In 2008 a largely white country elected a mixed race President. This man was a one term Senator from Illinois. The man's campaign slogan was hope and change. He said more that once that he was going to fundamentally change America. This President took his election as a mandate from the people to make his changes. Sadly the thing he naively or deliberately overlooked was his election was not a mandate for his plan. It was a backlash against the economic meltdown and the Government bailout of business. Many voters understood that this was wrong. Some voted for Obama to retaliate against the Republican President and his party. The people who formed the Tea Party were angry before the election but choices where limited. Faced with the potential of no conservative on the ballot a group of Libertarian met and raised over 6 million dollars for Ron Paul. The date December 16, 2007. Which completely blows the Presidents argument that the Tea Party is solely about his policy and somewhat about his race. Which he told a writer who is publishing a book on African-Americans in the White House.
Mr Obama is obviously one prone to knee jerk reactions. Let's look back at Cambridge his attack on the police. They acted stupidly he said. Then he found out his buddy the radical professor was dead wrong and decided to attempt to level the field by having the beer summit. But what is the basis for his reaction. Do we all know the phrase "Children Learn what they live"? My parents had that on the wall of our kitchen. And Everyday my parents showed us that hard work and honesty pays. We had seven children and guess how many of us are contributing to society? All seven. We may not agree politically but we definitely believe in working hard to get what you want. I sincerely don't believe that Mr. Obama ever got this lesson. It seems that what he was being taught was that we need to level the playing field. We need to make everyone the same. Here is an excerpt from the book. This is how he feels about race taken to a simple level.
Obama  was in a reflective mood. He began the interview by saying he had been "fully briefed" on my topic and was ready for me to "dive in." He proceeded to methodically defend his effort to build a race-neutral administration. "Americans, since the victories of the civil rights movement, I think, have broadly come to accept the notion that everybody has to be treated equally; everybody has to be treated fairly," the president told me. "And I think that the whole debate about how do you make up for past history creates a complicated wrinkle in that principle of equality."
Past history? Many whites in the Northern United States died to free the slaves. The debt is paid in blood. While this has never been a perfect country, it is apparent that we strive for equality. The results of the Civil War show that. Some of the aftermath was not productive toward that end. But the concept that everyone is treated equally is NOT really the American way. The American way is that everyone has a chance to succeed. Treating everyone equally is a Communist propaganda statement. Think back to pre 1976 education. We were taught the Communist Revolution was an effort by the poor for equal treatment. Sadly for the poor in Russia they were being used by a few sick people with a power agenda of their own. They stirred the masses against the Government. Sound Familiar?
Some at this point are saying "YES" that is the Tea Party. One problem here folks. The Tea party is a Pro-Government organization their platform is for a smaller less intrusive government. The people that surround our current President are the true anti-government group. Bill Ayers, Van Jones and even Valerie Jarrett. So how do they shut our pro small government argument down? Mr Obama intimated that race was an issue with the Tea party here is another excerpt form the book.
But Obama , in his most candid moments, acknowledged that race was still a problem. In May 2010, he told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent  "Tea Party" movement that was then surging across the country. Many middle-class and working-class whites felt aggrieved and resentful that the federal government  was helping other groups, including bankers, automakers, irresponsible people who had defaulted on their mortgages, and the poor, but wasn't helping them nearly enough, he said.
This statement shows once again just how misinformed Mr Obama is. He either chooses to ignore or is not getting all the information he needs to make these statements. The people in the Tea Party never asked for a handout. What they did say was that nobody is too big to fail. This President got that phrase put into law. The Tea Party believes the Health care system has flaws but should not be controlled by Government. The Government should allow more competition.
To all the disenfranchised people out there. You are being played by a true believer. You are being stirred by an agenda driven President beholden to Big Unions, not you. If you believe that Harold Schaitberger, Richard Trumka and Andy Stern are really working in YOUR best interest you are sadly mistaken. Your local might be working for you since the folks in charge are your neighbors but the International ,of any Union, is nothing more than a BIG BUSINESS. The only thing they can produce though is more laws. That is bad for the Country.
Before you vote in one more election, before you tell somebody that the SEIU is looking out for you. Do your research. This President is in the pocket of the unions and he is now playing the race card against the American people. Mr President you are acting "Stupidly"
