Barack Obama

What the Fuck Has Obama Done?

|

If you have earnest Obama fans among your friends in a social network or perhaps even real life, you may well have been sent a link to the hiply profane "What the Fuck Has Obama Done So Far?" site. It is designed to instruct the prog-leaning who might be slightly disappointed in our world leader's accomplishments thus far in how and why they need to man up and join the parade of Democratic Party triumphalism.

To the extent that it has worked to rally the soft-left troops, the site, and the spirit behind it, is sorely disappointing, consisting almost entirely of "he's spending nonexistent money on helping people we think you might be sympathetic to" or "he's restricting the actions of people we think you might be unsympathetic to", or non accomplishments such as "signing executive order" to close Guantanamo, when he has done little to actually ensure it would happen, or to end the policies that led to its existence in the first place.

All the issues where libertarians like to dream they can win left-progressives' cooperation on–anything having to do with government leaving us alone or not acting like a villain–are ignored as if unimportant.

Luckily, some other cheeky progressives made a site mirroring its look in every way, "What In The Fuck Has Obama Done So Far?", highlighting such Obama administration accomplishments as "Won the right to invoke "state secrets" protecting the Bush administration from criminal prosecution," "Failed to disclose visits by industry executives while crafting health care reform legislation," "Authorized the assassination of US citizens abroad, an unprecedented declaration of executive power," "Censored reporters covering military tribunals at Guantanamo," "Fought for government immunity in prosecutions for domestic spying," "Awarded $250 million in government contracts to Blackwater," "Dramatically increased the use of drone bombers in Pakistan, resulting in hundreds of civilian casualties," "Won the right to keep identities of prisoners at Bagram "black site" a secret," "Cracked down on government whistleblowers more than any President in history," "Used cluster bombs in Yemen, resulting in the deaths of 14 militants, and 35 women and children,"  "Sent 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan," "Passed a massive bailout of Wall Street, at the taxpayers' expense," and "Pushed for a 5 year prison term for Charles Lynch, the operator of a medical marijuana dispensary, legal under California law." Each entry comes with accompanying link to a citation.

Send the latter "What In The Fuck Has Obama Done So Far?" link along to a progressive you love today!

The founders of the actually pro-Obama site showed up on MSNBC last night, humbly talking up their signal service to the Great Leader, using the more TV-friendly "What The Heck Has Obama Done?" name. Sellouts! My esteemed colleague Michael Moynihan tells me they got the booking at the behest of Michael Moore. It is strange to type the words "Michael Moore has let me down," and yet, there it is.

  1. Even better, the anti-Obama site allowed me to hop right back to Reason.com using the back button, where as the pro-Obama site just sat there unmoved while spending my tax money.

  2. A FB friend of mine posted the original link a few days ago. I thought about replying, but I could easily have typed all day refuting all that BS. Nice to see someone spent the time doing just that.

    1. A libertarian version is http://www.whatthehellhasobamadonesofar.com

      (it’s got one button that references Galt’s Gulch and a couple links to Reason.com)

  3. Read the the second one, and though it is decidedly lefty, it did make a lot of good points. As opposed to 0 good points on the first one.

  4. Thanks for posting this. It’s been popping up on my FB news feed for at least a week now, and the question that pops into my head each time is, “Why did I ever do to deserve a friend like this?”

    1. Why = What

      Durr….

      1. I was curious how all of a sudden so many people started posting links to the site. It was like they all got a signal from Dear Leader.

  5. As asked on Morning Joe:

    Which is the greater immorality, waterboarding KSM to get actionable intellegence, of using drones to blow-up a house, killing 12 civilians (e.g., an 8-year-old girl) in order to kill one bad guy, who now dead, has nothing to say?

    1. This was in relation to the second site’s blub about Obama using drones in Pakistan.

      1. We used to have a club like that, but I don’t recall any explosions other than that time Hobbie Warmnobble had too many chickpeas and wandered near Fusty Cuttlepence as he was lighting his pipe…

  6. waterboarding KSM to get actionable intellegence, OR,/b> using drones

    1. damn html text.

      1. Loserdopian.

  7. Let’s see, he has helped lead his party to its worst electoral defeat in over 70 years, initiated a trade and currency war, severely devalued the dollar, put the country on the fast track to bankruptcy and ruin, and done what should have been the impossible task of making the execrable George W. Bush seem good by comparison.

    These are certainly accomplishments, but I’m not sure they’re ones worth getting too excited over.

  8. I guess “played you libtard weenies harder than a rented piano” isn’t a nuanced enough answer for them.

  9. He has kept the dream of Imperial USA alive by maintaining the so-called War on “Terror”. That’s an acomplishment . . .

    1. Don’t forget, he bailed out Wall Street!

      1. Funny that. Liberals tell us how Obama saved us from another depression by saving the banking system. But, TARP was thought up and started by the Bush administration. Do they plan to give the evil Bush some of that credit?

        1. Libertarians pretend to be socially liberal but only for those who can pay for their rights.

          1. Because nothing says social liberal and rights like taxing working people to save Wall Street billionaires.

          2. And the mighty wit and great wisdom of Balloonjuice was brought to the pages of Hit & Run.

            1. Sug, only you are brave enough to go to a place like “wymynspace.org” (domain for Melissa’s email) and report back on the horrors of that gyneceum.

              1. “gynaeceum”

              2. Doesn’t exist, sadly. I guess Melissa is just a spoofer.

                But http://www.womensspace.org/ does exist…

                Under the banner “Porn is Rape”:

                We live in a world of socially constructed categories. Each person is marked according to her or his sex, ethnicity, class, appearance, sexual preference, and so on. This is not news. Nor is it a revelation that these differences are not created equal, but are often demarcations for social hierarchy, where each class of people will be treated according to how the dominant group of the society perceives each category.

                But no matter how different each society values these social categories, gender, race and class oppressions exist cross-culturally because of the universal existence of male-dominance. As such, sexism and racism are forms of social control by male-dominance; and pornography, which incorporates racial hatred and misogyny, is a major tool of that social control.

                One of the ways in which pornography perpetrates and reinforces sexism and racism is the normalisation of terror and hate. If we look at the parallel between sexist and racist pornography with sexist and racist jokes, the process becomes clear. In both cases, where previously discriminations based on sex and race are unacceptable in any circumstances, they are “redeemed” through pornography/jokes, because the former is seen as only providing sexual gratification, and the latter is just for a laugh.

                1. @SugarFree inre:Porn is Rape

                  The conservative lady on Stossel’s show a couple of weeks ago made a similar argument regarding prostitution. Basically that legalization would legitimatize violence against women, and also that any sex/cash transaction was in fact a violent act against a woman.

                  Now that team red/blue has become one* we are truly fucked.

                  *see entitlement spending, WOD, WOT, civil liberties, etc, etc…

                  1. “any sex/cash transaction was in fact a violent act against a woman.”

                    But they pay me.

              3. It’s fake, I have already looked.

                I think we’ve been had, now who’s the cylon?

                1. now who’s the cylon?

                  Quick! Someone fuck Warty to see if his spine glows red!

                  (Not “it.”)

            2. You knew it was inevitable. At least beating on them mercilessly will be amusing.

          3. Great Keynes’ Ghost! She’s right!

            And to think of all the years I’ve wasted being so, so wrong. :::runs sobbing from the room–slams door:::

          4. Libertarians pretend to be socially liberal but only for those who can pay for their rights.

            Rights which are defined as limits to government power, ie, freedom of speech, the right to be free from unreasonable searches don’t require me or my neighbor to “pay” for them, beyond maintaining a court system to make sure those rights aren’t trampled.

            Positive rights, such as the right to have access to modern healthcare require either me or my neighbor to shell out real dollars.

            But you know where that argument goes.

            1. Positive rights, such as the right to have access to modern healthcare require either me or my neighbor to shell out real dollars.

              Or the progressive’s favorite right of all, the right to strip any semblance of modernity from the health care market through the democratic process, just like they did in Cuba and East Germany*, Canada, and England.

              *The former two, democratic of course, only in the progressive mindset.

            2. Everything the government does is pretty much a positive right, minarchist functions included. You might have a negative right to life and property, but once you demand that society pay someone to protect them as a full-time job, we’re talking about positive rights.

              1. I agree, but even as an anarchist, I think that with in the sphere of positive rights there is a distinction that can be made between procedural rights and other positive rights.

                Not that it means anything, but I think there is a discernible difference.

  10. I clicked on the link and I was met by this:

    Promoted social responsibility through creation of serve.gov, a national database of volunteer opportunities

    I closed my browser.

  11. “All the issues where libertarians like to dream they can win left-progressives’ cooperation on–anything having to do with government leaving us alone or not acting like a villain–are ignored as if unimportant.”

    Don’t worry libertarians. Just keep trying. Lefties will call you back some day. They know you really love them.

    1. No. No we don’t.

      We don’t like conservatives either, but that shouldn’t be mistaken for liking liberals.

  12. He did manage to do for American health care what Joe Stalin did for Soviet agriculture.

    1. At least Stalin built the White Sea Canal.

      1. White?? Ain’t gonna happen, John.

        1. You obviously didn’t see Obama dancing in India.

  13. Luckily, some other cheeky progressives made a site mirroring its look in every way, “What In The Fuck Has Obama Done So Far?”, highlighting such Obama administration accomplishments as [numerous examples of odious administration actions].

    Add “let the CIA officers who destroyed the interrogation/torture videos off the hook” to that list.

    Odin knows Obama wouldn’t want to set the precedent of executive branch officials being legally accountable for obstructing justice. That might come back to haunt him.

    1. ^^^HTML screwup^^^

      I blame Warren.

      1. I blame Bush

        1. He backed the code up to the ditch.

        2. I blame global warming.

          1. I blame blame.

            1. I blame Citizens United. If J sub D couldn’t spend that extra money on his political commentary, there wouldn’t be any messed up HTML on this page.

              1. You may be right, mis-spelled stranger.

  14. Saw this site trumpeted on slog.thestranger.com and chuckled over how pathetic all the “accomplishments” truly are. Most of them are either fluff or inconsequential govt waste. Wheeee!
    Sad to see the left not only blindly cheering for their team but boldly providing evidence showing their naivet?.

    Being a Libertarian just means you know that both sides do it once their in control.

  15. “”Send the latter “What In The Fuck Has Obama Done So Far?” link along to a progressive you love today!””

    Why not a conservative? It’s a list they should love.

    1. I think the point is that it’s highlighting positions progressives are supposed to care about. Conservatives already hate Obama (and many of the policies highlighted in the website should actually appeal to conservatives).

      1. If my “appeal to conservatives”, you mean “appeal to neo-cons”, then yes. I doubt your typical hardcore Burke fan gets wood about predator drones or military aid spending for Israel.

      2. “””I think the point is that it’s highlighting positions progressives are supposed to care about. “”

        Oh sure. I’m just having a little fun with it.

        I love pointing out that Obama is more like Conseratives than liberals on many issues. While the liberal may hate him for it, the conseratives will never really praise him for it. It’s partisan warfare of course. Never let the other team look good, even when it’s your team’s idea.

  16. You morons! Chad and Tony will be along soon to list Obama’s true accomplishments. Number one will be allowing gays and lesbians to openly serve in the armed forces. Oh, wait…

  17. Even if Obama hadn’t accomplished anything good in the past two years, progressives should be happy. It would have been even worse if McCain had been elected imagine how many bad things would have been accomplished.

    1. This seems like Troll Hobie….C-

      1. I can’t imagine Cindy trying to act like Cleopatra.

    2. Just repeat after me: President Sarah Palin.

      On the other hand, it’s unclear if President Sarah Palin would have been more likely to occur if McCain had been elected.

      1. Suppose McCain had won and then dropped over dead William Henry Harrison style shortly after his inauguration. What could Palin have possibly done that would have been as bad or worse than Obamacare, the stimulus and what Bernarke and Obama are doing to the dollar?

        1. I was just playing with a troll by offering a bullet-proof argument for their side.

          1. Sorry didn’t catch the sarcasm. But it in all seriousness, it is pretty hard to imagine anyone doing a worse job as President than Obama.

            1. I disagree. A few candidates from both parties would probably have had us at war with Iran by now.

              And while we libertarians like to rend our garments while expressing our disdain for the health care bill… It’s lousy, but there were much worse plans on the table two years ago.

              1. “A few candidates from both parties would probably have had us at war with Iran by now.”

                That is a nice libraltarian fantasy that Libertarian Obama voters like to hold onto. But the fact is Bush was a lame duck with 35% approval ratings on his way out and didn’t bomb Iran even though he could have and paid no political price for doing so.

                That puts to rest the idea that Republicans are more likely to bomb Iran than anyone else. And also, if you people would pay some fucking attention instead living in partisan fantasy land, you would realize that Obama is just as big of a Wilsonian as Bush. There is going to come a time where we either go to war with Iran or give up on there being any sort of world order or international law. And there is no question which side of that issue Obama would fall.

                1. Those two paragraphs would be more persuasive if you didn’t put them so close together.

                  “As a Republican I resent being told that I’m more likely to want to bomb Iran! Also, we’re totally going to need to bomb Iran!”

              2. And that may actually be part of the problem. A war with Iran would almost certainly have pressed the military and the budget to the breaking point, thus forcing America to engage in a true hard reassessment of our foreign policy goals. And in the same way a really bad health care plan might have so angered the public that national health care would have been tarred for the next generation or so. Instead we have an expanding nanny state and creeping socialism occurring while the American public moans but does nothing.

            2. I said the same thing during Bush’s administration. And Clinton’s. So… I can’t actually imagine what worse will look like, but I can confidently predict that Obama successor will make us long for the days where all we had to worry about was the government assassinating American citizens overseas and nationalizing large segments of the economy. Presumably it will involve nuclear war.

            3. Well, John, there are plenty of “worse job” scenarios – President Kucinich, President Howard Dean, President Cynthia McKinney…

              But, yeah, Obama sucks.

        2. That’s good question to ask of McCain himself. He lost my vote when he got his panties twisted up over TARP, but it was a building animosity with the guy. Some of his signature issues I’m glad we’ve avoided:

          1. “We’re all Georgians now.” McCain would probably have the Fifth Fleet swinging around anchors in a Georgian port somewhere antagonizing the Russians and….

          2. Iran! Conveniently also along the Black Sea. We’d have a war with Iran by now, at least since the Toweled Ones put the fix in on their own elections. From the Himalayas int the east to the Arabian voids of the west, the USA would be responsible for the whole thing. “Arizonastan” McCain would probably name it. Count Palin in on that one too if she were Prez. Obama has no balls, sometimes that’s good thing.

          3. National Service dreaming… McCain had hokey ideas about National Greatness through essentially a draft for Civil Service. Never give politicians bodies to play with via levy, whether in war or peace.

          4. McCain would also have engaged in all kinds of relatively little things that piss me off personally. He’d try to ban UFC for one. Another would be some terribly thought out and corrupting Holy War on drugs in sports.

          So, even in retrospect two years into the White House being Uncle Obama’s Cabin, I don’t know if McCain would be better.

          Palin? It would have devolved into some twisted Weekend at Bernie’s scenario with Palin’s husk being reduced to Cheney-controlled flesh-puppet shilling Halliburton contracts. Cheney control of course originating from Secure Undisclosed Location.

          1. Damn it, Iran’s up on the Caspian…well quick flight from Pontus…anyways.

            1. More than made up for by the fact that you reminded us of the bullet we dodged, which strangely eases the pain of this sucking chest wound we’re currently enduring.

              1. Keep telling yourself that. Foreign policy wouldn’t be one bit different today had either side one the election. There would have been less groveling and a little more saber rattling but that is about it.

                If you honestly think that McCain would have been able to get the political support for a war with Russia over Georgia, you are just delusional. We didn’t save Czechoslovakia or Hungary and no President was going to save Georgia, which is why we should have never pretended we would. And the Russians knew that.

                1. McCain wouldn’t have been able to start a war with Russia over Georgia. But you can bet your bottom dollar we’d have boots on the ground and boats in the water there by now in some “tripwire” scheme a’la DMZ in Korea.

                  And we would’ve bombed Iran already for sure.

                  1. “And we would’ve bombed Iran already for sure.”

                    That is just a fantasy. There is no evidence to back that up. McCain couldn’t have bombed Iran without the support of either the UN or the Congress, which he wouldn’t have gotten. Maybe Bush on his way out could have done it unilaterally, but McCain as a first term president with no mandate and a hostile Congress could not have.

                    Stop spreading that myth. It just makes dopes who supported Obama feel better.

                  2. I’ll stick with the belief that what they say on the campaign trail, or close to it, is mostly useless once they get into the Whitehouse. It’s easy to talk about what you would do if elected. Unfortunatly for them, there’s a harsh reality when they become President.

                    We have no idea what McCain would have really done.

                    1. No, but in relation to Iran the run up to the Iraq War might be instructive. I remember months of UN resolutions and the reluctant concession of the French to approve ‘significant consequences’ for Iraq. I remember half the Dems in the Senate and just under half in the House voting to give Bush authority to invade Iraq. I remember a treaty that Saddam signed and ignored, daily, for many, many years.

                      None of that exists for Iran, nor would it likely exist if McCain were President.

                    2. My comment was about “And we would’ve bombed Iran already for sure.”

                      Damn threaded comments. 😉

                      John, I guess McCain could have picked a fight with Iran using what power the Pres has to use troops without Congress. Then Congress would be forced to deal with Iran. But it would have been very hostile. I doubt McCain would it.

                    3. He could have. But I have a hard time believing that he’d be more likely to pick a fight with Iran as President than he was as a Senator free to bluster with no consequences running in a Republican primary.

                    4. “I’ll stick with the belief that what they say on the campaign trail, or close to it, is mostly useless once they get into the Whitehouse. It’s easy to talk about what you would do if elected. Unfortunatly for them, there’s a harsh reality when they become President.”

                      Exactly. McCain was about as likely to bomb Iran as Obama was to shut down GUITMO.

                    5. “”Exactly. McCain was about as likely to bomb Iran as Obama was to shut down GUITMO.”‘

                      As likely as Palin bringing in a new era of government.

                      It will be interesting who buys into the rhetoric of the 2012 election.

                      It’s funny that we have these every four years, yet few people actually learn it’s 95% bullshit.

                    6. Oh we are going to get a new era of government. But it won’t be Palin or anyone else doing it. They will just get the credit. It will be reality and the credit markets that will do it.

                    7. It’s obvious that Obama is the LBJ of our time. Complete with people saying McCain (Goldwater) would have led us into a bad war. Hello, Pakistan!

                  3. And we would’ve bombed Iran already for sure.

                    McCain faced a primary challenger in JD Hayworth for the Senate this year. Despite thus having motivation to appeal to the base, he spoke only of sanctions against Iran (and supporting peaceful change from within if and only if they wanted our help) this summer after their elections, not bombing them.

                    And somehow you think that McCain would be more extreme right-wing in office than when trying to win a Republican primary?

                    I certainly understand complaints about going after UFC or steroids in sports, considering his record. I understand complaints from those who dislike reimporting drugs (an issue that splits libertarians.) I understand complaints about campaign finance reform.

                    I actually think that McCain’s career of trying to make nice with the media on certain hot button issues would actually have been resulted in better than Obama on civil liberties issues, because the Democrats and the media (but then, I repeat myself) would have still cared.

                    1. Overall, I think overt military action against Iran would’ve occurred at some point by now in a McCain administration.

                      There’s lots of aspects to this. One was the Iranian elections, McCain – given his propensity to take snap-decision risks in evolving situations (see Sarah Palin) – very well could’ve seen an opportunity to antagonize the Iranians in some fashion while in the midst of their power-crisis. Tits-for-tats lead to some Believers on a Donzi in the Straits of Hormuz acting rashly, followed by more rashness, etc. That’s one scenario.

                      Another scenario is Israel. Obama is obviously cool to the Israelis, who from what I see are kind of chomping at the bit to deal a blow to the Iranian nuclear infrastructure. The Israelis could lob some Pop Turbos off their subs, but with conventional warheads there just isn’t enough firepower there to make a dent on the Iranian nuke scheme. To really hit it, “degrade their capability” in mil-speak, would take serious air power, whole “packages” with C3I and tankers type operation. Quick look at map and Israel’s strategic air power (F-15I with drop tanks, not much range there) informs one they would at least need the collusion of US-MIL in-theater to pull that off if not outright participation. Not happening with Obama. But with McCain? Maybe.

          2. We’d have a war with Iran by now, at least since the Toweled Ones put the fix in on their own elections.

            Yes, that’s exactly why this year after the election, McCain gave a speech that said:

            Furthermore, I believe that it will only be a change in the Iranian regime itself ? a peaceful change, chosen by and led by the people of Iran ? that could finally produce the changes we seek in Iran’s policies.

            and went on to advocate sanctions. I concede that harsher, and possibly counterproductive, sanctions against Iran would be more likely. But invading Iran was as likely as Obama following through on his “invade Pakistan if they don’t give us more help against the Taliban” debate statement that made McCain bug out and say was too hawkish.

            McCain had hokey ideas about National Greatness through essentially a draft for Civil Service.

            Obama’s stupid campaign ideas were essentially the same, and neither really would go anywhere.

        3. John,

          War with Iran

    4. It would have been even worse if McCain had been elected imagine how many bad things would have been accomplished.

      We know, which is why we didn’t vote for him.

      1. We know you didn’t vote for McCain, we just wish you would stop bragging about Obama.

      2. Because Obama has done a smash up job.

        How much does he have to smash up before O voting libertarians regret their vote?

        1. Oh I regret my vote wholeheartedly. I should have voted for Lettuce, or maybe Carrots. Couldn’t stand Bob Barr or woulda voted for him.

          All I’m saying is maybe I don’t regret a McCain administration compared to the clusterobama. At least Obama’s Presidency, and increasingly it appears his health-disaster, is neutered and now relatively harmless.

    5. No, Hobie… McCain would have been just as huge a mistake. Admit it, you’ll feel better.

      1. Well, that was certainly George W. Bush’s opinion, since he too favored Obama over McCain.

        Not a surprise, since it was obvious in 2008 that Obama would be a much more similar President to Bush than McCain.

  18. As much as I hate to defend Obama on something, there is one real accomplishment he has: He ended that violation of the 15th amendment known as Stop-loss in the military. Of course, he did it too late to help me personally, and even though he could end it with the stroke of a pen (no congress needed) it still took him like 6 months after he entered office. I don’t know if it lists that on that web site though.

    Excuse me while I now go puke my guts out.

    1. Section 1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.

      Section 2. The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.[1]

      Stop loss was taking away African Americans’ right to vote?

      And hey, it says on the contract you sign when you join they can stop loss you. Yeah it sucks. But we don’t have a draft. You signed the paper. Live by the terms. No one made you do it.

      1. Ahhh…. dammit… 13th amendment, not 15th. But field problems regularly prevented people from voting, so, yeah 15th amendment too.

        Back to puking.

    2. Despite Secretary Gates’s order, by April 2008 use of stop-loss had increased by 43%

      In March 2009, Gates ordered a deep reduction in the number of personnel affected by the stop loss policy.[11] “Gates said the goal is to reduce that number by 50 percent by June 2010 and to bring it down to scores or less by March 2011”

      Everything I read says reduce…not end…there is no ban, or cease order or even a repeal of the original policy… just a suggestion that the policy be used less…

      Puke once for me please

    I watched as long as I could… about three point seven seconds. I think Moore said the word “Castro” or something, but he had a look of constipation on his face and was likely cranky about not getting his between-snack meal in the MSNBC green room before his segment with Olbermann, who is as coherent and level-headed as ever.

  23. OBAMA goes about his business by speaking the lie. That he comes “with all deceivableness of unrighteousness and he spoke as a dragon and tells us that he was a false prophet, a prophet being one whose calling it is to speak and to teach. The armies of the world may have guns and tanks and bombs to bring people into submission; but the power of speech and ideas is a mighty power. In his initial attempts to destroy the cause of God, the devil used a serpent to deceive the woman with crooked speech: “You will be like God.” Now he uses a “dragon” who speaks crafty, lying words. His speeches will be heard by millions who will hang on his persuasive rhetoric. The content as well as the form of his speech will attract. Like most false prophets, he will even be sincere and passionate. But he is a liar. He adds dashes of truth to the mix, so that his lie tastes like truth. He will use all the right catchwords, using the language of the church, even throwing in a Bible text or two. But he is the ultimate Liar, and will deceive many.
    OBAMA will use every tool available: school teachers, politicians, news broadcasters, artists, musicians, scientists and doctors, lawyers and businessmen. All will be pressed into the service of OBAMA to deceive men. But especially he will use those whose calling it is to persuade and to teach — men who claim to be preachers of the gospel of Jesus Christ. THE COMMANDER

  25. Mmslim Barack Hussein Obama people have no idea of the extent to which they have to be gulled in order to be led.” “The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed, for the vast masses of the nation are in the depths of their hearts more easily deceived than they are consciously and intentionally bad. The primitive simplicity of their minds renders them a more easy prey to a big lie than a small one, for they themselves often tell little lies but would be ashamed to tell a big one.” “All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level, that even the most stupid of those towards whom it is directed will understand it. Therefore, the intellectual level of the propaganda must be lower the larger the number of people who are to be influenced by it.” “Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.===”pelosi don’t see much future for the Americans … it’s a decayed country. And they have their racial problem, and the problem of social hate …obama feelings against Americanism are feelings of hatred and deep repugnance … everything about the behaviour of American society reveals that it’s half LIES, and the other half RACIAL. How can one expect THE USA to hold TOGTHER.They include the angry left wing bloggers who spread vicious lies and half-truths about their political adversaries… Those lies are then repeated by the duplicitous left wing media outlets who “discuss” the nonsense on air as if it has merit?

  26. TO THE WEAK-KNEED REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRAT?..TO ALL THE COMMUNIST IN THE IG,FBI,CIA,AND U.S. Senators and the left wing media outlets////////07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised “Meet the Press” THEN Senator //Mmslim Barack Hussein Obama, was asked about his stance on the
    American Flag.

    General Bill Ginn USAF (ret.) asked //Mmslim Barack Hussein Obama, to explain WHY he doesn’t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played. The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171 “?During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, ‘Stand and Face It’.”

    NOW GET THIS!! ? – ? – –
    ‘Senator’ //Mmslim Barack Hussein Obama, replied:

    “As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides”.
    “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression..”
    “The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing.”

    (ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???)

    //Mmslim Barack Hussein Obama, continued: “The National Anthem should be ‘swapped’ for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing’. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as ‘redesign’ our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails ? – ? perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments.”

    “When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past”.

    “Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path? My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country’s First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America “INPEACH OBAMA THE COMMUNIST ,GOD OPEN YOUR EYES.//////For us there are only two possiblities: either we remain american or we come under the thumb of the communist Mmslim Barack Hussein OBAMA.
