Cause for Termination, Lack of Respect

I’m going to combine a couple of stories I ran across from the Daily Caller, because I think they have a common cause. What is that cause? That cause is disdain for the people of the United States. It seems to me that Obama in everything he does shows disrespect for the common people of this country, and I think the country has had enough of it.

 

President Barack Obama was greeted with fleeting applause and extended periods of silence as he offered profuse praise to soldiers and their families during an Aug. 31 speech in Fort Bliss, Texas.

His praise for the soldiers — and for his own national-security policies — won cheers from only a small proportion of the soldiers and families in the cavernous aircraft-hanger.

The audience remains quiet even when the commander-in-chief thanked the soldiers’ families, and cited the 198 deaths of their comrades in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The audience’s reaction was so flat that the president tried twice to elicit a reaction from the crowd.

“Hey, I hear you,” he said amid silence.

The selected soldiers who were arrayed behind the president sat quietly throughout the speech.

CNN and MSNBC ended their coverage of the speech before it was half-over.

 

Then there is this from the University of Colorado that says the people have had about their fill of contemptuous incompetence as well:

 

A presidential election prediction model developed by two University of Colorado professors points to a big win for GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney in November.

The model, the only of its kind to use more than one state-level economic indicator, has correctly predicted the winner of every presidential election since 1980.

It predicts Romney winning the electoral college by a 320-218 margin and winning 52.9 percent of the popular vote when only the two major parties’ candidates are considered, the Associated Press reported Thursday.

Romney, it concluded, will win every state currently considered by pollsters to be a swing state, including Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, Virginia, Colorado, New Hampshire and North Carolina.

The model even predicts Romney will win Minnesota and Maine’s Second Congressional District, the electoral votes of which most pollsters consider to be “safe” for President Obama. Nevada and Iowa are the only swing states it assigns to Obama.

“Based on our forecasting model, it becomes clear that the president is in electoral trouble,” explained Kenneth Bickers, a political science professor at the University of Colorado-Boulder who developed the prediction model with Michael Berry of University of Colorado-Denver.

“The apparent advantage of being a Democratic candidate and holding the White House disappears,” Berry noted, ”when the national unemployment rate hits 5.6 percent. The incumbency advantage enjoyed by President Obama, though statistically significant, is not great enough to offset high rates of unemployment currently experienced in many of the states.”

 

Not the best week ever for the Hopenchange crew.

    But a really good week for those hoping for real change as opposed to the synthetic stuff :)

    • It surely was. What I found telling at Bliss was that the troops were more concerned about the mission than the wounded, there is the signal difference between Obama and traditional Americans, laid bare. :-)

      • JessicaHof says:

        Yes, that’s in in a nutshell. Soldiers accept there could be a price, but they pay it because they are men on a mission. Obama simply cannot comprehend such men and their mind set.

        As the wife of a serving officer, my stomach sinks every time I hear there has been a casualty, but as a soldier’s wife I straighten my shoulders and know my husband’s views and would not dream of sullying him by whining.

        Being a soldier’s wife means accepting what soldiers accept – there is a price for duty and freedom – and someone will pay it, if not my man, then some other woman’s husband or son – and we’re one family here.

        • Very beautifully said, Jessica.

          I’ve said it before but, Thank you, both of you, for your service.

        • JessicaHof says:

          And thank you my dear friend for understanding, as so many do. It is an utter indictment of Obama that he does not. We don’t want his pity or his empathy, we want him and our leaders to get on and decide what this mission is about and give clear orders to fulfil it.

        • Many, many of us do, and as I hope your people do as well. I’m nobody’s idea of a soldier, and put that dream of mine away long ago but, I do remember that the mission comes before all. I will say that I’ve never pitied a soldier, I admire them far too much too demean them that way.

        • JessicaHof says:

          Thank you my dear friend :)

        • Certainly my dear friend, you are very welcome. :-) We forget far to often our warriors but, we care, and we care a lot.

        • JessicaHof says:

          :)

        • :-)

  2. Let’s just hope Obama doesn’t try something incredibly stupid before the election and try to either cancel or postpone it. This was more than a little disturbing: http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/49210

    • Many of these reports are disturbing, that one is, still the only thing to do is continue the mission, trusting in God, come what may.

  4. With this guy anything is possible, taking us into another war just before the elections, martial law. I put nothing beyond this man. There is nothing worse than a liberal that is wounded and cornered. Kind of like a wounded bear. You don;t know what to expect.

    • Except, of course, that it will be bad.
