An open letter to president Barack Obama. About your speech to the recent graduates at the University of Michigan, why all the deceit?
What students were told by the president has not been happening in main-stream America. The media would like us to believe it, we don’t.
With his trusty teleprompter, President Barack Hussein Obama delivered a speech that was disingenuous at best, filled with half-truths and out right lies. I will provide the meaning of his words.
Dear President Obama:
How could you be so disingenuous when speaking to the young minds at the recent University of Michigan graduation ceremony? Among other things, you took aim at the angry rhetoric of those who denigrate government as “inherently bad” and said their off-base line of attack ignores the fact that in a democracy, “government is us.”
A complete falsehood Mr. President. The current administration is not us, it’s you and your agenda. You care not for the people you govern. You and your ideologically driven congress push your agenda upon America when the vast majority of Americans want nothing to do with it or your czar driven administration.
Prior to WWII Germany was a democracy. We sir, are a republic within a democracy. Have you forgotten?
To the foes who portray government as oppressive and tyrannical – I warn that overheated language can signal extremists that “perhaps violence is … justifiable.”
No, Mr. President, your administration is oppressive and tyrannical. For you not to understand that demonstrates your lack of awareness of America, the meaning of freedom and liberty. You sir and your Democrat congressional idealogues are oppressive and tyrannical.
Daily, your agenda strips us of our freedoms. You have repeatedly lied to us. What happened Mr. President to your promises of governmental transparency, no new taxes on families making under $250,000, and the VAT?
We The People refuse to live under the tyranny of your administration. We reject you and your administration’s lies.
The president then said, “But what troubles me is when I hear people say that all of government is inherently bad,” “When our government is spoken of as some menacing, threatening foreign entity, it ignores the fact that in our democracy, government is us.”
There you go again Mr. President. The American people don’t say “All people are saying that all government is inherently bad.” I’ve never heard those words until now, did you make them up? We The People do not believe that ‘ all government is bad.’ We believe that your Presidency, administration, czars, and agenda are inherently bad for America.
As to your assertion that “our government is spoken of as some menacing, threatening foreign entity” we are not talking about our government, we are talking about you and your failed ideologically driven plans.
No room for compromise? You talk about bi-partisanship, yet your “televised health care summit” was a complete fraud. It was clear to all that watched, it was a charade, ‘your way or the highway.’
Yes you showed us Mr. President, by using every trick in the book to make sure government, your government would take over of ‘our’ health care industry as it was passed into law.
What about the majority of Americans who disapproved of your plan and still do by a large margin? Your thinking, the public’s desires be damned. You didn’t even ask us to eat cake!
President Obama then said, the government is the roads we drive on and the speed limits that keep us safe. It’s the men and women in the military, the inspectors in our mines, the pioneering researchers in public universities.
Americans support these programs Mr. President. They are not the government sir, they are the programs that we fund with our tax dollars please do not try to confuse the issue.
The financial meltdown dramatically showed the dangers of too little government, he said, “when a lack of accountability on Wall Street nearly led to the collapse of our entire economy.”
Again you lie Mr. President. Blaming it on Wall Street is nothing but a shell game. You are fully aware that your party was advised in 2004 in hearings conducted by the Republicans that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were fiscally unsound. Members of your party in the house and senate lied to receive continued campaign contributions and sweet-heart loans below normal lending rates.
Question Mr. President, if ‘Wall Street’ was the problem, why do you surround yourself with its members in a disingenuous attempt to guide you when they ’caused the problem?’
Equally incredible sir, is your assertion that too little government and lack of accountability “nearly led to the collapse of our entire economy.” Sir, our government is too big, accountability is only difficult when members of your own party lied during the hearings. That sir, may have prevented the economic collapse from happening.
The president urged both sides in the political debate to tone it down. “Throwing around phrases like ‘socialists’ and ‘Soviet-style takeover,”fascists’ and ‘right-wing nut’ – that may grab headlines,” he said. But it also “closes the door to the possibility of compromise…
Tell that to the members of your party Mr. President, and particularly Nancy Pelosi, who frequently uses the terms unamerican, Astro Turf, Nazi’s, racist gun nuts, while trying to diminish members of the movement.
That certainly plays well with your media, We The People are rarely heard. Like you Mr. President, members of your party lied when they suggested to the media that attendees at the Tea party used racial and sexual slurs to members of congress as they entered the halls of congress to vote on your ‘health care bill.’ Of course the media had a field day with these unproven allegations.
Do we use the term socialist? You betcha, because that’s what you, your administration, and your agenda are all about. You told Joe the plumber that redistribution of wealth is a good thing. That sir, is socialism, simply defined.
You once said judge me by who I surround myself. Why have you chosen “greedy” Wall Street Bankers, socialists, avowed communists, Maoists, and Marxists to help you bring our country down.
Then the president said,”at its worst, it can send signals to the most extreme elements of our society that perhaps violence is a justifiable response.”
By this Mr. President you must mean the Union thugs from SEIU, the criminals at ACORN the fake groups that are trying to infiltrate the tea parties, and members of your own Nancy Pelosi driven congress. They sir are the “extreme elements” who incite violence while playing to your beloved media.
It’s not going to work Mr. President, We The People are peaceful. We will extract our revenge upon your oppressive reign at the polls come this November. In 2012 Mr. president you will be gone, sadly replacing Jimmy Carter as the failed presidency in the History of the United States.
Passionate rhetoric isn’t new, the president said. Politics in America,”has never been for the thin-skinned or the faint of heart. … If you enter the arena, you should expect to get roughed up.”
The president asked the graduates hearing his words to avoid cynicism and brush off the overheated noise of politics. In fact, he said, they should seek out opposing views.
Be very careful what you wish for Mr. President, and while we are on the subject, why didn’t you take your own advice about seeking our opposing views?
The young enthusiastic graduates listening to you no doubt will become very cynical as they enter a non-existent job market for new graduates. They will learn that the things they were told about economics were nothing but Utopian lies. Lies which you and your party still propagate.
The president advised, if you’re a regular Glenn Beck listener, then check out the Huffington Post sometimes. If you read The New York Times editorial page the morning, then glance every now and then at The Wall Street Journal.
Oh Please, how many students watch Glenn Beck. If they did which would be a great idea they would be very weary of your administration and the corrupt people with whom you surround yourself.
Did it occur to you that Glenn Beck viewers and listeners would have most likely been no-shows at their own graduation ceremony? Believing your address would be filled with obsequious platitudes, they would have never expected your attack on America and patriotic Americans.
You seem to believe that dissent is unamerican. Did you forget Thomas Jefferson’s words, ” dissent is the highest form of patriotism?” Sir calling yourself a “Constitutional scholar” is laughable.
Since you brought up Glenn Beck, why not mandate our students listen to him rather than their professors? He’s an excellent teacher, held real jobs in the private sector, and alerted his viewers to the fraud, and deceit of your progressive driven agenda.
“It may make your blood boil. Your mind may not be changed. But the practice of listening to opposing views is essential for effective citizenship,” President Obama said.
You bet it will make their blood boil. With college loans to repay, finding out that their education was provided by those like yourself who have no understanding of free enterprise, gasp, they may become Republicans.
They will be angry Mr. President. Angry with you and your administration that stole their future hopes and dreams while your agenda crushed the economy leaving them and their future children and grandchildren to pay for your wasteful spending and socialist ideology.
Many of the graduates President Obama addressed will soon learn how tough it is to find a job in this economy, driven by his failed economic policies. The share of young Americans out of work is the highest it’s been in more than 50 years.
