Barack Hussein Obama II – The Real “Teflon Don”
I remember when I was younger hearing about the mobster, John Gotti, "NY Post" headlines of "I Forgotti," and how nothing seemed stick to him. Also, having hailed from Rhode Island, a state where corrupt politics is "politics as usual," I am pretty use to officials being brought up on RICO and other charges. After a while though, John Gotti was found guilty, and he went to jail. And in my home state, Mayor Vincent "Buddy" Cianci, a staple in RI politics who seemed to be impervious to anything, hell he even made a comeback after assaulting a man with a cigarette, (lit), back in the mid-eighties, still went to jail. Gotti and Cianci as it turns out, did not wear suits made out of Teflon. There is someone though I think who does though, President Obama, and while I am not saying he has does anything that is "jail worthy," he has done some shady shit, and he is just lucky enough people out there drink his Kool-Aid.
President Obama was going to be the president who united our country, not divide it. Maybe it really was the other way around because when Harvard Professor and Obama friend, Henry L. Gates Jr., (an African American), was arrested for disorderly conduct after slamming his door on a white police officer who was responding to a possible break-in. President Obama said "the Cambridge Police acted stupidly..." This of course led to the "Beer Summit," and all was forgotten. Then there was the Hispanic male who shot an African American in self-defense, you know, the George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin incident. The case of course turned into a "white on black" race crime with celebrities basically calling for the head of Zimmerman, and Spike Lee even Tweeting an incorrect address for the Zims. President Obama could have used this time to sooth our divided country, but instead he said, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon." So much for helping thing out, but that's okay because nothing sticks to the president.
One thing that is good about the president is that he apparently reads the newspaper. Thank God, because without doing that, how else would he have heard about "Operation Fast and Furious," where we gave weapons to drug cartels, lost some and later an ATF officer was murdered, or the IRS targeting his political adversaries. Hell, Eric Holder even tried to claim he didn't know anything about "Fast and Furious." And yet, nothing stuck to Obama.
On 12 September 2012, our embassy in Libya was attacked, during which our ambassador and three other man were slaughtered. What did President Obama do? He went to bed and got up the next morning for a flight to Las Vegas for a campaign fundraiser. Later, during a debate with Gov. Romney, Obama had the audacity to say "The suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the secretary of state, our UN ambassador, anybody on my team, would play politics or mislead when we lost four of our own, governor, is offensive." Well, there was the whole blaming of the event on an internet video that had almost no views prior to it getting blamed. And what has been done about the attackers? Nada, but still the shit just slid off Obama's suit.
How about the rest of Obama's foreign policy? On day one of his first term in office, he signed an order to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay - almost five years later, it's still open. As a senator, Obama chastised President Bush for his wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but President Obama has since supported the overthrow of leaders in two countries, (how did that go for the Egyptians), and has basically turned his back on Israel in support of talks with Iran, a country filled with anti-Semites. But does anyone really care? No, well at least no one who works for MSNBC or has an Obama Phone.
We have the NSA spying on us and foreign dignitaries, the Justice Department going through AP emails and the emails of Fox News reporter James Rosen, but still no one, including our president has been held responsible.
"If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like you healthcare plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away from you, no matter what.” Those were words said by President Obama, and during his first term prior to Obama Care becoming law, after it was passed, during his reelection campaign, and basically right up to when over four million Americans lost their plans due to Obama Care, he continued to say a variation of that exact quote, time, and time again. And what about the one where he said he wouldn't sign a bill that added a dime to our deficit? How much is Obama Care costing us now? Still, the sheep "baaa" every time he says anything.
The latest scandal to popup is the possibility that the jobless rate numbers were altered in order to help President Obama right before the election in 2012. According to the NY Post, the 7.8% jobless rate, which was 8.1% prior, may not have been all that accurate. Yea, perhaps the NY Post isn't the best thing to depend on, but was the National Enquirer wrong when they reported presidential nominee, and former senator, John Edwards had a love child?
Now, Rep. Issa, (R-CA) has vowed to bring about a congressional hearing concerning the possibility that the jobless rate numbers were altered, but can we really expect anything out of it? Did anything happen after the same type of hearings were conducted on the Benghazi attack, Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting conservative groups, the screw-up of the HealthCare.gov rollout, or anything else for that matter? Was anyone really held accountable? Fired? Imprisoned? No, they were not, because President Obama has a suit made of Teflon and those who grab on tight enough have that shit run off onto them too.
It's too bad, because if people really sat back and took a minute to analyze all that he has said, all that has been proven false, and his lack of taking responsibility for anything, maybe a light would turn on and people would wake up. The fact is, more African Americans are unemployed under Obama than Bush, people are being dropped from their health coverage like it's hot, and really nothing will be done about it.
