Does America Deserve Obama?
American Thinker ^ | 11/04/2011 | David Deming

Posted on 11/04/2011 6:27:34 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

President Obama is a socialist and a vapid demagogue who has been educated beyond the level of his intelligence. He is the choice of a puerile and spoiled electorate who want to be taken care of and obtain handouts from a parental figurehead.

I can't believe the West won the Cold War. The Cold War was a competition of economic ideologies. In the 1960s, we used to have sincere debates about which economic system was better -- a socialist, centrally-planned economy, or a capitalist, free-market economy. The debate is over. By 1990, even the Russians and Chinese were forced to implicitly admit the superiority of market economies. But while our former enemies were busy converting their socialist systems to market economies, we were happily rushing headlong into socialism.

SNIP

In the U.S., we exist in a curious state of denial. We acknowledge the inferiority of socialism but continue to become more and more socialistic. Every attempt to shrink the size of government or repeal a regulation brings about a shriek, like a bottle being pulled out of the mouth of an infant. I cannot recall a Republican president or Congress who reduced the size of the federal government. No one wants to surrender a special privilege or entitlement. We know what the best system is, but we lack the discipline to return to it.

Ronald Reagan used to say that liberals know only how to tax and spend. If there was ever a man who embodies that aphorism, it is Barack Obama.

Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

The Russians and the Chinese got it almost right.

We have totally screwed up!

I’ve said yes since the day he was elected.

Look at “America” on youtube videos. In a democracy, you get the government you deserve. Obama is not the problem. The electorate is the problem.

You are just about right, America DID deserve Obama, just as a lesson as to why we should not allow individuals who were never subjected to serious probing of their past history to assume high elective or appointed office.

I would also include Elena Kagan in that category.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

“The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

“The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

— From a Polish reporter in a Czech paper quoted all of the internet but 100% true

Michael Moore got rich and received awards for “documentaries” that are a joke.

Al Gore got a prizes for “science” that would get him an F in grade school (from a private school teacher, that is).

Joe Biden should be serving burgers at a local food joint, but he’s vice President.

So, yes, we deserve the Cretin-in-Chief.

Good piece. I'd say it does deserve Obama, and it's getting a bellyful. Like the ancient Israelites, the Lord often gives people what they want until they can't stand it anymore and figure out that was not the thing to ask for.

It's out fault for letting the schools and media deteriorate to the point where more than 50% of the population have no idea what's wrong with the country.

The brain-dead freeloaders who voted for “O” DO deserve him!

However, WE are paying for their mistake (ignorance)

It may be a bit painful, but it's worth asking: how much of Obama's victory is due to the failures (real or perceived) of Bush?

Are we becoming more socialist because America really wants that, or is it just a reaction to the disappointments from the Bush years? Or some other reason?

That is exactly right.

A perfect observation.

We were asleep at the wheel.

Now that we can see the damage caused by our negligence - we will have learned a valuable lesson - for ourselves and our progeny.

Repair and restoration is our duty.

Nope Americans are stupid

Unfortunately that includes Republicans also, just look a Rommeny, someone like him shouldn't even be getting 5% of the primary vote, but he is in the lead.

If you spend a lot of time on Freerepublic or listen to Conservative Talk radio you come to believe everyone is knowledgeable like you, however just talk to the average person on the street and you will see 90% of the people don't have a F*(!@& clue and are F@!* sheep.

Obama is an islamist. If he thinks he won´t be reelected, watch out because something is sure gonna hit the fan. If he is reelected America is finished.

He may or may not be an Islamist, but what really matters is that he’s on the “other side” (which includes Islamists, Satanists, humanists, communists, etc) of the cosmic battle between Christ and those who oppose Him.

Obama is not the problem. The electorate is the problem.

As long as 47% of them pay no federal income tax, (that number will continue to creep upwards) this country will continue to elect obama and his ilk.

yes... ang I agree with Graybeard..

look what we have here in California.. we deserve it.. and about 20 to 30 percent of the population here can’t believe what is happening.. the other folks are on the dole, and the unions are getting what they want..

this country is at the tipping point. I see wide scale unrest and rioting on the horizon. Time to prepare.

If Obama wins, it will take 50 years to reverse this trend.

“When you rob Peter to pay Paul, Paul rarely complains.”

I think one thing that would bring huge change to our country would be require one to show a net positive number on their 1040 in order to vote.

Might even incent some people to work.

People keep saying that the Democrats believe in socialism. They don’t. they believe in control and theft from the public treasury. There isn’t even one Democrat who thinks that socialism works. They do believe that it’s a good smokescreen to hide behind while they raid the public treasury.

America deserves something better than this fraud—snake oil salesman. He’s a good talker, give Obama that, but hes a poor doer. We deserve Palin now or...someone else.
