Oh, he’s a wily one. He’s a crafty one. We’ve called him a boob, with a capital B since 2007. We noted in our last article that he’s taken a successful military operation and turned it to boobery – think King Midas in reverse. Just about everyone acknowledges what we have written about the most recent boobery.
But be not deceived. He is a Boob (remember you can’t spell “Boob” without “B.O.”), of that there is no doubt. But when it comes to his own self-interest, his own self-advancement – he is a wily, crafty, master genius. That’s lantern-jawed Michelle Obama’s assessment. Ol’ “Scowly” knows whereof she speaks.
Yesterday, the crafty Boob (we know that’s an oxymoron but it accurately describes Obama) headed to New York City to
torment the citizenry give a speech designed to give himself a halo as the man who shot Liberty Valence Osama Bin Laden. Obama was accompanied at Ground Zero by Rudy Giuliani (Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton refused to be props).
Recall Rudy in 2008? Every response that came out of his mouth was “9/11”. That tactic did not help him win the Republican nomination. Barack Obama, taking a page from Rudy, wants to run an entire campaign on attacking his opponents as “racists” and now he wants to add the Bin Laden narrative to his campaign catchphrases. In short, Obama wants the capture of Bin Laden to be synonymous with his own name – we’ll call the strategy “Obama Bin Laden”.
But the wily Boob knows that an overt display of saying “Bin Laden, Bin Laden” at every turn will turn off the electorate. Obama does not want to face the backlash and ridicule that Rudy suffered. Besides Barack Obama knows Big Media will do much of the work for him in that regard (as well as in the “racist!” demagoguery). Barack Obama knows comedians will do his work for him. Barack Obama knows that his usual trick is to let his paid henchmen (or affiliate former paid henchmen like Burton) do the dirty work (they now have a website called “GutsyCall” which redirects to the Obama campaign website).
Why “spike the football” when the Big Media refs will do it for you?
“David Beamer, father of 9/11 victim Todd Beamer on FOX News: “I feel some chagrin now, though, about how the rest of it has been handle. And frankly it started May Day, 2011 when the president announced what had happened. The excessive use of the personal pronoun that he used in his remarks, I really felt that was the beginning of the Commander-in-Chief putting too much spotlight on himself, taking too much credit for what the remarkable Americans had done. And of course it’s only now accelerated to a greater degree in the media.”
Obama has to pretend to be humble while fluffing his feathers enough to cause a fuss and make everyone take notice of his flapping about. Flying about from Ground Zero to military bases is a way to squawk like a hummingbird pretending to have laid an ostrich egg. Widely announcing a “secret” meeting with the team that offed Bin Laden is another way to “have your cake and eat it too”.
Barack Obama ordered a full publicity stunt campaign to “spike the football” – for himself – not the country. The Obama publicity stunt machine will continue to roll, “Applause” signs are at the ready, even as Obama acts like a shy country girl waiting for a suitor bearing chocolates or some lazy daisies. Obama can act like a shy country girl but he is more like the fertility experiment called “Octomom”.
Barack Obama also knows that he and the White House have bungled and boobed. The shy country girl act separates Barack Obama from answering questions about all that boobery. Obama might be a harlot in scarlet red dress but he will continue to pretend he is wearing a virgin white wedding dress. Meanwhile “Carney the Clown” is taking the hits for the undeniable boobery:
“There is increasing concern in Washington that Jay Carney, the new White House Press Secretary, isn’t up to the job. Even when faced with an innocuous question that requires only that he trot out the official line, he looks completely stunned, as if the questioner is Bob Woodward asking him about Deep Throat. He gathers himself, embarks on a stuttering reply, pauses for what seems like an eternity, then starts gabbling, tripping over his words, rephrasing what he’s just said, then looking plaintively back at the questioner as if to say, “How did I do? Was that okay? Or would you like me to try again?”
Get the boy a TelePrompTer. Jay “Carney the Clown” is the face of Obama and that face is a clown face:
“This is a pivotal moment in Barack Obama’s presidency, a moment when the eyes of the world are locked on Washington. In the global battle for hearts and minds, it is essential that the leader of the free world exudes an air of calm authority at this time. Yet the White House’s handling of the media in the aftermath of Sunday’s events has been breathtakingly amateurish, planting seeds of doubt about the legality of the operation and about Osama bin Laden’s death that would not otherwise be there. The constantly changing narrative – or “fact pattern”, as one White House official described it – suggests that the president and his advisers have been caught on the hop and have no clear strategy for dealing with the fallout from bin Laden’s death. This is epitomised by the halting, timid delivery of Jay – “How’m I doin’?” – Carney, who must bear some of the responsibility for this communications failure. [snip]
President Obama is coming dangerously close to snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Somehow, he and his Press Secretary have created the impression that Operation Geronimo was carried out by the Keystone Kops rather than an elite unit of Navy SEALs. In fact, the only amateurs in this unfolding story are in the White House.”
Obama is more than happy to throw someone else under the bus for his failures. “Carney the Clown” is about to feel rubber on his back.
While Obama parades through the streets with red lipstick, fishnet stockings, and lots of makeup, all the while telling the cops she is not a harlot out to make a buck – the bucks are scarce for a lot of Americans. The Obama campaign will continue to shout “racist!” to shut opponents up and will shout “Bin Laden, Bin Laden” to steal the valor and glory from others – because they have to.
They have to smear and steal valor because something has to be done to distract from the rising flood waters called the American economy:
“Herbert Walker Bush’s nemesis should also strike a familiar and ominous chord for President Obama. It was the economy. By mid-1992, a comfortable economic climate marked by low interest and inflation rates had given way to a rise in unemployment that displaced 7.8 percent of the American workforce. By September, the Census Bureau was reporting that 14.2 percent of Americans lived in poverty.
Today’s Quinnipiac poll shows virtually no change in Obama’s previous low approval rating when it comes to his handling of the economy. Of those queried, 57% diaapprove [sic] of his performance in this area, while only 38% approve.
Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, is quoted as saying: The killing of Osama bin Laden has helped President Barack Obama’s popularity but not massively. The number of people opposed to his re-election has dropped, although they seem to have moved to ‘undecided,’ rather than to the pro-Obama column.”
“Without acceleration in job growth, the economy is unlikely to achieve the sustainable growth trajectory that is typical of an economy that is supposedly in its second year of recovery and technically has transitioned into expansion,” said Steven Ricchiuto, the chief economist for Mizuho Securities USA.
About 13.7 million people were out of work in April, among them 5.8 million people who have been jobless for six months or longer. In March, the number of people who were unemployed was 13.5 million, with 6.1 million of them considered the long-term unemployed. In April, about 64.2 percent of adults were either in the work force or looking for a job, the fourth consecutive month it has been at that level, which is the lowest labor participation rate in a quarter-century.”
Bin Laden is dead but increasingly so is the supposed American economic recovery. Obama promised below 8.5% unemployment if his stimulus scam was passed. It passed and the American economy is passing away as well. Obama’s visit to the Allison Transmission plant in Indianapolis today failed to mention the $62 million in taxpayer dollars it received – $82,666 per employee. Meager results.
Barack Obama won’t mention the jobs report, or the housing report, or the dreaded double dip. Barack Obama won’t “spike the football” so that Americans can feel good about their country. Barack Obama will “spike the football” for his own glory – stolen valor.
Barack Obama will continue to do the whore stroll. He will shamelessly exhibit himself in borrowed clothes. As the economy continues to flounder, expect to hear the shouts of “racist”. Expect to see more plunder of the valor of others.
