Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

I am Soooo Happy I was WRONG!

Well I didn't see this one coming, but the Messiah couldn't get it done! Obama is beginning to realize that he can't get things done just by showing up and making a speech. Sorry, Barry, this isn't Chicago!

Not that I am sad about it mind you. And please you libs stop saying that the right is happy because America didn't get the Olympics and we just wanted Obama to fail. That was never what this was about! This was about the fact that our President was engaging in political crony payback for his Chicago thug friends--people like his slumlord friend Tony Rezko and close White House adviser, Valerie Jarrett who both stood to make millions on the sales of low income property in Chicago that would need to be cleared to build the Olympic Village. And also to payback his union thugs and allies like Chicago mayor Richard Daly with millions in construction contracts and bids.

And a President who decided to give a whole 25 minutes of meeting time to General McChrystal regarding the war in Afghanistan while Air Force one was stopped over in Copenhagen. What an absolute embarrassment Obama is to the sovereignty and strength of the United States and is a clear example of how much liberals like Obama and others loathe our military. What do you think he told McChrystal I wonder? After the small talk and "hello's" probably not much. Obama probably told him he would get to Afghanistan after he continued his celebrity of the world tour and shoved universal health care down everyone's throat back home--maybe then he would consider the request. In the meantime, if dozens more troops have to get killed to save Obama's agenda and political capital, then so be it I suppose...

The fact that 263,000 more jobs were lost last month and unemployment is now at 9.8% (or probably more like 17 or 18% when you include the people who have stopped looking) should have been more than enough reason to keep him in Washington coming up with free economic policies to get wealth and jobs growing again. But as I have said, to people like Obama, high unemployment and government dependency are what they go to sleep dreaming about at night...

Oh and what a "sacrifice" it was for our wonderful first lady Michelle, the co-thug in chief, to go there and plead for Chicago as well. After all, those were her words--she was doing it for the children--whatever the hell that means. Then while she is there she makes some wandering unrelated speech regarding her father's multiple sclerosis and why that should automatically award her city the games. But probably the more insulting comment was when she made a reference that the Olympics gives kids inspiration to be world class athletes. Wait a minute, I thought her husband just told the kids in his school master speech a couple of weeks ago that they have almost no chance at that? (so inspirational eh?)

What makes it laughable is the down right pompous way this was handled. Obama figured he had this in the bag, and even if he didn't that all he had to do was show up and the endless love and adulation the world has for him (in his mind) would carry him along to victory. Wrong! Normally, diplomats and other behind-the scene- people would have worked this out and had it pretty much sealed up before any official announcement is made. The leader would just show up for the photo opp and be done with it. His narcissism and ego may be to big for just one Air Force One plane to hold, but he is learning that it isn't all about him and he can't just will his way to what he wants.

Hopefully, for America's sake, this will be the case for his other plans for this country as we go forward!
