Yet another day comes to pass where I ask myself, “How in the HELL did this nation bestow the honor and privilege of serving as President of the United States upon a man like Barack Obama?” It is beyond sensible comprehension. And the latest remarks from this detached and disconnected man are the latest to prove, without a shadow of doubt, that contention. In a recent interview with The New Yorker:
Now, THAT, is TRULY frightening!
Here we have a sitting president, presiding over discourse, economic stagnation and malaise, and general frustration like this nation has never seen…AND THIS sort of thinking is his explanation!
Let’s take a look at what the REALITY of the national situation is, shall we?!….
Love him or hate him, radio talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, put it PERFECTLY when he said this on his Monday (Jan. 20) show:
“Obama said that racial tensions may have softened his popularity among white voters within the last two years, according to a story posted on the New Yorker magazine’s website today….”
“‘There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,’ Obama said in the article…” So, what, white Americans have just figured out Obama’s black in the last two years? This is classic. This is really classic. It can’t possibly be that people don’t like Obamacare. It can’t possibly have anything to do with the fact that Obama lied to them numerous times for three years that if they like their doctor or like their plan, they can keep it….
It has nothing to do with the fact that nobody can find a job, nothing to do with the fact the stimulus didn’t work, nothing to do with the fact that he’s engaged in crony capitalism, nothing to do with the fact that his green energy things have bombed out, nothing to do with the fact that he is usurping the Constitution at each and every he have turn, nothing to do with the fact that he’s never accepted accountability for anything and has always blamed it on Bush.
It has nothing to do with the fact that nothing is ever his fault, nothing to do with the fact that even after five years he still governs as an outsider. Nope! “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president.” This is the same kind of ego I was just talking about. This guy thinks he’s the creme de la creme. He’s the best that there’s ever been! It cannot be him.
In his world, by the way, his ideas haven’t even failed.
Listen to this. I’m gonna read to you a brief excerpt from this piece by David Remnick in the New Yorker. “As Obama ticked off a list of first-term achievements — the economic rescue, the forty-four straight months of job growth, a reduction in carbon emissions, a spike in clean-energy technology — he seemed efficient but contained, running at three-quarters speed, like an athlete playing a midseason road game of modest consequence.”
Now, folks, this is derangement!…”
“As Obama ticked off a list of first-term achievements — the economic rescue.” There hasn’t been an economic rescue, folks. You know it and I know it. The economy is in a funk. It’s showing no signs of recovery and it hasn’t for five years. There hasn’t been an economic rescue. An economic rescue is exactly what’s needed by way of a new president. But yet he ticks this off, he rescued the economy. I guess that must be the stimulus. And here’s David Remnick, yep, okay, so there has to be some reason, then, because Obama’s done great with the economy. Approval numbers still plummeting. Forty-four straight months of job growth. He said it. He ticked it off. The reporter quoted him. The reporter agrees, 44 straight months of job growth.
Folks, there are 92 million Americans not working. The number of Americans in the labor force continues to shrink. The labor force participation rate is plummeting. There haven’t been 44 months of job growth. There haven’t been three months of job growth, because there isn’t any job growth. But yet, Obama’s sitting in the White House, and he’s telling himself all this wonderful stuff is happening. Rescued the economy, 44 straight months of job growth, a reduction in carbon emissions. There isn’t a reduction. Well, if there is a reduction in carbon emissions, it is for one reason, and that is the depressed economy. Natural gas helps a little bit, too, but Obama’s energy ideas have been an abject failure.
Every foray into green energy, be it wind or solar, is a joke. Speaking of which, I don’t want to make anybody mad here, but you know Brad Pitt and his wife Angelina Jolie, they’re big environmentalist wackos, and they’ve been rebuilding houses in New Orleans under green guidelines. It turns out that the wood that they have been using that has been sanctioned and authorized as good wood in terms of the environment, is rotting. Yes, it’s true, Mabel. It’s a sad, sad thing.
A spike in clean energy technology? There hasn’t been any of that, folks, other than natural gas which is the result of fracking, which is creating more oil, despite Obama’s efforts to stop it. Now, it literally is delusional. But if he’s sitting there lost in his own fantasy of what a great job he’s been doing, great economy, great job growth, economic rescue, giant, great strides on improving the economy, and his approval numbers are falling, it has to be that Americans just don’t like a black president.
Obamacare, we haven’t even talked about that. He probably thinks he’s improved the health care in this country left and right. By the way, another executive order on Obamacare outside the Constitution has been delayed for another year because to implement it would be very harmful for the Democrats going into the election. …”
Now, this business with Obama, I maintain this is serious. I maintain this is psychologically serious. You have to remember he utters this stuff to the New Yorker, it gets picked up by every left-wing publication, and the low-information crowd’s gonna eat this stuff up. So Obama’s basically saying he’s done great things, he’s rebuilt the economy, 44 straight months of job growth, we got all kinds of great new green energy things. He’s basically just lying through his teeth about the greatness of this country and how great he’s been. And none of it’s true. None of it is true. And then he’s asked to explain his plummeting approval numbers in light of all those great things. It’s gotta be racism. This, folks, I’m telling you is, I think, potentially dangerous.
I know everybody in politics lies at one time or another, but this… We have strayed so far from the truth in so much of our public life and political life that people are losing faith in all of it, which is somewhat understandable. And when that happens, when people lose faith in it, they just tune it out. And when that happens, it just paves the way for the totalitarians. It just paves the way for the statists who just want to assume control. The greatest thing they can do is create such frustration and so forth in the public, that they just tune out all this stuff because they don’t believe any of it.
This is not a racist country. That doesn’t explain Obama’s approval numbers. No. You know, Mr. President, there are 92 million able-bodied Americans out of the workforce, and not all of them want to be, sir. And there probably a lot of Americans who dislike being lied to by you for three years. Remember the lies about lower insurance premiums by $2,500 and keeping your insurance plan and your doctor? Now, those are abject presidential lies. And, Mr. President, I’m sure there are a lot of people that dislike the idea of you and your secretary of state leaving the American consulate in Benghazi unprotected and undefended. Four Americans dead, and you lie about a video causing the attack?
A lot of Americans just don’t believe you anymore. They’ve just totally lost faith in you. You sick the IRS on decent Americans, and people find out about this. But, no, no, no, that, because Obama’s living in his fantasy land where he’s the greatest president ever, and it’s just those bitter clingers. Bitter clinger pro-life racist pigs. That’s the only reason why his approval numbers are plummeting…”
Rush is right! THIS President has lost his grasp on reality. At least that’s how it appears! He’s shifted further and further away from focusing on REAL solutions to REAL problems and closer and closer to this delusional blame game! We have lost leadership in this nation and Barack Obama continues to exacerbate the struggle by shrugging responsibility for HIS job, HIS policies, and HIS agenda! This is scary, scary stuff!….
