Top Jobs for Obama Financial Supporters

Though I’m not surprised and consider this tit-for-tat arrangement to be as old as America herself (as is the obvious hypocrisy involved), I present this article to you in a spirit of keeping a squinty and dissenting eye upon the inhabitants of the White House, no matter their party:

Spoils Of Victory: Obama Financial Suporters Get Top Jobs

By Fred Schulte, John Aloysius Farrell and Jeremy Borden

More than two years after President Obama took office vowing to banish “special interests” from his administration, nearly 200 of his biggest donors have landed plum government jobs and advisory posts, won federal contracts worth millions of dollars for their business interests.

As they say, old boss same as the new!

George Bush has ‘self-awareness of a bison’

With former cheerleader and bullhorn handler George W. Bush appearing everywhere these days to promote his rewrite-history book, there are some folk who feel sorry for his dim-wittedness and lack of self-awareness.

Matthew Norman’s How Did This Wastrel Ever Find His Way to the White House? has an interesting point of view.

My own p.o.v. on Dubya is not as generous since Bush, a cog in the Bush Dynastry syndicate, was installed in the White House by a complicit Supreme Court and served at the behest and enabling of the global power elite who used him for 8 years as a “propaganda catapulter”, as Bush described himself while in office.

If he hadn’t pleased them by making ‘decisions’ with few, if any, known facts and by his actions, he would have somehow been de-presidented with a newer, more accomodating model put in place.

In his interview with Matt Lauer, I did hear Bush admit to remembering that the financial crash and TARP both occurred under his watch. I see Financial Collapse 2008 as a crescendo at the end of the Bush Years of Wastrelhood, don’t you?

Newt Gingrich: no lapdance a 2nd time

As a Georgia native, I am always quick to point out that Newt Gingrich isn’t ~really~ a Georgia native and with this jaw-dropper news tidbit, he’s done nothing but continue to live down to my usual expectations of him.

The affair may be completely innocent but it looks awfully odd to me. See what you think.

Palin knocks Alaska snow off boots 7.26.09

If you care a wit about Sarah Palin leaving office today, click to read an eye witness account published by The Washington Independent.

And here’s a Republican view that Sarah Palin is another Huckabee, a reference to her political prospects, one may assume.

Cindy Sheehan calls out Obama

Obama, More Polished Than the Last Puppet

By Cindy Sheehan

Okay, so the United States of America has had a new puppet regime for six months now. I was never so much into giving Obama a “chance” and I think it’s way past time to call Obama and his supporters out, like we called Bush and his supporters out. Our Presidents are merely puppets for the Robber Class and Obama is no exception. #

You know that’s basically what I’ve been saying: Barack Obama is in the pocket of the monied class otherwise, he’d never have scored a term in the Oval Office!

Wonder if she means, Robber ‘Baron’ class?

Well, it’s all political theater, after all, and I tend to call them ‘political thespians’ – it’s the invisible government’s aims and plans that run the show.

Huckabee on Palin’s cut and run

Is it even possible to be “hounded from an opportunity”?

I’ve heard of losing them, or of having them pass by, fall through, or lead to nought, but “hounded from”??

There is a hound barking in this bizarre story but it isn’t Palin’s opportunity.

And I think this is where President Harry Truman sits up and says, “If you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen.”

Astrology notes on Governor Sanford

Here’s an excellently informative post with Astrology details on Gov. Mark Sanford if you’d like a wider view of the fellow who was a big Impeachment Freak against President Clinton for much the same sort of shenanigans he’s indulged in himself, as it awkwardly turns out.


Update July 3, 2009:

i have received a message asking if i’ll be posting on Sanford’s chart myself and the short answer is: not if i can help it.

Others subjects are higher on my posting agenda but that’s only part of the reason, the other being that whenever Washington politicians make a big deal out of a sex scandal – as with Clinton – i always ask myself what they’re diverting attention from in another direction for there must be Something important we Should Be Paying Attention To that they may be actively veiling from our gazes. (Timing is often a clue.)

So j’refuse to rubberneck their hypocrisies in the ‘hot romance’ department – how very very boring. jc

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
