This article just gleans with hints of arrogance, an almost godlike superiority complex, and the knack for blaming everyone for his own shortcomings. Other actors in this scripted movie are the Republicans playing the part on the evil MR Smith. And the US citizens who play the cocooned humans living in the Matrix. And we can not forget Valerie Jarrett as the Oracle. Obama obviously plays Neo (the one) living in his imaginary world where he is an untouchable superhuman. And just like with the movie, The Matrix, Obama's matrix isn't real either. Obama must unplug himself from his Matrix of denial if he wishes to retain his presidency.

My own personal feelings are that those that support him, no matter what he does wrong or denies knowing, contributes to Obama's fantasy-land. If you treat someone like a god, they will soon believe it them-self. And this sets a dangerous precedent where the individual is "granted" way too much power. Not being actually given this power though, but granted through allowing him to do whatever he pleases and looking the other way. This is unchecked power.



It's obvious that Obama regards himself as "the one" – a presidential "Neo", a pure leader harassed by the emotionalism, incompetence and malevolence of others. In Obama's Matrix, the Republicans constitute "Agent Smith" -- arrogant malcontents driven by an inexorable anger. The American people are the cocooned humans -- requiring "liberation" from their ideological slumber. Valerie Jarrett is "the Oracle" -- the fountain of hard and necessary understanding. Everyone else? They're "the machine" -- the system that constricts Obama's positive intention.




Of course, there's a big problem here. As with "Neo", Obama's Matrix isn't real. In fact, it's the definition of un-reality: an imitation embraced in order to excuse absent leadership. For many years this pretense has been papered over by the GOP's fetish for political self-immolation. Nevertheless, the GOP doesn't alter the foundational truth -- Obama's Matrix is a dream world divorced from courage and facts.




The president should gaze down to the Resolute Desk at which he works. Etched in its essence is a warning -- hubris portends a dangerous course. The ice is closing. If Obama wants to salvage his presidency, he must unplug himself from his Matrix of denial.

For 8 years, it was Bush's fault, Bush's programs, Bush's taxes, Bush's wars, Bush's decisions, Bush's WhiteHouse, Bush's congress, Bush's laws.

For the past 5 years, it's been Obama is a helpless puppet, he has no control, he is helpless. Obama is a weak, ineffective, hapless political figure. He is small and petty. Vindictive and evil.

He is not a nice person and he is not a good guy and he wants to see the nation of America destroyed.

And with his accomplices in congress and media and the public, he is getting the job done.

Imagine where America would be, if a corrupt government wasn't standing in our way. One day out of absolute necessity we'll have to push it aside, and only then will we start to progress, as a nation and a people.

Okay, it's interesting that the author brought up "The Matrix" as a movie to compare Obama to, because The Matrix was written about Plato's "Allegory of the Cave." I would find it highly unlikely that the author of the article was unaware of this connection.

However, he may not have mentioned it, because it would have taken a few pieces out of his argument. I would say that Obama has a Plato-like view of the world, while most America, especially Republicans and those in the land-locked areas, have an Aristotle-like view.

----------

Oh, Beezer, great to have you join the discussion because it will help me finish off this thought process. Obama himself is more of a Yin, or receptive, personality type who portrays an interest in working together with others and finding positive solutions to problems through brain-storming.

In other words, descriptions like "weak" and a "pushover" are entirely appropriate.

----------

When you are talking about Republicans, they can be more of the Yang type. A strong Yang leader would force his or her agenda down the throats of everyone else involved, regardless of the consequences, and regardless of how intelligent their choices were.

---------

Now, I said the words "portrays an interest in working together with others [and being receptive] because that is what he portrays.

However, there is a chance that isn't entirely the case. His history, for example, of learning constitutional law (the best way to learn how to circumvent the constitution) and the speech that he gave that helped get him elected

(which I went to personally and had to have been written by experts that are not available to even the top politicians, due to them probably requiring high security clearance or access to intelligence regarding certain aspects of social psychology) in order to get him elected vs. describing his policy)

as well as the fact that he beat Hillary Clinton in the primaries suggest that some organization that is not normally a power player in American Politics (more than likely Eastern in origin) had been planning on getting Obama elected as President possibly even from the time he was born, for all I know.

----------

His birth certificate being forged was always interesting to me, because if Obama was working for some other organization and they knew that he wasn't legitimately President, that would give them power over him (blackmail).

While everyone else is thinking that Obama forged his birth certificate to become President, I have been thinking that his birth was seen as an opportunity by some other organization to keep him on a short leash.

---------

That's my take on it, it's a bit more complicated.

The other day listening to talk radio and the news, the theme of the day was how Obama doesn't take responsibility for any of these failures in his presidency. He certainly passes the buck. So, anyways, the next morning after hearing it all, first thing I do is turn on the news and there he is, a recap of an earlier speech and what does he say, "I take full responsibility...(wait for it, wait for it)...in improving the website going forward." LMAO! Unbelievable, this guy. For a second there, I actually thought he was going to take some responsibility for the debacle Obamacare or this billion-dollar website has become, but no. He'll take responsibility going forward if it should finally work. S&F for you OP on posting this editorial.

OK Darkbake, don't leave us hanging like that. I am not a Philosophy expert.

What is the differance?

Oh sorry!

From what I can tell, Aristotle describes your basic Western society, with marriage, families, and he says that private property is necessary in order to promote altruism in the community between men.

He also says that slavery is necessary, although he allows for a "slave" to be something like an Ox, so I'm guessing he would be a proponent of technology taking this role, as well.

Aristotle does mention that on rare occasions, there will be men that are better suited to be homemakers, and women that are suited to join society - so I think he is aware that it is a Yin . Yang thing, however, he is a proponent of patriarchy.

----------

So I'm about to launch into an explanation of Aristotle and Plato that I'm not sure anyone else even thinks about, although I have done enough research on other subjects like psychology and physics to kind of think I might be onto something.

--

I could pretty much understand Aristotle, which I was surprised about, although Plato gets a little more confusing. From what I can tell, Plato was a rich kid who ran away from home and got involved with some sketchy crowds in Italy, getting kidnapped and sold into slavery on more than one occasion, and had to get help from his friends, parents, you know, stuff like that, to get out of it.

As far as Aristotle goes, and yeah we are gonna step back on this real quick so we can move onto how Plato would view Aristotle, I believe that humans in particular have a society that exists based on arbitrary rules, or cultural norms that have nothing to do with anything.

And those arbitrary rules do exist, but

This would be Western society, however, not Eastern - Eastern society is not based on arbitrary rules. The moment you are born, you understand Eastern society, I think, although I'm halfway thinking that there could be something going on with the genes of people with White ancestry that affect their thinking processes.

--

At any rate, the reason Eastern society is so hard to understand for a Westerner is because Westerners whole world-view is made of lies, literally. Someone makes something up, and it's "true," instead of observing reality and then coming up with a conclusion based on that.

Have you ever been confused about why things work the way they do, for example, why someone won't hire you for having a tattoo even though it has nothing to do with your work abilities? That would be because Westerners are absolutely insane, not because you are. But - they are insane *and* outnumber you.

--

So a lot of Plato's writing was about this guy Socrates, and Socrates kept on asking questions that couldn't be answered, and the reason they couldn't be answered is because there wasn't enough science then (or now) to explain that kind of thing.

These days, feminists try to "explain" how Patriarchal societies aren't healthy, but they don't have an explanation for WHY they work the way they do - the main explanations could be the neurological structure of the Western male human, or there could be some kind of channeling going on - in either case, feminism fails to take into account the fact that males may not have a choice to act like women or not.

Even Richard Dawkins, an Atheist, has that as his main flaw - he spends all of his time bashing religious people, but none of his time explaining how religion works on a psychological level, and that's the more important topic.

--

There is, however, a second aspect to Plato - as the observer of society, and not entangled in it in a quantum manner, he is able to see ways that things could be improved. He believed in a Philosopher King - that would be someone kind of like Obama - who I guess acts as an observer and helps others reach their full potential by not having their own agenda, something like that.

No worries darkbake, I appreciate the response. I would even venture far enough out on that limb to say I follow you.....I think.

Interesting article, I remember when the same description could have been under another president in another time.

Arrogance is nothing new when it comes to those that achieve positions of incredible responsibility along power.

But Is something different this time, see Obama is the first African American president in the history of this nation, that along is enough to justify the arrogance and godlike superiority complex, but also it comes with the reality that everything this president does will be scrutinized, dissected and viewed under a microscope

For many Obama is an idol for others he is a failure, but regardless of personal opinions and the legacy of his presidency, he will be in history as the first black president in the history of this nation and that's something nobody can take away.

I just said it the best I could, yeah... I've been having trouble with long posts as of late. I went over it and edited it down as well.

I do write long posts but I have been trying my hand at a few ways to make them more readable


Aristotle does have a few issues, I think, like supporting slavery and misogyny. He was Plato's student, though, so maybe he saw Plato's ideas fall through in practice and responded to that.

you're more western than you think, then, cause in eastern society, half their population is missing (females) because apparently being female when you're born is worse than having a tattoo

Look guys, this is the problem: we are being conditioned to accept that the POTUS is not the top of our pyramid. He even said, "I'm the president, ill take the blame" and "the buck stops here". If you wanna lay down and take it because he's " not bush" or because he's "black" then you deserve what you get. But I refuse to quietly drown on this sinking ship all because of politcal correctness.

We the people need someone to hold accountable. Otherwise were are all powerless. Screw political ideology. Screw party affiliation. Do you want to live in the land of the free or North Korea?

First black president???You say that as if it means a GD thing. Who cares what color the man was that killed you - you are still dead. Look beyond racism. The man is supposedly responsible for the fate of more than 300,000,000 people and all you can say is " at least he's the the first black president; that's something." You're either a closet black supremacist or you suffer from chronic white guilt. Either way you are blinded by racism. You play checkers while those in power play chess. You know what- f...k it. Go back to sleep.

It's a little late for a major paper to be reporting this but warp speed is better than none at all. Wonder how long the author will keep their job. I'm not aware of any president whose humility was their greatest quality but there has always been something different about this one. The constant conflict behind closed doors is telling. Everyone else is 'always' wrong if it is contrary to what his agenda is - and he does not like being wrong.

History tells us this is very dangerous - if not kept in check. If he continues to beat everyone else down, override them, and relentlessly fight to get his way at all costs, all while American's support that behavior - this equals the making of a dangerous person.

They got it wrong.

Obama as Neo??? Please......

Obama is Agent Smith and EVERY politician is just a replica. The real Neo is still out there somewhere, hopefully to emerge somewhere to destroy Smith and his bots.

My favorite part of the movie was watching Smith fail to understand why he lost. I would pay to see that same expression on the magnificent one's face, right after he's handed impeachment papers. We should remove every politician from elected positions and start from scratch.

Jackie Mason is not my idol but the guy offers some good words on the Drone-JSOC-loving child murderer presently occupying the WH.


“Never did I expect a guy like this, the head of a country, to blatantly lie to your face, and then not only lie to your face, then lie about the fact that he never lied. Then lie again about the next lie he told. There used to be a time when you would worship the president, even if you didn’t like him. You knew he told the truth because he’s the president of a country. Now, he’s the only guy in America who would have the nerve to lie this much.


Jackie Mason
“You say to yourself, ‘Wait a second. Who am I listening to? Was this guy actually elected to the presidency? A man who’s completely out of his mind, who’s out of touch with humanity, with America, who doesn’t seem to know what’s going on here? Does he read a paper?’

“A guy like this should be locked up … If he wasn’t the president, he’d be in jail or in a sanitarium. He wouldn’t be outside talking to people in this condition. He would be considered a danger to his own his own health, to his own life.
