Well, So I am Hating Obama…

Do I hate Obama because he is a wimp, a liar or an arrogant piece

Of plywood in a closet?

 

Sharpton accuses me of being racist.

I love blacks.

Not Sharpton.

He is a victim of his own bigoted ambitions.

Not Obama.

He is his nouveau riche white half,

An embarrassment to old money and old class.

 

Obama has made failure seem like a success.

How has he failed us?

Let me count the ways—

The economy, Obamacare, Isis, Ebola, The Veteran’s Administration,

The IRS, divisiveness, Professor Gates,

Ferguson,

Treyvon Martin,

Same sex marriage

And on and on and whatever he will add to his turning American

Exceptionalism into a narcissist’s emotional stock market crash.

 

Obama was elected to be a rock star.

The star has traveled a distance into its own arrogant orbit

 

And his rock and roll just rolls into the absence of principle

And the love of the failure of political correctness and the stubbornness

 

Of confusing pragmatism with lock jaw.
