Four Years, Four Reasons Why I Loathe Obama

May 8, 2013 by  

Four Years, Four Reasons Why I Loathe Obama
President Barack Obama visited Costa Rica and Mexico recently.

When President Barack Obama left for Mexico and Costa Rica last week, I felt a sense of relief, the feeling you get when the crazy uncle no longer shows up for Thanksgiving dinner.

The official line from the White House was that the President went to reinforce the deep cultural, familial and economic ties that so many Americans share with Mexico and Central America.

I do not doubt for one moment that Obama has a lot in common with those Latin dictators who have bled their countries dry through overspending.

And there is always that lingering hope that you get when you buy a Super Lotto ticket: Obama may like it so well that he will set up another dictatorship south of our border. Either that or — like Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, who recently moved back to the Vatican — our President will leave the Oval Office, become President emeritus and move into the basement of the White House.

You may think it’s an impossible dream. But the President recently joked he should “just pack up and go home” if Congress is going to continue resisting his policies. My reaction is: “Congress, keep up the good work.”

If I sound bitter, it is because I am. In my own defense I’ve been married for 33 years, and even my wife doesn’t think I am any more bitter than the average guy. I respect the office of the Presidency. While I haven’t liked some Presidents, I did not hold them in disdain. But I’ve been writing about Barack Hussein Obama for more than four years, and it has been like covering a train wreck — something I know about because when I was in my 20s, I was one of the first reporters at the Hinton, Alberta, train collision that killed 23 people. Not only is a train wreck something you can’t look away from; but when your job is to cover it, you damn well have to look at it.

I see no difference in my responsibility three decades later, because I believe that it is my job as a writer for Personal Liberty Digest™ to report on the Obama train wreck that has methodically been killing our liberties.

Below I have listed the top four reasons why I loathe Obama.

4. Obama is an elitist.

In case you haven’t been reminded enough, Obama not only graduated Harvard Law School, but he was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review and was a student at Columbia University. If any American were to ever doubt Obama’s intelligence, all his supporters have to do his point out his college pedigree.

The President’s own words only make it worse. In April 2008, Obama described small-town voters to rich backers in San Francisco: “[I]t’s not surprising, then, that they get bitter, and they cling to guns or religion, or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them.” Later, when speaking to wealthy donors in Massachusetts, Obama said his opponents were “playing on fear” and that “we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared.”

Obama may or may not be the smartest guy in the room, but he certainly thinks he is. He reminds me of a friend who couldn’t stop reminding everybody every two hours that he graduated Yale University. That was always his trump card if he was losing an argument.

3. Obama is a self-centered, egotistical celebrity.

Given the international acclaim Obama has had for the past five years, he is Oprah Winfrey on steroids. (Picture that and tell me you’re not afraid.)

Everything that happens in America is about Obama. If times are fortuitous, like the killing of Osama bin Laden, Obama wants all the credit; yet he stands at the ready to blame others in his Administration if things go wrong. (This is pointed out in startling detail by bestselling author Richard Minter in his book Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him.)

When Neil Armstrong passed away, Obama celebrated that hero’s life by having himself photographed while looking at the full moon. (We never heard whether that experience made him grow hair, teeth and claws.)

And on April 26 in an opinion piece for POLITICO, Keith Koffler wrote:

Tuesday morning, a peculiar announcement trickled out of the White House press office: President Barack Obama would be holding a moment of silence for the victims of the Boston bombings. At the White House. By himself. No press or other intruders allowed.

Except the White House photographer.

That Obama assumed Americans would want an iconic photo of him privately mourning the victims of the bombings was emblematic of a kind of hubris that has enveloped the president and his White House as the president commences his second term.

After the death of Trayvon Martin, the President said during a press conference that Trayvon could be his son. Unless Obama knows something about the Martin family that we don’t, he should just shut the heck up.

2. He is a righteous environmentalist.

You name it, when it comes to fossil fuels, Obama is against it. He has obstructed U.S. offshore oil exploration, and the things he fancies the most are electric cars and windmills. And like any messiah, he is going to deliver his green prophecy to the world.

The Obama Administration has announced it will spend up to $400 million on green projects around the world. (He also wants to survey the satellite television viewing habits of Africans — which is funny because when I was in Africa, they didn’t have televisions.)

More delusions of grandeur, not only does our President want to reduce carbon in America, he also wants to limit that dirty oil mined and exported by those filthy Canadians. And now he wants to improve the “regulation and governance of Africa’s energy sectors” so they can make “low carbon development” a critical priority for themselves. I think Africans are probably more worried about having clean water, good crops and a reprieve from genocidal dictators.

1. He rejects the U.S. Constitution.

It should not surprise anyone that Obama once taught Constitutional law at the University of Chicago. It seems to have only nurtured his hatred for the U.S. Constitution, and it was a launching point for his malicious attempts to undermine it. That would explain his all-out attack against American’s rights on everything from free speech to individual privacy to, most recently, our fundamental right to bear arms.

Last week, Missouri State Representative Casey Guernsey, a Republican lawmaker, said it best to Daily RFT regarding gun control: “Just because President Obama has declared that something is constitutional doesn’t make it so… I don’t think you can put a dollar amount on the value of constitutional rights.”

We need to be thankful for people who are willing to stand up to the President, like Guernsey and Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) who spoke last week at the National Rifle Association annual convention.

Cruz said: “For some reason Obama liberals want to disregard the First Amendment and take away our right to speak and political speech. For some reason they want to disregard the Fourth and Fifth Amendments. And, for some reason the Obama liberals want to disregard the Tenth Amendment and implement Obamacare and take away our liberties.”

Obama Is The Lincoln Lawyer

The easy part in writing to you this week was putting down the words. The hard part was in narrowing it down to four primary reasons why I loathe Obama and why, after four years, you should as well. I could have written 44 reasons why I loathe him and still not said my peace. But these are my top four, and they reveal a fundamentally flawed President — a man who may envision himself to be a black Abraham Lincoln. His ego seems to have no limits, and his reckless disregard for individual liberties may yet make him the tyrant that his hero Lincoln was.

Yours in good times and bad,

    You nailed it. I have never been very involved or emotionally roused over politics in my life. ( Over 40).
    Since this (Chicago-thug, Marxist) President as been in office, I find myself inexplicably furious every day. I often feel that I woke up in Cuba, or worse. He is the most arrogant and duplicitous liar. He has dismantled our health care delivery system, has disgarded our Constitution, shamed us overeas,and has demoralized & weakened our militar. He has made it cyrstal clear that he feels the successful and hard-working are too rich and should support the poor and the government. He has demoralized the small business owner, and has rewarded the ones
    who feel they sh

    • Susan

      Yes you are 100% correct and I hate to see where we will be by the end of his term. We need to go ahead and accept that to die for freedom is better than to live under tyranny. That is why he is slowly undermining our military. So that he can use them against citizens. Something that a military force loyal to the Constitution would never do! God help us to be strong to the very end for the titanic has hit the iceberg and we will eventually go down.

  • Jenell Stricker

    I agree 100%! He is a dictator and God help us if by some fluke in our constitution, he never leaves office! His only goal is to ruin our country! I pray that God keeps His hand on our country, but even He sees the downfall of our beloved country and He will hold us all accountable!

  • Uncle Toms Cabin, the white house

    5. Obama is the stooge for the international bankers. (Incidentally, so have been most of the presidents since the Federalist movement under Alexander Hamilton. Those who have dissented, such as Andrew Jackson, have had attempts on their lives and/or been killed. Kennedy, who wanted to eliminate the Federal Reserve and replace their “currency” with backed dollars, is a good example here). (Google the Kennedy Fed Reserve repkacement dollars for background). This guy, hobama, is a stooge and uncle tom for Goldman Sachs,

  • Uncle Toms Cabin, the white house

    For those of you who dont bekieve that the Kenyan-Marxist-Homo (google Chicsgo Mans Country/Obama) hobama isnt all of this and that he hates the US, Remember John Kennedy: when he wanted to stimulate the economy, he Cut Taxrs on everyone! Less taxes equals more money. More money equals more spending. More spending requires more product orders. More product orders, equals more need for employees. Whallah! More jobs.

    • Ron r

      Yeah the few years he heald office were a boom for Wall Street . At least in your revisionist history riddled mind.

      • Trevor

        The economy and Wall Street are not the same… I know, news flash right?

        Setting up the foundation for robust economic growth doesn’t necessarily translate directly and immediately into market growth. Market growth does not create wealth. Taking raw materials and adding value creates wealth. Monetary policy should in theory be tied to the amount of true wealth we create.

  • http://Facebook Brenda Watson

    I don’t trust anything he says. Really afraid of what he’s going to do next. It’s really sad when you can’t trust the president. He’s playing games with our country and freedom. We really need to get him out.

    It’s curious the author chose the quantity (4)…
    “Four” in Chinese means “death”.
    An excellent parallel to the vacant O-team promises.

  • http://AT&T James Duncan

    I ditto everything you said. As a retired police officer and trained in techniques of deception. Although trained, I could detect things about him I found to be disturbing. As a Christian I vehemently know he can’t even lie well!!
    Suggested reading is “The Harbinger” by Johnatan Cahn. It tells the anchient mystery that holds the secret of Americas future.
    You will find it very interesting.

  • Tommy Jones

    Just to let you know that no one could of hit the mail on the head any better. I’m not racist but have been call one by him and his cronie a lot and dam well getting tired of it. He says he is a religious man but the death of 4 people in Benghazi and him and Hillary just want to sweep it under the rug they have no shame. He want our guns so that this one billion hollow point shells can put the people in there place. He want us like all country under dictator will only have rock and sticks to protect our selves. No matter what happen the poor whites, black, and Latino will get enough free to keep people like him in office. Since I know I can pray I pray that this Benghiza deal finishes him and Hillary both.

  • Donny tindall

    As true as you say we know we have a problem with self anointed Barry. What will it take to dethrone this dictator? That’s the big question we all want an answer to.

  • Don miller

    Well talk is cheap people get out there and vote vote all these cowards and liars out of office on election time and I mean every last one of them if you don’t want a call to arms to throw them out then use the process and vote them out one way or another they all need to go or this type of thing is going to go on forever

    • Josiah Rise

      Electronic voting machines are rigged like one-arm bandits, so, no real hope there. And if you think the banksters will allow a “republican” in there to fix up the mess, you’ve been drinking too much cool-aid. They’ll be sure to place a wolf in republican clothing that will only further the elitist’s agenda.

    • Ron r

      What call to arms? That is treasonist and btw how do you go against the government with small arms when they have tanks and the best military in the world. Are you kidding????

      • Trevor

        you’re right there’s probably not going to be an actual revolution. The Patriots have been outnumbered by the slaves to the state who have quietly ushered in a revolution without bloodshed through evolving of the scope, depth and reach of this formerly constitutional democratic republic. The Patriots I speak of understand this. It is NOT treason to stand up for the Constitution and Bill of Rights regardless of how democrats may feel when the light of truth is shown on them.

  • baser13

    Unfortunately all the reader’s of this tabloid take all your Propaganda as knowledge and truth, furthering not only the dumbing down of America but divisiveness along partisan lines. You are correct in noting it is like a train wreck but if a crew member is sabotaging the trip, do we blame the conductor or find the culprit? Neither according to your logic, we should just shout about them taking way our trains like the big boys we are. President Obama is no Genius but he has the smarts and courage to try and change what is broken so we can continue our trip, the obstructionists don’t they get paid just the same and even profit off insider info and fear mongering. That is why I laugh every time I read this tabloid but understand that to coordinate and function properly the left hand needs to know what the right is doing. You accuse Obama of what you call unfounded ideologies yet your reader’s comments exemplify the clinging to guns, religion and antipathetic stance toward any deviation of “normal”. As for your remedial course in history let’s compare and contrast the Republican party with a party that saw anything less than their definition of perfection as evil. No? how about modern history because I keep hearing how Obama is responsible for all debt obligations incurred before his 1st term but kept off the books till the 2009 budget. No? how about elitist is as elitist does, although President Obama is most certainly not against affluity he did try to reform the financial, oil and gun industry. Still not? How about your Ponzi scheme article that fails to take into consideration the financial bubble bath and obstruction repercussions on a macro scale. Last but not least Cruz sir please stop inciting a revolution I can assure you the South will never prevail, nor will they ever realize that the 1st,3rd,4th,5th and 10th are infringed upon by their right wing conspirators daily. Let us talk about who is really trying to destroy America through financial, political and corporative destabilization, from defunding the government through tax havens and deviations to the use of our Armies as invasive corporate takeovers. You can’t argue with ignorance because as long as you can make money off it, capitalists will to put it bluntly capitalize.

    • Ford

      Baser13……..your pious reply is so repulsive it really doesn’t deserve any comment. There is a pious ness there that equals that of (not our but) the sitting president. When the right gets enough of this crap of our constitution being infringed it’s people like you that will hang first. You my friend are enjoying the fruits that the tree of liberty has produced, but apparently have never nourished that tree by giving back and protecting it. You appear to be a narcissistic taker and haven’t a clue on how to give back. I feel really sorry for you.

  • baser13

    Ford that is true when I worked for the banks or as any “revolutionary” will tell you when I was excused from civil duty but it no longer applies. Moderates nowadays seem to be hated for speaking about the elephant in the room even if it’s next on the agenda. LMFAO pious? the real hypocrites are the givers who will never give the time of a day at no cost, the ones who justify every act with either law, scriptures, status quo or birthright. Trust me sir that if the right ever gets tired there will be a hardworking left to make up the difference, for you see we don’t wish what you do a defunct t government with a pious corporate takeover ensuing. Corporations and investors now pay less in taxes than the other 2/3 of tax revenues yet retain most of the wealth. Talk about takers, taking away every tax like luxury, estate and interest tax through “ingenious” schemes. Last but not least if I am to hang please speak the truth why I am to hang don’t try to blame others. Piousness really kind of like when we like to say Jesus died for our sins when in reality he died because extremist religious leaders had him prosecuted for talking out against them and their capitalist practices/abuses. Try again Ford for I am not easily intimidated nor silenced. As for Benghazi how about blaming ourselves because do you remember what happened in Boston or the subsequent news coverage and FBI statement on the reporting of unofficial information, in haste towards transparency they made some mistakes but none that could’ve prevented the tragedy. Here is the piousness on your party’s part, why is this investigation not blacked out like 9/11 or why can Obama not choose a childhood friend like old Bush. Obviously a lot of work needs to be done but bickering is not fruitful as you say and the low lying fruit is not as nutritious as you think nor is it only eaten by peasants as myself. Like I have said before maybe if the Republicans wouldn’t hold the nation hostage at the expense of the most affluent could the lower classes give back.hoarding wealth does not make you a giver it is the very definition of a taker, in case you didn’t know 1/5 of the families live paycheck to paycheck and have maxed out their credit lines just to try and give back towards the economy by purchasing goods but when you have the stock “wavy” funneling profits out and letting government infuse operational capital in you can say with tongue in cheek that I am a taker, BTW I was at Wamu and Citibank in 06′-08′ and well aware of the deregulation its past effects(S&L Crisis) and blatant ponzi schemes that were enabled. Maybe Obama just said “If you can’t beat them join them” or in his case no matter what he does he’s the bad guy since you tryand paint him as both a socialist and a fascist which concludes my rant about the hatred of moderates by extremists.

    • cnelson

      Your utopia sounds like it might be living in China where the redistribution of wealth leaves the people in poverty and the few at the top with lavish lifestyles.

  • cnelson

    Sounds like you might find your Utopian dreams fulfilled in China.

  • Trevor

    baser13, who do you think you are that the readers if such a post would read your full poorly written opinion and overblown response? The original comment you took offense at was simple and to the point. Try keeping each post to one coherent paragraph and you may find people respect your opinion; just don’t expect validation.
    Your right to free speech does not come with a promise that your opinions be valid or validated.

  • Trevor

    Jesus could have more than defended himself and not been subject to the cross and shame.

    He chose to obey his Father and allow His will to be done according to the scripture. That is WHY his blood can cover Our many sins in the eyes of God. Jesus loved us that much that he was willing to die for all repentant sinners. Unrepentant sinners will not be covered by his blood and will give account in the final judgment with Jesus as the measuring stick.

  • Jenell Stricker

    I agree with you wholeheartedly! His only intent is to ruin the United States and He will succeed because God has taken His hand off of America!

  • Trevor

    Republicans aren’t holding anyone or anything hostage. Most of them are almost as liberal and at fault as the Democrats.

    Baser, if you’re so intimate with the deregulation of banks can you tell us whose idea it was and what the purpose of such regulation was supposed to accomplish?
    It’s kind of rhetorical though because it was pious liberal policies with publicly stated well intentions resulting in even more consolidation of power for the government.
    Maybe that’s a view that’s too macro for your nano macro mindset.

  • Trevor

    The real hypocrites are those that don’t sit down and plan a budget they can live with then claim that those that do (control their money) aren’t sharing enough.

    Obama is a black man and you can never get it out of him. He hates America and even tho he’s been to all the best colleges, his racism shows every time he speaks. He is doing exactly what he wanted to do…destroy our country and get everyone on welfare and then he can rule like the king he thimks he is. We need to impeach him.

  • gwenwitham

    “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. ” Your motives are questionable at best. Your racism is poorly veiled. You should be ashamed of yourself, but your super-sized ego won’t allow that.

    • Trevor

      no one is talking about stoning anyone to death. Besides racism is not a sin. Execising poor judgement is clearly foolish and the bible talks a lot about walking circumspectly… with your eyes up and looking around. Don’t blindly follow those that are themselves blindly following just because they like the sound of their own agenda.
      By the way racism is sometimes confused with elitism/class envy. Envy and jealousy are sinful as is lusting after the riches of others… kinda sounds like Obama to me too.
