Why the surprise?

leave a comment »

The bird-watching community in Chicago is afraid that the Obama Presidential Center will ruin Jackson Park as the habitat for many of the 300 bird species they enjoy studying.   The lady quoted in the article says that  the project  has gone from a library to a center,  which is not only true,  but also gives you a pretty good idea of how Chicago politics works, and what an arrogant lout His Oneness is.

But these people know Chicago,  and they gave us Obama,  so why are they the least surprised that the grifter they helped raise is demanding more and more and doesn’t care about disrupting the birds’ lives or those of the humans who so enjoy watching them?

Trump jamboree…

leave a comment »

The Boy Scouts always invite the sitting President to their National  Jamboree.  Barack Obama never went a single time,  though he did send a video message  once.  Trump just attended his first and received a  fine welcome  from the 40,000 or so attendees.

I have my problems with the idiots who control the national Boy Scout organization,  but at least the boys have the right ideas,  even though their enthusiastic response caused some on the Left to liken the event to the Hitler youth  rallies.

UPDATE:  The press  has now  picked up the Hitler youth references.   Would someone please explain to me how this is supposed to make the general public trust big media again?   As John Hinderaker points out,  liberals believe in nothing in the Boy Scout creed and have spent decades trying to bankrupt and destroy the organization by forcing it to accept gay leaders.   A good Boy Scout is the very opposite of a modern liberal.

Pence hits the right notes…

The lede in  this piece  sums it all up so well.   I can’t claim to actually be happy about voting for Donald Trump,  but his selection of Pence as his VP makes me feel a bit better.

Public apology game…

leave a comment »

I could not agree more with Karol Markowicz  regarding  the pathetic  —  and veering towards dangerous  —  overuse of the calls for public apology.  I’m sick of politicians employing it to score points,  of Hollywood elites trying to gain public sympathy with it,  and a host of others trotting it out to avoid answering or asking tough questions.

If you have something for which you need to apologize,  say you’re sorry,  sincerely,  right the wrong,  then shut up about it.   Most people demanding an apology are themselves guilty of doing many things for which they should apologize.   Hillary Clinton springs to mind here.   Others,  like Barack Obama,  are guilty of apologizing without cause.   Of course,  His Oneness was apologizing to the world for America, instead of apologizing to Americans and the world for having failed utterly as a president on every front.   All irritate me equally at this point.   Grow up,  people!

Santa Bush, Scrooge Obama…

leave a comment »

For the eight years of his presidency,  the family of George W. Bush never went further than Camp David during the Christmas season,  until the day AFTER Christmas,  thereby allowing Secret Service,  White House staff,  journalists,  and others to spend Christmas Day with their families.

Every year the Obama family jets off to Hawaii well before Christmas,  so Christmas with family and friends is out for many of those people.  The Obamas feel so entitled that they need not be considerate of others,  which is why they are so often late for events.   The Bush family was rarely late for anything at all,  and this is but one example of the consideration  they showed for the people whose lives were affected by their travels.

Class does indeed tell,  and if historians are truthful,  the Obama Administration will be known as one of power and cunning and ruthlessness and corruption,  but utterly bereft of class.

Carter beats cancer…

leave a comment »

I suppose I should be glad that Pres. Jimmy Carter  appears to  have beaten his brain cancer,  but the truth is that I care very little.    He was a horrible president,  and a rather miserable excuse for a man,  very intelligent,  but full of petty insecurities and spitefulness.    Yes,  he has done a lot of good work for Habitat for Humanity,  but he had a great deal to make up for because of his failed presidency.

The current occupant of the Oval Office can not live long enough to atone for the damage he causes daily,  nor will he find a charitable cause he considers worthy enough of his time and effort.   I imagine he is busy studying how Bill and Hillary set up the Clinton Foundation so that he can create a similar slush fund for his own family.   With that in mind,  the United Nations should prove a fertile hunting ground for him,  since it is already a bastion of corruption and cronyism.

Remember when…

Deval Patrick was going to be the new Barack Obama?   Well,  he became Governor of Massachusetts,  and it turns out he  is just  like His Oneness,  secretive, obstructionist,  and corrupt.
