Moron“Is our children learning?”  This famous grammatically challenged question posed by ex-President Bush, the child who was left behind, has been granted renewed significance thanks to President Obama’s unprecedented impertinence to think, as President, he can talk to our children.

Well, unprecedented if you don’t count Bush and Reagan, FDR, etc..

So The President of ALL Americans wants to speak with children in the country of which he is President and tell them to give back to their nation, stay in school and be productive citizens.

And Republicans are outraged that he would try to act like the leader of our nation. The gall! Just like the Kenyan Marxist Socialist Friend of a Terrorist he is.

Remember the GOP outrage at the set decoration for Pres. Obama’s acceptance speech? “Columns!!!”

Remember the GOP outrage about Pres. Obama wanting dijon mustard on his hamburger?

Remember the GOP outrage at Pres. Obama saying “tomahto” and not “tomayto”?

If you think about it, the GOP is now the political equivalent of a nasty, old senile man yelling at the kids to get off its lawn and  complaining about how the world is “going to hell in a hand basket”. Change is bad and everyone should do as he says instead of doing what they want.

If only the GOP had run a presidential candidate that really represented what they are.

Just add “opposing children being educated” to the growing list of things Republicans oppose out of spite that a black man is president:

TOP 10 LIST OF THINGS REPUBLICANS OPPOSE:

1. Affordable health care for all Americans

2. Deodorant

3. Encouraging their children to stay in school and contribute to society

4. The “theory” of gravity

5. Trying to bring the country out of recession

6.  Limits on Corporate Execs’ building forts in their offices out of piles of taxpayer money.

7. Gay Marriage

8. Straight Marriage

9. Abortion

10. Paying for health care for children who aren’t aborted

I’m not the first to point this out but for your viewing pleasure, Groucho Marx now will sing the GOP platform:

For those who prefer to read the lyrics:

I don’t know what they have to say,
It makes no difference anyway,
Whatever it is, I’m against it.
No matter what it is or who commenced it,
I’m against it.

Your proposition may be good,
But let’s have one thing understood,
Whatever it is, I’m against it.
And even when you’ve changed it or condensed it,
I’m against it.

I’m opposed to it,
On general principle, I’m opposed to it.

[chorus] He’s opposed to it.
In fact, indeed, that he’s opposed to it!

[Groucho]
For months before my son was born,
I used to yell from night to morn,
Whatever it is, I’m against it.
And I’ve kept yelling since I first commenced it,
I’m against it!

it’s nice to see everyone here accepts the reality of the influence of racism in the criticism of obama’s administration. people want to focus their anger at him, even when the source of their frustration is elsewhere.

the ignorance of this nation is increasing dramatically. the vicious cycle of h.s. dropout – unexpected pregnancy – children raised in poverty to become h.s. dropouts has had a few cycles over the last two decades. the nation is filled with people who cannot think rationally for themselves; but rather are trained that the television is their source of “truth”. of course, the educated know this is hardly the case.

education reform is absolutely crucial to restoring our nation. otherwise, we truly are destined for banana republic status. the rich will be in their gated communities while the rest of us fight over trans fats and hi-fructose corn syrup.

The GOP is on negativity overdrive. It’s their only hope for regaining power.

If our press and commentators would discuss these ridiculous tactics as power strategies rather than struggling to frame them as legitimate concerns from a loyal opposition, I’d have a lot more respect for our political dialogue. It’s hard for me to take these things seriously. It stuns me when the pundits do.

Ignorant, delusional and downright unchristian, hell, they “is” so proud of it too, wear it like a badge of honour and want the same for their kids. So who’s the moron now?

The president always had the vision to realize that there are three pillars to bringing this country back to a sustainable economy and nation in general.

Healthcare Reform.
Energy Independence.
Education Reform.

That’s one reason it’s a pet peeve of my that Huffy and too many progressives are stuck on this financial crisis. Banks will NEVER be bastions for progressives. Even in the most socialist European countries like France banks are geared to the common folk.

The three pillars I mentioned are progressive values and as long as we let our outrage distract us the worse off we are. Long term these three pillars will disempower the corporate quagmire we find ourselves in today.

“And Republicans are outraged that he would try to act like the leader of our nation. The gall! Just like the Kenyan Marxist Socialist Friend of a Terrorist he is.”

ahhmmm…I think I would have to go a step further babe. These are quite to the point WHITE people pissed off because on their watch, a “nigger” ended up sleeping and temporarily owning the WH. They simply don’t care about his reforms…they want him GONE! Quite a number have said they like to see him dead. How many death threats in toto has the WH received I wonder since January? They scare the bejebus outta me and I’d be willing to bet quite a number of us minority folks feel the exact same way. Their dangerous, and somebody, somewhere is gonna do something really stupid, white man naturally, and all hell is gonna break lose. I wonder what its like for white citizens to consider these people and events and not have to experience any personal fear? Or maybe they do and that’s part of the problem.

Ouch you speak the truth and it hurts. I can’t even go to the Huffy main these days. Every fucking day they have some blatant racist posting their racist rants. I agree with what I think Nellie said earlier that the right wing attacked President Clinton endlessly as well but these attacks on President Obama have a certain edge to them that screams racism.

Yep! Most of them are just obsurd posters but how is it that their even permitted to post and keep posting in some instances for hours? I gotta change my moniker to “IDon’tGetIt”!

LOL.

I boycotted HuffPo for a week because the moderators refused to scrub those offensive posts while scrubbing others. I made my boycott VERY public on facebook and explained exactly why I was doing it. There was another poster who took screen shots and said he was sending them to any outlet he could think of. I’m sure there were others who took similar actions

That little marketing ploy lasted about two days. I’m back at Huffy, and I don’t see those posts any more. So they got the message.

Great post!

Remember when Bush read “My Pet Goat” to school kids on 9/11 in Florida?

Well, where was the outrage?

He was planting a seed in the minds of children to have a goat as a pet…which is ILLEGAL in many parts of the state of Florida!
