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

Welcome To Co-Dependants Anonymous…For Obama Supporters October 23, 2009

obama-marieantoinette2Last night an acquaintance of mine says to me ” I voted for Barack Obama because he had a plan. With John McCain I did not see a plan.”

While I do not agree with his statement, I have come to terms with the idea that many people saw something in Barack Obama that apparently I and 46% of other voters did not. I am still trying to understand what they saw exactly.

Obama vs. The President He Said He’d Be

By Tom Bevan

During the campaign Barack Obama vowed he would be a different kind of leader who would move America beyond the “smallness of our politics.” That inspired promise was not an insignificant part of why he was elected last November.

In his inaugural address Obama told us that “the time has come to set aside childish things.” He promised to bring “an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.”

Not only has President Obama failed to live up to those promises so far, it appears that on more than a number of occasions he’s made a conscious decision to break them.

In the first nine months in office President Obama and/or members of his administration have accused doctors of performing unnecessary medical procedures for profit; demonized bond holders as “speculators;” produced a report suggesting military veterans are prone to becoming right wing extremists; attacked insurance companies and threatened them with legislative retribution; ridiculed talk show hosts and political commentators by name from the White House podium; dismissed and demeaned protesters and town hall attendees as either unauthentic or fringe characters; maligned a white police officer for arresting a black man without knowing the facts of the case; launched an orchestrated campaign to marginalize the country’s biggest pro-business group; and publicly declared war on a news organization.

Twice in the last week, perhaps carried away by the campaign atmosphere, President Obama ramped up the use of the kind of partisan rhetoric that will drive Americans further apart; once in San Francisco at a DNC fundraiser and once last night at a rally for Jon Corzine.

As a result of this strategy, President Obama’s approval rating has fallen consistently since taking office while Americans’ disapproval of the way he’s handled his job has more than doubled and is now at an all time high of 44 percent. On Wednesday Gallup reported that the 9-point drop in Obama’s approval rating between July and September was the third most precipitous decline in Presidential history and the worst since 1953.

"Up Up And Away" from Hope N' Change Cartoons by Stilton Jarlsberg.

Words are just words. Promises fall hollow for me when one does not have the experience or record to back it up.

At an early an early age, I learned to judge people by their actions and not by their words. I mention this because there was a time when I was like my mother and did not. As a girl, I felt sick at the prospect of watching her get screwed over again and again by the same people who promised a lot but delivered nothing.

The lesson: If they stood you up three times last year, they will probably stand you six more times this year.

Unfortunately, I had to apply my own rule to my mother. Her fatal character flaw was laziness and a lack of motivation, coupled ironically with a sense of entitlement. The government was there to take care of us. That was our right as African Americans. We deserved it and besides the government gets oodles of money from the taxes of rich folks like Republicans.  Her philosophy of course was quite evident in her record. Years knowing my mother– 38. Years she held a job during that time 8.2,  and I am being generous. Based on that record of 30 years without working, I gave up hoping she would become gainfully employed by my 26th year. It was just not in her. When did she finally get a job? In 1994 when she lived in the state of Texas, a state that is as red as they come… A state that does not bullshit when it comes to lazy people on government assistance.

Texas saw my mother for what she was an able-bodied lazy person, fat off years of government aid from Illinois.

On a weaned government diet, they afforded her a stipend of $69 dollars a month in food stamps with zero cash money. Within several months, she fell homeless and came to live with me in my college dorm. Luckily, I had no roommate and would sneak her in. I tolerated her for an entire summer while I went to school taking Japanese, Constitutional Law and several other ass kicking classes. I also worked two jobs at Houston law firms making $10 an hour at each, far above the minimum wage. Mother’s initial refusal to look for work angered me but I hoped she would “change”.

Drowning quickly, my grades began to suffer as well as my friendships. I did not date for fear of letting out ‘”the secret”. How could I bring a potential paramour to my dorm room when my mother lived there with me in a 100 square foot space and a single bed with extra long sheets? I dropped my sorority which was my only source of leadership opportunity and networking.  Afrocity was dying. Mother loved me and wanted me to go to law school but failed to see that she was destroying me with her dependency.

missbarackomericaWas I helping my mother by helping her?

Not really.

In fact she became more dependent upon me. She refused to leave my room for fresh air or to give me space and time with friends my own age. This was obviously a turning point in our relationship for me. I was an enabler and mother needed tough love. Taking my savings, I began to look for an apartment for her. Two weeks later, I put her in a taxicab and sent her on her way. She had a one bedroom apartment, a fridge full of food, and two months rent paid in advance.

For three peaceful months, I heard not a peep from mother. The new fall semester of my senior year in college was upon me. I had dreams of moving to Japan in order to hone my language skills, possibly grad school afterward. My over-taxed exhausting summer was over, or so it seemed.  I got a phone call one night. It was mom.

“I lost the apartment and now I am in a homeless shelter,” she sounded pitiful, defeated, helpless…again.

Frozen with fear, I hung up the phone on her and ignored her calls for 4 months. Each abandoned call made me shudder with guilt. How could I do this to my mother?

The next time I spoke with her she had another apartment and a job in a retail stock room. For the first time in nearly 15 years my mother was working and not drawing a government or “Bank of Afrocity” check.

In those years, I was upset with myself for not seeing my mother as she was. Would she lose the job again? Yes in three years when she transferred to my brother’s bank of kindness and Social Security. After all she was who she was.

And Barack Hussein Obama is who he is.

As you read my words, you may have noticed that there are images of our dear leader in some of his “glorious moments” as seen through the lens of a skeptic. Are we negative? Are we failing to come up with solutions?

Perhaps. However I would say that the questions you really should be asking are of him. You voted for him.

Accepting a person unconditionally requires that you recognize that person’s faults and learn how to tolerate them. How many times have you witnessed a friend with a cheating spouse, a child who has a drug addiction, or a friend who is unreliable? What happens? They continue to see the best in that person while getting taken advantage of.

You may say “Afrocity, that is love.”

And I will answer “That is not love, that is just plain stupid.”

You are not doing that person any favors by viewing them with rose colored glasses (extra strength prescription, bifocals). You see them as they are so they can see themselves in an honest and clear manner

People will often say things to you in life that you want to believe however, your faith in them means nothing unless they are committed to keeping their word.

When it comes to elected officials, rather than falling susceptible to campaign slogans and charismatic speeches. Speeches are a dime a dozen. I liken them to rice bowls.  A clever speech can arouse your emotions and fill you up pretty quickly, yet you are left running out for a hamburger later—you need more substance, more beef.

Learn to stop being an enabler. Criticize them, listen to the arguments of the opposing side. Ask questions, look at their record, call them out for the change they promised but did not deliver on. I do not care what political party they are affiliated with.  Republican, Independent, Green Party, or Democrat– a liar is a liar.

barack-obama-liar

By the year 2012, President Obama’s record should present a pretty accurate picture of what he will and will not do.

Will you enable him by falling yet again for the same empty slogans? The same promises he will not keep? He will tell you that he did not have enough time.  I say but you promised “change” from day one, not year four.

drink upThere are two kinds of voters. The smart voters who know that candidates will say and do anything to get you into the sack. The smart voters scrutinize the notches on the candidates bedpost. The smart voters make decisions based on the present while being informed of the past. The smart voters know the difference between an albatross and an unfortunate acquaintance.

You disliked the policies of George W. Bush? Great so did I.

Does that mean I am voting against John McCain because of it? No. McCain is not Bush. In fact Barack Obama and George W, Bush have more in common.

Are you disappointed in Bill Clinton because he slept with Monica Lewinsky?  Great so am I.  Did I vote for Al Gore in 2000? Yes.

Which voter are you?

Thursday Stitch n’ Bitch: Stars Should Be Seen And Not Heard July 16, 2009

Obama superstar Afrocity has been on the down low lately. I have to take my occasional breaks from the news and Obamatrons.  I recall my grandmother whispering that old saying in my ear, when I was being a bad girl usually because of my snarky mouth:

“Children should be seen and not heard”.

What does it mean exactly?

Children should be well behaved and not speak?

From opposite sides of the remote control, I decided on Tuesday night not to watch anything related to politics.  I would get back to my workout routine. Sweat pants on, iPod and bottled water in hand, I take the elevator to the gym.  Once in the room, there are two other men lifting weights and making guttural sounds. I hate working out in front of others but decided to stay when I saw that the MLB All Star Game was playing on two television sets.

I strapped my legs with the nylon and Velcro 2lbs weights, mounted the treadmill. If I walked through the 4th inning that shoudl be at least 200 calories burned. I would not have to feel guilty about the entire movie theatre sized box of Good & Plenty coated licorice candies I had consumed the day before, or the bowl of strawberry ice cream, or the pizza I had on Saturday.  Taking a a deep breath I set my speed to 4.0 and inclined the treadmill to a steep 4.5.   Although the benefits of working out are amazing, I HATE IT but my 40th birthday is approaching in a few weeks and I want to tone and lose about 5 lbs.  Damn my mother who gave me the thighs with cellulite that I have to  massage every night with Bliss’ “Fat Girl Slim” cream which contains caffeine and seaweed.  Okay I am depressed again, concentrate and watch the damn baseball game.  Nothing like a relaxing workout while watching a ballgame…Until I see Barack Obama’s face. What? @#&!@?  What is he doing on there? Can’t I watch a ballgame with seeing this man? Isn’t it enough that I have to see his face on every magazine in the checkout line? That his name crops into every conversation I have, even with my gynecologist? ARGH.

obama_era Obama is really not our president, he is a rock star. The Obamabots who voted for him fail to admit that his administration is faltering. They don’t care. They just LOVE Barack Obama. Who cares that America is going to hell.

Dick Morris had an interesting column the other day. I know, I know many of my readers do not like Dick Morris because of the things he said about Hillary Clinton but I have to admit that when it comes to Barack Obama, this Dick makes a lot of sense.

The Hill

Obama’s shifty economics

by Dick Morris

July 14, 2009

Now President Obama says in The Washington Post that he never envisioned that his stimulus package would afford quick relief to the American economy, but would do so only after it had run its two-year course. But when it was passed, Obama sang a different tune, urgently demanding its enactment to speed relief to a sagging economy. He claimed it would “create or save” 600,000 jobs. Now, even as the economy loses 450,000 jobs each month, he pretends that it is a matter of time until the stimulus kicks in.

He now justifies the stimulus package by saying it was adopted to prevent the “collapse” of the economy and the banking systems. But it was really the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), first passed under President Bush, that stopped the banks from going under. At the time of the enactment of the stimulus package, Obama never mentioned that he was counting on it to save the banks

All these shifting justifications are designed to explain why the stimulus package has totally failed to accomplish anything. Not only has it done no good. It has done significant harm by ballooning the deficit, driving up interest rates, creating doubts about the U.S. currency and fanning inflationary fears.

But Obama has paid and will continue to pay dearly for betting on his stimulus package. Because of it, the Bush recession is becoming the Obama recession much faster than it would have had he adopted a more gradual approach to solving economic problems. By jumping in immediately, as he did, in order to increase government spending and pass eight years of Democratic dreams in one day, he made the public expect a solution…

Finally, Obama has laid a trap for himself. Just as the economy is coming out of its recession — in 2010 and 2011 — and he begins to run for reelection, he is going to face massive inflation. The money supply has more than tripled since October of 2008 and is going up each week as the Fed buys Treasury bills and other securities to “monetize the debt” (i.e., give other people money so they can lend it back to the government and charge it interest for doing so). With each new infusion of cash, the problem of avoiding inflation becomes particularly severe. Obama could well lose the elections of 2012 because of the inflation his deficit has created.

I hope that Mr. Morris is correct.  Yes, that is cruel of me to say but I want a president that actually does work.  Stars should be seen on the red carpet, not the oval office. A president should be a leader, not groveling at every opportunity. A president makes things, he does break things and speaking of breaking things Mr. President, you might want to invest in a Plexiglas teleprompter.

Moonbat Monday: Obamabuttics philius (Obamabutts) May 18, 2009

President Moonbat

Chatting on the phone with friends is one of my least favorite things and something I reserve for only my best friends. My friend “Helen” lives in Texas she is a very rare yellow rose of the Liberalis variety. It is very fortunate for our friendship that the subject of politics rarely creeps into our conservation – until this weekend. Helen is a political free bird, she voted for Nader in 2000 because she believed what the media told her about Al Gore- that he was too wooden.  Hillary Clinton was her choice for Democratic nominee but when she lost to Barack Obama, Helen easily adopted the “hopenchange” mantra.  With the Obama presidency well underway and all ready riddled with gaffes and terrible mistakes, I wondered if Helen had a change of heart about Barack Obama. I was wrong.

Somehow the conversation turned to our shitty economy. I asked Helen if she had noticed any change in Texas due to the stimulus. She answered “no” and I continued by bashing the stimulus not really mentioning the name Obama once.

Afrocity, I like Barack Obama and I think he is doing a good job…I voted for Hillary but you know I really like him.”  Helen was very pleasant and gracious in that Southern hospitality way when she said this to me but I still wondered if it was a warning for me to shut my mouth.

Helen was genteel but firm, “I like him a lot”

I teased, “Yes our economy sucks and Michelle Obama is wearing $500 sneakers.”

Helen was silent and said “I LIKE OBAMA..Don’t you?”

“No, I am a Republican now.”

“Oh.”

There was a momentary commemorative silence for the death of my liberalism.

“So did you see Wolverine?” Helen asked.

Funny how Barack Obama can alter even the best friendships. My dear friend of 14 years is obviously in the early stages of becoming a moonbat- a feisty but hospital Obamabuttics philius.

The Obamabuttics philius or  “Obamabutt” moonbat can be found throughout most of the United States but especially in northern urban areas and the west coast. This prolific moonbat was first discovered in 2004, after Obama gave his speech at the DNC convention.  It receives its name from its glazed over appearance and pathological love for Barack Obama. Their tongue exhibits a unique purple-ish cast from the Kool Aid they so love to consume. Obamabutts possess an unusually astute awareness of all things anti-Obama. That is the trademark for this particular moonbat- total devotion to Barack Obama and intense hatred for anyone who poses a threat to him.

Obamabuttics philius are an abundant species and easily visible. They will usually wear some sort of clothing or accesory that identifies them as an Obamabutt . To maximize the number of Obamabuttics philius species that visit your yard you’ll want to offer a variety of traps that point to your being not on board with the Obama program such as stained glass windows, a yellow ribbon displayed some place, an American flag, jockey lawn ornaments, a Hillary Clinton sticker, symbols against socialism.  However be warned, Obamabuttics philius damage is one of the biggest concerns facing conservative property owners today. For many homeowners, the threat of vandalism from raving Obamabutt problems is ever looming.

It is believed that for every Obama moonbat, 6 more are nearby. If you have a moonbat watching partner, have him sit facing the opposite direction. When that first sign of Obama criticism rears its head, the Obamabutt will show up. Hungry and ready for a fight. Full of vitriol and accusations of racism.  Obamabuttics philius can be flakey. They are really not Democrats, neither disposed as natural supporters of the political party, but rather just lovers of Barack Obama.

Here is an example of such an exchange

Innocent voter:  I am somewhat disappointed in Obama. I though he would govern more from the center but it appears that he is not really a Democrat or a Republican-

Obamabutt: YOU ARE A RACIST!!!!!

The Obamabutt will then emit a foul death stare that attracts other Obamabutts.  They will even leave a fitting room partially dressed to confront you.  Surround you they will, until you pretend to surrender the pink—your tongue that is. Obamabuttics philius will see that it is not quite purple enough. They will attempt to fix that for ya.

For Obamabuttics philius there is no allowance for the slightest inkling of Obama criticism to muddy the water he walks on. This is especially true of Obamabuttics philius medialis. The Obamabutts in the mainstream media are among the species most potent and will go to great lengths to protect “The One”.  Wielding vast amounts of manipulation and the obvious lack of respect for ethics in journalism, the Obamabuttics philius medialis is a prominent and important architect of society’s transition into Obama mania.

The Mutated "Muttonis Obamabuttics philius" or Sheeple

Often a family member will watch a loved one suffer and plummet into advances stages of Obama mania. This is a sad sight indeed. You come home from work one day to find that your usually productive spouse has painted your Lexus and Obama’s face is now all over it.  In extreme cases the skin will break out in an Obama tattoo. Imagine making love to your girl friend, you are in for a nice session of “doggie style” and the ass in your face has the Obama hopenchange symbol plastered on each butt cheek. That would kill any erection for sure. What can you do?

This may sound like a twist of irony but there is little hope for those bitten by the hopenchange bug to change. Turning them back is possible. There are rumors that it has been done somewhere in Seattle, in a dark room with lots of shock therapy and no access to television or Twitter. When starting up a recovery program for Obamabuttics philius , I am told that one must be patient. It may take as long as several years before they discover that Barack Obama is a flip flopping fraud.  In the meantime take cautionary measures that you do not become infected by this disease. Delete all Obamagram emails that any Obamabuttics philius sends you. Do not watch Jay-z videos, MSNBC, CNN, or Good Morning America. And for God’s sake do not attend an Obama town hall meeting. I don’t care if you have been unemployed for two years. Stay away from opportunities that introduce Kool Aid into your life. No Scarlett Johansson  films, no coffee houses, Bruce Springsteen concerts, or snow boarding events. Just stay away.
