Crazy Obama Quotes

Crazy Quotes

“I cannot swallow whole the view of Lincoln as the Great Emancipator.”

“I fear that reparations would be an excuse for some to say, ‘We’ve paid our debt’ and to avoid the much harder work.”

“It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

So we have a racist President who can’t attribute something great in African American history to a white man. We have a President who feels African American’s deserve more than just reparations for injustices suffered by their great, great, great, great, great grandparents. We have a President who feels those who cling to their rights to religion and arms are bitter. Are you as confident as I am in the direction our country is taking?

    Wow, those are some creative interpretations of Obama’s intent. Consider:
    1. It is generally agreed that Lincoln was more invested in saving the union than freeing slaves. Also there’s nothing in the quote that implies that Lincoln’s race has anything to do with Obama’s opinion.
    2. The second quote is his reason for not believing in reparations – not his believing African-Americans are owed “more than just” reparations.
    3. The third quote is poorly worded and offensive, I agree. But the sentiment is not. There are angry, bitter people who feel that America is not what it once was, is not offering them the opportunities they want. It’s not right to say “they” necessarily, but it would seem that the Tea Party is an expression of anger (and presumably some of the angry people are also bitter.)

    My take,

    I agree with Thomas on the first two, but not the second.
