Obama Hates the South

The most transparent president ever traveled through the midwest this week on a tricked out rock star black bus. It reminded me of the Rolling Stones hit, Paint it Black, a source of nightmares for me when I was a kid. (I don’t know why the song gave me nightmares but it did)

I’ve written about it before here.

Obama’s trip around the three midwestern states he needs to shore up for votes may be a magical misery tour but that is all he has in common with my beloved Beatles.

Of course he stayed up north where things are a might bit friendlier for him.

So on to Martha’s Vineyard Obama goes for a ten day vacation. As far as I am concerned Obama does have a great plan to fix the economy as long as he stays there permanently and does nothing but golf and talk and golf and talk and golf and talk……………

Historic Hospital Engulfed by Fire at Fort Chaffee, Arkansas.
Fort Smith, Arkansas was once called “hell on the border.”

The historic city fit that description once again yesterday as the temperature hit 115 degrees, breaking all records for heat.

Fort Smith breaks all-time heat record, currently: 115 degrees. The hottest temperature since record keeping started in late 1800s.

Yes, we Hobbits, we tea drinkers, we American citizens, have been spending this summer trying to keep our homes and yards from catching on fire while we were calling our representatives and senators in D.C. pleading with them, reasoning with them, to restore fiscal sanity to our country.

While minding the stores, the homes and the schools, going to work day in and day out, Tea Partiers were still keeping a watch on the doings in D.C. and working the phones and the blogs, wiping the sweat from our brows as we watched the corrupt doings in Washington D.C. We saw the threats of default for what they were. As a result, we can recognize a Satan Sandwich when we see it.

We are not at all impressed with the results of the Debt-ceiling deal and the name calling in the aftermath of it is deplorable.

The bumbling, Joe Biden blamed the results of the deal on the tea party and called conservative tea party members terrorists; Maureen Dowd tripped all over herself calling us cannibals, vampires and zombies; Martin Bashir of MSNBC had on an addiction expert, Dr. Stanton Peele, who proceeded to analyze the tea party as delusional and prone to violence. Tea Partiers want “to end life as we know it on this planet,” screeched Nancy Pelosi, even before the debt ceiling fiasco deal was sealed.

Democrats, if they haven’t already, surely must have gone over the bend, or on a bender.

Sarah Palin, wise woman that she is, might have said this during the Battle of the Bulge, “They’ve got us surrounded again, the poor bastards,” which in reality is a quote of General Creighton Abrams Jr.

What Sarah said in response to Biden is just as rich: “”If we were really domestic terrorists, shoot, President Obama would be wanting to pal around with us, wouldn’t he?

Because we think spending is irresponsible and downright crazy we are called nuts!

Jonah Goldberg’s mild response to the calumnious remarks of the media liberals and democrats was most appropriate. It’s mild in comparison with their extreme remarks, that is. It also reminds me of World War ll, American Commander, Brigadier General Anthony McAuliffe who, when the Germans demanded that the Americans surrender Bastogne replied, “Nuts!” The Germans did not understand, so the Americans explained that “Nuts!” meant “go to Hell!” Jonah wrote, “Well, go to Hell. All of you.”

By the way, the Germans redoubled their efforts to destroy Bastogne and its “Besieged Bastards.” They did not succeed.

Hell on the Border in Arkansas is small change compared to the hellish deeds done by our so-called friends in Congress. Boehner and his fellow Republicans sat down with Reid, Pelosi, and Obama and signed a deal with them so our economy (supposedly) would not go into default. Obama won’t have to worry about paying the piper until after the 2012 election.

The economy is really on a roll now…..rolling right down to the bottom.

We will remember the hot summer of 2011 in November, 2012.

Obama is done. The magic is gone. The words he utters these days are clumsy and lackluster, and he’s still blaming Bush.

“It’s been a long, tough year. But we have made some incredible strides together. Yes, we have. But the thing we all have to remember is, as much good as we’ve done, precisely because the challenges were so daunting, precisely because we were inheriting so many challenges, that we’re not even halfway there yet,” he said.

Boehner is diminished. He stuck his neck out a mile for nothing.

A summer of severe drought  and heat has kept shoppers home.The jobs situation is getting worse in Arkansas as it is in the rest of the country.

The long hot summer still has long to go. Hell has been on our nation’s southern border for quite some time. The White House and the Justice Department and the Operation Gunwalker scandal may be playing six degrees of Kevin Bacon.

Cell phone photo of my spooky line drawing done on the white board in my art class.

It’s Halloween and in our city the children are observing the actual date on the calendar. It will be a spooky (and fun) evening here in flyover land.

Chills will be running down the spines. Hands will be shaking and twisting in fear. As the night goes up to day what kind of destruction will be left in the wake of the tricksters and treaters?

Oh, I’m not talking about tonight but Tuesday night. November 2nd is Election day in America. Will the witches of the left coast be shrieking in rage at the results or will that spooky “once upon a time witch for a day” be victorious?

We will see.

Twenty people perished in a flash flood this weekend, the gulf is being flooded with oil, while Obama seeks butts to kick…on the golf course.

LANGLEY, Ark. — Like they had time and again, Leslie and Adam Jez packed their camper and headed for Arkansas’ Albert Pike Recreation Area. But instead of leaving Friday, they and their 3-year-old met up with family a day earlier — a decision that proved fatal.

Flash floods pushed a torrent of water through their campsite on the edge of the Ouachita National Forest before dawn, killing at least 19 people including Leslie and her mother, Sherry Wade. Adam survived, but authorities haven’t said whether their child, Kaden, was among the victims.

State police said one person is still missing, and search teams plan to resume their work Monday morning.

The twentieth victim was found yesterday, a little girl.

The grim recovery of bodies after flash flooding tore through a western Arkansas campground was nearing its end Tuesday, as officials awaited DNA tests to confirm that a young girl killed by the rising waters was the final victim.

Rescue crews planned a limited search Tuesday of the Albert Pike Recreation Area, where a wall of water came rushing through early Friday after a heavy storm, killing 20 people.

Arkansas State Police say they’re confident the girl whose body was recovered Monday was the last to have been killed by the floodwaters. They said they believe many others first feared missing were camping in other parts of the state, without cell phone coverage.

“We did have some names of individuals whose families did come to us with direct evidence or information of persons present in the park and we believe we have identified all of those individuals in one way or the other,” Arkansas State Police Spokesman Bill Sadler said.

Although Arkansas Gov. Beebe expressed his sympathy to the families who lost family members in the flood, President Obama has yet to comment. He was too busy playing golf this past Sunday.

Obama holds no brief for pelicans.

Thoughts that have occurred to me lately while I was away from the keyboard…

It seems to me that the White House has worked harder at offering jobs to Democrats they want out of the way than in actually doing the things that will ignite our economy and create real jobs.

How many weeks did it take for Obama to respond to the tragic oil rig explosion and subsequent oil spill in the Gulf? Was there ever any kind of Obama administration response to the floods in Nashville?

I came to the conclusion that Obama couldn’t care less about the South after the presidential election in 0-8. Arkansas and Louisiana rejected Obama even more strongly than they did John Kerry in the 0-4 election. I suspected then that there would be hell to pay for the states that voted strongly for McCain. It seems to me that the Obama administrations’ belated response to the horror in the Gulf has been grudging to say the least. Obama seems to be annoyed that he has had to travel south to see the impact in person.

On Day forty nine of the oil spill Louisiana fisheries, oil industries and the hospitality industry are suffering and will be hurting for many years to come. There hasn’t been much in the way of constructive concern coming from the White House for the economic devastation that will most certainly occur.

My daughter-in-law’s father was killed in a horrible accident on an oil rig off the coast of Louisiana when she was thirteen years old. Her family has suffered from that good man’s loss. It’s very sad that there has been very little mention of the deaths of the eleven men who died in the explosion on the oil rig.

Knowing how much my Louisiana relatives love everything to do with fishing, boating and all the unique ways of life the state offers, it makes me sad that their world as they know it is upside down. Now the livelihoods of so many in the Gulf states are threatened.

Then there was the Helen Thomas outing this weekend. She was finally revealed as the anti-semitic, pro-Palestinian hag that she is. I never understood why the White House press corps sat in the same room with the woman during the years of President George W. Bush. She was so over-the-top biased against President Bush that it was sickening.

This woman’s downfall was a long time coming but it was inevitable. Yesterday was the anniversary of D-Day and my husband and I watched one of the few tributes to it on the Military Channel. Kind of ironic that Ms. Thomas met her doom on the 66th anniversary of the allied invasion to free Europe from Hitler.

“Most people in the White House don’t share Helen Thomas’ anti-semitic views,” press secretary, Robert Gibbs said today. “Obviously those remarks are — do not reflect certainly the opinion of most people in here, and certainly not of the administration.”

Hmm. Wonder who in the White House does share Helen Thomas’ views?
