    Sean Smith’s Mother Speaks of Treatment from Obama Administration – Video 

    Just horrible.  This isn’t even the entire interview – it was even worse than this.  This woman is being an honest broker.  She wants information on why she had to bury her child.  She doesn’t want to play politics, she just wants answers.

      THIS WOMAN HAS THE RIGHT TO KNOW. I know in my heart that Obama’s administration won’t tell her anything because they can always say stuff like “We can’t tell you because it could compromise National Security.” My deepest condolences to her for her loss.

    What About Our Families Mr. President? 

    CNN has done documentaries on both Gov. Romney and President Obama.  The one for Gov. Romney I thought was well done, very fair and balanced.  The one for President Obama has not aired yet.  It will be airing tomorrow night at 8pm.  Today in an appearance on their Sunday morning chat show, Jessica Yellin revealed that President Obama has not done more outreach to republicans because he wants to spend more time at home as a family.  I give him a great deal of credit for wanted to be a hands on dad.  That is a wonderful thing.  I mean that sincerely.  He brought those two girls into the world and he is responsible for them.  They deserve to have a childhood.

    I was given more than a little grief when I stuck up for Malia’s trip to Mexico last year.  Malia and Sasha go to a private school that is very involved in social justice.  Once you reach middle school there is a week called minimester, the week before spring break, no classroom work is done.  You spend the week doing community service.  Every year the school does some of that community service oversees.  Malia went on the oversees trip to Mexico.  Many on the right went crazy, calling it a waste of tax payer money.  My opinion all along was that she had the right to her childhood without the media glare and people who have never met her or care about her making decisions about her life.

    I also took a great deal of crap for saying that I didn’t think that Sarah Palin should have run for president this year.  I feel that Trig and Piper are too young to be in that type of fishbowl.  I firmly believe this.  People that have very young children should not be in The White House.  Simple things, such as trick or treating become next to impossible with the amount of security that is involved.  I said this about President Obama four years ago.  His daughters are too young.

    I am sorry Mr. President, if being a hands on dad was the priority for you at this point in your life, you should not have run for president.   We didn’t come to you.   You worked hard at convincing people who you should be one to get that job.  You announced for president in February 07, a full 21 months before the election.  Your youngest child Sasha was only 5 years old at the time.  You didn’t think then that you needed to be home evenings and weekends?

    Again, I applaud the fact that he wants to be there for his children in a way his own father was not for him.  Wonderful.  But, Mr. President what about our children?  We have had high unemployment since you have taken office.  People have lost their homes.  People are working two-part times jobs to make ends meet, because they can’t find a full-time position.  Poverty is rising around the country.  People on some form of government entitlements is at an all time high.

    The job of president is 7/24/365 position.  You are always on call.  Everything that you and your family does is put under a microscope.  Your privacy is limited as your schedule is reported daily.  We have the right Mr. President to someone who is going to put all of his energies into the job.  I am sorry, but the job of president doesn’t leave much time for a private life.  If you wanted a private life, you should have chosen another position.  While it is unfair, I don’t care about your families needs.  I care about my own.  Your promises to the people during your campaign was that you were going to change the acrimony that goes on in Washington.  You were going change the tone, do things differently.  You never mentioned during that time that you wouldn’t be going out and doing what needed to be done because you would rather spend time playing video games or whatever you do during your family hours.

    I stand by my past comments of people with young children not running for President.  It isn’t fair to the children, and it isn’t fair to me.  You have spent the last four years saying that the republicans wouldn’t work with you, they have been nothing by obstructionists.  Well, Mr. President it takes two to tango.  It is such a shame that your dance card was full.

    Even Jessica Yellin at CNN asked:

    “If this was such a priority, why didn’t he do it? You can carve out one night a week to go out and socialize and reach across the aisle.”

    Apparently not.  I am sorry, but this comment shows full well why this man doesn’t deserve re-election.  Our families are far less important than his own.  He begged for this job, the least he could have done was made an attempt to do what was necessary to do it well.

    Too Good to Miss – Cooper V. Wasserman-Schultz 

    I know that many on the right call CNN the Communist Network, but Anderson Cooper will go after people of both parties.  He will likely vote for Obama, but he does do his job.

    I have to wonder if the only reason she isn’t removed as the DNC chair is because of the optics.  She is made to look the fool more often than not.

      Shewee, I made it to 4:29 and stopped it; her voice grates on me and his just screams liberal, even if he is trying to do his job, I couldn`t take any more. He kept wanting to read the LASlimes and she kept saying it doesn`t matter that she`s mis-quoting them and she`s gonna keep doing it.

      My question; Did anyone learn anything new ? Not me !

    • signpainterguy 12:02 PM on 08/24/2012 Permalink | Reply

      Anderson TRIED to help DWS by pointing out that she was lying, but she continued to point out to him that lies don`t matter to the left, the message is all that`s important, even if it IS lies !

      Many are pointing to this clip as a case of Anderson taking Debbie BlabberMouth Schultz to school / the woodshed, but he didn`t pull it off. She stood firm. The left`s message is lies, they don`t care that it`s lies or that they`ve been caught lying; they are gonna keep pushing and spreading their message of lies.

      THAT is what I took away from this clip !

    Some Twitter News 

    The AG of the US is facing contempt of congress charges and I see Piers Morgan is talking to the founder of Smashing Pumpkins Way to go @CNN

    Here is an exchange I had with a reporter:

    Him: House panel approves contempt citation; why does it feel like it will be an interesting edition of The Five today ?

    Me: maybe you should ask yourself why your employer has not covered this much. Did you know that their r people who don’t even know?
    Him: it is sort of alarming how many folks have barely covered a case that resulted in a federal agent getting gunned down

    Gee ya think? Parents had to bury their child. They deserve answers

    OOOPS 

    This happened several weeks ago and I just heard about it last night.  Somehow, I get this feeling had Fox made this mistake I would have heard about it sooner.

    I Don’t Know About Roland Martin, But I Fear Obama 

    Roland Martin wrote an OP-ED for CNN based on the premise that Obama’s problem is that no one fears him.  Umm, Mr. Martin he scares the living crap out of me. 

    But this is coming from a man who sees nothing wrong with him trying to schedule a speech on the economy on the same night of the GOP debate. 

    After his Martha’s Vineyard vacation, President Obama signaled he was ready to do battle leading up to the 2012 re-election. But the bungling, and eventual capitulation, over when he would address a joint session of Congress to present a jobs plan shows that we have seen more of the same: a decisive action taken by Obama, only to back down and acquiesce to the GOP.

    After Obama buckled to Speaker John Boehner by postponing the speech to Thursday, a hardcore Democrat, who hates anything the GOP does and has never voted for a Republican for president, texted me the following: “Does the POTUS need back surgery? I think he does. He needs a spine transplant.”

    The debate has been planned for months.  Like it or not Mr. Rowland this is part of the democratic process in this country.  There are plenty of people who are interested in what the GOP candidates have to say.  By trying to schedule the speech at the same time the president was showing that he has no respect for the process, his opponents, let alone the American people who want to watch the debate.  Would Mr. Martin feel the same had President Bush tried to do the same thing during one of the democratic debates four years ago?  Some how I think not.  Then to top it off and make it worse, Carney comes out and says the date and time was coincidental.  Uh huh, I am sure it was.  This was nothing but a stunt pure and simple. A stunt that backfired, and now Mr. Martin is trying to blame for the GOP for it. 

    He is also pointing to the fact that one of his candidates to head the Consumer Protection Bureau will actually have to go through a senate confirmation hearing.  The horror. 

    The White House bowed to Republicans in the Senate in not appointing Elizabeth Warren as head of the Consumer Protection Bureau. She was considered enemy No. 1 for them. So by appointing Richard Cordray, the Obama administration hoped the Senate would recess, allowing them to make his appointment effective during the recess. There was one tiny problem: The only thing the GOP hated more than Warren was the bureau itself. They didn’t recess, and now Cordray will be put through the wringer on Tuesday during his Senate confirmation hearing.

    The problem is the president never appointed her.  She was given a totally different job and will be the likely opponent to Scott Brown next year as he tries to hang onto his senate seat.  It would be very hard to run a government agency while being a first time candidate for senate would it not Mr. Martin?  If you like her so much you should be glad that she got passed over because she could very well end up taking over where Teddy left off.  Agency heads should always go through a senate confirmation hearing.  Period.  I don’t care which party the president is from.  The American people have the right to expect our elected officials to fulfill the constitutional duties afforded to them and confirming heads of agencies is one of them. 

    But, this has to be my favorite:

    It is abundantly clear that President Obama is unwilling to fire back at his critics, who disrespect him and the office of the president. He wants to take the high ground, while his critics are ripping the ground out from underneath him. Instead of taking charge of his agenda, he is willing to let others blow him off to pursue their own

    How delusional is Roland Martin?  Let us see, he himself has played the race card about the tea party.  President Obama slammed a private citizen basically to his face while at the correspondent’s dinner when he spent a good portion of his speech going after Donald Trump.  Remember when Bagdad Bob Gibbs showed some notes he wrote on his hand in order to stick it Sarah Palin?  I guess Roland Martin forgot that.  This president is one of the most thin-skinned we have ever had.

    Fear The Blogosphere 

    According to Newsbusters, on July 23, 2010 two CNN anchors were frothing at the mouth about the Andrew Breitbart/Shirley Sherrod circus.

    “Anchors Kyra Phillips and John Roberts discussed the ‘mixed blessing of the Internet,’ and agreed that there should be a crackdown on anonymous bloggers who disparage others on the Internet.

     “There are so many great things that the internet does and has to offer, but at the same time, Kyra, as you know, there is this dark side,” Roberts said. “Imagine what would have happened if we hadn’t taken a look at what happened with Shirley Sherrod and plumbed the depths further and found out that what had been posted on the Internet was not in fact reflective of what she said.”

    “There’s going to have be a point in time where these people have to be held accountable,” Phillips said. “How about all these bloggers that blog anonymously? They say rotten things about people and they’re actually given credibility, which is crazy. They’re a bunch of cowards; they’re just people seeking attention.”

    Uh, no John, we’re not a bunch of cowards. The corporate-controlled media is the coward.  You didn’t see any blogs selling out our intelligence community like The Washington Post did in its three-part story Top Secret America.

    Bloggers do the work that journalists used to do.  Oh, and the pariah of the dead tree media—The National Enquirer—has scooped the lamestream media so many times we’ve lost count.

    When you visit a blog you know exactly what you’re getting.  Unlike so-called journalists who “claim” not to be biased, bloggers are up front about their biases.  Bloggers on the right, for the most part, are rarely paid.  I know this blogger isn’t.  I don’t advertise here.  The one advertisement you see at the top of the sidebar is placed there gratis because I love everything Old Glory stands for.

    Speaking of the flag, I remember right after the 9/11 attacks, every television station—broadcast and cable—placed an animated American flag in some corner of the screen.  Shortly thereafter, they all came down—all but one—that one was Fox News.  Even they eventually abandoned the practice.

    If you want to talk about “accountability” and “checks and balances” then I suggest you look in the mirror.  Clean up your own act.  You, the “legacy media” sold this nation a grocery boy sent by grocery clerks to be the leader of the free world.  We are all paying for your naiveté and prostitution of the electoral process.

    We bloggers are annoying to politicians and national “journalists” with the attention span of a gnat.   Crooked politicians are having an awful time keeping their actions hidden and every exposure reveals the mainstream media’s abject failings.

    We know that when you bloviate, as you so often do, that you are mining for ratings.  According by TV By The Numbers, your employer, CNN, sucks a big one.

      Um, wasn’t Andrew Breitbart’s name on that article? How’s that anonymous. But you’re right their knee jerk reaction is always to lash out in every direction, particularly at the people–bloggers, citizens–who may be anonymous but who draw almost as many viewers/readers as they do on television.

      They sure don’t like being held accountable, do they? Their twisted little worldview is being challenged, and more importantly exposed, for exactly what it is–blindly ideological, willfully malicious, and completely in lockstep with and mouthpieces of the very people (this administration and Congress) that they are supposed to be keeping a vigilant eye on (oh, gee, now where did I put my WH talking points? I need to read them off in monotone, squinting so I can make out what I’m supposed to say) . Oh, and wrong on fact–of course, consider the “source” of their “news.” Yeah, no wonder they’re howling.

      I just read more about this (http://bit.ly/cJvp7L). This lunatic says, with no idea that what he is saying is . . . well, what he is saying, “If you’re in a place like Iran or North Korea or something like that, anonymous blogging is the only way you could ever get your point of view out without being searched down and thrown in jail or worse,” said Roberts. “But when it comes to a society like ours, an open society, do there have to be some checks and balances, not national, but maybe website to website on who comments on things?”

      The same “free and open society” that he wants to limit and close by violating the First Amendment? Do these people think before they speak?

      And this “gate keeper”? It’s coming. It’s call “net neutrality” (I wrote about it here: http://fuzislippers.blogspot.com/2010/04/net-neutrality-down-payment-aka-starter.html and have enjoyed your own take on that, too)

    Rose-Colored Glasses Are Never Made In Bifocals 

    The bloom is off the rose for CNN’s senior political analyst Gloria Borger.

    Borger is crestfallen over the announcement that the 40-year marriage of Al and Tipper Gore is ending.

    “…the shock it sent is about us, not them. It’s about the way we perceive (and choose to perceive) what’s put in front of our eyes, especially when it comes to the political world.”

    “All of which leads to President Obama. He was elected because he is cool, calm and analytical. That’s what we wanted to see after George W. Bush, so we made him president. But now the disaster in the Gulf has made many of us want to see someone else—with plenty of anger, emotion and bravado. We want him to yell at BP. We want him to loudly tell us he’s whipping the cleanup effort into shape. We can’t tell BP ourselves, so we want him to do it for us. Fair enough. But that’s not the person we elected.”

    Dear woman, this gelding you say “we” made president is an illusion that came with fine print.  Fine print that nobody wanted to read—that is, nobody in the corporate-controlled media.  Americans throughout this nation did not vote for this man.  Those that did were swayed by the puff pieces endlessly spewed by idiotarians just like you.

    The hallmarks of this regime’s actions and speeches seem to be to do many small but sinister things in deep background, a few large and ruinous moves using sleight of hand  in the foreground, give little details—to take no questions, and, if a question is entertained, to give no answer. Crudely put—a circle jerk.

    It is because of the media’s bargain with the devil that this gelding reached the Oval Office.  It is because news readers like you, who abdicated your responsibility to be a robust Fourth Estate, that America and all that she stands for is in peril.

    You should be very proud of yourself Gloria.
