“He, (The President) it seems is always stern, beset, frustrated and angry. It’s as if he expects the opposition to join him in whatever he wants to do for the simple reason that they should want to make his life easier. After all, he’s the president.
“Here’s how Barber describes the Active-Negative: “…relatively intense effort and relatively low emotional reward for that effort. The activity has a compulsive quality…His self-image is vague and discontinuous. Life is a hard struggle to achieve and hold power, hampered by the condemnations of a perfectionistic conscience. Active-negative types pour energy into the political system, but it is an energy distorted from within.”
“….If there is any merit in the Barber thesis, then there is plenty of room for concern about the rest of this president’s second term.”
The above was written in 2013 by Robert W. Merry, the political editor of The National Interest and the author of books on American history and foreign policy. His most recent book is Where They Stand: The American Presidents in the Eyes of Voters and Historians.”
The man is troubled and so should we be.
. This from FOX News, Tucker Carlton: “For [President Obama] to embrace Sharpton,” Carlson opined, “Who is just an open bigot and a criminal and a tax cheat, who’s been whipping up race hatred in New York for all these decades. For the president of the United States to embrace this guy as a personal friend, an adviser, to show up at the NAN meetings, to have him in the White House again, and again, and again, and again, to endorse his message — boy, no wonder you’ve got craziness going on in the streets.”
We would add: It’s not just in the streets. Many say it’s in the White House.
Ed Kline, Capitalism Magazine wrote: “Columnist Michelle Malkin touches on Sharpton’s criminal past in her October 19th, 2009 column, “Yes, let’s talk about Al Sharpton’s racial demagoguery, shall we?” in which she all too briefly describes Sharpton’s Tawana Brawley hoax in 1987, his provoking anti-Semitic riots in Brooklyn in 1995, and his fatal Freddy’s Fashion Mart adventure in Harlem in 1995.
“Al Sharpton is just one “poster child” among many Progressive radicals dedicated to stirring up racial conflict and overall social turmoil. He is the spawn of moral relativism, who, in an age of reason, would not have a chance to rise above his mean malevolence to attain anything more than the obscure notoriety of a loud-mouthed bigot.
“In a civilized society, his basic nasty character would get him into barroom fights and more often than not deservedly have the crap beat out of him, either by a “cracker” (his favorite term for whites) or by a “brother” who also would have had enough of his mouth.”
Al Sharpton is at least an advisor to Obama, one of the worst things ever to have happened to America. Shame on those who supported him and still do. Based on the past six years America is in trouble. Because America is in trouble it bodes ill for the rest of the civilized world.
