Living in Obama's Fairy Tale
September 15, 2011
Let’s play pretend, shall we? Let us assume that we are back in olden times during the George W. Bush Administration. Let us work very hard to picture in our minds-eye a joint session of Congress, called by the President, and during something like say, oh, how about a “Jobs Speech” he proclaims that Abraham Lincoln was the “founder” of the Republican Party.
I myself knew Abraham Lincoln was a Republican. Yet this little nugget of history intrigued me. Upon verification, The Teleprompter a.k.a. Mr. Obama the real-life speaker of those words--got it wrong. Lincoln wasn’t the founder or even a founder of the Republican Party.
His speech launched the Republican Party into historical infamy, but Lincoln wasn't a founder.
Keep your Let's-Pretend hats on for me for just a moment longer. I want you to visualize if George W. Bush had spoken those words making such a blunder.
CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN et al would have had that their lead off story every hour on the hour.
So stepping out of Obama Fairy Land, let's travel to the here-and-now.
Let us go to a website called:
Now, you might say, that doesn’t sound so horrible. Let me show you a capture of their homepage:
OUR PRESIDNT HAS A WEBSITE CALLED ATTACKWATCH??
Notice the link on the left hand side of the page that says, “Report an Attack.”
Back to Fairy Tale Land.
Just imagine if you will, that this was a website that instead of “Paid for by Obama for America” at the bottom of the page, it had, “Paid for by Bush for America.”
The Obama administration, those rascals, are (again) calling for U.S. Citizens to turn in other U.S. Citizens – not for breaking any laws, but for exercising their constitutionally protected rights of free speech.
Notice the wording “ATTACK” and “Report an ATTACK” and “Join ATTACK wire.”
Kind of gets me all misty eyed and brings me back to the Jimmy Hoffa eloquent speech (that the Obama administration has YET to denounce) where ole Jimmy said, “Let’s take these sons of b______es out!”
It gives me such a lump in my throat when I recall those sweet, loving and caring words…
Keep trying to imagine if this was a Tea Party website or Republican website.
Now I wasn’t able to verify if this organization was an ACORN/Soros/Moveon spin-off – it’s almost impossible to track these leftist liberal bastions down to anything other than a post office box. And frankly, although I was finally able to find a number out of the Chicago Headquarters (the go-to place for ethical political behavior), I was not going to call and offer up my phone number on a sliver platter...although something tells me they already have my number…or is that my head..?
But I digress…
So let us close our eyes, and go to a make-believe place, while we use our fertile imaginations and try to conjure up a George W. Bush website looking like this and asking citizens to turn other citizens into the federal government.
Where is the outrage by the left? Where is the frightened and panicked concern that U.S. Citizens are being spied upon?
Remember that? The Bush administration did not wire tap U.S. Citizens unless those U.S. Citizens happened to be contacting known terrorists or terrorists organizations overseas.
Yet the left went absolutely batty over this! “The evil Bush administration is in your bedroom watching you and listening to you! Every phone call and every email you send is being monitored by the Great Satan!” They proclaimed.
Yet here, the Obama administration is recruiting spies to spy on other citizens publicly!
Does anyone recall the screaming and gnashing of teeth and the outcry of the left when the Bush administration was trying to monitor those who conversed with terrorists? The left was so loud my ears are still ringing from their carping and screeching. Of course, they had the help of the lib stream media to sound the alarm...
Where are those scardy cats now when you need them for crying out loud?
“Dash it all,” [self I says as I take my riding crop and hit my leg in frustration] “You just can’t get any decent liberal help these days…”
What with the Feds suing Arizona, now rumors of harassing the governor of Wisconsin (this latest abuse of power no doubt fueled by union thugs) stepping in to stop an AT&T merger with T-Mobile to save us from those insidious monopolies—wait—I know the times are economically rough. Did we lose Verizon and Sprint somewhere and I don’t know about it?
What with EPA ruling and new laws that usurp the things Congress has already said “No” to.
Gestapoesque raids like the one on Gibson Guitars --- apparently for the crime of donating money to Republicans…
The Food Nazis now wanting to "regulate" and fine businesses for showing Lucky Charms commercials.
And my fav-- Obamacare, “You have to buy the insurance we tell you to, “ Says the Federal Government, “Or you’ll pay big fat fines.”
Folks – the list goes on and on and it’s starting to scare me nigh unto an early demise! I've just bitten my nails to the nub!
Is there any stone left unturned with regard to the federal government in our private lives and businesses? Is there anywhere the tentacles of this corrupt administration is not slithering into?
Worse, are there no lengths to which the Obama administration will not go to to maintain their stranglehold on power and ultimately the citizens of the United States?
Sometimes I wonder if this is all just a very bad dream, or we’re in the middle off a surreal, evil Fairy Tale.
Only in this one, if we don’t vote this guy into a one term Presidency in 2012, there won’t be a happy ending.
Be afraid, be very darned afraid…
