Barack Obama does not like people.
Don’t take my word for it, take it from three people who have known him the most and supported him the most:
“The truth is, Obama doesn’t call anyone, and he’s not close to almost anyone. It’s stunning that he’s in politics, because he really doesn’t like people. My analogy is that it’s like becoming Bill Gates without liking computers.” – Neera Tanden, former top aid to Barack Obama and current President of Center for American Progress.

I see a failure to embrace all sorts of people, even members of Congress and the business community.
The crowd adored Obama, although not as much as I think he adored himself.
Obama never espoused a cause bigger than his own political survival.
It’s hard to care about someone who seems not to care in return… I will vote for Obama with regret. I wish he was the man I once mistook him for.

John Heilemann: Obama is an unusual politician. There are very few people in American politics who achieve something — not to mention the Presidency — in which the following two conditions are true: one, they don’t like people. And two, they don’t like politics.
KC: Obama doesn’t like people?
JH: I don’t think he doesn’t like people. I know he doesn’t like people.
What do you get when you get a leader who doesn’t like people?
You can end up with a sociopath like Nero, who would think nothing of throwing the Christians to the lions and then laugh at the very thought of it, as portrayed in the 1932 Cecile B. DeMille classic, Sign of the Cross:
Take the rare mix of a man with enough oratory skill and charisma to become Messiah to his fainting followers and who at the same time doesn’t actually like people, showing disdain for Democracy in telling his supporters to seek “revenge” and to “punish our enemies,” and give power to that man who was mentored by a Communist, who uses well-known Communist slogans and spouts Communist ideas about “redistribution” and “spreading the wealth around” . . . what’s the worst that could happen?
The Obama who does not like people is probably more of an introvert than a mass-murdering sociopath, but it is interesting to note that he does share most of the other characteristics of the above leaders: a messiah-type figure who believes in the citizens as mere subjects of the state, a man with a basic indifference to people in general and an absolute belief in the central planning of a government-run economy . . . the resemblance is kind of startling, wouldn’t you say?
(The graphic is also a great rebuttal to all the atheists in the world like Bill Maher who spout nonsense about religions being the cause of all the evil in the world.)
Estimates of the genocide Mao waged on his own people through the Cultural Revolution range from 49,000,000 to 78,000,000.
Stalin is responsible for almost 43,000,000 dead through murders and government-created starvations of his own people. Both Mao and Stalin each killed more of their citizens than all the 38,000,000 battle-dead of the wars of the 20th century
Another 18,000,000 of the Soviet people died at the hands of other Soviet leaders, that’s on top of the 43 million Stalin killed.
Beyond the millions of soldiers Hitler was responsible for killing on the battlefields, Hitler also massacred 12,000,000 citizens in concentration camps and by deliberate murders.
Pol Pot took over a Cambodia with a population of 7,000,000 and managed to kill some 2,000,000 of his own people from April 1975 through December 1978. That’s over one-quarter of his people in a mere 44 months.
In North Korea, Kim Jong-il’s total dead from one of their food shortages are estimated at between 900,000 to 2.4 million dead in just the three short years between 1995 and 1998. In the most closed society on Earth, who knows how many more North Koreans have died in internment and reeducation camps which we can only see via satellite.
It was so bad, Obama’s Secretary of Youth Propaganda, Jon Stewart, wondered if Obama even wants a second term:
“I thought he had a very difficult night. I’m concerned that he may not reelect us. He may walk away.”
“I don’t know what he was doing out there… Where was Obama tonight? … What was Romney doing tonight? He was winning!”
Wow. When a sycophant like Matthews can’t even find a way to spin it as a win for Obama, you know it was a disaster.
Charles Blow, a typical Obama-lover from the New York Times, offered this up:
“There are two more chances for the president to change tactics, or at least to show up to the debates energized and nimble: President Xanax just doesn’t cut it.”
Though more adept in keeping his liberal bias buried between the lines than his successor Brian Williams, there’s no doubt about Tom Brokaw’s leftist leanings. Here’s what he had to say:
“If it had been Romney performing like the president last night, [the election] would have been over.”
Through his high-level posts in the Clinton team to his jobs at ABC, George Stephanopoulos has never stopped working tirelessly for the Democrats. As a man who managed to declare with a straight face the Democrat candidates winners of eight of the last nine presidential debates, even he had to give it up for Romney:
“I think Governor Romney definitely more crisp in his presentation tonight… he was able to be aggressive without being offensive.”
Ed Schultz, maybe the most disgustingly partisan of all the partisans on MSNBC, said this:
“I think the President created a big problem for him tonight, for himself. I don’t think he explained himself very well on the economy. I thought he was off his game. I was absolutely stunned tonight.”
Some of the best tweets of the night from the Obama-loving hacks in the OSM:
One of Obama’s top surrogates at the New York Times, Nick Kristof:
Romney is relaxed and empathetic, while Obama comes across as a constipated professor. C’mon, Mr. President! #Debates

Million dollar donor and the nastiest spewer of filth on television, Bill Maher:
i can’t believe i’m saying this, but Obama looks like he DOES need a teleprompter
— Bill Maher (@billmaher) October 4, 2012
The best two tweets come from Andrew Sullivan, Obama’s Zombie-in-Chief at The Daily Beast:
This is a rolling calamity for Obama. He’s boring, abstract, and less human-seeming than Romney! thebea.st/RdXvE9
— Andrew Sullivan (@sullydish) October 4, 2012
How is Obama’s closing so fucking sad, confused, lame? He choked. He lost. He may even have lost election tonight. thebea.st/RdXvE9
— Andrew Sullivan (@sullydish) October 4, 2012
Approximately 67 million people watched Obama bomb as Romney turned in a stellar performance. It was a beautiful thing to witness.
Never has an NFL player faced so much doubt and so much hate.
We’ve never seen a player get called out to this degree by fellow players, both current and former, guys like Terrell Suggs, Steve Smith, Jermichael Finley, Joe Flacco and Merrill Hoge . . . it goes beyond a few guys just questioning whether he has what it takes, it’s the level of the criticism, you just never see that kind of sniping from NFL players against another player.
Even as Michael Vick was going to prison for betting on dogs and cheering it on as the dogs tore each other apart, his fellow players had his back and were either silent about it or offered Vick words of encouragement.
What has Tebow ever done to attract all the doubt and all the hate? Bend on one knee after a touchdown and give his Lord and Savior thanks?
“I don’t get it,” said Champ Bailey, the Broncos’ star cornerback. “You can say it looks different or whatever you want, but don’t say he won’t make it. You don’t do that. This is like a big fraternity for me. Guys who do that, I lose respect for them.”
And then there’s the legion of scumbags like Bill Maher, who go far beyond ill will wrapped inside of football analysis and are completely undisguised in their hate for Tebow, hating him for who he is and everything he stands for.
Watching Tebow win, I honestly don’t know which I enjoy more, seeing a kid with such great heart and character exceed all expectations, or thinking of all the Christian-hating bigots like Bill Maher, clutching his remote in anguish, wanting to change the channel, but unable to turn away because Tebow’s shocked the world again, and now Tebow’s down on one knee, praying to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ after another game-winning touchdown and they’re nearly apoplectic because this can’t be happening because they said he couldn’t make it, he wasn’t not good enough, he wasn’t skilled enough . . . ahhhhh! This can’t be happening!!!
So for all the haters out there, let’s relive your misery and take a look at what Tebow has treated us to so far in his first season as an NFL starter:
- In his first start, led the largest comeback in NFL history with fewer than 3:00 remaining, bringing the Broncos back from down 15 to beat the Dolphins.
- In a comeback win against the Jets, Tebow capped the drive with a 20-yard touchdown run with 0:58 remaining, marking the longest game-winning scoring run by a quarterback in the final minute of regulation in NFL history.
- Down 8 at the half, another 4th quarter comeback win in Minnesota gives Tebow a tie for the NFL record with five 4th quarter and overtime comeback wins in his first 10 starts.
- The very next week, Tebow and the Broncos overcome a 10-point deficit against the Bears with just over two minutes to play. In the history of the NFL, no quarterback has ever had as many as six comeback victories in their first 11 starts.
- Add to the six comebacks the fact that in all three of the overtime comebacks, Tebow had to engineer a game-tying 4th quarter drive just to send it into overtime and you could call it three more comebacks within the six comebacks.
- Looking back on the 2011 regular season, the Broncos were 1-4 and looked like one of the worst teams in the league when Tebow got the starting job. At the end of the season, Tebow had helped lift the team to one of the most improbable playoff berths ever.
- Tebow’s first NFL playoff game? The best performance of his career. He passes for 316 yards, breaking John Elway’s team record for most passing yards in a playoff debut. Tebow connects on four passes of at least 30 yards in the second quarter alone (first time in a playoff game since 1960) and finishes with 5 for 30+. He sets the Bronco franchise record for QB rating in a playoff game (125.6) and an NFL record for yards per completion (31.6) in a playoff game. Tebow throws for a game-winning touchdown on the first play from scrimmage in overtime, the 80-yard touchdown pass is the longest overtime touchdown pass in NFL playoff history.
Whatever happens against the Patriots Saturday night, Tim Tebow’s rookie season has been more storybook than anyone could have ever imagined – best story of the entire year. Suck on that, haters.
2012 BONUS PREDICTIONS: The Dead Pool
You probably know how this works, you make a list of 10 people, at the end of the year, the scores are tabulated by taking each person you correctly predicted the demise of, subtracting their age from 100, and then adding those numbers up from each correct prediction.
Here is my dead pool for 2012:
Kim Jong Un
Juan Manuel Santos
Jared Lee Loughner
Bill Maher is an ugly, disgusting and vile human being. How else can you describe a man who spews this kind of venomous hatred against Tim Tebow on a Christmas Eve tweet?
Wow, Jesus just fucked #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them”
— Bill Maher (@billmaher) December 24, 2011
It must have been driving the Christian haters of America nuts, watching Tim Tebow come in and win seven of his first eight starts, taking a lowly Bronco team that was 1-4 and bringing them to the top of the AFC West at 8-5. It must have drove them up the wall to see Tebow praying to his Lord and Savior in the end zone and on the sidelines on the winning scores over an NFL record six 4th quarter and overtime comebacks in his first eleven starts.
So when Tebow and the Broncos fall to the Patriots and Bills in successive weeks, for Maher, it must have been like the rapture – atheist style – to see that Tebow magic finally hit a two-game skid. What a sad and pathetic thing to see a petty man’s heart like Maher’s so filled with joy over Tebow losing a couple games.
This is what bigotry looks like, folks – ugly, hateful, unadulterated bigotry. Next time you hear the lie about liberals being oh so tolerant, just think of Bill Maher and his hateful tweet, hating on a man like Tim Tebow for nothing other than his Christian faith, and realize that the left is the home of the most intolerant bigots in America.
