Obama Still Foolin 'em With The Easy Way Out


When will Obama actually say something original? He started out with, “It’s time for a change.” Same thing Hillary had been saying since her run for Senate the first time, and she has repeatedly said the same thing over and over again, even though she has done little to change anything. People forget as well that John McCain has been the Maverick in the Congress for years, saying and voting to change the status quo, especially on spending by the Congress. But, Obama is the man! Obama can talk the slick off of slick, but he doesn’t know what to do with it once the slick is off. His campaign slogan, “Yes, We Can,” is plagiarized from Bob the Builder on National Public Television. He even copied someone else’s speech on the economy while being critical of McCain for “just sitting back and waiting.” Believe me, I would rather have someone leading me who waited to have ALL the facts before acting than some empty suit with no facts leading us off a cliff.

Obama and his lemmings raved over how great the speech was, but when the flashy wheel stops turning, we can see that it was just a warmed over speech given by Hillary Clinton.

So when will Obama stop with the copycat speeches that have been plagiarized from others and give us what he REALLY believes can be a solution?


Have you noticed how lazy people have become? Teachers are expected to train up the children in the way they should go. The news media surely must have researched and done their homework before reporting to us what’s going on in the world; I’ll just have to take their word for it! Our ministers can do all of that studying and praying to find out what God wants. Just give us better entertainment to take our minds off of all the problems, and we’ll be happy!

Everybody is looking for the easy button, so that no actual thinking is required. There was a time when Christian believers “wrestled” over the Word of God and discussed it among themselves in order to find truth. Now it's search for the easy button. Our lives are much too busy, and we are much too important to be concerned with such a mundane thing as a worldview.

Even Obama is lazy in the way he is taking others’ speeches, warming them over, and calling them his own. His so-called “great race speech” was nothing more than a Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Bro. Farrakhan bunch of speeches thrown together in a new form, but it was still the same old con game. Even Obama’s “YES, WE CAN” was plagiarized. I’m sure he has a big “EASY” button on his desk.

When asked about the housing situation and the economy, Obama smacked his easy button and out popped a speech. Not once, however, did he say anything about how he would really solve the problem. He only flipped out a band-aid to distract his followers and immediately clamored that McCain didn’t have a plan and would just sit and watch what happened. We all know—that is, those of us who don’t have an easy button—that John McCain did not say that. He said that he would gather ALL the information together and have ALL the facts and then put forth a plan. Now that takes some wrestling and is not the easy way out.

Obama’s easy way: Fix Medicare? Raise taxes. Perscription drugs? Raise taxes. Free College? Raise taxes. Socialized medicine? Raise taxes. Obama’s solution to everything is to raise taxes. In other words, take the easy way, and don’t worry about the consequences to the American people. Don’t worry about cutting spending, cutting the pork, cutting those unnecessary “entitlement” programs, dubbed this because they have been around so long that the ones wanting the easy way in life think they are entitled to them by the Constitution. As Ken Blackwell said, “Big Brother on steroids,”—the quick and easy way to become a champion, as demonstrated by lazy (so-called) atheletes. Remember this, however: Obama’s easy way will be funded by your paycheck .

Most folks want an easy way out of everything, from government, to work, to religion. Obama’s pastor preaches that the easy way is blaming someone else for his supposed woes. Guess he forgot that Jesus never preached or taught the easy way. When Jesus was calling his followers, He admonished them to leave all that they had behind. One very rich young man who was seeking an easy way just shook his head and walked away.

Jesus told those who would follow Him that He had no place to lay his head, no shelter from the storm, and no promise of an easy life. He never spoke to His disciples of an easy way, but told them: If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. (Mark 8:34 NLT).

Two thousand years later John F. Kennedy said a similar thing in a political tone in his inaugural speech, “Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.” Certainly JFK understood that there is no easy way.

Today, politicans, such as Senators Obama and Clinton, are telling us that we need to take it easy and just allow them to decide what is best for us, and they will provide us an easy way of life. They have failed to tell us one thing: what the cost will be. Jesus told his followers in Luke 14:28-29 NLT: “But don’t begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it? Otherwise, you might complete only the foundation before running out of money, and then everyone would laugh at you.”

JFK understood the cost of freedom and the cost to provide the nation success. McCain intends to take the time to count the cost. It seems that Obama, and too many others, care only about how easy it’s going to be.

I really don't think he can win and election, but Dear Lord what if he does? I simply can not think of a greater disaster for our country. True he really hasn't said that much but what he has said is scary. He will go anywhere and talk to anyone? Boy are the nastier world leaders waiting for the American rube to come knocking. BB

Excellent article Ticker! Talk about the easy button - you've got that one right. Someone just sent me a link to this satire - it's great. "Is Barack Obama the Messiah"

I personally believe Hillary would be much easier to defeat in a general election.
The support for Obama is emotional and devoid of reason and intellect.

Exactly right.

That's why those Republicans/conservatives who did not support McCain during the primaries need to step up and consider what the consequences of NOT having McCain as our next president.

Our Dem/Lefty/"Progressive" pals can call us knuckledraggers, racists, and all sorts of related slime all they want, but the truth of an Obama presidency is something we cannot afford.

We need to keep the pressure up all through the year until election day.

The religious far right needs to understand that they are no long the "King makers" in the GOP. If they do not unite and vote with the GOP we will see an Obama victory and with Pelosi, Hillary and Reid in the House and Senate we are in for a long haul until the right wakes up and gets their act. The together. They country will be in worse shape than it was when Jimmy Carter finished his disastrous fiasco in the WH.

The Dems promised a change in 06 and got elected and so far the only change has been in the wrong direction. DOWNWARD!
