The Better To Hear You With, Mr. President

Wednesday evening, America heard from The Big Bad Wolf.

Make no bones about it, President Obama is attempting to cloak himself under Grandmother's dress, ready to jump out and eat America for dinner, or at least turn her into the Marxist paradise he so desires.

Specifically, beginning at 7:26 into this video clip, pay close attention to his words.

First he says: "To My Progressive friends, I would remind you that for decades, the driving idea behind reform has been to end insurance company abuses and make coverage available to those without it."

Sounds innocent enough.

"The better to hear you with, my dear."

Remember, though, that one of the best skills this man has is his ability to deliver a prepared speech to a crowd. Listen next to how quickly he turns a benign statement like that into a truthful tale of Progressive idealism:

"The public option is only a means to that end, and we should remain open to other ideas that accomplish our ultimate goal."

This is the telltale line, his Progressive signature. When Progressives hear a sentence like that, they know there is no plan for capitulation in this man's heart. This sentence means full speed ahead.

"The better to see you with, my dear."

Then, as swiftly as the wolf jumped up out of the bed, he says:

"And to my Republican friends, I say that rather than making wild claims about a government takeover of health care, we should work together to address any legitimate concerns you may have."

This is an effort to completely disarm the Conservatives who do not understand his real intentions. "Trust me, I am exactly who I make myself appear to be" is the message this sentence puts forward to an unsuspecting Blue Dog or moderate Conservative who might be on the fence about his or her vote.

"The better to eat you with, my dear!"

We must make sure that we are the Woodsman, and save Little Red Riding Hood - and America - from the Big Bad Wolf.

Hi Solomon!

You really nailed the sneaky talking points. I love the "Big Bad Wolf" analogies. Very Very True. Thanks for posting the video too. My eyes are still trying to recover. I see you tortured yourself too.

I will take you advice and try ABC next time. Tapper is better...but in CHicago, our reception for the local station here is very bad for channel 7. I don't have cable, So I have to adjust my antenna.

I hope America will adjust their antenna's and see thru the LIES and not fall for it, before their freedoms and money gets eaten up.

Glad you liked my live feed post too, I try to bring some levity to all this, because it's just to damn depressing!

I am glad you checked out my blog...perhaps it will guide you. Your assertion that I am filled with anger and bitterness has caused me to reflect upon your words, and inspired me to write a post addressing it. Perhaps it will sway you...

my, oh my, "grandma" Obama, what a big/long nose you have.."

Great job. I love little red riding hood :)

My buzz word was 'social justice'. That was all I heard, because it tells the whole story in 2 words.

There were so many 'wolf in sheep clothing' moments.

Keep it up...

He was up front about his message to "progressives." I was pretty surprised that he was so open about it. A watered down healthcare bill is ok with him because it provides progressives with the crack they need to get their foot in the door.

You are so right. And what a better analogy than The Big Bad Wolf? Right on Sol-my-man!

Soloman said...

Bunni - glad you enjoyed, it was fun putting this one together. I had that old 50's song going through my head...

And you gotta watch the best channel in your area, plus I doubt Tapper has anything to do with Presidential indoctrination addresses.

Yes - I tortured myself, but it was worth it. It took me until the 3rd viewing to notice the segment I posted about, but after thinking about it, I came to realize that was the centerpiece of the whole speech.

I really enjoy studying this guy (believe it or not) - I sit with my Psych book and read about patterns I pick up in his behaviors.

Yep - I'm that crazy...

Soloman said...

Candle.. so nice you came back.

I looked at your blog, but I'm not quite sure how anything you wrote relates to my statements to you.

I do think it's funny that you are still trying to hold up your facade as a radical liberal, though.

You're funny.. but it's pretty transparent. Either way - good stuff.

Soloman said...

Pedaling... are you saying he lied?

Come on now... that wouldn't be a good thing to say, as we've heard all day long today... again, and again, and again if you check out the lefty sites.

So soon speaking out is uncouth. Used to be, back a year or two ago it was all the rage..

You gotta check this post out:

He always makes me laugh.

Soloman said...

Jan - I love hearing him say "social justice" - it's such a dead giveaway.

glad you enjoyed :)

Soloman said...

TC - I too was surprised, I thought he'd be much more centrist and maybe even try to appease the right a little more.

Obviously his ego has gotten the best of him.

I saw CBC on your profile - is that your concept? It looks great - I just added it to my blogroll and posted a banner, and emailed requesting an add.

The more of our voices the better.. strength in numbers, they say...

Soloman said...

Tammy - glad you liked it! I'll go check dogsandjeans (I'm sure there's a meaning there?) in a bit.. thanks for the tip.

I read the post you put up with the link to the alternate school speech - that guy's pretty good! I was laughing at the booger references, how can you not laugh at booger references?

tammy said...

I'm glad that you thought that was funny. Sometimes I just gotta laugh or my head's gonna explode with all that's going on.

Soloman said...

Tammy - wrap a towel around your head before it explodes.. don't want to leave a mess for the loved ones..

Seriously, though - here we go again! They've been back for just one week and it's just one thing after another. This guy (Obama) is absolutely planned chaos on steroids.
