Are We There Yet?
The Obama Speech Experience
By Lisa Richards
January 29, 2010
Listening to Barry Obama speak is like reliving those long childhood vacation drives up the Connecticut/Rhode Island coast to the ferry boat that would take my family out to the New England Islands for the summer. The ride was boring for three active children who hated to sit still. My brothers and I sat in the back seat of our family Town and Country Station Wagon incessantly whining “are we there yet?” to which my father would answer, every ten minutes, “ten more minutes.”
Barry Obama makes me wonder if we’re there yet; but where; Sweden or Russia? My father’s answer was intentionally sarcastic. It was either the ten-more-minutes answer or dump three noisy kids off on the side of the road, fleeing with my mother to a place of peace and sanity. Obama has no answers, he has plenty of ideas, Marxist schemes, but he can’t actually state his antagonism toward America and what he wants to do to Americans, so he must filibuster every speech, and question, he himself knows lacks all sense and reason.
Obama’s latest aggrandized filibuster in Baltimore, Maryland insists job growth and middle-class are on the rise and doing well.
As Amanda Reinecker of The Heritage Foundation points out in her latest column “The state of our union has been better:” “Even before President Obama delivered his State of the Union address on Wednesday, most lawmakers and most Americans already knew the current state of our union. To put it gently, it has been better. President Obama has spent a year in office, without much to show for it—apart from a staggering economy, increased debt, weaker defense and foreign policies, and several costly big-government proposals that have stalled in the Congress. His speech this week gave him the opportunity to present Congress and the American people with a fresh set of ideas for future.”
Obama further told House Republicans he cannot understand why they held back on a $300 billion dollar tax cut to the American people: “We have seen some party-line votes that have been disappointing. I didn’t understand then, and I still don’t understand, why we got opposition in this caucus for almost $300 billion in badly needed tax cuts for the American people. Let’s face it; some of you have been at the ribbon-cuttings for some of these important projects in your communities.” This is Obama playing politics to the never-educated voters who believe he has an enormous money reserve. Republicans refused a YES vote on the $300 billion “tax-cut” because it would not go to anyone but welfare, which includes illegal aliens on welfare.
Obama’s plan for America is Karl Marx in a Che Guevara T-shirt. Chinese-made of course.
I must give Karl Marx credit: in all his books, essays, letters, manifestos, he never once attempted to hide his plans, beliefs, or hate for capitalism, free markets, free trade, private property, business, and self-government. At least Marx had the guts to admit he wanted to destroy everything to do with personal ownership and place people under complete government control. Obama follows those creeds, but he won’t admit them publically or his beloved flock would realize he intends on keeping them enslaved for life while he lives like a king.
Obama wants the lower and middle-class voters believing he is creating jobs and making the markets jump upward, when in fact the opposite continues happening. Obama wants cap and trade, higher taxes on everything across the board, government controlled healthcare funding illegals and abortions, prohibiting women complete medical exams, restricting treatment to anyone over 65 and those with serious illnesses requiring immediate attention.
Obama used healthcare to smack Minority Leader John Boehner in the face for his House Floor stance last year against the Healthcare Bill: “If you listen to the American people, John, they’ll tell you they want their money back,” further telling Boehner the American people are “bitter and contentious” over the fact men like Boehner have not allowed healthcare to pass: “If anyone here truly believes our health insurance system is working well for people,” Obama purposely challenged in an attempt to sound Reaganesque, “I respect your right to say so, but I don’t agree.”
The only people, who would benefit from anything Obama passes, if Republicans and Blue Dogs are foolish enough to allow his bills to pass, are welfare recipients. The American people know this, which is why millions are marching in Tea Parties.
Obama says he is “not giving up on passing healthcare reform.” But he does pass the blame onto others for how the healthcare bill is structured. Apparently the president has no idea what is in the bill he, Pelosi and Reid, created. Neither do Republicans, nor the people, something Obama swore wouldn’t happen in his administration: closed door sessions and bookroom deals.
Obama claims, however, that he wants to work with Republicans, whom he wants to “challenge my ideas.” He believes “Having differences of opinion, having a real debate about matters of domestic policy and national security, that’s something that’s not only good for our country, it’s absolutely essential.”
What is essential is partisanship, not bi-partisanship, but competition between the two parties, not sharing ideas, not working together, or the two parties simply become one in ideology, something the Founders did not want. But Obama insists Republicans must come to the Democrat table, finding a compromise, because “Americans didn’t send us to Washington to fight each other in some political steel cage match, [they did not elect us] to continue being so Washington-like.”
Americans have two parties because they want two parties to fight for different beliefs and policies. We the people want leaders duking it out in a political steel cage, not playing nice and compromising the beliefs and will of the people.
Still, Obama pulled out all stops, appearing beaten down by those he so desires to be friends with and work with for the betterment of his beloved America: “Just think about it for a while; we don’t have to put it up for a vote today.” In other words, Obama’s trying, but evil Republicans care more about America, free-trade, free-markets, liberty, private property, business creation, tax-cuts, capitalism, and that rotten Constitution getting in Obama’s way, preventing him from giving away 100% of hard-earned money to those living off the American taxpayer.
We’re not there yet, and never will be, if Americans fight the Marxist and Chief and continue electing more conservatives by rejecting all modern-day liberals, i.e. progressives.
Again, this was another long, drawn out are-we-there-yet speech declaring so much ado about nothing. This Baltimore spectacle made the British look intelligent in comparison.
The last two days of speeches should make Christ Matthews “almost forget Obama is” a Marxist.
