Obama: The Grinch that won’t give Christmas presents to his own children

“Unlike almost all Americans—including atheists—the Obamas do not give their children Christmas gifts. We know this because Barack bragged about this last year to People magazine. So it should come as no big surprise that he and his wife would like to neuter Christmas in the White House. That’s their natural step—to ban the public display of Christian symbols. Have any doubts? Last April, Georgetown University was ordered to put a drape over the name of Jesus as a condition of the president speaking there.

If the Obamas want to deprive their children of celebrating Christmas, that is their business. It is the business of the public to hold them accountable for the way they celebrate Christmas in the White House. We know one thing for sure: no other administration ever  entertained internal discussions on whether to display a nativity scene in the White  House.”

Republicans and Democrats
December 01st, 2009 | 9:02am

I have tended to vote for Republican candidates, not with any enthusiasm, but because the Democrats have become so toxic. The once “party of the working man” became a collection of race pimps, militant feminists, militant gays, socialists and other assorted freaks. I could not seriously consider voting for Democrats because they had become a carnival side show.

The Republicans under Reagan, were pro life, pro economic opportunity and for a strong national defense [note that a strong national defense and continuous war are not the same thing]. The GOP however, under W Bush became a party that favored corrupt, greedy corporate crooks, constant war, and expansion of Federal Power [No Child Left Behind, expand the “war on drugs”, etc]. W Bush screwed up so very badly, that the toxic Democrats regained both Houses of Congress in 2006, and the White House in 2009.

I wish we had a third party which resembled the platform of Ron Paul, unfortunately, the two major parties have stacked the deck against third parties, so that we are forced to choose between bad and worse. Neither party truly represents us any more. Where do we go from here?

Tom Roeser on “the Squid” – Obama, Daley, and “The Chicago Way”

“The Chicago Way”-a method of bamboozling and backstabbing-is leading to disillusionment by significant portions of the Left with Barack Obama, the man it hailed as supposedly the most inspiring Democrat since Bobby Kennedy …

“A critical mass of influential people who once held big hopes for [Obama’s] presidency [have begun] to wonder whether they had misjudged the man,” she wrote. She added this:

“The Craig embarrassment gives these people a new reason… to conclude that he (Obama) wasn’t the person of integrity or even classiness they had thought, and, more fundamentally, that his ability to move people and actually lead… is not what had been promised in the campaign.”

Obama “Credibility Gap” on health care getting wider



President Obama went on BlogTalkRadio yesterday to address health care reform. At one point he told the left-wing religious audience, “You’ve heard that this is all going to mean government funding of abortion. Not true.”

Catholic League president Bill Donohue replied as follows:

On July 17, the House Committee on Ways and Means approved the America’s Health Choices Act (H.R. 3200). In the course of the debate, it considered the following amendment, sponsored by Rep. Eric Cantor:

No funds authorized under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) may be used to pay for an abortion or to cover any part of the costs of any health plan that includes coverage of abortion, except in the case where a woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness that would, as certified by a physician, place the woman in danger of death unless an abortion is performed, including a life-endangering physical condition caused by or arising from the pregnancy itself, or unless the pregnancy is the result of an act of forcible rape or incest.

In other words, the amendment barred “government funding of abortion.” It failed: 19 voted for it and 22 voted against it.

Obama said yesterday that there is “a lot of misinformation” about this issue. So which is it? Was he lying when he said there would be no government funding of abortion? Or was he just misinformed? If it’s the latter, then someone needs to get him up to speed real fast. If it’s the former, then we have the makings of an ethical crisis in the White House.
