Please, someone do an intervention on HuffPo’s Matthew Lynch [Darleen Click]
If this isn’t parody, Lynch is in serious need of a 5150.
A lot has happened since then. I am loyal to the Democratic Party and to my president, but I am not blind, deaf or dumb. I recognize that Obama has made more than one controversial decision and rocked the boat a time or two during his presidency. Sure, he has committed his share of blunders and tripped over his own words from time to time. But, there isn’t a president in American history who didn’t flub up big time at some point during his administration. While I acknowledge he has made a number of mistakes in recent years, I stand firm in my conviction that Barack Obama is one of the greatest presidents America has ever seen. I believe history will prove this, and with time, he will be remembered in the annals of history as a revered revolutionary.
Lynch goes on to list 12 reason why he believes The Liar-in-Chief is the Bestest Prezident EVAH! Each one more risible than the next to the point where you stop laughing and become disturbed by the toxic fantasy.
3. He is for one race -the human race. In just a few short years, Obama’s professional achievements and continued demonstration of equality and integrity have done wonders for race relations. America has never been more unified as a people than it has been under the direct leadership of Barack Obama. Finally, the racial lines that have divided blacks and whites for decades seem to be narrowing.
Obama has been the most racially divisive President in modern memory. From the “beer summit” to “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Obama has done more to stir up racial animosity then when Democrat George Wallace ran for President.
7. He is for doing away with pomp and circumstance. Let’s be real -Obama is one cool cat. As the 44th president of the United States, he has changed the face of the Oval Office forever.
Why, yes … if nothing else, Obama is cool!
10. He is for peace. Let us never forget that Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 -one of the greatest accomplishments any man or woman could hope to achieve in a lifetime.
Note how Lynch talks about what Obama “says” he is “for”. Statements, not accomplishments are Lynch’s criteria of “greatness”, for just this particular President. Even the Nobel Peace Prize — to Lynch it was the awarding of it that was great, not anything that Obama actually did to receive it.
12. He is for entertaining the masses. If we have to listen to a president yakitty-yak about this or that for another four years, we might as well pick one with charisma and charm.
Good freakin’ lord. Dear Matthew, please tell us …
