Scare Force One caused the firing of the world’s most powerful aide. This former White House staff member was able to scramble two F-16 jets and a jumbo jet to fly over America’s most populated city in a post 9/11 era without so much as a second thought from the Obama administration. And he did it in between runs to the copier:
WASHINGTON, May 8 (Reuters) – A White House military aide who authorized an Air Force flyover of New York that caused panic among some people in the city resigned on Friday.
I guess it was getting crowded under the bus, so Obama has now moved on to throwing people under a jumbo jet. Strangely enough no leadership positions were let go. I guess when you actually find people who pay their taxes you hang on them.
It’s my hope that one day buck will stop with Obama. One day he will own up to the fact that the actions of the people he chooses to serve under him are a reflection of him and his leadership. It’s a hope. I also hope to someday be a jedi.

Even as I stood in line to vote yesterday I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to cast my ballot. I desperately wanted to cast my vote for Barack Obama. What he could potentially mean for race relations in this country I don’t think can be underestimated. John McCain was the second to last republican candidate I wanted as a Presidential choice behind Huckabee, so I wasn’t exactly gelled about filling in the bubble next to his name. Ultimately my choice came down this: Obama is too liberal, too inexperienced and the prospect of the country being controlled by Pelosi, Reid and Obama kept me from voting for Bob Barr.
Of all the things I fear now that we have wingnuts like Reid and Pelosi driving the short bus of liberal crazies through the streets of D.C., is that I honestly feel that mainstream press has failed. Never in the history of the freedom of the press has a Presidential candidate received so little push back on his nonexistent agenda. Never as a Presidential candidate remained completely removed from the vetting process as Obama. The only thing this country has today is hope, because over the last two years no one in the press thought to take Obama to task on any of his associations or positions. The press owes America an apology. I am sure Obama will turn out to be a great president (at least my love of this country hopes he will) but the bottom line is this: I don’t know anymore about Obama now than I did two years ago. I do, however, know a lot of manufactured dirt on Sarah Palin.
To top it off, the press ultimately suppresses the vote. The constant polling will deter a person from voting because the polls show their candidate is 14-17 points down. When I was waiting in line, I kept thinking ‘what’s the use, McCain is so far behind he can’t win anyway no matter how I vote.’ The real reason I stayed in line was to cast my vote for Jerry Behn, my local state senator. If Jerry wasn’t on the ballot I am pretty sure I would have left. I hope I wouldn’t have, but constant polling told me the wait was an exercise in futility.

Then they take their ball and go home:
The Obama spokesperson issued this statement about the interview:
“There’s nothing wrong with tough questions, but reporters have the very important job of sharing the truth with the public — not misleading the American people with false information. Senator Biden handled the interview well; however, the anchor was completely unprofessional. Senator Biden’s wife is not running for elected office, and there are many other stations in the Orlando television market that would gladly conduct a respectful and factual interview with her.”
“This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election.”

I never would have guessed, are you sure this isn’t a misprint?
Register editorial board endorses Obama for President
Yet in announcing his presidential bid, Obama outlined a bold, hopeful vision for America.
And nearly two years later we are still left with a hopeful outline. When did you hope replace common sense? When did hope replace getting off you ass and working for a living? When did hope start meaning that you turn off your brain? Here we are, a little over a week from electing the most under qualified man as the leader of the free and everyone believes it will be OK as long as we have hope.

More proof Barack will throw anyone under the bus who stands in the way of him and the Presidency. To bad Obama doesn’t have to live up the same scrutiny as a simple man wishing to truly live the American dream:
How many Presidential candidates do you know that will bash on the very constituents that got him elected in the first place? Imagine if the democrats and the fucking press (redundant, I know) treated Obama like they treated Joe the Plumber? There’s your real definition of hope.

Chris Matthews spent the entire first segment of Tuesday night’s Hardball questioning Sarah Palin’s “intellectual ability” to lead, but Republican Congressman Dan Lungren wasn’t having any of it, as he countered: “You want to talk about my friend Joe Biden who made at least 10 misstatements in the last debate,” and even made fun of Matthews’ Obama fondness, as the California Congressman fired back: “Chris, she does not send a tingle up my leg like Barack Obama does to you.” Matthews later insisted “the comparison between her and Hillary Clinton is the comparison between an igloo and the Empire State Building!”
For clarification, Hillary would be the igloo.
Show us your O-face, Chris…
