What a change.  Back in the 30’s, the icon of the Democratic party said “We have nothing to fear but fear itself”.  Today, President Obama just piles and heaps and pours and stacks the fear on.  In fact, Obama is saying that it’s pretty much the end of the world IF and only if GOVCO steps in.  Obama is saying that the only way out of this is by Govco. 


So, for all you Liberals out there trying to compare Obama to FDR….if only FDR was here to give another fireside chat and calm all the fears out there instead of Obama playing on them.

    Candidate Obama condemned the “Politics of Fear.”

    President Obama embraces the “Politics of Fear.”

    And his supporters are strangely silent……….

    But as they lie awake at night staring at the ceiling, they wonder where the Obama presidency went so wrong.

    So much hope, so much promise, so much “Yes We Can” now shattered.

    Roland, I have noticed on your last few posts that your nay sayers are all strangly quiet. You have made some very good, concise points and they are not to be found. It makes one wonder if the points you make are so good they have to sigh and agree with you. The great thing is, it’s not really points you are making but just straight out and out fact.

  3. Robin Says:

    Fear indeed. The steps Obama and his party have taken cause fear that our way of life here in America will cease to exist. I fear it will. My children will not have the life I have lived for the last 50 years. I fear my son who will graduate from U of M dental school in May will not find a job. Of course, there is always the military. I fear all my retirement savings (which they all talked us into and gave us incentives to save, yet no one in this country saves so we are told, can’t figure that one out yet) will disappear. For the first time in my life I am afraid of the future. Thank you President Obama.

    I feel bad for my kids. The debt they will be saddled with and the life they will enter into will be so different than things are today. But, then again, I am sure that is what our parents said as well.

    People can say what they want about W..heck I didn’t agree with all of his choices. BUT..I was never afraid as I am NOW!!!! I truely think this guy has NO IDEA what he is doing.

  6. Dan The Man Says:

    Ava, I think that is a very, very good point. As I mentioned in another post, I don’t think he or over Liberals every expected him to be the nominee nor did they really want him to be the nominee.

    I believe that issue with W. was that he surrounded himself with people telling him the best way to go and not following his own ideas and principals. With Obama, I think he is NOT listening to those around him and is just doing what he wants which is our path to Socialism and more “Govco” (as Roland puts it).

  7. theNimrod Says:

    I’m not sure I agree with that, Dan. W certainly surrounded himself with a variety of perspectives, but he was as steadfast to his principles as any man I’ve seen in a position of such scrutiny. It’s what made him so unpopular with the left. He holds views they hate and are too arrogant to accept. Worse, they can’t understand a man like W. They rationalize his unwavering faith, convictions, and honesty-to-a-fault as stupidity and blind stubbornness because they cannot possibly understand it. He’s a very good man, but not a very good politician.

    Obama certainly seems to be driving hard on his convictions towards a socialist democracy, but you can bet that if the political winds shifted, he’d adjust his message. He puts a variety of perspectives around him for show and he talks about honesty and transparency for show. I do believe that he has what he believes are the best intentions in mind. It’s just that he strikes me as a man who is as concerned with image as he is with governing. He’s a good man, but he’s a better politician.

    With W I always felt like he was authentic and genuine. With Obama I feel like he’s trying to sell me something.

  8. Roland Says:

    That is a good point Nimrod. Bush is a good man but not a good politican.

    Maybe reason his naysayers are nowhere to be found is that, like me, they find this blog to be filled with condescending twits who are incapable of intelligent discourse (yes, I do realize the irony of telling someone to participate in intelligent discourse while calling them names, but since I no longer attempt that here, that irony is irrelevant) and only want to masturbate to the words of agreement on the screen. I stopped commenting here many months ago for that reason, and the only reason I do so now is to point out that the hypothesis that your fearless leader has scared us all away may not necessarily be accurate.

    And now, I leave again. Insult me at will. 🙂

  10. Roland Says:

    Interesting girl. I never delete comments from opposing views. I welcome them actually and wish there were more. Sure, I can be sarcastic with some of my responses and maybe you mistook that for being condescending but insulting? I don’t think so. If I was, please point it out and I will apologize.

    Actually, I am trying to refrain from commenting and just posting. It’s tough sometimes but I would rather let others hash out what I posted about. I have enjoyed some of the newcomers, esp Dan and Nimrod but do miss others who don’t post as much anymore.

    One thing I won’t do though is delete comments from those who disagree as a certain college professor would do all the time when I tried to post at his site.

  11. AvaP. Says:

    JTG…..It is interesting to me that whenever there are strong views to the point of severe disagreement, someone always points out that one side is unintelligent. That has always amazed me….I think it is odd to tell someone that because they don’t disagree with you in the manor in which you think they should, they loose intelligent points. Someones opinion has NO barring on how intelligent they are. These blogs are just opinions and I don’t see what everyone gets so wound up about. BTW, JTG, I like to masterbate to words of agreement OFF screen too:) J/K.

    oops..thats baring not barring..a little quick on the keys:)
