Dissent is Only Patriotic....

....when Liberals are out of power. Funny, during 8 years of Bush it was "Dissent is Patriotic." Now that Liberals control the White House and Congress that has changed to "Dissent Aids Terrorism"

"Politically motivated criticism and unfounded fear-mongering only serve the goals of al-Qaeda."

-John Brennan - Deputy National Security Advisor

Funny, during the campaign any criticism of Obama was deemed "racist," Now that he's President he can pull the "terrorism card" and keep the well-worn race card in his hip pocket as backup. I'm guessing Brennan's statement only applies to politically motivated criticism levied at the Obama Administration, but not criticism and fearmongering promulgated by the administration itself.

In other news, since when does Sarah Palin writing notes on her hand qualify as news? Obama reads from a fucking teleprompter, yet somehow CNN devotes an entire segment to Palin's hand notes.

Thank you...I am so sick of hearing about the notes on her hand. She won't catch a break because she's female and the media took a dislike to her right away! Once the media decides to prey on someone it's all over. They've been pro-Obama all along.

The irony is in the Obama administration saying the same things the Bush administration did. Do you object to the idea or to who is using the idea? Who objects to the statement now that that agreed with it before?

Notes on Palin's hand is news because she's

a.) a professional speaker, being paid a reported $100,000, and

b.) attempting to influence national politics.

I speak to groups, and referring to notes written on my hand is considered unprofessional. Someone doing that on a national stage is an embarrassment.

And your point is? Much of what Obama says on the "national stage" is an outright embarrasment. Biden? The guy is a fucking gaffe machine. Bush? Definitely a national embarrassment, as he's one of the worst public speakers I've ever seen.

The media made a big deal of Palin's hand thing because they hate her. That's the only reason, and if anything I think the national news media's reporting of it is the true "national embarrassment."
