    I’m sure the pinkness of your site could calm Bob down just fine….. :)

  2. Carl says:

    In regards to Obama being elected POTUS: there’s a sucker born every 10 seconds apparently. The Dems’ philosphy is to never underestimate the stupidity of the average American voter and apparently they were right this time. However time will tell if they get buyers’ remorse.

    I’m for Change, Angel, but it will be 4 years before I see it.

  5. Pamela D.Hart says:

    He took a breath at the end, Angel. I’m glad he did, I was afraid he was going to have an aneurism.

  6. M.A. says:

    Great video. It’s true. Obama was anointed long before he was elected. People don’t really know enough about him, but they voted for him. Why? Many of them wanted to see an African-American elected President. I’m sorry, but for many people, that was it. (Please note, I could care less about the race of the candidates. I would vote for anyone if I agreed with their principles.) On the brighter side, maybe we can now move on as a country (if we still have one left in 4 years) and put the racial BS to rest for good.

  7. joe says:

    Angel, there is a white box where the video should be. I’ll try back later.

  8. MK says:

    Nice vid Angel, almost thought he was going to burst a vessel or something. :)

    Obama knows what change he’s talking about, his inner circle know what change he’s talking about, the mad-left know what change he’s going to bring, the media know it, why do you think they didn’t want to talk about it or look into his past and instead chose to pour over Palin’s expense account. It’s just the masses who think there is not such thing as the left and all that anymore who don’t know and think it’s a good thing.

    By the time they figure it out, it’ll be too late.

  9. Always On Watch says:

    That guy gives a great rant! Good find!

  10. Dinah Lord says:

    I was out of breath by the time he finished! But he sure was telling it true…

    P.S. I agree with M. Buffoon – The pink is very calming and nice!

    I want to hire that guy!!!!!!

  13. Old Soldier says:

    Woo, I had to get me a drink of water after that. As for as yomama obama, he will create change ok, but the changes he will create will cause us all to want to leave. I am glad I am from Texas, we don’t take to change very well, unless we make the changes.

  14. Mike says:

    One change that Obama will bring is to respect the constitution instead of pissing all over it.

  15. Brooke says:

    Did you see the news footage of college kids celebrating the Obama victory? One was holding a hammer and sickle flag, I KID YOU NOT.

  16. joe says:

    Refute that rationally? No, he’s 100% correct. Being a smoker, I had to stop have way through his rant and get my inhaler!

    Mike, do you have any clue what you’re talking about? Our constitution does not permit marxism.

  17. Mike says:

    Joe, do you know what you’re talking about? From allaboutphilosophy.org: “Marxism is the system of socialism of which the dominant feature is public ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange.”

    Can you show me where Obama has advocated any of that? Can you point to some of the anti-capitalist things he’s said? Feel free to consult your Sean Hannity bullet point memo and get back to me. :P

    Also: Bush over-rode the Fifth Amendment That’s just one example of Bush’s contempt for our constitution.

  18. Katie says:

    The word Obama down in Paraguay means “He who left.”. A nice thought every time you hear the name.

  19. Perri Nelson says:

    A few nickels, dimes, and pennies. That’s about all the change I’m likely to see out of an Obama administration.

    Mike, rather than going to a “philosophy for dummies” site, why don’t you actually READ the Communist Manifesto, the ultimate expression of Marxism? Then, READ this post, which illustrates how the ten principle measures by which the socialist agenda will be generally applied have been actively going on in this country since the early 20th century.

    As for anti-capitalist things he’s said, have you read his memoirs? Believe me, the redistributionist policies he wishes to implement are most definitely anti-capitalist.

    As for contempt of the Constitution, Barack Obama believes that it suffers from a “fundamental flaw” that has persisted since the time of the framers and he laments that the Warren court failed to “break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution.” That’s hardly, as you put it the attitude of someone who will “respect the constitution instead of pissing all over it.” A man with that sort of contempt for the Constitution will hardly be believable when on January 20th he swears to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    As for your claim that the executive order violates the fifth amendment, I refer you to this clause IN THE FIFTH AMENDMENT… which reads…

    “nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;”

    (emphasis added). The executive order you cite lists the specific congressional authorization under which it can be enforced and provides for due process of law. That’s not OVERRIDING the fifth amendment, it’s complying with it.

    So Mike, I ask you, since you asked the same question of Joe…

    Do you know what you’re talking about?

  20. Defiant_Infidel says:

    How about that brilliant “anti-capitalistic” notion OBamBam has of improving the economic situation by shifting an even larger portion of the tax burden to corporate entities to support his bloated socialist government spending proposals? Think that corporations are just going to take it in the shorts and “absorb” his higher tariffs, Wizard of Mike?

    The short answer is “Hell No”.

    They will cut manufacturing, production, benefits and jobs and systematically stomp the financial health of this country into the dirt. I anticipate that the Messiah and henchmen will respond will some good ole legislation forcing the corporations to maintain R&D, employment and benefits. After all, if his deplorable economic “insight” is good enough for his simple mind, it’s surely good enough to be imposed upon all of us!

    Why think when you can push the “Easy Button” and go to sleep at the wheel on Government Nipple Autopilot…?

  21. EDGE says:

    Great post as always!!! ;)

  22. Angie says:

    Love that Perri Nelson. Actually Angel, they did find in a study that violent prisoners were calmed by the color pink when it was on the walls. Same goes for Mental Patients. Now I don’t think it applies to Marxists. LOL!

    Great post! Hugs to ya!

  23. nanc says:

    slap a “chump” in front of that “change” sticker and we’ll all have the correct idea…

    BWAH!

  24. joe says:

    Thank you Perri Nelson and Defiant Infidel for saving me the hassle of answering Mike. A good job by both of you. I will reserve my cussing for later debates.

  25. Randy says:

    The change bumper sticker – that’s a good one…

  26. Mike says:

    Defiant_Infidel,

    “They will cut manufacturing, production, benefits and jobs and systematically stomp the financial health of this country into the dirt.”

    And how, exactly, would this differ from what we have after almost 8 years of Bushonomics? We’ve had tax cuts for the rich, tax cuts for business, and tax cuts for capital gains, yet unemployment is at the highest it’s been in 14 years, the stock market has lost trillions of $$ since last year, the auto industry is about to go belly up, the Fed is talking about cutting interest rates to zero percent…

    Perri Nelson,

    *reading Communist Manifesto.*

  27. Gayle says:

    Loved it, Angel! Thanks! That’s exactly how I feel. Whew! Nice to hear someone saying the same thing I’ve been saying ever since Obama started ranting about “Change.” *sigh*

  28. joe says:

    Mike, who do you think has controled both houses of Congress for the past couple of years? I’ll give you a hint, it wasn’t the Republicans. Why do you suppose that as low as Bush’s approval rating is, Congresses is even LOWER? It’s because most Americans know that the Democratically controlled Congress is MORE to blame than Bush! And if you think that things suck right now, wait till you see what happens when that twit that the media crowned as our king gets the chance to “change” things! Oh, but not to worry, you won’t be needing a job, the government will take care of you.

  29. BiasedGirl says:

    Wow. I agree with everything he says, and I have no idea how he did that on one breath. The Obama voters are shockingly uninformed and misguided.

  30. Bill Gnade says:

    Dear Angel (do I have this right?),

    First time visitor. Blessings to you. I love the name of your site.

    You’ve thrown down quite the gauntlet here: “Can anyone refute this rationally?” Well, perhaps.

    For Bob’s argument to be trustworthy, one must first accept Bob’s reportage: He claims that when he asks folks why they voted for Mr. Obama, they reply with a vacuous reference to “change.” (Actually, he asks them NOT to reference change.) If I am confident that Bob has not committed something akin to the fallacy of equivocation, then I guess his argument is valid. But is it really even true when he says “change” in this context is empty?

    Well, it surely isn’t. Barack Obama is a change in race. He is not George W. Bush. He is not a Republican. He is not pro-war vis-á-vis Iraq. He is against renewing Bush’s tax cuts. He has hinted that he supports embryonic stem cell research. The list goes on.

    Change has been a simple campaign slogan, a reduction of all that the preceding paragraph suggests. Barack Obama himself IS change. To disallow reference to change in this discussion, as Bob did, reduces the number of adjectives we might want to apply here. Had McCain won the election and I was asked not to reference the “change” McCain represents, I might indeed be reduced to talking superficially. I might say that McCain is cute, sweet, humble, proud, courageous.

    Moreover, I know how people feel when they are belligerently pressed to explain themselves. I witnessed a man I was debating about an Obama presidency simply toss up his hands and say, “Don’t you think we should once in a while toss the dice?” His statement was not entirely empty; it was code for “I see both of us have made up our minds and there is no reason to discuss this further.” Saying “change” is not entirely without epistemological import when asked about Mr. Obama and his apparent vision.

    The other thing I would like to point out is what I’ve just said at the blog that led me here Stronger Than Death, namely that Bob’s style and method are not one whit helpful to the cause of conservatism. The change that people are looking for is rooted in reason; the world, or so I believe, is starving for the truly rational. Sadly, however, reason has been so neglected that people reject it for its cheap impostor, mere coolness (or lingual temperance, if you will). Barack Obama has done one powerful thing: he has given folks the change they desired most of all, which was a change in tone. He has not once ranted or even seemed to get rattled; he has not raised his voice or shouted or screamed. Had he done any of these things, he would have gone the way of Howard Dean, who was derailed by a scream. And why was Dean derailed? Because anything that is not cool and calm; or, conversely, anything that is screamed, seems irrational and unhinged (and rooted solely in anger).

    Bob’s rant is based in the irrational, for the reasonable person knows that one’s interlocutor cannot hear one’s argument through the blistering volume. Shouting nearly always estranges. And I can’t think of a single time it has ever convinced anyone. Since Bob is ranting, he actually harms his cause, which may be our cause. And since he is essentially shouting in our face, we rationally note the concealed and faulty premise on which he has built his argument, namely, that shouting is effective. It isn’t.

    Forgive the verbosity, but you did ask. And I’ve tried to answer.

    Peace to you, and all goodness,

    BG

    Joe,

    You say that “most Americans know that the Democratically controlled Congress is MORE to blame than Bush!” (for the failing economy.) That’s an interesting assertion. I don’t suppose you can actually back it up with something resembling evidence. According to Rasmussen, who keeps track of people’s opinions regarding ten important issues, in their October survey, when asked which party they trust more to handle the economy, 51% said the Democrats, while 38% said the Republicans. Add to that the fact that just a couple of weeks ago the Democratic majorities in the House and Senate were extended due to MORE Democrats getting elected and a number of incumbent Republicans being shown the door. Add these two things together and it would seem to me that contrary to your assertion, most Americans do not in fact know that the Democratically controlled Congress is more to blame for our current economic problems than eight years of Bushonomics.

  32. Defiant_Infidel says:

    “most Americans do not in fact know that the Democratically controlled Congress is more to blame for our current economic problems than eight years of Bushonomics.”

    Hey Mikey, “most Americans” just elected OBambam, too… so we’ll see if your suggestion that the majority, this time, is correct. I think they are just as misled and fed up with BS as you are…

    I just received this from a former biz associate in Florida, who has been watching this unfold, too… I doubt it will penetrate your vacuous shell, but it will make sense to the rest of the people here.

    “As the CFO of this business that employees 140 people, I have resigned
    myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our next President, and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way.

    To compensate for these increases, I figure that the Clients will have to see an increase in our fees to them of about 8% but since we cannot increase our fees right now due to the dismal state of our economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead. This has really been eating at me for a while, as we believe we are family here and I didn’t know how to choose who will have to go.

    So, this is what I did. I strolled thru our parking lot and found 8 Obama bumper stickers on our employees’ cars and have decided these folks will be the first to be laid off. I can’t think of a more fair way to approach this problem. These folks wanted change; I gave it to them.”

    How’s your employer feeling about you today?

  33. Defiant_Infidel says:

    Oh, and btw, Mike… I have decided to raise my labor rate to any OBambam lemmings that come through my door as customers of my business too. You folks are so eager to pay homage to the new Messiah… do it with your dollars. Hell, with the increased rate of 15%, I may give priority to you perfect vacuums vs. the other 54 job backlog I currently face. You can “hope” anyway…

  34. Mike says:

    Defiant_Infidel, I have to admit that I had no idea that there might be layoffs during an Obama administration. That’s going to come as quite a shock after almost eight years of nobody getting laid off from any job at any company anywhere in America, thanks to the genius of Bushonomics. And he might have to raise his prices? Wow. I haven’t seen the price of anything go up in the past eight years! Damn that Obama! Damn him to HELL!!!!!

    I hope that your business continues to succeed under the Obama administration.
