You have not read it elsewhere and probably never will – but it was the gold curtains. The gold curtains spoke the loudest. This disconnected from reality mess of a man, who was gifted the Democratic nomination, surrounded himself like a foreign potentate in gorgeous gold curtains.
Turn off the sound from Thursday’s love-in and the gold curtains spoke more than the flowery, stumbling, drivel from the TelePrompTer. The message: I got mine, screw you.
Who else but Barack Obama would go on vacation at a time like this? Having spent a few, forced on him, obligatory hours, less than it takes for one of his many golf games, Obama left the Gulf and all those White Working Class human beings. “Why bother,” he must have thought, “they are not my coalition.”
Who else but Barack Obama can possibly think that a few flowery words and some pretend concern, with stage props amassed on the beaches, will continue to fool? Obama is a fool who thinks you can fool all of the people all of the time.
Who else but Barack Obama recycles fake concern with recycled TelePrompTer verbiage garbage? Bret Baier noted the recycled verbiage:
My Job right now is just to make sure that everybody in the Gulf understand, this is what I wake to in the morning and this is what I go to bed at night thinking about.”
Obama thug Gibbs on January 20, 2010:
“[President Obama] wakes up in the morning and he goes to bed at night thinking about how to make people’s lives better – how to create that environment for creating jobs…”
Barack Obama on September 11, 2009 and multiple times:
“My greatest responsibility is the security of the American people. It’s the first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning. It’s the last thing I think about when I go to sleep at night.”
Why bother writing something original? He simply does not care. His frat boy writers don’t care. They are from another world.
In that world, Hopium is guzzled, the words are flowery and hard working Americans are held in disdain.
“Obama skipped the memorial service for the 11 workers killed on the rig earlier this week to fly to California, where he collected $1.7 million for Democrats and toured a solar panel plant. On the day when the significant clots of oil started appearing on the Louisiana coast, Obama was sitting down for an interview to talk hoops with TNT’s Marv Albert.”
In her latest writing we discover Big Pink stalker Peggy Noonan still does not fully understand the selfishness at the bottomless, self-centered, opportunistic vapidity called Barack Obama. Noonan at least begins to understand that many Democrats, even the ones who pretend otherwise (and we won’t name names today), have not forgotten 2008 nor are they, like us, “reconciled” to the Chicago clown. Noonan writes:
“What continues to fascinate me is Mr. Obama’s standing with Democrats. They don’t love him. Half the party voted for Hillary Clinton, and her people have never fully reconciled themselves to him. But he is what they have. They are invested in him. In time—after the 2010 elections go badly—they are going to start to peel off. The political operative James Carville, the most vocal and influential of the president’s Gulf critics, signaled to Democrats this week that they can start to peel off. He did it through the passion of his denunciations.”
Unlike Noonan, the Washington Post still does not understand the usually-below-the-surface and thus far mostly civil war within the Dimocratic Party. But the Post does help us understand why the fear of Clintons still motivates conservatives and Republicans who don’t realize Obama should be their target and that they need to abandon their feral hatreds and tap into the cerebral cortex.
Some conservatives understand their target should be Obama. Some conservatives however cannot help but give in to the feral when that Clinton moon shines on them. But thanks to the Washington Post and their dimwitted coverage we do understand the Clinton hatred a bit more because at some level they know that Obama is a boob and Hillary and Bill Clinton are smart:
“In a toxic environment where candidates are running away from the establishment, Clinton has swooped in to Arizona, Georgia, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York and Pennsylvania, and he is expected to make more stops before November’s midterm elections.
Republicans have taken notice, suggesting that Clinton might play a bigger role this cycle than Obama. “President Obama spends his days in the Oval Office, but it appears, more and more, that he has no idea how to use it,” said GOP strategist Kevin Madden. “Bill Clinton isn’t in the Oval Office these days, but he knows how to use the presidency.”
The “toxic environment” is code language for “Obama is poison.” The ‘knows how to use it’ language is code for “Bill Clinton is competent and knows what he is doing but Barack Obama is a boob, an incompetent boob.” Which brings us back to Peggy Noonan’s latest column.
After her wink and nod support of Barack Obama in 2008, Noonan does get some of the horror but not the full horror of what has been unleashed from the swamps of Chicago. Noonan now whines: “He Was Supposed To Be Competent”:
“I don’t see how the president’s position and popularity can survive the oil spill. This is his third political disaster in his first 18 months in office. And they were all, as they say, unforced errors, meaning they were shaped by the president’s political judgment and instincts.
There was the tearing and unnecessary war over his health-care proposal and its cost. There was his day-to-day indifference to the views and hopes of the majority of voters regarding illegal immigration. And now the past almost 40 days of dodging and dithering in the face of an environmental calamity. I don’t see how you politically survive this.
The president, in my view, continues to govern in a way that suggests he is chronically detached from the central and immediate concerns of his countrymen. This is a terrible thing to see in a political figure, and a startling thing in one who won so handily and shrewdly in 2008. But he has not, almost from the day he was inaugurated, been in sync with the center. The heart of the country is thinking each day about A, B and C, and he is thinking about X, Y and Z. They’re in one reality, he’s in another.”
Noonan does not understand that that amazing Obama “judgment” and that “won” and the “shrewdly” were all figments of her imagination. Obama had to be dragged across the finish line after running a campaign in which any of the many glaring campaign mistakes and lies (Wright, “bitter”, “clinging”, “Punjab”) were forgiven by Noonan and the Big Media hypocrites and liars. That fairy tale good “judgment” was always political calculation and a fawning Big Media that worshiped not vetted.
That “shrewdly” was Big Media protection and a Dimocratic establishment that we now know conspired behind the scenes to gift Obama the nomination. The Big Media protection extended to the Tenessee floods and more than a month of ignoring the gusher of petroleum death beneath the surface of the Gulf. Big Media protected their stooge Obama. Big Media shilled the great Obama “judgement” and the supposed shrewd victory. It was all a fairy tale.
During the campaign and even now it is considered “racist” code language to describe Obama as alien to America (the graphic of Obama as alien we again publish today was a production of the fever mills of the “B.O. Generation” and was produced by Obama supporters). But Noonan describes an alien figure who addresses his concerns not “normal” “small town” “bitter” “clinging” American concerns. Obama as alien is not “racist” it is reality.
Noonan also echoes our analogy from “Obama’s Oil Slick” that the Obama “alien-ness” and disconnection to normal America, the scandals, the misdemeanors, and Obama’s Katrina are all related. We wrote in early May:
When the Obaminations began during the primary elections of 2008, the PINO websites were on the beach sunning themselves and shouting “racist!” at all who saw what was coming. The Obama oil slick was on it’s way to shore long ago. The flames from the Obama oil slick were visible long ago.
Now the oil slick is coming home… to the roost.
Noonan belatedly echoes:
“They saw the dollars gushing night and day, and worried that while everything looked the same on the surface, our position was eroding. They have worried about a border that is in some places functionally and of course illegally open, that it too is gushing night and day with problems that states, cities and towns there cannot solve.
And now we have a videotape metaphor for all the public’s fears: that clip we see every day, on every news show, of the well gushing black oil into the Gulf of Mexico and toward our shore. You actually don’t get deadlier as a metaphor for the moment than that, the monster that lives deep beneath the sea.[snip]
This is what happened with Katrina, and Katrina did at least two big things politically. The first was draw together everything people didn’t like about the Bush administration, everything it didn’t like about two wars and high spending and illegal immigration, and brought those strands into a heavy knot that just sat there, soggily, and came to symbolize Bushism.”
The monster, dear Peggy, is not beneath the sea. It comes from Chicago.
As the Blagojevich trial gusher uncorks this coming week, as the gusher of corruptions hurtles unstopped from Pennsylvania to the Colorado, as the thick ooze of crude erupts beneath the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Americans understand the danger which gathers force. The propaganda gusher on Thursday, the day of the Obama gold curtain appearance, declared the gusher of oil was blocked. But it is not so.
“HOUSTON — BP engineers failed again to plug the gushing oil well on Saturday, a technician working on the project said, representing yet another setback in a series of unsuccessful procedures the company has tried a mile under the sea to stem the flow spreading into the Gulf of Mexico.”
The attempted propaganda gusher to shut down investigations into the Sestack scandal are equally unplugged. The New York Times quandary is the law versus Obama love and the “everybody does it” defense:
“Most parents do not accept that excuse from their children and the public should not accept it here,” he said. “A line may have been crossed. But we do not know all the facts right now, and we cannot fairly judge the situation until we do.”
We need a gusher of investigations and facts to counter the gusher of corruption and lies. Obama’s oily holes of sewer corruption must be plugged with brutal force if we are ever to wash ourselves clean.
