AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

Yes, Unlike Obama, Sarah Palin Has Actual Accomplishments in Her Career

Not that anyone would know that, considering the only thing about which the mass media seems concerned with regards to Sarah Palin is SNL-type reporting or National Enquirer-type reporting. Commenter Dan here, though, reminds us that Sarah Palin actually does have quite a good history of impressive political accomplishments:

I often marvel at how people IGNORE all of Sarah Palin’s accomplishments. They act like she has none and is popular for no particular reason other then people identify with her. Please share these FACTS.

1. Sarah took on corruption in her own party and risked her career in politics doing it. Name one politician who has done this that is currently serving. By the way, has Obama asked Charlie Rangel to step aside? NO, they are in the same party after all.

2. Sarah cut the budget in the Alaska which is unheard of. She saved money when the oil money was flowing in so now when the oil price dropped they are not cutting police or education or raising taxes to balance the budget. How are New York and California doing by the way on their budgets? How is Obama doing with his deficit projections? 9 trillion right?

3. Sarah TOOK ON THE MOST POWERFUL COMPANIES IN THE WORLD, the big oil companies to make sure Alaskans were getting a fair shake and SHE WON. Has Obama bucked the big labor unions in a similar fashion? Or the trial lawyers?

4. Sarah negotiated a natural gas pipeline deal that will result in the largest construction project in North America which will produce REAL JOBS and will provide CLEAN energy to the lower 48. Has Obama ever… oh never mind, its obvious he has not done anything like this and neither has anyone else who currently serves.

These are major accompishments and cannot be denied. Now, if you question whether the electorate knows about these things and therefore would not vote for her because they did not know them, I grant you that, but that is what a book tour, interviews, and a CAMPAIGN is for.

I stand with her. …

As do I. And the more Americans find out about her, I believe they will too.

UPDATE 12/03/2009: I decided to look at the referrers for this post and I came across this one. In the comments, people are all up in arms about me claiming that Obama has no accomplishments — (and no, despite what one of the idiot commenters states, winning a Presidential election is not an “accomplishment”. It’s akin to saying that I accomplish something by succeeding in a job interview and getting a job. Obama passed a job interview. Big deal. That is not an accomplishment. What one does on the job is an accomplishment.) — and many were copy/pasting the below list of “accomplishments” for Obama. Upon doing a Google Search, it seems this has been spammed all over the internet on various comment sections… never with any attribution, never with any citations to verify anything. So, in the interest of fairness, I decided to look into this shining example of Barack Obama’s grand political accomplishments:

– Graduated first black president of Harvard Law Review having won trust and support of conservative members.

So? What were his accomplishments while President of the Harvard Law Review? What did he write? What did he review? Anything? If he was such a great President of the Harvard Law Review, why can’t we know about his accomplishments there? Or was his only ‘accomplishment’ the fact that he was a BLACK President? Sorry, that’s not an accomplishment.

— Passed over 600 high-money law firm offers to work for civil rights practice at fractional pay.

This is an accomplishment? Please. Try harder.

— Added health insurance for 20,000 children, welfare reforms, earned-income tax credits, and increased minimum wage in Illinois.

Added health insurance for children? Was that as a supplement to his wife’s patient dumping at the University of Chicago Hospitals?

‘Welfare reforms’, huh? Does this mean that he helped to get people OFF of welfare and into jobs? Or did he simply enact “welfare reforms” to help keep people enslaved to the government and stuck on welfare?

‘Increased minimum wage’. Which is a job-killer, which hurts the low-income, low-skilled, minority community the most. Brilliant ‘accomplishment’.

— Reformed death-penalty cases, requiring that interrogations be video-recorded. Passed Illinois Senate 58-0. Signed into law by Illinois governor who first opposed Obama’s bill. Obama succeeded by building consensus with conservative opposition.

Ah yes, his death penalty reform. Which included voting against a bill that would have delivered the death penalty to gang members who murder first responders. Not to mention, Obama was the only member of the Illinois State Senate to vote against a bill that prohibited early release for sexual predators. Wow, great accomplishments there!

— Opposed Iraq war publicly, long before invasion. Accurately depicted it as of undetermined length, undetermined cost, undetermined objective, with a great likelihood of civil war breaking out.

He publicly opposed the Iraq war effort. Wow. What an accomplishment. And he was wrong on every account about it. Thanks only to the leadership of President Bush, the COIN (Counter Insurgency) plan and leadership of GEN Petraeus and the hard work of our US military, the Iraq war effort has been a great success. I don’t call being against something which is a success, to be an “accomplishment”. Nice try.

— Expanded program to locate and dismantle stray Russian WMD with Republican Senator Lugar.

Hmmm, I find it interesting that upon doing a Google search to verify this info, the only citation is this ‘list of accomplishments’ being copy/pasted all over different websites’ comment sections. Without, of course, any link to a credible source of the info.

— Passed major ethics and lobbying reform bill with Russ Feingold, insisting upon tougher restrictions around gifts, meals, etc. And extended the interval preventing exiting congress members from moving directly into lobbyist positions.

While this is true, people are honestly putting up Barack Obama as some example of good ethics? That’s a laugh! Let’s see… his shady land deal with corrupt Tony Rezko, his funneling of taxpayer money to his wife’s hospital, his wife’s patient dumping scheme at the University of Chicago Hospitals, his time on the Woods Fund with terrorist Billy Ayers shuffling money to ACORN and his radical mentor Rev Wright’s Church TUCC, just to name a few.

Let’s also not forget him getting his opponents kicked off the ballots when he ran for State Legislature and working with the Chicago media to smear Senator Jack Ryan by illegally releasing his divorce records to the public to force him to drop out of the race. Yeah, Barack Obama is one shining example of ethics in politics. Riiiiight. And I don’t think anyone in their right mind wants to talk about Obama’s record on lobbyists, including his lies about cozying up to the oil industry lobbyists.

— Toured Kuwait, Jordan, Israel, and Palestinian territories, telling Palestinian Authority Abbas that US would never recognize Hamas leaders until they renounced mission to attack Israel.

Yeah, ‘just words’ — as Obama would say — considering Obama is best buddies with two Israel-haters in Rev Jeremiah Wright and terrorist Billy Ayers. Not to mention his cozying up to PLO operative Rashid Khalidi in LA. Obama has a long record of being anti-Israel and pro-Palestine.

— Cosponsored Secure Orderly Immigration Act by John McCain. Passes Senate 62-36. Makes undocumented persons who have been here 5+ years only allowed to stay and apply for citizenship if they pay back-taxes, learn English, and have no criminal record.

Oh please. Not even John McCain’s supporters believed this was anything more than political bullshit. There was no need to pass this “Act”, since the laws were already on the books. The problem is that no one ENFORCES them. THAT is what I am talking about when I say ACCOMPLISHMENT. An accomplishment is something which produces RESULTS. Passing Acts and Laws are not accomplishments. Now, if those acts and laws produce results, THEN they can be deemed accomplishments. But just passing meaningless Acts and Laws which never have any effect on anything, since no one enforces them… not an accomplishment.

— Communicated frankly to Michigan automaker executives of need to increase fuel-efficiency standards by at least 3% per year.

OOOOOOH, he communicated! That’s an accomplishment? Communicating. Wow. High standards you have there. What did this communicating accomplish? NOTHING.

— Many aisle-crossing bi-partisan solutions throughout 10 years of senate experience (8 state, 2 federal).

Really? So what are they? Funny you don’t list them, just state something without attribution or citation. Brilliant.

— 100% approval rating from the League of Conservation Voters, Planned Parenthood. National Education Association gives him an “A” on their most recent scorecard.

OOOOOH! Now approval ratings by left-wing organizations are accomplishments! Wowee!

— In Illinois State Senate sponsored 780 bills, 280 were signed into law.

Really? What are they? What did these laws ACCOMPLISH (yes, there’s that word again — accomplishment)? Did he sponsor a jay-walking bill? Did he sponsor a walking and chewing gum at the same time bill? And what is the reason for 500 bills not being signed into law? Were they meaningless crap he sponsored just to make it look like he was doing something while in office? Funny how you don’t say.

Also, while you’re looking up that information, you might want to find out which ones were bills sponsored by other Democrats, but had Obama’s name added to them thanks to Obama’s buddy Emil Jones.

— In first year as US Senator, held 39 town-hall meetings throughout his state, sponsored 152 bills and resolutions, and cosponsored 427 more.

OOOOOOOOH! Holding meetings! Sponsoring and cosponsoring bills… which you don’t list. More non-accomplishments! Great job!

— Designated US Senate point person on ethics by Speaker Harry Reid.

Oh boy, the liberal idiot Reid appointed a man completely devoid of a history of good ethics, with absolutely no time in the Senate, as a point person on something on which he has no experience. What an accomplishment!

So this is the Obama-lovers’ defense of their messiah’s record of “accomplishments”. Pathetic.

Obama vs Palin – Who’s More Springer-ish?

Jerry Springer, that is.

The mass media is *still* in full attack, smear and destroy mode with Sarah Palin. Apparently, they find so much over which to ridicule her and her family, yet found absolutely nothing regarding Barack Obama and his 2-decade political history and awkward family upbringing.

Via HotAir Headlines, I thought this comment there in response to a Palin-hater was great:

This whole Sarah Palin thing has just turned into one great big disgusting episode of the Jerry Springer show. Why can’t she just crawl back into whatever hole in the ground she came out of and leave the public spotlight forever. It’s the very least her and her horribly dysfunctional family could do for the country and the Republican Party.

John on April 11, 2009 at 6:11 PM

And yet, we have a president whose mother briefly married his father, after their relationship ended married another man, left Barak in the care of her parents for years at a time, and he has siblings and half-siblings scattered all over the globe.

I could go on and on, but I’ll end with the breaking story that his half-brother Samson apparently wasn’t allowed to get a visa in the U.K. over sex assault charges.

Obama brother accused of UK sex assault — Samson denied British visa after incident with teen girl in Berkshire

But, yeah, Palin has a “dysfunctional” family with her husband of 20+ years, several children living in their home with both parents, one son in the military and a daughter living in their home with her baby.

Heh. Yep. Apparently, having a normal, run-of-the-mill American family is apparently bad for American politics. But the following is definitely worthy of an American President:

* choosing a racist, America-hating, Black Supremacist preacher as one’s spiritual and political mentor for 2 decades
* choosing a racist, America-hating, Black Supremacist “Christian” Church for one’s marriage and for one’s daughters to attend
* choosing an America-hating, Communist domestic terrorist as one’s political mentor and using his political connections to jump start one’s political career
* choosing to work for an America-hating, Communist domestic terrorist and spreading his ideology within the Chicago school system by way of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge
* having one’s grandmother live in America illegally for years
* supporting and campaigning for one’s radical Islamist cousin as he runs for office in one’s native Kenya
* marrying a woman who is ashamed of the racist United States until her husband wins a political Party’s nomination for President

As commenter “cs89” states, I could go on and on and on. The people who ridicule Sarah Palin’s personal life as a disgrace to politics yet worship at the throne of Obama are absolute pathetic tools.

Teleprompter Jesus vs El Rushbo – Here’s a Thought…

What would be interesting would be for the mass media to do an analysis of what Rush has been doing (charities, military support, etc) and saying (conservative principles) since he has been on the air in 1988… and compare that to what The Obama has been doing (racist Church, communist, racist, Marxist terrorist buddies Ayers and Wright along with ACORN, Chicago Annenberg Challenge, dealings with Rezko, support for Raila Odinga in Kenya, etc) and saying (communist, terrosist-appeasing, anti-Israel, Marxism, Alinsky-ism, etc) since 1988.

That would be quite the eye opener if done in a completely objective way.  

Then we can have a true discusson about what is and is not “un-American”.

A Video Portrait of America’s Next President, Barack Obama

The America-Hating, Terrorist Friends of Barack Obama

John Hinderaker at Power Line has a good post up about Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. For those of you who have not been doing your research about Barack Obama’s background and circle of friends, they are two left-wing radicals from the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization who both have a deep hatred of the United States of America.

For those of you keeping track, these are just two more in a long list of friends within Barack Obama’s circle of advisors, friends, acquintances and fellow politicians:

* Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Jr. (long time close friend and spiritual advisor, preacher of America-hating and the racist, Islam-sympathizing, Black-supremacist Black Liberation Theology)
* Michelle Obama (wife)
* Raila Odinga (Islamic Sharia Law supporting cousin and politician in Kenya)
* Louis Farrakhan (Radical, racist Islamic Supremacist of the Nation of Islam honored by Barack Obama’s church, Trinity United Church of Christ)
* Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn (America-hating radicals and members of the domestic terror organization, Weather Underground)

I could also add to this list some of Barack Obama’s foreign policy advisors who are anti-Semitic and sympathizers of Muslim countries and radical dictatorships. Not to mention that Barack Obama has supporters in Texas who worship the former murderer Che Guevera.

But just posting the names and saying who they are and what they represent sometimes is just not enough for people. This is why people such as John Hinderaker are getting out the details on his blog that the mass media is not reporting: The Friends of Barack Obama, Part 1

When Illinois State Senator Alice Palmer decided to retire in 1995, she hand-picked local left-winger Barack Obama as her successor. In order to introduce Obama to influential liberals in the district, she held a function at the home of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. This was, really, the beginning of Obama’s political career, and it linked him forever with Ayers and Dohrn, with whom, as his campaign has acknowledged, he continues to have a friendly relationship.

Ayers and Dohrn were famous radicals, and fugitives from the law, in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Dohrn, actually, was the more famous of the two; she was the head, as I recall, of Students for a Democratic Society or one of its factions. Dohrn was crazy. She is the only public figure, to my knowledge, to approve publicly and enthusiastically of the Charles Manson murders.

Ayers was a would-be murderer of soldiers and policemen, but he wasn’t a very good terrorist. He had the ill fortune to be the subject of a profile in the New York Times on September 11, 2001, in which he said that he didn’t regret his attempted murders and only wished that he had planted more bombs.

In last week’s Pennsylvania debate, Barack Obama was finally asked about his friendship with, and the political support he has accepted from, Ayers and Dohrn. Obama replied that Ayers had done reprehensible things forty years ago, when Obama was eight years old, and scoffed at the idea that Ayers’s ancient history could be relevant. That was disingenuous, of course, given Ayers’s 2001 regrets.

It turns out that we don’t have to go back as far as 2001 to find that Obama’s friends are as unrepentant as ever. Just last year, Ayers and Dohrn attended a reunion–no kidding–of what must have been the tiny remnant of SDS members who still haven’t figured out that they were wrong about everything. Listen to what Bill Ayers, who hosted Barack Obama’s first fundraiser, has to say about the United States. Not when Obama was eight years old, but in 2007 [ … ]

At the same event, Obama’s friend and supporter Bernadine Dohrn described the United States as “the monster.” Obama was 47 years old at the time [ … ]

Barack Obama has declined to repudiate or distance himself from his neighbors, supporters and friends, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. There is a certain consistency of perspective among Obama’s friends and mentors, which can be summed up in Jeremiah Wright’s memorable phrase: “God damn America.” [ … ]

Be sure to go to Power Line to listen to the audio Mr. Hinderaker has provided of these America-hating, scumbag friends of Obama.

Also, as many all over the anti-idiotarian and military blogs have noted numerous times, if this were John McCain being long-time friends with a terrorist who used to blow up abortion clinics and kill abortion doctors and was not repentent at all, it would immediately end John McCain’s political career (and rightfully so). The utter hypocrisy and sick double-standard is ridiculous with the Left and the Democratic Party as a whole.
