President Obama’s Greatest Accomplishment Is Exposing Un-American Republicans


Presidents’ Day was originally established to honor the nation’s first president, George Washington, on or near his birthday, but for some time it has been an occasion to honor all presidents. For many Americans it is a day off of work, and for many more it is a time, like every holiday in America, to be bombarded with special sales. Instead of looking back at former presidents and either marveling at their achievements, or decrying the devastation they wrought on this country, it is worth taking stock of the current President for two specific reasons. First, what Barack Obama accomplished that will cement his place in history as one of the country’s greatest Presidents, including his greatest accomplishment of all. And second, to challenge the President’s detractors on just a sampling of the mountain of lies they have spouted since before Obama was even inaugurated and continue unabated.

Conservatives, in their various iterations, have accused the President of committing all manner of slights against the American people and garnered support as well as legitimacy among their racist supporters because they are inherently ignorant and suspicious of people of color. They also depend on the preponderance of stupidity and willful suspension of disbelief at bizarre assertions among a certain segment of the population to perpetuate the mountain of lies about the President. Without the overwhelming stupidity and fear of “the other” rampant among conservatives, racists, and religious fundamentalists, any one of the lies about the President would be dead before they left a Republicans’ lying mouth.

For example, Republicans have spent over six years claiming that Barack Obama is coming for Americans’ guns, and yet there has been no gun safety legislation passed or absurd “gun confiscations” during the President’s tenure in the White House. In fact the last gun control legislation was a ban on assault weapons 20 years ago in spite of a rash of mass shootings using assault weapons. Still, one sees myriad polls on websites sponsored by conservative groups and the NRA asking if Republicans should fight against Obama’s gun seizure crusade. These claims have not been reserved to the NRA and gun fanatics; Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sent out a letter during his campaign last year warning Kentucky voters that they need a strong Republican Senate because Obama was coming for their guns. It has been a six year accusation and it is time for Republicans, the NRA, and seditious teabaggers to prove the assault on the 2nd Amendment or shut down the lies.

Another common charge is that the President has eviscerated the U.S. Constitution and yet, Republicans cannot produce one shred of evidence backing up their claim. Oh it is true that nearly everything Obama does brings the usual charge that he is violating the Constitution, particularly in issuing executive orders every one of his white Republican predecessors issued. As a matter of fact, right now Republicans are threatening to endanger American lives and shut down the Department of Homeland Security because John Boehner and Ted Cruz claim the President’s executive action on immigration enforcement is ‘unconstitutional.’ However, according to the Roberts conservative Supreme Court, the President’s actions are perfectly constitutional; and that ruling is without citing the precedent set by every Republican president since Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Republicans claim this President is hostile to the nation where their true loyalty lies, Israel, and yet he has given more of American taxpayers’ money to support Israeli warmongering than any other president; Republican or Democrat. It is true that Obama has not appointed Benjamin Netanyahu to his war department, or obeyed the Israeli prime minister’s orders to declare war on Iran like George W. Bush did in invading and occupying Iraq, but that is not hostility towards Israel. That is not allowing a foreigner to dictate American war or Middle East policy; something most Americans would consider being a strong American President.

The religious right, and their Republican facilitators, has spent the past six years claiming President Obama is waging war on and persecuting Christians. Many of the seriously fanatical evangelicals claim the President is ready to begin burning down churches and imprisoning Christians in FEMA concentration camps any day. It is true the President has not shred the Constitution and declared that America is a Christian theocracy, and he did state that the right to use birth control belongs to a woman, and not evangelical extremists, but that is not persecuting Christians; it is upholding the Constitution. It is time for the religious right to prove how this President persecutes them by adhering to his oath of office to support and defend the constitution; or shut their lying evangelical mouths forthwith.

Those are just a sampling of the Republican accusations against Barack Obama that have no basis in fact, and do not include that he is not an American, supports Islamic terrorists, is imposing Sharia Law on the nation, and “treading on Americans’ freedoms and liberties.” Add in taxing people into poverty and spending like there is no tomorrow and one gets the picture; Republicans are rank liars and frankly state precisely the opposite of any and everything this President represents or has accomplished in the face of unrelenting Republican attempts to sabotage his Presidency and America.

The President’s achievements and accomplishments are too numerous to mention, and frankly are cited daily as the economy improves, America stays out of wars, and the nation’s reputation recovers around the world. There is one accomplishment that, although notable, is not something the President is likely proud of but cannot be ignored; he has exposed conservatives in general, and Republicans in particular, as racists, enemies of the people, and un-American.

It is likely that at no time in American history, except for the Civil War, has there been a concerted effort by one faction of Americans to decimate the economy and work tirelessly for the government’s failure and demise; all because Americans elected an African American man as their President. The President’s contribution in exposing the fascist un-American efforts by Republicans is that he has stayed the course with grace and dignity despite an overwhelming and concerted effort to destroy his Presidency. In fact, although Republicans did not say, like the filthy Rush Limbaugh, that they hope the President fails, they have made every effort to see Limbaugh’s hopes come to fruition.

Whether they met in private to plot against Obama’s effort to save the economy, tried to destroy the full faith and credit of the United States, kill millions of Americans’ jobs, or withhold funding for diplomatic security around the world, Republicans have shown their true nature and it is contrary to what any sane American would call patriotic. Through it all, this President wrongly asserted that “Republicans are patriots; they just have a different idea about how to govern.” Nice words, but untrue and the President probably knows that sad fact.

No American patriot, regardless their political affiliation, deliberately and with malice aforethought, attempts to harm this country or its people, or conspires with foreign governments and agents to push Americans into a war of convenience or destroy its precious environment and endanger the health of its people. On this Presidents’ Day, one hopes that the current President continues asserting his agenda for Americans and finds the fortitude to tell the American people what many already know; Republicans are not patriots, they do not love America, and have nothing but contempt for its people. If President Obama would do that, he will go down as the one of nation’s greatest Presidents for, if nothing else, identifying this country’s real enemy.

  1. Barack Obama is more American than any gop politician in office now. He does more for the people of this country than the middle class haters,republicans. Obama saved America from the horrific Bush failed policies.

  2. Well said Rmuse. Republicans like to wrap themselves in the American Flag and call themselves patriots while using buzzwords like “freedom” and “2nd Amendment rights”, but their actions belie their words. They’ve done more harm to this country than any terrorist ever did. They’ve allowed more Americans to die by refusing to expand medicaid than did on 9/11 and yet the low information or misinformed voter continues to vote them into office.

  3. Citizens United is now framed as “money is speech”, any attempt to reign in corrupting money in politics is an attack on the First Amendment.
    Every bit of the GOP is deceitful, PAC’s with names that do the opposite ,Americans for Prosperity, yeah the 1%. And on and on .
    Every continuing resolution is a threat to close government or laced with poison pills.
    The latest is the Homeland Security Funding hostage negotiation… Boehner did his job the Senate Democrats need to get off the dime… F*** You.. laughable bills come out of the tea house and you think grownup can fix temper tantrums? The Kochs have so much money, no body cares anymore ,the whack job idiots from the crazy States just don’t mind getting laughed at when they make appearances in England, Cairo , etc.. oblivious to the goings on in the real world . Emboldened by Koch money to destroy America knowing they will be elected and don’t even have to fund raise.

  4. Hello, Rmuse,

    Any chance I could have you join me on my radio show to talk about this?

    “The Chip Evans Show”

  5. And, while all the slings and arrows have fallen around President Obama and his family, we have to truly admire his grace under fire.

    When you talk about what a Christian should be, we need look no further than Obama’s Christ like examples in dealing with the Devil’s Disciples.

    President Obama is a remarkable person.

    Which I already knew that about him when I voted for him.

  6. Like I keep telling the clueless Goebbels Channel watching people I know, that they hate the Obama that the Goebbels channel has presented and demanded is factual without a shred of evidence. The Reich Wing invented the Obama that they ran against two times and LOST! And besides it takes little or no effort to make Republicans/Conservatives Un-American…just ask them questions and let them speak..self destruction is assured.

  7. If you believe President Obama is a secret Muslim who wants to spread Islamic law in the U.S., consider this.
    When you look carefully at many Islamic countries, you’ll see they tend to share these values.
    1. They are anti-abortion.
    2. They are very supportive of the death penalty.•
    3. They oppose the separation of church and state.•
    4. They believe religious doctrine should be taught in school.•
    5. They tend to believe women should have fewer rights than men.•
    6. They oppose “multiculturalism”.•
    7. They consider homosexuality as evil and believe gay marriage should be outlawed.
    If President Obama really wanted to spread Islamic law in America, he’d be a Republican!

  8. You’ve lost a decade wailing about Obama the Communist Muslim narcissist dictator who was going to let the UN invade America and various hoaxes like “death panels,” birth certificates, Iraq’s WMDs, and the “Ground Zero Mosque” (remember how you wasted two years of your life over that?). Just think of what you could have accomplished if you hadn’t wasted all that time. You could have gotten a college degree, you could have written a book, you could have run your first marathon, you could have built a boat and sailed it around the world. You could learned to speak another language – oh wait, you never would have done that.

    Hatred is the fuel of fear, and for white conservatives their hatred of Obama masks the fear attached to the realization that their America is never coming back.

  9. Isn’t it about time we stopped the US VS THEM politics? which is what this article is about. Or would that not be in the best interest of who really controls the US government? You know, the Corporations, Unions, Special Interest, NonProfits, Rich Donors who pay for the elections. It’s time to stop all money in politics. It is the cancer that is destroying the US for quick monetary gain for those who fund the elections. What is need is Public Funded Elections with no outside money. Why? Because the US VS THEM culture would be replaced with a discussion about who has the best ideas for all the people, not the groups paying for the election. Then anyone could run for office. Not just those who have sold out to their donors who aren’t the voters. Or doesn’t it bother you over 3 billion dollars was spent on the last election?? What government has that been buying? One that doesn’t work, one that is destroying the Middle Class regardless of who gets elected.

  10. America,There is an old saying…”When people show you who they are believe them”. The Republicans have shown us for the last six years who they really are. Why won’t we believe them?

  11. what we need to do is vote, on elections and stop the madness. A bully will continue to pick on you until you pop him on the nose

  12. get knowledge, We Dems and Libs DO know what the Reich Wing is all about and exactly who the Republican/Conservatives are all about inside. It is the Repubs./Conservs. who either don’t know who they are or are too stupid or cowardly to admit how awful they are in every respect. They will never wake up to their horrible natures because ignorance and denial are in their DNA.

  13. The black man in the White House has been the greatest marketing tool/ploy/advantage in history for certain elements… sad, but an obvious play… to paraphrase a smarter man than I.. “no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the average American.” or the racism…
    We can only grin and bear it, and fight back where we can, secure in the knowledge that we are very lucky to have such a man in the White House, whether our fellow citizens see it or not.

  14. Obama willgo down inthe history as a great president. He made tremendous efforts to improve American image and to eradicate the hatred fortowards America by the wrong policies of Bush And injustice done to Iraq.

  15. These people are just being disrespectful and plain ugly now to our President. I was taught to be respectful to my President, believe in my Country, support my Constitution. I practiced this by giving 9 years of service to my country during other Tumultuous years (VietNam) when a bunch of other lies were being passed around and we in the Military had no support from the Politicians or the American Public when you came back. There is a huge threat which has been building up out there and we need to support what we are trying to do overseas before it gets more out of hand. These problems were landed on this Presidents desk when he took office, remnants of previous errors. I am for supporting the plan underway to continue supporting the so called Coalition we have going at present in the area so that we don’t have to send our kids over there to get maimed and killed again. Let them do it first. This is their fight. If that fails then we probably will still have to go in with our Military…

  16. Anyone writing positive things about Obama and his patriotism must give examples to illustrate their argument.

    To me, a heartless, mean-spirited Republican, Obama’s administration has made a great effort to destroy America – her heritage and culture by opening the doors to illegal immigration as well as to the inevitable deluge of individuals who will be granted entry to America because of the 1965 Democrat Hart-Cellar Immigration Bill – which places first and foremost the principal of family re-unification for granting entry visa. How about skills and ability to support yourself? Thank you Obama – goodbye America of our birth – hello to a Hispanicized America – and we all know how well the Hispanic culture has done for the people of Latin America. Yeah, they all want to come here. Are you with me yet? Or are you a congenital, brainless Democrat?

  17. ‘Scuse? You got a chronology problem? Barack Obama caused that bill to be passed when he was four years old? Remarkable man, then — and the burden of proof is on you to demonstrate that he isn’t!
