The Descent


The Palin pick knocked Obama off his pedestal and the messianic glow has disappeared.

He was like Fonzie jumping the shark with that over-the-top World Tour and the Hail, Caesar stadium speech with styrofoam Greek columns and a thousand waving American flags (that were then headed for the dumpster after the show ended, as effectively tattle-taled).

Mac graciously let him have his last meal and one more good night's sleep...

... before knocking him off the front page and his game first thing in the morning without further ado.

It's been downhill ever since.

Obama's a plagiarist--just like his veep, Biden--and has been tearing pages out of Clinton's 1992 playbook since Day One.

Bill knew it, and it angered him (though it serves him right since he himself tried to replicate the Kennedy-Nixon dynamic in '92).

But that pig isn't flying (no pun intended).

First Obama plagiarised Clinton's (Man from) Hope & (It's Time To) Change mantras, but you won't hear him saying that anymore.

Then he lifted Clinton's "Out-Of-Touch elitist" shtick, but that backfired.

And now, increasingly desperate, he's stealing his "It's The Economy, Stupid" spiel.

Good luck with that one, porky (again, no pun intended).

The Citizens Against Government Waste rated the gluttony of the three senators thusly:

Sen. Obama’s 2007 rating was 10 percent, making his lifetime score 18 percent. The 2008 Congressional Pig Book contained 53 earmarks worth $97.4 million for Sen. Obama, including $1,648,850 for the Shedd Aquarium.

Sen. Biden received the worst possible rating in 2007 with 0 percent, while his lifetime rating is 22 percent. According to the Pig Book, Sen. Biden had 70 earmarks for a total of $119.7 million in fiscal year 2008, including $246,100 for the Grand Opera House in Wilmington.

Sen. McCain has a 2007 rating of 100 percent, and a lifetime rating of 88, has never requested nor received a single earmark, and has pledged to veto any spending bill that contains any earmarks
.

What's next, Senator Obama?

I'd like to GIVE HIM some 'pain'.. great post, John.
That photo of Obama with the cigarette dangling out of his mouth; isn't it funny CNN hasn't used that!? (To me, it's so metaphorical; not that I'm SO against smoking and all but there's something sinister about his face in this pic and it says so much to me of who he really is.)

And yes...he's suddenly grasping at ALL straws to hide his record.

I'm hoping you have time to read my pool piece; would like to know what you thought.

If McCrash lives up to his nickname, it won't be Obama who does the landing.

Here's the pool piece, in case you didn't get back to my blog to see my answer. Thanks so much for coming by, by the way. I hesitate to tell you about the piece considering what a good writer you are, if you want to know the truth, but I'm curious about what you think. It was raunchier, but Mr. Z said "Take a few of the details out!" HA!!

Which GERMAN piece? About Socialism in Germany!?? let me know..it's a good one, I think.. "German TRIP?"

Just so you know - the flag dumpster story was invented. It is a fake story - The flags were all donated.

I know these astro turf stories are felt to be needed to excite the excitable, but they actually reveal weakness.

Country First!!!LOL
