What Attacks on Obama are Really About

The readers who have nothing better to do than read this blog may know that I have claimed for some time that attacks on Obama are not really aimed at Obama at all, but are largely an attempt to talk away the grotesque failure of Republican administrations since Nixon, by fabricating claims that Democrats are just as bad.

Here is an example of this, from Jim Hoft at Gatewany Pundit, that would make any decent human being die of shame:

"If Saddam Was Still Alive Today…"

This picture of Saddam and Obama is, of course, a photoshopped phony, unlike the following picture, which is all too real:

Yes, that's Republican hero Donald Rumsfeld, serving under Republican God Ronald Reagan, doing pretty much exactly what Jim Hoft's phony picture pretends Obama would do. Could there possibly be a clearer demonstration of what these malicious traitors are up to when they attack Obama?

Rummy's not bowing.

Oh gawd!

Rummy's not bowing, so it's okay that he's sucking up to and shaking the hand of one of the world's worst murderous dictators, who will soon receive WMDs and biological weapons so he can use them on his own people, complements of the Republican administration.


So he's not as bad as the Kenyan, Barack HUSSEIN OBama, who merely bent down because HE'S TALLER than the world leaders he meets.

SF just proved your point, GE.


BTW, does kissing Saudi princes on their beautiful lucious lips, as Dubya did, count as being obsequious to foreign leaders, or was Dubya just showing his man love to the Saudi royal???

ZOMG! The US President sucked face with a Muslim dictator!!!

Silverfiddle said...

Green Eagle made the comparison, not me.

And nowhere have I defended any administration for sucking up to dictators or kissing Saudis (or bowing to them, as President Obama has done in real pictures).

I think the whole thing is disgusting.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Other presidents have bowed before world leaders--Nixon bowed before Mao, a really, really big Commie. [photo is on the internet.]

But, see, the difference here is Mr. Obama's skin color. We and the rest of the world understand what the "disgust" is about.

This is reminiscent of the BS Teabagger claims 'Oh I was up in arms about Bush's budget too!' i.e. it's a bunch of conservative lies gussied up with falsified video images.

I'm surprised Saddam isn't in a Pimp outfit.

Green Eagle said...

And, Silverfiddle, you seem to ignore the fact that the Obama picture is still a malicious forgery, while the Rumsfeld picture is not only real, but is a perfect specimen of the REPUBLICAN kissing up to all manner of dictators that has gotten this country into so much trouble.

Silverfiddle said...

this is too easy...

The pic of him bowing to the Saudi King is not a forgery:


We've all seen the one of him bowing to the Japanese emperor, so I won't bore you with that one.

Kissing up to dictators is a bad thing, regardless of who does it. I think we agree on that.

I've watch a lot of Jane Austen movies, and I can say for sure that a gentleman always bows a little when being introduced. A little bit when running into one another at a ball, too. It's protocol. It's etiquette. It's what the unwashed beer-swilling gas guzzling french-fried obesiteques find as distasteful as a 9 year old boy would. Grow up SF, get some sophistication, read some literature, think a little harder and with a lot more honesty. I'm sick of treating these folks as equals. Enough.

tnlib said...

What? A right winger is expected to know about protocol? And etiquette? Surely you jest!

Silverfiddle said...

Yes, we all need to watch more Jane Austin movies...

I'm surprised you didn't throw guns and Nascar in, Lady.

Thanks for the morning laugh!

The key component lost here by conservatives is there are more methods to achieve victory than the use the club of the US Military.

Of course, conservatives don't understand this technique because Republicans tell them Osama and Saddam are the same people and that they believe...

But, conservatives are hypocrites while it was Treason to disagree with President Bush during a time of war it's Patriotism to hint at assassinating President Obama.

Shaw Kenawe said...

This is how crazy the right is:

Its proponents spit nickles over a courteous gesture to a foreign head of state, and to them THIS is evidence of a president's hatred of America.

A previous president lies to the American people about a foreign dictator's ability to attack this nation and plunges this country into a war of choice that slaughtered millions of men, women, and children and was responsible for the deaths of over 4 thousand Americans--all over a g-d lie. A lie! This is fact.

And they defend that president. But Mr. Obama? He bowed!

It just doesn't get any crazier than that.

Green Eagle said...

You've got that right- a bow, a blow job- justification for impeachment; a million murders- who cares?

We are arguing with the insane.
