So folks I really have to take exception to the trashy folks that are bashing President Obama on a regular basis. The main culprits are Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. These Republican Reprobates don’t seem to know the first thing about patriotism and regardless of partisan issues wishing the failure of the President is wishing for America to fail also.
For 8 years America spiraled into problems due to the mishandlings and sheer bloody mindedness of the Bush Administration and its move away from the constitution and away from the separation of church and state. We moved from a surplus of funds at the beginning of the term of office to a trillion dollar deficit. It was a shift to the back burner for democracy, liberty and freedom for all and in its place was a weird twilight zonesque America.
This strong and vital country was manipulated by fear and all faith was lost. A gun was held to our heads, not by just terrorists but by faulty the leadership and guidance under guise of morality and righteousness. When the carcass was picked clean new prophets stepped forward to quicken the pace. Thankfully our eyes had been opened to wily ways of the immoral majority and we said no to Johnny Mac and the wicked witch of Wasilla.
Sarah Palin is a quitter who comes across as an uneducated trouble monger with a yen for power. As for going rogue she clearly has an agenda for 2012 and I pray that Americans will continue to see how dangerous it would be to have someone as gung ho as her as commander in chief. She clearly has no bones regarding whom she knocks to the side as she continues on her anti Obama tirade. I would be the first one to consider anything she had to say it where even slightly substantive. By the way did you know from the window of my apartment I can see a Russian hooker?
So for those of you who didn’t know I am prepared to out my self as being pro Obama. I would also be the first to say I have my own agenda for the order of what he should deal with first as we all do, but the thing paramount in my mind is that surely we need to see what he is capable of before we write him off. Certain people who I named at the beginning pf this commentary wrote him off before he even began. Bush was given 8 yrs to prove himself and clearly the first four where spent rehearsing excuses.
Speaking of excuses Rush “Radio Show Republican” Limbaugh has been a clear front runner in the race for the title of American Asshole of the year. His racist reference to the president as “Barack the magic negro” was nothing short of an appeal to lowest of the low. He then added insult to injury when he played a song on his show by Paul Shanklin entitled Barack the magic negro, set to the tune of Puff the magic dragon.
When he was asked for a 400 word response on his hopes for the Obama presidency he responded by saying I only need 4. I hope he fails. He backtracked later by saying it was liberalism he wanted to fail and not the country. No matter how you dress it up if you want the President to fail, you clearly want America to fail as if one fails the other is affected by the failure. Patriotism? I think not. Limbaugh’s rants are clearly an exercise in increasing ratings and popularity. Both Limbaugh Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck have ulterior motives for their attempts to run down Obama, and I question whether they really have that much to do with politics.
Glen “Glug Glug” Beck is one scary M.F and is clearly evidence that they will give any asshole with an opinion a TV show, so there is hope for me yet. But seriously though accusing the President of being a racist with a deep seated hatred of white people was a real odd one. So does Beck think Obama hates himself because lets not forget his Mother was white?
Others where clearly concerned at Beck’s rants as Proctor and Gamble and Progressive Insurance withdrew their advertising with the show as a result. Fox said it had no negative financial effects on the corporation however once again its reputation was hurt, but they clearly don’t care. Good on the President for calling out Beck and Limbaugh by name for their vitriol.
So finally let’s talk about Dick. Calm down I mean Dick Cheney. I think before Cheney opens his fat mouth he really has to remember for a moment how he along with Bush gave the inheritance of the state of the union to Obama. The economy was bad and the previous administration where culpable. You cannot fix 8 years of bad management in one. Whilst I am pleasantly surprised by Bush’s continued silence during the Obama administration please Dick just retire with grace and follow Bush’s example.
I will be the first to criticize when there is a clear need to do so but before you say how bad the President is please give him a chance to do his job. Before I get 1000 e-mails reminding me about freedom of speech let me remind you this is me Xander Gibb exercising mine. I have no axe to grind, no show to promote as yet and no hidden agenda apart from my conscience and the sheer compulsion to respond to it. God bless the President & God bless America.
Peace and Luv, Xan x
