I just figured out who Barack Obama is (vanity but scary)
vanity | 11/12/2008 | Paul Strater

Posted on 11/14/2008 5:06:59 PM PST by VideoPaul

I was typing a message just moments ago in a political discussion group I belong to. I was responding to how Mr. Obama's "all 57 states" is excused by liberals as being "purely a casual slip of the tongue" but yet Dan Quayle was portrayed as dumber than a box of hammers for his "casual slips of the tongue". I suggested that perhaps Obama is just so much more intelligent than the rest of us mere mortals and thinks on such a different plane that we as unenlightened conservatives can't possibly comprehend his brilliance.

Then something hit me like a sack of concrete. I know who man really is. Please read the following excerpt and tell me if you think this describes the Messiah...

"The Controller, one of the ten men who run the World State, represents a combination of past and present, convention and rebellion. A man of two worlds, [he] is familiar with the history that others are forbidden to know, and so his thinking ranges both inside and outside the present social order. The maker of the rules, as he says, can break them as well, if he wishes.

Only [his] extraordinary power keeps him safe from whispers of his dangerous knowledge and collection of unorthodox books. He is untouchable but not unreachable. With [person] and [person], [he] discusses the unspoken assumptions of the society they find so constricting, even confessing his own youthful experiments in challenging authority. [He] knows the nature of the malcontent—he once was one—but he is committed to keeping the society stable. He uses his power for others’ happiness, he explains, not his own.

During his lectures, [he] expresses his unique views on the themes of freedom, happiness, civilization, and heroism."

What was that from? That's the Cliff's Notes Online character overview of Mustapha Mond from Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World".

Sleep well having read that.

Seriously, folks, isn’t that just a little over the top frightening that the character overview of Mustapha Mond fairly brilliantly decribes Barack Obama?

How true that is -- Until the bitter end. Then they will care. At this point Obamunists see themselves as pie eaters, not pie suppliers.

Obama’s administration could well become the one our founders feared — and thus added the 1st and 2nd Amendments to the Constitution.....

Free Speech and the right to bear arms.

Watch how mightily the Obamacrats work against both.

You only thing Quayle made "casual slips of the tongue" because you have been gulled. When Quayle gave his, supposedly his, famous spelling of "potatoe", he was reading from a card held up by a teacher whose classroom he was visiting.

He will prove to be, in due time, a stupid, inept man unfit for the presidency and easily defeated in a fair election if his opponent is a patriotic, conservative alternative.

As this election cycle was winding down, I felt that Obama’s election was inevitable. I don’t think the hounds of hell could have stopped it. It was ordained.

When you realize his Communist upbringing, the circumstances surrounding his birth, and the absolute secrecy of his past you have to give pause.

Communism really is the evil wind that blows no good and it seems that all totalitarian states have truly evil men in charge. In the Bible in states there will be many Anti Christs and then there will be THE Anti Christ.

'The Pie Eater' 1662-1672, Bartolome Esteban Murillo

Kid on the right says, "You're so funny, my friend, carelessly eating and enjoying the pie that OTHERS have provided you." Dog below thinks, "Where's MY pie?!?"

We need to do something to add the description "Pie Eaters" (when referring to LibTards) into the everyday lexicon. If it were up to me, it'd be, "F-ing Pie Eaters!" ;)

Everyone is acrtually on a gentle slope down into the grave from about 21 years of age on. When you reach 58 (my age) it occurs to you that you are actually dying. Probably not tomorrow (but then a couple of your friends younger than you are dead already) but when so many tomorrows have come and gone .... you know it will all be over quite soon.

SO. EFF them all! I’m going to sit back and watch em all fry in their own juices by their own hands.

Ah the Alpha Plus World Controller—How fitting. He talks about the whole ‘alpha male’ thing he has to touch other men of power in Obama’s example ihe described the first time he met Bush as a Junior Senator. He reached over and patted him on the shoulder in an alpha male dominant way. Bush should have warned us then.

“Free Speech and the right to bear arms.

Watch how mightily the Obamacrats work against both.”

I am starting to think that the whole ‘Obama Civilian Security Force’ is a ruse to do away with the 2nd Amendment in it’s current form, by forming a ‘well-regulated militia’...hence in the liberal/leftist view, negating the need for an ‘individual right to bear arms’.

What happened, as I remember it, was that the previous card was the plural, potatoes. That confused him when he was asked for the singular.

As someone who has done a lot of proofreading, I well know how easy it is to forget the correct spelling when you see something misspelled in print.

I believe there is an alternate spelling “potatoe” which is correct, and that Quayle was not wrong.

Compare his treatment to Biden’s, considering Biden is an absolute idiot.

No one is mentioning Biden, I find his presence almost as frightening as Obama’s.

We will have to fight them in the courts first my FRiend. Every piece of stinkin and unconstitutional legislation they pour out on this country!

That is where we may be able to stop them while ‘out of power’ in DC. It is going to be an uphill battle too, since so many liberal ‘Men In Black’ sit on benches all over this country. But we should really thank Bush tonight for his appointments to the Supremes!

The leftists want to make ‘make laws’ in the courts when thay are out of power... well...LET’S ROLL!! Give them a taste of their own medicine.

We need to identify conservative legal groups that will fight(like NRA, Landmark Legal, Judicial Watch, etc.) and start pouring in the money to their coffers...ASAP.

The "57 states" quote was a Freudian slip.

He obviously had in mind the The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) which is comprised of 57 member states.
He certainly didn't have the United States of America in mind when he opened his mouth.
