ANDY MARTIN: The Political Obituary of President Barack Obama

December 8, 2010

Conservative columnist Andy Martin explains why Barack Obama has written his own obituary as a political leader: Obama had to “Destroy the Democratic Party to save it.” And liberal Democrats are none too happy about being “saved” by Barry Obama. Or, as that great theologian Reverend Jeremiah Wright would say, “Barack Obama’s chickens are coming home to roost.” Chicken salad anyone? Or chicken ____?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

ANDY MARTIN EXPLAINS WHY PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA HAS ABANDONED THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS WHO MADE HIM A “SUN GOD”

MARTIN SAYS IT WAS AND IS LIBERAL DEMOCRATS WHO WERE NEVER OPEN TO COMPROMISE ON TAX POLICY

OBAMA HAS DELIVERED THE “POLITICAL HEMLOCK” TO LIBERAL DEMOCRATS; WILL THEY DRINK IT?

ANDY MARTIN’S 2008 PREDICTION HAS COME TRUE: DEMOCRATS ELECTED A “LIBERAL REPUBLICAN” AS PRESIDENT

(NEW YORK)(December 8, 2010) Six and a half years ago I became Barack Obama’s first critic. Later I became the first name on Barack Obama’s enemies list. Obama’s political thugs, led by Robert Gibbs, smeared me. George Soros’ bully boys slimed me. But I kept writing the truth about Barack “Barry” Obama.

While I am personally a conservative, when I write as an analyst I am neither right nor left. I fight to find the facts, and I work to tell the truth. Let the chips fall where they may. But the truth was never what Barack Obama wanted. Barry Obama had pumped himself up to believe he was some sort of “god” who floated above the American people or, as I called him, the “Lion King.” The “truth” was the last thing Obama wanted me to write.

In the wake of the November election Obama has finally had to act like a president, not a sun god. And the Democratic Party’s left is in frenzy. The last thing the Democrats wanted was a mere “president.” They thought they had elected a liberal dictator.

We now find out all of my earlier criticisms about Obama were true, from way back in 2004 to the present date. Obama is really the “little man on the wedding cake” that I called him in 2008.

Yesterday someone from Harvard called Obama an “alien mediator” with “little experience” in leadership. “Alien?” “Little experience?” Those are not kind words:

But Obama’s “Et tu, Brute” moment may have arrived with a bitter attack posted yesterday by an Illinois liberal. It was Illinois liberals, after all, that originally gave us Obama-the-Myth and papered-over Obama-the-Man.

Ellen Gill is a leftist blogger in the north suburbs, and she posted a guest blog by Lee Goodman, a North Shore liberal. Lee Goodman is a former congressional candidate in the liberal 10th congressional district. I have added own annotations to Mr. Goodman’s cri-de-coeur; mine are the capital letters.

Where does Obama go from here? He has become the “Charley Crist” of national politics, abandoned by his own party. Who will become the liberal “David” that will slay “Obama-the-Goliath” in 2012? It’s not clear right now [Hillary Clinton, anyone?]. Democrats elected a liberal Republican in 2008, only they didn’t realize it at the time. Obama may have truly become a “man without a party.”

Obama is pursuing George Bush’s policy in Iraq, and has doubled down on Bush’s approach in Afghanistan and he is getting ready to teach the Chinese a lesson. He has now adopted the “Bush tax cuts” as Obama’s own. Obama has done more to resurrect and rehabilitate George Bush’s reputation than any Republican.

How can liberals run against “Bush tax cuts” in 2012 after adopting them as their own in 2010? What’s next? A “Mission Accomplished” sign for the White House? Is Obama going to a Charley Crist and bolt the Democrats to run as an Independent? Or will he take on the mantle of becoming the Republican candidate for president in 2012? Or just retire and cash in financially, à la Bill Clinton?

As always, I will be fighting to find the facts, and trying to tell the truth. In the meantime, buy a copy (there are a few left) of my book Obama: The Man Behind the Mask, still available from the publisher. It was all there, way back in 2008. I told you so. My book is still all you need to know about Barack Obama. Yes, I knew Barry way back when. When he was still a man, not a god. The “Chicago Obama.”

Obama the Sun God, R. I. P.

[THE CAPITAL LETTERS ARE ANNOTATIONS BY ANDY MARTIN]

Guest Blog by Lee Goodman: Obama Bombs
by Lee Goodman

As the curtain comes up on the second half of his presidency, Barack Obama will find that many of his supporters, disappointed by his poor performance, left during the intermission. They will not be back. [LEFTIST CAPITULATION]

Where will they go? Anywhere but the Democratic or Republican parties, both of which are seen as hopelessly controlled by corrupt individual and corporate interests. [THIS IS TRUE] Many will sit out the next election, and perhaps many more elections after that. After two years of making apologies for an ineffective President and clinging to the hope that he would reveal that his spineless capitulation on major issues was actually a strategic step in his master plan, they are finally talking openly about their feelings of having been betrayed.
[BETRAYAL!]

Having helped elect the nation’s first African-American president [AFFIRMATIVE ACTION], many felt obligated and eager to give Obama a fair chance to settle into the job and find a way to overcome whatever lingering racism might impede his efforts. But his lack of dedication to the causes he was elected to champion has finally led his backers to concede that although race should not be a disqualification, neither should it be used to insulate a president from criticism. One can be both an African-American president and a bad president. [REALITY SETS IN]

Mr. Obama’s inexhaustible desire to get along with those who oppose his purported objectives has left progressives doubting that the goals he spoke of during his campaign were ever really close to his heart. Early on, when he realized he could attract vast contributions, he retreated from his pledge to accept only public funding, pretending that the lobbyists and special pleaders who gave him millions of dollars would not expect or receive anything in return. [TWO-FACED OBAMA, FINANCED BY GEORGE SOROS & CO.] Even as he sought his party’s nomination by promising to stop the wars, he interjected into his speeches the violent language of the militarists and said we must kill our enemies. Turning his back on key supporters, he gave a highly visible role in his inauguration to an opponent of civil rights. Relentlessly, he has trodden upon the hopes of those whom he swore to protect. And most recently, while pledging to protect Social Security, he struck a deal that will rob that system of the revenue it needs, paving the way for its collapse. [THIS IS TRUE] He has outdone Bush by cutting needed taxes that no one was asking to have cut. [BUSH LIVES!]

There may never have been any reason to expect anything more of Obama. He had an undistinguished career as a state senator, then went on to the U.S. Senate where he did virtually nothing except campaign for President. [NOW YOU TELL US] Once in the White House, he chose as his chief of staff a bully who had no desire to put the nation’s or the president’s interests above his own and an attorney general who is now harassing the very individuals who carried the banners of peace and justice under which Obama once paraded. [IS THAT THE GUY WHO WANTS TO BE MAYOR OF CHICAGO?]

On his journey towards failure, Obama also had help – lots of it – within his own party. Instead of challenging him when he rejected their counsel, they played the loyal hacks. [DEMOCRATIC PARTY HACKS; ROUND UP THE USUAL SUSPECTS] Misunderstanding their constitutional duty to be a co-equal branch of government, they mostly deferred to his limp plans. Taking the president and Democratic congress together, there was not enough backbone to support even a moderately strong policy.

The role the Republicans played deserves no more than a passing comment. They sabotaged their own country. [BLAME THE REPUBLICANS FOR OBAMA’S FAILURES]

The situation is not hopeless, but progressives have some very difficult choices to make. First, they will have to decide whether they even want to bother working for the change that Obama preached about but did not try to deliver. To bring about this change, they will have to find new ways of doing things, and they can expect the entrenched powers to resist their efforts. [ST. PAUL’S “PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS?] They will have to struggle mightily and be willing to take personal risks, just to lay the groundwork for reforms that many of them will not see in their lifetimes. They will have to understand that the phrase of the Declaration of Independence, “when in the course of human events,” which led to a momentous revolution more than two hundred thirty years ago, starts with the word “when.” “When” is now.
