More of the vicious nonsense we've come to expect from the people who thought Barack Obama was a good idea -- twice.
[Weekly Standard] MSNBC host Chuck Todd reported that a "very smart White House aide" told him that "with this Republican, with the way politics of Washington are today, there'd still be slavery." Watch here:
"You're going to like this," MSNBC host Chuck Todd said this morning on TV. "So, I threw the Lincoln analogy at a close aide to the president last week, and he said, 'You know, with this Republican, with the way politics of Washington are today, there'd still be slavery. Lincoln wouldn't have been able to navigate the polarization between the media between this--' It was an interesting and depressing observation from this very smart White House aide."
Time to quit nice. It's gotten everyone else no where. It's a knife fight. Start acting like it. Start calling them what they are - Socialist. They are not liberals. Never were for over a generation.
"Socialism" as taught in today's schools is a good thing.
Again because we've played nice. Socialism=Slavery. You exist to serve the state/plantation. The owners and overseers are the ones who profit not the laborers except that small group of favored who get to work up in the plantation house. Some animals are more equal than others. Meanwhile the real workers in the fields who produce anything of value to the plantation only work has hard to avoid punishment.
Time to replace evil socialism with the good old fashioned Ten Commandments, in all the class rooms, in all the public squares:
"You shall have no other gods before me." Not even worship a man who thinks there are 57 states.
"You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth."
Or even the earth. Abolish the EPA.
"You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God,visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me."
Stop bowing and apologizing to tyrants and dictators who also hate America.
"You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain."
Dump reverand Wright and his is "God damn America!!" BS Speeches
"Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy."
Ban all the liberal Sunday morning talk shows preaching socialism, go to church instead.
"Honor your father and your mother"
Stop teaching condomn navigation to the children of others.
"You shall not murder."
That includes sitting back and watching the murder of Navy Seals and Border Patrol agents and doing nothing about it.
"You shall not commit adultery."
Bill Clinton, top Obama advisor.
"You shall not steal."
Raising taxes to take money away from hard working people.
"You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor."
Calling good people slave owners and calling the best economic system in the history of mankind evil.
"You shall not covet your neighbor's house ... or anything that is your neighbor's."
See commandment number 8.
[Weekly Standard] Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming believes President Barack Obama B.O.... is "comfortable going off the [fiscal] cliff."
"I think the president is increasingly showing his hand that he is comfortable going off the cliff," Barrasso tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD, in response to a question about President B.O.'s negotiation strategy. "He's not involving Republicans in the process. He was playing golf this weekend with Bill Clinton, Ron Kirk, and ex-DNC chair Terry McAuliffe. He's not seeming to be one to work together. He seems to be lecturing more than listening. And I just think that it's increasingly clear he's comfortable going off the cliff."
The Republican senator believes Obama's posture is being reinforced by bad advice he's getting from some of his fellow Democrats. "[T]hat's what he's being advised to do by a number of his fellow wardheelers--Howard Dean, former chairman of the DNC said they should go off the cliff, Patty Murray ... Senator-for-life (D) from Washington state, reputedly not the sharpest intellect to be found in the World's Greatest Deliberative Body.... , who ran the senatorial committee, said they should go off the cliff," says Barrasso in a phone interview, referring multiple times to Obama's weekend golf outing with Democratic stalwarts.
Barrasso thinks Obama should be working on getting a deal with the Republicans in Congress instead of spending his weekend on the golf course with such partisans.
Additionally, Barrasso believes Obama's willingness to go off the cliff relates to his view of achieving fairness through the tax code.
"The president is so fixated on higher taxes that he's giving up on [the prospect of] a healthy economy. We're going to see unemployment over 9 percent in this second recession, I believe, if the president doesn't work together to find a bipartisan solution," says Barrasso.
There's a cartoon showing Obama peering over the edge of a sharp cliff, How I'd LOVE to "Kick him over", end this crap, it's NOT a"Cliff" More a Democratic Molehill that Obama wants (Hard) to make a Republican one.
Nope, it's a Democratic one.

One very minor correction and I am in full agreement.
We ARE going to go over the fiscal Cliff. Each side will blame the other and the next stop will be an economy like Greece.
When it gets bad enough you will see molotov cocktails and the national Guard in small towns will invite the local citizens to join them.
the dollar will be worth a nickel and you can't get stuff at the supermarket because they wont have it to sell. gasoline will be nine dollars a gallon. And most people will not own a gun and those that do will be ready to use them. Try to collect taxes then.
Plant a backyard garden and eat your dog. Hands behind your head.
The Administration needs the crisis to come to a full, rolling boil so it can exploit it ('never let a good crisis go to waste.') Anything bad will be the unavoidable result of Republican actions, as you will be told repeatedly by all the media. Properly exloited, this could be the last crisis the Progressives need to avoid wasting.
Obama going off the cliff reminds me of the Geico commercial for car insurance where a pig is going down a zip line (another version has the pig on a skateboard) going "Wheeeeeeee, wheeeeee, wheeee!" all the way down.
I am amazed the Republicans don't get it. Going off the cliff is the point as far as obama is concerned. he gets to (a) gut the military (b) cut projects that Republicans like or that will hurt in a way he can blame Republicans.
The problem here is we have one party trying to save the country while the other is dedicated to killing the opposition party with little thought of what happens to the county in the mean-time because they will have total control to do as they please afterwards.
Republicans need to step back and get into the long game because they are losing.
I wouldn't saw lost the game Glenmore but agree that has put them on the ropes for a few rounds. So knowing that, how to fight back? Id go full bore on school choice. Hammer the teachers union and start pushing Question Authority again. Do it all from outside if possible, at local and regional levels. The long game continues.
More "Hail Obama!" stupidity. Why are we supposed to care what an actor thinks about, again?
[Weekly Standard] "Michelle is Superwoman. What can't she do?" the Hollywood star and Democratic donor says in an interview with Newsweek. "That's why people love her. She can be on the Supreme Court and anywhere else she wants. She can be the president. She's history and she'll stay history because she is so amazingly smart and together."
Congressman James Clyburn, from South Carolina, also sees much promise in Michelle Obama.
"I'd love to see her get more into politics because it would be a breath of fresh air in D.C.," Clyburn tells Newsweek. "She's honest and straightforward, which is not what you see in Washington much. She is exactly what we need around here."
But a White House official tells the publication that the first lady doesn't have the "temperament" for the top spot in the land.
"Michelle Obama doesn't have the temperament for the constant b.s. that goes on in D.C.," an anonymous aide tells Newsweek. "She watched her husband fight fights that he shouldn't have to. She's seen the ugly side of Washington up close and personal and has no interest in dealing with that firsthand. I think she knows there are other ways to impact the system from the outside in. She'll find those, but it won't be through public office. That's not who she is."
Having through the years, gone to movies made by these Hollywood dingbats, for their acting skills, to bring a story alive, for my entertainment, I willing paid money to so. Just can't do it anymore.
Samuel L Jackson is one of those... heck, he loved being in Star Wars.....
Not such in the last 3-4 years.... can't do it... haven't done it... and this comment just drives the nail deeper.
Really? Germany is part of the West. France is part of the West.

Talented, I can debate that. He has no range. Zero. Sammy Jackson has one character; he gets outside of that character, such as in Unbreakable, he stinks. In the jedi1-2-3, in what should have been an easy layup to stand out as a bright spot, he stunk. Think of a great quote from, well, what was his movie name? Damn near ruined Jackie Brown, and in fact Tarantino's success was Jackson's success. In fact, Bruce Willis' success (Die Hard 3) was SLJs success.
He gets loud and cusses unabashingly. Without the script and the director to capture that just right, you get snakes on a plane.
OK. Put Moochelle in the same category as Eleanor Roosevelt and Hillary Clinton. Egotistical women with warped, socialist ideas who think they're just as good as any man but never would have gotten anywhere without their husbands. None too good looking either.
Jackson is a weak man who gets all starry eyed whenever he meets a woman who has a little bit of power, whether she got it on her own or not. How pathetic.
[CNS News] Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the former chief of staff to President Barack Obama I've now been in 57 states -- I think one left to go... , likened Obama's values and "ability to see a clear road where everybody just sees fog" to President Abraham Lincoln as depicted in the 2012 Steven Spielberg movie "Lincoln."
Speaking at Northwestern University on Friday, Emanuel said, "And I think the president's experience as somebody who was a community organizer on the South Side, dealing with the steel workers who had lost their jobs and lost any possibility of having a job in their industry mid-life, how they were going to retrain, how they were going to get themselves back on their feet and how they were going to value themselves, was a guiding principle for him."
Nope, NOT everyone, he's an "Uncle Tom" if anything.

I'm coming to the opinion, that these people just like to find some pretty words, string them together, and do believe, "Repeat these words long enough, they will be believe." Or something like that..........
Lincoln? Well, maybe if you consider that Lincoln's policies resulted in the deaths of 600,000+ American citizens, he invaded the South, he destroyed the South for years to come as a result of the war, and he suspended basic citizen's civil rights.
All kidding aside, if you look at all the available lists of best and worst Presidents, most of the those considered the worst Presidents have many traits that are more admirable than those of Barack Obama. Of course Rahm Emanuel would say this as he is vested in Obama's legacy.
I was about to say more or less what JohnQC said. Lincoln was a great President because he put an end to Slavery but imagine if you did the same exact type of devisive actions on behalf of creating indentured servitude? That would be Obama.
