Obama Ignores Disasters But Looks For The Money

Barack Obama’s regime denied federal assistance to the state of Texas which has been hammered with wildfires. A cynic would say that this is because Texas is a red state and Obama has no chance to win the large pool of electoral votes in the next election. Obama has however, gone to Texas to raise money for the political campaign and I bet there are plenty of liberals there who will give it to him. He will ignore their pleas for help but they will not ignore his.

To get to Texas Obama flew over the Mississippi River and the devastation that it has caused through middle America. The water is at record levels and places are flooded all over and various accounts report that Obama did not even look out the window to get a look at the damage. He was too busy thinking about what to say to Hispanics in Texas regarding amnesty so that he can get their cash now and their votes in 2012.

George Bush was hammered by the press and the liberals when he was photographed looking out the window of Air Force One at the damage from Hurricane Katrina. He was said to be uncaring and Kanye West said that he hated black people.

Obama is only concerned with power and how to hold onto it. His gig in the White House gets him the best tee times on cleared golf courses and free flights to all the hot vacation spots in the world. He needs to hold onto the power he has so he can continue to improve his golf game while working on transforming America into a Socialist country.

And don’t worry about missing anything. The government is working on a mandatory system that will allow it to text your cell phone in the event of an emergency. Of course, it will likely be a plan where those who pay for their cell phones continue to do so while the government uses their tax dollars to pay for phones for those who cannot afford them. It would not be fair, after all, for those poor folks not to get the same warnings as the people who pay for cell phones. Whatever happened to the Emergency Broadcast System?

At least the government will have a way to blast text messages to all of us from Dear Leader.

Wouldn’t want the masses to miss an Obama plea for campaign cash…

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

    He also yammered in Texas, at the border; “”We have gone above and beyond what was requested (concerning immigration and border control, and illegal immigration laws) by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement,” Obama said. “But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I gotta say I suspect there are still going to be some who are trying to move the goal posts on us one more time.”

    Obama boasted of increasing border patrol agents, nearing completion of a border fence, and screening more cargo.

    He did not address or start a program that would send people who hire illegal to jail. He did not address the problem of illegals in Jails or on welfare programs. He did not address the problems of “one country, one language, one culture.”

    He is a liar and his border efforts are like his war efforts; don’t disrupt what a bigger man before Obama started.
    Too bad he doesn’t do that with all things; if he would just stick to photo ops and keep his hands OFF the controls!

    Proof again that liberals are not fit to lead.

  2. Blake says:

    Eoj- I live in Texas, and I see firsthand how the illegals have increased crime, and cut wages for real Americans.
    Bari has NOT increased the amount of guns at the border, with the exception of the guns his ATF gave the Cartels, so they could then say, wideyed, “Gosh, there sure are a lot of American guns ending up in the hands of druggies.”
    Yeah- that program worked out real fine, didn’t it mr. rezident?
    Oh, and if He was blind and couldn’t see it, WE ALREADY HAVE A MOAT- it’s called the Rio Grande, and doesn’t do squat- crap! We forgot the alligators-

    “At least the government will have a way to blast text messages to all of us from Dear Leader.”

    Dear leader? You’re parroting your side’s talking point again? This is a system created by the GOP congress and signed into law by President Bush. Cue the right-wing freak out. Who needs facts? You can just say it’s part of Obama’s marxist socialist communist muslim power grab and all your righty readers will thank you for spreading the good word…

    • Big Dog says:

      Cue the Adam still can’t read for comprehension music. All those years of college and still can’t comprehend.

      Show me anywhere in this post where I said that the Democrats or Obama did this. The exact quote is in your comment but let me help you:


      Now, we know Obama is the current occupant of the WH and he is the Dear Leader so it is not unreasonable, given the way he has abused social media and crossed the line between official business/campaign business, that he would use such a system to send out messages that no one wants to get. I believe that we should be able to opt out, if that is not part of it then it should be.

      I also think that Limbaugh (cited at your Soros link) did not blame it on the Democrats or Obama. He merely stated that the government would be able to blast messages and asked why stop at emergencies.

      So do yourself a favor and go back to college.

      And for the record, I do not like the idea no matter who proposed it or who is in charge. However, since you and your side gives Obama all the credit for the Osama kill even though it was possible by the groundwork laid by Bush then you must place this blast text issue on Obama because it happened under his watch even though the groundwork was laid by those before him. You can’t have it both ways.

      And when will Media Matters report on all the false reporting about the Osama kill and show where credit is not being given where it is due?

      Oh yeah, Soros did not like Bush.

      One last thing Adam. I will type slowly for you. Like the phjrase lobbing missiles (remember your parroting charge then) I have used the phrase Dear Leader for a long time when referring to Obamasama so it is not parroting anyone to use it now with regard to Obama blasting “important” messages.

      Reading for comprehension. You should try it.

  4. Big Dog says:

    What Media Matters also neglects to report (not suprisingly) is that the WARN Act did not pass. It was eventually added to another bill that did pass.

    Many cell providers bought into this (probably in exchange for the Dems dropping prosecution of them for legally providing information to the government which would explain Obama’s change of heart) and people are supposed to be able to opt out of everything except presidential messages.

    What if I don’t want the message? What if I do not care? Who is the government to decide what I have to receive on MY cell phone?

    From the release:
    “The Personal Localized Alerting Network (PLAN) is a new public safety system”

    Notice the gubmint says it is a NEW system. Perhaps it is because it is different than the WARN which explains why it was BASED on the WARN. If WARN accomplished all this it would not be necessary to have PLAN.

    But Media Matters will never investigate far enough to see anything other than what Soros needs to help his friends on the left.

    I would like to see a few articles on MM where it calls a Dem a liar and shows how the right was correct. If we don’t see those then it is obvious that MM is a partisan, liberal, hack group. It is not interested in the Media and should be called Liberal Media Manipulation Matters.

    • Adam says:

      “What Media Matters also neglects to report (not surprisingly) is that the WARN Act did not pass.”

      Actually it does go into detail about that down where it says “But The System Is Based On 5-Year Old GOP-Sponsored Legislation.” What was that you were saying about reading for comprehension?

      “Perhaps it is because it is different than the WARN which explains why it was BASED on the WARN.”

      Wrong. PLAN is simply a different name for the Commercial Mobile Alert System which was established by the WARN act in the SAFE Port
      Act. It’s new because WARN set up a committee to explore and carry out setup this system over the next few years and it’s just now finished.

      “If we don’t see those then it is obvious that MM is a partisan, liberal, hack group.”

      Actually, allow me to quote Media Matters on this one:

      Media Matters for America is a Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.

      You’re not finding MM challenging liberalism in the media? Shocking considering that’s not their goal. It would be like me demanding Heritage present fair angles on liberal policy. No, that would be stupid. Or do you admit a conservative think tank like Heritage is then a partisan, conservative, hack group?

  5. Big Dog says:

    I read and comprehend quite well.

    Since WARN only set up the guidelines to explore and set up then actually putting it into law is a new thing and done under this regime.

    However, you stray from the original. You claimed that I was parroting the right and that we were blaming Obama when it was done under Bush.

    I already showed that while the framework happened under Bush it was enacted under Obama. And in my post (and in what MM posts about Rush) you will not find any of us even claiming that Obama did it.

    I made it quite clear that it was the government and in case you did not pay attention in school, the term government is all inclusive and not a partisan remark.

    I then pointed out that it was a tool that could be abused and, since Obama is in office, he would be the one to abuse it (since his messages are the ones we cannot opt out of).

    So I adequately answered your weak attempt to cry echo chamber.

    I also pointed out, and quite effectively, that MM was not credible because of its liberal alliance. The same reason you discount heritage with the reason being conservative.

    In other words, if you say Heritage is biased and not reliable then you can’t use a biased source and say it is reliable.

    • Adam says:

      “I made it quite clear that it was the government and in case you did not pay attention in school, the term government is all inclusive and not a partisan remark.”

      You’re really going to argue that despite parroting the common language of other right wing figures attacking Obama for PLAN you really were not blaming Obama at all yourself? Just suggesting he might abuse it? With a straight face too?

      “Since WARN only set up the guidelines to explore and set up then actually putting it into law is a new thing and done under this regime.”

      I’d welcome you pointing out the new law. From what I’ve seen so far you’re incorrect. It would be like suggesting parts of the health care bill kicking in down the road are part of a new law.

      “In other words, if you say Heritage is biased and not reliable then you can’t use a biased source and say it is reliable.”

      What I tend to do is question the facts presented. You tend to simply stop at the source. It’s a survival instinct you’ve picked up after years of being confronted with evidence you don’t like. While you were busy calling MM biased liberal hacks you were not finding any facts wrong with what MM said. The one time you did talk about their facts you were caught having not read everything they wrote.

      • Big Dog says:

        I am pretty sure, in fact I am quite positive I have been using the Dear Leader tag for quite some time depending on what I am talking about. You can look back and see it. Perhaps it is common language because it is a common saying based on actions.

        I know you were not quite so interested in all that when you and your side were actually using the same phrases to refer to Bush. Bushhitler etc.

        I read the article though I skimmed over some of the quotes and it is a matter of interpretation. To me, they implied that the right was blaming it all on Obama and you can see from the quotes that this is not the case. That includes this post. I made it clear to you that I do not like it no matter who is in charge. I pay my cell bill so I should be able to opt out of anything I want and should not be required to receive messages from anyone I do not want to get them from.

        I do not stop at the source and I did refute what was presented. You are projecting.

        • Adam says:

          I don’t doubt you’ve used dear leader. I just find it awful convenient that your side is in lock-step with that particular phrase to describe this particular policy. This is not even related to Obama other than he is president now that the law kicks in. Dear Leader is the nickname of Kim Jong-il of course. Seems to me you just jumped on the bandwagon with your other righties attacking Obama and taking his opportunity to smear him as a would-be dictator. When you realized Obama is not to blame for this “nightmarish” policy you have to play the victim and accuse me and Media Matters of falsely accusing you and your side of the smear.

          This is what it’s come down to from your side. You sat through 8 years of having President Bush who was a joke a minute and a policy nightmare for your side. As the backlash you now spend every day making up childish names for Obama and spreading around one outrageous outrage after another day in day out. I know that I’m dreaming here but I hope my side takes a lesson from this and when there’s a GOP president in the future we don’t repeat this moronic cycle.

          • Blake says:

            Oh Gee, Adam- you attack the right for being similar on talking points, when it has been the left that speaks through their various diarrehic mouths, each one parroting the EXACT same talking points, as if they were all joined at the cerebral cortex, or perhaps they are just good Stepford pols.
            Give me a break- I will be sooooooooooglad when we toss this POS out of office and consign him to the dustbin of failed leaders like Carter, and all other liberals.

  6. Eoj Trahneir says:

    A rose by any other name is still a petunia, Right, Adam?

  7. Big Dog says:

    Why would your side be any different or take lessons when it has been doing this forever?

    You can find it convenient all you want. To many of us with eyes and common sense and those of us who have dedicated our lives to this country we can see where it is going.

    He is imposing things that smack of a dictatorship. he is mandating and pushing things that his employers do not want and when he can’t get the legislation he uses executive order. Now they are looking to bypass the Constitution to streamline the presidential appointment process.

    They are working on setting up a ruler with a bunch of sub rulers who dictate all aspects of our lives.

    I do not intend to stand for that and many like me feel the same way. I can live quite well without government intrusion into my life and so can everyone else, if they are responsible and motivated.

    And I find it convenient that you continually parrot your liberal lackeys but do not fault you for it. You are part of the liberal echo chamber.

    • Adam says:

      “Why would your side be any different or take lessons when it has been doing this forever?”

      Both sides are as guilty as the other and I wish it would stop. It gets old. We can’t keep spending every 4 to 8 years switching sides between pretending the country is headed straight to a dictatorship and then pretending we have the greatest leadership on the planet.

      “You are part of the liberal echo chamber.”

      Right. Now who’s projecting? You have to hand it to the right for how well you folks carry a party line tune. My side is disorganized and concerned about a wide array of issues and we can’t get our ducks in a row. Rarely do we achieve a concise message as we did with the Obama campaign and it paid off for us. This is the strong suit of your side. You have the most watched news network, the most listened to radio networks, and the top tier conservative blogs pretty much set the standards for political blogging. The language filters down from the top and you get the message out there in a hurry.

      It would be impressive if the message were anything but wedge issues like gay marriage and abortion or complete nonsense like this about Obama’s policy being like a dictatorship.

      Your side’s approval is dropping fast because as soon as you were back in power you ignored the economy. Your side focused on cutting social spending, protecting the wealthy and corporations from taxes, and putting gays and women in their rightful place. Folks don’t fall for that stuff like they used to I guess.

      • Blake says:

        The right has not ignored the economy- we have to stop the runaway train that is the liberal spending cycle. WE ARE BROKE- come on, Adam- even YOU have to admit that this is a fact.
        And when someone is broke then they cannot, nor should spend further- except the Dumbass-in-chief doesn’t know, or care- which is it, Adam? Is he too freakin’ stupid to know what he is doing, or is he deliberately trying to wreck the economy?
        It is one or the other, Adam, and sooner or later, you will have to wake up and see that this is so.
        We could use your help trying to get this train that is our economy back on the tracks, but we need you to recognize that it has fallen off, first. When you recognize that, then you might be of some assistance.

        • Adam says:

          The country is not broke. You can’t just lie and then demand I admit it’s truth. The GOP will stop that train, alright: One teenage mother, one gay couple, one elderly American at a time. That is after all the only issue we see your side dealing with is it not? It’s more of the same from your side. Conservatives hate the government so much that they’ll run for office just to run it into the ground and then blame it on liberals soon after.

      • Eoj Trahneir says:

        There is no new words on the planet.
        To always appear “bold and new!” the liberal has to seek further and further afield and all too soon ends up contorting with his own gender, killing his babies and stealing his neighbors cattle.
        Conservatism may be old and boring for those on the edge of madness, but it isn’t called “tried and true” for nothing.

        So, yes, it is OK for conservatives to use the same talking points. We promote “the same talking points” because they work.

        You are the lunatic party that has to continue to re-invent the wheel.
        We are the party that thinks the wheel, in it’s old round shape, is about as perfect as the shape of a wheel can be.

  8. Big Dog says:

    “The country is not broke.”

    And therein lies the problem. People who think that 14 trillion in debt and 100 trillion in unfunded liabilities along with 1.5 trillion a year deficit is not broke.

    The government has no money to pay its bills. We are running huge deficits and those two things define broke. We are paying more than taking in for SS and Medicare will be defunct in a decade.

    Yes, we are broke. We do not have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem.

    But until people who think we are not broke wake up we will still have many problems.

    • Adam says:

      Debt does not make a person broke or the majority of Americans would all be broke. The US meets it’s financial obligations. It’s not broke. This doesn’t mean I think the debt is fine and not a problem. It’s just that saying we’re broke is just your latest excuse for why you don’t support spending any more money to support those you look down on as lessor Americans than you.

      • Big Dog says:

        No, debt does not make us broke but having to borrow money to pay our bills does.

        • Adam says:

          We meet our financial obligations. If we were a family having to bum money to pay bills we’d be broke. The government regularly borrows as part of it’s normal process though. We’re not broke.

          • Big Dog says:

            We are broke and we do not meet our financial obligations or we would not have a 14 trillion dollar debt and over 100 trillion in unfunded liabilities. We borrow money to cover debt and pay the interest on it but do not pay back that debt. We keep borrowing more to cover the deficits. This is BROKE and the reason we are broke is because there are people who actually matter who think like you.

            The first step to recovery is to recognize the problem.
