Obama Despair Syndrome, ODS2

March 5, 2009

Comrades, er…. No! I’m not ready to go there yet.  Umm, listen folks, I’ve had a hard time the last few days trying to isolate the idea I wanted to post about–I finally decided that I’d try to squash all the latest bull hockey together, so I’ll try.

During the Bush years the LEFT, especially the FarLEFT, suffered from BDS, Bush Derangement Syndrome. The mere mention of his name, glimpse of his face or of him walking or the whisper of his voice, most specifically his wordings of speech, brought about foaming mouths, apoplectic jerking of limbs and complete spinning of heads until they popped off whereupon it would continue to spin like a top on the floor  it’s eyes bugged out with spittle and snot spraying outward infecting others nearby.

As we came to understand that HRO (His Royal Obamaness), The ONE, The Messiah, Dear Leader was not only going to win the Demon-crat nomination for President, but then the election itself, ODS, Obama Derangement Syndrome,  [see fellow WP blogger’s take, altho I have already written about it in another world, linked below: Coming Soon… Obama Derangement Syndrome] set in and rabid Conservatives  began their own version of what had afflicted TheLEFT for eight years with similar disastrous results. They claim he’s not a TRUE born American, that he’s Muslim, that this & that, and waste so much time and effort trying to stop him from taking office or, even now, trying to have him impeached, etc. instead of working to make our representatives stand up to all the Path to Socialism bills, policies and executive orders.

I came to realize since I posted last that I am beginning to suffer from OSD2, Obama DESPAIR Syndrome. Everyday when opens his mouth to say things like, “there are no earmarks!” “The Markets downturn has nothing to do with what we’re doing!” etc. my stomach shrinks and turns over, my head starts to hurt and my will to live loses just another notch on my POM, Pragmatic Optimism Meter.

Responsibility, Mo’Money & Bigger Government; Yada, Yada, Blah, Blah, Blah

February 25, 2009

Trying. To. Keep. Head. From. Exploding!

I’m watching my tape of Dear Leader’s State of Calamity Speech, Governor Bobby (the futrue hope of the Republican Party???) Jindal’s stilted, boring and ineffectual rebuttal and the forever dissection by the Talking Heads (not the eclectic 70s, 80s,90s band) and vapid politicians from last night.

Holy Crap!

There are many much more qualified political commenters all over the web (click any of the Links in my side panel) than me, so I’m going to disappoint you [sarc] and decline boring you with details from the speech or the continuing empty bullshit from The ONE. I will say this again, Holy Crap. How the hell is any of this going to get paid for? He’s going to quadruple the deficit and double the government as a whole.  The expansions for energy alternatives, education & health care are insane and unrealistic–again, please look to others for the nitty-gritty for those analysiseseses (geez, what is the plural of analysis?).

Here’s what I saw:

Her Majesty, the Queen, Nancy Pelosi portraying one of two things–a jack-in-the-box or a Jr. high School cheerleader.  And if I ever have to spend another hour of my life looking at her Mortimor Snerd (who’s old enough out there to remember that reference? See Below) smirk I will have to kill myself.

Mortimer Snerd by danielhandal.

I also study how the audience claps, from hands flap-slapping together–all vary in enthusiasm and speed from the one clap a second to the wing beat velocity of an African Swallow; and in the same vein of reference (NodNodWinkWink) there are also the cupped-handed coconut clappers; the golf claps to the clapping of one hand to the back of the other as they study the program; the the up/down Gore center-of-the-chest-clap (who teaches that one, where does one learn it? I suspect they all rode the short-yellow-school bus) and the “oh boy, goody, goody happy clap” (Pelosi) the hand straight up as in prayer and clapping as if a cupcake was being held out to her.

I also like when they pan the audience and see the outright boredom of the law-makers until enjoined to jump to theie feet by the aforementioned cheerleader above, but I shouldn’t point fingers, at least I could fast forward–they couldn’t.

Nyah, Nyah, We Told You So!

February 24, 2009

Throughout the Democrat Primaries and Election, we who espoused and ranted (ineffectually, I might add against the lustful Obamatrons and MSM) about who and what Barack Obama was were ridiculed, called racist and didn’t want change because we were neanderthals, mouth breathers, racists (again & again), fascists, and any inordinate amount of other disgusting and obscene descriptions as extensions and continuations of BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome), even though he was even running, including then, transference to SDS (Sara [Palin] Derangement Syndrome).

We who paid attention by watching FOXNews; listening to Conservative Talk Radio; read from LittleGreenFootballs, RightWingNews, TownHall, PajamasMedia, HotAir, GatewayPundit, et al; and blogged around the e-niverse knew exactly what we were going to get if BHO was elected–the most leftist and socialist administration in the history of the United States.

So, now, three & a half months from the election after which I, and others much higher in the public domain than I, said we HAD to give Obama a chance (of course we were slammed and ostracized for that from the right) and try to support him so the country didn’t fail, especially since we were told that he was pragmatic and more centrist than he looked on paper. Most of us also qualified that statement and wish with “until he proves different” and then all bets were off and we would shotu from the roof tops. I’m shouting now, is anyone listening? Of course, it’s too late to change things, but hey, I’m yelling my head off again, just as I did before he was elected.

Well, now one month since his Inaugural, HRO has proven we were right and now, we can say, Nyah, Nyah, We Told You SO!  We are already seeing the LEFT’s, Liberals, Socialists and Demon-crats 40 year Wish List passed under the auspices of an Emergency (as Rahm Emanuel stated, “Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.”) Under the Banking Crisis we will see the nationalizationof the Financial system and along with the Auto Bailout and the inclusion of the Card Check Law (or the “You’se Gonna Join da Union, arn’cha?” Law) the unlimited expansion of Unions–the UAW runs ads on the Socialist Party USA.

My wife and I almost break our fingers trying to hit the mute button on the remote every time HRO gets live or regurgitated reporting on TV. She told me last night, just as I’m sure most of us have thought frequently, “I am already sick of him (Obama, if you lost track), I can’t stand to hear his voice or see his face.”  We’re all there, but we knew with the MSM and just the fact that he’s President, he was going to have more coverage than anyone else in history. Hopefully, he’ll be just as covered when all of his plans fails and the country falls apart, but I won’t hold my breath.

Here are just two articles that express both of these feelings from myself, others and probably YOU:

Hurry, Pass the Spendulus Bill Then…

February 17, 2009

Okay, so we couldn’t wait to have the Spendulus Bill passed! Right? The United States was going to collapse if we didn’t get the thing through Congress and then the Senate on Friday. No time for anyone to read it–oh, yes, most of them knew the major items, but not what had been put back in at the last minute, not the still hidden items–they had to have it passed within 11 hours of printing at midnight.  Why?

Because Pelosi had to have time to crow about the passing before she and seven other from congress could be wheels-up by six from Andrews on a USAF jet to Europe to meet the Pope today.

Then, to get the senate side done they flew democrat Senator Sherrod Brown from Ohio where his mother had passed away and he had to wait until the end of her wake to come back and vote around midnight, and go back–the White House sent a plane and the Senate held the vote open. Would they have done that for the deciding vote of a Republican if it was to stop the bill?

And Then, Obama flies the family back to Chicago for Valentine’s Day–again, with all the hoopla, you’d think he’d have waited until the vote final in the Senate and have a big deal to do right on the spot. But, No, he takes AFOne to Chicago, spends the weekend out and about, and then returns to Washington yesterday, President’s Day to sign the bill, Right?

NO! He’s going to sign it in Denver TODAY at a solar panel plant to ensure we know he’s the Green One. So why fly back to Washington one day then back out to Denver and back the next? Seems like a whole lot of AvGas wasted and another 100s of tons of CO2–you know, the planet killer gas. I can only guess that it would save about half that gas and pollution had he gone to Denver from Chicago and then back to Washington today, but that means all those folks (including the TRINOS–Specter, Snow, Collins–I’m sure) hitching a ride to Denver today on AFOne to get a signing pen wouldn’t have gotten there or had to travel–gasp!–by commercial air or not gone at all. Yeah, right!

So, we are finally going to see the Partisan social-gluttonous Spendulus Bill signed today, FOUR frakking days after it was passed unread by those voting, certainly not posted so we the people could see it for 48 hours as Promised by Pelosi, and of such urgency that we could’ve all starved to death in the mean time from inaction to save us with 30 Million Marsh Mouse Stilulus!

 

UPDATE:  Oh, and then he’s going to Phoenix tomorrow for the Housing Plan that has nothing in the TARP or Spendulus Bill??!!  How inefficient is that for the Green One??!!  My head is going to explode!

So, let’s recap, shall we?  This weekend Chicago for vacation, back to Washington yesterday; today, Washington to Denver to Washington; and tomorrow, Washington to Phoenix back to Washington? Get on Google and figure those muiles out–what is he doing? Working on AF1 Frequent Flier Miles?? He’s going to need to replant all of Nevada in trees to offeset his carbon offset for this week alone!

Update: I.A. (547pm cst):  Okay, I was misinformed, The Green One has landed in Phoenix, so at least, someone had a brighter Idea than crisscrossing the US 3 times in 3 days.

UPDATE II:    From most recent eMail from NoStimulus.com

By the way, today when the President says this is a carefully drawn, fiscally responsible bill consider what is in the final legislation:

Billions in outright pork and wasteful spending:
$300 million for buying cars for federal bureaucrats;$3.7 billion for something called “green research” on military bases;$50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts; $2 billion for “neighborhood stabilization” to radical groups like ACORN;$1.3 billion for Amtrak; $10 million for”urban canals”(I’m not making this up); etc.

The Road to Government Run Health Care
$1.1 billion for “comparative effectiveness research” that will establish a federal government board to begin rationing health care by having bureaucrats deciding which medical treatments will be appropriate for which Americans.(Page 52 of final conference report)

Overturning the Historic Welfare Reform of 1996
$264 billion for direct welfare payments while overturning the historic welfare reform of 1996.The Pelos\Reid\Obama bill will reward states with federal welfare funds based on the number of people they put on their welfare rolls – a perverse incentive that will in effect give states “bonuses” for adding more people to welfare rolls AND work requirements are ignored in this legislation.

$53.6 billion for a “state stabilization fund” otherwise known as a slush fund
This massive infusion of our tax dollars is designed to alleviate the need for genuine budget reform and cutting at the state level.

So, when you hear folks saying this Pelosi\Reid\Obama “stimulus” bill was a “compromise” that cut waste to the bone while focusing only on “shovel ready” priorities, call them on it!

UPDATE III: IT’S  SIGNED @ 1:24 pm mst
