Piercing Questions: Who is Barack Obama?

Written by R.G. Yoho on June 30, 2014

Please answer me a question.

What is there to truly admire about Barack Hussein Obama?

Some of you will immediately say that he is a good family man.

Oh, really?

Then perhaps you can explain to me, for a person who’s supposedly such a great family man, why do Barack and Michelle Obama rarely ever leave for vacation on the same flight? And you should also explain why the two of them rarely ever return on the same flight as well.

That is truly strange behavior for a couple of people who we’ve been led to believe are such a close-knit family.

Why does his wife scowl and looked supremely disinterested at events that honor our flag and our Armed Forces personnel? And what is it that this obviously-disgruntled woman is whispering to her husband about such activities that causes him to solemnly nod his head in agreement?

I am certainly not ashamed to say that I have still seen no credible proof that Obama was actually born in America. But that aside, you most certainly can’t argue with the fact that the president was never raised in America.

Unlike your childhoods, Obama definitely wasn’t immersed in our culture, a condition that is absolutely critical to understanding our nation’s heritage and properly representing our people.

Largely raised in a Muslim land and culture, Obama didn’t grow up with yearly Fourth of July celebrations and observations of Christmas. He didn’t play sandlot baseball games with the other neighborhood kids. He didn’t get together with the other boys for a game of two-hand-touch football.

If you are honest enough with yourself to really think about it, Barack Obama has almost nothing in common with the average American citizen.

Obama’s dad was a Communist; his mother was a Communist. His grandparents were Communists. His mentors were Communists. His best friends from his college years were home-grown terrorists, people who participated in bombings of the New York Police, the United States Capitol, and the Pentagon.

Does that sound like any American that you would actually know and admire?

Obama even married a woman who proudly claimed she was NEVER proud of her country until after her husband was elected president.

Whenever the law prevents him from doing something he wants to do, Obama whines like a little girl about the restraints placed upon his presidency by our Founding Documents. And in these moments, Obama always becomes belligerent, ill-mannered, and petulant.

Does that sound like a man who is truly proud of his country?

Other than perhaps Jimmy Carter, what other president have we had in recent memory that routinely traveled around the world apologizing for the unique and exceptional nation he leads?

I challenge you to go out on YouTube and watch some videos of the president.

Obama can’t put two intelligible words together without the aid of a teleprompter. He can’t throw a baseball. This man, who often talks about “shovel-ready jobs,” barely even knows which end of the shovel you actually dig with. You might actually break into laughter when you see your president grimacing and straining while lifting a tiny pair of 2.5-pound dumbbells.

What is there about this man that you can truly admire or go to for inspiration?

Unlike many of you, who routinely have to struggle and labor to get ahead, Obama‘s never worked a job outside of government. He’s never, at any point in his life, earned a living by the sweat of his brow.

What does he instinctively know about American life?

Everything the man ever told us about Obamacare has turned out to be a lie. Moreover, when he made those promises to the American people, Obama deliberately knew he was lying to us when he said them.

The economy is in shambles. More Americans are losing their jobs. Energy prices are continuing to skyrocket. And the country is much less secure than it has been in any period since 9/11.

But despite these problems, Obama still finds the time to take lavish vacations to Hawaii, Africa, and Martha’s Vineyard. And he does these things on your hard-earned taxpayer dollars.

President Obama is responsible for giving guns and planes to our enemies. He has released dangerous terrorists from confinement in order that they once again may prey upon us. He has used the agencies of government to punish his political opponents.

This column could go on and on, but what has Obama really done that should really earn your praise and admiration?

And is this the kind of man you’d be happy to have your kids emulate?
