Obama Doesn’t Have a Clue

Dick Morris, a former Pres. Clinton adviser, wrote a scathing yet insightful article for The Hillconcerning Obama’s response to the oil spill in the Gulf.

Conservatives are so enraged at Obama’s socialism and radicalism that they are increasingly surprised to learn that he is incompetent as well. The sight of his blithering and blustering while the most massive oil spill in history moves closer to America’s beaches not only reminds one of Bush’s terrible performance during Katrina, but calls to mind Jimmy Carter’s incompetence in the face of the hostage crisis.

America is watching the president alternate between wringing his hands in helplessness and pointing his finger in blame when he should be solving the most pressing environmental problem America has faced in the past 50 years. We are watching generations of environmental protection swept away as marshes, fisheries, vacation spots, recreational beaches, wetlands, hatcheries and sanctuaries fall prey to the oil spill invasion. And, all the while, the president acts like a spectator, interrupting his basketball games only to excoriate BP for its failure to contain the spill.

Mr. Morris gets right to the point by calling Obama out on his lack of reaction and his hand wring yet unless response. Oil has been flowing for over a month, ecosystems may be forever damaged and the only real response is to investigate for civil and criminal offenses. I fully believe that BP must be hold legally responsible for all of this but the first thing we have to do is STOP the oil!

And the truth begins to dawn on all of us: Obama has no more idea how to work his way out of the economic mess into which his policies have plunged us than he does about how to clean up the oil spill that is destroying our southern coastline.

Both the financial crisis and the oil come ever closer to our shores — one from the east and the other from the south — and, between them, they loom as a testament to the incompetence of our government and of its president.

I was just a kid during Jimmy Carter’s presidency but I do remember sitting with my dad in long lines at the gas station, often waiting for hours to full up our old wood paneled station wagon. I don’t want my kids to look back and have to say “when I was a kid we paid $8.00 a gallon for gas! Boy, those were the good ole days.” We need to hold BP and other accountable while investigating new oil resources and alternative energy to become energy independent.

Military Power? Yes we are!

I find it amazing that President Obama is making statements about the United States military force as if it were a burden. Sarah Palin wrote a spot on Facebook note today:

Asked this week about his faltering efforts to advance the Middle East peace process, President Obama did something remarkable. In front of some 47 foreign leaders and hundreds of reporters from all over the world, President Obama said that “whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.”

She goes on to state:

Whether we like it or not? Most Americans do like it. America’s military may be one of the greatest forces for good the world has ever seen, liberating countless millions from tyranny, slavery, and oppression over the last 234 years. As a dominant superpower, the United States has won wars hot and cold; our military has advanced the cause of freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan and kept authoritarian powers like Russia and China in check.

Isn’t it interesting that the liberal media try to tell us that Sarah Palin is not fit to be president but yet they willingly drool all over Obama.

The truth is this: by his actions we see a president who seems to be much more comfortable with an American military that isn’t quite so dominant and who feels the need to apologize for America when he travels overseas. Could it be a lack of faith in American exceptionalism? The fact is that America and our allies are safer when we are a dominant military superpower – whether President Obama likes it or not.

Bravo Bristol!

As the mother of a teenage boy, I know how hard it is to talk about sex. I applaud Bristol for choosing to talk publicly about the choices she has made. Bristol’s involvement with the Candie’s Foundation has led to a round of media interviews this week about the new PSA she recorded.

I was glad to see that Bristol was given a fair interview on the Today Show on NBC. Bristol and Candie’s Foundation founder, Neil Cole, sat down this morning to discuss the point behind the new PSA. Bristol was very articulate and to the point, that abstinence is what is right for her but that she wants to encourage other teens to pause and think before having sex to prevent unplanned/unwanted pregnancy. You can watch the interview here.

Great job Bristol! Keep up the great work you are doing for you and your son. Tripp will grown up knowing how much he is loved by your actions.

The understudy is now the STAR – Updated

I have to say that Obama’s administration has affected me in more ways then I ever could have imagined. I am having to work three jobs at this point just to make ends meet and each day that is becoming more and more difficult. What keeps me going is watching what Sarah Palin has been able to do in Washington D.C. She has the main stream media and the Democrats running scared and she likes it! I have not been able to blog in awhile but I ran across an article today that I just had to write about.

In today’s Washington Post, Dan Balz wrote a great article entitled “McCain understudy Sarah Palin is now the star”. You can read the entire article here. I was surprised and excited to read this article because it really demonstrates how far Sarah Palin has come since the 2008 election. Mr. Balz writes:

John McCain and Sarah Palin were back together again Friday. His presidential campaign was floundering when he first reached out to her. Now, facing a challenge from within his party as he seeks reelection to the Senate, McCain has turned to her again to help bail him out. But what a difference.

Their national campaign together ended badly for both, topped by a flurry of leaks dumping on the former Alaska governor and, since then, nasty accusations between the senator’s camp and hers over the conduct of it. Whatever happens now, the reappearance of McCain and Palin on the same stage illustrates how much things have changed since 2008.

Just think back to all the that Sarah has done in two short years: she secured a gas pipeline for the state of Alaska; wrote a best selling novel; spoke out against the health care reform bill and cause Congress to make changes merely by voicing her concerns on her Facebook page. Most of all, Sarah has given millions of Americans a voice and this is what Mr. Balz was able to portray.

For starters, the understudy is now the star. A majority of Americans may think Palin is not qualified to be president, but the GOP faithful love her, as does cable television. Cable news was fixed on Palin as she delivered her introduction of McCain at a rally in Tucson on Friday afternoon. Minutes after McCain took the microphone, they cut away from the rally for other news. …[she described the current atmosphere in D.C. created by the media] in describing as “B.S. coming from the mainstream media lately about us inciting violence.”

“Don’t let the conversation be diverted,” she told the crowd. “Don’t let a distraction like that get you off track.”

Well done Mr. Balz, well done.

**Update

This was the weekend of praise for Sarah Palin from some of her usual critics. David Catanese of Politico wrote a nice artile entitled “Palin top draw in reunion with McCain”. In this article Mr. Catanese admits:

No losing vice presidential candidate in recent memory has eclipsed the popularity of their running mate so rapidly. And even though the rally attendees may help send McCain back to the Senate for another six years, for many of them, Palin is the vessel who carries their hopes for the future.

Cindy McCain even subtly acknowledged the proverbial elephant in the room at Friday’s rally in Tucson. “You have come today, I know, most of all to see my husband,” she said, seemingly trying to convince herself and the audience of her own statement. “But I know you’ve also come to see Sarah as well,” she went on, triggering sustained applause.

Finally, everything Sarah supporters have known is rising to the surface for all to see!
