Dude…Where’s My Hope And Change?

Not that anyone hasn’t noticed by now, but the pResident is 100% into what he does best, campaigning. For nearly a month now, he’s been stumping across the country eating rubber chicken at $10,000 a plate fund-raisers. What’s seriously missing is Hope and Change. The once charismatic Chicago ward heel, stayed on focus for the entire primary and general election season riding that audacious sound-bite into 1600 Pennsy. Here he is looking for a 2nd term and perhaps facing a challenge much more daunting than 2008. He has a track-record and it isn’t pretty to anyone. I doubt if even the Kool-Aid drinkers that aren’t on Lithium treatments, fail to see what promises to be an up-hill battle in 2012. Where is this go-rounds sound-bite? The bumper sticker slogan that Zombies everywhere will rally to?

Maybe there’s more to this than simply “they haven’t thought of one yet”. Politicians are creatures of habit, none more so than the folks in the New Party of Marx. Think Class Warfare, Race Warfare and “being out for the little guy”. They’re infamous for sticking with a tactic way beyond it’s shelf-life. So why hasn’t the One True Annointed Light-Worker Messiah™ yanked the 2012 mantra out of his colon? The only conclusion I can draw is that it represents a serious change in tactics that is afoot. Perhaps being “cool” isn’t going to fly anymore. Perhaps Greek Columns and Roman Podiums won’t bring leg tingles and swooning females, along with their weepy pansy-ass metrosexual male counterparts once again, to the altar of “The Community Organizer That Saved America From Itself”. If one brings the militant protesters with crappy tee-shirts and Union-Made signs into the picture, that just might be the plan for this election. The LSM seems to have gone from actively promoting Ogabelini to defending him. Perhaps the awakening conservative base along with an engaged independent electorate has him just a bit scared. His BC press conference on Wednesday was just a little too mellow in tone, and seemed overly contrived. He was just too damn cool and collected over an issue that’s been hovering around for over two years now, an issue entirely of his making as well, and one that just doesn’t add up politically for a casual ‘blow-off’ right now. He spent millions keeping this document (if it actually is that) hidden and if it was a ploy, you would think there would be a big payoff. Instead barely a bump in the road.

Obviously the administration is going to need a radical change in plans for 2012. What worked so well for him in 2008 would fall on its face right out of the box now. He’s way past that, now that the country has seen his governance.

What have we learned about the man aside from that which we’ve known all along? Nothing… the man is still an enigma, as inscrutable as an Asian statue. We can’t be sure of what he really thinks about America, but his actions suggest energetically that he doesn’t like the country he’s spent his lifetime preparing to lead. What we do know is his ideology, the man himself has hiked up his skirt and shown us what’s underneath from the very start of his administration. Barry-Boy is one of the most dangerous types of cat, a true believer. The True Believers, the ‘moral busybodies’ that C.S. Lewis warned us about. This simple fact goes a long way in explaining Ogabelini. He is blinded by his leftist, radical ideological viewpoint, that clouds his judgment and makes it impossible for him to understand real Americans. The “True Believer” is dangerous because they do think they’re the smartest one in the room and any opposing viewpoints are misguided and dumb. People are the currency to be used brutally if necessary, to achieve the leftists’ ends, the pursuit of power. They being one of the elites, know what’s best for the plebes who are incapable of thinking and doing for ourselves. We must have strong leaders and accept our stations in furtherance of the promised utopia. Throughout history it’s invariable that at some point those unwilling to accept the ‘movement’ become un-useful and a danger to the cause, and that is where the bloodbaths begin. Obviously we aren’t there and G-d willing we never will be. We must draw the line in the sand before it occurs and understand what’s in store for us if we don’t. This is the only clue about one Barack Hussein Obama that we have. We can state with certainty his ideology is leftist. His visions, words, appointments (Van Jones anyone?) and actions serve to confirm this. Nothing he has ever done is out of character reinforcing this malignant viewpoint. He’s vile, but consistently so. Thats it. Regardless, even with this lack of intelligence, it’s still actionable. We can clearly see his weaknesses and attack those right through the election, without any other information. We could use the information, but don’t need grade transcripts, writings or anything else to send this nasty poser back to the wards.

But I digress. The BC controversy is far from over, and we need to be wary of jumping to conclusions about what increasingly seems to be a fake. The Holy Teleprompter-in-Chief is a tricky, dirty player in the Chi-Town tradition and what seems to be a crude forgery might be a ‘too-stupid-by-half’ ploy. I say might here because if it is indeed a forgery, he’s committed a number of felonies in perpetrating this plan upon the us. You can make the case for one possible reason that it’s designed to generate in-fighting amongst the conservative base that is divided about pushing for more disclosure and the other side that’s calling for putting this behind us and focusing on the real issues. Divide and Conquer, eh? Another could be that he’s shit-scared of Trump, and got stampeded into doing something. Say what you will about Trump, his strong suit is that nobody has EVER called out Teh Husseiny Boy Wonder™ like the “Donald” has. Tough and right in his face. Old Barry is getting a heaping helping of Chicago Politics from the other side and he ‘don theenk he like it Loosy’ much. The man has never faced an outspoken opponent. He’s gamed his race into shielding himself from legitimate attempts to debate real issues, choosing to fluff off his opponents by letting his posse play that card for him. He handily did the same with the dinosaur media immediately following his emergence onto the national scene. Say what you will, but the bastard has to be charming and convincing at some point with his supporters. He can’t maintain that and has shown time and time again that he’ll throw his own granny under the bus to advance himself. He can and will do the same to the fawning LSM and they would beg to come back to suckle him like a kicked puppy. That’s a clue about the danger level these types have.

In summary, the man remains an enigma. He wears that leftist ideology on his sleeve and the rest is well concealed, but I suspect his armor is getting thinner. His cheering squads have been pushed into defending him instead of the shameless promotion schtick and being bogged down with that is interfering with his thoughts on trying to get that ‘old-feeling’ of the heady days back. He’s in the fight of his life, with a dismal albatross of failed policy around his neck, no discernible foreign policy, massive unemployment, exorbitant gas prices that he seems to be trying to raise further, his signature issue, ObamaCare falling apart around his ears, a budget crisis of his party’s making and not a single accomplishment with large public support to stand on. Yeah, he has a monolithic crowd that would pull for him if he microwaved kittens on national TV, but that’s it. The far left and independents abandoned his ass last November, and if the idiots on our side of the aisle don’t fuck it up (a huge IF there too), they will be voting for anybody but Ogabelini on 11/2/2012.

It would be nice to know more about him, but we don’t really need to have that information. All we need to know is how to defeat him and he’s been our biggest help yet.

The change is the one we’ll hand him next November. The hope is we can do it without further damage to our beloved Republic.

-Carry On

    That is definitely one huge ‘IF.’ The legacy media and the inside-the-Beltway crowd are absolutely dead set on the idea of foisting Romney on us. Or someone equally as much a RINO.
    We need to push hard to get a conservative nominee-one who will call zero out on his lies.
    While I don’t think The Donald would make the best President, he has been absolutely fearless in calling zero to account. The reason is that he doesn’t give a rat’s heinie what the legacy media think. Whoever the candidate is will need the same attitude. As has been pointed out again and again, the legacy media is in zero’s pocket and will spew every bit of hate and bile they can find on whoever runs against zero. The candidate has to be strong and self-confident enough to withstand this or we are well and truly screwed.

    I get the feeling Obama will try some sort of October Surprise, or there will be some sort of false flag event.

    Thats just my 2 cents .. not that I am a cynic, mind you ..

    It’s going to be a vicious campaign with charges of racism levied in response to the slightest criticism of Obama.and heavy doses of class warfare.

    He can’t run on his “record”, so it’ll be pretty much, “If you don’t vote for Obama, you’re a racist!”.

    If the Republicans field a milquetoast RINO weenie type who takes the “high road”, they’ll get clobbered.

    All they have to do is put up a candidate (any candidate) with some spine who will hammer Obama’s record and loudly tell the democrats to jam their race cards up their collective asses whenever they play them and the GOP will win.

    Unfortunately, I don’t see that happening……

    Response to LC Sir Intellectual Conservative 5th Columnist @:

    Given that poorly crafted example of a “long form birth certificate’ being foisted on to the public as “authentic”, Obama’s “October Surprise” will likely be lame and ineffective.

    Something along the lines of a poorly photoshopped picture of the GOP candidate dressed in full Grand Kleagle regalia leading a KKK rally ….

    As a side note, I was never really into the whole “birth certificate” thing except to marvel at the utter contempt that Obongo and the democrat elite has for the American public.

    Birth certificates from the fifties and the sixties did not refer to people from Africa as ‘African.’ It didn’t matter if they were from Africa or America. If the father or mother was black, the race was ‘Negro.’ Why? Because whites are from Africa too.

    Or, alternatively, because Obama’s got more important things to do than spend the next two years parrying allegations of forgery and cries of ‘Photoshop!’ from every Billy-Bob Beckbot in cyberspace.

    The thing about conspiracy theorists which makes them so difficult to argue with is that they start with their conclusions (9/11 was an inside job, the moon landings were faked, Obama is a stealth black nationalist Muslim from Kenya who wants to kill whitey etc…) and then they carefully mould the evidence to fit them. Let’s say Obama releases the document. Five minutes later some self-appointed expert is banging on about how the watermark is a quintillionth of a nanometer too far to the right and so it must be a forgery. The rumour goes viral, as these things are wont to do, and now Obama’s got to prove the document is legitimate, while the conspiracy theorists have a new piece of “evidence” in the form of a “forged” certificate and have more license to stamp their feet, throw their sippy-cups on the floor, and demand more evidence. It’s a no-win situation. The best thing Obama can do is blank them out until they shut up.

    Read that once again, carefully this time. Notice the sentence construction indicates the need for wariness and jumping to conclusions. That’s carefully articulated to do the OPPOSITE of what you think I’m saying, that is ‘let’s start and whole new round of conspiracy theories’. I intentionally allowed for what seems to be significant, growing evidence as to the authenticity of the BC, but that is not grounds for going nuts again over the document. Fucking liberals slicing, dicing, mincing and parsing what is clear speech, to support your conclusions. Hell, that makes you a conspiracy nut in your own right.

    My thoughts on the Birth Certificate and eligibility:

    The person responsible for the “birther” “conspiracy” is Barack Obama. He, and no one else, has dragged the nation through this.
    If Trump had any brains, he would have said this immediately upon release of the most recent BC. If any Republican had any testes, they’d have said this immediately after TOTUS’s press conference calling it “silliness”.

    It is not “silliness” but what should have been a simple, run-of-the-mill, pro forma question answered 3 years ago. But, If it’s “silliness”, then it’s Obama’s “silliness”, and intentionally so.

    Personally, I wouldn’t know if the thing were fake unless it were written in crayon and signed “Natasha Obama”. However, there are people who make their livings doing document verification. In a court, there’s a thing called the Best Evidence Rule that requires originals rather than copies if the originals exist. Either a court of law, or the floor of the House of Representatives is where ALL major candidates for President should prove that they meet the requirements of the Office. The fact that this doesn’t (hasn’t) happen(ed) is only a reflection of the fact that such things are usually easy to prove, and have always been freely provided by any candidate if simply asked.

    Additionally, as far as I understand the eligibility issue, the Birth Certificate – even if genuine – does not prove eligibility as a “natural born citizen” (it actually proves Obama INELIGIBLE)

    The revelation of the BC (if authentic) absolutely PROVES one thing: That the hiding of the Birth Certificate in the first place WAS the conspiracy.

    People generally hide things because they don’t want them found. By Occam’s Razor, the idea that the President was purposely hiding his records as a political ploy was always the more conspiratorial view (rather than keeping a secret from being discovered). I had presumed that Obama didn’t want his BC found because there was something damning about it. THAT is the simplest answer as to why someone would hide such a thing. That he has been withholding something that should never have been withheld in order to sidetrack political opponents is a fairly devious conspiracy. So, there indeed WAS (and still is) a conspiracy.

    Having been shown that there WAS, in fact, a conspiracy engaged in by Obama & others, raises an interesting question: Is the Birth Certificate a misdirection away from some other aspect of his past that he truly DOES wish to hide? For, once the Birth Certificate is revealed, all other requests for information about his background are more easily dismissed as “silliness”.

    There’s nothing “silly” or “conspiracy-minded” about expecting any public officer to make his past known to the American public.

    That said, further investigations will never go anywhere, nor would they have any substantive result. I’ve always considered Obama’s eligibility to be a legitimate issue. Nevertheless, unless someone (many someones, actually) in some official position of authority within the Federal Government also agrees that it is legitimate — then there is no recourse and the question is moot.

    The “marginalization” of anyone still looking for reasonable and fair answers about Obama’s background will still occur because only a “margin” of people will continue to ask for what should always have been freely given.

    As I understand it reading about the Certificate of Live Birth (which is not a birth certificate) it sounds like it was specifically crafted by the State of Hawaii (read Democrat cronys in Hawaii) to show that Barry was born in Hawaii but not reveal any additional information. This is not a Birth Certificate. Just from the information released by the officials in Hawaii it certainly is a fake but there is probably information on the real birth certificate that Barry does not want released. This whole thing is a red herring.

    That’s where we seem to be headed right now. The RNC is going to do their best to marginalize Trump and in doing so miss the lesson to be learned from his current popularity. Our side is hungry for someone to quit playing the same game McLame did in 2008. Lets be all nice and never, ever say anything bad about the other guys. The way the GOP has been playing this game for decades was to keep side-stepping left, while insisting we can’t win nationally unless we out-dem the dems. What moron came up with that one? Even if we wanted to, do you really think anyone that’s a hard-core dem voter would ever vote for one?

    How many times have you heard “We’re better than that”? Coward speak for, “I’m too much of a pussy and scared the media won’t like me anymore”. We let the left define our demographics for us, as well as the issues. We have to be moderate so we don’t lose the independents. THAT is EXACTLY what they’ll give us again in 2012 if we don’t change the rules. Romney (a serious RINO, New England liberal) and some unknown even blander than he is for the undercard.

    The only time McCain ever closed the gap was when he stopped being nice and started calling zero out on his lies and on the Dhimms’ record. Why doesn’t the RNC get it (he asked rhetorically).
    I am agreed and afraid that we will get Romney foisted on us by an unholy trinity of RNC tradition, the legacy media wanting zero in for a second term, and the current primary schedule that favors purple/blue states and open primary states over red ones.
    However, we have six months to a year before the primaries start. That should be time enough to coalesce behind a conservative. One need only consider what the Tea Parties did in the course of a year. Failing that, we must continue with increasing the number of conservatives in the House and taking over the Senate-again with conservatives.
