Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Crist: I was against ObamaCare, before I was for it…before I was against it again…sort of!

Crist in March, when he was still a Republican registered as a Republican:

“I think what we need to do is go ahead and repeal this thing,” said Crist, while on “Fox News Sunday” on March 28. “Let’s start over. Let’s take an opportunity to do what’s right for the people.”

Crist in July, after he dropped his party affiliation:

After switching parties, Crist softened his rhetoric on the issue. In a July 14 interview with the Wall Street Journal, he said the law “should be modified,” and didn’t support repealing it.

Crist this morning (for those of you on the left, that means “today”):

I would have voted for it,” Crist said in the interview. “But I think it can be done better, I really do.” 

Crist clarifies his position (I think)…later this afternoon:

“If I misspoke, I want to be abundantly clear: the health care bill was too big, too expensive, and expanded the role of government far too much,” Crist said in a statement. “Had I been in the United States Senate at the time, I would have voted against the bill because of unacceptable provisions like the cuts to the Medicare Advantage program.”

Senator Kerry just called to say “Knock it off, will ya?”

I don’t know how to break it to Governor Citrus Skin, but being “independent” does NOT mean that the electorate is cool with mindless flip-flopping.  I mean, everyone knows that Crist will say anything and vote anyway that he thinks will give him maximum political gain.  That’s one thing, but it’s a totally different thing to be so openly and brazenly opportunistic to the point that it confuses everyone on all sides.

I guess that’s why he’s trailing Rubio by 10% right now.  You’re a fool, Charlie.

Obama’s DOJ shuts down prosecution of U.S.S. Cole bomber

Remember when President Kick#ss promised the U.S.S. Cole and 9/11 families justice?  Well, as is the case with his other promises, that one also had an expiration date.  “Words.  Just words.”

From the Washington comPost:

The Obama administration has shelved the planned prosecution of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged coordinator of the Oct. 2000 suicide attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, according to a court filing.

The decision at least temporarily scuttles what was supposed to be the signature trial of a major al-Qaeda figure under a reformed system of military commissions. And it comes practically on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the attack, which killed 17 sailors and wounded dozens when a boat packed with explosives ripped a hole in the side of the warship in the port of Aden.

In a filing this week in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the Justice Department said that “no charges are either pending or contemplated with respect to al-Nashiri in the near future.”

Apparently, B.O. didn’t think his personal and his party’s approval ratings were nearly low enough, so he’s going for broke.

Exit question:  With examples like this (to add to the already long list of examples), why does the left seem puzzled that there is a growing suspicion that B.O. is more Muslim than any other faith?

Left wing journalist accuses arsonist who firebombed MO Democrat’s office of being Tea Party activist, then says Tea Party can’t “take a joke”

Details:

A writer for a St. Louis alternative newsweekly tells The Daily Caller he does not regret speculating in a story that the suspect of an attempted arson of a Democratic congressman’s campaign office was a Tea Party activist.It turns out that the suspect in this week’s firebombing of Democratic Rep. Russ Carnahan’s campaign office in St. Louis was actually a liberal blogger and former paid campaign worker for Carnahan’s campaign.

“As to the legions of Tea Party adherents who are calling for my head: No, I have no regrets. I was having fun — at their expense,” River Front Times reporter Chad Garrison said in an email.

Outrage with Garrison comes from this paragraph in an article he penned about the incident. “Given what we know of him — 50, white, angry — he certainly fits the demographics of a Tea Party member.”

Garrison said his report was a “joke” and was not meant literally. He pointed to another section of the same story where he wrote: “On second thought, maybe he’s not a Tea Party member. Firebombing your opponent’s office seems a little too, um, sane for that group.”

On Thursday, Garrison said, “you’d have to be quite the literalist to believe I was actually accusing anyone of a crime. Then again, it’s becoming ever clearer that these are people who can’t take a joke and who have no emotion other than blind outrage and indignation.”

I have never been accused of being “humor-impaired”, but I don’t think I get the joke here.  I’m missing the punchline or something.

OK, let me try a joke in the mold of this Garrison fellow:

A Republican and a Democrat walk into a bar the day after the 2010 midterm elections.  The Republican asks the Democrat, “Say, how does my backside taste?”  The Democrat says, “F### you!”  😆

Get it?  “How does my backside taste?”  A retort with an invitation to self-fornicate?  How funny is that?  😆

As the first commenter points out at the blog, the MSM and the left (pardon the redundancy) is 0-for-5 in pushing the “Tea Party is violent” meme.  Let’s recap, shall we?

1.  Swarms of angry white Tea Party activists descended on Capitol Hill and called a group of black Democrat Congressmen the “N” word.  Problem is, there is NO evidence that this occurred.  Andrew Breitbart offered a $100k reward if anyone could produce any video/audio evidence that it really happened, and thus far, Breitbart’s wallet has not gotten $100k lighter.

2.  The Times Square Bomber was supposed to have been a Tea Party activist, mad at the passage of ObamaCare.  Turns out it was another bloodthirsty camelhumping Islamofascist.  Who knew, right?

3.  Last week’s cabbie stabber was supposed to be some right-wing intolerant Islamophobe nutbar.  Turns out that guy was a liberal activist.  Ouch.

4.  The nutbar who flew his plane into the Austin, TX, IRS building was allegedly a Tea Party type.  Turns out that guy was a communist, i.e. a left-winger.

5.  The above story, in Missouri.

You would think that as hard as the MSM tries its level best to accuse the Tea Party types of being rabid racists and violent whack-a-doodles, they could find at least ONE case where it’s true.  I mean, at least ONE?  Try as they might, though, they can’t do it.
