Update: Too many Obama flim-flams in tonight’s speech to count. The interesting “metric” of his amazing influence that Obama has set up is the call for Americans to call their congressional representatives. If there is NOT a flood of calls to Congress will Big Media feast on that fact? We doubt it. If there is a flood of calls supporting Obama Big Media will dance in the streets and blare the fact in headlines however. Will Obama melt down the congressional phones lines tonight/tomorrow – or are Americans ignoring the boob?
After Obama waved his flags and called for calls it was John Boner, er Boehner’s, website that melted down after his speech. Boehner did very well tonight simply by appearing as a tube-sock-less man speaking to the nation immediately after Barack Obama. Boehner also managed to swing several gut punches that hit ol’ flabby hard. Where are the jobs?
Like us, Krauthammer is watching to see if Obama really can “go to the people”. Our bet is that if the phone lines in Congress melt down tomorrow they will melt down in opposition to Barack Obama – the flim-flam man from Chicago.
In the debt ceiling theater of absurdities Barack Obama has two political goals: (1) appear to be in charge in order to get the credit for whatever happens; (2) get a something/anything deal that extends past election day November 2012.
Those two political goals are the reason Jell-O’bama will torment the heat weary nation tonight. The entire publicity stunt style and substance is “kind of like sticking a balled-up tube sock down the front of the budget trousers.”
Other than a “balled-up tube sock” there is not much more to see from fake Obama’s Jell-O
press conference speech. Obama will try to grab credit for getting something done even though he is considered by the negotiators to be a stumbling block boob not a full participant in whatever garbage is produced. Also not to be forgotten is that a fake plan filled with gimmicks, like the Reid plan, will not prevent economic disaster brought forth from credit agencies.
