Who Have We Become?


The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency.

It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” Author Unknown



Obama Deems Steelers More Important than 100 Kindergarteners

j0439434

The kindergarteners from Stafford County, VA were scheduled to have their field trip to the White House to meet with the President Thursday morning (May 14th).

Due to traffic circumstances the kids were 10 minutes late (ONLY ten minutes folks).  But Obama’s staff told them that he was too busy getting ready for his meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers to meet with them. (Wow, get a load of those priorities. Don’t you think that’s kind of messed up? I know I do.)

TEN minutes late.  So . . . was he only planning to give the kindergartners 10 minutes of his time to begin with????? What is UP with THAT?

Then the spin doctors tried to smooth over the appearance of it all to the press, by saying that Obama had planned to create care packages for U.S. troops with the Steelers players—Yeah sure, THAT’s what it was—of course Obama AND the Steelers are just so much more important than those little children that had been planning this trip for months and paid for a charter bus to take them to the White House.  Understandably the kids were crushed. (PRI-OR-I-TIES)

In all honesty, I’m sure the Pittsburgh Steelers would’ve been more than happy to allow him time to spend with the kids for probably an entire hour. In fact, most of your sports figures take active part in working with local kids to encourage them. I’ll bet if asked, the Steelers players would’ve been happy to meet with the little tykes along WITH (or without)  Obama.

The way these things go, the blame will be cast all about by the spin doctors—on everybody else under the sun—but the plain truth is that Obama is at fault here. He knew what he was doing, and he dissed the kids without any thought for their feelings. But this is in keeping with his personality (that many people are not aware of).

He really doesn’t care (even though we were led to believe so). Just keep paying attention, the truth always comes out in the end.

I’m going to classify this article under Odd & Bizarre (for lack of better title). It really is odd, and I think, unconsionable to treat those small children like the dregs in a tea cup. Understandably one of the parents was pretty miffed.

I’ll bet most of the other parents were as well. It was ridculous–and don’t let him get away with blame-shifting on this–there is not a good excuse–he made a judgment call from his heart.  It was a poor judgment call, like several other poor judgment calls our current administration has made so far.
