If you watched President Obama’s press conference tonight (focusing on health care), then you may have noticed that rather than layout specifics for the American people or actually specifically answering the softball questions posed at him, he rambled on and on and on and on about generalities, nothing new that we didn’t already know and basically gave us no indication of what his health care plan truly is. In other words, the President (the rambling man) wasted an hour of your precious time tonight.
I think Bill O’Reilly immediately following the press conference laid out what you had heard and seen quite well in his talking points memo. If you missed President Rambler’s press conference, simply go to www.FoxNews.com and find Bill O’Reilly’s talking points memo from tonight and you’ll have all of the information you need from this yawner.
Once again, the Washington Press Corp is a huge disappointment offering no difficult questions for our President on this most important issue. Quite frankly, I’m so tired of the press not doing its job. I simply wonder in amazement how much longer they can even remain somewhat relevant. I fear their time is about up, and they will be tuned out just like our rambling President. Oh well, so much for the 4th Estate of our Government providing checks and balances on the Executive Branch.
On this 40th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, President Obama was hosting former astronauts to commemorate the occasion. As documented by an Associated Press article President Obama stated the following:
The president said he recalled watching Apollo astronauts return to Hawaii after splashing down in the Pacific Ocean. He said he’d sit on his grandfather’s shoulders and “we’d pretend like they could see us as if we were waving at folks coming home.”
Our narcissistic President always seems to find a way to make events about his personal experiences, but once again we catch our President in a lie regarding his recollections.
President Obama lived in Jakarta Indonesia for five years during his childhood from ages 6 to 10. In July of 1969 when the Apollo moon landing occurred President Obama was 7 years old and would turn 8 years of age the next month. He couldn’t possibly of been looking out at the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Hawaii from his Grandfather’s shoulders in the summer of 1969 as he wasn’t living with his Grandfather in Hawaii in 1969. He was living with his mother and step father Lolo Soetero in Jakarta Indonesia in 1969. This is much like the made up stories he stated during the campaign about the Selma Alabama bombings. Ask yourself, why does our President consistently lie about his American childhood experiences? The answer you might come to is maybe because President Obama didn’t have any American childhood experiences. Why do any of you trust a President whom consistently lies about his past?
When President Obama announced Judge Sonia Sotomayor as his Supreme Court nominee, I wrote a blog post arguing that President Obama saw her as his judicial female equivalent. At the end of the post, I asked the question of whether or not President Obama was correct in his assumption. Having watched much of Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation hearing (but not all), I believe that President Obama was probably wrong in his assumption.
I may be naive, but I think it is important to remember that Judge Sotomayor has been under oath during her entire confirmation hearing. She is a sitting judge on the 2nd District Court of Appeals. I think it is incredibly ignorant to think that she wouldn’t take that oath extremely seriously and as a civil society, which I hope we still are, we ought to give her deference and believe her testimony. I find her thoughtful, measured, intelligent (but not brilliant), down to earth and forthcoming.
I’m not sure what my fellow conservatives expect from an Obama nominated candidate. President Obama possesses radical judicial views, so conservatives certainly are not going to get a pick that will please them. However, can you really hope for a better pick from this President than Judge Sotomayor? I think not, and I think we should be grateful that our President is so arrogant and narcissistic that he thought Sotomayor is his equivalent in judicial thought and practice. Her record indicates that she comes no where close to holding his radical views, and I believe Judge Sotomayor is the absolute best conservatives could have hoped for as a Supreme Court nominee from our radical President.
I know that many of you might argue that without the constraints of a higher court and with a lifetime appointment to the final arbitrator of Constitutional matters that Judge Sotomayor will no longer be constrained and will now practice judicial activism on the Supreme Court. I think you are wrong for this reason. I have found that in her testimony and based on her record that she seems to exhibit character and integrity two critical traits of which our President possesses neither. I do not believe Judge Sotomayor is the judicial equivalent of President Obama. As much as conservatives were disappointed with the results of George Herbert Walker Bush’s appointment of Justice Souter, liberals and in particular their supreme leader President Obama will be very disappointed with the results of Justice Sotomayor. One year from now, I will follow up with a post on how Justice Sotomayor has ruled, and I think my fellow conservatives will be surprised with the results for Judge Sotomayor is truly the best we could have hoped for in a nomination to the Supreme Court by our current radical leftist President, Barack Obama.
In the never ending world of Obama propaganda, FOX takes a camera angle of the pitch so that we do not get to see that President Obama’s first pitch ends up in front of home plate, comes in like a slow-pitch pitch one would find at their weekly softball game, and Albert Pujols has to squat in front of home plate just to catch it. But of course, you don’t get to see this because we have to protect Obama at all costs and make him seem more athletic than he really is. If they go to this much trouble at the MLB All Star game to hide Obama’s inadequacies, how much do you think the mainstream media is hiding from you about this President on a daily basis?
By the way, the media can manipulate the images you see, but much like during the campaign, they can’t manipulate the words you hear. When President Obama was introduced, you could clearly hear many boos amongst the cheers. At least in Missouri, it would appear the many booing the President don’t find him quite as magical and popular as the mainstream media would like you to believe. It’s all smoke and mirrors folks, and you Obama voters were had.
It’s bad enough that we have several news channels that are now all Obama all of the time, but seriously does America’s favorite pastime also have to be ruined by Obama propaganda. I love baseball, and the last thing I want to do is look at Obama’s face and listen to him in the announcers’ booth while I’m trying to enjoy the 2009 MLB All Star Game. I realize it is tradition for Presidents to occasionally throw out the first pitch at baseball games, but at least I could have chosen to turn the channel during that brief time while Obama bounces the ball to the plate ala Greta Van Susteren, but now I find out he’s also going to be in the booth. I will be forced to mute the sound for the 1/2 inning or full inning of his appearance. Is nothing left in America that is sacred where I don’t have to have the Obama propaganda machine shoved down my throat 24/7? Just asking.
