Obama’s Useful Idiots

September 21, 2012 by  

Obama’s Useful Idiots

The campaign to re-elect President Barack Obama is no stranger to pushing collectivist and government-first propaganda to excite its base, but many people have noted that the campaign initiatives are beginning to get creepier than ever before.

A couple months ago, the Obama campaign released an online application called “Life of Julia” which demonstrated how government involvement in the life of a young woman would likely differ under the policies of an Obama Administration as opposed to a Mitt Romney Administration’s policies. Small-government advocates were quick to point out that neither scenario was conducive to removing the government from the most intimate facets of day-to-day life, but the apocalyptic vision of a woman’s life without Obama’s big-government health policies proposed by the current Administration were, to many, downright laughable.

The demonstration plays as follows: Without Obama, young Julia is denied education. Then, she is denied surgery. Poorly educated and in less-than favorable health, Julia is forced to take an undesirable job at the age of 23 after barely scraping by in college. Later in life, she has more problems paying for healthcare and has a baby who she has trouble supporting. And then her kid has the same problems. In old age, Julia has no money and worries all the time.

It sounds preposterous, but you can check it out for yourself here.

The Obama cult of personality and government-always-helps campaign strategy has popped up again in his effort to encourage his supporters to praise the campaign by writing on their hands and sending photos to the campaign showing what makes them love Obama.

Here are some of the reasons — displayed in creepy fashion “#For All” — that some people support Obama.

Supporting Obama for food could actually seem logical, though food stamps may be a better thing for the President’s supporters to write on their hands. According to a recently released Congressional Research Service report, the number of able-bodied Americans now using food stamps nearly doubled, from 1.9 million in 2008 to 3.9 million in 2010, after Obama suspended the requirement for able-bodied adults without children to attempt to work before drawing full nutritional assistance.

And like those in Chicago who, through collectivist action, put on hold the start of school for nearly 350,000 already lagging students in the city.

See: Solyndra, Bright Source, Solar Trust of America, LSP Energy, Energy Conversion Devices, Amonix Solar, Abound Solar, Sun Power, Beacon Power, Ecotality, A123 Solar, UniSolar, Azure Dynamics, Evergreen Solar, Ener1. All are renewable energy firms, many of which received direct subsidies from the Obama Administration; all failed.

Despite promises from the President during the last campaign, large numbers of American troops remain in the Mideast long after Obama’s promised withdrawal dates. Worse, they continue to be killed by the very people they are attempting to train in places like Afghanistan where the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaida have taken a strong foothold thanks to failed American foreign policy shared by both George W. Bush and the current President.

Increased drone strikes that routinely kill civilians, the classification of any male old enough to hold a weapon as enemy combatant, indefinite detention and Fast and Furious are all policies that began or continued under the Obama Administration. Also, Guantanamo Bay is still open; and, as a U.S. citizen, your chances of being sent there have increased under Obama.

Hoping you don’t get fooled again?There are plenty more of the one-word pictorial devotions to Dear Leader Obama on his campaign sight here.

    Though they probably dont realize it…..all of these folks have the words “progressive liberal” tattooed on their forehead for eveyone to see.

  • Doc Sarvis

    If Romney is elected, 99% of Americans would photograph our hands covering our mouths (or much lower) because his administration would kick us in the teeth (or much lower).

    • Warrior

      I think the repeated “sledgehammer” hits to your head in the past several years have clouded your outlook. Time to see a Doc, Doc?

    • slapjack

      Doc your totally ignorant on this one. We are worse off with 4 years of Obummers stupidity. Romney can not do any worse.

      • Doc Sarvis

        President Obama knows and appreciates our armed forces. He is aware of the middle class and the plight of the poor in our country.

        Romney thinks the median income of Americans is $200,000 and does not even acknowledge the sacrafice of our military in the most important speech of his campaign.

      • michaeljbeglinjr

        Yeah Doc, he appreciates them so much that he will be putting quite a few of them in the unemployment line soon. Our troops are on food stamps and getting their houses repossessed on Obama’s watch. He sure shows how much he cares for our troops in weird ways.

    • daniel

      Uh hello Doc!!!! Open the door and look outside. We have already been kicked and I am glad I wear a cup. Any more of the O and I will have to move in with you.

    • wandamurline

      Pleeeeeze stop drinkin the kookaide that Obama is serving you…it is affecting your grey matter….and then go troll somewhere else…you can collect your money for the day for trolling here.

      • eddie47d

        Hey Doc I think Wanda added a little extra in her kool aid. Tea Party kool aid is always stronger and must be one of those secret moonshine recipes.

    • Dave Clark

      Please stop drinking the Obama Kool-Aid — it has turned your brain into mush. If we have 4 more years of Obama then you will see the end of this country as we know it. Obama is a socialist, a dictator wannabe, more than likely a communist, a Traitor to this country, a liar and to top it off he is the Prince of Fools.

    • msbets

      wow, this mindless morons wheels have come completely off, and needs medical attention ASAP, apparently he’s been using the same blow as the ovomit creature, ovomit is nothing but an evil, vile, foul smelling muzzies, that’s has already kicked your brains out.

    • al

      I sincerely hope you get to enjoy the experience of living in a United States with a Moderate Conservative in the WH, the Economy up and humming with good jobs for all and a real open and visible government following the Constitution to the letter. By the way Doc, none of these things have been apparent to anybody since you helped give us this useless clown who now wastes what little value we still have.
      November can not come soon enough so we can correct the error of 2008….

    • Maine One.

      We seem to have a choice between a man who supports the Muslim world and will force a world war on us with-in three and a half years, and one who will back the Statnests living in Israel (not all) who want the WAR to start now. This war will start with small arms, grow to bio, then escelate into small nucular war and then to an all out War. Just in case you want to know, Isaiah in the bible says that Damascus will be no more, and everything in that book has come to pass.

    • Marianne Cannizzaro

      You are a joke. I hope that patients realize how utterly stupid you are. Your viewpoints belong in Hugo Chavez territory…totally ignorant. Please stop putting up your ignorant opinions…they are offensive. Obama is a total communist and hates this country….Wake up!

  • pee

    This behavior has been a part of the human experience. F. Dostoevsky explained it in Chapter 5 of The Brothers Karamazov; “The Grand Inquisitor”.. In short.. many will trade their freedom for bread….

    • Huapakechi

      And then take comfort that the bread they traded their freedom for is rationed and adulterated with sawdust.

    • wandamurline

      I believe that Thomas Jefferson said it correctly….”Those who pound their guns to plows….will plow for those who do not”.

  • Steve E

    It’s so easy to brainwash people nowadays.

    • huapakechi

      Generations of ‘publik skuul’ indoctrination have done that job well.

  • daniel

    I think that the term useful idiots is much overused and illfitting when describing Obamabots. I believe purposefully ignorant would be more appropriate. An idiot does not know any better and sees no possibility of other answers. Purposeful ignorance, on the other hand means that you shut your mind off to other solutions as it would upset your little world.
    In this day and age information increases in availability nearly everyday. When Obama ran for president the first time I gave him a good listening to. It was easy to do as I was not much of a McCain fan either. Obama came off to me as a snake oil salesman down south. I also became alarmed when up sprang this cult of personality. This article is yet another example of that cult type following. I also just shook my head as I watched the media prostitute themselves on the altar of Obama sacrificing any possible claim to being objective disseminators of information to the public. Instead they became the Obama propaganda machine burying opponents of the O with innendos and out of context remarks. The fact that people bought it as they were lead by the nose amazed me and the fact that they are still allowing the media to shape not only their opinions but even the way they speak says volumes as to how much people in this country want to be lead instead of leading themselves.
    If these “useful idiots” even tokk a little time on their own to check out Obama and his history besides the “birther” issues they would find out their mistakes. However, doing so would upset their apple cart so they would really rather not talk about that.
    Obama has no plan to bring down the debt and I would say that he has no intention to do so. On a recent interview he stated that the debt short term was no problem but would be in the long term. As usual he has opted to kick the can down the road. The Obamabots well they will believe what the administration tells them to believe no questions asked.

    • Ried

      I live in Illinois, and nothing was reported on how a “do-nothing”, back-seat, state senator have his path paved to win a US Senate seat. Nothing has been reported on how as a US Senator, he did nothing for two years before running for President.

      Ignoring his liberal agenda, his years of experience in “doing nothing” should speak volumes about Obama’s ability to be President of the USA.

      And we wonder why the rest of the world calls us “dumb Americans”?

  • Gary L

    For every vote Obama got the first time around there was a useful idiot.
    Hopefully, some of those voters have learned enough to know better this time around.

    • Doc Sarvis

      …and NOT vote for Ritt Monmey.

      • Bob

        DOC, ya gotta lay off the keyboard! and the kool-aid! It’s evident that the brew has affected the grey matter, or whatever’s up there indicating that your stupidity is only overshadowed by your stupidity! “USEFUL IDIOT” just doesn’t cover it!

      • riedjacobsen

        Doc, are you suggesting a vote for the lesser of two evils? Which one would that be? And wouldn’t that still be a vote for evil?

        Why not vote for a “third” party alternative candidate?

      • Nobody’s Fool

        Doc, you are terminal. Hate to tell ya. Your brain has turned to horse hockey, really, you ought to quit eating all that cr*p dished out by the communists and muslims you so love and adore.

        Doc Sarvis, are you not just a bit too old to play the victim card, “PLD people don’t like what I, Doc, say, so out you trot the old cliche “they are picking on me”.

        I’m just pointing out that if one resorts to name calling and hurling insults they are likely compensating for a lack of a solid position on the topics.

      Slave to GOP and big money Mitt Romney along with airhead #1 Sarah Palin and airhead #2 Michelle Bachmann sound so much alike, I bet Mitt’s Morman type underwear is worn By airheads #1 and #2 Gary L comes in a close third as the GOP’s village idiot. [Offensive comment removed].

      • Chief Boring

        Doc and Eddie, see above for namecalling. And please, everyone, DO NOT VOTE FOR A THIRD PARTY CANDIDATE! That will only seal our fate for another four years.

    Doc Sarvis; Someone said, “I disagree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” I can relate to that. Shame on the rest of you for mean mouthing someone for exercising his right to free speech. I know better than that, and I’m not even an american.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      You are the proverbial village scold who eventually becomes a thug. Freedom of Speach works both ways. You dish out, you also should be able to take it or simply go away from this site. You “take offense” then that is your own brain’s problem.
      There is no right to be listened to or to be heard.

  • Johnny Geetar

    Doc, in case you haven’t noticed, Obama and friends are decimating the healing arts. In 2 years, doctors will be lucky to be making what auto mechanics make. Vote for Obama, and you cut your own throat. And let’s be clear; voting for Obama AIN’T helping you, or America. It’s helping HIM.
    I’m amazed at those claiming higher education today…. they can’t COUNT! Doc, 16 TRILLION in debt, we buy 70% of our OWN debt with worthless, printed money because NO ONE else will, our bond rating has been downgraded for the SECOND time in less than a year, the dollar, YOUR DOLLAR TOO, has lost 19% of it’s buying power under your boy in less than 4 years, and insurance costs are going through the roof courtesy of a looming Obamacare. This is just the synopsis….
    Your gonna vote for this meat popcicle again, and you claim to be EDUCATED??? It’s indefensible, And forgive me, you’re TOO DUMB to be a doctor! I wouldn’t let you run a taco stand with the flawed judgement you display…..

  • Melody

    Obama and his slaves want all people to be poor, and dependent. Obama thinks success and having goals and dreams are disgusting words and completely unattainable. He wants people to stupidly stand on the streets and wait for their meal and a hut to live in because he thinks it fair that no one have more than another…except of course for him and the ones in government. Do you realize that a government worker makes more for doing less than a private sector job??? And here is the ironic thing… government gets to decide how much they pay themselves???? No one gets fired… and no requirement is needed to be promoted other than the number of years in service. We are now seeing the have and the have nots… and it is government workers who have it all…. becoming princes and land barons over their sectors and dictate to the peasants what they will or will not do for them… while telling the people to shut up.. go with out, pay more and worship them at the same time. Time for a little reality check for all government workers… you SERVE ME, AND IT IS TIME YOU REALIZE YOU ARE A SERVANT!!!

    This is a Foreword from a book by Taylor Caldwell’s The Devil’s Advocate, and it is as follows.

    MY FATHER ONCE TOLD ME AN OLD SCOTTISH LEGEND which form the basis for the name of this book: THE DEVIL’S ADVOCATE.
    We Scots have long been know as a race which produces the most meticulous, eloquent and canny lawyers, and, in fact, we are sometimes designated by the English as “a race of advocates.” After theology, the Scots love law, and even a Highlander however remotely situated on his mountains is an authority on local or national statutes, and can will argue them with passionate and exhaustive interest.

    A people so devoted by nature to law have many legends about it. It seems that centuries ago the Devil was incarcerated in the gaol of an obscure Highland village, charged with various crimes against humanity. No “advocate” would at first defend him, but a scupulous judge finally appointed a lawyer for the defense. The entire hamlet was determined that the Devil be condemned, including the advocate who was a very religious man of great probity. He spent many night in desperate prayer. How could he, while maintaining his integrity as the appointed defende of the Devil, so present the case to the jury that the Devil would be condemned?

    While “defending” the Devil he must also awaken the people to the presence of evil, and its horrors, which the Devil represented. He finally hit upon a solution.
    He would reveal the Devil in all his power and his terribleness and his infamy while ostensibly defending him! He would gain the admiration of his just neighbors by an open defense, and their respect when he “lost” the case. Moreover, they would learn to recognize evil forevermore when it was exposed before all eyes.

    So, in court, he conducted the defense brilliantly. He subtly revealed to the judge and the jury and the assembled people all the potency and frightfulness of the Devil, by questioning the Devil and having him condemn himself by his own words. He adroitly brought out the fact to the people that the Devil would not be in their midst without their own guilt and the secret envies, sins and errors in their own hearts. He was able to lead the Devil to admit that his plot against mankind had no limits, and, at intervals, the advocate would exhort the people to “admire” such vast intelligence and wickedness, Stimulated by the advocate’s eloquence and apparent defense of him, the Devil became even more excessive in his expressed hatred for the world and all in it.

    The people listened with dread and guilt and fear. They remembed their sufferings under the influence of evil, and how they had contributed to the power of that evil, by way of their stupidity and their jealousy of their neighbors, and their avarice and lack of compassion.
    Then the judge charged the jury. He said: “Evil is among us because we have invited that evil. We have suffered much, but we brought upon our own sufferings. The Devil would have had no power over us except that we have given him the power. We became bondsmen because we willed it; we are in despair because we brought despair to our neighbors. We died because we acquiesced in death. We were silent when we should have spoken in behalf of our brothers. For a moment’s security we looked away when our neighbor was robbed. In behalf of a false peace we postponed a war with evil when we should not have moved from our places. At every step we compromised, when we knew there is no compromise with hell. If the Devil is guilty, we are not guiltless. In his condemnation, we are included. In a judgement against him we are also judged. May God have mercy on our souls.?
    The Devil was condemned to eternal banishment from the hamlet. However, the “advocate,” in his zeal to expose the Devil, had not reckoned with obtuseness and stupidity of his fellow citizens. They had not understood his plan at all. On the day the Devil was banished the “advocate” was hanged.

    Doc, all Obama cares about is Obama and I can’t figure out why people haven’t figured that out. He has all these give-aways at the taxpayers expense, so you will vote for him again. When, and or if, he gets in there again, then you will see the really, really true person Obama is. I am sure they are working on changing the Constitution right now so he will be able to stay in there forever and live in his estate in Hawaii when he vacations.
    I think I am not even going to vote because they already know who is going to be installed into the WH, with early voting going on right now.

    One day, there will be no one left to foot the bills because everyone will be on the government dole.

    I lived in Chicago for 20+ years, under the iron-fisted rule of Richard Daley and the unspeakable ugliness of Harold Washington. Chicago is the most corrupt city in the United States, and has been since Mayor Thompson taught everyone to “vote early and vote often.” The use of welfare (assistance) money is a way of life in Chicago. People don’t want jobs. They run from any employment that might be offered. And to maintain their welfare life they always vote for the person they are told to vote for – usually a Dimocrap (read Communist). As long as Obuma and his Chicago mob type czars and thugs are calling the shots in Washington the reality of a new USSR rising comes closer and closer. This USSR has little to do with Russia and Putin. It will be the United States Socialist Republic. Reelect the un-American, unqualified communist currently in office and the transition from a free country to an over-sized Cuba will be reality.

    • Proud American

      well said, Pete,
      obama’s plan is not a good plan for the American people and I don’t understand how anyone can vote for this anti American. If obama is reelected this country will be doom, anyone who votes for this man is voting for the death of America. I hated when I see people supporting and defending this Kenyan whose mission is to change America to a communist way of life

    To Doc Sarvis
    get your head out of your ass, moron, this president is the worst we ever had like carter. obama has made things worst for all of us. He is killing the American dream and if is up to obama he will have most Americans on Welfare.

      Jose, you are spanish, are you not? You are lucky Mitt doesn’t find you and deport you back to your true place. If he had his way, you’d be rounded up and deported to a third world country. That is the Republican plan for all of the spanish heritage people in the US. Look out for the federales.

    Why did this happen? Because we Americans turned from serving our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ & our sins are so great HE is letting us resp what we have sown. We have nobody to blame but ourselves because of our greed and sin! We must as a country repent, turn from our wicked ways, ask God to hear us and forgive our sin, and heal our land. NOW. May be too late already!
