Obama accomplishes nothing, wins Nobel Prize

As one prominent conservative talk radio giant put it today, President Obama has now become the first post-accomplishment president meaning he will be given accolades and awards while having achieved nothing of substance. Apparently we no longer reward achievement, we now award wishful thinking with no proven results whatsoever. I can’t even believe I got the opportunity to write the headline for this story, it is a bad Saturday Night Live sketch illustrating Obama’s total lack of experience, achievement and reality.

The UK Times Online takes it further:

The award of this year’s Nobel peace prize to President Obama will be met with widespread incredulity, consternation in many capitals and probably deep embarrassment by the President himself.

Rarely has an award had such an obvious political and partisan intent. It was clearly seen by the Norwegian Nobel committee as a way of expressing European gratitude for an end to the Bush Administration, approval for the election of America’s first black president and hope that Washington will honour its promise to re-engage with the world.

Instead, the prize risks looking preposterous in its claims, patronising in its intentions and demeaning in its attempt to build up a man who has barely begun his period in office, let alone achieved any tangible outcome for peace.

The pretext for the prize was Mr Obama’s decision to “strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples”. Many people will point out that, while the President has indeed promised to “reset” relations with Russia and offer a fresh start to relations with the Muslim world, there is little so far to show for his fine words.

President Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize is the equivalent of me saying that one day I would like to star in a movie and then being awarded an Oscar for my stated desire, not the actual results.

The Nobel Peace Prize has been a laughing joke to me personally for years now, I’m glad the world can now share in the hilarity. It’s funny that Obama has accepted the award basically as a “call to action” since he has no accomplishments, neither past nor present which deserve any recognition.

Not surprisingly, the general public rather skeptical of the politically motivated decision:

Not a single person knows why he was awarded the Nobel Prize, not even Obama himself. There is nothing to point to which comes remotely close to a reason why he should ever have been nominated let alone won the award. Either way, the last nail in the laughing stock coffin has been put in for the Nobel Prize committee.

I’ll let Rush take it from here since no one can speak it better.

    Vatican City, Oct 9, 2009 / 12:59 pm (CNA).- The Vatican offered its appreciation today for President Barack Obama’s work for peace on the international level, following the announcement that the president the winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

    Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi told L’Osservatore Romano that President Obama’s reception of the award “is greeted with appreciation by the Vatican” due to his efforts “to promote peace in the international arena, particularly in the recent effort in favor of the nuclear disarmament.”

    Fr. Lombardi also said that he hopes that the honor “may generate the expected results for the future of humanity.”

    Reacting to the award, President Obama stated that it isn’t necessarily “a recognition of my own accomplishments,” but rather a “call for all nations to confront the common challenges of the 21st century.”

    Fox News reported that the award committee chose the President due to his work to reduce nuclear weapons, his commitment to easing tensions with the Middle East and his dedication to cooperation.

    The chairman of the Norwegian committee charged with choosing the peace prize recipient, Thorbjoern Jagland, said that although the president’s initiatives have yet to bear fruit, “Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future.”

    In his statement today, the president also said he does not feel that he deserves “to be in the company of so many transformative figures that have been honored by this prize.”

    Previous winners of the award include Mother Teresa, Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Theodore Roosevelt, Elie Wiesel and Jimmy Carter.

    Obama: I do not deserve Nobel prize

    The Nobel committee said Obama had reached out to the world in a bid to end nuclear arms stocks [EPA]

    Barack Obama, the US president, has said he is “surprised and deeply humbled” after being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009, less than a year after taking office.

    Speaking in Washington, Obama said he did “not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who have been honoured by this prize”.

    The Nobel Committee in Oslo, the Norwegian capital, said that the award recognised Obama’s attempts to foster international peace and create a world without nuclear weapons.

    Obama will give his $1.4m reward for winning the Nobel Peace Prize to charity, the AFP news agency reported a US official as saying.

    No decision has yet been taken on exactly which organisations will benefit, the official said.

    ‘Mutual respect’

    South Africa’s Archbishop Desmond Tutu, awarded the prize himself in 1984, hailed the award as “a magnificent endorsement for the first African-American president in history”.

    Doubts over Obama Nobel win

    But world reaction to the decision has been mixed, with the Taliban in Afghanistan saying it was absurd to give the prize to Obama when he had ordered 21,000 extra troops to Afghanistan this year.

    In his speech from the White House, Obama said: “Let me be clear, I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but rather as an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations.

    “We cannot tolerate a world in which nuclear weapons spread to more nations and in which the terror of a nuclear holocaust endangers more people.

    “We must pursue a new beginning among people of different faiths and races and religions, one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect.”

    The president said he would accept the award as a “call to action” for all nations to confront the common challenges of the 21st century.

    “And we must all do our part to resolve those conflicts that have caused so much pain and hardship over so many years,” he said.

    Taliban criticism

    Nobel nominees

    US President Obama was one of more than 200 individuals nominated for the 2009 Nobel peace prize. The decision to award Obama the prize was a surprise to those who thought that one of these four candidates would win:

    Morgan Tsvangirai – the prime minister in Zimbabwe’s power-sharing government. As opposition leader, he was imprisoned and severely beaten. But he struck a power-sharing deal with his rival, President Robert Mugabe

    Piedad Cordoba – a politician and
    hostage negotiator in Colombia, she mediated between the government and the rebel group FARC, and was herself
    kidnapped in 1998

    Hu Jia – currently in jail in China, on charges of subverting state power. After months of house arrest, he was sentenced just before the Beijing Olympic Games for his constant criticism of human rights abuses

    Sima Samar – an advocate of women’s rights in male-dominated Afghanistan, she was a senior minister in President Hamid Karzai’s first government and is now head of the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission
    The Taliban condemned the decision saying that Obama has “not taken a single step towards peace in Afghanistan”.

    However, Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, congratulated Obama, calling the announcement “appropriate”.

    An aide to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president, said the award should prompt Obama to begin to end injustice in the world.

    “We hope that this gives him the incentive to walk in the path of bringing justice to the world order,” Ali Akbar Javanfekr, Ahmadinejad’s media aide, said.

    “We are not upset and we hope that by receiving this prize he will start taking practical steps to remove injustice in the world.

    Yukio Hatoyama, the Japanese president, and Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, both said the prize should encourage everyone to help Obama rid the world of nuclear weapons.

    “I think the peace prize was given with such a hope,” Hatoyama told reporters on a visit to Beijing.

    Merkel said Obama had shifted the tone towards dialogue in a very short time.

    “There is still much left to do, but a window of possibility has been opened,” she said in Leipzig.

  • Bill Hedges

    To give a prestige’s award to a person who has no record of peace, actually , no record of consequence. To give on a hope and a prayer to appear from thin air, devalues the award itself.

    If we ignore proven lies here by obama, we still have only good intention at best. And path has many good intentions cluttering the curb.

    Is Rush Right…

    “Limbaugh: ‘Greater embarrassment’ than losing Olympics”

    By JONATHAN MARTIN | 10/9/09 9:24 PM EDT

    “This fully exposes the illusion that is Barack Obama,”

    Limbaugh told POLITICO in an e-mail. “And with this ‘award’ the elites of the world are urging Obama, THE MAN OF PEACE, to not do the surge in Afghanistan, not take action against Iran and its nuclear program and to basically continue his intentions to emasculate the United States.”

    Limbaugh continued: “They love a weakened, neutered U.S, and this is their way of promoting that concept. I think God has a great sense of humor, too.”

    “Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele echoed the view: “The real question Americans are asking is, ‘What has President Obama actually accomplished?’ It is unfortunate that the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights. One thing is certain — President Obama won’t be receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action.”

    “And conservative strategist Craig Shirley said on POLITICO’s The Arena: “Utterly ridiculous. The credibility of the Nobel Peace Prize has been dwindling downward for years and now it has hit rock bottom.. . . Reagan won the Cold War, freed millions, yet was never awarded the Nobel.”

    “But I think the appropriate response is when anybody wins a Nobel Prize, that is a very noteworthy development and designation and I think the appropriate response is to say ‘Congratulations,'” said the Minnesota governor.

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1009/28124.html

    Perhaps ignore the hyporacy of award is best. One day out of 4 years won’t hurt. Massive liberalism material stupidity will certainly be over-flowing when Harry and Nancy join the House and Senate version of Health Care bill.

    Destruction comes with that, Value added Tax, and carbon energy tax. Give the guy a day break. He won’t sleep well. His day is coming. He knows it, that why the wait for health care reform to 2013. .. When high cost to middle class become apparent, OH BOY…

    Well, if Ahmadinejad is happy, I have to be ??? What better vote of confidence can there be. Ahmadinejad and obama should be basketball buddies. Maybe they can kill young women on streets together. Watch out New York !!!Ahmadinejad is expert in “bringing justice to the world order”.

  • Bill Hedges

    You know, that shows me the difference between Bush and obama. Silly Bush unwisely would have criticized Ahmadinejad for killing protesters. Might have mentioned human rights.

    Wisely obama stays silent (as he did with China), gaining the respect of Ahmadinejad by not getting unreasonable about the murders. Thus proving his “call to action” for all nations to confront the common challenges of the 21st century.”

    “In the Middle East, Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, was more sceptical.

    “Ismail Haniyeh, Hamas prime minister in Gaza, said: “Unless real and deep-rooted change is made in American policy towards recognising the rights of the Palestinian people, I would think such a prize would be useless.”

    ‘A joke’

    My proof in calling you dunce is there for all who audit these articles without commenting to see. Your denial holds no water.

    Your cursing and insults is numerous in this article. My use of dunce is given with reason for saying it. And proving it.

    I’ve never seen anybody here wish physical harm to obama. As far as that goes, neither to you Kenny.

    Wishing for my death is outrageous. As it would be if I bought in your daughter in my comments, which is inappropriate and would not do. A man would retract his statement. Which I have never seen you do.

  • Bill Hedges

    Ken

    Said…

    “Levi Johnston To Pose For Playgirl”

    Ok. I do have nude pics of Obama’s mother. It is not that hard to find on internet…

  • Bill Hedges

    Sometimes the advertising for a movie is a hype. Seeing the show just doesn’t live up to expectation.

    Am example of this is “Bill O’Reilly’s Bizarre Theory On Ignorant Female Conservatives”

    Watching and listening to clip you can see little to match title of link. On most Fox news programs they do have guess to discuss both sides. I found author of this piece did a great deal of show business augmentation. If I was a liberal I would never use this. It takes away from person’s creditability. If this case, Kenny’s credibility.

    Here is all that the author wrote below video clip…

    “Conservatives who have no concern about things such as facts and logical arguments have created the myth (believed only by themselves) that ignorant female conservative politicians such as Michelle Brachmann and Sarah Palin are disliked by the left because they are female as opposed to because of their ignorance. Bill O’Reilly raised this in an interview with Michelle Bachmann (video above). Transcript follows (hat tip to Think Progress):

    “O’REILLY: Do you think — and this is an off-the-wall question. And I’m telling the audience that it’s just something that’s occurred to me. Both you and Sarah Palin are good-looking women. I mean, you’re attractive, young — relatively young — women who other women can identify with. You’re a mom, a wife. You had a private-sector job.”

    “I think that’s it. I think that the success of Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann drive the far left crazy because you don’t fit — they don’t like what you believe in, but you can attract others to listen to you. I think that’s what’s going on.

    No, it is not because of them being attractive or women. I’ve already discussed the problems with Sarah Palin in multiple previous posts. The Democratic Party has released a list of many of Bachmann’s more absurd statements along with fact checking from independent sources. Reading through the linked site should explain why the left thinks so little of her.”

    I don’t see the match up of tittle of piece and his written words to the video clip.

    Kenny gave no insight in his comment. Just posted a derogatory sounding link. A all hot air talk with no substance article…

    Kenny then just picks Levi Johnston To Pose For Playgirl
    Ghost Writers and Conservative Gullibility
    John McCain Wants To Reform The Republican Party
    Sarah Palin’s Lack of Understanding of Health Care

    Out of the hat from link. With no quotes. The meaning of Levi Johnston cashing in by posing for Playgirl escapes me. I suppose trying to embarrass Sarah Palin.

    Also Sarah does not understand the 5 versions of health bills floating out there is ridicules.

    Wilson Spoke out in Congressional speech. Obama denied. Yet proved Wilson was correct. Also Wilson was not even close to first to speak out against a President. As proven on this site.

    The sad truth is liberals have proven little. Exaggerations and unfounded accusations.

    Kenny’s flustered wish for my death, shows the pitiful condition of one liberal on this site. Time after time his comments are meet with differing evidence. He does not want me commenting on his comments. Even though this is discussion site.

    The polls for obama and Democrats shows their falling popularity.

    Even Senate leader Harry Reid re-election next year is in serious doubt.

    Health care bill is not popular in the polls.

  • Bill Hedges

    One clear point needs to be said. “Bill O’Reilly’s Bizarre Theory On Ignorant Female Conservatives”. Bill said nothing remotely close to this. Nothing.

    That’s the author’s view attributed to Bill…

  • JD

    I don’t get why anyone really cares? It seems as though if you don’t agree with the recipients of a Nobel prize then it doesn’t matter because the Nobel prize is not given based on your or my vote.

    It is like complaining because an NFL team won a game because of a Ref’s decision…. The team that lost will always complain that it was a bad call.

    Great news coverage, people.

  • Bill Hedges

    The prize use to be given for recognition to those who accomplished great deeds.

    In recent times the organization has become more political.

    Basically giving peace award for obama’s political agenda.

    Nate said it best in first paragraph:

    “As one prominent conservative talk radio giant put it today, President Obama has now become the first post-accomplishment president meaning he will be given accolades and awards while having achieved nothing of substance. Apparently we no longer reward achievement, we now award wishful thinking with no proven results whatsoever. I can’t even believe I got the opportunity to write the headline for this story, it is a bad Saturday Night Live sketch illustrating Obama’s total lack of experience, achievement and reality.”

    I two could not believe liberal SNL did the sketch. I admire their doing so. This in itself makes my case.

    Using a similar comparison observed on Fox news:

    I show promise in my writing here on this site. I have possibility of becoming another Ernest Miller Hemingway
    . So Noble committee is giving me Nobel Peace Prize for Literature…

    JD example:

    “It is like complaining because an NFL team won a game because of a Ref’s decision….The team that lost will always complain that it was a bad call.”

    Not a bad example if it was relevant. If game was close so that a few bad calls could change the outcome of the game, then JD would be correct.

    In case of Obama, even he is surprised. There is no solid reason for him receiving award. So JD example does not apply. Was not even close.

    When nominated he had been president like 13 days. Committee seemed to have to had searched hard after nomination for something to use for an excuse to give him award. Just a hope and a prayer was reason for giving award.

    I understand there were those who performed accomplishments that placed them in contentions, losing to obama for a pipe dream many have had, denies those who truly accomplished good.

    Obama, then to now, has done nothing to deserve the award. Once, until recent times, $1.4 million payment was too little reward. For obama, $2.00 is over payment.

  • JD

    Bill, it is no surprise that you didn’t understand my example but the point is that the deciding call had nothing to do with you or I.

    So whether you agree or disagree doesn’t matter, he is getting the Peace prize.

    I just think it is retarded how much people are going on about it.

  • Bill Hedges

    “Bill, it is no surprise that you didn’t understand my example but the point is that the deciding call had nothing to do with you or I.”

    I gave reason why example was not relevant. Instead of disproving my reasoning, you just say “you didn’t understand my example.” I did understand your example. Is not a difficult one to grasp. The game was so far from being close, no amount of ref mistakes would change outcome. 5 year old children playing finest NFL players would be the game.

    “So whether you agree or disagree doesn’t matter, he is getting the Peace prize.”

    So true. I have not said he should give it back either. I hope you attend when I receive my Oscar.

    “I just think it is retarded how much people are going on about it.”

    Using ‘retarded’ seems insensitive. Not showing empathy in use of term for those with !!! Ignoring that word, many people have done a lot of good for the sake of helping mankind. To cheapen their achievements does offend me.

    Maybe that was SNL live point. I like to think so.

  • Bill Hedges
  • JD,

    Some people live to trash things man. Some get paid to do it, some do it because they have nothing better to do. No matter the one it is, know that there will always be people to do such a thing. Controversy is entertainment for the masses of drones. Being happy for someone and/or being supportive is only relevant if it is in opposition of the normal target to be trashed. Very simple.

    As far as “Personally, I would like this site to follow some of the elections going on around the US. I am an election Junkie.”

    Nothing is stopping you from bring it up.

  • Bill,

    Arguing with you is a waste of time. If I proved everything you ever said in life to be wrong, it would serve no purpose. Talk about something interesting and I’ll talk about it with you. The things you bring up are very far from interesting, so I don’t bother. Nothing you say hits home, doesn’t appear to have any affect on my life, so I don’t even read it past the first couple of lines. When you bring up something that I can possibly care about, I will discuss it with you. Until then, do your thing Billy, without me.

  • Bill Hedges

    Nothing would give your ego more pleaure than to win one point against me.

    My recent mistake, proves my point.

    You wanting me dead shows your mind set. You can’t take the gutter out of a ex-drug dealer…beating up woman, jail, foul language…

    If you act like a man, bring up your topic of interest, I would discuss as adult. Problem is when you end up on short in of stick, you revert back to your old ways. I know how that too.

    I bring up all sorts of topics. None seems to be your thing. Strange ???

  • My ego is not big, you only think that it is because of the way I talk to you, and you only, on this earth. Just think of how many people in this world there are, why do you think that out of all of them, you are the only one who gets the treatment from me that you do. Do you think it’s because you are superior to them? Not likely.

    I have no clue as to what mistake you are referring to.

    I don’t care whether you live or die, honestly. That was just my way of showing how annoying you can be, and it’s not from winning or losing arguments because I choose not to argue with you on the better of who is better, democrat/republican liberal/conservative. We obviously share different views which are not going to change so why would either of us attempt to sway the other on the basis of our views on life? That is something that you can not win or lose on, which has been my point for a long time. I don’t need a link to back up my views on life. They are my views.

    So label me and you give me the responsibility to defending our President and his political affiliates when I may or may not share their views on ALL matters. That is silly and you know that it is, which is why I am so dumbfounded by your relentless attempts to bind myself and those people by some sort of strict code amongst people. Whenever I speak you throw the word liberal at me in a viscous manner and you know that you do. If my beliefs earn me such a label, then so be it, but when I talk to or about you I do not say, you see those conservatives blah blah blah. I take each man and woman as being an individual, not as a “group.” You know that this is also a poor choice on your part.

    Things that interest me:

    1. Our country looking out for it’s citizens.

    No I don’t mean welfare and such. If we see our fellow man struggling with life, I personally feel it is an obligations for those around to lend a helping hand. Perhaps that is simply a weak liberal beliefs, but it is one shared by Jesus Christ, as stated by the parable of the Good Samaritan. I have stated this before. Hey if Jesus was a liberal, than I suppose it’s not so bad. The good Samaritan saw a man at roadside who had been passed by his own people, the Samaritan cleaned the mans wounds and paid that mans debt. I know that paying someones debt is illogical in today’s world. There are ways of lending a helping hand to others though, it does not have to be done with the giving of money, but possible a free service, which undoubtedly will cost some sort of money.

    E.I. Free medical clinic. Free legal aid. Temporary assistance with food and lodging. Assistance for the unemployed to find a new job. Again, if these ideas are too liberal and insane, I apologize, it’s just my personal views.

    I feel that medical and legal personnel can initiate these things on their own, but the government has a nifty way of setting up help lines which can help guide people in need to these services. My state has the phone number 211 set up to do just that. I believe that food stamps and homeless shelters are lacking a bit in my area. Some people lose a job and have difficulty finding another one and also are denied food stamps or public housing even for a temporary basis and go homeless. I believe this is a bad thing. Not solely on the governments part but also on its citizens in general or do not stick together and help family members.

    2. As stated above, unemployment.

    I hear so many people state that they have the perfect idea on how to attack this problem yet it does not get done. My county has a program called Worknet Pinellas that assists people in finding work, it is great. I’m not sure if there are similar things in all county’s, if so we’d likely not have such a high unemployment rate. If all county’s do have this and unemployment is high, then it is either because many do not want to work, or their are not jobs locally. Then you could move yourself and family somewhere else and look for work. If this is not reasonable then that family needs help relocating and we as a nation should see to it that we assist that family with relocating to where there is work. Perhaps again, this is too liberal of an idea. I suppose the best alternative is to blame Obama and let that family starve and be homeless.

    3. Foreign Relations

    I like Obama’s approach. I believe that all countries of the world should reach out to each other and have healthy relationships. I believe if one country has a problem with another their should be a meeting with outside countries their to moderate and those two should attempt to come to an understanding. I don’t find there is a problem with an apology. I don’t believe that an apology makes a country weak, yet it shows humility. If one is too stubborn to apologize then there in lies a weakness. A man who seemingly has an agenda to meet with and make amends with various countries of controversy and make numerous speeches around the world to help bring the world together as one large happy family is most certainly worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize. The man is obviously looking to bring world peace through speaking to the entire world numerous times and opening himself and his heart and his country to others. He does so in the face of insensate criticism. To me, that is honorable. Obviously other have a differing view. I pray for them.

    Those are just a few. 🙂

  • Bill Hedges

    Yes, world peace in the spirit of Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright. You only read a few sentences of my comment, so you don’t understand award is for things done not said. Hitler had high sounding ideas, as does obama. Is obama Hitler, time will tell. Does obama deserve Nobel priae, certainly not yet.

    Obama is unrepentant like his mentor Bill Ayers. One only has to look at the views of his czars. In that light, give him award he deserves. For those are his actions.

    The horrid Capitalistic America ideas are also represented among his men. Along with pedophile, euro socialism, etc..

    Van Jones and the whole set of outcast, may be your idols‘. You certainly are fowl as liberals are under obama.

    Of all the accusations Palin was charded with, she was found innocent on all charges. As far as her dumbness and other derogatory remarks, she out did Bill Clinton in renown international meeting. She went through obama’s world peace. I meant obama’s treatment.

    You come here though you know your comments will be dismantled because of your views. You attack with your low brow tactics, same as obama. You are an obamite. Your tag is unimportant. I can say liberal, democrat, or obamaite. Liberal is description. Is easier than writing out full detailed accounting. A tag idenitfies you. Does nor define you.

    You want me to take your malarkey, then you are aghast if I return fire. Dissecting comments is purpose of site, cussing, insulting, and wishing death of others is not.

    Your behavior is not irreprehensible. You embody a street thug. One who wants to fight if I look you straight in the eye. Of course that is a metaphor, now…

    I am not interested in being buddy buddy. I’ll wish you the best and leave it at that. I don’t respect someone who wishes me death and not man enough to apology. You insult when your comments are destroyed. Who demeans other to build his self esteem, usually me.

    In your own unique way you will disagree. Which is fine. Just don’t expect a free pass.

    Although you left here to get a life, here you are. Again and again. You have at times behaved in manner expected. No types of vulgarity, but you revert back to same mythology.

    Now you have all this in your life. Good works. Seems contrived. Contradicting behavior. You come here for confrontation. Not discussion. Not believeable. Judge Judy logic.

    I do feel sorry for you. I might believe that you believe in obama. More the pity. False god disappoints… He is not as you see him. Americans are showing it. Polls shows fewer believers. Polls show his health plan is not it. He’s falling from grace. Proof should be seen in next election. As Bill Clinton found out. Never heard Bill talk about it…

  • JD

    Kendale – Your words do not fall on deaf ears but, with bill as an example, it is a shame that they also fall on dumb ones.

    I don’t understand this whole pick a team deal. there are somethings I agree and disagree with on Obama but it is his approach that I find I agree with most.

    Secondly, there is no way any president is going to make everyone happy. PERIOD.

    We are a divided people.

  • Bill Hedges

    “Kendale – Your words do not fall on deaf ears but, with bill as an example, it is a shame that they also fall on dumb ones.”

    Stay with your election articles. General speaking they don’t interest me. Nate will be polite to you unless you go crazy as you normal do. Then he’ll tell you where to go…But, you keep coming back to this site.

    “I don’t understand this whole pick a team deal. there are somethings
    I agree and disagree with on Obama but it is his approach that I find I agree with most.”

    When you become president you too can hire pedophile to care for children and all his other nuts like Van Jones.. Those liking obama are thinning out. I believe I heard quicker than Bush. If Congress ignores the will of the people, he will be in same situation as Bill Clinton, except in first four years. A Republican controlled Congress.

    I call someone dumb, who finds himself on a sinking ship, watches last safety craft leave half empty hoping the ship don’t sink.

    Democrats know the people don’t want purposed health bill, yet they stay on same course. Public option, if added as Speaker Nancy says must be in, by Supreme Court, must give to illegal’s. According to honest obama, he will veto. Or shall I say Wilson spoke the truth, again.

    We have documented his lies, You like a half-a– liar, so be it..

    “Secondly, there is no way any president is going to make everyone happy. PERIOD. “

    Yes. That is true. One out of 4 right JD… Not doing good …Call that dumb…

    “We are a divided people.”

    We were ’divided people’ in civil war. Like France, England, Germany, and like what all Countries; we have parties that have differing vews. Ameerica does have a president that kisses butts and says how bad America is.

    When obama went to Russia they would not shake his hand.

    Leader of Germany does not go around saying how bad they are for starting two world wars.
    Our man won’t face up to China for their humane right’s atrocities nor speak to the exiled religious leader recently. Nor does he speak out on young lady and others killed in Iran.

    But you JD and I guess Kendale, “it is his approach that I find I agree with most.”

    That is what liberal means to me, as learned by you two and Teddy Kennedy and obama. You care for people. But, if not convenient, then watch them die and be quiet about it.

    Since I am the dumb one. Tear my comment into pieces. But first explain what comments is, is. To Kenny

  • Bill Hedges

    JD

    You’re a fruit picker. You’ll take portions of my comment and pullout something I wrote and misconstrue it. Pick and choice. That is your operationally style.

    Anymore, If I’ve got the time, I will take each of your points. Not piecemeal it. The whole concept of your comment I take into account.

    A honest news reporter does that. Dishonest ones slants, using portion that fits his purpose.

    When insulted, I return fire. When I call you dumb or stupid (usually referring to what you wrote), I give reason. I have observed Nate does same. More likely than not, you and Kenny insult because I made a joke of your comments. Poor Kenny rants because I comment on his comments. You cry because I write a lot of political comments. What you really want is me not to make the fool of you. What you don’t see, your political view makes you the fool…

    I watched on Fox news recently, a long time employee of New York times I believe it was, he discussed how it got away from honest journalism. Where every President was keep honest. Not protected as this administration is.

    He talked with owner who has since died. Owner had concern for his paper. Concern was proper, today is shallow of it once greatness. Today most liberal medias on in bad financial condition.

    They brought reporter/writers of differing views, liberals. They were to see different perspective and add to paper. What they ended up doing instead, was slant the news to fit their belief. Creating yellow journalism.

    JD, your yellow comments are dishonest. As I just explained. You can piecemeal my comment to pretend I am dumb. But you can’t when taken whole…

    GREAT NEWS. BEFORE SUBMITTING THIS COMMENT, NOBEL COMMITTEE HAS CHOICEN ME FOR NOBEL PRiZE IN LITERATURE.

    I ACCEPTED…KEEPNG THE MONEY…

    HOLLYWOOD CALLED AND THEY ARE MAKING A MOVIE OF IT.

    ABOUT TIME.

  • “Yes, world peace in the spirit of Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright. You only read a few sentences of my comment, so you don’t understand award is for things done not said. Hitler had high sounding ideas, as does obama. Is obama Hitler, time will tell. Does obama deserve Nobel priae, certainly not yet.”

    The award is what ever the people who give the award says it is for. What ever Obama did with Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright has nothing to do with what he is doing and is going to do now. To say that is to say that all Caucasian politicians who lived racism are still anti-black in 2009. Perhaps some of them are, but I am not going to judge Obama on who he had around him in the past.

    Why, you’re right I was a street thug, does not mean I am one now. Have I lost contact with everyone from my past, nope. I still talk to people who rob, steal, and kill. I don’t rob, steal, or kill. So that argument is not only old and played out, it’s just ridiculous, as are many of the things that you waste time arguing about.

    You lower the respect of this website by saying that it’s whole point is to break down someones comment. If that’s the case, how lame and worthless of a website is that? Much better if it is about discussing politics and trying to bring about something positive by way of political discussion. My mistake if the people who come to the website do not want to change the bad yet cry about it and try to belittle each other rather than rally around an agreed subject matter and talk about way of eradicating the evils.

    “Obama is unrepentant like his mentor Bill Ayers. One only has to look at the views of his czars. In that light, give him award he deserves. For those are his actions.”

    So Obama runs the country on the mentoring of Ayers? Kewl, I didn’t know that, how did you? You must have an inside connection.

    “The horrid Capitalistic America ideas are also represented among his men. Along with pedophile, euro socialism, etc..”

    Oh so you don’t like the legislation he gets passed. Call your local representative and get them to vote the way that represents you. Can’t say that I care for pedophiles. I’m not afraid of socialism though. Then again I’ve been to the bottom, I only fear hell.

    “Van Jones and the whole set of outcast, may be your idols‘. You certainly are fowl as liberals are under obama. ”

    My only idol is someone who may have never existed but certainly depicts the person I would look up to, you may have heard of him, Jesus Christ. 🙂 I am not fowl. I never said Obama was my idol, nor any other man on earth for that matter. There you are, creating my life as you go again. How idiotic does that make you look? I don’t pretend to be able to tell you about your life outside of what you say to me.

    “Of all the accusations Palin was charded with, she was found innocent on all charges. As far as her dumbness and other derogatory remarks, she out did Bill Clinton in renown international meeting. She went through obama’s world peace. I meant obama’s treatment.”

    I could not possibly care any less about Sarah Palin, I mean truly, she does not even enter my mind without someone throwing her down my throat. As far as I’m concerned, she does not exist. I feel sorry for how she has been treated, but that is about as far as it goes with me. No one should be treated that way, pray for her rather than cry about it. Your cries can’t help her. Put your faith in something other than yourself and you may make progress.

    “You come here though you know your comments will be dismantled because of your views. You attack with your low brow tactics, same as obama. You are an obamite. Your tag is unimportant. I can say liberal, democrat, or obamaite. Liberal is description. Is easier than writing out full detailed accounting. A tag idenitfies you. Does nor define you.”

    You do not dismantle my comments, you give your opinion on my comments, nothing more. I call it how I see it, if it be low brow, then it’s low brow, but when I talk about the way that you act, I truly feel that way with all of my heart and soul. Is obamite a word? The spell check doesn’t like it. Then again how long did it take for the N word to hit Webster’s dictionary. As far as liberal goes, I’ll take that characteristic, as I stated, many of the things in religion are very liberal, though many other are conservative, just as JD and I try to tell you. I don’t agree with anyone all the time.

    “You want me to take your malarkey, then you are aghast if I return fire. Dissecting comments is purpose of site, cussing, insulting, and wishing death of others is not.”

    I’m never taken aback by your comments, I expect it. Again your comments on what I say are simply your opinions because you can not disprove my opinion, only give your own in return. I like swear words, they are more fun than a ! I don’t insult, I call it like I see it. I didn’t wish your death, I just said I would feel I have taken a loss. I admit it was mean of me, but only apology goes to God. I know I am not a good person at times, I am down right evil at times, I’m working on it. I am very good at putting on my mask when it is necessary, such as at work. I can honestly say I am a sweetheart 99.9% of the time. Hell, you and I can have our beer summit for all I care. I don’t hate you, I just think you are extremely irrational quite often. I think you only see the world from your own personal point of view and are entirely incapable of seeing things from the point of view of others. You are someone who comes off as if you can never be wrong about anything and people do not share your point of view they are in idiot or a liberal.

    “I am not interested in being buddy buddy. I’ll wish you the best and leave it at that. I don’t respect someone who wishes me death and not man enough to apology. You insult when your comments are destroyed. Who demeans other to build his self esteem, usually me.”

    I have no interest in building a friendship with you either, never ever mistake that Billy. I tell you how it is when I feel you are being completely irrational. My self esteem can NEVER EVER be boosted by you, ever, so there is no reason for you to think I talk to you for that purpose. The only thing that boosts my self esteem is when I have done a good service for someone. It makes me feel good when God places me in a situation in which I am capable of doing something to help someone else. I get high on it. Why else choose to be in the medical profession?

    “In your own unique way you will disagree. Which is fine. Just don’t expect a free pass.”

    No free passes needed. Nothing, absolutely NOTHING, in my life has ever come freely to me. My life has been constant struggle, form one to another. I don’t take hand outs, I bust my hump for everything.

    “Although you left here to get a life, here you are. Again and again. You have at times behaved in manner expected. No types of vulgarity, but you revert back to same mythology.”

    Mythology. If you are referring to my personal belief system, of course, why would I revert to anything else? Do not pretend that you do not insult myself and JD daily, you do. So if you are saying two wrongs make a right then check your own mythology, you are no better than him or I.

    “Now you have all this in your life. Good works. Seems contrived. Contradicting behavior. You come here for confrontation. Not discussion. Not believeable. Judge Judy logic.”

    I have absolutely no reason to lie to you about anything. So fabrication is out the window. Yes, my behavior does change quite frequently on this website. Those are my demons. As I stated before, I’m working on it. I will always have a temper and it will likely be expressed in a manner similar to the way I once was. That’s just me. But only when I feel it is O.K. such as internet discussion with someone like yourself. Will I act that way at work, school, church a local public place, not likely. I admit behaving that way here is quite risky as you can google my name and it points you directly to this site.

    “I do feel sorry for you. I might believe that you believe in obama. More the pity. False god disappoints… He is not as you see him. Americans are showing it. Polls shows fewer believers. Polls show his health plan is not it. He’s falling from grace. Proof should be seen in next election. As Bill Clinton found out. Never heard Bill talk about it… ”

    There is no reason for you to feel sorry for me at all, as I have told you, and you continuously deny it, what goes on within this website does not depict my personal or professional life. It stays right on this site. I believe in God, not Obama. I trust no man because all men have their own agenda and are influenced by those surrounding them. What I have faith in is not that Obama will save the world, yet that this too shall pass and my own personal day of judgment will come. If and when any man in politics does something that I agree with, I will point it out. That does not mean I am a cheerleader for that man, but a cheerleader of that action. See you obviously put your faith in man, I am sure that your favorite political figure is not perfect and that the two of you do not share the same belief in all matters. My faith will never be in man.’

    “You’re a fruit picker. You’ll take portions of my comment and pullout something I wrote and misconstrue it. Pick and choice. That is your operationally style.”

    You ask me what subjects are of interest to me and yet when I tell you, you give me a long winded comment about things that have nothing to do with any of them. You went right back to labeling me and talking about how I am Obama’s Fan Club President, which I am not and have told you time and time again. I call that cherry picking Billy. Don’t be a hypocrite.

    “When you become president you too can hire pedophile to care for children and all his other nuts like Van Jones.. Those liking obama are thinning out. I believe I heard quicker than Bush. If Congress ignores the will of the people, he will be in same situation as Bill Clinton, except in first four years. A Republican controlled Congress.”

    I didn’t know that running a country was a popularity contest. I am not rooting for the man I am looking for positive action. Why do you compare Obama to Bush now and say its bad forother to compare Obama to Bush? You say a republican controlled Congress as if that is a threat. Again, you refuse to let go of the Dem versus Rep thing. I dont care of there was never another Democrat in politics ever again as long as my life does not go down the toilet because of politicians. Get over it Billy.

    “We were ’divided people’ in civil war. Like France, England, Germany, and like what all Countries; we have parties that have differing vews. Ameerica does have a president that kisses butts and says how bad America is.”

    I’d have to say that America has not always made the right choices. If you say that always make the right choice that is to say they are never wrong about anything and are thus perfect. None of us are perfect. If we are not perfect then we make mistakes, and as you say, a person who does not apologize is not someone I can not respect, right Bill?

    “That is what liberal means to me, as learned by you two and Teddy Kennedy and obama. You care for people. But, if not convenient, then watch them die and be quiet about it.”

    “Anymore, If I’ve got the time, I will take each of your points. Not piecemeal it. The whole concept of your comment I take into account.

    A honest news reporter does that. Dishonest ones slants, using portion that fits his purpose.”

    So I say I like what I saw Obama did which was good then if Obama does something bad I must like what he does bad? What kind of 5 year old logic is that Bill, you know for fact that was about the weakest argument on earth.

    Kendale likes oranges, when oranges call on the ground and are no picked up, they attract rats, so Kendale likes rats. This is why I don’t get along with you. How many times do I have to say that because I like something Obama does, does not mean I like all of what Obama does. If I jump on a republican mans bandwagon does that makes me a republican? No. Just means I like what a republican man did and/or what that person is attempted to represent. Again, Faith in action, not in man.

    Example. I attended a certain missionary baptist church this past Sunday. I enjoyed the choir. I enjoyed the sermon. I did not enjoy one of the prayers that was spoken. There were people there who believe that some dood named Jesus and they added a fake last name Christ and said that he was God. I do not share that belief because the New Testament does not support that claim. Nor did Jesus when he spoke according to the New Testament. So since I enjoyed my time at that church does that mean I share their believe that Jesus was God? No.

    Nothing else worth commenting on after that, simply your opinion of my opinon and what ever JD says. The on to TV and newspapers which I don’t care anything about, it’s all entertainment and motivated by personal agenda’s whether it be for the money by attracting viewers or to sway the masses of views and readers to vote a certain way. Who cares?
