Not my president, 11 of 50: 104 golf rounds, 1700 casualties

The office requires that the president play many roles, wear many hats. He must be accessible to the public and to members of Congress; he must conduct affairs with foreign governments and foreign dignitaries; he may need to make public appearances and keep up certain traditions.

Wartime, or any time when American soldiers are in battle and experiencing many casualties, constrains a president’s behavior somewhat. His commander-in-chief role becomes more prominent. Some of the light-hearted presidential perquisites must be put aside. This is not difficult to understand.

Not my president, 10 of 50: Muslim nation, not a Christian nation

Back in 2009, Obama made a couple of statements in a couple of venues that caused quite a stir. Democrats and media did their usual thing and spun it to their best advantage. But what Obama said was “we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation” in the first statement, and “if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world”.

Spin that all you want to, but that’s what he said. That’s what the context shows too.

The statements in more context…

Not my president, part 8 of 50: Not ready for the 3am call

In the “Not My President” derby, horse number 8 of 50 is called “Not Ready For That 3 AM Call.”

President of the United States is a tough job. Nobody questions that. It demands the utmost even of a tough, capable, intelligent, and experienced person. Having a lesser, unprepared person in that seat is a disaster for America. That is one reason the job interview process is *usually* so thorough, the vetting process *usually* so rigorous. It is required during a sudden national emergency that the president act swiftly and effectively to secure the nation, minimize further damage, and put the nation on a footing to recover or respond.

In the immediate aftermath of terrorist attack on the American consulate and our ambassador in Libya on 9-11-2012, none of these things happened.

Hillary Clinton,during the Democrat primary race in 2008, questioned whether Obama would be able to lead during a national crisis, in which the president was woken up by a “3 am call.” Obama’s early actions illustrate that Hillary was right to bring that up.

Not My President, part 7 of 50: Libyan Ambassador murdered, Neville Chamberlain heads to Vegas

Really, barack?

Does America really, truly have a White House occupier who can’t even get himself worked up over a day that involved 2 American embassies breached, flags taken down, desecrated and replaced with a black Islamic flag, and culminating in the murder of our Ambassador to Libya by a mob? He’s delivered a couple of tepid statements decrying “senseless violence” and now is proceeding to Las Vegas for previously scheduled campaign events. What kind of unserious, golf-playing parlor dilettante does that?

Let’s put it this way. Not my president.

Not My President, part 6 of 50: murdering live-born babies

It occurs to me that I had better hurry up with this series; this guy is not going to be the official “president” much longer, and at that point, people aren’t going to be interested in reading reasons 11-50 of why some loser non-president should not be our president.

A quick recap of the NMP rules (the series can be found at PetesWorld, a compendium of contributions by EPU and the anonymous Pete) ): The Bush-haters declared George W Bush NMP purely over political and ideological hatred (i.e., the crime of being a Republican), and over wet fantasies related to the fact that Gore was unable to successfully steal the 2000 election from him.

I hold the office of President to be infinitely more precious than that. I would only declare a person sitting in the office “not my president” only over him being manifestly unworthy of the office; specifically, over deliberate and systematic abuse of power, over corruption, over inflicting deliberate harm on sectors of the country, over hatred of the principles of justice and freedoms upon which this Republic was built, and over moral fiber so craven, so bereft of goodness as to be vile. Such a one is not only not my president, his name does not even merit capitalization.

Reason #6 relates to that matter of moral fiber. barack obama, in three consecutive sessions as a state senator in Illinois, ardently opposed a bill to protect the lives of live-born babies who survived abortion attempts. In the third session, in 2003, as chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee, he voted in favor of “neutrality clause” language that made the bill virtually identical to the federal bill, then led committee Democrats in voting down the bill in a 6-4 vote. This was a version of the bill that even NARAL dared not oppose. Yet barack did, actively and forcefully.

Not My President, Part 5 of 50: Non-Recess Recess Appointments

I’ve been chronicling 50 reasons why SCOAMF is not my president. I have listed 67 reasons on a notepad at home.

Let me make a distinction. It’s fair for people to oppose political opponents, even to despise them. I know the Commie Left can thrive wholly on a diet of pure hatred, with a side of venom. It’s fair to hate your opponent’s policies, and do your best within legal means to defeat them.. But it is not fair that based on your opposition, you declare the president “not your president.”

On the other hand, if a president acts lawlessly and illegitimately, or if in word and deed he demonstrates hatred for America, or acts intentionally to do great harm to America, then it’s on like Donkey Kong. He might be somebody else’s president. He is not mine. This jackass in the White House, this TOTUS-puppet vacation-smurfing, golf-ball-shanking skinny little freak, is not my president. Here is the fifth reason of 50.

Not My President, Part 4 of 50: It’s Always Somebody Else’s Fault

Big Burden for Big Shoulders

The President of the United States is, at every moment in time since June 6, 1944, the most important and powerful person in the world. He also bears the most responsibility. He is more than just the titular head of the most powerful nation the world has ever seen. In that office resides the personification of human liberty on earth, the beacon to hearts of all men who would be free, the guardian and protector of freedom and virtue.

Not my president, part 3 of 50: holding a gun to granny’s head

A President of the United States does not hold a gun to the heads of senior citizens in order to attempt to advance a political point. He does not threaten their welfare. He does not try to panic them by telling them that their Social Security checks may not be coming. He does not blame the other party for their intransigence, when he himself won’t budge off his demand that taxes be raised as part of an agreement to raise the debt ceiling.

Such behavior is grossly despicable. It is spiteful, cold, calculated, intensely selfish, self-serving, and far, far beneath the standard for presidential behavior. It is in fact indecent behavior for a person of any stripe at all. The fact that it is typical of Democrat behavior does not make it acceptable. It is also typical of evil tyrants who use their subjects for whatever purposes suit them. It was standard behevior for Mao Tse Tung, Adolf Hitler, Vladimir Lenin, Joe Stalin, Che Guevera, Fidel Castro, and Pol Pot; a gallery of mass murderers if there ever was one.

It is the 3rd of 50 reasons that barack is not my president.

He’s not bluffing. He will hold back SS checks

It gets worse. A lot worse. barack means it. He is an arrogant moron and has no idea how to cede the point when he has lost the debate. When August 2 rolls around, either the Republicans will have (stupidly) surrendered, or the government, according to tax-cheating Treasury Secretary, will have exhausted its $14.3 trillion credit card limit.

At that time, the government will not go into default. It will simply be out of borrowing authority. It will receive $210 billion in tax receipts, while having $360 billion in obligations. Social Security checks need not be held back.

But they will, and I know they will.

Deliberately inflicting fiscal pain is a signature Democrat move

Have you ever noticed how often that city governments, when forced to cut back, will first threaten to lay off cops, firemen, trashmen, and teachers? When their demands to turn the cash spigot are not met, they actually do it. Meanwhile, the employees in city hall are still on the job, mayors and councilmen still go on golfing trips on the city dime, and life otherwise goes merrily on.

So why do they lay off cops, firemen, trashmen, and teachers? Purely to punish the citizens for demanding fiscal responsibility.

Not My President, Part 2 of 50: Thou shalt hate your fellow American

When George W Bush was president, did you ever notice how he used to always tell Americans they should be angry at, say, the polluters? Big Pharma? Big Oil? Lawyers? Nutty global warming freaks/ Rich people? Poor people? Black Americans? Democrats? People who listen to Air America?

No? Funny, I don’t either. In fact, I am hard pressed to remember a president in my lifetime, or any president ever, who made a point of absolutely demonizing subgroups, corporations, industries, states, individual people, or political groups (I am exempting James Earl Carter, Jr from any discussion that involves grownups). You know why?

Presidents don’t do that
