Things You Should Be Whining About Today If You’re a Right-Winger

by Ben Hoffman

Afghanistan – Although there really aren’t any good solutions, complain about Obama not making up his mind about what to do. The “decider” used to be able to make up his mind on gut instincts alone, regardless of the facts!

ACORN – Complain about this being Obama’s personal organization that got him elected.

Complain about Obama taking destroying our liberties, even though we can’t name one liberty he destroyed.

Repeat the lie that Obama is the worst president in U.S. history. After all, the bigger the lie, the more people will believe it. (I believe Hitler said that.)

Blame the bad economy on Obama. Retroactively blame him.

Praise Reagan and his policies.

Complain that Carter was the worst president in U.S. history.

  1. Driving home from work today kinda thinking about all the things that Mr. Obama has done to make the citizens of America more safe and secure…damn…I can’t think of one thing. Help me out here Ben. I mean he’s nationalized two major auto makers, fires a CEO of a private company (at the same time taking it over)…in essence has taken over the banking and mortgage industries (after those in government had bankrupted them). The general in charge of the operations in Afganistan says he needs help, and Obama says he wants to “think” about it and Hillary Clinton basically says the general doesn’t know what he’s taking about, but SHE does…gawd, I feel better. Every day, there is more scandal and corruption exposed with every organization and individual that Obama has been associtated with for the past 20 years. I dare say that EVERYTHING about Obama and his administration, czars included is corrupt; and that corruption is surfacing day by day.
    No one’s complaining that Carter was the worst president in U.S. history; they’re just stating a fact.
    Obama is an extreme liberal attorney; he’s an excellent campaigner and a convincing speaker, but his actions are dangerous, and he knows nothing about governing.
    No one is complaining that ACORN is Obama’s “personal organization that got him elected”…it’s just a fact, and ACORN has been proved to be extremely corrupt…just a fact.

    So, back to my original question…what has Obama done for the security of America?

    • Read the news and you’d know what he’s done. Kind of ironic that you’re crying today about being scared when this story has been in the news for the past few days:

      “The Denver shuttle bus driver at the center of a federal terrorism investigation has begun to cooperate with the authorities, admitting that he had perhaps unwittingly crossed paths in Pakistan with extremists allied with Al Qaeda, according to government officials briefed on the case.

      The officials did not indicate whether the admissions of the man, Najibullah Zazi, made during three days of intense questioning by F.B.I. agents in Denver, clarified whether he had directly engaged in terrorist activity. And it is not known whether his account could mean he will be charged with any wrongdoing.

      But Mr. Zazi’s discussions with the authorities did seem to shed light on the suspicions that led federal and New York counterterrorism officials to begin intensive inquiries and to raid apartments in a suburb of Denver and in Queens, New York, believing he was the central figure in some kind of nascent, if still murky, terrorist activity.”

      Don’t you ever read the news?

      • Yes sir, I do read the news…though living in Ft. Worth, Texas, I’m not inclined to see every article from the N.Y. Times. I’m not really sure what the point of this particular story is…

      • You asked what Obama has done for the security of America. The CIA broke up a terrorist cell. You don’t get the connection?

        Isn’t FOX “news” reporting on this?

  2. So Ben…what’s changed? It’s not a war of necessity now? A war “Fundamental to the defense of our people”…hmmmm…so why is he not wanting to win this war now?

    the guy was lying then…or lying now; which is it?

    You continue to defend the indefensible…

    • You continue to spew right-wing rhetoric. Why don’t you wait until he makes a decision before you criticize it.

      The fact is, we’ve been in Afghanistan for almost eight years. At what point to you say, “enough?”

      • Oh that’s right, we’re to wait…
        “Right-wing rhetoric”…you’re watching a video of your ‘god’ speaking…and I asked a simple question in the comment and the previous comment and YOU do exactly what liberals do…side-step, accuse, and blather.
        I hate to say this because I kinda like your blog, and I try to find substance from the left as well from the right, but damn Ben, you should put some substance into your columns instead of name calling; and your attempts to try to demean those you disagree with doesn’t doesn’t boost your arguments. Talking down to or about people you disagree with doesn’t elevate you in anyone’s opinion.

      • Sorry, progressives don’t elevate politicians to “god” status like right-wingers do. You see, for us, politicians work for us; they don’t lead us.

        As far as side stepping the issue, you’re just fighting windmills since Obama hasn’t announced his policy yet. He already stepped up our presence in Afghanistan and it hasn’t done much good. Rather than continue a failed policy, there may be a better way. Biden has already suggested another strategy but I doubt you’ve heard of it since you don’t follow the news. You only follow right-wing opinions.

  3. Ben: Complain about Obama taking destroying our liberties, even though we can’t name one liberty he destroyed.

    Repeat the lie that Obama is the worst president in U.S. history. After all, the bigger the lie, the more people will believe it. (I believe Hitler said that.)

    Me: Complain about Bush taking destroying our liberties, even though we can’t name one liberty he destroyed.

    Repeat the lie that Bush is the worst president in U.S. history. After all, the bigger the lie, the more people will believe it. (I believe Hitler said that.)
