Barack Hussein Obama says that people like me don’t like him because he has a “funny name” and because he is, as he identifies himself, a black man. But the actual reason I don’t like Obama is because of insufferable ploys like that one: “If you oppose or criticize me, you’re a racist.”
With about three months to go to the moment of truth, such a preposterous rationale is intended to paralyze and suspend normal political criticism. It’s grossly unfair and racist in itself. Let’s see how much more mileage this goddamned charlatan gets out of what John McCain today finally and bluntly called “playing the race card.” I think it’s bound to backfire on Obama in a big way —and with crucial Democratic voting blocs, viz., Northeastern Catholics, Rust Belt blue-collars, older folks (especially Floridian Jews), and large segments of the Latino vote.
The legend that is growing up around this unqualified liar is that he represents a post-racial America. Yet the support he receives from Black America exceeds even the usual 90-10 split the Democratic Party can count on every cycle. How is that suggestive of a post-racial appeal? The very idea is a joke, as was repeatedly demonstrated in the last several Democratic primaries.
It just so happens that it’s Barack Obama who comes into an electoral dynamic where his identity and character are not even known to the majority of Americans. All that can be known about him is what he asserts himself and his beliefs to be. So why is that acceptable? It is not. It is not enough for a man to claim to be something; he must demonstrate himself to be worthy of the most powerful office on Earth.
On that point, McCain is unquestionably the better choice. He is known to the society he is asking to lead. He is known to us as a man of real character and as a man with a demonstrated record of service. On what basis is Obama asking to lead us? On the strength of his good looks and his alleged mastery of the oratorical arts? Well, that’s the audacity of horseshit. If guilt-ridden white liberals want a black man to play at being President, they might as well choose Morgan Freeman (who happens to be a good and interesting man, which I would know from years of reading about him, seeing him in interviews, and sharing in his artistic choices).
I wish I could suppress my contempt for people who support this nonsense, but I am having a hard time of it. I am sorry to even have to say that, but it is true. Ever since about Super Tuesday, I have looked on the Democratic Party in much the same way that I looked on the Republicans in the wake of the Schiavo Unpleasantness. To me, the Democrats have absolutely gone mad. Does their self-loathing as Americans run so deep that they would inflict this crap on our culture without any thought of its recklessness?
The answer is obvious.
Jon Voight, the actor who played Milo Minderbinder in the indispensible film Catch-22, blasts Obamachrist in Monday’s Washington Times:
With what he has openly stated about his plans for our military, and his lack of understanding about the true nature of our enemies, there’s not a cell in my body that can accept the idea that Mr. Obama can keep us safe from the terrorists around the world, and from Iran, which is making great strides toward getting the atomic bomb. And while a misleading portrait of Mr. Obama is being perpetrated by a media controlled by the Democrats, the Obama camp has sent out people to attack the greatness of Sen. John McCain, whose suffering and courage in a Hanoi prison camp is an American legend.
Thanks for being a real American, sir, and for being the exception that proves the rule of the Leftist Hollywood establishment. Oh, and for fathering Angelina Jolie. That mustn’t be forgotten.
The Speaker of the House announced today:
Americans know that thanks to the two oilmen in the White House, consumers are now paying $4 a gallon for gas. But what Americans should realize is that what the President is calling for is drilling as close as three miles off of America’s pristine beaches and in other protected areas.
The President has failed in his economic policy, and now he wants to say, “but for drilling in protected areas offshore, our economy would be thriving and the price of gas would be lower.” That hoax is unworthy of the serious debate we must have to relieve the pain of consumers at the pump and to promote energy independence.
How are Bush and Cheney responsible for the huge spike in the price of oil across the world? Could it be that the two most populous nations on Earth are seeing huge spikes in their own consumption of oil —and that this, above all else, is what’s driving these prices? It’s nothing but lunatic gibberish to blame these “oilmen” for the astonishing growth of China’s and India’s economies.
Were it not for the completely outmoded restrictions placed on domestic oil production and refining capacity by asshole Democrats, the United States would obviously be in a better position to adapt to the global increase in the price of oil —again clearly driven by the spike in Asia’s consumption.
Our country does not allow new oil refineries or new nuclear power plants to be built because of the anachronistic “concerns” of asshole Democrats. These restrictions weren’t an issue when we were paying a buck a gallon not too many years ago, but now? The lack of foresight on the part of environmentalists and their Gaiist fringe is now costing us all. Our economy is suffering not because we don’t have the resources, but because assholes and Edenists won’t permit their use.
Note that the same sacks of hippie shit who think themselves superior to Christians by virtue of Science are the ones who have no confidence in American drilling and refining technology. How much oil was spilled when Katrina and Rita devastated the Gulf Region? Not even enough to get Obama to Davos and back.
Why are the Democrats handing such a gift to the Republicans? I don’t know. But if Bush is smart, he’ll pull a Truman on these do-nothing liars this summer and make them reconvene the Congress to allow a vote on lifting these stupid restrictions. If there’s some Republicans in trouble who’d rather be back home campaigning, then let them make their case to their constituents from the floors of the House and Senate. They’ve got work to do and they can damned well do it from there.
Is it really possible that Barack Hussein Obama authorized the dissemination of the handwritten prayer he stuck in a crack in the Western Wall in Jerusalem last week? When I first heard that the note had supposedly been plucked out by a bystander and published, I thought it was a pretty contemptible thing to do, regardless of my dislike for the non-Christian phony who stuck it there. But if these new rumors prove true —that Obama actually shared his prayer with reporters upon leaving the King David Hotel— then I will have to revise my list of his most egregious campaign moments thus far.
The reason the rumors ring true is that this is a man who abandoned his church because it had become a political liability for him. Making a press release of his prayer to the Almighty doesn’t sound like much of a stretch at all.
Richard Cohen, who once called Israel a “mistake,” is now saying this about Obamachrist:
“Just tell me one thing Barack Obama has done that you admire,” I asked a prominent Democrat. He paused and then said that he admired Obama’s speech to the Democratic convention in 2004. I agreed. It was a hell of a speech, but it was just a speech.
On the other hand, I continued, I could cite four or five actions — not speeches — that John McCain
has taken that elicit my admiration, even my awe. First, of course, is his decision as a Vietnam prisoner of war to refuse freedom out of concern that he would be exploited for propaganda purposes. To paraphrase what Kipling said about Gunga Din, John McCain is a better man than most.
McCain is, of course, a better man than Obama. But in these times of Big Media perversion and the obvious anti-Americanism of the Democratic Party, I’m not too sure if that will be enough to get McCain elected.
Stopping the stupidity of this Obama cult is all that matters now.
Man, I cannot get rid of this song! I love it, but it’s been owning my ass all day.
Could be worse, though. Could be like the time I had “Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves” in my head for like a couple of days. Jesus!
One of the hippies over at Duncan Black’s opium den linked to this Adam Nagourney analysis. I think the boy’s still smarting at his recent treatment by the Savior’s campaign team. What do you think?
It is a question that has hovered over Senator Barack Obama even as he has passed milestone after milestone in his race for the White House: Why is he not doing better?
It shadowed him as he struggled against Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton in many states through the primaries – results that sometimes stood at odds with the huge, enthusiastic crowds that turned out to see him. It was there in the exit polls that suggested that many Democrats were uncomfortable with Obama, putting an asterisk next to some of his biggest primary victories.
And it is back again as he returns from an overseas trip that even Republicans have described as politically triumphant. In this case, the question is why, given how sour Americans feel about President George W. Bush and the Republican Party, about the Iraq war and the ailing economy that Bush will leave to his successor and about the perception that Obama is running such a better campaign than Senator John McCain, the senator from Illinois is not doing even better in national opinion polls.
The answer to your question, Adam, is that no one knows. With almost the entire Big Media establishment just queer for the man, it’s difficult to see what’s keeping Obama’s numbers down in the single digits. His coronation is a foregone conclusion, if you watch the TV or read propagandistic shit like the New York Times, so who knows?
But keep working on the antagonism, baby. It may some day even come to resemble journalism.
Yesterday, Loudmouth Matthews told Scott McClellan that he liked his new book. “A hell of a book,” he said. In fact, the spittle-flecked nimrod observed:
It reads like my view of things.
Wow. Indictments don’t get handed down like that too often.
Be sure to catch Jake Tapper’s report of an open mic conversation caught between Obamachrist and Britain’s Conservative Party leader David Cameron:
“You should be on the beach,” Cameron told Obama. “You need a break. Well, you need to be able to keep your head together.”
“You’ve got to refresh yourself,” agreed Obama.
“Do you have a break at all?” asked Cameron.
“I have not,” said Obama. “I am going to take a week in August.”
Translation: “You’re slippin’, Barry. Charisma can’t pull the whole load. You also have to know what you’re talking about, but it’s too late for that now.”
John Nichols of The Nation pens a paean to Obama Soter on the occasion of the savior’s now-legendary speech before the Seduction of the Bratvolk. It is like a long mash note —full of girlish daydreams and the first suggestions of cocklonging. Enjoy (emphases mine):
The young senator from Illinois needed to establish himself as a credible world leader by going to Iraq and Afghanistan evidencing both his recognition of George Bush’s manifest mistakes and his willingness and ability to wage a functional fight against legitimate terrorist threats. Check!
He needed to establish himself as respected commander-in-chief by not just appearing for photo-opportunities with troops in the field but by connecting with soldiers so that that all Americans who recognize their confidence in the man who seeks the authority to send these young men and women into life-and-death battles. Check!
Mind you, these are just Nichols’ first thoughts on the subject. He goes on and on like this through much more of a very insubstantive and hugely egocentric speech —never once seeming to take notice of the stupidity in his own puerile and uncritical squeezings.
Is it really possible for a grown man —assuming that’s what Nichols is— to believe that the act of travelling to other countries and having your picture taken there “establishes” you as the most powerful man in the world? Seems like nobody thought too much of Bush the Younger declaring “Mission Accomplished” prematurely —but this unqualified liar is somehow made into a leader of men by no more virtue than being seen? What an embarrassing thought to be responsible for!
It is liberal-Left political analyses like Nichols’ that makes absolute nonsense of the truth. He and the people who think like him are nothing but propagandists for a totalitarian-minded demagogue. Where is the intellectual integrity in supporting Barack Hussein Obama when there is another candidate in this race whose patriotism, competence, experience, and recognizable humility are not in doubt?
