When you want to know what kind of person you are dealing with, you listen to their words, but you watch their actions. If the two are different you know that you are dealing with someone who does not respect the truth or the person that he is communicating with. Mr. Obama talks a good talk and tries to say the right thing, at least part of the time. But when it comes to his actions, you find that it is all just hot air.
Mr. Obama’s statement that he misses not being able to get out and about without being recognized is laughable. If he truly wanted to be a real citizen without the fanfare, he would not be trying to get attention all the time. Take the other day after he and Boehner reached an agreement on the budget, what was the first thing that Barack Obama did? He took a little trip and bounded up the stairs at the Lincoln memorial. Does that fit the profile of a man that really just wants to be able to lead a normal life?
What is truly annoying about Barack Obama’s remarks is the disdain that he holds for the American people. Since he has been in office, we have learned that there is very little that we can believe about what ever he says. It has gotten so bad, that if he says something, many of us think that the truth is just the opposite. It would be nice is the man had a little more respect for people, but it seems that that is too much to expect from this President.
We have learned that he has little empathy for the hardships that he putting on the poor and the middleclass, and the rising cost of food and gasoline, is truly killing they hope that many had when he became President. The arrogance that he shows when discussing the fact that many people drive gas guzzlers is amazing. It seems that he doesn’t understand that some people have to rely on what they can get, not what they would like to have. It is hard to get a new car with better mileage if you don’t have good credit, and this President likes to pretend that he is there for the poor and the middleclass, but like everything else he does, his actions speak much louder that his words.
It’s maddening that the man who pretended to be the “Hope and Change” agent, is instead the “Rope a Dope” agent.
