…because Her Royal Cankledness, the Hildebeest, has caught him in a lie not once, but twice.

Yes. A flat out, baldfaced LIE! And Her Bitchiness should know one when she sees one, having pretty much written the book on the subject. A book that, incidentally, still suffers mightily in its usefulness by not having been printed on two-ply, soft paper.

So what’s the lie? Well, wait ’till you hear THIS, because it’s going to shoot Osama Obama Yo Mama’s campaign down in FLAMES, we tell you. As you may be aware, Dumbo The Messiah once claimed that he never really planned to run for President. Well guess what? The Wicked Bitch of the West’s crack research staff have revealed that it isn’t true. Barack Hussein has revealed a desire to become President not once, but twice in the past.

In Kindergarten and in Third Grade, no less
. It is believed that he also, at various times, may have expressed a desire to become a doctor, a policeman, a fireman and even a cowboy.

So there you have it, all of you Obama-supporters: You might as well pack up and go home, because you’re just no match for Shrillary’s elite campaign staff and their 1337 5k|11z.

Her Pantssuitedness Herself couldn’t be reached for comment. It is unknown at this time whether it was because she was busy heroically staying at home and talking on the phone during another hostage crisis, but we hope not. The multiple consecutive orgasms that the MSM were having all over the place praising her fortitude and Presidential demeanor by canceling a public appearance were embarrassing, to say the very least. Not to mention more than a little bit sickening. Next week in the MSM: “Hillary Shows Uncommon Valor by Calling in Sick Because of Hangnail, Film at Eleven!”

Getting desperate, Hildebeest?

MUAHAHAHAHAHA!

    I’ve been saying for a year or more, that the moment Shrillary feels the heat from anyone else, her inner Alinskyite will come crashing through the paper-thin veneer of civility her handlers have crafted for her. Nastiness, polarization, and sneakiness to follow.

    Remember, Rules For Radicals, which is the Shrillary Handbook, says nothing is important but the fight.

    The comments on the link are great. I like the one about the macaroni art. Mine:

    “Meanwhile, a highly placed source in the administration of Chestnut Street Elementary School (formerly P.S. 34) claims to have documentation of an incident in which Barack Obama pissed his pants in a boy’s bathroom some four decades ago. The Senator’s campaign office could not be reached for comment.”

    Hillary feels threatened. She has been playing the victim card too much lately by accusing everyone of “attacking” her.

    Hillary is not my first choice — not even my fourth choice for the nomination. I’ve said it many times: she is too much of a corporatist.

    I would just as soon have Kucinich over Hillary if those two were the only ones in the race — and Kucinich is just not electable.

    My secret desire is Whassiss-name. The one most people don’t even know is running.

    Richardson.

    Executive experience AND a former diplomat, who happens to know a few people, and has a pretty decent clue as to what is happening in the world.

    But hey, I would go with just about anyone in the Democratic line up for different reasons. I am just not ready to wrap my mind around a Hillary administration.

    But I could go with a Obama ticket. I like the idea that he is a fresh face and not really a beltway hack.

    Guess I’d better never run for president. Not only did I, in grade school, say I wanted to be POTUS, I actually had that role in one of the exercises at National Youth Leadership Conference in DC my Junior year. Wonder what Queen Hilliary would do with that!

    Yes, it is early, but Iowa is in exactly thirty days. So you can expect the fur to be flying on both sides of the aisle.

    Romney is going to have “The Talk” on Thursday, Rudy 9iu11iani is trying to suck up to Grover Norquist, yet has some serious questions of judgment and a third marriage. Expect both to be brutally attacked by Huckabee and FredHorn LegHorn in the coming weeks.

    It is a political in-fight in action and both sides are busy fighting amongst themselves.

    Iowa can make or break some of these candidates. Picture John McCain dropping out because his “straight talk express” will have ten flat tires by the end of Iowa.

    The only reason they had to go back to third grade on Obamamma was because he doesn’t have anything else in his resume.

    I can, without hesitation, say that I never voiced an intention to run for President of the United States and/or Prime Minister of Canada during my 4 years in third grade. I did, however, express great desire to run after Denise D. in the 6th Grade, Diana H. in the 7th, and Pam G. in the 8th. After three consecutive middle school flame-outs with the opposite sex, and being too young and inexperienced to stalk, I concentrated on grooming myself for the ultimate career - Sacker at Piggly Wiggly. Through hard work and dedication, I eventually made the leap into a leadership position as Assistant Manager of the Feminine Hygiene Department. It was then that I knew the only thing standing between me and a solid run for the White House as a Democrat was a devastating head injury (or the drug-induced equivalent). It was a wife, children, religion and Ronnie R. that prevented the brain damage from occurring and turned me into a ***REAGAN CONSERVATIVE!*** :em95: Now I actually need to have morals and conviction to run for President and Prime Minister.

    I have yet to agree with anything Obama has said, but he is a likable candidate. So, this makes the Hildebeast look like an unimaginative (can’t she find a more substantive bat to whack him with?), and lazy (same old type of ploy), evil, vindictive, rotten hearted beyotch.

    He’s clueless in matters of statesmanship.

    I just burned myself on hot coffee reading that!

    After seven years Bush is STILL clueless in matters of statesmanship. When he was campaigning in 2000, he couldn’t point out on a map where many of these countries were, let alone who their leaders were. Even now he can’t tell who they are unless he uses que cards and even so he will still mangle their names.

    And what kind of foreign experience did Ronald Reagan have? Or Bill Clinton?

    People want a change. You see that on your side with people starting to take a closer look at Reverend Huckabee. They don’t want a Rudy, a Hillary, or any of the other “big name” candidates. They started looking at Fred!, but he seem tired, and uninspiring.

    So yes, the fresh face is appealing to a lot of people.

    I never said Obama would be my first choice though. I said I could be comfortable with an Obama ticket. I think at this point, my first choice would be Richardson, because of ALL of the candidates on BOTH sides, he probably has the firmest grasp of foreign matters.

    I don’t know if he was ever asked to point out the locations of countries on a map, but I wonder how many could have correctly identified the leaders of Chechnya, Taiwan, India and Pakistan in 1999 for some reporter’s “gotcha” pop quiz.

    Actually you are supposed to quote someone accurately. You didn’t

    .

    I paraphrased. I didn’t quote. But the gist was exactly the same. But since it is quotes you want, here goes:

    ROSE: I haven’t heard you be willing to acknowledge any mistakes in eight years.

    ROVE: Sure, I’m happy to acknowledge mistakes.

    ROSE: Well, tell me one.

    ROVE: Social security. We moved too late. We should have moved a heck of a lot earlier.

    ROSE: And the war?

    ROVE: Uh, the war– I’m– I’m going to be circumspect about this– look, you’re trying to get me to gush my whole book out there. Were there mistakes made in the war, yeah?

    ROSE: I’m not trying to make you gush your book.

    ROVE: You can make the argument– you can make an argument that we should have done the surge earlier–

    ROSE: Go way back. Make the argument perhaps we should have delayed and let the inspections take their–

    ROVE: Charlie– Charlie, I’m not going to tell you the answer to this but I want you to remember you asked me about that because one of the untold stories about the war is why did the United States Congress, the United States Senate, vote on the war resolution in the fall of 2002?

    ROSE: Why?

    ROVE: This administration was opposed to it. I’m going to talk about that in my book.

    ROSE: Tell me, give me–

    ROVE: No, no.

    ROSE: Give me something.

    ROVE: No.

    ROSE: Give me something.

    ROVE: I just did. I told you the administration was opposed to voting on it in the fall of 2002.

    ROSE: Because?

    ROVE: Because we didn’t think it belonged in the confines of the election. We thought it made it too political. We wanted it outside the confines of the election. It seemed it make things move too fast. There were things that needed to be done to bring along allies and potential allies abroad and yet–

    ROSE: So you didn’t do it because…?

    ROVE: There was a vote, and I’m– I’m–

    ROSE: But you were opposed to the vote.

    ROVE: It happened. we don’t determine when the Congress vote on things. The Congress does.

    ROSE: You wish it hadn’t happened at that time. you would have preferred it did not happen at that time.

    ROVE: That’s right.

    ROSE: Because your argument– your argument is you would have had maybe more inspections. You would have been able to build a broader coalition. You could have done a whole lot other things if you didn’t have to have a vote, right?

    ROVE: Right, right, exactly.

    There is a small problem with Rove’s new revision of history here. There are still bits and pieces floating all over the InterTubes that contradict Rove’s Assertions.

    I know you all despise Common Dreams, but I want to start there because it is really the only place the original Los Angeles Times story still exists in its entirety without having to pay for it. I could find the excerpts on FreeRepublic, but those are only the excerpts.

    Timing Entwined War Vote, Election

    In recent weeks, President Bush has used the October 2002 Iraq war vote to deflect criticism of his conduct in the lead-up to war. Today’s Los Angeles Times reports that, in September 2002, Sen. Tom Daschle asked President Bush to delay the vote on the Iraq war:

    “I asked directly if we could delay this so we could depoliticize it. I said: ‘Mr. President, I know this is urgent, but why the rush? Why do we have to do this now?’ He looked at Cheney and he looked at me, and there was a half-smile on his face. And he said: ‘We just have to do this now.’ “

    And then there is this:

    Democrats Unconvinced On Iraq War

    The White House, after originally suggesting it might act against Iraq without congressional approval, has called on Congress to pass a resolution of support before adjourning in October.

    After attending a classified briefing by national security adviser Condoleezza Rice and CIA Director George J. Tenet yesterday, Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) said: “It would be a severe mistake for us to vote on Iraq with as little information as we have. This would be a rash and hasty decision” because the administration has provided “no groundbreaking news” on Iraq’s ability to strike the United States or other enemies with chemical, biological or nuclear weapons. Senate Majority Whip Harry M. Reid (Nev.), the chamber’s second-ranking Democrat, also advocates delaying the vote, according to Democratic aides.

    […]

    With so many U.S. lawmakers cool to Bush’s war talk, the stakes for his U.N. speech are growing higher. Democrats and Republicans alike said the president has the opportunity to change minds and win support if he lays out as clear and compelling a case for a preemptive attack against Iraq as he did for conducting a global war against terrorism last fall. [Emphasis mine]

    It doesn’t look as though Congress was as eager to pass a war resolution as Rove said they were. But let’s read further, shall we?

    Democrats believe there is a strong precedent for delaying a final vote until after the elections, so lawmakers will not feel pressured to back the president just before voters go to the polls. In 1990, George H.W. Bush, the current president’s father, agreed to postpone a vote on going to war with Iraq until after the congressional elections.

    So what caused the vote to happen?

    Most Republicans, and some Democrats, however, feel Congress should heed Bush’s request and vote on the resolution in the next month.

    “People are going to want to know, before the elections, where their representatives stand,” said Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (Va.), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. “This could be the vote of the decade, so why wait?” [Emphasis mine]

    But the most damning evidence that Rove is a liar is the following:

    THE PRESIDENT: I am sending suggested language for a resolution. I want — I’ve asked for Congress’ support to enable the administration to keep the peace. And we look forward to a good, constructive debate in Congress. I appreciate the fact that the leadership recognizes we’ve got to move before the elections. I appreciate the strong support we’re getting from both Republicans and Democrats, and look forward to working with them.

    It was President Bunnypants and a Congress with a razor-thin minority of Republicans and a few Democrats that pushed this vote though.
