Don’t just do something, stand there!

May 10, 2011 1 comment

With a few exceptions (ahem…Hermancain…ahem), that seems to be the battle cry for the current selection of candidates for the GOP nomination for President in 2012.   Yeah, Pawlenty will run.  Yeah, Romney will run.  But they themselves really don’t seem to care about beating President Gutsy Call, let alone stoking any enthusiasm from grassroots conservatives. 

The media seems to love John McCain Mitch Daniels as the “sensible” GOP candidate , but it’s always worth mentioning that the MSM never has the country’s best interest at heart–they just want Democrats elected.  Preferably those of the liberal sort.

From a conservative viewpoint, I can’t help but notice that it surely is a sorry bunch of candidates to pick from.  When Newt Gingrich—Newt Gingrich!—is throwing his hat into the ring, you just know that agita is coming. 

But the clock is, indeed, ticking, and it’s time to see who’s serious and, more importantly, who has the cajones to get in Obama’s face and point out his abysmal record and reclaim the White House for the Republican party.  Get in his face.  It’s the Obama way.

Stacy McCain has about as real a rallying cry as ther is right now, and he’s absolutely right:

I’ve heard all the objections, and I don’t care. I’m tired of people hesitating, waiting around for Chris Christie or Mitch Daniels or whoever their GOP “Dream Date” may be. Team Obama is talking about raising $1 billion — that’s $1,000,000,000.oo — to re-elect this disastrous president. We can’t sit around waiting and hoping. It’s time to get busy.

Amen.   To that I would add that America hasn’t seen anything yet.  You think a first-term Obama is bad?  Imagine if he wins a second term, and doesn’t have to run for election anymore.  All bets would be off.  At that point, it would be balls to the wall liberalism, statism on steroids.

And when I talk about being a serious candidate, I mean knowing your stuff and bringing it.   Mitch Daniels appears to be basking in the media adoration surrounding him right now, but telling the rank and file Republican voter that you’re not ready to debate Obama on foreign policy, of all topics, is not exactly awe-inspiring.

Barack Obama is beatable in 2012.  Very beatable.  But the Republicans can’t beat him unless they want to.  Plain and simple.

Happy Labor Day Weekend

Only one friggin post Light blogging this week, as I’ve taken advantage of the beautiful weather and have been down to the Jersey shore. Came back up to “North” Jersey last night to take care of some things, and will be headed back down tonight. So most likely, I won’t be able to post anything until after the weekend.

I was perusing the various blogs for this week, especially regarding Joe Miller’s huge win over RINO Lisa Murkowski in the GOP Senate primary up in Alaska.

Stacy McCain has been doing a yeoman’s job covering the story, and he links to this standard boilerplate AP story about how radical, racist extremists have (ahem) hijacked the GOP.

Again, standard fare for the AP. McCain hits the nail right on the head:

Remember when underdog Barack Obama beat Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primaries? That was the Triumph of Hope. When an underdog wins a Republican primary, however, that’s Hijacked by Extremists.

Bingo!

On that note, enjoy the weekend all!

NAACP applauds racism (UPDATE) USDA official resigns for not being racist

July 19, 2010 1 comment

This entire episode with the NAACP calling out Tea Party nation for alleged racism is so pathetic and depressing, and I’ve tried to avoid it.  I’m always hesitant about these so-called advocacy groups like the NAACP and the like; they’re so politically entrenched in the Democratic party that you have to be completely blind to their obviously biased inclinations.  The NAACP doesn’t advocate the advancement of colored people–they advocate the advancement of left-leaning Democratic colored people.  Conservative colored people need not apply.

In its usual spineless way, the mainstream media picked up on the meme, booking their NAACP guests that pushed the whole storyline–all of it was conjecture and subjective.

Earlier today, Breitbart puts up this great post outlining the entire debacle.  READ THIS NOW.

Breitbart states the obvious:

The NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus do not want racial harmony. They want political victory, and the race card is their Stradivarius.

Three months later, the NAACP decided to “double-down” on the fabricated “”Tea Party/racism” narrative and has the gall to include the disproved Capitol Hill “N Word” non-incident as their formal condemnation of the Tea Party. Simply by snapping its figures, the mainstream media again parroted lies. The Tea Party was guilty until it proved itself innocent. A most un-American and, dare I say, culturally Marxist construct.

In fact, it’s worse. The media that provided the left a platform to accuse the Tea Party, all the while refusing to air any exculpatory evidence. Again, the mainstream media inserts itself as the number one weapon in the progressive weapons stash. Political correctness, as the Duke Lacrosse case exemplified, trumps all in PC America and her afflicted media.

[…]

The NAACP which has transformed from a civil rights group to a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party and social-justice politics, supports a new America that relies less on individualism, entrepreneurialism and American grit, but instead giddily embraces, the un-American notion of unaccountability and government dependence.

He then goes on to post video proof of the disturbing and ugly racism inherent in the race-baiting world of progressive liberalism.

Meet Shirley Sherrod:

We are in possession of a video from in which Shirley Sherrod, USDA Georgia Director of Rural Development, speaks at the NAACP Freedom Fund dinner in Georgia. In her meandering speech to what appears to be an all-black audience, this federally appointed executive bureaucrat lays out in stark detail, that her federal duties are managed through the prism of race and class distinctions.

[…]Sherrod describes how she racially discriminates against a white farmer. She describes how she is torn over how much she will choose to help him. And, she admits that she doesn’t do everything she can for him, because he is white. Eventually, her basic humanity informs that this white man is poor and needs help. But she decides that he should get help from “one of his own kind”. She refers him to a white lawyer.

The second video is just as disturbing as Sherrod more or less encourages black people to get government jobs because they won’t get laid off.  Racist stereotypes anyone?

Here are the videos:

My post is somewhat sloppy, because I’m writing after having read Breitbart’s piece twice, and words can’t explain how frustrating and insane all of this is.  For decades, the Democrats have been the party of race-baiting, playing the race card for political purposes and to spew their own brand of hate.  Add in a complicit media, and we’re on a course for disaster.

Breitbart rightfully lauds the Tea Party, and its importance in counterbalancing and fighting the hate.

UPDATE.  The racist has resigned.

Dylan Ratigan is really ticked off!

June 28, 2010 Leave a comment

The former Bloomberg reporter/CNBC host is mad as hell by golly, and he’s not taking it anymore:

On most cable newscasts, the people who are writing new financial regulations are called congressmen. But on “The Dylan Ratigan Show” on MSNBC, some are called “banksters.”

That term, a twist on gangsters, tells viewers a lot about Mr. Ratigan, a financial news apostate who has transformed himself into an outspoken opponent of too-big-to-fail banks and the politicians whom he calls their servants. In the recent fight over financial reform, he lent a megaphone to people who wanted an end to “too big to fail,” and he called on viewers to lobby the Senators in his imaginary Bankster Party.

All this from a man who, until recently, hosted a stock-picking show on CNBC, the cable personification of Wall Street. Now Mr. Ratigan, who labels himself a taxpayer advocate, rails against the “vampire” banks who “have assumed control of our government.”

[…]

Mr. Ratigan underwent a “Lou Dobbs-like transformation,” from sober-minded journalist to all-out advocate, said Andrew Leckey, the president of the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism at Arizona State University.

In a nod to his old network, Mr. Ratigan said that CNBC “does more good than bad,” because it “still shines the light on the debate about ideas in the financial markets.” But MSNBC seems to be a better platform than CNBC for a political crusade against corruption, said Mr. Ratigan, 38, whose one-year anniversary at MSNBC will come on Tuesday.

Good grief.  Doesn’t this all smell of crass opportunism?  A lame attempt by MSNBC to get themselves a shrill, pseudo-populist for their network?

If there’s any question about the reasons behind the downfall of the MSM, look no further than Dylan Ratigan–man of the people!

Such bull.
