Superficial and whiny
Did his supporters listen to his speech or even hear what he said? The left’s intolerance raises its ugly head again. Accusations of “racism”, “hostage taking”, “suicide bombers”, are making the rounds in some very notable publications and on the blogs. It is beyond pathetic and deserves the disdain it’s frequently greeted with by those of us who see the wrongs being done in our name. So, fair warning, if you come here to call names or act like knuckledragging neanderthals your comments will not get past moderation.
From the well known Mediaite;
Bill O’Reilly tonight highlighted findings that liberals on the internet tend to be less tolerant of opposing views than conservatives. Democrat Kirsten Powers agreed with this sentiment, relaying from her own personal experiences engaging with liberals and conservatives, surmising that the former tend to be less tolerant because they are used to controlling the media
O’Reilly said the study finds liberals are far more sensitive about criticism, and a significant percentage of them have ended online relationships due to political differences. Powers explained that after getting out of her own “Democratic bubble,” she noticed that conservatives tend to be more open to hearing opposing viewpoints than liberals.
So, all you unreasoning, name calling, absolutists who troll with the superficial whining that only comes from the left, do as your Preezy tells you. Stop acting like a bunch of knuckledraggers or whiny scorekeepers. Ideas need to stand or fall on their own merit.
You own Obama and everything his presidency has wrought. Please stop comparing him to successful Republicans. Your hypocrisy is only slightly more annoying than the credit you give our intelligence.
The Brain Trust at NBC is in a snit over Prince Harry and his matter of fact statements on killing the Taliban.
MATT LAUER: Prince Harry speaking out in some interviews from Afghanistan recorded before he just left the country after a tour of duty there. He talks about his missions, the missions he went on where he was fired upon by the Taliban and returned fire, killing some members of the Taliban. And he takes it kind of matter-of-factly. I know you’ve heard the interviews. What do you think about it? Is it okay?
STAR JONES: Matt, I was really confused as to why the Palace would permit the Prince to give such an interview. Why do you need to antagonize the Taliban?
NANCY SNYDERMAN: Well, I’m sort of – I thought he jumped the shark when he was shown playing video games…
SNYDERMAN: …and then it was, “Oh my God, we killed people.”
Antagonize the Taliban? Wonder how “antagonistic” they think drone strikes are or, BO’s personal “kill list”? Do these ‘brilliant’ leftists think no one is being killed in this war? Or, would they just prefer to live in a bubble of suspended belief agonizing over “what must the Taliban or Al Qaeda think of us” for saying “we killed people”? Well, they can stop worrying. The UN is on it!
Ben Emmerson QC, a UN special rapporteur, will reveal the full scope of his review which will include checks on military use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in UK operations in Afghanistan, US strikes in Pakistan, as well as in the Sahel region of Africa where the conflict in Mali has erupted. It will also take evidence on Israeli drone attacks in Palestinian territories.
About 20 or 30 strikes – selected as representative of different types of attacks – will be studied to assess the extent of any civilian casualties, the identity of militants targeted and the legality of strikes in countries where the UN has not formally recognised there is a conflict.
Oh my, looks as if Preezy could be accused of war crimes.
Emmerson has previously suggested some drone attacks – particularly those known as “double tap” strikes where rescuers going to the aid of a first blast have become victims of a follow-up strike – could possibly constitute a “war crime”.
One of the best ideas to come out of the House. “No budget, No pay”
Senate Budget Committee chair Patty Murray, D-Wash., tried to take the initiative by promising to pass a budget this year in a statement released before the ‘no budget, no pay’ vote took place.
“Senate Democrats plan to move on a budget resolution regardless of whether the House rolls this issue into their short-term bill to increase the debt limit,” Murray said.
Republicans welcomed the announcement, but aren’t getting their hopes up just yet. “We’ve heard talk like this before,” one Senate aide told The Examiner. “Remember last year, then-Chairman Conrad promised a budget mark-up on Fox News Sunday, but within a week he had abruptly pulled the plug. Until they actually pass a budget, they have not passed a budget.”
Threaten the Senate critters the same way BO threatens our seniors and servicemen and women……….twice!
Speaking of the useless ploys used by Dems to secure votes, looks as if it hasn’t been working out well in some states. The bywords are “qualifications” and “issues”. Something the big L left doesn’t seem to get, or, those imbibing the Kool-Aid.
“We do need to have a good team, and we do need to have a good ticket. We’ve had too many go-it-alone candidacies that just weren’t able to do it on their own,” [Democrat consultant Ed Espinoza] said. “Coordination should focus on things like who can raise money, who can build structure and who can build votes. Too often we say, ‘Well, this person’s brown, so they can win brown votes, and this person’s a woman, so she can win women’s votes.’”
Maybe Dems need to stop salivating and thinking in terms of gender and race. It’s getting old really fast.
