Obama: The Anti-American President, Pt. 9—An American Tragedy
Submitted by Marcus on Thu, 2010-11-04 12:25
So there we have it. The newly elected Senator for Kentucky, Rand Paul, said, "We've come to take our government back,” and they have.
From President Obama’s own confused mouth he got a “shellacking” at Tuesday’s mid-term election. After the drunken debauchery of Obama’s 2008 Presidential campaign, full of meaningless feel-good slogans of “hope and change” and “yes we can,” US voters have finally woken up to his anti-Americanism.
Giving Obama the worst mid-term defeat in 70 years and putting the GOP back in the majority in Congress with the staunch help of constitution-loving Tea Party favourites, declaring war on the despicable health reform bill, cap-and-trade bill and the crippling deficit—US voters sobered up after the post-election hangover of 2008 and had a long hard look at themselves in the mirror. Quite rightly they didn’t like what they saw. They felt dirty after their one-night stand with the dictatorphile Obamalini and swore themselves off the heady intoxication of Big Government led by a man with all the grace of a communist bull in a capitalist China-shop.
If the grass-roots Tea Party movement GOP backlash wasn’t enough, Obama seems to be alienating even his own supporters. They’ve had to endure the surreal spectacle during the mid-term campaign of Obama turning up on Jon Stewart’s comedy show mouthing the modified message, “Yes we can, but...” with a straight face. Doesn’t the President realise that when you turn up at a comedy show in a sombre tone you end up being the butt of the joke? I think he doesn’t, but the American public now do.
Obama is in serious trouble if he wishes to get re-elected in 2012. Voters have had enough of his toxic left-wing politics of the gulag with state-enforced health-insurance schemes and spreading the poverty around whilst apologizing for his country's existence to the rest of the world. They have come to a verdict. Obama is incompetent, inexperienced and vacuous. As President he lacks the ability to resonate with the public mood. He still behaves like the campaigner of 2008 with his slogans of empty rhetoric and bristling with indignation at anyone who dares disagree with him. Even when he talks about his “shellacking” at the hands of the GOP he manages to sound bumptious.
This is the President who promised to be bi-partisan and bring the country together but has been one of the most polarising political leaders in history, not just deepening racial and political divisions but actively rubbing salt in the wounds. This is the President who promised to reduce waste, corruption and special interests in Washington only to have presided over the most corrupt and wasteful Government spending binge in history. This the President who promised “hope and change” to his voters only to leave them in despair and agony. As one of his own supporters put it, “I’m exhausted from defending you.” This is a President who promised he would defend the country by getting tough with the Taleban, but so far has boasted about his exit strategy and kowtowed to his enemies.
President Obama is a great American tragedy, soon to be consigned to the dustbin of history.
The people have spoken. "We've come to take our government back.”
