Hugo Chavez, The Next Global Warming Celebrity

December 17, 2009

I simply do not understand how Liberals first of all believe in the whole man-made global warming mantra, and second do not see how the rest of world is hell-bent on using it as a means to destroy the greatest country  in world. Anyone who is even remotely following the climate talks in Copenhagen, must surely be aware of all the anti-American rhetoric dribbling from the mouths of the likes of Hugo Chavez and others. And this drivel comes even as our country pledges 100 billion (yes, that’s billion with a “b”) to supposedly help developing countries address climate change needs. Yep folks, all this as we are in a recession and 12 trillion in debt. What a bunch of bunk.

And then there’s Chavez:  apparently next to AlGore (or the Goracle as he’s referred to at Hot Air), Chavez is the next  world-wide celebrity of man-made global warming. As he spewed his anti-capitalistic and anti-American rhetoric he brought the house down.  Consider these words from his speech:

“our revolution seeks to help all people…socialism, the other ghost that is probably wandering around this room, that’s the way to save the planet, capitalism is the road to hell….let’s fight against capitalism and make it obey us.”

I leave with this question: how can our political leaders not see how the rest of the world wants to use this huge farce coupled with Cap and Trade to cripple our country and bring the last beacon of freedom in the world to her knees? It’s simply astounding.

On Topic: Obama’s Grade- From the Right

December 15, 2009

I’ll Give You A “B” for Blame Bush

I did not watch the Oprah Winfrey interview of Obama, just as I promised (I mean good grief I was having too much fun at a Christmas party after all), but I did happen to catch wind of the now-infamous grade Obama gave himself. And I have to say if by B+ Mr. Obama meant bad, or beastly, or bummer, than I would have to agree. Here’s the run down:

On her Christmas in Washington special on ABC last night, Oprah Winfrey asked President Obama to grade himself.

“Good, solid B-plus,” the president said.

Explaining, he said, “we have inherited the biggest set of challenges of any president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

“We stabilized the economy, and prevented possibilities of a Great Depression or a significant financial meltdown. The economy is growing again.

“We are on our way out of Iraq. I think we’ve got the best possible plan for Afghanistan.

“We have reset our image around the world

Now in the president’s defense, I know he can’t go around telling the truth. I mean of course he can’t say, “Well, Oprah, to be honest, we’ve passed a gigantic pork-filled $800 billion dollar stimulus that has done nothing to improve the economy. I know I promised unemployment wouldn’t go over 9%, and we’re now at 10. And I know the value of the dollar is in the tank. I mean good grief Oprah, we are 12 trillion in debt, and I want to spend even more…”

He also can’t say, “I promised the American people government-run healthcare and I can’t get that done, and I don’t really care if we are victorious in Afghanistan. I know that the success in Iraq was due in large part to Bush and McCain, so if I sum it all up, I think I deserve a big, fat FAIL.”

I mean seriously what good has come out of his presidency so far? He says the world likes our image now, yet the world voted down Chicago. Iran is building up nuclear power plants, and every where we turn, powerful dictators are plotting our failure. But he won the Nobel! Oh goody! And I’m sure his golf game probably deserves a B+ with all the time he’s spent on the course.

You know what Mr. President,  I reconsider, I’ll give you two B’s… for Blame Bush, since you do seem to have that down perfectly.
