There has never been an American President less in touch with the people of the United States of America. As the day of the mid-term election draws ever closer, Democrats are bracing for the worst. The economy and jobs are the anchor around the neck of Barack Hussein Obama.
But that’s not all there is to the story. I heard Rush refer to Obama as ‘the man-child’, and in truth he does seem to have a childlike air about him that becomes more apparent as the utter mismanagement of his government is being revealed on a daily basis. His erstwhile supporters (other than the extreme left of the left) are bailing as fast as they can find someplace to bail to, which appears to be any place Obama isn’t.
On Thursday night we had a terrible fire up in the hills above San Bruno, California. I watched it from my living room window, the same window I wrote about watching fireworks from, just across the valley from me on the Fourth of July. The same neighborhood the explosion and fire took place in. My son was busy shooting video of the fire, some of which looks as good, or better, than a lot of the network stuff I’ve seen.
As I watched this whole sad drama unfold, I couldn’t help but equate that fire with Obama’s communist schemes for taking our Republic down and our freedoms with it. His scorched earth economics have backfired on him. I’m sure by now you must have seen pictures of the aftermath of the San Bruno fire. I’m no stranger to these things. I was involved in the intensive mitigation and remediation that went on after the Oakland fire, and I’ll be involved in this one too as soon as the Coroner’s people and the fire command releases the area to residents and restoration contractors.
The most striking pictures are the ones of the rows of chimneys amongst the char and foundations, because for fifty or more of these homes that’s all that’s left. Once again, I was struck by the thought that that’s exactly what our economy looks like… the aftermath of a firestorm. Fourteen million jobs lost, with true unemployment figures reaching eighteen percent.
With Obama actively working on destroying our energy sector, and its one million workers plus nationwide, it’s apparent to an overwhelming number of Americans that the anti-American Mr Obama definitely does not have our best interests at heart. Every time this loose cannon opens his mouth, he shows America just how little he understands the people he’s supposed to be serving.
I don’t want to call him a coward and a traitor, so I’ll just say that Obama doesn’t act like an American. He doesn’t get even the most basic premise of what Americans are about. He certainly hasn’t got a clue when it comes to American exceptionalism.
Obama was raised and educated in an anti-American Marxist ideology which he continues to espouse to this day. His ill-concealed predilection for anything Muslim is also very bothersome. This country is in a world-wide war with militant Islam, a war not of our choosing. The war will not end unless, or until, Islam is forced into a reformation or is utterly defeated.
November is our only chance to pull Barack Obama’s fangs. I can say without equivocation that the upcoming election is the most important of our lifetimes… perhaps in the history of our Republic.
Other thoughts that went through my mind as I watched those flames shooting a thousand feet into the air was that it was the eve of 9-11. I kept seeing those planes strike the twin towers in my mind’s eye. I’m infuriated every time I see pictures or video of that cowardly act. It wasn’t wayward Swedes or Italians who did this… it was Muslims.
While we’re planning Mr Obama’s early retirement we’d better plan on battling the foe amongst us, for that’s where this thing will eventually end up. All of the Islamist sleepers that have been pouring over our borders all these years are a butcher’s bill that is yet to be paid.
Make sure you are registered to vote and then go out and register family and friends, and encourage them to show up and vote! It’s the most important job you will ever have.
