This is a big OUCH..but good reading. Obama's approval rating is falling by the hour. Stinks to be him, eh?
With all the political talent in the US, I sure hope our side comes up with a cute little slogan that slays what is left of Obama's political career. All they need is about 30-40 good zingers for debates and he'll go down faster than a spoonful of cocaine in Charlie Sheen's living room.
I have some thoughts about the Presidential race to share at some point. Perry executed close to 300 people during his ten years? I'm 100% behind the teaching of the Church that permits executions of criminals for the common good...but 300 people isn't what the Church has in mind. 300 people is using the death penalty as retaliation and punishment. There are better choices for Catholics to support than Perry, but I will say that if it came down to the phoney baloney proabortion Romney and Perry, when you get right down to a number crunch on lives that would be lost, the sanctity of life is far better off with Perry.
Anyway - enjoy this piece.
Nero in the White House
By Mychal Massey
Three significant historical events have been eclipsed by Obama: 1) Jimmy
Carter will no longer be looked upon as the worst president in American
history; 2) Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton will no longer be recognized as
the greatest liars in presidential history; 3) Clinton's stain on Monica's
dress, and what that did to the White House in general and the office of
the president specifically, will forever pale in comparison to the stain
and stench of Obama.
I need not spend much time on the failure of Obama as president. His
tenure has been a failure on every measurable level. So much so, in fact,
that some of the staunchest, most respected liberal Democrats and
Democratic supporters have not only openly criticized him some even more
harshly than this essayist but they have called for him to step down.
Richard Nixon's words "I am not a crook," punctuated with his involvement
in Watergate, and Bill Clinton's finger-wagging as he told one of the most
pathetic lies in presidential history, in the aftermath of Obama, will be
viewed as mere prevarications.
Mr. Nixon and Clinton lied to save their backsides. Although, I would
argue there are no plausible explanations for doing what they did, I could
entertain arguments pursuant to understanding their rationales for lying.
But in the case of Obama, he lies because he is a liar. He doesn't only
lie to cover his misdeeds he lies to get his way. He lies to belittle
others and to make himself look presentable at their expense. He lies
about his faith, his associations, his mother, his father and his wife. He
lies and bullies to keep his background secret. His lying is congenital
and compounded by socio-psychological factors of his life.
Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such
dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political
figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his
presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is
unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to
As the stock markets were crashing, taking with them the remaining life
saving of untold tens of thousands, Obama was hosting his own birthday
celebration, which was an event of epicurean splendidness. The
shamelessness of the event was that it was not a state dinner to welcome
foreign dignitaries, nor was it to honor an American accomplishment it
was to honor the Pharaoh, Barack Hussein Obama. The event's sole purpose
was for the Pharaoh to have his loyal subjects swill wine, indulge in
gluttony and behavior unfit to take place on the property of taxpayers, as
they suffer. It was of a magnitude comparable to that of Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski's $2 million birthday extravaganza for its pure lack of respect for the people.
Permit me to digress momentarily. The U.S. Capitol and the White House
were built with the intent of bringing awe and respect to America and her
people. They were also built with the intent of being the greatest of
equalizers. I can tell you, having personally been to both, there is a
moment of awe and humility associated with being in the presence of the
history of those buildings. They are to be honored and inscribed into our
national psyche, not treated as a Saturday night house party at Chicago's
The people of America own that home Obama and his wife continue to debase
with their pan-ghetto behavior. It is clear that Obama and family view
themselves as royalty, but they're not. They are employees of "we the
people," who are suffering because of his failed policies. What message
does this behavior send to those who today are suffering as never before?
What message does it send to all Americans who are struggling? Has anyone
stopped to think what the stock market downturn forebodes for those 80
million baby boomers who will be retiring in the next period of years? Is
there a snowball's chance in the Sahara that every news program on the air
would applaud this behavior if it were George W. Bush? To that point,
do you remember the media thrashing Bush took for having a barbecue at
the White House?
Like Nero who was only slightly less debaucherous than Caligula with
wine on his lips Obama treated "we the people" the way Caligula treated
those over whom he lorded.
Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was
elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital
liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed
policies, intimidation and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in
political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an
entitlement while America's people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.
