“Fool Me Once…………….”!

The whole quote is, “Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me”. What this means is that once you fall for something you should be smart enough not to fall for it again, the second time it’s your fault for not catching on.

A perfect example today is that the people who voted for Obama in 2008, because they didn’t want to be called a racist, should now have to vote for Romney in 2012 so they won’t be called an idiot (taken from a bumper sticker I saw). It would seem like a no-brainer since our economy is in such disarray and shambles, and heading for a Greece-like outcome, but not for some of our citizens, who seem to have in them the liberal gene as part of their DNA. No matter what Obama has done or said or what he hasn’t done or said, they will follow him over the cliff - you could say he is the “Pied Piper of Cluelessness” and he will be “lionized” by his faithful Zombies come hell or high water. The “Messiah” can do no wrong.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama made promise after promise, most of which he hasn’t kept. He painted himself as the “moderate” politician, which he really wasn’t, but luckily for him, in September, 2008, a national financial meltdown occurred, and, in addition, he had a very poor candidate running against him in the person of John McCain. In fact, McCain was supposed to be the center-right candidate in the campaign, but from listening to Obama speak on the stump, he sounded more center-right than did McCain. He really did “fool us once”.

After almost 4 years in office, Obama has mainly “ruled” as a far-left president, all semblance of moderation went by the wayside, as his Marxist/Socialist background came to the fore as he became a zealot for far-left causes and special interest groups, tempered only by a deceitful pragmatism which he has used to con the people into thinking he was the same moderate he portrayed himself to be in 2008.

Most all of his major policy thrusts were met with abject hostility, but he continually blamed others for his failures, especially his predecessor, George W. Bush, and other events that occurred around the world. He never seems to take any responsibility for anything he has done. He does come across as an elitist narcissist who can do no wrong.

During this campaign, the major thrust of this campaign is not his policies, but the personal inadequacies (in his eyes) of his opponent, Mitt Romney. Very little is said about his unpopular health care initiative, his failed “Stimulus” plan, or his total lack of bi-partisan legislative accomplishments (there aren’t any). It’s all about Romney’s wealth, his business career, his tax returns, his “extreme” legislative proposals, and his so-called phony “War on Women”. He wants you to ignore his lack of accomplishments, and that we should focus on him as being more likeable and the fact that he is our 1st black president, with the subtle hint that if you don’t support him, there might be a touch of racism in your actions.

So yes, the phrase “fool me once, shame on you, but fool me twice, shame on me” will apply if you vote for Obama again. Remember, ignorance can be cured, but stupidity is forever.

The Kool-Aid drinking Obama partisans are completely mesmerized with his infallability. Anybody who questions Obama is automatically accused of hate bordering on being racist. If, by chance, Obama wins in November, how will he be able to govern as he has polarized half the population to such an extent that he will be an impotent leader? Romney has shown that he can work with Democrats by his stint as governor in Massachusetts.
