We’re not kidding. Barack Obama is a great bargainer and negotiator. The reason why we are forced to defend the boob is because there is great wailing, gnashing of teeth, and lamentations across the Hopium dens and Big Media publications denouncing (or at least “questioning”, which for an Obama Hopium Guzzler is akin to a great denunciation) Obama’s negotiating skills.
Why, the Hopium Guzzlers ask, is their Boob God Obama surrendering on issue after issue and getting nothing, absolutely nothing, in return? We have an answer. It’s an answer we have been providing to the witless dolts for years. Are you ready to hear the answer?
Are you really ready for the answer?
Well here it is: Obama is a great bargainer and negotiator when it comes to getting something for himself.
Yup. Dolts, idiots, Hopium Guzzlers, how else do you think Obama got that great Rezko house in Chicago if not for his great bargaining, great negotiating skills and willingness to sell anything and anyone out?
And there is no contradiction in calling Obama a great bargainer and a boob simultaneously – he’s a great bargainer for his personal advancement and personal interests – he’s a boob because he has no world view (if any) that comports with reality and because he lacks the experience and intellectual depth (yup, he’s a dummy no matter what you read) to learn from experience, preferring to bitterly cling to the insults and abandonment dreams of his father.
On issue after issue Barack Obama has (and will continue to) publicly emit flowery words and in secret work to stab people in the back who applauded his flowery worded speeches. But the dolts don’t get it even though we explained it long ago:
“Cosmologists look at the universe and decide upon a theory of what they are seeing.
In earlier Earth history cosmologists agreed that the universe revolved around the earth. These cosmologists fought and derided those who believed the Sun was the center of our star system. Eventually the cosmologists who, based on evidence – not faith nor hope, determined the Earth revolved around the Sun were proven right.
The same can be said of the current debate about Barack Obama. Here at Big Pink we have contended that Barack Obama is a flim-flam man. Obama is only interested, as his own wife has stated, in his selfish self-advancement and careerism. According to us, Barack Obama is an opportunist who has never accomplished anything but his own self-advancement; Obama is not qualified to be president; is a boob; and lacks a basic rational world-view as well as any experience for the job he has been gifted.”
But for all that, these Obama worshiping dolts continue to try to explain “why is Obama doing this?” when the answer is staring them right in the face. These “reality community” well educated “scientific principles” idiots abandon reality, and scientific principles when they refuse to accept that the square peg of their perception of Obama cannot fit into the round hole of reality. So they continue to create obviously faulty theorems and wacky cosmologies to try to explain their defective star’s role in the political universe.
E.J. Dionne who must be numbered among the most witless is befuddled today about Obama’s clumsiness and stupidity. Today Dionne asks “Where Is Obama Going?” Dionne starts his teen-age musings about Obama with an anecdote which has little to do about what we discuss today but which is revealing of the political climate and amusing as well:
“As I was passing through security at Boston’s Logan Airport on Tuesday night, a TSA worker discovered a penny in one of the bins that had just gone through the screener.
He picked up the coin, turned to a colleague and said with a grim smile: “This is your Obama bonus.”‘
If we wrote that amusing and revealing anecdote we would hear the familiar “racist!” charge. No doubt if it was not his own anecdote, Dionne would call those TSA agents “racists!”. But back to the point of our discussion and Dionne’s head-scratching about Obama:
“Which made me wonder: Is President Obama’s strategy of offering pre-emptive concessions destined to make enemies of his potential friends in the electorate without winning over any of his adversaries?
The idea of freezing the pay of federal workers could be a sensible part of a larger, long-term deal that would combine spending reductions with tax increases. It’s an obvious element in any negotiation. But Obama simply threw in the federal workers in exchange for — well, as best I can tell, nothing. And in the short term, shouldn’t jobs and rising incomes be a higher priority than austerity?
Worse, every signal out of the White House is that it is prepared to cave in to Republican demands for a temporary extension of all of the Bush tax cuts, including those for millionaires who are in rather less need of additional income than security workers at Logan or nurses at government hospitals.”
Dionne engages in a variation of the game “Twister” as he tries to explain what Obama is doing. Most of the “Twister” defenses typically fall back on the Obama is Mr. Spock of Star Trek playing a Bobby Fischer eleven dimensional chess match. But the chess explanation quickly falls apart when the results come in. What even the eleven dimension chess playing apologists eventually realize is that the goal of chess, war, and politics is not to play the game well – but to win.
The big hurdle for the Hopium Guzzlers hoping to run on the fast track to reality is that Obama’s personal interests and personal advancement is not what is good for most Americans or even for them. But Hopium is a strong drug and they cannot bear the thought that they have been so thoroughly bamboozled. Pity the poor Hopium Guzzlers!
While scratching their heads over their bobble-head boob god the Hopium Guzzlers do not forget to demonstrate their ignorance by attacking “Clintonian triangulation”. What these dolts and idiots do not understand is that Bill Clinton, as he himself said, zigged to the right and zagged to the left, but Bill Clinton knew what direction he was going to take the country in. Bill Clinton experienced defeats but he won the war. Abraham Lincoln too used to say that he might go to the left bank of the river then the right bank of the river but that he was still moving upstream. No so with Barack Obama – he scores a “win” as something that he assumes will be popular and that no matter how fleetingly makes him look good – even if that “win” leads to losing the political war.
With Barack Obama the raft of state is spinning and twirling and at the mercy of the tides and the currents. But not to worry, as the raft of state gets tossed and ground down, the captain is wearing a very spiffy outfit with spotlights on him and things are going great for him. El Capitan Obama says to the crew “ignore your real jobs, just keep the spotlights on me, make me look as good as possible, come play basketball and golf with me, give me speeches with flowery words scrolling through the TelePromTer and adoring audiences – and don’t forget to schedule my Hawaiian vacation and other recreations for myself and my sleeveless partner.”
Obama can’t roll down Ol’ Man River and be a leader captain because he does not know or care what he is or what he thinks (all he thinks about is himself) policy-wise. Here’s a laugh from the conservative HotAir which mocks the clown with his own words:
“Barack Obama must be having one hell of an identity crisis. He campaigned for office as a post-partisan moderate, but has governed as a big government tax-and-spender. When talking to the New Democrat Coalition in March 2009 — just after his Keynesian plan to spend $800 billion for economic stimulus — Obama told them he was a New Democrat. Five weeks ago, Obama told liberal bloggers that he is really a progressive. Tom Elia notes a passage in a New York Times article by Matt Bai reporting that Obama privately insists he’s a … don’t laugh … Blue Dog Democrat?”
He’s a Barack Obama Dimocrat. Whatever he thinks makes him look good in the immediate moment Obama will demand be done. These concepts are very hard to understand especially for those who are well educated and think they are high-information very smart people – when in fact they are dolts.
Case in point for the ones who think they are smart and worldly wise but in fact are silly, foolish pom-poms at the parade: the LeftTalkers.
“I have no idea what Obama and the Dems are thinking on these issues. Either they are this stupid or this incompetent. As many things happened that I disagreed with during this Administration, the month after the election has been incomprehensible to me on any level.
My refrain is “pols are pols and do what they do.” But what they do is generally intended to help them win election or reelection. Nothing that Obama and the Dems have done seems geared towards that end. It is impossible to understand.”
It’s impossible to understand only when you refuse to accept the evidence. But of course these are the “vote for the media darling” cadres of the Hopium Guzzling Brigades. The difference between the unembarrassed Hopium Guzzlers and the Left Talker Hopium Guzzling Obama cadres is that at least the unembarrassed Hopium Guzzlers don’t stand around sipping Slurpees and acting sophisticated and above it all and pretending that they support Obama only out of necessity.
The refrain of “pols are pols and do what they do” is excuse making. It explains nothing but appears ever so sophisticated and sounds like it actually means something. But it is a phrase soaked in meaninglessness. “Cancer patients are cancer patients and do what they do”, “trees are trees and do what they do”, “Obamas are Obamas and do what they do” “bacteria are bacteria and do what they do” – phrases which make the intellectually bereft feel themselves wise and worldly.
Those of us not making excuses for a self-centered boob who should never have been president understand that politicians have the same frailties as all humans but that the worthy ones know when to stand their ground and when to seek common ground.
Those of us not making excuses for a self-centered boob who should never have been president understand that the United States is governable not a helpless pitiful giant with a pea brain. Granted we have fallen on hard times but it is our leaders who have failed us.
That Obama became president without any worthwhile experience or accomplishments is testament to his extraordinary abilities in bargaining and negotiating. Unfortunately the United States and the American people lost out in that corrupt bargain.
