Wake Up & Smell the Republicans, I Mean the Coffee

It looks like Obama has wasted precious time and resources by trying to extend a bipartisan hand to the republican party. Maybe he did it all for show and no go, who knows and who cares. The idea that the right wing will work with the left wing is absurd. Clearly Bush and company drew that line in the sand over eight years ago when he totally ignored the left, and he had the majority in both houses. I really don't mind if the parties ever work with each other any more, it's clearly to late to kiss and make up. This is what U S politics has evolved into, "majority rules" So wake up and smell the coffee Obama and stop the ass kissing already.

Now you have the majority, in both the congress and the senate. Take a tip from your predecessor and start cramming your programs down the throats of the right wing. They showed this country no mercy when they had the power to take away our liberties or send Americans to die in a war of choice. They got everything they wanted including redistributing or should I say stealing from the poor and middle classes of hard working Americans and giving it to the top 10 percent of America's wealthiest people. Bush, Cheney and the right wing senate and congress didn't even bat an eye and why should they, they knew that their spineless counterparts on the other side of the aisle would do nothing to stop them.

You have a couple of high ranking Republicans in your cabinet, you broke bread with the elite right wing intellectuals, and you have tried to be inclusive to a point. In return you have half the country wishing that you fail, meaning that if neo-con ideology is not running this country they rather have a failed state. Mr. Obama you have right wing congressmen and senators giving a bombastic radio show host apologies and by the way more respect than they will ever give to you. What are you waiting for ? Well don't worry I think the coffee is already burnt.

Keith Olbermann

I must admit when I first started to watch his show it was nice to hear something from the other side, Olbermann was the ad hoc anti Limbaugh and O'Reilly, but he lost me during the primary when he and his pal Chris Matthews displayed so much blatant sexism and venom against Hillary Clinton. I will admit upfront that I supported Obama, but only after Clinton lost to him in the primary. Now yesterday before the heat in the Oval Office could reach 72 degrees Obama broke his first promise to the American people that voted him into office, here are Obama's words.

"I am in this race to tell the corporate lobbyists that their days of setting the agenda in Washington are over," he said this in November 2007 in Des Moines, Iowa. "I have done more than any other candidate in this race to take on lobbyists and won. They have not funded my campaign, they will not run my White House, and they will not drown out the voices of the American people when I am president." You heard it right from the horses mouth, so what happens next is hard to swallow because Obama chose to appoint a defense contractor's lobbyist this Thursday to become his No. 2 official at the Defense Department.

William J. Lynn III, Obama's choice for deputy defense secretary, was senior vice president for government operations at Raytheon Co. and lobbied as recently as last June on issues including missiles, sensors and radar, advanced technology programs and intelligence funding. This after Obama has vowed that no political appointees in his administration would be permitted to work on areas that "directly and substantially related to their prior employer for two years." During his presidential campaign, Obama took pains to tell voters he wouldn't tolerate influence-peddling. Under Obama's rules, political appointees also would be precluded from lobbying the executive branch after leaving government service during the remainder of his administration. The president like every other one before him sold us a bill of goods.

Well this is obviously a very disappointing choice to me on a personal level and I have already made calls to my state senators and to one congressperson in my district, asking that they vote against, and not confirm this choice.

As for Olbermann not a word, not a pip not question, no special comment on the first contradiction to the presidents own rule, nada, nothing on his show last night about this obviously blatant lie made by the new president to America. It just goes to show you that whether they are talking heads from the left or the right they will only speak to divisiveness, and stay on point for their man no matter what, and the politicians can always count on good old American apathy to let them get away with the business as usual in Washington, old style no change tired and dishonest politics.

Ann Coulter

It is useless to toss negative cliches at this woman and think that it would matter. Look at the comments from people on many a blog defending her, they are all of the same DNA, as the likes of Bush, Cheney, and neo-cons in general. Any thoughtful person would just ignore her. She is what she is and she only preaches to a shrinking choir. This country and its citizens have been abused to the point of desperation, economically and morally, with the outgoing administration seeing the Constitution as paper to line the bottom of a bird cage our nation had no chance. We need to keep focused on the positives and ignore the ignorance of any person that is going to continue to earn a living by being divisive. There has been enough American blood and treasure and goodwill wasted because of conflicting ideology.
I only wro
te this quick post because of the uproar and accusations made by Coulter after she had been canceled by NBC on the Today show. I guess she was going on to promote a new book of hers, and at the last minute NBC had a chance to interview Bush's lap dog Tony Blair. So began the attacks on the left wing media (NBC) even though she was re booked. I think that the recent extraordinary outreach made by the Obama administration should not only be commended but recognized for the good will it has already started here at home. He has made scores of courtesy calls with reputable people from the far left and the far right, he has called and visited the Supreme Court and chief justice John Roberts, and leaders representing a variety of religions. I hope his actions will in the long run help diminish the haters from both sides of the aisles.

Change We Can Beleive In, Maybe In Your Pants Pocket.

OBLAGOVICH

I guess I'm just disappointed more about the conduct of the Obama selection process. I know he isn't personally choosing Kennedy as Hillary's replacement for her New York senate seat, but he is the new party leader and if he asks Patterson to appoint her its a done deal. I heard Caroline on the tube again yesterday, I mean she was asked some very simplistic questions that only required a one or two sentence response to clarify her stance, she just jabbered on repeating adverbs and useless adjectives that had little to no meaning in helping to clarify her posture on the issues brought to her. Instead she mimicked the same Palin style of beating around the bush, for a person of her perceived magnitude, she does not come across as a political wonk, her sound bites are pathetic and her looks project weakness, where strength and confidence are going to be key essentials to win the battles that besiege Americans today. From the bottom of my heart, I loved JFK.
Now to make matters worse there is a scandalous trail on Obama's coat tails leading from Illinois to the White House, besides the apparent quid pro quo favor to Ted Kennedy, to the disgraced Illinois Governor Blogoyavych appointment to the senate to replace Obama's seat, now top cabinet appointment Gov. Bill Richardson (commerce secretary) appointee has to pull out because he is allegedly involved in some pay for play bid scandals, nice job the Obama vetting team has done. The Obama administration won't begin for another 2 weeks, and no one knew of the upcoming charges. Seriously nothing is changing or will change its dirty politics as usual. Yes I am still awaiting some progressive intellectuals that I thought along with millions of others thought would become appointments to this administration. So far Obama has shunned the progressive left wing and gays, two large groups that had a role in his gaining this election.
