WTW: Obama Uses The Word “Policy” In A Speech!


Morning, y’all, Jebediah Murphy here on another fine White Trash Wednesday with a bit of that truthiness stuff. And get aload of this truthiness!

The two winners in Wisconsin quickly set their sights on one another. McCain accused Obama of promising “no more than a holiday from history and a return to the false promises and failed policies of a tired philosophy that trusts in government more than people.” Obama responded in Houston, saying McCain “represents the policies of yesterday.”

A bit more detail on what the Rev. Obama articulated (he’s good at that, for a Black, according to Joe Biden)

He is a genuine American hero. But when he embraces George Bush’s failed economic policies, when he says that he is willing to send our troops into another 100 years of war in Iraq, then he represents the policies of yesterday. And we want to be the party of tomorrow. And I’m looking forward to having that debate with John McCain.

John McCain personally told me this is how he will respond today

Yes, I represent the policies of yesterday. Those policies are ones where the government doesn’t take so much of the money you work for. When crime was low. When families were important. When government was responsive and beholden to the people, rather then extremist special interests. When both sides of the political aisle liked America. We see that the wife of a man who wants to be President of the greatest country in the world has never been proud of her country till now, simply because of empty, vacuous hope. The party of tomorrow? We can add that to the already close to capacity rhetoric land fill that Barak has built.

The thing about Obama is not that he is devoid of ideas, he has them. What he is devoid of is plans to deal with his ideas, and experience. The overlying theme throughout his speech was that government will do everything. It will cover you. It will be Mommy and Daddy. Sounds like State-ism and, yup, fascism.

A few choice excerpts

  • We think that that child in rural east Texas, where there’s a low property tax base and they can’t afford to buy new textbooks or put into computers, that’s somebody else’s problem. (that happens in areas with high property tax, too, Barak. Rural east Texas, get ready for the feds to get in to the property tax business)
  •  I want our students learning art, and music, and science, and literature, and social studies. (how about learning reading, writing, and arithmetic first?)
  • So we’re going to provide a $4,000 tuition credit, every student, every year, but, students, you’re going to have to give back something in return. You’re going to have to participate in community service. You’re going to have to work in a homeless shelter, or a veteran’s home, or an underserved school, or join the Peace Corps. (hmmm, didn’t the Nazi’s and Soviets have programs like that, designed to indoctrinate people into the Party?)
  • My job will be to keep you safe. And I will not hesitate to strike against any who would do us harm. I will do whatever is required. (how? You’ve already joined the side that says the United States is the country who is causing harm. You’ve already joined the side that thinks we should never attack a dangerous country like Iran.)
  •  But I don’t want to just end the war; I want to end the mindset that got us into war. (just move along from 9/11, folks, nothing to see, no big deal. Besides, it was our fault, you know)
  • I want to end a politics based on fear that uses 9/11 as a way to scare up votes instead of a way to bring the country together against a common enemy. I want to rediscover the power of our diplomacy. (in other words, we should have talked more with the Taliban, and given Saddam another 12 or so years to continue what he was doing. Plus, we can find out what the USA has done wrong, and make radical Islamics love us)

Enough. One of the things missing from his speech was a discussionblurb on crime, which was probably wise, since Houston, where he made this speech was inundated with low life criminals from New Orleans. They brought their murder, rape, and other violent crime with them, which is a direct result of Liberal racial policies, ones like the Davis-Bacon Act, which drove rural blacks to the inner cities, as they were shut out, intentionally, of the jobs they had been doing by unions who did not want Blacks, purposefully.

As a sidebar, the most intelligent woman in the world was completely ignored by B. Hussein.

    Looks like Obama will be the next President of the United States of America.
    The Republicans will have a lot tougher time against Obama than Clinton.
    Teach The Davis Bacon Act was passed by a conservative Republican Congress and signed by a conservative Republican President
    Blacks have been one of the bases of the modern Democratic party. I do not think that African Americans agree with your political ideology, or your assumptions.

  2. Debbie says:

    Great roundup of Obama’s ideas. Promises are easy, but as you say plans are more difficult and seem to be missing.

  3. John, Hoover was Republican, but very much a progressive. However, the central point is still valid in what the law did. The Dems have used Blacks as base to pander too, and, sooner or later, they are going to realize that they no longer want to be the house, well, you know, for the Dem party, but want to succeed on their own merits, rather then being wards of the State.

    We’ll see what happens come november. Many on the left are starting to have buyers remorse, as they realize he really is an empty suit.

    Thank you, Debbie. There is so much in the speech, but, Obama reminds me of that IBM commercial where they are talking about their international business plan, and the guy says “do we have one?” Response: “it’s more of an outline.”

    “An outline?”

    “Well, more of a deck.”

    “Our business plan is just a deck?”

    Ironic Blackbeard that Keystone’s own, Mayor/Governor Mr. Ed Rendell,
    and former DNC Chairman in 2004, said three weeks ago that his ‘Brotherly Love’ Pennsylvanians wouldn’t VOTE for a black candidate? He compared Republican Lynn Swann to “I’m all ears Barack Hussein Obama” and that his blue staters wouldn’t support a black candidate at this time… So Rush Limbaugh was fired by ESPN for saying similar things abour Eagles QB Donovan McNabb? LOVE the fact the all inclusive and DIVERSE democrats are … racist after all!
    Guess it is in black & white in politics, eh?
