Obama Is Spoiled Rotten

Obama Is Spoiled Rotten
OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE PHOTO BY PETE SOUZA

“Spare the rod, spoil the child.” – Samuel Butler

Last week, Vanity Fair published an adaptation of Zev Chafets’ biography of FOX News President Roger Ailes, in which Ailes described President Barack Obama as “lazy.”

Ailes may be correct in saying that Obama “never worked a day in his life.” Yet I do not believe that the President is lazy. I think Obama was spoiled rotten by his mother and her parents and that he has continued to be spoiled rotten by overly adoring liberals.

The real Obama clearly expressed himself in 2008 when he became exasperated by reporters after a news conference: “Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions.”

Sorry, Obama, for thinking it was anyone’s job to ask you questions.

Obama is the last person in the room to be sorry about anything. (There is plenty to be learned about Obama in Richard Minter’s recent book Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him.)

According to White House records, the President was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Aug. 4, 1961. That makes him a member of Generation X, those born between 1960 and 1984.

What makes many of that generation so special is that they are born to baby boomers, who rejected raising their children the way generations of Americans had raised theirs. The baby boom went bust when they overindulged and spoiled their kids.

Raised by a single mother who was taking college classes, our 44th President had zero contact with his father. Instead, he found himself with his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, who was “finding herself” while traveling the world and continually going to college. When he was 10, Obama’s mother left him with his doting maternal grandparents.

Obama was not spoiled by money but by attention and adulation. One of only a handful of black kids at his high school in Hawaii, he was given extra merit for his intelligence. It seems clear that his grandparents, teachers and fellow students fawned over him, giving him an exaggerated sense of self.

Social scientists say that our basic personality is shaped at an early age. I have found that to be true. If we turn out to be kindhearted, industrious or insolent at 50, our behavior is cemented at a young age. In this regard Obama exhibits the personality of the peevish boy that he was while growing up.

On Jan. 27, New Republic published an interview with Obama.

One question asked was:

It seems as if you’re relying more on executive orders to get around these problems. You’ve done it for gun control, for immigration. Has your view on executive authority changed now that you’ve been president for four years?

Obama responded:

[T]here are certain issues where a judicious use of executive power can move the argument forward or solve problems that are of immediate-enough import that we can’t afford not to do it. And today, just to take an example, the notion that we wouldn’t be collecting information on gun violence just to understand how it happens, why it happens, what might reduce it–that makes no sense. …

Clearly, Obama sees things his way: the way a 5-year-old sees a Tonka truck.

The Telegraph summed up Obama’s leadership qualities:

President Obama sees his re-election as a mandate to continue the very policies that will eventually bankrupt the country unless they are reversed, regardless of huge opposition on Capitol Hill. It chimes closely with the president’s second inaugural address…, which offered absolutely no olive branches to the nearly 61 million Americans who voted for his opponent in November.

It wouldn’t be hard to fill a book on Obama’s self-centeredness. When Neil Armstrong died in August, the President posted a picture of himself looking up at the moon. What should have been a President talking about the greatness of an American hero became another self-aggrandizing moment by Obama.

How Dr. Spock Ruined America

I will wager that Obama never got a spanking. His upbringing is the kind that is on constant display; the baby boomers of my age were bound and determined to never use discipline on their children. Instead, they praised their children as being “special.” When those kids acted up, they begged and pleaded with them to be good.

I was hardly “Father Knows Best.” Most of the credit for the way our children turned out goes to their mother. But I won’t shy away from the fact that I did administer spankings to our kids on rare occasions, just as my parents did with me and my siblings.

Today, our children are 25, 28 and 30 years old. They all have good jobs, live independently and, in their adult years, have thanked me for the discipline they got.

What earned a spanking? A clear example was our eldest. When he was 4 we took him to the Seattle Zoo. As we got to our car, he got this strange look on his face and immediately bolted into traffic. I yelled, “Stop!” He kept going and reached a lane where there was an oncoming car approaching at 30 mph. The fact that I was then young saved his life.

When pregnant with that child my wife read what millions of baby boomers read: Baby and Child Care by Benjamin Spock, M.D.

If you ever thought Spock was a plethora of knowledge, think again. In 1989, while revising that book, he wrote: “I visited a small private school… with the idea of asking children… what advice to parents they’d like me to incorporate in the forthcoming revision of Baby and Child Care. … In a thoughtful mood, the class was unanimous that parents should not hit their children.”

I am shocked! What is next: recruits in the Marine Corp will say they don’t like PT?

Look around and you can see bratty behavior on display. (Shopping malls come to mind.) And kids don’t grow out of it. I have a friend that consults for a college football team. He tells me that sometimes parents call up the head coach at the university and question him as to why their son isn’t playing more.

There was a CBC TV documentary two years ago about post-baby boomers. It included a segment where parents phoned bosses of their 20-something children to complain that Johnny and Sally were not being treated fairly at work. The program concluded that spoiling children took off with Generation X.

Obama is not the only one in government who was spoiled. The ranks of Congress are also becoming filled with the overindulged and pampered prodigy of the baby boomer generation.

In today’s Congress, there are 115 members who belong to Generation X. While the average age of Congress is high by historical standards, its ranks are being filled by people who did not suffer events like the Great Depression and World War II. I don’t doubt that most of these members are intelligent and capable. I doubt many of them faced much hardship or discipline. They continue to demonstrate that they simply can’t “play nice” with others.

Yours in good times and bad,

    U.S..of America = Illinois State:

    “Illinois, which has the worst-funded state pension system in the United States, has agreed to settle federal civil securities fraud charges alleging it repeatedly misled municipal bond investors about the underfunding of its pensions, the Securities and Exchange Commission said.

    Illinois neither admitted nor denied the charges and was not ordered to pay a penalty. It agreed to change its practices to more fully disclose risks to bond investors, the SEC said Monday.

    The settlement of charges that Illinois failed from 2005 to early 2009 to fully tell investors the risks of buying $2.2 billion worth of its municipal bonds is the latest blow to the state’s reputation as fiscally troubled and crippled by a pension shortfall of $98.6 billion.”

      When the “wisconsin democrat” took cover in ILL with their “brethren”, during Scott Walker’s ASSAULT on their “monopoly game”, what “sound advice” do you think they acquired during their visit? And the “dolts” selected “their leader” from this “fertile” proving ground of corrupt “progressive” politicians. Bankrupted states, bankrupted nations, anyone see a pattern or is it just more of “What does it matter at this point!”? Heads – barak, tails – hillary. Both sides of the coin = Private Sector Loses.

      • Sirian

        Warrior,
        Agreed, Private Sector loses big time. In reality you can’t trust either side anymore.

      • nc

        Warrior, if you believe there is a PRIVATE SECTOR, then I presume it was created at some point and there are figures (numbers) that define it! Like jobs that result in income that results in more revenues BUT ALSO results in better life styles and more opportunities for the people included within it’s place in the economy!

        The Reagan and Clinton years seem to have the best numbers for that particular SECTOR in the last 80 years or so! What killed it’s growth and when did it start! What are the figures today as compare to say January 20, 2009?

        Do you think anyone can look at the “figures” and say “worse” with any degree of believability?? What will they use for numbers to back their argument? The national debt? What part of that did the present administration create! if you have a truck( the economy) and you need it to run your business today AND EVERYDAY BUT IT IS BROKEN LIKE IT WAS ON JAN. 20, 2009. YOU HAVE TO SPEND MONEY TO GET IT FIXED! EVEN bush TRIED WITH THE STIMULUS MONEY HE BEGGED THE DEMOCRATS FOR!!

        WALL STREET LOVES THE DEMOCRATS AND IT’S THE HOME BASE OF THE PRIVATE SECTOR!!!!! DOING PRETTY GOOD AT THE MOMENT! IT’S GOTTA BE SOMETHING IN THE WATER BECAUSE OBAMA IS NOT THAT GOOD!!!!!

        OR IS HE REALLY THAT GOOD?? ONE THING IS FOR SURE!! HE IS NOT bush BAD!!!

      • Don 2

        nc,

        And Bush has publicly stated that he regrets the stimulus.

    • James

      I hope everybody feels much safer, since Obama has appointed two Devout Muslims to US Department of Homeland Security!!!! You would think people would get smarter. These are the people that want to kills us and call us infidils. People had better wake up. He seems to get his way in everything. This is dangerous!!!

      • VMS

        I am in my 80′s and have been fortunate to know America when it was looked upon by most people as the best country in the world. Bar none!!
        What has happened was caused by putting too much faith in thinking that ALL countries are equal and we must allow all immigrants to enter our boarders. persons who really don’t care about our language or our way of life. they really only want our benefits. In other words they are takers and are not interested in giving back.

        • kathy

          Kudos to you VMS from The Greatest Generation and you also James. Good posts. You have Values and so do many on this forum. The Trolls should really go somewhere else.

  • Harold Olsen

    Barack Hussein Obama is lazy. He is also a whining little crybaby.

    • Jeff

      Such a well-reasoned post. Are you too lazy to put together enough words to make a point? Better go pick up your welfare check so you can go to the Liquor Store tonight!

  • Doc Sarvis

    I can think of VERY few Presidents who were not spoiled in some way. It seems almost a prerequisite. His Republican opponenet, Romney, was spoiled in every way imaginable and was a baby boomer himself. It is a fact of time moving forward that we eventually would be electing a number of baby boomers, get used to it.

    The use of Executive Orders is not uniqe to President Obama either. The fact that Congress will not lead this country practically obligates the President to uphold his end of the bargin and do what he can to lead. To NOT govern would be lazy. President Obama is an active, smart, American leader re-elected with a strong majority of Americans who saw his ideas, results, and work ethic through his first term (and his life) and who knew that we need his continued leadership for the next four years.

    • Warrior

      Doc says -

      “To NOT govern would be lazy. President Obama is an active, smart, American leader re-elected with a strong majority of Americans who saw his ideas, results, and work ethic through his first term (and his life) and who knew that we need his continued leadership for the next four years”

      Doc, did you receive a ride in nc’s “bus” last election? Where do you copy your scripts from? Come on, throw me some links! I’m in the mood for some more entertaining “chuckles”.

    • rendarsmith

      Blaming Bush for all his problems and accepting no responsibility for anything isn’t leading Doc.

      • nc

        rendersmith, you have no qualms pointing out Obama and liberal shortcomings! Will you give us your “take” on why the stock market fell so drastically during last year and a half of the bush years? Why we were losing 2.6 million or so jobs in the year BEFORE Obama? Why the Iraq war got so unpopular IT,along with the state of the economy , cost the “bush people” control of Congress? The years from 2001-2008 did happen and the numbers WERE changing for the worse!

        DO YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO BELLY UP FOR THE NON Obama SIDE AND TAKE SOME BLAME AND EXPLAIN HOW AMERICA GOT TO WHERE IT WAS ON JANUARY 20, 2009?
        ps: EVEN IT YOU TAKE THE OLD DODGE THAT YOU ARE NOT A REPUBULICAN EITHER, IF YOU “KNOW” ENOUGH TO BLAME OBAMA YOU SHOULD KNOW’ ENOUGH TO JUDGE THE REPUBLICANS?

    • Anastasia Beaverhouser

      what leadership DOC? you need to watch what he does, not what he says….the man is a liar, can’t take the blame for ANYTHING! complete WUSS!

    • Hedgehog

      Doc Sarvis: approximately 63 million Americans voted against Obma in the last election. In some states the vote count was as high as 120% of the electorate for Obama. Eeeehhh, what’s up Doc?

      • Doc Sarvis

        120%? What states were those?

        • Bob666

          Yo Doc,
          Hint-It’s not a state of sanity.

      Most Americans, including Doc, seemingly have no clue about any major distructive psychiatric realities of one individual who most obviously is living what Eric Fromm- a major 20th century psychiatrist-says about malignant pychopaths : ” malignant narcisissm is the quentescence of evil”- which apparently means Doc and millions of Americans do not have any idea what evil looks like when they see it! BHO is without doubt a psychopath who hates and desires to destroy America…..to him, an evil nation. Google Narcissism in American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. You still probably won’t see it because you damn well don’t want to or maybe his evil values are your values. Millions of Jews died at the hands of a pschopath worse than Obama, just differant methods…..little by little, right now.Oh and too, my prediction says before his term expires( if ever) that eventually and/or pretty soon we wiil learn and see Obama’s Mulim friends back in town by the droves. Those are his real motives….spend the money on capturing a new Islam who will live by tax paying Americans. You want to bet! God bless America!!

    • alpha-lemming

      A couple of quick observations/corrections….

      1) A MASSIVE ego is pretty much a prereq for POTUS. You’ve got to tell yourself daily…”The only thing wrong with this ol’ world is I’m not drivin”.

      2) Executive orders are not unique to Chairman ObaMa(o), but the number EOs and the geometric expansion of the executive branch are.

      3) 3% is not a strong majority in anyones book.

      • Jeff

        Excuse me. In 2000, W LOST the popular vote. Nevertheless, he acted like he had a mandate to do as he pleased. Those idiotic tax cuts he pushed through were not very popular at the time. And that Veep Creep Cheney acted like his decisions were beyond questioning. If any administration has been dictatorial, it was that one. They LIED us into a trillion dollar war. Now, the same Repugs tell us we can’t afford medical care for our citizens. If we had President McCain or Romney, you wouldn’t hear one word about deficit reduction. To the Repugs, deficits don’t matter unless a democrat is in the White House.

      • alpha-lemming

        Sorry…. wrong again… yet…. still…. regularly. 43 was quite timid initially, adopting at the time what was known as the ABC policy… “Anything But Clinton”…. He didn’t really “cowboy-up” until after 9-11 at which point you can argue if it was/wasn’t justified. After the ’04 elections…. certainly more decisive than this last go ’round….. he publicly stated he had a mandate….. the ’06 mid-terms returned legislative control to the Commu…. er I mean…. Dems, they spent us into oblivion and you/they have been trying to re-write history since…… does hat help refresh your memory??

        • Jeff

          I completely disagree except as to the ABC business. If Clinton did something intelligently, W was bound and determined to do it stupidly. Maybe if he’d gotten a few bjs in the Oval Office, he’d have been less of a dope.

    As the USA disintegrates from a controlled financial demolition, engineered environmental disasters, and medical malpractice that has needlessly cost the lives of millions, the debilitated residents of the United States — perhaps too late to save themselves — are painfully waking up to realize their country has been taken over by a foreign power.

    Their fortunes stolen by corrupt profiteers, their minds rotted by behavioral deceptions, and their children condemned to perpetual wars that never needed to happen, the shellshocked citizens of what was formerly known as the greatest country on Earth now face extermination and ruin because of the very lies they have been persuaded to accept.

    Their health poisoned by toxic medications, their property stolen by swindles that become illegal laws, and their futures erased by harmful addictions perceived as their own desires, the imminent destruction of America presages a worldwide catastrophe already well under way that foreshadows the extinction of all natural life on this planet.

    As the trees turn brown and the oceans congeal into toxic jelly, the blame for this unprecedented cataclysmic crisis in all its myriad manifestations inevitably tracks to the same source — the people who control the money and continue to poison everything they touch.

    The United States of America has not been run by Americans for a very long time, if ever.

    A half-black Jew who changed his name to Alexander Hamilton derailed the experiment in participatory democracy at the very birth of the American republic. Chief aide to George Washington during the Revolutionary War, it was Hamilton who spearheaded the creation of a central bank that forever would prevent freedom-seeking European colonists from achieving their idealistic goals of liberty and happiness.

    A little more than a century later, the mass influx of Russian Jews disingenuously claiming persecution in their homeland descended on the USA by the millions, and through their corruption of the political process and the imposition of a colossal scam that allowed them to charge Americans for their own money, began the downward slide into deception and disease from which the U.S. would never recover.

    This same strategy today of uncontrolled immigration has collapsed a functional American infrastructure into a meaningless morass of overburdened social services that has changed the very ethos of the USA from principled self-reliance into a degraded dependence on free lunches and stealthy swindling that has left the populace suffocating from its own corrupt opportunism.

    Every day at any hour, you can prove to yourself that America is not run by Americans just by watching television, or searching in any medium for any meaningful explanation of how the great experiment in democracy has been destroyed. You won’t find it. You will only find advertisements for needless products of dubious value and deliberately misleading statements about what is actually happening to you.

    All propagated by the same cynical source, the same insincere voices passionate in their advocacy of the very policies that have destroyed everything humans have ever held dear.

    Jewish TV networks, Jewish Hollywood, Jewish magazines, Jewish control of Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court, Jewish control of universities and the American Federation of Teachers, Jewish control of the American Medical Association and the American Bar Association, American cops training to kill in Israel, everyone in America being afraid to speak out about Jews for fear of losing their jobs, AIPAC and the ADL advocating prison terms for those who protest Israel’s continuing crimes against humanity, Christian denominations worried about their tax-exempt status fearful of commenting on Jewish atrocities, Monsanto (once slave traders, then weapons makers, and now in control of world’s food supply) peddling poisons, and Jewish control of the Internet through Google, Wikipedia and control of the chokepoints of ISPs and wireless networks — all conspire to terrify the American populace into fearful silence even as they are being sickened and terminated by this twisted Talmudic terror.

    The bogus bogeyman of terrorism constantly seared into American consciousness by hysterical kosher commentators demanding citizens give up their freedoms in exchange for security that benefits no one except the very rich was — in fact — actually created by the very same psychopaths who devise and deploy the hired enemies, and profit from their weapons contracts as they maim and murder gullible goyim victims all over the world.

    And still, the vast majority of Americans, deluded by their drugged dreams, refuse to name their own killers, even as they slowly die their unnecessary and premature deaths, or mistakenly blame some group of fellow victims as the cause of their demise.

    The world’s science establishment has been cowed into subservience by the financial tricks that limit the scope of their thinking and misdirect their investigations.

    The world’s artists — particularly songwriters — are intimidated into silence about the real culprits as they create the false lyrics to our morose predicament and bask in the misguided adulation of their own learning-disabled groupies.

    Everybody in the world is coerced into betraying their own principles in order to make the almighty buck, never fully realizing that this is the very cause of society’s terminal disease.

    Meanwhile, the Jews sit back and count the money they have stolen from both sides of every conflict — conflicts they have conceived, fomented and profited mightily from the disease and death they have caused.

    Even at this late date, America’s so-called intellegensia refuse to factor in the Jewish problem as the core reason for virtually all of society’s ailments, lest they jeopardize their professional reputations and personal profits.

    And in apprehensive silence, they watch with their fingers fruitlessly crossed as the Talmudic formula for conscienceless rape and pillage strangles the American dream into its final chapter of permanent unconsciousness, and endless, silent night.

      WTF? You’ve got a real thing about Jews. We have real problems that are simpler to explain that some exotic conspiracy involving Jews.

      We’re spending too much money. The problem is that it’s money we don’t have. We have a government that is growing like a stage IV cancer and choking the life out of us with laws, regulations, and demands for ever more money.

      I completely agree that the central bank has turned into a self-serving institution in a symbiotic relationship with the treasury. It’s out of control and must be reigned in if we are to maintain the value of the dollar. In essence, much of our government spending is coming from our savings and that of our children and their children … through dilution of the value of the dollar. This is immoral and *evil*.

      Leave the Jews and blacks out of it. The real problem is the unchecked growth of our government.

      • gumby

        In the problem of rent seeking as opposed to profit seeking driving our modern economy it is too easy to make Jews and blacks a target of misinformation and hate.

        In addition to being nutty, you are incredibly dense. My point was that Ryan only separated himself from other Ayn Rand acolytes when he “discovered” she was an atheist. That part is true except he always knew she was an atheist. The “Jewish” part was gratuitous, but for many of Ryan’s right wing followers, the fact he followed a Jewish atheist might hurt his popularity. Given Ayn Rand’s incredibly odious philosophy, the fact she was an atheist was the least objectionable thing about her – except to Paul Ryan. It’s called sarcasm, you Dunderhead!

          For me I believe that Gods Will of divine prominence is the guiding presence that enables the Free Thinking Mind to persevere in the face of a Ideological Oppression that humanity now has endured since the being of its time here .

        Just another fairy tale tony…….no matter what you say or how many times you

        The only remaining question regarding the scientific theory of evolution
        is the precise mechanism of “natural selection”…….

        Of course, since we have the ability to manipulate genetic material at this level
        already, the question is actually irrelevant……

    Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general.
    This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership.
    He hadn’t even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon.
    So he is made the “Beloved Leader” Of North Korea.
    Terrific!-

    But Oh Crap!
    I just remembered that we did the same thing.
    We took an arrogant bastard community organizer, who had never worn a uniform, and made him Commander-in-Chief.
    A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and we made him “Beloved Leader” of the United States
    TWICE !!!

    What have we become?

    • Jeff

      I’m sure you said the same of Reagan and your real hero W. Neither knew anything. Reagan had a little horse sense, just enough to know the difference between rhetoric and governing. W had no sense at all. Talk about privilege and an absent father! W thought he was entitled to be President because his name was Bush although history will remember him as George W. Hoover. You right wing loons represent the tiniest sliver of American opinion and for good reason. Want to analyze someone? Try analyzing yourself to determine what made you so nutty politically speaking. As far as I can tell, Kim Jung Un has far more in common with W than any American politician I can think of.

      Myers can’t stand that he’s a nobody and Obama, his obvious inferior (He’s Black, you know.), is president. Somebody turned his world upside down. I think Mr. Myers was raised by a mother who repeatedly told him how brilliant he was. She lied.

        Jeff says ; “As far as I can tell, Kim Jung Un has far more in common with W than any American politician I can think of “.

        • Jeff

          I am troubled by the whole drone program and would like to see it severely circumscribed, but I fail to see what that has to do with this discussion over who is “spoiled.” One grows up with every privilege imaginable. The other grows up with a single mother, an absent father and raised by his grandparents and HE’s the spoiled elitist? Myers must be a failed SNL writer.

          • tony newbill

            Jeff , there are 2 kinds of spoiled , those who never had the same level of material positions but were never taught the understanding of self reliance but rather looked at the material that others had and thought it was unfair that this inequality was depriving them of their fair share instead of thinking about duplicating what that person did to achieve that level of equality is why we are not seeing leadership in Government today that writes economic policies that enable economic supply-side expansion that reaches a great number of those who make the effort to create a contributing product or service to society .
            And we see a Policy like trade that makes sure we the people have a level playing field in our domestic market that stops the Dumping of Manipulated Cheaper product dumping in our Nation thats wiping out our sovereignty of economic value and is only benefiting the Multi nationalists as the take advantage of a simple currency sway on the products the import . This does nothing for true economic value built off a Higher quality of Product being the way its valued .

    I remember as a young kid when we would complain about unfairness because our parents would say no or punish us with a spanking as needed, my grand parents would share stories of hardship from the Great Depression and the scary moments of war time during WWII. I have often said that is the problem with today’s youngsters. They have no one left in their immediate family that experience these real hard times to be able to share and connect them in a sence to real hardship. America is too far out of touch with hardships. Yes many of us have shared hard times over these past few years, but nothing compared to the hardships shared by families during WWI, through the Great Depression, and WWII. Now adays everyone has a TV in every room of their home with multiple channels, computers, and smart phones. We live in largely different times than our parents, their parents and our great grand parents lived. Without these devices in our lives we would have felt the hardship much great through these dreadful times we have experienced over the past decade. Not sure if we are better off or worse. Are these devices god sent or the devil in disguise?

    Mr. Myers…it’s obvious you never went for higher degrees than maybe undergrad. Harvard Law and becoming Editor of the Harvard law review. Anyone who has garnered a law degree from a reputable law school knows the unwritten rule is “sleep is a waste of time’.

    Pulling oneself from poverty, fatherless, going to undergrad, law school, eitor of the law review, US Senator, the President of the United States 9twice elected by a solid majoity of the voters)… that is not lazy nor is it a failure to lead.

      I have always assumed that Barack Hussein Obama paid for his law school in the manner most students do, by taking out loans. Not so, reports Kenneth R. Timmerman. In his autobiography he describes the qualms he had about leaving “his people” to go to Harvard and better himself. Apparently he did more than that. He used his community organizing ties to raise funds to finance his expensive legal education. His good fairy was a Muslim radical named Dr. Khalid al Mansour. A lawyer with close ties to Saudi princes. As they were not sure Obama can get in on his own merits, Mansour got Percy Sutton to write letters to all his Harvard buddies.

      In other words, Dr. Khalid al Mansour financed Obama’s education in the same manner he financed his house, with a little help from his unsavory friends who also happened to be Muslims. But why are they so “helpful?”

        Who is the “mystery man” former Manhattan Borough Chairman Percy Sutton named as having aided Barack Obama financially at Harvard Law School?

        Signs of al-Mansour’s work exists in Malaysia, Brazil, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, and spans four decades in the United States, Newsmax discovered while scouring hundreds of sources for the story it reported on the revelations Wednesday.

        His life story could have been written as a Horatio Alger-style rise from rags to riches. He sees himself as something of the “return of Antar,” a mythical black poet-warrior of pre-Islamic times. His real-life exploits range from a surprise one-on-one meeting with the prime minister of India as a college student to mentoring Black Panthers’ founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale in the early 1960s.

        Valerie Jarrett’s Father-In-Law Reveals Start Of Muslim Purchase Of U.S. Presidency…
        Bombshell Obama Vetting: 1979 Newspaper Article By Valerie Jarrett’s Father-In-Law Reveals Start Of Muslim Purchase Of U.S. Presidency…

        Why would Muslim oil billionaires finance and develop controlling relationships with black college students? Well, like anyone else, they would do it for self-interest.

        And what would their self-interest be? We all know the top two answers to that question: 1. a Palestinian state and 2. the advancement of Islam in America.

        The idea then was to advance blacks who would facilitate these two goals to positions of power in the Federal government, preferably, of course, the Presidency.

        And why would the Arabs target blacks in particular for this job? Well, for the same reason the early communists chose them as their vanguard for revolution (which literally means “change”) in America. Allow me to quote Trotsky, in 1939: “The American Negroes, for centuries the most oppressed section of American society and the most discriminated against, are potentially the most revolutionary element of the population. They are designated by their historical past to be, under adequate leadership, the very vanguard of the proletarian revolution.”

        Substitute the word “Islam” for the words “the proletarian revolution,” and you most clearly get the picture, as Islam is a revolutionary movement just like communism is. (Trivia: it is from this very quote that communist Van Jones takes his name. Van is short for vanguard. He was born “Anthony”). In addition, long before 1979, blacks had become the vanguard of the spread of Islam in America, especially in prisons.

        Interestingly, in context with the fact that this article was written by her father-in-law, Valerie Jarrett has an unusual amount of influence over Obama (along with personal security that may be even better than his, another unusual and intriguing bit of business here). And equally interesting is that Obama, who may have been a beneficiary of this Muslim money, and may now be in this Muslim debt, has aggressively pursued both of the Muslim agendas I cited above. And, also equally interesting, is that Obama has paid a king’s ransom for court ordered seals of any such records of this potential financing of his college education, and perhaps, of other of his expenses.

    • Frank Kahn

      What is extreme is determined by the view of the person observing. Everything you say is extremist from my point of view. When you accuse someone of extreme right wing views, it is an indication of bias on your part.

      One of your posts, above, had the statement that many of the provisions of obamacare, that have taken effect are valuable and supported by many. Since you make a grandiose claim, without specifics, this is proof by bald assertion. You also make the claim that obamacare does, in some way, provide things needed by the elderly. What are those things you talk about? Why do you claim that these things are not available to them without obamacare? You claim that obamacare is not disastrously expensive. On what set of cost analysis do you base this claim? Your statements there are extremist in the fact that they support something without proof being given as to the veracity of the statements.

      in this post you said:

      “Pulling oneself from poverty, fatherless, going to undergrad, law school, eitor of the law review, US Senator, the President of the United States 9twice elected by a solid majoity of the voters)… that is not lazy nor is it a failure to lead.”

      We might have a different definition of the word leadership. Assuming that Obama had no help lifting himself up from poverty, the first 4 are examples of self motivation not leadership. Getting elected, to either the senate, or President are examples of political campaign ability, not leadership. Although the campaign process needs leadership, we would need to ascertain to whom this role fell. A true test of leadership comes in the performance of his duties in the positions for which he was elected. As a senator, what projects and or agenda’s did Obama participate in which required him to lead? As President, what items of his agenda did he use strong leadership to accomplish? What great leadership ability has he employed to bring our nation together as a unified people? What great leadership abilities did he use when he destroyed our international reputation? Leadership is the ability to bring people together for a common good. It is not using force or fiat to make people do what you want.

      “That you accept extremist viewpoints as reasonable, that you are judgmental of someone based upon hatred and wanting to denigrate because it makes you feel more self worthy. that’s your issues you have to deal with.”

      Define hatred. I dont like Obama’s policies, does that mean I hate him? If I say he is a racist, and give examples that support my contention, is that denigrating him? If I say he is lying and / or delusional if he thinks more taxes will solve the budget problem, am I denigrating him?

      “Try rational, reasonable thought once in awhile. It’s better than the rejections you must face day after day when you open your mouth and people begin to realize who and what you are…”

      Rational and reasonable thought is used by people on both sides of the Obama controversy. To imply that yours is more rational and reasonable than ours is delusional. It appears that your opinion is that Obama is a great leader, who has done many wonderful things for our country. I say you are wrong. I can only judge the effects of his policies and actions by what I see where I live. What I see here says that people who say the economy is growing are lying. The housing industry is still as devastated as it was 5 years ago. There are no new housing starts, there is no resurgence in home purchases. There are no new jobs being created. The number of unemployed has not been reduced. These are facts, where I live, and those facts say that Obama is a failure. His economic policies have done nothing to improve our standard of living.

      • Jeff

        Frank, I appreciate that you don’t use expletives and maintain a civil demeanor for the most part, but your posts are as predictable as can be. If there’s an anti-Obama angle available, you’ll find it. Clearly, most people disagree. That makes your views objectively right wing. I remember someone saying something similar about the opinions of Justice Cardozo. There’s a certain inevitability to the outcome and you can set it to Beethoven. While it may not flow from the premises, the conclusion is inevitable.

        • Frank Kahn

          My opinions are reasonable and rational. They follow logic and fact, I challenged assertions that were not supported by facts. Right wing has nothing to do with the fact that Obama is a failed President. His policies suck period.

          • Jeff

            Pure fact. Just like Spock. No opinion at all. Reminds me of Dick Cheney. There is no doubt . . . . (Everything that follows is pure hogwash).

          • Frank Kahn

            DON’T MISQUOTE STAR TREK, SPOCK WAS PURE LOGIC NOT FACT. You might confuse the two, since logic is usually based on facts.

            FACT: NOTHING OBAMA HAS DONE HAS IMPROVED ANYTHING HERE (where I live).
            FACT: OBAMA REFUSES TO WORK ON REASONABLE SOLUTIONS
            FACT: OBAMA INSISTS THAT WHAT HE WANTS IS WHAT HAS TO BE DONE
            FACT: OBAMA FAILED TO FULFILL MOST OF HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISES
            FACT: OBAMA LIES ON A CONTINUAL BASIS
            FACT: OBAMA IS RESPONSIBLE FOR NEW EXPENDITURES IN WAR TYPE AGGRESSION
            FACT: OBAMA KILLS INNOCENT CIVILIAN FOREIGN NATIONALS
            FACT: OBAMA PROMOTES AND INSTITUTES RACIST POLICIES
            FACT: OBAMA BLAMES EVERYTHING THAT GOES WRONG ON SOMEONE ELSE
            FACT: OBAMA PUT MORE EMPHASIS ON THE NOT SO AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT THAN HE DID THE ECONOMY

            All of those are facts, verifiable to be true. Based on those facts, Obama has failed as a President because his policies, and lack of leadership, have failed to improve the living standards of the citizens of this country.

            If you disagree with one or more of the FACTS, please feel free to object and provide proof that it is incorrect.

      Obamacare and those who support the policy when it was not even read , not understood because it was not a finished set of rules means that it was mostly a Bill to produce a Egotistical Outcome more than anything else !!!!!

        Tony…please let us know how the most recent Ryan Plan assumes the savings and the revenues of Obamacare if such is not what Obamacare provides. You can also detail how those savings and revenues are included in his Plan…yet he calls for eliminating it (thus wiping out the very assumptions his plan relies on)

        There is no way Obamacare will be eliminated, and it has a strong support in the polls, and more and more people are realizing the benefits as they kick in during the phased implementation. Just what part of Obamacare would you keep? Carefull as you stumble around trying to figure it out. There’s a lot of what has kicked in that is VERY popular and needed..

        • tony newbill

          I would design a healthcare insurance system that pays a subsidy to the policy holders premiums for achieving a goal of healthy living standards monitored through the basic checkups that we do , to keep track of those conditions and make sure a person was Rewarded for those achievements like a Job .
          This would Lower the overall costs of healthcare because it would reduce the rate of disease that create demand on healthcare needs … the old supply-demand factor Flashy could have been implemented here but the ego was the goal more than common sense logic .

      • Flashy

        Tony…supply side doesn’t work. it definitely will ot work in a “captive’ industry such as health care. I like your idea…worthy of thought and consideration. But as i view it, only bringing in outside competition, or breaking up the oligarchy we now have in health care, is the better option. Currently, you have the triad of insurance, hospitals, doctors. There is absolutely no incentive to lower costs. Health care insurance is a needed necessity in today’s world. It is not subject to supply and demand except when the consumer is so tight in budget, they begin to forego it….thus increasing our costs because of the unpaid medical bills in the E room etc.

        If there was a public option…setting minimal health care, and giving doctors the option. Staying 100% private, or accepting public health patients without restricting the numbers, and insurance companies either offering the same minimal package as well as “riders’ to increase coverage.

        Please show the law which states doctors are entitled to high seven figure incomes. Please show the law stating hospitals can charge 435 for an aspirin (yes..last bill I received had that as a cost charged).

        It’s like energy…people need it and are a captive market open to be bled dry.

        Why do you insinuate that I am a Bush fan? Far from it. However, I don’t recall ever seeing a photo of Bush bowing to and/or kissing the king of saudi arabia’s ring. I seriously doubt the veracity of that. As far as holding the king’s hand, it was pointed out in the lame stream media that Bush did that because the king is so elderly, and also because it is a custom for boys and men to hold hands in that country. It is a symbol of friendship for men and boys to hold hands in that country. I know that is a fact because my late husband and I lived in Riyadh for three years. We used to see young teen boys and men of all ages in the mall there walking around holding hands.

        Barak Obama is a muslim, no matter what he or anyone else says. It is a fact that he attended an islamic school in Indonesia as his step-father was a muslim. Indonesia has a huge population of muslims. Only a muslim would bow to the king of saudi arabia, which is the most islamic country on earth. Do some homework and check your facts.

        George Bush’s grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

        The Guardian obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

        His business dealings, which continued until his company’s assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.

        The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that the late senator’s action should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

        The debate over Prescott Bush’s behaviour has been bubbling under the surface for some time. There has been a steady internet chatter about the “Bush/Nazi” connection, much of it inaccurate and unfair. But the new documents, many of which were declassified 2003, show that even after America had entered the war and when there was already significant information about the Nazis’ plans and policies, he worked for and profited from companies closely involved with the very German businesses that financed Hitler’s rise to power. It has also been suggested that the money he made from these dealings helped to establish the Bush family fortune and set up its political dynasty…

      Kill Anything That Moves
      The Real American War in Vietnam

      By Nick Turse

      (Metropolitan; 370 pages; $30)
      In early 1971, the New York Times Book Review splashed its cover with the question “Should We Have War Crimes Trials?” American perceptions of the war in Vietnam were at a sort of tipping point, and the military was nervous. A retired general and respected prosecutor at Nuremberg argued in the Times and on “The Dick Cavett Show” that Gen. William Westmoreland might be guilty of war crimes. “[O]ur army that now remains in Vietnam,” a colonel wrote at the time, “is in a state approaching collapse, with individual units avoiding or having refused combat, murdering their officers … drug-ridden, and dispirited where not near-mutinous.”

      As Nick Turse tells it in his indispensable new history of the war, challenges to the military’s perceptions of the conflict, which it pretended to be winning every day for years, started with Seymour Hersh’s groundbreaking account of the My Lai massacre. American soldiers murdered 500 Vietnamese civilians at My Lai in 1968, and after Hersh’s exposé, suddenly war crimes were a hot story. For a moment. But Turse insists that if the editors of Newsweek hadn’t “eviscerated” an article that described a much larger death toll in 1972, the wool wouldn’t still be pulled over Americans’ eyes.

      The problem, as described in Turse’s “Kill Anything That Moves,” is the tension between the “bad apples” argument – which sees atrocities in Vietnam as the exception – and the reality of the broader, official “American way of war.” Turse came to understand the latter after he stumbled onto documents of the Vietnam War Crimes Working Group. The military created the group after the My Lai massacre to avoid again being caught flat-footed.

      The point, Turse found, was not to prevent war crimes but to contain the damage and stay, as the euphemism might go today, ahead of the PR problem. Finding the cache of internal documents, Turse halted his academic thesis work, and lit out in his car to spend the next several days photocopying these documents. He rounded this out with interviews with more than 100 veterans, alongside those of eyewitnesses and survivors of American atrocities in Vietnam. His verdict – more than a decade later – is damning and masterful.

      Without knowing its name, Americans understand what a free-fire zone is. Presidents George W. Bush and Obama have essentially made large swaths of Pakistan into them. As Turse recounts, the practice seems to have originated in Vietnam (though no doubt there are earlier precedents in, for instance, the American wars against Indians).

      A free-fire zone in Vietnam, as American soldiers understood it, was where all inhabitants were deemed to be the enemy. They could therefore be killed at will (or raped, mutilated, kidnapped, tortured, used to find and explode land mines). Arbitrarily, too: for running as American soldiers approached, for wearing black, for having safety shelters under their houses, for merely being – all Vietnamese in these zones were fair game (the term used was VC, Viet Cong or Victor Charlie).

      The practice was so liberating of some soldiers’ latent sadism that, when questioned over the use of deadly force, some even insisted that nonofficial free-fire zones were free-fire zones. Likewise, obsession over the body count (in light of American racism and what soldiers called “the mere-gook rule”) also led to abuses. Turse finds in the documents that official policy held that if more “VC” could be killed than replaced, this would stand for “winning.” If you add to this the internal military survey of officers’ understanding of the Geneva Conventions, which found that more than 96 percent of Marine second lieutenants would torture at will to get information, then the “fog of war” comes into sharper focus.

      Seemingly for most of the war, Turse writes, the military largely ignored its own investigations into war crimes, ignored or downplayed the testimony of up-standers and whistle-blowers who spoke out for Vietnamese victims of American murders, rapes and massacres, and ignored huge numbers of “enemy” kills taken with no weapons, which had to be turned over to the military.

      The pressure for kills led officers like Julian Ewell to train his underlings in the no-risk, relatively sterile if brutal practice of killing from the air. Ewell repeatedly shouted things like, “Jack up that body count, or you’re gone, Colonel.” Ewell’s body-count binge in one of the most populated parts of the country, the Mekong Delta, was code-named Operation Speedy Express. It would culminate in a ratio of 134 KIAs (or killed in action) to every American soldier killed. The problem was that even according to the military’s own findings, and Ewell’s own soldiers, easily more than half of these thousands of KIAs were civilians.

      What it all amounted to – as Turse makes clear, and as reporters for Newsweek would find – was essentially an official policy of ongoing My Lais on a monthly, if not weekly (or more frequent) basis. By the time Newsweek ran its highly edited follow-up to the courageous Times Book Review piece, the U.S. military had mastered the art of intimidating whistle-blowers, of punishing rank-and-file soldiers in courts-martial but then unilaterally dismissing the charges, of abridging or trivializing punishments, and of disparaging honest reporters and whistle-blowers.

      In one case, the pressure seems to have led one honest military investigator, Maj. Carl Hensley, to suicide. “The whole Pentagon strategy centered on portraying My Lai as a one-off aberration, rather than part of a consistent pattern of criminality resulting from policies at the top.”

      “Kill Anything That Moves” is a paradigm-shifting, connect-the-dots history of American atrocities that reads like a thriller; it will convince those with the stomach to read it that all these decades later Americans, certainly the military brass and the White House, still haven’t drawn the right lesson from Vietnam – which was that billions were spent to wantonly slaughter as many as 2 million civilians, and that this slaughter was the official policy.

      “Whatever remains unconscious emerges later as fate,” wrote psychoanalyst Carl Jung. Given today’s killings from the air, whole zones made up of enemies who are enemies for simply living in a certain area, the impunity of it, Jung was clearly onto something.

            I could be wrong, but I do not believe he ever was ever in the military, which of course made him so successful as a secretary of defense.

          • Jeff

            He was born in 1932 so he’s a bit older than the Viet Nam generation. Apparently, he spent 3 years in the Navy after graduating from college in 1954.

        Mitt Romney supported the Vietnam war, however, Romney did not serve in Vietnam. As a Mormon missionary, he was considered “‘a minister of religion” by the church and was exempt from the draft. Convenient for Mitt, wasn’t it? Although he supported other kids going off to die in Vietnam, his religion required him to go live in a palace in France… of all the luck!

        He spent a significant portion of his 30-month mission in a Paris mansion described by fellow American missionaries to The Daily Telegraph as “palace”. It featured stained glass windows, chandeliers, and an extensive art collection. It was staffed by two servants – a Spanish chef and a houseboy. No doubt Romney wanted to go fight in the war he supported so much that he graciously offered his expert media services to the anti-anti-war protesters, but, tragically, he had to oversee his servants in his Parisian palace. And then he had so much studying to do…

        Before and after his missionary deferment, Romney also received nearly three years of deferments for his academic studies. Don’t you just hate it when your studies get in the way of fighting in a war? Poor Dick Cheney had that same problem.

As well as, the Obama-man…not that serving in the military, at least under the banner of “imperialism”, could be viewed as performing a service for one’s country, is concerned. War, as you may well be aware of, at least i hope so, is a racket…a very lucrative racket; where only the perpetrators/engineers of war’s profit immensely! All wars are but for the profit of a very few.

    “That makes him a member of Generation X, those born between 1960 and 1984.”

    I wish everyone would get their story straight concerning the generations. By every account I’ve read, Boomers were from 1946-1964, making Obama a Boomer. Gen X, then, was from 1965-1981. Gen Y (aka “Millenials” or “Echo-boomers”) were from 1982-2000. I don’t know if post-Millenials have a “name” yet.

    • Jeff

      Yes, you are correct, I believe. I’m in the middle of the Baby Boom Generation and have never really understood what someone born in 1946 has in common with someone born in 1964. I think you have to differentiate early Boomers from middle and late boomers for the generation thing to have any real meaning. I grew up 20 miles from Berkeley, but I got to college just after the end of the War, so my college experience was very different from that of someone just a couple of years older.

  • Chinqua

    I think you couldn’t be more wrong. I see Obama as being a persecuted child because he was neither white nor black. I think he hates BOTH his parents for abandoning him and leaving him with WHITE grandparents (whom he later “threw under the bus). Kids can be cruel and I think Obama, Holder, Jarad, and several others in this administration can fall under that category. Hence, they want revenge. “Let’s show ‘em all”, attitude. “Let’s “get even”.

    Personally I don’t think Obama’s lazy or spoiled rotten. He’s narcissistic to the core. He’s in love with himself. He has sold his soul to the communist theory of political life. Taking a mans life means nothing to him. The Emperor Caligula spoke for him when he said: “If I am man, then my subjects are something else. If they are men, then I am something more”. He sees all as his subjects, even those closest to him. On the other hand, with his pride he is easy to manipulate because he doesn’t realize he is being manipulated. As an amoral man he has no conception of morality. He is dangerous, not so much of himself, but because of the people he surrounds himself with. Of course he is lazy because he doesn’t care what he does. His work comes second to his pleasures. He doesn’t accept responsibility. Roosevelt was like that and Stalin by bowing to him got whatever he wanted. The king has no clothes on but all that you have to do is bow to his beauty to get what you want. He glories with his subjects praising him and electing him. They get what they want and he gets what he wants. America is secondary to him and his subjects. In their minds if they’ve got America they control the world, and everyone in it.

    • http://http/google MarkOwen

      Yes Obama is in love with himself, and I guess so is Jeff. He would kiss his black ass if he told him to. As for Bush, W. His Washington fatcat daddy kept his alcoholic ass out of Viet-Nam by sticking him in the Nat’l Guard. It’s not any one politician who got us into this mess, they all share some of the guilt. With all their greed and avarice, We the people used to mean something, The constitution still means something if we can get the up and coming politicians to stand up to the closet communist muslims in power now!

        Mark Owen, I must agree with a lot of what you are saying. To mangle an old Texas proverb, “there’s more politicians need hangin than there are articles of the constitution that need breakin.” And no I’m not a Texan, unless you want to count Canada as part of north Texas.

      Or, if you live in the United States, throw him in the car, drive South until you hit a Red State. Then you can beat the crap out of him and no one will care. Of course, he’ll turn out to be a rapist (or a Republican), but maybe he’ll learn not to annoy YOU.

      You might want to start with learning English. Obama is only working for Obama. He is not working for any of the people. He does not love this country (or any other). He only loves himself. I suggest you pull up the definition of Narcissistic Personality Disorder and read it. You will then understand Obama. I was taught when I first got into the Mental Health field that when you see someone that you have a very strong negative reaction to, they usually have a Personality Disorder. Obama is one that causes me to have a very strong negative reaction. I can’t stand to hear him speak or even look at him. His posture, with his nose pointing in the air all the time, indicates he thinks himself superior to others. His blaming others for his failures is classic NPD. No, Obama has no love for his fellow man or this country. He only loves himself and that should be apparent to all.

        Getting desperate, Galt? A text without a context is a pretext…

        I took the liberty to include more of the text from Franklin’s autobiography wherein the “quote” you posted on numerous occasions is found. Why not let the readers decide for themselves what Franklin was really saying, Galt? Or will you be joining the ranks of those you accuse of rewriting history?

        From Franklin’s autobiography chapter 11…

        The year following, a treaty being to be held with the Indians at Carlisle, the governor sent a message to the House, proposing that they should nominate some of their members, to be join’d with some members of council, as commissioners for that purpose. The House named the speaker (Mr. Norris) and myself; and, being commission’d, we went to Carlisle, and met the Indians accordingly.

        As those people are extreamly apt to get drunk, and, when so, are very quarrelsome and disorderly, we strictly forbad the selling any liquor to them; and when they complain’d of this restriction, we told them that if they would continue sober during the treaty, we would give them plenty of rum when business was over. They promis’d this, and they kept their promise, because they could get no liquor, and the treaty was conducted very orderly, and concluded to mutual satisfaction. They then claim’d and receiv’d the rum; this was in the afternoon; they were near one hundred men, women, and children, and were lodg’d in temporary cabins, built in the form of a square, just without the town.

        In the evening, hearing a great noise among them, the commissioners walk’d out to see what was the matter. We found they had made a great bonfire in the middle of the square; they were all drunk, men and women, quarreling and fighting. Their dark-colour’d bodies, half naked, seen only by the gloomy light of the bonfire, running after and beating one another with firebrands, accompanied by their horrid yellings, form’d a scene the most resembling our ideas of hell that could well be imagin’d; there was no appeasing the tumult, and we retired to our lodging. At midnight a number of them came thundering at our door, demanding more rum, of which we took no notice.

        The next day, sensible they had misbehav’d in giving us that disturbance, they sent three of their old counselors to make their apology. The orator acknowledg’d the fault, but laid it upon the rum; and then endeavored to excuse the rum by saying, “The Great Spirit, who made all things, made every thing for some use, and whatever use he design’d any thing for, that use it should always be put to. Now, when he made rum, he said ‘Let this be for the Indians to get drunk with,’ and it must be so.” And, indeed, if it be the design of Providence to extirpate these savages in order to make room for cultivators of the earth, it seems not improbable that rum may be the appointed means. It has already annihilated all the tribes who formerly inhabited the sea-coast.

        might be worth your time……..

        Galt: Reverence for the past is a stupid investment……….

        I hope you do not assume a have reverence for the past, or that i’m under the impression that the past was somehow rosier than the present. I do not think nor assume such nonsense. Rather, nothing has changed, history does not repeat itself; everything is as it always was. The only thing that changes are the faces and the participants of the age old “play”. If there ever were moments in history where sanity prevailed, those moments were no doubt brief, perhaps when humanity after witnessing a calamity/catastrophe wrought by their own hands, the magnitude of the destruction may have shocked them for a time, resulting in sober contemplation, but only for a short time…business as usual quickly returned. History will attest to this!

        As for Mr. Franklin’s quote, which you offered in isolation, it was just that that i resented…a quote without the supporting text. May seem a bit trite, but it bothers me nonetheless. I would rather the reader arrive to the revelation on his own, rather then be deceitfully led to it, irregardless of its veracity. Yes, of course, Mr. Franklin’s quote condemns him, no surprise here.

      To a Republican, “spoiled” and “elite” have been transformed into cultural terms. If you claim to like pork rinds and spy novels, you’re not elite no matter your privileged background. But if you’re born poor but you’re smart and do well in school, you’re the elitist. It’s the old Republican trick of playing with language. Remember the Jackson Browne line: “The future is there for anyone to change, but it seems sometimes it would be easier to change the past.”

      Forget Jesus, the Republican savior now is Frank Luntz.

        Jeff you really have a thing for this class warfare gig man . and its not going to change anything because the same people you hate are the same people that elected Obama

        • Jeff

          Who is it you think I hate? I think the republican austerity plan is idiotic. It is supported by people who grew up rich and poor and they’re wrong either way. Some are particularly hypocritical. Paul Ryan has never worked a day in the private sector except maybe a bit for his family company while in school. He has been the recipient of Government largesse his entire life. His family got rich through government contracts. He has been on a government payroll his entire adult life, but he wants old people to go out and buy their own health insurance. Why? Because he read Ayn Rand in high school. He only separated himself from her recently when he “discovered” she was an atheist (and a Jewish atheist, at that).

          When I talk about “elitism” it’s the hypocrisy and the misuse of the language I’m talking about. Bush grew up in the most influential of families. Rich, privileged beyond measure. And what do you know? His economic policies favor the wealthy. What a coincidence. His idiotic tax cuts and then his idiotic wars destroyed the economy. But Bush can’t be an elitist because he can barely read or write and talks like a complete moron.

          No, Obama is the elitist because he can speak in complete sentences, paragraphs even. It has nothing to do with class. In fact, in the past many wealthy politicians had more of a feel for the common good than did others. FDR, the Kennedys, even the Rockefellers. It’s only when a politician’s personal finances will be benefitted by his “policies” that I question his motives. Bush, Romney are perfect examples.

        That’s right. Herr Bush layed out the red carpet for an Obama. When Obama got into power he couldn’t believe how much power he had inherited and has been busy building on it. We must remember, Herr Bush is a product of conservativism, not the liberals. Herr Bush is a dyed in the wool christian Zionist, as are most of the republicans in power, and they have the Zionists ring in their noses. The liberals put themselves first. That’s why Netanyahu rooted for Romney, not Obama. This country is split by many groups. Let’s hope the Americans can regroup and return America to “In God we trust” Americans.

I didn’t vote for him either time, BUT yet, I still call him The President of the United States.

        If the eye candy is not enough ~ FOX is a premium network ~ comes “FREE” with basic cable, serving up pretty women , news, weather and SPORTS! 24 /7 I suppose. Makes Fox a very popular media channel. ~ But that popularity has zero to do with factual news reporting.

        The PRICE IS RIGHT! ~ and of course you can’t tell a subscriber that it’s FREE for they paid for basic cable. ~ It’s sort of like taking someones Tax Break away from them . You are taking away what they “possess”.

        In the early years of the TEA Party ~ TP members attempted so hard to claim a national majority ~ by virtue of Fox Networks popularity! Hahaha! ~ It’s was very comical. ~ And I think that many still believe that today ~ even after losing an election ~ that Fox claimed was “In the Bag” ~ They will fall all over themselves to get a Karl Rove appearance.

    John Myers:

    My understanding is that the “Boomer” generation runs from January 01, 1946 – December 31, 1964. So, Little Barry would be a Baby Boomer – which is still spoiled.

    I did not tell my kids they were special. I told them I had a special shoe on my foot – steel toe. They knew the old man meant business. Their mother, on the other hand, was another story…

    • kathy

      The Self Esteem generation (I am perfect in every way) I believe started with the “leading edge” baby boomers. Their parents were born around WWI and lived through prohibition, the Depression, and World War II. With WWII and jobs in aerospace manufacturing, these folks had their first taste of prosperity. They didn’t want their kids to go through what they went through, so they lavished gifts and attention on them. The Self Esteem kids were born during the later part of WWII and after the war (baby boomers after the war). These kids had schools and colleges built for them and were the flower children and Vietnam protestors of the late 60s. All marketing efforts for the next 50 years were focused on them. Obama’s mother was born during WWII, but she didn’t have much influence on her son as she was too busy with her own self absorption. Her parents were the ones with influence on Obama, so he was spoiled by grandparents who were born around WWI, lived through the prohibition, Depression and WWII. He was spoiled in the same way his Mother was spoiled.

      • Bob666

        Yo Kathy,
        I agree with your first statment regarding the self esteem generation, but not about those grand parents who raised the grand-kids. Saw a lot of it growing up and those kids were raised with the same work ethic, morals and values that I was raised with. I saw a bunch of it.

        Were they influienced by their friends parents-maybe?

        (But thanks to the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” lawsuit the Occidental College Released copies of the Kenyan Criminal college transcripts. “Released today, the transcript school indicates that Obama, UNDER the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that obama (Soetoro) APPLIED FOR FINANCIAL AID and was awarded a fellowship for FOREIGN STUDENTS from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program.”

        Jeffry, To qualify, for this kind of scholarship, a student MUST claim FOREIGN CITIZENSHIP. And Barry Soetoro in his Financial Aid Application of Occidental College CLAIMED he was a FOREIGN CITIZEN Indonesia.

        • Adoption by Soetoro records – Sealed

        Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama’s campaign spending. This study estimates that obama has SPENT upwards of $950,000 in CAMPAIGN FUNDS in the past year with 11 law firms in 12 states (18 suits!!!) for legal resources to BLOCK DISCLOSURE OF ANY OF HIS PERSONAL RECORDS. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. Attorney general, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter…”

        Jeffry, are you surprised that Criminal Holder “has refused to comment on the matter”?

        Jeffry, how do you think what kind of people don’t want to disclose the TRUTH?

        2) In 2004, long before presidential campaign of 2008, an article in the Kenyan Sunday Standard: “Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate”

        3) The Usurper himself tells to student: “It’s true, I’m not American … I came from Kenya”. (Jeffry, I tell you a secret: This part of video was provided by the Secret Service agent)

        4) The first Witch testifies that the Charlatan’s HOME-country is Kenya: (“We took our trip to Africa, visiting his HOME-country Kenya”)

        5) The Charlatan’s Kenyan grandma confirms he was born in Kenya

        6) The Kenyan Ambassador confirms the Fraud was born in Kenya and he is expressing his pride for his “FELLOW-COUNTRY-MAN”

        7) 3 (THREE) Hawaiian Official are denying existence of O’Homobama’s Birth Certificate and gave SWORN AFFIDAVIT that the Kenyan charlatan was NOT BORN in Hawaii.

        8) The Governor of Hawaii Neil Abercrombie admits that there is NO records of the obama’s Birth in Hawaii

        These are UNDENIABLE and INDISPUTABLE FACTS!!!

          “It is really sad to see. But, this is typical of ohomo supporters”

          Go back and so me where I have at any time been an Obama supporter?

          He won, twice. It is the moronic rants like Alonda who like to go to fringe sites and make crap up and yes, it is called crap for a reason. I respect the rule of law and that covers elections as well.

          So continue to spew your fuzzy math and fiction regarding the election and ignore the facts. McCain, is a decent honorable man who screwed the pooch by picking a pinhead with the IQ of a cumquat as his VP running mate.

          Romney is the “spoiled rotten” brat who could not close the deal because he was more wishy-washy than Slick Willie. Based on what I have observed, you and Alondra will continue to have you heads up each other’s rear -ends and four years from now, there will be far more conspiracy theories while Hillary stole the election.

          Mean while, the country loses and you two are the problem because people like you alienate middle of the road voters like me. I have voted for far more republicans than democrats in the last fifty plus years and I vote for the right individual, not the party. Unfortunately, that has become the lesser of two evils in the last thirty-years.

          You have Obama because the country was burnt out on the failed policies of your wonder boy “W” and yea, I’m sure he made those of you in Texas proud. The only support that I have given Obama is to acknowledge the success that he has had and to recognized the fact that Bush handed him an economy that was melting down like a Japanese nuclear reactor after a tsunami.

          Let me say this to you a third time, you need to bring substance and fact to the table for debate, otherwise-craw back under the porch if you can’t run with the big dogs.

    Obama and Bush are Cousins!

    According to Factcheck.org, Obama and Bush are 11th cousins, both descended from Samuel Hinckley, who lived in Massachusetts in the 17th century.

    Meanwhile, Obama is also related — even more closely — to Dick Cheney. They are eighth cousins, both descended from a French Huguenot named Mareen Duvall who settled in Maryland in the 17th century.

    Hinckley married twice; first on December 6, 1641 to Mary Richards, and again to Mary Glover (née Smith) on March 15, 1659. He may have had as many as 17 children; different sources disagree on the exact number.

    One of his children, Samuel Hinckley (whose mother was Mary Richards), was a direct ancestor of Presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, as well as an ancestor of the former president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Gordon B. Hinckley.

    Thomas Hinckley’s sister, Susannah Hinckley, is an ancestor of President Barack Obama, which means that Thomas Hinckley’s father, Samuel Hinckley, is the ancestor of three U.S. presidents.

    Hmm, sounds like Obama comes from a privileged background, after all! This may also explain the “secrecy” that enshrouds the Obama-man…as well, the similarities in their policies, both foreign and domestic…spooky!!!

        All U.S. Presidents but one descended from King John of England. What do Barack Obama, Thomas Jefferson, George W. Bush and the other past U.S. presidents have in common? Besides holding the coveted title of commander-in-chief, it appears that all of them but one (Martin Van Buren) are cousins. 42 of 43 U.S. presidents are connected to one common ancestor: King John of England.

        King John, also known as John ‘Lackland’, is renowned for signing the Magna Carta in 1215, which limited the monarch’s power and helped form the British Parliament.

          Many have been left-handed but certainly not all. Didn’t Nixon bowl right handed? And Ike played golf right-handed. Until very recently, we didn’t see Presidents do anything physical unless they were signing an important bill. Didn’t W play golf right handed?

        • Jeff

          JFK was right-handed and I think FDR, too. Left handers may be over-represented in presidents (Bush 41, Clinton, Obama), but nowhere near all are left-handed.

      • Karolyn

        Being left-handed points to someone being more right-brained, which translates to being more creative and balanced.

      • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing WTS/JAY

        Karolyn, nothing creative or balanced regarding most Presidents. Perhaps we should start getting some right-handed in office for a change…LOL!

  • Steve9515

    Perhaps some good points but way over-assumptive and the points are supported mostly by your conjunctures. The biggest mistake of your article is when you say that President Obama is of the Generation X. 1961 fully falls into the common understanding of the Baby Boomer generation. 1957 was the peak of the Baby Boom and and it ran till 1964. Therefore many of your points are nullified immediately.

  • http://Hotmail Jack

    John, I agree with your argument but have to correct you on the ages of baby-boomers. They were born from 1946-1964; gen-x’ers had to have been born later. The oldest boomer was 14 yrs. old in 1960.

I don’t care how jaded or hateful the Left, many of them are still human enough to know senseless destruction when they see it being committed. Things are beginning to seep out of the White House. We are seeing people pull away and decide that they do not want to be a part of the regime.

        The plan to use drones in this country on citizens is seen as going to far by many. The more people learn about ohomocare the more they will fight it. Things are coming to a head and the people, even many libs, are waking up! That is why the urgency to take firearms from the people. That is why government is buying millions of rounds of ammunition. That ammunition is not for office workers that sit at desks and shuffle paper.

    There are three ways to interpret the goings on in the US today:

    1. The country is under the control of idiots

    2. The country is run by people for completely immoral people for their own profit who will do anything to make a buck including irradiate travelers in airports and fill the country with military weaponry

    3 The country is run by fascists who know exactly what they’re doing

    It’s getting pretty hard to accept Options #1 and #2 these days.

Does the writer realize that someone can disagree with his views and values without being an idiot or a facist? Number 2 fits Bush II and the Republican party better than it fits Obama. Number 3 shows the writer does not know what facism is, and thinks it means any assertion of government authority with which he disagrees.

Marxsims, communism, socialism, facism, it has all been tried around the world and it all has failed.

        What people like you want is for all the wealth and power to be controlled by the government!

        The reason for this is that you are envious and resent the fact that smart individuals that are willing to work, can gain personal wealth. Since you can’t compete in the real world, you want to eliminate this opportunity for all! You want government to control the wealth and power and the government to “dole it out.” That way everyone will live in “shared poverty!” But, no one will have more than you and that is what is important!

    A child does not have to be spanked to learn right from wrong. An example I would use is my liberal brother and sister-in-law’s children. They were raised without violence, with a strong religious background, going to Catholic schools; and they have grown into exceptional adults, each successful, happy and contributing members of society. There are ways beyond spanking, which is a violent act, to raise decent human beings.

        You are the one that doesn’t know “fact from fiction!” You can’t tell us one thing that makes this Affirmative Action retard…great in your eyes!

        You haven’t a clue about where this person comes from and there is nothing to substantiate your claims of his “superiority.”

        One question, “Why has nearly Two Million Dollars been spent with Twelve law firms to hide everything about this fraud?”

        He has been disbarred and his law license taken away because he lied on his application (supposedly.) We don’t really know the reason he was disbarred. He has lived off other people’s money and never even run a lemonade stand.
        He has no qualifications to hold the office of the presidency and the world is laughing at us.
        This fraud was never elected! He was placed on the throne, as King, by the people that own our country.

        In 2003, the demonrats tried Eight-times in Twenty-two months to get a Bill passed that would eliminate the “Natural born citizen” qualification so that this illegal could be president.
        They failed, it is all in the Congressional Record! The demonrats saw to it that this illegal was never “vetted” and they ignored the Constitutional requirements for presidents.

        The fact that we have an illegal “something” squatting in the oval office is the most shameful period in our Nation’s history! There is nothing that any libturd can say that changes the facts.

        • Jeff

          Your post is sheer lunacy. Where is your evidence of any of the factual assertions you’ve made? And don’t bother with the “natural born citizen” nonsense. The Constitution doesn’t define it, and the cases you wingnuts keep citing don’t say what you seem to think they do. If a person is born in the U.S. and is over 35, he/she is eligible to be president. OMG, even YOU’RE eligible!

          • Frank Kahn

            Wrong, a naturalized citizen is not eligible. A person born to two non citizens does not qualify to serve as president. Even a person born to 1 citizen, who is not born on US soil, or on a recognized US possession, i.e. embassy, military base or places like the Philippines is not qualified.

          • Jeff

            You’re correct about the diplomats. An ambassador’s wife giving birth in the US is an exception to the 14th Amendment. The other point I don’t believe is correct. I’ve read a lot of the cases that supposedly “held” that “natural born citizen” means 1 or 2 citizen parents. They don’t. There’s some dictum in one case from the 19th Century recognizing the citizenship of someone born here with a citizen parent, but that was not the issue in the case. If two immigrants come here and have a child before either becomes a citizen, I believe the child is a “natural born citizen” for purposes of becoming president. If you have some proof otherwise, I’d like to see it.

          • Bob666

            Kathy,
            Please allow me to take a shot at this one for you. I have family and friends of all walks of life and each far side of the political fence. I have always received more political emails from those on the right and when I look at them, three things are almost always prevalent; 90% fiction, 60% character related and about 70% racial. These are thru slurs, caricatures, cartoon or photo shopped photos.

            While I can get where people may not like his policies (as there are not many that I agree with for that fact), but the “N” word or an equalivant ultimately comes out and at the very least the fact that he is “black”. Moreover, there is an equally ugly context toward Michelle Obama and she has nothing to do with policy.

            There is a race card played, but I believe that you are looking in the wrong direction.

          • dianiline

            Oh, Bob, you are definitely hanging out with the wrong crowd. There are undoubtedly a few racists in this country that aren’t Democrats. I’m sorry you seem to know most of them.

            I know a white woman who ran up to black people with glee, asking if they weren’t excited that there was a viable black presidential candidate. It was embarrassing.

            It is astonishing to me that a black person would ever vote for a Democrat, since the Democrats are the party of slavery and segregation. But memories are short, historical knowledge just about nonexistent, and Democrats lie. Also, if you are black and don’t drink the liberal kool-aid, the progressive diversity crowd will tear you to pieces.

          • Bob666

            Hi Dianiline,
            it’s been a while and I had truly hoped that you would grow wiser and more experienced. But, I tend to be more optamistic than I should be regarding some of the people that I come across on this site

          • Jeff

            “It is astonishing to me that a black person would ever vote for a Democrat, since the Democrats are the party of slavery and segregation. But memories are short, historical knowledge just about nonexistent, and Democrats lie. Also, if you are black and don’t drink the liberal kool-aid, the progressive diversity crowd will tear you to pieces.”

            I don’t know of any Black Republicans being torn to pieces. They seem to do quite well making appearances on Cable. Sean Hannity is so thrilled to have a Black person agree with him about something, it doesn’t even matter if he makes sense.

            As for historical knowledge, it is true that Americans have very short memories. It is also true that not all historical facts hold true in the present. It is certainly true that Southern Democrats up to the 50s and 60s were racists. They were called Dixiecrats and were nominally Democrats because the South would not vote Republican after Lincoln and the Civil War. I assume your history class went back that far?

            The Diexiecrats were an embarrassing appendage to the Northern party. Northern Democrats and Republicans worked together to pass civil rights legislation. The majority of the credit for such legislation went to LBJ who used his considerable arm-twisting skills in a good cause. But LBJ recognized his efforts would backfire and hand the South to the Republicans for a generation or more. Sure enough, within a few years, all the Dixiecrats became Republicans. They not only became Republicans; they became the base of the party. Want to see a modern-day Dixiecrat like Strom? Just look at any Southern Republican. In fact, any tea party Republican might as well be Strom – just without some of the racially incendiary language.

            Black people were Republicans until FDR. They were pretty evenly split from FDR until the mid-60s and the migration of the Dixiecrats to the Republicans (Remember Nixon’s Southern Strategy?) So, don’t be “surprised” that most Blacks don’t care to be associated with a party whose base most resembles those who were lynching their grandfathers not so long ago. Some history is far more relevant than other history. It takes sense to know the difference.

            “It is certainly true that Southern Democrats up to the 50s and 60s were racists. They were called Dixiecrats and were nominally Democrats because the South would not vote Republican after Lincoln and the Civil War”.

            You are very much correct on this. If those Dixiecraes were alive today, they would be 95% republicans and I would say their children and grand children are here in the south today.

            You don’t see many people of color at GOP functions here in the south or the tea party functions that I have attended. Dixiecrates carried a grudge from the days of Lincoln and that is not to say the GOP in the south was the bastion of civil rights. Both parties were equal in their prejudice here in the south at the time.

Even if it was originally a GOP idea they would oppose, oppose, oppose. Not even one day of grace. What was different about this president that he could not be granted one moment of co-operation? And why the hoopla about the birth certificate? And even when it was produced that was not good enough and even now many tea baggers still insist that he’s from Kenya or Indonesia or both. And what’s all this about him being “lazy”? weren’t negros of old “lazy”? Listen for the code words. And now they want his grades all the way back to elementary school. What other President EVER had to turn his grades over to the likes of Donald Trump? Well, no black guy could ever do well at university right? So we better demand to have a look at his grades. Like he was a child.

          • Jeff

            You’re exactly correct. Anyone who “can’t” see it is blind, either actually or purposefully. You can tell the difference in 2 seconds. Some try to go into detail about why they disagree with Obama on Policy A or B. Most on these blogs just start with the name-calling. If the latter aren’t bigots, let them say what they are.

          • http://N/A CintiCB

            YOU are the one who is judging him based on his skin color. Would you be so ‘gung ho’ for him if he wasn’t a, oh sorry, if he ain’t be’d no homey? Even though actual facts have no place in this current ‘transparent’ administration you would sound a lot less ignorant (to reality) and a lot less racist if you’d learn the facts!!! By the way, to all of you little race ‘victims’, if there truly was so much racism then your Civil Rights ‘used to bes’ (pronounced bees) would NOT have to look SO HARD to find ‘racism’ to keep their names ‘out there’. Hell, the whiners even sued a chicken restaurant for having a black in their commercial (because blacks like chicken a lot-so do I). These wanna bes (bees) would have sued the same chicken place, and labeled them racist, if they did NOT hire black, as their intention would be based on old racist stereotypes. Besides the ridiculousness of this, they caused one of their own ‘persecuted victims’, to become unemployed/lose her job. Most of your little race baiters are NOT on ‘your side’, they are on their own side. If they were ‘for you’ they would do what Romney would have done-show/teach you how to improve your standing in life. “GIVE a man a fish and you feed him for a day, TEACH a man how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”. If this is ‘over your head’, just ask any ‘non-victim’ what it means. Anymore, it seems that America equals ignorance!!!

          • Jeff

            Exactly how dense ARE you, anyway? In case you didn’t know, most of the people who voted for Obama are not Black. Your assumptions about Obama voters (Black, homies, Welfare Queens, etc., etc.) are the proof of your bigotry.

          • dianiline

            It is not a problem that Obama is black.

            Indeed it is the only thing we like about him.

          “We have no president. We have a foreigner illegally occupying our White House.

          You, JC, are a stupid, racist ignoramus.There’s nothing to “get over”…it’s just a fact.

    • dianiline

      To refute your theory about lazy people, I present Barack Obama, a lazy person who has found himself in exactly the positions you describe.

      It is one of his better qualities. God help us if he were industrious or competent, because then he would be able to do even more harm than he has.

      Obama has all the wrong goals in mind. He says the right things, but he doesn’t know what them mean. For example, he praises liberty and gun rights, then sets out to gut them.

      • Jeff

        The ability to hold two opposing ideas in your head simultaneously is a sign of a first-rate intelligence. We had 8 years of a brainless, right wing cheerleader as President. It’s refreshing to have one who can actually think.

    • http://twitter.com/pjkate jacoo (@pjkate)

      Obama himself said he was lazy in an interview with Barbara Walters on December 23, 2011. We wouldn’t think of disputing the PrezO’s own words.

  • Chris Condon

    When future historians look back at our era and try to understand it, the first thing that they will have to do is figure out why baby boomer generation turned out so badly. This is the worst generation in American history.

    • kathy

      Agree mostly Chris, but it’s more the “leading edge” baby boomers than the “trailing edge”. After the leading edge took eveything because they were there first, the trailing edge actually had to be competitive. The Leading edge boomers as job seekers wanted to know what benefits they would get and how much vacation they’d get and basically “what can the company do for me”. The Trailing edge boomers wanted to know how they could contribute to whatever company where they were seeking a job. As a Headhunter, had quite a bit of experience dealing and learning about the particular demographic.

  • R. Fine

    I remember your dear Republican President Bush being interviewed about the Iraq war while he was actually swinging away on the golf course. It’s time you right wing folks realize that the election is over and you lost. Lost big time. And if your policies don’t change soon you will be the big losers in the next election too.

      Can you imagine electing a person to high office who thinks Austrian is a language ?

      • robbiefine@hotmail.com

        Gee, thanks for reminding me. I had forgotten that one. Having said that W was a heck of a lot brighter than the last batch of republican clowns.

  • Elda

    He is lazy but that has less to do with his upbringing and more to do with his pathological form of NARCISSISM! There are many forms of lazy, he has the one that shows he feels he is more important than the rest of us. Now sadly, he is in a position that makes him more important and he thinks it is because it is him, not the office. The fact is he is a fool and that fool is destroying the greatest nation the world has ever known and I guess that makes him the biggest criminal in the world to add to his list of labels.

    • robbiefine@hotmail.com

      I hate to break this news to you but the President IS more important than you are. He’s also more accomplished than you are. He has won TWO nation wide elections and has scores of millions of supporters. He also has 2 or 3 university degrees, was a lawyer and a state senator and a federal senator. I have a feeling he may be one of the smartest people in the country whilst you on the hand….

      • http://yahoo bob peters

        ok robbiefine,,show us his college records?? he was a senator in name only ..only voted absent,,,His millions of followers are welfare rats and idiots like you are….He won the first election that surely was set up by Mc’cain being the opponent and the second was rigged to the max….you brainwashed “yes we can” liberal idiot!

        • Jeff

          I just hope there are many more out there like you with no understanding of the American electorate. Your JBS or KKK meetings are not representative of more than the tiniest sliver of American opinion. I hope Republicans continue to believe, as Romney implied, that only people on welfare vote for Democrats. Don’t change any of your delusions. You are always right; it’s the rest of the world that’s wrong.

        • robbiefine@hotmail.com

          I don’t need to have his college records. The fact is that he was admitted to a college that would have had – as a matter of course – all his academic records. Then he was accepted to Columbia University that also would have had his records as part of his application. That’s how it works in case you didn’t know. After graduating Columbia he applied to and was accepted by Harvard University which, again, would have had to have had his previous records. That’s how it works. It does not matter if you or Donald Trump ever get to see his records. And after Harvard and being the editor of the harvard Law Review (very prestigious as you may or may not know) he applied to teach at the U of Chicago which would have again gone over all of his previous academic credentials. He became a law professor there as you may know. And, of course, he was a lawyer at one of the bigger law firms in Chicago which would also have reviewed all his credentials and done personal interviews with him. Now if you think that Obama went through all these hoops without having a stellar academic record then you totally don’t know how academia operates. And I just love the way the clown Trump goes on about how he (Trump) wants to see the President’s record at every school. As if Trump knows the first thing about it. Trump should just mind his own freakin’ business.

          • Jeff

            You’ll have to excuse “bob” as he isn’t too aware of how things work in academia. When you graduate from 6th grade at age 30, Harvard Law school is a bit outside your field of expertise. He DOES seem to know something about trailers, though. And food stamps.

          • dianiline

            Yes, he certainly has some academic distinctions, beginning with being homeschooled by his determined white mother.

            And yet, he can put forth the concept that we won’t have to pay for contraceptive coverage; our *insurance company* will pay for it. Now it’s possible that he is not really dumb enough to believe this, but then he must think WE are dumb enough to believe it, and he must be evil enough to try to defraud us in this way. He is either stupid or evil, and I prefer to think he’s stupid.

            Giving him the benefit of the doubt.

          • kathy

            He was an Affirmative Action Baby all the way. Pushed through every step of the way with very rich puppet masters. If Oblamer had such a sterling academnic record, providing his transcriptions should not have been a big deal. Remember even prestigious academic enclaves can be bought or threatened.

        • robbiefine@hotmail.com

          Oh, and for your information I am not on welfare & in fact I am not even an American. But I do think it is rather amusing that the losers of elections can always come up with excuses for their loss other than blaming their own incompetence. You claim that McCain was some kind of set up so that Obama could win? Do I have that right? Who chose McCain? Was it not the Republican primary voters? And who chose that clown Palin to run as VP? Not the Republicans? Isn’t she a favourite of theirs? Can you imagine selecting someone for high office who thought Africa was a country? How dumb do you have to be for the Republicans to swoon over you?

      • kathy

        I don’t believe he was a high achiever at Columbia or Harvard. Carried along by affirmative action. Surrendered law license. Law Review because he was a minority. Didn’t deserve any more than Nobel peace prise. Didn’t complete term as US Senator.

        • Bob666

          Yo Kathy,
          At the end of the day, there is what you believe and fact, two different things. One of many facts is; he is far more accomplished than you will ever hope to be.

          • kathy

            Since you are so keen on FACTS, please tell me how you reached your conclusion that Obummer is more accomplished than I can ever hope to be. Speak only of what you know.

          • Bob666

            Yo Kathy,
            That one is easy, you are not president of the most powerful country on the face of the earth.

            Any other questions?

          • kathy

            Success is measured in many ways. He has the title, but has not been successful. He’s gotten us involved in more wars than W and has no fulfilled any promise except to get us in a health care program of whict no one read the bill. He has not been transparent (every bill on the Internet before being passed). He has us marching in direction of socialism. Has not succeeded in creating a budget. Has done very little else except go on vacations and golf outings. His family vacations costs last year were 1.4 Billion dollars. I could go on an on, but perhaps you are a low information liberal with head in the sand. I’m not going to waste any more of my valuable time on this. Someone else will have to carry on.

          • Jeff

            Kathy:

            You are an ignoramus of the first magnitude. Are you getting your information from Sean Hannity? Obama has gotten us into more wars than W? He ended the Iraq Idiocy and is ending (too slowly for my tastes) Afghanistan. Had McCain won, both wars would still be going strong. The only military intervention under Obama was Libya and that involved no U.S. troops. You can criticize the drone program, etc. but you can’t say Obama has gotten us involved in more wars than W. Unless you’re either a no-information voter or congenitally stupid.

          • kathy

It’s among the worst things that one human has ever done to another human!!! Don’t you realize, in your infinite ‘wisdom’, that yo home boy is a SLAVE. His masters are his Muslim bro.s-the string pullers of this puppet who is the president! I fear the time when the bro.s realize that ALL Americans are not the dumb gullible ghettoNes and are ‘catching on’, so, the sissy/ ‘old white man loving’ fraud can’t ‘snow’ them as much as he did and they kill the wimp. Then, the ghettoNes will riot and burn down the country (you know, what civilized intelligent ‘people’ do when they get ticked off about something, being da victims dat dey be’s). This would be the perfect time for his Muslim bro.s to swoop in and completely take over. Maybe, you’d be okay wearing veils/clothes over your face and being blamed if you got raped, but, I wouldn’t. I thought that the reason that your homie spent MILLIONS to hide his records was because he was trying to hide more of his fakeness, but, with recent realizations, it seems that the main thing that home boy is hiding is the influence of the Muslims in making sure that he was elected-by whatever means necessary. Doesn’t ignorance get old?!? Hell, you won’t be able to realize it until it is too late. Hopefully, the Koreans will aim for the white house at a time while they’re not on one of their MANY tax payer paid vacations-the richest Welfare ‘victims’ in the country!!!

          I know facts don’t matter to a zealous wingnut like yourself, but I believe Obama’s predecessor took more vacations than he has.

          http://politic365.com/2012/05/08/obamas-vacations-of-any-president-bush-racked-up-the-most/

          Now, the President, unlike Congress, is always on duty whether he’s in the White House, at Camp David, or on the beach in Hawaii. Personally, I felt better when W was clearing brush. I’d think you’d feel the same way about Obama. But when you’re a zealous wingnut, you have to say something critical about everything, don’t you? You guys are a joke. Michelle Obama tries to encourage kids to eat healthy food and you find sinister motives there, too. You’ve heard of the wingnut who cried wolf?

        Robbiefine (what does that mean, you think you are “fine.) This illegal black/brown moo, ohomo is a fraud.

        He is nothing but an “Affirmative Action” president, the first and only that has NO qualifications for the position he holds. This Affirmative Action, third-world derelict, was wisked off the streets and lived off other people’s money all his life.

        Ohomo has never had to be “qualified for anything.” His college records are held as “secret documents” along with all other personal documents that would prove his accomplishments or identity, at a cost of nearly Two Million Dollars to Twelve different law firms!

        Little Barry went to Occidental with a Fulbright Scholorship for Foreign Students because he told them he was Indonesian! He didn’t even have to go to class, no one would give him failing grades. Somewhere along the line he disappeared and returned with another identity, the identity he now claims. He changed colleges with another Affirmative Action identity and they don’t flunk AA students. His time at Harvard is a joke, as part of the time he wasn’t even in the country. Professors did the work for him, as they were paid by ohomo’s mentors. His degree was purchased and he is a total fraud.

        It is no wonder that he was disbarred and his law license was taken away. His time as a Senator was only a few month and he did nothing, just as he did nothing in Harvard. He never introduced any legislation, never voted other than “present” and only spent a hundred-plus days in Congress. He won this Senate seat by “default” as he had no opponent.

        We haven’t a clue who is squatting in the oval office as we have no evidence that he even exists. His iranian “handler” has planned his life and is still at his side with 24/7 access to him. We don’t know anything except we have a “shill” running our country.

    If you check his biography, Obama never really had any parents. This coupled with having everything handed to him has made him comletely lacking in experience… thus the incompetence. Sloagans obviously do not pay the bills. Facists are inherently irrrational people.

      “Sloagans obviously do not pay the bills. Facists are inherently irrrational people.”

      Unfortunately, we can’t all be as perfect as you. I’m sure you’re MUCH more deserving than Obama. After all, 2 white parents. So, why all the misspellings?

  • Pastor Larry James

    Your article begins with information backing up the idea that Obama is what psychiatry calls a narcissist. But it takes a sharp turn into a defense of spanking your child.
    I’m a baby boomer. I’ve been a pastor for 32 years. The example that I take for when to give your child a little spank and harsh talking to is the idea of the child running into traffic!
    However, discipline isn’t spanking. You need to be responsible parents and train your children with love. We all have to live responsible lives. If we don’t there are multiple prices to pay. A child should learn that there is are penalties to pay for destructive behavior. This training has to begin right at the beginning of life. Child training with love is the job of the parent.
    Everything that you wrote about the baby boomers and Obama I agree with. But it’s not just the lack of spanking, he was pampered all of his life. To this day he is treated like this. The press doesn’t hold him accountable for any of the odd and misinformed things that he says.
    I don’t expect him to be responsible. He wasn’t taught to be. His self love and excess will continue to increase.
    Thank you for your article and your time.

    • Jeff

      Well, a pastor wouldn’t just feed us unvarnished baloney and psychobabble now, would he? I take it your statements about Obama are not just the result of right wing conditioning?
