Opposing Obama, How Pot-Growers Prevented Legalization, Who wants WikiLeaks chief placed on U.S. 'kill list?', Idiot Liberal: "Hand It Out to the Poor So We Can Save the Economy" "Tax Cuts Don't Create Jobs, Unemployment Benefits Do" Guess the Religion; "I'll Keel You!"

Opposing Obama - The American Spectator

Gird up for battle. The next two years will be a rocky road.

Barack Obama is no Bill Clinton. He's far more leftist. He's at least equally as ruthless (which is really saying something, because both Clintons are among the most ruthless American politicians of our lifetimes). His outlook is far more alien to middle America, in that he really does believe much of middle America is benighted -- clinging wrongly to God and guns, unable to think clearly under pressure, too stupid or ignorant or bourgeois to know what's in their own best interests. And he doesn't share Clinton's neediness for short-term, person-to-person, feel-the-brotherly-love positive reinforcement. His goal isn't personal "connection" with voters; it's long-term adulation or adoration, verging on worshipfulness -- an adulation that recognizes him as a world-transformational figure, a virtual gift to mankind.

Damn even his fans are starting to diss him...

Obama, the Great Placator, needs to throw some elbows- Washington post
Watching President Obama walk back to the White House with a busted lip from a recent basketball game, I was hoping he would step toward the TV cameras and show off his scar. Taste the blood in his mouth, tell us that he'll just have to take it out on the Republicans or something.

Instead, Obama trudged on by, nursing his wounds, looking like a kid who had just been sucker-punched in a schoolyard brawl.

And then came this account in The Post on Monday:

"A White House official with knowledge of the incident, and eager to make the president look as tough as possible, said that [Reynaldo Decerega, director of programs for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute and owner of the flying elbow,] required a hospital visit after the collision and received some stitches himself."

I don't mean to pile on with more criticism of Obama as a wimp, but a White House spin doctor to make him look tough after a pickup basketball game? Man up, Obama. Let us see you with blood on your teeth and fire in your eyes. Or does being the first black president mean you can never show yourself to be a man in full?

How Pot-Growers Prevented Legalization - The American Conservative

California was on the verge of legalizing marijuana—until profit-hungry growers just said no.

By Kelley Beaucar Vlahos

There’s a scene in the Bogart-Bacall noir classic “Key Largo” wherein one of the gangsters at the hotel starts rolling at the mouth to distract skittish guests from the hurricane outside. “I bet you two or three years we get Prohibition back,” he says almost wistfully. “This time we make it stick … absolutely, yeah.” Prohibition had been great for business. It made kings of men.

While it would be unfair to compare California marijuana growers and distributors—legal or otherwise—to Prohibition-era gangsters, the failure of Golden State voters on Nov. 2 to legalize the possession and sale of marijuana was partly due to cultivators’ opposition. Self-interest trumped what could have been the most significant step toward decriminalizing marijuana since the herb was outlawed by the federal government in 1937. Growers saw their piece of a lucrative market threatened, say critics, so they cast their ballots accordingly.

Look who wants WikiLeaks chief placed on U.S. 'kill list' -WND

Says 'this is a deadly confrontation between radical Islam and the U.S.'

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says his action "puts people's lives in danger," and U.S. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., has called for his website to be declared a foreign terrorist organization, but radio host and former White House leaks-stuffer G. Gordon Liddy has a more severe step in mind for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange: kill him.

"Julian Assange is a severe national security threat to the U.S., and that then leads to what to do about it," Liddy told WND. "This fellow Anwar al-Awlaki – a joint U.S. citizen hiding out in Yemen – is on a 'kill list' [for inciting terrorism against the U.S.]. Mr. Assange should be put on the same list."

"I'm not surprised that G. Gordon Liddy wants Julian Assange killed," commentator Bill Press told WND. "He admits he once tried to figure out how to kill journalist Jack Anderson. Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I think people should have to commit a crime and be convicted before getting the death penalty. And, so far, Assange has done neither. The best treatment for Julian Assange is to ignore him – and focus on who's leaking to him."
