Skip to comments.Our Disgraceful President
Posted on 07/15/2012 12:46:51 AM PDT by Kaslin
Warren G. Harding was corrupt, as was Richard M. Nixon. Bill Clinton and John F. Kennedy were like blind golfers, looking for a hole, any hole, every hole. Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt were power-mad narcissists convinced they knew best how everyone else should live. Jimmy Carter was clueless. But as we approach the 100-year anniversary of the first of these men to serve as president, all have been lapped in debasing their office by its current occupant: Barack Obama.
It is understandable President Obama would not want to run on his record. Who would? Give me four more years so I can make up for the first four is not the stuff of campaign slogan greatness.
But even that wouldnt work because, as he told CBS News this week, The mistake of my first term - couple of years - was thinking this job was just about getting the policy right. And that's important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times. In other words, his only flaw is hes too damn close to perfect.
Its like someone bragging about being the most humble person on the planet.
The president of the United States thinks he needs to tell us stories to give us a sense of unity, purpose and optimism
This struck me as odd because a.) hes already told us stories, the story of his life, in count em two autobiographies written before he accomplished anything, and b.) hes made zero effort to bring people together at any point in his presidency.
Putting aside his autobiographies, which should be moved to the fiction section of the bookstore considering the 38 provable falsehoods uncovered in them remember the uproar when James Freys A Million Tiny Pieces turned out to have exaggerations and lies? Obama does it; crickets the fact this man would feel comfortable enough to speak the word unity without laughing is a testament to just how far weve fallen as a nation.
Barack Obama has done nothing but try to turn American against American based on income and accomplishment. Hes done nothing but sit silently by, smirking, while his defenders, allies, surrogates and staff have called Americans who disagree with him racists, homophobes, sexists, xenophobes, rednecks, idiots, Uncle Toms and anything else you can call someone when you cant rebut what they say with facts or accomplishments.
Silence while disgraceful words are spoken on your behalf is just as disgraceful as uttering them yourself, which, of course, makes Barack Obama a disgraceful president.
When his attorney general isnt dodging subpoenas and being held in contempt by Congress, hes calling anyone who thinks we should have to present a photo ID to vote a klansman. MSNBC, a network that seems to exist only to parrot the presidents line, unsurprisingly gets praised by the White House. This is unity?
The White House has to use and condone this because the alternative is reality, and reality is not Barack Obamas friend.
The president decided, against the express language in the law itself, he could unilaterally remove the work requirement from President Clintons welfare reform law. There is no precedent or legal justification for this action, but to question it is to be anti-poor.
Putting aside the unconstitutional nature of all this, it remains a mystery how it could be anti-poor to support a law that provably improves the lives of poor Americans, gives them their best shot at autonomy and helps move them get out and stay out of poverty. But the charge gets made, the grenade gets thrown, and the person doing it gets an invite to the next Georgetown cocktail party or White House concert.
The administration of Barack Obama embodies the worst characteristics of the worst Presidents in our history the abuse of power, the incompetence, the laziness, the bigotry, the disinterest, the dishonesty, the arrogance. The reason hes still personally popular is the same reason we know the names Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Perez Hilton or that TMZ exists A large portion of our culture now celebrates what it used to shun, cheers that which used to drive people into hiding and rewards existence over accomplishment.
Thats why the media parrots and trumpets attacks on Mitt Romneys incredibly successful private-sector record but ignores President Obamas public-sector failures. How people can question what Romney does with his own money but ignore Obama wasting literally trillions of ours is disgraceful. That President Obama would sanction the charge is worse.
Rush Limbaugh is correct when he calls President Obama President Kardashian. Only were on the receiving end of what Kim Kardashian became famous for. To paraphrase Andy Warhol, in the future well all have our own reality show for 15 minutes. Unfortunately the ratings will suck and it will serve only as a perch from which to watch the economy collapse. We can call it Disgraceful.
November could not be more important, and it cannot come quickly enough.
What about this disgrace? Jesus Mercy on our country.
A miracle could happen, please pray. The only thing Godly
Americans can do without one is a “write in” vote for President.
Either way; 0 eats. ( Michelle dines. )
No, I woke up, but will probably go back to sleep soon
Thanks for the link. Great article
Bill Clinton and John F. Kennedy were like blind golfers, looking for a hole, any hole, every hole.
stpio: What about this disgrace? Jesus Mercy on our country.
Spirited: Indeed. On one hand we have the already disgraced President while on the other there is the “I stand for everything and nothing at all” candidate.
If it is true that a societies’ leadership are reflections of the moral character of society at large, then Obama and Romney are reflections of “we the people’s” moral degeneracy.
By and large, Americans have fallen into subjectivism (moral relativism). Since everyone has his/her own truth and moral code then there really is no overriding truth and morality. By extension, the founding documents are meaningless, allowing ‘rights’ to be whatever subjectivists want them to be, which is why “new” rights are invented most every day.
So 0bambi does something unconstitutional (again). Who is going to stop him? The Republicrats? Too scared of their own shadow. The Democans? They are complicit.
0bambi could dissolve Congress tomorrow and declare himself President for life and half the people in this country would cheer! That’s how bad a shape we are in. What’s worse, there would STILL be people in the remaining half that would argue against secession, for the rule of law and the preservation of the Union.
If anyone of us doesn't vote for Mitt because we don't think he's conservative enough, then the BLOOD of our country will be on our hands!!!
Our tipping point has been reached, we are OVER the cliff.......help to elect someone who doesn't want to DESTROY this country......and maybe we can get some of our country back.
If your tagline is right, you are voting for Obama.
Make no mistake about it, winning this election guarantees attainment of his over-riding desire to supplant that old, racist, white man, who served four terms, as the longest sitting marxist President.
The people "dumber" than this scumbag commie are those who think him "dumb".
I agree with you 100 percent, and I do not understand how anyone in here does not understand that he turned into a dictator who destroyed our constitution and for the survival of this great nation must absolutely be be defeated on November 6. I just pray that they will wake up
I don't know why you (or anyone else here) bothers to post such nonsense about our Barack, Barry, Hussein, Soetoro, Obama?
I could care less if y'all had vids of the Community Agitator in Chief having sex in front of the Washington Monument at high noon with a 9 year old girl (you know, like the one who he admires so much Moo-Ham-Ud did with Aisha) or if he were to be shown (which he has) that he is a serial Prevaricator and never, ever tells the truth and breaks EVERY pledge he makes....
....or that he palled around with unrepentant Terrorists (Ayers and Dohrn)....
...or has basically shredded our sacred document and that which re "resents" and "abhors" (our Constitution) as it (supposedly) has "Negative Liberties" which proscribes what the Gov't can NOT do....
....or has shown an inclination to defend, appease and even support our sworn enemies, Islamists/Muslim Brotherhood....
....while insisting that our Military in Afgan fight under Rules of Engagement guaranteed to cause additional, unwaranted, casualties....
....while releasing captured Jihadi terrorists from Prison camps and negotiating with the Tally-Ban to release even more from GITMO...
...and conspiring with the Palestinian Authority (even sending them funding which was put on hold by Congress) who refuse to recognize Israel's "Right to Exist" as he insists on our only ally in the Middle East take steps which are tantamount to committing suicide....
....or oh well, it makes no never mind what kind of evidence is out there which shows B. Hussein Obama to be the most CORRUPT, eeeeevil, dangerous person ever to hold the office of the Presidency.....
I will under NO CIRCUMSTANCES vote for Mitt Romney as I am convinced that he is WORST (even though there is not a shred of evidence to prove that) than is Dear Leader and nothing anyone can say or do will change my mind....
....even if by doing so, that will help the bottom-feeding, scumbag, POS (who is hell bent on DESTROYING our Republic) get reelected.
SIGNED: The Hate-Mitt and Mormons Freeps here at FR.
The thing about Obama is he sold us out for NOTHING. It wasn't even corruption or stupidity. He sold out this country because - at the inner most part of his heart - he doesn't like us. Doesn't like the country - doesn't like the majority of the people...
I’ve seen this behavior before it’s the “I haven’t been awesome enough” defense.
You Could Care Less,Or You COULDNT care Less?
Seems these trolls have taken over our site. I just ignore them they make me sick.
Harding had friends who made some deals without his knowledge. They were small deals. Insignificant deals. Teapot Dome was about at the level of Watergate -- a third rate burglary with no direct presidential involvement.
Harding was the first president taken down by the press over nothing at all. Nixon ended up resigning over Watergate. Harding ended up dropping dead, perhaps in part because of the scandal over Teapot Dome.
Meanwhile, Obama's many crimes, including the deaths stemming from Fast and Furious weigh easy on Barry's shouldes and the press is gleefully helping him get a second term.
When we say "Harding was corrupt" we are basically accepting the worldview of the Ed Schultzes of the world.
