Barack Obama is a man who has gained everything and learned nothing. How is it possible that a man who has experienced quite possibly the highest quality of life and accomplishment in this amazing country can be so ignorant and bitter?
This is a man who has received free Ivy League educations, personally met with countless celebrities, heroes and world leaders, traveled the world in luxury, and had the honor of serving as Commander in Chief, the leader of the free world. It truly is a shame that as he heads out the door he can’t help but make an ass out of himself.
During an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, soon to be former President Barrack Obama offered his explanation regarding southern states opposition to him:
“I think there’s a reason why attitudes about my presidency among whites in Northern states are very different from whites in Southern states,” Obama told Zakaria. “Are there folks whose primary concern about me has been that I seem foreign, the other? Are those who champion the ‘birther’ movement feeding off of bias? Absolutely.”
Absolutely? How about that is absolutely insulting you smug, ignorant jerk. How is it possible that this man was ever going to ‘heal’ our nation with poisonous rhetoric like that? I think the question here is whether Barack Obama truly thinks this or if he simply believes it’s politically beneficial to continue stoking racial fires as a means of attacking conservatives. Maybe it’s both. The fact of the matter is that the majority of ‘southern whites’ are not racist, we’re conservatives (raises hand), and conservatism is a belief system that opposes everything Barack and his Marxist tyranny represents.
In other words… it’s the ideas, stupid.
Has Barack forgotten that in my own state of South Carolina we have elected – multiple times now – the very popular Governor Nikki Haley? It doesn’t get much more ‘foreign’ than an Indian born woman, Barack. Say, which party is she in? Oh yea, the Republican party. I guess we were willing to overlook our deep seated racial hatred to get some tax cuts and patriotism. Or maybe it was never about race at all? Perish the thought.
In this very same state, we southern whites (and the rest of us who prefer to simply be known as Americans) have elected with overwhelming enthusiasm a black man to the Senate by the name of Tim Scott. He is a solid conservative, a patriot, and a decent, honorable man who never uses his skin color has a political weapon. Scott also has an 89% rating at Conservative Review. Gosh, if he was only a white guy he’d be at 100%, right? Wrong. That’s moronic. But what is my opinion worth to Barack Obama.. I’m just a southern white guy. I’m to be dismissed.
Only racist bigots who see the world as nothing but biased interactions between different skin colors and ethnic groups thinks this way, and that’s exactly what Barack Obama is.
The author nailed it. Obama has learned nothing in 8 years. In fact, I submit he has gotten more ignorant and resolute in his racism. Nothing that he has ever touched, and turned to shit, has ever been his fault. Not ever. It’s always about race. It has never occurred to him that his ideas and policies sucked, and the American people didn’t want anymore of it. They sure as hell didn’t want Hillary as she promised more of the same. Americans rejected Obama for a myriad of reasons but mostly because he held contempt and outright hate for those that produce, or wish to.
Obama’s true legacy will be that he turned back the clock on race relations in this country by 50 years. He was elected by whites, TWICE, with the hope that doing so would heal this nation’s racial wounds. He blew it. Instead he doubled down in his stupidity and was rejected for it. Obama wasn’t rejected only by whites. His rejection (a repudiation of Hillary) came from every demographic.
A smart man learns from his mistakes. Obama may be clever but he is not smart. In the end, he has proven himself a hateful little man bereft of introspection as proven with his own words and deeds. Honest historians will not be kind to him.
Obama’s only talent has been community organizing whereas he spoke to the lemmings and pointed out inequities and convinced them it was the white man’s fault. He did the same with all minorities, women and working stiffs. He made a lot of promises and has kept none of them except he did fundamentally change America, and not for the better.
39 days and counting when this sorry excuse for a president leaves our house.
