Time For Obama to Let Loose His “Inner Negro”!

Now I know Presidnet Obama was raised by white folks…

But Dayam!

If He "Ain't got no" Thug - He needs to find some!

Time for the boy to start channeling some of that Inner Negro, and it’s –

Time for Obama to go ‘gangsta’ on GOP

Civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer made famous the phrase, “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.”

For me, I’m sick and tired of Democrats having power and being unwilling to use it. I’ve always respected Republicans when they had power because they were willing to use it and maybe apologize later.

Today, President Obama walked into the White House briefing room and took some questions, and one of them revolved around recess appointments.

He has watched Republicans block many of his appointments, and now he says he made it clear to them that he will “consider” making some when the U.S. Senate goes into recess.

“One senator, as you all are aware, had put a hold on every single nominee that we had put forward due to a dispute over a couple of earmarks in his state,” President Obama said.

“In our meeting, I asked the congressional leadership to put a stop to these holds in which nominees for critical jobs are denied a vote for months. Surely we can set aside partisanship and do what’s traditionally been done to confirm these nominations.

If the Senate does not act — and I made this very clear — if the Senate does not act to confirm these nominees, I will consider making several recess appointments during the upcoming recess, because we can’t afford to allow politics to stand in the way of a well-functioning government.”

This is where the president needs to show his toughness and just do it. Forget the threats. The actions of Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Alabama, and other Republican obstructionists will continue if President Obama allows them to run roughshod over him. When you’re the top dog, you do what you have to do to govern. Allowing Republican senators to continue to deny your appointments is nonsense.

If all of them choose to support a filibuster, then you take it to the American people and show the obstructionists for what they are. You get your grass-roots movement fired up to stand up and do something. The political right used its base to go after Democrats who blocked appointments to the federal bench and other positions. So why not be just as aggressive?

If there are members of your own party who stand in the way, such as Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Nebraska, then you also blast them and make them pay for acting so foolishly.

This president got rolled by the Senate over health care. His team made some boneheaded mistakes, and now they are paying for them. Continuing to play footsie with opponents will only get him into more trouble. He should set a deadline to have his folks confirmed. If not, appoint them all during the recess and go on about your business.

Obama’s critics keep blasting him for Chicago-style politics. So, fine. Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let ’em know that if they aren’t with you, they are against you, and will pay the price

Thank You, Roland Martin!

If It Quacks Like a Duck… Conservatism and Whining About Being Identified as Racist

This is one of two videos by conservative talk jock Alex Jones. Now, conservatives have dominated the radio air waves since shortly after Raygun killed the Fairness Doctrine, and the FCC began loosening rules on station ownership allowing radio stations to be consolidated as Right Wing propaganda outlets under a few owners. The ability to propagandize their talking points 24 x 7 over the airwaves without criticism, or offering up opposing viewpoints has been a foundation of the success of the Republican Party and the spread of conservatism.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

That is beginning to change. And the fear is palpable among conservative commentators who have ramped up vitriolic, and often racist commentary in an attempt to rally the base listenership. This particular conservative, tries and make the rather weak point, that anyone calling conservative commentary “racist”, even when it is racist – is violating the First Amendment Rights and is dragging the country into a totalitarian state.

Tea Baggers… Meet The Union

Republicans are keeping up with their campaign to disrupt and harass Democrat legislators attempting to meet with their constituents in Town Hall Meetings. Members of the SEIU Union were present to represent their interests in supporting Health Care Reform. The result was a clash –

There is no video evidence of who may have thrown the first punch, but at least one hired Tea Bagger is complaining of a beat down.

Kenneth Gladney, 38, a self identified black Republican from St. Louis who¬† said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with “Don’t tread on me” printed on them. He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room on Thursday night at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was awaiting treatment for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face.

“It just seems there’s no freedom of speech without being attacked,” Gladney said. On Friday, he said he had been hired by the Tea Party folks to hand out the flags and added: “I was attacked for something I believe in.”

It would appear Mr. Gladney decided to prostitute his race by providing some otherwise missing “color” to the Tea Bagger mini-riot, for money. It now is evident that the Tea Baggers, stung by criticisms of racism, are hiring local maladjusted black folks to provide some black faces in their audiences for cover. In view that their modus operendi is to violently disrupt and prevent American Citizens from meeting peacefully and discussing issues with their representatives… Read the rest of this entry »

Rethuglanism Returns to it’s Roots

Quickly running out of options on the right, after some bad choices in opposing Sotomayor, and letting the racists represent the Party, the right has ripped another page from the Hitler playbook…

Rethuggery.

Not since the infamous “Brook Brothers Riot” in the 2000 Presidential Election in Florida to force a stop of the recount has the Party sunk so publicly to thuggery. These tactics are very similar to those of Hitler’s Brown Shirts during his rise to power who disrupted, sometimes with bats and pipes rival Party meetings…

So… Since the likely result of this sort of political hooliganism is a like response from folks opposing the right…

Do Rethuglys really want America to descend into third-world country political hooliganism?
