Stop It? We Are Just Getting Started…

What’s up with the Bamster? Is he a secret Muslim taking orders from the Kremlin?

I’m going to try to do this without going full Beck, so bear with me…

One of our co-bloggers, melfamy, suggests:

Pay attention, people. Obama is not a good President. He is also not a Muslim, a communist, a socialist, a trotskyite, a maoist, or an anti-Semite.  Obama does not do any off the following:

1)Apologize for America

2)Hate America

3)Hate his white half

4)Love his black half more

5)Long to see Sharia law  instituted in the US

He has:

1) violated the Constitution(but no worse than any other President. Still, it is time to crack down.)

2) given us a health care bill that will, ironically, set the Progressive movement back 20 years or more.

3) spent our money AND future earnings, on jobs that evaporated,  and saving banker ass.

4) has  been “knowingly receiving and abiding by Communist orders, and consciously serving the Communist conspiracy, for all his adult life.”

Taking these one at a time:

Obama is not a good President.

Agreed. Perhaps the most duplicitous and politically partisan president since Woodrow Wilson or FDR, Obama displays every characteristic that makes for a poor president. He is indecisive and to be poll driven, the most tone deaf president in my lifetime (and I remember Carter). By every objective measure – unemployment, GDP (economic recovery), balance of payments, national debt, growth of poverty and the increase in government assistance to individuals, growth of government employment vs. the private sector (in number and compensation), financial corruption and cronyism, and federal budget deficit (if we only had a budget), Obama is the worst president in modern history.

He is also not a Muslim, a communist, a socialist, a trotskyite, a maoist, or an anti-Semite.  

A person doesn’t have to declare to be a member of any of these groups to behave like one. He is protective of Islam, having grown up in majority Muslim societies and educated in Islamic influenced schools. He has not declared that he is a Muslim but he clearly has sympathies with Islam and has actually never visited Israel (perhaps giving rise and credence to the assertion that he is Muslim and an anti-Semite). As shown in the recent dust –up over the forced issuance of contraceptives by Catholic supported/run organizations, he has shown an animosity toward Catholics that he has never shown toward Islam.

His father was a Kenyan communist, his mother a new age “progressive”, he was tutored at the feet of a black nationalist/socialist – Frank Marshall Davis and he reportedly sought out and socialized with communists in college and later with radicals Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers. It is also inarguable that his policies are collectivist and redistributionist and he has intervened in the private sector using government funds to take ownership in the manner of production of the financial and automotive industries – these are Marxist actions and whether declared as such, have the same effect.

Obama may not be a declared communist, socialist, Trotskyite or Maoist but he exhibits strong tendencies to each.

He has never apologized for America.

This is a clever parsing of words. We first have to understand how a politician apologizes. A politician never actually says the words, “I’m sorry”. He discusses how he has failed, misspoke, was taken out of context, etc. The point being that there are many ways to apologize without using the actual words. In point of fact and with the same effect as a formal apology, Obama has expressed an apologetic sentiment without actually saying the words. In April of 2009, a scant three months after inauguration, Karl Rove detailed three separate “apologies” in the Wall Street Journal:

President Barack Obama has finished the second leg of his international confession tour. In less than 100 days, he has apologized on three continents for what he views as the sins of America and his predecessors.

Mr. Obama told the French (the French!) that America “has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” toward Europe. In Prague, he said America has “a moral responsibility to act” on arms control because only the U.S. had “used a nuclear weapon.” In London, he said that decisions about the world financial system were no longer made by “just Roosevelt and Churchill sitting in a room with a brandy” — as if that were a bad thing. And in Latin America, he said the U.S. had not “pursued and sustained engagement with our neighbors” because we “failed to see that our own progress is tied directly to progress throughout the Americas.”

By confessing our nation’s sins, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that Mr. Obama has “changed the image of America around the world” and made the U.S. “safer and stronger.” As evidence, Mr. Gibbs pointed to the absence of protesters during the Summit of the Americas this past weekend.

He hates America.

Obama doesn’t hate America – he just hates any America that hasn’t been “remade” by his policies. His actions to reduce the influence America had in the world and to put us in a position to “lead from behind” cause me to believe that he believes that America is dangerous and cannot be trusted to do the right thing when faced with a challenge. That isn’t the same as “hate” but it does approach loathing. He certainly has a different vision of what America is and should be that is significantly different than most Americans (my opinion).

He hates his white half or loves his black half more.

Yeah, I don’t know about this one. I cannot say for certain that he dislikes anything about his white heritage because that heritage is one that is in alignment with his worldview – “progressive”. What I can say is that he certainly downplays the Caucasian aspects to identify as a black man. He is never referred to as “mixed race”, always as African-American or black. Why do you suppose that is?

I think it is because it is politically advantageous to him – and he uses it to full effect. I do believe that he exhibits racist tendencies as he manages his political coalition – for example, forming the support organization, African Americans for Obama.  Actions like this by him are casually overlooked by the media – can you even imagine the magnitude of the firestorm that a group called White Guys for Romney or Honky Crackers for Ron Paul would generate? Hating his white half is perhaps too harsh but there is either 1) a resentment of that half of his mixed DNA or 2) a cynical repression of it for a political purpose.

He longs to see Sharia law instituted in the US.

This seems nonsensical – what he has not done is spoken against the encroachment of Sharia in the US. He has said nothing about the use of it in a Florida court case…perhaps it isn’t important to him but sometimes not speaking against something has the same effect as agreeing with it while maintaining plausible deniability – silence is acquiescence.

As for the rest:

He has violated the Constitution, not “no worse than any other president” but worse than any other president since Wilson and FDR, who saw the Constitution as nothing but an impediment to their “progressive” visions of America.

Part and parcel of that disregard for the Constitution is the Affordable Health Care Act of 2010. I see no difference between the first assertion and this one, they are the same – as far as setting “progressivism” back, it won’t because even if the law is deemed unconstitutional, there are already vestiges that will never be completely repealed and removed from the government.

He did spend our kids and grandkids into the poor house but it wasn’t for nothing – the money is coming back to his campaign from the very people who receive the bailouts and the loan guarantees. The unions now own substantial chunks of the automotive companies and they will return the love in cash and donated time in his campaign.

But none of this really matters. Obama is a bad president, perhaps the worst in the history of America.

That says it all.

  1. Obama spent practically zero time with his real Father, and Romney’s Dad was a Progressive, so let’s take that one off the table, eh? And Obama lived with Muslims, went to school with Muslims, his step-father was a Muslim. Utah, has it ever occurred to you that the reason Obama is (gasp!) tolerant of Muslims is because he knows they don’t hate us? Don’t you think that living with a people is a better way to get to know them than reading books? And just how many Osama bin Ladens, Taliban leaders, and al qaeda’s #3 guys does Obama have to kill before you start to think that maybe he isn’t a freaking Muslim mole?

    I don’t know this supposed mentor of Obama, and the whole Bill-Ayers-commies-in-the-west-wing fantasy could only be believed by someone so full of hate that they have thrown logic and reason out the window. So someone makes a lame joke about Mao being their favorite political philosopher, and another’s Father was a commie, and yet another West Wing operative dared to learn Russian? During the Cold war? Weaving unrelated factoids together like this is fun, but ultimately useless, and only the reality-challenged would base a conclusion on such flimsy evidence.

    Obama admitted to the world that he was the President of a country that has not always lived up to its ideals, nothing that hasn’t been said by you, Black, myself, nor anyone else reading this. A man admits his mistakes, an immature man acts tough and makes lame excuses. The same goes for a country. The trouble is, Obama is still meddling, still fighting a stupid war and rattling sabers

    The UAW’s retiree medical benefits trust owns 10.5 % of GM’s shares outright. Maybe they own other shares through blind trusts and such. I don’t know. But the company is doing fine. You can argue the methods, but the results speak for themselves, this is a success for Obama. Calm down, man, he was lucky! Still, a win is a win, and it is still American-owned.

    The whole point I am trying to make, and failing, is that Obama has done enough; he does not deserve a second term, but he will get his second term, because the moderates are going to be turned off by the obvious half-truths and faulty logic you and the rest of the right-wing rumor-mongers spew, with little or no regard for perspective or veracity.

    I thought better of you guys.

  2. Who or what Romney’s father was has absolutely no bearing on what Obama has done or who he is. How does Romney’s father have anything to do with Obama? What does that mean? I’ll tell you – nothing. That is called equivocation, my friend – trying to make something OK by stating a similar fact as if it has relevance here – it doesn’t – unless Obama was adopted by George Romney (I don’t think he was).

    I stated facts about Obama and by your own admission you are making statements that you have absolutely no knowledge of or basis to make. You even admit that you “don’t know this supposed mentor of Obama” – so who is the one talking out his ass here, Greg? I’m supposed top back down because you dismiss it? Not going to happen.

    If you will actually take off your rose colored “progressive” glasses long enough, you will see that I never stated that he is a Muslim. What I specifically said was that he has made statements favorable to Islam that he has not made about others and treated Islam different from Christian religions. I stated that he is sympathetic to Islam where he isn’t toward Catholicism. That is a fact. If it helps you, I don’t believe the man even believes in God or subscribes to a religion – I think there is more evidence that he is an atheist than anything else.

    In answer to your question, he has to kill enough to lose his Nobel Peace Prize.

    The whole “Bill-Ayers-commies-in-the-west-wing fantasy” isn’t a fantasy at all. I based my assessment on actual actions and facts; not jokes or someone buying a copy of Rosetta Stone to learn Russian. You seem to be adamant that this is all a fantasy but you are the one light on proof, my friend. Your case boils down to, “are you going to believe what Obama does or your lying eyes?”

    Obama has appointed avowed socialists to his cadre of czars. Carol M. Browner, Obama’s pick as global warming czar, was listed as one of 14 leaders of a socialist group’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society, which calls for “global governance” and says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change. Remember Van Jones? Yep – avowed communist. So yes, it is factual to state that Obama has surrounded himself with socialists and communists – pretty much his entire life – it is an undisputed fact that he launched his political career in the “salon” of Bernadine Dorhn and Bill Ayers in Chicago, and it is also an undisputed fact that these two are Marxists and unrepentant terrorists.

    I would be happy to hear you explain how his actions are not more socialist than free market…but you won’t because you can’t.

    I could go on and on but I’ll just repost something that I wrote back in April titled “I’ve Been Wrong About Obama” for your benefit and education.

    Obama admitted to the world that he was the President of a country that has not always lived up to its ideals, nothing that hasn’t been said by you, Black, myself, nor anyone else reading this. A man admits his mistakes; an immature man acts tough and makes lame excuses. The same goes for a country. The trouble is, Obama is still meddling, still fighting a stupid war and rattling sabers.

    Perhaps – but with one big difference. Neither Black3 nor I are the President of the United States. Our position is that we haven’t lived up to our country’s ideals due to people like Obama.

    GM is doing fine? Not quite. USA Today reported in December that:

    General Motors was saved by the Obama administration with a $50 billion bailout. But now it could turn into a bigger political headache than ever for President Obama, Bloomberg News reports in an analysis.

    GM shares have fallen to less than half the price that the government needs to break even. They closed Friday at $20.50 a share. Taxpayers need at least $53 a share to recover their investment. While GM has revived its sales in the U.S. with a raft of new models, it faces troubles like all automakers in the financial turmoil of Europe.
    The GM investment issue could put Obama in a bind. He either gets criticized for having the government still with a stake in GM, or he is criticized for selling the government’s stake at a loss. When Republicans nominate a candidate in August, the government will probably either still own a substantial portion of GM or will have sold the stock at a loss that could be more than $10 billion.

    The UAW actually owns 17.5% of GM and 55% of Chrysler.

    The whole point I am trying to make, and failing, is that Obama has done enough; he does not deserve a second term, but he will get his second term, because the moderates are going to be turned off by the obvious half-truths and faulty logic you and the rest of the right-wing rumor-mongers spew, with little or no regard for perspective or veracity.

    There is not a single thing that I have printed that is a lie or even a half truth. There are no rumors in what I have written. I have drawn conclusions from the evidence at hand, it is possible that I have drawn the wrong ones. I don’t think I have – but that isn’t prevarication or dishonesty. Ignoring the evidence of the man’s own actions and words is. There is far less evidence for your position than there is mine.

    I thought better of you.

  3. Obama is gay and he was born in Kenya.

    Now, in a court of law I may have solid evidence to support my statements, or I may just have a lot of circumstantial evidence to support my statements.

    With this article, I think you have just unintentionally made G.’s case for him. Of course, that’s just my opinion.

    You know what’s kinda funny? Sorry, M., but sometimes you just tickle me. Here:
    “I don’t think I have – but that isn’t prevarication or dishonesty.”
    “Dishonest, diversionary and pompous…”

    Of course we all know you’re not dishonest…………..or do we? (insert evil laughter) 🙂

    • I must have missed the part where I posted ANYTHING that isn’t true. My conclusions are my conclusions but these aren’t my facts. The claim that we can’t use facts to deduce an answer and that the necessary standard of proof is Obama publicly stating, “I am a Marxist Muslim” with his right hand on the Koran is fallacious.

      Convictions are achieved in courts of law every day with less circumstantial evidence than we have here.

      • Gah!! I was just referring to how you coin the Rio Norte LIne……

        I agree with you about convictions. I would also add that they are achieved in a greater majority of cases if a defendant doesn’t have a kick-ass defense lawyer.

        So there you have it. No one is accusing you of fellating.

  4. You are so right in all aspects of this post, Utah. And naturally, Greg tries to skew your statements or simply come up with something totally off the wall. Greg acts like we should all suck up to him because he admits that OWEbozo doesn’t deserve a second term. In fact nearly everything he has done in his first term should be either repealed or declared against the Constitution.
