Letter: Is Obama our president or dictator?


The 2014 State of the Union Address was "eloquently spoken" as per usual for President Obama as he is exceptionally qualified when it comes to a prepared speech set up on his series of teleprompters screens, which are strategically positioned so it appears to the cameras and those in attendance as though the President is looking at the audience.

There is nothing wrong with projecting yourself in the best light possible; but when one makes claims that are at best distortions of the truth and lauding credit for things that have come about in spite of his intentional attempts to destroy them (i.e.; domestic energy production and his claim of preserving the middle class, when all of his policies and actions are geared to make the middle class pay for everything for themselves, the super rich and everyone else); then openly claims authority over legislative matters never given to any president in this Nation.

Instead his intended method is, that he can arbitrarily authorize and make national laws not by logical persuasion as is outlined in the Constitution he is sworn to protect and adhere to; but, by legislative fiat, wherein he simply dons his imaginary monarch headdress and signs whatever he has decided into law by executive order; claiming he has the authority to declare the House and Senate recessed; whenever he decides he wants them recessed.

We have been duped into accepting one of the most narcissistic and overbearing individuals known as our President and now he is bypassing the US Constitution, which he is sworn to uphold; all the while he is knee deep in controversy ie; Benghazi, NSA, IRS, gun running, special interest groups, preferential treatment and other corruption involving the Justice Department, HHS, and executive appointments.

Where are the Republicans? Cowering down under their desks or practicing their mantra of acceptability because they fear being subjected to the fiery wrath of the dictator president and the propaganda prognosticators so-called news media lapdogs; that vilify every move any conservatives make.

When during the State of the Union Speech, President Obama said very plainly that he would circumvent the Constitution, and lawmakers in the gallery cheered exuberantly, it indicates that a massive amount of these elected officials either do not understand the Constitution or they are in bed with those that are trying to destroy it and the United States of America.

Mary Jane, the next time your caregiver makes her rounds you should really consider swallowing the pills. I have never read such backwards nonsensical rants in my life. No one but the most numb minded far left liberal can deny that many of our freedoms have slowly eroded since 9/11. What part of recognizing that is paranoid? You have foregone the hat and must live in a tinfoil house.

In the you can't make this up Department:

8 Feb 2014
The NAACP held a peaceful march to protest the requirement of voter ID laws at the "Moral March on Raleigh."

In a flyer sent out entitled “Important Do’s and Don’ts for Marchers,” some very responsible marching elements were listed for people's safety.

One of the Do's was:
“DO bring photo identification (driver's license, passport or other valid photo ID) with you and keep it on your persons at all times.”
So.... bring a photo ID to an anti-photo ID protest.
Only a liberal could come up with this

How were poor disadvantaged folks before obama's rule?
Hungry and cold.
How are poor disadvantaged folks under obama's rule?
Hungry and cold and with a feeling of deep gratitude

Just a thought for the rabid, t/p, tin-foil hat wearing crowd. The hat should sit loosely about the head, just tight enough to keep out the real news. Save the duct tape for sealing the bunker door!

Dale"s thesis amounts to:

All elected representatives are cooperating to destroy America.

Meanwhile, the rich get richer....

Glorious Comrades!
Toilers of the soil!!
Carriers of the torch of HOPE and CHANGE!!!
Forward to Utopia!!
Comrade Party Chairman President Barrackovitch Obamski comforts worker at the end of his natural post-natal productive life.
Under the glorious obamacare program, those at the end of their natural post-natal useful lives make way for next group of vibrant and energetic workers!

Comrade Party Chairman President Barrackovitch Obamski ministered to Comrade Citizen Blobski.
Mr. Blobski was injured
- by a cart made by a capitalist bourgeois profit-mongering Evil Korporation!! -
when Comrade Citizen Blobski fell, breaking his leg, pushing the evil cart with healthy organic cabbage into the kitchen of the Democrat Party Workers Nutrition Pantry
which supplies vital, nutritious and gluten free organic cabbage soup to unemployed victims of Evil Korporations!!
Comrade Citizen Blobski is nearing the ripe old age of 56!
Comrade Party Chairman President Barrackovitch Obamski has taken wise and bold action to remove precious resources necessary for treating the infection caused by the non-mended fracture of Comrade Citizen Blobski's leg.
Comrade Party Chairman President Barrackovitch Obamski said the precious resources would be better spent providing ribbed condoms to Chairwoman of Rubbers - Comrade Fluke, so they can be passed out to students at Georgetown University.

Greed isn't someone wanting to keep more of what they earn it's people demanding a greater share of money that someone else has earned.

Dale says, "Burn the witches!"

The crown responds, "What do we burn them with?"

Dale says, "More witches!"

Good Lord, It must take great effort to get this convoluted. Dale is starting to make Glenn Beck look like Ted Kennedy!

Dale...Governor Brewer used a teleprompter for her State of the State address. I don't remember reading your letter complaining about that.
