Yep, I’m quoting Marx! After all, it’s apparently the “in” thing to do these days!!! Barack Obama is quoting him, so I figured I didn’t want to be left out. Now, I am not very original, because I’m using the same quote Obama used, more or less. He seems to think that people in economic stress cling to guns, religion and racism. Say what? Wow. I’ve read a lot of stuff today about this, from Joe Nobody blogs to Wallstreet Journal articles. They all seem to agree that he has pretty much hanged himself with that quote. (Oh, I hope so!!) But I am going to say what nobody else has yet said (at least that I’ve found yet): The man is a brazen idiot!!!! The more I hear about Obama, the more the hair on the back of my neck begins to stand straight up. First, he was talking about ‘shared prosperity’, now he’s quoting Karl Marx!! For those of you who slept through history class, let me bring you up to speed here: Communism and Marxism failed miserably!!!
Hello? Is there anybody out there? (Direct quote from Pink Floyd not intended.) This is a very dangerous man, and he wants to lead our country? He doesn’t have the skill, the experience, or the common sense to lead a dog through the park, much less lead our country. So, it truly begs the question: WHO is behind him? I’m not talking about all the empty-headed young girls who are drooling all over him, or all of the racist blacks in our nation who are hoping for a public forum to express their views. I mean, WHO is BEHIND him? “What rough beast, his hour come round at last, slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?” (W.B. Yeats) Perhaps it’s Ted Kennedy. Perhaps it’s some terrorist group looking to secure a strong foothold in our government, and bring the infidels at last to judgment. Or maybe it’s some secret socialist society connected to the UN. I don’t know. What is painfully, frighteningly apparent to me, however, is that this man is not bright enough to get to this point on his own. Somebody is working his strings behind the curtain.
And his wife?? Wow. She’s quite possibly more dangerous and deceitful than her husband. When she talks to black women’s organizations, she presents herself as the modern-day Aunt Jemima, who, in spite of insurmountable odds and dire poverty, managed to scrape and claw her way through college and marry an up-and-comer in the political scene. When she’s not busy spinning a false-memory childhood, she dresses like she just stepped off the cover of Vogue, not out of some hovel ruled by an oppressive, racist, bigoted ‘cracker’. Upon closer examination, we see that Michelle Obama actually grew up in a very nice home in Chicago. Yes, it was a ‘black neighborhood’, but a darned nice, upscale one. Far better than many ‘white neighborhoods’. Her parents were wonderful, and worked hard to make sure she and her brother got the best start in this world. Hmmm. . . my daddy didn’t send ME to Princeton!!
Do folks want a black president? A woman president? Okay by me. I suggest Colin Powell, or better still, Condoleeza Rice. She’s black AND female!! I would work my tail off campaigning door-to-door for either one them. But with Obama as a possibility, I’m thinking maybe I need to update my passport!!
