Picking up on a Godfather comment. The Obama style. Among the banksters. Plus more.
YOU’RE IN, PHIL
Re: Philip Klein’s You’re Out, Tom:
Hi there good people —
I love — make that LOVE — The American Spectator and
the opinions you publish. I read most but rarely follow the
visitor comment threads that follow. Today, I ran through all the
comments attached to the “You’re Out, Tom” piece by Philip Klein.
Actually, I was looking to see if anyone else picked up on the
delicious, but unstated, look back to the role of Michael
Corleone in the original Godfather. The juxtaposition in
concept with Mr. Obama is wonderful.

Editor’s note: Alan Brooks got it, at 5:55 p.m. yesterday: “‘You’re out, Tom.’ Mikey to Tom Hagen, right?”
I dearly hope someone in the Republican Party is collecting the plethora of precious lines pouring out from Democrats making excuses for their paragons of tax-evading purity.
If, that is, they can keep from choking and gagging every time
they read them.

IT PAYS TO HAVE A FRIEND NAMED OBAMA
Re: George Neumayr’s Class Carfare:
Thank you Mr. Neumayr for pointing out that the Emperor has yet to get dressed, and that his court is also sporting clothes from the same haberdashery!
However, the spin that the MSM is putting on all of this is that
they failed to pay some taxes, when in reality the miscreants
have failed to report income. Had you or I failed to report a
paltry quarter million in income, we would surely be in tax court
facing penalties that include incarceration. Mr. Obama took pains
to explain yesterday that he did not want to even hint that there
are 2 sets of rules, you know, the pesky old double standard.
Except that there ARE 2 sets of rules, and Mr. Geithner proved it

Watching the unfolding debacle between the Great One’s minions and a stumbling, tripping, drunken Congress, I see the great ocean liner has hit the iceberg. Folks are still in the control room assuring passengers the jolt they felt was a small bump in the night, while sharks from Al Qaeda start gathering around the vessel. Tax issues? I am more concerned with a statement yesterday from the Great One’s staff, after a shaken Gen. Petraeus left the White House. The statement read, and I quote:
“In their report, the Chiefs concluded that the existing American goals in Afghanistan, established by the Bush administration, are overly broad and ambitious. The report does not call for abandoning U.S. hopes of turning Afghanistan into a moderate Western-style democracy, or for halting counter-narcotics efforts, but it does suggest making those steps part of a long-term vision, rather than a goal.”
I see talk show hosts fixed on jabbering wildly about the cheating crooks in Congress, when what should be spoken aloud is the military’s abandonment. With a son on his 9th tour (yes, ninth), I am on my knees imploring my Heavenly Father to just bring him home safely to his family, his wife and lovely little girl, “Liberty.” Our men and women fight for precious liberty and freedom, not for a vague “vision.”
Someone needs to focus on the fact (both on radio and in your
management) about where all this is heading when we suffer a
catastrophic loss, militarily speaking. Yesterday it was also
announced that if any generals reproached the Great Ones desire
to leave Iraq in under 16 months, they could pack their bags and
find a job elsewhere. No one talks about these things but we
military families are watching unfold the final assurance, which
some of us knew, that Obama is worse than a Chicago politician.
He plans to dismantle the United States as we know it.
