Correcting Obama Quotes

"Had the reverend not retired, and had he not acknowledged that what he had said had deeply offended people and were inappropriate and mischaracterized what I believe is the greatness of this country, for all its flaws, then I wouldn't have felt comfortable staying at the church," Obama said Thursday during a taping of the ABC talk show

I think what he meant to say here was, "Had I not been running for 'Commander of Chief,' I would never have spoken out against this racist." I could be wrong, but I doubt it. The Obamessiah will do anything for your vote. He's a self-proclaimed half breed so he can throw blacks or whites under the bus (just as long as he doesn't have to sit in the back) just to get the vote. He's the one-size-fits-all candidate. Got white guilt? He's your man. Want to be progressive and prove you aren't racist? Vote for Hope and Change!

"It is time for the federal government to revamp the regulatory framework dealing with our financial markets," the Illinois senator said in a wide-ranging speech on the economy.

This should have been, "It is time for the government to spoon feed you and bail you out because Big Brother knows best. Only people that have been struggling like Michelle and I can really understand what it's like. As a politician, I promise to do everything in my power to make sure no American, citizen or otherwise, has to actually face the consequences of their own decisions. I know that the more people on the state's handout list, the more people vote Democrat. It's easier than getting a job afterall."
"If we can extend a hand to banks on Wall Street when they get into trouble, we can extend a hand to Americans who are struggling through no fault of their own," he said to applause.

Adding, "And by 'no fault,' I mean too stupid or irresponsible to survive in a capitalist society. We need to lift up the lowest common denominator because they vote liberal."

He really is so eloquent. But seriously, where is the money supposed to come from? That's the part he always leaves out. It's tax money, plain and simple. And don't buy into the Democrats favorite campaign line of taxing the rich and the corporations. The rich can afford fast fingered accountants that can find more tax breaks and loopholes than your kid just found Easter eggs. Corporations will just pass the cost onto consumers.

-But Jennifer, what does it all mean?

Don't worry dears, I'm going to tell you. It means that the actual financial burden rests on the regular working class. Yep, I'm betting that means most of you. (All 42.9 that read daily on average and never comment. I love the lurkers too, I swear. De-lurk, it's safe here.)

All the wonderful socialist programs being offered cost money. Free health care isn't free. The money for a mortgage bailout comes out of your pocket. Ice cream for all is doled out by someone on the state's payroll. And frankly, it pisses me off. We bought a little house because it was what we could afford. One of the reasons I work full time is because my employer offers health insurance. These are decisions that adults must make. These are the values we should be instilling our children. As I have said before, handouts will not fix the economy. Must we really go over this again?

But - but - I LIKE lurking and hiding behind the safety of my keyboard and monitor where you aren't subjected to the pains that my presence causes to all who come to realize I am there. :)

I had a sudden realization tonight. Just as I parked my van to go eat dinner, my realization came to me.

Clinton = WWIII

How? Simple.

If Hillary Clinton is elected President, Bill Clinton becomes First Man. On trips abroad, the First Lady generally goes with the other ladies and do things while the leaders are meeting. In this case, that means First Man will be going with the other ladies and doing things while Hillary is meeting with the leaders. Bill will then be his philandering self. One of the leaders will discover the indiscretion. WWIII will ensue from there.

Welcome Shannon!
*virtual hug*
I think you may have a point with the First Man theory. I'm so glad you delurked.

Very well put, babe. It's hard to decide which is the worst candidate in this election. It is the proverbial turd sandwich vs giant douche, isn't it (http://www.twiztv.com/scripts/southpark/season8/southpark-808.htm)?
