Presented as a stark contrast to the many fawning songs about Obama done in 2008.
Got a link to any fawning song?
I think maybe that Obama Girl had a few ditties.
Really?..you never saw the Will I. Am song? Or the little kids in the school room produced by some Hollywood director? Who are you kidding?
Yep, I recalled the nursery school song. didn’t see the others.
Obama Girl was all about Obama Girl trying to scam a living, get her own 15 minutes of Fame. I was even surprised beyond interviews with her about her and how much SHE loved Obama, there was no Democratic Party/Obama use of her.
The school class song was a story about how stupid the bureaucracy of the school was, or maybe just the teacher?–or was it a class vote? Again–the powers that you are trying to malign ignored it.
I missed Will I Am–he’s a rap singer? Black guy praising the first half black president, hoping for change? Again–I didn’t see anyone in a governmental position refer to the song/rapper/or ideas presented.
So, what are we left with? ……….. Pop Culture. Singing about the President with no relevant point at all.
Shouldn’t political analysis be just a little bit deeper? Yeah, I know…. good enough for the teapublicans…. but c’mon.
Lots of relevant substantive criticisms to be made against Obama. The one that is sticking for instance?: overly optimistic/naive about how seriously injured the economy was after the Bush/Clinton reforms and Bank Fraud and therefore how long the recovery would take? Dumb enough to state hard targets and that he would be a one term Pres if not corrected?
THAT was way stupid. Good thing we have Romney to run against him.
Failure to prosecute the Massive Wall Street Fraud?
there’s two……. but who am I trying to kid?
KJV Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! (Isa 14:12 KJV)
From “we are the ones we have been waiting for”…to a lobbyist infested White House….
1 Tim. 2:9-14 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
1 Cor. 14:34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
I can quote Bible verses too.
I’m sure I agree with the sentiment, but I barely made it through 2 minutes of watching this drivel…
Neither Omama nor Mittenz is worth commenting on. Moving on…
That’s clever and smart. Maybe these two or who ever created this video should run for Congress.
Let’s face it. Reid and Romney are the same guy. Never drank, Never paid taxes, and never cared about anyone that is not LDS (Mormon).
Could never understand this video because they are culturally impaired.
Running a Morman is the same as running an Eskimo or Indian for president.
We can expect to see serious anti-Mormon bigotry the closer we get. Good start.
I have two friends that are Morman, and they are the most dependable and down to earth of all my friends.
Where does the line get drawn for what a person has to say yes to, and what a person can say no to?
I’m not a anti-mormon bigot. Having to deal with Romney’s culture daily is not fun.
Utah is a theocracy and expect the same level of lobbying from the “city pool closed on Sundays” group if he wins.
You talk about screwing families… he golf course is open, but not the pools? We have a bond on those pools and the entrance fees pay the bond. Closing it 1 day a week adds to our taxes.
The good news is that Drinking and Driving is almost impossible.
Explain to me how closing the pool increases your taxes? If the existing entrance fees are enough to pay the bond, then opening it for an extra day, generates surplus fees, while racking up more tax expenses to pay the staff.
Lyrics say, “In 2012 I need Obama that I use to know.”
Why? What’s he done? You want more jive talk?
Obama brought us ObamaCare. Not the single payer he wants and will ultimately achieve. The resistance of the brain dead Republican Base must first be overcome. Romney is doing the best he can on that front.
Imagine anyone not criminally insane admitting they are going to vote for Romney?
Ha, ha. No tax paying fool==wants to be given the Office cause he’s a Job Creator.
Who believes that…… even he doesn’t.
OK..let’s cut to the chase:
I stopped 30 secs in at “a Muslim vs a Mormon.” I don’t mind walking and talking with god until god starts talking shit and fanning race/religious wars or whatever is up this guys shorts.
You listen to crazy people, hard not to get crazy yourself. (STFU Pedro!)
HAR! Bobbo talking about crazy people. The irony made me laugh.
True – the Troll is at it again…..
Manning has one of the very best over the air voices I have ever heard. It’s emotional, invigorating, and effortless.
Just put yourself in his place at minute 10 and just try to be 1/10th as good.
This video proves that any dumbass with a Bible and a God complex can make a video and scream a lot.
Post-modern racism. That’s funny.
I could not follow his line of reasoning because there is none.
Good..I thought it was just me.
I believe that the man in the video was attempting to state that people today are still racist, but they search out other reasons to publicly state why they don’t like a person or group of people instead of just owning up to their racism.
If that is what you understood, he failed in his attempt.
No, he’s claiming to be something like a prophet…
And that Moromonism is from the pit of hell, and just as bad as Islam…so nothing gained by voting for either…and that whites are as willing to ignore obvious warning signs about Romney as blacks were about Obama…
In the context of a coming Antichrist, what he says could, along with a thousand other variations, be made to fit.
I disagree with him, but understand what he is saying…cause the evangelical Christian context is required to know what he is getting at. He’s not trying to explain himself to secular folks and isn’t talking about racism at all.
His basic thrust about Romney could be right on….Romney declined standing with Chick Fil-A….that is, declined defending the 1st amendment… what a guy…
I got photos of Romney in the mail…is this the third world, should I post them over the door?
Mormonism isn’t Christian according to Nicea…and for many, that means its not Christian, period.
Most are ignoring that, for fear of Obama…Just like Manning says.
As for the rest of Mannings statements, I tuned them out, don’t know what they are and its likely I don’t agree.
But he’s right on about Conservatives swallowing hard…
I’m supporting conservative Senators and Congressmen with money…Romney has enough….hopefully these will keep whoever is president…from becoming “our Dear Leader”
What is the Biblical definition of marriage?
I can’t seem to find the definition.
Matthew 19:5 “and said,`For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh ‘? (Mat 19:5 NKJ)
Its Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.
Why aren’t civil unions enough for you…or why don’t you make up your own word for the gay unions you desire…why must you steal our word pervert its meaning?
Can’t you make up one of your own?
I got on for you,
Sodrimony is why Steve crossed the road when Adam did
What about this definition?
If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father.
Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.
Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT
Do we follow this definition also?
What about this one:
Thus says the Lord: ‘I will bring evil upon you out of your own house. I will take your wives [plural] while you live to see it, and will give them to your neighbor.
He shall lie with your wives in broad daylight. You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down.’
2 Samuel 12:11-14 NAB
That was the Lord himself speaking.
Then there is this one:
“When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house. But before she may live there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive’s garb. After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you may have relations with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife.
However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion.”
Deuteronomy 21:10-14 NAB
What if a man has two wives?
If a man have two wives, one beloved, and another hated, and they have born him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the firstborn son be hers that was hated:
Then it shall be, when he maketh his sons to inherit that which he hath, that he may not make the son of the beloved firstborn before the son of the hated, which is indeed the firstborn:
But he shall acknowledge the son of the hated for the firstborn, by giving him a double portion of all that he hath: for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his.
The brother-in-law rule:
If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband’s brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband’s brother unto her.
There are many definitions of marriage in the Bible. I guess we can pick the one we like best.
Orchidcuppy, your argument is confused…I don’t see the basic meaning of marriage being between same sex individuals in any of those texts…
So none of them countenance your grabbing your ankles up and down the daisy chain…
Bent over in the moonlight in some nameless park…
To clarify, his basic idea…stripped of its religious content where a anti (instead of Christ) betrays his followers and becomes the “anti (against) Christ” could be right if…
IF The establishment candidate Romney continues in the Bush big government (Democrat light) mode so the political class gets rich, and the country goes to hell.
That’s what conservatives fear….that Romney is not conservative enough….
He pull a Boehner.
So in that sense, stripped of all the religious symbol he infused into it, he might have a point.
Romney declined to defend the first amendment vis a vis Chick Fil-A….just like a good Democrat would.
While it proved your point about anti Mormon bigotry….most compartmentalize Romney’s Mormonism and so ignore it.
We aren’t voting for a Mormon prophet, we are voting for a President.
I think the left is more bigoted against his religion, and the right is.
But as Manning shows, there are religious people who won’t vote for a Mormon.
I voted for him against McCain…and certainly will do so again against Obama.
That is something I thought I could never do, just 10 years ago.
I think the left is more bigoted against his religion THAN the right is.
I am inclined to believe that a religion that was invented from whole cloth by Joseph Smith in the mid-nineteenth century is laughed at by anyone who understands the origins of Mormonism.
Mormonism isn’t the issue, if it were Romney would not get my vote.
I think it a stretch Romney is like Obama, would subvert the constitution like Obama is doing.
Its possible Romney might excel as President, instead of etch o sketch away conservative principles once in office—as seems to be the custom of the establishment Republicans, he’ll flip towards them….and actually do what the country needs.
Slash government like Ron Paul says, roll back all the regulations holding business back…
We can hope.
Start at 8:17.
Black people are black… Huh?
Sheriff Joe, The Donald and Newsmax wont give power to the truth about Obama. I watched the whole rant, The MADDING report. Thanks John, I enjoyed that tangent and insanity.
Its’s MADDENING. ha.
Heartwarming to see Republicans keeping up with electricity.
Showing a wider audience how to be losers.
I wonder how much the RNC paid for the right to ruin this song.
Obama said he wasn’t interested in playing the game better, but that he wanted to change the game, complaining about getting millions of dollars in speaking fees and lobbying contracts.
Then he let lobbyists in , and David Plouffe collected double his $50,000 speaking fee from a company doing business with Iran.
Those speaking fees politico’s make is a scandal, money laundering. If we had a press that really informed the public, the practice would have ended decades ago.
And yea, the Chicago thug is as crooked as his association with Tony Rezko made him appear.
Funny, I dedicated the video to two FB friends last week who supported Shit-Fil-A during Huckabee’s bigot appreciation day.
One had the gall to ask me for a professional recommendation a few days later. …. Pahhleez. They’re both Shit-Fil-Aholes in my book.
Your fetish is showing
He’s just upset at the “kiss-in” turnout.
I believe I can honestly say that this post and insightful observations about it have enhanced may understanding.
Hey Alfie–I couldn’t figure out where to post my response, so I do it here.
Best Bible Explanation for Marriage argument I have read. Quite rational and on point and succinct within that context.
Couple of years ago, I had the same issues regarding keeping the language intact, but why should that one word be carved in stone (sic) when everything else evolves?
In the end, I think the simple fact that any two other people getting *married* does nothing to the marriages of hetero’s moved me to become agnostic. Let Democracy Win—as when a bunch of Utah money floods into the State of California when the issue is on our ballot. How come “Thou shalt not influence elections outside your State Boundaries.” is not the Eleventh Commandment in the Book of Mormon? Id say either God isn’t thinking ahead, or he just doesn’t care.
Sad, when god doesn’t care.
Words do evolve, but usually not by fiat. Progressives are adept at overturning elections via the courts…here in California, everything the people vote for, gets overturned eventually…so its tyranny by the judiciary.
When that happens to” marriage”, and it will…Christians will invent a new term for heterosexual marriage, and translate their Bibles accordingly.
So you are a Federalist, believe in state rights? That contradicts everything you said about Obama Tax, the “sic the IRS on America” health insurance law that penalizes even those laid off, if they don’t get health insurance…
I admit I’ll be LOL when Obama supporters meet their new Overseers, the IRS, and squeal like stuck pigs as they dig deep to pay…”we didn’t know THAT’s what Obama meant by health care…”
Federalism is a balance between state and fed rights/powers. It doesn’t traditionally address one State interfering in the activities of another state==especially on political matters as Utah did in California regarding the terms of our State Constitution re Marriage. Pretty ballsy of the Mormon Church/Utah Gov? to do that. Shows how interested they are in the subject===its not enough to be free ourselves, we require everyone else to comply as well. Typical religious types, aping their god as the good books instruct.
But you were pretty close. Close enough. Exercising the full range of your abilities Alfie?
Mind the gap.
Why are the college records, of a 51-year-old President of the United States, so important to keep secret? I think I know the answer.
If anyone should have questions about Obama’s record at Columbia University, it’s me. We both graduated (according to Obama) Columbia University, Class of ’83. We were both (according to Obama) Pre-Law and Political Science majors. And I thought I knew most everyone at Columbia. I certainly thought I’d heard of all of my fellow Political Science majors. But not Obama (or as he was known then- Barry Soetoro). I never met him. Never saw him. Never even heard of him. And none of the classmates that I knew at Columbia have ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.
But don’t take my word for it. The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Fox News randomly called 400 of our Columbia classmates and never found one who had ever met Obama.
Now all of this mystery could be easily and instantly dismissed if Obama released his Columbia transcripts to the media. But even after serving as President for 3 1/2 years he refuses to unseal his college records. Shouldn’t the media be as relentless in pursuit of Obama’s records as Romney’s? Shouldn’t they be digging into Obama’s past–beyond what he has written about himself–with the same boundless enthusiasm as Mitt’s?
The first question I’d ask is, if you had great grades, why would you seal your records? So let’s assume Obama got poor grades. Why not release the records? He’s president of the free world, for gosh sakes. He’s commander-in-chief of the U.S. military. Who’d care about some poor grades from three decades ago, right? So then what’s the problem? Doesn’t that make the media suspicious? Something doesn’t add up.
Secondly, if he had poor grades at Occidental, how did he get admitted to an Ivy League university in the first place? And if his grades at Columbia were awful, how’d he ever get into Harvard Law School? So again those grades must have been great, right? So why spend millions to keep them sealed?
Third, how did Obama pay for all these fancy schools without coming from a wealthy background? If he had student loans or scholarships, would he not have to maintain good grades?
I can only think of one answer that would explain this mystery.
Here’s my gut belief: Obama got a leg up by being admitted to both Occidental and Columbia as a foreign exchange student. He was raised as a young boy in Indonesia. But did his mother ever change him back to a U.S. citizen? When he returned to live with his grandparents in Hawaii or as he neared college-age preparing to apply to schools, did he ever change his citizenship back? I’m betting not.
If you could unseal Obama’s Columbia University records I believe you’d find that:
A) He rarely ever attended class.
B) His grades were not those typical of what we understand it takes to get into Harvard Law School.
C) He attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student.
D) He paid little for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships given to a poor foreign students like this kid Barry Soetoro from Indonesia.
If you think I’m “fishing” then prove me wrong. Open up your records Mr. President. What are you afraid of?
Why doesn’t Romney do this? We’re back to Manning’s premise, he may not be as anti Big government as he pretends to be.
When running against Republicans, Romney was quick to accuse them of all sorts of evil, not caring if this angered their Republican supporters at all.
But he seems very deferential to Obama, perhaps because he intends on working with Obama’s people after the election?
Life is a bitch when the whole world is conspiring against you and nobody cares to spend the time to analyze your conspiracy rant.
Please don’t go postal on us and start shooting like the skinhead in Wisconsin.
Be kind to people and understand not everyone sees the world through your lens.
If you can’t get the world to see the truth you perceive, then chalk it up to apathy and indifference and find something constructive to do like everybody else.
Seems that white people are more disappointed in Obama than black people are.
Makes you wonder exactly what the white voter was expecting in the first place?
So, two 20-somethings woke up.
What makes it news is that it’s so unusual.
Or has Obama brought cynicism and despair to a whole new generation?
Maybe we weren’t ready for an MKUltra Manchurian candidate from Kenya.
Speaking of the CIA, Romney was endorsed by Bush….
Hipsters always tire of something thats older than 6 months. 4 years is an eternity for the knit-cap neckbeard white 20-somethings. No wonder they’re tired of Obama, they’ve already changed their favorite latte 5 times over his presidency.
