Excellent commentary, once again. Obama's statement about the other smart people reminded me of an old tongue twister. One smart feller
he felt smart, Two smart fellers they both felt smart, Three smart fellers they all felt smart.
That was so satisfying....................I'm good for the rest of the week!
Barry the Freeloader.................let's send him back to Chicago where he can run amongst his own kind.
"Why don't you get a real job, freeloader..."
That was a very delicious line that I will be digesting and savouring for the rest of the day.
That was totally awesome. To borrow from Glenn Beck's Chris Christie porn reference, that was some conservative porn.
Man... Bill Whittle lays into Barry... brilliant! Love. These. Guys.
I'm stunned that there are sychophants out there... common, voting Americans... who are and will vote for this monster. How damn stupid can they be? That's thetorical... I already know. I'm sad and sickened that there are sheeple out there who are buying what this phony is selling and that they are so stupid, lazy, and parasitical that they will destroy this great nation, just to get a few crumbs for the short term. And the fact that the media is complicit is criminal.
Charles Krauthammer is apparently thinking that Obama will win in 2012... I don't know the particulars... but it's distressing even to think of "It" being re-elected. This nation is becoming subverted and is being made dependent on the miserable Government... our caretakers. The dumbmasses are all too willing to sacrifice their freedom for slavery. It's up to us, the Tea Party, Conservatives, and honest people to stand up and vote in order to remove the cancer that is killing this nation.
I pray God is merciful and turns this ship around.
The only reason Charles thinks this way is because he has not watched a single Bill Whittle video. Poor guy.
Still a long way to November. It is disheartening because I don't know how one person could vote for this turd much less a majority of Amercians. Too many people don't have a clue on how jobs are created and how government jobs are paid for. Crazy!
Read Ann Coulter's last piece on her website because she goes on about the same thing you referred to.
Political Correctness WARNING: The following statement is very likely politically incorrect.
I actually have absolutely no idea what audience Obama was speaking to but I'd like to make the following assertion: They cheered wildly when he said that there are a lot of smart people out there (who don't succeed) and there are a lot of hard working people out there (who don't succeed). There is definitely some truth in each of those statements. However, I'd give 10:1 odds that if you could accurately measure that audience with respect to those attributes (smart and hard working), they would score extremely very low on both measures.
I'd also like to assert that there are a lot of stupid and lazy people out there that don't succeed and who have a vested interest in leeching off of the smart and successful and hard working people (that are being strangled in taxes).
The truly successful people are those who have a vision and have the talent to implement it. I am a smart person, also a hard working person. And I feel that I have made use of my talents. But I am not successful in the same way that a business creator is successful. And that is fine. Not everyone is cut from the same cloth.
In a free market environment there is room for both. Obama's audience doesn't seem to respect the fact that businesses and employees share a positive symbiotic relationship. Both are destroyed when the host is attacked.
ps: I've known some very bright people who could not function in anything but an intellectual capacity. (One woman I knew brought her coat to work and asked me to show her how to zip the liner into it) She was a valuable employee in a specialized area but clueless about ordinary business functions.
There are so many great points in this video. My favorite was the WW2 analogy because I can personally relate to the need to modify equipment to meet conditions on the ground in Iraq. I was lucky enough to get one of the new "up-armored" Humvees but even though they were a lot safer, they were next to useless in several ways.
They had no spotlight to illuminate potential IEDs at night and the headlights were very dim. We pooled our money and had a family member ship over a million candle rechargeable.
The horn is barely audible so we got a siren shipped over so we could alert civilian drivers that we needed them to make way. Before we got the siren we'd actually have to bump their vehicle most of the time in order to get them to notice us.
We had stretchers but the doors won't close so we bought bungee cords to hold them shut in the event we needed it.
We had a towbar for when one truck was disabled but no place to put it so we got some guys to make a bracket and weld it on.
The AC system was not designed to deal with the heat of Iraq so we "appropriated" some flexible dryer hose and ran them from the ceiling vents to the driver and passenger seats so we got at least a little relief.
I could go on and on, but the point is the same. Government provided the basic framework and it is up to everyone else to find a way to make it work. Not a perfect analogy to the Public sector, I know, but the concept is the same. Government didn't build Up-Armor Humvees just in case we needed them, those came after.
Government didn't build roads or employ teachers (or any of the other strawmen that Barry likes to point to) until it was needed to meet a need in the Private sector. Obama's whole argument is ridiculous on it's face.
I truly appreciate all the hard work they put into their presentations but Mr. Whittle has such a talent for taking the truth of the matter and mixing it with such humorous quips to make it such a pleasure to watch. "Barry never had to lift anything heavier than his over inflated ego". Superbly done.
This was great. They nailed Obama to the wall (as if that was even hard to do). This comment by Obama is going to haunt him till election day, and beyond, as he sits alone in his personal kingdom of one and wonders what went wrong, how did it all come unraveled. He coulda' been a contenda'. Dream on, Bari. It was not nice knowing you.
BTW, Whittle is so good and rarely makes any mistakes. I think he is going to cringe a little, to himself, when he sees that he called Obama 'the 45th President'. Small gaffe, and I give Whittle a pass because of his greatness, but I bet he'll wince privately.
LOL. No, I think Al Gore came up with the "all you can eat" buffet concept!!!! And then he took considerable advantage of it. He's so big he's going to explode one of these days.
No way in Hades Gore could invent anything. His entire life has been built upon using money he inherited and fraudulent hoaxes someone else thought up. Gore would likely be nothing more than a History of the World Part I stand up philosopher ...BS'er
Scott Ott looks gaunt. I hope he's just on a weight loss thing and not ill. I love these guys. Great Trifecta as usual.
