— Joe Biden, on January 31, 2007, describing fellow candidate Barack Obama. The remark was made the same day Biden filed the official paperwork to launch his presidential campaign. Biden later apologized and said the remark was taken out of context.
This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal.
-Barack Hussein Obama, June 3, 2008, Nomination Speech, Democratic National Convention, St. Paul, Minnesota
…Obama meets the Kennedy standard not only in substance; he also has its style and public appeal.
In 1961, Time magazine named JFK man of the year, after a tough election battle with GOP candidate Richard Nixon.
The article read: “The closeness of his victory did not disturb him; he took over the office with a youth-can-do-anything sort of self-confidence. He learned better; but learn he did. And in so doing,” the article says, he made 1961 “the most endlessly interesting and exciting presidential year within recent memory.”
Ted Sorensen, a former special counsel and adviser to President Kennedy, says there’s no question about the similarities between the two.
“Both of them were compassionate and cared about the people at the bottom of the economic pyramid. … Both Kennedy and Obama, by spending time abroad during their youth … gave both of them a very good perspective of Americans’ role in the world. … Both of them were innovators.”
And it’s with those characteristics that Sorensen says Obama has lined himself up with the ideals of the Kennedy clan and has become a “natural fit.”
Both Obama and Kennedy “reached out to young people; tried to get them involved in politics and government after a period of cynical indifference on the part of young people,” Sorensen said. “Both Kennedy and Obama … were idealists … and paid less attention to the old politics and won by paying attention to the new politics.”

Thus began the fable of America’s First Black President (second, if you count Bill Clinton). A man predetermined by his handlers, the Democratic Power Brokers, the Liberal unwashed, and the Main Stream Media to be infallible and untouchable…the new messiah.
What was proclaimed to be the story of King Arthur and the Round Table wound up being Hansel and Gretel, with average Americans being the children being cooked by the wicked witch (insert your own Pelosi joke here).
With the aid of his previously-mentioned Amen Corner, and a Democratic Majority in both houses of Congress, he succeeded in forcing the Golden Goose to lay a whopper of an egg…a multi-trillion dollar law socializing, and destroying at the same time, the greatest Healthcare System on the face of the Earth.
(I have my ice floe picked out. Do you?)
Advertised before his election to be the new Great Communicator, and blasphemously compared to Ronald Wilson Reagan, he soon proved to be lost without TOTUS (the Teleprompter of the United States), even carrying it with him to speak to schoolchildren.
During his First Term, especially after the stunning rebuke by the American people in the Midterm Elections of 2010, Obama soon proved to be a divisive, perpetually campaigning president, taking up the mantle of class warfare, by blaming America’s wealthy (you know them, the folks who hire us.) for his horrible economic policies.
His Foreign Policy wasn’t any better. Obama embraced our enemies and alienated our friends. Then, this new Nero watched while the Middle East burned in a Radical Muslim Ode to Spring.
Shortly before the election, Obama’s horrible Foreign Policy led to the deaths of 4 brave Americans, including an Ambassador, one murderous night at the U.S. Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya.
By obfuscation, subterfuge and downright lying, Obama and his Administration have hidden the truth about that night until this day.
Obama succeeded in getting re-elected, due to a poor campaign strategy by the Republicans, and “voting irregularities” and bribery, orchestrated by Baracky Clause and his loyal Democratic Elves.
Once Obama was re-inaugurated, he doubled down on his divisive brand of class warfare-Marxist-Chicago Politics, further dividing the nation he was supposed to be serving.
Now, less than 5 months into his Second Term, not only has Obama and his Administration’s malfeasance concerning Benghazigate become a scandal, but, news that Attorney General Eric Holder was wiretapping the Associated Press, Fox News, and who Know who else, has come to light.
But, wait…there’s more!
Additionally, the Internal Revenue Service, under President Barack Hussein Obama, harrassed, probed, and generally messed with hundreds of Conservative Groups seeking Nonprofit Status.
In response to all of this, Obama announced that there was going to be a thorough investigation…headed by Attorney General Eric Holder.
Holder himself is going to launch a “charm offensive”.
(A lot of us find his charm offensive.)
Holder also, on behalf of the most transparent Administration evah, summoned the Main Stream Media to a Closed Doors Meeting, so that he could “clean the air”.
(A Transparent Closed Door Meeting…is that like a Jumbo Shrimp?)
To summarize…what began as a shining New Camelot…now consists of a bunch of tarnished empty suits of armor and an overbearing stench from the stables.
Until He Comes,
