Matthew Lynch, Ed.D. wrote this piece of foolishness in the Huffington Post. Let me say that if I was ever inclined to show any level of respect for anybody with a doctorate in Education (include Jill Biden) that inclination is forever dead with this piece of tripe.
Here’s how the worship starts [cue organ music]…
I have yet to find the words to describe the overwhelming sense of satisfaction I felt on Nov. 4, 2008 when Obama won the popular vote by 53 percent. With tears in my eyes, and joy in my heart, I stood alongside people of color across the nation as we celebrated America’s first inauguration of a black president. As a young black man, I felt a true sense of patriotism as I witnessed our country rally together to show, finally, that we are more concerned about who is the most qualified man for the job, regardless of race or age.
The “most qualified man for the job”. That would be a community organizer who’s never held a job in the private sector and never accomplished anything in the public sector. He’s a man who, as a state senator, voted “Present” on every issue of substance so he didn’t have a record he might have to defend. A man who, as President, has built a completely insular administration, and refused to be held accountable for anything.
Let’s look at a few of Dr. Lynch’s dirty dozen.
1. He is for The People. Say what you will about Barack Obama, but unlike the many presidents who preceded him, he cares about what is best for the greater good.
Ack. Barack Obama cares so much for “The People” that he’s spent the last four years lying to them about their healthcare so he could nationalize it. He cares so much for “The People” that he injected himself into a mixed race self-defense shooting in Florida that caused riots and nearly sent an innocent man to prison. He’s a real caring guy.
2. He is for civil rights. He has consistently spoken on behalf of the disenfranchised, the underdog and the most controversial members of society -despite the fact that it was politically unpopular to do so at the time. […] Obama’s open support of gay marriage speaks to his core values and his inherent belief that there truly should be justice for all.
Whatever Dr. Lynch studied, it sure as heck wasn’t history. It hasn’t been “politically unpopular” to talk about civil rights for well over 60 years. And back when it was politically unpopular, that was because of people like Al Gore’s dad who filibustered civil rights legislation.
As far as that comment about gay marriage and his “open support”, it certainly does speak to Obama’s core values. On that Dr. Lynch and I are in complete agreement. In 2008 Senator Obama was absolutely opposed to gay marriage, a position he held steadfast to until it was politically expedient to have a change of heart. Barack Obama’s most deeply held core value is expediency.
3. He is for one race -the human race. In just a few short years, Obama’s professional achievements and continued demonstration of equality and integrity have done wonders for race relations. America has never been more unified as a people than it has been under the direct leadership of Barack Obama. Finally, the racial lines that have divided blacks and whites for decades seem to be narrowing.
Huh? Under President Obama’s and picked Attorney General, we have the most racially charged Civil Rights Division in history. Or, he could talk to George Zimmerman.
4. He is for a healthcare system that brings hope and healing to the hurting. Obama’s healthcare plan has allowed uninsured Americans to reap the benefits of a universal healthcare system. A suffering child should never be turned away because his or her mother doesn’t have health insurance.
Been in a cave for past couple of months there Doc? So far, less than 100,000 people have signed up for ObamaCare. In the same time about 5,000,000 people have lost insurance policies that they liked. It’s not likely to get better because the youngsters that the whole Ponzi scheme depends on aren’t likely to sign up in the huge numbers that are required. And, about that “suffering child”, no person is EVER turned away from an emergency room in the US, with or without insurance.
OK, that’s four out of twelve. After I clean up the vomit and buy a new case of scotch I might think about taking on the other eight. They don’t get any better, as a matter of fact, several are even worse. That’s what’s we’re looking at if I find the intestinal fortitude, and a case of scotch, to complete this effort.
