on her shoulder and an superiority complex. Yeah, that's EXACTLY what we need in the Senate. Although, hell, we're gonna get Frankenstein, so they can sit in the back and tell jokes.
Bill Richardson, he's out before he's in. Nice work Bill. What was gonna happen if you actually got elected President? Remember people, despite the long odds against him, Bill WAS running at one point in time. I guess the electoral system does work sometimes.
And all the anti-Israel haters. Are you people f-ing morons? Israel attacks Hamas? Really? So all those rockets that have been shot over the border originating from Gaza, those were what? Fireworks? Anyone who doesn't think Israel is justified in their latest offensive against the terrorist group Hamas, isn't paying attention.
And then there are my beloved Denver Broncos. All last year I was ranting about how Shanahan couldn't get the team into the game, and that his coaching sucked, and that he needed to get his head out of his ass, but yet, owner Pat Bowlen stuck with him this year. This season they go through 7 starting RB's, don't have the same starting lineup for their defense twice in the entire season, and pull people in off the street to play for them, and yet, still go 8-8. While I wasn't happy with their late season collapse and missing the playoffs OR the fact they lost to the Raiders AND the Chiefs, two games that would have given them a playoff spot, I was ok with their performance due to all the injuries. But yet, Bowlen does the inconceivable and fires Shanny. I certainly are hoping they get a great coach and GM to replace him (two different guys please), but I'm not holding my breath....Damn you Elway for getting old and retiring.
