WND column

Obama is Bad

Obama is bad. Not in the reverse meaning of the term, by which one indicates that an individual is actually cool or intimidating or otherwise superlative in some manner, but in the simple and straightforward negative sense. He is a bad president. He is a bad black man. He is a bad socialist. He is a bad peacemaker. He is a bad American. And most of all, he is bad for America and the world.

Bad black man...?

RACISS!!!

On a more serious note, you perfectly summed up my feelings about this plane crash of a president. I'm going to point a number of people to your article.

The bummer is that Mittens is the other choice. I expect no miracles from Mittens. But while I'm the last person to scream "mostest importantest election EVAH", Obama is so bad that I think I might just vote for Captain Underoos. I realize he's the white(r) Obama. But at least he doesn't eat dogs.

One problem with the internet is that it can be difficult to know when people are being serious or sarcastic. I'm not talking about Vox's column itself, but rather some of the comments, like this one from "Brooke":

"Without a doubt, Vox, this is the best article you have ever written. I couldn't agree more!

Romney in 2012! He is America's last hope in this important election."

I really can't tell if this person is in on the joke or not.

When you said he was bad as a black man I actually thought you had something substantive to say, like that he didn't adequately support black causes or something. No, you were more like he doesn't eat enough watermelon. Now that I think of it, I should have known better. It's WND after all.

This version has less smart-talk in it.

Obama is bad. Not in the other use of the word bad, which means that he is actually cool. He is simply bad. He is a bad president. He is a bad black man. He is a bad not-capitalist. He is a bad peace guy. He is a bad American. And lastly, he is bad for USA and the Earth.

People who love Obama and voted for him last time should say that he has been a bad president. Even though Obama says he had a good presidential run for president, the ocean waters did not go out from the beach, and the Earth is not feeling better, even though we are at the last year of Obama being president. Of even more badness to Americans, the amount of money we owe to people is the same and also the USA economy has not begun to feel better.

I can't decide whether you should write the follow-up column "But Romney is Worse" to shock and dismay WND readers who think they've suddenly found a new prophet, or leave it an unstated inside joke for those who know how you think.

Since there's no chance you'll change the minds of the mushy middle voters who will decide the election (and frankly wouldn't care if you could), it all comes down to artistic judgment. Which is the more exquisite jest - writing the column or not?

I'm leaning toward not. I think.

Surely this column will make you as popular as Rush himself among those for whom Obama's epic badness is sufficient excuse to vote for someone who is just as bad, but with good Republican hair.

Farah's been pretty supportive of Vox's wayward ways in the past. I think a properly written article making that case would get through.

I'd have a hard time making a convincing argument that Romney is worse than Obama though. Equally bad, I think I could argue, but not worse.

Now, that a Romney presidency might be worse, that's another matter. That depends on the outcome of the house and senate races, and if the r party takes both houses (as I expect), then a Romney presidency could be far worse for the country.

1. Compliant House will follow Romney, liberal Senate goes along since Romney's policies are collectivist.
2. More of the same results in absolute disaster. Conservatives and libertarians are blamed for causing problem even though their supposed leader, Romney, wouldn't recognize a conservative or a libertarian if Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul took turns bitch slapping him with his own magic knickers. See, e.g. Hoover and the first Great Depression.

At least Obama is bad at governing. If the alternative is an efficient totalitarian banker's pet oligarch, it will be worse than the Clintonesque triangulation done badly neocon and banker's pet. The upside to another Obama term is that the collapse would be swifter, surer, and more complete. If anyone can get the minorities that Pat Buchanan complain will be permanent democratic votes to look at the party with a generation long revulsion, it would be Obama.

I originally thought the GOP was going the way of the Whigs - irrelevant. But the liberty faction is reinventing it. The Democrats now have a bad democrat as the leader - and have been purging true liberals. (Had Obama closed GITMO and prosecuted at least a few token bankers and was at least a mediocre liberal, he would likely be at least supported by his base).

Throwing acid on your base will get a vigorous reaction, but not the one you want.

The problem with the election is not that Obama is bad, but like Wadsworth's little girl with the curl, he is horrid. Yet he is the devil you know. Sweeping the place clean to have 7 devils more evil than the one evicted would not be a gain.

Under Obama's protective wing, the Jihadists are racing for parity with the nuclear powers. Their main worry is that Obama might not get re-elected, leaving them too little time for Amageddon.

I don't practice religion but I've been reading about that part of the world and I'm struck by how in-your-face the Islamists were. For instance, they knew the Western Wall was important to Jews and they built a mosque on it. They knew the Garden of Gethsemene was important to Cristians and they built a mosque right in it.

Romney's health care plan laid the groundwork for Obamacare. Romney is still in bed with the financial giants. Romney is a about more War. Romney is going to give amnesty to Mexicans.

Romney is a businessman and having principles, is bad for business just ask the Chik-fil-A CEO. Romney has spent his life navigating Political Correctness. Romney is no different. He is the lesser of two evils and that makes him still Evil. Romney is Bush III. Romney and his Mormons are Diversity/Tolerance hogs/princes. Romney will do nothing on race but exacerbate the issue and kill more WASPs because he will give amnesty to illegals, bring in more immigration and will NOT stop immigration whatsoever because that's---RACISS.

Romney is guided by political correctness. You can't advance in Business or in Politics without hewing to the Political Correct line. Political Correctness is killing American culture, killing the WASP hegemony--on purpose but Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II---and Bush III (Romney), all "WASPs", still engaged in Political Correctness. Politics is driven by Culture, by the Narrative. The Narrative is the values and judgements.

Romney is NOT going to go against Political Correctness--Hence his very downright Evil. Romney is as Evil as Bush II, As Clinton, As Bush I, as Reagan ever was!

Let America Go to Hell! Electing Obama or Romney is NOT going to stop it. Let it Go! Forget it! You are NOT going to turn the country around with Romneynuts. Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils is NOT going to stop the slide into disaster.

There is absolutely NO reason, NO reason to vote for Romneynuts. Let it go to Hell.

Vox consistently has been telling you all that in Economics you must let the Bubble Burst. Well--the Logic still holds in Politics and America---Burst the Degeneracy Bubble of America by letting it all go. Don't Vote! Burst the Bubble. Collapse the System. Let the Left drive America into the Ground! To hell with America. To Hell with your damned Country. America is Sodom And Gomorrah!

With your bombing of Serbia, with Woodrow Wilson demanding the abdiction of the Christian monarchies of Habsburg and Germany---America has done nothing but cause death and destruction everywhere. You are MORONS. This country belongs on the Trash Heap of History. That a majority of white people elect, elect a black man over them---you are all emasculated nincompoops! Go to H*LL.

Seeing your Twitter post, on the opening ceremony. I had to look into Danny Boyle. Raised Irish Catholic, he was heading for the priesthood, but was talked out of it by a priest. His take: "All these directors — Martin Scorsese, John Woo, M. Night Shyamalan — they were all meant to be priests." The issue with charity popped up for me when the NHS tribute came up, some Westerners formerly raised Catholic (obviously) just think we have to force it, charity won't work because people won't believe and act. And that's merging with Jewish beliefs that there's no way back but through the moral laws. It's a powerful thing to subdue or even argue against. I was thinking that it can only be met with a forceful compromise because the failure of individualism is what gives them power in this world. But that's just me.

I simply loved this comment..you can practically taste the undercurrent of uncomfortable churchianity lashing out in the face of a nearly perceived threat...it's quite delicious:

This is the first time I have read a Vox Day column for a long time, since many of his choices of words disgusted me last time I read one of his articles. This time, I see the sentence, "Americans are born rebels, a people born in violent rebellion, who view authority with a suspicious and jaundiced eye." Talk about making sweeping declarations using a very broad brush!
Um, Mr. Day, you are pretty full of yourself, seems to me. You show a lack of scholarship regarding just exactly WHY many people sailed to the US, and continued to come here over the decades and centuries. MANY of them , including the earliest ones, the Pilgrims, were NOT violent and did NOT come here just as "rebels." Millions came simply for peaceful conditions to have freedom of worship! and/or economic opportunity, for crying out loud!! Since when do those things make someone "born a rebel?"
The American Revolution started after long and varied provocation. In fact, in spite of it all, many colonists were still very loyal to England and did not want to "rebel." Yet they stayed, and continued to build a future here.
I really take issue with what you have said here in this manner. Really strange and ridiculous wording, imo, especially for someone who is supposed to be "highly intelligent." I looked at this article because I truly cannot stand BO and wanted to see precisely what was about to be said regarding him this time around, but was too disgusted to even finish reading. Go worship yourself somewhere else, Mr. Day. I will happily skip reading further articles by you. I have too "jaundiced an eye" toward you for certain, now.


Good thing those British loyalists stayed to build a future for this moron. Otherwise, she might be forced to experience the unpleasantness of an independent thought. Quelle Horreur!

Lately, and I've emailed WND about this, they throw up a splash screen, right over what you're trying to read, that has no close check box that I can find. The screen says something about fighting the liberal whatever. I have to, or did, close WND and reenter the site. This seems to keep the screen quite for awhile.I think its probably something to increase the hit count on the site; much like what Drudge does with a refresh every few minutes and what the Blaze site has got into.

How the hell did it make it past the editor? After the many columns Vox has written this sticks out like a sore thumb. Are they simply so far on the Romney bandwagon that any satire against Obama is a good piece? Bravo, bravo!

July 30, 2012 11:43 AM Actually Wheeler... I don't know about where you are... but the Chick -fil-a near me is covered up in business. Its picked up since the "turmoil".


That goes double for me. We went into Chick-fil-a just a couple of days ago and there was standing room only and this was on a week day during slow hours.

I get a big kick out of this---You overthrow your own Monarchies only to have a Black Man rule you!!! How is that a "good"? I find that laughable. You overthrew your own, so a foreigner that hates you can rule over you!!!

You all talk of revolution---but you have ABSOLUTELY NO plan to counter Political Correctness. You can't fight Political Correctness. Your Religious leaders are betraying you. Both Catholic clergy and Protestant ministers have drunk the Enlightenment Koolaid! All the religious leaders are caught up in the Multiculti cult, diversity and tolerance. How's that Tolerance working out for you? I bet Romneynuts is going to increase that Tolerance for you!!!

You can't even REBUILD? America is a FAILED STATE. So you are going to "rebuild" America? You guys don't have a freakin' clue. What plan do you have? Softer liberalism?

Obama is only the REFLECTION of the State. Obama is America! Obama is the Poster Child of Obama!

Four More Years of Obama, Please!

Four More! Four More! Four More!

Haha, I had wondered when WLW would come out of the closet with his Greek Orthodox conversion. Took some time, it did. Probably shouldn't have tough-talked about Catholic supremacy so much...

Anonymous Curlytop July 30, 2012 3:47 PM  

Ha! You wrote the column. Well-done.

Surely that deal with Fox is on the horizon! ;-)

A simple scan of the comments section is truly amusing in a "whistling past the gallows" sort of way. One question: when you cook up the poison virus in your lab, do we get advanced notice of the great price for the antidote?

Look at the bright side, Wheeler. I'm pretty sure hysterectomies will be covered under Obamacare. You should get on the waiting list for yours, now.

Same here! I've never seen it so crowded before. Eat Mor Chiken!


I don't see Progressivism going anywhere. They'll always have the screed "never enough, more should have been done".

Vox, I wasn't 100% sure you'd write it, but you did. So now whats the next step?

Wait on Fox News....

SB, how does Vox look in a skirt & blonde wig?

Anonymous Josh July 30, 2012 5:40 PM  

Clay,

He would probably look like a more feminine ann coulter...

Blogger Desert Cat July 30, 2012 5:43 PM  

I am trying so very hard not to LMAO here at work. You did it, and they published it...

Clearly the WND editors do not check up on the blogs of their writers.

No way... That would be Spacebunny.

Vox would look like a really buff oompa loompa with a mohawk.

Anonymous Josh July 30, 2012 5:51 PM  

Vox ain't orange, though.

Maybe he's an albino oompa loompa?

Of course, it's rumored that there is photographic evidence of what nate looks like in drag...

Anonymous ENthePeasant July 30, 2012 5:55 PM  

As I'm reading the column VD's cleverness is lost on me as I can't help but think of Bardi's article on destruction through ever great complexity. Obama and Mittens see themselves as making us eat different types of river rock so that we'll defecate low interest loans, which will lead to higher rates of consumption and wages. I'm not looking forward to what's coming.

Good Lord.

Well Vox, you did indeed call it. Well played.

Congrats. And I'm sorry.

Headlines from the current columns:

Why I'll eat chicken Wednesday
Obama's entrepreneurial Communist Manifesto
Crazy like a fox?
Obama believes he can't be wrong
Obama is bad

You're blending in now Vox. I bet it feels good to finally be part of a team.

The mohawk would definitely be a nice touch.

Good grief... I was shooting for my comment to be outlandish, Vox replacing Beck on Fox, but after looking at the current comments, I see it became mundane. Drudge is next on he populi virus time table.

So, do you have a schedule for your publication and book signing on "Obama Is Bad" yet?

Stop being such an uppity pansy. Do you really look down on all the conservatives that way? Don't answer that. Prick.

To reprise Wilde:

The only thing funnier than writing the follow-up column "But Romney is Worse" is . . . not writing it.

Resist.

Anonymous Koanic July 31, 2012 11:06 AM  

Mostly it's in the headline, not paragraph 13. The hed was lackluster. I would've rewritten as, "Obama is bad at everything, even being black"

Anonymous Luke July 31, 2012 12:41 PM  

Fair piece showing how Romney may actually somewhat have his s**t together, at least as a manager:

What expatriates of this country have to say about what still happens here is immaterial to me. They are deserters who have left the rest of us upon the battlefield of liberty and their opinions don't mean a fart in the wind.

Blogger R. Bradley Andrews July 31, 2012 5:56 PM  

Sarcasm often has a strong element of truth in it, which may taint this experiment.

...says the Anonymous Coward who nevertheless finds the words of the proprietor of this blog to be sufficiently compelling that he comes in here to declare how very meaningless he pretends them to be.

Vox is doing more for the cause of liberty in this nation while safely ensconced in his Italian villa, than a thousand of your fellow ankle-biters, members all of the 101st Keyboard Brigade, could ever do.

The guy who noticed the water shoshing in the lower deck hallway of the cruise ship and took the first lifeboat off while others listened to the Captain assure them the ship's basic functions were fundamentally strong even as the water level continued to rise . . . is a deserter?

Save me a spot on that lifeboat, Vox.
