Barack Obama: The Tax Man

February 11, 2008

Barack Obama and Jesse JacksonThere’s no doubt that if the Democrat party takes the White House and Congress in the coming election, that the old days of soak the rich and tax and spend will return with an unhinged fury.  This is especially the case if hope-monger Barry Obama gets the nod.  Over at The Corner, Larry Kudlow provides the numbers that will keep you up at night and wreck our economy.

The Wall Street Journal’s Steve Moore says Obama’s tax plan would add up to a 39.6 percent personal income tax, a 52.2 percent combined income and payroll tax, a 28 percent capital-gains tax, a 39.6 percent dividends tax, and a 55 percent estate tax. In other words, Sen. Obama is a very-high-tax candidate.

Yikes!  And if Barack Obama does indeed run against our presumptive nominee, John McCain, you can be nearly sure Obambi wins unless people begin to see through his empty rhetoric.  Barry talks a lot about “change,” but clearly after he’s done with his Sheriff of Nottingham act, change will be all that’s left in your pocket.

When it comes down to a battle between Clinton and Obama, I’m rooting for injuries.  The next four years following the 2008 election could very well be the end of America as we know it.  I wish I had some advice to give, but I’m afraid the future is looking rather bleak.  With Democrats in control of three branches of government, the end cannot be far off.

Pray for America.

The Iowa Caucus Results

January 3, 2008

Iowa CaucusJust a quick post, which I will update in a bit, maybe.

I was right.

  1. Huckabee 34%
  2. Romney 25%
  3. McCain 13%
  4. Thompson 13%

And I may still be right about the party of treason:

  1. Obama 38%
  2. Clinton 29%
  3. Edwards 30%

Although Clinton and Edwards are still locked in mortal combat for second place.

Chris Dodd (DemocRAT) will drop out of the race.

Chuck Norris is a happy man tonight.

It’s been a good night for America. G-d bless Iowa. G-d bless you all.

Update: It looks like Fred Thompson may have moseyed his way into third place at the last minute. Congratulations to grandpa Fred.

Update 2: Ha ha – Kookspinach and Gravel got 0 votes! Dodd got 1, Biden got 23, Richardson got 51. Note to Kookspinach and Gravel: give it up. It’s over. Ron Paul at 10% gets 5th. Buh bye, Ronnie. It’s downhill from here. Ghouliani got a whopping 4%. So much for your winning strategy, Rudy.

Update 3: Joe Biden to drop out as well after an anemic performance. Please drop out too, Rudy Giuliani.

Update 4: Further predictions: Hunter won’t stick it out much longer, although he might well be on the short list for Secretary of Defense.  Cox will keep up his silent running candidacy, but nobody will notice.  Those who do will laugh.  Paul will stick it out to the bitter end, taking home lots of suckers’ money just like the last time he ran.  Thankfully he hasn’t got a prayer.  Let me know if I’ve missed anything.

Everyone Hates Mitt and HillDog

December 22, 2007

I Hate YouWell not everyone, but these two horrid candidates, Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton, have the highest negatives, in terms of voter resistance, of the entire field.  And that includes kooks like Ron Paul and Dennis Kookspinach.  Now, that’s really saying something!

Among the leading Presidential candidates, New York Senator Hillary Clinton and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney have the highest level of core opposition among voters. Forty-seven percent (47%) say they will vote against each of these candidates no matter who else is on the ballot.

Oops, maybe I spoken too soon.  Denny and Ronnie are hardly “leading” candidates.  So never mind about that.  But what’s also interesting is who’s on the other extreme, as far as the fickle public is concerned.  Who do voters hate the least?  The answer may surprise you.

At the opposite end of the spectrum is Arizona Senator John McCain. For the second straight month, McCain finds himself with the smallest level of core opposition–just 33% say they will definitely vote against him.

Polling DataAs for the rest of the field…

42% will definitely vote against Giuliani, 38% against Edwards, 36% against Obama, 34% against Huckabee, 34% against Thompson.

So McCain barely edges out Fred! and Huck in terms of not being hated.  What’s also odd, however is this revelation:

As for core support, Clinton is also on top. Thirty percent (30%) will definitely vote for her and 29% will definitely vote for Obama. Edwards and Giuliani have core support from 23%, McCain from 22%, Thompson and Huckabee from 21%, and Romney from 19%.

So let’s see, Hillary and Mitt are the most hated, while HillDog has the most core support while Mitt has the least.  Romney’s dead last.  But the Rombots in that 19% pool really swoon for the plastic phoney.  It’s actually rather incredible to read comments on blogs written by these folks.  They would literally die for Mittens.

Summary: Mitt is a double negative, Hillary is a zero.

Confused?  Me too!  This is one strange primary season!

Maybe eyeon08 or Ed Morrissey can help untangle this mess and explain it for us.  I hope so.  Because, frankly, I’m lost.

Deranged Clinton Fan Takes Hostages, Begs for Help, Surrenders

November 30, 2007

UnhingedNow that it’s all over and ended without any bloodshed or injuries, the strange tale of what happened at Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign headquarters can at last be told. In a bizarre display of unhinged moonbattery, a deranged Clinton fan and advocate for universal (socialized) health care and a perfect representative of the today’s average leftist, marched into Clinton’s campaign offices with a bomb strapped to his chest demanding to speak with the lady Senator and Democrat party Presidential candidate. Yikes. At first I thought it might have been Mike Stark, professional stalker for the nutroots.

And what did this fervent Clinton admirer want from the lady Senator from New York? Health care! Specifically, mental health care! Considering how nutty Clinton and her husband are, this young man was obviously barking up the wrong tree. Or he was just barking. Barking mad.

When Hillary failed to show up in a nurse’s outfit to tend to the mad bomber’s mental health problems (probably rooted in liberalism), he started taking hostages. This is ironic, since that’s exactly what HillaryCare would do to American taxpayers, but I digress. After a tense six hour wait, a blink of the eye compared to the waiting period to see a doctor under socialized medicine, the poor fellow got tired of waiting, maybe even realizing how horrific it would be to actually meet Hillary face to face, and he peacefully surrendered.

All in all, a happy end to a rather tense day. But there’s more to this story than a crazy person taking people hostage and making unreasonable demands. Much more. And this incident is a perfect illustration with what’s been going wrong in our country. Specifically with the disloyal opposition.

This is what happens when liberals don’t get their way. They obsess, hate, think crazy thoughts, and eventually strap a bomb to their chests (literally or figuratively), demand that everyone pays attention to them while they scream their unreasonable and confused demands intermixed with leftist talking points, and finally, in the end, they give up when confronted with reality. Well sometimes. At least this time everything ended with nobody getting hurt. But what about the next time a liberal timebomb goes off?

Actually Hilldog herself, no stranger to mental illness, summed it up the best:

It appears he was someone who needed help and sought attention in absolutely the wrong way,” she said.

And that, my friends, is liberalism in a nutshell.

So it shall be forever written that on November 30th, 2007, a perfectly encapsulated microcosm of the liberal mind and leftist behavior manifested itself in simple terms that the entire world could understand.

And some people claim there’s no G-d. Here’s your proof, skeptics.

For a more detailed blow-by-blow accounting of today’s Clinton crisis, you can’t do much better than Hot Air and Michelle Malkin.

Final Thought: This would obviously never happen to the GOP.  Packing heat has its advantages.

Hillary Having an Affair? With a Woman?

November 26, 2007

Drudge highlights the scoop. Like husband like wife?

Hillary Affair

The caption reads: “Hillary Clinton has been accused of having an affair with Huma Abedin.”

Exit question: will this revelation hurt or help the Clinton campaign?

Update: Humina, humina, humina.

Joke of the Day

November 19, 2007

Richard Nixon LaughingThis was passed along via email by B4C reader, DaddyWarbucks:

Hillary Clinton voted about $600,000 funding for a Woodstock (rock festival) Museum federal funding bill – money earmarked and thrown into a massive funding bill.

John McCain’s debate zinger that contrasted Clinton’s earmark support for a Woodstock museum with his own experience in the Woodstock era — “I would have gone, but I was tied up at the time.”

== he was a POW in North Vietnam at the time ==

And it’s all true.  Good zinger, McCain!

Rudy Giuliani: Fox News Candidate?

November 15, 2007

Judith ReganCuriouser and curiouser. I recently wrote a post about the cozy Giuliani-Kerik connection, where I mentioned the ground zero lovenest where Bernie Kerik and Judith Regan frequently met during the 9/11 cleanup in New York. Now Judith Regan is talking, and if what she says is true, it’s explosive.

Publisher Judith Regan is a former Fox News employee. And she is alleging that Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, which owns Fox News, favors Rudolph Giuliani for the GOP nomination. It would seem that Murdoch also is partial to Hillary Clinton. He held a fundraiser for her after all. So it would also seem that he is playing both sides. Crafty old Australian, isn’t he?

Hillary Clinton on the Cheap

November 10, 2007

Shrillary ClintonIt’s obvious that the Clintons despise the little people. True to form Hillary Clinton stiffed a waitress on a tip. Take that, working slobs!

NPR is also reporting that when the Clinton team came into the restaurant where Esterday works — no one left a tip — even Senator Clinton — whose meal was on the house.

And if they’ll lie about the tip, they’ll lie about anything.

The Clinton campaign denies this — insisting it paid $157 for food and left a $100 tip. The manager confirms someone paid, though it remains unclear why the waitress apparently got nothing.

So much for the plight of working people. Tipgate: just another in a long line of Clinton scandals.

Update: Even head Kos kook, Marcos “screw them” Zuniga admits that Clinton lied, waitresses died. Heh, indeed.
