Bloviating Zeppelin: One Down; Obama's Target-Rich Nominee Environment

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

One Down; Obama's Target-Rich Nominee Environment

Van Jones: down for the count. Resigned.

Why?

Conservative bloggers. Like me. Like many of my readers. Who dared, who had the temerity to pose actual questions -- much less fluffy little softballs -- where "real journalists" lacked the testicles to tread. Lest they, the DEM/MSM (horrors!) be in conflict with Our Hero.

From Politico.com:

(The resignation of Van Jones) confirmed that the real opposition party to Obama right now is the conservative grassroots that draws its energy from Fox News, talk radio and the Drudge Report, and often leaves Republican elected officials scrambling to catch up.

Quite absolutely correct. The GOP has certainly done nothing. Who managed to bring up the facts about ObamaKare -- and derail any pure version? Conservatives and bloggers.

The Demorats just don't have the votes to push the House ObamaKare bill, HR3200.

Who managed to bring up the facts about Van Jones -- and acquire his resignation? Conservatives and bloggers.

Which Obama Payback Nomination is next up to bat -- as a nod to support from animal rights groups?

Why, that could be Mr Obama's pick to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, a Mr Cass Sunstein.

This, by the way, is a man who believes animals should "be granted the opportunity to sue with human representation in a court of law."



Mr Obama's problems lie not with Republicans, who are predominantly absent in both substance and style, but with fellow Demorats.

In the meantime, Our Hero's negative ratings continue to rise. Even Camille Paglia in Salon.com asks if it's too late for Mr Obama to turn things around.

As Dennis Prager logically writes: "the bigger the government, the smaller the individual."

I only ask: please keep it up, Mr Obama. Your nominations, your policies, your proposed bills create nothing but a veritable Target Rich Environment for myself and fellow Conservatives.

You have not the first clue. You are remarkably tone deaf. Thankfully.

To have our Reagan, we had to have our Carter.

To have a groundswell Revolution, we had to have our Obama.

I'm not sure that's on the horizon.

Nor do I think she's willing to be sacrificed and burned at the stake to God.

check out the article that arianna huffington wrote on her site about the resignation and beck....

it's funny, but in her article and all the comments, everyone defends van jones for being such a terrific guy - an environmental genius...

but when they're asked to provide anything that mr jones has accomplished they all go silent...they come back and call folks names and tell them how uneducated they are for even criticising someone like jones...

same thing that happens when you ask anything about obama's previous accomplishments....(of which i'm now convinced there are none)

BZ. Love your site as always, but this moron that pops up like a bad case of crabs has got to go. I love a friendly debate, except when the "wait, wait don't tell me" crowd from NPR sucks. Have u ever noticed dems have put more amendments than anyone? Except the founding fathers. This jack off needs some direction.

And STOP with that "Petreus, Joe Scarborough" ticket that's rumored about for 9012...ARE YOU NUTS?

This is a target rich environment, up and down the line with John Holdren being at the top top of the list with the Ehrlich-mantra of way too many people on planet Earth and 'someone' will need to review just who lives and who dies. Sunstein falls a bit further down the list, but his anti-2nd Amendment mantra is gaining him no friends as the Nation now turns against more gun laws.

What this gets to is the vetting process, or lack thereof, by Rahm Emmanuel, Valerie Jarrett and crew: they aren't having applicants fill out their sixty something vetting paperwork just to have that on file at the White House, itself... this all points to the lack of accountability of 'Czars': if they are personal advisors they need full background checks just for security's sake and if they go on the Federal payroll they are then civil servants at high level and need to go in front of the Senate.

The Left squawked about Bolton and Cheney's 'secret meetings' and when Obama does the same with Big Pharma and Insurance, appoints large numbers of unaccountable Czars and then puts people with very strange ideas in their past that they have not stepped away from... if the Left can't criticize Obama over those exact, same abuses save that they are done to a far greater extent than any previous administration, then those Leftist critics can go to hell. Put up and decry the same thing by one of your own or be shown as hypocrites to your purported beliefs and using any ends to justify the means of getting there. Does the Left actually believe in their talking points on Iraq, Afghanistan, government corruption, over spending, the deficit, the debt... and the answer is 'that X did this first' doesn't wash if you want to CHANGE the system for the BETTER not the WORSE which is going on right now.

And that is the very reason I have not made comments here in a while...

Free Speech is one thing, allowing anonymous trolls to crap on your rug is a whole different matter...

BZ is a really smart guy, and I know he wants to be fair, but once in a while you just have to make it clear, the SHIT has got to go...

I love this blog, but if BZ allows this stuff to happen, it only hurts HIS blog, good comment makers stay away...

OK, I know I'm probably going to regret asking this, but what the hell, if ya don't ask, you never know...

How do you CHOCK a chicken??

chock
n.
1. A block or wedge placed under something else, such as a wheel, to keep it from moving.
2. Nautical A heavy fitting of metal or wood with two jaws curving inward, through which a rope or cable may be run.

tr.v. chocked, chockĀ·ing, chocks
1. To fit with or secure by a chock: The plane's wheels were chocked and chained down.
2. Nautical To place (a boat) on chocks.

Surely you, in all your brilliance, didn't mean to say CHOKE or possibly CHOKING did you?

Yeah Van Jones went Bye Bye...Love it, but he has really not gone anywhere, he's just moved out of the spot light.

Obama, Jarret and Emanual are as fuct up as a football bat. BUT what did we expect? We knew ACORN picked our president, We knew a racist socialist was their candidate that came from CHICAGO corruption...How can anyone be surprised at the level of shady politics going on now?

And to a few of your posters, one of them says four or five readers? Hell I post very rarely anymore but I come by and check on my friends from time to time....Fred has always had WAY more readers than most, and Ranando NEVER had more than 2 readers when he was at his best...and most of those were do to Fred anyway...So I think the comment was pretty pathetic.

It's your Blog BZ, allow what you want, kick the bastards out if you want, I'll still come by and say HI to a good friend...

All of these so-called "czars" need to be confirmed by the Senate, or their power seriously reigned in. When they go anything past being advisor to POTUS, they MUST be confirmed! What he is doing with this czar bullshit is, IMO, an impeachable offense and might even be an act of TREASON. He is after all, trying to overthrow the federalist form of government and our constitution as it was conceived. When we win back enough seats in 2010, we may see proceedings to get rid of this asshole!

NObama could make history twice, once for first black president, even though he wasn't, and second for being first black president to be IMPEACHED!!

Ranando: sorry, I'm done with those who simply call others stupid or Nazis on the blog. His last comment at least had a citation. Absent that, I'm not much interested. Arguments are one thing; name calling advances not much.
