When Obama Took His Oath to Serve

Updated on August 31, 2012

When Obama Took His Oath to Serve

When he took the stage and pledged the oath
To protect our land and help its growth
We did not feel it when it occurred
When he tore our toenail on the curb

How were we to know he lied?
Or the hidden agendas he contrived
Yet he blames those that came before
And peals back the toenail a little more

When America stood in economic strife
He spent the futures of our children’s lives
His family enjoyed trips abroad
While we salved to keep our piece of sod

He hates everything for which this country stands
Her beauty and grace throughout this land
Insulting our friends and allies abroad
While the media praised and gave him laud

He helped those who got him where he is
With back room deals and pay outs he gives
He gave us a healthcare plan in disguise
That improved his friends and collogues lives

I pledged to serve and give my life
To protect America and our way of life
But this man made another pledge
To tear this country down instead

It’s not the color of his skin
Nor his birthplace or where he’s been
It’s not his socialistic dreams
But more his father’s so it seems

And if he gets another term
The truth will force us all to learn
But it will be too late for us my friend
As the hangnail throbs in every man

SA Lawrence

      I want to make a statement for the record. I do not like Romney, or many of the issues he stands for, but I have seen what Obama stands for and I find him a canker sore on America. Obama is an Attorney and therefore a professional liar. Lawyers either lie to protect their clients or lie to protect themselves. Obama has lied about his birth and hidden his personal history from the American people. He has done nothing except fail to keep his pre-election promises of 2008. Yet he asks us to trust him. Romney at least is a business man and therefore understands how to balance a ledger and produce profit.

      I remember when the Senate and House refused to allow the debt ceiling to be raised and Obama didn’t get his way. Obama threatened to withhold pay for Social Security, Federal, and Military Retirees , along with Social Security Disability.

      He did not threaten to stop payments to illegal aliens, or take frivolous benefits such as Internet access away from violent inmates. He did not offer to fire some of the thousands of unnecessary federal employees that he hired, or to cut down on his or his wife's frivolous gallivanting. He did not threaten to stop the salaries of senators; representatives or any of their staff. He did not threaten to take benefits away from welfare recipients or food stamp programs, or even foreign aid. He did not threaten to cut back on anything that involves his base voters, and now he is in full election mode.

      When a person visits a ranch or dairy farm the smell of manure can be quite offensive to them. However Cattle ranchers and dairy workers, after working so long around the pungent odor, become desensitized to it. In much the same way, Americans have been subjected to the Oral defecation coming from Washington DC, that like the ranchers and dairy workers, we have become used to it. We are Americans and they work for us. It’s time to demand better and expect more for our tax dollars.

      If we have an employee that does not perform his assigned duties, he is dismissed. It’s time we take note that the people we hired to run our country, believe they are above the law, so therefore can do as they please and we will let them. Perhaps it’s time we elect a businessman and not a lawyer, and put the rest in Washington on notice.

      As a followup, Obama has already place the United States under martial Law:

      our freedom is already being stripped way.

      Firstly Junko, please use spell check when posting comments, use reasonably good grammar and proof read before submitting. Secondly please use the intelligence God gave you and quit “Bush-Bashing” Perhaps 9-11 meant nothing to you and you support Al-Qaeda and the atrocities imposed on the defenseless people in the Middle East. Liberals want their freedom and protection by conservatives, and the military their tax dollars provide. Thanks for posting all the good things Obama has done for this country; I see the list was long! Conservatives in congress moved the money not Obama. Like the taking of Osama Bin Laden, Obama was on another vacation and never knew anything about it until it was over. Why do you think there are two separate videos with Obama watching it happen “Live” One in the oval office and one in the Senate Committee room’

      I remember when Katrina hit New Orleans and Mississippi, Bush sent in two hundred Charter Busses to get the people out. But the Governor of Louisiana refused the help because he didn’t want the Federal agencies taking over. The Media yelled that it was all Bush’s fault. I bet you hate guns too; but if someone is breaking into your home you want an armed policeman to come rescue you. Floridians are used to storms….if it looks bad, we get out; we don’t wait for the government to tell us too! The real question is, are you proud to be an American or do you think Obama is your savior….the facts in the link are real. You evidently hate the “Tea Party” and the “Conservatives” you say “I don't need anybody to tell me what to think” yet your comments come right off ABC news. It is better to have others think someone a fool then post it on-line and remove all doubt

      must65gt, the previous Administration spent billions monthly on tw0 undeclared wars for over 80 months. They also spent billions on drug programs and medicare advantage programs that benefitted health insurance and drug companies more than senior citizens. One of many good thing the President did that has been mixed with the Republican hogwash is to take over 700 billions dollars out of the medicare advantage programs, which was full of fraud, and redistribute the funds in a regulated way. Regulations is a hated word for those who intent corruption on the people and the government. Iam not narrow minded, and I'm not swayed by polls or links. I have not been sleep for the last 12 years and I have an independent opinion. I don't need anybody to tell me what to think. Thank you, for the dialog and the freedom to speak.

      I know hogwash when I hear it. Hogwash cannot disguise hate.

      Great hub and you are spot on. Voted up, useful, beautiful, interesting and shared. The problem with Obama, his supporters and liberal Democrats in general is they see through 'rose covered glasses' and like they've come to believe, it's much easier to blame and overlook problems they've caused than see the truth. Neither our president nor the majority of his following ever served a day in the military and don't know what love of country or discipline is. An oath or obligation means nothing to the arrogant and foolish. 'Come on November 6th', so we as a nation can replace this wicked ideology that is ruining our nation...

      Obama did make a pledge when he took his oath of office. He has insulted our allies and reduced the military that protects this country. Perhaps before you start blaming the "Tea Party" of which I have no faith in either, you should research the man now leading our country. Education is there, the question is will you use it. Obama hates America and everything "We" meaning this great Bi-partisan Nation, stands for.

      Review this and then make a comment. It has nothing to do with party affiliation or any of the multitude of diversions set in place to take our minds off the real problem.

      It is better to be divided by Truth than united in error;

      It is better to speak Truth that hurts but heals than to speak a lie;

      It is better to be hated for telling the Truth than loved for telling a lie;

      It is better to stand alone in Truth than wrong with the multitude.

      Obama made no pledge, but Teaparty Republicans did pledge to Grover. They pledged to defund the Obama's Presidency by never voting for taxes ,which everybody knows is the Governments only source of income. The pledge was to make Obama a one term president by any means, even if it hurt 23,000.000 American citizens in the process. I'm surprized that some people hate the President so much that they can be convinced the Government and not the Teapartyrepublicans is the problem.
