Well, I waited for a while to see if any more lib-speak came in; perhaps the adrenalin has waned. In response to previous knee-jerk reactions to my one-liner describing the president as an Aztec (i.e. red and black), gentlemen, calling a black man black is not racist. In your haste to fire back, you missed the “red” part. Calling a radical socialist a “red” is fitting: How else does one explain his failure to make JOBS his first priority instead of enacting a Trojan Horse medical plan?
JFK said, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” It is apparent that President Obama believes that the U.S. is “...just too powerful and successful; it is my job to bring America into line with the rest of the world.” (Excuse us, as we sink a little more.) While the foundation of our Constitution goes back to ancient Greece, our ultra-lib Prexy would have our economy resemble that of modern Greece, now a pauper nation standing in line for German marks.
While I am a lifetime Democrat, my party now exists in name only. Our last true Democrat was Harry S. Truman and, possibly, if he had lived, JFK might have qualified, as he was a fiscal conservative (look it up, boys). LBJ, JFK’s successor, was the next socialist after FDR, throwing billions at inner-city, high-rise apartments that became vertical slums, and food stamps that were subverted for drugs and the favors of whores. (Jon, I understand your revulsion with Vietnam, but that was LBJ’s Big Lie. It took Richard Nixon to get us out of it. If coffee is too strong a beverage, you need to wake up and smell the tea.)
Next up was James Earl Carter, who stood by as Iranian “students” built a head of steam, and eventually took our embassy staff hostage, who were then tortured for 444 days. The Russian embassy was also threatened, but the Reds had a much better response: the would-be “student leader” disappeared and some time later the group leadership received his head in a box, and that ended the assault.
After the administrations of Ronald Reagan (when I became a born-again Dem with Truman ideals), we saw Bush One’s ratings soar after our military’s success in Iraq, only to fall precipitously when the Dems snowed him on a “no new taxes” shell game.
Clinton’s admins were a wash. He held the U.S. steady in his eight years, but permitted top-secret missile technology to fall into Chinese hands.
While Bush II continued to deal harshly with Muslim terrorists in the Middle East, in eight years he ran up the national debt $4 trillion, with such liberal fantasies as “No Child Left Behind,” which wearied elementary school teachers nationwide; and he pursued some other Dem pipedreams, as well.
It has now taken the South Side community organizer just four years to match the Bush II eight-year debacle, and drive us to the dreaded cliff. Obama had never looked back, and doen’t intend to...the ObamaCare documents comprise over 2,500 pages. Does anyone believe that AARP, Blue Cross, CIGNA, Kaiser, Prudential, or UHC operate with such a mish-mash of hastily-drawn socialist hocus-pocus?
