Here are two direct quotes from somebody’s president in an interview on the NBC Nightly News.
“We’ve got a lot more work to do,” he said. “But the fact is because of the sturdiness and swiftness of the response, there’s a lot less oil hitting these shores and these beaches than anybody would have anticipated given the volume that was coming out of the BP oil well.” (Emphasis mine)
How out of touch with reality can he possibly get? Is there one person with half a brain out here who can believe even one word that comes out of his mouth? Oh yes, Robert Gibbs. No, come to think of it, Gibbs doesn’t have half a brain.
Here’s a piece from Mother Jones (!)
And this is a sort of devil’s advocate, apologetic article by Alex Wagner. See paragraph 3 and then see if you can find even one similar excuse for Bush’s response to Katrina. On second thought, don’t bother.
This next quote made me want to hurt someone. But I went out and pruned my roses instead, telling myself to consider the source:
“It’s not surprising that somebody like a Mr. Beck is able to stir up a certain portion of the country. That's been true throughout our history,” he said. But “what I’m focused on is making sure that the decisions we’re making now are going to be be not good for the nightly news, not good even necessarily for the next election, but are good for the next generation.” (Emphasis mine)
Barack Obama cares nothing for the United States of America. We the People have been ignored, ridiculed, snubbed, pushed aside, and lied to for as long as this uppity, arrogant puke has been wearing a suit. HE MUST BE STOPPED. Pray with me. Pray with your friends, your neighbors, your coworkers, your children, your parents. Pray for our republic and for the November election. Pray that the God who has been ignored, ridiculed, snubbed, pushed aside and lied to will hear “this portion of the country” and turn things around. I very much fear that if our cup of iniquity is indeed full, and God doesn’t hear—and why should He?—our children and grandchildren may grow up and die under an oppression so heinous, so absolute, that The United States Constitution will be just a footnote in the history books.
