Cindy Sheehan Brings Her Anti-War Protests to Obama

Posted Posted in Barack Obama, Cindy Sheehan

Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan flashes a peace sign during a roadside protest opposite a security checkpoint leading to U.S. President George W. Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas August 7, 2006

Does anyone, especially the left-wing MSM care?
This morning the anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan — the woman who spent so much time leading well-publicized protests outside President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas — announced that she will demonstrate next week at Martha’s Vineyard, where President Obama will be vacationing.  “There are several things that we wish to accomplish with this protest on Martha’s Vineyard,” Sheehan said in a statement:…..

No, the LEFT and the MSM bashed Bush ad nauseum and now it is “The One” who is left to clean up the mess.

Right?

Well, that is what they will write or just try to ignore the escalating war in Afghanistan.

Can Meg Whitman Save California?

Posted Posted in Joan Baez, Meg Whitman
Meg Whitman at the California Republican Party Spring Convention 2009

Fortune Magazine has a featured piece in its latest edition. Read it here.

Noteworthy: Whitman takes a backhand to California GOP Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger: “Being CEO of the state is not a popularity contest.”

Noteworthy from Jerry Brown (former California Governor nicknamed “Gov. Moonbeam”): 

Brown displays a mix of ridicule and respect when he describes candidate Meg’s positioning this way: “‘I ran a business. I can buy my campaign. I have zero experience in government. I want to take on the most difficult state government job in America. Therefore, make me governor.’ That’s her campaign.”

Flap thinks Meg Whitman will have an uphill climb to the GOP nomination in June 2010.

Stay tuned……

The Obligatory Cher is a Moron: Republican Rule Almost KILLED ME

Posted 9 CommentsPosted in Cher, Elton John
Cher talking to CNS News

Funny that when Flap saw Cher at Caesar’s in Las Vegas last summer that she didnm’t mind taking this Republican’s money. She did make a crack at the beginning of her show about right-wing Christians though.

I am sure the folks at Harrah’s who own Caesar’s Palace told her to keep it on the downlow so that there would not be a walk out like Linda Ronstadt had a year ago or so.

Here are the quotes:

Grammy award-winning singer and Academy award-winning actress Cher told CNSNews.com that living under Republican rule almost “killed” her, and she does not understand why anyone would want to be a Republican.

She also said that President Barack Obama’s “intelligence” and “spirit” are “so great” he will be able to do “more than anyone could possibly do.”

“His intelligence is so great and his spirit is so great, I believe he will be able to do as much if not more than anyone could possibly do,” Cher told CNSNews.com at the “Declare Yourself” inaugural ball. 

“I just think he’s totally the right person at this time in our history,” she said. “He brings something more in his spirit than maybe another president could be even with the same intelligence. There’s something about him that brings more with his spirit, and that’s what Americans need right now. Republicans almost killed me.”

When asked to explain how Republicans somehow “killed” her, Cher was not specific.

“You know what? I have so – I try to be charitable and there are some really good Republicans, but I just don’t understand how anyone would want to be a Republican. I just can’t figure it. I don’t understand,” she said. “If you’re poor, if you’re any kind of minority – gay, black, Latino, anything. If you’re not a rich – I don’t know. If you’re not a rich born-again-Christian, I don’t get it.”

You know, Cher’s show was actually pretty good despite her “UNHINGED” politics and Flap enjoyed it. But, Elton John’s was better and he certainly stayed away from any political commnentary during his show.

But, then again, Elton John endorsed Hillary Clinton and not the Obamessiah like Cher.

Democrat Supporting Organizations And Unions Target GOP Senators On Obama Stimulus Bill

Latest television ad targeting GOP Senators on Obama Stimulus Legislation

Left-Wing Democratic Party supporting groups are going to bat targeting GOP Senators over next week’s vote on the Obama/Democrat Stimulus Bill that passed the House yesterday.

Who are they targeting?

GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Olympia Snowe (Maine), Judd Gregg (N.H.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Chuck Grassley (Iowa).

An ad mixes that clip with voiceovers imploring the Republicans to cross the aisle: “Tell Sens. Collins and Snowe to support the Obama plan for jobs, not the failed policies of the past,” a voiceover intones in the ad running in Maine.

Collins and Snowe were among the five Republicans who have already supported the legislation at the committee level.

Obama won in Maine, New Hampshire and Iowa by large margins, though he lost Alaska’s electoral votes. The ads aim to pressure Murkowski, Gregg and Grassley, all of whom face re-election in 2010, to vote for the Senate version of the stimulus package.

Collins won reelection in 2008 and Snowe doesn’t face voters again until 2012.

The ads, which will cost $500,000 total, are being funded by Americans United for Change, MoveOn.org, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and the Service Employees International Union. The group of organizations estimated it would spend a combined $4 to $5 million on the entire campaign.

Will these GOP Senators hold the party discipline like the GOP House that voted unanimously yesterday against the bill?

Perhaps, because despite the ads, polling shows American voters are not that enthused over the Obama pork-laden plan.
