Have I Become Unhinged?

By Arthur Piccolo

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Nov. 18, 2016: Since the election of Nov. 8, 2016,  President Obama’s comments have become even more ridiculous than usual.

Or is it only my imagination? Let’s explore the issue.

First of all you can understand why Obama may have become unhinged after being certain Hillary Clinton would continue his legacy. To which I reply …

WHAT LEGACY? He is not as whacked out as Donald Trump but it is Obama’s FAILURE to have a REAL legacy that produced Donald Trump, and yes also his “successful” conspiracy to derail Bernie Sanders and give us the nightmare named Hillary Clinton – the only candidate Trump could beat!

Let me stay on message. Where are those New York Times articles?

 

… Yes, here we go. First this article from November 15th titled: “ Visiting Europe, Obama Warns Against ……..”

“When you see a Donald Trump and a Bernie Sanders, very unconventional candidates, having considerable success, then obviously there is something there that is being tapped into,” Mr. Obama said. “A suspicion of globalization. A desire to rein in its excesses.”

What is important here is that Barack Obama puts Bernie Sanders in the same category as Donald Trump and most of all labels Bernie Sanders an UNCONVENTIONAL candidate.

Here are the facts President Obama. Bernie Sanders would have beaten Donald Trump because he is clearly unlike Donald Trump and in a very good way unlike Hillary Clinton. Even more to the point, Bernie Sanders was the most CONVENTIONAL candidate because he best addressed – of all the candidates – what Americans want most of all – fairness and equality unlike Donald Trump who will deliver unfairness and inequality!

No doubt about it; you surely are unhinged Barack, believing the kind of nonsense in your quote from The Times and seeing Bernie Sanders as something other than the BEST candidate running in 2016,. Instead you hooked yourself up with that Con Artist Hillary Clinton otherwise known as the Democrats “answer” (sic) to Donald Trump – a Bigger Con Artist.

Let’s see what other gems from Obama are in this article. …

“I do believe, separate and apart from any particular election or movement, that we are going to have to guard against a rise in a crude sort of nationalism or ethnic identity or tribalism that is built around an ‘us’ and a ‘them,’” Mr. Obama said.

That sounds good except if you look at his statement more closely. Take out the word “crude” and read it again …. “I do believe, separate and apart from any particular election or movement, that we are going to have to guard against a rise in nationalism or ethnic identity or tribalism that is built around an ‘us’ and a ‘them,’” Mr. Obama said.

The fact is that President Obama is REFUSING to address the needs of identity groups within our larger society, especially African-Americans, is an overwhelming FAILURE of his Presidency. Time and again these last 8 years, Obama hid behind the statement that by supposedly helping ALL  Americans he does enough to help  Black Americans. Nonsense! By refusing to address the very real disparities African-Americans face, he failed them.

And President Obama’s embrace of globalism also identified in this same statement is all about losing our individuality and identities and rather all of us blending into to a nebulous global identity where the Elites thrive so well.

So much for that path to oblivion!

And look here in this statement how Obama completely subverts the meaning and value of group identity …

“In the United States, we know what happens when we start dividing ourselves along lines of race or religion or ethnicity. It’s dangerous,” he said. “Not just for the minority groups that are subjected to that kind of discrimination or, in some cases in the past violence, but because we don’t then realize our potential as a country when we’re preventing blacks or Latinos or Asians or gays or women from fully participating in the project of building American life.”

Really? African-Americans should not have a group identity in order to enhance their status. Nor Latinos or Asians or Women? Really? Nonsense!
And get this from President Obama …

Mr. Obama was unapologetic and unequivocal on his record of inclusiveness. “So my vision’s right on that issue,” he said. “And it may not always win the day in the short term in any particular political circumstance, but I’m confident it will win the day over the long term.”

What inclusiveness is that President Obama? Hillary’s “inclusiveness” of the Status Quo that protects the rich and powerful who thrive on the Status Quo?

Let’s move on to another article from our partner the New York Times …

How about this from November 12th titled … “Obama’s Policies and Broader Vision Face Reckoning With History.”

“As he raced across the country before the election, President Obama warned supporters about the stakes. “All the progress we’ve made over these last eight years,” he said, “goes out the window if we don’t win this election.”

“Hillary Clinton, his anointed successor, did not win, and so now Mr. Obama will find out whether his prediction was just campaign hyperbole or if his legacy really has just gone out the window. Not only are specific initiatives like his health care and climate change programs at risk, but so, too, is the broader vision Mr. Obama articulated for America.”

Encore ….. “Not only are specific initiatives like his health care and climate change programs at risk, but so, too, is the broader vision Mr. Obama articulated for America.”

Obamacare, a success really? President Obama’s gift to the health care industry that is screwing Americans rather than pushing for the public option or more to the point and far better single payer health care for Americans.

And what exactly is President Obama’s “broader vision for America” he articulated? An endless number of vacuous speeches that meant nothing and his FAILURE to deliver the REAL change he promised 8 years ago!

Also from the same Times article ….

“Since the electoral earthquake that made Donald J. Trump his designated successor, Mr. Obama has consoled his team — and himself — by telling them that they moved the country forward despite this obvious setback. Change does not follow a straight line, he told crying aides. Instead, it tends to zig and zag.”

What a Joke …. “Mr. Obama has consoled his team — and himself — by telling them that they moved the country forward despite this obvious setback. Change does not follow a straight line, he told crying aides.”

ENOUGH … forget about the rest of the articles I was going to quote.

Who is really CRYING? It is all the rest of us because Obama did his part in electing Trump by NOT producing real change these last 8 years.
