Overzealous Obama Fan Gets Campaign E-mails, Responds With Gay Love Letters, ‘My Sweet and Darling Barack’

December 2, 2012 at 4:53 pm (Andrew Sullivan, Barack Obama, Chris Matthews, Dylan Hansen-Fliedner, First Gay President, Gay, Joe Biden, Love Letters, Michelle Obama, Pennsylvania)

Honestly, this could have actually been any member of the mainstream media that fell for this.

It was as if the first gay President was speaking to him.  Dylan Hansen-Fliedner received the same campaign e-mails that millions of others had during the election season.  You know the ones.  Form letters asking for your minor $3 or $5 donation, and signed with the President’s name.

But Dylan seems to be the only one who took things just a tad too far.

Via Politico (h/t Weasel Zippers):

… But one student at the University of Pennsylvania was inspired in another way. He wrote back. Love letters.

When Dylan Hansen-Fliedner received an email signed by “Barack” asking for help with the great challenges that lay ahead, the 20-year-old sought to reassure the president of his support: “writing this letter makes me run out of words..i love you so much that i dont know how to express it anymore..”

In response to a missive signed by first lady Michelle Obama, he wrote: “Dear Michelle, You existing makes me want to crawl under a rock. Your beauty undoes everything else—the sun dims and my childhood memories become less idyllic.”

And when Vice President Joe Biden – or “Joe” — emailed after his debate with Paul Ryan, Hansen-Fliedner wrote back: “I felt your pale eyes were telling something to me beyond words. My brain says it is just a delusion where you meant to convey nothing. My heart says there is definitely something in your heart which is not letting go of me.”

Here’s one exchange:

Dylan –

This is the last time we’ll do this.

Tonight is the campaign’s final FEC deadline.

I’m asking you to chip in before midnight.

Right now, this race is very close — the outcome will come down to what we do with the next 20 days.

If we win, it’ll be because each of us stepped up to do our part at moments like this.

Donate $5 or more today, and stand with me for the final weeks of my last campaign:

Thank you,

Barack

My sweet and Darling Barack

Today a feel very happy because I notice at each and every instant the importance you represent to me and the strength you transmit, so that I can face whichever obstacle without fear or insecurity, moved only by an infinite will to make you as happy as I feel this minute.

You are gorgeous and adorable, capable of making me realize how good it is to feel alive, how good it is that your presence makes me grow and transform into a better person, capable of turning dreams into reality and make the result of those dreams, now shared by us both, and eternalizing then into an ambience of harmony, care and love.

My life without you would lack meaning, lack sense. Without you I would be nothing but a wandering errant, searching for my path that could lead me to happiness’s door. But with you around, by my side, close to me, I’m certain of having made the right, safer and yet romantic choice. I feel that all this love and care, that I share here with you, goes both ways and it fills my heart with peace and joy. Gazing endlessly into your deep yet sweet eyes, I realize the tender and pure light that pours from your heart and soul.

I shall never let this feeling that joins us perish. Never, by any chance, let us dript away from love’s true path, built on complicity and affection.

I love you and forever will!

Love,

Dylan

The sad part here is that Sir Creeps A Lot is likely not alone in his admiration.

Major League Baseball Players Trying to Front-Load Contracts to Avoid Obama Tax Hikes

November 23, 2012 at 5:54 pm (Adam Dunn, Barack Obama, C.C. Sabathia, Carl Crawford, Contracts, Front-load, Greg Genske, Major League Baseball, Mitt Romney, Taxes, Vernon Wells)

It looks like major league baseball players, much like businesses, are proactively and pessimistically trying to avoid the disaster that is the looming second-term Obama economy.

Via My Fox NY:

Team executives and agents wandered into the Agave Sunset lounge at the resort where the general managers’ meetings were held in Indian Wells, Calif. Four of the six flat-screen televisions were showing election coverage, with the other two turned to sports.

President Barack Obama’s victory over Mitt Romney was of as much interest to baseball’s money men as the game scores, given the millions of dollars routinely guaranteed in player contracts these days.

As free agents negotiate deals this offseason, tax policy is an area that comes up along with the usual issues. Some players are wrangling for as much money as they can get before the end of the year to avoid a take hike in 2013.

“Front-loading would make sense if at all possible as tax rates will definitely go up on January 1st on all high-income taxpayers,” agent Greg Genske said in an email. “The only question is HOW MUCH will the rates increase????”

Genske of course should be wary of the tax implications lurking for his clients in 2013.  After all, his clients currently represent nearly $100 million in contract values for the 2013 season.  Genske represents such clients as C.C. Sabathia, Vernon Wells, Carl Crawford, and Adam Dunn.

Nobody expects to feel sorry for MLB players, but the point here is that prevailing wisdom in the player agent field is to get your money up front, and get it before President Obama can take it away.

Perhaps advice we should all be following…

Bill Clinton: Who Wants a President Who ‘Knowingly, Repeatedly Tells You Something He Knows Isn’t True?’

November 6, 2012 at 3:18 pm (2012 Election, Ambassador Stevens, Barack Obama, Benghazi, Bill Clinton, Jay Carney, Libya, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Susan Rice)

“You are laughing, but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true? When I was a kid, if I got my hand caught in the cookie jar, where it wasn’t supposed to be, I turned red in my face, and I took my hand out of the cookie jar.”

–  Bill Clinton, Philadelphia, November 5th
We here at the Mental Recession, couldn’t agree more.  So we urge Mr. Clinton to please tell the Obama administration to get their damn hands out of the cookie jar when it comes to Benghazi.

Reverend Who Delivered Benediction at Obama’s Inauguration Says All Whites Are Going To Hell

November 1, 2012 at 10:23 am (2008 Election, Barack Obama, Benediction, Georgia, Inauguration, Joseph Lowery, Reverend)

Barack Obama?  Controversial, racist preacher?

Nah…

Via the Georgia Tipsheet: 

The man who delivered the benediction at President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration said that he believes, as he once did in his “militant” youth, that all whites are hell-bound.

The Rev. Joseph Lowery, a patriarch of the civil rights movement and close ally of the president, said at a weekend rally in central Georgia that the “level and hatred and bitterness” borne of this election had made him a believer that whites were going to hell.

Lowery said, according to the Monroe County Reporter, it was the same belief he held at the height of the civil rights movement. Eventually he mellowed, believing that not all whites, rather only “most,” would get their brimstone comeuppance.

“Now,” the local newsweekly reported, “he is back to where he was.”

So the man went from delivering the benediction for the post-racial President, to four years later rekindling a previously held belief that all whites were Hell-bound? 

In other words, the most racially polarizing Presidency in modern history turned a mellowed out racist back into being a hardcore racist.

Read the rest of the report to see some more controversial comments from the reverend.

VA Congressman’s Son Caught Facilitating Voter Fraud and Forgery; UPDATE: Congressman Moran’s Son Resigns

October 24, 2012 at 3:18 pm (Barack Obama, Congress, Forgery, Fraud, James O'Keefe, Jim Moran, Patrick Moran, Project Veritas, Tim Kaine, Virginia, Voter Fraud)

Congressman Jim Moran

It was just yesterday that Congressman Jim Moran of Virginia sent a letter to Eric Holder’s Department of Justice asking him to look into allegations of voter fraud.  Turns out the Congressman may want to start investigating his own son.

Patrick Moran, who also serves as Jim Moran’s campaign Field Director, has been caught in yet another revealing investigation by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.  The younger Moran is caught in the following video clip offering advice to a reporter on how to vote 100 times in Virginia, and also offers explicit instruction on how to fabricate utility bills in order comply with Virginia’s new voter ID law.

It is the first time a sitting Congressman has been implicated in one of these stings.

From Project Veritas:

Project Veritas has released a new investigation that exposes Representative Jim Moran’s Field Director, Patrick Moran, conspiring to commit election fraud.

When approached by an undercover investigator for advice on how to steal the votes of more than 100 people, Moran advised falsifying documents to satisfy Virginia’s new voter ID law. He said, “Bank statement obviously would be tough, but they can fake a utility bill with ease.”

Moran went on to clarify that, “You’d have to forge it.”

Announcing the release, James O’Keefe said, “This is the most damning evidence to date of the scope of voter fraud in this country. Patrick Moran is not only the son of an 11-term Congressman, but is also the Field Director on his father’s re-election campaign.

“If anyone should be opposed to voter fraud it’s him. Yet he actively encouraged our investigator to forge documents and pose as a pollster to disenfranchise registered voters in Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland.”

Watchdog.org provides the staggering legal ramifications of this video:

After raising legal and practical concerns, Patrick Moran, son of Virginia Democrat James Moran, encouraged the reporter to create phony utility bills that would allow others to cast multiple votes in the November 6 election.

Supporters of stronger voter ID laws seized on the video as evidence of widespread corruption among liberal get-out-the-vote organizations.

“What he’s doing is soliciting fraudulent voter registrations and fraudulent ballots, and that’s a federal crime,” said Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. “Even attempting to do that is federal crime — you don’t have to go through with it. Attempting it is a crime.”

Blogger Stacey on the Right concurs that their is some illegal activity here:

“I’m pretty sure that some laws are admitted to being broken here.”

She adds that, “the allegation that there simply isn’t voter fraud and hence no need whatsoever for laws pertaining to voter ID is so disproven”.

O’Keefe adds, “Unfortunately, what Patrick Moran doesn’t respect is the integrity of our elections. He would rather win by fraud than risk seeing the political positions of his father, Barack Obama and Tim Kaine rejected by the legitimate voters of Virginia.”

Indeed, the video is quite damning for the Moran campaign, and for Virginia Democrats in general.

Patrick Moran has resigned amid the controversy.

Via TPM:

Patrick Moran, son of Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA), resigned from his father’s campaign on Wednesday after conservative activist James O’Keefe released a video that appears to show him offering advice to an undercover videographer who claimed to want to commit voter fraud.

“Effective immediately, I have resigned from the Moran for Congress campaign,” Patrick Moran said in a statement to TPM sent from his campaign email address.

Iowa Voters Take Out Full Page Newspaper Ad Apologizing for Voting Obama in 2008

October 17, 2012 at 3:56 pm (2008 Election, 2012 Election, Apology, Barack Obama, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Mitt Romney, Sorry)

Heh.

Don’t worry Iowa voters, many, many people should be making the same apology in newspapers throughout the country.  Here’s hoping they apologize at the voting booth in November.

Des Moines Register (h/t Weasel Zippers):

A full-page Mitt Romney campaign ad in today’s Cedar Rapids Gazette takes the form of an open letter from 13 Iowans who say they voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 but regret their choice and won’t do so again in 2012.

The letter is phrased as an apology, and lays out a case for why Romney, the Republican nominee is a better choice this time around.

“Mitt Romney will deliver the real recovery that President Obama has failed to bring, he’ll get Americans working again, and he’ll turn our economy around,” the letter says.

Here is a copy of the letter:

Video: Is This Man Seriously the Leader of the Free World?

October 9, 2012 at 12:59 pm (2012 Elections, Barack Obama, Big Bird, Elmo, Mitt Romney, Sesame Street, Wall Street)

While last weeks debate clearly showed some fundamental differences in both Presidential candidates, perhaps this weeks dueling speeches make it even more crystal clear – Obama wasn’t presidential material in 2008, and he hasn’t improved in that regard in four years.

Watch this video and think to yourself, this is the President of the United States speaking…

Elmo is heading for the border in a white suburban … like OJ?
This man has nothing – nothing – to run on.  He can not talk about foreign policy, Libya, the economy – nothing of substance.  He has to talk about government funding of PBS and Big Bird.
Don’t believe me?  Obama, in the last few days, has mentioned Big Bird eight times in his speeches, Elmo five.
Libya and the economy?  Zero

Now contrast that with this man…
Which man looks like a leader, and which one looks like a joke?
Perhaps President Obama himself said it best…
“If you don’t have a record to run on … you make a big election about small things.” – Barack Obama, 2008
Mr. President, your campaign is about small things.  Your administration has provided nothing but small things.  America deserves bigger.  We deserve better.

Bill Maher on Obama: ‘Looked Like He Took My Million and Spent It All on Weed’

October 6, 2012 at 7:18 pm (2012 Election, Barack Obama, Bill Maher, Debate, Mitt Romney, President Obama)

Obama supporter Bill Maher has been ripping into the President of late with his post-debate analysis.  Earlier this week he whined that the President “looks like he DOES need a teleprompter’.

Last night, he took another shot at Obama’s debate performance.

Via Mediaite:

Bill Maher admitted he was not happy with how President Obama did during his first big debate this week. He told his audience that Obama undeniably “sucked” during the debate, and surmised that the million dollars he gave to the campaign was probably spent on weed.

Maher surmised that because Wednesday was Obama’s anniversary, “he apparently had the sex first and was completely spent” for the debate. He contrasted Romney looking “charged up” with Obama looking like Michael Jackson on diprivan. Maher admitted that Obama “sucked” during the debate, and made a joke referencing the money he gave to the pro-Obama Super PAC.

“He looked tired. He had trouble getting his answers out. It looked like he took my million and spent it all on weed.”

Maher also observed that “Obama looked so dead, Romney tried to baptize him.”

Hey, aren’t drug references regarding the President considered racist?

Libs Accuse Romney of Dyeing His Face Brown to Appeal to Latino Voters

September 21, 2012 at 10:44 am (Barack Obama, Brownface, Democratic Underground, Dyeing Brown, Gawker, Hillary Clinton, Huffington post, Latino, Mitt Romney, Skin Color, Univision)

Waiting for the punchline?  There isn’t one.

This isn’t a satirical article, ala The Onion.  Nor is it a joke.

Liberal websites Gawker, the Huffington Post, and Democratic Underground are actually pushing the conspiracy theory that Mitt Romney dyed his face brown for an interview on Univision, in an attempt to appeal to Latino voters.

Here’s the Gawker write-up:

Mitt Romney currently trails President Obama among registered Latino voters by nearly 40%, and getting caught saying things like “it would be helpful to be Latino” certainly isn’t helping.

But has it gotten so bad that Romney is now resorting to “brownface” in order to make himself more appealing to Univision viewers?  Democratic Underground has looked at the photo above from last night’s “presidential forum”and concluded that, yes, Romney definitely “dyed his face brown.”

I would imagine it has to actually physically hurt a person to be this level of stupid.

Of course, these liberal sites do not necessarily concentrate their stupidity on any one group, they tend to spread it around.

Remember when the Huffington Post was accusing a Hillary Clinton ad of darkening the face of Barack Obama to make him look more ‘threatening’?

Suddenly the Media Cares About Religion and Presidential Candidates

September 10, 2012 at 9:00 am (2012 Election, Barack Obama, Jeremiah Wright, Mainstream Media, Mitt Romney, Mormon, President Obama, Religion)

Expect the media to thoroughly investigate the Mormon religion and tie Presidential candidate Mitt Romney to its more controversial aspects in the coming months.

David Gregory of Face the Nation started off yesterday with some brief questions.

In a rare appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney took on a personal issue that has resisted talking about in the past: his religion.

Host David Gregory asked the GOP presidential hopeful what he thought a successful run this fall would mean to Mormons in America.

“I’m sure a number of members of my faith are proud of the fact that someone of my faith and our faith is able to run for president,” Romney said. “My own reaction is, I’ve got so many challenges ahead of me, I don’t think so much about the impact this has on the church day to day, but more about what kind of impact I want to have on the electorate and what it takes to become elected president.”

Romney emphasized the importance of the ethical foundations his religion had taught him.

In 2008, the media failed to ask a similar question of Barack Obama.  A question along the lines of, “What do you think a successful run this fall would mean to your pastor Jeremiah Wright”?

As a public service reminder (because that’s what we do), here is a little smattering of the President’s religion and pastor which was all but ignored as he ran for office.

If the mainstream media wants to analyze religion, it should be done so for each of the candidates.  Wright was Obama’s spiritual mentor for over twenty years, so please, let’s discuss start talking about this.
