Comments Since Day 1:
You had your chance! Which is something you keep leaving out. You trolled chatrooms and was a complete and total lying prick. You were challenged to a face-to-face, and you backed down repeatedly because you're a gutless, spineless, lily-livered, scared-to-death craven little coward. Don't like it? Then you should've backed up your empty words.
Another day, another "blog" post from the Leftist leach who can't do anything on his "blog" without me. Predictably, the coward used his echo chamber
How original! Totally not stolen, Mr. Bubble! How dare I block out all those people! Oh, wait... it's just YOU. And you'll see one major reason why I do in juuuuust a minute.
to excuse all the Obama Administration officials with direct ties to Goldman Sachs by saying, "Sure, he took all that money, but then he went to Congress and told them to go after Goldman Sachs." Funny how you left out that "all that money" was from EMPLOYEES. Gee, that's what George W. Bush did with Enron, but the Left still screamed about his ties to Ken Lay.
You conveniently left out which president was at the helm when Goldman-Sachs broke the law and which president bailed them out twice. Not to mention all the energy deregulation that caused these problems. Funny! Get back to us when Obama is flying around in Goldman-Sachs' planes.
Basically you're saying liberals are hypocrites because Bush didn't give dead-to-rights Ken Lay a presidential pardon? Kay.
"I'm an Independent(tm). Both sides are bad... so vote Republican!" The modern right doesn't have any substantive political criticism of the left that goes beyond just projection of their own failures. Which is too bad, because there would be a place in America for rational conservatism. But apparently there is no place in the modern Republican Party for rational conservatives.
Since my Leftist leech counterpart is too scared to allow comments on his "blog" to point out his clear hypocrisy, we'll just have to keep pointing it out on a blog that isn't afraid of comments.
NOW you're finally catching on. You HAVE to post things publicly. You'll see a major reason why in just a second.
In the "Call for You, Mr. Kettle" Department, President Obama went off on technology: With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations, -- none of which I know how to work -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation. Wait. Didn't the President give the Queen of England an iPod with his speeches loaded on it?
iPodGate! This is Obama's Waterloo/Katrina/9-11!
On the iPod:
- Video from the Queen's 1957 Jamestown Visit
- Video from the Queen's 2007 Jamestown Visit
- Video from the Queen's 2007 Richmond Visit
- Photos from the Queen's 2007 White House State Visit
- Photos from the Queen's 2007 Jamestown, Va., Visit
- Photos from the Queen's 2007 Richmond, Va., Visit
- Photos from President Obama's Inauguration
- Audio of then-state senator Obama's speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention
- Audio of President Obama 2009 Inauguration Address
- A bunch of Broadway hit songs
Funny how you left just a FEW of those things out. Thus confirming what Obama was talking about.
It's a gift from a President to the Queen of England, so it has American songs, photos of the Queen in the United States, and two videos of the President who gave her the iPod. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!
I gave a DVD Player to a friend as a gift. Does that mean I can no longer say that most movies SUCK nowadays?
Here he is preaching about information as a "tool of empowerment" but he's never felt motivated enough to learn how to use the technology that can be used to gain access to the "tool of empowerment." Yet, he feels the need to attack something he admits he doesn't understand.
Sorry, he's right.
Which, surprise surprise, brings us to his comments about talk radio and blogs. He said "some of the craziest claims can quickly claim traction." (First off, isn't it gain traction?)
Obama did say "gain traction." Listen for yourself:
You see, THIS is one of the major reasons why I'm forcing you (and only you) to post on your own blog. If this was buried in a comment, I wouldn't get to laugh at you publicly embarrassing yourself. And don't say "Well, this source says that Obama said 'claim'..." You need to check the ORIGINAL source in order to be taken seriously. And the actual speech was available long before you posted. That's another one for the Question List. Yet again, you prove Obama's point.
I'm sure the President isn't referring to MSNBC, the now-defunct Air America, DailyKos, or DemocraticUnderground, which are all breeding grounds for Leftist conspiracy theories and absurd attacks on conservatives and Republicans. (Just like the Leftist coward's "blog," now that I think about it.)
Oh, really? Where's my conspiracy theory, Mr. Climatologists Are Lying For Grant Money? You want to talk about conspiracies? Have you heard the latest?
No comment from the President about his addiction to his Blackberry, though.
So, am I supposed to hate Obama because he criticizes the media, because he controls the media, or because he loves the media? I'm having a difficult time keeping track of Conservative outrage.
If information is power, it's clear the President has the power of a burnt out light bulb.
Sorry, Obama's right about information overload. Technology is supposed to help us understand and simplify the amount of complexity we're presented with. Instead, technology more often than not, further complicates the complexity of information we're presented with.
Obama: "I do think part of what's different today is the 24-hour news cycle and cable TV and blogs and all this. They focus on the most extreme elements in both sides. They can't get enough of conflict. It's catnip to the media right now. And so the easiest way to get 15 minutes of fame is to be rude to somebody. In that environment, I think it makes it more difficult to solve the problems the American people sent us here to solve."
He nailed it. There are so many sources telling you what's important, and from so many different viewpoints, that often only the loudest gets through, instead of more useful informational content or a more inclusive sample of voices heard.
He's absolutely right. But that's a point that's probably beyond the resolving power of today's Conservative mind.
