At Hot Air: The comprehensive argument against Barack Obama

The 13 posts by SOB Alliance HOPE ON (Help Ohio Prevent Electing Obama Now) authors will probably be collectively stronger. But for a single-post effort, it doesn’t get any better than what Mary Katharine Ham and Guy Benson, under the editorial tutelage of Ed Morrissey, have put together here:


Read. The. Whole. Thing.

As Michelle Malkin blogged, “Spread the word.”

Come back to the SOB Alliance’s 13 Let Freedom Ring-inspired “Never Find Out” posts (first two are here and here) over the next 11 days for gap-fillers.

As stated here in mid-April, Barack Hussein Obama is Objectively Unfit to be President. What has transpired in the intervening six months has only reinforced that assessment’s irrefutability.

HOPE ON Project, Day 2: Let’s Never Find Out Part 2 — Energy

Filed under: Economy,Environment,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 8:43 am

Note: This is the second of what will be 13 daily posts on why Barack Obama is a dangerous, objectionable, and objectively unfit candidate to be president of the United States (while many of the other candidates are not). Part 1 (Obama “Part of the Problem” on Fan and Fred) is here.

The daily videos involved will be from NeverFindOut.org, a project of Let Freedom Ring (donation link is here).

This post is part of the HOPE ON Project (Help Ohio Prevent Electing Obama Now).

Video — “Energy” (direct YouTube link to Obama extolling the virtues of tire inflation and tune-ups as the ENTIRE solution to the energy issue is here):


WOMAN: Senator Obama, you say that punitive taxes on oil companies will solve our energy problems. But economists say windfall taxes will only raise the price of gasoline. You say you’re against offshore drilling. But experts say we need to maximize oil supply while we develop alternative energy. Senator, you are running for President, not us. Why do we need to explain this to you?

ANNOUNCER: What happens when we elect a Senator who doesn’t understand supply and demand? Please, America, let’s never find out.

NixGuy Commentary:

On energy the choice couldn’t be more clear. Here’s Barack Obama (direct YouTube link).

On one side we have a liberal who is beholden to the environmentalist lobby. He (Obama) would rather we keep sending our cash to the Middle East rather than keep it here. And on the other side we have an bonafide energy expert, Sarah Palin, who has successfully managed Alaska’s natural resources (at least in the areas where the Federal government so graciously allows Alaskans to use their own land)


Kudlow: How long would it take? How long would it take? I hear so many, Senator Obama says this, and a lot of Democrats say this, some Republicans, how long will it take Governor? What’s your estimate on this? To start lifting out of ANWR?

Palin: It’s going to take at least five years. You know, and there are other areas in Alaska too, that have the reserves that need to be tapped, certainly offshore. There’s trillions of cubic feet of natural gas, and billions of barrels of oil there too that need to be tapped. We also have a natural gas pipeline that is underway now, a process to get that constructed, where we can build infrastructure and allow known reserves of natural gas up on our North Slope – it’s already there, it’s already proven – to be tapped and flow through a natural gas pipeline. Our legislature is dealing with that issue right now, getting ready to license a company to build that gas line. Again, to feed these hungry markets.


and more of Sarah Palin doing her thing here (direct YouTube link):

If you are at all concerned that energy costs might skyrocket out of control again, or about the fact that we are trading billions of dollars to the Middle East where it distorts the influence of those countries on us and our foreign policy, then you vote McCain/Palin

Obama’s energy policy: solar, electric cars and miracle fuels (Same Stuff Jimmy Carter did to no avail), campaign conversions on coal and a very late campaign “conversion” on offshore drilling.

McCain/Palin: solar energy, electric cars, efficiency, nuclear energy, clean coal, offshore drilling + Energy expert Governor Palin.

Not even a close choice. Jobs and cheap energy: McCain/Palin

BizzyBlog Additional Thought:

Best line of the Never Find Out Vid — “Why do we have to explain this you?” Answers: Because a) Obama doesn’t understand supply and demand; b) Even if he did understand supply and demand, he doesn’t care, because saving the planet from the non-existent threat of global warming is more important than growth and prosperity; and c) to the extent that the government can directly or indirectly control the energy sector, it controls the means of production for the entire economy — which is the very definition of “that word.”

Positivity: Identical twins ordained in Spain

Filed under: Positivity — Tom @ 5:57 am

From Tenerife, Spain:

Oct 13, 2008, 03:43 pm

Cristobal Jose and his twin brother Diego Jesus Rodriguez were ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Bernardo Alvarez of Tenerife on Saturday at the parish of the Immaculate Conception.

The ordination was attended by Bishop Emeritus Felipe Fernandez and Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga of Honduras.

Cristobal and Diego are both 24 years old and hail from the island of Tenerife. Cristobal described his decision to consider the priesthood, saying, “When you consider as a young person saying ‘Yes’ to the Lord forever, you do it from knowing that you have discovered Christ who gives reason to your existence and gives hope to your life.”

“When I decided to embark upon this priestly journey, I began twelve years ago motivated perhaps by the attractive lives of a priest and a nun.  Their example, the way they carried out their ministries etc., everything spoke to me of Christ.  Thanks to these people, I fell in love with the Gospel to the point of surrendering my life totally to Christ.  When I think of my work as a priest, I am excited about the day to day task of contributing to the work for fraternity, justice and love,” he said.

For his part, Diego said that when he was little, he was always asked what he wanted to be when he grew up.  He always answered: “a priest.” …..
