Hello America. Please have a seat; We have some very disparaging news for you. Compliments of the actions of the Republican Party, we have been led to a very definite conclusion. America, President Barack Obama is a black man, and he’s living in the White House! Please take a moment, or two to absorb all this!
At first, we were blind of this fact. We were all captivated by his speeches and the calm, cool manner in which he conducted his campaign for the office of the president. But we never once looked at the obvious, literally staring us in the face each time the then senator Barack Obama came onto our big screen HD tv’s. Yeah, he seemed a bit dark, but that could have been because of these new tanning machines. Look at John Boehner, he’s practically a black man himself!
Looking back now, there were way too many minorities at his inauguration. That should have been a dead giveaway, but again that was overlooked for some strange reason, I guess it was in part due to the euphoria felt over his call for change and returning to a government that was for the people and by the people. At that time, we didn’t know what that euphoria was, but we were excited. It felt like something historic was taking place, but no one bothered to look into it. We just joined the jubilation with all those minorities, knowing that eventually, the Republican Party will investigate the inauguration and this president, and they will tell us why we were all caught up in the excitement.
It didn’t take long America. After the swearing in of President Barack Obama, the rumors started up again. No, at the time no one came straight out to tell us that our new president was black, but the hint came when Rush Limbaugh – the Republican truth speaker – saw something the rest of us didn’t when he stated, “I want Barack Obama to fail!”
Now the statement by Rush was a little odd, we agree. Before the new President unpacked his bags, the conservative radio pundit-turned-Republican-talking points-creator, was already wishing for him to fail! America, that should have been an eye-opener right there, and yet…
But now friends, we are no longer in the dark. Thanks to the Republican Party, we see the light!
At first, the hints were very subtle, a policy disagreement here – a no GOP vote there. We anticipated these disagreements and NO votes from the opposition party, but eventually, we all expected the two sides to come together and work for you, the American people.
But as time went on, we began to see a pattern. Policy after policy, the Republican Party continued moving away from making any decisions that would give a win to President Obama. We watched in astonishment as legislations originally created by Republicans, were shunned by the same party, simply because President Obama adopted them. And here we are, almost at the half way point of President Obama’s first term, and we have yet to see the Republicans agree with Democrats in a bipartisan manner to move America forward.
The hints became even less subtle. Thinking that Americans were not seeing the real Black Obama, Republicans stepped it up a few notches.
Why else would Mitch McConnell join the Rush Limbaugh talking point and wish for the President to fail. Why would he – at a time when our economy is in the pits – state that, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”
Why would John Boehner, the new Republican House Majority Leader say that the Republicans are “going to do everything, and I mean everything, we can do to kill it, stop it, slow it down, whatever we can,” referring to the historical bill Obama as President was victorious in signing into law – a bill that previous presidents tried and failed to pass – The Health Care Reform Bill.
And it wasn’t only the Republicans in Congress, conservative radio and television commentators went on daily and nightly rampages to bring to light the fact, that there was something different about our new President. Yes, this too is nothing new. The opposition’s pundits will ‘pundicize,’ but the level of lies and misinformation these commentators engaged in, was of an intensity that no one has ever seen before.
Once, an accusation was even made that the president was being racist against white people. This was almost as direct as Glenn Beck could have been in pulling out the race card, but it still didn’t register. Americans still did not come to the conclusion that a black man was living in the White House.
But we, being the observers that we are, stood back and examined the whole situation. Things began coming together, and were making sense. The huge turnout of minorities for his inauguration, the historic feel of the moment, and the unified opposition from the Congressional Republicans towards anything and everything Barack Obama does told the whole truth!
And that truth is simple: the Republican leaders of Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and Eric Cantor cannot accept the fact that a black President lives in the White House. They cannot accept the fact that a black president has accomplished what no other President could accomplish – comprehensive Health Care for all Americans.
And the nerve of this black President to take on the Republican mantra of Tax Cuts. He offered tax cuts to 95 percent of America’s middle class, and now he wants to make these cuts permanent.
They know the condition of the economy is terrible, so in their effort to make sure this particular president failed, these Republican leaders are consciously putting Americans in a more dire situation by opposing proven methods to stimulate economic growth. They believe that President Obama must not achieve anything more while in office. It is their belief that President Obama must not get credit for anything positive; after all, he is black and in their minds – probably instilled in them from childhood – blacks cannot amount to anything positive.
These Republican leaders believe that if President Obama succeeds in his endeavors, then this might encourage more black Americans to consider running for the presidential office in the future. That atrocity must be stopped, regardless of the benefits President Obama’s policies will have on the American people.
America, we have figured it out and now you know too. Thanks to the Republican Party, we now know that there’s a black President in the White House.
