We should only pick fair fights.

Posted by: Threadkiller | February 21, 2015 at 09:56 PM

TK, If you ever find yourself in a fair fight, you're doing it wrong.

GUS

The Washitting Post asked Scott Walker, if he thinks that Ofuktard is a Christian.
Scott Walker answered well.
I would have answered... "I am not running against Mr Obama. At this late stage of Mr.Obama's failed and lame duck Presidency, YOU THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA, should have VETTED and INVESTIGATED exactly WHO, Mr Obama is/was, and told your fact finding results to the AMERICAN PEOPLE."

Extraneus

The WaPo piece being featured at Drudge (Gov. Scott Walker: ‘I don’t know’ whether Obama is a Christian) was written

By Dan Balz and Robert Costa

Centralcal had Costa pegged quite a while ago.

GUS

Extraneus! I agree. What do you think about MY 1:46?? I know Scott Walker, and most of what you'll see and read. IS HIM.
He is for real, and the NUANCED LIBTARDS ........will not like Scott Walker.
He is as REAL as AMERICA gets. At least the America that I grew up in.

clarice

Hillary said she didn't know if Obama was a Christian either when she ran against him,,
Yesterday and today it is obvious the DNC has finally succeeded in occupying the QaPo.

Clarice, Great Pieces!

"Obama does not believe that the terrorists are the problem. He believes that we are the problem. His foreign policy is not about fighting Islamic terrorists. It is about destroying our power to stop them."

Best Summary of our current Foreign Policy!

Extraneus

Sorry I didn't see your post, GUS. I was just in for a quick strike.

Nice fact-based article, Clarice. And exdem gets a cameo!

clarice

Thanks.

clarice

"qaPo" should be WaPo..

Extraneus

Here's what she says now, Clarice:

Clinton Says Obama Muslim Rumor Not True “As Far As I Know”

(via Jake Tapper via Insty)

Extraneus

Ooops. That was from 2008. We already knew that.

Miss Marple

Morning, all!

Great Pieces, Clarice!

AliceH

Maybe Scott Walker should NOT run for President in 2016. He's just 47 years old. If he runs now and wins 2 terms, he'll be 58 with no where else to go as an elected office holder.

If he runs in 2016 as VP, though, that *could* give us 8 years of Walker as VP, and then 8 years as Pres. I like the idea of 16 years of Walker more than 8.

Of course plenty of risk involved in that "plan", but still. I'm just thinking out loud here.

clarice

I don't think VP is a great stepping stone, alice.

Miss Marple

AliceH

I don't think VP is a great stepping stone, alice.

That would depend on the particular VP at least as much as it does on the particular President, no? Still, I take your point. I think.

James D.

Here would be my answer to the "Do you think Obama is. Christian?"

"He certainly isn't a very well-informed one. Every time he quotes scripture, he seems to get it wrong or completely miss the point of what he's quoting." Followed by a videotape with examples.

James D.

I hate the flu (or whatever hit me yesterday). This is the first time I've been out of bed on 20+ hours.

Miss Marple

James D,

Take care of yourself and do the usual stuff (fluids, rest, etc.) If you don't feel better in a day or so better get to the doctor.

I once got pneumonia from a flu-cold and it scared me to death.

Jane

Hope you feel better James.

Miss Marple

I posted that Tweet by George Stephanopoulos because if you will recall, he was the one who threw out the birth control question in the GOP debates, the beginning shot in the War on Women.

Since he was a Clintonista, I do not think it unrealistic to believe that Hillary would use this little bit of bribery to keep the high black turnout going for her candidacy.

Captain Hate

I doubt the Shelby Steele will give that pansy metro the answer he's looking for.

Miss Marple

Captain Hate,

Agree, but I don't know who the other guy is they are asking.

Jack is Back (on his iPad)

Wonderful Pieces, Clarice.

JamesD, Get well soonest.

Race day down here and temps in the mid 70's.

Janet - I wish my family had a poncho

Our power went out right after I posted that "Dreams..." quote. Hah! It came back on around 6 this morning.

Rich's link at 8:08 was great, about the coordination.
I think that should be trumpeted whenever possible. MFM, advocacy groups, & the Dems coordinating.
Propaganda mills....not "news" at all.

jimmyk

That would depend on the particular VP at least as much as it does on the particular President

It would depend A LOT on the success of the presidency. I like to cite history as a guide: The only VP who succeeded immediately into the presidency (other than by death of the President) in as far back as I can think off the top of my head) was Bush 41. (Nixon came close in '60.)

I'd much rather have Walker in '16 followed by the VP he chooses, on the assumption Walker's presidency will be successful. Reagan's major failing, IMO, was choosing GHWB as his VP. Bush 41 was a decent man, but not a conservative and very much GOPe.

Sue

So I've been bragging about the temps en my neck of the woods. I haven't grandchildren this weekend because mom and dad are in Colorado skiing. I'm supposed to take them to their aunt tonight in the DFW area so she can get them to school in the AM. The ice is expected about the time I'm supposed to take them home. Mom and dad are expected home tomorrow evening. If the flights aren't delayed. ::sigh:: I should remember to not brag.

Extraneus

Why would they choose now to ask about Obama's religion when God Damn America is what they're trying to get off the front page?

Giuliani really rocked them.

Miss Marple

I have to side with jimmyk on the Walker pres or veep question.

I think it is also important to be running a younger guy as opposed to an older woman (Hillary or Warren) and one who has younger children (as opposed to Chelse or Warren's children, if she has any).

I believe dems are in trouble and they know it. Hence the trial balloon of reparations, the ridiculous attacks on Walker by the press, the attempt to make the GOP responsible for the safety or Mall of America patrons.

Sue

Their aunt is a school teacher in the same district, she teaches high school science, so if schools are closed she won't have to figure out what to do with them. Their mother is stressing worried her flight will be canceled.

Porchlight

To be more specific: I don't give a shit where he went to grade school, but think it is dumb to make false claims about it. I don't give a shit about his religion, but think it is dumb to speculate about it.

The school registration document you posted lists his religion as Islam.

Jack is Back!

If Obama is a Christian, then where is his baptismal certificate? Another missing document of his life.

Muzzies don't get baptized, BTW.

Porchlight

Can you keep them another day, Sue? Seems like a risk and school might well be canceled anyway.

henry

Jack, not all Christians get baptized (in the formal certified sense).

AliceH

A fun Request for help from the public by the Bangor, Maine Police Department.

It does not involve any actual Aye-Ayes.

Sue

His stepfather is the only religious person he was around. But his sister isn't Islamic, she's a Budhist. I think he likes associating with radicals. In fact, his book says he does. His book says a lot if MSM would bother reading it. All Rudy needs to do us get a copy of Obsma's book and quote him. Either that or MSM will have to acknowledge he didn't write it.

Miss Marple

henry,

What Christians don't get baptized?

henry

Society of Friends (aka Quakers) are not big on ceremony.

Sue

Porch,

I can keep them as long as I need to, but if school isn't canceled, I can't get them there. The forecast is no thawing until Wednesday.

clarice

The great Caroline Glick nails it:http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Column-one-Netanyahus-true-electoral-rival-391626?utm_source=Newsletter+2-22-2015&utm_campaign=Newsletter&utm_medium=email

Jack is Back!

Henry,

I disagree. You cannot claim to be a christian and not be baptized. That is how you become a christian. But then that is my viewpoint and subject to disagreement.

But then in these times where you can claim to be a citizen just by being here without any documentation to that claim, I guess you can be anything you want to be.

clarice

Sue, I guess you have to weigh the cost of them missing a day of school with (a) the dangers of the trip in bad weather, and (b) the likelihood of their parents being delayed and the problems getting them attended to. I'd keep them and have more fun.

Sue

They have 2 aunts that live within 15 minutes of them. My youngest daughter and their dad's sister. They will be fine if I take them home. Just kind of worried about their mother getting home tomorrow evening, right in the heart of the ice storm.

Extraneus

What Christians don't get baptized?

Trinity Baptists?

henry

Jack, it is a difference in baptism of the physical (a ceremony) vs the spirit (no paperwork). My ancestors left Europe for a reason. ;)

Miss Marple

henry,

If he can prove he is a member of the Society of Friends, I will accept it.

Otherwise, I am sort of wondering. If he claims it by joining Jeremiah Wright's church, then the talk about Wright telling him he didn't have to give up his Muslim ideas in order to join might be true. In which case, Wright might have waived the baptism requirement and one asks WHY.

Janet - I wish my family had a poncho

I think Obama just uses religion as a political tool. He doesn't seem to understand Christianity or Islam at all.

He is definitely not a Christian.

"FALSANI: "Do you believe in heaven?"
OBAMA: "Do I believe in the harps and clouds and wings?"
FALSANI: "A place spiritually you go to after you die?"

OBAMA: "What I believe in is that if I live my life as well as I can, that I will be rewarded. ..."
****************************


"He added, "So, I'm rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people."
***********************************

FALSANI: "Do you believe in sin?"
OBAMA: "Yes."
FALSANI: "What is sin?"
OBAMA: "Being out of alignment with my values."
*******************************

He doesn't even understand Christianity. At the most basic level a Christian must believe in JESUS, for heaven's sake! That Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah, God Incarnate, Immanuel.
If he believes "there are many paths", then he is NOT a Christian.

http://www.bpnews.net/37310/obama-sin-is-what-doesnt-match-my-values

The lousy MFM don't understand Christianity or Islam either....so Obama has that goin' for him.

So glad you liked it, Marlene!

Their whole facebook page is filled with similar delights. For instance:

If I had any idea that the elusive and homely, Aye-aye would bring such joy to so many of our Facebook faithful; I would have featured the creature many months ago.

That post was shared so many times, it has come back through on our page from somewhere in the Arctic. It is warmer there.


[here's more from same post]
Now, on a serious note; If you were in the Family Dollar Store at 89 State Street on February 9th 2015, Detective Josh Kuhn would like to speak to you. He is the detective that looks exactly like Billy Bob Thornton in the movie, Slingblade. It would be worth it to speak to him just to see his perfect impression and make him say, "French Fried Taters".

Sue

We could help our candidates answer these dumb questions better than their paid advisors. Someone tell them to monitor JOM.

He doesn't know why Cain said am I my brother's keeper. He doesn't know how to pronounce now when it is referring to a weapon. His knowledge of the Bible is very limited if what he's shared with us is any indication. I doubt the Right Reverend Wright used the Bible very much in his sermons.

Pronounce bow, not now.

Janet - I wish my family had a poncho

John at Powerline suggestion for Scott Walker's answer -

"That’s not a bad answer, but Republicans need to push back more strongly against Democratic Party reporters. I would suggest something like:

Dan, that is a very stupid question. And not just stupid, but inappropriate. I have never met Barack Obama. How could I possibly comment on his religious views? It would be totally inappropriate for me to do so. Why would you ask me a question like that? If President Obama’s religion is of concern to you for some reason, I suggest you ask him about it. It is not of concern to me. Now, does someone else have a more relevant question?"

So Scot walker and Rudy Guilliani don't like black people,what the hell else is new?

Why are we wasting time on "is he/isn't he a racist?" when everyone knows that they are,even the people posing the question.

It's an exercise is futility,there are more pressing matters like what will Miss butterball 1987 Tonnette Walker wear to the inaugural ball should scotty "a negro can't be a christian" gets elected to the most power full position in the history of the world.....she can't wear her Wal-mart tracksuit?That crap won't fly ms tub o lard.

Can a Negro be a Christian?


It's an interesting question posed by Scott Walker an it's one he and the field of right-wing Prez candidates will have to answer.

Thanks Rudy.

Sue, or mention that Islam still condones slavery?

Wonder why no one questions whether MLK was a Christian?

some background on the weasel:

between these events, and his part in shaping 'Julianne's Bender'* he has been the pitchman for Zaphod, in both campaigns

*the screenwriter, Danny Strong, showed up on Justified, in between his gig as show runner for the gangster apologia, Empire,
as a former prison guard, who was administered a cattleprod

Sue

Henry,

Right on, right on (said in my Rush dialect).

Extraneus

DublinDave! I was wondering when you'd come by. Rudy really landed one this week, huh?

Why is it such a sensitive subject with the left, though? We know they're not patriotic, or religious. Why so butt hurt over this?

Come on, you can tell us.

narciso

it is the consensus in the Cave, that Zaphod is the wisest kindest man they would ever know:

Old Lurker

Regardless of his religion, if any, he is an asshole.

Jane

We only got 6 inches, a mere drop in the bucket comparably. I'm not even plowed out and I drove thru it to get the dog. Roads were not bad.

The snow is a lot taller that kiwi so our walk was pretty funny.

Anytime anyone asks Walker about Obama's religion the reply should be: "What did he say then you asked him?"

Mock the media!!!

Captain Hate

Rove News Sunday has John Roberts hosting (not that dipshit pansy chief justice) so should have some real questions. Speaking of dipshits, he's interviewing Jeh Johnson who is continuing 404's crap about the religion of pieces.

Jane

So what I've heard today on background noise: Obama wants to import Syrians to this country with no background checks or anything else, and there has been a direct threat to The Mall of America.

He sure does make it hard to figure out what side he's on.

Captain Hate

Hijacking the religion of pieces blah blah fucking blah from Imam Jeh.

Captain Hate

Tulsi Gabbart, donk from Hawaii, says name the enemy, idiots.

Miss Marple

Who would name their child "Jeh?"

That is a name given by people who either didn't know how to spell "Jay" or who were trying to be "creative and edgy."

Captain Hate

Jeh dodges the Crusades question; the Ferret must think this is a loser.

narciso

he's an imported CBS weasel, that gives you how seriously Ailes takes the issue,

Captain Hate

Jeh is an idiot saying nothing of substance. He is now talking about his "common sense" approach to letting vermin in and lying through his ass about "coming out of the shadows".

Captain Hate

"Democrats are not blocking debate" from Imam Jeh.

Captain Hate

Jeh talking about "our executive action because Congress wouldn't consider the issue". It sounds like he's been talking to RINOs.

Captain Hate

Jack Keane is shoving all this religion of pieces excuse making up 404's ass. He says this hair splitting does no good.

Miss Marple

So, I see Governor Pence says "it doesn't help anyone to question Obama's patriotism."

And that right there is another example of why he wouldn't be a good candidate.

Jane

Keith Ellison should be against the law.

narciso

Jack Keane, had to move 'heaven and earth' to get Petraeus's counterinsurgency strategy past the Pentagon bureaucracy, which is the only thing that worked in Iraq, hence Obama shut it down

narciso

you were right, Miss Marple,

Captain Hate

Keane says we need more of a military response to ISIS than 404 will ever do or negotiate with allies.

Miss Marple

It occurs to me that the Simons might not be donating as much money due to all of the anti-Israel stuff. They are the company (based here) which owns Mall of America.

Hence the "be careful" warning to shoppers.

Nice little mall you have there, Herb. Shame if something happened to it.

Captain Hate

Governor Pence says "it doesn't help anyone to question Obama's patriotism."

And it doesn't help anyone except Mike "Look at Me" Pence to point this out.

narciso

steyn made my argument, in a different way:

not surprising Dempsey, who was dead set against that strategy was promoted,

Captain Hate

Panel time. Strassel: 404 is being typically vague on his use of force request so it's just for political cover. Power: Repubs aren't giving any good ideas for poor 404; they must help the retarded child. Will: authorization is too permissive to somebody who can't be trusted with anything. Peter Baker: 2001 authorization isn't repealed and he can do whatever he wants. Strassel: Harf is an idiot. Power: Harf isn't an idiot but states things poorly. Will: hashtag wars are stupic. Baker: Harf isn't saying anything different than Bob Gates (maybe he was thinking of Bill Gates).
