September 15: On Being a Crook

 September 30, 2012

I recently read a biography on George Washington, our first President.  The author described that Washington demanded “self-sacrifice from his aides, who had to follow his schedule uncomplainingly.”  They slept in open air before a battle, gave up soft beds and forwent habits of ease and indulgence that included the hard floor of the fields, early rising, and almost perpetual duty.  Washington’s choices for his family (including Martha) and military were permeated by an ethos that one could never square with an entitlement attitude.  On reading this account, I couldn’t help but think of Barack Hussein Obama (BHO), a person who has never worked an honest day in his life.

Never worked an honest day in his life?  Could this be true?  Here’s his record (from my BHO files):

 A no-show community organizer;

a no-show state senator;

a no-show senator; and

a part-time President.

A community organizer!  Anyone in the reading audience ever deal with civil servants?  Can you imagine what that job entailed?  The recent riots in Chicago tell the whole story about BHO’s accomplishments despite massive federal funding.

The author and many of his colleagues have extensive experience dealing with civil servants like BHO.  We all essentially have the same assessment.  They are complainers, indifferent, and continuously claim that they are underappreciated, overworked and underpaid.  But the one word that is used repeatedly to describe nearly all of them is LAZY.  They’re LAZY, just like BHO.

Need more proof about civil servants?  Those in the New York metropolitan area are all too familiar with Off-Track Betting (OTB) failures THAT WERE INITIATED BY Hazel Dukes during the Dinkins regime.  Imagine that a bookmaker couldn’t make money; thankfully for the taxpayers, Mayor Bloomberg shut them down.  And then there’s the Motor Vehicle Bureau at the state level and the Post Office at the national level.  And don’t forget the majority of teachers who are slowly but surely destroying our education system.

Here are a dozen notes from my LAZY file on BHO:

  1.  BHO has broken the record for vacation days for a President.  The Last Lady?  She’s even worse.  No self-respecting CEO would take as many vacation days as he does.  And how about both of them once flying in separate planes to the same destination at approximately the same time.
  2. Golf?  He’s broken that record too, including that of President Eisenhower.
  3. As noted by author Ed Klein (“The Amateur”), BHO simply doesn’t have enough time to meet with not only senators, congressmen, governors, the common folk, etc., but also with his staff.  He’s simply too busy.
  4. Anybody believe BHO wrote the book “Memories from My Father”?  Besides being LAZY, he’s also not capable.  I know…I’ve written nearly 100 books.  He doesn’t have what it takes to write a book since it is virtually impossible for a LAZY person to write a book.
  5. Most LAZY individuals have received lousy grades in school.  Every attempt to obtain his grades and performance during his earlier years has been rebuffed.  I wonder why?  Think about that.
  6. BHO is campaigning nearly all of the time.  He seems to love it – perhaps due to the fact (as detailed earlier) that he never stops lying.  Lying about the economy.  Lying about Israel.  Lying about President Bush.  Lying about the impact of his healthcare bill.  Lying about the cost of healthcare.  Lying about the state of the nation.  Lying about his book.  Lying about Fast-and-Furious.  Lying about the leaks of classified material.  Lying about transparency.  Lying about the jobs he saved.  Lying about Reverend Wright and, more recently, lying about his failed foreign policy.  Lying.  Lying.  Just lying.  It’s easier that way with a LAZY individual.  As I said earlier, it’s a way of life with BHO.
  7. BHO claims to have saved jobs.  BHO claims to have created jobs.  BHO promised to eliminate waste in government.  But, how can BHO claim the aforementioned when he is basically LAZY and never worked at a legitimate job before becoming a part-time President whose only assignment has been to read the teleprompter and continue to con the public?
  8. BHO has repeatedly appeared dumb because he was too LAZY to do his homework.  He criticized an Arizona Law that he admitted he had never read.  The same can be said about the Trevon Martin and Boston policeman/professor confrontation.  Could he be that LAZY (and perhaps dumb) not to get the facts first?
  9. BHO pushed hard for his healthcare bill despite the FACT that he had not read it.  No one could possibly believe that BHO would read a bill with its length and complexity.  Another FACT was that the bill was concealed from the public; so much for transparency.
  10. BHO and the Last Lady travel and vacation in style, being too LAZY to do otherwise.
  11. Finally, do the readers remember the concern raised about how a President would handle a “3:00 AM call in the morning.”  BHO had an opportunity to demonstrate quick-decision ability when he took 3 months (!!!) to decide on what action to take on increasing troop involvement.
  12. BHO finally (last month) held a press conference.  Could the explanation be that he is LAZY or unwilling to face his failures, i.e., the economy, the deficit, the energy dilemma, the immigration dilemma, Fast-and-Furious, White House leaks, his on-the-job attendance record, etc.?  And then, there is his foreign policy…a policy that has further polarized the world and moved us closer to a war, perhaps one of a nuclear nature.

Webster defines LAZY as:  “slack, not eager or willing to work or extend oneself; indolent; slothful.”  Whaddyathink?  Is he like most of you in the reading audience, or is he just plain LAZY?

ON BEING A CROOK

September 15, 2012

The following articles on Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) appeared earlier:

 June 15:          On Being Dumb

June 30:          On Being a Liar

July 15:           On Being a Racist

July 31:           On Being Nasty and Arrogant

August 15:       On Being a Socialist/Communist

August 31:       On Being an Egomaniac

September 15, 2012

This was a tough one.  I couldn’t decide whether to title this article “On Being a Fraud” or “On Being a Crook.”  After much soul-searching and a quick check of Webster’s dictionary, the latter choice was selected since a crook is a more all-encompassing term.  Here’s Webster’s definition of a crook:

“…someone who has committed a crime…a person, who steals, cheats or is dishonest…”

As a lead-in to this article, I once again turned to Greek mythology and referred to the God Hermes.  He is the one God who practiced deceit and thievery almost from the moment of his birth.  There are some clear-cut analogies between Hermes and Barack Hussein Obama (BHO).

It is usually inappropriate and politically incorrect to call and refer to the President as a crook since the presidency is a powerful office that commands respect, due in part to President Washington.  He set a host of precedents in a wide variety of areas, including executive privilege that has endured because of his honesty and integrity.  In fact, unlike BHO, President Washington refused to favor friends, fellow party members, relatives, etc., in any financial matters or appointments.  But, unfortunately, this “favoring” policy aptly describes BHO.  And, since this is an election year, there is no reason why an individual like me, who loves his country, should not put all the cards on the table.

I’ve already proven, beyond a reasonable doubt, that BHO is a liar.  The question is:  do lies fit into the category of a crook?  I think it does.  And the reason I bring it up is the Hollywood theatrics that took place at the Democratic National Convention last week.  Reality was nowhere to be found while lies were the order of the day.  The convention was infested with individuals who just told us one lie after the other.  All most of them did was lie.  At the top of the list was the Last Lady who had an epiphany of suddenly loving our country … now that her partner is President.  For me, these two now join Bill and Hillary in my Thoroughly Rotten Individuals Club.

My BHO “crook” file provided the material below.  Note that I chose to include BHO’s lies and fabrications as well as his associations and relationships with individuals/organizations that would fit in this “crook” category.

BHO:     “…my home teams.”

FACT:   There is nothing wrong with rooting for the Bears, Bulls, Black Hawks, etc., but let us not forget that he is a product of the most corrupt political system in the U.S.  And, let us not forget that BHO brought many of the key players of the Chicago Democratic machine to Washington to supposedly help clean up the corruption.  No doubt this is why BHO’s administration experienced numerous turnovers and has been repeatedly accused of improper, illegal and corrupt conduct.  Bottom line:  Yes, BHO is a CROOK…but he isn’t the only one.

BHO:     Assured the American people of “transparency.”

FACT:   Check the proposed second stimulus bill.

BHO:     Assured the American people of “transparency.”

FACT:   Check the first stimulus bill.

BHO:     Assured the American people of “transparency.”

FACT:   Check his healthcare reform bill.

BHO:     Promised “tort reform.”

FACT:   Perhaps I missed it but I have nothing on tort reform.

BHO:     Promised to “eliminate lobbyists.”

FACT:   He had 11 on the government payroll at one time.

BHO:     Has successfully bribed American with “entitlements.”

FACT:   It will be very difficult to reverse these handouts.  There are 47 million (and counting) Americans on food stamps.  Don’t be surprised when the recipients start taking to the streets, ala Greece, Spain, Portugal, etc., for more giveaways.

BHO:     On “executive privilege.”

FACT:   BHO has set a list of negative precedents, unlike (as noted above) the high quality and honesty of most of President Washington’s earlier decisions.

BHO:     “No favors.”

FACT:   He has lowered the standard for future presidents.  I just finished a biography on George Washington.  As noted above, he absolutely refused to favor friends, associates or relations in making presidential appointments.  Most of BHO’s appointees are borderline crooks.

BHO:     Essentially refuses to comment on “ACORN,” an organization cited on numerous occasions for financial irregularities and voter registration fraud.

FACT:   He has essentially refused to discuss ACORN; apparently, it is off limits.

BHO:     “ACORN”

FACT:   He earlier served as an ACORN attorney.

BHO:     On Tony Rezko, “a friend.  Just a guy in the neighborhood.”

FACT:   A convicted felon.  BHO was apparently the recipient of a questionable sweetheart deal from Rezko.

BHO:     “I only saw Ron Blagojevich one time from a distance.”

FACT:   A blatant lie.  RB is also a convicted felon when he tried to sell BHO’s vacated senate seat to one of BHO’s associates.

BHO:     Eric Holder, “my Attorney General.”

FACT:   Holder negotiated an executive pardon at President Clinton’s request for Marc Rich, who was a fugitive from justice.

BHO:     “My Attorney General.”

FACT:   BHO continues to support Holder despite Holder’s lying under oath, being indicted by the House on his refusal to honor subpoenaed information on the “Fast and Furious” fiasco, and refusing to discuss the source of the leaks of highly classified documents.

BHO:     “My Attorney General.”

FACT:   BHO supports Holder’s attempt to overturn voter photo ID laws.

BHO:     His “Car Czar,” Steve Rattner.

FACT:   Rattner successfully bribed numerous elected officials.

BHO:     “I will cut waste.”

FACT:   Not according to the recent exposés on a host of lavish conferences.  I believe heads would have rolled with any other President, even Carter.

BHO:     “I don’t approach this from a partisan or ideological perspective.”

FACT:   This is what he promised the American people.  What were the stimulus, healthcare, etc. bills?”

BHO:     “Entitlements.”

FACT:   Many of the entitlements are today simply financial bribes by BHO.

BHO:     Acknowledges the “financial and budgetary matters.”

FACT:   BHO’s involvement with financial and financial-related matters fit in the “CROOK” category.  Why do we have deficits if he is against deficits?  Why do we have high taxes if he is against high taxes?  Why do we have no federal budget if he is responsible for the federal budget?  Why hasn’t BHO revised the tax laws?  Why does he continue to refer to the economy and inflation to account for his failures?

BHO:     “Lawyers” and “lobbyists.”

FACT:   When one thinks of “CROOK,” do we not almost automatically think of lawyers…or perhaps lobbyists.  Whatever happened to BHO’s promises regarding the aforementioned tort reform and the elimination of lobbyists?

BHO:     “…need for integrity.”

FACT:   Actually, it’s more like patronage, cronyism, corruption, and outright giveaways.

BHO:     “There is a need for federal subsidies.”

FACT:   Would a CROOK allow companies who receive massive federal funding (that’s our tax dollars, folks) donate a significant portion of that back to the political party of the CROOK?  The answer is YES as it applies to BHO.

BHO:     “…my beautiful wife Michelle.”

FACT:   The Last Lady is no HalleBerry but she is a savvy businesswoman when, as a part-time employee, had her salary increased from $100,000 to $300,000.  I need to note that BHO previously earmarked $1,000,000 for the Last Lady’s employer.  Does this also make the Last Lady a CROOK?

Here is what Mahatma Gandhi once wrote about “The Roots of Violence” in his book with the same title:

“Wealth without work…politics without principles.”

Does this apply to BHO?  You make the call.  But for me, BHO has brought lying, deceit, manipulation, dishonesty, etc., to an unacceptable level.

ON BEING AN EGOMANIAC

September 1, 2012

August 31, 2012

The following articles on Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) appeared earlier:

 

June 15:          On Being Dumb

June 30:          On Being a Liar

July 15:           On Being a Racist

July 31:           On Being Nasty and Arrogant

August 15:       On Being a Socialist/Communist

Is he an egomaniac?  Here’s Webster’s definition:

An intense and irresistible love for yourself and concern for your own needs.”

And, here’s what I have drawn from my Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) file.  Please note that a few of the quotes have appeared before, under a different category, in earlier articles.

BHO:     “I believe in American exceptionalism.”

FACT:   No one is more wise, virtuous and/or prudent.  NO ONE!  He believes he is exceptional, and unfortunately, he is … dumb, a racist, nasty, arrogant, etc., and, of course, an egomaniac.    Bottom Line:  He is an aloof, immoral intellectual.

BHO:     “I’m Lebron baby.  I can play at this level.”

FACT:   I’m 78 and I could take him, and I never played either scholastic or collegiate basketball.

BHO:     “I don’t want the folks who created this mess to do a lot of talking.  I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess.”

FACT:   The American people are going to have to pay to clean up his mess.

BHO:     “I was a Professor of Law.”

FACT:   He was a lecturer on leave…a title quite removed from Professor.

BHO:     “All the choices we’ve made have been the right ones.”

FACT:   Healthcare?  Stimulus bill? Eric Holder? Claiming executive privilege?  The debt?  How can a fair and objective individual classify these as the correct choices?

BHO:     “A democracy requires accountability and accountability requires transparency.”

FACT:   Like with the healthcare bill?  Or the stimulus?  Or “fast and furious?”  Unfortunately, he often legislates without accountability.

BHO:     “I think I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters.”

FACT:   That’s why he needs a teleprompter.

BHO:     “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors.”

FACT:   Wow!  And this from someone who is basically dumb.

BHO:     “I tell you right now that I’m a better political director than my political director.”

FACT:   Of course.  Why not humor this egomaniac!

BHO:     “I make no apologies for being reasonable.”

FACT:   This is a measure of how delusional BHO really is.

BHO:     “I passed 900 bills in Illinois.”

FACT:   How about only 26?  It turned out he had no interest in the process or in learning about being a good senator at either the state or national level.

BHO:     “Overall, I think it is going to be pretty hard to argue that we have not executed a strategy over the past three years that has put America in a stronger position than it was when I came into office.”

FACT:   He actually made this statement.  Obviously he believes the electorate is not that bright…and he may be right.  Does he believe it, or is he lying, or is he just plain dumb?  Must be a combination of the three.

BHO:     My book:  “Dreams from my Father”.

FACT:   This was written before he was 30 years old and before he worked an honest day in his life.  How many people do you know would have written their autobiography at that early a stage?  Don’t be surprised in the near future to see pictures of this saint-like (or is God-like) individual plastered all over the country.

BHO:     When warned about the potential disaster for the Democratic Party in the 2010 elections, he commented:  “the big difference here (is) you’ve got me?”

FACT:   As we know, the Democrats got clobbered.

My thought process turns to Greek mythology (home of my ancestors) when I think of BHO.  He reminds me of Zeus, King of all Gods, who is immortal and able to see what is obviously obscure to others.  He is also similar to the Oracles whose decisions and thought process required no justification.  Or perhaps Midas, who was granted the power to turn whatever he touched into gold.  Or perhaps (and even more appropriately) Hermes, the psycopomp god of thievery, cunning wiles, diplomacy, etc.

All of the above may be explained since everything was handed to him (as well as the Last Lady) because of his pedigree.  He just doesn’t understand that he is a servant of the people.  And, in the end, he and the Last Lady, unlike those who came before them, continue to be sanitized by the liberal media, rather than presented in a fair and objective manner.

A prediction:  If the race is close, or it looks like BHO is going to lose, look for him to increase entitlements, just like his recent move to retain the Hispanic voters with his delayed (3-1/2 years) illegal amnesty program.  Both he and the Last Lady now have such gigantic egos that they would sacrifice our country to get re-elected.  They are both spoiled brats and I do not think either would be able to handle a rejection.
