    Default Mission Accomplished?

    "The thing I admire about the rat tail is that it takes commitment. It's not like one day you just decide you want one, you have to grow out that bad boy and you have to repeatedly convince the hairdresser to trust you because it's a great idea."

    Maher nails it.

    On his HBO show Real Time Bill Maher posed the question to Republicans, “How many Muslims does a black guy have to kill in one weekend before crackers climb down off his ass?”

    Bill Maher opened up with, “Now that it’s become clear that the Republicans, the fiscally conservative strong on defense party are neither fiscally conservative nor strong on defense, they have to tell us what exactly it is they’re good at. It’s not defense. 9/11 happened on your watch, and you retaliated by invading the wrong country, and you lost a 10 year game of hide and seek with Osama Bin Laden, and you’re responsible for running up most of the debt, which more than anything makes us weak.”
    Maher continued, “You’re supposed to be the party with the killer instinct, but it was a Democrat who put a bomb in Gadhafi’s bedroom, and bullet in Bin Laden’s eye like Moe Green. Raising the question how many Muslims does a black guy have to kill in one weekend before crackers climb down off his ass? Let’s look at some facts. Now for you Fox News viewers feel free to turn down the sound until the flashing facts light at the bottom of your screen disappears.”
    He then rolled out the facts, “When Bill Clinton left office in 2001, the Congressional Budget Office predicted that by the end of the decade we would have paid off the entire debt and had $2 trillion surplus. Instead we have a ten and a half trillion dollar public debt and the different in those two numbers is mostly because Republicans put tax cuts for the rich, free drugs for the elderly, and two wars on the layaway plan, and then bailed on the check, so so much for fiscal responsibility.”
    Bill Maher then destroyed the idea that Republicans are strong in national security, “But hey, at least they still had the defense thing right? The public still believed Republicans were tougher when it came to hunting down dark skinned foreigners with funny sounding names. But Bush had 7 years to get Osama, he didn’t. He got Wesley Snipes. Only 6 months after 9/11 Bush said he didn’t spend that much time on Bin Laden that he was no longer concerned about him. Just as he wasn’t before 9/11 when he blew off that mysterious inscrutable memo titled Bin Laden determined to attack inside the United States. In under a year Bush went from who gives a shit, to wanted dead or alive, back to who gives a shit.”
    After calling out the Republicans for criticizing Obama for during the 2008 campaign for saying that he would go into Pakistan to get Bin Laden, and asked Republicans, “Why can’t you just admit that Barack Obama is one efficient, steely nerved, multitasking, black ninja gansta president? In one week he produced his birth certificate, comforted disaster victims, swung by Florida to say hey to Gabby Giffords, did stand up at the Correspondents’ Dinner, and then personally repelled into in Bin Laden’s lair and put a Chinese star though his throat without waking up any of his 13 wives. That’s how it went down, I saw it on MSNBC.”
    The truth is that the 30% of America that Bill Maher mentioned will never support Obama no matter what he does. Unlike Democrats who did rally behind President Bush after 9/11, many Republicans can only view the Obama presidency with bitter jaundiced eyes that are only capable of seeing all the vast conspiracies that explain why they were not able to keep the presidency, which they believe they are entitled to.
    Maher had it right. Obama had an incredible week last week, but within 48 hours the right was back hard at work trying to delegitimize his accomplishments while at the same time taking credit for themselves. What is absolutely eating the Obama haters up inside right now is that he got Bin Laden. Since 9/11 Republicans have treated the issue of national security as their birthright, but Obama showed them what a real commitment to keeping America secure looks like.
    Barack Obama is one bad ass gangsta president. He is everything Republicans wish they were, but don’t have the guts to be.

    Hard to fathom how low you have sunk to be quoting Maher. Bet you can't get enough of the propaganda spewed by those other bastions of socialism...Soros, Olberman, (bet it killed you when they took his program off eh?) an that other fatass Hugo Chavez loving communist, Michael Moore.

    Thanks for hurrying your name to my IGNORE list, Hugh. There actually was a time I thought you might have a sane thought, but you prove the addage...you are known by the company you keep.

    My post was not specifically directed at you. That's why I did not quote you. See my sig line. JD

    doesn't that start to hurt after a while?

    I already answered your rhetorical question.

    And I DID quote you, for obvious reasons, if you don't get it, let me know!!!

    The last word is yours.

    (curious, what "reasoning" did you use quoting Maher??)

    Maher has never nailed anything in his life other than being an accomplished egotistical, far left idiot who jabs the right to make a living. What's your excuse, Hugh?

    Here's another one of his great comments.

    (Panelist Dinesh D'Souza mentioned that he didn't think the terrorists were "cowards," as George Bush had described them. Maher replied: "We have been the cowards. Lobbing cruise missiles from two thousand miles away. That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building. Say what you want about it. Not cowardly. You're right.")

    Seems like he had some respect for the terrorists and disrespect for our military and country.

    Disappointed in Oklahoma regards,
    I don't make a living giving jabs, Mike. I do it once and a while to counter other jabs coming from other perspectives on PP, because it is fun. The OP of this thread took a jab, I countered. Happens all the time here.

    rk gave a jab back.

    Then Bill gave a jab. Ya-hoo! I made his "ignore list".
    See how that works for you Bill?

    Stan and Mike have now quoted my
    post twice. 'Ignore' doesn't work. I've tried it myself.

    Someone will quote you in reply. The post still appears. If everyone 'ignores' everyone else, then I guess we all just post and talk to ourselves. Which, come to think, happens here a lot.


    The only true 'ignore', is to not respond. Ever notice how many threads Bill starts that do not get a single reply?

    http://www.retrievertraining.net/for...ad.php?t=70436


    Even rk blows him off. Now that is 'ignore' at work.

    If you truly want to 'ignore', than don't reply.

    Stan....so you don't think I'm angry or sullen....

    ...and keep on bangin' that wall.
