Last year on September 11, the Obama administration sent a clear message to America’s diplomatic corps that it considered the security of our diplomatic posts around the world to be of little importance, and that little to nothing would be done to ensure the safety of our diplomats should anything untoward occur at their posts. Our people in Benghazi paid a terrible price for that.
This week, the Obama administration has sent a similar message to our troops. The message, in essence, is this: we respect the military and its traditions so little that should you be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice and lay down your life for your nation, we won’t bother to ensure that your grieving loved ones will be able to make the trip to meet your caskets as they arrive back on American soil; and we don’t really care if you can’t afford a funeral.
Even to those wearing rose-colored Obama glasses, it is becoming increasingly clear that there is no honor in this administration. Many of us have known it since the beginning, but since his second term began, this President’s true colors are beginning to shine very brightly indeed. And the colors aren’t pretty.
These, of course, are just two of the most recent in a long series of treacherous, despicable, contemptible, disgraceful, and blackguardly events that this administration has inflicted on the American people and the U. S. Constitution since Obama’s first inauguration. And he will not stop until he and his lackeys are out of office. 2016 can’t come soon enough. And by then it might be too late to save our nation.
In light of these, and the long string of similar events, I will no longer refer to this presidency as the Obama administration; henceforth, the terrible time from January 2009 until January 2017, will be known as The Years of Dishonor. Never has this great country had a more unprincipled person in its highest office. I pray we never will again.
2008-2016: The Years of Dishonor.

I know. I don’t care. I’m going to post it anyway.
With apologies to the
late, great Gary Larsen.
UPDATE: He’s not dead!

Given the situation in the Middle East–four murdered American citizens, U.S. embassies and consulates attacked, embassy staffers desperately issuing an apologia for American values–one might think that Obama might settle down and do some actual Presidentin’, to calm the storm and slow the rising waters, so to speak.
But one would be wrong, of course. Charlie Sperling of the Washington Examiner highlighted an interesting quote from an interview Obama did Wednesday night with CBS. His statement make it clear that he is now trying to rewrite his administration’s initial reaction to the Arab “Sprung”.
“[The Embassy statement] didn’t come from me. It didn’t come from Secretary Clinton,” Obama said. “It came from folks on the ground who are potentially in danger. And my tendency is to cut those folks a little bit of slack when they’re in that circumstance rather than try to question their judgment from the comfort of a campaign office.” [Emphasis mine]
“From the comfort of a campaign office.” No, Mr. President, that would be Mitt Romney in a campign office.
You are the actual president and when disaster strikes, eyes turn to you in your current job (which you are trying so desperately to keep), regardless of whether you’d rather be on the links or schmoozing with a few rich limousine liberals and eating Waygu beef hors d’oeuvres instead of doing the actual hard work of taking proper care of the country.
Perhaps you wouldn’t have to try so hard if you’d actually man up and do the damn job, rather than being on a perpetual campaign.
So get your skinny butt out of your comfortable chair in your comfortable campaign office and do some real work for a change, instead of jetting off to Vegas.
You may get a kick from campaigns, but we don’t get a kick out of you… we’re just going to kick you out.

I was enjoying the response to the MoveOn.org flowchart at iOwnTheWorld when I noticed an advertisement on the sidebar for Alan Grayson. “Put Progressive Champion Alan Grayson back in Congress!” the ad crowed. But given Mr. Grayson’s recent troubles, I took the liberty of modifiyng the ad slightly.

Solyndra. LightSquared. AttackWatch. Operation Fast & Furious. US credit downgraded. Vacations on Martha’s Vinyard. Not-so shovel-ready jobs. Zero jobs created in August (first time since WWII). The list goes on and on. So far, our President hasn’t figured out how big a loser he becoming; he still seems to think that everyone loves him.
Surrounded as he is by a gang of hand-picked thugs from Chicago and inside the Beltway, Obama seems to think he’s doing a great job, and that his agenda is being embraced by all right-thinking people. The reality, of course, is far different. His stumbling and bumbling has sent this country swirling the drain, and it may prove to be too late to recover. And yet, his oblivious attitude reminds me of someone… Just can’t quite remember whom… Ah, yes, I’ve got it!
Ladies and gentleman, I give you President Eric Von Zipper!

A moment of prayer at yesterday’s World Trade Center ceremony:
At a guess, the New York Times desperately wanted to morph that golden glow on Obama’s face into a halo, but it would have been just too blatant. Despite that lack, Joah of Argghh! gives this photo the perfect title: “Ground Ego”.
