A KJ Rebuttal to Obama’s Farewell Address: “If I Were A Socialist U.S. President”

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is artic­u­late and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a story­book, man.” — Joe Biden describ­ing Barack Hussein Obama, Febru­ary 8, 2007

Every story has an ending.

This one’s comes none too soon.

Foxnews.com reports that

Declar­ing “yes we did,” Presi­dent Obama used his farewell address in Chicago Tuesday night to tout and defend his administration’s record of change over the last eight years — while voicing regrets about rising parti­san­ship and frayed race relations as he prepares to trans­fer power next week to President-elect Donald Trump. 

“It’s good to be home,” Obama said in his speech to thousands gathered at Chicago’s McCormick Place. “Tonight it’s my turn to say thanks.”

Obama used the speech to warn of an increas­ing­ly divid­ed nation, saying “we’re not where we need to be, and all of us have more work to do” to solve racial and econom­ic inequal­i­ty in partic­u­lar.

Howev­er, he told the crowd that after eight years as presi­dent, he still believes in “the beating heart of our Ameri­can idea – our bold exper­i­ment in self govern­ment.”

“It’s why GIs gave their lives at Omaha Beach and Iwo Jima; Iraq and Afghanistan – and why men and women from Selma to Stonewall were prepared to give theirs as well,” he said.

Faced with the prospect of President-elect Donald Trump, who has repeat­ed­ly promised to undo much of Obama’s achieve­ments, the presi­dent spent much of his speech defend­ing his legacy. 

“If I had told you eight years ago that Ameri­ca would reverse a great reces­sion, reboot our auto indus­try, and unleash the longest stretch of job creation in our histo­ry,” he said, before listing off a series of other achieve­ments. “You might have said our sights were set a little too high.”

When he mentioned his succes­sor, the crowd booed but was quick­ly silenced by Obama. He chose not to attack Trump direct­ly, but called for Ameri­ca to redis­cov­er a sense of common purpose.

He gave a sign that he may follow this himself, by saying about plans to gut ObamaCare: “if anyone can put togeth­er a plan that is demon­stra­bly better than the improve­ments we’ve made to our health care system – that covers as many people at less cost – I will publicly support it.”

Yet, while citing his achieve­ments, Obama warned that partic­u­lar­ly on racial and econom­ic inequal­i­ty, America’s democ­ra­cy still faces serious threats. In addition to foreign threats from ISIS to Russia and China, he also warned about threats from home — includ­ing warning about efforts to label some people “more Ameri­can than others.”

While he said there had been much progress on racial and econom­ic inequal­i­ty during his time in office, he said there was much work still to be done.

“We’re not where we need to be. All of us have more work to do. After all, if every econom­ic issue is framed as a strug­gle between a hardwork­ing white middle class and undeserv­ing minori­ties, then workers of all shades will be left fight­ing for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves,” he said.

The speech, which was attend­ed by First Lady Michelle Obama and daugh­ter Malia, was frequent­ly inter­rupt­ed by cheers and applause from the audience. When he thanked his family for their support, Obama was visibly emotion­al, and paused to wipe away tears.

Obama also used the speech to warn again­st a growing parti­san­ship, which he says threat­ens Ameri­can democ­ra­cy, and risks ruining polit­i­cal debate.

“Increas­ing­ly, we become so secure in our bubbles that we accept only infor­ma­tion, whether true or not, that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the evidence that’s out there,” he said.

But without some common baseline of facts; without a willing­ness to admit new infor­ma­tion, and concede that your opponent is making a fair point, and that science and reason matter, we’ll keep talking past each other, making common ground and compro­mise impos­si­ble.”

Contin­u­ing on the theme of democ­ra­cy, Obama issued a rally­ing cry to his support­ers, saying: “If you’re tired of arguing with strangers on the inter­net, try to talk with one in real life.”

“If something needs fixing, then lace up your shoes and do some organiz­ing. If you’re disap­point­ed by your elect­ed officials, grab a clipboard, get some signa­tures, and run for office yourself,” he said. “Show up. Dive in. Stay at it. Sometimes you’ll win. Sometimes you’ll lose.”

The Associ­at­ed Press report­ed that Obama direct­ed his team to craft an address that would feel “bigger than politics” and speak to all Ameri­cans — includ­ing those who voted for Trump.

His chief speech­writer, Cody Keenan, start­ed writing it last month while Obama was vacation­ing in Hawaii.

The AP reports that former aides, includ­ing advis­ers David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs, were consult­ed on the speech.

As I contem­plat­ed how to respond to Obama’s Self-Appreciation Testi­mo­ni­al given in front of a hometown crowd last night, it dawned on me that I already had.

A while back, I wrote a blog describ­ing what I would do, if “I were a Social­ist U.S. Presi­dent”.  As we begin Barack Hussein Obama’s last 10 days as Presi­dent of these United States (Thank God.), I felt that it would be good to look back on Obama’s accom­plish­ments” with the knowl­edge that Ameri­cans showed the world on Novem­ber 8th that we have had enough of Obama’s type of “leader­ship”.

***In respect­ful honor and memory of the late, great Paul Harvey, an Ameri­can Origi­nal, (Septem­ber 4, 1918 – Febru­ary 28, 2009)***

If I were a Social­ist United States Presi­dent…

I would begin to plant seeds during my Inaugu­ral Address, concern­ing the dispar­i­ty between the Haves and the Have-nots. In other words, I would inten­tion­al­ly begin to divide the nation through the use of Racial Animus and Class Warfare.

Also, during that address I would push for a Nation­al Health­care System, regard­less of the fact that such a monstrous entity has never worked, anywhere it has been tried.

I would preach about hope and change, but like all Marxists, I would be hoping to bring subju­ga­tion and looking to “radical­ly change” a nation, all in the name of “Fairness and Equal­i­ty”.

The first thing I would do, when I took office, would be to send money around the world, to finance abortions. In this way, I would show the world that there is a new boss in the United States, who wants to radical­ly change the Shining City on a Hill into just anoth­er country.

Next, I would push for the passage of an outra­geous spend­ing bill that would actual­ly be a cover for paying back polit­i­cal favors.

I would invite the already-sycophantic Main Stream Media to come to the White House for closed-door meetings, where I would tell them to “get with the program”, if they wanted to receive any news stories from this White House at all.

I would makes speech­es about how marvelous a Government-run Nation­al Health­care  System would be, making hollow promis­es like,

If you like your insur­ance, you can keep your insur­ance. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.

…all the while knowing that I was lying my hindquar­ters off.

Once I got my slaves in the Congress to pass this nation-changing Nation­al Health­care Law, I would put the pedal to the metal and contin­u­ous­ly push for other outra­geous and expen­sive programs designed to grow the central govern­ment.

I would convince Ameri­cans that growing the central govern­ment is the only solution to a rapid­ly failing econo­my and that being unemployed and unable to provide for your family is actual­ly a “fun-cation”.

And, while Ameri­cans were suffer­ing through this Econom­ic Depres­sion, I would rant and rave about “Income Inequal­i­ty”, while my family and I would take frequent vacations, costing the taxpay­ers hundreds of millions of dollars, and throw lavish private parties at the White House, in a manner reminis­cent of the old Soviet Union’s Polit­buro.

Realiz­ing that the Heart­land of Ameri­ca was still Conser­v­a­tive in nature, I would reach out to those Ameri­cans who believe themselves to be a mistreat­ed minor­i­ty. I would reach out to those on the fringes of society. Those Ameri­cans, who because of poor upbring­ing, poor educa­tion, or simply making bad decisions concern­ing their lives, now consid­er themselves deprived of the Ameri­can Dream.

These people would compose about 47 percent of the popula­tion. They would be my core support­ers, much like Nikolai Lenin and the Bolshe­viks.

Having done a miser­able job in my First Term as Presi­dent, I would promise these Bolshe­viks that if reelect­ed, I would be their Santa Claus.

And, I would contin­ue to blame my prede­ces­sor for the wretched state of the econo­my, even though, by now, it would be my respon­si­bil­i­ty.

Once I was reelect­ed, there would be no stopping me. It would not matter to me what the popular­i­ty polls said, I would contin­ue to claim that those who provide Ameri­cans with jobs were “the evil 1%” and identi­fy their success in creat­ing the Great­est Econom­ic System in the World, as the “real reason” for the Econom­ic Depres­sion that Ameri­ca was in.

I would change the Moder­ate polit­i­cal stances which I “suppos­ed­ly” held during the campaign for my first election as Presi­dent, and show my true colors, follow­ing a polit­i­cal path pursuant to my true Far Left Radical Polit­i­cal Ideol­o­gy.

Revert­ing back to the one job in my life that I was good at, that of being a “Commu­ni­ty Organiz­er”, I would encour­age an “Us Vs. Them” Racial Division in Ameri­ca, support­ing out-of-control rioters over those who protect the Citizens of the United States, the Thin Blue Line, America’s Police Depart­ments, because then, I could use the situa­tion to create my own Nation­al Police Force.

I would alien­ate Conser­v­a­tive Chris­tians living in America’s Heart­land by vilify­ing them as “Bitter Clingers”, margin­al­iz­ing them through­out my presi­den­cy, even to the point of lectur­ing them in my Easter Address, telling them to get off their “high horse”, basicial­ly saying that the follow­ers of Jeus Christ, the Son of God, are no better than the murder­ous follow­ers of Mohammed, whose Ideolog­i­cal Brethren contin­ue to murder Chris­tians in the Middle East.

I would push for “gay marriage”,  demoniz­ing Bible-believing Chris­tians, who might oppose it as “bigots” and “haters” and I would voice my support for the legal­iza­tion of marijua­na.

Through redefin­ing the defin­i­tion of the family unit, and elimi­nat­ing Chris­tian­i­ty from every­day Ameri­can Life, I will elimi­nate the “backbone” of the nation…the two main barri­ers that will keep me from radical­ly chang­ing Ameri­ca into a social­ist nation.

Through pushing for the legal­iza­tion of marijua­na, I would succeed in dumbing down the popula­tion and elimi­nat­ing their desire to succeed as individ­u­als, making them even more subservient and reliant on the Almighty State for their very existence, thus creat­ing a new “Prole­tari­at”.

Regard­ing Foreign Policy, I would bow in defer­ence to other world leaders, demon­strat­ing to them and the rest of the world, that I do not believe that the United States of Ameri­ca, whom I am supposed to be the Biggest Advocate for, is excep­tion­al in any way.

I would not negoti­ate with America’s Enemies from a position of strength. Instead, I would blind­ly trust those who have sworn to kill us, even if they are on the thresh­old of build­ing a nuclear bomb, simply because I identi­fy with their Polit­i­cal Ideol­o­gy, which masquer­ades as a religion.

I would pull out of still turbu­lent areas in the Middle East, encour­ag­ing the Barbar­ic Forces of Radical Islam to move in and conquer the very cities where our Bright­est and Best sacri­ficed their lives in service to Ameri­ca.

On the 70th Anniver­sary of D-Day, I would sit at a solemn Inter­na­tion­al Memori­al Service, smack­ing my gum like a cow chews his cud, as if I was behind the bench at a Chicago Bulls Basket­ball Game, dishon­or­ing our fallen and enrag­ing our allies.

In other words, I would embrace America’s Enemies, and alien­ate America’s Friends.

I would use the finest military in the world as a subject for Social Engineer­ing Exper­i­ments, ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and moving women into combat positions, even though their lack of physi­cal strength would endan­ger the Ameri­can Soldiers they are fight­ing beside.

Follow­ing this, I would  eventu­al­ly allow­ing the “Trans­gen­dered” to serve in our Armed Forces.

I would remove God from the Armed Forces and forbid soldiers from speak­ing about Christ to others. I would also begin Military Train­ing which would identi­fy Evangel­i­cals as “Terror­ists”.

While I am at it, I would push for my wife to be able to place the military on a diet plan that is similar to the one which would already be failing in America’s Public Schools.

I would trade 5 Murder­ous Muslim Terror­ist Gener­als, for one useless, traitor­ous, Ameri­can Army Desert­er, who was discharged in 2006 from the Coast Guard for Psycho­log­i­cal Issues, who later convert­ed to the Religious/Political Ideol­o­gy of his Captors, and whose Father’s Youtube Account praised the same Radical Muslims and their Polit­i­cal Ideol­o­gy which poses as a religion, just because I wish to make a Polit­i­cal Point about closing the prison in which the enemies of our country were being held.

I would use the Judicial System, The Depart­ment of Justice, the NSA, and  Inter­nal Revenue Service as my Palace Guard, using Activist judges to overturn the will of the people and harass­ing polit­i­cal opposi­tion through uncalled-for Tax Audits.

I would use unmanned drones and blimps for unwar­rant­ed surveil­lance on Ameri­can Citizens.

I would push for Gun Confis­ca­tion, calling it “Gun Control”, in the “name of the children”, all the while support­ing the murder of the unborn in their mothers’ wombs, because having a baby is “a punish­ment”.

Because, after all, as Vladimir Lenin said,

One man with a gun can control 100 without one. 

I would imperi­ous­ly announce that if Congress did not pass the laws that I wanted them to pass, I would go around them and rule by Execu­tive Order.

I would open our South­ern Borders, bypass­ing our immigra­tion laws, encour­ag­ing millions of illegal aliens to enter our nation, includ­ing unaccom­pa­nied minors, spurred on by propa­gan­da inten­tion­al­ly leaked to their Latin Ameri­can Home Nations in support of this Mexican Munchk­in Migra­tion.

All the while, pushing Congress for “Immigra­tion Reform”, i.e., “Amnesty”, in order to assure that my Polit­i­cal Party would hold onto their Polit­i­cal Power, in order to finish the inten­tion­al “Radical Change” of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

And, if Congress refused to follow my wishes, I would attempt to grant Amnesty through “Execu­tive Order”, bypass­ing the System of Checks and Balances that America’s Found­ing Fathers put into place, so long ago, in order to avoid a monar­chy, such as they rebelled again­st.

I would blame others for my incom­pe­ten­cy. I would portray myself as a victim of a Capital­ist System and a Racist Ideol­o­gy that was still preva­lent in a nation that was too narrow-minded to allow me to lead them to a Social­ist Paradise, even though my wife and I were worth millions or dollars, I was the Presi­dent of the United States of Ameri­ca, and we took numer­ous vacations and went on “fact-finding missions” at the expense of the Ameri­can Taxpay­ers.

Final­ly, if I were a Social­ist U.S. Presi­dent, I would desper­ate­ly try to deflect any blame away from my polit­i­cal party and My Former Secre­tary of State, a lousy candi­date, for losing the Presi­den­cy to a “rank outside, an Ameri­can Business­man and Entre­pre­neur, a “Citizen States­man”, if your will.

I would have my intel­li­gence agencies publi­cize a story that Vladimir Putin, a man who believes me to be nothing but a wuss and to be a poor excuse for a leader of a country, to have used cyber-technology to somehow influ­ence the election. Later, as more infor­ma­tion would be revealed, I would be forced to admit that “Russian Inter­fer­ence” actual­ly did not have any influ­ence over the election. Then, I would park Ameri­can Tanks on the Russian Border, simply to prove what a “tough guy” I was.

…In summa­tion, Ameri­ca has suffered for 8 years under a Former Commu­ni­ty Organiz­er who suffers from a massive ego fueled by a condi­tion which I have dubbed “Educat­ed Beyond His Intel­li­gence Syndrome.” Obama firmly believes that he is the most intel­li­gent person in any room which he enters.

Obama has been a miser­able failure.

Joe Biden’s descrip­tion of Obama as being “clean and artic­u­late” proved to be a poor substi­tu­tion for having a spine and being a capable leader.

Until He Comes,
