SHOCKED? Don't Be!

Updated on August 28, 2013

The Headline Read...

"Obama Is An Amateur" which should come as no shock to any intelligent person. The key word there is "intelligent." So as I read along the concept of the article is exactly what I have been saying and contending since the electorate was stupid enough to elect an amateur, not once but twice, to run the most powerful nation on the earth who had zero work experience. The sum total of his work experience has been as a politician and we see what the likes of that type has bestowed upon our nation - we're broke.

Granted the guy can give a good old fashioned teleprompter speech, but teleprompters aren't known to be good leaders. So neither is Obama. He might have been semi-efficient, which is doubtful, at being a community organizer to a pack of nitwits but that isn't qualification enough to lead this nation. Seems enough nitwits did vote for this fraud but when you're on the dole and you're promised more freebies I reckon that's what we get for leaders. Empty promises that the rest of us working stiffs can't afford.

So here we sit with an empty suit named Barack Hussein Obama who never even finished a full term as a United States Senator and has an academic record that no one can verify because all his records are sealed. His supposed classmates throughout his educational process don't even remember the guy and no one finds that strange in the least?

I can assure you that the Founding Fathers had not even a passing thought of a man of Obama's lack of caliber sitting as the chief executive officer of the United States of America. Their vision runs parallel with mine and what I have advocated for years and years. This nation (read: government) needs to be run by common everyday men and women who understand how things really work out here where the rubber meets the road. You know - doctors, teachers, farmers, lawyers, lawn care guys, lemonade stand operators and such.

The founders saw it the way it should be since most of them were common, every day types themselves. They temporarily left their professions and served in various governmental capacities but didn't see it as a profession like the nitwits of today seem to think it should be. It was a part time job and still should be. Right now when they take recesses they want to avoid having town hall meetings with their constituents because they know they aren't cutting the mustard full time, much less part time.

It shouldn't come as a shock that the people who fought and died to create this nation didn't see anyone running it who has never in his life had a real job. They identified with those people who sent them to represent them. It seems imperative that any leader relates and identifies with those he leads and represents. How can one understand the struggles of common people, how we think and what we believe if they've never walked a step, much less a mile, in our moccasins?

What I am describing isn't Barack Hussein Obama. He has never been anything but a politician. Most of what he has contended himself to be either is unverifiable or "lets pretend this" sort of stuff. His moccasins have always been made of political skins. Being President of the United States is about being a leader and not an imagined one. Being a career politician is not synonymous with being a leader. Leaders are developed not born that way. Obama lacks the credentials to be an effective leader. His teleprompter does a better job of it

Then there are those who idolize Obama and anyone who disagrees with him is a racist. I lost count of how many times I've been labeled that. All I can say is that I detest incompetence regardless of the color of anyone's skin.

So here we sit with an abject failure as President for a few more years. When anything he tries fails, which seems to always be the case, someone else is always to blame. He has that pattern well established. Whether it be on the world stage or domestic issues he doesn't know what to do or how to lead. I've heard the tough talk from the pretender but have never seen the walk. We've lost how many good lives because of his equivocation, denial and out right lies? We had Obamacare forced down our throats when the whole time the majority of people don't want anything to do with it. According to Obama whose fault exactly was that? He attributes it to messaging. Of we got it Barackie Poo and we still don't like the message as the train comes completely off the tracks.

For what seemed like forever it was all Bush's fault until that wore completely thin with the public. So now when his failures crop up it is because of Republican opposition. Rubbish. His ideas are his ideas. His tactic worked though because now those imbecilic Republicans led by the likes of McCain, Graham, McConnell and who else knows who are busy fighting among themselves about NOT stopping Obamacare dead in its tracks where it belonged in the first place.

If the success of a President is measured by pop culture appearances Obama is a winner hands down. I have to admit that, but running this nation isn't about appearing before adoring, slobbering fans who wouldn't know a leader if one slapped the crap right out of them. The View, Letterman and Leno seem more important than the little things like the state of our economy, jobs rather than an ill conceived socialist plot to reform our heath care system, foreign policy rather than foreign appeasement and I can go on and on with what we've witnessed the last 5 years. We don't have terrorism to worry about anymore. Why not? Because Obama said we don't is why. Don'tcha get it yet?

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

Yes, you got suckered by a con man with the smoke and mirrors routine.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      Frog, Obama has already brought us over the cliff, we just haven't felt the full effects yet.

      As for that picture, all the Obama fainters will now think that he's a violinist and will want to find out where they can buy his musical pieces.

      I agree something is very wrong with this picture. The whole thing makes me wonder whether he was groomed to be a "Manchurian Candidate."

      Well done!

      I would love to hear more on how they profit from all this.

      This could turn much uglier as Putin and China get ready to bitch slap Obama over Syria and some Japanese Islands.

      I think it was Will Rogers, Jim, who once said: 'The best thing about America is anyone can be president. That's also the worst thing!' He WAS right on!

      Hi frogprince-I agree that we need to elect officials that are people like you and me, not rich politician's that don't understand the average guy's plight. The system is completely back asswards which I'm sure the founding father's are not happy about.

      Perhaps if the Prescient had taken to the golf links early on and left the economy and government alone, we would be prospering now.

      Ghost - Great art work and spot on.

      Stu - Evil and sinister is what I saw and experienced as I researched Obama during the first campaign. How does one appear out of the blue, have no real past visible for examination or record to judge one by and become the POTUS? Something just isn't right with this picture.

      Given the never-ending harm to our nation that Obama is imposing, and Obama's transnational "everybody should be equally miserable" attitude, I wonder whether Obama is really dumb, or instead is very smart but terribly evil at the same time. It reminds of something I read in one of Warren Buffett's annual reports: "When you buy a company, look for a management that is honest, intelligent, and energetic. But make sure you've got the first one, or the other two will kill you."

      To sum it all up, all one needs to do is Google "McNaughton Demise of America". The Utah artist (Jon McNaughton) has put everything we need to know into a single painting.

      In fact, here's a link:

      I'll just drop this here ... The problem with community organizing is that eventually the community becomes organized.

      Patti - Moochelle has an oft ignored racist past that would shock many a liberal. They might want to Google her and her radical racist past. I did and wasn't the lest bit surprised by what I read.

      You've summed him up very nicely Your Royal Highness. I can't think of anything I would add - unless you want me to get into it re: michelle ma belle. Well done. (Sad really.)

      We have no means to measure accomplishment these past five years except on a scale of failure...not just marginal failure but abject, undeniable failures for which the bill has not yet arrived in totality. Stimulus was the leading edge and Obamacare will be the defining blow in terms of our financial withering as a nation. Obama is a fabrication of the liberal left run by the radicals of the 60's and the scheming socialist who have stood by in the shadows for years awaiting their time. Ayers and Soros are reveling in the dimantling of a nation which both sought to destroy in the own way. Neither of them ever dreamed that a large portion of the American people would willingly assist them in the process. Good write, Frog! ~WB
