“Lynch mob mentality” comes to mind here…(read below).
The typical right-winger has incredible double standards when it comes to Presidents. Dubyah spent almost as much time at his ranch in Texas as he did in DC, and he loved to fish. He flew Air Force One around like it was his personal mode of transportation — because it was. Conservatives don’t seem to have a problem with that and truthfully, neither should liberals. No matter where a sitting president is, he is working.
Conservatives expect…more…from President Obama for some reason. Their vision of what his day should be like differs from previous presidents, who were allowed to fish, play golf, or in the case of their hero Saint Ronny, take six naps a day without scrutiny. Not Obama. He should be waking up at the crack of dawn to walk the streets of DC, finding homeless vets to shake hands with and cracking down on crime.
By the time he’s briefed at 8 AM, the President should have already thwarted whatever plans ISIS had for the day, called Putin to congratulate him for being so magnificent, and sent Netanyahu a basket of mini muffins and an apology for allowing Iran to become the undisputed champion of all world superpowers.
Most importantly — and this can’t be stressed enough — the President can NEVER have any contact whatsoever with another black person. It’s racist. He can’t comment on anything that has to do with black people. It’s racist. If a black man is murdered in cold blood on camera and the President has an opinion, he’s stirring up racial tensions and setting “his people” back 150 years.
This became the issue when the President and First Lady took a few minutes to sing happy birthday to Usher, who was at the White House filming a musical special for PBS in the East Room. If you look around at the numerous articles about the event, you’ll see that what was actually 38 seconds and a cupcake has been escalated to a dignitary event honoring Usher for being black, costing the taxpayers millions.
Millions. That’s one expensive cupcake.
Here are some of the pleasantries the black man living in the White House has grown used to. First there’s the racism:
Then there’s the racism thinly veiled by concern for social injustice:
Then there’s the racism cleverly hidden by concerns for our economy…because cupcake:
And then there are just plain stupid people:
These are but a drop in the bucket of the hate spewed over this ever-important issue. The President walked through the foyer of his home, gave a man a cupcake and sang happy birthday. Clearly he should be impeached.
