Expen$ive Obama-mercial Skimpy On Truth

Obama empty wordsObama went back on his word regarding the use of public campaign funding… which is why he could plop down the mad duckets needed to broadcast his prime-time infomercial on major networks last night. I watched two minutes of it… which was two too many. I find it ironic, in a queer-rabbit sort of way, that an agent of “change” whose acolytes abhor honest capitalism would choose a vehicle representing the more distasteful side of free marketing — the dreaded infomercial.

The AP had a great article taking a critical look at this steaming pile of Obama-vanity [full article]. An excerpt:

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was less than upfront in his half-hour commercial Wednesday night about the costs of his programs and the crushing budget pressures he would face in office.

Obama’s assertion that “I’ve offered spending cuts above and beyond” the expense of his promises is accepted only by his partisans. His vow to save money by “eliminating programs that don’t work” masks his failure throughout the campaign to specify what those programs are—beyond the withdrawal of troops from Iraq.

Marxism aside… Obama, a devout Muslim Black-Liberation-Christian, apparently made quite an impression with al-Qaeda who issued a public prayer of support hoping for a big GOP defeat:

O God, humiliate Bush and his party, O Lord of the Worlds, degrade and defy him.

~al-Qaeda web Internet video posting – reported by Reuters

Unfortunately for al-Qaeda, the prayer (as with all their prayers) went directly to Satan who, already supporting Obama, merely returned to his TiVo to finish watching his favorite daily show “Today’s 115,000 Abortions – Uncensored!”

Anyways… if you made the mistake like I did and found yourself catching even a small glimpse of Obama’s socialist vision last night, you can purge the darkness from your mind with a little light (in lieu of chemical inebriation). Here’s a few short video gems to clear things up faster than mental prunes.

Score a theological slam-dunk to the Catholics… who show that they know “what’s more important” better than some of their Protestant brethren:

And another video. Ahhh… straight talk from a soldier who was on the ground (rather than from artsy, hippie, student-freaks who think they all-of-a-sudden know so much about war). This was YouTube’s number one political video of this election (by viewings, I guess):

    I have a feeling you are going to be as disappointed on Tuesday as you were at the last Super Bowl……

    Get ready for “grumpy-Steve” :-)

    Steve… take heart. You can lead a donkey to water, but can’t always make him go away. Anyhow, it isn’t over yet. Remember the 1st time your red sox beat my yankees in the post season?

    Great post. I actually watched the entire narcissistic, vapid 1/2 hour production. You didn’t miss anything. There was one point where they featured a poor sap who was struggling to make ends meet reaching into his suposedly empty wallet to pay for a modest meal for his family. I kept thinking, with like 600 million bucks on hand, don’t you think the “O” campaign could have had the decency to pick up the check. Oh, wait, first he has to raise his own taxes, then go to Washington and develop a government program, hire a slew of beaurocrats, come up with proper requirements, and require the poor guy to wait in line at some county social services “soup kitchen” to apply for the entitlement. Then he can go home and wait like 45 days for the check to arrive.

    The second is my favorite (though the first was very impressive)

    For me, it won’t be disapointment but sadness.

    I remember the ride home from the Super Bowl party… it was long and unpleasant. I’ve been invited to an election night party… but I’m not sure I could take another ride home like that.

    @Sam
    True – it’s not over until it’s over. We can do the one thing that socialism can never take from us… prayer. :-)

    @Dave
    Sadness… despair… darkness… a black day for us all.

    I don’t know, does the fairness doctrine cover prayer?

    I assume you drove home from the last election happy, hopeful for the future? :-)

    Oh crap, you’re right! For every minute I “selfishly” pray for lower taxes and laws against child murder, then I have to pray an equal minute for socialist government wealth redistribution so that people don’t have to turn to Christ-centered ministries for care.

    When I was at a Buddhist temple just north of Mongolia… there were these prayer wheels that the locals would spin (clockwise, I think) because with every complete turn God would get a prayer through the prayer wheel. So I started spinning a few of them the wrong way so that Satan could get a few prayers, too. :-)

    @Scott
    I never seem to be at an election party for the wins… just the losses. As far back as the ’92 election every election party I’ve been at was a defeat for the pro-life candidate and a win for the pro-abortion-rights candidate. Laying low the last couple elections has paid off… so I’m torn.

    Although… not much can compare to watching the premature celebrations in Kerry’s camp last time as they reveled in faulty exit polls… only to watch their faces succumb to disbelief when the real numbers started rolling in. That was like apples of gold in settings of silver. :-)

    Good article.

    By the way… that Obama cartoon is now my desktop background.
