Perlcat rants: The New York Times thinks Barry is becoming Jimmy

by editor on August 9, 2011

Frequent IHateTheMedia.com commenter and occasional contributor Perlcat once again hops up on his soapbox and vents his spleen:

I just ran across a fascinating donk article in the New York Times that seemed worried about Barry becoming the new Jimmy.

No shit, Sherlock, in so many ways. There are just so very many great lines in this article:

What you see is what you get: Barry has become Jimmy

Democratic lawmakers worry that the Tea Party freshmen have already ‘neutered’ the president, as one told me.

No, Moochelle already did that.

They fret that Obama is an inept negotiator.

Howling with laughter, that’s me!

More and more, 2008 looks like the tulip mania.

She means the “tulip mania” that left Holland devastated, not the nasty place Barry put his two lips on that trip.

They yearned to see the president beat the political suicide bombers over the head with the Constitution.

That would be the only possible use the “constitutional lawyer” has for it. He certainly hasn’t made himself familiar with its contents.

These paragraphs delight me:

Consider what the towel-snapping Tea Party crazies have already accomplished. They’ve changed the entire discussion. They’ve neutralized the White House. They’ve whipped their leadership into submission.

They’ve taken taxes and revenues off the table. They’ve withered the stock and bond markets. They’ve made journalists speak to them as though they’re John Calhoun and Alexander Hamilton.

Obama and John Boehner have been completely outplayed by the “hobbits,” as The Wall Street Journal and John McCain called them.

I especially love the last paragraph of the article:

What if this is all a cruel joke on us? What if the people who hate government are good at it and the people who love government are bad at it?

The essence of good government is summed up by one of their own, Thoreau: “That government is best which governs least.” So, yes, by that definition, the TEA party members are the ones best at government.

No shit, Sherlock. I never thought I’d ever read a Dowd column that wasn’t fit only to wipe my a** with.

Blind sow, meet ACORN.

Sounds like she has finally figured out why the Tea party is so successful, it actually ACCOMPLISHES what it sets out to do, instead of making empty promises that “Change” and deals that they “Hope” for.

The Tea Party has “taken revenues off the table”?

Wrong. If Washington follows our prescription for economic prosperity, revenues will sky-rocket. Apparently liberals think if we don’t agree to kill the goose to get to the golden egg, we must not like golden eggs.

Okay this is the thing… why are liberals (especially women) always shocked when a liberal male does not deliver?

Maybe they forgot that it has been their lifes work to neuter men!

Okay this is the thing… why are liberals (especially women) always shocked when a liberal male does not deliver? They were expecting him to be another Clinton… why? At least Clinton was a governor before taking the job. Why do liberals expect gold out of mediocrity? It is just too weird.

I like what somebody said about liberal causes a long time ago — “Liberals have many tails to chase, and they have to chase them all.”

This pinhead is the culmination of multiple incompatible tails that have been chased. In order to get him into office, they have to ignore minor deficiencies, like sheer incompetence, and an agenda hostile to the entire nation.

Another semi-coherent MoDo column, reads like it was written after a three martini lunch.

…maybe four.

perlcat August 11, 2011 at 7:03 pm

Maybe the semi coherent columns she writes are her mating call — more difficult to do than to say “I’m so drunk I no longer cannot tell right from wrong.”, but who am I to judge?

Is anyone truly surprised that a man who did nothing after graduating law school except “community organize” and who authored nothing and hardly voted after becoming a U.S. Senator is an utter DISASTER as President??

I was skeptical about him during the campaign, couldn’t not bring myself to vote on his flimsy Hope/Change platform, resigned myself to his victory, rooted for the OFFICE of the President to actually accomplish something…have watched with growing disillusionment as the Socialist-in-Chief has filled his administration with people who ardently want to ALTER the FUNDAMENTAL make-up of this COUNTRY.

Surprised that the U.S. is going down the tubes on Obama’s watch?? Not at all, and not gleeful or boastful or I-told-ya-so about it either. I’m F*@$*!G PISSED.

You know something hilarious about being called a hobbit??? The Hobbits were the GOOD GUYS! So what does that make Harry Reid, The Weaker Pelosi, and Obama? Are they the Orcs? I think that is the only part they are qualified to play… Mindless heathens who only follow orders to push chaos and commit evil.

“Lead, follow, or get out of the way.”

Politicians and Presidents egos make them select “lead” and reject “follow.” The real solution is to “get out of the way;” make government smaller and less intrusive. Reagan knew this. Obama doesn’t have a clue.

The real solution is to “get out of the way;” make government smaller and less intrusive. Reagan knew this.

True, but even Reagan with his popularity couldn’t make the kind of cuts he wanted in government. What the solution is, I agree with Perlcat, may be what is brewing with the Tea Party. An overpowering grass roots movement of “We The People” that makes Washington stand up and take notice. I see terror in the eyes of the left, that’s why they call the Tea Party terrorist. They are scared to death of what the Tea Party represent, “make government smaller and less intrusive.” The left knows, without big government and it’s power, they will not be able to accomplish their dream of a socialist society.

“That government is best which governs least.”
“So, yes, by that definition, the TEA party members are the ones best at government.”

Phrases worth repeating over and over by more and more Americans.

Looks like NYT maybe, just maybe, is begining to realize that their “chosen one” is really a chosen dope.
