Obama Pulls Iraq Rug From Under Democrats
Thank you, Senator Barack Obama, for providing a POWERFUL talking point to the Bush Administration in its efforts to fund our troops in Iraq WITHOUT a surrender timetable. Obama provided this talking point on April 1 but the April Fools joke was on his fellow Democrats. What Obama said has absolutely ENRAGED the Leftwing Blogosphere as you can see in this Daily KOs KOmmie THREAD angrily titled by Head KOmmie KOs himself, "Obama caves to Bush." So let us now see why the Leftwing in general and the KOmmies in particular are so outraged by Obama in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that this Obama statement has pushed the Democrats so far over the edge that they are now taking the defunding the troops suicide plunge, is in the [brackets]:
Obama caves to Bush
[Obama acknowledged Reality.]
I wish this was an April Fools Day joke:
[More like a Halloween prank.]
If President Bush vetoes an Iraq war spending bill as promised, Congress quickly will provide the money without the withdrawal timeline the White House objects to because no lawmaker "wants to play chicken with our troops," Sen. Barack Obama said Sunday.
[It now turns out that Dingy Harry IS playing chicken with our troops since he is now taking the Chickie Run Suicide Plunge over the Defunding cliff.]
What a ridiculous thing to say. Not only is it bad policy, not only is it bad politics, it's also a terrible negotiating approach.
[Terrible negotiating approach = Pulling the rug from under the Democrats.]
Instead of threatening Bush with even more restrictions and daring him to veto funding for the troops out of pique, Barack just surrendered to him.
[I prefer to call it "bowing to reality" but feel free to damn it as "surrender."]
Let me repeat that -- Obama just surrendered to Bush.
[Let me repeat that -- Thank you Barack Obama.]
Is Obama's statement some sort of capitulation, or is it triangulation by an amateur? Obama surrendered his moral high ground well before there was any perceived need. Poker ain't his game.
[He went all in holding nothing but a Joker as a high card.]
This man is only 27 months out of the Illinois General Assembly (which consists basicly of four legislative leaders and 173 wooden Indians). If he is not ready to be elected President yet, better the voters learn now and not later.
[GASP! You mean our Savior, Barack Obama, is inexperienced? How could we have pulled the wool over our own eyes?]
Obama unfortunately makes it sound like caving in will be the only option after a veto. We have other options.
[Dingy Harry just chose the suicidal defunding the troops option.]
A major unforced error, awefully hard to excuse.
[Yeah. "Awefully" hard to excuse a major unforced error.]
we have put Bush into position for a beautiful knock-out blow, and instead Obama just walks away!
[Kind of like when Hitler was in position to deliver a knock-out blow to Moscow in the summer of 1941 but instead diverted his armies south to take Kiev and eventually LOSE the war.]
This is typical Obama, IMO. He is so all over the board, he has no clue who he is or what he stands for. Rock star indeed. He has given new meaning to the phrase, empty suit. "All talk, no go." I don't like Hillary, and I don't trust her one bit; but I can tell you exactly who and what Hillary represents.
Third party here I come unless the Dems wise up and select a candidate with integrity.
[Go Green! Run Ralph, RUN!!!]
Another plus for Clark, he's the ONLY Dem I've seen/heard acknowledge and post about the problems with the e-voting machines.
[You think Clark is a viable candidate in the running? And what acid are you dropping?]
It was stupid capitulation...and stupid remarks with out thinking.
[The latter part is SOP in KOmmieland and DUmmieland.]
I can't wait For Osama to co-sponsor the next bill limiting the scope of our involvement in Iraq, following the veto.
[Osama from his hideout might as well be co-sponsoring the next Democrat defeat bill.]
To borrow a theme from palm sunday: crucify him! crucify him! crucify him!
[Wrong day so you get an F in your Palm Sunday school class.]
Come on, Senator, PLEASE get your groove back! I really want to support your bid!
[I'm feeling a song theme here. "Barack Gets His Groove Back!"]
I thought it was a joke. April Fools, you know. I still can't believe it.
[Hmmm... It's too late now but Obama could have extricated himself by claiming it was an April Fools joke soon after pulling the rug from under the Democrats.]
His framing is outrageous. And totally buys into right-wing talking points.
["Framing" has become a big buzzword among the Left in recent years. I think it is sort of a Lackoff thing.]
Obama sounds a bit confused
[But...but I thought Obama is clean and ARTICULATE.]
Obama better learn effective negotiation skills when he deals with Putin, North Korea, Iran, and Republicans if he is elected President.
[A little LATE in the game for that, don't you think?]
Obama just promised him the bill without the benchmarks -- exactly what Bush has been demanding.
[Benchmarks = Surrender Date.]
Why in the hell would he say this? I don't see an upside here at all.
[Since Obama pulled the rug from under the Democrats, I definitely see the upside here.]
And I had just decided to back Obama. Good thing my credibility is not important - I may be doing a flip-flop!
[Is that you, John Kerry?]
Reid and Pelosi must be fuming. They need to "thank him" when he gets back to work. What a give away to Bush
[Even Pelosi's frozen smile was wiped off her face by Obama's rug pulling statement.]
If Obama makes it to the White House..we're going to have to stay on his ass 24 hours a day to make sure he behaves.
[Sayeth the KOmmie Puppetmaster wannabee.]
A real leader frames the debate according to the goals he or she wants to accomplish. Obama sounds like he doesn't have any goals related to Iraq, so he's adopting Bush's framing instead. Yikes.
[There you go again with the Framing shtick. Yikes.]
I was very interested in the Obama "hope" ticket, but this today is just a crushing blow to that notion. But no matter - we have a wealth of riches in our candidates. For me it's down to Edwards. He gets US and he gets the country. SO DOES ELIZABETH. He has more gravitas this time around than he EVER showed in '04. Whereas he may have been positioning for a loyal lapdog VP in '04, this time it appears he's in it to WIN. And he's speaking his mind and telling the truth. TRUTH. It's down to Edwards. Now bring on Iowa and let's get into the real fight.
[The Democrats are in worse shape than I thought if their standard bearer is to be an ambulance chasing Silky Pony.]
Obama just got taken off my x-mas list.
[Will he also be taken off your Christmas list?]
Pelosi and Reid would like to wring his skinny little neck today. I like the guy a lot, but damn this was a big error.
[To get to that skinny little neck, you have to get past those powerfully large ears.]
Obama just lost to a poker game to a guy who had a joker, a poker instruction card, and an old maid.
[A Chris Moneymaker he ain't.]
No, it's not going to be Hillary or Obama, end of story.
[Yes, it's going to be she who has the most $$$, end of story.]
The AP reporter's conjecture has just been edited out of the story. It's a frame job.
[KOmmies just LOVE to frame.]
It seems to me that he just throw in the towel at half-time while his team was winning. What a freakin loser!
[Towelie is one of my favorite South Park characters.]
Why won't Kos admit he's for Edwards?
[We need to check with his pal, Unknown Jerome, if there is a Blogola link to Edwards.]
Clear What Obama is Really Running for Now. A place on Hillary's ticket. Step aside, Tom Vilsack!
[Step aside, Tom Vlasic!]
But we must admit, Obama is forecasting exactly what Pelosi and Reid will do - just a few weeks earlier than he was supposed to.
[Worse forecasting than the Global Warming weathermen. Dingy Harry has now suicidally decided to DEFUND the troops.]
So it looks like Obama doesn't walk on water. He is a politician, no different from Hillary, Edwards Biden. How shocking. Obama supporting have been behaving like cultists. Maybe this will help them see things with more clarity.
[It's called deprogramming.]
I liked Obama the most of all the candidates before this. Now, I don't know what I'll do.
[Perhaps Mark Warner's chocolate fountain will be available again.]
Talk about a rookie mistake. He just undercut every Democrat in the United States.
[Thanx again, Barry!]
Guess Obama isn't hiring Markos for a consultant. And this is what we can expect as a result.
[Time for Obama to throw a KOmmie KOs Stratosphere party in Las Vegas. Don't forget the chocolate fountain!]
This post is ridiculous and ends any regard I may have had for opinions expressed by Kos. Not that it matters,I won't come back to this site. And I hope anyone recognizing the motivation here does the same.
[Don't be so harsh on KOmmie KOs. His site provides the DUmmies FUnnies with HUGE amounts of comedic material. I WILL come back to this site!]
Have you ever been at the beach and seen a really hot looking chick? Most likely all you will end up doing is just stare at her, drooling like an idiot. If you try to talk to her you will probably embarrass yourself with your clumsy pickup lines. Well, GOOD NEWS! I now have a product guaranteed to make it EASY to pick up lots of hot looking women at the beach. It is a product I have been using myself and fully endorse: the amazing HELICOPTER KITE. This helicopter kite flies like a helicopter. You can make it go hundreds of feet into the air or hover it just a couple of feet off the ground. The propellor rotation is done entirely by windpower. So how does this help you pick up chicks? Simple. Just hover this helicopter kite a few feet off the ground near the hot beach chick of your choice. In most cases they will be overcome with curiosity and come over to YOU to ask about it. I've run a little experiment on this and it works on about 75% of the women (catch and release in my case since I'm married). My advice is to keep the conversation initially focused on the helicopter kite until you can later make a sneaky segue into asking her out for dinner. From that point on, you're on your own. Please check out the VIDEO of the INCREDIBLE helicopter kite. Not only was the helicopter kite aerodynamically designed but it is also MADE IN THE USA! So feel good about purchasing an AMERICAN MADE toy which makes the perfect method for vastly enhancing your social life. The helicopter kites have a LIFETIME warranty so all defective or broken parts will be replaced. Your purchase of the helicopter kite will not only provide you with lots of hot dates but it will also help keep the DUmmie FUnnies going. So take a look at the VIDEO and be AMAZED! Remember, those hot beach chicks are waiting!
p.s. Check out what one of our happy customers had to SAY about the amazing helicopter kite.
