Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Thursday, June 24, 2010 Airbrushes Out The Betray Us Ad, the leftwing political organization has airbrushed away the General Betray Us advertisement from it's website.  This is rather's not like no one remembers it.  Not is it unavailable on the web.  It's amusing because this organization received special advertisement rates to run in in the NY Times...

Now, with General Petreus' appointment to replace the hapless McChrystal in Afghanistan, Gen. P is now the darling of the left...and it's no longer kosher to insult him...

In case you've missed it here's the ad:

But as always, the left's hypocrisy is on display's conveniently forgotten that Mr. Obama, Mrs. Clinton, et al, slammed General P during the Senate hearings...but now we're to suspend our disbelief that that vilifying episode ever happened.

UPDATE:  The Anchoress has some interesting points to make and links to others as well: 
They are very busy bees. Over at Ann Althouse’s site, one comment began the arduous work of re-writing history on the internet with this forehead-slapper:

 The same guy who the right wing dubbed “General Betrayus”…that same guy. I do wish I was born with the short life memories possessed by the neuvo-recht.
Then there's this link to the Chicago Sun-Times story that shows Obama chose not to vote (or voted present) on the bill introduced by Sen John Cornyn (R-TX) condeming that, the state senator who voted present over 100 times in the IL senate, chose not to vote in the US Senate...

Over at they have some interesting things to say, but they had this video of Mr. Obama questioning Gen P in 2007...
