White House Replaces Bust of Winston Churchill with a Portrait of Neville Chamberlain……. “Peace In Our Time”

Now that the London Olympics have ended and the Presidential election just around the corner the administration has moved quietly to try and cement our “special relationship” with Great Britain. The first order of business is to replace the bust of Winston Churchill, graciously lent to the White House by Great Britain after 9/11. As you may recall, the Churchill sculpture was returned to the British by President Obama when he came into office and ultimately found a home in the residence of the British Ambassador in Washington DC.

Churchill on socialism

At the time, in 2009, this action caused a stir among the Brits with many upset and offended as, needless to say, Winston Churchill is still regarded as a hero and great statesman to most of England and the world. From The Telegraph a London newspaper:

“The bust of the former prime minister once voted the greatest Briton in history, which was loaned to George W Bush from the Government’s art collection after the September 11 attacks, has now been formally handed back. The bronze by Sir Jacob Epstein, worth hundreds of thousands of pounds if it were ever sold on the open market, enjoyed pride of place in the Oval Office during President Bush’s tenure. But when British officials offered to let Mr. Obama to hang onto the bust for a further four years, the White House said: “Thanks, but no thanks.”

Over the past three years  the story had died down until White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer, in an effort to embarrass columnist Charles Krauthammer –who had used the incident as an example of Obama’s attitude towards the British–publicly attacked him by claiming that Charles was fabricating the story and the bust had actually been moved to another location in the white house.

I won’t go into the sorry details because they are all available in Charles’ column, but Winston Churchill happens to be one of my heroes and I was truly upset by President Obama’s unprecedented snub. It appears that White House heroes  these days, are not called Winston but rather; Mao, Che, Fidel and Hugo. And now I guess we can add Neville.

Pfeiffer who has been working in overdrive to try and repair the damage caused by his well publicized gaffe, was instrumental in reaching an agreement with the British Government to replace the Churchill bust in the Oval Office with a portrait of former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain entitled “Peace In Our Time”.

Neville Chamberlain

Yes We Can!

Democratic Party insiders are jubilant. A spokesman for David Axelrod stated: “President Obama’s world view is so in sync with that of  former Prime Minister Chamberlain that they will both go down in history as true men of peace.  After all, the President has already received a Nobel Peace Prize.”  Debbie Wasserman Schultz added: “President Obama exemplifies everything the former Prime Minister stood for and is probably the first world leader since Mr. Chamberlain who has demonstrated that appeasing “evil dictators” actually works– so much more sensible than the warlike Mr. Churchill.”

Obama Peace in our time

Signed by the Ayatollah himself!

Bill Burton, the former White House Deputy Press Secretary and head of Priorities USA Super PAC, is already planning a campaign ad touting President Obama as a Man of Peace. In it he shows old footage of Chamberlain and Hitler at Munich with a side by side video of President Obama reaching out to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The voiceover states: “Just like Prime Minister Chamberlain President Obama was not afraid to take the first step.”

Obama and Ahmedinejad

Ok Mahmoud…I’ll throw in Syria if you promise not to make any further demands

No word yet from the British who found the Chamberlain portrait in the same warehouse where they are storing President Obama’s state gifts; (1) the DVD collection of the Greatest American Films (not readable on European DVD formats) and (2) the iPod given to the Queen containing his greatest speeches.

Let’s not forget:

With 77 days left until Barack The Pretender gets voted out of office

US National Debt stands at: $15.9 trillion

Unemployment stands at: 15.2 million people

The price of gas is: $3.72 for a gallon of Regular

And that’s the way it is here: a little left of right

Obama To Announce Revolutionary New Energy Program….Biden To Wear Windmill!

President Obama has been crisscrossing the country touting his accomplishments in alternative energy while demagoguing Republican desires to increase domestic oil production and other forms of carbon based energy. In his current speeches he ridicules Republicans, for their stand on expanding oil drilling (“old energy”), shale recovery and “fracking” in lieu of new sources such as wind power, solar and algae among others.

Obama wind energy

If we had a windmill in this stadium I could be powering my teleprompter right now!

Wind and solar power are technologies that have been around for decades or longer. In fact Columbus crossed the Atlantic using wind power! Had these been truly transformative technologies the private sector would have pounced on them long ago. Unfortunately, the US power grid is so vast and hungry that at best these alternatives will only have a minor impact in the decades to come.

But our President doesn’t really care about technological and economic feasibility he’s much more interested in idealogical practicality. So in order to appeal to his left wing base, he has staked his reputation on green energy and green jobs even at a cost of $5 million per job. Never mind a few inconvenient truths:

Old energy works. New energy has yet to be proven commercially scalable

Oil exploration, extraction, transmission, refining is a proven job generator

What’s wrong with drilling for oil while we explore other alternatives?

obama-solar-one1

….and what the Republicans won’t tell you is that we’ve actually created 12 green jobs here!

That’s why during a speech this past March at the Copper Mountain Solar 1 facility (with a backdrop of 400 acres of solar panels) the President failed to mention that the solar company only had 12 full time employees.

This is the type or reasoning that “Barack the Venture Socialist” doesn’t like to consider. Since he’s beholden to the left wing environmental groups, he forges ahead investing massive public funds into untested, un-vetted, alternative energy  companies that appeal to his political base.

Solyndra, Beacon Evergreen Solar, Spectra Watt, Ener1,…….all failed testaments to his legacy as a Venture Socialist.

However, here’s an idea for you:

In the spirit of bi-partisanship, hope and change I will propose an idea to the President that will transform him into a true energy revolutionary, create millions of green jobs and guarantee his re-election.  It will be called OPEGA; The Obama Personal Energy Generation Act  and will work as follows:

Solyndra, and all other US solar panel manufacturers will be put back in business with massive government subsidies. They will redesign and produce, in large quantities, a smaller solar panel that can be comfortably worn on a person’s back…much like a digital billboard.

Walking billboards

Now I finally feel like I’m part of the “Green Revolution”

Ener1, and all other storage battery manufacturers will also be turned around with government help to develop a super storage battery which can be worn around a person’s waist.

A Personal Energy Kit (PEK) will be produced to combine a solar panel with a backpack type of harness and a battery pack worn around the waist. The kit will be inter-connected so that the electricity generated by the panel is stored in the battery.

When the battery is fully charged the user will simply go to a Government Owned Discharge (GOD) station and upload the stored electricity into the power grid. An immediate “power payment” will be issued and deposited directly into the user’s checking account.

GOD station

Wow…I just made 100 bucks for being in the sun all day!

Every unemployed person and all welfare recipients will be eligible to get a PEK when they apply for benefits.

And that’s all there is to it!  Pure green energy. Millions of unemployed put back to work (lowering that pesky unemployment rate).  Can there be a better job?  Fresh air, sunlight, walking around with the sun on your back or simply hanging out. For those a bit more ambitious, the solar panels can serve as digital billboards when the sun sets at which point advertisers will pick up the cost.

Introducing OPEGA

The OPEGA program will be the greatest green job creator in the history of this country!

Imagine how much power could be generated just by issuing PEK’s to the Obama surrogates as they crisscross the country!

I propose that Al Gore and Joe Biden be the poster boys for this campaign by having them wear PEK’s anytime they’re outdoors and beanies with propellers so we don’t forget about wind power!

BeaniePropellerCap-

Al and Joe…you can have any color beanie you want.

There you have it Mr. President! A bold,  innovative, approach to energy that will surely rank you among the presidential greats and far exceed the accomplishments of FDR and Abraham Lincoln.

Let’s not forget:

With 82 days left until Barack The Pretender gets voted out of office

US National Debt stands at: $15.9 trillion

Unemployment stands at: 15.2 million people

The price of gas is: $3.70  for a gallon of Regular

Pimping For Obama…Harry Reid, Bill Burton and other great Americans

The awards this week must unquestionably go to Senator Harry Reid and Bill Burton, head of Super Pac Priorities USA, two courageous Americans who at significant personal risk supported our Pretender in Chief in achieving lows rarely seen in American politics. But why not, after all they are Obama people, and evidently love being lap dogs for this transformational politician who brought us change, hope, fair play and the ability to rise out of the gutter.

Let’s take a look a Senator Harry Reid, the pathetic grey little man who is the Democratic Senate Majority Leader.   This pillar of virtue stood on the Senate floor and boldly floated a rumor that “the word is out: Governor Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes in ten years”. Who is the source of this information?  Someone from Bain Capital is all that Mr. Reid would say. When pressed further he simply stated that Mr. Romney could put an end to all these stories by simply releasing ten years of his tax returns.

harry reid great American

If we lose the Senate I’ll be reduced to a sad grey little man!

It is interesting to note that Mr. Reid has never released any tax returns of his own and he made sure that his accusations were made on the floor of the Senate, one of the few venues where you can’t be sued for libel or slander. As if on cue,  Botox Queen Nancy Pelosi chimed in several days later stating “well if Harry said someone told him then it must be true”

pelosi on botox

I’m just wild about Harry

I have just become aware of a recent rumor that has been sweeping the internet. It appears that Harry Reid is a notorious cross dresser and has been wearing women’s underwear for the past ten years.  Mr. Reid is apparently very partial to Victoria’s Secret and certain select undergarments in bright red. Unsubstantiated you say?  Well the story is certainly out there but Senator Reid can quickly put an end to these rumors. Harry, just drop your pants!  

cross dress

Excuse me I’m on my lunch break!

 

This brings us to the pond slime spawned Mr. Burton.  A former Obama White House Deputy Press Secretary (aren’t they all) Burton now runs the Super Pac Priorities USA. This group  has put out a political attack ad, most likely the most disgusting, repulsive, dishonest, blatantly misleading, and sleazy piece of work ever created by any political party.  It essentially holds Mitt Romney responsible for the cancer death a steelworker’s (Joe Soptic) wife following the closing of GS Steel a company owned by Bain Capital.

There is no point in going into specifics here as everyone is aware of the story which has proven to be totally fabricated and false.  But it was interesting to watch Mr. Burton with his ever present dim-witted look deny on CNN that the ad was meant to paint Romney as someone whose policies were responsible for the death of this woman. “We would never infer anything like that” said the man whose IQ ranks right up there with White House Communications director Dan Pfeiffer (he of the recent “what bust of Churchill” fame).  Really?  Well what was the point of the ad Bill?

Bill Burton

Am I really as dumb as I look?

Burton went on to say to theHuffington Post” “The truth is, there are a lot of sad stories that came as a result of what happened when Mitt Romney was in business,” Burton said. “I don’t think those stories should be off limits because they’re particularly heartbreaking.”

“Our spots have been factual and well within the bounds of what we think is appropriate,” Burton continued.

But no media organization is talking about Mitt Romney. No one is even talking about the ad’s subject, Joe Soptic — save for the holes in his story and his links to the Obama campaign. What every media organization is talking about is precisely how out of bounds this ad was, how factually inaccurate it is and how it reveals links between the Obama campaign and it’s supporting PACs which are forbidden by law.

So who’s the slimiest of them all? It’s a tough choice; Reid the Senate fool, Burton the moron, Axelrod the hypocrite, the mainstream media for their handling of this….My vote goes to the Community Organizer in Chief, who has yet to even criticize the ad. He of “we can rise above partisan politics” is busy on a speaking tour blasting Republican Super Pacs.

Obama tough

Those dirty rats! Keep the pressure on them

Rise above the slime Barack and maybe the rest of the pond scum will follow.

Let’s not forget:

With 86 days left until Barack The Pretender gets voted out of office

US National Debt stands at: $15.9 trillion

Unemployment stands at: 15.2 million people

And that’s the way it is here: a little left of right
