The Very Model of a Modern U.S. President

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — clgood @ 8:50

The brilliance of this piece is that it works either way. It could be one of those pro-Obama things that only looks anti-Obama, or it could be the most sly anti-Obama thing in weeks. Many commenters on YouTube apparently think He really is the very model. When I watch this I see His clueless arrogance on parade.

Like I said, brilliant.

It’s the Arrogant Cuttlefish!

Watch Obama spew ink in His response to this racist.

Note how, at least twice, He claims to have “passed” legislation. Man, with this guy it’s always about “me, me me”. Note also that He never actually answers the questions.

He may talk like a thug

but at least He’s self-centered.

“If we turn out in strong numbers, then we will do fine. If we do not, if we are depressed and decide, well, you know, Barack’s not running right now, so I’m just going to stay home, then I’m going to have my hands full up here on Capitol Hill.”

Why So Serious?

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — clgood @ 20:40

Both of my regular readers probably wonder why this blog hasn’t mentioned the whole Obamacare debacle. Well, I’ve been busy, and it’s been easier to vent on Facebook and Twitter. On both places I’ve tried arguing constitutionality with liberals, who spit, sputter, call names, and simply cannot undertake to lay their fingers, either, on the part of the constitution authorizing this mess.

I felt pretty awful there as, I’m sure, many of you did. Just now, though, I had my first good laugh about the situation. It’s in Allapundit’s musical question, GOP to Dems: Will you join us in voting to ban Viagra for sex offenders?

The idea is that by securing even a slight adjustment in the language, the Senate will have to send the bill back to the House of Representatives for reconsideration. Drawing out the process makes it more likely for it to be tripped up.

On Tuesday, the GOP put its strategy into action, with Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okl.) introducing an amendment beyond agreeable. Titled “No Erectile Dysfunction Drugs To Sex Offenders” it would literally prohibit convicted child molesters, rapists, and sex offenders from getting erectile dysfunction medication from their health care providers.

While it will undoubtedly be difficult for Democrats to vote against the measure (one can conjure up the campaign ads already), the party plans to do just that.

“Democrats in the Senate are very unified that this is not going back to the House,” Sen. Wyden (D-Ore.) told the Huffington Post on Tuesday, minutes before the Coburn amendment was introduced.

Allapundit adds:

Everyone get the joke here? If the Dems amend the reconciliation bill for any reason, they have to send it back to the House for yet another vote. So anything the GOP proposes — anything — they’re basically bound to vote no on. And Coburn knows it. One tasty shinola sandwich, coming up! Although I’m confused: If, as the left has convinced itself, ObamaCare is pure win for them politically (see, e.g., today’s ridiculously overhyped Gallup poll), what’s the aversion to another House vote? In fact, why not ping-pong the bill back and forth between the chambers for another month, loading it up with ever more crowd-pleasing amendments? It’s time to own the glorious political victory that looms in November, liberals.

An emailer to Instapundit writes:

Maybe an entire raft of amendments simply praising American soldiers for their victory in Iraq, praising motherhood and apple pie, praising puppies and kittens. By God I’d have a thousand of them and raise them one at a damned time…or until they made me stop.

Oh, and there’s this.

Two Brazilian Soldiers Killed

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — clgood @ 11:40

The President was just informed that two Brazilian soldiers were killed in Afghanistan.

He collapsed into a state of shock, slumping over his desk. Once He regained his composure he tearfully asked, “So exactly how many is a brazilian?”

When Arrogance and Incompetence Collide

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — clgood @ 14:14

You get brilliant diplomacy.

Who knows? Under a Commander in Chief like that, Navy SEALS might even go on trial for punching a barbarian they should have just killed. All on the word of the barbarian in question, of course.

Or you might even find rubes willing to spend five dollars on a button.

Update:

Some good points about the SEALs from an Army officer.

I suspect that by asking for a court-martial instead of non-judicial
punishment, the SEALs are maintaining that they are absolutely innocent of striking the detainee after he was subdued.  They would be foolish to do this as a “How dare we get punished for one little punch” statement — they know that a court-martial will only assess the binary “did it happen/did it not happen” aspect and not whether it’s a big deal in the grand cosmic scheme of things.  And being found guilty at court-martial, even for a single punch, would be devastating for anyone’s future.  I think the SEALs will argue that the bloody lip was caused 1) by someone else at the detention center or 2) by the detainee himself, who knows the knots we tie ourselves in over these kinds of things.

Finally, I’d submit that someone who got punched in the face by a Navy SEAL would probably end up with much, much worse than a bloody lip.

Strange Definition of “Safe Schools”

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — clgood @ 8:25

Years ago a man arrived in Australia. The immigration agent was reviewing his documents and asking a few questions. One was, “Do you have a criminal record?”

The man responded, “I didn’t know you still needed one.”

The Messiah’s vetters seem to be channeling that old joke.

Let’s be clear: Kevin Jennings let a potentially terminally-ill minor and a victim of rape walk out of his office, and Jennings never reported the incident to the boy’s parents, the school nurse, the police, or anyone who might help protect this child. This Kevin Jennings is President Obama’s new “safe schools czar.”

Which reminds me of something I’ve been wondering of late. Just how naive and gullible is the average Messiah voter? I never, never understood how anybody could be taken in by such an obvious flim-flam man. My confusion at the anti posters that turned out to be pro is already documented. I mean, gee. A few minutes of watching this guy on TV and it’s blindingly clear that He’s a three-dollar bill. So how did He pull this off?

It’s obvious that His staff believes in Him to the point of risible tone-deafness. I don’t get it.

When narcissistic arrogance meets systemic corruption expect trouble.

Far from bolstering his flagging image, the president’s group-hug theory of diplomacy deserves the disdain of anyone who can separate rhetoric from reality.

Michelle Can Haz Cheezburger

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — clgood @ 17:42

I think she asked the Secret Service to do something illegal.

“Three starving Secret Service guys were literally standing over the grill as Spike made the burgers, but didn’t eat,” our source adds. Fellow patrons had their cellphones temporarily confiscated to prevent pictures from being taken.

Transparency, riiiiiight.

Meanwhile, here’s a message for her husband, The Messiah: It’s the Big Government, Stupid.

This isn’t about liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican. A majority oppose Obama’s policies because they fly in the face of this country’s bedrock values of personal liberty and limited government. Robbing Peter to pay Goldman Sachs does violence to that fundamentally American ethos.

No Leg to Stand On

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — clgood @ 8:39

This Messiah, the one my coworker called “F***ing brilliant” has, once again, shown his scissor-like grasp of the facts.

—  Yesterday during a town hall meeting, President Obama got his facts completely wrong. He stated that a surgeon gets paid $50,000 for a leg amputation when, in fact, Medicare pays a surgeon between $740 and $1,140 for a leg amputation.  This payment also includes the evaluation of the patient on the day of the operation plus patient follow-up care that is provided for 90 days after the operation.  Private insurers pay some variation of the Medicare reimbursement for this service.

—  Three weeks ago, the President suggested that a surgeon’s decision to remove a child’s tonsils is based on the desire to make a lot of money. That remark was ill-informed and dangerous, and we were dismayed by this characterization of the work surgeons do.  Surgeons make decisions about recommending operations based on what’s right for the patient.

Not so fast.

[T]he Joker seemed chaotic but was very careful in his planning, while the chaos from the Obama administration seems much more explainable by pure incompetence.

We’re In The Best of Hands

Did Timmy “Tax Cheat” Geithner say this with a straight face?

“When we have recovery established, led by the private sector, then we have to bring these deficits down very dramatically,” he told ABC’s “This Week” in an interview broadcast Sunday. “And that’s going to require some very hard choices. And we’re going to have to do that in a way that does not add unfairly to the burdens that the average American already faces.”

Are you getting the impression that this administration is just, you know, making this up as it goes along?

A photo like this could have been taken and used by an agency that wanted to make a president look bad. But it wasn’t. It’s an official White House photo. Do they really think this makes Him look good?

Saturation

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — clgood @ 5:58

Allahpundit makes the case (via Twitter) that The Messiah will hold a photo-op “anywhere, and I do mean anywhere.”

One lady has figured out how to keep seeing Him on “every channel and station“.

The Publisher of NewsBusters.org, Brent Bozell, wrote his syndicated column about the media’s full-court Obama press just this week.  In which he accurately points out that while the journalistic class remains utterly infatuated with the man, it appears that the American people are begining to reach their saturation point.

Gee, ya think?

The Obamedy Continues

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — clgood @ 6:36

You mean, we still have a reputation problem?

Now, do not confuse me with somebody who cares very much what editorialists in Der Spiegel or other outposts of the European chattering classes think of any American president. I could not care less, in no small part because I believe that the interests of such people generally diverge from mine own. I note, however, that many of the cosmopolitan Americans who voted for Barack Obama did so because they were embarrassed by the Bush administration’s reputation among foreigners, particularly European elites. They hated having to explain themselves over dinner in Paris, Brussels, and Frankfurt, and worried that most Europeans would not understand that we are not all unnuanced rubes. I therefore wonder how such people will react if anti-Obama sentiment in Europe grows to the point where they have to explain themselves all over again. Will they rise in Barack Obama’s defense, agree with the foreign critique but deny that they voted for him, or explode from the cognitive dissonance?

The possibilities for hilarity are not small.

Obama “Straight Face” Watch

The Messiah beheld the murder of the Holocaust Museum guard by a deranged racist and  deigned to pronounce:

This outrageous act reminds us that we must remain vigilant against anti-Semitism and prejudice in all its forms.

Amen. Let us all remain vigilant against anti-Semitism on the part of deranged racists.

The Messiah’s Sense of Humor

My guess is that they tell these “jokes” around the White House with straight faces.

“We have a joke around the White House: We’re just going to keep on telling the truth until it stops working. And nowhere is truth-telling more important than the Middle East.” –Barack Obama **”Apologies if that caused you to spew coffee on your keyboard.” –James Taranto

Hijab, Hajib, Whatever

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — clgood @ 15:30

Hitch on The Messiah’s Cairo speech.

Take the single case in which our president touched upon the best-known fact about the Islamic “world”: its tendency to make women second-class citizens. He mentioned this only to say that “Western countries” were discriminating against Muslim women! And how is this discrimination imposed? By limiting the wearing of the head scarf or hijab (a word that Obama pronounced as hajib—imagine the uproar if George Bush had done that). The clear implication was an attack on the French law that prohibits the display of religious garb or symbols in state schools. Indeed, the following day in Paris, Obama made this point even more explicitly.
