This President has been maligned, ridiculed, sabotaged, insulted, mocked ,mimicked…….. My question is……WHY??? Those that are guilty of these behaviors full throatedly declare that their conduct has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the color of his skin. REALLY!!??
In my lifetime (and I have lived long) I have NEVER witnessed this type of behavior with ANY other President! Opponents of this President have displayed every negative behavior towards this man and do so in the guise of POLITICAL OPPOSITION. No matter how they cloak their behavior, after considering THIS President’s conduct in office and comparing that to ALL other President’s that have come before him, it is abundantly clear that the ONLY difference between THIS president and ALL others that served before him is…..wait for it……………..the color of his skin.
Right wingers will point to THIS President’s initiatives and conduct in office and somehow ALWAYS view them as “a threat to our freedoms”. I have yet to query and receive a definitive answer from those of this ilk as to what freedoms are threatened or indeed, LOST since this President has been in office. After seven plus years AND, in view of the fact that THIS President is in the ”end days” of his service but yet, the propaganda machine against him still grinds on, I can only conclude that those at the helm of said machine(s) have ulterior motives that are not in accordance with typical political opposition.
We’re in a new political cycle so why are opponents of President Obama conducting themselves as if HE’S running again. Comparatively speaking, there is relatively little strong opposition to the players in this political cycle; most assuredly, none of them have been subject to the kinds of disrespect that THIS President has suffered for seven plus years. Certainly, the insolent, denigrating behavior that THIS President has experienced is absent towards the players in this political cycle.
Be advised that I have not agreed with EVERYTHING this President has done during his tenure; however, I DO believe that his conduct in the position of POTUS has been one that has ALWAYS been for the betterment of this country and its citizens.
In view of what I have laid out here, what can we conclude? I conclude that there are those amongst us that try to cloak their racist leanings in the guise of political debate. To those of this ilk I say………”your slip is showing”. Your behavior is old.....let's move on.
