Obama thrown to wolves

  • Follow Letters

It was a surprise to feel that twinge of empathy as I watched a recent video of President Obama walk alone, head slightly bowed, to his Oval Office.

I was never a fan, but I have come to believe that he originally had a plan to help the poor in America. He was naïve, to say the least. I believe he had encountered racism in his life and hoped to make a “change.” His handlers wanted only to make history by having a black man become America’s president – albeit a man who was untried, inexperienced and uninformed. They chose him as a symbol: a symbol to show the world how unprejudiced we really were.

Obama was charismatic, liberal and confident. But he had no idea of how to be a president. Because of this major flaw, his liberal handlers threw Barack Obama to the Washington wolves. It was a waste of a good man.

One of the criticisms blacks had about Obama is he had never

had the "black experience" because of his background of privilege. He did not grow up deprived. He attended the best private high school in Hawaii and the best colleges on the Mainland. We have never known from where the money came for this expensive education . Was it from some "handlers" who groomed him along with others hoping one would make it to the top like one sperm out of thousands making it to fertilize the egg? Perhaps.

I don't think he encountered much if any racism as he grew up. I think he has an inferiority complex when he is around other blacks because of this lack of the "black experience".

The letter writer is correct to say he is in over his head and is inexperienced. He has no leadership background. No business experience. Nothing to prepare him for the job of president and now we are suffering as a result.

Reading his two books one learns that he was a Marxist who sought out the Marxist professors and students to hang with in college. At at one time, according to a fellow classmate who was a Marxist himself, Obama preached violent communist revolutionary change for the US. There is nothing in his history that shows he ever changed from being a radical--- only that he was transformed from violent revolutionary to working within the system to "radically change America as we know it" as he stated in his first campaign.

Make no mistake. Obama is a leftist who is trying to change America away from its Founding principles and its history of the "shinning city on the hill" to one of a leftist styled European socialism.

He has never been taught the true history of this great country and what makes America exceptional. Nowhere in his educational experience from attending school in Indonesia; to attending private schools in Hawaii; to attending the leftist colleges would he have had courses in American history other than that of a colonial empire who was a sore on the world and who must be taken down to the level of others if not lower. Also, don't forget his communist mentor Frank Davis, his leftist grandfather, and his leftist mother. All pumping his skull full of mush with leftist, communist propaganda.

That is the man sitting in the White House today.

Got it right nofanofobama.He

Got it right nofanofobama.

He is not only one of the wolves, there are many democrat coconspirators that are dead set to destroy this country and then sit back and claim, again, that they have the answers to our problems. The low information voters are the ones that not only are the victims of the democrats but they are also the ones putting these people back nto office. They fall for the democrats lies all the time. Look at where thay are in society after decades of democrat promises. They are in the same situation as they were in the beginning, Poor, ignorant, and still voting democrat.

Obama is no victim. He's the criminal himself. Always blaming others, spinning lies, cultivating a secret agenda to bring this great country to its knees, and a terrible racist....

And that, folks ...

is in part how we got here. Obama wasn't naïve, the voters were. Everything based on emotion, while throwing logic out the window.

The writer is right about one thing - "he had no idea of how to be a president." It's a shame that it's taken so many people so long to see it.

I see the country with its' head bowed, wondering 'what do we do now?'

BTW -

I don't blame him for trying to save the world, feed the hungry, help the homeless etc etc etc - We all want to do that. The problem is that his "solution" is not a solution. You cannot help the hungry by giving them food, you help them by teaching them how to fish. You help them by creating jobs and strengthening the economy and making people self reliant, not dependent on government. A government that is going broke very soon anyways! In theory his ideas might have had some value, but his approach and solutions are bogus (and socialist, and anti-American). And we are fed up with them!!!

So true! We have a bunch of uneducated young men and women that feel entitled to everything. Bad combo. I much rather the government spend my tax dollars on education and job creation than on food stamps

The article should read Obama

The article should read Obama wolf in sheep's clothing. Remember he didn't emphasize his senate experience as a politician,but tried to be the non-politician and community organizer. He is the most "political" and rather than serve America serves his party and politicizes everything. He is shameful.

As an Obama supporter, It is diffecult to find anything to argue about in this LTE! This statement is one of the major reasons Obama was elected twice!

Last paragraph

"Obama was charismatic, liberal and confident. But he had no idea of how to be a president. Because of this major flaw, his liberal handlers threw Barack Obama to the Washington wolves. It was a waste of a good man"

Nothing to say but this Democrat hates, very much, to have to agree with this whole paragraph.

Obama received 'racism" from

Obama received 'racism" from blacks and whites because of his mixed heritage. It isn't like he had the average black experience and he did admit his past actions of drug abuse and radical communism. People did want a change from the usual politician, but we were lied to from the beginning that Obama was different. He separated himself from political baggage by being the community organizer-what a ruse. I believed it too for awhile. But he was concocted for political office.

In Over His Head

I get what she's saying. I, too, believe Obama is a good man who was trying to make a lot of social and foreign affairs changes even if most of us disagree with them. The problem is he was too inexperienced and naive. His international diplomacy has taken a real world turn now that he sees the results and is being briefed by experts. Obamacare has long been a dream of the Democrats, but we are seeing surface hard questions about the program and realize it won't work. He just got in over his head unfortunately and will go down in history as a poor president.

10-4 River. You and I are on the same page. I don't understand people who, in one breath say he is the most incompetent person in Washington; and in the next say he is a brilliant manipulator. The Dems said the same about Bush for 8 years, but you can't have it both ways.

Obama is just in way over his head.

Obama is a confirmed

Obama is a confirmed socialist/communist with utopian ideals of a society where everyone gives equally and gets equally.....theoretically. Unfortunately, he never studied anything practical. He does not realize that his utopian ideals do not work in a society where HALF do all of the giving (paying) and the other HALF do all of the taking.

Will his ideals work in a different society with different demographics....like say in the Scandinavian countries. Yes, possibly quite well. But MOST of them GIVE as much or MORE than they GET. They TRULY can help the needy because they do not have to support the LAZY, the USELESS, and the UNEDUCATED BY CHOICE. That is why a liberal form of communism actually kind of worked in China......because MOST of them will actually work, contribute, and they value education. But Obama's utopian ideals WILL NOT WORK WITH OUR DEMOGRAPHICS and failing liberal education system.

President Obama just

President Obama just condemned House Speaker John Boehner's outrageous plan to force a government shutdown over Obamacare. The President is calling you to action: " It's time for us to say once and for all we can't afford these kinds of plays." The vote is today, and we absolutely must answer the President's call. That's why we're expanding our " Stop the Shutdown" Project and DOUBLING our ad spending against the GOP - to directly take on Republicans who would shut down the government to force the end of Obamacare.

.
No, it was, and is a waste of a good eight years. It was a waste of a great nation's resources and potential. It was a waste of the hopes and dreams of untold Americans whose future will be damaged and limited by the hate and fear driven mindless agenda of a small group of individuals and organizations to include our nation media.

It was all wasted in the name and in the failed concept of political correctness and affirmative action at the highest levels of national leadership.

It was the Peter Principle proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Yet the man continues to walk and talk with a swagger and an arrogance that openly belies his incompetence.

He sees in the mirror, his own Potemkin reflection.

itsanotherday1 - "I don't

itsanotherday1 - "I don't understand people who, in one breath say he is the most incompetent person in Washington; and in the next say he is a brilliant manipulator. The Dems said the same about Bush for 8 years, but you can't have it both ways."

Sure you can. You can be a highly partisan individual, brilliant and manipulative at implementing your agenda and beliefs. But if there are fundamental flaws in the philosophies that drive your agenda, the results of your actions can highlight incompetence.

I’ve met people who were considered “brilliant” by many persons, only to fail miserably at some task considered fairly straight-forward by more “common” folk.

Then you have the legions of “brilliant” people in media, education, art, and politics who continue to support an ideology that has time and again proven to be a failure. Not just a failure, but dangerous to the health and happiness of humans.

How else would you describe these people that are so brilliantly and arrogantly incompetent?

I'd say the American people have been thrown to the wolves. Obama is an empty suit elected because of white guilt and black racism. He never had the background to make him worthy or capable of leading this country. History will indeed rate him along with Jimmy Carter as possibly the worst ever to be the POTUS. Hillary would have been light years better. I blame my republican party for foisting McClain on us to go against Obama. Having him as a candidate insured Obama's election.

House Republicans just thrown American people to wolves.

The House Republicans just made their 42nd vote to defund Obamacare. The government is facing a shutdown and these moron on their last breath trying to defund Obamacare. The bad part about this is the Republicans are lying on their constituents saying that they want to see Obamacare defund, a big flute. The Republican Party of today is a different breed altogether. The more you hear and read bout the elephant party, the more you want to change parties.
