The Siesta Keyster breaks down the GOP presidential field: let’s meet Herman and Tim

June 1, 2011

Over the last 28 months, the investigative team at the Siesta Keyster has brought you gigabytes of data on Barack Obama. We’ve objectively reported on his programs and policies, both domestic and foreign, in our ceaseless quest to provide readers with fact-based analysis on which to base their electoral decision in the 2012 presidential election.

Today, we release the first of our Special Reports: You Decide 2012 on GOP candidates for the highest-office in the land. We’ll break down their strengths, weaknesses, major policy platforms and the all-important intangibles — personal traits that a man or woman should possess to be Leader of the Free World.

After watching President Obama put this nation through a wood chipper since January 2009, it’s tempting to assume that Republicans could nominate the Michelin Man or Kim Jong-il and still win the presidency.

However, remember that this is a country where The Hangover Part II was by far the top-grossing movie last week and Lady Gaga is regarded by many as a role model. If that’s not enough to have you file for emigrant status for Australia, here are three more terrifying words that demonstrate the trouble we’re in: Senator Al Franken.

Yes, it’s time to engage in the most-important election in U.S. history. So let’s meet the first two Republications vying for our support in November 2012.

Herman Cain: Ready and able to restore America's greatness

Barack: ‘I just wish Hamas could have joined me for a Guinness in Ireland, it would have been even more fun!’

May 25, 2011

It was another remarkable week during the increasingly curious reign of Barack Hussein Obama. In the span of just six days, BHO:

  • Demanded that Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East and formerly our closest ally, commit suicide
  • Crudely insulted the U.K., formerly our closest ally in Europe
  • Staged an amateurish media event that involved chugging beer in Ireland (way to be a role model, Barry!), mere hours after the worst tornado in recent U.S. history decimated a Missouri city
  • Committed a gaffe so profound, the mainstream media is still scrambling to cover it up in hopes that the American people won’t learn that our President doesn’t, well, know what year it is
  • 'Bibi didn't like my ideas for destroying Israel but they were really well received in Tehran!"


    Our Dear Leader began his latest misadventures last week by giving a major speech on the Middle East. Any time this president wades into foreign affairs, our allies brace for an assault, while dictators and thugs get ready for their spoils.

    Right on cue, Barack told the world that the official U.S. policy is for Israel to be sliced in two, submit to terrorists who dream of killing every Jew in the world, and honestly, just disappear so the peace-loving Palestinians can become an Iranian satellite state dedicated to expanding the global market for IEDs.

    Here’s the Siesta Keyster’s one-sentence summary of President Obama’s plan for peace in the Middle East: “All Israel has to do is hand over the West Bank, Jerusalem and all its military assets to Hamas, and I’ll get another Nobel Peace Prize!”

    The next day, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demonstrated to Barry and the world what a leader looks like. In nine spellbinding minutes, Bibi politely, but forcefully, told Obama that everything that BHO proposed the day before was “not going to happen” because it would mean the end of Israel.

    Our president — legs crossed like a woman, face pinched, fist jammed into mouth — resembled a McDonald’s employee being reprimanded for not properly cleaning the fryer grease drain. While Obama’s news-media supporters screeched about a foreign leader insulting their guy, Obama, as he always does when he screws up domestically, fled from the room shouting “road trip!”

    ''The beer they served me in Ireland was warm but I didn't have the heart to tell them because I need the Irish vote in 2012!'

    The next thing we know, O’Bama was pounding Guinness in some damp Irish hamlet, celebrating his Irish roots while Katie Couric and company swooned over his statesmanlike alcohol consumption. Is it just the Keyster, but does Obama have roots in Kenya, Indonesia, Hawaii, Egypt, Germany, Bahrain, Monaco, Tuvalu, Liechtenstein and every other backwater where a U.S. voter might have ancestors?

    The smartest guy in the room

    But our feckless prez was not done. As he and Michelle madly toured the U.K., he signed the guest book at Westminster Abbey “24 May 2008.” The news media, of course, pounced on his stunning miscue with front-page stories about how ignorant Sarah Palin is because she likes to hunt.

    And finally, Barry shredded protocol in England yesterday when his toast to Queen Elizabeth careened off the tracks. In response, the New York Times ran an investigative piece on how Herman Cain actually isn’t black because he’s conservative.

    Keyster to Barack: ‘Good job letting the SEALs do their jobs, now grow up’

    May 18, 2011

    Loyal readers of the Siesta Keyster may have noticed that our commentary about President Obama can, on rare occasion, get a little blunt. While our goal is to provide you with fact-based analysis of current and political affairs, there have been times when we regrettably failed to meet the exceedingly high standards by which we judge ourselves.

    Barack: 'I've changed my campaign materials for 2012 to remind voters how tough I am!'

    In all candor, last November we crossed the line of edifying political discourse when we opined: “Obama combines the leadership skills of Barney Fife, the courage of Neville Chamberlain and the charm of Pol Pot.”

    Further, we are not proud that last January, when discussing BHO’s economic policies, we wrote: “By comparison, our Dear Leader makes Zimbabwean nut job Robert Mugabe look like Arthur Laffer. If Barry has his way, we’ll be soon paying $100 trillion for a loaf of bread at a dreary government store, just like the traumatized residents of Harare.”

    'Just the facts, ma'am, just the facts...'

    While it is unlikely the editorial board of the Siesta Keyster will endorse BHO in the 2012 presidental election, we also are honest enough to commend him in the unlikely event he makes a good decision. So for the first time since January 20, 2009, the Keyster says: “Well done, Mr. President. You let the courageous SEALs take out a vicious murderer and enemy of freedom.”

    However, in the spirit of objectivity, we also must gently remind readers that that eliminating OBL does not in any way negate this fact: Barack Obama is, without question, the worst president in U.S. history. As in atrocious, abominable, awful, dreadful, pitiful, lousy, rotten and fetid.

    Only Obama has the audacity to take the SEALs success — something the world has anticipated for nine years — and make it a hyper-partisan campaign platform. From our strictly impartial and unbiased perspective: his childish victory laps and crude attempts to politically capitalize on the SEAL double-tap makes Pee Wee Herman look like Winston Churchill.

    'I've really matured as president; I didn't even get mad when the SEALs interrupted my golf game!'

    The wreckage the Obama administration has strewn throughout this country and the world will reverberate for generations. The Keyster archives are chock-a-block with data concerning the appalling impact of BHO’s policies on everything from the economy to national security. Decorum prevents us from listing them all in a single article without providing grief counselors for every reader, or at least flight bags.

    So if we have, at times, been indiscreet in our treatment of our 44th president, we humbly ask your forgiveness. Our goal is to dispassionately bring you insights and commentary, so the unmitigated fiasco that is Barack Obama is not repeated by gullible voters on November 6, 2012.

    Objectively yours,

    The Siesta Keyster

    ‘Feel the sun on your face. You are content, at peace. Wonderful. Now… the world as you know it is about to end!!!’

    April 26, 2011

    Picture yourself on a quiet tropical beach. You feel the sun, warm on your face. The gentle surf laps at your toes. With each breath, you are filled with the sweet scent of the coconut and mango trees that grow down to the water’s edge. You relax your jaw and feel the tension flow from your face, your fingers and your toes. You are completely calm and at peace.

    'The tension melts from your body as you bathe in the tropical splendor...'

    You are now ready for today’s message: our nation’s government debt is actually north of $130 trillion. The U.S. and most state governments are houses of cards.  They will begin falling in a few short years. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth! Now!!

    Yes, our profligate president and his Democrat allies are warring with Republicans over raising the current $14.3 trillion debt ceiling.  Even Obama, who has run up more debt than every leader of every nation of all time combined, acknowledges we may have to actually, ah, limit spending increases just a little. You know, “live within our means” by racking up multi-trillion deficits in perpetuity.

    'Gently rock back and forth as the warm breezes carress your body...'

    Frankly, it’s all chump change compared to the actual debt that’s going to start coming due in a very short time. You are still on that tropical beach! Put down that sharp object and get back on your towel this instant!!

    Here’s the terrifying math, courtesy of Kevin D. Williamson of the National Review.

    • U.S. government debt: $14.3 trillion
    • State and local government debt: $2.5 trillion
    • Government unfunded pension obligations: $3 trillion
    • Unfunded state medical benefits: $1 trillion

    Scary, eh what? Illinois, where Obama and his cronies honed their fiscal “skills,” will be the first domino to topple, probably in 2013 or 2014. But we still haven’t gotten to the big stuff. Remember, you are inhaling fragrant coconut and mango! Do not operate heavy equipment!!

    • Liabilities for Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid: $110 trillion
    • Amount saved up to pay for Social Security and Medicare/caid: $0
    • Liabilities for Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac: $1 trillion

    'Driven to the brink by Barry...'

    Listen to the waves as they lap along the white sand beach.  You feel the sun and are, really, really angry.  Ready to grab the nearest politician and… wait, release the tension from your fists, you are calm!!  Completely relaxed!!! You are at peace!!!!

    Barack on his budget: ‘Taxes are the only way to create jobs and prosperity!”

    April 20, 2011

    After his first 2012 budget proposal with its $1 trillion-plus deficit was laughed out of the public arena last February, our President has been forced by polling data to re-engage on the nation’s dismal financial situation.

    'All the Sesame Street characters are joining my reelection campaign and Richard Trumka has already trained them!"

    In a series of bitter and vindictive speeches recently, BHO’s “Violent Torpedo of Deception” tour is generating more bad reviews than Britney Spears’ recent performance as Mimi in the Met’s production of La boheme. For those who missed Barack’s latest iteration of Deficit Hawk, here’s the Siesta Keyster’s summary:

    “Republicans want to kill disabled children, women, seniors and minorities so they can give your money to white billionaires… but only the evil ones like the Koch brothers, not the good billionaires like my dear friends George Soros, Steve Spielberg and Sergey Brin, who are financing my reelection campaign. Therefore, I’m proposing higher taxes on anyone making more than $8 an hour so we can increase funding for Planned Parenthood, PBS, government workers and Michelle’s vegetable garden.”

    Meanwhile, rating agency S&P threw up all over Barry’s fiscal house this week by downgrading its outlook for the U.S. from “stable” to “train wreck.”

    'High gas prices are not important because my limo is always full!'

    In response, the Los Angeles Times ran a front-page story by its 27-person investigative team revealing that Michele Bachmann shops at T.J. Maxx and doesn’t even know who Jimmy Choo is. “What is even more shocking,” the Times wrote, “is that Congresswoman Bachmann doesn’t have truffle oil in her kitchen.”

    The strategy of Team Obama is clear: force Republicans to offer specifics for fending off bankruptcy and then attack every cut as tantamount to murder. After all, when your presidential record consists of creating international chaos by a foreign policy of “peace through appeasement,” Greecifying our nation’s finances and living like Louis XV with a 747, you have no choice but to go negative.

    Republican plan to save the country: cut spending
    Democrat plan to save the country: Who wants to save the country? Let’s raise taxes!

    With the nation’s “media” providing unwavering support, Obama knows he has a decent shot at staying in the White House through 2016. Who cares if unemployment is 9%, Jihadists take over the entire Middle East with his support and gas costs $7 a gallon? As long as Michelle can go on The View and get all teary about childhood obesity while Barry can golf every weekend, all is well.

    If you want to see what the future looks like should America sign up for another four years of Obama’s class warfare, just watch recent video of his anarchists and union thugs at work in Wisconsin. Not a pretty sight for the freest and most prosperous nation the world has ever known.

    Barack: ‘My first term is going great but it’s going to take me another four years to finish this country off!’

    April 7, 2011

    The federal debt is at $14.3 trillion, spiraling toward the point of no return. Some eight million jobs have permanently disappeared, while a record 22.2 million Americans work for the government. The U.S. foreign policy of “Peace through Appeasement” has emboldened our enemies and led to worldwide chaos. Gas is over $4 a gallon and rising faster that 10 packs of yeast in a cup of warm flour. Inflation, ginned up by Charlie Sheen-like fiscal and monetary policies, is roaring inexorably toward the American consumer.

    'If Sarah gets the Republican nomination, I've got a new haircut all ready to go!'

    For some reason, none of these achievements made it into President Obama’s announcement this week that, “Hey, with everything in fine shape, I’m running for reelection in 2012!”

    Ever the techno-hipster, our Vacationer-in-Chief relied on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and indigenous drum circles to make one of the most predictable proclamations in recent history (trailing only Bret Farve’s tearful retirement dramas). No old-fashioned press conferences for our Blackberry-toting Prez. Besides, that would risk Barry having to respond to a tough question from Fox News.

    BHO also let it be known that he’s going to raise a record $1 billion from unions and trial lawyers to convince voters that “Winning the Future” is not the lamest slogan in the history of presidential campaigns. In response, CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN simultaneously stated that they will provide the Obama campaign with free air time during their newscasts on a dollar-for-dollar match.

    'I'm excited to announce that Rev. Wright will join my reelection campaign to court the Jewish vote!'

    NBC (National Barack Channel) kicks things off next month with a 13-part mini series, “Barack Obama and the White House: A Match Made in Heaven.” The series will be narrated by Bill Ayers and Andy Griffith, while Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez will provide the Spanish voice-over.

    Not to be outdone, New York Times publisher Arthur “We Used to Be Relevant” Sulzberger held his own video conference. The half-bright scion said that both Paul Krugman and Maureen Dowd would use every column between now and election day 2012 to trash Republicans, especially conservative women and minorities, who after all, should know better.

    “Sure, the United States goes bankrupt after President Obama’s second term, my mother showed me how to figure that out on my slide rule. But it beats having somebody in the White House who won’t do whatever my editorial writers dream up!” Sulzberger said.

    'I'm really happy to have the Pinch and the Times back on board as the official newspaper for my 2012 reelection!

    Most semi-coherent libs (there reportedly are several in the nation) know that Obama can’t possibly win if he campaigns on his record. Their only hope: go to the standard Democrat playbook and scare seniors and soccer moms.

    Right on cue: after Republicans this week unveiled a 2012 budget that actually makes some fiscal sense, Dems were out in force, screeching about grannie being force fed kibbles by John Boehner while Paul Ryan padlocks the doors to every public school. Pay no attention to little niggles such as Obamacare stripping $400 billion from Medicare and death panels shoving seniors into hospice as soon as they get a hangnail.

    The full fury of Obama’s news media and his unions, banker buds like Goldman Sachs and Silicon Valley limousine liberals will be directed at conservatives like never before. Meanwhile, our Dear Leader will spend his time between now and November 6, 2012 in full campaign mode, interrupted only by numerous international vacations and glittering White House parties.

    Barack: “My new war in Libya’s going great and I’m hoping for another Nobel peace prize!

    March 30, 2011

    Our President finally addressed the nation on his war in Libya. In a rambling, hour-long address specifically slotted in before ABC‘s “Dancing with the Czars” (featuring those light-footed Obama appointees Ron Bloom and Todd Stern, who dazzled with their quick step and Viennese waltz, respectively), BHO laid out the mission in Libya.

    'As Commander-in-Chief, I've ordered our troops to carry light sabers and extra batteries in case the light goes out!'

    Even Barack’s cheerleaders in the New York Times and Washington Post struggled to make sense of the speech.  The Times led off their reporting thusly: “In a performance that showed his steely resolve, unsurpassed leadership skills and six-pack abs, President Obama said the Libyan action is, ah, well, hmm… Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann are scary right wingers who want to take away your Social Security!”

    For those who missed our Dear Leader’s talk, here is the Siesta Keyster’s concise summary of what scrolled across our Commander in Chief’s ‘prompter this week:

    This is a KMA (kinetic military action), which is a lot different from a war because I say so. It is intended to protect civilians from a brutal dictator who must leave office, although he can stay on as far as I’m concerned because we’re certainly not going to bother him. As Americans we must intervene to protect civilians; sure, more than one million Christians have been slaughtered by Jihadist invaders in nearby Darfur and that’s not important because CNN doesn’t have a bureau there. America must not act militarily without full approval of the United Nations, a wonderful organization that can have Libya, China, Pakistan and Cuba on its Human Rights Commission and still keep a straight face. The rebels in Libya are swell guys who just yearn for the right to impose Sharia and behead anyone they disagree with. The KMA will last a matter of days, although it’ll probably drag on for months if not years. The U.S. military, the world’s finest, will be placed under the command of a bunch of Euro-wienies from Brussels who think a Tomahawk missile is a John Wayne movie. Now I’ve got to go, Michelle and I are entertaining P Diddy and J Lo tonight and I’ve got an early tee time tomorrow.

    'The U.N. said I could chair a meeting if I put our military under its command!'

    Barack: ‘Being President is great: I get to declare war and go to Ipanema at the same time!’

    March 23, 2011

    During the nearly three weeks that the Siesta Keyster was away on assignment, President Obama’s legacy grew exponentially. Our 44th president, whose sole qualification for office was that he was “historic,” took actions that presidential scholars will be debating for centuries.

    'A lot of people don't know that the Constitution says that presidents have to reveal their brackets on national TV!'

    Unfortunately for our Dear Leader, even the committed lefties that own our nation’s ivy-covered halls of higher learning will soon be requiring their students to write 2,500 words on topics such as “Barack Obama: Grossly incompetent or born without a sense of shame?” and “President Obama: Idol or Idle?”

    Things have gotten so bad for BHO that even the New York Times (motto: “The News that Ooze!”) gently admonished their hero in an editorial entitled: “The best can still get better.”

    'Not too many people get to declare war and teach Brazilian kids how to play soccer!'

    So let’s look at the recent “firsts” that Barry racked up to go along with his previous antecedents such as “First President to Take the Oath of Office With His Hand on Rules for Radicals“:

    • First President to declare war while vacationing on a tropical beach
    • First President to declare war and then instantly turn over that war to France or NATO or the UN or Belize or anyone but his own military
    • First President to unveil his NCAA basketball brackets on prime time
    • First President to unveil his NCAA basketball brackets while an ally was in full nuclear meltdown
    • First President to turn an all-sports channel (ESPN) into an arm of his re-election campaign
    • First President to dance the samba and the tango on the same vacation
    • First President to play golf while tens of thousands of Japanese were simultaneously perishing in a natural disaster
    • First President to play more rounds of golf (813 as of March 23) than days in office (791 as of March 23)
    • First President to turn Air Force One into a minivan for his family’s vacation
    • First President to demand that Happy Meals be available on every flight of Air Force One

    Barack: ‘The Constitution doesn’t apply to me because I’m a lot smarter than the Founders!’

    March 3, 2011

    During their campaign to install Barack Obama as president, the U.S. “news” media created a mystique of their guy as a brilliant Constitutional scholar. Although Barry, in his own biographies, admits he spent more time in college pulling on a bong than studying original intent, it became “fact” that Obama was the smartest guy in the room.

    'I really smoked 'em at Harvard Law, they even made me editor of the Review!'

    We’ll leave it to psychologists to analyze the sort of person who writes two books about himself before the age of 40. However, the Siesta Keyster understands that Snooki is using the same literary agent that peddled Barack’s treatises for her new book, “Pentaquarks: The Search for the Missing Baryon.”

    But I digress: because Obama was editor of the Harvard Law Review (motto: “Semper Liberal!”) and can read really well from a teleprompter, the “media” thinks that George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and the other 39 men who signed the Constitution would swoon at our President saying: “Let me be clear, Joe Biden is an expert on high-speed rail because he had a Lionel HO gauge when he was a boy.”

    And so today, we have a U.S. President actively in contempt of multiple federal courts and violating his Constitutional duty to uphold laws. In response, the New York Times ran a 12-part series on Congresswoman Michele Bachmann entitled, “She must be dumb because she’s so cute.”

    'The Founders were a bunch of white dudes in wigs, so we're rewriting the Constitution to make it better!'

    It turns out President Obama doesn’t believe that all that Constitutional verbiage about checks and balances actually applies to him. After all, he’s trying to transform the nation.

    So if you’re in contempt of U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman about your illegal oil-drilling moratorium, who cares? The most important thing is to jack up gasoline prices so the federal government can sell their $40,000 Chevy Volts (advertising slogan: ‘The Volt: when a golf cart just won’t do”).

    It also explains how the Prez can announce last week that he’ll no longer enforce the Defense of Marriage Act (which was signed by noted conservative Bill Clinton) and be cheered on by the “press” corps. The Washington Post immediately ran a front-page story revealing that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is the love-child of Pol Pot and Imelda Marcos.

    That attitude also accounts for the “media” silence that ensued when the White House said it was ignoring a U.S. District Court ruling that Obamacare is not only unconstitutional, it’s a bigger threat to the nation’s health than a BK Monster Thickburger.

    The Siesta Keyster has learned exclusively that Dear Leader has tasked AG Eric Holder to rewrite the Constitution to atone for its “negative rights.” We have obtained a draft of their rewrite of the Preamble and present it publicly for the first time.

    “We the Progressives of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Global Community, establish Economic Justice, insure domestic Obedience, put everyone on general Welfare, and end the of Blessings of Liberty for those who don’t agree with us, do ordain and establish this Re-Constitution of the United States of America.”

     

    Barack: ‘We’ve got to encourage the protesters in Wisconsin or else those crazy Republicans might actually reduce taxes!’

    February 23, 2011

    Throughout the Middle East, millions of disaffected citizens are massing in hopes of overthrowing a rogue’s gallery of thugs and dictators.  In Libya, Iran, Yemen and other nations, protesters demanding regime change are being murdered by their own leaders.

    'We must preserve the rights of union workers because they pumped a half billion dollars into my last election campaign!'

    Meanwhile, brave protesters also took to the streets in Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana.  These courageous warriors, shrugging off the Midwest winter and their obligation to actually work, have taken to the ramparts to… ensure they never have a co-pay for their health insurance.

    Urged on and organized by President Obama and the usual coalition of labor and socialists, the Midwest labor actions are the very antithesis of what’s happening in the Middle East.

    The loony left is demanding that government never change, unless it happens to expand.  Public workers are fighting to continue receiving salaries and benefits far beyond what they could get in the private sector; who care if states go belly up, just as long as we get ours!

    'It was great of Jesse to take time off from shaking down big companies to support the public unions!'

    Things have gotten so desperate for Democrat/labor that they even even dug out Jesse Jackson for some serious rhyming.  Sample: “We won’t pay for health care! The governor is unfair! So we declare, we’ll make ’em despair!  Forget about my affairs, because a shakedown won’t impair!”

    Showing all the bravery and integrity of John Edwards using his cancer-stricken wife as a campaign prop, state Democrat lawmakers have fled their states in an hysterical attempt to preserve the status quo.  No sir, we can’t allow people to vote on bills with which we disagree!

    The scene in and outside the Capitol buildings in Madison, Columbus and Indianapolis were something right out of that classic Jane Fonda movie of 1974: “Down with the Capitalist Pigs, But Save My Government Grant.”

    Along with the predictable signs depicting Republicans as Hitler, Mussolini and Mubarek, there were also physicians handing out bogus medical excuses so teachers wouldn’t be docked any pay for skipping class to shriek in their bullhorns.

    Wasn’t it just a few weeks ago when our President lectured America and called for civility in political discourse?  Oops, we forgot that only applies to conservatives.  Our Dear Leader got in the spirit of the moment and called Gov. Walker’s proposal an “assault” on labor.

    The end results of the Midwest kerfuffles are critical to the future of our country.  Should labor succeed in overturning the will of the voters and preserve their right to endlessly drain taxpayers, we will resemble Greece, sooner rather than later.  But at least Barry will retain his main source of campaign funding!
