The Obama Clown Posse

Last edited Mon Sep 1, 2014, 10:08 AM - Edit history (1)

I feel sorry for the insane clown posse, running around with their hair on fire, besmirching and vilifying President Obama. To a point of course.

They debase and demonize a good, competent, accomplished, man who has served this nation in a manner and scope they can never hope to match. Blinded by hyper-partisanship, entitlement, hatred, and a perverted sense of persecution they will never see the good he has done. They have deserted the American People and America's best interests to give aid and comfort to the enemies of prosperity and all that is good and decent.

They self-segregate in the deafening echo chamber of Fox News that resonates and echoes with scurrilous lies, and half-truths. They will never hear of the hope President Obama has given to the uninsured, to the uninsurable with a pre-existing condition, to the working poor, to women striving to be paid as much as a man that performs the same job, to the family broken by a disfunctional immigration policy.

Their leading voices are smug charlatans like Ted Cruz and Bill Kristol, chest thumping chicken-hawks like Bill OíReilly, and Rush Limbaugh, and the queen of snark, Sarah Palin, the Ĺ term Chillbilly, the mean girl of Republican partisanship. Individually and collectively a foul pestilence, and personification of a party that is pinched on both ends. They are unaccomplished, woefully misinformed, shamelessly dishonest, arrogant, angry, and entitled. They are the face of a party that shrinks 2% every 4 years and yet canít find a kind thought in their collective soul to reach out to others who do not share their dyspeptic world view, even for the most selfish of reasons, self preservation.

I see their lives as failures, their politics a farce. They are forced to play at false outrage, lies and low ideals because the truth burns. They don't get it. They never will.

Bitterness plays poorly in history, and wise men don't debase themselves by partaking of it. But like hogs drawn to slop, they sup that bitter cup of foolishness, a vessel filled with the dregs of humanity and overflowing with bile and malice.

9. Their success comes from riding on the coat-tails of big money.

It pays well and good jobs are hard to find.

13. I understand those that make the big money money

it's the idiots to listen to Limbaugh and others that kill me. The party harms them as well yet they are too blind to see that.
