Resistance With Respect

When President Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected to his fourth term, Kansas editor William Allen White, a staunch Republican, wrote: “We who hate your gaudy guts salute you.”

 

President Obama: We have never hated your gaudy guts. And we acknowledge that a majority of our fellow citizens of this Great Republic have saluted you and conferred upon you for the second time the office of President of the United States.

 

We thank God that more than 120 million Americans voted in a peaceful and orderly election. That alone is a wonder of the world. (You will pardon us, Sir, if we also thank Heaven for the Twenty-second Amendment, another legacy from FDR.)

 

Our favorite portrait of you is the inaugural cover of The New Yorker.] Over the past four years, we have written more than 600 columns singly and together about your administration’s policies. Throughout those years, we have kept the high promise of that Inaugural Portrait in mind. We have endeavored always to remember that you hold the office held by Washington and Lincoln. We believe that office deserves respect.

 

We also recall the amazing spectacle of millions of Americans attending your first Inauguration. We feel deeply what your taking the presidential oath must mean, especially to our fellow citizens whose ancestors survived the horrors of the Middle Passage. Those forebears came here in chains. For our fellow citizens of African descent, your rise to the presidency holds profound spiritual and historical meaning. With our fellow Christians, we share a belief in the redemptive value of suffering.

 

We must in all candor admit that we have opposed most of your policies.

We believe your administration daily fails to recognize the God-given right to life. We assert that what was wrong in slavery, what was wrong in segregation, is what is wrong in abortion. It treats millions of humans as less than human. TIME’s Joe Klein admits that ultra-sound makes it “impossible to deny that that thing in the womb is a human being.” Mr. President, your administration denies this reality every day. Abraham Lincoln said it well: “Nothing stamped in the divine image was sent into the world to be trod upon.” President Obama: Are not unborn children so stamped?

    Christians, PLEASE get it right – STOP trying to reason with evil! Yes, pray Obama repents and submits to God, but given Obaloney’s open defiance against God this is very, very unlikely. Pray a Godly man replaces him.
    Obama is a narcissistic, evil, rotten, gay, Muslim.
    Nothing is impossible with God but this is an uphill battle. God will not over ride a man’s will if he wishes to remain in enmity against Him.

    As Radar said on M.A.S.H, “We don’t hate you sir, just your guts.” And after what Obama has done to your country over the past 4 years, I do hate his guts and him.

    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C

    “Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions…Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful good society’ which shall now be Rome, interpreted to mean ‘more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.’”

    Does anyone here remember “The Dissident Frogman”?
    Well, he is back (after too long of an absence) with a stern warning for America, from France.

    http://www.thedissidentfrogman.com/blog/link/the-frogmans-prophecies/

    Read his almost Casandra-like warning.
    Before you make an off-hand remarks about the French, rest assured that he is one of the few with both a spine and a mind, and America’s interest at heart.

    Excellent points! We NEED more government supervision on what goes in in our panties. If we just got that right, everything else would be OK. If we plead our case strongly enough, perhaps we could also get them to take a leading role in our health care.

    Resistance With Respect? Are you friggen nuts? Are you channeling Neville Chamberlain? What in the hell do you think respect will get you? These people deserve no respect. And neither do you. You want to be a doormat? fine. Just keep it to yourself. Complacency and the high road, has led us to this place. Loathing and scorn are all the traitor and his minions deserve. Fight them tooth and nail. Block them at every turn. Trip them up any way possible. Resistance With Respect? Not for a minute.

    A message to those who voted for obama:
    “Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
    May your chains set lightly upon you, and
    may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

    What’s with this and the Charlie Daniels letter? You don’t be polite with someone who replaced the last free country on earth with the slavery of Socialism and say “Dear sir.” Fuck that.

    Thank you for the link. I read it all. It was sobering and uplifting all at once. I was crying at the end. A great message to us all.

    Nope. The current occupant of the WH has forfeited respect due to his actions and attitudes. Offering respect validates behavior; in my opinion, virtually none of the behavior exhibited over the last four years deserves any respect whatsoever.

    I agree that the office of President deserves respect, but this article was written to a man, not an office.

    Should we have respected any of the demagogues who have appeared on the world stage over the past 100 years? I’d like to read the author’s response to that question.

    Until somebody can adequately explain to me how he can get over 100% of voter turnout in multiple locations, and convince me that their story is the truth, I’m not acknowledging jack shit.

    My pleasure Xavier and Kairn.
    The Frogman’s always a good read.
    He was in his heyday about 9-years ago but occasionally resurfaces.

    “President Obama: We have never hated your gaudy guts. And we acknowledge that a majority of our fellow citizens of this Great Republic have saluted you and conferred upon you for the second time the office of President of the United States.”

    I immediately wanted to post “I ain’t no part of this ‘we’”, but all you excellent posters above beat me to it and said it better.

    God damn you Obama and you did not get reelected legitimately so damn all the Democrats that go along with you.

    MY response to this article at that site:

    “Nothing stamped in the divine image was sent into the world to be trod upon.”-Abraham Lincoln
    (and THAT’s my next tattoo…around my neck at the collar)

    This statement and this article do NOT go well together!

    While he’s “trodding upon us” you ask that we accept the trod, the mud, the ridicule, the slanders, and defamations and eat whatever shit he chooses to put upon our plates….NOT going to happen!
    The Oath I swore was to “defend and protect the Constitution of the United States of America, against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic”…I see obama as BOTH!
    Mt Oath as a Ranger doesn’t allow that I surrender peacefully, nor does it allow that I leave a fallen comrade…my “fallen comrade” IS the Constitution and I will NOT submit!
