Many in America believed the election of the first African-American president would be the cleansing of past sins this country has sought for so long. They believed we would enter into a “post-racial” period in America where we would all truly realize that anyone can achieve whatever greatness they desired.
But as I look back on the events of the past week there is one word that comes to mind: racist.
This week demonstrated the elevation of Barack Hussein Obama to the highest office in the land (twice!) was still not enough. It seems the achievement itself, which could not have been attained without white Americans, still falls short of the true desire, which was blind allegiance and submission.
President Obama has shown he is not up to the standard of leadership for which Americans expect, but criticism of such is met with the retort of racism. Castigating people as racist just because they disagree with proven failed policies is simply despicable.

If this Republic can once again remember what American leadership looks like, our greatest days are indeed ahead. Let us never again become enraptured by a cult of personality promoting empty rhetoric that is anathema to our fundamental principles and beliefs. As de Tocqueville stated, “America is great because America is good, when America ceases to be good it will no longer be great”. Leaders inspire people to dream great dreams and bring them to fruition, not sell us products. Watch this video – less than a minute. It will make you cry.
It’s Obama and his acolytes are embarking upon a media blitz to convey a failing message of US military engagement in Syria. Why should we listen to President Obama? He didn’t listen to the American people on Stimulus, Obamacare, Fast and Furious, IRS scandal, NSA, not to embrace the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and various other actions contrary to our Constitution. Most egregious was Obama not listening to the American people, and without Congressional approval, taking his unilateral venture into Libya creating an Islamist base of operations. This week we shall remember the four Americans who were abandoned by Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton as they came under attack a year ago on 9-11. I am imploring and encouraging those Americans who love this country to embark upon their own blitz. Starting Monday through Tuesday evening, melt down the White House phone lines, email, Facebook, and Obama’s twitter with a simple message, “Remember the Benghazi 4.”.Where are Obama’s exertions and media blitz over the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, IMO Sean Smith, Ty Woods, and Glenn Doherty? NO to military action in Syria. Remember the Benghazi 4!
Jefferson stated in the Declaration of Independence that we have “unalienable rights from our Creator, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”. Obviously President Barack Hussein Obama believes in a “guarantee of happiness” and that he, along with his liberal disciples, are the arbiters of fairness. America is about equal opportunity, not the liberal progressive mantra of equal achievement. Nice try Mr. President but teleprompters and poll tested messages do not equal visionary leadership. Sorry… I know, that ain’t fair!
I researched those who have gone before them and found the following perspectives from four people who have served as President:
“To provide legitimate services to our people; to help preserve peace; to provide a mechanism by which the people’s character can be expressed in international affairs. I think the purpose of government is to alleviate inequities. I think the purpose of government is to provide for things that we can’t provide ourselves.” –President Jimmy Carter, A government as good as its people, Page 74
“First, in tough times governments need stable revenues to pay their bills, support salaries, pensions, and health care. That requires decisive action to ensure that everyone pays their fair share of taxes. Otherwise, a few pay too much, many pay too little, the government is in the hole and can never get out, and you will never be able to have a stable economic policy. It is tempting for everyone to avoid wanting to pay any taxes. But if everyone will pay their fair share, the share will be modest and their incomes will be larger over the long run because of the stability and growth it will bring to this Russian economic system.” -President Bill Clinton speaking to students at Moscow University of International Relations in 1998.
President Obama’s comments at the CBC dinner Saturday evening telling the black community to “stop complaining” were disrespectful and reprehensible. With unemployment in the black community at 16.7 percent, food stamp enrollment up, and our national poverty rate at epic proportion, the people have a constitutional right to redress their grievances to the government. If President Obama believes he is above criticism and reproach for his failed economic policies, then he should either change his policies or step down. Regardless, as a Member of the Congressional Black Caucus, I admonish President Barack Hussein Obama to apologize to America for his callous remarks.
