Bobby Jindal warns against 'hating' Barack Obama
politico ^ | 6/17/11 | JONATHAN MARTIN

Posted on 06/17/2011 5:05:43 PM PDT by Nachum

NEW ORLEANS — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal diverged from the red meat attacks on President Obama that have characterized the Republican Leadership Conference to caution conservative activists that they ought not demonize the president in the fashion some liberals did President Bush.

Jindal recalled what he said were the "shrill, absurd and negative rhetoric" employed by the left during the eight years Bush was in office.

"We must not mimic their shallow approach," he said to modest applause in a Friday afternoon speech here.

Jindal, who just turned 40, is up for re-election this fall and is widely assumed by the state's political class to have national ambitions.

So even while tut-tutting the more sharp-edged attacks on Obama, he mixed in reassurance that he wasn't sympathizing with the president's policies.

On a scale of 1 to 10, Jindal is about a 6 & 3/4. He’ll win re-election this fall, but a true-blue conservative, he ain’t.

I’ve been knowing the man for fifteen years...

I guess that didn't work out to well for them in 2006-08, did it?

Shut up. You "be nice to the enemy" sickos are a big big part of the problems we face today. It's repugnant.

So we should be tolerant of a totalitarian leftist trying to rule over us and only speak nicey-nice of him?

17 Do not rejoice when your enemies fall into trouble. Don’t be happy when they stumble. 18 For the LORD will be displeased with you and will turn his anger away from them.

~ Proverbs 24:17-18

BY CONTRAST:

21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.
22 In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the LORD will reward you.

~ Proverbs 25:21-22

That can NEVER happen, ever!

I think what Bobby is trying to say is the RINO Leadership is cautioned that they ought not demonize the pres__ent in the fashion some liberals did Bush.

Only RINO's would however Conservatives are above the fray.

I suspect a lot of Freepers would agree with me on this. I don’t hate Biden. I don’t agree with Biden, I don’t respect him, he’s got to be one of the dumbest guys in captivity, but I don’t hate him. I don’t have enough energy to hate Biden. But then again, Biden serves a useful function - to provide comic relief - and doesn’t seem to be overtly causing inordinate amounts of harm. 0bama however ....

They are beyond the idea of "God fearing".

Until Republicans understand they are playing for keeps, they will keep getting their butts handed to them. Jindal had better get with it or it will be bye-bye Bobby, when he looks for support on a national basis.

Everybody hates Obama, huh? Sure. The very SECOND that something bad happens to the piece of filth, we will be REQUIRED to pray for him just like Ted Kennedy, a sub-human piece of filth if ever there was one.

For the most part, people don’t personally hate Obama and they probably never will. Hussein’s personal approval (not job approval) numbers tend to be very high. It’s galling, but for whatever reason, people really want to like this man. Obama’s been turned into a cultural icon and a lot of people are emotionally invested in him.

Jindal’s point is probably that we should attack Obama on the issues where he is actually vulnerable (the economy), and not waste a bunch of time trying to drive down his personal negatives when it seems pretty clear the public will probably continue liking him personally even if we defeat him.

On second thought, let’s do it.

“Have I not hated them, O Lord, who hated Thee? ... I have hated them with a perfect hatred, and they have become enemies to me.” (Psalm 138:21-22)

“Joined in friendship with those who hate the Lord, you truly deserve the wrath of God!” (II Para. 19:2)

“I did not set before my eyes any unjust thing: I hated the workers of iniquities. In the morning I put to death all the wicked of the land: that I might cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of the Lord.” (Psalms 101:3, 8)”

The key is this: we should not hate OUR enemies but we are COMMANDED to hate GODS ENEMIES — and I consider Obama one of those.....

Bobby, Bobby, Bobby! What we’ve got here is failure to communicate.

Some men, you just can’t reach.

So you get what we had here last week — which is the way he wants it.

Well, he gets it.

And I don’t like it anymore than you men.

It’s far more productive to focus our energies on LOVING the right things and putting our energies into making sure the righteous, good, and just people get elected. For example, I’d rather be excited about Sarah Palin than depressed about Obama.

It’s also important to make sure WE are doing everything in our OWN lives to help the situation, rather than waste our time hating on bad people. Yes it’s good to hate what they STAND for —> the hate the sin, love the sinner mentality —> cliche, but powerful.

So yes, rather than think about “what did Obama do today?” We should ask ourselves, “What did I DO today (that is within my power) to help, in some small or big way, to make sure goodness, freedom—all those good things prevail?”

I don’t hate him, I just hate his politics, his lack of intelligence, his lack of experience as a leader, his inability to make a speech without TOTUS, his hate for Whitey, America, and Israel, his fake birth certificates and fake conversion to Christianity, and pretty much every decision he has made as Impostor-In-Chief, and his friends who are just like him. And that’s just the beginning!

Now his VeeP, the Gaffe-O-Matic, I’ll take any day over him for the position of POTUS!

I only encountered him a couple of times. I liked him, and he struck me as very bright, but also as a mild and even timid personality. Great support guy, weak executive. This came to the fore when he submitted to federal obstruction during the oil spill. That event showed his true mettle . . . unfortunately. Indignation is not authority or power.

Hate is a very powerful and self destructive emotion.

Hate eats it’s host, can wound the soul and is very unforgiving.

An enemy that works around the clock doing his very best at destroying my country, stealing my treasure, and the treasure, Freedoms, Liberty and futures of generations yet unborn, is seen my me as a bad thing.

Doing what you can to turn my children and grandchildren into slaves of the state is just not something I want to hug you for doing.

A person in power that deliberately ignores my constitution and put’s my Freedom and Liberty at risk, is a turn off to me and it won’t get me to smile.

I could go on.

You see, I didn’t begin to hate Obama and his damn democrats with the extreme cause that THEY personally inspired.

Now, I sure don’t like hating, but I sure do.

The only good news I have for those I hate, is that I love my freedom and I don’t feel dangerous....
