Obama doesn’t help her any, he’s such a narcissist he can’t stay out of the picture. He’s like his “diplomat,” he has to tell you when he’s doing something sneaky out of the headlines. He has to get credit for everything. Here he goeson Al Sharpton’s radio show and announces, yeh, those redstate Dem candidates are lying about not supporting him but he doessn’t mind. When they win, they’ll be his. Thanks, Obama. That’s just what most of us think about Alison Grimes. She’s taking money you made for the Dems by your profligate fund-raising but somehow she won’t owe you or the Dems anything. Meanwhile she spends time whining about money – less money, actually – going to Mitch to beat her. She’s not even elected but she’s still  full of dishonesty and hypocrisy.

BTW, what’s the POTUS hanging out with that fraud and race-baiter Al Sharpton? That’s disturbing. Audio at both links.  http://hotair.com/archives/2014/10/20/obama-hey-all-these-red-state-democrats-running-away-from-me-are-strong-supporters-who-vote-with-me/ and http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2014/10/116962.php

So, this isn’t about my feelings being hurt. These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. And I tell them, I said, you know what, you do what you need to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn up.

Obama? Heck Alison can’t even deny she’d vote for Harry Reid as Majority Leader if she’s elected. Ugh. http://weaselzippers.us/202552-alison-lundergan-grimes-refuses-to-say-if-she-would-vote-for-harry-reid-to-lead-senate-dems/

Obama, of course, had obliged us by formerly affirming that while his name isn’t on the ballots, it sure is his policies on the ballot, thus smashing the denials of redstate Dems. But Jonah Goldberg notes that Alison and other redstate Dems may be Hillary Clinton Dems but they’re sure not Bill Clinton Dems because Hillary’s politics are much more in line with Obama’s politics than Bill’s, reflecting not only her more radical politics but the movement of the Democratic Party to the left. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/390524/return-clinton-democrats-not-really-jonah-goldberg

Alison Lundergan Grimes is betting the farm on the popularity of the Clintons. Bill won both presidential races in Kentucky – the last Democrat to do so – and Hillary soundly defeated Obama in the 2008 primaries but I think their popularity, especially Hillary’s, is overrated. I think much of her success here in 2008 was due to a backlash against the anti-coalObama remarks and his conversation of bitter clingers. Obama calculated -unfortunately, correctly – that he could win w/o coal-producing redstate votes of Kentucky but Alison can’t afford that luxury. She needs all the votes she can get. I still don’t think she will win but the Dems have more money than the GOP, the Clintons are everywhere, KY has more registered Dems than Repubs, the MSM here are Democratic and Mitch isn’t very exciting. That may turn out to be his strong suit, there’s never been any scandal with Mitch, he’s viewed as a centrist, nobody much likes him but he’s hard to hate, his stances are pretty well-known – he’s actually been criticized in the past for his support of the coal industry by greenies, and best of all, nobody thinks he’s a toadie for the Clintons or Obama. In fact, we believe he dislikes Obama as much as we do.

Wonder if the Ferguson protests, pushed by lefties/communists/socialists, liberal media, and opportunistic politicians, have opened any eyes? Bunch of thugs intent on breaking the law for political gain or personal looting. The MSM don’t like to admit that their race-baiting, due to either liberal ideology sympathy or ratings boosts, may actually be harming this country, St Louis and blacks in general. When any segment of the population, whether good ole boy politicians or hard-partying sons of the wealthy or young black men, become unaccountable for their misdeeds, only destruction will result in the long term. In the short term, of course, some see benefit, whether race-baiters making money or politicians stoking their base or federal money tossed in to rebuild/reward. The very best results for the black community would be real free market jobs, and a healing for families that doesn’t reward single mothers raising multiple kids with different fathers to score welfare $$, a problem in poor communities of every race. LBJ, and politicians since then, have basically destroyed black families and poor families in general. It’s here in Appalachia, too, and growing.

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/08/guardian-mike-browns-shooting-jim-crow-lynchings-have-too-much-in-common/ This is idiocy but when the Obama administration and liberal media/politicians plus groups such as NAACP, use racial hyperbole on a constant basis, what can you expect from the foreign media. The Guardian, of course, is a super-liberal UK newspaper and they’re happy to stoke liberal talking points from here, just as they do over there.

Liberals used to be Jewish-friendly and condemn ultra-right anti-Semitism, and Jews were the first supporters of civil rights and MLK but both blacks and the left are distinctly pro-Palestinian, pro-Muslim and anti-Israel, anti-Jew. The Ferguson protests have an ugly aura of anti-Semitism. Some of this is because the Ferguson crowd is increasingly lefty/Occupy Movement leaders, which always had that same aura, often ignored by the MSM. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/08/leftists-turn-ferguson-into-jew-hating-pro-hamas-movement/

No words needed. A funny experience, LOL http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/10/08/nba-player-under-fire-for-lol-selfie-at-berlin-holocaust-museum/selfie-1

As the Obama/Holder administration obsesses over Islamophobia and white-on-black crimes, both of which are miniscule in this country, black-on-white and Islamic hate toward Christians and Jews spike. http://www.wthr.com/story/26416131/2014/08/31/3-columbus-churches-vandalized-with-graffiti-overnight

Donna Brazile is Vice Chair of the DNC and managed Al Gore’s 2000 campaign. She’s  a black lesbian liberal so you can well imagine  all the racist slurs she gets away with since she throws them at Republicans. This is typical. In 2008, as a paid “neutral ” analyst for CNN, she claimed there would be riots in the street by blacks if Hillary Clinton won the Dem primary instead of Obama. Now, of course, she claims the GOP would be sexist for opposing Hillary. Looks as though her ultimate insult is still “hillbillies.” http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2014/09/dems-say-only-hillbillies-want-a-strategy.php

    I am just outraged that Obama hasn’t pasted together an “strategy” to satisfy the craven political ravings of hillbillies yet.

Allergies and the drugs to treat them. I’m in a fog and the weather and the news reflect my feelings. We are at, or near, that indefinable moment when everyone except political hacks or die hard stalwarts realize that a presidency is falling apart and the nation is on a downward trend. It’s coming very fast now for Obama, to the shock of a compliant MSM who tried to prop him up since early 2008 and to the shock of his young and black base who voted for him because of identity politics and little else. I’ve watched the end of quite a few administrations and they end much like human death. Some quietly come to a natural halt, like Eisenhower’s, some occur after an exhausting chronic disease, like Nixon’s, some abruptly end in an unnatural tragedy like Kennedy’s, some end in a puzzle as if we’re not quite sure we did the right thing such as George H W Bush or Gerald Ford’s [no we didn’t do the right thing in kicking out Ford for Carter], some end in a wild tumult of change, such as George W Bush’s or LBJ’s. The funny thing is, liberal agitation led to that national “feeling” that change was needed in both LBJ’s and W’s.

What’s different now is that the MSM tried to, and still are in most cases, trying to protect Obama from  a national “feeling” that change is needed. My biggest objection to Obama has always been that the MSM elected him, and did so by sheltering him in a uniquely un-American manner. The MSM certainly hated Nixon from the beginning and certainly sheltered Kennedy but that was primarily after his election, they sheltered President Kennedy but their role in electing him president wasn’t as pervasive as in electing Obama, who was totally unvetted and protected. The MSM wasn’t as overwhelmingly liberal and there weren’t as many conglomerates.  We knew squat about Obama in 2008 and don’t know a lot now but we’ve discovered some truths on our own, in spite of the MSM, not because of them. Today’s blogs of all sizes are the small independent newspapers/magazines/newsletters, diners, and  radio/tv stations of yesterday.

ISIS has vids of their  air force; they’re darn proud of their military, too bad Obama is ashamed of ours and is cutting it way back. Obama wants to use ours as a force for good, such as abruptly sending them into deadly West Africa without planning and without complete hazmat protection, which may or may not be needed. Guess none of his crony donors send their kids into the military so he’s not worried. http://hotair.com/archives/2014/10/17/good-news-isis-is-training-an-air-force/

Lefty hypocrisy. They’re not battling for $15 minimum wage, they’re out to punish big companies like McDonalds and Walmart by making them pay $15, thus weakening them even further in a global economy. Never forget, their real goal is the end of capitalism , so they can further socialism. http://thepunditpress.com/2014/10/16/seattle-socialist-group-pushing-20hr-min-wage-offers-13hr-for-web-developer/

You certainly won’t see this Pew study on the MSM: http://cfif.org/v/index.php/commentary/54-state-of-affairs/2339-republicans-more-informed-than-democrats-according-to-pew-research

Everything should be free! All you have to do is raise taxes. Again, see it for what it is, an attack on capitalism to push socialism. It’s working so well in France. http://www.nationalreview.com/phi-beta-cons/389833/having-students-pay-college-socially-unjust-george-leef

Yale University has a well-deserved reputation for anti-Semitism and pushing a pro-Islam, pro-Palestinian agenda. Lots of money fro Arabs plus a lefty agenda and lefty studies. http://collegeinsurrection.com/2014/08/yale-chaplain-blames-jews-for-anti-Semitism/

Unfortunately, Obama sympathetic to Iran and simultaneously thinks we shouldn’t be stronger than any other country http://pjmedia.com/spengler/2014/08/29/the-trouble-is-that-obama-does-have-a-strategy/

Jindal is quiet but devastating. Here he presents President Obama’s management style in 4 short Tweets. You know it’s dead-on hit the moment you read it. h/t to Instapundit, from whom I shamelessly stole this. http:/pjmedia.com/instapundit  As Instapundit author Glenn Reynolds notes, we’re apparently in Stage 2. Obama is  dependably formulaic.



Stage 1 of Obama Crisis Management: Don’t worry, I got this.

Well this is just – snicker – mean

Hey when the President insults us with a political hack for an “Ebola Czar” then he can expect insults from the public. A celebrity president whose whole career is based on controlling the message, not on any achievement, will naturally assume that controlling the Ebola message will help his political career. Sadly, it will continue to work with some, while it never did work for those of us who asked questions and looked deeper at the man.
