Cape Cod Today opens up a little

I stopped following Cape Cod Today a few years ago because of their one-sided viewpoints especially when it comes to placing comments after a news commentary.  Dare I say anything derogatory of Ted Kennedy (as I did once) was more than discriminatory.  Censhorship is a better adjective!  (Needless to say, my comment was rejected albeit it was the truth.)  But that's alright, for I understand the mindset of closed minds... Having been brought up in the area I have an intimate understanding of where they are coming from.  Heck, my dad knew John F. Kennedy and I had the oppurtunity to meet Robert Kennedy (At that meeting the then Attorney General recalled my dad's associataion.).  ...but enough of that!  My point is that Cape Cod Today is a very liberal and mirrors the rhetoric of it's Boston neighbor, The Boston Globe and that other piece just over 200 miles down the road, The New York Times.  To say that I stopped following the Cape's equivalent of a town crier does not mean that I do not check in from time to time...just an occasional look at some link sent to me by my better half.  And that's where I'm at now...  After seeing the following post
(Blogs: Views from Cape Cod) I may have a change of heart and up my frequency.  Maybe their minds are beginning to open's good to see a bit of the truth once in awhile! Good job!!!  ~ Norman E. Hooben

Cape Cod, what it was and what it has become.

"You know, we don't trot out this stuff as trophies,
Americans and people around the world are glad that he's gone.
But we don't need to "spike the football."
Seems you do Mr. President, seeing how you've been an abject failure on just about everything you've touched since taking office in 2009. How many times have we heard this coming from the Obama/Biden dog and pony show. In case you missed it, the Democrats "spiked the football" in Charlotte 21 times. And the Cairo Embassy responds to the murder of Christopher Stevens and three others by alluding that it was caused by a movie. Well spike this!

So who are the "misguided individuals" condemned for hurting the "religious feelings of Muslims"?
Was it an a ham & egger American movie maker whose film "Innocence of Muslims" was shown on a Salafist run TV channel portraying Mohammed and his followers in a manner insulting of Islam? Or was it the arrogant armature in the White House and his sidekick who keep reminding the world with all the bravado they can muster, "We killed Osama! I'm surprised Joe "Gaff-O-Matic" Biden didn't add, "And we wrapped him in bacon before feeding the fish". Although, in the mind of the POTUS it seems to run like this; "I planned it all by myself, flew the helicopter, jumped out, scaled the wall, identified the target, and was solely responsible for "Geronimo EKIA".
Now.....what were they chanting at the embassy?
"Bad Movie !Bad Movie!" ?
    Or were they chanting...
       "Obama! Obama! We are all Osama!" ?
Since we're on the subject and have a resident FactCheck-er on board.....
Here's what, perhaps a soon to be clerk in a “Indian accented” neighborhood 7-11 somewhere in Delaware said, after "spiking the football".....
“Folks, Governor Romney didn’t see things that way. When he was asked about bin Laden in 2007, here’s what he said. He said, “It’s not worth moving heaven and earth and spending billions of dollars just to catch one person.”
What our next President actually said, (if anyone cares about the truth and context).
“I think, I wouldn’t want to over-concentrate on Bin Laden. He’s one of many, many people who are involved in this global Jihadist effort.
He’s by no means the only leader. It’s a very diverse group – Hamas, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood and of course different names throughout the world.
It’s not worth moving heaven and earth and spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person. It is worth fashioning and executing an effective strategy to defeat global, violent Jihad and I have a plan for doing that.” Would that be considered a lie Joe?
BTW, wasn't OBL basically a side note in history when he was killed, living in a sh*thole, albeit a large sh*thole, with failing kidneys, whiling away his last days drinking Bud Light and watching porn? He never even had the foresight to load his personal weapons. Pretty big threat he was, yes indeed.....GO-BAMA!
Moving on.....
As far as Government Motors, they still owe the taxpayer $25 Bil, shut down production of the brainchild VOLT for the second time after reported losses of $50K per unit and their Altman Z Score shows them headed for the sh*tter once again. On the bright side, GM has some lovely new plants over in China but it's a bit of a commute.
Remember when Mitt was crucified for his attitude towards the bailout?
Can you say.....
How do you like them apples?
Depending on how you look at it, Osama is still alive and well and living in the hearts of radical Islamic jihadists everywhere, whereas General Motors is on life support in critical condition. Might as well stick a fork in "Obama/Biden 2012".

Thanks Peter for your comment. How's Florida treating you now-a-days? I'm currently in Alabama and wont be back to the Cape until sometime mid October.
