Are Democrats jealous of Barack Obama?

Are Democrats jealous of Barack Obama? One might conclude that upon reading this headline from FoxNews.com:

“Obamas under fire from the left for never ending, sizzling ultra-luxury vacations”

From FoxNews.com:

“The Democratic base is growing increasingly frustrated with former President Barack Obama’s actions after leaving office, including a seemingly endless tour of millionaire and billionaire luxury retreats, according to Democrats and activists contacted by Fox News.”

…and…

“Left-wing activists told Fox News they are troubled by what they see as a trend by Obama to distance himself from the base of the party. It’s not just vacations. The president also has enjoyed hefty fees for speeches to prominent Wall Street firms. It’s all part of a trend, they say, of Obama trying to join the fabled 1 percent.”

I would like for liberals and Democrats to explain just what Barack Obama has done after leaving the White House that is illegal or immoral.

As long as Obama is living high on the hog through honest means, there is no good reason for complaining about him doing so.

Egads! Barack Obama is now a private citizen and is free to do what he wants with his retirement as long as it is legal. Even conservatives and Republicans can figure that out.

If liberals and Democrats are going to complain about other liberals and Democrats living high on the hog, then the former need to start by complaining about the lifestyles of the rich Democrat celebrities.

Seriously, it is nutty for liberals and Democrats to complain about Barack Obama’s current lifestyle.

And speaking of nutty, check out this other headline from FoxNews.com.

The Confederate flag referred to was originally raised by the late restaurateur Maurice Bessinger.

From FoxNews.com:

“During his life, Bessinger was critical of the Civil Rights Act and called Brown v. Board of Education — the 1954 Supreme Court case that ended race-based segregation in American public and private schools — a “really bad” decision.

“I raised the flag out here on the flagpole to protest the taking down of our heritage flag,” Bessinger said in 2000.

Bessinger died in 2014, but wrote that the flags that fly outside of his establishments “will stay.”

“I will fight on because this is what God wants me to do,” he added.”

I don’t know which god that Bessinger was referring to, but he definitely was not referring to the God of Christianity.

More from FoxNews.com:

“Before his death, Bessinger sold the small section of land that surrounds the flagpole to the Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 842.

“And we’ve been trying ever since to … honor the Confederate soldier,” Buzz Braxton, commander and member of the group, said. “He put it in the hands of people that he trusted because he loved his Confederate ancestors and his Confederate history just like we do. So, there was nothing sinister.””

There was nothing sinister? Except for acts of violence, all of the left-wing lunacy in the world pales in comparison to the lunacy that is the ongoing cult of the Confederacy. What members of that cult are saying is this:

I am proud of the fact that my Confederate ancestors declared war against the USA, killed members of the U.S. Army and tried to keep black Americans enslaved. I am also proud of the fact that, after the Civil War ended, my ancestors did all they could to prevent black Americans from having the same rights as white Americans.

Folks, everything stated above in italics is just what the Confederate flag stands for.

Sure, there are ignorant individuals who don’t understand that and who display the Confederate flag. Then there are those who do understand and still display the Confederate flag.

Someone might say, “Robertson, how dare you criticize those who display the Confederate flag! Those people tend to support conservative and Republican causes.” Well, their support of conservative and Republican causes doesn’t mitigate the evil that the Confederate flag stands for. The cult of the Confederacy has become a cancer on the Republican-Party body. If conservative and Republican pundits aren’t going to attack that cancer, then I will.

    “Robertson, how dare you criticize those who display the Confederate flag! Those people tend to support conservative and Republican causes.””

    I have seen more redneck liberals flying the stars and bars then republicans. But then I am from the south originally.

    Geez stop with the cheezy “look at the evil republicans that fly the confederate flags” mime. You shot any credibility you had in the thread with that one simple statement.

    Here is some edumacation for you David from us dumb repubacans who dont know no betta.

    David mentions God and the confederate flag to bash republicans but umm doesnt seem to mention liberals who destroy the 10 commandments and govt property.

    And Robertson shows his ignorance of the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia.

    “Folks, everything stated above in italics is just what the Confederate flag stands for.”
    Please cite your sources for the italicized tripe or retract it immediately.
    I believe you are quite incorrect in that craptastic statement. It is quite obvious that Robertson has also showed his true side of ignorant progressivism.

  • Barry who? We should care why?

    • Retired military

      Funny how a thread mentioning Democrats and Obama seems to end with bashing republicans doesn’t it.

  • Vagabond661

    Your damned ignorance and bias is not history. However, it does reveal, once again, why you have no qualifications contributing here or anywhere for that matter.

    David seems to froget Sheets Byrd (but I am sure he will bring up David Duke)

    Here you go David.

  • Brett Buck

    No, they are just trying to resolve their delusions about how he is some paragon of leftist virtue virtue with the reality of his .001%’er lifestyle.

    Maybe they’re also wondering how he went in to the office that pays $400,000 dollars a year and came out obscenely wealthy.

    • Jwb10001

      This is the problem with these people, the only good rich people are those that get rich in public office or support the wealth stealers. See Bernie Sanders (hypocrite party) Liz Warren (foreclosed house flipper party) BHO (life styles of the rich and famous party.) Warren Buffet with no sense of irony says too few people have too much of the money (2ond richest phony in the world.)

      • WHO’S THE BUSTER

        I don’t know why wealthy Democrats are expected to divest themselves of all possessions.

        However, Buffet and Gates, among others, are giving away half of their wealth to charities. I am sure Trump has, and will, do the same.

        • Brett Buck

          They aren’t and wealth is not a crime or a miral failing. They aren’t and wealth is not a crime or a moral failing. It’s just that the idiot Obama worshippers *think* it is, and thus can’t grasp the concept that such a model of virtue is so vulgar and ostentatious about it. He spent his entire political career railing against people – like himself!

          Of course, the rest of us are curious how a man who *never held a real job in his life* and has shown nothing but contempt for capitalism has mysteriously parleyed a series of moderately-paid government jobs into such an astronomical fortune.

          The conclusion from either perspective is that he is a phony and a fraud who has exploited the system to get what he wants without working for it.

            Brett, I recommend either the AdBlock that Rodney uses or Adguard (the one I use). It makes navigating Wizbang much more bearable.

        • Bernie (Red Diapers Full of Free Shit) Sanders amassed his wealth as a public servant.

          In a Capitalist system the Rich become Powerful. In a Socialist System the Powerful become Rich.

          Our heartburn is with those who prosper from the Socialist path.

        • Jwb10001

          The money isn’t the problem it’s the hypocrisy. I don’t care what Buffet and Gates do with their money. Unlike liberals that seem to think money belongs to the government to spread around as they see fit, of course after they get their cut.

    Regarding Barack “Insane” 0bama:

    Why is anyone surprised by his vacation lifestyle?
    It’s just his narcissism on display.

  • jim_m

    Amazing how David knows explicitly the mind and intentions of God.

    Tell us , oh great asshat, exactly what happens on earth that an omnipotent God is not capable of turning to serve His purposes? Show us how you are so certain that all the acts that you dislike are necessarily all tools of Satan.

    It’s hyper-pious, hypocritical douchebags like you that drive people out of the church.

  • pennywit

    Confederate flag and ex-presidential vacations don’t seem to belong in a single blog post.

    • jim_m

      Idk. Obama is at least as racist as any klan member.

  • pennywit

    Random thought: Do you think somewhere there is some anal-retentive Confederate type who insists on flying the REAL Stars and Bars and gets incensed when other people call the Confederate battle flag the Stars and Bars?

    • Without a doubt.

      • Retired military

        And I would bet that most of them are democrats

  • Wild_Willie

    I have no dog in this hunt. I do know there was a civil war. Based mainly on slavery but almost equal to that issue is states rights and federalism based on the constitution which acknowledged slavery. Also, slavery didn’t refer to any race but it was mainly black.

    There are two issues here and both Robertson either missed or is ignorant of concerning this flag. One is the 1st amendment. We should always be mindful of our rights whether most like it or not. The second is just as important. History. There is only one recent leader who made an effort to change their history by getting rid of some parts of the past. Hitler.

    Now David, are you against the flag OR history and the constitution? It can’t be both. ww

    • Retired military

      David was too busy trying to fit republican bashing into this thread to care about history or issues.
