Barack, I’m actually sorry to say this. You seem like a nice guy, your family is pretty cool. I’ve met better, but heck, you’re the President. As Presidential families go, your’s isn’t too shabby. But man, and I say it that way because I’m older and of the opinion that no man is better than any other, just equal, you have set yourself up as the biggest hypocrite ever.
First, let’s review what constitutes a hypocrite. According to Wikipedia:
“Hypocrisy is the act of pretending to have beliefs, opinions, virtues, feelings, qualities, or standards that one does not actually have. Hypocrisy is thus a kind of lie. Hypocrisy may come from a desire to hide from others actual motives or feelings”
I am putting a question mark next to “biggest hipocrite ever” because you still have a chance to avoid that. But to be clear, nothing cements your hypocticial conundrum more than this:
You see, the problem Mr. President, is that many of us know the truth. We know why our country invaded Afghanistan. We know all about the practiced imperialism of this country and the reasons behind it. So you must also know that when history is written, it eventually ends up as the truth.
So it’s your choice Mr. President. By the way, you can call me Mr. Citizen, because I’ve earned it, just as you’ve earned me calling you Mr. President. Your choice is to go down in history as the biggest hypocrite in history, or immediately change course and save your reputation, not to mention large numbers of people on this earth.
Any actor can stand at attention, slowly present a choreographed salute, and show a serious sign of concern. We all know you’re a good actor. But in the end, it doesn’t mean shit if we continue, and escalate the illegal occupation of Afganistan to establish a compliant government and country sufficient to maintain permanent military bases and a strong CIA backed opium trade.
Pressure’s on Mr. President, what kind of legacy do you want?
