We have had two years to get to know Barack Hussein Obama. Below is a reminder of what kind of man we elected as president. Read the anecdote, think about what has happened in Washington and across America, and then listen to and watch the video of another man. What kind of America do you envision?
Recently President Obama called himself by the nickname ‘the gipper’. This was the name of Ronald Reagan, the man about whom Obama wrote in Dreams From My Father:
“Instead, I’d pronounce on the need for change. Change in the White House, where Reagan and his minions were carrying on their dirty deeds…”
Now read his recount of an event at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. This was told recently at White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs’ final press briefing.
“The most challenging problem was what tie to wear. And this went up to the very last minute. I mean, 10 minutes before we were about to go on stage we were still having an argument about ties. I had bought five, six ties. And Michelle didn’t like any of them, Axelrod didn’t like a couple of them — him being one of the best dressed men in the world. So we really valued his opinion.
“And then somebody — I don’t remember who it was — turned and said, ‘You know what? What about Gibbs’ tie? What about Gibbs’ tie? That might look good.’ And, frankly, Robert didn’t want to give it up because he thought he looked really good in the tie. But eventually he was willing to take one for the gipper, and so he took off his tie, and I put it on. And that’s the tie that I wore at the national convention.” Barack Obama
Now listen to Allen West, FL Congressional District 22. The rest of the speech is available on Youtube.
What kind of man do you want for your next president?
