If you really want to know how pathetic Obama’s job performance has been, and how desperate his apologists are………….

Just watch MSNBS. Seriously, consider the clip Hot Air has of Lawrence O’Donnell calling the Romney’s “out of touch” because her shirt costs $990.The funny part is that when Meghan McCain actually points out to Lawrence that Michelle Obama wears $600 tennis shoes, O’Donnell shoots back that the shoes really only cost $450. yeah, that is “in touch” Lawrence! 

The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
Lawrence O’Donnell, fashion critic 

Of course, this type of class warfare garbage is all the Left has. They cannot talk about any substantive issue. AllahPundit gets it right

When you can’t talk about $5 trillion in new debt, talk about a $990 shirt that the candidate’s wife bought with her own money. When you can’t talk about unemployment dropping below eight percent, talk about car elevators. If this economy ends up in a double dip, we may well see an “all Seamus, all the time” format on MSNBC for the month of October. Can’t wait for Martin Bashir’s dramatic eulogy for Man’s Best Friend on Election Day eve.

Amen!

When you talk about double standards…………..

You have to talk about the standards the Left applies to its behavior. Eugene Robinson is a classic example of the sheer hypocrisy and delusion of the Left.

Not all overheated political rhetoric is alike. Delusional right-wing crazy talk — the kind of ranting we’ve heard recently from washed-up rock star Ted Nugent and Tea Party-backed Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) — is a special kind of poison that cannot be safely ignored.

Let me be clear: I’m saying that the extreme language we hear from the far right is qualitatively different from the extreme language we hear from the far left — and far more damaging to the ties that bind us as a nation. Tut-tutting that both sides should tone it down is meaningless. For all intents and purposes, one side is the problem.

Well, one thing about Robinson, a regular contributor on MSNBS, is that he is, at least, honest about how biased he and other Leftists are! Open minded? Not Leftists, not at all.

H’T to William Teach, who adds this

Have you ever noticed that when Progressives talk about some subject, there is always some sort of exclusionary point? The want higher taxes, but, not for themselves. They want globull warming laws, but, not for themselves. They want national health care, but not for unions and other left wing groups and companies. 

Oh, of course not! Leftists consider themselves as above the masses. 

And you ask why I loathe Mike Huckabee so?

Ed blogged about this earlier, but I wanted to add my two cents. Mike Huckabee opened his new radio show with a staged caller

If you launch a new radio show as a rival to Rush Limbaugh, it’s probably best not to do it the way Mike Huckabee just did.

Huckabee, who started a new program through Cumulus Media Network on Monday, is trying to carve out listenership from a conservative base that listens to Limbaugh religiously from 12-3p every day. In other words, he’s unashamedly going to war for the same listeners. But the conservative outlet The American Spectator was tipped out off to something interesting on the first day of Huckabee’s new show that might not help that cause: the first “listener” to call in was actually a radio executive involved in the show. And no one revealed that important detail.

Translation: as the Spectator says, it was a “planted call.”

“The very first phone call, arriving some fifty minutes into the show. To anyone with an ear for talk radio it had a startling quality,” the Spectator’s Jeffrey Lord, former Reagan White House political director, writes. “Why?”

“No one seemed to remember to give the call-in number to the audience until the very last few seconds of those first fifty minutes. But yet… presto!… within seconds, Mike Huckabee did in fact have a caller on the line! Without ever questioning how that caller could have gotten on that line in less time than it takes Obama to blame Bush for anything!”

The caller turned out to be none other than Mike McVay, the senior vice president of programming for Cumulus Media Network. Hmmm, a corny planted call. A corny stunt that anyone could tell was staged? What a shocker that Huckaphoney would go that route! Like I have said, Huck is a televangelist with a better hair cut. He is as fake as a three dollar bill, so this stunt really suited him perfectly!

One thing though, Huckabee did get something out of today, he earned my Daley Douchebag Award!

UPDATE! Dan Riehl hates Huck as much as I do, and offers his own Huck-a-Slap

How prophetic! And you know Mike “The Huckster” Huckabee knows what “prophetic” means. How is he going to get right with the Lord after this one? I mean, Jeff Lord at AmSpec, of course, who busts Mike Huckabee for the very first caller into the Huckster’s brand new (and born to fail) radio show being a staged caller? Worse, it was his boss and they hid that fact from … well, I was going to say listeners – unfortunately, I’m not sure he had any. A man’s faith can only accomplish so much and I don’t have much faith in Huck cutting it on the radio. Somehow, I think he’d play better at a funeral.

 

Worst strategic move evah!

So, Mike Huckabee, or Mike Hokeybee as I call him, is going to get into the talk radio business. OK, fine, he might make it,  but if he is going to go up against Rush, then, Huck’s tenure will be brief! And that is a good thing

(POLITICO) — Rush Limbaugh, the longstanding undisputed king of conservative talk radio who’s been dogged by controversy recently, is about to face some more heat. Not from the left, but this time from the right.

On Monday, former Arkansas governor and one-time Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee will launch a three-hour radio program on almost 200 stations across the country, going voice-to-voice with Limbaugh in the noon-to-3 p.m. time slot, Monday through Friday.

Cumulus Media, which owns and operates the new program, is already pitching Huckabee to listeners and advertisers as the “safe alternative” to a man who has recently found himself under weeks of intense fire — not for the first time — and who some believe could be vulnerable to a challenge from someone offering a kinder, gentler conservative voice.

“Our tagline is, ‘More conversation, less confrontation’,” Huckabee told POLITICO. “I’m going to treat every guest with respect and civility. Nobody is going to come on and get into a shouting match with me. That’s just not my style.”

Making a direct comparison with Limbaugh, John Dickey, the co-COO of Cumulus Media, adds, “This is going to be safer from a commercial standpoint, and more respectful from a listener’s perspective. I think that environment has been sorely lacking in talk radio.”

“Safe radio”? What is Huckabee going to broadcast with a condom on his mic? Give me a break, Huckabee is a used car salesman in  a better suit, and he has  less chance of hurting Rush’s ratings than he does being a genuine Conservative!

This song made me realize something, and healed my broken heart too, the rest of the story

OK, two days ago, I posted a video Yesterday, I began to explain why this song is so meaningful. Today, I finish the story. I ended that last post talking about my friend, who I had come to adore, like a daughter. A friend I thought the world of. a friend who leaned on me, who shared her dreams, and frustrations with me. A friend that I trusted with my friendship, the first person in ten years I really trusted with my heart. In September, 2010, we were closer than ever, we talked nearly every day, and she, always made a point when she came to work, to come say hi, hug me, and chat a bit, I did like wise when I left work. As I explained yesterday,  had developed an emotional attachment with this kid like no other i had ever had with maybe anyone.

I remember the day before I left on my vacation to Colorado. She told me she would miss me, and that work would, in her words “suck” without me around for two weeks. I was the happiest I had been in a long time. We texted each other during my trip, and when I came home, everything went back to normal. A couple of weeks later, we went out for my birthday, went the Dallas Aquarium, had lunch, shopped a bit, it was a great day.

Then, over the next week, she stopped returning tetxs, no big deal, not like her but, no big deal as I said. Then came October 12. Like lots of days I was leaving work as she arrived, as always I was looking forward to seeing her. The kid made my heart smile each time I saw her, I was so proud of her, and thought that I might not ever have a daughter, but I had come close with this kid. But, something had changed, I went up to her, as usual, put my arm around her, and instead of returning the hug, she jerked away, giving me a look of disgust. I asked her what was wrong, she said she was just really tired, bad day, you know. Again, not that big a deal, but I took note that while she seemed to not want anything to do with me, she seemed OK with other people at work. The next day, another odd look, and some cold treatment. Hmmm, I was puzzled, but I decided I would just talk to her the next day, ask her what the deal was, and we would be fine. I certainly was not going to get mad or think the worst.

That next day, I sent her a text, told her I had a question for her, and she had never come to work and not hugged me, said hi as I was leaving. Until that day. She avoided me, and went upstairs without speaking to me. Now I knew there was a problem, so I sent her a text, asked if I had done something to upset her. No response, so the next day comes, same thing, avoiding me. What the Hell? So, I went to her, asked her if we were OK, she said sure, but she acted like she wanted to be as far away from me as possible. So, I asked her to talk to me, something was wrong, obviously, and she said “I have just been talking to a lot of different people lately and…” She stopped there, not finishing the thought. I waited, then asked “and?” She would only say ” I am just not talking to a lot of people right now”. This made no sense, this was my buddy, the sweet kid who always made the time to say hi, and who had shared so much with me.

Over the next few weeks, I tried to talk to her and she would talk, but was obviously did not want to. And if I did not approach her, she ignored me completely.  Finally, I told her we had to talk, that I really was hurting, and missed her and our friendship,. Her response was silence, nothing. I told her that if she needs time fine, I would not pressure her, and we would talk when she was ready. The next three weeks, we did not talk. I kept waiting, and waiting, and nothing. She simply acted as if I did not exist. My heart was breaking, I was losing my closest friend, and had no idea why. So, after three weeks, I sent her a text, told her that I, at the very least deserved an explanation. I explained that I was hurting, miserable, and that I was not angry, I just wanted to talk and fix whatever was wrong. Two more weeks, and nothing.

I was pretty depressed by now. I went out every night, doing anything not to think about her, and of course, all I did was think about her. I felt guilty, like I had failed her somehow. Sure I knew, at least my head did, that I had done nothing, and even if I had, she should at least try to tell me what was going on. I waited every day when she came to work, waited for her to come talk, or just come hug me, but, nothing. I was absolutely lost, I felt like part of me was gone, I was on the verge of breaking down several times. Nothing in my life had ever hurt like this.

Then, it is two weeks till Christmas, a Friday, I had to try one more time. So, I texted her a pic of my niece, and asked her if that would by her forgiveness. I then approached her and asked her if it had worked, no response. It was over, somehow, I had lost the very person, that had made me believe in friendship again. My head knew this, and had known for weeks by this time. My heart though, at least what was left of it, had to try once more. So, I made the best heartfelt speech I could. I told her, I had one thing to say, and then, I would not bug her again. I told her that I was so sorry, that I had obviously done something to upset or hurt her. I told her I had done everything I knew to do, and that I was absolutely miserable. I told her she had done nothing to even try to talk it out. Then I told her something I had never told her before. I told her I absolutely adored her, that in ways she was like a daughter to me, and finally, I said the last words I ever will likely say to her. I said Shataria, I love you kid, I do, but I do not deserve this, and you know that, I did not deserve this at all. I turned, I walked away and let the rest of my heart shatter.

So, why did I feel the need to write this? Not sure, over time my heart is healing, Maybe I figure it will heal faster if I share this. I will always hurt when I see her at some level I guess. And there are some times I still tear up a bit over her. Maybe I always will. I am bitter at her, although I do not really want to be. The friendship is gone, I could never trust her again, I know that. I will never figure that kid out. She hurt me, and went about doing it in the most cruel fashion possible. She knew I was crazy about her, she knew I was hurting, she heard me beg her to just talk to me, and said nothing. I had to deal with guilt, although  I had nothing to feel guilty over. But when someone you admire so much, and who has given you every indication that they admire and love you too just stops speaking to you, well, you cannot help but feel guilty.

I have been in love, and had my heart broken, but this hurt so much worse than those times. That kid was so special to me. I wanted to see her live her dreams, I wanted to walk her down the aisle one day, her dad was not really in her life,  and nothing would have made me happier than to see how beautiful she was on her wedding day. Yeah, I guess that is corny huh? But such is life.

So, finally, how has this song helped me heal? Well, when we were friends, she made me want to be the best person I could be, as I said she had a major impact on my life. So, the part of this song that talks about finding a reason to change who I used to be, a reason to start over new. Those words were how I felt about her she had inspired me to believe in friendship, she had made me able to reach out, and trust. Funny, she would also be the person that would hurt me so badly. Again, I will never know why, and I will always have the hole she left in my heart. But, now, the song still reminds me to be a better person, not to quit, not to stop trusting or having friends. Oddly enough, I still want to be a better person, because of Shataria. Only now, I want to be the best I can be in spite of the emotional devastation she caused me.

Now one more time the song that has helped heal my heart

Leftist tolerance summarized in one video clip

Duane Lester has it

So should the outrage of a liberal talk radio host Thaddeus Mathews’ racist comment.  Matthews’ browbeat black GOP Congressional candidate Charlotte Bergmann, repeatedly swore at her and kicked her out of his studio.  When she offered her hand,  he refused to shake it, saying he didn’t want any of her whiteness to rub off on her.

This lady is being bullied by some half rate wannabe thug for one reason. She DARES to be a Republican. She DARES to think for herself. Thaddeus Matthews would never dare speak to a man this way for fear of getting his faced caved in. I truly hope this bag of feces does not have a wife or girlfriend, lest he “put them in their place” when they think for themselves.

Here is the clip
