Obama Must Be Laughing

by Erik the Red on March 3, 2012

When I envsion President Obama watching the GOP debates, I think back to the late 80s at a few fights the boxer Mike Tyson had in a row, when he easily destroyed his opponent within a couple of minutes of the opening bell. I particularly re- member a match against Michael Spinks that followed months of Pay-per-View hyperbole. Tyson had also just married actress Robin Givens, so we had two dramatic plots developing at the same time. This fight, of course, was being branded as one of the best sports events EVER. Well, anyone who is old enough to recall what happened can probably look back and remember that you may have not yet sat down with your Domino’s pizza and soda pop before hearing something along the lines of…”the referee has stopped the fight!” It’s a good thing that they hadn’t started boxing during the National Anthem, because there would have been no proof in that night that Michael Spinks was still there by the time the song had ended. Not conscious, anyway.

Fast forward to the present day. Though I am not talking about sports, but politics, the joke is almost on the same level. The media have been working overtime to make the GOP race into a big deal. People are essentially running to the store for party goodies in anticipation of a really special event.  Hordes of folks are calling their local cable or satellite providers and piling up hun- dreds and thousands of dollars of Pay-per-View like charges on their plastic. Some may even go so far as to use this opportunity as an excuse to purchase that long-sought-after LaZboy recliner. However, what they seem to not realize, or admit, is that the challenger is over-matched and will likely be knocked off his feet and hurled onto his forehead and the bridge of his nose before having  a chance to say “phony birth certificate”.

Am I suggesting that registered Republicans, or anyone else who wants Nobama, stay at home and not vote?

No.

But I am saying that unless the GOP strategists can pull something out of the proverbial magicians hat, and right soon, it may very well be a short fight.

Anyone who has heard of ‘Romneycare’ and other shenanigans knows that Mitt, even if he, for the sake of argument, were to miraculously win the presidency, would just be more of Obama, but with a couple of “conservative tweaks” to please the audience. Anyone who has heard of NAFTA, the UN,     or a variety of other organizations that have proven to not only not care about our individual sovereignty, but are actually instrumental in destroying it, knows that Newt is a globalist and does not have our best interests in mind. Rick Santorum, though he has a decent amount of political experience and despite the criticisms he has received due to his acute case of diarrhea of the mouth, doesn’t come across as having the wherewithal to be president. A.k.a. a lightweight. A.k.a. a first round destruction by the champion.

That leaves Ron Paul.

Do I honestly believe that this man has a chance to win the presidency?

No.

But that isn’t the point. What we have here is a candidate who, over two months into 2012, is still standing and faring well basically everywhere he decides to make noise. Oh, the media will ignore him as if he is an ill-behaved, screaming kid in a grocery store. They will write articles or reports about the other three and not bring up his name even once. They will pretend that Ron Paul is not viable. But the fact of the matter is that we – those who have grown sickeningly disgusted with politics as usual and with the two-party system – have an option. We have a candidate in Ron Paul who is galvanizing us Americans who still believe that the Constitution means something and is relevant today.

I view Ron Paul more as a martyr for the cause of Constitutionalism. Even when he surely goes down to the mat in the boxing ring, he won’t be carried away to the locker room in the same manner as the others, like a hapless, discarded athlete nearing the end of his career. No, instead, many people will storm that ring and take his place, one by one. As they hurl punches at the sitting president (figuratively speaking) because of his assault on the Constitution and our personal freedoms, the onlookers from around the nation will be emboldened and recognize that their cause is not empty.

Oh sure, President Obama might be laughing now. He also might be laughing after the election. But if enough people with backbone will stand up and cry out, those who support the Constitution and its original intention will be laughing last.

Irony! Twce this week, Obama made focused attention to his race, though I woldn’t quite call it playing the race card.

No president – ever – has ‘controlled’ the economy. However, presidential policies CAN take advantage of positive economic cycles, and they can also stall positive cycles. Conversely, presidential policies can make negative economic cycles worse. Reagan and Clinton fit the first profile. Carter, Bush II, and Obama fit the second.

DO NOT TRUST A ONE OF THEM EVER. TRUST IN OUR LORD GOD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. The best counsel on all of Earth is the Bible. Tell all to read it daily.
The next time you vote do not vote for a promise vote a man that will tell the
world his LORD and Savior is JESUS CHRIST, and that he will serve him, family then Country. For with out GOD and Family we will have no Country!
And will tell all this on a Bible the truth of what was and is to come from are Lord GOD.
Read the Bible and tell the lost to do so to. The Bible the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
So help you GOD He will send his Son to Judge all.

May our Lord Jesus Christ and GOD the Father that is in Heaven,
Guide and Watch over us.

In this time of TRIBULATION, Strengthen your Faith, and encourage
all to Pray for their souls. The strong in the word of our Lord will Now
Help the World and be the disciples of our Lord’s Word. It is time to
gather the lost sheep while you can and there still is so little time.

The Governments of all Nations need to read.

God has no place in government. People like you are the reason so much conflict arises in the world. Go worship your useless GOD somewhere else and let the rest of the us be decent civilized human beings.

Come on people… Get serious plz!!!!!!!! I for one think he is doing his job as the president. I will continue to pray that he is able to continue. I am watching the movie Game Change as I type.

If you vote for Obama, that’s ignorant of you. Be smart. Vote for Romney.

Fed UP! August 16, 2012 at 2:43 pm

If you vote for Romney you are naive. To even think for one minute that he will care about you come pay day is just plain ludicrous. Paul Ryan stated his plan (Which Mitt liked) would help the economy by 2040. That’s 28 years! And you are all pissed that Obama didn’t do it in 3 (yes 3, he hasn’t been in office 4 yet). All I can say is WOW. If you think using ideology of the past is really going to help this country you are gravely mistaken. We need to think about the future. Invest in ways to help America grow, because we are the greatest country on Earth. But, the greatest country refusing to truly think about its people or THEIR future is just plain Dumb. You are only as strong as your weakest link. So why make the weak weaker? You should be making them STRONG so our Country will be strong again!!!

GO OBAMA!! I will be voting for Obama no matter which awful GOP candidate is chosen. They are all AWFUL. I agree with Erik the Red.. These Republicans will scratch away at the Constitution until it’s gone. This new breed of Republicans is quite different from Republicans of the past. I thought being Republican was all about LESS government. I don’t have any problem with being financially conservative, but these social conservative’s have got to go!! OBAMA 2012!!

DF,

NOT SO FAST, pal.

Obama is working overtime shellacking the Constitution too. I am not in Obama’s camp by any stretch of the imagination and he is one of the worst (if not THE worst) presidents of all time.

The point of my article is that none of the present GOP candidates has what it takes to dethrone him, not that I don’t want him dethroned.

Could you please give me a few examples as to how the President is attacking the Constitution? I don’t recall Obama doing anything like rairoading the Patriot Act through.

Erik the Red March 13, 2012 at 9:45 pm

M,

You bet.

Let’s start out by showing you a list of over 120 Executive Orders (aka unConstitutional):

http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/executive-orders/obama-subjects.html

Next, the Patriot Act that you mentioned – yes, the same one that our beloved president claimed to oppose – was signed by him to be continued:

I could show you a whole lot more, but you already have enough to choke on for a while.

Obama took our tax dollars and instead of helping the economy he used it to throw expensive parties in the white house. $25,000,000 to be exact and covered it up. Are you sure you wanna vote for him?

Dear Beverly,
Most of the people on this site try to contribute an intelligent comment or two, rather than simply insulting the last speaker. For crying out loud, say something useful.

Ben Dover, what are you talking about? There are pictures of Bush’s Donald Rumsfeld grinning with Saddam Hussein in Iraq! George Bush’s daddy George Bush the Elder worked with Osama bin Lade’s uncle at the Carlisle group, largely a DEFENSE contractor! Barack Obama didn’t have anything to do with hiring the “terrorist” you speak of. They just BOTH happened to have been professors at the University of Chicago. Breitbart’s done lying and smearing people and has gone on to his most likely just “rewards.” Wouldn’t want you to wind up the same way.

Oh yeah? The big difference between your cat and the likes of Romney and Gingrich is that your cat isn’t an Establishment or UN lackey who, as his predecessors, will continue to chip away the Constitution until, one day not far away, there will be nothing to protect us sovereign citizens from our government.

While there are good things about each of the GOP candidates…if you could mix the good points of the four, that would be a great candidate. Whomever the nominee is, pick a GREAT VP candidate one in particular stands out which would null the “race card” Obama will certainly play. I would vote for my cat for President before Obama, and I’m an Independent.

I think it’s cool that Alice Cooper is contributing to this discussion, and I know of a few cats that, if nominated, will be willing to run.
I cannot vote for Obama either, no matter who the GOP nominates. I think Obama is the embodiment of his party’s grandest ideals, and I mean that. The problem for me is that those ideals are contrary to what I believe is an intelligent way to govern. They are often proud to tout their education, and their empathy, and their nobility, but their actions are hypocritical to their creed.

Please, by all means, vote for your cat! I’m sure your cat could bring back the Dow back over double what it was (6500) before he took office. Your cat could probably save the auto industry from certain collapse. That cat could also raise the jobs rate to over 200,000 plus per month, How about lowering the payroll tax for all working U.S. citizens. How about a health insurance bill for all needy children. How about equal pay for equal work for women. In spite of the ingorance across the aisle, I’ve never witnessed Barack Obama playing the so called race card! The man is far too intelligent for that. Besides what race would he support! Oh, I’m so sorry, the Human Race of course! However, if i were silly enough to attempt to vote for your cat instead of President Obama, he would likely not qualify for the job because he would have to take a course in bigotry first.
