As we all know, I can get on my high horse at times when it comes to this failure of a President and both political parties in general. And of course, I haven’t been shy as to my disdain for the “mind dead” electorate and what they along with the pathetic so called journalists of the MSM had wrought unto this country. Well, after the talk down to the public called the State of the Union speech, one can guess I was ready to blow, especially with the MSM and others lauding President Bozo. And don’t even get me started on the sad spectacle of the entrenched establishment Republicans and their horrible “let’s destroy the party” attitude as to their campaigning. As such, two items caught my eye which tie in with the following tirade.
First, was the First Lady’s comments on an interview. First Lady Michelle Obama: “I guess it’s more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here and a strong woman. But that’s been an image that people have tried to paint of me since the day Barack announced. That I’m some angry black woman.”
As I have railed on in the past how I feel this President, his party and followers are race baiters of the highest degree, this comment did not surprise me. However, I cannot remember ever seeing anything accusing or pointing to Mrs. Obama as “an angry black woman” I swear, I’ve looked, but haven’t found it yet. So as such just another piece of proof as to the racial bias shown by this administration.
The second piece was about Gov. Brewer of Arizona and her “finger waggling” as it’s being called or in most cases her so called lack of respect for someone who certainly doesn’t deserve it, office be damned. This of course is not the first time the petulant little boy in the White house has talked down to someone who is in disagreement with his Anti-American leftist policies. From various news sources:
“ It was a tense moment on the tarmac.
President Obama, alighting from the stairs of Air Force One in Phoenix this afternoon, was greeted by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who handed him an envelope and the two exchanged what appeared to be some heated sentiments. At one point, she pointed her finger at him.
Asked afterward what happened, Brewer said, “He was a little disturbed about my book, Scorpions for Breakfast.
“I said to him that I have all the respect in the world for the office of the president. The book is what the book is. I asked him if he read the book. He said he read the excerpt,” she said, according to a pool report. “He didn’t feel that I had treated him cordially. I said I was sorry he felt that way but I didn’t get my sentence finished. Anyway, we’re glad he’s here. I’ll regroup.”
“It was though President Obama thought he could lecture me, and I would learn at his knee,” the governor wrote, calling his tone “patronizing.”
“He thinks he can humor me and then get rid of me,” Brewer wrote.
“But it was a pretty one-sided conversation,” Brewer said. “He was, I believe, condescending. And he was lecturing me about what we were going to do and how we were going to do it.”
On one of the sites I follow, Flopping Aces, I wrote the following. Of course I was taken to task for my references to dictators, etc. in my defense of Gov. Brewer:
“Just a reminder here. He is the President. HE IS NOT A KING! As Gov. Brewer said, she’ll respect the office, but she sure as hell does not have to respect the man, especially when the man is someone who seems to feel he is a king.
This President has more than once shown his disdain for the groveling masses, preferring to threaten rather than govern. After listening to his Bull S… session the other night, the only thing I can see is he now feels he is in fact the dictator he wants to be. What I saw harkens back to the days of Hitler, Stalin or whatever dictator you care to mention. For you libbies out there, I’m not referring to him as a murdering scum as Hitler was. However since most libbies refuse to even learn history, Hitler was a great orator who managed to fool the public with his lies while amassing power. when confronted, he pulled exactly what President Bozo did with Gov. Brewer. He talked down to, threatened, etc. and always took umbrage to anything bad written or said about him. That is historical fact! Of course, the leftists and for that matter the establishment RINO scum don’t bother to learn from the facts. Only power counts.
In this country we have the right to stand up to and speak out against those who would want to destroy our way of life. Gov. Brewer did this, first in her book and then face to face with the President. A citizen of the United States stood her ground to a wanna be tin horn dictator! Good for her. How sad that so many in this country refuse to stand for their basic rights!”
Of course, this brought a myriad of responses, one of which when I looked back through the thread
In my original answer to a commenter who asked me if I thought the President was being “uppity” below, I noted the President was not “uppity” In rereading the thread, it occurred to me that there was a racial element put in there by the commenter which I somehow missed and I just wanted to clarify myself. Having said that, once again, the race card is thrown as it is being thrown in the class warfare rhetoric coming from our President and his minions and this too is traitorous in my view.
“No, I don’t think he is uppity. I feel he is such an embarrassment to the office and the country that I could not remotely relate to someone who I feel is against everything I and our founding fathers hold dear! Practicing one’s right to Freedom of Speech and expression takes a lot of guts in this PC age of idiocy, especially considering one now becomes an enemy of the state in doing so! Gov. Brewer only did that.
The President is nothing except a man. He is the employee of every taxpaying citizen here in the U.S. We the People are his bosses. Personally, I have no use for arrogant elitist know it alls who tell me how to live my life. However I have absolutely no tolerance for people who i feel are traitors to our country and our way of life. In my lifetime of sixty years, I have seen many morons who once in office have turned against our founding principles and in effect became corrupt with the power, etc.
And followers of this site also know I rail against the establishment Republicans as well as the Leftist democrats and their Marxist/Socialist/Muslim loving leader. They are every bit as bad as this scumball is. but never in my life have I seen any President so openly hostile to this country and our ideals! When a man states as he did the other day here in Vegas that the individual cannot do it alone but in fact government must do it (I’m paraphrasing here) then something is terribly wrong if “We the People” in fact believe that!
The man in my estimation is a traitor to this country and its ideals! Uppity? NO! This man, his and his wife’s policies and beliefs as well as the scum political circus in D.C. is a cancer that is quickly destroying this great country of ours. I’ll be damned if I’m going to sit by and be quiet as so many are wont to do in this case for fear of jobs or whatever. Gov. Brewer stood her ground as she is allowed to do in this country!
Notice I allude to Hitler and other dictators in my first comment. That my friend is not my believing he is “uppity”. That is the cold hard fact that the brain dead electorate, choosing to believe the lies and false promises (the hands out mentality as I call it) rather that take responsibility for their own actions, an electorate that not only refuses to take their most sacred right, the right to vote seriously is now facing. “
Another commenter took me to task for among other things calling the President a scumball as well as showing him disrespect. The commenter is a Marine who served honorably and of course I respect his right to his opinion, much more so that some others. I answered him as follows when he accused me of in effect “being brave on the internet”. He was also upset I called Obama a traitor, something I truly believe to be true.
“As a born Chicago boy, I will say one thing that is fact! If President Obama were here in front of me, I would call him a traitor to his face. While I’ve always admired you for your service to our country, you do make me wonder sometimes. I call it as I see it (and yes, I can get quite crass, but unlike the politically correct, I don’t really care about name calling. That’s how I feel about him and most politicians and that’s what I call him) and would not be the least bit cowered in letting him know exactly what I feel. And don’t forget one other thing. The internet is in many ways the only way to get the truth out now. You sure as hell won’t get it from the MSM or the lying sacks of you know what we call politicians, headed as usual by our so called President. Respect the office? Yes. Respect the man in it? No? As I said, we are his bosses. He is not a king!
Read the sentence in my first response, especially the last part, “who I feel is against everything I and our founding fathers hold dear!” A traitor can come in many guises. In this case, the people, refusing to take their sacred duty as citizens and voters seriously and/or just being too greedy, lazy or stupid and believing the lies elected a person into office who is the personification of everything that is abhorrent to true Americans. His race baiting, his Marxist/Socialist policies, his utter disdain for the individual and so on. Everything he does in my view is Anti-American. We are a country founded on a set of ideals, ideals that made us the greatest country to ever exist, yet we have people defending this guy, his policies and the leftist agenda. Yet everything this guy espouses is in stark contrast to our founding principles. That in my view makes him a traitor!”
This particular commenter than came back in effect accusing me of sitting on my butt and only commenting on the ”internet”:
“I take a little umbrage in the “get up and do something” comment. I practice what I preach. I vote after I have fully educated myself as to the pros and cons of any candidate. As such, I would if warranted vote for someone of any party that I felt could do the job correctly. I speak out, not only on the internet. As for blaming the MSM, I am not putting the blame squarely on them. There are so many other causes of the voter stupidity out there such as the “Dumbing down of our schools” (I believe the late Senator Moynihan coined that phrase? And my gosh, he was a Democrat!) , the ultra left causes being pushed by the D.C. entrenched morons (for which I have always blamed both parties) and so on. The fact is that the MSM is nothing more than the propaganda arm of the left, pure and simple.
While I point out how I feel as to the guy in the White House (and please understand. I realize the President is the C in C and as an ex Marine you hold to that credo and should). The service didn’t want me although I tried to enlist so I don’t quite get into the C in C mode (My lottery number was 3 in 1968, but both my draft and when trying to enlist physical disqualified me). As such, I find it hard to respect this man as a leader.
As I said earlier, “ In this case, the people, refusing to take their sacred duty as citizens and voters seriously and/or just being too greedy, lazy or stupid and believing the lies elected a person into office who is the personification of everything that is abhorrent to true Americans” The information was out there. The MSM, PACs or whatever openly lied or hid those facts. The MSM in particular did not do its job! And I’m not talking about (nor never have) the birther issue. For whatever reason, the powers that be refused to vet this guy properly. However, in turn the electorate as I have said until I’m blue in the face did not take their jobs as citizens seriously enough and have not for years to actually elect a person who was suitable for the job. False promises, lies and entitlement mentality took the place of an educated electorate. And that is also fact. Why is it the folks on the left promote class warfare and entitlement mentality as well as mandate school curriculum that do not teach our basic ideals? Even when my kids were in school we saw (especially at USF with my 2 oldest girls) the open leftist curriculum being pushed so as such, I speak from experience. Seeing what the schools are teaching now to my grand kids I find the situation far worse. Luckily, we have instilled in our kids what it is to be a true American, something that schools do not teach anymore! They are good at rewriting history though. My point is in my eyes they are purposely creating a mind dead electorate with the sole purpose of keeping their power.
Is the information to make a reasoned decision out there? YES! But it certainly is not reflected in the MSM or the 2 major political parties. That again is fact. You fought for among other things, our right to vote. Yet there are so many who actually advocate withholding the information needed to make an informed decision. And when people such as myself and others, ESPECIALLY IN THE LAST 3 YEARS WITH THIS ADMINISTRATION, SPEAK OUT, we become enemies of the state as I noted before. This President has openly advocated “telling on your neighbor” or “reporting Anti-Obama/Democrat speech or writing. This President has splintered this country, racially and philosophically. His vision of America is one that as we can see in Europe and every failed Socialist country is completely against our way of life. His embrace of the Radical Muslim agenda (Bin-Laden aside) is one that is leading us into a Third World War. And let’s not forget how he throws our allies under the bus.
This is how I feel. I have come to the conclusion I have about this guy because I know how to read and look at everything I can get my hands on. I then make an informed decision based on my beliefs and knowledge of any subject or candidate. Am I perfect? No! Can I be wrong and change my mind? Yes! Have I seen anything yet to change my mind as to what I feel is a cancer that has permeated not only the White House but government in general? No!
You and so many others fought for my right to state my opinion and I appreciate that deeply. But as I said earlier, I have no tolerance for elitist tin horn wanna be dictators, especially those of a hard left Marxist/Socialist such as I feel this President is. We were a country of doers, yet now we have a President that in effect bad mouths success.
Is this really what you and so many others fought for? I sincerely hope not. I hold service men and women in high esteem as I have said before on this site. My father and two step-fathers gave of themselves far more than I can maybe ever hope to understand. I truly believe they are rolling in their graves right now seeing what is transpiring in this nation.
Sorry to be long winded her, but I really want everyone to understand where I’m coming from on this. And please note once again. Yes, I call Obama a traitor to this country, but I do not entirely blame him. I blame as I’ve said more than once a “mind dead electorate” that has either forgotten or in many cases has not been taught the basic principles this country was founded on. That is my belief.
I leave you with a quote I lifted off the Political Pistachio site: look at what comes out of the mouths of our so called leaders then tell me with an straight face that this man in his policies is not a traitor to our country’s ideals.
“Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”
