The durability of the “hopenchange” movement is still solid as ever. While I was away I ran into quite a few Obamabots. Believe me, Virginia has consumed the Kool Aid to the last drop. What happened to them?
Most peculiar was the intolerance of the liberals I ran into who failed to let me speak my mind. “We like you Afrocity and we want it to stay that way…so lets not talk politics.”
A woman tipsy off bad Merlot, could smell my conservative stench of self reliance a mile away.
“I LIKE BARACK OBAMA AND MICHELLE TOO.”
I looked at her thinking yes and my concern about your feelings on that would be… Stupidity expresses itself in the strangest ways especially when you are the sort of person that feels another person supports Barack Obama because they share the same skin color.
“HE IS SO ARTICULATE AND SPEAKS SO WELL.”
I have tried as much as possible to get way from this sort of Obama Philius moonbat but there are so many of them. Do these people realize how ignorant they appear when they gush all over Obama’s speaking abilities? You would think he was a talking Scooby dog. Here give ’em a Scooby snack. Within this analogy between Obama and the grovelling overgrown puppy, the puppy could either be Obama or the Obamabot. I think they occasionally switch roles screwing each other over. One becomes the giver and the other the receiver. In the case of the Obamabot, I wonder if they see anything else in their new puppy besides the fact that he can speak well. He can speak well, albeit with a teleprompter but I will give Obama some credit for saying the things people want to hear in the tone that they want to hear it in. His words are often subterfuge and total bullshit but they sound good, so who cares? As long as he is transparent and open to dialogue, his leadership will carry us through any crisis…Right?
Wrong. I have taken a lot of heat and lost many friends over my lack of support for Obama. I was not against him simply because of Hillary Clinton or his arrogance. 87% of my argument against Barack Obama was his lack of experience as a leader. As a junior senator from Illinois, Obama never authored a single piece of legislation, he voted “present” most of the time. There was nothing for me to work with except his eloquent hope spun and Downey April fresh scented speeches. The way he railroaded Hillary accounted for the remaining 10%, and the Ayers, Wright, kooky radical friends took the last 3%. This suggests that Obama’s inexperience for me at least, was the most influence deciding factor in my decision to vote McCain/Palin. Like the Obamabots of which he is a part, Obama sees his divine God given gift of eloquence and persuasiveness as legitimate proof of his experience and leadership potential.
If Obama can talk a hole into the heads of over 53 million voters, then why not North Korea or Iran? They should be putty in his hands.
The answer is simple, what does one do when one doesn’t haven’t a clue? They put up smoke and mirrors. In other words they do nothing:
Obama’s Weakness Issue
Dick Morris is not alone in his opinion. Many of Obama’s critics are calling him “weak”. I disagree and would say that Obama’s not weak. For if anyone is not a little innocent Pollyanna, it President Barack Obama. The theory’s premise is understandable and possibly at best, a half truth, however it is equally if not more accurate to say that Barack Obama appears weak because he is inexperienced. There is no room in the U.S. presidency for a man that acts like a deer in the headlights every time foreign policy comes into play. This is why I voted for Sen. John McCain. Remember him? The guy whose grandfather’s name is on the ship that is tracking the North Koreans and their missile which is rumored to be aimed at Hawaii- Obama’s birth state. I was once told by an Obamabot that John McCain was inarticulate, so they voted for the eloquent one.
How unfortunate that Obama’s appeal to voters was his ability as an accomplished African American orator. Congratulations, you got your man but I hope the Kool Aid drones realize that Obama’s speeches do not cut the Dijon mustard when his back is against the wall. His impulse to speak does not transfer into action. We might say that he is articulate but the “Yes We Cans” suddenly become kidnapped by the uh, uh, uh and Scooby’s “rut row” every time something scary comes along… Obama’s rhetoric exploited the volatility of the economy and the Iraq war. Again Americans being distrusting of Republicans turned to an unknown quantity for change and Obama’s words were all to profound to be misunderstood. His words, the melodic sound of his voice, the prefabricated history of his upbringing and Selma, Alabama are suddenly all silenced. What happened to the words? The “get in their faces”? Is it now all insignificant? Now the great unifier does not want to interfere or appear to be too aggressive. These are not the actions of a man is that is weak. They are the inaction of a man who is waiting to be told what to say.
