Barack Obama: Soup-Ladler-in-Chief

Do the words “unclear on the concept” ring a bell? Obama seems hellbent (imagery intended) not to commemorate the cowardly attack on American soil that killed three thousand innocent men women and children on 9/11/2001. We have discussed his trying to substitute his “Day of Service” nationally, here , here and Andrew Roman’s take here.

There is a time and a place for volunteering. There is a time and a place for service to one’s community and to one’s neighbors. But there is a time to remember and a time to mourn. You like to compare yourself to Abraham Lincoln, Mr. President? Lincoln’s Gettysburg address was about consecrating a cemetery. About honoring the fallen. About the vision of the Founders and the courage of those who gave their lives to preserve the Republic. The war had wrought a terrible cost upon America. Lincoln didn’t try to change the subject. He didn’t try to substitute a pet project of his own. “Hey! I’ve got a great idea! Instead of moping around this cemetery, let’s all pick up trash along the highway! That will make America beautiful again!”

When the time came for the President of the United States to honor the fallen, Lincoln was not in the mess tent passing out hardtack.

Mr. President: There must be at least three hundred better days out of the year for you to ladle soup on a “Day of Service”. (Okay two hundred if we rule out your golf dates!) There are a minimum number of days that the Commander-in-Chief needs to put on his big boy pants and stand up for his country: The Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day and 9/11 come to mind.

It has been pointed out, that “community service” is often given out as punishment to some who have committed a minor offense. Mr. President: Do you believe that America needs some form of penance or punishment? Did you really sleep through twenty years of Jeremiah Wright and his “chickens coming home to roost” sermons?

Are you part of the “blame America first” crowd, Mr. President? Then why are you acting like it?

    A country of soup kitchens is what Obama had in mind! What better way to control the proletariat?

      good call woof….if barry made a big deal out of this visit proof would be hear saying hes a media whore grasping at straws to increase his poll numbers.

      this was a horrible thing, but it has turned into a media event and nothing more for 99.9% of the nation.

        Is the “pop” in Jimmmypop the sound that air makes when it evacuates your head?  Mind read much?  I have praised Obama for things he has gotten right (admittedly very few). Why do brain dead liberals always try to imagine that whatever conservatives say, they would say the opposite just to criticize Obama? Has it ever penetrated the partisan, impenetrable ignorance you hold dear, that sometimes we criticize Obama just because he has screwed up? (I would have said “Screwed the pooch”, but you liberals probably would have gone off on me for accusing Obama of diddling White House dog, Bo.)

        And where do you get your 99.9% figure, poptart? Pull figures out of your arse much?

        “if barry made a big deal out of this visit proof would be hear saying hes (sic) a media whore”

        As evidenced by my praise for…Bill Clinton, who took an entirely appropriate tone as he memorialized the heroes on Flight 93. (I guess all the soup kitchens were full! )

    Finally a job that matches his reported college GPA….sooner or later everyone finds their niche in life,  problem is with Obama—he created the need for soup kitchens for millions of Americans…..

    wonder if he’ll unionize them?……..or agitate them with his community organizer “skills”

    We will all be eating in soup kitchens if Obama gets four more.

    Poofy hates the idea of taking care of the poor.  He wants them to die in commemoration of the 9/11 victims.

    • http://proof-proofpositive.blogspot.com/ Proof

      Hanni: If you ever get a clue, maybe someday you’ll know WTF you’re talking about. I have nothing against taking care of the poor. I have something against trying to turn a memorial day into something else entirely. Have for a long time. But, then, you would have known that had you read any of my links. Or if you could read at all…

      BTW, the new avatar looks far better than the gay guy in the silly hat.  NTTAWWT.

      • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

        Obama paid his tribute to the 9/11 tragedy, you just hate the idea that he is making equally important efforts to recognize the needy who need our attention more than the dead victims of 9/11.

        But WTF would you know about caring for people in need?

        Lastly, who cares what you think about my pictures? You have stolen many pictures of me that you can stare at if you didn’t like my last one. The fact that your body is so grotesque that it can not be viewed on film is not our problem.

        • http://proof-proofpositive.blogspot.com/ Proof

          He “paid his tribute”??? Whether or not he paid anything that day that wasn’t on the taxpayer’s dime, the point isn’t how much of his time he spent during the day, on what, it’s his attempt to hijack the entire day, as I pointed out in several articles last year, and linked to here, that you were either to stupid to read, or so content to marinate in your own ignorance that you did not bother to further educate your self!  (Hanni educate himself? Stop laughing!)

          “caring for people in need” This post is not about “caring for people in need”, little troll threadjacker, it’s about the attempts of a sitting president to hijack a national day of remembrance for his own purposes. Was the Gettysburg Address about “caring for people in need”, Wankertized? Hell’s bells! I even linked to that, knowing how feeble your Googling skills are!

          In case the thought hasn’t fully formed in your little pea brain (of course it hasn’t!), there are 365 days a year that could be dedicated to public service. There is only one 9/11.

          Your projection about your self loathing is duly noted. Let me guess…when you drove your mom’s minivan over the cliff, you landed on your face?

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            Your illiteracy and irrelevance is very comical.  Q: How many consecutive years did Lincoln memorialize the Gettysburg address? A: None.  Are you kidding me with this, how is this even similar in any way?

            Whether or not he paid anything that day that wasn’t on the taxpayer’s
            dime,
            the point isn’t how much of his time he spent during the day, on
            what, it’s his attempt to hijack the entire day,

            What does “the taxpayer’s dime” have to do with your feeble minded complaint?  You are sort of a weird and crazy little fella, aren’t you? 

            Just because you think 9/11 should be an all day mournful event doesn’t mean most Americans do or that our politicians think it should be.

            Americans care about those who are hurting today and we care about saving lives now.  Those lives are forever lost and hundreds of thousands of innocent Arabs have paid for this day with their blood.

            You are a blood thirsty creature, aren’t you.

            Just as Bush said…..”there was a considerable blood lust”…………it’s true, there was and there still is today by the likes of you.

            Anyone ever tell you you have more projection than a multiplex, Hanni? You catch me in a single typo and you call me “illiterate”?  Just shows how faulty your judgment really is.

            The fact that you want to be me so badly you can taste it is duly noted. The rest of your blather isn’t worthy of notice.

    At least Obama is gaining experience so he can do something after he’s defeated in 2012.  Would you like fries with that soup?

      If he has to ask, ” Do you want fries”, he’ll need a teleprompter.
