‘I wish this president would learn how to be an American’

images-15

“I wish this president would learn how to be an American.”

– Top Romney surrogate John Sununu, in a media call this morning arranged by the Romney campaign.

Sununu, the former governor of New Hampshire and White House chief of staff under the first President Bush, has since tried to apologize for the statement. Perhaps he’s trying to unsay it retroactively. Perhaps he’s got his Etch-a-Sketch out, shaking it furiously.

But really, there’s no cause for an apology or retraction. Sununu simply said what he meant to say. For example, is the statement above any different from what Sununu told Fox News this morning, for which he has not apologized?

“He has no idea how the American system functions. And we shouldn’t be surprised about that, because he spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent … another set of years in Indonesia.”

We get it: “Barack HUSSEIN Obama isn’t a real American. He’s not one of US, he’s one of THEM. I mean, just look at him. Where’s his birth certificate? No, not that one, the long form.”

We all understand the message quite well.

On the other hand, as someone on Twitter just put it, “I don’t know … being a pot-smoker is a hell of a lot more #American than hiding money offshore.”

Patriotism…. over the Olympics? With a nobel prize winning President like Obama (who failed to get the Olympics, let us not forget) running up unimaginable deficits, with the government racing at breakneck speed to ensure our grandchildren are in debt, with unemployment stuck over 8%, despite all best propaganda efforts to knock it down, it’s no wonder you think we should focus on the Olympics.

That’s swapping something that matters for something that doesn’t.

The reality is that some conservatives believe they, and they alone, may declare who is American and who is not. While not comparing conservatives with the Nazis, the Nazis defined who was the “true German”, fertile and virile Aryans.

Mr. Sununu evokes that concept by declaring that Obama needs to learn to be an “American”. No, Mr. Sununu, it is true he may have a different vision of the future for this country but, regardless of the conspiratorial fantasies of the birthers, Mr. Obama is very much an American. But his life experience and situation AS AN AMERICAN is different than most conservative, privileged old fat white guys. So Mr. Sununu wants to declare him un-American.

I suggest Mr. Sununu open a textbook or study some American history. He will soon learn the error of his ways.

Another day of Jay trying to deflect from the economic failure that is the Obama administration. Soon when the people on the entitlements can’t buy crap with their cards and their checks, they are going to turn on everyone and they are going to lash out in a most unpleasant way because they have come to expect something for nothing. Afterall, Obama and the Democrats have promised them that from the beginning. The democrats have created what amounts to a large number of spoiled children. They won’t care what party you belong to or what color your skin is. They want what they think they deserve because they have been promised it. And that day is coming soon.

Schumer and the Democrats are begging Bernanke to give the country another round or another “fix” of worthless cash printing. Anything to boost the economic numbers before November. After that, they couldn’t care less. And these are the people that Jay and the AJC support. Remember Jay, your children are going to pay tommorrow for your decision to support this today.

And just remember folks, even if Obama is re-elected in November you are going to see the harsh reality of what is going to have be done come to light very soon thereafter, starting with the full impact of Obamacare in 2014. But that will only be the beginning because Progressivism is built upon the premise of weeding out the old and the defective and the non-productive. And you are not going to like it and you are going to feel very, very betrayed by the very man that promised you something for nothing. And Obama won’t care because in 4 years he is done anyway and he will retire to live a cushy life while the rest of America is left to pick up the pieces of his destruction.

Now that I have posted you can change the topic Jay.

I was with you up until you had to throw in the twitter comment.

Of course you forgot to mention all the democrats that are invested in companies overseas and or have “off shore accounts”

Interesting thing in that entire argument, as I was watching my brainwash material last night, I had to tune into The Hannity show. See I knew James Carvelle was gonna be on and well for a democrat he keeps it real.

His point on the entire “off shore” money thing was that he couldn’t believe Romney kept the account. Matter of fact he said and I paraphrase here, everyone knows that when you are seeking the office of the presidency you have to clean up stuff like that, it is well known that democrats also have the accounts but it is startling to him that the Romney camp was so stupid or lazy to clean it up before now.

Seems what the standard really is, and it should be something that a media person would like to explore, who in our government has the accounts or “cleaned them up” before they ran for office. And why did they need to clean them up if they are legal.

But Jay do you do that ? No you just repeat the tag line. Give us the current members of the democratic party who do currently own or have held off shore accounts please.

Let’s see, he was born of an American mother and a Kenyan father. That’s probably not typical of most old fat white guys. He spent a number of his young years in Indonesia. That is not the experience of most old fat white guys.

The fact his parents divorced – not uncommon. The fact that he worked as a community organizer is not common for most old conservative guys.

The fact Obama is African-American is another itsy-bitsy difference from the old, fat white guys. I don’t think the old white guys would overlook that tiny, minuscule difference.

So my previous post was about the differences in his experience. Now let’s talk about the differences in vision.

Obama believes there should be a level playing field so everyone has a chance at success. Fat, old white guys think they have a right to be on the top and only those that play by their rules and are accepted into the club can be successful.

Obama believes education should be available to all children so they can be the most they can be. The old white guys think public education stinks and communities should only sink money into charter schools to educate the children of fat old white guys.

Obama thinks the tax code should not allow a CEO to pay less in income tax than his secretary. Obama thinks the tax code should not reward companies for shipping jobs overseas. The fat, old white guys think differently.

Obama thinks everyone should have access to affordable health care. The fat old white guys that used to think that now think that’s a bad idea because Obama made it law.

Obama believes in science, in the need to consider the impact we are making on our planet, the need to be good shepherds of the earth we inherited. Fat, old white guys don’t care because they want to exploit it so they can add more rooms on their mansions plus they expect Jeebus to rescue them soon.

I could to on and on. It is clear there is an experiential and life view different between the two candidates. Let’s see which vision wins in November.

There are so many things one could say, but I’ll stick to the basics. 1. George W. spent more time on vacation than any other president in history. 2. In 2010 the repubs campaigned on jobs, jobs, jobs. Since they’ve had the majority in the House, they have focused on women’s rights, abortion rights and trying to embarrass this administration. They had blocked all of Pres. Obama’s jobs bills until recently; their jobs are up for re-election, you know. If Obama loses this election, you can wave goodbye to all of the middle class and lower.

I know of nothing more bigoted and prejudiced said here today than the insinuation that Obama is smart simply because he isn’t “white trash,” a horrible mean label if ever there was one; or that Romney is wrong because his followers are conservative and therefore white trash.

This reductionism is just what we don’t need. We need thinking, and your old bigoted ideas are just plain crazy. Do you hope to avoid the issue of the bad economy, high deficits, risk of default, patent government corruption and failing liberty by tossing around racist comments like that?

There is a very very strong consensus among liberals here on the Bookman blog that (generally old and poor) white guys are bad. I can only assume that the picture of John Sununu angered them as much as they would impute to these mythical white demons seeing a picture of Reverend Wright. Or perhaps what they see as disagreement is projected as racism. Whichever is the case it is hard to tell.

At least Obams and the Dems are getting to the real heart of the Bain issue – government funded outsourcing giving Bain and other parasites government tax subsidies to pack up and outsource. Only problem is Repubs had an opportunity to avoid this issue by passing an anti outsourcing bill in 2010 an blocked it.
“”"{”Senate Republicans successfully blocked a bill from coming to the Senate floor Tuesday that Democrats claim would help keep American jobs from going overseas.

Republicans call it nothing more than a pre-election political ploy.The Democratic bill would have ended certain tax breaks for companies expanding overseas while giving new tax incentives to businesses bringing jobs home.
CNN- Sept 28, 2010

Guess what that bill is right back before the Senate right now and guess who is blocking it again??
Isn’t that very American of Mitt and the Repubs Mr. Sununu???. Well this timeObama is using it to kick them in the bu-t.
!70 people in Freeport Illinois just got layoff notices because of a plant that Bain is closing and shipping to China. Any word from the All Americans to stop Bain? Oh I forgot sending jobs to communist China is an American tradition especially with that ax subsidy .

The 99% are MORE American(s) than the 1% are–it’s just plain, simple math. While Obama is far from “poor”, Romney is so very much more of a one-percenter than Obama is that questioning the math skills of Sununu is not unreasonable.

“as someone on Twitter just put it,”
Are we allowed to quote Twitter now, Jay?

I personally wish a lot Democrat supporters would learn to be Americans.

Jay, must know that the Dem’s are backing away a bit from Bain because their attacks haven’t been moving the needle in Obama’s favor not unlike the other attacks that failed.

Sorry but no. That discussion is still alive and well everywhere else I’ve been on the internet today.
