Are the Libs Starting to Get It? Help Black Americans Regain Exceptionalism-Vote for Ben Carson, MD

In short: our president is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval OfficeImage

AMAZING!!! The Cover of Liberal Newsweek Magazine:

Finally, Matt Patterson and Newsweek speak out about 0bama. This is timely and tough. As many of you know, Newsweek has a reputation for being extremely liberal. The fact that their editor saw fit to print the following article about 0bama and the one that appears in the latest Newsweek, makes this a truly amazing event, and a news story in and of itself. At last, the truth about our President and his agenda are starting to trickle through the protective wall built around him by the liberal media….  (HOW ABOUT A “DO-OVER FOR THE 2012 ELECTION?)

I Too Have Become Disillusioned
By Matt Patterson (Newsweek Columnist – Opinion Writer)
Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack 0bama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?

Imagine a future historian examining 0bama’s pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer;” a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, less often did he vote “present”); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as 0bama’s “spiritual mentor;” a real-life, actual terrorist who served as 0bama’s colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?

Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. 0bama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberals to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were ‘a bit’ extreme, he was given a pass. Let that sink in: 0bama was given a pass – held to a lower standard because of the color of his skin.

Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the 0bama phenomenon – affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don’t care if these minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin – that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn’t racism, then nothing is.

And that is what America did to 0bama. True, 0bama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, 0bama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, 0bama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.

What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time 0bama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about 0bama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people – conservatives included – ought now to be deeply embarrassed.

The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that’s when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth – it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years. (An example is his 2012 campaign speeches which are almost word for word his 2008 speeches)

And what about his character? 0bama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. Remember, he wanted the job, campaigned for the task. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerless-ness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. (The other day he actually came out and said no one could have done anything to get our economy and country back on track). But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?

In short: our president is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval Office.

Let’s hear that one more time:

Warning: Only 9 days remain until new provisions of ObamaCare take effect.

With these massive changes coming under ObamaCare, one thing is certain, your healthcare costs will go higher, even as you see fewer doctors, get fewer choices, and have access to fewer medical services.

Some people say ObamaSCare is a government takeover of our healthcare system…

But more accurately it’s a government overhaul of 17% of our economy, with thousands of new provisions, regulations, taxes, fees, and penalties.

It’s not an overstatement to say that healthcare will change for every single person in America!

Most people have no idea that there is a new 40% tax on some healthcare plans or that the “Medicaid Parity Rule” will hurt seniors on Medicare. There are hundreds of other changes to how your healthcare will be defined and delivered.

Fortunately, there’s help to wade through the law and massive regulations . . .

Newsmax wants you to be fully informed so you can not only survive ObamaCare, but thrive under its new rules, mandates, and regulations.

Protect yourself and your family.

Discover the secrets to surviving ObamaCare within the next 3-minutes. Go here now!

A new guide reveals the full truth about the 2,700-plus pages of ObamaCare. It reveals the secrets and loopholes in the new law.

We’re only 9 days away so act today … Hurry — Get Prepared Here.

Are Democrats Dreaming, or do The Rest of us Live in a Nightmare?

For some reason, the photo of the lovey-dovey Obama’s would not print out on this blog.  However, you can picture it.  The caption was filled with some sort of drug induced rhetoric: “Surely those of you so filled with anger can see here Truth and not political manipulation. These two people pictured here are not to blame for the corruption.”

The true caption should be: ”  … blame for the corruption as part of the gang of Chicago Thugs.  They didn’t start it, just figured out how to benefit from it!”
Did you know the democrats registered 10,000,000 new voters, and Obama still  lost almost 8,000,000 votes in 2012 over 2008.

The people responsible for this fiasco are the 3,000,000 republicans that did not vote!  Those 3,000,000 will have to answer to God when called to the other side of the veil!

 

This is from my friends, another Marine and his wife:

Whatever you thought of as your America it was voted out of existence
This is so sad – -but, unfortunately, the facts are true. Can it be reversed? Hard to tell – but we really have to try!

:

Subject: YOU NEED TO READ THIS

A little something to cheer you up.

We’ve been watching de Tocqueville’s words come to fruition for years
now, and now it’s a done deal.  Those with no skin in the game now
control the elections.

I don’t know who wrote the following analysis of the election, but
he’s dead nuts on the money.  America as we know it is gone forever,
and there’s basically no way to take it back.   Is this sour grapes?
I suspect not.  Time will tell.

Alexis de Tocqueville quotes:

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can
only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves
largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority
always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the
public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over
loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average
age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. ? Alexis
de Tocqueville

What a sad day for the America we knew. The greatest experiment in
individual freedom in the history of the world is gone forever. The
40% of non-white Americans and a large portion of the remaining white
women are now only concerned about what is good for them. There is no
understanding of and no regard for how to pay for the overwhelming
costs of their rampant “me”ism. There is no thought of what will
sustain the country. What they thought they voted for will begin to
fail within months.

This election was about a rising tide of immigrants and takers who
foolishly believe that government is a solution and “owes” them
something. Millennia of experiments in government have proven
government is not the solution… it is the problem. A lesson we no
longer teach in school.

Sadly the takers of America now outnumber the makers. Under 1% of the
people under 30 have ever served, under arms, in defense of the
principles of this nation. The other 99% have nothing invested in its
principles and therefore have nothing to lose with its demise. Future
elections will hinge solely on whose vote the government has
purchased, with other people’s money, over the past term of
government.

This is the signal America has sent its government. The people that
remain are blindly trading their individual freedoms for government
handouts and there will be no solution except the fiscal bankruptcy of
America. Yesterday proved it to be morally bankrupt already.

With current energy policy auto fuel will soon be permanently over
$6.00/gal and private aviation will end within 2 years. The cost of
electricity and home heating oil will see similar rises. The
discretionary cash you will have will be halved within two years and
depleted within four years. Your savings funds will seemingly grow by
1%/yr but what they will buy will be cut by 20%/yr.

Within 16 months availability of medical care will be similar to
Canada’s 6 month wait for elective surgeries. Because reimbursement
for medical care will continue to shrink and be further delayed, fewer
and fewer of our brightest minds will elect medicine as their life’s
work.

In Jan of 2014 virtually all physicians will be employees of the
federal government and people who have worked that hard for their
knowledge will simply quit and apply their brain power elsewhere to a
more profitable end. How long will it be before the federal government
comes after your industry?

Sadly those Americans who voted to stay the existing course cannot
understand the ramifications of their decision. USA treasury yields
dropped to the bottom after yesterday’s reelection of Obama. Last
night billions of dollars of business investment money left our
economy for countries where the business environment is more conducive
to growth. Todays currency markets will reflect that with mild
strengthening of the dollar. In a few days the adjustment will have
been made and the dollar will begin to weaken making everything we buy
more expensive.

Investment dollars will leave industry and the jobs it would have
created. Like the Philippines and Greece and other third world
nations, you will soon see our country pass laws which prevent the
externalization of capital. Businessmen will have moved their assets
long before those laws take effect. The dollar will then fail
precipitously on the world currency markets. Within this
administration the USA will soon loose it’s AAA credit rating. The
cost to support our debt will become untenable. The dollar will stop
being the world’s currency and the BRIC nations will take over that
function. Within two years the explosion of inflation, which we
already see, will continue unabated until a loaf of bread is over
$5.00.

I could go on but I will end with the adage my father recited to me
often. “Experience teaches a dear school but a fool can learn in no
other.” The people who most need to read this letter will never get to
this sentence.

Whatever you thought of as your America it was voted out of existence
last night.

7.8% Unemployment = Fuzzy Math! They Think We’re Stupid!

In the light of an incompetent, empty-suited, amateur, debating as a play-acting  president, all of the stops will be pulled out of the democrat closet to end Obama’s slide. However, if you love the USA,  you will not get sucked into this obvious “baloney”, and get behind the candidate that will stop our national slide into the “gulags” of socialism!

Do the democrats think we are stupid to fall for a 3/10 of a point drop in unemployment with the puny new job count of 114,000?  That doesn’t take care of the people graduating from college, forget denting the existing unemployment rate! Even if they claim a re-evaluation of July and August, added 60,000 jobs.  IN FACT, THERE ARE A MILLION LESS PEOPLE WORKING SINCE OBAMA BECAME PRESIDENT.   His puny addition of jobs reflects his poor policies.  For almost 4 years we have watched the slight job numbers move the statistics a 0.1 or so each month.  Now, all of a sudden, even if the additional 60,000 is added on to the 114,000, it doesn’t add up to 3/10 of a point.

In fact, several economists reported in the Wall Street Journal that we would see a job number of 113,000 in September.  The numbers indicated that would leave unemployment at 8.2%. So, how did we come up with the 7.8%?  I can’t give you all of the facts, but I’m sure you’ll hear the rest of the story soon enough!  To answer the question, here’s how:

 

Obama has the sight of an eagle but the vision of a clam!

There are a number of ways unemployment is measured. All of the various other measures  show unemployment remains         the same in September as they were in August and July.
However, there is a new method (or maybe not so new), that depends on collecting survey data by phoning some thousands
of business and homes.  The 7.8 % is based on the survey, not any of the usual indicators!  When I was in the work place, and also in my education in Communication Arts, we learn that survey’s can be easily manipulated.

Here’s how: you do your first several  thousand surveys.  The data doesn’t come out exactly as you would like.  Let us say originally the data showed things remained the same at 8.2%.  So you move your survey to Northern Virginia and North Dakota where unemployment is less than 4% (considered full employment) . Do a few more surveys and mix the numbers where we have
full employment in with the original 8.2% numbers and voila! NOW WE HAVE 7.8%!

You don’t have to believe me, but if you are honest with yourself you know the national economic picture is as bleak as it has been for the last 4 years. (Yes, I include Bush, but recognize his handicap with the democrats controlling both houses of Congress his last two years.)

We no longer need to feel Romney isn’t doing the job! I have been critical, thinking he should do more! However,  his performance will remain consistent.  I expect in the next two debates Obama will do better, but Romney will do as well as he did in the first.  Romney obviously is the most presidential candidate we’ve had in many years.  He is focused on fixing our national problems!  He is sincere and honest!  If you know anything about him you will know his main desire in life is to serve others. Our youth need an example like Romney to emulate, not Jay Zee and the other “rappers” Obama likes to pal around with.

We have been hearing about the airing of this documentary for months, and it did not happen.   Maybe Bill Clinton has it right this time and the documentary will be broadcast.
2016-The Movie – SUNDAY NIGHT 9:00 pm Eastern/8:00 pmCentral October 7, 2012
Fox News is going to air the documentary Obama 2016.
HEADS UP For This Sunday Night 9:00 PM
TO ALL AMERICANS, DEMOCRAT, REPUBLICAN, INDEPENDENTS RIGHT OR LEFT.
SUNDAY NIGHT – VERY IMPORTANT.    This Coming Sunday —
Set Your DVR for the Fox News channel at  9:00 PM
Eastern. Maybe this is why the White House has been
discounting FOX.  Sounds like this could be history in
the making someone may go down – either Obama or Fox
News.  It may be that Fox has been holding this
information back due to the sensitivity of it and out of
courtesy.  But, Obama has taken on Fox and it appears
they are ready to spill the ugly beans of truth about
the background of this individual who has had an
extremely radical past. This

Sunday,  Fox News is going
to air a very important documentary about  Barack Obama,
Sunday night at 9P.M. Eastern.

The report will go back to Obama’s earlier days, showing
even then his close ties to radical Marxist professors,
friends, spiritual advisers, etc.
It will also reveal details about his ties to Rev.
Wright for 20+ years, i.e., how he was participating
with this man, and not for the reasons he stated.

The report has uncovered more of Obama’s radical past
and we will see things that no one in the  media is
willing to put out there.  It will be a segment to
remember. Mark your calendar and pass this on to
everyone you know:  Sunday night, 8 PM CT; 9 PM ET.
Democrat or Republican, this report will open your eyes
to how YOUR country is being sold down the road to
Totalitarian Socialism.  If you care about the direction
of our country, pass this notice on to everyone you
know.

 

  PLEASE PASS IT ON….

Hello world!

We are a couple of people very interested in the election of 2012.  Lili grew up in communist Yugoslavia.  She know first hand the pitfalls and shortcomings of socialism.  Al has been interested in Mitt Romney since the primaries of 2008.  He believes Mitt is the most competent person to ever run for the highest executive office in the USA.

Mitt’s history is one of success after success.  If young people want a great role model, it would be someone with the clean, effective, and successful history of a Mitt Romney.  He built his wealth without a hint of scandal!  He raised a strong, vibrant, productive family.  He is moral and accomplished.

I hope he picks Allen West as his  Vice Presidential running mate.  Allen is everything Mitt Romney is, except without the wealth.  A great, successful person. A military hero!  That would be an unbeatable ticket and you know the democrats would not know how to defeat such a strong slate!

We want this blog to be a clearing house for all opinions.  The above offers ours, and as we present various positions, facts and more opinions that we hold, we want others to share their thoughts even if they disagree with us.  We hope amateurVScompetent will be a clearing house for many ideas, jokes and serious offerings about the election of 2012.  In 2004 we spent a lot of time trying to keep John Kerry from winning the Presidency.  Traveling to Washington, DC to attend the anti-Kerry rally, and appearing on Vietnamese media to explain our objection to Kerry.  Al is a Vietnam veteran, and grew up in Massachusetts and never felt comfortable with Kerry’s claims of heroism or his performance as a Massachusetts politician.  If George Bush had a few shortcomings, Kerry was a Fort Knox vault full of them.

We are not perfect, but as normal citizens we can spot the biggest bull-crapper in the corral. Compared to Kerry, Bush was a  lot more preferable!  In 2012 we detect a con-man in Barack Hussein Obama. While he certainly knows how to campaign he has proven to be a very poor administrator.  Meanwhile, so far, we find Mitt Romney a very poor campaigner, and hope he gets better.  However, we know from his history he is an excellent administrator. We are all in for Romney, and hope we can help undecided people to see what we see in him.

So, we will be blogging here often, and hope many of you will also share your ideas, both pro and con.

Sincerely,

Al and Lili

Happy blogging!
