Advice For Obama

November 23, 2012 by  

A quote worth remembering. “Maybe peace would have broken out with a different kind of White House, one less committed to waging a perpetual campaign–a White House that would see a 51-48 victory as a call to humility and compromise rather than an irrefutable mandate.” Does that sound like good advice for President Barack Obama? Actually, it’s a quote from Obama’s book The Audacity of Hope, which was published when he was the junior Senator from Illinois. He was talking, of course, about George W. Bush’s re-election victory.

Is it racist to want the truth? Many members of Congress are still trying to find out why we were given so much false information about the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya and the murder of our ambassador and three other Americans. They want to know why Susan Rice, our ambassador to the United Nations, helped disseminate a false explanation for the assault. In his first post-election press conference, President Barack Obama angrily defended Rice. And this week, a dozen female Democrats in the House came to Rice’s support, saying such criticism is “clear sexism and racism.” It doesn’t look like this controversy will go away anytime soon. Nor should it.

Time to stock up on Twinkies? The news that Hostess, the manufacturer famous for Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread, was closing its bakeries and firing all of its workers caused a mad scramble at grocery stores and other outlets. People were even auctioning Twinkies on eBay. The company and its labor union attempted mediation to see if closure could be avoided. Reportedly, the effort failed; but I’m sure that someone else will pick up the iconic brands. It’s hard to imagine a world without Twinkies, isn’t it?

Stop trying to kick it, Charlie Brown. Believe it or not, it’s been 60 years since Charlie Brown first tried to kick a football — and Lucy jerked it away at the last moment. Yes, the legendary comic strip “Lucy’s Great Deception” first appeared on Nov. 16, 1952. You would think that after all this time Charlie Brown would finally learn not to trust her, wouldn’t you?

    Good questions all! But to what purpose? The Ship has already set sail, it will not be returning to port, at least not in the lifetimes of any old enough to have voted on Nov.6!
    Obama was returned to office by an Army, populated by, of course, Progressives , young, unmarried women, young people in general, sexual deviates, principled( petulant) voters, minorities, and immigrants, illegal and legal!
    The latter group are the most difficult for me to understand. They fled the countries of their birth, finding the Socialist Governments in their countries intolerable. Many suffered great hardships! Yet here they vote to reinstall a Government very like those the just fled from!
    How could they make such an incongruent decision? Well given their experiences, it wasn’t simple ignorence, as is the case with most of the others, so it seems that only the term STUPID fits! As Mr. White pointed out, there are some things that just can’t be fixed!

      I’m afraid I must disagree with your last point. Stupid can be fixed! Sometimes a sharp tap alongside the head with a 2X4 works. However, failing all else a 158 grain pain reliever administered intracranially always works, but the patient rarely survives!

      • Bafco

        Only Jesus can fix stupid

      • Average Joe

        So sad … please, put this on your status if you know, work with, are related to, dated, or divorced someone who suffers from Stupidity.
        We all need to understand that Stupidity is real and must be taken seriously. You could be sitting next to a Stupid person right now and not even know it!
        There is still no known cure for Stupidity, and sympathy does not help. Occasionally, a 2×4 to the back of the afflicted’s head helps….not a lot, mind you, but it can raise awareness! 57% won’t re-post this because they don’t know how to copy and paste…….

    How many times has hussein obama criticized and demonized George Bush, his predecessor for policies and actions that hussein obama either failed to change, continued, or enhanced upon? Guantanemo, Patriot Act, Fast & Furious, Libya, employing influence peddlers…etc., etc., etc… He doesn’t have many original ideas, and the ones he does have are detrimental to the country. I prayed for haste during the last four agonizing years, only to pray for the passing of the next four. I’m praying my life away!
