This Is Your President (reminder) January 1, 2009

I did not vote for Barack Hussein Obama, not because of his name or race, but because of his lack of character and politics built on sand, with no root. From election day to year’s end, his cabinet appointments are filled with Clinton re-treads and, without a teleprompter, his speech is riddled with “ahs” like a teenager. This doesn’t instill confidence from those who didn’t/don’t support him and I have to wonder if it is the change his supporters really voted for. Only God can save this great nation.

Here is your President:

“It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance for success too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” —Barack Obama

“You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

– Senator Barack Obama (April 6, 2008)

“Let’s be clear,” Mr. Obama said sternly. “What we’ve seen the last few days is nothing less than the final verdict on an economic philosophy that has completely failed.” – New York Times, Sep 17, 2008

“I know there are those who dismiss such beliefs as happy talk. They claim that our insistence on something larger, something firmer and more honest in our public life is just a Trojan Horse for higher taxes and the abandonment of traditional values. And that’s to be expected. Because if you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things. And you know what – it’s worked before. Because it feeds into the cynicism we all have about government. When Washington doesn’t work, all its promises seem empty. If your hopes have been dashed again and again, then it’s best to stop hoping, and settle for what you already know. I get it.” -Barack Obama, from DNC acceptance speech

According to the Associated Press story, Senator Obama gave the little girl a brief explanation of his plan for universal health insurance coverage and improved education. Then he explained his view that the wealthy should pay the expenses of people who are not wealthy:

“We’ve got to make sure that people who have more money help the people who have less money,” Sen. Obama said. “If you had a whole pizza, and your friend had no pizza, would you give him a slice?”

Barack, the rock star, in Berlin:

“I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we’ve struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We’ve made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.” [Ed. note: I have no apology to Europeans, or anyone else for that matter]

And a final thought…

“Obama is a three-year senator without a single important legislative achievement to his name, a former Illinois state senator who voted ‘present’ nearly 130 times. As president of the Harvard Law Review, as law professor and as legislator, has he ever produced a single notable piece of scholarship? Written a single memorable article? His most memorable work is a biography of his favorite subject: himself.” —Charles Krauthammer
