Subject: Mychal Massie' Assessment of Obama

This guy is so good – he uses words better than many columnists I read – and has the courage to speak out despite the race thing. He certainly nails it on the lies and trashy behavior.

Nero in the White House
Posted: August 08, 2011 5:20 pm Eastern © 2011 
Three significant historical events have been eclipsed by Obama: 1) Jimmy Carter will no longer be looked upon as the worst president in American history; 2) Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton will no longer be recognized as the greatest liars in presidential history; 3) Clinton's stain on Monica's dress, and what that did to the White House in general and the office of the president specifically, will forever pale in comparison to the stain and stench of Obama. 

I need not spend much time on the failure of Obama as president. His tenure has been a failure on every measurable level. So much so, in fact, that some of the staunchest, most respected liberal Democrats and Democratic supporters have not only openly criticized him – some even more harshly than this essayist – but they have called for him to step down.

Richard Nixon's words "I am not a crook," punctuated with his involvement in Watergate, and Bill Clinton's finger-wagging as he told one of the most pathetic lies in presidential history, in the aftermath of Obama, will be viewed as mere prevarications. 

Mr. Nixon and Clinton lied to save their backsides. Although, I would argue there are no plausible explanations for doing what they did, I could entertain arguments pursuant to understanding their rationales for lying. But in the case of Obama, he lies because he is a liar. He doesn't only lie to cover his misdeeds – he lies to get his way. He lies to belittle others and to make himself look presentable at their expense. He lies about his faith, his associations, his mother, his father and his wife. He lies and bullies to keep his background secret. His lying is congenital and compounded by socio-psychological factors of his life. 

Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, 
contumacious arrogance isunequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood. 

As the stock markets were crashing, taking with them the remaining life saving of untold tens of thousands, Obama was hosting his own birthday celebration, which was an event of Epicurean splendidness.The shamelessness of the event was that it was not a state dinner to welcome foreign dignitaries, nor was it to honor an American accomplishment – it was to honor the Pharaoh, Barack Hussein Obama. The event's sole purpose was for the Pharaoh to have his loyal subjects swill wine, indulge in gluttony and behavior unfit to take place on the property of taxpayers, as they suffer. It was of a magnitude comparable to that of Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski's $2 million birthday extravaganza for its pure lack of respect for the people. 

Permit me to digress momentarily. The U.S. Capitol and the White House were built with the intent of bringing awe and respect toAmerica and her people. They were also built with the intent of being the greatest of equalizers. I can tell you, having personally been to both, there is a moment of awe and humility associated with being in the presence of the history of those buildings. They are to be honored and inscribed into our national psyche, not treated as a Saturday night house party at Chicago's Cabrini-Green. 

The people of America own that home Obama and his wife continue to debase with their pan-ghetto behavior. It is clear that Obama and family view themselves as royalty, but they're not. They are employees of "we the people," who are suffering because of his failed policies. What message does this behavior send to those who today are suffering as never before? 

What message does it send to 
all Americans who are struggling? Has anyone stopped to think what the stock market downturn forebodes for those 80 million baby boomers who will be retiring in the next period of years? Is there a snowball's chance in the Sahara that every news program on the air would applaud this behavior if it were George W. Bush? To that point, do you remember the media thrashing Bush took for having a barbecue at the White House? Like Nero – who was only slightly less debaucherous than Caligula – with wine on his lips Obama treated "we the people" the way Caligula treated those over whom he lorded. 

Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America's people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.

Too bad he doesn't use facts.

1) Jimmy Carter will no longer be looked upon as the worst president in American history

He isn't now, except by people with no understanding of American History.

2) Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton will no longer be recognized as the greatest liars in presidential history

Did you finally realize that W existed and served as President?

So much so, in fact, that some of the staunchest, most respected liberal Democrats and Democratic supporters have not only openly criticized him – some even more harshly than this essayist – but they have called for him to step down.

Yes, because he's been too conservative in his policies. Again, no understanding of history. Find me an actual, real life President who wasn't criticized by some member of his own base.

And it just gets worse from there. Such a sad ball of hateful lies, and even sadder that some people apparently think highly of this writer and this piece.

Oh, I get it. We should believe this birther because he's black. In other words, you can feel better about your racism; even black people think Barrack Hussein Osama isn't who he says he is.

Mychal Massie spends many a word calling President Obama a liar --a "congenital" liar. Yet in this entire rant, there is no example of any lie, or series of lies. No research on anything just name-calling and hyperbole. There are other right-wing columnists who can name-call at this level-Michelle Malkin is one--but at least Malkin throws in some obscure news item to salvage what is otherwise a completely brain-dead hate-rant.

They misspelled "Negro." It's a negro in the white house, wingers. Not Nero. Otherwise he'd have you all chained to a bench rowing him around the tidal basin.

I remember Massie -- he likes to write with a thesaurus in his lap so he'll seem smarter than he really is.

Contumacious, eh, Mychal? I think your whole column described you better than it did Obama.

Despite "using words well," it's amazing how little substance there is in this rant. Obama is a liar why...? Throwing a birthday party is bad why...? Clinton was the most shameful President why...? What is Obama doing that Bush never did...?

The author is not interested in backing up any of these assertions.

As the stock markets were crashing,[...] Obama was hosting his own birthday celebration

Wait, his birthday is in August. Is this e-mail blaming him for something he did before becoming President? Or a year later? And isn't a rich guy spending a lot of money that vaunted "trickle-down economics" Saint Reagan loved so much?

So, basically, whatever Obama is doing is worse than Nero having tied up Christians set on fire in his garden and reading by the light they gave off.

That's fair.
