Stand By Your Man – April 12, 2008

“Stand by your man. And tell the world you love him. Keep giving all the love you can. Stand by your man.”
Obama’s got defenders no matter what he does or says. But lately, it’s getting harder and harder to defend him and believe in his message of change. More and more he seems like just another politician working his way up the food chain. Small town America was offended by his remarks which illustrated his view that they are clinging to antipathy toward people not like them because they’re bitter and frustrated over the loss of jobs in their towns. That they are bitter people who take it out on immigrants. Those aren’t his words, but that’s all you can take his statement to mean. He seemed to diminish their religious zeal and love for their Constitutional rights.
While he stands by his original statements, which he should have abandoned immediately, Obama tried to smooth them over with this explanation:
“I didn’t say it as well as I should have, because the truth is these traditions that are passed on from generation to generation, those are important,” Obama said in Muncie, Ind.
“But what is absolutely true is that people want to feel like they’re being listened to. And so they pray, and they count on each other and they count on their families,” Obama continued.
This doesn’t fix it, Mr. Obama, because it doesn’t address the rest of your original comments about clinging to antipathy toward people not like them (the statement I find most insulting) and anti-immigrant sentiment.
When you take off the rose colored glasses and take a clear look at Obama’s world, you find that he is emmersed in black liberation theology, that he travels in a circle that includes friends who skirt the law and make “deals”, that he pays homage to anti-American terrorists who still aren’t sorry for the crimes of their youth, that his wife makes anti-American remarks, that he has raised his children in a strongly biased anti-American racist atmostphere, that he deliberately speaks as if he is one of us, when in fact, he isn’t, and unfortunately that he looks us straight in the eye and lies to us.
He lied about knowing Jeremiah Wright was the racist hater that he is. He lied about ever hearing Wright’s hateful racist remarks. Later, he admitted to knowing about the remarks, but not hearing them in person. After that didn’t fly, he then admitted to hearing Wright make those remarks and said that he told Wright he didn’t agree with them.
He’s lying now about being one of those black liberation theology believers. His membership in that church for twenty years and his close personal relationship with Wright are proof enough. Add his wife’s similar comments that she was proud of her country for the first time in her adult life when her husband was running for president. (Where was she when Americans donated millions of dollars to the foreign countries devasted by the tsunami, and sent American doctors, nurses and other people over there to help? Where was she when Americans have always and consistently sent money, goods and people to help in disasters all over the world?)
He lied on CNN in the following:
“You know, I’ve heard from an Army captain who was the head of a rifle platoon — supposed to have 39 men in a rifle platoon,” he said. “Ended up being sent to Afghanistan with 24 because 15 of those soldiers had been sent to Iraq. And as a consequence, they didn’t have enough ammunition, they didn’t have enough humvees. They were actually capturing Taliban weapons, because it was easier to get Taliban weapons than it was for them to get properly equipped by our current commander in chief.”
They’ve checked this out and it isn’t true.
On another ocassion, Obama lied about the Kennedy family financing his father to come to America. Not true. Then he told the sweetest story to a large crowd about how his parents met and fell in love at a Selma march in 1965 and so he can say that he is the product of the Selma march, a way to attach himself to that movement and become a part of it. Except that it isn’t true either. He forgot that he was born in 1961, and was already four years old at the time of the Selma march. Another lie.
On Wednesday’s (April 2) CBS “Evening News” anchor Katie Couric did a segment on why politicians lie.
(Katie) COURIC: But on the campaign trail, stretching the truth can be as common as kissing babies. And Barack Obama has gilded the lily as well. Obama claimed it was the Kennedy family that helped finance his father’s journey from Kenya to America.
BARACK OBAMA: So it is partly because of their generosity that my father came to this country.
COURIC: Except that wasn’t true. Neither was another story about the 1965 march on Selma inspiring his parents to fall in love. Trouble is, Obama was born four years before that.
When the story first broke, Obama lied about knowing Tony Rezko. After it became apparent that he did know Rezko, he downplayed it as a business acquaintance. Eventually, Obama had to admit that Rezko had been a friend for years and bought the property attached to the home Obama wanted to buy. Apparently, Obama couldn’t buy just the house without the land and couldn’t afford the whole thing. So his friend, Rezko, bought the property adjoining the house on the same day that Obama bought the house, later selling just the strip of land closest to Obama’s house to him. What could Rezko do with the rest of his lot? Was it big enough to build on or resell? This was a case of Obama getting a sweet deal from Rezko, whom he earlier said he didn’t know that well. Oh, really? Another lie.
As a state senator from Illinois and as a U.S. Senator, Obama has taken credit for bills that were really the work of others, as stated publicly by those others, who are miffed at Obama for stealing their credit. Researching Obama’s rise in the Illinois Senate reveals that a senior senator decided to make Obama a star and put his name on bills that were the long time work of others. It was deliberate to elevate Obama. He was being groomed. He takes credit for getting things done, as if he accomplished them single-handedly, but no one person has that kind of power, not even a governor or president. These things were the accomplishment of a senate majority. More lies.
Obama has told the following lies which, according to http://www.audacityofhypocrisy.com/?page_id=15, there are 72 and counting:
His father was a goat Herder – Lie – His father was a privileged, well educated youth who went to work for the Kenyan government.
His father was a freedom fighter – Lie – His father was part of one of the most corrupt and violent governments Kenya has ever had.
His family has strong ties to African freedom – Lie – His cousin, Raila Odinga has created mass violence in attempting to overturn legitimate election in 2007, in Kenya. It is the first widespread violence in decades. He has promised, if elected to invoke Sharia Law. Obama went there and supported his cousin, according to online news sites, complete with pictures of the two together.
Please visit the site above and read the list of lies.
Obama has developed the pattern of all habitual liars. He lies. He gets caught. Then he lies again to cover the first lie. That lie is also found out and he spins a tale which ends up being confusing and making little sense. Then he admits to the truth and speaks as if the first lies were never told. Before he gets completely out of one set of lies, another set crops up. Each new set of lies overtakes the last set. He is always juggling the fallout of multiple lies.
He could be dangerous in a position of power. He cooly looks into the camera and straight into our eyes and tells whopper lies without batting an eye. (Hey, does that remind you of anyone?) Refer to Marbie’s Blog on March 16, 2008 “The First Black Bill Clinton”
Just like Hillary stood by her man, when the truth about Bill came out, Obama supporters are standing by their man. But that may be temporary as more truth becomes known. Hillary needed Bill to get herself elected president. Obama supporters are already disillusioned with politicians and stand to gain nothing by sticking with a fraud. Whether they realize who and what this man really is before he is elected president or after, they will feel very betrayed.
