Hillary lip-synced more than Beyoncé
Orange County Register (Ca), by Mark Steyn

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/25/2013 2:55:14 PM

If I´m following this correctly, according to one spokesperson for the Marine Corps Band, at Monday´s Inauguration Beyoncé lip-synced to the national anthem but the band accompanied her live. However, according to a second spokesperson, it was the band who were pretending to play to a tape while Beyoncé sang along live. So one or the other of them was faking it. Or maybe both were. Or neither. I´d ask Chuck Schumer, the master of ceremonies, who was standing right behind her, but he spent the entire performance staring at her butt. If it was her butt, that is.

A funny article. With Obama, you don´t know where reality begins or where it ends. It´s all part of the narrative - part fact, part fiction...a mass of confection.

The scary thing is when they combine a lot of fiction with a little bit of fact and then try to pass the whole thing off as fact. This is where the danger truly lies. It´s government by mass deception.

"Obama is peerless at making a song and dance about tunes nobody´s whistling..."

Obama is all about misdirection. He plays to the emotions of the lowest common denominator while illegally carrying out the wishes of his puppet master, ValJar. If we had a competent congress and an unbiased supreme court, this kenyan would have been sent packing in 2009.

"No clothes!" says Steyn in so many words. Why, no one in this administration even wears real underwear! Yet, so many Americans exalt their magnificent adornments.

Steyn has surpassed even vintage Coulter as the rhetorical avenger. His mockery is brilliant - just what we need to pull an Alinsky-style coup - ´Ridicule is man´s most potent weapon´. If only we could translate his multi-syllabic structure to something that could be understood by the Lofos.

Great writing Mark!

Two depressing quotes from the article:

"A couple of days later, it fell to the 45th president-in-waiting to encapsulate the ethos of the age in one deft sound bite: What difference does it make?"..."Four Americans are dead, but not a single person involved in the attack and the murders has been held to account. Hey, what difference does it make?"

Enough to make you "give up and die," right?

But then the good news starts to trickle in.

1) A sportsman show in PA had to be cancelled when gun-owners, the NRA and exhibitors boycotted it in protest against restrictions imposed on any mention of the AR-15.
2) A court ruling declared Obama´s ´recess´ appointments to the NLRB and elsewhere to be "unconstitutional."
3) Bill Maher, believe it or not, states that "there are a lot of dirtbags in this country." [H/T to RCP]
http://tinyurl.com/a5ubk3s
4) The 40th annual March for Life is taking place. And the good Dr. Krauthammer predicts that it will still be taking place 40 years from now. [Please, dear God, make it so.]
5) There´s at least one muskrat in southern Maryland who is a little less grumpy.

Mockery, ridicule, brutal humorous sarcasm !
That´s the next step for all of us bright citizens, and Mark Steyn can lead the way!
Mark proves in his writings that whenever it all becomes absurd, ridicule is the best medicine and with mockery and ridicule, the whole problem becomes bloodless. Obama and Feinstein want gun fighting in the streets.
They are violent prone, violent instigating idiots. Steyn, Lucianne, PJ O´Rourke (where are you PJ come out of the closet ! please) can laugh them out of their fake seriousness and all their media tuned lies.
Diane Sawyer is equally responsible, all of the Diane Sawyers, that is, for her acting skills in the news every night, her mock seriousness, her cowardice to never speak out, never say anyting that would offend the overlobbyed Beltway millionaires.
Maybe Diane needs a new 24/7 director. This communist stuff is getting really boring.
Mark Steyn is a refreshing model for obeserving the frightening stupidity of these so-called leaders, and for commenting on their ridiculous ways with ridicule, sarcasm, mockery, little jokes, big jokes> Anything to show them as comedy versions of Hitler and Stalin (who took away all the guns). Is that enough rant?

And so a congressional hearing – one of the famous "checks and balances" of the American system – is reduced to just another piece of Beltway theater. "The form was still the same, but the animating health and vigor were fled," as Gibbon wrote in "The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire."

It is too hard to be optimistic when the parallels are this clear.

´so Obama will always be cooler than a bunch of squaresville yawneroos boring on about jobs and debt and entitlement reform.´

The above quote comprises the best summary of the 2012 election by the best pundit in the business.

The question is: If we had a ´cool´ messenger delivering the exact same message that was delivered by the ´square´ with which we were stuck as our GOP candidate, might we have won? If no, then we have truly lost the country.

Chris Christie: Republicans don´t get anywhere

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Republican pundit Charles Krauthammer said that when Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy a week before the 2012 presidential election, he was essentially giving Obama a lap dance. “I think many Republicans are extremely upset with what was described in the press as giving Obama a bear hug,” Krauthammer said on Sunday in a debate with Obama strategist David Plouffe, according to Politico. “I saw it slightly differently, I thought it was more of like a lap dance. Not a phrase I would use on television, since the image is too disturbing.” Krauthammer did use

In a way it´s the oddest bit of ObamaCare propaganda we´ve seen so far. "This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered. This is what momentum looks like." To McGuinness´s credit, she does mean "literally" literally. The post

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.
