Fw: Ben Stein on Obama

We've Figured Him Out

By Ben Stein on 7.24.09 @ 9:45AM

Why is President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get his socialized medicine bill passed?
Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths:
The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.
They ignored his anti-white writings in his books. They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.
They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student. They ignored his ultra-left record as a "community organizer," Illinois state legislator, and Senator.
The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar.
Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth. Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist, not a fan of this country, way, way too cozy with the terrorist leaders in the Middle East , way beyond naïveté, all the way into active destruction of our interests and our allies and our future.
The American people have already awakened to the truth that the stimulus bill -- a great idea in theory -- was really an immense bribe to Democrat interest groups, and in no way an effort to help all Americans.
Now, Americans are waking up to the truth that ObamaCare basically means that every time you are sick or injured, you will have a clerk from the Department of Motor Vehicles telling your doctor what he can and cannot do.
The American people already know that Mr. Obama's plan to lower health costs while expanding coverage and bureaucracy is a myth, a promise of something that never was and never will be -- a bureaucracy lowering costs in a free society. Either the costs go up or the free society goes away.
These are perilous times. Mrs. Hillary Clinton, our Secretary of State, has given Iran the go-ahead to have nuclear weapons, an unqualified betrayal of the nation. Now, we face a devastating loss of freedom at home in health care. It will be joined by controls on our lives to "protect us" from global warming, itself largely a fraud if believed to be caused by man.
Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and will stop him if he delays at all in taking away our freedoms.
There is his urgency and our opportunity. Once freedom is lost, America is lost. Wake up, beloved America .

Ben Stein is a liar. And a poor one, at that.

I think that Ben Stein suffers from the same problem as Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, and our old pal Rush Limbaugh. He craves attention. Even negative attention is better than none.

I liked him in Ferris Bueller, though. He was kinda funny until he showed his real side.

Agree w/gruaud: wish Ben Stine would go back to making movies and STFU.

So tired of this stupid incendiary rhetoric which is not based on anything factual.

These people are like toddlers throwing temper tantruns bc they didn't get "their way." Bleah.

Wish they'd put all of this energy into something useful, but that's a real pipe dream.

Got as far as "anti-white writing", stopped reading. Ben Stein is Ben Stein, with all that entails. Speaking of Ferris Bueller, though, I'm sure I read (on the internet, so it must be true!) that Mr. Stein wants "Anybody? Bueller?" - or whatever his famous line was - written on his gravestone. If this is the case, he obviously realises somewhere in his subconscious that it'd be much better to be remembered for that than for being a barking mad creationist who uses phrases like "anti-white writing".

Obama is a total zero as a student and scholar? Is he serious?

Obama was editor of the Harvard Law Review. That means that he outperformed hundreds of his ultra smart Harvard Law classmates in order to win the position. He was also a professor of law at the U of Chicago, one of the top Academic institutions in the nation.

Of course its probably not worth getting upset about, since the entirety of this piece is lies, distortions, and hate for the President.

No facts + total lies = what the GOP is all about anymore.

NO facts, ever, under any circumstances.

Just lie & lie & lie, and then pat yourselves on the back for being such excellent Christians (apologies to those of faith who don't behave this way; I know you're out there, too).

It is disgusting & appalling.

"They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists...."

Hehheh, John McCain is an ultra-leftist."

This can't actually be from Ben Stein. He may be a republican, but he has enough nuerons to know that HRC didn't say it was ok for Iran to have nukes. Tards.

I found the column on American Spectator. It's Stein, alright. Snopes confirmed.

Hibryd said...

Damn, what happened to this guy? Didn't he build an entire game show around how smart he supposedly was?

Now he's propping up idiotic Intelligent Design movies and writing columns bereft of facts and filled with so-out-there-they're-not-even-wrong talking points.

CMcD said...

So here's Stein, a seemingly intelligent person, basically flirting with teabaggers by echoing their idiotic talking points.

He must be looking for a gig on Fox Noise.

Maybe Stein is broke and is willing to be a WHORE for money? Clearly the Republicants are the most in bed w/the wealthy, so who ya gonna go prostitute yourself to? The ones w/the $$$.
