“Sometimes when I’m in a big important international meeting and you see me writing stuff down it might be that I’m just drawing some folks.” — Barack Obama (Obama Doodles During “Important International Meetings”)
President “Doodles” continued his re-election campaign in Cincinnati on Monday — appropriately enough, the home of the Reds — where he met with none other than former mayor and current t.v. sleazemeister Jerry Springer, another ‘progressive’ Democrat who’s made a career of shameless exploitation. Springer is still possessed, four years after he should have learned better, of the infamous Chris Matthews ‘tingle':
[Obama's] “so competent and so smart, I just don’t see why we wouldn’t want him for four more years as president.”
Whadda ya mean “we”, Kemosabe? As Mychal Massie points out:
[Obama's] record as president resulted in the greatest democrat losses on a state and federal level in 75 years in the 2010 off-year elections. His record is 14-plus percent factual unemployment, 23.2 million persons unemployed and $15.8 trillion deficit that has increased a trillion dollars every year during his presidency. His record as president has resulted in 63 percent of the nation standing adamant in their opinion that he is responsible for the country going in the wrong direction. (If Anyone Is A Criminal, It’s Obama | The Daily Rant: Black Conservative Mychal Massie’s Hard Hitting Commentary on Race, Obama and Politics)
James Lewis at The American Thinker lists a few more reasons:
Obama really is an ideological radical — there’s no honest doubt about it anymore, given his expressed anti-capitalist and anti-constitutionalist views, his solid phalanx of radical associates throughout life, and his repeated assault on everyday Americans. And while Obama is the most convincing liar since Bill Clinton, he has essentially given up on hiding his radicalism … In his heart of hearts, President O is always enraged at the American people — those bitter clingers — but this time it’s personal. Gone is the smiling messiah, and in his place we see a persecutory personality, a real witch-hunter who may lose the election but won’t pass up a chance to scourge this country with the whip of righteousness, to tell us what he really thinks. Under the smiling mask, Obama is Rev. Jerry Wright. (Is Obama Ripping Off the Mask?)
Then there’s this:
Obama told Democratic leaders he would refuse to entertain any talk about separating $550 billion in defense cuts from the overall $1.2 trillion in across-the-board spending reductions set by law to kick in next year — despite repeated demands from GOP leaders and the Pentagon to do so. (Democrats play hardball on defense cuts, taxes | Times 247)
$550 billion is not a cut, it’s an amputation. Barack Obama is using the national security of the United States as leverage in order to increase taxes. Unconscionable to be sure, but to the committed Marxist the end always justifies the means, and what Obama is after is the end of America as it currently exists, listing so far to the left and so ideologically ossified that he’s even beginning to frighten the Jackasses:
“Democrats in Washington have been horrified by this president’s handling of things for a year-and-a-half now…the top Democrats in the United States Senate have all told me individually, this guy has no idea what he’s doing …” — Joe Scarborough
Similarly, the electorate had no idea what it was doing in 2008 when it installed a Red-ink, progressive doodler as the 44th American president. It’s time to remedy that grievous error.
Socialist? Communist? Three Questions for Obama (The American Thinker):
1. Was Obama really a communist when he entered Occidental College, as his former classmate, John Drew, claims and details quite conclusively?
2. Did Obama really join the socialist New Party in the 1990s, as Stanley Kurtz maintains?
3. If yes and yes, then when and why and how did Obama repudiate communism and socialism — assuming he did? Where was the break? Why? When did the conversion happen?
