Why Obama Delivered His Gitmo Speech

It occurs to us that the ultimate reason for Mr. Obama’s (otherwise pointless) press conference on Guantanamo may be found in Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules For Radicals’: 


RULE 11: "The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative." Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.

He was just following his master.

    Ok, but where was the constructive alternative – I listened to him and his teleprompter – no alternative there.

    I’ve noticed when Obama gives a speech he always pulls a folded copy from his suit pocket & then proceeds to read from the teleprompter. Apparently, the copy of the Constitution wasn’t the only fake up there yesterday.

      LOL, When did that start? Before or after his teleprompter malfuntion? Guess he just wants to be covered in all cases now!

      I watched his eyes on the numerous replays of that incident and there was pure fire in his eyes over that. Bet he fired the poor guy charged with keeping up with those things. Probably fired the actual teleprompter too! ;-)

      His tech guy,”William Gates” caught a lot of heat for it.

      I was going to add to this thread but my teleprompter broke and so I lost my thought.

    Unfortunately, I went a got a do nothing degree several years back at the University of Kan-Okla-Tex (you pick it). The Sociology dept waxed wained and drooled over Mr Alinsky’s writings and theories. Fortunately, Ive also attended the The Operational Military College of Hard KNOCKs for the past 20 years. Lots of field trips to the worlds best armpits. Rabble rousing is an artform and Pres Obama grew up as a community organizer. So its not very long stretch to see that he will implement many of the doctrinal reforms that Sociologists want. Ive learned that the way to get a Social theorist to shut up is ask them: How are you going to pay for this. You know what the typical answer is? Take it away from the military budgets.

    And when this isn’t enough they will always tax people even more in order to provide for those of whom success has never come their way. Jesus told his disciples that there would always be poor people in the world but this fact is lost upon the radical liberal mindset.

      “Jesus told his disciples that there would always be poor people in the world but this fact is lost upon the radical liberal mindset.”

      I’m not so sure it’s a fact lost as much as it is their excuse for grabbing even more power and money through implementing socialism. Those that really don’t get what the real agenda is are the poor and mindless sheeple who blindly follow down the path of what will certainly be a very dark future for anyone not in “the loop.”

    Why? because NObama found out Cheney was going to give a speech defending the G.W. Bush administration. so NObama called a speech event ( NO press questions allowed), and purposely started late ( we all know NObama will kick out kindergardeners to keep on schedule). NObama’s attempt to preempt Cheney failed however. it was hilarious that NObama’s security policy was blown out by Cheney’s 10 points that Cheney read from prepared notes with very little change.

    On a latter visit to Chicago, after he learned some laws, Obama’s black friends complained to him of the Mexicans were getting all the jobs that belonged to blacks. And the Mexicans gangs were fighting the already Black gangs. Also, it angered him the protest when the Mexicans would wave their flags, and their pouring over the border, and he wanted to do something about it, and he wanted to pass laws to stop immigration, and how it angered him, when politicans said that the Mexicans were hard workers, and he really wanted to stop it, but then realised if he did it would be “counter-productive”. Counter-Productive to what? He doesn’t say what he means by that. I assume what he meant is it would hurt him getting Mexican’s votes. So, he sacrificed the impoverished black people he was to fight for, alllowed Mexican gangs to kill black people. For votes.
    The violence in Chicago is so bad. Worse than NYC that has 3 times the population. Remember his orgs, Mexican ladys complaining they had to have an ID to register to vote. heh heh. No one makes fake ID’s as good as Mexican’s.
