Sandy Rocks the Nation, Obama Mocks the Nation

Atlantic City underwater.

In the aftermath of super storm Sandy, we keep those impacted in our prayers, especially for those who have lost loved ones. I sincerely ask you to continue to pray for all affected. I did not want to bring any politics into an article that had to deal with the hurricane, and I do seem to remember hearing recently Obama saying something to that effect, however he did happen to throw his lean forward slogan into a couple of press conferences. So make this political he did first.

Having a family member in path of the hurricane myself, in Maryland, I have been following the events as much as possible, but I also see the need to not lose focus on the developments of the so-called ‘Benghazi-gate.’ Don’t forget, according to Rahm Emanuel, we don’t want to waste a crisis. Well this is just the crisis needed to take everyone’s mind off the loss of American lives in Libya and focus them elsewhere.

It is very saddening to have to say something like that. We need badly to support our fellow citizens, but individuals and conglomerates of left based groups and foundations have been “capitalizing” on the deaths and struggles of Americans and spinning them into something they can use to push agendas and hide corruption.

Just look at how the left uses gun related tragedies to try to push gun control, or how they used news about celebrities to sort of hide the passage of Obamacare. We all know what happened in Benghazi, well all of us except Chris Matthew’s. We know about the lies and deceit, we now know about the possibility that the white house denied support to the Marines in Benghazi, sentencing them to a death penalty for serving this great country. Now according to recent developments, the white house, including the president, may have been watching the attack as it happened.

Then, I heard something that just made my stomach churn. During a press conference, Obama said, “we leave nobody behind,” I found it a little unnerving. I mean why would he say something like that when we did leave Marines behind, and ultimately paid the price with their lives. Then I just about came unglued when I found out he was actually talking about those affected by the hurricane.

Again, I mourn with those on the east coast who are mourning, I am not knocking the seriousness of the situation, and I’m not saying we should leave anyone behind. What I am saying that in light of the happenings in Benghazi, this was a very poor choice of words. Very poor Mr. President. Then again, he seems to always choose the poorest choice of words.

On a side note, I find it despicable to hear people talk badly about the Romney/Ryan campaign using their bus to help ship needed supplies to areas impacted by the hurricane. If you feel compelled and want to help those affected by hurricane Sandy, here are a couple of links that you can use to donate monetarily if you’d like:

Political Fails #7

This week was a little slower, I think, due to the debate and everyone covering that more than normal news.  I did manage to find a few stories that were definitely down the fail line, though.


Monday 10/15:

I didn’t see this on Monday, but according to  Mark Halperin, a veteran politics reporter, both Obama and Romney campaign’s had complaints about having Candy Crowely as the moderator for the debate.  They apparently weren’t happy with the way she might inject herself into the debate.  Being as it was a townhall format the audience is the one’s who should steer where the debate would go.

From Halperin’s TIME report:

While an early October memorandum of understanding between the Obama and Romney campaigns and the bipartisan commission sponsoring the debates suggests CNN’s Candy Crowley would play a limited role in the Tuesday-night session, Crowley, who is not a party to that agreement, has done a series of interviews on her network in which she has suggested she will assume a broader set of responsibilities. As Crowley put it last week, “Once the table is kind of set by the town-hall questioner, there is then time for me to say, ‘Hey, wait a second, what about X, Y, Z?’”

So it’s not all that surprising she was jumping into the conversation like she did.


Tuesday 10/16:

I always told my friends and family that when smoking was banned in restaurants in California, it would spread to other states and then turn on citizens.  Sure enough, not long after the bans in California, my home state of Washington banned it in businesses as well.  Then there was talk, I don’t know if anything was passed, about banning smoking in you cars.  I know that some people are idiots and smoke with infants and children in their cars.  Those people are just that idiots, but I’m at the point where if the government tries telling me to do something I say screw it.  I want the government out of everything.

Recently, however, San Rafael, a suburb of San Francisco, decided to implement a ban on smoking in peoples homes.  Alright at least in multi-family homes and apartments, but still.  I’m sure these city officials and politicians mean well, but when you take our choice away, you become, in effect, tyrants.  Mark my words, in the near future there will be bans on smoking in all homes, then you’ll have to be 25 feet from doorways and windows, then no smoking at all.  Just for your information, I am not a smoker, but people have the right to put whatever they want in their bodies, no one has the right to tell me or you what to do with my body.  Or does that only work when it comes to abortion?


Wednesday 10/17:

This is just terrifying.  What happens when you go out into Hollywood, four hours before the presidential debate and interview people on how the debate went, before it even started?  That makes sense, right?  Anyway, Jimmey Kimmel found that out.  I don’t watch any of the late night shows, but this clip that I found on TheBlaze was just too good to pass up.  So here it is, you make your own opinion about it.


Thursday 10/18:

So there were actually a lot of stories to choose from on Thursday to add to the ‘Political Fails’ post.  So I have to go with the classic, a Biden gaffe.  While in Las Vegas Thursday, Biden actually asked the crowd of supporters if they knew anyone serving or who had been injured in Iraq or Iran.  Now Biden being confused is nothing new, but the worst part is that no one corrected him, even after repeating the gaffe a couple of times.  They just went along with it.  Either they forgot we weren’t in Iran, or they just go with it, because let’s face it, it’s Joe Biden.


Friday 10/19:

Friday was yet another hard day to choose a story from so I decided to do two.  The first is a video of a “Obama Super Fan” during a man on the street interview.  I don’t know what to say, it is just so mind blowing how, for lack of a nicer term, stupid this person is.  It seems to me that there might be a lot of people, even amongst the least intelligent, that realize communism and socialism are bad, but they are so blinded by Obama and the democrats that they think Romney is the communist.  I never thought this possible, but as you will soon see for yourself it is.

The second is again of our “great” VP Joe Biden, being well, Joe Biden on the stage.  While a lady, who is a cancer survivor was speaking,  Biden was being a little interruptive.  He was just trying to get everyone to sit down, but it was hilarious. You just have to watch and see.


I will leave you with this today, Governor Romney roasting President Obama and the MSM. Have a great week.
