Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Memorial Disservice

The video of President Barack Hussein Obama’s address to the memorial in Tucson at the White House Blog, as is the transcript.   As usual, I will expose the lowlights.

” It raises a question of what, beyond prayers and expressions of concern, is required of us going forward.  How can we honor the fallen?  How can we be true to their memory?”

The honest answer to that question is to press on with our lives, as the victims and heroes would be doing if the event had not occurred.  But the question is superfluous, propounded for partisan political purposes.  Its purpose is to lay the groundwork for renewed attacks upon the first and second amendments.

“Already we’ve seen a national conversation commence, not only about the motivations behind these killings, but about everything from the merits of gun safety laws to the adequacy of our mental health system. “

The mainstream of the ‘national conversation’ flows from the mouths of politicians & pundits, falsely laying blame for the massacre at the tongues of those who oppose President Obama’s Socialist agenda.  Despite the mounting evidence that the shooter has used drugs, aroused fear among his classmates & teachers and was mentally ill, President Obama’s chorus assigns blame to Palin & Limbaugh, who had nothing to do with the event.

“But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized -– at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who happen to think differently than we do -– it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we’re talking with each other in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds.  (Applause.)”


  • ‘If They Bring a Knife to the Fight, We Bring a Gun”
  • ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies‘.
  • “Bitter clingers”

Rush Limbaugh had an excellent rant about the hypocrisy of the left’s demand for ‘civility’.

“We should be willing to challenge old assumptions in order to lessen the prospects of such violence in the future.”

Ever so subtle yet so obvious!  President Obama hinted at a renewed demand to disarm the citizenry, rendering us defenseless.  Does anyone else remember the old comic strip “There Oughta Be a Law?

“But what we cannot do is use this tragedy as one more occasion to turn on each other.”

Perish the thought!  That is exactly what they have done, shrill & loudly, starting with Krugman.

“If this tragedy prompts reflection and debate — as it should — let’s make sure it’s worthy of those we have lost.  (Applause.)  Let’s make sure it’s not on the usual plane of politics and point-scoring and pettiness that drifts away in the next news cycle.”

That is sheer hypocrisy, so obvious as to require no elaboration.

“And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their death helps usher in more civility in our public discourse, let us remember it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy — it did not — but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to the challenges of our nation in a way that would make them proud. “

What was it Nancy Pelosi promised us about four years back?  What did she deliver?  Open, honest, accountable & efficient government.  Yeah, right.  And Obama promised hope & change.  How well is that working out for you?   “You can keep your doctor.”  “You can keep your insurance policy.” “It won’t raise the deficit.” “No death panels.”  Honest & civil! I really need to use profanity at this point.  Those are not white lies, they are not little brown lies; they are the stuff that makes your shoe stink even after you scrape it off the sole.

“I want to live up to her expectations.  (Applause.)  I want our democracy to be as good as Christina imagined it.  I want America to be as good as she imagined it.  (Applause.)  All of us -– we should do everything we can to make sure this country lives up to our children’s expectations.  (Applause.)”

Even coming from an honest statesman, those statements would be inappropriate at a memorial service for murder victims.  They are the stuff of a campaign speech, not a memorial.  As it is, they come from the mouth of a lying, conniving traitor, and the hypocrisy disgusts me intensely.

President Obama and his cronies seek to exploit a mass murder at once to condemn and silence his critics.  There is nothing so low that they will not limbo dance beneath it.  What appears to be a limbo dance is really a slithering sidewinder.     We made a horrific blunder in ’08. We have a opportunity to correct it in ’12.  We must take full advantage of that chance.
