Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Get Used To Disappointment edition

Good morning, folks!

Sorry about the outage and the subsequent flood of queued posts. Our host was brought down by a DDoS attack – hopefully it’s mitigated, and the infected zombie machines’ IPs are blocked from the internet forever:

“Hey – I can’t get to any internet sites! I wanted to download some more virus-laden games and ‘special offers’ !”

OK – to business.

Seriously – it has to be hard to be a Freeper. I’m not talking about the endless freepathons, the enormous pressure to be the first to post the fauxrage of the day – I’m talking about the constant disappointment.

When you’re a Freeper, there is no “happily ever after” – your heroes turn on you, your successes turn to ashes – there’s never a victory. Even “successes” like Dubya slide into obilvion as the mists of hoo-hah die down and the stinking reality squats in the noonday sun like a run-over toad.

So – some of the recent disppointments, in reverse order.

First –Joe The Bummer!

U.S. conservative ‘Joe the Plumber’ a union man? ‘You betcha,’ he says

(Reuters) – An Ohio man who rose to fame as “Joe the Plumber” by challenging then-presidential candidate Barack Obama on tax policy in 2008 has taken a unionized job with one of the U.S. Big Three automakers, he said on his website.

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, a conservative, announced on Sunday that he recently had the “fortune of being hired by a great company”, Chrysler Corporation, where all workers must be United Automobile Workers union members.

Never ever put your faith in a politician, or anybody who wants to be one. You will be disappointed.

Understood. It was a rhetorical question. My point is why did the guy have to make a public announcement, anyway? He simply made himself a tool for the left. Nice going, Joe!

SEAN HANNITY: You’re really taking on a lot of issues. One of them is outreach, the second one is the NSA, the third going after the president. Do you agree with Ted Cruz when he said Rand and I are good friends. Do you agree with that statement?

SEN. RAND PAUL: We always have been good friends. I’m not real excited about him mischaracterizing my views and, you know, I won’t let that pass. I think that, you know, sometimes people want to stand up and say, ‘Hey, look at me, I’m the next Ronald Reagan.’ Well, almost all of us in the Republican party are big fans of Ronald Reagan. I was a 13-year-old kid when my dad was a delegate for Reagan, I was there in Kansas City. I’ve always been a big fan of peace through strength.

I think America should and has a responsibility around the world and really, virtually all the opinions that have been coming from Republicans are somewhat the same on this. That Putin should be condemned. He should be isolated. I favor sanctions against Putin. So, for people to characterize that as somehow not being the Reagan position, I think they need to have a re-reading of Reagan, frankly. Reagan was famous for —

The leftist media and Karl Rove types are popping the popcorn over this crap. Levin or Palin needs to call both Cruz and Paul to the table and have them bury the hatchet, NOW.

I don’t mind healthy infighting, as we conservatives are not sheep who will blindly vote for Republicans like Dem supporters do. But 2016 is way off and we need to keep the focus on Obama and his communist policies.

Because the Ron Paul Lunatics stuff the ballot boxes every year. If you would do your homework, you would find that Ron Paul won most CPAC polls, it was his LUNATICS stuffing the ballot boxes.

No, it’s your claim so it’s your homework. Coming from Chicago, maybe you aren’t aware of that. So let’s see some links to YOUR lunatic contentions.

“Paulites” streaming into the main auditorium to hear him rail against government overreach and neoconservativism on Friday afternoon. In many respects, his win in the CPAC poll seemed pre-ordained — his band of followers having a well-earned reputation for flooding polls and forums like these.

What it portends for a possible 2012 presidential run is anyone’s guess. Paul had a similar cult-like following during the 2008 election, only to garner a relatively small chunk of the actual vote.

No, no, no – you misunderstood. I didn’t say please spew childish insults because I dared asked you to present evidence for your slander about stuffing ballot boxes.

What I said was, please provide the evidence.

You know, evidence – the thing you can’t provide.

The thing you replace with a filthy mouth.

Rick Santorum at CPAC: Republicans Need to Be More Like Pope FrancisChristian Post ^ | 03/09/2014 | Napp Nazworth

Posted on 3‎/‎10‎/‎2014‎ ‎10‎:‎41‎:‎48‎ ‎AM by SeekAndFind

Republicans should learn from Pope Francis how to better communicate their message, Rick Santorum, former Pennsylvania senator and 2012 Republican presidential candidate, argued Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Republicans focus too much of their message on attracting business owners rather than workers, attacking President Barack Obama and explaining what they are against rather than what they are for, Santorum claimed. Instead, Santorum urged Republicans to reach out to those who are hurting and to talk about how their policies will help them. And to do that, learn from Pope Francis.

“I think we need to take a lesson from someone who is maybe the most popular person in the world right now — Pope Francis,” he said.

Like Francis, Santorum wants Republicans to reach out to those who are suffering, and to talk about their positive policy agenda.

Francis is “going out there and not talking about what the Christian faith is against. He’s going out there and talking about what we’re for. He hasn’t changed a single policy. He won’t change a single policy. But what he’ll do is he’ll go out there and talk about the good news to a hurting world because he believes that is what the world needs. It needs the Lord,” he said.

While the Republican Party is not a religion, Santorum clarified, it can learn to better communicate its message by observing Francis and explaining to those who are struggling how Republican policies can help them.

“Well, we’re not a religion,” he continued, “and we’re not going to go out there and talk about the good news. But what we need to do is go out and talk about the news of a good America and what that good America can be. We need to paint a picture for people. We need to use a brush where they see themselves in the painting. They see a part of their life, where they hear someone or see a policy and say, ‘that’s me.’ We need to be the ‘that’s me’ party.”

Courtesy of C-Span, you can watch the full speech below.

It seems like the Pope Francis is constantly having a crew following him after the ‘Clean-up on Aisle 12’ announcements.Maybe he is deliberately misquoted by the Media, or maybe his comments are taken out of context, but a lot of his messages have been backtracked as either being mistranslated, misquoted, or not what he meant…
Not exactly the communicator you want to emulate.

Yep – that’s it. He was misquoted.
In fact, the Media quoted him as saying :
“Some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world. This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system. Meanwhile, the excluded are still waiting.”
…when what he REALLY said was:
“The point is ladies and gentlemen that greed, for lack of a better word, is good.”
Happy to clear that up for you.

To: SeekAndFind

He’s going to run again.
It’s what he does.
I hope the Huckster gets in, just to knock Santorum OUT.

Yes, let’s all emulate the Pope in his redistributionist violation of the Tenth Commandment, which naturally leads to violations of the Ninth which quickly breaks down the Eighth.

Great examples, Rick.

I voted for Santorum in the primary but my enthusiasm was considerably dampened when he he pronounced George Zimmerman guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin, saying that Zimmerman had a”very sick mind” and that his motive was “malicious.”

2. He is an unapologetic socially conservative. Social conservatives know that he has taken the arrows for his views. They trust him to stand for those views.

No we don’t, Santorum has always been a fake, he was devoted to Arlen Specter and never quit supporting him, until finally he had to become a democrat to get Santorum to stop supporting him.

Freshman Rep. Vance McAllister (R-La.), who touted his Christian values while campaigning, says he is the man seen in a grainy video, passionately kissing a woman in his office two days before Christmas. He said, “There’s no doubt I’ve fallen short and I’m asking for forgiveness”

Yes, the duck people endorsed this guy. They are fools for doing so and anyone who cares about the endorsements of reality tv show actors are also fools. This guy was the RINO in the race and was endorsed by Black democrat leaders. He’s made troubling statements on a number of key issues that expose his true colors.

When all this was pointed out to the freepers that supported him over Conservative State Senator Neil Riser they had no reply. All they did was attack Riser because he was endorsed by the EEEEEEEEEVIL Bobby Jindal and says that this jerk was “tea party”.

And now he’s embarrassed the party by being caught with his hand in the cookie jar. He needs to go. Good luck getting rid of him with Louisiana’s stupid election system. If he faces a runoff with another Republican the democrats can vote for him, just like they did in the special election.

To be fair, Vitter has a spotless Senate voting record, and Livingston’s house record was good.

This clown McAllister is and was a RINO from the start. I said so, but no one wanted to hear it.

    Ya know, sometimes there is just so much insanity that you can’t reply to all of it.
    RE: “To: Oliviaforever/Never ever put your faith in a politician, …” Uh, since when was Joe the Plummer a REAL politician? I use “REAL” both in the sense of him being really what he was projecting as well as really being a politician.
    And the thought that Palin somehow has the power to bring the two feuding children together and have them make nice? Aren’t they against the idea of an unelected shadow govt?
    In any case, wishing you the best on your imminent birthday and hope it is a happy occaision. But if you take a break, I hope you’ll come back with an analysis of the FR and Nevada rancher Bundy.
