The Cowardice of Deception..

what I said was - graphic 1

According to Webster: “cow·ard·ice,” Ignoble fear in the face of danger.

“Maybe the critics are right. Maybe there’s no escaping our great political divide, an endless clash of armies, and any attempts to alter the rules of engagement are futile.

Or maybe the trivialization of politics has reached a point of no return, so that most people see it as just one more diversion, a sport, with politicians our paunch-bellied gladiators and those who bother to pay attention just fans on the sidelines:

We paint our faces red or blue and cheer our side and boo their side, and if it takes a late hit or cheap shot to beat the other team, so be it, for winning is all that matters.

But I don’t think so. They are out there, I think to myself, those ordinary citizens who have grown up in the midst of all the political and cultural battles, but who have found a way-in their own lives, at least- to make peace with their neighbors, and themselves.

…I imagine they are waiting for a politics with the maturity to balance idealism and realism, to distinguish between what can and cannot be compromised, to admit the possibility that the other side might sometimes have a point.

They don’t always understand the arguments between right and left, conservative and liberal, but they recognize the difference between dogma and common sense, …

..responsibility and irresponsibility, between those things that last and those that are fleeting.

They are out there, waiting for Republicans and Democrats to catch up with them.”

Source – Barack Obama’s, The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.

Of course, as I am one of the thousands of individuals in this country that subscribes to the “supposition” that the thoughts and (words) scribed above were written by “William Charles Ayres,” not Barack Obama – the (ghost written) words above are simply (one more example) of “our” current Commander-in-Chief’s lack of character.

Another interesting quote…

“another tradition to politics, a tradition (of politics) that stretched from the days of the country’s founding to the glory of the civil rights movement, a tradition based on the simple idea that we have a stake in one another, and that what binds us together is greater than what drives us apart, and that if enough people believe in the truth of that proposition and act on it, then we might not solve every problem, but we can get something meaningful done.” (Again from; “The Audacity of Hope.”)

Let’s take a closer look…

“..from the days of the country’s founding (without a coma) to the glory days of the civil rights movement, …

In my view, (anyone with the capacity to ponder), might very well “interpret” that passage as giving (more credence) to the “glory days” of (the civil rights movement), than the founding of our nation?

Followed immediately by; “..a tradition based on the simple idea that we have a stake in one another,” …

As a senior citizen on Social Security and Medicare who’s had his insurance deductible raised from $300 a year, – to $1100 a year – due to the implementation of Obamacare, I have no problem identifying Obama’s “stake” in my life.

Followed by…

..and that what “binds us together is greater than what drives us apart,” …

..and that (if enough people believe) in (the truth of that proposition) and act on it, then we might not solve every problem, but we can get something (meaningful) done.”

Editorial:  As an individual who understands words and the reason why words are placed in the order that they are placed  – the meaning of a “word” or a “sentence” can change (expediently) depending upon the order in which words are placed.  Accordingly, my inquiry is concerned with (why) with Barack Obama’s track record of misinformation and lying, (why), would anyone with common sense (believe) anything that came out of his mouth, or out of his box of Crayola’s?

According to Webster: “ex·pe“di·ent·ly.” Serving to promote one’s interest.
