What is it about liberals? When they lose they whine, and when they win (twice) they whine – for eight years.If they’re totally committed to being aggrieved, nobody can make them happy; no matter what you try to do to make them smile.
Ta-Nehisi Coates - who also wrote a long treatise for The Atlantic about why blacks in America are owed billions in reparations premised on America being a racist country from day one, so you know his sentiments on race – has a new article about how Barry has endured racist behavior during his tenure. In My President Was Black he demonstrates how he and the outgoing president concur on the basic.premise:
“In 2008 I was never subjected to the kind of concentrated vilification of Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, the whole conservative-media ecosystem, and so as a consequence, even for my first two years as a senator I was polling at 70 percent. And it was because people basically saw me unfiltered. I was at a town-hall meeting, or I was talking to people directly, or they had met me, or I would speak at a university or go to a VFW hall. But they weren’t seeing some image of me as trying to take away their stuff and give it to black people, and coddle criminals, and all the stereotypes of not just African American politicians but liberal politicians. You started to see that kind of prism being established towards the end of the 2008 race, particularly once Sarah Palin was the nominee. And obviously almost immediately after I was elected, it was deployed in full force. And it had an impact in terms of how a large portion of white voters would see me.”
That’s a lot of whining from a guy who’s received less media criticism than any sitting president in the entire history of the country. With the exception of Fox News.
If you’ve already finished your Christmas shopping, wrapping and baking the full interview accompaniment is a hoot: ‘Better Is Good’: Obama on Reparations, Civil Rights, and the Art of the Possible. It contains gems like this quote from BHO:
And I would say this, I’ll go back to those black ladies I was talking about who love them some Barack and love Michelle even more…and if at the end of my presidency they feel like I did a pretty good job, then I’ll feel pretty good.
And let’s be honest, Barry feeling “pretty good” is really the only thing that matters. So what if he destroyed our healthcare system? So what if his foreign relations “experts” destroyed the Middle East, guaranteed a nuclear Iran and threatens to ignite a Third World War? [Hard to believe the chief architect of this fiasco lost her presidential bid isn’t it?]
Who cares that Barry and his Department of Justice set race relations back 50 years and opted to go after America’s peace keepers rather than the thugs destroying America’s social fiber? Does anyone really care that we have over 95 million men and women of working age not in the workforce because either there’s no work available or they don’t have to – thanks to government freebies funded by unsustainable Federal debt?
Anyway, I got my days mixed up so tomorrow will be Christmas Recipe Day. I promise to try to collect them all this year so be prepared – there are appetizers to make.
