Spring Break

The blog will be taking a hiatus, as most of us are taking a well-deserved spring break. I leave you with this video of our Doofus in Chief.

And this, too.

Remember This?

Remember how liberals said that George W. Bush was intellectually incurious?

Remember how liberals said that Obama was the first "wired president," the one who understood those dang InterWebs?


I know that foreign policy (or domestic policy, for that matter) is not the strong suit of Obama, but wow. Not only did you give the #2 Most Powerful Man in the Free World a set of DVDs, you gave him DVDs that he can't even watch!

You'd think that Mr. Internet President, Mr. Intellectually Curious, would have had someone CHECK TO SEE if American-made DVDs could play on a British DVD player. But noooooooooo.

Oh, I got more. Remember when liberals said that the "adults were back in charge"? Yeah, I remember that.

"The adults are back in charge"? More like "it's Amateur Hour at the Baker Center Front Room.

The sad part? 62% of America is sucking up every last bit of Obamarama Kool-Aid they can, and see nothing wrong with letting the inmates run the asylum. As long as they read a teleprompter well and look good on TV, that's what matters, right?

In a news flash you won't find elsewhere, I have a bulletin.

Speaking before the Ohio University College Republicans last night, candidate for the Republican nomination for OH Attorney General, Dave Yost announced that if he survived the primaries, he pledged to not take campaign donations from law firms that accept special contract money from the state. He said he would concentrate on "developing relationships" with voters, using social networks and pre-existing relationships between people, as opposed to spending lots of money on TV ads. He said that these days, few people watch commercials, due to the use of DVR and other time-shifting technologies.

Remember folks, you heard it here first.

Latecomers to the Obvious Party...

Scientists recently reported that the Earth has developed a small eccentricity in its orbit. NASA experts believe that this orbital anomaly is caused by William F. Buckley spinning in his grave at supersonic speeds. The Department of Energy plans to use this source of perpetual energy to reduce American power plants' dependency on burning coal.

The money quote:

My old and dear friend Peter Robinson (we single-handedly won the Cold War together as Bush I speechwriters at the White House in the early 1980s) takes me to task Friday on for having recognized--finally, after all these weeks--that President Obama is a hard-left ideologue big-spender. He also congratulates David Gergen and David Brooks for similarly having come to their senses.

Robinson was much gentler on Brooks and me than Rush Limbaugh was. This week on his radio show he blasted the two of us in an Oscar Wilde mode, quipping, "Duh!"

Let's take a quick look at the tape. What I said in my Daily Beast endorsement of Obama last October was as follows:

"President Obama will (I pray, secularly) surely understand that traditional left-politics aren't going to get us out of this pit we've dug for ourselves. If he raises taxes and throws up tariff walls and opens the coffers of the DNC to bribe-money from the special interest groups against whom he has (somewhat disingenuously) railed during the campaign trail, then he will almost certainly reap a whirlwind that will make Katrina look like a balmy summer zephyr."

So much for my secular prayers. Maybe I should have tried the old-fashioned kind instead. For now, he is raising taxes and proposing Brobdingnagian government spending and expansion. It would thus seem that I was wrong about him. [...] But that's not what mainly bugs Robinson, who goes on to say that 'a deep, recurring pattern of American life has asserted itself yet again: the cluelessness of the elite. Buckley, Gergen and Brooks all attended expensive private universities, then spent their careers moving among the wealthy and powerful who inhabit the seaboard corridor running from Washington to Boston. If any of the three strolled uninvited into a cocktail party in Georgetown, Cambridge or New Haven, the hostess would emit yelps of delight. Yet all three originally got Obama wrong.'

First let me say, being a well-brought-up elite, I would never 'stroll uninvited' into a cocktail party in Georgetown. We elites don't do that.

Note to Chris "In Name Only" Buckley:

It's nice that you see the truth now, after a few months. However, lots of people who aren't super-psuedo-intellectuals like you saw the truth from the get-go. Thanks a lot, jerk. You're doing your father proud... NOT.

Belated Friday Funn-ay

Sign of the Times, Part X of Y

Oh hey, look, White House Press Secretary Joseph Goebbels Robert Gibbs is taking special time to tear down another person who dares criticize Teh One's policies. First Gibbslet ripped on Rush Limbaugh, then he ripped on CNBC's Rick Santelli, now he's going after Jim Cramer, of Mad Money fame. Is this the job of the Press Secretary, to go around whining and scoffing when one of the media take the red pill and wake up from the Obamatrix?

In somewhat related newz, Spendulus Prime now has Happy Fun Democracy Stickers, to be slapped on government projects that are being funded by future generations.

Michelle Malkin has some more apropos logos for Spendulus Prime:

Isn't life just grand?

Back From CPAC!

We (and by we, I mean the Ohio University College Republicans) just got back from CPAC, also known as the Conservative Political Action Conference, which was held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. May I just say that it was amazing!

I have gone there with OUCRs for three years now, and each time I've gone, it's been a lot of fun. Not only do conservatives from across the country (and world, as there were a few people who had traveled to DC from the frosty realms of Canada, or as I like to call it, America's Hat) meet to hear conservatives such as Michelle Malkin, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-GA), the Hon. Mitt Romney, the Hon. Newt Gingrich, Tony Blakely, and the Great One himself... El Rushbo, Rush Lim Attendance was astounding, and most of the events and speaking engagements were at maximum capacity. Honestly, there were lines extending out of the ballroom hallway and into the rest of the hotel. It was very, very crazy to see that many conservatives and Republicans trying to see speakers such as Ann Coulter, Mitt Romney, and El Rushbo.

Michelle Malkin, a personal favorite of mine, helped drop the Washington DC remix of the Tea Party USA movement against irresponsible and irrational government spendulus spending, with the help of PajamasTV and Law & Order's Fred Thompson.

Joe the Plumber was at CPAC, and more than a few OU College Republicans got his autograph and their pictures with him, myself included. Nice!

Some event noticias: The Athens County Lincoln Day Dinner will be at the American Legion on March 12, 2009. This year, the speaker for the event will be Josh Mandel, he is the state representative from the 17th district, and is an Iraq War veteran, having served two tours of duty in The Sandbox. He is an up-and-coming star in Ohio state politics, and is only in his mid-20s, just a few years older than your average OU student.
