When he was running for President, I dubbed him The Rottenest Man Who Ever Ran (I was being kind).

When he began his term, I called him The Most Dangerous Man Alive (I should have said "person"… or "animal".

Recently, I said that Barack Obama in The Most Dangerous Man Who Ever Lived (in the entire universe).

Since I'm prone to exaggerate for effect, some may have felt I was doing just that with each new title I conferred on The Entity.

But as you're seeing, the threat Obama poses is actually beyond description, and since America is the only force on Earth that maintains freedom and order, if we fall, the world immediately descends into what was formerly only seen in science fiction movies.

And with the latest news of Obama's attempt to dismantle America's nuclear deterrence, we will, if we aren't already, perilously close to abrogating our responsibility to humanity and abandoning the protection of our citizens.

All we have to do is look at Israel to see what would happen if that country were to do the sort of things America is doing – it would quickly be overrun and every last Jew would be killed.

Such is the benevolence of the Religion of Peace.

Whether America and the planet will face such an immediate threat is unclear, but there is no doubt that dropping our defenses will have long-term and dire consequences. In my opinion, this constitutes nothing less that a failure to uphold the Oath of Office for the Presidency.

The problem is that people move slow, and the Congress, at least prior to the health care undermining of America, moves even slower, so there's no doubt that impeachment proceedings would not begin until long after the damage became apparent (which is now for you and me, but Congressmen more incentives, if you get my drift).

We can blame Obama of course, but the fact is that Americans voted themselves what were getting. Maybe the majority appears not to like the result now, but America has no mechanism for swift reversal of voter "miscalculation," and even if Congress were to change hands in November, that won't change anything that's already been put in place.

In short, our security grows more tenuous by the day, and we can't even be confident that the ordinary citizen even yet sees the light, and by "ordinary," I mean the sort of people who appear on Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader.

Clearly the majority wasn't in 2008.

And even if our education system had improved since, which it hasn't, something tells me that very few people who voted for Obama have gone back to school…

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    Nothing here I can disagree with. I was in that minority who saw what Obama was when he was campaigning. My father always said: "People get the government they deserve." He's right. It's unfortunate that the intelligent, aware must suffer at the choices made by the Dumb Majority. ("dumb" = I'm feeling generous.)

    How could it be different? It was maybe somewhat better before our school system empowered morons and made them believe their opinions had value, but what would I be doing today if I hadn't made it my mission to set them straight?
    When I was in high school, my mother overheard a discussion we were having, the subject of which has long since been forgotten, but later she said, ""you're all so intelligent." I replied, "Intelligence is a curse." There are at least four problems:
    1) the competition among your peers is fierce.
    2) you're often helpless to implement what you know will work
    3) you have to take orders from jackasses
    4) you're still often wrong – and you realize it.
    What is amusing to me is when I encounter people who think they're intelligent, especially those who have joined Mensa. I'm sure they exist, but I have never met a Mensa member who wasn't an idiot.
    The other day, Glenn Beck said categorically that Obama was very intelligent because "he went to Harvard." So Beck's intelligence took a hit in my eyes. He confused intelligence with "knowing stuff" or how to manipulate a system. I had a friend who was an absolute genius when it came to cars and electronics. Yet he got miserable grades in school and never went to college, but he did become a helicoipter pilot in the military. So was he intelligent? Was he less intelligent than Obama? I doubt it.
    Regarding what Obama is, I was thinking that today's Democrats are the very people that the House Committee on Un-American Activities and the McCarthy hearings were trying to flush out. It reminds me of the movie Cabaret. In the beginning, the camera pans the mirror wall and sees a normal audience. At the end, the camera again pans the wall and there's a person wearing a Nazi armband at every other table or so.

    Oh, I love those scenes in "Cabaret" (which I've seen maybe half a dozen times). Speaking of movies and morons, have you seen "Idiocracy"? It is *excellent* and truly one that can be appreciated and recognized for its truth by the intelligent. And BTW, I wholly agree that intelligence is a curse. Even on Vox, there is little of it. As for intelligence, what it is and is not, is such a broad topic that I ain't gonna go there. Would I call Obama intelligent? I would not. I'd call him highly skilled (noticeably above average) in certain areas and focused exclusively in the narrow range of his self-interests (which is different from being a focused person in general) but not of native intelligence. He is robotic and unoriginal and not particularly imaginative either. As for Mensans, yes, there are certainly those who aren't bright but I've also known some who are. Shame on Beck for equating a Harvard education with intelligence! Nothing could be further from the truth! Plenty at Ivy League schools and other "high academia" institutions are utter dolts. Dolts with money. A nasty combination,.

    It was hilarious listening to him try to answer the question about who his favorite White Sox player was. It was another "Special Olympics" moment If he wasn't a good liberal, they'd have been screaming about how he was making fun of stutterers.
    Which reminds me, I start yelling at the TV every time someone on the right begins by saying that what he's about to say isn't "hate speech"…
    I saw Idiocracy a short time back. I felt it was pretty well done but that most people wouldn't see it as current reality so it won't get the standing that 1984 has.

  5. Waterbaby says:

    Yeah, I wonder how many noticed how he totally evaded the question and was utterly unable to name a single White Soxer … or gave thought to what that says about Darth Obama. Uh-huh, leading with "this isn't hate speech" is poor form and much more. To deliver a powerful message, lead with the power statement, not a negative that gives a nod to the other side. Like I said, only the intelligent and aware will get Idiocracy and see its relevancy now ….

  6. TedWest says:

    I hate to say this, but it's a small gesture to demonstrate my objectivity… the questioner asked that he name his favorite Sox when he was a kid. So there are several mitigating factors: that he wasn't in Chicago as a kid, and that even if he were, the question was just obtuse enough as to give him pause. If you asked me who my favorite Orioles were as a kid, I'd be hard pressed to name them – and not just because I lived in Cleveland!

  7. Waterbaby says:

    I get your point. To whether one can name one's favorite players from childhood, it's individual. I know people (up there in the years too) who can rattle off names from decades past as if the players competed yesterday. And they're names outside their own hometowns too! So …. individual.
