Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Clarence sale edition

All righty, folks – this is going to be a Clarence clearance sale edition of Obsession, so we’ll start with a new one and go back for some old threads.

Let’s start with – Ted Cruz typos!

McCain Assures Incoming GOP Senators Won’t Be More Ted Cruz Types
Mediaite ^ | Nov. 11, 2014 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 11‎/‎11‎/‎2014‎ ‎3‎:‎25‎:‎12‎ ‎PM by PROCON

Senators John McCain and Ted Cruz don’t exactly have the best relationship. Cruz has said Republicans like McCain are why their party doesn’t do better, and McCain has not been shy about publicly dumping on Cruz, especially during last year’s government shutdown.

And in a new interview with Salon today, McCain wanted to make it clear that the incoming crop of Republicans that will give their party control of the Senate will not be Cruzes. McCain even claimed that a lot of the GOP Senate candidates who won are in the same mold as himself and Lindsey Graham.


Senator McCain, thank you for your Service, now RETIRE!

First of all, I’d like to note the increasing number of FR posts quoting sources like Mediaite, TPM, Salon (heh), etc.
If they keep exploring outside the wingnut media bubble, some of them might just develop some reasoning skills.

Amen, and take your brain dead daughter with you.

Or not…

I still wish there was an alternative conservative party we could go to.

Or better yet – an alliterative alternative putative demonstrative lucrative pejorative operative interrogative conservative party.
With an open bar.

McCain’s really going to be a problem going into ‘16. He’s that annoying douchebag that the media points to when they want to validate Democrat stances, and he gives them no shortage of ammunition to use against principled conservatives slavering nutjobs.

“McCain even claimed that a lot of the GOP Senate candidates who won are in the same mold as himself and Lindsey Graham.”

Now that’s a scary thought!

If true, the Demwits will be back in charge in 2016.

Apparently only Fox thinks its a big story.Just slightly bigger than the story they did about the 45th anniversary of Sesame Street? Or the story about how conversations at the dinner table can be good for a family? Or maybe the other endless fluff “news reports” they do that mean NOTHING?Fox has become as pathetic as the rest of them. They have taken the bait and fallen right in line with the propagandists.

What sense does it make to FORCE implementations

or clear or in Evidence.


Can no longer watch this nonsense.

This is not on the past Benghazi Attack
or the ongoing Islamic threat.
It is patting themselves on the back.

You see, the dems come out and say the whole thing is political theater, GOP doesn’t want to appear political, so they punt to the stupid dems at the first hearing and make it a worthless watch.

This is their 1st mistake, which does not bode well. McCarthy said the first hearing is where you grab people to listen to the next.

He was also right about that. I turned it off.

So the Republicans caved before the hearings even got started. There is no reason why they are waiting till after the elections. It’s been two years. I’m enormously disappointed in Gowdy.

Agree, and it seems like limited coverage unless you go on your computer. Everyone needs to see all of this instead of them putting on only limited coverage on TV so people can only see what they want them to see. Sounds like a deal and sell out to me. This wasn’t the purpose of these hearings. They should be televised full coverage for all to see.

McCarthy felt that it was very important to throw out red meat at the beginning because it is going to be a while before the next hearing.

People lose interest and that is what demoncrats want.

Gosh, can I stomach any more of FOX today?

They blew covering Jim Jordon, entirely, but gave plenty of Cummmings coverage, switched to regular programing, covered that fool boy prez’s speech, and now the fool, John F Kerry, who was in Viet Nam you know.

I’ve enjoyed all the FOX I can take today. Huge let down. %:O/

I despised Saddam’s police state, but the Islamic State would not exist under his ruleWashington Post ^ | Sept 21 2014 | Saif Al-Azzawi Posted on 9‎/‎21‎/‎2014‎ ‎10‎:‎46‎:‎09‎ ‎PM by WilliamIII

When people ask me how I feel about the latest events in Iraq, I tell them I feel sad. All these people — both Americans and Iraqis who have died since 2003 — died for nothing. And as the Islamic State insurgency unfolds, and as Iraq tries once again for a peaceful political transition, I’m mourning not just those who have died over the past decade, but for a country that I haven’t been able to recognize for a very long time.

Bush’s fault.

To: Vendome

Saddam was an enemy of the US who had a relatively stable regime, and was consequently a threat to the US. He regularly shot down US aircraft, and had acquired WMDs. Bush’s fault was trying to install a weak democracy in Iraq, which is now a puppet of Iran; Saddam’s government was the correct template, we just needed the leader to be pro-America.

While ISIS is certainly a threat, it would not have happened if the Iraqi region had a dictator who would crush that insurgency. Soetoro’s deliberate funding of ISIS is also a big problem. So the blame can fall on two Presidents, Bush for overestimating Iraqi competence and Soetoro for deliberately wanting ISIS to gain power, but disposing of Saddam was not a mistake.

Christians were far better off during Saddam’s regime. They didn’t experience the persecution that they did after the fall of the Ba’athists.

To: WilliamIII

Yes. Saddam kept the savages down, under his brutal rule. Giving them “democracy” was a farce. Savages don’t know how to use democracy. They need a brutal dictator.

At this point, I would like to post some quotes from THESE SAME FUCKING PEOPLE about invading Iraq :
Join Operation Infinite FReep / Rally for America! Free Republic has been rallying in support of our President and the war effort since shortly after the terrorist attack on America on September 11, 2001. Last year, as the inevitable war against Iraq drew closer, more and more of the “useful idiots” of the left began crawling out of the woodwork, organizing so-called “anti-war” protests.

To: VMI70

The evidence will be provided after Saddam turns in his sheet of lies saying he has no WMDs. To go public with this now would be stupid. However, Saddam has already started attacking the inspectors as agents of Israel and the United States. This is probably the prelude to him refusing to deliver a list that says he has no weapons of mass destruction.

The day he refuses to provide an honest list is the first day of the war.

The weather is good, the air is crisp and cold. Visibility is excellent. Our choppers and airplanes will be in their element. If Saddam is not dispatched by his own people in the next two weeks, the war is on.

This fetish that people need to see “evidence” is absurd.Saddam is a serious threat to the safety of our world.We know it, we’ve known it for ages, and that’s good enough.This isn’t a legal brief to be argued before the SCOTUS.This is WAR and the US is waging it how IT sees fit, not how legal eagles wish it to be.

If people need to assuaged that Saddam really is a bad guy and must see even more evidence to be convinced that he is a danger, well, God help us.

Roll on Bush.

Well, here we are 12 years later, and by god, they have rolled on Bush. With a vengeance.

One thought on “Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Clarence sale edition

  1. Oh Tommy, how can you be so unfair? These knotheads (or naughtheads if that’s your preferred spelling) can’t remember what they were told to hate yesterday, much less 11 years ago. But yeah, that dandy war that looked so bright and shiny in 2003 is looking pretty shabby nowadays. And we’ll be paying for it for the next century or so. Sure wish someone would have spoken up about it back in the day, but whaddyagunnado?
