Halloween: Time To Hang Your Hateful Decorations…

19 10 2009

A repeatable reminder of just a year ago:

Now that Liberals – and the White House staff – are claiming that conservatives are full of hate and rage, I thought this Palinhalloweena good time to remind myself of the mannequin of Sarah Palin hanging from a West Hollywood home. A year ago, this was considered “art” and “holiday decor” – the act was not denounced then by candidate Obama.  The Rev. Jackson or Al Sharpton did not come to the defense. Where was Oprah? Whoopie? I don’t remember ANY liberal news organization saying this was in bad taste, reckless, hateful or …anything!

A reminder of what the homeowner said at the time:

Chad Michael Morisette, who lives in the house, told CBS 2 News that drivers and bus passengers have been stopping to snap pictures of the macabre scene.

Morisette says the effigy would be out of bounds at any other time of year, but it’s within the spirit of Halloween.

He says “it should be seen as art, and as within the month of October. It’s Halloween, it’s time to be scary it’s time to be spooky.”

But…. average Americans attending town hall meetings expressing frustration over the performance record of the people THEY have hired are considered “mobs” and “hateful”. A politician that shouts “You Lie” when the President was lying is called hateful. It’s a funny standard liberals have, isn’t it!

Yeah it is time to be scared and spooky: Obama is in the White House, we have record deficits, no war strategy, a bogged down health care bill that most Americans say they don’t need, Cash for Anything, record unemployment…there is more scary stuff than there is candy in a 10-year-old’s trick-or-treat bag.

Repeatable Recap: Obama’s Involvement in NY Governor’s Race

23 09 2009

Somehow, with a recession, high unemployment, two wars and much more, Obama has time to worry about the state of New York’s upcoming Governor’s race. Enough time to worry and get involved. He sent word to Governor David Paterson – a Democrat –  that he wants him to withdraw from running for reelection. It seems that Paterson is not popular, and Obama wants Democrat Andrew Cuomo to have a clear path to office. The problem: it is unusual for a President to get involved in state matters, plus Paterson is one of only two African American Governors. And Paterson is blind.

Here’s a repeatable recap – to date – there is sure to be more so check back:

March 17, 2008: Eliot Spitzer(D) resigns as Governor of New York because of a prostitution scandal. David Paterson succeeded him that day.

September 20, 2009: Obama sends a request to Governor Paterson that he withdraw from the Governor’s race. The request was proposed by his advisors and approved by the President.

It was a bad week to ask one of two Black governors to change their political course. This was the week former President Jimmy Carter said outrage to Obama was because he was black, and also the week where a black rapper jumped up on stage at a music awards show to grab the microphone from a white artist – only to proclaim that another black artist should have won the award. Obama called the rapper a “jackass”.

September 20, 2009: Paterson says something along the lines of “get lost”.

September 23, 2009: Paterson’s wife, Michelle, says it is wrong for the White House to get involved in a local race. “David’s the first African American governor in the state of New York and he’s being asked to get out of the race. It’s very unusual and seems unfair. I never heard of a President asking a governor not to run.”

September 23, 2009: New York state’s top Democratic leaders sent messages of support for the Governor – saying some are behind him “150 percent.”
