All I want for Christmas is…

Remember the movie A Christmas Story? The main character, Ralphie, wanted “an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock, and this thing which tells time.”

And, at the end of the movie, he got it.

Remember Peggy Joseph? She’s the woman who said that, because of Obama, wouldn’t have to worry about putting gas in her car or have to worry about her mortgage.

She thinks he’s Santa Claus.

Well, so do most Americans, it seems. They voted him as the next president.

In the spirit of those American classics — A Christmas Story and Barack Obama — I’m wondering what you want Obama to bring you for Christmas.

His place in history

When the Electors meet in their respective states’ capitals today to formally cast their ballots for president, something historical will occur.

But I have a question regarding Barack Obama’s place in history: Will he be the second Mob-connected president, or the third?

Just wondering.

Mr. President

George Washington looked through his leveling instrument when he heard the sound of hoofs. He looked up, and saw the rider approaching.

A small cloud of dust rose, tracing the path the rider was taken down the dirt road that worked its way through the plantation.

It was wonderful here. He appreciated the life he had now. Was it life? He wasn’t sure. He didn’t care. He simply enjoyed it.

The rider pulled up.

“Mr. President,” the rider said, tipping his hat.

“Mr. President,” Washington replied, returning the salute.

“Are you going to see the results of the election?” John Adams, the rider, asked.

El Hombre Negro

Hugo Chavez is reported to have said that he looks forward to talking with “the black man” in the White House.

But, you know what? I bet he didn’t say that.

Oh, sure, Klingons speak English. Saw that on Star Trek. Cardassians, too. And the Borg. Romulans, Vulcans, Q, they all speak English. Even those green Orion slave women speak English. And those people on Twilight Zone that want To Serve Man, even they speak English.

But Hugo Chavez doesn’t.

I looked up what he said:

No le pedimos que sea un revolucionario, que sea un socialista, no, sólo que se coloque el hombre negro que está a punto de llegar a ser presidente de los Estados Unidos (…) ojalá se ubique a la altura del momento que vive el mundo.”

“El hombre negro.” The black man.

If I said that, I’d be in a world of hurt. But since Chavez said it, it’s okay. Since Chavez is one of The Anointed One’s friends.

Anyway, Obama … oops, I mean El Hombre Negro … is Hugo Chavez’ choice for President of the U.S.

Even the Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians, Borg, or any other evil race has the decency to stay out of it.

But, here in Bizarro World, it’s a positive for Obama … excuse me, I mean, El Hombre Negro … to have someone like Hugo Chavez as a supporter.

I miss my planet Earth.

Obama cares for you … as long as you’re not related to him

Barack Obama called John McCain, Sarah Palin, and conservatives in general, “selfish” for opposing his plan to take your money and “spread the wealth around” by giving it to others.

Some Obama supporters, like Peggy Johnson, say Obama will take care of them:

Obama has had a lead with Hispanic voters for some time — though that gap is closing — because of how he’s perceived regarding the immigration issue.

So, how do those perceptions bear up to the facts?

They don’t.

Why would Obama take care of Peggy Johnson, when he won’t take care of his own aunt?

She’s been living — illegally — in a Boston slum for four years. And Obama isn’t trying to help her stay here.

But, remember, this is Bizzaro World we’re now living in.

What’s the big focus of the story about Obama’s Aunt Zeituni?

There’s an investigation to find out who told.

Gosh, I miss reality. This whole Bizzaro World is taking some getting used to.

If not, then what kind of person is he now, having spent 20 years with his mentor, Jeremiah Wright?

Obama in his own words: Bill Ayers

Obama defends his relationship with Ayers:

Obama and Bill Ayers:

Bill Ayers, the terrorist who dedicated a book to “political prisoners’ … like Sirhan Sirhan:Obama knew Ayers. Obama worked with Ayers. Obama got money for Ayers. Lots and lots of money.

The whole “when I was 8 years old” line doesn’t fly, because he wasn’t 8 when he launched his campaign in Ayers’ home. He wasn’t 8 when he served on several boards and programs with Ayers. He wasn’t 8 years old when he used his position in the Illinois state legislature to get money for Ayers and his group.

Tell me again why he’s leading in the polls.

Obama in his own words: Teach sex ed to kindergarteners

Obama and sex education. Listen carefully to what he says 25 seconds in. Then hear Gov. Romney’s response.

So tell me again why Obama is expected to win in any state that has a large coal economy

Latest polls (if you believe them) show Barack Obama winning in many of the largest coal-producing states.

Of the top 15 coal-producing states, Obama leads the polls in 6 of them, for a total of 89 electoral votes:

  1. Wyoming (338,900)
  2. West Virginia (158,257)
  3. Kentucky (130,688)
  4. *Pennsylvania (74,619)
  5. Texas (49,498)
  6. Montana (38,352)
  7. *Illinois (33,444)
  8. *Virginia (32,834)
  9. North Dakota (31,270)
  10. *Colorado (29,137)
  11. Indiana (27,965)
  12. *New Mexico (27,323)
  13. Utah (26,656)
  14. *Ohio (22,269)
  15. Alabama (19,324)

Totals in thousands of short tons, as of 2000. States marked with an asterisk (*) are listed as leaning/strong Obama by on November 2, 2008.

If McCain won those states, he’d win the election.

But here’s the reality … or so it seems: Obama leads in 6 of the top coal-producing states.

And Obama wants to bankrupt the coal industry:

Let me sort of describe my overall policy.

What I’ve said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there.

I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.

That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches.

The only thing I’ve said with respect to coal, I haven’t been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a ideological matter as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can.

It’s just that it will bankrupt them.

Why would someone in those states want to vote themselves out of a job?

Maybe so they can get some of your wealth that Obama plans to spread around?

Sturmabteilung? Or Schutzstaffel?

Barack Obama wants a “civilian national security force.”

Not the National Guard. Not the Reserves. But a new force.

We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objective that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.

What was that organization that Adolf Hitler had? Sturmabteilung? You know, the “Brown Shirts.”

Or maybe he wants to go straight to the Schutzstaffel, the “SS.”

Are those of us on the right the only ones that ever read books? Or that watched the Nazi shows on the History Channel instead of their “Search for Bigfoot” or “Roswell Uncovered” shows? Or that can think for ourselves?
