Obama guilty of Race Baiting for Political Gain; Socialist “Victimology” Honed to a Razor Edge

Which would benefit from Political Race Baiting?

Which would benefit from Political Race Baiting?

(Is it just me? Or does the Barack on the left resemble Jimmy Carter?)

There is not a single person in the United States who does not realize that Socialist Race Baiting works to divide the country. Some like it and some don’t.

Bottom line… it is destructive to America.

But then that is the Socialist Plan of “Victimology”, isn’t it?

This latest performance of Barack Obama calling the Cambridge Police stupid for arresting Henry Louis Gates Jr. after he had proven he owned the house is pure Socialist Ninja Race Card Throwing for Political Gain.

Pardon me, Bullcrapper-In-Chief, but Gates was arrested for staging a Race Card Nutty assault on a police officer in a public place. Gates created this circus side show and he got his ass rightfully arrested for it.

Let me repeat that: Gates created this circus side show and he got his ass rightfully arrested for it.

That you pull a Jesse Jackson and twist it into an act of Racism by the Officer displays your warped view of the world and your chip on your shoulder which seems to somehow give you a right to be a Racist against white folks.

Now this whole situation is being picked apart and examined in microscopic detail to the nth degree. And your glaring racist opportunism gets magnified.

You are not scaring anyone, Barack, you racist pompous ass. And, no, we are not a nation of cowards afraid to face the race issue, straight up.


Lets see what is being Reported over at The Boston Herald…

Cop unions rip President Obama comments

Cambridge police ‘deeply pained’

By Laura Crimaldi And Marie Szanislo
Friday, July 24, 2009 – Updated 5h ago

Police nationwide are reeling from President Obama’s televised reprimand of Cambridge cops for “acting stupidly” in the arrest of Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.

“My response is that this department is deeply pained,” said Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas yesterday. “It deeply hurts the pride of this agency.”

Local union officials representing Cambridge Sgt. James Crowley, 42, would not rule out taking their outrage over Obama’s remarks to the picket line next month when the first family lands on Martha’s Vineyard for a vacation.

Then there is this article from TheLedger.com…

Obama Steps Squarely Into Racial Politics

President says Mass. police “acted stupidly” in arresting Harvard professor.

WASHINGTON | By inserting himself Wednesday night into the case of an arrested Harvard University professor, President Barack Obama made the most overt step of his tenure into the nation’s racial politics.

The measured and cautious Obama that Americans have come to know might have demurred when, at the end of his prime-time news conference, he was asked about the arrest last week of Henry Louis Gates Jr., a prominent African American-studies scholar and friend of the president’s.

But Obama was emotive and unequivocal in concluding that the Cambridge, Mass., police had “acted stupidly” in arresting Gates, who is black, after he tried to pry open a stuck door to gain entry to his own home.

Obama said he did not know what role, if any, race played. But he also seemed to welcome the opportunity to teach a larger racial lesson: Obama used the question to recall his sponsorship as an Illinois state legislator of legislation to crack down on racial profiling, noting that “there is a long history in this country of African Americans and Latinos being stopped” disproportionately by police.

“Race remains a factor in this society,” the president said. “That doesn’t lessen the incredible progress that has been made. I am standing here as testimony to the progress that’s been made. And yet, the fact of the matter is that, you know, this still haunts us.”

The foray into the Gates episode was surprising for a number of reasons, most notably because Obama so carefully sought to avoid racially charged topics that might have made some voters uncomfortable with electing a black man to the White House.

As a candidate, Obama defused the Jeremiah Wright controversy – the firestorm over anti-American remarks by his former pastor – by delivering a speech on race that was viewed as sensitive to all sides, including whites fed up with policies such as racial preferences.

During the campaign, he said affirmative action should be applied on the basis of class and need, not on the basis of race.

Obama also initially was cautious during his candidacy when the Jena Six case took the national spotlight. Black leaders were outraged that Louisiana officials had charged six black teenagers with attempted murder, rather than a lesser offense, in the beating of a white student. The 2006 incident followed months of racial unrest in Jena, La., after white students hung nooses from a tree traditionally used by whites at the high school after black students sought permission to sit beneath it.

But Obama’s initial reaction was criticized by some black leaders as tepid. The Rev. Jesse Jackson accused Obama of “acting like he’s white” by failing to speak more boldly on the case, according to a newspaper that reported the remark. Jackson later said the comment did not reflect his opinion.

In addressing black audiences, such as the NAACP’s national convention last week, Obama tends to focus his remarks on ways that black America can help itself. And he quipped during a springtime news conference that, amid the anxiety of the economic downturn, any pride felt by the country in the racial progress symbolized by his inauguration “lasted about a day.”

Obama’s willingness to step into the Gates controversy was surprising, too, because some facts in the case remain in dispute. It also potentially puts him at odds with police officers who could rally around the cause of the Cambridge officer, Sgt. James Crowley.

Gates, 58, was arrested after he had to force his way into his locked house after returning from an overseas trip. A police report claims that Gates was disorderly when Crowley asked him for identification.

In recounting the story, Obama credited Gates with showing the police his ID. He clearly sided with his friend.

It was an unusually certain statement for a president who has flaunted his deliberative, open-minded style of leadership. Asked in March why it took him several days to express outrage over bonuses awarded to employees of the bailed-out insurance giant AIG, Obama fired back: “It took us a couple of days because I like to know what I’m talking about before I speak.”

It is not clear whether Obama had spoken with Gates or read the police report, but he clearly was well acquainted with the controversy.

    Socialist Government Media Spin on the Gates Incident…

  2. Hey girl, great post, that picture is CREEPY. I can’t stand to look at it.

    Yes, that is exactly what he did, planted that reporter and had his answer ready to go. He wanted to achieve several things, one to move the focus from health destruction, move focus to racism (which some people are LOVING him for it) and are getting riled up BIG TIME! I saw a demonstration of what it was doing yesterday at a sandwich shop (that had a TV in the corner). DRIVING his DIVISIVE WEDGE into AMERICA even further.

    I already said my spill on your last post and that is my story and I’ sticking to it.

    Robert Gibbs is so petulant to anyone that is non-liberal, oh let me rephrase that anyone non-radical like Obama. I can’t take him as a Press Secretary seriously at all.

  4. On the first vid, I love how GATES is using his newly learned Chicago Style mobster mentality and trys to buy/BRIBE the reporter by telling him he can have the question spot that normally is given to the AP. hahahaahah

    Gibbs should be a professional clown. The only thing that’s missing is clown makeup.

    The birth certificate issue is not going to die. I believe it now has a life of it own and will keep dogging obama until the truth comes out.

  8. m2 says:

    I wonder if it will come to the point that they bribe a doctor and re-create one, like they forged Bush’s papers…

  9. VotingFemale says:

    I think Obama enjoys having a white cartoon-esque buffoon for press secretary.

  10. m2 says:

    One thing I have been wondering…
    they may not let him run in 2012. I think that is when the BC will shape up to be his undoing. And perhaps the Clintons will see to it.

    But if they tried to make his Presidency null now with it, or impeach him, I’m not sure the African-American community who over 95% supported him will accept it. You know? Like it could be total chaos.

    Which is why this situation might just end up resolving in 2012 before the Presidential primaries begin.

  11. tellitlikeitis says:

    If a birth certificate is produced I hope it is allowed to be scrutinized by professionals. If not than people will believe it is bogus.

    All the Walter wannabes have a ways to go to match the dean of television newscasters who died last Friday. Americans like longtime CBS newscaster Walter Cronkite much more than the current crew of network anchors, perhaps because they see him as less ideologically liberal.

    It was long ago, before the advent of 24/7 news and internet.

    Anchors and talking heads used to be more objective, even if they had a personal liberal sympathy.

    For the most part.

    Now the media outlets- all, or owned in conglomerate of 6 or 7 companies. With each company pushing ideology, based on either think tank focused direction for whichever side.

    Rush Limbaugh said that for the media Obama has been their Waterloo. They have no credibility, they’ve existed soley on the reporting not of details or facts about legislation but can he pass it, can he win? Can he not pass it.

    It’s true.

  24. VotingFemale says:

    Obama is hiding his LFBC because he wants to be president. period… and the socialists back him up because they would look like a pack of crooks for not vetting him.

    This is NOT GOING AWAY…

    This will likely be the biggest blowout in American History…

    And Lou Dobbs is deflecting the typical Socialist Attacks by stating he believes Obama is a natural born citizen and wants Obama to simply prove it to put this issue to bed…

    There is a huge partisan divide on the health care plan. Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Democrats favor it. However, the plan is opposed by 80% of Republicans and 60% of those not affiliated with either major party.

  26. m2 says:

    It’s all in terms of “winning” or “losing”… they’ve fractured America into sides. They being on his side in large mass. And no longer report anything of impact to us, nothing of reality, but report on whether Obama is winning or losing at any given moment.

    It’s sad. And it’s also why the people dislike News anchors, media conglomerates… and many Americans turn to the freedom of the internet and their fellow Americans…

    Which is why Rockefeller/Obama want to control the internet too.

    This video just proves my point. Our so called representatives do not represent the people any more. They do not want to hear any dissent from us and we should just be good little sheeple , be quiet and leave them alone.

  64. m2 // July 24, 2009 at 9:31 am

    I wonder if it will come to the point that they bribe a doctor and re-create one, like they forged Bush’s papers…

    M2, HERE IS YOUR ANSWER ON THIS,

    One of these days the Obama administration might serve up for your culinary consumption the most perfect long form birth certificate you could ever imagine. Hawaii officials will vouch for its authenticity under oath if need be. And numerous forensic experts will substantiate its veracity.

    Then the POTUS eligibility movement is going to look like a vast nutjob right wing conspiracy.

    And the ineligible one will be so much stronger and more powerful for it.

    The BC thing is a side dish, not the main course. Any discussion of the BC issue should be subordinate to the dual nationality issue.

  65. tellitlikeitis says:

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 30% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-eight percent (38%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8 (see trends).

    Just 25% believe that the economic stimulus package has helped the economy.

    The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates also available on Twitter.

    Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Today marks the first time his overall approval rating has ever fallen below 50% among Likely Voters nationwide. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove.

    Eighty-three percent (83%) of Democrats continue to approve of the President’s performance while 80% of Republicans disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 37% offer a positive assessment. The President earns approval from 51% of women and 47% of men.

    These updates are based upon nightly telephone interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. Most of the interviews for today’s update were completed before the President’s nationally televised press conference on Wednesday night. The first update based entirely upon interviews conducted after the press conference will be released on Sunday.

    It is important to remember that the Rasmussen Reports job approval ratings are based upon a sample of likely voters. Some other firms base their approval ratings on samples of all adults. President Obama’s numbers are always several points higher in a poll of adults rather than likely voters. That’s because some of the President’s most enthusiastic supporters, such as young adults, are less likely to turn out to vote.

  66. VotingFemale says:

    yup, Tellit…

    Obama is headed for his Waterloo….

    yoooo hoooo

  67. VotingFemale says:

    Warrent… It is likely there is blackmail going on…

    someone knows the truth and has the goods…

  68. tellitlikeitis says:

    Consumers’ Mood Wanes on Growing Economic Pessimism

    U.S. consumer confidence waned in late July to its lowest ebb since April on growing pessimism about the long-term economic outlook, especially about income and jobs, a survey showed Friday, even as some economists reckon the longest recession in decades may be easing.

    The Reuters/University of Michigan Surveys of Consumers said its final July consumer sentiment reading fell to 66.0 from June’s 70.8, though it was slightly higher than economists’ median expectation for a reading of 65.0, according to a Reuters poll.

    The index of consumer expectations fell to 63.2 in July’s final reading, from 69.2 in June.

    “Consumers believe that the economic free-fall is now over, but consumers see little reason to believe the stimulus policies will improve their financial condition anytime soon,” the Reuters/University of Michigan Surveys of Consumers said in a statement.

    On the long-term outlook, 58 percent of respondents said they anticipated bad times, up from 49 percent in May. Lower income and less favorable job prospects in the next year are key factors making consumers anxious about their financial position, the statement said.

    “People are a little more worried about the economy, especially over the labor market and what’s happening in Washington. It’s still consistent with the picture that the economy is bottoming out, but you are not going to get a big bounce in consumer spending,” said David Wyss, chief economist with Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services in New York.

    The current conditions index slipped to 70.5 in the final July reading, from 73.2 in June.

    U.S. stocks extended losses after the report’s release, but the dollar and safe-haven Treasury bonds traded fairly steady.

    “We are going to see the stock market improve, but it has gotten ahead of itself given my expectations of a soft economic recovery. We are going to need a mid-rally correction. This (recent rebound) is the biggest rally we’ve had since the 1930s, and it makes me nervous,” Wyss said.

    “Recent income gains were reported by the fewest consumers in the more than 60-year history of the survey in each of the past three months. Reported declines in income, from lost jobs, shorter work hours, cuts in pay or bonuses were also at record levels,” the survey statement said.

    Jobless Checks for Millions Delayed as States Struggle

    Jobless Checks for Millions Delayed as States Struggle

    The New York Times
    Years of state and federal neglect have hobbled the nation’s unemployment system just as a brutal recession has doubled the number of jobless Americans seeking aid.

    AP
    ——————————————————————————–

    In a program that values timeliness above all else, decisions involving more than a million applicants have been slowed, and hundreds of thousands of needy people have waited months for checks.

    And with benefit funds at dangerous lows even before the recession began, states are taking on billions in debt, increasing the pressure to raise taxes or cut aid, just as either would inflict maximum pain.

    Sixteen states, with exhausted funds, are now paying benefits with borrowed cash, and their number could double by the year’s end.

    Call centers and Web sites have been overwhelmed, leaving frustrated workers sometimes fighting for days to file an application.

    While the strained program still makes more than 80 percent of initial payments within three weeks — slightly below the standard set under federal law — cases that require individual review are especially prone to delay. Thirty-eight states are failing to make those decisions within the federal deadline.

    For workers who survive a paycheck at a time, even a week’s delay can mean a missed rent payment or foregone meals.

    Kenneth Kottwitz, a laid-off cabinet maker in Phoenix, waited three months for his benefits to arrive. He exhausted his savings, lost his apartment and moved to a homeless shelter.

    Luis Coronel, a janitor at a San Francisco hotel, got $6,000 in back benefits after winning an appeal. But in the six months he spent waiting, there were times when he and his pregnant wife could not afford to eat.

    “I was terrified my wife and daughter would have to live on the street,” Mr. Coronel said.

    Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said: “Obviously, some of our states were in a pickle. The system wasn’t prepared to deal with the enormity of the calls coming in.”

    The program’s problems, though well known, were brushed aside when unemployment was low.

    “The unemployment insurance system before the recession was as vulnerable as New Orleans was before Katrina,” said Representative Jim McDermott, Democrat of Washington, who is chairman of a House panel with authority over the program.

    Now the number of unemployed Americans has doubled since 2007 to 15 million and the program is more than tripling in size. About 9.5 million people are collecting benefits, up from about 2.5 million two years ago. Spending is expected to reach nearly $100 billion this year, about triple what it was two years ago.

    Given how suddenly the workload has increased, some analysts say the delays might have been even worse.

    “Payments are later than they should be, and later than they used to be, but states have been overwhelmed,” said Rich Hobbie, director of the National Association of State Workforce Agencies, which represents the program’s administrators. “Considering the significant problems in the program, unemployment is responding well.”

    The recovery act passed in February provided states an additional $500 million for administration. It also suspended interest payments through 2011 for states paying benefits with federal loans.

    Unemployment insurance began as a New Deal effort with dual goals: to sustain idled workers and stimulate weak economies. States finance benefits by taxing employers, typically building surpluses in good times to cover payments in bad.

    In 2007, the average state paid about $290 a week and aided 37 percent of the unemployed.

    As downturns over the last 20 years proved infrequent and mild, states cut taxes, and the federal government, which pays administrative costs, reduced its support by about 25 percent. The states’ performance sagged.

    In a recent report to the Department of Labor, Ohio said its computer problems “kept the system performance at a snail’s pace.” Louisiana said its call center was staffed with “temporary workers, with little knowledge” of unemployment insurance.

    North Carolina said a wave of retirements had left it “unable to maintain pace or volume of work.” Virginia wrote “performance continued to be very stagnant” and called the odds of improvement “bleak.”

    By 2007, 11 states were paying benefits so slowly they violated multiple federal rules, up from just two at the start of the decade.

    While most eligibility reviews can be done by computer, about a quarter require a caseworker — to ensure, say, the applicant was laid off, rather than quit

    Minimum Wage Hike Means More Recession?

    Minimum Wage Hike Means More Recession?
    Published: Friday, 24 Jul 2009 | 7:48 AM ET Text Size By: AP
    A federal minimum wage increase that takes effect Friday could prolong the recession, some economists say, by forcing small businesses to lay off the same workers that the pay hike passed in better times was meant to help.

    The increase to $7.25 means 70 cents more an hour for the lowest-paid workers in the 30
    AP
    ——————————————————————————–

    states that have lower minimums or no minimum wage.

    It also means higher costs for employers who feel they’ve already trimmed all their operating fat.

    “How will they absorb the increase?” said Rajeev Dhawan, director of Georgia State University’s Economic Forecasting Center. “They will either hire less people or they will do less business.”

    More than in any period before, businesses are likely to lay off employees and reduce hours, further fueling the economic slump in states seeing double-digit unemployment rates, fiscal conservatives and some economists say.

    Minimum wage advocates counter the wage bump will keep more working poor afloat, and say more increases are needed to help stimulate consumer spending and strengthen businesses in the long run.

    It’s an old policy debate that resurfaced when Congress passed the increase two years ago and has taken on urgency as the nation’s fiscal funk has deepened.

    In the end, it’s the workers and their employers who find themselves caught in the middle.

    Key Chairman Threatens to Bypass Committee on Health Care Bill

    A key House committee chairman on Friday threatened to bypass moderate Democrats who are holding up the health care reform bill and bring the package straight to the floor, in the latest showdown on health care that is dividing Congress and Democratic party ranks.

    A key House committee chairman on Friday threatened to roll over moderate Democrats who are holding up the health care reform bill and bring the package straight to the floor.

    The statement underscored the deep divisions the health care reform debate is causing in the ranks of the Democratic Party.

    Fiscally conservative Blue Dogs are holding up the bill in the House Energy and Commerce Committee over cost concerns and other issues. But Chairman Henry Waxman, D-Calif., on Friday accused those Democrats of empowering Republicans.

    “I won’t allow them to turn over control of the committee to the Republicans,” Waxman said, threatening to bypass the committee process.

    “I don’t see what alternative we have,” Waxman said of talks that have raged for days with the Blue Dogs. “This can’t be an interminable discussion.”

    The radical move would mean Waxman would finish writing the bill in private and merge it with the two bills that have already passed out of the committee in the chamber before bringing it to the floor.

    But such a move wouldn’t necessarily serve Democratic leadership any good.

    Nearly all 52 Blue Dogs are expected to vote against the health bill if it hits the House floor in its current form. That spells doom for the measure when coupled with unanimous Republican opposition.

    Moreover, senior Blue Dog sources tell FOX News that bypassing the committee could only inflame the situation further.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has heard complaints in stereo from the liberal and conservative wings of her caucus. The Blue Dogs are giving her an earful with their grievances. But Friday, Pelosi met with the liberal Congressional Black Caucus, which implored the speaker not to cave in to the Blue Dog demands.

    The House Energy and Commerce Committee is the only House panel yet to vote on the legislation — the Education and Labor Committee and the Ways and Means Committee have approved their versions.

    On Friday, multiple sources with the Blue Dogs told FOX News that they still don’t have an agreement with the White House and Democratic leaders.

    But Pelosi has said she’s “confident” she has the votes and that she wants to bring the bill to a floor vote next week.

She is not to be Speaker for All Americans, she is only exists to spew out words of a winning-nature whether true or not. She mainly believes by saying what she hopes to happen, as though it will, it will come true.

    The real reason Obama slamed the police is because the police supported Mccain in the last election. Check out this article.

    Police, White House exchange barbs
    The controversy over the arrest of Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. escalated Friday, as Cambridge, Mass., police union officials called on President Obama to apologize for his criticism of the arresting officers and the White House moved to blunt criticism of the president’s remarks.

    At a press conference in Cambridge with Sergeant James M. Crowley, the officer who arrested Gates, union leaders said Obama and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick had both gone after Cambridge officers’ performance without having full information about the incident involving Gates.

    Steve Killian, the president of the Cambridge Police Patrol Officers Association took exception to the president’s charge that Cambridge police handled the incident “stupidly.”

    “Cambridge police are not stupid. I am proud to represent the officers of the Cambridge Police Department,” Killian said. “I think the president should make an apology to all law enforcement personnel throughout the entire country.”

    Earlier in the day, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dismissed a suggestion that the backlash from police groups could be distressing to the White House, given that Obama has enjoyed a positive relationship with the law enforcement community.

    “I think the Fraternal Order of Police endorsed McCain,” Gibbs fired back, referring to Obama’s Republican opponent in the 2008 election. “If I’m not mistaken.”

    When a reporter pointed out that Obama had won the support of the Policemen’s Benevolent Association, Gibbs conceded: “We got some.”

    In Cambridge, however, even the more measured speakers were sharply critical of the president’s comments this week.

    Alan J. McDonald, an attorney for the police unions, stopped short of calling for an apology, but said he was hopeful both the president and Patrick would issue one.

    “We’re not demanding an apology from anyone…hopeful that upon reflection, they will realize that their statements were misguided and will take the appropriate action in the form of an apology,” McDonald said.

    “In our view there was nothing stupid about what happened,” he continued. “The president suggested that somehow there was a link between problems between people of color and law enforcement…it wasn’t true in this case. There is no evidence that the arrest was race-based.”

    Participating in the news conference were Killian; Dennis O’Connor, president of the Cambridge Police Superior Officers Association, and Harold MacGilvray, president of the Massachusetts Municipal Police Coalition.

    Crowley was present but did not speak.

    The White House did not offer an immediate comment in response to the news conference, but the topic is expected to come up at Gibbs’s on-camera briefing Friday afternoon.

    And, white folks are rip shit when a Gates pulls a Race Card Tantrum to throw their weight around… and for Obama to gang up in like fashion… he forgets the size of the megaphone his office carries… and Obama has had this push back coming for a long time.

    And anyone who says it was good this happened is an idiot, in my view. This kind of crap hurts people… and Gates was in control… the officer had to go by protocol and he was spot on.

    McCain Lawyers Investigated Obama Citizenship
    As we asked earlier this week, if questions over President Obama’s citizenship were valid, wouldn’t they have come out during the presidential campaign?

    David Weigel talked with Trevor Potter and other lawyers for Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign who said that they did look into the Obama citizenship rumors and found them without merit.

    Said Potter: “To the extent that we could, we looked into the substantive side of these allegations. We never saw any evidence that then-Senator Obama had been born outside of the United States. We saw rumors, but nothing that could be sourced to evidence. There were no statements and no documents that suggested he was born somewhere else. On the other side, there was proof that he was born in Hawaii. There was a certificate issued by the state’s Department of Health, and the responsible official in the state saying that he had personally seen the original certificate. There was a birth announcement in the Honolulu Advertiser, which would be very difficult to invent or plant 47 years in advance.”

    Perry raises possibility of states’ rights showdown with White House over healthcare

    By DAVE MONTGOMERYdmontgomery@star-D.C.

    Perry warns of showdown with Washington on…
    (2009-07-23)

    AUSTIN — Gov. Rick Perry, raising the specter of a showdown with the Obama administration, suggested Thursday that he would consider invoking states’ rights protections under the 10th Amendment to resist the president’s healthcare plan, which he said would be “disastrous” for Texas.

    Interviewed by conservative talk show host Mark Davis of Dallas’ WBAP/820 AM, Perry said his first hope is that Congress will defeat the plan, which both Perry and Davis described as “Obama Care.” But should it pass, Perry predicted that Texas and a “number” of states might resist the federal health mandate.

    “I think you’ll hear states and governors standing up and saying ‘no’ to this type of encroachment on the states with their healthcare,” Perry said. “So my hope is that we never have to have that stand-up. But I’m certainly willing and ready for the fight if this administration continues to try to force their very expansive government philosophy down our collective throats.”

    Perry, the state’s longest-serving governor, has made defiance of Washington a hallmark of his state administration as well as his emerging re-election campaign against U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison in the 2010 Republican primary. Earlier this year, Perry refused $555 million in federal unemployment stimulus money, saying it would subject Texas to long-term costs after the federal dollars ended.

    Interviewed after returning from a trip to Iraq and Afghanistan, Perry spoke out against President Barack Obama’s healthcare package less than 24 hours after the president used a prime-time news conference Wednesday night to try to sell the massive legislative package to Congress and the public.

    ‘Not the solution’

    “It really is a state issue, and if there was ever an argument for the 10th Amendment and for letting the states find a solution to their problems, this may be at the top of the class,” Perry said. “A government-run healthcare system is financially unstable. It’s not the solution.”

    Perry heartily backed an unsuccessful resolution in this year’s legislative session that would have affirmed the belief that Texas has sovereignty under the 10th Amendment over all powers not otherwise granted to the federal government.

    In expressing “unwavering support” for the 10th Amendment resolution by state Rep. Brandon Creighton, R-Conroe, Perry said “federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens and its interference with the affairs of our state.”

    Returning to the “letter and spirit” of the 10th Amendment, he said in April, “will free our state from undue regulations and ultimately strengthen our union.”

    Perry, in his on-air interview Thursday with Davis, did not specify how he might use the 10th Amendment in opposing the Obama health plan. His spokeswoman, Allison Castle, said that the governor’s first goal is to defeat the plan in Congress and that any discussion of options beyond that would be “hypothetical.”

    “I don’t think it’s surprising that the governor is taking a stand against it,” said Anne Dunkelberg, associate director of the Center for Public Policy Priorities, an Austin-based research organization that supports the House version of Obama’s plan. “Unfortunately, the national dialogue on health reform has been extraordinarily partisan and polarized.”

    The White House Media Affairs Office, asked to comment on Perry’s statements, did not have an immediate response. In his remarks to the nation Wednesday, Obama restated his midsummer deadline for passage of the bill in Congress, saying it is urgently needed to help families “that are being clobbered by healthcare costs.”

    Some other news.

    Lennon song from the grave?

    A new JOHN LENNON song could be published from beyond the grave – 30 years after his death.
    The lyrics to the song Tell Her Now were penned by the murdered Beatle in the 1960s, but no music was ever written to go with them.

    Now it has been revealed his son JULIAN is working on a project to write music for the song and to publish it.

    The lyrics are part of a private collection which Julian accquired after his father was killed on December 8 1980.

    The song consists of two verses and a chorus:

    “Little girl I’ve come to stay

    “And this time I just have to say

    “I love you

    “If she turns you down and you’re rejected

    “Try again the best you can

    “Call to see her when you’re least expected

    “Tell her now she’ll understand.”

    Julian said: “I don’t believe the lyrics have been used anywhere.

    “If the time was right, if it felt right, then I would consider looking at the lyrics and maybe trying to work with them and write something.

    “But obviously only in honour of Dad. I guess in some respect it would be like coming home.”

    It is not known exactly when John penned the lyrics.

    However if they date from 1966 the girl he speaks of could be YOKO ONO as John met her for the first time in November that year.

    The lyrics are on display at the Beatles Story in Liverpool as part of a new exhibition, White Feather: The Spirit of Lennon.

  112. samhenry says:

    Perry’s remarks, Tellit, are a comfort. Love hearing about the Lennon lyrics that will come alive.

  113. tellitlikeitis says:

    SH, I can’t wait for Julian to complete and record the song. He sounds just like his father when he sings. It will almost be spooky and be as if you are really hearing JL’s voice from the grave.

  114. samhenry says:

    Tellit – I didn’t realize how close to the “original” Julian sounded. I always thought he was a good kid.

    Racial Overtones Rear Ugly Head In Democrats Inparty Fighting With Blue Dog Democrats Over Health Care

    The Centrist is reading where factions of the Democrats have restorted to racial invectives amongs themselves in the Health Care Reform battle. I read this quote from a story in the great NYT:

    “Racial overtones also appeared to creep into the intraparty dispute. One African-American Democrat pointed out that the seven Blue Dogs who were holding up the bill in the Energy and Commerce Committee were “a nondiverse group” of white men.” (end quote)

    The Centrist wonders where all the abuse against the Blue Dog Democrats will end. Also, why is it permissable anywhere for our elected officials to hurl racial epitats and get a pass from the media?

    If everyone, including Beck,Coulter, and Gates would quit trying to calibrate who is racist and who is not, we’d all be better off. There is but one person who ever walked the earth that had no prejudice about others. We can only strive to meet that standard and let our actions lead others.

    This beer-fest deal is another public narcissistic display of scripted-race relations that ostensibly is being held to give we bigoted peons a teachable moment from a teacher and a professor who were the parties that displayed the racism.

    While the economy burns, N. Korea and Iran are working overtime building nukes, and terrorists are plotting, the leader of the free world is having the professor and the policeman up to the White House for a beer or two and a group hug.

    The president is doing his keg party at the White House today as a public relations ploy to make white independents and southern Democrats voters forget that the president,without the benefit of the facts, immediately chose sides with a minority professor, who was arrested after causing a public commotion with a Cambridge, Mass., police officer. The professor is perceived by much of the public to have played the race card and to have intentionally caused a commotion with law enforcement to improve his street creds.

    The president, thinking that the get-together might be too small to send the right message, will expand the guest list so that he can legitimately call the beer-fest a summit to improve race relations.

    Overnight invitations went out from the White House yesterday to Al Sharpton, Don Imus, Michael Richards aka Kramer of Seinfeld, Rodney King, Tommy Hilfinger, Prince Harry, the most honorable Louis Farrackan, the president of Denny’s Restaurant, Tavis Smiley, former senator George Allen, and Tawana Brawley to bolster the creditability of the summit.

    Meanwhile, Lucia Whalen, the 911 caller, tearfully stood before the cameras with her lawyer to say that she had been called a racist, because of the false report that said that she had called the police and reported that two black me were breaking in Gates’ home. The White House is considering sending out two more invitations, one for the caller and one for her lawyer.

    The three Harvard University police officers who showed up as Gates was coming to the porch say that they too had their racial sensitivities offended. One is white and one is black and one is hispanic. Their Asian attorney says that all having having trouble sleeping since the incident, claiming that the entire racial thing is unconscionable. The White House confirmed that all have been contacted-three will come and one will be writing his memoirs, and cannot come.

    The president, the policeman, and the professor will lead the singing of, “We Are Fam-i-ly” at the end of the summit after the closing remarks by Senator Robert Byrd.
