Obama looked like a particularly shady used car salesman during his ‘believe me ObamaCare is great – call now to get yours right away! operators are standing by’ publicity stunt at the White House. It was the Barack Obama we’ve known for so long.
Obama used the White House as if is was a parking lot full of clunkers for which he could squeeze cash from the gullible. It was a nauseating spectacle of dishonesty and bad performance with a side geek show of a fainting prop.
It was the same old Barack Obama we described in April 2007 and since: a flim-flam con man pitching scams for self-advancement and profit. The Barack Obama con was obvious to us from the first even as we laid out markers for how he could prove us wrong. However as every day passed and Obama danced the Music Man flim flam con job without answering basic questions about himself or his positions we knew our analysis of him was, to mangle a phrase popularized by such as the Black Panthers, “right on”.
So filthy was Barack Obama that we veered from our normal practice to “get over” the primaries after a loss and immediately endorse the winner so that we could all focus with unity our attacks against the “RethugliKKKlan” nominee. We knew that a broken tea cup, or is it a broken coffee cup now that the Tea Party is a target of rage among the Obama cult, would be better as president that Barack Obama.
We can recall quite vividly hearing from people we respected the notion sold by Obama’s campaign apparatus that Obama reminded them of Kennedy. Yes, people we respected actually regurgitated the notion to us in private that JFK is what they saw when they looked at the Chicago scam artist. How can respect be maintained when such foolishness is revealed, such weakness of thought?
As the years proceeded it got worse. More of the once sensible came to the defense of Barack Obama and you could not argue with them because they were so ignorant and in such high numbers that no matter how much Barack Obama proved himself an enemy of what they proclaimed to be their principles they would concoct new and more twisted outlandish reasons to excuse the Chicago flim-flam con man. We were in an asylum and had to walk out.
We always wondered about the sincerity of those Obama defenders. We were not sure if there was some personal animosity or secret hatreds that motivated them because we simply could not believe that people we once knew to be sensible kept muttering stupidities as gospel truth. They would get angry and angrier the more their “facts” and cheap opinions were contradicted by logic, facts, and overall reality. We just simply could not believe that the once sensible so swiftly fell to madness. But this week we finally accept that these voting fools are sincere in their stupidity (this does not necessarily apply to our “higher up” friends who know Obama for what he is but they are part of the machine and jobs for friends and family, if not money for themselves or there businesses, are the motivation in spewing defenses of Obama).
We came to accept the sincerety of many Obama defenders thanks to an article from some Obama voting whiner who is upset about ObamaCare and the lies told by Obama to pass his scam. Here’s the opener from a second year medical student at Harvard Medical School(!) called Nathaniel P. Morris:
“(CNN) — I’m reading a terribly sad book these days. It’s a book that I thought would uplift me during the doldrums of second-year medical school, and renew in me a sense of hope. It’s called “The Audacity to Win,” and it’s a memoir of Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.
When I’m finished with my patient write-ups at night and get into bed, the book returns me to a time when politics inspired millions and speeches could take your breath away. The election turned out to be a landslide, and news anchors paused to reflect on the historic nature of the hour.
My classmates cried with joy, and my parents saved every newspaper they could find. A young team of visionaries was headed for the White House, and the nation was ready for change. During Obama’s transition to office in 2008, he had an 82% approval rating. There was something in the air.
And then I close the book. Cutting to the present is a rude awakening, like snapping out of a dream. It’s hard to remember those days of optimism — they seem a distant memory, a sad reminder of opportunities gone by. Change indeed happened, in the years since I cast my first ballot. It was simply nothing I could have imagined.”
Something was in the air alright. It was the smell of Chicago corruption come to town fresh from the stockyards filled with death. That’s now we recall the election of the Chicago flim-flam con man Barack Obama.
Perhaps academically able Nathaniel will grow up into an intelligent Dr. Morris. But we doubt it. Stupid doesn’t grow on trees, it has to be cultivated and nurtured from within. Don’t blame youthful naiveté either. There were and are plenty of young people who demonstrated intelligence in 2008 and 2012 and rejected Barack Obama. These young people, like their sensible elders, might not have been the most academically credentialed but they had street smarts.
If you have “street smarts” you are immune to the flim-flam con men. People with street smarts can see the con coming and going. Those like Nathaniel who lack street smarts will continue to fall for the three card monte dealers and the flim flam con men all their lives, well after they believe they have finally learned their lesson and been healed and wizened. Like alcoholics they will never be fully “cured”. And for now, dear old Nathaniel is still making excuses for Barack Obama, even as he experiences a few brief moments of clarity:
“But, after the countless times in which I have found myself defending the Obama administration to colleagues and peers, I’ve reached a limit to the explanations that I can provide. I’ve reached a point of political despair.
Republican obstructionism cannot explain allowing the bugging of foreign leaders, nor having drones strike innocent children overseas. It cannot explain having the National Security Agency collect data on the private lives of Americans, nor prosecuting whistle-blowers who reveal government wrongdoing. It cannot account for assassinating Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen, without a trial, nor shirking public funding and spending limits during presidential campaigns.
It cannot justify the findings of a report that says the White House’s efforts to silence the media are the “most aggressive … since the Nixon Administration”.
And, most recently, it cannot excuse the failure to design a simple website more than three years since the Affordable Care Act was signed into law.
I don’t know if this is what I should have expected. If, at 18 years old, I was supposed to figure out that governance may contradict the political campaigns that precede it. Obviously, elective office isn’t a predictable course, as the opposing political party and random events, such as the Newtown massacre, will shape our public conversation. Yet, of all of the examples that I have listed above, they largely seem to be of the administration’s own choosing. That is what troubles me most of all.”
Dear Nate needs to get over the risible “I was young” excuses and tell himself “I was fooled. I am a fool. I believed a Chicago flim-flam con man. I will never vote again because I cannot be trusted with my nation’s present or future. I will dedicate myself to overturning the harm I have done to my country with my foolishness. I apologize to those I derided and attacked for opposing Barack Obama from the start – they were right. I was wrong – to the detriment of my country and its citizens.”
At this moment Nate is just a few miles away from his first step towards recovery. Many Obama Hopium guzzlers are further away. But there is some hope always that some of the drunks and addicts can be saved:
“Poll: 71% of Voters Believe Obama Knew Premiums Would Skyrocket For Some Americans
A new Rasmussen poll finds that an overwhelming majority of voters think the president probably lied to them about his “signature achievement”, and would like to see it scrapped or changed.
Asked how likely it is that Obama or senior officials in his administration were aware long before ObamaCare was implemented, that health insurance costs would go up for some, 71 percent of voters responded that “it’s at least somewhat likely.”
When the vast majority of American voters can agree they were lied to in order pass a controversial bill on a party line vote that amounts to a takeover of nearly 1/6 of the economy, and a large percent of them say, yeah, so what? – Our country is in deep trouble. According to Rasmussen, 48% of Likely U.S. Voters still approve of Obama’s job performance. Unbelievable.
Only 18 percent want Obamacare to continue on as it is. 43% want it repealed and started over from scratch, and another 35% want Congress to fix it in a piecemeal fashion. That’s a total of 78% who want to see either a complete do-over, or major fixes.
So – Obama blatantly lied to us in order to pass his “signature achievement” which has turned out to be a major debacle most people want scrapped or changed….Good job, Mr. President! You’re “historic!”
It should be 100% that know Barack Obama lied to all of us in order to pass ObaminationCare. But we’ll look at the glass as 70-80% full and not 30% or more empty. They will learn in the school of hard knocks reality:
As Big Media Obama defender Charles Cook writes in a rare detour into Obama reality street, a credibility gap can harm an office occupant:
“Obama’s Credibility Is At Risk
The troubled health care rollout and disclosures that the NSA spied on allies have damaged the public’s view of the president’s ability to do his job.
President Obama’s allies are alternately wincing over, or shaking their heads at, the troubled rollout of the Affordable Care Act and its website, as well as disclosures that U.S. intelligence agencies spied on some of our closest allies. Many of the president’s supporters are probably wishing they could avoid watching news programs altogether, hoping the damaging reports will just go away. The eavesdropping on the cell-phone conversations of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President François Hollande (the latter heading the only European nation supportive of the initial U.S. plan for airstrikes on Syria) has been particularly hard to defend because it puts the United States (and Obama) in an enormously awkward position.
What makes these problems more troublesome than some other controversies is that they go to the question of Obama’s competence, rather than to differences of policy or ideology. On policy disputes, one side may like a decision and the other may dislike it, often resulting in a political wash. However, competence issues cut across the partisan and ideological spectrum, and they can have a real impact on independents and moderates. [snip]
On Monday night, Daily Show host Jon Stewart framed the White House line that Obama was “out of the loop,” or unaware of the surveillance of allies, by noting, “There appear to be very few loops he’s in.” [snip]
Doubts about competence inflict damage, particularly if they are followed by other incidents that reinforce those doubts and by a vigilant opposition party flagging these miscues, as Republicans can be counted on to do here. Doubts about competence eat at enthusiasm among your base and alienate the moderates and independents who are really the ones determining whether a president has strong job-approval ratings (and note that high ratings translate into clout on Capitol Hill and, to a certain extent, around the world).”
Would you buy a used car from Barack Obama? We know “Cash For Clunkers” was a complete waste of money and yet another Obama scam. Yet when asked Obama comes up with another excuse and changes the topic.
As failure upon failure is exposed with ObaminationCare even some Obama Hopium guzzlers notice Obama ran a flim-flam con man con job. But Obama (and his Big Media guard) just comes up with new lies, new excuses, to fleece the flock. Obama’s repeated lies before and after the 2012 election assuring Americans who liked their health care insurance that nothing in ObamaCare would take that insurance away recently were explained away by Obama with another series of lies. We were not surprised.
In 2012 we wrote The Video Mitt Romney Better Watch. What is happening to America with Obama lies and then lies denying the lies and calling the truth tellers “liars” is all too familiar to us. Recall 2008:
CLINTON: Well, I couldn’t agree more. But I do think that your record and what you say does matter. And when it comes to…
… a lot of the issues that are important in this race, it is sometimes difficult to understand what Senator Obama has said, because as soon as he is confronted on it, he says that’s not what he meant. [snip]
Now, why is this important? It’s important because I think elections are about the future. But how do you determine what will happen in the future? Well, you have to look to the record, you have to look to what we say in campaigns, and what we have done during our careers.
And I want to be just very explicit about this. We are not, neither my campaign nor anyone associated with it, are in any way saying you did not oppose the war in Iraq.
You did. You gave a great speech in 2002 opposing the war in Iraq. That was not what the point of our criticism was.
It was after having given that speech, by the next year the speech was off your Web site. By the next year, you were telling reporters that you agreed with President Bush in his conduct of the war. And by the next year, when you were in the Senate, you were voting to fund the war time after time after time.
So it was more about the distinction between words and action. And I think that is a fair assessment for voters to make.
Like a corrupt, lying, used car salesman, Barack Obama’s word on anything is worth nothing. Don’t expect a corrupt, lying, used car salesman like Barack Obama to live up to the warranty on his clunkers. He just can’t be trusted:
“Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.”
Don’t trust him. Don’t buy a used car from Barack Obama. Don’t buy anything Barack Obama is selling.
