Howie Carr’s 5 Reasons NOT to Vote for BHO

November 2, 2008

Five reasons to vote against Obama? Only five? I could give you 50, no problem.

1. He wants to tax working Americans back to the Stone Age. He lies when he says he will cut taxes for 95 percent of Americans. You know it’s nonsense because they can’t keep their numbers straight from hour to hour. Obama claims everyone making under $250,000 is safe, or is it $200,000 (the infomercial) or $150,000 (Joe Biden)? On Friday, Gov. Bill Richardson cut it to $120,000.

Oh what a tangled web we weave. The fact is, the wealth-spreaders have vowed to do away with the Bush tax cuts. So everybody who pays any income taxes is going to take a hit. Plus, the friends of ACORN also plan to get rid of the cap on Social Security withholding taxes. That means everyone who makes over $102,700 will be slaughtered. I don’t have room to talk about capital gains.

2. The federal courts. In that famous 2001 Chicago radio interview, Obama wistfully talked about the need for the Supreme Court to break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution. You know, those pesky constraints that make us a nation of laws, not governed by the whims of the Friends of Obama, or Jeremiah Wright. You think Breyer and Ginsburg are beyond the pale? Obama’s crowd thinks they’re too conservative.

3. Teach the Obama-worshipping bumkisser media a lesson. Have they ever been more in the tank for anyone? They’re all worried about the Patriot Act and terrorists’ rights at Gitmo, but they had no problems printing flat-out lies about Sarah Palin. More recently, they took handouts from Obama thugs in Ohio on Joe the Plumber’s tax liens, divorce problems, child-support payments etc. – worse violations of privacy rights than anything that’s happened under the Patriot Act. But who cares – Joe the Plumber is just a typical white person.

3. The character of Barack Obama. You can always tell a Harvard man, but you can’t tell him much. He lectures you that your kids will have to learn Spanish – your kids, not his. He’s always railing about economic justice, but his illegal-alien aunt lives in poverty in Southie. Hey Barack, I thought charity began at home. Like John Kerry and Joe Biden, he doesn’t believe in donating to charity. Obama is a classic liberal hypocrite: He’ll give anybody the shirt off your back, not his.

4. Michelle Obama. Another pampered semi-literate Ivy Leaguer who still considers herself a victim, even with her $360,000-a-year job as diversity coordinator at a Chicago hospital. Can you stand four years of this harridan lecturing you on your greed?

5. All the other stuff I don’t have much room for. Where the heck was Barack Obama really born? Don’t forget his pal Bill Ayers dedication of his 1974 book “Prairie Fire” to, among others, Sirhan Sirhan. (Are you listening, Teddy and Caroline?) If Obama loses, Gwen Ifill’s book tanks. The return of the Fairness Doctrine to censor free speech. Joe Biden, a heartbeat away. And the No. 1 reason of all to vote against Barack Obama: If he loses it will drive the moonbats absolutely bonkers. (Boston Herald)

BHO Feels A Mighty “Righteous Wind At Our Backs”

October 23, 2008

BHO told the good folks of Virginia that he believes…

“If you’ll stand with me, then I know that we can win Virginia and we can win this election and we can finally bring the change we need to Washington,” Obama told the estimated crowd of 35,000. “I feel like we got a righteous wind at our backs here.” (ABC Political Punch)

I’m reminded of a 2003 movie “A Mighty Wind.”  where they try to re-create the past and celebrate the Good Old Days… Meet the new Cast of A Mighty Righteous Wind… Starting on the Left… “Joe the Senator”, BHO & Dingy Harry.

The Nay's Have it

The Nay's Have it!

Some Highlights of what they tried to pass:

  • Throw a TARP over the Problems: “Troubled Asset Relief Program established under this Act on the activities and performance of the TARP.” (p. 6 & 49)
  • Oversite- (Weren’t they already doing that with Fannie & Freddie?) “It shall be the duty of the Special nspector General to conduct, supervise, and coordinate audits and investigations of the purchase, management, and sale of assets by the Secretary of the Treasury” (p.63)
  • Increase Debt Limit – (I think that’s $11 Triillion Dollars) Subsection (b) of section 3101 of title 31, United States Code, is amended by striking out the dollar limitation contained in such subsection and inserting ‘‘$11,315,000,000,000’’. (p. 68)
  • Taking Care of Their Own, AGAINThe Oversight Panel may appoint and fix the pay of any personnel as the Commission considers appropriate. (p. 74)

Perfect Together

September 30, 2008

The campaign goes on… Each day we wait to hear the Uber Intellectual Joe Biden share with us from his vast storehouse of little know facts. In fact, they seem only to be know to Joe. For example:

  • FDR’s TV Talks when the Stock Market crash in 1929 (Problems: FDR wasn’t President, TV did not exist)
  • His Helicopter was “Forced Down” over Afghanistan (Problem: It was not due to Hostal Fire, it was due to snow)
  • Paying more taxes is Patriotic (Problem: Charles Rangel as spokesman for the Un-Patriotic American)
  • Today, he said he was “Under Fire” while in Iraq (Problem: he later amended his comment to “I was near where a shot landed.” 

And that doesn’t even touch the 57 States that Obama visited (with 2 more to go), the need for more Arabic speakers in Afghanistan. (Afghans don’t speak Arabic, they speak Dari and Pashto.) And don’t forget, He has a bracelet too.

They are perfect for each other.

Crossword puzzles heavily favor Democrats.

According to the puzzle database maintained by, ever since that game-changing day in 2005, OBAMA has appeared regularly as an answer in New York Times crossword puzzles. With its wonderfully convenient alternating series of commonly used vowels and consonants, OBAMA has been the answer to the clues “Senator who wrote ‘Dreams From My Father,’” “Future senator who delivered the 2004 Democratic convention keynote address” and “Presidential candidate born in Hawaii.” (Politico)

Well, I was thinking, what are some other questions that you could use in a crossword puzzle with the answer OBAMA?…

1 Down: Senator who has sponsored 121 bills since Jan 24, 2005, of which 116 haven’t made it out of committee and 2 were successfully enacted.
3 Across: Senator missed 306 (24%) of 1287 votes since Jan 6, 2005.
7 Down: Recently reminded that he has a Christian faith, not a Muslim faith by George Stephanopoulos.
12 Across: Attended a church for 20 years, where the Pastor asserts that HIV was invented by the U.S. government as a tool of genocide.
13 Down: President of Harvard Law Review who while with the review, did not publish any of his own work according to his campaign spokesman.
15 Across: According to Sen. Hillary Clinton, this Senator, when compared to John McCain was described as follows “I know Senator McCain has a lifetime of experience he will bring to the White House. And this Senator has a speech he gave in 2002,” Hillary Clinton, CNN Interview, March 5, 2008
18 Down: This Senator, when his teleprompter fails, sounds like he is dazed and confused.
17 Across: Has a friend who is an unrepentant weather-underground terrorists, yet claims he just knows him from the neighborhood.
19 Down: Joe Biden said recently that if this Senator “tries to fool with my Beretta, he’s got a problem.”

I guess they are right, Crossword puzzles do favor democrats…

Snow is Hell…

September 23, 2008

The Team Obama members who drew the short straw and were assigned to the Joe Biden Magical Misery Tour have some spinning to do today. It seems that the same guy who gave us such an apt description of BHO back in February of 2007 “Articulate and Bright and Clean” (CNN) and earlier this month Re-Defined Patriotism as Paying More Taxes (FoxNews), this time has taken a page from the Hillary Clinton 30 seconds over Bosnia war chronicles. (ScottOnCapeCod).

When we last left our “hero”, it was February, 2008. He was 10,500 feet in the mountains of Afghanistan having had his helicopter “Forced Down”. There was a real hero ( A 3 Star General), a RINO (Chuck Hagel, R-Neb) and the looking for his 4th Purple Heart because the landing was a bit rough, John F. Kerry.

The 3 Senators, according to Joe, were on the “superhighway of terror that exists between Afghanistan and Pakistan.” What Joe failed to mention, when he was recalling his Behind Enemy Lines experience, was the reason that  “my helicopter was forced down”… SNOW.  Not enemy gun fire, not evasive action due to a near miss from an RPG, he was on the deck because the well trained, military pilot determined that being on the ground was safer for his aircraft, crew and the 3 Star in the back then continuing to fly in a Snow Storm.  The pilot made the right call, Biden was just along for the ride.
