What Lies Beneath?

A pretty face may hide an evil mind and fine words may hide a cruel heart. What lies beneath the surface is much more important because it is the truth, however ugly, cold, and evil.

What lies beneath the well-crafted facade of Obama and his cultists? Who or what do they truly serve?
Ph’nglui Mglw’nafh Obama R’lyeh Wgah’nagl Fhtagn

Too few Americans really asked what lay beneath the fine but largely empty words of Obama in 2008 and, in failing to ask, they allowed the Liberals and their minority tenants to place Obama in the Presidency.

It is of existential imperative that Americans ask that question now instead of hiding in ignorance, thinking that all will be well and that the darkness is ready to consume them, their children, and their children’s children.

Freed from his chains of needing to be reelected, what will Obama do if he’s allowed to stay in the White House for four more years?

    Jonolan,

    I like the illustration. I generally know most obscure references, but not this one.

    If you mean the foreign (fantastic actually) quote captioning the image, I’m not too surprised you don’t recognize it. You’d have to be a fan of old science fiction and horror stories to recognize it.

    Phnglui Mglwnafh Cthulhu Rlyeh Wgahnagl Fhtagn means, “In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” It’s from H.P. Lovecraft.

    I’ve heard of Lovecraft, just never got interested in his books. I was actually a fan of one of his friends Robert E. Howard. When I was in that phase of my reading life a cool book cover got my attention. Frank Frazetta’s artwork got me to pick up literature I would not have otherwise.

  4. jonolan Says:

    Yeah, I liked Howard too and the world got a bit more drab and dreary when he died far too young. He was only 30!

    As for Frank – I miss him. Here’s a sampling of his book-covers for the sake of reminiscence though.
