Obama is no good, whatever

(and not in a good way)                                      

The Stu Tarlowe and Skoonj machine offer this:

We've been awash of late in seemingly irresistible comparisons between Barack Obama and appeasement's poster boy, Neville Chamberlain, the man who in 1938 sold out Czechoslovakia to Hitler in order to preserve "peace in our time".
Here's a piece in today's American Thinker by Jeff Lipkes, which says, "Let's retire Neville Chamberlain's umbrella."
Lipkes is by no means the first to suggest that the Chamberlain/Obama comparisons are flawed (I've been among those pointing out the distinction between naiveté and evil intent). Nor is he the first to compare Obama to Andreas Lubitz, the suicide pilot/mass murderer of Germanwings Flight 9525 (see The Big Cheese, Friday, March 27, 2015).  Read the entire AT piece. But the first part of it is mere set-up, a bit of a history lesson. Here is the "money quote":
But let’s remember that Hitler never chanted “Death to Britain.”  Hitler had not organized terrorist attacks on British forces, nor were his proxies killing civilians across the world.  He did not proclaim that the annihilation of a British ally was “non-negotiable.”   And he was not a militant believer in a political religion whose followers had twice invaded and ravaged Europe, a religion whose followers today profess their disdain for Western values and Western culture.

Like Andreas Lubitz, the President knows what he’s doing.  He does not believe the Iranians, the world’s third greatest oil exporters, are interested in generating nuclear energy.  He does not believe the mullahs will fail to cheat on any agreement, or fail to use the revenue flowing in with the lifting of sanctions to fund global terrorism.  He does not believe that there will be much will to re-impose sanctions on the part of countries profiting from trade with Iran.

What the President is depressed about as he takes the country lower and lower is America’s arrogance and America’s role as a neo-colonialist exploiter.

The prospective agreement with Iran is not appeasement.  It’s suicide.

At least we have 85 days to break through the cockpit door, not 13 minutes. (Stu)

“If you mention Adolf Hitler or Nazis within a discussion thread, you’ve automatically ended whatever discussion you were taking part in.” The original Godwin
I'll go further than Jeff Lipke and say that the Obama/Chamberlain comparison is entirely baseless.  Yes, both were bad leaders, but at least Neville Chamberlain, like many Progressive leaders, had a "good heart."  He was however, like the others, just plain stupid.  Obama?  Let's sum up this way.

There are none among you who can say you ever heard about Godwin's Law until Obama came along. And when you did it had been modified to read “If you mention Adolf Hitler or Nazis within a discussion thread, you’ve automatically lost the argument”

That's because comparisons to the Obama administration and the Third Reich are so abundantly similar that they ought scare the hell out of even his Liberal backers, and certainly Hollywood
JINO.  Obamunists had that meme in their holster from day one for a reason. Even there, however, Lenin/Stalinist was probably the better comparison, but the media have since the 1920s ignored Communism, so Hitler has the better monster recognition.  Plus, Chamberlain wasn't born and educated in Berlin,  and he was a Christian.  Okay, like Obama he did also hold British  citizenship.

Perhaps Mussolini would be a better analogy. Dunno, I hadn't thought about it until now. Mussolini was a socialist turned fascist (probably for the cool uniforms, Roman Empire mythology, marketing). He was a rival but admired by Hitler (and the US Progressive movement). Mussolini was a colonialist wannabe, though. I don't see that as much of an objection, since Obama seems to want to remove our borders, but how does that differ from wanting to hold sway over those lands beyond our borders. Needs more thought, sorry.

DougM: "Mussolini was a socialist turned fascist"

Socialist and fascist are of the same blood. No need for a "turn".

I make the Mussolini connection every time I see Obama in his chin-thrust-upward-arms-folded (as if he's channelling Mussolini) pose. I also think of Obama as Mussolini every time I see a gas station; if only...

Caballero Andante - I think the same things. It's been a few years, but there used to be an Exxon (Esso) station not far from the Black House on M street.

Yeah, that was my point.
Re-reading the sentence, though,
I see I didn't quite make it.
Of course, I knew ahead of time
how it was s'post'a turn out.

(What? Oh, okay, from now on, I'll spend
more'n 5 min composing my thoughts.)

Soetoro is the Largest Fraud perpetrated on the Nation. Period. Toilet Paper thin Resume, Sealed Records and has wreaked total destruction on both Foreign and Domestic Policy, Alienated Allies and being an Economic Illiterate and a Racist has set the Nation back 100 years. Period. All of his Friends are tax cheats, traitors and America Haters.

His Iran Deal and Bergdahl trade further illustrates his imeptitude as a leader. The award of a Nobel Prize to this man degrades the value of Nobel Prizes. To be honest, Nobel should have stuck to making explosives and Soetoro should have stuck to being a Voter Fraud criminal in Chicago.

Re the above comment: the entire notion of rejecting the comparisons with Chamberlain is that the Iran and Bergdahl "deals" are NOT the result of "ineptitude"; Chamberlain may have been inept but Obama is calculating and is implementing an anti-American, anti-Western Civilization agenda.

Chamberlain didn't say Peace in our time. He said, "Peace for our time". Probably because of the media who are either lazy or ignorant. Hell they don't even correctly pronounce Liposuction or Mesothelioma. Idiots.

Hell, Bogie didn't say "Play it again, Sam" either. Armstrong didn't say "One small step for man…" History is full of misquotes.

But media whores don't correctly pronounce "liposuction" because they're preoccupied with "lip(s) o'suction".
