Country Music Legend Scorches Obama: ‘Your Petulance is Unbecoming’

Country music legend and American patriot Charlie Daniels penned a scorching open letter this week to Obama, sharply criticizing America’s first Marxist president for “petulance” that is “downright unmanly.”

The “Devil Went Down to Georgia” singer began by blasting Obama’s anti-American class warfare rhetoric, explaining to Obama that he came from very humble beginnings, and that it was blessings and guidance from God, not big government, including a dose of hard work, that led to the success he’s had in life:

“And no, Mr. President, I was not born into a one-percenter family, I come from a blue collar background, never went to college, have made a living doing manual labor and went into my chosen profession at ground level, worked hard and sacrificed to achieve success.

On April 13, 1967 I arrived in Nashville, Tennessee with a wife, a two-year-old baby, a twenty-dollar bill and the clutch out of my car.

I won’t go into the mountains and valleys that I’ve traveled since then except to say that I have been successful and somebody did help me build the business I own. Almighty God, not the government.”

Daniels then took a well-deserved shot at Obama’s hateful and bigoted 2008 “bitter clinger” remark in which he went all Saul Alinsky on small town America and Christians, saying that they “cling to guns or religion.”

“I employ thirty people, good citizens and family people, hard-working people, the kind of gun-clinging, God-fearing folks who make America the greatest nation the world has ever known.

Mr. President, it seems to me that you have little faith in American ingenuity, American capability, American exceptionalism and even American patriotism.

You seem to think that America needs a monolithic, big brother type government to oversee and regulate every aspect of American life, that citizens are not competent to control their own affairs and make their own decisions without some oppressive bureaucracy to call the shots.

Mr. President, the answer is not government, conversely, the problem is government. A government that has doubled the national debt, increased unemployment, lowered take home pay, increased food stamp participation and disability claims and introduced socialized medicine.”

Daniels points out that Obama outright lied about his support for redefining the longstanding definition of marriage to include homosexuals, and continues to shamefully lie “whenever it is politically expedient for you to do so.”

“You intentionally lied to the American people about your stand on marriage being between a man and woman, and continue to lie when it is politically expedient for you to do so.

You surround yourself with inexperienced ideologues and political yes men and take the advice of individuals who are swimming in waters way too deep for them.

Your petulance is unbecoming, Mr. President, and your criticism of anyone who disagrees with you is downright unmanly. You come off like a spoiled child who has been denied his way.

Daniels isn’t creating that accusation out of thin air. On February 10, the leftist Washington Post reported that former top Obama adviser David Axelrod admitted that Obama lied about his support for gay marriage.

The Grand Ole Opry inductee then reminded Obama that while he blames Republicans for his failures, he had a full two years where Democrats controlled both the Houses of Congress and could have implemented anything that his heart desired. Daniels called Obama out for his immature blame games:

“And while you blame your shortcomings on opposing political parties, you had both houses of congress and the White House in the first two years of your term. Plus an electoral mandate to do just about anything you wanted to, so the least you can do is cowboy up and take the blame for the messes you’ve made.”

Daniels then appropriately shifted to Obama’s mistreatment of the military as well as his treasonous foreign policy which enriches America’s enemies while punishing long-term allies like Israel:

“Your apparent disregard for the maintenance and morale of our armed services is extremely unwise and dangerous.

Mr. President, the office you hold is not a place for the faint of heart and when you draw a red line you’d dang well better be willing to back it up, because when you don’t every tyrant and despot in this world takes it for a sign of weakness and will take advantage, Putin and China being a prime example.

In making any kind of deal with Iran you spit in the face of Israel and plant the seeds of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.”

Regarding ISIS, Daniels argued that “the greatest nation the world has ever known is losing a war with a small army of criminals and thugs” because Obama doesn’t “have the guts to face the problem.”[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]
Daniels advised Obama that he must be “running out of diversions” and that the “slight of hand political policies eventually stop working” and that the “lies finally float to the top of the water.”

Well put, Mr. Daniels, except with Obama, his policies never did work.
