At a time when many Americans can barely afford
Burger King and a movie, Obama boasts of spending a billion
dollars on his re-election campaign. Questioned at a recent
appearance about the spiraling fuel costs, Obama said, "Get used
to it" and with an insouciant grin and chortle, he told
another person at the event, who complained about the effect high
fuel prices were having on his family, to "get a more fuel-efficient car."
The Obamas behave as if they were sharecroppers living in a trailer and hit the
Powerball, but instead of getting new tires for their trailer and
a new pickup truck, they moved to Washington . And instead of
making possum pie, with goats and chickens in the front yard,
they're spending and living large at taxpayer expense opulent
vacations, gala balls, resplendent dinners and exclusive command
performances at the White House, grand date nights, golf,
basketball, more golf, exclusive resorts and still more golf. In
the 1950's they called it acting NIGGER RICH.
Expensive, ill-fitting and ill-chosen wigs and fashions hardly befit the
first lady of the United States . The Obamas have behaved in every
way but presidential which is why it's so offensive when we
hear Obama say, in order "to restore fiscal responsibility, we all
need to share in the sacrifice but we don't have to sacrifice the
America we believe in."
The American people have been sacrificing; it is he and his family who are
behaving as if they've never had two nickels to rub together and now, having
hit the mother lode, they're going to spend away their feelings of
inadequacy at the taxpayers' expense.
Obama continues to exhibit behavior that, at best, can be described as mobocratic
and, at worst, reveals a deeply damaged individual. In a February
2010 column, I asked, "Is Obama unraveling? "I wrote that it was
beginning to appear the growing mistrust of him and contempt for
his policies was beginning to have a destabilizing effect on him.
At that time, I wrote that not having things go one's way can be a bitter
pill, but reasonable people don't behave as he was behaving. He
had insulted Republicans at their luncheon, where he had been an
invited guest. I had speculated that was, in part, what had led
him to falsely accuse Supreme Court justices before Congress, the
nation and the world, during the 2010 State of the Union address.
It appeared, at that time, as if he were "fraying around the
emotional edges." That behavior has not abated it has
become more pronounced. While addressing the nation, after being
forced to explain the validity of his unilateral aggression with
Libya , America witnessed a petulant individual scowling and
scolding the public for daring to insist he explain his actions.
But during an afternoon speech to address the budget/debt, he took his
scornful, unstable despotic behavior to depths that should give
the nation cause for concern. Displaying a dark psychopathy more
representative of an episode of "The Tudors" television series, he
invited Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to sit in the front row during his
speech and then proceeded to berate both Ryan and Ryan's
budget-cutting plan. Even liberal Democrats were put off by the
act. MSNBC's Joe Scarborough questioned the sanity of Obama's
Today, criticism is coming from all sides. A senior Democrat lawmaker said, "I have
been very disappointed in [Obama], to the point where I'm
embarrassed that I endorsed him. It's so bad that some of us are
thinking, is there some way we can replace him? How do you get rid
of this guy?" ("Democrats' Disgust with Obama," The Daily Beast, April 15, 2011)
Steve McCann wrote: Obama's speech "was chock full of lies, deceit and crass
fear-mongering. It must be said that [he] is the most dishonest,
deceitful and mendacious person in a position of power I have ever
witnessed" ("The Mendacity of Barack Obama,"AmericanThinker.com , April 15, 2011).
McCann continued: "[His] performance was the culmination of four years of outright
lies and narcissism that have been largely ignored by the media,
including some in the conservative press and political class who
are loath to call [him] what he is in the bluntest of terms: a
liar and a fraud. That he relies on his skin color to intimidate,
either outright or by insinuation [against] those who oppose his
radical agenda only add to his audacity. It is apparent that he
has gotten away with his character flaws his entire life, aided
and abetted by sycophants around him. ..."
With these being among the kinder rebukes being directed at Obama, and with people
becoming less intimidated by his willingness to use race as a
bludgeon, with falling poll numbers in every meaningful category
and an increasingly aggressive tea-party opposition how much longer before he
The coming months of political life are not going to be pleasant for Obama.
Possessed by a self-perceived palatine mindset, that in his mind
places him above criticism, how long before he cracks in public?
Can America risk a man with a documented track record of lying and
misrepresenting truth as a basic way of life, who is becoming
increasingly more contumelious?
