Posted ImageThree significant historical events have been eclipsed by Obama: 1) Jimmy Carter will no longer be looked upon as the worst president in American history; 2) Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton will no longer be recognized as the greatest liars in presidential history; 3) Clinton’s stain on Monica’s dress, and what that did to the White House in general and the office of the president specifically, will forever pale in comparison to the stain and stench of Obama.
I need not spend much time on the failure of Obama as president. His tenure has been a failure on every measurable level. So much so, in fact, that some of the staunchest, most respected liberal Democrats and Democratic supporters have not only openly criticized him – some even more harshly than this essayist – but they have called for him to step down.
Richard Nixon’s words “I am not a crook,” punctuated with his involvement in Watergate, and Bill Clinton’s finger-wagging as he told one of the most pathetic lies in presidential history, in the aftermath of Obama, will be viewed as mere prevarications.
Mr. Nixon and Clinton lied to save their backsides. Although, I would argue there are no plausible explanations for doing what they did, I could entertain arguments pursuant to understanding their rationales for lying. But in the case of Obama, he lies because he is a liar. He doesn’t only lie to cover his misdeeds – he lies to get his way. He lies to belittle others and to make himself look presentable at their expense. He lies about his faith, his associations, his mother, his father and his wife. He lies and bullies to keep his background secret. His lying is congenital and compounded by socio-psychological factors of his life.
Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood.
As the stock markets were crashing, taking with them the remaining life saving of untold tens of thousands, Obama was hosting his own birthday celebration, which was an event of epicurean splendidness. The shamelessness of the event was that it was not a state dinner to welcome foreign dignitaries, nor was it to honor an American accomplishment – it was to honor the Pharaoh, Barack Hussein Obama. The event’s sole purpose was for the Pharaoh to have his loyal subjects swill wine, indulge in gluttony and behavior unfit to take place on the property of taxpayers, as they suffer. It was of a magnitude comparable to that of Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski’s $2 million birthday extravaganza for its pure lack of respect for the people.
Permit me to digress momentarily. The U.S. Capitol and the White House were built with the intent of bringing awe and respect to America and her people. They were also built with the intent of being the greatest of equalizers. I can tell you, having personally been to both, there is a moment of awe and humility associated with being in the presence of the history of those buildings. They are to be honored and inscribed into our national psyche, not treated as a Saturday night house party at Chicago’s Cabrini-Green.
The people of America own that home Obama and his wife continue to debase with their pan-ghetto behavior. It is clear that Obama and family view themselves as royalty, but they’re not. They are employees of “we the people,” who are suffering because of his failed policies. What message does this behavior send to those who today are suffering as never before?
What message does it send to all Americans who are struggling? Has anyone stopped to think what the stock market downturn forebodes for those 80 million baby boomers who will be retiring in the next period of years? Is there a snowball’s chance in the Sahara that every news program on the air would applaud this behavior if it were George W. Bush? To that point, do you remember the media thrashing Bush took for having a barbecue at the White House?
Like Nero – who was only slightly less debaucherous than Caligula – with wine on his lips Obama treated “we the people” the way Caligula treated those over whom he lorded.
Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.

Anyone else think it's weird when a guy always calls himself "a black conservative?" I mean, I know a lot of black people that are conservative in addition to ones that are liberal, but I never met a guy that has to inform people that he is black in addition to being conservative.

That comes from black conservatives wanting so badly to gain the respect of their white peers that they have this penchant to openly and verbally declare what they are.Tokenism at it's worst.

Its because black conservatives are derided for not towing the liberal line. And the #'s are growing. BTW- neither of you commented on His Comments.

Stupid is as stupid does. You chose to not allow another opinion outside your world view. That is myopic and short sighted. I read a number of newspapers daily and routinely watch MSNBC and CNN to see what the liberals are discussing. Its the only way to truely be informed, and thats to gather your information from a number of places. Carry on.

Resorting to names and insults because I don't read your cherry-picked biased articles? Not new for you, but consistent, nevertheless. I know what black conservatives are and what they believe in. I don't agree with their views of political-economic life relevant to the plight of the black poor is the negative role of the state and the positive role of the market.

I must have missed the Name calling.....You don't know conservative black economic policy's because you don't care to read abt them. If so, you'd at least take a moment to discuss their points. I've posted many Thomas Sewells articles and he is a fantastic source. The plight of poor blacks is like the plight of whites. THEY ALL WANT AN OPPORTUNITY or if they don't, then they're not my responsibility to prop up. Give people Real goals, education and stop the pandering to their Victimhood and you'll get them standing tall.

I read it.... A bunch of subjective claims with nothing to back them up. you learn in middle school that when you write a paper, you make your main point thenback it up with evidence.

I said I wasn't going discuss politics and Im not. but

1. Wonder why you felt the need to post the guys pic? HMMMM.

2. And most importantly The fact that you felt the need to point out who Nero was means you yourself did not know and no doubt had to look it up after reading the opinion piece, proving yourself to be the imbecile you are thought to be.

Clearly diesel thinks this is how all black conservatives talk.As if it matters that they are conservative.

Why would a conservative vote for Mitt anymore than they would for Obama?

Has the U.S. ever had a black swimmer at the U.S. Olympics? Honestly I don't keep up with Olympic swimming, even when it's going on, but it'd be awesome if they kept calling him "John Q: the Black Swimmer."

I also like that he relates Obama specifically to Nero. We've had so many one-letter-off jokes in relation to Obama, clearly we needed a black guy to make that one.

I think I may know a little something about black conservative economic policy since I used to be one.

Again, there you go again assuming you know people who you've never met as to what they are, what they know, what they don't know or what's best for them. It's always hilarious when you attempt to tell people how they should live their lives, especially when you don't have your own house in order.

Black Americans reject black conservatives not because blacks always see themselves as "victims", not because they are tricked by liberal black mouthpieces or because blacks blindly worship the Democrats, its because a huge percentage of Black Americans have a huge disstain towards black conservatives' "step-and-fetchit" approach, especially when they run their mouths to conservative media types, portraying themselves as victims, as courageous, embattled critics of a black liberal establishment (see Herman Cain on Rush Limbaugh show, which I used to listen to regularly).

Now, as much as white conservatives say about Blacks who vote Dem are still "on the plantation", I would contend that black conservatives are the consummate "house Negros", living in the house, praying for the day to be like "massa" and to join him at his table, if not as an equal then maybe they can to do it monetarily. That was a huge turnoff for me, which is why I became a Moderate. I still hold that some aspects of black liberalism indeed are outdated and sometimes inadequate, but black conservatism as a whole is unacceptable to me.

So, don't propose to call anyone myopic or stupid just because you trot out your token black conservative with your little cut-and-paste notion of politics.
