It was fate.
That it happened was not at all surprising but, WHEN it happened…THAT was astounding.
With near pinpoint accuracy, just as Debbie What’s-Her-Name-Schultz brought down the gavel to open the Liberal/Socialist Convention and Entitlement Fest…
The Debt Clock, the one featured SO prominently at the Republican Convention but, oddly nowhere to be seen at THIS week’s convention…
Clicked over $16 TRILLION DOLLARS.
Without question, both parties have had a hand in that debt.
Without question, Obama ripped George W. Bush for adding just over $4 trillion to it during his 8 years in office.
Without question, in less than HALF that amount of time, Obama had added $5,3 TRILLION to it.
Without question, Obama said he would cut it in half by the end of his first term.
Yesterday, when asked how he would grade himself on the economy, Obama answered, “Incomplete.”
When the Chairman of the Liberal convention, Antonio Villaraigosa, the Mayor of Los Angeles, was asked what grade HE would give Obama on the economy, HE answered, “I’d give him an A for effort.”
Incomplete and an A for effort.
It makes one wonder what the liberal/socialists would say if it were Romney giving himself an “incomplete” and Sununu giving him an “A for effort?”
The outrage would palpable.
Between Obama’s own grade and the one provided by Villaraigosa, Obama is the Milli Vanilli of Commanders in Chief.
Obama is begging the electorate to reelect him, NOT based on what he’s DONE but on what he will DO if given another 4 years.
Milli Vanilli won a Grammy for being frauds.
Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize based on what they THOGHT he WOULD do…NOT based on anything he HAD done.
You tell ME what the difference might be.
We also discovered that, in the liberal/socialist platform, 3 very important words have been removed.
In 2008, the platform read: “Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel. The parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations. It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.”
That has now been removed!
In 2008 the platform read: “The United States and its Quartet partners should continue to isolate Hamas until it renounces terrorism, recognizes Israel’s right to exist, and abides by past agreements.”
That TOO has been removed!!!
Senator Dick Durbin tried to downplay it.
Well, that’s an understatement.
He was downright belligerent regarding the omissions when interviewed. Durbin tried to make believe that neither omission meant a thing and even brought up Harry S. Truman as the first leader to recognize Israel. Durbin was visibly angered that the omissions were even pointed out.
Obama, no doubt, will, during his Thursday night speech make mention of his “steadfast” defense of Israel.
It’s just another Milli Vanilli song.
IN Israel, the omission will be considered a slap directly across the face. Israelis are good at turning the other cheek but…
Obama told Netanyahu to go back to Israel’s pre-1967 borders.
Obama has supported the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama supports a Palestinian state.
Obama had his U.N. Ambassador rake Israel over the proverbial coals for building housing units on their own land.
Obama stand by doing NOTHING regarding Iran outside of levying useless and completely ignored sanctions and did NOTHING when the PEOPLE of Iran begged for help a year ago.
Obama is doing nothing regarding Syria.
Obama made snide comments to Sarkozy on an open mic regarding Netanyahu.
As President, Obama has never visited Israel.
The fact is…ISRAEL HAS RUN OUT OF CHEEKS TO TURN!!!
In that part of the world, as it should be here, words mean something and diplomacy hinges on those words.
As Mitt Romney so vividly pointed out while IN Israel a few weeks ago, Jerusalem is the rightful Capitol of Israel.
By making NO mention of that fact in their platform…Liberals have let it be known, in that part of the world, that Obama does NOT stand with them and guess what?
That statement is NOT lost on Israelis OR on their enemies!!!
While Durbin pretends it’s meaningless…Assad, Ahmadinejad, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, the Palestinian Authority and Hezbollah are now even MORE emboldened that ever before.
And NO mention of GOD???
In 2008 the platform read: “We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”
That has been removed and replaced with: “We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.”
Well, that makes the American Atheists very happy.
Yes, religion and faith ARE mentioned but, as it always is with socialism…
One step at a time until, in this case, religion itself, and specifically Christian and Jewish faiths, no longer exist.
As BOTH words, Jerusalem and God HAVE been included in the liberal/socialist platforms of the past, this is clearly not an oversight. Those words were removed on purpose and FOR a purpose.
For any liberal/socialist who starts calling you names because you refer to their party AS socialists, play for them THIS clip which was presented at the Liberal/Socialist Convention yesterday:
And then inform them that WE do NOT belong to the GOVERNMENT…
The GOVERNMENT belongs to US…
Unless of course…You believe in socialism.
In other news from the opening day of the Liberal/Socialist Convention…
While Obama has been campaigning spewing forth such rubbish as Romney’s economic plans are from the last century…
Obama has Clinton, from the last century, shilling for him…Carter, from the last century, shilling for him and…yesterday, on video…the now dead Teddy Kennedy, in the middle of a Chappaquiddick-free video tribute, shilling for him by attacking Mitt Romney!!!
Last night, the bash Romney event kicked off.
One after another, speakers said if you’re a woman you can’t trust Romney, they were visibly upset over Romney’s money…Mostly over the fact that he has kept some of it where our Government can’t waste it.
Liberals countered Senator Marco Rubio who showed his passion for personal responsibility, his family and how his father worked behind a bar in the back of a room so he could someday stand at a podium in front of the room…With Mayor Julian Castro…Who showed HIS passion for government, his father and how his mother pushed a mop so he could hold the microphone.
Really? The “rising star” of the liberal/socialist party had to steal from Rubio’s speech to get applause?
Mostly, all the speeches last night were about…Government. Government will take care of everything and government will take care of you.
There was not a single mention of the private sector and in sharp contrast to last week’s convention, nobody built their own business.
Each speaker, it seemed, grew up more poor than the speaker before them but, because of various government programs, they rose above it.
And then, there was Michelle Obama.
She began her speech talking about her travels (vacations) as First Lady and said, “I’m reminded of how blessed we are to live in the greatest country on earth.”
On February 18th, 2008 she said THIS: “For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.”
Last night Michelle Obama said, “Being President doesn’t CHANGE who you are…It REVEALS who you are.”
So…Once a socialist ALWAYS a socialist huh?
Obamacare was also a key talking point throughout the night and Michelle weighed in on that too.
“Barack didn’t take on healthcare because it was the easy thing to do, he did it because it was the RIGHT thing to do.”
Apparently a 2000 page bill that nobody read and several had to be bribed into voting for that institutes the largest tax increase in American history containing 21 new taxes and steals $716 BILLION from Medicare wa enough of the right thing to do to garner a standing ovation…from socialists.
Then…THIS bombshell: “Barack doesn’t CARE whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat…”
Seriously??? He doesn’t care…it doesn’t matter to him???
Michelle Obama spent the bulk of her speech describing the most ideologically driven, arrogant, hard-core liberal, pandering, race baiting, class warfare promoting president in history as a SAINT.
He cares. Cares so much. About these people and those people and this voting bloc and that. He does everything he does because he cares. He’s a SAINT!!!
In fact, He’s the Patron Saint of Dumpster Diving having once, as the champion of the destitution lotto, dived a coffee table at a time when his car was rusted out and his shoes were a half size too small.
Near the end of her speech, Mobama’s voice was quivering with what seemed either like fake emotion or genuine desperation.
Last night was most clearly the personification of the animated Julia as government was in the spotlight taking care of you from cradle to grave but lacked completely any mention of who exactly is paying for that nanny state.
The word “Forward” was used by every speaker but the only thing marching forward was the debt clock.
