Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freepi – let the recriminations begin!

Good morning, everybody!
Well, the numbness has worn off,and the Freeperatis’ wounds are beginning to hurt.
Let’s suit up and pry the lids off some still-bubbling post-election anguish.

First up – former Fearless Leader gets off a good one:

Bush “I regret saying somethings I

“I am proud
to be the commander in chief of people who are so selfless and so courageous
that they would volunteer to serve our country in a time of war,” he said. “I’m
proud when I see people feed the hungry. I’m proud when I’m in Africa and see
volunteers helping those citizens dying of HIV/AIDS.”

“I remember the
conversation I had with my predecessor Bill Clinton,” Bush said. As a matter of
fact, [I] called him yesterday and said, ‘Bill, I’m getting ready to meet with
the new president, and I remember how gracious you were to me. I hope I can be
as gracious to President-elect Obama as you were to me.’ “

To: rudman
What about regretting NOT sayng things he SHOULD HAVE
said?

In response to an earlier reply, one Freeper gathers the shreds of decency lying about and attempts to make a garment out of them:

To: rudman
“he is not perfect, and does not pretend to be – only Jesus
Christ can claim perfection – he did keep America safe, even though many
Americans at time did not deserve that safety.”

That is his job, i.e., keep
America safe. And the idea that “many Americans at time did not deserve that
safety” is detestable. Every American deserves to be defended regardless of
where they stand poltically. I suggest you read the Constitution.

Detestable??? Me thinks
not. Traitors do NOT deserve the protection provided by a country they are
trying to destroy. These are the folks being referred to.If you think these
type of folks deserve the same constutional rights patriots and citizens enjoy
you are on the wrong board. Try DU.

Shepard Smith, A Giant Embarrassment
For Fox News

AJAY

Shepard Smith
has long been an embarrassment for those of us who look to Fox News for
reliability and intelligence. He always has been very unsophisticated and shows
no sign that he does any homework to keep himself minimally informed. Study
after study, including from liberal sources like the Washington Post and the Pew
Foundation, have demonstrated the Obama bias of the MSM. He screams
“preposterous” at his guest who points this out. Aggressiveness like his
combined with a lack of intelligence is a witch’s brew.
For Shepard to know
nothing about the MSM Obama bias is truly bewildering. What country does he live
in? And to add insult to injury, the FNC Judge pipes up with support for this
absurdity. I don’t really believe the Judge believes what he said in order to
prop up an over-matched Smith.
With Brit Hume, as sophisticated as any
contemporary journalist around, retiring from FNC, and Smith too dense to
understand his own intellectual limitations, things don’t seem to be too bullish
for the Fox News Channel. It’s truly sad.

To: AJAY
I always pegged Shep as a liberal. This closes the
case.

Shame on John McCain for Not
Defending Sarah Palin

After every failed
campaign, the losers analyze the defeat with the hope of discovering What Went
Wrong so the mistakes aren’t repeated. It’s a process that is absolutely
necessary in order to learn and succeed in the future.
When the controversy
started swirling before the voting had even commenced, mostly from moderate,
ostensibly intellectual corners, the criticism seemed self-serving at worst and
ill-timed at best. Many writers discredited themselves. Far from being
foresighted (a blind man could see the direction the McCain campaign was going),
they showed themselves to be opportunists with little restraint or moral courage
in the face of almost certain defeat. Rather than do what they could to possibly
stop the stampede, they spooked the horses.
That was two weeks ago. Today,
it’s time for rigorous examination and assessment. And boy, are the McCain
staffers, unchecked by John McCain, assessing. Here are some of their
conclusions: They have decided that rather than specific failed policies (can
anyone, anywhere, to this day articulate McCain’s plans for the economy?) or
strategies (Mr. Nice Guy) or leadership (running around like a headless chicken
and suspending the campaign to participate in doomed negotiations), the real
problem was Sarah Palin. No rigorous self-examination. Instead, they did what
the least savory sorts do: find a scapegoat.

THis surprises you? Why?
John McCain is a spineless man with
serious character flaws. All of his heroic service for his Country aside, he has
absolutely nothing going for him. He can look to his “Gang of 16” and the MSM
for fawning all over him to boost his ego. The man is an embarassment to the
Republican Party. He is the biggest RINO of all time.

Winners, we all know from a
lifetime of post-Super Bowl commercials, go to Disneyland.
Losers, at least
in this election cycle, apparently go to the Caribbean.
As the Associated
Press’ David McFadden reports:
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – When Joe Six-pack
suffers a severe setback, he might cry in his beer. The Republican elite could
be found this week on a Caribbean cruise after being stung in the Nov. 4
elections.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Tennessee Sen.
Fred Thompson joined policy analysts and 700 subscribers who want to revive the
Republican Party on the cruise hosted by the National Review, a conservative
magazine.
~ snip ~
“No one’s jumped overboard,” Fowler quipped as
passengers disembarked in Old San Juan. “This is a forward-thinking group.”

Thompson, whose own bid for the GOP nomination was short-lived, tersely
answered a few questions from shoreside journalists before walking up the narrow
cobblestone streets in shorts and sneakers. He called the cruise a family
vacation, and said he is not planning another White House run.
~ snip ~

This cruise, the 21st hosted by the National Review, mixes leisure and
politics, but Fowler said there are no panels about John McCain’s running mate.

Most of the passengers booked oceanview and veranda cabins at $2,400 to
$3,000 per person, according to the Cruise Authority, the U.S. company that
arranged the trip. The ship is stopping in Turks and Caicos Islands, Puerto
Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Bahamas before returning to Fort
Lauderdale, Florida this weekend.

Gingrich says GOP is
outmatched

How bad off is the Republican Party
right now? Ask Newt Gingrich.
“The Republican Party right now is like a
midsize college team trying to play in the Superbowl,” Gingrich told me
Wednesday. “It is pretty hard to say our losses were because of John McCain’s
campaign. McCain performed way above plausibility compared to where the
Republican president was in the polls. We have to look honestly at what went
wrong.”
Gingrich, Republican speaker of the House from 1995 to 1999,
declined say who he wanted as the next chairman of the party. He said his main
concern was the rise of what he called the “modern left,” which just a few years
ago was thought to be moribund in this country but now looks alive and kicking.

Gingrich said the fundraising capacity of the left in the last election
proved astonishing and far outstripped what Republicans were able to gather.
“The modern left has gotten that large,” Gingrich said.
The question now,
Gingrich went on, is whether Barack Obama intends to govern from the left or
not.
“Does Barack Obama want to govern from the center, which his Grant Park
speech implied, or govern from the left?” Gingrich said. “Does he want to govern
through (Harry) Reid and (Nancy) Pelosi or govern through a centrist majority,
in which case he will get a substantial number of votes in the House and Senate
but he will make the left unhappy.”
Gingrich said that the best thing the
Republican Party could do right now is stop worrying about the Republican Party.
“We need to worry about the nation,” Gingrich said. “Wal-Mart doesn’t get ahead
by attacking Sears but by offering better value.”

Wal-mart doesn’t get ahead by attacking Sears, but by importing cheap shit from China and turning its stores into serfdoms, but that’s beside the point.
Let’s see how this plays in Freeperville, shall we?

William Doyle, a tough-talking Vietnam War veteran
who helped lead a decorated platoon that killed hundreds of unarmed civilians in
a case concealed by the Pentagon for decades, died Thursday in Springfield, Mo.
He was 75.
Mr. Doyle was a team leader on the Army’s famous Tiger Force in
1967 when some members began executing women and children in a bloody rampage
that lasted seven months.
Mr. Doyle bragged that he shot so many civilians
that he lost count.
“We killed anything that moved,” he told The Toledo
Blade for a 2004 series. “My only regret is that I didn’t kill more.”

  1. Does “the alter of zero” mean Obama? Think the iconic O.
    That’s fantastic! I’m glad being delusional doesn’t stifle Freepi creativity.

  2. Wow, they wanna torpedo the NR cruise? That’s just unexpected. I would think they’d all be bemoaning the Big O raising their taxes so they couldn’t afford to go with them.
    But I’m not an expert in batshit-insanism. Don’t wanna be, either. I’ll leave that to Tommy.
