Mail Bag: A Vast Array of Textual Remarks

To the elitist snob that likes to e-mail me:  Shouldnt you be eating your caviar?  Its going to sour.

To the elitist snob that likes to e-mail me: Shouldn't you be eating your caviar? It's going to sour.

Like the title?  I’m just trying to please the elitist snob that sent me an e-mail stating my vocabulary was on par with a grade schooler.  Thankfully, I don’t write this blog to try and sound like a graduate of an Ivey League school, nor do I think it’s necessary to do so.  The person who e-mailed the comment, who wished to remained unnamed, must be drawn to Obama for his use of flowery vocabulary alone, as their is zero substance to his words.  However, I wonder what said poster thought about Obama’s press conference?  It didn’t contain that many “million dollar words”.  Surely they had the same disdain?  Negative.

I will now step down from my soapbox and post some “worthy” comments from the mail box and the website.  Here are the highlights:

New reader Lisa Krempasky, whose blog can be found here, has left several entertianing comments:

On the Michael Moore WikiGate article, Lisa had this to say:

I’m more interested in the day when Moore will be known as inmate 73027963.

Even most of his looney buddies are distancing themselves from him

And on “More From the World of Meghan“, she said this about her moderateness:

Progressive republican…good one.

I’m also very glad for her depth of economic analysis in her affirmation that the president is taking the economy serious. I feel much better now.

Trust us, Lisa, we feel better too!

Neoavatara, whose blog can be found here, said this about Charlie Rangel:

Rangel is an embarrassment. The Democrats are currently protecting him, which makes it even worse. It is silly, really, because if Rangel left, his district is a safe Democratic seat. The Democrats are making the same mistake Republicans did: If someone does something wrong, don’t protect them. People should be responsible for their actions.

Neoavatara also had this to say about Barack reading this blog:

I think the problem is that Obama’s teleprompter needs to read your site…otherwise there is no way you will get an apology.

I must agree with you there.  Maybe I can go submit it to his teleprompter’s blog, which can be found here.  That blog is hilarious, by the way.

And finally, I’d like to just direct everyone to the last Mail Bag post, where a nice discussion over Barack’s “Special Olympics” gaffe is located.  It’s a great little discussion that everyone should take part in.

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!

Poll of the Day: What Do You Think of Barack’s Special Olympics Comments?

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!
