An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 19 January 2010
Yep! Once again, we are off on an adventure. Right now, we are sitting in a hotel in Memphis, right outside the Memphis International Airport! Oddly enough, it’s actually kind of quite. I would have thought that we’d be hearing planes going over head on a regular basis. Nope. The only time we heard one was when we were outside. Cool.
I have to get out of bed at 5:30am? Oh Lord, give me strength! But since we have to be at the airport no later than 7:30, to catch our 9:30 flight, it’s probably a good idea. Yes, we have a wake up call, and YES, I WILL be in bed, asleep by at least 10pm! Keep yer fingers crossed.
Once we arrive in Jamaica, from previous experience, it’ll probably be 6 or 7 by the time we get to our destination, Ocho Rios, unless of course, they’ve finished that road they were working to expand 4 years ago.
So, you see, I’ll be out of touch all day tomorrow. Now, if I have any sense at all, I won’t be doing a whole lot of posting for the next two weeks. Well, unless, of course, it’s raining. :( Naturally, I’ll be posting some pictures, mostly to irritate the bejabbers outta Chris up there in the tundra! Heh. I couldn’t tell ya why it’s so much fun to annoy her….it just is.
Obama: Our Cold and Distant President
by J. D. Longstreet
Remember how the press was insisting during the 2008 presidential campaign, that Obama was sooo coooool? Oh, yeah, “cool, man, cool!”
Got news for you. He ain’t “cool.” He’s “C O L D!” And he is “distant” to boot.
We tried to tell you the man was, and is, a Narcissist. EVERYTHING is about him. He is cold toward everyone else because no one besides him, of course, has any value.
I’ve noticed recently in his speeches, he refers to “MY” national Security Team. “My” director of whatever department…. and so on. The emphasis is on “MY”. And that is the way our president is. Hey, THIS is the guy with his finger on the Nuclear Button!
OHMYGAWED! What have we done??
Given what looks like the impending loss of the party’s Senate supermajority, Democrats have reason to be down in the dumps about healthcare reform. But if that’s the way House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s feeling, she’s not showing it publicly.
“Let’s remove all doubt, we will have healthcare one way or another,” Pelosi said during an event in San Francisco on Monday. “Certainly the dynamic would change depending on what happens in Massachusetts. Just the question about how we would proceed. But it doesn’t mean we won’t have a health care bill.”
Dear Lord! The arrogance of that woman is just astounding! When at LEAST 56% of the voting public say no, and 44% are saying HELL NO, wouldn’t you think an elected official would listen to their bosses? If your boss, you know, the one that pays your salary, tells you not to do something, would you just go right on ahead and do it anyway? Odds are, no…. unless you wanted to get fired.
Well, Mzzzzzzzzz Pelosi, as far as I’m concerned…..YOU ARE FIRED! I will be working really hard to ensure a Democrat defeat come November, and your position as Speaker of the House will, hopefully, go to someone who has the good sense to remember just WHO he, or she, works for, and you, my dear, will crawl back under that rock where you belong!
Big shocker there, eh? All extreme far far left libs hate Fox News. Why should Barack Hussein Obama be any different?
….shove back HARD! For those the followers of Karl Marx, and Mao Tse Tong, the change that has been shoved down our throats might be a step in the right direction. For the rational, freedom loving folks, which by the way, IS the majority, this isn’t what we bargained for at all! It’s not just the health care fiasco, it’s the whole ‘road to socialism’ we object to. One can only pray, and encourage the voters of Massachusetts, to help put a stop to the total destruction of our nation.
One year ago, President Barack Obama delivered his inaugural address at the foot of the Capitol, laid out an agenda of “big plans” for his administration, and chided “cynics” who “fail to understand that the ground has shifted beneath them.” One year later, as voters head to the ballot box in Massachusetts, it seems that the ground very well may have shifted under President Obama.
And that ground shift might spell trouble for the President’s health care magnum opus.
In a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll released yesterday, President Obama’s approval ratings have “plummeted to 50%, down from 64% after he took office,” giving him an average 57% approval rating for the year and placing Obama “nearly last in the ranking of former presidents’ first-year job approval averages.”
