Barack, the Scary Negro

What a dramatic political metamorphosis for Barack Obama. Four years ago he was Barack, the Magic Negro. A man above race. A man of hope, not from Hope. He had the soaring vision thing going. Elderly white women and southern crackers even embraced this nice, clean, well-spoken young Senator of Illinois. Barack did not ever show real anger. Just sadness at the ineptitude of George W. Bush and a promise to do things differently and better in Washington. And rather than carp about McCain’s negatives, Barack described a vision of rainbows, unicorns, candy corn and bright, sunny skies. Instead of partisan sniping, Obama pledged to usher in a dawn of mutual understanding and peace. Hell, he even won the Nobel Peace Prize in anticipation of the great good he would do in Washington along with lowering the Oceans and cooling the blazing planet.

Here we are four years later and Obama is undergoing a Dr. Jekyl transformation. Rather than the King of Cool, he’s turned into Sherman Helmsley throwing a fit. He has become the angry black man. Now, I know that kind of Barack resonates with his base. They love Barack acting like Shaft. You know, he’s a mean mother…… (Watch your mouth!! But I’m talking about Shaft.) But how does that play with your Aunt Agnes or your Grannie Jane? Not well. White America, especially white women, don’t like angry black men. In fact, it really has nothing to do with race. They just don’t like angry men.

We do not a plethora of shelters harboing men who have been pummeled by women. But there are quite a few places sheltering women from male abuse.

And then there is the vision thing.

Check out this previously unaligned voters.

No heart, no vision, no plan. And angry to boot. That’s not a recipe for re-election. Romney will have the chance to erase the nightmare of Barack Obama. Let’s hope the former Massachusetts Governor is serious about the task.

    Another racist post from Larry Johnson.

    • http://noquarterusa.net Larry Johnson

      Yawn!

    • http://noquarterusa.net Larry Johnson

      You guys really don’t get it. All you can do is scream, “racist” when someone has the audacity to point out the reality of Obama’s specially contrived image. No where in this post do I claim that Obama is bad because he is black. That would be racist. He is the one playing to the racial sterrotypes and damned well deserves to be called out on it.

      • Bill O’Reilly

        You are obsessed with race in this post. You don’t get it. You are a classic racist, who typically do not know they are racist. Obama playing to the racial stereotypes? Again you are nuts!

        • shelldoll2

          I’ve got this one. As a black female descendent of slaves, which Obama is not, I know racism when I see it.

          I love how “you people” treat the rest of us as if we are too stupid to know what we know when we see it.

          Mr. Johnson is asking for competence and leadership. When did that become racist?

          You obviously missed MLK Jr.’s point.

          Please stop. You are an insult to his memory and the memory of all that fought and died.

          Wasn’t it Democrats that fought against Civil Rights for years? Why yes it was.

          If calling Mr. Johnson a racist over and over is the best you have you have nothing.

  • buzzlatte3

    Several have mentioned on Youtube that all the comments on Barack’s ads are moderated and there’s no freedom of speech. I understand the need to monitor because he’s president, but it doesn’t play well with U-tubers. It just adds to the odd coldness that Obama exudes. I agree with whatever former staff member said about she was surprised he was in politics because he doesn’t really like people.

    • getfitnow

      Yep. I guess she was taken to the woodshed too. I heard she walked back that comment, saying that he was just a “private” person. There have been other observations too.

      Does anyone know if he endorsed the Liddy L. legislation as it was making it’s way through congress? I heard that Biden signed it and That One didn’t. If that’s true, it’s more than ironic that he signed it into law.

  • KataKimbe

    Media bias because so many who have the platform also like to tell us who to vote for. Like the musicians, actors, athletes… do what you do best and stop trying to influence those who can’t decide for themselves who to vote for. Seriously. I have been a fan since The River… but stopped going to Springsteen’s concerts the last 3 years because of his preaching about ‘the One”. http://brucespringsteen.net/news/2012/a-message-from-bruce

    • nickoury

      I saw Stinksteen in 1975 at the Main Point (Bryn Mawr, PA.) I sat right in front, stage right. Oh yeah, I also fell asleep. Bored, yes. Tired, probably. I was 22 at the time.
      Sorry, he’s still BORING and I’m a bit older now.

      • buzzlatte3

        Ha ha! I never got Springsteen flu either although Clarence Clemons was great.

          Glad to have made you laugh and yes, I agree, Clarance was great.

      • HELENK2

        I was working in Penn Station NYC and they were selling tickets for one of his concerts. There was a line when I came into work and I thought if the line was not too big I would get tickets for my kids. The next morning i was standing in line lower level of the station. some fool had a boombox blasting. I forgot I was in NY and commented that someone ought to shoot the radio. I got turned off very quickly. I got the tickets and my kids traveled from south jersey to north jersey for the concert. I got rained out. so there was another concert and my kids went. on the way home the starter on my son-in-law’s truck broke.
        they wound up staying overnight in the truck and he fixed it in a parking lot. For years he promised me tickets to a tracker pull. My daughter like me though

    From Allen West:

    It is again apparent from the debate that President Obama talks very well but does not understand economics nor can he defend his failed economic policies. Most disturbing was President Obama contradicting Vice President Biden who just last week stated that he and the President knew nothing about a request for additional security personnel for Libya. This evening the President stated that he was on the phone advising State Department officials to beef up security as soon as he got word of trouble there. President Obama went almost two weeks declaring a video as the cause of the attack on our embassy in Libya, never definitively stating it was a terrorist attack from a group aligned with Al Qaeda in the Maghreb. And to hear Obama talk about free enterprise was painful as he more or less stated that it had failed. President Obama does not seem to believe in individual sovereignty and economic freedom. Lest we not forget, “you didn’t build that”. Another four years? Just read his FY 2013 budget which evidences his vision for America. It did not get a single vote in the House or Senate. The President was aggressive but it would be nice if he was more aggressively fighting for the restoration of our Republic rather than his own political future.

    • Hokma

      West is great!

      If Obama’s objective was to re-energize his base of leftists and the medai he accomplished that.

      What he did not do was make a dent with the voters who will determine whether he is re-elected or not.

      Romney stood his ground and made more points on what counts – economics – and the internals of the snap polls showed that Romney overwhelmingly won that argument and that is ALL people are voting on.

      All Obama did was stay in the game and but did nothing to turn it around and may have lost the election with his arrogance, his lies, and lack of depth.

  • PatW

    I made the following observation which may be considered (disclaimer: for amusement purposes only) a very unscientific poll. I just returned from shopping at one of those supermarket sized liquor store chains here in one of the deepest darkest blue neighborhoods of the already deep dark blue San Francisco Bay area. Dodger Blue is too light of a shade even to be seen in this neighborhood, wear it at your peril.

    When I entered the store, I saw directly in front of me on a special display, where all the special discounts and deals are usually displayed, two separate racks of three shelves each populated by beer bottles, which appeared to have a capacity of two 12 bottle cases on each shelf, with each bottle being sold individually.

    What I first noticed was one rack display was Obama Ale with his mug on the bottle. At first I thought that was a shameless promotion until I noticed the other rack was Romney Ale.

    The bottom two shelves on each rack were full, only the top rack on each provided a contrast. The top shelf of Obama Ale was nearly full, with only a few bottles missing. The top shelf of Romney Ale was nearly empty with only a few bottles remaining.

    More people chose Romney Ale by around a 4 to 1 margin.

  • piattq

    Please read, “Romney Trapped Obama in 2nd Debate” at American Thinker. This is the best analysis of the Benghazi part of the debate and how most of the media have really missed what Romney did to trap O and get him not only to lie but to adamantly confirm his lie. Really sees Romney doing a big win there.

    • KataKimbe

      Just wait until continuation at the next debate..

    • JohnnyTwoDog

      Noted that. He trapped Obama into saying that he knew it was terrorism on the day after the the attack

      Here’s the Aerican Thinker link:

      http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/10/romney_trapped_obama_in_the_second_debate.html

      As a disclaimer, and to state that I did not “Biden” this idea, and to pull a zero move, tooting my own horn, I did not read this article beforehand, as I posted the following comment on the previous NQ Live Debate Comment post.

      The American Thinker article gives me great comfort in believing that many, many others took away the same real truth of what actually happened at the end of the second debate.

      My earlier previous post today 10-17-2012:

      What transpired in the last few minutes of the debate regarding the Benghazi tragedy has ended zero’s career.

      zero should have simply said that he stood by his original 9-12-12 statements which were based on the continuing assessment of all events surrounding the incident. Under no circumstances do you admit to a solid point when you know you will be caught in a lie. Diplomacy is a very gray area that hides a multitude of facts behind a cloud of vagaries.

      zero has convinced himself that his own deceit is true and his task now must be for everyone to accept it to be as true as well.

      This is why zero cannot practice law. If you believe your client to be innocent and plead so, but when irrefutable evidence comes to light that he is guilty, as a lawyer, your duty is to change your client’s plea to guilty. A lawyer does not continue to plead innocence if he is aware of the client’s outright guilt. To do otherwise as a lawyer, and a person, you are stating a lie.

      zero chose to lie and stand his ground, building on that lie, trying to get others to confirm the lie.

      Unfortunately, this attempted deception is all to obvious due to the continued release of details about what actually occurred and when it was known.

      The dulpicity in this matter will undermine trust and confidence resulting in a serious loss of support.

      Romney was flabbergasted at the blatant falsehood. Being a levelheaded businessman and leader, he was stunned to have someone make a completely untrue statement and seemingly have it confirmed by a third party.

      What do you do in that situation?

      For Romney, it will be next Monday night’s debate to confront zero with the truth.

      For zero, it will be the slow drip of the many truths he chose to hide in failed attempt to save his political career.

      Will this help:
      http://www.washingtonpost.com/

      • FLDemFem

        “This is why zero cannot practice law. If you believe your client to be
        innocent and plead so, but when irrefutable evidence comes to light that
        he is guilty, as a lawyer, your duty is to change your client’s plea to
        guilty. A lawyer does not continue to plead innocence if he is aware of
        the client’s outright guilt. To do otherwise as a lawyer, and a person,
        you are stating a lie.”

        That is NOT true. A lawyer has to represent his client with zealousness even if he knows the client is guilty. The lawyer must pursue and plead the plea the client wishes, no matter what he knows about his guilt. A classic case in point would be the OJ Simpson case. His lawyers knew he was guilty, his lawyer Kardashian (deceased father of the reality TV people) removed the murder weapon in his bag. Just this week, OJ has put the actual murder weapon on sale, for $5 million dollars. What a lawyer cannot do is elicit perjured testimony from his client when he knows it’s perjury. That is the only restriction on a defense lawyer.

    • Hokma

      That is why Romney paused – emphasized it – and let it go and not just beause Crowley interferred. Romney knows that next week will be 100% foreign policy and no way of escaping the inevitable for Obama.

      There was a portion of tha speech prior to the mention of terrorism that is more critical where Obama specifically states that the U.S. does not ridicule other religions (paraphrasing). Why would he have said that? What could he be referring to?

    • getfitnow

      Great observation!! He wanted to get That One “on the record.”

  • http://twitter.com/beyondpartisan beyond partisan

    Obama was not Sherman Hensley last night. He was Hannibal Lechter. Sherman Hensley would be animated and angry, but never evil. At one point in the debate Obama had this intense angry glare on his face directed at Romney, kind of like he was saying “I’m going to come and kill you in your sleep later.” Obama had the cold-hearted look of a sociopath. It scared me. And it had nothing to do with his race, and everything to do with his heart (or lack thereof).

    • DianaLC

      I understand your point. But the thing about an evil narcissist–and they all are evil–is that they are also quite pathetic in the long run. Narcissists are often easily pushed aside by people who just plain don’t believe the “image” that the narcissist has tried to project for so long. Just being able to see through one will often put them in a tail spin. I thought it quite interesting that Romney confronted him as he did often. I think Romney knows that at some point a face-to-face confrontation with Obama will pull the veil from the eyes of any watching who hasn’t seen already that the emperor has no clothes simply because the narcissist Obama will do something that gives himself away. And I do think that comment he made about no having as big a portfolio came close. One more like that and we may see a melt down.
      (As an example, I one time finally got some people I was having a hard time convincing that my ex was a total controlling narcissist to finally see what I was dealing with. I pushed him and pushed him at the risk of making myself seem nuts when he finally spoke up and said, “I should have just beat you in the beginning and I wouldn’t be dealing with this now.”

      • buzzlatte3

        Yeah, I would have cheered to see a melt down and I know that’s kind of mean and tragic…but the curtain would have finally been pulled back on Obama’s true personality. He barely functions and not well at that. People just don’t get it because they haven’t seen him behind the scenes.

  • Hokma

    It will be interesting to see how this debate affected the polls which prior have shifted sigificantly toward Romney.

    I agree that Obama made a huge mistake by becoming this in-your-face aggressor which will scare people and maybe think that there might be something to this Reverand Wright connection.

    Based on those independent focus groups it appears he pissed off some people with his rude arrogance.

    I cannot imagine that he has any answers for foreign policy and Romney must come out and nail his excuses, lies and distortions – and continue to do it with a smail on his face.

    What I liked about Romney’s performance was that he did not back down to Obama’s attacks and, in fact, forced Obama to physically back off twice and sit down.

    • MarkFtLaud

      It was a win.

  • nickoury

    Why did zero ask jabba directly for a “factcheck” on the Terrorist Attack” clarification, if she wasn’t expected to be ready with some kind of “confirming” answer?

    Despite jabba’s futile attempt to maintain her “journalistic”
    credibility, she should never have offered any immediate response, supporting or otherwise. jabba was supposed to be a MODERATOR NOT a FACT CHECKER!

      • souphands

        He didn’t mean anything by it. He was stating a fact. The only reason gas was that low was due to the disastrous state of the economy. It had been over $4 just a few months earlier. Do you honestly not remember Democrats attacking Bush for $4 gas prices?

      Blacke are less empowered because the race/slavery card got played and no longer works.

      Romney’s defense of marriage and warnings about single parenthood being a guaranteed ticket to poverty is the best news the black community could hear.

      Sure, Obama wants the same opportunities for his daughters as he had: private schools and the Ivy League. But get real about the hood he pretends he is from when he spent the evening dropping his “g’s” again and acting ghetto tough last night.

      Yes, race card got played these past four years and it was as suspected a losing hand. Now blacks, whites, hispanics and asians all get a place at the table because they earn it, not because they browbeat over alleged past crimes.

    Of all the snide remarks, and there were many, that came from That One last
    night, the one that has stuck with me the most was his “my portfolio isn’t as
    big as yours” snide comment. That short remark basically summed up everything
    about this election and Obama.

    We have elected as president a man who is class warfare and class jealousy,
    personified.

    That one comment summed up how he really feels and how his supporters feel.
    The fact that he said it so flippantly makes it even more telling—like “You
    didn’t build that!”

      I did read that one recently (a link from Ulsterman brought me there) and also I confess to having read that blog from time to time until it became too toxic for me. Lame Cherry started to remind me of Kurtz in “Heart of Darkness.”
      But how about this script:
      Obama takes the scenario of the dead Ambassador Stevens and three colleagues and continues to spin it until intelligence identifies the person/persons responsible and the locations of said persons. Then Obama, our intrepid CIC, sends in his beloved drones, makes the kill, and declares victory and himself a hero. All before the election of course. I don’t think the public will buy it. Too much has been exposed. But Obama? He would believe this could erase all the blame he’s earned. This is how he lives.

  • elizabethrc

    Not to worry, as long as he’s got Juan Williams falling all over himself to declare Obama the winner of EVERYTHING, he’ll be just fine and dandy. Williams actually thinks Obama won the first debate! Don’t these cretins realize that in refusing to admit any faults in their man, they lose their own credibility? I suspect when Romney is elected, many of them will be joining the unemployment lines.
    Obama came across, last night, as petty and thin skinned (notice that when Romney pressed him on the oil drilling numbers, Obama, after saying at one point something about he was right, turned his back on Romney and walked away. This is a sign of unwillingness to face his adversary at a point when he knows he’s wrong. Cowardly is the word I’d use.
    He utterly misunderstands public sentiment and believes we are so simple minded that we haven’t been aware of his empty promises, his broken promises, his lies and that we are so enamoured of him that we’ll follow him everywhere.
    We learned our lesson with Jim Jones and at least our side won’t drink their Koolaid.
    It’s in our interest for him to remain so disconnected from reality and what awaits him couldn’t happen to a more deserving person.

      juan has his head so far up backtrack’s backside, that if juan sneezed people would think backtrack broke wind

        Very good.

        It’s sad really. Juan seems to have forgotten who had his back when the NPR long knives cut him off.

        I heard him say, in a weak moment, that Hannity was the first person to call him and ask if there was anything he could do.

    Larry, you really always have the perfect way to describe the situation: “Rather than the King of Cool, he’s turned into Sherman Helmsley throwing a fit.” It’s a perfect description of the way he acted last night.
    That is EXACTLY what I saw last night. I even wished the debate could go on because the more Romney challenged him the bigger the fit was going to be. There was one shot of him that showed the narcissistic snake eyes I have seen before, too.
    Now I saw a clip of him this afternoon joking about trying to get a hang of this debate thing–something along that line. Still trying to seem cool, but to people like me it’s pathetic that a POTUS wouldn’t already know how to debate.
    I loved that Luntz focus group!! I’ve always put a lot of trust in the solid good sense of the American people.
    I’m also loving driving around my neighborhood lately. Early on two nearby houses had their Obama lawn signs displayed proudly. Shortly thereafter both houses were surrounded by houses with MORE Romney signs, and a few “Fire Obama” signs to boot. Nothing like lawn sign wars.

      George Jefferson in all his snootiness was really likeable–unlike That One.

        I know that, but he was also a perfect foil for Archie Bunker, who was a different sort of jerk. George Jefferson was a cocky bantam rooster type of guy–nothing really scary about him. I felt the same about Obama’s performance last night. I was thinking that Larry was making fun of Obama’s efforts to be a mean guy. Either way, George Jefferson was not the Bill Cosby type, the cool, intelligent and funny person.

      Nev is coming to us. We will take the EC votes but don’t n eed.

      • nickoury

        At this point I hope it ends up as close as posible to the 1980 results.

      • TexMexSoup

        I think you are right. There are way way more Romney signs here in Vegas. That’s why the dems keep coming back here because they are desperate. They are pandering to the Hispanic community really aggressively. Latin community of course is just so happy to have their development arrested by the dems because all we hear is immigration. Annoying

        • MarkFtLaud

          Very annoying. We need legal immigration for good people. However, u gotta have a job. Americans are hurting. We need to slap the Red Chinese. Jobs first for Americans. Vote RR

        Can you imagine the joy of not having to hear Harry Reid any more…?

    • BettsAZ

      In my neighborhood, Mitt’s lawn signs would disappear or be trashed. On the other hand, with the election only 21/2 weeks away, Obama signs are few, as well as Obama bumper stickers. Living 3 blocks from a University this is very interesting.

  • Retired_from_SPOnaj

    So, Larry, are you saying the Obama may be going Stokely on us?

  • KataKimbe

    We will find out which Barack shows up at the next debate about foreign policy with that conservative Moderator Bob Schieffer. ;-)

    • MarkFtLaud

      Sorry KataKimbe; Bob S is no conservative. Card carrying member of the liberal elite. Last night Emptysuit once again had +4 minutes, R interrupted 37 times, Emptysuit 7. it was 2 against 1 again.

      • nickoury

        Good call.

        • MarkFtLaud

          Nickoury, your right but I’m after blood and forget sarcasm. To real and 18 days to go. You never know if they are trolls.

          • KataKimbe

            If you have been on here for awhile… you’d know I am no troll.

            • nickoury

              Kata, I was just trying to provide some cover for Mark.

              • MarkFtLaud

                Hey thanks, I need all the help I can get. I think this is the most important election in my lifetime. Larry, why dont you do something fun for us? How about (its legal) a pool in Vegas for the EC votes. That would be a fun side deal as we roll to victory. I’m off Nov 7th. 319+

      • KataKimbe

        Are you new here? It’s obvious SARCASM… note Smiley face wink.

        • MarkFtLaud

          New? I came to NQ in desperation in ’08 when I knew M had no beef and Hillary was being railroaded. I have not commented much but read all everyday.

          • KataKimbe

            OK… just don’t recognize your name. I am a Moderate Independent for Romney.

            • TeakWoodKite

              I am a rabid independent who was voting for Romney starting Nov. 7th, 2008.

            • MarkFtLaud

              I’m not a moderate. Internationally right of Attilla the Hun. Domestically liberal.
