Skip to comments.The Great Loss of What It Means to Be an American [We're not what Obama sees and thinks of us]

.................Obama's buddies in Hollywood are loving the fact that he is finally putting an end to the "embarrassing" flag-waving, proud American, Ronald-Reagan American-exceptionalism crap. Along with standards of morality and character,patriotism gives them the heebie-jeebies.
Obama's new lowered American standard also includes making it a crime against society to make money--at least if you are a conservative or Republican.
Hardcore liberal singer Barbra Streisand can charge a gazillion dollars for a ticket to her concert. Several Democrats are multimillionaires. The Obamas eat only $150-a-pound Kobe beef.
Three of Michelle Obama's vacations cost taxpayers one million dollars. And yet Obama and his liberal friends suffer no criticism and are portrayed by the MSM as heroes of the 99 percent.
Meanwhile, small business owners who are true friends of the masses because they employ most Americans are branded by the MSM as evil,selfish one-percenters. Welcome to Obama's new standard of what it means to be an American; achievers demonized, deadbeats with their hands out sainted.
Even Democrat president JFK inspired Americans to come up higher. "Ask not what your country can do for you;ask what you can do for your country."
While Obama does not specifically say these words, his re-election message is clear. If you hate achievers as much as I, vote for me. If you believe that you have too little because the rich have too much, vote for me. If you believe that America is unjust, greedy, selfish and the greatest source of evil on the planet, vote for me. If you want government to "carry you" cradle to grave, thus controlling every aspect of your life, vote for me. If you want a "free" Obama Phone, vote for me.
Folks, Obama's vision is not who we are as a people. We are far, far greater. We are Americans!

I posted the end of Lloyd Marcus' essay. The entire piece is good reading.
Have you seen “2016”?
His desires/motives are even more psychologically freakish than you could ever imagine.
His presidency is a “payback” and -everything- he is doing is 100% intentional...and he’s just getting started.
Yes. I have!
The Obama vision for America is epitomized by the Free Obama phone lady and the Julia cartoon.... government dependency at every point in life.
There is no political way out of this morass. We live in a house divided. IMO MORE so than in 1860.
“His presidency is a payback and -everything- he is doing is 100% intentional...and hes just getting started.”
You’re right; I can’t believe anyone who works for a living (really works, not the government-job types) could ever consider voting for him.
Much of that is propped up by Leftist leaders. A new direction, a stronger economy, a sense of pride in being American.... all this will begin to shatter the hologram of division that they’re projecting on us.
To prove they’re not “racist”.
Four years ago, they “proved” they weren’t racist.
Now they have a chance to prove they’re not stupid.
