What Would Churchill Say?

Sir Winston Churchill was born 135 years-ago on this day. Sadly, we already know what our current misguided president thinks of him... Obama made clear his contempt for this great man and friend of America when he sent his bronze bust on display at the White House back to London his first full month in office, in March '09. 

He then replaced it with one of MLK -surely due to the fact that his father's (and possibly his own) native land of Kenya was once a British colony.

This flippant act -apparently based on Obama's weird historical grudges- shocked and dismayed allied patriots on both sides of the Atlantic- but was to be only the first in a number of seemingly-intentional slights directed against America's closest ally. So what might the ol' bulldog have thought of Obama...? 

Quoth Churchill: 

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." 


"If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law." 


"An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last" 


"The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries." 


"Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things. " 


"Do not let spacious plans for a new world divert your energies from saving what is left of the old." 


"To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day." 


"However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results." 


"Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma." 


"There is no such thing as a good tax." 


LOL, well not much apparently- and just maybe BHO should have read something besides left-wing rabble-rousing manuals and works of other disgruntled subversives back when he was forming his warped world-view... could have saved us all a lot of (ongoing) grief.

Sir Winston Churchill — on loan from the British Embassy after the 9/11 attacks,

Thanks Anon- I fixed it.

You are correct, except for the "making it up" part... I read it elsewhere, and this source was misworded. It should have stated it was created 50 yrs ago by a British sculptor, not loaned then.

Looks like Tony Blair loaned it-
