Go on, give me a rational, non emotional, non name calling explanation, without calling me racist, etc

This one is easy. The Republicans are hell-bent on dismantling the country and selling it to the highest bidder. For over a decade, they have subverted elections and continually disregarded the spirit of the representative republic we inherited.

The paintings in question are indicative of the kind of person who has never ever thought about anything ever and has never cracked a book and doesn't care whether or not what he believes is true. The Obama image is not evil, twisted propaganda that appeals to racists and the feeble-minded. It's an example of the simple and traditional "vote for me" imagery most candidates employ.

You're still talking from political perspective.....apart from the obama painting being adopted as a campaign tool, there is no difference

Also, regarding your first sentence, you are drinking the koolaid.....the D's and R's are both sides of the same coin....we are being played for suckers.


Democrats want to make out with your girlfriend. Republicans want to kidnap your mother and your wife in the middle of the night and sell them to a rich Middle Eastern sheik and strap you into a chair so they can force you to watch every step they take into sex slavery. All the while, Republicans are tossing softballs at your scrotum and force-feeding you deep-fried Snickers bars so they will get more entertainment out of chaining you to a treadmill that provides electricity to the fark machine your daughter is strapped into.

cman: I can't wait to see how this will be described as somehow racist. That will be fun to watch


For your convenience, I have put the appropriate rebuttal below.

Dr. Mojo PhD: I love how lunatic conservatives operate.

First, have registered (or better yet, ELECTED) Republicans send out crap like this:
i.imgur.com
(Watermelons on the White House lawn, sent by Los Alamitos Mayor Dean Grose, in March 2009, a scant two months after Obama was inaugurated -- I'm sure they were just criticizing 3.5 years of bad policy decisions, though)

And this:
i.imgur.com
(Obama Bucks, sent by Diane Fedele, the president of the Republican women's club in San Bernardino, in October 2008, a month before Obama was even elected -- I'm sure they were just criticizing 3.5 years of bad policy decisions, though)

Second, DON'T CALL OUT THESE RACIST ELEMENTS OF YOUR PARTY. Acknowledging they exist will foul the next few steps. You must pretend as if this never happened.

Third, allow liberals to rightly call this racist.

Fourth, criticize Obama on something not related to this. Then, to immediately shelter your statement from criticism, "predict" that liberals will call your criticism racist because they have a history of calling actual racism racist. Pretend that because a Republican sent out pictures of Obama as a lazy, watermelon-eating negro, this means liberals will view your argument in the same light. This automatically shelters you from criticism, instantly makes you the real victim, and turns you into Innocence Abused.

Instant win and totally not-transparent-at-all hug-bait that only works on people that exist in your echo chamber whose arguments are so fragile that not only can they not withstand critical examination, but you need to make yourself the victim to feel that any critical examination is unfair slurs against your character.

It's like a fun contest. I'll give it a try:

One of them is a picture of a candidate and a one word slogan. The message seems to be "vote for Barack Obama for change."

The other is a picture of an everyman holding the Constitution in one hand, and a stack of money in the other hand, while some presidents stand behind him applauding, cheering, and praying, and other presidents recoil in horror and look down in shame. The message seems to be "Respect the Constitution and you'll make a lot of money while making the good presidents happy and making the bad presidents horrified and ashamed."

Jonathan Hohensee: You signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act


It didn't work because it was hamstrung by Senate Republicans. Had it been as strong as economists said it needed to be in order to work, the GOP would have killed it by filibuster because f*ck Obama.

Jonathan Hohensee: You signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law


Most of the people who oppose "Obamacare" only oppose the "Obama" part and are in favor of its provisions, such as being able to keep your kids on your health plan until they turn 26 and not having coverage deined due to pre-existing conditions.

Jonathan Hohensee: You appointed over thirty Czars without any Congressional oversight to control every aspect of the country.


And how many czars were installed by Reagan, Bush The Merely Okay, Clinton and Bush The Terrible?

Jonathan Hohensee: You intervened in the troubled automotive industry, renewing loans for General Motors and Chrysler Corporation to continue operations while reorganizing. Over the following months the White House set terms for both firms' bankruptcies, including reorganization of GM giving the U.S. government a temporary 60% equity stake in the company. Where in the Constitution does it say the government can do that?


Something, something, general welfare....

Would you rather Obama had let GM and Chrysler go tits-up and have thousands or tens of thousands of people lose their jobs?

Jonathan Hohensee: You signed into law the popular Car Allowance Rebate System, known popularly as "Cash for Clunkers." In the middle of our country's worst financial crisis you give out freebees with taxpayer dollars?


Okay, that one I'll grant, since it probably could have been handled a little bit better than it was. Still, the money its participants saved by not having to spend extra money on gas and maintenance for their old beaters is money they can put into the economy (to help the rest of the country) or into their savings accounts and/or towards their other bills (helping themselves, and thus their ability to contribute to the economic recovery)

Jonathan Hohensee: You used your executive powers to shakedown British Petroleum after the oil leak catastrophe in the Gulf to create the $20-billion escrow (slush!) fund without any law, legal controls, or binding rules to guide it on how and how much those injured materially by the oil spill (and whom among them) will be paid.


You'd rather BP not have been punished for the Deepwater Horizon disaster at all? (I mean beyond the billions of dollars' worth of oil spilled because they wanted to save a few hundred dollars by cutting funding for safety equipment)

Jonathan Hohensee: You attacked Libya without consulting Congress to declare war. We were not being attacked and it was an unprovoked act of aggression.


Bush attacked Iraq without consulting Congress to declare war. We were not being attacked and it was an unprovoked act of aggression. And the US involvement was limited to helping the French-led NATO coalition with logistics for their close-air support mission for the Libyan rebels' uprising -- there was not a single pair of American boots on the ground, apart from the CIA ghosts who were already there and would have been there regardless of whether or not there was a rebellion.

And you seem to have "accidentally" forgotten to mention that most (if not all) of the people complaining about that are the exact same people who were complaining that Obama WASN'T attacking Libya.

Jonathan Hohensee: You signed the NDAA.. All though it was necessary to pass a military budget, the disregard for the Fourth Amendment is stunning. Where is the Supreme Court on this one?


The Fourth Amendment-raping language was put into the bill by Senate Republicans on threat of filibuster. It's called a poison pill - adding an abhorrent rider to a must-pass bill, so that the other side would be lambasted for either killing the must-pass bill or (as you are doing) passing the bill with the abhorrent add-on.

SCOTUS will have an opinion on this one when (and if) they hear a case to which this bill could conceivably be even tangentially applied.

Jonathan Hohensee: You believe that the Constitution is a living, breathing document. I thought that the only way to change the Constitution was to amend it? It's not all your fault, Mr. President. If Congress and the Supreme Court did their job properly you would have been checked and balanced.


The President is not a dictator. The only laws he can create are the ones that get passed by Congress first, and given that the official policy of the party which controls Congress is literally "Defeat Obama at all costs!", there's no reason why you could possibly say that he hasn't been checked and balanced.

And since you're almost certainly gonna retort with the tired old "The Democrat Party has the majority in the Senate!!!1!" canard, let me just say that:

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS NOT HAD A FILIBUSTER-PROOF MAJORITY FOR MORE THAN 6 MONTHS OF OBAMA'S PRESIDENCY!

Oh man, this Obama guy is truly history's greatest monster:

Unconstitutional?

You signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. But now we can see that the administration's trillion-dollar stimulus plan clearly is not working. Both the Constitution and history are witnesses that testify that the Stimulus Plan is both a federal usurpation of power and economically misguided. It may very well cause another "catastrophe." You said that this plan would create jobs immediately and keep the unemployment rate below eight percent. We are now at about 9.5%. Americans are asking, "Where are the jobs?" With 14.6 million people officially jobless, and 5.9 million who have stopped looking but say they want a job, and 8.5 million who are working part time but would like to work full time, you end up with nearly 30 million Americans who cannot find the work they want and desperately need. The ARRA is primarily designed not to stimulate the economy, but to build the size and scope of government. Government spending plans do not stimulate the economy. They are based on the idea that feeding "new" money into the economy will create economic growth. But the money isn't new.it's either taxed or borrowed. It's essentially redistributed from one group of people to another, and no new money is created. And also, State governors, looking down the gun barrel of long-term spending forced on them by your "stimulus" plan, are saying they will refuse to take the money. This is a Constitutional confrontation between the federal government and the states unlike any in our time.

You signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law. The federal government is now forcing Americans to buy health insurance. Even with the disapproval of the American majority you pushed through what we call "Obamacare." Over 27 states are now suing the federal government over your health reform law. This law began the process to socialize America's health care system. It forces Americans to buy health insurance from a private company against our will.

You appointed over thirty Czars without any Congressional oversight to control every aspect of the country.

You intervened in the troubled automotive industry, renewing loans for General Motors and Chrysler Corporation to continue operations while reorganizing. Over the following months the White House set terms for both firms' bankruptcies, including reorganization of GM giving the U.S. government a temporary 60% equity stake in the company. Where in the Constitution does it say the government can do that?

You signed into law the popular Car Allowance Rebate System, known popularly as "Cash for Clunkers." In the middle of our country's worst financial crisis you give out freebees with taxpayer dollars?

You used your executive powers to shakedown British Petroleum after the oil leak catastrophe in the Gulf to create the $20-billion escrow (slush!) fund without any law, legal controls, or binding rules to guide it on how and how much those injured materially by the oil spill (and whom among them) will be paid.

You attacked Libya without consulting Congress to declare war. We were not being attacked and it was an unprovoked act of aggression.

You signed the NDAA.. All though it was necessary to pass a military budget, the disregard for the Fourth Amendment is stunning. Where is the Supreme Court on this one?

You believe that the Constitution is a living, breathing document. I thought that the only way to change the Constitution was to amend it? It's not all your fault, Mr. President. If Congress and the Supreme Court did their job properly you would have been checked and balanced.

So Calvin Coolidge cut taxes on the rich.... and we had the crash of 29.

Regan cut taxes on the rich.... and we had the crash of 87.

Bush cut taxes on the rich... and we had the crash of '08.

I'm starting to see a pattern here -- if you let the rich keep too much of their money, they fark up the economy. Therefore, we should tax them to death to prevent economic calamity.

This is the prequel to the Cthulhu painting. The guy has already summoned and bound the ghosts of a lot of the country's founders, obtained the original constitution to symbolically represent the nation and bargain with it, and now he's looking to the sky at Great Cthulhu and selling him the USA for a handful of cash. Obama is rightly saying "hey buddy I wouldn't do that". But he's all like "No way I do what I want! I'm gonna be eaten first, fhtagn!

The Empowered Man

He represents every man, woman and child of every color and creed who is an American. Like you and me, he hopes for a better life, to find the American dream of happiness and prosperity. But now, because of unconstitutional acts imposed upon the American people by our government we stand on the precipice of disaster. What will his opportunities be in the future? Will he ever have a chance to realize the American Dream?

Yes! He has got off his bench, ripped the Constitution out from under the feet of Obama and holds it up to the world. He is empowered to save our nation.

How? He understands the Constitution and liberties and laws therein. He also carries a Bible in his right coat pocket. He knows from where his true empowerment comes.


So he hides the True Power in his pocket while he holds up false idols in both hands? Where's your Christian principles, McNaughton?
