Who is Obama?

In My Opinion

J.R. FroelichMay 17, 2012 

His name is Barack Hussein Obama. He was allegedly born Aug. 4, 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The first red flag is that never in the history of the United States of America, has the birth certificate of our president ever been called into question. Another red flag is that it took one of the most powerful men in the world two years to produce an allegedly certified copy.

He has access to our nation's top secrets yet he won't release his college transcripts. Strange.

President Obama kicked off his political career in the home of a convicted Weather Underground anarchist and says he barely knew him. He was swept into the White House promising hope and change and, like any all-American boy, he brought his best friends. Over the past three years he has appointed approximately 40 of his cronies to the title of "Czar," directing many of our most vital departments of government.

Our constitution allows for "officers" appointed by the president with the advise and consent of the Senate. My question is, what the heck is a "Czar" doing in American Government? "Czar" is the Russian word for "Caesar," which is the Roman word for emperor. Since when do we appoint emperors in the United States of America? If one more lame-brained progressive points to any former administration I will strongly suggest where they can put Mr. Obama's "hope and change and no more business as usual in Washington" speech.

Due to limited space, here are just a few of the president's friends he chose to run our nation: Nancy-Ann DeParle, a strong proponent of health care rationing. John Holdren who claims U.S. business has caused world poverty. Cuss Sunstein who wants limited free speech for "common good" and is anti-private gun ownership.

Here are a few who resigned for unethical and perhaps illegal behavior: Carol Browner, the former head of the EPA and a strong anti-gun ownership progressive. Vivek Kundra controlled our public information and monitored private internet emails. An avowed member of the American Communist Party, Anthony "Van" Jones.

These are the people President Obama surrounds himself with. No one should be appalled that those operated under the cloud of illegality were never properly charged. Attorney General Eric Holder is also in the president's pocket and very busy suing several of our states over the definition of the word "illegal."

So, besides tripling our national debt and submitting a budget a few months ago which no one, including Democrats, voted for, what has this glib-tongued, community organizer from Chicago actually done?

As with most recent presidents, Obama has signed many executive orders. That's another way of saying "I'm by-passing the Constitution." Many of them actually sound like they were written by a community organizer however, this past March 16, the president signed the "National Defense Resources Preparedness" order. This gives him control and authority to approve the dispensing of all domestic energy, production, transportation, food, and water supplies as he deems necessary to protect national security ... in peacetime. Simply stated, he can impose martial law whenever he chooses. Of course, no one who went through public school in the last 50 years knows anything about Germany in the 1930s.

Obama tells the opposition to be civil while his lackeys spew vile language without a comment from him. You would think he was the Avenger in the end-zone for the death of Osama bin Laden while giving little credit to the men whose lives were on the line. He really, truly, honestly, loves himself.

Traveling on our dime he recently "raised" $50 million for his campaign from his adoring Hollywood pretenders, rich folks who he wants to reduce to some form of minimum wage. They adore him but not as much as they adore themselves. Lastly, and not the least bit allegedly, our president, pandering to the "still too wet behind the ears" crowd, was crowned by Jimmy Fallon, on national television, as "The Preezy of the United Steezy." Mr. Preezy liked it. That's sleezy.

Put it all together and except for lots of charisma and pretty words, nothing qualified Obama to be our president. His first term in office proves it. Send him packing in November.
