We Were Warned
canadafreepress.com ^ | 6/20/2014 | Greg Halvorson

Posted on 06/21/2014 6:18:33 AM PDT by rktman

In 2008, we were warned…. Barack Obama, late of a Black Liberation church, protege of Communist Frank Marshall Davis, buyer of real estate from a convicted felon, and community organizer from a political machine as corrupt and ruthless as any in the country, wasn’t going to be Madison’s alter ego. Beyond the gate of political correctness and white guilt, we expected a rough, if not fatal, four years—but no one – and I mean, NO ONE – called this. That it would be this bad, this unmoored, and that, despite a train of scandals, four would become EIGHT abject years, wasn’t possible.

NO WAY.

I knew it was gonna be bad from the gitgo. I really did believe he wouldn't get a second go 'round. That's why the flag came down on 11/6/12 and only flies on certain occassions. I guess some folks just don't, and never will, get it.

I also took down my American flag the minute the election was called for Obama, and it never flew again.

Do you put any of the blame on the GOP for putting up a Mormon? The Mormons aren't even Christians since they believe that Jesus and LUCIFER were brothers. How abysmally wrong is THAT?

I never had a doubt how bad it would be.

I also never had a doubt if Hillary was elected it would be worse.

Had Hillary been elected you wouldn’t be reading this.

All the clues were there for everyone to see. Some just are really clueless. Not you, the millions that voted for what? Handouts, color, a wing and a prayer, his wife, a dream, global warming, skyrocketing energy prices, bank bailouts, IRS fail, what?

As much as I despise Obama and the filth that drive his regime, they’re only the symptom of a greater problem — an elecorate horrendously dumbed down and weakened by ignorance, and the core group of anti-American liberals who leverage that ignorance into power for themselves.

The people who were responsible ultimately for the 2nd go round are the people allegedly on our side who stayed home, and didn’t vote for Romney, who did vote for McCain in 2008. Switching of the electoral votes in Ohio, Florida, Colorado, Wisconsin, and Virginia would have made a difference. They have to look at themselves in a mirror, and brag about how either Romney was too liberal or that they kept a Mormon out of the White House. Must make them feel good. For all the complaints about Romney, the foreign policy would have certainly been much better, and the domestic would also have been improved (IRS scandal, Fast/Furious answers, etc). The people who didn’t turn out. They are to blame. BTW most Mormons are good folks. I exclude Harry ‘Cockroach’ Reid.

Obama crams more debasing scandal and controversy into a single fortnight than Carter-Dutch-Bush-Bill-Bush did in 800, so it’s not merely impressive but distinctly Oppressive.  Much has been said (for more information, google: “How to drink from a firehose”), so I won’t tarry, save to point out that race has done for Obama what it didn’t for Tricky Dick, and that Obama is a travesty on so many levels, his library should feature Satan. 

“Hello, welcome to the Barack Obama Presidential Library.”
“There are rats in the courtyard.”
“Those aren’t rats, they’re poodles.”
“They are?”
“I wouldn’t lie.”
“You’re wearing a devil costume.”
“Costume?” 
“Ha-ha…”
“Something funny?”
“HOLY SH*T!!”

Feasible.  Satan’s modus operandi dispirits, deceives, and discourages human beings much like an onslaught of scandal, cover-ups, and leaders golfing on the taxpayer dime as strategic locales spiral into anarchy dispirits, deceives, and discourages human beings….

Liberals are so ideologically stuck on stupid, but I think the worst is that black matter of so called moderates, lofo and liberal RINO voters so called Independents who still view him as their president, without a fracking clue.

My Mrs. decreed that anytime his mug appeared on our television screen, the channel would be changed or the set would be turned off. You wouldn’t believe how much her simple decree has lowered the level of tension and stress in our household.

Since Obama has gone unchecked for the last 5 years and has increasingly seized power well beyond the Constitution, what would stop or even deter him from simply declaring himself dictator? I fear that Obama will follow the lead of history’s worse despots and use some trumped up crisis to end all civil liberties.

Good observations. I made the statement early on that Romney was nothing more and nothing less than a placeholder for the Bush dynasty.

The Bush administration made some awful decisions but it was lightyears preferable to BO.

You are also right about Mormon rank and file, as opposed to coackroaches like Reid. There isn't a more conservative voting demographic in the country. The best run states in the country (Wyoming, Utah, Idaho) all have high concentrations of Mormon voters.

Rush said it best: "I hope this president fails."

I told all that I knew this was a correct statement. Because if bammy succeeds then the America I've known might not exist any longer....and boy are we heading down that road.

The radical left rallied behind Obama because they knew his skin color made him invincible.

They will do the same with Hillary ...and she will also be afforded a position above the law and beyond the constitution.

Then you have guilty white liberals that vote based on race... to prove they are not racist.

That declaration, if it occurs, would explain the necessity for the unprecedented build-up of Obama’s private army (the heavy arming of federal and local agencies).

LOL! One of my daughters asked me the other day if I was okay after she'd heard a retching sound coming from the den. Before I could answer, my other daughter said - "It's okay. She must've just seen Obama"

She was right.

I hoped it wouldn't be as bad as I suspected after the election, then from about the second month of 2009, I knew this was something we had never seen before in this country. It kept getting worse, sometimes daily. It's so far beyond what I feared it could become, it's just staggering.

I love it when people here prattle on about how they are never going to vote for "the lesser of two weevils" (a little humor there) again. This administration (and now the political party) has never been about the lesser of two evils, that concept is so freaking idiotic and misplaced, and waaaay too often waxed about ignorantly on this forum), it's about the ascension of an evil greater than anything we've seen before. These people are the epitome and face of evil to an entire generation. They are destroyers, polain and simple.

In a way, I’m glad he got elected, and then re-elected. His failures more than anything the conservative Right could ever say, demonstrate the bankruptcy of “liberal” ideology.

And there needs to be a meme out there that the Right is looking forward to exercising all the “powers” Soetoro has discovered in the Executive Office.

The main thing that needs to come out of this is that the electorate *has* to be educated about what Soetoro’s election has cost the USA. That there are still people out there who genuinely think he’s doing a good job, and the scandals are all smears and attacks with no substance, is indicative of the rot and utter lack of awareness endemic in society.

This kind of person can never again be allowed to get themselves elected.

Never again. No matter what.

Halvorson wasn't reading the many early Obama threads on FR in 2008.

Many of us saw through the media glamour and were asking real questions like:

And, for the relatively unknown two-year Senator to challenge Ms Inevitable? Many of us could smell something fishy.

Sorry to burst your bubble Mr. Halvorson, but we were not all enamoured by the glow known as Obama.

We thought we won the Cold War, and technically we did, but we have lost/are losing the ideological war.
And it may be too late.

Obama is not the cause but the symptom, which can and will be repeated.

The cause is communism.
