Quote of the day

Charles Krauthammer, talking 'bout the "Beer Summit," on Fox News last night:

I know all of us are supposed to get into the spirit of levity and good humor, but I'm afraid I can't.

This is a typical Obama. He commits an offense against the public good—he imputes racism where there was none—and then he declares it a teachable moment in which he will instruct us on tolerance, understanding, and brotherhood.

Now, he did this before. He does it over and over again. He's found in bed last year after 20 years with a raving racist. (We had known he had been in the church of Jeremiah Wright, but we didn't know about his racism until the middle of the campaign.) And what is Obama's response? He gives a speech on race, another teachable moment, in which he ascribes racism to everyone—white working class, African-Americans, Jeremiah Wright, his own grandmother—except himself. And he stands there hovering above it all, teaching us the ways of tolerance and brotherhood.

Look, he may be a great president or a lousy one, but when he acts in this way, when he stands above the fray in a patronizing and condescending way, instructing us on the ways of the world, I find him insufferable.

"Insufferable," indeed ...!!!

A cupcake in every pot

Yesterday, the President of the United States hosted a health care town-hall meeting in Raleigh, North Carolina. When asked what his "stimulus" was doing to help the economy, President B. Hussein Obama said this:

"[My tax cuts are helping people buy] cupcakes and other necessities of life."

According to the Prez, cupcakes are a "necessity"?! But wait ... don't he and his fellow Dems want to tax sugar-filled drinks and food to pay for guv'ment-run health care? (See the irony?!)

That said, in the same Raleigh speech, Prez'dent Barry said his stimulus bill contained no "earmarks." That was a fuckin' lie. And in a recent interview with Business Week, Obama said, and I quote, "I haven't signed a bill that's raised taxes yet." That, too, was a fuckin' lie ... he signed a bill to double the federal cigarette tax.

I keep gettin' more proud to say that I voted for John McCain after each Obama lie and/or "cupcake" gaffe, indeed.

Back to school!

If you need a good laugh -- nay, a really good laugh -- pick up a copy of The Nation. The folks at The Nation, you see, never got the message that Alger Hiss was a Soviet spy, or the message that communism has never worked, or ...

Here's U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) ab-SO-lutely schooling The Nation's Katrina vanden Heuvel on basic economics:


Apparently, Virginia is for (non-Obama) Lovers

Remember when I told you to watch New Jersey's guv'na race for proof that 2010 is gonna be 1994 redux for national Democrats?

Well, the Dems also didn't do too good in Virginia in '93, which makes this story a kinda foreshadowin'/post-shadowin' kinda thing ...

As the Washington Post points out, Republican candidate Bob McDonnell is nationalizing the Virginia gubernatorial race. That might have sounded crazy a few months ago, taking on a popular president in a state that went Democrat for the first time since LBJ, but it doesn’t seem like a bad plan now. As the Post notes, this may work as the public, including the more conservative electorate likely to turn out for a gubernatorial race in an off year, sees Obama and the Beltway Democrats slinging further and further to the Left.

And check this out ...

[Republican] Bob McDonnell ... has opened up a big lead in the Virginia governor's race, beating his Democratic opponent Creigh Deeds by 15 in the latest poll tracking the campaign.

The poll taken by southwestern Virginia's WDBJ News7 and SurveyUSA showed McDonnell carrying 55% of all voters while Deeds only garnered 40%. Five percent of voters remained undecided.

Piss 'n' Moan

There's a very interesting Web-mercial over at Collectivism Central, aka ...

So according to, Republicans are to blame for the fact that President B. Hussein Obama's budget-busting, risky health care scheme (apologies to Al "Biggun" Gore) hasn't already sailed through the halls of Congress.

Last time I checked, Democrats had a filibuster-proof majority in the U.S. Senate and a substantial majority in the U.S. House. Simple arithmetic tells me that Obama could pass his plan without a single Congressional Republican jumping on board.

Seems like shouldn't be bitching about the GOP, it should be bitching about swing-district Democrats who're not only concerned about how much ObamaCare's gonna cost, but who also don't want to be blamed for transforming the U.S. from a Republic to a Social Democracy.

Barry ain't doin' so good ...

From yesterday's Campaign for Working Families blog:

According to the daily Rasmussen tracking poll, Barack Obama’s approval ratings are continuing to spiral downward. Thirty-eight percent of the American people strongly disapprove of the job President Obama is doing, while 30% strongly approve. This ties his previous low of -8 on the Rasmussen Presidential Approval Index (the difference between those who strongly approve and strongly disapprove of his job performance). What’s even more interesting about these results is Obama’s total approval rating. Now, just 49% somewhat approve of the president’s performance, while 51% disapprove. This is the first time his overall approval has dipped below 50%.

These numbers are averaged based on three days of polling. Two of these days were done before Obama’s national press conference Wednesday night. It would not surprise me to see these numbers get even worse for the president given the way he is handling the Sgt. Crowley controversy.

Here’s more news from Rasmussen that must be worrying the White House. In a hypothetical 2012 matchup, Barack Obama leads Alaska Governor Sarah Palin but only narrowly at 48%-to-42%. Meanwhile, the president is tied with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at 45% each. And here’s more news that must have Nancy Pelosi reaching for the Pepto: In Rasmussen’s weekly question on control of Congress for 2010, Republicans now lead Democrats by 42%-to-38% -- the highest level of support Rasmussen has measured for the GOP in more than two years.

Post-partisan Prez? Yeah, right ...

Remember all that "post-partisan" shit you heard 'bout B. Hussein Obama back in 2008? Well, the 2009 B. Hussein Obama is anything BUT post-partisan.

First, there was the political firing of a U.S. Inspector General who pinched one of Obama's biggest supporters; and then, the head of the Congressional Budget Office, a Democrat, was summoned to the White House for a "Come to Jesus," er "Allah," meeting 'cause he dared to admit that Obama's health-care schemes will bust the federal budget.

Barry Obama just might be the most partisan president off all time. He may've campaigned as a "hopeandchange" moderate, but that ain't what he is. Oh, no.

President Barry dropped his domestic agenda into the laps of far-left Congressional committee chairs (see Stimulus, Cap 'n' Trade, ObamaCare, etc.); he basically nationalized two-thirds of America's domestic auto industry; he fired folks who dared to "put" sunshine on his administration's failures, and he's been putting the screws to members of his own party 'cause they won't blindly support his socialistic health-care schemes.

Just so you know, the Democratic National Committee is running television ads in the districts of Democrats who've expressed doubts about ObamaCare. As much as President Obama likes to blame the GOP for standing athwart his domestic agenda, it's conservative Democrats -- particularly conservative Dems in the U.S. House -- who're proving to be his most worthy adversaries.

Barry Obama likes to blame all of his troubles on the GOP. If he weren't such a hack-Chicago Democrat, perhaps he could see that his political future lies less in his listening to the likes of Barbara Lee, and more in his trying to "do good" by the likes of Lincoln Davis.

All that said, let's just agree to agree that our current President of the U.S.A. is a collectivist/statist. I dare you to tell me I'm wrong ...

Thursday, July 23, 2009



I've said it before, and I'll say it again ... President B. Hussein Obama is a f-ing liar. To wit (from the Weekly Standard blog):

Barack Obama, discussing deficits and the stimulus, in an interview with the Washington Post's Fred Hiatt: "The reason that it hasn't been at the forefront of my agenda is because I walked in when we were about to slip into the Great Depression -- or the next Great Depression. And so I had to start off, coming out of the box, with a recovery package that, whatever arguments may be made by the critics at this point, there was no economist out there who thought we didn't need to do."

Right. Except for these 200, a list that included several Nobel laureates. What makes this fib by our president especially galling is that the content of the ad taken out by the Cato Institute that listed these economists. It began by correcting Obama's claim, on January 9, that "there is no disagreement that we need action by our government, a recovery plan that will help jumpstart the economy."

The economists wrote: "With all due respect, Mr. President, that is not true."

It's still not true, however many times he says it.

Bad news for Barry

From the Campaign for Working Families PAC:

On Monday, the Washington Post reported that President Obama’s support on key issues, including health care, was collapsing. Among Independents, Obama was running a five-point deficit on his handling of health care, with 44% approving and 49% disapproving.

Now another major "mainstream" polling firm is reporting similar numbers. According to polling by the Gallup Organization, 50% of Americans disapprove of President Obama’s handling of healthcare policy, while 44% approve. Among Independents, Gallup found that 55% disapproved and only 40% approved. And going down the line of major domestic issues, the picture doesn’t get any better for the man in the White House.

On the economy, 49% disapprove, 47% approve.

On taxes, 48% disapprove, 45% approve.

On the federal budget deficit, 55% disapprove, 41% approve.

Barry -- er, President B. Hussein Obama -- is in a peck o' trouble right now. If'n he don't abandon this "progressive" left-wing crusade he seems to've been mounting since he took office, he's going to have a bad night in November 2010 ... and he's going to find his girly-armed ass out of a job come January 2013.


Liar, liar ...

More proof that our Commander-in-Chief is either a liar or an idiot ... (HT:

Obama, on March 3: "I can say that 14 days after I signed our Recovery Act into law, we are seeing shovels hit the ground."

Obama, to Katie Couric, yesterday: "The money that's taken a while to get out is actually the money for infrastructure projects, but that's always the case. Because you can't start building a road or a bridge without making sure that the studies have been done. The engineering reports are there. And we don't want to waste this money."

Up'n Jersey

Back in 1993, a good deal of Bill Clinton's luster was knocked off when a Republican upstart knocked off an incumbent Democrat guv in Dem-leaning New Jersey. Fast forward to 2009 ...

New Jersey no longer leans Democrat, it's a Democrat bastion Indeed, B. Hussein Obama got 57 percent to John McCain's 42 percent the Garden State in 2008. The state also has two liberal U.S. Senators -- one of whom owes his election to the law-ignorin' machinations of his state's liberal supreme court.

The Garden state might be full o' left-wing nuts, but it stands poised to do this year what it did in '93: Send a message to a flailing Democratic prez by turning an incompetent Democratic gov'na out of office.

Just so you know, Republican Chris Christie has a 53-38 lead over Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine right now. Corzine's been pounding Christie with negative ads the past few weeks, but it ain't moved his poll numbers none. Meanwhile, independent voters are falling into line behind Christie.

Again, President B. Hussein Obama and his loyal band of Obamaniacs have to be watching what's happening in New Jersey and wiping sweat from their collective brows. If they ain't, they're in more trouble than they realize ... indeed.

Worst Prez ever (and he can't keep his damn stupid mouth shut)

Former-Prez Jimmy Carter -- he of gas lines, charred helicopters in the Iranian desert, "malaise," double-digit inflation, the Misery Index, Soviet encroachment across the globe (Afghanistan, Angola, Nicaragua, etc.), scandals involving trusted aide Bert Lance and brother Billy Carter -- has made an ass of himself by announcing, in a very public fashion, that he left the Southern Baptist Church because said church is "cruel" to women, mainly 'cause it won't ordain female pastors.

For the record, I am fully in favor of women serving in leadership positions in the Christian church. I take that position not only as a member of the United Methodist Church who's worshiped in churches with female pastors, but also as someone who, whilst building my 320-plus volume theological library, recently "discovered" evidence that female deacons were executed during Rome's post-crucifixion Christian persecution.

I could go on and on about how the Southern Baptists - as well as the Church of Christ, the Catholics and members of the Orthodox church - are wrong on the role of women in the Church. I could, but that is a subject for another day. Just know ...

Jimmy Carter says he don't like the Southern Baptist Church 'cause it don't have female pastors and it has this doctrine 'bout how wives should "submit to the authority" to their husbands (even though only about 10 percent of U.S. marriages have husbands who are in submission to their wives).

All that said, ain't Jimmy Carter an apologist for "Palestinians" living in the West Bank and Gaza? You know ... the same Palestinians who have no problem with honor killings; who insist on females being covered from head to toe (lest they temp their virtuous male compatriots); and who stone females to death as "whores" after they've been raped.

Think about all that ...

Jimmy Carter: he was a joke president, and he's an ever bigger joke former-president. Indeed.

Dumbest VP ever?! (He's at least the most full-o'-**** VP ever ...!)

From National Review Online ...

Eight days after Joe Biden traveled to Ohio to defend the stimulus, arguing, "Roads plus teachers plus cops plus jobs equals a community — and that equals paychecks and prosperity," the unemployment rate in the state increases from 10.8 percent to 11.1 percent. That is the highest in 26 years.

UPDATE: Man, Joe Biden is a one-man employment wrecking crew, because the rate shoots up everywhere he visits: "A day after the Vice President touted the success of the stimulus in Richmond, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that Virginia lost 22,800 jobs last month and the unemployment rate rose to 7.2 percent."

Oh, and let's not forget that Ol' Joe Biden says the U S of A needs to spend lots more money to avoid bankruptcy.

I'm about to spend lots more time cutting my wrist to avoid death-by-bleeding ... reckon Joe Biden would approve?!

A Conservative awakening?

We can only hope ...

From the Campaign for Working Families PAC:

Pollster Scott Rasmussen reports that for the third week in a row Republicans are leading in the generic ballot test for control of Congress in 2010. It’s also worth noting that President Obama’s approval index (the difference between those who strongly approve and those who strongly disapprove) remains in negative territory at -7.

In the past, his approval index has gone negative, but quickly improved. That is not happening now. In fact, Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll has placed Obama’s approval index in the negative digits for the past two weeks. Moreover, for the first time ever, the percentage of voters strongly approving of Obama’s performance fell below 30% on July 12th and has remained below that threshold every day since.

Confronted by the most leftwing administration and Congress in generations, a political force that has produced a foreign policy build on appeasement, a "cap and trade" energy tax and a socialized healthcare plan, it is encouraging to see that America may be on the cusp of a new conservative awakening. The "Carter malaise" gave us Ronald Reagan. Who knows what 2012 may bring. But first we must liberate Capitol Hill from the Obama/Reid/Pelosi "axis of liberalism" next year and restore commonsense to Congress!

Like a girl ...

You don't know how much it pains me to know that my Commander-in-Chief throws a baseball like a girl. To wit:

That pains me, but this pisses me off:

According to B. Hussein Obama, the Chicago White Sox play at "Cominskey Field." Cominskey Field ...?! (Dan Quayle never said nothing as stupid as "Cominskey Field," indeed.)

Obama has never stepped foot into a venue in which "his" White Sox have played ... I'd bet my life savings on that.

Oh, before I forget ... my beloved Red Sox play their games at historic Fenskey Field! Just thought you'd like to know.

Our Collectivist-in-Chief ...

President B. Hussein Obama said he didn't want to "run" U.S. car companies or U.S. banks. And then the gov'ment went and became big shareholders in U.S. car companies and U.S. banks.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, B. Hussein Obama ran an ad - a very effective ad, I'll admit - in which he said there were two "extremes" when it came to health care reform (status quo vs. gov't-provided health care, remember?). He promised to reform the current system whilst preserving the current private insurance market. He then went and proposed a "public option" reform which'd more or less allow each and every American to sign up for Medicare, thus destroying private health insurance in the U.S.

It's no secret that Obama's a liar (see above). I took a great deal of heat last year for calling Obama a "socialist." He never called for public ownership of "producers," I'll give you that. So maybe he ain't a socialist. I think it's safe to say, however -- and I will never apologize for saying this -- that he is a collectivist, mainly 'cause his administration is proposing shit like this:

U.S. government officials are weighing a plan that would let borrowers who have fallen behind on their mortgage payments avoid eviction by renting their homes instead, sources familiar with the administration's thinking said on Tuesday.

Under one idea being discussed, delinquent homeowners would surrender ownership of their homes but would continue to live in the property for several years, the sources told Reuters.

Officials are also considering whether the government should make mortgage payments on behalf of borrowers who cannot keep up with their home loans, tapping an unused portion of a $50 billion housing aid kitty.

As part of this plan, jobless borrowers might receive a housing stipend along with regular unemployment benefits, the sources said.

Auto-exec-in-chief, doctor-in-chief, and, now, landlord-in-chief! Please, someone dispute my notion that B. Hussein is a certified collectivist. Those who want to do it probably need to bone-up on their Von Mises and Haykek ... but I eagerly await replies from those who don't wanna, indeed.

Cellphones and sich ...

I took some heat for saying that it takes a regular jackass to clip a cellphone to his belt. (I added a pic of President B. Hussein Obama with a cellphone clipped to his belt for illustration. See here.)

OK, I'll admit ... not everyone who wears carries a cellphone on his or her (?!) belt is a jackass. But anyone who carries TWO cellphones on his belt IS a jackass. Witness U.S. Representative Jim Cooper (D-Nashville) in the current NFocus magazine:

I don't have much use for Jim Cooper. You can read all about it here.


Ya'll come!

Y'all come (Y'all come!)
Y'all come (Y'all come!)
You all come to see us when you can
Y'all come (Y'all come!)
Y'all come (Y'all come!)
Oh, you all come to see us now and then

-- Porter Wagoner

J. William Anderson, formerly of Mahwah, New Jersey, said this in the July 2 Wall Street Journal ...

Regarding your editorial "The Albany-Trenton-Sacramento Disease" (June 26): You're right on. The liberal, progressive policies of California, New York and New Jersey are spelling ruin for these states, and what is worse, the pols in each state still do not get it. They intend to keep piling on.

The Anderson family is very pleased to announce that as of July 8 we are getting the heck out of Dodge (a.k.a. New Jersey) and heading to a more tax-friendly environment, Tennessee. I am proud to say that I am part of that 1% to 2% that you mention, and I no longer intend on handing over hard-earned money. Contrary to published reports, no one handed me, or most of us, anything. We earned it.

There are many more like me, but the pols still don't get it because ego, power and self-preservation are their main concerns.

The so-called rich have about had it. In the end, state governments are only harming the constituents they so loudly profess to love dearly.

It's no secret why the Yankees like the Anderson family are moving to Southern states like Tennessee: Tennessee routinely votes Republican, thus we have low taxes AND low unemployment. Kevin Hassett told us 'bout it in the June 22, 2009, National Review:

Yale economist Ray Fair has studied the impact of the economy on presidential elections and found that bad economies tend to hurt incumbent parties. Republicans, still smarting from the wounds of last November, know exactly how that process works. Democrats successfully convinced voters that President Bush and his party were to blame for our economic collapse.

Bush certainly deserves some of the blame, but there is plenty to go around. One of the ironies of the last election cycle, in which so much of the map went blue, is that the states that have done the most to hurl the nation into recession have been blue historically. The nearby chart adds intriguing “color” to that observation.

The chart plots the average unemployment rate in April for different categories of blue and red states. The first bar gives the average unemployment rate in April for “reliably” Democratic states, defined as those that have voted for the Democratic candidate in every presidential election since the 1980s. The average unemployment rate in these states was a whopping 9 percent. The remaining bars show that unemployment is less severe in states that only recently began taking Democratic medicine.

The next three bars tell a strikingly different story. The first red bar shows the average for states that switched to the Republican side in the 2000s. Unemployment in these states is a tad below the national average.

The second red bar shows the average unemployment rate in states that switched to red in the 1990s. Unemployment in these states is now well below the national average. The third red bar shows the average for states that have voted for the Republican presidential candidate in every election since the 1980s. Think of these as the “super reliable” red states. The average unemployment rate in these states stood at only 6.7 percent.

States that are traditionally Republican have avoided the worst of this recession. The longer a state has been taking Republican medicine, the better off it is. The contrast between the two patterns could hardly be more noticeable. If Republican policies have been vitamins, Democratic policies have been poison.

The economic data suggest that Democratic policies effectively spread human misery. President Obama now has the political power to do for the nation what Democrats have done to California.

The only consolation is that Professor Fair’s model will quite reliably predict political and policy reversals as the economic misery spreads across our nation.

Let the "Don't Blame Me ..." special shine a light on you ...

December last year, me and one of my bud's ordered 500 "Don't Blame Me, I Voted For McCain" bumper strips. A few weeks later, I monetarily-challenged a Nigh Seen Creeder hater that we'd sell out of said strips within six months.

The hater in question dismissed my challenge (search the Creeder's archives to "see" the dismissing), but nuts-to-him I just ordered "... I Voted For McCain" batch o' stickers No. 2. Copies of bills of Sale will be sent to him if and when he mans-up and send me his mailing address. So there.

All that said, I'm selling "Don't Blame Me, I Voted for McCain" stickers for $.13 each, from now until my birthday, August 13. Throw in a buck for postage and you can have as many stickers as you want ... for $.13 a piece.

The Nigh Seen Creeder
2479 Murfreesboro Road, #339
Nashville, TN 37217


To borrow a line from Frank Costanza, I'm back, baby!

For various reasons -- I was out of town, I was sick, my Dad was really sick, I was a little burned out, I had lots o' books I needed to read -- The Nigh Seen Creeder has been a bit of a ghost town. That's all over now ... I'm officially baaaaaaack in the saddle again (channeling classic Aerosmith). Oh, and thanks to all those who sent thoughtful "Where are you?" e-mails.

Here's the deal: there're about 150 comments needing approval in my comment "box." I'm going to dump them all, except for those that make me say, "Wow, that was clever!" That's probably, like, eight or ten, so I apologize in advance if you get one of your backed-up comments rejected.


It was bound to happen ...

It was bound to happen. I mean, what goes up must come down, right?! What the **** am I talkin' about you ask? President B. Hussein Obama's poll numbers, of course.

Rasmussen now has Obama's Presidential Approval Index at minus-7 ...

Rasmussen also has Republicans leading Democrats on the generic Congressional ballot for the first time in a long time. Oh, and then there's the recent Quinnipiac poll which revealed that Obama's approval rating in "swing-state" Ohio currently sits at 49 percent ... down from 62 percent in May. Ohio voters, by a 48 to 46 percent margin, disapprove of the way President Obama is handling the economy.

Obama doesn't have to face the electorate until 2012. His Congressional allies aren't so lucky. Indeed, the 2010 midterm elections will be cranking into high gear 'bout one year from now. Polls and approval "ratings" aside, here's what you need to know ...

The unemployment rate now sits at 9.7 percent. In a rare fit of candor, the Obama Administration recently admitted that the unemployment rate may top 10 percent this year. Warren Buffet, the supposed financial guru who supported Barry Obama in 2008, predicts 11 percent unemployment by year's end.

That said, if the unemployment rate is hovering in the 10 or 11 percent range next October and November, there'll be a great many Congressional Democrats who'll be looking for new work.

Let's talk about all that in sixteen months, shall we ...?!
