“I Told You So”, But You Didn’t Listen!

In this attempt at literary self-serving prophecy, I will, unfortunately, share my experience and advice after the apocryphal inaugural of, Barack Hussein Obama, that took place on Jan. 20, 2009, for there are no sweeter words said than,”I told you so” by someone who was called a spoil-sport, a fascist, and eventually a racist, just for trying to tell the truth.

Many times during the excessively long presidential campaign of 2008, I pointed out the problems I saw in the candidacy of Barack Hussein Obama, which many in the main stream media, the Democratic establishment, and by gullible citizen voters, refused to recognize. This man was the most radical person running for president than any of our previous presidential candidates in all our history. Of course, I was labeled a “racist” and a “right-wing extremist” because I had the audacity to dare to state and ask some questions about who this political neophyte was and where he came from. Since the inauguration, he has not disappointed me in my assessment, as he has validated my previous conclusions with practically all that he has proposed, as his administration’s agenda has taken shape. All that talk of moderation, transparency, and openness during the campaign, has vanished as his attempt at the radical
“transformation” of our country has been his major thrust and goal. I told you so”!

I, and many others, have said that no man can regularly attend a church, for over 20 years that preached racism, anti-Semitism, anti-Americanism, and radical socialism and black theology and not have some of that venom rub off on him and his thinking. Well, the “Chickens have come home to roost”, as his once beloved mentor and pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright had said in one of his numerous “Black Liberation Theology” rants in front of his naive adoring flock. The recent dust-up with Professor Gates and Sgt. Crowley, shows how these racist tendencies have affected his psyche. He and his friend, Professor Gates, have both decried “racial profiling”, but then engage in it by using that technique against a white policeman and his “blue uniform”. They practiced what they preached against. I told you so!

Now we have him trying to shove down the throats of the American citizenry a health care bill that 61% (a recent CNN poll) don’t like, besides if it passes, it most probably will be declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, because no where in the Constitution does it state that the federal government can force anyone to buy a product or service (in this case health insurance), which they may not want, and to fine them and/or imprison them for not doing so. This is the United States and not the former Soviet Union. We, in the opposition, warned that if he is elected he would try to “transform” the country into the United States of Europe. This health care bill is a perfect example of what we warned about happening. I told you so!

Remember Obama’s confrontation with “Joe the Plumber” and his statement that he wanted to “share the wealth” to create an even playing field for everyone? That statement was pooh-poohed by the main stream media because, they claim, he was set-up by a right-wing nut job (an average guy) who was just trying to embarrass the future “Messiah” by asking him a very “simple” question which, without the aid of his usual teleprompter, he was unable to answer in his usual disingenuous way. Obama’s words were taken right out of the Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky playbooks. Now as President, he is putting those radical economic policies into practice by proposing a government run health care insurance program (mentioned before), a take over of the banks and car companies, and an “anti-capitalist” climate policy (Cap and Trade) that will put our economy in extreme danger of becoming like a third-world nation. I told you so!

He will say anything that he thinks will appeal to your best instincts, but in practice he’ll do just the opposite. This man is a charlatan and a narcissist in an empty Armani suit. Remember, I told you so!

Although it hurts me to say it, because it hurts me financially and spiritually, “I told you so”, and the only way to correct this assault on our country and our liberty, is to fight back and try to abort his anti-American policies before they get a toe-hold on our economy which will drag us down to economic oblivion. I hope it is not too late.

The liberals get crazy when they are accused of being "soft" on terrorism, but what can they say when they treat terrorists as common criminals who are eligible for all the rights our judicial system has to offer for it's own citizens? They are "illegal combatants" and should be treated that way and they should not be given their Miranda Rights so they can lawyer-up to thwart the system. Are we stuck on stupid?
Does anyone, in their right mind, feel safer with the "interloper" in the White House who thinks that, through the power of his personality, he can change the psyche of the Islamo-Fascist terrorists just by being a friend and by talking sense to them? What will it take to open up the eyes of these Obama "idol worshippers"? Remember, Chuck told you so!

Chuck, there are many of us who railed against Obama. I, for one, even threw my support to McCain - a politician I did not agree with. However, I thought that Obama coming from the Chicago political machine would not turn out as radical as he has.

I saw a great bumper sticker that summarized today's political situation. "THE THREE STOOGES: OBAMA, REID, AND PELOSI.
