Obama the Shyster on Wright, Gas Taxes

When their long-term association was winning him points in the African-American community, which in turn was winning him votes in the primaries, Barack Obama gives a flowery speech on race relations in which he emphasizes that he cannot disassociate himself from his pastor Jeremiah Wright.

...this helps explain, perhaps, my relationship with Reverend Wright. As imperfect as he may be, he has been like family to me. He strengthened my faith, officiated my wedding, and baptized my children. Not once in my conversations with him have I heard him talk about any ethnic group in derogatory terms, or treat whites with whom he interacted with anything but courtesy and respect. He contains within him the contradictions - the good and the bad - of the community that he has served diligently for so many years.

I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother - a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.

These people are a part of me. And they are a part of America, this country that I love.

Six weeks later, votes in hand, Barack Obama throws Jeremiah Wright under the bus - pandering to public option polls that underscore the realization on the part of a good section of Americans that Wright is a lunatic, and Barack Obama is either lying when he says he's had extensive conversations with Wright on substantive issues -- or he's lying when he says that he just didn't know how far out there Wrights' ideas are and wasn't aware that Wright had these concepts about race relations in America and the modern-day oppression of Black America.

He's lying -- is the bottom line.

And now Obama passes on gas tax supression!

As an Illinois state Senator, Barack Obama voted to rescind the Illinois state gas tax back when gasoline was $1.50 a gallon. Now it's $4 a gallon, and since Hillary Clinton wants to suspend the tax, Barack Obama is dead set against the idea.

Why, you ask? Because his opponents are in favor of it. Get it, wink wink -- change, it's the whole -- "change" -- thing. Kewl... the first-time voters that are college-age really rally around that -- "change" -- thing.

Black voters and young voters -- and Barack Obama is the snake-oil huckster chasing after their votes the way a slimy lawyer chases ambulances.

Publius II:

by Publius II

There once was a man named Obama
His life began with drama
An African Muslim father
An eccentric white mama

Obama's white grandparents
They gave him a charmed life
Raised on the beaches of Hawaii
Far from ghetto strife

He went to private schools
Fourteen thousand dollars a year
Working-class white folks
They were nowhere near

He attended Columbia
Then Harvard Law
A very soft and liberal upbringing
Something Americans eventually saw

He then went to Chicago
Nation of Islam, Farrakhan, Black Panthers and Jackson
The only friends he made
All from the extreme left-wing faction

He joined a radical church
His Pastor downright insane
Blacks and whites, he said
Think with different parts of their brain

His church praised a man named Cone
With hateful opinions he was filled
He said white people were "the devil"
And Gods who love whites must be killed

Obama first ran for State Senate
With permission from Chicago's Marxist King
A domestic terrorist named Ayers
Obama kissed his ring

He wrote a book called "Dreams From My Father"
From start to finish a racist rant
After people finally read it
They said: "Obama, no we can't"

He wrote how he rejected his mother's race
And that Malcolm X was a hero
People had a clear warning
Obama was a dangerous zero

He was then elected to the U.S. Senate
Obama's ego grew very bold
He barely served a year
I will run for President was the story he told

He spent millions to stage rallies
The crowds would yell and cheer
But then it all fizzled out
Typical white folks, he said, cling to religion, guns and beer

His wife said America was mean
She was never really proud
Her Black Separatist thesis at Princeton
Became a campaign cloud

People said he was a Muslim
His supporters scoffed and jeered
Then his Black Liberation Church was exposed
And Obama's ugly head was reared

He tried to recover in a speech on race
The left-wing media offered raves
But he said white folks had an "untrained ear"
And abolitionists in Pennsylvania rolled over in their graves

He claimed to be a uniter
He would bring people together all at once
But after his speech in Philadelphia
He proved to be a demographic dunce

He tried once more to persuade whites
But his bowling was a mess
He rolled a 37
Like a 5-year-old girl in a dress

He then played basketball
He drove the ball to the rack
But when all was said and done
He nearly had a heart attack

He said damn those white voters
Their Mutual Funds I will tax
I'll double the capital gains rate
Like an old-school Liberal hack

He opposed a gas tax holiday
He said it wasn't a winner
$40 wasn't much he said
Just the weekly budget for the average family's dinner

He wouldn't cover his heart
As the National Anthem played
It's a meaningless gesture he said
But Americans felt betrayed

He wouldn't wear a flag pin
It was against his One World view
It doesn't matter he said
And the American people stewed

He first called terrorist Ayers his friend
Then said this man he didn't really know
More deceit and cover-ups
Obama's lies began to grow

Farrakhan, Jackson and Sharpton
Three of Obama's greatest fans
He tried hiding them in the closet
So not to further offend the white man

Then came his anti-American Pastor
Obama's mentor for 20 years
He preened, shucked and jived
White people rose up and sneered

NBC and the New York Times
They tried each day to save Obama's campaign
But real Americans said "FU"
And Obama spiraled down the drain

His name was Barrack Hussein Obama
Running for a second Jimmy Carter term
Weak on National Security
A little, pacifist worm

The radical left-wing Democrats
A Presidential race lost once again
Is it really a surprise
They've lost 7 of the last 10?


Wow, Lee, are you throwing your lot in with THIS guy?


Publius, if you came up with that yourself, my hat's off to you. That was pretty f'in' good!

"Working-class white folks?
They were nowhere near."

I love it!

beverly Burrell:

America needs to get over racism and move forward as the progressive, fair and "All men are created equal nation". The civil war is over folks, let get on with improving our nation's economy, social system, judical system, health care system and the overall brotherhood of the American people.
