Funny how photos often do more justice than and words that can be spoken. Take the photo above of the Democrat presidential nominee, Sen. Messiah Barack. Does he look any more like he would like to be any where else. Maybe with his real friends in San Francisco.
I post this because this past weekend, Mrs. rightviewfromtheleftcoast and I took in an exhibit at the Autry Museum of Western Heritage http://www.autry-museum,org/ and this photo was in the exhibit Cowboy and Presidents.
The exhibit was from the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt to George W. Bush and the influence of the West in presidential folklore. Mr. T. Roosevelt was the first president to make being a cowboy A-OK. That went down to many successors. Even a non-president, the late Sen. Barry Goldwater, was featured. President Lyndon Johnson, he was a pretty real cowboy. Then came Ronald Reagan and now we have George W. Bush.
If Sen. Messiah Barack is, God forbid, elected president, take a good look at this photo. It may be the only time you will see a, this is so hard to even type, President Obama in the rough and tumble American West. Not this Chicago guy. Or, the guy from Hawaii. With a little tutelage in Indonesia.
It all goes to the fact that this Sen. Messiah Barack really does not know much of the rest of the United States. Does this guy really think that $4 plus gas is OK? Does he think that because of that, the American economy is teetering on inflation and maintaining being slightly above water? Does he really think that he and his liberal elites will be able to shut down the most precious commodity that Americans have-FREEDOM?
I, for one, do not think I am ready for that little experiment. I don't think that his cowboy hat full of lies is going to get him in the White House.
Say what we will about Sen. John "F--- You" McCain but he does put himself out there. Many times he is just flat wrong, like not wanting to drill in ANWR. But, more often than not he is right. Tonight, Sen. "F--- You" McCain had one of his infamous Town Hall meetings. It was on the Fox News Channel http://foxnews.com/. Only one person did not show up. Guess who that was? Why yes, the man in the black cowboy hat, Sen. Messiah Barack.
Why do you think that he did not show up? Potential of a hostile audience? Afraid he was going to get caught in an Obamagaffe? Having to actually answer tough questions? All of the above, of course.
Like the photo in the cowboy hat, I think we see the real Sen. Messiah Barack when caught off guard. Maybe we should be giving him a cowboy hat at every stop!
