Obama: Don’t Take Me For Granted

Barack Hussein Obama won’t be around forever, folks, so you’d better appreciate him while he’s here.


“The first time around it’s like lightning in a bottle. There’s something special about it, because you’re defying the odds. And as time passes, you start taking it for granted that a guy named Barack Hussein Obama is president of the United States,” Obama said. “But we should never take it for granted.”

On a related note, just 22% of likely voters feel that the country is headed in the right direction.

I think most of us are looking forward to the day when we don’t have to take it for granted that Obama is around.

    He truly is the most arrogant President I have ever known.

      Well when Teddy Roosevelt and I were in Cuba, he was pretty arrogant, when old Tommy Jefferson and I were at meetings together he was pretty big headed too.

      What do you expect when you are worshipped as a Messiah, sooner or later you believe your admirers. Every truly great man has had to face up to the constant ego massaging, most hate it, some love it and the latter always fall from grace.

        But there’s a HUGE difference between Obama and your two examples….they weren’t empty suits. No wonder comedians have a hard time with Obama jokes, they can never top the metrosexual mugabe himself.

          At least Mugabe is honest (for the most part) about what he wants to do.

    Is this “Out of Context Theater.” Is the fact that you are able to sell this kind of lying bullshit why you believe you are smarter than an artist?

      Bingo flame…..A messiah complex…Saten wanted to be worshiped just like God….Leftists think if they are not God, that they are at least God’s gift to the world and should be treated accordingly…

        Liberals remind me constantly of Friedrich Nietzsche’s confession from the madhouse to the effect that if there were a God, then N. could not be God, so he declared God to be dead. Behind and underneath leftist ideology is deep hatred of any sort of Divine manifestation, in particular Life itself, because life goes against the entropic heat-death for which the leftist yearns: everything gray, flat, dull, safe, unending and evenly distributed. If this sounds like I regard the left as providing the foot-soldiers of Satan, you may regard that as colorful, metaphoric language for something explainable in secular terms, or you may not. It makes no difference.

          The Spirit of Truth showed me long ago who gave the “worlds agenda” to the international progressives, communists, facists. Under The Blood, all things are seen even darkness as daylight by the Lord….The mysteries of the Gospel of Peace that Paul was in chains for…..

          Psalm 91

          3 Surely he will save you
          from the fowler’s snare
          and from the deadly pestilence.
          4 He will cover you with his feathers,
          and under his wings you will find refuge;
          his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
          5 You will not fear the terror of night,
          nor the arrow that flies by day,
          6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
          nor the plague that destroys at midday.
          7 A thousand may fall at your side,
          ten thousand at your right hand,
          but it will not come near you.
          8 You will only observe with your eyes
          and see the punishment of the wicked.

          The Fowlers Snare…The idle rich and elite of the day needed doves for Temple sacrifice. A large business grew up around this “need”. The idle rich paid well for someone to do the dirty work for their necessities. Poor folks had to go out to work and catch their own temple sacrifice. The money changers in the temple would pit one currency against another and take advantage of the poor from distant lands or towns who came to the temple to pay the sacrifice tax the money changers demanded…No choice for the poor.. Work or pay the outrages tax on currency exchange….

          Jesus lost His Temper and overturned the money changers tables while condemning the practice in the house of His Father.

          We now are the Temple of the Holy Ghost who believes in the indwelt Spirit of The Living Jesus who dwells within. Are the worldly money changers and their “fowlers” those who do the bidding of the idle elite still not taking advantage of ‘taxing’ those less fortunate who have to do the work of catching this almighty dollar that they worship and pay large portion to the “fowlers” and the ruling class who’s needs built the systems in the first place?

    Don’t go away mad, owebama, just go away.

  • JustRuss

    The thing is, while it may be slightly out of context of the rest of what he said; taken as a whole both is worsh…er…constituents and his own words over and over show that he thinks he is either a god or God’s gift to the world.

    He’s been groomed to be the great progressive messiah since he was a toddler, conspiracy or not when you look at all the facts of his upbringing it would be an AMAZING coincidence that he grew up to be the lefty wet dream of a Socialist President.

    His career has been greased at least since college to put him on the fast track to where he ended up. How so many people could be duped by an empty suit with a bullshit slogan of equally empty words boggles the mind.

    It is almost the fictionalized Anti-Christ in nature, I don’t know if you could write a better villain and in fact, it often feels like he is taking all of his cues from Nicolae Carpathia!

    ‘Left Behind’ as a blueprint for taking over the world.

    Or was that a hint to some horrific action he is about to make?

  • SigFan

    Oh, not to worry. We don’t take you for granted, but we do take it for granted that you are the sorriest excuse for a President this country has ever seen. You will not be missed by many.

  • mickey_moussaoui
