Baby Jane Hudson is living in the White House. Her stage name is now Barack Obama.
Film fans will recall the garish Bette Davis Hollywood horror about a very aged elderly former child star who cannot let go of the spotlight of earlier days and yearns to return to the glory days of center stage. Like Baby Jane Hudson, Obama is unwilling to forgo the spotlight or the warming dream which is the Klieg lit stage.
As “cold” and “ungrateful” Michelle Obama shops for her “fashion icon” clothes at the hospital emergency room and her “fashion forward” accessories at auto supply stores her “selfish” and “careerist” Baby Jane Husband will continue to oppress the nation with ceaseless publicity stunt appearances.
Caroline Kennedy Barack Obama is Baby Jane Hudson:

Maybe Barack Obama is a racist or maybe Obama just does not like other black men, or maybe Obama wants to be the only (half) African-American male on the political stage but, as we wrote yesterday, Obama is out to get rid of African-American New York Governor David Paterson – after bouncing Illinois successor Senator Roland Burris, another African-American male off the stage. What does Obama have against black men? Should Deval Patrick be worried that Baby Jane will start to kick him soon too?
We don’t know the answers to the above. We do know that Governor Paterson is defiant and intends to run – just like Joe Sestak against Obama Republican favorite Benedict Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania.
Maybe David Letterman, who will donate the full hour of his show to Obama tonight, will ask the Baby Jane Husband about Governor Paterson and throw Baby Jane Obama off message – again.
Remember, the message is supposed to be about health insurance and to “razzle-dazzle” Americans from finding out Obama plans to steer billions of IRS enforced dollars to the insurance companies. Obama is supposed to talk about health insurance because as George Will channels Baby Jane Obama: ““Nothing wrong with the idea. It’s the packaging that’s wrong. People have seen too little of me.”
If Obama refuses to confess his thugs are out to get Paterson, there is still the possibility of more Obama boobery. Maybe David Letterman will witness another Obama “special Olympics” blooper which Big Media will help cover up or explain away.
Maybe Dave will ask Obama about his “read my lips, no new taxes” on the middle class pledge?
In the most contentious exchange of President Barack Obama’s marathon of five Sunday shows, he said it is “not true” that a requirement for individuals to get health insurance under a key reform plan now being debated amounts to a tax increase.
But he could look it up — in the bill.
Page 29, sentence one of the bill introduced by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont) says: “The consequence for not maintaining insurance would be an excise tax.”
And the rest of the bill is clear that the Finance Committee does, in fact, consider it a tax: “The excise tax would be assessed through the tax code and applied as an additional amount of Federal tax owed.”
The bill requires every American, with few exceptions, to carry health insurance. To enforce this individual mandate, the Senate Finance Committee created the excise tax as a penalty for people who don’t have insurance – and it can run as much as $3,800 a year per family.
The House bill also refers to the penalties for not carrying insurance as a tax. It calls for a “tax on individuals without acceptable health care coverage” and amends the tax code to implement it.
The questions from ABC’s George Stephanopoulos highlighted a politically dangerous new aspect of the health reform debate for Obama – as critics from Republican leaders to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce say his reform proposals amount to a middle-class tax increase. Obama promised during the campaign that Americans earning less than $250,000 a year would not see any tax increases from an Obama administration.
Maybe Dave could ask Obama about another category of Obama lies such as the Obama lies of 2008 versus the Obama lies of 2009. Here’s a video for Dave of resource material if he decides to ask a non-fluff question:
Because he is in showbiz David Letterman well understands faded stars clinging bitterly to the Klieg lights. Perhaps Dave will ask Obama about his faded glory and how world leaders have contempt for Obama.
Maybe Dave will ask Obama why the protesters at the G-8, or is it now G-10, or G-20 will get respect from Dimocrats but the Tea Party protesters are denounced and ridiculed and disrespected? That’s right, later this week (September 24-25) in Pittsburgh Obama will be mouthing more words in front of the Klieg lights to guffaws and sotto voce insults from world leaders (after Obama sits cozily with Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi of Lockerbie infamy at the United Nations Security Council) at the G-20 meeting.
Please Dave, ask Obama about his craving need for publicity and publicity stunts and “the people have seen too little of me” mentality. Please Dave, amuse us with with the showbiz relevant “overexposed” question:
The White House doesn’t buy the notion that President Obama, who appeared on five talk shows Sunday and is heading next for David Letterman’s couch, could be wearing out his welcome on the tube.
Sure, this is a president who has dissected basketball brackets on ESPN, gone for burgers with Brian Williams, showed Steve Kroft his swing set, dissed Kanye West (off the record) with CNBC and ordered a general to shave Stephen Colbert’s head. By that standard, Obama’s Sunday blitz was a mere throat-clearing that, as it turned out, produced little in the way of big news. And some journalists — even as they continue to clamor for access — say he is diluting the product. [snip]
So did Obama score?
While the White House plan was for Obama to focus primarily on health care and Afghanistan, he broke no new ground on either subject, repeating points he has made many times.
That’s a nice way of saying “Obama is a bore.” Celebrity Obama is a starlet with no new films to promote but who wants to appear on TV chat shows anyway just to feel the Klieg light heat.
Baby Jane Hudson or Norma Desmond – as we have compared Obama to before?
For sure Americans are tired of Obama and his craving need to get attention.
Baby Jane Hudson or Norma Desmond?
Both were dragged off stage by the police.
Obama deserves nothing less than to be dragged off the stage – screaming.
