Barack Obama, Girlie-Man-in-Chief

Arnold Schwarzenegger made the term “girlie man” famous when as Governor of California he used it to deride his opponents in the State legislature during the budget battle in 2004. I think that after witnessing President Obama’s performance for the past year, that the term should be rightly used to describe himself. Here’s why.

Because only a girlie-man:

  • Raises over $650 million dollars to land a job and then spends the next 11 plus months complaining about how tough it is. I don’t know about you, but I’m quite certain that any man who lands a job in this economy is not complaining how hard that postion is but rather thanking God that he has a job – period.

  • Spends hundreds of millions of dollars for the chance to lead a country that he doesn’t believe is any more exceptional than any other country in the world.

  • As leader of the free world, bows down to Kings and Emperors.

  • Gets fawning news coverage from ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNBC, CNN but whines about the one network, Fox, that has the nerve to take a critical look at his presidency.

  • Is elected to the position of Chief Executive of the USA, the highest position in the country and the most powerful office in the world, but then goes about the globe apologizing for the the country he spent hundreds of millions of dollars to lead. Imagine, if you would, the CEO of any company doing the same – IBM, Caterpillar, Microsoft – could you see, for example, the CEO of IBM traveling the world apologizing for, well, being IBM? Didn’t think so.

  • Would be uncomfortable with victory. Again, imagine any other CEO being uncomfortable with victory. Take Larry Ellison of Oracle, for example. Could you see him saying his not comfortable with being victorious over a competitor? Nope. He is comfortable with winning, as is the case with all good chief executives.

  • Accepts an award, the Nobel Peace Prize, for which he is completely undeserving. If he was a man, who would have said thanks but I cannot accept it. Think about it, accepting this award would be the equivalent of Michael Phelps accepting 8 Gold Medals from the Olympic Committee before the 2008 Olympics just because he had such great potential to win them in Beijing. And by the way, if the Nobel Prize folks think potential is so important in the peace award, then they should have given it to Nelson Mandela before he spent 27 years in prison or to Mother Teresa before she spent over 40 years working to help the poor in the slums of Calcutta.

  • Doesn’t have the guts to say to the general public during the campaign what he truly stands for – socialism, statism, etc. – and what he truly thinks about the people but instead hides behind a line of “hope and change” that sadly millions of Americans swallowed hook, line, and sinker.

Finally, as Governor Schwarzenegger said “if they don’t have the guts to come up here in front of you and say, ‘I don’t want to represent you, I want to represent those special interests, the unions, the trial lawyers …’ if they don’t have the guts, I call them girlie men.” And so it is with Barack Obama – Girlie-Man-in-Chief.
