BLOG: Rufus, You Have Lost Your Mind

Bryan Dubois
Oct 26, 2010

 

It's not fair that online readers don't get to shake their heads at this week's Rufus Sanders column, so here it is in its entirety:

And since it's not fair that Rufus spouts his left wing religious beliefs without response:

This political season is as toxic as it gets.

Of course it's "toxic."  But had the tables been reversed and the Dem's had the momentum, this toxicity would've been described as "positive energy."

It is only a mid-term election but you would think this was a presidential year.   

Because in Rufus's world, the electorate isn't supposed to be interested in politics during mid-term elections.

But maybe it really is in that it’s the successful policies of President Obama that is being challenged by right-winged angry conservatives, lost independents   , confused libertarians, “crumpet cracker-eating tea drinkers,” and other impatient, ill-informed, and unreasonable Americans.   

Because if you oppose Obama's policies you must be either scared or ignorant.  In Rufus's mind, there's no such thing as opposition based on principle.  Also, the obvious:  Successful policies of President Obama?  [snort!]

While it is expected by many the Republicans will win back the House and maybe even take the Senate, I predict the Democrats will surprise even themselves and carry the day.

Rufus, you've lost your mind.

Despite slumping poll numbers and the hateful rhetoric I still have faith the American voter will see through the emptiness of the “do nothing” Republicans and the fragmented “no we can’t” tea party and do the right thing.   

Wait Rufus, you just called all of those people "angry," "lost," "confused," "crumpet cracker-eating tea drinkers" "Impatient," "ill-informed" and "unreasonable Americans" but now you profess to have faith in them?   There's a new political tactic for you:  Rufus will call you names unless you vote for Democrats.

I just don’t see how any thinking person would want to go back to the failed administration policies of 2001-’08.

Actually I think people are opposed to a $13 trillion dollar debt and government run health care - neither of which plagued the country 2001 to 2008.  (Progressives always mislead their audience about the motivations of those who oppose Obama.)

To do so would be insanity and   pure political suicide.

Wrong again Rufus.  "Political suicide" would better describe the practice of  ramming through unpopular legislation without considering the wishes of the American people.  Or are you still trying to figure out the cause of the tea party?

You remember those were the policies that led us into two wars which has cost us over $3 trillion and were the cause of the largest economic collapse this country has seen since the Great Depression,  not to mention the longest war in our history.   

Huh? 

Again, Rufus misleads the audience by not acknowledging the housing crisis which had nothing to do with the war. 

I just don’t believe that the American people will actually put into office the likes of Christine O’Donnell, who has had to explain to us that she is not a witch, while admitting that she did dabble in witchcraft and black magic — all while trying to explain her extreme conservatism.

Believe whatever you want, but if you choose to ignore why supporters are attracted to O'Donnell, you commit political suicide - just like your party has been in the process of doing over the last 2 years.  Voters don't care about the youthful mistakes of O'Donnell - they care about how she will represent them.

It is not only troubling but verges on political lunacy.   

Not really.  (I'm starting to wonder if Rufus understands any phrase that contains the word "political."  If a tactic works during an election cycle, it's obviously not 'political lunacy,' is it?  Political lunacy would be ramming through legislation and then expecting people to praise you for it.

Then there is Sharon Angle in Nevada, who has declared America is   being taken over by Sharia law, while she continues to come off as a questionable backroom political dealer who has said just about any thing to get elected.   

Rufus, you're mixing Angle up with her opponent Harry Reid.  Speaking of which, have you seen Angle's ad that makes fun of Reid describing himself as someone who's on a "fixed income."  [snort!]  To me, Reid better defines a person who will say anything - no matter how outlandish - to stay in office.

Then there is the multi-millionaire Republican Linda McMahon in Connecticut, who is attempting to pay for her Senate run; while not even knowing   what the minimum wage is. Talk about being out of touch!    In New York the conservatives have one of the most embarrassing candidates in years in the big-mouth; intemperate Carl Paladino who wants to be governor, but who is inappropriate...

Yeah, Paladino is just entirely "inappropriate."  His entire being is inappropriate.  Not something he said, or something he did - Rufus believes his entire existence is 'inappropriate."

politically incorrect, insensitive and apparently a flaming homophobe in one of the most culturally diverse areas of the country.

Because in Rufus's world, one must be 'politically' correct.  (Again, does he understand the idea of 'political correctness'?  Does Rufus think that political correctness is something that one should strive for?  And apparently it's okay to be a flaming homosexual - just not a 'flaming homophobe!"  [snort!]

In Ohio there is Rich Iott who wants to represent the 9th district in the House, but who has been photographed wearing an SS uniform.   

...Yeah, because Rich Iott's entire campaign should be discredited because he was a WWII reenactor who was photographed playing a bad guy.

And just to think if these loonies take over we will be stuck with the sleazy, slicklooking, chain-smoking, ultimate insider lobby-peddling   John Boehner as the speaker of the house.

If somebody had trashed Obama like this, Rufus would've went into vapor lock indignation mode - yet it's okay for him to trash Boehner.  (By the way, Rufus, you do know that Obama smokes, right?)

The rest of Rufus's column consists of unsupported claims that Obama is our savior and that the world has been a better place since he was elected.

Or something like that.

The column gets too tiring to read.

Something tells me that Rufus is going to support Obama to the grave.  And we'll have the privilege of reading every Obama-based (or race-based) column of his until then.

 Just remember:  We are the ones we've been waiting for!!

Comments

Hmm

One thing you neglected to mention:   By 2012 there will be peace in the Middle East.  You heard it from Rufus first.  Its a good thing he stopped shortly after writing that.  Who know what he would have written next.

Pete,  I was listening to NPR yesterday and they were analyzing all the reasons for voter anxiety this election cycle and I got a kick out of the litany of reasons they listed.  They said that "race" was a major voting issue, but they omitted government run healthcare and skyrocketing spending as a reason people are disenfranchised with goverment.  Hilarious!

Pete

I have been upset with the Federal Government for going on two decades now. It has turned into a behemoth that it was never intended to be. And I am beginning to think it cannot be reined in anymore. It has it hands in everything an everage person does on daily basis. And the D's and R's are not going to fix it. Neither has the answers.

The racial thing they keep floating out there is a cover. They figure if the push that it will work on the "white guilt" to try and shame people to their side. Brutus on here does it all the time.

I have said it before, if people actually put in as much effort deciding who to vote for as they did finding out if Lindsey Lohan passed her last drug screen or who won on American Idle this country would be a lot better place and in a lot better shape!

Those are some bold statements backed by cherry picked data slices. Look past the smoke screen of your personal attacks and take a look at the big picture. I have and my summary ends a bit differently than your version of 2012. More can be accomplished by mobilizing the middle than arguing about the extremes but, I understand you need sensationalism to fuel your slight of hand.

He also left out a cure for cancer and heart disease in 2012.

In his list of apocalyptic predictions, I'm surprised that Mr. Sanders fails to mention that the coming of the Messianic Age of Obama also portends the imminent winning of two Super Bowls by the Browns in consecutive years!

Matt Damon


















































































































































The entire last paragraph is absurd. Saying peace can happen in the ME by 2012 especially considering the current direction of US foreign policy is more ridiculous than some of the things O'Donnell or Palidino have said in the last few months.

Secondly, Obama has not ended the war in Iraq as Rufus states. I guess it was a pretty smart political move on Obama's part, declaring combat operations over, but our troops are still there, they’re still getting shot at, and they are still shooting back (obviously). That sounds like war to me. I'd like the war to be over as much as most Democrats, but it's not. And there's nothing Obama can say to change that. The troops are still there.

Rufus later says that the war in Afghanistan will be over by 2012. Unless 100% of American troops leave Afghanistan, the war will not be over. If the US still has a presence over there, they will still be attacked, there will still be war going on. The people we're fighting in Afghanistan are not just going to wake up and decide that they are done fighting. Either they're Al-Qadea (they only have aprx. 50 members) and they're looking to become martyrs, or they are a part of an Afghan tribe, and they're pretty much in it for everything since the US has ravaged their homeland. If we just leave, they aren't going to counter attack or anything, considering they have no resources what so ever, maybe a few US weapons (that we gave them in the 80's) or Soviet Ak-47s, that they don't even know how to use. They just fire and pray to Allah that they hit somebody.

Third. Rufus tries to group Rich Iott with Palidino and O'Donnell. This shows that either he's an idiot, or he doesn't really pay attention to anything, he's just going to support the Democrats no matter what even when he knows that their position is absurd. Rich Iott participated in WWII re-enactments. In some of those re-enactments he portrayed a Nazi soldier. In order to have a re-enactment, somebody has to portray the bad guy. Considering how many actors turned politicians hold office I don't understand how some people cannot recognize the difference between real life and a movie, a play, a re-enactment, ect…

Also, Mr. Dubios acting as the typical, "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore" character, comes off as an idiot in his response to Rufus. He continually says “[snort!]” which I really don’t understand, but anyway

"Because in Rufus's world, the electorate isn't supposed to be interested in politics during mid-term elections."

- Actually, in the real world the electorate is not interested in politics durring the mid-term elections, including this one. Check out some figures after Nov. 2, you'll see what I mean.

"Voters don't care about the youthful mistakes of O'Donnell - they care about how she will represent them."

-These same voters care about seeing Obama’s birth certificate. I’m a voter (not in her state unfortunately) and I care about the idiotic things she’s said. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzHcqcXo_NA

"And apparently it's okay to be a flaming homosexual - just not a 'flaming homophobe!"  [snort!]"

-It’s not okay to be a bigot.

"The rest of Rufus's column consists of unsupported claims that Obama is our savior and that the world has been a better place since he was elected. Or something like that. The column gets too tiring to read."

I guess that means, Rufus made a few decent points, and you’re not going to credit him at least for that.

"And we'll have the privilege of reading every Obama-based (or race-based) column of his until then."

-Pulling the race card (out of nowhere).

Matt, 

SamAdams

Last time I checked, it was just as racist to cut Obama some slack because he's black as it would be to criticize him because he's black. For the record, I think Obama ranks as just about the worst president we've ever had. Also for the record, his many failures have nothing to do with his skin color. In fact, I supported a black man for president years ago (Alan Keyes). Where were all of you politically correct "we need a black president" Democrats THEN? Oh, I forgot...Keyes actually supports the Constitution as written rather than as he'd wish to re-write it!

Sanders' glowing prose about Obama's brilliance in the clear face of evidence to the contrary makes me wonder if it isn't perfectly fair of Dubois to draw a race bias parallel there. In fairness to Sanders, however, Obama HAS been very successful in his endeavors if one assumes his goal is to systematically destroy the economy and the country. At that, he's been far TOO successful!

Last but not least, for Sanders to assume that anybody who supports the Tea Party agenda or who, in fact, supports anything less than a "progressive" agenda is stupid, I'll put my IQ (not to mention my common sense) up against his any day. I'd like to say I'm just that smart, but I'm afraid Sanders doesn't provide much of a challenge in that regard. The real pity is that there are people out there who think just like he does, and who'll vote just like he suggests. Say buh bye to prosperity and freedom when you do!

brutus smith

 Wow bryan, all that hate wrapped up in a little package.

Bryan Dubois

Brutus!  We finally agree on something! 

I think the following passage best captures what you're talking about:

It's a new day, I tell you!  Brutus and I agree on something.  Finally.

 

brutus smith

Allen Keyes? What a B S story. I have a black friend too? Who are you trying to s%#$. 

mikel

and al gore invented the internet!...lmao...rufus is as big an idiot as all of jim jones followers that drank the kool-aid.  please rufus do not drink anything that may be placed in front of you!

brutus smith

 Ah yes, leave it to non-comprehending right wingnut to not know I'm talking about him. (bryan)

brutus smith

 mikel, Al Gore never said that, but coming from another non-comprehending right wingnut.

Ah Rufus. Dons his funny hat and raising his index finger to the sky has (once again) proclaimed peace, prosperity, free medical healthcare, free dental care, free medicine, a new home, a Cadillac, and a baby's arm holding an apple . . . . all courtesy of liberal democrats and the Obama Administration.

All this free stuff might be good for you, but I have to pay for mine, and apparently you think I need to pay for yours, too.

The Democrats want another four years "to finish the job." What job, bankrupting the country? Giving it away to lobbyists and bankers? Selling it out to the Chinese? Maybe we can put a dragon head on Mr. Lincoln in his memorial and make the new owners feel more at home. At least fireworks would be legal again.

The Republicans are just as bad. More money for the banks and those who cheated the middle class out of their retirements. Bunch of bandits, all of them! Too bad tar and feathering went out of vogue.

Vote Libertarian, Constitutionalist or SOMETHING different. Lose the career politicians and put the system in the hands of those willing to listen to the wise counsel of their constituents. Unplug the liberal media and begin voting based on knowledge, not some empty promises from a bunch of con artists who pick your pocket with their left hand while they shake your right hand.

And for Heaven's sake, read Rufus' remarks for what they really are, satirical fiction. 

mikel

ahh brutus but indeed al gore did make that claim to fame when he was running for prez as one of his major accomplishments.

brutus smith

Proof mikel, actual speech where he said that. I'll clue you in, don't bother looking because you won't find it.

Hey D-Bag, welcome to the conversation!

Some people are starting a company over in Norwalk. I bet they are wealthy to have capitol to do that. I suggest you and Brutus and Rufus go over and give 'em two to the back of the head. We all know that rich people are evil.

david0255
Attn: Rufus Sanders Per Your “Not So Fast” Diatribe in the Monday’s Sandusky Register I would like to thank Rufus for the very entertaining editorial. I stopped getting the SR over a year ago due to this type of mindless editorial, and only read this paper because I picked it up at work to look at the Obituaries. (Yes, a good friend of mine was in them.) When after I read the first two paragraphs I was angry and forced myself to read the rest so I could have an educated opinion of Rufus’ Opinions. I am glad I did, as it was the best laugh I had all week! 1st Point: You commented you “would think this is a presidential year.” It is my good man, it is the first opportunity for “we the people” to let the President know what we truly think of what he has and is doing to this once fine country, and to begin implementing CHANGE! 2. “Right wing angry conservatives, Lost Independents, confused Libertarians, Crumpet Cracker-eating Tea Drinkers, and other Impatient Ill-Informed and unreasonable Americans? “ Well, at least thank you for the “Americans” admission! I’m gonna add: “Caring Informed Patriots!” (P.S. You can talk to and about us Americans that way, but don’t say it about Muslims!) 3.  Paragraph 2 really makes me laugh! “Hateful Rhetoric (YOU are the Master of that!) I’ve never heard more from all of the afore mentioned “Americans” than I hear from you each time you write! 4. “I just don’t see how any Thinking Person”  (Gonna finish this line for you) could fail to see the devastation of Obama’s Forced policies and ineffective bail outs! 5.  To correct you, I believe sir as does most of the “Thinking People” that Obama’s Socialistic Agenda is what has cost us the 3 Trillion Dollar deficit. 6. “Loonies?” Really? Did they teach you how to endear yourself to all your readers by calling the majority of us “Loonies?” BTW: You also fit neatly into that category. 7. Fanatical Wingnuts? Tell me, how many of Obama’s appointees either couldn’t pass the background check, could not do the job, or have already deserted their post? 8. Health Care Bill: Your going to see the very expensive consequences and further economic disaster if this is not either drastically modified, or repealed entirely. 9. “This administration stopped the world ….economic depression and stopped the war.” I guess I’m still waiting for Europe, France etc. to send Obama a thank you note for helping them to avert economic disaster, and anemic one sided arms control with multiple “Enemies” that are unenforceable and unverifiable? Pa-leeze!   10. “Appointment of two female Supreme Court Judges.”  Is that a good thing, or the best thing he could manage to do? History will probably show that is the one thing you are correct about, and that is very sad in a very big way! 11. “By all accounts the economy is turning around.” What? Where? Then why have unemployment benefits been extended to 99 weeks? The unemployment numbers are inaccurate, as they do not reflect those who have run out of benefits, or those that are working 2, 3 or 4 jobs at minimum wage to make ends meet. 12. See you kin 2012. The war in the Middle East will NEVER be over, we like the Russians may have withdrawn, but the war has raged on for thousands of years and will certainly continue without us. 13. “And this fickle Electorate” The greatest Freedom/Truth Searching Electorate in the world will have seen the error of this administrations way and you will be saying “B’bye” to it! 14. In closing, Juan Williams is an INTELLIGENT Honorable Patriot,  you on the other hand sir are a Hypocrite and Bigot. I would call you Ignorant as you just have most of the “Electorate,” but to do that would be to make an excuse for your ranting, and  for that sir, there is no excuse!   Not so respectfully Submitted: David E. Moore Norwalk, Oh

Gee, everything I needed to know I learned in kindergarten. Still having a hard time with that play well with others, teacher never told me about libtards.

Pete

If your teachers were like the one in Cincy that had vans give students a ride to the board of elections then passed them out a sample democrat ballot (during school time), then they were Libtards Goofus.

 

A lawsuit has been filed against the Cincinnati Public School system after high school students last week were driven in church vans to a polling station and given sample ballots listing only Democrats.

6079 Smith W
How is Mr. Sander's use of the phrase “crumpet cracker-eating tea drinkers” not racist?   Isn’t the word “cracker” a black negative epithet for whites?        

SamAdams

Brutus,

Believe what you will, but I DID support Allen Keyes in his run for the presidency. In fact, if somebody would talk him into running again (I suspect he's smarter than that, but he might also see how desperately we need genuine patriotic American leadership so you never know), I'd vote for him in a minute. With a single exception (some of his religious views), I agreed with him right down the line. Still do. The fact that he's black never entered into it. Sort of like, as far as I'm concerned, Obama's not our first black president. He's our first overtly RED president.

goofus

William Jefferson Clinton was our first black president.

Hmm

Rufus does more to hurt Obama than any Republican pundit ever could with his rediculousness but he doesn't care because he loves the attention.  Neither side needs these crazies.

brutus smith

 Wow, who knew right wingnuts lived in Norwalk?

brutus smith

 sam a, being that Keyes is right of a right wingnut, that says a lot about you. No more claiming of being Independent. 

Massengill Wins...

Rufus must write a great column that he gets so many comments on a comment on his column.  If "hits" are the criteria to determine the success of an editorial........ Rufus is a star!

goofus

Rufus is a star, he's pretty far out there near Uranus.

The New World Czar

 "Fanatical wingnuts"...Christine O'Donnell, Sharron Angle, Linda McMahon, Carl Paladino, Rich Iott, and John Boehner...compare this to...Alan Grayson, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Barbara Boxer, Charles Rangel, and Dennis Kucinich?

Rufus, thanks again for boosting the Republican electorate by another 2%. BTW, it is "Sharron" and not "Sharon".

 

On November 2, 2010, there will be a nationwide tea party, and all are welcome to attend.

stormy

Yeah, dooshie, he's a star; full of hot gas!

Wow; I've never seen so much drivel in one column before.  First, Obama did not end the war in Iraq; he simply declared an end to combat operations.  This he could do because the country had begun to stabilize, and THIS happened because of the surge (which then-Sen. Obama opposed).  Talk about taking credit where it isn't due.

Yes, going into Iraq was a mistake; yes, it hurt our economy, but it didn't cause the "greatest economic collapse since the Great Depression."  I lived thru the greatest economic upheaval since the 1930s; it happened in the SEVENTIES, on Jimmuh Carter's watch.

Gawwwd, I could spend hours on this, but I don't have time.  Will come back later.  In the meantime, Roofie old fellow, in response to all of your "I just don't believes,"  here's a little something to think about.  It's why you SHOULD believe that the end of one party, left-wing rule is coming:

TED...KENNEDY'S...SEAT! ! ! !

AHHHHH-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA! ! ! ! ! !

In a March 1999 interview with Wolf Blitzer, Gore said, "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."..as well as:  "If it wasn't for Al Gore, you might not be reading this web page right now."

 

Massengill Wins...

Are the wingnuts too stupid to undertand that Gore never said he invented the Internet.  What he said is that he was involved in the iniatives behind funding and developing the Internet but to the reading comprehension deficient..... this concept is hard for them to understand.  Here is a link.

http://www.perkel.com/politics/g...

The Internet is a superhighway of information but the wingnuts are on the short bus in the slow lane!

mikel

i guess winston that the definition has me confused, please help by picking one:

create Definition cre·ate [ kree áyt ] To hear the pronunciation, install Silverlight   VERB  1.  transitive verb make something: to bring something into existence 2.  transitive verb give rise to something: to result in something or make something happen 3.  transitive and intransitive verb produce inventions or art: to use imagination to invent things or produce works of art 4.  transitive verb appoint somebody: to give somebody a new title, role, or office 5.  transitive verb performing arts perform role for first time: to be the first person to perform a particular role in a theatrical production   so if i said that i am going to take your car, and it comes up missing, i really didn't take it?   i didn't say it or make it up, gore said it.  kind of like timothy mcveigh saying he didn't blow up the building in oklahoma but the bomb did.
Massengill Wins...

Providing the funding and promoting the funding iniatives in Congress was his role.  Sort of like Bush standing on a carrier claiming he just brought Iraq freedom.  Did he do that personally (if it was true)?  It is called a role and in this case your misunderstanding of the facts makes you a useful stooge!

There's a new political tactic for you:  Rufus will call you names unless you vote for Democrats.   Name calling or labeling seems to be the lone tactic for the democrats on this blog also!       It’s just proof they have losing the debate!
SamAdams

Brutus,

I've never claimed to be an Independent, so you saying I can't claim to be one in the future isn't exaclty a hardship. Since you seem to enjoy labels so much, I'll tell you I'm probably closest to being  Jeffersonian Liberal. These days, that's probably best exemplified by kind of a cross between the Libertarian and the Constitution Parties.

I'm not sure why you bother, though. It seems you much prefer to call anybody who disagrees with your leftist views a "right wingnut." Frankly, I don't think the "right wingnuts" would be willing to claim me, but as anti-freedom as some of their viewpoints are, I'd take them any day over so-called "progressives" who would see us controlled by one government entity or another from cradle to grave!

MHL

There is nothing better than watching the local nuts going crazy as Rufus spits the truth.

Very well written piece Mr.sanders!!

Salvatore

Rufus says "But maybe it really is in that it’s the successful policies of President Obama that is being challenged by right-winged angry conservatives, lost independents   , confused libertarians, “crumpet cracker-eating tea drinkers,” and other impatient, ill-informed, and unreasonable Americans."

 

Lost independents? Independents are some of the most informed voters. Independents vote for the best possible candidates no matter what party they belong to. Why didn't Rufus mention all of the corrupt politicians from both parties, most of who are democrats? Why no mention of left wingers like socialists and communists? What has Obama really accomplished? I just seen on television again that he is on the campaign trail for other democrats. Why doesn't Obama stay home to work on this nation's problems instead of campaigning for others? The only ill-informed and unreasonable Americans that I see are straight party voting democrats and republicans. Plus those who take left wing and right wing propaganda as gospel. I guess Rufus believes that anybody who is not a left winger is angry, lost, confused, impatient, ill-informed, unreasonable and "crumpet cracker-eating tea drinkers" whatever that means. Why use the word cracker with crumpet? I guess that it is okay to drink kool-aid?

@ Mr. Dubois:

I enjoyed the Obie cigarette smoking pics. Kinda gives him a 'touch of class' don't you think? LOL.  

There have been rumors that our "95% cured" President likes to light up a few before getting on Marine One.

http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20100531/discuss/305319966/

"95% cured"? He's so full of @#$%.

 

 

 

Bryan Dubois

Looks like those photos are faked.  (the one on the left for sure, probably the one on the right too)  Apparently somebody critical of Obama's smoking wanted to provide a visual through photoshopping.  Nobody has been able to get a real picture of Obama lighting up, but as of February of this year, Obama has not yet kicked the habit.

As for the faked photos:  I'm surprised nobody called me on the mistake.  I guess I'll have to call myself.

 

6079 Smith W
@ Mr. Dubois:   Whether the photos are faked or not makes little difference in the overall validity of the argument. He’s admitted it.   One of the major points is that Michelle apparently stated that she would only support his candidacy if he quit. A family of liars?   Also, one has to really question the sanity and the mental state of anyone who smokes with the vast amount of information that we have on the dangers of cigarette smoking.   When someone sneaks smokes, it tends to speak to a greater pathology.  

Now where’s that certified birth certificate and can we see it in order to clear up any possibility of doubt?

 

Bryan Dubois

I understand what you're saying, Smitty, but the photos are still faked. 

I agree that hiding the fact that you smoke speaks to the greater pathology.

6079 Smith W

@ Mr. Dubois:   IMO, there’s not much difference between those “faked” photos and a “docu-drama” where the producers assume and then re-enact events as they believe that they might have or could have occurred.   We could also think of them merely as satire.   In our wonderful digital age, I’ve had to learn to be somewhat dubious of most photographic and audio “evidence.”  Since I’m a skeptic by nature, that’s not that difficult.    

 

6079 Smith W

Also during his medical exam, his doctors recommended a "moderation of alcohol intake". 

What exactly does that mean?

Are there any photoshopped pics out there illustrating his binge drinking? LOL

Alan Keyes Ordered to Pay President Obama's Court Costs   Tue Oct 26, 2010 at 11:11:22 AM PDT

A state appellate court in Sacramento tossed out a lawsuit claiming President Barack Obama is not eligible to occupy the White House because he is not a natural-born citizen of the United States. The court ordered the plaintiffs to pay all court costs of the defendants.

The lawsuit was filed shortly after the 2008 general election. The leading plaintiff (of three) was Alan Keyes, a former member of President Ronald Reagan's administration from Maryland, and the 2008 American Independent Party candidate for president.

Keyes is a member of the so-called "birthers" movement. In his complaint, he claimed there is persuasive evidence Obama was born in what is now Kenya, which was then (1961) the British East African Protectorate of Zanzibar. He further claimed that President Obama would have automatically been a British citizen, based on his father's citizenship, and ineligible for office.

The truly annoying thing about Bryan Dubious is that there is no liberal blogger affiliated with the Sandusky Register to counteract his Beck/Rush/Palin regurgitations.

 

Why has Westerhold judged this voice the only one allowed to carry the Register's "BLOG" stamp in order to write opinions?

 

Mr. Westerhold care to respond?

 

Bryan Dubois

Pundit, 

Let me help you out here, bro:  Matt Westerhold is unlikely to respond to questions directed at him in a commenting thread.  I can't speak for the guy, but your way is likely not going to get you where you want to go...

If you really want a blog on the Register, (which seems to be a recurring theme for you over the last several weeks) what you need to do is introduce yourself to the Register by starting a blog somewhere on the internet.  There are dozens of place for you to write.  Wordpress, blogger to name a couple.    I can tell you from experience that they're looking for interesting, relevent content, fairness, accuracy, reason, entertainment, and frequency.  After you've demonstrated some of your writing, you might be offered the chance to blog on the Register.  This is how it works.  I've written three different blogs for the Register, and two before I began working with them.

If you want some more free advice, give me a ring at 419-621-0169.  (It's in the book - no secret.)

You'll likely get nowhere hiding out anonymously, asking smug questions and acting indignant that nobody from their staff recognizes your genius writing abilities from your occassional story commenting.  (Many of which are obsessive personal attacks on me - which I don't mind as I've said before - it just shows what you spend your time thinking and writing about)

Just trying to be real with you.

By the way:

Sanders writes in the print edition of the Sandusky Register.  This single blog post was a response to his print column.  My blog is the response.  (Not the other way around.)

Dude i Roc

@ Pundit: I think Mr. Sanders in PRINT creates balance. SR does the merry dance of "tit for tat" VERY well.

Cross

Pundit: Rufus is a writer who get's a lot of print room and free reign. Dubois is a blogger who gets a microscopic amount of web space.

Rufus is a partisan democrat who fit's right in with the MSNBC/Brutus Smith far left liberals.

Dubois is somewhat of a libertarian type who does not spout complete rhetoric.

Westerhold is a liberal. He also has his own Blog, as do many others on the Register. If you want more blogs then feel free to write the SR people and request them.

Stating the paper tilts right is silly. They are squarely on the Dem side, although they do try to be objective and do fairly allow many different voices.

@ bs: 

That “Birther Certificate” looks about as valid as Obie’s “Certificate of Live Birth” that his campaign printed up on a computer for the consumption of his gullible sheeple.   Who knew that there were laser printers in 1961?   Funny, I was born in Sandusky and my "birth certificate" has a whole lot more info printed on it like delivery doctor, etc.   Why can't citizens see a copy of his actual birth certificate?     I ain't sayin' that our first (and hopefully last) Kenyan-American President wasn't born in HI, I'd just like a little bit of confirmation.

There are many doctored (edited) photos just as there are many so called "edited" news releases to the public. Obama is a smoker. Is a photo required? No. I see a lot of doctored photos on the internet that show Obama smoking. Here is what I believe to be a real photo of Obama smoking when he was younger, probably in college.

You can view this particular photo and other young Obama photos on the website posted. You can also view some examples of fake or doctored photos of Obama smoking on the same website. http://www.examiner.com/city-hall-in-louisville/obama-smoking-photo-a-fake

Are crumpet crackers made by cutting crumpets into thin slices and baking them until crisp? (y'know, like bagel chips?)  Maybe they'd be good, but I haven't seen them in Kroger's yet.

Methinks that ol' Rufus' crumpet is cracked.

Does anybody have photos of an original 1961 era Obama's Hawaii birth certificate?  Those modern day copies of birth certificates could be as phony as those Obama smoking photos. I only want to see a photo copy of the ORIGINAL 1961 birth certificate of Obama's. The photo below shows an example of a 1961 Hawaii birth certificate to give you an idea of what I am looking for. I have already seen modern copies of Obama's birth certificate.

Time to face facts: 90% of the American voters are moderate right. Voters get upset when incombants make such statements as(paraphrased) Illegal aliens have a right to government financed  transportation to work. Heck I don't even have that right. Or the Federal government goes after Arizona for enforcing an exact copy of federal immagration law at the state level,or the fact that congress is discussing a 35% VAT tax on everything including food. Need I go one.

I have given up on the issue of Obama's birth in Mumbasa, the non transference of citizenship because his mom was too young, the fact that his dad's mother was there at the time, the multiple certified Kenyan Birth certs, and the lawsuit being thrown out of court because it "had no bearing on the election". All I can say is Arnold in 2012.

Massengill Wins...

Since we are back to phantom documents....... has anybody ever seen George Bush's Honorable Discharge Papers?  Dubious you are a trip suggesting that people who hide a smoking habit are pathological.  Didn't Rush have a illegal drug problem that he kept secret until he got busted?  What does that say about him or is Obama held to a different standard?  What does it say about the people that have to post fake photos to knowingly misrepresent issues?  By the way was it laundry day the other day because Rand Paul's thugs were not wearing their brownshirts!

Bryan Dubois

Eh...Rush Limbaugh has the same pathology.  Massengill, where did you get this idea that he's held to a different standard?

I'm serious about this:  Where did you get the idea that I hold them to a different standard?  Can you show me where that I made that statement?

Massengill Wins...

So you do agree that Rush is pathological?

Bryan Dubois

Rush and Obama are similar in that they suffer from addiction that they both try to hide.  Yes.  The awareness that they both have that the addiction is shameful demonstrates their pathology.  It's foolish to attack somebody for an addiction.  The only reason it was brought up was because Rufus attacked John Boehner for smoking, while his idol Obama smokes too.  Rufus clearly has a double standard.

1.  I never attacked Obama for smoking.  I simply pointed out that he does in fact smoke - the point being that Rufus has a double standard that he might not even be aware of.

2.  I never attacked Rush Limbaugh for his addiction either.

Massengill, you pretend that I have some left/right double standard when it comes to criticisms.  It's not there.

goofus

Way to go libtard, bring up the convicted felon Move On.Org plant at the Paul speech. He was merely following his orders from Herr Soros. Can you imagine what  the secret service would have done if it was Osama that was rushed. If tea partiers are Nazi's how can you explain the tea party emerging in Israel. A whole bunch of Israelis are fed up with Osama's prejudice of the jews and his devotion to Islam. What if Putin told the United States that because Alaska is so close, he forbids us from building any housing in Alaska. Say what you want about Rush, at least he is factual and and is documented to be correct 99.6% of the time.

6079 Smith W
@ Mr. Dubois:   To the best of our knowledge, Mr. Limbaugh is off Oxy, whereas Mr. Obama has admitted that he is “95% cured” of his smoking addiction.   (I’d still like to know more about that “alcohol moderation” issue.)   Also, unlike Mr. Obama, Mr. Limbaugh is not an elected bureaucrat and outside the scope of his microphone has little-to-no actual power.   Face it; we are tragically a society with a huge substance abuse problem.   For all our rules, regulations and prohibitions, the U.S. is the largest consumer of both legal and illegal drugs in the world.   ----------------   After the Russian Bolshevik Revolution, prominent Westerners would often visit the country and proclaim and write glowingly about the wonders of Communism to the outside world.   V.I. Lenin used the term, “useful idiots” to describe them.   In light of Mr. Sander’s overly sycophantic attitude toward Mr. Obama, I tend to paint him with the same epithet.

Democide. Look that word up and read about it. There are many websites that discuss that word. I have to wonder why Americans died fighting socialists and communists during wars. Yet American voters are allowing the Trojan Horse of communism to come to America. The Trojan Horse of communism is now here in the Unted States. Not a shot was fired to allow this Trojan Horse to come into this country. The voters through ignorance welcomed this Trojan Horse into our country. Why were wars in Vietnam, Korea and other battles fought? Did those soldiers fight those wars and battles in vain?

Massengill Wins...

Interesting......... calling the POTUS "pathological" is not attacking him?  Some people probably think it is pathological to be so fixated on the president.  Some probably think it is rather pathological to play the victim all the time especially when you fail to ignore your numerous attacks on others.

I'm truly sorry to report this, but two months ago 45% of the people surveyed thought Osama was a better president than Bush 43%. Newest poll, 48% polled thinks Bush was a better president than Osama43%

Salvatore

Brutus asks "where has Communism taken hold in this country?" Brutus, I didn't say that communism has taken hold. I said that the Trojan Horse of communism is now here in the Unted States. You probably heard about the Trojan Horse story during the Trojan war. Or a Trojan Horse virus that may load itself onto your computer. I like this definition of a Trojan Horse as it best expresses my thoughts. "Someone or something intended to defeat or subvert from within usually by deceptive means."

Here is the official website of the Communist Party of the USA. You may want to read it if you really care what is really happening to our once great country. http://www.cpusa.org/ and I will copy and paste a few things from the website because self rightious people like "gemini logic" thinks that I have an agenda. My agenda is that I love my country and don't like what has been happening to it the past 10 years.

"A better world is possible — a world where people come before profits. That’s socialism. That’s our vision. We are the Communist Party USA."

"If the grand alliance that elected Barack Obama comes out in full force to vote we can stop the Tea Party/Republican takeover and continue moving forward."

"Socialism will meet the needs of the great majority of our people and lay the basis for solving our social, economic and environmental problems."

"This activism will ensure millions will also march united to the polls on Nov. 2. to guard the change they voted for in 2008. Those who choose to stand in the way of this expression of the highest ideals of our nation, stand against the interest of the vast majority of the American people."

"Greetings comrades and friends. This weekend has convinced me yet again of two things: first, this world needs a strong Communist Party USA more than ever and second, I hate computers. We in the newly formed Internet Department are in solidarity with oppressed computer users everywhere. We love to hate computers and especially that damned Internet."

"We Communists believe that socialism is the very best replacement for a capitalist system that has served its purpose, but no longer meets the needs and requirements of the great majority of our people."

"The Marxist practice of reducing every crisis to overproduction and overaccumulation is correct, but if left there makes it difficult to understand this crisis. To gain such an understanding it is necessary to fold into our explanation financialization as well as neoliberalism and capitalist globalization. This triad largely determined the specific dynamics and specific path of the economy over the past three decades and the specific scope and specific character of the current crisis."

"Because of the election of Barack Obama, the American people in their great majority have a leg up, but there is still a long way to go. To his credit, the new president is off to a quick start."
 

 

 

 There is a lot to read on the USA Communist Party's website. My question is why the Communist Party thinks so highly of Obama. I can agree to some socialism. Remember that word democide? Remember that word.

Illinois Soldiers Wait for Ballots. Prisoners Get Hand Delivery.
Big Government ^ | October 19, 2010
 

Posted on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 5:56:39 PM by La Lydia

Over 35 counties in Illinois missed the deadline to mail military ballots to our soldiers defending America. But in Chicago, county election officials have taken special steps to ensure that no inmates at the Cook County Jail are unable to cast a ballot. The Chicago Board of Elections hand delivers ballots to the jail.

They don’t even wait for the inmates to apply – they bring the applications with the ballots! Over 2,600 inmates have cast ballots so far – strikingly similiar to the 2,600 soldiers who will likely not recieve a ballot for the Nov 2 election.

 

Disgraceful does not begin to describe the Illinois Election system.

 

Brought to you by Obama and his cronies from Cook County. Disenfranchise ou servicemen while rewarding felons. What Would Rufus Do.

brutus smith

Posted by Oscar Avila at 12:30 p.m.

Six Illinois counties will wait longer to receive absentee ballots for the Nov. 2 election from citizens serving in the military or living overseas under an agreement announced today by the Department of Justice.

Boone, Hancock, Jersey, Massac, Schuyler and St. Clair counties sent out absentee ballots more than two weeks later than federal law requires. Under the agreement, those counties would extend the Nov. 14 deadline to receive absentee ballots by four or five days. Voters from those counties will also have until Election Day, Nov. 2, to postmark their absentee ballots. That's one more day than the rest of the state.

Some Republican candidates and the state Republican Party had made the ballot delays a campaign issue, focusing on military service members they said would be disenfranchised.
 

The Department of Justice filed suit in federal court to enforce the agreement but both the federal government and Illinois State Board of Elections have agreed to the details.

An additional 29 counties missed the Sept. 14 deadline to send out ballots overseas by less than two weeks. Those counties would not have to extend their deadline for receiving ballots because state law builds in a 14-day cushion after Election Day to process incoming overseas ballots, a Justice Department spokeswoman said.

The Department of Justice has intervened in 10 states, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia to ensure that military service members and other U.S. citizens living overseas would have adequate time to submit absentee ballots on time.

In a statement, Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez praised the agreement with Illinois officials that would let voters "know that their votes will be counted."

Dan White, executive director of the Illinois State Board of Elections, said today he is confident that the agreement will ensure that all absentee votes are counted.

Then how did libtards lose their memory? While being heckled at a blumenthal fund raiser Osama came up with a good one. By the way, why is Odama campaigning in states that were supposed to be a sure lock for democraps, but i digress. His response to some of the heckling was that Okama and his party were funding aids research and the other side is not. Excuse me but with a few of my tax dollars in there I'm funding aids research. Then I remembered being angry at Bush for all the money he gave for aids in africa so my next post is part of an article from the Washington Times.  But then again all us tea partiers are racist as well as the republicans.

however, obamass doesn't think so.  matter of fact obamass believes that he has done more for aids than bush!  see statement below.

"Not long into the Obama's stump speech, he was heckled by AIDS activists, whose presence clearly rattled him. "

"Excuse me, excuse me -- let me just say this," the president scolded. "Young people! You've been appearing at every rally we've been doing, and we are funding global AIDS, and the other side is not."

No matter how you wanna slice it, that "certificate of live birth" ain't a birth certificate and a mule ain't a horse.

Heck, Bernie Madoff had people believing for 20 yrs, that he knew the "secrets of Wall St." and could create 10% annual ROI regardless of market conditions. I coulda told you that it ain’t possible.

The skeptic in me likens to Reagan - Trust, but verify. Circumstances surrounding Obie's birth haven't been verified to my satisfaction.

“Pipe”? Are you speaking from personal experience with use of the Obie hopium pipe?

 @ Duhast:

So "proof" is now reduced to a web based newspaper birth announcement? Other than the fact that it was perhaps printed - what does it prove?

Why all the seeming game of hide and seek? Let’s see a @#$% registered birth certificate; game over - case closed.

Why are Obie’s forces spending thousands of dollars in lawyer fees to keep it out of the public realm?

Ever heard of the phrase: Beyond any reasonable doubt?

See the definition of the word agnostic and just live with the "fact" that there are those who have doubt:

"Time machine"? If he had access to one, ol' narcissistic Obie woulda made himself king. LOL.

So Winston do you ever want to see GWB's discharge papers?   Seems like that was never proven.  Why go after Obama and let Bush slide.  If indeed Bush was AWOL....... shouldn't he have been removed from office?  As far as Obama he has already released a certificate of live birth.  Once you right wingers got the birth certificate you would probably find another reason to go after him.  Sad but true.

When Bush was POTUS did you call for the release of his discharge papers?  What does it matter?  For starters he should be prosecuted for being AWOL and he should repay the money spent to train him for starters. Why can't you be consistent?  Or can't you admit you are a hypocrite?

Duhast
Winston, Now the newspaper announcement is fake??? Which other presidents did you demand a birth certificate from? To insinuate that the copy of the birth certificate shown is a fake must be some sort of “grasping at straws” attempt to invalidate Obama’s presidency. Does it make you feel better in your head? Do you think the congress is going to remove him from office? What’s the point constantly making this outrageous claim? It’s been debunked numerous times.   http://www.factcheck.org/electio...   I’m guessing, that since his “real” birth certificate must not be in existence, such things as his drivers license, passport, federal security clearance as a US senator, official Illinois and ballot submission were all just handed to him because they liked his smile.

When I went to get my driver's permit (back in the day) I needed a birth certificate.  We brought a certificate from the hospital that my mom thought was a birth cirtificate.  They made us go to the court house and get an official embossed birth cirtificate copy. 

Have you ever gotten a passport?  You have to send in that original copy.  They do not accept photo-copies.  Then they return it you you with the passport.  Assuming Obama is not a citizen, then he could not have gotten a US passport for travels abroad before and after becoming a senator.

Troll? We'll kinda sort of, I do so enjoy riling up libtards in hopes of converting some uniformed citizens into the fold of conservatism. Sinner? A definite yes! For awhile I was like Charlie Sheen's character in "Two and a Half Men". Out grew the Charlie Sheenism but never my conservativism. In college I was a flaming liberal but after going to work for a living I grew up.

Oh by the way, we attack at dawn tomorrow.

Oy!! Mama Mia!! Pastor Ron!! Where have you been? Still crying because the Supreme Being took all the money that you tossed into the air? I thought that your sermon was very funny. It goes well with the photo of your church that I posted a couple of weeks ago. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qo9kJZvYBB0

Reading Sunday's paper I see that Mattie stated "I found myself tamping down my bleeding liberal heart......"   Proof that this paper is biased. The same editor who backed McClung as the best police chief now says pick Kaptur. Such a biased statement from a liberal. Oh, and don't vote for that repuke judge Yarbrough. Vote for Howdy Doody or anybody else than Yarbrough. I checked up on Yarbrough and found some very negative information about him. Don't give Tone or Binnette any courtesy votes. They are unopposed. Too many courtesy votes keep others from running for judge.

I checked up on Yarbrough, too, and NEGATIVE isn't the word for it. As for Binette-----I would NEVER in a million years ever give HIM a courtesy vote! 

Julie R.

It was said that after Binette was elected the first time ( the 4th judge that wasn't supposed to cost the taxpayers a dime )  he gave his entire staff generous 30% raises. Wonder if he will again after this election? Remember how he also arrogantly gave his well-deserving magistrates, Christopher Stallkamp (choke) and the other one a big raise over the objections of the county commissioners?Binette has showed his true colors right from the start. 

Salvatore

The Ragister and Mattie sure did remove this particular story really fast from the top comments on the main page. Maybe because the newer comments were not politically correct?

Salvatore

Just watch all of the clueless people give Binette courtesy votes because they have no idea how to vote. They go to the polls and have no idea what is on the ballots and then go eeny meeny miny moe and vote blindly. They think that a ballot has to be filled in completely. Most people have short memories. Remember this story about King Binette? "Common Pleas Judge Roger Binette has become the first Erie County judge since 1989 to issue a court order to set his budget, a move that didn't sit well with the Erie County Commissioners. But commissioners criticized him for raising the pay of his two magistrates by $7,000 apiece and compared him to a quarterback deserting his team during a football game" http://www.sanduskyregister.com/2009/jan/14/erie-county-judge-issues-court-order-set-his-budget  Don't give courtesy votes. Courtesy votes discourage  others from running for office. If an unopposed incumbent gets over 50% of the votes from those who bother to vote, it shows confidence to that incumbent. If the incumbent only gets 40% courtesy or confidence votes, then a future candidate may think that they might have a better chance of winning because of the 60% non-courtesy votes or lack of confidence votes, in essence a no vote to the incumbent.

That's why I get absontee ballots. That way, I can sit at home and do proper research on every item.
