QUOTE OF THE CENTURY.......MAYBE EVEN THE MILLENNIUM





Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it figured out.


"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

Excellent. The danger is not the one foolish man, Obama, but the PEOPLE of the U.S. who foolishly elected him to run our country. Obama will go but the people who have no judgement, no foresight, no common sense. Those people will not be so easily dismissed. And their children, and their children's children.

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the world at large. People everywhere had it figured out.

"The danger to America is not George W. Bush, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of a Bush presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Bush, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince -- twice, no less! The Republic can survive a George W. Bush, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

I agree....that is the major issue. obama is just the mouthpiece of a movement of people. Until the populace realizes socialism doesn't work, that's the path we'll take. Perhaps the next election? Probably not.

To be honest, I think it's going to get worse before it gets better. We always seem to lag behind Europe...and they're just now starting to realize that it just doesn't work. Hopefully we can learn from their mistakes and we can stop it before we get that far.

I'm pretty sure that's what us conservatives have been saying since the Iowa caucuses of 2008.

Stay on topic and don't change context to something that was never said. That is called lying.

It is quite scary that the outsiders can see what Obama is doing to this country. It is so obvious. Other countries with a better perspective.

But those following their leader blindly, looking for what? Someone to save them from themselves, their mediocre life? They don't see it.

We can only hope American's wake up.
