Tales of the Bizarre: Obama Bails on Press Conference

By Bobby Eberle

Since Barack Obama became president, we have witnessed what happens when someone is elected to a job but is clearly not ready for that job. I'm not simply talking about a man who crumbles when his teleprompter goes on the fritz. It's so much more than that. Obama has bashed his own country in an effort to gain favor with other nations. That didn't work. He rammed through left-wing policies without building (or at least trying to build) a consensus. November gave us an indication of how well that went over. And now, the journey of Barack Obama is complete... completely clueless, that is. On Friday, Obama not only brought in former President Bill Clinton to explain the new tax deal, but then he left his own press conference! I guess he felt he was turning things over to the one person who knew what was going on.

Here's the story... The current tax rates which apply to all Americans are set to go up at the end of the year. Despite having legislative control for two sessions, the Democrats waited until now, when they were forced to do something. As usual, they wanted to engage in class warfare and raise taxes on the so-called "rich" while keeping other levels the same. America was not going for it, and neither were the Republicans and some blue-dog Democrats.

Obama was forced to actually work with Republicans and come up with a deal that would maintain all current tax rates at least for a couple of years. Faced with backlash from the left and perhaps the growing realization that America is not a "community organizing" project, Obama once again gave us a reminder that he has no idea of how to be president. In one of the most surreal moments of the presidency, Obama called a press conference to explain the tax deal. But it wasn't just HIS press conference. He also invited Bill Clinton to help explain.

The idea that Obama has to have back-up from a former president on a current legislative issue is bizarre enough, but then things really got weird. In the middle of the press conference, Obama bailed out. He took off. That's right... Obama exited the building and left Clinton in control of the press conference. As you can imagine, Clinton didn't complain.

Obama opened the press conference by already hinting that he might leave early, because he had "one more Christmas party to attend." Are you serious? He calls a press conference about a national issue and is already telling reporters that he has to leave for a party. But, hey, that's cool, because we're in "good hands" with Bill Clinton at the helm. We are talking about the president of the United States, and he is looking less presidential and less in control with each passing day.

The reaction to the Obama press conference bailout has been one of stunned amazement. As FoxNews.com reports, Mark Knoller, a White House Correspondent for CBS Radio, said, ""I don't recall an episode like this before."

Knoller has covered every president since Gerald Ford and added, "Former presidents have visited the WH on prior occasions for ceremonies or meeting, but I don't recall any having the WH briefing room lectern turned over to them by the sitting president as happened today."

In an article in the Bradenton Times, editor Dennis Maley found the whole event surprising, because, "For starters, President Obama is continuously criticized (sometimes unfairly) for a complete lack of experience. Reagan never handed the keys to Nixon, nor Clinton to Carter, and even W. never brought Daddy in to close out the show."

Maley: What may have been less foreseen by President Obama's team, however, was the stark contrast in what the military calls command presence. Seeing President Clinton in front of the microphone, deftly parrying the tough questions of the White House Press Corps, I couldn't help but wish that the former Arkansas governor was doing more than consulting in these harrowing economical times.

Command presence. Some have it, and some don't. America is learning the hard way that when you elect an ideologue with no executive experience (actually, no experience whatsoever), you get someone who is in over his head. That is Barack Obama. It is becoming quite apparent that the presidency is too much for him to handle. What's he going to do during the 2012 presidential debates? Have Clinton sub for him?

    That was almost surreal. I’ve never seen a President leave a press conference like that…unbelievable. Instead of addressing an issue that affects the entire country, he left to go to Christmas party. Do not matters of a national concern trump the impatient tapping of MO’s foot? I never thought I’d see a bigger clown in the Oval Office than Clinton, but BO is proving me wrong.

    This does not surprise me at all. Honestly I would not be surprised to wake up one morning to find Obama turned over the US to Osama. I am dead serious about this. He is clueless and what makes matters worse when it comes right down to it, He is a coward. If N Korea was to nuke S. Korea what do you think Obama would do? Launch a Minuteman Missile? a Nuclear Tipped Cruise Missile? or call a press conference expressing his desire to end the conflict without further loss of life?
    He is DANGEROUS, but only to America and her Allies (not that we have any left now) As much as I hated clinton for lying to the face of the American people I would much prefer him to Obama but this is what happens when you let College Kids, welfare mommies, zero liability voters, and the Dead vote. We should ONLY allow property owners, their immediate families, and tax payers vote. And by taxpayers I mean those who do not get every penny back in April as those people are not taxpayers, they are just people who loaned money to the Government

    I hope the people that voted for this empty suited buffoon realize what a lying sleeze BO is.
    WHEN it’s proven he is not legally the president, his loving followers will want to amend the Constitution. Wonder what he’ll do if he decides to run in 2012 and is then required to prove his birth status?

    This is clear evidence that Barack Insane Obama is not competent to be President. We must start a campaign to remove him from office under the 25th Amendment. Joe Biden would be no better, since he has not shown any competence since he’s been in Washington, D.C., thus making the Office of President open to John Boehner in January 2011.

    Oh, I don’t know, Dadzrites. Might be fun to see a drunk in the oval office for a couple of days before the grownups took charge again.
    Many, including me, have warned that this immature boy was unfit for any office since he first ran for the Senate. He’s got no experience at anything, including his failure as a community organizer. He thought he’d waltz into the White House and all the doors would be opened to and for him and he’d have to exercise little or no effort to accomplish his socialist/Marxist goals. After all, the way appears to have been paved for him ever since he returned to the US to attend college. No one’s ever said ‘no’ to him.
    Now he’s being asked hard questions and he literally has no answers, nuanced or otherwise.
    BTW, the Christmas party had been moved up because he and the family have to pack to head off to HI for another long and well deserved (snicker) vacation. He’s reminiscent of Homer Simpson who always has his regular job waiting for him, regardless of the number of other endeavors and vacations he takes.

    Perhaps he should take a six week vacation in Afghanistan to see what it would be like if he HAD ever been in the Military. Take the whole Fam Damily. On TV everywhere over a bloody lip. “Anything to get into the Media Obama” is his moniker. We will soon be laughed at by the Canadians, who are coming to visit more now due to the fact that their dollar is the same or stronger than the U.S. one! Weeee….Hang on folks we’re headed straight down with this goober. Makes me wonder if he could even find the Whitehouse without a driver.

    Well, here’s the bright side. The public may learn that voting for image over substance just isn’t a good idea in the long run. His election was about the ‘historic moment’ of America shedding her racism and electing a black president. When you vote to make history, it often creates an unexpected history. This presidency will go down in the books as one of the most bizarre ever, I think.
    Does it surprise me that he bailed on his own presser? Not really. He seems very comfortable with turning things over to others when it gets too uncomfortable for him.
    The silver lining may be that it will be a long time before America elects a Dem to the oval office again – and maybe just be maybe (if we’re really lucky) the words hope and change will finally be retired from political campaigns. It’s been used forever, and it always astounded me that the Obama camp made it so effective. Must be that historical desire thing.
    I wonder what former president he’ll use for his next press conference.

    Why is this so hard to understand ?
    It’s as obviouis as all the Lies & Deceit Obama is Historically known for.
    Why wouldn’t Obama call in the very person that hoodwinked the American people & the Now-Ideology & Hopefully , soon to be ,Defunct, Jobless Democrat’s in Congress .
    Of course ,one needs to remember that X-Politicians seem to wield more Power over the masses than they did when in Office.
    Has everyone forgot that Clinton is the Epitomy of the “Spin the truth gig”.
    As in :It depends on what one’s definition of what “IS”,is.
    It’s a toss up as to whether this latest spin “IS” a matter of Honor among the Dishonored liars / Thieves, or A “Misery loves company” thing.
    Imo, There should never be a day when a Dis-Honored X-Potus needs to be Covering for a sitting POTUS of the exact same Ideologies & Character.
    Example: Hillary actually wields more Power than her Boss “O”. And I assure all here that “Her” power is in No way ,shape ,or fashion to be construed as Power “For” “We The People’s” benefit.
    Hillary’s statement saying she will never run for POTUS. Hillary obviously has found More Power as Secretary of State than the POTUS will ever gain as President. Just as Obama has proven that X-POTUS Clinton also still has more Power than Himself.
    How ironic that “We The People” finally learn Soros is running the show and Soros’ First in the chain of command is the Clintons & they are actually Obama’s Boss. I’d LMAO, if it was a laughing matter.

    Liberalfascist,
    While you have a good idea in limiting the vote to those who have earned the right, I believe that you have set the limits to create a major class war. I suggest the following:
    First place a limit on the duration of voter registration. I suggest statutory expiration 6 months before any national election. Then:
    A.) Proof of citizenship. Birth certificate, or Naturalization Papers.
    B.) Proof of residency to register to vote. Recent utility bill, etc.
    C.) Registration to vote in person. No mail in or registration with drivers’ license. Photo registration I.D. must be supplied in the same manner as a Drivers’ License I.D. is supplied and MUST be presented and verified before voting.
    D.) Proof of education equal to High School. Diploma or G.E.D.
    E.) Proof of fluency in the American English language and knowledge of the founding of the United States of America. Both of these requirements could be easily resolved with a short written history test on the founding of the country, and those involved.
    F.) Proof of not less than two years self support. Any tax funded support, other than Social Security, is automatic disqualification. Sorry collegians, but you only qualify to vote after you have repaid your government loans and grants.
    Note: Social (IN)Security could easily be replaced by a Personal Retirement Account without causing any problems to those already imprisoned on these phony retirement accounts. All that is required is an expansion of the amounts allowed in 401(k)s and IRAs with proper account security from creditors and a means test. Social Security should also be included in the disqualification list 30 years after passage of this voting law.

    Brighter side – our quota is done for now and our EOE policy for every occupation could benefit from lessons learned using competency and qualification as the only statute for job skills vs job compatability. Thank you Lord BO for showing us the truth and the light.

    Sorry, but this is going to far. Proof of GED or high school would deny voting rights to too many on both sides. Point C would deny voting rights to thousands in nursing and assisted living homes for whom mobility is a major issue, if not impossible.
    Also, what would be the funding source for all the in-person registration offices? They would easily constitute a whole new layer of bureaucracy at the local, state or federal level. And what of military who are overseas?

    marcwilton, are you stupid or what? When you graduate from high school you get a hard copy of your diploma. when you take your test for your GED and pass you get a hard copy of your GED. How is proving that a burden or denying you voting rights? The only exception for in person registration for those who can not get about on their own. As for who pays for in person registration, their is already people who enter you information, so why not have them see you face to face. Maybe we would finally get our moneys worth out of these government employees.

    Bobbie Eberle, why don’t you try to find some useful purpose in life? Limbaugh and Beck may be too far gone to reason with, but you seem intelligent enough. Writing this OBVIOUSLY slanted drivel to get the politically ignorant (and, many times, grammatically ignorant) poor souls to respond with even more ignorant and hateful pronouncements doesn’t seem to me to be very fulfilling in the long run. You cannot honestly believe that you are reporting in an unbiased and objective way. I guess that’s not your job. Can’t you see that this radical bi-partisanship that you promote is detrimental to moving the greater U.S. goals forward?
    The so-called rich? What would you call someone who will get $1 million or more, just in bonuses, at year’s end? I just read that there are at least 4,700 in the investment and banking industries who are looking forward to this type of bonus. Keeping their tax cut will allow them an extra $46,000.00 per million, enough to buy junior a nice Beemer to zip to high school, or a new Lexus for the wife. Let’s not worry about the deficit when it’s time to repay our donors for their support. It’s unbelievable how Republican leadership is getting away with this; NO-ONE seems to be objecting on that side of the aisle. Do you think that’s why they were swept into office in this last election?
    Talk about a lesson in futility; I think I just wasted an hour of my life.

For him to bail on an important discussion with the press is not surprising. If you want to know more about how he thinks and what he does, read “Conduct Unbecoming” by Robert “Buzz” Patterson, Lt. Col. USAF (Ret), the man who carried the nuclear codes for President Bill Clinton. It’s an eye opener.

    $5.oo will pay $10.oo that Obama sure as heck wasn’t going to a “Christmas Party” of the kind the holiday was designed for. Honoring “Christ” birthday.
    No way “O” can attend a “Christmas” party that Honors Jesus Christ. Obama obviously “backslid” without his prompter again, Or, He was going to a Holiday Happening ,Or, “He” is in deep poop with Allah now.
    I’ll say none of the above. Obama was Hiding in his office, pouting and plotting & talking to “his” master Soros , Again.

    It should be clear to the casual observer that Obama really doesn’t like this deal anyway, and was more or less forced to do something, and what is in this”deal” really is not what we should be doing anyway. So, yes, he acted with Clinton like the spoiled egocentric person he really is, and I am not surprised that he bailed on the discussion. It may be that he really doesn’t understand the implications of this proposed tax compromise anyway, and that is why he really cannot explain it in terms that even his party can buy into and support.
    I hope that the current bill does not get passed in either house of congress and the new congress that comes in in January takes up the issue and does it right. What we don’t need is the current bill with all of the “pork” that has been added so that they can get enough votes to pass it.
    Let’s start fresh in 2011 and do what is right about the tax rates, etc. Let’s find a way of creating a permanent set of tax rates instead of another “temporary” set of rates and have to go through this again in two more years.
    The first thing that would be clarified is who the “rich” are in this country, and it is not everyone who makes over $250K per year. This stupid class warfare argument has to be put to bed once and for all so that we can actually do something that makes sense. There are too many liberals and ignorant Americans that actually do not know how the tax system works for both individual income households, small or large businesses, and the myriad of tax shelters and investment incomes. Because of this “ignorance” on the part of many Americans, and the liberal strategy of taking advantage of this ignorance level, we just keep going around in circles on this subject.
    The truly rich in this country have wealth and income levels far above the $250K level, and can afford to pay more taxes each year, and many of the super rich agree on this matter. These are people like many of those in Congress (like Nancy Pelosi and others) and super rich like Warren Buffet, Bloomberg, Soros, Gates, etc. So, let’s work out a new set of tax rates that accomodate these people and, at the same time, take care of the small businesses who are in the gray zone between $250K and 1 to 2 million dollars of income.
    Just keep the current rates in place and add one more rate above the $250K at a breakpoint of say $2 million, and make that rate somewhere at the 50% level or above of income. That should accomodate everyone involved and stop all of this stupid bickering, and actually increase the amount of taxes the government will receive.
    My best solution is to totally reform the whole federal tax structure and go to a flat tax or some form of “fair tax” that is applied across the board to everyone living in this country and creating income for themselves. This puts “skin” in the game for everyone. Eliminate all tax shelters and deductions. Make it simple!
    Then we can move forward and fix the fiscal disaster we have within this country.

    ANYTHING STUPID OR CRIMINAL THAT THIS RACIST, MARXIST, COMMUNIST, ILLEGAL, RADICAL MUSLIM, IMPOSTER RULER OF AMERICA DOES IS NOT A SURPRISE ME. THIS RADICAL MUSLIM, CHICAGO THUG IS WAY OUT OF HIS LEAGUE. I SAW DURING THE CAMPAIGN THAT HE AND HIS MORONIC WIFE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT REAL MANNERS AND ETIQUETTE. THAT WAS THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR HIM, TOO. IT WAS AND IS EVIDENT THAT THEY ARE DEFINITELY FROM THE CONGREGATION AND WERE PROTOGES OF THE BLACK, RACIST, RANTING AND RAVING IDIOT WRIGHT.
    THE “IMPOSTER” HAS NEVER MADE DECISIONS BECAUSE HIS THUG CO-HORTS AND HIS MORONIC WIFE HAVE ALWAYS MADE THEM FOR HIM. IF HE IS A FOOT FROM ONE OF THEM OR HIS TELEPROMPTER, HE DOESN’T HAVE SENSE ENOUGH TO OPEN HIS MOUTH EXCEPT TO PUT HIS FOOT IN IT. HE DISGUSTS ME JUST TO SEE HIS FACE OR HEAR HIS VOICE. I SEE HIM AS THE “DUH” MORONIC “DUNCE” AT THE BIGGEST ELITE PARTY OF THE CENTURY TRYING TO FIT IN AND EVERYONE IGNORES HIM. HE’S THE WORLD’S BIGGEST IDIOT AND HE IS MAKING DECISIONS FOR US AND THIS COUNTRY. GOD HELP US ALL. THE THOUGHTS OF THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR HIM ALSO DISGUSTS ME AND JUST THINK WE HAVE THESE IDIOTS LIVING AMONG US. HE SHOULD TAKE ALL OF THEM AND GO BACK TO KENYA OR INDONESIA AND LIVE IN THEIR OWN “LALA LAND”. THEY COULD LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER WITH THEIR OWN SECT OF IDIOCY.
    I WASN’T CRAZY ABOUT BILL CLINTON BUT THE “IDIOT” SHOULD JUST TURN THE “REINS” OVER TO CLINTON. IT WOULD BE BETTER THAN LIVING WITH TERRORISTS RUNNING OUR COUNTRY, DAILY. OUST THIS IDIOT AND ALL OF HIS CRONIES, ASAP. OUST, OUST, OUST, ASAP.

    You’ve heard of being between a rock and a hard place?
    Well, Obama is clueless enough and gutless enough to be caught between (a) foolishly giving an experienced pol like Slick Willy the podium and being made to look totally superfluous and (b) having to leave early because he was making Michelle wait to go to a party (something I’m guessing she’s not too fond of doing — waiting, that is).
    He foolishly got himself into a situation in which Bloviating Bill is using up all the political oxygen in the room on the one hand and Michelle is impatiently tapping her foot and looking at her watch on the other.
    You don’t want to share the stage with cute little kid actors, dog acts or Bill Clinton, and you sure don’t want to make Big Momma Michelle wait for you. With her and her momma both living in the White House, I have little doubt who runs the Obama family, to include Barack.
    Like I said, clueless and gutless.

    OBAMA IS AN EMPTY SUIT. HE HAS NO TALENT OR EXPERIENCE TO BE PRESIDENT. HE IS AN AMATEUR PRETEND PRESIDENT WITH NO TALENTS WHATSOEVER. I WONDER IF WE HAVE A MAJOR NATIONAL CRISIS IF HE WILL INVITE BILL CLINTON TO SIMPLY TAKE OVER THE OVAL OFFICE ? OBAMA IS A FAKE, A FRAUD, AND A PHONY FROM WORD ONE. HE IS THE WORST MISTAKE AMERICAN HAS EVER MADE. HE IS THE DEVIL’S SPAWN !
    MAY THE GOD OBAMA DOES NOT BELIEVE IN SERIOUSLY HAVE MERCY ON AMERICA BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE FOR REAL AMERICANS TO RECAPTURE OUR NATIONAL PROSPERITY, PROMINENCE, AND PURPOSE !

    Nothing he does surprises me anymore! Its yet another example of disrespect, lack of understanding, lack of responsibility, lack of prioritizing. He is so clueless, and I’m sure he doesn’t listen to anyone who has enough sense to advise him either!
    He really is a disgrace to this great country! We deserve better, we deserve a Christian, American Leader who will respect, protect and lead us in the right way to go with God’s guidance! We must stand strong America, stand united as Christians to work together to make our Voices heard for the betterment of our America! http://www.PatrioticChristiansToday.com and join with others who are making a commitment to spread this important message, Patriotic Christians Still Trust GOD.

    As Dana Perino said on Fox News: Wierdest point is that Obama & former President Clinton — defending President George W. Bush’s Tax agenda in public in a Press Conference. I guess intelligence will rule over inexperience and philanderous actions any day.

    What really happened is as follows:
    1.) Obama was forced to pull a Clinton, meaning change directions at midterm. Clinton could do that easily with a smile on his face because he is a polished political creature. But Obama is a hard core ideologue, so the smile is forced and he is choking on it. The TV cameras spot things like that, so he had to get out fast.
    2.) What this means is that the Dems know they are in deep ****. The DNC put Obama on notice, he’s got to play the game or face a primary challenge this year, not next year .. which will make him look even worse.
    3.) Obama understands that he is now an empty suit hand puppet and his ego can’t handle it. That’s the real problem with ideologues. They believe their own BS until reality catches up with them. And, if he dosn’t do what he’s told, the DNC will wipe their Progressive Liberal behinds with their new hand puppet.
    4.) The real adults among the Democrat power elite are moving back into position and sent the boy on vacation while they salvage the juvenile mess he made of the White House.
    5.) From here on in, it’s all sound bites from BO. And they’re going to make him rehearse the fake smile a lot before they let him back in front of a camera again.
    6.) The new BO that returns from vacation camp is the change we can believe in.

    The luney Left will act up this year against Obama.
    The Clintonistas want this to happen. They will use the Left Wing whackos to make Obama seem almost ‘normal’.
    Make no mistake, this is a Clintonista power grab, and BO has no traction left on the Left to fight it off. He’s been played by the real pros.
    Caveat: BO is an ideologue. Sooner or later, despite the Clintons, he’s going to act out against his new keepers .. and that does not bode well for any of us.

    Wouldn’t you all agree that he has to enjoy the presidential parties as long as he has the chance? After all, we can’t allow him to stay ONE day longer than he has to….OH MY GOSH! Clearly this man is not Executive material. Whether you loved or hated Sarah Palin, can’t we agree that she would have been able to speak well without prompters and been able to hold her ground on the issues we face? This administration will go down as one of the worst in U.S. history. 2012 can’t come soon enough!

    This man is the sorriest excuse for a President this country has ever been so totally STUPID as to elect in this nation’s history. He is an avowed Marxist by his associations and appointments with animals like Bill Ayres and Berardine Dohrn, George Soros , Anita Dunn And Van Jones. He has been, in his less than two full years, the most utterly divisive and oppressive president and the most arrogant, narcissistic corrupt and totally unqualified and incompetent man to ever fraudulently run , be elected and occupy the Oval Office. He has, as far as I am concerned, invalidated his own Presidency by leaving a smooth but currently unelected Bill Clinton to take care of HIS responsibilities in order to tend to his Wookie Wife and attend a Christmas party? That is dereliction of duty in my book and goes along with violating his oath of office on many occasions and failing to enforce American laws and protect people and property along our Southrn borders and should be immediately impeached for cause. I’d wish you a Merry Christms Barack, but you being a Muslim Sympathizer and a potential traitor to us all, I’m sure I would be considered politically incorrect. Hell, That’s alright; I am an Ameerican citizen and have that right even if you would deny it to me if you could. So, Merry Christmas you slithering reptile and happy Impeachment in the New Year.

    I am a Black American and believe that it was unfortunate that the first African-American president was Barrack Obama. I have maintained from the beginning that he was not qualified and didn’t’ have the capacity to learn on the job (please note that his law school grades have kept secret, even though his liberal cohorts implied that President Bush stupid). Although he believes in this left-wing socialist philosophy ( probably because of various countries in which he was raised) and has done the bidding of his left wing mentors, he does not now know what to do since his mentors have lost power.

    It is obvious that Barack Insane Obama is not competent to handle the job which the U.S. Presidency requires of him.
    Here is some history, along with a litany of legitimate grievances against the Marxists, Globalists, and RINOs who are currently in power, and the radical Leftists who are destroying our Nation, our Liberty, and our way of life. The year was 1620 when the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock. During the 1770s, our Founding Fathers fought and won a revolution to banish tyranny from our shores, and successfully established our Constitutional Republic. But because of the Marxists, Globalists, and RINOs in power today, the rock has now landed on US. All the rhetoric about tolerance, brotherhood, and everybody sharing all the world, which the Marxists speak so beautifully about, is a LIE. Their evil ideology has caused the slaughter of more than 150 MILLION innocent men, women, and children by infidel Fascist, Nazi, and Communist regimes worldwide in less than 90 years’ time!
    When We The People remind the Marxist, Globalist, and RINO politicians that We The People send our elected officials to Washington D.C. to work for US, WHICH WE DO, they look upon us with hubris, hostility, and unfriendliness. They unconstitutionally tax, spend, and regulate us into deep recessions. During such difficult economic times, many decent, honest, hard-working Americans must work two low-paying jobs with few benefits, or two or three part-time jobs, with few or NO benefits, just to support their families. They work from before sun-up to well past sun down! From can’t see in the morning to can’t see at night! And they are the Americans who are able to find work at all! Then the Statists take a quarter or more of what these Americans earn in FICA, Medicare, and Federal Income taxes, and when they die, the Statists take even more in Estate Taxes! WHEN THEY DIE, they are taxed AGAIN! The Marxist and Globalist politicians HATE America, and do not even try to hide it ANY MORE!
    Those Marxist, Globalist, and RINO politicians do nothing to secure our borders or deport those who have entered our country illegally. Over the last 50 years, the radical Leftists have taken over the “Mainstream” News Media, Public Education, the entertainment industry, and the “Democratic” Party. For 50 years, they have dumbed down and indoctrinated our young people, expelled God from public life, infringed on our right to keep and bear arms, consistently appeased or sided with the enemies of freedom, and forced immoral and deviant lifestyles on We The People. They bully, slander, and try to silence those of us who are TEA Party activists and sympathizers, Constitutional Conservatives, and other American Patriots of ALL races by falsely accusing us of being “far right.” They try to criminalize us for rejecting THEIR criminal ideology! Left-wing activist Federal judges legislate from the bench instead of interpreting our laws like they are supposed to.
    Under Obama, Reid, and Pelosi, the destruction of our once-great nation has accelerated drastically. They force the suicidal filth known as political correctness on us. They appease and apologize to the Islamic terrorists who want to kill us, and those who sponsor them. At our airports, travellers in Muslim dress are given a free pass while the rest of us are treated like criminals and terrorists. They violate our First, Second, Fourth, Sixth, and Tenth Amendment Rights incessantly. They are so arrogant and incompetent that they refuse to understand why the American people are so angry! They accuse us of being ungrateful for all they are doing “for” us, despite the fact that they are doing it TO us! And now, we have a “President” who turns a press conference over to a former President and leaves because he cannot handle it! What a disgrace! We MUST FIRE all of the Leftist, Globalist, and RINO politicians in 2012, replace them with REAL American Patriots, and finish taking our country back! GOD BLESS AMERICA!
