Obama takes the high moral and ethical ground......
Isn't it fascinating to watch the way Obama's handlers will stoop to any depth to shore up the crumbling edifice of "change" and "hope" that is the saintly Obama's public persona?
One is reminded of the vomit-inducing "Christianity" and churchgoing of that servant of the devil, Tony Blair. One Sunday bowing his head in reverence to the "lord almighty", the next dispatching his killers to the fields of death in Afghanistan and then Iraq.
He used to pose on the steps of No 10 Downing Street cuddling his children, and in the next breath send his bombers in to murder someone else's.
Spoonful of hypocrisy , anyone?
Apparently, and with the same level of hypocrisy, Obama has a picture of Ghandi on his wall and claims that Ghandi and Martin Luther King are major influences on his personal philosophy.
Politicians are such bastards, aren't they?
They raise their glasses in a toast to the evil scum that have gifted them their power, drink deep from their brimming cups of babies' blood, wipe their mouths with cloth soaked in the tears of mothers, fan their brows with the hot wind that is the anger of bereft fathers, pat each other on the back and smirk smarmily at each other as our planet is raped and their misguided missiles and misled soldiers bring more misery and death to innocents and more hatred into the world.
Then they say how much Mother Theresa has influenced their outlook.
This Obama thing, this lackey and lickspittle, this abomination, this murderer, this torturer, this denier of justice, this fugitive from all that is good and right and dutiful, this play actor and ham reader of prompts, this excuse for a President, this war criminal, this aider and abetter of the great banking heist that has stolen the future from Americans and so many others around the world, this mockery of a human being has the gall, the effrontery, the bare-faced cheek to liken himself to Ghandi and to Martin Luther King!
He is not, of course, fit to be on the same bus with Martin Luther King.
Ghandi would have said Obama is not worth his salt.
But here he is, as reported in the Sept 2009 LA times:
"But before the speech, Obama met with 32 ninth-graders and took some questions. The most interesting came from a student identified in the White House transcripts as Lily: “And if you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be,” she asked to laughter.
“Well, you know, dead or alive, that’s a pretty big list,” Obama replied to more chuckles. “You know, I think that it might be Gandhi, who is a real hero of mine.”
Obama praised Gandhi, whose creed of non-violent political action helped liberate India from British colonial rule. Gandhi led hunger strikes and acts of civil disobedience that embarrassed the British and eventually paralysed their rule.
“Now, it would probably be a really small meal because, he didn’t eat a lot,” Obama said of the Indian spiritual as well as political leader. “But he’s somebody who I find a lot of inspiration in. He inspired Dr. King, so if it hadn’t been for the non-violent movement in India, you might not have seen the same non-violent movement for civil rights here in the United States. He inspired César Chávez,” one of the founders of the United Farm Workers union and the modern Latino power movement.
Obama told the students that Gandhi represents the power of change through ethics and how to use that morality to foster change, themes he has repeated through his presidential campaign and administration. Obama, who will speak to Congress on Wednesday about healthcare reform, has been recently taking a page from the Gandhi playbook, urging citizens to pressure their representatives.
..... Obama also stressed Gandhi’s fighting spirit and will to overcome long odds. Gandhi helped “people who thought they had no power realize that they had power and then helped people who had a lot of power realize that if all they’re doing is oppressing people, then that’s not a really good exercise of power.”

Obama inspired by Mahatma Gandhi
Saturday, February 23, 2008 (Washington)
Barack Obama, Democratic front-runner for the US Presidential nomination, sees Mahatma Gandhi as an inspiration.
Obama also has a portrait of the apostle of peace in his office to remind him that ordinary people can do extraordinary things.
”In my life, I have always looked to Mahatma Gandhi as an inspiration, because he embodies the kind of transformational change that can be made when ordinary people come together to do extraordinary things,” he wrote in a yet to be published article in the ethnic India Abroad newspaper.
”That is why his portrait hangs in my Senate office; to remind me that real results will not just come from Washington, they will come from the people,” he said in the article, excerpts of which were provided in a write-up on Friday.”
Blair was always citing Jesus as his inspiration. Obama is a Ghandi fan.
Both of them the very anti-thesis of their supposed influences.
What amazes me, of course, is that the sheeple take these murderers seriously when they liken themselves to truly great , truly peaceful and loving people, stealing their limelight, good by association.
The dumb sheeple nod their sad misguided heads and brush a tear of hero worship from their eyes as they look upon their saintly leaders!
It makes me sick.
