Dumb Obama Bashers Need To Wake Up And Support President Barack Obama

Take a look at this excerpt from an article I recently read:
There is a number buried in today’s government labor report that deserves closer examination: 35,000. That’s the net number of private sector jobs created during the Obama administration to date. That’s right, it’s a positive number. After the worst economic disaster to befall the United States in 80 years, that’s a number that maybe we should be applauding. ..... But the real eye-opener comes when we compare Obama’s numbers to George W. Bush’s. In Bush’s first term, the economy shed 913,000 private sector jobs! 913,000!
Now, go read the entire article:
Leonard, Andrew, Bush vs. Obama: Jobs, During George W.'s first term, big government boosted employment. For Obama, it's the opposite,, May 4, 2012.

You know, I cannot help but wonder, WHY ARE OBAMA'S CRITICS SO DUMB?, especially after having read
"When Obama took office, the United States was losing around 750,000 jobs a month. The last quarter of 2008 saw an annualized drop in growth approaching 9 percent. This was the most serious downturn since the 1930s, there was a real chance of a systemic collapse of the entire global financial system, and unemployment and debt—lagging indicators—were about to soar even further. No fair person can blame Obama for the wreckage of the next 12 months, as the financial crisis cut a swath through employment. Economies take time to shift course."
That is an excerpt from a Newsweek article written by Andrew Sullivan. Here go read more of the article over at The Daily Beast:
In Newsweek Magazine, Andrew Sullivan: How Obama's Long Game Will Outsmart His Critics, January 16, 2012, The right calls him a socialist, the left says he sucks up to Wall Street, and independents think he's a wimp. Andrew Sullivan on how the president may just end up outsmarting them all.

There are over 200 reasons to support the re-election of President Barack Obama as listed in the Forbes magazine article of February 24, 2012 written by Chris Weigl. Go on over to read:
What Do Americans Think Of Obama's Performance As A President?

Obama's critics are lacking a good case from an economy perspective, but we all know that the President mostly rides and doesn't steer the economic roller coaster. They get far too much credit when it improves and far too much blame when if declines.

I'd like to spend some time and put together a rweally intelligent response to this, but as a "dumb Obama basher, " I'll just say in my best George Bush/Carvey voice, "Support Obama? Can't do it. Wouldn't be prudent."

Roland Hansen said...

Chili Dog, you point out the obvious to me regarding the President's true role in the economy. Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans are totally unaware and ill-informed about the limited authority of any President when it comes to these matters.

CWMartin, in no way would I ever lump you in with the category of Dumb Obama Bashers. There are people out there that I would label dumb; you are definitely not one of them! I understand your perspective, I just do no not concur with it.

Okay, a night to think on it, reasons I won't support Obama.
1. Obama care. Anything good in this has been mitigated by a) having it forced down our throats ("pass it now, find out what's in it later") by two of the biggest panderers in US history, Nancy (Thank God for the LGBT) Pelosi and Harry (Look for the union label-it's sewn into my wallet) Reid; and b) because it is a big sunscreen for Obama's attack on the rights of 1) states, 2)individuals, 3)the unborn, and 4)the people of faith.
2. His bullying attitude at forcing things through, whether it comes as forcing things around the constitution or talking out both sides of his mouth to the Catholic Church.
3. The groups that support him- and he reciprocates to- seek to take away my constitutional rights through grand stands and subtle erosion. Groups like the unspoken LGBT/Atheist alliance, illegal immigrants, parasitical unions, and dishonest voter-registrars such as ACORN.
4. His unrealistic anti-Israel stance. "Go back to 1948 borders," he is a geopolitical idiot!
5. His policies that alledge to protect the environment, but only really smother job growth and less expensive fuels. Damn it, I'd like to visit the world- or at least the area agian- and I can't do that on $4 a gallon gas!

Now I realize that he is not totally but certainly severally at fault for most of these. I also realize that certain groups (Catholic and Jewish voters in particular) have slit their own throats in other of my points. Does that mean I lie down or roll over? Hell no!

I dont bash Obama just because he's black, he's a democrat, he's a liberal, or his wife has abnormally long arms and a crappy opinion of the country she lives in. I bash him because I feel he is a disaster on a par with Jimmy Carter. I bash him because he tells lies and half truths to make his points (which of course differentiates him from 0 politicians), and doesn't seem to have any higher moral base than what is good for his own prospects. And I believe that deep down, he has no real belief in America- what it can do, and waht it can be. Like his wife, I think he approaches this nation with a gigantic chip on his shoulder. And I bash him because, for all the places I've seen liberalism tried, I've never heard of it working.

Thanks for not lumping me, I knew you weren't. I was just being sarcastic to buy time to think this out.
