Reading assignment

"The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme."

Any idea?

"We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye."

Need another clue?

"We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost."

Hey, those were the words of the preacher who married your current Charlatan-in-Chief, one Jeremiah Wright.

The excerpt: A great part of America now understands that this president's sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class. He is the alien in the White House, a matter having nothing to do with delusions about his birthplace cherished by the demented fringe.

Still another excerpt: It is no surprise that Mr. Posner—like numerous of his kind—has found a natural home in this administration. His is a sensibility and political disposition with which Mr. Obama is at home. The beliefs and attitudes that this president has internalized are to be found everywhere—in the salons of the left the world over—and, above all, in the academic establishment, stuffed with tenured radicals and their political progeny. The places where it is held as revealed truth that the United States is now, and has been throughout its history, the chief engine of injustice and oppression in the world.

They are attitudes to be found everywhere, but never before in a president of the United States.

And, of course, the link: The Alien in the White House

Yeah, but he's always looking for some "ass to kick" in the private sector. He's always looking for the enemy that lies within the world community...namely, America.

Sez me. And plenty of others.

A resignation is in order. A resignation should follow the biggest lie ever told to the American public. A resignation for the most cleverly crafted, but the most false facade ever perpetrated upon an unknowing but adoring voting public. Oh, and after only 18 painfully inept months in office, that resignation would be long, long overdue.

I hadn't been reading when Bush was President, but I'm assuming you were upset about him, too, right? Because, I mean, the Iraq War was an actual lie.

I'm not sure what lie you're accusing Obama of committing, especially since the WSJ opinion piece is just kind of vaguely accusing Obama of being ideologically wrong for America. Are you saying he's some kind of anti-American Halloweener who put on a mask to get our votes, then took it off the day he got elected to reveal his [insert Commie/Nazi/Fascist/Kenyan] agenda? What's the lie?

What lie? Uh, try lies.

Take a look at his campaign trail promises and you'll see that he's either flip-flopped or turned his back on darn near everything.

The biggest lie actually came from his supporters, who told us that "Gravitas" Biden's foreign policy experience made Obama's lack thereof a non-issue. Turns out, Obama is to foreign policy what BP is to deep-sea drilling.

Can any of you folks even discuss Obama without pointing back at Bush?

Bush? Oh yeah, well what about Clinton? Hell of an argument.

As for the Iraq war being predicated on a lie, less than a week after Bush read Saddam the pre-invasion riot act, I saw the satellite photos (subscription only) of the convoys beating it out of Iraq to Syria and in a big, big hurry.

And what were the points of origin of those convoys?

Those would be the suspected chemical weapon storage facilities.

None of this matters.

When those Bush tax cuts expire at the end of the year, then we'll all experience what a real economic depression feels like.
