An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

I’m seriously glad we didn’t get all that they were predicting, if this is any indication of what could have been.

Mir Hossein Mousavi lost the vote to incumbent president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad but has branded the election as a “dangerous charade”.
Opposition supporters say more than 100 political activists have been arrested in Iran following yesterday’s controversial election result.
Mohammad Reza Khatami, the brother of ex-president Mohammad Khatami, is among those being held, leading reformist Mohammad Ali Abtahi told the Reuters news agency.
There have also been clashes in Tehran between protesters and police, with some journalists who filmed the violence being briefly detained.
Tens of thousands of pro-Ahmadinejad supporters have marched through the capital’s streets.
I wonder how much Ahmadinnerjacket paid his “supporters”?
I’ve been watching all this from the sidelines, not commenting here what I thought of the doings in Iran. Well, I’ve broke my silence now, haven’t I.
If anyone truly believes that this farce of an election was legitimate, I’ve got some swamp land…. Eventually, people get fed up with being oppressed, and they will react, as we are now seeing happening in Iran.
Then our very own Obummer said this on Friday:
“We are excited to see what appears to be a robust debate taking place in Iran,” Obama told reporters when asked about the Iranian election during an event at the White House.
“Whoever ends up winning the election in Iran, the fact there has been a robust debate hopefully will advance our ability to engage them in new ways,” he said.
Is that what he calls this? A “robust debate”? Does this guy even live on the same planet? It takes two people to make a debate, and from what I’ve been reading, with the ‘Booboo pretty much controlling all forms of media, not much debating has been going on. The statement from the self proclaimed victor that the current clashes “are not important” speaks volumes about the mindset of the ruling ‘class’ of Iran. Evidently, he doesn’t believe it was possible for him to really be defeated. Personally, I think he was! I pray for the freedom yearning of Iran to succeed in their quest, but when you have the thought police in charge, I question if this possible.
Watching all this from afar, I am wondering how our upcoming elections, 2010 and 2012, will play out. Will we, too, have riots in the streets? Will our so called elected officials go quietly when they are voted out of office?
Since Iran won’t allow international over seeing of it’s election, we may never know who really won the election. The Apology Tour 2009 in Cairo a couple of weeks ago evidently didn’t do much to influence the Iranian powers that be (Ayatollah Ali Khamenei), into allowing more freedom for the Iranians. Will they even give a flip if the U.S. rejects the results? Oddly enough….NO! Gee, go figure. They don’t care what Obummer says either. Hmmm…..
“Ballot” swiped from The Political Jungle.
Just a snippet:
He finishes and looks around the room for approval, and, on cue, everyone bursts into laughter.
“I LOVE IT when you tell the press that joke, sir,” Biden says, laughing and laughing and laughing.
In the corner, TOTUS still flashes FAIL! FAIL! FAIL! across his screen, and everyone still ignores him.
“Yeah, sometimes I can hardly contain myself,” the president says, beaming.
“Alright…alright…hold on now. Let’s get serious: It’s time to ask: WWJCD?”
“What would Jesus Christ do?” Gibbsy says, his mouth suddenly closed, the drool gone, his eyes wide, as if he’s just heard the craziest thing ever.
“NO!” The president shouts. “Gibbsy, how many times do I have to tell you? We don’t say that name anymore. WWJCD stands for: What Would Jimmy Carter Do?”
Protesters that were part of an angry mob that included many ACORN supporters nearly knocked New York state Sen. James Alesi, a Republican, down on the floor and spat in the face of his chief of staff, according to reports.
The protesters were reportedly upset that two Democratic senators decided to caucus with Republicans, a move that when finalized by the state Senate would hand Republicans control of it. Majority Democrats have shut down the chamber to prevent the transfer of power.
Meanwhile, Pennsylvania state Rep. Stephen Barrar, a Republican, is circulating a petition calling on his state’s attorney general to investigate ACORN.
Real class acts, those ACORN folks. I don’t care how bloomin’ “upset” you are, do you not behave in such a manner! Contrary to what the leftist moonbats might believe, the Dhimmicrats do NOT have all the answers, and the answers they do have are mostly wrong! So, if those two state senators were acting in the best interest of the people as a whole, then they should be respected for going with their conscience. Very few do these days, if they even have one. I’m starting to have my doubts.
Every single state AG should be investigating this feckless ‘organization’. I’d say the US one should to, but I’m fairly sure Holder already knows exactly what they are, and is actually in league with them, as is his boss, who is nothing more than an ACORN stooge himself.
After doing some searching, I found no evidence that the people were even arrested. Isn’t knocking someone down, and spitting at people, considered assault?
