Please be joking

I love how last time I posted I talked about being more consistent in writing, and then a week went by without me doing anything here. I’m awesome like that.

So I’ll be starting off today with gaffes and appalling statements made by famous people! Yay! Let’s get started.

President Obama: “[The] nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it.”  Except it was Germany that invented it, not us. Oops!

Vice President Biden: “I’m embarassed, I don’t know the website number… I should have it in front of me…” I’ll steal Ace’s comment on this one: “Thank God we dodged that idiot Palin as VP, huh?”

And my personal favorite:

A Senior White House Official: “President Obama has accomplished more in 30 days than any president in modern history.” How high are these people, and what are they on? And where can I get some?

Best President Ever

I mean, in October, al Qaeda was “resurgent, stronger now than at any time since 2001.” But after only two weeks in office, it now comes out that al Qaeda is “decimated” to the point “that it is now possible to foresee a “complete al-Qaida defeat.” Man, he is so good. Why didn’t we just let him take over back in November?

Wait, the reason that al Qaeda is in disarray is due to air strikes over the past six months plus? Well, that doesn’t matter either. See, Obama’s secretly been President for months, you just didn’t know it yet.

A couple days ago the AFP reported, “US President Barack Obama has already used experts within the last few months to hold high-level but discreet talks with both Iran and Syria, organizers of the meetings told AFP.” That’s funny, because in December he was very insistent to point out that he wasn’t President yet, and there was only one President at a time…

“I will continue to insist that, when it comes to foreign affairs, it is particularly important to emphasize that there is one president at a time,” Obama said Monday. “There are delicate negotiations taking place right now and we can’t have two voices coming out of the United States when you have so much at stake.”

Man, it’s a good thing he’s soooo awesome or else this might be a little alarming, don’t you think?

Is this just incompetence, or is it outright treason? Sometimes it’s hard to tell anymore.

The Obama administration has asked the military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff to cut the Pentagon’s budget request for the fiscal year 2010 by more than 10 percent — about $55 billion — a senior U.S. defense official tells FOX News.

In a time of war, our new president has decided that it’d be a good idea to give $314 billion dollars to Democrat special interest groups and constituents, and then slash the budget for national defense – including severely scaling back funding for ballistic missile defense, when we have nations full of radicalist nutjobs like Iran and North Korea getting their hands on nukes.

Let me repeat: in a time of war, he is cutting the legs out from under our troops, and deliberately hampering our efforts to establish a secure defense.

That’s insanity, borderlining on malicious intent. There is no shred of responsibility in the plan he is proposing, and the very idea that it’s being taken seriously is an affront to common sense. The idea that Barack Hussein Obama is the one in charge of this, the one pushing it and applauding it while his throng of sycophantic doe-eyed worshippers cheer on his every move is disgusting.

Call your senator, call your representative. And if you’re not fortunate enough to have a representative in this sham of a government who can understand simple concepts like “don’t sabotage our military,” then start telling your friends, family, co-workers, whoever you can find what kind of madness is going on in our nation’s capital. If enough people know and care that our president is working to kneecap us, then maybe – just maybe – we can do something about it.

Hey, maybe he could be our first black president to get impeached.
