Ok look, admittedly, Obama played a big role in the inception of OOTB. His election, motivated me to create something instead of just reading and emailing worthy links. However, I never wanted it to become a monotonous arena which only fielded an Obama bashfest.
From comments and reader emails, it’s pretty clear a lot of different types of homies are in the OOTB audience, including Obama voters. I intend to keep it that way by continuing to point to an array of topics, my favorite being the ones which clearly display the pervasive sickness of modern liberalism, a mental disorder that often renders “Onion” spoofs believable and mundane.
So, I must explain that the lack of recent posts isn’t stemming from a dearth of relevant news stories, but rather an inundation. Simply put, I’m overwhelmed, and it’s by design. The speed and voracity of Obama’s change is not only blowing my mind, it’s depressing me. I just can’t keep up, and if a wonk can’t keep up, what is everybody else supposed to do?
It should come as no surprise, really. The man was the most liberal member of the Senate even though he didn’t do anything there but skip votes and run for president. Opponents were lambasted as McCarthyites for judging him by his friends, something every parent rightfully does with their children. And of equal importance, the philosophy of overwhelming the system to confuse the masses and institute rapid and sweeping change is undoubtedly near and dear to his heart.
Remember, “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
Bush didn’t even say that, and people explain the entire War on Terror on a similar premise, yet as we’ve said, no one will accuse Obama of cherry-picking or utilizing the sitch for personal missions.
We’ve already discussed Obama’s endless “politikol kapital.” We showed you his alarmingly aggressive 1st week in office which saw him pass more executive orders than the previous seven combined presidents. We’ve endured shocking levels of corruption, lack of vetting, poor judgment and a cabinet chock full of lobbyists. We took note that his radical nominees simply disappeared…from Socialist websites. And, we also posted his consolidation of power in rendering the census, a W.H. jurisdiction. We’ll add all that to the consideration, but omit it from the following updates.
It’s crucial to remember that we were told the worldly and intellectual Obama would restore alliances and help America in her foreign and domestic pursuits.
The opposite is happening.
Literally each one of these could become its own post.
Obama humiliated America on Arab TV, ended sanctions on Iran and subsequently Ahmadinejad said he “welcomes the kind of change U.S. President Barack Obama offered.” Strange! So do liberals!
Obama’s participation would be disgusting enough, but the deliberate silence at, “Israel is racist” and holocaust denials at the rabidly anti-Semitic Durban conference planning sessions is sickening. Even Italy and Britain are threatening a boycott.
Obama quietly restored Samantha Power to his inner circle. She has questioned the Jewish Lobby and many think she has called for US troops in Israel to enforce peace with Palestinians, while subscribing to the anti-Semitic, “Walt-Mearsheimer” theory.
On the homefront, things are equally depressing.
Obama was negligent to the plight of a frozen, starving, Kentucky. Failed to utilize FEMA even after the state’s entire Nat’l guard was called up. Maybe cuz it’s not a “chocolate city.”
Some things are reassuring for Jihad-wary conservatives like these stories:
But as I take solace in the realistic stances Obama has suddenly taken on national defense, will mainstream liberals notice that his word is completely useless?
Finally, most of these disasters have occurred in the last week or ten days. We’re a month into this thing. The trajectory is down right frightening.
There’s more, of course…and you know I’ll deliver when it’s time.
