Obama hip-hops with Lena Dunham to Presidential disgrace
Written by 

obama-occupyAs the presidential campaign grinds to an end, Americans are gaining a better understanding of Barack Obama.  He was challenged by Mitt Romney in the presidential debates and became clearly rattled. As a result, the race that was his to lose is now too close to call, with a slight edge to the challenger.  

To avoid losing to a candidate who, is a good debater, but a poor campaigner, the President is pulling out all the stops in his desperate quest to hold on to power.  Of course, Barack Obama does not want to give up the tremendous perks associated with his office and the vast power he wields. Mostly, the man who likes to be adored does not want to suffer the indignity of losing.  

To avoid that fate, the dignity of his office is being sacrificed. While Ronald Reagan was President, he had so much respect for the White House, that he did not remove his jacket while working in the Oval Office. Today, we have a President who has displayed little respect for the position he was awarded by the American people.  

Instead of elevating the campaign, he is denigrating it by appealing to the worst instincts of the American people. In recent weeks, the President has appeared on late night comedy shows, daytime shows, and was even interviewed on hip hop radio programs like “DJ Pimp with a Limp” and “The Yo Show.” On these programs, he discussed his extensive knowledge of rap stars and hip hop music and bragged that he listens to these artists on his I-pod.  

It is clear that President Obama is more interested in being a celebrity than in being a leader. His wife has the same interest and has been all over the airwaves, making frequent guest appearances on networks such as Nickelodeon and MTV. In recent weeks, the First Couple has been interviewed by Entertainment Tonight and other celebrity oriented programs. In contrast, the President has not held a formal news conference since August 20, when he answered only four questions from the attention-starved media. 

This record demonstrates that Barack Obama is not interested in answering questions; he is more interested in giving orders, all the while basking in the glow of his adoring fans.  

Like every good celebrity, the President wants to maintain his “cool” reputation. Thus, he spends plenty of time with rap stars like Jay-Z and Beyonce and movie stars like George Clooney. To maintain his credibility with this crowd of airheads, the President let loose with some rather undignified comments in a recent Rolling Stone interview. Amazingly, our nation’s leader used language not allowed on our nation’s television networks. He called his opponent, Mitt Romney, a “bull…er.” 

To complete the downgrade of his re-election campaign, the President’s team unveiled a new commercial this week featuring actress Lena Dunham. She compared voting to Obama to losing her virginity. In the ad, Ms. Dunham advises voters that “Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy.” After implying she was discussing sex, Ms. Dunham concluded the ad with a pitch to vote for President Obama. Obviously, this controversial approach is not popular with many Americans. Columnist Joshua Delano of the Bayou Perspective website noted that, “As a father I find this particular disgusting and would not want my daughter anywhere near Obama.  I'm guessing this is the initial response that fathers have across the country who are blessed to have a daughter as I am.” 

The Obama re-election campaign is not exactly a replica of Ronald Reagan’s 1984 re-election campaign. In that year, Reagan ran on the theme “It’s morning again in America.” Instead of that type of uplifting message, Barack Obama is appealing to sex, profanity, and making a crude attempt to engage in class warfare against his opponent.  

It is a depressing campaign for a depressing period in our country’s history. The American people deserve better than this type of treatment and should demand better behavior from their President.  

On November 6, they will have an opportunity to make that demand a reality.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
