Cartoon photo of Barack Obama trying to shoot a toy gun. It’s ironic that a man who hates guns has a ‘kill list’ and likes to go to war.
The celebrities are coming out in force against Nobel Peace Prize Recipient, Barack Obama, over his latest war. I can’t understand why after his successful departure from Iraq and near-departure from Afghanistan, leaving them to Iran and the Taliban respectively, and then there are his successes collapsing Libya and backing the dictator in Egypt.
I made a few slight changes to the celebrity quotes. See if you can you guess the changes I made – they’re small changes.
Rosie O’Donnell said, “This President wants to invade a sovereign nation in defiance of the UN. He is basically a war criminal. Honestly. He should be tried at The Hague.”
The vocalist for the Dixie Chicks, Natalie Manes, said, “We don’t want this war, this violence…and we’re ashamed…”
How about this exchange:
Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore: “Personally I’d like to see a perp walk coming out of the West Wing of the White House.”
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: “Do you think they’re guilty of war crimes?”
Moore: “Absolutely….I think we need a trial, in this country, where Mr. Biden and Mr. Obama would be brought up on charges for causing the deaths of so many people….”
Matthews: “It’s interesting if you go back….the Nuremberg Trials weren’t about the genocide, it was about waging an aggressive war. I love reading some of that language. It’s interesting.”
“Obama’s actions remind me of Herman Goering’s quote during the Nuremberg Trials, where he stated: ‘…it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.'” Barbara Streisand
“Barack H. Obama is like a bad comic working the crowd, a moron, if you’ll pardon the expression,” Martin Sheen
“He sounds more like a gang leader in South-Central L.A. than one that is trying to institute a policy of democracy and reconstruction in the world.” Al Sharpton
“President Obama is pushing the wrong buttons when he says, ‘Those who are not with us, are against us,’ ” Soros said. “This is an imperialist vision in which the U.S. leads and the rest of the world follows.” George Soros
This is a racist and imperialist war. The warmongers who stole the White House (you call them “hawks”, but I would never disparage such a fine bird) have hijacked a nation’s grief and turned it into a perpetual war on any non-white country they choose to describe as terrorist.” Woody Harrelson
“Who gave Barack Obama the duty to free people around the world?” Mike Wallace
“The war on terrorism is terrorism.” Woody Harrelson said [and he should know all about terrorism with his serial killer father and all.]
“I think Barack Obama is such an embarrassment to America in the way that he doesn’t take the rest of the world into consideration.” Gwyneth Paltrow
“I never saw a clearer choice in my life,” Alec Baldwin said, the administration is “good at only two things: the economy — and by that I mean stimulating the Dow, stimulating corporate profits and the Dow — and waging war. And they basically screwed up both of them, or they’re in the process of screwing up both of them.” Alec Baldwin
“Obama says you’re either with us or against us. I don’t know who ‘us’ is. I say to Mr. Obama—this is what democracy looks like. We will not give our daughters and sons for a war for oil.” Susan Sarandon
“[If] a black is a tyrant, he is first and foremost a tyrant, then he incidentally is black. Obama is a tyrant and if he gathers around him black tyrants, they all have to be treated as they are being treated,” Harry Belafonte said.
“The America we believe in can’t survive another four years of Barack Obama.” Moby
“There are people dying and (the U.S. government is) not putting the boats in the water. I think that’s criminal negligence. I don’t think anybody ever anticipated the criminal negligence of the Obama administration in this situation.” Sean Penn
You guessed the changes, didn’t you? I switched George W. Bush’s name with Barack H. Obama’s in each quote. Funny how the substitution works better than the original quote!
One mustn’t forget Ed Harris’s quote:
“Being a man, I’ve got to say that we’ve got this guy in the White House who thinks he is a man, you know, who projects himself as a man because he has a certain masculinity, and he’s a good old boy, and he used to drink, and he knows how to shoot a gun and how to drive a pickup truck, et cetera, like that. That’s not the definition of a man, God dammit!”
It’s so much better to have an indecisive president who looks behind more than he looks ahead, who used to drink and drug, probably still does, doesn’t know how to shoot a gun, likes to be chauffeured and flown around like a king. That’s not a definition of a man. God dammit!
Let’s get nostalgic for a moment. Remember Barack’s interview with Charlie Savage on December 20, 2007? He said, “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”
Then there was Joe Biden’s 2007 TV interview: “The president has no constitutional authority … to take this nation to war … unless we’re attacked or unless there is proof we are about to be attacked. And if he does, if he does, I would move to impeach him.”
Now here’s a quote from George Bush that might make sense in light of Obama’s recent decision to convince the American people we should fire millions of dollars worth of missiles into $10 empty tents and hit a camel in the butt:
“When I take action, I’m not going to fire a $2 million missile at a $10 empty tent and hit a camel in the butt. It’s going to be decisive.” — George W. Bush, 9/13/01
How about these magnificent quotes by Barack Hussein Obama:
“The issue here is not gonna be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln.”
I don’t oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war.
“I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions.”
“You know, the truth is that right after 9/11, I had a (flag) pin. Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we’re talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for, I think, true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security, I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest…”
The hypocrisy and deceit is mind-blowing. Their own words say it better than I ever could.
As the classy Joe Biden would say: “This is a big f*cking deal.”
