Books, movies, politics, and whatever I want

Quote of the Day

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

“The key to understanding liberals is realizing that they are immune to argument. The concept underlying the idea of a debate is that facts and reasoning can lead one to change his previous conclusions. But liberals begin with their conclusions; facts and reasoning that may undermine the preexisting conclusion must be at least ignored, if not actively attacked. This is why you see liberals shouting about jailing global warming deniers as blizzards rage outside.

The problem liberals always face is that the world refuses to honor their preconceived notions. Sometimes we get lucky and the liberal wises up, at least a little. For instance, Jimmy Carter woke up to the fact that the Soviet Union was composed of genuine bastards when they invaded Afghanistan, and in fits and starts he took action. This shocking burst of foreign policy competence is almost single-handedly responsible for raising Carter’s ranking on the list of America’s greatest presidents all the way up to 39th. Zombie Millard Fillmore was totally bummed.

Now we are in the almost unimaginable position of looking back at Jimmy Carter as an example of comparatively sure, savvy leadership. The Russians invaded Afghanistan and Carter armed the rebels. The Russians invaded Crimea and Barack Obama went on Ellen to hear the hostess gush about how much America loves Obamacare.”

Cold reception in Russia

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Our Dear Leader is not getting a warm reception in Russia. Very different than his campaign stop in Berlin, but then there was a free concert and free beer to draw the crowds there.

The Russian news agency Pravda had this to say about Barack Hussein Obama,

Obama: Deceiver, cheat, swindler, liar, fraudster, con-artist.

For once, Pravda is living up to its name.

If you have any doubts about how the Russian government feels about our Dear Leader, take a look at how Russian President Dmitry Medvedev greats the, ahem, so-called “Leader of the Free World.”

Russia gives Obama the cold shoulder

Clearly, the Russian government feels that Barry is a bigger chump than Jimmy Carter. They will be able to pretty much whatever they damn well please for the next three and half years, safe in the knowledge that BHO won’t lift a finger to stop them. In fact, they are counting on him rolling over and spreading for them when ever they snap their fingers.

Sadly, they are probably right.

Update: Chuck Norris sees a Obama/Carter connection as well. He isn’t as happy about it as the Russians are.

Further proof: During our Dear Leader‘s visit, Putin went out of his way to praise the hospitality and openness of former US President George W. Bush. Just his little way of pointing out that he doesn’t think very much of the current US President, Barack Hussein Obama.
