Not a joke: Huff Po’s ‘12 Reasons Why Obama is One of Best Presidents Ever’

What you are about to read is a much abbreviated version of a piece that appeared in the Huffington Post on November 15.

It was written by Matthew Lynch Ed.D. the author of, The Call to Teach: An Introduction to Teaching. (This appeared next to his name.)

It is disconcerting that as an educator, Mr. Lynch is filling innocent minds with this kind of mush. And we wonder why American students are falling behind the rest of the world.

Do yourself a favor and try to read the entire Huffington Post piece because you will not believe your eyes. But since time is short, start here:

12 Reasons Why Obama is One of the Best Presidents Ever

1. He is for The People. Say what you will about Barack Obama, but unlike the many presidents who preceded him, he cares about what is best for the greater good. He truly does represent The People.

2. He is for civil rights. He has consistently spoken on behalf of the disenfranchised, the underdog and the most controversial members of society -despite the fact that it was politically unpopular to do so at the time.

3. He is for one race – the human race. In just a few short years, Obama’s professional achievements and continued demonstration of equality and integrity have done wonders for race relations. America has never been more unified as a people than it has been under the direct leadership of Barack Obama.

4. He is for a healthcare system that brings hope and healing to the hurting. Obama’s healthcare plan has allowed uninsured Americans to reap the benefits of a universal healthcare system.

5. He is for the middle class. 

6. He is for women’s rights.

7. He is for doing away with pomp and circumstance. Let’s be real – Obama is one cool cat.

8. He is for the environment. President Barack Obama has taken a forward thinking approach to creating a red, white, blue and green America.

9. He is for veterans. 

10. He is for peace. Let us never forget that Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 -one of the greatest accomplishments any man or woman could hope to achieve in a lifetime.

11. He is for education. 

Finally, reason 12 and the last sentence of the piece are not abbreviated because if you are already rolling on the floor then this reason will keep you there. I repeat – this is not a joke.

12. He is for entertaining the masses. If we have to listen to a president yakitty-yak about this or that for another four years, we might as well pick one with charisma and charm. If you can’t find anything else appealing about Obama, you can’t deny the fact that the guy is an amazing speaker with wit, fantastic comedic timing and an incredible intellect. In fact, I will go so far as to say that when the man does finally retire from politics, he has a rewarding and lucrative job as a stand up comic awaiting him if he so chooses. When’s the last time you heard a president joke about drinking beer, belt out Al Green with poise and precision at a moment’s notice and admit to watching the Kardashians?

 If these 12 reasons aren’t enough to convince that president Obama is one of the best presidents ever, then you are not thinking objectively!

I am speechless, how about you?

  • justme

    I’m guessing there is no drug testing policy at this lady’s employment. And as for #12 the real jokes coming out of his mouth are when he is being serious. Guess u missed those punch lines.

    • RickSlaterStanford88

      This fake ID / Obama hater has no idea how ignorant he looks with this lame comment about drug testing. So typical of these tea party wackos to mask their true identity like digital Klan members.

      • justme

        Go smoke some pole a**wipe.

      • ItsYourTime

        Don’t waste your time Rick…The President is an ‘excuse’ for many reasons of hate. Why else would people behave so uncivil to others they don’t know…just because they have a different opinion?

        • Ed Sargent

          no time to waste, got to get rid of this lame excuse for a president who is not supposed to eligable for presidency with his fake birthcertificate and when it all comes out in the wash he will be in prison dick head

          • Doug

            Start a petition.

          • Doug

            Start a petition.

        • Holli1901

          The President isn’t an excuse for anything….as for “uncivil” Your Buddy Rick just likened someone he DOES NOT know to a KKK Member…But,I guess it’s ok to be intolerant as long as it’s directed at someone YOU disagree with too huh? smh

      • Ed Sargent

        you are a dick rick

        • NC Conservative

          I concur.

      • Holli1901

        Why is it that when someone dislikes Obama – they just have to be Tea Party member?? Grow up! As for the racist innuendo – stop making ASSumptions….I loathe his presidency and my son is mixed, so please, tell me I’m racist. As for the ID thing – seriously? That’s what you choose to notice? Not everyone needs or wants their real names on everything – every heard of identity theft? Or better yet, we don’t need internet attention to make us feel good about ourselves- use your Obamacare for some mental health help- but -I hope you don’t own a firearm bc I’m sure your shrink will report you and have it taken away. If you want to live in a country where YOU are paying for people to sleep around, there’s others that can accommodate you. Healthcare is a personal choice, not a GOD GIVEN RIGHT. If someone is looking for free birth control – tell them toclose their legs and zip their pants. Problem solved. If you think it’s ok that people who speak out against what the disagree with end up fired, black balled or dead, I hear N Korea has spots since they just murdered 80 people for having tv’s and watching something other than what the ALL KNOWING Pillsbury Dough Boy In Charge says is ok….I’m sick of people like you living on a self made pedestal, thinking it’s ok to call people racist and liken them to the KKK bc they disagree with a man about in his policies. You need to go home tonight and thank GOD that there are woman like me who are willing to defend your right to behave like a total and complete self centered, arrogant, intolerant jackass. If you approve of the Govt all up in your life – go live in a country that can accommodate you and leave mine alone.

        • Slappy McGee

          A fair percentage of Democrats I personally know, who voted for Obama in 2012, are now regretful and strongly against him. Their only excuse was that they don’t think Romney was any better

          • Bridges Hague

            in other words they were lazy and stupid.

      • David Burton

        … I only have one question for this idiot.

        How is justme “mask[ing] their true identity like digital Klan members” in a way that you aren’t? WE’RE ON THE INTERNET, ANONYMITY IS KIND OF A THING HERE!!!!

      • Sloppy Joe

        Tea partier here, not masking my identity. Obama is without a doubt the WORST occupant of the White House, EVER! And if you are in love with the guy, it speaks volumes of your integrity and intelligence….which is obviously zero.

        • Doug

          Who’s your top pick. James Woods or Chuck Norris?

          • Andrew

            I’d have to say Chuck

          • sharonhansen209

            Oh that is a tough one! I think James Woods is the hottee of the two but Chuck Norris is the guy I’d prefer to have watching my back.

      • robertdavidhummel

        Rick…You can bet your bottom Food Stamp Dollar that MY ID IS NOT FAKE…and the Fact of The Failed Leadership of Pres. Obama is SELF EVIDENT…Barack IS such a Likeable personality…BUT a Very Poor Leader…The TRUE CONSEQUENCES, have yet to come to Fruitition….we can only pray that Nov 2014 will be theFIRST STEP in the RIGHT DIRECTION to forstall and CEASE the PENDING DESTRUCTION of America.

        • art

          and ted bundy was likeable

          • robertdavidhummel

            And you middle name is “IAMDUMB, or..Ianintgot nosense”, cause Your a WONDERFUL and SELF-FULLFILLING DUMOCRAT?

  • SusieQ

    This could not be for real!!!!!! I’m gagging, OMG!

    • RickSlaterStanford88

      This fake ID / Obama hater limited education and low self esteem. To protect her fragile egos they insult and disparage the opinions of others.

      • Holli1901

        Here you go again with your ASSumptions Rick….does trolling the internet and talking about people make you feel like a man?? smh So sad. Haven’t you noticed that you are doing exactly what you are accusing others of doing? But, your an Obama Man so it’s ok,right? Ya know, double standard and all…you must be in Congress?

      • David Burton

        Your grammar offends me as both a writer and believer in the power of the written word. Your intelligence is not a sin, but if it were, the devil would be salivating.

      • robertdavidhummel

        GET THIS STRAIGHT RICK….”You are undoubtably the epitome of Ecrietnish prodogies”….Now go Look that of in your Funk & Waganall.

      • SusieQ

        Whatever Ricky, these twelve points of light are just spit-polishing a old shoe that lost all it’s shine.
        Never going to restore the sheen. Everyone knows the lies now there is no going back with this guy.What is that 98 for, the year you were born? That would explain a lot

    12 Reasons Why Obama is One of Best Presidents Ever

    1. He’s black.
    2. He’s black.
    3. He’s black.
    4. He’s black.
    5. He’s black.
    6. It’s never his fault.
    7. He’s black.
    8. He’s black.
    9. He’s black.
    10. He’s black.
    11. He’s black.
    12. He’s black.

    Oh, and did you know Obama is black?

    • RickSlaterStanford88

      This fake ID / Obama hater is unhappy with his life. And he blames others, particularly other ethnic and racial groups for his failures.

      Sorry – but it’s not the President’s fault that you are a loser.

      • Ed Sargent

        rick the dick

      • Holli1901

        And it’s not your moms fault your manhood is lacking…what’s your point? See, I can act like a toddler too – only I’m way cuter and an actual AMERICAN that likes the Constitution just the way it is.

    • Holli1901

      The man is NOT JUST BLACK!! He’s mixed – hello.

      • sharonhansen209

        I just read somewhere the other day that he’s actually less black than white. I think, and don’t quote me because I am going on memory here, but I think he’s 12% black, and the rest of the not white part is middle eastern I think I read. The major point is that he is less black than anything else. He does have a nice tan and when I saw a photo of him and Biden supposedly holding hands, it was difficult to tell which was which. There was a slight difference but hard to see without straining my eyes. I don’t know if the photo was legit or not.

  • RickSlaterStanford88

    President Obama has run through a difficult stretch. But all 12 reasons are true. And we would be well to remember them.

    • Mlm46

      If you really believe all those reasons, you are in LaLa Land! You believe what you WANT to believe and call others that don’t agree with you as haters. That’s a lame excuse. I am not unhappy with my life and don’t blame others because I have never been a failure. I like to see both sides, but this is the epitome of nonsense!

    • Holli1901

      And after all these years he’s still blaming Bush and whenever something happens – he didn’t know or he makes ASSumptions about situations that he shouldn’t be speaking on. Or we could just go with the latest one, He lied about keeping your healthcare. You may be ok with being lied to, but, the rest of us don’t particularly like it. You may get a tingle down your leg when he speaks or “signs another Executive Order” bc Congress won’t give him his way, but, the rest of us get bile in our throats. I have friends and family in Chicago and the Pentagon and I have to ask – how will you like the “fundamental change” when YOU are on the hit list – even after being such a loyal tool??

    • sharonhansen209

      In Rick’s defense, I think he must be joking. I don’t see how anyone could be that blind. Maybe he just enjoys getting people riled up. You know, a trouble maker. Class clown, that sort of thing. If you are serious Rick, you really should get out more.

    • Aaron Barnes

      most of those reason are lies. obama is a lair, never takes responsibly, he has the highest deportation of illegals, he not for vets. none of his policies have worked, the healthcare law is weakening the economy and unconstitutional i think and we haven’t had a budget for over 4 years just resolutions.

  • Ourania Seven

    I am speechless that drivel like this continues to ooze from people like Myra Adams. Shame, shame, shame.

    • David Russ Adams

      Myra was just reporting about a piece from the Huffington Post. Did you not understand that the “drivel” was NOT Myra’s opinion?

      • Ourania Seven

        Myra’s posting just part of the article in order to sing to the choir is drivel. The actual article is quite nice. Here’s part of what she didn’t post here: “I recognize that Obama has made more than one controversial decision and rocked the boat a time or two during his presidency. Sure, he has committed his share of blunders and tripped over his own words from time to time. But, there isn’t a president in American history who didn’t flub up big time at some point during his administration. While I acknowledge he has made a number of mistakes in recent years, I stand firm in my conviction that Barack Obama is one of the greatest presidents America has ever seen. I believe history will prove this, and with time, he will be remembered in the annals of history as a revered revolutionary.”

        Yep. That’s what I’ve been saying and will continue to say: time will tell. So relax. If you all are right, we will see. And if you all are on the wrong side of history, we shall also see.

  • George Blumel

    So, the Huffington Puffington Post is trying to outdo The Onion.Let’s see The Onion top that one!

    The author of that farcical piece is Matthew Lynch Ed.D who describes himself as an “award winning writer and activist” I bet his award is like Obama’s Nobel Prize –nothing to back it up. I do think he has outdone The Onion, tho –give him that much.

  • ItsYourTime

    Finally…someone gets it!

    • Slappy McGee

      And you obviously don’t commie

    • Ed Sargent

      yeah we get it, we get the scams he has pulled and we get the criminal investigation that will come and we get the impeachement that he deserves and we get the prison time he deserves

  • Slappy McGee

    These are mostly beyond ludicrous, but none more than #3 & #12. Obama has done more to divide people than ever. The races are more tense and at odds that they have been in decades, class envy has one group- the middle class being squeezed out of existence- and the lower class clinging to their government handouts more than ever in American history. He also has caused the greatest divide ever between the two major political parties with his refusal to even discuss any type of compromise on ANY issue. As far as #12, that attitude is all the evidence needed to prove that America has grown dumber than ever, and that grown-ups need to re-take the White House, hopefully well before 2016 by which time it may be too late.

  • William Manning

    He is a liar, A communist and a fraud.

  • William Manning

    I think he is on crack, I really do

    • Doug

      My sources say he spends a lot of time with Mayor Ford.

      • sharonhansen209

        Who’s Mayor Ford?

        • Doug

          Mayor of Toronto. Watch the news.

          • sharonhansen209

            Oh yes, I remember seeing something about that. I didn’t pay any attention since Toronto is in another country. I rarely watch the news but pick up a bit when I walk into the room and my husband is watching. Thanks Doug.
