Can Obama survive? [Hate-filled Americans who will never accept a black man as president](Unreal)
The Globe and Mail ^ | August 28, 2009 | Gerald Caplan, Special to The Globe and Mail

Posted on 08/28/2009 7:21:32 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The campaign against health-care reform fuels a huge number of hate-filled Americans who will never accept a black man as president.

Barack Obama seemed remarkably upbeat the other day as he left for his first formal vacation as president. It's true that this is one of the coolest cats the world has ever seen, always apparently comfortable in his own skin, unflappable, dignified, whatever the winds swirling around him.

But that doesn't mean he's always right, and there are plenty of reasons to fear that he's very wrong if he doesn't think he's in big, deep trouble.

It's hard when discussing American politics not to want to break into constant superlatives, as in “the craziest” this or “the most extreme” that. I saw a clip the other day of conservative bloviator Charles Krauthammer asserting as a matter of indisputable fact that if Obama lost the health-care battle his administration was over. Full stop. Over. May as well turn the keys of the White House over to Sarah Palin. Yet it's barely half a year since his inauguration and 3½ to go. This is as preposterous a comment as is conceivable – you see, superlatives are already inescapable – yet his fellow pundits on the panel all mindlessly agreed.

What is true is that the U.S. President and the presidency are in great jeopardy, but not from the health-care battle as such. There are an abundance of dire warning signs.(continued)

ObaMao is, at most, 3/8th black and perhaps as little as 1/8th. His days of hiding behind that label are numbered.

Obama: Fake black man. Fake Messiah. Fake American. How many more fakes can fit into one Zero?

Hate filled Americans??

The facts:

Obama doen’t care about public opinion any more. Few people get that.

He has 44 leftist czars, he owns Homeland security, has his own discrete cadre within the SS,
controls the NSA, Has all major TV in his pocket and 1/2 of Fox doing his beck and call,has initiatives in place to shut down conservative talk radio, has conservatives branded as possible terrorist by Homeland Security with a data base of names,has the GPS coordinates of every citizens home through census data with the census run out of the White House,has taken over the major intel functions of the CIA and is running that from the White House while cowing the CIA with prosecutions, has his historical and birth records sealed and cauterized.

Now we may see Obama rule the country through executive orders with the Congress passing laws to cover them after the fact.

We will have conflict, a civil war of institutional proportions at the federal and state levels of government. Obamaphiles within our government institutions will enforce his coming edicts.Patriots will refuse to act, or run interference that may lead to violence.That is the possible war to come.We see glimpses of it from within the CIA.Some states already have conntingency plans to ask federal agencies to leave their state until they are invited to return,

The result will be a declaration of martial law, if Obamaphile government emplyees have the strength to enforce it. If they do, then we will not have a genuine election for the next 20 years.

Patriots must gird themselves. We are in for a very rocky ride with Hopey Changey.May we with the help of God, save the Republic.

This is like a race speech when you’re nominated for president, stupid.

BTW, he wasn’t raised black and has nothing in common with stateside African-Americans.

I know some very sharp blacks, and (horror of horrors) one is even gay (albeit quite conservative).

I’d vote for any of them over the Obamaloon.

Obama is - quite simply - a simpleton.

He ain’t up to the job.

He’s never had a job.

He’s stupid

Period.

Heh... totally agree with that assessment. Not only that, I find it hard to see how Bozo will be able to successfully get out of the corner he's painted himself into.

He can simply enact Obamacare against the clear will of The People, which will of course result in the destruction of the Democrat party as we know it, and very likely spark a second American Revolution, which will resurrect the true, free American republic.

Or, he can pull the plug on the whole thing, and become a certified lame duck Resident from here until the end of his term, simultaneously becoming the anchor that pulls all Socialists down into the abyss with him.

Can't say that I dislike either one of those alternatives.

There again the picture of the black guy with the AR 15 and pictured with alot of light on him from behind so you can't see he is black. Is he a racist?

The author sure as hell is.

It's hard when discussing American politics not to want to break into constant superlatives, as in “the craziest” this or “the most extreme” that.

Yep, liberals of the American ilk always invoke mindless superlatives such as this --- "WORST economy EVER!" - "WORST President EVER! (meaning GW Bush) --- "GREATEST President EVER!" (meaning Bill Clinton) --- "SMARTEST woman in the world, EVER!" (we all know that is Hillary) --- blah blah blah ... /shrug

I saw a clip the other day of conservative bloviator Charles Krauthammer asserting as a matter of indisputable fact that if Obama lost the health-care battle his administration was over. Full stop. Over. May as well turn the keys of the White House over to Sarah Palin.

Sounds like a smart plan :)

Yet it's barely half a year since his inauguration and 3½ to go. This is as preposterous a comment as is conceivable – you see, superlatives are already inescapable –

Hay, sometimes running off the lemmings cliff is the fastest way down - until ya hit the earth below, HARD, that is ....

I'm shocked that it only took 6 months, thought it might take at least 8 or 9 months ..... /laughs

"...conservative bloviator Charles Krauthammer..."

Well, that about defines the author. Now, I often disagree with Charles Krauthammer, but "bloviator" is not in the dictionary of adjectives that can be applied to him.

He is a well spoken and thoughtful guy, even when I DO disagree with him.

Never accept a wanna be... period, much less such an obvious enemy of this country.

Communists are clueless, black communists are a million times more clueless. What a programmed puppet he is (and a poor one at that). No clue of American history or traditions, never took responsibility for the jobs he DID have but for other peoples work. When will blacks wake up?

Every brother I know from the southside golfs, stays in million dollar vacation homes, ditchs State of the Black Union/black press/MLKs birthday *which McCain at least had the nads to go to the hotel and get booed, go to a black church for 20 years and not only lie about the pastor... throws him under the bus, no mention on the national day of prayer but a five minute primer on Ramadan, wimps out in every country he goes to and has no manhood but goes on ‘who he knows or who he can meet’. Meanwhile the blacks that had jobs lost them, can’t find another one, got to lay off employees, losing their business or can’t get a loan to start one, the 401 K and retirement is slashed, losing their houses, going on welfare cause due to lack of jobs and scream ‘my man Barack’, ‘give him time’, ‘they’re racist’... just don’t ask where the jobs are, why the money didn’t flow for foreclosures or businesses, why he’s swimming in bucks and living lush as a ‘public servant’, just give me 200 bucks on my social security or welfare to hold me over and he’s cool... cause he’s ‘representin’’

Dumbasses.

He can take no criticism or correction... like an uptight female teenager or a terrible two toddler. He’s a spoiled, malignant narcissist who wouldn’t give a hoot if he lost all around him... as long as he could ‘use’ it and it was all about him. Someone who benefits mightily from everything in this country and climbed, slashed, backstabbed ‘real’ civil rights leaders of his party in Chicago (and some fellow socialists... but they do that), to get a post he admitted he wasn’t qualified for... just to destroy same country (But hey, Stalin wasn’t a Russian, hence he didn’t care about the people... ditto for other dysfunctional dictators).

This is a twisted brother, he is defective.

I expected more from the Soviets... I guess it was enough after the 40 year dumb down. Yuri Bezmenov, McCarthy and others were right.

Gerald Kaplan is a sanctimonious chickensh*t Canadian socialist - the absolutely worst kind of mush-headed numbnutted duckspeaker one is ever likely to read.

Such a combination of saccharine and excrement is not nearly as rare as one might wish, unfortunately.

Thankfully, it comes off with water alone.
