Igor- to the Laboratory

"Why did Nancy Pelosi sign two Certification of Nomination forms for Obama and Biden, one on August 28 and one on August 29, 2008, one day apart, leaving out on the second form the words "legally qualified to serve under under provisions of the United States Constitution. She entered the date the 28th on both, but the one is stamped the 29th." -- Chrissie wants to know.

Obama Hate

why does President Pantywaist
hate America so badly?

 Brit Gerald Warner in today's Telegraph does a job eschewed by the American press.  It merits, oh, say an eight paragraph teaser (8 of 8).
If al-Qaeda, the Taliban and the rest of the Looney Tunes brigade want to kick America to death, they had better move in quickly and grab a piece of the action before Barack Obama finishes the job himself. Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people - not even Jimmy Carter.

Obama’s problem is that he does not know who the enemy is. To him, the enemy does not squat in caves in Waziristan, clutching automatic weapons and reciting the more militant verses from the Koran: instead, it sits around at tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the US Constitution. Obama is not at war with terrorists, but with his Republican fellow citizens. He has never abandoned the campaign trail.

That is why he opened Pandora’s Box by publishing the Justice Department’s legal opinions on waterboarding and other hardline interrogation techniques. He cynically subordinated the national interest to his partisan desire to embarrass the Republicans. Then he had to rush to Langley, Virginia to try to reassure a demoralised CIA that had just discovered the President of the United States was an even more formidable foe than al-Qaeda.

“Don’t be discouraged by what’s happened the last few weeks,” he told intelligence officers. Is he kidding? Thanks to him, al-Qaeda knows the private interrogation techniques available to the US intelligence agencies and can train its operatives to withstand them - or would do so, if they had not already been outlawed.

So, next time a senior al-Qaeda hood is captured, all the CIA can do is ask him nicely if he would care to reveal when a major population centre is due to be hit by a terror spectacular, or which American city is about to be irradiated by a dirty bomb. Your view of this situation will be dictated by one simple criterion: whether or not you watched the people jumping from the twin towers.

Obama promised his CIA audience that nobody would be prosecuted for past actions. That has already been contradicted by leftist groups with a revanchist ambition to put Republicans, headed if possible by Condoleezza Rice, in the dock. Talk about playing party politics with national security. Martin Scheinin, the United Nations special investigator for human rights, claims that senior figures, including former vice president Dick Cheney, could face prosecution overseas. Ponder that - once you have got over the difficulty of locating the United Nations and human rights within the same dimension.

President Pantywaist Obama should have thought twice before sitting down to play poker with Dick Cheney. The former vice president believes documents have been selectively published and that releasing more will prove how effective the interrogation techniques were. Under Dubya’s administration, there was no further atrocity on American soil after 9/11.

President Pantywaist’s recent world tour, cosying up to all the bad guys, excited the ambitions of America’s enemies. Here, they realised, is a sucker they can really take to the cleaners. His only enemies are fellow Americans. Which prompts the question: why does President Pantywaist hate America so badly?

 [ Barack Obama and the CIA: why does President Pantywaist hate America so badly?]
I've but a single quibble.  Obama knows full well who the enemy is.  Americans.  He's doing exactly what his enablers got him elected to do. I can think of but one solution, alas. In the good way of course.

Terps v Cal Berkeley Commies

Remember Pearl Harbor!
Smash the Commies

The Terps open their 2009 football season tonight (10 PM EST -ESPN) on the road against 12th ranked Berkeley State.  It will be a slaughter I'm afraid; the line has the Commies by 22.  The only hope --  if Americans - you - pray.  Pray your asses off.  Ask that once again raw courage and spirit of the American fighting man, as in the early days after Pearl Harbor, are enough to hold off the hordes. That an indomitable spirit will give our young, untrained troops time to gird-up.  Because with the Terps's honor rides all hope of defeating Obama,  and the dark force that looms over us.  Say Amen. 

Here's a magic moment from last year for inspiration.
