Obama Oh Mama

Obama Oh Mama

The Temptation, The Mantra, The Consequences

When Senator Obama burst on the scene, I watched and listened as I found time. I was somewhat intrigued by his style and oratory skills. I even commented to someone that I think that I could consider him as one of my possible choices. I did look at him. I did my homework. Unfortunately, the more I learned the more concern grew within me. I really wanted to believe. I did. But, as the song says, “That was yesterday and yesterday’s gone.”

So what did I want to believe?

I was hoping for a catalyst for the particular reality that I desired. I wanted to believe that as Americans, we would all come together to face the very real problems that confront us with conviction of purpose, realistically, remaining fiscally responsible, principled, and compassionate.

Illusions commend themselves to us because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead. We must therefore accept it without complaint when they sometimes collide with a bit of reality against which they are dashed to pieces.
Sigmund Freud

My hoping for a catalyst met the reality of my homework, my experience, and the reality of reality as I see it. Just believing in Obama is not enough for me. However, it seems to be enough for a lot of other Americans. Just believing, it suffices for many without even looking at the details. I’m reminded of Oz and the necessity of not looking behind the curtain. However, when the curtains were drawn back, the characters were left with themselves, their individual talents, and their own responsibility to find the way.

Since most people are aware of these truths, I have to conclude that there is some strong Temptation at work that would cause seemingly reasonable people to put their critical eyes away, turn them off. Could it be The Show that is causing this suspension of disbelief? I hope so. I am comforted by the fact that even in the midst of this election drama, most people recognize to varying degrees that the media is a central part of the production, promoting the illusions. It also seems possible that there is a powerful director at work; and that Obama is only a character in a show that made full use of the art of illusion. However, remembering Freud again[i]:

Just as no one can be forced into belief, so no one can be forced into unbelief.
Sigmund Freud

I do hope that when the lights in the theater come up and the eyes start to focus, people will see clearly again.

So what is this Temptation?

I think it’s a pretty simple one. We have had a lot of turmoil in our lives these past few years. Just a few of these are: 9/11, Afghanistan War, the Iraq war, War on Terror, gas prices, inflation, growing populations demanding more finite resources, predictions of recession or worse, the media painting gloom and doom ever second of every day. Whew, I’m exhausted just thinking about them as I write. For many of the youngest voters, they would have been in their early teens when the worst of the turmoil began for the U.S.

The Temptation must be exhaustion pure and simple. We all want to be transported somewhere where all is bliss. I too wish we all could do just that. Just say Oh Mama, take the hurt away. So, we put in place our individual ‘I’m looking for a Rose Garden’ filter though which to evaluate Senator Obama. We say his name and it sounds like Oh Mama. We listen to the words, the words that matter, because he said words matter. We watch what should be issues and despicable people slide away from him, because he matters and he said that’s just the old way of politics. He’s the holder of our escape key. Why not him? He’s not President Bush, he’s not a Republican.[ii]

We so want relief that we ignore the possible catastrophic consequences of the choice of Obama. We hope against hope. We double down our bets.

We forget that our freedoms have always needed defending. They need defending from forces aboard and forces at home. They need defending against politicians and the media pursuing their own interests. Most importantly, they need defending against the innate desire of Government to grow to the point that it controls everything. That is one of the realities of life – Liberty must be defended or it will cease to exist.

The liberty of the individual is no gift of civilization. It was greatest before there was any civilization.
Sigmund Freud

I also fear that one of Freud’s[iii] other quotes may be proving itself to be true this very year, this very election:

Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.
Sigmund Freud

Or maybe some are just lazy? Oh Mama please don’t let it hurt. So here we are.

The current reality is this: The ‘I’m looking for a Rose Garden’ filters are on; many people have several pairs just in case they lose one.

What do you we need when we are looking for escape and a better place?

Quick answer: “Change We Can Believe In” – we need a mantra. It works because that’s what Obama’s people are hoping for. Change!!! Consequences? What consequences? Iran? Israel? Iraq? Job Loss? Higher Gas Prices? I have my filters on and only roses & daisies grow out of The Obama’s change. I like roses & daisies.

What makes a perfect fit?

I believe Senator Obama was hand picked to fit the mantra, and not the other way around.

Authenticity, oratory skills, family, church, charisma, charm, looks, tall, and prior admissions all work together to create the allure and illusion of honesty. In his books, he admitted to some prior drug use as a very young man so that issue is disarmed. He held it up as a growing lesson. Oh Mama would be proud. By that admission – he, the DNC, and the media have been able to deflect most other issues.

Why is it authentic?

I imagine it starting out in his mind as “Change I Can Believe In.” It’s then a small step to change the personal pronoun to ‘We’ and deliver the line with sincerity.

A man should not strive to eliminate his complexes but to get into accord with them: they are legitimately what directs his conduct in the world.

Sigmund Freud

Dr. Freud’s statement seems to be a better reflection of the kind change Sen. Obama’s campaign believes in. Getting the complexes (or complexities) of his life in accord in order to present the Image his handler(s), director(s), & puppeteer(s) desire works for both them and the Senator. However, downing playing the fact that they (the complexes) legitimately are what directs his conduct in the world, is critical to the illusion’s possibilities of success. It’s all politics. It’s all Chicago politics. It’s all smoke and mirrors.

This is a Senator with less than ½ a year in the Senate, little or no detailed knowledge of economies and their interrelationships globally, no experience in international diplomacy, no military experience. To give the appearance that he knows anything, the puppet masters are hard at work. Even with the ‘I’m looking for a Rose Garden’ filters, these facts should shatter the illusion.

This illusion of accord of Obama’s complexes allows/requires the Senator to need such a large bus under which to throw his friends, ministers, his family, anyone who gets in the way of the mission. Don’t let anyone fool you. They are delicately placed under the bus with pillows and their cooperation. We will see and pay homage to the entire list of racists, bigots, Marists, terrorists, Pentagon bombers who guided and shaped the Senators true moral/political beliefs and career in Chicago. They will probably be guests in the Lincoln Bedroom. So why is the DNC moving to Chicago? More power and influence of Obama’s network perhaps?

Do I have to go through the list of close associations? Rev. Wright, Ayers, Rezko and his associates, etc., etc., etc.

What corruption and illegal conduct alleged in Chicago is the Senator, the puppet masters, the media hiding, playing down, or covering up? Sweet heart land deals? Pay Offs? Bribes? Political favors and/or money?

What about Larry Sinclair’s allegations that in the not too distant past 1999 (much later than he states in his books), he and Senator Obama engaged in the illegal use of crack cocaine and gay sex? Oh Mama what would his mama say about that one?

What’s the role of the media in all of this puppetry, illusion and cover-up?

The change he believes in is getting elected and beginning to dismantle our economy to create a socialist nation with almost total government control. You think things are bad now. Oh Mama just you wait. When gas is $10.00 a gallon, when food prices rise faster than wages, when millions of jobs are lost just because businesses say screw this – let’s either close shop or go overseas. Then maybe you will want a chance to cast your vote again.

This all brings me finally back to Sigmund Freud:

Illusions commend themselves to us because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead. We must therefore accept it without complaint when they sometimes collide with a bit of reality against which they are dashed to pieces.
Sigmund Freud

Bits, not bits, boulders of reality are knocking against these illusions. Please wake up. You can even complain a little. But, wake up. The Senator has not gotten his complexes or complexities in accord to my knowledge. He even still smokes! However, his main complex is that he seems like a professional scammer. Oh Mama, Oh Mama. God help us.



[i] I like Freud; however, there is a lot that I take exception with. He does give us some great quotes though.

[ii] I really hope people realize the role the media has had in elevating the level of animosity towards President Bush and the Republican brand. Everyone has their faults, but theirs have been unjustly tarnished and elevated by a group that is supposed to be the objective observer. Phewy!

[iii] This is my – I’m using Freud for all my quotes article.

    The clanking coming from Obama’s closet.
    July 11, 2008 10:00 AM EST

    http://www.theconservativevoice.com/article/33164.html

    The clanking you hear in Barak Obama’s closet is Larry Sinclair. Rattle, rattle, toil and battle. Conscionably, innocently, Larry Sinclair wanted Barak Obama to fess up, “own up” as we say in the west, to crack cocaine use back in 1999. Asking people to vote for you to be President of the United States when you are a crack cocaine user just wasn’t something Larry Sinclair thought was right. He felt so strongly about the issue, that he advised the Obama Campaign that he thought Obama should tell the truth about his drug use! The nerve of the Guy!

    So what does Obama do to stop Larry Sinclair from telling the truth about the crack cocaine use? Not what you would expect. Rather than addressing the issue himself, Obama uses a messenger in the form of Donald Young, a gay Choir Director from Trinity Church in Chicago, to call Larry Sinclair. Donald Young comes right out and asks Larry Sinclair why he did not mention the sexual relationship that Obama and Sinclair shared? Now, see, Larry Sinclair didn’t even want that known. That was a non-issue. The crack cocaine use was the important thing to Larry Sinclair. “Just tell people you use crack cocaine more recently than you claim, Mr. Obama.” That is all Larry Sinclair wanted. But that wasn’t what he got.

    Gosh! Those were the good ‘ol days! A very short time ago, life was simple for the Sinclair family, wasn’t it? Donald Young, the messenger, was still alive. You do know, he has been murdered. Harassing emails weren’t a problem for Larry, back then. The person who threatened Larry Sinclair’s life and his Mother’s life wasn’t even in the picture, much less the FBI who refused charges filed against same. Back then you would had to have laughed out loud to think Larry Sinclair, with all his faults, could be important enough for the Attorney General of Delaware to take action in a trumped up case, use taxpayer expense money to travel to Washington, D.C.. and file charges for, what was that?…. say that again!…..Unknown Charges? And then he had the case sealed? Unbelievable!

    Whew! Time went by fast. What has happened since is classic textbook coverup. Obama’s paid crew have issued a battery of allegations of criminal acts to discredit Larry Sinclair. The campaign has used positions in government to attempt to render him penniless and helpless to defend himself, and there are threats of physical violence against him and his supporters. There is a tome of harassing emails from the paid Obama smear crew spewing filthy language that is not fit to be in print. It is all there, folks. What Not To Do If Someone Knows Something About You – 101.

    The Main Stream Media has taken a huge shopping spree, buying up everything offered in the Obama Cover-up Store! They have bought into the lies and smears, lock, stock and barrell, without looking into the facts, without asking a single question, or showing a modicum of respect to an American, Larry Sinclair, who bravely asked that the truth be told. The Main Stream Media is as guilty as Obama when it comes to the cover-up of this story! Shame on them!

    Over the 4th of July, I saw a program on an Italian fireworks master and how those displays were created. I saw the Boston barge loaded with the show, ready for the celebration. It is amazing stuff. Couldn’t help thinking about the explosion that is going to happen when a decent Investigative Reporter takes all the information that Larry Sinclair has made available and writes, really writes, this story.

    Message to Democratic Party, MSM, GOP, Sponsors, Endorsers, Dems Up & Down the Ballot

    By Soldier4Hillary on July 9, 2008 at 7:30 PM

    A guest post by Sgt. Patsy Rogers of Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

    http://noquarterusa.net/blog/2008/07/09/message-to-democratic-party-msm-gop-sponsors-endorsers-dems-up-down-the-ballot/

    EXCERPT

    For those in the MSM….it would be nice if you could do your jobs. Waiting until Senator Obama crowns himself to activate the Republican Clean Sweeper will not save you from your ratings dropping when we, the people, who gives you your ratings, turn on you.

    Honestly, if Senator Mccain had a Larry Sinclair, birth certificate issues, supporters who threaten lives, hacked accounts, let college students vote in the state they attend college, and then bus them home to vote in their home state, and resurrecting the dead to vote like they did with Senator Clinton ….He would no longer be in the race.

    However, I do understand ratings are important, but being on blackout for information the American people need is not the best way to maintain your viewership…..But don’t worry, the Puma community has even reached me here where I am stationed, and it will show, in the November polls.

    I know this may seem farfetched but the thing is, all of these things are documented. But if the Democratic party will not even consider visual and audio proof, what choice do we have but to fight you? It’s quiet simple if the Democratic party believes in their selected nominee and are willing to put their political careers on the line. You want your base to support you?

    Easy.. Fire the paid bloggers that are conducting illegal online activities, and if you want my vote, tell them to leave my email accounts, blog, and YouTube channel alone(they are taking FISA to a whole new level),produce Senator Obama’s original Birth Certificate,

    Admit or Deny the claims made by Larry Sinclair, I mean the Obama campaign has a specific website for it so answer the question,

    If the “whitey” tape doesn’t exist, why clarification stating Michelle Obama said “why’d he”, and not “whitey”. To insult our intelligence by ignoring it now and waiting later to answer the questions will not put anyone one step closer to Penn Ave.

    A couple of weeks ago, if you were in support of PUMA and had a Blogspot blog, you had a good chance of having your blog attacked. Some of you moved your blogs to WordPress, thinking it was “safer.”

    If you are Larry Sinclair and had your blog on WordPress, you were treated as badly if not worse by both the cyberstalkers claiming to be pro-Obama as well as WordPress itself.

    http://larrysinclair0926.wordpress.com/2008/07/12/wordpress-engages-of-obamablogernut-harassment/

    Sinclair announced yesterday he was moving his blog to a different domain, and with that news, many of the cyberstalkers came over to his blog and shit all over the comments, using other people’s handles in the process.

    DELAWARE NEWS JOURNAL CONTINUES PUBLISHING FALSE INFORMATION

    Posted by Larry Sinclair on Saturday, July 12, 2008

    http://larrysinclair0926.wordpress.com/2008/07/12/delaware-news-journal-continues-publishing-false-information/

    It appears that even after the News Journal, a Gannet News Paper was sent written documentation along with a request for a retraction to their publishing false information, they have decided to continue to publish false statements. It is for this reason that I will direct an Attorney who has agreed to sue the News Journal on my behalf at no charge to me whatsoever, to file suit against the News Journal, its parent Company Gannet, and its reporters who have continued to write this false information.

    I have not entered any plea as claimed by the News Journal dealing with any thing to do with “counterfiet money orders.” In fact that is absolutely nothing in the New Castle County Superior Court file alleging anything to do with “money orders” as has been publish twice now by the News Journal. I entered a NOT GUILTY PLEA to the charge of “Theft” as stated on the only charging document in the court file…

    To this day there has not been a single Court document or charging document provided to me, my attorney or even found as part of the court file making the allegations that the News Journal has now made twice in less than two weeks. Furthermore, the News Journal was faxed documentation showing their claims to be false. I guess any coverage of the Obama matter is better than no coverage at all.

    Guess the News Journal having papers served on them will make them think twice about repeating false claims that they were shown to be untrue about what I have been served with. In fact now I challenge anyone in Delaware to produce a single item deposited into a Rodeway Inn account with my name on it.

    (July 13, 2008) Obama = Sociopath? You Decide.
    2008-07-12 10:36pm PT

    http://www.israelforum.com/blog_article.php?aid=1563614

    EXCERPT

    Three or more of the following are required for such a diagnosis:

    1. Failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest;
    For Obama, this fits in with the Larry Sinclair allegations and the “sweetheart deal” he got for his house.

    2. Deceitfulness, as indicated by repeatedly lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure;
    Was Obama BORN Barack Hussein? Or was it Barry? Was he lying when he said his “finger slipped off the button” for some of his non-votes in the Illinois senate? Lying when he said he was a member of Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years and never knew what his “ministry” was about? There are many other examples too numerous to chronicle here.

    3. Impulsiveness or failure to plan ahead;
    In 2004 he said he wouldn’t run for President due to his inexperience. Seemingly on impulse, he changed his mind? He didn’t plan far enough ahead to “fix” the Rev. Wright problem before it became known, didn’t plan ahead in the “softening” of his wife to avoid her horrendous public statements, didn’t plan ahead on the flag pin wearing or the hand over the heart for the honor of our flag… and without a script or teleprompter to read from, stammers and fumbles for words.

    4. Irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults;
    Nothing documented here as yet, but his apparently hostile confrontation of Senator Lieberman on the Senate floor showed aggressiveness. His campaign surrogates’ misogyny towards Hillary Clinton, and their ageism towards McCain, do those trickle down from the top? He’s certainly never denounced either.

    5. Reckless disregard for safety of self or others;
    If the Larry Sinclair allegations are true, it’s clear Obama fits this profile.

    6. Consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations;
    Did he commit and agree to use public funding for his campaign then renege? Are his many absences throughout his career from his Senate duties both in Illinois and now, qualify as irresponsible? Will he be meeting with another Larry Sinclair as President?

    7. Lack of remorse (no empathy), as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another;
    His ability to throw people “under the bus” for financial and/or political gain is astounding.

    8. Superficial charm;
    Self explanatory. His public face he puts on is hollow, phony and superficial.

    9. A sense of extreme entitlement;
    Just read his book or even some excerpts, and you’ll make this connection.

    10. Persistent Lying or stealing;
    Look at the flip-flops Obama already has performed. Look at his lying about the Rev. Wright situation. Stealing? He was getting his “sweetheart deal” on his house while regular people were getting foreclosed on in record numbers; getting opponents removed from the ballot so he could steal his Illinois Senate seat.

    Larry Sinclair has received even more vile threats from people who are obviously deranged enough to commit illegal acts, whether or not the Obama campaign has sanctioned these threats.

    http://larrysinclair0926.wordpress.com/2008/07/12/who-is-john-excalibur-and-why-is-this-person-trying-to-intimate-me-and-people-who-support-me/

    The bottom line is these trolls appear to be coordinating in some kind of campaign to force Sinclair to drop the lawsuit against the online cowards who libeled him. In doing so, they open themselves up to legal charges themselves.

    You just can’t say anything about anybody, especially somebody who is not a real public figure or is borderline public figure, even if you use a fake handle in making libelous remarks.

    Sisterrosetta here: I keep hearing references to “three innocent bloggers.” Admittedly, I am ignorant as to the exact details. But I keep asking myself, if they’re so innocent and in fact did nothing wrong, then why wasn’t suit thrown out long ago?
