From an observer’s point of view, it looks pretty good

I have to say that over the past few weeks I have been silently observing through the news wires, watching in not-so-subtle interest as the States appears to be righting (no pun intended) itself. Allow me to list some of the points that I have been following:

1. Apparently there was some crazy earthquake activity down in the Carribean recently that took a country that was as corrupt as the day is long, or much like here in Nigeria, and basically wiped out civilization as they knew it, and Obama has fucked himself sideways in the way that he has handled the aid action. Yeah, a shitload of people died (notable fact: more died in the Tsunami of 2004. Just thought you would like to know that) but the eyes are on a certain President and his direction when it comes to aiding these people. A couple of articles, one from Slate even!, had the audacity of hope to rake how the operations down there are being handled. I would have said “co-ordinated”, but that would be a bold faced lie to call it such.

From what can be gathered on the actions of the military forces down there the situation is being treated much like some of the operations in Iraq and not like some of the various other ones we have performed in supplying aid (notable fact: whereas Obama has pledged 100 mil for this assist move, Bush pledged 350 mil for the tsunami aid and was referred to as being “miserly”)… and Obama is being raked through the COALS over this. No blame to the military, no blame to the evil mind-controlling conservatives…. the target has been painted solely on Teh One.

-Love it.

This leads into my next point….

2. In one of the bluest states in the Union a conservative was elected by a pretty decent margin to Congress. I mean come on, this is one of those states that you just immediately assume is so dyed-in-the-wool blue that it is almost black in color. They have universal health care and an enormous tax burden on the upper middle class for Christ’s sake!!! You had a Dem Attorney General that was running who had the support of the Kennedys, the DNC, and even the fucking President, and they STILL could not pull off a win for themselves!!! Also, when beaten by to be honest a pretty likable guy that had my support from the word “vet”, all they can do is blame the campaign and NOT that they have so completely blown it with their base that they couldn’t even win Kennedy’s old seat! What the fuck is next, Chicago going to elect a white mayor?!?!?!?

-Cats and dogs, living together… MASS HYSTERIA.

Oh, and  can’t forget…

3. The death throes of the Universal Health Bill can be heard all the way to fucking MARS, and the Martians are trying to get some sleep so KILL IT WITH FIRE ALREADY AND GET IT OVER WITH. Out of all of the data that I have viewed on the recent opinions on this bill is that even the dems are saying that it was too far-reaching in what they were attempting to do, and that through the very act of trying to ram this floating pile whale feces into law was GASP! not actually a good idea! Who’d of thunk it?

Oh, wait, EVERY SINGLE POLL THAT WAS EVER TAKEN REGARDING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE’S OPINION OF IT.

-Apparently the enlightened few dems who actually are paying attention to their constituents are also realizing that oh shit, this year is an election year and that they might actually not be re-elected due to their support of a bill that even a dog would piss on. I was always under the impression that representatives did just that, represent their specific electorate, but who am I to assume some simple shit like that? Hopefully the Mass. election was a strong wake-up call for these people to actually start doing the job that they were elected to do…. Wait. No, I actually hope that these numpties don’t listen and self-destruct. I hope that they actually are elected out of office by such a large margin that they are embarrassed to even call themselves politicians, have to go into protective custody and disappear off of the face of the planet.

In short…. This is a good time to be an American, because the people are speaking loud and clear and the politicians that don’t listen are going to take it in the ass.

-With a cactus dick.

-And no lube this time.

America.

Fuck yeah.

    On the “State of the Union” presidential address (from http://www.politico.com)

    House Minority Whip Eric Cantor says he hopes President Barack Obama will avoid during a visit Friday to a House GOP retreat in Baltimore “the kind of rhetoric and lecturing that occurred in the State of the Union.”

    Obama told Republicans in his address Wednesday night that “saying ‘no’ to everything may be good short-term politics, but it’s not leadership” and that they share in “the responsibility to govern.” Stepping up his own efforts at bipartisanship, he said he plans “monthly meetings with both Democratic and Republican leadership.”

    Cantor, the No. 2 House GOP leader, said he “appreciated his offer” but said Obama has made calls for bipartisanship before.

    “There are words and promises, and there is delivery,” Cantor, 46, said at his Capitol Hill office in an interview for a POLITICO video series,“Inside Obama’s Washington.” “There’s not been much action put behind those words over the last year. I’m hoping when he comes to our retreat that we’ll hear a different President Obama and, frankly, a willingness to say, ‘OK, I understand my agenda may not be what the majority of this country wants. Let’s work together.’”

    Republicans unanimously opposed last year’s stimulus bill, which Cantor argues has “failed miserably” at job creation. Now, he says House Republicans will oppose the new jobs bill Obama endorsed in Wednesday night’s speech.

    “We’ve already seen his method and the majority’s method of trying to generate jobs — that’s the stimulus bill that was passed last year,” Cantor said. “Now we know the total is exceeding $800 billion. Now the proposal is yet again another $150 billion before we start to think about a freeze. But $150 billion spent on more government programs? … Come on. There is a government that can help, and the government can also hurt.”

    Cantor claimed that the administration “has demonstrated an arrogance in ignoring public opinion.”

    “I felt like he was admonishing Congress and certainly lecturing Republicans,” Cantor said, “accusing us of being an obstructionist party, when what it is we’re about is trying to focus on the issue, which is control the spending and let’s go about creating an environment for jobs. … [The] president says he’s going to be open to discussion. We’re all about going and participating with him.”

    Cantor said congressional Democratic leaders are no better. “When they came back to Washington [after the Massachusetts Senate loss], there were a lot of cries publicly, ‘Oh, we need to work together,’” he said. “Not one call from any Democratic leader. Not one visit by any Democratic leader in the House to any of the Republican leaders.”

    Continuing his critique of the speech, Cantor said: “There was a lot of blame game last night, and I’m the first one to say there’s a lot of blame to go around. We can all accept some of it. But, as we’ve seen over the last several months, the people in this country are very dissatisfied with the direction that this administration is taking this country. And what we heard last night … was: ‘We’re going to continue with this agenda. In fact, we’re going to double-down on health care.’ ”

    Cantor said that while hosting Obama, Republicans will “remind him again: We’re not voting ‘no’ for political expediency — we’ve got our principles, and we’re going to stand up and defend those.”

    Enough said.
