Obama’s Tucson Memorial Speech Was More Manipulation

Obama’s Tucson Memorial Speech Was More Manipulation

Lloyd Marcus

 

When I was a kid, my black dad spoke with what felt like admiration about
Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Powell was a handsome, articulate, famed, and powerful
black minister and congressman. Despite adulterous affairs with women in his
church, charges of financial misconduct and wild parties on his yacht, it was
said that women joined Powell’s church several times for the thrill of coming to
the front of the congregation to shake his hand.
My dad has been the epitome of character all of my life. And yet, something
about Powell’s persona and ability to deliver a riveting sermon fascinated my
dad. As a kid, given Powell’s lack of character, I did not hold the smooth
talking playboy minister in high regard.
Conservative intellectuals’ rave reviews of Obama’s memorial speech for the
Tucson shooting victims give me an insight into my dad’s positive view of
Powell.
Obama’s speech struck me as more of the same; his masterful sleazy bait and
switch talking from both sides of his mouth. In a nutshell, while saying the
shooting had nothing to do with politics, Obama lectured Americans about the
need for more civility in political speech.
Meanwhile, Obama’s minions have written thousands of articles holding the
Tea Party Movement, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin
responsible for the shooting. Even Michelle Obama chimed in with her letter
calling for more civility.
When Obama said we need to tone down our language for Christina Green, the
little girl who was killed in the shooting, it turned my stomach; how
exploitative and manipulative- so typically Democrat. It felt like a moment from
the liberal Democrat Senator Paul Wellstone Memorial, another memorial which the
Democrats exploited for political gain. “Do it for Paul! Do it for
Paul!”
So when conservative guru Dr. Charles Krauthammer and the Fox News team
gave Obama almost tearful rave reviews for his brilliant speech, I thought, “Am
I crazy?”

Then, I realized, like my dad, Krauthammer and the Fox team are
intellectuals. They “get off” on appearances and sounding “smart.”  I’m just a
regular guy who puts stock into who a person really is — people who say what
they mean, mean what they say, and do it.
Listening to Obama’s speech, all I heard was a despicable man exploiting
the event to silence opposition to his destruction of America as we know it.
Frankly, I am proud to be named among the tea party patriots, rather than
the political elites on both sides of the isle. We have had enough of putting
pretty smooth talking scoundrels in political office who betray us. I’ll take
character over eloquent oratory, any day.
