So How's that Hopey Changey Thing Workin Out For Ya?

Updated on February 4, 2012

U.N. September 2009

That Hopey Changey Thing - How's it going?

For me? It's not really working out so great, but thanks for asking...

We have a dictator Hugo Chavez who shuts down any media outlet in his country that dares to disagree with him --after his American bashing speech talks to reporters. In an interview with a Fox news correspondent he literally babbled on (through an interpreter) in a stream of consciousness rant about his obviously hatred for George W. Bush and how terrible Fox News is.

We have Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who fixes his “election” and SURPRISE is re-elected to great protest in his own country. First he attempts to shut down any and all media recording the massive protests that immediately ensued. Then when he thought the world wasn’t looking, killed his own people right in the streets of Iran. Why? Because the people of Iran knew the election was a fraud. This is the same world leader – and I use that term very, very loosely, who denies the Holocaust and has publicly, on more than one occasion, called for the annihilation of Israel and all Jews.

We have another dictator Moammar Kadafi from Libya. He’s the one with gorgeous female “body guards” and a housing problem. When his turn came to talk he spoke about jet lag, problems with pitching his tent and his adoration for President Obama. This arguably insane ruler of Libya for over 40 years wishes this current president could rule America forever.

My grandmother used to use that old adage, “When you lie down with dogs, you get fleas.”

For those still “drinking the Kool-aid” (President Obama was overheard saying that himself, about himself, after a campaign speech), the scales need to be removed from the eyes. A clear look at the significance of this U.N. debacle needs to be addressed.

These three world leaders – are evil. If anyone has any doubt about this, they aren’t very smart, or aren’t discerning in any way. There is a God and since God created the heavens and the earth, we also know that His Word is God’s truth. The Bible – both the Old and New Testament – tells us that there is evil. This evil is insidious in this world, We can not overcome it, deal with it or defeat it on our own. We need God. God is good.

So three evil, despicable, maniacal monsters adore Mr. Obama, but they hated Mr. Bush. Think about this long and hard. When light is shone on evil it hates it. When evil is defeated or weakened it hates the source and cause of the defeat. Why do these monstrous, evil, horrible men wax eloquent about their adoration for President Obama? Literally referring to Mr. Bush as “Satan” (holy cow, talk about the pot calling the kettle black…) and the sulfuric aroma he left behind when he left a room. Apparently, now the smell is far more pleasant according to these men.

Mr. Bush supported Israel. It would appear Mr. Obama might not be so supportive. Could this be one source for their abject worship?

My grandmother also used to say, “You are known by the company you keep.”

If someone of liberal bent wishes to assume because Mr. Obama is “playing nice,” the world is going to be a perfect place. Think again. Mr. Bush played hard-ball. Mr. Bush made these men hate us. You know something? I LIKED it when evil, deadly murderous, demonic creatures hated our President! How quickly the rabid, irrational Bush-haters forget that it was immediately after Saddam Hussein's defeat and capture that Kadfi asked for a “sit down” with President Bush. He hadn’t tried to be cooperative with any U.S. President in decades. No less making the first move himself. The North Korean dictator Kim Jon Il stopped his saber rattling for five minutes and a tentative détente’ was reached. Might was shown, evil cowered. The President said he’d do something, he did it. Something quite unusual these days. President Bush kept his WORD – and evil tucked tail.

How could our President, the one who is President of the United States today, NOT say something about the Israeli bashing? Granted he wasn't present for every speech, but he was for most of them. When he DID take the podium, how could he let the U.S. bashing go unchallenged? How could he have allowed any of these affronts to humanity say the things they said about Israel and the Jews without saying one word against such disgusting behavior? Was it because they said such nice things about him personally? Does Mr. Obama realize that he REPRESENTS the United States of America and that when they bash our country, he SHOULD take offense?

I am so, so sorry to say this. It grieves me to have to, but Mr. Obama is not my President, not after his performance during this last U.N. meeting. There are numerous other reasons, but this is the first time I’m ever writing it or saying it. Why didn’t he say the same things Binyamin Netanyahu said during his SANE and important speech? Why did it appear that Prime Minister Netanyahu stood, for all intents and purposes, alone? How could Mr. Obama allow this to happen?

Appeasement doesn’t work.

Perhaps the liberal radicals and the left believe that this “playing nice” means the world is safe. "Looky! They like us, they really, really like us!" Again, I urge a cease and desist of Kool-aid drinking. And while you're at it, take those pretty rose colored glasses off too. Just this past week, the F.B.I. caught numerous terrorists – throughout the country – attempting to blow up only they know what. We don’t know what their plans were because although a few were caught, they ain’t talkin’. What we do know is, they were scattered and there are probably more around the U.S. plotting similar activities. How comforting to know the President is popular with demonic apparitions. I feel so much safer now...

I still pray for Mr. Obama and his family and especially pray for their safety as well as pray for this administration. I pray that the scales will fall from Mr. Obama’s eyes someday very soon and he will see the light and discontinue his destruction of this country’s strength, wealth and resources and that he'll stop ignoring the Constitution too. I pray he will wake up and realize he’s got fleas -- before it's too late.

      Stunnercold -- You're kidding right? We went to war to secure the oil in Afghanistan? How much oil are we getting from there? How much oil are we getting from Iraq? Iraq owns their own oil - you are truly blind and drinking the Kool-aid of the cult of the left. Show me where we have increased our intake of oil from Iraq and Afghanistan. Oh yeah - all that oil in Afghanistan - yup - loads of it we started a war to steal it. You're absolutely looney not to mention totally uninformed if you honestly believe that. And if you truly wish to become enlightened, at its worst, the unemployment was around 5.5% when W left office. That has doubled since Mr. Obama implemented these billion dollar bail outs that he PROMISED would NEVER bring us above 8% unemployment. Remember that? If he's such a genius, and it is as you say, all Bush's fault - then why couldn't he see - in his genius mind - that no matter what he did - it would still be Bush's fault two years after he implemented all of his programs and our deficit would be tripled?? And our unemployment would be doubled with no end in sight? Get a grip. You show your inability to think with silly and parroted comments like you've just given. Holy cow! At least most of America is wising up! Do me a favor - stay home in 2012, we don't need someone so ignorant voting

      Aren't you forgetting that America elected Bush, twice for that matter. That retarded bull went on war with 2 countries just to secure oil wealth for america and brain washed his gullible constituents in to believing that it was a war for democracy! The national economy is in the gutters and atleast there's a guy try to minimize the fallout from the last 8 years. As for Chavez, he might be a dictator and what not but Venezuela isn't facing the problems of unemployment and bankrupt citizens, they've got OIL, silly.

      Impeach Obama 

      10 years ago

      I'm so happy you wrote this Hub, it saves me the time of doing it myself! This El Presedente will be the downfall of Liberty if the American people continue to refuse to face the facts instead of the reality of his hatred for a free society.

      You made an amazing point!

      Those against having Obama impeached say that it isn't his fault because he just took on the role of Bush and was left with the mess that Bush created.

      However the point is clear as a bell. They hated Bush but love Obama. Excellent point. I hope others see this as well.

      It is becoming more and more clearer now, I think President Barack Obama is the great deceiver. "No, it's not in that hand it is in the other." "I am just like Ronald Reagan."

      CNN Claims Obama The New Ronald Reagan, Assigns 'Morning in ...

      "I am just like Lincoln."

      The Obama campaign has made the hay out of the Lincoln legacy, from making his announcement speech on the steps of the Old Illinois State Capitol in ...

      I think President Jimmy Carter is happy that Barack Obama came along when he did so he could get some rest. For no one wants the title of being the worst.

      I have to say that I agree with you all the way, except Obama is my President, whether I like it or not—and I don't. God Bless Netanyahu. Now there's a man.

      Your main premise is outstanding. If the most evil men in the world sing your praises, that would be telling to all but the most utter of fools. And I'm afraid our country has gradually become loaded with them in the past 40 years.

      Thank you for a great read, well written, that I enjoyed thoroughly.

      It does not matter that it was not US soil, but "international territory". Crime speech is a crime speech and should be condemned by humanity. Especially on "international territory"! Or otherwise we'll again have to quote A poem by Pastor Martin Niemoller, Berlin, 1939 (from another cjv's great hub)-

      First they came for the Jews

      and I did not speak out--

      because I was not a Jew.

      Then they came for the communists

      and I did not speak out--

      because I was not a communist.

      Then they came for the trade unionists

      and I did not speak out--

      because I was not a trade unionist.

      Then they came for me--

      and there was no one left to speak out for me.

      There are things that are universal. If we are good to our enemies, it should ring the BELL! A President should stay for his country on the first place!

      I have a deep respect for Binyamin Netanyahu. Even in spite that he has enough criticism, he is the right man for Israel! When he was in power first time, there was NO suicide attacks! They knew better!

      Glad to share my thoughts, anytime my dear and if we only talk to those with whom we agree on everything, live would be very dull and boring -- 'cause we'd never talk about anything.

      Not to push an argument, definitely not my motive but I thought you might want to consider a couple of facts I actually took the time to research, seeing as I was pretty sure I wasn't as misinformed as your suggested.

      So, just for infos sake (leaving the health care issue behind for the moment -- and I still think the U.S. should adopt our quaint custom of the Reforendum, because that is truly democracy at work) back to the U.N. for a second.

      Regarding some U.N. facts:

      “Though it is in New York City, the land occupied by the United Nations Headquarters is considered international territory, and its borders are First Avenue on the west, East 42nd Street to the south, East 48th Street on the north and the East River to the east.[3] However, according to the Agreement Between the United States and the United Nations Regarding the Headquarters of the United Nations, Pub. L. No. 80-357, 61 Stat. 756 (1947):”

      Therefore, this conference was not held on American Soil, nor was it hosted by the U.S.

      Furthermore, no leader of any country, nor any other U.N. delegate may interfere with any formal address to the assembly – according to the Rules of Procedure of the United Nations Assembly.

      Lastly, there is no such thing as the “leader of the free world.” (I thought we dealt with this one.)

      For whatever it's worth, I agree with you on many issues, one of which is this: it would be rash and wrong of any govt. to shove unwanted legislation down the throats of it's populace. But what is the real desire of the American people? -- I mean the majority opinion, not each individual. That's what I'd like to know. Each side claims to have that. I think that really should be step one -- find out the majority view.

      Awesome, something we can agree on! But you know what? My beef isn't with the citizens anyway - whether they agree or disagee. My beef is with an administration that is trying to ram down the collective throats of the American peeps a socialized take-over of our entire medical system. I totally agree that the PEOPLE should vote on it - but that's not going to happen. Something else that isn't going to happen is I would make it an OATH that any Rep. or Senator etc. MUST take - before they pass any bill THEY MUST READ IT and when they sign anything into law, their signature will also be a sworn statement that they have read THE ENTIRE BILL.

      As I understand it though, as of yesterday in the Wall Street Journal - the Democrats stopped short attempts by Republicans to take time to READ THE DANGED HEALTH CARE bill being proposed. So it's going to be rammed through - if Mr. Obama and his administration have their way. In a sense, I kinda hope they do the "nuclear" option. I think that would cause such an uprising in this country that they'd all be voted out and we could start from scratch. But I suppose I'm only dreaming...

      Thanks for your thoughts. I may not agree with you on all of it - but I respect your taking the time to tell me your thoughts.

      I love it when people are challenged and stand up for their beliefs. That's how we see what they are really feeling and thinking. I for one, would never object and feel no animosity to anyone who disagrees and corrects me as to my misinformed ways. Keep up the good work, as shall I.

      I certainly don't think my logic could be taken to the extreme of suggesting Lincoln should not have stood up for his beliefs. I just wonder, if we all did as much listening as we do talking, things might run a little more smoothly.

      I think such divisive questions like health care should be taken to the people, don't you? This side says their poll shows they have the popular vote and the other side claims the same thing.

      Why not hold a reforandum on it? Or can you do that there? On such questions, the voters go to the polls and vote on the issue. That way, no one can say the people were not heard. And the government is bound to abide by the result. Personally, I think that would be best, don't you?

      Oh, by the way -- I too stand up for the defenseless and I don't believe in late term abortion, at all.

      Actually, it's not my choice at all I'm afraid Immartin - oh that it WERE my choice - Mr. Obama would be impeached.

      1. Mr. Obama had an obligation to speak out against anyone in a world theater uttering the words that the Iranian leader did about Israel and the Jews. He attended the summit, he's the leader of the free world - it was cowardice at best to NOT speak out - and implies AGREEMENT.

      2. The meeting was on U.S. soil - Mr. Obama is the HOST - he SHOULD have spoken out at least against that. So I'm afraid I totally and utterly disagree with you. To even give a U.S. stage to these loons is a crime against humanity in and of itself no less let them bash the U.S. and Israel while they are GUESTS here without a word from the President.

      3. Regarding the destruction of our wealth - while it was not in good shape prior to Mr. Obama - you are factually incorrect if you don't know that Mr. Obama has added trillions and trillions to our national debt,more than any other president before him by at least three times - and as we write these things - is planning to spend more trillions of money the U.S. doesn't have and print paper money that is worthless. All the while jacking up debt that can destroy this country. The free market would have eventually righted itself but his out of control spending is only going to make things get worse as he also tries to turn our country into a Social Welfare state.

      4. I'm not exactly sure what your boarders argument has to do with this discussion - the fact is - we hosted the U.N. Assembly. Boarder Control is another issue. "Policing the world" is also another issue. The discussion here centers around the U.N. meeting and the weakness our President showed in not standing up to leaders he should have stood against.

      5. Lastly - Mr. Obama is NOT my President - I didn't vote for him and I can only hope the people vote him out and stop him from being elected to a second term. This man not only has blood on his hands from countless unborn babies (His pro-abortion at any cost politics) - but he also prevented legislation that would compel a hospital/doctor/clinic to give medical attention to a child born alive from botched abortions. Instead - in Mr. Obama's homestate - he blocked any attempts to make laws that would legally protect these infants - left to die like garbage. He's not only a pre-born baby killer, but he happily promotes infanticide - and from his picks of his Czars - he promotes racism, and the acts of pedophiles along with child prostitution and child slavery (ACORN - which he is intimately involved in) among many other repugnant things.

      Like abused animals, I stand up for the helpless unlike Mr. Obama who just likes them killed and to die slowly when they are killed.

      Divided we fall? I guess coming from the North originally I see it as - we were a divided nation during the Civil War, fighting for the rights of blacks to be free. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that ALL men are created equal." If we were to follow your logic, Abraham Lincoln shouldn't have "divided" the country for the greater good.

      If there is division - Hubber Jibberish said said in her comment here that sadly had to be removed because I duplicated the Hub - - Mr. Obama -- although elected by the people and FOR the people won't listen to anyone unless they agree with him. He's the divider - it's not up to me - it's up to Mr. Obama to represent ALL of the people - not just his cronies and special interest groups and those who agree with him. He took and oath to represent ALL Americans. Let's see if he can do it. I WELCOME him to try to at least represent the majority!

      Hi there CJV123. Don't know quite where to start. Sometimes an intelligent person knows it's best to sit quietly and not speak one's mind. Out of generosity, let's assume this was President Obama's reasons for not adding to the insanity of this meeting. It's clearer everyday the world is nothing more than a large lunatic asylum, filled with ranting idiots. Certainly, no leader anywhere is responsible for the words, actions and stated opinions of another country's leader, no matter how unfortunate the methods of bringing that leader into power.

      Secondly, President Obama is not destroying the wealth and strength of America. That has long been fiddled away. Look around you -- look at what's happened over the past two or three decades. It's gone. All any leader of any society can do is try and figure out what's best to do in the situation he happens to find. Why do we insist on blaming government for things beyond it's control?

      Lastly, with all that is happening withing the borders of the U.S., surely it is time to stop pretending the rest of the world is America's responsibility and to start taking care of the American people. Charity, like all good things, starts at home.

      Whether you like your president or not, he is there and if anything is to be accomplished during this term, and God help America if it does not, your president needs the support of the people.

      Divide and conquer -- that's what I see happening in the U.S. Let's keep the populace busy with divisive and destructive rhetoric. That way they will remain powerless, grow more angry and nothing, but nothing will get done.

      Your choice.
