OH Lookit!!! A NEW Birther Think Tank Internet Article!!!
If you wish to be a success in the world, promise everything, deliver nothing. (Napoleon Bonaparte)
I have written on this general theme before, but let me discuss how
Scientific Birtherism provides a window in Obama’s soul. I have long
held that the REAL Birther Question is WHY
Obama does not resolve this matter by providing a copy of his long form
birth certificate. I answer that question with the KISS Matrix which
provides a framework of possible reasons which analyze WHY:
1. KENYA. He is born in Kenya, or there is something embarrassing on the long form.
2. IGNORANT. Obama is too ignorant to think of the simple answer.
3. SNOBBY. Obama thinks Americans are too stupid to believe the REAL THING!
4. SLIMY. Obama thinks it is OK to make some Americans look crazy if it gets him votes.
Most Obots I have debated with gleefully jump on No.
4, and re-phrase it in Machiavellian robes of “Political Cleverness”.
OH, isn’t Obama just sooo smart to let his enemies shoot themselves in
the foot and why should he stop them. Let’s go with the Obotski
assessment for a while.
This window into Obama’s soul reveals a man who places
his re-election chances ahead of doing the right thing and putting
America first. This even while he sanctimoniously calls
for ending divisiveness in America. And make no mistake, it is a very
divisive issue. Feelings run high on both sides. Polls indicate nearly
60% of the country as a whole has some degree of doubt where Obama was
born, ranging from Definitely Sure he was born outside the U.S. to Probably but not Definitely Sure he was born in the United states.
At present, Obama has a very uncomfortable fact of life with which he
must live. That is, he was shellacked in the November Mid term
elections, and the Republicans easily control the House of
Representatives. And among Republicans, the belief that Obama was not
born in the U.S is even higher and stronger than the above numbers. Any
compromise that Obama must work out for the good of the country, will be
with a party whose rank and file flatly believe Obama is a foreigner.
Has Obama realized this fact, and coughed up his long form??? No,
because making political points and getting re-elected is more important
to him than doing the right thing. And Republicans got a good dose of
this when Obama made his speech about the budget and blatantly savaged
Sen. Paul Ryan who he had invited to the speech. As Keith Hennessey
noted in his Internet Article, “Obama squandered chance to reach across aisle“,
The president’s budget speech was an effective way to
launch the 2012 campaign. He has set up a debate about the future of
fiscal policy and the role of government.
He has poisoned the well for bipartisan negotiations, killing any
chance of a grand budget bargain in the next 18 months. With a single
speech he has relegated America to two more years of partisan budgetary
stalemate, as we drift closer and closer to fiscal oblivion.
Obama’s own political party is going schizophrenic over Obama, unable
to believe him yet seemingly impotent to dump him. He promised to
close Gitmo, and didn’t. He promised to end the Bush Tax Cuts, and
didn’t. He promised to end the Patriot Act, and didn’t. He promised to
get a public option through health care reform, and didn’t. He promised
to rein in Wall Street, and didn’t. He promised to end the war in Iraq,
and didn’t. In fact, the Nobel Peace Prize winning President got us
involved in a new one. I could go on. But, what Obama promised to do,
but hasn’t done, or caved in on would take volumes. For the Democrats,
Obama might want to re-write that “Change You Can Believe In” slogan for
2012 to “Change You Can Bereave In!” because the only thing that “changed” for them was Obama.
Yet, should Republicans, or even the Democrats be surprised??? The Window into The Soul Of Obama provided by his response to “cough up the long form”,
paints a picture of a man who could care less what large numbers of
Americans believe as long as it has the chance of motivating his base or
getting himself re-elected. The Question needs to be asked: Does
America really need a “politically clever” and cynically political
president worried only about his own re-election and self-glorification
at this juncture in our history??? You will get a chance to answer in
