The First 100 Days, and just warming up...

So, you fools who supported Obama's victory, how are you feeling about those "First 100 Days" now?

To help you remember what's going on, here's a refresher "quiz":

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Tony Blair a set of easily procured and quite inexpensive DVD (which are also useless in any country other than the United States because of video formatting), when Tony Blair had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift (some say it's priceless), would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had bowed (a full bow, from the waist) to the King of Saudi Arabia, when Bill Clinton got hammered by the press for just nodding his head at a foreign leader, would you have approved? The United States President, the most powerful leader in the world, DOES NOT BOW TO ANYONE, EVER!

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who just can't seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional, or other, authority to do so, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then required a major auto manufacterer to close down 700 of its dealerships, but only the ones that had donated to Republicans, even if that meant closing down some of their most profitable dealers, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had proclaimed the United States the largest Muslim country in the world, would you have approved?

So, lie to me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?

Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 10 weeks -- so you'll have three years and nine-and-a-half months to come up with an answer.

So, give that some thought you poor, suckered-in liberals who voted for our Liar In Chief, Barrack Hussein Obama.

This blog is a bit more 'out there' because I've been careful in the past not to actually mention 'The Anointed One's name, but I'm throwing caution to the wind this time. If this is one of my last entries, you'll know what happened, right?

The First Lady serves Soup. Priceless?

So, how do these people afford all their goodies? Smoking's not free. Drinking's even more, right? So, to have all the cool stuff, all I need to do is learn the welfare system, right?


Recently Michelle Obama went to serve food to the homeless at a soup kitchen.


Cost of a bowl of soup at homeless shelter: $0.00

Having Michelle Obama serve you your soup: $0.00

Snapping a picture of a homeless person who is receiving a government funded meal while taking a picture of the first lady using his $500 BlackBerry cell phone: Priceless

Yup, Still Karl . . .

Mitt Romney On Barrack Obama's Tomfoolery

April 21, 2009, 4:00 a.m.

A Timid Advocate of Freedom
President Obama has failed his early foreign-policy tests.

By Mitt Romney

At last week's Summit of the Americas, President Obama acquiesced to a 50-minute attack on America as terroristic, expansionist, and interventionist from Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega. His response to Ortega's denunciation of our effort to free Cuba from Castro's dictatorship was that he shouldn't be blamed "for things that happened when I was three months old." Blamed? Hundreds of men, including Americans, bravely fought and died for Cuba's freedom, heeding the call from newly elected president John F. Kennedy. But last week, even as American soldiers sacrificed blood in Afghanistan and Iraq to defend liberty, President Obama shrank from defending liberty here in the Americas.

In his first press interview as president, he confessed to Arabic television that America had "dictated" to other nations. No, Mr. President, America has fought to free other nations from dictators. And in Strasbourg, the president further claimed that America has "showed arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive." London's Daily Telegraph observed that President Obama "went further than any United States president in history in criticizing his own country's action while standing on foreign soil." Of course, it was not just the Daily Telegraph that was listening: People around the world who yearn for freedom, who count on America's resolve and support, heard him as well. He was heard in China, in Tibet, in Sudan, in Burma, and, yes, in Cuba.

The words spoken by the leader of the free world can expand the frontiers of freedom or shrink them. When Ronald Reagan called on Gorbachev to "Tear down this wall", a surge of confidence rose that would ultimately breach the bounds of the evil empire. It was the same confidence that had been ignited decades earlier when John F. Kennedy declared to a people surrounded by Communism that they were not alone. "We are all Berliners," he said, because "freedom is indivisible, and when one man is enslaved, all are not free." Franklin Delano Roosevelt's confident commitment, spoken as he led us into the war that would free millions in Europe, inspired not only Americans but freedom fighters around the globe: "The American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory." Such words of solidarity, of confidence, and of unwavering conviction that America is indeed "the last best hope on earth" are what freedom's friends would have expected to hear from our president when our nation was slandered. Instead he offered silence, smiles, and a handshake.

Even more troubling than what he has or has not said is what he has not done. Kim Jong Il launched a long-range missile on the very day President Obama addressed the world about the peril of nuclear proliferation. As one of the world's most oppressive and tyrannical regimes is on the brink of securing the "game changing" capability to reach American shores with a nuclear weapon, the president shrinks from action: no seizure of North Korean funds, no severance of banking access, no blockade.

Not to be outdone by Kim Jong Il, President Ahmadinejad announced that his nation has successfully mastered every step necessary to enrich uranium, violating the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty it has signed. So, like North Korea, Iran will have changed the world's equation for peace and security: It will be capable of devastating Europe and America, and of annihilating Israel. And as with North Korea, the Obama administration chooses inaction - no new severe sanctions, no hint of military options. Ahmadinejad can act with confidence that the forceful options once on our proverbial table have been shelved.

Vice President Biden was right that the new president would be tested early in his administration. What the world learned was not good news for freedom and democracy. The leader of the free world has been a timid advocate of freedom at best. And bold action to blunt the advances of tyrants has been wholly lacking. We are still very early in the Obama years - the president will have ample opportunity to defend America and freedom, and to deter nuclear brinkmanship. I am hoping for change.

and also at the National Review Online:

I'm not sure how long those links will stay up, so have posted the whole article. If it shouldn't be posted here, it will be removed without comment. Stay tuned...

So, let's consider our freedoms by remembering this quote by Benjamin Franklin:

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."

Which is why me and mine like to "cling to our guns and religion" like The Annointed One said during the campaign.

And yes, I'm still Karl
