donna: “I wonder if his daughters like separate vacations.”
Political ideologies are one thing, but President Obama, Michelle, and the daughters are people. It saddens me when anyone doesn’t live up to their potential, and I’m not talking about riches or power. Just think how Obama would have turned out if he’d had two loving, committed, moral parents? What if he’d had a proper Christian upbringing rather than all the social justice, racial grievance, and black liberation crap? Our president has real problems. So does his wife. I despise his ideology but I don’t hate the man. I pity him.
While I agree with you on a general level, Citizen, I think you “generalize” too far, and then try to apply it individually. Just a bit wrong-headed, in my not so humble opinion, and you are missing the mark.
We all have an obligation to get over whatever crap happened to us when we were kids. God gave us brains for a reason. Barry Dunham had many more opportunities than others born in very similar circumstances, and they didn’t become liars, socialists, and deceivers.
Let us call him by his honestly earned original name, and cut the sob psychobabble nonsense.
Barry Dunham, he is. We have no idea who his father is, and it certainly wasn’t the idiot senior Obama, who was an abusive drunkard, and only saw him once in his life (if I remember right).
President Dunham has a certain ring, doesn’t it? Might remind him, if used publicly, that he may have fooled some of the people, but not all of the people, etc.
No matter how lousy his childhood, there is no excuse for his disrespect for the Constitution and the Presidency, his arrogant and egotistical assumptions of power, or his attempt to over-ride the powers given to the congress, flawed as that institution might be .
Many people all over the world have suffered worse than “poor little barry”, but have grown up, overcome bitterness and “poor-me” excuses, and have grown into honorable and trustworthy neighbors and citizens.
And, just do you know - there are many loving, committed, and moral parents who provided a proper Christian upbringing to their children, who then ended up rebelling, making wrong choices, and breaking their parents’ hearts.
Free will, and all that. Do not make excuses for an adult individual’s wrong choices in life.
Barry Dunham had many opportunities given to him, but failed to make the grade. It is his fault alone.
It is also the fault of the “illiterati” among us that he was elected in the first place. We have lost our republic to the greedy, who will vote for anyone promising to redistribute our hard earned dollars, and little Barry Dunham is just another little hitler wanna-be.
Time will tell whether he pulls it off. Given the present state of our brain-dead press, I wouldn’t want to place a bet against him.
