Something is odd about President Obama. I don’t mean the usual silly political stuff that he’s a crypto-socialist. I mean he is somehow different from any other politician. I think I began to notice something was a little off when he first started campaigning to be president — but I just couldn’t put my finger on it. It was just odd to have everyone so excited about him and no one was sure why. Then there are all the weird mistakes and goofs he’s made, which only seem to keep multiplying since he’s become president. On one side you have people trying to blow those mistakes up to show what a liberal politician he is. On the other side you have people defending all his actions. I think both sides are getting fooled here.
I finally had an epiphany when Obama, reacting to the public outcry on runaway spending, ordered that $100 million in cuts be made from the budget. The $4 trillion budget. With a projected deficit of $1.8 trillion. That’s like suddenly gaining a thousand pounds and trying to offset the weight by trimming one fingernail. If Obama’s people can find $100 million to cut every year, they’ll have the budget balanced in the year 20,009 AD, by which time the human race will probably have flown to distant galaxies in an attempt to escape the massive debt that has consumed their home planet.
So why would Obama propose something so pathetically silly? I haven’t heard anyone defend this one, but the usual explanation that he’s politically tone deaf doesn’t quite cover it. This is beyond tone deaf. There is, in fact, only one rational explanation for it: it’s a joke.
There’s a conspiracy theory out there that because Obama hasn’t released his real birth certificate, that proves he isn’t a natural citizen and is thus not eligible to be president. I was dismissive of that, but now I think it’s true. If we found his real birth certificate, my guess is that it would say that he was born in England and that his name is Sacha Baron Cohen.
That’s right; we elected Borat president.

And you thought five years of the “Bushlied” lie was bad?
ObamaDems do for free what our enemies would pay them to do, and for the benefit of ObamaDem citizens of the world, “our” means America.
Would Usama bin Laden and KSM (pictured, who gave up intel that saved US from follow up 911 attacks, thanks to waterboarding), Iran’s Mullahs and MembersOnlyJacket-ijad, and Kim Jung Il prefer that CIA agents fear prosecution by succeeding administrations for the carrying out of lawfully given interrogation orders? That CIA lawyers fear such prosecutions for confidential legal opinions?
The answer is obvious, yet President Obama is criminalizing politics and the fighting of wars much like a new junta taking over after a coup:
Senior members of the Bush administration who approved the use of waterboarding and other harsh interrogation measures could face prosecution, President Obama disclosed today. He said the use of torture reflected America “losing our moral bearings”.
He said his attorney general, Eric Holder, was conducting an investigation and the decision rested with him. Obama last week ruled out prosecution of CIA agents who carried out the interrogation of suspected al-Qaida members at Guantánamo and secret prisons around the world.
Obama, taking questions from the press during a visit by King Abdullah of Jordan, reiterated he did not believe in prosecution of those CIA agents who carried out the interrogations within the guidelines set down for them. But “with respect to those who formulated” the policies, “that is going to be more of a decision for the attorney general within the parameters of various laws”. He added: “I don’t want to prejudge that.”
Ewen MacAskill on Obama’s reluctance to prosecute torturers Link to this audio He also opened the way for a Congressional inquiry into the issue.
Meanwhile the former US vice-president Dick Cheney has called for the disclosure of CIA memos which reveal the “success” of torture techniques, including waterboarding, used on al-Qaida suspects under the Bush administration.
Before the New York Times became the de facto agent of our enemies a few years ago, adversaries from the old USSR (now Russia), Red China (still pretty red), Saddam Hussein (now dead), Iran (surrounded), North Korea and al-Qaida (now decimated) spent millions on espionage to secure classified information that would give them an advantage in their wars and competitions against us.
They are saving millions now, as it seems the only classified information these days are current legal memos of the Obama Administration. All information gathered by that inferior version of the United States of America known as the Ante-Obam-ellum Era is more available for inspection than the paintings on the walls of the White House seen during public tours.
All in the name of feeling better that we have the “moral high ground”? Or was it that we have removed a “recruiting tool” after 911? No matter that al Qaida’s recruited enough converts before 911 to carry out numerous attacks against America for a decade before and on 911, all before the enhanced interrogation days launched after said 911.
Who needs spies or even a Manchurian candidate when Americans elect a man tutored on “G-D America” sermons with political allies that regret they hadn’t bombed police stations and the Pentagon more?
And by the way Dear Communist Leader of our “equal” Nicaraguan partner, don’t blame me for President Kennedy’s attempt to save Cuba from a 50-year old Island-wide gulag.
After all Barry was only a baby? No word yet on whether James Earl Ray and Sirhan Sirhan should be pardoned since B. Hussein Obama had not reached puberty when their crimes were committed.
But this penchant (see passion) for leftist Democrats to do the bidding (see aiding and abetting) for our enemies, albeit without “adhering”, as in:
1) John Kerry’s trip to Paris to conspire with the Communist North Vietnamese;
2) The Church Commission’s decimation of the CIA and the Democratic Party majority’s abandonment of the then victorious South Vietnamese;
3) Sen. Ted Kennedy’s then secret attempted sabotage with the KGB of President Reagan’s strategies to defeat the Soviet Union;
4) Kerry and other Democrats’ public support for the Communist Sandinistas in Nicaragua while President Reagan was supporting the freedom fighting Contras; and, most recently
5) The aggression-inviting weakness of the 2003-2009 Bushlied Democrats that prolonged the Iraq War and cost more American lives by emboldening our enemies to fight on ’till their party took control of the Executive branch.
The Democrats cost the United States victory in the Vietnam War and are responsible for millions of lives slaughtered after we denied support for the champions of freedom in Southeast Asia, but thankfully, we eventually won the Cold War despite the above and President Carter’s indictment of a supposed “inordinate fear” of Communism.
And President Bush, the GOP and a remnant of JFK Dems won the Iraq War, for all intents and purposes that even Obama seems content to let stand so far.
But that same Obama is gutting the Defense budget including Strategic Missile Defense while Il ballistic missiles fly over Japan for potential Iranian customers to view; Poland, Ukraine and the Czech Republic see Obama and Medvedev look into each other’s non-souls after our President saw moral equivalence between Russian invaders and Georgians’ occupied; all while touring the world with Mr. and Mrs. Mea Culpa getting top billing on the itinerary.
We the People overcame past Democratic Party versions of “patriotism” to emerge as a City still Shining and still on top of the Hill.
I fear that after four years of Obama and these Dems, we may have to cross Delawares and enlist Old Hickorys in Nawlins in order to climb back up the Hill and restore our Liberty lighting luminescence.
Gamecock heard the fox guarding the hen house joke for years. It came true on Inauguration Day, but one good sign: The original Shining began with a Tea Party.
