Skip to comments.Contempt: The Defining Characteristic of the Obama Presidency
Posted on 07/07/2012 5:14:48 AM PDT by Lakeshark
Obama has shown contempt for American friends and allies. He insulted the Czechs and Poles when he unilaterally and without warning repudiated our missile defense agreements with them. His contemptuous snubs and denigrations of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu are notorious. He recently showed contempt for the British by refusing to say he would recognize Britain's claim to sovereignty over the Falkland Islands, even if the Falklands' residents voted for British sovereignty in a plebiscite. And just as Jimmy Carter ensured the shah's departure by rejecting him, so Obama paved the way for the Muslim Brotherhood's rise to power in Egypt by snubbing, ignoring, and abandoning a flawed ally rather than work with him to encourage reforms.
The president has shown his contempt for American voters in various ways, from whispering to Russian leader Medvedev that he will be able to concede more to Putin after he wins re-election to having the Justice Department fight state voter ID laws to decreeing that illegal immigrants be given work permits that will lead to driver's licenses that will lead to illegals being registered to vote under various "motor voter" statutes.

It sure would be nice if this was an election year and we had a real American as a candidate to point out all the America Hating policies and statements made by the Current occupier and his wife the past 4 years.
Would be nice to hear some True traditional American Values Championed,a True CHOICE to be made at an Election Day.Work Hard,Get an education,Family helping Family Neighbor helping Neighbor,NO MENTION of a tyrannical Government taking all our rights given to us By God Not sleazy, Greasy, Slimey politicians. I forget when does the republican party Pick a Candidate to bring this Message Of America?
"Your analysis of my administration is unsophisticated. You peasant."
If America votes this guy back in it will mean that America is filled with self-loathing.
Obama’s goal is to do as much damage as possible to the United States. That was his goal the day he was inaugurated. It is his goal today. If Obama is reelected, he will use his time to continue doing damage.
The perfect pictorial summary of this article!
If you read any communist screed, from Marx on down the line, they all start with trashing and bashing capitalism. They then, of course, extol the idyllic virtues of their own statist utopia.
But note how the likes of Obama and the new Democrats pose the dilemma - they try to paint the Republicans as in bed with corporations. In other words, they've taken their old enemy - fascism - and tried to paint the right with that brush. (see note * below)
Notice how they completely ignore the real roots of American exceptionalism - hard work, liberty, faith, etc.
NOTE * "Italian Fascism promotes a corporatist economic system whereby employer and employee syndicates are linked together in corporative associations to collectively represent the nation's economic producers and work alongside the state to set national economic policy. Italian Fascism promoted such economics as a "Third Alternative" to capitalism and Marxism that Italian Fascism regarded as "obsolete doctrines"." from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italian_Fascism
This undocumented POS in the oval office is going to learn in November that what goes around comes around.
“If America votes this guy back in it will mean that America is filled with self-loathing.”
If America votes this guy back in it will mean that America is filled with psychotic, adolescent scu&bags.
The author left out arrogance.
Arrogance and contempt are terrible characteristics for anyone.
A president wih arrogance and contempt as his core, is a very dangerous person for/to America.
