President Barack Hussein Obama inflicted a news conference on us today, Friday September 10, 2010. It was a shameful display of the contempt in which he holds the citizens of the United States. The skill he possesses to artfully disseminate lies, half-truths and disinformation is seemingly boundless.
Obama’s appeal to the American people to stand by the nation’s belief in religious tolerance is hypocritical and reprehensible. It’s OK for Muslims to build a mosque at Ground Zero or espouse jihad but it’s not OK to conduct a National Day of Prayer or to burn the Quran. He encourages tolerance for Muslims but has not even the respect to mention Pastor Terry Jones by name. His disdain for the American cleric is obvious in referring to Pastor Jones as “the individual in Florida.”
He stated “If you could build a church on a site, you could build a synagogue on a site, you could build a Hindu temple on a site, then you should be able to build a mosque on a site.” Mr. President, Christians, Jews or Hindus did not fly passenger jet aircraft into the World Trade Center in hopes of crippling our economy and murdering innocent people, Muslims did. Obama says he is a Christian and so it may be so. But Obama’s pastor, Jeremiah Wright preached hate and “God Damn America.” If that is Obama’s brand of Christianity it’s not the Christianity I know and embrace. If he isn’t a Muslim he is certainly a Muslim enabler. He rails against the Christian right but embraces and encourages Muslim tolerance. Obama says he doesn’t want Americans to “live in fear” of attack. I don’t live in fear of a Muslim attack. I live in fear of a president whose actions contradict his words.
Obama’s arrogance continued on the topic of the economy. He’s apparently come to the realization that Election Day will likely happen. He hasn’t yet declared a national emergency and martial law and suspended elections (a possibility that I would not preclude) and he is face-to-face with resounding rejection of his Marxist socialist agenda. Political Judgment Day is nearly here. The White House is in panic mode. So does he accept the responsibility for his failed schemes? Of course not, he simply says that voters may blame the “weak recovery” on him. If not him, then whom? And in my haste to write this I must have missed the recovery completely.
Suddenly he speaks of tax cuts and wonders aloud why Republicans won’t cooperate. Ah yes, blame anyone to avoid taking ownership of your failures, a favorite liberal ploy. But his tax cuts don’t involve the wealthiest Americans, you know the smart, successful business owners who take risks and create jobs that are not government jobs but we shouldn’t expect a Marxist to even acknowledge a proven capitalist idea.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention that Obama opened the press conference with the announcement of the appointment of Austan Goolsbee as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors. Great, still another Chicago crony who has advised Obama since 2008. Another academic voice in an ideological regime devoid of common sense and practical experience in monetary policy. He replaces Christina Romer who recently left (deserted the sinking ship) the regime intelligencia to return to a safe teaching position at that bastion of conservative thought, the University of California, Berkeley.
Obama praised Romer as “part of the team that helped save this country from a recession.” Whoops, I must have had a Rip Van Winkle episode because I didn’t know we didn’t have a recession. Another lie, another insult to my intelligence and that of all Americans.
I hope Obama doesn’t have another press conference soon, I don’t know if this laptop will stand for more heavy pounding on the keyboard.
