He said he was not a socialist yet everything he has done in regard to domestic affairs has dramatically risen(sic) our level of debt, increased government control over every aspect of our lives and slammed the private sector. That is socialism.
He promised the "most transparent administration in history" yet everything is done in backroom deals, requests for documentation are dismissed or ignored and you can't get a straight answer out of anyone in his administration. Fog is more transparent than Obama.
He sold himself as the great uniter on matters of race yet he's proven to be nothing more than a race-baiting bigot himself. He calls a white police officer's actions stupid on national TV while admitting he knows nothing about the case yet he refuses to prosecute Black Panthers who are caught on film violating people's civil rights. He sends he wife to speak at the NAACP, an organization that's sole purpose is to promote one race and who calls the Tea party movement "racist" without any proof whatsoever. He is willing to falsely accuse Arizona of passing a racist immigration bill just to garner Hispanic votes in November when the bill specifically prohibits racial profiling and virtually mirrors federal law that he will not enforce. Obama is every bit the uniter as was George Wallace who, by way, was another Democrat.
Extra points for the Wallace reference: "I'm not racist, Wallace was. But I hate a black president as much as Wallace would have!"
I'm not going to bother to fisk the points the write presents. Anyone who reads here regularly will see through the idiocy & hypocrisy without my help.
My sole point is that the OCRegister has this at the top of their "Letters to the Editor" section with no comment, so they must feel this represents what their readers believe. I can't figure out who is more empty-headed, the Editors, or the letter writer. I'm surprised they're smart enough to breath regularly.
Faith is a great thing sometimes. In a relationship it's key. For religion it's pretty mandatory. But for a reality-based world view, it's really not appropriate. That's not faith, that's being a sucker. Believe in reality, not in dogma or ideology.
A nice cover of the great Tim Hardin song:
