The Conservative Journal Seal of Approval: Barack Obama

That’s right readers, Barack Obama receives The Conservative Journals very first “Seal of Approval” distinction.  Isn’t it ironic that some one who I very rarely have anything at all positive to say about wins the first of these coveted awards?

Anyway, Barack acheived this great honor with his surprisingly quick action regarding the Somali pirates taking Captain Richard Phillips hostage.  Though Barack was not the one that actually gunned down the scallywags, he did OKAY the sniper’s “extermination” of the motley crew.  The shoot out resulted in the death of 3 of the 4 pirates, while the lone survivor suffered serious injuries and is now in custody.  It’s truly a miracle that everyone on the hijacked ship made it alive.  That should teach those swashbucklers to live us alone!

Good job Barack!  Hopefully you can do more things worthy of this honorary distinction.

Thanks for reading!

Also, at the start of this hostage situation, many of us had our doubts on what action our dear Prez would take.  Though I am pleased he got the job done quickly, a cartoon was e-mailed to me during the days of speculation, and I think it’s too clever to not post it.  This is from Dennis “Bones” Evers:

Thankfully, this wasn't the case during the weekend's events.

Thankfully, this wasn't the case during the weekend's events.

If you have any cartoons you have made, or some you think are great, please send them in!  I will be sure to post everything that I receive, as long as it’s appropriate.  Of course, I have a very broad sense of what’s appropriate, so it’s probably fine.

Thanks for reading!

Who Arey They Kidding? Of Course He Bowed!

Does that look like a hand shake to you?

Does that look like a hand shake to you?

Barry O. continued his streak of international missteps last week when he bowed to Saudi Arabian King Abdullah.  Apparently, some one forgot to brief Barack before his trip and tell him that is off limits.  Well, if you watch the video of the bow (You can watch it here if you missed it.) you can see that it is CLEARLY a bow, or as IMAO put it, a “curtsy”.  Honestly, I don’t have a huge problem with the fact that he bowed.  Now, do I think he should have bowed?  Heavens no.  But the people that are saying his bow was “submission to Islam” (yes I read that on a blog) are crazy.  The reason behind the bow is simple: Barack doesn’t know what to do.  He’s confused, and the “fresh”, “new”, “young”, “changed”, “hip” staff that is supposed to be instructing him is even more clueless.  Someone needs to show them all the ropes before the next overseas trip.

Anyway, anyone that has seen the video should clearly see that he bowed.  However, some people that are drinking the strongest of all the kool-aids don’t believe that is the case.  This weekend I watched a woman on a Fox News show watch the video and tell the conservatives in the room they were insane because they thought he bowed.  Look woman, I don’t what video you’re watching, but he DEFINITELY bowed.  And on top of that Gibbs had the audicity to say that it wasn’t a bow and there was no need to talk about it.  I think what these people in denial don’t understand is that this could be much less of a big deal if they would admit the truth.  They are going to have a much easier time convincing Americans that he bowed because he didn’t know proper protocol rather than he didn’t bow at all.  Because he bowed.  There should be no debate over that.  At all.

Ultimately, Barack will learn what he is supposed to do in different conditions.  Until then, we get these kind of gaffes that we can all sit back and watch people over react to.  Barack’s bow was an empty bow.  It meant nothing, he simply thought that was what he was supposed to do.  If I am wrong, however, we have something to worry about.

What do you think of the bow?  Are you as convinced as I am that he definitely bowed?  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com.

Thanks for reading!

The Tale of the Chia Pet

Shame on the scum that made this.  Shame, shame, shame.

Shame on the scum that made this. Shame, shame, shame.

Chia pets were first introduced in 1982, and grew to become very popular collectors items during the 80s.   However, the chia pet has become a joke, landing at the top of the ‘Top 10 Worst Gifts” list several times over the past decade.

Why am I telling you this?  Well, the harmless, grass covered chia pet is at the center of what one blogger called “the biggest scandal of the Obama presidency”.  That’s right folks.  Chia pets’ mothership, Joseph Enterprises, dared to introduce the controversial, racially charged OBAMA CHIA PET.  Or at least, that’s what Walgreens and select few morons are saying.

For those that haven’t heard, the horrible Obama chia pet was released to Walgreens and was nearly immediately pulled from shelves because some viewed the chia as ‘racist’.  They cited the fact that no other president was given a chia pet, so what made them start with Obama?  Well,  here’s a proposal:  B.O. is possibly the single most hyped person in the world.  Everyone is talking about him, whether good or bad.  So naturally, Joseph Enterprises wanted to cash in on Barack’s celebrity power and save their dying chia pet brand.  Is that really so scandalous?

In all actuality, I think the people calling the pet racist are the ones that are racist.  I never in a million years would have looked at a Barack chia pet and thought “Wow, how racist is that?”.  It honestly even took me a minute to find out the ‘racism’ in it after it was pointed out.  Apparently the grass/weed (whatever it is) hair is racist?  Also, would this chia pet still had been racist if every president had a chia in their likeness?  The “racist” hair would still be present, so would everyone causing a stirr over this be doing this same in that situation?  False.  If they left Barack out of the chia line while every other president got one, then it would be racist again.  It’s really just a lose-lose for the chia pet.  And that’s a real shame.
What do you think about the chia pet conspiracy?  Did you notice the alleged racism at first glance?  Leave your comments below or e-mail us at theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Also, check back in and look for a poll on this subject.  Thanks for reading!

Poll of the Day: What Do You think of Barack’s Teleprompter Reliance?

Yesterday I posted a video of Barack losing his place on the teleprompter and taking a good long pause to recoup his thoughts.  His mind was clearly somewhere else when he lost his spot, which led me to believe that he really had no idea what he was saying, but just calling words off of a prompter.  What do you think about the Golden Boy’s reliance on the teleprompter?  I personally have no problem with the use of a teleprompter, as long as the guy using it knows what he’s talking about rather than just reading off of a screen.  Vote below in today’s poll of the day!

Thanks for participating!

Video of the Day: Awwwwkward

I saw this at Pundit Pawn, so I decided to bring it over here.  This further substantiates the fact that the Chosen One doesn’t actually form his own opinion, or know how to think for himself.  Watch what happens after a slight malfunction from his little buddy (teleprompter).

Video of the Day: A Tale Two Bows

I saw this over at Conservative Underground, and I thought it was just too good to pass up.  Here is a video that compares B.O.s bow to the Queen compared with his bow to Saudi Arabian King Abdullah.  Which one looks more sincere to you?

What do you think?  Does anyone have a sneaking suspicion that he would have rather just high-fived the Queen?  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

Poll of the Day: Did You Watch Tuesday’s Press Conference?

Alright, admittedly this is kind of a lame question.  However, I hadn’t asked it yet so I figured I needed to.  Did you watch the press conference on Tuesday?  And be honest.  There is CERTAINLY no shame in blowing the whole thing off.  I had it on in the background and got bits and peices, but it was just a bore.  Vote in the poll below to see how many others skipped on the big event!

Thanks for participating!

Mail Bag: Barack’s Special Olympics Gaffe

Barack Obama’s Special Olympics gaffe not only sparked outrage around the country, but it sparked many comments and e-mails worthy of this “Mail Bag” special.  I just want to take this time to thank everyone that commented and e-mailed, whether featured on this page or not.  Let’s start with those that agreed with me:

Jax put the comments in perspective for us on the “Barack Obama Reads This Blog” post:

He has hurt many families in America. He needs to say he is sorry in the public, not to an organization.

In addition, someone who claims to have experienced prejudice and stereotypes throughout life, and has written about them in great detail, should be more sensitive and refined from life’s lessons.

Furthermore, Obama claimed he was going to have the world think ‘highly’ of America again. Will this joke help?

For someone who spoke of equality as a creed. Does this joke match that philosophy?

For someone that said he would stand for all people. Does this stand up for those that participate in the special Olympics?

The fact is Obama claimed a higher standard. To much is given, much is required.

Obama has just showed us that ‘yes we can’ destroy what a campaign stands for with a single joke.

During the campaign for the White House in 2008, the media criticized Palin for being ‘common,’ ‘not-polished,’ ‘not-compassionate’ and ‘not presidential.’ However, compare Sarah Palins attitude in this video created three weeks ago for the Special Olympics in Boise, Idaho.

You decide the more ‘presidential’ among them. Watch: http://tinyurl.com/ccz6nj

Reaganite Republican, who writes a great conservative blog, left this comment on the same article:

Obama has something seriously wrong with him- what kind of monster mocks the disabled on network television?

I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised by this gauche and downright cruel comment re. the Special Olympics- no different than his classless cheap-shot on 90-yr-old Nancy Reagan in his first presser- apparently his preferred targets are old ladies and the handicapped… what a creep.

Narcissists like Obama are often callous- and even ruthless. They tend to lack empathy and/or a conscience. This is evident in his lack of interest in his own half-brother who lives in poverty in Kenya, or his aunt found living in public housing in Boston.

Other indicators include control freakery, grandiose self-importance, feeling “above the law”, interpersonally exploitive, inability to handle criticism, lack of empathy, arrogant behavior, surrounds himself with sycophants… sound familiar?

Obama is a mess- and his insecurities, bad childhood, and irresponsible, far-left-wierdo mother are now all OUR problem, too-

Of course, with great postivive comments, there had to be some negative:

kimi33 sent in this e-mail regarding the special olympics comments:

You conservatives just have to have something to criticize, don’t you?  Those who have never made an off-color comment can cast the first stone.  It was just a slip that doesn’t deserve all this unwarranted coverage from “Faux Noise”.  Conservatives keep saying Obama should have been fixing the economy instead of be on Jay Leno, so instead of coverring Jay Leno the conservative media should cover the economy.

Love from the left,

kimi

And to you, kimi:  What about when Bush made an off-color remark?  Did you jump on the MSDNC (See, I got funny nicknames too) bandwagon and talk about it for days?  Heck, in the days after Bush did something comparable to this the Clintons could have bombed Canada and would receive no coverage from MSDNC and the majority of media outlets.  The fact is, they can treat it like a non-story all they want, but it doesn’t erase the fact that Barack is a insensitive windbag hypocrit.  Have a great day!

So that wraps up the latest Mail Bag segment for now.  Once again, thanks to all that commented, and if your comment wasn’t featured send in another one on another article!

What was your favorite comment?  Do you think kimi had the same attitude towards John McCain when he couldn’t remember how many houses he had?  Leave your comments below and you may end up in the next Mail Bag!

Thanks for reading!

Barack Obama Reads This Blog

That’s right.  I know he does because just hours after I called for his apology regarding the ‘Special Olympics’ comment on Jay Leno, he did.  How do I know he read it here, you ask?  Well, because I can tell, that’s why.  Alright, so regardless of whether or not he read it here, B.O. did apologize for his remarks.  He called chairman of the Special Olympics, Tim Shriver,  to express his apologies and then went on to say some of the competitors were more than welcome to visit the White House for bowling or basketball.  Well that was nice B.O., and to think I doubted you.  Well now that I know you read this blog I have some more advice for you:  fire turbe-tax Geithner, fire Nancy Pelosi, fire all of congress, stop being a socialist, and quit spending all the money you can get your hands on.  Now get to work, that’s only the beginning!

What do you think about his apologies?  What other famous people do you think read this blog?  Leave your comments below or send us and e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

For those that missed B.O.’s comments about the Special Olympics, the story can be found here.  What do you think about those comments?  As I said in my article, I think they were over-the-line and he should apologize rather than hide behind a White House Press Release.  Vote in today’s poll to see how your opinion compares to other readers of The Conservative Journal!

Come On, Barack! Well, at Least He’s a Liberal.

I suck like the Special Olympics, says Obama.

"I suck like the Special Olympics", says Obama.

Barack, Barack, Barack. What were you thinking? You can’t talk about how bad you were bowling and compare it to the Special Olympics; especially when you’re the president! I mean, I’m sure I’ve said worse, but you are the PRESIDENT. Geez. For those that missed this little debacle, while Barack was being a cool cat on Jay Leno (DID YOU KNOW HE WAS THE FIRST PRESIDENT EVER TO GO ON A LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW???), Jay brought up his lack of bowling skill. Barack said it was getting a little better but still sucked, and then compared his horribleness to the Special Olympics. I’m sure there were many expletives swirling about in his brain after that little slip, but he should rest easy because he’ll be fine. Why, you ask? Because he’s a liberal, of course! The only people that are going to ever know about this are the viewers of FOX News, listeners of talk radio, the people watching Leno, and people that read conservative blogs online. That’s probably, at the most, 15 million people that will have any idea he said that. Being a liberal nearly makes you impervious to media scrutiny, so he’s got no need to worry.  Oh and don’t forget the White House released that memo that said he didn’t mean to degrade the Special Olympics.  Oh ok, no problem then!  Come on, that’s like calling your mom a stupid fat cow, but then saying you didn’t mean it in a mean way.  How dumb does the White House think we are?  (Oh wait, we did elect the guy. :)).  So rather than hiding behind a White House Press Release, I demand that you, Barack Obama, apologize to America for belittling the Special Olympics.  We’re waiting.

*Disclaimer*

Now I know that on numerous I’ve said America needs to toughen up and not get so offended about stuff, but I think this was over the line.  Making rude comments about physical disabilities is not in the realm of okayness.  And for those that like to e-mail me and say I’m just biased, I spoke out against Laura Ingraham’s comments on Meghan McCain’s weight earier this week.  No, I didn’t say as much about them, but those comments were not anywhere near as offensive.

Just imagine the outrage if Rush or Hannity or Coulter had said that! We’d never hear the end of it.  What do you think of Obama’s comments?  Were they completely ridiculous or do you think it was all in good humor?  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

Thanks for reading!
