Smitty Two-fer

Smitty of The Other McCain, zinged out two quotable “quotes of the day” within 24 hours, and it’s not even Friday! Enjoy.

On Dahlia Lithwick’s Jane Curtain moment,

No, Dahlia, the situation where Congress passes whatever comes out of the printer and tosses it over the hedge to clobber the economy is not a proper state of affairs. The parade of clowns who are five weeks off of getting kicked to the curb have sworn an oath, at which they scoff, to support and defend that Constitution.

Second, on Obama’s convenient skirting of “the separation of church and state” axiom by asking church leaders to push the flawed Obamacare:

The chutzpah on display is astounding, given the substantial legal questions unresolved.

Some think that Woodward’s new book will spell his Waterloo. Others that the PantherGate coverup could be a Little Big Horn moment. I think that the dread of the November election, itself, will devastate the President like the Japanese did the Russians at Tsushima. Yes, it’s an obscure reference, but, if you study the event, you’ll see how like that Russian fleet these Democrats are. So hapless as to border on pitiful, without meriting pity.

Fold up that Risk board, the game is over.

40 Days

Samuel Adams pointed out a sobering fact concerning our political survival as a free people when he said:

” But neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chose into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man.” (Wells, Life of Samuel Adams, 1:22.)

He then went on to say that public officials should not be chosen if they are lacking in experience, training, proven virtue, and demonstrated wisdom. He said the task of the electorate is to choose those whose “fidelity has been tried in the nicest and tenderest manner, and had been ever firm and unshaken.” (Ibid.)

(Skousen, The Five Thousand Year Leap, p. 47)

November is coming; Obama is visibly rattled, when he’s not laughing off his former supporter’s pleas for a little substance.

Remember in the pre-White-House-occupation campaign, his minions gloated that Barack Obama was a “constitutional scholar?” Yeah right – Obama can’t even quote the Declaration of Independence correctly.

Imagine Samuel Adams (patriot) meeting Barack Obama, or Hillary Clinton, or Nancy Pelosi (not patriots) on the street. Who would he clobber first? Leave your punchline in the comments.
