"Why we vehemently defend President Obama. He is subjected to a level of disrespect, treachery, betrayal and sabotage from within that no other President has ever experienced. Still, he succeeds and his success makes American lives better."
I decided to use this as the basis of my post today. I'm going to make the argument about why the statement is entirely wrong, from beginning to end.
In typical liberal fashion, President Obama has been the "victim" since he was elected. Even though he got a large majority of the votes, he and others played the race card over and over against anyone who criticized him. Certainly, as I've said before, there are people in this country so blinded by racial hatred that they oppose his Presidency simply because of his skin color. But they are in a small minority. Most Americans don't care what color a politician's skin is - that was evidenced by the number of votes the President received.
In January of 2009, Mitch McConnell said his number 1 priority was to make Obama a 1-term President. Rush Limbaugh's now infamous statement "I hope he (President Obama) fails." Of course the left and the main stream (in the pocket of Obama) media decided that was racist. They ignored Obama's far left ideology. They ignored his statement that he wanted to "fundamentally change America" and his belief that "when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." McConnell and Limbaugh were referring to Obama's socialistic/Marxist type plans and ideologies when they made their statements but that's not what was portrayed by the Obama fans.
So the Republicans have been fighting Obama from day one - at least some of them. McConnell doesn't exactly stand strong on his statement. Obama, the Democrats and the media began calling the Republicans the "party of 'no'" when they opposed the fundamental changes Obama wanted to make. They opposed the "Affordable" Care Act (and rightly so) - a disastrous law that is destroying jobs, is causing millions of Americans to lose their health care coverage and their doctors, and is causing insurance premiums and deductibles to skyrocket. The bill was pushed down the throats of the American people (72% of Americans opposed it) and was passed with bribery and treachery on the part of the Democrats.
Want to talk about treachery? How about the fact that this President gave himself the authority to arrest and indefinitely detain anyone in the country at any time without due process? How about the fact that this President gave himself the authority to kill American citizens abroad for acts that he deems to be terrorism, again without due process? Is it disrespectful to oppose those things?
Want to talk about disrespect? George W. Bush was vilified, ridiculed, and hated by the left. How many movies are there about killing Obama? I've seen a few effigies dedicated to Obama but not nearly as many as there were signs and posters of Bush being killed are calling for his death. Obama disrespected? Please.
Finally - I'd like to know which Americans have better lives because of Obama. Someone please enlighten me. Unemployment is still at an all-time high. Even though the President and the media like to say unemployment is down, the number of people in the workforce has dropped to 62.8%, down 5% since 2008. So while there are a few more people working than there were last year - there are fewer people looking for work and more people on welfare and food stamps. That's not unwarranted criticism of the President. It's just fact.
A National Urban League report says that blacks in America are losing economic ground in today's society. As reported by the Huffington Post:
The report also said African-Americans are twice as likely as whites to be unemployed. The unemployment rate for blacks was 12 percent in February, compared with 5.8 percent for whites.
But Obama is supposed to be the great uniter who was going to make life better for African-Americans. He has yet to do that. Murder rates, abortion rates and single motherhood rates among black Americans continue to climb. So how has Obama made anyone's life better?
Let's not forget how he is dissecting and weakening our military. We're now disrespected by more nations on Earth than we've been since Jimmy Carter was President. Russia and China laugh at us, as does Iran. If Obama allows Iran to obtain nuclear weapons (as it appears he is) he should be tried for treason. Look at all of the generals he recently relieved of duty - supposedly because they wouldn't vow to lead American forces against the American people. And every government agency from the Department of Agriculture to NOAA is buying automatic weapons and ammunition in unbelievable amounts.
I'm sure I'll be called a racist by some for pointing out facts. So be it. I won't praise President Obama or hold back my criticism because he's black. He made history as the first black President. That's all well and good. Now he's making history by slowly destroying the United States of America. His "fundamental changes" are killing the nation we love.
Again I ask - how has he made anyone's life any better? He is succeeding, alright - succeeding in destroying America. Hopefully in November enough patriots will come out and say "ENOUGH!" Our only hope is to keep the House and take the Senate so we can stop this tyrant and take our country back. Otherwise, America as we knew it will soon be gone.
