The President of Disgrace
Warren G. Harding was corrupt, as was Richard M. Nixon. Bill Clinton
and John F. Kennedy were like blind golfers, looking for a hole, any
hole, every hole. Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt were power-mad
narcissists convinced they knew best how everyone else should live.
Jimmy Carter was clueless. But as we approach the 100-year anniversary
of the first of these men to serve as president, all have been lapped in
debasing their office by its current occupant: Barack "Barry" Obama.
It is understandable Obama would not want to run on his
record. Who would? “Give me four more years so I can make up for the
first four” is not the stuff of campaign slogan greatness.
But even that wouldn’t work because, as he told CBS News this week,
“The mistake of my first term - couple of years - was thinking this job
was just about getting the policy right. And that's important. But the
nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people
that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially
during tough times.” In other words, his only flaw is he’s too damn
close to perfect.
It’s like someone bragging about being the most humble person on the planet.
The president of the United States thinks he needs to tell us stories to give us “a sense of unity, purpose and optimism…”
This struck me as odd because a.) he’s already told us stories, the
story of his life, in – count ‘em – two autobiographies written before
he accomplished anything, and b.) he’s made zero effort to bring people
together at any point in his presidency.
Putting aside his autobiographies, which should be moved to the fiction section of the bookstore considering the thirty-eight provable falsehoods
uncovered in them – remember the uproar when James Frey’s A Million
Tiny Pieces turned out to have exaggerations and lies? Obama does it;
crickets – the fact this man would feel comfortable enough to speak the
word “unity” without laughing is a testament to just how far we’ve
fallen as a nation.
Barack Obama has done nothing but try to turn American against
American, family member against family member. He’s done nothing but sit
silently by, smirking, while his defenders, allies, surrogates and staff
have called Americans who disagree with him racists, homophobes,
sexists, xenophobes, rednecks, idiots, Uncle Toms and anything else you
can call someone when you can’t rebut what they say with facts or
accomplishments as do all liberal/progressive types.
Silence while disgraceful words are spoken on your behalf is just as
disgraceful as uttering them yourself, which, of course, makes Barack
Obama a disgraceful president.
When his attorney general isn’t dodging subpoenas and being held in
contempt by Congress, he’s calling anyone who thinks we should have to
present a photo ID to vote a Klansman. MSNBC, a network that seems to
exist only to parrot the president’s line, unsurprisingly gets praised
by the White House. This is unity?
The White House has to use and condone this because the alternative is reality, and reality is not Barack Obama’s friend.
The president decided, against the express language in the law
itself, he could unilaterally remove the work requirement from President
Clinton’s welfare reform law. There is no precedent or legal
justification for this action, other than to help increase the entitled population to even a greater extent, but to question it is to be anti-poor and racist.
Putting aside the unconstitutional nature of all this, it remains a
mystery how it could be anti-poor to support a law that provably
improves the lives of poor Americans, gives them their best shot at
autonomy and helps move them out and stay out of poverty. But the
charge gets made, the grenade gets thrown, and the person doing it gets
an invite to the next Georgetown cocktail party or White House concert.
The administration of Barack Obama embodies the worst characteristics
of the worst Presidents in our history – the abuse of power, the
incompetence, the laziness, the bigotry, the disinterest, the
dishonesty, the arrogance. The reason he’s still personally popular is
the same reason we know the names Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Perez
Hilton or that TMZ exists – A large portion of our culture now
celebrates what it used to shun, cheers that which used to drive people
into hiding and rewards existence over accomplishment......famous for making themselves famous. What was once wrong is now right and what was once right is now wrong!
That’s why the media parrots and trumpets attacks on Mitt Romney’s
incredibly successful private-sector record but ignores President
Obama’s public-sector failures. How people can question what Romney does
with his own money but ignore Obama wasting literally trillions of ours
is disgraceful. That President Obama would sanction the charge is
Rush Limbaugh was correct when he calls President Obama “President
Kardashian.” Only we’re on the receiving end of what Kim Kardashian
became famous for. To paraphrase Andy Warhol, in the future we’ll all
have our own reality show for 15 minutes. Unfortunately the ratings will
suck and it will serve only as a perch from which to watch the economy
We can call it “Disgraceful.”
