Obama Ate Dog

Posted in Election 2012,President Obama by Ryan on the April 20th, 2012

The fact of the matter is, Obama ate dog.  And he, as an adult, wrote about it in his book.  Not as an animal rights issue, but as a culinary one.

This is What a Small Political Nuclear Explosion Looks Like

Posted in Election 2012,President Obama by Ryan on the April 13th, 2012


Small only because of the Defcon 1 damage control:

President Obama
There’s no tougher job than being a mom. Anybody who would argue otherwise, I think, probably needs to rethink their statement.

Michelle Obama
Every mother works hard, and every woman deserves to be respected. –mo

Jim Messina
I could not disagree with Hilary Rosen any more strongly. Her comments were wrong and family should be off limits. She should apologize.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Disappointed in @hilaryr ‘s comments. As a mother of 3 there’s no doubt that raising children is work.

David Axelrod
Also Disappointed in Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive.

But still nuclear because of this kind of reaction:



You can see why team Obama ran from this faster than most people even learned about it.

President Obama Still Fantasizing

Posted in National Security,President Obama,World by Ryan on the March 26th, 2012

I just saw that our President is still advocating a position that extends beyond reality.

The president said he believes the United States has a “moral obligation” to act and lead the world in reducing nuclear stockpiles.  He continued, “I say this as president of the only nation ever to use nuclear weapons.  I say it as a Commander-in-Chief who knows that our nuclear codes are never far from my side.  Most of all, I say it as a father, who wants my two young daughters to grow up in a world where everything they know and love can’t be instantly wiped out.”

His comments build upon stuff he talked about in his Prague Speech a couple of years ago, and I mention it here.

I’m not sure what the end goal really is behind this kind of rhetoric.  It is hard to believe that the man occupying the Presidency actually believes that we can eliminate nuclear weapons.

As Bill Kristol says,

Yet to justify a world without nuclear weapons, what Obama would really have to envision is a world without war, or without threats of war.

I would take it further.  To eliminate any kind of weapon that gives you any advantage, you have to remove human nature from humans.  Evil exists in the hearts of men across the world, and to deny that is to deny reality.  Past, present and future.  I know Obama said that the rise of the oceans began to slow during the primary last cycle, but can he really perfect us all?  Has the messianic vision of himself extended beyond his followers of 2008 and permanently affixed itself upon his mind?

More concisely explaining the general theme of that point of perfection, Jonah Goldberg was recently on Uncommon Knowledge and explained how progressives will never be satisfied because they believe in perfection.  Conservatives recognize that humans are flawed and that perfection is not attainable.  At least for the time being.  It is these diverging world views that drive much of the political debate.  (An unconstrained vision versus a constrained vision.)  Progressives believe that a utopia exists somewhere out there, and will enact policies in an attempt to achieve their vision of it.  Conservatives recognize the failings of humans and are more interested in establishing conditions through which imperfect beings can best thrive and prosper, despite their imperfection.  The US Constitution, traditional morality and ethics, etc…

This ambition to reduce nuclear armaments, with the goal of reaching zero, embodies this difference in vision of what is real, and what is not.

Obama’s Pompousness

Posted in Government Incompetence & Waste,President Obama by Ryan on the August 19th, 2011

Obama completely brushes off a farmer’s legitimate question about the government regulations he has heard are coming from agencies Obama himself oversees.  Obama comes across as very out of touch and condescending by delegitimizing a concern because it “hasn’t happened yet.”

I actually heard this question asked and answered on C-SPAN radio and was amazed at Obama’s callous dismissal of the farmer’s plea.

Turns out, the advice Obama gave the farmer to “directly contact USDA,” isn’t such great advice after all.

Didn’t Obama Talk About a New Green Economy?

What was the stimulus for again?  I could have sworn I was promised massive investment in a new green economy.

Chu said the United States still concentrated on research in areas such as computers, defense and pharmaceuticals but that its funding for energy innovation was paltry.

“America still has the opportunity to lead in a world that will need essentially a new industrial revolution to give us the energy we want inexpensively but carbon-free,” Chu said.

“But I think time is running out,” said Chu, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist.

“Incompetence” to Blame for Incompetence

“Frankly it just came down to the fact there was not a presidentially appointed, Senate-confirmed administrator in place until I was confirmed at the end of June to make a really significant decision like that, that would have impact on a number of people,” Pistole said. “That was a big part of it.”

TSA Director Pistole is basically telling us that the White House was so inept in responding to the threat of underwear bombers, that it took the actual confirmation of a TSA director over 7 months later to then begin the process of implementing the pat downs, which wouldn’t take effect until another 3 months later.

So this Christmas, if you’re flying, as we celebrate the 1 year anniversary foiling of the “Underwear Bomber,” we can also join hands in celebrating the 2 month anniversary of nationwide pat downs.

Obama seeks bipartisan support for infrastructure upgrade

What in the world was the stimulus for?  I thought we were pushing so many jobs out the door with that thing, our infrastructure was going to be sparkling by the end of Obama’s presidency.

Best part of the announcement?

Obama and LaHood said the cost of new investment would be paid for, rather than adding to the debt. However, LaHood stopped short of offering specific ways to do so, saying only that a number of options were being considered.

Sarkozy for President

Posted in Immigration,President Obama,U.S.,World by Ryan on the September 4th, 2010

Sarkozy’s Anti-Crime initiatives sound common sensical, and yet are met with criticism and protest.

If only Obama was truly interested in American exceptionalism and integration, instead of political pandering and non-enforcement.

President Obama’s Endgame

Posted in Government,President Obama,U.S. by Ryan on the August 18th, 2010

New video from Eric Cantor on deficit spending.

This isn’t the best video I’ve ever seen on the subject, but it is certainly a step in the right direction of providing informative content on budget deficits from democrats.
