“Palin: Obama’s State of Union Full of ‘WTF’ Moments”

Indeed. Even Michael Savage is starting to warm up to Palin and her unflinching willingness to call a spade a spade. So to speak. And not there’s anything wrong with that.

Unsurprisingly, the mainstream media, fresh off its hectoring of Republicans to renounce their violent, hate-filled rhetoric (a hectoring issued without a hint of irony after that same media rushed to blame a senseless murder spree on conservative rhetoric) is finding this particular utterance the end to the recent golden age of political “civility,” a period of peace that reached its zenith with some ribbons and a televised congressional date night. By my count, this latest murder makes at least 7 deaths Palin is responsible for this month alone.

The anti-semitic whore.

That Sarah Palin has rejected this phony appeal to “civility” — and refuses to shut her pie hole at the direction of the left — is proof positive that she was the stronger player on the McCain/Palin ticket.

And I suspect that she’ll soon feel compelled to forgo graciousness and call out McCain for his constant fluffing of the statist agenda.

When she does, we’ll have turned an important symbolic corner, I think. Because like it or not, Palin is one of the most important voices in conservatism today.

  1. In before the troll?

  2. Well I’ll be…

  3. And I suspect that she’ll soon feel compelled to forgo graciousness and call out McCain for his constant fluffing of the statist agenda.

    That would be really, really awesome.

  4. WTF moments? Was That Funny?

  5. I liked this part:

    In certain ways, Palin is a revolutionary leader and the Tea Party movement is a revolutionary movement. For nearly a hundred years, the Left in its various permutations has captured Western policy by controlling the elite discourse from New York and Los Angeles to London to Paris to Tel Aviv. By making it “politically incorrect” to assert claims of Western, Judeo-Christian morality or advocate robust political, economic and military policies, the Left has made it socially and professionally costly for people to think freely and believe in their countries.

    Outlaws!

  6. Speaking of assaults on presumed “antisemitism”, yikes.

  7. Governor Palin Chooses Young America’s Foundation’s Reagan Ranch Center as the Backdrop for her Speech to Honor the 100th Anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s Birth

    Young America’s Foundation announced today that Governor Sarah Palin will give the keynote address on February 4 at its Reagan 100 Opening Banquet at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, California, for the 100th anniversary celebration of President Reagan’s birthday. Governor Palin was Alaska’s youngest and first woman governor and the first female Vice Presidential candidate in the history of the GOP.

  8. From sdferr’s link:

    “This is not an issue for liberal or conservative rabbis, but an issue for all,” said Mik Moore, chief strategic officer of Jewish Funds for Justice.

    Why do I just know that Jewish Funds for Justice is a left of centre community organising group?

  9. JFJ receives funding from George Soros’s Open Society Institute, which gave the organization $150,000 in 2009 and $200,000 in 2010.

  10. What distinguishes Palin from other conservative leaders in the U.S. and makes her an important figure worldwide is her indifference to the views of the Left’s opinion makers. Her capacity to steer debate in a way no other conservative politician can owes entirely to the fact that she does not seek to win over leftist elites. She seeks to unseat them.

    The same can be said of the Tea Party. The reason it frightens the Left, and the Republican leaders who owe their positions to their willingness to accept the Left’s basic agenda, is because it does not accept the Left’s policy platform.
    [...]
    The Left’s campaign against Palin is not just about Palin. If she is discredited for standing up to blood libels then no one in the U.S. or anywhere else can expect to succeed in moving past the failed and dangerous leftist policy agenda. But if she is defended, a world of possibilities opens up for all of us.

    Just so.

  11. Thanks, newrouter. So, we can use that ad in the WSJ to line the bottom of the budgie’s cage.

  12. discover the networks makes unmasking the left easy peasy

  13. “$200,000 in 2010.”

    the ad cost $100,000

  14. A tale of two religous motivated killings:

    Stoning in Afghanistan. ?????? ????? ?????????? ??????????
    In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

    Gay activist killed in Uganda.

    Except the latter probably was not be invoked by the evil Christers. It might have been personal. Perhaps the NYT’s slogan should be: “Oh well, never let facts get in the way of a good story.

    And while Obama did not mention any of this in the SOTU, he did not have to. It was implied. Blame Bush/Sarah Palin/Stooge Ryan/Bachmann for it all.

  15. Feets don’t fail me now!

  16. By the way, thanks to both Geoffb and Sarah R for the Glick link.

  17. discover the networks makes unmasking the left easy peasy

    This is a very good source also, KeyWiki.

  18. My prediction for 2012: Palin/Romney. Unity ticket (Tea Party/Old Guard).

    Yes, I know the Old Guard still thinks they can call the shots. I believe they are wrong.

  19. “But if she is defended, a world of possibilities opens up for all of us.”

    How can anyone not understand this?

  20. According to Rasmussen, the voters echo Palin: WTF.

  21. People are starting to see through his bullshit, bh.

  22. People are starting to see through his bullshit, bh.

    They’re getting to be like the survivors of the Endurance waiting it out on Elephant Island, sick and tired of eating penguin blubber. C’mon Shackleton, hurry the fuck up.

  23. Shall we call it an Awakening? I have optimism, for no apparent reason.

  24. I was just reading through the list of Senate Republican committee assignments and came upon the Senate “Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry” committee. Suddenly I’m seized by a wave of depression.

  25. For even more good stuff, check out Sarah Palin’s Facebook post.

    In part:

    “Consider what his “big government greatness” really amounts to. It’s basically a corporatist agenda – it’s the collaboration between big government and the big businesses that have powerful friends in D.C. and can afford to hire big lobbyists. This collaboration works in a manner that distorts and corrupts true free market capitalism. This isn’t just old-fashioned big government liberalism; this is crony capitalism on steroids. In the interests of big business, we’re “investing” in technologies and industries that venture capitalists tell us are non-starters, but which will provide lucrative returns for some corporate interests who have major investments in these areas. In the interests of big government, we’re not reducing the size of our bloated government or cutting spending, we’re told the President will freeze it – at unsustainable, historic levels! In practice, this means that public sector employees (big government’s staunchest defenders) may not lose jobs, but millions of Americans in the private sector face lay offs because the ever-expanding government has squeezed out and crippled our economy under the weight of unsustainable debt.”

  26. more on jfj

    With the belief that Whites continue to oppress the non-whites, it’s no wonder they believe in Government-led social justice. The Government has to do it, because the Caucasian Man either wont or doesn’t realize that he should.

    JFJ has developed seminary programs to prepare rabbinical students for “the challenges of engaging their communities in the critical and profoundly Jewish work of meaningful social justice” — i.e., the redistribution of wealth. These seminary programs are outgrowths of JFJ’s emphasis on “congregation-based community organizing” (CBCO), which is described by Benjamin Ross, JFJ’s Director of Organizing, as “a social change strategy developed by Saul Alinsky.” Aiming to “challenge [religious] congregations to address systemic issues relating to poverty and social injustice,” this type of organizing is spearheaded by four major national CBCO networks: the Alinsky-founded Industrial Areas Foundation, the PICO National Network, the Direct Action Research and Training Center, and the Gamaliel Foundation. JFJ works in partnership with local affiliates of each of these organizations.

  27. Yet, the left, which constantly rails against big business, will wail and gnash teeth over the snowhickbilly daring to point out the obvious problem with big government being in bed with business.

  28. Sarah Palin will never call out McCain because she is both gracious and grateful. Quite aside from my notion that ol’ Maverick’s crankcase is nowhere close to being topped-off these days and any attack on him would be picking on a cripple this is Palin’s St. Joan moment. She can wade into the battle for America’s continued success as a place to make dreams come true or start worrying about who’s on her Enemies List just like the current occupant of the White House.

  29. OT: the precognition around the web seems to be that Mike Pence is going to run for Gov, not Prez.

  30. yes we need more spudnut moments in America.

    WTF is wrong with us we don’t have near enough spudnut moments.

    Run Sarah run! Yes. We needs to get our spudnut on in our little country I think, and we needs to get it on yesterday.

  31. gimme an S!
    gimme a P!
    gimme a U!
    gimme a D!
    gimme an N!
    ok I need another U!
    um. Ok. gimme a T!

    What does that spell???

    AMERICA FUCK YEAH

  32. “WTF is wrong with us we don’t have near enough spudnut moments.”

    on the bright side, DADT was repealed.

    yea us

  33. According to the internet, you can’t procure a spudnut in my state. So, we could use at least one more spudnut moment.

  34. the fda is banning spudbuts because of transfats

  35. The bastards!

  36. Okay… so you got me to google spudnuts.

    But there ain’t no way I’m gonna google spudbuts.

  37. Yeah, that’d definitely result in mental trauma.

  38. TPM the font of all wisdom and truthiness. They who never attempt to do the twisty-twisty on language and are always right and in context.

    Sourceiness determines truthiness.

    Of course if it is wished to make this statement one that places Obama and the Left as the Russians and the economic crisis they have foisted upon us all as the Sputnik which brings about the awareness that there is a great unnoticed problem of public debt to which we must apply ourselves to overcome. Ok then, thank you little nikita.

    What TPM glosses is that the so called “Space Race” was about defense and was a defence, military driven, thing here and in the USSR. It didn’t end with the Moon landings. SDI was also part of it and that it did drive the USSR to economic extinction trying to keep up with what “Sputnik” awakened.

  39. Uh-huh.

    The story rocketed around New York City when streets went uncleared after the Dec. 26 blizzard: Sanitation workers, angry about job reductions, had deliberately staged a work slowdown. It resulted in wisecracks on “Saturday Night Live,” fiery denunciations of unions on cable news and four criminal investigations. And it occurred because one man, Councilman Daniel J. Halloran, Republican of Queens, said five city workers had come to his office during the storm and told him they had been explicitly ordered to take part in a slowdown to embarrass Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. But the more that investigators look into Mr. Halloran’s story, the more mystifying it becomes.

    Mr. Halloran said he had been visited by two supervisors in the Transportation Department and three workers in the Sanitation Department. But the two transportation supervisors did not back up his story in interviews with investigators, according to two people briefed on the inquiries. And Mr. Halloran has steadfastly refused to reveal the names of the sanitation workers. Meanwhile, investigators had hoped that extensive publicity would bring out others with knowledge of the purported plot. That has not happened, according to the people briefed on the investigations, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigations are continuing. This leaves prosecutors with no proof that anything occurred.

    Patiently awaiting retraction.

  40. you can’t procure a spudnut

    All your drain pipes leak then?

  41. This leaves prosecutors with no proof that anything occurred.

    that can be fixed. ask scooter libby.

  42. That’s what those are called, Geoff? I would have guessed thingamajig.

  43. Patient waiting can be fun AJB. Look forward to it. For instance, we here have been patiently waiting for you to pull your head out your ass for years now, and instead are rewarded with your occasional visits to show us we have time yet to go. Most amusing.

  44. Then there’s the day you look down to see you’re wearing one of these on your belt and suddenly realize you’re in dangling peril.

  45. Excuse the dumb question but why are the ends of those wrenches tapered like that?

  46. Gots to line up the bolt holes.

  47. Use ‘em to align holes in two pieces of steel bh. Bull-pin is what we called ‘em.

  48. Thanks, guys.

  49. The story rocketed

    I started to wonder “apropos of what?”, but then I remembered this is, after all, AJB, and he’s just dropping off some trollish nonsense.

  50. Prosecutor finds a horse head in his bed and now he can’t find anything to back up the claim that the union staged a sit out on plow day? And that’s what you’ve got for a Palin thread?

    What a snot-bubble.

  51. Somebody remind me, did AJB ever respond to my having pointed him to a prior post on Jim Sensenbrenner — and issue a retraction for his suggestion that I’d somehow be in support of censorious legislation or restrictions of internet liberty?

    Patiently waiting…

    Also, having union hacks go back on a story after a firestorm of controversy and the resultant death of a baby is hardly proof that nothing happened.

  52. hardly proof

    “So you’re admitting there’s a little bit of proof? Ha!” squeals AJB as he tongues his Transformers tumbler for the last few chunks of Nestles Quick.

  53. …according to the people briefed on the investigations, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigations are continuing.

    FUAJB.

  54. Yeesh, I get here late and someones already explained the whole bull-pin thing….I ain’t got much left in the old repetoire ya know!!

    ajb? even an old worn out mechanic like myself can see the contradiction in your link. Why bother dude? You’d be better off writing your own blog, getting your own 2 digit psychophants ( did I spell that right? ) and then have THEM laugh at you.

    Palin? I love her to death, but am on the ‘meh’ side of her Presidential aspirations ( IF she has any ) for the sole reason that the press would tear her to pieces. NO chance.

  55. What does that spell???

    Bobby Spudnut, D, Boston Bruins, 66-76

  56. “Indeed. Even Michael Savage is starting to warm up to Palin and her unflinching willingness to call a spade a spade. So to speak. And not there’s anything wrong with that.”

    Too dull to be a spade, and not shovel ready. We gotta figure out what kinda tool Obama is.

  57. By not not-running and having no fear of taking the rhetorical battle right at the Left she remains the irresistible bait in a monkey trap for them. They must quit her, drop her, but they cannot. That is one metaphor. Another would have her as a conservative reconnaissance-in-force.

  58. A Freedom Outlaw is (loosely) somebody who cares so much about freedom that he or she will go after it regardless of any laws or regulations blocking the way. Will go after it personally. Not petition for it. Not write letters for it. Not vote for it. But GO for it. …
    Does a Freedom Outlaw really have to be a criminal? Well … yes and no. If the thought of being a criminal offends you, I can only say, “Get over it.” As Kent McManigal states so well, every, single one of us is already a criminal. We violate obscure laws from the time we open our eyes in the morning till the moment we fall exhausted into bed. Three Felonies a Day according to Harvey Silverglate. And the more innocent we are in our hearts when we commit those “crimes,” the riper we are for the plucking by corrupt prosecutors and regulators.

    Heck, we probably violate laws, federal or state, even as we snooze. Maybe our PJs flout fireproofing regulations. Perhaps our snoring is regulated somewhere as noise pollution. Maybe our dreams are filled with acts of subversion.

    But the simple fact is that we are already criminals, each and every one of us, even if we do our utmost to be “law-abiding citizens.”

    There are simply too many laws to abide.

    So we might as well embrace and enjoy what we are….

  59. Sarah Palin, bull-pin with lipstick.

  60. And with two years to go, I question the credentials of anyone who attempts to diminish her credibility.

  61. She can take a punch, that we know for certain. And she doesn’t back down or back off.

  62. One wonders if the JFJ would rise as one to smote any of the sundry leftie trangressions against Jewish memory. I think the Congressional Progressive Caucus would yield profitable hunting. Don’t get me wrong–they love the reflexive Jewish votes and donations, but the Jewish faith and Israel, well, not so much.

    Glenn Beck is an overwrought fool much of the time but he has his moments where he gets it right. Seeing Obama for his true colors and never shutting up about it 24-7 was probably the right thing to do.

    Here about now is when we denounce Jeff for his inauthentic Jewish identity because he didn’t endorse the letter. So Jeff, please consider yourself denounced. You’ll be an Episcopal soon enough.

    On a different note, that Jimmer Fredette is some sort of basketball player. Pistol Pete for a new day. Lordy Lord.

  63. Fruit:

    Because the rise of negro protest in the USA will bring definite difficulties to the ruling classes of the USA and will distract the attention of the Nixon administration from pursuing an active foreign policy, we would consider it feasible to implement a number of measures to support this movement and to assist its growth.

    Therefore it is recommended to utilize the possibilities of the KGB in African countries to inspire political and public figures, youth, trade union and nationalist organizations to issue petitions, requests and statements to the UN, U.S. embassies in their countries and the U.S. government in defense of the rights of American negroes. To publish articles and letters accusing the U.S. government of genocide in the press of various African countries. Employing the possibilities of the KGB in New York and Washington, to influence the “Black Panthers” to address appeals to the UN and other international bodies for assistance in bringing the U.S. government’s policy of genocide toward American negroes to an end.

  64. happily for me,
    i’m uncredentialed,
    so unquestion away.

  65. sdferr:

    These documents, I noted, were available to anyone who wanted to consult them. But nobody did. Publishers were indifferent. Only a fraction of the documents had been translated into English. This was, I argued, a symptom of the world’s dangerous indifference to the enormity of Communist crimes.

    No, not “indifference”, a but a genuine desire for them to remain buried, the uncomfortable truths about the lies our leftist, Soviet-boot-licking Media were telling us all those years.

  66. Glenn Beck is an overwrought fool much of the time but he has his moments where he gets it right.

    well you do 4 hours a day people will listen if it is not all doom/gloom and make fun of the situation.

  67. Use ‘em to align holes in two pieces of steel bh. Bull-pin is what we called ‘em.

    I though they were silver because you just never know when you’re going to need to stake a vampire. Or a moocher.

  68. You’d think that it would be utterly obvious that someone as obsessed with grammar as Loughner could not possibly be a Palin disciple. God bless her, but she’s got some pretty farked up syntax at times.

  69. If you thought Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s budget slashing spree was over, you have another thing coming.

    Paul said Thursday that he will introduce another bill “in the next two or three weeks” that would address the Social Security entitlement program by raising the age of eligibility for younger workers and use “means testing” to determine if a citizen with high income is eligible to receive benefits.

    “We are going to propose separate legislation sometime in the next two to three weeks that will gradually raise the age,” Paul said. “The debt commission waits until the year 2050 to begin raising the age. We’re going to do it much quicker, although we have promised near retirees not to do it to them so we are going to try and have a little bit of delay, but then we’re going to try raising the age.”

  70. “Because like it or not, Palin is one of the most important voices in conservatism today.”

    It helps when you already know what your detractors and enemies are going to say about you no matter what you say or do, and then decide that you don’t give a fig about their opinions.* ‘Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?’

    Correct, Mrs. Palin. It was a speech chock-full of WTF goodness. Keep hittin’ them, Mrs. Palin. Hit them hard, and hit them again.

    *As in ‘Our opinion of you would go up if you would just agree that you are vile and then go into a corner and kill yourself. Because you are worse than Hitler. Just admit that and die, you chillbilly cumslut.’

    Or something like that.

  71. new term: islamcommie?

  72. “This leaves prosecutors with no proof that anything occurred.”

    And thus there is such a thing as a grand jury investigation. I never realized that ‘AJB’ was the short handle for ‘idiot’, but I do today.

  73. “Egypt .”

    i got to do that in jimmy carter’s america ’78-’80. leisure suits yes.

  74. History is a ribbon, always unfurling; history is a journey. And as we continue our journey, we think of those who traveled before us. We stand together again at the steps of this symbol of our democracy—or we would have been standing at the steps if it hadn’t gotten so cold. Now we are standing inside this symbol of our democracy. Now we hear again the echoes of our past: a general falls to his knees in the hard snow of Valley Forge; a lonely President paces the darkened halls, and ponders his struggle to preserve the Union; the men of the Alamo call out encouragement to each other; a settler pushes west and sings a song, and the song echoes out forever and fills the unknowing air. 40
    It is the American sound. It is hopeful, big-hearted, idealistic, daring, decent, and fair. That’s our heritage; that is our song. We sing it still. For all our problems, our differences, we are together as of old, as we raise our voices to the God who is the Author of this most tender music. And may He continue to hold us close as we fill the world with our sound—sound in unity, affection, and love—one people under God, dedicated to the dream of freedom that He has placed in the human heart, called upon now to pass that dream on to a waiting and hopeful world. 41
    God bless you and may God bless America.

  75. Because like it or not, Palin is one of the most important voices in conservatism today.

    I wonder if we can impose on her to “go first” on a 10 year budget plan, with discretionary cuts, entitlement reform, and smart security spending cuts. As Obama and Schumer have made clear, to the Left those important issues are for demagoguing purposes only. The establishment Republicans are hiding behind Ryan, and they have muzzled him. None of the other potential candidates seem to have the requisite stones to step up and say what need to be said.

  76. #74: Egypt.

    yes.

    ‘Where have you gone Dick Cheney
    Our nation turns lonely eyes to thee
    Oo, Oo, Eeee.’

    Yep. When the going gets scary you want a real bad-ass riding next to you. Seriously – Barack Obama (Mr. Unicorn) or George Bush (Smoke ‘em out); Joe Biden (Neil Kinnock has an injunction on any further joe biden quotes) or Dick Cheney (umpteen heart attacks and they still fear me!).

    The metrosexual revolution – and even the NYT Style section has no idea what to do.

  77. no cut the gov’t first. leave ss and medicare as the last thing. the islamocommies have nowhere to hide.

  78. #77: The problem with a ten year budget plan is that no Congress goes for more than two years. The House has two year terms, and any spending bills have to originate in the House.*

    *Yes, yes. The Senate can propose one and send it to the House, whcih can either agree and send it back to the Senate or change it, and then back to the Senate – but either way the House gets to be the one first in line on when the bill reaches the President.

  79. Egypt.

    I find it telling that Baracky can wag his finger at Mubarak, but can’t find his way to smack Ahmadinejad around while he’s stealing an election.

  80. psychophants ( did I spell that right? )

    Sycophants, but a spelling closer to “psychopants” is probably way more appropriate when it comes to the readership AJB would attract so I think you just coined an awesome neologism there.

    Speaking of neologisms, Palin’s syntax may be farked but she speaks the language in a lovely natural way that isn’t as greasy on the ears as Obama’s polished manner, so I much prefer to listen to her. People who complain about her incomprehensibility are also people who claim that Judith Butler writes moving, tear-wrenching prose.

    I leave people to draw their own conclusions from that. (Meanwhile I will attempt to claw out my own eyes at the thought of Judith Butler’s writing. gag.)

  81. “fig-revealers” on a literal take, syco-phants, but the opposite of the Cervantean “a fig under my cloak for the king” types.

  82. I sorta feel like I should get bonus points for not even knowing who Judith Butler is/was.

  83. Judith Butler’s prose is absolutely turgid. And intentionally so, I might add.

    I sometimes think she’d rather nobody bothered to figure out what she is saying, because at base it’s pedestrian and often silly.

  84. From the images stored at Bing, she seems to be a lady what looks like a man bh. Outside a that, dunno.

  85. I’m guessing she wrote those Twilight books.

  86. Okay, I checked. Yeah, I’m unlikely to dive into any of that.

    Tangentially, I actually dig some Jeanette Winterson. Well, I liked Written on the Body anyways. She also wrote a short story about gypsies who used sexual blackmail to force a suburban man into buying a pony that I really enjoyed.

    Culture, I gots me a little.

  87. From the images stored at Bing, she seems to be a lady what looks like a man bh. Outside a that, dunno.

    This has me recalling The Nation’s description of Frances Fox Piven:

    she’s actually a noted beauty

    Oh, yeah. This is HAWT!

  88. This is the best one I saw but really beauty is more than the outside and in that respect I find all progressives repulsive.

  89. Sarah Shahi is more betterer. Or arguendo, that Brooklyn Decker one.

  90. I understand Congress only runs 2 years at a time, Mikey NTH. I am not proposing legislation, just an overall outline of what we should be doing for 10 years. From Rep. Ryan’s Roadmap 2.0

    A Roadmap for America’s Future overlays its spending and revenue assumptions onto this fiscal scenario to estimate primary spending, interest, deficits or surpluses, and debt held by the public over the next 75 years

    I don’t think she needs to go that far out, just the rest of Teh Won’s term and her two terms ;-)

  91. yea wiki whatever:

    “Next, they bring false witnesses, who accuse him of blaspheming against God, Moses, the Law, and the Tabernacle. Aided by an angel, Stephen refutes every point, a refutation recounted in some detail. Finally, they try torture; still, Stephen attempts to convert them by inciting shame and fear in them, and by showing their love for him—he prays for his opponents as he is being stoned.”

  93. Details for the Rand Paul $500 Billion cuts.

  94. New Router, I was driving the other day and in a crummy mood and listening to the Dead channel on Sirius XM and a pretty sweet Terrapin came on…..changed my mood pretty quickly.

    Just saying.

  95. More detailed PDF file.

  96. Judith Butler’s prose is absolutely turgid. And intentionally so, I might add.

    Because speaking like a normal human being interested in discourse with other normal human beings means you have lost given up the ability to play silly buggers with the narrative, because it’s all some kind of paternalist jiggery-pokery that we manipulate to our own ends. And not, you know, the fundamental method for the transmission of ideas.

    Internet gun. I need an internet gun.

  97. egypt?

    yes let’s relive the late ’70’s

    (sarah help us)

    The Fez – Steely Dan

  98. And speaking of bring people together, Time has Obama and Reagan on the cover. This is what Obama “wrote” about Reagan in “his” book:

    “When classmates in college asked me just what it was that a community organizer did, I couldn’t answer them directly,” Obama wrote. “Instead, I’d pronounce on the need for change. Change in the White House, where Reagan and his minions were carrying on their dirty deeds…”

    RichatUf posted from the comments on

    http://justoneminute.typepad.com/main/2011/01/if-i-could-bring-two-people-together.html#comments

    It was just too good a catch to not mention (and counter the new narrative).

    The new Obama loves Reagan meme of the week. Another example of “just how stupid do they think we are?”

  99. From the above and to highlight one more thing.

    “When classmates in college asked me just what it was that a community organizer did, I couldn’t answer them directly,” Obama wrote. “Instead, I’d pronounce on the need for change.”

    All talk, no action, no answers. Ayup. Same as it ever was. And I’ll just note the word he used – pronounce. Bet he was doing his Mussolini pose, too.
