Mr. Blunt and Cranky cannot believe how stupid and gullible his fellow Americans have gotten to be. Really, he should go into used car sales or something, because the lot of you have evidently lost your critical faculties of late. Let us review:

Act One: Benghazi. It was spun by the “news” media and certain politicos as a breathtaking scandal that could doom Obama’s chances of re-election, and lots of hysterical stories were written and accusations were leveled. As time passed, we learned that a lot of the initial stories were false, wrong, or at the very least inaccurate. In the end, it turned out that the cries of “Wolf” were hysterical, manipulative crap. The truth of the matter is, people had f***ed up, heads rolled and changes had to be made, but the Prexy had nothing to do with it. The media retracted very little of what they had said, and the politicos retracted nothing. So lots of stupid people STILL think there is a Benghazi scandal, even though the wolf-criers have been proven to be liars.

Act Two: the latest IRS dustup. It too was spun by the “news” media and certain politicos as a breathtaking scandal that could doom Obama’s chances of accomplishing anything in his second term, and lots of hysterical stories were written and accusations were leveled. As time passed, we learned that a lot of the initial stories were false, wrong, or at the very least inaccurate. In the end, it turned out that the cries of “Wolf” were hysterical, manipulative crap. The truth of the matter is, people had f***ed up, heads rolled and changes had to be made, but the Prexy had nothing to do with it. The media retracted very little of what they had said, and the politicos retracted nothing. So lots of stupid people STILL think there is an IRS scandal, even though the wolf-criers have been proven to be liars.

Act Three: The NSA Scandal. Just like before, it is being spun as the scandal of the century, hysterical bulls*** is plentiful,and people want to throw our President our of office. Never mind that the quote Journalism end quote is a load of sloppy garbage and just as in our two previous examples,falls apart like a cheap nose wipe in the rain when subjected to scrutiny.

And what are Americans doing? Do they say “Gee whiz, they cried “Wolf” before, maybe we better wait and see what the facts are”? Oh, don’t be silly. No, just like puppets on strings they are jumping up and down, getting outraged, freaking out, and acting as if this scandal du jour is somehow different than all the other times the boys in the media and Congress have cried “Wolf” in the past. Wake the f***ing f*** up, peeps: just like before, we’ll find out that people f***ed up, and heads will roll and changes will be made. But none of this means that Obama is some sort of evil Lupine creature. No matter how many times the wolf criers may call him one.

So, why for the love of GOD, do so many of you keep believing those little f***ers when they cry wolf? Really, people, you should have learned by now to wait for proof before believing the lying wolf criers.

http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/05/13/rep-bachmann-911-benghazi-are-a-judgment-from-god/  Yes, she really said it.  According to the Loon of the Lakes, 9/11/01 and 9/11/12 were not the fault of those scumbucket terrorists. Nope, God killed them, via His “judgment”.

Well, then, Michele, let’s let all the terrorists go free, since they didn’t commit any crimes, right? If God is the guilty party, can we really justify holding these men in prison? Of course not. And call off the manhunt for the despicable little s***s who murdered our embassy staff in Benghazi, too. She says God killed them as well, again by his “judgment”. So really, it’s not the fault of the miserable little weasels that we thought did the deed: no, it was God that did it. Thus sayeth Bachmann, anyway.

You don’t think that’s what she meant? Take another example of His judgment: the Flood. God (according to the Bible that Ms. Bachmann also reads) did away with every animal that walked the Earth as his judgment on us for our wicked ways: every such creature that Noah could not fit on the Ark. Also, God killed a lot of young men in ancient Egypt when Moses was trying to get the Israelites freed. So, make no mistake about it, when people die as a result of God’s judgment, it is God that kills them. And He makes no bones about it.

This Congresscritter is truly insane, people. We know that humans do evil things: we see it every day. Do we really think that God is the agent of evil, that He rapes, steals, tortures and murders us? Most of us think no such thing. Ms. Bachmann would appear to think that is the case, though. (Hint, Michele – look up “Satan” in your dictionary. You may have him and God mixed up.)

But then, what do you expect from someone who claims to have heard the voice of God telling her to make LGBT Americans into second-class citizens? Yes, she said that too: http://www.npr.org/player/v2/mediaPlayer.html?action=1&t=1&islist=false&id=183700366&m=183728685

Hey, Michele: maybe, just possibly maybe, the guilty party is not God at all. Maybe the  guilt belongs to  the despicable terrorist killers who flew those planes and pulled those triggers. A crackpot idea, perhaps, but you might want to give it a moment’s thought sometime.

http://thinkprogress.org/security/2013/05/13/2002871/issa-obama-covered-up-benghazi-terrorism-by-calling-it-an-act-of-terror/ is a story worthy of a quick read. In it, Darrell Issa shows his immense stupidity yet again, by claiming that saying that “act of terror” means something different than “terrorist act”. Really.

Of course, it could be that Mr. Issa does know that they mean the same thing. If so, he’s a stinking, manipulative, crooked little man who is wasting taxpayer money and precious time on a partisan witch-hunt.

Neither option says anything good about the man.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Holy crap, Dick Cheney who, along with the rest of the Shrubinistas, totally failed to prepare for 9/11, has the sand to accuse the Prexy of “not being prepared” for the Benghazi attack on 9/11? Really, Dickie?

That is like having Mark Sanford lecture you on monogamy. Like Keith Richards telling you not to use drugs.

Loki on a trampoline, people. This is nuts.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Lindsey Graham, among others, has been blaming the Boston Marathon Bombing on the Obama administration. Because? Well, as far as Mr. Blunt and Cranky can tell, the Repub’s reason boils down to “because f*** Obama”. They would have us believe that the Dems are “soft on crime” and “weak on terrorism”, and other such nonsensical twaddle. Because, well, “f*** Obama”.

Let’s look at some actual results, and see how well this incredibly intellectual analysis holds up, shall we? We shall, oh yes, we shall: terrorist attacks on American soil.

9/11: Bush The Dumber fumbles, flops, disappears, and comes back with a megaphone-aided photo op. He caught very few of the perpetrators, wasted billions of dollars, and generally did damn-all to bring the guilty to justice. In fact, Obama had to catch or kill the perps when he got into office because BTD didn’t get around to it.

4/15: Obama immediately tells his peeps, “Go get those mother***ers”. The perps were caught or killed in less than a week.

It sure looks like this Prexy did a lot better job of keeping us safe than the previous Oval Office occupant. Advantage: Obama.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Today is 9/11, and lots of politicians will be pointing fingers at each other, patting themselves on backs, demonizing the other party, and taking credit for actions, deservedly and undeservedly. Mister Blunt and Cranky is blessed with (or perhaps “afflicted by” is a better way of saying it) an excellent memory, and he will say two things that we should all remember:

Number A: Bill Clinton tried but failed to kill Bin Laden and wipe out al-Qaeda;

Letter 2: Bush The Dumber ignored Bin Laden and al-Qaeda until 9/11; after which date HE tried but failed to kill Bin Laden and wipe out al-Qaeda.

Both administrations were warned about the threat, and showed varying degrees of willingness to accept input from national security experts.  Unlike the batshit-crazy “Truthers”, this writer will not say that Bush The Dumber was responsible for 9/11. He will, however, say that the evidence shows that experts were trying to get the attention of the Bushies, and the Bushies did not listen: http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/NSAEBB/NSAEBB147/index.htm is one of many sources.

It is a fruitless waste of time to speculate on what could have been changed had Condi, Dickie, and Co. shut their mouths long enough to open their ears. It is NOT, however, a waste of time to remember their unwillingness to listen to experts at a time of grave peril to our nation; and to remember the consequences of that failure to listen.

Too often, executives and others hide behind their preconceived notions and ignore any input that does not fit into those preconceptions. As we move into a future of a deteriorating global security environment, we need to learn from the mistakes of 2001 and pay attention when the intelligent individual we hired is trying to tell us something we may not want to hear.

These days, it can be a matter of life and death.

Mr. B & C

P.S. President Obama did listen to his smart people, and has wasted a whole load of terrorist mother***ers (including OBL) as a result. Listening works.

A few years back, terrorists attacked the United States of America (9/11); killing innocent civilians, traumatizing millions, destroying billions of dollars’ worth of property, and starting a set of wars, some of which rage on to this day.

A few more years back, a foreign empire attacked the United States of America (Pearl Harbor); killing soldiers and civilians alike, traumatizing millions, destroying billions of dollars’ worth of property and materials, and starting a war, the scars of which are still visible to this day.

Today, women across the nation will be able to get better insurance coverage for their breast exams, pap smears, screenings, birth control and other health care products (ObamNeycare); killing nobody, traumatizing only a few bigoted billionaires, creating millions of dollars of additional productivity and starting no wars whatsoever.

Yep. All three are pretty much the same. Yupyupyup. Sure thing.  At least they are if you ask “Representative” Mike Kelly (R-PA), who is hugely freaked out about this infamous day, on which employers and insurance companies  might have to cough up a few more shekels than they did yesterday. The horror, the horror.

Ask anybody who was in Hawaii on December 7th, 1941; ask anybody who was in Manhattan on September 11th. 2001; ask them if their blood runs as cold over the prospect of cheaper boobie exams as it does when they remember the horrific attacks that maimed our nation.
