Electile Dysfunction … When The Unicorn Horn Goes Limp

As I replied to the Peggy Noonan commentary link Jim Treacher posted on his Face Book status I realized my multiple comments were pretty much my own commentary in progress, so I went with it…

As we approach the most important election of this nation’s history those that praised Obama in 2008, some that grace our TV screens and print media that bought into the unicorn dust and Messiah imagery, find themselves astonished Obama not only isn’t what they thought he was … but that he is exactly what WE warned he was, and would be, and what he would do to our country. Writer Peggy Noonan is one as she wakes up and realizes: Not-So-Smooth Operator Obama increasingly comes across as devious and dishonest.

Something’s happening to President Obama’s relationship with those who are inclined not to like his policies. They are now inclined not to like him. His supporters would say, “Nothing new there,” but actually I think there is. I’m referring to the broad, stable, nonradical, non-birther right. Among them the level of dislike for the president has ratcheted up sharply the past few months.

It’s not due to the election, and it’s not because the Republican candidates are so compelling and making such brilliant cases against him. That, actually, isn’t happening.

What is happening is that the president is coming across more and more as a trimmer, as an operator who’s not operating in good faith. This is hardening positions and leading to increased political bitterness. And it’s his fault, too. As an increase in polarization is a bad thing, it’s a big fault.

The shift started on Jan. 20, with the mandate that agencies of the Catholic Church would have to provide services the church finds morally repugnant. The public reaction? “You’re kidding me. That’s not just bad judgment and a lack of civic tact, it’s not even constitutional!” Faced with the blowback, the president offered a so-called accommodation that even its supporters recognized as devious. Not ill-advised, devious. Then his operatives flooded the airwaves with dishonest—not wrongheaded, dishonest—charges that those who defend the church’s religious liberties are trying to take away your contraceptives.

What a sour taste this all left. How shocking it was, including for those in the church who’d been in touch with the administration and were murmuring about having been misled.

Obama’s Energy Secretary has no problems with the rising prices Americans are paying at the pumps for gas. Why? Well, because he longs for the day we are paying what the Europeans are paying so that we would be forced into their “green” agenda. Obama hand-picked him to make their shared dream come true…

Note to Congressman Nunnelee: People are already having a hell of a time at $4/Gal, not just in our tanks, but with the trickle-up rise in the grocery budget and other goods we need to buy for our families at increased prices.

Listen carefully, naysayers

The lynching of Sarah Palin by the lying bastards in the media and the ignorant brain-dead assholes on the left, has had the result they wished for.

But I want you, our readers, to listen to her announcement on Mark Levin’s show last night and tell me with a straight face that we haven’t lost the best possible candidate we had. She’s an American, through and through, a woman that embodies what we believe in. I maintain now, as I have for months now, that Sarah Palin was the best hope we had to stem the socialist tide that is overtaking us.

Do I sound pissed? I most certainly am.

Sarah Palin announces she won't run

Here is her written statement:

October 5, 2011
Wasilla, Alaska

After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.

My decision is based upon a review of what common sense Conservatives and Independents have accomplished, especially over the last year. I believe that at this time I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office – from the nation’s governors to Congressional seats and the Presidency. We need to continue to actively and aggressively help those who will stop the “fundamental transformation” of our nation and instead seek the restoration of our greatness, our goodness and our constitutional republic based on the rule of law.

From the bottom of my heart I thank those who have supported me and defended my record throughout the years, and encouraged me to run for President. Know that by working together we can bring this country back – and as I’ve always said, one doesn’t need a title to help do it.

I will continue driving the discussion for freedom and free markets, including in the race for President where our candidates must embrace immediate action toward energy independence through domestic resource developments of conventional energy sources, along with renewables. We must reduce tax burdens and onerous regulations that kill American industry, and our candidates must always push to minimize government to strengthen the economy and allow the private sector to create jobs.

Those will be our priorities so Americans can be confident that a smaller, smarter government that is truly of the people, by the people, and for the people can better serve this most exceptional nation.

In the coming weeks I will help coordinate strategies to assist in replacing the President, re-taking the Senate, and maintaining the House.

Thank you again for all your support. Let’s unite to restore this country!

God bless America.

– Sarah Palin
