Every week, the WoW! community and our invited guests weigh in at the Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s question: What’s Your Reaction to Barack Hussein Obama’s New Speech?
Jeffrey Avalon Friedberg: I didn’t read it, or hear it.
Obama, is—and has always been—a lying bastard.
1. He lied some 32 times about Obamacare.
2. His “parents” were never legally married.
Also, what the hell is the deal here ?
Obama was born a Muslim, and is still alive, so, he must still—according to Sharia Law—be a Muslim.
His legal name after he was adopted by his Indonesian stepfather is Barry Soetoro, and he has never, ever legally changed it to his self-chosen, warlike, Arabic names. And there is no evidence—not anywhere—that he has done so.
Early written material, apparently published by him, says he was born in Kenya.
His alleged birth certificate—to me, and I have seen many of them in 35 years as a licensed private investigator—appears to be a poorly made, computer-generated fraud.
Both times he was “elected” he was secretly sworn in twice—each time. Using both alleged names?
Records about his life and education are sealed and not available to anybody.
Who is he?
Patrick O’Hannigan: My answer isn’t as colorful as Jeffrey’s, but I did not read or listen to Obama’s recent speech, either. I was amused by one caller I heard on Rush Limbaugh’s show, where Ken Matthews (?) was guest hosting. The caller said Obama had tried to take credit for the Trump economy. He said that reminded him of when he was a kid, and his mother would strive to open a peanut butter jar before giving up and handing it to him. When he then opened the jar, she’d say, “See! I loosened it for ya.” But the funny analogy did not quite fit (according to the caller), because Obama not only did NOT “loosen the lid” for Donald Trump; he (Obama) was twisting it the wrong way.
Rob Miller: I did see Obama’s new speech, as well as a transcript. One thing few people noticed is that Obama didn’t once refer to his successor as ‘President Trump.’
Other than that, it was quite typical. Filled with classless behavior, mistruths, self-aggrandizement and whining while taking credit for the work and accomplishments of far better men as well as lying about his own ‘accomplishments.’
What were they?
He weakened America at every turn, from our military to our basic institutions like the courts, our healthcare system and academia. Obama came close to ruining the economy and ran up more debt with less to show for it than all his predecessors combined. As president , he went out of his way to exacerbate racial tensions, happily militarized government agencies to go after those he considered his political foes and ended by gifting our sworn enemy, one who was complicit in 9/11 with billions of dollars.
It doesn’t matter, really. The Left will always love him , because he came the closest of any American president of turning America into a socialist hellhole. And of course, because he was the first black president.
He got every benefit and boost up the ladder America has to offer and worked for very little of it. The historians in academia will paint him in glowing terms, but he remains a classic example of the bird who deliberately crapped in his own nest and did his best to foul it beyond redemption.
Fausta Rodriquez Wertz: I wasn’t interested in watching. Former president. Yesterday’s news.
Laura Rambeau Lee: I had two immediate reactions. President Obama, you didn’t build that! And thankfully …President Obama is #NotMyPresident anymore.
Well, there it is!
