Obama’s Afghanistan Policy: The Hokey Pokey

“You put your left foot in
You take your left foot out
You put your left foot in
Then you shake it all about
Do the Hokey-Pokey and you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!”

That’s the song that comes to mind upon reading this about the Ditherer-in-Chief’s Afghanistan policy, which he finally — after 10+ months of dithering on it — announced tonight:

Now, he says that his dithering didn’t cost any troops any reinforcements because, supposedly, not a single plan presented to him called for troops before 2010.

First of all: What?

Second of all: It will take about nine months just to get these surge troops into place (I base this on the Iraq experience taking five months — and they had seaports and good roads). So there will be a delay — McCrystal said we had a year to win this thing, and that was three months ago. Obama’s dithering means that we won’t have the troops in place before McCrystal’s war’s-over date.

Third: He says in almost the next breath all troops will be out of Afghanistan in 2011.

As a commenter points out — this means the troops will just be built up in-country by the middle/late 2010 and then he’s going to immediately start evacuating them out again.


Most of the speech was directed to the left, which I guess is expected. I don’t mind explaining this to the left. I mind throwing them substantive bones like cheaping out on the military and promising, effectively, to begin evacuating the moment we’ve just gotten all the surge troops in place.


“You put 30,000 troops in,
you pull 30,000 troops out.
You put 30,000 troops in,
And then you shake them all about.
Have them do the Hokey Pokey
and then turn them right around.
That’s what it’s all about.”

Yep, that’s what it’s all about: Obama using 30,000 troops as political pawns to do the hokey-pokey in Afghanistan.

You know, every time that Obama and his frat-boy spokestool Gibbs say “unprecedented”, I think they mean to say “Un-Presidential”.

What an absolute piece-of-sh!t Obama is to use our military in this manner. God help them, and their families, survive this Un-President.

Is it 2012 yet?

DEC 13, 2009: Hollywood & The History Channel Promote Marxism (UPDATED)

UPDATE 12/09/2009: Here’s yet another example of America-hating from Howard Zinn… going on Iranian TV to blame America for the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001. This sort of dementia will be on full display on The People Speak. Brilliant. Thanks so much, History Channel.

Via Big Hollywood: VIDEO: Howard Zinn Blames America For 9/11 on Iranian TV

Oh, and if that was not enough for you, Howard Zinn is working to get these pro-Marxism, anti-American messages and lessons into the nation’s public schools:  Kids to Meet Marx in School — Care of Hollywood and The History Channel

For pre-Kindergarten thru High School age students.  And considering our current President, Barack Obama, is himself a Marxist and worked with anti-American terrorist radical William Ayers on the Woods Fund and the Chicago Annenberg Challenge to spread just such messages to the children of Chicago’s public schools, I’m sure Obamarx has no problem with the plan by Zinn and The History Channel to bring these lessons to schools across the nation.



So I was going through the live updates on my Facebook wall and I notice that The History Channel Facebook page is promoting their upcoming show this December 13th called “The People Speak”. They add a video preview which has a still of Viggo Mortensen, noted liberal douchebag. So this got my skepticism going immediately.

So I decided to check out the “trailer” preview. Sure enough, another America-hating liberal douchebag, Matt Damon, is in it as well. So I immediately go to Google to find out more about this “The People Speak” show, as I know Damon and Viggo would never appear in anything which would promote a good portrayal of American history.

Sure enough, the first suggestion upon typing in “The People Speak” into google immediately comes up with noted Marxist Howard Zinn. Apparently this show is inspired by his America-hating book “The People’s History of the United States”.

So, it is not enough to have a Marxist and his merry minions in the White House and controlling Congress, but now we also need to be reminded by Hollywood Marxists this Christmas that our country’s history sucks.

Thanks, Hollywood! Thanks, History Channel!   This is just what I wanted from Santa this year!

Wow, check out the comments being left at the “The People Speak” link.  People are defending Marxist Howard Zinn’s book and calling Matt Damon “well educated”.  Well, I can now understand how we got Marxist Barack Obama as President, what with geniuses like this getting their sense of American history from Howard Zinn and Matt Damon.  Oy. Here is a sampling:

Hey Michael, Howard Zinn’s book “A People’s History of the United States” is a great text, unless you’re part of the aristocratic exploitative class. It tells American history as it really was, not some John Wayne version.


People’s History is Marxist? Did you actually READ the book? I think this is a great idea. VERY FEW people like history and maybe by adding ‘celebrities’, the ‘Reality TV America’ might actually LEARN SOMETHING! I abhor TV personally and despise when people are more concerned with who is winning Dancing with the Stars than following the war in Afghanistan… but that is just me. As for celebrities, Matt Damon is very well educated and it would surprise you which celebrities have beauty AND brains (Salma Hayek anyone?). Don’t be so quick to judge something that could bring the ‘mindless masses’ into OUR fold. I embrace this as not to educate us historians but to educate those who care less about history.

As of 5:10pm ET, there were 2 people who agreed with the above comment. Oy.

OMG doesn’t anyone GET IT????? These are actors, who are trained to be ORATORS AS WELL AS ACTORS, that are reading historical documents that remind us of why we’re American in the first place!!! Have you read aloud lately? I’m sure it sounds like crap, and I would rather listen to a sexy Matt Damon or sultry Marissa Tomei than you guys belch out the declaration of independence. Did anyone even other to check out the Aniboom stuff that got done w/this? Did anyone even bother to see the trailers and open their eyes to SEE what this is? I’m all for every American owning a gun, but i’m also for equality and prosperity for all not just for Sarah Palin and her idiot crew. Everyone needs to get over themselves and shut up. If you don’t like it, stop being a fan, take your viewing elsewhere cause I’m sure History doesn’t want your support!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, these are your fellow Americans and part of the voting electorate. The OMG! Generation. Feel better now?

Merry Christmas, courtesy of Hollywood and The ‘History’ Channel!

He’s a Chump, a Rube, a Simple-Minded Dupe

Yeah, this pretty much sums up the opinion I have had of Mike Huckabee since the Primaries last year. When he exposed his shameless bigotry for all to see, going after Mitt Romney on his Mormonism, I knew right then this guy was a flaky a-hole. Why *anyone* continues to support this jackass, I have no idea.

The first is that I find him so transparent and shameless in his manipulations that I weep for those who are somehow prey to it. He’s underhanded and mercenary and self-pitying and always manages to be nasty with that smooth, soft demeanor. I just hate his guts on a personal level. It bothers me that he’s so damned obvious about his manipulations and that many people’s bullshit detectors are so defective they fail to go off.

The second is that he is simply not savvy enough to be President. He’s a chump, a rube, a simple-minded dupe. We don’t know yet what his reasons for pardoning this particular possibly-oversentenced repeat felon are, but we know the long sordid history of his pardons: left-leaning pastors knew they only had to utter the magic words “Saved by the Grace of Christ” to Huckabee and there was a fair shot that hardened career criminals would get the Get out of Jail Free card they sought.

Can someone be this easily gulled, over and over, and yet be crafty and devious enough to defend America against a host of enemies and adversaries?

[ … ]

I think he’s only capable of fooling the 20% of the country that is the most fooled by his particular act (i.e., those who want to believe the best about a man representing himself as God-fearing and morally-straight) and that’s not enough for me.

Another Kind of Evil Which We Must Fear Most

I talked about this here. Now reading this makes me angry all over again: Mike Huckabee On Cop Killer Clemmons: I Am Responsible For His Commutation (Video)

Clemmons reportedly told acquaintances the night before the attack to “watch the news” because he was going to “kill cops.” No one reported his comments to police until after the attack.

Just brilliant.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

4 police officers are dead, because ‘good’ people did nothing.

How many more people need to die, before Americans get off their asses and start doing something to stop evil before it triumphs?

“Trust Me, I’m a Scientist!”

So, when are we going to get some commercials akin to the Dr Pepper “Trust me, I’m a Doctor” commercials for the AGW-hoaxers? “Trust me, I’m a Scientist”. The first one could be Dr Venkman from Ghostbusters. The second one could be Dr Emmett Brown from Back to the Future. The third one could be Dr Jekyll. Any other famous fake scientists anyone can think of?
