A common refrain from progressive socialists is that if you don’t agree with their agenda it’s because you’re just not quite smart enough to understand it (well, either that or you’re a racist).
And so, case in point, as reported by the Washington Times, “President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.”
So they guy responsible for the “Lie of the Year, 2013″, is accusing people of saying things that aren’t true? The fella who has more Pinocchios than Gepetto himself is bringing up the issue of integrity? But what most offends me is this president’s dismissive opinion of Americans’ understanding — we certainly understand abandoning four Americans to die.
“Over time, they start thinking, ‘you know what, all politicians are the same.’ And most folks don’t have the time to sort out all the intricacies of Obamacare or Benghazi, or this or that. They don’t have time for that,” he said. “All they know is it’s not working for them. And so people then pull out and they drop out, and they don’t work. And that further entrenches those who are protecting an unjust status quo.”
So Barack Hussein Obama thinks we’re just not smart enough to comprehend his failures. We’re not able to realize his foreign policy is beyond dismal and creating an increasingly unstable world — while he is AWOL.Well, let me speak for my fellow Americans when I say we’re smart enough to understand our border is unsecured and his executive order is the prime reason for the current illegal immigration crisis. We’re competent enough to know a U.S. Marine sits in a Mexican jail while Obama has done nothing. We are indeed wise enough to understand Obamacare was passed using non-standard procedures in the House and Senate, under Democrat control, and we continue to realize that YOU and none of your disciples even read the damn bill — as evidenced by this week’s confusing court decisions. Obama says “the Republican Party has been taken over by people who just don’t believe in government.” Good try bro, but we believe in the proper role of government as articulated in the U.S. Constitution, of which you claim to be a constitutional scholar.
I think Obama was in good company with Shonda Rhimes, the creator of “Scandal” and its star Kerry Washington, an outspoken supporter of the president who worked on his re-election campaign. With all the scandals surrounding him and his administration, art truly did get a chance to meet life — fantasy occupied the same space as reality.
Why does Barack Obama go off on all these fundraising junkets? Because it’s way more fun than staying in Washington D.C. and doing his job. I suppose Obama believes he is so capable that he can govern and lead the United States in moments of crisis on the fly. After all, as “No Drama Obama” – he can spread magic crisis dust all over America and the world as he jets about wasting American taxpayer dollars and increasing his carbon footprint.
In a weak attempt to to rally Democratic voters ahead of the crucial midterm elections, Obama said there’s no time to be discouraged over the lack of progress in recent years. Gee, I think there’s plenty of reason to be discouraged, but more reason to celebrate when we rid the country of some of his progressive socialist acolytes this November.
