Obama Charitable Giving: Cheapness Take 3
The Obamas gave the least and much of what they did give was to their own church, the
Tax Prof Blog has the Obama Charitable giving.
The Right Hand Of God blog has a side-by-side comparison between the amounts donated to charity by President George W. and Laura Bush versus The Muslim and Michelle.
And MSNBC reports that the Cheneys donated "just under $6.87 million dollar to charity" AND...get this...the Cheney's paid $2,468,566 in taxes through withholding and estimated tax payments.
Uh, what's all this the Dems say about rich people not paying any taxes?
Bele Obama Tells Another Whopper Of A Lie
To paraphrase The Fixx's "One Thing Leads To Another", for Barack Hussein Obama, "One lie leads to another...one lie leads to another."
He is doing a mad-dash in lying through is teeth lately. Here's the most recent whopper of him lying:
Obama said that it was the Kennedy family that paid for his "Kenyan father to travel to America on a student scholarship that lead to meeting his mother from Kansas."
The only thing wrong with Obama's statement is...yeah, you guessed it...it's not true. He lied...again.
From the Washington Post, (that would be not FOX News for you Marxists):
Contrary to Obama's claims, the Kennedy family did not provide the funding for a September 1959 airlift of 81 Kenyan students to the United States that included Obama's father. According to historical records and interviews with participants, the Kennedys were first approached for support for the program nearly a year later, in July 1960. The family responded with a $100,000 donation [really not much of a donation, considering the vast wealth of the Kennedy's. - Drake] most of which went to pay for a second airlift in September 1960.
Obama spokesman Bill Burton acknowledged Saturday that the senator from Illinois had
erred in credit the Kennedy family with a role in his father's arrival in the United States. He said the Kennedy involvement in the Kenya student program apparently "started 48 years ago, not 49 years ago as Obama has mistakenly suggested in the past"
In his speech commemorating the 42nd anniversary of the Selma civil rights march, Sen. Obama linked his father's arrival in the United States with the turmoil of the civil rights movement. Although the airlift occurred before John F. Kennedy became president, Obama said that "folks in the White House" around President Kennedy were looking for ways to counter charges of hypocrisy and "win hearts and minds all across the world" at a time when America was "battling communism."
"So the Kennedys decided 'we're going to do an airlift,' " Obama continued. " 'We're going to go to Africa and start bringing young Africans over to this country and give them scholarships to study so they can learn what a wonderful country America is.' This young man named Barack Obama got one of those tickets and came over to this country. He met this woman whose great-great-great-great-grandfather had owned slaves. . . . So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born."
A more accurate version of the story would begin not with the Kennedys but with a Kenyan nationalist leader named Tom Mboya, who traveled to the United States in 1959 and 1960 to persuade thousands of Americans to support his efforts to educate a new African elite. Mboya did not approach the Kennedys for financial support until Obama Sr. was already studying in Hawaii.
It is also time for the MSM to cease and desist referring to Ted Kennedy's Poodle as "the senator from Illinois," in what is a not so subtle reference and attempt to portray him as the next Abraham Lincoln, which he most definitely is not.
It Is All Bush's Fault!

Speakeress of the House Nanny Pelosi said in 2006 that she had a secret plan (just like John Kerry in 2004 and all of his secret plans? - Drake) to reduce the price of gasoline. Go ahead, click on the hypertext, it's still up on her Congressional web site:
Monday, April 24, 2006
Washington, D.C. – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on President Bush’s, Speaker Hastert’s, and the Republican Congress’ empty rhetoric on gas prices. Key facts on the Majority's failure to address gas prices follows Pelosi’s statement.
“Democrats have a commonsense plan to help bring down skyrocketing gas prices by cracking down on price gouging, rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies, tax breaks and royalty relief given to big oil and gas companies, and increasing production of alternative fuels.”
Does anyone remember how Nanny wanted a super-duper jumbo jet at her personal disposal to fly her and her entourage non-stop from D.C. to California? Gee, it sure is funny how the Dems have forgotten all about this. All Talk, No Walk - well, that's Nanny and the Dems!
So who exactly is to blame for mucking up all the above?

Obama Tells More Lies On "The View";
Joy Behar: Still Functional Without A Brain
The Poodle told another lie - a whopper of a lie - regarding his pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Politico:
"Had the reverend not retired, and had he not acknowledged that what he had said had deeply offended people and were inappropriate and mischaracterized what I believe is the greatness of this country -- for all its flaws -- then I wouldn't have felt comfortable staying there at the church."
Wright has never made a public apology for his inflammatory statements of, "God Damn America..." and that "America is the U.S. of KKK A."
It is remotely possible that Wright may have privately told The Poodle that he was sorry for his inflammatory sermons, but this is unlikely to have happened.
Besides, if we are to believe Obama, he would only have left his church if Wright hadn't retired?
Joy Behar, proving that by putting lipstick on a pig you still have...well, a pig.
Joy Behar, again proving she is witless and the dumbest person on the planet ever - past, present and future - said she was not offended by Wright calling Italian's "garlic nose[d]". Newsbusters:
Joy Behar is so partisan as to spin an ethnic slur from Barack Obama’s pastor into a compliment. Discussing Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s "garlic nosed Italians" comments on the March 28 edition, Behar noted "he’s talking about the ancient Romans here," (apparently Reverend Wright did not know that Italy did not exist as a country until 1861) and claimed "the Roman nose has been celebrated in art and history...I don’t think it’s insulting." She also added that garlic in her diet helps with her "gorgeous complexion."
Using Behar's logic that "Wright was talking about the ancient Romans," she would have to agree that calling ancestral black people "Watermelon nosed" would not be insulting or inflammatory.
Behar also whined about how Obama would stand up to the hardball campaign tactics of the Republican Party.Puh-leeze.
Obama is already facing the most unsavory mudslinging and smear-merchanting campaign tactics coming from the Hillary Clinton Campaign. Nothing, and I mean nothing, from the Republican Party Campaign tactics will come remotely close to those that we've seen, and will continue to see, from the Clinton War Machine.
Behar has the intellectual capacity of horse manure. Wait, I take that back, horse manure serves a purpose...Behar doesn't. She's a mouth-breathing, knuckle dragging Cro-Magnon blob of overweight protoplasm with a voice that peels century-old paint off the wall. And dumb as dumb can possibly be.

The Hour Of Stupidity
On March 29, 2008 at 8 p.m., join millions of people around the world in making a statement about climate change by turning off your lights for Earth Hour, an event created by the World Wildlife Fund.
We invite everyone throughout North America and around the world to turn off the lights for an hour starting at 8 p.m. (your own local time)–whether at home or at work, with friends and family or solo, in a big city or a small town.
Many Republicans, Conservatives, Independents and Libertarians are disappointed that Arizona's Republican U.S. Senator John McCain is the Republican Party Presidential Candidate. Many would have preferred Fred Thompson or Mitt Romney.
Many of us - myself included - are trying very hard to muster up the motivation to support and vote for Senator McCain in November. A large part of checking the ballot or pulling the lever for McCain depends on whom he picks as his running mate. McCain doesn't have to throw Republicans "a bone" with his vice presidential selection, but he does need to mollify the Conservative base, especially those who believe in fiscal responsibility and a smaller government. Pawlenty, in my opinion, as the VP brings nothing to the ticket that helps motivate those of us having trouble supporting and voting for McCain.
There is a large amount of speculation that McCain will pick as his VP Minnesota RINO Governor Tim Pawlenty. Doing this does not coalesce the Conservative base.
I need a reason to vote for John McCain. Bringing Pawlenty on board as the VP does not give me a reason, in fact, it pushes me further away - and alienates me - from supporting McCain.
Why Pawlenty? Minnesota has only ten Electoral Votes. Certainly there are states with more Electoral Votes that are more of a Red State than is Minnesota. Why the rush for McCain to name a VP now? It seems unnecessarily early for McCain to name his VP so soon. What harm is there in waiting a while longer before McCain names his running mate? Why the rush to choose his VP this early?
Many of us need reasons to vote for McCain. Selecting Pawlenty as the VP simply gives me yet another reason to not support McCain. I'd support and vote for a McCain-Joe Lieberman ticket before I supported and voted for McCain-Pawlenty.
I'll take one term of Barack Hussein Obama in the White House if I must. America suffered through one term of Jimmy Cater, and one term of Obama will be just that; another four years under Carter. Yes, it will be painful, but America will persevere through it. We won't have to worry about Obama winning a second term.
On the other hand, give Hillary Clinton one term, and she will without a doubt turn it into eight years in the White House. And this...this will cripple us for decades.
I'll make a wager with anyone on the following; the outcome of the November election from Minnesota voters will still leave Minnesota as a Blue state with Pawlenty as McCain's VP. Picking Pawlenty will not turn Minnesota Red for November.
McCain can play the maverick and be the iconoclast. He can thumb his nose at the Conservative base. He can pick Pawlenty as his VP; all to the detriment of his campaign. By doing this, McCain will hand the keys to the White House to Obama or Clinton. Hopefully, it will be one-term Obama and not two-term Hillary.
A new Conservative movement will not occur or reappear without another Carter-like four years. Nor will it occur under a McCain-Pawlenty Administration.
I - and others - need reasons to vote for you, Senator McCain, not more reasons to sit out the election or throw our vote away on a Third Party candidate.

MacBook Hacked In Two Minutes
Mac OS X's reputation for security was tarnished Thursday when a team of researchers from Independent Security Evaluators (ISE) managed to hack a MacBook Air in two minutes using a zero-day vulnerability in Apple's Safari 3.1 Web browser.
The ISE security researchers -- Charlie Miller, Jake Honoroff, and Mark Daniel -- were participating in the "PWN to OWN" competition at the CanSecWest security conference, which began Wednesday in Vancouver, British Columbia.
"Pwn" is computer gaming slang for "own," as in conquer. The "p" typo serves to heighten the humiliation of defeat by emphasizing that the loss came at the hands of a youth who can't even spell or type correctly. The term has also come to be used in security circles.
As of today, since the Vista and Ubuntu laptops are still standing unscathed, we are now opening up the scope beyond just default installed applications on those laptops...
Rev. Jeremiah Wright Calls Italians "Garlic-Nosed", Obama Co-Chair McPeak Blames New York And Miami Jews,
Wright Builds Retirement Mansion
Rev. Jeremiah Wright
More divisive and inflammatory words from Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the pastor and spiritual leader of
Wright's statements just keep popping up and up. No doubt if he were the pastor and spiritual leader of any Republican politician, it's safe to say that that politician would see his or her career come to an abrupt and screeching halt.
Wright lashed out not only at Italians, but he said America is run by "white supremacists." CNN (that would be not FOX News for you Obamaniacs):
Rev. Jeremiah Wright, also came under fire this week when reports surfaced that he had written an article for Trumpet Magazine, run by his daughters, in which he said that “white supremacy is clearly in charge in America.” The article also quotes him referring to Italians’ “garlic noses,” and characterizing Jesus’ crucifixion as “a public lynching, Italian-style.”
"(Jesus') enemies had their opinion about Him," Wright wrote in a eulogy of the late scholar Asa Hilliard in the November/December 2007 issue. "The Italians for the most part looked down their garlic noses at the Galileans.
"From the circumstances surrounding Jesus' birth (in a barn in a township that was under the Apartheid Roman government that said his daddy had to be in), up to and including the circumstances surrounding Jesus' death on a cross, a Roman cross, public lynching Italian style. ..." Wright wrote.
In other controversial Obama news (this just keeps getting better and better, doesn't it?)...
Gen. Merrill McPeak
Obama's Campaign National Campaign co-chairman, General Merrill A. McPeak, is also causing controversy and embarrassment for Obama. McPeak said there is no peace in the Middle East, placing blame on "New York and Miami Jews." Israel National News:
General Merrill "Tony" McPeak, a former chief of staff in the United States Air Force who is a candidate for secretary of defense in a potential Obama administration, claimed that efforts to bring peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority failed because there is no US-written "playbook" to create peace.
An interviewer asked General McPeak "So where's the problem? State? White House?" McPeak pulled no punches. "(The problem rests in) New York City. Miami. We have a large vote here in favor of Israel. And no politician wants to run against it…nobody wants to take on that problem. It's just too tough politically. So that means we can't . . . you can't develop a Middle East strategy. It's impossible," he said.
Wright's future $1.6 million dollar; 10,340 square foot crib
Finally, it appears Wright will be well-taken care of in his retirement. FOX News is reporting having uncovered documents that Wright is building a dream mansion of a home. (And yes, this would be FOX News for you Obamaniacs):
A two-week FOX News investigation, however, has uncovered where Wright will be spending a good deal of his time in retirement, and it is a far cry from the impoverished Chicago streets where the preacher led his ministry for 36 years.
FOX News has uncovered documents that indicate Wright is about to move to a 10,340-square-foot, four-bedroom home in suburban Chicago, currently under construction in a gated community.
While it is not uncommon for an accomplished clergyman to live in luxury, Wright’s retirement residence is raising some questions.
...documents obtained from the Cook County Register of Deeds, Wright purchased two empty lots in Tinley Park, Ill., from Chicago restaurant chain owner Kenny Lewis for $345,000 in 2004.
Documents show Wright sold the property to his church, Trinity United, in December 2006, with the proceeds going to a living trust shared with his wife, Ramah.
The sale price for the land was just under $308,000, about $40,000 less than Wright’s original purchase two years earlier.
Public records of the sale show Trinity initially obtained a $10 million bank loan to purchase the property and build a new house on the land.
But further investigation with tax and real estate attorneys showed that the church had actually secured a $1.6 million mortgage for the home purchase, and attached a $10 million line of credit, for reasons unspecified in the paperwork.
Because churches are classified as private businesses, Trinity isn’t required to reveal its intended use for the line of credit. Nor, because it’s a non-profit entity, is it required to provide that information to the IRS.
Wright did not respond to repeated calls for comment, and Trinity United refused to discuss the specifics of the home it is building for him and the way the deal was financed.
Keep drinking the Kool Aid, Obamaniacs, keep drinking the Kool Aid.
Obama Charitable Giving: Cheapness Take 2
One item that I didn't have time to mention - and this appears in the New York Times story - is that Obama tried to pass off a $13,000 donation to the Congressional Black Caucus as a CHARITABLE DONATION!
From the NYT story:
The 2006 return also show a charitable deduction for a $13,000 donation to the Congressional Black Caucus. It is illegal to deduct political contributions as charitable contributions. The campaign said Mr. Obama had filed an amended return to eliminate that item as a deduction.
We shouldn't be surprised, though. Obama - I mean, Ted Kennedy's Poodle - is just as cheap when it comes to charities as was Albert Gore, Junior. In 1998, Gore's tax records reflected his contempt for giving to charities. CNN:
In a 34-page 1997 federal tax return, Vice President Al Gore and wife Tipper reported giving $353 to charity, an amount much lower than donations the family has made in previous tax cycles.
That figure is less than one-tenth the typical contribution amount for someone with the Gores' adjusted gross income of $197,729. That fact has caused some bewilderment in philanthropic circles because of the vice president's "good guy" image as an advocate for public service and social causes, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

Democrats Take Trip To Iraq
Paid For By Saddam Hussein
Left: Baghdad Jim with...oh, that guy....yeah, him! We know with whom the Democrats sympathize.
Three Democrats traveled to Iraq on an all-expense trip paid for by Saddam Hussein in October 2002. Boy, those Dems will do anything and travel anywhere as long as someone else foots the bill. What's next, a stay at the Afghanistan Hilton paid for by Osama Bin Laden?
Saddam Hussein's intelligence agency secretly financed a trip to Iraq for three U.S. lawmakers during the run-up to the U.S.-led invasion, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.
An indictment unsealed in Detroit accuses Muthanna Al-Hanooti, a member of a Michigan nonprofit group, of arranging for three members of Congress to travel to Iraq in October 2002 at the behest of Saddam's regime. Prosecutors say Iraqi intelligence officials paid for the trip through an intermediary.
At the time, the Bush administration was trying to persuade Congress to authorize military action against Iraq.
The lawmakers are not named in the indictment but the dates correspond to a trip by Democratic Reps. Jim McDermott of Washington, David Bonior of Michigan and Mike Thompson of California. None was charged and Justice Department spokesman Dean Boyd said investigators "have no information whatsoever" any of them knew the trip was underwritten by Saddam.
"Obviously, we didn't know it at the time," McDermott spokesman Michael DeCesare said Wednesday. "The trip was to see the plight of the Iraqi children. That's the only reason we went."
That's why McDermott is referred to a Baghdad Jim.

Obama Charitable Giving: Cheap, Cheap, Cheap
So it comes as no surprise at all that The Obamas gave only 1% of their income to charities during the years 2000-2004. Bloomberg:
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his wife Michelle gave $10,772 of the $1.2 million they earned from 2000 through 2004 to charities, or less than 1 percent, according to tax returns for those years released today by his campaign.
Senator Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, sharply increased their charitable donations as Mr. Obama began to run for president and the family’s income increased from book sales, according to tax returns that the couple released on Tuesday.
The Obamas’ returns are striking on a number of levels. They show that the couple made very few charitable contributions, sometimes less than 1 percent of taxable income, until Mr. Obama began his run for the White House.
In 2004, before Mr. Obama entered the Senate, he and his wife gave $2,500 to charity, 1.2 percent of the taxable income. The next year, the donations jumped, to $77,315, or nearly 5 percent of the taxable income.
“Their charitable giving only went up when it looked like he was campaigning for the presidential office,” said Paul L. Caron, a professor at the University of Cincinnati College of Law and editor of the TaxProf Blog, which examines tax questions and has posted the returns.
Could it be their last name is really Obamastein? Obamawitz?

Hillary And Tuzla, John Kerry And Vietnam: Selective Liberal Outrage From Obamaniacs
Well, good for her. You go Hillary! You leave the Democrat party in a state of Scorched Earth.
It's funny that so many Democrat Obamaniacs want her to exit the race. What's the matter Obamaniacs? You're not afraid of competition, are you? The Dems used to tell everyone that the more candidates to choose from the better.
Now, with MrsSatan's bid for the White House being perceived as a threat to
And it sure is funny how the Obamaniacs won't let go of Hillary's fake recollection of landing at the Tuzla Air Force Base. If she were the only Dem candidate running against Republican U.S. Senator and presidential candidate John McCain, the Lefties wouldn't even bat at eye at her greatly exaggerated Tuzla story.
It was only a short four years ago that the Lefties turned a blind eye to all of the tall tales that Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry told about his Military career. (They say Kerry served in Vietnam...has this been verified?)
According to the Obamaniacs, it's not okay to lie about Tuzla. But it was fine with the Kerryites - many of whom I presume are now Obamaniacs - for Kerry to lie and fib in 2004. Such a nice example of Selective Liberal Outrage, isn't it?
In his 2004 presidential campaign, Kerry claimed to have been in Cambodia on Christmas in 1968. WaPo:
"I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia. I remember what it was like to be shot at by Vietnamese and Khmer Rouge and Cambodians, and have the president of the United States telling the American people that I was not there; the troops were not in Cambodia. I have that memory which is seared -- seared -- in me."
John Kerry The Great
There were also questions in 2004 about Kerry's claims and statements about his Military medals and ribbons and the manner in how he obtained them. RCP:
I found numerous problems with Kerry's records on his website in my own reporting for the Chicago Sun-Times: a Silver Star with a V for valor listed that the Navy stated it had never awarded in the history of the US Navy, three separate medal citations with some heavy revisions in Kerry's favor signed by former Navy Secretary John Lehman who denied ever signing them, to name two.
Kerry had written the Bay Hap after action report, by which he received his bronze star and the third purple heart that was his ticket out of Vietnam, the evidence showed that it was indeed probably written by Kerry himself.
Kerry told [historian Douglas] Brinkley personally that he was a "no-show" at a national meeting of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War in Kansas City which voted on a resolution to assassinate six US Senators supporting the Vietnam War in 1971.
[Later, Kerry] pressured several of the witnesses who confirmed his presence at Kansas City to change their stories.
Oh, if only the Obamaniacs could get rid of Hillary. Well, that's not going to happen and this is driving the Obamaniacs crazy. Way to go Hillary! You Scorch that Democrat Earth!
Selective Liberal Outrage! How rich! How deliciously chocolaty, nougaty, creamy, caramel rich!
Flag Dipping Drives Thom Hartmann Crazy
The ritual of dipping the American flag before the altar at the Naval Academy Chapel has come under fire, and one group plans to ask a federal court to put an end to the practice.
In the only known ritual of its kind in the Navy, the color guard at the Naval Academy Chapel dips the American flag and the academy flag when they are carried before the altar cross during the 11 a.m. Sunday Protestant service.
Vice Adm. Jeffrey L. Fowler, who became academy superintendent in June, considered the ritual to be inappropriate and stopped it in October.
He reinstated it last month after some churchgoers complained.
Now, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, a group established to protect religious freedom in the military, plans to ask a federal court to ban the practice.
"Fowler had the chance to do something great and instead he did something of monumental cowardice," Mikey Weinstein, president of the New Mexico-based foundation, said yesterday.
Mr. Weinstein described himself as a conservative Republican attorney who thinks church and state should remain separate. He graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1977 and worked for H. Ross Perot and President Ronald Reagan, he said. His father graduated from the Naval Academy.
Mr. Weinstein said he received complaints about the Naval Academy ritual from "members of the Brigade of Midshipmen and the staff," who also complained of being pressured by religious fundamentalists at the academy.
"There has been a tradition of parading and dipping the national ensign and Brigade (of Midshipmen) flag by midshipmen during the 11:00 Sunday Protestant services at the United States Naval Academy for about 40 years," Cmdr. Austin said in an e-mail.
The flag-dipping ritual is carried out "only when midshipmen are present during the school year," Cmdr. Austin said.
"The tradition is not a part of any other religious service at the academy, and to the best of our knowledge, the tradition doesn't exist anywhere else in the Navy," Cmdr. Austin said in the e-mail.
Liberal Radio Talker Pinhead and Liar Thom Hartmann thinks this issue is so important it consumed the opening of his program on Tuesday, discussing the issue with Tara Ross, the Co-author of "UNDER GOD: George Washington and the Question of Church and State."
We had a Democrat United States Congressman who took his oath of office on a Koran; Minnesota's Keith al-Ellison.
We have a Democrat United States Senator running for president with very close ties to militant Islamic radicalism; Osama Hussein Obama.
Crybaby Thom has no problem with the Allah Akbar crowd because Liberals are the best friends terrorists ever had. But bring in Christianity? Oh, good Christ Almighty - then Baby Thom goes batshit crazy.
So the U.S. Flag - for a split second - is "dipped" and only when midshipmen are present. Wow, this is a huge, earth-shattering issue.
Meanwhile, Hartmann (Thom, are you a kike, too?) and Weinstein bend over, grab their ankles and take it up the ass from the Militant Islamofascists who commit acts of violence and atrocities all in the name of the Koran. Well, at least we know to whom they have allegiance.

Richard Widmark Dies
Actor Richard Widmark has died at the age of 93. BBC:
Hollywood star Richard Widmark has died at the age of 93 after a long illness, his wife has announced.
The prolific actor, who often portrayed killers and gunslingers, made a memorable big-screen debut in 1947 as a giggling psychopath in Kiss of Death.
He went on to star in such 50s classics as Night and the City, Pickup on South Street and the western Broken Lance.
The craggy-faced actor died at his home in Connecticut on Monday, according to his wife Susan Blanchard.
His last film role came in the 1991 thriller True Colors, although he made occasional appearances afterwards in TV documentaries.
"I now find the whole moviemaking process irritating," he said in 1987. "I don't have the patience anymore."
Born in Minnesota in 1914, Widmark began his career in radio and theatre before playing cackling killer Tommy Udo in Kiss of Death.
The film landed him an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe award for best newcomer - but he was not entirely enamoured with fame.
"That damned laugh of mine!" he said in 1961. "For two years after that picture, you couldn't get me to smile.
"I played the part the way I did because the script struck me as funny and the part I played made me laugh."

Still No MSM Coverage Of
Obama Ties To Passportgate
John O. Brennan is the CEO of a company named Analysis, Corp. It sure is funny how little play this story is getting. You don't suppose it's a Liberal conspiracy of silence, do you, perhaps to avoid some very damaging information?
Analysis, Corp. is the company where an employee breached the Passport security of Osama Hussein Obama. Obamaniacs had a hissy fit over this until it was learned that an employee of Analysis, Corp., also snooped around in the Passports of Republican presidential candidate and Arizona U.S. Senator John McCain and Democrat presidential candidate and New York U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton.
Then, we learned from CNN that Analysis, Corp., CEO Brennan not only donated $2,300 to the Obama campaign, but he is also an adviser to Obama on foreign policy and intelligence issues.
Do you think that maybe The Obamaniacs just don't know about the relationship between Brennan and Obama? Yeah, right.
Obama picked up the phone, told Brennan to have a low-level employee of Analysis, Corp., breach security into his Passport - along with McCain's and Hillary's - to take the focus off the Rev. Jeremiah Wright controversy.
Politics makes strange bedfellows and we are learning every day that the strangest bedfellows are all tied to Obama.
Got hypocrisy? Then you must be a steeped-in-denial Obama supporter. If Obama was a Republican, his political career would be over by now.

Michelle Obama Afraid Of Rural Guns
In New Hampshire last November, [Barack] Obama told a gathering of rural voters that his wife worries about urban handgun violence but realized while driving in Iowa that she might want a gun for protection if she lived in a rural area.
Michelle worries about violent urban crime, but doesn't feel the need to own a handgun in the city. Rather, she'd want one if she lived in a rural area. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, violent crimes are 50 percent more likely in urban areas than in suburban or rural communities. You're clearly much safer--all things being equal--out in the country than you are in Chicago.
Well Mrs. O, you never know when being out in the country when a rabid rabbit or crazed, murderous duck might be packin' heat or "comes heavy."
Go ahead, join Mrs. O and drink the Kool Aid. It'll be okay, really, it will. Just drink the Kool Aid...drink the Kool Aid.

Hillary Dodged Sniper Fire In Bosnia
MrsSatan now says that "she misspoke." CNN:
"I say a lot of things -- millions of words a day -- so if I misspoke, that was just a misstatement," she said.
This story is a non-issue that the Obamaniacs are hyping into a issue because they have nothing else and they are so trying to spin and distance themselves from the Rev. Jeremiah Wright controversy and the Obama Passport breach, a breach committed by a company whose CEO just happens to be an adviser and campaign contributor to Obama!
If Hillary was far and away the leading Democrat presidential candidate, and if polls showed her far ahead of Hussein Obama and he had no chance at narrowing her lead, the Left wouldn't be talking about - let alone criticizing - her embellished Bosnia-sniper fire story.
The only reason the Obamaniacs are puffing their chests out and making this story an issue is because they think it will help their candidate of choice,
If Hillary was the front runner, or the only runner, the Lefties would never be discussing her fake retelling of events that didn't occur at Tuzla Air Base. If it was Hillary versus John McCain, the Lefty Owned Media would not be reporting on Hillary's "misspeaking," it would be getting no media attention.
It's funny...the only reason the Lefties finally awoke from their head-in-a-hole slumber and are critical of Hillary Clinton is because so many of them support Ted Kennedy's Poodle. If he were not in the race, they would be balls-to-the-wall pro Hillary all the way.
Anyone - regardless of their political bent - with the slightest degree of objectivity has known for years the kind of underhanded tactics used by the Clintons.
It's funny when Lefties cannibalize their own. It will be most enjoyable watching the Democrats tear their own party apart over the next six months.
Man...I tell 'ya...if the Republicans can't win the White House and win back a majority in Congress this election year, when can they? The Dems have rolled out the red carpet for the Republicans to hold the White House and win back a majority in the House and Senate.

Who Said It?
Guess who said the following quotes. Here's a hint, all statements were made by the same person.
Ready? Set? Go!
"I'm very glad we've got the great team in office, men like Colin Powell, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice...people I know very well - our president George W. Bush. We need them there." (1)
"President George Bush had the courage and the vision...and we will always be grateful to President George Bush for that tremendous leadership and statesmanship." (2)
"President [George W.] Bush and Tony Blair should be proud of their resolve in the face of so much doubt." (3)
This person also voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980 and 1984. This person voted for George H.W. Bush in 1988. (4)
This person also said that had they been a member of Congress, they would have cast their vote approving the War in Iraq. (5)
Maybe you're thinking the person who said the above is some Right Wing Neocon Conservative Talk Radio host.
Maybe you're thinking it was the late Jerry Falwell, or Pat Robertson who made the above statements.
Well, if you guessed any of the above, you'd be wrong.
The funny thing about the above statements is that the person who said them is someone of whom the Democrats just love.
The Dems consider this person a leader, a hero and someone who would make a wonderful Cabinet appointment under a Hillary Clinton or Hussein Obama White House.
The Dems go Gaga-Goo-Goo over this person. The Dems wet their pants, piddling all over themselves over this person.
Do you know who it is yet? You Dems are going to be surprised!
Click on the comments section below for the answer and the footnotes that substantiate every item above.
And then you Democrats can let me know if you still embrace this person thinking they are the greatest thing since indoor plumbing.

Obama Passport Debacle: CEO Of Firm
Is Obama Supporter And Adviser
Remember the outcry from the Liberals when Hussein Obama's Passport security was breached? Then, we found out the firm also breached Passport security of Senators John McCain and Hillary Clinton?
Recall what I wrote on March 23, 2008 (at the aforementioned link):
Maybe this this is a CONSPIRACY put into play by Obamaniacs themselves to make it look like it was done by his opponents. I wouldn't put anything past Obama operatives. What better way to cover one's conspiracy tracks than to include your own passport in the snooping breach?
Oh, good Lord this is rich! Chocolaty, nougaty, creamy, caramel rich!
From CNN News:
The CEO of a company whose employee is accused of improperly looking at the passport files of presidential candidates is a consultant to the Barack Obama campaign, a source said Saturday.
John O. Brennan, president and CEO of the Analysis Corp., advises the Illinois Democrat on foreign policy and intelligence issues, the source said.
Brennan briefed the media on behalf of the campaign this month.
The executive is a former senior CIA official and former interim director of the National Counterterrorism Center.
He contributed $2,300 to the Obama campaign in January.
Oh, if the situation were reversed and the CEO were a supporter and adviser to McCain, the Left would be out of control with rage, anger and accusations that would take on a brand new "low", something the likes of which we've never seen.
Oh, if the situation were reversed and the CEO were a supporter and adviser to McCain, the Left would have spittle flying out of their mouth calling for heads to roll and for resignations.
Come on Lefties - put on your Big Boy Pants and apply the same standard to yourselves, your Party and Hussein Obama.
So much for any Liberal Conspiracy Theories that it was the evil Bush-Vader Administration that was poking around passport security!

Well, of course Obama did...to take the focus off the Rev. Jeremiah Wright story!
Obama Doesn't Want To Be Called Liberal
Awwwwwwwwwwwww, poor little Ted Kennedy's Poodle. He doesn't like being labeled as a Liberal. IHT:
...if Obama wins the Democratic nomination, how will his promise of a new and less polarized type of politics fare against the Republican attacks that since the 1980s have portrayed Democrats as far out of step with the country's values?
Obama, in an interview, said that "a lot of these old labels don't apply anymore."
"...I'm more likely to fall left of center than right of center," [said Obama].
He handily won the contest and label as Most Liberal Senator for 2007 from the National Journal.
While in the Illinois State Legislature, he supported killing babies who managed to somehow survive abortion procedures. You don't get more Liberal than advocating and voting TWICE to allow babies who survive an abortion to die. My, what Good Olde Fashioned
But Dave, you ask, how can the Liberals claim to care about the lives of Soldiers and Iraqis when they don't care about the lives of newborns, let along letting babies die that survive an abortion? The answer is Liberals don't care at all about the lives of U.S. Soldiers, Iraqis, babies or anyone else - they just use this as a political tool in what is their sick and disgusting arsenal of rhetoric.
Poor, poor Poodle. He just can't seem to steer his campaign back on course after the Rev. Jeremiah Wright affair.
And who knows what damaging information we might learn about The Poodle over the next six moths as the Tony Rezko trial unfolds and as we learn more and more undesirable things about the pro-baby-killer from Illinois.
Things are not looking rosy for The Poodle. He's a Liberal, a Biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig Tax and Spend and Grow, Expand and Increase the Size of Government Liberal. Joe Stalin and Karl Marx would be proud of The Poodle.
Bill Richardson Is Judas?
James Carvile, Inbred Redneck product of incest?
Clinton Crime Family Operative James Carvile refuses to apologize for calling Bill Richardson - New Mexico's Democrat Governor and former Secretary of Energy - "Judas", for his endorsing and supporting
Carvile...he makes me laugh! He's a medical school textbook definition of the results of when brothers and sisters or first cousins produce offspring.
Richardson endorsing Obama is a perfect Clintonian plan, only the Obamaniacs - as usual - don't "get it." Not even The Poodle will see this conspiracy coming.
Here's how this deviously brilliant Clinton Crime Family scheme works:
Richardson is a Clinton toady who doesn't do or say anything without receiving prior approval from Bubba or
Richardson endorses Obama with the explicit consent from Bubba and MrsSatan.
Obama will not be the Democrat Candidate for president, it will be Hillary. I know the Obamaniacs don't believe this, but they live in a pretend and make-believe world anyway, so it will be even easier to orchestrate a sneak and stealth attack against The Poodle.
Hillary then receives the support from those Obama voters endorsed by Richardson - the Hispanic voting bloc - because after she becomes the Democrat Candidate for president she names Richardson as her VP running mate.
The inexperienced Obama Campaign is being so very manipulated by the Clinton War Machine. The don't even realize their strings are being pulled and yanked. Obamaniacs will wake up one day to their candidate being left behind while Hillary walks away with the nomination as the Democrat presidential candidate.
I know you Dems don't believe any of this, but that's because you're too wrapped up in your Cult of Hatred. And because you are the most naive people on earth. The Obamaniacs will be totally blindsided by the Clintons.
I know you Obamaniacs don't believe me, so just stick around and watch. You'll see; oh, how you'll see. But by then it will be too late for you or The Poodle.
Kwame Kilpatrick, Democrat, Charged
With Lengthy List Of Offenses
Kilpatrick - have I mentioned he's a Democrat? - is charged with perjury, obstruction of justice and misconduct in office, stemming from a sex scandal six years ago. BBC:
Kwame Kilpatrick, 37, who says he will fight the charges, could face up to 15 years in jail if convicted.
He was charged after sexually explicit text messages surfaced that appeared to contradict his sworn denials of an affair with a top aide in 2002.
The aide, Christine Beatty, also faces charges of perjury and obstruction.
Mayor Kilpatrick is being investigated over claims he lied under oath last year when he said he had not engaged in a physical relationship Ms Beatty, his chief-of-staff.
Ms Beatty, 37, who had also denied under oath she had a romance with the mayor, announced her resignation in January.
Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced on Monday that he had authorised a 12-count criminal indictment.
And inappropriate and explicit text messaging? Huh, again that sounds so familiar. I think the Left was all upset over similar text messaging and Instant Messaging about a year and a half ago, if memory serves me right. Huh. Huh. I wonder why the Left is doing their best to avoid treating Kilpatrick in the same manner that they treated - that's right - Mark Foley?
So little time, so many lies from Kilpatrick - a Democrat in case I haven't mentioned it - and his lov-ah, both married to other people at the time of their fling. Ahhhhhhh, Love in The Afternoon, Democrat Style. So pure, so wholesome.
AP has excepts of Beatty's perjury and Kilpatrick trying to cover his tracks:
A comparison of what Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and his then-Chief of Staff Christine Beatty said during a whistle-blower trial in August 2007 and in text messages on Beatty's pager. The Detroit Free Press hasn't explained how it obtained the 14,000 text messages, which were sent or received in two months each in 2002 and 2003 from Beatty's city-issued pager:
TRIAL TESTIMONY ON AFFAIR:
Mike Stefani, a lawyer for police officers who sued the city, asked the mayor at trial: "Mayor Kilpatrick, during 2002 and 2003, were you romantically involved with Christine Beatty?"
Kilpatrick's response: "No."
Stefani asked Beatty if she and Kilpatrick were "either romantically or intimately involved" during the period covered by the case.
"No," she replied, rolling her eyes.
Kilpatrick later went on the offensive during his testimony, defending his reputation and that of Beatty.
"I think it was pretty demoralizing to her — you have to know her — but it's demoralizing to me as well," he said. "My mother is a congresswoman. There have always been strong women around me. My aunt is a state legislator. I think it's absurd to assert that every woman that works with a man is a whore."
Text messages published by the Detroit Free Press:
"I'm madly in love with you," Kilpatrick wrote on Oct. 3, 2002.
"I hope you feel that way for a long time," Beatty replied. "In case you haven't noticed, I am madly in love with you, too!"
On Oct. 16, 2002, Kilpatrick wrote Beatty: "I've been dreaming all day about having you all to myself for 3 days. Relaxing, laughing, talking, sleeping and making love."
TRIAL TESTIMONY ON FIRING DEPUTY POLICE CHIEF GARY BROWN:
"He was not fired," Kilpatrick testified. "My understanding is he could go back to lieutenant ... but I think Mr. Brown chose to retire."
On May 15, 2003, Beatty wrote to Kilpatrick: "I'm sorry that we are going through this mess because of a decision that we made to fire Gary Brown. I will make sure that the next decision is much more thought out. Not regretting what was done at all. But thinking about how we can do things smarter."
Kilpatrick replied: "It had to happen though. I'm all the way with that!"
Cmdr. Shereece Fleming-Freeman, chief of staff to then-Chief Jerry Oliver, recommended to Beatty on May 7, 2003, that Kilpatrick fire Brown, according to the Free Press.
"It is obvious that he needs to be gone; he just needs to be gone," Fleming-Freeman said in a text message to Beatty. The mayor fired Brown two days later.
Add Kilpatrick - did you know he's a Democrat - to another in a long, looooooooooooooooooong list of Various Democrat Perverts who only wear pants to keep their ankles warm. Okay, he's really not a pervert in the most strict definition - at least as far as we know - but hey, I'm just using the same tactics and judgment that is used by Liberals.
Oh well, you know...those Good Olde Fashioned Democrat Family Values!
