Okay guys, I've been trying SO HARD to keep my mouth shut on this site when it comes to Obama, because I know everyone here thinks he's the Second Coming or something, but I finally gotta weigh in since theres been plenty of McCain/Republican bashing going on.
::cracks knuckles:: Here we go.
I won't get into the politics to much here. I want to focus on how absurdly anti-American this dude and his wife are. They are on such a high horse talking about how America sucks, and how America isn't what it should be blah blah blah. They seem to be doing pretty okay to me. Has America wronged them some how? Last time I checked they're doing just fine.
Here is a SMALL list of things that this supposed American power couple has said about America/ns.
OBAMA: They get bitter. They cling to guns or religion or antipathy towards people who aren't like them.
MICHELLE OBAMA: Barack knows there's a hole in our soul.
OBAMA: I know my country has not perfected itself.
MICHELLE OBAMA: It's easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions. It makes you feel justified in your ignorance. That's America.
OBAMA: We're confronting the history and stain of slavery in this country. We're confronting those scars.
MICHELLE OBAMA: For the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country.
OBAMA: America, uh, is -- is no longer, uh, what it -- it could be, what it once was.
Rush (which I KNOW you guys just love) had this to say: I'm sitting there listening to this, and I'm thinking, "I'm hearing sort of a cleaned up version of what Jeremiah Wright thinks." (doing Jeremiah Wright impression) America's chickens are coming home to roost! Evil white people!
Obama gets asked a very simple question by a seven-year-old girl. She asked him "Mr. Obama, why do you want to be President?" Should have been simple enough right? "Well little girl, because I love America. I think America is the best country in the world and I'd like to do everything in my power to protect what our founding fathers put into place for us. I feel so fortunate to be an American, and I just want to help lead the most BAD ASS super cool country evAr!"
Except for thats not exactly what went down:
Rush commented on the issue by verbalizing exactly what I was thinking:
All right, now, here he's brought it home. He had trashed his country in Germany, he has seen the result of that in his plummeting poll numbers, and now he does it again in Elkhart, Indiana, to a seven-year-old little girl. You're running for president, Senator Obama. A little girl asks you a question, "Why did you start running for president?" It's a seven-year-old, Senator. You tell her because you love the country. You tell her because this is the greatest place on earth, that we've got challenges, but you want to help the country through it. You don't tell a seven-year-old that her country isn't what it once was. You do not lie to seven-year-olds and tell them that your country sucks. You just don't do it, Senator. America is no longer what it could be, what it once was? How the hell would you know, sir? Your experience has only been in one part of America, elite, leftist academia. Oh, and with Jeremiah Wright. You've hung around with a bunch of people who do hate this country, there's no question about that. But for crying out loud, to a seven-year-old? America is, uh, no longer, uh, what it, uh, could be, what it, uh, once was, and I say to myself I don't want that future for my children. You wouldn't want your life and your wife's life for your kids?
Before you decided to run for president, Senator Obama, your wife was pulling down 300 grand working in PR at a hospital. You had written two books that got you out of debt. What is wrong with your life? What is wrong with the opportunities in this country that had been made available to you, that you wouldn't want for that seven-year-old girl that asked you the question? What's so bad about your life that you wouldn't want your kids living it? You're running for president of the United States, and you've run down the country to a seven-year-old. We've got to have better than this out there.
I won't even get into how he said that if people had their tires properly inflated then we could stop offshore drilling... OH my gosh, I won't EVEN start.
