Specter to Republicans: I’ll be a Pub if you do what I want, when I want it

Imagine if the Redskins drafted a WR who fancied himself a s5000029NYG. But he said “Ok, I’ll be a ‘Skin. But when the game is on the line, if you want to run it up the middle, and I want to you to pass to the WR, you have to do what I say. Either pass to me, as I say, or I will yell out to the other side and tell them what you are doing.  And I will help tackle the dumbshit who runs it up the middle, if possible. But hey, you  can’t do anything about it. I’m a Redskin, after all. I’m your wide receiver. I’m a Redskin. You can’t stop me. My name is Arlen Specter, WR out of Pennsylvania, class of __.  No, wait. I have no class.

Not sure even my wife or my son know this about me

When I was a kid, my nickname was “moot.” A couple of cousins still call me this, when I see them.  It’s a play on my first name, and I believe my father started it. No, I did not start fourchan, and no, I am not Time Magazines most influential person of the year.  But I  had the nickname first.

The next best thing to Arlen Specter dying

is having the gutless piece of shit officially join the Democrats.  The imagesdifference between him and Joe Lieberman is that Lieberman kept his principles and took his beating in the primaries like a man, then ran as an independent. Lieberman now sides mostly with the Democrats, because he is a natural Democrat on almost all issues except national security.  He has principles, and stuck to them.  Specter has no principles. When he saw he was going to get his ass handed to him in the primaries, for pure political expediency he suddenly changed into a Democrat. Why? Because Democrats will elect him Senator, and Republicans wouldn’t. Good riddance you piece of shit. It will be funny seeing how the Democrat partisans suddenly start saying nice things about a Republican Senator.

The Re-Distributor in Chief is stealing G.M. and giving it to his union thug buddies

The Obamanation Administration forced the old general manager tounion-thugs11 resign.  Now the new management team is trying to give ownership in the company to the union and to the government, and to screw the lenders who invested their money in General Motors.

This quote has it exactly right: “Calling the proposal ‘neither reasonable nor adequate,’ an ad hoc committee of GM bondholders said it believed ‘the offer to be a blatant disregard of fairness for the bondholders who have funded this company, and amounts to using taxpayer money to show political favouritism of one creditor over another’.”

This is Obama using our tax dollars to buy General Motors and give it to his supporters, the United Autoworkers’ Union.  The union was at least half the problem why G.M. is in this mess to start with–inept management being the other half. To reward the union for running this company into bankruptcy

Armchair Generalist, I got your ridiculous hypothetical right here

276813atoy-soldier-postersFor those who don’t get out much into the real world, but who like to pretend that they are knowledgable about how the world works:  Here is what Armchair Generalist, that guy who likes to play at war games, had to say on his pathetic little blog:

“And as for the ridiculous hypotheticals like ‘what if we had bin Laden and he knew where the terrorist nuclear bomb was hidden inside the United States,’ really, people who voice this as a serious argument ought to just be ridiculed.”

Well, here’s a quote from a guy who wasn’t just playing war games, he was fighting in the war on terror. 

“[F]ormer CIA Director (and Bill Clinton appointee) George Tenet writes in his memoir, “At the Center of the Storm,” about the CIA interrogation of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed:

“I believe none of these successes [in foiling terrorist plots] would have happened if we had had to treat KSM like a white-collar criminal — read him his Miranda rights and get him a lawyer who surely would have insisted his client simply shut up. In his initial interrogation by CIA officers, KSM was defiant. ‘I’ll talk to you guys,’ he said, ‘after I get to New York and see my lawyer.’ Apparently he thought he would be immediately shipped to the United States and indicted in the Southern District of New York. Had that happened, I am confident that we would have obtained none of the information he had in his head about imminent threats to the American people.”

“Mr. Tenet continues: “From our interrogation of KSM and other senior al Qaeda members . . . we learned many things — not just tactical information leading to the next capture. For example, more than 20 plots had been put in motion by al Qaeda against U.S. infrastructure targets, including communications nodes, nuclear power plants, dams, bridges and tunnels.'”

Who should be ridiculed? You can believe a pathetic little blogger who only plays at war games, or you can believe a guy who actually was in a position of authority over the interrogations. I know where my ridicule is going to be directed…

 

Whoa Nellie! Guess which liberal Pol made this statement regarding “torture” in 2004

I realize that where one stands on an issue sometimes depends upon thefoxholelogopolitics at the time. I KNOW many liberals believe that “torture” is a moral issue and that only people that they consider to be conservative kooks like me thought this way.

I think there are probably very few people in this [Congressional hearing] room or in America who would say that torture should never, ever be used, particularly if thousands of lives are at stake. Take the hypothetical: if we knew that there was a nuclear bomb hidden in an American city and we believe that some kind of torture, fairly severe maybe, would give us a chance of finding that bomb before it went off, my guess is most Americans and most Senators, maybe all, would do what you have to do. So it’s easy to sit back in the armchair and say that torture can never be used. But when you’re in the fox hole, it’s a very different deal. And I respect, I think we all respect the fact that the President’s in the fox-hole every day. So he can hardly be blamed for asking you, or his White House counsel or the Department of Defense, to figure out when it comes to torture, what the law allows and when the law allows it, and what there is permission to do.”  [Answer below the fold.] Continue reading
