There Is No Boogie Man

Updated on April 26, 2011

Some One Needs To Tell Obama That

Most adults realize that the boogie man doesn't live underneath their bed. As parents, occasionally, we might try to frighten our child into doing something by saying, "If you don't eat all your vegetables the boogie man is gonna getcha." That ploy doesn't work too well with most adults because we know which end is up. But notice I said "with most adults." Obama seems to still either believe in the boogie man, or he thinks he can use the boogie man to have people drink his elixir to ward off the meanies, or maybe he flat out is the boogie man.

But I have to admit that he does have a certain segment of the population convinced that there is indeed a boogie man usually hiding around every corner. At first he used the ploy in trying to convince people that if they didn't nod their heads and agree with his socialistic policies he was gonna sic the boogie man on us.

Remember the Stimulus Boogie Man? There was a holy terror! He sold it to his adoring masses as being the cure all for our economic problems and his henchmen passed the largest appropriations bill in this nation's history. Unemployment wouldn't ever rise above 8%, just trust him. Quick hide under the covers because the boogie man is coming if he wasn't allowed to pass a pork laden bill and create "saved" jobs. He, and snoozing Joe Biden, are still trying to convince us what a success it was as about a trillion dollars of our future generations tax dollars were flushed down the government toilet.. Government math still escapes me most of the time.

Then the Obamacare Boogie Man was conjured up. He stayed on that particular wagon selling snake oil for 18 months while unemployment skyrocketed (now there's a real boogie), he wasted trillions of our tax dollars pursuing phantoms and myths as things worsened rather than the American public seeing any improvement during his tenure as The Boogie Man-In-Chief. The economy was in dire straits if he wasn't allowed to take over 1/6th of the US economy.

Many people were hiding under their own beds during that period "hoping" for the nightmare to just go away. Even when it seemed like his grand scheme was going down in flames, he was still scheming with his fellow Democratic demons while at he same time telling the public that he was now going to focus on creating jobs. Remember that famous SOTUA? Don't ever believe what you hear. Watch what he does. They went behind closed doors and created one of the biggest boogie men that this nation has ever seen (2,700 + pages) then rammed it down ours throats. You see the Boogie Man-In-Chief and his band of leftwing nitwits knows far better what is good for us than we do. Not many of them knew what was in those pages, they just knew what was best for us whatever it said. But the latest poll I read has the majority of the population (60%) putting the hoodoo voodoo on Obamacare as being a bad idea. But Mommy! He Promised!

But alas! It seems that the American electorate is quite capable of creating our own boogie man. After two years, give or take a month or two, of his constant scare tactics we conjured up the November 2010 Boogie Man and turned it loose on his administration. He seemed humbled at first talking about how he took a shellacking and the spirit of cooperation and bipartisanship was about to blossom. He found boogie man religion it seemed. But watch what he does, not what he says. Bipartisan isn't a word the man seems to wrap his head around. After all, his demons still controlled the Senate.

His next demon up was excessive spending, something he is rather fond of. He got used to being the Spender-In-Chief, racking up deficits in two years that it took George Bush eight years to tally up. But the Boogie Man-In-Chief started creating fictitious demons for his adoring crowd. If we didn't "invest" (read - spend) more money again that we don't have then his agenda couldn't be accomplished. Boogie Man Ryan was created, him just being a simple accountant and all and not at all on par with a former community organizer from Chicago. Most Americans are of the mind that the spending needs to stop, severe budget cuts are now in order after his initial rampage on our economy and it needs to stop now and not later. Maybe he isn't listening or the shellac has worn off. Has it ever dawned on the guy that maybe we don't want his socialistic agenda to be in bed with us, much less underneath it?

Fast forward now to the Gas Price Boogie Man. Of course the problem couldn't possibly have anything to do with the Head Boogie Man and his policies or lack of them. The lack of drilling our own resources couldn't possibly be a factor? Imposing a drilling moratorium didn't contribute one iota huh? It is easily recognizable that any of his green agenda will take decades to even be feasible. So in the meantime, the American people are going to be held hostage at the gas pump while he tells us there is "no silver bullet." How much have gas prices gone up during his tenure so far? What does he attribute that to? I reckon he can blame Boogie Man Bush. Or was it the recent unrest in the Middle East?

Rather than address his own shortcomings (do we ever expect him to?) he now has created the Speculator Boogie Man. This despite the fact that his own Attorney General has stated that nothing illegal has been done that has caused the price of gas to spike. Don't you just love a good witch hunt? Speculation in the commodities market is the way that market runs. You're either betting something goes up or down. Nothing illegal about that - yet. His buddy, Boogie Man Soros, has made a fortune in the commodities market. What are the chances that the Boogie Man-In-Chief sics his new blue ribbon panel on Georgie boy, one of his main financiers? Slim to none and slim checked out and left town.

The bottom line is that he prefers to demonize those who know better than he does. He knows nothing about economics, self admittedly I might add, so it's easier to conjure up a boogie man that wants to kill Grandma or make her eat dog food. Or else create the Rich Fat Cat Boogie Man who is so selfish that they only paid about 70% of the income taxes just collected while 45% of the people paid nothing. And the list could go on and on with the Boogie Man-In-Chief pointing his bony finger at everyone, or anyone, but himself.

So now, having gotten you thinking about boogie men, maybe you can point out a few that I missed that he has created in just over two very, very long years. If not, go pull the covers over your head and keep believing your hope and change is just about to happen! The next boogie man will be turning the corner any time now!

Come 2012, we'll send Obama back underneath his bed to hide there until Michelle tells him it's alright to come out again. Space constraints keep me from sweeping all the boogie men out from under his bed so maybe you can help me out here?

Have a nice day.

      I think Obama IS the Boogie Man. Who knows what he does at nice. He probably is out terrorizing people to avoid having to defend his birth certificate issue!

      You may not whine, threaten, or call names. The problem is you don't do ANYTHING except complain.

      You are just deflecting when you nitpick about definitions of words. You know what I mean when I say something. Stop being so literal, and respond to the substance.

      proudlib - Stop whining. You got sucked in by a con man. Pick up your dignity, admit your mistake and don't make the same mistake twice.

      "But that he demonizes the rule of law, the DOI, the Constitution, affirmative duty, legal constructionism, free markets, and fiscal prudence are UNACCEPTABLE to anyone except the socialist moonbats who support him."

      You are once again seeing the trees instead of the forest. Forget about whether "demonize" is the right word according to Bill Buckley. My meaning is that Obama has no respect for the items mentioned.

      But that he demonizes the rule of law, the DOI, the Constitution, affirmative duty, legal constructionism, free markets, and fiscal prudence are UNACCEPTABLE to anyone except the socialist moonbats who support him.

      Explain how one can demonize these things.


      ? ?/?dim??na?z/ Show Spelled[dee-muh-nahyz] Show IPA

      –verb (used with object), -ized, -iz·ing.


      to turn into a demon or make demonlike.


      to subject to the influence of demons.

      Demonizing involves attacks of a personal nature that likens a person to a demon and accuses him/her promoting or committing evil. You cannot demonize a law, a document, or any of those things you list. I have never heard the President accuse anyone of being evil directly or by implication. His enemies on the other hand say this about him:

      "I particularly LOATH the photo of his nothingness swilling something which appears to be champagne but is probably some sort of potion he hopes will continue to make him look like a human - not the demon he truly is."

      "I'd hide under my bed from Obama too. He's one scary son of a gun."

      "this Boogie Man from Kenya!"

      "only the most biased observer could conclude that this man has even one ounce of redeeming features."







      ...and on and on and on...

      I'm with Stu your Royal Highness!! Up UP and AWAY on all buttons!! You NAILED it!

      I particularly LOATH the photo of his nothingness swilling something which appears to be champagne but is probably some sort of potion he hopes will continue to make him look like a human - not the demon he truly is.

      I have one of Ronald Reagan, looking like he was born in a tuxedo, holding out the glass toward the viewer and signed "To JJS, All the best- Ronald Reagan." Now THAT'S a keeper!!

      Best text on topic I've ever seen, bar none. And you nailed it; the shellac simply wore off.

      Or was sanded off by a couple of Boogie Men yet unnamed who were out of work and needed government jobs.

      Up and across the board.

      Obama is a demonizer. That he demonizes opposing ideologies I guess you can't fault him for, because people of every ideology do that.

      But that he demonizes the rule of law, the DOI, the Constitution, affirmative duty, legal constructionism, free markets, and fiscal prudence are UNACCEPTABLE to anyone except the socialist moonbats who support him.

      I know I am a voice crhying in the wilderness, but does anyone see the irony here? Accusing Obama of using boogey-men to scare us, and then calling Obama the boogie-man? Accusing him of demonizing others?

      Man alive, the mid boggles.

      I'd hide under my bed from Obama too. He's one scary son of a gun. Up and all the buttons too! Great piece. He'd never get anything done if he left his scare tactics at home.

      Good theme Froggy; this country has been dumbed down to such an extent we are back in the childhood BOOGIE MAN stage; how else can you account for the election of this Boogie Man from Kenya!

      Up and all buttons! Obama is so self-absorbed he will never take any personal responsibility for the immense harm he is causing to our legal system and national finances. There will always be a scapegoat. As you say, ignore what SAYS, and look at what he DOES. If one does this, only the most biased observer could conclude that this man has even one ounce of redeeming features.

      A great read Frog

      I for one had my days with the boogie man but

      the scariest was hearing a boogie women (Pelosi) make the statement "we must pass this Bill (Obamafarce) so we can read whats in it it" if thats not screwing the American people I guess that makes us all virgins.
