Why Obama Can't Save Us Because He is a Big, Fat Hypocrite

HOPEbama: In the Thrall of AIPAC

Barry Hussein HOPEbama says it’s time for a CHANGE in Washington and that if he gets elected, he is going to stop “all the anger and infighting.” Got that? Barry wants us to just stop being all mad about watching our jobs and healthcare disappear and our civil liberties thrown in the shitter while he tells us he will give us “hope and change.” For free, too!

Well guess what, Barry? We don’t WANT to stop being angry at the Bush thugs and their corporate enablers OR at any lying Democratic hypocrite like you who tell us one thing and mean another.

In her article “Why Obama Can’t Save Us”, Missy Beattie reveals the deep-seated hypocrisy of candidate Obama who has aligned himself with Israel:

“These are some of Obama's comments during a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC):
"Our job is to rebuild the road to real peace and lasting security throughout the region, "Our job is to do more than lay out another road map."
"That effort begins with a clear and strong commitment to the security of Israel: Our strongest ally in the region and its only established democracy. "That will always be my starting point."
And calling for sustained military support to Israel, Obama said: "We must preserve our total commitment to our unique defense relationship with Israel by fully funding military assistance and continuing work on the Arrow and related missile defense programs."
For Barack Obama to say that "our job is to lay out another road map" for peace while we are providing military support to Israel as the country launches attacks on Palestinians is hypocrisy. There is more than a conflict of interest for the US to go to the table, act as peace brokers, and make demands. But, then, that is what we do as self-appointed police officers to the world. We decry the violence in Kenya. Condi Rice has just made a statement that it must stop. But the violence perpetrated on the Iraqi and Afghan populations by her boss's policies continues without end. Our violence is good violence. Anyone else's is barbaric.
It matters little to me that Barack Obama says he was against invading Iraq. After all, he votes to continue funding it. If this presidential candidate wanted to mend relations with Muslims, he could start by voting against additional war funding.
And he could say no to AIPAC-but this would be political suicide.”

Change and Hope? The Politics of Dope is what Senator More of the Same, HOPEbama is smoking and wants you too, to join him in this hypocrisy hell ride to the bottom.

thanks for this post tt. you've got me thinking now. What do you think of an Edwards/Obama ticket?

OT -

I thought of you when I saw this one:
What if the Beatles were Irish? - LOL!

Hey JC!

Hilarious rendition of Beatles as Irish, the real deal!

Thumbs downski on Obama BUT how about an Edwards/Paul ticket?

I mean, let's face it. The only CHANGE an Obama presidency would bring would be two cents back on our tax returns. I'm not looking for small CHANGE here -- I'm looking for gold ingots, man!

I was thinking about your posts "last year":) about Ron Paul and my son (now at college) and his friends say he is (as you've heard) very popular on college campuses but that the majority really give him shit.

I love this quote from Paul Krugman, "But among at least some of Barack Obama’s supporters there seems to be a belief that if their candidate is elected, the world’s problems will melt away in the face of his multicultural charisma."

Right, the 'muslim' card. So which is it? Is Obama white or black?

He is "whatever" anyone wants him to be! The flex candidate. How handy...despite the fact that he is the flip side of Hillary.
