Barack Obama greeted the White House Press Corespondents by saying, “My name is Barack Obama. Most of you covered me. All of you voted for me.”
I don’t know how funny that was, but it certainly had the virtue of being true. The media is so completely biased today, and has turned into such a pro-liberal, pro-Obama propaganda operation, that it is positively unreal.
But it was Wanda Sykes who expressed the unspoken zeitgeist of the mainstream media.
Rush Limbaugh, one of your big critics, boy, Rush Limbaugh said he hopes this administration fails. So, you’re saying “I hope America fails,” it’s like, I don’t care about people losing their homes, or their jobs, our soldiers in Iraq. He just wants the country to fail. To me, that’s treason. He’s not saying anything differently than what Osama bin Laden is saying. You know, you might want to look into this, Sir, because I think maybe Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker, but he was just so strung out on oxycontin he missed his flight.
And you’ll notice if you watch the video that Obama clearly laughs at the rabid punchline.
And then Sykes says:
Rush Limbaugh, I hope the country fails, I hope his kidneys fail, how ’bout that? Needs a little waterboarding, that’s what he needs.
And the President of the United States thinks it’s also quite hilarious that one of his fellow citizens’ kidneys fail. Because that’s just the kind of guy he is, I guess.
And waterboarding is only torture when it is applied to terrorist murderers who want to kill Americans by the millions. It is most definitely NOT torture if its done to conservatives. Obama laughs at the thought of Rush Limbaugh being waterboarded. But the waterboarding of a terrorist responsible for over three thousand American lives is a proof that we have lost our moral bearings.
Let me contrast Obama with a President that actually had some class. Show me footage of George Bush laughing at the idea of a terrible wasting disease befalling, oh, I don’t know, Wanda Sykes. The fact of the matter is, we used to have a President who was above that kind of rabid and clearly hateful partisanship.
And its the sheer, total, all-encompassing hypocrisy of the left that will never cease to continue to surprise me.
These same people who were for that war before they were against it, who literally hoped Bush would fail in Iraq and our troops would lose (recall Harry Reid’s proclamation of surrender when our troops were still fighting for victory: “I believe that this war is lost“), used to call dissent “the highest form of patriotism” when it suited them.
Dissent has NEVER been “the highest form of patriotism,” of course, and liberals had to butcher Thomas Jefferson the same way they butchered the Constitution to obtain that understanding. But Democrats had a “standard” that they clung to when it suited them, only to show their hypocrisy by turning on the same standard they had just held.
Kind of like the war in Iraq itself. Wanda Sykes speaks of conservatives such as Rush Limbaugh somehow betraying our soldiers in Iraq. Let’s look at who REALLY undermined and betrayed our soldiers in Iraq.
This is what these cut-and-run-cowards USED to say before they publicly claimed “this war is lost” while our troops were still in the field fighting to win:
These liberals, who backstabbed, undermined, blocked, obstructed, demonized, and demagogued Bush and his agenda at every single turn – including hoping we failed in time of war – now have a frankly terrifying view of loyalty and patriotism.
If we are against Obama, we are against the country. Because Barack Hussein Obama is our Fuhrer, and in him does the destiny of the new Reich lay. He is our Big Brother, and we owe our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor not to our principles, but to our messiah.
You tell me: was that these hypocrite liberals’ view of the Bush presidency during the last eight years?
Obama is NOT America. He is NOT our Big Brother, he is NOT our messiah, and he is most certainly not MY Fuhrer. And I will fight with words, with fists, or even with weapons if anyone tries to take away my right to say otherwise.
Rush Limbaugh has very patiently explained to some incredibly stupid and immoral people that he hopes Obama fails FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY. Obama is a hard core socialist who has already spent more money than every single president from George Washington to George W. Bush COMBINED. He is imposing a debt upon us that we and our children can never hope to repay. The average 30 year-old planning to retire at age 70 will have to pay $136,932.75 just for the interest on President Obama’s 2010 budget. And that doesn’t include the MUCH greater cost of paying for the overal deficit black hole to which Obama has added $12.8 TRILLION. The interest on the national debt–interest alone–currently amounts to over $800 million a day, and about $300 billion per year. In ten years we will be paying more than $800 billion a year in interest to finance our debt.
And we are already at a position that in order to make payments on the debt, we have to borrow more money. A Washington Post article entitled, “U.S. Debt Set to Soar This Year” points that factoid out:
But about 40 percent of the debt held by private investors will mature in a year or less, according to Treasury officials. When those loans come due, the Treasury will have to borrow more money to repay them, even as it launches perhaps the most aggressive expansion of U.S. debt in modern history.
We’re broke, but that doesn’t stop Barack Obama from trying to nationalize another one-sixth of our economy (health care) at the cost of another $634 billion – just for starters. He wants to nationalize our energy industry. He wants to nationalize the student loan program. He’s already nationalized the banks and the auto industry.
Obama’s spending will go on and on and on. If all goes well, he will only put us $9.3 trillion in the hole. Even the Congressional Budget Office acknowledges that such reckless spending is totally unsustainable.
And I’m supposed to be akin to Osama bin Laden for hoping that Barack Hussein fails in his task of bankrupting the country? Excuse me?
This was all been predicted before the election by men and women who knew a hell of a lot better than Wanda Sykes.
In a poll of chief executive officers taken prior to the election, 74 percent of the executives said they feared “that an Obama presidency would be disastrous for the country.” And some of the CEOs predicted that “some of his programs would bankrupt the country within three years, if implemented.” And with the Congress in nearly total Democratic control, they ARE being implemented.
Rush Limbaugh explained what he meant in an address that is worth reading. He explained why we should ALL hope Obama fails.
I hope Obama fails – and fails big – and that the people recognize his failure and turn on him before America goes into a hole that it will never be able to claw its way out of.
And in the meantime, I’ll wear Democrats’ charges of treason as a badge of personal honor. Being called a “traitor” by Democrats bothers me about as much as it would bother me if a child molester (whom Democrats protect as sacred cows, btw) called me “a bad person.”
