As we reported yesterday, President Barack Obama is the 2010 “Most Admired Man In America,” according to a Gallup poll.
He was followed, in order, by former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, former African President Nelson Mandela and Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Interesting choices all, and they demonstrate one of two things. Either there is a dearth of people to admire or the masses are clueless about who these people really are.
Obama is a Marxist and former member of an American socialist party (a fact conveniently overlooked by the mainstream media) and a union tool who was not properly vetted, was ill-prepared and probably ineligible to hold the office of the President. Bush is a faux conservative One Worlder who bloated our government with social spending, stole our freedoms with the USA PATRIOT Act and other tyrannical legislation and embarked on a campaign of expanding empire America. Clinton is a serial adulterer, accused rapist, convicted perjurer and tool of the Bilderbergers. Nelson Mandela is a former terrorist — of course one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter (see Bill Ayers) — and long-time socialist whose claim to fame is he spent 27 years in prison and was subsequently given god-like status by Leftists and the mainstream media upon his release. Bill Gates is a One Worlder, Bilderberger and promoter of mass vaccination — something those brainwashed by Big Pharma propaganda and the mainstream media think is a good thing — who believes the world’s population should be reduced (of course, no Gates would ever turn up on a list of those to be reduced, just Smiths, Joneses, Taylors and some third world names we can’t spell or pronounce).
Reading about the poll got me to thinking: If Gallup polled me — which they didn’t, nor have they ever — who would I name? It took a while, but I decided on newly-elected Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky.
All he did was defeat the Republican establishment in the Kentucky Senate primary and then the whole political establishment in the November election. And he did so with a cool aplomb while being savagely attacked on spurious charges of racism and kookery, never raising his voice or looking the least bit defensive. Despite the rantings of mainstream Republicans like Michael Steele and Mitch McConnell and raving Leftists like Mara Liasson, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann, Rand remained a statesman, responding to invective with rational, coherent arguments.
Here’s hoping Rand’s dad Ron Paul makes a run at the Presidency in 2012. If he’s unsuccessful, Rand will be primed and ready by 2016.
