Well, I respect kos readers to not be totally surprised by this but I was listening to
Dinesh on book tv and I was like wow! what a load of crap!! I only caught the last few minutes of it, but so much crap was there, there's really no excuse to give him some money
and watch his movie, even if it's just to complain about it more here.
Ok so central thesis:
Obama wants America smaller multicultural, happier sending money over seas, having small military, so Americans can have little gardens of petunias and retire in small obscurity, while we're there we can stop taking up more resources per person than say India. This is proven because Obama traveled a lot when young. As far as focusing on helping the poor in other countries, there's some evidence Mitt Romney actually done that, by taking apart american factories piece by piece and sending our jobs there.
Evidence gutting the military: None.
here's a chart of world wide military spending no one comes close, no ones gonna come close to american military spending.
There is no evidence at all that Obama's going to meaningfully reduce Americas overall resource utilization or turn america into a third world country. So there.
Oh then he raises this hopeless canard that white liberals love Obama because well, it fixes
white insecurities about racism. It illustrates someone so out of touch they can't even imagine an alternative worldview without presuming it's based in some preposterous character flaw. Obama is hell bent on destroying america he steadfastly believes,
but Ryan's budget actually does take down medicare replaces it with vouchers, and guts
medicaid on which the old depend for chronic care. Throwing Grandma over the cliff is too charitable an image for their plan. War with Iran? That's another of Romney's real winner
plans. Don't get me started that we helped him pay for his little ballet horse. Then Romney pretended to not care when it was in the olympics, whatever you fake weird martian.
Finally, Dinesh had these weird questions from his screw loose audience, like "we know Obama wasn't american", and "When Obama elects himself for a third term", if he had any shred of decency he would smack that crap down. He has none. He's a coward, and an asshole.
The world needed to know.
