Obama’s Base Is Well-Named

With every word he utters, with every action he takes, we hear that Obama is playing to his base. Whether he’s extending unemployment benefits, increasing the number of people receiving food stamps; cutting the interest rate for student loans; giving a pass to illegal aliens; promoting public and private sector unions; funding Planned Parenthood; supporting same-sex marriages; and refusing to prosecute the Black Panthers, it’s all done for the sole purpose of energizing the nitwits who elected him in 2008. It’s unintended irony when people refer to Obama’s base because among the word’s multiple definitions are “morally reprehensible; lacking dignity; mean-spirited; selfish; and cowardly.” That pretty much sums up those who are willing to turn a blind eye to Obama’s war on capitalism and his promotion of class, race and gender warfare, so long as his groupies receive their puny little bribes.

It’s unintended irony when people refer to Obama’s base because among the word’s multiple definitions are “morally reprehensible; lacking dignity; mean-spirited; selfish; and cowardly.” That pretty much sums up those who are willing to turn a blind eye to Obama’s war on capitalism and his promotion of class, race and gender warfare, so long as his groupies receive their puny little bribes.

Just a few of the inconvenient truths these weasels are willing to overlook are: one, that Obama’s agenda will inevitably slaughter the golden goose; two, that his profligacy is sending America spiraling into bankruptcy; and, three, that his gutting of the military ultimately diminishes our nation’s influence in world affairs, where it has traditionally served as a bulwark against the evils of communism, Nazism and Islamic terrorism. Such vital matters aren’t even a blip on their collective radar.

Although I have often likened left-wingers as termites and rodents, Obama’s supporters more closely resemble parasites mindlessly devouring their host.

Because those who join Alcoholics Anonymous and successfully attain sobriety must first agree to turn their lives over to a Higher Power, I have long wondered if it would work as well with those poor souls who have gotten intoxicated on the fermented Kool-Aid of liberalism. The problem, of course, is that they would first have to wise up and quit picturing Barack Hussein Obama hovering over us mere mortals.

Speaking of hovering, because Obama has long made a practice of surrounding himself with dunces like Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett and Katherine Sebilius, in order to appear intelligent, and dwarves like Timothy Geithner, Barbara Boxer and Henry Waxman, in order to appear taller, he’s going to have his work cut out for him when it’s time to debate Romney. For one thing, he’s not as bright as his opponent and he’s certainly not as good-looking, and, without his Teleprompter, he’s about as spell-binding as Porky Pig. As if all that isn’t bad enough, he’s shorter than Romney. That’s why I’m betting he will be wearing elevator shoes for the event and perhaps an earpiece into which David Axelrod can feed him his lines.

Although I am still confident that Mitt Romney will win the election, I find it annoying that even after three years of this administration’s lies and incompetence, Obama remains personally popular with so many people. I mean, even if you support his policies, as apparently many people do, why is it that more people aren’t turned off by his obvious arrogance, narcissism and hypocrisy? I mean, if you had neighbors, in-laws or people in your workplace, who shared those qualities, I’m sure most normal people would go out of their way to avoid them.

In spite of all that, according to the polls, Obama is running neck-to-neck with a genuinely decent guy like Romney. I’m afraid that says less about Obama than it does about the typical American voter.

On top of everything else, Obama wants to condemn Romney for being wealthy, although he is not as wealthy as such Obama supporters as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, David Letterman, Oprah Winfrey, Barbra Streisand or George Soros.

Obama condemns Romney for outsourcing American jobs, even though the liberal Washington Post points out that’s an outright lie, while Obama has personally overseen the out-sourcing of billions of American tax dollars to such places as China, Finland and Brazil.

Whether it’s because of his traumatic upbringing or his later political influences, which, by his own admission, included racists, radicals and communists, I sincerely believe that Obama has several screws loose.

So when I say “Screw him!” it’s hardly my intention to insult the alleged leader of the free world. I’m only suggesting that the White House handyman should get busy tightening up those loose nuts before Obama comes completely unglued.
