If It Walks Like a Duck, It's A Duck Says Ben Stein

Older Americans understand that many ‘old wives tales’ have a ring of truth to them. “Birds of a feather flock together” and “When you lie with dogs you catch fleas” provided adequate reasons why we did not let our sons and daughters associate with bad people when they were growing up.

This is why it was mostly older people who put together the implications of Obama’s associations with thugs, anti-white racists and far-left radicals – with his early refusal to salute our flag. This is why we figured out that he was a dangerous, anti-American and leftist demagogue who could ruin our beloved country.

Unfortunately, it took a long time for others to figure him out, and we are stuck with him until 2012. We have to shower Congress with e-mails and telephone calls until then to stop his programs. We have to rely on a few Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats to hold America together.

We've Figured Him Out

By Ben Stein 7.24.09 American Spectator

Why is President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get his socialized medicine bill passed?

Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths:

The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.

They ignored his anti-white writings in his books. They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.

They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student. They ignored his ultra-left record as a "community organizer," Illinois state legislator, and Senator.

The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar.

Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth. Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist, not a fan of this country, way, way too cozy with the terrorist leaders in the Middle East, way beyond naïveté, all the way into active destruction of our interests and our allies and our future.

The American people have already awakened to the truth that the stimulus bill -- a great idea in theory -- was really an immense bribe to Democrat interest groups, and in no way an effort to help all Americans.

Now, Americans are waking up to the truth that ObamaCare basically means that every time you are sick or injured, you will have a clerk from the Department of Motor Vehicles telling your doctor what he can and cannot do.

The American people already know that Mr. Obama's plan to lower health costs while expanding coverage and bureaucracy is a myth, a promise of something that never was and never will be -- a bureaucracy lowering costs in a free society. Either the costs go up or the free society goes away.

These are perilous times. Mrs. Hillary Clinton, our Secretary of State, has given Iran the go-ahead to have nuclear weapons, an unqualified betrayal of the nation.

Now, we face a devastating loss of freedom at home in health care. It will be joined by controls on our lives to "protect us" from global warming, itself largely a fraud if believed to be caused by man.

Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and will stop him if he delays at all in taking away our freedoms.

There is his urgency and our opportunity. Once freedom is lost, America is lost.

Wake up, beloved America.

Obama is good at what he does best which is to campaign. Everything that he's done so far has been a miserable failure. That TARP money that went out to the states is the biggest farce in American history. They used some of the money to buy new toilets in parks? I honestly believe that these cities and towns that are receiving this money, really don't know how and what to spend it on. I'll give you a good example right now and I bet that Russ will be surprised to hear this one. The Town of Dighton Ma. Harbor master came to our private yacht club, the Shawomet Yacht Club and gave us free of charge, two brand spanking new "No Wake" sign floats in their sealed cardboard boxes. Could this be part of their TARP money? They have never given us anything like that before. I'm wondering what else they bought for other private clubs and businesses? Maybe they're planning on cracking down on speeding boats on the river to generate some money to the coffers by imposing fines. Maybe this harbor master is going to start doing his job, because the guy before him never did. I wish that someone would look into this one because this town is forever killing us with higher taxes each year. I'd rather have them keep their "No Wake" signs and give us a break on taxes, but I guess that isn't going to happen. Damn Democrooks!
