"Hope" For A Sincere Obama?

Updated on March 11, 2013

Take It From Bill Barack!

One can hope for many things but a 'sincere' Obama is not one of them. Obama has wined and dined Republican Congressional leaders as they head into the coming budget battles and I'm sure their little tummies are appeased having viewed the overpriced vittles that we, the tax payer, paid for. Keep in mind that these days of sequestration are meant to be tough, just not on our political elite.

So now it appears that Obama is going to put his 'sincere face' on once again. I'm beginning to think he has a warehouse full of them lined up for any occasion. One of two things will be the case as I see it. Either Obama has decided to open up a charm school or he might actually be sincere. Put your money on the charm also known as beware of the wolf in sheep's clothing.

This whole change of strategy doesn't pass the smell test. He has continually made it his political tacit to blame the Republicans, especially the House of Representatives, for his failure to lead. Maybe he went through the George Patton speed leadership course recently. I doubt it though. Usually if something is totally out of character then it stinks. He never wooed Congress since he was elected in 2008 so why is he going to start now. Even when he had both Houses of Congress he was standoffish.

There is a distinct difference between being a politician, which Obama is consummate at, and being a leader which he knows little about. His preferred method, even of late after he was at the end of needing to campaign, is to continue to campaign. That's the one thing he knows how to do. Campaigning is not 'leadership.' It is a form of charm school. Lets just get out there and tell the slobbering masses how marvelous Barack is and have them believe him.

The night Rand Paul was conducting a filibuster on the floor of the Senate Obama was wining and dining the Senate RINOs telling them how gracious he would be if they toed the line for him. He put on his best "I'm willing to compromise face" for them. i can only hope that they know darned well the man doesn't have the word "compromise" in his vocabulary other than to use it only as a word.

Need I Say More About Compromise?

So this week he plans to actually go up onto Capitol Hill to visit both parties in their chambers which should prove interesting. I have it being no more than a public relations ploy. Somehow Obama's past actions have left a bad taste in my mouth about his motives. It is speculated that he is going up there to broker some sort of "grand bargain." His past form of bargaining has been the "my way or the highway' type of negotiations (Obamacarre comes to mind) so our law makers better be paying close attention to every word that comes out of his teleprompter's mouth.

His last move was to go out on the campaign trail calling for more taxes after they gave him the tax increase he asked for to avoid the fiscal cliff. He promised 2 and a half dollars in corresponding spending cuts for every dollar of tax increase but then conveniently forgot about his end of the deal. He thinks he can tax his way out of the looming national debt debacle. It's not going to happen because they isn't that much money in our pockets to safe their irresponsible butts.

Paul Ryan, on a Sunday talk show said, "I hope this is sincere." Paul? You still believing in that hope and change routine. Believe your eyes, not your ears.


Here's the menu for Obama's RINO feast. Someone say something about sequester?

Lobster Thermidor with a white wine saffron galcage and herbed baby potatoes:
$85

Moulard Duck Breast:
$85

Filet of Beef with truffled potato mouselline, bone marrow and Madeira Jus:
$85

"Vote It," "Like"It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

As Always,

      Some decades ago, I had a most important spiritual dream which very much applies here. The words that were told to me, and which I never forgot, were,

      "NEVER TRUST A RATTLESNAKE."

      You must be kidding, Jim. A 'Sincere' Obama is the biggest oxymoron of them all.

      poetvix - And we call there 'Public Servants." I call them garbage. McCain and Graham both need to go. Both of them are like tits on a bull here in Texas.

      Nice. While the RINOs are sucking back 85 dollar dinners, so they can consider chumming up with the Villain in Chief, over 17 million American children will go to bed hungry tonight. While I'm not a supporter of long term entitlement programs, for I feel they are their own form of self perpetuating slavery, I would rather see my tax dollars feed starving children right here at home than fat, mega rich, power hungry politicians.

      FitnezzJim - When I saw the meni printed I believe the cheapest entree was $85.00. One heck of a sequester we are under. What a bunch of frigging hypocrites.

      Are they really dinner parties? or just an opportunity to personally serve up the kool-aid?

      One has to give it to the man, he is consistent. The fact that he's breaking pattern now in an effort to suck up to senate Rhinos only says one thing. We have a chance. His ego would never allow it unless their support for whatever he has up his sleeve is crucial to his plans. It's time for us to come down on them like stink on a big pile. I wonder just how many nerves Rand tapped on that we may not have figured out. Such information could be priceless.

      "Sincere" and "Obama" don't belong in the same sentence. When he doesn't get what he wants he will point to all the "things" he didi to bring about compromise. I can't take the hypocrisy.

      Washington D.C., i.e. The White House, and Congress to an extent, is so overloaded with liars and law breakers that they must have coffee each morning to compare notes so they don't get caught with their pants down. Once it pops, they will all have their "pants on fire."

      I would certainly hope that more than just a few of us can see through this charade. He will use these fake meetings to further convince his loyal followers that he is doing everything he can to gain cooperation from those damn Republicans, but they just wont see things his way.

      I sometimes wonder if the world will ever wake up and see through this imposter?

      There is not a sincere bone in BO's body...unless it is for his liberal, socialist, destructive-to-America-and-the-Constitution's, agenda. It makes me literally sick to my stomach to listen to the news and radio and to the people that voted for him...take for instance the recent Jimmy Kimmel question on the street about the President sending the sequester to Portugal - it is no longer "low information voters" it is "NO information voters"! It is absolutely no wonder our great Country is in the state it is in now under this lying imposter.
