Carter – What a Tool

April 20, 2008

Get Back to hammering nails not our Country

I guess once is not enough. Former President Carter just can’t get enough face time with the leadership of Hamas. So he met with them again while “in the region”. As a result of the first meeting in Cairo, the result that our Real State Department said would occur in fact did occur. Their concern was that Hamas would claim “Legitimacy” as a political entity should Carter meet with them…

The Hamas delegation in Cairo was headed by Gaza leaders Mahmoud Zahar and Said Siyam.
Zahar said Wednesday that Carter’s meetings with its leaders will boost the group’s legitimacy despite criticism by Israel and the U.S. government.
“This meeting is a message to those who don’t recognize Hamas’ legitimacy as a movement,” he said as he left for Egypt, according to Hamas’ Web site. (Full Story)

Thanks Jimmy, I guess the legacy as one of the Worst Presidents in the 20th Century is not enough, It seems that you are looking for the Daily Double and want to add “Worst Former President” of the 21st Century to your Resume of Failure. Please get back to using your tool belt to build houses, as apposed to being a tool for enemies of our country & Israel.

It\'s not just me...

Clinton Redux – Carl Bernstein’s View

April 13, 2008

1992 Clintons to 2008 Clintons - More of the same

Carl Bernstein asks- What will a Hillary Clinton presidency look like?

The answer by now seems obvious: It will look like her presidential campaign, which in turn looks increasingly like the first Clinton presidency.

Which is to say, high-minded ideals, lowered execution, half truths, outright lies (and imaginary flights), take-no prisoners politics, some very good policy ideas, a presidential spouse given to wallowing in anger and self-pity, and a succession of aides and surrogates pushed under the bus when things don’t go right. Which is to say, often…

In A Woman in Charge, I wrote about her ability to evolve, observable especially in the years before she met Bill Clinton and in the Senate: to learn from her mistakes. Events have proven me wrong on that count. (Full Story)

Well Sign Me UP! And this is from the guy who for the most part is sympathetic towards Hillary. I know it seems like a broken record or a repeating theme on this blog, but people really do not like Hillary. She is the type of person that throws someone under the bus, then stops the bus, backs it up to run them over again. America survived 8 years of Bill, we certainly do not need to tempt fate and go for another 4 more years of a nastier, $109,000,000 richer President Hillary Clinton. Besides, sequels tend to be very, very disappointing especially when the story line doesn’t change and the understudy is cast as the “Starr”. (That’s not a typo.)

No Friend to Israel… Read Your Bible Mr. Carter

April 13, 2008

What is it about the word Terrorists don\'t you understand?

Former President Jimmy Carter said he feels “quite at ease” about meeting Hamas militants over the objections of Washington because the Palestinian group is essential to a future peace with Israel.

Carter’s own mom, “Miss :Lillian” said it best… “When I look at my children,” she quipped, “I say, `Lillian, you should have stayed a virgin.’ ” (Link)

Seriously, I had no problem when he was banging nails and building houses for folks less fortunate, but he needs to be back in Plains Georgia and leave international relations to the current administration. He was arguably the WORST (Sorry Keith Olbermann) President in the last 100 years and for him to continue to embarrass our country just gets old. He has no class, no sense of propriety and no respect for the office he unfortunately held. Pick up you hammer, stop meeting with terrorists and go back to picking peanuts! But make sure you endorse BHO so we’ll feel even better about voting for John McCain as we pull the lever this November.

I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse… Genesis 12:3

ALGore – From Nobel to No Press

April 13, 2008

ALGore - No Questions That Will Make Me Look Bad Please

ALGore reportedly receives $100,000 for his speaking fee and other ridiculous perks as outlined in his typical speaking contract. “The Earth Has A Fever”, but apparently it’s ALGore who is hot under the collar when it comes to possibly having to answer questions about his Nobel Award Winning Global Warming Shtick. At his Keynote Speech at this years RSA Computer Security Conference, ALGore had as one of his conditions, that no members of the Press be allowed to hear him deliver the address. Way to Man-Up AL.

It’s plane to see that he is so unsure about the “SCIENCE” behind the “FACTS” he presents about Global warming that he is unwilling to face any potentially critical or embarrassing questions. So the man who wanted to be President won’t take questions from reporters who might be critical of what he says… I wonder if his agent could cut the same deal for President Bush?

“You Don’t Transfer Loyalty to a Dynasty”

April 13, 2008

Loyaal to Bill not Hill

“I was loyal,” Richardson says. “But I don’t think that loyalty is transferable to his wife…. You don’t transfer loyalty to a dynasty.” (Full Story)

As the mad rush to support BHO continues,(word is that Gore & Carter will soon join the BHO-Express) Gov. Richardson gave us an insight this past Tuesday into his reason for NOT backing Hillary. It’s simple, she’s no Bill Clinton. While conservatives have many reasons to fault the Clinton Presidency, as a man, I’m told, Bill Clinton is an engaging and rather personable fellow. Certainly in the area of morality, he is no poster child, but as a “regular guy” people like him. That is not the case with Hillary. They say opposites attract, and Bill & Hillary are a living example of that Old Wives Tail. (Pun Intended)

Hillary’s New China Pattern

April 7, 2008

No China Problem Then

  • It’s OK for President Bill Clinton to approve the export of radiation hardened computer chips to China in 1996.
  • According to the New York Times, Bill Clinton removed $2 billion in trade with China from national security scrutiny. Among the results: 77 supercomputers – capable of 13 billion calculations per second – that could scramble and unscramble secret data and design nuclear weapons. These were purchased by the Chinese without a peep stateside. At least some of them would be used by the Chinese military. (Full Story)
  • Feb. 12, 1998: As Bill Clinton ponders whether to sign another waiver allowing launch of a Loral satellite aboard a Chinese missile, National Security Adviser Sandy Berger sends him a memo saying the Justice Department `has cautioned that a national interest waiver in this case could have a significant adverse impact on any prosecution [of Loral] that might take place based on a pending investigation of export violation.’ (Congressional Record)
  • Hillary Accepts Chinese Immigrants Money- Dishwashers, waiters and others whose jobs and dilapidated home addresses seem to make them unpromising targets for political fundraisers are pouring $1,000 and $2,000 contributions into Clinton’s campaign treasury. In April, a single fundraiser in an area long known for its gritty urban poverty yielded a whopping $380,000. (Full Story)

But Today, Hillary wants President Bush to boycott the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in China this summer. She said in her press release:

The violent clashes in Tibet and the failure of the Chinese government to use its full leverage with Sudan to stop the genocide in Darfur are opportunities for Presidential leadership. These events underscore why I believe the Bush administration has been wrong to downplay human rights in its policy towards China. At this time, and in light of recent events, I believe President Bush should not plan on attending the opening ceremonies in Beijing, absent major changes by the Chinese government.

Why the change? Did China change markedly from 1996 when Bill had no problem giving them hi-tech chipsets? I don’t think so. Did the Satellites launched by China show something? Did the checks from the dishwashers bounce? Maybe Hillary just needed to pen something to distract the media from her campaign’s apPENNdectomy namely Mark Penn.

A Posion Penn Letter…

April 6, 2008

 The man Behind the Candidate who is behind

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Mark Penn, the pollster and senior strategist for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential bid, left the campaign Sunday after it was disclosed he met with representatives of the Colombian government to help promote a free trade agreement Clinton opposes.

“After the events of the last few days, Mark Penn has asked to give up his role as chief strategist of the Clinton Campaign,” campaign manager Maggie Williams said in a statement released Sunday. “Mark, and Penn, Schoen and Berland Associates, Inc. will continue to provide polling and advice to the campaign.”…  It was the second major departure of a Clinton campaign official this year. In February, Patti Solis Doyle stepped down as campaign manager and was replaced by Williams.

The role of a senior strategist is to find ways to help their candidate improve their position with voters not make the news be about themselves.  Mark Penn has had a habit of letting the media spotlight shine on him sometimes more than HRC, and this time, it resulted in a demotion.  Keep in mind, HRC has already paid Penn over $12,000,000 for his services, I’m sure his new position will cut his billing rate, I know we all hope he can survive on that new lower rate.

Remember, Mark Penn is the man behind the women who is behind Barack H. Obama and now he has taken a step back himself.  For the Clinton Campaign, I guess this is considered progress.

Ted Turner, Please Pass the Fava Beans

April 6, 2008

Hsnnibal Ted

As if there was any doubt that Ted Turner has made the leap from Captain Courageous to Captain Queeg (Humphrey BogartThe Caine Mutiny “Then there was the Strawberry incident”) He removed it this past week.

Only the people that don`t understand it think it`s going to — not doing it will be catastrophic. We`ll have eight degrees — we`ll be eight degrees hotter in 10 — not 10, but in 30 or 40 years. And basically none of the crops will grow. Most of the people will have died, and the rest of us will be cannibals.

Civilization will have broken down. The few people left will be living in a failed state like Somalia or Sudan, and living conditions will be intolerable.The droughts will be so bad, there will be no more corn growing. (Entire Conversation with Charlie Rose)

Ted, I know it must have been tough being married to Jane all those years, but this just takes it to a whole new level. No more corn and eating my neighbors… I’m speechless!


April 5, 2008

Dick Morris asks a very simple question: Is it appropriate for the spouse of a US senator and a presidential candidate to be in business with the leader of a foreign country?
A foreign country that has lots of matters before the US government?

His Answer: No.

The former, and Lord willing, only President Clinton, has a substantial portion of his post Presidential cash-flow from just those type of sources. Keep in mind, this is the guy who previously took a tax deduction for used underwear.

Now he is being paid by folks who are being investigated for assisting telemarketers fleece vulnerable elderly US citizens and foreign leaders who have been cited for human rights violations by the State Department. And by making him the First Laddy, should HRC manage to steal the DNC nomination from BHO and then by some weird alignment of all that is unholy defeat John McCain, there will be no end to his potential earning fleecing power.

The Clintons’ returns can be viewed at this link.
