Re: Who is Obama

Postby bcbdrums » Mon Jul 16, 2012 8:20 am

I have a unique perspective on Obama that I attribute to design by God, to help my youthful lack of understanding of politics. In my second year of college, I was assigned to read the book "Dreams From My Father" for an English course, but at that point I had no idea who Obama was. To me, he was just another author of another uninteresting book. And at age 18 I had very little interest in politics and even less education and wisdom about them. But throughout the book, two things were clear to me: the intense bitterness in his heart, and his deep interest in Islam. I had little to no knowledge of Islam at that time (but ironically, the next book I was assigned to read in that class was a novel about Islam: "The Girl in the Tangerine Scarf"; my community college certainly knew how to indoctrinate its students!) but the sense I received from the book was that Islam was evil and all about hatred and destruction, and I could see Obama drinking it all in through the pages, and his bitterness growing as he became more deeply involved with the religion.

Imagine my shock years later in 2008 when I heard that Obama was one of the Democratic nominees. I remember telling my parents that he would be the worst choice, because of his bitter heart and involvement with Islam (which I had learned much more about since my early college days). I couldn't believe it when he was elected, and that very day I closed my ears to politics. I knew the country was doomed, just from reading that book years before. And now that the election looms I've re-opened my ears to politics and found that I was entirely right. The country has slipped into a state I wouldn't have understood or even thought possible in my late teen years, and it is difficult to have faith in America anymore.

But I know that the America everyone loves still exists. The media tries to pretend it doesn't as they indoctrinate us into their "cult of indiscrimination" as Evan Sayet describes it. But I believe there are still Americans who are willing to put their foot down, and admit that we must define "right" and "wrong" and cannot continue to squeeze all the "wrongs" in this world into the category of "rights" because we might offend someone if we should happen to think differently than they do. Without right and wrong, what is there to fight for?

So who is Obama? He is the Chief of Liars in the country, possibly the world. And I will definitely be voting against him in the upcoming election.

Okay, firstly, YAY! Image

Secondly, I always love reading/listening to what he has to say.

Anyway.
I agree entirely. It's very unfortunate to hear a president lie, or anyone really, no matter who it is. Is lying something that people mistakenly (or purposefully) do from time to time? Sure! You can't condemn a person, really, for making some mistakes. But when a person so blatantly lies about so many important things, it really begins to show how that person works internally. It's like C.S. Lewis says, with all your decisions you're turning your inside self into one kind of creature or another (paraphrased). And with all Obama's lies, well... :?

I respect a person far more when they come out and say what they support, rather than milling around, subverting and lying. It shows more strength of character. But of course, he knew he couldn't do that. There's still too many people in the nation that would pause and say, "....What?" if he came out and spoke EXACTLY what he believed in, instead of going on in his roundabout manner. There are a lot of people, had they really known about him, who would not have voted in his favor--at the very least, they would have looked into him more before pressing that button (or pulling that lever).

Being young, I haven't taken part in as many election days as others, but it seemed to me that for whatever reason people were just more willing than normal to go with what they were spoon-fed about Obama. Was this because of the concentrated efforts of the media, or maybe the explosive and heavy influence of the internet in 2008? I know some young people who voted for him and when I asked why they did, they answer, "I don't know."

These pro-Obama (probama?) people just want us to...take what they say as gospel truth, no questions asked. I'm told, "Obama is a great speaker!" and when I listen to him, I wonder why George W. Bush was so heavily criticised. Obama ISN'T a great orator, quite the opposite. But we're told that it's true, so it must be so. Because all these great people on television and in the magazines must know better than my own ears, right? ....Right?

Just the other day I was listening to the radio about Obama and his spin-team still driving at Romney for "outsourcing." I laughed and began ranting aloud (to myself, since I was in the shampoo aisle doing recovery and haircare products are always willing to listen). After all the mess that Obama's dragged us into, he really thinks such a matter will deter me from voting against him?? Sure, outsourcing has caused some issues--some jobs from the factory my dad works at have moved to Mexico (but really, with as many migrant workers as they hired before that, it was the same either way *shot*). But as long as there are industrious, clever people within a healthy free-enterprise economy, there will be jobs. But is our economy going to get any healthier under Obama? Not when everyone is going to be heavily taxed for their farts.

Yay. Very interesting note by Dwight and an equally interesting thread.
I don't really have much to say re: Obama because I'm not very politically minded or knowledgeable. It's my personal opinion that all politicians will lie at some point to canvas a vote. I do believe a lot of them, regardless of party, will say things prior to or during an election and then flip-flop or back track or just flat out turn around and do something totally different if they happen to be voted into power. Maybe I'm wrong, but what I've seen from the Liberal Democrats here in the UK seems to make me think it's true.
So maybe that's why Obama lying doesn't seem so shocking to me.

Postby MizHowlinMad » Mon Jul 16, 2012 2:30 pm

First of all, many thanks to Dwight for the first of what we hope is many of these Howling Mad Notes.

It's hard to disagree here. Obama's life, as well as his political life, have been built on a foundation of lies. Why is it that even now, almost a full term into his presidency, NOBODY has any idea what he was doing in college? Nobody has any transcripts? Nobody seems to remember him from back then? It used to be SOP for presidential candidates to be fully vetted, to the point where journalists would dig up who they were dating when they were 19 or what they had for lunch on a specific day in 1989. Not so with Obama, which only makes me think there's something major he's hiding (ie he really was born outside the US, he is a practicing Muslim, a card-carrying Communist).

Over the years I've come to expect most politicians to lie. With Obama, that's all he does. I can't put my trust in such a president (though as we discussed in the other thread, I still have respect for the office of the presidency). To me it all smells horribly of a Manchurian Candidate conspiracy...and when you consider who America's great enemies are right now, with China (Communist), Iran (Islamist), Russia (military autocracy)...it seems to make perfect sense that they'd want a guy sympathetic to them.

I'm no great fan of Romney, but at this point I'll vote for anyone if it means Obama is a one-termer.

What a nice surprise to log on and see the first note!

I'll be the first to admit, the thought of socialist ideals crossed my mind when Obama first came on the scene, but I dismissed them thinking I was being too paranoid. Certainly, no one could have designs to destroy the country from within so deliberately. How naive I was.

Sadly, we've become accustomed to politicians lying like they breathe. Usually, it is about more inane things (My personal favorite of recent history was "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" :D ) But this is on a much grander scale - and by design. Why do I feel like a pawn in a gigantic game of chess?

I wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment. And that may be the only hope come November, that those who were on the fence in 2008 and are angered by the turn of events, will vote the other way just because it's not Obama.

Thank you, Dwight, for the first of many (I hope) of these Howling Mad Notes.

Before I get going, please understand I'm operating on less than a full cup of coffee right now so I may not be able to put together as eloquent a statement as the ladies before me (You all did a wonderful job at it and there's nothing much more to add. I was very impressed with your statements.) I tend to ramble anyway. Please forgive me if I do.

Liars manage to lie so much that eventually one lie fails to cover another. The network of lies is complex, like a spider's web. And liars do generally attract more like them to their circle of friends. (Although in that kind of circle, each one has to watch their back to make sure he isn't "thrown under the bus" when a lie is exposed.) All you have to do is look at Eric Holder and the "Fast and Furious" debacle and the actions and words of other Obama appointees to positions of power to realize what kind of man this President is. And remember, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was linked to socialism long before this President was in office. (One of the quotations ascribed to her is "'The money has to go to the federal government because the federal government will spend that money better than the private sector will spend it.'”)

Why is a man seemingly so hell-bent on driving America to the point of collapse, possibly anarchy and martial law as a result, voted into office? Why do some when asked why they voted for him seem to not know why? Maybe they're more interested in who wins American Idol than in digging for truth?

How many people know who Nadye Suleman is but don't know who Arne Duncan (Secretary of the Department of Education) or Ray LaHood (Secretary of the Department of Transportation) are? Yet these Obama appointees shape the policy for their respective departments and, by that, shape how we live our lives.

If you want to know a man, take careful note of who he has as his closest friends and advisers. The Washington Post has compiled a list of the President's appointees. There are 419 confirmed, 30 nominated and 5 announced appointees. The list includes brief biographical information on each appointee. Plug "Obama appointees" into a search box to find that page. Go beyond those biographies and find out what kind of success they had in that sphere prior to their appointment. Plug their individual names into search engine boxes and start reading. Find out what kind of policies have been instituted since they took office in their respective departments.

I don't know if links are allowed in this particular section so I'm just going to suggest plugging the words "Obama lies" into the search box to see the scope of falsehoods the man has been accused of. At least one organization has kept a list. Now some of those are failed campaign promises but if you are certain you can't deliver something as promised doesn't that become a lie? Or am I wrong? And if you promise one thing to one group and then promise something to another group that contradicts the other promise, don't both promises become lies?
You're the best figment my imagination ever had.

Very interesting notes by Dwight and equally interesting to read your comments, girls. I know Obama's policy only through the reading of newspapers and television news.
I can only say that, here where I live, after the lies of politicians, often a series of shameful scandals follow, and almost always the politician in office does not even have the good sense to resign from his task ... Perhaps 'Good sense' isn't the right word, I should have said 'Sense of Dignity'!

I'm sorry, I am not American and I don't know about Obama and I can't say anything about him, but I think, our Putin lies much more than your Obama :)
Dwight, thank you very much for your Notes!

As disturbing as Obama is, quite honestly I find it far more frightening that so many people actually believe him. That our media supports his agenda, and that the people supporting the Constitution are seen as the enemies of the state.

The reason that so many people still suport him, really, is that they believe the media without thinking on their own. They let all the subtle and not-so-subtle propaganda seep into their brains... Most people if they don't let themselves think about it will believe anything that's fed to them long enough, especially if it's from what they consider a reliable source. To me it isn't so much why they believe him--he's the president, and they're the news, one's inclined to WANT to believe them. It's more of...why don't they see all the contradictions? Why aren't they CEASING to believe him? Why aren't they seeing him as a fraud again and again...?

Talking about propaganda, have you seen that item about a kiss camera at I believe a sport event? It was all over our show news that Obama kissed his wife and they looked such happy and nice married couple.........oh aren't they nice people. YUCK.

Thank you so much, Dwight, for saying what I and many conservatives -- including talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Sean Hannity -- have also come to believe. Please keep expressing yourself on matters such as these, as it is incredibly refreshing!

I think what is scaring me the most about President Obama is he doesn't want to be president. He wants to be dicatator and I am very afraid that if he makes it a second term he will get them to get rid of, or rewrite the Constitution so that he can continue being president. He is making it very clear that he thinks the Constitution is out-dated and unnecessary and he is ready to change it completely, so where does he stop and when do we quit blindly letting him do these things?? I don't know why the American people are letting the media get away with raising him above the foundations that this country was founded on and become this thing that he has become. He has no experience to be president and should never have made it this far!! I just don't get it. :shrug: If it was a Republican trying to do the same thing? They would wipe the floor with him and say "no! you can't be president. You weren't born here, you don't have any experience." But that just went by the wayside for him. I don't get it, but I think it is scary and I worry for our country if this keeps going the way it has been these past four years!!!
