During the Democratic primaries in 2008, I asked a liberal friend of mine whether he was going to support Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. He thought for a second and casually responded, “Obama.”
Now who hasn’t had this conversation with an Obama supporter ? I asked him why he would support Obama over Clinton, given that they had basically the same proposals but she had more experience and we knew so much more about her.
His answer, in essence, was: “Obama!”
We all have our favorite daily drive-bys, WHD is one of my favorites for no other reason than to see what time Obama gets out of bed in the morning/starts his day (average: noonish). Take THAT you hard working tax paying working stiffs ! Just shut up! <—-2012 Democratic Party talking point, FYI.
Since 2008, my favorite daily blog visits include heavy populations of former Dems wondering what happened to their party of ideas and compassion. Many are on my blog roll, please visit them and lend them support. Like minds and all that stuff reflected in the tags.
http://www.coverjunkie.com/new-covers/2785 Newsweek has named Obama "god of all things" and depicts him as Shiva the Destroyer on its latest cover. It has been years since I have been to the Cleveland Museum of Art, but I remember a field trip there in high school where a docent told us Shiva was a female goddess whose mission was to destroy the world by creating multiple disasters all at once, using all of her arms. Calling any president a god i … Read More
I think I watched this ten times, at least, before I finally came back to HB to post this. It's marvelously well done. Remember the most important of all the Alinksy "Tactics for Radicals": 5. "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage." Barbara Boxer more likely than not is going … Read More
I know the Hillbuzzers will enjoy this sweet video intro from those keeping it real 4 Sarah supporters at Conservatives4Palin
Check this out over at Pefunction. Michelle Malkin also has an excellent run-down of the latest Daily Kos attack on Governor Palin…trying to ridicule her for saying Republicans shouldn't, just yet, "party like it's 1773" because celebrations should only happen when the Left is defeated and Americans take back Washington. The ignorant, basement-dwelling, Hot Pockets-muching Lefties kept saying "What happened in 1773?" and tried making fun of Pal … Read More
The boyz are on fire! Good question, I was there too. If you count the people stranded at the Metro stations that morning, I believe it was a cool million too. If you count the buses still dropping off people near the monument…when the rally was over….might have been more? As for the Colbert-Stewart rally, I’m guessing about 15k white college students? Too high?
Please chime in with your theories on this, because there's a mystery to be solved regarding the deliberate efforts by those on the Left to lie about the attendance of Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor rally in Washington, DC last month. We were at the rally, and there was easily a million people there. Here's an overhead shot: Now, this doesn't even … Read More
A day without HillBuzz is like a day without sunshine, enjoy…..
Back in college, one of us dated a guy named Mackenzie who was a jackass. He was also incredibly gullible. So, whenever Mackenzie did something bad — like breaking a date, being rude to friends, or getting into one of his moods — creative ways were needed to get him back and even the score. One such maneuver was the deployment of this beret we found in a thrift shop called Poly Esther's in New York. It was the most flaming, ridiculous, unfla … Read More
Click to embiggen. Why Can’t You Selfish Ingrates Feel the First Couple’s Pain? By Kyle-Anne Shiver – August 11, 2010 I for one, have decided to give the president and his lovely better half a break. As Lindsey Graham might intone, the Golden Rule demands it. Yes, demands that we summon our inner self-sacrificial doormat sides, lay down our weary burdens, and give a heaping spoonful of empathy to our first couple. Oh, where to start? The back-bre … Read More
Chrissythehyphenated using her amazing graphics and charts to explain “cap and trade” and other related government foibles…..
“Cap and Tax” and “Cap and Trade” both refer to the same thing – i.e., the government putting an upper limit on the amount of some substance that anyone can dump into the environment, then allowing people who need to emit more to buy “emissions credits” from people who emit less. It has been used before to good effect in reducing the total volume of certain pollutants in the environment. The problem now is th … Read More
Hillbuzz’s chrissythehyphenated ‘splains Obamanomics so that even I understand them 🙂
Why is he so ticked off with Republicans? Because Senate Republicans have blocked at least three Democratic initiatives to extend unemployment insurance. Obama has made job creation his top domestic priority and, for reasons that escape anyone who actually knows something about economics, he seems to believe that extended unemployment benefits will create jobs. Those of us who do know something about economics are well aware th … Read More
HilBuzz Note: Great Merciful Zeus, ChrissytheHyphenated really nailed this graphic. We’ve maintained one of the keys to success for Palin 2012 is removing the word “polarizing” as a weapon the Left can use against Governor Palin. So the more we say, “Polarize This” and depict Palin coming to Washington with an Arctic Blast of house cleaning and butt-kicking, the less effective the Left’s attacks on the Gover … Read More
