If it Quacks Like a Duck.......

The old expression which went like this, “If it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it must be a duck”, could easily be applied to our “Appeaser in Chief”, Barack Hussein Obama, when he is labeled as a Socialist/Marxist (according to a recent poll over 50% of those polled labeled him a Socialist). He scoffs at the connotation, but when he says that we should “redistribute the wealth”, he quacks like a Marxist duck, when he goes around the world apologizing for the past actions of the U.S.A., he walks like a self-hating American duck, and when he goes on vacation to plush resorts and plays many rounds of golf during national emergencies, he looks and acts like an elitist duck. To some of his Kool-Aid drinking supporters, those depictions are unfair and to some, are racist (What else is new? That's the label they use for anyone who criticizes him).

Some say you can judge a person by the company he keeps or the friends he hangs around with. Let's look at that for a moment as so much is unknown about his life (most of which he has deliberately kept under wraps). Here's what we do know, when Obama was growing up in Hawaii, he had a family friend, Frank Marshall Davis, as a confidant and a mentor. It is commonly known that Davis was a card carrying Communist who was under surveillance by the F.B.I. In his book, Obama referred to Davis as his mentor during his teenage years, Do you think the Socialist/Marxist philosophy was bandied about by Obama and his mentor during this time of his life? Dollars to donuts says that would most likely be the case. Teenagers are very impressionable during that time of their lives.

When he left Hawaii to attend college on the mainland, he stated, in his book, that he hung around and clung to leftist friends and leftist-oriented professors whom he felt comfortable with. I'm sure the usual Socialist/Marxist theories, prevalent in college, abounded around him during these years of self-awakening.

When he arrived in Chicago at the end of the 80's and showed a leaning toward starting a career in politics, he became a Community Organizer, and worked with the Socialist organization ACORN. During this time, who did he attach himself to for guidance and support? You guessed it, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ, a virulent anti-Semite, anti-American, “Black Liberation” preacher who has identified himself as a Socialist. His friends in Chicago, during his preparation for a political career, included the self-proclaimed domestic terrorists, Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, who have proclaimed that they are Marxists besides being part of the former terrorist group, the “Weather Underground”. In addition, while he was a law instructor at the University of Chicago, he became close friends with Rashid Khalidi, a professor at the school and a supporter of militant Muslim causes.

As President, he has surrounded himself with a preponderance of leftist-oriented people including known Communists Van Jones (since departed from the Administration) and Gary Samore, and admitted Socialists such as Mark Lloyd, Donald Berwick, Cass Sunstein, Carol Browner, Rahm Emanuel, Ron Bloom, John Holdren, Ashton Carter etc., etc.

So when people call Obama a Socialist/Marxist they are making an honest evaluation as to what his political philosophy is. You could say that if he quacks like a Socialist, walks like a Socialist, and looks and acts like a Socialist, he must be a Socialist. Does anybody disagree with that conclusion?

Talking about fowl, it seems that Obama's "chickens are coming home to roost" (his mentor Rev. Jeremiah Wright's famous expression) in this coming election. If Obama could run the country as well as he campaigns, he might have something to shout about, but it seems all he can do is campaign around the country on the taxpayers dime. What a disgrace he has turned out to be. We must vote out of office the (Democ)RATS who are shilling for his Marxist agenda. Vote on or before Nov. 2 to clean the House and Senate too.
