We’re still laughing and clapping our gloves off. The Olympic judges in Copenhagen scored Obama as a Big Zero. No doubt the Hopium addled will yell we are “racists” and “anti-American” (believe it or not “anti-American” is the latest circus epithet flung at those who deny Obama is the Messiah).
We’re laughing and clapping at the ostentatious display of boobery. Michelle goes for the “gold” in another bizarre concoction with a bow in a hideous, lemonish color, frock as Obama moaned in his tiresome outfit about how wonderful it would be to walk from his Rezko financed house to watch javelin throwers and gymnasts in a Chicago Corruption-palooza. All this while the American financial house burns and deaths in Afghanistan mount.
The Hopium addled are still astroturfing and fabricating defenses for Obama’s boobery. Obama worshipers are charging “politics” stole the laurel wreaths from their colossal buffoon. Other’s mock reality by blaming George W. Bush. Other parishioners of Obama Church shake as they assert “it does not really matter after all, no one was surprised, it was to be expected”.
But the Waterloo at Hopenhagen cannot be denied. The New York Times chronicles the boobery:
How much it cost taxpayers to fly Air Force One and its backup plane, transport the armored presidential limousines across the ocean and provide security for the whirlwind trip was uncertain.
Mr. Obama was in Copenhagen for just five hours and did not stay for the vote. He learned Chicago lost in the first round while watching a CNN transmission whose signal cut in and out as Air Force One passed over Cabot Strait between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.
A sense of stunned bewilderment suffused Air Force One and the White House. Only after the defeat did many advisers ask questions about the byzantine politics of the Olympic committee. Valerie Jarrett, the president’s senior adviser and a Chicago booster who persuaded him to make the trip while at the United Nations last week, had repeatedly compared the contest to the Iowa caucuses.
But officials said the administration did not independently verify Chicago’s chances, relying instead on the Chicago 2016 committee assertions that the city had enough support to finish in the top two. Mr. Obama, Michelle Obama, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Ms. Jarrett worked the phones in recent weeks without coming away with a sense of how behind Chicago really was.
The clueless Obamas, Jarrett, and Biden worked Iowa, or rather Copenhagen without ACORN and the thuggery of the Hopium addled and were defeated – by a secret vote. The secret vote in Hopenhagen prevented thuggery so Obama lost. Hooray for the secret ballot which is not found at caucuses.
To all those defending the Obama Hopenhagen boobery: save your breath. Stop blaming the Olympic Committee for the vote your guy lost due to hubris. Fact is the Obamas were in “stunned bewilderment” because they believed their own hype, their own publicity stunts. Don’t blame it on Rio either. Blame it on reality. Oh, and about that “Hopenhagen”, there actually is a website of Obama Hopium addled actually pushing Hopenhagen Hopium on climate change.

Far from Hopenhagen, in New York City, Saturday Night Live continues to bore the nation. But a funny thing about Saturday Night Live, the only funny thing about Saturday Night Live, even those dullards are waking up to
David Letterman Obama’s boobery.
SNL is still underplaying the damage Obama is doing to the United States but something is something. At least SNL agrees with us that Obama and his record are a Big Zero. At the sulfurous DailyKooks site, when asked if the SNL skit is “unfair” or “on the mark”, the consensus at the Hopium den is the skit is “on the mark”. Those poor DailyKooks, infiltrated by apostates.
Apostates at the London Times too:
There has been a growing narrative taking hold about Barack Obama’s presidency in recent weeks: that he is loved by many, but feared by none; that he is full of lofty vision, but is actually achieving nothing with his grandiloquence.
Chicago’s dismal showing yesterday, after Mr Obama’s personal, impassioned last-minute pitch, is a stunning humiliation for this President. It cannot be emphasised enough how this will feed the perception that on the world stage he looks good — but carries no heft.
It was only the Olympic Games, the White House will argue — not a high-stakes diplomatic gamble with North Korea. It is always worthwhile when Mr Obama sells America to the rest of the world, David Axelrod, his chief political adviser, said today. But that argument will fall on deaf ears in the US. Americans want their presidents to be winners.
Mr Obama was greeted — as usual — like a rock star by the IOC delegates in Copenhagen — then humiliated by them. Perception is reality. A narrow defeat for Chicago would have been acceptable — but the sheer scale of the defeat was a bombshell, and is a major blow for Mr Obama at a time when questions are being asked about his style of governance.
World leaders sized up Obama and decided he is a celebrity wannabee. So world leaders gave Obama the soul craving celebrity he wants for himself and then smartly picked the pockets of Uncle Sam while Obama grinned.
Whether it’s Hopenhagen or North Korea, the contempt for Obama is universal among the Hopium-free. When world leaders get together in Hopenhagen, or Geneva, or New York City, and ask themselves if it is possible to praise Obama then slap his face, the answer is always the same: “Yes, we can.”
The rational are driven to shout: Hillary, help us. Hillary, save us.

Last year we denounced Barack Obama for his foolish “no preconditions, meet anywhere, anytime” foreign policy pronouncements, which Hillary opposed. The naughty Mrs. Smith reminds us of later videos which mocked Obama for the same reasons and those videos are as fresh as a Lyndon Johnson daisy.
The Hopium addled want to deny the Waterloo at Hopenhagen but that won’t be easy:
In my judgment, what happened Friday will begin to cement an image about Obama that is negative — that his supposed “golden touch” is very nearly the opposite; that his rhetorical talents and appeal are vastly overstated (he delivers a major health-care speech to a joint session of Congress and it does nothing to move the needle; he then makes a personal appeal to the IOC and Chicago is dropped from the list in the first round); and that he is a surprisingly weak figure who is easily rolled by Democrats on Capitol Hill, by adversaries around the world, and, now, by the IOC.
We need a leader, not a prom king.
The Copenhagen debacle came on the heels of the groveling spectacle that was Obama’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly.
Before the world’s largest collection of mass murderers and tyrants, Obama continued the apology tour he commenced after assuming office, repeating his Cairo mantra that “no world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed,” among other contrite platitudes. In the rough-and-tumble of foreign affairs, as in life, people don’t respect those who don’t respect themselves, and the world has responded resoundingly to our post-national president’s periodic penitence.[snip]
If Barack Obama’s suave, “citizen of the world” charm can’t even get us beyond the first round of an international sporting competition, what does that say about his ability to garner support for solving far more serious and intractable problems?
Big Zero Obama went to Hopenhagen hoping for a pony. What he got was a black eye, and a slap in the face, not from “ungrateful” Michelle this time, but from faceless bureaucrats.
Maybe it’s time for Barack and Michelle to sell the Rezko house and look at property in St. Helena, or Alcatraz. Accomplish-less Obama will find he is not welcome in Copenhagen but there is a place for him in the footnotes of Waterloo.
