Did you know that Barack Obama is our first truly American president?

You didn't?

Well, according to Emmy Award winning commentator John Ridley he is.

I thought his father was a Kenyan. If anything, by birthright, Obama is arguably our LEAST “American” President. This is a real pants load.

“....Kool-aid is bad for gray matter, especially the arugula flavored Kool-aid....”

They just tell the sheeple it is arugula. It is really porcine shat.

Obama is the FIRST American IDOL president elected by a electorate primarily consumed with celebrity worship.

Hard to disagree with that.

PS: PBS = Pure Bull Shiite

Triumph of the Will has a segment were Rudolph Hess screams ‘Deutchland ist Hitler, Hitler ist Deustland.. Adolf Hitler, SEIG HEIL’

I had to look again to see:

"Quite simply, quite plainly, just by virtue of his being, Obama is America, and the first true American to lead our nation."
-- Flaming Liberal Gasbag PBS commentator
Obama is a religion to these people.

As for award winning, there must not have been much in the way of competition that year or else he enthusiastically lewinskied the judges.

When, oh when, will the media stop kissing Obama’s ass? This is really getting creepy.

Maybe a year or so after the 'stimulus package' money has been handed out and the 'morning after remorse' begins. Only then will they start chewing their arm off...

Interesting to note that there is a group out there who are even bigger whores than tort lawyers. (My appologies to the 1% of lawyers the other 99% make a bad name for.)

In a few years we can recolonize Mexico. It will be deserted once Obama throws open the border and starts waving amnesty and “refundable tax credits” at them.

What this liberal said in the article.

“But for all their grand rhetoric and mostly good deeds, none was able to seal the deal on the trifecta of equality, plurality and socioeconomic ascendancy. Obama has. Obama is the more perfect union. He is a house united. Obama is the New Generation and the hot light of a dawn that goes way beyond clever phraseology of “Morning in America.” Quite simply, quite plainly, JUST BY VIRTUE OF HIS BEING, Obama is America, and the first true American to lead our nation.”

HE HASN’T EVEN BEEN PRESIDENT A WEEK YET, AND THEY ARE SPEWING THIS GARBAGE!

Sounds like this nutcase is putting 0bama right up next to “God.” Funny how much these atheists steal Christian imagery and ideas with their cults of personality and apocalyptic pronouncements - which makes them much more dangerous to the world than Christians could ever be.

What???

I would say he is the least "American" president we have ever had. He is the spawn child of a Communist and a Kenyan who lived most of his young life in a foreign country. When he came home, he went to an exclusive private school in Hawaii, far from the mainland

I would say that he has no idea what it is to be an American.

What's ironic is that the author strings together several cliches to describe Obama’s lack of phraseology. Obama is nothing but a few hollow phrases strung together into a mantra of “Hope and Change you can believe in.”

You are absolutely right. We either stand up and say enough or basically agree it ain’t worth saving and eventually be swallowed up and our posterity with it. Action or inaction. It is a choice either way.

In 1853, the American Flag flew over Mexico City. We foolishly gave it back.

Tippicanoe and Tyler too! Zach Tyler made it to the White Hose on that war! Just take it and keep it. Screw them! Ninety % of Mexican citizens approve of the USA absorbing Mexico.
