    Whatever you think of his policies, you have to admit Obama sure knows how to give a good speech! I thought this was pretty good:

    “We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.”

    Exclusive: Mark Levin’s Inaugural Day Message— Fight!

    How to fight that agenda? Levin said the answer certainly doesn’t lie in the current Republican Party leadership. “I think the Republican Party, its apparatus, its so-called leadership, the parasitic consultants, represent an institution that is tired, old, almost decrepit, full of cowardice and vision-less. It has abandoned the Declaration of Independence and any serious defense of constitutional republicanism. The Democrat Party is now a radical 1960s party; it’s the anti-Constitution, anti-capitalism, anti-individual party. It largely controls the federal government, including the massive bureaucracy and much of the judiciary — what I call the permanent branches of the federal government. The Democrat Party represents the federal government, and the federal government expands the power of the Democrat Party. They’re appendages of each other. On the other hand, the GOP today stands for capitulation, timidity, delusion — so mostly nothing. Republicans may speak of the Constitution, limited government, low taxes, etc., but what have they done about them? Next to nothing if not nothing. Even when Bush 43 was president and the Republicans controlled Congress. What did they do? They went on a spending binge. They expanded Medicare, the federal role in local education, drove up the debt, etc. Meanwhile, we are lectured by putative Republicans like Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Tom Ridge, and a conga line of others trashing often viciously NOT Obama and what the Democrats are doing to our nation, but conservatives, constitutionalists, and tea party activists who are the only people left standing for liberty against tyranny in this country.”[………………………]

    Since Barack Obama became president, the U.S. national debt has increased by an average of more than $64,000per taxpayer.

    Worst jobs president? WORST PRESIDENT IN U.S. History bar none. Making Carter look like George Washington! I thought Carter was horrible (and since then, I’ve come to think of him as a true p.o.s., but I never thought he hated America…the liar-in-chief? Hates everything that made this country great. EVERYTHING.

    Why an adoring press crowns Obama with every honorary title – except this one


    Once Barack Obama emerged onto the presidential scene – remember, he’s the guy who boasted in “The Audacity of Hope” that “I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their views” – he became the “first everything president.”

    In 2008, Newsweek called Obama “The first woman president,”arguing that he “is pushing against conventional … wisdom in five important ways, with approaches that are usually thought of as qualities and values that women bring to organizational life … Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is taking a more traditional (and male?) authoritarian approach.”
    In 2009, Geraldo Rivera dubbed Obama “the first Hispanic president” for his support for “comprehensive immigration reform,” while an Agence France-Presse story cast Obama as “the first Asian-American president”for appointing three Asian-American Cabinet members.
    In 2010, the Washington Post’s Kathleen Parker reprised Newsweek’s earlier title, with “Obama: Our first female president.”
    In 2011, the cover of New York magazine christened Obama “The first Jewish president.” Really.
    In May 2012, Newsweek pushed the edge of the envelope by crowning Obama with a rainbow-colored halo on its cover, over the headline, “The First Gay President,” to honor his election-year abandonment of his long-expressed opposition to homosexual marriage.
    Things have gone so rogue that New York magazine has lampooned the craze by depicting Obama on faux magazine covers, including: “The First Italian President,” “The First Eskimo President,” “The First Vulcan President,” “The First Chiropractor President,” The First Lumberjack President,” “The First Sleeping President” and “The First Horizontal President.”[…………….]

    Second Inaugural Address: Obama Declares War on Liberty As We Know It

    After praising the “collective” and mocking the notion that America is a “nation of takers,” President Obama targeted the political opposition. He targeted those who “deny” climate change, attacked those who allegedly refused to reward the elderly for their contributions, and defied critics whom he said wanted “perpetual war.” He attacked the rich–as he has done so often over the past four years–and painted a caricature of an unjust nation: “…our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it….We do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few.”

    Four more years of this crap. I just hope the country survives.

  • Monkey Wrench

    I was reading Obama’s speech and this passage jumped out at me. It was a direct attack at Republicans:

    “We do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few. We recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, may face a job loss, or a sudden illness, or a home swept away in a terrible storm. The commitments we make to each other – through Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security – these things do not sap our initiative; they strengthen us. They do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great.”

    obama can’t even acknowledge and say United States. . .he stumbles the word. . .how convenient. . .Mr Eloquence. . . NOT

    He has contempt for the States. He has contempt for Americans. .where was the mention of jobs?

    A stolen election. . beware. .need voter ID laws. . Obama even mentioned long voter lines. . funny only in democratic districts and ALWAYS in the last half hour before polls close. . so they can keep it open and print out phony ballots as voTes come in from reliable conservative counties. . .

    They did it in Philly, Milwaukee and Miami. . . a Democratic Party Tradition. . .

    need to limit Electoral collage votes one per congressional district and winner of state get the two allocated to senate. . . .

    I know you are bitter because your side didn’t win and feel like you hate the majority of your fellow Americans for being so stupid as to vote for Obama. But this is America and we take care of our own. I remember when old people were mostly poor and had to live with their children. Medicare and Social Security have made a real difference in the lives of so many older Americans. That’s why the VAST majority of Americans support both programs. I hear the GOP leadership promising not to touch either program. One of the big knocks against Obama from Republicans in the election was that he was going to cut over $700B from Medicare. Republicans are NOT going to cut either program and will campaign against any Democrat that tries to cut them.

    You are in your “I hate America” phase at the moment, but it will pass.
