"I don't care, Obama is awesome" (UPDATED)

A simulated water cooler conversation with an Obama supporter.  Any similarities to leftists near you, especially religious progressives, are intentional and deliberate:

H/T American Digest.

UPDATE: Remember the Religious Leftist who wanted to see Sarah Palin jailed over the Tucson shootings?  She is once again waxing eloquent over at the Desperate Preacher's site... and given her words, we may very well have found who the blonde in the video was modeled after:

I don't think that Iraq was constitutional, nor is Libya, and that troubles me. . . greatly. The difference however is that Iraq was started by a lie. (Chemical weapons), and with the excuse of 9/11, when Iraq never had anything to do with 9/11.Osama Bin Ladin was never in Iraq. Saudi Arabia had everything to do with it and yet we do nothing, except allow them to fleece us by continually raising the oil prices. Why is that? At least Libya was proven that Gaddafi was killing his own people, and not responding to sanctions, promising to continue. And France went in First. (Now, there's a first!)

Never mind the many UN sanctions preceding the Iraqi invasion, never mind that the coalition put together by Bush was far greater in number than Obama's Libyan coalition, never mind that Congress voted to support action by Bush and that Obama ignored Congress seeking instead to notify and gain approval from the UN... never mind all that because... hey... Obama is awesome:

... Barack Obama would have been damned if he didn't go in, and he is damned because he did. There are many who do look at him that he cannot do anything right. He has been criticized for his trip to Latin America to try to get more business, and more JOBS. He can make decisions just as easy from there as he can The Oval Office. He is trying to move the country out of the huge Budget deficit, that he INHERITED. We are moving in the right direction, but we still need to move a lot more.

The only ideas the Republicans have come up with of late is to fleece the public schools of all funding, call teachers greedy, give tax breaks to the top 1% of wealthy in this country, and end collective bargaining. Everything AGAINST the Middle class and the poor. and everything for their cronies. Whatever happened to Boehner's statement that they would be "relentless about creating jobs?" What have they done?? NADA! ZIPPO! NOTHING!! I

I am sorry but I do believe a lot of the comments that have been made against Obama are racially motivated. There are so many things that are not only false, but irrational. And there is still a lot of racism in this country, unfortunately so. Obama is not a Marxist or a Nazi. (You cannot be both at the same time anyway,) He is a centrist. Much to the shagrin of many of his liberal supporters who voted him into office. When that argument doesn't work, then he wasn't born in the US. Or he's Muslim. . . all of it BS. What they aren't saying is 'There is a black man in the big house." The same arguments were used against Martin Luther King when he attempted to fight for Civil Rights, peacefully.

Most of all, I think there is a huge propaganda machine that fills people full of all kinds of misinformation about what is happening, and who Obama is, or isn't, with the expressed purpose of filling people with fear. And it is working. It is tragic. Unnecessarily tragic.

The blindness and shallowness exhibited mirrors the video perfectly does it not?  I'm not sure that one can be any more ignorant of reality or facts.

It's quite embarrassing really... there's no other way to describe it.

But hey, that Obama sure is awesome...

To Rick and his ilk it is simple. When reality doesn't match the bullshit lies you're spreading - just make up a new reality.

The rubes don't know the difference. They'll hate Obammy animated just as much as they hate him in real life. Heck, he's still black ain't he? And still a muslim born in Kenya?!?!

I think they will all agree that "obama is AWESOME!"

Seriously, the funny thing about this is that the left really cannot see their own hypocrisy. You can spout historical facts to the left day and night and they still will not be able to see that obama is everything they accused Bush of but even more so, because to think badly of obama would be RACIST. They can't see beyond the color of his skin.

No WMDs? Perhaps not as many as feared, but it is a matter of record that they had been used against internal rebels. They may have been destroyed, or never as plentiful as the Hussein government indicated.

While this woman is severely divorced from reality, at least one small part of her commentary is neither nuts nor inaccurate, and is, indeed, still worth asking:

Saudi Arabia had everything to do with it and yet we do nothing, except allow them to fleece us by continually raising the oil prices. Why is that?

I've been asking that one myself for years now. Maybe she just dropped it in there by accident.

Of course, I've been asking the same thing about Iran and Syria, too....

As I see it, there are two ... (Below threshold)

As I see it, there are two primary motivators that drive the vast majority of Obamaphiles like this ... just as they drove the vast majority of those in the anti-war marches during the GWB years:

1> The desire to have some authority give them "what they deserve" by taking stuff away from those they consider "undeserving" ... as opposed to doing the long/hard work needed to attain that stuff by their own merits.

2> The fear that someone might harsh their mellow by criticizing their recreational/lifestyle choices ... and have that credibility considered credible by their fellow citizens.

Combine those motivators with the idea that ends-justify-the-means relativism is a feature, not a bug, in one's worldview ... and the idea that academic credentials and/or a "non-profit" status makes one inherently more noble than the rest of humanity ... and the simplistic assertions of Mr. Obama's awesomeness is what you get.

It is more about denigrating the conservative worldview BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, than it is about the merits of this President ... or the desire for peace ... because it is the conservative worldview that is their Main Enemy; their very concept of self-worth is threatened by its mere existence, because it recognizes objective reality over their wishful thinking and soft, cuddly greed.

Tommy:

People, it is not that complicated.

Women vote how they feeeeel..... and they are hardwired to go with their social group. This is how they survived in prehistoric times, by conforming to the group.

A society that allows women to vote goes downhill after 100 years. If you disagree, check on the status of the USS in 2019....

Interestingly, according to the OED, "awe" originally meant immediate fear, terror, dread! But the earliest cite of "awesome" had a more modern sense of inspiring adoration tinged with fear!

So they're right about Obama, but in a way different from they meant. Isn't that awesome?

Woop's troll post is really... (Below threshold)
hitnrun:

Woop's troll post is really the best example of how bad it's getting for Obamaphiles. It's been so hard-wired into leftists for decades now to attribute hard truths to "right wing lies" that saying "right wing," "lies," and in bleak times, "bullshit," has become an instinctive defense, a reflex.

But the funny thing is, Rich does, not in fact, make any assertions at all, lies or otherwise. He simply lets the willful ignorance and mindless adulation speak for itself. Therefore, calling him a "right wing liar" is essentially saying "Obamaphiles aren't as stupid as the evidence I've just read suggests."

Don't forget Saddam Hussien... (Below threshold)

Don't forget Saddam Hussien killed plenty of his own people too, including gassing them.
