Obama the Cowardly Lion Receives Courage Award


Obama, the most cowardly president in our history, was presented with the Courage Award. I find this so hard to believe, since he did not have the courage to stand up to any of our enemies. Instead, he sent them gifts, such as money and weapons. In fact, the only thing Obama had the “courage” to do was put men in the women’s bathrooms. So tell me, why did our former, spineless president receive this award? It’s almost as bad as Bruce Jenner receiving the “Woman of the Year” award.

As if that were not already enough of a slap in the face, Obama then has the audacity to encourage congress to have courage to stand up against President Trump and Republicans. He said, “I hope that current members of Congress recall that it actually doesn’t take a lot of courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential — but it does require some courage to champion the vulnerable and the sick and the infirm.”

This is all in response to a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which democrats believe will reduce heath care for many people, while also cutting taxes for the rich. He continued, “I hope they understand that courage means not simply doing what is politically expedient, but doing what they believe deep in their hearts is right.”

Boston Globe reports:

“These men and women did the right thing. They did the hard thing. Theirs was a profile in courage. Because of that vote, 20 million people got health insurance who didn’t have it before,” he said to applause. “And most of them did lose their seats.”

The president also offered a broader call for people to push back against the pull of parochialism.

“Everywhere, we see the risk of falling into the refuge of tribe, clan, and anger at those who don’t look like us, or have the same surname, or pray the way we do,” he said. “And at such moments, courage is necessary. At such moments, we need courage to stand up to hate — not just in others, but in ourselves.”

Obama received the award, created to honor the country’s 35th president, for his overall contributions to public life, including his achievements on key policy issues and his historic victory as the nation’s first African-American president, according to the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, which administers the award.

So basically all he received an award for was being the first African-American president, because he sure as heck didn’t have any achievements on “key policy issues” or have any significant contributions to public life. The only thing about Obama, and I’ll give him this, is that he is a smooth talker. Even if everything coming out of his mouth is crap, he knows how to deliver it in a way that makes many people want to listen.
