How Arrogant Can One Man Be?

This arrogant: The (Arrogant) One: “I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions”

“I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions.”

B. H. Obama
Meeting With House Democrats
July 29, 2008

[ . . . ]

The Trail and HotAir reported:

Obama was waxing lyrical about last week’s trip to Europe, when he concluded, according to the meeting attendee, “this is the moment, as Nancy [Pelosi] noted, that the world is waiting for.”

The 200,000 souls who thronged to his speech in Berlin came not just for him, he told the enthralled audience of congressional representatives. “I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions,” he said, according to the source.

Warner Todd Huston adds:

This is the sort of thing if said by a Republican would be hung around that candidate’s neck like a mill stone. The epithet of “arrogant” would be the tail pinned forever to him and would appear in every single news story. Should a Republican bespeak of himself in such terms, he’d be branded the next Hitler leading us all to ruin.

In response, the GOP released “Audacity Watch” today.

I would also like to ask how utterly stupid are millions of Americans to not see through this man’s arrogance and utter bullsh!t? I guess we’ll find out in November…

All Hail the Obamessiah! Obama Has Solved Our Oil Problem!

Now, why didn’t any of us lesser beings think of this to solve our oil and high-priced gasoline problem? There’s no need to drill for oil. All we have to do according to the Obamessiah is… keep our vehicle tires inflated!

Ooooooh-Baaaaaaah-mah! Ooooooh-Baaaaaaah-mah!

All hail the genius of the Ooooooh-Baaaaaaah-mah!

Via Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit: Hot Air… Obama Says Blowing Up Your Tires Would Save As Much Gas As Drilling For Oil

There are things you can do individually, though, to save energy. Making sure your tires are properly inflated — simple thing. But we could save all the oil that they’re talking about getting off drilling — if everybody was just inflating their tires? And getting regular tune-ups? You’d actually save just as much!

This is a man who millions of brain-dead Americans are supporting for President. This just tells me that millions of brain-dead Americans are as idiotic, stupid and ignorant as Barack Obama when it comes to simple things like supply and demand and the economy. Pathetic.

Someone Found Time to Visit and Thank America’s Wounded Troops

When was the last time you heard anything like this coming from a Democrat politician? Barack Obama? The mass media? The Left?

That’s what I thought.

Mrs. Greyhawk: Someone Made Time for Our Wounded Troops

Why isn’t this in the news?…

Iraq’s Interior Minister Thanks U.S. Troops for Liberating Iraq — [CNS News]

A top Iraqi official visited wounded American troops at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., Tuesday to thank them for their part in ending Saddam Hussein’s rule in his country.

“We have come … to express our gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices made by these great warriors, soldiers, in freeing the Iraqi people and in helping us in Iraq recover from tyranny and dictatorship,” Jawad Karim al-Bolani, Iraq’s minister of the interior, said through a translator to a handful of journalists in the lobby of the medical center.

…probably because all the major networks are following some other guy

But those at Walter Reed are glad to be appreciated and supported;

“We also want to express our gratitude to the families of all these great men and women and express how important their sacrifices are for our nation,” he added.

[ . . . ]

And the Iraqi PM didn’t make a political brouhaha about it.

The Iraqi government official, who didn’t mention presidential politics, said that he also wanted to visit Walter Reed because it was a “great institution.” “(We wanted) to witness firsthand the level of technical (and) medical sophistication that is being practiced here so that we may learn from it to help our foreign wounded and the many, many victims of terrorism and violence in Iraq,” Bolani added.

This is great, our troops deserve this and so much more.

Indeed.  Kudos and many thanks to Jawad Karim al-Bolani, Iraq’s minister of the interior.  If only our own so-called leaders had the integrity and gratitude you showed to our troops.

Relax. Hopium is Your Friend. Become a Hope-Head!

Yeaaaaaah, maaaan. Let’s all get high on Hopium and vote for Oh-baaaaaaaaaah-mah!

John Kass: Hopium Helps You Forget Several Unpleasant Facts

Hi, my name is John. I’m a hopium addict.

It’s true. Yes, I’m a journalist. And that led to the harder stuff. Then one day, Barack phoned the Tribune and called me “bro.”

Now, I’m addicted to hopium.

So if you’re addicted to hopium, or you’re worried that your loved ones might fall prey to its power, then please click on this link for the hard left’s commercial for Barack Obama

“I never thought it could happen to me,” says a shaggy blond-haired surfer dude in the ad, a guy who should have carried a bong.

“I’ve been living with it for a while now,” says a young woman, talking as if she’d contracted a sexually transmitted disease.

That’s how they discuss hopium. Like a disease. But they have nothing to be guilty about. It’s not some disease that cranky old Republicans can’t get because they stopped having sex.

It’s hopium.

Once you see it, you won’t be the only one addicted to hope. You’ll all become addicted — you, your family and friends, even your pets, except for various crustaceans in your aquarium, which are immune. But you and yours are not immune. You’ll all become hope-heads, together.

It’s America’s most powerful drug. Once on hopium, you won’t care if Iran has nukes or if taxes are raised during a recession or whether Obama keeps flipping and flopping on everything from foreign wiretaps to withdrawing troops from Iraq.

Who cares? Relax. Hopium is your friend.

Just ask Republicans. They sure could use some, especially now that Republican Sen. Ted Stevens was indicted on corruption charges on Tuesday. But like lemmings, Republicans are stubbornly jumping off his bridge to nowhere.

Like today’s liberals, yesterday’s conservatives were also hopped up on hopium. This was years ago, when they yearned to believe in “big government conservatism,” the Rule of Law Except for Scooter Libby and the Rovianization of federal prosecutors.

Now, John McCain is suffering the aftereffects, because most journalists are hope-heads who portray him as if he’s the angry Scottish janitor guy on ” The Simpsons.” And most journalists — judging by their frenetic denials about liberal media bias — are obviously too far gone in the grip of hopium to remain rational.

“This is your brain,” says a woman in the Obama ad holding a hard-boiled egg. She’s an actress who once killed sexy vampires on TV.

“This is your brain on hope!” says an angry fellow sitting next to her, another actor, who played some random guy on “Boy Meets World.”

He’s still angry, holding a newly hatched chicken. It looks like a Peep, only alive and fluffy.

Alive. It’s alive. Hope is alive.

“Hope. It could happen to you,” says the narrator with a deep voice.

Then the screen is filled with Obama ’08 and you realize it’s a campaign commercial for Obama and you start to cry, like when you cry at Kodak commercials, or life insurance spots. We Americans are so emotional these days.

Obama hopium was so powerful, that that first rush of it, well, it sent a tingle up my leg. Or down my leg. Then up. So now, when I read newspaper stories about Obama’s political history, like a recent gooey, puffy profile in the Washington Post and it didn’t mention Obama as a willing member of Chicago’s Daley machine, well, I didn’t get angry.

Not anymore.

Why? Because I’m a hope-head.

Now, I don’t get upset when foreign and national journalists fail to mention Tony Rezko, or the Daley boys, or how the Chicago machine plans to staff the Department of Justice, and the new Department of Homeland Casinos.

Who cares? I’m numb with hopium.

“I mean, this could happen to anybody,” says a man in the ad.

“Anybody,” says a doctor in scrubs.

“I’m sorry, Mom, I’m sorry,” cries the stoned surfer dude.

For eight years — while the Republicans ran things — they thought hope was gone. Now, they think it’s back.

I’m not the only one attending Hope-Heads Anonymous. Millions of us every day — including those 200,000 hope-head Europeans at the Obama rally in Berlin — are caught in its clutches.

One colleague whose blood is clear of hopium watched the ad, and said she wasn’t hopeful. Rather, she was disturbed.

“The ad plays on irony, and at the same time, it supports the Obama propaganda about hope,” she said. “How is that done? Irony on one hand, while driving the Obama message about hope. It’s more than funny.”

What is it, then?

“I don’t know,” she said. “I’m waiting for you to tell me.”

I forgot. But then, they don’t teach civics in schools anymore, so young people targeted by the ad can’t tell me either.

What is this so-called “civics,” anyway? Is it a bone near the pelvis? An economy car? Or, is it an Indonesian cat that eats coffee beans from the tree?

Does it matter, really?

Not if you’re on hopium.

Election 2008: The Ultimate Test of Racial Equality

I’m really getting fed up with this nonsense that if one does not vote for Obama, then one is racist. But this is exactly how the Left and Democrat-supporters have framed this election. The irony is that this shows that it is the Left and the Democrats who are the true racists, not those of us who judge a man by his character, instead of the color of his skin.

Via Amy Holmes at NRO The Corner Blog: Times for the Race Card

[New York Times:] “And before he posed what may be the ultimate test of racial equality — whether Americans will elect a black president — he led students through African-Americans’ long fight for equal status.”

For the Times, this whole election is just that: “the ultimate test of racial equality.” If Obama loses, it can only be for one reason: America failed this test, and is irremediably racist. Debates about Iraq, the economy, energy, taxes, and all the rest, are just sideshows. If you’re racially enlightened, you’ll vote for Obama. If you’re not you won’t.

It must be so gratifying, and self-satisfying, to think like this. No need to think. Just divide the world into right-thinking people and evil racists who vote for Republicans.
