A NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM…OH, REALLY?…

Posted on January 27, 2009. Filed under: News And Politics... |

 
I’m probably the only person in America who didn’t watch the inauguration.  I guess it’s because I’ve seen his face on magazine covers, newspapers and TV for the past two years, and right now it’s Obama overload for me.  I didn’t even watch the news for two days after the inauguration.  I was getting sick to seeing the media salivate and pee their pants over the overated Obama.  Maybe I needed a mini vacation from Obamanation.  I did hear an earful from friends who told me some of the goings on during the festivities.  Tom Brokaw was quoted as saying that "Obama will be among the top 10 presidents of all time."  Really?  He hasn’t done anything yet, and they want to put him on that pedestal again.  That’s just like giving someone a gold medal before they have had a chance to compete and prove himself/herself.  Since when do we congratulate someone for something they haven’t yet accomplished?  Some people are insane.  I did watch a little of the news today and what did I see?  Some journalist asking a black woman how she feels about Obama being our president.  She actually said (really dramatizing it), "I’m so happy!  Now I can put gas in my car and my mortgage will be paid."  What???  I think that some people have this weird notion that now that Obama is on the scene, we’re all going to magically get all our bills paid.  It’s insane!  I’ve never seen anything like it!  If you have read my past blogs about Obama, you can see why I’m not buying what he’s been selling.
 
It just infuriates me that here is a guy who has zero experience, a past checkered with bad associations, no legal birth certificate stating he was born in the USA, and he’s now our 44th president.  Obama says he wants to "return to open and transparent government".  He promised to run the most transparent White House in history—disclosing donations, shunning lobbyists, and broadcasting important meetings on C-SPAN.  Oh, really?  I’m still waiting for him to fork over his original birth certificate…the one with the seal affixed to it, not the shoddy counterfeit one he tried to pass on to us as legitimate.  He’s now hiring lobbyists and waiving his own rules.  What a guy!  Try and go against him and you’ll be labeled the "R" word.
 

Another thing…there’s his lack of willingness to discuss at length, and have records released of, activities he was involved in during the time he served as a State Senator in Illinois.  Jim Geraghty writes:

"Just to review, the public cannot get access to paperwork related grants distributed by then-state-legislator Obama (records from 1997 to 2000 aren’t available); his state legislative office records (which he says ‘may have been thrown out’); he refuses to release a specific list of law clients, instead giving a list of all of his firm’s clients, numbering several hundred each year; he won’t release his application to the state bar (where critics wonder if he lied in responding to questions about parking tickets and past drug use); he’s never released any legal or billing records to verify that he only did a few hours of work for a nonprofit tied to convicted donor Rezko; and he’s never released any medical records, just a one-page letter from his doctor."

Now the University of Illinois at Chicago is denying Stanley Kurtz access to documents relating to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a small foundation, founded and inspired by Bill Ayers, for which Obama served as board chairman.
 
From what I see, it’s been nothing but a media frenzy on who can kiss Obama’s butt the best.  He hasn’t accomplished a thing, and yet he has captivated an entire country (well, almost).  People ask me how I feel about him, and if you know me, you know I tell them the truth.  When I ask them what has he accomplished, I hear the same thing over and over again…"he brought us all together and he’s promoting change".  Really?  There is still hatred, murder, suicide, war, poverty and a downward spiraling economy in this country.  It didn’t magically disappear after he took office.  Granted, there is a lot of love in this country as well, but he had nothing to do with that.  We have done that on our own.  If you ask me, his presidency is bringing more racism than I have ever seen in my life.  If you stop and think about it, Hitler had millions of followers, too.  He talked a good game, and look at the kind of guy he turned out to be.  Now, I’m not calling Obama, Hitler.  All I’m saying is there are some similarities here, which I pointed out in a previous blog.  The power that Hitler received from his followers embedded something sinister inside of him.  It happens to a lot of men who receive a lot of power.  I’ve seen it, not to that magnitude, but when some men gain power, they change—their testosterone level goes into the stratosphere.  Just look at what corporate greed does to CEOs.  Hmmm…there’s that word again…change.  Obama will change, too.  You mark my words.  All this media hype and the adoring fan club that surrounds him will change him.  Look at what happens to celebrities once they reach stardom.  They go from a humble person to a greedy monster.  It happens all the time.  Obama has a lot of gall to compare himself to Abraham Lincoln, one of the most accomplished presidents of all time.  President Lincoln was the epitome of humility and quiet strength.  Obama is the exact opposite, and couldn’t even hold a candle to President Lincoln.
 
One thing you have to say about Bush, he was a humble guy who brought dignity back into the White House, and his wife, Laura, brought grace into it.  Say what you want about Bush, you can’t deny that he kept us safe for the 7 years after September 11th.  Obama, on the other hand, even needed help reciting his oath how the heck is he going to run this country?  When he couldn’t remember all the words that were put in front of him by Chief Justice Roberts, he was given a free pass by the media and his obamabots who blamed the Chief Justice for misplacing the word "faithfully".  If you watch the first video, you can clearly see that Obama had too many words in front of him to remember and that’s what made him stop short, it wasn’t the word "faithfully".  Obama’s "pregnant pause" is what caused the Chief Justice to screw up, not the other way around.  I did notice that Michelle purses her lips when he screws up.  Some Obamabots actually think that Obama stopped reciting his oath because the Justice didn’t use the word "faithfully" in the proper place.  Please!  Can someone please knock some sense into these freakazoids?
 
In the second video, there was just audio which tells me that this time around, he was probably put in front of his best friend, the teleprompter [where he does best] to recite his oath.  Why wasn’t a bible used for the repeat performance?  Couldn’t he have sent one of his Obamabots to go "fetch" one from the library which was probably just a stone’s throw away from where he was standing?  It’s just sickening how people fall all over him and cover up for him when he screws up.  I thought the way people fall all over celebrities was bad—this is 100 times worse!  Time for the Obamedia to do their jobs and reveal the real Obama, not the airbrushed version they want us to see.  Airbrushing may work for celebrity pictures, but in the real world, the president should be out, front and center.  Journalism has really tanked with this administration, and journalistic integrity is now just a fond memory.  Professional integrity used to be the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility, so what happened?
 
Despite the admiration and positive press he gets from the Obamedia, the euphoria is beginning to wane in less than a week in office.  His approval ratings have fallen from a stratospheric 83% to a more modest 68%.  Hmmm…
 
One news story that shocked me was the story about a middle school in Billerica.  Apparently, the class was watching the inauguration on TV and some kids booed when Obama stepped up to the podium.  Those same kids received detention, and all they were booing was the TV.  Kids who don’t know any better get detention, yet the adults who do know better and who booed when Bush was introduced at the inauguration, gets a free pass from the press and Obama.  Welcome to Obamanation…Land of the subjugated, Home of the corrupt.
