A Study in Contrast

Obama should work hard to never have to give another serious speech with GW Bush. I listened to both and Bush was by far the better speaker. Bush understood the gravity of the moment, Obama clearly didn't care.

The press told us for 8 years how bad Bush's speeches were and we bought it, but compared to Barry O's cold, rambling teleprompter reading, Bush is by far the better speaker.

Here's one more of Barry on 9-11 in PA. He has slipped back into campaign mode.

What trash Bart. Cherry picking photos and adding captions. We used to do that as children. I watched both men speak too and I thought they both spoke from the heart and excelled. Obama did not care? How in the hell do you know that Bart? What a moronic post.

Face it the PBO is cold. From what I have noticed he has two tones, scolding, and talking down his nose lecturing.

This was on the cover of the WSJ

I wasn't the only person to notice that Bush gave a much better speech than Obama. I listened to Obama and it was his usual droning BS. His speech was difficult to follow.

Bush expressed warmth and concern, his speech touched on history with the Lincoln letter.

In a head to head, Bush is much better in this format than Obama. Bush is able to convey humility, Obama is not.

Bart, your opinion and an article in the WSJ is not conclusive evidence that the President does not care about 9-11. These are reckless and uninformed broad brush strokes on your part. The whole looking down the nose conservative talking point is soooooooo played.

Played out?
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , September 13, 2011

You wish. The swing voters have come to understand that they were duped by the MSM. The harder they look at Obambi, the less they like.

Obama's arrogance is evident in almost everything he does. The man can't give a speech without talking about himself. He cares more about re-election than any issue facing the country. His vacations are more important than anything. The man will tell any lie to try and gain favor (He honesty said that he is the first President to ever tell govt. departments to look for exiting regulations to cut!)

Little by little, piece by piece, Americans are figuring out Obama. They were duped by the MSM and the Democrat Party and they will remember this in 2012.

You can continue to believe in the first Affirmative action President, or you can open your eyes and admit that Obama is a massive, egotistical failure.

PS, who prays with their head up?
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , September 13, 2011

I have never seen anyone pray with their eyes closed and their chin up. Is this a Muslim practice?

Observant Christians, like GW Bush, pray with their chin down.

You still believe that Obama is a Muslim Bart? I really feel for you. It must be painful going thru life so ignorant. Let the President pray with his head however he chooses; it is a personal moment. Is this a sign of how petty you will become as this celection cycle proceeds?? How sad!

Ignorant?
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , September 14, 2011

Obama was raised a Muslim, he has answered the call the prayer. Rev. Wright was also a muslim.

If you believe everything that the MSM says about Obama or what Obama says about himself, you are the ignorant one. Obama may call himself a Christian, but he definitely has Muslim sympathies. The Jews in Anthony Weiner's district know this as they just elected the first Republican Representative since 1920.

The truly ignorant are those that fail to look at Obama in a critical light.

I'm not sure what Obama is, but he isn't who he says he is. He has shown that over and over as President.

ignorant
written by Woody , September 14, 2011

I sure would like the proof of the President answering the call to prayer or a photo of him facing east on a prayer rug at which time I will offer my sincere apologies. In the meantime, I consider this the claim of an ignorant person. Oh and, by the way, I am critical of the President at times.

Obama admits that he did this as a child
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , September 14, 2011

Last March, Obama was interviewed by Nicholas Kristof, a New York Times Op-ed columnist. Here’s what the Times quoted Obama as saying:

NY Times

“I was a little Jakarta street kid,” he said in a wide-ranging interview in his office [...]. He once got in trouble for making faces during Koran study classes in his elementary school, but a president is less likely to stereotype Muslims as fanatics — and more likely to be aware of their nationalism — if he once studied the Koran with them.

Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

You did know that Obama attended a madrassa in Indonesia and studied the Koran as a child, right? You call me ignorant, but you didn't know that Obama was a practicing Muslim up until he ran for office. Also, under Sharia law, Obama will always be a Muslim as his father was a Muslim. If you reject this, you are being very culturally insensitive to Muslims and their laws.

Obama's religion for the 20 years prior to throwing the Rev. Wright under the hopey bus, was black liberation theology. That's the church he attended. We must assume that was his religion.

Of course that religion was as much about communism as anything spiritual.

By attending the black liberation church, he was an apostate to Islam. By his own account his father is muslim, and he practiced Islam and attended a madrassa.

So Barry is a whitey hatin commie, and muslim apostate.
Now that's quite the combo!

Will now do his usual sulk off into the either. My guess is that he voted for this FDR clone and is now having second thoughts, centerist, patriot that he sees himself. Some of us saw it coming and were given a "hold your nose-it's his turn" McCain.

You said the President IS a Muslim not was a Muslim. Is the President an active Muslim as you speculated?? Not that I could care less since I have mentioned a number of times that a Presidents religious preference is not that big a deal to me. Fortunately, we live in a country that encourages religious freedom . If you have an issue with Muslims, that is your issue not mine. Silk off I.to the either LOL. I don't tho.k so nobody.

I asked if praying with your chin up is a Muslim practice
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , September 14, 2011

I didn't say Obama is a Muslim; Sharia Law, his dad and his entrance application to Occidental college do say that, but Barry can convert.

The Dems just lost a district in New York due to Jews protesting Obama's treatment of Israel. Did his Muslim roots blind him to the damage he was doing to this core Dem constituency? That is a valid question that many Democrats are asking today.

I care about the character of a President and what they believe is the core of their character. Some blacks and Muslims find it OK to beat their wives, I find this to me a major character flaw. Many Muslims agree that is it OK to cheat Christians and Jews as they are apostates.

If you don't wonder about who Obama is to his core, you are a pure partisan. Bush made a ton of mistakes, but I still think he is a good guy at heart. I don't think that about Obama and many people are coming around to my way of thinking.

Woodrow: "Pure Partisan"
written by jokin , September 14, 2011

Woody:

"Oh and, by the way, I am critical of the President at times."

And what would that criticism be again...? Let's see,

1)was it your echo of Paul Krugman, for Obama not "stimulizing" enough?,
2)Huffpo- for his overreach in matching Bush's foreign policy ("bush on steroids")?
3)Daily Kos- their gnashing of teeth over the reality in domestic policy that "Nixon is more liberal than Obama"?

Obama hasn't spent enough!
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , September 14, 2011

Don't you know that Obama should have done a $2 trillion stimulus, he should have abolished private health insurance and he should tax the rich at 100%.

This is the kind of criticism that Woody is likely to be talking about.
