A Mostly Center-Right Place For Those With Irritable Obama Syndrome and Diversity Fatigue

Obama Voter Autopsy Results Are In: Death by Kool Aid September 23, 2010

Tags: , ,

As a traditionalist, I have an inherent distrust for movements. I take them on the case by case basis.  This goes for the Obama movement as well as the Tea Party movement.  I am a conservative but I look at candidates on the case by case basis.   Cautiously, I weigh all of the pros and cons, check out the reviews.  Much like when I purchased my new blu-ray player several weeks ago.  Finally, Afrocity is with the high-def movement…but it took a while.  Like a true skeptic, I comb Consumer Reports, ask for the opinions of friends, go to Best Buy and look at their ratings.  Even to myself it is frustrating. Just buy the damn thing already it’s only a television.  It’s only  a restaurant- put down the stupid Zagat’s and let’s go.  From my beginnings.  I hated wasting my time or money on anything.   During my wee years, I was reading an Archie comic book.  On the back, there were advertisements for gags of all sorts.  Disappearing ink, itching powder, X-ray vision glasses,  fake poo,  and the best of all… Sea Monkeys.

My young friends had all tried the other gags. The fake poo was not that exciting and the disappearing ink while funny at first just made someone want to kick your ass for getting their blouse wet… but Sea Monkeys looked great.  We all decided that we would buy a kit. I could have my own little family!

Hours of enjoyment would be spent watching my little Sea Monkey family in their aquatic home. I could watch momma monkey put on lipstick.  We could play patty cake through the plastic tank. Opponents of the Sea Monkey venture were my mother and grandmother.

“Those things are not what they say they are Afrocity,”  warned my mother. “Your brother had some of those and-“

“I WANT MY SEA MONKEY FAMILY!!!!”

“Ok..it’s your allowance.”

As my first mail-order endeavor, I got to walk to the currency exchange and purchase a money order for $3.95 , stick it in an envelope, lick the back of a postage stamp, and skip to the mailbox.  My address was on the money order, not my mother’s- MINE.

This was my little investment.  My real family is on welfare and dysfunctional but my Sea Monkey family will have it going on- dishwasher- Tv dinners every night.

Since at least 500 B.C., I waited for the UPS man and it was agonizing.

“Is it here yet?”  I asked mother bursting in from school.

She would shake her head.

My entire evening was ruined if that package with my mail order family was not there  -even the cartoons would not cheer me up.  Obsessed with the Sea Monkeys, I twitched all day in school just wondering if the package had arrived.  Can you imagine if I had a cell phone?  I would have driven my mother crazy with text messages.

“DID U GET MY PCKAGE?”

Of course my little sea family did arrive and predictably,  it was one of the most disappointing purchases I have ever made in my life.

There was a plastic tank and a packet of powder which were the Sea Monkey eggs.  “Instant Sea Monkeys”  read the label.  According to the instructions I dumped the powder of eggs into the water filled tank and waited, and waited, and waited for Godot with fins.   There were days that I would watch that tank for hours waiting for this large mermaid like family to appear…nothing…I was a sucker.  My friends were also sucked for their Sea Monkey families were AWOL as well.

Minimal humiliation was sparked by mother’s mocking remarks:  “Wow they are huge,”  she exaggerated watching me watch the empty cheaply made tank. “Look they are watching cartoons on the TV and playing “Go fish”.

Like most small children I did not want to admit that mother was right.  As badly as I wanted to throw out the stupid tank, I just let it sit there.  With the passing of weeks, I was largely over the matter  and moved on to other things but mother decided to give me a second chance at sea life.  One day after school, my Sea Monkey tank had transformed into a huge bowl with three goldfish.  They were swimming around and alive.  Rock and little fake plants and little pink houses for them.  Glee was what I felt. Glee that had been robbed by the Sea Monkey suddenly returned tenfold.

“Where did these come from ?” I asked excitedly. “Are they mine?”

“Those are the Sea Monkey’s they changed just like the comic book said they would while you were at school,” she lied. “Too bad you were not here to see them change. Oh, the tank rumbled and shook and it got to small for them so I had to get another.”

“No they did not,”  I laughed.  I did not care that she was teasing me. My goldfish were better than stupid Sea Monkeys any day”

Lesson learned?  If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is and do not buy the hype.   After being taken by the Sea Monkey scam, I always  make certain that anything I invest my time or money in is solid and seaworthy before I jump on board.

That also goes for Sea Monkey families in the White House and my precious vote.  Oh look at the cute little African American family playing in the Oval Office- they promise to deliver change and hope. OOPS- disclaimer-  I am not implying that the Obama’s are monkeys as in racially derogatory terms.  I am comparing my Sea Monkey experience with that of Americans who voted for this perfect Utopian post racial presidency.   Obama promised that our lives will be fundamentally different.  He gave his supporters drinks of  Kool Aid and campaigned a hole in their heads.

Case in point, this Obama supporter:

Aw, golly arugula!  Somebody’s  Sea Monkey did not turn into a goldfish- and it was supposed to come with a cushy job and unicorns too.  To make matters even more pathetic, in a move as old as history itself,  the fooled went back to the fooler for answers and got more change, hope and Kool Aid.

Sure, Barry we still cool.

Who has grounds for concern or criticism of Obama, aka “the anointed one” when he flashes that million dollar man march smile?

Maybe I am out of the norm here, but do you see anything about this woman’s statement that is remotely huge toothy smile worthy?  His grin… frankly, would have insulted me and I would have told him so.  More surprising was the acceptance of his answers to these people by many on the left.

So she is a plant now? Because???? She is African American and not falling over at Obama’s feet?

Sure keep drinking whether that is tea or Kool Aid.

Keep your minds open. Democrats or Republicans did not get us where we are today.  Stupidity did.

It is never easy to reconcile a bad decision but it is even harder to do so if your repeat that decision again and again and again.   You cannot really blame the candidate.  You can’t hunt him down.

You can’t whine ” you promised me the moon on steroids and all I got was this lousy Obama dress”  Correction: this VERY lousy Obama dress.

Obama did not make you pull the lever and vote for phony change. You did.

Next time before you attend a rally with millions of star struck potential voters and Greek temples made of Styrofoam don’t drink…THINK.

Strangers With Kool Aid: Will The Real Barack Obama Please Stand Up? August 20, 2010

Barack Obama does not exist.  How can he? Does anyone really know who this man is or what his true beliefs are?

In 2008, I parted ways with a liberal friend who chose to vote for Obama over Hillary Clinton.  She informed me that it was better for vote for the “unkown quantity” (Obama) than the “devil you know”  (Hillary).    Quite strong was our email debate, so strong that we never corresponded again.   This same friend was a staunch Bill Clinton supporter during the 1992 campaign and as far as I knew, a Clinton-phile.

What happened?

Would you let a stranger come into your home for four years without truly knowing who they are?  Would you let them determine what laws you abide or spend your hard earned money?

Would you let them visit neighbors or allies on your behalf?

Apparently over 63.7 million Americans did let a stranger in.  Now many of those 63.7 million are wondering who the hell is in their back yard playing golf and speaking on their behalf while spending their money like water.  He does not sound like the nice hopeful stranger they so idolized nearly two years ago.   They did not realize how much ego stroking the seemingly polite stranger would require or how many vacations and trips to campaign -even after the campaign was clearly over. At the ballot box, a little mystery seemed fun, exciting.  Who cared about the stranger’s sealed college records, numerous votes of “present” or ambiguous religious background and views?  Once the stranger moved in, there would be plenty of time to play catch up.  Plenty of time to understand his true nature, delve into his inner workings.

Unfortunately things don’t work quite that way when it comes to the people we allow into our lives or the Oval Office.   Once bugs check in, they don’t check out- at least not without a fight and some inconvenience.  Bugs also leave bite scars,droppings, disease and bills as a reminder of their existence .  The best cure is prevention.  But you have to want to know the truth and be able to handle it.

The dissection of Barack Obama’s identity or lack thereof was taken on by a number of conservatives and even some liberals who were pro-Hillary.  Sean Hannity was portrayed as an obsessive racist loon when he pointed to Obama’s connections to Rev. Jeremiah Wright,  Tony Rezko and William Ayers.

Obama’s Illinois Senate voting record was always “present” .  Seems like a reason for concern to me but I was not a Kool Aid drinker which is why my Obamabot friends thought I was being nitpicky when I said that Obama really does not take a stand on anything.  Like tofu, he took on the flavor of what ever political spice was added to him.   If the recipe for support and campaign contributions called for another ingredient,  Obama would toss the fennel and basil under the bus and replace it with the next advantageous seasoning. The aroma was great and the presentation created a piece de resistance when compared to other presidential hopefuls, especially among the Democrats.  But what the heck was going on in the kitchen?  No one knew. No one cared but you could just consumer wrap Obama up and put him in your back pocket.

Now some Americans claim they do not know the man they elected to our nation’s highest office.

They do not know what religion he is.

From TIME Magazine:

TIME Poll: Majority Oppose Mosque, Many Distrust Muslims

You say you did not see the warning  printed on the advertising?  You did not see “caution” written on the Mr. DNC  Goodbar wrapper? Didn’t your mothers ever teach you not to take Kool Aid from strangers in any form- liquid  powdered, or intravenously?  Do you know a recipe for political disaster when you see it?

24 percent of you are unsure what your president’s religion is?

Just a side note here. For the last two years I have heard so much about religion and race that I could cough up a Rainbow Coalition hairball.  Blah, blah.

Obama is black . He is not.

Obama is Muslim. He is Not.

Honestly, I do not care but there is one thing we can all universally agree on and that’s is that he is bad for America and ill-equipped to be our president.  I do not agree with his positions when they are expressed or policies.  I don’t care what ethnicity box he checks on his census form or who he prays to.     True since 9/11 we have seen a sharper eye turned to the Muslim community and a focus on religion and politics in the Eastern hemisphere.  World Trade Center go boom by Taliban in the name of Allah.  It is only natural that Americans are skeptical of the proposed mosque near ground zero.  I should know, I lived in New York at the time.  I do not want the mosque built so close to Ground Zero either.

Obama is in favor of the mosque.

Does Barry’s response surprise any of you?

Here is a representative view of Obama’s ties to the Muslim religion:

Where his sympathies lie is pretty clear to me.  But Again, Obama could be Wiccan and I would still wheelbarrow him out of office.

Vote with your head.  Not your emotions.  Ask questions before you pull the lever.

You don’t think I do that with every candidate?

Yes I do.

Even Sarah Palin.   I did not get caught up in the President or oracle debate when it came to Obama.

I did not need a savior.

I did not need a sex symbol or a great orator.

I did not need the ghost of MLK’s past.

I needed a president.

Now as it stands, I don’t know what I have living in my White House.

Bullshit: It’s Not Just For Republicans Anymore August 8, 2010

As Democrats continue to put their best face on events, arguing, in fact that it is the Republicans that got us into this mess and it is gonna take them and only them to get us out, I wonder when did the good guys suddenly turn into the stupid bad guys?   When did the liberals become masters of the bullshit machine? Political battles within the Democratic camps has shown that the party is in the state of panic.  However, they still need a message.  When you don’t have a message and you’re house is not in order (thanks  First Lady) but you have guests coming over for dinner. You have to feed them something. What do you do? You give them a bullshit sandwich.

Can someone tell me is Barack Obama good at anything besides Pez dispensing liberal platitudes and divisive bullshit? Especially when he is backed into a corner?

President Obama flies Air Force One to Chicago on his birthday to campaign for yet another Illinois crook- Alexi Giannoulias, who is campaigning as a Democrat for Obama’s old Senate seat.  Obama raises over 1 million dollars in a day for Giannoulias.  Like Obama, Giannoulias is ” change we can believe in”:

Where is the change ?  Where is the little guy in this? Meanwhile little guys in Chicago oooh and ahhh over catching a glimpse of the chosen one riding through the city.  Like bobble heads “I saw him!!! Did you see him?”   “I got a picture with my iPhone!!!”

The First Lady and child are making headlines in Spain on vacation… again where is the little guy in all of this?

What’s wrong with letting some presidential cash flow to Jackson Hole, Wyoming or Mount Rushmore? How about a “stay-cation” ?   That would reflect your solidarity with the American people who voted for your husband.  I suppose they make organic bullshit burgers too.

How about making a campaign stop in the inner city of Chicago- you know where all of the black men are killing each other?  Any words or fundraisers for them?   Mr. Obama did you know that Chicago police are now riding three men in a car?

There are times when I am blown away when I consider that I once voted for this party without much question.  They represented “brown people”.  They represented women.  The poor and suffering and that was me- at the time.  Yes I am still black and a woman but I stopped being poor and suffering when I graduated from college.   That was when I began to wake up and smell the donkey shit.  Aside from being a black pro-choice woman, there was nothing in the liberal message that resonated with me.  A ten year stint in the great state of Texas proved to me that Republicans are not all a bunch of racists.  In fact, the conservatives I knew provided more positive outreach to their communities than any Democrat I had witnessed during my time in Chicago.

Texans lived relatively high quality lives as compared to Chicagoans.  No state taxes.  No taxes on food.

I can recall during my first Texas year stepping up to a Piggly Wiggly cashier and exclaiming over my 89 cents can of tuna fish costing exactly 89 cents.

“Honey, there is no tax on food here,” the cashier said to me. “Where have you been?”

I was in shock.  “…Chicago…The only time we don’t pay taxes on food is when we use food stamps.”

The cashier just gives me this blank stare.  I think she went home and prayed for me that night over her tax free meal of Frito Pie.

Afrocity just wondered if living in a Republican run state was so bad, why did I get to keep more of my hard earned money?  Oh, because the Republicans don’t care about the little guy. My mother learned this when she moved there and attempted to get on welfare without children and at age 54.  Texas told her to cut the bullshit and get to work.  You should have seen my mother’s face when the caseworker handed her a list of jobs- GUARANTEED JOBS.

“Um, err, I can’t work, ” my mother lied.  “I have a bad…knee… Can I get disability?”

The state of Texas tried to call BULLSHIT but mother found a liberal lawyer and  some quack doctor to claim that she was 35% disabled.  Back on foodstamps she went- happy as a government fed clam.  Beyond these incidents, there was much that occurred which persuaded me to switch parties but still I stayed on the jackass boat, aborting any signs of mutiny in the womb before it manifested itself at the voting booth.

I know, I know…How could you Afrocity?

But understand that bullshit is an acquired taste.  That is to say, if someone feeds you crap election year in and election year out, you only know… well…crap.   You become accustomed to the broken promises and pointing fingers game.  You accept your permanent place in the war of America’s needy versus America’s greedy.  Despite your inner brilliance- your wiser conscious plea to ask questions and get real answers, you continue to eat the plate of bullshit set before you.  Some like myself ate with small spoonfuls -drinking huge glasses of water between each swallow.  Others like my mother and most Obama supporters  put the feedbag on with gusto.

The day I woke up and took a much needed shower, was the day the bullshit became not a meal for my liberal friends but something to throw at me.

Friend: Afrocity how can you turn your back on everything the Democrats have done for black people”

Afrocity: Like………….

You see Afrocity does not play the bullshit game anymore.  Give the donkeys their breast cancer hued pink slip.



The Democrats do not have the answers and maybe the Republicans don’t either.  However, do not spin the liberal bullshit message that because the Republicans do not have all the answers or because President Bush got us into this mess,  the American people  should continue to support Obama and the current imbeciles in Washington.

No more.

Wake up zombies.  Stop drinking KoolAid.  Stop listening to this walking campaign slogan of a president you elected. The man does not have answers, he has more divisive rhetoric- NOTHING MORE.   To borrow from his analogy of America as a vehicle stuck in a ditch…How can Obama get you out of the ditch when he is in the car expecting you to push? Refuse or get in the way of his best friend- the rear view mirror, and he add you to the list of many to run over when the car gets started.

Wake up America and wipe the bullshit from your mouths.  It is time to make some changes to the menu.

Live From The Obama Fallout Shelter July 27, 2010

There are certain times in life, when I maneuver conflict more gracefully than others.  For the times I don’t,  I retreat. Which is why I have been a non blog posting flake for the last two months.  Remember the old Afrocity who used to post once or more a day?  What happened to her?  Did she turn liberal again? Is she floating in the Chicago River face down with a “Sarah Palin  is a Cunt” tee shirt tied around her neck?  Clearly the victim was strangled before she was murdered and it was staged to appear as though the right wing turned on the poor misguided African American conservative.

And here lies the question.

Who can you trust nowadays?

Honestly, (and my dear readers will never have me any other way)  there are days when both sides get on my nerves.  Yes liberal readers, Afrocity does get fed up with conservatives at times. The abortion issue is one of those times.   I do not need the Christian Coalition Against Choice task-force sending me emails every time I author a pro-choice piece.

“It is not about government interference or privacy, it is about murder and against God’s will…yada, yada, yada, yada”

Nothing will make me anti-choice.  Sorry conservative Charlie.  And while we are at it, nothing will ever make me protest gay marriage.  It is not my business.  Having said that, you will never see Afrocity at a gay marriage rally either.  I check my activism at the door when it comes to matters concerning religion, life, death, abortion and marriage.  Meddling often overrides political common sense.  Gay marriage and abortion, have no place in a political discussion.  Both issues unnecessarily divide women and men who may otherwise choose different political parties if the conflict did not exist.  According to liberals, Sarah Palin could never be a feminist because she is pro-life.   In the world according to ass,  pro-life women do not want equal pay or the right to vote.  Why would a pro-life woman care about matters concerning breastfeeding in public or day care?  Pro-life women must love getting sexually harassed at work.

Only liberal women care about that sort of thing you know.

Resolutions to the abortion issue will never follow my lifetime because really, both parties do not want the conflict to end.  It creates much needed political tension and division.

Without divisions, there would be no base.

And speaking of political division… Democrats, before you begin licking your donkey chops, you should know that conservatives- the group with whom  I identify with the most- annoy me far less than most liberals do.  Far, far, far, far less.

The liberal tourist traffic frequenting the FOX NEWS/New Black Panther Party drama coupled with the press attention over the NAACP and the Tea Partiers has of late rendered me politically tone deaf.  Although the NAACP was useful during some stage in American history, after taking a look at their website site recently, I do not know what the hell they are doing besides fueling… well…racism.

Take a look at the lovely online exhibit of racist Tea Party signs the NAACP has curated:

I cannot tell you what the NAACP hopes to accomplish with this. You cannot truly fight racism unless you first cut the cancer from your own hypocritical backsliding throat.  Racism is racism.  You cannot call it racism when it only effects your special interest group.

This is the NAACP’s  pledge to “repudiate racism” in the Tea Party

  • I believe all Americans have equal rights and equal value.
  • I cherish the diverse cultures, beliefs, and values of America.
  • I believe we can disagree without being disagreeable.
  • I repudiate all acts of racism and hate, both in words and action.
  • I have faith in the promise of America – a promise built on mutual respect, common civility, and hope for a better tomorrow.
  • I commit to building that better America by participating actively and peacefully in the democratic process.
  • We are one people. We are one nation. I’m an NAACP American

That last line really troubles me. I am an American first.  Yes I am an African American.  I am a female who happens to be black.  I am surely not an “NAACP American”.  What does mean anyway?  Exploring the pledge further makes me wonder if the NAACP actually followed their own advice in the past and enforced the PLEDGE when the following Democrats said:

You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? … Only if they had the hotel staff in here.”–Howard Dean

I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time” – Robert Byrd

He [RNC Chairman Michael Steel]has a career of slavishly supporting the Republican Party.“–Democrat Steny Hoyer

He’s [Clarence Thomas]  married to a white woman. He wants to be white. He wants a colorless society. He has no ethnic pride. He doesn’t want to be black.” -California Democrat Diane Watson

Would the NAACP ever hang this picture at headquarters?

Where was the NAACP when Condeleeza Rice was branded an Aunt Jemima along with colorful images of her clad in a red do rag and mammy doll’s clothing?

Where was the NAACP when African Americans made racist remarks against Hillary Clinton supporters- especially black Clinton supporters?

“At the end of the day, Hillary is still a white woman.”

Those words were spoken to me by my aunt- a rabid Obama supporter.  Her worry was that black women would vote for Hillary over Obama because she was a woman.  Auntie was simply reminding her politically wayward niece that color trumps gender.    I will not get into the narcotic Kool Aid dependencies of Obamabots in this post, but I knew auntie was inhaling and sending her last dollar to the Obama campaign. Her will to see beyond race was compromised by her commitment to righting the political wrongs of slavery and bondage.  In essence , African Americans were becoming everything they used to hate.

What a sad delusion.

What an abysmal state of mind to be stuck in.

The Democratic party- the party of equal rights, tolerance, diversity and most of all liberalism, is on auto-destruct mode.  Such a reversal of misfortunates.  You were once racist against me so that give me the right to be intolerant and racist against you–FOREVER.

Within the analogy of annoyances between conservatives and liberals,  everything depends on what I can and cannot morally stomach.  I hate hypocrisy.  At least the religious/holier than thou trope has always been a staple amongst conservatives. Republicans are pretty consistent about being anti-choice, anti- government and self-knowingly quite hypocritical about it.    Along with the heavy moral quotient, regardless of any fallacies committed along the way, the elephant is usually not delighting in the enslavement of identity politics. The elephant does not suffer from amnesia when it comes to the Civil Rights Era.  The elephant is not involved in some KoolAid/cult of personality  addiction narrative that seems to follow their most successful leaders (Kennedy/Obama).   The elephant in my view is not dispensing hopium to its patients and quickly escaping on a jet to play a hundred rounds of golf in Hawaii.

Is all hunky dory on the right side of the tracks?

No, of course not.  I would be lying if I said it was.   I battle everyday to get conservatives to understand why some of us Americans want to be called African Americans.  If I want a hyphen, then damn-it I can have one.  When I expatriated from the Democratic Party, I did not stop being African American.  If the GOP wants more people of color , they will have to market the brand in a way that does not compromise the values of conservatives; while at the same time showing us that it is okay to be proud of one’s ethnicity.  No watermelon cart is needed.  You don’t need a reparations bill to get African Americans to join the conservative party. Just be yourselves and show them what you stand for and how it can benefit them.

Someone may listen.

I did.

Well, back to the shelter…I may crawl out in a few days when I run out of Beanie Weenies and Gatorade.  Visit if you choose but be warned… I do not allow Kool Aid or Barney Franks.

Diversity Fatigue Friday: The Unknown Historic Moment Quantity May 21, 2010

From I own the world

Barack Obama campaigned for his presidency during a time that the majority of Americans wanted anything that was the antithesis of George Bush. Couple that desire with the juxtaposition of the Obama persona with such African-American icons as Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, one can surely understand how the combination was a winning David Axelrod formula.

The climate wave was change, hope and the promise of a historic moment.   My PUMA counterparts did not buy into it. They had found a suitable candidate in Hillary Clinton.  Hillary offered the promise of brains, experience, substance and of course- a historic moment.  Hillary offered something in different forms . She was the best man for the job and she would have be the first female President of the United States of America.   It was clear that Hillary was more qualified than Barack Obama. Yes there was baggage but I can argue that one can expect baggage with experience.  I can tolerate some baggage depending on what kind it is.  Okay so, Hillary voted for the war on Iraq.  For me, that was a moot point.  We were already in it so let’s finish it.  I can accept that over a vote for TARP.  It was not like Obama really cared about foreign policy. Besides, Barack Obama was not in the U.S. Senate  when the vote on Iraq was taken.  How did we know what he would have done?  He was an unknown quantity.  Yes there was some information out there. The kind that was only broadcast on Fox News. The kind that Obama supporters did not want to hear about.

How were we supposed to know how Obama would have handled 9/11 or Hurricane Katrina? An economic crisis?  A major oil spill?

How did we know that he was not the same ol’ Washington Politics? Business as usual?

Now we do.

Over the Rainbows

by Jonah Goldberg
May 21, 2010

…He came into office promising rainbows and puppies for everyone and has, like Pizza Hut during a blizzard, failed to deliver. Now, before some intern at a left-wing media watchdog outfit spits Diet Snapple out his nose in outrage over my “fabrications” and “distortions,” and fires off some canned protest e-mail, I do not literally mean to suggest that Obama promised voters rainbows and puppies. Rather, I mean it figuratively. He did literally promise to change the way Washington works, unify the country, govern from the center, work with Republicans and operate the government in a fiscally responsible way. That hasn’t happened. You could look it up.

The White House desperately wants the story to be “Voters Mad at Washington,” not “Voters Mad at Democrats” or, heaven forbid, “Voters Mad at Obama.” But the simple truth is that all three things are true, and Obama deserves much of the blame.

Jay Cost, an indispensable election analyst at RealClearPolitics.com, has it exactly right: ” ‘Change that you can believe in’ has gone from an over-worked campaign slogan to an unfalsifiable hypothesis. Vote for a Dem, you support the President’s agenda for change. Vote for a GOPer, you support the President’s agenda for change.”

This spin has been a long time in coming. After the Scott Brown victory, the White House claimed that the Republican’s win was a manifestation of the same political forces that brought Obama to power, even though Brown opposed Obama’s agenda, and despite the fact that Obama lustily endorsed Brown’s opponent, Martha Coakley. Who, by the way, wasn’t an incumbent. She promised to advance Obama’s “change” agenda, and she lost. But Obama’s just so awesome that what would be political losses for lesser mortals must be more winning proof of his supercalifragilisticexpialidociousness. Because as far as this White House is concerned, nothing is ever Obama’s fault and everything is proof of how much we need him.
It’s an odd position given how the people who need him least are candidates from his own party
.

For those of you who claimed to have voted for Obama because he was a fresh, unfettered, unknown quantity – a historic moment… Tell me.  how do you feel about your choice now?

Barack Obama and his Disease NOT to Please March 18, 2010

When Bret Baier of FOX NEWS stepped into President Barack Obama’s parlor for a lengthy interview yesterday , all arrogance and subterfuge broke out from the mouths of the two-faced chosen one.

When it comes to getting to the heart of the matter with the head of our nation, there are no logical underpinnings. Only a smarmy and disturbingly dismissive air  that is and will always be the true nature of Obama.   There is no sense of openness with this guy. The house is full of glass –breakable objects with “DO NOT TOUCH” signs –such as his ego.  Look at it, admire it, but don’t you dare touch it or you may get shocked.   Because his clenched lipped, wide toothy smile is an extension of his fake demeanor, I am not quite certain how much forced effort he expends per appearance to actually endear himself to the public.

I will bet anyone a tall frothy mug of root beer that Obama ran to some back room and punched some poor unsuspecting well wallpapered White House wall  after his FOX interview.

Bravo to Bret Baier, for not falling for the ol’ Obama long drawn out response trick. Bravo to FOX NEWS for not rolling over and playing dead like nearly every other media outlet known to man.

I love the way Obama is dismissive of Bret’s email examples.  Emails from ACTUAL PEOPLE.  Not his Kool AID punch drunk adoring fans who are planted like acorns at town hall meetings.

So reminiscent of Obama’s “I HAVE A BRACELET TOO” moment during a 2008 presidential debate.

Has anyone ever told you that you are too nice?  That you are “a pleaser” ?  You care too much about what others think?   For every disease there is its evil twin.  The twin of “the disease to please” is named Barack Obama.

Obama’s lack of concern for Americans is not hidden in some deep dank, dark place beneath the surface… It is on the surface.

There is no “at first sight he seems compassionate” .    At least for smart voters like myself there wasn’t

Any intelligent, discerning voter can see that it is in Obama’s DNA not to please.  There is something more important in his life than you and that’s HIM.  Make no mistake that his inner house is full of glass. His brain has skylights and trap doors, no expression of true warmth and held together with steel and concrete beams, 40 tons of granite.

Ultimately this man is a with-holder.  While voters were douching their minds with  hope n’ change, Obama was cocooning his ego in the love bath.

Whatever originally attracted anyone to vote for Obama is beyond me.  His ego is his driving force, not the will of the people.   There is no well being center oasis in the desert.  Any attempt to reason with him will cause the “Uh, UH” responses and the dreaded “LOOK”.   Obama wants to keep things as fluidly slick and deceptive as possible.  When you touch the glass, it breaks and will cut you.

Hopefully in 2012 what felt so right to voters in 2008, will feel so wrong.  Whether any of his behavior and broken promises inspire his supporters to CHANGE and hope for something better, is entirely up to them.

People like me are just the messengers of the obvious message.

Diversity Fatigue Friday: The Past Makes Imperfect Sense February 12, 2010

Are you at all surprised by anything that is occurring with the Obama administration? Did you expect things to be worse or better than they have turned out to be? In my case, I suppose that I expected pretty much what we experiencing now but to a lesser extent. Sure, Obama’s failure can be food for the conservative’s soul however, what does all of this really say about the future of politics in America? We elected an empty Ivy League educated suit, for the second time or perhaps third or even fourth. For some, electing Obama was a break from the crusty old white men of POTUS yesteryear. But how big a break was it? However illegitimate the liberals suspicions of racism on the part of voters against Barack Obama, we must acknowledge that our country fell for the bait and elected a man because of what was on the outside rather than the inside. For many, Obama’s election was a historic moment, a black man in office…FINALLY!!! But at what cost? Even as some liberals begin to mildly criticize the Obama administration, they remain loyal to the “we elected the right man” meme. They remain loyal to man that promised change and jobs.

The unfolding truth of President Obama, does little to confirm their fantasies.

You got your man, a black man, and that is exactly what you voted for. The Tea Party Movement has developed in large measure as not only a revolt against the Obama administration and Washington insiders but hopfully also the way we elect these people to our highest offices. Who says that our president always has to come from an Ivy League university? Possess a law degree and a penis?

There are many ways in which we could be diverse in choosing our elected officials. Color and sex does not have to be one of them.
Yes, Sarah Palin is a woman and it would indeed have been a historic moment if John McCain had won the presidency. Her vagina was not her only claim to diversity. There was those kids, and that “provincial” world view that drove the liberals crazy.

She didn’t go to school in the right places or wear the right clothes. When she did wear the right clothes, she was accused of spending too much money on them.

When it comes to choosing our president many Americans  propose that they do not desire Washington insiders. They claim to be anti-establishment, against the status quo.  But how can you aspire to be against the norm in Washington when you voted for Barack Obama?  He was the same Ivy League, lobbyist coddling, slick, Washington insider as the rest of them…only he can in a darker variety.

So much for true diversity.

For your viewing pleasure is this classic clip from an episode of  70’s Norman Lear sitcom, The Jeffersons.  Here characters George Jefferson and Tom Willis grapple with whether or not they should vote for a candidate because of his skin color.
