A Sternly Worded Ultimatum

After Iran admitted to the UN atomic energy lapdogs that they had indeed been building and using a second secret nuclear enrichment plant, President Obama jumped in and said he had known about it for months, and issued an ultimatum to the mullahs. He said, “Iran’s leaders must now choose – they can live up to their responsibilities and achieve integration with the community of nations, or they will face increased pressure and isolation, and deny opportunity to their own people.” What can we make of this sternly worded ultimatum? The mullahs have already demonstrated they have no interest in achieving integration with the community of nations, have no fear of increased pressure or isolation, and smile at the idea that they might care about denying opportunity to their own people. The president of the United States has in effect given Iran the green light to proceed unimpeded with development of nuclear weapons with which to obliterate Israel and command the Middle East.



We thank you, Barack

For taking us back

To the great days of Carter of Plains

A man now reviled

As the man who once dialed

Back a full half a century of gains

There are those who believe

That it’s righteous to grieve

For the days of inflation malaise

Which you will soon again

Bring to your countrymen

And which I am the first one to praise

In addition to which

I approve of your switch

From our allies to friends with our foes

Both the Poles and the Czechs

Must do as Putin becks

And Israelis their settlements must close

I most heart’ly applaud

Your near trip abroad

To the UN where Iran was told

That if they persist

In their nukes we’ll insist

That the next time they do it we’ll scold

That’s the way to be firm

Just your tone makes them squirm

Like Jimmy when fighting the rabbit

You’re a lot like James Earl

You fight like a girl

And when seeing a friend near you stab it



A Worse Jimmy Carter

President Obama said a number of things over the weekend in his Sunday talk show blitz and elsewhere, including 1) Requiring health insurance is not a tax increase; 2) I didn’t know Acorn was getting a whole lot of federal money; 3) Afghanistan strategy is still a work in progress; and 4) Missile defense decision was not about Russia.


Let’s take them one by one:


Requiring health insurance is not a tax increase. We will all be paying more for health insurance than we’re paying now, and while technically this may not be a tax increase in that the money will not be going directly to the federal treasury but to insurance companies, it’s still money out of pocket, so the effect is the same. Obama knows this is the first step toward a single payer system, at which point the money will be going directly to the federal treasury, and therefore a tax. Kind of like “It depends on what the meaning of is is”.


I didn’t know Acorn was getting a whole lot of federal money. Very nice parsing. He didn’t say he didn’t know Acorn was getting federal money, he said he didn’t know how much. Can anyone believe he doesn’t know all there is to know about Acorn, having worked side by side with them for twenty years?   


Afghanistan strategy is still a work in progress. He is going to pull out and declare victory, even though during the campaign he stated forcefully that it was a disgrace that the Bush administration had not rounded up bin Laden and his fellow terrorists, declaring getting them was the first thing he was going to do as president. Now it seems not as important as prosecuting and destroying the CIA.


Missile defense decision was not about Russia. Of course it wasn’t. Russian threats had nothing to do with it. I believe him on this one. The decision not to deploy the missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic was designed to alienate our allies and drive them back into the Russian orbit. All part of a larger plan to diminish the United States, the great oppressor in the eyes of community organizers everywhere.



Who is Obama and what does he want

Where is he going and why

Is it fourth down, is he going to punt

Or will he just sit down and cry

We don’t know the answer to what he is for

Or what he is firmly against

We do know he’s practically given the store

To people who should be defensed

Is giving up missiles protecting our land

A step in direction we like

And what about once or twice taking a stand

And not shrink from what comes down the pike

He says forced insurance is not a new tax

And kneeling to Putin is out

He says as for Acorn I don’t know the facts

But somehow I’m starting to doubt

With deficits soaring, inflation ahead

We might have to think about barter

And after just eight months I think could be said

We’ve elected a worse Jimmy Carter
