Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

David Gregory to Newt: Say, isn’t it racist to note that food stamp use has skyrocketed under Obama?

While I have been piling on Newt recently, and rightly so, this is one instance where I have to defend the big goof.  From Meet the Press, hosted by hostile-to-conservatives (yet untouchably “objective”) David Gregory:

DAVID GREGORY, HOST: What, what about jobs? Jobless rate now at 9 percent. You gave a speech on Friday in Georgia, and you said the following about this president:

(Videotape)

NEWT GINGRICH: You want to be a country that creates food stamps, in which case frankly Obama’s is an enormous success. The most successful food stamp president in American history. Or do you want to be a country that creates paychecks?

(End videotape)

GREGORY: First of all, you gave a speech in Georgia with language a lot of people think could be coded racially-tinged language, calling the president, the first black president, a food stamp president.

Gingrich wasn’t having it:

GINGRICH: Oh, come on, David.

GREGORY: What did you mean? What was the point?

REP. GINGRICH: That’s, that’s bizarre. That–this kind of automatic reference to racism, this is the president of the United States. The president of the United States has to be held accountable. Now, the idea that–and what I said is factually true. Forty-seven million Americans are on food stamps. One out of every six Americans is on food stamps. And to hide behind the charge of racism? I have–I have never said anything about President Obama which is racist.

Numbers are racist.  So are stats.  And statistical numbers.  And numerical statistics.  Racist, all of them.  And if you look at numbers, you’re a racist, too.

This has been the m.o. of the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) since the man-child announced he was running in 2007: any criticism of his policies or the havoc they have wreaked upon this country will automatically and reflexively be chalked up to racism.

That’s one of the many things I’ve always loathed about modern liberalism: for an ideology that fancies itself to be intellectually nuanced, its adherents sure are a bunch of emotional twits devoid of any real rational thought or critical thinking skills.  Just like my blog’s subtitle says about liberalism: Why think when you can feel?

As for NBC and Gregory: nope…no liberal media bias!

Pelosi: We have to pass ObamaCare to find out what’s in it. Her constituents: We found out, and it’s killing us.

From San Fransicko:

Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama’s administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Northern California district.

That’s in addition to the 27 new waivers for health care or drug companies and the 31 new union waivers Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services approved.

Pelosi’s district secured almost 20 percent of the latest issuance of waivers nationwide

“ObamaCare for thee, but not for me!”  I guess it pays to have connections, right?  But why would Queen Botox’s district’s businesses even need waivers from ObamaCare?

Before hanging up on TheDC, Tru Spa’s owner said new government health care regulations, both the federal-level Obamacare and new local laws in Northern California, have “devastated” the business. “It’s been bad for us,” he said, without divulging his name, referring to the new health care restrictions.

Huh.  Seems that Peloco was telling her San Franistan constituents to s#ck it while she curried favor with ObaMao.  But my heart doesn’t bleed for the Bay Area: they keep sending San Fran Nan back to DC.  So deal with it, chumps.

USA hits debt ceiling, so feds plunder pensions

Conservatives: You know, maybe we should just spend less money.

Liberals:  That’s just crazy talk.  No, thanks, we’ll just raid federal employee pensions and replace the confiscated money with IOU’s.  That’s working like gangbusters for Social Security so far, isn’t it?

Our buddies from Dumb and Dumber illustrate how sound this is (you may need to click through to Youtube to watch this, since for some reason, they’ve disabled embedding this video.  But DO IT, since it’s only 1:11 long).
