2016: Obama's America or Romney's
American Thinker ^ | 08/29/2012 | Christopher Chantrill

There were two big takeaways for me on 2016: Obama's America. One was the united front that Barry and his mom formed against stepfather Lolo Soetero's capitalist career working for an evil oil company in Indonesia.

The other was Dinesh D'Souza's interview with one of Barack Senior's old anti-colonialist buddies back in Kenya. The old guy is still spouting the anti-colonial bunkum about the Brits looting the colonies and its modern refrain, that the U.S. is in the Middle East to grab the oil. Oh, and the Arabs are victims of the Israelis.

Dinesh's movie reminds us that our 2012 presidential candidates are unapologetic representatives of two great 19th-century belief systems. Barack Obama believes in the Exploitation narrative, invented by Marx and extended by Lenin. To Obama and his lefty mom, oil companies might as well be 19th-century textile sweatshops, and the highest calling in the world is to advocate for the poor against the capitalist exploiters.

Mitt Romney is a horse of a different color. He belongs to a church founded in America's Second Great Awakening in the early 19th century. He practices the modern capitalism of the 21st century. You take money from where it is to where it is wanted, helping start new companies or trying to save old ones. You hire the best people and train them up, and give them all the responsibility they can handle. When you see a problem, he writes, you "run toward it or it will only get worse." No "leading from behind" for Mitt.

The Exploitation narrative is obviously attractive to people looking for a political career. It says that some helpless group -- the workers, for example -- are suffering from injustice or oppression. They are not getting their just deserts.

Bottom Line from the movie. Barack Obama hates White People.

The libs are always blaming others....In Africa, those people blame their colonial rulers after 50 years, the Arabs are blaming Isreal for their depressed state (psst, Arabs... try a real Democracy where ALL can be free...your standard of living WILL RISE!!)
