Be it far from me to claim to be a political expert or anything like that. Honestly, I don’t believe anyone is. But I am an American. And I have something to say about everything. That’s why you [five or six] people keep coming back here every other week.
I’ve always wondered why, if it isn’t his skin color, what is it about President Barack H. Obama people don’t like? Keep in mind, barely anyone knew about him before he ran for president. So for those who claimed earlier on that they “don’t like his politics” that argument falls dead to me immediately. I was in Warner Robins, Georgia when he was elected… people there were saying they were going to move to Canada if he was elected! The same thing people are saying now coincidentally. Aside from the regular unkept promises Obama and all the other presidents in the history of the United States of America have made, what is it that have people being so hateful towards him, his wife, and his entire family?
As what I’m sure had to be the worst 8 years of his fucking life come to a screeching hault, I wonder if he feels it was all worth it. Does he feel he did in fact make a change? Does he feel the Obama legacy will reign as an overall positive or negative one? Will his hair ever turn black again? How will his daughters turn out because of all this? If President Obama wasn’t simply part of “The System” the entire time, how will the rest of his life play out?
I have to say, I’m not necessarily an Obama supporter, but I have always admired his poise. People overseas love Barack Obama. Mostly BECAUSE he isn’t white. But as some of my new Turkish buddies have reaffirmed, he’s just not strong-willed enough. They mostly claim they’d love to have Obama as a friend, but as a leader, he doesn’t instill enough fear.
I feel that attitude is a bit disturbing, however, I’ve always felt people don’t respect what they don’t fear.
Iraqi’s respected Saddam Hussein. Because he was a FUCKING KILLER! For fear of being killed, he won obedience. Am I saying that’s the way things should go? Of course not, it’s just an example.
President Duterte, from The Philippines… another killer! But atleast he only kills criminals. So, he has respect! From normal, good, law-abiding citizens and especially criminals!
Vladimir Putin. Well, we get the pattern.
Anyway, Obama, if he has had people killed, which let’s face it, every American President has had people killed in one way or another… But Obama isn’t known for being a murderer; is more known for:
*The validity of his birth certificate
*Running away from conflicts in Syria and Egypt etc…
*Not being hard enough on Daesh “ISIS/ISIL”
*Having a hot wife
*Being a “Chocolate Baboon” [-Unkle Ruckus]
You’ll never please everyone, Obama! Some people were pissed at you for not going into Syria, just after people were bashing you for not bringing troops home from Afghanistan in an unreasonable timeline. Some people were getting pissed at the IDEA of you going into Syria. “Let people deal with their own problems!” They say.
The refugee situation. You were bashed for that. And the people who were in support of it, mostly gave credit to their State Governers, not you.
Every presidential term, presidents are credited for things they had very little to do with. People still say “When Bush got Saddam” as if George Bush EVER stepped foot into Iraq as a combatant. But you better shut your mouth if you ever say Obama got Bin Laden! No, Seal Team 6 [or whatever] got Bin Laden. I bet not one of you can tell me the unit which captured Saddam in that little underground crawl space.
Nope? Didn’t think so.
That’s right, because it was Bush! LoL.
For the past 8 years, it’s been “Thanks, Obama.” “Thanks a lot, Obama.” “NoBama” this, “Frobama” that. If someone trips over a fucking curb, it’s Obama’s fault. But when the gas prices went down it’s “Obama has nothing to do with the gas prices.” The differences of opinion on matters involving this poor guy are uncanny.
Even today, you can go online and see a picture of Michelle Obama, our P.H.A.T. 1st lady, doing something honorable, like playing basketball with kids, or endorsing a healthier food program at public schools, or doing an SNL skit lol… and people will get into a rage! The netnerds over the past few years just hate the sight of anything having anything to do with Obama!” Just read the comments! There was a picture of the couple on LinkedIN… LINKEDIN!!!! The supposed professional social network; showing them dressed in formal wear. You wouldn’t believe some of the hateful comments that were made about them on this supposed professional networking site. Some people just don’t like him… and they can’t think of one real good reason why. But it’s never because he’s a porch monkey.
– Barack Obama isn’t American.
– Barack Obama is the anti-Christ [my personal favorite]
– Michelle Obama is a hermaphrodite
– The Obama girls are pothead whores
– Barack Obama is a Muslim [and they all say this as if it’s something which should be looked down upon, or disqualify him from being president!]
– Barack Obama wants to put HFRID tags under our skin
– Obama only won because he’s black
– OBAMA STARTED RACISM IN AMERICA
That last one isn’t a joke. It’s real. It’s been said on T.V. by a spokesperson for Trump, and said more times than I care to remember by random netnerds. The hatred for this man… it’s so real. And in the grand scheme of things, he’s really been no better or worse of a politician than anyone else who wasn’t impeached or assissinated.
What I want to know is, was it all worth it? I certainly hope, someone asks him that before his days are over. I’d love to ask him myself. Because the fact is, to me, his main objective was change. And between intializing the GREAT IDEA of “The Affordable Healthcare Act”, and him being the first black president, he did just that.
Scream at me, Obama!
