And The Idiots Shall Reelect Him

I want to reflect for a moment on President Obama’s speech earlier this week on the economy, and of course Paul Ryan’s proposed budget. For some inexplicable reason, I continue to be stunned by the President’s cynicism and staggering propensity to be the antidote to truth.

But we must remember that this is indeed an election year, and our President doesn’t have a single thing in his record that he can actually run on. He is completely bankrupt of any ability to point to a single thing he has done, and ask us if we would like more of it – not a single thing!

But even though they have not a single positive item to which they can point as being a win for the American people, the Progressive Liberal mindset will once again implement the tried and true method of fear mongering through lies. Let’s face it, that’s the only thing they have left in their toolbox. They haven’t accomplished one single positive thing for the American people. Quite the contrary, we have a nation that has driven at full acceleration over a cliff, and no one in the present administration shows any sign of a willingness to pull the rip cord on the parachute.

To prove my point, let me cite Obama’s own words:

“Two million mothers and young children would be cut from a program that gives them access to healthy food. There would be 4500 fewer federal grants at the Department of Justice and the FBI to combat violent crime, financial crime, and help secure our borders. Hundreds of national parks would be forced to close for part or all of the year. We wouldn’t have the capacity to enforce the laws that protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, or the food that we eat. Our weather forecasts would become less accurate, because we wouldn’t be able to afford to launch new satellites.”

These recent remarks have actually created a crawl space beneath the President’s own personal low in bombastic prevarication. This is sophistry at its best – or worst, depending on your perspective. Let’s take a quick tour of the absolute “bottom of the barrel”.

Right from jump street, we must suppose that when the President makes remarks like these, he presupposes that there are people in this country who are willing to believe him. This is quite simply a blatant appeal to the absolute dumbest Americans out there. This is not only beneath the office of the presidency, but it should be considered a full-on  slap in the face, and the greatest of insults, to  Americans in general.

The primary catalyst that sparked these remarks, was the budget of Paul Ryan. And when you consider that Ryan’s budget doesn’t even balance until something like 2040, what is it then that has caused our President to find this sufficiently threatening, to make him go on the attack in such an unseemly way? Could it be that Ryan’s budget is about a trillion dollars  smaller than Obama’s?  Could it be that Paul Ryan’s budget REALLY doesn’t cut anything, it just takes a long time to balance. It certainly shuffles some things around, rearranging things, but it’s not draconian by any stretch!

Let’s just take all of the President’s remarks one by one and see how they stack up to reason:

“Two million mothers and young children will be cut from a program that gives them access to healthy food.”

How big an idiot must one be to believe that the Republicans are going to deliberately starve 2 million mothers and their children? Or, putting It another way, Republicans want two million mothers and their children to eat contaminated food. Really?!

“There would be 4500 fewer federal grants at the Department of Justice and the FBI to combat violent crime, financial crime, and help secure the border.”

Let me understand what President Obama expects us to believe; the Republicans want an increase in rape and bank robberies. They want a greater influx of illegal aliens. And they want the Wall Street banks to continue to screw the American people. The Republicans want more violent crime. And the Republicans do not want to secure the border. Seriously?!

“Hundreds of national parks would be forced to close for part or all of the year.”

So, the Republicans hate nature, and they want to do everything they can to keep you out of Yosemite or the Grand Canyon! C’mon! When you actually look at the people who are telling us “oh you can’t step there, you can’t cut trees there, you can’t do this because of that owl over there, and you can’t do that because of global warming….” Who are these people? Are they Republicans or are they Democrats.  Who really wants to control where you go, what you drive, what you eat, and what you do?

How could anyone with half a brain actually believe any of this drivel? But we must understand that the President’s reelection hinges squarely upon his ability to mobilize the ignorant, the shallow, the uninformed, the uneducated, the jealous, and the dumbest people out there! That is exactly who he’s appealing to with statements like those.

So the question remains, are there really enough of those monumentally stupid people out there to put him back in the White House in 2012? Are there really that many Americans wearing a double layer of intellectual condom’s that will allow the reelection of this man?

How different, and what a stark contrast this is from the campaign of 2008, that painted Obama as this larger-than-life messianic source of the hope and change that was promised to us all.
