THE STORIES HE FORGOT TO TELL
B. Hussein Obama speaks. He speaks well. He speaks a lot. He rarely speaks the truth.
“The mistake of my first term – couple of years – was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right, and that’s important, but the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times.”
Still #SMH. “What story did he leave out?” is the question that keeps pinging around my brain. He told us the story of his life in not one but two books. True, both “Dreams From My Father” and “The Audacity of Hope” are factually dubious, and questions of who actually authored them still hang about. But what story has he left out?
Obama has told the leaders of foreign nations, mostly repressive dictators, the story of America’s “arrogance”, and past injustices, and of how he will make everything better by ensuring that the United States becomes just like every other backward, tortured country whose citizens risk their lives to escape those hellholes and come here.
B. Hussein Obama has fawningly told the story of Islam as “a great religion.” He’s told us the story of how the culture of Iran was responsible for great advances in “math and science,” and how their “art and music have made the world a more beautiful place.” He’s told us, in his own words, the story of his own “Muslim faith.”
Obama has told the story of how virtuous his liberal policies will be if only the ornery Republicans and kooks in the Tea Party will allow him to implement them. He has told us the story of how Capitalism doesn’t work, is unfair and harms the little guy.
President Obama told us the story of Julia; the feckless heroine whose life was one of endless dependence on government. He told us the story of Julia’s progression from one social program to another, and how utterly helpless she would have been without federal subsidies.
He told us the story of how Obamacare was not a tax, and of how it would increase the quality and decrease the cost of our medical care in the United States.
He told us the story of how, if he had not increased the number of Americans with jobs and improved the overall economy in three years, that his presidency would be a “one term proposition.”
What story did he leave out? If the greatest mistake (harhar) of B. Hussein Obama’s presidency was not telling a story, the omitted story must have been a whale of a tale. I just can’t imagine what the Talker in Chief could have failed to mention. But…let me go out on a limb here. Could Obama actually regret not telling the story of American Exceptionalism; of her greatness and goodness? Is he like the “anti-de Tocqueville,” walking around the Last Best Hope of Earth wearing blinders?
Is it remotely possible that Obama regrets not telling the story of Capitalism; the only truly free economic system where anyone with a good idea and a pair of willing hands has a shot at great wealth and a high standard of living? Does B. Hussein Obama regret not relating the stories of the Founding Documents, and how they elevated the individual above kings and monarchies, and set men free to create a government where the power of the law was wielded only by consent of the governed?
Does B. Hussein Obama feel great remorse having failed to tell Americans about the story of the greatest fighting forces in human history, and of how the United States’ Military has liberated countless nations from the grip of tyranny? Did he simply forget to tell the story of the most honorable, well-trained, best-equipped, and bravest warriors in the world that populate our Armed Forces?
Did the President absent-mindedly leave out the stories of America’s great family traditions, and of how American Capitalism combined with the stable and well-defined nuclear family, produced the prolific and prosperous Baby Boom of the mid-Twentieth Century?
Silly me. Obama is a smart man and he hasn’t missed a beat in his effort to “fundamentally transform America.” And like General Giap of the North Vietnamese Army, Obama is thrilled by the American media’s omission of stories that in reality would “give them a sense of unity, purpose, and optimism, especially during tough times.” Obama’s errors in thinking are more global and more dangerous than simply failing to speak enough words to the American public.
B. Hussein Obama is a man who has BeeEssed his way through life. His only regret is that he cannot BeeEss sufficiently well to hide the reality that his presidency is a catastrophe that threatens to destroy America, liberty, and the future of freedom in the greater World.
Since the Vietnam Era, the American Press has become even more polarized to the Left, and more dedicated to the end of Capitalism and American superiority. Weak politicians, the Press, and the anti-War movement resulted in the deaths of thousands of American fighting men and millions of Southeast Asians during and immediately following the Vietnam War. If Barack Obama and his lapdog media succeed in getting him re-elected to another four years in the White House, it will result in the death of the United States as we know it. And that will be one story we don’t want to hear.
