My Obama is losing. Those words came across my message screen from a worried reader in Brazil. But it might have been from Kenya, Uganda or from one of the billions of citizens across the world that are hoping for the president to be re-elected. As in past years, the world is confused by the American election system. Simply put, most do not understand why the president would be in a virtual dead heat with Republican Mitt Romney after all that Obama has done as president
Comments: This pathetic piece is by some third world writer with a third world menatlity who has accepted all the third world excuses by our third world president.
If race were an issue, Obama would never have been elected. Why do people have trouble believing that voters can be against him because of his policies? Also, having a 70% illegitimacy rate has more to do with poverty in the black community than race.
Fact is, people in the third world get their information about the USA from our very own lame-stream media, mostly CNN international. They never see Fox News or hear Rush or Mark Levin. So you may forgive the writer of the article - but it's still not worth reading.
Well, no, he did not save the auto industry nor the financial industry. And white Americans knew he was 1/2 black when they voted for him 4 yrs ago, now they just don't like his policies and he's still 1/2 black.
Actually, these constant knee-jerk, last-chance, desperate charges of racism are killing Obama. Undecideds and moderates see this constant nonsense coming from Obama's supporters, and they know it's BS-- so they start realizing that everything about Obama could be BS, too. And it is!
According to the writer, America has problems. Using too much gas, water, whites have a higher income than blacks, and too many blacks and hispanics in prison. So we should all listen to him and
1) Reduce automobile use. Walk to work. 2) Reduce water use. No more showers. 3) Reduce the income of white households and give the money to black households 4) Free black and hispanic prisoners, leaving the white prisoners in jail
"Today, America has a black president. To many voters, that means that the race issue has been erased. Last year, however, the number of African Americans living under poverty hit the highest number in 52 years — 27.4 per cent."
Maybe it got worse because Obama is incompetent? It has gotten worse for everyone, white, black etc.
White peoples median income is 20 times that of african-americans? Ok. That would make the african-american median income about $2500 or $200 a month. It's all slavery's fault and George Bush of course.
Posted because I think it's important to understand the mentality conservative America is up against. The person who wrote this (like 0bama) thinks he is an intellectual . . .and there are many of them.
Every, every strain of argument contained within this article comes from the old Pravda; each move, pathetic, ethical, or logical, was part of their playbook in this exact mode of application to the decadent West (no need to discriminate much among states or cultures). So note and then disregard.
OP, I believe Randall Smith is American. I know when I go abroad, I find many articles like this in foreign publications, written by Americans and bad mouthing our country. Their work is one reason foreigners have such a distorted view of the USA. The fact that they are Americans lends them a credibility that they do not deserve.
I googled around a bit #20 and believe you're right. If he's not a third world idiot, he's certainly a traitor and propagandist. In any event his style appeals to a mind foreign to the free press or American values.
The only reason Obama is in this game at all at this point is because of his race. Affirmative Action is in play here, due to white guilt. Take away that, and he would be so far gone it wouldn't even be funny.
This article is remarkable in that it eliminates facts from the text, promotes false narratives about racism, and shows incredible bias and dishonesty in his handling of the current election issues. FAIL!
President Barack Obama and his family will spend Christmas in Hawaii again this year, and are expected to stay in the same beachfront Kailua neighborhood where they´ve spent the past five year-end holidays. Hawaii News Now reports the Obamas are expected to arrive around Dec. 20 and stay until Jan. 5. While Obama typically spends a lot of time at the nearby Marine Corps Base Hawaii at Kaneohe Bay, working out in the gym and playing golf, he does tend to venture out to the same local businesses each trip. Among his favorites are Island Snow and Buzz´s Original Steakhouse in Kailua,
On a break from pretending to believe they live in a country bristling with violent white racists, the Non-Fox Media have been trying to debunk stories about the "Knockout Game," in which young black males approach random strangers and try to knock them out with one punch. The left´s leading line of defense against the Knockout Game is to argue that young black males have always been violent, so, hey, this is nothing new. You´re welcome, black America! In Slate, Emma Roller wearily recounted other episodes of black-on-white violence in order to announce: "The ´Knockout Game´ is a myth." Reminiscing about the flash mobs
CASPER, Wyo. — The Power Company of Wyoming plans to apply next month for a federal permit that will allow the firm to kill a limited number of eagles every year at its planned Chokecherry-Sierra Madre wind farm in Carbon County. The decision of the Denver-based developer to seek what is known as an “eagle-take permit” from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reflects what may be the beginning of a trend, industry observers said. Fish and Wildlife has never granted a take permit to a wind developer, but is currently considering several applications, said Dave Carlson, National Environmental Protection
President Obama has declared his renewed commitment to fighting income inequality. But we now have five years of evidence to draw upon, and it’s clear that Obama’s methods in this regard have failed miserably. In fact, they’ve worked about as well as Obamacare. Obama’s approach to addressing income inequality, of course, is to funnel ever more money and power to Washington, while promoting a culture of cozy cronyism between Big Government and Big Business (especially Big “Green” Business). When having a well-positioned team of Washington lawyers and lobbyists becomes a necessary prerequisite to getting ahead, that’s hardly conducive to Main St.
CHAMBLEE, Ga. -- One Saturday in November, Kaveh Kamooneh drove his Nissan Leaf to Chamblee Middle School, where his 11-year-old son was playing tennis. Kamooneh had taken the liberty of charging the electric car with an exterior outlet at the school. Within minutes of plugging in the car, he says a Chamblee police officer appeared. "He said that he was going to charge me with theft by taking because I was taking power, electricity from the school," Kamooneh said. Kamooneh says he had charged his car for 20 minutes, drawing about a nickel´s worth of juice. Don Francis of Clean Cities Atlanta, an
Recently, a prominent Massachusetts Democrat spotted Senator Elizabeth Warren at an airport and saw an opportunity. Have you read The New Republic, Philip W. Johnston asked Warren playfully, showing her the cover of the magazine he had just purchased. It was devoted to whether Warren would run for president. Warren wasn’t having any of it. She answered with an exaggerated eye roll that cut short any further talk of the 2016 presidential race. “She doesn’t want to talk about it in any serious way,” said Johnston, a supporter. On Wednesday, Warren became so sick of media speculation that she might run as a populist
COLLEGE PARK, Md.-- D-Day arrived for Obamacare Saturday and it began with an 11-hour shutdown of the website. The system is functioning a bit better than before but is still terribly inadequate. Applications are in limbo -- many already initiated are stalled, lost or otherwise can´t be completed. Applicants eligible for subsidies must use the website, or HealthCare.org paper alternatives that can´t handle the volume and the system often can´t verify applicants´ eligibility for aid. Overall, the website still fails to complete the enrollment process for many who try. Website software to get insurance companies paid subsidies isn´t functioning and
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
