Missing the Point

Some of Obama's defenders are really off base. We are in the worst economy since the Great Depression. He did inherit the mess, but there is the perception he is doing nothing other self promotion.

The defenders who claim that his critics are being racist when they here the phrase "we want our country back". are off base. This criticism is natural and logical given the dire economy. What that phrase means to me is that the person saying it is unhappy with the direction of the country.

The exact same phrase was typically stated at President critics often by people who
call themselves "citizens of the planet". When you hear this phrase you are almost certainly dealing with a Commie or Fruit Loop certified looney tunes nutbar.

Obama's critic's want a return to American values. They do not care what some gin drinking obnoxious Euro's think in a salon. They are more concerned with their neighbors who are shopping at Walmart and are in tough times. These people want to here one word JOBS. They do not care about some idiotic meeting in Copenhagen or health care.

Americans want to work, but it is tough out there. The perception that Obama is more interested in the opinions of European elitists than his constituency is a real problem. He took a major dive in the polls when he went to Europe and seems oblivious to this perception and his popularity rating dive is reflective of someone who is being viewed as out of touch.

None of these issues is racial in any description.

The important thing to remember is, these accusations of racism were predictable, and everybody sees through them. That is by the way and most importantly the independent voters, and for that matter even a respectable number of "Blue Dog" Democrats who put Obama in office and who are now suffering buyer's remorse (which was also predictable to anybody with a brain).

I don't pay them any mind regardless, because I know pretty damn well that if the president happened to be a conservative, or even a moderate, especially a Republican conservative or moderate, the same people crying racism now would be slamming the President of the United States as an "Uncle Tom".

And people wonder why I want to encourage these assholes to abort their babies ever chance they get.

Yeah, it sounds harsh and cruel, I guess, but it's nothing near as harsh and cruel as what will happen to the country and by extension all of this if these assholes aren't reigned in by any means possible.

Well, it's legal for them to abort themselves out of existence, and they are the ones who insisted that be possible. Let's just keep things the way they are and hope for the fucking best.

Labeling any criticism of BHO as racism is playing the race card.

I'm sick and tired of that nonsense.

Sure, there are racists out there. Like the poor, they will always be with us.

But exempting BHO from criticism on the basis of his race is wearing mighty thin.

Whose perception is that other than yours? You are truly delusional.

That is the perception of the American people. He took a serious dive in the polls in the election when he went to Europe and sucked up.
The job of a President is to serve the interests of the American people. Sucking up to obnoxious Euros far left hacks is not in the job description.

"Sucking up to obnoxious Euros far left hacks is not in the job description"

If anything, the job description calls for the exact polar opposite, seeing as how the country originated from a war to rid ourselves of those motherfuckers. People like Ducky seem to want us to bow down to them all over again. Personally, I'll see them dead and in hell before I ever bow down to them.

Live free or die, and all that.

HaHa, I think I've found Ducky's new scream name in the word verification for this-
