Comparing the Obama administration to terrorists...
The Political Commentator ^ | January 12, 2013 | Michael Haltman

While at the same time comparing the Republicans to Opie!

When I say that a comparison can be made between the Obama administration and Islamic extremists and terrorists let me be perfectly clear!

In no way am I saying this relative to anything having to do with the Obama administration vis a vis the killing of innocent human beings!

I do however say it in the context of the ability to listen to words, spoken or written, and then be faced with the prospect of having to successfully decipher the true meaning behind those words.

Put another way, it's the exercise of listening to Barack Obama or a proxy of the Obama administration and then trying to tie what you heard to some vestige of the intended reality of what it is that the administrations actually plans to try and do.

For the Republicans, the leadership has obviously been extremely unsuccessful at trying to develop a political strategy based on what it is that they thought they heard or on what it is that believed has been meant.

And sadly it's this strategy, along with believing that they are negotiating from a position of weakness, that has placed all non-Obamabot Americans behind the proverbial eight-ball.

Further explanation!

Reading back over what I just wrote I would imagine that some readers might be as confused as I am. Therefore I will try to simplify what it is that I am trying to say using the analogy of negotiating with terrorists.

If you choose to believe the words over the deeds and actions you will put yourself in mortal danger. These two examples of the Obama administrations handling of national security will show how when you allow yourself to be lulled to sleep by promises and assurances that you are playing right into the enemies hands.

Think about the following phrase for a second: Iranian nuclear program and mental masturbation!

Now think about these two definitions:

1) Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result!

2) Mental Masturbation: The act of engaging in useless yet intellectually stimulating conversation, usually as an excuse to avoid taking constructive action.

For those of you that have lost track of where you think I am going with all of this, here is the payoff.

Throughout the first four years of the Obama administration, and likely for the next four years as well, the United States has basically been led around by the nose by some extremely dangerous people and groups around the world.

For the benefit of this discussion, however, let's focus on the Middle East.


Iran has jerked the worlds chain, the Obama administration's included, saying one thing and then doing the other until we have now reached the point where that country has likely reached its desired endgame of possessing a nuclear capability along with a strong desire to use it.

This was accomplished while that country assured a world that was happy to play along that nuclear weapons was not one of its desires.

Why has the world been so complacent? Because until disaster is imminent the world has no leaders with the courage of their convictions who are willing to take the lead and stop armageddon before it even has a possibility of becoming a reality.

In many situations this methodology could be gotten away with but if Iran truly possesses nuclear weapons, this will likely not be one of those times.

Therefore the end result is that we chose to believe Iran's words although that country's prior actions told us the real truth.


In Egypt Barack Obama listened to the words of the Arab Spring and either chose to believe them or said that he believed them to earn political points back home. At the time myself, along with smarter minds, questioned how a truly democratic outcome could have been expected.

Fast forward and we have Mohammed Morsi "winning" the democratic election while promising that his Muslim Brotherhood ties would not mean an Islamist takeover of Egypt along with everything such a result would mean to the Middle East.

Again Barack Obama believed these words or perhaps knew the truth and chose to go along anyway. The world now faces the outcome of an Islamic theocracy in Egypt which now has billions more of U.S. money and sophisticated U.S. fighters.

Bottom-line? In our society the problem is that we cannot believe people exist with the capacity for the type of evil that does, where humans have no value and where ones own family members would willingly be sacrificed for the good of the movement.

These are foreign ideas although we have been shown time and time again that it is reality.

What Democrats say has nothing to do with what they mean!

Now let's compare what the Obama administration says to what it is that they actually mean using only the example of protecting the middle class.

Despite the campaigning, the promises and the assurances that the middle class would be protected in the Obama economy, we have seen in fact that this is anything but the truth.

Just ask the people who have been laid off due to the constraints of Obamacare or who opened their paychecks in January, 2013 and saw a nice bite taken out of their bottom-line.

The time has come for the Republican Party to finally deal with the Obama administration on their own terms rather than on Obama's terms. That methodology has been, and will continue to be, a loser.

The President has as his agenda the complete makeover of the United States where sacrifice will be shared, success is vilified and no one citizen (other than the politicians) should be better off than his neighbor.

If this sounds like socialism well, it is. And no matter what is said or how it is tried to be explained away, it's socialism.

Republicans by now understand that he delivers his message in a way that is received and believed and that they better quickly figure out how to do the same.

The typical GOP retreads blathering in front of a camera with frowns on their faces are not going to cut it. Not even close!

Find someone who can clearly map out the issues and then find someone who actually registers on the likability meter and put that person out front.

Understand that the media will do everything in its power to destroy you and that the Democrats will do whatever it takes to get the results that they want.

And finally please, understand that what they say has absolutely nothing to do with what they mean and act accordingly.

The list is long on that issue.
