Skip to comments.Obama to Tennessee–Tough Luck Cracker Honky Whitey
Posted on 05/07/2010 5:33:54 PM PDT by big black dog
Between the stock market collapsing with help from a clerical error, the New York terror plot, Greece going bankrupt, leftist protesters from Greece to America going bonkers, and of course JaMarcus Russell being released by the Oakland Raiders (ok, so good news does come in small doses), and the oil disaster that is soooo last week, it seems that much of the country has ignored the tragedy of the flooding in Tennessee.
30 people died in the torrential rainstorm, and Kentucky got belted hard as well.
At least President Obama issued moving emotional remarks while touring the ravaged area.
Oh wait never mind.
Barack Obama had a simple message to the people of Tennessee. In the new post-partisan, post-racial Obamaworld, he offered his sentiments.
Tough luck, cracker honky whitey.
After all, why would Mr. Obama spend one minute helping Tennessee? Why would he want to help people who vote Republican (supporting George W. Bush over Al Gore, who claimed to be from there), watch football, love NASCAR, believe in a Christian God, and supported the South in the Civil War?
Why would he care if the Grande Old Opry shuts down? Does anybody think he loses an ounce of sleep over suffering country musicians? After all, country music is for white rednecks.
If enough people in Tennessee die, there will be fewer Republicans alive.
Mr. Obama obviously does not care about white people, and deliberately withheld any government aid to maximize the suffering.
This is where liberals start screeching their famous liberal screech.
They will start mouthing nonsense about how being president is a hard job. The president cannot be in a million places at once. While immediately going to Tennessee might be good symbolic policy, it might not be smart from a logistical standpoint.
They will say that I have every right to offer criticism that I can back up, but wild speculation about what is in his heart is totally unfair. He could very well be taking steps to minimize the pain, and we owe him the benefit of the doubt.
They would be right.
Now if only the left would stop being such a bunch of insufferable hypocrites.
How many times did we hear that George W. Bush didnt care about black people? That he deliberately took no action during Hurricane Katrina so that black suffering would be exacerbated?
It was garbage. The only mistake George W. Bush made during that time was being far too gracious to critics not fit to lick his Texas boots.
He never got an ounce of credit for quick action that led to 30,000 people, many of them black, being airlifted to safety.
He faced a natural disaster, was in constant contact with people on the ground, and did his best.
The situation in Katrina was unprecedented. Unprecedented means exactly that.
It wasnt his fault that liberal politicians screwed up Louisiana to begin with. Only a leftist shill could praise Ray Nagin and Kathleen Blanco. They did more damage than Michael Brown at FEMA ever could.
When Bush told Brownie that he was doing a heckuva job, that was to boost morale. What was he supposed to do, berate the guy on national television? That would have helped the rescue efforts, if one calls walking off the job a rescue.
President Bush was beaten like a rented mule by people who hated his guts for no other reason than that is who they are and how they behave.
Barack Obama has a tough job. He is doing the best he can. He is getting some things right and too many things wrong.
He should be criticized for his missteps, and stop being so petulant with people who refuse to see him as perfect. He needs to drop the arrogance and develop humility.
Yet I will not question his heart. I have never met the man, or broken bread with him. He may very well care about the people of Tennessee.
I know George W. Bush cared about the suffering in New Orleans. He was a devout religion who obeyed Christian teachings. Those teachings demanded that he care about the most vulnerable among us. Those who attack him for being guided by Christianity cannot pick and choose which aspects of the religion he obeyed. Most Christians I know give more to charity and do more to help combat suffering than the average person.
George W. Bush was never given the benefit of the doubt by the left never.
If the left wants Barack Obama to be given the benefit of the doubt, they need to stop the abuse of conservatives.
I will do my part. George W. Bush will be vindicated.
Being the president is hard work. He did his best, and he did so with honor, grace, class, humility, dignity, and decency.
I know some people in Tennessee who would welcome the warmth that he and Laura Bush had for people.
There is little perceived warmth with his successor Dr. Spock. He is as cold as the rain that tormented Tennessee.
Those who suggest I be fair may wish to look in the mirror.
Mr. Obama needs to put his head down and do his job. If he does the right thing, the truth will get out.
If he doesnt, that will get out as well, no matter how many MSNBC anchors praise their god.
Tennessee needs help. Get to work Mr. Obama. You may not gain electoral votes, but you might gain something more important.
He hates Whitey
Sorry, forgot the *h* ...
Obama doesn’t care about white people.
They didn’t vote for him and he is not running again anyway so he can just focus on non-American non-white issues the final 3 years.
Y’all come back now, ya hear ???
How many people died during Katrina’s hit, d’ya know or anyone else know? Thirty people dying in that flood is pretty horrific. I saw video of it and it was just immense in scope and the damage it has done is so sad for so many.
He can’t ‘politicize’ the Nashville floods. Not enough ‘minorities’. The Country Music City is only good for producing musicians to entertain ‘Dear Leader’ on his demographic ‘Music Nights’ @ the WH.
Socialist ( "We hope you have earned enough money," redistribute wealth) Nationalist Socialist. Thats Fascist folks! Political correctness rule instead of law.
He is NOT my president and never will be.
If he is yours, then you would vote for Mussolini, Hitler and any demogogue.
Now lets vote them all out!
While the media worked OT making sure Obama didn’t get Katrina’d over the oil spill, they (media and zero) ignored TN.
And prophetically, this may be his real Katrina. People are outraged.
recall he didn’t give a rats @ss about kentucky when they had that ice storm. tn or ky? too may typical, bitter, clingers down there.
I bet he gave federal aid to non-Whites, like illegal Mexicans and Negroes, who were harmed by the floods while denying it to Whites.
He didn’t care about the tornado damage and deaths either.
I think nobama would say “Shut up you white fools. We won. Keep paying taxes so my stash can grow. My supporters are running out of week and cheap booze in the urban areas.”
The Media didn't have to work OT to prevent Obama from "getting Katrina'd" as all they had to do was ignore certain aspects of the oil spill. OTOH, the Media DID work overtime tarring GWB over Katrina. Pushing every angle they could to demonstrate incompetence, negligence or indifference -- and a lot of it was just flat-out made up. Joseph Goebbels would be proud.
