If you really want to know what is going on in the world, watch Fox News. They make fun of them, but they are more watched than all the news networks combined. They will tell it like it really is, not what the president wants you to believe. Look at when Obama speaks from the oval office. You can tell he is Muslim. No more flags and backdrop has Muslim symbols on it. Are Americans really this blind? I got an email about the length of a democracy and we are in the last 25 years. Of course no one wants to give up the goose that laid the golden egg, but even she goes through the change of life. I just thank God that I am at the end of my life and do not have to worry that many more years.

(Not saying that President Obama is a muslim) Sooooo Americans cant be Muslims......I guess he should move to Mexico to practic poloygamy.....shrug

Truth101...you realize Muslim radicals attacked our embassies in Middle East countries, right? You also are aware that Obama established a 2.5 billion dollar slush fund to give to various Middle East countries including Libya and Egypt, right? You are aware that Obama has repeatedly bashed American freedoms while supporting Islam responses to perceived slights? The issue is not whether an American can be a Muslim the issue is can he be a Muslim and still support the American constitution and American freedoms and Obama has shown that he cannot.

BO has sold out America--every apology, every strong arm tactic against Americans, every illegal alien that is in school, every downgrade of American credit is a slap in the face of every person who fought for this country since her inception in the 1700s. Unfortunately, the ignorant will vote him back in and what he has started will be finished by 2016 and America will cease to exist. God help us

I fear idiots in denial, get your head out of the sand and take off your colorblind glasses. Vote for who you want to, but don't vote for color.

2

USTPC 1 year, 6 months ago

No they don't and what an uninformed comment. You are aware that there are conservative black and latino voters, right?

What is feared is the uninformed voters who will vote for Obama because of the check they receive each month or the free phone they get or the promise of making the rich pay their fair share or the ones who will vote for Obama so that they will not be called racist or the ones who are afraid that Mitt might cut one of their government handout programs or the ones who believe the constitution is outdated and needs to be changed. Those are the voters that Americans are afraid of and they come in all races and genders.

So you are saying everyone needs to vote. Early, in absense or at the poles, We need to get everyone out and vote, register those that aren't, and ask them to vote for the Country, not their pocket book. A massive turnout would assure Obama doesn't get re-elected, A normal apathetic turnout gives him four more years.

Bubbasmithredneck, why don't you go back to la la land and leave us grown intelligent folks alone here in "honey boo boo land." Oh, and take all of your inane comments with you.

USTPC 1 year, 6 months ago

Where the intelligence level is much higher???? You mean like the Obama voter in Michigan who said the ambassador in Libya that was killed "deserved it"? The one in Cleveland who is voting for Obama because he gives out free phones? The ones interviewed by Stern who thought Palin was Obama's VP in 2008? The ones interviewed by Stern who think Ryan is Obama's VP in 2012? The women interviewed at the Democratic convention who was adamant that women should have a choice to abortion but that I should not be able to choose what size sugary drink I want at the movie or convenience store? You can say a lot of things about the people voting for Obama but not that they have a "much higher intelligence". They prove that on a regular basis.

Bubba may end up correct. It shows the power of the media in protecting Obama. How many Americans are aware that this administration deliberately misled them regarding the killing of Americans in Libya? Reporters seem uninterested as to whether precations were taken in the run up to 9/11.

B4it 1 year, 6 months ago

BSR - if you had a choice of voting for a Stalin/Hitler administration, or a Reagan administration, which would you choose?

Shallow thinkers, and ones who do not see what socialists policies and admin reps have been put in place by Obama, would vote for a Stalin/Hitler rule because they can not, or will not, see the lies that are being cleaverly told to them.

Your support for Obama and his freedom destroying policies are pathetic!

USTPC 1 year, 6 months ago

You are absolutely right. Do a google search of Hitler compared to Obama or something like that. There is a list of 12-15 items but the two that jumped out at me are these:

Both Hitler and Obama's supporters followed them blindly, and without question

Both Hitler and Obama were able to mesmerize the people even when it was obvious that what they were saying was not true.

People get mad when you compare Obama to Hitler but the fact is there are a lot of similarities.

0

Jax 1 year, 6 months ago

You could make those comparisons to any charismatic leader throughout history. FDR comes to mind. You could replace FDR with Hitler in your comparisons, and it would still be true.

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you mention Hitler? Could it be the systematic murder of more than 6 million Jews, or that he started a war in which 60 million people lost their lives? I'm not sure what Obama's body count is, but I'm positive that it's nowhere close to that.

I think he is an awful president. I don't like the way he regards economic achievement. I don't like the way he likes to take from one person to give to another.

I really hate that I feel I must defend this president about anything. I think he is awful for our country. However, I can not let such an intellectually dishonest comparison go by without saying something about it. Until Obama is responsible for mass genocide, the Hitler comparisons should stop.

0

USTPC 1 year, 6 months ago

No they shouldn't. If we wait until there is a mass murder by whatever means it will be too late.

0

B4it 1 year, 6 months ago

Jax - do not fall into the trap of trying to direct the primary point of being dishonest and deceiptful with misdirection into a different subject. The "systematic murder" .... and "starting a war" came after the lies had met Hitler's intended purpose (which was to get the shallow thinkers into believing his wicked ways were for their benefit).

There are still similarities in the history of Hitler and what Obama is doing (even though Obama has not committed actual murder, symbolically he is murdering our constitution. And I agree with you that Obama is awful for our country.

0

Jax 1 year, 6 months ago

Hitler was trying to make Germany a world power militarily, and he sought to flex his might that way. Obama, on the other hand, seems to be ashamed of the US dominance on the world stage and is looking to rein that in.

Comparisons to Hitler have severe limitations. So, sorry USTPC, in order to make comparisons to Hitler, you have to wait until he has murdered millions of innocent people. Of course that will never happen because we have patriotic citizens like me and you to cry foul way in advance of that.

0

USTPC 1 year, 6 months ago

You need to bone up on your history. Initially Hitler did not claim or let be known that he wanted Germany to be a world power. He only did that AFTER he had convinced the masses that he was the answer to all their problems.

0

Jax 1 year, 6 months ago

You heard it here first, folks. Obama intends to murder millions. Thanks, USTPC, you've enlightend us all...and THAT is why we don't need to reelect him.

lynn227 1 year, 6 months ago

Teddy Roosevelt. Abraham Lincoln. FDR. LBJ. George Washington. And the list can go on and on, when it comes to charismatic leaders. To put President Obama's name and Hitler's in the same sentence is sad on your part. I guess election year calls for desperate measures. That's showing a lack of faith in your candidate's ability to win when you stoop that low.

0

USTPC 1 year, 6 months ago

Not stooping low at all. Just calling it like I see it and like others who are smarter than me see it. And do not even compare the likes of TR, AL, FDR, and GW to Obama. Obama couldn't hold their jock straps.

I have never despised a President of our country as much as I despise Obama. Even Carter had my respect despite the fact that I did not approve of much about his administration...at least he still gave the impression that he cared about America. Obama does not. Obama cares about Obama. He is smug, arrogant, anti-american, and shows complete lack of support for our constitution and our freedoms.

0

USTPC 1 year, 6 months ago

Jax and Lynn227....you obviously did not read the entire list. So here it is and I do not think you can apply it to all charismatic leaders:

-Both Hitler and Obama held rallies in outdoor stadiums to excite and inflame the people's passions. Frequently women would faint or break into tears.

-Both Hitler and Obama wrote ghost-written autobiographies prior to the start of theri run for political office. Hitler wrote Mein Kampf (My Struggle), and Obama wrote Dreams Of My Father. Both men then wrote a second book talking about their goals for German and America. Hitler wrote A New World Order, and Obama wrote The Audacity of Hope.

-Both Hitler and Obama originally had last names that were changed later in life. Hitler used to be Schickelbruber, and Obama's last name was Soetoro.

  • Both Hitler and Obama hid their real identies. Hiter had a Jewish ancestry, and Obama a Muslim one. But unlike Hitler, Obama flaunted his Muslim roots in his start as a politician in order to defuse the inevitable firestorm. His ploy of "hiding in plain sight" worked very well.

  • Both Hitler and Obama's supporters followed them blindly, and without question

  • Both Hitler and Obama used political power and coercion to conceal and hide their birth certificates from coming to public view. Hitler made his disappear, and Obama is unwilling and unable to produce his long-form birth certificate.

  • Both Hitler and Obama advocate using young people as a driving force to create an "army" of youth dedicated to their Ideals. Hitler had his Hitler Youth, and Obama his Obama Youth Brigade.

  • Both Hitler and Obama were known for their tremendous oratorical skills

  • Both Hitler and Obama received Messianic comparisons, and both men had songs of adoration written about them and for them.

  • Like Hitler, Obama rules in direct disregard to the will and wishes of the people.

  • Like Hitler, Obama has an obvious distaste for the Jews, and sides with the Muslims every chance he gets.

  • Both Hitler and Obama were able to mezmerize the people even when it was obvious that what they were saying was not true.

  • Both Hitler and Obama used domestic terrorists to launch their careers. Hitler had his Brown Shirts from his beer hall days, and Obama had people like Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and Rashid Khalidi.

  • Like Hitler, Obama advocates using murder as a means of population control.

Now...about applying that to all charismatic leaders?

I wish Bush would apologize for all my relatives that were maimed in Iraq, emotionally and physically. I will forgive him those who were wounded in Afghanistan, at least Bin Laden was suppose to be there. How does he ever explain warring against Iraq? Those people were too busy dodging Saddam to care about us. In case anyone wants to open his/her big mouth and challenge my statements? My extended family and children who have served this country give me the right to my opinion. One...two...three, bring on the idiots!

Fletch, What a stupid unAmerican statement to make. Because some one volunteers to protect our country doesn't give the POTUS the right to irresponsibly send them to slaughter. That's theproblem with you rednecks, you think of the military as mercenaries and not our family. That was the theory of the third reich Wehrmacht.

Too bad your relatives were somehow tricked into believing that soldiers never have to fight, die, or get hurt. I can see how they/you would be idignant. And not to ruin your fantasy, but you do realize that a president cannot unilaterally declare war without oversight, don't you?

The die is cast. The missionary to France gets GA and the community organizer gets the electoral college and hence 1600 Penn Ave. in what should have been a coasting victory the GOP handed the Dems a gold ring. Mittens ran the worst campaign since Geo. B. McClellan, Jr. Obama has just sat in the stands adhering to the wisdom of Prnce Machivali to never interfere while your enemy is killing himself. With the pair of Mittens and Lyin' Ryand it is expected. Prepare yourself as you may Obama is our next Commander in Chief.

USTPC 1 year, 6 months ago

Amazing. Obama and his administration have lied for the last two weeks about the attacks on our embassies saying they were the result of an obscure anti islam you tube video. Obama right after the attacks thought it was more important to go on Letterman and the view and attend two fund raising parties than to stay abreast of and inform the public of the status of our embassies and American citizens in the Middle East and refused to meet with world leaders and instead let Hillary meet with them. Instead of leading the country through the crisis he was partying.

And you still think he is better for America than Romney? Wow. As a true American I was unequivocally angry at what he did after the attacks and how he responded. If I had not already determined that he was not the best person to lead this country then his response and actions after those attacks in the Middle East certainly would have made up my mind.

Any true American should feel the same way.

Lets all vote on faith, not race ! bye bye Obama.. I'm not Mormon or Muslim I am a American who loves my GOD an my COUNTRY.
