Of course Brother X would find a way to blame Bush or "the white man" for this.

Ralph Nader: Breaking With Obama?

"Of all the loyalists, among the first to stray was Bob Herbert, columnist for The New York Times. He wondered about his friends telling him that Obama treats their causes and them 'as if they have nowhere to go.' Then there was the stalwart Obamaist, the brainy Gary Wills, who broke with Obama over Afghanistan in a stern essay of admonition.

"If you read the biweekly compilation of progressive and liberal columnists and pundits in The Progressive Populist, one of my favorite publications, the velvet verbal gloves are coming off.

"Jim Hightower writes that 'Obama is sinking us into "Absurdistan."' He bewails: 'I had hoped Obama might be a more forceful leader who would reject the same old interventionist mindset of those who profit from permanent war. But his newly announced Afghan policy shows he is not that leader.'

"Wonder where good ol’ Jim got that impression—certainly not from anything Obama said or did not say in 2008. But hope dims the memory of the awful truth which is that Obama signed on to the Wall Street and military-industrial complex from the getgo. He got their message and is going after their campaign contributions and advisors big time!

"Norman Solomon, expressed his sharp deviation from his long-time admiration of the politician from Chicago. He writes: 'President Obama accepted the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize while delivering—to the world as it is—a pro-war speech. The context instantly turned the speech’s insights into flackery for more war.' Strong words indeed!

"Arianna Huffington has broken in installments. But her disillusionment is expanding. She writes: 'Obama isn’t distancing himself from "the Left" with his decision to escalate this deepening disaster [in Afghanistan]. He’s distancing himself from the national interests of the country.'

"John R. MacArthur, publisher of Harper’s Magazine, was never an Obama fan and has been upset with what he calls 'the liberal adoration of Obama.' In a piece for the Providence Journal, he cites some writers still loyal to Obama, such as Frank Rich of The New York Times, Hendrick Hertzberg of The New Yorker, and Tom Hayden, who are showing mild discomfort in the midst of retained hope over Obama’s coming months. They have not yet cut their ties to the masterspeaker of 'Hope and Change.'

"Gary Wills has crossed his Rubicon, calling Obama’s Afghanistan escalation 'a betrayal.' Wills is a scholar of both the Presidency and of political oratory (his small book on Lincoln’s Gettysburg address is a classic interpretation). So he uses words carefully, to wit: 'If we had wanted Bush’s wars, and contractors, and corruption, we could have voted for John McCain. At least we would have seen our foe facing us, not felt him at our back, as now we do.'

"Rest assured the liberal-progressive commentariat has another two years to engage in challenge and chagrin. For in 2012, silence will mute their criticisms as the stark choices of the two-party tyranny come into view and incarcerate their minds into the least-worst voting syndrome (just as they have done in recent Presidential election years)."

Global Warming ALERT: British Experts Predicting Coldest Winter in 100 Years

"Word to the British, you better buy a new winter coat. Experts are predicting that this will be one of the coldest winters in the past 100 years. This kind of weather was predicted by scientist, Mojib Latif who back in September predicted that earth was going to cool off for the next 20-30 years. Latif said the cooling would be the result of changes to ocean currents and temperatures in the North Atlantic, a feature known as the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) and the NAO may be partly the cause of warming during the past 30 years."

Political Hubris: Democrats Blame Pollster Rasmussen For Voters Rejection of Their Agenda

"After all no sane human being could have a poor opinion of President Obama and his policies. This is Political Hubris at its worst. The Democrats refuse to admit that the US remains a center-right country, and the POTUS and his friends are ruling from the far left. Its much easier to blame the pollster than listen to the voters."

My Dog Fritz

My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day. He has his food prepared for him. He can eat whenever he wants, 24/7/365. His meals are provided at no cost to him. He visits the Dr. once a year for his checkup, and again during the year if any medical needs arise. For this He pays nothing and nothing is required of him. He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than He needs, but He is not required to do any upkeep. If He makes a mess, someone else cleans it up. He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep. He receives these accommodations absolutely free. He is living like a king, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever. All of his costs are picked up by others who go out and earn a living every day. I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head, (deleted), my dog is a democrat!!
