Awash in a sea of stupidity

Get Smart Obama style

Forgive me for not feeling optimistic, but I’ve never been one to embrace bumper sticker slogans as theology and cannot for the life of me see the allure of Barack Obama.  As far as I can tell after extended research, Obama has never provided a single good or service to society in exchange for a paycheck.  When his Harvard Law classmates hit the pavement in pursuit of legal careers, Obama instead headed to the seedy streets of Chicago.  We’re told he did this because of a newfound devotion to public service, but don’t most civic-minded people also have day jobs?  The kind of jobs where they provide goods and services?  And where, exactly, does one apply to care in exchange for money?

 Obama’s past employers have not been charities, despite rumors to the contrary.  They are, in fact, political organizations rooted in the socialist policies proffered by the likes of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro.  ACORN may claim political indifference, but its actions on behalf of democrat politicians leave little room for plausible deniability.  For those of you who don’t know what plausible deniabilitymeans, it’s a legal term.  Obama would understand it.  Call me a cynic, but I’m 100% certain Mr. Obama arrived in Chicago not with goodness in his heart, but rather with a plan to exploit the plights of ignorant people in his own pursuit of power.  While I don’t believe Obama is as brilliant as his fans claim, I do not think he is stupid.  He is a student of human behavior and knows how to recognize an exploitable weakness.  The south side of Chicago reeks of weakness.  Ask the people there what type of government we have in the United States and you’ll learn we’re a democracy.  That’s what they were taught in government schools, courtesy of well-meaning teachers who don’t know any better, themselves.  Ignorance begat ignorance.  There’s no better environment in which to pass off Marxist philosophies as those of the founding fathers, so Obama made Chicago his launch pad. 

I believe that Obama is neither a Muslim nor a Christian.  But membership in a congregation is a prerequisite for a career in national politics, so Obama dutifully attended Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church just often enough to be seen, but not so often that he couldn’t deny knowing his pastor is a radical racist.  Again, it’s about plausible deniability.  That seems to be the single facet of the legal system Obama embraced during his Harvard years.

What I find objectionable about Obama’s socialist leanings pales when I consider his personal failings.  Born to a white mother and abandoned by his African father when he was a toddler, he was raised largely by loving maternal grandparents who made sure their only grandson received the fine education he would use to launch his political career.  By all accounts, including Obama’s, they were decent people.  Obama’s continued defense of Rev. Wright, whose now-famous racist diatribes attack the very foundation of Obama’s life, mystifies me.  Even in allowing himself to be classified as “a black man” rather than a multi-racial one, Obama rejects half of his own heritage.  That he would sit in a pew and listen to a so-called man of God denigrate and condemn anyone on the basis of race — much less the people who loved him unconditionally — can only lead me to conclude Obama is either ashamed of his whiter half or a shameless opportunist.  I find neither inspiring.

Don’t assume a McCain presidency would give me a warm glow, since nothing could be further from the truth.  John McCain reminds me of a classic nerd who swaggers a bit when casually addressed as stud, except in McCain’s case, he started believing the maverick nonsense.  Unless maverick describes someone whose decision-making capacity mirrors that of a schizophrenic, McCain is no maverick.  But unlike Obama, McCain is ruled by his desire to be loved while appearing statesmanlike.  His principles are liquid, taking the shape of whatever container surrounds them.

President Obama could have dissenters collected and contained in FEMA concentration camps and the media would call his decision tough, but judicious.  If he replaced our criminal code with that of the UN, newscasters would describe it as an overdue reform that could only have been undertaken by a visionary.  And if he inadvertently burned down the White House with a carelessly discarded cigarette, Barbara Walters (who appeared on the verge of sexually servicing Obama during her most recent interview) would say Obama had done us a favor, since President Bush had left the structure in such poor condition, it was barely habitable for a family of the Obamas’ standing.  I say these things as a former journalist who wonders what has become of her profession.  The reporters I knew loathed our peers who abandoned journalism for the more lucrative pastures of public relations.  I can’t imagine what made them jump the fence without the commensurate pay increase.  Perhaps Obama’s nimbus is impenetrable and they’re trapped in its shadow.

Anyway, I’m frustrated, angry, and in all likelihood doomed.  We all are, given what’s become of the republic.  Sadly, the masses are so hypnotized by the shiny penny Obama that they won’t even realize their losses for years, if then.  Oh, to be young and stupid again.
