Obama Switch: "Eat Your Peas" To "Eat The Rich"

Updated on April 12, 2012

The Old Election Year Switcheroo!

A brief stroll down memory lane takes us back to 2008 when a young, upstart novice politician named Barack Hussein Obama promised us so much and so far has delivered so little but there is always "hope." By the way for those who voted for him, "How's that Hopey Changey Thing Going For You? He was "The One" anointed by the Lame Stream Media who was going to "change" the way Washington DC did business. Like he ever really could huh? He was going to part the oceans and heal the planet.

He was dubbed the "Great Uniter" who was going to put partisan politics down for a nappy-poo. Didn't last long did it? Not long atall. Whatever happened to the rise of the oceans receding and him healing the planet? I'm asking his supporters, not those with enough common sense to recognize snake oil when it is served up all fiery like.

And Those At His Altar Prayed...

I never associate the word "humility" and Obama. There probably won't be a humble bone in his body until November of 2012. We had to humble Jimmie Carter too. That is beyond being an oxymoron. He's about as humble as Attila The Hun, no offense to Attila. Knowledge of his own limitations? Really? How's all that job creation he promised progressing? We're only in the longest recovery from a recession since the Great Depression. But don't attribute that to his lack of leadership, according to him anyway. It's always someone else's fault. Is there a pattern here or not?

What happened next should set anyone back a little. For the next 18 months, while unemployment was steadily rising despite his promised stimulus (that's our money) plan would prevent it from ever rising above 8 percent, he spent that year and a half shoveling those nasty Obamacare peas onto our plate that the majority of us said not only no to but hell no! The country was burning and this egomaniac was intent on having his way, no matter what anyone thought. Remember that one in November.

Then after that smoke cleared he told us it was now time to "eat our peas." He made the Jolly Green Giant jump for joy with that outburst. The pea futures market shot through the roof on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Hoo, hoo, hoo Green Giant time.

This Needs To Be Aired During The Coming Campaign Very Often

He was only kidding you see about eating our peas. He wouldn't know peas from brussels sprouts He has no plan to control his out of control spending because it is his to own up to, and he won't do that either. It's always someone else's fault that he doesn't care about ever balancing a budget, much less having one that even his own party doesn't shellac to kingdom come.

So now down he goes to Florida on the campaign trail he hasn't been off of since assuming office and darned if his tune hasn't changed from being "The Great Uniter" to "The Great Divider." You see since he couldn't bring himself to the "eat your peas" stage of cutting spending and the national debt his mantra has changed to "Eat The Rich." That's now his solution to all our problems. It's all the rich people's fault and he wants all their peas to sooth his excessive spending diet. But guess what? He could tax Lottie, Dottie and Everybody (that would include you) 100% and it wouldn't help. But since he doesn't have a record to run on he needs to have a whipping post to take his lack of leadership frustrations out on.

Better Than A Cheeseburger Moochelle?

So as we move into the next few months expect Obama to be filled with his vitriol and class warfare strategies of being The Great Divider. What happened to uniting the country and being the President In Shining Armor? And what about the oceans receding and the planet healing? Just the first of many empty suited rhetorical speeches. I'll tell you what happened. He failed and continues to fail.

Just what we need now is to tax the people who create jobs out of existence. That sounds like a very sound idea now, doesn't it? How much fairer that is than requiring EVERYONE to pay their fair share...

The vetting of Obama that should have occurred in 2008 continues.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

Sounds Like A Sound Idea

He Said What? Then Did What?

      Frog: There won't be a humble bone in his body AFTER Election Day, either--he'll blame Bush, or conservative women, or Herman Cain, or somebody.

      But I'll bet we can get his POUTING bone going, big time. :)

      tsadjatko - Anyone who is paying even the least amount of attention knows that Obama is full of sh*t. His mouth moves and he does the opposite. It isn't what he says, watch what he does.

      I just saw another clip on TV of Obama's 2008 campaign when he was preaching to unite all Americans where he proclaimed "...I don't want to pit Red America against Blue America, I want to be the President of the 'United' States of America"! Yeah right - he has done and is doing the opposite and more to divide the country than any president I can recall.

      Come to think of it you can take any clip of any speech he has ever made and demonstrate incontestable LIE after LIE that spews from his mouth! It is absolutely amazing and I wonder why somebody hasn't tried to relieve him of office based on insanity and incompetence!

      Oblabber has got to the the most evil man in the nation, or the stupidest. Even a child can see from the results that his policies are making the economy, national security, and social stability worse. Speaking of "pees", I'm waiting for someone to start making toilets and urinals with HRH's picture in it. They'd sell like hotcakes, or is that peas?

      Frog - I just can't believe people would vote for him again...but I couldn't believe it last time either. Guess I should just eat me peas?

      Pamela - I feel that your fears are well founded. This election is going to come down to just that. Obama will make promises that he won't start taking back the goodies but expand them. Watch and mark my words. Common sense should tell anyone that this nation can't afford that.

      I dread these next few months of the election process. I fear that we have become a nation of people looking for handouts. My generation was taught to work and get educated. I never considered asking for a handout even years ago when it sure would have made life easier. I also agree with partisan patriot.

      I have to agree with Partisan Patriot. There are still way too many people who simply don't mind being manipulated and lied too. Everyone on welfare will vote for him again, the union people will vote for him again and the communists, socialists and fascists among us will vote for him again. Our only chance is to outnumber them. Up and useful and awesome too.

      The sad part of all of it; it seems to be working. I'm afraid we've reach a point where we are too dumb as a nation to govern ourselves and he is cashing in on our collective ignorance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      The closer we get to November, the clearer the picture of truth -- for those of us who actually want to know the truth.
