From Contra

By their fruits ye shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

-Matthew 7:13

Some Obama supporters may be disturbed to find that there is much truth in the above verse from the Bible.   In 2008, as I was looking at Obama the man,  I examined his character by his record, his actions and his accomplishments.

In some instances I saw a man that was well spoken and obviously ambitious. Similarly, I thought the same of his opponents. You may  know that I supported Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Primary. After she was “removed” from the competition, I was faced with a choice.   A choice that was a helluva lot bigger than just Barack Hussein Obama.  Prior to the 2008 campaigns, the Democrats left me cold.

I was changing. They were changing.

This shift in part, reflected attitudes that I had buried for some time.  The “liberal agenda” was no longer something I was interested in pursuing.  Pro-choice advocacy  and gay rights were like two little children keeping me in a bad marriage.   After taking a hard look at Barack Obama and a sad look at the DNC, I could no longer stay for the sake of the kids.

Today as I reflect on that decision, it has become obvious to me that while I left the Democrats, I could not have voted for Obama even if I had remained loyal to the party. This brings me back to the subject of one’s character and the fruits they bear. After looking at Obama’s character, there was no dilemma for Afrocity. I could not in good conscious vote for a man who:

1. Sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years. Said he could not disown him, then throws him under the bus once it was politically expedient to do so.

2. Bought his home from a criminal.

3. Accomplished nothing in the Illinois Senate. Voted present most of the time.

4. Ran for the presidency after promising Illinois voters that he would not, yet decided to run after 150 days in the U.S. Senate. Thus spending most of his time on the campaign trail.

5.  Promised not to take private campaign funding then went back on his word.

6. Said misogynist things about Hillary Clinton during the primaries.

7. Said that his grandmother was a typical “white woman”.

8. Is someone who uses race as means to cause political unrest and advance his career.

9.  Has associations with slum lords and domestic terrorists. (birds of a feather)

10. Throws anyone under the bus at the moment they become a threat to his career or no longer useful.

11. Really had no record or experience of doing anything in his past except leaving one office to run for another.

12. Could obviously never be humble, never admit he made a mistake which equals arrogance. For example to say ” You can put lipstick on a pig…” ,  yet never apologize for it and move on rather than accuse those who were offended by it of  “phony outrage”.

13. Failed to call the liberals out for the things they said and wore about Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin.  If I were he, I would have said to my supporters as McCain did to his, “chill out” that sort of behavior is not what I represent. Instead Obama seemed to revel in it and used their emotions to his advantage. Sure it won an election but it says a lot about one’s character.

14. Yelling “I have a bracelet too”  during a debate with John McCain.

15. Dragged his own daughter down the streets of Chicago  to go trick or treating as a photo op. The look on his face showed that he obviously did not want to be there. It was such a contrast to Sarah Palin taking Piper trick or treating in Pennsylvania. Palin actually wanted to be there and was enjoying herself, it was not a campaign afterthought.

16. Obviously suffers from a messiah complex,  Greek temples…

17. Joe the Plumber. Obama was busted. When you are busted shut up and move on.  I did not like him putting Joe down afterwards in his campaign speeches. It was tasteless and immature.  That also goes for Obama’s use of any human campaign prop such as his stories about the Republican diner owner who did not sell sweet potato  pie.

18. Phony stories about his history i.e. his parents meeting at Selma, Alabama. Uncle at Auschwitz story when it was Bergen Belsen I believe.

19. Not going to Hawaii after Toot died. It was strange. Very strange.

20.  The way he begins a statement with  “look”  after someone asks him a challenging question. You know that the next thing out of his mouth is bullshit.

21. Making up his platform on the fly. Stealing health care initiatives from Hillary Clinton.

22. Not knowing Jack about foreign policy. “I will be tough on Afghanistan”   Now we see where that has got us. Surprise, surprise . He lied.

23. Would employ general communistic propaganda tools during his campaign.

24. Arugula. Need I say more?

25. I will not wear that flag pin. Need I say more?

From I Own The World


I will stop here. Definitely, I could go on with 99 other problems but for the sake of my readers I will stop.

The things I listed may seem trivial to some however in my view, those actions spoke volumes about Obama’s character.

Let’s take for example Afghanistan. It was clear during the campaign that Obama did not give a vegan cupcake about foreign policy. There was no feeling or depth to his words. This behavior of yesteryear corresponds nicely with his “dithering” on sending more troops to Afghanistan.

Still not convinced that past deeds and behavior determines present experiences?

Let’s take a look at patterns exhibited in Barack Obama’s radical associations. Why are we surprised that he would choose crazy radical czars when he associated with the likes of Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers? Why the sudden surprise ACORN that he threw you under the bus when he did it to his own grandmother?  Go away ACORN, he is done with you.

Why the surprise when Obama announced on CNN this week that he may not necessarily seek re-election in 2012. This is a set up in case his poll numbers are in the tank. If we do not re-elect Obama in 2012 according to him it is not because he is a terrible leader, it is because we are not ready for change and his ideas are unpopular. Sounds like a bad break up is coming in our future.

Also sounds like some one who runs for one political office, leaves and jumps to another…say something with the UN?

What you see is what you get. You just have to see it. It was there all of the time. If you decide to disapprove of it now after having voted for it once, daddy may punish you by not running again.

Before voting, look at the candidate’s past deeds and character. You may learn something.

    excellent post – love the line – Pro-choice advocacy and gay rights were like two little children keeping me in a bad marriage.

  2. Throbert McGee Says:

    Speaking of trivial-yet-revealing food symbolism, I got deeply suspicious of Michelle Obama when I read that she submitted a shortbread recipe to Family Circle magazine for their traditional “prospective First Ladies’ cookie bake-off”.

    Mind you, I love shortbread, but it’s very, very, very lacking in pizazz — who in their right mind would think they could win a cookie-recipe contest with shortbread? (And in fact, Cindy McCain’s oatmeal cookies with butterscotch chips triumphed over Michelle’s shortbread by a substantial margin.)

    So my hypothesis is that Michelle opted for shortbread because she figured it would be subliminally associated with Mammy’s li’l baby loves sho’tnin’ bread and thus give her some Black Authenticity points to counter the Obamas’ reputation as affluent elitists. (Notwithstanding the fact that traditional “sho’tnin’ bread” was a type of cornmeal fritter similar to hushpuppies, and thus totally unlike “shortbread.”)

    “Before voting, look at the candidate’s past deeds and character. You may learn something.”

    What is so astounding is that people refused to do this. It’s a basic part of how the world works, you look at somebody’s work history before you hire them. You look at someone’s record before you vote for them. I am still amazed that people refused to do this. They saw Obama and treated him as some sort of magic being that dropped from the sky. Who he was or where he had been was irrelevant, he was The Chosen One.

    • Marcy Says:

      So true. No investigation whatsoever of Obama’s background or statements, no outcry when he refused to provide his college transcripts or medical records, just a collapse into a state of total adoration by the media. But when Sarah Palin appeared on the scene as a candidate for VP, not one inch of the State of Alaska or any orifice of her body was left unexamined. And even now we have eleven factcheckers for the book of a person not even holding office and still none for the President.

  4. Leah Says:

    So he himself doesn’t believe that his ‘healthcare’ bill is good for the country.
    He says that if reelection were his goal he wouldn’t have tackled that. On the other hand we hear (not in polls) that this is what America really wants.

    So what is it? What America really wants and therefore he’d be a shoe in for reelection.
    Or I’m ramming this down the Americans throats, it will cost me my second term but I will have started America down the road to serfdom.

  5. Holly Says:

    Afghanistan infuriates me. Health care, that can be done it three weeks. Afghanistan, no, no, no…we need over four months to decide, but in that interim, we are under-staffed and possibly ill-equipped and people will die, but, you know, it’s Bush’s fault. This man has no idea what he is doing and you can see that in how the military responds to him. My brother serves and my most terrifying fear would be that he would serve under an Obama administration, where I do not see a respect at all for the men and women who are in uniform. There is not that admiration, love, and respect that Bush had, but rather a gesture of his duty as President to be “present.”

    Your list and analysis could not be more accurate.

    The Biblical verse you used made me think of Proverbs and The Wicked Man:

    “A worthless person, a wicked man,
    Walks with a perverse mouth;
    He winks with his eyes,
    He shuffles his feet,
    He points with his fingers;
    Perversity is in his heart,
    He devises evil continually,
    He sows discord.
    Therefore his calamity shall come suddenly;
    Suddenly he shall be broken without

    These six things the Lord hates,
    Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
    A proud look,
    A lying tongue,
    Hands that shed innocent blood,
    A heart that devises wicked plans,
    Feet that are swift in running to evil,
    A false witness who speaks lies,
    And one who sows discord among

    Proverbs 6:12-19 NKJV

    This could describe quite a few people among the world stage.

  6. “President Obama” needs a new title, since he is not deserving of the title President.
    Perhaps “Dissident Obama” A dissident, broadly defined, is a person who actively challenges an established doctrine, policy, or institution.
    Or maybe “Resident Alien Obama” A foreigner who is a permanent resident of the country in which he or she resides but does not have citizenship.
    Or “Pepsodent Obama” All teeth, no substance.

  7. Lots and lots and lots of details on Obama The Communist here:

  8. The self-serving drivel he spouts in the interview is only meant to show him as “above politics” (as opposed to – give us anything and we’ll declare victory” that Rahm told Dems about healthcare). About as transparent as Bush’s “I don’t read polls”

  9. garnette Says:

    The whole thing with Afghanistan makes me even madder at him because I remember the debate when he decided to “educate” McCain on what needed to be done there because he understood the situation at that time so well to be able to point out the “mistakes” Bush made. Also, I seem to remember McCain pointing out that Obamacorn’s sub committee (that was Afghanistan or that area) had never met since he had become Senator. Oops. Yet, now he is letting it fester to the point where he has no choice to pull out.

  10. Peter Says:

    I knew he was scum when he did that middle finger trick where his opponents couldn’t see it in the debates. And then that childish smile when his minions laughed.

    The trouble with Obama is that he grew to adult age while still remaining a child. If only he’d lived without those “no fighting, no matter what” rules he would have got that knocked out of him while still a child and grown up to be a man.

  11. John Morris Says:

    No, please go on!

  12. boldandbald Says:

    I find it very interesting that he is perfectly aware of the fact that his policies are unpopular, but, after all, he knows better than the foolish American public what is best for them, and will continue to further his agenda despite what the people want. Frankly, the way things are going I don’t think it is going to matter if he runs or not, he will not win in 2012. At least, I really hope for that change.

  13. TheRealKim Says:

    You nailed it, but the question that still drives me insane is why??????? We would never employ a hairdresser for brain surgery or a car mechanic to build our home. So why on earth did the US citizens vote for a rock star to run our country???

    • because people think elections are American Idol writ large. They vote for who “sounds good” or “looks good.” There is NO substantive debate about issues whatsoever.

  14. purplefinn Says:

    Your words ring so true, afrocity. I paid attention to what came before and after “look” in the interview. He was asked about Palin’s book and the the prospect of her running in 2012. The “BS” that I heard was how difficult it was for him to appear to be fair to Palin. He really wanted to say, “Sarah Palin, you know, she eats red meat!”

  15. You sing it, sister.

  16. loudmouthjewishbabe Says:

    Yes, once again Obama knows best. *snerk*

    This UK Telegraph mentions his healthcare plan. And before the libs come here and say that private insurers do the same thing, my sister on BC/BS was given Avastin when it was in its beginning stages and its long-term prognosis wasn’t fully known. That was 2004. It’s standard practice *here* now. Unless the National Institute for Clinical Excellence board has recently approved it (albeit “postcode lottery,”- what do you do if your number isn’t picked)?, I believed it is still not paid for by NHS, because NICE has deemed it “too expensive.”

  17. Bianca Says:


    The comments are outstanding too.

    Love you, Afrocity!!!

  19. AfricanAgainstO Says:

    Sorry to side track … I ran into those idiot Larouche people again – what is up with them … I bet people who walked by them at the DC Metro assumed they were conservatives. They had Obama as Hitler poster … all young people – black and white – it is like a cult.

  20. Janis Says:

    Pro-choice advocacy and gay rights were what kept me there as well … but it’s more than just the kids in a bad marriage. It’s stayng in a bad marriage for the kids that your husband is sexually abusing.

    Because that’s as much as abortion and gay rights mean to the Democrats anyway. If neither side is going to advocate for them, then the Dems can damned well shut up about them from now on instead of playacting like they care. I’m not a Republican because they don’t care either, but at least they don’t attempt to manipulate me falsely.

  21. aussie Says:

    Afrocity, go and read Hillbuzz. You have a lot in common with these gay men. They live in boystown, and they are also followers of Hillary Clinton. They have a lot to say about the caucus and what happened to Hillary (think fraud in Iowa).

    You are in the same place and believe me, these men know what they want and I do believe that you have a lot in common with them.

    Anyway, that was a very good assessment of Obama. All of it was apparent before the election. However, there were too many racist people with stars in their eyes. There were blacks of course, but there were also middle-aged white women who voted for him, and when I spoke to them they were not ready to entertain any criticsm of the man. They kept on saying “just wait and see”. I do believe that they were just as racist as the blacks and hispanics who voted for Obummer.

  22. sstorm0730 Says:

    I took Obama’s advice and judged him by the people he associated with. I was not impressed then, and I sure as hell am not impressed now.

    Great blog!

  23. Stilton Says:

    Afrocity, this is an incredible post! Your laundry list of reasons you couldn’t support Obama very much mirror the path of my disillusionment and eventual dislike of the man. Granted, I was conservative before he ever got in the race…but I wanted the first really credible Black presidential candidate to be something and someone special, and perhaps help us to that post-racial, post-partisan condition that our country so desperately needs. If he could deliver in those areas, I could overlook some policy disagreements.

    But no – the man lied too often, and about too much…and his lack of character or credibility were very clear long, long before election day.

    Thanks, as always, for your insights. And best wishes to you and all your readers for Thanksgiving!

  24. Rose Says:

    Agreed – and on so many points you would say – that ONE THING alone should disqualify him, and yet he wins, and then that ONE THING that ought to mean his removal from office, and yet his devotees remain blind.

    The associations with radical/terrorists like Ayres, racists like Wright, the list is endless, and the media ignores it. But it is not going away, their attempts to pretend it does not exist come back to bite them increasingly – as the White House party crashers sage is beginning to show. Associates and bad associations.

    Maybe the LA Times reporter will finally realize that he should have done his job, and shown the video when it mattered. Before it was too late. His abrogation of his responsibilities is unforgivable.
