What could be more nuttier and dumber than liberals voting for Obama? For the left, that would be the right voting Palin for President of the United States. Yet, the left cannot begin to quantify the reasons why. All they know is something is wrong with it, while Obama and his definitive and destructive policies get a pass.
How the Ding-bats on the left view Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin’s Accomplishments
Since 1992, Sarah Palin has served on Wasilla’s city council, was elected as Mayor of Wasilla and served 2 terms. In 2006 she was elected Governor of Alaska.
On July 3, 2009, Palin announced at a press conference that she would not run for reelection in the 2010 Alaska gubernatorial election and would resign before the end of July. Palin gave a speech offering reasons for her departure. She argued that both she and the state have been expending an “insane” amount of time and money to address “frivolous” ethics complaints filed against her. She also said that her decision not to seek reelection would make her a lame duck governor. Palin did not take questions at the press conference. A Palin aide was quoted as saying Palin was “no longer able to do the job she had been elected to do. Essentially, the taxpayers were paying for Sarah to go to work every day and defend herself.”
A quick review of Obama’s Background and First Year in Office.
Obama was hired as director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP), a church-based community organization originally comprising eight Catholic parishes in Greater Roseland and worked there as a community organizer from June 1985 to May 1988.
Obama entered Harvard Law School in late 1988. After graduating with a Juris Doctor (J.D.) magna cum laude from Harvard in 1991, he returned to Chicago.
From April to October 1992, Obama directed Illinois’s Project Vote, a voter registration drive with a staff of ten and 700 volunteers; it achieved its goal of registering 150,000 of 400,000 unregistered African Americans in the state.
For 12 years, Obama was a constitutional law professor at the University of Chicago Law School. In 1993 he joined Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, a law firm of 12 attorneys that specialized in civil rights litigation and neighborhood economic development, where he was an associate for three years from 1993 to 1996, then of counsel from 1996 to 2004, with his law license becoming inactive in 2002.
Obama was a founding member of the board of directors of Public Allies in 1992. Obama served on the board of directors of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge from 1995 to 2002, as founding president and chairman of the board of directors from 1995 to 1999. He also served on the board of directors of the Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the Center for Neighborhood Technology, and the Lugenia Burns Hope Center.
Obama was elected to the Illinois Senate in 1996 and reelected to the Illinois Senate in 1998 and was reelected again in 2002. In January 2003, Obama became chairman of the Illinois Senate’s Health and Human Services Committee.
Obama was sworn in as a senator on January 4, 2005. The National Journal ranked him as the “most liberal” senator based on an assessment of selected votes during 2007; in 2005 he was ranked sixteenth most liberal, and in 2006 he was ranked tenth.
Raised as a Muslim and with over 20 years of attendance at a Chicago church with a pastor’s anti-Semite and anti-American preachings, Obama today nurtures embedded socialist values and has carefully surrounded himself with radical leftist thinkers, many of them now appointed as “Czars” in his administration.
Obama’s thinking and vision for America embodies just about every value America has fought against for over 230 years. Many Americans have sacrificed their lives to preserve the way of life which Obama seems bent upon changing.
Thanks to Obama’s keen and well honed community organizing skills, Amercia faces generations of overwhelming and alarming debt. With the bailouts and handouts of his socialist policies and with the specter of HR3962 and Crap and Trade, it appears there is no end in sight.
A typical left-wing voter?
Where’s the Concern?
With all of the adverse and self-inflicted effects of Obama’s policies you would think liberals would share in the rest of America’s concern for her future. But alas, it appears liberals only have the vacant head to worry about and focus upon Sarah Palin. That’s it. Palin. We have unemployment rates which the country has not seen in over 25 years and an economy falling down around us brought upon us through decades of Democrat’s inept and arrogant mismanagement of flawed socialist programs and Palin is their target of worry. It’s clear liberals aren’t mentally fit to operate a toothbrush without supervision, much less America’s economy.
In a November 17, 2009, article about Associated Press dedicating 11 reporters to “Fact Check” her new book, “Going Rogue”, Palin eloquently makes the point about misplaced concerns.
The AP claims Palin misstated her record with regard to travel expenses and taxpayer-funded bailouts, using statements widely reported elsewhere. But it also speculated into Palin’s motives for writing “Going Rogue: An American Life,” stating as fact that the book “has all the characteristics of a pre-campaign manifesto.”
Palin quickly hit back on a Facebook post titled “Really? Still Making Things Up?”
“Imagine that,” the post read. “11 AP reporters dedicating time and resources to tearing up the book, instead of using the time and resources to ‘fact check’ what’s going on with Sheik Mohammed’s trial, Pelosi’s health care takeover costs, Hasan’s associations, etc. Amazing.”
The attraction to Palin doesn’t appear to be partisan, since AP didn’t fact-check recent political tomes by Republicans Rudy Giuliani or Newt Gingrich.
President Barack Obama has repeatedly claimed that his budget would cut the deficit by half by the end of his term. But as Heritage analyst Brian Riedl has pointed out, given that Obama has already helped quadruple the deficit with his stimulus package, pledging to halve it by 2013 is hardly ambitious. The Washington Post has a great graphic which helps put President Obama’s budget deficits in context of President Bush’s.
For the challenged who declare we don't know what we're talking about, the short lines mean less, the long lines (in red) mean more. Which side of the graph would any thinking American prefer? (Studies show times required to answer that question may vary if a liberal.)
What’s driving Obama’s unprecedented massive deficits? Spending
. Say it slowly, now … S-p-e-n-d-i-n-g.
- President Bush expanded the federal budget by a historic $700 billion through 2008. President Obama would add another $1 trillion. (Psst. That makes it a new historic number which eclipses Bush’s. Yep. It would.)
- President Bush began a string of expensive financial bailouts. President Obama is accelerating that course.
- President Bush created a Medicare drug entitlement that will cost an estimated $800 billion in its first decade. President Obama has proposed a $634 billion down payment on a new government health care fund.
- President Bush increased federal education spending 58 percent faster than inflation. President Obama would double it.
- President Bush became the first President to spend 3 percent of GDP on federal antipoverty programs. President Obama has already increased this spending by 20 percent.
- President Bush tilted the income tax burden more toward upper-income taxpayers. President Obama would continue that trend.
- President Bush presided over a $2.5 trillion increase in the public debt through 2008. Setting aside 2009 (for which Presidents Bush and Obama share responsibility for an additional $2.6 trillion in public debt), President Obama’s budget would add $4.9 trillion in public debt from the beginning of 2010 through 2016.
Those figures, in case you’re wondering, include spending on Iraq and Afghanistan during the Bush years. While Bush did fund the wars through emergency supplementals (not the regular budget process), that spending did not simply vanish. It is included in the numbers above.
Presidents Bush and Obama share responsibility for the FY 2009 budget deficit that overlaps their administrations, before President Obama assumes full budgetary responsibility beginning in FY 2010. Overall, President Obama’s budget would add twice as much debt as President Bush over the same number of years.
Conservatives Need to Wake Up To The Idiotic and Infantile Policies of The Left.
This country cannot afford one more day of the policies of Barack Obama and Democratic Party. They are literally destroying America’s way of life, her stature among the world community, the dollar and her future.
I have often said conservatives get what they deserve if they don’t get off their collective butts and vote. With the polls showing conservatives outnumbering liberals 2 to 1, it would appear many conservatives chose to stay home, setting the stage for that Obamanation we have sitting in the White House today.
Maybe the silent and apathetic will wake up. Maybe the liberal and radical left tide can be turned in 2010 and 2012. But it will take more than 4 years to fix the damage already done.
