Re: Jeremy Lott’s Paper Bag 1, Obama 0:
I have to be honest, I was ecstatic the IOC rejected Obama — especially after the adulation the MSM/Democrat press heaped on their self-aggrandizing and narcissistic whine fests. The upshot of Obama’s tedious and mind-numbing harangue was so negative that not only was Chicago eliminated in the first round, but members of the IOC are considering banning head’s of state from lobbying them directly. For 24 hours the member’s of the IOC were my heroes.
What is frightening is that the ego-in-chief still thinks his
vaunted teleprompting will keep us safe from terrorists and
provide us with affordable and exceptional universal government
run health care. Hopefully, the Congress will hand him and his
media disciples another defeat on this issue. Followed by massive
GOP wins this year and next year at the ballot box.

With all due modesty (I think) Mr. Lott articulates many of the thoughts and impressions I had and have about Obama. I have always thought he is either the most tone deaf, incompetent, or evil politician that has ever “come down the pike.” And ,of course, “that covers a lot of ground.” How he and his handlers convinced more than half of American voters to pull the lever for him is a complete mystery to me when all of the above are so obvious. Maybe the ACORN and similar unreported or under-reported election irregularities may explain it. Finally, I not only would not buy a used car from the flawed Obama, I would not even take the best used car from him as a gift.
Also as I have thought and said often, why do African-Americans
follow this man blindly and ignore such impressive men such as
Dr. Thomas Sowell and Dr. Walter Williams when the interests and
philosophy of the African American community coincide much more
with the latter two? Well, in a saner world….

Romney? Mr. Typical Politician? Mr. I-Can-Be-What-Your-Seeking-With-No-Ideology-Of-My-Own? Mr. I-implemented-an-Obamacare-before-Obamacare-was-cool? Not in this lifetime. You folks just don’t get it.
NO MORE INSIDERS. Any politician that cannot answer a simple yes/no question with “Yes!” or “No!” instead of their slick version of “well, maybe” are gone.

Above all, HONEST
If you are currently an inside-the-beltway politician and are not
screaming at the top of your lungs about the corruption and
sleaze, you are DISHONEST. You are a coward. Rangel. Dodd.
Geitner. Frank. All the RINO enablers. I recently sent a letter
to Connie Mack expressing my appreciation for his votes on
bailouts and health care. I also asked what he was going to DO to
reverse the decades of creeping socialism. It will take MORE than
just talking the talk.

Could Obama argue his way out of a paper bag? I guess that depends on how you define “paper bag” and who made it, why they made it, where they made it, who’s paying for it, its politics, etc.
Short answer, though: No.

The difference between the Truman-MacArthur flap and the Obama-McChrystal affair is polarity.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
