So Barack Hussein Obama is “embarrassed” that our children are not bi-lingual? He recently related that “It’s embarrassing when Europeans come over here, they all speak English, they speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe and all we can say is merci beacoup, right?” What he fails to tell his mind-numbed audience is that most of the nations he listed have an “official” national language, except of course the United States. Which, by the way, he has voted against as a Senator. What is “embarrassing” is a newbie Senator thinking he knows what is best for my children. However, that is Barack Hussein Obama’s opinion of America in general: We are “children” to be molded into his new paradigm.
I find it interesting that all of sudden in order to be more palatable to more people in general and to do anything in order to win the election in November, Barack Hussein Obama now has done what all Democrats do during the summertime while swimming in the political pool: A John Kerry ten point dive. Belly flops are the norm and Barack Hussein Obama is not the exception, except wasn’t he supposed to be exceptional and well, different from all other politicians before him? His messianic swimsuit is slipping.
Dick Morris and Ellen McGann recently listed several areas where Barack Hussein Obama has hit the water with a big-belly splash:
“The list of issues on which Barack Obama has flipped now that the primaries are over is long and growing rapidly.
• He says he believes in a Second Amendment right to bear arms.
• He now opposes late-term abortion.
• He suddenly is a devotee of using faith-based institutions to deliver public services.
• He now says that he won’t raise Social Security taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 a year. In the primary, he said he’d eliminate the threshold entirely, including on people making as little as $100,000.
• He recently opposed the Fairness Doctrine for talk radio.
• Now he says he’s going to consult with the military before pulling out of Iraq.”
Wow! Not since John “I am a Vietnam Veteran” Kerry has the political water been hit so hard with such a resounding thud. But what is most surprising is Barack Hussein Obama’s silence as far as the oil crisis he and his Democratic minions have created. Hugh Hewitt got it right on when he wrote that “The economic mess the country confronts can be laid at the feet of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. The Don’t Drill Democrats are forcing deindustrialization through depression brought about by soaring energy costs. This is a man-made meltdown, and make no mistake: The Democrats could halt and reverse the skyrocketing cost of oil, but they are choosing not to.” Why? Because they would rather have you suffer for their reelection than to actually solve the issue, which is in their power to do almost immediately. Thinking they will gain Brownie-points with uber-liberals, Bush Derangement Syndrome is alive and well within the Democratic ranks and Barack Hussein Obama has jumped on the election say anything that does not mean anything to get elected bandwagon.
Does this mean McCain is a resounding success in these areas? Sadly, no. His shuffle leaves us more than a little at odds with his utter compromising lameness. However, we must focus on who we can elect and that is a Congress that will not be so lame and anti-American. I agree with Hewitt when he writes: “Energy is freedom. Energy is prosperity. Every Democrat on the fall ballot is part of the anti-energy party which is wrecking havoc on the economy and every family’s budget. A vote for any Democrat is a vote for shortages, rising gas prices, rising unemployment, and falling production. A vote for any democrat is a vote for failing airlines and collapsing financial institutions and for the shuttering of car plants and large manufacturing…. A growing, vibrant economy needs energy. The Democrats are anti-energy.” They are also anti-American, believing in killing our unborn children, redefining marriage, open borders, multi-cultural claptrap, promoting promiscuity, endorsing political correctness, and environmental national sabotage. A vote for Barack Hussein Obama and his minions is a vote for the same old same old neo-communism. He is not an agent for “change,” but one for getting as much change from your pocket as possible for his political party’s brand of social engineering.
Whether American children are bi-lingual or not is not the issue, however, if you vote for Barack Hussein Obama and liberal Democrats in November your children may need to know Mexican-Spanish sooner than you think.
