In 1644 Rev. Samuel Rutherford published LEX, REX, The Law & the Prince to demonstrate that the natural law is above the King, Some 364 years later The Invisible Hand Blog is born after a historic election a Reagan Conservative born in the 60's molded in the Reagan years begins this blog to demonstrate the God given Unalienable rights given to every person by God. God bless the truth and let the truth be raised.
On the way to the White House, Barack Obama won the hearts and minds of liberals and conservatives alike. Still the engine at the core of the Obama election machine was unmistakably driven by the progressives who rallied behind his call for "change." Now in what many say is a rapid slide to the right, embracing many of Bush's failed policies, more than a few loyal supporters now find themselves grumbling in discontent.
WHERE IS TOTUS? Obama went off TOTUS and this is what he said, "THERE IS SOMETHING about AUGUST GOING INTO SEPTEMBER WHERE EVERYBODY IN WASHINGTON GETS ALL WEE WEED UP." I do not know about you, but I have never heard that phrase before, maybe it is a phrase that comes from the makers of Roundup, you know, the weed killers, or maybe and probably more likely Obama's college picture of him smoking what appears to be a reefer is what is meant by "all wee weed up."
Whatever it means, I just want to thank President Barack Hussein Obama for expanding the English language, I now have a phrase I can use in court, "You see judge my client got all wee weed up and that is why he drove drunk." I can't wait to use the all wee weed up defense, hey it might just let my client go free.
The inevitable has happened, Obama did away with TOTUS and went off the cuff to answer a question that resulted into a "BIG MESS" after that he put on a Fonzie Jacket and some water skis and yes, Obama did the one thing conservatives have been patiently anticipating, yes "Obama jumped the shark."
Interestingly, Leigh Scott in his post "Has Liberalism Jumped the Shark?' speaks to the fact Liberalism has jumped the shark, but we all know the poster child of Liberalism is Obama, and Leigh Scott sums it up very nicely:
"I say its (Obama) “jumped the shark” because, without a strong set of timeless principals to guide it, this political ideology (Obama) is a fad. It’s had a lot of great, good looking, and popular spokespeople (Obama). Last November it had an awesome ad campaign (one so good, Pepsi apparently felt the need to steal it). It’s all style and no substance. And like the Spice Girls, Beany Babies, Cabbage Patch Kids, and the leisure suit it is destined to fade into obscurity."
The Bold (Obama's) were added by me to add the desired effect that the poster child of liberalism has in fact jumped the shark. My only other addition is when Obama goes off TOTUS "Obama acts stupidly." As for me, I am very happy about that.
Here is Obama and his weekly Press Conference, I just wish it was UNDERDOG and not Obama. I am getting ready to watch, but I leave you with this one quote: "DO YOU REALLY WANT THE GUY THAT RESCUED the ECONOMY to RESCUE the Healthcare System?"
I find it very strange like an episode of "Twilight Zone" Obama continues his political newspeak. I heard the words, I read the words, I meditated on the words, Obama said the Stimulus package "worked as intended." But I laughed and laughed and laughed, I even laughed because I felt sorry for our delusional President, does he really believe what he says or does he even know what he says, or is he like the emperor with his new clothes, his staff and trusted advisers have convinced him he is actually wearing the grandest outfit fit for the richest King, even though he is wearing nothing at all. Whatever the truth is, Obama is wrong and Roger L. Simon captures the truth in his post (Here in its entirety):
Many of us remember the immortal words of the late, great Leroy Robert “Satchel” Paige: “and don’t look back - something might be gaining on you.” He was referring to longevity, of course, but it might as well have been political longevity, which can be considerably more fragile than even our own fragile life spans.
The “something” that might be gaining on Barack Obama these days is a fellow named Eric Cantor, the minority whip. He seems to be the most articulate spokesman for what are increasingly obvious truths - that Obama’s “stimulus” plan is a misfire or maybe worse, a drastic mistake. Cantor recently said the stimulus bill was “full of pork- barrel spending, government waste and massive borrowing cleverly called ‘stimulus.’ The plain truth is that President Obama’s economic decisions have not produced jobs, have not produced prosperity, and have not worked.”
One look around us and it’s hard to deny that. The stock market these days would seem to be agreeing with Cantor too. Meanwhile, Obama is now trying to reassure us by insisting his $787 billion stimulus bill “has worked as intended.”
Intended?! That’s sort of like saying Andy Roddick blew two sets to Roger Federer to set up Roger for the fifth. It transcends “spin” and goes into the realm of outright BS. It’s interesting to see Bloomberg picking up on the “worked as intended” line in their lead, apparently reacting to what we might politely call its disingenuousness as well - another break in the media dikes.
As for Cantor, is the Virginia congressman the standard bearer the Republicans have been looking for? Way too early to tell obviously, but he does not seem to have the problem - let’s call it a media-emphasized information gap - that, alas, Palin has for now. But, ironically, the very accuracy of what Cantor is saying at this moment may come back to bite him in 2012. My (admittedly blind) guess is that the Republicans will come back strong in 2010, placing most of Obama’s plans (stimulus, tax, health care, etc.) in eternal gridlock. This in turn will cause the economy and the stock market to bounce back. The country will be happy again and ready to reelect Obama. Just one scenario, folks, crazy as it seems. [Isn't that Clinton's story, in a way?-ed. What did Harry Truman say? "If you're looking for justice in Washington, get a dog." That was a "friend." Oh, right.]
"OBAMA'S NEWSPEAK DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSED TO REALITY"
Jennifer Rubin has a spot-on piece titled, "When Political Spin and Economic Realities Collide." In her post, she writes about “two Americas” — a political one (then still fully enthralled with Barack Obama) and an economic one (already struggling with worsening unemployment and a downward spiral in investor and consumer confidence).
Eventually the two realms — economic and political — will collide. As elections draw near politicians on both sides and the MSM political coverage become very interested all of a sudden in the CPI, the Dow Jones, the trade deficit, and other financial indicators of our economic health.
She further goes on to state that the collision has taken place and the proof is in the President's poll numbers:
Rasmussen shows just how dramatic a change we have seen:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 30% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Thirty-eight percent (38%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8. … Thirty-nine percent (39%) now give the president good or excellent marks for handling the economy while 43% say he is doing a poor job. Those are by far his lowest ratings yet on the economy. … Overall, 51% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s performance so far. Forty-eight percent (48%) now disapprove.
And the reason Obama's political fantasy is fragmenting is because reality is factual and the economic facts cannot be ignored, Obama's spending is doing nothing to thwart the downward spiraling of the USA's economy. Jennifer Rubin continues here analysis stating, "not even the New York Times can ignore the economic reality and its impact on the public’s assessment of the president’s performance:
With unemployment already at 9.5 percent and likely to exceed 10 percent, much higher than White House officials predicted back in February, Mr. Obama has been facing attacks that his $787 billion stimulus program was either too timid or wrong-headed or both. Now, just five months after Congress agreed on the plan, with only a fraction of the money actually out the door, Washington is debating the need for a second round of stimulus amid economic and political crosscurrents."
Jon Stewart has even started to lose optimism in President Obama with his, "That's Great Now Fix the Economy:'
In reading the article on AP, "Conservative Democrats BREAK RANKS ON HEALTH CARE" Obama was quoted saying that if Congress does not act on Health Care Reform by August 1, "I never believe anything is do or die." In the words of John Stossel, "Give Me a Break." Everything about this President the Grim Reaper has been DO OR DIE. Lets take a look:
1)Obama Stimulus Package;
Obama, "If we do not pass this Stimulus package now, all jobs will be lost and the world shall end."
2)Fiats purchase of Chrysler;
Obama, "If this does not happen Chrysler shall die."
3)Government Takeover of GM with quick Bankruptcy;
Obama, "If the government does not seize control of GM, GM will not exist in the future."
4)CAP & TRADE;
Obama, "If the United States does not cut carbon emissions by half, the world will die and we shall no longer exist."
5)Health Care Reform;
Obama, "If my health care reform does not go into effect, Americans will die.'
6)Stimulus Package II (The Sequel coming SOON);
Obama, "If there is not a second stimulus package, we will all die."
Obama, "If my budget is not approved, we shall all surely die."
I could go on and on and on, but guess what? You got the point, and Obama is always playing fast and loose with his teleprompter, Obama as you know, it is all DO or DIE, because Obama is like the Grim Reaper, Obama is like the Raven, NEVERMORE, NEVERMORE, NEVERMORE.
"Badonkadonk" is a word I learned well ahead of Trace Adkins country hit "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" because I taught two years in an urban school in Kansas City, Kansas. "Badonkadonk" is a great word that once you know the meaning, the word visualizes the meaning.
President Obama has the eye for the "Badonkadonk" the proof is in the pictures, just be careful little president's eyes what you see, it may be front page internet news within minutes.
I wonder what Michelle thinks of her husband's wandering eye? By the way, here is a side view of the First Lady's "Badonkadonk."
today 33% Strongly DISAPPROVE and 33% Strongly APPROVE creating a BIG FAT ZERO for Obama's Approval Index. One thing that is on the rise is more people are starting to say that this is Obama's economy now. Another point in the poll is that American's are also evenly divided on health care. My thought is, that if Obama continues to drive for Obama Care, you will see his approval index drop to negative numbers, my only hope is that he keeps the trend going, so that he will be a one term and out president.
This last week when Japanese News broke the story that North Korea planned a July 4 missile attack on Hawaii, I knew that Obama would not stand for this. Hawaii is Obamaland. No, Obamaland is not a new destination theme park, but the birthplace (Maybe, the adopted birthplace) of Obama. In fact, when I visited last week the Island of Oahu, at the airport, I purchased a copy of the book "Obamaland" byRon Jacobs, you are probably wondering why I would spend $19.59 on a book about Obama? Well, it answers the question "who is Barack Obama? and has exclusive photos & maps with new facts & more." It even has the copy of Obama's birth certificate, the same one that has been circulated all over the internet by fact check. But, the real reason for the purchase was to find the best Hawaiian Shave Ice on Oahu.
Hawaiian Shave Ice is a legend. Here on the mainland, we refer to it as sno-cones, however, Hawaii shave ice has the consistency of real SNOW unlike in the states where a sno-cone is ice. Authentic shave ice is made with a block of ice that is rotated under a motorized razor-sharp blade. This creates a soft snow-like mound that is packed in either a paper cone or a plastic dish and flavored syrup is poured over the ice. My favorite is cherry and pineapple. The picture above is Obama with his daughters enjoying shave ice from "Island Snow" in Kailua, Hawaii on Oahu.
So, I was not surprised to hear Obama reassuring Hawaii that the U.S.A. is prepared against any threat from the North Koreans.
"This administration — and our military is fully prepared for any contingencies," Obama said Friday during an interview with CBS News' Harry Smith, to be broadcast Monday on "The Early Show."
"I don't want to speculate on hypotheticals," Obama said. "But I want ... to give assurances to the American people that the t's are crossed and the i's are dotted in terms of what might happen."
President is like any man, a man is going to protect those things he cares about the most, as with a man's family or a man's favorite food, he is not going to give it up without a fight. I believe President Obama will do everything in his power to defeat the threat of Kim Il Jong, because if he does not, it might be the end of Hawaiian Shave Ice, and for me and Obama that would be a very bad thing.
