"Tito the Builder"

If you can relate to "Joe the Plumber", then you will absolutely LOVE "Tito the Builder". Tito Munoz is a naturalized US citizen from Colombia who was interviewed on Hannity and Colmes tonight. He was great, and he gets what it means to be an American. How long will it take for the Obama operatives to destroy him?

Hope to post video soon.

Here he is yesterday with my favorite TV personality Megyn Kelly:

Tito's view of Obama and democrats:
"What the government wants to do to me is give me a handout, give me a bunch of crumbs, and is going to tell me 'you Tito, poor Tito stay down there. You know you don't know anything, you don't have a dream, just stay down there we'll throw you some crumbs'."

Tito on America:
"I believe this country is about opportunity and not government handouts"

UPDATE: Here is Tito from last night's appearance on Hannity & Colmes:


Okay, maybe not so shocking. Obama gets back door "endorsement" from Al Qaeda.

"pre-buttal" to tonight's Obama infomercial

El Rushbo delivers the conservative "pre-buttal" to the messiah's infomercial



My mom emailed me the cartoon above. Below is from an email I received, allegedly from an Orange County, CA newspaper...

Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed.

Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preference--just imagine the coincidence.

When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight.

I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I've decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful.

At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient deserved money more.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application (ask the waiter)

OR IS IT.........REDISTRIBUTION OF SOMEONE ELSE'S WEALTH IS A GREAT IDEA..............or just a fools game !!

Hide your wallet, two years later

When the democrats, led by Pelosi and Reid, took control of both houses of congress after the 2006 election, I advised all of you to "hide your wallet". Two years later, this congress has the lowest approval rating in history, and miraculously is poised to GAIN seats in both houses. This potential "super-majority", combined with an Obama presidency, compels me to repeat my warning. There would be nothing in their way.

European Socialists prefer Obama over McCain

It's over...called first by Vogue

It appears Vogue magazine is the first to call the election for Obama, with "Four generations of Biden Beauties: All the Vice President's Women".

Of course, this seems minor, but this is no accident. He is in fact still "Senator Biden". We've been calling him that for over 30 years, so for at least a couple more weeks, isn't it "All the 6-Term Senator's Women"?

more light shined on Obama's "Tax cuts"

Welfare and redistribution disguised as "tax cuts". The American Spectator has a great analysis here in "Searching for Obama's 95 Percent".

I went to the Obama-Biden tax calculator, where their website estimates your tax cut under the Obama plan. Just playing around, I entered a married couple, filing jointly, with no dependents, making $20,000 per year. We all know that this family currently has ZERO tax burden under George W. Bush. Obama's plan will reduce their taxes from $0.00 to negative $1,000, so they get a $1,000 refund. That's welfare, not a tax cut. A bald man cannot get a haircut, and someone who pays no taxes cannot get a tax cut.

I have no problem with Obama proposing new social programs and entitlement spending, and campaigning on that. Calling them 'tax cuts' means he doesn't want us to know what he's up to, or he knows being honest about these proposals will cost him votes.

UPDATE: Good analysis of both economic plans HERE

Who is Christopher Buckley?

I'll give you a hint. He's not a former DB for the Florida State Seminoles, he's not a former linebacker for Texas A&M, and he's not a conservative columnist. He is the unknown son of the late conservative icon William F. Buckley. He has been writing for the conservative magazine National Review (founded by his late father), but to date, has been largely irrelevant. He failed to inherit the conservative "torch" from his father, who likely favored Rush Limbaugh for that task. Much like Comidus was slighted by his own father, Marcus Aurelius, in favor of the great commander Maximus, Christopher appears to have been passed over. I don't fault him for seeking relevance by distancing from his father's legacy.

Christopher Buckley's article this week, "Sorry Dad, I'm Voting for Obama", has certainly put him on the map. His hail mary for significance connected (we're talking about him, right?), but I think he only got one foot down in bounds--incomplete pass. Sure, he'll be on Sportscenter, but soon forgotten, just like Ron Reagan, Jr. after the 2004 DNCC speech. Christopher Buckley is now the PR equivalent of Kim Kardashian. Kim had a famous father, but we had never heard of Kim until she made her sex tape. Now she's famous, but no one has any respect for her. She's just a hairdresser with a famous dad, who made a sex tape.

You can tell immediately that Chris Buckley knew he was starting from a position of weakness. He began his article by discrediting anyone who disagrees with him as a "kook" and anyone who speaks up about it as a "cretin". This technique is used by my "moderate" friends, who try to proactively discredit me by associating my opinions with Rush Limbaugh. It is an immediate sign of a weak argument.

Christopher Buckley goes on to make some good points about McCain. It is true that he has been changed by the campaign. When I hear Obama say "the straight talk express has lost a wheel", that resonates with me. McCain has been all over the board lately, moving right on some things and left on others, while Obama has been relatively disciplined (his shifts have been there, but more subtle). McCain's 9th inning "attacks" on Obama's record should have been started in the 8th inning. Still, we know who McCain is, and it's safe to assume he will gravitate back to that in office. Some of it I like, and some I don't, but we know what he is, and it will always be closer to conservatism than anything we would ever hope to get from Obama.

We know who Obama is too. He has a clear record of big government and tax increases, as well as inaction on some major issues. He's a liberal, wealth redistributor who believes all problems should be solved by wealth redistribution. Chris Buckley tries to gain credibility by implying his father would agree with him. We all know that's absurd. Christopher basically says he is voting for Obama and hopes he will do a 180 on all of his positions and history. That he's a good writer and speaker, and he's smart, so he'll come around. That is a losing bet. It reminds me of a discussion on the Hardline (Sports Radio KTCK 1310 am-Dallas) in the late 90's. They were discussing Rusty Greer's unusually low batting average early in the season (I think he was batting around .200 in May). Greggo explained his theory that a .300 hitter will always end up around .300 by the end of the season. He turned out to be right about Greer, but I think it translates well to politicians. They rarely change. If you think you are going to follow Christopher Buckley's lead, and vote for Obama, praying he will "come around" on military, taxes and spending, prepare to be disappointed.

Obama's "Tax Cuts"

No surprise that Obama has stretched the definition of "Tax cuts" in describing his economic plan, and he's really just hiding another wealth redistribution scheme. He actually said so today. In Obama's words to a PLUMBER, who seems to get it. (can I assume that most plumbers are middle class guys?)
Plumber to Obama: "Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?
Obama: "It's not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you...that they've got a chance at success too. I think when you spread the wealth around it's good for everybody."

There you have it folks, admission of redistributionist, Marxist intent, right out of his own mouth. You don't have to take my word for it any more.

Like you needed any more, there's a thorough analysis of Obama's "Tax Cut" plan in today's Wall Street Journal. In the article titled "Obama's 95% Illusion", it's made very clear exactly what this is, and how exactly you can "cut taxes" for 95% of Americans, when only about 60% actually pay taxes. REFUNDABLE TAX CREDITS, also known as "welfare", and coded "Demogrants" by George McGovern. This is when you don't pay a single dime in taxes, but when you file your return, you find that the tax credits added up to the government owing you money, and you get a check! Magical wealth redistribution that would make Karl Marx proud.

Obama's plan also creates a huge disincentive for work, as people would be penalized out of their refundable credits by actually earning more money at their jobs. This is so against the American grain that it makes me SICK!

Read the whole WSJ article for the full scope.

McCain's new economic plan based on TAX CUTS

Looks like McCain may be ready to roll out a real, conservative, market-based plan to get the economy on track, by reducing capital gains and dividend taxes. This is a solid plan. I have heard Newt Gingrich propose a total elimination of the capital gains tax. This makes perfect sense and should resonate with voting Americans, if McCain is not too inept to explain it.

McCain plans new tax cuts:


Wrong for the Right

Unfortunately, this article from the New York Post hits the nail on the head. I have been voicing my discomfort with McCain for months, and this article describes exactly how I feel.
To the degree that they are engaged in this election, conservatives are motivated entirely by fear of Obama and what he will do as president when backed by a solidly liberal Democratic House and Senate. They are not driven by love of the Republican candidate, and it shows in the anger present at McCain campaign rallies. Most conservatives will probably vote for McCain, but they also realize they are far less likely to persuade others, and they feel a disaster coming. The enthusiasm the Right felt during the 2004 election, which had been framed as a true ideological clash between Left and Right, simply does not exist this time around.

If it were McCain, or any Republican tied to this radical organization/voter fraud machine, it would be front page news. They would be calling for him to step aside from the nomination.

However, Obama and ACORN are hardly getting acknowledged by the mainstream media (except for, surprisingly, the New York Times). Talk radio has been talking about it for weeks, as well as Michelle Malkin, Investors Business Daily and on, and McCain finally blew the lid off of it today. I am quite certain that will be played over the weekend in the MSM as McCain "getting desperate" and "attacking" or "going negative".

Obama is closely tied to this radical group. This is just the "short list":
  • Representing ACORN, Obama sued Citibank, forcing them to issue high risk loans.
  • On behalf of ACORN, Obama sued the State of Illinois to force implementation of the "motor voter" laws
  • Obama paid ACORN, which has endorsed him for president, $800,000 to register new voters, payments his campaign failed to accurately report. (They were disguised in his FEC disclosure as payments to a front group called Citizen Services Inc. for "advance work.")
Again, this is just the "short list" of his ties to ACORN. The voter fraud runs so deep at this organization, which is also closely linked to the current financial crisis, that they were even caught registering members of the Dallas Cowboys to vote in Nevada. They are currently under investigation in at least SIX (correction: EIGHT) states.

According to Michael Steele (on Hannity & Colmes quoting Lt. Col Allen West), Barack Obama could not run for any other office in the United States, because he could not pass the security clearances required, due to his past associations. I am formally calling for Barack Obama to step down in his quest for the Presidency of the United States.

How did this happen?

Long video, and a little hard to watch, but it has everything you need to know about how democrats set us up for the current financial crisis, and thwarted reform efforts by republicans including Bush and McCain.

Why Sen. John McCain is not shouting this from the rooftops is another one of those campaign mysteries, but it is undeniable and is just one more reason why neither Sen. Obama, nor his fellow Democrats should be allowed to retain control of Congress and, potentially, gain control of the White House.

Interestingly, YouTube pulled the first version of this video, due to a "copyright claim" from Warner Music.
