It’s been said that people should, “Give President Obama a chance.”

Ok, but let’s not ignore the cost of waiting.

“In short, if we do not act boldly and swiftly, a bad situation could become dramatically worse.”
-President Barack Obama 1/26/09

If that’s true about passing a stimulus bill, it’s certainly true in foreign policy and matters of life and death.

Sincerest apologies and condolences…

Lance Cpl. Julian T. Brennan, 25, of Brooklyn, N.Y., died Jan. 24 while supporting combat operations in Farah province, Afghanistan. He was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.

Imagine that, terrorists were killed without their due process rights that Obama and the leftist have been screaming about the last few years. After all this is the reason the “Chosen one” wants to close down GITMO, right?

When the left is doing it, it is all peachy and sanctified. Dontcha know?

I got a pair of old shoes I`d love to throw at Obama – he desrves it, the murderer

he is so over his head and all of this is just making him look more inept. way to go in electing this dipstick. he is a babykiller who hates america.

Thanks to Lucianne I’ve found this interesting Blog . . . I will be back and thanks to FA also.

52% sure did open up a Crock O’Bama, no? And now the rest of us get to watch the mayhem. Sort of like “The Truman Show”, without the laughs.

cest moi: 52% sure did open up a Crock O’Bama, no? And now the rest of us get to watch the mayhem. Sort of like “The Truman Show”, without the laughs.

Oh, and Bush getting 47.9% and 50.7% with tight electoral college victories was such a resounding victory? Obama out preformed McCain by nearly 10 million votes, and had a near electoral college landslide of 365/173. The public rejected Republican ideals and the repudiated the Republican Party in this last election.



Thank you, Flopping Aces, for your great website. Your information is always right on! And, thank you for the wonderful pictures of the outgoing administration as they were gracefully leaving office. They were awesome!


The public rejected McCain because he is not liked. He has no core issues and and goes against his party to often why not be a Democrat?

Obama got free publicity from main stream media (MSM) plus him “buying” the presidency.

The only Republican ideals that were rejected were McCain’s. He’s not a conservative and doesn’t disagree with Obama on many issues except social issues. There wasn’t much difference. A Marxist and and Liberal.

many Republicans stayed home and didn’t vote, hence why McCain has 5 million less votes then Bush did on 05′.

b1jetmech, Oh, And George Bush & Company and the $5 Trillion they added to the deficit and the wars and Katrina had nothing to do with the Republican brand going down the drain? Give me a break. Republicans stopped being conservative a long time ago. McCain at least has railed against the deficit spending and pork. Since he is not conservative enough, the Republican party will not have the fast growing Latin vote and will forever be out in the wilderness.

I do apologize for the perceived racist comment. After 8 years of reading and hearing of George W Bush being called a Hitler, an imbecile, a war criminal, an idiot, etc. – I never realized that my innocently made comment would be interpreted as racist.
But, hey – it’s a new day, no? I guess I’ll have to put the “delicate flower guard” on my keyboard.
Again – a million apologies for upsetting the censor.

Yes you can lump all that in with why McCain lost. I agree Bush and Republicans over spent but the Democrats are about to break their record on top of socializing the country.

I don’t believe McCain railed against spending and pork. If he did then he would have voted against the 700 billion bail out that had another 150 billion tacked on to it to bribe Republicans to go along with it. NO! McCain like a lemming with no ideology except for what the media thinks of him, voted for it.

McCain didn’t us much to support him.

McCain/Feingold- limits on free speech.

McCain/Kennedy- give amnesty to illegal aliens.

McCain/Leiberman- Cap and trade- more burdensome regulation on our economy.

Wanted to close GITMO

Believes in Man made global warming.

And so on…

I for one will not support any amnesty for illegals. they are law breakers and lower our standard of living. Once they get the right to vote they will vote democrat because they as a culture thrive on hand outs. I know because I lived on the Mexican/Az. border for a number of years. if they want citizenship then do it the legal way just like all the others do, not for political demographics.

That is not how we grow the party, we do it by ideals not in the way of Rome and compromise our very national resolve and try to be all things to all people.

Reagan did no such thing and got re-elected in with 49 out of 50 states.

b1jetmech: I agree Bush and Republicans over spent but the Democrats are about to break their record on top of socializing the country.

No doubt spending is going to continue to spiral out of control, but keep in mind this “socialization” of our a large segment of our insurance and banking industry has virtually already taken place.

I don’t believe McCain railed against spending and pork.

Well, when McCain was against the Bush tax cuts, he based it upon the growth of the deficit. He also stopped the leasing of Boeing Aircraft for airfuel tankers, saving 6 Billion.

We need a balance budget amendment.

‘153 killed… media silent’.

Well, yeah. Not everyone shares your obsession with the petty murders committed by Pakistani hill tribes. To put things in perspective, I estimate that in the same week that 153 (or is it 154?) were killed by Islamist thuggery (or in related conflict), the world also had

>100,000 deaths from cancer
>100,000 deaths from heart disease
~80,000 deaths from respiratory infections (mostly tuberculosis)
~50,000 deaths from AIDS
~40,000 deaths from diarrhea (mostly kids)
~30,000 deaths from malaria
~30,000 deaths from traffic accidents
~12,000 deaths from measles
~4,000 deaths from tetanus

(not a complete list, just a grab bag). If anything the ongoing conflict with the Islamists still gets more press than it should, not less.

Since when to the one above is Murders Petty ! I guess some have no morals !Must be an obot ! well here think about this below !

WAIT til Obama and his people make this look like
Small numbers and want some one to stop them when it is to late and your turn to die is next !

100,000 deaths from cancer
>100,000 deaths from heart disease
~80,000 deaths from respiratory infections (mostly tuberculosis)
~50,000 deaths from AIDS

~30,000 deaths from traffic accidents
~12,000 deaths from measles
~4,000 deaths from tetanus

The Games Have Begun!

It appears to me that soooo many folks are still duped into the whole us vs them, red vs blue, republican vs democrat game. Not sure if you people will ever wake up but let me see if this helps. The Democrats and Republicans are just two different wings of the same bird of prey. Guess who their prey is? You, your spouse, your kids, your parents, your grandparents, your friends.

The people in power shy a small handful (Ron Paul comes to mind here) are just completely corrupt. What we have now are big spending, NeoConservative war mongers vs big spending, NeoSocialist war mongers. Obama is going to bring change though! Give me a break. His first week in office and we are still busy bombing Pakistan which isn’t even part of the idiotic *War on Terror*….yet. He’s doing a surge of 30,000 troops into Afghanistan. He’s stated he wants to expand military spending for pete’s sake. Just a continuation of interventionist foreign policy.

Until the US Empire finally collapses in on itself and the dollar is totally destroyed in value I don’t think there is any hope things will change. That time is right at our doorstep now so you folks might possibly want to consider no longer listening to the people that got us into this mess.

A foreign policy of intervention has wrought us bankruptcy, isolation and ever growing numbers of terrorists that seek to do us harm. Because of the PetroDollar being enforced through the propping up of brutal dictators in the MidEast by the US we now have to suffer the consequences of those people who have grown tired of it. We put Saddam in power to fight the Iranians because they overthrew a brutal dictator (the Shah) we put in power there back in the 50’s. We knew what kind of guy he was then. We gave him WMD’s to use on the Iranians and he wound up using them on the Kurds in his own country. He was greenlit by April Gilespie, the US ambassador to Iraq back in the early 90’s when he wanted to invade Kuwait for stealing Iraqi oil via side drilling. When he did we used that as an excuse for the first Gulf War because Saddam had nationalized the oil companies in Iraq. Fast forward to 2000, a MILLION Iraqi civilians dead through starvation, disease etc brought about by US sanctions. Saddam was finally fed up and started selling his petrol in Euros instead of dollars. It only took 3 years and we invaded him. Only took 4 months after we toppled him to quietly put the sales of Iraqi petrol back as Dollar sales ONLY. Iran is doing the same thing now and even have their own stock exchange not using the Dollar. Take a guess as to the real reason we want to bomb Iran.

Just try to imagine if others treated us the same way we treat them. Imagine if Russia or China toppled our government and put in a puppet regime because they promised to sell OUR oil in THEIR currency. Not only that, but they had battleships parked off our coasts in the Gulf of Mexico and openly stated that they will protect THEIR interests in the US. There would be all kinds of pissed off people here and quite possibly US citizens going to china or russia to blow some stuff up.

It is because nations MUST purchase their petroleum for gasoline in DOLLARS that the wars in the middle east are not going to subside nor are we going to *get off middle eastern oil*. If Argentina wants petrol from Venezuela or Iran or Iraq….they can’t use their money. They MUST use DOLLARS. This forces the nations of the world to keep large quantities of US Dollars in their banks as reserves. Hence the reason the Dollar is the World Reserve Currency. This allows the US to print (counterfeit really) large sums of money and export OUR inflation to the rest of the planet while we continue to build more and more weapons, increase our technological capacity, pay for multiple millions of illegal immigrants to go to our schools, get welfare/medicare/social security etc.

Luckily this is all going to come to an abrupt end. All empires throughout history have ended and have typically ended very badly. The US is no different nor immune to economic law. The current economic crisis is going to topple the dollar as the world reserve currency and quite possibly even the destruction of the dollar as a currency. How will the US pay for all its bases around the globe? How will it pay for its war on drugs or war on poverty. How will it pay for the 80+ TRILLION dollar Ponzi Scheme that is Social Security??? It won’t.

The troops are coming home no matter how many of you neoconservate/socialist imbeciles want to live in your fairytale laa laa land. The standard of living for most American’s is going to radically drop as well. Thanks big government! We knew we could count on you to do as you have always done….completely destroy whatever it is you touch and then go oh oh oh….we need more power so we can fix the problem!!!

If there is one thing to take away from my diatribe it is this:
Ron Paul was right on both foreign and domestic policy and nobody listened. Perhaps listen to the guy that has voted more than 300+ times all by himself in an effort to honor his oath to office and OBEY THE CONSTITUTION.

who opened the Paul’bot floodgates???

neocon: Ever read the Constitution or do you just prefer to type meaningless slogans?

As for bbartlog:

>100,000 deaths from cancer
>100,000 deaths from heart disease
~80,000 deaths from respiratory infections (mostly tuberculosis)
~50,000 deaths from AIDS
~40,000 deaths from diarrhea (mostly kids)
~30,000 deaths from malaria
~30,000 deaths from traffic accidents
~12,000 deaths from measles
~4,000 deaths from tetanus

Thanks for reminding us that hundreds of thousands of people around the world have died since Obama was elected. Seems the Messiah’s powers to bring Hope and Change aren’t what they were cracked up to be.

I wonder if that woman who thought Obama’s election meant she didn’t have to worry about paying the mortgage or putting gas in the car is homeless and riding the bus?

I agree that Republicans and Democrats are both corrupted but my experiences with elected officials in Washington over a 16 year period convince me that the Democrats are more currupt than the Republicans. Also Democrats are much quicker at forgiving the “mistakes” of their elected officials who have been caught while Republicans shy away from theirs crying out “Unclean, unclean.”

I don’t see a third party being a possible winner; if I did I would be there today.

I would like to see a tax revolt over this “stimulus” (Democrat payback time), package . . . and am concerned that there may be other kinds of revolt in the future when Obama’s welfare cadre find out they are not getting 40 acres and a mule . . . just the usual funds needed to keep them on the plantation.

Let’s hope the country does well and the newly elected Marxist president falls flat on his face.

Would someone please tell me what we are to do when we are no longer over there and they (islamic jihadist) are over here? What is the appropriate response when suicide bombers kill thousands during new year celebrations in times square? so, the repubs and dems are equally to blame for getting us into this situation. We still must deal with the situation at hand. The situation? THE ISLAMIC JIHADIST PREACH DAILY FOR OUR FORCED CONVERSION, AND IF THAT FAILS, OUR (WESTERN CIVILISATION”S) DEATH.

Please tell me how You would protect me and mine from them and theirs.
