Since the inauguration of President Obama, I have relentlessly dealt with the ill-treatment and lack of respect shown to him as a president.
Time after time I have explained that a lot of the opposition that our President faces is due to the color of his skin. However, in more recent months I find that there are several individuals who seriously have a problem, but I will focus on three. Among them are Senator Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz, Senator Allen West and Donald Trump.
Senator Ted Cruz is the junior United States Senator for the state of Texas since 2013. Prior to becoming Senator he was Solicitor General of Texas.
Although he is the first Hispanic to be elected U.S. Senator from Texas he has elected to start his senatorial career off in the hot seat. With less than a year’s worth of experience in the Senate he has come onto the scene adamantly opposing the great majority of President Obama’s initiatives and efforts. Cruz and other Senate Republicans were pursuing what has been labeled as a “continuing resolution” that would defund the Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare, as a condition of funding the government.
Former Senator Allen West of Florida is also amongst the number of those opposing the president. He is a former member of the US House of Representatives. Just recently, West mocked President Obama and described him as, “throwing a tantrum” and “acting like a spoiled brat”. He continued by stating that, “We have been giving Barack Obama everything that he has wanted. We gave him a state senator position in Chicago, we gave him a U.S. Senate position out of the state of Illinois, unproven, untested, no resume, we gave him the presidency twice. But Mr. Obama isn’t satisfied, and the result is predictable: It’s what happens when an overindulged child is denied.” Well newsflash Mr. West, you didn’t give him anything he earned the right to occupy the seat that he is in!
Finally, there is American businessman and television personality Donald Trump. Though he expressed a desire to become a candidate for presidency in the 2012 election, he decided against it. However, that has not stopped his ridiculous comments and outrageous accusations against the president. Last year, Trump offered to donate $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choice in exchange for the release of the President’s college and passport application.
Following President Obama’s re-election, he then sent messages on his Twitter account saying that the election was a “sham and a travesty” and that the electoral college was “a disaster” and called for “a revolution.” But he was ended up deleting that comment.
At the end of the day, considering all that has been done and said during the administration of President Barack Obama, all I can say is that these three men should invest in the library of An Idiot’s Guide to Dummies. Thus, I have felt compelled to share the writing of Stanley Bing. I believe that it can be used as a means to help us better understand the mentality of Cruz, Trump, West and their following train.
The article reads as such: “In the beginning, there were Dummies. Dummies who needed instruction in everything, from anthropology to cooking to philosophy to zoology. Dummies who were convinced of their insufficiency in the face of the demands of civilization–and they were right! Thus, books for Dummies were born. But the story doesn’t end there. Because right behind those Dummies were folks who were just as vague, uninformed, uneducable and rightfully insecure as Dummies, but who were reluctant to admit they were part of that populous group. These, of course, were Idiots.
So here they are, Idiots and Dummies, hungry for information that will aid them in the job of living less stupidly. But what is the biggest problem that faces every Idiot, every day? That’s right! What to do about Dummies? For Dummies are everywhere and we Idiots need to know how to deal with them. The key to dealing with Dummies is to recognize that because they are Dummies they don’t know they are Dummies. Being an Idiot, you are smarter and can explain things to them politely. Explaining things politely and slowly is the best way to bring Dummies up to speed. Very slowly. And politely. Pretty soon they’ll get what you’re aiming at. And more important, do what you want them to do. Dummies also like examples, and as an Idiot, you need to be able to offer as many as they need to “get” things.
Say you’re in a budget review, and you’re trying to get a bunch of Dummies to understand what you need to keep things going. All they know is that your department is costing a lot of money, and they want it to cost less. Dummies! You need to give them a document that, in very large type with extremely clear bullets, explains why you need every bit of money dedicated to you and possibly even a little bit more.
Like this: I need all my money to keep stuff going the way you like it to; I need more, actually, for a lot of good reasons and please give me more right away so you don’t have to listen to too many of them and get all bored and sweaty. Those points are the heart of every decent budget review that any Idiot has ever presented to any Dummy. Master them. They work! If they don’t, try them again. Dummies like repetition. They do. Repetition. They like it. The need to deal with Dummies doesn’t stop at the door of your office building. Many Dummies you’ll deal with are friends and family members and are therefore more aggravating than other people.”
In conclusion, I rest my case this guide leaves very little room for interpretation unless you are a Dummy!
