Skip to comments.Obama's a 'Colossal Sick Joke'
Posted on 03/20/2014 4:59:25 AM PDT by Kaslin
It was just gag gift. A joke.
That Nobel Peace prize that the Norwegians, on behalf of the Swedes gave Barack Obama.
I always found it ironic that the guy who was a major weapons manufacturer and inventor of dynamite would put up a prize for peace to begin with. But at least he tried to make amends for being known as a merchant of death.
Not so with Barack Obama.
As wars break out all over the world, our weakest man is stuck saying what he always says: Who? Me?
This is the same man who so quickly returned the Churchill bust standing in the Oval Office to the British Embassy that it offended some Englishman and some Americans.
Obama could have learned something from Churchills life. Or Nobels.
Churchill, half-American, most decidedly was a man of war and an imperialist, yet he knew more about making peace before he was 40 years old than Barack Obama will ever know.
Churchill fought Pashtuns in Afghanistan, dervishes in Omdurman and Boers in Pretoria. Yet he made peace with South Africa and with the terrorists in the IRAat least most of them to create the Republic of Ireland. He also negotiated peaceful relations with a communist Russia, a country that he called a blood stained bear.
He negotiated with striking transport workers and coal miners and was always willing to sacrifice everything short of honor for peace and goodwill.
Thats because Churchill was a strong man, comfortable in his strength.
And people who negotiate from their strongest positions are always in the best position to ensure peace.
And that stands in stark contrast to our weakest president, Barack Obama.
For all of Obama electoral successthe only resume item worth bragging about-- one might remember that U.S. Grant also was rewarded with two terms as president.
Grant, like Churchill, was a man of war, but not a strong man outside of the battlefield. The presidency for him was a gift from a grateful nation that wanted to believe that war meant something besides killing.
Obama could learn something from Grants life too.
Ulysses Grant in his throw-away linesin his throw-away lifekept trying to get people to see the colossal sick joke, writes biographer William McFeely. All you do is take the nicest guy on the blockthe one who wont be diverted by the dreams of vainglory or revenge or the sense of masochismand knowing he is not good for much else, let him act on the bald fact that war means killing the guy on the other side, or at least scaring him badly enough that he will quit fighting.
Grant alternately spent his life basking in the adulation of crowds or apologizing to himself for finding his calling in war.
Like Nobel, he tried to make amends.
He is remembered today, like Churchill, as a great man.
Obama, however, has no throw-away lines.
He does have Grants throw-away life.
Thats because Obama cant see his own colossal sick joke: He was bestowed the presidency not because of the ascendancy of his ideas, but because of ascendancy of his race. And his race is political device, not a moral one.
The presidency, for Americans, has been a gift from a repentant nation, still ignoring the wrongs that took a great civil war to even begin to acknowledge.
And mixed amongst the national psyche, now merged with Barack Obamas ego, is vainglory, revenge and masochism.
Alfred Nobel was a noble man and a smart one.
Winston Churchill was a strong man and just one.
Ulysses Grant was a determined man who tried to make himself a good man and succeeded.
Each understood that while peace is the ideal condition, there are worse things than war, real war.
Each was known for war, but their most lasting legacy was one of peace.
Obama understands none of it. He learns nothing from life that he doesnt already know.
And thats why hes the only guy who still doesnt get the colossal sick joke.
He got a prize though.
But the jokes still on him: These days, everyone gets a prize.
Obama was elected because of his race, of that there is no doubt... but his ideas played into the election as well.
His "followers" knew that no Republican would hand out the candy in as large bundles as he would. The only thing better than voting for Santa Claus, is having Santa Claus be black.
You must remember....... Obama is not white. Therefore he need not be capable of anything.
Yeah the article goes way too complicated to make a simple point. Obama is a disaster because leftist ideas are all based on extremely dangerous fantasies.
He literally thinks all our enemies are justified. All leftists think that.
Very well worded essay. I hope we can make it.
Yeah, but what a lame excuse
Obama is perpetually angry at his parents, and it now taking it out on all of us.
He never grew up and is still an unreasoning child.
Good essay, but for Obama, none of it matters.
He will always be the one he’s been waiting for.
INCONVENIENT FACTOID---Ohaha was spawned from the viper pit of Chicago criminal politics---our WH is/was infested w/ Chicago criminals---these lowlifes never never met a decent, honest person in their entire lives.
INCONVENIENT FACTOID---O's 2008 PR person---Anita "Mao Kiss-up" Dunn---later said they let the media (voters) know only what THEY wanted them to know about Ohaha.
INCONVENIENT FACTOID---O told Putin he'd have more flexibility AFTER his 2012 election---knowing he would win when the campaign had not even begun.
INCONVENIENT FACTOID--- O's political henchman David "I'm Harmless" Axelrod took CBS-TV on a weird tour of 2012 campaign hdq. But nothing was happening. The shady voter fraud work was being conducted in swing states.
THE CHICAGO WAY
Romney never looked more stupid than when he sap-happily conceded the 20012 race election night---uttering not a word about Repubs being put through Ohaha's massive voter fraud meat-grinder. ============================================================================== The Chi/Gang are a super-strain of malevolent con artists.
Reminds me of the psychological weapon called "gaslighting"....taken from the film noir classic, "Gaslight."
Charles Boyer's character was a glib con artist, murderer and thief---he ingratiated himself w/ Ingrid Bergman, and married her, in order to move into her house----a house she inherited from her murdered aunt (murdered by Boyer for her hidden valuables).
Later the term "gaslighting" became a term to describe a pattern of psychological abuse in which the victims are gradually manipulated into doubting his/her own reality---involves the con artists using emotional gimmicks---cons often playacting as "victims" so as to dupe and disorient the targets experiencing the catastrophic effects of abusive behavior.
The desired effect of "gaslighting" is to maintain the abuser's image as a sympathetic person, while simultaneously priming the disoriented victim to believe that he/she is to blame for the ruinous mind-bending effects of their calculated mistreatment.
The Chi/crowd is an all-encompassing, well-oiled gaslighting machine......adept at co-opting the entire socio/political structure, duping the MSM and academia into becoming compliant accomplices. Democrats become prostrate----as they willingly march in lockstep, in obeisance to Obama. Too bad the entitlement crowd, the underserved, those "brothers he's keeping with tax dollars, and the 47% dont know they've all been gaslighted.
Obama is the Price America is paying for its Godless behavior.
We have abused our freedoms.
Affirmative Action Quota ?
Obama is not white you say. I say he is not ‘black’ as of “African blood’ but has dark skin like many people in the world such as Indonesia.
share with the class,f15,,,,
We must also remember that Obama, BECAUSE he is half-black, is IMMUNE to ANY criticism or blame.
I remember that too. The prize was the first “pre-awarded” prize, to encourage future events. See how well it worked?
A white Obama would never have been elected, and that’s the plain truth.
I remember phraseology to the tune of “what he’s going to do”.
