AND ALL OF THE OTHERS WHO REFUSE TO ADDRESS OBAMA’S ELIGIBILITY
by One Pissed-off Vietnam Vet
(Apr. 12, 2011) — The shame of it is, at one time she actually could’ve had a chance, but she’s burned too many bridges to be anything other than a discarded has-been, a sad case of waiting in the wings hoping beyond hope that the front-runners will stumble and fall and she’ll be resurrected as a Miss Liberty Phoenix. The truth is, she went down to Arizona and campaigned for the old geezer, the very same one who apologized for some announcer saying “Barack HUSSEIN Obama,” and then she kept quiet about the birth certificate while that’s all my wife and I talked about before the election in 2008.
I called one of the caucus members and asked her if she had any concerns about Obamas’ birth certificate in 2008, and she hung up on me. Now, two and a half years later, Sarah Palin may or may not jump on the “birther” bandwagon, now that it seems that it’s becoming a mainstream topic.
Too little and way, way too late, Sarah. Please don’t embarrass us by embarrassing yourself; just pack your bags and fade away forever, thank you. The American Dream was ready, able, and willing to embrace you, but you had to play politics, didn’t you? You had to play the game, but by playing the game you put yourself out of the game.
Oh, well, here today, gone tomorrow. It was fun while it lasted. Michele Bachmann is another one who could’ve, should’ve, but jumping on Donald Trump’s coattails is, as Palin, too little and way, way too late.
In a fire fight, when things go haywire in less than a heartbeat, you’ve got to take a stand; you’ve got to make a decision and follow it through, and you pray to God that you didn’t get anyone killed because you messed up. You have to keep thinking one, two, three steps ahead, all the time, and this jumping on the bandwagon to support the Constitution because it’s the flavor of the week just doesn’t cut it with this Vet, nohow, no way.
In my world, you step up to the plate and take a swing; that’s what’s expected and that’s exactly what you do. No shirking. No whining. No second chances in real life, and politics in America today is as real as it gets. We’re fighting for the life and the continuation of the Constitution and, by default, the meaning of the United States. There’s no room on the bus for those who weren’t in line, and Bachmann and Palin weren’t even at the station. And while we’re at it, we might as well add Romney and Huckabee.
