The one thing Barack Obama is good at… “Barack Obama has mastered very few things in his life. His vaunted oratorical prowess is a sham… His grasp of geopolitics is laughable, as is his knowledge of economics and finance. But he has mastered one thing all too well: He manipulates the Republican party extremely effectively.” With a little lot of help from the media flacks, of course… not to mention the GOP itself. It’s almost as if all our politics is one big sham, ain’t it?

As for the R party (establishment in particular) being intimidated by O, it is true. But they are also intimidated by harsh words from ANY elected dem, all of the media, de-clawed house cats, little dogs that bark loud, etc. etc.

Regarding Chairman O himself, let’s be generous. He is good at more than this one thing. His other talents include …

Lying
Propaganda
Fostering racial strife
Spending other people’s money
Picking loser companies
Subverting the US Constitution
Acting arrogant
Acting petulant
Fostering class grievances and envy

… to name a few.

I don’t consider him to be good at lying. He’s had lots of practice, you’d think he WOULD be good at by now. But a good liar keeps his stories straight. You don’t see through him immediately. His minions all believe every word he says, but I could convince all of them that my rocking horses are carved from the entire trunk of a plywood tree, hollowed out by the rare and elusive plywood termites.

Alinsky instructed exactly what he does. The whole thing is to get the Right tripping on their own feet while trying to defend themselves from slander and lies all the time without ever letting up. It is a fitful dance the progressive left gets the Republicans to do.

“I don’t know about you folks, but I am tired of losing to these ignorant, race-baiting, anti-Semitic, anti-freedom bastards. If we have to take off the gloves, hit below the belt, play dirty pool, or whatever metaphor you prefer for playing dirty…and winning….then I am all for it.”

Amen!

Hell PD, I have been saying that for about 12 years now.
They tell me I have to be “reasonable” and “Above lowering myself to their standards.”
No I DON’T have to be “reasonable”, AND YOU DON’T WIN A FIGHT BY FIGHTING “FAIR”, you win by being MORE dirty, nasty, and brutal than your opponent. Be it on the streets, the battlefield, or the political arena.
If you know you have to fight, don’t wait…Take the fight to them.

But hey, that’s just me.

Take a bazooka or a minigun.
Only because a railgun is too big to carry.

Enough of taking the so called moral high ground. It’s past time to call the Commiecrats on every little lie. Since they leave piles of shit everywhere, rub their noses in it.

What needs to change is the “we are better then that” mentallity that handcuffs the GOP. They need to be as nasty as the Dems, & it’s not like they don’t deserve it. Give them exactly what they give & if they bitch about it, give them some more. Same to the MSM, who are on their side anyway.

There is a way to graciously expose all the progressives crap. And that is exactly what the GOP should be doign. Take the high ground, don’t be liars and stupid about the left, just present the facts, repeatedly and unendingly and let them do the scrambling for a while. Bless their hearts!

Honestly, after reading the headline I expected to see one of two pictures, Obama playing golf, or sitting on the toilet.

I haven’t heard. Mostly because I don’t care. Is Obama good at golf?

He’s spending this weekend taking lessons from Tiger Woods’ former instructor.

I could do that too, if I was the most seasoned vacationing President ever, and lived under the delusion that I was the greatest man who ever walked the earth. And I’ve never picked up a golf club. But is Obama any good? Or does he play golf like he rides a bicycle?

At a members only, VERY expensive golf club. One cannot apply. They must be invited to join.

He’s not necessarily good at golf, he’s just good at wasting time playing golf. Oh, he’s good at taking vacations, too. But I guess Missile Command already covered that under ‘spending other people’s money. I mean, really, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over? Didn’t this clown just blow $5M on a vacation? And he’s going on another one?!?
