More of the Ridiculous

Here comes the orator! With his flood of words, and his drop of reason." --Benjamin Franklin

A few of the more ridiculous comments flowing from the DC Swamp this week that will certainly create a chuckle.


Lies and statistics: "[I]n this budget, we have made the tough choices necessary to cut our deficit in half by the end of my first term -- even under the most pessimistic estimates." --President Barack Obama, who doubled the budget deficit before he could halve it

Says the pot to the kettle: "[O]ne of the things that I'm trying to break is a pattern in Washington where everybody is always looking for somebody else to blame." --Barack Obama
Mentally challenged: "I bowled a 129. ... It's like -- it was like Special Olympics or something." --Barack Obama making fun of the Special Olympics on "The Tonight Show"

Pick socialism: "[W]e need not choose between a chaotic and unforgiving capitalism and an oppressive government-run economy. That is a false choice that will not serve our people or any people." --Barack Obama

Regulatory Commissars: "I think the most important thing that we can do is make sure that we put in a bunch of financial regulatory mechanisms to prevent companies like an AIG holding the rest of us hostage. Because that's- ahh- that's the real problem." --Barack Obama

This week's "Quid Pro Homo" Award: "At some point, [the Defense of Marriage Act] is going to have to go to the United States Supreme Court. I wouldn't want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has too many votes on this current court." --Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), an open homosexual **Scalia has more than one vote?

Global warmism: "When we talk about drilling, the new thing we have to think about is the Arctic. There is a dangerous irony occurring. We are drilling, burning oil, sending CO2 up into the atmosphere, creating global warming -- and it's melting the Arctic making it possible for people to drill. Now there is this gold rush to start punching oil wells in a place we just desecrated because of global warming. That's one place we have to get a new moratorium where there hasn't been one before, because there has always been ice there before." --Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA)

Vocabulary police: "This Administration prefers to avoid using the term 'Long War' or 'Global War on Terror' [GWOT]. Please use 'Overseas Contingency Operation.'" --email from Dave Riedel of the Office of Security Review

And the Winner is:

"The kids love to say SheetzuCacaPoopoo. Well, that was the key. But, the book is really about Barack Obama. Okay? Let me explain. ... The dog -- Max is in trouble. They send him to obedience school, okay? When he's in obedience school is when he becomes Barack. He becomes a community organizer. And he organizes the big dogs around the little dogs. 'Cause at first, the big dogs, also known as the Republicans, don't like him. See? And so, he finds ways, pragmatically, to help the big dogs. ... They can reach itches for them. They can go underneath to get to spots. They can scare the cats away. And so, he becomes popular. And everybody loves each other. ... It's all about pragmatism and change, and trying to find a solution in your situation, which is Barack Obama." --Joy Behar of "The View" promoting her new children's book **Well, SheetzuCacaPoopoo IS the perfect name...

Well, Geeeez . . . Joy Behar poisoning the minds of children isn’t an entirely new leftist strategy. Public schools have been doing this for the past sixty years. Besides, every committed communist knows that a slice of moldy bread is more attractive to moronic voters than their God-given right to freedom from oppressive government. I give you “Sue” as the most illustrative example.

Ticker,

An impressive collection. I can honestly say that on all counts, save for the need to regulate AIG et al, these comments strike me as totally off-base.

And that last one by Joy Behar is nothing short of astounding . . .

cacapoopoo is right.

I'm going to be ill...

Joy may be the first to volunteer at Obama's youth rallys...

Tick,

It has come to my attention that Obama, great orator that he is, surrounds himself with other great orators.

Just look at Treas Sec Timothy Geithner: when he speaks up, the whole world takes notice – especially the money markets! Then, just as with Obama, Geithner the G.O. must go back and explain what he "really" meant so that catastrophe does not ensue.

Birds of a feather, and all that . . .

Ticker, there is a link on our site to a very interesting article putting forth a possible explanation as to how people choose their political parties. Perhaps controversial, but definitely thought-provoking. Just in case you're interested.

Thanks Logistician. I picked it up and read it from the reference on Brenda's and on Jeff's sites.
I'll put a link on here shortly.
