I Am Not Disappointed In President Obama


From JAKE LAMAR


From DAVID ATKINS
This is Your Modern GOP

Let’s reiterate what we just witnessed: a contender and one-time frontrunner for the nomination of the Republican Party declared that America should eliminate food stamps, Medicare and the expansion of Social Security, before stating that America should emulate China’s social safety net. And the Republican audience cheered her.

At some point the pearl clutchers and bipartisan fetishists are going to acknowledge that there is a political civil war in this country, that the right wing is going off the rails at an accelerated pace, and that these people represent a grave threat to democracy should they ever take power again.

It’s not just the Bachmanns of the world are living in a dystopic fantasyland. The GOP base is living there, too.

Please, don’t think he is necessarily the lesser of the evils. Obama has created an assassin military, is pushing for the legalization of cluster bombs, is pushing for normalization of relations with Uzbekistan (maybe the worst dictatorship in the world) in order to install military bases, is creating a huge military presence in the Persian Gulf states, and is now creating a marine base in Queensland. He is proposing a free trade zone throughout the eastern Pacific, with the exception of China, which will result in more American jobs being sent overseas. He has opened more areas in the arctic for oil exploration and has otherwise stonewalled dealing with global warming. And, he has been pushing to get all state attorney generals to agree to let the big banks off the hook for their foreclosure crimes. His DEA is out of control. His FBI, Homeland Security, and other agencies are attempting to collect data about us every way they can with intimidation of the left clearly their aim. There are many other reasons for doubting the wisdom of voting for him. Obama is not promoting democracy here or elsewhere. Since it is becoming clear we won’t have a wise choice, what we must concentrate on is electing representatives who will just say no – to whomever is elected president. A nutty president on the right might be just what is needed to wake us up and bring the whole works down.

I feel sorry for Jake Lamar; but I feel sorrier for anyone who listens to more than thirty seconds of his propaganda. Thirty seconds was more than enough to tell me that he is either terribly deluded, frighteningly ignorant, or a paid operative of the overlords. And that’s based on the content of his dribble, let alone his deathly tone.

Ship of Fools?

This quote was translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2011.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of Idiots such as those who made him their president.”
