Hit the spoiler block if you want to know why I've been writing so many articles recently.
For those of you wondering why I have made so many posts recently, I thought I would let you know that the reason is that I am going to start a blog. For the past week, I have been typing up things as they come to mind and posting them here just to get some preliminary feedback. I hold a Libertarian viewpoint, so I have some serious issues with the left, and I have made three anti-liberal posts this week. The first was about President Obama's hypocrisy regarding being his brother's keeper which was something I threw together quickly after hearing a news story. The second was an old article I had written simply mocking stupid comments from liberals on Youtube which was actually only posted for the benefit of one person, but I was pleased to see it actually received a moderately good response. After consideration, I decided I could do a better version of the first article giving some more examples of things I dislike about the President, and that turned into this article. I've actually been sitting on this article for three days because I did not want to have multiple negative posts on President Obama circulating at the same time, but Vaternus and Isaac seem determined never to let my "President Obama's Character" article die, so I decided to go ahead and throw this out.
I also have some serious issues with the right, and for those of you wishing I would be more balanced in my bashing, know that my Mitt Romney is a horrible person article is on my agenda. I have also already started a conservative version of my stupid youtube comments compilation. You can definitely expect that by next week. I do not know that I will continue to post these articles in Off-Topic after I "open" my blog, but you will probably still see several more articles over the next couple of weeks at least.
I am not only doing political commentary. I have also done a review of Paranorman and a review of almost all the current Batman titles (I want to review all of the Bat Verse comics on my blog, but it is taking some time to write good reviews on all the current comics. I've managed to get eight out in one week while working on other projects, and I am pretty happy with that. I will also probably be doing some religious musings (it will not be pointed since my religious views are in flux at the moment. They will be more self-reflective than anything). I also have a Red Robin story that I am working on, and I think it will be really great, but time will tell.
I did not expect great responses to my anti-liberal articles since comics skew to a younger demographic, and younger people tend to be more liberal, but I still appreciate all of you who read my articles and take the time to compose thoughtful responses. My second point in this article is a repeat of my previous article, and the first point is debatable, but I would like to see if anyone can honestly say that point number three is anything other than morally abhorrent. Thus far, I have not seen anyone disagree and manage to give an explanation of how I am wrong...which just indicates to me that you cannot. Please, if you have good thoughts about something, kindly share them with me. I think the Mod RazzaTazz would be willing to confirm that I am polite and willing to discuss differing viewpoints.
Three Reasons President Obama Is a Horrible Person
When Barack Obama first entered the world’s stage in 2007, I, like many Americans, found him to be a very nice man. Granted, I never liked what I knew of his policies, but he seemed to be an eloquent, compassionate family man, and who doesn’t like that?
Since then, many things have come out which clearly indicate the true nature of Barack Obama’s character, yet many still seem to worship at the shrine of Obama lifting him up as the moral arbiter of our day. Those that still hold this view are either tragically misinformed or possess a staggering set of distorted morals. For those who are not morally lost, I ask that you give me a chance to convince you that Barack Obama is a truly horrible person.
Reason #1 The Obama Stimulus Package
One of the phrases Obama continually uttered during his run for the Oval Office was “the failed politics of the past” referring most often to the soon-to-be-leaving President George W. Bush, and let’s be fair, Bush gave Obama plenty of material to criticize. Among other criticisms, Barack accurately blasted Bush for spending over five trillion dollars in debt. During his campaign and inaugural speech, President Obama promised to reign in over spending, yet...
Almost immediately upon taking office, President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 in an effort to stop the nation’s downward financial spiral. This was round two of the stimulus plan that President Bush had signed into law in 2008, a piece of legislation that famously and spectacularly failed to stop the hemorrhaging of jobs. However, this did not dissuade President Obama from following in President Bush’s staggering footsteps, and with this single piece of legislation, President Obama racked up 831 billion dollars worth of debt in his first month in office! Let’s look at that once more in slow motion. It took President Obama one month to rack up a sixth of the amount of debt that President Bush created in eight years. Someday, the citizens of the United States will have to pay for that stimulus package, but President Obama is more than happy to sell out the future in order to make a meaningless gesture in the present.
Of course, President Obama’s spending did not stop there. Within two years in office, President Obama had nearly matched the amount President Bush had spent in his eight years, and as of last March, President Obama surpassed President Bush’s legacy of fiscal ineptitude. The American people should give President Obama a medal. Perhaps he would like to hang it up next to his noble peace prize.
All of these debt numbers assume that the Congressional Budget Office’s estimates for programs are correct (and government programs almost always cost more than projected). Furthermore, the biggest piece of legislation Obama has passed, Obamacare, has not yet kicked in, so none of those numbers have begun to contribute to Obama’s debt tally.
Reason #2 Obama’s “Charitable” Spirit
President Obama presents himself as someone with great moral integrity and pureness of heart. His excellent speeches manage to touch so many because they have an inspiring undertone wherewith President Obama urges the American people to do their best, help out where able, turn away from divisiveness, and contribute to a sort of collective altruism. Barack even likes to intersperse his messages with Biblical phrases to drive home certain themes such as “love thy neighbor” and “brother’s keeper.” Just check out this quote from one of President Obama’s speeches and envision his righteous anger and soul inspiring sincerity as you read.
“If there's a child on the south side of Chicago who can't read, that matters to me, even if it's not my child. If there's a senior citizen somewhere who can't pay for their prescription, who has to choose between medicine and the rent, that makes my life poorer - even if it's not my grandparent. If there's an Arab-American or Mexican-American family being rounded up by John Ashcroft without benefit of an attorney or due process, I know that that threatens my civil liberties. And I don't have to be a woman to be concerned that the Supreme Court is trying to take away a woman's right, because I know that my rights are next. It is that fundamental belief - I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper - that makes this country work.”
No doubt these words have inspired millions, but it is all a complete load of nonsense. President Obama has no true interest in being his brother’s keeper as evidenced by the fact that he has allowed his literal brother to live in poverty for the last five years. To be fair, George Obama, Barack Obama’s half-brother, has only met the President a couple of times, and he has never asked for special favors. That being said, President Obama is fully aware that George Obama lives in a small shanty in the slums of Kenya. George lives off a couple of dollars a day, and he recently found himself on the edge of financial disaster when he could not pay his son’s medical bills, a measly $1,000, which is the equivalent of nearly a year’s worth of work to the poor man. George Obama has applied for citizenship in the United States demonstrating that he is looking for a better life, but he was denied, and his big brother has made no effort to help him in any way.
Barack Obama’s hesitation to lend assistance is understandable. After all, the current leader of the free world is strapped for cash barely possessing 11.8 million dollars in assets, and who among us would be willing to part with a whole grand just to help a blood relative provide healthcare for a seriously ill relative? The liberal apologists have handled this situation by ignoring the issue, but if you manage to corner a liberal debater on the issue, they will tell you that George Obama has stated that he wants to make it on his own, and that he does not expect assistance from the President. It is true that George said he did not want special favors from the President, but there is a huge difference between having your needs met for life (which the President could easily do for George without even making a noticeable dent in his portfolio) and lending aid in a crisis situation. The idea that George would not accept assistance was clearly disproven when George called up Dinish D’Souza, a Republican filmmaker he barely knew, and begged him for money to pay his son’s healthcare bill.
There are other examples of President’ Obama’s fiscal hypocrisy. His aunt, Zeituni Onyango, lives in poverty, but she lives in the United States and draws welfare, so it is hardly as dark a situation as that of George Obama. Still, President Obama has never made any effort to assist her. In the years 2002-2005, the great humanitarian Barack Obama only managed to give approximately one percent of his income to charities despite the fact that he was making more than $200,000, and of course that does not count the money Michelle Obama made. Again to be fair, President’s Obama’s charitable contributions have greatly increased as he has become more and more a public figure, but this is not a sign of true charity, but a sign of political posturing. When he was out of the public eye, Barack Obama, a member of the wealthiest one percent, only contributed one penny of each dollar to those in need.
When it comes to the pocket book, it is clear that Barack Obama is a very generous man willing to open a wallet to help the needy. However, he will be opening your wallet rather than his own.
Reason 3 Obama’s Pro-Infanticide Position
Though the conservative media continually digs up new dirt on President Obama which gives great insight into his character, the tidbit that disturbs me most about our President is one that we have known for a long, long time.
Obama is an extremist on abortion. He approves abortion not only in cases of incest or rape, but even when it is simply an inconvenience to the mother. Beyond that, he has campaigned on behalf of partial birth abortion, the procedure wherein labor is induced on a fully formed baby, but the head is kept in the mother. While the child struggles, a doctor slices open the back of the baby’s head and sucks out the brains with a high-powered vacuum. How anyone can approve of this is beyond my understanding, but Barack Obama does not flinch from partial birth abortion, nor does he stop there.
While working as an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama defended doctors’ “rights” to refuse healthcare to a child born who is born via a botched abortion. In other words, if a woman delivers a child that was only partially destroyed while in the womb or slips out before a partial birth abortion can be completed, Barack Obama said it was okay for the doctors or nurses to take the infant into a closet, close the door, and wait until the crying stops.
This is the man that is leading the country today.
I cannot imagine why anyone would support him.
