I'll be the first to admit it. I fell for the hope and change dream in the false belief that the election of Barack Obama meant an absolute triumph for the little guy, and that he and Joe Biden you know had our back, instead of our back up against the wall, heck i'd climbed the freaking wall and was hanging from the ceiling throughout the Bush years. I ruined my life and i'm a Canadian. So i wept openly during his inauguration. I might have even said "thank GOD" or something to that effect. I went for it all the way down the line.

During a lunch meeting with a client, i expressed my supreme hope and optimism that things were about to change, and for the better. I said it with a knowing smile, utterly confident in my assessment of the world situation, as if Obama would bring healing to a nation wounded by the 9/11 attacks and the ensuing wars.

For some reason i was consoled by it. So i climbed down off the wall, and started to get a life. And everything was good... birds were singing, the sun shon brightly, the wind like a breeze blew freely - Liberty was in the air!

..until, that is, Mr. Obama proceeded, to carry on, with absolute 100% continuity, every single one of the policies that arose during the historical nightmare or what i have come to refer to as the "oh oh's".

I figured it was ok, and that everything was in good hands. I prayed for the man, for the office of the Presidency, for the United States and the World at large.

I was a turning point in my life, first 9/11, then the election of Barack Obama who was going to make the world right again.

Boy was i ever wrong.

He (my client) with whom i shared my ebullient outlook on the state of affairs upon the historic election of Barack Hussein Obama - looked at me, i can remember it now in hindsight, you never see these things at the time of course, with a slight pity at my ignorance, and said simply that when he either doesn't bring deliverance &/or continues with the status quo, that the American people will quickly change their hearts and minds, and given that no one man even even if President of the United States (sure sounds impressive) can possible put things back together again as they once were - his entire Presidency was doomed from the beginning.

Smart man.

And Engineer. Had it all figured out before anyone.

I didn't really listen to him then.

What he was saying sounded absurd to me. Not even in the realm of believable or conceivable, so blinded was i by my bright hope and faith.

Just like Glen, my client, said - nothing but a disappointment.

This is not a condemnation of the man, the person whoever he is, Barry - but of the entire system, which he inherited and then ran with the ball down the field for what amounts to an evil agenda and the looming prospect of a totalitarian police state. He moved that ball down the field, even accelerated the process.

He didn't change course, on the way to "Prison Island". He did nothing whatsoever to undo the wrongs or heal the wounds that wounded us, simply BECAUSE we saw him run that ball down the field, but the team that he plays for, they wear nothing but black and don't play by the rules, and that's dangerous.

And as far as i can tell the ball has been fumbled, so there's it's an interception - as the people become relevant again while the fruits of the ruling class the "elite" is clearly seen and recognized for what it is.

The world is changing and will change, but not by any help or assistance whatsoever of Barack Obama when push comes to shove and the data, is in.

Big government is not a good thing, as modern history attests to.

Will we all learn though, that's the thing..

I don't see how we can't.

I know now that i was totally blinded and mistaken in my overall assessment of the situation.

Did they restore Liberty, and Justice, which bends to the ends of the universe?

Did they make any move in that direction whatsoever?

Not.

Sad to say, and for me of all people, given how much i am moved by these things and God willing also move others, but i was terribly mistaken.


He lost his mojo because he didn't change a damn thing, not where it really needed changing, but only adopted and even accelerated the various leftover doctrines of the Bush years, done with a brilliant whitetoothed smile, but he never got done what needed to be done for the sake of the very cause of Liberty itself, which makes the sun shine and the birds chirp and the winds of liberty to rustle the trees with fresh air.

Someday.

Everything needn't have changed if the very change itself was based on a monstrous lie.

Why Obama went with the corporate whores is beyond me, but he totally changed, not America, he was the only thing that really changed, but the overall historical nightmare continued unabated, and now the American people have woken up.

Good morning... welcome back to the real world.

Bu bye Mister Obama. You may no longer be relevant to the American people any more. They were utterly exhausted and you've gone and burned them out.

It's too tiring trying to hang on to that early hope and optimism, it wasn't based in reality.

It's funny though in a way so thanks for the irony, for the lesson learned, namely that slick politicians fundamentally can't be trusted unless we the people become them and run for office for all the right reason, en mass, a new generation, but for the all the right reasons, the one's Mr. Obama promised but did not deliver on.

The flame and the throne is ours when the "relevant political community" has become no longer relevant.

Their darkness is our foil for a new age of reason informed by spirit and truth, love and mutuality as the very basis and cornerstone of an authentic Civility without which there cannot be a functional Civil Society.

The keepers of the flame dropped the ball, to use a mixed metaphor, and, yet again "it was the stone that was rejected by the builders that became the keystone."


Cheers,

NAM

Don't feel bad. You weren't alone. A lot of people bought the slick media package and preacher cadence that was Obama.

I didn't and neither did my husband. We saw him coming at the Democratic Convention in '04 when we saw him speak. We predicted then that he was going to be Veep, either him or Sebelius. We were just a bit off.

My husband grew up mostly in the South. Obama has the speaking cadence of a Southern Baptist preacher. It's designed to draw you in and it's sort of hypnotic and rhythmic. Once my husband realized that, we stopped listening and started reading Obama's speeches so as not to be fooled or miss anything. We also looked at his record and his past where so many people refused to go. It was all there. It was plain as day for anyone who was willing to go and look.

But no one did, and the media certainly wasn't telling.

Great post. Truly... and there were a few brief months when Obama was first running for president that I felt the same way you described in your thread. A couple of months later I started realizing that everything this man was saying and promising all sounded too good to be true and the way he had people eating out of the palm of his hand just from SPEAKING began to seem eerie to me. I was always told that if something was too good to be true, that it usually was and that there was no such thing as a free lunch. Both of those seemed to be in abundance where Obama was concerned so I did not vote for him. To be fair though... I do picture most all of them to be "silver tongued devils" saying whatever is necessary to get where they want to be. It isn't just Obama. He isn't the first and he won't be the last.

We grab on to any kind of hope we can when all hope seems to be lost. He ran a campaign on that, and he took it home. His handlers did a brilliant job. They knew human nature and used that to their advantage.

I do continue to hope that things will improve for us and others all around the world, but that hope seems to be about as bleak as ever at this point. Some days I am sure the world is being unraveled on purpose and other days I think we may deserve exactly what we get because we all sat back and let things go until it seems there is no way in hell we can ever get back to a more simple time, and live more simple lives.

Now I am just rambling. I just wanted to say that your post was great and that you were far from alone in your first feelings about Obama. All any of us can do is try to right the wrongs in whatever way we can while hoping and praying for the best outcomes in the future. We can't let the last rays of hope just slip away simply because the effort seems fruitless at this point.

All you had to do was... "google.com, "obama", and you would have not voted." Instead, you did not "search" and this is what happened.

1st step, google.com, or yahoo.com...etc
2nd step, Type Obama...
3rd step, enlightenment and truth about this man.

1 minute of your time. You failed. 30 seconds if you are a fast typer.

Theres nothing particularly new about a politician who promises more than he can deliver.

I think its obvious given the state of affairs in the US that there is no president in this current climate that is able to make any significant changes especially one that seeks to take a bipartisan role in politics. As we have seen, that has got him nowhere.

As for expecting a president to heal then nation? This is a massive and unrealistic expectation for an adult to hold for problems that are too deep and too entrenched for well meaning from a president to go anywhere.

The political, financial and global climate left little room for nothing more than setting a stable ship. You will see more of the same for the next few presidents regardless of what they say to be elected.

Romney would have been far worse or any other Republican candidate, so it doesn't really change a thing. The world didn't change, america didn't become communist, socialist or Marxist and whatever other alphabet soup of words media propagandists predicted.

So its not about Obama, its about the state of the country and how long it can reasonably take to become stable again. There still some time to go.

All he needed was our hope and willingness to change....and the House, Senate, and Supreme Court.....and Russia, China, The EU to back him....and new industries, innovation, and ideas....and unlimited tax resources, a balanced budget, more credit to borrow.....and peace brokerage in the Middle East....and a Green Movement, end Global Warming....and most importantly, more time.

He never had mojo. He expects the flock to lead the shepherd. Bring all of this to me...afford me this...I will sign it into law as mine, for you who cannot help yourselves.

What a ringer. A real stand up guy. Rubber stamp man.

We have the mojo, he wants it, but he cannot have it...he is not worthy. He is not THE ONE.

America will get her mojo back, when we give it back to HER.

Thanks.

It was designed to make you also cry and then laugh out loud, in tears of sorrow that turn to tears of joy at the greater realization in the triumph at the expense of what amounts to utter absurdity, and nonsense and LIES seemingly to no end, but they always do come to an end..

We've already moved on, but "they" don't even know it, yet.

it's hilarious, imho.

True irony, and a double bind, wherefrom it becomes safe, for us, to even begin to think about praying for them.., and that's REALLY funny, and sad or funny-sad but in a really good way that gets the wind blowing back into that once proud American flag.

It's possible, so long as EVERYONE changes their minds and believes in something novel and something that is truly helpful, and not hurtful, or greedy, or evil.

Then, beyond the point of demarcation that it becomes SAFE (in good humor) to pray for them, our very prayers only increases the double bind on everything that must be bound, for the sake of truth and life and love and liberty. I hope you see that dear reader, how powerful we are.

But we do also need to penetrate "the beltway" of DC and kick all the whores straigth to kingdom come. I think when they see us coming they'll flee like cockroaches, in a panic, and live out the rest of their lives in relative luxury, neither seen nor heard - irrelevant, but consoled if they so choose to humble themselves and repent.

You cannot wish condemnation upon your worst enemy, and that's where i differ from all the Obama-haters, i don't judge, it's just an evaluation, which makes it more amuzing by many orders of magnitude than just hate hate hate. It's actually very funny and enjoyable and satisfying.

Not even Obama could put Humpty Dumpty back together again!

But WE can. YES WE CAN.

The other thing we started to quickly notice about him is that everything he was promising was indefinite and open ended. It invited you to fill in the blanks and make of him what you thought you wanted him to be. That's how he could be everything so many people wanted their ideal candidate to be, and it was another reason why he was ultimately doomed to fail.

America will get her mojo back, when we give it back to HER.


Ooooo eeeeeew, no, you didn't just say that!

AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

It crossed my mind as i was "prophesying" there - she's not the one, but just another variation of him, with looks to KILL!



NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!


Just no.

No, we, can't.

Do you realize what you just said?!

Doesn't take a prophet either, to figure out what you were saying and who you were talking about.

This isn't a partisan politic thread.

It can't be hijacked by either side.

He had to do more than just talk.

He's like that guy you hire because he talked a great game in his interview, but when it comes to the actual job he's clueless and just screws everything up.

I said it with a knowing smile, utterly confident in my assessment of the world situation, as if Obama would bring healing to a nation wounded by the 9/11 attacks and the ensuing wars.


I always wondered about that... After riding the bandwagon to vote for the first black president what hope and change did you expect from a person whose greatest achievement was to be a community organizer in a community he never actually had to live in, and then to get voted in as a wet behind the ears, less than two year congressman?



He didn't change course, on the way to "Prison Island". He did nothing whatsoever to undo the wrongs or heal the wounds that wounded us, simply BECAUSE we saw him run that ball down the field, but the team that he plays for, they wear nothing but black and don't play by the rules, and that's dangerous.

And as far as i can tell the ball has been fumbled, so there's it's an interception - as the people become relevant again while the fruits of the ruling class the "elite" is clearly seen and recognized for what it is.


Not only did he not change course but he went full Bush retard, i.e. Bush but 10 times worst.



Big government is not a good thing, as modern history attests to.


Once again, what was in his speeches that suggested anything but an out of control Government? All I heard was a guy that wanted the Government to control EVERYTHING...He is true to the course on this and people are somehow surprised...why?



He lost his mojo because he didn't change a damn thing, not where it really needed changing, but only adopted and even accelerated the various leftover doctrines of the Bush years, done with a brilliant whitetoothed smile, but he never got done what needed to be done for the sake of the very cause of Liberty itself, which makes the sun shine and the birds chirp and the winds of liberty to rustle the trees with fresh air.


As I said Bush on retard...but Hillary will save us...that is how stupid the population is.



Why Obama went with the corporate whores is beyond me, but he totally changed, not America, he was the only thing that really changed, but the overall historical nightmare continued unabated, and now the American people have woken up.


He has not changed, been true to form, just not true to his word, but the American people have not woken up, sorry to say.



The keepers of the flame dropped the ball, to use a mixed metaphor, and, yet again "it was the stone that was rejected by the builders that became the keystone."


The self appointed keeper of the flame was nothing more than a left wing something, can't even call it anything on either side of the political spectrum. He wants big Government to control everything while being a whore to corporations.

Once again what was it, other than his skin, that people could even suggest he would be anything other than what he HAS been the last 6 years.

I completely agree with you on this one. There is one difference between Hillary and Obama IMO. Obama is a puppet. I firmly believe he does what he is told at all times and really doesn't care what happens afterwards. Hillary is cold, hard and calculating. She would not be a puppet... but a puppet master. She will knowingly and happily wreak havoc on anything and everything in her way. She is fully awake, aware, an indifferent to anybody's suffering. She, herself will take charge and rule with an iron fist destroying everything in her path. I truly believe she would revel in the chaos she would leave in her wake.

It's all in the eyes. She's scary. Much more so than Obama could ever dream of.

Like I said, i'm Canadian, so i didn't vote for him, but i would have, might even have campaigned, with a signed autograph of his smiling face on my wall even to this very day.

A full third of the American people HAVE woken up and a motivated third is all you need to change everything, please see that my American friends and neighbors.

Come to power!

It's an idea whose time has come and there's nothing more powerful, not even a creeping police and surveillance state, and most certainly not the president or the office of the president, nor even the whole government.

I also fell for the Obama lies, in his first term, but this whole Obama thing only reassure the public and the voters, that in America is not longer any honest politicians that will tackle the shadow government to bring the common people back to priority one.

Political figures will continue to lie, they will continue to screw the working class, work for the private interest that fatten their pockets, and still people will fall for the lies as long as the deceivers are within their political parties.
