Maybe the Dems Believe Their Own Lies

Posted by Mark on March 20, 2010

I’ve worked with delusional clients for twenty years. Listening to Obama now makes me think he’s not lying…at least now.

One of Clinton’s talents was an ability to compartmentalize the truth, allowing him to temporarily believe his own lies. It requires a master liar to do that.

Obama is not a master liar of clintonian proportions. He has now fallen into one of the many traps along the path to becoming a Master Liar. He believes his own lies. He’s told the story so many times that he now believes it’s true.

This makes him far more dangerous than Bill Clinton. It makes Obama delusional. And while most delusional people are not dangerous, most delusional people are not leaders of the free world.

I pray there are members of his party who do not share his delusions, and can look past the lies. It’s the only chance this nation has to remain free.

Charlie Brown and Lucy? Maybe

Posted by Mark on March 20, 2010

This is a great piece on why the House Dems don’t trust the Senate Dems. Very innocent in it’s own way.It strikes me that a better analogy is rival Mob families in on the same crime. Remember: There is no honor among thieves, especially political ones.

Lucy and Charlie Brown are shown during Christmastime.OUR GOVERNMENT

Sean Hannity and the Freedom Alliance: A Huge Story if True

Posted by Mark on March 20, 2010

A huge hat tip to Gun Toting Liberal for this bombshell.

I thought long and hard about rather to post this story. Debbie Schussel is a pretty reliable source, and it sure looks like she did her homework.

In fact, less than 20%–and in two recent years, less than 7% and 4%, respectively–of the money raised by Freedom Alliance went to these causes, while millions of dollars went to expenses, including consultants and apparently to ferry the Hannity posse of family and friends in high style. And, despite Hannity’s statements to the contrary on his nationally syndicated radio show, few of the children of fallen soldiers got more than $1,000-$2,000, with apparently none getting more than $6,000, while Freedom Alliance appears to have spent tens of thousands of dollars for private planes.  Moreover, despite written assurances to donors that all money raised would go directly to scholarships for kids of the fallen heroes and not to expenses, has begun charging expenses of nearly $500,000 to give out just over $800,000 in scholarships.

In February 2009, a well-known conservative writer sent me this, about a friend at FOX News:

The guy went on to tell me about Hannity’s “Freedom Concerts,” which are staged across the country with the proceeds going to children of slain soldiers. Of course, as the guy tells it, there’d be a lot more money every concert to go to the cause if Hannity didn’t demand–and get–use of a Gulfstream 5 plane to fly him and his family/entourage to the concerts; a “fleet” (that’s the word the guy used) of either Cadillac or Lincoln SUVs for him and his family/entourage; and several suites at really expensive hotels for him and his family/entourage. The promoter apparently values Hannity’s star demands at well over $200,000 per event. The source says he heard that Oliver North pulled Hannity aside at one of the concerts and told him that this had to stop. But that may mean that, from now on, Hannity has to fly on a G4 instead of a G5, gets only a few luxury SUVs, and two or three suites.

The post gets worse. If true, this would end Sean Hannity’s career. The folks who listen to Talk Radio will tolerate a lot from the hosts. Rush Limbaugh’s drug addiction is a good example. Willful deception at the expense of our troops and their families would not be tolerated by anyone.

Freedom Alliance’s response is here. Debbie Schlussel is right. It’s weak, and hopefully will just be the opening salvo in it’s defense.
