Obama Recap

Just because I took a little bit of down time away from updating for a few days doesn't mean I was remiss from taking notes and paying attention.

Mrs. Obama And Her Personal Fitness Trainer:

We learned in an 8,487* word story
published in The New Yorker, (8,487 words that summed up that the Obama's are better' 'en Jeebus), that Mrs. Barack Obama believes that her country is a divided country and we we are "downright mean."

    ...we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” [she said]. (I wonder if she places any blame on the Left, the Haters, the Code Pinkers, the ELF'ers, the eco-terrorists, the Military Haters - I wonder if they are partially responsible for our being "divided" and "downright mean," in Mrs. O's mind? - Drake)

The story also noted their full-time housekeeper (hmmm, wonder if that person has health care...hmmm), and that Mrs. Obama has her own personal trainer who she "tries" to see four days a week:

    The Obamas employ a full-time housekeeper, and Michelle tries to see a personal trainer four times a week, (but they do not have a nanny.)

Oh, the slings and arrows if Mrs. Obama were a Republican. Oh, how the blood-lust attacks would take on unprecedented viciousness if she were white, a Republican, had a full-time housekeeper and saw a personal fitness trainer four times a week. She would be called "out of touch" with working families. But, she's the wife of the Obamapalooza guy, so she gets a Free Pass.

Obama's Magic 8 And Only 8-Ball Questions:

Barack Hussein Obama Ted Kennedy's Poodle was so angry, he decided to
end a press conference after only 8 questions.

    An exasperated Barack Obama scurried away Monday from the toughest news conference of his campaign, telling reporters who kept shouting questions that he'd spent enough time on the grill.

    "Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions," Obama, looking surprised, told shouting reporters as he fled the room.

He's going to negotiate with worldwide dictators and despots, but he can only handle eight questions from the mean, old, nasty Liberal-friendly press.


That's Rezko in the center.

The trial of Antoin (Tony) Rezko, born in Syria, began this past week. Rezko was indicted for extortion of businesses planning to do business with the Illinois Teachers Retirement Systems Board, and the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board.

Rezko's wife purchased adjoining property on the same day that Obama bough his house in 2005 for $300,000 below the asking price. No one has yet formally charged Obama with any wrongdoing, but when was the last time you purchased real estate for $300,000 below the asking price?

Rezko has been a major campaign fundraiser for Obama and Illinois Democrat Governor Rod Blagojevich. Rezko is accused of the mastermind of a $7 million fraud scheme.

Patrick Fitzgerald is the U.S. Attorney prosecuting the Rezko case. You remember Fitzgerald, don't you? The Lefties mentioned his name in every other breath that they spoke when he was prosecuting the Scooter Libby case. Now, the Left would like everyone to ignore the Rezko trial and the name of the prosecutor.

Who knows what, if anything, may be discovered or uncovered that ties Rezko to Obama during the course of the trial?

We know how Democrats would be portraying this event if Obama were a Republican. His run for the White House would be taken down with endless and countless innuendo and smears by the Left until he faded away and chalk up another Republican ousted by a blow to the kneecaps - yep - this is how the Left would react.

Obama Swings And Misses On Rockefeller Iraq War Vote:

Obama totally got it wrong on Jay Rockefeller's vote on the Iraq War.

Obama, speaking about Rockefeller, said:

    "Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a fellow Democrat from neighboring West Virginia, had read the intelligence estimate as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee and had voted against the war resolution."

In that October 2002 vote, Rockefeller clearly voted FOR using Military force against Iraq.

So much for The Poodle getting his facts right.

You know, back in year 2000 when Candidate Bush got things like this wrong, the Left called him "stupid."

I guess applying that same standard to Obama, the only correct conclusion to reach is that Obama is stupid.

Hillary Clinton Derails The Obamapalooza Love Train In Ohio and Texas:

Hillary Clinton managed to derail The Poodle's campaign mojo. It was a sudden slap to his momentum. His supporters reacted by becoming even more defiant and mean, refusing to accept any criticism of their candidate, remaining in deep denial that The Poodle has faults.

Clearly Obama was visibly irritated, upset and short of patience - if you watched any coverage of him after losing Ohio and Texas.

Obama Staffers Resign and Cause Controversy:

Obama's key foreign policy aide
Samantha Power resigned from the campaign after calling Hillary Clinton "a monster."

Obama's criticism of NAFTA was, "more about political positioning that a clear articulation of policy plans," according to the Obama spinners.

Barack Obama’s senior economic adviser Austan Goolsbee was reported to have told the Canadian government that Obama's criticism of NAFTA is more about political positioning than clear articulation of policy plans."

When Obama was put on the defensive, he did what every Liberal does, he blamed someone else. In this case, he blamed Canada. Yes, he blamed our largest trading partner. Such a smooth negotiator this Poodle is, huh?

Better yet, the Obama campaign is trying to spin the story that what happened didn't happen and that Austan Goolsbee's words were misinterpreted by the Canadians. It was a political retraction, done by Canada - an ally - doing what a good ally does.

To be fair, and I saved this to mention last for a reason, Rezko also fund raised for George W. Bush. You can bet that if Obama had never been associated with Rezko that the Left would be harping about yet another businessman on trial who is tied to Bush.
