The Voice of Experience

Empty Suit


Can we all finally join together, regardless of our political views, and agree that King Hussein Obama the First is a dumb ass?  Check out his later blunder when he tried to use the Spanish language to welcome a group to the White House to celebrate the Mexican holiday, Cinco de Mayo.  http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gBSZDYPSPmV5uKYPGLMq21s9vv4QD97VNU100  Instead of saying the three little words, Cinco de Mayo, which means the Fifth of May, this buffoon said Cinco de Cuatro, which means "five of four."  I guess this July 3rd the King will welcome a group of illegal immigrants to the White House to celebrate American's Independence Day, otherwise known as Four of Three.


Of course every American learns in grade school that Cinco de Mayo is a holiday in Mexico.  And while most people probably forget over time that Cinico de Mayo commemorates the defeat of the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, pretty much everybody with an IQ over ten remembers the name of the holiday.  I can only guess that Obama must have been stoned the day his class learned about Cinco de Mayo so maybe we shouldn't be so rough on him.


Now for all you liberals out there who love to criticize all things Bush, you might be interested to know that our former president spoke Spanish.  But in the interest of fairness, we should note that the useful idiots in the media and language experts pointed out that Bush's grasp of the Spanish language was far from perfect.  Consider this article from the blog of Edward Trimnell, author of Why You Need a Foreign Language & How to Learn One.  http://www.edwardtrimnell.com/bush_spanish.htm  You don't have to read very much to find Trimnell's criticism of Bush's accent and his general comment that Bush should speak the language better because he spent years in Texas, a state with numerous Spanish speaking residents.  And our old friends at the New York Times got into the act by describing Bush's Spanish as "halting to converstational."http://www.nytimes.com/2002/06/03/us/white-house-letter-bilingual-so-to-speak-but-halting.html  I'm sure their article criticizing Obama's Spanish flub is in today's edition.


It was an axiom of the useful idiots in the media that President Bush was stupid so it shouldn't surprise anybody that Obama will take no criticism for his inability to say even three words of Spanish without screwing up while Bush got ripped even though he knew enough Spanish to actually use the language in conversation.  And certainly the savants at the New York Times aren't going to point out that the King, who was born in a foreign country and lived for several years in another, should know another language.  Even Obama admits that it's embarrassing that he doesn't speak another language.  http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2008/07/11/politics/fromtheroad/entry4254480.shtml


As is typical of an empty suit like King Hussein Obama, he points out that while he only knows about 15 words of Spanish; his accent "has always been good."  So in other words, as long as somebody else provides him the proper words, he can deliver them so well that the average listener would think he was native Spanish speaker.  Is there anybody left out there who thinks Obama even has a clue what the words he reads off the Tele-Prompt-Ter mean?

The Voice of Experience

He's Your Problem Now


When I initially heard about Arlen Specter's defection to the Republic Party, I didn't even think it was worth writing one word about.  This guy's been a loser for so long my basic reaction was who cares.  But since there's been so much commentary on this traitor (even the Righteous Lib is crowing about it) and since he's nominally one of my representatives in Congress, I've decided to share my thoughts.


Specter's been a senator from Pennsylvania since 1981 and for most of that time he's been a RINO, Republican in Name Only.  Maybe in a state such as this one that contains an almost equal number of Republicans and Democrats, being a RINO was strength but it was a tremendous liability when his support was required for advancing the conservative agenda.  And for years, conservatives such as me have voted for Specter in the general elections despite our dissatisfaction with him as he was the lesser of two evils. 


So finally in 2004 we had a legitimate alternative to Arlen to vote for in the Republican primary, Congressman Pat Toomey.  Unlike Arlen, Toomey was a solid conservative who we could depend on to represent us instead of a loose cannon who was only interested in his own prestige.  It's seems like a million years ago but in 2004 Republicans and conservatives were riding high and Arlen was in big trouble.  As the incumbent, Specter had access to a lot of resources, including the endorsements of President Bush and fellow Senator Rick Santorum, a true friend and rock solid conservative leader.  These two guys were taking a big chance backing a closet liberal like Specter but I guess they felt they had to since Arlen was the incumbent.  I've often felt that Santorum's backing of Specter was one of the factors in his own defeat two years later at the hands of Democrat Bob Casey.


Now you might think that after both his fellow Senator and the President himself had stuck their necks out to back him, Specter might have been grateful but he was the exact opposite.  Within hours of his victory in the 2004 general election, Arlen was mouthing off for the press, talking about how he was his own man.  As the future head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he wouldn't bend to the President and fellow Republicans about judicial appointments.  More specifically, Specter said that in reference to future Supreme Court nominees:


When you talk about judges who would change the right of a woman to choose, overturn Roe v. Wade, I think that is unlikely.  The President is well aware of what happened, when a number of his nominees were sent up, with the filibuster…And I would expect the President to be mindful of the considerations which I am mentioning.


So the Republicans decided to teach Arlen a lesson and threatened to deny him the chairmanship.  It was quite a treat to watch Arlen humble himself and beg to have this position.  Ultimately after about two weeks, Arlen promised he would not deny confirmation to pro-life justices and he was allowed to serve as chairman.  And to anyone who remembers this sad affair, it should be proof positive that Arlen will do anything, say anything, take any position, to gain and hold power.


As I said earlier, 2004 seems like a million years ago and now Republicans and conservative have stunk to the bottom of the political world.  Until Arlen's defection, the only possible weapon the Republicans had to stop the Obama juggernaut of liberal destruction was the threat of a filibuster..  So when Specter's support for a filibuster of King Hussein Obama's disastrous economic stimulus plan was crucial, what did he do?  He sold his vote for $6 billion in funding for medical research and stabbed us in the back.  While this vote made him the darling of the liberal media it did not sit well with Republican voters in this state.  Most polls showed Arlen being crushed in the 2010 Republican primary by the aforementioned Pat Toomey.  And just like he did in 2004; Arlen did whatever he had to to try and hold onto his power and switched parties since this was the only way he could possibly have a chance to run in the general election.


As you might expect, instead of telling the truth, the useful idiots in the liberal media have been spreading the big lie about Arlen's defection.  According to them, Specter switched parties because the Republican Party was too conservative.  According to the liberal liars, Specter didn't leave the Republican Party, the Republican Party left him.  Do I even have to provide one argument against this bold faced lie?  Were Reagan and his fellow Republicans in 1980 pro-choice?  Would they have supported a massive spending bill like Obama's stimulus plan?  And most importantly, Specter himself admitted that one of the reasons he switched was because he was going to lose the Republican primary.  None of this troubles the liberal liars in the media though.  They've even contradicted their own crap by claiming that one of Reagan's strengths was that there was a lot of room under the Reagan big tent for dissenting views, and hence room for Specter, after telling us for nearly thirty years how narrow-minded Reagan was.


Well now the Democrats have Specter and all I can say is good luck.  I hope they're not counting on him because Arlen's showed time and time again that he is loyal to no one but his own ambition.  In his brief tenure in the Democratic Party, Specter has already promised to vote against a pet project of theirs:  card check..  Arlen might change his mind on this one though.  Pennsylvania is one of the few states left that has a significant union influence and most of these union members vote Democratic.  I would guess that if Arlen's losing in the Democratic primary next year, he'll find a provision in Scots Law to back card check.

The Righteous Lib

Welcome to the Big Tent


When I first heard that Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter had left the Republican Party I was confused because I didn't know there was still a Republican Party to leave.  All I see these days is an ever-shrinking group of racist, flat-earthers that is completely out of touch with the average American.  These fools that cling to the name Republican have about as much relevance to today's politics as the village blacksmith does to our transportation system and Arlen was smart enough to know it.


I've always liked Specter even though for years he was in league with the bigots.  But on the big issues, like the Republican coup to take over the government by impeaching President Clinton, Arlen stood tall and voted the right way.  More recently, when most of the other Republicans were trying like mad to stop the plans of the greatest President we've ever had by opposing his economic stimulus plan, Specter placed the good of the country over partisan politics. 


Now of course the hate-mongers like that fat drug addict Rush Limbaugh are trying to put their own spin on Arlen's defection from their worthless cause.  As usual they're throwing a ton of crap at their target in the hopes that something will stick but their main argument is that Specter was going to lose the Republican primary to some guy you've never hear of, Pat Toomey, since if you're like me, you probably don't attend the Klan meetings in rural Pennsylvania.  For some reason the Republicans think this is a great argument but I think it's dumb.  To these fools it makes sense to stay in the Republican Party and lose and it's stupid to switch to the Democratic Party and win.  No wonder these guys have gotten their ass kicked two elections running.


I can relate to Arlen's decision because I once faced a similar situation and did the same exact thing..  I used to panhandle down on Bishop Street and I was cleaning up until one day this gimp with no legs started begging right across the street from me.  Pretty soon I was getting jack and this guy was cleaning up.  I thought about kicking his ass but what good would that have done?  It would have only made him more pathetic than he already was and he would taken even more of my money.  So just like Arlen, if you can't beat them, join them.  I worked out a deal with this guy.  I would roam the side streets and push people his way, begging them to hook up my "dear old 'anakala" who'd lost his legs in the war.  We were cleaning up until the dumb ass got a job but that's not the point.  I was never going to beat this guy so I teamed up with him instead and got what I could.


Even though Specter himself is a pretty good guy he's been helping the Republicans ruin the country for a long time so it would only be natural to think the Democrats might be a little wary of him.  But I'll tell you what a great guy my man Barack is.  He welcomed Arlen to the party with open arms and promised to campaign for him.  It takes a big man to forget the past, to forgive Arlen for all the damage he's done, and embrace him, but that's what my man Barack's all about.  There's a lot of room under Barack's tent and since he's always right you don't even have to think about what you believe in.  Barack's like the Greyhound of politics:  sit back and leave the thinking to Barack.  Sounds like a good deal to me as long as he keeps shoving that government money my way.  Keep those Republican checkbooks close, braddas.

The Best and the Brightest

A Heartbeat Away


King Hussein Obama the First has appointed so many worthless losers to high positions in his administration that we've decided to start a new feature here at Delta-Man called The Best and the Brightest.  The posts under this heading will expose and ridicule the misadventures of the King's henchmen, which in his short reign have been numerous and shocking.  From Comrade Robert Gibbs to Janet Napolitano, from the heretofore unidentified clowns who signed off on scaring the crap out of New York City by flying a 747 over the city and decided to give the Prime Minister of England a cheap collection of old movies from Best Buy, King Hussein Obama the First has provided a inexhaustible supply of idiots for us to make fun of and laugh at. And since this article is the initial posting under this heading, we might as well start right at the top with arguably the King's worst appointment, Vice President Joe Biden.


To chronicle all of Biden's gaffes would literally require me to quit my job and start writing full time so today we focus solely on his latest blunder, to wit:  his warning to Americans not to fly in light of the developing swine flu pandemic.  Now if you're like me, you probably thought Biden was just a hack lawyer from Delaware who finagled his way into a cushy job in the United States Senate.  Little did we know that Biden was also a distinguished member of the medical community, whose prominence and learning allow him to give out advice to the public at large.  We can only pray that Biden has enough sense to limit his medical career to shooting off his mouth about issues he really doesn't understand.  Imagine if this clown tried to perform open-heart surgery on someone.  Biden's so stupid that that poor soul would probably end up with a big asshole in the center of his chest.


Since Obama's henchmen screw up so often, they are used to covering up for mistakes by one of their own and the excuses and clarifications were flying out of the White House in no time.  http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/Story?id=7470281&page=1  Notice how the liars carefully twist and shade Biden's comments, mostly by subtle additions.  Press Secretary Comrade Gibbs added to Biden's blanket warning by saying that sick people should limit their travel.  This comment in and of itself is ridiculous since Biden was clearly warning healthy people not to expose themselves to illness not the reverse as Gibbs suggested.  Biden's spokeswoman, Elizabeth Alexander tacked on that Biden meant to say the people should avoid unnecessary travel to and from Mexico.  Of course in the comments Biden actually made he said the exact opposite when he said, "It's not that it's going to Mexico.  It's you in a confined aircraft."  Only liberals could come up with such unbelievable lies.  Surprising the only person who said anything of worth was Senator Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, who said, "I wish the vice president had checked with the Centers for Disease Control…before he made that statement."  Well, no duh but if Biden checked the facts everything before he shot off his big mouth he'd in essence be taking a vow of silence.


If Biden was only a hack loser in the Senate, his comments would have been laughed at and quickly forgotten but unfortunately he is the Vice President of the United States.  Due to the prestige of this nation and some of the prior occupants of that office, Biden's opinion now carries a certain weight and he can do a lot of damage.  Consider the following story about the potential effect of Biden's comment's on the struggling tourism industry in King Hussein Obama's native state of Hawaii. http://www.starbulletin.com/business/20090501_Biden_remark_another_blow_to_ailing_isle_visitor_industry.html  Even somebody as geographically challenged as King Obama, who thinks there are 57 states, should know that Hawaii's tourism industry is totally dependent on air travel.  By shooting of his mouth, Biden might cause a lot of harm in our most beautiful state.  We take this injury to Hawaii very seriously here at Delta-Man.  We have a number of friends in the islands and in fact, one of our contributors, the Righteous Lib, is a resident of that fair state.  It's unfortunate that because of this idiot some good people might lose their jobs.


No doubt Biden will be taken to the woodshed for this one and we may not see him for awhile but not even King Hussein Obama the First can silence the Vice President forever.  In a few weeks, Biden will emerge from the wilderness and roam the landscape once more.  I've often wondered about the mentality of someone such as Biden who screws up so often but never seems to learn.  You'd thing that after all his mistakes he'd shut his mouth but he doesn't.  He must be so delusional that he thinks what he's saying makes sense.  It's frightening to think this man is one heartbeat away from the Presidency of the United States.  Long live the King!
