Obama: My Poll Numbers Are Down Because I’m Black

snip:
Barack Obama’s poll numbers are in the toilet not because he’s a bad president. No. It’s because he’s black, don’t you know.

That’s right. In an interview with New Yorker, America’s “post-racial” president said racial tensions are responsible for his lagging popularity.

Yeah, RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT.

If he would do his job, his ratings would go up. If he was my employee (ouch, he IS) he would have been FIRED long ago. And yes, I have fired employees, but never was forced to fire a black one.

What a sad little man. His poll numbers are nine points lower than the crack smoking mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford. That ought to say a little something about "The Leader of the Free World".

His damage control team needs its own damage control team. This guy is a walking talking disaster.

Well I guess I'm prejudiced cause I'm sick and tired of this country running in the RED, not black. By all means brother in chief, PLEASE put is in the black. I say he's the real racist for not putting us in the black.

Are you suggesting that he is not really black but instead is RED (a communist)?

How did he get elected, if everyone is so racist? Can't have it both ways.

It's a deflection to move the spotlight away from the real issues plaguing the POTUS, but you all already know that.

If marxists are red, whatever color is left of that is what barry would be.

I think Mike hammered this one, if anybody is interested in plain ol' logic.

IIRC, totalitarian states in the past have seemed to prefer both red and black in their symbolism. The "software adaptation layer" on top - marxism, socialism, democracy, republic, capitalism (which at least has some basis in the way things actually work), is just an implementation detail to hide the underlying lust for raw power. Which in turn is a very false form of "freedom". But that gets into a long OT discussion.

Maybe I should build a symbolic tree, like a class inheritance in an OO language. At least the software guys would grok it instantly. Honestly, flawed or not, that's how I see all of this when I believe I'm thinking clearly. All this sociological/philosophical stuff is just a smoke screen over "it's all mine (or I'll beat shit out of you and take it anyway) and you have to do what I want you to", in my view.

Sad, isn't it? Seems no one born with a stomach that gets empty doesn't have that pull - it's just that some fight it. Those who do, don't aspire to power, so we have an issue if we let nature take its course.

Personally, I've always seen power as a burden. You are then responsible for those you have power over, and not being omniscient or omnipotent, you know darn well you're not always going to make the correct decision for "what's best" for others, and be incapable of knowing what is truly best anyway. You just can't know what the next turn of the wheel is going to bring, outside of some very broad assumptions - that are still assumptions.

I go by the old biblical (mis, because it's been awhile) quote: "Those among you who would be ministers should wash feet". A good leader helps his people, and makes sacrifices that they will not willingly make. He earns power, he doesn't just "assume authority". I know from experience that this works when you're running a company.

This is not what we see in the US or anywhere else just now.

We've only had one president who really didn't want to be president and that is one of the main things that made him so great. Since Washington, every president has coveted the office and the power that goes with it. Even Jefferson was a very different person while in office. We have the best system on the planet but it has 2 major flaws. As great as the founding fathers were, they were still men so there are going to be problems. Second the system is run by men, and for the most part men that are nowhere near the caliber of men who founded the country. That doesn't mean we should give up or accept the mediocrity that politicians have brought and continue to bring to our fine country.
