Obama is out of touch

Man arrested with rifle looking for Obama. . . . From CNN

That didn't take long. . . I guess he is starting to get folks attention with all the spending and corruption he has brought to DC. Now that is impressive that he can bring more considering what was there to start with. . .

I wonder what the record is for time in office before someone gets caught or does something against a president? This would be what three weeks? I don't ever remember something that quick although I admit when that woman took a shot at Pres. Ford I don't know how long he had been in.

I hope Obama wakes up (I know he won't) that all them calls, emails and letters are real, folks don't want what he is selling now, they want what they thought he was selling in November. . .

Fools

Now the question is how long until he does something that he can be impeached for? I bet he already has since he is not protecting us or the Constitution from our enemies but no one will know unless he messes up so bad the press can't cover for him.

Socialism and National Health Care are not hope and sure are not good change. Just wait until they refuse to treat you or a family member due to the cost and your age. Just go die quietly like they do in Europe will ya? thanks. . .

And the pit gets dug deeper. . . .

Update -

And deeper - all I can say is Fairness Doctrine - which will kill free speech and put in place government control on the radio but will allow the left to continue control of the Main Stream Media. . . Oh ya, they get a pass, they don't have to give time for opposing views because we know they are right and any oppositions wrong . . . It's coming folks - say good by to what is left of the First Amendment. . .

Edit -

One comment thought I was backing this poor soul who tried to get to Obama. No, that is not the point of my post. The point is that this poor guy has been driven to the point that he actually saw this as a reasonable response. How desperate do you need to get to get to where this guy is? I would NEVER condone any violence against anyone, POTUS or otherwise. What I am saying is Obama is out of touch, and the government is out of touch, has been for years. Normal folks don't see violence as an answer. that is the sign of someone that needs help and has been pushed to the point they see no other way to be heard. In a county as wealthy as ours this is a disgrace that anyone would get to this point.

As I have said before, Bush was not good, and Obama looks to be no better, we have just changed the fool in charge. Every election we give up more of our rightes, pay more in taxes, and become more of a wellfare state. We are still going the wrong way, just a new driver.

Dude, that means a lot coming from someone that won't leave a name. . .

JD said...

OH ya, and how about the end of the First Amendment with the Fairness Doctrine. . . yep no free speech for you! Only government approved speech!!

Matt said...

My name is Matt. This article is insane nonsense. The attack on the fairness doctrine that you are alluding to would keep crazy, unfounded rants like this off the airwaves. The general public will be smarter for it. These rants are like the telly tubbys for wingnut republicans.

JD said...

Well Matt I guess you don't get the idea of Free Speech then do you? This country is supposed to support the free exchange of info. You don't have to agree with any of it but you don't have the right to say I can't talk or tell someone my thoughts.
I am sure if I agreed with Obama then that would be ok even if it is a lie right?
When the government tries to silence folks we have a problem, no matter if it is Bush or Obama or anyone else doing it. If you don't get that then you need to go back and re-read the Constitution and the other papers written by our founders. Of course this assumes you ever read any of them in the first place. . . .

Matt said...

My name's Matt as well, though not the same one as before. I do understand you have the right to say what you believe and feel. And I have the right to tell you that you are a moron and a bitterly sore loser. According to every poll EXCEPT Fox news (no caps for the news because the crap they throw out is not news) show that the American people support the President's stimulus package, even if there are some concerns about the necessity of everything in it and the safeguards it requires. So please, if you have no constructive opinions on what we should do, keep those that you do have to yourself, it's what I did during the Bush years

The first amendment exempts any efforts to incite violence.

I am exercising my free speech to tell you just how ignorant your free speech is.

You are more or less defending someone that made a pathetic attempt on the president's life because you have some secret knowledge of corruption in the new found presidency and you're certain the would-be assassin's motives center around this knowledge and his profound disappointment. So my question to you is, how close were you to the said would-be assassin given your privileged and provocative insight? Or are you just talking out of your idiotic ass?

JD said...

One - Sorry, the polls and calls to the DC folks have been vastly against the bail out. . .

Two - I spent 8 years listing to folks bad mouth Bush and did so myself, he was a fool, the only good part was he was better than the other guy. . .

Three - I in no way support anyone that would use violence against the president. What I am saying is I understand with the way the economy is going and the lack of good leadership from Bush or Obama or Congress that I am not surprised that folks are going to snap and do stupid things like this. Folks are getting desperate and it is not getting better and won't get better with the crap they are selling us. We are loosing our county more and more with every Administration that gets in from either side. Sooner or later folks will snap in desperation. It is a sad day that in our country anyone can get so desperate that they see attacking the POTUS or anyone else as the only choice they have.

To me this shows how out of touch our government is and has been for years now. If folks thought the government listened to them then things like this would not happen. This guy that tried to get to Obama needs help, this is a cry for help. He is sick and driven to this desperation by what our government has done over the last few years.

JD,

A man wanted to harm our president and your argument is that it was his fault?!

Obama is trying to fix our country, a mess that has left behind by BUSH administration.

Even if that man disagree with him, it doesn't give him the rights to try to harm the president.

Putting the blame on Obama is the most absurd reason ever! You're saying it's OK for this man to want to harm the president just because he disagrees with Obama.

You dont' see Liberals going around the capitol trying to take out Bush! Bush pissed off so many people in this country... If someone wanted to take out Bush, you and your precious Rush Limbaugh and his croonies would be all over it!

Amber said...

You're fucking delusional. The guy is not going after Obama because of policies it's because of fucking racial fear that are fueled by FoxNews and Rush Limbaugh. You guys put yourself in the most self righteous position and pretend you're better than everyone else.

At least Liberals did't go around carrying gun to try to take down Bush when we disagreed with him. Instead we worked together to win the election.

You're justifying this man's action and blaming it on Obama.

Even if you disagree w/ our president, you shouldn't support anyone who wants to harm him. That is just treason. Try to be a little more patriotic ok? I know it's hard for you right wing nuts to do it with all that double speak.

JD said...

Amber, no, I am saying I understand how he snapped and got to the point that an insane option became sane to him. It is still wrong.

As for Bush, yes he is partially at fault, so is congress, Clinton and Bush 1. This problem did not show up in 4 or even 8 years. As the government grew so did our problems. I would bet some could trace this all the way back to Nixon taking us off the gold standard and letting us print money to get out of trouble. . .. ya - that don't work. Didn't then and won't now. . . .

JD said...

Amber -

Just a hint, if you stay civil it is much better for making your case. . .

I have only seen the news. At this point there is no facts I have seen that Obama's race has anything to do with the "attack" on him. He is POSTUS so folks see him as in charge, he represents the government so folks go to him for good or bad.

As for running around with guns - no sane person is running around with guns trying to take down Obama. This was the act of a SICK man and you harp on him for it. where is your compassion and understanding. He needs help and I hope he gets it.

As for Rush and folks I don't listen to him. I think the right is as far out of touch as the left. I vote for anyone that backs the Constitution, Dem, Rep or independent.

You really need to calm down. If I was as nuts as you claim I would have moderated out all the comments that disagree with me. . . Hmm seems they are still on line. . ..

I love a good argument, that is how we learn. A good debate does not need name calling and swears though. . .
