Obama’s American Schadenfreude.

Schadenfreude as defined by Webster’s is deriving pleasure from the pain of others. And while the term is German the application is very much politically American. What else could it be called when the President of the United States seeks to punish the American people for not going along with his dictates?

So for instance, that long forgotten budget battle from earlier this year where President Obama proposed sequestration- you know the one where the world was suppose to stop because we were going to cut minuscule amount from the federal budget? Well the world didn’t end but the White House has remained closed to visitors as a punishment for not having enough money to pay the tour guides. Sure it would be easy at this point to mock and make fun of the White House for golf outings or Michelle’s entourage ladened vacations.

But closing the White House is nothing more than a bratty child temper tantrum. Don’t forget that one of the things Barack and boys wanted to do was cut deeply the FAA, the FBI and other critical Federal agencies. The goal was not to look for the fraud, abuse and waste in the Federal government- the goal was to tell the American people your planes would not be safe and criminals and terrorist would now be more free because we are going to strip funding from chasing these nefarious ne’er-do-wells.

And so it is with the latest manufactured Washington crisis: the shut down over ObamaCare. The first thing the man child does was to shut down the parks services. Put barricades up around the World War ii memorial, close the roads to the Iwo Jima memorial, cut survival benefits to the survivors of the fallen, fine someone who was running at Valley Forge historic park, cut kids cancer research, and to pure amazement fine people who dared go to the grand canyon.

Each of the these inconveniences are designed around our 24 hour news media. The goal is by showing pain to the public and annoyances to travelers for sound bites congress will pass ObamaCare. The equivalent in New York City would have been Bloomberg not getting his way on the soda ban so then ordering NYPD to erect barricades around Central Park. Or the Mayor of St. Louis not getting a tax increase and then draping a cover over the St. Louis Arch. Or if some politician in your home town did not get his or her way and then closing all of the public benches around your town.

Thankfully we still have patriots in our World War 2’ers who took matters into their own hands in a strong show of civil disobedience. But does anyone else find it ironic that we are able to shut down a giant hole in the ground but not our southern boarders?

So I guess the most important question is: What would this political class do to us as citizens if we were disarmed?

    He thinks the American people will be so upset that we’ll push Congress to do as the POTUS demands! He fails to understand one thing about America – it’s our independent nature and our natural hatred totalitarian leadership! The socialists may think they are winning, but the American spirit is alive and well, and in the end, i believe it will prevail. It’s a hard road right now, but the more he punishes, the more the people are becoming fed up, angry and willing to defend our American Constitution! The bikers and truckers are just one example of the outrage that is sweeping America! Every day that he and his thugs in the Senate prolong this fiasco, the greater chance there is for him to ultimately lose. If the House capitulates, there will be dire consequences for anyone coming up for re-election and i hope they are reading the pulse of America through the right lens, because we are FED UP with “politics as usual”!

      And the latest polling results support your assertion.
      63% in favor of throwing ~everybody~ out of Congress ~and~ the percentage rises to 70% among rural voters.

    Obama is a SADIST that’s all there is to be said about him. He is loosing his temper now because people are trying to obstruct his planned destruction of America and with every month that passes his time is running out. He must inflict as much harm as possible as quickly as possible. His final act to complete the destruction and unbalance the powers will be the appointment of the most radical Supreme Court Justice the world has ever seen as Ruth Ginsberg steps down before Obamas term is near the end.

    The end result will be the utter destruction of the political power of the democrats. This is PURE politics of the democrat version. They know they are loosing and this is their last ditch effort. The PETTY spitefulness of this administration shutting people out of monuments, their HOMES and vets from THEIR monuments simply shows the childish nature of today’s democrat. Hold the entire government hostage to FORCE a monumentally FLAWED idea of a law is unconscionable. As bad as the republicans are they are right in NOT funding this deliberate hijacking of 1/6th of our economy, that has proven to be anything BUT affordable or for that matter even legal. I sincerely hope this deliberate act of sabotage by the democrats, thoroughly wakes up the beast and it kicks their tails for their stupid delusion. If not we have become a socialist nation of fools.

    The nasty man child is not qualified to hand-out towels in the Men’s room, yet there he sits on the face of a once proud and free America.
    The way he’s going it’s difficult to see how he lasts three more years…
