Do You Suppose That This Guy is an Obama Voter?

Is it just me, or does this guy look like the epitome of the Obama voter?

From The Smoking Gun:

Meet Corey Curtis.

The Wisconsin man, who has fathered nine children with six women, was ordered yesterday to cease procreating until he can support his numerous offspring.

At Curtis’s sentencing yesterday for bail jumping and failure to pay child support, Circuit Court Judge Tim Boyle told the 44-year-old Racine man that his frequent breeding was to be curbed as a condition of his three-year probation term.

According to the article, he owes about $90,000 in back child support.

I guess Sandra Fluke was right. We do need to get those contraceptives spread around STAT!

Other questions that occur to me: how many of his baby mommas are on food stamps and receive other government assistance? Do you suppose that they have cars, cell phones and flat screen tvs? Does he? Discuss among yourselves.

When it Comes to Women’s Rights, the Guy Barack Obama Supports Makes Todd Akin Look Like a Feminist

Do Sandra Fluke and Lena Dunham know about this?

As we discussed on yesterday’s show with our guest Daniel Greenfield of Sultan Knish, if you’re paying attention, you’ll notice a disturbing pattern in the way that the Obama administration deals with the turmoil in the Middle East. Bottom Line: The One sides with the Islamists. Consider Libya and Egypt. In both countries, the Obama administration kicked allies to the curb to help install Islamist regimes. Iran in June, 2009 was another story. In that case, Barack Obama didn’t want “to be seen as meddling” in another country’s affairs.

It’s indisputable that Obama is on the side of the Islamists. If his foreign policy decisions were not evidence enough, he wrote in his silly, boring, navel-gazing book, The Audacity of Hope, “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” I guess that the bright side is that, for once, he’s keeping a promise.

I picture B. Hussein watching Egyptian President, the Muslim Brotherhood’s own, Mohamed Morsi, deciding that he can dispense with the other two branches of government because he is effectively God, and thinking “That’s what I’m talking about!”

So, it’s no surprise that Barack is a Morsi fan, but I wonder if some of Barry’s biggest boosters, Lena Dunham and Sandra Fluke, and others of their ilk, know that their guy is supporting a regime that finds it intolerable to include a provision in its new constitution that prohibits child marriage and sex slavery. That’s Egypt today. From the British site, Inter Press Service:

An ultraconservative Salafi cleric recently sparked outrage among Egypt’s liberal circles when he attempted to justify his opposition to a proposed constitutional article that would outlaw the trafficking of women for sex.

Speaking on privately-owned Al-Nas satellite channel, Sheikh Mohamed Saad El-Azhary said he feared the proposed article could conflict with the local practice of child marriage. He explained that in Egypt, particularly in rural areas, there is a culture of marrying off girls as soon as they hit puberty.

“The important thing is that the girl is ready and can tolerate marriage,” El-Azhary declared.

He goes on to warn of just how far it could go if this radical, anti-child marriage provision is allowed to go forward.

He went on to protest proposed laws protecting women from violence, warning that if allowed to pass husbands could be prosecuted for beating their child brides or forcing themselves upon them.

“If you have intercourse with your wife against her will, she will be able to file a complaint against you,” he said. “That’s where things are headed.”

What’s next? Women driving? Leaving the house without the permission of a male relative? By the way, this guy is part of the group writing the new Egyptian constitution.

One of the great things about being a liberal is the ability to operate with a high degree of self-righteousness, free of any concern that the positions that you passionately defend are irreconcilably conflicting. You can be a feminist who wants freedom and choice for women, who should be seen as strong and independent, except that they expect someone else to pay for their contraceptives, and you can support a guy for president who endorses an Egyptian regime that doesn’t consider it a “legitimate rape” when a man forces himself on his wife.

No wonder liberalism is so popular among the intellectually lazy and/or challenged.

Also: Women’s equality absent from Egyptian constitution

Stupid is as Stupid Does. Is it Time to Repeal the 19th Amendment? Today on the Teri O’Brien Show

Watching America’s first affirmative-action president invoke his daughters in support of a cynical political ploy designed to appeal to women not only depressed me. It reminded me that I am not entirely opposed to repealing the 19th amendment, or at least given some of the results of recent elections, I would be willing to consider it. Sandra Fluke’s arrival on the public stage is supposed to be all about gender equality and yet, for this phony controversy to benefit Obama, all the worst stereotypes about female voters have to be true; specifically that we are emotionally-driven, mentally-challenged airheads eagerly waiting to be led by a demagogue deceiving us about what’s really going on. Are women really so clueless, or even so stupid, that we will vote for more crushing debt on future generations, more crony capitalist spending and more government intrusion into every aspect of our lives, including the power of life and death over every citizen, because someone wouldn’t give Sandra Fluke and her friends free stuff? The democrats seem to think so, and some recent polls suggest that they may be right.

If contraception concerns aren’t sufficient to attract the ladies, perhaps a little Hollywood razzle dazzle will do the trick. Move over Michael Moore and Leni Riefensthal: an Academy-Award winning documentary winner does his part to re-elect the One, and even liberal media types wonder how he can keep a straight face while describing it.

Or perhaps “Mighty Michelle” will give the campaign a boost. She’ll be bowling for dollars this week, and since the Fluke episode has renewed calls for “civility,” perhaps she shouldn’t take her husband along, lest he mention Special Olympics.

Join us Sunday for the rest of the story.

Once Again, Obama Has His Priorities Straight

While most Americans live in sheer terror of having to fill their gas tanks, Iran moves steadily toward the creation of a nuclear weapon, and our troops are being killed in Afghanistan over the burning of previously-defaced Korans, the president proved again last week that he knows what’s important;specifically, issuing another in a seemingly never-ending series of apologies to our enemies, raising ridiculous amounts of money for his campaign, and finishing the hachet job he started in January with the very willing assistance of “objective journalist”/democrat flack George Stephanapolous, who raised the burning issue of “contraception” at a New Hampshire debate.

The Lame Stream Media continues to try to distract voters from the naked coercion in Obamacare with its silly narrative about the GOP’s “War on Women,” as demonstrated by Republicans’ desire to eliminate “access” to contraception. They hope to use Rush Limbaugh as the poster boy for that completely phony charge, especially in the eyes of emotionally-driven suburban soccer mommies, most of whom can’t name their congressmen, but who are horrified by the bombastic talk show host’s being so “mean” to a “courageous,” innocent young girl, only 23 years old! Or wait …30, and with a long history of left-wing political activism. Whatever. Clearly, when discussing this issue and sadly, many others, facts and details don’t matter. Now that Rush has issued an apology, will the democrats be satisfied, and, as they like to say “move on?” Not bloody likely.

We’ll also learn a little of the inside story of what might have led Rush to use such inflammatory language. It’s a dirty, little secret, but one well known in the world of terrestrial radio: outrageous words sell.

Join us Sunday for the rest of the story.

What Romney Needs to Say About Romneycare-Show Notes: 2-26-12

You need this book!

Any truth to the rumor that if the Oscars go over 3 hours, Obama is going to show up and personally apologize?

Nancy Pelosi was right: we had to pass the bill, Obamacare, to find out what was in the bill. Now that we are, we are discovering an endless supply of nasty little surprises, which result in higher costs, rationing of care and many good doctors leaving the profession. Our special guest Grace-Marie Turner, president of the Galen Institute and author of the new book, Why Obamacare is Wrong for America, has been examining health care policy for over 15 years. She has some terrific advice for Mitt Romney. Let’s hope if he’s the nominee, he’ll take it. Listen to the interview to hear it. Ms. Turner’s appearance begins at ~40 minutes after the opening of the show. She makes clear that if we don’t treat Obamacare like one of those abortion survivors that B.Hussein was blithely willing to let die by defunding it and then repealing it, America as a free country is over. Note to John Boehner: remember what happened in 1996. Despite what we read in the revisionist history written by LSM, about Bill Clinton’s skillful defeat of Newt Gingrich, the real story is that Bob Dole did the El Foldo because he was afraid of what would happen when it was his turn to run for president. Moderates strike again! Don’t take my word for it. Liberal apparatchik Paul Begala agrees.

Second Amendment Update: Another weapon from Fast and Furious involved in murder of a federal agent. The parents of ICE agent Jaime Zapata were shocked to learn that the weapon trafficker was sentenced to prison in January. No one bothered to contact them! They are looking for answers. There’s one question we’d all like answered: Why is Eric Holder still Attorney General?

More than 200 attend concealed carry event in Rockford – Rockford, IL – Rockford Register Star (read the hilarious advice given to gun grabbers to women who are attacked. I say don’t bring a rat-tailed comb–who the heck has had one of those in the last 30 years?–to an attempted rape.)

Producer Thomas suggests a method to get the state of Illinois to join the other 49 and allow some form of concealed carry to law-abiding citizens, one that would be very effective; give Illinois pol Mike Madigan a commission on every bullet sold.

British journo Katty Kay, appearing on the 2/26/12 edition of Chris Matthews’ syndicated show, is mystified about why “Americans” are obsessed with non-issue of contraception. Gee, could it be that the Lame Stream Media, led by former dem operative George Stephanapolous, took its marching orders from the Regime back in January? (We were the first to point that out on our January 8 show.)

Best Performance by an Insufferable Gasbag in a Non-Supporting (as in supporting America) Role-it’s Oscar Sunday, after all

Nominees:

  • Barack Hussein Obama, who actually deserves a Lifetime Achievement in this category, but was nominated for his statement a couple of weeks ago that it “turns out” that pesky Constitution is a MUCH bigger problem than could have realized before he got into office. Really, “Professor?”
  • Tim “Turbo Tax” Geithner, falling back on the dem meme that paying taxes is patriotic, and the price of being an American. Does this statement mean that he’s plagiarizing from Joe Biden?
  • Warren Buffet, whether out of guilt or for ego gratification, allowing his secretary to be used as a shill for a false narrative about the “unfairness” of our tax system. Nice little lame happy talk routine, Warren and Debbie. Too bad it’s not true.
  • Liberal brain rot victim/MS-NBC host Melissa Harris Perry explains the GOP’s “War on Women” to Al Sharpton. It’s a national eating disorder. Who knew? Has anyone told Moochelle? The brilliant professor also weighed in on the movie “The Help.” I know that you will enjoy this excellent analysis The PJ Tatler » Why MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Pretends to Hate The Help.

Obama discovers new form of alternative energy: pond scum. No doubt that will be the answer to $5/gallon gas. Which campaign contributor owns an algae factory?

Caller Marathonpundit answers our request for alternative Oscar hosts, and suggests an excellent choice. He also updates us on his great reporting on the Occupy movement. Is that still around? As long as there are people who refuse to take their psych meds, there will be filthy misfits obstructing commerce, roaming the streets, screeching obscenities.

Never doubt me file: I told you I thought Billy Crystal would be lame, based on this montage I watched before yesterday’s show. Never doubt me.

Women Won’t Vote for Santorum, Chris? Wait-Not Even You?

Play

On yesterday’s edition of his fine “Hardball” program on the 24/7 televised insane asylum aka MS-NBC, Chris Matthews featured a clinic demonstrating again, as if we needed more proof that liberals have no sense of humor. Not only that, when forced to into the inevitable corner by the intellectual bankruptcy of their ideas, they resort to their default setting: OUTRAGE!

Chrissie got his panties in a bundle over a humorous comment from one of Rick Santorum’s major backers, Foster Friess, on Andrea Mitchell’s show yesterday.

Chris Matthews and Eleanor Holmes Norton Outraged (AGAIN) – 2-16-12 5_23 PM 2

[qt:http://teriobrien.com/media/chris-matthews-elanor-holmes-norton-outraged-2-16-12-5-23-pm.mov 480 240]

Chris also assured his audience, all 26 or so of us, that no women would vote for Rick Santorum.

Today, the unofficial members of Obama’s campaign staff, sometimes called “journalists” are spinning like tops, trying to position Cong. Darryl Issa’s hearing yesterday as more evidence of the GOP’s “war against women,” by expressing shock and outrage that no women appeared as witnesses at hearing that was about “contraception.” Of course, the fact that the hearing wasn’t about contraception, but was about the Regime’s trampling of the First Amendment, was never mentioned.

In their campaign to inflame the dumb rage of the low-information potential voters, there is no place for truth.
