Obama, Don’t Point!



I was told by my mother when I was a little boy that it was not polite to point your finger at someone. 

When I first saw Obama I noticed that he was always pointing his finger in the air as if he felt that he ruled or controlled space.  His finger was a dare. It was a gun.

It was a magician of false power, a wand or a king’s scepter. It always made me feel that despite his smooth, teleprompter speeches that he was rude.

He was pointing at our inferiority to him.  He was directing us to the bottom of his barrel, designating us as morons who voted for a quasi-communist leader and ruined a few hundred years of America’s inductive, genetic, pragmatic growth.

I think he should reverse his finger and point it at himself.  He should announce with his digit who is ruining the country.

He should take the blame where the blame belongs. Perhaps like the Saudi Arabians who chop off children’s hands for stealing he should chop off his own arrogant finger for stealing the exceptionalism from what was a magnificent country before he was stupidly elected.

Obama, you don’t exist.  You are the fantasy of a population who can’t tell their hand from their fingers.

Your voters are cuticles, hard little nails awaiting for deceptive polish.

You are failing because you were elected by failures. You and your voters are a gestalt of self-destruction.
