Pigs, Fish and Men
He has rejected a request for an apology. He, and his campaign see no reason why anyone should be offended. They say that the indignation felt by his opponents is just campaign grandstanding. He has been asked if he may have said these words in error, and he has in effect stated he did not. Very well, he owns them. There are some who will blindly follow this man. They will see no wrong in his words, saying (and rightly so) that his opponent used the same phrase in the past. These people can not be swayed any more from their trance like state than a stone can be made to sing.
What others, people who think for themselves must consider is this....... This man, who claims that there is no offense unless he sees it himself, is running for President of the United States. He wants to represent us abroad to foreign leaders and be the face of the United States all over the world. Do you want a man who panders to crowds with sexual slurs? Do you want a man who is so dull witted and inarticulate that he cannot understand that his speech writers set him up to personally insult his opponent's running mate with a sexist insult?
This is not politics as usual. Barak Hussien Obama uttered those words. He uttered them knowing that Sarah Palin has referred to herself as a hockey mom, saying the only difference between which and a pit bull is lipstick. Palin used the verbal imagery as a joke on herself. Barak Hussien Obama did not. He used the verbal imagery as an attack on his opponent's running mate. He used the imagery as an attack on women who strive in a misogynistic world to stay above the locker room comments, doing twice the work without complaint just so they "measure up." He is unapologetic, and avoids the idea that he might fail to be anything other than an enlightened beacon of hope for America.
So, to help Barak Hussien Obama understand what constitutes a man, I will tell him. A man treats women with respect, not as chattel. A man has the wisdom to back down and apologize if he is wrong. A man understands that offense is not only that which is defined by him. A man does not call women names. Period. End of story.
Barak Hussien Obama has shown himself over and over to have absolutely no respect for women. Barak Hussien Obama is a sexist pig. Barak Hussien Obama has shown himself over and over to have no respect, indeed contempt, for people he considers to be beneath him whether because of their upbringing, their geographic choice of residence, their education, or their fundamental beliefs. Barak Hussien Obama is an elitist pig.
These things he has demonstrated. He has slyly insulted and degraded those who do not subscribe to his brand of elitist and misogynistic crap time and again, with impunity. The question is whether or not you, the voter sees this, and whether or not you want someone in the oval office who will either personally stoop to these measures to get there, or someone who fails to see a major faux pas of an overzealous speech writer. Your choice. Of course, there is another choice....... Leave the real pig, Barak Hussien Obama in the Senate to flick his mud around, and vote for his opponent. Then get some religion to cling to, and go buy a gun.
