Really it just amazes me that NASCAR would even invite Michelle Obama and Jill Biden to be on the same stage as Sgt. Barry and his family at Homestead Motor Speedway. It’s really too bad the start of the final race and championship deciding race was turned into part of a re-election campaign for the 2012 presidential election. Shame on you NASCAR, Obama’s and Biden’s. I do applaud you for having a military hero, such as Sgt. Barry, and his family there to start the race, but given the situation, wouldn’t it have been much better to have a past champion (or two) on stage with him and his family? Or maybe another veteran or two? Just keep politics out of it!
It is no wonder that Obama and Biden received boos from the crowd, given all that has happened between them and race fans. To me, the real shame here is that Sgt. Barry and his family had to share the stage with someone who feels the way these two (and their spouses) have shown they feel towards the military.
Remember the “Veterans should pay for their own health insurance to save the country money” debacle shortly after being inaugurated in 2009? Remember the “This is the first time I’ve felt proud of my nation” quote, way back in February of 2008? Remember the quip by Barack about “they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”? And the vast majority of these folks really do not like being lied to about Health Care the way this White House has!
These things are just the tip of the iceberg as far as a lot of these Liberty and Nascar race-loving fans are concerned! And, as much as the Obama’s and Biden’s might like to forget about it, or sweep these things under the rug, the people all this was directed towards are having a very hard time forgetting…or forgiving!
Part of what really irritates these god-loving, race-loving, life-loving, patriotic Americans is that almost of the things the Obama’s and Biden’s have said or done about them, was done in a way that was meant to hide it from those it was directed at. The clingers on quote was made during a fundraising speech in San Francisco and aimed at people in Pennsylvania! Remember Pelosi saying “we have to pass the healthcare bill to see what’s in it.”?
Almost all of these folks (and me too) would really like to know just exactly who it is you’re lying to. Is it the people you are extracting your campaign funds from, or is it all the “common folk” you would like to rule over? Actually, most of us already know, we would just like to hear a tiny bit of honesty from your lips aimed at all who might hear your words. You really would be well advised to stop pissing off huge sections of the population because at some point in time, you just might need, or at least want them, on your side!
