We've Figured Him Out (Ben Stein nails Obama!)
American Spectator ^ | 7/27/2009 | Ben Stein

Posted on 07/27/2009 6:42:33 AM PDT by milwguy

Why is President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get his socialized medicine bill passed?

Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths:

The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.

They ignored his anti-white writings in his books. They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.

They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student. They ignored his ultra-left record as a "community organizer," Illinois state legislator, and Senator.

The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar.

Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth. Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist, not a fan of this country, way, way too cozy with the terrorist leaders in the Middle East, way beyond naïveté, all the way into active destruction of our interests and our allies and our future.

The tide is turning on Obamamania. I feel it, and the Gates/Crowley incident may be the final straw that breaks the camel's back.

Watching Axelrod and Gibbs on tv this weekend, I detected it in their answers. They fumbled all over themselves to try to explain their boss's inexcusable, race baiting comments.

And Ben Stein believed that Obama would “save” the auto industry without nationalizing it.

Politics is being discussed everywhere and the people are in a rage. Zero and the thugs in his Administration and in Congress are beginning to be despised. The MSM will be going down with them as the American people realize they’re accomplices in the destruction of our county. As the truth comes to light and reality sets in, the rage won’t be pretty.

I was at a party this past weekend. Everyone agreed that they would not be voting for anyone with incumbent after their name. Congress thinks they’re in power for life; they’re very very wrong.

Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and will stop him if he delays at all in taking away our freedoms...There is his urgency and our opportunity. Once freedom is lost, America is lost. Wake up, beloved America.

Yes! Someone on another thread said that a wounded Marxist is a dangerous Marxist; that is, maybe he realizes that he let the mask slip and he's not going get his way by pretending to be the all-compassionate, all-knowing One, and now he's going to move quickly to achieve it in some other way.

What Obama wants is total power. I even think he might eventually clash with some of the hard-line leftists behind him, such as the Emmanuels and Axelrod, because Obama sees this much more in terms of his own personal power than they do. They want to get their Marxist agenda through, but he wants to be King of the Universe.

If his leftist buddies start to bail on him because they realize that his behavior is counterproductive in their quest to impose their agenda, we may see some major upheavals in this country as Obama tries to summon his true source of power, the mob.

Gibbs is icing on the cake of an embarrassing administration. I have no idea what Obama saw in this moron when giving him the press secretary position. Then again, I have no idea what Americans saw in Obama when they gave him the Presidency.

Voting no longer matters, ACORN made sure of that.

(vote early, vote often, using multiple names) THAT'S how you win elections!

The “rush” to nationalize Health care is about the Kennedys.

They endorsed him on over Hillary early on.

So Obama’s gotta git-R-done before Ted’s demise - as sort of a tribute or payback to them for their support.

But it’s not gonna to happen. Thank goodness.

While ignorance can be touted as one reason why 52% of the electorate voted for Barry, another has to be seething Bush hate. Bush was reviled and every bad thing was Bush’s fault this view was carefully cultivated by a Bush hating media. For example, despite the current economic mess, my mother-in-law insists that things were far worse under Bush and that good times are right around the corner with Obama.

Can anyone tell me if it was Gibbs or 0bama that

related the story that the cruel white cop handcuffed the poor old professor behind his back,
but the merciful black cop listened to his pleas and changed the cuffs to the front.

Now, Americans are waking up to the truth that ObamaCare basically means that every time you are sick or injured, you will have a clerk from the Department of Motor Vehicles telling your doctor what he can and cannot do.

This is the EXACT message we need to drive home.

Yes, and we need to remind every democrat in the House, especially the Blue Dogs, that Pelosi comes from an ultra-liberal district and she will sink their chances of re-election while she skates. Pelosi’s ability to bully democrat members of congress into voting for her agenda has to be diminished.

I have a theory on Presidential elections since the TV age...except for 1972, the better-looking man has won the Presidency. Sunny Eisenhower against the dour Stevenson, young Kennedy against 5-o'clock-shadow Nixon, Johnson/Goldwater and Nixon/Humphrey a wash, idealist Carter against RINO Ford, Reagan simply looking better than anybody, Dems nominating the only ugly passionless Greek in America against GHW Bush, handsome babyboomer Clinton against old fogeys Bush and Dole, George W. Bush against Algore and Lurch Kerry, and so on...

The Dem party handlers realized that you couldn't win a Presidential election with an ugly candidate. So, they pluck an obscure community organizer out of Chicago, put him on a script ("HOPEYCHANGEY!!!"), and he outprettied John McCain.

What B. Hussein is doing now (Socialized Medicine, surrender of American sovereignty, the elimination of take-home pay, etc.) is no different than what Clinton, algore, or Lurch would've done if they had the chance. Now the Dems have got a pretty boy to push their message...and a half-Black man to boot for guilty white liberals.

“...Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist...”

I don't know about "super" likable, but he has been charming. The way all narcissists are charming. That is their ultimate and usually best talent and profession and they work on it harder than anything else. They realize that charm is the way they manipulate people. Once you are no longer in adoration of them, or you cause them some problem, you are out of their "fog." You are not needed. Or, in the case of Obama...thrown under the bus.

When the whole of the country no longer adores Obama he will not be able to handle it. Narcissists first blame everyone else, then they run and hide. A narcissist cannot endure being exposed or unliked. Perhaps Obama will suffer a mental breakdown or, at the least, a meltdown.

I have said it a thousand times and I wish the powers that be would provide some way that our leaders must undergo a stringent personality test. The way that business tests people for administrative or management jobs. The test reveals a person's proclivity for telling the truth, being able to work with others as a team player, and being able to withstand criticism, among other skills for leadership.

Obama would have failed any such test. His emotional makeup is weak and immature as though he stopped developing emotionally when he was a child. Sadly, many other politicians now in office would not have passed such a test.

But it is time we have stable, smart, humble, and honorable people in Congress who remember they work for us and not vice-versa! A personality test would weed out the most unworthy and un-trustworthy...such as Obama whose narcissistic personality would have been revealed and rendered him ineligible for leadership or an administrative position in any environment.

Whereas I agree with you that much of what Obama is pushing is straight from the democrat playbook, I do believe that he is Machiavellian well beyond the normal socialistic demeanor of the democrats. He is a dangerous ideologue, and his past is so obscure that one cannot help wondering how long he has had an agenda, and who has been backing him.

Yeah, but they knew Sarah Palin said "I can see Russia from my house" - which she never said. That was Tina Fey on SNL.

Democrats are STUPID and should not ever be allowed to vote again.
