It's a Leftist Dressed Up as a Centrist Thing

Dear America,

so yesterday, Neal Cavuto was interviewing the former governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson, when they took part of an exchange characterizing a deeply rooted misconception about the current president.  Bill claimed Obama is a centrist; to which Neal replied something to the effect of, 'well, if he's a centrist, I'm Jack LaLanne'.  classic Neal ...

...and isn't it just amazing how intelligent people can still get Obama entirely wrong.  And on that note, Michelle's speech from last night makes a leftist president seem downright all-American. [I must say -- she looked beautiful! and performed an outstanding speech.]

But without any further adieu, let's begin with highlights of moments of pure bull being dished out by the bull-shull:

"Like so many American families, our families weren't asking for much.

They didn't begrudge anyone else's success or care that others had much more than they did...in fact, they admired it.

They simply believed in that fundamental American promise that, even if you don't start out with much, if you work hard and do what you're supposed to do, then you should be able to build a decent life for yourself and an even better life for your kids and grandkids..."
"...We learned about dignity and decency – that how hard you work matters more than how much you make…that helping others means more than just getting ahead yourself.

We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters…that you don't take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules…and success doesn't count unless you earn it fair and square."   
wow.  just listen to her!  Has she not paid attention to her own husband's narrative against the rich, and specifically angling against Romney?  "Success doesn't count unless you earn it fair and square."  Exactly.  So what the hell, Michelle?   Your party seems stuck on playing a broken record claiming that the rich must pay even more for those who don't DO, for those who don't 'earn it fair and square' as you heard it told to you.  Nice try.   And just what admiration of other people's success do you speak of?  Just Oprah's?
With moments of pure honesty:

"Well, today, after so many struggles and triumphs and moments that have tested my husband in ways I never could have imagined, I have seen firsthand that being president doesn't change who you are – it reveals who you are."   indeed.

Back to moments of pure bull:

"But at the end of the day, when it comes time to make that decision, as President, all you have to guide you are your values, and your vision, and the life experiences that make you who you are.

So when it comes to rebuilding our economy, Barack is thinking about folks like my dad and like his grandmother. He's thinking about the pride that comes from a hard day's work"

Back to some honesty:

"When it comes to the health of our families, Barack refused to listen to all those folks who told him to leave health reform for another day, another president." 

["refused to listen" -- got that right -- especially after the fact, when 66% of the American people have decided from their life experiences that they want the 'health care reform bill' totally repealed or replaced.]

then quickly back to bull:

"He didn't care whether it was the easy thing to do politically – that's not how he was raised – he cared that it was the right thing to do."
Everything is political for this president.  Absolutely everything.

back to a wee bit of honesty:

"He did it because he believes that here in America, our grandparents should be able to afford their medicine…our kids should be able to see a doctor when they're sick…and no one in this country should ever go broke because of an accident or illness."

 yaddi yaddi yadda -- back to a flash of bull:

"So in the end, for Barack, these issues aren't political – they're personal."
Then  she made an absolute and honest admission:

"Barack knows the American Dream because he's lived it… "

And then immediately shifting the focus on government, she makes it perfectly clear that the State knows better of how to distribute the wealth and further opportunity for all:

"And he believes that when you've worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity…you do not slam it shut behind you…you reach back, and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed..."

"...So when people ask me whether being in the White House has changed my husband, I can honestly say that when it comes to his character, and his convictions, and his heart, Barack Obama is still the same man I fell in love with all those years ago"

indeed indeed.  At least she is being honest, right.

Warning:  long string of bull coming on strong:

"I love that we can trust Barack to do what he says he's going to do, even when it's hard – especially when it's hard.     [like he did when he said he would go "line by line and veto big government spending, cut the deficit in half before the end of his first term, and reduce the national debt, and focus on energy independence with an "all of the above" policy, oh and close Gitmo...just to name five things]

I love that for Barack, there is no such thing as "us" and "them" – he doesn't care whether you're a Democrat, a Republican, or none of the above…he knows that we all love our country…and he's always ready to listen to good ideas…he's always looking for the very best in everyone he meets.

And I love that even in the toughest moments, when we're all sweating it – when we're worried that the bill won't pass, and it seems like all is lost – Barack never lets himself get distracted by the chatter and the noise."

that's a good one -- "no such thing as 'us' or 'them' -- he doesn't care whether you're a Democrat or a Republican...."   Are you kidding me?  This president has made it the center piece of his platform to ridicule the opinion and ideals of the other side; his vice president claims the other side wants to put black people back in chains....unfukeenbelievable really, excuse my french.

and that bit about Barack "never lets himself get distracted by chatter and the noise."  seriously?  This guy pays attention to every word uttered about him, his policies, the number of times he plays golf, to even the White House beer recipe.  How about this article from The New York Times...a powerful expose about our president's competitive spirit....

but never mind, let's get back to Michelle's  honest assessment of things:

"And he reminds me that we are playing a long game here…and that change is hard, and change is slow, and it never happens all at once.

But eventually we get there, we always do." 

[little nudge here, little nudge there...God help us; again, at the risk of repeating myself, at least she is being honest with us.]

All pure warm up for a big bull-shull of a finish:

"Because today, I know from experience that if I truly want to leave a better world for my daughters, and all our sons and daughters…if we want to give all our children a foundation for their dreams and opportunities worthy of their promise…if we want to give them that sense of limitless possibility – that belief that here in America, there is always something better out there if you're willing to work for it…then we must work like never before…and we must once again come together and stand together for the man we can trust to keep moving this great country forward…my husband, our President, President Barack Obama."

Why is this considered bull, pray tell?  -- because she said THIS last time around:

The goal for this administration is full-on FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION.  The left and right speak in two entirely different languages.   Is he a centrist?  Not even close.

To read the entire piece of propaganda, go here.

For the last word on Hope and Change, take two, she says:

"Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America." 

Which is funny, given that the Democratic Party Platform removes any mention of the word God.

And totally unrelated:  how about that fair and balanced coverage by the mainstream media of both conventions....let's not even go there, for it's like comparing apples and oranges, red and blue, elephants and donkeys.

Can't wait for Biden.

Make it a Good Day, G

There is just so much going on right now; hard to cover it all.

But this is fascinating:  The president gives himself an "incomplete" on the economy.  I guess because he has yet to destroy the dollar.  But how stunning is he -- after monetary easing by the Fed, after debt ceiling increases, after adding a new expensive entitlement for health care, after bailing out the car industry, after 'investing' nearly a trillion dollars in a stimulus package for shovel-ready jobs, after 'investing' in green energy, after regulating Wall Street, after promoting the Occupiers, after an unemployment rate of over 8% nearly his entire first term, after cash-for-clunkers, after not sticking to his list of promises to cut government waste and fraud and cut deficit by half -- he can't even make a fair assessment of what he has done to date.

IF you have more time:  here is the transcript from his acceptance speech last time around.
Here's one good line:  "If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things."
