In the last couple of days, the news has come out that the President has released a list of some private citizens who have donated to Mitt Romney’s campaign.  According to the Wall Street Journal article, these donors were demonized and made to sound criminal, though they have committed no crimes.  The idea is to make Mitt Romney look bad by making those who contribute to him look bad.

President Obama isn’t the first president to use this tactic.  Richard Nixon did it too.  However, after the outrage the American people expressed at such techniques, those who followed Nixon chose not to do the same.  Until now.

Look, I can’t really fault President Obama for looking at those who donate and support Mitt Romney.  I don’t think the actions of these donors are anything bad, and neither do many Republicans.  But, I do believe it is a fair and reasonable thing to do to look at the people supporting a candidate.  So that begs the question:  Who is looking into Obama’s donors and supporters??

If we follow the President’s reasoning, we could certainly tell a lot about Barack Obama by those who support him and donate to his campaign.  Now, the mainstream media didn’t do this in 2008, and likely won’t do it this year either.  And because they weren’t willing to vet Obama, we ended up with someone in the White House who works to lead the United States into a socialist country, and calls the Constitution a “charter of negative liberties.”  Because they weren’t willing to vet Obama, we have someone in the White House who has contempt toward those who are financially successful (never mind his millions).  Because they weren’t willing to vet Obama, we have someone in the White House who believes capitalism and free market principles are evil.  Since the mainstream media, which the majority of Americans watch and listen to and believe, will not do the job they should, the rest of us have to.

So, let’s take a look at some of those who support Obama and contribute to his campaign.  If we are to judge Romney by that, let’s do the same for Obama.

Here are some of his supporters, in no particular order.

     
Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn:  Married, college    professors, and once leaders of the domestic terrorist group The Weather Underground.  They were responsible for many bombings in the 1960’s and 1970’s, including a New York City police station and the US Capitol Building.  In an article that appeared, ironically, on September 11, 2001, in the New York Times, Bill Ayers, stated:  “I don’t regret setting bombs, I feel we didn’t do enough.”  REALLY?!  The Weather Underground did some absolutely awful things.  Too many to list here.  Look them up, then ask yourself if the President of the United States should have these people in his close circle.  (Oh, did I      mention, Obama began his political career IN THE HOME OF AYERS AND DOHRN?) The Weather Underground was also part of Students for a Democratic Society.  Look them up too.  No good.

     Jeremiah Wright:  Reverend, Pastor Emeritus at Trinity United Church – the church the Obama’s attended for over 20 years, anti-American, anti-Semite.  The man who married the Obama’s and baptized their two daughters, Reverend Wright has not been shy with his hateful remarks (this is just one, out of many examples).   One must ask themselves why it is that our President attended this man’s church for 20 years and how he could sit for 20 years in the pews and not come away with some of the same beliefs espoused by the Reverend Wright?  Look it up, see what he’s said, then ask yourself if the President of the United States should be associating with someone like that.

Louis Farrakhan:  Leader of the Nation of Islam, anti-American, anti-Semitic.  He has consistently been hateful toward Israel and Jewish people and the United States.  This is not the kind of person the President of the United States should be associating himself with.  Look him up too, and ask yourself why Barack Obama would be associating with this man.

Raul Castro:  Brother of Fidel Castro and leader of Communist Cuba.  Don’t you feel better knowing a Communist dictator supports having Barack Obama for our President?

Daniel Ortega:  President of Nicaragua, devout Marxist.  Yet another winner of a leader supporting our President.  Makes you wonder why Communists and Marxists would be supporting him, doesn’t it?

Sean Penn:  Hollywood actor, outspoken activist and Socialist.  Sean Penn has made clear where he sits on the political spectrum and it is so very far to the left.  He has played buddy buddy with Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez (also a communist) and former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro (also a communist).  He spouts hateful anti-American rhetoric, yet stays loyal to President Obama.  What is going on there?

Other groups supporting President Obama:  Socialist Party USA, Communist Party Illinois (among others), the New Black Panther Party (a very violent group), and Hamas (an Islamic terrorist group).

These are just some of his supporters.  I haven’t even begun on who actually works in the White House under this President.

I think it is time the country woke up and saw President Obama for what he really is.  You really need to ask yourself why are these anti-American people supporting Barack Obama?  What do they know about him and why would they want him to be in control of the White House?  Educate yourself.  Don’t just follow blindly what the media tells you about Obama.

President Obama wants to look at Mitt Romney’s supporters, that’s just fine with me.  But I will surely do the same with President Obama’s.

I want to share a fable with you, from Aseop. 

The Dog and The Wolf

    There one was a Wolf so skinny that he was nearly dead with hunger.  He met a Dog who lived in a house in town. 

    The Dog saw the Wolf was near death.  “Dear Wolf,” said the Dog, “your wild life will be the end of you.  Why not work as I do, and get your food given to you each day?”

    “I would be willing to try anything,” said the Wolf, “if I could just get a place to live and something to eat.”

    “I can take care of that for you,” said the Dog.  “Come with me to my master and you can share my work.” 

    As the Wolf and Dog made their way to the town, the Wolf saw that the hair on the Dog’s neck was worn very thin. 

    “Dear Dog,” said the Wolf.  “Why is the hair on your neck worn so thin that your skin shows?” 

    “Oh, it’s nothing.  Don’t worry about that,” said the Dog.  “That is just the place where my master puts the collar on my neck each night.  After supper, I am chained.  You will get used to it.” 

    “Is that what it costs to eat every day?” said the Wolf.  “Then good-bye, Friend Dog.  I would rather starve and be free.” 

 

Many people in this country are much like the Wolf at the beginning when he says, “I would be willing to try anything if I could just get a place to live and something to eat.”  We are tired of things the way they are and so we are looking for “change.”  But at what cost?  Anything?  Our freedom?  The Wolf learned, before it was too late.  But, sadly, I don’t think I can see the same for many of my fellow Americans.  Most people won’t figure it out until it is too late, and the “hair on their necks are worn so thin that their skin shows.” 

We are watching our freedoms slip slowly away, ever so slightly.  The Constitution is being disregarded at an alarming rate!  I hope people wake up before we are saying, “Oh, it’s nothing.  You will get used to it.”

 

I found this great article by David Limbaugh today about Obama.  Clearly Obama is a Socialist, as this other astue blogger points out.  Socialism is evil!  I just wish I could trust McCain not to go down the socialism road, too.  But, alas, I cannot.

Accountability?????

 

Many of you know I’m not completely on board with the Republicans or President Bush, but, I am so sick and tired of them getting the blame for everything.  This is astounding and ridiculous!  I really wish people would get all the information before they start passing the blame around.  This is in no way me showing support for McCain; I just want people to be held accountable. 

Now, we are in the middle of a mess.  Where is the accountability?

Can anyone say secret combination?
