There is a time in everyone’s life when they need to grow up. The President that sits in the White House clings to immature associations and views himself through the “cool” vagaries of youth long gone with every year that passes. Being “cool” is the empty vessel that floats his boat both personally and politically. The maturity that provides the gravitas to deal with America’s and the world’s problems escape him.
Personalities desperate to remain “cool” are either narcissistic or stunted or both. They yearn for “coolness” long after their expiration date. Barack Obama turned 51 years of age in the White House. It appears nothing is more important to this man, that is half a century old, than remaining “cool.” That he perceives himself more “celebrity” than president, explains his need to surround himself with celebs and rappers to confirm his “cool” cred which by now should have lost its patina. Sure, he prefers daytime talk shows instead of meeting with world leaders while the Middle East is on fire. In the wake of an American Ambassador left mutilated and dead, this sitting president goes on TV to goofily refer to himself as “eye candy,” flashing a winning smile that he hopes no one can see behind.
Immature politicians find it is easier to be glib, poke fun and hope to get by on a “cool persona.” Leadership in the White House requires maturity and an experienced skill-set to take on serious issues that impact the lives and livelihoods of over 300 million Americans. Unfortunately, this president demonstrates behavior that is not only decidedly “uncool,” but damaging to this nation.
After the first presidential debate, Obama and his camp were so devastated by Mitt Romney’s strong leadership, acumen and vision that they twisted reality. “That was not the real Romney,” they decried. Really? Fact is, “the real Obama” deep-sixed his socialist agenda during the debate. Obama would be forced to admit socialism’s history of unmitigated failure that cannot compete with free market economics. Compared to Obama’s pad-locked past, “the real Romney” is an open book with a proven record of leadership and a solid record of fiscal success as governor of Massachusetts. The Obama that has devastated this nation and buried its middle class is the Obama that Americans have come to know. The one thing that is more “un-cool” than the last four years of Barack Obama, is four more years of Barack Obama.
Under Obama, more people including Hispanics, Blacks and women, have been forced out of the middle class into either part-time work or joblessness. Example is that current unemployment has dipped to 7.8% based on the hiring of what the New York Times cites as 582,000 “involuntary workers” who are forced into PART-TIME jobs leaving Americans still under-employed or unable to find full-time jobs. In a statement, Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney clarified: “This is not what a real recovery looks like. We created fewer jobs in September than in August, and fewer jobs in August than in July, and we’ve lost over 600,000 manufacturing jobs since President Obama took office.” Romney further wrote, “If not for all the people who have simply dropped out of the labor force, the real unemployment rate would be closer to 11 percent.” Obama’s disastrous jobs record – harsh and deceptively “uncool.”
Obama’s modus operandi is destructive no matter your race or economic status. By stirring up racial unrest by portraying Blacks as victims in every perceivable way, it turns out that it is Obama who is doing the victimizing. Blacks desperately want to think of him as cool, yet they have been the most damaged. But, Obama always knew they would be first to be severely hurt as his socialist policies moor them to perpetual poverty. After four years of excruciatingly bad economic policies, Obama clearly owns the rampant unemployment among Blacks that stands at over 14%. Young Blacks suffer the most under Obama with 50% unemployed. Futures truncated, hopes dashed, families suffering under Obama is not only callous, it is the epitome of “uncool.”
To send our valiant military onto the battlefield with orders not to use their weapon unless the enemy first raises his with deadly intentions not only hamstrings our fighting forces, but is reportedly costing lives. Yet, that is what an inexperienced Commander-in-Chief Obama demands in his politically-correct military Rules of Engagement. Politico reports the following: “American soldiers, Marines and sailors have seen casualty rates more than double when the Obama administration issued new ‘Rules of Engagement’ that significantly favors the enemy and put our troops in danger. American troops are being killed in Afghanistan where the Obama administration is protecting the enemy in the name of political correctness which is getting our troops killed.” …“[Obama] is ensuring our failure in the one place he said we needed to win.” Obama has also promised young Hispanics an alternative path to citizenship if they serve in our military — should they be fortunate enough to survive. Deadly and “uncool.”
Truth about ObamaDoesNotCare, formally known as Obamacare, was exposed by New York Times Contributor, Steven Rattner, who worked in Treasury under Obama. Rattner brazenly wrote, “WE need death panels.” Though once vehemently denied, Death Panels are real and are a part of Obamacare. They are made up of an Obama staffed panel that puts a price on your survival – no matter your age or the age of a desperately ill child or parent. Rattner goes on to write that: “At the least, the Independent Payment Advisory Board should be allowed to offer changes in services [blocking treatments] and costs.” Meaning, number-crunching bureaucrats will decide what medical services you and your family will be allowed, not you or your doctor. You will have nowhere to appeal. Invasive, controlling, deadly and “uncool.”
Required by Obamacare, every American will have blood on their hands by paying for abortions via tax payers’ dollars. Obama has a stark history of assault on our most innocent. As a state senator, Obama stood on record before the Illinois Senate and adamantly sought not only late-term abortions that allow crushing the head of a living baby, but also strongly advocated that newborns that survived an abortion and are already breathing be left to die in a bin or on a shelf without medical care. Vile, inhumane and unspeakably “uncool.”
Obama gives away hundreds of billions of dollars to political cronies, failed green projects, irresponsible unions, and to Middle East infrastructure and mosque restorations while cutting Medicare by billions of dollars and financially strapping Medicaid for our mentally and physically disabled. He has aggressively blocked oil permits and a pipeline that could lead not only to jobs, but energy independence. Spinning his actions as positives — deceptively “uncool.”
The Obama campaign has put out a series of creepy e-cards. One incredibly irresponsible one encourages young female students to write home to their parents: “Dear Mom, Mitt Romney says he would repeal the Affordable Care Act. So here’s a quick question: Can I borrow $18,000 to help pay for my birth control?” The Family Research Center writes that, “If your daughter needs $18,000 worth of birth control, you have far more serious issues to deal with than the cost.” At that level of promiscuity, as encouraged by the Obama administration, it is not only “uncool,” it is creepy. What’s next, e-cards detailing how to deal with the aftermath of venereal disease and shattered self-respect? Immaturity + creepy = 51 year-old Obama and his Liberal pals running your college student’s sex life. Uncool to the point of needing a hot shower.
As his party’s nominee at a Democratic Convention where half of the delegates shouted down and denied their Creator God, by not addressing or condemning it as President of the United States either at the convention or on the campaign trail, implies consent. Eternally “uncool.”
One article cannot cover the “uncool” actions by Obama and his cohorts. From betrayals of the middle class, Blacks, and Hispanics to pending U.N. treaties that will usurp America’s sovereignty and safety, the list appears endless with more to come if Obama is re-elected. Suggestion to readers. Stand for your values and your country.
