More Proof that With Mr. Obama - The Lights Are On But Nobody's Home

Updated on April 26, 2010

Today I wish to defend why I am hammering this point home about the Obama-is-so-much-smarter-than-Bush myth.

A dear, DEAR and close friend took a bit of an issue with my pointing out the fumbles and bumbling acts of our current President. She wanted me to write about more important things like Obama policy. This friend is not only a friend, but she’s like family to me and while we agree on most things, thank God, when we disagree, we can simply agree to disagree. This was my answer to her edited for this forum.

Dear _______, 

First of all – while I think you know I admire and adore you and totally respect your opinions – and not just because we frequently agree — this time I’m going to have to disagree, respectfully almost 100% with you.

As to your #1 concern – I have written about policy and why this President is taking this country down in flames. I’m not asking you to read the articles below – because I think the titles in a sense – speak for themselves:

And those are just some of the 69 Hubs/blogs I’ve written.

#2 – I do not in any way, shape or form believe that these things I’m pointing out about President Obama are trivial. Especially when I use comparisons. I think – in fact – it is exactly this reason – the Left hammering President Bush over seemingly “trivial” things – that we now have an American Idol President in the office destroying our country.

It’s the Mayor Giuliani school of thought if you will. If you clean up the little things, it leads to bigger and then bigger things and before you know it – huge changes are made. In the case of Giuliani though – his small changes leading to bigger changes were for great reasons. With the Left – it literally turned to evil.

Do you remember when the Dixie Chicks went overseas and said they were embarrassed that President Bush was from Texas? They were thrown under the bus, scores and scores of Americans were outraged and their careers were destroyed so far – never to recover again. Fast forward to the 2008 election. The Dixie Chicks were the heroes of the Left and George Bush limped out of office. I absolutely am convinced that the lies against the character and policies of President Bush that the Left used with the help of the mass media - were the cause he became so unpopular. And in the interim, I believe the Left and the Democrats weakened the last years of the Bush Presidency which was very dangerous for this country. And now – as a result – we have the American idol President from hell. What did the Left start with? Bush is stupid – Bush lied.

That’s really all they began with – but it was relentless and both are lies. Regardless – the lies stuck and I have never seen such a turn around by the American public - so quickly ever of a U.S. Presidency. Rosey O’Donnel right after 9/11 said, George Bush did a wonderful job. This turned to vicious, hateful, horrible character assassination by the Left to of course include O’Donnel, that the Republicans found out too late irreparably harmed George Bush and ultimately, the Republican Party. Why? NO ONE COUNTERED THE LEFT’S LIES. And it only started with “Bush is stupid, Bush lied.”

Now I’m not saying George Bush didn’t contribute in some way to his own “demise” - but what Presidency is perfect? No Presidency. Every two term President suffers at some point of unpopularity no matter how good a President. And the unbelievable thing is – the Left was able to “prove” Bush lied – until it became “fact” about WMD’s and convince the American public that NO DEMOCRAT AGREED TO GO TO WAR IN IRAQ. When the facts are – no one DISAGREED at the time. It’s the most fantastic (up to that date) ruse ever perpetrated on the American public in history! EVERYONE to include our allies around the world, to include an independent study by the useless U.N. (the darling of the Left) agreed that Saddam Hussein had WMD’s! Everyone agreed with the intelligence that he had WMD’s! Including the preceding Clinton Administration with Bill and Hillary making speech after speech proclaiming it! How could that have changed so fast? How is that possible?? How could the President make that speech after 9/11 saying ANY COUNTRY that harbors, helps, contributes money or resources to Terrorist Organizations IS THE ENEMY OF THE U.S. later have to defend the lie, “The Bush Administration lied and said S. Hussein caused 9/11.?” The Bush administration NEVER said that! But going back to that speech – Iraq became the enemy of the U.S. because – they helped, harbored, aided and abetted TERRORSITS and AT THE TIME – everyone thought they had WMD’s and WOULD USE THEM. In hindsight – sure – it wasn’t an imminent danger – but at the time – we all agreed, the U.S. couldn’t take the chance!

I remember dismissing the Dixie Chicks when they came out with their anti-Bush rant. What a fringe – kook harmless group they were! Only they eventually turned out to be the MAJORITY who voted in this dangerous tyrant we now have as President! No more! I now am going to do my small part because to this very day – I still hear the brain washed liberals spout - “Bush lied, Bush is stupid.” Yet they believe President Obama is a genius! I’m going to do my best to prove their judgment is WRONG!

By showing what you think to be “trivial” matters – it has to cause people to at least think. They’ll deep, deep down believe it because it’s the truth. The truth of the matter is – Mr. Obama ISN’T such a wonderful speaker. A thrill doesn’t go up the leg of the informed because we know – HE’S A SHALLOW ARROGANT SMOKE AND MIRRORS ACT. The truth is, he’s actually not very smart at all – and that’s really scary given the stupid mistakes he’s made. They’re not trivial at all! When these very clear realities are hammered – somebody, somewhere who isn’t a complete brain-washed-cult-victim, who isn’t past the point of no return – maybe can be reached and maybe in the VERY least – will lose their energy to go out and vote the next liberal into office. I can tell you right now – the Left is NOT energized. The RIGHT is though – and why? Because the truth is setting this country free! Or at least – has the potential to! We’ll see in the next coming elections.

When a Democrat – not a Leftist Loon Dem – but a regular one – sees those videos – they HAVE to cringe. How can anyone NOT? While it won’t “recruit” a total Lefty – it might just dampen the fervor, which brought them to the polls for Obama – and we can get people who promise to uphold the Constitution for a change into office across this great nation.

Lastly – the very, very public disgraceful things this President does I am convinced – weakens this country. When leaders of countries who hate the U.S. and want our demise – sees this idiot do the idiotic things he does (and even his wife does – who on this planet DOESN’T know – meeting the Queen of England means YOU NEVER TOUCH HER! I learned that in grade-school that this is PROTOCOL) it weakens us. Our enemies believe we are led by a weak, very stupid man. I just saw a compilation of foreign political cartoons about President Obama. He was vilified and looked like the buffoon he’s acting like. The gig is up – they GET that he’s merely a slickly packaged façade and they’re all laughing at us.

The Olympics fiasco – the Nobel Peace Prize – the fall-out after that was scathing around the world. Holy cow what a serious JOKE! Just to name a few proofs that the world thinks he’s a brainless leader who can’t lead a rat to cheese.

Now you may have an argument that I’m actually helping to enlighten our enemies that this President is a buffoon. That’s a point arguably. However – I do it to shame and/or hopefully convince those who voted for him. Or at least make those who voted for Obama to THINK about their choice the next time they go to the polls. Or dishearten them enough not to go to the polls at all — I’ll take that as well.

If one person reads my blog Tweets the link and four others pick it up and each send it to two people, they send it to three people – and so on – MAYBE the word will begin to get out. Those videos speak so clearly to the fact – this guy is a total The Lights Are On, But Nobody's Home. My wonderful friend ANYONE – even those on the Left see – as one of the prime examples – that saying we have 60 states (he said 57 and then when he heard laughter – because those present thought he was making a joke – HA – JOKE’S ON THEM – and thinking “quick on his feet” - he ‘corrects’ himself by saying – he had one more to go and hadn’t gone to 'Alaska and Hawaii') is utterly bone headed! It’s not as if he misspoke and then corrected himself. He didn’t “mispronounce” anything like they used to hammer George Bush about doing. When President Obama said that Austrians speak “Austrian” -- this isn’t tripping over the tongue. This is STUPIDNESS – the Left HAVE to adjust how they think when they see those videos.

Or not and they could stay brainwashed. I think at least some though, will change their minds.Why? Because the truth is - President Obama is no genius.

They may not admit it. They may not wish to run to my blog and say, “Hey –you’re right all you conservatives!” But I’m betting – if the word keeps getting out enough – they will deep inside think about it.

This isn’t that nonsense about Mr. Obama's birth certificate. There is NO real evidence that he wasn’t born in the U.S.. It’s a truly weak argument. But just those two blunders alone – the 60 states gaffe and the “Austrian” language gaffe is proof he's a GOOF and not very smart at all. That's real evidence. There is simply no argument for that. Not for any thinking person. You see it with your own eyes and hear it.

The mantra of the left that anyone who stands out on the Right is “They’re stupid.” Sarah Palin – what is THE biggest thing they say about her? She’s stupid. I know you don’t like her – but that’s not my point. She may be a lot of things – but she’s hardly stupid. IN THE LEAST – she’s not as stupid as President Obama or Joe Biden! Yet that’s instantly what they did the MINUTE she was chosen as McCain’s running mate. She’s brainless. Hillary – brilliant – Palin – stupid.

Bush stupid – Condoleezza Rice – stupid, Ronald Regan – stupid. It’s their very obvious strategy (see “Rules For Radicals” by Saul Alinsky – it’s one of the common strategies he lays out in his book for Leftist strategies and a great influence in Hillary and Obama’s life).

Anyway – not trying to convince you believe it or not. I’m just showing you WHY I disagree — in detail. You write your articles about what you believe to be the important things we need to highlight – and I’ll write mine. Both will serve a good purpose. Ultimately – we agree – we need to get these evil American destroyers out of office and we need to do it FAST!

So what I wrote to my friend above is why I show videos and tell the truth about the lies of the Left. EVERYONE, myself definitely included, makes mistakes. But these videos show not only mistakes but the truth about Mr. Obama. He's not all that smart, and that's what important to glean from them. So the next time someone says to you, "Bush is stupid" bring them here to show them their guy's no Einstein either...

This last one includes the incredible arrogance and ego of this President -with his "Fly By Photo Op" of planes in New York City

      ChristopherD-Remember when Mr. Obama was making his endless speeches pushing his Obamacare and he kept saying, "If you like your insurance, you can keep it. Either he didn't know his own bill or he lied. It's just as you said, more and more companies are going public saying it will be much, much cheaper now under this health care to simply pay the danged fine per employee. So they're just going to let their employees find their own insurances. In essence - you don't get to keep your insurance! PLUS - the bill will also cost the companies billions in some cases, millions in others - per year because it stops the tax deductions for their retirees on their payroll. you said - just go out to that money tree and pick some Obama money...

      I stand up bow to you and shake your hand for you have said it so gracefully. Obama has only blamed Bush for everything at this point with all the other Democrats. They never can say ooops we made a mistake its our fault?

      Well at this point more companies have come forward to say the HC bill will be a lot cheaper then ever running their own company insurance policies. So hopefully some of that Obama money is still on the tree for the whole US to use and get out of trouble darn soon.

      Evory - I thought it was 3 million he made - reports are it was "from sales of his book." Which actually is possible - doubtful but possible.

      HERE is something you will not see on the major news stations. Check it out



      There is much that was not written about candidate Obama during the 2008

      presidential campaign. The main-street media was not reporting many of

      Barak Obama’s ties to radical groups. It appears that Fox News was one of

      the very few to expose many of his past experiences.

      The news media did not report about Obama’s relations with the Joyce

      foundation and other radical groups supported by the Joyce foundation.

      For an in-depth review of Obama’s connection to the Joyce foundation,

      Tides, Acorn and other radical groups, Google ‘’ The Joyce Foundation’’.

      The answers to why and who the real Obama is can be found in his

      relationship as a director of the foundation. The plans to change our

      government is in full throttle without much opposition from his party.

      Today 4/26/10 on Fox News, Glen Beck program ,Goldman Saks was the

      main topic. To try to understand what is occurring in congress debating the

      financial reform bill and cap and trade bills one must look back into the past.

      Today’s Glen Beck’s program is a must see.. Check it out on Fox,

      click on Glen Beck and open ‘’The one thing why Goldman Saks is willing

      to take the heat’’.

      A program for the public to try to understand what the media is not

      reporting and covering up in the news.

      Did you hear the Obamas made $6 million this last year. Where did it come from. I thought he was one of us poor. That is a lot of money for a community organizer. Some this is wrong here!

      Keep on hubbing!

      And SOBF - I'm sorry you feel I "hate" President Obama - I don't. I struggled with hating President Clinton - and vowed I wouldn't do that again. And I really don't - as of this writing, hate this man at all. He's certainly a good looking man - he's apparently a good husband and father - and I think some day he might have made a very good President were he not so inexperienced and egotistical. It gives me no pleasure what-so-ever that Mr. Obama is an international embarrassment. I posted the email I wrote to a friend - and sometimes - President Obama makes me very angry. I admit that too. When he lies it just sends me through the roof - he isn't aware of the Tea Party movement - ah huh...and he didn't know Reverend Wright "said those things." I get mad at the man - but he's the President and I have hope that someday, somehow, he'll wake up and change. And I mean - change from being a socialist. Otherwise - I pray in the next Presidential election he'll be voted out. But I don't hate him. And that's the truth.

      Sheri - I did the same thing when I researched and tried to find video of President Obama's gaffes. I didn't have to look very far! Thank God for the Internet and Fox News is all I can say!! Thanks for stopping by!

      It is obvious that you hate Obama with every fiber of your being, but lets be fair. In one statement you applaud Bush for getting us in two wars. Then you turn around and bash Obama for the casualties of those wars. Of course there are more casualities in Afghanistan, there are more soldiers than at anytime Bush was President, but I guess for your purpose that really doesn't matter, nor does it matter that more Taliban leaders have been killed during Obama's Presidency than all of Bush's.

      No one has a clue about Obama's school grades, elementary through law school, yet they're content to call him smart. And as you've so aptly pointed out, the evidence shows otherwise.
