Obama’s List of Friends Thrown Under the Bus Grows

September 30, 2009


This past week Barack Obama, in unprecedented fashion, strongly suggested to David Paterson that he should not run for reelection as the Democrat candidate for Governor of New York. Obama’s people then leaked the story to the press.  The President wants Andrew Cuomo to be his party’s nominee, since Paterson seems sure to lose the general election.

Here is a video of CNN’s Lou Dobbs covering the story:

ABC News also covered the story and points out how the President even introduced Paterson in a completely different way than the way than he did Andrew Cuomo at a speaking engagement that both men attended.  Paterson was an also-mentioned while Cuomo was effusively praised.

Even the leftist Huffington Post is angry at Obama for throwing Paterson under the bus. They wrote:

“You can understand why Barack Obama and his team would like to see a more attractive Democratic candidate for governor than David Patterson [sic]. You can understand why the White House would be trying to prod, or lure, Patterson into retirement.  But there’s a wide gap between that and what happened over the weekend, when the White House decided to publicly humiliate the governor.”

Shouldn’t we be concerned that we have a President who is ready to throw any friend under the bus?  It doesn’t matter how close they are to him.  If they are political liabilities, they are gone.  His twenty-year mentor and pastor Jeremiah Wright — get under that bus.  Illinois politicians that helped him win every office he had ever won — thanks for your help, under the bus with you.  Even family members and his own church have been thrown under the bus if they make him look bad.

Left-wing Saturday Night Live did a Robert Smigel cartoon on Obama (before their Obama love obsession began during the election) called The Obama Files. It showed Obama telling Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton how much he needed their help and then doing all sorts of funny things to keep his connections with them away from the press.

Recently, just before Van Jones was kicked to the curb, I had told my wife beforehand that within a week Van Jones would be gone.  How did I know?  That’s what Obama does.  You bring him negative press — you are gone.  One of the best ways to know the character of a man is to check his loyalty to his friends and supporters.

Napoleon Hill said,

“Lack of loyalty is one of the major causes of failure in every area of life.”

And Goethe said,

“He who does not feel his friends to be the world to him, does not deserve that the world should hear of him.”

We have heard from Obama.  But can we trust him?  One blog has a list of 57 people Obama threw under the bus before he was president.

Here is my own unofficial (and shorter) Obama’s Under the Bus list — feel free to add more to it (I’m limiting mine to people thrown under since Obama started running for the 2008 election):

Each name that is added tells us more and more about our President.

    You forgot the most important ones:

    The American voters who put him in office.

      He never counted them as his friends in the first place Julie….

      They didn’t mean anything to him then, & still don’t…

        That’s sort of the point…i.e. the way he treats his friends – how will he treat the rest of us?

          Simply as financial fodder to be used to fuel his megalomania…

    He threw his moma under the bus his grandfather and grandmother that supported and raised him yet it was to his father the man of Africa that deserted him at two years of age that he looked to or gravated to, from his book. That should have told everyona all they needed to know about this slug.

    O’Bamba is ‘the racist’ when he, even suggests, that a ‘white man’ can do better as Gov. of NYS, than the current Black Gov. Patterson…….

    GEORGE (his half-brother by blood)

    This poor kid! He lives in Indonesia in what looks like a make-shift chicken coop; he has no plumbing, no electric, no medicines or medical care, no food, NOTHING.

    So during the Campaign, a news reporter did a story about George and on camera the boy
    BEGGED HIS OLDER BROTHER FOR HELP. Obama’s response was to ask the Indonesian Govt to jail the boy if he spoke again to any American reporters up until the election.
    Even the boys next door chicken-coop neighbor went on camera and begged for help for the boy – she said “nobody is asking you for anything, just will you please help George? He deserves help, he is a fine boy”. OBAMA NEVER SENT SO MUCH AS A DAMN SANDWICH.
    But Republicans got together and sent $2000.00 American money to him. One of those who sent this money was Sarah Palin, so its reported in Indonesia, anyway.

    AND HIS GRANDMOM? Do you guys realize that when Obama went to see Grandmom in the Village, that HE PROMISED TO BUILD THEM A FANCY NEW SCHOOL? It is customary for a relative who “makes it” to contribute to the Village, so Obama promised the school. Now, almost two years later, NO SCHOOL; NOT EVEN ONE BRICK MOVED TO BUILD A SCHOOL.
    Those poor people even believed Obama so much that they created a sign and stuck it in the ground where the school is to be built. There it is: just a lonely blue sign that says “Obama secondary School”. Grandmom, meanwhile, is not very well liked by the Village, because they went without food and other necessities to install electric and plumbing to her hut out of respect for the fact that barack was going to build the school. Now she is in jeopardy of
    being thrown out of the Village – her home since childhood. NICE GUY THAT OBAMA.

    WHEN I READ THESE FACTS, I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT ANYBODY HERE WOULD ACTUALLY BUY INTO THE GARBAGE THAT OBAMA GIVES A CRAP ABOUT OUR FAMILIES OR OUR HEALTH CARE OR ANYTHING ELSE. He will sell this Nation to the gutter for a freakin dime if it serves his purpose. AND IT DOES: Ever get the feeling that Obama is still
    ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL? Well, he IS. He is campaigning for “President of the World” which is why he threw this entire NATION under the bus at the United Nations, while we watched him buddy-up to his socialist American-hating friends. He sickens me.
