Obama weakness gushes forth. Obama vulgarities gush forth. Obama excuses gush forth. You might say Obama is all “wee weed” up.
Last time Obama was all “wee weeded” up he went for a wee vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. Now weak-kneed Obama is looking to “kick ass” (inducing general laughter at the thought of the string-bean from Chicago making physical threats and pretending he has testicular, um, fortitude), and confessing his inability to suck well. Can the boob do anything right?
Obama’s latest whine? “I’m no Superman” exclaims the exasperated One.
But it was not so long ago that Obama and his champions were saying exactly that. “Obama is Superman” claimed the Hopium addicted and Hopium impaired.
Now that Americans are demanding competence, Obama whines that Americans are expecting too much from him. “I’m not Superman… I’m not Superman…. I’m not Superman.”
The latest Obama whine comes from a White House video, that rarely loads, so you might have trouble watching it. More incompetence from the newly Christianed “non-Superman”.
Ani, via Sunlen Miller, via the White House has the quote from the impotent One:
“Even though I am President of the United States my powers are not limitless,” Obama said last Friday at Camardelle’s Live Bait and Boiled Seafood, “So I can’t dive down there and plug the hole. I can’t suck it up with a straw. All I can do is make sure that I put honest, hardworking, smart people in place.”
“I will do everything in my power to do right by you guys. And everybody along the coast.”
The president’s quote – previously unseen by the pool of reporters traveling with him not allowed access to this specific exchange – was posted today on the White House website as part of their weekly video posting, “West Wing Week.” The weekly video summarizes the president’s week by featuring behind-the-scenes footage shot by White House videographers.
“Skip ahead to 3:00 for presidential oratorical glory. This really is the new meme among his supporters, believe it or not, per the fact that the video below comes from the White House itself: Not only shouldn’t our global messiah be expected to plug the damn hole — he’s not Superman, people! — but evidently he shouldn’t be expected to find out if there’s any containment boom sitting in a warehouse somewhere waiting to be used either. What he’s supposed to do, apparently, is go around reminding people why he’s really not to blame. I’ll say this for him: He’s awfully good at that, at least.
Yup, it’s the new excuse gushing forth from Obama Hopium guzzlers.
Obama supporters used to say Obama is Superman. Obama and Obama supporters used to claim Obama had all sorts of remarkable powers. But that was up and until Obama actually had to perform and do the job.
Now the excuses gush forth. “He’s no Superman.” Yesterday, the “He’s no Superman” excuses began in the Washington Post with Paul Starobin. Paul Starobin is “a staff correspondent for National Journal and a contributing editor to the Atlantic“. Yup, that National Journal and that Atlantic.
“Completing a full spin through the revolving door, Linda Douglass, a long-time CBS and ABC correspondent before jumping aboard the Obama campaign in 2008 – followed by HHS and White House positions promoting ObamaCare — has re-joined The Atlantic as a Vice President who “will concentrate on company strategy and communications,” the Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz reported online Thursday morning.
Before joining the Obama campaign as senior strategist and senior campaign spokesperson on the road, Douglass toiled for National Journal, part of Atlantic Media which also owns The Hotline. Her first stint in the new administration was as Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services, followed by Communications Director for the White House’s Health Reform Office, a slot she left in April.”
Linda Douglas at the Atlantic and National Journal and Paul Starobin is already sucking up. Maybe he should be sent with a straw to the Gulf. Yesterday Starobin started the “He’s no Superman” narrative. Starobin prefers to blame the Americans who Obama and Obama supporters victimized with lies:
“Why can’t President Obama stop the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico? Why can’t he get the Israelis and Palestinians to stop squabbling and make peace? Why can’t he get the Europeans to contribute more troops to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan? Why can’t he forge a global treaty to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases?
Why can’t he . . . well, you get the point. Obama, it turns out, is not Superman. In (unhappy) truth, no president is, no matter how politically gifted and no matter how many people, in this country and around the world, root for his success.”
The man is an amazing suck-up. Send him to the Gulf with a straw.
“Obama in particular plays to this seductive but fanciful notion. In electing him president in 2008, Americans seemed to think that “yes, we can” would become, almost overnight, “and so we have done,” with a charmed figure — all the more so for his astonishingly rapid rise to the top — replacing a spent one, the stoop-shouldered George W. Bush.
Liberal partisans were quick to offer parallels between Obama and Franklin Delano Roosevelt — the most successful and beloved president of the 20th century, with an unapologetic faith in activist government.”
Paul! Stop it! You are embarrassing yourself. You are a total suck-up.
But Paul and the Obama Hopium Guzzlers won’t stop. Now it’s blame the victim. It’s Americans who voted for the unqualified Obama, after being assured he was indeed Superman, who are to blame -says suck-up Paul:
“Obama, fairly enough, is reaping what he sowed in assigning himself an impossible mission as a global savior. But Americans are his culpable enablers. Few people want to hear this, but he’s doing the best he can, considering the difficult circumstances that he and the nation face. And what he needs most from the public is a quality that distinguishes adults from children: patience.
Or, put another way: America, grow up!”
What a suck-up. You grow up Paul. Suck-up! Go play Obama apologist Bingo.
Obama and Obama supporters, before the incompetence was in full display, did outright claim “Obama is Superman.”
Now Superman Obama faces the Kryptonite gushing from the depths of the Gulf of Mexico and the excuses gush forth. Wait until the first picture of the first dead dolphin, covered in oil shows up and all those little children who love dolphins start crying to their parents and Obama will face killer Kryptonite.
What are most of the Obama Hopium Guzzlers up to these days. Well, they are doing their best to avoid the Gulf oil disaster. Recall that MyDud “ardent environmentalist” we wrote about? The “ardent environmentalist” pouted on the day Obama announced offshore drilling would proceed. The “ardent environmentalist” wanted the big environmental groups to express their rage with “statements of annoyed disappointment”. We mocked this goofball then. We checked to see what storms of outrage come from the “ardent environmentalist” now. We found – NOTHING.
“Ardent environmentalist” is avoiding the Obama Crude gushing in the Gulf like a plague. No comment from “ardent environmentalist” on this catastrophic environmental disaster. His cohort, we kid you not, is whining about the latest cover of Newsweek which portrays Sarah Palin with a halo. Writes this other sad sack:
“The latest edition of Newsweek magazine canonizes former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on its cover as a “saint” in American politics, despite no evidence of Palin performing a miracle during her short time on the national stage.
Quite frankly, the Newsweek cover pictured at left is very unnerving.”
When Obama was repeatedly portrayed as a Mess-iah with halo or a Superman on the covers of the same national rags we doubt this clown complained. That Sarah Palin describes the article as another hit piece from Newsweek and makes the very credible assertion that Newsweek “is going down” escapes the MyDud clown.
MyDud refuses to discuss the Obama mess they helped enable. The NothingLeft clowns who shilled for Obama are likewise silent on the environmental disaster Obama is too impotent and incompetent to do anything about. The NothingLeft clowns have NothingLeft to say.
The lawyers who LeftTalk also are silent on the environmental disaster Obama is too incompetent to do anything about. These LeftTalk lawyers somehow cannot find any legal issues regarding the Gulf oil gusher to write about.
“One website that is run by well educated lawyers trashed Sarah Palin about her daughter’s behavior and her mother-in-law’s behavior, held a perverse “lottery” to determine when Palin would withdraw, chose Obama because he was the “media darling”, and acually dared to declare Obama will be one of our greatest presidents – comparable to FDR.
The same defense lawyer Left-Talker that chortled when Sarah Palin’s mother-in-law got in trouble with the police, the same defense lawyer Left-Talker that rubbed her legs and speculated that Governor Palin’s resignation came on a Friday because Governor Palin “wouldn’t time the announcement on such a slow news day if she weren’t trying to minimize it“; the same defense lawyer Left-Talker who gossiped and convicted Sarah Palin without evidence (“The Alaska Report says a big, dirty scandal is coming. Another Alaska blog mentions an investigation into her finances and reports the money has been raised to pay for the release of the e-mails in the FOIA case, and it should only be a matter of days before they are released.”) and spends an inordinate amount of time drinking with her handsome son (see how ugly speculation can work Left-Talkers?) is now – defending convicted fugitive from justice Roman Polanski and shouting “Free Roman Polanski”. A true hypocrite in need of atoning.”
The LeftTalker, defender of Zazi, on the barricades for Polanski, trashed Sarah Palin because of what Palin’s mother-in-law allegedly did. Now that LeftTalker is ever so concerned, between TV shows, about poor wittle Joran Van der Sloot, the likely serial killer. For Palin, no benefit of the doubt, no presumption of innocence for the acts of someone she barely know. For likely serial killers, tears from the Colorado hypocrite. Not a word about legal issues in the Obama Crude impotence scandal gushing from the Gulf from LeftTalkers.
Obama used to be the “media darling” but now Obama is covered in his own Crud. “Ardent environmentalists” and their cohort used to claim Barack Obama was Clark Kent was Superman.
Now these hypocrites and Obama enablers are silent. Obama waited more than 50 days to meet with the families of those that died in the Gulf explosion. Only when it was politically necessary did Obama finally decide to meet with these Americans. Obama was busy getting applause at Barbara Boxer fundraisers to bother with white working class Americans suffering in the Gulf. If it was George W. Bush or Hillary Clinton who did this….
We always knew Obama was no Superman. We always knew Obama sucked. Now we all know Obama is no Superman. Now we know Obama sucks bad.
