Is it just me or is Barack Obama the quintessential example of "degree creep?" I mean the guy is certainly educationalized, right? So why is he so stupid? And that's the best you can say about him, because if he ain't stupid, he's flat-out crazy. We can't drive our SUVs, eat as much as we want, keep our thermostats at 72, and expect other countries to just say OK, he says? FUB! And have you noticed the halting condescension? Where did the idea come from that Obama is a great orator?
For the record, I don't drive an SUV and never have, and five years ago I said that driving one is un-American because I saw the harm it was doing, not to the environment (I couldn't care less about that), I was referring to the fact that they increase our dependence on oil and on those countries that hate us.
I also never keep my thermostat at 72. For example, it was 105 here yesterday, and I didn't turn the air conditioning on until 11 – in the evening. And the thermostat was set at 83. I say this not to brag or to show how green I am. With me it's all economics. I hate spending money on things that get used up or are inefficient, but I realize that I'm not normal, and I don't expect everyone to be like me or to follow my lead. It's simple really , the less I use, the less dependent I am on others. So if gas goes to ten pucks a gallon, I don't really care. Truth be told, I wish it would – the market should always set the price, and what's it going to take to drill in Alaska, twenty dollar gas?
But for Obama to suggest Americans can't do something because the rest of the world might not like it – that's moronic – to be kind. And Barry doesn't stop there. Now we learn he believes that Iran is a tiny country that represents no threat to us? Only idiots and crazies think that… and Obama does. In fact, Iran is a bigger threat than the Soviet Union ever was. I'm not going to detail why that is because any rational person can see that. But Obama doesn't.
Most recently, he's scaring seniors about Social Security. This is his message of hope? Change? It's nothing more than the Democrats bread and butter. Obama plans dramatic tax increases. Is that what Messiahs do? And lest you think I have a personal interest, forget it, Taxes, even a big jump in them, pose no problem for me personally. But they are rotten for people and prosperity.
If you think Obama represents positive change, you're a fool, and that's your problem. When you try to inflict your foolishness on America, it takes on a whole new dimension. The truth is, if there's a bigger threat to America than Iran, it's Barack Obama. How do clowns like this ever get an audience? Because of fools like you?
Then there's the wife, the church, the pastor, the terrorist, the elitism, the abortion endorsements… Barry Young called Obama's associations as the "Coalition of the Weird." Good but facile, and it minimizes the… uh… omonicity..
