Latest Propaganda. USA Propping Up Theocratic Fascist Mini-Caliphates

Published by at 12:22 am under politics,propaganda

I’ve felt let down by American President Barack Obama. Not that I voted for him — heck, I’m Canadian. But I had high hopes, some of which have been tarnished.

He’s still head and shoulders above his competition, past and present (I’m as disdainful of a Romney presidency as I was of a McCain one). But I’m not fond of his adaptation of the old American habit (continued under George Bush Jr.) of acquiescing to the worst reactionaries abroad. The USA is still the world’s only superpower — it’s leader can afford the political capital required to condemn fascist religious fanatics who want to drag their societies back into the Dark Ages.

    Barack Obama was head and shoulders above who?
    What has the ‘Affirmative Action’ President accomplished? Other than becoming President? He over-whelmingly voted present as a State and National Senator.
    All of his school records are sealed. Nothing he has said or done has suggested particular smarts.
    If you are going to be a political blogger at least do some research before falling for MSM narrative.

    On top of that Barrack Obama is a devout marxist. Sure McCain is a squish but at least he believes in free market capitalism.

    Hey Paul and James. The guy only helped prevent the American economy — and the world economy — from falling off a cliff. Under his watch, Osama bin Laden got two shots to the head. But I guess neither of those things counts for anything.

    Wake up, people.

    Hey J.,
    A very naive/shallow assessment of Obama’s economic handling of the US economy. It is stuck in the doldrums; unemployment is a disaster; 46,000,000 of his fellow citizens are on food stamps; 50% of college graduates are either unemployed or under employed, more debt has been created under his watch than any of his predecessors by a long shot; he hasn’t been able to play nice with the Republicans in the House and his own majority Democratic Senate would not pass his budget. “The guy only helped prevent the American economy — and the world economy — from falling off a cliff.” Give me a break! Most of the money ended up in the hands of the psychopathic (callous, selfish, dishonest, arrogant, aggressive, impulsive, irresponsible, and hedonistic) bankers who used it to feather there own nest. One could go on and on regarding his disastrous effect on the economy. He has allowed John Corzine, one of his bundlers to steal 1.500,000,000 from segregated customer accounts at MF Global and with no investigation by his Justice Dept.
    Let’s give him the credit for taking out Osama but it’s not like he found him, he just gave the order to do him in.
    Why do you have such disdain for Romney? It is “all about the economy” and there is no doubt that a guy who has demonstrated some financial acumen in his own life would be a better steward of the American economy although from my own point of view, I believe it is beyond salvaging.
    I go along with Paul above, you need to do a bit more research and analysis.

    “The guy only helped prevent the American economy — and the world economy — from falling off a cliff.”

    CITATION NEEDED

    You mean the damage to the American economy caused by Bill Clinton? The idiocy of forcing American banks to grant mortgages to people who couldn’t possibly afford them?

    (well, begun by Jimmy Carter and completed by Clinton)

    He didn’t do anything to fix the economy that anyone else wouldn’t have also done, but he *did* do a couple of really stupid things that will stall the recovery process even further.

    That’s not why I can’t stand him, though. No…that goes back to his campaign against McCain, where he was a staunch advocate for public financing of presidential campaigns. UNTIL his fundraising efforts suddenly surpassed McCain’s, that is…at which point he COMPLETELY REVERSED his previous position, weakly defended by the ludicrous statement that “private financing is the ultimate form of pubic financing” (??). The story was covered for only one day by a handful of media outlets (who reported that “dozens of Obama campaign workers had quit in disgust over the issue”), then DROPPED LIKE A ROCK so as not to interrupt the coronation of The Savior.

    That was all I needed to know about the character of Barack Obama right there. Too bad most Americans weren’t told about it…

    If you don’t support Romney, the guy that actually has made a payroll, actually knows what work is, actually has people that work for him, in short, a man with some life experience other than voting present and “neighbourhood organizing.”

    Obama is a bad man and I really hope that he is tossed this election. As far as getting Osama, he followed Bush’s leads and they finally paid off.
