True Obama

This interesting article from the American Thinker starts with this thesis statement from author, Robert Huff:

"I have recently come to the conclusion that leftists reveal their innermost thoughts when attacking those with whom they disagree."

How The Left Reveals Itself

Huff goes on to allude to Obama's recent meeting with Republicans, he chastised critics who believe his policies are part of some "Bolshevik plot."

He then wonders, "Why all these czars? Bolshevik plot. Why take over General Motors? Bolshevik plot. Why attack the banks? Bolshevik plot. Why force nationalized health care down our throats? Bolshevik plot. Why attempt to turn the National Endowment for the Arts into a propaganda ministry? Bolshevik plot. And so on and so on. Thank you, Mr. President. The previously nonexistent argument you responded to now exists, and it is a powerful one."

Previously nonexistent argument? I disagree with Huff here. I've been calling Obama a commie since the campaign when it was just talk. I think he's been proving it with his policies since he took office.

It was still a worthwhile read.

I did read it, thank you. I agree with you Cube, it has been obvious since he took over.

I heard that BO is appointing a new commission to investigate
the deficit when he would stimulate the economy right away by cutting taxes on small businesses and lower the payroll tax for many individuals.

BO's heart just isn't into doing what will really improve our economy. He's just going through the motions.

I always go into an argument with a leftist fully prepared to be verbally assaulted within three seconds or less. It's part and parcel of being a moonbat fighter pilot. No surprise there.

Off to hone my skills. Good weekend to the cuberilliacs!

I think one of the interesting points is the bit about racism.

One would be hard pressed to name a conservative who has recently made a racist statement or gesture. Try to list all of those on the left who have just since Obama has taken office.

This is only overt racism. Look at all of the more subtle racist statements that hear on a constant basis, one of which being the accusation that conservatives are racist for opposing anything by Obama. This is racism IMHO.

cube said...

nanc: Yes, nothing brings out the verbal assault from the moonbats faster than throwing facts their way.

Goodweekend to you and all the

cube said...

Chuck: The left gets away with both overt and subtle racism.

They also get a pass when it comes to sexism. Remember Sweetie-Gate when BO dismissed a female reporter's question by calling her Sweetie.

Obama is becoming famous for "responding to arguments no one had made." The MSM never calls him out on the straw man though, big surprise.

cube said...

DaBlade: It isn't just BO. Remember when Hillary came out with the "vast Right wing conspiracy"? It became one of the "big lies" that libs like to promote.

I love when the commies lecture us on taking the wrong path as they have found out.

dmarks said...

We should zero out the funding for the National Endowment for the Arts. We should have done it years ago. We don't need official government-controlled art. Art should be left to the people, to flourish unfettered, not controlled and managed by the government.

cube said...

Jan: It's something they have honed to a fine art by now.

dmarks: I agree. Art should be unfettered from government intervention from either party.

Imagine how the press would've reacted to the Bush admin. trying to turn the National Endowment for the Arts into a propaganda tool for the Republican party. The hue & cry would've reached the far side of Jupiter, but when Obama tried it, it was basically overlooked. There is something way wrong with this picture.
