First off, I have to say enough of the Bush and Obama comparisons. It doesn’t work. Sure Bush made a lot of mistakes, and the right took issue with things he did shortly after his first inaugural. But the left painted him a swashbuckling cowboy,(no offense to cowboys) with few intellectual credentials. The real brain trust behind him was evil Dick Cheney pulling the strings. This was the characterization the left created. We all know the narrative so well because they were so good at drumming it into us. So good, many accepted it.
Now they are quiet as church mice about Obama’s conniving adventures. The man can do nothing to earn the wrath of the Left. How come? That is a story in itself.
But for a moment think about the Bush years, the left painted him a dummy while crediting him with some of the worst evil this country has seen. Oops, don’t think they are both true. And they assert that Obama is just following those footsteps, much as he’d like to break the pattern.
Even though Obama controlled all branches of the government for a stint, and still controls the Senate. Their narrative continues that Obama is a victim of circumstances — even if he victimized the entire country. However, you won’t get the Left to admit to playing the race or victim cards at every opportunity to defend him.
Actually, Bush and Obama are very different. Bush could have been a lot of things but Obama is a radical Leftist weened on Communism. See there is a difference. What would you expect from a commie, or a radical Leftist these days? Well, they’re pretty much the same thing now. If they aren’t overt Marxists, and I don’ know that percentage, then they are useful idiots who pretty much go along with those who are. They are not the same.
Their beloved Obama studied at the feet of card carrying commies, and actively sought them out. He worked for them, even his doctor is a communist. Does that sound like a victim of circumstances…. beyond his control? Hardly. Say what you will about Bush, that was not one of his attributes. And he didn’t have media and people eating out of his hand no matter what he did.
Maybe we should dispense with another creative notion. The left declares themselves the champions of civil rights and the watchdog for the little guy, the defender of gays or any fashionable group that pops up, including radical Islamists. But that’s only part of their program, it’s the sales brochure to bring them on board. Then, no one leaves the plantation. It isn’t them or their issues they care about but their support. The kicker is many of those “groups” don’t even know or understand what they are supporting.
I can’t forget to mention the liberal Christians and clergy co-opted by commies over the years. (Remember Hill and Obama courted Christians) Even some of them don’t know what agenda they are really supporting. Leftist leaders and pols tell Christians its about their issues and agenda but nothing could be further from reality. It has always been about the commies’ agenda. Not seeing that seems ignorantly naive to us, but just the way it is.
Chock them up to useful idiots.(useful idiots know more about truth than they do) My patience has expired for these people. Their ignorance is not for a lack of being told. So if they were duped it was by their own free will. For Christians, it has been decades in the making. As Hillary said, that “requires their willing suspension of disbelief” — which they quite willingly provide. So we are dealing with Marxist communists, nothing less.
