Mr. Obama a Man Without Class
There are so many photos of Mr. Bush visiting troops I couldn't put them all here if I tried.
Yesterday the world was surprised with the sudden resignation of the UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Within approximately six hours David Cameron became the new Prime Minister. Just like that. Gordon Brown was a member of the labor party, David Cameron the Conservative party. Two polar opposites. Two men who ran against each other with completely different ideas for how to run and rule the UK. Yet, and this is why I write this today – when David Cameron stepped up to the microphone for the first time after officially accepting the “nod” from Queen Elizabeth, he was nothing but a class act. He made it a point to say positive and kind things about the outgoing Prime Minister, even naming some specific things Brown had done that positively impacted the UK. What class. What grace.
Something totally lacking – and I do not say this with any happiness, from President Barack Obama. From the beginnings of his grab for the Presidency, to this very day, Mr. Obama has been disgraceful and classless in his public and sometimes private remarks about former President George Bush. We all know how he endlessly refers to the “mess he inherited.” True, we were in an economic mess. What he always, always fails to mention is this mess was directly caused by his own Democratic party members. Our economy was doing very well until the Democrats took over both Houses in 2006. Then the economy imploded after Barney Frank and Chris Dodd set up their own personal fortunes with backdoor deals with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It sounds like a Mafia family transaction. And for all intents and purposes, it was.
The downfall of our economy began with Congress, under the power of the Democrats – demanding that lending institutions lend to essentially those incapable of backing up their loans and unable to pay them. They all began to default eventually, and this domino effect led to the housing crisis as the defaults began pouring in at a record rate. Then like dominos – the rest of our U.S. economy followed suit and we had a crash and burn. All thanks to the Democrats.
However, even if all of this wasn’t true and Mr. Obama was correct – “it’s all Bush’s fault,” the fact remains it is childish and utterly lacking in class that he keeps talking about it.
Recently, Mr. Biden whispered in his ear an expletive that the world heard over the open mike. Mr. Obama – according to Mr. Biden, found this hilarious.
Mr. Obama recently referred to the Tea Party Movement using a disgusting profane slang term for a sexual act. This is our President and he’s acting like a street thug. It’s so embarrassing.
Mr. Obama called out a D.C. Police officer, opening his mouth to publicly criticize the policeman saying the “police acted stupidly” before knowing anything about the details. He insinuated that the officer acted in a racist manner. Then, because he opened his mouth and said foolish stupid things himself, he had to have what is now known as the “Beer Summit” in order to make amends.
It just goes to show you that a college degree doesn’t turn someone into a person of character. Mr. Obama is a glaring example of this.
I could go into endless examples of why this President has given only ONE press conference. He knows off the prompter, he embarrasses himself, this nation and the American people. At least he’s smart enough to realize that much. If George Bush had only one press conference, the lame stream media would be howling every single day relentlessly.
I can’t help but remember a recent President with class. It’s natural to go back to the days when we had a man in office with character, who was honest and despite the lies of the left, is a very smart and caring man. George W. Bush would regularly meet with our military and do it essentially secretly. Not that the media would have bothered to cover it anyway. But as someone once wrote, class is how you act when the camera lights are off, when others aren’t watching. That’s when the true character of an individual comes out. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/dec/22/bush-cheney-comforted-troops-privately/
Mr. Bush often visited with the military troops, their family members and especially the family members of those soldiers who gave all. Read this article about the goodness and class of this much maligned man. While you read, remember that although Mr. Obama has had the time to travel the U.S. hundreds of time to push his health care bill - he has met only one time with his Commander of all the troops, General McChrystal and he has gone only once to Afghanistan. Both meetings don’t even add up to three hours.
